How tall is Colin Firth

Colin Firth's Height

6ft 1 (185.4 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 1 ½ (186.7 cm)
English Actor best known for roles in movies like Bridget Jones, The King's Speech, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Love Actually, A Single Man, Mamma Mia, Dorian Gray and tv mini-series Pride & Prejudice. He once said "Funnily enough, I don't usually feel like the short one - I'm 6ft 2 in and it's not often I'm looking up to someone and feeling like the little guy. But I swear Rupert's [everett] grown in 18 years". She magazine says on meeting him, "Colin Firth is well over 6ft and makes you feel like Tinkerbell.. The Sunday Telegraph quote him: "I'm fortunate enough to be the height I am [six-foot-one-and-a-half, he says]."

Rory, I'd be inclined to rate Mark as more 6ft1¾ and even the full 6ft2 looks believable for him at times. I reckon 6ft1½ has to be a low range for him while for Colin it'd be the highest I'd probably go. Mark had the edge on Colin even in Fever Pitch back in the late 90's and also on Gerard Butler in Rock 'N' Rolla.

6ft1¼ worst case peak for Colin. Same neighborhood as Brosnan, Butler and Day Lewis. Over a flat 6ft1, 6ft1½ is a reasonable listing but not above it. Strong, Hiddleston and Goode are guys approaching 6ft2. Irons and Hoult - comfortable 6ft2+
Rory said on 31/Mar/23
He was definitely shorter than Mark Strong around the Kingsman time when he was only 53, looked no more than 6ft1 in that film. Kind of hard for me to see him ever being the same height as Strong.
Jawilder said on 14/Mar/23
Probably right at 6’1 now. Looks identical to Patrick Schwarzenegger.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Feb/23
Rare shot of him with his son . Similar sort of deal to Brosnan's kid, maybe a little shorter. Dylan generally looks to have a bit more on Pierce than Will does over Colin.

He looked pretty much the same height as jim carrey back in 2009. Strong 6'1 for both of them at peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Oct/22
Still think Brosnan deserves this aswell as his peak
5'7 and a fraction said on 23/Sep/22
Agree with the slight upgrade
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/22
Suppose the original 6ft1½ is fine as well, not over it though
Slim1.75m said on 17/Sep/22
Rob you gonna give him ¼or½ you said no more 8ths.
Editor Rob
I think by now he's lost half inch so the 1.5 mark is reasonable.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Aug/22
Actually, looking at that photo again with Matthew, Colin is further away from the camera and is bending while Matthew is standing more upright.

Chances of him still measuring 6ft1 are probable I'd say.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/May/22
Rob, he's really struggling to look even 6ft1 with Matthew McFadyen

Click Here

Could he be heading below it now?
Editor Rob
From looking at recent photos, I still think if measured he's going to be close to 6ft 1. However, always a chance under it a fraction.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/21
Yeah 6ft2 was always a stretch for Firth...
Jug said on 29/Oct/21
Slightly over 6’1 in his prime. He is very well proportioned and can look taller. As the quintessential Mr Darcy in his heyday looked quite big, like 6’3. Also impressed as Valmont. It seems he was always edged out a bit by 6’2 costars, so never quite 6’2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Aug/21
Rob is right in that the eighth figures shouldn't be handed out like tic-tacs....however I do think Brosnan, Day Lewis and Butler are strong contenders for this listing as well looking back over their careers
David Tang said on 3/Jul/21
rob, i respect your height measurements, but why the 6'1 and 3/8 ths measurement?.
Editor Rob
it was to cover 6ft 1.25 to 1.5 range, but the /8th really are rarely used in last couple of years

Rob, what do you say about these shoes as well? Never seen such a disproportionately large heel on a classic oxford.
Editor Rob
could be 1.3-4 range type of heel.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jan/21
He can look like he's struggling with 6ft1 these days but I'm not so sure I'd go as low as 184cm

I think he could measure similar to Brosnan now though.
slim 6'1 said on 12/Jan/21
Could be sub 6’1” today
Slim 6'1" said on 31/Dec/20
Probably in 184 area today

