He also mentioned once that "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?"

@Matthew
You are probably 5 ft 7 if Mark was taller than you. Or shorter
Matthew said on 18/May/17
I just worked with Mark the last two day in Daddy's Home 2. I lucked out and got some serious featured extra work, so I was in close proximity to the man. I'm 5'10". I was wearing sneakers; he was wearing work boots. He was a touch taller than myself. Why are you ripping the good man off? I say the man is 5'10". And why was my post of months ago claiming he was 5'10" (in Patriot's Day)deleted? Do the people here have issues with the man? He's 5'10".

5'9-10 claim is comical, he's not over 5'8.
RisingForce said on 12/May/17
He looks very similar to Hopkins in that video, but certainly no taller. He looked only slightly taller in his Timberlands at Cinemacon, but Hopkins seemed to stand worse. Btw, I never believed the 210 for Pain and Gain. Wahlberg was bulkier than usual, but not THAT bulky. 210 at his height is gonna look bigger than he was. He might be 185 when he has more size, but I think he's often closer to 165-170 when he's lean.

Johan said on 7/May/17
The reason Mark looks so short at times is because he needs a stylist. He wears clothes that are too big especially the pants, I mean with his money he should be able to get fitted clothes. Guys who are 5'8" and under tend to have problems with getting clothes off the rack but there are business' that supply the proper attire.

Its a bit strange since he is only 5 cm tops under average for his age group and guys who are 6 feet have zero issues. It starts more around 6'4" on the other end. Ofc if he thinks he is 5'10" and his tailor supplies that...I can see how problems occur.

RisingForce said on 30/Apr/17
I agree 174 cm is too much, delancey, but you really have to find photos with Piven's feet visible since he's the most notorious tip-toer in Hollywood. But yeah, Wahlberg looked noticeably shorter than a 76 year old Robert Duvall, 63 year old James Caan, Sly Stallone and a 69 year old Jack Nicholson, all of whom were in that 174-175 cm range, plus, Joaquin Phoenix, who is an admitted 5'8" seemed taller than Wahlberg, imo, but that could have slight ground, footwear or posture difference for all I know. Wahlberg also seemed just a bit shorter than a 60 year old Robert De Niro, who was then no more than about 5'8.5" himself: Click Here I think 5'8" is fine for Marky Mark. He can surely look taller in some comparisons, but some of those may be when he has his Timberlands on or even a thicker basketball sneaker could give him a fraction advantage over someone with roughly 1" shoes. Honestly, he can look 5'7.5" at times as well, but 5'8" seems best for now since he doesn't appear to wear lifts, except for a role like The Italian Job and his build will make him look shorter at times.
Gladstone Screwer said on 29/Apr/17
I always thought of him as 5'6", so am surprised at 5'8". He's far too short to be a tough guy actor, he really is.
delancey said on 26/Apr/17
@Peter175 I wouldn't go as far as saying he's 174 cm, a 5'8.5 guy wouldn't look like this next to Jeremy Piven.
5'7 is too low but I do think he's a weak sort of 5'8.

Peter175 said on 25/Apr/17
Marky Mark is easily 5'8. Look at him next to the Rock and 6ft Christian Bale.

He might even be 174
delancey said on 25/Apr/17
@berta I'd go with Marky Mark. I think he's a 173/172 kinda guy while cruise is 172/171 range.

i wonder who is taller mark wahlberg or tom cruise?!?!?! thats something for everyone to think about :P
S.J.H said on 13/Apr/17
@CA

