He's nice and tall, which means I never have a double chin. When I'm on screen with him, I'm always looking up, like a swan.

I was so impressed with Clive’s take on Sir Walter Raleigh in Elizabeth - The Golden Age that I went on to buy many more of his films.

Strangely, in all his movies, specially Inside Man, The International and Shoot Em Up...he really looks much taller than what other 6-2 actors look. He would be easily guessed as 6-3 if not 4. I think in the picture with jet li, he looks about 8 inches taller even without standing straight on both feet. He is leaning on foot. Had he been standing straight, he would look 9 inches to 9.5 inches taller. Jet li i think is maybe 5-6. And so this guy would look 6-3. I think, with hair and shoes he probably looks almost 6-5, hence adjust for thise and 6-3.

He looked like a tower in Children of men.

Very tall looking 6-1.75 guy

6ft2 peak/6ft1Β½ now or still 6ft1ΒΎ...don't really see a difference between now and 20 years ago
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Dec/20
Rob, is 6ft2 peak and 6ft1Β½ today arguable?
Editor Rob
he might have lost 1/4 inch now...I still think weak 6ft 2 is possible peak for him, but it is true about his more slouchy appearance at times devaluing how tall he can look.
OriginalAnon said on 24/Sep/20
Looks 187cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jan/20
Rob, who do you is taller peak Benicio Del Toro or Clive?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jan/20
Hugh Laurie would easily edge out Clive
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Oct/19
In the Springtime of 2017, I got seriously into the films of Clive Owen - and thought he was absolutely marvellous!

Today, Clive turns 55, so....

Not great camera angles but here he is with 6'1" Matt Berninger (The National) who is in a wide stance.
6'1" seems too much.

Click Here

Click Here

Berninger is listed on google as 6'3" but I've stood next to him, he's not. Here's Berninger with 6'1.5" David Letterman

Maybe with the camera angle this is all useless …
Sean said on 19/Apr/19
I'm looking at pictures with him standing next to a 5'8ish" guitarist, and also looking at pics of said guitarist next to his 6'1" front man.
Gotta go with 6'1" tops.
Manolo said on 6/Aug/18
Six one flat at most, and probably a bit less.

Certainly does not look 8.25” taller than 5’5.5” Jet Li in the pic at top, so the nearly 6’2” claim would seem to be DOA.
Nik said on 20/Apr/18
@ Canson

Yes I agree!
Canson said on 19/Apr/18
I think this listing fits him
Sonnecker said on 24/Jan/18
Physically very similar to Hugh Laurie....I always saw him like a 189 cm tall, but 188 cm seems an honest claim.
Sixone said on 17/Jan/18
@bego I was wearing sneakers with 1/2 sole. I’m 6’1.5 flat footed. Clive was still taller than me by about an inch.
Bego said on 13/Nov/17
He's 6ft compared to 5'8'' Cara in Valerian. Guy who claimed that he's 6'1'' who stood next yo him is maybe 6'1'' in high boots lol.

6ft1 flat is too low.
Sixone said on 27/Sep/17
I'm 6'1 and I've stood next to Clive with him wearing sneakers and he was easily an inch taller than me. Also Philip Kauffman the man in the pics with Clive and Nicole is 6ft to 6.1 so Nicole is at least 6.2 with those heals.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Aug/17
He has to be near 6ft2. He edges out 6ft1 guys but usually looks a bit shorter than 6ft3 guys
jessman said on 22/Aug/17
Just saw him in a 2016 film where he stood next to Matthew Modine n one scene. He was easily two inches shorter than Modine. Was aware he claims to slouch so had this in mind but he appeared to be standing straight. 6'1 max for Clive Owen.

