i think peak jim carrey was taller. also will smith. this guy may be more in the arnold size. The others right around 187 but he and arnold 186-187 and proably closer to 186 flat.

Arch, you think he is "super" laid back about his looks? He is one of the most vain looking guys in the world, and only "plays down" his dress because wearing a baseball cap is not convenient without dressing scruffily. This is all centred on his baldness and toupe that he has been wearing since the 90s. I would not be surprised if this guy was under 6'. He had a great handful of songs in the early 2000s.

A few things I noticed about him:

- most of the time he wears chunky footwear (boots or sneakers with high insoles) which can make it hard to estimate his height - especially at live concerts

- he is slightly shorter than Novak Djokovic (listed 187 cm) by ~1.5 cm - so, I highly doubt that Enrique is the same height as Djokovic - he falls in the 185-186 cm range

- he is visibly taller than Nadal (weak 184 cm) by ~2 cm - so, Nadal might be a strong 183 cm rather than a weak 184 cm and Enrique falls in the 185-186 cm range again

- around the same height as Ronaldo (185 cm) - both being a strong 185 cm in the 185-186 cm range

So, a few conclusions regarding this topic:
- Nadal might be 183 cm instead of 184 cm
- Djokovic is indeed 187 cm
- Ronaldo is a strong 185 cm
- Enrique is somewhere in the 185-186 cm, just like Ronaldo, so a strong 185 cm as well

@OriginalAnon he isn't gonna wear two-inch lifts and go through Rob's radar. No chance under 6ft
Bradley said on 12/May/22
Weak 6-2.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Mar/22
Really?? He always struck me as a super laid back guy always wearing scruffy clothes, sneakers and a hat, trying to play down his looks if anything.
OriginalAnon said on 19/Mar/22
Every time I look at Iglesias I think he is a notorious lift wearer. Maybe somebody could show some photos from back before he was as famous as examples of his height. It wouldn't surprise me if this guy was actually under 6'. He is VERY careful about his appearance.
MarcusTheSwede said on 4/Mar/22
@ Darksol64 Yah came to same conclusion watching that episode to agree fully.
Jawilder said on 25/Feb/22
Strong 6โ€™1.
Darksol64 said on 24/Feb/22
@Marcus, I agree.

Seeing him next to Sheen the first time I thought yeah, definitely seems like a legit 6'1.5 or so guy.

Then I realized he had work boots on during the shots. (He was doing carpentry work for the scene, so not out of place)

Now I can't claim to know that the boots are adding a solid 2 inches or even 2.5 to his height. But they likely are at least 2", and if they are, it would effectively put him at minimum 6'2.5 (Sheen always wears low foot wear, 1 inch or even less) which means his eyes should be at or even over the top of his head. (Not counting hair) He's at least an inch or two below that mark from what I could tell.

That, combined with the picture Rob has for this listing suggests to me he is a fair bit shorter. He looks like a guy with a 6'0 range frame in the pic above.

I'll give him 6'0 and a half. I could be wrong, but I just don't see much over 6'
Rowan182cm said on 9/Feb/22
Looks like a strong 6'1 but not weak 6'2 range I think he's about 186cm
MarcusTheSwede said on 11/Aug/21
Agree with Originalanon. After seeing even more pictures on Enrique its clear he either wear lifts Inside and when not his heels on his boots massive.
ALEXIZ/180cm said on 9/Apr/21
185 cm
OriginalAnon said on 18/Aug/20
He seems like someone who does his best to up his appearance, with the wig etc. It wouldn't surprise me at all to find out he was a lift wearer. I think he is probably a 183cm guy who wears lifts.

Listing looks right on based on the pictures with ronaldo and nadal
MarcusTheSwede said on 4/Mar/20
@DannyD: If you even Ask that Question you prob on the wrong site. Here its about just that height. And to get it as accurate as possible. And No Enrique isnt 187cm he is without his massive heels boots at best 186cm also look at him Next to Ricky Martin. This listing is correct bcs he isnt 187cm much more likely 186 at best. Regards
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Dec/19
I think he could be almost 6ft2
Dannyd said on 28/Nov/19
Whats the point of being 186.7 cm than 187 cm? If you are 186.5 then you round up, so he is 187 cm in fact exactly.
Mike5 said on 3/Sep/18
Seems like a perfect example of a legit 1.87m Guy, give or take a hair under perhaps, but unlikely. Not 6โ€™2โ€ however
Rourke said on 11/Jul/18
He gives a tall impression, I think that 1.87m is spot on. Definitely had at least 4 inches on 5โ€™9 Charlie Sheen in Two and a half men
MarcusTheSwede said on 26/Feb/18
@TIM: Yah and I geuss he had his 5cm(excluded insole) Vibram sole boots on? He is at best 185cm without his MASSIVE Vibram Boots.
Blake said on 11/Dec/17
Rob, do you have any idea how tall Enrique's mother Isabel Preysler is? I have heard 5 ft 7 seems feasible to me
Editor Rob
that figure doesn't seem unreasonable, maybe over 5ft 6, at most 5ft 7
Tim said on 29/Nov/17
I am 186cms and met him at one of his concerts. He had a touch on me 187cm I would give him. I was sceptical he was tall until I met him.

"Hey Felipe, Bosรฉ has been described accurately to be 186cm, which is an smidgeon taller than 6'1"."

