Rob, can you add a photo?
Paleman said on 16/Feb/16
It's interesting, in Nip/Tuck he could look 190cm range, yet many claim that he stands only at 187cm or so. I haven't seen the man's work outside Nip/Tuck, so don't know how tall he has looked elsewhere...

But yeah, judging by Nip/Tuck and some pictures he looks at least 6'2" to me. 6'1"5 is the lowest I can buy for him...

"Julian McMahon height: 6ft 1¾in (187cm)"

Looks just under 6ft2 more often than over...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/May/15
Julian McMahon: 187-188cm
Dorian Gregory: 188-189cm
Judd said on 5/Nov/14
6'1.75-2" next to Liam Hemsworth (6'3").
Alex 6'0 said on 3/May/14
Gregory sometimes looks to have 1/2 inch on McMahon and sometimes the same height. McMahon never looked taller. Really could just be 1/4 inch difference between the 2. Gregory is a strong 6'2 at least. I wouldn't be surprised if he measured more 6'2.5
James B said on 12/Mar/14
Looks 187cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/14
Julian McMahon 6ft2/188cm
Dorian Gregory 6ft2.5/189cm

That looks about right on Charmed. Both big strapping guys.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/13
I think Gregory looked slightly taller. But you're right, 1cm is hardly identifiable
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 7/Dec/13
Rampage, anytime we see these guys they're prob at their evening height anyway. I'm starting to think McMahon at 6'1.5 and Gregory at 6'2. Sometimes they've looked exactly the same height too
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Dec/13
I think somewhere around 187-188cm late evening is a safe bet. Dorian Gregory on the other hand looks slightly taller at 188-189cm.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 4/Dec/13
Dorian Gregory is listed 6'2 here and he can actually look slightly taller than McMahon so maybe 6'1.5 for McMahon that or Gregory is a bit over 6'2
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 4/Dec/13
At worst he would be 6'1.5 and the 6'2 is rounded up but he def can look like a 6'2 guy
Yves said on 10/Nov/13
Something between 6'1.5 to 6'2.5
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 5/Oct/13
Hes def a 187-188cm guy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jul/13
Rob, you mentioned on a page once that for every 6ft2 guy, there'll be a 6ft1.75 and 6ft2.25 guy.
Which is more likely for Julian?

He can look 188-189cm as often as 187-188cm
[Editor Rob: he could look across that range, so 6ft 2 on the nose I think is fair, I wouldn't go with over 6ft 2]

Julian McMahon is obviously a broad shouldered and well built six footer but after watching him in 'Magenta' I don't see the proportions of a 6'2" man - especially in relation to other cast members.

In the TV show 'Charmed' he could look very tall but the three lead actresses were not much above 5 feet themselves.

I am going to go with 6'0" - 6'1" barefoot height.

I wonder why he seems taller now on 'Nip/Tuck' and modern films as opposed to his earlier films and the Australian 'Home & Away' soap opera?

He is taller than 6' flat, at least 6'1.5.

Look 1.86m in face in the crowd.
James said on 8/Sep/11
i think 188cm is fair enough
ANDREA[ITA] said on 8/Sep/11
alex that makes him a legit 6'2 guy!
Alex said on 2/Sep/11
Rampage, yea that looks right. Solid 187cm guy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/11
189cm out of bed
188cm afternoon
187cm before bed
James said on 7/Aug/11
Alex says on 6/Aug/11
James, true. Julian can def pull off 6'3 in shoes but barefoot 6'2 max. 6'1 3/4 may be dead on but at the lowest he'd be is 6'1 1/2.

Yes I agree. i think julian would be 6'2.75 (190cm) out of bed after a good nights sleep.

he is no way a 6'3 guy.
Alex said on 6/Aug/11
James, true. Julian can def pull off 6'3 in shoes but barefoot 6'2 max. 6'1 3/4 may be dead on but at the lowest he'd be is 6'1 1/2.
James said on 28/Jul/11
i think 6'1.75 could be on the money. Someone in a magazine article 4-5 years ago described Julian as being "6ft3" which is verging on ridicolous. i can understand a guy like Ashton Kutcher being described as 6'3 but Julian McMahon does not look over 6'2 on Nip Tuck.

