Morgan Freeman height is 6ft 2in (188 cm)

A Legit 188 guy in the movie Street Smart.
Donnie said on 14/Apr/16
Freeman is clearly shorter than Gerard Butler in London has fallen, yet Butler is listed as 186?
Matt said on 4/Apr/16
187 cm for God.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Mar/16
Robbins may very well have been a full 6ft5 in his 20's-30's and woken up at 6ft6. But really a barefoot 198cm guy in the evening peak? I don't know about one. That would bring Freeman up to almost 6ft4 which he never looked. Freeman could have been a solid 189cm guy though.
Maximus said on 28/Feb/16
Freeman usually always comes across as tall on film. He was obviously shorter than Tim Robbins in Shawshank but then again I believe Tim is around 6'5" to 6'6" tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jan/16
He still looked 189cm 10 years ago.

Question is could he have been 6ft3 at some point? said on 21/Oct/15
if you look the final scene with donald sutherland face to face,donald is cleary two inches or more tall than freeman its very clear.SO FREEMAN IS NOT 6,2 OR SUTHERLAND WAS IN THIS TIME MORE THAN 6,4 THIS MOVIE IS "OUTBREAK"
Sam said on 16/Oct/15
Not worth enduring Ted 2 to see if there's really an obvious lift shot IMO, LOL. I've seen Freeman when he was probably still full height and he stood out as tall, would be surprised...
dmeyer said on 12/Oct/15
Exept with robbins he defenetly look 6'2-2.5 up to 5-10 yrs back
MrTBlack said on 1/Oct/15

Then he'd 6'1.5" today.

6'2 1/4" for his peak height, and 187 CM today.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Sep/15
Peak 6'2.5 in my opinion, but I'm glad Rob has tweaked to 189 peak now at
least and a current one, which looks more accurate.
Armandy 6'1.5 said on 1/Sep/15
Peak 188 and half or 6'2.25
Rey said on 20/Aug/15
Christopher Reeve had an inch or so over him in "Street Smart."
Ron said on 15/Jul/15
I could be wrong on this, but I just saw "Ted 2" and at the end he appeared to be wearing some HUGE badly disguised lifts. Check out his shoes in the court-house, the mid-section appears to be nearly vertical and the light reflects it, his trousers do nothing to disguise it as they hang about 3 inches above his foot as if he's taller than the trousers expected and he even walks a little bit as if he's got some big uncomfortable lifts in.
Possibly the worst example if lift wearing I've ever seen.
frank said on 11/Jul/15
rob, morgan probably didn't lost anything, not even 1 cm before 70s, don't you agree? in the last few years seems that he lost 1-2 cm.
[Editor Rob: he seemed to retain a 6ft 2 up to near 70 yes. Genetics and diet maybe meant his bone density was still very good.
Sam said on 6/Jul/15
Yep, a very tall guy, I met and talked to him in the late 90s. Freeman look 6'2.25"-6'2.75" at that time, commanding presence and voice in person even though I'm a solid 2 inches taller (don't recall but I believe I was fully grown by that point).
gaga said on 2/Jul/15
Rob, when did you list his peak height? Last time I checked he only had his current height listed here.
[Editor Rob: a few months back]
Dejavu said on 22/Jun/15
He was the same height as ben affleck in sums of all fear. Both a bit over 6'2
jade said on 5/Jun/15
I love Morgan Freeman. I now know what the expression"tall drink of water"means.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/15
The way I see it

Batman Begins: 189cm
Dark Knight: 188cm
Dark Knight Rises: 187cm
Dmeyer said on 13/May/15
Tanks Rob this Guy realy looked 189 up to not too long ago
Rey said on 26/Apr/15
In the past has appeared taller than "6'2"" Craig Ferguson, Ben Affleck and Jim Carrey. Interesting....

look at this with Ben Affleck
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Mar/15
6ft3 out of bed peak...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/15
I think at peak he'd have been similar to Idris Elba.
Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" said on 26/Feb/15
I know that this will seem like a foolish question, but how was he only a few inches taller than Steve Carrell in Evan Almighty?
Lorne said on 25/Feb/15
Finally! This is perfect, a fraction over 6ft2 peak, a fraction under today.

