He has always looked 5'9 to me I think 5'9.75 is probably a quarter inch taller than I am.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Sep/23
5'9" and a half I reckon, maybe 5'10" earlier in the day..
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 16/Sep/23

I don't think he's a flat 5'9, show me a pic where he's looked that short. At least 176cm but no more than 177cm if we are talking evening height.

FE, I've seen some pretty wild listings on that site, so I wouldn't trust it at all!
viper said on 17/May/23
IMO 5-9
Jordan87 said on 16/May/23
Oddly enough He is listed as 5'8 and 147 In the Miami Vice Movie ( 2006) when the Main Villain is doing a background check on him on the computer screen.

They shaved two inches off his real height and listed him at 147 pounds?.....He was a min. 160-170 pounds during that film. very Odd lol

@Editor Rob,

He’s Listed 178cm on his CV.
Click Here

It’s written in Italian, but is this Legit?
Editor Rob
Not sure, but early in his career he had the 5ft 10 in the spotlight casting book.
John marks said on 15/Mar/23
Rob, what would be his morning vs evening height?
I am 179.7 cm in morning after a good sleep and range around 177.7-178 cm at night, would you class me as 177.8 cm or 178.5?
Editor Rob
He might be one of those actors who is a little shy of 5ft 10 and maybe by night falls to 5ft 9.5-9.75 range.
stiggles said on 12/Mar/23
Mr Farrell is no more than 5ft 9 ..
MD said on 18/Jan/23
I'm assuming they are on the same level, here, so even accounting for tilts/slouches, is 5'11"(ish) Brad Pitt in some lifts, here? I'm being generous, though, because I've never believed Colin is a full 5'10", though.

Editor Rob
He can make Colin look weak 5ft 10, which a fair chunk of people estimate him at. Usually most guesses are 5ft 9.5 up to 10.
mcguigan11 said on 4/Aug/22
No way this guy is under 5'10". Look at the cast pics from his recent movie premieres - he is as tall as or taller than the actors listed around 5'11".
JayJay said on 29/Jun/22
Had never looked more than 5’9” flat, and is probably less.
Sree Smith said on 28/Jun/22
Rob,I think Colin Ferrell in wired interview said "5ft 10" flat
Editor Rob

I thought he was jokingly whispering three quarter.
Okidoki said on 9/May/22
@Rob Personally, that is the highest i would ever give him, but i think you're listing of 5'9 is really good for him. Afternoon 5'9-175.5 cm seems likely for me. Many think Colin is just 5'9.5, but i disagree with that, he just gives a feeling of a guy somewhere in the 177 cm range, in the movie i mentioned particularly. I doubt he is below that.
Okidoki said on 8/May/22
@Rob In the movie Miami Vice, do you think that Farell looks the listed height besides Jamie Foxx?

Overall, i agree with the average guess, i think Foxx is 175.5 in the afternoon most likely.
Editor Rob
If I give Fox 9.25 it might be closer to what the difference looks, which can seem less than an inch.
Rising174cm said on 30/Apr/22
When Colin and Jamie wore similar shoes, they could even look the same height: Click Here Click Here Definitely not a full 5'10" as he claimed. More like 5'9.5" and rounded up.
IceCold said on 19/Apr/22
5'9 1/2
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 29/Mar/22
I give him 5’9 1/2”, since he appeared half of an inch taller than Jamie Foxx. Jamie Foxx isn’t 5’9 1/4”, given how Eddie Murphy is that height, and he had Foxx by 1/4” of an inch.
The Height Guy said on 2/Mar/22
Hey Rob, here is a photo from the batman premiere with john turturro and colin farrell they look like they are the same height, do you think colin is wearing lifts or is it just the camera angle? Click Here
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 24/Feb/22
179cm out of bed, 177cm evening height I reckon. He'd edge me out but barely.
Dmeyer said on 1/Feb/22
From wath i Saw in person 177-178cm is likely 176 too small and 179 too Tall , looking at him with willis hé Can look 1-3in shorter Willis was at Peak 11.5ish plus stood as Tall as possible , i Can see a 5-9.5-9.75 arguments But not not 5-9 or 10.5 hé defenerly 1,5-2,5cm over foxx , and foxx in person strong 5-9 just over 5-9 is likely , as he makes many men look shorter than listed liké DiCaprio and tatum
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 25/Jan/22
I think he deserves a quarter inch downgrade Rob. He's never looked the full 5'10.
Rising174cm said on 9/Dec/21
I've never heard of or seen Bruce wearing lifts. Maybe in Moonlighting when he sometimes wore cowboy boots, but there's no reason he would have in Hart's War. Willis wouldn't have been much, if anything, more than 5'11" by that point. A few years later, 5'9" Justin Long in Converse could look similar to how Farrell looked with Willis.

@Sree Smith: When they wore similar shoes, Colin and Jamie looked the same height: Click Here Click Here As I showed, a 62 year old Don Johnson(listed 5'9.25") could look taller than Farrell did with Foxx.
Bradley said on 7/Dec/21
Looked 5'9" with Bruce Willis in Hart's War but Willis might have been wedged.
Sree Smith said on 25/Nov/21
Rob ,he can look 1 inch taller than Jamie foxx in rare pics.
Rising174cm said on 13/Nov/21
177 cm max, but most likely 5'9.5". Look at my posts on on 28/Dec/20 and on 26/Jan/21 to see him looking the same height in full pics with 5'9" Jamie Foxx and Jared Leto. Don Johnson has since been downgraded to 5'9.25" and could look taller in a full pic with Foxx. I'd give Johnson more 5'9" flat myself. Colin's footwear sometimes gives him an advantage.

