How tall is Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy's Height

5ft 9in (175 cm)

British actor best known for roles in movies like Mad Max:Fury Road, Inception, Warrior, Bronson, This Means War, Legend, The Revenant, Locke, Lawless, Star Trek Nemesis and as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, a film in which he wore thick footwear to add to his stature. His agency CV stated he was 5ft 11, but Tom himself was more honest about it.
I appreciate that I'm five-foot-nine and I weigh 185lbs wet-through with bricks in my pockets. - Empire Magazine
I'm not big enough to be the Punisher, I'm 5'9!

@delancey couldn't agree more! 5'8-5'10 is within the average range. Being honest here there are times where I do feel short at 5'9 but most of the time I just feel average, probably because my friends are mostly above average height and are tall. I am just over 5'10 in worn out trainers so I'm content with my stature.

Trust me I've met Mel Gibson on two occasions he is tops 5"8 i'd say 172cm mel is a little taller than tom hardy by all accounts so around 5ft7.5.would be accurate for hardy.
delancey said on 19/Apr/17
Any idea what's going on in this picture Rob?
Looks oddly similar to 172cm listed Jeremy Piven on flat ground, think Hardy may have a shoe advantage as well.
And Piven isn't doing his usual tip toe either.

Editor Rob: could just be not so easily spotted loss of posture.

In places like USA, Canada, UK, Australia 5'8 is a limbo height, it's neither short nor average.
A solid 5'8 guy like Rob isn't short, and I don't consider myself short either at 176 outta bed, 174.5 daytime, 174cm evening.
Weak 5'8 ie when someone drops into the high 5'7 range at night is where I think the "high end of short" starts.
At 5'8 you can "feel" short though, as I said It's right on the precipice, with great posture you can look average enough.
Strange height tbh from personal experience.

5'8 = High end of short
5'9 = Low end of average
Lukas said on 13/Apr/17
@Steve
So 5'9 is not short but 5'8 is short? That 1 in makes a huge difference? Haha
I don't think you will even see a 1inch difference in reality and 5'8 is in the normal range. Average is just above 5'9 +/- 3 inch and a 5'8 guys head would end at the beginning of the nose of a really large Dude of 6'5 and still wouldn't look very short just shorter.

Textbook 5'9". If you look in the dictionary "5'9" guy" his picture will come up.
Matt said on 8/Apr/17
I'm so surprised of how idiotic people are for downgrading the most 5'9 guy in the world, I mean it's just an opinion but come on, putting him at 5'8? Look at this picture with 5'6 Jason Watkins, he clears 3inches Click Here
Josh said on 8/Apr/17
Hardy was shorter than 5'9 Mel Gibson! No way he is 5'9. There are some foreign sites that measure celeb heights counting angles and everything, I couldn't understand the language but they had estimated Leo DiCaprio's height as 178cm when standing next other celebs. That's maybe because Leo slouches a lot and has a poor posture. Hardy standing like an arrow was much shorter than 178cm standing Leo. So...still no way for him to be 5'9. You make 5'9 look so short.

Doesn't look anything less than 5'9 with 5'11.75 Christian Bale and 6ft1.75 Morgan Freeman.
5ft8 is wrong for Hardy, he's not a short guy, just average height.

