How tall is Josh Hartnett

Josh Hartnett's Height

6ft 2 ¾ (189.9 cm)

American actor best known for roles in films such as Pearl Harbour, Blackhawk Down, Lucky Number Slevin, The Faculty, Hollywood Homicide and TV series Penny Dreadful. He once commented "I was up for The Postman, and I read for it a couple times, but the casting lady told me I was too tall for the part -- taller than Kevin Costner!". Once on Jonathan Ross he was asked his measurements and Josh gave his height and weight as "Six Three, 185 pounds".

[If you could change one thing about yourself]
Immediately what comes to mind is if I could be a little bit taller. I'm six foot three but, I don't know, I always thought if I was two inches taller, I could play basketball much much better. I could dunk, I can't really dunk. I want to be able dunk. 6'3 is a good height, but two more inches would be great.
-- Irish Independent, 2014
I don’t feel like I need to hide any more. I used to think I needed to protect my anonymity, so I only went to places with my friends and ignored people I didn’t know. But that was a dead-end road because it’s pretty narcissistic. So I’ve gone in the other direction. My theory is if they get aggressive, I’m 6ft 3in and I’m not small. I would be much more afraid of being famous if I were shorter and more vulnerable.

He and his wife are pretty much the equivalents of each others heights, respectively.

Average guess is 6’3. Maybe time for an upgrade.

Here's another pic where Josh is standing better: Click Here Still, I have a hard time believing he's taller than Justin, let alone half an inch taller! As I've said before, 6'2.75 is too much for him.
Editor Rob
I don't think he looks as low as 6ft 2, albeit he does with Justin! 6ft 2.5 with other actors still looks arguable.
Andrea said on 14/Aug/22
Half an inch taller than Hartley, Rob?? Click Here
Let me guess: "Josh maybe is slouching a bit, has less footwear, Justin can sometimes look a 6'2.5 guy, it is arguable there isn't much between them." 🙂
Editor Rob
Can look 6ft 1.5 there.

6 pies 2 ¾?? really?
David Tang said on 1/Sep/21
hey rob i think josh should get a boost. with matthew lillard, he never looked more than 1/2 an inch shorter than him. lillard is a legit 6'3.5. by that logic, you should give josh the boost. he is at least 6'3 flat. also wih ben affleck, he looked 5'8 inch taller than him. so josh deserves a boost in my faithful opinion.
David Tang said on 1/Sep/21
tall guy. wakes up 6'4
David Tang said on 28/Aug/21
David Tang said on 6/Aug/21
rob do you reckon he wakes up 6'3.5?
Editor Rob
yeah I would not be surprised if at least around that mark.
David Tang said on 23/Jul/21
rob couldn't you give him the full 6'3
David Tang said on 7/Jul/21
6'3.5. ben affleck is 6'3.5 so he is 6'3.5
John 5'8 said on 23/May/21
I'd say he's full 6'3 in his 20s when out of bed and current is probably 6'2 range.
RJT said on 9/May/21
Didn't look that tall in the "Wrath of man" movie with Statham

winkler91 said on 24/Nov/20
I think 190cm is correct.

I am myself:
190,8 out of bed (7am)
I hold the 190cm only like 30min - 1hour
I measure 189,2 at (12am)
And in afternoon I fall a bit below 189 and end up being 188cm flat on a very active day.
(187,8 if really hard)

I claim 189cm as this is my honest height.
6'2 1/2 or 6'2.4


Which height are you refering to above Rob? Lunch time, afternoon?
Andrea said on 21/Nov/20
I totally agree about that, but then again, Wade can look 6'3.5-6'4, assuming that Carney is 6'...
Maybe 6'2.5-6'2.75 is like 6'3.75 for Wade, a early measurement, but more 6'2-6'2.5 at his low.
He doesn't look over that with Cumberbatch: Click Here
Editor Rob
he could be 6ft 2.5 with cumberbatch too.
Andrea said on 20/Nov/20
Rob, he virtually looks at least an inch shorter than Wade (beside Carney) and at most 3 inches taller than Cumberbatch. If anything, 6'2-6'2.5 looks much more likely than anything over. Maybe just give him 6'2.5?
Editor Rob
with Reeve he can look 6ft 2.5-2.75 range I feel, assuming Carney is near enough 6ft
RJT said on 10/Sep/20
Doesn't have tall proportion unlike Rio Ferdinand or Sacha Baron Cohen, even though their listed height is only 1/4" apart.

