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, Les Miserables, Australia, Prisoners and Swordfish. The Van Helsing director Stephen Sommers described Hugh as being "six-foot-two and 210 pounds of solid steel", a height which Hugh himself has said numerous times:
I'm 6-foot-2, so I'm too tall to sit comfortably in most chairs.
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?"

Either 187 or 188 peak, now 186-187
popo said on 10/Jan/18
Peak was definitely 6.2 ft no doubt.....currently is between 6.1-6.175 ft he looked almost an inch taller than John cena who's definitely almost 6.1 ft

Junior, I back up my statements...You just love to downgrade people

His shoe size is 12, no doubt, he is definitely in the 6'2 - 6'1 range
alex953 said on 27/Dec/17
If he was in WWE they would say he was 6'5

So I'd say he is still about 6'2
Mike said on 24/Dec/17
I doubt he was ever over 6ft 2, and more likely 6ft 1.5 or 6ft 1.75 peak and 6ft 1, 6ft 1.25 today.
berta said on 23/Dec/17
he was 2- cm taller than cena in james corden show. lets say cena is 184,8 . i guess about 187 seems right for him today.
Johno said on 17/Dec/17
Hmmm, Huge Jacked'man seemed to have a edge on John Cena on the James Corden show, 6'1 might cover most ranges.
Elektrafans said on 14/Dec/17
He is in the full 1.87-1.88 area, big guy.

I would say he's current height is 6'1.5 but he recovers the strong 6'2 for some times, same range than Reynolds.
Junior said on 13/Dec/17

Stop lying. Reynolds with converse still edge out Jackman with dress shoes on. Just accept the truth.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Dec/17
Back to back he'd probably have the edge over DDL (who might be 6ft1 flat now)

6ft1 max nevermind barely over 6ft is just rubbish Jackman. He looked practically eye to eye with Reynolds at Comic Con...
FatBoySlim185 said on 10/Dec/17
Hi, Rob. What do you make of this? Click Here
Editor Rob: Jackman at times doesn't look over 6ft 1, sometimes even not that much over 6ft, but I don't beleive he is always standing that good in photos.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Dec/17
I think he's currently a weak 6ft2 down from a strong 6ft2 at peak , I stick by that that.
Sam said on 22/Nov/17
Googling Daniel Craig with Jackman can show what a difference perspective can make, in some Jackman can seem over 4 inches taller, in others where the angle favors Craig, it can look like barely 2 inches between them, which is just not the case.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/17
At least 1in taller than Michael Caine (probably still at least 6ft1 then) in The Prestige
Edimar1.84 said on 9/Nov/17
In movies I can see him at 6ft2.5/6ft3 range some times... But In real life always looks 6ft2 for me at Past. Now no more than a 6ft1.5 guy, in the picture with Mrs Kidman he looks at weak 6ft1.
Bobby said on 7/Nov/17
I remember on IMDB when Hugh was listed at 6'2.5 back when he was playing portraying Wolverine, I could see him being 6'2.25 peak height. He still seemed to be 6'2 range even during Logan, there's a chance he's lost a fraction since then, maybe he was 6'1.75 or something.
Jack said on 6/Nov/17
6'2 peak and 6'1.5 now but returns to 6'2 for moments.
Edimar1.84 said on 1/Nov/17
6ft2.25 at peak, now 6ft1.5.

a bilion of "fake" 6 2 that is the most "abused" height ever.
6 1 now and his prime.
Slim 6' said on 25/Oct/17
Rob, I don't mean to sound pressuring, but we added x-men universe Reynolds to the marvel page, can we please do the same for Jackman?

As listed.
Editor Rob: yesterday I was doing another category, but I will look at the marvel universe soon and put more people in it from X-Men...
Joshua said on 25/Oct/17
He is still 6’2 now!!
Grit said on 25/Oct/17
Reynolds would have edged out a prime jackman
Slim 6' said on 22/Oct/17
Please add to marvel universe. Like we did for Reynolds.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Oct/17
I think a prime Jackman (pre X-Men days) would have been pretty much bang on the same as Reynolds
Slim 6' said on 20/Oct/17
Checkmate, go to the "general page" and announce your new and old username. @mark5'9.5" changed to dreampuffe and did it. My suggestion of course. 👍🏻
Checkmate said on 17/Oct/17
He could have been 188cm max in his youth but i wouldnt go over it. Today in his 50s and after a lifetime of unhealthy lifting a 1-1.5cm height loss isnt shooking.

