How tall is Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman's Height

6ft 1 ½ (186.7 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 2 (188 cm)
Australian actor best known for his role as The Wolverine in the X-Men series of movies. Other notable films include The Prestige, The Greatest Showman, Les Miserables, Australia, Prisoners and Swordfish.
The problem is my Height. I'm 6ft 2in and lean, but in the books [Wolverine is] 5ft 3in and stocky...James Marsden, who played Cyclops, who is only 10cm shorter than me, was put on boxes and platforms in our scenes together. You'll notice that every character in X-Men looked taller than me.

How tall is Hugh Jackman
Nicole Kidman & Hugh / Photos by PRPhotos
Before I had any kind of acting profile I was encouraged to lie about my height. I was told to say I was about six foot [1.83m] tall. I was worried about it when I first had my audition because pleasing fans of the franchise is important.. My height was brought up on the Internet. They didn't think it was right. A lot of people who never met me think I'm very short.
If someone's going to spend their time saying, 'You're really not 6' 2"; you're 5' 10",' I'll tell them once, 'I am 6' 2".' Then, whatever you want to believe, it's up to you. Am I going to waste energy going, 'I'm so mad that this person says I'm 5'10"? We really only get mad when there's an element of truth, right?

He was never taller than 6-1.5 imo

Really can't see any less than 6'1 1/2 even today. In recent photos of him with Ryan Reynolds he can actually still pull off looking 6'2. He can definitely look shorter at times with bad posture but other times absolutely nothing under 186.5.
Slim1.75m said on 23/Nov/23
@Rob has Jackman shrunk anymore he's had 6'1½ for some years now.
Editor Rob
Some people lose a fraction and stabilise. I feel Jackman is in that group. He still seems near 6ft 1.5 if standing tall.
Lenad 5ft9.75ins said on 27/Sep/23
186.7cm today. 187.8cm at peak. Something like that.
Lenad 5ft9.75ins said on 19/Sep/23
If anything James B, 6'1 1/2 could be bang on for hugh today. I can buy a full 6'2 for when younger, but probably not more than that.
Ares said on 11/Sep/23
I always thought he was 1.90 m when I was little kid. After seen multiple sources saying he's 1.88 m i wasn't so much of surprised. Definitely 6-7 cm taller than Jake on Prisoners if not more.
James B 172cm said on 5/Sep/23
Yeah could be creeping under 6’1 1/2 today
Lenad 5ft9.75ins said on 2/Sep/23
Today a strong 186cm or weak 187cm very believable. I wouldn't go lower than the estimated 186.5cm here though.
Canson said on 2/Jun/23
@Rampage: something like 186 today is feasible. Maybe peak height 187-188
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/May/23
6ft1 flat is ridiculous....
Lenad 5ft9.75ins said on 29/May/23
He's not as low as 6'1 (185cm).

Tall guy alright, rob in the 1950s what do u think was the average height of an Australian man ages 18-30?
6'3.75" said on 30/Apr/23
He could pass 5'11" though that's it.
Lenad 5ft9.75ins said on 29/Apr/23
pov I think floating between 187 and 188cm is spot on for younger Jackman. A full 188cm I can definitley buy, not the 189cm he's been listed at though. His lean and muscular physique can give that impression though.
Lenad 5ft9.75ins said on 27/Apr/23
Slim 1.75m I know where you're coming from, he can pull off 189cm (I don't think he's quite that high but) not 190cm, thats a push.
besolo said on 25/Apr/23
My guess
Current-Solid 6'1
Lenad 5ft9.75ins said on 24/Apr/23
He's not as low as 6'1. He'd be at least a fraction over that mark.
Slim1.75m said on 18/Apr/23
Really thought he looked 1.89 in Logan
5'10.25" said on 9/Apr/23
How can he loose so much height at barely over 50? My dad is 65 and lost maybe half an inch at most, still is comfortably a few mm over 180 cm. 188 cm peak maybe now 187 cm.
Alex 6'0 said on 4/Apr/23
Looked 6'1 with 5'11.5 Famke Jansen
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 22/Mar/23
Ares 02 if anything, a weak 187cm.could be bang on for hugh jackman's height today. I think more 188 when younger but more likely a weak 6'2 than strong one.
Ares_02 said on 20/Mar/23
I believe Hugh might have being 6'3'' or 1.90 m in his prime. I mean his description fits that he at his 30s was 30 cm taller than Wolverine who is 1.60 m. Maybe now Hugh is like 1.87 m but he always looked a lot taller than legit 6 foot actors.
Lenad 5ft9.75ins said on 12/Mar/23
I think 187-188cm peak and more 186-187cm range now. 185cm is too low but.
QM6'1.5"QM said on 1/Mar/23
6'1.5" peak max and about 6'1" today.
He did a funny Lipton commercial! :)
185 Tim.Will_son_T said on 1/Mar/23
I'm sure he had 188.2 cm straight at his peak
In these days, however, he looks about 186 cm with Ryan Reynolds.
So Hugh is solid 6'1.25 guy in these days

