Frank2: Ever seen Mark Wahlberg by any chance?
Source said on 15/Jun/09
I agree with you lugano.
Mikew said on 13/Jun/09
Rising: Generally speaking, I agree with your sentiment about not placing too much emphasis on one photo. However, when you have a big star who walks around wearing Stallone like boots everywhere he goes these days, and you are confronted with a perfect "pre-superstar" photo, it seems to me that such a photo would be more relevant in determining his height. That he obviously "looks" taller these days than he did in the photo with his brother only serves to reinforce the relevance of the older photo.
leonari said on 12/Jun/09
Mikew: Nobody gives Mark below 5'7". Yo are the only one..
Brad said on 12/Jun/09
5' 7.5". Glenn said 5' 8.5" to 5' 9" to justify getting get owned. He's getting Celtic'd by Marky. Glenn says Sly wakes at 5' 10.75 on this page. Somebody give him a rag to wipe that line off.
lugano said on 11/Jun/09
He looks pretty tall in this picture with Kate Moss, at least 5'9-5'9.5.
Click Here
Maybe he was wearing lifts, and he is closer to the camera, but i think he is around 5'8.5-5'9
Mikew said on 11/Jun/09
Ah, no Leonari, I believe you have posted more bull here, including your latest post. Anything under 5'7 ridiculous? Well, considering that you couldn't tell me the last time you saw Wahlberg without lifts, and considering that he looks unusually short in the pics where we know he was liftless (i.e., basketball pic with brother), not to mention how short he looked in the movie Fear (before he became big star and discovered that he needed "help"), I think stating that he is likely under the height at which many people on this site thinks he stands (i.e., 5'7") is hardly "bull."

matt damon looked 2 inches taller than mark in the departed
lexi said on 10/Jun/09
Defender, the girl in the video looks like his longtime girlfriend, Rhea Durham. Still not clear because the video was shaking alot. Some site has her at 5'9. Plus she is/used to be a model.
defender said on 9/Jun/09
I'd say mark is 5'7" if the girl on the video I posted is 5'9"
TELLEM said on 9/Jun/09
wahlberg was a tad bit shorter than ice cube in 3 kings. is ice cube really 5'8? clooney had 3 solid inches over cube.
leonari said on 8/Jun/09
Mikew: Another post that is rubbish. Go on you are on track to the number one spot of posting the most bull here. Wahlberg 5'6"? Anything under 5'7" is ridiculous. At least admit it.
RisingForce said on 8/Jun/09
I've seen Caan looking almost as tall as Arnold Schwarzenegger in premiere pictures. His shoes probably lifts, but they weren't ridiculous. I feel he'd have to be 5'9.5" atleast to pull that off. By the way 5'9.5" for Caan is half an inch higher than Rob lists him and I go by morning height while he goes by afternoon height. There's nothing ridiculous about my estimate for Caan's height.

I get what you're saying about Mark and it was actually me who posted that picture despite the fact that it contradicts my belief of Mark being close to 5'8". I just haven't seen enough that shows Mark under 5'7". I'll take that picture for what it is, one picture.
defender said on 7/Jun/09
Click Here

is it me or is there a 2" difference between the two? how tall is the girl?
Mikew said on 7/Jun/09
Rising:

Caan is likely about 5'9.5"? LOL!! Now that "estimate" wouldn't have anything to do with trying to make your Stallone is 5'10.75" argument plausible, now would it? Funny stuff Rising.
Mikew said on 7/Jun/09
Rising force says on 2/Jun/09

I still can't get over how short Mark looks here. Click Here I think that picture is from 1991, maybe he grew after that? Donnie has more than 3 inches on him there. I believe Mark is 5'7.5", possibly 5'8" so that picture is puzzling to say the least.

Rising: The reason you "can't believe it" is because Wahlberg really is that short. Forget about all of the pics after he became an "A list" star . . . he doesn't leave home without the customs these days. This is the problem with this site: someone uncovers a perfect picture, one taken long before the actor became a star and therefore long before the thought of lifts ever entered his mind, and people still cling to their pre-conceived notions (in this case that Mark is 5'7.5"-5'8"), no matter how strong the evidence is to the contrary. The picture with Donnie is not "puzzling;" it is an accurate reflection of just how short Mark is, without help. What would be puzzling, absent the knowledge that he's an obvious lift wearer, are the pictures where Mark looks in the 5'8" plus range. Rising: you yourself acknowledge that Donnie has "more than 3 inches" on Mark in that picture (looks like about 4), yet you refuse to accept what is likely true: Mark, without help, is really short, probably in the 5'6"-5"6.5" range. With "help" he can appear 5'8"ish.
RisingForce said on 7/Jun/09
Caan is likely about 5'9.5" which is why he's 2 inches taller than 5'7.5" Mark.
lexi said on 6/Jun/09
Here is Wahlberg w/ James Caan (who's listed at 5'9, but looks closer to 5'8 to me) Not the best picture because Mark is wearing a hat that makes him a tad bit taller, but footwear is shown and Caan still is taller, but not by much.

