I saw shooter again and i will honestly say he looks between 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 9, no more, no less. He is wearing big boots(heeled ones) but he doesnt looks short although he looks a bit too muscly....but a very good movie.
bam said on 16/Jul/07
the funny thing is that wahlberg gaining 1-2 inches, (with no indication of lifts) has me baffled,and nearly furious from curiosity,
while Stallone manages to gain 5 inches over his listed height(5-9 to 6-2). Its so mysterious.
sam said on 15/Jul/07
looks taller than glenn in both pics (5'8), could pass for 5'10 though problably a tad shorter in reality.
Bombay Rocker said on 11/Jul/07
No prob bro...anytime.
glenn said on 11/Jul/07
ok.ill let you know.thanks.
Bombay Rocker said on 10/Jul/07
Glenn, check my post here on 1 july 07....i have posted the link there and just pause at 2:03 in the video and you'll see what i am talkin about.
CelebHeightFan said on 10/Jul/07
I always knew he was nowhere tallker than 5'9" (175). I agree with random person, although when I watch 'The Italian Job' I thought he was atleast 5'11". When I watch The Invincible' he looks 5'7". But 5'8" seems most truthful, I can't believe he's a malemodel!!! At 5'8", I mean is there any professional super-male-model listed @ 5'8"!!!
Bombay Rocker said on 9/Jul/07
Glenn, did you see that pic i was talkin about. The one which was shown when he was in "inside actor's studio". Anyone else who saw the pic, any comments.
glenn said on 9/Jul/07
thanks joseph.stick around.
Joseph said on 9/Jul/07
Yeah Im new to the site, very interesting stuff you got on here.
glenn said on 9/Jul/07
good joseph.are you new here? random person-i always said he gave the strange illusion of looking 5-6 to me in the movie.
Random Person said on 8/Jul/07
Just watched The Departed. Honestly, I don't know how Wahlberg can be past 5'8. He simply looked "short" (even though he is only an inch or two below average) throughout that movie. Assuming Wahlberg is 5'9, that would make Alec Baldwin over 6'1, Martin Sheen 5'8, Matt Damon 5'11-6'0, Leonardo Dicaprio an easy 6'2 and my personaly favorite, Jack Nicholson being 6 foot . Granted, Glenn has seen some of these actors look these heights, but they simply don't look it in other movies. So, that would either mean that every single actor in The Departed wore lifts besides Wahlberg, or simply Mark is an inch or two shorter then 5'9. Seriously, watch The Departed, I just can't see how Mark is 5'9 when Jack Nicholson could be approaching 5'8 these days and still appearing at least 3 inches taller. Obviously Nicholson wore lifts but come on, there wasn't any munsters involved. I admit Mark can look 5'9 (never the 5'10 he claims though) but if he really is, then a bunch of actors need an upgrade. And Leonardo Dicaprio needs to be smacked for pulling a Jude Law and shorting himself 2 inches.
Joseph said on 8/Jul/07
Im doing fine glenn, how about yourself?
Bombay Rocker said on 4/Jul/07
I will settle for 174 - 175 for mark and that i think is his real height but ya he is no ways less than 173, 174 is very very close though.
glenn said on 3/Jul/07
oh.sorry are you anyway?
Joseph said on 3/Jul/07
heya Glenn, I think you have me confused with a different Joe... so I changed my name for ya.
Bombay Rocker said on 2/Jul/07 comments from you, i don't think it's that bad an evidence man....i mean he looks taller than 5 feet 8 there....atleast a yes or no?
glenn said on 1/Jul/07
bombay- ill check that out when i get on a computer.
glenn said on 1/Jul/07
i agree ya been?
derbi said on 1/Jul/07
bobay rocker, 100% correct.
Bombay Rocker said on 1/Jul/07
Sorry i forgot to put up the link...sorry...sorry..wait.....

Bombay Rocker said on 1/Jul/07
Another evidence which might help solve mark's height confusion....this is the tape when he was interviewed in "inside actor's studio", there is a full family pic of mark, his parents, donnie and the rest of his brothers but anyways just pause at 2:03 and you'll see what i am talkin me he looks around 5 feet 8.5 to 5 feet 9 if you consider donnie as a strong 5 feet 10 which i think he is....i also heard someone say that robert is 5 feet 10 and that robert and donnie are same height but i think robert is standing next to donnie in that pic and he looks around 5 feet 9.25 - 5 feet 9.75 not a full 5 feet 10 for sure if donnie is 5 feet 10.
p.s. both donnie and mark are slouching so don't just go around saying mark looks small and so short and 5 feet 7 cause he's not less than 5 feet 8 for sure and this pic was taken when mark was very young and donnie looks around 25 there so i don't think lifts is a chance there since it's a family pic...i think it's one of the best evidence to prove his height.....What say rob, glenn...what's your opinion?
Joe said on 1/Jul/07
I would at least give him a upgrade to 174cm, he sure looks it.
Viper said on 25/Jun/07
Yeah, 5-9-5-10 is average in the United States, even though I do think Mark is short and is around 5-7-5-8 barefoot in reality. If you are at least 6-1 you will feel taller than most.
glenn said on 24/Jun/07
derbi-keep in touch while your over there.if something changes,ill let you know.
Rachelle said on 24/Jun/07
I guess you can say Matt is average height. 5'11.5 guy, you are right.
5'11.5 guy said on 24/Jun/07
Rachelle, how can you consider Matt short when he towers over you so much in the pic? He's clearly average, while Mark is below average.
Bombay Rocker said on 24/Jun/07
Rather than telling Rachelle that she has some issues, i suggest you concentrate on yourself leonari(don't mean to be rude here)...i mean she thinks 5 feet 10 is short or whatever, that's what she thinks right...everyone has a right to express his/her opinion so this is what she is doing and i mean i personally agree that average is between 5 feet 9 - 5 feet 10 and this is what the stats say. Maybe she likes tall people like 6 feet something doesn't mean that 6 feet is the average so chill, calm down man.
derbi said on 24/Jun/07
glenn, i just wondered, because i'm gonna be there 6 weeks...
leonari said on 24/Jun/07
Rachelle: Sorry Rachelle but you seem to have some realtity issues dear. You say Mark is 5'9.25" and Damon is 5'10". Now THIS IS AVERAGE in the united states where you probably live (and btw. it's also the average height in many many other countries around the world) So by saying these guys are shorter than average shows that you are not aware what average height is , which is give or take 5'9.5" to 5'10" so exactly the heights of Mark and Damon. And by telling me to read other encounters you don't help. I am a veteran poster here! I have read all encounters posted on this site!! Hell I was here before Glenn. The only reason I am interested in YOUR encounter is cause you got proof you really met Mark. And yes many say Mark and Damon are short. BUT no one said:" Hey I have met Matt Damon he is below average...I would say he is 5'10". So how in gods name can a guy be below average and at the same time be 5'10" WHICH IS THE AVERAGE!!. Thats a premiere Rachelle...
Rachelle said on 23/Jun/07
Leonari, yes, he is average in YOUR world. I think both, Matt and Mark are shorter than average, and I think everybody who has seen them in person would agree with me.

