Not sure it's time yet, Miko.

Looks to have held up pretty well.

I think a 5'10.5 current listing might be on the money.
Jtm said on 30/Mar/23
5'10 peak and maybe little less now. never strike me as a legit 5'11 guy.
lemon said on 28/Mar/23
Rob, Hugh Grant has lost some height. Just look at him compared to Justice Smith, Rege-Jean Page, and Chris Pine. Seems like an inch loss, no?

Editor Rob
He is looking sub 5ft 11 now.
James.B 172cm said on 20/Mar/23
Rob I think 5’11 1/4 is very possible for him at his peak.

That said maybe it’s hairstyle giving an illusion?
Editor Rob
Not hard to imagine solid 5ft 11 for a 90's Hugh.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/23
Slim, not enough to warrant a peak/current. One of the few that really doesn’t appear different to 20-25 years ago.

Firth struggled to look over 6ft1 next to him in the BJ Diary movies
Slim1.75m said on 9/Dec/22
Rob has Grant lost height by now.
Editor Rob
Like a lot of actors entering early 60's, he may well have lost a fraction.

Stands with a real relaxed posture and doesn’t look like he’s bothered by his height one bit
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/Mar/22
5ft11 isn’t really a far cry from 6ft1 Colin Firth, and I have never seen Hugh even remotely plump, so he can give off a taller impression, Jawilder, of that I’m in full agreement.

Jawilder said on 26/Mar/22
Always thought this guy was taller. Guess he really is a legit 5’11
Ian Omom said on 24/Mar/22
@Visitor i would love to see the photo of him with Jeff
Ian Omom said on 24/Mar/22
@Gyro seems like Grant wasn't the only one with Cavill

here's a strong 5'11 Ezra Miller in a simillar shot with Grant:

Henry is in footwear advantage with Grant there, he can even look a wee bit more than 6'1 imo, the tallest guy is Armie Hammer and he's like over 6'4, 6'4,5 isn't he? Henry look no more than 3 inch shorter, sometimes only 2-2,5 inch shorter, Grant helds up really well there with Armie while slouching, but Cavill has the thicker shoes and he stand up as straight as an arrow, squeezing every mm of his body, i think Grant is weak 5'11 with a loose loose posture
Benjamin Davis said on 23/Mar/22
Capaldi looked a inch taller in Lair of the White Worm so 182.5cm peak for Capaldi and 181cm now. Grant 180cm peak and 179cm now
Dmeyer said on 12/Feb/22
Defenerly Lost 1cm today he Can look 178-9cm at Peak i met him he wasnt over 180-180,5 , near 178.5-179 Kidman today has a hard Time looking as tall
Elurian said on 5/Nov/21
Looked 179-180 in Notting Hill with Julian Rhind-Thutt
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Aug/21
A benchmark 5ft11 guy...
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Apr/21
That was a rather dramatic opening! ('Extreme Measures') Two terrified men are escaping from a hospital and it would seem that they've been kept there for the purpose of experimenting on. I noticed that one was completely naked with just a transparent gown on and he runs in the middle of the road in a bid for freedom. I sense that Hugh is playing a decent sort and Gene Hackman a cold and calculating animalistic doctor.

This should be interesting....

5ft11. 😉👌
Visitor said on 12/Mar/21
I don't know what it is, can't put my finger on it but for some reason he just looks slightly shorter. Or maybe it's his proportions, or maybe he's JUST barely 180 cm, I don't know. I recently saw '9 months' and Julianne Moore isn't exactly tall herself, I would've expected a MUCH bigger separation between them if Grant is indeed 180 cm.

...and Jeff Goldblum looked like a full head taller than him (instead of around 5" like we'd suppose). Can't make sense of it.