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jan/23
Looked 189cm in the first X-Men and Swordfish.

Isn't this the umpteenth time you've said this? No offence.
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 24/Jan/23
Berta if anything 6'1.75 could be bang on for hughs peak height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jan/23

berta said on 23/Jan/23
not a milimeter over 6´2 peak. i think he was 6´2 on good days but maybe closer to 6´1 3/4 most days. He may have lost height now because dont look more than 186-187 beside ryan reynold (188,5). Its strange that he lost muscles because he dont lift that heavy weights but if you look closely on his build then you see he is small boned, Not genetically gifted to build muscles. The height loss could also be from steroids if he looked in reality like in the movies. But i dont think he looked close to that in reality. In his gym videos he posted during the same time as the later wolverine movies he looked ripped with lots of veines but not mutch muscles. SO its not imposible that he didnt take anything to build muscles if he looked like that in reality. But if he looked like he did in the movies, then ofcourse he took alot of stuff and that could be the reason for around 1,5 cm height loss. I think he benched about 120 kg at his strongest. No one need steroids to do that, but to get his bodyfat down that low at his age, well then you need to have blessed genetics and pretty mutch be a proffesional bodybuilder. I personally think getting bodyfat under 10 procent and still have most muscles left is mutch harder than just get strong and big. TO get big you just need to eat all the time and lift heavy heavt heavy. What do you guys think did he look like in the movies in real life and took alot of drugs or was it a bit of cgi like hemsworth in last thor movie?
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 17/Jan/23
Solid 188cm for hugh not improbable at peak. Solid 187cm seems more likely. But truely I do believe he was closer to 6'2 than guys like jim carrey and will smith who get claimed at 6'2 but were more in the 6'1 range.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 14/Jan/23
He appeared no taller than Obama.
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 10/Jan/23
He probably was/is a strong 187cm. Just look at him next to kidman when she's in those heels.
QM6'1.5"QM said on 28/Dec/22
viper said on 25/Dec/22

Yep, totally agreed.
Barely 6'1.5" at peak max. Right now he's about 6'1" and Ryan is 3/4" taller than him!

Really doubt he's taller than Cristiano Ronaldo any mm, no saying about 1cms.
Jawilder said on 27/Dec/22
I was 18 at the time so cant say for sure but he looked close enough to 6’1. He was signing autographs next to Drew Brees and looked a bit taller.
Jawilder said on 27/Dec/22
AP is 6’1 I seen him up close in person at training camp.

187/188cm guy at peak
Ravi kathiresan said on 22/Aug/22
Mr rob he look like a inch shorter than Ryan Reynolds and couple of inches than chris Hemsworth who are of 6'2" and 6'3" so i think he is 6'1" and now 6'0"
Most Legit 6'3 said on 13/Aug/22
When I met him a few years ago we were quite close in height, but he was wearing some thicker shoes that gave him more height. He’s probably still a solid 6’1.5.
CDS said on 27/Jul/22
In the 2008 film, "Deception ", his character is described as 6'1"
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 14/Jul/22
If you watch that video at the tony awards from 2011 when he was a duet with neil patrick harris, the height difference of them varied as they were dancing, but when they stood next to each other there looked to be a good 2 inches between them. And he is definitley similar in height to ryan reynolds, but reynolds always seems to be marginally, 1/4-1/2 an inch taller than hugh. I suspect 187cm is bang on for hugh's height. I'm a weak 5'10 guy myself and if I ever get a photo with hugh, I'll post it and I bet my estimate is right.
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 11/Jul/22
He consistintley looks tall in movies, I don't think he'd ever be over 6'2 realistically, but not below the 6'1 range. Measured by a doctor when younger, he probably would've been 6 ft 1 and 3/4 of an inch. Might even have been a strong 6'2, but my genuine feeling is a weak 6'2 is more likely. 187cm or at least nipping it these days.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jul/22
Prime woke up at 6ft3
Space said on 7/Jun/22
I’m going to have to agree with viper on this one and say he was a strong 6-1.5” peak and solid 6-1 today.
Tech noir said on 19/May/22
6-2 peak. Now looks just over 6-1.25?
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/May/22
I saw Hugh in the movie Prisoners last night, and it was worthy of every one of its 4 stars. It was about child abduction and the outcome was really unexpected.

