Hoping Rob meet Jim one day and pull him up to 6'0. Can't see flat 182cm at all.

Looked significantly taller than Spacey in 21.

Don't think less than a solid 6ft

@Editor Rob,

Is 6ft flat possible for Jim?

In some pics, he does look a strong 6ft rather than a weak one!

Do you agree Rob?

he can look similar to Jim and a bit shorter. He certainly looks a tad over 5’11 next to Timothy and Ewan. he’s usually listed 5’11 on most sites, but i can definitely buy a solid 5’11” range. BTW do u think he might b worth adding?
Editor Rob: yeah he's worth adding, I'd have initially thought 181 was possible.

@celebheights 188 CM: I think he easily gives the impression of being taller than he is (I wouldn't question 186 CM the first time I saw him, which was in 21). However, if you realize that most of the co-actors in the show are all under 177 cm and that they all look taller than they are (one actor who is around 172 cm, i cant recall his name, looked around 178 cm without question in some scenes) and if you compare him with other 5 ' 11 and 6'0 ft. actors, it's easy to see he is most likely not taller than 6'0 ft (except possibly in morning) IMO.

I would say that he's not 6'2", but 5'11.75" is a bit low as well. He can give off a 186-187 CM impression in photos due to being slim, and because he has long legs. However, I think that 6'0.25" to maybe even 6'0.5" would be right on the money. There was maybe one actor in 21 (which is a movie that I would reccomendation) who was taller than him.
Celebheights 188 CM said on 24/Dec/14
@Nick 6-01 refers to 6'1", but that's more 185 CM.
Jay 184cm said on 29/Sep/14
This guy is hard to pin down. Always slouches at premieres. If he stood with good posture, 183cm wouldn't surprise me.
Nick said on 24/Apr/14
Maio: You can't really compare him with Tom Hanks based on those photos. Although, I'm pretty sure he's closer to 6'0 feet than he is to 5'11.
dmeyer said on 30/Dec/13
Gives 6'2 impression in movie tallest looking 182cm ever Robb could this guy be barely 7mm taller than me
Nick said on 27/Dec/13
His fake licence in the movie says 6-01. Is that the same as 6'1? Because 6'01 is just 183 m. However, Wentworth Miller had 5'10 on his licence in a movie, however, that doesn't mean he's that height in reality (more likely closer to 6'1).
Lenad said on 27/Dec/13
his licence scene in 21 says 6'1. I thought he did look close to it there. and when he stood next to kevin spacey.
Balrog said on 6/Nov/13
In 21 he stands next to Kevin Spacey and can look 3in taller than him. Spacey could be just 176cm but still Sturgess can pull off lookin 183 and even 184 next to him. What make you think he's under 6 foot Rob?
Dejavu said on 2/Nov/13
I wouldn't question 183 cm.
Dmeyer said on 26/Jan/13
Very Lanky CAN look 6'2 but is barely 6'0
Balrog said on 19/Jan/13
Yeah small head brings his stature. Near 6 feet.
balrog said on 5/Dec/12
After watching 21 I though this guy was like 6'2'', why he looks so tall in that movie?
Nick said on 13/Sep/12
Rampage, can you show me a picture where he looks 3in taller than Spacey? Because I can show you many where he does not. And I have seen the film 21 a few times. Also, if you compare him with a few 5'10.75 or 5.11 actors, there's usually max an inch in difference. Although, he does look 6'0 feet in most of his movies, but that's pretty common for people who's in the strong 182 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/12
Looked 3in taller than Spacey in 21. I doubt he's shorter than 6"0.
Nick said on 25/Aug/12
Rob, do you think Jim's lowest height could be 182 cm? I always thought he was 183-184 cm tall before, however, after seeing all these photos I'm starting to think that he might just be a little bit below 6 feet. Perhaps you've been discussing this earlier (before you had to remove all the old comments) - but what do you think?
[Editor Rob: yeah 182 I think could be very close...]
Jake: 1.82 m-- 1.83 m-- 1.84 m said on 13/Jun/12
He looked very close in height to Jimmy Kimmel, I guess 182 cm is possible for him Rob? Perhaps he's just below 6ft.
SAK said on 12/Feb/12
lol @ Colin Farrell's shoes here Click Here

I use to think he was 6ft,but i think he slightly shorter, maybe 181/5ft11
Cranberries said on 27/Jan/12
He's diagnosed with microcephaly, which gives him the illusion of tallness. 5'11" max.
klem said on 6/Nov/11
He looks tall in One day. Would be surprised if he is not 6-0 at least.
Kostas said on 14/Sep/11
Cranberries: i couldn't help but notice that he is leaning in every single picture you've posted...
Nikkster said on 22/Aug/11
@Cranberries He was taller than Joe Anderson in Across the universe who's listed as 5'11.
Cranberries (18m, 193cm) said on 20/Aug/11
Links fixed... Guess this site doesn't allow for double spacing anymore.

