"Russell Crowe's height is 5ft 10⅞in (180.022cm)"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/15
179-180cm is more likely than just 178cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Oct/15
I think you could argue a weak 5ft11 for him.
Jame said on 29/Oct/15
Rob are you think his height 178-179 or else 179-180 in the night
[Editor Rob: I'm not sure he'd be as low as 178cm, I think he probably can hold roughly 179 range at dinner time, and even wakes up over 5ft 11]
Jame said on 29/Oct/15

" He looked a solid 5ft11 in L. A. Confidential and The Insider "

He is now listed @ 6' on Wiki....he is 5'9 in barefeet-5'10 with hair...
FlameBoy said on 26/Jun/15
rob do you have any idea on the height of rugby player sam Bugess ? his listed at 6 ft 5 but looking at pictures of him with Russell he does not seem to really tower above him could somewhere around 6 ft 3 be more Likely ?
[Editor Rob: yes that listing seems quite high, more 6ft 3 than 6ft 5.]
mike said on 20/Jun/15
He seems to be around 5'10 or 5'9 at the very least...with no shoes...meaning close to 5'11 with regular shoes during the day
an anonymous peach said on 14/Jun/15
5' 6" is plain retarded for Crowe, his eye level is probably at 5' 6", but the top of his head clears the 5' 10" mark easily.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jun/15
180cm peak is always a possibility.
bam said on 9/Jun/15
a bit of a chameleon. He looks similar in height to Denzel, and his 5'11.5 claim. Don't you think he looks taller than 5'10.5 here Rob?

Is it possible that he scraped 5ft11 in his 20's and 30's?

He looked a solid 5ft11 in L. A. Confidential and The Insider
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Mar/15
Jackman was not under 188cm
maximus said on 11/Mar/15
Give me a break....5'6"....yea right. He does not come across like Hoffman, pacino, cruise etc because he is around minimum 5'10" where as they are around 5'6" to 5'8". 5'10" is not short considering his shoes bring him up to 5'11 to 6'...its obvious with Cruise, Hoffman, Pacino that they are below average height.

cole said on 16/Feb/15
@Editor Rob: He looks no more than 8 cm shorter than Jackman, which looks the case in other pics as well. Jackman should surely be downgraded to 187 cm before Crowe gets upgraded to 180 cm. That Crowe was near 180 cm in his prime is quite possible though, and by 50 he looks to have lost a small fraction, perhaps similarly to Clooney. Think Jackman was never over a solid 187 cm, and now by mid/late 40's looks more like a strong 186 - flat/weak 187.
bam said on 9/Feb/15
Rob are you sure you see 5'10.5 in the above photo with Jackman? He seems 5'11.5 to me.
[Editor Rob: he can appear around 5ft 11 range in the photo yes.]
Joe said on 27/Jan/15
Russell Crowe might have been 5-11 in his prime, he was really fit in his younger years, but he has gotten fat and out of shape, and has lost height, I think he today he is slightly under 5'10". He was off to a good start in films like Gladiator but now he is fat old man, I think my best guess as to his height is that he is 5'9.5", definitely not 5'11", his Man of Steel co-star Henry Cavill just towers over him, Cavill is listed as 6'1", but is really 6'0.5", even so the difference between him and Crowe is very noticeable. The only legit 5'11" actor in Hollywood is Brad Pitt, and interestingly Pitt never claims to be taller than that.
Matt said on 13/Jan/15
Look at Jackman footwear, Look suspect to me LOL = Lift!
Bryan (Queenslander) said on 12/Jan/15
@Big T

The only other legendary player I've seen who's listed at his honest height is Darren Lockyer (5'10) who always seems to edge out the 5'11 and 6'0 players during interviews
cole said on 10/Jan/15
@Editor Rob: How much of a footwear advantage would Jackman have on Crowe in the pic?
[Editor Rob: he could have 0.3in thicker shoes, but it's hard to tell exactly.]

Crowe could look 5ft11 a lot in the 90's. I wouldn't list him lower than this.
Dejavu said on 27/Nov/14
He looks 5'10
Joe said on 17/Nov/14
Russell Crowe is no way 6 feet tall, I think he may have been 5-11 in his prime, but my most educated guess is that he is 5-10 or slightly less, but I think 5-10 is about right, standing next to Christian Bale who is 6 foot even, Bale seems to be about 2 inches taller. Also Crowe looks much smaller than Hugh Jackman who is 6-2.
Big T said on 13/Nov/14

This is Crowe next to 5'10 1/2" listed Andrew Johns- and Johns is not some obscure ex-player, he is one of the best ever. Again, for whatever reason Crowe looks 6 foot around rugby league players...either they're all overlisted by 2 inches or Crowe is a bit taller than listed here.
Big T said on 13/Nov/14
A lot of people seem to think he's shorter, but I think if anything he's taller. Just look at the size of him next to Joel Madden!

Click Here

Actually, Russell generally looks a lot taller than listed when he is with his South Sydney Rabbitohs players. Look at him next to 6'5" Sam Burgess or 5'8 1/2" Issac Luke. He looks more like 6 foot.

I have met on a premiere here in germany. I made a picture with him. Im searching it because its on a stick. He is exactly the same size as me. Im 5'9 with' barefeet and 5'11 in my Spezial Winter boots. We have both the Same size. No short or tall but really naturally bulky with huge shoulders. Not someone who got often problems.

I walked past him in London a few years back and he was no taller than 5' 10", probably closer to 5' 9".
I'm a measured 6' 0" barefoot and I had three inches on him. Three inches and 110lbs.
Joe said on 6/Nov/14
No actor that is 5-11 in reality will actually say they are 5-11. I think Crow is about 5-9 because he seems to stand at the same height as Joseph Gordon Levitt, who is 5-9. There are many examples of so called 5-11 actors who are really shorter. George Clooney is one such actor, in Batman and Robin he stood roughly at equal height as 5-9 Chris O'Donnell, and he was 36 at the time.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Oct/14
He was doing stunt work in Noah I think aswell.
Judd said on 22/Oct/14
5'10" fits him a lot in my opinion
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Oct/14
Rob, since he's 50 now and he might have sustained injuries from movies like Gladiator and maybe Robin Hood, is it possible he might have lost a bit?