Roby Italy, that guy appeared in the original Miami Vice aswell back in the 80's

I think near 6ft1 is possible

Definitely at least a strong 5’10 with 5’8 1/2 - 5’9 Max Greenfield Click Here honest guy
MaskDeMasque said on 22/Feb/21
Rob, do you really think he's the full 5'10? He's never looked this tall in any film or photo.

I think he's slightly more than 5'9.5 though but I dunno about 5'9.75. I'd go with 5'9 and 5/8ths for Colin.
Editor Rob
if he falls under 5ft 9.75 could be possible, but just 5ft 9.5...I never saw enough to go with that figure.
Rising174cm said on 26/Jan/21
177 cm would be a much better listing although I still say 5'9.5" without boots. There's virtually no difference in this full photo with 5'9" Jared Leto: Click Here In fact, any difference that exists looks like it would disappear if Jared stood as straight as Colin. Also, Chris Pine, who claims 6' and is listed here at 6'0.5" looks a good 3" taller than Colin: Click Here Even if Foxx and Leto are 176 cm, Colin looks no taller than 176-177 range in full photos with them.
Slim 6'1" said on 14/Jan/21
About 177cm putting him at a weak 5’10” like Matt Ryan and Andrew Lincoln 👍
Rising174cm said on 28/Dec/20
Vibram is right. Colin is maybe 5'9.5", but no more. He looked no taller than an honest 5'9" Jamie Foxx in full pics at separate events: Click Here Click Here For reference, 5'9.5" listed Don Johnson could look as tall or taller with Jamie at age 62: Click Here Also, imo, there's ample evidence showing Johnson was never over 5'9" flat himself. Colin has sometimes favored 2" heels and cowboy boots throughout his career yet never really looked over 5'10" even with them. Rewatching In Bruges again recently, I could see him at only 5'9.5" in some shots with Brendan Gleeson. Great movie, btw.
Vibram said on 5/Nov/20
176cm-177cm guy.

Colin’s usually looks to be in the 5’9.5” to 5’10” range.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Oct/20
I'm watching 'Seven Psychopaths' for the first time since I've been coming along to Celebheights, and it's very funny - in the blackest type of ways. 🤭

It takes me right back to an interview I either saw on TV or read, in which Colin said that meeting and acting with Christopher Walken was an experience and a half and he had never met such a magical fellow.

This told me a great deal about Colin as a person. He must be a thoroughly genuine guy to speak like that about his fellow actor and now friend, no doubt.

Good on you, Colin!

5ft9.75 😄👍

In "The Killing Of A Sacred Deer" he looks like a strong 5'9 weak 5'10. Im guessing 5'9.75 for him. Great actor!!

Definately a 5"9 guy just like johny depp
Phil Darren said on 12/Jan/20
Pretty confident he wakes up around that 179cm mark and drops to the 177.5cm before bed. If that’s the case would you claim 5’10 or 5’10.5. Your thoughts BigRob?
RJC said on 10/Oct/19
175cm-176cm max
pov said on 8/Oct/19
Wow, I always thought of him as a 5”11 type of guy. Like 181cm. Looks taller on screen maybe
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Oct/19
Click Here Eddie Redmayne is 2" taller Farrell from their top of head to head comparison
Canson said on 22/Sep/19
@Junior: the better angle may be that Foxx is a legit 5’9”. I see a lot of people here say that he’s under the mark just as we do over it. You also have to remember that a lot of guys claim 5’10” that are really 5’8”. Meaning if Foxx claims 5’9” and actually is that height, it outs the other guy who is fibbing
Rising174cm said on 21/Sep/19
@Chris: That's entirely possible for all three, although I wouldn't say Foxx and Leto are listed incorrectly. Rather, it's basically 50/50 between a solid 175 and 176 cm for them. Back when the Miami Vice film came out in the mid 2000s, Jamie didn't really look above 5'9" flat and occasionally even looked shorter, but the more I see Jamie the last 5 years, he really does generally look taller than 5'9" flat and can sometimes even pass for a 5'10" guy now. Whether that's because Jamie began wearing lifts as his star was rising or because he was always a 5'9.25" guy is the question, but either way, Colin is not as much as 2 cm taller than Jamie, much less an inch. As you can see, Foxx and Farrell look the same height when both wore dress shoes at both the UK premiere and the Hollywood premiere in full pics from a straight angle and no noticeable camera advantages. As for Leto, sometimes he measures up better than a 5'9" flat guy typically would to 5'10"-5'11" range guys, but other times, he looks 5'9" flat such as with Christoph Waltz because I don't buy for a second that Waltz is 171 cm because he claimed 170 cm himself. But again, Colin and Jared look more or less the same height in a full pic from a straight angle and Jared's boots have a small heel no bigger than those on Colin's dress shoes. So even if Jamie and Jared are 176 cm, you're right to put Colin no taller than 177 because looking the same height in those full photos suggests maybe 1 cm between them, but not 2, much less an inch.

