Joshua Jackson's Height
6ft 1 (185.4 cm)
Canadian born Actor best known for roles in tv series Dawson's Creek and Fringe.
He did a Milk Advert where he's sitting in a boat and is using a witty Pacey-like manner saying: "I can't help it, women of all ages look up to me. Why? I'm 6 foot 2. Thanks in part to milk."

185cm is fair for Josh
TheBat said on 25/Sep/20
6’1” flat from what I can tell. He was in the running for Batman in Batman Begins before Christian Bale was cast.

Sometime i notice standing alone Joshua look nothing over 182cm.

I love your comments, viper.
I really can see 6'0.5-75" for a Joshua and 6'1-6'1.5" as height of Paul Walker there.
Shayz101 said on 9/May/20
Reddick 6.3 on Fringe good 2 inches taller
viper said on 24/Feb/20
Josh Jackson looked taller than Paul at times in the movie
viper said on 24/Feb/20
Paul Walker edged Joshua out when they stood back to back in the Skulls.
IMO Josh is at most 6-0.5 compared to
6-1 admitted Walker
TheBat said on 15/Dec/19
6'1" flat. He also almost played Batman in The Dark Knight Trilogy along with other actors like Jake Gyllenhaal, Henry Cavill, and Eion Bailey.

Joshua jackson's height Is 188 cm

@ Rob - How tall is the girl?
@ Mia - Well said! 👌😇
@ niki - Interesting!
I gave Diane 5ft 5.5, though she herself claimed to be 5ft 7
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Sep/19
I think Walker could still have made 6ft2. Not much under it
Nik said on 5/Sep/19
Most men look up to him too!
berta said on 30/Jul/19
he was a tiny fraction shorter than Paul walker. This listing is good. He legit 185 and Walker legit 186
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Apr/19
Lance Reddick look a very solid 1.5" on Joshua and sometimes there look to be 2". Taking more look i see a flat 185cm on him and Lance i still don't see he is under 189cm really not quite only his 6'2 claim or that extra 2.25" given to him. 6'0 7/8th is generous to him or the worst he is 6'0.75".
Jtm said on 8/Jan/19
constantly 2 inches shorter than lance reddick in fringe . i would give him 6'0 flat or 6'0.25 at the most.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Jan/19
At least a downgrade to 6'0.75" really not the kind of solid 6'1 like Eric Dane and Peter Krause could pull off.
MAD SAM said on 10/Jul/18
185.5 cm or 6’1” !
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Jun/18
My own generousity i will throw a 6'0 1/2" on him. Look more like 1.75-2" shorter than Lance Reddick.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/May/18
Walker is more like 187cm flat like Chris Pratt and Joshua is no way 185.4cm not even 185cm. Def full inch shorter than Walker. Both weak 6'2 and weak 6'1.
QM6'1QM said on 4/Apr/18
Joshua looks like a guy like Johnny Knoxville, maybe a little bit taller (6'0.75"), but certainly not a full 6'1. Anyway, in the movie "Skulls", Paul Walker was up half an inch (maybe 1.5 cm), which makes it 187 cm (absolute maximum), even if Joshua 6'1, which is not so in fact.
Joshua Jackson - 184.5-185 cm.
Paul Walker - 186-186.5 cm (maybe, 187 cm, absolute maximum), RIP.
Katherine said on 9/Feb/18
@berta Disagree. Walker was definitely taller, you can see it in The Skulls. An inch tops, but they were not the same height.
said on 12/Dec/17
Rob, which of these would you go for?
Editor Rob: over time I think I have went from more B-C to maybe nearer E
said on 8/Jun/17
Rob, you think still possible he could be 6'0.5 ? Lance reddick seem to look solid 4cm taller.
Editor Rob: close to 6ft 1 I still feel he will be.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/May/17
Taller than Van Der Beek
SHIVA182CMS said on 7/May/17
A SOLID 184CMS GUY 6'1 IS PUSHING IT
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Apr/17
berta said on 19/Apr/17
i belive this guy is 185,0 and paul walker was 186,6 something like that
Balrog said on 30/Jan/17
He generally looks under 6'1'', 6'0.5'' - 6'1'' is his range. Rob you think that claim is honest, knowing is from a commercial? I mean is more impressive if you say six two instead of six feet and half if you're trying to sell a milk to grew taller.
berta said on 27/Jan/17
he is one of the evidence that paul walker was no taller than 187 at best. they where pretty muthc the same height ore wlaker 1 cm taller .
Giorgi said on 1/Dec/16
Appearantly, when it comes to height, most adults can't count ;))
said on 15/Nov/16
Rob, i respect your height professional but are you sure Joshua Jackson is 6'1 with a good 5'10.75 John Noble? He look kind of 6'0 here
Editor Rob: sjh, on Fringe I think he could look nearer 2 inches taller, but then at times he doesn't quite look that.
S.J.H said on 22/Sep/16
There is no way john noble to 2" shorter than joshua jackson only when noble slouch in that show fringe but when noble stand well they were 4cm apart. Joshua is more like 6'0 and i start to believe lance reddick is only 6'2 since he look 2" on joshua most of time
Alex said on 4/Jul/16
He's more like 183 cm
Andrea said on 30/Apr/16
He looks no less than 4 (good) cms shorter than Lance... If Lance is only 6'2.25, this guy isn't over 6'0.5! Not a chance he's just 1in shorter ;)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Apr/16
I think this guy is really about 1in shorter than Reddick and not more...
gian92 said on 20/Dec/15
max 184 cm for him
Andrea said on 9/Sep/15
I wouldn't say Jensen is taller, based on that picture! And Jensen is noway 184, more around 182... Joshua, i can believe he'd be a bit taller than him, but certainly not a big 6'1! 184-185 is believable for him.
said on 8/Sep/15
Check this pic out Jensen 1.84m looks taller than Joshua
A6'2Guy said on 2/Jul/15
I feel 6'1.5" is fair for Jackson and I do believe Lance is taller than 6'2" flat, in Fringe he looked taller than a guy who claims 6'3" and in one of the later episodes they showed an ID card of Lance's character which showed him as being 6'4"... I see that as a bit of of a stretch but maybe Lance is actually more 6'2.75? He looked very close to 6'3" in Fringe and Jackson could look quite close 6'2", he definitely looked taller than a mere 6'1" flat for most part.
