Comment on the Height of Liev Schreiber

Hey rob,

If you want to compare his height accurately with other actors around his height, you gotta watch ray donovan, 90% of the actors are in the 6'2-3 range including him, he barely stands out in the show as a big guy, he looks average because of jon voight(6'2.5), and other actors who are listed 6'2-3, great show though one of the best i've seen lately, great cast especially jon voight who's brilliant...

Schrieber is taller than Jackman and Reynolds...
Adam 1.88 m said on 14/Oct/15
Rob, with the X-Men cast he looks no taller than Reynolds or Jackman. I would say 187-188 max for Schreiber. Even a solid 6'2 is pushing it because he seems slightly shorter than Reynolds and Jackman even when he is standing up straighter. Definitely not 190 cm, maybe after a very long sleep or with shoes on would I buy anything around 190 cm. My guess would be somewhere between 187-188 cm, anything more seems very unlikely. He doesn't look taller than them in any of the photos, regardless of the camera angles. What do you make of it Rob?

[Editor Rob: Liev can look around 6ft 2 yeah, although he seems to think he was taller than jackman.]

On the 2015 Emmy's he seemed a maximum of an inch and a half taller than Maggie Gyllenhaal (obviously wearing significant heels), making her look as tall as legit six footers Jane Lynch and Allison Janney wearing their lesser heels. How did that happen? Okay, I've worked it out, Maggie's 5' 9.5" plus 3 inches of heel, Liev's 6' 2" in normal shoes.

it does not appear to look 6'2 mainly beside conan o'brien

Flashpoint, I saw him in person because I worked on the set of Ray Donovan. He is indeed 6'2.

This guy is a legit 6'3". At VERY least 190cm. People saying 6'2" and smaller are RIDICULOUS lmfao! This guy is huge! Look at him on the show! Insane the claims I see on this site hahahaha

you take this site too seriously. 1 inch is not that noticeable.
Sam said on 20/Aug/15
Yeah, I've thought so too Flashpoint. I've seen him on stage several times and I'm sure he's near that mark but it's difficult to argue a full 6'3" next to taller guys like Jeff Goldblum or his half-brother Pablo (who can look 1.5 and 2 inches taller respectively), looking only a smidge taller than weak 6'2"er Hugh Jackman and not looking much more than a couple inches taller next to under six feet guys like Daniel Craig and Seann William Scott, Liev's posture often doesn't help his case though.

With good posture, Schreiber's not less than 6'2.5"-6'2.75" IMO.
Sam said on 16/Jun/15
I know he's leaning and possible with step disadvantage but damn he looks like he took a lilliputian pill or something based on these photos near Chloe Moretz.

He is 6'3 1/4 (191)

i haven't seen any evidence that suggest he is over 6'2.
Judd said on 4/Apr/15
I wouldn't put him under 6'2.5" in any case...i think there's a fifty-fifty chance that he's 189 cms or 190 cms!
moe said on 29/Mar/15
Saw him filming at ucla on Friday. He's 6'2. He wore similar shoes as in the picture. Very intense guy.
LA Dude said on 22/Mar/15
Met him in person. 6'3" or bigger in shoes. Very big guy.
S.J.H said on 21/Mar/15
6'2.75 was so accurate even though 80% of 6'3 actor was just this height and round up 6'3 and remain 20% 6'3 just claim in shoe or at modesty 6'3
Bean said on 10/Mar/15
You people saying he's 6'1" are on absolute crack. He is a large man
Rey said on 6/Mar/15
6'1" 5/8- 6'2" 1/8 That's it.
Sam said on 23/Dec/14
Rob, can you add to his credits Ransom, A Walk on the Moon and Spring Forward to his credits and correct spelling on Machurian?
Mike said on 6/Dec/14
Nice update Rob! but photo is not showing up...
Xass said on 9/Nov/14
Rob, could liev be 6' 2.5 and hugh jackman 6' 1.75?
Jim said on 26/Oct/14
Rob I am about 6ft 2.5in and when I met this guy he wasan inch smaller than me.
6ft 1.5 for this guy.
BigZ said on 3/Oct/14
I give him 6'3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Oct/14
Jackman actually looks a strong 6ft2 in that pic...
Sam said on 23/Sep/14
Liev Schreiber recently with Jon Voight on Ray Donovan, Voight might be losing a little with age, sometimes Liev seems to be about an inch taller (as in this shot), around the time the show premiered the difference could look less than an inch.
Click Here
Also seen more shots of him w/ his half-brother Pablo and Liev is definitely at least 2 inches shorter, Pablo seems to be a weak 6'5".
Realist said on 8/Sep/14
Spot on.
Sam said on 3/Sep/14
Liev again with Hugh Jackman, looks about a half inch more I think.

