How tall is Elijah Wood

Elijah Wood's Height

5ft 5 (165.1 cm)

American actor best known for playing Frodo in The Lord of The Rings movies. In an AOL Chat when he was 14 Elijah said "I'm about 5'4" and in 2001 Virginian Pilot, quoted: "I'm 5 foot 6, but Frodo is something like 3 feet". I met him July 2006 and thought he looked 5ft 5. Another quote (from Birmingham Mail) mentioned him saying, "I'm 5ft 6in,' he says proudly. 'Make that 5ft 7in on a good day"

I would say a solid 5'5 for Elijah Wood. I nearly typed in Daniel Radcliffe though.

Looking at the photo from "Happy Feet 2" with Robin "Williams he would be at least 2 inches shorter than Robin. Robin is listed at 5'7" making Elijah between 5'5" and 5'6".
David Zelisney said on 8/Sep/22
At 166 cm, Elijah Wood, Daniel Radcliffe and myself would be a trio.
Leighton Tang said on 11/Aug/22
I don't really get the quote where he says he's 5'7 on a good day. Is it even possible for a person to be an inch taller than they usually are on certain days?
David Green said on 12/Jul/22
At first I didn’t think he looked 5’5 and I thought he looked about 5’6 but as I looked at more photos he does look about 5’5. Saw a picture of him next to vin diesel looks like a solid 5’5. 6-7 inches shorter. Although He might be 5’5 1/4 - 5’5 1/2 on a good day.

Strong 5'5
James Da said on 12/Jun/22
5ft5? I did not think of him being this short. He looked the exact same height as Sean Astin. It’s hard to believe hes 5ft5 he looks 5’6-5’7 to me.

He looks 5ft 6 next to Bruce boxleitner and is on less footwear than Bruce so if bruce has shrunk it will still mean Elijah cant be under 5ft 6 as he looks about 4 inches higher than his shoulder

He's not 5 ft 5, 5 ft 6 suits him better. He does not look that short in Cooties and he's not really wearing some lifts
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Oct/20
I've noticed on Amazon a film starring Elijah called 'Come To Daddy', so I decided to buy myself a copy. It is 18-rated and the part was probably offered to Elijah after he played the lead role in the gore fest 'Maniac' so menacingly well.

Furthermore, the single most terrifying music video I've ever seen was that of 'Come To Daddy', by Aphex Twin. There's a Director's Cut, which can be caught on U-Tube. It came high in a rundown of the scariest TV moments of all time, and the song, which is spine-chilling in itself, was used in the remake of the German movie 'Funny Games' to heighten a particularly threatening moment.

I look forward to reporting back on this 2019 Elijah Wood film.

@ Littlelee - Well, thanks for that! I'll know to avoid that film then! 😁
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Mar/19
I've just noticed Elijah's name pop up as a co-producer of the film 'Mandy', which has 5-stars in every review I've read. It stars Nicolas Cage and I plan to see it some time today.

So Elijah is into the production side of movies now. Good on you, Elijah!

I think he looks about 5'4.5 in the movie Green Street.
I only know that Mark Warren is 5'8.5

Has anyone seen Elijah's film 'Maniac'? Wow - that's a horror and a half! I like women's hair myself, but what he gets up to in that film is taking things to the extreme!

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 30/Oct/18
He seems to have "short" proportions even for a guy of his height.
Anonynon said on 28/Oct/18
Agree on 5'5"ish, but I think it's really his lowest throughout day. This picture you selected makes him look 5'3".
Emil said on 27/Aug/18
Have you ever watched Green Street?
Elijah must have stood on a shoe box during the entire film - he never looked less than 4 inches shorter than 6'0 Charlie Hunnam lol. Sometimes they even looked very similar in height lol.
Whatever, Elijah is 5'5 on the dot
Editor Rob
He could look 5ft 6 in the film at times.
EthanCouch said on 27/Mar/18
5’4.75 definitely Rob
Sandy Cowell said on 28/Jan/18
πŸŽ‚ Happy Birthday Elijah! πŸŽ‚

It doesn't seem possible that the dear little blue-eyed Elijah Wood, who played Frodo Baggins with such conviction, turns 38 today!
I saw my favourite scene of the lot yesterday. It is the one when Sam walks into Frodo's brightly lit bedroom at the very end and they look at each other and don't say a single word! They don't need to! They've just been through so much together that their look says it all - so, so beautiful!