Rob, is my ban permenent? I would like to use my original username but take away 188

I feel like my behavior has been explained, it was a once in a lift time crazy rant after a really bad week, and comments truley getting under my skin. I defenitly see why the reactions were so strong... Im sorry if anyone got offended.
Editor Rob: no, just stick with Checkmate and if we stick away from politics, it makes it simpler.
Some Guy said on 14/Oct/17
Rob, I don't think this downgrade is really that necessary. I just watched Logan and he was an inch taller than Boyd Holbrook. I think he was around the same height as Richard E. Grant.
Junior said on 14/Oct/17
Jackman must be 188.5cm peak and still at least myabe a few mm overr 187cm now. 186.7cm sound abit too low.
Bobby said on 4/Oct/17
IMDB listed him at 6'2.5 once, I'm not sure if they still do. Hugh has also been listed at 6'3 before.
Dejavu said on 30/Sep/17
He still looks above 6'1 for sure.

He looked similar height to Ryan Reynolds maybe at most a tad shorter. He also looks above 6'1 with Channing Tatum. I think he is 186 or 187 still.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/17
HHH possibly by a hair. He could look a solid 189cm guy in the 90's.
Dejavu said on 18/Sep/17
He looked closer to 189cm next to John Travolta.
John Cena said on 17/Sep/17
Rob who will win the stadiometer. Peak Jackman or Triple h?
Editor Rob: couldn't pick one.
Raza said on 9/Sep/17
Come on guys, I really don't think Jackman has dropped from 188. His pictures with Ryan Reynolds, Ben Affleck and more recently Boyd Holbrook (in Logan) prove it. 188 AT LEAST.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 7/Sep/17
@Lol, going by your logic, I would have been 6'0.75" since in one photo, I managed to appear taller than a 6'0.5" best friend of mine. (While he's clearly taller than me in person.) At times, I managed to look only 1-2 inches shorter than someone who edged out Barack Obama in several pictures. (I won't post pictures of him and Obama out of respect.)

Don't focus everything on one picture.
Willes188 said on 5/Sep/17
Flat 186cm seems too low for Jackman today, this listing is spot on
Slim said on 5/Sep/17
Hi rob, I've compared jackman to Crowe and Kidman,
They're less than 3 inches apart. This would make Jackman 6'1.25" or crowe and Kidman 5'10.75"
This is current btw not peak.
Willes188 said on 1/Sep/17
Yes I believed or wanted to believe that a young Jackman could stand 6'2.25, but as Rob himself says opinions change over time.

6'2 prime is good in my opinion but 6'1.75 is not unthinkable, I don't think he was as tall as Reynolds who most agree are 188-189cm
Mark(5'9.5") said on 31/Aug/17
I honestly think Jackman is a solid legit 6'2" maybe a fraction over it at peak. He sometimes looked taller than Ryan Reynolds back then.
Tom said on 30/Aug/17

That was a joke interview, so it should probably be taken with a grain of salt.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Aug/17
Willes188 said on 27/Mar/17
More 188-189cm at peak than 187-188cm. He probably measured 190cm on the dot in the morning. Nowadays he looks 186.5-187cm, and probably measures 188-188.5cm in the morning

Ring any bells, Will?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Aug/17
Looked similar to Reynolds at comic con, maybe at worst Ryan edged him slightly but in other photos Hugh actually looked taller! Can't be more than a centimetre between them. 10-20 years ago Jackman would have been no shorter than Reynolds.
Willes188 said on 25/Aug/17
Slim I've always said that Reynolds was taller than peak Jackman, Hugh 6'1.75-6'2 peak and Reynolds 6'2.25

Hugh is admitting that Reynolds is taller does this mean Hugh is over listed or Reynolds under listed?

That movie is from 09 Hugh was still peak height.
I do believe Reynolds might maintain the 6'2" mark when going to sleep, the same can't be said for peak Jackman.

He can't be shrining over 1 cm. Maybe at peak he is really 6'2 and closer to 6'1.75" now.
Slim 182 cm said on 9/Aug/17
Michael, nope, he wore out his body with excessive bodybuilding, I'm sure by 60 he'll be 185 or less.
Hopefully I'll see him at the airport one day...
He actually does look 186 next to Russ and Nicole.

Garrett is listed 6ft 1.25in and he towers Hugh. Thoughts?
Editor Rob: they both could be the same height, though you could find a photo like that with Hugh seeming a bit taller, just like you can find Hedlund looking taller.

He is 185-186 at most!He may look 6'2 with Jake Gyllenhall but that's because Jake is closer to 5'10 and he looks 3 inches shorter than conan.He may have been a strong 187 in his younger days and that's it.Stop with those ridiculous 190-189 claims.