Pearce definitely seems taller than Farrell and again there's probably a 50/50 chance between 5'10" and 5'10.25" for Pearce since he claimed 178 cm and iirc, he was slightly shorter than 179 cm Russell Crowe. I'm not as familiar with Jane, though I would say Pearce seems a bit taller proportionately and can give a taller impression. Your point still remains though in that those guys are what honest 5'10" guys look like while Colin is clearly not that tall. I stand by 5'9.5" for Colin, but 5'9.75" is probably the safest listing for now. But an honest 5'10" man will stand out like Pearce or Jane because most actors who claim 5'10" are 5'8"-5'9" range or at best 176-177 cm range. Hell, some like Jeremy Piven and arguably Justin Bieber aren't even 5'8"! On the other hand a solid 5'10" will usually claim 5'11" like Patrick Swayze and Daniel Craig, 6'0" or even extremes like 5'10" flat Dean Martin claiming 6'1" or you have 5'8.5"-5'9" range actors such as Mario Lopez, Johnny Depp and Wesley Snipes claiming 5'11" or more commonly a solid 5'9" like Leto. A solid 5'10" can look tallish at times so if the solid 5'10" man is also honest then people will regularly insist the 5'10" man is taller than they claim. Similarly, regardless of whether Foxx is 5'9" flat or 1/8" to 1/4" over like Rob, what really makes him seem taller is that he's honest and claims 5'9". Now does Colin really seem like a similar case? Literally nobody outside of Glenn thinks Colin is even a fraction over like Jamie possibly is, much less 5'11"+ with the single exception of Glenn and funny enough, Glenn claims to be exactly 1.5" taller than he really is and if you subtract 1.5" from his estimate for Colin, you get 5'9.5", which actually still means he's pretty honest, especially since many don't bother with half inches and simply round, though Colin has apparently started with that recent 5'10.75" claim, which is most likely in shoes and when was the last time we saw Colin wear shoes less than an inch? More on that later.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Sep/19
@Rising I have long suspect on Jared Leto and Jamie Foxx were more 176cm guy and Colin 177cm all their low. In fact it was Rob listed three of them wrongly. Colin never look more proper 5'10 like Guy Pearce and Thomas Jane both look to be fraction over 178cm guy than a flat 5'10, it will be interesting to see one of them look solid 1/2 on Colin if make a comparison.
Rising174cm said on 11/Sep/19
I don't think he's under 5'9.5" either, but I happen to think that's his height. 177 cm would be his max. In fact, Chris, Colin has looked less than 1/2" taller than Jamie in even footwear such as the Miami Vice UK premiere where they looked the same height in a full pic no less: Click Here Click Here They look the same height, no? And pretty much the same thing at the Westwood/LA premiere where they're again the same height in a full pic with both in dress shoes: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here

This may not be the best pic, but it is a full pic of Jamie in sneakers and Colin in pretty thick boots and a hat from their TRL appearance: Click Here

And here's a more recent full pic of Colin looking about the same height as Jared Leto, who is listed at 5'9" just like Jamie: Click Here

Even if Jamie and Jared are both more like 176 cm, that still puts Colin at 176.5 to 177 cm max. I just don't see how he can be a full 5'10" since he never looks that tall unless he has thick boots or cowboy type heels and that type of footwear should make a full 5'10" man look over 5'10" or at least 179-180 cm range, which he never does. 5'9.75" would be a much more likely listing, just like with Matt Damon. Colin's 5'10" claim was a round up and his more recent 5'10.75" claim is surely includes footwear. There's not really any noticeable difference between Colin and solid 5'9" guys like Foxx and Leto and he looks 5'9.5" more than anything else, but I could see the 5'9.75" as the most conservative listing.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Jul/19
I don't see him look shorter than 5'9 1/2 too. Its just that i don't see 178cm falls on him, he look alot like 177cm a low unlike 5'10 claim Thomas Jane can easily pull off over 5'10 in every occasion and look at least 178cm a low.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/Jul/19
Rob, you know well that Colin Farrell has never look 5'10 without more footwear next to strong 5'9 Jamie Foxx and there is a max 2cm sometime only 1/2" between them when they got leveled heels footwear. Farrell deserved a little downgrade. He can look big 5'9 plus guy but not a big 5'10.
Editor Rob
Colin's lowest I'd guess is just under 5ft 10...I never thought he looked as short as 5ft 9-9.25 in anything he's been in, though I can understand 5ft 9.5 estimates for him.
Harley Imms said on 12/Jul/19
5'9.5-5'9.75 range. Prob closer to the 3/4. He never looks the full 5'10 imo.
Canson said on 6/Jul/19

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/May/19
Farrell is weak 5'10 but not under 177cm if Jamie Foxx is only solid 5'9.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Apr/19
I think Colin looks gorgeous with a beard, and as for his performance in 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer', it's the best I've seen him in to date.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Apr/19
I watched a very disturbing film yesterday and today called 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer'. Colin was a sensation as a bearded heart surgeon, who has befriended a disturbed 16-year-old boy, but little does he know what's on the boy's agenda.

Colin plays the husband of opthalmologist Nicole Kidman, and at all times, even when she's in flats, you can see she's the taller of the two. Let me tell you, this film is WEIRD! It starts off comically enough, but which father mentions to his colleague that his daughter just started menstruating the week before, even if they are in the medical profession? 😲

I found this film amongst a run-down of Films Too Disturbing to see Twice. Well, I've blown that theory straight out the window, as I'm seeing the bearded Colin again this evening! 😜

5ft9.75 of sheer acting talent and mystery!

Rising - 174 cm said on 31/Jan/19
Jamie Foxx wasn't the only guy Colin looked 5'9.5" max with. Colin also struggled to look taller than Jared Leto and I thought Colin looked under 5'10" with Brendan Gleeson even before Gleeson was downgraded half an inch so it's a good time to revisit that comparison: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here As for Tom Hanks, he looks no less than 2" taller than Colin in this full pic: Click Here and Hanks was definitely not taller than 5'11.5" when this photo was taken. If Colin was a full 5'10", he'd look 5'10.5"-5'11" a fair amount with the type of heeled boots he often wears and that's not considering he's been caught more than once going way up on his toes like Jeremy Piven. In fact, Colin looks under 5'10" more often than he looks over it. I'm interested to see how he measures up p to Mel Gibson when they film War Pigs.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Jan/19
I thought of 5'9 1/2 see him with Jamie Foxx but without boots help he still look near 5'10 with aging Tom Hanks probably 5'11 1/4. I would have rule out 5'9 7/8 for Colin.
Rising - 174 cm said on 12/Dec/18
@MJKoP: lol true. Wahlberg should frame that one with the inscription "with my fellow 5-foot-10 actor, Colin Farrell." Colin doesn't look like he really wants to be photographed there, but still better than the shell-shocked expression in the infamous Jenny/Glenn photo.