Hugh played the father of a missing little girl. I didn’t catch the beginning, but this film is definitely worth adding to my
collection to watch at my leisure, and see any bonus features.

Hugh looked very tall, so he can have 6ft2 for his peak and half-an-inch less for today.

Progking184 said on 11/Apr/22
6'1.5 sounds right, close to 6'3 in shoes. Still quite tall though looked kind of standout when younger. His 6'2 claim though is still honest and at worst just a roundup
viper said on 11/Apr/22
Doubt he's lost anything.

Always been 6-1.5
Jawilder said on 11/Apr/22
I think at worst he has lost 1/4 an inch , but I still don’t even know about that.
QM6'1.5"QM said on 5/Apr/22
6'1.5" peak.
6'1 today.
I talk about evening heights (8hrs after the bed).
IceCold said on 30/Mar/22
In the movie with Christian Bale, he surely looked easy 6'2. But peak probably more weak 6'2
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 24/Mar/22
I think a weak 6'2 is bang on for a younger hugh. I could see him even as a solid 188cm when younger, but more likely scraping the full 6'2, like 187.8cm or so.

Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 7/Feb/22
@Editor Rob Rob, in your opinion what year do you think Hugh Jackman start to look below 6'2? cause he became big star only in the last 2 decade, which is the time when he met and being photographed with other celebs
Editor Rob
When he got into mid to late 40's I thought he started to lose a small fraction
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 3/Feb/22
@Wehrmacht180 pls sir don't downgrade too many people here

@Rampage he maybe a weak 6'2 and now a little above 6'1 (186 area), i still trying to figure out why he's shrinking a good 1/2 inch on his 40's, like many people benched heavier and work harder than him, i can't see that as the main factor, but he did, he look noticably shorter in the last 10 year
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Feb/22
He’s naturally a very skinny guy by his own admission

Still think peak was nothing below 6ft2
RJ MacReady said on 26/Dec/21
I think Hugh Jackman weight max in his career is on 200 lbs, not more. is very defined, so it looks bigger
Wehrmacht180 said on 26/Nov/21
185 cm now and before.
Jawilder said on 12/Nov/21
Would get edged by Reynolds at his peak by a fraction.
berta said on 30/Oct/21
peak he could look 187-189. I think 188 i good peak but if i peronally would guess i think i would have guessed 187,5. Today beside a guy like john cena he didnt even look 1 inch taller. I starting to think he could be down to 186 efter a hard workout. And 196,5 on a better day. Almost 6´1 3/8
Shat said on 28/Oct/21
184.8 now
6'0 75
Crixus said on 21/Oct/21
Still looks pretty tall,he has a great frame. A weak 6'1 most likely. Nothing over 6'2 peak however.

Around 6'2" now, was maybe like 6'2.25" peak.

I think he was a very solid 187 or weak 188cm when younger. Nowadays, a weak 187.
Slim 6'1.75 said on 24/Sep/21
Bana would edge out peak Jackman
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/21
Solid 6ft2 peak, arguably could have cleared by like an eighth.

I don’t think just 187cm peak does him justice. Currently I think he’s that though

Hyper said on 9/May/21

I wouldn’t say 6’1.75”. At times, Hugh (without lifts) did look a bit taller than Ryan Reynolds (who I also think could be 6’2 1/8”).

I think 6’2 1/8” are arguable figures for both men, but I wouldn’t put them at 6’2.5”.
viper said on 8/May/21
Don't see any evidence of height loss.

