Ron Perlman's Height is 6ft 0in (183 cm)

American actor best known for roles in films such as Hellboy, Alien Ressurection, Cronos, Enemy at the Gates, Drive, Pacific Rim and The City of Lost Children. On TV he has starred in series such as Sons of Anarchy and Beauty and the Beast. In a Lycos webchat (22/3/02) he commented on his stature, saying: "I'm not short, I'm about 6' 1. I guess I worked with a lot of smaller people, which makes you look big". In a Creation Convention in 1988 he claimed though "I'm six foot two. I think [Linda Hamilton] she's...I don't know how tall she is exactly. I would imagine she's about five-five, five-six. That's why everybody thinks I'm so much bigger than I really am."

Comment on the Height of Ron Perlman

Gerry said on 11/Oct/15
Ive seen a picture recently with the cash of SOA now i was surprised as he looks about 6 foot whereas i always believed he was 6-2 easily. In this same picture Katey Segal looks barely 5-6
Marcus said on 27/Sep/15
Why does it say that Hellboy is nearly 7 feet tall? And actor in the film is only 6'0?
ed said on 28/Aug/15
I dunno, but to me in his movies etc. he always easily looks like 6'1 - 6'2. He just seems huge.
Mighty_- said on 14/Aug/15
He must be around 182-183cm nowadays but he has a terrible posture ( hunched upper back )
I think the 6'1 peak claim isn't out of this world especially with a better posture
Carl B. said on 5/Jul/15
Ron Perlman was at Comicon this weekend in Montreal and believe it or not the guy is 5'10" with shoes on! And Charlie Hunnam is 5'11 MAX. Don't forget that television makes people look bigger!
Sam said on 18/May/15
Rob, would you add Cronos, The Last Supper, Drive and Pacific Rim to his film credits?
Also, you mention he seems like he might have had some height loss, I agree and he's no spring chicken, I think he's maybe 5'11.5" today. It's also possible that he could have peaked a smidge over six foot, around 6'0.25"-6'0.5".

He's about an inch taller than Sigourney Weaver (listed at 5'11 here) in Alien: Resurrection.
Mike said on 17/Apr/15
rob if he's 6'0, then how is charlie hunnam 183cm? he's clearly 2cm taller, i think he's 6'1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/15
Today maybe not...20-30 years ago though
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Feb/15
Rob, is 6ft1 peak possible?
[Editor Rob: not as convinced he'd be that tall.]
alex said on 19/Jan/15
I think both him and hunnam are around six feet,maybe perlman was 185 cm. In His youth
Fog 181 said on 22/Dec/14
5'11- 5'11.5 these days. Shorter than Nicholas Cage in 'Season of the Witch' Premiere photos and shorter than Rob Kazinsky who is 6ft, at 'Pacific Rim' premiere.