6ft1.7/8ths peak;
6ft1.25 today. 😁👍

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jul/20
I think 6ft1⅜ could also be argued for Brosnan, Butler, Day Lewis and Hedlund
Vsquad said on 25/Jun/20
I wanna say Colin is more 6'0, but he held up really well next to Nicholas Hoult and Matthew Goode back when they were doing a press run together. He was the shortest of the bunch, but still looked solidly "tall" next to them regardless.
Jam Cherry said on 6/Jun/20
He’s still 6’1” peak would be like 186.5 cm and currently 185.5-186 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Mar/19
Sorry berta, in the first Mamma Mia Brosnan looked taller in some scenes.

I think peak this mark is arguable for both but looking at a young Pierce he seems like the taller one.
berta said on 23/Mar/19
he doesnt really look like a guy that have lost 1 cm. Myabe he was and still is 186 guy? I dont know rampage, i cant see brosnan be 0,5 cm taller than him. i think 186,5 range for him is good and brosnan 186. Tallest possible for brosnan is 186,5 and tallest possible for this guy 187. But thats just what i believe. Both could be 186 peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Feb/19
Not taller than a peak Brosnan, fact I argue the opposite

Also consistently edged out by Mark Strong, Matthew Goode and Russell Brand
berta said on 5/Jan/19
i believe he was measured at 6 foot 1 1/2 as he claimed but maybe at lunch? Never under 186 peak and not over 187. 186,5 is average of that so thats what i guess.
Michael 5'10", 178 cm said on 17/Dec/18
He looked tall in Love Actually, The King's Speech, and Kingsman. Colin was definitely shorter than Mark Strong, but a lot taller than Taron Edgerton. In the King's Speech, he looked 1-2 inches taller than Geoffrey Rush and roughly around the same height difference with Guy Pearce. In Love Actually, he gave a tall impression. I knew he was at least 6'0", so 6'1" is a reasonable listing for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Dec/18
Edged out by Brosnan in Mamma Mia and consistently so by Mark Strong
Jtm said on 29/Sep/18
i thought he looked fairly tall in bridget jones but that was probably the camera angles and I realized that zellweger was really 5'3 and not 5'5. he looks a lot shorter than jeff goldblum in recent pictures and his footwear looks suspicious.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Jul/18
I think during filming Kingsman Samuel L.Jackson was about 3/8 taller than Colin Firth.

Samuel.l.Jackson 6'1 1/8 now

Colin Firth 6'0 7/8 now

Rob, you said that for peak height Colin, anything in the zone from 6'1.25" to 6'1.75" is possible and that for Jackson's peak height 6'2.25" is debatable. What is your opinion now, after watching these photos?
Editor Rob
The figures are still possible, a little over 6ft 2 and for Firth somewhere around 6ft 1.5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jun/18
6ft1¾ I find hard to believe
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/May/18
Colin Firth look more like 6'1 3/8 (186.3cm) peak and 6'0 7/8 (185cm) now.
sulu2018 said on 13/Mar/18
Someone listed as 6ft 1.4in on another height site really is a perfect candidate to be listed as 6ft 1 3/8 here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jan/18
Nice! Ties in nicely with his claims and what is circulating the web.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jan/18
Hey Rob howabout 6ft1⅜ for Colin?

That's solid 186cm territory. I think that mark might also be fair for Brosnan's peak if you're still unsure about giving him the 6ft1½
Editor Rob
It's a fair mark to give him actually.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jan/18
Lee Pace is slouching in that photo and there's easily 2in there between them. Don't know where you're getting 6ft3!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Dec/17
I think 186-187cm is fine for his peak but not as high as 188cm
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 13/Dec/17
He can actually looked 6’3” with Lee Pace.

Click Here

Lee Pace did make Kellan Lutz look 5’10” in one gif (I can’t even find anymore).

Peak is fine for Firth.

Rampage, if you’re reading this, you can safely rule out 6’1” flat peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Nov/17
But 6ft1 flat is out?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Nov/17
Rob, what are the chances of him just always being 6ft1?