Andrea said on 25/Jun/15
With Lance at 6'2.25 now, i can believe he's 184-185, 6'0.75 at best for this guy and a good chance he's 6'0.5 at his low! 6'1 is possible only if measured just an hour out of bed! Also, Rob said he was maybe half an inch shorter than self-proclaimed 6'1 Paul Walker, so that matches...
Mike said on 23/Jun/15
6ft 1 max.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jun/15
I thought 186cm was closer to be perfectly honest.
S.J.H said on 6/Mar/15
6'0.5 much possible. 6'2 Lance reddick always look to edge him by solid 4cm
grizz said on 5/Feb/15
Wasn't he 186 until recently? If he really is 185,then Paul Walker deserves a downgrade to 187 or even 186. In Skulls,when they stood next to each other with same footwear,Walker edged out Jackson by half an inch tops.
said on 12/Oct/14
Come on, Rob. If you wanna be coherent dowgrade them or put Lance back at 6'2.5... If Lance is 6'2.5, i could buy Joshua being 6'0.75... 6'1 and 6'2 just dont make sense! Why arent you objective as you should be with certain people? With some people you give big benefits of doubt, with others you are quite "harsh"!
[Editor Rob: I'm going on the fact he's come out with 6ft 2 a couple of times and giving him what he claims, I think sure he can look 6ft 2.5 at times. Maybe the other people aren't quite as tall or don't have as good posture, or an authorative figure is photographed in a domineering fashion.]
Andrea said on 12/Oct/14
Are you really gonna base your guess on a photo with a guy who is over 7? Arnie certainly didn' look even 6'1 next to Wilt Chamberlain, but he still gets 6'1.5... The Rock, think what, didnt even look 6'2 with Barkley and Shaq... So, if you really are basing everything on just a couple photos, do change them too! How do you explain it is very rare to find someone taller than Lance in every show he plays?
said on 11/Oct/14
So you really intend to keep Joshua Jackson at 6'1 and Lance Reddick at 6'2? I thought you were more "open-mind", Rob. Seriously, you don't know what to say if you play the posture card once again... Lance has a good posture, but to me he looks a normal posture, he certainly isn't as military as Stephen Amell, Sly or Vin Diesel... There's noway there are only 3 cms! And the fact he claims 6'2 means really nothing! See Lee Pace, Jack Coleman, Geoff Stults,... He must throw some height off!
[Editor Rob: I don't know, with guys like Manganiello and Kareem I think he can look 6ft 2 more than 2.5 range]
said on 11/Oct/14
What kind of answer is that, Rob? Of course you should measure them, but its pretty cleare he can't be just an inch shorter, downgrade to 6'0.25 if you wanna keep Lance at 6'2 flat!
There are at least 4 solid cms between them... Or upgrade Lance to 6'2.75!
[Editor Rob: Lance generally has good posture on the show, maybe it helps enhance a difference that is 3-4cm to at times more. Yes you could say Joshua generally can look a weak 6ft 1 guy.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Oct/14
I thought 186cm was fair.
said on 10/Oct/14
Rob, you realize he can't be 6'1 flat if Lance is only 6'2? He can look anywhere between 1.5 and 2 good inches shorter than him in Fringe!!! Only a blind man would think there's only an inch between them!
[Editor Rob: it would be interesting to measure both of them!]
said on 10/Oct/14
So, nothing to do, uh? He can't be 186, noway, just look a couple of Fringe episodes to realize that! He's 6'0.25 at best!
[Editor Rob: well 6ft 1 would be likely the most.]
Andrea said on 10/Oct/14
Rob, downgrade him to 6'0.25, he's max that height next to Lance Reddick, noway he's 186, unless you don't see "heights"...
Astaroth said on 31/May/14
In Fringe he looks 6'1.5 almost all the time. 186cm minimum for him.
For some reason I can't stand this guy (face & acting mainly) but I have to admit his height is perfect and he does have very good proportions too.
Balrog said on 5/Mar/14
Chris said on 11/Jan/14
Saw him in downtown Vancouver one night. He was not 6' 2'', closer to 6' 0.5'' in the evening.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Dec/13
Around 186-187cm in Dawsons Creek. He was in some atrocious casino movie a few years ago with Bruce Willis where I thought he may have looked 6ft2. Haven't seen Fringe.
The late Paul Walker was 188cm, Balrog
Balrog said on 3/Oct/13
If Walker is 6'2" this guy isn't under 6'1.75".
But Walker at 185-186 and Jackson 184-185 would be better.
Jon said on 20/Aug/13
Can look as high as 185 cm, and as short as 182 i think his true height is 184 , he looks like a strong 6ft but is nowhere near a true and strong 6'2 like reddick
Elbaa said on 12/Jul/13
just started watching fringe and lance reddick really sometimes look so much bigger than him i mean as much as 3 inches sometimes. if reddick is 189 this guy is not over 184
KT said on 17/Apr/13
Downgrade? He was at 6'1.5 not long ago.
In the movie "The Skulls," he stood back to back with Paul Walker for an entire scene. They are the same exact height.
Arch Stanton said on 28/Mar/13
Looking at him with Katie Holmes he looks around 6'1".
Arch Stanton said on 28/Mar/13
I agree Lenad, he doesn't look it. I think he's more 6'0.5"-6'1", 185cm I'd guess, 186cm morning maybe. Another American claiming shoe height. I really think the 1-1.5 inch rule applies to a lot of American celebs.
Lenad said on 21/Feb/13
He doesnt look anywear near the 6'2 claims to me more like 6'0.5. I wouldnt go as low as 5ft11 but
Conti said on 20/Feb/13
Joshua isn't even 6'0,I would say around 5'11 solid.You should all know that James Van Der Beek is 5'10 solid.
Lenad said on 9/Feb/13
he doesnt look at all 6'2 to me in any pic ive seen. More like 6'1 max
Aragorn 5'11 said on 15/Jan/13
Rob, how tall do you think is Seth Gabel? I'd like to know your opinion.
Lo sgozzatore said on 13/Dec/12
Agree, in fact at first i thought 6'4 for Reddick wasnt impossible because he can look 2 good inches taller than Jackson! Reddick looks more 6'4 than many 6'4 guys listed on here
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 13/Dec/12
Not 186, he can only reach that mark in the morning, but he looks 184 max next to Reddick, I can clearly see almost 2 inches between them in Fringe.