The only honest 5’11” around here ✅
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/20
He still looks around this on The Undoing
Frank Col said on 19/Sep/20
Hugh Grant is 5ft 10. Always has been. Never trust an actor when he tells you his height. Probably a little less nowadays.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Sep/20
🎂🎁 Happy 6️⃣0️⃣th Birthday Hugh! 🎁🎂

A Very Happy Birthday to Hugh Grant, who celebrated his ✳️SIXTIETH✳️ Birthday on the 9th September. Let's hope he had a great day. XXX

5ft11 😁👏🎈

Toby Frank said on 22/Dec/19
Wow I never realized that I was 5ft 11. I mean I have met Hugh Grant and he was about the same height as me, maybe half an inch taller though not sure of his footwear, and I always thought I was 5ft 9..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Nov/19
Personally Rob, I think he looks pretty close to it in Maurice in those scenes with Grant. Certainly more than 2in there anyway. Maybe 6ft1¾ is a compromise?

I didn’t realise Graves was at a strong 5ft10 here, given his exotic 5ft10⅞ claim! But 6ft1½ I’m cool with aswell for James. I’m not sure he’s just 6ft1 flat though. Remember, there are 6ft2+ guys on here who give 6ft1 aswell.
Dr JJ said on 13/Oct/19
I think he is similar to Bardem and Jamie Oliver, the beneficiary of a large head. Their bodies deceive and make you think they might be smaller, but they get a good boost from the head. He seems around the 5’ 11” mark.
Gyro said on 12/Sep/19
Wow I'm shocked that everyone here seems so sure about Hugh being the full 5'11, even these days in his current age.

Has anybody seen these photos of Hugh with Henry Cavill (6'0) and Armie Hammer (6'4)? Cavill alone is making Hugh look 5'10 flat -

It's not just his bad posture either. He legitimately looks like he could fall below 5'10 next to them. It doesn't make sense.

🎁🎈🎂 Happy Birthday Hugh! 🎂🎈🎁

Wishing Hugh a very happy birthday!


Mightyman said on 9/Sep/19
Watch the Jimmy Fallon show clip, if Jimmy is 5'11 stood next to Hugh, then Hugh is no more than 5'7 to 5'8 max.
Michael 5'10", 178 cm said on 17/Dec/18
I just finished watching Love Actually tonight and I'm going to leave a comment on each page of the cast members on what I think on their heights. All I have to say is, either Hugh needs an upgrade or Billy Bob Thornton needs a downgrade because in a scene with them, Hugh Grant is 5'11" and looked more than an inch taller than Billy in the movie. I think Billy is 5'9.5" at the most if Hugh Grant is 5'11". Otherwise, he looked to be his listed and claimed height next to everyone else in that film. Hugh Grant is 5'11" minimum.

For me, Grant always looked more like a 181 cm guy, but today he is 58 and maybe he has already lost some height. Rob, does Grant have a chance to peak height 5'11.25"?
Sandy Cowell said on 25/Sep/18
Haven't I written a comment on Mr Grant yet? Well, shame on me for that!

Although we normally associate this guy with comedy films, I think it's worth mentioning that he also starred in a Ken Russell movie about snakes. I'll get back as to its title!. 😉

This fella gets 5ft11 from this female personage!

I don't think I will have to pop back! I think it's called 'The Lair of the White Worm'.
CDS said on 1/Aug/18
He always rubbed me as more the classic 5'10" guy, 5'11" in shoes, hence claims 5'11". Can easily hit the 6' mark with the hair, as he states on this page.
Rourke said on 23/Jul/18
He may have lost height due to age fair enough, but he’s looked a very weak 5’11” at his absolute peak anyway.
Gracian said on 18/Apr/18
Rob, I'm addressing you directly now. Please give Grant peak height 5'11.25" and current height 5'10.75". Today, when he is 57-58 age, I seem to he have lost a little height. In the past, Grant really looked over 5'11" next to Julia Roberts, Colin Firth and Renee Zellweger: Click Here