The irony of @lols comment is, if Jackman lives to 90 he may reach that height.
Hijopotamus said on 17/Jul/17
@Lol, the pic with Nadal means nothing. Maybe Jack is bending his knees as he is holding the mobile or camera with his right hand.
Slim 182 cm said on 17/Jul/17
Rob, I'm a really skinny weak guy(nowhere near jackmans peak weight and strength), but will calisthenics(push-ups and pull-ups etc) shrink my height like this guy?
Editor Rob: those are good exercises, they won't effect your height negatively.
spainmen192cm said on 16/Jul/17
Rob, this cannot be good for height health x)
Click Here
Editor Rob: yes, as I say, he's lifting massive weights. The pressures on the spine with these lifts will increase likelihood of damage.

To get to those ranges takes years of weight lifting efforts.
Slim 181 cm said on 16/Jul/17
TBH, rob and the visitors, what caused Jackman to shrink? He seems healthy to me, was it excessive bodybuilding and H.G.H.? That's what my money's on.
or an injury from stunts.
Editor Rob: look up some of Jackman's videos on don't get to the weight Jackson can lift, without years of building up to massive weights.

I think he's compressed his discs and possibly has a few issues and degeneration in them.
Lol said on 15/Jul/17
You guys are fokin crazy if you think this guy is 6'2 lol.

Take a look at his pic with 6'0 Nadal confirmed by full body picture with 5'8 serrena williams on the same day and event.

This guy is wearing high heel shoes.

There's even a picture with him beside a bmw x5 which is 5'8 in height when he was wearing sports shoes which didnt have high heels o it.

You guys are fokin crazy to think this man is 6'2.

He is 5'10.5 max at his current age.
You place him barefoot with a real 6'2 like andy murray, he'll have to climb a ladder.
RichardSpain said on 15/Jul/17
Sometimes he looks 189 cm/190 cm in screen but in real life is other history so.. I am going agree with Rob 187cm barefoot to Jackman nowadays is believable. I think he is that.
Willes188 said on 14/Jul/17
Sorry Rampage but Jackman was never as tall as Reynolds, even if i would like him to be taller there's just no chance.

Imo peak Jackman was just below 188cm rather than just above, at 187.7-187.8cm, whilst I wouldn't be surprised if Reynolds measured just over 189cm, at 189.2-189.3cm. The more I see of Reynolds the more convinced I'm getting towards strong 6'2 weak 6'3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jul/17
I think a 30-year old Jackman would give Reynolds a run for his money under a stadiometer.

The "Hugh Jackman Wimbledon" selfie with Nadal isn't efficient proof, we can't even see their full body's! they're most likely slouching to get in the photo or sitting down. 😂
Mark(5'9.5 said on 5/Jul/17
Rob, is it me or do I find the Jackman being 5'10" in the comment section beyond insanity?
Editor Rob: well there's those who attempt a troll estimate and those who genuinely believe it.

The further you guess from a kind of believable range, the more obvious it can be that you ain't so genuine.
Lol said on 4/Jul/17
@hijopotamus they're both standing up.
Look at serrena williams with jackman and nadal with jackman.
Serenna is 5'8.5

Jackman is 5'10.5 to 5'11 max.. he just wears elevator shoes most of the time.

Lol jackman is 5'10 max
Nadal is not even 6'1 just under it and that is his real height because tennis players don't overestimate their heights.

Have you seen Nadal and Jackman?
Nadal is 185cm Jackman is 178-179cm max although at a younger age and not lifting heavy weights yet, he was probably 180-181cm and ofcourse with shoes for the figures here.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jun/17
Again it's all about bone structure. People see The Rock as overweight or over bulked...wrong...he's naturally a big-framed guy and was heavier in his college football years when he was on the cusp of an NFL career. Today he's close enough to that weight but much more cut.

berta said on 2/Jun/17
i guess hugh doesnt have that big bones, have he? He have built up his body really great but i think his body from the beginninge looked tall and pretty skinny. But i can be wrong. I think people with big bones like john cena shrink at a very old age and guys like ryan reynolds and hugh jackman shrink early.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 1/Jun/17
200 pounds is a normal weight for one who is 6'1"-6'2". One wouldn't be overweight in this height range until they weigh in at like 225 pounds.
berta said on 30/May/17
hehe yeah 200 pounds is pretty nomral for that height. I think i said it out wrong. What i meant was if you weight about 200 pounds like him and maybe bench 260 pounds in benchpress i relly dont think that is enough weights to make you shrink over 1 cm at that age.
Bazza said on 25/May/17
@willes188 - nope, 150 is a bit under weight for your height. I am about same height as you, i run 5 days a week and even when i did marathon training lowest i got to was 175. I still run but with added weight training i am a shade over 200 now, 190/200 is standard weight for most people 6'1 plus who works out.
dxD said on 24/May/17
@Willes188 Keep in mind that he is quite fight and a lot of that weight is probably muscles, he seems to work out a lot, for personal fitness but mostly acting roles I would assume.