IMO 6'2.75" is Hartnett tallest at afternoon, and he will dip to 6'2.5" range at evening, similar to me. Similarly don't you think Routh/Welling can be the guys who can be full 6'2.75" afternoon but dip to 6'2.5" at night?
RJT said on 14/Aug/20
Rob, can you tell 6'2.75 afternoon guy with 6'3 afternoon guy in person? You dont have pic together with 6'2.75 guy, only with 6'2.5 or 6'3 guys.

And if some guy drops to 6'2.5-6.2 5/8 at night, would you consider them to be 6'2.5 or 6'2.75?
Editor Rob
Of course it's very hard to spot 1/4 inches.

Sometimes a 1/4 or 3/4 listing is a best estimate to cover a range I think they can look.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Aug/20
Some camera angle deceiving Affleck to be fraction lower than Harnett in Pearl Harbour, but overall look at them in that movie is more like 3/4 inch. I still felt solid 190cm on Harnett and Affleck 6'2.

Kebapsever said on 12/Jul/20
Solid 6’3 definitely not under it.
Canson said on 14/May/20
No way to tell without looking at footwear in either of those pictures
Jam Cherry said on 11/May/20
He has a physique of 6’3” posture though isn’t that great ild say about 189.5 cm
Canson said on 18/Apr/20
@Junior: I don’t disagree with you. That’s a great height there. I’d say it all comes down to the individual. Universally it’s probably somewhere between 6’2-6’3 for a male If talking a very tall height. All around 6’0-6’2 range. For me personally, I like the flat 6’4 or 6’3 7/8 afternoon height. I mention that 1/8” under only because it allows me to get to a flat 6’4 faster during the day but 1/8” only constitutes a small almost immeasurable amount under 6’4”. I actually consider someone that size (1/8” under their given mark in the afternoon/ evening) to be a legit 6’2, 6’3, 6’4 etc. at that stage a guy who is 6’3 7/8 would measure 6’4 at lunchtime.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/Apr/20
@Dream @Canson

Atually not to lie about overall i feel like totally voting a real 6'2 3/4 to be the most perfect height for all male on earth no matter what ethnicity.
Dream said on 5/Apr/20

I agree. Truthfully, I also feel most people in real life aren't aware of how tall 6'1", 6'2", or even 6'3" really is, let alone 6'4" or even 6'5". They're much more rarer in real life, than people say on the internet.

Heck, from my persective of view in person, Tom Welling looks easily strong tall. Because of his high level chin, people would think he's 6'4". That really shows how tall 6'2.5" is in real life. Charles Martinet, more so, even with his low leveled chin.
Canson said on 4/Apr/20
Dream said on 2/Apr/20
The irony:

- 6'2.5"-6'2.75" Josh Hartnett wants to be 6'5".

- 6'5.5" range Bo Burnham wants to be 6'1"-6'2".

@Dream: I’ve always said that greed is a problem when it comes to height. People don’t realize they have it good at a normal height and then when they get just outside of that range it all changes. I’m only probably 3cm or so shorter than Bo and I echo those sentiments. I would rather be 6’1 or 6’2 over 6’5.5” too. 6’5” flat is my cutoff for ideal in my book but quite frankly I would rather be not be anymore than my current 193-194. Bo may see it differently if he were my height or if he were even just a bit taller than me say 195cm. But that extra bit over 6’5 to get him to around 196.5-197cm is what makes the difference in his opinion I bet.

