In any of his brilliant Tolkien offerings, there are loads of extras and Peter can be seen on these extras frequently. Yes, he does look short and it is my opinion that he would have made a better dwarf than a hobbit because of his shape!
I also enjoyed his films 'Heavenly Creatures', 'King Kong' and 'The Lovely Bones'.
I think he just tops 5ft4!

Boy I'm astonished. I thought this guy was much taller.

Didn't Jackson have a 5'5" or 5'6" listing before?...there's no question he looks really short, even next to his actors playing hobbits.

Not surprised to him listed this low. Benedict Cumberbatch towered over him at The Hobbit premiere.

Wood is probably 5'5.25 and Peter is as listed (5'4.75), so they are about a half-inch apart. Wood is closer to the camera in that shot, if you compare both of them to 5'8 Andy Serkis you'll see what I mean.

Looks 1.5-2" shorter than 5'6.5" Elijah Wood:
Though they are listed of the same height at that site. :)

There is a publicity photo where he directs 6'5" Christopher Lee in Lord of the Rings, and barely reaches to his chest. He looks like a real hobbit next to Lee.

yes, I don't believe he is this height, he has been described numerous times as "hobbit size", he looks 5.4 and a half at the most.