I must say, however, you took so long doing it he may be 6ft1.5 by now! ;)

Seriously, though, thanks, you continue improving and expanding the site, although this one was a bit overdue.
Judd said on 13/Jan/15
For sure 6'1.75" for him today is the best guess!
Not sure about his peak height...he may have been 6'2.5"...
cole said on 13/Jan/15
@Editor Rob: Is there any reason why his picture shows up in the tumbnail but not on the actual page? It's the same with Bryan Cranston and a few others. A good current and peak height listing this.
[Editor Rob: I did add a photo for him just now, some I'd done the thumb but forgot the main picture to upload.]
trav said on 10/Jan/15
Damn he lost nearly like a half an inch
Sam said on 9/Jan/15
Yeah, I met the man in the 1990s and he looked in the 6'2"-6'3" zone, had excellent posture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/15
The full 6ft2 is a better fit. I won't argue with his current height. He does look that
Njp said on 6/Jan/15
Looks about 2.5 to 3 inches taller than Christian Bale
Mike said on 30/Dec/14
No less than this, and probably more likely to be a full 6ft 2.5.
6ft 2.25-2.5in 189 peak
6ft 1.5-1.75in 187 today
Mike said on 16/Dec/14
If he's not 6ft 2 today, he's pretty close to it. 6ft 1.5-1.75in today and 6ft 2.5in peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/14
Comparisons w/h Connery are illogical because A) they're aren't photos of the two veteran actors together and B) Freeman is a good 7 years younger than Connery.

Rob, could Freeman be rounding down?
[Editor Rob: he might have been a little over 6ft 2, I know at times he can pass for a 189 in the 80's and 90's]
Mike said on 9/Dec/14
No photo for him Rob?
[Editor Rob: I will later this month]
pedriscovery said on 8/Dec/14
If you looks the film outbreak,have a scene with donald sutherland face to face,and sutherland hace almost two inches on freeman look this movie the diference of heigth is notable
Mike said on 6/Dec/14
In fact he actually gives a taller impression than 6ft 2 Sean Connery! He really needs an upgrade to a full 6ft 2.5 thats what he generally looked. He can even give 6ft 3 impressions. He looked the same height as 6ft 2.5 Affleck also.
cole said on 23/Nov/14
He should have a 6'2.25 or 6'2.5 peak height, he still looks 6'2 or at worst 6'1.75 today.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Nov/14
Rob can you add a photo and The Dark Knight Trilogy, Million Dollar Baby, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Bruce Almighty, and Deep Impact?

6 ft? Looks pretty near 6'2" in comparison still.

Yeah Rob can you add a photo, add The Dark Knight trilogy and upgrade him to 6ft 2.5 peak?
Arch Stanton said on 2/Nov/14
Rob can you add a photo?

Watch The Dark Night Rises people. He looked 6'3" next to Bale, about an inch shorter than how Neeson looks in Begins and clearly taller than Michael Caine in comparison. Honestly I generally get a weak 6'3 impression of him in his films. But I don't think he looked it next to Tim Robbins who had him by about 3 inches.

Judd said on 13/Oct/14
Yeah, I watched a couple of his movies, recently and then I admitt he was taller than a flat 6'2" one.
Maybe he brushed 6'2.5" when he was young and today I wouldn't put him below 6'1.75"...
Although he got older he didn't lose a big amount...he's still a tall guy and great actor, too.

Danimal says on 1/Oct/14
At almost 80 years old, he's still taller than 6'2" (yes, he's 6'2") Craig Ferguson.

ferguson was 2 inches shorter than the rock a couple of years ago..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Oct/14
He did look around 6ft3 in Se7en and Shawshank Redemption.

"Peak height was 6ft 2.5in (189cm)"

In his 20s-30s possibly 190cm even. Remember he was late to the party in terms of success
mike said on 1/Oct/14
Rob, when will you give Morgan 189 peak?
Danimal said on 1/Oct/14
At almost 80 years old, he's still taller than 6'2" (yes, he's 6'2") Craig Ferguson.
Danimal said on 1/Oct/14
There should really be a before and after height listing for Morgan. He's almost 80 years old (most men will have lost 2" by then) and he still looks like a strong 6'2" + guy (taller than Ben Affleck). In his younger days, was easily over 6'3". I used to read 6'3.5" and 6'4" for him when he was young. Legit tall man who has aged very well, but has lost height nonetheless.
mike said on 25/Sep/14
There's actually a chance he could've dipped to a flat 6ft 2 at night he could look sometimes a full 3 inches shorter than legit 6ft 5 actors, like Tim Robbins other times he could look 6ft 3 (or really close to it). so this listening is pretty accurate maybe a slight upgrade to 189 he's similar to Sean Connery both 6ft 2-2.5 peak.
judd said on 13/Sep/14
i read an article which said he was 6'2 and he always looked a full 6'2ish...
Dejavu said on 20/Aug/14
Looks the same height as 6'2.5 Ben Affleck in Sums of All Fears. 189cm peak is a possibility.
mike said on 19/Aug/14
Morgan Freeman's height 6ft 1.5in (187 cm)
Peak height was 6ft 2.25in (189 cm)