It literally just crossed my mind
[Editor Rob: a small fraction is possible, but to me he looks pretty similar over last 20 years, not enough for me to say 'that guy's lost half an inch easily' or something.]
jtm said on 6/Oct/14
maybe not 5'9 flat but he isn't 5'11.
dom said on 5/Oct/14
The 59 claims are rubbish. At the end of the 2014 NRL Grand Final he stood next to League great, Andrew Johns and had an inch on him. Johns is listed at 511 but I suspect his height has always been inflated by an inch. That puts Crowe at bang on 511.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/14
"Russell Crowe height: 5ft 10.75in (180cm)"

He can generally appear from 5ft10 to 6ft. The full 5ft11 isn't impossible either
Darren510 said on 24/Sep/14
Anything under 5'10 for Crowe is madness
Joe said on 23/Sep/14
Many actors who claim they are 5-11 are usually much shorter. No one says they are 5-11 or 5-11 and a half. He is probably 5-9 or maybe 5-10. Just about all men upgrade their heights, just like most women downgrade their weight. Someone who says there are 6 foot are usually 5-11, 6-1 and they are usually 6 foot even. Its an exaggeration that is considered acceptable, after all its only a inch but in Crowe's case more like two, Crowe is an action star, most action stars are around 6 feet tall or a little higher.
PLB said on 13/Sep/14
In a sense Russell Crowe is the shortest man in films. When someone like Robert Downey is too short for the role he's playing, they just go the obvious tricks: elevator shoes, short co-stars, tricky camera angles, etc.

But when Crowe was cast in the quasi-historical 'Cinderella Man' they had to radically alter the plot and the actual history to accommodate their stumpy little star. The real Braddock was six two and a half. That's a fairly typical height for a heavyweight boxer. But Crowe is probably only about five seven. So they changed the plot around to make it a David versus Goliath story. In the movie Baer is supposed to be a killer giant at least 6'4" and nasty. He was portrayed as the only man big enough to tackle Primo Carnera.

In fact Baer was anything but a villain. He was a clown in the ring and he emphasized his Jewish heritage as a way to show his contempt for the Nazis. He was a prince of a fellow, although not much of a boxer. But the most important fact that the movie got wrong was that he was also 6'2.5".

Braddock and Baer were exactly the same size. Watch the fight films on YouTube - it's hard to tell them apart they are very, very similar in height and weight. Both also have lousy boxing skills. Baer telegraphs everything and lets his guard drop. Braddock throws looping rights like an amateur. Neither man was very skilled but Braddock trained harder. He was also braver. Braddock was hitting Baer with arthritic hands. The two men were a closely matched in height.

But Ron Howard the director was stuck with short Russell Crowe, so he had to turn a real event into a whole other storyline.

I've not - like some here - personally met Russell Crowe. It wouldn't matter much. At 6'4" I'm too tall to estimate the heights of guys who are 5'7" or so. Why do I think he's 5'7"? Because he is almost always the shortest man in the picture. Average American men are about 5'9". If he were really 5'10.5" he would typically be the biggest man in a scene - but he isn't. He's not crazy short like Al Pacino but he's definitely shorter than average. He looks about 5'7" to me, maybe 5'8".
james said on 8/Sep/14
He's 5'10 with shoes on at the most
Dejavu said on 24/Aug/14
Looked 5'10 max next to Henry Cavill.
slimsmith said on 14/Aug/14
A friend of mine audition for Master and Commander as did many of his sailing friends from the Santa Cruz, CA area. They were all in the 6ft range. They were all turned away and told since the star, Crowe, was only around 5'6" they had to find shorter sailors to make him look tall. Even in the scene from that movie where he's teaching the midshipmen(young kids) he's only slightly taller them.
Guy said on 13/Aug/14
@ melambar 178 -179 is not short. It still above the average. Short is 170-173
maximus said on 4/Aug/14
5' 10.5 is hardly short......6ft or more with shoes on. He is neither short or tall. He is slightly above average height. He sure doesn't come across as being short like cruise, Hoffman, pacino etc....his height works well in his films.
spiky said on 23/Jul/14
i expected him to be shorter
Amy said on 19/Jun/14
"he is a shorty at 5"10.5'

179 isn't short, haha.
Mr. Dingus said on 29/May/14
His peak height was probably just about 5'11.5". But he received numerous injuries to his back and cartilage during the filming of Gladiator. Plus he is getting older, so I would say he is closer to 5'10.75"-5'11.25" these days.
Melambar said on 23/May/14
he is a shorty at 5"10.5' or 179 cm. lol

In "American Gangster" he has the built of a 1m78 guy. Nothing above 180cm for sure
Afg said on 16/May/14
I think he is 177,5 as much, he does not look like 182 in noah premier with other people, including emma watson.

To me this Guy is 178.5cm 5'10.25in reaching 182cm in 3.5cm shoes but in regular he is 5'11-11.25 shoes on
(S)aint 6'1 said on 22/Apr/14
I honestly think Russell is taller than everyone says on here. He slouches alot and has a bulky frame. Maybr he has lost some height with his frequent weight fluctuation but I think he is 5'11". 5'10 1/2" is the lowest I can buy.
dejavu said on 14/Apr/14
Russell Crowe is 5'10.
Sam said on 12/Apr/14
I thought about 5'7 after seeing Noah.
GUK said on 1/Apr/14
Look at any pictures from Noah premier he's not much different in height to 5ft 9 Ray Winstone. Either Winstone is taller or Crowe is a weak 5ft 10 at best.
The Walrus said on 30/Mar/14
Saw Noah tonight, he looked like a pretty solid five ten to me, maybe 10.5
jtm said on 29/Mar/14
the pictures with darren aronofsky are good evidnece that he isn't tller than 5'10 since aronofsky isn't taller than 5'11. this also proves renee zellweger isn't taller than 5'3.