A strong 186/187 cm barefeet

With shoes classic 189 cm not more.
JimmyJace said on 25/Jul/17
My friend met this guy and he looked a solid 6ft because my friend was 5'11 exact and saw that he was schockingly not as tall as he thought
Tom said on 20/May/17
Looked quite tall in Children of Men.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Feb/17
Might've worn bigger shoes to pull off 189cm range in the past. I thought he was that at one point
berta said on 18/Dec/16
to mes he looks like a 187-188 guy either of them is good listing 186 is to short and 189 is to tall
truth said on 21/Jun/16
Looks just over 8 in tall with 5'5.5 Jet Li including his cap which adds 0.25. He is in the 6'1.75 - 6'2 range, perfect height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Apr/16
Could get down to 6ft1Β½ after a long day on his feet. But I'd be surprised if he'd measure as low as 6ft1 flat today. He admits it himself that he doesn't have good posture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Mar/16
Rob, I think A make him more of a solid 6ft2 guy?

I think in the past he could look that range but today he looks a bit less. At times he can appear closer to 6ft1.
Editor Rob
how much he really does lose with his stance is debatable, anywhere from 6ft 1 to 2 range he could look over his career.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Mar/16
Rob which height range would you go for?

A) 190cm/188cm
B) 189.5cm/187.5cm
C) 189cm/187cm
D) 188.5cm/186.5cm
E) 188cm/186cm
Editor Rob
anywhere in A-C range I think...over the years maybe his bad habit of loose posture hasn't helped how he holds himself.
Aza said on 5/Mar/16
He is 73 inches
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Mar/16
He seems really into himself. A lot of these British actors really conceited. This guy, Hugh Grant, Tom Hiddleston, Simon Pegg and Cumberbatch also come to mind as being a bit arrogant.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jan/16
Rob can you squeeze in Close My Eyes, Derailed and Elizabeth: The Golden Age and TV series The Knick? Close My Eyes was with the late Alan Rickman. Did look 6'2" in that, even cockier at that younger age too, about as smug as it gets.
plus said on 28/Nov/15
I remember a girl in a forum that must messed possibly a height and another actor with Clive Owen and she said she was dissapointed when she had been found that he was only 164 cm! Then other girls corrected them that he was tall and that height was wring.She was relieved then. It was a funny situation!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Nov/15
Looked 2in taller than Jimmy Fallon recently.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Sep/15
Good call...long overdue.
Guybrush said on 24/Sep/15
Drinks in the coffee shop round the corner from me. Terrible posture but definitely about 186-7 with it. Straighten him out he'd be a solid 6'2"
Arch Stanton said on 18/Sep/15
@Rob Any chance of 6'1.75 then? I think a smidge under 6'2" might be more accurate. Look at him with Benicio del Toro for instance.
Editor Rob
that is the mark I think is probably fairest.
Andrea said on 17/Sep/15
You always say that but let's start with things that are ruled out: 6'2, for example! 6'1.5 is really his best case scenario, could you downgrade him to that or you really think there's even 1 chance out of 100 he could be over 6'1.5?
Andrea said on 15/Sep/15
First, it depends on who saw him... Not everybody is as accurate as you on guessing heights. Second, i doubt "over 6 foot" is enough for being listed at 6'2! That way, big G has a point for claiming 5'8, since he's "over 5'6" :)
But seriously, this guy never ever looks a big 6'2, as i said, he can look not much over 6' too many times! Now, i'm not saying he should be listed at 6' or 6'0.5 but 6'1.5 is really his best case scenario! Again, look at him with Eric Johnson, who is a genuine 186 (didn't look over it with Tom Welling but still i wouldn't put him under that mark)... He does look shorter than him! You say it is just bad posture? Yeah, at times he really has bad posture but i can't believe he's losing 2 inches in posture in almost every picture!
Editor Rob
6ft 1.5 isn't ruled out.
Andrea said on 13/Sep/15
Funny how Rob decided to give him a photo where he looks... i meant, he doesn't look 6'2 at all! :) The story of his life. Of course he also isn't standing at his tallest, too! This is really a symbolic picture for Big Clive xD
Great choice, Rob!
Editor Rob
I know at least one person who has met him, he thinks he is over 6 foot but couldn't say just how much...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/15
He does look a solid 6ft2 guy in Children Of Men
ed said on 5/Sep/15
Clive Owen = 187cm absolute minimum IMO.
Andrea said on 12/Aug/15
He can look 6'-6'0.5 a lot (with bad posture, if he really has this "legendary" bad posture)... He can look near an inch shorter than 186 range Eric Johnson and for some reason he does look shorter than 6' Jamie Hector! He must be losing 1.5-2 inches in height in every photo to be a legit 6'2 guy! Maybe he doesn't like to be tall :)
Rob, is there a way to lose permanently a couple inches in height? Maybe he should consider that, so he can stand at his tallest in photos without looking "too tall" (even 6'2 is still far a way from being "too tall", IMO)!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Aug/15
With a slouch he can appear more 6ft1 range but I doubt he's just 185cm.
Jim Hopper said on 7/Aug/15
More 6-1 than 6-2 imo
sho said on 30/Jul/15
6'2 definitely, doesn't have a good posture, so that's why he looks shorter sometimes
MrTBlack said on 26/Jul/15
Nothing over 6'2" definitely. Probably 6'1" but this is the most he is.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jul/15
Rob, could you give him a peak height like with Hugh Jackman?
A6'2Guy said on 17/Jul/15
@Chameleon Doesn't seem to have optimal posture.
I think he is at least close enough to 6'2" to claim it.

