Comment on the Height of Matthew Fox

He's not a mm over the current listing...

He used to be listed at 6 foot 2 but got downgraded. There is barely anything in it with Josh when you look at decent pics of them both. He is still listed 2 cm taller than Josh here.

Josh claims 6'1 and gets that listing because he looks it, thats how things work around here.

Matthew Fox: 187-188cm
Josh Holloway: 186-187cm
Terry O'Quinn:185-186cm (peak was about Fox's height)

I can't believe this hasn't been changed to Fox's real height of 6 ft 2. Here's another photo example of him standing next to Holloway, Fox always looks taller when they're standing on even ground.

Fox is definitely 6 ft 2, I know a few people who've met him and they all confirmed his height, some even thought he looked 6 ft 4 in person, so anyone downgrading him on here has never met the man and their word shouldn't be taken seriously. His height needs to be changed on this post. Here's a photo of him standing next to 6 ft 5 Tyler Perry and he only looks a few inches shorter, as opposed to Ed Burns who looks quite a bit shorter than Fox and Perry here and claims to be 6 ft 1.

@AlexMahone: Terry is listed 6ft2 but could have lost height and is 6ft1½ today?

I think a weak 6ft2 for Fox is perfect. He edges out Holloway for the most part.
AlexMahone said on 26/Oct/14
Well, what a downgrader crowd exist here...Holloway is taller than Fox? I don't think so. There are many lucky people here (if I said before on this board) who from a wrong photo (or a movie/TV series) can judge precisely somebody height. I can't. I can make a mistake...yeah...but I cant't downgrade Fox, because he's marginally taller than Holloway and taller than John Terry who played Fox's father int the Lost. If Terry is 187cm (6'1.5) than Fox at least a weak 6'2.

I actually think Josh Holloway is also taller than Matthew Fox. But he's listed as 185cm on celeb heights whereas Matthew Fox is listed as 187 cm. I have started watching lost again. And ive noticed Josh Holloway is taller, dont forget he slouches a lot always looking down to people. From pics and scenes ive seen Josh Holloway looks taller by 2cm. However Mathew Fox looks taller in a lot to, but in these pics and scenes Josh Holloway is slouching more. I believe Josh Holloway should be 187cm and Matthew Fox should be 185.5/186cm. They are both very similar heights, and it is difficult to distinguish who's taller. But this is just my opinion :)
Andrea said on 13/Oct/14
Finally, Rob... It took a lot of time to downgrade him! Did he stop paying you? I really think he's 6'1.5, i mean in Lost he never looked a solid 6'2 guy and i actually thought Josh Holloway was taller!
[Editor Rob: I watched the final episode of Lost, that was enough!!!

no, I enjoyed that show, but from all available for him, it is probably reasonable to say he isn't a big 6ft 2.]
184.3cm said on 12/Oct/14
Im watching Lost just now and he never looks like a big 188-189cm guy. Someone that height is borderline very tall while Matthew looks tall but just normal. I guessed 186cm. 6'1.25.
dom said on 3/Oct/14
lo sgoz: You can´t get a good gauge of a 6´2 guy comparing him to a 5´7 guy. Monaghan could be wearing lifts in that photo aswell.
176,2Tunman said on 10/Jul/14
Josh Holloway is strong 6'1,doesn't dip under the mark and could even be 6'1.25-1.5 he actually looks taller than Matthew but I think he rarely has good posture.6'2 could be rounding up maybe 6'1.5 suits him better.Same for O'quinn.
MD said on 12/Feb/14
@Natasha: See you sweetie. Good luck.
Natasha said on 9/Feb/14
@MD: And who are you? I wasn't really asking a question by the way. I was pointing out that 0.5-0.25 inch is not really noticeable so when someone goes "He's not 6'2" he's 6'1.75"!" I just find it quite hilarious. Fox is a legit 6'2" anyways. I don't really care what you have to say either. Bye
Balrog said on 6/Feb/14
I think Holloway 6'1'' - 6'1.25'' and Fox 6'1.5''
MD said on 6/Feb/14
Natasha, I seem to have to explain this to everyone that asks such a ridiculous question, but the name of this site is literally If you're not interested in the most accurate measurement, then why are you here?
Natasha said on 4/Feb/14
Whats up with downgrading someone by 0.25 or 0.50 inch anyway. These dumb arguments I see like "no he isn't 6'2"!! He is 6'1.75"!!!" That's just pointless!! Seriously whats up with that? Fox is a legit 6'2" end of story.
Hannah said on 27/Jan/14
Stop downgrading him! He's 6'2". Anyone who says otherwise is jealous or a really bad judge of height.
Sarah said on 4/Jan/14
Weak 6'2". Looks pretty tall on lost, almost the same height as Holloway
phamus said on 31/Dec/13
I know Matt and he is 6'2" tall same hgt as me and a real nice guy. Wish him the best.
Lenad is sexy said on 22/Dec/13
he can look 189cm at times. 190cm is pushing it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Oct/13
I think standing tall Fox can be 188cm. It's more a case of Josh Holloway being a strong 6ft1 guy.
Remember he looked at least 6ft2 in Vantage Point.
Balrog said on 17/Jul/13
Lo sgozzatore, maybe Fox has bad posture and Holloway doesn't because he was a model but in LOST, Fox never looked shorter than Holloway. Holloway is a solid 6'1'' man could buy 186 cm for him too and Fox looks around the same range 185 - 187 cm. I agree 6'2'' is a bit taller for him.
Lo sgozzatore said on 14/Jul/13
Monaghan struggles to look near 5'7 in lost if Holloway is just 6'1. Gimme a photo where Matthew Fox is a big 6'2. I doubt they exist...
cole said on 13/Jul/13
But it's kind of weird you know.. If Dominic Monaghan is really 5'7, with Fox and Holloway he often reaches around their eyeline, sometimes a bit under. That doesn't really make them taller than 6'0.5 - 6'1 range. Maybe Monaghan is wearing boots at times, plus slouching from Fox and Holloway?