Reddick however can be 189, he's the tallest 6'2 I've ever seen.
mId said on 18/Nov/12
Just wanted to point out that when he was on kimmel he pointed out that it was the lifts that made him taller than what kimmel thought he was. It could be that he wears lifts on the show fringe. I always thought he looked ~184 on dawsons creek.
Editor Rob said on 5/Nov/12
Maybe this listing is more a morning one, but a guess can never be right or wrong until a person is measured.
Aragorn 5'11 said on 5/Nov/12
This is insanity that you list Joshua Jackson at 6'1.5 and Lance Reddick at 6'2.25!!!!!!!!!!!! Is there not even a inch between them in your eyes???????!!!!!!!!! Okay, if you leave Lance Reddick at 6'2.25 then at-least downgrade Joshua Jackson to 6'1.25 NOT 6'1.5! There is DEFNITELY an inch in between them at the least . In the whole show Fringe, you will see my point clearly. They both have similar footwear on and Joshua Jackson has to look up to him as if there is over an inch in between them. There heads are in totally different places. Rob, you can't just ignore this! Either upgrade Lance Reddick to 6'2.5 ATLEAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OR downgrade Joshua Jackson to 6'1 or 6'1.25! Though you'll be slightly wrong even with that but ATLEAST it'll be closer to the truth.
said on 5/Nov/12
So you're saying he loose 1 inch from morning to evening? He really does look noticeably shorter than Reddick, no less than 1.5 inches!
[Editor Rob: he might be a weak 6ft 1 and lance a strong 6ft 2.
I'll tell you what, giving lance a strong 6ft 2 might be fairer, although in that remains movie I didn't think he looked a big 6ft 3 let alone 4 with grant.]
said on 5/Nov/12
Rob, both Joshua Jackson and Lance Reddick claim 6'2 but there is at least 1.5 inches between them! Downgrade Jackson immediately if you want to keep Reddick at only 6'2! This doesnt make any sense...
[Editor Rob: maybe jackson is more 6ft 1.5 morning, that would cover it.]
said on 4/Nov/12
Ok, then maybe he's a legit 6'2 and all the others 6'2 arent! Just looking at some photos with him, he towers over everyone. The fact he claimed that doesnt mean he isnt over it! Anyway, Joshua Jackson must be downgraded. He really looks at least 1-1.5 inches shorter than Reddick!
[Editor Rob: it is always possible he is taller and had rounded down, nothing is ever ruled out, but he seems a smart educated man. I think he can have a higher eyelevel at times, I'm sure in hollywood he looks 6ft 3-4 to people.]
said on 4/Nov/12
Yeah, keep ignore that! Everybody must be downgraded if reddick is 6'2! But he really is that low? You have a number of 6'2 guys who just look average and then you have reddick who's listed at the same height but looks very tall
[Editor Rob: Lance is the one who said he was 6ft 2, I am listing what he claims to be.
He is in a low budget zombie movie with Grant Bowler, and if he's 4 inches taller I'll become a zombie!]
Lo sgozzatore said on 4/Nov/12
Rob, if lance reddick is really only 6'2, Jackson is not over 6'0.5! What about downgrade him?
Aragorn 5'11 said on 2/Nov/12
Definitely a strong 6'1 if not a little more. Just watch Fringe and you'll see.
steven said on 9/Jan/12
took of 1/2" of hair he is 6'0.5
maio said on 6/Jan/12
6 ft 1 in/185 cm is right for him. Never looked taller for me.
said on 10/Aug/11
the be all end all of his height.
check this image, he's in flipflops, image shows from head to toe.
looks like a strong 6'1 to me.
Shaun said on 19/Jul/11
To be fair he does usually look 6'1"
Shaun said on 19/Jul/11
There's something about him and Russell Crowe and Liev Schrieber that I really dislike. They all have that trait, I don't know what it is, sort of a smug arrogance.
said on 19/Jul/11
Have you downgraded him Rob? I could have sworn you had him at 6'2" before.
[Editor Rob: I've not touched this listing for years]
jake said on 11/Jun/11
looked 4-5 inches taller than 5' 9" max Robert Englund in Urban Legend. I'd say 6"1.75 with good posture.
Ciccio said on 7/Jun/11
He's not even 6.1 maybe. John Noble is stated as 6.0 and they look almost the same
Viper said on 3/Jun/11
6-0 MAX. Hell he looked 5-11 with 5-7 Glenn.
Karen said on 1/Jun/11
Anna Torv is 1.75 cm.
Josh is 187.
astrago said on 27/Apr/11
looks 6'0 tops, he's like 1.5 inches taller than Anna Torv (170cm) in Fringe and he wears weird shoes in the show too (looks like lifts to me).
Anna wears 2 inches shoes which make her look 176-177.
real 6'2 are actors like MATHEW FOX from LOST, Joshua Jackson is 6'1 in shoes, 6'0 no shoes, i'm not downgrading him for fun but because i really think he's 6'0.
mohammad said on 7/Mar/11
Should be around 6'1, hate the guy tho
Viper said on 28/Feb/11
He looks 6-0 tops. Hes not 6-1
Jo said on 27/Feb/11
Er... no way is he 6'0. Wtf is wrong with some of you guys that feel the need to downgrade everyone? He looks about 6'1.
niki said on 2/Feb/11
I walked right past Joshua Jackson this afternoon in Vancouver. His girlfriend was on his arm. Like side by side past him. I'm exactly 5'4 3/4, 5'5 with the chucks I was wearing and my guess was he's easily 6'2 minimum, maybe closer to 6'3. He was the tallest man on the street, and my head just passed his shoulder. Very tall guy and very slim. Much more attractive in person than on screen, and kind of intimidating because of his height. True he was dressed up and waring dress shoes. So I'll accept that they gave him an inch or so. But he's at least an inch taller than what you've written him down as without his shoes.
E said on 13/Jan/11
he seems like the typical celebrity to exagerate his height, not necessarily lie but just stretch the truth... never looked more than 6' anytime i have ever seen him... im 6'1.5" and did not feel shorter than him...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Dec/10
185cm, maybe 186cm...
Josh said on 18/Nov/10
I agree with viper 6'0 6'0.5 tops Paul and him are the same height in the skulls they even stand back to back for the duel at the end of the movie .
Viper said on 15/Nov/10
Both Paul and Josh are 6'0