nothing under 188 in his prime.
James B said on 16/Aug/14
Taller than Clancy brown
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 17/Jul/14
I'd say he is 6'2 nowadays ( 188 cm ), maybe still 189 if he postures up.
Probably a strong 189 and maybe even 190cm in his prime.
He still looks considerably taller than Bale in the Batman series, and slightly taller than Michael Caine.
berta said on 15/Jul/14
i cant se morgan freeman be just 3 cm taller than a guy like harrison ford 30 years ago more lika 5 cm difference
Arch Stanton said on 13/Jul/14
Honestly, even now he still gives a 6 ft 3 impression in films. I find it hard to believe he was low as 6 ft 2 pealk. He doesn't look much shorter than Paul Bettany in Transcendence.
177cmGuy said on 9/Jul/14
Morgan Freeman was probably a strong 6'2 (189cm) at his peak today he is likeley a weak 6'2 (187cm).
cole said on 18/Jun/14
He's held up pretty well. About 6'1.75 today, can still look 6'2 at times, and 6'2.25 in his prime I'd say.
Dmeyer said on 3/Jun/14
Rob to me he looked taller than Affleck and near 4in on pitt nothing under 6'2.25-2.5 peak

6ft 1.25 today
6ft 2 flat peak
d said on 30/Apr/14
rob do you think morgan hasn't lost any height at all?
[Editor Rob: I think a fraction is quite probable, he could have passed for 189 20-25 years ago.]
Banshee said on 3/Apr/14
People who think that all men shrink around 1 inch or more during the course of their life needs some biology classes.
Btw, Nikolaj Coster Waldau ( Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones ), also listed here at 6'1.5'', is undoubtedly towered by Freeman in all possible pictures by at least 5 cm.
Something is wrong here or Freeman is above 192 cm tall.
James B said on 20/Mar/14
6'2.5 peak
6'1.5 today
Hypado said on 15/Mar/14
188 looks right
James B said on 15/Mar/14
If bale is 6ft then I think in batman begins he looked 6'2-6'3 but then his hairstyle is very thick
pedriscovery said on 22/Jan/14
berta said on 17/Jan/14
there is no way he was just 188 at peak even now in last vegas he looks 188-189. And peak was probably weak 190 ore stron 189. The dude looks 189 most of the time even now if he would stand well. If he was 188 at peak he was a very strong one and have grew to 188,6 at the age of 76 :P hahaa
Arch Stanton said on 2/Jan/14
Robbins did look about 3 inches taller in Shawshank though and if you also consider his 6'4.5" claim... Poitier was a leggy dude with a smallish torso in his prime, he had the legs of a 6'4"-6'5" guy I think but I'm not sure he looked taller than Freeman.
Arch Stanton said on 2/Jan/14
Rob the thing is I find it hard to believe he'd have been shorter at peak than Sidney Poitier. I've seen about five of Poitier's 60s films and honestly I don't think he'd have been taller than Freeman. Freeman to me looked more likely to be over the 6'2" mark than Poitier.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/14
With 189cm Sidney Poitier: Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/14
Here's a front shot Click Here That's not even close to 3 inches surely?
[Editor Rob: he's managed to maintain height well...maybe Robbins is approaching an age were his posture isn't as good as it used to be.

This is Morgan with a guy who is supposed to have had an early (i.e. not long after waking) measurement of 6ft 2 3/8ths.]
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/14
Rob do you think he looks a bit taller than this here Click Here ?
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/14
If you consider that guys like Ryan Reynolds have the same height listing on here I think you're undercutting his peak height slightly Rob. I think at peak he'd never had dropped under this mark and I think 6'2.5" would be a fair listing.. I don't think he's lost much at all today even at 76, he honestly looked near 6'3" next to Kline in Last Vegas.
Lenad is sexy said on 1/Jan/14
188cm min peak
Arch Stanton said on 31/Dec/13
Actually looks 6 ft 3 in Last Vegas. Has easily 2 inches on Kevin Kline.

