Mark Wahlberg's Height is 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 his brother Donnie also claims "5ft 10", and Mark looks a couple of inches smaller. 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?" I can look pretty ordinary away from films. The camera does things to all of us."

Comment on the Height of Mark Wahlberg

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.

One girlfriend said: "You look about 6ft 2in on screen."

That one was definitely high on drugs.

He's only 5'10" if he's wearing elevator stilts.

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"

"I'm ONLY 5'10""
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

'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.

Whoops, spelled my username wrong in my previous post

Mark Wahlberg consistently looks 171cm range with Matt Damon and Dicaprio. He is also about 1 inch shorter than 5ft 8.5 Jack Nicholson. I think it's time for a downgrade Rob. His 5ft 10 claim is hilarious.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jun/15
I have seen 5ft7 listings for Wahlberg in the past.

Rob, maybe 5ft7(172cm) like Cruise?
PampaVal said on 3/Jun/15
Here he looks much taller than Mayweather, who is listed at 172 cm: Click Here

MW height it's hard to guess from pics with other people as it seems to vary often, maybe he wears elevator shoes?
the shredder said on 2/Jun/15
There is a pic from the 90's ( pre Lifts area ) of him next to C.Thomas Howell who me and Rob met and both agree on 5 ft 10 and he was no shorter than Rob looks next to him , Mark is nothing but in 5 ft 8 range.

He's no more than three inches shorter than Leonardo Dicaprio who is 5'11.5"-5'11.75":

jj said on 15/May/15
I think he's more 5-7 1/2
Buckster said on 30/Apr/15
Worked on a film with Wahlberg . No way he is 5'10" more like 5'6"
rocky said on 27/Apr/15
flameboy, thats a really bad comparison. the ground is uneven rofl
sidee said on 20/Apr/15
So what if he is short he is better looking and has way better aesthetics than us guys criticizing him on it
mande2013 said on 18/Apr/15
Mark Wahlberg is just edged out by legit 5'8 Joaquin Phoenix whom he's appeared on screen with a few times. I feel 5'7.25 is a possibility for Marky Mark.

Alex said on 31/Mar/15
More like 5'7-5'7.5
Gaza2121 said on 30/Mar/15
I don't think he looks as tall as 5'8" to be honest.
b-mint1994 said on 28/Mar/15
5'7-5'8" range. No more, no less. This guy makes honest 5'10" guys look bad.
Tunman said on 25/Mar/15
@Mat 5'10
absolutely.His former girlfriend would have needed a pair of glasses.
In some scenes,it's possible that he appears 5'10 with camera angles but 6'2 is a joke.Anyways 5'8 is fair possibly a little fraction less.
Mat 5'10 said on 23/Mar/15
His former girlfriend might have been brain damaged to even think he could look anything above 6 feet. And ''only 5'10''? Seriously dude? ''Only''? He's just making a fool out of himself

200 pounds is about 91 kg that is huge for a Guy 172-173cm he wasnt over that in pain and gain or Max 205
Lorne??? said on 21/Mar/15
I'm sure Marky Mark would edge out Tom Cruise. Marks 172-173, Cruise is 171-172.
bigman77 said on 27/Feb/15
5ft7 is precise
Jeff said on 24/Feb/15
Rob, do you think that his eye level is particularly low and could make him look a little shorter than he really is?
[Editor Rob: might be a bit lower than average, but some hair volume at times might make it seem more.]
Rixton said on 21/Feb/15
Walhberg at 137 is hard to picture. Hes looked thinner in some movies like boogie nights but not sure he was as low as 137.

He usually looks 170 imo, thats what hes listed at.
sandon said on 19/Feb/15
LOL Only 5'10!
this little guy is lucky to get listed as 5'8
the shredder said on 14/Feb/15
He looks closer to 5'8 than 5'7 , He recently lost 60 lbs , going down to 137 he claims
Jeff said on 9/Feb/15
Rob, do you think he'd edge out Cruise if they were standing side by side?
[Editor Rob: barefoot they might measure very close, but I think it is possible he could edge him a little.]
Jon said on 2/Feb/15
What would you say his weight and head size is Rob? He looks as stocky and big headed as I am.
[Editor Rob: maybe 9.5 inch head, but his hair I think can help it look a bit bigger, his weight could be near 195-200 pounds at times, maybe for Pain&Gain more than that.]
5'11" barefoot said on 25/Jan/15
with those shorts arms and legs, never 5'10"
Z said on 22/Jan/15
I've seen him in person and when he says, "I look pretty ordinary in person," he's right. He just looked like an average guy and not nearly as large/tall as I had expected. I'm pretty short and I couldn't tell you how tall he is, but he really just looks like your average guy IRL, maybe 5'8"?
Bishop said on 17/Jan/15
I still think he's no more than 172 cm. Don't know what kind of nerve gives him the need to claim 5'10".
TJE said on 16/Jan/15
Looks 6'2 on screen? Lol he always looks 5'8 no matter what.
Rey said on 15/Jan/15
Five foot seven in flat feet.
Realist said on 15/Jan/15
Hey Rob long time no see, i just saw some of the pics with Jonah Hill as some people here suggested. He looks barely 5'7 with him. It may have been the angle or footwear difference but i can say one thing for sure your 5'8 listing for him and 5'7.75 for Cruise is over listed they should both be downgraded by 1/2 an inch.
Cruise Should be at flat 171.
This guy could be 171.5 or 171.
Matt Damon should come down to 176
DiCaprio is fine at 182 but i still think he had some growth in mid-late 90s after basketball diaries.
Bale 181
The Rock is fine.
Pitt 180 is fine.
Clooney 177-78
Jonah Hill 168 5'6.25 is good.
Dave Franco at 165.
James at 179 is fine.
Channing Tatum at 183.
Timberlake at 183 but even 182 us fine.
Gosling 184.
Cooper 184.
Ben Stiller 167-68,same as Jonah Hill. 3 cm b/w him and Cruise.
This guy is definitely less than you and Jenny by atleast 1.5 cms.

Look at him and his wife who is 5 ft 9 (models are not always truthful) and i know you can say its not the best picture as its a moving shot but with both of them barefoot i still think its clear there is more than just 1 inch between them.
Jerjer said on 5/Jan/15
My a solid 5ft 8 barefoot so he is definitely a 5ft 8.25 to 5ft 8.5 tops

He has a lot of nerve claiming 5ft10 in the same way The Rock does claiming 6ft5!
BOXOFFICEFLOP said on 23/Dec/14
dude is 5'7. tops
Silent_D said on 15/Dec/14
I saw a photo with mark and jackie chan. He looks a little taller but he is a notorious lift wearer. I know jackie is close to 5 foot 8 now. I think mark is about 5 foot 8.
mike67 said on 11/Dec/14
Just proves a guy 5ft 7 or so can portray a rugged character as mark did in so many films. He is the Steve McQueen of this era. The dude can play comedy,a good family guy.
