OMGosh! Why does it matter "how tall a man is' vs a woman's height? Our 'society' has A LOT to do with it for sure & it's SAD! Because it should NOT matter! I'm Nicole's height & hate every inch of it BECAUSE I grew up in a society where the 'girl' HAD to be 'TALLER' than the 'guy.' I had (& still do) too many painful & awkward times where guys did NOT want to walk next to me because they were 5' 7'' & "felt emasculated." (A lot of shorter guys have told me this.) I was (& still am) so tired of hearing how "lucky" I am to be my height. Yeah, right.... (Try telling that to a guy who was raised feeling the "woman should always be shorter than the man." And if people don't think it's "no big deal" then try telling that to all the gawkers & whisperering comments when you enter a room on the arm of a slightly shorter guy who already IS wearing boots with a good 1.5" - 2" heel & I'm in my infernal "flats!" I hope people nowadays will STOP raising their kids with the same stupid ideas I was raised with. When I heard my 5'8'' Dad, whom I loved dearly, (but I was his height when I was in the 7th grade & STILL growing :-( ) say without realizing the 'damage' he was to cause me yrs. later, "look at the woman with that shorter man, that looks bad." Had he'd known it hurt my feelings at the time & then later down the road he would be crushed as he was NOT a ''mean guy,'' but just raised in a society where "Men should always be taller (& older- sheeesh, ANOTHER ONE, but for another time, lol) than the woman." I HATE this way of thinking! (& I'm NOT even into 'women's Lib!') But FYI to ALL Parents or 'soon to be' if your daughter is tall PLEASE assure her it's "Okay" for her boyfriend/husband to be shorter & same, but vice versa with your sons as it works Both ways & there is NOTHING wrong with it! This society can & has caused a lot of discord among many couples, in the spotlight & private lives, & KUDOS to Nicole & Keith & for NOT letting their height difference be an issue. Life is too dang short! (Promise, "No pun intended!")

I actually saw him at the airport looking tired as hell once he looked around 173 cm wearing flat shoes but I will give him the benefit of being 174 half cm because it seemed like he hasn't slept yet and was on a long ass flight.

Nope, the world is not full of short guys, it's just that the world is full of tall women, so they make the guys look short. And you wonder why the FEMALE fasion industry requires women to be 5'8-6'0, while the MALE fashion industry requires men that are between 5'11-6'2. Hollywood and the entertainment world has a big demand for taller women.
charlie said on 28/Dec/15
which is it is he 5 foot 10 and a half or 5 foot 8 and a half. everywhere i check hes 5 foot 10 and a half and some pages i see hes listed 5 foot 8 now nicole kidman claims to be 5 10.5 and seeing her in sandles with keith also in sandles at the same height i would assume hes really 5 foot 10.The world is so full of short guys.or perhaps the average male height is 5 foot 7.

Just met him. 5 feet 8.

He always seems to be 5'8 or 5'8.5.
Ax said on 16/Mar/15
I stood next to him and behind him boarding a flight at LA GUARDIA. He was my height not taller. I'm 5'7.5 at the doctors no shoes. I was in converses he was in hiking type boots so maybe he's even shorter. But is say 5'8 in boots for him to be generous.

These could be legitimate 3" elevators imo: Click Here
a well made 2.25" elevator doesn't really look odd on the foot like that.
[Editor Rob: those appear an elevator style much more than some of the shoes tom cruise has worn - and being accused of elevators when they are just normal shoes.]
Mascar said on 17/Jun/14
This guy looks even shorter than Tom Cruise, come on. 5,9 tops.