Happy Birthday to Elijah then, who will get 5ft5.75 on his Birthday from me, which is probably nearer his midday height.
KH said on 10/Oct/17
You really think Elijah could be 5'5.75 out of bed Rob? I find that hard to believe having watched him over the years. I think 5'5 is a little bit of a gift I feel like if you measued him in the evening he would be a little fraction under that.
Editor Rob
I still would go with around 5ft 5 flat and near .75 in the morning.
Joe said on 30/Jul/17
Is 5ft 4.75 possible for him? Also, what would his morning height be?
Editor Rob
think I'd stick with Elijah being an honest 5ft 5 guy, maybe 5ft 5.75 on his best days out of bed.
John Davis said on 27/Jul/17
@carl199cm your comment makes no sense whatsoever. In order to make the Hobbits look short they hired shorter actors than 6foot? What the hell are you talking about
Jand7897 said on 18/Jul/17
Looks a hair under 5' 5" in Wilfred. I'd peg him at 5' 4.75".
World Citizen said on 2/Jun/17
Listing is spot on.
Sam said on 8/Jan/17
Hey Rob, thank you for the reply. Anyway I'd say that if you look others 5ft 5in men in this site like Emile Hirsch, Woody Allen or Corey Feldman, they seem shorts, but not so shorts like Elijah. He's very tiny and he's always towered by others.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't say Elijah fell under 5ft 5, well not by anything noticeable, for me a decent 5ft 5 guy.
Sam said on 7/Jan/17
Hey Rob, don't you think he is too short to be a 5ft 5in guy?
Editor Rob
Sam, seeing him up close, believe me...he's not as tall as my 5ft 5.5 sister!
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Dec/16
How can anyone not like Elijah Wood? He will, of course, always be remembered for his role as the loveable 'Frodo' in 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy, but he has also been in film parts which are far from cute, to say the least!
Has anyone seen the film 'Maniac'? In it, he plays an incredibly messed up young man who has completely lost the plot, and he takes the scalps from girls once he's killed them in order to transform his mannequins! It is not an easy watch at all! When I first saw it, I phoned my 'Lord of the Rings' fan boyfriend and told him that I had just seen Frodo playing a serial killer!
Then I bought a copy and showed it to him and he even found it vaguely amusing!
When you watch Elijah in the LOTR's trilogy, it is easy to think of him as smaller than 5ft5 because of the special effects. I would have believed it if someone had told me he was 5ft4 or even 5ft3; his 5ft5 suits him I think and look at how many shorter heavyweight actors there are who build themselves up with 'lifts'! All Pacino and Joe Pesci for starters!
Elijah was also playing a creepy role in 'Sin City', and he can also be seen in 'The Faculty', 'Black and White' and 'The Oxford Murders', to name but a few. In these films, you can tell he is well below average, but there is no trickery involved as in the LOTR's, so he passes for his 'full' 5ft5!!!
Tiny and lovely is he, with the most enormous blue eyes! He is a great example of someone who's turned his shortness into an asset!
Johnson said on 12/Oct/16
@spainmen191cm @Rob that girl, Anna Simon, was measured live in the program around 169 cm. I would say Elijah Wood is only 1 cm taller than Motos

How tall is Rashida Jones? Surprised how much he towers over her in Wilfred

I beleive Rashida is somewhere in 5ft 2 range.

He defo wore lifts in Green Street. Looked 5'8-5'9 in that movie lol

I think his 5'6" claim might be fair out of bed, but I don't think 5'7" is possible except maybe out of bed in oxfords

up close he seemed the shortest of the 4 Hobbits.

Rob, how tall would you say is the blonde girl wearing the pink dress comparing her with elijah (who is 5ft5), sasha grey(5ft 6) and Pablo Motos(who you said he is a little below 5 ft5) She is wearing very big heels, so its difficult to guess.

Editor Rob
5ft 8 maybe
The KIlla said on 1/Aug/14
I seen this guy at the Arclight movie theater in Hollywood. There is NO WAY this guys is 5"5. He's 5"3 on a good day.
Sean said on 15/Jul/14
Have you seen much of Jason Gann on the American version of Wilfred, Rob? He's listed at 5'10", and seems at least 5'9" range next to Elijah.
Editor Rob
I think he can look 5 inches taller than Elijah, I can believe 5ft 10 for Gann
The Pippin Club said on 30/Apr/14
We are huge Lord of the Rings fans and we all agree that Frodo looks different heights in different scenes. When he's talking to Sam in The Dead Marshes, he looks taller than he does in the Prancing Pony. Apparently it's Elijah Wood not the camera that makes Frodo different sizes. By the way, Elijah, you are an awesome actor and a wonderful Frodo.
carl199cm said on 3/Feb/14
all the hobbits are around 5"7 but frodo was a weak 5"5. to make the hobbit look short they had to include fellowship actors to be shorter than 6" as possible sean bean mortensen bloom are all 5"11 ish.
Hola said on 21/Nov/13
probs 5'5 and a quarter like marshall allman
James Crowley Meridius said on 19/Nov/13
Rob is there a chance elijah wood could be in the 5ft 6in range he can't be 5ft 7in because he was 5ft 7in he wouldn't have been tower by charlie hunnam the guy he was standing next too who is looks 5ft 10in range in green street.

jasperwazup said on 17/Oct/13
how much would he weigh considering the 5'5'' listing. about 9 stone.
Editor Rob
seems a good shout yeah
Jag175cm said on 22/Aug/13
Guys he cannot be over 5ft 5 because in this pic he stands shorter than 5ft 5.5in Jason Schwartzman, obviously not by much it's barely visible.