Ok man, you call me stupid and think you will hurt my feelings. lol I love the fact you used the word "supposedley" and still insist on your point. Go ask someone who you believe to be a real trainer (for which you will have a hard time), and they'll tell you that those type of traps that Hardy has are not obtained unless you spend a lot I mean "a lot" of time in the gym. With two years of working out no one can build up that type of body, and it's far more difficult for a guy who is skinny as Hardy was. Just for your information, so as to let you know who is the stupid one here, take a look at Brad Pitt's body, Mark Wahlberg's, Matt Damon's and many many more, then come here and utter "he's an actor and he doesn't have time to go to the gym" lol. You'd better lift a bit before you comment about someone's bodybuilding training, so we'll see if you can build up Bane's body in "less than two years". lol, lift man, it's better for you health, physically and mentally haha
Matt said on 6/Apr/17
@Ray i am 5'9 myself, a decent one as I only drop 2mm under at my low so I'm 5'9 for pretty much the whole day. I wouldn't be surprised if he edged me by a few mm as theres so much evidence to prove he's 5'9. He stood next to Shia lebouf who is supposedly 5'9 but I think he's 5'8.5/75 and he edged him and this was at the lawless premiere and a couple I photoshoots. I'm not a gym person pal, I'm only 72kg. He hasn't had 10 years of training overall, oh my god you're so stupid 😂😂. Racked up together, he's probably had less than 2years of training to get into the shape as bronson, warrior and bane. For the last time, Hardy isn't like your gym mates, he seems honest with his height. Plus why do you downgrade him, you think that because he's "had 10years of training" meaning that he's like people at the gym who lie about their height. You sir, are stupid and I'd be surprised if you were an actual personal trainer or whatever you are, because you can't really seem to get that he's just an actor, he doesn't really have time to be in the gym. He's not well trained, he's just trained and guided to get into the shape of his characters. I bet he couldn't even remember the UFC stuff he did for warrior.
Ray said on 5/Apr/17
@Matt
When someone like you is so sure about someone else's height, claiming with confidence that Hardy is 5'9 not a cm shorter or taller it makes his point irrelevant. And there are many claiming 5'9 in the gym and when I measure them for giving them a program it appears that they are struggling with 5'7. Not everyone who has had 10 years of working out is a bodybuilder. Even if Hardy hasn't had 10 years in a row of working out, he definitely has had at least 10 years of training overall. I know what type of person you are, I meet them at the gym everyday, they try to to claim an imaginary height. Now I know you are English and would love to prove that Hardy is 5'9. There's nothing wrong with that. But first of all as a professional trainer I've got to tell you he is very well trained, and most definitely under 5'9.
Johnny said on 2/Apr/17
Gives a much bigger impression to me. Probably because he is a great actor who can play badass roles perfectly.
gjghjgjg said on 2/Apr/17
I am siding with Ray on this one. Guys are always exaggerating their height. Looking at the height claims of any actor and its generally one or more inches than their actual height. If he says he is 5 foot 9 he is probably less than 5 foot 9. But the measure of a man is his output not his height so whatever his actual height is, he is still a great actor.
Matt said on 1/Apr/17
@Ray he only worked out for films for several months, he's never had 10 years of gym experience, he's an actor mate, not a bodybuilder and this makes your point on height adding irrelevant. He is 5'9, no question. Nothing higher or lower.
Ray said on 30/Mar/17
@Matthew
Actually he does work out "a lot". I'm a bodybuilding trainer and I can tell you that his muscles are very well trained and this cannot be reached unless you have serious training for at least 10 years. And I'm not sure if he's 5'9, though it's not easy to tell. Most 5'9 guys at the gym claim to be 5'11-6'0. And when I measure them they still insist that they are not that short. It's a trend these days that people lie about their height. Sometimes they claim to be 10 cm taller than their actual height. So I'm not sure if these actors are truthful about their height.
gjghjgjg said on 30/Mar/17
I will agree that Tom Hardy is 5 foot 9.... with shoes on. Otherwise he is a strong 5 foot 8 eighter. If he says he is a five foot nine guy I guess there is no harm in that because in the real world people don't go around barefoot.
delancey said on 29/Mar/17
Said it before but this guy slouches a lot. In pics at red carpet events he holds good posture but for the most part he seems to not pay much attention to it (doesn't seem height conscious).
Look at the photo above, hand in pocket, body tilted to one side. This can make you appear shorter.
I'm a high range 5'8 (174cm at night) and before I corrected my terrible posture and stopped slouching I probably looked high 5'7 to people.
5'8 range just seems too low for Hardy, but until Rob gets a photo who knows?
KYO said on 28/Mar/17
@gjghjgjg I'm guessing you are a naturally stock and thick framed 5'9" guy. Hardy is clearly quite thing. I'm 5'9" with decent muscle and weight 165. I weighed under 145 before I started working out. I think Hardy is in the same boat. Keep in mind McGregor is supposedly under 150 now.
Shredder said on 27/Mar/17
He actually claims to be 150 lbs , and that he was 190 for bane.
Matthew said on 27/Mar/17
@gjghjgig He doesn't hit the gym 'a lot', he only hits the gym with trainers for his roles in films, just because he's not 185lbs doesn't mean he's smaller. I'm not the strongest 5'9 in the world but I weigh a mere 154lbs. You're talking rubbish. Tom Hardy also stated that he's not athletic at all, which is easy to believe because he's fairly built to not be athletic. He's easily the best example of a 5'9 guy. There's no need to downgrade him just because he's joking about his weight.
gjghjgjg said on 27/Mar/17
I think he is below 5 foot 9. I am 5 foot 9 myself and when I bulk up a bit at the gym I can hit 185 lbs at the gym no problem and I have average bone size. When he said he is "185lbs wet-through with bricks in my pockets" he is basically saying he is nowhere near 185 lbs, which is hard to believe for a 5 foot 9 guy who works out a lot. Also, pretty much every guy exaggerates their size, even more so guys in Hollywood. I will say he is 5 foot 8.
Luke said on 26/Mar/17
I think he was supposed to be 5'11 but I guess he's 5'9"
Cameron said on 26/Mar/17
Seems like a perfect example of a 5'9" flat guy. I think He'd likely edge out weak 5'9" guys like Steve Carell and Kiefer Sutherland, but seems a hair shorter than solid 5'9" guys like Matt Damon and Jamie Foxx. 5'9" flat seems perfect for him.
Steve said on 25/Mar/17
Never looks 1cm under or over 5'9. Seems to be 1 of the only celebs who doesn't try to exaggerate his height or wear lifts to make himself look taller.

