How tall is Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg's 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 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."

I think he's more 5'7.75. You would probably edge him out. I dont think he would be any more then just over 5'9 in shoe height, much less 5'10.

My uncle is about 5'10 who saw him standing next to him at an underwear convention in L.A. wearing only underwear lol. He is said that Mark was short. But idk if Mark was wearing shoes or not and how much shorter he was than my uncle.

5'7.75 possible rob?
Zane said on 31/Mar/16
Rob,is 5 feet 7.5 inches unlikely?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't have guessed him just that mark, but roughly 5ft 8...saying that, at times he does seem to wear boots which might give him a boost.
Lou said on 29/Mar/16
Who cares if he's 5 foot 8 my dad gave me this advice don't worry if a woman is taller or shorter than you in bed everyone becomes the same height which is true since my wife is 2 inches taller than me and I give her organism
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.
Johno said on 17/Feb/16
One of the shortest main lead male actors out there, i don't even believe 5'7 his lowest measure.
Jeff said on 17/Feb/16
He looks around 5'8 but his particularly low eye-level can make him look 5'7.5 at times
Aaron zamora said on 5/Feb/16
Rob, is 5'7.5-5'7.75 possible?
Editor Rob: a fraction under over a listing is always possible...I'm not sure whalberg has looked 5ft 7.5 more often than near 5ft 8 though.
CD said on 6/Jan/16
I honestly saw 6-7 inches difference between him and Will Ferrell in Daddy's Home. Marky was about 2 inches below his eyelevel for sure.
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 3/Jan/16
He appeared to be over 5'8" by Will Ferrell in Daddy's Home.
the shredder said on 22/Dec/15
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.
RisingForce said on 20/Dec/15
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!
KentD6125 said on 19/Dec/15

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.
Powerhouse said on 17/Dec/15
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.
MaskDeMasque said on 3/Dec/15
I reckon he'd just edge out Cruise. Looks 5'8 in both Ted Films.
Max said on 30/Nov/15
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.
B.T. Stomp said on 29/Nov/15
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".
the shredder said on 28/Oct/15
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"

"I'm ONLY 5'10""

At least Mark has a sense of humour...

He is probably 5'10" when wearing tricky shoes.

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.

Whoops, spelled my username wrong in my previous post
an aninymous peach said on 5/Jun/15
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 5ft7½ listings for Wahlberg in the past.

Rob, maybe 5ft7Ύ(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.
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 26/May/15
He's no more than three inches shorter than Leonardo Dicaprio who is 5'11.5"-5'11.75":

I think he's more 5-7 1/2

Worked on a film with Wahlberg . No way he is 5'10" more like 5'6"

flameboy, thats a really bad comparison. the ground is uneven rofl

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.

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

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.
MissAnne1 said on 26/Aug/12
Many mons ago back in the funky bunch days, my fiends and I spent a good two yers hanging out with him and his crew on the road. I am 5'8 on the dot in my bare feet, the last time I saw Mark in 1994, he and I were both in bare feet and eye to eye, forehead to forehead, he is 5''8, no shorter or taller. He is also very well mannered and a super nice guy, total sweetie and always smelled good! I think when he is beefed up it makes him appear more stocky. Still no matter his height, great guy and good actor!
matt789 said on 25/Aug/12
5 foot 7 is correct he never looked 5 ft 8 to me
Shaun said on 24/Aug/12
5'7.5 is a good guess but 5'7".5"-5'8" more likely, 5'7" or shorter is really pushing it.

he has to be 5'7 flat imo. he was a inch shorter than ice cube and they were wearing the same footwear but i am done with this page for now. i never liked wahlberg so i shouldn't keep wasting my time trying to convince anyone that he is 5'7.

LOL , that was funny , Well I'm not big on him too but I judge height .

He wants to star in the US remake of headhunters, which will be ideal as the main character needs to be around 1.68 meters.
Jack said on 18/Aug/12
Mickey Ward fought at 140 pounds his entire career. Wahlberg is probably between 160-170 pounds in The Fighter. It isn't like in real life where the fighter has to get down to a certain weight for his division. Wahlberg never had to cut weight so he was never 146 pounds in the movie. However, I bet Wahlberg was around that weight in Boogie Nights.
hd said on 17/Aug/12
strong 5'8 or taller.
RSKTransport said on 16/Aug/12
Yea your right about looking too muscular for 146 lbs but I dont think he actually weighed 146 himself.However,you would be suprised how muscular some guys can look at 147 lbs.Did you see Tim Bradley for the Pacquiao fight.These guys just get very lean then dehydrate themselves for weigh-in, then quickly rehydrate for the fight and gaim 10-20 lbs.
B said on 15/Aug/12
Just watched "The Fighter" again and wondering how any guy that muscular could be any taller than 5'6 and still only weigh 146. How tall was Mickey ward supposed to be?