Colin looked about an inch taller than David Beckham to me at the 2003 MTV Movie Awards: Click Here But you can see Colin is wearing cowboy-type heeled boots.

Photo: Click Here Beckham is closer, but I don't think the difference was less than an inch even with Colin's footwear advantage. Colin had loose posture throughout that night so the difference is smaller than it looks in photos. For instance, there's this photo taken that night with Marky Mark looking very happy: Click Here That must be Colin's posture otherwise Colin in cowboy-type heels would look about 2" taller than Wahlberg in dress shoes.

Slightly taller than 5'9" Jamie Foxx in the Miami Vice film, but no taller than Jamie at the UK premiere for that film and almost identical at the LA premiere, though Colin may have been slouching more at that premiere. Taller than 5'9" guys like Foxx, Leto and Ewan McGregor, but not much.
Mary said on 13/Nov/17
Well in movie with model Bridget monaghen, seemed an inch shy of her 5'10". He's probably 5'9.25" don think he's a legit 5'10" not too far from it but doesn't make it.
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Oct/17
@Slim: I said almost any. There's always exceptions, but I wouldn't say you were typical in that regard. Few that height will round down and accuracy isn't that important to most. Plus, you must have been a kid then so 5'9" range is a lot better at that age than it is for a grown man. Many really don't even think about rounding to the nearest inch and that's even more honest ones. My best friend of over 25 years measured 5'9.5" -- though it may have been an early measurement -- and doesn't care about his height, but has claimed 5'10" or "about 5-10" and I remember some years back my younger sister measured 5'6.5" and has considered herself 5'7" since. With numbers in general, you're taught if you're going to round then round up a .5 though I have no idea if anyone really even puts that much thought into it. Funny enough, my Grandfather used to insist he was 5'11.75" and if someone said "So you're basically 6 feet then?" he'd reply "Nope. five eleven and three quarters." So not everyone is a fan of rounding lol.

In Colin's case, he has been fond of big heeled boots since early in his career and has been caught tip-toeing on more than one occasion so if anything, I'm surprised he's always been listed 5'10" and claimed that. Funny enough, Jamie Foxx can almost fool me into thinking he's a 5'9.5" guy who rounds down the last 5 years or so and could look as tall as Colin.
Slim 6' said on 6/Oct/17

It is a reasonable claim, but a round up, imo. Almost any 5'9.5" guy will round up to 5'10" and many will try 5'11".
I disagree. When I was 176.5/5'9.5 I claimed 5'9"/176 because half intervals are unnecessary tbh.

he seems honest about his height, he didn't claim 5'11 or 6' like many other actors would.
Rising - 174 cm said on 22/Sep/17
He couldn't get away with claiming six feet. At least not while standing next to Jamie Foxx who claims 5'9": Click Here

And certainly not standing next to a man like Chris Pine who claims 6 feet himself! Click Here
Rising - 174 cm said on 21/Sep/17
177 cm max, imo. He can look about the same height as 5'9" range guys and doesn't look to have the frame of a more solid 5'10" like Guy Pearce. Looking at 5'9" Jared Leto with Colin again, Leto's boots don't look to have a big heel. Does he really have an advantage over Colin there?: Click Here
Heightster said on 19/Sep/17
One of THE RARE in Hollywood -- Colin speaks the truth about his height and weight. Met him twice. Solid 5' 10" bare foot and 165lbs. Given his excellent proportions, dark looks and perfect hair, he can actually claim 6 feet, but remains modestly confident in his respectable stature. Slightly wild but good bloke.
Rising - 174 cm said on 20/Aug/17
Does Colin edge Ewan McGregor by a fraction or is he just standing a bit better? Click Here Honestly, in this pic from the same event, Colin only looks about 4" taller than Woody Allen: Click Here Even if we gave Woody his peak height of 5'5", Colin is strangely only looking 176 cm or so there and Ewan appears to edge him, but Colin appears taller in this pic: Click Here I think Colin is taller than Ewan, but this video from a different event actually shows the opposite: Click Here

In general, I think Colin could be 177 cm max, but no taller and Ewan I'd say is 176 cm, but nothing over it. It's not another example of Colin looking very similar to guys around 5'9' like Jamie Foxx and Jared Leto or similar to a probable 5'9" and change guy like Woody Harrelson. I'm still convinced Colin is a 5'9.5" guy, but with the type of boots he often wears, he can pass for 5'10". I'm having trouble seeing a full 5'10", though because the bigger heels and thicker boots should have him looking 179-180 cm quite a bit and I don't really see that.
traq said on 2/Aug/17
wait if colin said that he was 5'10 does that mean he shrump
RisingForce said on 6/Jul/17
I've never been sold on Woody being a flat 5'9". Colin looked like he might edge out Foxx at the LA premiere if he stood straight, though they did admittedly look the same height at the UK premiere with similar posture and shoes. Colin was still shorter than Leno who was 5'10.25"-5'10.5" max in 2012: Click Here and this was in some healthy sized cowboy boots: Click Here Click Here That also suggests a full 5'10" is too high as he should have looked at least as tall as Leno with a minimum half inch footwear advantage. Big heels on that show have been the norm for Colin going back to at least 2003: Click Here Click Here

