How tall is Karl Urban

Karl Urban's Height

6ft ½ in (184.2 cm)

New Zealand actor best known for roles in movies like Dredd, Star Trek, Doom and Lord of the Rings. His acting agency listed him as 185cm, whilst another gave him 184cm. In this convention photo I had a fraction more sneaker than him.

His small head and proportions can make him seem taller standing alone. No more than 6'0 1/2 for him.
Jawilder said on 18/May/23
@rampage He’s not over 6’0.5. This listing is fine but anything over is excessive. Probably just a strong 6 footer.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/May/23
Jack Quaid has a chance of 6ft1½ so I suppose the 6ft0¾ isn't that unreasonable for Karl? Remember, he stayed that long after Rob met him.

I mean here he looks taller! Click Here

More realistic difference but notice he's taller than Jensen Ackles Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/23
Not a full 6ft1 but comfortably over 6ft flat
Darksol64 said on 16/Jan/23
Looks weak 184 to me maybe 6'0 and 1/8-1/4 next to Rob?

Definitely a legit 6 ft dude won't drop below 6'0 flat at a regular low.
Joe Ponce said on 22/Dec/22

If Jack Quaid is 6ft 1¼in, shouldn't Urban be a little taller? I've watched the first 2 seasons of the Boys and it looked like he was as tall as Quaid.
Editor Rob
A lot of time Urban is in decent boots and Quaid in something like a Converse.
Slim1.75m said on 23/Sep/22
Hey Rob is Urban more likely over or under his listing.
Editor Rob
I think his range is narrowed to 6ft 1/2 plus or minus 1/4 inch.
If he falls out with that range, I would be surprised.
Slim1.75m said on 29/Jul/22
Looks more than half a inch taller than Ackles although he's had 1.85 on he's Resume maybe urban is a bit taller than listed.
Tall Sam said on 8/Jun/22
Always interesting to see how the camerawork on The Boys gives Urban a slight edge in angle over Jack Quaid. They are not far off from each other in height but Urban manages to look at least as tall on the show plus he’s in every way far more intimidating a presence. With his character Bill possibly getting superpowers outside 24 hours, he’s liable to be nearly as destructive and unpredictable as the despicable Homelander.
Vincent Caleb said on 8/May/22
Pine and quinto both give off slightly taller impressions IMO. In this photo with Rob he looks 6’0.25”
Slim 6'0.25 said on 7/Mar/22
I think Stephen amell would edge him out
Slim 6'0.25 said on 14/Feb/22
In between 183.5 & 184cm
Jayk said on 15/Jan/22
6 0 1/2 in some instances looked barley 6ish next to quaid in others looked to clear 6 mark.
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 7/Jan/22
in my opinion he's overlisted, Pine and Zach Quinto edge the ish out of this guy, and they're on the same height as him, but to be fair, Pine make Simon Pegg look barely 5'8 there, while in reality he's only a tad below 5'9 that just want a 5'10 body so bad.
TheDon91 said on 6/Jan/22
about 6'0.50"
Slim 6'1.75 said on 3/Oct/21
Reeves was a stronger 184 at peak

Pine and Quinto are a bit taller than this guy


185 is a lunchtime height
Jawilder said on 19/Sep/21
6’0.5” 👍. I think he is a fraction inch shorter than Pine and Quinto who are weak 6’1ers.
ammy said on 2/Sep/21
looks under 6' if Chris Pine is what he claims
Stinky 186 cm said on 29/Aug/21
6’ 0 1/2” is definitely possible for this guy I think he’s a little shorter though
Progking184 said on 6/Aug/21
@ChaosControl like me I think he can appear 6'0.75 sometimes, or close to 6'2 in shoes. He could be 184 at night though or slightly less.
Jram said on 5/Aug/21
Shorter than Pine
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jul/21
Jack Quaid could be 6ft1½ range in all honesty and can pass for 6ft2. Good few inches on his dad.
ChaosControl said on 29/Jul/21
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jun/21
184.5cm is arguable

Yeah I agree. He looks almost indistinguishable in height from Jack Quaid at times. Either Karl is 6’0 5/8 or Jack is more like 6’0.75 than 6’1
Editor Rob
footwear difference I think makes them look closer than reality. I could buy a 6ft 1 and change for Quaid
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jun/21
184.5cm is arguable
ChaosControl 6'2.5/189.2cm said on 4/May/21
Best part of the Boys hands down
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Mar/21
I think he'd measure similar to Keanu Reeves
QM6'1.5"QM said on 28/Feb/21
Wow! The average guess is perfect, guys ;)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Feb/21
berta, I think that's likely for him.
berta said on 20/Feb/21
i think he have been measured at both 185 and 184 . thats why i have a feeling that he could be 184,5 for most of the time.
Progking said on 14/Feb/21
Maybe my height 6'0.5 during the day and a few mm less at night
Vincent Caleb said on 12/Feb/21
That is a near 4 inch difference though Rob. Puts him at 6 foot-ish. Taking footwear into account puts him at 6’0.25” not 6’0.5”.
Visitor said on 11/Feb/21
Not sure at all... over 184? Should look much taller than this honestly.