5'6 is ridiculous for him.I've seen a lot of proves that he's AT LEAST 5'8 to 5'9.My closest guess is 5'8.5


@... Nobody marks height with shoes on.
nyczaces said on 12/Aug/12
Can't be 5'8 or 5'9, he's like 5'6, if that.
leonari said on 11/Aug/12
Reality: Here we go again...No way in hell is Wahlberg above 5'8" and he probably is 1-2 cm below that!
leonari said on 10/Aug/12
175? Yeah in Timberlands. So he lowered his 1995 quote where he said 5'10". In another 17 years he will claim 5'8" which is closer to reality but still to tall for him.
the shredder said on 10/Aug/12
WOW he is claiming 175cm ? ... I buy this , but in shoes !
Mark said on 9/Aug/12
Click Here 1:39 175 cm
the shredder said on 8/Aug/12
Anything under 5'7 is nuts ... Even though he is clearing lying a guy claiming 5'10 at under 5'7 would not even reach 5'10 in his best lifts and would look under 5'8 and he looks about 5'9 at times with lifts ... 5'7.5 plus 2.5 lifts = measuring 5'10 = looking about 5'9 .

My guess 5'7.5 ... under 5'7 you are kidding .
Hob said on 7/Aug/12
BigT, he only look 16-17cm max shorter than will ferrell in socks wear pictures walking on the road. i agree max 186cm for ferell so wahlberg is 5'6 min
leonari said on 5/Aug/12
Shredder: Yep 5'7.5 guy. I never fall below 5'7" ever. I think claiming an average of morning, noon and night like you do is the fairest way to give your height.
BigT: I don't see Wahlberg at 168. Thats impossible. But a 5'7" flat is reality in my opinion. Clever camera angles, loves Timberlands Boots-possibly with lifts ( He wears Timbs on sunny days in L.A!!!) and has a massive upper body...all these come into play that he can look 1-2 inches taller than he is.
Shredder: I will look if I find a cheap DVD of the movie "The Happening". If Mark gets accurately measured at 5'8.5" I will eat my shoe. Or his Timberlands...
the shredder said on 4/Aug/12
Leonari , I'm about 5'6.5 by noon , morning about a flat 5'7 , night about 5'6.25 . I go with 5'6.5 because I feel thats what I average out to . So you pretty much a 5'7.5 guy ?
leonari said on 4/Aug/12
Shredder: Thats exactly my height man! After a good night sleep I wake up at around 172,5 cm and by the afternoon I fall to 171 cm. Whats your exact legit height Shredder? 169??
the shredder said on 3/Aug/12
What is your legit height Leonari , 171cm ?
.... said on 2/Aug/12
I believe Wahlberg is 173 in the morning and 171 in the evening.
the shredder said on 1/Aug/12
Leonari , if its true then somebody should get the dvd ... Maybe it was a joke or a shoe height ?
jtm said on 1/Aug/12
just like jean claude van damme was measured at 5'9.5 yet he constantly looks no more than 5'8. wahlberg is 5'7 flat. he was probably measured in boots.
leonari said on 1/Aug/12
Shredder: 5.8,5? The guy must have been joking.
the shredder said on 31/Jul/12
I remember a poster saying he was measured 5'8 1/2 on the dvd features of The Happening !
leonari said on 30/Jul/12
Shredder: Mhhh. So we basically agree on everything and are close in height!! I also see Mark as min a good 5'7" to 5'7.5" max and I am a kid of the 80's born at the end of the 70's. No way is Mark under 5'7". Maybe you are right. Maybe I put too much emphasis on body shape. To a certain extent I agree. Often I walk down the street and I see a guy from afar coming toward me and I am sure he is my height or even shorter. Once he passes by I realize he is a good 5'9" or a tad taller. Perception, clothing and body shape can throw me off.
Thanks for pointing it out. I appreciate it and will take it into account in the future.