Hey, Alan! Only 3 years late, but I'm here, LOL!
Next to Ricky Martin, Miguel Bosรฉ seems to be 185cm. I think he has lost some height or Ricky Martin (listed as 181.6cm) needs an upgrade.
Take a look at them together: Click Here
MarcusTheSwede said on 19/Sep/17
Joe: Are you seem mad. Lol Well Enrique is between 183-185cm without his huge heels or and lift he could even be 183cm flat. Ok Joe you can Stop crying now there there. Its just an opinion Dont be afraid. Thanks
5'11.25 at noon. said on 7/Sep/17
You can't blame him if he's a lift wearer though a lot of male celebrities are lift wearers I've been to a concert of him and he was wearing tennis shoes like he is easily 6'0.75 to 6'1.
hardguy said on 2/Sep/17
taller than the rock to me at times in shoes
MarcusTheSwede said on 13/Aug/17
@Hijopotamus: Absolutely agree, studying lots of material on Enrique at stage and off stage clearly shows Enrique without his massive heels isnt taller then 183cm not more.
Slim 182 cm said on 6/Aug/17
Hippo, under 184.5 is impossible for Enrique, and I'm not convinced this guys a lift wearer, he'd have no reason to being so tall. Unlike brad pitt who is in limbo being at the border of Average and tall.
Sandy Cowell said on 5/Aug/17
Doesn't Enrique look like his Dad? Yes, he has the same dark brooding looks AND boasts an inch or so extra height! Many would consider him a lucky boy!
I will give him 6ft1.25 but he won't be getting a nice cup of tea from me just because he has the statutory male good looks! I'm not that easily bought!
But he can have a mediochre bottle of milk to help maintain himself this evening,๐Ÿผand a couple of rock cakes ๐Ÿช๐Ÿช!
Hijopotamus said on 18/Jul/17
Lift thick shoes wearer like Brad Pitt.
Enrique is 183 absolutely max
RichardSpain said on 18/Jul/17
His father Julio was exactly 6 feet when was young.

Enrique is a bit taller than his father was.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jul/17
Had close to 2in on his dad (legit 6ft). Not a flat 6ft1 guy
Octopussy said on 6/Jul/17
Enrique is a very handsome man, regardless if he is 6 ft or 6 .1 and so on. There is no woman in her right mind that will reject him. He is not short and he is not average. So what's the issue? The guy is 6.1 which is a very good height for a man
Joe said on 15/Jun/17
@MarcusTheSwede: I can't believe you're still here arguing for a downgrade. It's been 5 years or so since I've been seeing you here. 2014 was the last time I left this page and you're still here. You need to get a life dude.
Johnson said on 27/Apr/17
Enrique Iglesias is 187 and Prince Royce is 176-177
Richardspain said on 21/Apr/17
I don't know why many people think spanish people are short. It is false! Today a lot of spanish guys are taller. Our president Mariano Rajoy is 187cm our king Felipe is 197cm near 2 m.

Remember,Spanish people living in Europe not in Mexico or Ecuador. And to me Enrique is a solid 186cm not less, his father julio maybe 183cm when he was young, now Julio around 180cm because he has problems with his back and is a old man.
MarcusThe Swede said on 22/Mar/17
Need more proof Enrique is not 187cm. Look at this picture and look at Enrique arch his foot to gain height he also Wears thicker shoes Then(184cm Rafa) Click Here: Enrique isnt 187cm he is 183-184maximum. Rest my case Thanks
MarcusTheSwede said on 8/Mar/17
Enrique needs a downgrade based on fact. Next to Ronaldo although Ronaldo slouched Enrique still didnt look taller and on every single picture he use thick thick Vibram heeled boots , those boots have a heel(not taking in the sole inside shoe2-2.5cm) thats 4-6cm. Enrique always Wears thick thick shoes and he is maximum 183cm without his heels and boots. Thanks
1,80cm said on 17/Jan/17
Rob, are you talking into account that he might wear lifts? He looks 184cm to m me... Thoughts?
shiva 181 cms said on 28/Oct/16
Rob, you could safely downgrade him to 6'1 he doesn't look anything more than 6'1 counting footwear and posture with most celebs he's been pictured
shiva 181 cms said on 28/Oct/16
Rob,Enrique Iglesias height is 6'0.75 (184-185) or at most 6'1 he doesn't even look that tall with measured 185cms Ronaldo and with footwear advantage surely he isn't as high as 6'1.5 that 187 measurement surely came from a sneaker or shoe ,most of the pictures of Enrique with other celebs are wtthout visible footwear or with advantage
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Sep/16
187-188cm range is what I have him pegged atโ€ฆ
181cm said on 14/Aug/16
He is 188cm, no question about it, i saw Enrique next to Djocovic who's a legit 188cm and both exactly the same height, Enrique is a really tall guy.
Pucko said on 9/Jul/16
I'd bet my house on 6'1.75 rather then 6'1.5 Click Here Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Mar/16
Rob, any guesses for Julio Iglesias?

Click Here - Only time he's been pictured w/h Enrique
Click Here - More recently w/h Rafael Nadal

I think 6ft1 peak and maybe still 6ft today or close. He's 72 now.
Editor Rob
I'm struggling to see him 6ft 1, 6ft peak I'd go with.
J said on 22/Feb/16
Often in high heels, lifts. 187 cm?!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/16
Rob, is 188cm possible?
Editor Rob
you couldn't rule it out
MarcusTheSwede said on 15/Jan/16
He doesnt look taller Then Ronaldo and Ronaldo slouching. Enrique Wears huge heels. Just Google Enrique heels. He Wears Vibram thick thick sole. He is tall but not more Then 185-186 without massive heels.
hugh said on 11/Oct/15
He is so tall and handsome he is like 187 just look his picture with cristiano ronaldo who is 186
Jayne Sheehy said on 5/Oct/15
I knew Enrique was 6'2"+. He is very tall. And he always refers to his legs as "chicken legs". Well, I wouldn't mind a taste of them as I wouldn't mind a taste of Enrique himself!! Lol :)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Sep/15
Rob, could you add Julio Iglesias?

I can buy 6ft1 peak and today about 6ft. No recent pictures of father and son to make a comparison though. But I reckon Enrique would have close to 2in on him.