He was once told to put his shoes back on!! Because his true height was apparent.Also,did not appear much taller than 5'5" Austin Pendleton "In a Beautiful Mind." The gent' who was informing him of his upcoming award. Crowe 5' 8" and 1/2 flat feet.

He seemed shorter than Connie Nielsen (5'10) in Gladiator...
Realist said on 24/Jan/14
Time for downgrade. Rob 5'9.5 just sounds shortish but is actually quite average and overlooked, its a very easy height to be mistaken with, you can increase by 1/2 to 2 inches on paper.

5'9 and a ahalf

I thought he was at least 6 foot, gives the impression of a taller guy.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/14
He's not under 5'10" c'mon. I'm undecided if he was taller than Guy Pearce in LA Confidential, in some scenes he looked taller, in others Pearce looked taller, they looked pretty similar I think though. Crowe looks 5'10.5-5'11" to me. I could buy a full 5'11 but no more.
Realist said on 6/Dec/13
The usual case of 5'9.5-5'10 claiming to be 5'11.
JJ said on 2/Dec/13
I believe he slouches a lot and that along with his stocky frame make him appear shorter than he really is. I'll give him at least 5'11. His 5'11.5 claim is not a lie or exaggeration in my opinion.
richie said on 24/Nov/13
Crowe has to be a legit 6ft, he had 2 inches on Oliver Reed in Gladiator, who wasn't noted as being short.
Dejavu said on 5/Nov/13
I think he is 5'10 and not over.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Oct/13
His 5ft11.75 claim has to come from somewhere

Rob could he have measured himself in shoes?

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Oct/13

Seen him irl and he is not tall. He is well build stocky build but clearny NOT 6.0 he is at best at very best 179cm could even be shorter whithout shoes. Nice guy but more then 179cm not a chance. At best 179cm.At best.
Dmeyer said on 8/Sep/13
Near 184cm looks aleast 6.5-7cm shorter and CAN look as mush as 9-10cm shorter with bas posture Crowe is 5'10 max
Scott five eleven said on 7/Sep/13
He's probably a bit sensitive about his height implying himself that he's nearly 6'0. That's rubbish he's around 5'10, camera angles and thick soles have helped him in film. Agreed he did look tall in gladiator but camera angles were on his side and plus he had 6'6 german bobybuilder to stand with and still retain his tough image.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Aug/13
Might be 5ft11in/180cm. Wakes at 5ft11.5-11.75in.
He looked 6ft in Gladiators.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Aug/13
Rob, is 180cm possible for Crowe?
jamz said on 25/Aug/13
"Buzz says on 20/Jul/13
He must be taller than this, in Gladiator he had a good 2 inches on 5'11 Oliver Reed and is a similar height to 6'1 Richard Harris. 184 is more likely."

Ludicrous. And Oliver Reed's stature looks to have declined by 2+ inches from his alleged peak. Crowe is certainly no taller than 5'11" and that's a fact.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Aug/13
Nice pic Arch!

Weird, he actually does looks 6ft1 if Bettany is 6ft3.5.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Aug/13
He also looked a strong 6' weak 6'1" next to Paul Bettany in Master and Commander Click Here was about the difference in the film too. Now if Bettany is 6'3.5" and Crowe is only 5'10 and a half he must surely have borrowed footwear from Sly's wardrobe.... To me he looks around 185 in that pic if Bettany is 192cm.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Aug/13
I was watching Gladiator yesterday and they made him look at least 6 ft in it. They altered the angles I think to make the height difference between him and Ralph Moeller seem less.
cole said on 31/Jul/13
I'd peg him as a 5'10 flat guy, might be the weight that makes him drop posture though.
183CM said on 26/Jul/13
He looks taller than 179cm... I mean, Michael Shannon is 1,90 or even more. Look both of them in Man of Steel. He must be taller

i've said it before and i'll say it again. he is no more than 5'10 flat.
Misha said on 30/Jun/13
Russell Crowe was one of the celebs who made me realize that the infinite nuances created by camera angles make it impossible to peg an actor's height
with precision while watching him in a film. Still photos are much better, but still perilously suspect where big egos pose together unless we know everyone's footwear secrets. A classic example is the ludicrous photo on the yacht where Brad Pitt makes Matt Damon and George Clooney take off their shoes. What mystified me at the time was that the "Brad Pitt is five-eleven" contingent saw
nothing suspicious about such a farcically obvious attempt to gain a height
boost. Russell Crowe, like Bruce Willis, is very tricky to judge, but neither
of them strike me after viewing numerous sources as nearly six feet tall. Why did Jerry Bruckheimer tell Crowe years ago at a pool party after he slipped out of his shoes "Put your shoes back on - you're blowing your image!" Would he have said such a thing to a man who was legitimately near 6'0"? Sometimes such anecdotes - if they are true - tell us more than a hundred photos with their
endless variations in perspective, and hence an endless capacity to deceive.
Shade under said on 19/Jun/13
Just wondering Rob what does shade under or share over mean anyways. A cousin of mine told me he was a shade under 5'10. I'm 5'9 1/2 right on the dote. Would I say I'm a shade under or is like 5'9 3/4 a shade under I'm just wondering
[Editor Rob: generally a shade is like a 1/4 inch]
Balrog said on 27/May/13

He describes himself as 5'11.5" I think that if he was lying he would just say 6' so I think 5'11.5" is correct.
logan noll 1996 said on 20/Feb/13
In "Man with the Iron Fists", he looked shorter than Daniel Wu(Poison Dagger) who is listed as being 6 foot - 6 foot 1. For those who don't know what character Daniel Wu was, he was the one with long white hair and long white eyebrows.

Eddie Redmayne is listed as 5'11 here but maybe it's just his hair that makes him look a lot taller than Crowe?

no quick and the dead was made in 1995 he was born in 1974 do the math Al. Which would make him 21 he was not 14 not a little kid
Al said on 23/Nov/12
@Bodwaya you do realize DiCaprio was like 14 years old in that film, he was a little kid.
Johnnyfive said on 2/Nov/12
This guy appears 5 11 or close to six foot in all of his films, however, i think this guy is a frequent lift wearer. I say hes probably 5 9 and a half.

