Here's wishing Mark Strong a great 57th Birthday!

It’s amazing that Mark Strong’s acting agency listed him as 6’1” bearing in mind that Rob and 31 other voters offer him 6’1.5”! 💪!
Johan123 said on 1/Jan/20
Isn’t over 6-1, and could be a fraction shorter.
His strong ‘dangerous guy’ presence makes him seem a bit taller.

Behind the scenes of green lantern. Probably the first and last time Mark Strong wore elevators xd. Go 24:40 :)
They look like custom-made shoes, how much height they add I don't know, but it was enough to look taller than reynolds easily enough!
Importer said on 22/Sep/19
None related height comment : Great bone structure overall. He’d be fitting for a role like Hitman’s Agent 47.
said on 17/Sep/19
Rob do you have the link to where Mark's agency says he 6' 1"?
It's been in casting directories for years.

I've seen him up close at an event and he was a bit taller than me I felt and I'm 6ft0.75. I think the 6ft1.5 listing is very fair, at a bare minimum he is 6ft1 and at most I'd say 6ft1.75, didn't look a full 6ft2 guy but seemed more than 6ft1. I think 6ft1.5 is going to be very close to what he measures. Looks good for his age too he's 56 this year but could pass for late forties.
Importer said on 10/Jul/19
@Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 I see. I wasn't aware that he claimed 6'2.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990
said on 10/Jul/19
@Importer He did not list himself and claim 6'1 it is the agency listed him 6'1, Mark claim 6'2 but he is def on the 187cm range not big 6'2 not flat 6'1.
@Oliver Allen There is pushing 1.75" between Levi and Mark Click Here
not 3" in real. Click Here
Tilt head up will help gain 1" taller looking at face level. Levi is a strong 6'3 1/4 guy maybe 6'3 3/8 under list by Rob. So Mark Strong can't be 6'0 this low more like 6'1 5/8.
Importer said on 21/Jun/19
Chances are that Mark himself is aware he measures below the 6'2 mark barefoot at a low, hence why he's written off 6'1. An honest decision.
Oliver Allen said on 16/May/19
When compared with Zachary levi in shazam he looked 3 inches shorter than levi. So I think he is more of 6 ft tall.
Importer said on 12/May/19
6'1 5/8 is a better listing than 6'1 1/2. Looks more 187cm than 186cm on screen. His Slim build gives a 6'2 impression.
Junior Hernandez 1990
said on 11/Apr/19
@Dejavu Click Here
Look close to 2" shorter than Levi but i disagree Mark being 6'1 because he does look at least this listing next to 6'1.75" Tom Hiddleston and they both look merely they same height so there is tiny chances Levi is closer to 6'3 1/2 like 6'3 1/4-3/8".
Dejavu said on 7/Apr/19
Looked closer to 6’1 next to Zachary Levi who is 6’3. Looks nothing close to 6’2.
PAN BERRY said on 4/Dec/18
I would say he’s more 6’1.75” or little over 187 cm
said on 13/Jul/18
Okay Rob, with the new eighth fraction listings in play I've revised a new list. Again like before these are just considerations, not for a minute suggesting ALL of them should be done.
6ft1⅜(186.4cm): Prince Harry, Pierce Brosnan, Errol Flynn, Daniel Day Lewis, Dennis Leary, Jim Caviezel, Garrett Hedlund, Logan Paul, Eddie Hall, Eric Balfour, Malik Yoba, Bob Gunton, Dale Winton, Andrea Bocelli, Lee Marvin, Vincent Cassel, Will Smith, Corin Redgrave, Josh Hopkins
6ft1⅝(187cm): Mustafa Shakir, Jack Charlton, Elon Musk, Boris McGiver, Nicolas Lyndhusrt, James, LeSure, Nic Westaway, Norm MacDonald, Chris Noth, Corey Stoll, Mark Strong, Jay Karnes, D'Lo Brown, Novak Djokovic, Matthew Fox, Powers Boothe, Brian May, Victor Mature, Brian Van Holt, Kevin Kline, Jeff Bridges, Ray Romano, Ed Lauter, James Coburn, Russell Brand, Mahershali Ali, Jerry, Orbach, Fred Willard, Harry Kane, Red Skelton, Mo McRae, Jeremy Irons, LL Cool J