Not many people were taller than a peak Hugh Jackman except a few.
Adam said on 18/May/17
Definitely a 6'2. Good comparison is him with Jake Gyllenhaal.
berta said on 18/May/17
i remmeber back in 2005 or something like that everyone was guessing him to be 189 and said 188 was to low. i still think this weight lift thing is little overrated. He looks to me to be 188 at best and proibably is 187,4 in evenig an still is.( can have lost 4 mm by now) But dont really think so. He seems to weight about 200 pounds and that is pretty light for a guy his height. And he lifts pretty normal weight in his vidoes. No way he have lost any real height because of lifting those weight. If he would have been 250 pounds muscle and lifted 600 pounds in deadlift then i can believe that he could have lost a fraction by now. I thill stand by my about 187,5 guy then and maybe still now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/May/17
186cm looks too low even today. Nothing below a solid 187cm...
James B said on 4/May/17
Rob do you think he probably would have lost no height though if was 5ft7 (even if he lifted big weights)
Editor Rob: no, he wouldn't have lost as much with a spine a few inches smaller in length.

Hugh is taller than Cena, but not by much though

Cena needs a bit of an upgrade to 6'0.75'', since he is actually taller than Dean Ambrose!

He needs to be put to Deans listed height at the very least.

I think he definitely is bit more than just 184cm

OR maybe Hugh isn't as tall as you think? Cena claims to be 6 feet , 6 foot 1 in shoes so he isn't a weak 6'1' barefoot. He would have a 6'2" claim if that was true. Hugh does indeed look 6'1.25" (186) alot nowadays. I am also in the camp that believes he was no more than 6'1.75" (187) peak.
Jug said on 30/Apr/17
He's not even 50 yet. You think he lost height? Why? I would say 6'2 for sure.
Editor Rob: he spent 15+ years lifting big weights, doing a lot of deadlifting...long-term that can impact discs. I still think he has lost 1cm since his early 30's.

Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 26/Apr/17

You're right. Jackman could be 186.5cm (about 6ft1.5) today. I doubt he was a solid 6ft2 peak though. I can't see a half inch height loss, a quarter inch maybe.
berta said on 26/Apr/17
i think in the photo where they look at eachother and both stand tall you can see that jackman is taller about half inch.i cant see cena taller than 185 that means that jackman could be down to 186,5 today. but its just one photo its hard to judge height on only that. i believe jckman still is 187-187,5

He looked 6ft 2 range in X-Men 1 & 2.

@Mark a fraction over 6'2 for Hugh places Brandon routh a fraction over 6'3 which is unlikely to be safe Hugh peaked at 6'1.75 and routh 6'2.5
Mark(5'9.25 said on 15/Apr/17
a fraction over 6'2" is fine for Jackman.

187cm today but 10-20 years ago he was 188-189cm

Hugh is and has always been 187. I don't think he has lost height tbh.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/17
@Willes188: I think that mark is possible for him. He really could look like a 6ft3 guy at times in the past...and probably was out of bed
Willes188 said on 9/Apr/17
Same height as me in his prime 188.5-189cm, but we both round down to 188cm or 6ft 2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Apr/17
I think he's still close to 6ft2 today when measured
shiva 181 cms said on 6/Apr/17
@Berta I agree with you, he hasn't lost much may be a cm i depends much on genetics too
Cameron said on 5/Apr/17
Peak height???? I don't think he's lost any height but maybe he has.
180 said on 4/Apr/17
He looks 189cm
berta said on 4/Apr/17
shiva yes he lifts heavy( in some peoples eyes) but i can tell you as a carpenter and also bodybuilder/strongman that lifting, lets say deadlift 8 sets start easy at 100 kg and work his way up to maybe at best 170 kg if he does not try to max.You lift for about o total time of maybe 4 minues at most. Ore lets say lift up 30 plasterboards 5 stairs up for a total time of 1 hour and all of them wight about 35 kg each. And then rest of the day you lift to but just as a example. its only 35 kg but you lift non stop 1 hour that day and then 1/3 of the time rest of the day ore lift 150 kg for 4 minutes. :P i think you guys see what i mean.its when you lift for that long periods of time you start to hurt your back and it start to really hurt. FOr me trainig is a play in the park even if i lift weight up at 250 kg. I only lift it for a couple sekunds each time with a belt around my back. Jackman as a carpenter woudl have been 185 cm today If this is the case he have lost height. Most of the time in the gym you actuyally just rest for the next set.
Mike said on 31/Mar/17
Lol at the people saying minimum 189 peak, when he was clearly almost a inch shorter than legit 6ft 2.5 Brandon Routh over 10 years ago... I can buy 6ft 2 peak, but definitely not over.
shiva 181 cms said on 31/Mar/17
Hugh jackman's height

