Hm all of this is strange cant see fox taht mutch taller than terry o Quinn but at the same time if you look at photos with Matthew fox and forest Whitaker. You see that they are the same and if one of them is taller then is Matthew fox. He cant be shorter than 187.

I'd consider moving Terry up to 184cm at the very least.
Andrea said on 10/Apr/16
Ok, i won't insist then... But at least you do agree that he was nowhere something like 1.5 inches taller than Terry on the show, right? They looked quite similar in the show... Of course, none of them has ever been close to the 6'2 mark! Do you honestly believe that Mat might turn out to be another Joseph Millson guy?
Editor Rob: maybe when I rewatch a few episodes of Lost and look for the scenes on the sets/flat ground I will come to a conclusion.
Andrea said on 9/Apr/16
Are you 100% sure he'd edge out Josh on a stadiometer battle? I honestly don't know... For some reason, Josh did give me a taller impression on Lost, he certainly looked no less than 6'1 with most of the cast (and many people you met too)... Mat on the other hand can look not much taller than Henry Ian Cusick and more 184 range with people like Dominic Monaghan... I can buy him being a couple of cms taller than Terry but no more... 186ish might be on the money! Is there a chance you will drop him to something like 6'1.25 or you'll keep him at 6'1.5, Rob? I know there's not much difference but he's never been 1.5 inches taller than Terry!!!
Editor Rob: I wouldn't place a big bet on it, but at the moment I'm not sure I would change Fox.
Andrea said on 8/Apr/16
How could Fox still be 6'2? I know Lost is hard show to compare heights but again some people insist Matt is taller than Josh based on the show... Rob, are you 100% sure Matt would be taller than Josh? Again, Terry and Mat didn't look much different on the show, as far as i remember... After all, you had Mat at 6'2 and Terry at 6'1.75 at the beginning... Now, they're 1.5 inches apart!!! I can totally buy Terry being around 184 (by the time of the show), Josh a solid 185-186 and Matthew? Maybe around 186? I can't believe he's ever been 1.5 inches taller than Terry!
Editor Rob: 186 for him is arguable as he may not be much taller than Holloway, at times I can see how they look similar range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Apr/16
I thought Fox could still look near 6ft2
184.3cm (Night) said on 4/Apr/16
My initial guess for Fox back in oct '14 was 6'1.25" and im sticking to it. He is very close in height to Josh. Barely anything in it.

Terry i assumed was listed as a 6 footer, he looked around an inch shorter in some scenes.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Apr/16
Be quiet Andrea. The grown ups are talking

Rob, does O'Quinn's recent confession affect Fox and Holloways listings?
Editor Rob: I think Holloway generally does look his claim, you could argue Quinn as a strong 6ft range, but Fox can look 6ft 1 or 1.5
Andrea said on 1/Apr/16
Rob, shouldn't Terry's big downgrade influence Mat's listing too? :)
Didn't you say that him and Terry didn't look much different in Lost?
I still think that 184 range was very possible for Terry but at least you now realize how crazy his original 6'2 listing was...
Btw, the guy who plays his father, John Terry, had a small part in 24 and he could look near 6'1 with Tony Almeida...
Anyway, 6'1.5 is not that crazy for Mat but that's really the most he could be!!! I still think that Josh gave a taller impression in many scenes on Lost!
Rewatch the famous final scene, when he hugs the other losties... He can look more 184 range with guys like Ian Somerhalder, Josh Holloway, Terry, Evangeline Lilly and Henry Ian Cusick...
Editor Rob: lost was a hard show to compare, unless they went inside to the bunker or other units, but at shots 10 years ago this 6ft range for Terry makes more sense, but you could place him in the strong 6ft zone, by his own definition, at lunchtime the guy would be a bit over the 6ft mark.
Andrea said on 9/Jan/16
He's not a mm over the current listing...
184.3cm (Night) said on 9/Jan/16
@Jolynn

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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jan/16
Matthew Fox: 187-188cm
Josh Holloway: 186-187cm
Terry O'Quinn:185-186cm (peak was about Fox's height)
Jolynn said on 24/Dec/15
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.

