Mark Wahlberg height: 5ft 8in (173 cm)

American Actor, Singer best known for roles in films such as Ted, The Italian Job, Boogie Nights and Three Kings. He stated his height in Newsweek, Mar 1995: "But I had to face reality: I'm only 5 feet 10", although this is funny because his brother Donnie also claims "5ft 10", and who is taller than Marky by a few inches."I'm told that I look taller on screen. One girlfriend said: "You look about 6ft 2in on screen." People look at me and say: "My God, what happened?" I can look pretty ordinary away from films. The camera does things to all of us"

He - man Bran says on 26/Oct/14
I notice his height next to others in pics and find him 5'8" or under. My buddy ran into him and met him a couple years ago and he claimed 5'7" 5'8" tops. Just my two cents.
Sam says on 15/Oct/14
I noticed compared to his many tough guy roles and past as a bit of bruiser off-screen, how Wahlberg quickly seems non-threatening, even a bit in touch with his effeminate side, in movies like Ted, The Other Guys and Rock Star.

I don't think Wahlberg shies away from generous boots, in a lot of shots with his and Christian Bale, Bale's standing looser, with less heeled shoes and their height looks more similar than you'd think.
Len says on 4/Oct/14
5'8" seems spot on.

This was interesting to me. Mark and hockey tough guy Tie Domi (who was listed at 5'10 throughout his career but many speculated was really 5'8-5'9. They look the same size, I don't think under 5'8'' for Marky Mark is possible.

i must be watching the wrong video because he looks clearly shorter than domi to me.
Marty says on 28/Sep/14
Wahlberg is 2 inches shorter then his 5-9 wife Rhea Durham in this pic despite him still wearing a 1 inch thick sole sandal compared to her wearing a very thin 1/4th inch flip flop. Flat footed he would be 2 3/4th inches shorter then her which puts him in the weak 5-6 range. The snug hat he wears helps me determine this because it's like putting a ruler on top of his head as it levels out his head because high hair styles can create deceptive heights.

I don't understand his recent pick with Ronda Rousey who claims to 5'6-5'7 and Mark looks a good 4-5 inches on her. I know she is barefoot but such a huge difference does not make sense. I think she is about 5'4 and Wahlberg has 2.5 inch footwear with him atleast.
TJE says on 20/Sep/14
Think everybody's forgetting that 5'8 is 172.7 cm. I think it's possible for Mark to be 172.7.
Dmeyer says on 16/Sep/14
Rob he is too stocky and can look very often 5'7-7.5in can also look 5'9 so 5'7.5-7.75 us possible
Mr. R says on 16/Sep/14
Mark is a pretty strong 5-7.
Six says on 13/Sep/14
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IwAnuwCJAw skip to 0:08 he's barely 5'6 and he's most likely wearing dress shoes. Unless he grew... But I don't think adults can grow anymore, right?
Raddish Dik says on 12/Sep/14
I would bet anything he is 5'7.5" barefoot at the doctors office.
So 5'8" isnt crazy when he is walking around in shoes

