You weren't saying that awhile back James...but I agree he doesn't look 187cm
James said on 1/Jan/11
6'1 1/2 is extreme for firth.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Dec/10
Probably 6"0.75(185cm) at night
James said on 28/Dec/10
could be 184cm nowadays
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/10
The absolute most I could accept for this guy is 186cm
SAK said on 21/Dec/10
I think he is spot on 6ft1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/10
He didn't look 187cm next to Hugh Grant at all...

Rob this guy can't be over 6"1?

omg if the man says he is 6 foot one and a half then he is!

Then if I say "I'm 6'10" I'm really that tall. Agree?

6'1.5 is actually 186.69, so not quite 187.
There's a possibility he's around 186 (or maybe 186.5) at lowest, so he's close enough that claim.

No James...he hasn't lost height.

He's just never been taller than 6"1

Hmmm you know it could be a case of him being 6'1 peak and 6ft.05-6'0.75 today?

Certainly he looks 184cm with Nicholas Hoult.

James said on 2/Dec/10
If you look at Colin Firth with 189cm Nicholas Hoult recently he looks under 187cm. I think maybe he peaked at 6'1.5 and today is 186cm?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Dec/10
Sorry, Larc?

He looks 0.5in shorter than Hanks in that pic...But is obviously hunched
Aswell Jim Broadbent was 6"2 in his prime and is still near that height today at 186-187cm.

Face it, the man has never been over 6"1(185cm)

Ok, he does look 186-187cm with Cillian Murphy.

But, lol how is he looking eyelevel with 6"0 flat Tom Hanks?

The angle of the camera is very bad, he's also bending his legs in that photo, and despite this he still looks a bit taller than Hanks.
Here's the full pic:

6'1.25 minimum, he's taller than 6'1 Jim Broadbent.

6"1 flat or 185cm.
Hugh 191cm said on 7/Jul/09
A 'fake' 6ft2.
Hugh 190cm said on 29/Jun/09
186cm MAX. Maybe 187cm in the Morning.
Hugh 190cm said on 25/Jun/09
He's 186cm. No taller.
g said on 24/Jun/09
Colin Firth is well over 6ft and makes you feel like Tinkerbell..

maybe a woman from 5ft 7 have said that. So that doesn't say that much, a guy from 6ft would also really tower over a woman with that height.
Hugh 190cm said on 10/Jun/09
I don't buy 6ft2 for this guy at all.
Hugh 190cm said on 8/Jun/09
Lenad, Pierce Brosnan was taller than him in Mamma Mia. I'd say 6ft1-6ft1.5 max for this guy. Maybe 187cm. But no taller than that. What movie was Firth in with Carrey?
Lenad said on 5/Jun/09
A strong 6'1 possibly a weak 6'2. He looks the same height as Jim Carrey
Anonymous said on 8/May/09
Everett looks more like a 6ft3 guy in that picture. But Firth is no taller than the height he's listed at.
Paul said on 23/Apr/09
I say that's about right. In the pic below he seems to be wearing shoes that give more height than Rupert Everett while Everett doesn't seem to be standing up straight.

Hugh 190cm said on 8/Apr/09
This guy I'm not sure is quite 187cm.
Hugh 190cm said on 6/Apr/09
Okay this is everyone who I think should be downgraded and upgraded.

Downgraded:Colin Firth, Harold Ramis, Alec Baldwin, Tony Hadley, Julian Glover, Barack Obama, Laurence Fishburne, Peter Stormare, James Cameron, Bill Paxton, George Peppard, Kirk Benedict and Johnathan Ross.

Upgraded: Dominic Purcell, Pierce Brosnan, Kevin Costner (peak), Richard Harris (peak), Wentworth Miller, Sean Connery (peak), Alan Alda (peak), Hugh Jackman, Josh Holloway, John Malkovich, Billy Zane, Dan Aykroyd, John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bill Murray, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, George Clooney, Hugh Grant, John Goodman and James Cosmo.