5'9" flat is too low, he's an easy 5'10" in the morning and likely a legit 5'9.5", imo.
burby said on 24/Jun/17
Same height as Foxx and Woody. Serious tip toeing with ladies in heels....he's 5'9".
Slim 181 cm said on 23/Jun/17
Anything less than 177 is a joke!
RisingForce said on 5/May/17
Colin looks pretty short here with 5'11" Donald Faison and 5'11.5" Zach Braff: Click Here Both are slouching, Colin is pushing down on their shoulders and potentially has more footwear as his jeans cover his shoes, yet he's still shorter than both. I'd think a legit 5'10" would look taller next to 2 men under 6 feet. Here's a still and promo pic from S.W.A.T. as well with Samuel L. Jackson: Click Here Click Here I can't completely rule out the full 5'10" afternoon, but I'm thinking Colin is more a 5'10" morning guy.
RisingForce said on 4/May/17
He actually looks the same height as Foxx at the UK premiere as I posted below, both in dress shoes. They look basically the same height at the LA premiere as well, but Colin looked to have looser posture there so I could buy him a half inch taller. Colin only looked 3/4" taller when he had thick boots and Foxx had sneakers: Click Here This was before Jamie's apparent late growth spurt. He was usually not looking taller than his 5'9" claim back then, as you could see with Bruce Willis who looked at least 2" taller and Tom Cruise, who in dress shoes with no more than 1" lift max, looked within 1 cm of Jamie. This adds up with how Colin looks with another 5'9" guy Jared Leto. They're basically the same height depending on whether Leto gets a 1/4" advantage from his boots to Colin's dress shoes or if he's losing a fraction more from his posture. Here, Bryan Cranston in Converse with loose posture actually edges out Colin standing straight in cowboy boots: Click Here Although other times Colin cowboy boots looks as tall as Cranston in dress shoes. I'd give Colin 5'10" morning, but if Jamie is 5'9" on the nose, I can't give Colin more than 5'9.5". He can often look from 5'9" to 5'10". I saw some of S.W.A.T. on TV recently and Samuel L. Jackson pretty much towered over Colin by at least 4", sometimes 5". The height variation is probably due to the fact that Colin often wears boots and at times favors cowboy boots and up to 2" Cuban heels plus you can find a few photos of him tip-toeing at premieres.
S.J.H said on 2/May/17
He doesn't look full inch taller than jamie foxx. If foxx is really 5'9 , he would be 5'9.75 max and even could be 5'9.5
RisingForce said on 8/Apr/17
Typically looks similar with 5'9" Jared Leto, but here Leto's boot should give him a fraction more so 5'9.5" seems spot on here: Click Here
RisingForce said on 7/Apr/17
I wouldn't be surprised, he could look very similar to Jamie Foxx who only claims 5'9". Here's a full shot in similar shoes at the UK premiere:
Click Here Same thing at the LA premiere with both in dress shoes again: Click Here Click Here Colin only looked noticeably taller by near an inch when he had a boot advantage to Jamie's sneakers, which adds up with Colin 5'9.5" barefoot to Jamie's 5'9". Foxx can look taller than 5'9", but also can look shorter. In reality, we can be pretty sure he's a legit 5'9", which makes him an ideal measuring stick for Colin, especially with multiple premieres and multiple full body shots in similar shoes as well as video. You can argue a full 5'10" for Colin, but then a 5'9.5" guy can easily look 5'10" with boots, which Colin often wears. There's a pretty narrow range you can argue with Colin since he claimed 5'10" and studio publicity always listed him at that making it his max, but he's also clearly not below 176 cm at any point.
Heylo said on 6/Apr/17
Surprised at the average guess. To me he always looked like a 177-178cm person just like the listing. He is very likeable in interviews, intelligent and humble, one of those ideal guys for any serious woman.
RisingForce said on 5/Apr/17
However 6'1" Brendan Gleeson can almost dwarf Colin: Click Here Part of it is Gleeson's large frame, but even Colin's head only looks an inch above Gleeson's eyes. Though if Gleeson was still more 6'1.5" there then Colin would still look a good 176 cm. In reality, that could only be his absolute low, imo.
RisingForce said on 1/Apr/17
Yeah, I'm sure Colin is at least 5'10" in the morning, but 5'9.5" midday would explain more why Colin looked almost identical in height to Jamie Foxx when both had similar shoes. I saw a but of Minority Report on TV a few days ago and Max Von Sydow who was around 6'2" range by that time did dwarf Colin.
Johan said on 25/Mar/17

Chris Pine looked 3 inches taller at the very least: Click Here Certainly their claims of 5'10" and 6' don't quite add up there, but it's funny that both are pretty honest and that's what happens when one rounds up a half inch and the other rounds down the same amount.

Exactly, nice find. Colin is 5'9.5" and Pine is 6'0.5".