Brad said on 4/Jun/09
Glenn on April 20th: "gee, some on this site think I'm 5' 6.5", 5' 7"". Uh, yeah...and with Wahlberg he looked shorter than that.
RisingForce said on 3/Jun/09
5'7.5" makes the most sense, it seems that most of us agree on that. I don't have a problem with 5'8" either. Donnie consistently has 2+ inches on Mark.
TELLEM said on 2/Jun/09
what are the odds that at over 20 you'll grow? heres mark and donnie at the ransom premiere when mark was in his mid-20s Click Here
Source said on 2/Jun/09
Click Here
TELLEM said on 2/Jun/09
thats not even 1.5 inches. LOL. but yea his posture looks like its effecting him there, hes a 5'7 guy, thats for sure. i doubt he grew after that. A young leo had him by a good couple inches in 95.
burby said on 2/Jun/09
Mark was only 20 or so when that pic was taken, so I guess it's possible that he could have grown some more. That pic with his brother is not the greatest condidering you have a hard time seeing the top of Marks head unless you use photoshop to lighten it, and Marks shorts are so low they look like pants, making him appear short. I don't believe a full 5ft 8 for Wahlberg, considering weak 5ft 8 Ludacris is ever so slightly taller than him. 5ft 7.5.
Source said on 2/Jun/09
He doesn't even look that short there... He's like 1,5inch shorter than Donnie in that pic, and he isn't even standing straight.
Dural said on 2/Jun/09
Rising, maybe his shoes grew after that. 5'7.5" sounds good to me.

i'd put donnie at a weak 5'10 also, or 5'9.5 during the day. markie mark looked 2-2.5 inches shorter than him
Rocky said on 1/Jun/09
Sometimes he can look 5'9'' but he's always at least 2-4 inches shorter than Donnie, who is a weak 5'10''
RisingForce said on 28/May/09
I agree, burby.
burby said on 27/May/09
Taking a look at these photos, I see:
Mark Wahlberg: 5ft 7.5
Donnie Wahlberg: 5ft 10
Jeremy Piven: weak 5ft 7
Ludacris: weak 5ft 8
kswiss said on 21/May/09
Hey guys,
I was a background extra some years ago on many movies and I can honestly tell you that standing right next to Sylvester Stallone on a set (who had special weird sneakers with quite some lift) still seemed to be about 5'8 next to me. I am a little bit taller and I wasn't wearing any special shoes on the set. Also, Kurt Russell seemed shorter than 5'8.
ricealpha said on 19/May/09
yo Glenn how tall is Mamun really
Source said on 19/May/09
QFT, Leung.
Leung said on 17/May/09
Yoyo,
Why would Wahlberg AND his co-stars be wearing lifts together in a movie? You
yoyo said on 17/May/09
Mark Wahlberg is no way 5ft8.. he often wear bigger lifts than his co star. i see him 5ft9.5 5ft10 with lift. def about 2.25inch less on his lift. Mark Wahlberg was a strong 5ft7.
glenn said on 16/May/09
mark is 5-8.5 to 5-9 in the morning to me.5-8 at night.
RisingForce said on 15/May/09
i haven't seen the yards, but i thought phoenix was a hair taller in we own the night, i'm not 100% sure though. i'm fine with 5-8 for mark, but i personally think 5-7.5 is closer.
glenn said on 15/May/09
blake-rob will hopefully find them.
MD said on 14/May/09
Yeah, Eminem is at least a full inch shorter than Rev Run. I recently posted the photos on Eminems page, but Rob didn't give them a reply or anyone else for that matter. Eminem is at the very most 5'7.5".
Leung said on 14/May/09
Risingforce,
Wahlberg and Phoenix are the same height. Check out their movies The Yards or We Own the Night and you
Blake said on 14/May/09
Hey Glenn...where are those pics of you with this guy you used to have?|
RisingForce said on 14/May/09
mark is shorter than 5-8 joaquin phoenix in most pictures and a hair shorter than 5-7.75, 5-8 ludacris in every picture i've seen of the two. 5-7.5 fits perfectly. he's slightly taller than 5-7 guys like eminem and john leguizamo, but not by much. he oddly gave the illusion of being 3-4 inches shorter than his 5-10 brother when he was surely liftless at that basketball game he and donnie played at. 5-10 matt damon also had 2-3 inches on mark at the nba finals when marks shoes looked thicker than matt's.

5-7.5 seems as accurate as you can get for mark.
leonari said on 13/May/09
There is no way Eminem is much taller than 5'7". He is well proportioned but he ain't no 5'8" guy. Thats one of the very rare mistakes Rob has made. Only by an inch but 5'8" is simply wrong for EM. Wahlberg is taller but not by much. He is "bigger" muscle wise but hey are close in height.
TELLEM said on 13/May/09
Source says on 13/May/09
If Eminem is 5'8(173cm) (which he is according to this site), then there is no way Mark Wahlberg is. Just look at this video, there is about 1-2cm difference. My final estimation on Marks height is about 5'8.5-5'9. kkthxbye

Click Here


eminem has admitted to 5'7 in a song. and he looks it. so that makes wahlberg 5'7.5
Anonymous said on 13/May/09
He is 5'6-7 at most. I am 100% sure of that.

I think most celebrities would not give a rats about people debating their height on a website. Think about it, most people generally have little interest in height. Flick through a gossip magazine and you
Gregory said on 12/May/09
Mark may be short but I'm so short I can sit on the sidewalk and swing my feet.
RisingForce said on 12/May/09
ed, that comment makes no sense. i've argued with source about mark's height. i have mark at 5-7.5 and source has him at atleast 5-8.5. why would you think we're the same person?
glenn said on 12/May/09
ricealpha-i only mentioned it cause it was brought up by someone else first.im 37.of course im gonna look better when i was younger.
glenn said on 12/May/09
ricealpha-i agree.but not too many would adhere to it.
ricealpha said on 11/May/09
I really think these celebs should be made aware of this site and if they got the courage should make a video and post it on youtube with their height getting measured. No shoes, just bare feet. THAT WOULD SETTLE ALL THE BICKERING.