All listings have a range in which you could argue a bit above or below, sometimes it might be quite small, other times half inch up or down. In those case mentioned, it is concievable they might measure around those marks.
I am sparing though with 1/8ths.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 29/Jun/18
6'1 5/8 (187) same like Tom Hiddleston and Mark look nearly 1.5" shorter than Legit 6'3 Sacha Baron Cohen.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jun/18
I think 187-187.5cm range at his low. Looks closer to 6ft2 than 6ft1
Tall Sam said on 18/May/18
He could be that rare 6'1.75" guy, but a full 6'2" is doubtful IMO after seeing with Baron Cohen and maybe a strong cm taller than Colin Firth. However, he can look pretty much the same height as Ryan Reynolds.
mante said on 28/Apr/18
he is perfect 6'2.
Josh Jeffords said on 28/Apr/18
Think listing is perfect this guy is tough always thought 6 foot but when he is close to average or even aboves.
It is clear he is a tall man 6 1 and some half feels right.
He often has weird.."impeccable" posture thats why he can look taller than reynolds a fairly loose guy.
Gotta wonder is he bald or shave his head I've seen him with hair he looks more normal..
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Apr/18
Average guess 6ft 1.61in (187cm) sounds legit now. I would throw out 6'1 5/8th for Mark.
Sonnecker said on 9/Apr/18
He's taller than 186 cm. Baldness could fake a little his height, but he looks a good 188 cm at sight....
Tall Sam said on 2/Mar/18
@Dream(5'9.5"), the difference between Strong and Baron Cohen still looks around a inch between them there and more in a lot of shots.
said on 2/Mar/18
Mark Strong looks similar to 6’3”-6’3.25” Sacha Baron Cohan
Junior Hernandez said on 1/Feb/18
6'1 5/6th 187.5cm
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 11/Jan/18
Give a 187cm upgrade.
said on 18/Dec/17
Rob, you should look at recent photos of him w/h Firth
He looks 1in taller in most of them. Unless Colin is has now dipped 6ft1 I don't see how 6ft2 is a stretch for this guy...
Editor Rob: I'm not sure from that set there is really much between them
Slim 185 said on 20/Nov/17
IN need of a slight upgrade imho. 6’2” is a better listing, he towered Egerton in kingsman and has even matched up to Reynolds.
said on 9/Nov/17
Mark is 6'2 it's just that he is completely bald a bit loose in posture to give shorter impression. Def not just 1/4 taller than 6'1.25" Gerard Butler. In RocknRolla look 2cm difference. No whatever posture and shoes issues. Just highlighting.
Slim 6' said on 21/Oct/17
He's definitely closer to 6'2" than 6'1". I'm 99.9% sure about that.
khelgor said on 13/Oct/17
@mark : taller than tom hiddleston, i mean are we looking at the same picture lol ? wtf he is shorter
Slim 6' said on 10/Oct/17
Weak 6'2" tbh.
said on 7/Oct/17
He can look Slightly taller than Ryan Reynolds though this could be more of a footwear advantage.
I won’t be using the other pictures because it’s not only in Mark’s favor, but it shows Reynolds slouching.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 7/Oct/17
Mark Strong and Elizabeth Debicki really do somehow make Tom Hiddleston not look the full 6'2", and more of a 187 CM tall guy (it's not like Tom is standing with a disadvantaged posture by either of them as well). It makes me think that both could use a slight upgrade, with Tom remaining at 6'1 3/4".
Slim 6' said on 7/Oct/17
Rob, do you think mark has pulled a Jack Coleman?
He's easily 6'1.75" /187.3 CM.
said on 7/Oct/17
Slim has a point. Although this picture is very weird.
I agree with Slim that Mark (NOT ME!) falls into the 187 cm area!
Slim 6' said on 6/Oct/17
For starters I got my data from the new kingsman film, he definitely looked 187 area.
