Comment on the Height of Martin Freeman

Martin is short for a man and Tall for a Hobbit.

5 ft 6 in is spot on. In Sherlock when he is with Benedict Cumberbatch who is 6 feet tall, he comes up to about mid ear height which is exactly where a 5 ft 6 in person should be on a 6 foot person.

Even bent down, doesn't 5'7" McAvoy have to be at least a full inch taller than Freeman, here?

I saw him doing Richard III and then at the stage door. He's a pretty small guy. I'd say 5'6 is about right. Real nice dude.

I've met him... he's 5 ft 7 inches same as me.

Have met him twice. Once when he was browsing in a store in London. 5'6.5" is pretty much dead on IMO. He looks between 4.5 to 5 inches shorter than Cumberbatch which is about right as Cumberbatch is a strong 5'11", probably 5'11.5"

By the way Rob have you never had chance to get a photo with Martin Freeman or Elijah Wood? You mentioned seeing Wood but never got a photo? Have you ever saw Freeman?
[Editor Rob: elijah never stood for a photo although I seen him standing up close at other times...he just sat like one of those ventriloquist dolls on a stool.]

Anyone know if this guy is a lift wearer? He looks as listed sometimes but other times struggles to look 5'6".

What gets me is how it's widely believed that Tom Cruise is just 5'7", and at the same time people believe Freeman's claim of 5'8". It's clear who is taller. 167cms for Mr Freeman.

Martin Freeman is short but definitely isnt under 5'6'' unless he wears lifts. Iv met him like three times here in Wellington NZ.

OMG, one of them has to be lying there SAK. Rather Cavill is taller than 6'0 or Freeman is tiny.

I think he is around 5'6, he just generally looks small.

Was dwarfed by 6f0.5/184 Henry Cavil @ The Baftas 2013.

I have never met the man, but I have a ggod eye for actor's heights. Honestly, in every shot I have seen of him, I am guesing five feet five, and not a penny taller. Five feet eight is much closer to average height in the western world, and if Martin were that close to average, he would not appear so short.Simple deduction. Besides, my mate of thirty years is five feet eight, so i have a very good template to compare to. Martin is a small fellow, with excellent proportions and a good length of leg, so he reads well on camera. But he is tiny.

omg people. 5'6 or 5'7? Come on mates I think he's below 5'5 - Manny Pacquiao looks even bigger. Not that there's something wrong being small but you people over guesstimate