Here Colin is wearing boots with big heels with Woody Harrelson who is listed here at 5'9.5" and many think is 5'9": Click Here Click Here Colin is standing casually for the first pic, but Woody has flat shoes and is even more hunched for the second pic. I bet they're about the same height barefoot with good posture. All things considered, rounding up from 5'9.5" to 5'10" is completely normal He can look a bit taller because he's worn very large heels like this: Click Here and this is one occasion where he actually seemed to be wearing lifts to me, but more importantly, this looks like at least the second time I've seen him tip-toeing! Click Here He may be a bit more height conscious than I'd have thought.
RisingForce said on 11/Mar/17
His boots look a lot thicker than Bruce's shoes, but he really doesn't look over 5'9.5" with Willis to me: Click Here
RisingForce said on 7/Mar/17
Under 5'9" was always nonsense, but he's barely taller than Downey in his lifts: Click Here Click Here Click Here For reference, 5'10" Jude Law always looks taller next to Downey than Colin does and 176-177 cm Mel Gibson looks at least as tall.
RisingForce said on 23/Feb/17
I've long been convinced Farrell is 5'9.5", just like Matt Damon. His claim was about as honest as you could expect, merely a round up or a morning height. Both in dress shoes, he barely edges out legit 5'9" Jamie Foxx: Click Here Video of the event shows the same thing. They're close enough in height to look the same with Foxx's arm around his shoulder, but I'm sure Colin would be a fraction taller standing straight.
Realist said on 21/Feb/17
He's about 177-178 but the lifts made him look 180ish. He looked lean like 170 lbs in Fantastic Beasts.
Revisionist said on 20/Feb/17
This picture with McGregor is very good: Click Here

If McGregor is a solid 5'9.5, then Farrell edges him out and is at least 5'9.75."

I think that the reason why so many here believe that Colin's in the 175cm range is because he's not a strong 5'10 guy, but it's crazy to suggest that he's anything under 5'9."

Strong 5'9.75" for me, making his 5'10" claim very reasonable.
Victor Surratt said on 12/Feb/17

He doesn't wear lifts haha. I don't know how people see that. He always looks the same height, even in boots and often looks a tad shorter than this listing
delancey said on 29/Jan/17
I think this listing is spot on but he really did look shorter in Horrible Bosses! Might have been done on purpose though to suit the character he was playing.
Get the feeling he may wear lifts a bit but 5'8 like others have said is WAY too low.

Without a doubt, the same height as me. Strong 177cm in the evening. Weak 178.

Just watching minority report and he isn't the same height as Cruise, the fight scenes on the swinging platform, when they cut to side views he is noticeably taller and not with any footwear advantage. There's a lot of creative camera work to present same height but a couple of times when they properly match up the top of Cruise's head is around eyebrow height

Not even with hair and lifts is he 5 10.

I think Farrell is 5"10. Any discounting him his just pure vitriol (which I've never understood because he's a great actor and a very down to Earth person). Amongst co-stars like Al Pacino, Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Cillian Murphy, Jared Leto, Ewan McGregor, Jamie Foxx, Sam Rockwell and Ben Wishaw he is undoubtedly taller. I challenge anyone to find a more accurate 5"10.

5'10" in shoes or boots for him,. decent height since he works out he looks muscular/lean which might give him some height in movies.

He's wearing what look like cowboy boots on this season of True Detective, and still looks a good 7 inches shorter than Vince Vaughn. I'm guessing Colin is more in the strong 5'9" category, just don't see him hitting a full 5'10" when being measured.
Gregory Barbosa said on 29/Jun/15

I guess Rob's right. He looks 1-2cm or at times the exact same height as Ewan Mcgregor who's 177cm.

At most, rounding up like most people do anyway. 177-178cm for Colin.

I thought he looked more 1-1.5 than a full 2 inches over Sam Rockwell. Despite their height loss, it looked like Tom Waits and definitely Christopher Walken were still taller than him as well. In general, though, I think he looks pretty close to the 5'10" mark. He should stick to Martin McDonaugh movies or comedies like Horrible Bosses, I find him kind of annoying in other films at times.

5'10 is a decent enough claim, but he looks like a 5'9.5 guy a lot - rounding up to his morning height of around 5'10 isn't bad compared to a lot of other hollywood claims - but never the less he should be listed 5'9.5. 6'0.5 Chris Pine has a good 3 inches on him: Click Here
Heylo said on 16/May/14
What does it take to get you downgrade someone? Colin Farrell is absolutely not 178cm. If he was he would look much taller on the big events which he never does. The photos with Jamie Foxx (listed as 5'9, he is probably 174 since Foxx himself said "i'm like 5'9" which means that he rounded up. I'm not sure of Farrells height but he is definitely under 178cm.
RisingForce said on 14/Apr/14
He really does look around his claim, or at worst, he's a half inch under and rounding up. Looks completely average and despite the big heeled boots he's sometimes worn and the tip-toeing photos, I don't think he's a lift guy.
Balrog said on 26/Mar/14
5'9.5" . A typical average guy who wears boots a lot
Kurtz Pull said on 21/Mar/14
Watching Total Recall right now on HBO. His upper body looks very short compare to his legs. In the anti-gravity scene where he escapes the bot-cops, there is a clear view of his footwear. Memory lapsed Hauser was standing tall on 2.5 inches hills. Who knows what he was wearing on the inside. And despite of that, listed 5'10.5" Bryan Cranston appeared a good 2 inches taller than him.
Collin has quick shutter fiery, intense eyes and a small feminine nose topped by oft-tormented brows but he doesn't even reach average height in reality. My guess is 5'8.25 for the dude. He also looked visibly shorter than 5'9" listed Jamie Fox in Miami Vice.
Heylo said on 17/Mar/14
I Also think he looks more 5'9 than 5'10. He can keep up with the 5'11 actors because he often uses these massive boots which will give him twice as much height. That's why he looks 5'11 with boots next to a legit 5'11 guy with dressing shoes (6ft).

Think 5'9" range, not quite a full 5'10".