In the photo mark is standing with looser knees as Henry stands with his knees straight, so in a nutshell Henry has a posture advantage. Henry being a lot more muscular can stand with military posture for longer than mark ever could.
Anonymous said on 6/Oct/17
i actually thought colin firth was slightly taller than him when i saw kingsmen
said on 6/Oct/17
Mark Strong is a bald guy, which might be part of the reason as to why Henry Cavill seems taller in a lot of those photos. However, he still doesn't appear taller than Henry here while being closer to the camera (Henry doesn't even seem to be standing with impeccable posture here like he normally does either):
He doesn't have a footwear advantage either:
I do believe that Mark is a solid 6'1 3/4"/187.3-4 CM guy (with Henry Cavill being near 6'1"), but it does make me wonder as to how Henry edges him. Is there something that I'm not seeing here?
Slim 6' said on 5/Oct/17
Defiantly in the 187 range.
Willes188 said on 23/Sep/17
6'1.25-6'2 like Reynolds? Lol
said on 22/Sep/17
He can also look over 6'2" with 5'10" Jude Law despite having poor posture.
Here, mark strong can look virtually 6'2.5" with Cumberbatch.
Finally, he manages to look taller than Tom Hiddleston in one picture.
Of course, it's deceptive, but Mark Strong is more of someone who can be closer to 6'2" than 6'1" really.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 22/Sep/17
@Slim we both know that he's not the full 6'2". However, he matches Tom Hiddleston and 'some times' edges Hiddleston.
At the same time, I can really see 6'0.75" for Cavill if you see him with Mark Strong!
Slim said on 18/Sep/17
Guys, if mark was really 6'2", why would his agency list him at 6'1(185)!? 6'2" is the ideal height and it shouldn't be downplayed imo, I guess I'm convinced this guy is 6'1.25"-6'2". As he looked really similar to Ryan Reynolds.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Aug/17
Yeah I agree with that, Mark
Andrew said on 8/Aug/17
He looks tooks taller than Ryan Reynolds for some reason.
said on 21/Jul/17
6'1" flat is impossible. I would say 6'1.75" since he edged out Gerard and Colin Firth.
However, I do think Cavill deserves an upgrade to 6'0.75". What do you think, @Rampage?
said on 4/Jul/17
6ft1 flat is too low for him. He's clearly taller than Colin Firth and Gerard Butler.
I can't remember if I seen the show, but he did seem to appear once with Alastair Petrie
S.J.H said on 23/Jun/17
Colin firth look more on 184cm nowadays. Mark strong is more like solid 2cm taller so 6'1.25 hardly go higher since ryan reynolds stuck here 6'2.
Slim 181 cm
said on 21/Jun/17
He doesn't look great. Strong 6"1
said on 8/Jun/17
I would argue 6'1.75", but this picture is scratching my head...
berta said on 8/May/17
3 cm taller than colin firth. i believe this guy could be 188 cm tall. not taller but minumim 187 probably a really storng 187 guy ore weak 188 guy
shiva182cms said on 11/Apr/17
@ Rob 6'1.75 looks spot on For Mark strong he looks minimum 6'1.5 and almost all the time near 6'2
S.J.H said on 3/Apr/17
6'1 is real height and 6'2 is mark actig claimed height. Colin firth is 6 foot and benedict cumberbatch is 5'11
6'1-6'1.5 Guy said on 30/Mar/17
It looks like 187-188 cm.
Most likely, he is 6'1.5 or 6'1.75.
said on 9/Jan/17
Mark Strong wore 2(?) inches lifts in Green Lantern, that's why he looked taller than Ryan Reynolds who is a solid 6'2"-6'2.25"
Mark Strong is 6'1.75"- 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Oct/16
Mark Strong: 187-188cm
Ryan Reynolds: 188-189cm
S.J.H said on 28/Oct/16
No he look shorter than ryan reynolds. Don't judge by half picture and bad camera angles
Andrew said on 20/Oct/16
He looks taller than Ryan Reynolds so I'd put him at 188-189cm.
S.J.H said on 3/Oct/16
Sacha Baron cohen make him look 6'1.25
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/16
10% - 185/186cm