No no no no, forget the "shoed height" or how you call it.
A guy who is 1.79m, isnt 1.82m in shoes. Not every celeb are wearing boots all the time, cause he want to be tall as possible.

1.79m seems really perfect vor him.
bodwaya said on 18/Sep/12
the western movie iam thinking of is quick and the dead with leo and and gene hackman. look it up. He looked an inch taller then leo who claims he 6 foot.
Silent d said on 18/Sep/12
Bodwaya the western movie is 3 10 to yuma and is christian bale in it not dicaprio unless you're talking about body of lies. 179cm. Aussie actors are more honest about their height. I just can't give him 181.5cm.
Len said on 14/Sep/12
He's probably 5'10". But he's buff which makes him look a larger man, especially paired with the lifts he often wears.
bodwaya said on 3/Aug/12
in this western movie he made with leonardo dicaprio who has claimed 6 foot he was an inch taller then him. I think crowe and leo should switch heights. Becuase crowe always looked 6 foot and leo has to be 5 foot 11
jtm said on 25/Jul/12
great actor but no more than 178cm. used to think he was 5'11.
bodwaya said on 16/Jun/12
in this pic he looks equal heihgt to 6 foot denzel. their footwear is the same is equal. he must be downgrading his height Click Here
Dingo said on 10/Jun/12
Just saw him on Dancing With the Stars. Looked 6 foot. Especially next to 175cm Daniel McPherson.
Stiffelio said on 13/Feb/12
@johno: are you kidding? Crowe looked a good 3 inches shorter than Jackman at the Baftas.
johno said on 12/Feb/12
- Only seemed 1.5inches shorter then hugh jackman on the stage, in the BAFTAs 2012 award ceremony.
Tommy said on 10/Feb/12
He said of himself: "I'm 5-11 1/2 and a bit. In Australia, we call that a Collingwood Six-Footer," so he claims even taller than 5'11.5.
Silent d said on 27/Jan/12
O'Neil rob said 5 foot 11 and half above. I think he is 179cm. I doubt he is past 180cm.
O\'Neil said on 25/Jan/12
crow fan there is absolutely no way what you said is true. He has never even claimed more than 5 11 himself, and it's pretty clear the tallest he could possibly be is 5 10, and thats pushing it
SIlent d said on 24/Jan/12
Crowefan 4 are you sure your husband and daughter are 6 foot? I believe you but i just want to be sure. Until then 179cm.
andy said on 15/Oct/07
yeah, he's a fairly big feller. defiantly not short.
anywhere from 179-181cm would seem correct.
Valeri said on 8/Oct/07
yeah sure rane.and im brad pitt. Many times seen him in person ha. at least 5'11? well,check out christian bale next to crowe.Crowe has claimed 6ft and looks it always next to say 6'2-6'3 guys like hugh jackman and freeman.Crowe is 5'10 or maybe under I'd say.A 5'10.5 guy wouldnt look that much shorter than 6ft bale. Looked a bit taller than 5'9 foster.
glenn said on 24/Sep/07
yes,he isnt short.
rane said on 23/Sep/07
If ben foster is truly 5'8", then he had big boots on - russell crowe is at least 5'11" maybe 1/2" more--please dont you have something better to do..i hae seen him in person many times either in barefeet or with running shoes, etc. he is tall
glenn said on 23/Sep/07
danielle,this is a website to discuss various height and fluctuations.if you dont like it,shouldnt you have something else to do? why are you on here then?
danielle said on 23/Sep/07
i can't believe so many people are so concerned w/ a couple of inches. haven't you guys got something better to do? 5'10 or5'11 big deal. we know he's fairly tall, not short not super tall. how's that!
glenn said on 18/Sep/07
believe me i was expecting 5-9.i was shocked at how tall and stocky he was.
Daniel said on 17/Sep/07
Crowe seems 5'11'' to 5'11.5'' barefeet, as Glenn says. Anyway, I don't think he can be less than 5'11'', unless he slouches.
Franco said on 17/Sep/07
he is a weakish 5'10.5 he 178-179cm indeed is his barefoot height, 180+ in shoes, so when he said 5'11.5 he wasnt lying ,that would be his height in shoes lol

he doesnt look short, he does look bulky and his face is like melted cheese, but not short.

178-179cm is correct.
glenn said on 16/Sep/07
that doesnt mean anything outofbench.i met him plenty of times too and usually looked 5-11.5.of course other times 5-10ish.hard to pin encounter is never enough.and depending on what year you saw him,he doesnt pose.since 2006 he has been posing with fans.
OutBenchThis said on 16/Sep/07
When I met him, I found him to be close to 5'10" (5'9.5-5'9.75") but not any bigger so I'd say 177cm would be on the money..I wish now I got a photo with him so I could shut the clowns up that think he is 5'11" ! He'd be 5'11"- 5'11.5" in dress shoes but barefoot 177cm (around 5'9.5"). I will acknowledge that I met him at night so the 177cm would be his 'evening hieght'.
mcfan said on 15/Sep/07
Where do people come off with 5'9 for Crowe? He's just got wide shoulders and is broad. He might be close to 5'11.
OutBenchThis said on 11/Sep/07
Like I've said before 5'9.5" is what i thought he was when I met him here in Australia..the photos with Bale appear to reinforce my stance..he doesn't seem to where large shoes all the time but apparently expects people to buy into the idea that he's close to 6ft..I guess some people do..
dmeyer said on 11/Sep/07
he looks very mush shorter than bale so 5'10 flat max
sam said on 11/Sep/07
I strongly doubt Bale wears lifts. Looks like regular dress shoes to me here:

the shredder said on 11/Sep/07
I think Russell Crowe is 178cm .
dmeyer said on 10/Sep/07
i remember bale lookind a solid 2.5 in under freeman and then looking similar height so bale might wear elevator to look 6'1 plus
antron said on 10/Sep/07
He looks 5'11 in shoes. Never looks short or shortish (which 5'9"ers can, think Adam Sandler, Andy Garcia or Charlie Sheen). Russell is a legit 5'10" flat. Bale is 6ft and a bit (184?cm).
Viper said on 7/Sep/07
Its 5 inches between your eyes to the top of your head on average. Its actually a little over that for me.
KT said on 5/Sep/07
"I did get the impression of 5'9 after seeing Crowe in Gladiator, which he wore sandals throughout"

^ You know, I take back this comment. After watching Gladiator again, I noticed he didn't look 5 inches shorter than Djimon Hounsou. And Hounsou was in sandals, just like Russell. (I think everyone generally agrees Djimon Hounsou is a legit 6'2) A 5 inch difference would make Russell look like an infant, which he didn't.