Waaaaay too young for that
Slim 6'1.5 said on 8/May/21
6’1.75 is likelier than 6’2.25 imho
Hyper said on 6/May/21
I have a different opinion, I think Hugh could’ve been 6’2 1/8”.

However, I don’t know about 6’2.75” because Brandon Routh is clearly taller than Jackman.
Yharnamman said on 3/May/21
You guys shouldn't worry about working out will make you lose height. Rob said earlier that Hugh is a unique situation, he was really beating himself up to get in shape for roles.

Theres tons of people around Hugh's age that have lifted a lot more than Hugh and haven't had height loss. People always bring up Jay Culter and how he still looks like hes in pristine condition, hes done tons of exercises with 600-700 lbs.
Slim 6'1.5 said on 2/May/21
It won’t be too long till he shrinks to the flat 6’1
Eusebiu - 6'1" (185 cm) said on 29/Apr/21
In his younger years he was definitely a legit 6'2" (188 cm) and eye-to-eye level with Ryan Reynolds (listed 188 cm).

Also, it is very rare to start losing height in your 40s but I guess this is the result of training based on weight lifting.

Peak - 188 cm
Current - 187 cm

Sulu2021 said on 9/Mar/21
Could certain older people in their mid to late 50s still be at their peak height today while Hugh is now a cm below his peak?
Editor Rob
a good proportion can still make it through to mid 50's without any noticeable loss.
Allie said on 5/Mar/21
Seen a few articles describe him as being 1.9 m/6'3. But that's obviously too much.

This listing seems spot on imo.
Hunter Kendall said on 3/Mar/21
Saw him in Wolverine X-Men Origins with Ryan Reynolds and Liev Schreiber and thought man this dude is tall

Rob, how would you say Hugh Jackman holds up next to Chris Hemsworth in this video? It's from 2015. Hemsworth is wearing flats while Jackman's in dress shoes -

There's a quick shot of them at the end (without the wigs) and Hemsworth seems to edge him.
Editor Rob
looks under 6ft 2 I'd say, with Chris having what looked a thinnish sneaker.
Genau 5ft9 7/8 said on 11/Feb/21
I think a lot of people underestimate hughs peak he often slouched a bit, so from me he gets the full 188 Peak and 186.5 current

i really think he never was taller than at best 187,5. probably 187 flat and today 186,5-187

Peak Jackman would not edge out Andy Murray
Rapha said on 3/Feb/21
Hi Rob

It seems that he started early to loose height. Do you know the reason for that ?
Editor Rob
I believe through into mid 40's range his years of heavy lifting might have compressed him a cm or so.
slim 6'1 said on 31/Jan/21
Berta 187 is an excellent guess for his peak.
I reckon he’s just 186 maybe a few more years to dip to the flat 6’1”
slim 6'1 said on 31/Jan/21
No berta due to his weightlifting his discs in his back degenerated and he shrunk a little bit. The sort of weightlifting Hugh Jackman has done isn’t healthy for height health
Genau said on 30/Jan/21
187.5-188 peak current 186.5-187

6’2” is the absolute most I would guess for his peak. Current is 186ish.
Yharnamman said on 21/Jan/21
If anyone is curious, this is what Hugh looks like when people estimate him at 90/91 KG: Click Here

