Taron is 5'9. And he looks 2.5 inches taller I'd say, 5'6.5. He looked more than 3 inches shorter than 5'10 Daniel Craig in Defiance.

he looks 3 inches shorter than Taron here 5ft 7 and 5ft 10 looks accurate

Was on a tv show with him. Extremely small in person; diminutive. Tough to say as I’m 190, but he’s about five five.

He cant be 5'7 maybe 169

watching the series turn, i was struck by how short he looks compared to some of the actresses he is acting alongside so i came on the net to find out how tall he is.

he is listed as 5'7" but there is no way that is even close to accurate.

look at the photo above with jamie standing next to taron egerton. this is a photo without an angle that shows their clear relative height. taron's height is listed as 5'9" but in this photo jamie bell is without a doubt at least 3 or even 4 inches shorter.

either taron egerton is taller than the 5'9" he claims to be or jamie bell is far shorter than he admits.

With James McAvoy he does look almost the same, but I think James might be just a bit taller. I would guess Jamie is 169cm.

Do you think he has bad posture sometimes? He can look a tad less than this listing standing next to Daniel Craig.
Editor Rob
Like tom Holland, they both could look a weak 5ft 7 at times.

I have only just found out that Jamie is married to actress Kate Mara. At 5ft2, and being 5" below Jamie's 5ft7, you could say that it's an ideal pairing in the height department as well as everything else, and they have one child together - so far!

By the way, it's time to say:

πŸŽπŸŽˆπŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰ Happy Birthday Jamie! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸŽ

It's Jamie's 34th Birthday today, so here's wishing him a wonderful day with his family and friends.

5ft7. πŸ˜„πŸ»πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦

Last night I saw the film I was talking about in my comment from June of last year, 'The Retreat'!

I must say that Jamie looked taller than 5ft7 and is very powerfully built! I'd forgotten that he was only 5ft7, and based on last night's viewing, I would have believed 5ft9+ for him! Camera angles were probably partly responsible, as was the fact that he looked huge next to Thandie Newton! Cillian Murphy, the other main male star in this film, has a well-proportioned body, and also could pass for taller. I think he is about the same height or maybe an inch taller than Jamie, but in this film, you would never have guessed that any of the roles were played by stars of below-average height. They worked well together because they are all about the same amount below average, and then there is the tiny little additional fact that the film is very tense throughout - and well worth checking out!

I give Jamie 5ft7.
JJL29 said on 18/Mar/18
Is 5ft 6.75 possible for him?
Editor Rob
It's not exactly impossible for him. But 5ft 6.5 is maybe just too low...5ft 7 though is ok for him.
Big_S said on 21/Jan/18
He and Tom Holland are brothers half an inch apart. He could have played Spiderman too. So nice to think of a short successful older brother like guy. Oscar Isaac falls under the same category but clearly gives the awesome older boss vibes.
ALEXANDRE ALVES BR said on 7/Jan/18
@morris 165 cms is a good height for a female
ALEXANDRE ALVES BR said on 24/Dec/17
He seems to be more than 5'7 "... any chance of him being 171 rob ???
Editor Rob
would say, sometimes he can pull off - like his fellow Brit James McAvoy - a solid 5ft 7 range, maybe a nibble over it.
MAD SAM said on 15/Dec/17
170 cm exactly
ALEXANDRE ALVES BR said on 29/Nov/17
I think he's more like 5'7.5 ... I think he's 171 in my eyes ...
ALEXANDRE ALVES BR said on 23/Nov/17
He seems very comfortable with his height ...I think this paranoia with height applies more with famous... as it was with Robert Conrad who was only called short when arriving in Hollywood.
Editor Rob
when you become famous, suddenly the interest and opinions in all aspects of your life increase dramatically.

With celebrity, their image is part of their earnings, so it's understandable why some have lied a bit, to project a taller impression to the public.