They say it's 4 inches from the eyes to the top of the head. Based on that, I'd say Russell looked 4 inches shorter. No more than that. 5'10 flat seems more believable. I'd have a hard time believing a 5'9 man would claim 5'11.5, while a 5'10 guy with lifts can claim 6 feet easy.

Bale could be wearing lifts..never know. But Russell is 5'10.
bam said on 4/Sep/07
i was wrong, crowe's 5'11.5 claim is bollocks. He's 5'10.5 with bad posture.
Click Here
Valeri said on 3/Sep/07
crowe looks 3 inches under Bale and exactly same(check the top of the heads) as foster. So he is no more than 5'9,since he was wearing cowboy boots on that premiere,giving him another half an inch,so might be 5'8.5.But Bale is 6ft for sure,since if he was 5'11-5'11.5 then crowe would be 5'7.5-5'8 and he's not. Either that or Crowe is only 2 inches smaller at least as all the pics show. They seem to have similar postures as well.
KT said on 31/Aug/07
Wow, Crowe looks so short next to Bale. Surprising. Definitely looks 5'9 or so. I did get the impression of 5'9 after seeing Crowe in Gladiator, which he wore sandals throughout. And the pics with Ben Foster just puts the nail in the coffin for any guys still selling Crowe as 5'11-6'0.

Because it's not just 1 picture, it's like 10 of them showing him look the same height as Foster and a lot shorter than bale. Maybe as Crowe got older he decided to ditch the lifts.
balegirl said on 30/Aug/07
Wow. It's amazing how adamant people remain even in when presented with the latest evidence (ie 310 to Yuma pics). If RC is indeed 5'11" than Bale is at least 6'1" and we know that is NOT the case as we have seen Bale in the Batman film with Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Laim Neeson all towering over him. Bale is probably 5'11" and Crowe looks easily 2 inches shorter. He's 5'9 MAX.
Melv said on 28/Aug/07
Much less than 5ft 10.5. He's lucky in some photos Bale is helping him by leaning towards him. Unfortunately in other photos they are both standing straight and Bale is a full 3 inches taller than Crowe. There are many who argue Bale is less not more than 6ft. I don't know about that. He looks close enough to exactly 6 ft. The photos with Ben Foster are even more damning of Crowe's claim he is 5ft 11 1/2. There was also a story Crowe took his boots off at a celebrity bash and his agent told him "Put them back on. You are ruining the illusion."
xaoxio said on 28/Aug/07
yes, he looks less than 5'10.5"
Albert said on 27/Aug/07
wow, looks short with Foster. i was sure this guy was around 5"10 but he might be even less.
Melv said on 26/Aug/07
Bale is consistently 6ft all the time.
Check all the pics on Wireimage and Getty. Crowe is 2.5 inches shorter than Bale and wearing thicker footwear.
Click Here

5ft 9 Ben Foster is the exact same height as Crowe.

I always said this guy is 5ft 9 without lifts or cowboy boots. He was an inch taller than Paul Giamatti in Cinderella Man.
glenn said on 24/Aug/07
the thing is bales height is up for debate.i never saw him,but you here 6ft to 6-2 for him.i saw crowe alot.he appeared 5-10 or 5-11.5 depending.he was shockingly tall and wide the first time i saw him.i was expecting 5-9.
Lmeister said on 24/Aug/07
Come on the pics just show that Mr Bale is a legit 6'0'' and Russell is around 5'10''-5'11''. Ben Foster does look 5'8''- 5'9''
Melvin said on 23/Aug/07
Crowe is also wearing thicker footwear. I can't see him being 5ft 10. Never have.

Here's a photo with Christian Bale showing the height difference with Christian Bale at the 3:10 to Yuma premiere:

I'm a little surprised at the difference, but Crowe definitely doesn't look "five eleven and a bit" there.
Also, at the premiere, Ben Foster looks taller, though he is no doubt aided by his proximity to the camera here:

Melv said on 23/Aug/07
Appeared 2.5-3 inches shorter in thick footwear next to Christian Bale this week at a premiere .
Ed said on 17/Aug/07
He looked 5ft9 in Proof of Life. Most recently in the trailer for American Gangster with Denzel Washington, he looks pretty short and stocky as well and he looks to be wearing cowboy boots again.
Lmeister said on 16/Aug/07
JC I think you should quit talking BS. Some people do give a shorter impression. I'm 5'8'' and ppl have said that I look short like around 5'6''. Then again a lot ppl have said that I look 5'10''ish. Russell does give a shorter impression and so does Sly. I used to think that they are around 5'7''- 5'9''. Eventhough they really are around 5'9''- 5'11''.
JC said on 15/Aug/07
Albi im 5'10 and the lowest ive been guessed at 5'11 most of the time..never lower than 5'10 so either your not 5'10 or youre making this story up
glenn said on 15/Aug/07
albi could you repeat this on the sly page? thanks.
Albi said on 15/Aug/07
He doesn't look like a lift wearer to me, from the very few photos I saw. And about people saying he's short... I'm 5'10 and people say I look between 5'6 and 5'8, never taller.
-Once, while I was complaining about something to a 5'9 guy (I was wondering how come he could do it and I couldn't), he said to me "because you're short".
-Another time a 5'4 girl told me I was about 4cm taller than her and definitely shorter then a 5'8 girlfriend of ours.
-Yet another time another 5'6 girl couldn't decide which one of us was taller.