Animus said on 23/Mar/18
Hugh Grant looks like a guy who has lost a fraction. In his prime nothing short of 5'11, but next to Fallon he looks 179-179½cm.
Sophia Linder said on 15/Feb/18
I stood next to him at a party in Sweden and he is no way above 1.80. When he walked past me I got the impression that he was just about the same height as me or tad a bit shorter. I’m 1.77 so my guess would be he’s somewhere between 176-177.
Mackie Messer said on 10/Jan/18
Go to YouTube and look for Hugh Grant and Jimmy Chug a "Shoey". It's Grant on Jimmy Fallon's show just recently. At the end, they are standing together in stocking feet and Fallon towers over Grant. If Fallon is 5'11.5" as this site claims, there's no way Grant is 5'11".
Realist said on 2/Jan/18
Peak height 5'11 (180 exact)
Today b/w 5'10.25 to 5'10.5 or 178.8 cm
He seems a little shorter in Florence Foster Jenkins compared to the olden days.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Dec/17
I think Grant in his prime would have surely edged out Pitt, Mortensen and Nesbitt...Fiennes though I think could also appear a strong 5ft11 guy in the past.
Adijos said on 16/Dec/17
Truly speaking, Rob, I think Hugh Grant, Brad Pitt, Ralph Fiennes, Viggo Mortensen and James Nessbit are the guys whose height can be described the same! In my opinion, each of them peak the height of 5'11.25". Today, each of them looks at 5'10.75". I think it would be worth updating at least one of them giving such a peak height and such a actual height. Please Rob, answer me.
Editor Rob
of course I understand some estimates for these men as being 1/4 inch over 5ft 11.

I remember though seeing a show with Peter Capaldi and james nesbitt and thinking that Peter looked taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Nov/17
Out of bed: 182.4cm
Before bed: 180.5cm
Scoobydoo said on 2/Nov/17
I think this guy is honest. Could be 181 /182 cm in the morning and a strong 180 cm evening.
berta said on 31/Oct/17
he looks nothing under 180 cm. he is probably 180,5 guy close to 181
Slim 6' said on 13/Oct/17
Thanks @honest.

I'd like Hugh Grant to get Gyllenhaal'd one day, cause he's actually 5'11" and he claims it!!
HonestSlovene said on 11/Oct/17
@Slim 6' I'd say correct, looks the same height as my dad.
Slim 6' said on 8/Oct/17
182.5(5'11 and seven eighths) after a 12 hour sleep.

Then 181(5'11.25") before bed.

What do you guys think?
Slim 6' said on 6/Oct/17
Needs a 5'11.25" upgrade, he's in the same neighbourhood as Cj de moi and Leo DiCaprio.

within C-D, I think he was just a good example of an honest enough 5ft 11 guy.

Looked 5'10.5" next to 6'4.5"-ish Charles Barkley.
Slim 182 cm said on 27/Jul/17
Ok he's 5'11, final guess.
Animus said on 18/Jul/17
This is what a solid 5'11" man looks like. There is nothing 5'10" about him like unlike McCoughaney and Clooney.

He could be a guy that's slightly closer to 181cm than 180cm, but he's fundamentally a good example of a 5'11" guy.
Slim 182 cm said on 17/Jul/17
179, definitely not 180.
6'1.5 said on 20/Jun/17
Wait, this is a legit 5'11" guy claiming 5'11"?
RisingForce said on 23/May/17
I was thinking we might have found an exception to Burt Reynolds rule about 5'11" actors, but Hugh was actually looking maybe a fraction under with Jimmy Fallon and then looked like a child with Charles Barkley. Hmm, maybe he lost that fraction due to age? Not impossible since he was 54 at the time.
shiva 181 cms said on 23/May/17
An honest 5'11er many guys at his height claim 6'1 let alone 6' which he doesn't admit he really is

In this pic with Brad Garrett he looks taller than 5'11.

I think he is really 181-182 cm., kinda tallish, not tall. Maybe a little too honest about his height, I agree.

In "Florence Foster Jenkins" Hugh Grants character is described as a TALL Gentleman. He actually looks tallish in his movies I think.