Agree with Viper on this one
Nearly 180cm guy said on 8/Nov/19
Well, 6'2.5" looks too low for this guy. Sometimes I could even see a full 6'3" for him. This year, Hartnett met Benedict Cumberbatch: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Hartnett looks nearly four inches taller than Cumberbatch. You met Benedict in pesron, so I can't imagine him under 181 cm but he really makes Hartnett look 6'3". Rob, is full 6'3" still possible estimate for Hartnett?
Editor Rob
Well anywhere between 6ft 2.5 to 3 could have a greater chance than 6ft 2 up to 2.5
viper said on 2/Nov/19
A downgrade to 6-2.5 is way more realistic
viper said on 31/Oct/19
This is too much.

No taller than 6-2

This underrated actor rather looks more like strong 6ft 2 than 6ft 3 he claimed... Little more than solid 6ft 2 person whom I do know is my acquaintance... He is more like 188 aka 6ft 2 quarter range that I can see him of......

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Jul/19
Every tall guys from 6'0-6'4 wanted to be 6'5. Looks like a good height nowadays is 6'5 not 6'2-6'3 anymore. I wouldn't go under 6'2 5/8 the worst for Hartnett and the highest he can look near 6'3.
Alex 6'3.25 said on 6/Jul/19
It's more likely a strong 6'2 than a 6'3 for him
Dejavu said on 6/Jul/19
He looked around 3 inches taller than Benedict Cumberbatch. Since Benedict is around 181cm, I think 6’2-6’3 is a fair height
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 29/Apr/19
Maybe Rob should consider a 6'2 7/8 (190.2) listing. More i look Josh work i hardly see him under 190cm.

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Jun/18

Funny how google has Affleck at 6’4 and Hartnett at 6’3 🤔

Truth is Affleck is not over 6'2 and Harnett is definitely weak 6'3 but visibly taller than Affleck.
Tarinator 6'1.75 said on 10/Jan/18
Would probably edge me out by an inch or maybe a half more as I linger around 6’1.5” throughout the day. Looks every bit of 190 or a weak 6’3”. I think it would be safe to say 6’3” as he is about that height. Had 4.5 inches on Tamsin Egerton in most photos. But I would assume she has footwear advantage? She said she likes wearing flats so he must be 6’2” at least if he has less footwear. Brandon Routh would probably be shorter than Josh or maybe the same height I would suppose.
Editor Rob
you posted another comment which I'll reply here.

Please remember comments should be on the topic of the actor, sometimes there is a little leeway, but if a visitor comes onto say Beyonce's page and asks me how tall they look...I don't think visitors want to read about a random visitor's height, so it's best on the general page. 🙂

Next to Harrison Ford (180/181cm nowadays) in Hollywood Homicide looked around 188-189 not more.

Could be exactly 189cm barefoot.
Balrog said on 30/Jul/17
In Lucky Number Slevin he was in flip flops and looked the same if not taller than Morgan Freeman in dress shoes

Looked pretty thin and lanky in 90s movies.
Umberto said on 16/May/17
I met him in 2010 in Italy and he looked a legit 6'3. He looks almost identically in real life as he does on camera tho.
shiva 181 cms said on 30/Apr/17
189-190cms for Hartnett and 187-188 for Affleck
josh jeffords said on 5/Jan/17
dude is a legit tall guy hes 6 2 with bad posture.. so weak 6 3 upright on rare occasion he stand up.
I think like lillard he often hunches and such to look more like others instead of towering everyone.
He had several inches on famke jansen who is a very tall woman and she was in heels.
Measured up good against eric bana i think he edged him by the listed maybe even a full 6 3 on a good day.
Good actor too just play a lot of goofy teeny roles.
Balrog said on 1/Jan/17
Glad to see you upgraded him, Rob. I also thought he was a solid 189cm or perhaps more. He hasn't great posture but when he stands well he looks really close to a full 6'3"

There's no more than a cm between this guy and Ben Affleck.