Lol dude. He can't be under 5'6 for absolute minimun. If he wear high top shoes he gota be close to 5'7.5 not 5'6 with it.
RisingForce said on 13/Apr/17
Here his head is straighter than the other pic with Sly and Caan, though he still looks more than an inch shorter: Click Here But despite this and the Departed and We Own the Night premieres, I think 5'8" is fine. He can look it and doesn't wear lifts except for movie roles like the Italian Job with a tall female lead. I've wrongly heard his boots called elevators, but they always look like normal Timberlands: Click Here Click Here Thick, sure, but popular style and imo, nice boots. At times I've heard him exaggerate his weight, but 173 pounds sounds real. Amazing how long he's stuck to the 5'10"! Honestly, I thought he would have dropped that and said 5'9" or 5'8.5" years ago, but he repeated the line from 1995 almost word for word a few years ago. It's strange for a guy who walks around liftless looking no more than 5'8" yet gives such an outrageous height lie. He must have realized he's shorter than his 5'10" brother?
CA said on 12/Apr/17
I met him in 1993. I am 171 cm about 5'7.5". He was almost 5'6" in his high top tennis shoes and sweat suit. I have never been able to take the movie "The Perfect Storm" or any of his movies for that matter, seriously since I know he is barely 5'5". Like many actors he has a tiny little body (long torso, super short legs and a giant head)... good for the camera.
Shredder said on 12/Apr/17
173 lbs is believable. I love the 5'10.0 , he really thinks he is exactly 5 ft 10 lol.
Balrog said on 12/Apr/17
If DiCaprio and Damon were downgraded, so should Mark.

He looks 171-172cm range quite often.

Regarding his weight, he's been a buff guy since always, so 175-180 pounds is believable. On "pain and gain" though he looked near 200 pounds.

Hey Rob I don't know if you saw this video but here he is measured at 5'10 in his sneakers.
Minute 1:50 Click Here
Editor Rob: it's not a measurement, Male/Age 44 and Height 5ft 10 are data that would be entered, the weighing portion is of course correct.

I bet nobody would think Wahlberg at 5ft 10 would seem only 173-4 pounds...of course being 5ft 8 and 173 pounds naked is believable.
KH said on 6/Apr/17
Weak 5'8. He has a big head too makes him look shorter.
HonestSlovene said on 7/Apr/17
He looks in the 5'7"-5'8" range to me. Definitely a guy who would probably only at best scrape a weak 5'8" at night, unlike Rob who is safely in the 173 cm zone at worst.
Sandy Cowell said on 5/Apr/17
@ Rising Force - I've only been watching Ellen for a couple of years now and originally I reckoned her go be 5ft3 or 4! When I found out her real height to be 3 plus inches more, I was well surprised - that was when I discovered this website!
She does always wear sneakers. She might look mega-tall in heels, but it's not her thing!
With Mark, she looked about 5ft6.5 and he a strong 5ft8!
RisingForce said on 4/Apr/17
He could be 5'8" flat. I didn't see him with Ellen, but Ellen never looked as tall as 5'7" to me, especially now. I wouldn't buy anything over 5'8" for Wahlberg either, especially since he didn't look over 5'7.5" at the Departed premiere: Click Here Click Here Certainly looks like the short guy next to 5'11" Leo, 5'9.5" Damon and even Jack, who had shrunk to about 5'8.5".
Sandy Cowell said on 4/Apr/17
I've just watched Mark strolling on to Ellen's stage at a leisurely pace and I cannot see him being below 5ft8. Both he and Ellen are in the same sort of footwear.
He's very nice and talking about his family's Christmas, just gone!
Cameron said on 1/Apr/17
Looks more like a solid 5'7" guy to me. Would probably just edge Cruise out though.
RisingForce said on 30/Mar/17
Wahlberg can look shorter than 5'8", such as with Stallone and a 63 year old James Caan, both 5'9" max: Click Here Same with Robert Duvall, around 5'8.5" since he was pushing 77 here and Joaquin Phoenix, who is 5'8" by his own admission and was also shorter than Duvall: Click Here Click Here If Phoenix is a solid 5'8" then Wahlberg may be a weaker 5'8" or even 5'7.5".
RisingForce said on 24/Mar/17
He can look anywhere from 5'7" to nearly 5'9". Here's a good pic with 6'0" Zakk Wylde who I've met: Click Here Zakk is close to his claimed 6'2" in those thick boots, at least 187 cm so Marky Mark does look near 5'9" in sneakers.