5 feet 8. Wears hilarious custom wedged boots on red carpets with his heeled wife.
said on 6/Jun/13
Or has Lenny's afro deceived me and they're actually very close in height. Looking again they looked closer in height than was initially apparent. Kravitz still looks as though he edges him out though but probably has a bit of footwear advantage.
[Editor Rob: kravitz can look 5ft 9, sometimes taller with bigger heels.]
said on 6/Jun/13
Rob, you have him listed the same height as Lenny Kravitz.
His Kravitz wearing massive lifts or might he be tall than 5'8.5" and Keith more a flat 5 ft 8?
Cookie said on 5/Apr/13
In his case height doesn't matter, he is perfect in every way.
Silent d said on 4/Feb/13
He doesn't look 175cm. He always looks 5 foot 8.
Michael j said on 22/Jan/13
A friend & I met Keith & both got a photo with him. I'm 5'6.5 & my friend is 5'11. I would say Keith was easily 5'9. Maybe he can shrink down to the 5'8.75 but no lower than that. And before anyone pipes up, no, there was nothing suspicious about his footwear & he wasn't wearing cowboy boots.
Silent d said on 28/Oct/12
5 foot 8.
Shaun said on 10/Sep/12
Maybe 2.5 inches shorter accounting for the cap. 5 ft 8 and Kidman 5'10.5" would seem about right.
said on 10/Sep/12
In flip flops here
Looks like he'd be roughly 2 inches shorter, not quite as short as you think. 5'8"-5'8.5" looks about right for him, I wouldn't want to bet on who would be taller, him or Rob put it that way!!
Silent d said on 29/Dec/11
I always thought he was 5 foot 7 next to kidman. He was barely taller than ellen. If kidman is 179 than keith is 5 foot 8 max. He is definately taller than tom cruise.
Lebensdorf said on 24/Dec/11
He wears high heels. Seriously. High heels. Just search Keith Urban and high heels.
Dj said on 11/Nov/11
OK, I met him, shook his hand and got a hug in Sept. I'm solidly 5'6 and I had to look up and wonder where to put my, uh, hands (I was standing straight, too, because I didn't want to look like an idiot). I have a photograph with him and he's markedly taller than I am in the photo. If I lost 2in from the way I was leaning in the picture he's still 2-3in taller than I am.
I'd say he's no shorter than 5'8.5 when he's in his typical relaxed stance and goes up to 5'9 easily. I doubt he's 5'10 unless he's standing very straight with shoulders back for some reason. Keep in mind that Kidman has incredible posture and that Urban often stands relaxed on one hip (contrapposto), etc. If a person can gain or lose half an inch depending on what time of day they're measured, they can certainly swing an inch in either direction from posture. He often looks about 2in shorter than she is in photographs, and I can believe that between shoes and posture that their medical heights are a lot closer than the day to day reality.

He's 5ft 8.25in max, he looks substantially shorter than Kidman and appears close to 6 inches shorter than Jackman.
michaelj said on 27/Jul/11
Ok, I've met Keith Urban & have a photo with him (that im not gonna post for privacy reasons)& I would say 5ft8.5 - 5.9 SOLID. No shorter than the hight Rob has listed here.
Shaun said on 12/Jul/11
He kind of looks shorter because his head is sort of out of proportion with his body. He's got a big long face and hair which makes his legs and torso looks very short.
Shaun said on 12/Jul/11
K4 says on 1/Mar/11
Jane, Keith is not 5'10, he's 5'8 and Kidman obviously ain't 5'11. She's probably closer to 5'9.
Nearer 6' than 5'9". You seriously have no idea about height.
Shaun said on 8/Jul/11
Sorry but I seriously doubt he is near 5'9" flat barefeet. He does not look taller than Tom Cruise. 5'8" tops.
leo said on 7/Jul/11
met him briefly at sydney radio station mmm about 2 to 3 years ago, i am about 5'7 to 5'7.5 in my work boots, keith was wearing cuban heels and we were at eye to eye, dont know about 5.8 for keith id say 5'7 at best, really nice man and great muso
Gracie said on 29/Jun/11
I've met Keith Urban, hugged him, and stood eye to eye with him I'm five foot eight and three quarter inches (5" 8 3/4"). Keith is maybe 5'8" tall, and he's got a very small frame for a man. But he does have good muscle tone for his size.
lolafalala said on 27/Jun/11
Saw Keith in concert and I'd have to say maybe 5'7" with boots. He looks really small. As for the Kiwi reference, he was born in New Zealand. I prefer my men tall and being 5'6", it would make me feel uncomfortable to be with a short man especially if i wore 4" heels.
Don\'tCareMuch said on 27/Jun/11
"its shameful to be smaller then your wife or girlfriend, its not a problem for most women but it is for guys"
Haha. That's one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. It's average for men to be taller than their girlfriends and wives because on average, men a taller than women.
Are you suggesting anything that isn't average is bad or shameful? That must be a terrible way to live! :)
Anyway, Urban is somewhere in the "average" 5'8 - 5'10" range, probably on the shorter end of that spectrum. Kidman is much taller than average for a woman. Should we fault her for it? Or fault Urban for not being a giant? That would be weird. Let them live!
cid said on 17/Apr/11
i saw him walk by closely in front of me for an autograph session and he was shorter than me by an inch at least, and i'm 5'8. he can't be 5'8.