He looked 1.5 inches on Timothy Dalton.
Verona Rios said on 28/Feb/16
I think 5´8 or 5´9 is a fair figure for him due to the fact that next to Hartnett or Jai Courtney, who both are more than 6´0 he doesn´t look that tiny.

This listing is perfect 189 was to short and 191 is a little to mutch
Tunman said on 23/Oct/15
So Affleck at 188-9 and Hartnett at 189-90?That seems fine.1 cm difference could be spotted but they look close enough indeed.Just having watched Pearl Harbour,it's hard to tell the difference though.A fraction for Josh is very possible but I think they need to be measured to tell that.
Davej said on 22/Oct/15
If you subtract 1inch, that would be closer to his real height.
Dejavu said on 7/Oct/15
Rob, who do you think is taller? Josh Hartnett or Tom Welling?
Editor Rob
Welling has overall a better posture, although I think if you actually measured them they might be within a small amount of each other.
Andrea said on 8/Sep/15
Rob, did you decide to give him a fraction more? He actually can look near 190 with some of those guys you recently met but he also can look not over 6'2 at times! I remember with Jimmy Fallon and Charlize Theron he struggled to look a full 6'2...
Editor Rob
I think he edged out someone like affleck and seeing him with the other guys in penny dreadful, I think he can pass for 189-90 zone.
joe @@ said on 1/Sep/15
Rob, it looks like the dax shepard and Liev Schreiber
184.3cm (Night) said on 24/Aug/15
Yeah Hartnett is the taller man, Affleck doesnt look much more than 6'2 nowadays though. Maybe because of bad posture? I wonder if Jonathan Ross remembers all those claims? He probably has a good idea by now how various heights look.

I'd say around 6'2"-6'3". In Halloween H20, him and Chris Durand (Michael Myers) who is 6'2" stand eye to eye briefly in the movie and look nearly even in height.

He had 3 inches on jimmy fallon
Vicki said on 30/Jun/15
Josh Hartnett is all of his 6ft 2.5in. tall!! Sounds like some guys are simply jealous as well they should be. He is not only tall but built with the perfect body in my eyes and yes he looks like a cuddly teddy bear. I would love to have one just like him! Who cares about a cm or two in height?!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/May/15
Ben Affleck - 6ft2¼(189cm)
Josh Hartnett - 6ft2¾(190cm)

Looking at Pearl Harbour this looks about right. They're close but Hartnett just tops Affleck.
184.3cm said on 14/Mar/15
I would say more 190cm (6'2.75) he can look a 6'3 guy alot. Been watching Penny Dreadful and he looks really tall. Could even be his own claim since his posture isnt exactly amazing.

Looks like a solid 6-3, had about an inch on Ben Affleck in Pearl Harbor, of course that was 14 years ago, its been that long. He was once a front runner for Superman, would have been a horrible choice to play the role. He is just too boyish to play the character. His face is too baby looking. A lot of people are too hung up on height when it comes to playing characters like Superman, Henry Cavill is a bit under 6-1, but is a perfect Superman despite being a medium tall man, he has the chiseled looks, physique, and charisma to pull it off and make people believe that he could be the Man of Steel, in fact, he made people forget about his much taller predecessor Brandon Routh.

Timothy dalton def not 6ft 1 1/2. I was talking to him and thinking awww he's shorter in real life like most actors. Josh hartnett lives on my road now so I'll see if I can stand beside him in coffee shop! I'm 5ft 9
badboy said on 30/Oct/14
He was barely equal to Morgan freeman who is 6.2 in lucky number slevin & sometimes even shorter so that proves that he is 6.2 max or out of bed& probably 6'1.5 during daytime

Maybe 189cm at night? In the Faculty he easily looked 3 inches taller than Famke Janssen.