Yeah 6'2.25 peak and 6'2 now he barely lost anything.
Lenad is sexy said on 15/Dec/13
187cm now 189cm peak. Or maybe 190cm peak and 188cm now.
dmeyer said on 12/Dec/13
Rob He was defenetly over 6'2 peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/13
"Peak height was 6ft 2.5in (189cm)"

188cm peak seems a little low. In Street Smarts (his best performance, IMO) he looked only 1in under Steve Reeves. He was 51 at that point. Could he have been 6ft3?
pedriscovery said on 17/Nov/13
in "disclosure"he have a scene face to face with donald sutherland an looks cleary shorter than donald two inches.
jtm said on 5/Nov/13
he definitely looked more than 2 inches shorter than robbins to me.
Sam said on 4/Nov/13
Almost 15 years ago, that's the impression Freeman gave me in person as well, very strong 6'2", near 6'3".
brotha said on 2/Nov/13
I saw morgan about six years ago at a hotel I worked in. I'm 5'11.5" and I promis was 6'2.5" minimum. He was wearing freaking loafers too. Probably 6'3" peak at least.
Lenad is sexy said on 19/Oct/13
I don't think hes over 6'2 now. I doubt under it when younger though. He was still a good inch taller than Jim Carrey back in 2003
Emil said on 3/Oct/13
Nah, Freeman didn't look more than 2 inches shorter than Robbins to me
jtm said on 1/Oct/13
3 inches shorter than tim robbins in the shawshank redemption. a lot of people on robbins page are now claiming he is 6'4-6'4.5. that would mean freeman was 6'1 range at his prime but i think robbins is 6'5 and freeman's peak height was 6'2 flat.

6'2 seems right.
Lo sgozzatore said on 27/Aug/13
So you agree that Morgan is not looking over 184-185 in this pic (not saying he really is this low)?
[Editor Rob: Morgan at times can look anywhere in 6ft 1-2 range last few years]
Lo sgozzatore said on 26/Aug/13
Rob, what about this pic? Click Here
Freeman barely reaches Kobe's eyelevel. Once again Kobe looks taller than his 6'4.75 measurement, but then again he doesnt look taller than Michael Jordan, who could be slightly shorter than 6'5...
[Editor Rob: he can appear taller in a lot of photos, 6ft 5.5 is what he can pull off looking at times. It helps that he doesn't have a low eyelevel and if he raises it slightly his eyelevel would be no more than 4 inches.]
pedriscovery said on 23/Aug/13
in a movie "estallido" wiht donald shuterland an dustin hoffman morgan is 2" more short than donald sutherland if sutherland is 6"4 morgan is 6"2
cole said on 22/Aug/13
Maybe a current height vs peak height is in order for Mr. Freeman these days, Rob? He is 76 after all! Personally I'd say 6'2.25 (189 cm) peak, and 6'1.75 (187 cm) today.
DaveC said on 14/Aug/13
Always looked about 6'3" or 6'4" to me. Taller than Clint in both films
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jul/13
No way did this guy have 3in on Dan Aykroyd. 1-1.5in maybe.

I think 6"2" on the dot now. Has more height over Christian Bale than Michael Caine. 6"1.75"/187cm at worst today.

189cm peak for definite. Looked 6"3" in Seven with Brad Pitt
Larc 74in said on 8/Jul/13
He's lucky, he lost barely nothing at 76y.
He still looks about 6'2 today, although a weak 6'2, at peak he was for sure a strong one.
Connor 184cm said on 5/Jul/13
189cm peak for morgan rob?
[Editor Rob: it's not improbable ]
Connor 184cm said on 1/Jul/13
Suprisingly morgan does still look like a genuine 6ft 2 man how has he not lost height yet rob? hes 76 years old i think.
[Editor Rob: I think now he has lost a bit, he could have been a fraction over 6ft 2 and now a fraction under it.]
Mr. R said on 28/Jun/13
This is right. I saw him at the Oblivion premiere.
cole said on 27/Jun/13
A genuine 189 cm man at peak, at 76 he's likely to have dropped 1 or 2 cm. With Craig Ferguson he looked roughly the same height, and in Lucky Number Slevin, he was wearing some kind of sandals, and was still a bit shorter than 189 cm barefoot Josh Hartnett. 187 cm today, 6'1.75.
Sam said on 26/Jun/13
I saw him in the late 1990s and Freeman had impeccable posture and NYC side walk advantage but managed to look close to 6'3" range to my 6'5" eyes (don't know if I was fully-grown then but pretty close). I think 6'2.5" would be a fair peak estimate for him. Bizarrely, I saw Paul Rudd (who was in the play Freeman and I were coming out of, The Last Night at Ballyhoo) moments later on the street and he looked, with a side walk disadvantage (closer to the road), around 5'8".
Silent d said on 23/Jun/13
He is still a tall man at his age. 187cm.
Man said on 18/Jun/13
I am not sure what video Danimal was watching, but Craig Ferguson is not taller than Freeman.
Terry said on 17/Jun/13
Very tall guy and top actor to boot.
Lorne said on 16/Jun/13
He was 6ft2.25 peak, no way a flat 6'2, dm is onto something. And I believe Sean Connery is the oldest living person w/out a peak, and ironically he was WITOUT a doubt 6ft2.25 peak, whereas there is a chance Freeman could have hit 6'2 flat at night.
Balrog said on 11/Jun/13
Damon wears lifts.