TJE said on 21/Jul/14
I honestly thought this guy was no more than 187 on Ray Donovan. But I guess he can be 190.
Sam said on 30/Jun/14
Odd because he often looks close in height to Hugh Jackman but from that older movie Phantoms, Schreiber looks a little taller (maybe by a half inch) taller than Ben Affleck, and yet when Affleck met Jackman, Affleck was taller (maybe by half an inch again).
Reznik said on 22/Jun/14
He's no taller than Hugh Jackman or Ryan Reynolds. 6'1.75 for Liev
mike said on 20/Jun/14
at worst: 189
at highest: 191-192.
MarkyMark said on 21/May/14
I saw him at a movie Festival, he's tall at least 188 cm.
James B said on 15/Apr/14
Yeah does not much taller than 6'2.

barely looked 6'2 with 5'2.5 listed sarah michelle gellar ....and she was wearing flats

Im 184cm and 5'2 girls get dwarfed by me, even if they wear heels, so I dont really buy schreibers claim guys^^
Sam said on 9/Jan/14
Ray Donovan afforded some opportunities to compare Schreiber's height to other six foot plus guys.
Dash Mihok is listed on the net as 6'3", though I'm guessing that's not the case since Schreiber seems to edge him out slightly.
Click Here
6'2.5"-6'3" peak Jon Voight looked at least an inch shorter in The Manchurian Candidate but looks really close to Schreiber's height around Donovan, possibly around the same difference as w/ Mihok.
Click Here
Elliot Gould is the oldest and has lost some height from his 6'3" peak. He looks about a inch or a little more shorter than Schreiber.
Click Here
Conclusion: Schreiber's good at listed. I've seen him on stage several times and it reinforces my impression. I think he wakes up at 6'3" at can get around 6'2.5" at his night low. I think next to other 6'2" range guys (i.e. Jackman, Affleck), I've show Schreiber can edge them out also with good posture.
Dave618 said on 25/Dec/13
That's cool too, Jake. But again, even that could vary. On a lazy day with no work, I am still very very close to 6'2"--a tad over 6'1.75" after being awake for 2-3 hours. But on a physically demanding day, say I'm lifting furniture, I could already drop to 6'1.5" by midday.

And then I could regain some of that by taking a brief nap or even sitting down in a recliner.

See what I mean? There's no gaurantee that at every day by noon I'll be the same exact height--too many variables.

So I still think you can legitimately claim any height that you actually reach during a given day--from the highest to the lowest. As long as you reach it barefoot.
Dave618 said on 17/Dec/13
Right, Rampage. I think you can claim any height you want as long as you actually hit that height, barefoot, at least once every day. So I could claim 6'2" (my highest) or 6'1" and 1/2 (my lowest) or anywhere in between.

Someone once stated your morning height is your true height, because without gravity, you'd be that height all the time. That made sense to me, but really, most people only lose a half-inch or so a day, and they get it back the next morning, or even earlier if they take a decent nap. Heck, I can regain some of my height just by sitting in a comfortable chair for a while.

What I find questionable is people who give their heights in shoes, which I think many celebs, or their agents, do. Someone like like Sly Stallone who is only about 5'8" can wear two inch heels and claim 5'10", which I think he has.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/13
Yeah, I don't get how the tallest you can measure in the day doesn't qualify as being your real height. But, if those rules were to change, every single celeb here would need to be upgraded 0.5-1in, lol.
Dave618 said on 2/Nov/13
In Wolverine, you have Jackman, Reynolds, and Schrieber, three dudes who hover around the 6'2" mark. Now, I personally think Schrieber is a solid 6'3". Maybe, 6'3" in tha AM and a half-inch less in the eve, but still qualified to say he's 6'3", if he reaches that at some point in the day.

I would say the same for Reynolds and Jackman: I think at some point in the day they reach 6'2". So their claims are justified. If you reach a certain height every day, even if it's for an hour, you have the legitimate right to claim that height. After all, a race car is listed by how fast it can go at it's peak, not how fast it is "usually" going. Said car may only be able to race at it's peak speed for a few minutes before breaking down, but you still give it's peak speed when listing how fast it goes.