If you read other encounters with them, people say the same thing.
glenn said on 23/Jun/07
i dont think so derbi,but im supposed to funny enough.why?
derbi said on 23/Jun/07
Hey glenn, are you gonna be around in LA, Hollywood somewhen in the next 2 months?
leonari said on 23/Jun/07
Rachelle (Lady in the pic): So your first thought when meeting Mark was:"Man he is short". Still you say you saw a strong 5'9" guy which in my world is pretty average. You have a pic with Glenn who happens to be 5'8". What was your first thought when meeting Glenn? Man he is so short? Or when you met Matt Damon who apparently is in the 5'10" department you also thought the same admit it yourself. So my question is: You are a 5'6" girl so quite a bit over average. How tall does a man/superstar have to be so you say in your head: he is normal ,or average? or simply don't think about his height...6 Feet? 6'4"? I really don't get it Rachelle. Where do you live for god sakes?
Or do you think that both Whalberg and Damon have pretty weird frames , giving the impression that they are way shorter than they really are. Please reply. I'll appreciate it.thanx
glenn said on 22/Jun/07
exactly.ive been saying that for 18 months here.wait till a knucklehead runs into stallone and see how tall he can look.
Rachelle (Lady In The Pic) said on 22/Jun/07
Honestly, I do not see how anyone could judge someone's height, and say, this is their actual height, when they have never even seen them in person.

The first thing I said to myself when I met Mark was, 'Man, he's short.' I also thought the same thing when I met Matt Damon. Brad Pitt was taller in person than I expected, so was Angelina. Anna Kournikova was shorter in person, she looks taller in the pictures I see of her. Her section states that she is 5'7.5 and when I met her, she had like 2-3 inch heels on, so if she is 5'7.5 (which I think she is not, she is more like 5'6-5'6.5), that'd make her about 5'9.5 In my pic with her, I am about 2 inches shorter than her, and that would mean I'm 5'7.5, which I am not.

Look closely at my picture with Mark. My hair is dark and it kind of blends in with the back because the picture was taken at night, and ignore the sunglasses on the top my head. He is really not that much taller than me.

My point is, pictures, t.v., and movies are decieving. I do not think you can give a decent estimate on someone's height unless you see them in person.
glenn said on 22/Jun/07
trips-the only people here that met him are rachelle and i.we saw i dont know.everyone here that has met me,and thats several,agree im 5-8.
Viper said on 21/Jun/07
He could be 5-7 1/2 possibly. Shredder said he saw a quote where Wahlberg supposedly said 5-7 1/2.
Bombay Rocker said on 21/Jun/07
I agree with that, he has a long upper body and shorter legs......kinda like me but mine is more of like an equal proportion, i mean seems like half of my height comprises upper body and half of it is lower body. I read somewhere that men are more leggier gender and the standard male proportion should be in the ratio 60 - 40(60% height being lower body and 40% of it should be upper body).....this is the reason people like nick lachey look tall....i mean nick is a strong guy with a solid upper body but he has long legs and so is rob thomas.
leonari said on 21/Jun/07
Trips: correct. He has short legs.
Trips said on 21/Jun/07
I think it's fairly obvious. Mark Wahlberg is 5'8". 173-4 cm. What makes him appear shorter at times is the fact, that he has a longer torso and shorter legs. I know, because I have exactly the same body structure. If he had longer legs and shorter torso, he would be able to appear to be 5'9"-5'10". On the pics, he appears taller than Glenn, so either he wears lifts, or Glenn is lying about his height a little bit.