And then they get very, very surprised when we measure up.
So don't believe people's impressions for big guys like Russell. Putting him back at 5'11 would be the very least.
The Horse of FUNK said on 1/Aug/07
I'm a big Crowe fan, and the more I see him the more he appears 5'11". He might be 181cm on a good day, but I seriously doubt he's below the 180cm mark.
Melvin said on 27/Jul/07
Cowboy boots give anywhere from 1.75 inches all the way up to 4. The boots Crowe used to appear in were always of the highest kind between 3-4 inches. He has never looked that tall. Go watch him next to Leo in the Quick and the Dead.
Leung said on 26/Jul/07
I haven't seen either of those movies, my estimate is based on seeing him in person. I know you will probably question the type of footwear he was wearing, but they were just asics. Yes stocky build but not short, 5'11".
18,181 said on 26/Jul/07
melvin.what?? 5'11 person 6'2.5 in boots? I'll have what youre having.coke is good. 3.5 inches? since when do boots give that. hed be 6'1 max in cowboy boots.they actually give more 1.5-1'75 inches. so hes 5'10-5'10.5in,more on the 5'10.5,though he does look quite small in 3:10 to yuma trailer,especially when standing near those if he never touched 6ft with cowboy boots,hes 5'10.
dmeyer said on 26/Jul/07
wath funny is that iamatii gave me an impression os 5'6 when i met him
Melvin said on 26/Jul/07
If he was 5ft 11 he would be 6ft 2.5 in cowboy boots. He has appeared at many events in cowboy boots and never touched six foot. He had cowboy boots on in The Quick and the Dead and he was still well below Leonardo DiCaprio. Dig out a copy of that movie and see for yourself. Even better rent Cinderalla Man and compare him to Giamatti who Glenn has met twice. In the boxing ring there was only an inch between Giamatti and Crowe. Giamatti's posture is the worst in the world.
Leung said on 23/Jul/07
As part owner of rugby league team South Sydney, Crowe is always out and about in support of his team. I have seen him and friends have met him, Crowe is not short, he is about 511.
glenn said on 23/Jul/07
i saw him at lifts in dont know.
Melvin said on 22/Jul/07
I'll never believe he's 5ft 10 let alone 5ft 10.5. This man in cowboy boots can't reach 6ft. He's an inch taller than Paul Giamatti in Cinderella Man. He's much shorter than DiCaprio in The Quick and the Dead. His weight keeps going up too and his posture is not good at all.
17,181 said on 16/Jul/07
this year in american gangster with 6ftmax washington and 6ftmax Bale.I will watch carefully how he changes his height in different movies.I bet in 3:10 to Yuma he'll be as tall as Bale but in gangster 1.5 in shorter than Washington.Didn't Washington say somewhere about his character in a movie that "he was 6'2 but I'm a bit under 6ft?".Crowe isn't 6ft ofcourse,never looked it. Hopefully these upcoming films will help decide.
17,181 said on 5/Jul/07
anywhere from 5'10 to 5'11.5'10.5 seems quite right.
MOF said on 23/Jun/07
5'11.5" is pushing it, although footwear could play part. But 180cm barefeet is the max judging from every single movie he has played a part in...
Leung said on 20/Jun/07
During Master and Commander his weight was apparently 228lb.

The lightest Crowe has been in recent years is 180lb when he got into shape for Cinderella Man, and in that movie he looks drastically smaller than what he is usually. His usual weight does look to be 200 plus. Given that he beefed up for Master and Commander, 228lb does sound perfectly reasonable.
Steevn said on 20/Jun/07
Youre probably right, 230 pounds is an exaggeration. Perhaps it was 230 with all that fansy captains gear on! But my point is: Crowe is a heavily built dude who can look shorter than a slim guy of the same height.
Jason said on 20/Jun/07
Hmmm ... I know what you mean, but I've seen Master and Commander (well, different parts of it) & can't see Crowe being that heavy and I'd be heavier than what you are. I don't know ... IMO maybe 210 at the most? I can't remember exactly, but 230lbs at 5'11'', or 5'10 1/2'' as you say, is one very big dude...
Steevn said on 19/Jun/07
Tom Cruise 203lbs? Thats just plain stupid. With Crowe its not stupid at all, assuming he truly is 179 cm that is. In Gladiator one could guess he was 190+ lbs and lean. In Master and Commander hes not FAT but... fatter.
I believe people see someone in a film sporting a sixpack and swelling biceps and they think "Holy crap, that guy must be 200 pounds of pure muscle!" when in reality he is probably closer to 150 lbs. However if someone has a big back, big legs and a thick waist the scale will go up DRASTICALLY and you look shorter in pictures. Im writing all this crap because i fall into the latter category and I sympathize. Im 183cm/6ft and Ive been told I look like... a square.
Jason said on 19/Jun/07
The same place that said Tom Cruise weighs 203lbs? lol
Steevn said on 18/Jun/07
Just under 180 cm seems right. Another heavyweight who looks shorter because of his build. Read somewhere he weighed 230 lbs (105 kg) when he did "Master and Commander" and he wasnt exactly fat in that one. Ofcourse he looks shorter!
Franco said on 14/Jun/07
Russel Crowe for me is 5'11 (180cm) flat.

maybe just maybe 5'10.5 these days since he's 40 now and all these action
movies might have lost 1 cm of something. always possible.

some people lose in the 30s some in their 60s, pretty random really but always a possibility.

but i think Russel is 180cm max and 179cm being the minimum but i vote 180cm.
Melvin said on 10/Jun/07
Russell Crowe can't be over 5ft 9inches because DiCaprio was considerably taller in The Quick and the Dead. Then watch Cinderella Man and see Crowe never has more than an inch over Paul Giamati who has bad posture at 5ft 8in. Don't fall for Crowe's big footwear....he luvs the boots.
glenn said on 10/Jun/07
he is 511.5.exactly bam.i have friends that claim 5-11 and they are,but they give a 5-9ish appearence.thats why i believe stallone at 5-10.5.
bam said on 9/Jun/07
i have two friends who claim 5'11.5 without shoes, with a very stocky build, similar to Russel crowe. I found their claim laughable. I stood face to face and I (i'm 5'11.5) could not find any discernable height difference. Crowe is a hard one though. In american gangster both him and denzel washington(6ft) star. Maybe we can see if theres a discernable height difference.
rossi said on 18/May/07
I saw him in an Italian restaurant in Berlin while he was relaxing with Ralf Moeller from Gladiator.
When he walked by me i could take a look at his shoes....definetely no lifts!
I'm 5-9,I think when he is walking out of bed in the morning he is a solid 5-11 guy!
K-T said on 10/May/07
Click Here