That's sort of how he looked in Pride & Prejudice and even before hand
Editor Rob
186 range isn't impossible
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/17
In photos Sam looks to be edging out Firth. I'd still make the argument that Sam is 186cm (peak not under 188.5cm)
Junior said on 9/Nov/17
I think there is still debating whether Samuel L.Jackson was taller than Firth or one of them were under listed. They can't be both 6'1.

I did say he was weaker 6'1.5 maybe few mm over 186cm but not quite 186.7cm mark. Solid 186cm peak and much likely he is about 184.5cm now

Jackson looked taller than him at the premiere for Kingsman
grizz said on 25/Apr/17
He looked taller than Sam Jackson in Kingsman. I do wonder how he lost so much height at his age - he's never too heavy and carries a terrific posture.
Johnny said on 4/Apr/17
Looks at most 6ft 0.5 with Hugh Grant.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Mar/17
If he was 6ft1½ he'd have looked 6ft2 more often. Even back in the 80's-90's he looked more 6ft1 range. Guys like Mark Strong, Corey Stoll, Chris Noth or even I dare say a young Pierce Brosnan pulled it off easier.
Sandy Cowell said on 25/Feb/17
Colin seems a thoroughly nice guy! He even had a bit-part in 'Blackadder Back and Forth', as William Shakespeare!
Yes, his parts are certainly enormously variable - some nice and some nasty and I like that for an actor!
Colin does comedy, yet he was extremely scary in the psychological thriller 'Before I Go To Sleep', playing the husband of tall, slender Nicole Kidman.
Let's face it everyone, he was considerably taller than Nicole in that! He's tall and that's all there is to it! Tonight, I might be watching a 'St Trinian's' film and he's in that as well as loads and loads of other stars, so the opportunities - assuming I watch it! - with be numerous!
I sent for a copy, as the film was coming to an end when I turned on the TV yesterday, and I thought in true St Trinian's style, "Screw that! I'm getting a copy!"
6ft1.5 for Colin as he is today; 6ft2 at his peak! Lovely in 'Nanny McPhee' as well!

He never a full 187cm. 186.5cm peak at most also look 186cm and 185cm 6'0.75 now likely than 6'1
Aza said on 26/Oct/16
He has lost some height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Aug/16
Rob, could we maybe tweak his prime height to 186cm?

Looked no taller than Brosnan in Mamma Mia. But he's 7 years younger so maybe by the time he's 63 he'll also be 184-185cm. That or Brosnan's peak should be 187cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/16
Rob, is a fraction under 6ft1 possible today?
Editor Rob
he can appear it, but I think standing tall might still be close enough to it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Mar/16
Rob, Mamma Mia should be on that list
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Mar/16

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/16
Rob, which range (morning to evening) do you think he measured in at peak?

A) 189cm/187cm
B) 188.5cm/186.5cm
C) 188cm/186cm
D) 187.5cm/185.5cm
E) 187cm/185cm
Editor Rob
Maybe B range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Feb/16
Looking at stuff from the late 80's & early 90's, Firth could actually pass for a 6ft2 guy at times. Similar to Brosnan in the sense that he could stack up well beside 6ft3-4 guys. No reason to doubt 187cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Feb/16
He looks skinnier these days. He used to be quite beefy looking
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Feb/16
Rob, could he still be 187-188cm out of bed now though?
Editor Rob
the older you get the more chance your morning height will reduce a few mm more than evening, but maybe that is more once you get 60-70. He may well still be in that 87-8 range today when rising.
Dmeyer said on 9/Feb/16
So 1cm at early 50s is not uncommon , but the Guy looks healthy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Feb/16
He's consistently edged out by Mark Strong (who I am starting to believe is actually 6ft2)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jan/16
Rob, is it possible that he may have been 6ft1 all along or do you think he was a bit over it at one point?
Editor Rob
1.25 is always arguable and a 1/4 loss
Word1234 said on 3/Dec/15
Rob isn't 54 still young enough that you wouldn't loose a full half inch in height??
Trying to understand how he could drop that much! Is that typical for most men in there 50s??!

it's an age a cm could have occurred in a proportion.

he might come across a weak 6ft 1 at times, give it 5 years and he may well regularly look that.