If Paul walker is listed at 6'2' then so should Joshua jackson!

d said on 1/Jul/09
how is 1 or 2 inches absurd?
1 or 2 inches isn't that much at all....leonari ar eyou stupid? I said AROUND 6 foot is average for a white guy!!!
You don't understand what AROUND 6 foot means?
I could say to someone that guy is around 6 foot when he is 5-10
TheProv said on 16/Jun/09
It's impossible.In Dawson's Creek hi is at max. 2,3 cm taller than James Van Der Beek in almost all the scenes.And i don't think that Van Der Beek is more tall than 180-181 cm.
cinemagoer said on 17/May/09
in fringe he does look around 6'2.5'' standing next to noble ( dr walter bishop ), who is 6'1''.
Greg said on 24/Mar/09
Chip he was like 6 feet tall in D3
dani said on 26/Feb/09
"Thank you Viper.almost any height for a women,at least 5ft to 5-9,to me is normal.a short woman,I barely notice.a short dude,whoa,I feel bad.with my impeccable posture and footwear I can appear near 5-10.so thats average.I nearly match my 5-10,5-11 friends due to their horrendous posture."
Glen you made a mistake.The average height for a man in the USA is 5"9(1.759cm) not 5"10(1.78cm). If you can look 5"10 you look over average. Im 5"10 and think im taller than the average.
Paddy said on 25/Feb/09
"thus, 6'2.5'' sounds pretty reasonable."
Paddy said on 24/Feb/09
It's enough to compare him to John Nonble ( dr Walter Bishop in the Fringe series ), who is 6'1. Joshua has at least an inch over him. Personally, I'd give it 1.5 inch, thus, 6'1.5'' sounds pretty reasonable.
jay89 said on 30/Jan/09
lance reddick is listed 6'4". and he really is. i met him about 3 month ago. i'm 6'3 morning height and he was about an inch taller than me.
joshua jackson is at least 6'2".
Hollywoodfan said on 21/Jan/09
How tall is Lance Reddick, josh's co-star on Fringe? He appeared perhaps 1/2 an inch to an inch taller than Josh on a recent episode of the show.
Anonymous said on 21/Jan/09
one word lifts.....
jay89 said on 12/Dec/08
he doesnt give the impression but he's very tall. 6'2" or even an inch taller.
Lenad said on 12/Dec/08
Pheraps you should post the photo again so I can see for myself if hes no more than a flat 6'0.
glenn said on 30/Nov/08
despite me putting down viper estimates on another page,on occasion i agree.6-2 for joshua is absurd.slightly over 6ft.
Viper said on 30/Nov/08
Beacause he really is 6-0. The 6-2 is utter bull.
Lenad said on 30/Nov/08
I estimate this guy to be 6'2 but didnt he look only 6'0 max with Glenn?
hollywoodfan said on 24/Nov/08
Hey Ashley! You saw "Fringe" filming on campus this past friday too? Cool! They've filmed an episode previously which aired actually 2 weeks ago! The cast & crew are all cool! I hear they'll probably shoot more episodes on campus! They might as well set up shop at BC! LOL!!
Ashley said on 23/Nov/08
Ok I saw Joshua Jackson in my campus when they were filming Fringe. we all took pics with him. Here is the deal he doesn't give an impression of a very tall guy but GUYS he is Very very very tall. I swear I was shocked when I saw him. I'd say he's more than '62 probably 6'3. He was taller than almost everyone all the guys and girls.
leonari said on 19/Nov/08
shf: most guys are 6 feet? In some countries (Netherlands, Montenegro etc) but in most your statement is false. If you would say 5'10: I could agree ,but 6 feet? Wrong.
shf said on 19/Nov/08
5-4 is really short
that's about average for an asian though
5-8 is short for a white guy
most are around 6 foot
shf said on 19/Nov/08
6-0 and 6-2 is a big difference!! sarcasm
people said on 14/Nov/08
on kimmel, jimmy tells him he's much taller than he thought.jackson responds "it's the lifts"
i give this guy 6' tops.
Lenad said on 18/Oct/08
He isnt a wannabe 6'2 guy unlike Evander Holyfeld and LL Cool J.
jay said on 10/Oct/08
somewhere between 6'1 and 6'2 seems right.
i'm 6'2" and my gf is 5'7" and she looks just as "short" next to me as diane kruger looks next to joshua.
Viper said on 25/Sep/08
6-2 is laughable. Hes really around 6-0. He even looked 6-0 with Glenn.
Lenad said on 23/Sep/08
Does look rougly 6'2 so this listing is fine.
Anonymous said on 20/Sep/08
GSP - any links or references to these studies on twins, or are you just speculating? I know two twins, both 21, one who's been a computer game/WoW addict with poor sleep habits through his entire teen years, and the other who's a healthy jock (involved in both swimming and basketball). Both of them are 5'10 exactly.
I do agree that environmental factors play a part but I think people are overexaggerating their importance. Especially the exercise factor. Height is at least 90 % genetic. There's a reason that the african Watusi tribespeople are tall (most averaging at 6'0) despite not having Western societies range of nutrition. By some people's logic here, the Watusi would all grow to 8 feet tall if they just started playing more basketball. Doubtful.
That being said, I do believe that nutrition plays a big part in height. But, I disagree with comments here that growth would be stunted just over skipping meals back in grade school or not being athletic. The two most out-of-shape people I know are 6'9 and 6'3, respectively.
You would honestly have to be severely deprived/malnourished at an Extreme level (we're talking anorexia for several years during childhood) to permanently affect the genetic building blocks of height. Most all of us average joes and janes reach our maximum potential, despite what our own paranoia might tell us.