I would like to see Kevin Costner next to Josh. They would look pretty close in height. Kevin 6' 1/2. Josh 6'1.5. Maybe. Must cast them together. would be one awesome movie.
Nils said on 6/Sep/14
He always appeared really tall to me
6'2.5 is fine but 6'3 seems very likely to me, especially since he has
about an inch or more on Affleck who is also listed at 6'2.5
176,2Tunman said on 20/Aug/14
Definitely 6'2.5"he won't dip Under 189 even at his lowest.
Ben although similar could sometimes appear 1 cm shorter.
So Josh 6'2.5" and Ben 6'2.25"could be perfect.
Dejavu said on 12/Jul/14
190 6'2.75 could be a big possiblity

Legit 189cm, I could even see him as weak 6'3" guy but I think this listing is perfect.

legit 190cm guy
cole said on 27/Feb/14
He can pull off looking 190 cm. In Lucky Number Slevin - barefoot, he was still a little taller than 6'2ish Morgan Freeman in loafers. He also looks to edge 188-189 cm Ben Affleck ever so slightly as well. 6'2.5 is a good shout but 6'2.75 is just as possible imo.
Balrog said on 28/Dec/13
I bet Hartnett would edge out Kutcher.
Dejavu said on 29/Oct/13
I think 190 cm is a big possibility
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Sep/13
Ben Affleck - 6ft2-2.5
Josh Hartnett - 6ft2.5-3

Quite close
spainmen said on 14/Aug/13
hartnett claims 6'3 (190 cm) because probably he get measured 1 or 2 hours after getting out of bed so in my opinion at the afternoon he will be 189 cm 6ft 2.5 is the same as Affleck he claims 6feet 3.5 (192 cm) because he get measured at that height on the morning with shoes so he is 189 cm at the morning and 188 cm (solid 6 feet 2 inch ) so Affleck 188 cm and Hartnett 189 cm

Lorne said on 6/Aug/13
I agree he looks more a 6'3 guy than Affleck. Aflleck IS 189cm range, but I think 6ft2.25 might be closer. Hartnertt I believe really is a 190cm guy, look at him with 6ft2.25 Freeman(though maybe flat 6'2 by slevin) and Affleck, also he totally owned Bruce Willis, whom was still near peak. I really think Hartnett pulls off the 190cm look, like a Tom Welling. But waht's for sure is anything less than 189cm is a laugh.

He is about the same height as ben affleck in pearl harbour. I really couldn't see any difference between them. 6 foot 3. I remember hollywood homicide and he had a few inches on harrison ford who is close to 6 foot. He always looked like a 6 foot 3 guy more than ben affleck.
cole said on 26/Jul/13
6'2.5-3 range is fine for him. He's definitely not under 188 cm, and most likely 189 or 190 cm.
190-192 said on 30/Apr/13
I think he's the same height as me. Solid 6'3" in the morning and only nudging 6'3" at bedtime. As someone mentioned earlier, he looked abit taller than Morgan freeman in Lucky number slevin when he only was wearing flip-flops. And he was atleast 20cm taller than Shannyn Sossamon in 40 days and 40 days nights, and she's 170cm. He's got a long spine and slouches abit at times. He is over 190cm, nudging 6-3. He needs an upgrade.
Balrog said on 3/Apr/13
6'1'' for Hartnett is out of league. He's at least 6'2'' and has looked 6'3'' at times. The listing is perfect.
............. said on 24/Feb/13
yeah i saw him in that o movie...he was barely taller than henson and had about 5 inches of MIkai Pfiefer who is about 5'8...he lies so that he can get movie roles...but when the fact are out he's about 6'1...unles he uses his usual booster his boots....
davejvz said on 20/Feb/13
there are sites where he is listed at 6'1.
likes the thick soled boots.
185 makes sence, there are just to much photo's wich claims this.
Balrog said on 18/Feb/13
6'1''? This is a guy who looked taller than Morgan Freeman in flip flops. 189-190 cm for Hartnett.
Conti said on 9/Feb/13
I heard he wears 2" lifts that make 6'3 when they interview josh hartnett on tmz.I would say 6'1 solid.
John said on 7/Jan/13
I agree with this listing, however he is clearly taller than Affleck who is 6'2-6'2.25. I say Hartnett could be close to 6'3. He's probably pushing 6'3 until mid afternoon.