This looks very comparable (correcting for posture slightly) and very similar to Benedict Cumberbatch, who's listed at 182 cm. Doesn't make sense.

Seems a bit like the Hollywood thing where 90% of men are "over 6 ft", and about 50% of those are actually a bit UNDER that mark.
slim 6'1 said on 22/Jan/21
His listing is spot on, no need for a change
Slim 6'1" said on 31/Dec/20
184 like Quinto and pine
FanzWrestler said on 29/Dec/20
Same height as myself. The 184-183 range. He looks 6'1 (185-186) in shoes. I remember in Doom he looked closer to 187/188. Due to the boots they wore but still great listing. Great actor too!
Andrea said on 14/Nov/20
The link doesn't seem to work...
Editor Rob
Andrea said on 14/Nov/20
How much do you think his hair adds, Rob? His low hairline I think gives the illusion of it being more than it is, but still, I'd guess him closer to 183 than 184 with you.
Editor Rob
I tried to find the closest photo where he has a 2-3mm hairstyle Click Here.

I think that gives a good idea, not huge amount of hair, but at least half an inch.
Jkiller said on 13/Nov/20
184cm (6'0.5) is very accurate.
Vsquad said on 19/Oct/20

Yeah its so weird how Jack Quaid looks taller than Karl in press shots, but on the show he looks shorter than him. I really do think there must be camera trickery going on because it doesn't make sense otherwise.

During press rounds Karl always wears boots and Jack always wears vans or converse, just like on the show. But yeah the height difference is suspiciously unlike it is [on the show].
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Oct/20
Jack Quaid is probably a more solid 6ft1 (185.5-186cm low) while Karl could still arguably be 6ft0¾
Tall Sam said on 16/Oct/20
Well, he is close to the same height as Quaid and does look sufficiently more imposing in physique, bearing and demeanor, he acts well enough as the type of guy to fly into a blind rage and beat someone to death.
grizz said on 14/Oct/20
Seeing him next to Quaid, 184 is Max.
Dude wore boots in The Boys and was taller than Quaid by a smidge. BUT Quaid wore Converse sneakers the whole time + camera angles that favored Urban (he is the menacing character of the two in that show,gotta look big and scary).
In press shots Quaid is comfortably taller even in Converse.
Shayz said on 11/Oct/20
Urban looks taller than Quaid in all scenes of the boys
Peter Sun said on 26/Sep/20
My initial thought for this guy's height is 6'1, he looks to be a lil bit shorter than the rock back in that movie. He appears to be a solid 6'1'' to me. So Imma go with that.
5'10guy said on 25/Sep/20
How tall do you think Laz Alonso is Rob ?
Editor Rob
Looks a couple of inches or so shorter than Karl...posture wise he's all over the place though, sometimes seems just a 5ft 10 guy, other times nearer 5ft 11 if he ever stands tall. I should really give him a page!
TheBat said on 20/Sep/20
Yeah he looks 6’0.5” consistently with weak 6’1” Zachary Quinto. In The Boys he certainly looks a lot taller but he wears boots in the show.
6'1boy said on 1/Sep/20
he looks 185 consistently next to jack quaid in the boys, because he is eye level with him the whole time, unsure how many of you have come to 184, looks legit 185cm to me.
Editor Rob
Quaid has thinner footwear on the show
kingcrimsn said on 29/Aug/20
I would've guessed 185, 184-184.5 seems fair.
Slim 6'1" said on 9/Aug/20
184 over 184.5
Slim 6'1" said on 7/Aug/20
184 or 184. if i had to get specific i would choose 184
Slim 6'1" said on 6/Aug/20
184 range
cluedo said on 1/Jul/20
Why is it does Rob typically look like he's almost hunched forward in these photos as tho he's giving away at least a 1.5 cm due to forward head posture. Does Rob have a short neck or is he actually 5'8 and change with this exact posture he poses in the photos? The actors he poses with usually always have better posture than him, so it seems he's giving away more height.

For this example, if we assume Rob has a worse posture and thus giving away more height, Karl is about 182 to 183 cm. But if Rob actually measures his stated height in this forward head posture then 184 cm for Karl.
Editor Rob
There's a fair proportion I would stand with decent posture, but a lot more than people realise I am dropping height.
Same with celebs, a proportion stand well, a proportion stand not so well!

But Urban is over 6ft in person for sure.
Vexacus said on 12/Apr/20
Accurate , over 6ft in Doom .
Emil said on 30/Mar/20
Perfectly solid tall guy. Listing seems very correct
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Mar/20
184-185cm is likelier than 183-184cm

Could look a legit 6ft1 in DOOM and first LOTR movie
Vsquad said on 25/Jan/20

I know he wore boots, but it didn't look like they gave him enough of an advantage to suddenly look taller than Jack Quaid. Since Jack is already 6'1 and a bit barefoot + a 1-1.5 cm shoe, Karl wearing boots would at best make him eye-to-eye with Jack. But instead he looked a full inch taller, which is bizarre.