wow. i thought he was only 6 feet tall.
Aimie said on 30/May/08
Emilio Stevez looks like he is 5'6'' or even 5'5''. He was so cute back in the 80's. Joshua looks like he is that tall indeed.
nobody said on 20/Apr/08
I love Josh, he's a great actor & being tall just makes him cooler! In my opinion, he really is 6'2
nicole said on 16/Apr/08
Bad posture in this picture from Joshua. He seems a nice person.Could be 6ft1.5 in my opinion.
Anonymous said on 2/Apr/08
maybe 6'1.75 in shutter. coach bombay is in the pic also jk
sam said on 30/Mar/08
6'1.5 is perfect. seems taller than 6'1, yet not quiiiite 6'2.....

The average identical twins are 1.1 inches different in height I read.
As you know identical twins have the same DNA.
If the identical twins are raised apart I bet the average difference in height would be about 2 inches.
Therefore, I agree with GSP that environmental factors are important.
GSP said on 3/Feb/08
Twin studies, population studies ect all point to height being significantly effected by environmental fators.
The general standard estimate seems to be 90% heriditary and 10% environment.
10% of a six foot mans height is 7.2 inches. Lets assume one person has bad diet, sleep, smokes, does drugs ect during childhood and only gets 50% of his environmentally influenced potential..that is a loss of 3.6 inches. Now his identical twin gets perfect diet, sports, no stress ect and he reaches 100% of his potential.
One of the twins will end up at 6ft and the other at 5'8.4 ...even though we are only talking a few inches difference which is 5% of the 6 footers height..this is enough to have one twin categorized in the tall category and the other one in the borderline short category.
We are just like any other organism..if you provide optimal conditions it will grow to full potential, if not it will be smaller.
See what im saying?
chris175 said on 3/Feb/08
i fully agree with mia, height is hereditary, i dont believe it can be significantly altered by diet/excercise. i know a guy who is allergic to pretty much everything, nuts, eggs, milk and other things that would provide him with protein, he is 6-5 and only 16! joshua jackson seems in the 6-1 range to me
GSP said on 2/Feb/08
I got your point Mia. Its very true that height should not be a top priority when judging a man. Just wanted to clear up that its not entirely true that its only genetics that determine height. Cheers.
Mia said on 1/Feb/08
GSP: thank you for missing the point of my entry.
GSP said on 21/Jan/08
Thats wrong. Height can be altered by things such as diet. Why else do you think identical twins can vary as much as 5 inches in height and they have identical genetics. Also why the dutch went from shortest to tallest?
Saying height is ONLY genetic is just something uninformed people say. No offense. It is largely genetic sure but diet, sleeping patterns, stress among other environmental influences can have a significant effect on a persons final height.
Its an intricate relationship between genetic potentials and environmental influences that determine a persons attained adult height.
Mia said on 21/Dec/07
Joshua Jackson is very tall and handsome. That said, the last thing I would judge a man for is his height, which is is due to his genetics and unchangeable by even diet or exercise. There are so many other characteristics to judge a man by: his IQ, his career/ambition, his sense of justice, his ability to carry on a decent conversation, etc. When it comes down to it, judging someone by their height is generalizing and objectifying to the lowest common denominator, and frankly, anyone who toots their own horn for their height and/or degrades another for their lack of height probably has nothing else to offer. Pass.
Socom said on 7/Dec/07
I say 6 feet and .5 inches
asdcrtfvgbyhnjmk said on 1/Dec/07
are you sure he is that tall? he always looked just about the same height as james van der beek and kerr smith in dawson's creek, who are both 6'0 even. or maybe james and kerr taller than 6'0.