Btw Leonari , I was born in the 80's and I don't think he is 5'8 , 5'7.5 is my guess , but one thing I notice in your posts is that you look too much into how somebody is shaped , Me and Rob just had a talk about that , I measured a guy at just over 5'10 barefoot and with his stocky bulit and short legs you would shout 5'8 or 5'9 . I always thought 5'7.5 for him , 5'7 max or under 5'7 is a bit downgrading but I think he is lucky to be 5'8 .
the shredder said on 29/Jul/12
lol Leonari , I'm 5'6.5 159 lbs , btw I was joking in my last post .
leonari said on 29/Jul/12
Shredder: So Whalberg is not atlectic or at least was? Have you seen his Calvin Klein ads in the 90's wise guy? Click Here: Click Here Or maybe you weren't born? That must be it. You post a lot of crap (nothing new really) boosting almost every single height on this site with no proof and no reason.
So who is athletic in your opinion? JONAH HILL? I bet you are an overweight 5'11 (or taller) guy who can't lose a pound if his life depended on it. Good for you.
Look at Vegas's pic: So thats a 5'8" guy? NEVER...His legs look like legs of 5'6" guy. His arms are T-Rex like (arms are way short on this guy) . But you know what? I won't comment on your posts and you not on mine? How about that?
leonari said on 29/Jul/12
Cool pic! Thanks Vegas. Yeah if I pump up like crazy thats what I would look like. He should lose the bulk after the movie. Short guys just can't get a overly big muscle frame...It looks...OFF. Way off if you ask me.
Vegas said on 29/Jul/12
@ leonari, i never even gave an estimate for wahlberg, dude can be 4ft for all i care, i just noticed watching the other guys that he was about 6 inches (maybe 7 at a push) shorter than ferrell (both men in socks), don't know where people are coming up with 10 inches difference, thats a measured 9.5 inches Click Here

to make you feel better though here is a shot of wahlberg looking short next to dwayne johnson, he looks 5'7 there for sure Click Here
the shredder said on 28/Jul/12
Not taller then 5'8 ... Everybody is a athletic 5'7 to leonari , but he don't want these under average guys taller then him .
leonari said on 28/Jul/12
Vegas: Whatever man. 7 inches , 10 inches. Wahlberg does not look 5'8" barefoot!! He looks 170-171 max. You now why I know?? I know how I look and I have a very very similar body type (wide shoulders, athletic muscular body, short legs) and I am probably the exact same height as Mark. So all you wise guys who say Mark Wahlberg is 5'9" (like the height expert Reality) ... Please spare us the BS. Thats fanboys talking. Sooner or later even Rob will realize that Wahlbergs height here is off by at least 2 cm.
jtm said on 28/Jul/12
shorter than joaquin phoenix in both the yards and we own the night. he is 5'7 tops and very overrated. joaquin phoenix and ryan gosling should be getting the roles he is.

Not that one. Is that him? He looks like a wrestler after Ultimate Warrior juice. He's under 5' 8".
leonari said on 25/Jul/12
BRAD: Are you referring to this pic. Click here: Click Here
Here he is on the beach, no boots, huge frame...and yes you are right: He looks every bit of 5'7". I always said he is below 5'8". What do you say ROB?
Brad said on 25/Jul/12
When caught without his standard height enhancing footwear, he implodes to his 5' 7" reality. No footwear rare beach shots are Stallone-like, real short looking, especially with the frame.
truth said on 14/Jun/12
Is it me or does anybody else think that this guy is like 5 feet 6? He doesn't exactly get dwarfed by taller people because he does have a big head, frame and has a lot of muscle on him. He looks around 180lb nowadays. He wears big shoes most of the time, with lifts.
the shredder said on 14/Jun/12
He is about 2 " shorter then his brother that claims 5'10 , Mark is about 172 cm
Reality said on 13/Jun/12
This is your illusion about elevator boots.At least I would like to hear some proof.5'8 can be right but if we could choose between 5'7 and 5'9 then rather 5'9.
But from pictures he looks strong 5'8 or weak 5'9.
Brad said on 12/Jun/12
Under 5' 8". Big boot guy with custom lifts.
LauraSki said on 12/Jun/12
LotM, that's ridiculous. Maybe they saw someone who looks like him.
LotM said on 10/Jun/12
He's 5'5". My neighbor (well-connected in the boxing world, mind you) knows the some of the people who worked on "The Fighter." They told him he was about 5'5" and that he was really short. We were also told that he gets that "five-eight" height due to his big boots along with his lifts.
LauraSki said on 10/Jun/12
I would say this listing is right. He's got the physique/frame of a 5'8 guy and he looks like a 5' 8 guy. 5'7-5'9 ain't right for him.
Reality said on 10/Jun/12
lol @JJ and yukk mouth,that was funny.