40% - 187/188cm
20% - 188/189cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Apr/16
Rob, where would you put this guy?
Andrea said on 19/Mar/16
Sacha Baron can certainly make him look not much more than his agency listing...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/16
No, 6ft1 flat is too low for him. He was taller than Colin Firth and Gerard Butler (both are/were 6ft1-1½ range themselves). I'd say he's more likely to measure the full 6ft2 than 6ft1. Somewhere in the 6ft1½-2 zone. This current height could be his low.
Len said on 11/Mar/16
6'1" seems correct, agree with the acting agency figure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Feb/16
Well then, Rob maybe give him an extra fraction?
You said you're not convinced he'd measure the full 6ft2 but he looks 187cm most time and sometimes 188cm. He never looks 6ft1 flat though
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Feb/16
Well then, Rob maybe give him an extra fraction?
You said you're not convinced he'd measure the full 6ft2 but he looks 187cm most time and sometimes 188cm. He never looks 6ft1 flat
said on 2/Feb/16
Rob, maybe 6ft1¾ is probably the safer bet?
Looking at photos, he more than just edges Colin Firth. He looks 1in taller if not more! He's also looking bang on the same as Ryan Reynolds who most agree is the most is at least 6ft2 and possible a fraction over...
Editor Rob: at times he can look anywhere in 186-7 range, on a good day even 6ft 2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jan/16
Don't know why he claims 185cm when he's clearly taller.
Sam said on 2/Nov/15
Hard to defend 188 cm next to Sacha Baron Cohen, Strong looks just about 2 inches shorter. However he does look even with Ryan Reynolds who can look a solid 6'2" fairly often.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Oct/15
I think 188cm isn't unlikely.
Willes190 said on 25/Oct/15
Yes, Mark Strong is a solid 188cm, i don't know why his acting agency listed him at 185cm?
Sean73 said on 7/Oct/15
Rob,this guy is a strong 6'2" possibly 6'2.5". He needs an upgrade.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jun/15
Closing in on 6ft2.
Rob, maybe he's the same as Tom Hiddleston?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jun/15
Rob, he's taller than Colin Firth and Gerard Butler
said on 31/May/15
We need to upgrade him to 6'2" at least maybe even more. It is rare that actors claim less than they actually are but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen. I think Mark Strong is the exception.
[Editor Rob: anywhere between 6ft 1-2 range, but a full 6ft 2 I can't see that.]
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM
said on 24/May/15
He also edges out Tom Hiddleston here:
(it's at the bottom of the page, and they have identical posture in it. I'm also taking into account that Tom Hiddleston's hair appears to add a good 1-2 inches in the photo).
He needs an upgrade.
said on 9/May/15Click Here
with Ryan Reynolds who 188 sm looks like a bit taller that Reynolds,who will explain me ?
JJF said on 30/Apr/15
His agency probably listed him slightly lower so that he had more chance of getting roles back when he was a C-grade star.
Actors auditioning for supporting roles in Hollywood will often downgrade if theiy are tall otherwise they get passed over because they would dwarf the leading A-listers.
Case in point: Pitt 'went' from 5'10 in the 1980's to 6' on his 'resume' once he became and A-list star.
teej said on 6/Apr/15
I believe he is the exact same height as me, 187cm seems right. He's Probably a 6'2 in the morning. Dont blame him for claming 6'2. Hell even I do sometimes, not gunna lie, it sounds better :P
said on 3/Feb/15
But Rob, is that actually his claim?
He rarely looks that low
[Editor Rob: actors usually know what height is on their own resume]
said on 27/Jan/15
Did he claim 6ft2? He doesn't look 6ft1.5 as rob listing gives
[Editor Rob: no he's down as 6ft 1 on his agency.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jan/15
"Mark Strong's height is 6ft 1¾in (187cm)"
Rob, maybe the 'weak' 6ft2 club could do with another member?
Sam said on 5/Jan/15
In The Imitation Game, I think a 1.5 inch advantage looks pretty accurate on the difference between Strong and Benedict Cumberbatch. Could you add that to the top, Rob? Strong was very good at the cutting one-liners in it. Glad that Strong isn't the stage name he picked for himself but the angelicized version of his Italian last name (Salussolia) that his mother gave.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Nov/14
Judging by those pictures Strong is 6ft1¾-6ft2 and Firth 6ft1-6ft1¼
said on 10/Nov/14
Rob, do the pictures of him with Firth serve as any proof that he might be 6ft2?
[Editor Rob: no I don't think it's proof as I think he can look shorter than charles dance who is more 6ft 2 range today.]
Lebensdorf said on 9/Nov/14
He seems taller than Colin Firth. Taller than him in Tinker Tailor by about an inch. I would say 6'2.
Andrea said on 8/Nov/14
No doubt he can look 6'1.5 but have you seen him with Sacha Baron Cohen, Rob? Sacha does look noticeably taller, despite having floor and shoe disadvantage!!! Ok, they're mostly walking photos but it's hard to believe there's just 1.5 inch between them. Mark at 6'1.5 can make Sacha look a big 6'4 guy but i guess we should probably wait for their movie and see if there are better scenes of them together. What do you think?
said on 4/Nov/14
Also, Strong has a slight edge on his friend Colin Firth, who is also listed at 6'1.5" but I'm guessing is more a 6'1"-6'1.25" guy who rounds up to a self-claimed 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Oct/14
I wouldn't hesitate to give Sacha Baron Cohen a strong 6ft3, if not 6ft3½(192cm).
Sam said on 29/Oct/14
It's hard to comprehend what's going with Strong's height, he looked similar or even edged out Ryan Reynolds in pictures but that one with Baron Cohen he looks around 3 inches shorter...however, at times Cohen really seems more like a weak 6'4" or at least 6'3.5".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Oct/14