Good liars make great actors.
Bobby said on 26/Aug/17
Honestly he looks 5'9, he's got good proportions.
Junior said on 14/Aug/17
Look like an older version of Tom Holland. 5'7 tops for sure.
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Jun/17
As soon as I read his own description of himself (above), I realised that yes, I was looking at the right actor of quite a few with 'Bell' as a surname, when I noticed his 'slightly jug ears'!
I also took in that he was around the same height as Cillian Murphy - I am watching the film 'The Retreat' - and that there is a marked difference between him and Thandie Newton, 5ft3 tops.
I like his humour, calling himself a 'strapping 5ft7 with slightly...' (Well you know the rest!)
It would appear Jamie is open about his height, and why shouldn't he be? Neither does he grow his hair over his ears! He has accepted himself, and maybe there is a lesson there for all of us - to accept ourselves too!
Jamie gets his strapping 5ft7 then, and he can have a pint for his blatent honesty! 🍺
Morris said on 10/Jun/17
Together Mara he seems 165-168 cm tall. However imho it is a normal height. Tall people think that all people under their height are tiny however normal height is between low and high values. The average world height is 165 cm.
Johnny said on 16/Apr/17
@Rob do you think he will measure taller than Big G?
Editor Rob
Johnny, yes he would measure taller I'm certain, although it's not that much...in photos you might not notice any difference.
Redwing said on 20/Mar/17
He reminds me of Tom Holland in the way that Thomas Jane reminds me of Christopher lambert not really subtle differences between them physcially but actually quite noticeable
mande2013 said on 23/Feb/17
To be fair, he and McAvoy looked the EXACT same height in the movie Filth. So perhaps he is the 5'7 after all.
S.J.H said on 17/Jan/17
Jamie Bell had a young doppelganger with same body build, same height name Tom Holland the next big star of Amazing spiderman. Lol reminds me of justin bieber and paul wesley how well they look alike.

Jamie bell, with 5'2 kate Mara walking barefoot on the beach with various angles, Jamie doesn't look a full 5 inches taller than her. 5'6.5 is probably more realistic.
Pablo said on 19/Jun/16
Jamie is 167/168 he looked shorter than Leslie Odom Jr (who's listed at 5'7.5) in a photo posted on Twitter

Far too short to be bond !
OKL said on 4/Mar/16
Rob , he is seem 5'6 , I think you list him taller because he has good proportion.

The Thing in Fantastic Four 2015 is
HEIGHT:6'8
WEIGHT:545LBS.
The power of C.G.I.:He wore a tracking suit and stilts to match the height and eye-line of The Thing.
A 5'7 guy who has the face of a fourteen year old boy can look like Monster Hero.
Balrog said on 9/Aug/15
He seems a legit 5'7'' guy to me.
Rodawg said on 7/Aug/15
Seriously doubt this guy is five seven based on the pictures down below. I think 5'5.5-5'6 is the most likely range. Especially if MD is correct and thinks that Jordan is only 5'10.
MD said on 22/Jun/15
With 5'10.5" Michael B. Jordan and 6'0" Miles Teller:

A few things about the first two photos...

Michael seems - as usual - to have better posture than just about everyone else. That said, he doesn't have a footwear advantage against any of them. And, quite frankly, I've been arguing for some time that they are both very slightly over listed, Michael closer to 5'10" and Teller not quite 6'0" (maybe more 181 or 182). As for what Jamie looks next to them, I'll leave it for you all to decide.
mande2013 said on 20/Jun/15
Pigs will fly before we see Tom Cruise giving such an impression next to a 5'10 guy in a red carpet picture.
mande2013 said on 20/Jun/15
Yea, he actually is looking 5'6 range with Daniel Craig, like Mathieu Amalric.
Stehen said on 26/Mar/15
5'6 rob ?