If you take a look at all the photos, you can see that Damon is at least 3 inches shorter than the aged Freeman and Eastwood. Both of those gentlemen still clear six feet, though not by a huge margin.

looks at most 3 inches shorter than tim robbins and I think 2.5 is more like it. still 6'2ish
Daniele said on 20/Apr/13
He looks the same of Quentin Tarantino. Here he is with Kobe (Click Here). Assuming Kobe is 6'4.75, and considering that Morgan Freeman barely reaches Kobe eyelevel (notice that Kobe isn't perfectly straight in this photo), I'd say he's 185cm at the best hypotesis. According to me 6'2 is way too generous. Maybe it's the photo, I dunno...

0.5 in taller than 6'2.5 Affleck 3 in taller than 6 ft bale this Guy looks 188-189cm at 70 plus do n less than 6'1.75-2in today and aleast 189cm peak
That's because Ben Affleck is more like 6'2 flats, Bale is indeed 6'0", IMO Freeman was 190cm tall peak and 188cm tall nowadays.
Lorne! said on 7/Apr/13
6ft2.25 peak , around 189 cm. still looked 6ft2 in his 60's, no way he didn't lose height! Around 189cm at peak, bet on it

I always thought he looked 6 ft 3. 6 ft 2 sounds right as well. By the way is 5 ft 8 tall or short in england.
Connor 183cm said on 6/Jan/13
Morgan freeman is still 6ft 2 he doesnt look like hes lost height at all christian bale looks 6ft as he claims could drop to 5ft 11.75 in the evening. Why i think people believe christian is shorter than micheal caine who is 6ft 1 is because maybe he wears high platform shoes that make him look taller perhaps that can fool a lot of people what do you think rob?

Morgan Freeman is 6'2 and nothing more. He has a good 2 inches on Christisn Bale (6'0) and about an inch on legit 6'1 Jim Carrey.
James said on 10/Oct/12
Doubt this guy was shorter than 189cm peak.
Larc-186.7-188.6cm said on 9/Oct/12
Is 186-187 possible for him today, Rob? I saw The Dark Knight Rises, and he looked 3-4cm over 183 Bale.
Silent d said on 4/Oct/12
Ajax said on 28/Sep/12
All though he did say 6'2", I think he could have been 6'2.5" when he was younger since sometimes when people are a height plus a half inch, they downplay the half inch.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/12
Still looks 6ft2 in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight with Christian Bale. Haven't seen The Dark Knight Rises yet. In 2012 it wouldn't be suprising of he's maybe 187cm. But I wouldn't go lower than that.

6ft2.5(189cm) peak, 6ft1.75(187cm)
zero said on 10/Sep/12
Bale is 6'0'' or close to it and almost same height that Michael Caine who is looking under 6'1'' these days.

Rob why haven't you added peak height for Freeman. He's 75 and he was a legit 6'2'' maybe more at his peak but right now looks under 6'2''.