And like I said, that's only on the show. IRL when they're doing promotion together, they're wearing the exact same footwear (boots vs converse) and Jack always looks taller than Karl. For example -

Click Here
Click Here

(Even if Karl stood up straighter in those, he wouldn't magically look taller than Jack like he does on the show)

At this point I assume the the camera angles are purposely making Karl look taller for the effect of his character. Or, maybe Jack is purposely slouching for the effect of his character lol.
6footTom said on 24/Jan/20

Karl Urban wore boots on The Boys while Jack Quaid wore maybe 0.5-inch flats.
Ben Bell said on 13/Dec/19
I think it’s camera angles.
Vsquad said on 13/Dec/19
@Ben Bell

Nice photo! You're raising your eyes just a tiny bit, but if you lowered them I think you guys would be height twins. However, you said Karl had a slight footwear advantage... so maybe there's a chance you measure a fraction taller.
Vsquad said on 8/Dec/19
It doesn't make sense... Karl easily edges out Jack Quaid on The Boys, but whenever the two of them are doing press for the show, Jack looks an easy 1.5 - 2 full inches taller... and Jack has footwear disadvantage on both occasions.

Either Karl is wearing lifts on the show, or the camera angles are deliberately working to make him look taller.
Ben Bell said on 8/Dec/19
I met him today, I’m 6’025 for comparison. I’d say we’re very similar height. He may have had a slight advantage with footwear Click Here
I’m a sloucher so made sure I stood straight A’s he had good posture.
Importer said on 4/Nov/19
Rob how tall did Karl Urban look to you in person. 183-184cm or 184-185cm
Editor Rob
Last time I seen him he had a boot on and I feel no less than 184, was very similar range to big lewis when he hit 184
Nik said on 19/Oct/19
The average guess justifies the listing!
Ethyn said on 17/Oct/19
1.84 m 👍🏻
Importer said on 18/Sep/19
Karl Urban next to Jack Quaid could look 187cm with boots on screen, but proportionally/physically isn’t anything more than 185cm. Looks no less than 184cm next to Anthony Starr whose probably using some enhanced footwear ( just a hunch ) in his Homelander outfit.
Nik Ashton said on 4/Aug/19
6’0.5” is possible though! 🏗🏢⛪️🏢🏫🏪🏢🏢!
Nik Ashton said on 4/Aug/19
@ Rob - How likely is 6’0.25”?
Editor Rob
I think the odds are greater he is 6ft 1/2 than as low as 6ft 1/4.

All those guys in Star Trek, Pine/Urban/Quinto can seem very close in height, I think if you measured them they'd not be that far apart.
Importer said on 2/Aug/19
I don't think his eye-level is as low as 171cm, if stood straight it'd be 173cm barefoot.
Piers said on 26/Jul/19
Urban has a new series out called The Boys. He co-stars with 6'1 Jack Quaid.

They've done a lot of press together so far, and Jack usually looks a solid inch taller than Urban. Its interesting that he maintains that difference though because he usually wears much flatter footwear than Urban.

In the actual show however, Urban looks taller in most of their scenes. Again, Jack still wears flat footwear compared to him though. At most Urban's character is wearing a 3 - 3.5 cm boot, so he technically wouldn't be taller than Jack regardless. Probably just camera angles of course, but still.
TheBat said on 25/May/19
6'0.5" or even 6'0.75" would be what I'd see Karl as. He has looked 6'1" in a lot of movies and some photos.
'Annonymous' said on 7/Apr/19
Actually, I'd say Karl looks like a typical 184 cm guy next to you, but he has at least a quarter inch footwear less than you. Rob, is there still a chance of that Karl could measure 6'0.75"?
Editor Rob
Last time I seen Karl (wearing a similar footwear as myself) he still seemed between 6ft and 6ft 1, I would rule out 6ft 1 and 6ft flat.
Lipkoskava said on 14/Mar/19

Not shorter than pine , so pine IS defenetly no taller than 184cm , Bana IS easily 3cm over both so at worst 6'1.75
GRIT said on 6/Mar/19
6'0.5" is right
Nik said on 12/Nov/18
6'0.25", as Rob has 0.25" more sneaker!
Bobby said on 11/Nov/18
He can pass for a solid 6'1.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Jul/18
Karl Urban is max 6'0 3/8 (183.8) because Rob did not put up 1/8 of his atual measurement up and mention he had fraction more shoe than Karl. That is literally 8mm needed to add on 6'0 (182.9).
MAD SAM said on 1/Jul/18
184 cm seems legit
Dann said on 3/Jun/18
Looks like Rob finally downgraded him. Not far enough though. If Pine is 6ft, or even 6ft0.5in then Urban is max 6ft tall (182.88), as the picture clearly shows...
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 24/May/18