anything below 5'8 is ridiculous for him.
JJ said on 10/Jun/12
He's gotta be at most 5'7. Just watched Guy's Choice Awards and he stood on stage right next to Seth McFarlane who was still 2 ~ 3 inches taller than Wahlberg. By "still" I mean Wahlberg was wearing some thick elevator shoes while Seth was wearing normal tennis shoes/sneakers. No way is this guy 5'8.
yukk mouth said on 9/Jun/12

Chris said on 31/Jan/12
At times he looks suspiciously near to 5'9-5'10 range, I think he wears lifts in some occasions. Next to Clooney and Damon he looks a weak 5'8 guy. 5'7.75 (172 cms) for Wahlberg.

@Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP: You are crazy.Clooney is 180cm and Wahlberg looks close to 5'8 next to him (this is one of the rare pics where Clooney has kinda good posture) but we don't know who had a footwear advantage.
charlie said on 12/Oct/07
Thanks Leonari, nice to be believed:) Photos can be so hard to analyze with footwear and posture to consider, that's why I threw that in there, seemed to be few people who had met him. Shy guy, but very well mannered and genuinely nice.
Leung said on 10/Oct/07
Derbi, that photo is so sweet, it shows Marky Mark is all grown up and a family man. Yeah I agree he looks taller than his wife in that pic. But there are dozens of full body length pics on the internet which clearly shows that he is shorter than her.
He is still in the 5’8”-5’8.5” range.

charlie said on 6/Oct/07
I have met him twice at a golf course where I used to work in Orlando, FL. I am 5'10.5 in barefeet (honest height). Mark was wearing golf shoes which were prob about as big as the shoes I wear for work. He is 5'9 at the very most, 5'8 in barefeet is more likely. Without a doubt the nicest celeb. I have ever met, and I've met a number working at this resort. Was very soft-spoken and humble, completely "normal" kinda guy. Even came in the golf shop and paid for himself!
glenn said on 5/Oct/07
lets not forget 10 years ago joaquin looked 5-10 to me.7 or 8 months ago he looked 5-8.
Tuckfard said on 4/Oct/07
Mark has been slouching pretty badly in recent years, and the Joaquin Pheonix pics don't reveal much since they're film stills. Joaquin is definitely wearing lifts.
Leung said on 4/Oct/07
In regards to Wahlberg, I don’t think he wears lifts because he consistently looks in the 5’8”-5’8.5” range. I have never seen any bizarre 5’10” appearances by Wahlberg.
Leung said on 4/Oct/07
Bombay Rocker, I have noticed the same about Phoenix.
Generally he looks 5’8” which I think is his true height. But the past few years he is regularly looking 5’10” at red carpet events, particularly The Oscars.
I remember one year watching The Oscars on tv and seeing him standing next to Nic Cage only 2” shorter, and I thought WTF!
Then later on he was shaking hands with John Travolta and again only about 2” shorter and I thought WTF again!

In the movies I have seen him in he appears 5’8”, therefore I think he wears normal footwear when filming movies. I think he reserves the lifts for red carpet events because that’s the only time I have seen him look like 5’10”.
Bombay Rocker said on 4/Oct/07
Editor Rob i am sure you know that phoenix wears lifts quite often, that's why in some of the other pics with people who are qround 5 feet 10, he looks their height. I am not entirely sure if he isn't wearing lifts here but barefoot i agree phoenix is 173 - 174 max.
Editor Rob said on 3/Oct/07
Phoenix was looking as tall or taller in some pics with that mark ruffallo recently! Wahlberg/phoenix have done other pics on gettyimages, I'm too lazy to link but they are fairly close. I still think mark has poorer posture, a kind of droopy shoulders, like he had in The Departed.
Valeri said on 3/Oct/07
Id go with 5'7.5 for mark Rob. He looks it with good posture next to Phoenix.If Phoenix is 5'8 that is.

Rocky said on 1/Oct/07
I agree with Dave. Mark's torso looks shorter in the second pic.