colt pls upload the picture
colt says on 25/Aug/14
Im five eleven and I tower over mark. I have a picture of us together and it was around 2003. I doubt he's grown much height wise. I would give him five eight with the right shoes.
Word1234 says on 23/Aug/14
Here's mark with his wife, looking an inch shorter and he's got an added inch wearing sandals while she is bare feet.
Click Here
Word1234 says on 22/Aug/14
I'm gonna suggest the listing is correct, I believe mark wakes up at about 5'8 and maybe drops a tad below throughout the day. Does look an inch or so shorter than his wife who's listed on google as 5'9 but could be shorter.
Mexicaneca says on 22/Aug/14
Yeep... I think Marky Mark is strong 5'8...
lelman says on 21/Aug/14
Yeah just saw that video, he lost a good 2-3 inches when he took his shoes off and looked about the same height as his wife.
Mexicaneca says on 21/Aug/14
Rob I think he is 173 for sure... you see the video with his famaly.. little bit shorter than his wife..
jimbo says on 21/Aug/14
check out his ice challenge he takes of his jordans's See what u guys think
Bishop says on 11/Aug/14
172 cm.
Realist says on 11/Aug/14
Tucci was made to look shorter than Wahlberg. Stucci is about 3/4 inch taller. So Stucci is strong 173, thus 5'8.25. This guy is about 5'7.5. Stucci looks an inch less than Kenneth Branaugh at most.
Mike T says on 9/Aug/14
He's gotta be 5'8". He's taller than Stanley Tucci and he's 172cm
Costrx says on 8/Aug/14
I'm 5.7 and he walked under my nose... Just sayin.
the shredder says on 31/Jul/14
he is not 5'7 flat or 5'10. 5'7.75 is fair for him
Clay says on 31/Jul/14
The Rock is no 6'5...
Peyman says on 29/Jul/14
5'6" is a joke for him
he could be a solid 172 guy
but obviously no more than that
John says on 28/Jul/14
He's described as 5ft 7in in the Daily mail when making 'Pain or Gain' with the Rock - 6ft 5in.
The Rock towers over Wahlberg.
1.70-1.71m for Wahlberg.
He's Swedish American and the average in Sweden is 5ft 10in.
He's 5ft 7in to 5ft 7.5in tall.
spiky says on 23/Jul/14
no way he is 5'8". 5'7" perhaps
Adamz says on 17/Jul/14
Clooney around 99? Rob what do u mean?
[Editor Rob: I mean around the time of Three Kings, you can see him and Clooney together a fair bit.]
mackie_xv says on 17/Jul/14
Same height as martin sheen and almost a whole head shorter than 6' Alec Baldwin The Departed .
Hipbull says on 11/Jul/14
In the movie Transformers 4 he only looked a bit taller than Nicolas Peltz so 5'8 is spot on
jamieorr4 says on 9/Jul/14
i know someone who is 57.5 and i think mark has the same built
RisingForce says on 2/Jul/14
Agreed, Rob, a good example is what you note above that Mark and his brother Donnie both claim 5'10". It's funny keeping that in mind then seeing them together.
[Editor Rob: yeah Donnie is at least near enough his claim, but look at Mark...even with someone like Clooney around 99 no way can he get away with 5ft 10!]
Alex 6'0 says on 1/Jul/14
I think he falls 5'7.5-5'8 range
RisingForce says on 1/Jul/14
Good find, Rob. Can't believe he's still claiming 5'10", he can't pass for it at all and I had thought he'd become more humble and would claim 5'9" these days, then again, I became suspicious when I saw him listed at 5'10" in an article for Pain and Gain. By the way, I definitely don't buy Wahlberg's claim that he was 212 in that movie either. As for height, I think he's right about 5'8", and it's unlikely he's above that. Could be more 5'7.5"-5'7.75" as well, but I can't buy anything below 5'7.5". It's surprising to me that Mark inflates his height so much yet seems to make no effort to look taller with lifts or forced posture. I see a lot of people around my height in the 5'8" to 5'9" range who will claim to be 5'10" or 5'11" and imo, if you're going to inflate your height that much, you should at least try to look the part. Otherwise, what's the point?
[Editor Rob: 5ft 9 would be a lot more believable for your average joe than the 5ft 10 claim, 2 inches can just be too much to try claiming. You meet another legit 5ft 10 man who says his height you are going to be rumbled.]
Realist says on 27/Jun/14
I am spot on 5'7.5 looks ideal he is one guy who looks in the same range as me 171-172. No arguments here. But i am in complete agreement with Shredder though i think he just about scrapes 5'8 around 11-12 pm.
the shredder says on 25/Jun/14
5'7 max is crap , but 5'10 is just bad, 5'8 is okay.
fsd says on 24/Jun/14
5'7 ft max 5'6 ft min
Brad says on 24/Jun/14
5-10 is comical....when he hits 5' 8" Reagan will be president again. A killing joke.
the shredder says on 23/Jun/14
5'10 is really bad , almost as bad as under 5'7.
Editor Rob says on 22/Jun/14
he's still throwing around that 5-10: "Hard work pays off. I am not saying that if you are 5ft 10 you are going to be a basketball player in the NBA, but if you set realistic goals for yourself they are attainable"
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 20/Jun/14
He was with Will Ferrell by a ruler and came up to the 5'11" mark (it's on the Will Ferrell height page). I don't think that he's 8 inches shorter. Now after noticing it:

Will Ferrell: 6'2.75"/190 CM (not 6'3" as the ruler easily adds height for him with how rigged it is).
Mark Wahlberg: 5'8.5"-5'9"
thekillingjoke says on 20/Jun/14
5'8 my foot. He's 5'7.5 at the most.
mande2013 says on 10/Jun/14
He's a tad shorter than 5'8 Joaquin Phoenix in We Own the Night.
testimony says on 27/May/14
he's 5'6 at the most. two of my buddies met him and I have a neighbor with a well-boxing reputation who stated 5'5." serious truth.
Arch Stanton says on 24/May/14
Will Farrell looks about 7 inches taller. 5 ft 8.
Realist says on 22/May/14
Rob, i think strong 171 is correct 5'7.5. He looks like a very weak 5'8.
75% comments claim less than 5'8.Same range as Mark Ruffalo. You should have a look on this guy.
Realist says on 19/May/14
@EVERYONE Most of the 5'8 actors are actually about 171-172. Efron, Wahlberg, Sean Penn, Jeremy Renner, Ruffalo, Downey, Salman Khan . The only true 5'8 guys are Joaquin Phoenix, Anthony Hopkins, Steve Buscemi,Andy Serkis.
Tony says on 13/May/14
Click Here Mark Wahlberg with Ellen Degeneres, they look near the same height.
Realist says on 11/May/14
I know his proportions make him look smaller but this guys footwear is tricky. We dont know whats inside their shoes. I think 171 cm is fair. He is less than Joaquin Phoenix for sure who looks more 5'8.25. Again not short but low average guy with proportions of a smaller guy.
FUTCHER says on 10/May/14
Click Here Look at this, Rob. I think 5 10 is true for Mark
Clay says on 9/May/14
He's 5'8 no more no less.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 7/May/14
He wasn't too much shorter than John C. Reilly whose a legit 6'1"+ guy (he had at least two inches on 5'11" Seann William Scott in the Promotion, possibly three). However, I'd still give him 5'7.5"-5'8".
He rarely ever looks above 5'8",
RisingForce says on 5/May/14
I agree Arch, he can easily look 5'8" there, with Ludacris, in socks with Will Ferrell and in general, seems a bit taller than Jeremy Piven whatever height he is. I don't think he wears lifts outside of some movies when he might be told to by some directors. Mark's stocky build and short legs probably give him a shorter impression.
James B says on 5/May/14
He looks more 5'7 in my opinion.