Agreed, 6'0.25" for him since we now know he has 1/4" shoe disadvantage.
Zampo said on 22/May/18
I miss-typed my comment on the footwear discrepancy. Now knowing he was at 1/4 inch disadvantage. I still think the most he could possibly measure is 184 cm. I'm swaying towards 6'0.25. Remember this photo is likely taken in the late morning and he would most likely drop a few mm unless he is at a low (which is a possibility). I'm confident I would look a little taller than this in a photo with a 5'8 person.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 20/May/18
Looks a solid 6'0.5", but that depends on whether Karl had 1/2" less footwear than Rob. It's not specified exactly how much.
Editor Rob
A good 1/4 inch.
Zampo said on 18/May/18
Rob, height truly is a fascinating thing. Proportionally in this photo, I am virtually the same as Karl Urban, my mouth height about 163.7 cm, my eye-level 171 cm (this all at about mid-afternoon) yet according to both yourself and the general consensus (average guess), he generally seen as a 184 cm guy and here I am a flattish 6ft (182.7-9 cm). It really emphasizes the importance of eye-to-head level with mine being at around 11.6 cm. Oops, just noticed in the description he had a fraction more sneaker, maybe that's why...
Editor Rob
Well he did have a fraction less sneaker so I think above 6ft is likely for him.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Apr/18
At least 6'0 1/4 not under.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Mar/18
This has to be his low. I reckon he’d have someone like Cumberbatch by a season solid 1in at least
Wedd said on 24/Feb/18
Rob, what would you say his out of bed height is compared to Pine & Quinto? I feel like he drops more than Pine at least.

I think Pine and Urban look overall very close.

6 ft flat just like Rob's ruler shows in photo above. He has quite a small / short face which gives a taller impression. He looked tall in lord of the rings.

Slim 6' said on 7/Oct/17

Urban: 6'0.75"
Quinto: 6'0.75"
Pine: 6'0.75"

Final guess.
Editor Rob
they all look quite close at times, they can vary a bit, though Pine is insisting the six foot and not saying 6ft 1/2 or 'almost 6ft 1'.

josh jeffords said on 9/Oct/16
Has looked over 6 1 in movies but has also looked barely 6 hes got a rather odd build, he was shorter than the rock but not too much.
I think posture and his lack of athletic build make him look shorter.
Also rarely being the leading man he is likely forced to make little guys not look so little.
I think 6 1 with good posture and a suit of armor makes him look like an easy 6 2 3 viking.

what do you mean by "lack of athletic build"?
Slim said on 28/Sep/17
I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and say hes 6'1(185)

Hey rob again, sorry what I meant was what is his eye level is it 170 cm?
Editor Rob: 170-171 zone if you went with Karl as a solid 184cm range

His mid of eye level should be 172cm not 170-171cm. 171cm should be few mm under his eye level and 170cm almost the mid of his nose level. From head to his eye level should be 11.5-12cm not over 12cm as he had quite small head compare most of 6 footers.

Great kiwi actor and awesome height; I don't get how some don't think of 6 ft as being really tall. I reckon it's big especially if you're 184 cm tall.


Legit 6ft is a decent tall height in most countries, unfortunately it's a bit devalued due to an abundance of 5ft10 or 5ft11 people claiming 6ft. So now, many people won't see 6ft as that tall because of it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/17
Rob, could Pine be 6ft0¾?

I feel maybe he edges Karl. You could reverse them. I know Urban was originally at that mark
Editor Rob
Pine can pass for it at times...I still think maybe Quinto has a slight edge, but sometimes they all kind of look within a fraction.

Say if someone were 5'6 in the arvo where would they come upto on a 6'2 person?
Editor Rob
Redwing, typically you'd expect them to be about the mouth zone of a 6ft 2 guy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Dec/16
This could work also but no less
Rory said on 25/Nov/16
I think 6'0.5 is probably better. Looks a strong 6foot in the picture and with a quarter inch less footwear then you have 6'0.5. Add in the fact one of his agencies lists him at 184 and the case for a 6'0.5 listing is pretty compelling.
Redwing said on 24/Nov/16
Oh gummon rob, he's probably taller than cavill by a few mm.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 22/Nov/16
The original listing was slightly better, but 6'0.5" is fine too. I wouldn't go lower than that.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 20/Nov/16
Rob, whether I find a link to this page, Karl is listed 6'0.5". However, when I'm on this page, Karl is listed 6'0.75".