Interesting that he seems to be the bookies favourite for the next actor to play Bond... we've gone from 6ft2 Sean Connery to 5ft10 Daniel Craig and now potentially to 5ft9 Tom Hardy... still I think he'll be good for the part though! Great actor!!
Matt said on 20/Mar/17
@Ely people do shrink actually, as your spinal discs start to flatten when you get older, it usually starts in your mid to late 30s but if you keep healthy, have good posture and decompress the spine with stretches for example, you'll reduce your natural shrinkage. Plus when everyone wakes up they are taller as the spinal discs have hydrated as you're not compressing your spine through gravity when you're in bed. But when you get out of bed the discs begin to compress more and more till the end of the day and it could result into losing 0.5 to even a full 1inch if not a little more and this is because of compression through gravity.

And he is solid 175.
Ely said on 20/Mar/17
People don't shrink, especially men in that age..
Matt said on 11/Mar/17
I think now cuz he's almost 40, he wakes up at 5'9.5 176.5cm then drops down to 5'8.75 174.7cm ish. Well that's what I think. So it's perfectly reasonable for him to be 5'9. In his prime I don't he would of dropped any lower than 175cm.
Guest66 said on 9/Mar/17
brandon, Seems believeable to me, 5'8 range was always a possibility for him. I don't get all these over 5'9 estimates, he looked good 4-5cm shorter than Joel Edgerton, and Edgerton can be 178-9cm.
brandon said on 2/Mar/17
Met him in bruxelles airport lat november.
I'm 5.11 and he's NOT even close to my height
He was wearing normal gym shoes, about 5.8/5.8,5 MAXIMUM .. 5.9 with shoes.
guaranteed
Liam said on 22/Feb/17
Love this guy as an actor and person. Would you put this guy in the 5ft 9.25 zone assuming he measures bang on the mark as his absolute low?
Also, who do you reckon would edge one another out Jamie fox or tom hardy?
Mark(5'9.25 said on 19/Feb/17
I thought he looked taller in films. He's my height really if we meet.

Rob, I have a feeling Hardy is very well my height. Not shorter than me by any measurement.
Revisionist said on 18/Feb/17
Funny thing is that 5'10" Thomas Jane already played Punisher.

Hardy looks like he could be slightly below average sometimes because of his horrible posture and thicker upper body. In Fury Road, he appears far more than 2cm shorter than Theron and at times was almost dwarfed by her. Poor posture will cost you over an inch in appearance. Camera tricks will cost you another inch or two.
lol93 said on 14/Feb/17
If he said that he is 5'9 he has probably done some measurment and he knows his height,I am 5'8 out of bed and I think 5'9 range guys with good posture and some thick shoes can look as tall as he appears

Have been watching Taboo (great show!). Looks a comfortable 5'9 in his scenes with 5'8 listed Franka Potente, both wearing shoes with a heel (who know's if there are any lifts involved).
Interestingly he does look 5'8 range (to my eyes) throughout the show but as others have said might just be weird camera angles etc.

Think this could be a closed book Rob?
Editor Rob: it's funny, I see the site from my administration panel and don't read the comments or scroll down like the visitors, so I only realised just now that he has 97 votes and literally it is right on 5ft 9, so I feel that's a good sign that most people are believing this guy is an honest guy and a top actor.

grizz said on 29/Jan/17
Unless his height was specifically mentioned in Knightfall story-line, you cannot then trump the official height and weight Click Here . Comics depend on artist's take on the character and can be extremely different: Batman from Golden Era is a relatively fit 6-foot-something 200 lbs guy while in Miller's story line Batman is portrayed as a monstruous 6'4 240 lbs (rough estimate) guy.
I'll rather stick with what DC itself settled.
Johnny said on 29/Jan/17
@grizz I am not sure that Bane was 6'8" in DC comics....I have read the entire Knightfall Bane story arc...actually there was a character called Zombie who was Bane's henchman, he looked taller than Bane and he certainly didn't look 6'8" compared to Batman and others. A 6'8" guy should tower over everyone but in the comics Bane didn't look that big...above average of course but not that colossal big......

So he thinks he's not tall enough to play the Punisher (who's 6'1 in comics), but he was tall enough to play Bane (who's 6'8)? LMAO

175/176. I've said it before it's his loose posture that he tends to have a lot of the time that makes him look in the 5'8" range.
I'm a 174 at night guy and from pictures of Tom at award nights i feel as though he would definitely edge me height wise.

Tom Hardy is regardless of Stature, among the present day elite actors. He deservedly needs to be ranked with such names as Daniel Day Lewis,Russel Crow,Leonardo Decaprio,and Matt Damon etc.,.