About 0,5in smaller than me in person 10 years back so 5 ft 11 , gyllenhaal was taller in person

I think he's around 180/181cm even now.
Can look 5ft11½(182cm) at times even

No way is he under this listing. He could even pass for 181-182cm range.
S.J.H said on 1/Oct/15
He look 5'9.5 in PR Photo. But i believe his about 5'11 in real
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jun/15
He's probably lost barely anything though
James B said on 1/May/15
For once I agree with rampage 181cm peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Apr/15
A peak of 5ft11¼(181cm) is possible. No more than 2in shorter than Colin Firth in BJD. Today he can look a little under this at times though.
James B said on 2/Apr/15
Rob my brother who is a fraction over 5'11 walked passed Hugh Grant in west london . I asked him about how tall he looked and he said "yeah hughs a big lad".

He described Hugh as looking like an old man as well lol
Editor Rob
maybe he was expecting a short guy? Hugh is 50's now...
Dmeyer said on 11/Nov/14
I met both Grant and hanks there is Max 1in between Them and now nearer 1.5-2cm 10 yrs back hugh about 5'11 and hanks about 6'0
TJE said on 8/Nov/14
My family's watching 12 weeks notice right now. Looked 5'10.5-5'11 with Sandra Bullock.

5'11 is a good possibility as he can look tallish pretty often and upper average at worst.
Judd said on 13/Oct/14
Today Tom Hanks doesn't seems taller than 5'11.5"...i don't think he's a strong 6'0" with hugh:

Click Here

if hanks is 5'11.5" today, then from this picture, hugh grant can't be taller than 5'9.5"...i see 2" between they...but i'm confsed because since now i ever thought hugh was a legit 5'10.75-11" (180) one.
Judd said on 12/Oct/14
In the most of his movies he looks 5'11" to me, but sometimes he can appear a little in notting hill, he had no 4" ok Julia Roberts, which I guess is not taller than 5'7", and in a recent picture with Tom Hanks, he looked 1,75-2" shorter...
I'm a bit confused regarding hugh grant.
James B said on 21/Aug/14
Could pass for 5'11.5
Realist said on 10/May/14
He is a clear 5'10 178 nothing to argue about.
James B said on 4/Apr/14
Looks 181cm but his hairstyle makes him seem taller
Arch Stanton said on 3/Apr/14
Looks more 5'10 in Sense and Sensibility.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Feb/14
He looked about 2-2.5 inches shorter than Rhys Ifans barefoot in Notting Hill and about 3 inches taller than Julia, at times could look near 4 inches. "Grant"ed he does have a frame which screams 5'10" but I think this is legit.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/14
No way is he under 5'11. He looks near 4 inches taller than Julia Roberts and looks easily 6 ft in shoes next to Rhy Ifans in Notting Hill.
James said on 6/Jan/14
Rob there was a pic of Hugh with vinnie jones from 1999 where he looked under 5'11 if jones is just 6'1 flat. You do have to wonder how much height advantage his thick hair gives him as well.

Maybe rob or someone else could dig out the picture?
Editor Rob
can't remember if I've seen the picture.
Realist said on 24/Dec/13
Not much taller than Anthony Hopkins in Remains of The Day. At most 4 cm on him. Thus 5'9.5-5'10.

Doesn't drop below 180cm at night. Perfect example of what 5ft11 should look like.
Hew said on 4/Jan/13
5'11 is absolutely spot on I think. I stood next to him in line at a Subway in Liverpool a couple of days ago, I'm just shy of 6ft at 5'11.87 and had maybe a slight footwear-advantage on him, he was'nt that much shorter than me really, probably a good inch. His posture wasn't the best either, so it was a bit hard to tell exactly, but 5'11 I can vouch for.
Original said on 24/Dec/12
5'11" is correct.

I'll have to reestimate - he's definitively 175-176 cm range, strong 5'9. Not under that though.
Michael said on 8/Mar/11
Jeff Goldblum is 6ft 4. In 9 months Hugh Grant comes a couple of inches over his shoulder. With the best will in the world he is 5ft 9 at best. For goodness sake - he can get straight out of a Porsche!
James said on 17/Feb/11
Yeah 181cm could be on the money.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/11
5"11.25(181cm) is closer...
fuzzblaster said on 6/Jan/11
He's 5'11" but has mastered looking 6'.
Edward said on 18/Dec/10
I saw Hugh Grant in 1998 in South Kensington, London (where his Simian Films office was). He walked past me in the spring sunshine with his overcoat slung over his shoulder, alone and unhurried. I was genuinely struck at how short he seemed. In bare feet, I am a shade under 5' 11" (ie, exactly 180cm). I don't wear tall heels, but that day Hugh Grant was significantly shorter than I am. Perhaps he was just slouching, or had particularly thin-soled shoes - I don't know. I would put him a good inch or two shorter than I am.