Richkid, as far as him "losing his looks", he's going to be 38 this year. While 38 isn't old, you can't expect him to still look like he's 25 anymore. Looks good for his age.
176,2Tunman said on 7/Feb/14
A hair taller than Ewan McGregor who is probably somewhere between 5'9 and 5'9.5 I would give Farrell 5'9.5-10.
lelman said on 22/Jan/14
@Rich with Sam Rockwell he looks 5'10" to me, there are a few you could cherry pick to make him look 5'8" or 5'9", but that's just normal. People fluctuate heights in photographs.

I can't see a picture of him with Justin Long on that link. He still looks 5'10" in most of those pics.

They probably wanted to make TC look taller in Minority Report, for all you know he was stood on a box in that photo. Not really good evidence.

As for the tip toe picture, again doesn't prove anything except he's insecure, which many 5'10" guys are.

He's 5'9.5"-5'10".

@RisingForce: McGregor's dropping posture in that pic with Farrell, and Farrell stands sideways. It's difficult to tell because of the hair, but still at the most I'd say they are about the same height, 176-177 cm range.

He looks a strong 5'9 or so with Chris Pine and Edward Norton for example, and the same with most other celebs that I have seen him with, when not wearing his boots.

Rob I think you should at least lower him to 5'9.75.
john b said on 24/Sep/13
Just watching Hearts War to night which stars Bruce Willis and Mr Farrell, Collin is a good 2 inches shorter then Bruce or a little bit more, if I remember Bruce is listed as 5'11'' so Collin really most be 5, 9 tops...
RisingForce said on 21/Sep/13
The difference between Colin and Ewan McGregor(listed 5'9.5" here) is about the same as the difference between Jamie Foxx who claims 5'9". Click Here

Colin definitely looks his claim if Ewan's listing is accurate. Though it does make me wonder again if Jamie Foxx is actually a fraction over 5'9". In fact, Jamie might have measured up slightly better next to Colin than Ewan does when Colin wasn't wearing boots.
Emily said on 15/Sep/13
From pics with Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale in Berlin, he is about 1" taller than both of them while these ladies wear 3" or more heels. If he is less than 5'8", Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale are less than 5'5". So, 5'9" seems reasonable.

I'd give him 5'9". A good example of a legitimate 5'10" actor is Peter Facinelli, who you can find on the site pictured with Rob. Farrell never looks quite as tall as Facinelli does to me.

Why do so many posters ascertain a height by comparing it to another actors heigh which is an extremely poor way of estimating height. How do you know the actor your comparing him to is the correct height either as most listed celeb heights are way off? The most accurate celeb estimates on this board are based on first-hand posters who have been near to and or next to the celebrity in question as I've seen those celebrities myself and can testify to their accuracy.

I really think he's no more than 5'9. I can see 5'8-ish too. He's very lean and can look taller but even when he wears his boots with massive heels he never looks more than 5'11. Can someone explain, real quick, how to post pics? Thanks.
avi said on 22/Jul/13
yeah looks his claim maybe .25 less but this is accurate.
cole said on 13/Jul/13
Rob, didn't you use to have him at 5'9.75? I think he looks more 5'9.5 range.
Editor Rob
close or 5ft 10 I think is fair for him
mistwalker said on 10/Jul/13
Cruise wear massive lifts
John said on 4/Jul/13
Tom Cruise and Colin Farrell does seem the same height in Minority Report
david said on 24/Jun/13
I would say a solid 5ft9.75 guy just a shade below 5ft 10
Lady gogo said on 23/Jun/13
I saw him last year, i was standing near him. I'm 1.75,he was just 1 inch taller than me. I think 176cm max.
cole said on 17/Jun/13
He's 5'9.5 at best, doesn't have a 5'10+ stature.
mistwalker said on 15/Jun/13
I think he's legit 5'9.5 without shoes and with regular shoes he may be 5'10.
dmeyer. said on 13/Jun/13
all of those who claim they've seen him 5'6" with shoes on are liars mayube without shoes in the pool he is 5'7 but he likes to wear boots like J.Depp and his hair touches the cloud so fully clothes he is 5'9 no questions asked
Frankie said on 8/Jun/13
Yes. Colin is 5'9. No more ...
MaskDeMasque said on 5/Jun/13

lol 5'7. He's 5'9 minimum.
Kyle said on 1/Jun/13
same height as Kiefer whos around 5'8 Click Here
Forest Whitaker towers over him Click Here
Colin is 5'9 max
penguinboy25 said on 31/May/13
This looks pretty accurate if Gabriel Macht is 6'0. This guy looked around 2 inches shorter than Macht in the Recruit, so 5'10 is probably his maximum of course we don't always know film angles and footwear..
Arch Stanton said on 21/May/13
I swear he always looked 5 ft 6 tops next to Sally in Coronation Street!
MaskDeMasque said on 20/May/13

I agree. I also saw total recall and thought he looked 177cm.
ang said on 2/May/13
I was at a sushi bar that ferrell. Was dining at. He sat about five feet away from. He is only about 5'7" at most. Also he has a very small frame and build. I was surprised. I'm only 5'2".
Linebacker28 said on 20/Apr/13
Saw Total Recall the other night. He looked 5'9.5" solid throughout the film, so the 5'10" claim seems pretty genuine. Not a bloated estimate most celebs give anyway.
Balrog said on 18/Feb/13
I remember him looking solid 3 cm taller than Renner in SWAT. That would put him at 5'9.5''. Still around 5'10''.
Joey said on 4/Feb/13
he is 176cm maybe 177cm on a good day..average height in the us, but here in germany he'd be below average :D
John said on 19/Jan/13
Rob have you seen "Cassandra's Dream"? There seems to be more than a 1 cm difference between Farrell and Ewan Mcgregor in that film
refresh said on 15/Jan/13
i am 176-175cm barefoot,in regular shoes i am 178 + my hair up and there you go just like 180cm! imagine with lifts and good body? see my point? 175-176cm:)
GC said on 11/Jan/13
I went to the database 3 years ago and the page said he is 5'8 then I went to the page in 2010 and I was surprised!!! They changed it to 5'10.. Make your own conclusions. Why his own agency would say 5'8 and then change to 5'10. It seems obvious for me.
Balrog said on 9/Jan/13
He's clearly slouching with Al Pacino. Farrell does looks around 5'10'' maybe a little bit under 176-178 range.
Steven said on 9/Jan/13
spot on with Ewan McGregor: Click Here
leonari said on 8/Jan/13
Wow. Many posters here are either delusional or plain blind. Oh yeah and very jealous of this guy. He looks 5'10 everywhere. It's really sad and pathetic that so many who have no clue about height come here and post their BS. And how on earth is 5'10 on the short side? Please...
Trey said on 6/Jan/13
He's always to be seen incowboyboots, making me doubt 5'10. 5'9.5?