Also, did he lose a lot of weight between the first and 2nd pic or what? Not only in the body but the jawline seems to have a completely different shape.
dave said on 1/Oct/07
Mark...Glenn is at 5'7.5 in the bottom pic, Whalberg look not even an inch taller.
Mark said on 30/Sep/07
He is leaning slightly to his left. Also compare mouth, eye and shoulder levels. Mark Wahlberg looks closer to 5'9", or about 5'8.5."
Lmeister said on 24/Sep/07
The height difference can be due to foot wear and pavement. There is a lot of pics of me(5'8'') where I look as tall as my 5'11'' friends. In We own the night Mark Wahlberg is the same height as Joaquin Phoenix and Robert Duvall.
derbi said on 22/Sep/07
watch the film the basketball diaries.
wahlberg is in converse all the time, and compared to leo he does never look under 5'9".
Realheight 88 said on 21/Sep/07
I think he is 5'8.5''(174 cm).He is a little taller than glenn in both of pics, so i believe 5'8.5'' suits fine.
Anonymous said on 20/Sep/07
I though he was like 5'10" because I saw a site were that said it, could be like 5'9 3/4"(177cm). But I never though 5'8". But thats the magic of Hollywood.
derbi said on 20/Sep/07
but dave, 2-3 hours after bed glenn is 5'8" too, or maybe 5'7.75" or something like that.
So what you sa is, that wahlberg is 0.25" taller than glenn. And I think the difference is more as you can see on the pics.
dave said on 20/Sep/07
derbi....he may be 5'8.75 or 5'9 fresh out of bed. but 2 or 3 hours (which i consider to be our height) Whalberg is down to 5'8''.
derbi said on 18/Sep/07
dave, so glenn shrinks during the day like all of us. right. But you know celebs like wahlberg are also human beings. So what I want to say that if hes 0.75' taller than glenn at night, that makes him aroung 5'9" at night. plus wahlberg has a big forehead, so a hat makes him look shorter, you have to consider that too.
glenn said on 18/Sep/07
im not changing my mind.just stating the facts.i always said 5-9 was a possibilty.but 5-8 most likely.
Bombay Rocker said on 18/Sep/07

Article here compares mark with vince papale, the character he portrayed in invincible and lists vince as 6 feet 2 and mak as 5 feet 8.5. I'll most probably buy that 5 feet 8.5 thingy. Mark is between 5 feet 8 - 5 feet 9, thats for sure.

[Editor Rob: South Jersey Magazine is the source it said.]
dave said on 18/Sep/07
Glenn both of these pics are at night. you're 5'8'' in mornings and like all of us shrink down about a quarter of an inch right? If you're standing 5'7.75 in the bottom pic the most Whalberg could be is 5'8.5. He is wearing a hat as well, you both relaxed posture.
derbi said on 18/Sep/07
glenn, why is that? just changed your mind or what? lol
glenn said on 18/Sep/07
i do remember im being taller than me in the old days,but i was 5-7.but i couldve sworn he was shorter 7 years ago.
derbi said on 17/Sep/07
Glenn, tht wahlberg looks 5'6", 5'7" to you in the departed is just an illusion. It's partly because of the haircuts, camerangles etc. Also because his clothes made him look even bulkier than he already is.
Leonari, you can't say in general that v makes people look taller, because that's no right. You can make people look taller on screen, but especially if you want them to also look taller next to the other actors, you need to work with lifts, angles etc. during the whole film. If they don't give special attention to the actor's heights when shooting the film, short actors will look how they really are next to taller actors, or even shorter.
leonari said on 17/Sep/07
Of course it's possible. But I can only repeat myself: If the man is 5'9" or over he has a very starnge habit of looking short...especially in movies which is kinda absurd if you ask me. Tv makes people appear taller...not smaller.
glenn said on 17/Sep/07
i agree with derbi.judging from my recent pic,its possible he is 5-9.but when he looks 5-6,5-7 in the departed im not sure.5-8 is the safest.
glenn said on 17/Sep/07

how can this guy be only 5'8"? I'm totaly convinced that he's a full 5'9".
Look a these pics, his wife is 5'9" and in heels. so about 6'! He has probably 1 inch soles. So if he was only 5'8" there would be a 3 inch difference. I see 2 icnhes a the absolute most.

Invincible Reel Story vs. Real Story at ChasingtheFrog has him at 5-8 1/2:

Is the real Vince Papale the same height and weight as the actor who played him in the movie?