Him with 5'7.5 Ridley Scott. Not a very good pic. as Ridley has a bad posture here. But Russell seems to be standing straight. I'd say Russell looks 5"10.5 here. Roughly a 3 inch difference. He's definitely not 6 feet.
Anonymous said on 10/May/07
Someone wouldn't say "put your shoes on, you're killing your image" to a guy who's 5'11.5", which was apparently said to Russell Crowe by a director I think it was....
xD said on 5/May/07
Doesn't he use lifts? I think he's about 5'9" (176cm) barefoot. I thought skinny people look tall, my cousin is 5'4" an when I'm sitting down, he looks tall, but when I stand up, he's short.
Russ said on 23/Apr/07
Australian men can be quite tall, Russell Crowe is probably about average, 5'11" doesn't seem so hard to imagine.
Anonymous said on 18/Apr/07
Horse, is there anyone on this site that you don't think needs an upgrade?
Shane said on 15/Apr/07
Lots of guys with a solid build look shorter on film, especially if their legs and waist are not really lean. Michael Biehn & Russell Crowe were both taller in sand on the beach then they appear on film.
Viper said on 14/Apr/07
Crowe strikes me as a guy who's real barefoot height is around 5-8, and looks 5-10-5-11 in lifts. If hes really 5-10, then he might be the shortest looking 5-10 guy Ive ever seen physically. Shorter than Matt Damon even.
LeeM said on 9/Apr/07
Ever since he took over the South Sydney Rabbitohs Rugby League club, hes actually gotten shorter!
The Horse of FUNK said on 29/Mar/07
True, MJ, I believe he's a solid 181cm. I would argue for a full 5'11.5", but that may be pushing it. I'm not sure why he hasn't been upgraded to at least 5'11", as he's probably being sold short by about an inch.
MJ said on 23/Mar/07
I just saw LA Confidential again, and he looked no more than half an inch shorter than six foot David Strathairn.
The Horse of FUNK said on 16/Mar/07
I agree he normally gives the appearance of being shorter in film, but it's mostly due to his stocky build and the fact that he doesn't seem too concerned about his height (slouching). Watch him in Gladiator where he wears mere sandals quite a few times. Can't be any less than 5'10" or 5'10.5".
busybee527 said on 16/Mar/07
Just saw the movie "Proof" on cable. Granted, he was much younger but didn't look very tall in any of the shots.
OutBenchThis said on 16/Mar/07
Maybe he suffers from pacific shrink then? If any aussie 'baller fans know its a common problem for many US imports to Oz..haha. 5'10" in the US 5'9.5" here (AU)..i always thought his ego got bigger when he headed to the states..
glenn said on 15/Mar/07
i stood next to the guy many times he isnt smaller than 5-10.ill settle with 5-10.
OutBenchThis said on 14/Mar/07
Glenn, I stood next to the guy. He was 5'9.5" but he wasn't in the 5'10-5'11" range. Maybe descent shoes with a big heel may give boost his height but (barefoot) i'd say between 5'9.5"
Misha said on 14/Mar/07
I'm feeling a little crowded in on Crowe, and so will assign him 5'10.5 on a tentative basis. I believe you, Glenn - this is the kind of thing you said on Stallone that made me raise his estimate. But I still want to do more research and will report back on my findings. Until then!
glenn said on 12/Mar/07
i dont think 6ft is nonsense.5-11.5 is very is 5-10.its an inch and a half difference.again,i saw him at 6ft,so how is that nonsense? in low cut casuals.
MOF said on 12/Mar/07
It's hard to imagine Crowe being less than 5'9", but I agree that he is not above 5'11". Until some hard facts are presented I say that 5'10" is reasonable for now...
MHouillon said on 12/Mar/07
183cm (6ft)is simply nonsense, 178cm (5'10") is dead on.
glenn said on 11/Mar/07
people underestimate and overestimate.i saw russell at 6ft.therefore he cant be smaller than 5-10.he was couple inches taller than 5-9 ed harris in beautiful mind.
Gotxo said on 11/Mar/07
Yes the film it's very good, is their problem if some people try to see it as an historical film, wich it is not. It's a great epic film.
I wouldn't blame Crowe, he's bound to his role of rough guy. He should appear as imposing, add that to the fact that Hollywood imposes "per se" a height scale system.
To me he really looks in the 5'10" range, give or take a cm.
misha said on 11/Mar/07
Also, for a star of his magnitude, there are very few photographs of Russell Crowe in the company of others whose heights are more or less agreed on - and this "comparison standard" is what we must use for our height estimates because
barefoot photos are so rare. Anyone out there have any photos of Russell Crowe?
I'd be happy to raise my height estimate for this gifted actor, but many scenes
in "Gladiator" make me think he's nowhere near 5'10". I want to try to keep my posts shorter, and will look at his "body indicators" in "Gladiator" later - some might find it interesting. I just read the script all the way through last
night - it is a masterpiece, and what a film Ridley Scott turned that script into! What outstanding performances! Crowe's and everyone else's were beyond praise, with virtuoso "sunset" performaces by Oliver Reed and Richard Harris. This is a writer's prejudice showing, but a great script brings out great performances every time almost without exception.
Gotxo said on 11/Mar/07
Misha your deductions are genial, they recall me some lines of "Monty Python and the holy grial" :P
He prolly rounds up a bit, that's all.
He's 5'10" and advertises himself as 6', so when people meet him the disappoint is bigger than if a more conservative/realistic description was given in the begining. So people goes to the other extreme, from imagining him a giant to depicting him as a midget.
Ed said on 11/Mar/07
Misha, great point!
KT said on 10/Mar/07
Russell Crowe isn't 181 cm. Ridley Scott himself is around 5'7". So to him, 5'10 could easily be mistaken for six feet. Personally, I've never seen Crowe look really tall. My initial thought of him was about 5'9 1/2. But never have I seen him look 5'11.