Rob, anybody state your opinion on what you think about my suggestions or even better state your own. Your choice.
Hugh 190cm said on 6/Apr/09
Well Firth doesn't look his claimed height next to 186cm listed Pierce Brosnan. But I personally beleive Brosnan stands 6ft1.75.
Mr. R said on 3/Apr/09
He is listed at 6-1.5 in the May 2001 issue of People.
Hugh 190cm said on 27/Mar/09
Thank you Doug. Brosnan always looks taller than Firth.
Doug said on 23/Mar/09
I agree with Hugh Firth is 6ft1.25 and Brosnan is 6ft1.75. Brosnan always looks very close to 6'2" in all honesty.
Ali said on 18/Mar/09
I stood next to Colin Firth last week in London, when he gave a Q&A at the Curzon cinema after his new film 'Genova'. He is 6'1". I really scrutinised him because my husband is 6'2" so I know how it feels when I'm looking up at someone. He was only slightly shorter than my husband. I was suprised that he had a slim build, not at all "beefy". He seemed very nice, posed for lots of pics and signed loads of autographs. Very low-key. Many people walked past him in the street and didn't even notice him. Not at all starry
_-_-_-Hugh-_-_-_/ said on 3/Mar/09
Firth simply doesn't look his claimed height.
-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 18/Feb/09
Okay this what I really think. Brosnan, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, David Boreanaz, Kevin Costner and even Billy Zane are all taller than this guy. Why do I say this. Because I personally think Colin Firth is no taller than 6ft1 flat. There I said it. I want my opinion heard. Thank you.
\-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 18/Feb/09
true. But Brosnan is a tad closer to the 6ft2 mark than Firth. I'd say Firth is 187cm and Brosnan 187.5cm.
Hugh said on 6/Feb/09
I agree Lenad. Brosnan was slightly taller than him.
Lenad said on 5/Feb/09
A solid 6ft1
Hugh said on 1/Feb/09
Well he doesn't appear over 6ft1 next to Pierce Brosnan. I'd say Firth is 6ft1.25 and Brosnan is 6ft1.75.
Hugh said on 18/Jan/09
I disagree James. He looked quite wiry when he was younger. You might be confusing him with say Chris Noth or maybe Billy Zane. They have tall builds. He doesn't come across as very imposing. He looked short next to Liam Neeson.
Hugh said on 9/Jan/09
Yeah he's no less than 6ft1. But I'm not sure if he's 187cm.
Lenad said on 8/Jan/09
Hes listed at 6'1 on a few sites
Chris said on 7/Jan/09
I've stood next to him and he is definitely at least 6ft1.
Hugh said on 3/Jan/09
I'm really getting skeptical about this guy actually being 187cm. In Mamma Mia he looks 6ft1 tops, likewise in Bridget Jones 2. He looked no taller than 6ft1 listed Alan Rickman in Love Actually, Looked short next to Liam Neeson.
Hugh said on 26/Dec/08
I would've thought Pierce was thinner. Colin looks quite beefy. I'd say Pierce is taller though.
Hugh said on 14/Dec/08
That sounds fair James. I still think he's taller than Firth.
Hugh said on 13/Dec/08
No more than 187cm. Probably 186cm though.
Hugh said on 10/Dec/08
Do you think taht in the morning Brosnan could be 6ft2 or close?
Hugh said on 10/Dec/08
That sounds fair James. What about 185-186cm for Firth?
Hugh said on 9/Dec/08
Okay maybe not now. I think just 6ft1.5 now. I think he could be a little taller than Firth and Strong.
Hugh said on 7/Dec/08
Mark Strong 6ft1.5
Colin Firth 6ft1.25
Pierce Brosnan 6ft1.75
Hugh said on 4/Dec/08
Mark Strong who is listed here as 6ft1 was taller than Colin in that movie.
Hugh said on 30/Nov/08