Barely taller than Fallon in that clip. I noticed the same thing with Brosnan.

rob 2cm height loss is quite impressive for a 54 year old would you agree?
Editor Rob
think of it more as 1/2 inch.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Mar/15
@cole: Brosnan may have lost a centimetre or so but I think he was a solid 187cm guy (a weak 6ft2) in his prime. Maybe he's around 6ft1 flat today but I think he's always had better posture than Firth who looks shorter than his Pride & Prejudice days...
cole said on 10/Mar/15
@Editor Rob: Isn't it likely Firth just held a better posture before than now in general? I think you should take away the peak, or at least make it 6'1.25. He doesn't look to have lost much worth mentioning. Brosnan has for sure lost a bit though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Mar/15
Rob, could he be a fraction under 6ft1 now even?

He was on Fallon a few weeks ago and barely edged him out...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Feb/15
Rob who do you think was taller peak Firth or Day Lewis?
Editor Rob
could be a toss up really, always a chance Day Lewis might have slight edge but I don't know
Joe said on 22/Feb/15
I would say 6'1" would be about right. Actors exaggerate their heights by an inch or two.

Actually, I think he might even be a little taller than that. I met him face-to-face once in New York City -- I'm 5'2" and I barely came up to his shoulder even though I was wearing low heels.
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 5/Jun/14
This guy can pass as 6 foot 2, also he is fairly lean at 192 pounds, in some of his recent roles he looks like he was even down to 170 or 180 lbs. Makes him appear all the taller.

Just saw The Railway Man and he does not look this at all with Nicole Kidman. Same with TTSS and Gambit. Last few years he does look 185cm. Having said that in Bridget Jones Diary and Shakespeare in Love Firth looked 6ft1-6ft2 range next to guys like Hugh Grant and Joseph Fiennes.

@Balrog says on 31/Oct/13
Both Hoult and Krasinski destroyed his 6'2" claim he looked no more than a flat 6'1" next to both of them.

I don't think so he looked 1.5 shorter than Krasinski but hoult did seem 2 taller so 6'1 but a weak one but I guess you're right 6'2 is destroyed.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/13
Even Matthew Goode, who might be a weak 6ft2, looked around 1in taller than him in An Ordinary Man.

Rob, are still convinced he's 187cm?
Editor Rob
at some point I think I would put him 6ft 1 and say he's lost half inch
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/13
185-86cm is a safe estimate. Granted he can look near 6ft2 in some of his older movies.

"Colin Firth height: 6ft 1.25in (186cm)"
Sam said on 1/Nov/13
I do think Ralph Fiennes is pretty much in the 5'10"-5'11". Guy Pearce looked a similar amount shorter than Firth, he might be a strong 5'10". I agree, he can look big but Firth really isn't over 6'1" to my eyes next to taller guys.

He does actually look around 6'2 next to 5'11" Ralph Fiennes in the English Patient. If he's a flat 6'1 then Fiennes is 5'10 range.

Brosnan seems taller. Colin is more 6'1 flat.

I think he has lost at least a few mm. He was 187 cm in peak for sure. maybe 186 range now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jul/13
Rob, maybe you should give Brosnan 187cm aswell?

he doesn't appear to have lost height either and he's 60
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jul/13
Rob, who would be taller Firth or Brosnan?