bob said on 15/Sep/07
unfortunetly glenn is right, even a 5'8 guy gets stuff for his height, let alone someone in emilio's situation. I personally don't judge anyone based on height. but glenn knows about this. like this girl totally kept telling me how short i was and wouldn't believe my height when i told her. I mean i am actually 5'7.5 or so, and she keeps telling me im like 5'3! (to boot i am clearly taller then this girl herself!) whats up with girls, huh glenn.
Chip said on 17/Aug/07
Does anyone agree that Joshua had a late puberty? I mean, he aged perfectly well in the end, because now he looks his age, but some child stars (like Ralph Macchio from Karate Kid) don't look their age until their 30s. I think Ralph was still going through puberty in his twenties, because he was in his 20s in The Outsiders and in The Karate Kid. Joshua, only the other hand, seemed to age a lot after D2: The Mighty Ducks, in which he was 15.
Anon said on 18/Jun/07
-Glenn:"No sweat off my back wasa.get some therapy.I dont care what one or 2 people think about me.most people here think Im cool,and they are family to me.take care."
Glenn ur a very sensitive guy, da guy was just sharing his views why would he need therapy. Chill
Jack said on 27/May/07
Jeeze Glenn why do have to be so ****ing mean dude? And I really don't know what you're talking about I see 5'4 guys all the time and it's annoying to hear other people comment on them that they're so "small" wtf, why does anyone care?
I have sympathy for you.
Lmeister said on 15/May/07
Maybe it is because Joshua is slouching, but I agree with Alex. Im 5'8'' and have many friends who are 6'2'' I know that the height difference more noticable. Joshua looks 6'0''...
Viper said on 14/May/07
Alex, you could argue 5-11 for Josh in this picture. This is also a picture where you could argue that Glenn is looking closer to 5-10.
Aaron said on 14/May/07
Alex, if that's the case then you're probably more height-conscious than Joshua.
Alex said on 14/May/07
Josh doesn't look more than 6'0 with Glenn. Could be less. I'm 6'0.5 and 5'8 guys come lower on my than Glenn does on Josh.
Aaron said on 11/May/07
wow, this is weird. Josh got moved up a quarter of an inch to 6' 1.5" and Paul Walker got moved down to 6' 2". I saw The Skulls the other day, and the duel scene at the end of the movie puts Jackson and Walker back to back and the difference in height between the two seems to be more than half an inch. My guess would be closer to an inch and half difference between the two. Walker should be moved back up to 6' 2.5" and Jackson should be back to 6' 1".
Viper said on 8/May/07
Its more Josh Jackson is 6-0 and Paul Walker 6-0 1/2.
Josh said on 8/May/07
Josh Jackson is a bit shorter than 6'1 Paul Walker hes in the 6'0.5 range barefoot he looks 6'1.5 with shoes on.
radio_man said on 12/Apr/07
van der beek can is 6'0 and joshua 6'1, but I swear!
I saw this morning an episode of the last episode of dawson's creek and van der beek and joshua both in normal sneakers..I swear joshua was like 1cm taller..my guess..joshua is 6'1
Chip said on 2/Apr/07
Well, I'm going to restate this in a simpler way. Joshua Jackson was actually about Glenn's height in D3. He looked about 5'8" compared to the 5'4"-5'5" Estevez, so I guess Josh grew about six inches afterwards. He really doesn't look much taller than Glenn in this pic, though, but that's probably because of his slouched posture. But somehow I think he's more of a 6'0"-6'1" instead of a 6'2". btw, Josh is over a foot taller than he was in D1. Like I said, he grew a LOT during adolescence.
Chip said on 31/Mar/07
Joshua Jackson grew a LOT during puberty. I mean, compare him to Emilio Estevez in "D1: The Mighty Ducks." If Estevez was about 5'4" to 5'5", then Joshua was about 6 inches shorter. In one of the scenes, he is shorter than Estevez even with skates on. He was about 13 in the first movie(in real life, not his character). In D2, Josh was about 15, and he had grown quite a bit in height. He was around the same height as Estevez, and was slightly taller than him with skates on(he was about 15 in this film). In D3, it is obvious that Joshua Jackson did a lot of growing. He is taller than Estevez by about three or four inches, and would probably be taller than him barefoot. In D3, Josh was probably about 5'8" to 5'10", and he definitely grew since then, because the height difference in the pic with Emilio in the pic above is greater than it is in D3 by about 4 or 5 inches. Josh is at least about 6'0" tall. btw, I'm pretty sure that Joshua Jackson was a late bloomer during adolescence, because although he was 13 in D1, he looked and sounded 10, and in D2 he was around 15, and he looked 13 and sounded 12. In D3, he was around 17, and he looked and sounded 17. He even grew after D3, and he was in his late teens by then, so he was definitely a late bloomer.
Jake said on 22/Feb/07
please bring this guy down to at least 6'1. It's obvious he isn't above that.
Viper said on 19/Feb/07
Vanderbeek never looked as tall as Josh. And If he ever did, he was wearing lifts.
radio_man said on 18/Feb/07
6'1 seems righ, In some scenes van der beek used to look taller than him, I also think van der beek is 6'1, i have a pic that I wanna post.. how can I do it rob?
Pacman said on 16/Feb/07
Editor Rob. Man, that pic with Joshua, Emilio and Glenn was Classic! i used to watch Mighty Ducks when i was young. i can't believe Charlie Conway grow tall. quack quack GOoo DUCKS!!
MD said on 15/Feb/07
They also don't make you take off whatever shoes (and lifts) you're wearing, too.
Piper said on 15/Feb/07
In Josh's mugshot it lists him as 6'2. They have a wall to measure you...
oracle said on 22/Jan/07
He looks more like 5'11 (1.80) next to Glenn. But perhaps 6 feet is about right due to bad posture.
Derek said on 21/Jan/07
Glenn- My Reeboks give 3/4". When I was 16-17, I was measured at 5'11" barefoot, and 5'11 3/4" in shoes. I have a hard time believing Josh is over 6'0".
Del Mar said on 21/Jan/07
Since Joshua looks close to Walker, that supports the 6-2 height, or Walker is maybe shorter, but in many other cases Joshua looks shorter
Viper said on 20/Jan/07
He only looks a flat 6-0 in the picture. Also Paul Walker is around the same height as Josh Jackson too.
Glenn said on 20/Jan/07
For starts, nowadays theres hardly any shoes that give only one inch.I dont remember Jacksons footwear.Emilio had dress shoes with chunky heels,2 inches at least.I usually have 1.5,1.75 soles.
Ed said on 20/Jan/07
Glen, what's your height in the shoes you typically wear, particularly in the pic above? Jackson doesn't look like he's standing up perfectly straight either, so I'm guessing here but if you are around 5ft8 barefoot(5ft9 or a bit more w/shoes), than Jackson if standing up straight would be about 4.5 to 5 inches taller than you, making him 6ft2 w/shoes(around 6ft1 barefoot).Also Glenn can you remember what kind of shoes he was wearing?
Josh said on 19/Jan/07
I knew it hes 6'0.5 (184cm) he really looks barely taller than 6'0 in the pic ,even being genoerous u can't give more than 6'1 .
Del Mar said on 19/Jan/07
Yeah, Rob it's at least better. A lot nearer the truth than the 6-2 listing
6'2.5'' JK said on 19/Jan/07
Glenn wats up with the armpits man?? Was Josh a nice in person?
Del Mar said on 19/Jan/07
You know, that's at least the same height difference as between me and a 6-5 mate of mine, and I'm 6 ft. Would put him bang on 6-1 really....