Next to a 5'10 listed Model in big heels.

Other angle with her more relaxed Click Here

Could maybe be 6'2.5 in shoes there but could he stretch out for a measurement? Not under 6'1.5 anyway.
qartt said on 3/Apr/15

Why is Clive looking down in your photo to make eye contact, the photo gives a poor perspective.
Andrea said on 29/Mar/15
Yeah, so if someone says to have bad posture a lot of the time, he gets bigger benefits of doubt? Words aren't enough! I've seen him in a few movies and photos and, while it is true he sometimes doesn't stand at his tallest and can look only 6', i have hard time to believe he'd manage to get another couple inches! In this picture he doesn't look taller than that guy and maybe even a bit shorter! 6'2 seems virtually impossible! This posture thing seems to be the only thing to mantain him at 6'2... It could be a new "trick" for celebrities: " if you wanna get a higher listing on celebheights, say you have bad posture"! Let's just hope Sly or Arnie won't read this thing or they'll get upgraded at their peak heights soon! :)
Andrea said on 28/Mar/15
Look at him with this guy: Click Here
This guy looked 184 next to Tom Welling...
Rob, you seriously think he might stretch for a 6'2 measurement or even near it? And don't say he's got bad posture in this photo because if anything he's got better posture than the other guy!
Editor Rob
clive says himself he has bad posture a lot of the time, but 6ft 1.5 for him could always have been nearer to the mark.
Andrea said on 15/Mar/15
Rob, have you seen The Knick? I've seen only a few episodes but from what i've seen he can look an inch shorter than Eric Johnson! Now, Eric didn't look anything above 6'1.25 next to Tom Welling, so you think he's a guy who looks 6' range with bad posture and can gain 2 inches with better posture?
Editor Rob
not watched it yet, there are a heap of shows I've not been able to watch over last 5 years.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jan/15
187-188cm range.
sullivan 87 said on 9/Jan/15
I believe in killer elite, he is listed 184 cm on the passport
dp 92 said on 8/Jan/15
You can barely till the difference between a 184 guy and a 187 guy so.. There is to the eye a higher difference between a 180 guy and a 183 guy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/15
I wouldn't go as low as 186cm, let alone 184cm!