I se an inch or perhaps less seperating these three dudes.

As for Liev's comment; I took it as playful, humorous. I think Hugh and Liev are friends. And friends mess with each other like that.
61/2footer said on 24/Oct/13
He looked quite a bit taller than Denzel Washington in The Hurricane.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Sep/13
Lorne: Bigger around middle definitely. In earlier films he looks a lot slimmer, though. Maybe has 10-15lbs on Jackman. But like you said, a lot smoother. Higher BF%. Jackman's built like brick house. Easily under 10%...we should end it there.

He didn't look to have much on Denzel Washington in Manchurian Candidate. Maybe 1-1.5in taller. I think 189cm is a possibility. Quite similiar to John Voight, aswell.
Sam said on 19/Sep/13
Then, I am sorry for the misunderstanding, Rampage...I still don't quite the comment as juvenile per say, more off-handed, if he had said "I'm bigger, stronger and more manly than Hugh"...then maybe. Schreiber made a few amusing comments about physically struggling to keep up while training with Jackman and the others during film Wolverine. Anyway, even though not as fit and well-muscled as Jackman, Schreiber looks pretty damn fit for a man of 45 better shape than I am at more than a decade younger.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Sep/13
@6footer: that was exactly my point. I wouldn't go as far to say that hes a slob but he's it's obvious from looking at Wolverine Origins that his transformation was pretty half-assed compared to Jackman's

6ft3 is tall. Anything over 6ft is tall
Lorne said on 17/Sep/13
Lol Rampage. But I agree, to say he's "bigger", is, well, odd. He's maybe 2cm taller, a bit bigger naturally, softer...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Sep/13
Both you guys misinterpreted me.

@Sam: I was talking about Schrieber not you. You asked if his comment rubbed me the wrong way and I answered your question.

@Yaspaa: How am I juvenile? I just said Liev's comment was a bit immature but in a light-hearted way. If anything I find it amusing. And your right, Jackman did bulk up for Wolverine and Liev is probably bigger framed naturally. But height and weightwise they're not far off. That's the point I was trying to make.

I don't know the guy, I've never met him. I've seen a couple of his movies and he's pretty solid. His new show "Ray Donovan" looks like it has potential and I am yet to see it.

If you guys are fans of his and we're offended by my comment, I'm sorry.
caaq said on 7/Sep/13
I think he looks like a 6-2.75 inch guy wearing about an inch or 1.2 inch heeled shoes. He has negligible hair advantage. So calling him around 6-3 is quite fair. He does look very tall. Specially in the movie salt.
Yaspaa said on 28/Aug/13
The juvenilty I see is from you Rampage. Anyway, Jackman bulks up for Wolverine, he's nowhere near that size normally. He needs a top class movie trainer to get him in that shape. Liev is naturally a bigger guy.
Sam said on 28/Aug/13
Umm, ok, sensitive much?...don't see my comment as insulting but if you want me to be insulting, let me know, I'd gladly oblidge.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Aug/13
@Sam: The comment is just plain juvenile. Its something that an obnoxious ten year old playing little league would say. But other than that I've nothing against the guy. He's a decent actor.
Sam said on 13/Aug/13
This comment really rubs you wrong, doesn't it Rampage? Or do you hate Schreiber for another reason? There's really no question that Jackman is a more muscle-y guy and probably stronger but who cares? Anyway, Jackman and Schreiber are friends off-screen, so don't hold your breath for a clash of the titans, LOL.
cole said on 11/Aug/13
Personally I think he's 189 cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Aug/13
"I'm bigger than Hugh Jackman"

No, you're about a centimetre taller than Hugh Jackman. He benches more than you and has much less bodyfat. He'd destroy you in a fight and to top it all off he's better looking than you.
Dave619 said on 28/Jun/13
Saw Schrieber on "Ray Donovan" this evening. Had a legit 2 inches on Elliot Gould and about a half-inch to an inch on Jon Voight. Schrieber is AT LEAST 6'3".
Yaspaa said on 27/Apr/13
@Knight92 - look at the feet. Liev's farther away.
Lomax said on 25/Apr/13
Reynolds is not 6'2". And 6'2 3/4" is rounded to 6'3" for Schreiber.