Editor Rob
the pavement can be a little advantageous to wahlberg with glenn.
leonari said on 20/Jun/07
Viper: I am 100 % on your side. I see the same thing or 5'7.5" barefeet. Never a full 5'9"er.
Joe said on 20/Jun/07
Wahlberg is a strong 5-8 to a weak 5-9 in my opinion. In Three Kings he seems to have a slight advantage to Ice Cube, who you have at 5-8. So unless Ice Cube is not a legit 5-8 then Im going to have to go with a weak 5-9 for sure.
Viper said on 20/Jun/07
Its just so obvious hes not 5-9 in his barefeet. We should be discussing If hes a legit 5-8 max or shorter. Personally I see him as 5-7 barefoot, 5-8 in shoes and 5-9 in lifts. The most you can give him is 5-8 in his barefeet and 5-9 in shoes.
derbi said on 20/Jun/07
viper, I don't like those people who just say that a celeb is wearing lifts, when they don't have other arguments anymore. Lifts don't explain everything, and there aren't as much celeb with as you probably think. It is really very unlikely that wahlberg was wearing lifts, in the pics of glenn and the woman in the pic.
Viper said on 20/Jun/07
Mark is 5-9 in lifts.
leonari said on 20/Jun/07
Viper: more and more start to think Mark Wahlberg is a true 5'9"er or even above which would make him AVERAGE height and not short my friend... haven't you followed whats been going on?
So you don't believe that Mark is 5'9" or ???
Viper said on 19/Jun/07
Mark doesnt have a weird body at all. Hes actually pretty proportional to his short height. And yes the guy is short. Whether he is 5-7 or 5-8.
bam said on 19/Jun/07
here is a pic of mark and his 5'10 brother
Click Here
Maybe his brother is 5'11? Wahlberg is extremely tricky.
Lady In The Pic said on 19/Jun/07
Mark is not as cocky as he use to be, but he's still kinda big, and that might make him look a little shorter. Either way, he is still HOT!

I also have a picture with Matt Damon, I'll post in on his page. I made a mark where my height ends, and I do not like the way I looked in the picture, so I blocked out my face, but you get the idea. Lol.
leonari said on 19/Jun/07
Bombay Rocker: I know exactly what you are talking about. And even though I have abs like Mark used to back in the day, I can't pull off the belly rolling thing he had going on back in the day...Incredible!!
I saw a show recently after his oscar nomination ,where they showed him this and he seemed pretty embarassed by his behavior as a young rapper ,representing Boston like he said...
Ok I will agree with 5'8.5" on a good day where he had some propper rest: 5'9.5": I just don't see that.
Ok Derbi maybe he is well proportioned ( I don't think so...for god sake look at his arms in the pic with Glenn and even today his upper arms are too big for the rest of his body: doesn't look good at all) but you have to admit that for a man that in your opinion can be as tall as almost 5'10" he looks pretty freakin small on screen. Probably just an illusion but still. Looks short. period.
derbi said on 19/Jun/07
leonari, mark wahlberg and bad proportions? Come man, you know that he is absolutely great proportioned. To your comparison sly-wahlberg: I think sly could have been 5'10" peakheight. And he has the best posture and uses lifts an elevators for shore. Think about it: mark wahlber, 5'9", not very god posture. Why should he want to be an inch taller? Even in sneakers and sporty outfits? Also as rapper he for shore wasn't wearing lifts, so why would he now? Got my point?
I think 5'8.5"-5'9.5" is a good estimation!
Bombay Rocker said on 19/Jun/07
Hey man leonari i know which video you are talkin about.....i saw that video where he takes of his t shirt, shows his abs and comments on it and then rolls his stomach.....he literally rolled his i don't know how to explain it but it looked so awesome like he was moving his stomach from inside. I don't think he's that massive but yeah he looked like john cena to me when i first saw his pic so yeah he looked kinda big but one thing to note is that when i saw his full body shot pic for the first time, my impression was around 5 feet 9 - 5 feet 10, i still remember. The best part is that he carries himself so well and the bad boy look he has...thats awesome and i think thats why he can do any roles.
leonari said on 19/Jun/07
You are right Glenn: I think Mark, SLY and Depp are the biggest enigmas of height... I also remember Mark was "BIG" in the 90's... There is a youtube video where he is still Marky Mark, purposely takes of his T-Shirt in the studio , live on a show and starts showing off his abs...HE was very massive for a guy in his early 20's...I mean even in your first pic from the early 90's his arms look huge man...
glenn said on 19/Jun/07
leonari-he isnt that stocky to me.he was in the alot on the site,he is an enigma.hence why we are interested in the subject in the first place.
glenn said on 19/Jun/07
after my mistake with leo i dont know what to say.he isnt smaller than 5-8.put it that way.
leonari said on 18/Jun/07
If this guy is truly above 5'9" he has the weirdest body type guys...I mean how massive is this guy? Glenn is he that stocky? You guys have to understand that SLY is 5'9" and was besides Arnold the most pumped up guy in Hollywood. But Sly never looks short in any movie. Mark does: in most movies. Yeah yeah lifts... But if these guys are truly (bare feet) the same height obviously Mark Wahlberg has a pretty weird if not to say bad proportioned body... I still say the guy is 5'8" and uses small lifts to reach a strong 5'9". 1 inch lifts can be put in almost any shoe (yes even casuals, sneakers etc.) and almost undectable. Big Lifts are hard to hide.

Editor Rob
the guy just looks half the time to have a loose posture.
dmeyer said on 18/Jun/07
damon who is barely 5'10 has 2 in above mark 5'8 nore 5'9.25 in lifts
derbi said on 18/Jun/07
so glenn, whar is your final estimation? If you'd run the site would you upgrade him to 5'9.25"?
glenn said on 17/Jun/07
dress go to a club.she was 5-6.i had thicker footwear.women have a tendency to look shorter in pics regardless of how tall they are.providing they arent over 5-9.i had a 5-8.5,5-9 girlfriends that i always looked taller than in pics.usually it was their posture.even in heels,i had a habit if looking around their height too.yes,photos can be decieving,and yes,lady in the pic and i both saw 5-9.25 for mark. in person.
TheJerk said on 17/Jun/07
Wow, youre right Glenn her pic with Mark doesnt do her justice.
Lady In The Pic said on 17/Jun/07
In our picture, Glenn is wearing boots, while I am wearing flip flops.Pictures are tricky. People can appear to be taller, or I guess shorter in my case, then they actually are. I'm just stating from when I met Mark IN PERSON. I am saying he's 9'1/4. 9.5 max, maybe.