AJ said on 9/Jan/17
Rob you just said Tom Hardy can look taller than Ian Somerhalder. I think you should give him 5'9.25 or 5'9.5" to be fair.
MaskDeMasque said on 8/Jan/17
@Matt

I watched taboo as well and thought he looked shorter than 5'9. Looked 5'8 range in it. But yea, weird camera angles I think.
George12 said on 8/Jan/17
If you follow David Haye on Facebook you'll see him stood next to Hardy. A few commenters picked up on how big Haye looked next to Tom. It's not looking good for him I'll say that. It's either weird posture/angles going on or he's closer to 5ft8. Which wouldn't actually suprise me in the slightest. Rob what do you think, have you seen the photo? He looks small as.
Editor Rob: I've seen a few images of them before and I've never thought Hardy looked less than a good 5ft 9 range with Haye.
Matt said on 8/Jan/17
I do favour him as a solid 5'9 guy but he looked a tiny bit under in taboo, idk camera angles really make a difference!
Rent said on 7/Jan/17
He looks always tiny taller than Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and honestly he never looks two solid inch under Di Caprio, more 1.5 . Maybe he really doesn't care about his height and he says 5'9" based on the fact than we are straight and had good posture just sometimes. My guess is 5'9.5" for him, maybe 5'9.75". Great actor!
Sully said on 7/Jan/17
Hi Rob , who do you think is taller between Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf?

If he says 5foot9 then he is definetly not over it. no man reduces his own height. 175cm is probably it.

The "soaking wet with bricks in my pockets" is talking about his weight, its just a turn of phrase in Britain not meant to be taken literally. I believe him if he says 5'9 he's quite a secure guy he doesn't have issues with his height.

Arthur said on 21/Nov/16
@Bobby

Sorry buddy, but if straight after waking up you are not even a full 5'10.5, then you are almost certainly under 5'10 at night. You are probably not even 5'9 3/4. So forgett about claiming anything above 5'10, the most you could claim is 5'10, and even that is maybe a bit much for you. You are closer to 5'9.5. On the other hand, I am what you call ''a strong 5'10'', I wake up every day above 5'11, and drop down to about 5'10 1/4 at night. Sorry man...
Bobby said on 17/Nov/16
Definitely 5'9, I'm 5'10.5, at least in the mornings, but I'm a strong 5'10, so if you see pictures of me, I look the height, and Tom looks shorter even with his shoes on. I'm near 6ft with my dress shoes on, in the evenings, and just about 6ft in the morning.

Editor Rob: Unrelated to Hardy's case, I woke up this morning, got about 9 hours of sleep or so. So, I measured myself straight of bed and was very close to 5'10.5, by my estimation, I was about 3-5 millimetres off the mark, as my forefinger and thumb when pressed together equal half an inch and I couldn't even wedge in my fingers to check. Would you say it's safe for me to claim the half inch in the morning considering I was a tiny fraction off the mark?
anonnnn said on 16/Nov/16
Dude. He said he's 5 foot 9. It's not all that complicated. He's not 5 foot 9 and a half, 5 foot ten he's 5 foot 9. Quit boosting his height.
S.J.H said on 9/Nov/16
No he look 176ish strongly don't look under or more
Lynx said on 8/Nov/16
Maybe Hardy is 176-176,5 during the day? I mean, Joseph Gordon Levitt looks 176 but on 9/10 pictures together Tom looks 1cm taller, even with worse posture.

Go check promotionnels fury road photos!

Those pics reveal his height...mel gibson is 177cm and George miller is listed at 170cm..he is 174/175..

Anyway the dark knight rises production says he needed to get 3inchs for have the same height as Bale. .. 175 + 7,50 = 182,5cm ... bale is 183...this is it!

It's surprising that the comment "I weigh 185lbs wet-through with bricks in my pockets" is causing so much debate. That comment has nothing to do with height and is purely him saying that he is lighter than people tend to think he is. Please see:

Thanks Jim for making that clear. Its a saying in English parts of the world?

I still don't get a 185 pound, 5'9" guy saying that then. I wouldn't call that a small guy for that height.

My boyfriend Jim sparked my ongoing interest in him. It doesn't surprise me at all that he is honest about his average 5ft9. Why should he be? You don't ALWAYS need the extra inches to be suitable for the 'big man' roles, though of course, it helps! I thought he was brilliantly nasty in 'the Revenant' - a supervillain, and I keep finding him in other movies. He is definitely one to watch!

Erm guys that comment he makes ; "I'm five-foot-nine and I weigh 185lbs wet-through with bricks in my pockets" is causing some confusion. He basically means that he is 5'9" when standing normally. Alot of guys force their posture when being measured or do that breath in nonsense. Standing normally with his hair flat on his head ( wet) he would be 5'9". Thats my take on that comment.

I believe it, a strong 5'9" is possible I think. 176 cm.
Mark said on 9/Oct/16
He doesn't look too different with Chris Pine who is a big six footer.
Josh Jeffords said on 8/Oct/16
One of the best living actors can do anything even look huge in dark knight.
Of all the average guys he could have been the punisher.
He looks 5 10 on tv sayes he's 5 9 that's funny bricks don't make you taller..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Oct/16

Grownski said on 7/Oct/16
When he says "I'm five-foot-nine and I weigh 185lbs wet-through with bricks in my pockets" it means that he is exaggerating that he is 5'9. Meaning he is admitting that he is lower.
Patrick 5foot9 said on 7/Oct/16
Maybe he is 1.76m, he doesnt look short to me, but he round up, to be fair, like i do. I am 1.76m all day long, if i stand straight.
RichardHY said on 7/Oct/16
@Pacino
We have discussed that picture before. First of all Tom's footwear has the bigger and higher heel and secondly there might be some lifts inside as well. In the picture Scott has taken with Rob we are not sure about footwear differences. Definitely when they are asked to take pictures for announcing their height they will be more cautious about what to wear to look taller.