No. The actor who portrayed Papale in the film, Mark Wahlberg, is actually much smaller. Wahlberg is only 5-foot-8½ and 170 pounds, while the real Papale is 6-foot-2, 185 pounds. Despite their physical differences, Papale says of his big screen counterpart, "He plays me better than I do." And Papale should know, he was involved with the film from script to wardrobe to every last detail. -sjmagazine.net

Ive seen that the Glenn guy hes with is exactly 5'8 and Mark Wahlberg looks a little taller, like 5'9 maybe 5'9 and a half
Tuckfard said on 13/Sep/07
Full body modeling for a designer like Calvin Klein at 5'8" as a guy is ridiculous. Kate Moss is the shortest female supermodel at 5'6," and even she is about 1-2 inches taller than the average for white girls in the US.

From the pics you posted lugano, Mark's legs (and whole body) look longer than mine, and I'm a bit over 5'9." Furthermore, he is looking 3.5 - 4 inches taller next to Kate. Kate could very well be shorter than 5'6", but I've seen too many photos of Mark looking 5'9" to 5'10" to think otherwise.

Here are some pics with Mark and his girlfriend Rhea Durham who is listed at 5'9." Mark is wearing ~1.5 inch boosting Timbs, and Rhea may be wearing flats (although I'm not a good judge of women's shoes). I still say about 5.9 1/2, but in these pics he is looking 5.8 1/2.

leonari, his whole body was used. He has very very good proportions, so theres no point for ck not to use him.
And I don't like you saying if he's 5'8", because common, he's clearly taller then glenn so he must be over 5'8". I think 5'9" is a good guess.
leonari said on 12/Sep/07
Tuckfard: You are soo off that it hurts my eyes. One more wise guy who has no clue. How tall is Donnie Whalberg who clearly is 2 inches taller in every pic? 6 feet or above? moron.
And even if he is 5'8" :his upper body was used in the Calvin Klein Ads plus the underwear part. Not his legs. And since his upper body was ripped as hell CK let him model.

Tuckfard said on 11/Sep/07
I believe Marky Mark's claim of of 5'10." I've seen dozens of photos with him and others, including the ones with 5'10" Andre Benjamin (Outkast), 5'9" Jason Statham, and 5'9" Jeremy Piven. I've also checked out the pictures with his brother Donnie and the Wahlberg family photo. Judging from the two pics above, Wahlberg is definately taller than Glenn in the first, and is leaning in the second, wearing a cap that conceals his tall forehead. I just can't imagine that Calvin Klein would want a 5'8" guy to model underwear, so I see Wahlberg as 5'9.5" - 5'10."
Brah said on 7/Sep/07
Just saw "The Big Hit". He had a poofy brushed up hair style in the movie that made him look slightly taller, but minus the hair, he looked 5'8" next to 6' Lou Diamond Phillips. He was also about the same height in shoes as 5'5" Christina Applegate who was wearing these 3 to 4 inch heels.
Bombay Rocker said on 1/Sep/07
That will be cool Rach if you can pull it off but i doubt he will pose barefoot just because it sounds weird asking someone to have a pic with but barefoot and he might even get what you are upto but do you have some plan or something for this...just curious.

I actually have to confess something here but i still feel mark is atleast 5 feet 8, i agree he wears lifts. I saw this guy come where i work and he was wearing those same nike air which mark wears very often and they were like kinda high top and i always thought those kinda shoes are low top and that you cant fit lifts in it and besides that except for invincible, most of his movies he is mostly wearing heeled shoes and very rarely in sneakers...but hey i am not certian if he does wear lifts but those kinda shoes, fitiing in lifts seems easy and not very hazardous so ya maybe.
Bombay Rocker said on 23/Aug/07
Agreed he can be 5 feet 8 but there is no way in hell that he is less than what Rob has him at.
glenn said on 22/Aug/07
true dave.and maybe lifts.

He is maximum 1 inch taller than you Glenn, and who knows there could be camera trickery. Marky's in the 5'8'' range.
radio_man said on 22/Aug/07
i think he's between 5'7 and 5'8
I was watching shotter yesterday and I swear..he looks so hort and Kate mara was her co-star..well taht girl is tiny so he can look tall next to her..
I can bet mark it's 5'7..maybe 5'8 but I doubt that even
Bombay Rocker said on 20/Aug/07
I can say one thing for sure....mark was sure wearing lifts in invincible but there are a few good scenes where mark is wearing sneakers and i am pretty sure there was no room for lifts in those sneakers but i can bet all my money i have that he is no less than 5 feet 8

very true viper.but i have a 5-9 friend i swear is 5-8.
Viper said on 19/Aug/07
"ain't 5'9" barefoot. I'd bet the farm on that."