I also remember another time, about 2-3 years later, when I saw him on The Letterman Show, and Letterman asked him how tall he was. There was a slight pause, as Hugh shuffled in his seat, and I could see in his eyes that his mind was racing, and he was thinking, "Do I tell the truth here, or do I come up with some piece of BS?" I can't remember for sure what he actually answered, but I think he said, "6 foot". The point is, whatever his answer was, I clearly remember thinking, "No way, you lying hound!" (I have tried to find this clip on YouTube since, but I haven't been able to.)
Bon said on 17/Dec/10
There could be a possibility he's closer to 5'10 though, he's a long-legged, slender guy(at least when he's fit). Here's how he really looked to me in several of his films:

Nine months - 5'10.25
Extreme measures - anywhere from 5'10 to strong 5'11
Four weddings - 5'10 - 5'10.5
About a boy - solid 5'11
Notting hill - 5'10.5
Maurice - weakish 5'10...maybe because he was really young looking there
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Dec/10
Rob could 181-182cm be closer?

Editor Rob
I think he's an honest 5ft 11, of course there's a chance he could be a fraction over

May fall to like 179.5 cm at night but nothing less. He's a genuine tall-ish guy.
Also doesn't seem like a guy who would lie about height, he's really intelligent, down to earth and cool, great actor and person ;)
Rampage(\-_-_-/)Clover said on 27/Oct/10
He's a genuine 5"11 guy....Don't rule out 181cm

Hugh Grant also played in "The Englishman who Went Up a Hill and Came Down a Mountain." I love the entire cast in this film. He did a great job in it. Also, he played in "Howard's Inn." You should post of photo of him posing with Glenn the first chance you get.
Valerie said on 12/Apr/09
It astonished me that Hugh is 5'11! I remember clearly that he looked small in the movie Maurice. I wondered Hugh just has 175cm...well, maybe it because James Wilby is too tall and Hugh looks slim.
Smith said on 21/Mar/09
Yes, i think he needs an upgrade. A friend of mine met him once and he took several pictures with him. Considering my friend's height, i can tell for sure (or almost) that this guy looks 184cm in shoes (so maybe 182cm barefoot).
bam said on 15/Mar/09
5'11.5 for sure, I would consider an upgrade.
Madux said on 23/Feb/09
Like 180~181
\-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 20/Feb/09
A bit more than 5ft11. Not quite 6ft though.
Lenad said on 11/Dec/08
Looks like a solid 5'11 to me
Cathy said on 22/Oct/08
I'm 5 foot tall. But I am standing on really high grounds compared to him. I would definitely say 5ft 11 is right.
Cathy said on 20/Oct/08
Yeah. How will I show you it? :S

Editor Rob
I will upload it to this page for you, what is your own height?
raison said on 16/Oct/08
he's about 5-11.5 no doubt
Cathy said on 13/Oct/08
I spoke to him at the golf very recently.
He is actually tall, I got a picture with him and I am standing on high grounds and I am only up to the bottom of his nose but I am on really high grounds compared to him.
I couldn't believe I got a picture with him though
ssambae said on 19/Sep/08
Nope. because hugh grant taller than billy bob thornton, i'm 100%sure hugh grant at least 5-11
Hugh said on 16/Sep/08
I wouldn't go higher than 5ft11. Infact there are some scenes in Bridget Jones where he looks more 178-179cm.
moose said on 10/Sep/08
agreed , a good representative as a 180cm-182cm
moose said on 7/Sep/08
why he didn't look 180cm he's very strong 180cm
Colin Firth said on 5/Sep/08
Hugh was about a couple of inches taller than Julia Roberts in Notting Hill, and Julia is 5ft 9 inches. So Hugh must be 5ft 11inches.
howie day said on 1/Sep/08
how weird..he looked 5'10 when I saw him last year..could be posture..but I swear he didnt look 5'11
Ian said on 26/Aug/08
Well I was thinking 5ft 11 and I thought I check here and that is what you have. I must be good judge of height. Though you have 5ft 11 you also have (180cm) which technically is 5ft 10.8661417
yoney said on 11/Aug/08
5 ft 11 makes real sense.
This plus said on 25/Jun/08
Sometimes he looked taller than 5'11", when he was 22years old he's 180cm but at 25 he was 182 i think
Mabe real height is about 182cm
This plus said on 20/Jun/08
I'm a grant's big fan . and always shows 5-11 height in his prime
dmeyer said on 14/May/08