And I haven't got the slightest clue as to Oscar De la Hoya's height.

Yeah, the 5'8" is far-fetched.
glenn said on 9/Mar/07
i doubt he is 5-8.
MD said on 8/Mar/07
I think that de la Hoya continues to be listed at 5'10" is pretty funny. Just goes to show you how they boost heights in sports.
glenn said on 8/Mar/07
horse,there is a guy that insists oscar is 5-8 on the sly page.please repeat you said one believes me.

I met Russel, believe it or not, in Battery Park in New York city, about 2:00 PM in the afternoon. That was June 2005, the same day (well, it happened at 3:00 AM ) he whacked the hotel front desk clerk with the phone. Russel walked right passed me, I am 5"10, and Russel looked exactley 5'9" and I noticed he had large sole sneaks on. He sat on a park bench and I walked over to talk with him, and he was actually extremely nice. Not hot headed at all. At least at the moment.

Well Oscar de la hoya is 5'10" - 5'10.5". That would put Crow anywhere from 180 - 182cm. I believe Crowe's a legit 181cm.

And to KT, I'm 5'11.5" and virtually everybody thinks I'm 6' - 6'1" as well. But I don't see a 5'10" person being commonly mistaken for 6' or even 6'1".
KT said on 6/Mar/07
To the guy who said he looked short in Gladiator. I find that kinda funny..
In the director's commentary of the DVD, the director (Ridley Scott) said "Russell is 6'1 is he not?" The other guy said "I'm not sure". Then Ridley said "yeah, he's 6 feet".
Now I don't think he's 6 feet at all. He looked at least 3 inches shorter than
Djimon Hounsou (who's 6'2). But for the director of Gladiator to think he's 6'1 does say something. I think 5-10.5 is the right listing
Editor Rob said on 5/Mar/07
I hadn't seen stomper for a decade, but I just watched it recently and beside jackie mackenzie I wouldn't argue much under 5ft 11 if any...he was a relative nobody then and if he's packing heat in his footwear in that flick I'd be shocked...
Interestingly, Oscar de la hoya and Crowe: Click Here

ive met him hes 5'8'' he wore very thick healed shoes
glenn said on 23/Feb/07
i met him way is he 5-9.he is 5-10 minimum.saw him look 6ft once.
Anonymous said on 23/Feb/07
In Gladiator, he looked short compared to everyone else. Unless everyone else in that movie is pushing 6 feet, then I'd say he's 5'9.
MOF said on 15/Feb/07
177cm is 5'9.5" or 5'9.75" and not 5'9".
OutBenchThis said on 3/Feb/07
He is 5'9". His band has toured here (GC, Australia) afew times and he always has a drink at the bar with the guys before the show, which is where I had the chance to speak to him and ask for an autograph. He just had sneakers on but I'm certain, without shoes on the guy is 177cm. Another big headed actor who seems to fool people with his height.

Amazing logic you have there, Anonymous.
Anonymous said on 23/Jan/07
if glen says hes looked 5'10-6' then he's 5'10
Glenn said on 12/Jan/07
He had sneakers and low cut casuals everytime I met him.yes,the moon landings were faked.
Mr Mayfair said on 12/Jan/07
Mr Crowe may look 5.11 but I reckon he would only actually measure that wearing high heels...
Now I thought those Moon landings were done in a studio!
Glenn said on 12/Jan/07
No way 5-8.I saw him look 6ft and he is around the height he claims.
Leung said on 11/Jan/07
He looked 511 when I met him.
The Horse of FUNK said on 10/Jan/07
5'8" for Crowe? Did you know we never landed on the moon, too?
Mr Mayfair said on 10/Jan/07
Well, his agent used to say "he is nearly 6 foot", then it was 5.11 now it's 5.8 which is what I now believe to be the truth.
Editor Rob said on 28/Dec/06
I seen his claim as far back as a 1997 newspaper aswell, to be fair, he has stuck to his guns from then, "I'm 5-11 1/2 and a bit. In Australia, we call that a Collingwood Six-Footer"
The Horse of FUNK said on 23/Dec/06
Heath's a solid 6'1 and I see around 1.5" difference there between Heath and Crowe. At least give Crowe 180 or 181cm.
The Horse of FUNK said on 12/Dec/06
Usually looks 5'11 to me. If Glenn says he's always 5'10 - 6', then 5'11 must be right. Besides, he did look about 181cm in Gladiator. I guess the reasoning behind those who claim he's 5'10 and even the absurd 5'8 is due to the size of the rest of the cast in Gladiator (lots of very big guys). He also has about 4 inches on Meg Ryan who is likely somewhere around 5'7 - 5'8.
Glenn said on 8/Dec/06
Yeah,Ive seen him look 5-10 to 6ft.
Glenn said on 8/Dec/06
Wow.over here he signed up a storm and posed with dealers for a month.concert,events,filming.of course I wasnt there.only saw him when he was a grump.

[Editor Rob: you'd be grumpy too if you had to sail those same old oceans!]
Brad said on 8/Dec/06
5' 10". I seen him, er saw him, and his bad band at the Fox Theatre in Boulder Colorado a few years ago. He wouldn't sign for anybody but he was polite.
dmeyer said on 24/Oct/06
i met giamati he didnt seem as tall as 173 but that was a long time ago for example tom cruise looked 173-4 range probably lifts
Stef said on 12/Oct/06
I met Crowe today in Rome (Ciampino airport).

He signed me an autograph.

He looks 5'10", not more not less. Don't know about lifts though.

Crowe usually looks the stated height, everything from L.A Confidential, Gladiator and Master & Commander...

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.

Other vital statistics like weight, shoe or bra size measurements have been sourced from newspapers, books, resumes or social media.