Not 177cm but 178 out of bed I think he could be his height
Joey said on 1/Dec/12
i'd buy 177cm in the morning a strong 5'9 at daytime
MaskDeMasque said on 19/Nov/12
5'7??! Come on, he's at least 5'9
B said on 3/Nov/12
5'9 or so in Seven Psychopaths. Sam Rockwell is around 5'8 and Farrell usually had two inches on him, but Farrell wore cowboy boots throughout the film which gave him a noticeable advantage most likely, so 5'9 or even slightly under is probably right.
accurate said on 3/Nov/12
I was right behind him at LAX in the security line. No shoes for either of us.
Colin is no more than 5'7" in bare feet.
refresh said on 24/Oct/12
ahahaha:) 178cm?! MAYBE with his lifts and his hair up:) if you think this guy taller then 173cm barefoot then look at the sky for pink elephants:)
RisingForce said on 6/Oct/12
I'm convinced Colin and Jamie Foxx are virtually the same height. I don't think Jamie is 5'10", but he can look it, so lifts are possible. I'd go with 5'9.5" midday/evening for Colin, and perhaps 5'9.5" for Jamie, though I'll give him 176 cm like Rob mentioned. But legit 5'10" is certainly possible for Colin. He can look pretty tall, then again, he wears boots a lot and a few times wore giant heels.
RisingForce said on 24/Sep/12
I don't have any problem with you at all, Shredder. Sorry if you interpreted it that way. For what it's worth, you're one of the best posters here, imo.
RisingForce said on 22/Sep/12
Shredder, don't forget that Glenn went by morning height. Rob has said he lists celebrities at their height around lunchtime, so a 5'10" listing would make Colin about 5'10.5". And while Glenn's estimate was 5'11", he did say 5'10" was possible, he just guessed taller. So as usual, the stuff with Glenn is exaggerated, but that's all I'll say on that subject since I don't want things to get sidetracked.
RisingForce said on 22/Sep/12
Rob, in this premiere video and full body shot pics when Colin and Jamie Foxx were both in dress shoes, they really look the same height. So if you were to make a change, would it be upgrading Foxx to 5'9.5", downgrading Colin to 5'9.5" or putting them both at that height?

foxx as has been talked about in the past, could be a guy who is a fraction over 5ft 9 but just said 5ft 9, like 176 range. Farrell I think is pretty near 5ft 10
RisingForce said on 8/Sep/12
Rob, Colin's 5'10" claim is at the start of this video after the advertisement.

I thought I had posted this, but I guess I forgot.
Editor Rob
ah right, I can add it now at the top thanks...and he gave his weight which is good!
Shorty said on 3/Sep/12
I have been face to face with him, I'm 5'2" and he was only a very few inches taller. The only way he's 5' 10 is with 6" lifts. Or maybe small stilts.
frenchie said on 1/Sep/12
he looks shorter
Dmeyer said on 22/Aug/12
In person he looked 177cm but 178cm is possible
lol93 said on 18/Aug/12
Rob you have to add that he said he is 5'10 in jay leno.He was a little shorter from jay leno by 1 cm and he had bigger shoes so 177cm weak 5'10 guy
Woland said on 16/Aug/12
SAK says on 12/Feb/12
This guy feels short, see his shoes here Click Here

His body proportions reminds me of Stallones, I think Farrels height is between 5'8.5" and 5'9.5"
dd said on 5/Aug/12
i stood right next to him outside the Marquee club in NYC years ago and he was NOT taller than me and I'm 5'8". Honestly he is about 5'6". And there is nothing to be ashamed about being that height. I mean the guy has a gorgeous face.
CL said on 3/Aug/12
worked on a film with colin. spent a week standing next to him with shoes, without shoes, barefoot, etc...he's 5'10". nice guy, too.
Del said on 2/Aug/12
He was on Leno like a week ago. He said he was 5'10" & 165 lbs.
BigT said on 30/Jul/12
5´10" in shoes. 176 cm is closer.
MaskDeMasque said on 29/Jul/12
he doesn't have the proportions of a 5'10 guy. 176-177 i think.
John said on 28/Jul/12
He was on Leno last night...when he walked out, he was about a half inch shorter than 5'11 Leno, but he was also wearing cowboy boots with lifts. Halfway through the interview he referred to himself as "5 foot 10 and 165 pounds." The guy below me pointed out the same interview, but I'd say the boots were making him about 5'10.5 against Leno, so he's probably if not 5'10 then very strong 5'9...
indian fact machine said on 27/Jul/12
replied to jay leno in tonight show last night that he was 5 ft 10 but was wearing some massive boots and looked more of a 5ft9er rather than 5 ft10er..