Rob do you think his brother Donnie could be more 5'9.5 than a full 5'10?
the shredder says on 5/May/14
5 '8 is not crazy
LES says on 4/May/14
I've been looking at this site for a couple years and wasn't aware I could openly comment...this is my first comment (without any flaw I will comment like a regular)...I am a solid 5'9"at 176cm flat footed in the morning...I met Mark at his current age at a pool party flat footed where he is a solid inch below me at 173 cm 5' 8" max, my posture was about a quarter an inch lower in conversation...with his built and maximizing lifts in his ever changing boots he is a broad 173 guy passing as 178...
Arch Stanton says on 30/Apr/14
Rob what height difference do you see in that photo? They have completely different builds and head types which always makes Mark look shorter than he really is, but for me it's difficult to see 6 inches in that photo anyway! And people are still claiming he's under 5'8!
[Editor Rob: Voight looks more of a 6ft guy in that photo, but with his age he might have a bit looser posture.]
Arch Stanton says on 30/Apr/14
Click Here

Here's the photo. I'd say Voight has above average forehead height but it's difficult to believe 6 inches between them. Either way you can see Mark CLEARLY is in normal sneakers and not lifts and he looks easily this next to Voight who often still pulls off looking 6'2.
Arch Stanton says on 30/Apr/14
I saw a photo of him the other day in sneakers and Jon Voight in dress shoes and it was really difficult to see 6 inches between them. Voight looked max 6'1 in comparison. The thing with Mark is that he's stocky which gives a shorter impression, same with Matt Damon.
Lorne says on 29/Apr/14
Photos are deceptive. Marky Mark is exactly what he says he is, 5ft10!!! Nah, he is legit 5ft8 though. I've seen enough to convince me. Not a strong 5'8 like Rob, but probably like me or Jenny, a few mm under at worst...
Robert says on 29/Apr/14
No way in hell is this guy 5'8, he absolutely looks less, I wouldn't be surprised if he was 169cm. Why do you keep him at this height Rob?
the shredder says on 28/Apr/14
Rob , He can't be a full 5 '8 , Khalid looks a hair taller next to Seth green with him.
[Editor Rob: he could be a weak 5ft 8, although there's not many posed together side by side photos when I looked.]
RisingForce says on 22/Apr/14
Arch, I sort of enjoyed Rock Star for the same reasons as a huge 80's metal fan, and yeah, Aniston was hot with that 80's look! I'm also a big fan of a lot of the musicians involved such as Jeff Scott Soto, Jeff Pilson and Zakk Wylde. One thing, though, the "Halford character" was kind of in poor taste since the real Halford is not only a legend, but seems like a cool guy and definitely wouldn't be doing broadway musicals or whatever!