@S.J.H

If we assume Leo a full 5'11.5 in shoes, the difference between him and Hardy makes Hardy 5'8 in shoes. The difference between them is the same as Mark Wahlberg, Tobey Maguire and Tom Cruise with Leo when they were standing near Leo.
RichardHY said on 17/Sep/16
@Kenno

You must mean Peaky Blinders, Because Legend's location was in London. Currently he was in Liverpool for filimg Peaky Blinders.
The Kray brothers were also listed as 5'7.
S.J.H said on 17/Sep/16
Hardy look at most 5cm shorter than leo seriously if leo is 5''11.25 he can't be under 5'9.25
Kenno said on 17/Sep/16
I met Tom Hardy at my gym last year, when he was filming "Legend" in Liverpool and training at JD Gym (which was next door to the old night club - used as a movie set . First off, Tom was is a strong 5' 8" and was wearing pumps. I'm 5' 11" and wore Vans so I can make an honest comparison. For the record, everyone thought we was a smashing guy and he'd be made to feel welcome in Liverpool anytime.
Benefits said on 16/Sep/16
I always had a feeling he was in the 5'7-5'8 range. He looks well below average but definitely not short.
RichardHY said on 12/Sep/16
@Johno

Yeah mate. Tom's shoe has the thicker heel. If we assume the two being the same height Tom's shoe will make him edge out the other. Though still comparing Tom to different other actors we can estimate his barefoot height to be around 5'7-5'7.5, Does not look to be a 5'8.5, 5'9 barefoot guy.
People on Joel Edgerton page are discussing that he is 5'9-5'10 tops and he has 3 inches on Tom Hardy when they are facing each other barefoot.
Johno said on 12/Sep/16
Click Here

Looks about 1-inch taller than Andrew Scott who Rob has been pictured with and Rob looked 0.75-inches taller than but Tom Hardy footwear looks about 0.5-inches thicker than Scott's and in reality the difference looks 0.75-inches.

The difference between the two would be similar to the difference between Rob and Andrew, Hardy would probably average 5'8.5 like Rob.
Thomas45 said on 11/Sep/16
@RichardHY

You posted a good picture of the same event that Lynx posted and Edgerton has at least 3 inches on Hardy. Definitely nowhere around 5'10! more like 5'7.5 in his sneakers.
RichardHY said on 10/Sep/16
By the way Lynx Tom Hardy has never looked 5'10.75! What are you smoking? Here's a picture with Joel

Click Here

He is 5'8 in sneakers tops!
RichardHY said on 10/Sep/16
Lynx, we don't know about Tom's Footwear in the picture you posted. And Joel's posture is very bad in that photo. In most pictures he is "short". He looks the same height as Wahlberg, just compare Wahlberg near DiCaprio with Hardy near DiCaprio. Or compare Tobey Maguire near DiCaprio and Hardy near DiCaprio. Even Christoph Waltz. All these actors look the same height as Tom Hardy. It is obvious that he is shorter than 5'9 barefoot. Because he has a handsome face he makes everyone believe that he is taller than his real height. He is the same height as his stuntman who is only 5'7 and I have seen him twice. And let me tell you that Tom Cruise pulls 5'10 but everyone taunts him for no reason, but the reality is that he looks the same height as Hardy in pictures.
Thomas45 said on 10/Sep/16
@RichardHY Well, One of the reasons that 5'9 sounds so short these days is that 5'7 or 5'6 guys claim 5'9. Specially actors. I think Hardy's case is the same. 5'9 actors claim to be 5'11 and sometimes even 6'0. Note that Hardy wears lifts a lot.
Lynx said on 9/Sep/16
@RichardHY 5'7? wtf lol, he has normal legs, mark wahlberg has short legs, or ben stiller, and tom clearly doesn't have that body complex.
He can pull a 5'10,75 range with sneakers, that is just imposible for a ''5'7'' guy.
Click Here (on most photos with Joel Edgerton who is 5'10.75 they look on the same height range, just a little shorter).
RichardHY said on 1/Sep/16
I really don't think he is any taller than 5'7. His legs are too short to be 5'9. Even with his thick boots and thick lifts he could 't reach Bale's height. Anyway his legs are just too short.
Mark said on 30/Aug/16
This guy is exactly as tall as I am. I don't even think anything under 5'9" for this guy. I believe 5'9.25" would suit better, but still. Nothing under 5'9".
John said on 17/Aug/16
If those were ten inch intervals in that mugshot he should show above 6ft
sulaiman said on 16/Aug/16
Hi Rob , what do you think his height is straight out of bed?
Editor Rob: I don't think Hardy is a guy who would drop much under 5ft 9 at all, in fact he might be a guy who holds a comfortable 5ft 9 most of the day, so out of bed near 5ft 10.
Jeff said on 7/Aug/16
Rob, I think you should do a vote for Hardy just like you did with Dicaprio. That would be fair as I think the consensus here for him is 176 more than 175