Looks no more than 186cm.
Hugh said on 25/Nov/08
Razz you're right. But I really think he's under 6ft1. But I don't think he's 6ft1.5 either. Perhaps 6ft1.25.
Razz said on 24/Nov/08
He seems about 6'0 to 6'1 here next to uma, who seems to be slouching: Click Here
Hugh said on 21/Oct/08
Oh and Viper I'm suprised that you think every celeb on this site is like 5 inches shorter than their listed lol.
Viper said on 20/Oct/08
Im surprised you didnt think he was 6-5 Hugh.
Hugh said on 20/Oct/08
Never looked in a million years looked 6ft3!
Ange said on 19/Oct/08
Whoa, I would've put him up there with the 6'3 crowd. In "Love Actually" he seemed as tall as Neeson (can't remember if they had any scenes together). That said, the listed height seems accurate.
Hugh said on 16/Oct/08
'ish' means maybe a tad less. Anyway Firth doesn't look 6ft1.5 next to Brosnan.
Hugh said on 13/Oct/08
No 187cm is 6ft1.5 and 6ft1ish is like almost 6ft1. 6ft0.75 is 6ft1ish. Weak 6ft1.
Hugh said on 11/Oct/08
Next to Pierce he's not looking 187cm. More 6ft1ish.
Hugh said on 5/Oct/08
This guy 186cm tops.
Hugh said on 13/Sep/08
Ok James but no taller than that.
Hugh said on 8/Sep/08
He's 186cm.
Hugh said on 30/Aug/08
No. I've already stated that.
Hugh said on 28/Aug/08
Colin can look 6ft2 which is strange. He always gets described as 6ft1 or 6ft1.5. But I know for a fact he is not 6ft2.
Hugh said on 28/Aug/08
Colin isn't quite that tall James. Never met the guy but I can tell. Evidence is in BJ's diary.
Hugh said on 28/Aug/08
Fine James, But then Brosnan is 6ft1.75.
Hugh said on 26/Aug/08
6ft1.25 tops.
Hugh said on 17/Jul/08
Valerie pierce had this guy by at least an inch. 'way taller' lol.
Valerie said on 16/Jul/08
I don't know what version of Mamma Mia you watched Hugh but Colin was way taller than Pierce.
Hugh said on 4/Jul/08
watched mamma mia yesterday. Firth appeared no taller than pierce brosnan (listed 6ft1.25). Either Firth should be downgraded or Brosnan should be upgraded.
Hugh said on 29/Apr/08
He's tall but he's not 6ft2 rnage.
Marian Ambelang said on 26/Apr/08
He is by far my favorite actor. I still say that he would make a great 007. My favorite is Pride and Predudice.
I really liked him in Briget Jones diary. He's really great.
Hugh said on 8/Apr/08
Not quite 6ft2 though.
Niz said on 2/Apr/08
He is tall! If you watch the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice, you can definitely tell when he stands next to Elizabeth
Anonymous said on 2/Jan/08
This man is definitely tall. I watched Briget Jones this evening and Renee Zellweger only came a but above his shoulder even in heels. She is reportedly around 5'4..so he must be at LEAST 6 foot.
Gonzalo said on 27/Aug/07
In an interview in spanish newspaper ABC last Friday he said he is 1`87.
Cathy said on 24/Feb/07
When I saw him in Pride and Prejudice, I thought he looked only 5 foot 10 or 11! Thanks for the info.

CelebHeights Editor said on 3/Dec/05
From Daily Mail, Dec 2005: "In the flesh he is impressively tall, standing 6ft 2in"
l0ck n l0ad said on 17/Nov/05
funny! having watched bridget's diary and another movie he starred in i thought the guy was in the 6'3 - 6'4 range he actually did look tall there... oh well if he admits himself to be 6'1.5 i guess seems reasonable imho...
george said on 25/May/05
If he had shrunk, then everyone else would seem taller; however, in this case he is saying that whenever he is around Rupert Everett, Everett seems taller than usual.