Also some people must remember that in The Dark Knight Rises Bale was wearing a cane in some scenes next to Freeman.
Justin said on 30/Aug/12
In The Dark Knight Rises, Christian Bale and Michael Caine, who are both said to be 6'2" were the same height. Freeman was noticeably taller than both of them. He looked 6'4 in that film.
FACE said on 18/Aug/12
6'2.5 Peak
6'1 Now
Fakhrul Islam said on 2/Aug/12
hollywood and all other film industries add 2 to 2 1/2 inches off height to all actors and actresses.
Rick said on 23/Jul/12
In recent photos during 'rises' red carpet events, he looks to be shorter than 6'2" jonathan nolan (chris nolan's younger brother. Morgan seems to be a strong 6'1" these days. 186cm also sounds right.
SIlent d said on 25/Jan/12
I doubt he's 6 foot now. 187cm.
steven said on 16/Jan/12
no matter how tall at peak. freeman is 6'0 nowadays.
supes78 said on 12/Jan/12
Freeman maybe 6ft 2 now but in his prime, I'd say he was 6ft. 2.5in easy. If you've seen his early film work, he was very tall looking.
steven said on 11/Jan/12
peak freeman look every bite tallish 6'1-6'2. nowadays he look as short as 5'11.5 to 6'0 max.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 6/Jan/12
Pitt is a weak 5" 11, Freeman was likely a strong 6" 2 at peak, perhaps 189 cm. I think Freeman has lost 2 cm at 74 though and now stands 6" 1.5 (1.87 m).
maio said on 6/Jan/12
I'm sure he was a little over six-feet-two...I think 6 ft 2.25 in/189 cm during his youth.
Today i think he's in the 186-187 cm range...that's my guess, however 6 ft 1.5 in/187 it's my choice!
Shaun said on 28/Dec/11
I think he had about 4 inches on Brad Pitt in Seven...
Shaun said on 28/Dec/11
Freeman in his 20s in my opinion was somewhere near 190, surely at least 6'2.5". I think he hovering just under 6'2" today but still close to it.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 16/Dec/11

187cm. "Probably one of the greatest actors ever."

Can't argue there.

Morgan is NOT under 6'2.5, 6'2" maybe but that is the MINIMUM. These 6'1 under listings are crazzzy.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 24/Nov/11
6ft 1.5 now, 6ft 2.25 peak.
franklinaliasTHEDOCTOR said on 20/Nov/11

LAN JIAO said on 18/Nov/11
i think morgan is 185-186cm stand straight up now and 6'0 stand alone with hunch. peak 6'2 he does't lost much height at 70plus of age now.
Silent d said on 11/Nov/11
He is an anomily. He is still freakishly tall. Jordan always looked short to me compared to other basketball players. He only looked 6 foot in the eighties. He probably grew a lot since then. They wear basketball shoes which gives them nearly two inch advantage. At least morgan freeman should be 187cm. Lan jiao no way he is 6'0.75. He is taller than craig ferguson and much taller than christian bale who i think is 182cm. If he has lost height. How tall was he in his prime? I heard that when you reach your seventies, you lose close to two inches. I want what he is having. He is ageless. 188cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/11
He's a hard guy to pin down. Can look anywhere from 6ft1 to 6ft3
LAN Jiao said on 2/Nov/11
DeJAVU, I never implied freeman 6'0 or lower. he can be at least 6'0.5 stand straight or taller he is 6'0.75 now i believe , but not a chance his over 185cm because next to both 194-195cm kobe and michael jordan he look a full 4in shorter. he lost a tad bit of posture nowadays and could easily look only 6'0 or under in picture don tell me you think his still 6'2 easily? impossible. unless kobe and jordan are really 6'6 i can shut..
Silent D said on 25/Oct/11
Never doubted it. He is six foot two. Craig ferguson is not 188cm as he claims. He's shorter than 188cm david letterman. Morgan freeman is an awesome actor and a freak of nature. He is still really tall today as he was 30 years ago. Clint eastwood and david letterman really age well height wise.
truthman said on 17/Oct/11
He looks even taller than 6'2 with decent posture and camera advantage

If freeman is 6'2 i did see 6'6.5 for kobe bryant.

Omg, 6ft3 at peak james would make tim robbins at least a solid 6ft6! Stop upgrading everyone, please!

Ferguson might be 186 cm. Freeman is 187 cm today.

Sure he is 6'3 , thats why he says 6'2 and looks 6'1.5 lol .
James said on 25/Sep/11
not sure about 6'3 (191cm) peak?
Larc 6 ft 1.75 in said on 25/Sep/11
Strangely 2 years ago, he still looked taller than Craig Ferguson (listed at 6'1.5) on his Late Show, maybe Ferguson is just 6'1.

188-189 peak
187 now
LAN Jiao said on 22/Sep/11
at peak he does look 6ft2. but i think he is 6ft1 today, can look under 6ft without straight posture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Sep/11
6"3(191cm) at his peak.
James said on 12/Sep/11
i think theres a very good chance he was a shade over 6'2 in his 20's.
lan jiao said on 7/Sep/11
what i knew i saw few picture 6ft4.75 kobe bryant with freeman looks 4inch under kobe. maybe 6ft1 flat today. 6ft1.75-2 prime days?
James said on 6/Sep/11
he didn't look under 6'2 next too tim robbins recently.
the shredder said on 31/Aug/11
Rob , do you think 6'1.5 is possible ? He looked same height or a hair taller then 6'1 Costner in Robin Hood .
[Editor Rob: today he might be dipping under 6ft 2, but I think 90's he always looked 6ft 2]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 27/Aug/11
187 now, strong 188 at peak! no more!