187cm could be the on the money though.
dp 92 said on 4/Jan/15
Looks 184-186 in the knick hej may look 6'2 since he is lean built
raul3 said on 29/Dec/14
met him not too long ago. Looked 6ft4 in boots. Pushing 6ft3 barefoot would be my guess.
Emil 183 cm said on 23/Dec/14
His absolute low could be 187 cm, Rob? But 6'2 is fair, he always looks quite tall
184.3cm said on 21/Oct/14
187 cm could be argued but i wouldnt go as far as 185cm...the guy has awful posture most of the time and never looks less than a 6'1 guy.
Andrea said on 20/Oct/14
Don't need what? So if a guy says he has bad posture and doesn't look a certain height, he instantly got the benefit of doubt? Don't say that or you probably will see Sly slouching heavily in all photos from now on, just to get the full 5'9 listing back :)
But, no, seriously, Eric certainly doesn't look over 186 with Tom and the same Eric can look an inch taller than Clive, maybe with bad posture yeah... I mean, 186 for Clive is possible, it isn't ruled out but 6'2, IMO, is... But then again it's full of guys who are just 6'1 or a bit over and listed at 6'2 on here, so it's kinda fair in a sense, if you wanna keep that way. That's why i can't see Lance at only 6'2, maybe because i'm used to not 6'2 guys on here...
Editor Rob
I'm just saying I don't need to mention the posture, because Clive himself noted it himself, that he doesn't stand that well.
Andrea said on 18/Oct/14
Looks it? O.O
Rob, btw, have you seen him with Eric Jonhson? Now, Eric doesn't look 6'2 for sure next to Tom Welling in Smallville, i actually don't think he's over 6'1.5 and he can actually look only 6'1-6'1.25 next to Tom. Guess what? Eric can look taller than Clive! As you know, i already had doubts on Clive being close to 6'2, now that seems impossible! None of them (Eric and Clive) are 6'2 guys and Eric probably is taller! A 190 Tom Welling would put Eric at 186 and Clive maybe around 185? Oh wait, he's got bad posture xD
Editor Rob
Clive did mention his posture, I don't need to.

I think he is a legit 6ft2 (of course with good posture) you could argue 1.87 but i don't think he dips much below 188, something like 187.7- 188 at night.

Owen can look a 6ft 1 guy a lot of the time, his posture though isn't the best, he might be somewhere between 6ft 1 and 2 and just rounded to 6ft 2.
John said on 25/Mar/14
189 is too much. I've never met him but he looks like he could be not far from a 6'2". I think he's big 6'1" who with shoes is more like a weak 6'2", but close enough to claim it.
Chris said on 19/Jan/14
The guy is 6'2 or 6'1.5 when maintaining a poor posture, I met him before and he was 1.5-2 inches shorter than me ( I am a solid 193-194)
Sam said on 8/Jan/14
Derailed is interesting for height comparison. Owen does hold his own with Vincent Cassel and RZA, both near 6'2", in the film and looks about an inch shorter in than 6'3" David Morrissey in his brief part.

There are a lot of words I'd use to describe Clive. Slim would not be one of them.

Good Posture, slim build, wears decent heels (not Lifts) in movies etc.. 6'1" max.

1cm less or more is perfect, although, he's going to be 50 and still in a good shape :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Sep/13

Might be a bit under this. But, I doubt he's just 6ft1 flat.
He was a bit shorter than Benicio Del Toro who might be a strong 6ft2.

Overall I think he's a legit 6ft2

I think he's more of a 187cm guy. Doesn't look like a legit 6'2 to me
Lo sgozzatore said on 1/Feb/13
When you see this guy claiming 6'2 and a guy like Lance Reddick claiming the same height, it's natural to think "what the f***?"... And also when you see they're listed at the same height, on this site, you realize there's something wrong. Clive Owen is slightly taller than 6' guys, Lance Reddick make 6' guys look short: this is the difference...