He looks very aesthetic as a late 40s older lifter. And he could easily look like that again if he went back on the TRT.
Yharnamman said on 19/Jan/21
@grizz Thats a very recent photo, might be like a couple months old. Hes likely off TRT and lost a lot of muscle since hes not doing any roles right now. Given a guy in his early 50s might naturally produce around 400 ng/dl compared to men under 35 producing 500-900 ng/dl.
ChaosControl 6'2 1/2 said on 18/Jan/21
@grizz that guy looks strange. Like his chest is too big for the rest of him. If not for his weird looking pecs he’s look like an ectomorph
grizz said on 16/Jan/21
With all due respect, that's not how a 90+ kg 6'1.5 guy looks like Click Here
He's close to that listed weight (82-85). As Wolverine he probably was in 90 kg ballpark, but not anymore.
ChaosControl 6'2.5 said on 14/Jan/21
@Rampage wouldn’t go as high as 95+, more 93-95. I hover around that range myself (currently 94.3kg) so I’ve got a very good picture of how it looks
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jan/21
When training for Wolverine I wouldn't surprised if he was 95kg+....
Yharnamman said on 12/Jan/21
@K.A Yes hes definitely not 82 KG, thats what an average 6'2" guy would weigh. I think he usually hovers around 90 or 91 KG, but when you see those screenshots of him insanely lean at 7% body fat, hes likely 86 KG there.
ChaosControl 6'2.5 said on 11/Jan/21
@K.A I can see him being over 93kg during his Wolverine days
Vincent Caleb said on 10/Jan/21
Agree with slim. Weak 6’2” peak, 6’1.25” current.
slim 6'1 said on 8/Jan/21
He’d definitely edge Gerard butler
K.A said on 7/Jan/21
Rob,any idea of his weight??,I often see 82kg or 85kg but I am sure as wolverine he weighed closer to 90 kg ,I mean he looks more muscular than a guy like CR7 and they both are close to each other heigh wise.
Editor Rob
I could believe 90kg at times

Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 27/Dec/20
187/188cm range peak.
Animus said on 23/Dec/20
Rob, I wasn’t really thinking of herniated discs. To my understanding activity makes you feel worse when you have a herniated disc. When I have “popped” my lower back doing deadlifts, usually activity has made my back feel better, so I don’t think I have a herniated disc. I was just wondering whether I could have lost 1/8th of an inch. I am usually 182.6cm at night (just shy of 6’0). I really hope I’m not creeping towards 182cm flat already, I’m only 25!
Editor Rob
an MRI could tell if the discs had any sort of change like thinning or degeneration, which can happen through regular heavy lifting for years.
Animus said on 22/Dec/20
Rob, how significant does an injury have to be for someone to lose as little as say 1/8th of an inch? Can a guy in his 20s that has messed up and popped his back a few times lifting weights expect to have lost a slight amount of height? We're not talking massive injuries, just "pops" in the lower back that causes some pain and stiffness for a few weeks, which then disappears. What do you think?
Editor Rob
with some herniation small fractions could be lost.
Slim 6'1" said on 16/Dec/20
Agree aj, the full 6’2” is a tad too high for Jackman
Long overdue for a 187 downgrade. He wouldn’t edge out the likes of Ben Affleck or Chris pratt
Aj06 said on 14/Dec/20
I think when he was younger he was defently a weak 6'2 now I would say 6'1.5 as of now.
Sean95 said on 13/Dec/20
Hiya Rob I was wondering in your opinion apart from Deadlifts and back exercises are there any other barbel lifts that risk height loss and in your opinion what do you think the limit you can weight train without sacrificing any height? Thanks for reading
Editor Rob
It's more forms of lifting that are putting tremendous strains on the spinal discs...repeated over many years raises the risk of damage occuring.
Slim 6'1" said on 9/Dec/20
187 max never the solid 6’2” like bana and Reynolds
Vsquad said on 26/Nov/20
Rob, do you think Hugh had already fallen to 6'1.5 by 2013/when he filmed Prisoners?

There just doesn't seem to be 3 inches between himself and Gyllenhaal, both in the movie and during press rounds.
Editor Rob
a fraction maybe by then yeah
Leesheff85 said on 25/Nov/20
Does hugh have the edge on nicole Kidman in the photo rob? If hes 6ft 2-3 in the shoes hes wearing and her heels are only small here shouldn't she look shorter next to him than she does?
Editor Rob
yeah I'd have said Hugh looks taller than Nicole in heels