As for Mark, here's an example of how they make him taller in movies. He's standing on a box while wearing boots for "Broken City" Click Here I still think he's about 5'8", or at worst minimum 5'7.5" evening height, but considering his roles, it's not surprising directors use those tricks to make him look taller. I've heard he wore lifts in "The Italian Job" as well and looking at his shoes, it definitely looks like they could be elevators.
Arch Stanton says on 18/Apr/14
I actually enjoyed Rock Star though Sam and have it on DVD. But that's because I'm into 80s metal and like that sort of rock star goes off the tracks sort of thing. I rather liked Spall as the seedy manager and Jennifer Aniston looked gorgeous in it too. I actually have the Steelheart album, the first song of which is Wahlberg's audition track in the film, We all Die Young.
Arch Stanton says on 18/Apr/14
Glad to be the source of amusement LOL. Wahlberg looks like he could be vicious and a nasty piece of work, but given his height I think he has a strong screen presence and I personally also like him, but I wouldn't want to get into an argument or fight with him, put it that way.
the shredder says on 18/Apr/14
Rob , he looks the same as Kahlid with seth green
Sam says on 17/Apr/14
His wife is taller than him I think at around 5'9" and she's gorgeous. I like Wahlberg, good on him for coming from unlikely circumstances to a successful movie career. His best are Boogie Nights, The Departed and The Fighter. He actually was the best thing in I Heart Huckabees. However, his acting gets pretty dull when he comes across a weaker script or tries to stretch his range too much (i.e. Shooter, Rock Star, The Truth about Charlie) and at times he doesn't seem like the brightest bulb in the shed IMO.
RisingForce says on 14/Apr/14
He does look around 5'8", but I think he might be slightly under it, like 171-172 cm. Doesn't seem too bothered about his height these days and doesn't look like he wears lifts at events. I'd be surprised if he still claimed 5'10", though I did recently see him listed at 5'10" in an article talking about his weight gain for "Pain and Gain".
the shredder says on 7/Apr/14
No taller than Kalid with Green , Mark is a 5'7.5 lift wearer. In the film he looks 6 inches on Seth , off set under 5.
Brad A. says on 31/Mar/14
I'm 5'7 and 1/2 to be exact, normally I round up to 5'8, and Mark seems like my exact height. Tom cruise is probably the exact same or very close. Given that Nicola is listed at 5'5.5 with what looks like 4 inch heels, Mark is probably getting 2 inches from his shoes, and they're the same height in the picture, Mark is 5'7.5
MA says on 26/Mar/14
I believe wahlberg is 5'7 and 5'8 to 5'9 in lifts.
James Crowley Maximus Meridius says on 23/Mar/14
Rob he claimed 5ft 10in is he a lift wearer.
Sam says on 21/Mar/14
As a movie star, Wahlberg seems to get shot in his movies in such a way which makes him seem taller than he is. I've noticed this in a bunch of his movies...with the exception of The Departed where he truly looked like a shortish guy (Scorsese was bound not to be sympathetic to Wahlberg's lack of height). When standing on even ground with Denzel, he still looks about 3 inches shorter than Washington.
Click Here
As to Boogie Nights, at least Wahlberg's always been honest that it wasn't all him!
Jd says on 20/Mar/14
I think fsd is pretty accurate. I'm exactly 5'6.25" and based on the length of his legs and arms from pictures, he looks like he would be slightly taller than me. Of course this is just conjecture...
SaveUsY2J says on 20/Mar/14
@Seahawksfan- He's noticeably closer to the camera and has about an inch of extra hair (you can see from Washington's eye levels that he's still the taller of the two)

Jack says on 20/Feb/14
I just watched the Departed movie and he looked really short there like 5'7" no more.
Sean says on 16/Feb/14
To go with Arch's comment about Boogie Nights, one of the people working on the film (I think it was the director) said: "...but Mark's really short, it looked ridiculous." When talking about his...uh...prosthetic, haha. He looks a definite 5'8".
Mr. R says on 15/Feb/14
Mark is 5-7.
Mr. R says on 15/Feb/14
Arch, you are killing me! LOL
Lorne says on 15/Feb/14
Yeah, as usual Rob has a good listing. This guy's gotta be close to 5'8...
Shawn says on 14/Feb/14
Wahlberg with Stallone and James Caan. Can't see footwear though:

Arch Stanton says on 14/Feb/14
I suppose his role in Boogie Nights was both a blessing and a curse. I mean wherever he goes the ladies are going to assume he really is very well-endowed. But you can imagine the disappointment on the faces of the women who do get to find out what he's packing!!
Arch Stanton says on 12/Feb/14
Some observances in Boogie Nights. He looked about 3 inches shorter than Burt Reynolds, although Reynolds had suspiciously clumpy shoes. He looked about 1.5 inches taller than Cheadle, 5-6 inches shorter than John C. Reilly, almost even with Heather Graham (in roller skates) and actually looked an easy inch taller than Philip Seymour Hoffman in the film although did you see the "Italian designer" heels he was wearing which they showed in the shop. Barefoot in it though with John C. Reilly and next to Reynolds in footwear I don't think he looked under 5 ft 8. He's without the shadow of a doubt not 5'10, although technically if they cut off the erect Dirk Diggler manhood and imposed it on his head he'd be what 6 ft 9 right? The man deserves respect :-]
Arch Stanton says on 11/Feb/14
I thought he looked 1.5- 2 inches taller than Cheadle in Boogie Nights???
Arch Stanton says on 11/Feb/14
Rob can you add Boogie Nights, one of his best known roles!
Cnut the great says on 7/Feb/14
Look at him in the pic above, does he really look taller than 5'7"
Lorne says on 30/Jan/14
In the "other guys" they're is a portion of the film with him and Will Ferrel barefoot, and Wahlberg looks no more than 7 inches shorter. This guy honestly looks 5ft8 the majority of the time, he's gotta be close to the mark. 5ft7.5 is absolute minimum, but honestly, I'm starting to have trouble seeing him less than 172cm...
Rhome says on 27/Jan/14
I want to be like a height of 5feet and 8inches like mark.