James said on 11/Jul/16
Trick photography is a beautiful thing, isn't it? Any movie maker can make a person appear anyway they want. I would agree on Tom being 5'9" or close to it. But I want to add how he can fluctuate his weight around. Case and point is "Bane". Very impressive! I think I read where he likes to stay around 165-170 lbs. He weighed 195 for "Bane". He was considerably shorter than Christian Bale who is 6'0".
toor said on 11/Jul/16
Hi Rob , is Tom Hardy 175 cm in shoes or 175 cm barefoot , he looks to be 175 cm in shoes because his legs are pretty short.What do you think?
Editor Rob: we try to estimate based on no shoes.
mani said on 2/Jul/16
have you heard there's no player below 175 cm , for both times there are pictures with huge difference . I saw Tom on fan photo assert that the size
and I can tell you that do not over 170 cm, then stop the dreamer . I saw some comments that say ohhhh 5.10 . 5.9 he did not do at all either . watch his film or cane festival and you will see . those good day to all

Rob, take a very very close look at the pictures with shia labeouf , gordon levitt and others, you will see that him is 177-178 cm.if he says is 1.75 that does not mean that is true. Rob what do you think ?
fgvhbjnklm,; said on 11/Jun/16
Rob, what do you make of this pic from filming of the last episode of Peaky Blinders? Both wearing similar dress shoes (can see Cillian Murphy's in scenes but not Hardy's so I assume his are standard).
If Murphy is 5'8, what perception does this photo give you of Hardy's height or is it not reliable?

Click Here
Editor Rob: Cillian at times can look over 5ft 8, other times you think he's at most 5ft 8...I don't know about how they look on Peaky yet, but generally I would think Tom is the taller of the two.

Gaza, i noticed that to but that might have more to the with the fact that his face is closer to the camera and thus appears relatively larger. The back of his head is against the wall.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 30/May/16
There's absolutely no way that his face is 1'7", so there's obviously an error there. It looks as if each bar is more likely three inches, so his face is around 5'9 1/2".
Justanotherguy said on 29/May/16
I don't believe that's a real mugshot so just about everything about that picture is uncertain. What is interesting is he looks about 5'8-5'9 if the measuring is right. Personally I believe Tom Hardy is listed correctly here but I just thought it was a good picture share.
Gaza2121 said on 28/May/16
@Justanotherguy, that can't be right because the bottom of his chin says 4'0" and the top says 5'0".
tiny said on 27/May/16
he has good proportion, but he looks like not around 175cm. I saw a photo tom hardy with chris pine, and he is at least 10cm shorter. furthermore tom hardy's footwear was higher. i think 5'6" between 5'7". maybe 5'7.25".
Johno said on 26/May/16
@Justanotherguy, wow ----- is that mugshot for real? He is probably barefoot in that shot but the picture appears to be dead on and Hardy looks under 5'8 there; like between 5'7-5'8. I had him at 5'8-ish but then again he looked 1-1.25-inches shorter than Mario Lopez who is around ~5'9 but yet again ---- bl**dy heck.

I think Hardy is pretty open about his body muscle gaining methodz and has alluded to having used some "aid" in order to gain muscle mass.

More interesting is how he holds weight on his 5'9" frame. He's said he goes as low as 155 and as high as 185! I think he boycotts the gym between roles, although he looks much better than most actors when they put on 30 lbs.

When the guy himslef has claimed to be 5'9 I don't get it why some people upgrade his height to 5'9.5 or 5'9.75! It is like everybody wants to make these actors look taller. I remember years ago when the media had his height at 5'10 everybody believed so. I also donnot think that a 5'9 guy looks that short as he does in many pictures.

From action type roles I think he is fine at the height he is, even in that film with Chris Pine which had a fair bit of action, he held up pretty well.

Althhough in some shots, the 5'8 Stewart seems to edge Hardy. So he can arguably look no taller then a 5'8 there as some fans have suggested he stated his height at earlier on in some of his own personal social forums.

Patrick 5'8
Tom hardy, can appear no taller than Stewart.

Here is another shot of him with Sir Patrick Stewart, i am finding it hard to see more then a 0.25-0.5-inch difference.

He clearly looked shorter then a 5'8.75-5'9 Mario Lopez and does not look much taller then a 5'8 Stewart.

He can look 5'8.5. with Stewart.

I get the impression that Hardy genuinely does not care about his height or perceived lack therefore...yeah, got his Oscar nom for The Revenant but almost certain to be first of many. Even though he plays a lot of grunting tough guys, I think he's got a lot of talent.
guhijkol said on 1/Mar/16
Rob, what do you think the chances of Tom being 175 out of bed/an hour out of bed? Is the listing morning or evening?
Editor Rob: I think he is a guy who holds 5ft 9 comfortably during the day, and maybe on a really bad night doing action scenes might only drop a little bit shy of it.
Johno said on 27/Feb/16
@Rampage, i have never suspected Mario of wearring lifts but large heeled shoes; at times ----- yeah.