Marcus, you talk too much, girl.
MarcusTheSwede said on 31/May/15
And by the way: Enrique is one awsome Singer and artist and person but that has nothing to do with discussing his f height. Look at him with 185 Ronaldo. Both in trainers. Just Google the picture. Enrique is tall no discussion about that but ge always always wear thick thick Vibram soles on his concerts or and high sneakers he needs a downgrade he has a very perfect lean body that makes him look taller but about same height as Ronaldo nothing more. Thanks.
MarcusTheSwede said on 31/May/15
hipo: well I really dont want to be rude to you back as an x paratrooper I can assure youre troubled mind I havent BUT here we discuss height and I can assure you this Its much more intresting when famous people claim a height they dont really have. And thats what I personally find very intresting. If you dont like it I suggest you read people that upgrade I and many others here search for the truth. And If you find that hard to understand well Then you are really on the wrong forum. We discuss here and hey I can be wrong sometimes but its rare. And just so you understand I dont f dislike actors or models no matter and either way the round up their height or not we are all out for the truth and focusing on that is good enough here. Understod. Good boy. Thanks and end of pointless answer to no name idiot subject person.

Enrique is 6'1. Downgrade neccesary

187 all right, very tall. Marcustheswede, dude you do have a height complex. You keep downgrading everyone and that is very suspicious and fishy.
him said on 5/May/15
he's tall like listed here, but why he still wear thick boost????
fish said on 25/Apr/15
I think he looks exactly what he is listed here next to charlie sheen in 2 and a half men
dhungie said on 22/Apr/15 reeallyy tall! Could you plz not act to not accept that... critics! And you all are not even anyone who can assume his height jst by looking at some of his pics and videos... he's very much perfect regarg his complexions
anonymous510 said on 29/Mar/15
Looking at the episode of two and half men where he is guest starring, the guy seems omly a little taller than 5'9" charlie sheen and charlie doesnt wear lifts so at best around 183-184 cm, his lean disposition makes him seem taller
Ana said on 19/Mar/15
I just found out that Julio Iglesias, Enrique's father, is listed as 6 ft 1 in goo'gle. I've looked at photos of him and he really does look tall. Quite tall for a man of his age, born in Spain. But of course, he's from upper class family. That makes quite a difference. And no wonder Enrique is that tall too. Tall family it seems.
MarcusTheSwede said on 19/Dec/14
ValeryL: So you Say.....any pictures what model of sport shoes some has about 3cm heel and even the one that looks flat still often have a total 2cm atleast not the sole included I still think he is much shorter just look With Ronaldo Who I think is listed 185cm next to Enrique well there are no diffrence and they had same sort of trainers on and Enrique standing With better posture he is 185 at best without huge Vibram or thick soles majority of pictures proofs it so IF no one can find a full body picture with shoes included this listing still to High needs downgrade to 185.
ValeryL said on 7/Dec/14
I am proper 188-189 and took photo with him couple days ago before his show he was in flat sport shoes and we were similar of maybe 1 cm different. So I think 187 is righ.t I am a girl and I hate my huge height so have no reason for lying.
MarcusTheSwede said on 15/Oct/14
appe4: Thanks! Finally someone has got it right. And seen those boots shoes with massive heel that he always wears Vibram with massive massive outersole and inner build up not in count only the outer sole is massive. Finally someone sees it.
Enrique needs a downgrade. I love him to death but this listing needs to be downgraded.
Serge said on 5/Oct/14
I met him in Mexico twice in my hometown, 6'1", he was taller than Mickey Rourke and Johnny Depp and much taller than Antonio Banderas.
appe4 said on 26/Sep/14
I am a weak 185 and I met him in 2012; we were face to face 2m distance, he was not taller than me but he had on these shoes @MarcusTheSwede talked about. I would bet money on his 184-185 height! Rob, downgrade
MarcusTheSwede said on 31/Aug/14
LISTEN. Pictures where not whole body shows are WORTHLESS.
Full body pictures with shoes are the only one that tells the truth.
Enrique is always always wear thick vibram soles that give him atleast 5cm and that incount not the build up inside.
Pictures without whole body and shoe isnt worth anything so dont post them doesnt matter who he stands beside if not the whole body and shoes can be seen
Alan said on 30/Aug/14
Hey Felipe, Bosรฉ has been described accurately to be 186cm, which is an smidgeon taller than 6'1".

In this picture Click Here he is next to the Spanish superstar Miguel Bosรฉ (who is 185cm tall) and he (Enrique) seems to be just a little bit taller.