Mark Wahlberg is 5'7". He's a Wrestling fan and I'm a Wrestler. I met him at a show once, cool dude, by the way. I'm 5'9" in my Wrestling boots and he was probably wearing inch heels and he was around an inch shorter than me. 5'7" flat.
Lorne says on 20/Jan/14
170cm is too low, but 171-172 is quite possible. I think his proportions make him look shorter, but he would measure CLOSE to 5ft8...(btw, I'm 5ft8 and he looks the same with Mila Kunis as I do with 5ft4 woman, but then she might be a little shy of that mark...)
Sam says on 18/Jan/14
173 is fair.
tony says on 15/Jan/14
171-172.
Bosnia says on 7/Jan/14
Nate Robinson posted photo with Mark on facebook from Staples center. Mark is wearing high top Jordan basketball shoes and probabbly has lifts in them because he is clearley taller than 173 cm (without shoes) measured Robinson.
Edlt2882 says on 6/Jan/14
Based on the pictures and my post in Jeremy Piven's page, I think Wahlberg is 172cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Jan/14
@johnmcc: I'd say they'd very close
johnny says on 6/Jan/14
Click Here Look at his body stature, legs, torso, how the pants look on him etc. i doubt he's over 5'7''
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 5/Jan/14
Wahlberg is probably a weak 5ft8. I saw more than 2in below Seth MacFarlene. Gotta throw 5ft9 in the dumpster, coz he just ain't that big.

But, I have nothing against the guy. He's probably the most tenacious person in Hollywood, today. Give it 10, 20 years and they'll probably make a movie about his life. He's done it all.
TripMcneal says on 2/Jan/14
Based on the barefoot pictures with Will Ferrell I say a 5'8 1/2 - 5'9 Wahlberg is possible. I've seen Will in person and he looks around 6'3
johnmcc says on 26/Dec/13
Yeah i dont think hes 5'8 even never mind 5'10. He Always looks short in movies and i pegged him at 5'7 ish. Would be interesting to see him together with Tom Cruise for a comparison.
Ed Kline says on 22/Dec/13
Consistently looked shorter than 5'8 next to 5'4 Mila Kunis in Ted, though I couldn't get a good bead on footwear. Really looks 5'7-5'7.5 to me. I know that's quibbling, but that's what we do here.
z says on 18/Dec/13
classic 170 guy
Realist says on 18/Dec/13
Joaquin Phoenix has atleast 1 inch on him. This guy is at most 171.169-171 more probable. Joaquin Phoenix's height is downgraded and also his acting is underrated. He's a definite 174.
Kalmore says on 7/Dec/13
He's definitely not below 5'7 that's ridiculous saying that. I think he is between 5'7 1/2 to 5'8 throughout the day. I'm the same height and proportionatly he looks the same as I do. He probably wears lifts 90% of the time, giving the illusion he's around 5'9 1/2ish.
the shredder says on 6/Dec/13
Mr.R is right , he might be just under 5'8 , these 5'7 and comments are funny.
darren says on 5/Dec/13
for sure around the 170 - 172 range depending on age + time of day

no more or less
divincodino92 says on 28/Nov/13
166-168 (out of bed 5 feet 6)! 173 is crazy for him!
Mr. R says on 28/Nov/13
Guys, I saw Marky Mark last night at a screening of his latest film Lone Survivor. Emile Hirsch and Taylor Kitsch were there too. The security wouldn't let me get too close to them, but I can tell you that Mark is a little below 5-8. Really built though.
the shredder says on 24/Nov/13
Come on guys , 5'7 easily and 5'8 is not crazy.
johnny says on 19/Nov/13
Just look at him in The Departed. He's like 5-6. Played a young teenage boy in Basketball diaries at age 23/24.
Shawn says on 17/Nov/13
It's so odd how you rarely, if ever, hear the press take digs at Wahlberg for being "short", and yet Cruise gets terrible flack for it. I guarantee if Cruise and Wahlberg ever had a pic taken together they would be damn near identical in height.
Brad says on 14/Nov/13
He cast Emile Hirsch in his latest film coming out....he looks tall with built up military boots with a shrimp like Emile, however; he's not even 5' 8".
Peyman says on 8/Nov/13
I'd go with 171cm
his perfect body shape makes him look at least 5ft 8in IMO
Jack says on 28/Oct/13
Mark looked the same height as Mila Kunis at the 2012 MTV choice awards. Mila is 5'4 maybe even a bit less but was in pretty big heels. So she was up to probably 5'7 1/4ish and Mark maybe had a half an inch on her. The guy cannot be anymore then 5'7 1/2 barefoot.

When he was drunk on the Graham Norton show I was sorta shocked to hear him say that he was on the shorter side when he was rambling about why people would root for him over Fassbender. I'd love to hear an interview where someone asked him today, he's more humble now I bet he'd say 5'9 not 5'10.
lelman says on 24/Oct/13
Would you say she's wearing 3-4 inch heels? So that would make her about 5'9" in this photo. Dress shoes normally give an inch or so, so if we are to assume Mark isn't wearing lifts, he looks like he could be 5'8" barefoot here. Maybe just under.
[Editor Rob: I think they are near 4 inche styles]
otep90 says on 17/Oct/13
Bearfoot 5'5" to 5'6"