Editor Rob
those might give 1/2 inch at best then.
bam said on 17/Jun/07
he actually gives the impression of a 5'8 guy. The glenn and lady in pic sightings of 5'9.25 have me baffled.
Bombay Rocker said on 17/Jun/07
She is 5 feet 6 for sure, i agree and trust glenn and that means mark is 5 feet 9 - 5 feet 9.5 too. I don't think its a coincidence that he will appear 5 feet 9 - 5 feet 9.5 to two different people at two different times and lifts is out of question here. Doesnt make sense to say that he looked 5 feet 8 in the movie or 5 feet 7 and most people say that he wears lifts so that will mean he is 5 feet 5 or something which is gross and ya one more thing which strikes me is that people here say he looked 5 feet 8 in shooter and other movies and chances are that he wasnt wearing lifts in the movie because we all know that he is a bare minimum of 5 feet 8 so why would he wear lifts on streets and while at his home when he doesnt wear them in movies.....doesn't make any logic or sense....wake up people he is 175 -177 range....i totally believe that. Upgrade Editor Rob.
Brah said on 16/Jun/07
Hmm, I don't know, Lady in the Pic. You look 5'4"-5'5" with both Glenn and Wahlberg.
Anthony said on 16/Jun/07
That pic proves Glenn is 5'8.
glenn said on 16/Jun/07
great pic.but as she would agree.that whole block is tricky cause its all hills.thanks for posting it.

exactly sf.itll be interesting to see the pics of the girl with me.she has them.i was gonna take some on my camera too,but sure she'll post them.and im sure ill bump into her again.
glenn said on 16/Jun/07
we bumped into each other yesterday without reconizing each other.hunting for celebs at a hotel.she finally realised who i was by looking at my digital pic we just took of enrique eglesias.she is much more attractive in person.i was surprised.not that she wasnt in the pic here.we took pics too.

Editor Rob
nice story!
sf said on 16/Jun/07
In the USA, what your ID shows, doesnt matter, as you can tell whoever is issuing your ID, ANY height you want. I have never been meausured at the Driver's License Station, but that really doesn't matter for this conversation.

I still insist if they were back to back, he'd be 5'11" in that pic. In glenns' pics with Mark, Mark has a slight advantage in both pictures and I can see side-by-side, back-to-back, how he might be 5'8" or so. NO way 5'9" or more. I love how people take one sighting/picture as gospel and say "time for an upgrade." Glenn even said 5'7" or 5'8" years ago. LIFTS!!!!!!!!!!
derbi said on 16/Jun/07
I just got back from a holiday week, a read through the new posts and saw the new pic...
The woman said that she's 5'6" and Glenn confirmed it. Now, both Glenn and this woman saw wahlberg in sneakers/casuals, without lifts almost for sure. And both of them said 5'9.25"! I believe them, and a little over 5'9" is also what he looks to me. I think the time has come for a little upgrade on this page for mark wahlberg!
Bombay Rocker said on 16/Jun/07
How do you know her glenn btw? Is she an actress too?
leonari said on 16/Jun/07
Saw 3 Kings yesterday again. STanding next to Clooney he looks 2- 2.5 inches Shorter which puts him at 5'8"
glenn said on 16/Jun/07
she is 5-6.i hung out with her.
Bombay Rocker said on 16/Jun/07
Where you from dunken?
Yoyoyo said on 16/Jun/07
Why does Mark Wahlberg everytime look like he's going to half kill someone?
Dunken said on 15/Jun/07
sf: "nobody" is going a bit too far.

i don't know how it works in the USA, but here we get measured for our ID's, barefeet, if we wish so.

my ID shows 168cm (5'6), which is correct, as does my mom's 158cm (5'2.5) and my GF's 165cm (5'5).
sf said on 15/Jun/07
Really look at that picture. If Marky Mark stood straight up, and back to back with that woman, he'd be 5'11". I Don't believe she is 5'6". Just last weekend, my neighbors' daughter (Stephanie) insisted she was 5'7" or 5'8". I told her there was no way and that she was not any taller than me. I'm a little over 5'6". so, we stood back to back and my neighbor said I was a little taller, which puts Stephanie at only 5'6" or so. The second it's proven that I'm a little taller, she says, "so, yeah, I'm about 5'7" or 5'8".

Get my point? Even after measuring her, proving she wasn't much taller than 5'6", she insisted she was as much as two inches taller. NOBODY knows their correct height, and I suspect the woman in the photo is fudging too. Marky Mark is 5'8", tops...
MD said on 14/Jun/07
I guess Rob should take him up to 5'10" then, huh? lol
leonari said on 14/Jun/07
Still go with 5'8" plus lifts...
Viper said on 14/Jun/07
Thats the tallest Ive ever seen Wahlberg If that chick is really 5-6.
Bombay Rocker said on 14/Jun/07
So lady in the pic, were you 5 feet 6 in those flats or 5 feet 6 without em?
glenn said on 14/Jun/07
5-9.25 is what i last saw him at too.she is right.what he is barefoot,we will never know.happy birthday shredder!!!!!!!!!!!!
the shredder said on 14/Jun/07
Lady In The Pic , you are HOT ! ... BTW , its my birth day today people !