peak height: 6'2.5-75(189-190cms) out of bed ,6'1.7 (187-
188cms) before bed

Current height :6'2--25 (188-189cms) out of bed
6'1.25-(186cms) before bed
Willes188 said on 28/Mar/17
lol barely 188cm. Easily 188-188.5cm in his finest days, and 190cm in the morning, today he can appear barely 187cm at times, but would probably measure it on the nose
Namor said on 28/Mar/17
Berta* Dammit I do part time labouring haha I better not lose height haha
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/17
Comfortably 188cm range at peak with a decent shot at measuring 189cm on a good day. You need to go back to Aussie stuff from the 90's before he became a big star. He could even give a 190/191cm impression at times. He was very lanky and reminded me a bit of Ashton Kutcher frame-wise.
shiva 181 cms said on 28/Mar/17
@ berta Hugh lifts much heavier weights than a carpenter even if for a hour that causes much strain on back bone

Willes188 said on 27/Mar/17
More 188-189cm at peak than 187-188cm. He probably measured 190cm on the dot in the morning. Nowadays he looks 186.5-187cm, and probably measures 188-188.5cm in the morning
berta said on 27/Mar/17
barely 188 peak and today little over 187 i dont believe this 1/2 loss. its mutch harder to work as a carpeneter all days than lift heavy 1 hour a day i promise you i should now who do both. and if you los this just from working out then every carpenter out there should have lost 1 inch at the age of 45
Huge Jackedman said on 25/Mar/17
@grizz He started a dehydration routine when shooting his anorexic shirtless scenes for Les Miserables and his shirtless scenes for every X-Men film from The Wolverine onwards. It causes his body fat to compress inwards and leave only muscle, as well as causing his veins to flare up and bloat. This is the cause for his thin appearance.
Shiva182cms said on 25/Mar/17
189cms for a peak jackman sounds impossible look at him with Brandon routh. Who's a real 189cms guy

Hugh hackman peak height is 187-188cms probably closer to 187cms
Now he's more 186cms and a few change
grizz said on 23/Mar/17
He surprisingly held its own next to 6'7 behemoth Merchant in Logan. But he lost some muscle compared to his early 2010 days. Sure, shredded he is, but way thinner.
Chris said on 23/Mar/17
Pretty much bang on 6"2 5 years ago and always had good posture so could maybe look like on the verge of 6"3 . When I watched the wolverine (2013) he looked noticeable shorter than his roles in the years before. Though at time of filming he would have been only 44 but the weightlifting for the wolverine roles does looking ensue as it is for most superhero roles now he has done a good 15 years for. He certainly did not look the full 6"2 in Eddie the eagle so I think he is a rare case of early height loss. I think the listing is spot on or either he was always a smudge under and is now 6"1.5
Willes188 said on 22/Mar/17

Lorne??? said on 18/Mar/17
Ron, cards on the table: they were likely within a half cm, so too close to call, really, but still:

Who would measure taller under the stadiometer:

Hugh Jackman, young, or a peak Michael Madsen?

I think Madsen maybe, but we can't be sure really.

Still, I would appreciate you're opinion

Same guy with Mike Tyson.

At peak he is a strong 6'2. There were pics where he edged Ryan reynolds

I would not be surprised if he would measure near 6'1 flat today
Willes188 said on 13/Mar/17
He looks 6'3 in Logan, just look at him next to Stephen who is a gaint!!!
Sam said on 13/Mar/17
He does look pretty tall in Logan. He's probably aided with favorable angles but does pull off looking bigger on screen than Boyd Hoydbrook and Eriq La Salle (who may have lost a smidge with age too) and not looking much under Stephen Merchant, who did have a noticeable slouch in their scenes together.
Chris said on 10/Mar/17
Next to Stephen merchant in Logan he could look pretty much 6"2 but was wearing boots
Chris said on 10/Mar/17
I think peak 6"1.75 and now 6"1.5. Boots could make him look taller
Shredder said on 10/Mar/17
Rob , Even though your not into Comics anymore , do you think 195 lbs at 5'3 for Wolverine is an unbelievable figure by looking at the shape of character? At 5'3 he seems like he'd be like 150 - 160.
Editor Rob: it's not that unbelievable if he has a ton of muscle, which from what I remember, the comic character did have...