Lift shoes 5'8" (1.73m)
Seth says on 16/Oct/13
Its movies like the basketball diaries where I see Wahlberg not much shorter then dicaprio and say man Mark could be like 5'9 actually. Then I see movies like the departed where Mark is several inches shorter then Damon and say man Mark can't be more then 5'7. It's all over the place the problem is that he is muscular and in such great shape it makes him look taller, plus he must wear lifts most of the time. That combo always gives him a taller appearance, plus he has good posture which always helps.
the shredder says on 13/Oct/13
Strong 5'7 minimum.
Fouad says on 11/Oct/13
Can't say he is 5'8 he looks really short in this picture i'd say 5'6 1/2
Jackstorm73 says on 8/Oct/13
It doesn't matter he is the Steve McQueen of this generation. That's coming from a guy who grew up when McQueen hit it big.
Ryan says on 7/Oct/13
I'm surprised no one has mentioned this but in Fear for like 4 seconds you can see this picture of Wahlberg on a lineup, now theres no knowing for sure whether or not they took his picture in front of an accurate and actual height chart or if they just took his picture and plopped it on a backround of a height chart. On the chart he is with his hair slightly over 67 inches, which makes me believe it is real cause many claim he is 5'7. Unless he has grown somehow since '96, mark is most likely 5'7.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 7/Oct/13
5'8 at the most but likely closer to 5'7
Jane says on 27/Sep/13
I've met Mark Wahlberg. He is 5'7"
coolbro says on 23/Sep/13
He looks taller on cam cause he has a big head
leonari says on 23/Sep/13
Lol93: Are you joking? Especially in pain and gain full body shots you can see that he is indeed in 5'7" range. Don't get fooled by his muscles. Mark is short but he owns his height.
heightist says on 23/Sep/13
I think he's 5-7 or 5-8 at the most....he's shorter than matt damon who's 5-9 at the most...he was taller than 5-5 pacquaio by 2.5 to 3 inches
Dirk says on 20/Sep/13
He's a hard guy to determine height because of how much he works out, so telling his height by arm proportion is difficult. I think hes about 5'7 1/2, he probably does wear like 1 to 2 inch lifts a lot giving the impression that he's 5'9.
Keltoi says on 19/Sep/13
Rob, why is it that most 5'8" listings on here are consistently guessed shorter by people?

I know it happens on this site in general, but like 80/90% of the 5'8" listings on here have people asking for downgrades. Is it something about that range in particular which throws people off or what? You've got Cruise, Efron, Wahlberg, Downey Jnr, Eminem, Mark Ruffalo, Cillian Murphy, Joe Jonas and quite a few others listed around that range and without fail, there's a ****load of comments saying they're shorter.

By the way Wahlberg does look a little under 5'8" in some photos, I'll admit, but I suspect that's due to his bulky physique.
[Editor Rob: you could probably say it with a lot of different heights. A one inch difference isn't much and some of those names you can see that they could look anywhere in 5ft 7-8 range at times...maybe efron I'd discount as he is a guy with good posture and I don't think can look 5ft 7.]
Cnut the Great says on 17/Sep/13
He looks 5'7" .. ive never met him so im not saying i know for sure but look at the pic, and watch his movies. he doesnt look like a 5'8" - 5'9" guy. he is in great shape and muscular so it gives the illusion that he is taller
Viper says on 16/Sep/13
He isnt taller than 5'7. And yeah, his acting has improved a lot over the years.
billyb says on 4/Sep/13
This guy had some serious issues way back and he absolutely did a 180 turnaround. What an awesome talent.
Eddie says on 2/Sep/13
@jtm: In this pic, him and Will are both in sneakers and no lifts are being worn cause you cant run in them: gty.im/80561375 Mark is 5'7 but has muscles and good posture
jtm says on 31/Aug/13
look at him next to will smith and tell me again if 5'7 is not possible.
lol93 says on 30/Aug/13
Watch pain and gain and tell me again if this guy is 5'7
Silent d says on 29/Aug/13
On jackie chan's fb page, he posted a photo up of him and mark. Mark looks a few cms taller than jackie who is 174cm. That proves that mark is a constant lift wearer. 5 foot 8. Mark posted a photo of him with gwen stefani and he was taller than her in heels. She is 5 foot 6 so there is something fishy there. 173cm.
Jimbo says on 28/Aug/13
He looks like a 172 Think he just has short length spam, and seems shorter then he is.
Adam says on 26/Aug/13
5'7 max, his proportions look way off for him to be any taller. Also he is definitely a lift wearer.
lol93 says on 26/Aug/13
In pain and gain he looked like 5'9
Balrog says on 24/Aug/13
I posted a pic in Dwayne Johnson's page and he really doesn't look the full 5'8". 5'7.5" would be my guess for Wahlberg.
DaveC says on 20/Aug/13
Alec Baldwin and Leonardo TOWER over him in The Departed. He's probably 5'6" like Tom Cruise.
Viper says on 17/Aug/13
He does look under 5'7 sometimes in movies. He sure isnt 5'8 though.
Arch Stanton says on 9/Aug/13
Looks exactly the same height proportionally as Tom Cruise in recent pictures, 172cm. He said himself that his dad is very short.
jordydecke says on 5/Aug/13
Wahlberg on the one show earlier, had skate shoes with what looked liked lifts on he was pretty much level with the presenter who's a strong 5'11. Sometimes lifts can be due to injuries though. A while ago I had a bad ankle break and was given something to wear to help posture, had a pair of these lift-like things so that one leg wasn't suddenly higher than the other - confusion ensued. People who had seen me only days before were suddenly noticing that I was about 6'2 all of a sudden. Very funny for a while.
Ben says on 5/Aug/13
He has short limbs (torso and legs) which make him look 5'7 over a mere inch of 5'8. But he's probably in between the two.
johnny says on 3/Aug/13
the more i see of him the more i think he's 5-6 max
Balrog says on 3/Aug/13
Rob, could he be a lift wearer? I swear he can look as short as 5'7'' in some pics and in others up to 5'9''.
[Editor Rob: he can be a thick boot wearer at times]
Brad says on 31/Jul/13
The new film with Denzel has a poster with them literally the same height...he really musta worn those boots he wore with Theron. He's 5 feet 7 and a half.
cole says on 31/Jul/13
I would say fractions over 5'7 min, and 5'8 max, from seeing him in his films and in premiere-pics (172-173 cm range). Is that the range you see him in Rob? Or do you think 173-174 cm is more likely?
[Editor Rob: I think right on 5ft 8 is ok for him, at times he can look shorter, other times a little taller, but his 5ft 10 claim is still funny, I wonder what he'd say nowadays]
Sam says on 29/Jul/13
@ Zeke -- At the most he is 5'7.5 which is not close to 5'7 nor 5'8. He does look really small standing with other (average height) guys and his legs look pretty short as well as his upper body. A 5'8 guy could have short legs, but he's probably not quite at that mark.
Zeke says on 22/Jul/13
I've seen all this guys movies and I can honestly say he is not as low as 5'7 but isn't a full 5'8. He's closer to 5'8 then 5'7 but were talking like barely anything noticeable. I think no one bothers him about his height because of his physique, according to him he was 212 pounds in pain and gain which sounds impossible considering his height but its believable if you look at him. Great actor by the way.
Rey says on 21/Jul/13
Why do you think Seth Green was cast in the Italian Job? To make Mark look like a bigger guy and most scenes with Ms.Theron she is sitting or not in the same shot. Tom Cruise claimed 5'10 in All The Right Moves. Stallone has claimed 5'10",Chuck Norris, etc. At best, 5'7 for Mark.
Short but not marky mark says on 13/Jul/13
I stood next to marky mark at a Hollywood party. I was wearing normal shoes and he had on lifts. I'm 5'7" and I was still taller than him. If he's 5'10" then I'm 7'2". Marky mark is probably 5'5" at best.