Is there a pending downgrade happening on this page?
Editor Rob
pages can get cached by your browser, intermediary ISP's etc, but he is 184 on the current version.
Jordan87 said on 31/Oct/16
6'0 Solid with Rob.
Sarah said on 27/Oct/16
Close to 6'1". PS I like the new height guide that appears when you highlight the photo!
josh jeffords said on 9/Oct/16
Has looked over 6 1 in movies but has also looked barely 6 hes got a rather odd build, he was shorter than the rock but not too much.
I think posture and his lack of athletic build make him look shorter.
Also rarely being the leading man he is likely forced to make little guys not look so little.
I think 6 1 with good posture and a suit of armor makes him look like an easy 6 2 3 viking.
Pierre said on 8/Oct/16
I have seen his shoes in web at this event i think he has discreet little lifts in the picture next to Rob and in some events.
For me he's in 5"11' range barefoot.
Pierre said on 30/Sep/16
Do you remember your shoes advantage approximatively ?(about 0.25 ,0.5, 0.75 inch?)
Editor Rob
a good 1/4 inch
Mark said on 30/Sep/16
Since Karl Urban had less sneakers than you Rob, he would easily measure 185 cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/16
Karl Urban: 184-185cm
Viggo Mortensen: 179-180cm
Odinson said on 3/Aug/16
Pierre, you're an imbecile, I'm a kid and I've bloody got better vision than you mate.... Karl Urbans a few inches taller than viggo Mortensen, you're a funny joker mate!!!! Hahaha
Pierre said on 29/Jul/16
Imo the height difference compared to Rob is around Karl's forehead(just over the eyebrows) if they have same shoes and same posture.Karl's forehead isn't very high (not strong forehead,see pictures"Karl Urban short hairs). Karl is about 181.5/182 cm imo.(Eric Bana- when around same shoes- is around the same height than Karl imo(see some pictures).
Odinson said on 22/Jul/16
He looks tall, he's about 4.75 inches taller than you.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jul/16
Rob, I think you have this guy nailed. He can look either of those.
Peter 179cm said on 18/Jul/16
I'm really confused with some of your listings,Rob...He looks max 5'11.75 range or around 182 in the picture,so nothing more than about 183 or 6'0 flat.Maybe you've given him a sneakers listing,Rob?
Editor Rob
184cm is very possible, as has been mentioned he was 184 on one agency, then another had him 185.
berta said on 15/Jun/16
he have a very small head for his height
Mark said on 10/Jun/16
6'1" no doubt if you don't count the footwear advantage.
Pierre said on 8/Jun/16
Ben Cumberbatch even with his advantage of shoes is 5"11' max in the picture with scale.The difference eye to eye without advantage is only 2 inches,he has probably a bigger forehead compared to Rob and Karl so he's around 179(and Rob has a better posture in the picture next to Ben than next to Karl).In the picture next to Karl,the difference eye to eye is around 3 1/2 inches:Rob 5"8',Karl 5"11.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jun/16
Just compare this photo to the one of Rob w/h Ben Cumberbatch. This guy has got less shoe over Rob while Ben has almost a half inch more shoe... and yet he's still comes out at least 1in shorter. A weak 6ft1 is more than fair. He's easily taller than 5ft11 range guys.
Pierre said on 4/Jun/16
Rob say he has a fraction more sneakers but Rob's neck make him lose more height than Karl's neck imo.Rob's posture seem more relaxed than Karl's posture,so finaly Rob is not advantaged in this picture,and probably a little disadvantaged.lets suppose he's not disadvantaged,only Karl's hairs are at 6"0' of the scale,he's a little under imo because big hairs.For me he's around 182 or a little under.Nice picture
Johno said on 25/May/16
He looks 5'11.75 there however he would probably average 6'0.33 or something like thus 6'0.25 would be a good height for him.
Jedi Master 5'11 said on 17/May/16
Edge of forehead at 5'10'', eye level 5'7''. Maybe 1.83m-1.84m. He's not exactly 6'1'' in that photo. Maybe 6'0.25". He's wearing shoes so maybe 6'0" or even right under that flat!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/May/16
I think B-C is fair. Not as convinced he'd be A.
CD said on 16/Apr/16

C is probably the most likely, I'm sure Rob agrees but he is busy so that's probably why he didn't say.
Editor Rob
about 184-5 range, either arguable.
Rory said on 15/Apr/16
C i think would be close, it would be a logical range to explain why his agency lists him both 184 and 185, and Rob thought he looked 184 or 185 too.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Apr/16
Rob, which would you choose?