Size of Enrique 1.90cm / 6.2ft

I think that is the real length of 1.89 or 1.90 and Shoe thick (taller) I think 1.95cm
Proof image with Juan Luis Guerra was there a difference by 2 or 3 cm Note that the length of the last 2.00 cm
Joe said on 21/Jun/14
Strange how some websites still list him at 6'3.
MarcusTheSwede said on 9/Jun/14
Enrique is 184cm. I thought he was taller BUT..lately Ive seen him and he always always wears Vibram soles and they are thick as nothing out of this world. They would give him 2-3cm minimum and next to Cristiano shows clearly he is not 187 he wears sneakers and same height and thats generous. He is 184 not more. He always wears massive Vibram soles and appear 187 but he is at best 184 without them. Im a great fan of him but know I see why he always wears them. The pic with Cristiano also nailed it. This listing needs a downgrade.
Ryan said on 16/May/14
Enrique is 1.84
Kerry said on 12/May/14
Is imposible. 1.85 max - 1.84
Infinite guy said on 2/May/14
My Calculation for Enrique's height:
From that picture with Cristiano who is 185.5 cm tall, has 2 cm thinner soles than Enrique's, if he wears the same heels, I think they would be same,but with a good posture Enrique can pull off 186 cm, so I think 186 cm will be a good shout for him.
strong said on 19/Apr/14
flat 6 foot, yet he had a big thick insoles yet he was smaller than me, I'm 188 cm.
Gilipollas said on 6/Apr/14
In that pic with Cristiano, Enrique has footwear advantagw
E. Btw Cristiano is 185 max. Enrique is 184 max but always uses thick sole footwear plus his wig and slender figure people can think he's taller than he really is.
sss said on 4/Apr/14
187, 2 cm taller than legit 6'1 Ronaldo. I mean, Ronaldo really is the epitome of 6'1.
MarcusTheSwede said on 11/Mar/14
MD : Yes I agree this listing is correct so we think the same. 187 is the acceptable but not a millimeter more. I also saw him in Two and a Half men with 175cm Charlie Sheen..and well Enrique is 187 at best but I can agree 186-187 is ok. Not more. 192 was ridiclious and that was what I aimed for to claim he is definately not. 186-187 at best. We are at the same page there.=)
MD said on 7/Mar/14
Nice find, MarcusTheSwedge, though, I'd definitely give him this listing. He's taller than 185cm Ronaldo, but it's a very slight difference.
MarcusTheSwede said on 6/Mar/14
He is 186-187 Look at this picture with Ronaldo: Click Here
And that is with shoes. And with a height advantage to Ronaldo cause Enrique got thicker soles on his shoes.
Enrique is AT BEST 187cm at best.
MarcusTheSwede said on 11/Nov/13
No no not six two. Enrique is maximum 186cm he Always wears Heavy duty boots. Atleast 5cm heel and that is not measured with inner sole.
He is not 187cm have seen him in Stockholm Sweden and I am 183cm with converse and he was at best 3.5cm maximum taller and that was with boots standing outside same Hotel same door. He was tall but without those boots not taller then max 186.Max. This listing is generous. But I can go with it.But generous 187.Thanks for great site.
Dejavu said on 20/Sep/13
He is very close to 6'2. He looks about an inch taller than Ronaldo who is a strong 6'1.
MarcusTheSwede said on 12/Sep/13
I have to correct myself.
Enrique is maximum 186cm
Look at this Picture: Click Here
He wear heels with Vibram sole. That sole is a Heavy duty sole several centimeters high.
I have looked to almost every Picture of Enrique thats out there. And also seen him in those shoes with Vibram outer sole. And he is at most 186cm without shoes.
BigJoe said on 3/Sep/13
He's not 186, he must be 187 but not 188.
cole said on 6/Aug/13
He seems to round up a bit when he claims 6'2. Just under 6'2 is what I would have guessed.
MarcusTheSwede said on 2/Aug/13
If anybody of you all search youtube for Enrique Iglesias at Lopez Tonight show. You can see Enrique next to Prince Royce 173cm height and next to Lopez. In the video everybody can see he Towers over Royce and 186-187 is correct. You also se his shoes. He has a heel but consider the height diffrence if you would pictureit without heel he still would be a strong 185-186cm
I Think this listing is correct. He is a tall guy.
MarcusTheSwede said on 23/Jul/13
Gilipollas: You probably never have seen him or Heard him sing live.
For the first. He is 186-187 cm not a centimeter under that. I have seen him live both in Sweden and in US and he is atleast 186 atleast. I have seen him also at beach without any shoes on, I am 183cm and he had atleast 3 cm on me.
He is a tall guy so all the talk about 183 cm you can forget. Dont speak if you dont have any real facts to back it up or have seen him in person. Also he sings awsome. I have Heard him live and dont know **** about anything. He sings awsome not only at youtube or recorded songs also live he is one of a kind the best voice ever. So dont even begin with sings horrible he has the sharpest voice and the best male voice in this World. If you dont understand that well..I really feel sorry for you Gilipollas. Maybe you dont hear yeh thats probably that.
Thanks for great site and please...if you just talk **** and dont back things up with facts..dont..just dont. If you have facts write.
Thanks for great site.

Can someone explain this, please? What do you think Rob? Enrique at 187 en Jason Segel at 193, yet no visual significant difference..

I noticed the same while watching HIMYIM. But Jason is obviously not the full 6'4, more like 191-192. So let's say Enrique is honest and really is the full 6'2, or at least close enough. A hunched Jason Segel would be around 6'2 - 6'2.5, and the camera angles does the rest.

Why? 6'1.5" isn't very tall and Enrique has always had chicken legs and been quite gangly in frame which makes him look tall. Honestly I was far more surprised at Timberlake claiming almost 6'2"!!. I had always thought he was quite short.
Zach said on 20/Jan/13
Anyone got the Ross video? Ross is a legit 6'1, would be good to see them side by side.
MarcusTheSwede said on 9/Dec/12
Sylinher: Yes I agree he towered Pitbull in that picuture but in videos if you look for example youtube..well Enrique is taller then Pitbull..offcourse expected as Pitbull is listed 171...then even a 179cm guy would look visiable much taller..but if Enrique is 187 he really really should tower him in more pictures and also in videos that show them together. And he doesnt. He is visible taller but not as much as 187 cm...I think he is about 185.186 at most.
Without those shoes also.
Enrique is great..and he is are so way out wrong..Enrique is tall. No doubt about that..
But 187 sounds little to much even for a big Enrique fan..and I have seen in also in irl , I am 185cm and without those shoes he has on..I dont think he is much or even taller then me..looking at him at street he looked like a tall guy..but not..much taller then 185. 186.He is tall but maybe time to downgrade little.
Sylinher said on 9/Nov/12
to MarcusTheSwede...i dont know what kind of pitbull and enrique's photos are you talking about...but in this one...Click Here
enrique complete towers pitbull...i mean the diference of heights is really yeah if pitbull is 1.71 enrique is a legit 1.87
Doodss said on 5/Nov/12
No way he is over 6'. 5'9-5'10. Maybe even 5'8. Look at those dayum heels on those shoses. close to 3" at least. And he probably wears another 1" inside. that's 4 inches. 6'1.5 is way too high. More like 5'9.5
Terrence said on 31/Oct/12
He was as tall or taller than Jason Segel, who is listed here at 6ยด4, in How I met your mother. And please donยดt try to tell me itยดs all footwear and camera angles, because it was a straight shot, and Enrique was wearing sandals. Does that make him 6ยด5? Someone needs a big downgrade, and Iยดm not talking about Enrique Iglesias.

julio iglesias maybe when he was young 6' 1' now he looks shorter than rafael nadal 6' 1.5'.
Peyman said on 26/Aug/12
To me Enrique Iglesias always appears tall not quite 6ft 2in but definitely more than 6ft 1in , 6ft 1.5in is a fair shot for him & yes very tall as a spanish
I also think Jonathan Ross is a solid 6ft 1in guy .
& a peak 6ft 0in is my estimate for Julio Iglesias.
nick said on 11/Aug/12
Enrique one can say u r smaller than 6'2 u r aproxx 187