Editor Rob
happy birthday, how old now?
Lady In The Pic said on 13/Jun/07
That is me in the picture. I said in the message that Mark is wearing sneakers, so add an inch or a little less, I guess. And, plus look at his hair. He is about 5'9 to 5'9 1/4, people.
Bombay Rocker said on 13/Jun/07
First of all, there is no camera angle trickery, i think this is one of the best shots to judge his height, if we really really trust that women is 5 feet 6, ya u can argue about marks shoes but since he's looking very sporty in that jacket and t shirt, i doubt it although not sure but i think he is wearing casuals there. I don't think that women's posture is that bad but if that women is 5 feet 6 and marks wearing casuals and the women is wearing flats then mark definitely looks about 178 - 179 there perhaps 178. Since glenn saw him at 5 feet 9.25 which is about 176, i'll go for that since i trust glenn and even in glenn's new pic with mark, he looks around 3.5 cms taller than glenn. Considering his pics with his brother donnie, if donnie is really no more than which i think, mark looks around 1 inch shorter than him so maybe close to 5 feet 9 and that is what glenn said so for me 5 feet 9 maybe.
MD said on 13/Jun/07
She's simply not 5'6".
Lmeister said on 13/Jun/07
Ok the girl probably is 5'6'', if she says so with flats and not the best posture she is the same as her max height confusing ain't it. Marky Mark is about 4 inches taller. The answer is work boots and camera angles. 5'6''+ 2'' = 5'8'' + 2 inches for boots --> 5'10''ish. Mark is still 5'8''ish...
sf said on 13/Jun/07
Gimme a way that woman is 5'6", or Mark is 5'11".
TheJerk said on 13/Jun/07
Well if the lady is 5-6 then Mark is looking "tall" there over 5-8. Thing is, I dont think he is over 5-8 though.
dmeyer said on 13/Jun/07
in some scene in departed looked 5'6.75 other scene 5'8 but i agree in italian job he looks easy as tall as jason and no mush shorter than theron in heels i guess angles and monster elevators
Bombay Rocker said on 13/Jun/07
Rob, i'll go with you mate, whatever you think suits mark coz there has been so much hoopla over mark that i don't even wanna guess his height. Some say he's just 5 feet 7 some say he is close to 5 feet 10, precisely 5 feet 9.5. Just throw in your opinion mate.
glenn said on 9/Jun/07
i agree warnabro.i couldve sworn he was 5-7,58 years ago.
WarnABro said on 9/Jun/07
He actually does look quite the bit taller than you Glenn
Leung said on 7/Jun/07
Matt Damon has 2-3 inches on Wahlberg in The Departed which supports Matt Damon being 5
Lmeister said on 7/Jun/07
I just saw the Departed. a great movie. the fact is that when he is wearing normal dress shoes he looks 5'7''- 5'8''. In bulky Timberlands he can look 5'9''ish.
yeah said on 6/Jun/07
i believe hes more like 174-175 cm, just lock at the pic with him and hes brother donnie it looks to be only about 3-4 cm,at most! between them, and he looks taller then 173 cm glenn in both pics. but he does look about 173 cm on screen and next to other co-workers but maybe he
glenn said on 5/Jun/07
thank you should get rid of that guy who made up that tom cruise on tv saing he was 5-7 too.

his final comment, not shown, was a few insults. I guess his true 'class' shone through in the end, that of a neanderthal whose only encounter with a celebrity is looking at photos in Cosmo Girl.

5'7 / 5'8 technically isn't short ... in the real world.

Keep in mind that many A-List movie actors of the 1990s/2000s generation are in the 5'11 - 6'2 range, so a 5'7/5'8 actor alongside them will "appear" short. Yet that is only 2 inches or so below the U.S. Average (5'9.5).

In the duration of the week, I have been to a grocery, bank, and electronic superstore. I'm 5'7.5-.75ish (Maybe 5'8 in the morning) and I was far from the shortest person in the lines. (And yes, age, race and demographics were also factored in.)

Ironically, most of the "5'7/8 is SHORT!" comments on CH seem to come from those who are 5'10-5'11. 5'10-5'11 is by no means the "Top of the Food Chain" ...

... I sense a Napoleonic Complex.

mark was 5-9.25 in the newer he has to be no smaller than 5-8.
Leung said on 20/May/07
Watched Shooter last night, it seemed a bit long but still a decent movie. With regards to his height Marky Mark appeared his usual self, 5
CinemaNepon said on 20/May/07
I wrote "well over 2 inches", not "2 inches".
derbi said on 20/May/07
CinemaNepon, you have to consider that charlize theron is 5'9.5" and is always in heels so she is like 6'0.5". So you said she is 2 inches taller, then that would make wahlberg 5'10.5" in shoes. Just what you've written...
CinemaNepon said on 19/May/07
Charlize Theron towered over Wahlberg in THE ITALIAN JOB by well over 2 inches, Donald Sutherland even more. So between 5'7 - 5'7.5.

5'7 - 5'8 is slightly below the U.S. National average for men (5'9.5) That's only a difference of 1-2 inches, which could be taken away by 3" heel combat boots.

If you could surpass the National Average with the right footwear
(excluding gothic platform fetish boots) then you're not short.
anonymous said on 19/May/07
i would give him 5`8, and 5`8.25 max, 5`7 min. he is slightly taller than glenn however.
Viper said on 14/May/07
Hes looked bigger in overall size on screen, but not so much height.
Drew said on 14/May/07
"One girlfriend said: "You look about 6ft 2in on screen.""