He still looks at least 187cm even today at 74y, he was for sure 189cm at his peak, don't know how but black people seems to lose less height with age.

The average man by 80 lose 2" in height. He's 100% lost height seeing he is in his mid 70's. 6'2" today and 6'3.5-6'4" peak.

i think it's dafe to say he lost some height since he is 74 years old, but still a good 6 foot 2. probably 6 foot 3 when he was younger
Sam said on 10/Aug/11
Will, was Freeman's dwarf twin nice? I've seen Freeman in person and you saw somebody else.
Will said on 9/Aug/11
I happened to meet Freeman in 2005, I was 14 at the time and stood at 6'4 and Freeman was a good foot and a half shorter than I was so I would put his height at about 5'1
James said on 1/Aug/11
had 4.5 on 5'10 brad pitt in the 90's
thebad7 said on 1/Aug/11
My favorite role of his is Eddie "Scrap Iron" Dupris from MILLION DOLLAR BABY. I'm very glad he's been working with another legend in Clint Eastwood. As a young man, I think Freeman was an easy 6'3"--or 6'2 1/2" at the bare minimum. Today, I think he still hits 6'2" for most of the day. I saw him recently in pictures taken alongside Eastwood and Poitier. Poitier and Freeman both look about 6'2", and Eastwood looks about 6'1". Today, I think Freeman is 6'2".

Sam said on 28/Jul/11
I did see him in person in 90s and he did look pretty tall. Had impeccable posture and sidewalk advantage that gave him a 6'3"ish impression but he probably was a strong 6'2".
James said on 27/Jul/11
was shorter than clint eastwood in Unforgiven who was 6'3 or 6'3.5 at the time of that film.

maybe somewhere between 6'2-6'3 in his 20's and 30's?
James said on 25/Jul/11
6'2 (188cm) today
6'2.75 (190cm) peak
Sam said on 19/Jul/11
Rob, do you think he could have been over 6'2" at his peak? I suspect at one time he may have brushed 6'3" in the morning.
[Editor Rob: it's possible he was 6ft 2.5 range yes, maybe he had been measured about 6ft 2 when he said his claim and hasn't lost that much height.]
Mario said on 18/Jul/11
Could he have been 6 ft 3 when he was younger, and that the 6ft2 of 2008 was his current height at that time? Tim Robbin himself said he was about 6 ft 3.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 29/Jun/11
ok! he's 6ft2! but SERIOUSLY talking, in invictus where do you see ten cms difference between him and matt damon(admitting that damon is really 178 because in my opinion he could easily be 175)! in that movie, freeman is max 6 cms taller than him and also in photos of both! that would make morgan freeman max 6ft! which is the actual height he looked in comparison with 194 tim robbins (i mean in the shawshank redemption)... bah
James said on 27/Jun/11
Morgan Freeman is no less than 188cm today cause he was only 2.5 or so inches shorter than tim robbins recently.

Rob look at getty images freeman apears 1-2 cm taller than 189cm Affleck when afleck stand as tall as possible h� looks about as tall as freeman ewplain me how CAN Morgan be only 188 cm Even if affleck is only 188-85 Morgan steel looks 189cm i met Clint 7 years ago h� was still about 6 ft 1 Morgan looks 2 un over him un million dollar baby , 190 peak 189 for last 20 years and 6 ft 2 now h� looks 3 in or over taller than Willis

James said on 11/Jun/11
Bale looks more 5'11ish too me.

I agree though in the batman films he looks a legit 6'2. Probably close too 6'3 in his 20's.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/11
Not over 6ft2 today...but at peak he was for sure on his way to the 6ft3 mark.

I think 190cm peak or bare minimum 189cm
rafa said on 14/May/11
A bit over 6'2" peak , like 6'2.3" or 6'2.4". I think he looks about 6'1.5" these days. Whats your opnion Rob?
Andrea [ITA] said on 7/May/11
In shawshank redemption he looks minimum 8-9 cms shorter than tim robbins... So if robbins was 195 in that movie, he was no more than 186-187 at that time!
Robert said on 6/May/11
he looked noticeably taller than around 1,83 Christian Bale... he was definetely 1,90 in his prime, gotta be 1,88-1,89 now. Liam Neeson looked an inch taller and he is 1,93

Yeah Freemans tall but he still looked shorter than robbins.