Rob, he claimed 6ft2 for himself once again, last year when comparing the height difference between him and Charlie Day. You may want to add that to the top.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Nov/14
Rob, do you think he might have lost height over the years because of action roles?
[Editor Rob: he seems like a guy who might have lost height]
mike said on 22/Oct/14
Maybe 6ft 1 peak Rob?
Deliberate said on 20/Oct/14
End of season 5 ep 6, it shows him look through a peep hole on a door frame and he has to get on his toes to look through it. Then it shows Jemma walk in and she's clearly taller than him (probably in heals). After that I started paying attention and I'm gonna guess 5'9 or so. Plus he slouches like crazy in the later seasons so he looks super short in some shots.
andrew height said on 13/Oct/14
he is a man with a big build but i find hard to believ that he is 185, i would say he is between 178 and 180
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/14
Well, he's still claiming 6ft2...
John said on 24/Sep/14
I walked right past him at the Grove in LA a month back. Shocked that he was about 5'9". I'm 6' on the dot and he was considerably shorter than me. Can't imagine he was ever 6'. That's a lot of shrinking.. he's not 80.
alex said on 22/Sep/14
I m watching season 4 right now, this summer i watched season 1 to 3, honestly I don't remember hunnam taller than him in the first episodes of the first season but i was not keeping an eye to their heights like i do now.
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 21/Sep/14
He is 64 now. I'd say peak height was 6ft 0.5in (184 cm).
Leung said on 12/Sep/14
alex, have a look at episodes from earlier season of SOA. SOA fans will probably have already noticed this, in earlier seasons of SOA Charlie Hunnan is clearly taller than Perlman. Then in later seasons Perlman started wearing thicker biker boots and began looking closer in height with Hunnan. I think there is an inch difference between them, my belief is that Perlman is around 5'11.5" now (close to 6'1" peak years ago), and Hunnan is 6'0.5".
alex said on 12/Sep/14
I think 184/185 too, i kept on watching sons of anarchy ((old Seasons)and he us Always slightly taller than hunnam
Meme said on 11/Sep/14
I met him in person... I'm 5'11", was wearing 3" tall platform shoes and he came up to my shoulders... I call bs in him being taller than 5'9"
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 11/Sep/14
Rob, can you give him 184 peak?
alex said on 17/Aug/14
I think Perlman is a very strong 6 footer, I think he is, or at least was, surely at least 184 cm tall, if not a weak 185 (6'1). Watching "SOA" I noticed he always appears slightly taller than jax (hunnam) who is listed as 6 footer. So I would change Perlman to 184-(6ft 0.75in), same height of harrison ford. My two cents about perlman.
mike said on 20/Jun/14
Rob, this his peak or current height?
Leung said on 9/Jun/14
A peak height and now height would be suitable for Perlman. He was around 6'1" in his prime, and 5'11.5" - 6'0" now.
Mighty Mouse said on 7/Jun/14
I'm 6'2", when I was in LA last year I was standing beside the "red carpet" for the Pacific Rim premiere, I was exited to see Ron Perlman, and got a shock when he walked passed me, he's about 5'8"/5'9", he was WAY shorter than me!
NatWu said on 5/Apr/14
I've seen him in person once at a con, he's not 6'0 now. More like 5'10" max.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Mar/14
His jaw alone is 5 ft 10 :-]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Feb/14
I haven't noticed much variation in stature between Hunnam, Perlman, Coates and Flanagan Rob, out of those four who do you think is the tallest?
[Editor Rob:Charlie has good posture. ..Ron nowadays maybe doesn't stand as well as he could measure. times they all look kinda similar range. ]
Barf said on 28/Feb/14
Always thought he was like 6'2'' or 6'3"
Hare pin said on 25/Feb/14
Based upon some rough measurements from the film Pacific Rim, the gold toed shoe is about a size 13. Whether or not the one the scientist guy is holding is the actual shoe worn, I don't know.
Powerhouse said on 7/Dec/13
6'1.25 peak 6'0.5 now
Bakura said on 6/Oct/13
6'1 peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jul/13
I thought he was at least 6ft2
gsbr said on 13/Jul/13
In Pacific Rim, his character profile puts him at 6'1". Also, he says he's 6'2" in this article when discussing the height difference between him and the 5'6" Charlie Day (who Perlman mentions as being "about 5'2".)

hey Rob,
Do you watch sons of anarchy? In those series he's been described 6'2 and 75 inches on mugshot and charlie hunnam is described as 6'1,I guess what kind of boots they're wearing in those series.
[Editor Rob: I don't watch it]
Brad said on 19/Feb/13
Met him 25 years ago, at least 6' 1" then.
Hew said on 3/Nov/12
He was near enough 6ī1 at his peak but nowhere above 181 cm today.
batjac said on 30/Sep/12
Meet him while filming Aliens 4. He's more like 6foot 2
Michael said on 25/Sep/12
All i wanna know is, how is a 62 year old that built? He's huge.....everytime he's arms are on screen, particularly in sons of anarchy, they take up half the screen. The man must lift some serious weight or is just built that way.
HellBoundPower said on 30/Aug/12
I think he could have possibly have been 6'1" at his peak, but nowadays in his 60s he's probably between 5'11.5" and 6'.
JHC said on 28/Aug/12
Saw him in Toronto back in March 2012...I'm 6'1.25" (186 cm) but he definitely is not. I probably had a solid 2-3 inches on him.