Jolynn said on 9/Dec/15
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.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Mar/15
@AlexMahone: Terry is listed 6ft2 but could have lost height and is 6ft1˝ 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.

teej said on 24/Oct/14
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 Celebheights.com. 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!
Click Here
[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!
steven said on 15/Jan/12
at begining of LOST i thought he is 6'1.5-6'2 , after i see him close to the guy josh holloway who say he was like 6'1 which mean he is like 184-185cm and fox does not look over 0.5" edge over josh holloway. which implied 6'1 for fox. seriously not over 186cm max. so let alone 6'2.
P said on 16/Nov/11
I dont know if americans measure height with shoes on.To me, Fox is prolly around 185cm bare-footed. Check it out on LOST where they walked on sand without shoes and he certainly looked 185
LAN Jiao said on 10/Nov/11
fox height hardly argue been lower or higher. legit 6'2
Dominic said on 4/Nov/11
My men of Lost height estimates. Charlie 170cm. Sayid 172cm. Jin 173cm. Boone 176cm. Desmond 178cm. Michael 179cm. Hurley 181cm. Sawyer 186/187cm. Locke and Fox 188cm
LAN Jiao said on 17/Oct/11
in premiere of vantage point he is an inch on forest whitaker who looks 6'1 in the premiere pictures with other co star. matthew fox look solid 6'2. also 6'1.5 listed william hurt is noticeable shorter than fox.
saeed said on 16/Aug/11
i myself am tall... i used to think and be fossy about height. now i know size does not matter that much! looks is very important,as for mr fox. he gets 2 thumbs up for both ht/looks! i wish him luck.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Aug/11
Josh Holloway is listed on most sites at 6ft1.5(187cm) and personally I think that is closer to the truth. 6ft2(188cm) is dead on for Fox.
thebad7 said on 21/Jul/11
Fox looks dead even with Terry O'Quinn, whom I believe to be about 6'2". I think Fox is one of the few who's honest about his height--he has no reason to be insecure about it; 6'2" is tall, to the point of prominently standing out in a crowd, in my opinion. 6'2" flat is correct for him.

tb7
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/May/11
6"2 flat is perfect for Fox...Whitaker looks like he could be a fraction over 6"2 if he stood properly because he was at least an inch taller than 6"1(185cm) Keanu Reeves. As for Josh Holloway, his height is definitely downplayed a bit. He's probably 187cm or minimum 186cm
Lenad is sexy said on 29/Apr/11
Yeah but not by much. I wouldnt rule out 189cm but anything over is overdoing it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/11
Leaned are you implying that Fox may be a little over 6"2?
Lenad is sexy said on 24/Apr/11
looks 0.5-1 inch taller than Holloway. Also the same as Whitaker if not a tad taller. Whitaker doesnt seem over 6'2 to me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Apr/11
O'Quinn is 6"1.75(187cm)...nowhere near 6"3

the person below who said that 6"2 is average should have gone to specsavers
wesley taylor said on 14/Apr/11
Watch Star Trek The Next Generation "The Pegasus", where Terry O'Quinn guest stars as Admiral Pressman. Watch carefully when Stewart, Franks, and O'Quinn are in the same scene. Stewart is 5'10", Franks is 6'4", and O'Quinn is approximately 6'3".

Menace 195cm said on 4/Apr/11
An inch taller than Karl Urban (185cm) so Matthew is probably 188cm, Quite a strong average.
Anything starting from 6'2" is a good height for men i guess. Most young actors nowadays are around 6'2" or so. 6'3" is probably necessary to stand out from the plurality.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Mar/11
I take that back sorry

Fox does look more like 6ff1.5 in that pic...I think Whitaker is 188-189cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Mar/11
Nah he looked a strong 6ft2 next to Whitaker

Average height is 5'9-5'10 6'2 is tall.

There's more evidence that Forest Whitaker could be over 6"2...

He looks exactly as tall as Forest Whitaker: Click Here
Gonzalo said on 17/Nov/10
He looks that tall but he was shorter than M.C. Gainey in lost. And we know Gainey´s height is 1`88. So? So Fox might be shorter than 1´88
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't....as usual. :D

[Editor Rob: see this quote by liz mitchell on craveonline.com: "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" ]


the shredder said on 3/Apr/07
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.