Anonymous said on 27/Mar/08
is saw a few minutes ago the picture and the dates which was taken from him at the police station, when he has the thing with the black hooker a few years ago. hhis height was stated there as 5
Gago said on 6/Mar/08
I strongly believe he is 181, i met him few times, even in slippers, what d'u think Rob, is 181 possible?

Editor Rob
sure, there's as many strong 5ft 11 guys as normal ones, he could fit that mould and not bother about 1/4 or 1/3 of an inch.
Adam Brennon said on 29/Feb/08
Always struck me as an archetypal legit 5' 11".
God is dead said on 23/Jan/08
he's about 5"11 in bridget jones diary he is about 3inch shorter than colin firth who is 187cm, so he is about 180 or 179
Anonymous said on 17/Jan/08
He's almost same as billy bob thornton in love actually if billy is really 6"0 he is mabe 5"11 or 6"0 but 5"11 is sound realistic
This said on 16/Jan/08
To me this guy is very solid 5"11' mabe minimum is 5"10.5 not 5"9
Anonymous said on 10/Jan/08
In the barefoot scene, in Notting Hill, He does look quite short, when he is facing Julie Roberts. To me he is no more than 5ft 9in barefoot.

In America, when he was caught with the hooker, his police rap sheet shows his height as 5-11, that is his height in his shoes. I do think he does wear lifts, when at showbiz events.
visiter said on 5/Jan/08
he is very strong 5"11' in his prime
peli said on 20/Nov/07
glenn when u meet all these celebs why don't u just get a measuring tape and get their height once and for all, putting an end to speculations
jimbo said on 28/Sep/07
Stood beside him in a bar in London. I am 5.9 maybe 5.9.5 and he is about the same height. My friend who is 1.79 (5.10.5) walked past him on the way to the loo and was a tiny bit taller. I reckon he is 5.10 and no more.
Anonymous said on 11/Sep/07
He seems like 5ft11 not 6ft0
dmeyer said on 25/Jul/07

radio_man said on 5/Apr/07

For reference, with Zellweger who's given 5'4", here, and 6'1.5" Colin Firth:

DerekB said on 26/Feb/07
I would again like to apoligize to you dmeyer in person. How tall are you by the way, now that you mentioned your height?

Editor Rob
Mac, I used to run some other forums in the past, the ratio of quality contributers to absolute numpties was weighted high in the numpty favour. Whilst it isn't as bad on celebheights, you fall firmly into the category of numpty, as evidenced here: Link, by virtue of your 100th pathetic attempt to imitate someone else.
glenn said on 25/Feb/07
nothing wrong with speaking up derek.dmeyer takes constructive criticism well.and we all learn from each other.this site made me learn things i never knew either.
Dom said on 25/Feb/07
He didnt look 5'11 in bridget jones... as rendez zellweger is only 5'3/4 i would say 5'10 tops, perhaps 5'9 for hugh grant
dmeyer said on 25/Feb/07
rob thank you for for saying wath you said i respect you a lot and all the celebritys i met were the same height as you describe then within 0.25 in also you made me realise i wasnt 182 like i thaught i was so now i am able to judge celebs in a more acurrate way
dmeyer said on 25/Feb/07
i am french my english writing is not perfect but i lived here for almost 3 years and i got back to the movie sets so i will try to coment only new coments dont worry i am not mad at anybody
dmeyer said on 25/Feb/07
sorry guys i will try to not repeat myself anymore
Derek said on 25/Feb/07
I apoligize Rob. I meant no harm to dmeyer. He is a cool guy, and he has changed quite a few of my opinions in fact. Send my regards to dmeyer.