Posted by Vladmir.

that must be the most truthfull comment on this site.What dyou think glenn about passing this message on to celebs
ricealpha said on 11/May/09
Glenn I have to say that your english is quite good despite the fact you post your comments via phone.Also I'm sure that you work very hard to get the pics with celebs.However I would like to know out of curiosity why you have to always say in response to variuos attacks on you, that you have many women and are good looking.I mean why would you need to mention that, you must feel insecure so whether your claims are true or not your in the same situation who doesn't have looks , women etc.

P.s.: you did look much better when you were thinner.
Boxing Fighter said on 8/May/09
Boxing fan is right. In boxing weight is always carefully measured but usually, even in professional, height is self reported.
leonari said on 5/May/09
Mark is over 5'7" but not by much
glenn said on 4/May/09
explains why i tower the pacman.
MD said on 3/May/09
BoxingFan is exactly right. I've seen 5'6" Ricky Hatton, for instance, listed as high as 5'7.5" during fights, which is ridiculous. They get to report their height.

Editor Rob
Ricky himself only claimed 5ft 6.
glenn said on 3/May/09
all height is self reported? that doesnt sound right to me.im not a boxing expert.but certainly a fan to a point.i hope you know more on this than i do.
BoxingFan said on 3/May/09
Source, the athletic commissions only measure the weight. Height is self-reported.
LG69 said on 27/Apr/09
I always thought 5'7 1/2"-5'8".
Source said on 25/Apr/09
Geez, how could a boxer lie about his height..? They check his height and weight regularly.
ikbtops said on 24/Apr/09
If Mark dreams about about being 5'10"-he'd better wake up and apologize to Matt Damon.
Rachel said on 24/Apr/09
I got news for yall but when I waited tables in LA celebs would come in all the time, especially after hours with their girlfriends, etc and I waited on Mark not once but twice. I am 5 6 and he looked up at me with my two inch heels, so in REAL LIFE, the guy is 5 6 at best. Whatever he does after that with lifts or whatever, who knows... But thats the real life fact of it.

PS Gibson is the same!
glenn said on 24/Apr/09
i agree,on screen he can look 5-10.except the departed.he gave me a 5-6,5-7 illusion.
Doug said on 22/Apr/09
Personally if I see Wahlberg on screen not standing next to a tall actor and he looks a good 5'10" to me. Its only when he stands next to actors like Danny Glover you realise that he is way off this tall!!
Doug said on 22/Apr/09
Regis and Kelly are dwarfs LOL! They would make Tom Cruise look tall! Is it me or does Wahlberg often look a convincing 5'10"-6'" on screen? He looks WAY taller on screen.
glenn said on 20/Apr/09
gee,and some on the site insist im 5-6.5,5-7.leung,you should post that on the glenn page.either way,thanks for backing me on that.
Leung said on 19/Apr/09
That's nonsense and you know it.
Glenn met Pacman and had 3 inches over him.
5
RisingForce said on 19/Apr/09
That makes Glenn 5'9.5" Source.
leonari said on 19/Apr/09
they list Pacman as 5'6.5. he is not that tall
Source said on 19/Apr/09
Pacman is 5'6
Leung said on 15/Apr/09
Vladimir,
Pacman is only 5'5", that's why 5'8" Walhberg towered him.
Dave said on 14/Apr/09
I'm not gauging height, just size. Check out a front view of the two of them. Have you ever watched Regis when an actual tall/large guy is on, like David Boreanaz? He makes Regis & Kelly look like dwarfs. Zooey is not big...he does not look big either in comparison. If he was a larger guy, she would not look so large next to him, regardless of the camera.
ACG said on 13/Apr/09
Dave: First off, they're SITTING....that alone takes away all height appearance accuracy.

Secondly, I believe Zoey is actually sitting on a higher seat than Mark. AND she's closer to the camera.

No offense man, but I don't think you possibly could've chosen a worse video with which to gauge Mark Wahlberg's height....
Dave said on 13/Apr/09
I saw this clip on youtube. Next to Zooey Deschanel (5'3" to 5'4") he does not look very large, in fact...she looks bigger than Mark!

Dave said on 12/Apr/09
Saw this clip on youtube...he's sitting next to Zooey Deschanel (5'3" to 5'4")and looks SMALLER than she does.

Vladimir said on 11/Apr/09
LOL, I saw a recent boxing promotion and Wahlberg was accompanying boxer Manny Pacquiao who is listed as 5'6 and he towered over him. I didn't get a look at the feet and what he was wearing. Who knows how tall he is....could be 5'7 or 5'8.