If Cristiano Ronaldo we know is 185'5 measured with laser, in this photo Enrique is 187 aprox. Click Here
By the way , his father Julio Iglesias was 1'81-1'82 when young.
afg2nvy said on 23/Jan/12
Yeh he only seemed about a cm taller than 185 Cristiano ronaldo so 186-187 is about right. Once again Rob has nailed it.
Shaun said on 22/Jan/12
Real short, because he is under 6'2"... LOL. @ nice guy He can look 6'3" actually in those boots he wears and probably is. I think I remember him looking about this next to the G maestro, or he was slouching or something, can't remember..
Chris said on 5/Jan/12
In a concert I stood next to him for a few seconds while he gave me his autograph and he looked only an inch taller than me, like 2-3 cms. I'm 6'0.5 just out of bed (184,15 cms) but this was at 9 pm so probably I dropped almost 1 cm by that hour. If I was 183,15 cms in that moment he was no more than 186 cms. So he is taller than 6'1, probably 6'1.5 in the day and 6'1.25 at night but he was clearly not a full 6'2 guy. Both were in casual shoes, no apparent difference in footwear. Agree with the listing.

Juan Kipanki said on 25/Dec/11
I've been very close to him and he is really very tall. I thought he was 1,87 m not more, bat not less.
I'm 1,8288 m exactly , just the same as 6 ft, and he was unless 2 inches taller than me.
We both were barefoot in a beach bar in Marbella
Godred said on 18/Dec/11

I think he is pretty tall coz when he stands by pitbull or antonio,he is taller... Looove you Enrique,i wish that you come to croatia......
nice guy said on 1/Nov/11
if he says he is 6'2 he is probably a weak 6'1 flat and a very weak 6'2 in shoes...which takes me back to how funny neil patrick harris statement was since he claims being 6'-6'1, but was like 4 inches shorter than enrique in "how i met ur mother" xD
Anden said on 26/Oct/11

@Pinky He doesn`t look the full 6`2 to me, 186 or 187 for me.
Pinky said on 27/Sep/11
I didn't think Enrique was so tall.
Pictures of Adriana Lima and Erin Heatherton with Enrique: Click Here
if you clic in the photos you can make them larger, and in the one with 5 people, you can see the shoes a little.

Adriana according to her modeling agency (which are not always believable) is 5'10", and I belive that 5'10" and don't think she is less than 5'9".
Erin Heatherton is in the same agency as Adriana, and they say Erin is 5'11".
VS usually gives Adriana higher heels than Erin, but Erin is taller than Adriana. I thought Erin reached 6', and thought Enrique would also be about 6'.
But after seeing those photos, not anymore.

Adriana's heels must be high and also with platform, Erin's booties are not flat. And Enrique's shoes increase his height, but still, Enrique and Erin can not be 6' as I thought.
So Enrique must be 6'2" as he said, and Erin is not 6'

then again, Banderas looks 170 so that would place Enrique at a more plausible 183 *
Rich Hall said on 28/Jun/11
yup at least 187 cm if Antonio is 174 *

wow I always thought he was average height! Funny how he's tall but doesn't appear to be when by himself with no point of reference. Maybe it has to do with his arms a bit on the short side (proportionally speaking that is).

they would be very close, toss a coin to who would be taller I think.
mememme said on 24/Feb/11
i belive he is 6'2 becuase if you go to his website, there are fans who have met him and they ALWAYS talk about how tall he really is in person. they even have pictures of him standing next to the fans who claim he is very tall and they compare the height difference and once there was a picture of a 5'4 girl next to him and he was basically towering her. i believe it was almost a whole foot difference so 6'2 should be right becuase the fans always put him as a 6'4 guy but i think they were just over exagerating.

I think Dany is right.Enrique is 6.1 without the 2 inc shoes he always wear.Have looked at hundreds of pictures and seing the video when he sings beside Ciara said it all.She had high heals and comparing with his footwear he is max 6.2 without shoes.Great singer.Awsome but 6.2 max.
Clay said on 11/Jun/09
Segel is 6'2.75 or 6'3 at best, not 6'4.
wedge said on 10/Jun/09
He has to be a real 6'2". I'm going to echo those comments about seeing him next to Jason Segal (6'4") in How I Met Your Mother. They looked practically the same height. Similar footwear too. Jason was slouching a bit but there could not be more than a 2 inch difference.
Josh.J said on 28/May/09
pics of enrique and ciara.
Click Here
looks like there's about 3(maybe some change) inches between them.
Click Here
footware pics. ciara has 3 inch heels, enrique has thick shoes. ciara probably has around 2 inches heel advantage. so thats 5 inches between them. ciara is around 5'8 so that makes enrique around 6'1~6'1.5

I went to see him in concert at the O2 arena in london and i was sitting at the front. He wears boots that have nearly 2 inch heels. This is a fact. He is 6ft 2 - IN BOOTS. Barefoot he is probaly around 6ft 1.
Meister said on 27/Apr/09
I agree that Enrique doesn't look that tall, even with his build, but I was surprised when I recently saw an episode of How i met your mother (episode 1, season 3), where he seems to be practically the same height as jason segel.
Either Jason's height (listed as 6'4) is overestimated or enrique really is a very strong 6'1.

Doug said on 18/Apr/09
Looks about 185 cm next to Glenn. I've always thought he is a legit 6'1"er and wears boots. That with his slim build makes him look taller. I've always seen him listed in magazines at 6'1" (and they normally claim things like Vin Diesel is 6'4" and that too!). His father Julio was 6'1" too. I'd buy 187 max for I don't think he is the full 6'2" barefoot. In boots he must be 6'3"ish though which he always seems to wear.

Rob why don't you give this photo the same treatment you gave the Lazenby pic. Can't you work out his height from the statometer is comparison with Glenn's height?

Editor Rob
there's a lot more variables with other people's photos than my own.

That was a pretty interesting stuff you said there. When I said that thingy about economics being good can encourage the growth of a few generations, I did not mean that because they have more money they become taller Bud! I was simply saying that if several generations of people have more access to a variety of foods and are well nourished it could effect the potential of growth for those generations. Pretty interestin' stuff you got there Big Fella!