Here's the pic:

cd said on 19/Aug/13
Rob, can we change him to 5'5.25 since you agree that he may be a fraction over 5'5? Also you did say a while back that you thought he looked 5'5-5.5 range. I've had a look at the other hobbits too and I think there is just a single inch (maybe a tad less) between him and Freeman. I used to think Martin Freeman was only 167 cm (I'm not sure if he's a lift wearer or not) but now I think 5'5.25 for Wood and 5'6-6.25 for Freeman is reasonable. What do you think?
Editor Rob
5.25 could be ok
Balrog said on 10/Aug/13
Rob you think there's a chance he's 166 cm? He looks that next to Monaghan.
Editor Rob
he can look a fraction over 5ft 5
Meg said on 2/Jul/13
He is 5' 5". Its in the Lord of the Rings behind the scenes books and videos. I remember because I am only 4' 11" and said to myself - Ha! He's hot and short enough for me :p
Emil said on 30/Jun/13
In Green Street he could look 5'10! Amazing what different camera angles and perspectives can make

Rob if you've met him then maybe he is 5 foot 5 but he was shorter than robin williams.

Sasha said on 21/Mar/13
Look here:

Elijah (2-nd from the left) looks 1.5-2" taller than Peter Jackson (4-th from the left). Actually he looks even 3" taller, but I made a correction, because Elijah is closer to the camera. Peter is listed 5'4.75" here. So Elijah is at least 5'6.25" (168 cm).
Hobbit 101 said on 20/Jan/13
i think the height on him is cut personally but i was estimate maybe 5'6" -5'7" i don't think he is much taller then that
185-186 said on 20/Jan/13
166 cm maybe a bit more i think
Balrog said on 15/Jan/13
He should be 5'5.5'' because in every pic he's 1-1.5'' shorter than Dominic Monaghan who you met and you're sure he's 5'7''
richkid123 said on 30/Dec/12
He did look kinda tall in Green Street Hooligans. Tended to hold his own quite a bit. Looks shortish in Wilfred. I have seen him in person and he is indeed short. 5'5"
anonangel said on 22/Dec/12
Well my classmate met him a few yrs ago and says he was about 5'7". That's all I know.
Killa B said on 13/Oct/12
I seen this guy at the Archlight Theater in Hollywood. There's no way this guy is 5 ft 6 inches. IMPOSSIBLE. I'm 5'9 I was in line to get popcorn behind him.

In Green Street he looked 5'10 in a few scenes.
Anyway he definately isn't nowhere near it. 5'5 Max
Johnnyfive said on 16/Sep/12
This height is what he looked in the Faculty next to 5'6 Jordana Brewster. In her heels she was like 4 inches taller than him and every dude dwarfed him in that film, even weak 5'8 Usher. 5'5 is spot on.
Shaun said on 7/Sep/12
Yeah 5'5" I think is about right. No way is he over 5'6"!!

His girlfriend is 5ft7/170cm, In this pic next to her he looks 5ft3, ok you if you into account that he was walking so he is lowered, but still looks 5ft4 next to her, so I will say he is 5ft4 @ best.

good grief he looks like Michael J. Fox in that photo and 5'4"!

Rob are average height men below average height men and short men are more likely too look young for their age then taller people Leonardo DiCaprio is a tall man and he still looks young even for 36 he can still pass for a good 18 years younger.

Leo does look younger, but really 18 years younger. 18 i don't think so. Is that with heavy make-up on and moisturizers. i do think he looks 10 years younger putting him in his mid 20's but not any younger that's silly. he does have wrinkles you know and i'm suppose to believe that makes him 18 years younger.
Joe said on 10/Jan/12
Taro, sorry about your computer crashing and losing 'all your photos' but he's obviously over 5'4. 5'5 sounds right on.

there's another picture beside that where they both have same stride pattern.

walking shots, someone could be mid-stride and on one foot, the other at full stride and be 1-2 inches lower than the other person.

he's definitely 5'4" but taro you don't know what you're talking about. i'm 5'5 and very successful with women. also know tons of girls/women who LOVE elijah wood. he has a handsome face and good personality. height isn't everything.
Taro said on 23/Sep/11
You'll never convince me that he's over 5'4'. Comes up to about my nose when wearing sneakers. And I used to have a good pic of his lift shoe, before my computer crashed and ditched all my pics. I think women with crushes just *want* him to be taller.

not in person, but in photos alone? Anybody can appear taller/shorter in photos, some things like slim build, small/large head can effect perception.