today firth generally can look 6ft 1 or thereabouts, as I've said I am unsure whether he's lost a cm or not, he may not have. Pierce could appear similar 186-7 range in 80's/90's
cole said on 26/Jul/13
Shorter than Brosnan, who is 185-186 cm range. 184-185 cm range for Firth.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jul/13
Mark Strong 6"1.75"(187cm)
Pierce Brosnan 6"1.5"(187cm)
Russell Brand 6"1.5"(187cm)
Colin Firth 6"1.25"(186cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jul/13
Had about 2in on Geoffrey Rush. But he's about 5ft11(180cm) max. This guy has always looked around 6ft1 to me. 186cm is the absolute most I could give this guy. Looked shorter than Russell Brand, Pierce Brosnan and Mark Strong. Looked barely taller than Benedict Cumberbatch (looks a strong 6ft).
Arch Stanton said on 12/Jul/13
He had 2-2.5 inches on Geoffrey Rush in the King's Speech. I'd guess he was 6'1.25?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jul/13
Rob, no one is suggesting he did lose height. Maybe, it's more of a case that he never was quite 6ft1.5?
Editor Rob
he might have lost a cm, not impossible, I know people in 50's who have lost half inch just through general disc wear and tear.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jul/13
Rob, weren't you going to change this to 186cm?
Editor Rob
I never decided if I thought he'd lost half inch by now or not
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jun/13
Doesn't drop below 185cm at night.
Balrog said on 8/Jun/13
Always looked around 6'1''. Think 187 cm is too high.
Sam said on 7/Jun/13
There's really only half that height discrepancy between Firth and Strong, as Firth is bending his knees slightly in that photo. There might be a 1 or 2 cm advantage for Strong.

cole said on 6/Jun/13
He's a good 3 cm shorter than 187 cm Mark Strong, so 184 cm for Colin: Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/13
I agree James
James said on 19/Feb/13
185 or 186cm. 187cm is a stretch.
Balrog said on 10/Jan/13
Firth seems to be 6'1'' flat IMO
SAK said on 8/Jan/13
@Hew, thats definately due to dodgy camera angle. Krasinski is leaning towards camera, and Firth is doing the opposite. If it were the other way round, they would probably appear very similar.
Lo sgozzatore said on 7/Jan/13
Krasinski did look slightly shorter than Steve Howey, who's listed here at 6'3 and actually looks that! In that pic he's closer to the camera and he's standing better than Firth. Firth is just another 6'1 flat guy who gets listed at 6'1.5, same as Jim Carrey, Will Smith,... Gift from Rob Paul. So i believe they're a 6'1 and 6'2.5 guys
Hew said on 7/Jan/13
Looks 5'11 with 6'3 Krasinski. Could be an iffy camera-angle though.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/12
Ok, I can settle on 186cm for Firth. But I still think Brosnan should be upgraded to 187cm since he pulled off looking 6ft3 in pics I posted on his page.
Silent d said on 7/Oct/12
If pierce is taller than him then 186cm is a safe bet.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/12
USYD, as much as I respect your contributions, I don't believe Firth is officially 6ft1.5(187cm). Out of bed, most likely. But by affernoon/evening he's 185-186cm max.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/12
"Colin Firth height: 6 ft 1 in (185cm)"

"Pierce Brosnan height: 6 ft 1.5 in (187cm)"

Could those two figures maybe be more accurate, Rob?
Shaun said on 5/Sep/12
He can't be any taller than Brosnan surely Rob? Firth looks 6'1" flat a lot of the time.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Sep/12
Thank you Shaun. I'm glad someone agrees with me
Shaun said on 30/Aug/12
Agree with Rampage, and at the very minimum you can list Brosnan and Firth as the same height, there's no way he edges Brosnan out. If anything I'd lower Firth to 185-86cm and upgrade Brosnan a shade to 187cm.
Shaun said on 30/Aug/12

He's a solid 185cm but nothing more.
The height he claims is most likely a
morning height.
Silent d said on 21/Jan/12
About the same height as craig ferguson. On ellen, he looked 186cm easy. His wax figure was taller than him. The wax figure was 2-3 cm taller than him. 187cm is too high. 186cm but he looks taller. Good posture.