Like here for example: Click Here

Weird. Generally I think Fox and Holloway, give or take a cm, look as tall as listed.
cole said on 13/Jul/13
If not a flat 6'2, then darn close. He's at least 187 cm.
Steven said on 13/Jul/13
All people where saying he is smaller than 6'2 are stupid or jealous ! He is definitely 6'2 !!!!
Lo sgozzatore said on 22/Jun/13
MMM, Dom. You say trolling, right?
Click Here
Click Here
Considering Rob did meet Dominic Monaghan and that that guy is not over 5'7, the one who's trolling is you if you say that's a legit 6'2 :)
I think anyone would agree that he doesnt look over 183-184 in those pics
Dom said on 21/Jun/13
Lo sgoz, do you just go around trolling LOST actors? Fox still looks 6'2 and was never shorter than Josh Holloway in his life...
Lo sgozzatore said on 20/Jun/13
Rob, since you downgraded Terry O'Quinn, maybe it's time to finally downgrade this guy too? Never looks 6'2, just look at him with Dominic Monaghan, that you met! He looks 184 tops. He doesnt look taller than Terry O'Quinn and gives a shorter impression than Josh Holloway! Even 6'1.5 seems too high in my opinion
Yaspaa said on 1/Jun/13
It's too hard to judge in Lost, the ground is too uneven, but I've never seen Holloway seem to edge him out, it's always the other way round.
Lenad is sexy said on 20/Apr/13
I don't think he is anymore than 6'2. Only looks marginally taller than josh holloway
Lo sgozzatore said on 9/Dec/12
Rob, who do you think is taller? Fox or Holloway?
[Editor Rob: I think fox is likely a weak 6ft 2, I think he may be a little taller, but one says 6ft 1 the other 6ft 2]
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 8/Dec/12
Not a chance of him being taller than Josh Holloway.
In Lost they looked around the same, I think they're both 186cm, but Holloway gives a taller impression than this guy.
Dmeyer said on 4/Dec/12
If you think hé might drop to 6'1.5 then list him 6'1.75
Truthman said on 21/Nov/12
Rob, what is his weight now? He looks horribly skinny.
[Editor Rob: maybe 160 range]
Lo sgozzatore said on 12/Nov/12
Rob, you always say that but you never change... Anyway, with weak 6'2 you mean 6'1.5 or 6'1.75?
[Editor Rob: 6ft 1.5 is possible he drops to that.]
Lo sgozzatore said on 9/Nov/12
Rob, you think he could be 186-187? He never looked particularly tall on lost and if you think that a lance reddick claims 6'2 and looks very tall... Well, its hard to believe they're the same! Josh holloway looked taller than him in most of the scenes! Maybe Holloway 186-187 and Fox 186?
[Editor Rob: yeah matthew could be what a weak six two was ]
Lo sgozzatore said on 14/Oct/12
Rob, maybe it is worth to list Matthew at 6'1.75. What do you think?
VillaNoleva said on 5/Oct/12
Been on sets with Josh Holloway and Terry O'Quinn.
I'm exactly 6'1.25" and most people think I'm 6'2.5" because they lie about their own height.
I thought Josh Holloway was 6'1-0.25".
I would say Terry is 6' 0.75" at most, and likely 6" 0.5"
Both extremely nice guys from my limited exposure btw.
Mathew said on 18/Aug/12
Maybe giving him 6'1.75" makes sense.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 10/Aug/12
Rob, that's how a 6'2 looks next to a 5'7 guy? You think Monaghan could be 5'9 range? Don't say that's just the pic, on the web it's full of pics of them and i can't see 18 cms!