Today 187cm is a possibibility

6ft2(188cm) today

Still a legitimately tall man
James said on 22/Mar/11
With robbins looks 4 inches shorter like 184cm. In the Shawshank Redemption as well he looked not over 6'2 with robbins. With Carrey looks nothing over 188cm.
Klaus said on 3/Mar/11
He certainly was 1,90 or 6'3 peak when young because in the movie Bruce Almighty he is 66 years-old and is bigger than 1,87/1,88 Jim Carrey. Today, at age 74 Morgan is a strong 6'2.

At his peak,before any of us fisrt saw him say in the 60s-would have been 191cm out of bed,189cm at the 90s 190cm>188cm at night...these days 187cm in the morning>185cm at night.
James said on 15/Feb/11
Andrea your forgetting that in the recent pic freeman is 187 or 188cm at best so that is what 6'1.75 looks next to a 6'4.5 guy since robbins is probably still around 194cm.

In the Shawshank Reeeman was around 189cm and robbins a solid 194cm.

i give him a peak 6'2''.75 maybe 6'3'' he towered the 6 footer Christian Bale in The Dark Knight
A 2/2.5" difference is not towering, that is ridiculous. He is just noticerably taller, towering is when some1 is 5 inches taller than u.

I don't want to say hes not around 188, but in comparison with robbins he looks so short and i don't think that a 188 guy would look that way. Sorry for my english... But i would have sworn, by watching his movies, that he was just a bit taller than 180. For example in the film seven he looks just 5 cms taller than brad pitt who's like 178-179... Btw could you help me Find the height of an italian star?
Gus said on 16/Jan/11
Yer but Andrea,your picking one film out of Morgans 30 odd,id agree in that film he looks about 6"1.25 range,but on the whole he looks about 6"2.25 range...

6'2" is right for him.
ANDREA [ITA] said on 13/Jan/11
come guys. he's never been more than 6'1. You are crazy to say he's like 1.88-1.90! -.-
he's at least 10-12 cms shorter than 1.95 max Tim Robbins!
Try to find a picture where he doesn't look that short in comparison with him...

6"2.75 when he was younger 6"0.75 now,about 188cm in 90s and most of 00s up and till about 2005 where he went from 187-186 and now 185
James said on 10/Jan/11
nah i think 6'3 or a hair less when younger. he was NEVER 6'4.
5\'7.37 said on 10/Jan/11
He can look near 6'3 nowadays when standing dead straight, maybe he was 6'3.5 at his peak, most people can't say it since he got famous when he was already kinda old. My guess is that Tim Robbins is 6'5 and Morgan is 6'2.5 but can look 6'1 since he slouches a lot, btw, Clint could have been 6'4 when younger, but due to his age an extremely bad posture he can look near 6'1 nowadays too.
Master of Rolls said on 9/Jan/11
claim how much shrinking he gets now but still u gota admit hes still tall for an old guy
James said on 6/Jan/11
I agree today there is a very good chance morgan is 6'1.75. (187cm) now in early 70's. In 20's 6'2.75 (190cm).

however last decade i think he was 6'2 (188cm).

6'2.5 easily at 25
brotha said on 31/Oct/10
I posted a few years back I met him face to face at a San Diego Hilton. He was 6'2.5" easily. Hollywood uses many tricks, and many star wear lifts at public events to appear larger. That would explain other guys looking tall next to Freeman, at least logically speaking.
dmeyer said on 25/Sep/07
i geuss black men loose less height since freeman lost nothing at 70 and willis travolta at early 50 lost noticable height
ras said on 23/Aug/07
Man! In those pics with Forest Whitaker he looks about 2 inches taller than Forest, and I even think Whitaker is 6 ft 2.5. so Morgan could be 6 ft 4 really, or he likes using boots a lot. It also is weird to see he hasn't shrunk at all.
Ball-a-Hallic said on 7/Aug/07
how tall is tom robbins from shawshank he was alot taller than freeman who seems 6'2... then robbins looked 6'5 but idk is freeman 6'2 or 6'3

When I saw 'Bruce Almighty' I thought Carey was 6-2 and Freeman 6-3. But whatever they are, I saw about an inch difference
dmeyer said on 16/Jul/07
rob how do you explain that he lost no height at 70 years old when some people like willis and travolta already lost 1 to 2 cm in early 50s

[Editor Rob: he'll have lost a few mm, but it appears he is at the lower end of the loss scale, whereas Clint is at the severe end with kyphosis and who knows what else with his discs.]

Wow. He does look very tall next to Whitaker. He grew taller in old age? Maybe he'll share his secrets, but I think he'd rather keep them for himself.