Still can´t believe this listing. Rob, he is probably THAT guy i seen most miss guessed by you.
RisingForce said on 26/Feb/17
Looked noticeably shorter than Jack Nicholson and Robert Duvall around 2006-2007 and a bit shorter than Joaquin Phoenix. I usually think he looks pretty short on screen too. I thought he was 5'7.5" for a long time, but that might be Jeremy Piven's height and Marky Mark is definitely taller so I could buy 5'7.75" or a weak 5'8", but 5'7.5" wouldn't surprise me.

Sandy Cowell said on 6/Feb/17
@ James - Not so! Tall is nice, though not essential! It doesn't make the person!
I have never considered not seeing someone because of his height!
If I had, I would have made a beeline for a bloke I knew who was 6ft4, but a complete w**ker!

holly bagoogle. I hate it when a guy says he is "only 5'10" as if 5'10 is not good enough height. Do you know how much 5'5-5'9 guys would kill to be this height? Really 5'10 is a damm good height for a man.

I agree , he isn't as short as people think , yet he can't be 5 '10 . 5'8 at least.
Phil said on 26/Jan/17
what 5 foot 8? he really looks tall on screen.
Sandy Cowell said on 25/Jan/17
I really enjoyed Mark's schoolteacher role in the film 'The Happening'. I just read the introduction to Mark's page, and I do agree that he comes over as taller than 5ft8, but I don't think he looks as tall as 5ft10, let alone 6ft2, as a girlfriend said to him!

I reckoned Mark to be around 5ft9. He is muscly and that might contribute to an altogether larger appearance on the Silver Screen.

I will go for 5ft8. He is inches smaller than 6ft Christian Bale in 'the Fighter', though recently when I visited Christian's page, there was a bit of a debate going on that he's a full 6ft! Well, I think he is! Mark - 5ft8, Christian - 6ft. Case closed.💪 🔔 💪

Anon said on 3/Jan/17
Look at beach photos of him next to his wife. I don't believe she would lie about her height of 5'9.5, probably 5'10 in the morning. Her biography claims 5'10. 5'8 is too low for mark. You can't lie with beach photos... No shoes. Mark is a strong 5'8.5, maybe even 5'9. Stop looking of photos of him next to celebrities with shoes on, they are inefficient.

He looks shorter than 5'8, maybe cause he's so wide, but still, his legs and arms are extremely short for a 5'8 guy.
172.4cm guy said on 2/Nov/16
Look at this photo of Mark and his co-stars from Pain & Gain...Click Here. If you look at the footwear, the thickness of the sole from their sneakers look pretty similar, so we can disregard any distortion from their shoes. With that in mind, look at Anthony Mackie, a 178cm guy, and Dwayne Johnson, a 191cm guy, in comparison to Mark Wahlberg. The top of Mark's head is right at Mackie's brow and right at Johnson's chin. Assuming that the human head is about 21 cm, this means Mark is about 7cm below Mackie and 20cm below Johnson. This puts Mark at roughly 171cm, or 5'7.5" Honestly, I also always thought this guy looked about my height, and even a friend who worked at Paramount studios and rode with him in the elevator said that he stood proportionately the same as I do next to her. So I'm guessing 171cm for him.
truefilm_buff said on 27/Oct/16
5'7.25 strong 5'7. This guy and cruise have that weak 5'8 thingy on this site. I think they are both in 5'7-5'7.25. Brilliant Celebs. True peoples men despite same controversial history. Only time he has looked true 5'8 is when he was next to MacFarlane.
josh jeffords said on 25/Oct/16
Sorry mark is not 5 8 he is smaller than mel who is under 5 8 both were tower by 6 2 danny glover mark more so and danny was middle aged.
He has never looked over 5 8 even on tv he was towered by weak 5 9 damon and ridiculously weak 5 11 leo and more so strong 5 11 alec.
likely clocks in around 5 6 bare foot 5 7 in shoes and hair barely believable 5 8 on tv.
Often looks small around average guys even guys who are listed under 5 8 on here...
He is an excellent actor and fairly funny too just a small man weight likely 165-180 he seems to fluctuate a lot.