I dont know how big are those heels but she surely towers him. A 6ft guy wouldnt be towered by a 5ft11 woman in heels.
Anonymous said on 17/Jul/07
Wow isnt this guy the one that caracterized Hellboy? Cuz if he is this guy I am shock In the movie of Hellboy they mentioned his height at 6'5", And truly I though he was 6'5" probably because of the shoes he was wearing. But I am now impressed to see his height at 6'0" in here. I dont know why do they overestimated his to much.
Big Show said on 23/Jun/07
On this page are a few pics of Kevin Sorbo and Perlman. If Sorbo is 6'3 as he says he is, than Perlman is struggling with 6' there. Sorbo looks an easy 3 inches taller there.

Gotta admit I'm surprised by this. I used to believe he's a solid 6'2", maybe even more, but after doing my own little quick research, yeah, this seems about right. I just don't get why he typically looks a legit 6'2" most of the time. Must be from working with shorter cast members (Blade 2, for example).
Frenchy said on 5/Apr/07
In enemy at the gates , in the scene he and Jude law are jumping from roof to roof together he's at least 2 inches taller than law. He's at least 6'1'' or jude law is 5'10'' or smaller. But in enemy at the gates Jude taller is taller than near 6' feet Fiennes... weird.
S.J said on 24/Mar/07
I think he is 6,0 and not 6,1 since he was a little bit taller then Waever in Alien Ressurection.
dmeyer said on 20/Dec/06
i met him did look 6 feet or a hair over
Glenn said on 19/Dec/06 and at least one or 2 others on the site saw Bruce at 6-3.this was maybe he had boots on and I misjudged.or Ron has a posture problem.
sam said on 19/Dec/06
Glenn, didn't you see Bruce Campbell years ago as 6'3"? He looks the same size as Perlman in that photo...I wouldn't have guessed it, but is Campbell an occasional lift-wearer? Or is Perlman a sloucher?
Glenn said on 19/Dec/06
Met him in 1990 and 2004.can appear 5-11,6ft as my friends say and others on page agree to.
RICHARD said on 16/Dec/06
Only 6' ????? He looks 6'3 esp. on Hellboy and Desperation. I figure maybe he was wearing lifts on Hellboy but damn 6' is a little low for him. I put him at 6'1 or 6'2.

PS: He looks a lot like Tom Waits.
Lois said on 2/Sep/06
I met him at the Hellboy premiere, and was really shocked that he seemed so slight by comparison to his film/tv prescence. Doesn't he look HUGE on camera? He was certainly in the 6 foot range, but a lot more slim and wiry, not bulky/muscley, more like a runner than a football player. Wonderfully nice guy, by the way! :)
DaniŽl said on 13/Jul/06
Campbell said that he himself is "6'1 with boots on"
Anonymous said on 23/Jun/06
He looks exactly the same height as Bruce Campbell in this picture. Either he's 6ft even, or Campbell is 6' 1".

my friend's sister worked on Hellboy and Ron came to her B-day party. He always looked huge in every movie he's been in, and I was floored when he was pointed out. He's about 5'11, though solidly built. It makes sense when I saw Wesley Snipes(Blade 2). He's seriously about 5'5".
xhamlliku said on 26/Sep/05
6'1" is about right. he always looked big to me.
Mr. X said on 29/Jun/05
You sure about that Wizerd. I seen Alien Resurrection several times and in several scenes Pearlman looks about an inch taller than Weaver, but I always thought that for most of the movie those two were both about the same height.
js77 said on 23/Jun/05
In the magazine "tall" ron's height is listed
as 6'2". Think the "height" experts is hard to fool.

i think a foto next to another person could be
inaccurate. What if that person is using
shoe lifts ?
Wizerd said on 19/May/05
He looks a good 6"3" in Hellboy but then again those were some big shoes he used in that movie!! He is probably 6"2" because in Alien Resurrection hes standing next to Sigourney Weaver who is 6"0" and he does looks taller by two inches!