Sam says on 9/Jul/13
I don't mean to sound rude, but how can you guys really tell between 5'7.5 and 5'8, especially when he's on screen? I mean it's half an inch. Off screen the difference between 5'7 and 5'8 can be hard because of shoes. Mark has short legs, so I would say that he's either 5'7 or 5'8. Who cares if he's short?
Makavel says on 2/Jul/13
yeah 5'8 witch shoes, barefoot no more than 5'7 ;) But this dude is huge in the movie pain and gain !!!
a.j. says on 29/Jun/13
5'8 for sure
cole says on 25/Jun/13
I could see him at just below 5'8, 5'7.75, 172 cm.
cole says on 25/Jun/13
Commentor: He looks a good 5'8 with P. Diddy.
Lorne says on 23/Jun/13
I used to think 5'7.5, but after watching several of his movies, he actually could be 5'8. However it is kind of hard for me to believe he is taller than Cruise. In any case, you could argue 5'7.5 or 5'8, so I'll go with 172cm. So M wahlberf height: 5ft7.75/172cm, you could go a quarter inch either way. It really depends if, or more accurately, how often he wears lifts, since he really can look 5'8, but also comes off as a "weak" 5'8, like 171-172cm
Commenter says on 22/Jun/13
Next to P. Diddy, listed as 178 cm. [Click Here]

I'd say solid 5'7".
superman says on 20/Jun/13
he is listed on 2 or 3 other sites as 5'7 so im wondering what made 5'8 stand out to you rob? thanks he is the man though!
[Editor Rob: you could argue anywhere in the 5ft 7-8 range, he can look a weak 5ft 8 at times]
WAT says on 19/Jun/13
Weak 5'8...probably 5'7.5 actually. 5'8 is short
lol says on 10/Jun/13
Mark Walhberg is a strong 5ft7 ...
No more than that ... 5ft7.3/4 at the very most ...
Sean says on 19/May/13
5'7 - 5'8 at best
Logan Hedlund says on 13/May/13
Rob: could you please check the link for the photograph of mr Wahlberg with mis Pelz. I can only see hers :P
[Editor Rob: hit refresh and it should show up]
Len says on 5/May/13
5' 7.5" or 5'8". He's looked that in everything he's been in, pretty much.