I really think these celebs should be made aware of this site and if they got the courage should make a video and post it on youtube with their height getting measured. No shoes, just bare feet. THAT WOULD SETTLE ALL THE BICKERING.
RisingForce said on 11/Apr/09
Burt Reynolds was 5'11" or 5'11.5" in his peak, I don't know if he had lost height by the Boogie Nights.
RisingForce said on 11/Apr/09
But Wahlberg is taller than Jeremy Piven in numerous pictures and at numerous events. A 5'7" flat Marky Mark would make Piven 5'6.5"? Cruise I think is 5'8" or a hair over when he wakes.
Hugh 190cm said on 11/Apr/09
I don't think Wahlberg is 5ft8. Not Quite. More 5ft7-5ft7.5. I think Cruise could be 5ft8 though. I can't beleive this guy Wahlberg can actually claim 5ft10 when he's getting owned by Matt Damon and Burt Reynolds who are both really 5ft10.
leonari said on 10/Apr/09
I agree with Rising here...But Wahlberg could be closer to a flat 5'7" than we think. Cruise is very close to 5'8". But not a full 5'8" to me.
RisingForce said on 10/Apr/09
No, I'm saying that Cruise is taller at 5'8" and Mark is 5'7.5". Cruise consistently looks taller than Wahlberg does in pictures. Cruise can easily pass for 5'9" and Mark almost never passes for that tall.
Source said on 9/Apr/09
So what you are saying, RisingForce, is that Wahlberg and Cruise are the same height? Don't think so...
RisingForce said on 7/Apr/09
I've seen Fear and I don't remember the exact height difference. I remember Peterson looking down at Wahlberg though. I can't be sure as I haven't seen the movie in a long time but I remember atleast a 2 inch difference. I think Mark is 5-7.5.
SayHeyKid said on 6/Apr/09
Rocky: We'll just have to agree to disagree. To me, it looked like at least 3.5 inches. Everyone can see the movie and judge for themselves. The photos with Leo and, in particular, with brother Donnie, underscore how short he is. Unfortunately, with him now being such a big movie star, I doubt new pictures will emerge sans the lifts.
Rocky said on 5/Apr/09
SayHeyKid: I saw the movie Fear and know which scene you're talking about. William Peterson at 5'10'' looks exactly 1.5-3 inches taller than Wahlberg in that scene, and didn't "tower over him" as you said.
RisingForce said on 30/Mar/09
Nice rare picture Tellem. Not a perfect picture, but it's obvious that Leo dwarfs Mark there. And there are questions about Leo's height back then. He often didn't even look 5'11" in the mid 90's.

In this picture from 1991 where Mark and Donnie are obviously liftless, Mark looks no more than 5'7". Click Here I think he's a little taller than that at 5'7.5", but it's an interesting picture.

Just like Tellem's picture showed Mark looked shorter in the early to mid 90's than he does now. 5'7.5" fits perfectly for Mark in my opinion.
Source said on 30/Mar/09
Add an inch to every celebrity registered on this site and it's spot on...

glenn said on 27/Mar/09
stallone isnt 5-11ish.he is 5-10ish.averages at 5-10 flat.wakes at 5-10.75.saw him enough in all kinds of footwear in 20 years to know his height well.averages at 6ft in person.in lifts.6-1 on good occassion.a 5-8 man cant do that.cause tom cruise never looks that tall even in his best lifts.

Tellem, your picture didn't work. Was it from the Departed premiere or an older picture from the mid 90's?
SayHeyKid said on 26/Mar/09
Rising: I like the old "I'm not going to respond to one your posts" trick, which of course involves yet another one of your lame responses. I'm 38 for the record, far older than you, and no doubt far wiser. I have no interest in responding to you further, though I am curious as to the claimed interest at which you "excel." Would that be writing long essays about Stallone and trying, unsuccessfully, to convince everyone that Stallone is 5'11ish in order to fulfill some sort of fantasy of yours?

TELLEM said on 26/Mar/09
yea, i agree risingforce, 5'7.5 for wahlberg...put him next to 5'8ers and hes shorter, not by much, only by a hair.
Random Person said on 26/Mar/09
I'm going to have to go with a strong 5'7.75
RisingForce said on 25/Mar/09
These seem to be the ideal pictures of Ludacris and Mark to compare.
Click Here
Click Here

They seem really close, but Ludacris could be a hair taller. That'd put Mark at 5'7.5" if Ludacris is listed accurately on this site.

Then again Mark is taller than Jeremy Piven who is also listed at 5'7.75".
Click Here
Click Here

Wahlberg's shoe has a decent sized heel Click Here but nothing really unusual as far as I can see. Piven didn't lift his foot off the ground like Wahlberg Click Here but if he did then I could see the heel on his shoe looking as big as Wahlberg's. When Mark had his foot planted on the ground the heel looked no bigger than the heels on Piven's shoes. Click Here

Wahlberg was taller than Piven at another event. Click Here And at this event Click Here where Wahlberg was wearing sneakers Click Here and Piven was wearing dress shoes. Click Here

I suspect that Piven is closer to 5'7" flat. Wasn't he also shorter than Ludacris? It's funny how Mark and Jeremy claim 5'10" when they're both shorter than Ludacris who claims 5'8". Based on most pictures Mark also seems a little shorter than Joaquin Phoenix.

This is the tallest that I've seen Mark look. Click Here He actually for once looks 5'10" like he claims next to 6'2" Samuel L. Jackson. He does oddly look taller than 5'8" William Shatner as well. Click Here But lifts are possible there. Lifts could make a 5'7.5" man taller than a 5'8" man pretty easily.

Mark has been wearing big boots lately. A lot like the ones you see Sly wear to basketball games and walking around Beverly Hills.
Click Here
Click Here
Click Here

And finally here's a shot that Mark probably loves. Mark and Dustin Hoffman who claims 5'5.75". Click Here Mark actually does look over 5'8" there as well.