His posture looks worse than it is in the first one. The most he loses is an inch.
Cranberries (18m, 193cm) said on 19/Aug/11
He looks soooo small on Conan right now... Conan literally towered/dwarfed him as he walked on. Conan's head looks 3 times the size of Sturgess's; Sturgess's microcephaly makes him look taller.With 5'10.25" Ryan Kwanten, no significant height difference: Click Here to 5'7" Zach Snyder, looks 5'10-5'11" still: Click Here really do think Jim Sturgess is just a lanky, small-boned 5'11"; strong 5'11" at most. Also looks close in height to Colin Farrell in that Ed Harris slideshow.
Nikkster said on 11/Jul/11
@Truth Jones

Based on that picture, he might be around 5'11 3/4 - as it's probably 3 inches in difference between Jim and Ed on that pic. But still, they are not standing really straight, so it'd still be possible that Jim Sturgess is around 6'0ft / 6'0.5ft tall.
Truth Jones said on 24/Jun/11
No more than 5'11", Rob.
Click Here
He's not looking more than 2 inches taller than 5'9" Ed Harris in that picture. Footware shown.

Are you kidding me? He is slouching in that picture and easily looks three inches taller than Ed Harris

He looks taller than he actually is due to his long legs and small head... which perhaps looks small due to his choice of haircut.
SAK said on 8/Feb/11
He does look 6ft0, I am surprised his agency listed him as 5ft11, as usually they tend to upgrade
Nikkster said on 22/Jan/11
6.05 ft is the correct height.
Anonymous said on 21/Feb/09
I would not say he has a "super thin" build at do you deduce that Complex?
Complex said on 1/Nov/08
It's wierd cuz sometimes in 21 he's like identical height with Spacey and sometimes he has him by about 2-3 inches. I think Jim is more 5'11 though. He's got a super thin build giving a tallish impression...or maybe 6'0 morning height would sound correct.
Anonymous said on 27/Sep/08
Wow, this is the first time I've seen an upgrade on this site! Hooray!
Anonymous said on 23/Sep/08
Rob, do you reckon you should give this guy an upgrade, at least to 6'0" or a little over that?

[Editor Rob: maybe 6ft is closer yes.]
lucia said on 13/Sep/08
well, he looks like he could be 6'1 to me, so I don't think the driver's licence is lying lol
Anonymous said on 11/Sep/08
Yes, I noticed that as well lucia. Do you think it's because he's 6'1" in reality too?
lucia said on 3/Sep/08
Just watched 21 again and noticed that his character has 6'1 on his fake driver's licence

I thought he was at least 6'2". He towers over Bosworth in 21.
Mr. R said on 12/Aug/08

when did you go to France? Was it for love?

mr r i live in france now ,but i will steel send you an email
Billy said on 6/Aug/08
I think he may wear lifts to surpass the "tall" mark of 6ft1 from time to time.. I agree with the current estimate
Complex said on 4/Aug/08
I'd say anywhere from 5'10 to 5'11.5 would be believable, 6'0 max though, he really didn't seem much taller than Spacey in '21' and in some shots seemed the same height as Spacey. Never 6'2, not at all, I think he's more between 5'10 and 5'11. He's rake thin though, one day it'll be clear to everyone that thin people naturally look alot taller than they really are!
nate said on 4/Aug/08
tall guy. anywhere between 6' and 6'2. rob can you upgrade him to 6'? cos most of the comments make it apparent that he's at least 6'.
Mr. R said on 4/Aug/08
dmeyer, send me an email and let me know how to get in touch with you. Send it to Thanks!
dmeyer said on 3/Aug/08
his built can make him look 6 ft 2
Antron said on 2/Aug/08
Yeah lucia, Sarah is sorely mistaken. This guy is no shorter than 5'11''
lucia said on 29/Jul/08
sorry, but no way he's only 5'9

the guy looks at least a solid 6'
sarah said on 29/Jul/08
not that tall at all in person.. 5'8-5'9 at best
Ed(1) said on 25/Jul/08
The weird thing is he gives of the impression of being a lot taller, and if I had to guess I'd have said 6ft2. I'm really shocked to see he's only 5ft11.75, especially considering how tall he looked in Across the Universe. In 21 he looks anywhere between the same height as Kevin Spacey(5ft9.75), and a good 2 inches or more taller. His stringbean physique just adds to the effect I guess!
MD said on 10/Jul/08
In "21" sometime he looked 6'0", but sometimes he barely looked taller than Kevin Spacey, so I'm not convinced like so many other's that he's a solid 6'0".
Mr Money said on 9/Jul/08
Its funny because he looked 2 inches taller then Spacey then 1-2 inches shorter then Fishburne.
6footkate said on 9/Jul/08
he deff looks 6'
Anonymous said on 7/Jul/08
Rob, do you reckon an upgrade is needed for this guy?
lucia said on 7/Jul/08
Beautiful, beautiful man.
I'd say he looks between 6' and 6'1

Honestly Jess, so true! I'm totally in love with this lovely man!

he's the only guy I lust after besides my boyfriend... man. He looks pretty tall. I thought maybe 6 ft.
sprint84 said on 2/Jul/08
At some publicity events for "21", he looked slightly taller than 6' Laurence Fishburne. Give him about 6'0.5", maybe 6'1".
Brah said on 27/Jun/08
In "21", he was usually a good 2 inches taller than Kevin Spacey. Though in some scenes, they looked about the same height for some reason.
Anonymous said on 27/Jun/08
Ah, finally Sturgess has been added, but, not even a full 6 feet? I find that quite hard to believe. He towered over all in "Across the Universe" (including the 5'11" Joe Anderson), so I find 5'11.75" a bit low. Rob, surely he is at least 6', if not 6'1"?