I'd say he is 6'1 (185cm)

nicole kidman is 5'10 (178cm - maaaaybe 179cm in the morning) and seems to wear 3 inch (7-8cm) heels which would put her at 186cm area..if clive owen was 188cm flat then in these shoes he'd be 191cm and thus 2 inches taller...yet he is clearly at least an inch shorter than her...with a perfect posture he'd be around the same height at best .. but technically ,if he was 188cm, he should be slightly taller than her without any shoes since kidman is 186cm area in those heels i give him 185cm (6'1) flat and 6'2 area (187cm-188cm) in regluar shoes ...almost all actors round up their height by at least an inch (2-3cm)
James said on 12/Nov/12
6'1.5. 188cm in the morning and 189cm out if bed.

I have heard 6'3 described for him as well which is ridicolous given that he can look jus 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/12
Sorry, let me rephrase that. I mean a lot of websites list him at 189cm. I was just wondering if going back over the history of this website, he was once listed at that height?
Editor Rob
I've got a database backup from 2006 and he was 6ft 2 then and added in 2005, so he's held steady.

This guy totally looks like Marton Csokas, and I bet they are around the same height too, 6'1. Don't know why, but Csokas gives me a taller impression on screen.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 9/Sep/12
Funny how you got 6'2 guys who look very tall on screen like mcgainey who is clearly taller than guys supposed to be tall about 6'2 like matthew fox or terry o'quinn and then you have these guys like clive owen who should be 6'2 but never looks this tall!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/12
His officially listed height is 6"2.5(189cm). Rob, was he once listed here at that a few years ago?

his official height is 6ft 2 as he says himself ;)

Yeah, shaun. I always said he's not a 6'2 guy... Now rob has found this quote and just goes with this "not standing straight" thing... Considering he's even nearer the camera, he struggles to look 6'1 in this pic as he often does!

Barry if you're 5'11" he wouldn't tower you at 6'2" at all. He'd look a couple of inches taller, that's all.

6'1 people with long legs and lean bodyframe, can look nearly 6'3 so...

Clive Owen and Bryan Ferry were recenly snapped head to head in London Click on Getty Images). Ferry is 1.85cms confirmed (6feet one inch. Owen cannot be 6feet 2inches from this.
Barry said on 14/Feb/12
I once ran into Clive at a supermarket in Covent Garden, London. He was eating a packet of crisps as he perused the store at lunchtime. He was dressed very smartly in a dark suit. I am 181 cm and he certainly gave the impression of towering over me. I would say 6'2". But that was about 10 years ago now, so maybe he is 6'1.5" now. He certainly appears to be a lot taller than he is because he is very lean and "lanky". Just check him out in the superlative Children of Men when he is walking full shot. You can see his narrow frame (and also the unattractive gait that almost certainly jeapordised his chances of playing James Bond) in these shots, unerlined by the trench-coat. Reminds me of David Warner in this regard who was very lanky, but not as tall and he looked like he might have been. Hope this makes sense. This is my first post on the website.
Jenna said on 8/Feb/12
Just watched "Gosford Park" and he was just a hair shorter than Charles Dance, whom your site says is 6' 3"...
Chris said on 7/Feb/12
If this guy is 6'2 then Ioan Gruffudd and Jude Law should be immediately upgraded to 6' - 6'0.5 range. Clive Owen is 6'1, no way 6'2 c'mon.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 2/Feb/12
Maybe you're right, i mean if he doesnt stand as tall as possible that could be the reason why he looks max 6'1. I still think he's not a legit 6'2 but maybe he's really nearer 6'2 than 6'1 as you say.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 1/Feb/12
Rob, you said you were gonna see him almost 2 months ago but he's still listed at 6'2. Come on, this is not the way a legit 6'2 guy should look. He looks tall but not 6'2!

I found the quote and he did go and mention he doesn't stand as tall as he can. Maybe it's quite possible he can look just 6ft 1 a lot of the time, but might measure nearer 6ft 2 than 1.