I guess though Julians build at times can make him look taller than he actually is.
Alex said on 20/Jul/11
Telling the difference between 6'1 1/2 and 6'2 isn't easy unless you're up close. You can't tell the difference just from pics but hes def between 187cm and 188cm though. He had a foot or so on Alyssa Milano who is 5'1-5'1 1/2
Chameleon said on 9/Apr/11
You can tell the difference between 187 and 188cm? He's 6'2.
James said on 7/Apr/11
I think Julian is 6'1.75 (187cm). Most of the time he looks a weak 6'2 on Nip Tuck.
Alex said on 10/Oct/07
Brian Krause is not 6'0. 5'10 putting Julian at 6'1 1/2. There was a 3-4 inch difference.
Stefan said on 10/Oct/07
Brian Krause is 6'0. Julian should be around 6'3 then...
Alex said on 30/Sep/07
No way is he 6'3-6'4. He was always a couple inches taller than 5'9.5-5'10 Brian Krause. Most pics put him between 6'1 and 6'2.
Stefan said on 29/Sep/07
He's 6'3 or 6'4, because in the Charmed episode ''Primrose Path'' he looks three or for inches taller than 6'0 Morgan Weisser. Who watched this episode, will know...
Alex said on 23/Sep/07
Dmeyer he does look at least 6'2 in that movie. My guess would be a strong 6'1 1/2.
dmeyer said on 20/Sep/07
does look about 189 cm in fantastic four
Alex said on 25/Aug/07
Franco, reason he can look 6'2-6'3 sometimes is because on Charmed he's around girls 5'1-5'3 so that will do it. Baily looked 6'3-6'4, could have been bigger footwear for the demon part maybe.
Franco said on 14/Aug/07
well ok 6'1 but i'm not budging higher than this and i think Michael Bailey isnt 190cm, i think he's like 188cm ;)
Alex said on 3/Aug/07
Viper, yea thats his max height but I doubt he's under 6'1 either. Rob should at least bring him down to 6'1.5 because he has Dorian Gregory at 6'2 who is a legit 6'2 and Julian was always 1/2 to an inch shorter than him on Charmed.

Jan, interesting picture because I do think Micheal Baily Smith is a legit 6'4 guy but when he turned into Balthazor he was a few inches taller. The picture doesn't match up though.
Viper said on 1/Aug/07
He looks 6-1 1/2 max on Nip Tuck. Also looks it standing next to 5-9 Dylan Walsh.
JanJ said on 31/Jul/07
He can look 190 cm..

Click Here

with 6'4 michael bailey smith..

and when julian mcmahon transforms into belthazor he always looked 1 inch taller, so I think he's 6'2.5
Alex said on 29/Jul/07
Franco I think he's over 6'0.5. He's taller than that. Her 5'8 barefoot and in heels she'll be 5'10-5'11 and he still has 3.5-4 inches over her. So he would be 6'2-6'3 in normal shoes. To me he's still 6'1 bare minimum barefoot. My guess is 6'1.5 though.
Franco said on 26/Jul/07
are you kidding?

MCMAHON is a 6'1.5 flat with shoes real height 6'0.5 considering Amber Valletta is 173cm now take a look at this and make up your mind.

Click Here

he's 6'2 or 6'3 with lifts, this guy real height barefooted is 184cm.

AMBER VALLETTA is 173cm and this guy is a true 184cm, 189cm my ass.

unless Valletta had platform which is pretty much 99% unlikely.
dsneyvoice said on 26/Jun/07
I saw him a few years ago at an Eddie Izzard performance. He was standing 15 feet or so away from me, so I couldn't say exactly, but I'm 5'8" and he looked to be several inches taller than me. I'd say 6'2" is accurate. And on a side note...he's even hotter in person. ;)
Alex said on 19/Jun/07
Yea so he's no more than 6'1.5 barefoot which I believe could probably be his real height. He's a strong 6'1.
alba said on 16/Jun/07
looks no taller than 6ft2.5 with shoe atually.. 6ft2.5 was his height with shoe gain i think..
Alex said on 7/Jun/07
Actually he probably was as low as 180-185lbs, anything over that is too much because I'm 200lbs and I'm a bit shorter than him and I'm bigger than him for sure when I see him on that show.
He really is 6'1 or 6'1.5 at most. The fact that he was with short girls on the show like 5'1 Alyssa would give the impression where he can look 6'2-6'3 really, but put him near taller people and you can clearly tell he's under 6'2.
Viper said on 6/Jun/07
Yeah, I would have said 6-1 180 for him actually.
AAAA said on 6/Jun/07
His web site claims 6'2 and 182 pounds. Its hard to estamiate weight. The camera adds it
Alex said on 6/Jun/07
AAAA, I'd guess Julian at 6'1-6'1.5 and anywhere from 190-200lbs. I don't think he looked too big but he wasn't a small man either. At times looked more leaner though. He probably bulked up a bit at different times during the show I can assume.
AAAA said on 3/May/07
He looked pretty jacked in some Charmed episodes. I don't really watch Nip Tuck, He may not be that built anymore
Alex said on 27/Apr/07
His height I agree could very well be 6'1.5. But his weight, I don't think he's a big framed guy, he's lean though. I dont think he's more than 185lbs at almost 6'2.
AAAA said on 29/Mar/07
He seems really close to my size when I see him next to Alyssa Milano. I have a good friend who is 5'2ish and the height difference seems comparable. I think he is 6'1.5-6'2, maybe like 6' 1.75. Pretty big frame too
know it said on 21/Mar/07
Nope he's really tall, maybe lying the other way, as in taller than he says. Saw an interview with some-one on the red carpet where he towered over a female reporter, then very sneekily leant against something so he dropped to just over a few inches higher. Kept his shoulders square so he did not look like he was ducking down.