I do watch a lot of comic movies of course...but, they are over-saturated was inevitable because with the advance in film and cgi effects, it became easier to create great looking comic book films...

I remember reading a few years back on his IMDB that he was listed as 6'2.5 or a weak 6'3. I wonder how possible that is for Hugh back when he was in his 20's or 30's.

He could certainly give that impression at times
Logan said on 9/Mar/17
He edged out 6ft 1.5 Boyd Holbrook in Logan by at least a half inch, so either Jackman is still 6ft 2 or Holbrook needs a downgrade to a flat 6ft 1. Both were wearing similar heel boots in the scenes they shared together.
sadboyz said on 9/Mar/17
how come he lost height at such an early age?
Editor Rob: Jackman has done a lot of heavy weights over 15 years, I believe it effected him half an inch.

Same here , he doesn't have to be a 5'3 Actor , but Maybe about 5'7.

@Peter 179cm

The picture with lebron james couldn't view their footwear and standing ground and atually jackman look more than 7" shorter minus a hair not 15-16cm and there is impossible lebron is 6'9 and not even a proper 6'7. In fact 6'4.75 Kobe bryant look at most 2" shorter than lebron james in real comparison. To me i have seem hugh jackman look 5.5" shorter than 6'6.5 daniel cudmore

Click Here full frame could tell a person height and more i look a jackman he does look 6'1 and at least 6'2 with shoes but if 187 peak like you say he can't be lower than 186cm his not even 50 years old yet at most he lost 1cm
Peter 179cm said on 1/Feb/17
He's about 185cm.Just look at pictures of him with Lebron James who absolutely dwarfed him,atleast 15-16cm and Lebron was measured 201cm flat on the draft combine and could barely be 200cm at night.Kaka at 186 is also taller,what else do you need?He's NOT 6'1.5-6'2 imo...Maybe 187 peak and 185 now anything more is inaccuate.

Dick curtis said on 14/Jan/17
I am 36 and havent lost a millimeter. If hugh is 1.87 right now then he probably was that 15 years ago as well. If he really was 1.88 back then, than he probably still is right now. Het is physically in ideal condition
Willes189 said on 13/Jan/17
He is not young...

Children 0-12 years old

Teenagers 13-16 years old

Late teens/young adults 17-19 years old

Young adults 20-29 years old

Adults 30-40 years old

Middle aged 40-55 years old

55< old

This is an interesting topic for sure! The best age range is probably 17-27 imo
dicky curtis said on 10/Jan/17
he is still quite young and in peak condition, lean and ideal weight. I would be surprised If he really already lost a half inch in height.
Willes189 said on 9/Jan/17

berta said on 10/Dec/16
the reason i think someone like jackman hasnt lost height of training butt dwayne has is if you look at hugh jackmans body you can see he is natural. he is very ripped and have a lot of muscles but nothing that nobidy cant get in 2 years of hard training sp i think hakcman was barely 188 peak an still is like 187,5 . dwayne lift mutch heavier weight that is hard to recover from and that low bodyfat does make your joints get injured. then the steroids on top of that. i think if people would use steroids as trt and have maxed testo it would not effect them but when they take huge amoutnts and then take less for a while and back and fort, thats when the bone density will get hurt and you will loose height and eisier hurt yourself

He's a 6'1.75 guy in his prime now hes no more than 6'1.25 maybe on a good day he might measure 6'1.5

His peak out of bed height estimate would be 189-190 cms and evening height would be187-188cms he has a short torso he wouldn't have shrunk more than 2cms
Bobby said on 7/Nov/16
He can easily look 6'3 even today when he's nearing 50 years old. So 6'2 seems about right, but it's strange, he can look 6'4 at times. He looked especially tall in The Wolverine. Maybe he was wearing special shoes, who knows. Even the taller actors are known for wearing shoe lifts, but Hugh seems very honest about his height.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 3/Nov/16
6'2" in his peak.

Rob... Hope you are well... I saw Jackman not so long ago, in a Gym in Bondi.

I have a picture of him and I... he was slightly bigger... I'd peg him at 6'2" for sure.

Happy to send it through :)
Editor Rob: it's definitely worth linking to, why not use or something to upload and add a comment.

Yes and Brandon Routh is easily 6'3".

No wait he is 6'2.5". Next to Beckham also looks this listing ( 6'1.5") max. I can even see an argument for 6'1.25".

Every inch of 6ft2 peak and no less.