SpaceInvaduhs said on 31/Jul/11
You guys are all insane. That picture someone posted on here with him and his ex-girlfriend (the one where she's wearing the shades) tells the whole story.
If she is 5'7" then he is 5'4". If she is 5'8" then he is 5'5". Because we know that she is in the 5'7 range, Elijah Wood must be 5'4".
Maximus Meridius said on 28/Jul/11
Rob how tall do you think Elijah Wood is during the morning afternoon evening and night my guess would be 5ft 5.75in morning 5ft 5.25in after noon and 5ft 5in at night but is there a chance Elijah Wood is 5ft 6in when wakes up.
Editor Rob
his late height is probably five five flat or possibly a fraction more
Maximus Meridius said on 19/Jul/11
Rob does Elijah Wood wear lifts i wonder if he is insecure about his height.
Editor Rob
maybe in film, but outside I don't know...if he starts looking 5ft 6.5 then maybe he would be wearing them.

Elijah is 5ft 6 and 120-130 pounds MAX. He` is virtually identical to my boyfriend who is in the music biz and how we ran into Frodo. The BF is 33, 5 ft 7, 130 same slim frame, skinny arms, small cute ass, 27/28 waist.
WarriorDude said on 24/May/11
Elijah Wood is not 5'5". I think he's more like 5'4.5".
And anything above 5'5" is ridiculous. Look at him with his ex-girlfriend! She's barely 5'7" and makes him look like a shrimp.

Lol, Nick has a 4" head, cool.
AlexZ says on 23/Sep/09
5'5" huh? he's pretty short. He probably comes up to about my shoulder I'm 6'2".

The average human head size is 9" if he comes up to your shoulder, u basically have no neck. Besides for tall guy like u, u pbb have a slightly larger head.

I think Elijah is 5'6, might look taller because of his shoes or his slim build
Ivan said on 11/Apr/11
If she's 170 or 5'7 then he's no more then 5.5 or 165, as stated.

Elijah Wood looks about 5ft 9in 5ft 10in in this picture he must be wearing 2 to 3 inch lifts in his bots the guy standing next to him is 6ft 1in he only looks a few inches shorter than him it's more like a 3 inch difference rather than a 6 inch difference

If Elijah Wood wore nike max air trainers he would look taller they add 2 inches he is 5ft 7in nike air max trainers would make him look 5ft 9in
alex said on 31/Dec/10
He's 5'6 that's a fact.
maximus meridius said on 14/Dec/10
If he is only a few inches shorter than this guy in this picture he is defiantly not 5ft 6in i think he might me taller he is defiantly around 5ft 7in at the most but in this picture he is wearing boots with 2 to 3 inch lifts bringing him up to the 5ft 8in 5ft 9in the guy in this picture is 6ft 1in there is a 3 inch difference rather than a 6 inch difference Elijah Wood is not 5ft 6in he is defiantly 5ft 7in his height needs to be upgraded.

According to a fan website, he's 168cm tall, making him 5 feet 6 1/10 inches tall (to be precise!)

Actually, most guys stop growing at 17-18. Only some lucky ones keep growing until 21.Elijah is in the 5'5-5'6 range, for sure.
leonari said on 29/Jun/09
he is 5'5" and hasn't grown since
Frodofan1 said on 29/Jun/09
I think that he is 5'6"
moron said on 25/Jun/09
no way... in hooligans he's standing next to charlie hunnam who is like 6'1, and elijah looks almost the same height... how the hell is that possible he may be taller maybe 5'9.. or maybe im wrong and hunnam is shorter :)
Lenad said on 23/Jun/09
In the good son he and Macauly Kulkin were about the same height
MissKit said on 9/Jun/09
My sister's friend met him last yr and she said he was the same height as her.. she is about 5'2!! Not sure if she was lieing though... I'm so gutted! I thought he was at least 5'6. at the end of the day, its not the height that matters, but Elijah's lovely smile! :)
Shae said on 4/Jun/09
I think he's around 5'5. In the movie Lord of the rings he looks shorter than his pal Sam who's 5'6 i believe.
Dutch boy said on 28/Apr/09
It's true: the dutch are tall, i'm 5 ft 10 with no shoes on, and at the moment I wear nike air max light which make me 6 ft. But i'm the smallest of my group, all me friends are at least 6 ft. 3
Been to the States and saw E. wood
He's small ...
The Dutchguy said on 26/Apr/09
I stumbled into him somewhile back in Amsterdam, i'm 6'4 and he came aprox. up to my shoulder, so i think he is somewhere around 5'5, yeah
and people stop growing when they are 21 right? in the LOTR movies, he was about 17-19 years old, so i think he was about 5'4 there
Kiwi said on 16/Mar/09
I have met him before and have even measured him before too. He was about 5'7. This was back in 2007.
Liz said on 1/Feb/09
I've met him before. I didn't have high heels on, just flat shoes. I'm 5'5 he was over me so stop making him shorter than he is.
M. Johnston said on 22/Jan/09
My niece, who is 5'5" like myself, met Elijah at a NYC club last year. They were standing face to face during introductions, and she told me that she was taller than he was. I agree that he's around 5'4" or so, but he always looks taller in photos. Nevertheless, he seems to be a genuinely nice guy.
zands said on 13/Jan/09
A male stops or at least decreases growing vertically at around 21 years of age. After that it's usually muscle development that sets in.
leonari said on 6/Jan/09
linebacker40: With all due respect. Elijah looks 5'5" everywhere. In pics, movies,magazines. 5'7-5'8" can look average with the right proportions not standing near 5'10-5'11 guys. Get real.
Jolace: No I don't trust you. Measure yourself properly.
Alex: Feel whatever you want mate. Thats your birth given right. But you don't understand that your posts are discriminating others. And btw. I am not nasty. You don't want to read my comments once I get nasty. I can be worst than Glenn back in the day.
linebacker40 said on 6/Jan/09
To be quite honest, I thought he was at least 5'7" if not 5'8". He looked it in Green Street Hooligans.
LiLLee said on 2/Jan/09
I hate that Alex' comments below i'm 5'6" and i wouldn't change my height for the world. I'm a proud guy and love being short. Anyone with me? Isn't being short awsome