At this particular Red carpet even Mario's shoes appeared 1.25 inches whereas Hardy's and Leonardo's, 0.75 inches and ~ 1.1 inches respectively thus Mario did appear to have footwear advantage but about half inch. Even so, he appeared more then an inch taller then Hardy and Rob has Mario listed at 5'9, i have always had hik at 5'8.75 and alot of users state ranges lower then mine thus, next to Mario Hardy does appear 5'8 or near there. Whereas Leo would appear 0.25-0.5 inches taller without footwear consideration and 0.75 inches with thus, if Mario is 5'8.75, Leo would appear around 5'9.5 inches ----- we can give him a 5'10 max.

Hardy 5'8.25
Lopez 5'8.75
Leonardo 5'10 max
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Feb/16
Johno, I wouldn't be surprised if Lopez had a much bigger shoe advantage. Unlike Hardy who is dead honest about his stature, Lopez claims 5ft11
Johno said on 15/Feb/16
Considering Mario Lopez had 1-inch on him and was not even standing tall, 5'8 would be a good shout for Hardy. The different would be around 1.25 inches if Mario had stood taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Feb/16
Rob, could you add The Drop, Legend, Black Hawk Down and Band Of Brothers to that list?
Editor Rob: Revenant and Legend worth adding, but over time keeping 10 good films for Hardy will be tough...

Hardy's eye level is quite high, it's irritating and makes an estimate difficult.

Maybe this was the reason why you saw him at 5'10. Besides I never watched him acting without thick footwear.
For me a solid 5ft 9.
Editor Rob: with good posture and thick shoes anybody has potential to look a bit taller, you can see an old pic Here, that's how he could look!

I'd never though suspect a guy like him to wear lifts from how he appears in interviews etc, but then who is the 'lift wearing type'

He has tendency to look shorter, at least on screen. Maybe it's his stocky build or poor posture sometimes, but he look like he is dipping in 5'8" range. Tom still can be very well measured at 5'9", but 174cm wouldn't surprise me.

I think he was at least 5'9.75 he downgrade his height to get more role for his acting. Smart guy. If he really was 5'9er other actors should all fell an inch lower. 5'9 no way. Rob should upgrade him at 5'9.75

Rob, if Tom had never claimed his 5'9 height, how tall would you have estimated him, considering you saw him in person once from a distance
[Editor Rob: he looked 5ft 10, but it is quite possible with bigger footwear (which I can't remember if he had) and better posture a 5ft 9 guy can pull that off. I think the more you see of him, the more he looks 5ft 9 range.]
CD said on 3/Aug/15
Rob, do you remember what footwear he had with Anthony Montgomery all those years back? You mentioned having more than Montgomery yourself so maybe Hardy did too and that's why he looked almost 5ft 10?

Are you positive you're 5ft 11? If you feel short at that height, you may have measured yourself incorrectly.

5ft 9-10 is still average in most western countires, but a 5ft 9 male can still feel short if he goes to a club and there's alot of 5ft 7/8 girls who are wearing heels.

5'9 or 175 seems right. He's not tall but not small. Also his build does him justice, he can seem taller in movies such as Bronson. Definitely living proof that an alpha male can be average height.
Sam said on 29/May/15
Rob, could you also add Bronson, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Locke to his credits?
[Editor Rob: I think over time this guy's description of movies will change a bit.]
Arch Stanton said on 27/May/15
Rob can you add Mad Max: Fury Road?
Bishop said on 25/May/15
Hats off to this guy. One of the most honest 5'9" actors and admits it.
callaghan said on 25/May/15
NO WAY he's more than 5.8,5 . NO way .
My girlfriend is actually 5.9 and standing next to him for an autograph they were pretty the same height.
He was wearing a working boot with about 1,5" sole, she has got a pair of beach sandals with NO SOLE at all.

"Yeah but average height are calculated within the whole population, including elderly people who are much shorter. I do agree with terry, in most western countries, within the 20/30 yr old-male range, 5'9 is quite short (I'm 5'9). Not extremely short though, since a lot of people are still within 5'8/5'11 range. "



Absolutely not.

Most studies are done with young participants, age range 18/25.I am afraid your personal impressions are not in the same level of serious scientific studies.


Bottom line is, Tom Hardy is average or just below (like 1 inch).Average height for a man in western countries is 5'9 / 5'10.

@L'E

Universal? I'm pretty sure most people consider 6'0" tall. Except for maybe the Scandinavians. And 60% of the world population lives in Asia. In Asia, a guy who's 6'0" is probably considered VERY tall.

And it's nice to see that not only is Tom Hardy a great actor, but one of the very few who is honest about his height.

175cm and taller than Joseph Gordon-Levitt
[Editor Rob: I think it's worth looking at a few photos (a couple of them are photoshopped here), I think it varies as to one looking taller at times...I think they are pretty close in all likelihood.]