Tall guy, mostly looks 6'2-3.

"Josh Hartnett height: 6 ft 2.75 in (190cm)"

He's at least 6'2". But I think that 6'3" is only possible for his morning height. Rob's listing of 6'2.5 is fair.

Comparing him to hartnett and freeman hé CAN look 6'2 alot but hé mostly looks 189cm
zero said on 11/Sep/12
As listed, clearly taller than Affleck, he's just giving his morning height. What doesn't match is the weight that he claims, he's pretty skinny, looks more 170-175 pounds.
Hob said on 2/Aug/12
so hartnett is possible 6'2. but over 6'2 is impossible. i had brothers both at 6'2.25 range they don seem any shorter than how josh hartnett apear on screen. ben affleck was at least 0.5inch shorter than hartnett.
ben 6'1.5
hartnett 6'2
carnegie said on 30/Jan/12

Chris said on 19/Jan/12

Where are the pics of Hartnett and Welling that makes you say that affirmation?

He can't be 6'1.5, he was taller than Morgan Freeman in dress shoes, and Hartnett was barely in flip flops. Freeman is 6'1.25 at least on these days.
steven said on 15/Jan/12
hartnett is 6'1.5 at best and 6'3 flat in shoe. tom welling is definitely taller than harnett by 0.75"-1"
Chris said on 4/Jan/12
Hartnett is taller than Affleck, Freeman and Bana. He's closer to 6'3 than 6'2. I think he's 6'2.75 (190 cms) like Tom Welling. Now, 185 pounds? He's to skinny to weigh that, looks to me a 170 pounds guy.
maio said on 19/Dec/11
6 ft 2.5 in/189 cm is right for him. Ben Affleck is 6 ft 2 in/188 cm.
Silent d said on 11/Nov/11
He was at least 2inches + taller than allegedly 6 foot harrison ford in hollywood homicide. He was pretty much same height with 189cm ben affleck. 189cm. He towered over 160cm scarlett.

aaron eckhart claim 5'11 but reality to be 5'10 top. harnett can pass 6'2 agree with dejavu,chameleon. he had the 188 frame. he probablt state 6'3 in shoe hollywood style.
DejaVu said on 20/Oct/11
Hartnett is at least 188cm. He has 4 inches on Aaron Eckhart who I don't see under 5'10.
LAN Jiao said on 18/Oct/11
viper, i can be wrong sometimes. but put a compare on ben and hartnett looks 3cm diffrent on height. josh is max 6'2 and ben is max 6'1 due to comparison to 5'11 uma thurman ben is no more 6cm taller than uma while ben had footwear advantage on uma wore flats in Paycheck. i would rule 6'0.75 for ben as well.
Chameleon said on 12/Oct/11
Yeah Ben is not under 6'1, so Hartnett is 188cm range.

He always seemed 190 cm to me, that's about 6' 2.8" He looks taller in the movies, but I wouldn't give him less than 6'2" in real life. Speaking of which, why would a tall guy lie that much about his height? Tall people don't add much, maybe half an inch or something. He's quite tall anyway.

190cm for Hartnett might look better. He looks the same height if not a bit taller than 189cm Ben Affleck. And dont start saying that Affleck is only 6'1 because he seriously strikes me as being at least 6'2. And he looks it to
Lenad said on 15/Jun/11
Solid 190cm might be closer. Didnt look shorter than 189cm Ben Affleck. Probably if anything was a bit taller
Eli said on 7/Jun/11
I'm rly not convinced .Im a huge fan of josh and i've watched like 80% of his filmography.He's got a rly thin body frame(muscular arms though)and looks:

6ft2 next to 5ft8 david bowie (August)
6ft2 next to 6ft1 Eric Bana(black hawk down)
6ft1 in many scenes next to 6ft2 Samuel Jackson (Ressurecting the champ)
6ft1.5 next to 6ft1 Ben Afleck(Pearl Harbor)
6ft1 next to 6ft3 Matthew Lillard(wicker park)
a couple of inches shortera than lefit 6ft2 Morgan Freeman(lucky number slevin)
6ft1 next to 5ft11 Bruce Willis(lucky number slevin)
6ft0.5 with 5ft11.75 tony blair
6ft1 with 6ft4 steven fry
the two movies in which he appears rly tall are:
Black Dahlia(6ft2.5 next top 5ft10 aaron eckhart) and he also looked huge next to 6ft1.5 listed danny huston(i bet huston is much shorter cause josh looked 6ft6 next to him)on 30 days of night.
If you asked me ,a loyal fan of Josh bout his height,i'd say 186 barefoot night.I mean,i dont 6ft2.5(shoed height for sure).let alone 6ft3
thebad7 said on 17/May/11
Low key, underrated actor. 6'2 1/2" sounds right, but a flat 6'3" wouldn't surprise me, either. He's definitely taller than his PEARL HARBOR co-star Ben Affleck by about 1". If Affleck is a flat 6'2" (which I believe him to be), then Hartnett is at least 6'2 1/2". I think Hartnett could get away with saying 6'3".

Josh Hartnett's heights are:

Morning (out of bed)= 6'3.25" (1.91 m)
After 1,5-3 hrs= 6'2.85" (1.90 m)
After 5-10 hrs= 6'2.5" (1.89 m)

Given Hartnett's height is listed partly based on Glenn being 5'8", I'd strongly argue a downgrade should be on the cards..188-189cm. I think 189cm could be fair. Rob, how about it?

Clay even Scarlett isn't standing straight. I don't know if he's 6'1", but sure he looks 6'1" more than he looks 6'3". I've seen only once him looking taller than 6'2", with Matthew Lillard, he looked 6'2.5" or so. A part from this he always looked between 6'1" and 6'2", with Scarlett, with Bowie, with Samuel L.Jackson, with Williamson. Sometimes he looked even shorter, but might be a wrong picture (i.e. with William Lee Scott he looks barely 6'0"). All those pics are below. I think Hartnett is 6'1.5" or so, best chance he's 6'1" than 6'2.5", anything under 6'1" it's very difficult unless he wears elevator shoes, anything more than 6'3" is silly.

Then explain the 2 pics I've posted before and the one with Williamson and the one with Scarlett and a lot of other pics that shows he's not 6'3". It's not only one photo, there's plenty of photos in which he doesn't look either a full 6'2". And there isn't a single photo or clip in which he looks as tall as 6'3". Sometimes could look a full 6'2", but I think he's just a bit under that, maybe not a full inch. Could be 6'2". For sure he isn't 6'3"

@ Anonymous... draw a line from the top of Bowies head and u will see that Josh has 5 inches on him also look at their shoes it looks as if Davids shoes give him a slight advantage...6"3 it is for Josh Hartnett

Yeah but Bowie is clearly leaning a lot. And even drawing a line you see the top of David's head above Hartnett's eyebrows. He might have a little advantage in shoes, but he's slouching, while Hartnett's standing straight. If you're 6'3" a 5'9" guy would have the top of his head around the tip of your nose, definitely not at eyebrows level or even above it. Josh has never been 6'3" in his life.

I've said this several times on this page. And i agree with anonamouys. Josh is 6'1. Ther's a few sites with that listing. The best way to judge his height is in lucky nu slevin with mykelti williamsom. Williamsom is taller with the dress shoes on. So that means josh is 6'1. He likes to thicksoled shoes, that the 6'3 u see all the time.

i think Friend's photos below of Josh with Tony Blair is the most telling. If he were a true 6'2 + he would tower over him but he doesn't. he doesn't look any taller. Blair is 5'11-6'0. no taller than bush. not much