And Id bet money that he doesnt quite reach 5-8 too. Maybe hes as high as 5-7 1/2, but no taller. Somebody needs to find that magazine article where he said he was 5-7 1/2. And who knows, that could be a morning height as well.
derbi said on 18/Aug/07
leonari, why should he wear lifts in front of his house, in casula clothes, in sneakers/casuals?
Anyways I think that only height obsessed guys would wear 1 inch lifts (because who cares about the difference of 1 inch?!) and I think wahlberg is deffinitely not one of those guys, because he really isn't in need if that...
NoelSarah, would be great, if you could post that pic. (And would be really really great if you could measure yourself again, just to be sure about your height)
NoelSarah said on 17/Aug/07
I just had a photo taken with him near the set of "The Happening," and I am a solid 5'8". He appears to be an inch or two taller than me, but he might've been wearing tall shoes or something? I should've looked more carefully.
leonari said on 16/Aug/07
Derbi: Rachelle changed her mind on Marks height. Read previous posts. She doesn't think he was 5'9.25" anymore. More like a strong 5'8". What Glenn saw could have easily be 1 inch lifts which you can accomodate in almost any shoe.
derbi said on 16/Aug/07
myspace celebrity, charlize theron, was during the whole italian job film in heels. You have to consider that in your estimations.leonari and bombay I think we aree that he is 5'8" minimum, and probably 5'9.5" tops. Leonari, don't forget that Glenn AND Rachelle both saw him at 5'9.25"!
And about the fear trailler, 1. we don't see their feet and the ground level(pavement) 2. William Peterson's shoulders really do look much higher, but if you look at their heads I don't see a full 2 inches difference. Thats probably because wahlberg has a pretty big forehead and William Peterson doesn't.

i think 5'8 is correct; he was slightly shorter than charlize theron in the italian job
Bombay Rocker said on 15/Aug/07
I said 5 feet 9 which is 175.....check my post it says 5 feet 8.5 - 5 feet 9.25 most likely and then at the end i said "my guess is 175" and by the way thats my opinion mate.....you have yours and i respect that.
leonari said on 14/Aug/07
Here is the Trailer of "FEAR" 1996. At 0:54 you see William Peterson who is a strong 5'10" be at least 2 inches taller than Mark Wahlberg. Ok we don't see their feet, but look at the shoulder levels and Peterson has his head tilted forward. And remeber this was long before Mr. Wahlberg was an oscar nominated Superstar. I see max a 5'8" guy unlike a whole bunch here who truly think that Wahlberg is near 5'10" like my dear friend Mr. Bombay Rocker believes: 5'9.25 most likely...Thats 2 cm below a full 5'10": what a joke.here the link: Click Here

i have to agree with bombay rocker, as glenn and rachelle did too.
leonari and viper, I'm sorry but you guys are talking nonsense
glenn said on 11/Aug/07
exactly bryan.and possibly lifts.dmeyer you are right.i thought he gave the illusion of 5-6ish actually in the departed.
Bryan said on 11/Aug/07
He might be a little taller than Glenn, but it's tricky with the hats, the lean, the footwear and the street level.
Bombay Rocker said on 10/Aug/07
Well as much as i respect dmeyer and his sightings and in general his calculations and estimations are pretty accurate but i will definitely disagree on this one.....he is noway under 5 feet 8, next to impossible...5 feet 8, yes possible, 5 feet 8.5 - 5 feet 9.25 most likely, over 5 feet 9.5, highly unlikely but maybe, 5 feet 10.....hello goodmorning......he is 174 - 176 range...my guess is 175.
dmeyer said on 9/Aug/07
can look under 5'7 to 5'7.5 in departed can look easy 5'9 in italian job this guy is 5'7.5 to 5'7.75 barefeet
D. Ray Morton said on 9/Aug/07
He ain't 5'9" barefoot. I'd bet the farm on that.
leonari said on 9/Aug/07
Viper: Thank you! Finally somebody who sees the same thing as I do. But he still is a height enigma if you ask me...sometimes I look at him and I am convinced he is barely 5'8" on a good day...on other ocasions he matches guys who are in the 5'9" area...mhhhh. Only one logic answer: LIFTS. Not al the time but in many movies and premieres he wears at least 1 inch lifts in his shoes and I say more like 1.5 inch Lifts.
Viper said on 8/Aug/07
Wahlberg looks well below average in just about everything.
t said on 7/Aug/07
Why do you guys want to assume people are shorter than they really are? The average height in the US is 5'9-10. Therefore, this is AVERAGE... not an opinion, a fact. Just assume Wahlberg is 5'9 (average) and be done with it.
ShortMarky said on 3/Aug/07
I agree with viper, He looks 5'7 to me and everything i see him in especially SHOOTER he looks the same height has his co star which is 5'7 thats probably why they got him becuase he was shorter and didn't want to make mark look like a little guy, but a 5'7 guy can look big if they have alot of muscle becuase then there upper body looks like an average guys upper body but just with little stubby legs which the camera always cuts off. But in boogie nights he looks really small to but ill give it to him for being in such good shape..but he should stay smaller like in boogie nights becuase now it looks like hes trying to make up for his height with all his muscles or he might just be getting older that too. But a good peice of evidence to show his height is that he his dating a girl that is 5'9 and i saw a picture of them on the beach and she looked 2 inches taller than mark