A) 187.5cm/185.5cm
B) 187cm/185cm
C) 186.5cm/184.5cm
D) 186cm/184cm
E) 185.5cm/183.5cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Apr/16
184/185cm is more likely than 183/184cm
Johno said on 10/Apr/16
Moke, forget Jack, Rob is a Giant Killer.
Moke said on 5/Apr/16
Rob I think you should be considered notorious for making taller ppl look not that tall, but as a consequence putting them at a height that only can be considered a gesture of goodwill ;)
S.J.H said on 30/Mar/16
Atually from many premiere pictures i notice karl urban, pine and quinto all 3 of them physically looks 6'0 range. Maybe this could explain why 6'1 obama easily edge zachary quinto out by a full inch. Maybe the agency given 6'0.5 was a morning height for karl
kreyzig 6ft 3 said on 12/Mar/16
I think 6ft is a better shout for this guy.
NBAer said on 8/Mar/16
Looks 182 range above with less footwear,so i'd say 183 is fairer than 184-185 imo.
Johno said on 6/Mar/16
This listing is correct if Rob is 5'9 but at his lower height, he does not appear over 6'0 and the scale now testifies to that.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Feb/16
He gives a taller impression than Tom Wlaschiha
120 said on 26/Jan/16
When you look at the difference between him and David Tennant. David definitely looks a bit taller. I'd say Karl could be more 183 or 184 cm.
appe 6ft0.5 said on 2/Dec/15
Chris Pine is a flat 6ft while Karl Urban Could be 6ft0.5. Karl is clearly a little taller than Chris when they stand straight together.
Sammy Derrick said on 30/Sep/15
In the movie RED,his character is descrided by Bruce Willis' character as "Six one...cute hair..."
He looked 6'1 in the movie, but cute's not up for me to say...
SJH said on 26/Sep/15
Not account his hair he only look 5'11 with 5'8 rob. Maybe he was not prepare standing tall. But he still don't look quite over 6'0 even in photos with his co star. Maybe he bang on 184cm as agency list him but a morning height .
GP said on 18/Sep/15
Rob didn't he look 3 cm shorter than Schoenarts in The Loft? I think that 184 listing by his agency might be more true
Editor Rob
not seen the loft yet, but 184 is possible for him.
RUDE PIG said on 25/Aug/15
Am I the only one who thinks this guy should be the next Batman ?
Especially after playing Dredd .
Dejavu said on 21/Aug/15
Chris pine had an edge on him I thought.
Tom said on 15/Aug/15
Looks tall in the Bourne films. Would have gone with 6'1 but here looks closer to 6ft.
Josh1 said on 3/Aug/15
5'11.5 6'0 tops.
Modeus said on 30/Jun/15
more of a strong 6ft than a weak 6ft1 i think
OneNamePlease said on 23/Jun/15
I see 6feet , no more
eiam said on 18/Jun/15
6'0.75 for sure
pablo77bar said on 29/May/15
I am the same height as this guy.Maybe a bit taller because Rob is with more 0.8cm in footwear.
Solid 6ft 0.5,not 0.75
quan said on 17/May/15
rob has height nailed perfectly, give the man a thick pair of trainer and he can hit around the 6'2 range. very good actor as well.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Apr/15
He'd probably claim 6ft2...
Emil 183 cm said on 24/Jan/15
He looks around 183 cm when slouching a bit.... 184-185 cm is fair enough I think. Doesnt look taller than that though
Peyman 5ft 10.25in said on 7/Jan/15
6ft 0.25in for Carl
sorry but I can't see a 185 guy here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jan/15
Rob. how tall would you say Urban look beside Dwayne Johnson?

Click Here
Editor Rob
about 6ft 1, although Rock might be a bit looser, in the film with them I think around 6ft 2 with karl/deobai looked ok.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jan/15
I reckon 184-185cm range is spot on for Urban and Pine
Dmeyer said on 9/Dec/14
Rob to me this Guy when in good posture and equal footwear can look a haïr taller than 184cm pine , this should stop the people who say pine is over 184cm , as Karl himself could be just 184cm solid
Editor Rob
184 or 5, he could be either figure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Nov/14
Rob, do you think Urban would measure 187cm out of bed?
Editor Rob
I think he can look 184 or 185, out of bed 186-187 range.
Lebensdorf said on 20/Nov/14
A 5'8 guy like Rob should come up to about the brow line of a 6'1 guy. Rob is about an inch over Urban's brow line, but Urban is not standing pin straight. I think 6'0.75 is dead on.
John said on 14/Oct/14
Judd said on 13/Oct/14
6'0.5"-0.75" is spot on for him
Triplescrew said on 23/Sep/14
Kostas, don't be fooled by that dude's small head and lack of neck ( offense). He's clearly only 183cm at best; barely beats out 182cm Matt Smith.