It's hilarious that he tried to claim 5'10", but that seems like what a lot of famous actors and even actresses do, claim 2 inches more than they really are.
MaskDeMasque says on 3/May/13
On second watching of Ted, i think he has "cruise" proportions. 5'7.5, maybe 5'7.75.
John says on 2/May/13
Average height of an American man is 5'9". Approximately 15% of American men are 6'0" and over. 5'7" or 5'8" isn't short when you have these statistics.
John says on 2/May/13
Irish curse? JFK 6'0", Liam Neeson 6'4", Pierce Brosnan 6'2". Average height in Ireland 5'9".
leonari says on 1/May/13
A least 171 but not much taller in my opinion.. 172 big max!
Trip Menzell says on 29/Apr/13
Saw "Pain and Gain" today. I can go with 170-171 cm for Mark. I think Anthony Mackie needs a downgrade, but lets save that for another page.
Track says on 28/Apr/13
How looks 1-2" shorter thatn 6'4" Dwayne Johnson in Pain & Gain..
Mooplefoo says on 28/Apr/13
I've seen nearly all his movies i'd say he's a strong 5'7 1/2, but no more. He definitly wears lifts but he comes across as a guy who doesn't mind his height. If you watch his movies he's always the shortest guy in it except for that one movie with seth green lol, they don't film his movies like he's tom cruise. He's a perfect example of someone who makes up for his height by serious working out, i don't care how tall you are but i don't think anyone would mess with him when he had his pain and gain body.
Anonym_1 says on 27/Apr/13
Looks taller than 5'8" in pain and gain next to 5'10.5" anthony mackie!
Mr.realityortruth says on 26/Apr/13
i saw on the howard stern show and mark walberg was standing next to kevin conally who is about 5-4 and walberg had 3 inches on him. thus walberg is 5-7.
BC says on 21/Apr/13
Mark is probably at the most 5'7.5
Cjh says on 20/Apr/13
I watched Jimmy Kimmel with Mark about his new movie (Pain and Gain), he only looked 1in shorter then Jimmy. I think he's 5ft8in and wears 2in lifts, making him close to Jimmy's listed 5ft11.5in.
Jones says on 19/Apr/13
@ Space Balls, I actually think that sports commentators are the ones who lead people to believe that 5'10-5'11 guys are short, they even call 6'0-6'1 guys small! In reality 5'10-5'11 guys look tall more often than short.
I know height says on 7/Apr/13
His wife is taller than him and she's 5ft 9in. He's at least an inch shorter
space balls says on 2/Apr/13
as a solid 5'10,5''guy,i can only say his 5'10'' claims are bull! please,at least dont say im ''only'' 5'10''.its people like you who led others to believe guys between 5'10''-5'11'' range is on the short side,when its actually solid average.im looking at this guys proportions;like his legs,his upper body length,his arms and its nowhere near how i look like! i'd say he is 1.71-72cm.no more than that!
Dman1528 says on 1/Apr/13
He's 5foot7.5
D-Dog says on 27/Mar/13
I think he's like, 5'-7" or somethin.
LG69 says on 22/Mar/13
@Arch Stanton, I was thinking the same thing. Wahlberg is no taller than 5'8" barefoot. If he's 5'10", it's with 2" lifts at least.
Arch Stanton says on 21/Mar/13
The funny thing is that he said "I'm only 5 ft 10", but referred to Fassbender as a "tall guy" who is just an inch taller than that!!
Arch Stanton says on 21/Mar/13
He looked a bit shorter than Graham Norton I thought but close. Funnily he did mention his father being short and weird looking and refer to 5'11 Fassbender as "tall and good looking". Judging from his comments I got the impression he has a bit of a height complex.
lascious says on 20/Mar/13
i thimk this guy is about 5.7 max. Saw him standing next to Eminem on TRL and Eminem is about 5.6-1/2 max. None of these guys are really tall. What I don't understand is how Em dis Ja Rule and neither of them is over 5.7 in my opinion love all of them though. just seems foolish.
Wyatt says on 15/Mar/13
The guy must pump iron 4 hours a day. Being that thick doesn't look so good on a short guy.
Wyatt says on 14/Mar/13
5'8" is really pushing it for Wahlberg. I don't buy it.
Rek says on 6/Mar/13
I ran into him at a pool a few years ago. I'm 5-9 and he was eye level with me. I think that his stocky body type makes him look shorter. Very nice guy.
Little one says on 15/Feb/13
Dont you people know, the appearance on screen means little. They have screan tricks to make short men appear taller. M.j. fox, vin diesel and many other actors spent their careers on lifts. Personally i think it makes them sexier. Theese men look more proportioate to me, and being a woman of 5'3 i dont want to look up to my man too far...i need to be able to kiss him, without tapping him on the shoulder ;)
sehr says on 14/Feb/13
Definately not the best photo, but here Wahlberg is next to Giovanni Ribisi who Rob has listed as 171 cm. Same shoes and looks pretty much the same, don't they?
Click Here
Hugz says on 12/Feb/13
Hi rob. I went to Rome recently and met mark as he was promoting his latest film and I'm a solid 174cm man. I found him to be a bit smaller than me. Around 171-172cm?
little sue says on 10/Feb/13
Looked about the same height as Graham Norton on his show the other night and about 3 inches lower than Micheal Fassbender.