Where did you get the average height of 18 year old males in Spain is "more than 5'10"? Last time I checked it was just about 5'8.9 (175cm) with the entire male population being 5'7 and the average young man (no more than 30 years old) being 5'8 and it was recently.
Clay said on 8/Apr/09
Someone being 2-3 cm's taller than you does not mean they "tower" over you. To tower over someone you would have to be a at least 5 inches taller than them.

Dani: Ok I also think 187 is ridicilous..I am a big fan of him.But I believe you when u say he was about 1inch taller then you..and that would make him about 183.5. I think it is time to downgrade him in height. He always wears reeealy high heeled shoes in many pictures..not 187cm tall.time to downgrade..

yeah Marcus, i know that swedes are really tall. I was more impressed in Sweden and Norway than in The Netherlands. I live in Minnesota USA which is the tallest state in America. Many people here have swedish and norwegian ancestry. I see many 6"2+ guys here in Minnesota. Im 5"11(181cm) and feel really average in this state considering that the average for male in the USA is 5"9.

i recently saw Enrique on how i met your mother. semmed surprisingly tall. he seemed very close to jason segel's height of 6'4. i also have to add that segel was wearing sneakers and enrique was donning flat sandals so segel had more heel advantage. i have to agree with the man's own words and say he is a solid 6'2 if not a little taller. i guess its hard to judge his height since he does not get many roles on screen.
dani said on 3/Mar/09
6'0(1.83) should do it for Enrique Iglesias. He doesn't look like 187cms at all. I was in one of his concerts and he looked 6"1 with boots. Most celebrities lie one or two inches about their real heights. I think that dutch people exaggerate about their heights a lot. I went to Holland and visited Amsterdam, Utrecht and Flevoland a year ago with my family. Im 5"11(181cm), my brother is 5"10(1.79cm) and my dad is 5'9(175cm). I thought we were gonna be overtowered pretty bad by the dutch but I saw many people between 5'10 and 6'1 period. I have to be honest with everybody here: i didn't see many dutch over 6'1 in those cities. I didn't feel like a dwarf.I felt average in Holland. Dutch people are the tallest average however i saw taller people in Sweden. I saw many 6'2+ in Sweden, swedish people are super tall, they blew my mind.
ancient Aztec Guy said on 25/Feb/09
I beleive it is true when they say that economics in turn can affect averages in height. Of course when the economy is well several generations are likely better nourished and have more potential to grow. Also There were many beliefs that encouraged capitalism like knight of the order said. It seemed where Lutheranism spread, capitalism followed.
glenn said on 23/Feb/09
knight of the order is right.some say taller than 12 feet actually.
Knight of the Order said on 22/Feb/09
There is fossil evidence that suggests giants existed all over the earth in antiquity. If you google it you will find tons of evidence. Scientifically this hypothesis can be proven since various old life forms on earth (i.e. redwood trees) are of colossal size compared to its contemporaries which suggest that in the distant pass the earth atmosphere was thicker which made it possible for organisms (including man) to grow much bigger than now. This hypothesis has been also verified and replicated in control experiments which scientifically speaking, show the finding to be conclusive. But as most scientists know the motivation to suppress real history found by means of archeology/fossil record and carbon dating is that science is utilize and link by oligarchs to socio-economic systems like capitalism which utilized as a platform social Darwinism. Without Darwinism, capitalism will not exist or it will be very difficult to sell to all of us. Specifically, with growing atheism and its cynic effect, and the notion that we are just biological life forms formed by evolution and natural selection, the justification that man is simply an asset under amoral capitalism appears to be justified. Therefore, any archeological evidence or theory to challenge Darwinism is either suppress, vanished, or ridiculed.
As far as myths, in general there is always a grain in truth in them. Old newspaper articles and scientific journals published during the gold rush and the colonization of North America recorded various events where Indians showed to various settlers human remains of colossal size which suggested beings of 12 feet height but as it is common in this type of findings, the evidence simply just vanished. On the same note, it also possible that in the ancient past giants also walked the lands of Central and South America. If you bear in mind the technology necessary to lift the enormous megaliths to build the pyramids, which is still a challenge with today's technology, one deduction is that perhaps beings of colossal size were responsible for building these extraordinary structures. As a last note, in the Book of Enoch, the giants of antiquity are not only mentioned but numbered as a population as well which suggests a fact not a myth.
ancient Aztec Guy said on 21/Feb/09
HEY Knight of the Order,
Is that right some Indians as tall as 12ft. Thats amazing. Since you may not be farmiliar with the Giant native American myths I thought I would just add another Spanish claim. I also heard a myth that during the Cortez conquest of the Mexico, Cortez came across the Tlaxcala natives. They showed Cortez a leg bone which the Spanish claimed was taller than most of their soldiers! Im guessing the average height of Spaniards in the 16th century was about 5'8ish. Very interesting stuff there Knight of the Order!
Knight of the Order said on 13/Feb/09
Ancient Aztec Guy,
I am not familiar with myths on giants during the Conquest of the Americas. My citation on the giant indians of Patagonia is based on the entries made by a scribe/historian of Venitian royal birth who was aboard one of the Galleons with explorer Ferdinand Magellan during the first expedition that navigated around the globe. The scribe wrote about the indians in detail and to me this is not myth but factual. Various English explorers also reported sightings of giants indians in Patagonia (some as tall as 12 feet!) but I will not placed their reports as reliable since after England became the premier world power or after most of the Spanish Armada sank during a nasty storm in the English channel, the English denied the existence of the giants indians and the coverup to preserve Darwinism by the English began...but that is another subject.
knight of the order said on 12/Feb/09
Another interesting fact to cite in regards to the height of Spaniards of the 16th century and the soldiers of Spain in the Americas or conquistadores as they are commonly known is that they were not short compared to all the Europeans of the time. If we take into account the average height of the descendants of the conquistadores which are now part of the oligarchies of Spanish America, one can note with that the majority of them are of above average height compared to the rest of the local population. But a more reliable way to observe and verify this height difference is through face value or when one visits any country or various countries in Latin America.