I did not know he was 5'5. I thought he was taller than that.

Hes actually 5'6 because im 5'5 and hes over me an inch. trust me ladies i met hm twice. we both had converse shoes on too...
Donatello said on 10/Sep/08
I dont add inches to my height and I'm quite short. Although when I was younger and 5'4" 1/2 I use to claim 5'5". When your only 5'6" and most of your friends are 6'+ its hard to get away with lying about your height. Some of my friends that are like 6'4",6'5" didn't even believe my real height of 5'6" until they measured me.
Antron said on 6/Sep/08
Men add inches to their height because there is a bias against short men. Simple as that.
Bryan said on 26/Aug/08
I tend not to do add inches. Im almost 6'1" and im taller than most of my friends
Nikki said on 24/Aug/08
Why do men always add a few inches to their height? I'm 6'1" and when I'm around shorter men they always claim to be 5'10" etc. etc. when they barely reach my shoulder. I don't get it. I like short men, it's cute.
sophie said on 20/Aug/08
wow i never thought he was that small although the guys who play the hobbits on LOTR are no bigger than 5'7" Dom Monaghan apparently...
Donatello said on 5/Aug/08
Btw I'm 5'6" - 5'6" 1/2
Donatello said on 4/Aug/08
I actually saw Elijah Wood out here in BC, Canada the other day. I walked right by him, the guy looked about 20-21 tops. I would say hes around 5'5" 1/2 - 5'6". It was hard to tell though because the side walk was slanted in my favour, but he was definately not taller then me.
Daii said on 25/Jul/08

from green street he looks about 5'8 but hes not

No most people stop growing when they turn 18 or 19.

I am 14 and I am 5'5"
Josephine said on 12/Jul/08
He doesn't look much taller than when he was 14 years old. In fact most people (not all) stop growing when they turn 16 or so. He is 5'5'' at the most.
Leon said on 5/Jun/08
Didn't look that small to me in football-hooligan Brit-flick Greenstreet, although a couple of characters poke fun of his size when he's pretending to be a karate expert. I'd guess a little shy of 5'6" personally.
Guido G. said on 17/May/08
Yea, 5'4 or so.
Heightdetective said on 28/Apr/08
I'd give him 5ft 4.5 (164 cm)
Ixactehlehseero said on 23/Apr/08
I used to work at a job where I had to view people's licenses for identity verification purposes. I'm 5'6" and MANY men that were obviously shorter than me had 5'6" and even 5'7" listed as their height on their license. Until viewing this site, I had no idea so many people did the same. In relation to Elijah's height, I think he's definitely around 5'5" but I'd bet money on the fact that he's listed as 5'6" on his license.
ryder said on 17/Apr/08
One year ago, he stood just next to me. I'm exactly 5'7" and he was about 2 inches smaller (both wearing sneakers). He always just looks so tiny because of his childish thin body...
brother_h said on 3/Apr/08
i thought he was 5'4 the whole time, the guy who plays sam on LOTR is alot taller than him and hes 5'6.
Antron said on 29/Jan/08
Yeah he's in the 5'5" range, 5'6" in thick shoes I'd buy. He's not 5'4" though. He's not a ton shorter than Dom Monaghan who is 169cm at the absolute shortest.
L.L. said on 24/Dec/07
I've met Elijah and his girfriend. He looked no more than a couple inches taller than me (I'm 5'3"). He's not taller than 5'5". I definitely don't think he's 5'6" as some other sites say. And his girl looked maybe an inch taller than him, so if she claims to be 5'7" then her height is a little exaggerated too.
Victoria said on 3/Dec/07
Yeah, Elijah is a small person, there is NO way he is 5'6'. People are usually always listed as at least an inch or two taller than they really are. On my driver's liscense, I'm 5'4, but I'm really no more than 5'3 with shoes on, meaning I'm not more than 5'2.5 Elijah Wood is 5'5 at MOST, with shoes on, so without shoes, he's definitely NOT more than 5'4. He's quite tiny, but it just makes him even cuter. He's very, very cute.