The best comparisons in my opinion are to Ludacris, Piven and Phoenix. He's slightly shorter than 5'8" Joaquin Phoenix and 5-8ish Ludacris, but slightly taller than Piven who I peg at about 5'7". S'7.5" seems to make the most sense to me.
RisingForce said on 25/Mar/09
Once again SayHeyKid, you countinue to talk about things you don't have a clue about. No I'm not very young, I'm in my late 20's. And unlike you I have a lot of interests, one of which I excel at which is more than you can say. Despite your name here being an obvious reference to Willy Mays I think the kid part fits you. I'd be shocked if you're even 18, and if you are then that's pretty funny.

But I'll be the bigger man here and end this. I'm not going to reply to another one of your posts on this page and I suggest you stop mentioning my Stallone estimate on pages where it's irrelevant. It makes you seem obsessed with me. Now you can go back to your fantasy world where Mark Wahlberg is 5'6.5" if that makes you feel better.
TELLEM said on 25/Mar/09
Source says on 24/Mar/09
TELLEM,I give up, you are obviously just a shorty in denial.

Anyway, based on what i said earlier. If Matt is 5'9.75-5'10 that would make Mark 5'8
SayHeyKid said on 25/Mar/09
Rising: Unlike you, I actually have a life and don't spent 90% of it searching for photos of celebs (like Stallone) to make a case for how tall they are. You're probably very young and I'm guessing quite short. At any rate, go ahead and post another essay about how tall Stallone is. It obviously fills a void in your life and makes you feel better about yourself. Good for you, whatever it takes. By the way, have you ever added up the time you have spent "making the case" for Stallone?
Brad said on 24/Mar/09

RisingForce said on 24/Mar/09
You're accusing me of believing in billed heights when I'm saying Mark is either 5-7ish or 5-8ish and he claims 5'10"? Even these days he gets listed at 5'9". I'm not claiming he's either. I'm claiming he's what everyone else claims.

Get your head examined, have you noticed that nobody else thinks he's anything under 5'7"? No pictures point to that, he's not listed here at that and Glenn who has met him says there's no way he's that short.

I find it funny that you criticize my Stallone estimate as many people have him around the same height that I do. Glenn who has met him over a dozen times over a 20 year span and has a picture with him does. Look at Glenn's earlier picture where Sly is wearing sandals. Then there's Leung who also met him person and thought that he was a solid 5'10", but 6'1" in elevator shoes. Gonzalo is another poster and said that Stallone looked just under 5'11" and his sneakers appeared to be normal. Then there are other regular posters who ahve him over 5'10" like Annoyed who has him at 5'10.5" morning height and ACG who also has Sly at 5'10.75". Leonari who is another regular poster who thinks Sly is 5'10".

Find me that many regular posters who think Mark is under 5'7". You're the one living in your own fantasy world. Taking inches off of celebrities heights won't get you a better job or a girlfriend but I guess it makes you feel better about your height.
SayHeyKid said on 24/Mar/09
Rising: you're the classic example of someone who believes that celebrities' heights are as billed, no doubt a reflection of the fantasy world in which you live. Do you still believe in the tooth fairy? Santa Claus? At any rate, I find it humorous that you will swear that Wahlberg isn't a "hair under" 5'7", meaning that you acknowledge that he could be exactly that, yet you simultaneously characterize the possibility that you could be a 1/2 of an inch off a "joke." If he could be 5'7", then he could be 5'6.5" genius, particularly when one considers that you have no clue what "help" he's getting, not to mention the fact that being able to pinpoint anyone's height within a 1/2 of an inch, particularly when photos with countless variables are involved, is not exactly scientific to say the least.

Go post some more essays about how Stallone is a 6 footer. I especially like the transparent explanations as to the alleged insignificance of the fact that everyone who has met Stallone refers to him as "short."
Source said on 24/Mar/09
TELLEM,I give up, you are obviously just a shorty in denial.

Anyway, based on what i said earlier. If Matt is 5'9.75-5'10 that would make Mark 5'8
RisingForce said on 24/Mar/09
SayHeyKid, you're the classic example of someone who downgrades celebrities heights to feel better about yourself. It's very common and 5'6.5" is a joke for Mark. He isn't a hair under 5'7" and I'd bet he's more like 5'7.5".
SayHeyKid said on 23/Mar/09
Rising: You're a funny guy, if nothing else. Yes, your estimates, particularly regarding Stallone, are silly. And it is you that is the joke, and no, writing long essays and posting irrelevant and misleading pictures, over and over and over again, do not change that. Yes, Wahlberg can appear to be 5'8ish, but that is only because he is a lift wearer. Have you seen Fear? If you had, then you would know to hush up. 5'6.5" is hardly a bold proclamation, as several articles, including some posted and referenced here, make references to him being 5'7" "at the most" (see SF Chronicle article that you yourself quoted). It is of course possible that he is 5'7" but no more, though I would stick with 5'6.5" Get over it fanboy: these celebrities are not as tall as you think.

There is about 0,75inches(2cm) in difference between Clooney and Damon.
If George Clooney is 5'10
Clay said on 23/Mar/09
Thats funny I actually thought Wahlberg looked his tallest in Fear.
RisingForce said on 23/Mar/09
SayHeyKid, you're a joke. There's zero chance Mark is 5'8" and yet Glenn has met him many times, gotten pictures with him and says he's not under that? There's zero chance he's 5'8" and yet he's listed at that height here? Even those who estimate Mark at 5'7" or 5'7.5" usually leave 5'8" as a possibility saying something like "5-8 max".