If this listing is true, then sacha baron cohen is at least 196. Click Here

You have Sasha Baren Cohen as 6ft3, Looks more than a 1.5 inch difference here

He only looked a bit shorter than Max von Sydow in Robin Hood. This looks about right.

Rob, who do you think is taller Mark Strong or Jim Broadbent in their prime?

If he's 6'1 flat, then there's a good amount of celebs who should have serious downgrades... 6'1.5 I could agree with, maybe 6'1.75.

Someone could post the picture please? thanks
jtm said on 10/Sep/13
6'1.5 is accurate. could even be 6'2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Sep/13
@averagegiant:Those agency listings aren't great. They can both undermine and embellish height.
185cm is definitely too low. The absolute lowest this guy could be is 187cm.
averagegiant said on 6/Sep/13
if his agency says 185cm how is he 187? I thought they always, and I do mean always, round up. Maybe not.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Aug/13
6ft1.75in/187cm is a fair compromise since he can appear both 6ft1.5 and 6ft2.
But, he's never claimed height so who knows.
Put it this way, he edges out Colin Firth and Gerard Butler who are both 186cm.
Lurk said on 24/Aug/13
I like how every actor who looks marginally taller than their stated height are automatically upgraded, while most who look shorter than their stated heights are given "the benefit of the doubt". Why is this?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/13
Rob, maybe 6ft1.75in is on the money since he can appear both 187cm and 188cm?
said on 18/Jul/13
I know the previous picture with Reynolds has an angle favoring Strong, this one seems of a more even perspective and Strong still looks taller than Reynolds. I think Strong's a solid 6'2". Any change in opinion, Rob?
[Editor Rob: he can look 188 yeah, but 187 also]

the camera angle put him look 2" taller than ryan reynolds. in fact both are not 6'2 in real. they were closer to 6'1-6'1.5

He appears over one inch taller than 6 ft 2 in Ryan Reynolds.

Mark always looked easily 6'2.5/6'3 on screen atleast to me.I think he is absolutely nothing below 6'1 as his lowest height,and is more like 6'2+/- tall dude,always looked it.

a strong 6'1 in reality can look 6'2 in screen and fooling people look 6'3 in big boots/heeled shoe. this guy look physically 6'1.3 at best. he was taller than gerlad butler who look as tall as bradley cooper(physically 181-182cm). so he could't be much more than 6'1. in body of lies mark had fake 6'0 leo di caprio by clearly 2", had to mention leo in obvious heeled boots and mark regular dress shoe.
chameleon, trust me. strong is 6'1. he came 187cm morning i would't be suprise.
Chameleon said on 21/Oct/11
He looks very tall in The Guard, you would've guessed 6'5.
187cm sounds good to me. But he might only be 185cm?? Interesting lolz.

i watch twice rocknrolla notice an accurate height agency given mark strong looks solid 6'1,
other co-star was:
gerald butler 6'0.5
idris elba 6'2.5 (solid 2inch on gerald)
tom wilkinson 6'0 on nose
tom hardy 5'9.25
toby kebbell 6'0 on nose (listed everywhere 6'2 ultra bs.)
karel roden 5'11.75

i would say this listing is correct. 6ft 1.5 is perfect for him.