Has a sneeky tall man's crouch so he looks more on eye level than he is.

Also saw some reports from fans who got close, (as in arm around) at the Paley festival and their reports are he is a big, big man, much bigger than he looks on screen. They were quite shocked at how big and tall he is in real life. There are pictures from Paley where he is surrounded by fans and easy to find in the crowd because he is a head taller than anyone else.
RobertJ said on 14/Mar/07
Looking at him again, 6'1.5'' seems right.
Alex said on 2/Jan/07
I'm still sticking with 6'1.5 for him. By looking at that picture of him you posted I'd say he looks 6'1 bare minimum.
Viper652 said on 24/Nov/06
Yep, its time for a downgrade to 6-1 1/2 at least.
Alex said on 23/Nov/06
Julian was close to a foot taller than 5'2 Alyssa Milano (who some say is more 5'1 or even 5'0 flat which is crazy). Yes she's short but shes no less than 5'1.5 and more likely 5'2 if you ask me. I'd say 6'1.5 for Julian right now. He was also a couple inches taller than the 5'10 Brian Krause too.
Viper652 said on 22/Nov/06
I said the same thing before Alex. Julian never looked as tall as Dorian on Charmed in most shots. All the evidence adds up to 6-1, maybe 6-1 1/2.
Alex said on 21/Nov/06
Dorian Gregory is a legit 6'2 guy correct? On Charmed yesterday Julian didn't look as tall as him, damn near it though at 1/2 inch shorter. I could see him as 6'1.5 though, he's over 6'1 flat though I believe.
Alex said on 16/Nov/06
He looks like a solid 6'2 guy to me on Charmed. I thought Dorian Gregory was a bit shorter. Maybe the shot, but most of the time they looked the same height.
Ed Kline said on 11/Oct/06
This guy was distinctly taller than Brooke Shields on Nip Tuck..I buy 6'2.5
MD said on 27/Sep/06
Yeah, Letterman is clearly not a full 6'2", anymore.
Viper652 said on 26/Sep/06
John, the guy truly looks 6-1 1/2. Please, dont be so naive.
Viper652 said on 26/Sep/06
Letterman isnt 6-2 anymore. He is 186-187 now. Julian also looks that height on the show.
sam said on 25/Sep/06
David letterman is 6'2. If this guy is his height then logically he is also 6'2.
john said on 16/Sep/06
Apparently no actor on the planet can be more than 6'1", Viper652 as this seems to be your standard response. It seems to be a bit arbitrary or is there more to it than that? Are you really 6'1" and can't stand to believe there are actors taller than yourself? This seems to me to be a plausible explanation for your obvious insecurities when concerning height above 6'1".
Viper652 said on 7/Sep/06
Not from what I remember jojo. I thought his head was a litte over the 6-2 mark. Hes 6-1 1/2 Max either way though.