Why would you bring me up as someone inflating Mark's height. I said he's anywhere from 5'7.5" to 5'8.5". That's not at all unreasonable considering that's in the same range as almost every other estimate.

5'6.5" max for Mark Wahlberg? And you call my estimates silly.

damon is 5-10. 5-9 not impossible.but unlikely.garcia is 5-9,5-9.25.wears lifts to match damon.
SayHeyKid said on 22/Mar/09
There is ZERO percent chance that Wahlberg is 5'8". Watch the 1996 film Fear, filmed before Wahlberg became an "A list" star and obviously before he started regularly wearing lifts. He is absolutely towered by William Peterson, listed at 5'10" elsewhere and 5'10".5 on this site. Hilarious. He is no more than 5'6.5". There is one scene in particular which is borderline comical in demonstrating just how short Wahlberg is. It is when Peterson's character confronts Wahlberg and warns him to stay away from his daughter. For crying out loud, the 5'10-5'10.5" Peterson is practically bending down just to even talk to Wahlberg. Check it out.

P.S. Every Hollywood actor who can be linked to an actor, who in turn can be linked to Stallone, must be a bit taller than reported according to Risingforce, who must of course, for reasons only known to him, continue to defend his silly 5'11ish claim for Stallone.
RisingForce said on 22/Mar/09
Did Mark stand next to Zakk Wylde in Rock Star? I've met Zakk and he seemed to be 6'2". Mark would look like tiny next to him in height and weight.
Brad said on 22/Mar/09
Garcia is 5' 9" I stood right next to him. Look at him in "Rock Star". They used more up shots than a monster movie.

Damon is 5'9.5-5'9.75 IMO if we wanna get exact. Wahlberg is short at 5'8 but a pretty muscular guy, his arms were large in Four Brothers like I said.

Piven is 5'7-5'7.5 tops, 5'7 seems dead on for Wahlberg, 5'8 tops for him tho..

He's 5'7". 5'8" Jeremy Piven is taller than him by at least an inch.

exactly Brad. if anything, wahlberg's 5'7.5 during the day, and wakes up at 5'8.

Duvall in side by side pictures with Phoenix looks taller. Duvall is still probably atleast 5-9.

Phoenix admits to being 5' 8". Just look at Wahlberg with him. That's not even 5' 8".
Complex said on 26/Feb/09
He's shorter than Duvall & Phoenex by at least an inch, i'd say he's around 5'7. A weak 5'8 at is possible tops.

What year was that picture from?
glenn said on 26/Feb/09

I thought it was you that said that mr. r but wasn't for sure..I wish they woulda said how many inches over you were so we'd know, haha! But in my opinion, even if ya'll were half an inch difference putting him at 5'11 they likely coulda still let you do it cuz half an inch ain't much, so obviously he's not 5'11..
ACG said on 25/Feb/09
Guys, watch Max Payne.....one of his female co-stars is supposed to be 5'9 barefoot. Even in her ridiculously high stripper/prostitute heels(adding practically a foot), she was still only a smidgen(if even) taller than M. Wahlberg in full body shots. Good chance Mark was in lifts, but there's no way he was even getting near 1/3 of the boost she had- seriously, 'them were some big-ass heels!!

Even 5'9 for mark seems too short after seeing those scenes, but from other places you might see him, I guess he really is around that mark(no pun intended).
RisingForce said on 24/Feb/09
Phoenix admitted to being 5-8 so I see no reason to believe he's over that Source.
Bornin1986 said on 24/Feb/09
Mark is 5-8.5, his wife is 5-9 and he was only very slightly shorter than her. Either Mark had more footwear on or unless Phoenix is not really 5-8, more like 5-7. Wahlberg did look about 1m75 in "The Happening". He looks taller only onscreen.
TELLEM said on 24/Feb/09
by the way glenn, if you didn't care what ppl on here had to say of not ever meeting a celeb, then you wouldn't care about ppl's 5'7 cheadle estimates or 5'8 matt damons aswell and you would let them ride their opinions. again, no disrespect, just talking how i feel.
TELLEM said on 24/Feb/09
well who's to say who is right then glenn? did u measure your 5'11 friend? or tyrese? what was inside tyrese shoes? or your friends shoes? Mr. R. was too tall for the role at 5'11.5, that tells me something. no disrespect aswell glenn, but i really don't care if you met a celeb or not.

5-8.5 max in my opinion. Either 5-8 or 5-8.5 I think, but not over, not even out of bed. Of course I could be wrong, but 5-9 seems too high to me.
glenn said on 14/Feb/09
geffen is supposedly 5-7.so that makes mark 5-8.5. 5-8.5 to 5-9 is what i have mark at now.
Clay said on 13/Feb/09
5'8 isnt ''generous'' for Marky. 5'8 comes off as short all the time, especially when you see a tough guy actor walking around at that height.

I saw a picture of him with David Geffen and he's only 1.5" taller than Geffen who is really short.

RisingForce said on 10/Feb/09
Yeah that sounds almost exactly like what happened to me. People with really bad posture are really difficult to estimate because you find yourself guessing how much height they're losing by slouching.

By the way I'll look for your pictures with Mark Wahlberg, I was able to find your 1991 picture with Sly, your picture with Matt Damon, your picture with George Clooney and a couple of others so I may be able to find it.
glenn said on 10/Feb/09
so you see my point risingforce.i know another guy that im not friends with,that i thought was my height.he claimed 5-9.5.well,the more i studied his horrendous posture,and his flat shoes,he was right.