Click Here

Urban's got an easy 2-3cm advantage over both of them.
Concerned 181 cm said on 15/Sep/14
Legit 6'0.5
Kostas said on 3/Aug/14
How can this guy be 1.84-85 and the guy here (Click Here) only 1.83? He looks taller.
Editor Rob
I think they look roughly similar in their photos, but Urban has fraction less footwear and maybe fraction less posture. He's in the 184 or 5 zone.
hyrda said on 17/Jul/14
6'0.75 looks spot on
184.9 on a bad day said on 16/Jul/14
I asked if he was 6ft 1 because he looks very tall on screen. Not much different than Paul Bettany. He is an awesome actor.
Mathew said on 15/Jul/14
Hmm I suspect more 184 cm than 185 but 1 cm is pretty tough to spot. It's interesting one agency only gave him the 184 though.
Alex 6'0 said on 1/Jul/14
Looks more of a strong 6'0 than weak 6'1. Looks a good 4 inches but no more. Id peg him at 6'0.25
Hypado said on 23/Jun/14
Looks 6'0 / 183cm, maybe 184cm
bot123 said on 22/Jun/14
no doubt above 6'0 barefoot and a little under 6'1. maybe hits above 6'1 mark when in footwear.
184.9 on a bad day said on 20/Jun/14
Full 6ft1(185.5) it is possible, Rob?
Editor Rob
I don't think he really looked that tall, either 184 or 5.
Arch Stanton said on 29/May/14
I saw the photograph and guessed 6'0.5 (184). But if Rob has a 1/4 more sneaker then 6'0'75 is spot on!
sxer3 said on 17/May/14
6'0.75 flat and hits the 6'1 - 6'2 range in footwear
TNT said on 9/Apr/14
I actually saw Karl at Megacon in Orlando a few weeks ago. He appeared to be around the 6'0" range or so, although I thought he might even be around 5'11". I was a distance away so it was harder for me to gauge.
kirill14 said on 24/Mar/14
since i'm 5'3" anything taller is great to me.but I would say at6'1", Karl is perfect.
Alex 6ft 0 said on 10/Mar/14
I think he looks more 6'0-6'0.25.
Freddy said on 1/Mar/14
strangely he looks under 6ft next to rob....but still, I think that a strong 6ft is accurate ( 6'1 is a bit exaggerated though)
Alex said on 2/Feb/14
If Karl is 6'0.75 then Vin is no taller than 5'11.
cole said on 1/Jan/14
6'0.5 or 6'0.75 is fair.
PLB said on 27/Dec/13
Karl Urban is tall enough. That means his height is never an issue in any of the roles he plays. Henry Cavill is about the same height and he is excoriated for being too short. It depends on role and audience expectations. For example, everyone thinks Stallone was too short while the shorter Robert De Nero gets a pass. But De Nero played a middle weight and Stallone played a heavyweight.
maximus said on 21/Dec/13 less...good height for Hollywood...doesn't need lifts....with regular shoes he is 6'1 to 6'2.
royce said on 15/Dec/13
looks 6'0.5 here, but look at him in pictures next to the near 5'11 viggo mortensen and karl had a noticeable 2 inches on him. I think 6'0.5 - 75 is right for karl.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Dec/13
Standing tall, he's not shorter than Pine.
Ted said on 22/Nov/13
Am just not seeing 4.5" of height difference in the photo Rob posted (plus the 0.25" footwear edge for Rob as noted). I suspect Rob's being a tiny bit misled by Urban's hair.

Karl seems like a 6'0" guy at very most. Maybe a bit less, since Rob seems to be leaning in with his head a bit.
wingwalker said on 22/Nov/13
looking at his Star Trek pictures is confusing - he seems to have an noticeable edge over Chris Pine in every group picture but with just two of them in the frame it's really hard to tell, but I'd think he is still marginally taller than Pine as he does seem to have a relaxed posture while Pine stands as tall as he possibly can with him.
jim said on 21/Oct/13
Looked a shade shorter than Pine in the Star Trek films, leading me to believe that Urban is about 6'0.5".
Rusty said on 17/Sep/13
He certainly looks a legit 6'2" on screen standing alone. yet next to 5'3" olivia thirlby in dredd looked strong 6'1" yet he looks weak 6'1" in this photo. i think the camera makes him look tall when in real life hes just tallish and he could be 184.5 cm and just is modest and rounds down
Rusty said on 4/Sep/13
I actually saw Chris Pine write that he was a little over six, more like a half inch or so. I think Pine is honest about his height.
Jack said on 30/Aug/13
The listing looks correct and he is a very handsome man. Karl Urban isn't so bad either
Lucas said on 29/Aug/13
6'0.75'' seems fair to me. He's 11 cm taller than Rob, considering rob has advantage for a quarter of a inche...good estmate, rob!
DMP said on 26/Aug/13
I just saw him now walking down the street in Vancouver. I'm 6'0" and he seemed at least 2" taller than me. He's a tall lanky guy
Rusty said on 14/Aug/13
He did look a good 6'1" in Dredd, he does look tall in most things he is in. Id say hes about 185cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jul/13
Sala's a much bigger guy, so maybe he just looks shorter than he really is?
Connor 184cm said on 26/Jul/13
Karl is 184cm he looks identically the same height as height challenger 10 karl i think maybe he could be 185.0cm in the morning perhaps?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jul/13
Rob, who struck you as taller, Urban or Sala Baker?
Editor Rob
sala could be 184 range I mean he claims 6ft 2 which is a bit of a stretch...don't want to upset sala though!
wartank said on 14/Jul/13
On the mark.. nuff' said!
Tim said on 5/Jul/13
6 ft 1/2 seems right, my height
Sam said on 25/Jun/13
Rob, I get the feeling that most of the celebs you meet in person tend to shrink in their listings by an inch...sometimes rarely even more. Few of them are taller than their listed. Do you feel like most of celebs round up?
Editor Rob
a good chunk i think are pretty accurate in what they say and a large chunk would round up a bit
gsbr said on 31/May/13
Whenever he gets face to face with Pine in Star Trek, he's taller. He has to be at least 6'0.75".
Balrog said on 22/May/13
6'0.25'' . Pine is hard to judge, he has a great posture and constantly looks over 6 foot.
Johno said on 17/May/13
He is shorter then challenger 10 so circa 6'0 could be fair.
johno said on 25/Apr/13
I would pretty confident in putting urban as a weak 6'0. He does to me judging by the above pic dip below 6'0 at some point of the day. If rob were to stretch then it would become blaitently obvious. He was also does look shorter then the 6'0.5 chris pine.