His brother Donnie should be nearly 5'10. He is taller than Mark by about two inches. Search "mark Wahlberg and Donnie Wahlberg" in google images and the first pic confirms this, shoewear included.

In the second picture in particular with Glenn he looks...taller than usual. But I think 5'8 is spot on. He just doesn't have the build of a guy over that.
aboutmark said on 31/Jul/07
im 5'7 and i'll admit that i wear lifts all the time and they make me appear 5'9. You can't notice them at all i have 3 pears and they look exactly like normal shoes and actually some of the styles they have look better than normal shoes and they are extrememly comfortable i prefer to wear them to normal shoes. So thats why i don't believe anyone can judge height from pictures its just going completely on how they appear and not fact. Thats why i personly believe mark wahlberg is 5'7 and he probably wears lifts everywhere he goes plus he is always wearing those big boots now you could have some serious lifts in those up to 3 inches. just watch boogie nights and how short he looks even with those 70's platform shoes. you have to get some facts going you just can't judge by meeting the guy, if poeple guessed my height they would think i was 5'9.5 but little do they know i shrink to 5'7 without my shoes haha!
aboutmark said on 31/Jul/07
yea i just got through watching boogie nights and he definitely looks 5'7 or maybe 5'6, lifts can do alot don't forget that

nejv tha man said on 28/Jul/07
glenn/rob, wouldn't it be better to give an explanation beside the picture how it comes that he's 2 inches taller than glenn?
glenn said on 24/Jul/07
rachelle-my # is on the glenn page right now for someone else right now.take the #.before i have rob erase it.mark was here all last week.how am i supposed to tell you if i cant call you? id tell you to email me now,but my yahoo isnt working.
Rachelle said on 23/Jul/07
Hmm... I am starting to re-think Mark's height. My previous statment about him being 5'9.25 would be his max height, which may be strethcing it a bit. He is definetly between 5'8 - 5'9. Glenn, do you know that the day we ran into other that Mark was at that hotel, but had checked out in the morning. If you ever know when he is going to be in NYC again, let me know!
glenn said on 16/Jul/07
i forgot to look actually.i went on looking at a couple of links here and forgot to look at this one.sorry.ill hopefully remember soon.

how much do you see rob....its vince papale with mark and btw i saw glenn's pic with vince papale and i think mark is comparatively taller with vince papale and he will definitely be wearing flat shoes here.
Hey glenn, what do you think of this pic and did you check out the link i was talking about with you.
Bombay Rocker said on 16/Jul/07
I saw shooter again and i will honestly say he looks between 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 9, no more, no less. He is wearing big boots(heeled ones) but he doesnt looks short although he looks a bit too muscly....but a very good movie.
bam said on 16/Jul/07
the funny thing is that wahlberg gaining 1-2 inches, (with no indication of lifts) has me baffled,and nearly furious from curiosity,
while Stallone manages to gain 5 inches over his listed height(5-9 to 6-2). Its so mysterious.
sam said on 15/Jul/07
looks taller than glenn in both pics (5'8), could pass for 5'10 though problably a tad shorter in reality.
Bombay Rocker said on 11/Jul/07
No prob bro...anytime.
glenn said on 11/Jul/07
ok.ill let you know.thanks.
Bombay Rocker said on 10/Jul/07
Glenn, check my post here on 1 july 07....i have posted the link there and just pause at 2:03 in the video and you'll see what i am talkin about.