Another fact to note in terms of average height of a conquistador is that Spain was the only European nation to have and employ full-time professional soldiers in the 16th century. It enlisted in its ranks citizen-soldiers from all territories under Spanish rule including Austria and the Netherlands.

As a related footnote, perhaps the variable of economic surplus and high nutrition enjoyed by present day Spaniards as a cause of increase in height has reliable validity which can also explain the above average height of the Spanish America oligarchies. For example, some of the fortunes accumulated by some families in the oligarchies can challenge any family

(last revision: sorry webmaster but this is my final version, please delete all my previous postings, thank you)
The fact is that during the conquest of the Americas, the Spanish Conquistadors under the leadership of the Queen of Spain were ordered to convert the indigenous people or Indians to Christianity and to teach them the Spanish language and culture and thus, the Indians of Central America and South America survived the conquest of the Americas.

Unlike the British, who exterminated and nearly genocide the North American Indians except the few left who were isolated in reservations, the Indians of the rest of the Americas were allowed to live because of Christianity and the royal decree by the Crown of Spain (Queen Isabella who was influenced by one royal adviser named Ferdinand the Wise) who declared that all man were created equal under God (as the Bible commands and as Christian Spain believed at the time).

However it is important to note the descendants of Spanish royals and high ranking military officers who were sent to Spanish America to manage the colonies, became the Spanish-Creole oligarchies (@ 5 % of the total population of Spanish America), who were covertly responsible for the push for independence from Spain for self-interests and with objective to retain non-shared political-economic power (owned more than 75% - 90% of the land and 80% of corporations and industries) which have lasted for more than 300 years to the present time (as is the case of the US: English-creoles have retained similar percentages and traced their lineage to various royal families of Europe).

However it is important to note the descendants of Spanish royals and high ranking military officers who were sent to Spanish America to manage the colonies, became the Spanish-Creole oligarchies (@ 5 % of the total population of Spanish America), who were covertly responsible for the push for independence from Spain for self-interests and with objective to retain non-shared political-economic power (owned more than 75% - 90% of the land and 80% of corporations and industries) which have lasted for more than 300 years to the present time (as is the case of the US: English-creoles have retained similar percentages and traced their lineage to various royal families of Europe).

looking at enrique i think he looks like if he is 5'11 barefoot with shoes 6'00 feet with boots 6'1. im 5'10 with blood from italy,spain, chinese and cherokee. i look more italian at 5'10 barefooted with shoes 5'11 boots 6'00. i have 8 brothers our grandparents immigrated to mexico and mixed with cherokee and the tahrumara indians which are very tall and with some cherokee being 6'00. but i also have chinesse blood that immigrated to mexico. both chinesse and italians immigrated to mexico in the 19 cetury because of the war and later immigrated into the us in the 1960s. my chinesse ancestors standing at 5'7 and today most of my chinese relatives stand at 5'10. back to my brothers its 8 of us i stand at 5'10 most of my brothers are from 5'11 to 6'00 one of them averages at 6'6 most of us have brown eyes but except for one he has blue eyes when my dad was young he would stand at 6'00 tall and my mom is 5'2 my mom is indian and chinesse with brown eyes my dad is spanish and italian with blue eyes. im 5'10 and my brother is 6'6 i think my height comes from chinesse and italian and my 6'6 brother comes from italian and tahrumara indian which are very tall indians in northern mexico. i also think genetics play a role in your height. im an electrician that goes to allot of houses a day and most spanish people from spain that i have met are in the range of 5'8 but i have also met tall ones at 6'1 the same goes for the other races even the indians from india are know as being short but i have also seen really tall ones. we tend to go towards what surrounds us or what country we are born in but if we know our genetics background we can also be something else that we dont even look like so study your background. i once met a man that was black he looked more like blue that is how dark his skin once and he told me that he went to the dr. and they did a blood test on him and found out he had european blood. i had a friend in high school that both of his parents were black and he was very white so just because you are from one part of the world does not mean every one is short or tall.

Steffen, you are correct to a certain extent when you cite various factors that may have contribute the height increase of the Spaniars and other ethnic groups. However, the term latin is misused in context, because Spaniards are descendant of greeks, celts, goths, romans, etc. Their european ancentry is notable in its people in contrast to latin americans which are in most countries in average 5% european and 20% creoles, and the rest indiginous people or american indian descent.
The point is that you cannot group Spaniards with latin americans. They are two distict groups genetically speaking.
The term latin is to note the root of a language (Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian and Romanian). To my knowledge when I have visited Spain, the people looked in general of average height but not short. As you pointed out, the malnutrition of the post-Franco era maybe contributed to the shorten of height but now that is not the case. Spain is among the ten economies of the world and getting closer to the top five. Height is mapped in our DNA, and if it
is not properly given nutrients it becomes dormant. In the accounts found in the aztec record, the Spaniards are described by the indians as tall white bearded gods(men). Most people who visit Spain are surprised to see a different kind of people to what is portrayed in the general media. I think that part of the fault is the Hollywood and American propaganda to antagonize other people which is what they do with latin americans living in the US(mostly of indian descent and of low social class). Some people in this forum need to travel more...
Karen said on 16/Dec/08
alot of Aussie men are short too, I like a man at least 4inches taller than me,which wouldn't think hard, but all the good ones are taken anyway.
Steffen said on 12/Dec/08
I think its become a stereotype that latin men are short, but with the way things are inthe world we cannot say that, I see it in the middle-east, where they too were thoguht to be short, but now its so much more different. They're producing generations of Tall sleek gorgeous superbeings all colourings all types. I think it applies a lot to the mediterranean too. Maybe its the food maybe its hormones whatever it is, it is working. Both for the men and women. I think also there's a lot of interracial & cultural marriages which also contribute to that growth.

Looks tall. 6ft2 is also not out of the question.
Josh said on 23/Nov/08
He is 6'1!!!