Urban 5'11.75
Emil said on 22/Apr/13
He's tilting his head which makes him look 6'0. He is as listed
space balls said on 2/Apr/13
i envy this guy,cause at 1.85cm,his height is the most ideal height for a men.and he sure does look like a legit one.
Dmeyer said on 23/Mar/13
Looks about 9cm taller than Rob so 182cm plus 0.6cm more shoes about 6 ft In the pic but is likey 184/185
truth178.5cm said on 16/Mar/13
I believe 184.5cm at the lowest, could be 185cm (6ft1). Looks tall, not 6ft or lower.
Johno said on 3/Feb/13
About 5'11.75 judging from that picture and taking rob's shoe advantage into consideration.
Joey said on 3/Feb/13
prime example of a 6feet man (183cm) no arguments here...but the 184/185cm claim is slighly exaggerated
185-186 said on 18/Jan/13
185 at peak
Dmeyer said on 10/Jan/13
I do believe hé is 184-185cm but at 173cm the top of your head should be at his eye level , 6'0.5-0.75 in Guy should have a 5'8-8.25 in eye level , you are like 2.5-3cm above how a 181cm Guy will look
Balrog said on 6/Jan/13
Urban I'm sure he's over 6 feet, 183-184 is his range, but Rob can you explain why Chris Pine looks taller than him in almost every pic when he claims 6 feet nothing? Pine also looks pretty close to Quinto's height, I mean if the guy claimed 6'1'' I'd believe it!
Editor Rob
they both look very close. Urban's agencies give him 184 and 185, he could be either really.
Yaspaa said on 26/Dec/12
Shame Dredd flopped.
Joey said on 16/Dec/12
solid 6 footer (183cm)...he is agood actor,.. would like to see him in more movies
Aragorn 5'11 said on 20/Oct/12
He's very close to 6'1. He's a little over an inch taller than Bruce Willis (5'11.5) and he's about 2 inches taller then Viggo Mortensen (5'11). And he's not that much shorter than Paul Bettany (6'3). Anything less than 6'0 for him is insane!
Ajax said on 17/Oct/12
Even if that is so the reality is that most people celebs or not will usually ad anywhere from .5-1.5" inches to their height so in essence, more actors and people will exaggerate their height instead
of being honest until they hit 6'2" and above.
MacReady said on 16/Oct/12
I also agree. Being height-obsessive I love this site, and especially appreciate the pics with the stars, which give us a better idea of true heights (unlike a certain film database). I find that, in general, actors upgrade their heights (as do a lot of ordinary men I've met), whereas posters on this site DOWNGRADE those heights, some ludicrously so. The people who proclaim: "So-and-so is 5'6''. Deal with it" etc are the funniest.
Ps I've been a Dredd fan since I was a kid (I'm 40), and I'm also an Urban fan, so when I heard that HE was a fan, and that he would only do the film if he KEPT THE HELMET ON I was chuffed. He's reassuringly tall/big too :~)
Dave618 said on 11/Oct/12
I agree, Brad, some people on this site automatically deduct almost an inch from whatever Rob has them listed. Some listings being challenged are valid, but some are challenged, it seems, based on the challenger's lack of self esteem.
Brad said on 10/Oct/12
Around 6'1" The listing is fair. Stop trying to downgrade everyone just because. It won't make you any taller.
balrog said on 10/Oct/12
Looks 6'0'' on the dot. 6'.25"" since Rob has ticker footwear.
Denis said on 6/Oct/12
Urban looks 6'0" beside Rob.
Dmeyer said on 3/Oct/12
There is an agency call central casting in burbank i think , all you havé to do is pay 20-25 dollars and take à pic and you CAN be in Movies with all celebs There is à smaller casting called Jeff olan , also sande alese casting she makes all Spielberg movies thats How i got to work with Cruise and hanks
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 2/Oct/12
Rob, thanx. I was pretty built when you had met me but that was over 3 years ago. But since then I had bulked up to 205-210lbs but this summer I ended up cutting down to 184-185 and now bulking slowly again. See my weight goes up and down kinda often depeding on my diet etc. I may look into it
Johnnyfive said on 30/Sep/12
I thought this dude was 6'2. Looks between 184 and 185 so this listing is spot on for Urban.