Sorry Rampage I agree with Andrea.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 27/Dec/11
I'm male, my dear Rampage... So you're the one bad at speaking english :)
and you're also the bad one at estimating heights! Here everybody knows how generous you are at judging heights, you always add 1-2 inches to celebs :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Dec/11
188cm is fine, Rob ignore Andrea...shes about as good at guessing
height as she is at speaking english
ANDREA[ITA] said on 18/Dec/11
Rob, any comments? :)
Editor Rob
I can only reply to so many comments, yes there is a good shout he might be under this mark, I need to have a look at the listing when I get time and decide.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 18/Dec/11
Rob, why dont you downgrade to 6'1.5 (even if that is still too tall for him)? He really doesnt look over 6'1 most of the times, post some pics where he looks a legit 6'2!
ANDREA[ITA] said on 21/Nov/11
if he's 187, then tim robbins is around 6'5.5 and other celebs need to be upgraded!
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 18/Nov/11
He's 6ft1.75in, Cassel looks close to him so could be 1,87 m as well.
TruebloodFan said on 7/Nov/11
constantly looks 6'1.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 6/Nov/11
To me next to both Tim Robbins and much other actors and actress he looks 6'1 tops! But as alway you never know... Obviously 6'2 is too far from truth, i dont think he either hit that mark just out of bed!
thebad7 said on 5/Nov/11
@Andrea: That depends on your definition of "towering." To me, one towers over someone when one stands so that the level of their eyes clears the tops of the heads of others around them. Del Toro is standing in such a fashion where his eyelevel is clearing others' head tops in that particular two-minute clip. Definitely a tall man, but everyone has a different perspective.

Back to Owen: I wanted to tell you that I watched DERAILED recently and I paid close attention to Clive. 6'1"+. You are correct.

ANDREA[ITA] said on 5/Nov/11
thebad7 i already saw the video but i wouldnt call that towering! tower is when you're much taller than the others! in my opinion if he would measured with a stadiometer he wouldnt be 6'2 exactly but more like around 187... he could be 6'2 yeah but i think he's a bit less than that! forget about 6'2.5!
thebad7 said on 4/Nov/11
@Andrea (ITA): Trust me, I know what you mean about some of these actors. Del Toro in particular is tricky because he is definitely a sloucher, but when you see him stand like a ramrod, he's an easy 6'2". Clive Owen, on the other hand, looks like a textbook example of a strong 6'1" guy. I agree with you on that point. The problem I've encountered with Owen specifically is that I've yet to find a good full-body photo of him with taller actors. I prefer the full shots because it's then easier to make good judgments when you see the peoples' footwear.

Funny thing: in SIN CITY, when Owen has Del Toro in a chokehold in Brittany Murphy's apartment, Owen does look taller than Del Toro but keep in mind that Owen is holding him from behind, thus bending Del Toro's spine.

Yeah, 6'1 1/4" - 6'1 1/2" sounds right for Owen. Good call.


P.S.--If you go into YouTube, type in "Benicio Del Toro West Hollywood" you should get a link to a two-minute clip of Del Toro leaving a West Hollywood bistro. The man towers over everybody in this clip.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 4/Nov/11
thebad7 you're right about Benicio Del Toro (even if i'm pretty convinced he's more 6'1.75 than 6'2)... Clive Owen actually never looked over 6'1 to me. Have you seen the pics i posted? how the hell are these 5 inches? Pics next tim Robbins proof that too. IMO he's not over 6'1, maybe 6'1.25 in the morning but no more!
ANDREA[ITA] said on 3/Nov/11
Why not? In the pic with don cheadle he looks 6'0.5, so im also being generous! With naomi watts he looks max 185! With tim robbins he looks 185! You want pics to proof it? I could work on it but if you say you gonna ignore them i neither start the work!
ANDREA[ITA] said on 3/Nov/11
So, rob did you see that hes no more than 6'1 in reality?
Editor Rob
he can look 6ft 1, but sometimes I think he looks near 6ft 2.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 2/Nov/11
Rob downgrade him to 6'1, please! Hes maybe 6'2 in shoes but no more!
Editor Rob
if I changed his height it'd be a weak 6ft 2, I'm not sure he's just 6ft 1.