By the way it seems like Mark has dropped the 5-10 claim. He seems to be officially listed at 5-9 now. Click Here
RisingForce said on 9/Feb/09
I'm going to change my mind on this. Looking at the Departed premiere pictures where DiCaprio and Wahlberg had dress shoes, Mark looked a solid 5-8, or 5-8.5 if DiCaprio is 5-11.5, and Wahlberg's posture wasn't great. I didn't compare Mark to Jack Nicholson because Jack had chunky shoes and looked 5-10 compared to DiCaprio, and we all know he's not 5-10. Damon looked 5-10.5, 5-11 so he likely had a footwear advantage as well.

He's taller than I initially thought, he's 5-8 or 5-8.5, still a long way from his 5-10 claim though.
Complex said on 9/Feb/09
How tall are you lenad?
JB said on 9/Feb/09
I met him years ago in boston - and I am exactly 5-8 and 3/4 - and he was considerably shorter than me. He's about 5'6" - 5'-7" at best. I was very surprised how short he was.
Lenad said on 9/Feb/09
I'm positive Mark Wahlberg will say I'm 6'0 if he met me.
RisingForce said on 8/Feb/09
Yeah sometimes you'll be surprised when you stand straight compared to another person to compare heights without shoes.

Actually a somewhat embarrassing moment happened recently with a longtime friend. My friend is 29 and he has horrendous posture so I've thought he was 5-8 for years. He was in socks and I had really big heeled cowboy boots on and he joked that with them I might be his height. Of course since I claim 5-8 myself and I thought he was 5-8 I replied that we're about the same height without the boots so I'll be quite a bit taller with them. Then he straightened up and I stood straight, but he was still a little taller and my brother who was also there confirmed it.

Amazingly he measured 5-9 3/4 shortly after that and I've known him 25+ years(since we were young kids) and I could've sworn that the last dozen years he'd seemed 5-8 max, but standing straight he was 5-10ish.

Maybe Mark's posture isn't great which is why he often looks 5-7.5, 5-8. 5-8.25 for Cruise isn't hard for me to believe. I've seen him in elevator shoes pretty much match Kidman's height in flats and in elevator shoes he matched Cuba Gooding Jr's height in dress shoes. He was almost as tall as Leno not long ago either, Leno actually looked at Cruise's shoes when he noticed he was unusually tall for him too!
glenn said on 7/Feb/09
anythings possible with wahlberg and cruise.but im leaning towards more 5-9 for mark and 5-8.25 for cruise.i have a 5-9 friend i thought was my height,until we took off our shoes.
RisingForce said on 6/Feb/09
I think Rob's listing is good enough. With good posture he can look more like 5'9", but like everyone he can look shorter than he is at times. It's rare that he doesn't look anywhere from 5'7" to 5'9" and most of the time he looks 5'8".

5'8" makes the most sense. 5'7.5" and 5'8.5" are both possible though.
glenn said on 6/Feb/09
why even respond to posts like that? and a 6-2 guy at that.
Bill said on 5/Feb/09
We were both wearing a dress shoe and I did make a point at looking at his heal and it was about an inch,the same as mine.
158cm said on 5/Feb/09
5'6, really? Did you even check his footwear and yours? I'd say Mark is near 1m74 at the highest and the lowest he'll go is probably at 5'7 7/8.
Bill said on 3/Feb/09
Mark is very close to 5 ft. 6 in. I have stood next to him and he almost comes up to my chin and that is 5ft 6 in. exactly. I am 6 ft 2 in.
Complex said on 31/Jan/09
He's prolly 5'7 late in the evening and closer to 5'8 mid-day, like 5'7.75, doubt he reaches 5'8 tho.
RisingForce said on 29/Jan/09
Mark looks 5-7.5 with Leguizamo, but it's hard to see their shoes. Leguizamo's look normal.

Who cares what they had in the Departed. Mark probably wore lifts. At the basketball game, Mark appeared to have thicker shoes and Damon was still 2 inches taller.

Wahlberg is likely 5-8 and Damon is 5-10.
Mr. R. said on 29/Jan/09
I have seen enough pics of Mark with other celebs that I have met, (most notably George Clooney, to say that Mark is 5-8 AT THE TALLEST POINT OF THE DAY! Later in the day, he is 5-7.5
Complex said on 28/Jan/09
First of all, Damon doesn't have two inches on him, in the departed Damon had max 1-1.5 inches and second, wahlberg is definately taller than little cruise. Tellem's right, he's shorter than self-claimed 5'8 phoenix by an inch, 5'7.
leonari said on 28/Jan/09
Bam: thats the right question to ask! So I ask all of the rest: How come Matt Damon has over two inches on Wahlberg in full body pics??????? Cause Mark is MAX a flat 5'8" on a good day and Damon is a solid 5'10 guy. Thats why. Hmm I just answered my question myself...

This confirms they were in golf shoes in those pictures.

So with the footwear solved and the fact that I think out of bed Sly is 5'10.5"/5'10.75" and Caan is about 5'10" I'll give Mark 5'8", 5'8.5" out of bed, but never 5'9". Not at any time of the day.

I think his quote that he said he was 5' 10" is hilarious. Look at him on the beach with his wife. He's not even close to 5' 10".

i saw anthony anderson today. i think it was a law and order they were filming, upper west manhatten.
anyway, he was in about 1 inch dress shoes, and i was like 10-20 inches away from him. i'm 174 in the morning and i had timberlands on. Anyway anthony is 5'10". he had me by a good 1.5 inches.
In conclusion: wahlberg looks a good 5'8.5" in this pic with anthony!