Almost 50, heavy weight lifting for quite a few years, and possibly just bad genetics when it comes to his skeleton, height loss for him isn't insane or anything.
6'2" peak
6'1.25"ish today
Roy said on 1/Oct/16
Is he old enough to have a peak height? Must be all the weight lifting shrinking him down.
S.J.H said on 30/Sep/16
Theres a celebrity forum discussion about hugh jackman physics and height. An aussie teen who claim 6'1-1/4 barefoot saying no way jackman was taller than him and post a full picture with jackman a year ago , aussie teen looking 2cm taller jackman with similar footwear that makes jackman 6'0.5 but i don't buy that since this guy doesn't post a picture he get measure and he could be growing taller since he was only 18 as he mention on that forum. He could be grow out a bit at 6'2 with jackman. I think jackman is not quite 6'1.5 maybe 6'1.25 sticking my oldest guessing

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Sep/16
@Willes189: He could certainly look it at times in the past w/h guys like Travolta and Bale. A very solid 6ft2 guy in his 20's-30's is a good shout (i.e. 188.3cm or something like that). I think he may very well have measured a similar range to Affleck, Reynolds and Cusack.

187cm range seems a little low for his peak, IMO.
Andrea said on 18/Sep/16
6'2.5 is a big joke for Hugh... You can see him with Brandon Routh, who IS a legit 6'2.5 guy and looks at least an inch taller! And Daniel too... Btw, in case you don't know, Daniel himself did claim to have been measured at 6'6.5... So, no, he's not 200-202! Hugh has never been a full 6'2, let alone over that mark! Today, there's more than one picture where he can look BARELY 6'1!
Willes189 said on 17/Sep/16
Don't know about that Rob.. He looks 200-202cm in that photo, or something like that, Extremly Tall Guy!!

And let's take everything that has the name Charles Barkley in the title with a grain of salt. Just look at how he made 6'2.5-6'3 The Rock look like.. No way on earth that the guy is 6'4 range, and it's impossible for him to be with his genes, his dad is 7'0!

6'2.25 is still very possible for peak Jackman
Willes189 said on 15/Sep/16

What would you guess Jackman's peak height to be? IMDb has him at 6'2 1/2 now, could that be a good guess?
Editor Rob: he only claims 6ft 2, if you see him beside a genuine 6ft 6.5 Cudmore: Cudmore vs Jackman, also with Barkley...I doubt I'd list Daniel 6ft 6 and then put Jackman 6ft 2.5.

It would be impossible to really argue those figures.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Sep/16
Anything under 6ft2 peak is a joke. Just look at him w/h Travolta in Swordfish.
Willes189 said on 13/Sep/16
I miss the late 90s and early 00s (00-10) Hugh Jackman... What a guy he was back then :(

Rob, are you sure that 6'2.25 is out of question? I just re-watched The Prestige yesterday, for the 3rd time (outstanding movie) ,and he looked really tall next to 6'0 Bale, he made him look under average in some parts of the movie
Editor Rob: yes The Prestige is a great film, I think about 6ft 2 is ok for him, I could see an argument of a late 90's Jackman looking a solid 6ft 2 at times though.

Hugh jackman's peak height is (6'1.75) and now (6'1.25) he appeared very tall in all x-men series and all his movies but he appears tall because of his long limbs and average torso a small head for his height one need not be a strong 6'2 guy to be tall or appaer tall his stature is pretty tall if he had a head size like reynolds to his high shoulders he could have been an easy 189 cms guy in his peak , there a cm b/w them
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/16
@Willes189: First off, I don't think there's as much as 2cm between Jackman and Reynolds. Hugh I think was a strong 6ft2 and is now a weak 6ft2. Reynolds who is almost 10 years younger than Jackman is currently a strong 6ft2. Back to back in their prime they were identical, I feel

Funny I remember him being listed 6 4 at the time the first xmen came out comic geeks will notice that is a full foot taller than the canon one.
He looked quite tall in those flicks but was likely wearing boots think he tends to favor them.
In photos he looks 6 7 next to the hobbit reject macavoy and tall next to fassbender.
he is not 5 10 but after all the weird diets and bodybuilding he is likely 6 1 or so now.
Willes189 said on 2/Sep/16
This is a hard one Rampage, he was probably 187.5-188cm (6'2), but that sweet 6'2.5 mark could be out of reach for him 00-05, Reynolds is in his peak now and looks 0.25 inches taller then peak Jackman. But then Reynolds is probably more 189.5cm, 190cm is a stretch for him

Peak Hugh 187.5 (6'2) could he relly be 188-189 (6'2.25) at peak?. I'm going to start my re-investigation on Jackman's peak height this weekend, i want to believe that he was 6'2.25 at peak

Reynolds 189.5 (6'2.25-6'2.5) tall guy, he is keeping it low profile

I'm not happy to say that i agree, i used to think that Hugh was one of the most solid 6'2 guys in Hollywood, he looked so tall on screen in X-men 1&2, and his officiall height seemed to be 189cm everywhere on the internet back in 00-05

Still, I'm not sure the heavy lifting would have caused the loss as opposed to age/genetics/postural issues. The study that Rob and others like to cite showing the effect of weightlifting on spinal degeneration was done on Olympic weightlifters, who, although they were mostly only in their mid-20s at the time, would still have done 10+ years of extreme training of a kind that is impossible to imagine for a non-elite athlete (we're talking 2 times a day, six days week, lifting massive loads explosively at a high volume). Jackman, although he's done plenty of "heavy" lifting for a civilian, wouldn't have done anything like that.