That's well high for girls. Wow. The average here, in the UK, is 5'4" ish (give or take). NZ being New Zealand? Quite cool if it is, I've always wanted to got there, but have never been. I've been to Australia, but not New Zealand. It looks absolutely fantastic.

Editor Rob
but you're from Minneapolis...
Lady said on 14/Oct/07
Yea I'd say he's around 5'5. Saw him in NZ welly back in 2001. Looks 5'5 ish

and Ana here in NZ in the south the average height for girls is 5'6". Which I believe is a high average, but not in the world.
Anna said on 25/Sep/07
I actually think, after looking at some photos of Elijah, Daniel could be taller than him. I dunno why, but Dan just looks taller. Does anyone else feel the same way?
Anna said on 2/Sep/07
Jon, according to an article I read (of which I cannot say the name), Danish men are, on average, 5'11", so yes, they are quite tall. The women are averaged at 5'5", which is also one of the highest averages for women in the world. Just if you wanted to know.

I breifly met him once on the set of green street. I was sixteen at the time and 5' 6" and whilst I did'nt tower over him I was quite obviously taller. He's a terrific guy though. His height's an irrelevence.

Also, am I the only one who finds it slightly uncanny how similar Dan Radcliffe and Elijah Wood are? They both play parts in fantasy series (which are actually quite similar in their own ways), they both look extremely similar, and they are around the same height. Has anyone else noticed this? haha, how can you not....
Anna said on 14/Aug/07
He barely looks shorter than Glenn in the photo? Is Glenn just leaning that much?
Bibs said on 8/Jul/07
I've seen pictures of both Elijah and Dominic Monaghan (who is reputedly five-seven and the tallest of the 'hobbits'). They were both in evening shoes for the Oscars that were remarkably similar in sole, and Elijah was a half-inch or so shorter. Also, his girlfriend, Pam Racine, is 5'7", and I've seen pictures of them walking side-by-side in sneakers, and they are very close to the same height (the top of his head hits around her hairline), though Pam's super-long legs make her look quite tall by herself, as does her duskier Asian skin.

As to his weight, he's on the rather thin side right now (getting ready to play Iggy Pop--he has to be kind of bony) and looks to be around 135 in recent pics. In Green Street Hooligans, in peak health and fighting form, he was around 145 according to some article I came across. He's a wiry dude. But very, very beautiful nonetheless.

Yeah the dutch really are huge. Anyone who has been to Amsterdam will be able to tell you that. The disbelievers usually are the ones that haven't been there.
Average height is indeed nearly 6'1 for young dutch men.
I went there wearing 1.8 inch shoes again recently bringing me up to 6'1.3 (barefeet 5'11.5') and I was only average height at very best.
By the way I'm very good at judging height and measuring my own.

5'11.5 guy: read the post again.

the average is 5'11 but guys that tall are extremely rare around here. i even comment on the fact that most males are somewhere between 5'4 and 5'10 and it's obvious i'm doubting that average (which is believe is 5'7.5/5'8 for males in general and 5'8.5/5'9 for 16 to 24).
Steve "thorgrim" said on 13/Jun/07
the british are taller than the portugese, end of story, i competed in those two counteries. The tallest people in the world (on average) are the serbians in Dinaric mountain range, at some 186-87 i believe. And thats a fact, they are even taller than the dutch.

hey 5'11 guy..
the average height in Uk is 5'9.5... for sure.. looked it op on the internet
and for dutch/german people the average is 5'
in denmark where i'm from the average is 5'11..180...
but for Uk and dutch it' pretty much the same for males
Dunken said on 20/Apr/07
the average for the UK is 5'9, young people 16 to 24 is 5'10. where you live doesn't represent the entire UK and the Dutch students/tourists you see don't represent the entire Dutch population.

here in Portugal the male average is 5'11 and yet, i don't think i've seen more than a dozen poeple over that where i live, with most of the guys being between 5'4 to 5'10.
5'11.5 guy said on 19/Apr/07
No, it's not. The average height where I live is 5'11-6ft. I see Dutch students/tourists over here and they are no taller than us Brits.

actually 5'11'' guy, it is just about that, 5'9'' or 5'10'' depending on the survey. Very similar to the US

I know for sure that 5'9 isn't the average here in the UK. Young people aren't any shorter than the Dutch, to be honest.

trueheight said on 6/Mar/07
I'm 5'9 and have a 39in vertical - I can dunk with a run-up pretty easily. My vert gain is from this program I've been doing since my teens. At 14, I gained about 15in in vertical jump height and have retained that for about 8yrs.
luke said on 4/Mar/07
i would personally take 5-10 over the height i am (6-10), simply due to the fact, my clothing is limited to basketball shorts and really loose jeans(im skinny), and girls generally think im kind of freakish
Anshelm said on 12/Feb/07
On Jim's comment, just for the record: I got and average of 204 cm (6'8Β½") for NBA players, and 184 cm (6'Β½") for WNBA using the stats from the according websites. This was a while a go, though, cirka 2000.