Rob has this guy even claimed a height?
[Editor Rob: on his agency cv he is 6ft 1]
Sam said on 29/Jun/11
I think that this is a guy who downplays his height a bit. He almost always looks a proper 6'2"
Chuck said on 28/Jun/11
Wow I was surprised at how tall he looked in Green Lantern. He looked .5 of an inch to 1 inch taller than 6'2" Ryan Reynolds. I say Mark looks 6'3". Surprised me a lot because I thought he was shorter in Sherlock Holmes.

He still wouldn't appear that much taller though
said on 26/Jun/11
He's in sneakers, has no hair and looks taller than Ryan Reynolds. Nice find, Tyler. There is no way Reynolds is under 6ft2.
Rob this has to be 188cm at the very least?
[Editor Rob: he could have a little camera advantage in that shot]
Candyman said on 25/Jun/11
In press photos the difference is even more apparent. He looks at least an inch taller than Reynolds in conferences side by side.
Candyman said on 25/Jun/11
Looked a bit taller than Ryan Reynolds in Green Lantern consistently in multiple scenes. Had to have been about a half inch or so, but of course it could have been special effects.

Looks 6'2.5"-6'3" here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/11
More 6ft1.5 to 6ft2. He's easily edging out Gerard Butler who himself may be 6ft1.5. 187cm is the very least you can give this guy.
dmeyer said on 3/Jun/11
in the movie he looks 1.5 in over dicaprio , in the premiere he looks 2 in so 6 ft 1.25 to 6 ft 1.5 in is good not 6 ft 2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/May/11
6ft2 on the nose looks more likely
Mifty said on 16/Mar/11
Strong did an appearance in L.A. last month to support "The Way Back" (terrible movie, unfortunately) and looked easily 6'3" in sneakered feet to me. He is very lean, even for an actor (well, less lean than plain skinny), so that may make him look a little taller than he is. But not under 6'2" in any event, I'd say.
flash_of_eden said on 2/Feb/11
I find it hard to believe anything under 6'2", he's got at least an inch on 6'1" Tom Wilkinson.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jan/11
6"2 on the dot isn't impossible
5'7.56 said on 22/Jan/11
Rob, this guy's height difference with Vin Diesel seems clearer than that between Vin and Vaul Walker. i'd say he might be 6'2.25 on a good day.
Sam said on 3/Jan/11
Back in Fever Pitch, he looked quite close in height (maybe just a smidge taller) to Colin Firth.
krazy krippled! said on 2/Jan/11
maybe a tad more than 6'2.

I spoke briefly with Mark Strong at ComicCon (job-related), and I would say he's far taller than 6' 1.5" -- 6'3"-6'4" is more the range. (Exceedingly nice man, also.) I don't imagine it's unheard of for very tall actors, particularly those who are not leading men, to revise their height downward on a resume.
said on 6/Dec/10
Rob is 6"2 a possibility?
[Editor Rob: in the morning, but afternoon I wouldn't guess so]
TruebloodFan said on 29/Nov/10
yep. this guy is big and this listing is probably correct. built like 6ft3 at least though. I agree he looked 6ft4 in kickass.
ahhh said on 6/Nov/10
he looked 6'4" in kickass
he was taller than all of his associates
Hugh 190cm said on 13/May/09
6ft3ish in RocknRolla. Strong 187cm minimum.
Hugh 190cm said on 9/May/09
Butler looks 186cm to me. I'd say Mark Strong is 187cm-188cm then.
tim said on 18/Apr/09
not 2 inchs taller than butler. maybe 1. but bare in mind butler had a very laid back posture in rocknrolla.
bobo said on 2/Apr/09
If his agnecy says 185. I am guessing this is accurate.
All the pics suggest same height as Gerry Butler. Look at the speech they gave together at the Empire awards. Bang on the same height.
Eugene said on 6/Mar/09
If to be more attentive, you will see that Craig is a step closer to the camera in the photo.. As we all know it makes people look taller.. What is the conclusion?...
said on 21/Feb/09
Rob, have you ever upgraded a celeb on this site by more than half an inch??
[Editor Rob: I'm sure I've done that a few times.]