He is 186cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Dec/11
He probably was wearing lifts...
Aswell Everett is 192cm(6ft3.5) tops
Firth was also slightly shorter than
187cm Pierce Brosnan in Mamma Mia
and only 1.5-2in taller than 180-181cm Hugh
Grant in Bridget Jones

Hes 6ft1 flat or 185cm...
Lebensdorf said on 13/Dec/11
In 'The Importance of Being Earnest,' Firth looks really no more than 1.5-2 inches shorter than Rupert Everett. Unless he was wearing lifts in that film, he really can't be less than the height stated here. I would say 6 1.5 is right on the money.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Dec/11
I think there's a better chance Brosnan is closer to 6ft2 than Firth.
Sam said on 12/Dec/11
I agree with James' assessment that both Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth are the same size at a strong 6'1". He can pull off seeming 6'2" with hair and good posture but I doubt Firth ever hit that mark.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Nov/11
Good head of hair + decent shoes and he can pull off 6"2...
Shaun said on 12/Nov/11
Flat 6'1" is about right, two inches on Hugh Grant.

He's 6ft1 flat most likely and 186cm-187cm range out of bed

he look 6'0 with 6'2.5 Nicholas Hoult. maybe hes 6'0.5 and slim frame help him look taller.

That said i noticed that Rupert might have thick trainer/shoe than Firth in the photos?

Firth was kinda dominated by Nicholas Hoult as well so maybe Firth is shorter than we think?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/11
In Bridget Jones Diary I thought he could look near 6ft2 when standing with Hugh Grant. But he was slimmer and had a good head of hair which gave off this impression.

I think he's always been 6ft1(185cm) and wears lifts to look 6ft2(188cm).
James said on 14/Aug/11
i think theres a very high chance that firth is 185cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Aug/11
James, since Broadbent peaked at 6ft2 then yes that means he would at one point have been taller than Brosnan. But nowadays they're both 187cm while Firth has always been 6ft1 flat.
James said on 12/Aug/11
Sam picture Firth with a shaven head next too Broabent in that pic. the camera angle might distort things as well.

Out of Brosnan and Firth, jim broadbent looks the taller out of the 2 in my opinion.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/11
Brosnan 187cm
Broadbent 187cm
Firth 185cm
Sam said on 10/Aug/11
Actually in When Did You Last See Your Father? Firth looked taller than Broadbent throughout:

Very similar in height to Brosnan in Mamma Mia! with Brosnan maybe slightly edging Firth out by a hair
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/11
James I don't think Firth has lost height. He's probably been measured in the morning at 187cm and therefore rounds up 0.5in. If you put him next to someone like Pierce Brosnan or Jim Broadbent who are both near 6ft2 he'd be shorter.

In Love, Actually he was identical in height to 185cm Alan Rickman who looks to have lost height.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jul/11
Made your mind up yet, Rob?

Saw Bridget Jones Diary last night and there were times when Firth looked barely talller than legit 5ft11 Hugh Grant. 185cm is probably his max?
Editor Rob
the 6ft 1.5 he claimed could still be a cm high, I just don't know if he has lost height. Today, he indeed looks more often just 6ft 1 than 1.5.

Colin Firth just never has that 'near 6ft2' look that guys like Pierce Brosnan, Mark Strong and Gerard Butler tend to have. It could be something to do with his build.

Pierce Brosnan maybe can look a bit more than 6'1. Gerald Butler looking near 6'2? I don't think so maybe 6'1 but never looks higher than that really.

Maybe I am being

Wouldn't go as low as 6ft. I think 6ft1.5 when he wakes and 6ft0.75 in the evening

Well i don't think he looks like a guy who is pushing 6'2. maybe its got something to do with his build i dunno? compared too hugh grant he looks 6'0-6'1 range in my opinion.

he is likely more 6ft 1-1.5 range than 6ft 1.5-2 range of course, but I'm sure he loses 0.75 inch at least from waking.

Rampage Rush is not 182cm today though
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/11
Not necessarily James...if Rush is 5"11 flat, Firth looks 6"0.5(184cm). But we need to take into account that his posture isnt all that great. In the last pic he does look at least 6"1 though.
James said on 20/May/11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 19/May/11
With the exception of the last pic, I see max 1-1.5in between Firth and Rush

Actually he could be 187cm when you see how much taller he looks than now 180cm Geoffrey Rush.