Canson said on 25/Oct/20
@6’2 5/8: yep Rob assumes Lunch or afternoon. I feel Goldblum would be very similar with me. I’m around 6’5 or a (mm) over the Mark and 6’4.25 or a (mm) over in the afternoon. If anything maybe I’d have a mm on him or around that. I use my afternoon height too and I also just claim 6’4 like I mentioned for Goldblum only saying he was 6’4”. At an extreme low I’m a mm over 6’4 usually and got all the way down there once when I measured to a flat 6’4”
Slim 6'1" said on 25/Oct/20
187 better peak listing now 185.5-186
6'2 5/8ths said on 24/Oct/20
@Canson that's true, and yes Goldblum was probably a bit over 6'4. But isn't this website based on afternoon/evening heights? I always use my afternoon height after a busy day, otherwise I'd be claiming the 6'3 mark that I clear in the morning. Btw I'm the same guy who you responded to below, just changed my name since I got my measurement slightly wrong.
Canson said on 22/Oct/20
@6’2 and 3/5ths: not necessarily. If he were say 6’2.25” he would be 188.6 and may just be rounded to 189 from there. Some guys if they measure later in the day may stick with 6’2” if they are 6’2.25”. I can see that being the case with a peak Jeff Goldblum.
6'2 3/5ths 189.5 said on 22/Oct/20
@wiles190 why on earth would women care whether he's 188 or 189 lol? Also 189cm is 6'2, most people don't use fractions. Most people do round up to at least the nearest inch though, so maybe if be was 189 he'd claim 6'3.
Eric W. Tam said on 13/Oct/20
He's been listed as 6'4 before if I wasn't going crazy. He was then listed as 6'2 which seems right, hell that's what he claims, but now he magically shot up to 6'3 smh. Lol, wonder if Jackman ever claimed 6'3, probably did once or twice during his peak. Probably was 6'3 during his prime in the morning. But he's no taller than 6'2 ever now.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Oct/20
🎊🎈🎁🎂 Happy Birthday Hugh! 🎂🎁🎈🎊

Wishing popular actor Hugh Jackman a fantastic 52nd Birthday today. BTW, I just found all of 190cm for Hugh; the man himself admits to 6ft2.

He's a bit young to have already suffered height loss for a fit specimen like himself, but I guess it happens.

Peak - 6ft2
Today - 6ft1.5 😄👍🍻

Brandon(Aspiring 7 Footer) said on 9/Oct/20
@rob why is google listing Jackman as high as 190 cm now? Was he ever 6'2¾" in his life?
Editor Rob
there's several quotes from Hugh saying he was 6ft 2, so I wouldn't list him 190cm when he never seemed that tall.

I think Hugh Jackman is 6’, maybe his peak height was 6’1”. If he was 6’2”, he wouldn’t look a couple of centimeters shorter than Obama, who is 6’1”, or around 4 centimeters shorter than Dev Patel, who is a weak 6’2”.

Ian555, both looked like very solid 6ft2 guys peak hard to tell really...but I think Reynolds height is getting a little overestimated.

Jackman in the first X-Men and Swordfish looked more 189cm than 187cm, IMO.

Rob who do you think may have a greater chance of measuring taller: Hugh Jackman peak or Ryan Reynolds?
Editor Rob
Could be a slightly better chance for Ryan, but really I think it is quite close.

In a video with neil patrick harris he looked no less than 2 inches taller and no more than 3 inches taller than neil. I'm betting before spine problems etc, hugh generally was a weak 6ft2.

Today I think Murray measures taller, but at peak he may well have just smidged Murray, however Andy can pass for 6ft 2 with most folk anyway.

Ian, I think in his prime years he had a better chance at a little over 6ft2 than under
Ian555 said on 6/Jul/20
Rob for Jackman’s peak height, if he stood as straight and tall as he could on the stadiometer, would you not be shocked if he measured 6’ 2 1/8” or 6’ 2 1/4”? He generally never looks under 6’ 2” back in the day.
Editor Rob
I think right around the 6ft 2 mark in his 20's and 30's is believable for him, I mean at 10-11am he may well have got a little over the mark. I don't think Hugh is a guy who poses 'tall' like your Stallone's, he tends to drop height...but I do think he's lost half inch over last 5 years or so.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jul/20
His legs wouldn’t look disproportionate on a 6ft4 guy so yeah I can appreciate he can look taller than he really is

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/May/20
185cm is a joke today forget peak.
Val. said on 19/May/20

Definitely not, you have not done any analysis or measurements properly. Look up Zac Efron and Jackman in same footwear standing both with perfect posture side by side on even footing and same angle, Efron is 5'8 minimum,and looked that with a strong 6'2 Jackman, that was at least 6 inches there,possibly even 7. Not claiming Jackman is 6'3,more likely Efron is shy of 5'8 perhaps,but Jackman is a strong 6'2 in the evening. He has looked same height as Reynolds in the 2009 film and at premieres consistently,and Reynolds is a shade over 6'2. Jackman was taller than Obama by a strong inch at least, and that angling of that photo you saw was obvious in Obamas favor,tilted. You can't judge height. You have no idea what 1 inch or 5 centimeters(2 inches) actually is side by side.
HeightRealist said on 16/May/20
Hi Rob.I'm pretty convinced that Hugh Jackman is not as tall as listed. He is clearly and inch or more shorter than Ryan Reynolds. Ryan actually never stands completely straight so he might be slightly taller than 6'2. 188-189cm for Ryan and 184cm for Hugh. Hugh was shorter than Obama who is 185-186.