[Editor Rob: anybody know the episode or at least what the episode was about?]
jojocrab said on 6/Sep/06
viper 452, i just saw the episode too with mcmahon in front of the height chart and i paused it. in his dress shoes he is just under 6 foot 4.. what are you saying?
RobertJ said on 1/Aug/06
He pretty much towers over everyone on nip/tuck so atleast 6'2'' sounds right. He's pretty big and as other have mentioned has excellent posture so that may make him look taller.
Viper652 said on 29/Jul/06
I sure dont see 6-3. He only looks 6-1 1/2 at best with 5-9ish Dylan Walsh, and was about the same height as David Letterman on his show.
Stefan said on 28/Jul/06
He's VERY tall. most sites say that he's 6'3 and i agree with them! so in conclusion 6'3 (190-191cm) he's definitely taller than 6'2 Gregory.
Plus, look at the difference between him and 6'0 Brian Krause! Definitely 3in!
Viper652 said on 24/Jun/06
He looked an inch shorter then 6-2 Dorian Gregory on Charmed. Cant be no more then 6-1.
J. said on 5/May/06
One thing I will say about this guy is that on "Nip/Tuck", he stands and walks with excellent posture. And he's not like a Stallone or Cruise, per say, in that his great stance isn't forced. I totally buy the 6'2.5".
Glenn said on 3/May/06
Anonymous said on 2/May/06
Frank 2 or Glen, have you met this guy in person and have a precise assessment of his height?
Morgan said on 5/Dec/05
he looks super tall on Charmed I knoew Alyssa Milano is 5"2 but even then he looked massive!!!!!
MD said on 20/Oct/05
Once again, he looked exactly the same height as David Letterman when he was on his show. That makes the 6'1" numbers seem correct.
Stiffelio said on 19/Oct/05
Julian McMahon is 6ft 1.5" max. I'm a Nip/Tuck addict and I watch and re-watch each show. Here's my shot at the main stars' heights (barefoot).

Julian McMahon : 6ft 1.5"
Dylan Walsh : 5ft 9.5"
Jolie Richardson : 5ft 9.5" (she looks taller than Walsh but I've allowed for some heel height differential)
John Hensley : 5ft 9.5"
Roma Maffia : 5ft 10
Kelly Carlsson : 5ft 5"
Famke Janssen : 5ft 11"
Bruno Campos : 6ft
Rhona Mitra : 5ft 5"
Viper652 said on 19/Oct/05
It was the premiere of this weeks episode. It comes on again Friday night Eastern time at 10 PM on FX.
Viper652 said on 18/Oct/05
Just saw this guy standing in front of a height chart in Nip Tuck. Assuming he had shoes on, the top of his head was around the 6-2 mark. Which would mean he is really in the 6-1 range.

[Editor Rob: can you remember which episode, and I might dig the shot up?]
kate said on 22/Sep/05
to me it seems like if an actor's tall then he's from australia *ggg*
Viper652 said on 25/Jul/05
I think this guy is more around 6-1 then 6-2, from seeing him on Nip Tuck.
Carmen said on 25/Jul/05
He's 6'2" I stood right next to him at one of our parties in SouthBeach.
Jess said on 7/Jul/05
Julian is 6 ft 2 tall.That's what People magazine says.
Mr. Klaus said on 1/Jul/05
Wrong I saw Julian McMahon a year ago and I was dwarfed By him. I'm 6'1" and this guy is at least 2 inches taller than I am. 6'3" without doubt maybe even taller.
Mr. R said on 29/Jun/05
I agree anon. I saw Letterman last night, and Julian is either the same size or just below Letterman. He was not taller. I think 6'1.5 is good.
anon said on 29/Jun/05
Once again my point was proven with Letterman tonight... Julian was slightly shorter or same height as letterman, with similar shoes. I think he should be 6 1.5... same as Letterman
Anonymous said on 16/Jun/05
I would say that height for Julian is about right 6'2.5 he is at least 6'2.
Abby do you really think Rove (the host) is 5'8? He looks to me 5'6
anon said on 14/Jun/05
Here are some photos to exemplify my point. The other photos on the page dont work because way julian is situated in front it makes him appear taller. These are taken at a fairly stright angle:

Chris is shlumpin/leaning in this one and even so julian doesn't quite look 2 inches taller
anon said on 14/Jun/05
I think he should be downgraded to 6 1.5, 6 2 tops. He is a big guy so he seems very tall and has a big presence. But if you look at him next to chris evans at the MTV movie awards he only looks at most an inch taller... and chris was wearing regular vans or convers, while julian was wearing healed dress shoes.
Abby said on 11/Jun/05
Julian is really tall!! On 7 June 2005, while he was promoting 'The Fantastic Four' in Australia he was on a talk shoe where the host (a guy) is only 5'8" and he is impressively tall.
Elisabeth Grace said on 22/Apr/05
I think his height needs to be rounded down a little to 6'2" but he is pretty tall!

[Editor Rob: looking at him beside a 6ft 3 athlete he really looks close to him, but this guy back in his soap days really looked average. I was surprised he is a 6ft 2+ guy!]