Rob admitting don cheadle is really 173 ( i actually think hes a bit lower than that), where do you see 15 cms? I see 10-11 in the first pics, considering that clive is even closer to the camera! He doesnt look over 6'0.5, next to tim robbins too!

clive is not taller than 187cm and he is taller than 6'0.5 benicio del toro who is about 6'2 in dress shoe markshot in The Usual Suspects. min 186 max 187.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 26/Oct/11
Rob, answer this: how you explain he doesnt look muc taller than naomi watts in heels? There was an italian actor in the movie with her and looked noticeably taller than and this actor is 187 max! :)
Editor Rob
a fraction shy of 6ft 2 could be a nearer guess for him, at times he can look anywhere from 6ft 1 up to 6ft 2.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 24/Oct/11
Rpb what about 6'1.25 for clive?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure on 186, but he could be a weak 6ft 2.

186cm is possible. He was a little taller than Michael Caine.

here with Naomi Watts:

she's probably wearing heels that give her 8 cms over her barefoot height! so she's around 172, he's 14 cms taller than her! if you take away his 2 cms of shoes, he's 184 and 184-185 is what he looks next to Tim Robbins! The listed height is probably with shoes on!
ANDREA[ITA] said on 23/Sep/11
o yeah! just believe it James :) you've gone so out of mind! sometimes i think somebody uses your name but thats just an hope :)

looks 6'0.75 with Tim Robbins, with 5'11(is he really that tall?) Jude Law he looks max 2 inches taller! 6'1 is about right for Clive Owen!
James said on 15/Sep/11
i am not sure if he's as low as 187cm?
ANDREA[ITA] said on 12/Sep/11
He claimed 187 so i doubt hes more than that! 186-187 is right! Anything more is just insane...
James said on 11/Sep/11
I doubt he's taller than 6'2
TallJohn said on 10/Sep/11
Definitely at least 6'2", he towers over Keira Knightley (5'7") in King Arthur, and just about everyone else in the cast. I say probably close to 6'3".

NOT standing well he looks 185, maybe standing straight he looks max 187!

Yeah he looks 6'2-6'3! Ahahha and will smith is 189!

I don't acutally think Clive is between 6'2-6'3 but i am just saying he can look it with robbins thats all.

Not quite sure on Will Smith's height?

ANDREA[ITA] said on 27/Aug/11
He just looks 6ft1 max everywhere, not only with Tim Robbins! Tim is just one of the few honest guys that show real celebs' heights! Just show me a pic where Clive looks more than 185... He looks max 2 inches taller than Jude Law, so max 6ft1 but Jude is not 5ft11... He looks 2 inches taller than Julia Roberts! He struggles to reach 6f2 in shoes... -.- He looks evens shorter than 186-187 Benicio Del Toro...
James said on 27/Aug/11
ANDREA[ITA] says on 25/Aug/11
Yeah, james! I thought you were one of the few honest guys on this site, think that i read your comment to know a celeb's height i looked for your comment and trusted you! But after reading all will smith's comments, clive owen's and other ones, im changing idea! Clive owen never looked particularly tall! In the international he looked max 6ft1 with naomi watts! With tim robbins, slouched like you say looks almost 10 cms shorter, maybe upstraight he'd look 187 but that's his max!

I agree in his films Clive Owen looks more 187cm than 189cm but with Robbins he looks easily 188cm. there is not a big difference between him and tim in the pics. just a 2.5-3 inch difference.

Hard too belive there is a 3-3.5 gap between the 2 in the pics.

Overall he appears at least 6'2 next too big tim.

He's no more than 186, in fact in movies he never looked more than 6ft1... You should downgrade him, Rob! Tall guy but for sure no more than a strong 6ft1!