HAHAHA. Was she on acid? This guy is 5'7".
kevin said on 13/May/07
why did he said "But I had to face reality: I'm only 5 feet 10" ?? when 5'10 isn't a bad height though, this is guy is listed at 5'7 in I.M.D.B.
leonari said on 9/May/07
Sam: So "how" short was Wahlberg????
derbi said on 8/May/07
Leonari and UNK, nice to see that we are agreeing more and more...
But leonari I didn't say 173 top, I said he doesn't shrink under 173, just a very solid 5'8", like 174 cm in the morning and 173 cm in the evening.
This would also explain the height difference between wahlberg and glenn. And btw I don't think wahlberg wears lifts, and I don't know why, but I think it just wouldn't suit the marky mark he used to be...
leonari said on 7/May/07
I agree with Derbi!!!! incredible... 173 cm is top of the scale for him...on bad days where he doesn't sleep much : he is less!
UNK said on 7/May/07
Glad to see you being open minded Derbi. I agree a solid 5'8".

He could have appeared 5'9.25" to Glenn for many reasons.
First of all it's real hard to say a guy appeared to the .25".
Second, you don't know what are in his shoes.
Third, hats and hairstyles throw things off.
Fourth, posture and uneven ground.
Fifth, an error in judgement.
derbi said on 6/May/07
Please guys answear glenns question:
glenn says on 1/May/07
why did he look 5-9.25 when i saw him?

And I have to say that I have changed my mind about his height. My guess now is, that he is 5'8", in the morning probably 174, just that he is a very solid 5'8", I mean that he doesn't shrink much during the day, so that he is 5'8"/173 at his lowest. So Glenn that would also answear your question. If you shrink to 5'7.25" during the day, but wahlberg is still a full 5'8" in the evening, he could appear 5'9" to you.
Anonymous said on 3/May/07
He's listed as 5'7
leonari said on 1/May/07
viper I agree. Arquette almost always looks kinda tall on screen.
glenn said on 1/May/07
why did he look 5-9.25 when i saw him?
Viper said on 30/Apr/07
Leonari, to put it in perspective David Arquette, who could be as short as 5-9 1/2 can look 6-0 on screen. Yet Wahlberg looked 5-6 in the Departed.
the shredder said on 30/Apr/07
I buy nothing but the 5'7.5 I read !!!
leonari said on 30/Apr/07
If he is almost 5'9" he is one of the smallest lookings 5'9" guys on screen. At 5'9" you can look tall on screen. Not a single movie where mark gives the impression of tallish...not a single one...

5'8" top of the scale...
Viper said on 28/Apr/07
5-7.25 is as high as I will go.
the shredder said on 28/Apr/07
Yep Jon , that may prove that the 5'7 and 1/2 claim I saw could be true !!!
leonari said on 27/Apr/07
Jon: I agree.
Jon said on 27/Apr/07
doesnt really help, but in the film "Shooter" , he looks very short. Shorter and smaller than almost every other actor on the film, even the smaller- average looking guys. He doesnt look a 5'10''. In that film, he looks 5'7'' to 5'8''. I know it doesnt help judging on what they look like- but in that film he did strike me and even my mates commented on how short he looked, especially when i though he was taller
5'11 guy said on 26/Apr/07
I see around an inch difference. Don't judge by the eye levels--Wahlberg has a very tall forehead.
Viper said on 25/Apr/07
I dont see an inch between Wahlbeg and Glenn. They look of similar height with Wahlberg maybe having a half inch advtange.
derbi said on 25/Apr/07
viper, but what is with the second pic? wahlberg is in casual shoes, and clearly looks about an inch taller than glenn.
dmeyer said on 24/Apr/07
in the parking scene he looked 5'8 but by alec he looks 5'7 max
glenn said on 24/Apr/07
viper is right on that illusion.ive made that mistake before.
Viper said on 23/Apr/07
"No, Viper, I'm going to take a wild guess and say nobody else can honestly see that except you. This is coming from one of the same people who thinks Pitt looks disproportional, as if he had limb-lengthening."

Making up things as we go along I see now Horse. I never said I thought Pitt had surgery because of that one photo.
Viper said on 23/Apr/07
You move Wahlberg back to where Glenn is and it looks like Wahlberg would be the same height or an inch shorter than Glenn, not taller.
Viper said on 23/Apr/07
Well, Ive also made the mistake a couple of times of people who I thought was taller than me, and in reality I was the taller one. Just saying.
derbi said on 22/Apr/07
viper, i think the photo was taken from the bottom up, what makes you think that glenn could be taller. But glenn said wahlberg was 1-2 inches taller. So viper, wanna say that you know it better thn glenn or what? Give it up, wahlberg isn't 5'7".
Viper said on 22/Apr/07
Its not a strange angle at all. Wahlberg is cloer to the camera.
glenn said on 22/Apr/07
i was 5-7 then.but i remember him being taller by an inch or 2.yes.
derbi said on 22/Apr/07
viper, its a strange angle in the first pic and wahlberg for shore isn't shorter than glenn in it. Proof is that glenn said wahlberg was 1-2 inches taller than him back then. So how could he be taller?
The Horse of FUNK said on 22/Apr/07