MJKoP said on 3/Aug/16
5'7" is nonsense, even worse than the girlfriend's 6'2" estimation. And any beach shot is not a "kill shot"; with uneven terrain they are hardly indicative of true height. Wahlberg looked 4 inches shorter- at the MOST - than Jon Voight in a full body shot on even pavement...and Mark was wearing flat-looking shoes. He's probably 5'9" minimum.
Brad said on 21/Jul/16
5-7, any beach shot is a kill shot. MW's 5 foot 10 claim is the worst height lie by a celeb. Cruise would own him by an inch.

Paleman said on 16/Mar/16
Strange, I've always thought that Wahlberg looked closer to 5'7" than 5'8". I still think he could measure around 5'7.25"-5'7.5" (171-172cm).

But yeah, claiming 5'10" when he stands actually closer to 5'7"? Come on Mark... You could've gotten away with 5'9" but 5'10" is a joke of a stretch.
Len said on 1/Mar/16
At the Ted premiere, was not much taller than 5'4" Mila Kunis in heels.

Wahlberg consistently looks around 5'7", i.e. Tom Cruise height.

One of the shortest main lead male actors out there, i don't even believe 5'7 his lowest measure.

What are you guys talking about? He looks max 3 inches under him. Still would make him seem at least around 5 ft 8 without the boot.
Powerhouse said on 20/Dec/15
@KentD6125 Yes that's the appearance i was talking about, a full 5'8 for Wahlberg seems unlikely, Its hard to tell with his shoes It looks like he could have put a small insert in those boots which already have a decent heel. Looks around 4 inches difference to me between Fallon and Wahlberg. I'll stick with my 5'7-5'7.5 estimate. I've seen more evidence of him looking 5'7 range than a full 5'8. I bet real 5'8ers like Jeremy Renner, Zac Efron, and Joaquin Phoenix would edge him. Wahlberg is close to guys like Tom Cruise, Mark Ruffalo, Joe Rogan etc.

Mark can look a solid 5'8" compared to people with known heights, but he always looks short, even on screen, so that sounds more like 171-172 cm. Plus, 5'11" Alec Baldwin had a good 4 inches on him in The Departed. I suspect Alec may wear lifts, but Mark was barely taller than 5'6" Martin Sheen in that same movie. I believe he was slightly shorter than Joaquin Phoenix too. Although it could be his build and I don't think he wears lifts outside of movies, which makes it all the more puzzling he's stuck with claiming 5'10" for 20 years!

Check out this picture between Jimmy Fallon and Mark Wahlberg, yes there is a height difference but zoom in on Mark's shoes, looks like he may be wearing lifts.

Anybody see him on Jimmy Fallon? They were doing some game, and were side by side. There was a big difference in height. If Jimmy Fallon is 5'11.5, i'd say its safe to say Wahlberg is under 5'8.

I reckon he'd just edge out Cruise. Looks 5'8 in both Ted Films.

I was on a flight to Hawaii a few years back. As I was get up to exit I saw him behind me. We were both wearing flat sandals. He is 5'7" tops. My girlfriend who is 5'11" had a good 4" on him. She had sandals on too, no footwear advantage for anyone. She goes to me, that guy looks like Mark Wahlberg but shorter. He heard her and just smiled and said he looks bigger on screen, movie magic. I'm 6' 5 & 1/2 " evening measured, He jokingly asks me if I can sell him some height as I have more than enough. Nice guy.