[Editor Rob: matthew is likely a weak 6ft 2]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 2/Aug/12
Rampage, you think Fox is a full 6'2? In lost he clearly looked shorter than McGainey and we know that McGainey is a legit 6'2, cause Rob met him!

Matthew Fox 188cm
Terry O'Quinn 187cm
Josh Holloway 186cm
ANDREA[ITA] said on 6/Jun/12
Rob, you really think he's 6'2? In lost (i saw only the first 2 seasons until now) he doesnt look particularly tall, tall for sure but not so tall! A Josh Holloway looks taller to me. For example, when Josh is with Evangeline Lilly he looks way taller than her. When Matthew is with her, he doesnt look that much taller (he should be about a head taller than her, according to the heights)! You think he could 6'1 or 6'1.25 or is that impossible to you? He should be 4 inches taller than Harold Perrineau but he looks just a bit taller in the show. Josh Holloway and him look very close in height and if i had to choose i'd say Josh is a little taller... His height is still a mistery to me...
[Editor Rob: he could be a weak 6ft 2.

harold looks like one of the honest guys who is in the 5ft 10 range and says it.]
Zach said on 11/Feb/12
Rob how do you explain the following shot? Something's not quite right with Matthew Fox being listed as 6'2 and Terry O'Quinn at 6'1.75: Click Here
ANDREA[ITA] said on 22/Jan/12
Lan, you first say 6'2, then max 186. ahahahha you're a f****** troll!
extra said on 7/Oct/07
walked past him on the set yesterday and he is easily 6'2 if not more. in lifts, he looks to be about 6'4 or 6'5.
Daniel Craig said on 24/Sep/07
He kinda looks like that guy from Twin Peaks, Michael Ontkean (Harry in the show). Around the same height, too.
sam said on 16/May/07
Is Elizabeth Mitchell referring to Matthew Fox or her husband when she say's "He's 6'1""?

[Editor Rob: I think husband.]
Franco said on 24/Apr/07
after 3 seasons with Matthew Fox i came to the conclusion he is 6'1.5 and SAWYER is 6'1 imho.

looks tall but 6'2 isn't his height unlike HUGH LAURIE (house) who looks 6'3 even while hunching.

so 6'1.5 Matthew Fox and if he said 6'2 then he definetely isn' usual. :D

[Editor Rob: see this quote by liz mitchell on "I’m in my bare feet most of the time until I met Matthew. Matthew literally I can put my heels on and he’s still a little taller, so that’s nice. He’s a big guy. He’s one of the only actors I’ve ever seen who’s a big guy besides my husband. He’s 6’1”. Of course there’s times I don’t fit at all. A lot of your heavyweights are very small. But then a lot of your guys don’t care. I know when I started with Tim Allen’s just a little bit taller. He couldn’t care less" ]

New fan of Lost ! ... this height seems right ! ... Although I do doubt T.O'Quinn is as tall as Rob list him at !

[Editor Rob: here are shows I watch at the moment:

Lost,24,Heroes,Battlestar Galactica,House,Prison Break,Hustle,Dr Who]
patrick said on 8/Mar/07
I never saw him taller than T. O'Quinn but i can make a mistake;
He definitely looks tall and not less than 6'2 anyway. Very well built and "solid", broad shouldered and naturally muscled.
Antron said on 19/Feb/07
solid 6'2" for sure, never looks under, 189cm if anything else
dmeyer said on 9/Oct/06
he looks it his body is long
Anthony said on 20/May/06
I think Fox is much taller than 6'2. I'd give him a solid 6'3 1/2. I saw him in a magazine with Matthew McCoughnahey, and he had a solid 5 inches on him. When I first saw the picture, I went, "Wow! Fox is TALL!". If McCoughnahey is 5'11-6' like I've read (I have no doubt that he is, he definitely looks it) and Fox is actually 6'2, then there wouldn't be such a difference. However, Fox looked much taller.
sam said on 28/Feb/06
I saw a picture in entertainment weekly with 4 cast members of Lost: Adewale Akkinouye-Agbaje, Fox, Michelle Rodriguez, and Josh Holloway. The picture seems to be taken on rocks on a seashore and that could account for the differences, but Adewale is standing next to Fox and appears nearly 2 inches taller, Michelle looks typically short, and Holloway is last in the picture and looks shorter than either Adewale or Fox. Fox and Adewale are standing pretty close together (Adewale may be standing on a rocky outcrop) and it's possible that either Adewale is taller or Fox is shorter than we thought (probably the earlier).
styleforlife said on 24/Feb/06
yes he is this height he is an inche taller than josh and terry o'quinn. I say 6ft2 is about right
sam said on 24/May/05
Yeah, he looks like the tallest main cast member of Lost, looking about half an inch taller than Terry O'Quinn or Josh Holloway.