Glenn is taller than Wahlberg in the first picture. Can anybody not see that? Wahlberg is closer to the camera.
derbi said on 21/Apr/07
leonai, yes thats right, but if you have wahlbergs next to sheens haircut that can make wahlber look easily an inch shorter at first sight...
leonari said on 21/Apr/07
derbi: it ain't because of his haircut but rather because he is pretty heavy in Departed compared to Shooter for example. He looks stumpy in Departed.
Anonymous said on 20/Apr/07
He never looks that short derbi? Are you kidding me?
5'11 guy said on 20/Apr/07
Dicaprio referred to Wahlberg as a "pretty big guy" during an interview. You don't call a 5'6-5'7 guy "pretty big" regardless of how much muscle he has. I'm now thinking more 5'8.5 for Wahlberg.
derbi said on 20/Apr/07
glenn, yes at first sight he probably looked under 5'8" in the departed, but if you look exactly I think you see thatz it's just an illusion, mostly because of hi hair cut, but not only
glenn said on 20/Apr/07
not true.he did look shorter than 5-8 in the i know that was probably an illusion.
derbi said on 20/Apr/07
viper, the 5'7" is out of question. he never looks that short, and if you don't believe me then trust glenn, he said 5'7" is excluded for wahlberg....
I don't know why you wanna have him at that height, but he just isn't. He is 5'8"-5'9" midday height.
Viper said on 20/Apr/07
Wahlberg sure looked 5-7 to me when he was being interviewed after the Golden Globes this year. He looked pretty short. This guy appears more 5-9 when in lifts.
Bombay Rocker said on 19/Apr/07
Cmon, and have a look at his sneakers. They have a heel of around 3 cmd amd i don't know if they have lifts. Besides i think he doesn't wear sneakers that often. He wears dress suits a lot and so he obviously wears dress shoes and we all know that they can have lifts and you won't even know it and hes a big star so he obviously buys one's which are really really good in deceiving people. One more thing i just saw shooter yesterday since it was released just yesterday here and he looks a strong 5 feet 8 perhaps close to 5 feet 9 but not an mm more than that.
derbi said on 19/Apr/07
bomby rocker, I agree except on the lift thing. He wears a lot of sneakers. Only crazy height obsessed guys would wear lifts in them. So I think he isn't...
Bombay Rocker said on 18/Apr/07
Horse of funk is exactly right. That's what i have been saying along, that he never looks shorter than 5 feet 8 and he can look close to 176 even at night so that means a minimum of 5 feet 10 in the morning but i am sure that is lifts but how much, i can't say but if i had to guess i will say 1 inch maybe 3 cm but not more which will mean that he is a very very strong 173, perhaps a strong 174 even, no less than that and maybe a weak 175 and i am taking night height's here. I really believe he is somewhere in 173 - 175 range so maybe 174 makes sense now.
derbi said on 18/Apr/07
The Horse of FUNK, I think so too. I'd say 5'9".
The Horse of FUNK said on 18/Apr/07
Honestly, this guy NEVER appears a mm shorter than 5'8". He consistently appears anywhere from 5'8" - 5'9.5". Somewhere in between I believe lies the truth (like 5'8.5", for example).
Rocky said on 18/Oct/06
More than a 4 inch difference leonari if you account for Mark's hair...assuming that de'caprio is generously listed as 6'0'' instead of 5'11.5'', that would be 5'8'' max for Mark...but not less than 5'7'' though. I wouldn't go by the lowest ones possible (5'6'') or the highest ones possible (5'9'') either.
Glenn said on 18/Oct/06
Lifts arnt the answer to everything.not everyone wears them,and Im sure the newer actors arnt aware of it.
leonari said on 17/Oct/06
HelloKitty: you don't seem to grasp the "hollywood rules" ! Many many actors wear lifts. Thats a fact!
leonari said on 17/Oct/06
HelloKitty: he is the shortest by far in this pic! look at the difference btw him and Dicaprio!!!substancial!!! looks like a 4 inch or almost 4 inch difference!
Glenn said on 17/Oct/06
He was close to my height,or my height when I met him 14 years ago.
HelloKitty said on 16/Oct/06
Derbi you're right, between the hunky men in the pic, Marky Mark looks to be the shortest.