Peak 185, nowadays 184 for mr Jackman. Mr Jackman never looked 6'2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/May/20
I think more 187-187.5cm now and 188-188.5cm peak

his small head can make him look legit 6´2 when standign alone but in reality i think barely 188 peak maybe 187,5 and today he can looks 186-187

The guy has shrunk remarkably considering he's not even 50! A full inch, I believe.
Just compare pictures of him next to Ryan Reynolds, who too is over 40, but I don't believe he's lost a millimeter.

Eric W. Tam said on 1/Mar/20
6'2 is a perfect height for men, I know a 6'2 son of a gun who thinks he is a wax figure while I'm a peasant (despite me not being much shorter than him, stronger and more intelligent than him, but that's a conversation for another day) because he has that extra couple inches and change on me. So yeah don't get why Jackman is encouraged to lie about his height. Anyway, I swear he was once listed as 6'3 or 6'4. 6'3 would have been a white lie though 6'4+ would definitely be an embellishment. 6'1.5 now, 6'2 in his prime, has yet to lose a lot of height since he's in his early 50s, it would be interesting to see if he still stands over 6'0 in his eighties. I'd say he'd be 1.81 to 1.84 during Jackman's final, peaceful days.

That’s one of just some picture of him and Ryan that i can rely on. Others picture that posted here is just Hugh standing further from the camera which can easily tell cuz his head look obviously smaller than Ryan. In the movie, he can olso look as tall as Ryan. And i don’t think that arm over shoulder should make Ryan lose any height unless he’s leaning or something.
Ryan Reynolds has a really good posture most of the time.
But probably that he maybe a little shorter than Ryan.

Its obvious from that pic that he is holding Ryan down as some celebs do at times in pics. Ofc I don't think that is Hugh's intention but you can see from his arm that this is the case.

Animus said on 18/Dec/19
Rob, you say that doing heavy deadlifts causes greater levels of height loss than would otherwise be expected. Is that statement based on research? I see where you are coming from, especially if the lift is executed with bad form (too much rounding in the back). However, if someone practices good form and refrains from doing overly strenuous squats and deadlifts, is it possible/likely to avoid that kind of height loss?
Editor Rob
there have been a couple of studies I've seen in the past on athletes which suggest weightlifting is one discipline which increases risk of damage and disc issues.

Jackman actually looked 189-190cm in The Prestige beside Bale and Caine..
Uriel said on 30/Oct/19
Kidman wears 10 cm heels while men shoes heel around 2-3 cm. So if Kidman height 180 cm Jackman's height suppose to be around 187-188 cm at that picture. Michael Caine listed at the same height with Jackman but if you see them at the Prestige Jackman suppose to be 5-7cm taller than Caine (listed as 188 cm), but I think Jackman can't be more than 193 cm.
Tessa Van Nunen said on 24/Oct/19
Dev Patel looks more atleast 2-3cm taller than him. Dev Patel has a very similar build to me, I am 189cm and skinny. I think Hugh Jackman is 186cm max, and Dev patel is 188-189cm

Somewhere in 40's, the years of weight lifting I think have effected his back. As mentioned before, he's dead lifting massive don't magically get up to that range without years of doing it, and you are lucky by mid 40's not to have done some disc damage.

@Jammes. 5’11 is still too tall for wolverine, he is supposed to be even shorter than an average man, Marvel needs to find someone who is under 5’7 or 5’8, and quite grizzled looking dude, Hugh Jackman imo was way too tall and too much of a pretty boy to play wolverine, who is supposed to be short, ridiculously hairy and not very good looking?

I think Scott Caan would be a better fit for the character he is short, young, kinda good looking but not pretty boy level of looks.