I agree Glenn, in fear I thought he seemed 5'10" without knowing the other actor's heights, but he never really looks 5'10" to me. 5'9" sometimes, but not really 5'10".

Actually, I have seen Mark Wahlberg next to Tom Cruise and Tom had him by a good 2 inches. So that would make Mr. Wahlberg about 5 ft. 5 in. tall.
Derbi said on 27/Jan/09
Source, those are exactly my words. glad to see that you acg and Glenn agree!
Complex said on 26/Jan/09
First of all let me start by saying I truly believe he is 5'7, but 5'8 wouldn't be too awful suprising, but 5'9 would be extremely suprising. I seriously doubt he ever hits 5'9.

Acg I wanted to say that Wahlberg was 1-2 inches MAX over Leguizamo in the happening, so as far as ignorance goes, it would seem ignorant to say Mark towered John. He was taller but again I say 2 inches tops. Personally I think there is 1 to 1.5 inches between the two and I think Leguizamo is more 5'6.5. But honestly, am I way out of line here or is 2 inches truly a tower? I know some who say that 4 inches isn't a tower, so how could 2 be. Personally I think a tower is when someone's eye level is at or above the others head. That being said acg I do agree with you that it is foolish to say "he always looks short". In the italian job he looked a decent height, granted he wore lifts, when compared to the cast. He was the leading guy so he had to look taller and they had him looking a tad taller than those such as Statham, Def, and a tad tad taller than theron in flats. Then again there was a scene with him and theron where she had him by 2 inches. The 5'7 range suits him,5'8 tops!

outside of the screen he never looks 5-10.but,sure on screen,maybe a couple of times.i thought he looked it in fear.thats if you dont know the other actors heights.
glenn said on 26/Jan/09

ACG - I love when people say ''well he looks short you know, he must be like 5'7.5'' - 5'8-5'9 LOOKS SHORT, basically most of the time.
Source said on 26/Jan/09
I agree 100% with you Glenn. I'd say he's 5'9(175cm) straight out of bed and about 5'8
ACG said on 26/Jan/09
If Mark is in the 5'8 range, then why did he tower over John Leguizamo(sp?) in The Happening? I read John's page here and glenn said John was 5'7 bare minimum and possibly 5'8.

Go watch that movie(again?) and you'll see what I'm talking about. No matter what height he truly is, I see it as a FACT that he can LOOK 5'10+ on screen.

To say "he always looks short" is plain ignorance, imho.

I know "look" is the key word in both those last statements, but Hollywood magic and illusions can only go so far.....

yes,i saw that pic.great find lugano.
lugano said on 26/Jan/09
glenn in the pic I linked, i think wahlberg looks around 5'8.5 Click Here
glenn said on 25/Jan/09
it wouldnt surprise me if he is 5-9 out of bed.he sure looked it to me.so that would put him 5-8.5 average.
RisingForce said on 25/Jan/09
Maybe he hits 5'8.5" out of bed. I'd believe it if there was a link stating that Wahlberg was specifically measured that height or if Mark specifically claimed it.

Find some more pictures of Mark and well known celebrities where Mark looks 5'8.5" and I'll change my mind.
glenn said on 25/Jan/09
anthony is 5-10.claims 5-11.looks 5-9 due to weight and posture.i see him all the time.sweet guy.
Source said on 25/Jan/09
This is why there is no doubt that Mark is 5'8
lugano said on 25/Jan/09
With Anthony Anderson who is listed 5'9 on this site. Probably lifts but i would say he must be around 5'8-5'8.5 Click Here
cagoller said on 24/Jan/09
MarcustheSwede: I'll comment on wether or not he was a nice guy since I don't think anyone else did. And he's one of the few celebs I've met so it'll make me feel important:) Yes he was a very nice guy, very unassuming and polite. Answered all of my stupid questions that I'm sure he'de heard b4. "Did you do your own vocals in Rock Star? I'm sure working with Jennifer Anniston didn't exactly suck either huh? Was a bit sheepish about answering that last one, I'm sure being a gentleman.

As for the wearing lifts in golf shoes debate I would like to chime in on that one too. Being a former club pro who did a lot of teaching, I can say that its not likely since balance plays such an integral part in the golf swing, and I've read and it appears that he takes his golf very seriously.

I would still say he appeared to me to be 5'8" on the nose. 5'9" seems to be pushing it but would not be impossible.
glenn said on 24/Jan/09
in lifts complex.i thought we went over this.the tall leo sightings that my peers,leos entourage back me on.
Complex said on 24/Jan/09
Wait...a 6'2 leo glenn??? Wahlberg is 5'7 and maybe somewhere near 5'8 would be his max...Leo's under 6'0 barefoot though.
glenn said on 23/Jan/09
he had what appeared to be regular casuals,last encounter.and how can i forget,earlier that evening,next to a 6-2 leo,and 5-10 damon,mark looked 5-9 next to them.
glenn said on 23/Jan/09
in 2000,he looked 5-7 to me.in the early 90s he looked 5-9.celebs in thin dress shoes throw illusions at me.like a 5-6 toby maguire.2 years ago(last pic),he looked 5-9.25.therefore,i think he is around 5-8.5.cause maybe i was 5-7.5.