About the comments on height in Spain, the reason is that it has changed a lot for economic reasons. Before Spain was a country with rather short people, now it is a country with rather tall young people. Look at this article:

interesting mimi.
stephanie said on 12/Nov/08
i been to a enrique iglesias concert and to me he was 6 feet at the most , i guess he looks taller depending what shoes he wears. on the thing about mexican men being short i can only coment on my own experience. my ex husband is 5,5 and he is from michoacan. my boyfriend at the time is 6,1 he was born here but both his parents are from durango. he is also diferent in that his skin is very light and he has green eyes, most of his family is tall and light skined. so maybe there is something about what part of mexico there from.
....... said on 5/Nov/08
if you look in the do you know video, he is wearing boots and they generally have short heels whereas enrique was wearing flats, so i assume with boots on, Mike boogey is 6'3 and there seems to be a one inch difference. So, 6'2 is exactly enrique iglesias's height. tall guy indeed
Garga said on 1/Nov/08
How tall is mike "boogey" Malin from big brother 2? Because in the beginning of the "do you know" song by enrique he looks a tad taller.
Hippo Helen said on 29/Oct/08
I fancy him even more now that I know how tall he is - I thought I was going to be disappointed and find out he was about 5-8 - I am so happy!

Some Austrian guys came to visit our company some days ago. All of them very well educated, which means the upper hand of the population regarding height. On average they were about 1.81m-1.82m.
Amazing Grace said on 26/Oct/08
4 inches after 18 is not a lot try 9 inches in one year.
....... said on 9/Oct/08
he said he grew AFTER high school. So i checked another site and it said he was 5'10 and now his height is basically 6'2. 4 inches after the age of 18 is ALOT.
TJ said on 28/Sep/08
Jesus. Jonathan Ross is so stupidly impressed by people being tall.
Dany said on 25/Sep/08
Click Here - if you see this, then you would agree that he looks around 6ft - 6ft 1.
Dany said on 25/Sep/08
hey i'm 6ft and half. Btw the people who've met him, - are you sure he was 6ft 1 or 6ft 2. Doesn't he wear boots with a high heel ???
Visitor said on 24/Sep/08
MD, your information is wrong. There are recent studies for the entire Spanish male population (not just for the younger generations) quoting values between 5'8'' (173 cm) and 5'9.5'' (176 cm). That means pretty much the European average. Please check your sources.

6' 2". Had Glenn by 5" and Glenn was in Portman's
tur said on 26/Jun/08
Enrique house is in Madrid, the average height in Madrid 5'9.7 inches (177 cm) , from my point of view 6 ft 1.5 inches is tall, not "virtually a giant".
I would say this phrase about people from Guatemala
MD said on 24/Jun/08
Tur, none of those folks are average height in Spain. Just because you can pick out a few people doesn't make them average. According to all recent studies, the average height in Spain is 5'8" (173 cm) for the younger generations, and 5'7" (170 cm) for the entire adult population. In some provinces it's as high as 5'9.7" (177 cm) for 18 year olds, but that is it.
tur said on 24/Jun/08
You're like virtually a giant in Spain? Spain Prince is 6'6 barefoot, Spain president Zapatero is 6'1, Pau Gasol is 7'1... spanish people are not short

Just felt I wanted to post this. Official statistics of Netherlands with the average height in all of the parts of Netherlands.
Garga said on 11/Jun/08
I was watching an episode of how i met your mother in which he was starring (i think its the 1st episode of season3), and at one point, he crossed the doorway and seemed surprisingly tall next to Jason Segel, who had 1.5-2inches one Enrique.
He really looked near 6-2.
MD said on 6/Jun/08
Yeah, the Dutch prove that it's not all about genetics, because they were some of the shorter people in Europe before World War II. It's all about diet and their health care system.
Edward fan said on 6/Jun/08
Yeah I got a friend who's parents are 5'8 and 5'9 he is 6'8 and a half. It's crazy, it just comes to prove genetics don't determine everything. The parts I where talking about who average around 6'3 ( Groningen, Friesland) are parts with alot of farmers and alot of agriculture, so I suspect they are taller cus they eat more dairy products.
Viper said on 6/Jun/08
The average is close to 6-3 in some parts? Thats insane.
Edward fan said on 5/Jun/08
I'm sorry to dissapoint you Heightjudgde, but the current average man in Holland , is 1.85 tall, and in some parts of the country it's even closer to 1.90. I come From Holland and I can tell you this is very much true, people here are very tall. Look it up anywhere if you don't believe it.
heightjudge said on 29/Apr/08
well i still dont believe
and theres no way are young men of any country with average of 1.90 or 1.86
currently there is no country with men over 6 feet in average genetic has its limits and i dont believe that from spain ive read about a spaniard guy supposedly 1.81m that felt somewhat short in madrid
enrique was here in mexico a few days and even in pictures that are not good to make a good accurate he looks solid 5.11 6 ft tops he wore big lifts that i think give him 2.5in those were huge anyway he is tall
Shikoku said on 10/Apr/08
I think enrique is 6'1 he was on a dutch talkshow a while ago and the host is 6'3 they did an act when they both had to wear traditional dutch clomps and he looked a good 4-5 centimeters shorter

@ Heightjudge: only the young spanish men aerage on 178 (18-20 years old) that is the tallest generation till now. Young japanese guys that age average on 171 centimeters however the dutch in that generation average on 186.2 centimeters up to 190 centimeters in the tallest part groningen and frysland, half of the young european geerations per country average on or almost on 180 even the usa is coming close with 179 these days

I guess we are all jerks then :)

crappy.. Enrique Iglesias is 188cm(6ft2) a strong one.. Only foolish jerk think his smaller than 187 at less..
Spaniard said on 8/Apr/08
Heightjudge, the average height in Spain for men is about 173 cm (5'8). But I can tell you that there is a lot of difference between older and younger generations. The average for people under 35 is probably on the 176-178 range (between 5'9 and 5'10) but for people over 50 is far below that, perhaps below 5'7. For instance, my father is 173cm (decent height for his generation, anyway)and his sons are 187cm, 183cm and 179cm, respectively.