Jane said on 22/Feb/11
He's 5'10" and Nicole is 5'11" When she wears heels, it makes her taller. And who cares anyway.
bandet said on 21/Feb/11
And NICK, why do you think just because someone walks past you that that is an accurate measure of a height, especially a celeb. Unless you are literally standing eye to eye with a person you can be out by two inches. Try it with strangers, or friends, even.
bandet said on 21/Feb/11
Did anyone watch the grammy's? Beggars belief the height's some of you estimate. He's your average 5ft9, like seacrest. Something goes out of whack when people see a man shorter than a woman, even if she's very tall. And something goes out of whack when any celeb between 5ft8 and 6ft is seen in public, or with a very tall person. It's never gonna change. Most people here can't judge height to save their lives.

elo's picture is the smoking gun, though she looks a step ahead of him
Soviet_Rebel said on 18/Jan/11
@elo: Fantastic picture elo, you got the point
TIME TO DOWNGRADE ROB!
TomBruise said on 18/Jan/11
@ elo - you are on the money. Your pic says it all. If Nic is 5'11", then Keith is no more than 5'6". In your shot, they're both wearing runners, & the difference between their eyelines is a good 5 inches (Keith's eyeline is below Nic's chin!), so 5'6" is right on.
Keep on truckin!
Mr. R said on 25/Nov/10
I am watching him now performing on The Saints-Cowboys game at halftime. He has those big boots on. I met Nicole the night she won her Oscar, and for sure she is 5-11. She is very typical of female celebs who downgrade their height. In pics, she is at least 2 inches taller than him, and that is with his boots. At BEST he is 5-8. Possibly a little less at the end of the day.
BU said on 8/Oct/07
I had my picture taken right next to him. He's not more than 5'7 1/2".
Lady said on 26/Sep/07
I've stood next to keith and he seemed 5'10" for sure
babyblue said on 22/Sep/07
Well, I think timber is the most honest person so far, and I believe he truely IS only 5'7.
said on 19/Sep/07
This article states that keith claimed 5 feet 8 as his height. It also says dustin hoffman is 5 feet 6 which eh could have been when he was young. It mocks tom cruise and states he is two inches shorter than 5 feet 9 katies holmes. Lists Rod stewart as 5 feet 8 and i think its Uk telegraph.
timber said on 23/Aug/07
I agree with Emma: barefoot, Urban is at most an inch shorter than Kidman. He appears more than an inch shorter than she in some candid pics, such as the one "crusfan" posted, where she is in boots and he's in flat shoes, and of course the difference increases when she is in heels. Funny thing is he doesn't look 5-9, or even 5-8...he looks more in the 5-7 range to me, as others here have said.
Emma said on 21/Aug/07
well "anonymous" she was probaly in high heels and if u look in some other pics there very close in height but if u look at "timbers" picture. there in sanddles and i will say he looks alittle shorter then her but there still very close in height and i would say he's between 5f9-10".she's probaly between .5-1" taller.
said on 14/Aug/07
check out this pic and you tell me if this "shortie" is 5'8.5", celeb heights.
said on 15/Jul/07
Rob, where and when did he claim 5 feet 9? i mean do you have any link to that page? Just curious, no offence intended.I just read an article.....its something called men of nicole's heart where they compare keith and tom for nicole and it says something like the extra 3 inches keith has over tom will make sure that nicole doesnt have to look down on her man now and it states that tom is 5 feet 7 and keith is 5 feet 10.
[Editor Rob: the word 'supposedly' is there for a reason, because someone said he gave 175 in a tv interview.]
MarkMark said on 27/May/07
That's a walking picture. I realized some people appear much taller because of the way they walk. I'm exactly 5'8" but i was walking next to a 5'10" guy, and he asked me if I had grown; this impression lasted till I stood still. =p
Pretty strange, but my point is I would take that picture with a grain of salt.
Murrin said on 9/May/07
Look at Timber's photo. Keith & Nicole are the same height. Don't know how MD sees Nicoles 2" taller. The top of her hat is not the top of her head. She'd be a deformed freak if it was.
Bombay Rocker said on 30/Apr/07
whats your point dmeyer...i dont get it?
dmeyer said on 30/Apr/07
even legit 5'10ers dont looks as tall as kidman
austrailia2nashville said on 18/Apr/07
i met keith a little while back and he was the same height as i am, and im 5'9".
said on 11/Apr/07
He looks to be around 4 cms at most shorter than her in that pic, maybe 3 and i believe nicole is around 180 for sure that will make him 176 and i think when he said 5 feet 9, he wasnt actually lying coz look nicole can be 179 which is what she is listed here and then that will make keith 175. He is for sure 5 feet 9 atleast and claims of him being less than 5 feet 8 are absurd, he will look like a midget if he was like 5 feet 6 or whatever people are saying here and he certainly looks normal although ya he does wear dodgy footwear sometimes but that pic is as clear as it can get. I mean she is bent and they have same footwear and i will say there is a lil slope advantage for keith too maybe 2 cms at most but i think 1 cm is fair enough but he looks taller than her in that pic with all this so in my fair guess he is atleast 5 feet 9, no doubt about that.
now look at this...a better angle of that pic Click Here
man he actually can be taller than 5 feet 9 and you guys know what nicole is supposed to be atleast 1.5 inches taller than him and he actually looks quite close to her height. What say Rob.....i think he needs an upgrade for sure...just because he wears big footwear doesnt mean hes shorter than he really is...What do u think ROB....i think its a genuine upgrade in making.
said on 16/Mar/07
can someone comment on this pic of urban and kidman, both in sandals?: Click Here
they appear very similar in height here.