As usual not taking into account that clive is not standing at his tallest compared too robbins :) Even with poor posture he looks 187cm if tim is 195cm and 189cm if he stood like robbins.

When he stands properly next too Robins there looks a 6cm difference.

Yep must be 188cm if Robbins is 195cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/11
Robbins is 195cm or 6ft4.75. So James if Clive is 2.5-3in below that, he's 6ft2 on the nose
5'8.56784 said on 25/Jul/11
He's 6'1.5, 6'2 on a good day. Tim Robbins might not be a full 6'5, but hell he's really close to that mark.
James said on 19/Jul/11
Andrea in some photos of him and robbins clive is not standing at his tallest. 6'2 is still possible for clive.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 18/Jul/11
James i agree with you most of the time! but now i cant! there are strong 8-9 cms difference between them! clive owen could be 187, but tim robbins is strong 6ft5!
James said on 17/Jul/11
Clive Owen looks like he could be 1-1.5 inches under the 6'3 mark.

To me there looks a 2.5-3 inch gap between him and robbins.

Tim Robbins 6'4.5 (194cm)
Clive Owen 6'1.75 (187cm)
James said on 28/Jun/11

He was terrific in SIN CITY and in DERAILED. He's a tall guy, but I don't think he's quite 6'2"--I think he's more a strong 6'1". Benicio Del Toro looked to have about 1" on him.

Richard said on 22/May/11
No one has a constant height. Owen is probably 6'2" in the morning and between 6'1" and 6'1.5" in the evening.

Shaun said on 26/Feb/11
David Schwimmer is 6'0.5" so Owen is 6'1.5-6'2". Benicio del Toro could be 189cm based on the fact he was about the same height as Robert Davi in his prime and how he looks compared to Tim Robbins
Shaun said on 26/Feb/11
Definitely has the 6'2 dark and suave James Bond type thing going on. 187-188 range. He would look 6 ft 2 to most.

Schwimmer is 6'0. Clive is 6'1.

Though Clive can look way taller than 6'1 in movies. I swear he can give off an impression of closer to 6'4. He looked really tall in the International.

He walked by me in London in suite and normal shoes. He is about my height. I was expecting smaller but I would say 6'1 barefoot. No taller. He is tall but not too tall and he has quite poor posture.

Poor posture is why he appeared 6'1 max
cl00ney said on 8/Apr/09
in the International he looks no more than 182...strange...
Doug said on 1/Apr/09
Mmm he has looked shorter than other 6'2 listed guys too. NOt by much but 187 certainly isn't unimaginable or 186 either.
\-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 21/Mar/09
Okay 181cm-182cm is a bit extreme for Ross.
Candyman said on 14/Mar/09
I see a maximum of 6'1".5 judging from the benicio del toro pic and poor posture in the glen pic.
Doug said on 13/Mar/09
I see what you mean cb in that picture. Benicio del Torro looks 6'4" in comparison. If Owen is only 186 though Jonathan Ross is 181-182 and we know that Ross is NEVER below 6 foot barefoot.
Doug said on 13/Mar/09
In the above picture he is clearly not standing fully straight, he is leaning which is why he only looks 186-187 cm here.
Doug said on 13/Mar/09
Yes he has poor posture which would account for a 6'1" sighting. The guy has 1.5 inches on Jonathan Ross. Owen strikes me as the sort of guy who couldn't care less about his height. He is a legit 6'2" I think, he looks it here too.
bobo said on 8/Mar/09

hey guys, what I find really great is, that a lot of actors who are really not the same height, are listed the same height on this site. Take Benicio Deltoro and Clive Owen. Benicio is obviously taller than clive and listed as 6'2". Sure Clive Owen is very tall looking guy (The International)but take a look at this.
Click Here
Take a look at the eyelevel of both.
Tim Robbins is 6'4" and towers clive by almost 4inches. Do the maths.

Clive is 186cm at most. Probably a 6'1" flat.