And I'm very close to Alex's strategic measurements ;) Don't really work out, but I do ride the bicycle 8,000–10,000 km (5,000–6,000 mi) a year.
Viper said on 11/Feb/07
I have naturally large calves. I guess Im blessed there.
Jim said on 10/Feb/07
I'm 6'2, and it's pretty ridiculous to assume I'm an inch under average. The only thing 6'3 could be average for is the NBA. As for average height for an American man, last time I talked to my doctor, he said 5'9.5, and I'll trust that. 5'5 sounds about right for Frodo, though.
Alex said on 25/Jan/07
Calves are probably the toughest body part to get bigger honestly. My calves are only 15.5 inches but my thighs are 25.5 inches though. I don't got small calves but they're not big either.
Alex said on 25/Jan/07
6'3 is quite above average height. Average height for a man is what 5'9-5'9.5 but when I see a guy 5'10 I'd say he's average height. 6'3 isn't very tall though but its tall alright. 6'3 isn't one of the heights that stands out in a crowd like 6'5 plus would.
Viper said on 10/Jan/07
Its waaaaayyyyyy above average. At 6-3 you are usually the tallest or one of the tallest in a room full of strangers.

I'm about 5'7. I wouldn't mind 6'6 but in reality, if I had to choose, I wouldn't want to be much over 6'4. I know some tall people who say there are cons that come with it. Also, considering most women in the world are 5'4, I hear getting a girlfriend could be quite troublesome since most women don't want to be dwarfed by their male companion. Though I do know a 6'10 guy with a 5' wife.

Oh, and on topic, 5'5 looks exactly right for Wood.
Glenn said on 7/Jan/07
True Viper.anything over 6-4 can look akward.they say the taller one is,the more their income is too.serious.
Alex said on 7/Jan/07
If you're 6'6 you can pack on weight better than someone who is much shorter. I'd take 6'6 over 5'6 still. At 6'6 you could get up to 250lbs without being so stocky for example. I wouldn't wanna be 6'6 though. I wouldn't mind being 6'2 at all though.
Dunken said on 7/Jan/07
lol, at 5'6 you're still taller than most girls and what has height have to do with respect and getting people listen to you? people will listen if you're charismatic or important, not if you're tall, lol.

the most well respected world leaders and entertainers are well below average.

i guess it's an American thing i cannot understand. i've been to many european countries (i'm from one, as well), and i've never witnessed such obsession with being tall.
anonymous said on 7/Jan/07
i am 5 feet 6 and i feel short and wish i cud be tall like atleast 5 feet 10 to 6 feet. Nothing over that.I feel 6 feet is the perfect height for guys,i wud even settle for 5 feet 11. I wud just be so happy. I think being over 5 feet 10 you have an advantage since you are taller than most of the chics, you feel more confident and people listen to you more. I dont mean to say that people below that dont have a life or they cant date women or they are not attractive at all. Look at guys like tom cruise and mark wahlberg. Iassure you both of them have dated loads and loads of chics and some even taller than them, so its not that people who are 5 feet 4 - 5 feet 8 cant date. look at glenn he is 5 feet 8 and he has confessed on some page that he has been with many women so you shud be happy and not be depressed. But yea height has advantages.thx
Dunken said on 7/Jan/07
i wouldn't trade my 5'6 for a single inch.
besides, can anyone present a legit reason why being over 5'11 has any advantage, aside from making weak people less insecure? because, aside from that, i don't see any reason at all (maybe if you want to be a basketball player, but still).
Viper said on 7/Jan/07
Hmm, Im not so sure Id take 6-6 over 5-6. At 6-6 with a thin or skinny body type you might look like a lurch. Plus it stands out waaaayyyyyy too much. The coolest thing about it would be the ability to dunk a basketball If you have a good vertical.
Glenn said on 6/Jan/07
6-6 over 5-6 is tough.but I guess Id pick 6-6.not sure.6-3 in a heartbeat over 5-3!
Alex said on 6/Jan/07
Glenn, it appears on this site most would like to be in the 5'11-6'1 range. Thats a good range though. My friend is 6'5 and likes his height. For me I wouldn't wanna be too tall but not too short but any day I'd take 6'6 over 5'6.

It wasn't a smart comment. I was telling what I felt. I would hate to be that short. I'm happy at 6'0.5 even though I wouldn't mind being 6'2 at all. Glenn you're at a height of 5'8 where you're short but not super short like 5'6 and under.
Glenn said on 5/Jan/07

Leung said on 7/Dec/06
Yeah, there is only an inch difference. In most circumstances I would expect Williams to be at least 2 inches taller than Froddo. OK so how do we explain them looking very similar in height? A couple of things; it could have been a long day for Williams and he is at his low point during the day, and Froddo might be fresh off an inversion table.

williams could be reaching the age of shrinkenment, well very small amount
Leung said on 6/Dec/06
I agree, that pic with Robin Williams is amazing, my only explanation is that Froddo is standing on a telephone book

Editor Rob
he's about an inch smaller, see the wireimage gallery for straight on photo, but he's in converse, that is correct, williams, I can't make out his trainer...might be short aswell, similar.
leonari said on 6/Dec/06
The pic with williams is tricky...he is closer to the camera...I still go with the listed height : 5'5" it is!
sf said on 13/Nov/06
Yes, that proves it! Unless, of course, he had lifts on.......

i am 5'5 no three quarters no halves i was i was in two inch heels he was wearing boots that had maybe one inch sole we were the same height therefore the man is 5 foot 6 cause when i took my shoes off (they hurt my feet he was about two inches taller!!!

at 5'9, my range seems pretty limited, may i'm just no good at it. No shorter than 5'6 and no taller than 6ft.