Geoffrey Rush 5'11 (180cm) Peak 5'11.5 (182cm)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/May/11
6"0 onwards is tall...
Josh B said on 10/May/11
6ft 1.5in is not above average, that would be about 5ft 11in to 6ft 1in, above that and the majority of people would see you as "tall". Even 5ft 10in, depending on where you live, is usually considered slightly above average,i wouldn't consider putting Colin in the same category as that.
Cranberries said on 8/May/11
Not tall; "above average" would be a realistic term. Looks tall though, due to his narrow bones and small head. Looked tall next to the short Helena Bonham Carter in King's Speech.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/May/11
He's not that low...he's probably 185cm or maybe at best 186cm
Chameleon said on 2/May/11

Jim Carrey is 184cm max how many times do I have to tell you?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Apr/11
6"2 is silly...186cm looks probable for Firth

I think Jim Carrey is 187-188cm
Lenad said on 24/Apr/11
The 6ft2 is clearly a stretch
Lenad said on 24/Apr/11
He looked the same height as Jim Carrey if not a bit shorter. Carrey is only in the 6'1 range. I'd give Firth 186cm tops
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Apr/11
honestly though... the only time this guy sees 187cm is first thing out of dinnertime he's probably just a shade below the 6"1 mark
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Apr/11
Wouldn't amaze me if he measured even a little below the 6ft1 at the end of the day
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Apr/11
He's not 6ft2
Klaus said on 1/Apr/11
Colin looks very big in "the king's speech", like a 6'2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Mar/11
His height should be switched with Pierce Brosnan's...

It should be Colin Firth 6ft1.25(186cm), Pierce Brosnan 6ft1.5(187cm)
James said on 30/Mar/11
well maybe a short women said that he made her think feel like tinkerbell? To a short women a 6ft or 6'1 guy will look very tall.

186cm is defenintly more accurate for this guy than 187cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/11
I doubt he's shrunk...he's just always been around 186cm max
Aaron said on 28/Mar/11
How could this guy make someone feel like "Tinkerbell"? 6'1.5" is hardly very tall. He barely looks 6'1" in The King's Speech. Seems like a very common height. I doubt he weighs more than 175 either.
James said on 27/Mar/11
the guy looks in ok shape so i don't think he has lost anything really signifignt yet.... that said with nicholas hoult he defnintly does not look over 6'1
mcfan said on 27/Mar/11
In response to the March 1st comment Shaun, this is quite clearly an illusion with the tilting of the camera and Bale closer in the shot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/11
Why do you still have this man pegged at 187cm, Rob?

Editor Rob
he might be that earlier in the day and go towards 6ft 1, but I've not changed it yet as I wanted to see if he has lost height or not.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Mar/11
I suppose I could settle for 186cm...
James said on 9/Mar/11
Yeah 6'1 1/2 out of bed.

This is what i think
Colin Firth 6'1.25 (186cm)
Hugh Grant 5'11.25 (181cm)

there is exactley 2 inches between them.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Mar/11
Rob would 6"1 flat be possible?

Editor Rob
6ft 1-1.5 is a range that you could argue both ends of, maybe he does drop to 6ft 1 and wakes near 6ft 2
MsKitty said on 2/Mar/11
I don't understand the whole tall guys wearing lifts thing...what qualifies as lifts? Because I have a pair of work boots that I wear which give me almost 2 inches in height, though I don't wear them to add height. Of course, I'm a girl and haven't the insecurities that men apparently have about my height. I guess it doesn't make sense to me why Colin Firth, even if he IS "only 6 feet tall", would purposely wear lifts. Its not like he is a big action guy or anything...please, enlighten me! :)

I think he seems quite charming and down-to-earth...

Editor Rob
186cm isn't out of question as has been argued for a couple of years now.
Shaun said on 1/Mar/11

Rob, who looks taller Firth or Bale? Is camera angle/posture creating an illusion?

Editor Rob
maybe the camera is low enough so that bale being nearer adds more height than if it were up near their heads.
Shaun said on 1/Mar/11
Yeah its weird, Christian Bale also looked taller than Firth in the Oscar pics!!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/11
Warren Beatty is not 6"2(188cm) anymore...more 186-187cm

Firth looks shorter so 6"1(185cm)