Gonzalo said on 19/Jan/07
Well, wasa. You are taking this too seriously. I don`t think Glenn meant to insult anyone. And I guess Glenn doesn`t respect Brad Garrett more than Estevez becuase he is taller.
Take it easy and enjoy the site!
Glenn said on 19/Jan/07
Thank you Viper.almost any height for a women,at least 5ft to 5-9,to me is normal.a short woman,I barely notice.a short dude,whoa,I feel bad.with my impeccable posture and footwear I can appear near 5-10.so thats average.I nearly match my 5-10,5-11 friends due to their horrendous posture.
Gonzalo said on 19/Jan/07
He is shortest 6`2 man I have ever seen. From the pic he doesn´t look over 6 feet
Glenn said on 18/Jan/07
I love that wasa.a tiny bit taller.throw me in a club or bar with some girls.5-4ish to 5-8 is HUGE difference to how a girl percieves you.TRUST ME.I hear girls talking all the time and have plenty of female friends and girlfriends.given,it is also very true,a handful of girls wont give me the time of day cause IM short.but Im kinda average.even on this site, and in private,I joke about MY height,once in a while.your taking this too serious.
Derek said on 18/Jan/07
I guess he never grew after the third Mighty Ducks movie.
Glenn said on 18/Jan/07
Wasa-and your point? yes,Viper,I think I always agreed with you.

hey is that martin sheen's son? emilio estevez???

Lookin legit 6-2 here with Kutcher, but have aslo seen him look a bit shorter in some pics, while still believe he's 1.89