I worked background on the set of Ted 2. It was the Comic Con: NYC scene. I was one of the XBox vendors. I stood relatively close to Mark several times. The closest time being around 8 feet away. I stand around 6'1" in socks. On this day I was wearing sneakers with around a 1-1/2" heel. He looked to be wearing the same type of sneakers and seemed to stand around 5'9". His sneakers could have had a bigger heel and his hair did seem a bit raised. So he could be around 5'8" but was wearing big shoes and sporting tall hair. He was really nice and very professional. He was on set about much as his stand-in. So not at all lazy compared to some actors Ive seen. He seemed rather fascinated with a very tall guy on set whom was dressed as Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. I heard Mark ask the guy how tall he was and this fella, whom likely gets this question more often than not, responded graciously. The tall guy seemed to be at least 7' as the top of my head reached his shoulders. When we were signing out he was standing right behind me. I was curious myself so I made the obvious inquiry. He simply replied "about 7 foot". To which I added "seems at least that, if not more". To which he just sort of shrugged. To sum up, I would estimate Mark Wahlberg to stand around 5' 8-1/2".

Yes 5 ft 10 is insane for him , with that said he can look about 5'8.5 to me at times.
Ian C said on 27/Oct/15
I love that "only" that actors insert before the height they are dishonestly claiming. See? the guy will seem to be saying, I'm being honest here in admitting that I'm not that tall, even as he is lying about his height.
the shredder said on 21/Oct/15
Rob , if you had to bet on 5'7 flat or 5'8.5 , which would you say? I saw a 90's pic of him with C. Thomas and he looked no less than you do.
[Editor Rob: I think he would measure nearer 5ft 8.5 than 7, so I'd say over 7.75 mark I'd place my bet, I wouldn't take an under 7.75 bet.]
the shredder said on 19/Oct/15
He does has a built that makes him appear shorter than he is , He honestly does look more 5'8 than 7 though.
Powerhouse said on 16/Oct/15
Mark Wahlberg gives a 5'7 impression, his arms are so stubby they look like they belong on a 5'4 guy. But I believe he'd measure 5'7.5 range, definitely not a full 5'8. Look at him in Four Brothers, The Fighter, The Gambler, and Pain And Gain. He just looks clearly short.
the shredder said on 15/Oct/15
5'10 is a joke , but he can look as big as 5'9.
the shredder said on 9/Oct/15
Rob , what would you guess his weight in TEd?
[Editor Rob: he might have been near to 200]
John said on 25/Sep/15
Hate when guys like this say they are 5'10" because then people think it is a short height since he's only like 5'7" or 5'8" in actuality. And if he adds "only" with 5'10", he must be a frikin midget.
The Dutch Guy said on 29/Aug/15
One girlfriend said: "You look about 6ft 2in on screen."

That one was definitely high on drugs.
Prince said on 23/Aug/15
He's only 5'10" if he's wearing elevator stilts.
an anonymous peach said on 13/Aug/15
Rob, do you agree that Marky Mark could measure a fraction or more shy of the 5ft 8 mark like Downey Jr?
[Editor Rob: anybody has a potential to be a little above/below a mark.]
Kdiidkea said on 23/Jul/15
i was with Mark in an elevator and im 5'10". He was definitely no taller than 5'7"
hijopotamus said on 19/Jul/15
"I'm ONLY 5'10""
LOL
At least Mark has a sense of humour...
hijopotamus said on 17/Jul/15
He is probably 5'10" when wearing tricky shoes.
Matthew said on 15/Jul/15
Hmm Click Here there's a sizable difference there.
MaryAnne said on 10/Jul/15
he is little but attractive mwah:*
fred said on 8/Jul/15
lol this little man was about 2 inches shorter than his wife who is 5-9 when they were at the beach.....I say he's 5-7
MD said on 24/Jun/15
There seems to be a significant drop-off of the "only x foot 7" claim, however, once you get to 6'0". I think folks stop it at 6'0" because then people actually start to check on the claim. lol
Matthew said on 21/Jun/15
not quite 6 ft says on 9/Apr/15
'Only 5 feet 10' is a bit of a joke coming from him. I swear the 'only x foot y' phrase is used by everyone who lies about their height.

Johnny Depp is another one that uses that line, he says he's "only" 5'11". I think Adam Sandler claimed the same thing. It's as if the actor is trying to impose the idea that you think they are bigger than that and they're just being brutally honest, so there's no chance you'll think they're fudging.