There was this MTV punked episode w/ Wood who looked like a teenager; he looked really small, he was wearing sneakers; acted very girlish as well

I think it might be a bit true,the theory that we can spot out the shorter guys heights better Rob.

Editor Rob
well, at 5ft 8 you have the 5ft 4-6ft range pretty much covered, over 6ft+ maybe it can be harder to guess.

If you are 5ft 11 3/4 like Mr R, I guess you can judge better around 6ft etc...but, there might be tendency to underestimate the further from your height.
leonari said on 6/Jul/06
ROB: THANKS MAN! FINALLY Elijah has his correct height
Told you all along... He is tiny. But cool actor.
Glenn said on 6/Jul/06
Now you can really gauge that Im 5-8,cause I was one of those 5-5 supporters.and saw what you saw at your 5-8 level.

Editor Rob
yes, this is true...corroboration on 5ft 8ers ;-)
leonari said on 28/Jun/06
Now way shorter than 5'4.5" but never 5'6". Those heels look enourmous if you look close.
Dagger said on 27/Jun/06
It don't help much cause you can't really see what kind of heels they have on their shoes.
MD said on 9/Jun/06
Not sure how much this will help, but here he is with Billy Boyd, who the site gives 5'6"

1. Click Here

His shoe/boots look to be kind of thickly heeled, but he still looks to come out at least 5'5" here. I can't imagine shorter than 5'5" if Billy Boyd is really 5'6"
leonari said on 8/Jun/06
No way 5'6" way. Absolute max is 5'5" . 5'6" is his official height. What about the hollywood 2 inch rule ROB? Don't you take it into account?? why?
john link said on 3/Jun/06
I would say he is a little under 5'6".
British Guy said on 25/May/06
Come On!!

As I stated before am around 5ft 6/7in...

Truly believe that this guy is shorter than 5ft 6in!!

Elijah seems to be quite a fan of cowboy boots... HMHMMMMM
Anonymous said on 27/Apr/06
If he was actually a solid 5'6 you would hardly be able to tell from the pic, he looks closer to 5'5.
Dagger said on 26/Apr/06
Looking at the picture above and the way Glenn is leaning to the side I'd give an estimate of 5'5 for Elijah, and not an inch more. He does wear boots a lot and so might look taller. But out of bed I'd say 5'4 is the max. He looked pretty little on Ellen the few times I've seen him, and she's I think 5'7.
Polska said on 16/Apr/06
Rob, look how much Glenn is leaning in. His 5'5" estimation looks to be much closer to the truth.
Editor Rob said on 13/Apr/06
Peter Jackson: "we ended up looking for people that were around about five-foot-five to five-foot-seven. Yeah, only a two or three inch range. Because anything over -- if they were taller than that, they didn?t look right. So, if you look at the four Hobbits that we cast, I mean they're all exactly the same size. They're all like five-foot-six"
Leung said on 7/Apr/06
ForensicNYC, in the photo Frodo has his head tilted a bit and it appears that his posture could be better, doesn't appear to 4" difference.
Frodo is a little dude but 5'4" is an exaggeration, 5'5"-5'5.5" would be acceptable for the Frodo.
ForensicNYC said on 31/Mar/06
Eli must be wearing his LOTC hairy feet because if Glenn stands really erect, that would give him a clear 4" advantage... Glenn 5'8" less four inches would be acceptable...Eli is really 5'4"...
Leung said on 26/Mar/06
5’6” or 5’5” for Froddo is ok, but 160lbs is definitely out of the question. For someone that height to be 160lb they have either an athletic build or are a bit overweight, and Froddo looks neither so 145lb would be my estimate.
TNTinCA said on 23/Mar/06
160 pounds? That is ridiculous. 145 is feasible based on his height and body type. A friend of mine stands 5'10" and weighs 165 lbs with a much more muscular frame that Frodo.

I stood next to Elijah at the Strokes Show in Austin Texas on March 14th. I was in converses (at 5'7.75") and he was in boots and was two inches shorter. I think he could be 5'6" but 5'5" is probably a better flat-foot height.
Serene said on 13/Feb/06
Huh?? Eik..I don't think that Elijah is 5'4"..could be more than 5'4"..
Height Tracker said on 18/Jan/06
Rob, looks like all evidence points to Mr. Wood being 5'5". You should change him.