Editor Rob
please stick with say DerekB or DerekX or something as a few derek's have posted
glenn said on 25/Feb/07
dmeyer is a cool guy but he does seem to ramble a bit.perhaps its the language barrier.not his fault.
Derek said on 24/Feb/07
I do respect you a lot dmeyer, but you do have to stop endlessly repeating yourself. For instance, in the tom hanks article, you had to have said the same thing at least 7 times. Sorry man, but it gets real annoying.

Editor Rob
dmeyer is harmless, he may repeat stuff but I'm sure his intention is fair and he has met celebs...and his estimates from his 181cm vantage seem pretty decent.

like glenn and others, dmeyer has on some occasions prompted me to have another look at a listing...

you just used 3 different names, now THAT is real annoying, more than a bit of rambling ;)

don't give other Derek's bad names!
MD said on 21/Feb/07
Yes, you've already said that. I notice you do this alot, dmeyer. You don't need to repeat yourself, especially if you're claim in unchallenged.
dmeyer said on 20/Feb/07
i worked with him he is one of the honest 5'11
dmeyer said on 13/Feb/07
i worked with him during 2 days he didnt seem taller than me we were pretty mush the same height so 5'11 no less no more
Glenn said on 13/Feb/07
Saw him last night for the first time in 10 years.he did look more 6ft.
bam said on 12/Feb/07
he really is just about 6'. He just doesnt have a monster ego like some of the A list actors. I would upgrade him to 182cm judging by his waxwork
dmeyer said on 8/Feb/07
i met hugh he is 5'11 within 0.25 in
MD said on 8/Feb/07
Saw him on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno (Feb. 7/8, 2007) and looked exactly 5'11" (Jay's height), and had better posture than Jay so he appeared slightly taller.
dmeyer said on 1/Nov/06
when i met him he looked closer to my height than eckhart grant is a stonger 5'11 than aron
Juraj said on 26/Oct/06
Beside Billy Bob Thornton in "Love Actually," Hugh Grant looks taller, at least by an inch. If Thornton is 5"11, he should be 6'
Griff Jones said on 4/Sep/06
I have a photo of me standing next to his waxwork. His waxwork is 2inches taller than me at least. I am 5ft 9inches.
Glenn said on 1/Aug/06
He is 5-11.5-10.5 minimum.
Karen said on 31/Jul/06
He doesn't look 5'11 in that photo. Is Bullock in heels there? Maybe he's 5 9 1/2 But with shoes, 5'11 seems about right.
Height Detective said on 22/Apr/06
Check this photo he is without shoes with Sandra Bullock

Mr. R said on 15/Feb/06
On David Lettermen a few years ago, he stated that he was 5-11. There are a few sources have him at 5-11.5
TNTinCA said on 15/Feb/06
He was shorter than Sam Neil in Sirens. Maybe by about an inch. That would make 5'11" pretty much feasible. (Although I honestly pegged him as shorter)
brazilian guy said on 14/Feb/06
looks 6'feet for me
i´ve seen him listed 187 once
looks really tall 6' is my guess
dmeyer said on 12/Feb/06
i worked 2 full day's with him and looked 180 181 range of course no less than 5'11
Anonymous said on 28/Jul/05
i worked today with him and he is a very strong 5'11'' pushing 5'11.5''
Bill said on 21/Apr/05
On the police report after the, ahem, Devine Brown incident, and seen on countless TV documentaries quite Clearly Shows 5-11 as the height.
Ricardo said on 19/Feb/05
Hugh Grant is about 5'9"
jimbo said on 16/Feb/05
If hugh grant is only 5'11 then liz hurly his ex must be only 5'5 because even when hurley was in heels grant still stood 3 or 4 inches taller than her .