You have got to be kidding, Zindane. This is what this site is all about. lol

how can a celeb get away with lying bout his/her height?
logan said on 17/Sep/06
i work in nashville and he was in my store tonight.
i'm 5'6'' and he was about four inches taller than me.
he was wearing boots(of course) though.
i say 5'8'' even.
leonari said on 14/Aug/06
Again at least 1 full inch over estimated...The guy is as short/tall as Cruise. 5'7" it is...No way is this guy of average height Rob. No offense but don't you see that???????
MD said on 14/Aug/06
Even with the odd walking angles, it's pretty clear that Nicole is more than just 2" taller than him.
Brad said on 14/Aug/06
5' 7" with Garth Brooks' band years ago.
Jennifer said on 28/Jul/06
I stood behind him in line at a restuarant and I am 5'9". He was several inches shorter than me. We both had on flip flops.
Karen said on 17/Jul/06
He could be as little as 5'6 1/2, using the add 2" rule. 5'7 is fine though. I agree--he should be downgraded.
don said on 6/Jun/06
hes very, very clearly no taller then 5ft7.5 and i put the .5 in to be nice..hes short..downgrade him
Carol said on 15/May/06
I met Keith last year - he had his 'stage' boots on and his heels were bigger than mine!!! I'm 5' 5", so I reckon 5' 8" is probably about right. No way is he the 5' 10" his bio claims.......
james said on 28/Apr/06
at one point in my life i would see keith everyday, this going on for a few months. im 5 10 and he is not an inch taller than 5 7

I met him a couple years ago. I'm 5'7 and he was about two or three inches taller than me.