There's something I just loathe about this guy, he seems pretty smug and obnoxious, like an American Russell Crowe. He does look near 6'3 though.

Gastontito, Jackman is not an inch and a half taller than Liev Schreiber. Schreiber may have a slight (less than an inch for sure) advantage actually:

Aragorn 5\'11 said on 23/Oct/12
Saw him at the X-Men Origins: Wolverine premiere in Los Angeles. He's definitely in the 6'2-6'3 range. I wasn't that far behind him and he was definitely a good 4-5 inches taller than me and I'm 5'10. I would say he's not less than 6'2 barefoot but in shoes he can look 6'3 or 6'4. He's probably 6'2.75 in the morning, 6'2.5 in the day, and 6'2.25 at night. I wouldn't give him a full 6'3 because he only looked that in shoes.
MmommyofYear said on 18/Aug/12
@ Tam... You are absolutely right! Great call on Liev Schrieber!
raynos said on 15/Jun/12
easily over 185cm, was clearly taller than Hugh Jackman in the Wolverine scenes where they were together. and if Hugh Jackman is listed as 6"2 on this site then Liev must be 190-191..he had at best about 2-3 cm over Hugh
ramiz said on 31/Jan/12
he dont look like 6'1-6'2 guy.strong 6'2.75 maybe 6'3.
Tam said on 24/Jan/12
Interesting finding this forum. Anyone a fan of Jack Reacher books? I recently found out that Tom Cruise is bringing the character to life in the film adaptation of One Shot. Anyone who has read any of the popular series by Lee Child will know that it is possibly the most ridiculous, no, scandalous piece of casting ever! One of the most important and distinctive facets of the character Jack Reacher is his size. He is a 250 Ib, 6'5" beast of a man. Rugged and brutal. A lot of fans saw Hugh Jackman in the role. I've always thought Liev Shreiber would be perfect. To be honest, I would have cast Macauley Culkin over Tom Cruise!

I saw Liev again in Talk Radio. He was seated for most of the time, but next to Peter Herrmann (6'5"), he surprisingly looked no more than 2 inches shorter, if that. It was a generally lanky cast, as Stephanie March, who seems to be maybe 5'10", is in it too.

Met him again tonight, but forgot my goddamn camera (didn't know I'd be meeting him). He's gotta be 6'3". Real nice guy. And incredibly dynamic on stage.
jay jay said on 31/Jan/07
his brother Pablo is about 6 foot 5. he does a lot of broadway stuff and is on the wire. great actor. I would say that Liev is about 6 foot 3.5 after seeing Manchurian Candidate.
Gonzalo said on 14/Dec/06
I saw him the other day next to Denzel Washingotn and Liev looked at least two inches taller, maybe three. If DEnzel is 1`83-84 Liev is very close to 1`90
D. Ray Morton said on 7/Nov/06
Could definitely be 191 cm.
dmeyer said on 6/Nov/06
could be 191 cm
bikagyura said on 27/Jul/06
Saw him in this new Omen-movie and tried to compare him with 6' 3 Thewlis... They looked the absolute exact same height.. or maybe Schreiber was just half a centimetre taller... I think he is truly 6' 3"

He looked to be almost the same size as Hugh Jackman in Kate & Leopold.

Just saw Manchurian Candidate, and Liev does look to be more than two inches taller than Denzel in this and in Hurricane. He is real close to 6-3.
J-Dog. said on 5/Feb/06
I'd say 6'2.75" is being far too subjectve, the guy looks a solid 6'3".
Anonymous said on 5/Feb/06
If you compare him to Hugh Jackman at the 2005 tony award you can see that he is 1 inch shorter. He might still be 190 cm but then Hugh is taller. Sorry for not presenting a picture but I will look around and get back.
Mark said on 7/Jun/05
I've seen Liev many times, most recently at Han's Deli at Bleecker/Broadway. He's tall. At least 6 ft 3. I guess the key question is - wy am I posting this. Who gives a crap how tall he is.
sam said on 5/May/05
This height sounds pretty accurate. My 6'3" brother claims he saw Liev on that street and said he was 6' feet even max., but I take that with a grain of salt. I saw Liev in a play where he was slightly taller than 6'2"ish actors like Alan Alda, Jeffrey Tambor, and Fred Weller. 6'2 1/2"-6'3" I would say.