The study I take my bearings from on this issue is the well-known Finnish twin study. They compared the spines of twins where one twin had done heavy labor over a lifetime or been a truck driver, anything that appears to put great stress on the back, while the other had been, say, an office worker. The differences, at least as they appeared on an MRI, were negligible, suggesting spinal degeneration is mostly genetic.

And even then, it's not clear how much of standing height loss is attributable to actual spinal degeneration and how much to muscular degeneration and general postural decline related to age. I've had friends, athletes who get measured regularly, who've had serious spinal injuries and have pretty much lost a whole disc or two, and it's made no measurable difference to their afternoon standing height, which suggests that, if spinal degeneration does make a great difference, it's really through degeneration through the whole link of the spine, and not the kind of localised damage that occurs as a result of training and injuries (which fits with the fact that old people's spines don't lengthen as much as young people's spines under traction).

As for the pro wrestlers, who really do seem to lose height with age, this reflects, I think, the fact that their heights were inflated when they were young, and the general physical detonation that seems to afflict wrestlers as a result of the lifestyle—not only constant falling and injuries, but endless travel on the road, drug abuse etc. Most of these guys are just in pretty bad general shape by the time they get to 50 or so, not standing as tall as they once did.

I'm still thinking he was 6ft 2 at one point. I strictly remember In X-Men Origins: Wolverine in a scene with 187 Danny Huston, he looked to have 0.5 to 1 inch on him, which would make him 189 cm...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jul/16
Looked nothing under 6ft2 10-15 years ago and more often could appear 189cm zone

Rob, would you say that the difference between Nicole Kidman's eye level to the top of the head is likely more signifcant than Hugh Jackman's? The eye level difference between the two looks to be 4 CM, but I see 2 CM tops between them in that photo.
Editor Rob: a slight downtilt from Nicole and it will make her eyelevel look bigger, which I think is happening...although she too has what I would believe is half inch of hair.

Rob what do you think of them photos. I think he looked 189cm early 2000s but now a bit shorter probably around 187cm.
Editor Rob: the daily mail site is very resource intensive, so I don't visit it much, but Jackman I don't think was more than 188 15 years ago.

Rob, Would 6'1.75 would be his maximum height at the age he is right now?
Editor Rob: somewhere around 187cm range I think today, but 15 years ago I do think he was nearer 188cm.

He's now listed at 6'3 on IMDB. That's in shoes definitley
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 15/Jul/16
If Nicoles heels give her 4 inches, if hugh stood up straight, he'd look marginally taller. 187/188cm I'd put him in
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 13/Jul/16
I'm 187 CM with an inseam of 28 inches. Is that short for my height? My torso does seem very long.
AAAA said on 12/Jul/16
interesting article here from a costume designer who worked with Hugh Jackman for one of his one man plays. He seamstress says he has a 37 in inseam!?!?! Thats just absurd. I'm going to guess the avg 6'1-6'2 guy has a 33 or a 34. If this is true I can't imagine him being any less than 6'2 at his prime.

Rob, any info or stats on this kinda stuff? Most people I've met with 36+ inseams are 6'4 or greater. Not saying Jackman is or has ever been over his claimed 6'2, I think you've got his current listing spot on. I'm just curious. That kids leg to torso ratio reminds me of someone like a young Clint Eastwood.

Editor Rob: maybe the seamstress got a little excited at the thought of running her tape up Jackman's legs...and put down the wrong number...

Jackman in those shoes Id say is 190cm+

Hugh Jackman's hair adds an inch of height in that photo, but he does look taller than Nicole Kidman by about 2-3 CM still.
Alex said on 27/Jun/16
In that photo Kidman looks tall as Jackman with those heels, around 6 cm (179 + 6 cm of heel). 187 cm should be right for him.
Daniel Ross said on 27/Jun/16
He looked 6'2 in x-men days of future past next to 6'2.75 Nick Hoult
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jun/16

Looks 188/189cm range in his earlier movies if anything...
