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 says on 20/Mar/14
6'2.5 peak
6'1.5 today
Hypado says on 15/Mar/14
188 looks right
James B says 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 says on 22/Jan/14
IN A FINAL SCENE IN THE FILM "OUTBREAK" DONALD SUTHERLAND IS CLEARY MORE TALL THAN MORGAN 4 OR 5 CM
berta says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 1/Jan/14
With 189cm Sidney Poitier: Click Here
Arch Stanton says 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 says on 1/Jan/14
Rob do you think he looks a bit taller than this here Click Here ?
Arch Stanton says 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 says on 1/Jan/14
188cm min peak
Arch Stanton says on 31/Dec/13
Actually looks 6 ft 3 in Last Vegas. Has easily 2 inches on Kevin Kline.
avi says on 30/Dec/13
Yeah 6'2.25 peak and 6'2 now he barely lost anything.
Lenad is sexy says on 15/Dec/13
187cm now 189cm peak. Or maybe 190cm peak and 188cm now.
Lorne says on 13/Dec/13
Come on, Rob, when are we gonna updat this listing? He was clearly a bit over 6'2 at peak, and he's a little less, now. I say 6ft2.25 peak, 6ft1.75 now is a good shout. But the man is a living legend, his listing should be updated!
dmeyer says on 12/Dec/13
Rob He was defenetly over 6'2 peak

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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?
Seahawksfan says on 24/Nov/13
I've met him recently and we looked identical, and I'm not a full 6'2" yet as I'm 186-187 CM like Jim Carrey is, and I edged him out in one photo with us appearing to be the same height. He's about 187 CM.
pedriscovery says 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 says on 5/Nov/13
he definitely looked more than 2 inches shorter than robbins to me.
Sam says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 3/Oct/13
Nah, Freeman didn't look more than 2 inches shorter than Robbins to me
jtm says 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.

agree with Lorne
Lorne says on 22/Sep/13
Morgan Freemans height is 6ft1.75/187cm. Peak height was 6ft2.25in/189cm
Rusty says on 5/Sep/13
I think a legit 6'2.5" is good for his peak but he is looking more a weak 6'2" these days.
Seahawksfan says on 2/Sep/13
6'2 is correct. He's taller than Will Smith which shows that Will Smith is not 6'2.
Anon says on 30/Aug/13
6'2 seems right.
Lo sgozzatore says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 14/Aug/13
Always looked about 6'3" or 6'4" to me. Taller than Clint in both films
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says 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 says 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 says on 5/Jul/13
189cm peak for morgan rob?
[Editor Rob: it's not improbable ]
Connor 184cm says 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 says on 28/Jun/13
This is right. I saw him at the Oblivion premiere.
cole says 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 says 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 says on 23/Jun/13
He is still a tall man at his age. 187cm.
Man says on 18/Jun/13
I am not sure what video Danimal was watching, but Craig Ferguson is not taller than Freeman.
Terry says on 17/Jun/13
Very tall guy and top actor to boot.
Lorne says 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 says on 11/Jun/13
Damon wears lifts.
Sam says on 10/Jun/13
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.

Lo sgozzatore says on 9/Jun/13
Well, i'm seeing a couple inches at best in those photos and there's a high possibility Matt Damon is not even 5'10:

Lo sgozzatore says on 8/Jun/13
Rob, i do believe this listing is pretty accurate. But could you explain why he looks just a bit taller than Matt Damon? You can find the pics on Google...
[Editor Rob: from the invictus days, he can look 3-4 inches taller I think.]
Jax says on 6/Jun/13
well he had a good inch on jim carrey...so 6'2 seems right since carrey is 6'1 flat
Emil says on 4/Jun/13
He doesnt look more than 6'1 these days but at peak he was at least 6'2 maybe even 6'3
Moedingo says on 14/May/13
He's taller than 6'2" at least 6'4"
SolidSnake says on 29/Apr/13
Has he really not lost height yet? Almost 76yo without a peak height listing, is he the oldest living person on the site with this distinction Rob?
Dmeyer says on 28/Apr/13
Rob i insist morgan was over 6 ft 2 peak as he looked 1cm taller than ben aflleck and 8cm taller than 183cm Ble and That at 70s also aleast 9cm on Pitt , now h might 6'1.75-6'2 but peak 6'2.5
Lenad is sexy says on 26/Apr/13
looks at most 3 inches shorter than tim robbins and I think 2.5 is more like it. still 6'2ish
Daniele says 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...
vtec says on 12/Apr/13
taller than 6'2"+ RG3 in recent pics
lenad is sexy says on 12/Apr/13
Probably not over 6'2 anymore
Balrog says on 10/Apr/13
6'2.25'' peak height
Now 6'1.5''
space balls says on 8/Apr/13
the guy still looks 6'2'' in his mid-seventies! so therefore his peak height could very well be close to 6'3'' or a full 6'3''
Ras says on 7/Apr/13
ice says on 28/Oct/12
peak 190 cm . Now 188 cm
------------
I agree

Dmeyer says on 12/Nov/12
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! says 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
Jake says on 3/Mar/13
@Vecrotus

5 ft 8 is on the short side of average in England
Vecrotus says on 11/Feb/13
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 says 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?
Anonymous says on 28/Dec/12
6 ft 2

Morgan Freeman is 6ft 1.5in- 6ft 1.75in, peaked at 6ft 2.25in.
The Exorcist says on 12/Dec/12
No less than 6'2".
Silent d says on 5/Dec/12
187cm.
Arch Stanton says on 4/Dec/12
Peak yeah 6'2.5" I think looks right. 4 inches taller than Brad Pitt in Se7en.
James says on 19/Nov/12
Well demyer next 6'2.5-6'3 Clint Eastwood in the 90s and 6'4 liam neeson he looked very close too 6'3.

I guess his hair can make him look taller though..... That and neesons posture makes him look 6'3
Dmeyer says on 12/Nov/12
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

peak 190 cm . Now 188 cm
mcfan says on 20/Oct/12
Morgan Freeman was 6'2.5. He underestimates himself.
Aragorn 5\'11 says on 19/Oct/12
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 says on 10/Oct/12
Doubt this guy was shorter than 189cm peak.
Larc-186.7-188.6cm says 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 says on 4/Oct/12
187cm.
Ajax says 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 says 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 says 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.
maio says on 6/Sep/12
Peak: 6 ft 2.25 in/189 cm
Today: legit 6 ft 1.5 in/187 cm
Justin says 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 says on 18/Aug/12
6'2.5 Peak
6'1 Now
Fakhrul Islam says 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 says 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 says on 25/Jan/12
I doubt he's 6 foot now. 187cm.