he seem like 6'1 in that pic, he seems the same height of harrison ford..!
no way he's 6'2 and diane krueger its not 5'7 either..she seems to be 5'6
Del Mar said on 17/Jan/07
HE really looks 6 ft. Or maybe Glenn really is 5-10 ;)
Viper652 said on 30/Nov/06
Well, Josh did look 6-0-6-1 on Dawsons Creek with 5-10-5-11 James Vanderbeek.
6'2'' JK said on 30/Nov/06
I agree Rob he did have about 3 inches on him, I think Josh is a Legit 6'2'' guy
[Editor Rob: I'm sure he'll look shorter with Glenn though ;)]
Viper652 said on 30/Nov/06
Peterson is 5-11 Max. Josh looks 6-0 there, which Im sure is his real height.
[Editor Rob: if you watch the movie again and read the Paul Walker page Ed's comment on 19/Sep/06 and my reply - I said after rewatching that Jackson does indeed look to have more like 3 inches on Petersen.]
glenn said on 30/Nov/06
Just got him and Emilio in the same pic.Josua always looked 6ft in the flesh to me.
6'2'' JK said on 29/Nov/06
Joshua Jackson always looked like a solid 6'2'' guy to me.
D.J. said on 7/Aug/06
I haven't gotten a good look at him since the 3rd Mighty Ducks movie when he was 18. There were a few scenes where he stood next to 5'6" Emilio Estevez and he didn't look much more than 6' but since you can grow after 18, I guess he is around 6'1"-6'2".
TheJerk said on 10/May/06
i keep doing his: in regards to the comment below: more like 6 inches sorry just had a look again he's probably closer to 6-1 even.
said on 10/May/06
Always thought of him as tall. Looking at a picture of him and the 5'7 valderama Click Here
he looks a solid 6 or 7 on him making him 6-1 to 6-2 as i always thought of him as.
Josh said on 6/Feb/06
It´s a scene after that girl rescues him from the mental facility he is wearing a gray shirt jeans and white socks he really doesn´t look 6'2 barefoot , he didn´t look taller than 6-1 probably 6-0.5 but no shorter than that , so with shoes he can easily look 6-1.5 6-2.
Viper652 said on 4/Feb/06
Josh, in what scene did he look 6-1?? I havnt seen that movie since it came out.
Josh said on 3/Feb/06
In the Skulls there is a scene where he is barefoot and he looked 6'1 maybe he reaches the 6'2 range with shoes but barefoot definetly no more than 6-1.
thegame said on 27/Nov/05
hes 6'1" 180 lbs. ...
Viper652 said on 6/Nov/05
Damn,in that pic he looks 5-10 Max, but I still think he's 6-0.
Bleemo said on 5/Nov/05
Hmm no I think Viper has hit the nail on the head with this one again, take a look at him opposite William peterson who is allowing himself to be reffered to as 5ft11 on CSI these days and some even say he is 5ft10.........
Absolutely bang on eye level and if anything peterson is a shade taller, look at the eyelines. Hard to imagine even in lifts that a 5ft10-5ft11 inch man could appear a shade taller then a 6ft2 inch man in formal shoes himself.
Ti Gu said on 29/Oct/05
Hey, i was wondering how tall Joshua Jackson's parents are
Mario Nariano said on 28/Oct/05
Why would it be the truth? Because it is shortest listining? And it isn´t truth that they inflate the height of every celeb, a lot of celebs are actually shorter listed on the internet and magazines than they really are (think of Roger Moore, Tom Cruise, Ernest Botgbine and sometimes stallone with that funny 5 ft 7. listening). And Yes some celebs inflate there own height but it´s ridicolous if you inflate your own height by 2 or 3 inches. I don´t know any celeb who does that.
Viper652 said on 28/Oct/05
I would say the 6-0 listing is probably closest to the truth. They inflated it when he got even more famous. They do that to all Celebs.
Mario Nariano said on 27/Oct/05
Damm Viper this is weakest that I have seen from you too downgrade a celeb.
Just because he has been listed as 6 ft in some site or magazine, he doesn't have to be 6 ft.
I can tell you for sure that this guy isn't any shorter than 6 ft 1.5.
Viper652 said on 27/Oct/05
Josh's real height is 6-0. I remember he was listed at 6-0 for a few years on the internet.
Kats said on 27/Oct/05
Speaking of The Skulls, I just watched it, and Paul Walker is a little taller than Joshua Jackson, but I don't think Paul is quite 6'3, making Joshua not quite 6'2.

this guy must be 6'1", he doesn't look 6'2" at all in The Skulls.

A couple of Years ago, I think it was People magazine that had a list of Eligible batchelors. It said that Joshua Jackson was 6'0" tall.
J. said on 24/Mar/05
Now wonder I thought that 6'2" listing was a lie! I remember watching him on Dawson's Creek in the earlier seasons ... he grew since then. My mistake. He really is around this height. He's taller than he seems.
Mr. said on 24/Mar/05
A couple of years ago, between seasons, It was reported that Josh had grown so much that they had to create a new wardrobe tom accommodate his nearly 6'3" frame. Apparently he did have a growth spurt after the show began.
J. said on 24/Mar/05
You guys are right, the first picture that I posted showed a scene where they are standing on a stairwell so that wasn't a good photo. I'll admit that I know or care little about the teenybop/'young' Hollywood crop of B-list actors but that 6'2" listing seemed a little too high to me. But he probably is this height. Who knows ...
Jon said on 24/Mar/05
J - That first IMDB photo does not show that the scene is taking place on a flight of stairs, Alicia Witt is on the next step up from Jackson.
Angel said on 24/Mar/05
Sorry, guys. Josh IS right around 6'2. I worked with Josh(granted, it was a while ago)and he was much taller than me. I'm 5'6, and I was wearing shoes. I still only came up to the bridge of his nose or so. I can't believe there are people who care so much! If you watch any of the Dawson's episodes that have Pacey and Joey together, you can easily tell how much taller Josh is than Katie.(She's 5'8 w/out shoes.)
J. said on 18/Mar/05
A ha! I think we caught our buddy Josh in a little white lie here. He ain't 6'2". Check out these pictures:
http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0146336/Ss/0146336/fcstil_0237.jpg?path=pgallery&path_key=Jackson,%20Joshua (opposite 5'8" Alicia Witt- w/ 3 inches heels on)
AND http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0192614/Ss/0192614/4?path=pgallery&path_key=Jackson,%20Joshua (opposite 5'7"-5'8" Leslie Bibb).
DEFINTELY not 6'2".
Guy said on 1/Mar/05
I can't believe I care, but I was (along with a number of other guys
in my crew) an extra in the first skulls as a rower. The only problem
was that after the initial bar scene that we filmed we were told that
we wouldn't be in the boat scenes since we were too big and too tall. I
am at 6'2" along with two of the others and the other of us was about
6'3". The too big factor was the biggest joke considering we were
lightweights and none of us weighed more than 175. We were rather large
in comparison to him, he is an actor who wears work boots around a
bunch of rowers in flip-flops. If you look in the bar scene when they
are singing and drinking and notice some big looking guys, that would
be us - and we're not big guys - the guys who di row with him were all
about 5-9/5-10". Nice try Joshua