If Jonah hill is 5'6.25 than so is Jamie bell. Jamie definitely needs a downgrade
Realist said on 5/Sep/14
@unknown Bro Simon Pegg is 5'8.75 thus almost 5'9. So i think u r right about the difference but not the estimate 5'6.75 for Bell is right. Nick Frost is more 171 in my opinion. Strong 5'7 range 5'7.25.
unknown said on 4/Sep/14
5'8 Simon Pegg has about 2 inches on him in these photos, so 5'6 for Bell perhaps instead of 5'7? Even 5'7 Nick Frost on the photos look taller than him!

Realist said on 29/Jul/14
Rob 5'6.75-5'7 sure thing. But he does have a wide-ish body, i think his shoulders are broad. But he is really underweight and thus seems narrower than he actually is. Could i be right ? Could possibly guess his shoulder width -40 maybe ? Weight 60 kgs before The "Thing"?
edguy282 said on 21/Jul/14
Just read in Entertainment Weekly Jamie claiming "5-8." He said the CGI transformation of him into The Thing on the new Fantastic Four reboot would instead make him "6-8." I think he's a slightly less than 5-8 and probably more like 171cm.
strong. said on 16/Jul/14
strong 5'7, possibly 171 cm?
Realist said on 24/Feb/14
Rob, take my words back, Craig looks as tall as Leiv Schreiber in the particular pic i referred to. Schreiber actually is atleast 10 cm more than Craig.He was wearing lifts. 5'7 correct.
Realist said on 3/Feb/14
He looks 5'6 with Daniel Craig. I am 175 and my friend is 183 there is much less of a difference between us.
mp said on 30/Jan/12
Lol,Jamie Bell looks 5'5 in comparison with Daniel Craig!

He looks that height beside steven spielberg
Ted said on 20/Nov/11
Or maybe the other actors lie about their height. No way Tom Cruise is 5'7".
Maximus Meridius said on 6/Nov/11
Rob should he be upgraded to 5ft 7.75in since Tom Cruise is that height Jamie Bell 5ft 7in flat at night and 5ft 7.75in flat during the morning i reckon Jamie Bell is near 5ft 8in barefoot than 5ft 7in barefoot.
Editor Rob
5ft 7 for bell is perfectly reasonable, it's what he says and looks I think.
Anonymous1 said on 31/Aug/11
Click Here i think this pic show clearly the 5 feet 7 in
Maximus Meridius said on 11/Aug/11
Rob does he look taller like 5ft 9in due to his slim build even against tall actors he never looks short a 5ft 7in guy never looks short next to tall guys and average height guys.
Editor Rob
on his own, he could probably look taller than 5ft 7, he doesn't hae a big head or anything and is slim.
Sam said on 4/Aug/11
man, there are ridiculous claims on Channing Tatum's page saying he is only 5'10 and there are ridiculous claims on Jamie's page saying he might even be 5'10. According to some people, they're the same size...
gogo said on 9/May/11
Click Here looks about the same with 5'9.5 tahar rahim with converse like shoes against boots
he must be 5'10 or something
Macy said on 18/Feb/11
He looks taller than 5'7'. But then again, that might just be because he's got great "stage" presence.
Yourstruly said on 28/Nov/10
You should see Jamie Bell in his latest movie - Eagle. He has put on a lot of upper body muscle and looks pretty ripped. I know he is listed as 5'7" but in some of his movies he looks taller(5'9") up against tall actors like Hayden Christiansen and medium-tall Daniel Craig. Maybe it is lifts or he has continued to grow into his early 20s.
Fred said on 23/Jun/09
Hi! I speak French, grieved for translation. Jamie is going to play the role of Tintin, adapted by Spielberg, and I find that he is too big to play this figure. For me, Tintin measures 165 cm maximum. And on the contrary, other actors are too small for jouer:Haddock, Thomson ......
aijju said on 10/Dec/08
yeah, i think he' somewhere aroung 170-173 cm.
Minimum said on 27/Nov/08
Maybe 173 or 74cm.