6'3" in RocknRolla. Looked 2 inches taller than Butler.
Hugh said on 11/Jan/09
maybe 187cm. But he doesn't quite look 6ft2. He's a big guy sure. But the full 6ft2 looks a bit too much.
Zach #2 said on 10/Jan/09
Hugh, DC wears lifts thats for sure, the guy can look 5'9-6'0 most of the times. Mark Strong is defintaley a tall dude.
Hugh said on 6/Jan/09
I'm not sure if he's quite the full 6ft2 after seeing these pictures with Daniel Craig.
Zach #2 said on 3/Jan/09
change please!!!, he's a solid 6ft 2", that's why he looks 6ft 3" in movies.
Hugh said on 4/Dec/08
Hugh said on 4/Dec/08
This is spot on. I seriously think Firth isn't 187cm.
DMEYER said on 1/Dec/08
EVEN CONSIDERING HE IS 187 LEO LOOKS BARELY 5 FT 11 AT THE PREMIERE PICS
DMEYER said on 1/Dec/08
thank you rob 187 SEEMS MUSH CLODER TO HIS HEIGHT
said on 30/Nov/08
this is the one listing were rob might not be right in premiere pics he looks a easy 2.5 IN TALLER THAN DICAPRIO MORE LIKE 3 IN ANYTHING UNDER 187 STRONG LIKE 6 FT 1.75 WOULD BE NUTS PLUS ROB HIMSELF SHOWS A PIC FROM FEVER PITCH WERE HE LOOKS 1 CM TALLER THAN 187 FIRTH THIS GUY NEED A SERIOUS UPGREAT BY LIKE 2 OR 3 CM
[Editor Rob: 6ft 1 is from his resume, although sometimes they don't list 1/2's, but yes 6ft 1.5 is something nearer.]
Hugh said on 23/Nov/08
He's clearly taller than Colin Firth. 6ft2 at least.
Hugh said on 2/Nov/08
Looks barely an inch taller than Craig.
said on 1/Nov/08
He needs to be upgraded to at least 6'1.5'' Rob. He's the same height as Gerard Butler and his head is shaved in this pic.Click Here
Hugh said on 17/Oct/08
In Fever Pitch he looked at least an inch taller than Colin Firth.

Random Person said on 25/Sep/08
In Rocknrolla he looked at least an inch taller than Johnny Quid who is apparently 6'2" and at least 2 inches taller than Gerard Butler 6'1.25" here. I don't see that they would have mae him appear taller for any reason, and all shoes were probably similar. I can't see he is any less than 6'3".
Jerome said on 10/Sep/08
Yeah, tallest bloke except that huge Russian dude!
Zach said on 7/Sep/08
Just watched Rocknrolla, and he looked just a bit taller than Gerard Butler(6ft 2"), both very lanky blokes
my guess he's a 6ft 2.5", barefoot, he looked 6ft 3/4" in the movie due to shoes.
and his slim figure makes him look even taller. he was probably the tallest bloke in the movie!!!!
Anonymous said on 28/Oct/07
6'1 is his real height. He appeared in lots of British theatre shows, where the agencies get the actors true height.
Since he is appearing in Hollywood now, I expect him to start putting on a few cms to his height, but I will stick with the 6'1.
Paul Sabulis said on 12/Jun/07
Yeah Mark looks taller than 6ft 1in. He towers over 5ft 10 1/2ins George Clooney in Syriana, fair bit taller than Colin Firth & Ray Winstone too in Tv & movies they've both been in.
Rockfeller said on 14/Apr/07
Yea on the Jonathon Ross Show he was a bit taller but i think Ross is a 6 footer, 6ft zach braff was on the show a while back and braff seemed taller for some reason.
Mr D said on 13/Apr/07
Was taller than (6ft 1.5inch) Jonathon Ross on his show tonight?
dmeyer said on 18/Dec/06
looks over 185 in those pics like 188 cm