Hardy just reiterated his height as 5'9 in an interview about Punisher. I think we can safely say he's telling the truth now, especially seeing as he was admitting to being shorter than ideal for The Punisher. I was heartened to see the majority fan reaction that they didn't care about his height, though!
L'E said on 20/May/15
Universal standards for male height. Below 5'9" = short. 5'10"-6' = medium. 6'1" plus = tall.
callaghan said on 18/May/15
two weeks ago i met him in a nairport. I was there with my girlfriend, she asked him for a pic but he sayd :no thanx. I'm 6.1 and my girl is actually 5.9. She ha got a pair of beach sandal and they ( she and hardy) were THE SAME HEIGHT. He wore a pair of boots.

some people are saying 5'9'' is average height?? Well I'm 5'11" and I'm often the shortest guy in the pub/club/shop

Check your height with an aerosol can against a wall, i dare you. 5'9 range is still average in alot of countries.
Ones that i have been to last couple years on holiday; Spain, Germany, Switzerland, France, Turkey. 5'9 man would be perfectly average there, anywhere in the 175-177 range.
MD said on 17/May/15
Well, except for the fact that Tinie is nothing above 5'8". I mean, that's something I put in a lot of work to narrow down; I'm sure you remember.

Strange Rob saw 5 '10 , I really don't think under 5 '9 based on that
[Editor Rob: sometimes footwear can be more than we think. Especially with boots, some may have an outsole that looks near an inch, but as I said with cat boots, it can give near 1.5.]
Voulou said on 15/May/15

With 5'7.5 Tinie Tempah, I would say a good 5'9. What do you think Rob?
[Editor Rob: I'd say 5ft 8 and 9 is ok for them both.]
Sam said on 14/May/15
Hardy looks a somewhat weak 5'9" compared to a heeled Charlize Theron at the Fury Road premiere. Theron's boyfriend Sean Penn looks similar range IMO in comparison but actually seems to be holding better posture than Hardy.

Mel gibson 5.8/ 5.9
tom not possible 5.9
MD said on 12/May/15
@terry, I mean, those two things (the fact of average height, and your anecdotal observation) can both be true. Just know that average height is an actual scientific measurement of something, and your anecdotes are, well, just anecdotes.

Very not tall said on 10/May/15
Seems like he could be exactly the same height as me, 5'9.5 morning and about 5'9 flat or a hair under by the end of the night

Regardless of his height, Tom's still a big guy for you and me.
177-178 cm guy said on 29/Apr/15
Tom is a sloucher. You can tell from photos. That's probably why he appears shorter than this at times.
ArjunaKorale said on 18/Apr/15
Rob, I have in the past argued that some people on your site are actually slightly taller than you have stated, but Hardy is an exception - I really believe that Tom is even shorter than a flat 5 ft 9 inches. I have seen him in many films & interviews, & believe that he is NO MORE THAN 5 FEET 8 INCHES (173 CM) TALL.
[Editor Rob: the time I seen him he looked nearer 5ft 10 than 9! But then some people can give off smaller/taller impressions depending on footwear or postures.]
pitbull said on 17/Apr/15
met him two months ago in London. I'm 5.10 wearing sneakers.. he was standing next to me with a pair of working shoes (about 1,5 inches sole) and he was CLEARLY shorter than me. I would give him 5.8,5 NOT more
Sam said on 15/Apr/15
Did Benedict work under a pseudonym in that, LOL
AJ said on 5/Apr/15
The 5'9.5" listing was way better, atleast upgrade him to 5'9.25"
lelman said on 2/Apr/15
@Churchil That's one weird pic, Nolan can really pull off looking legit 6'0" at times. Tom is slouching a lot there, if he stood up straight he would easily be looking 5'9" though.

This guys is living proof that you can be an alpha male at average height.

he was made where really high boots in the batman movie to make him look taller
james said on 4/Feb/15
Well they did a good job in dark knight rises ..with the special elevator boats he was wearin and the camera tricks in some scenes .to make him appear hulking

Dmeyer said on 25/Jan/15
I have looked at hundreds if pics with pine he looks 8cm shorter so 184cm and 175-6cm is right now if 175cm flat for hardy pine could be in between 183-184cm of course pine can look 4in taller if Hardy is slouching but when both in equal posture pine dosnt évén look as much as 9cm taller more Like 8cm
MD said on 22/Jan/15
I'm not sure what a picture with Murphy stretched up and Hardy hunched over can tell us. That's not a good picture to judge any small detail on.
fsd said on 21/Jan/15
Click Here cilian murphy looks 2 inches shorter than 5'9 listed joseph levit even though i think levit is 5'8ft . so cilian is either 5'6ft or flat 5'7ft. in the previous pic posted by churchil he might be wearin lifts ,hardy's wearing flats and has a bad posture .
churchil said on 20/Jan/15

Jeff said on 16/Jan/15
Rob, don't you think 5'9 flat is too low? 176 minimum for Hardy.
Adamz said on 11/Jan/15
175cm afternoon height seems good. Maybe 174 before bed?