derbi said on 16/Oct/06
leonari, you know just by the way: not everyone over 5'6 is a lift wearer!
and baldwin is for shore bigger than 5'11 if he looks taller than cicaprio...
leonari said on 16/Oct/06
Glenn: Sorry but I really doubt that Martin Sheen was 5'8" at his peak...No way was he almost as tall as son Charlie...Maybe he was 5'7" in his prime but 5'8" is out of the question...No way is he taller than 5'6" these days. Lifts wearer.
Glenn said on 15/Oct/06
Martin Sheen was 5-7,5-8 in his prime.and for the last time,Baldwin is a legit 6ft.
Ed said on 14/Oct/06
If Martin Sheen is 5ft6, Wahlberg has to be shorter than 5ft8. There wasn't a big difference between these two in The Departed. Damon looked about 1.5 to 2 inches taller than Wahlberg, and Dicaprio looked a good 2 inches taller than Damon, and Baldwin was bigger than all of them and he's only 5ft11. I'm guessing Wahlberg's a bit less than what Rob has him listed at, and his shoes looked pretty thick in the movie.
derbi said on 13/Oct/06
Click Here
here the pic. leonari, its right what you are saying but: 1. If you want to compare heights than you have to look at the hairs. if you'd cut leos and wahlbergs hairs off, I think there would be about a 2 inch deference between wahlberg and nicholson, and for shore less than that between nicholson and dicaprio! So either wahlberg and dicaprio are shorter than thaught, ore nicholson had a growspurt at 69 :P
Viper652 said on 12/Oct/06
If he was 5-7 1/2 he would be listed at 5-8 everywhere, which is not the case.
Lmeister said on 12/Oct/06
Get real derbi Marks bro Donnie is 5'10'' he is always taller in the family pics. Mark is in the 5'7.5''-5'8.5'' range. I think 5'8'' is rather accurate, but I really doubt him being closer to 5'7'' than to 5'8''...
Brah said on 11/Oct/06
I watched "The Departed" last night. In one scene, Wahlberg and Matt Damon face each other, and Damon has 2 inches on Wahlberg. Most say Damon is 5'9" to 5'10"...that makes Wahlberg, 5'7" to 5'8".
derbi said on 11/Oct/06
leonari, have you seen the italien job?
If yes you should have seen the huge height difference between seth green and mark wahlberg. And you should have seen that between charlize theron(5'9.5) in her high heels and wahlberg also isn't a big diferece. He really looked 5'9.5-5'10
leonari said on 11/Oct/06
Derbi: No I don't wanna post a picture of me Derbi. I just know from pics how I look next to 5'10" guys (Damon) and 6'0 guys like Dicaprio. Same difference on pictures. Anyways I belive he is quite close to 5'8"...not 5'7"...but you think he is close to 5'10" or something and that is plain WRONG my dear.
derbi said on 11/Oct/06
leung, sorry but thats stupid. You can say without problem if green comes up to someones nose, eyebrowe, or if someone has a full head on him!
derbi said on 10/Oct/06
leonari, is it possible that you just want to have wahlberg at 5'7 because you are? Or do you want to show us a pic of you?
I watched the italien job. Wahlberg has no spezial curious footwear on, and seth green really always just camey up to his nose! So if green is 5'4 it is stupid to say he looks 5'7...
leonari said on 10/Oct/06
and yeah: no way is Mark 5'10". if you really believe that you are a fool who fell for Hollywood fakes...stupid.
leonari said on 10/Oct/06
comparing Mark to Seth Green is idiotic. No reference point...
leonari said on 10/Oct/06
He is above 5'7" but not even an inch!! 5'8" in the morning out of bed, 5'7.5" during the day. Close enough to 5'8"
Lmeister said on 10/Oct/06
...but agree that he is in the 5'7.5''-5'8.5'' range...
Lmeister said on 10/Oct/06
Hmm guys Mos Def(5'9'') and Jason Statham(5'9''ish)are both taller than Marky Mark in the Italian job could it be that he wore lifts and guy like Seth Green doesn't even bother???
Leung said on 9/Oct/06
Viper652, in the Italian Job did you see a 5" or 6" difference between Wahlberg and Norton? Because I didn't. Also, if he was really 5'7" then he would have been obviously shorter than Theron. Come on people, 5'8"-5'8.5" is a more accurate estimate for Marky Mark.
mcfan said on 9/Oct/06
Is it possible he's only 5'7 -5'7.5? He looked really short next to Alec Baldwin and Matt Damon.
Viper652 said on 9/Oct/06
I thought he looked 5-7 in that movie.
acd said on 6/Oct/06
just watch the movie the italien job. He looks a good 5'9
The Man said on 6/Oct/06
I stood next to him at the night club Prey in West Hollywood. I am just barely 5'8. He and I were just about the same height.
derbi said on 3/Oct/06
UNK, with I dont't think he is the type who would wear lifts, I wanted to say that if someone is that self-confident to say: "I'm told that I look taller on screen. One girlfriend said: "You look about 6ft 2in on screen." People look at me and say: "My God, what happened?" I can look pretty ordinary away from films. The camera does things to all of us"
he probably won't wear lifts afterwards. And everybody knows him from his marky mark time where he was always wearing sneakers, so why should he change to lifts? And if he would really wear serious elevator shoes or lifts he would look bigger, like 5'11 in shoes or something like that. just look how sly is doing...
UNK said on 3/Oct/06
derbi - "But I don't think wahlberg is the type who would wear elevator shoes or lifts." - I know nothing about what type of person Wahlberg is and either do you.

"Nicholson looks whey to higher as listed on this site on that pic"
You can't see their feet and legs. And Jack only looks about an inch taller which goes to show that Wahlberg probably is closer 5'7" than 5'8". But my point is they are not barefoot back to back... they look close enough in that pic to both be in the 5'8" range, give or take a 1/2".
derbi said on 3/Oct/06
MD, I know there are elevator shoes in that style, but they just give you about 1 inch height advantage. But I don't think wahlberg is the type who would wear elevator shoes or lifts.
UNK, Nicholson looks whey to higher as listed on this site on that pic. he should just look half an inch or something bigger than wahlberg...
MD said on 2/Oct/06
Derbi, lifts are worn in dress shoes, all the time. In fact, almost exclusively in dress shoes. You're still reaching for straws. This guys routinely looks taller in premieres and TV apperances than in candid shots. He's definitely a lift wearer.
UNK said on 2/Oct/06
How is there something wrong with any of their heights in that pic??? They look exactly like I would expect them too. Who's height looks wrong? We know Walhberg is about 5'7.5", Nicholson is probaby slightly taller than him. And the others two look exactyl like I would expect them too.
derbi said on 2/Oct/06
MD, you are right, something is wrong if at least one of the heights in that pic. nicholson looks a solid 5'10... But thats a bit crazy. But wahlberg is for shore not wearing lifts. He has normal dress shoes on. Ok he could hide 1 inch lifts in them, but thats ridiculous because lift in that kind of shoes are really unconfortable... and he has to stand a lot at premiers

With Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, and Jack Nicholson which means at least one of these guy's height is incorrect, and keeping in mind Mark wears lifts at most premieres:

The photo isn't so much to prove anything about Mark as it is to prove that at least one of the heights of the other three is incorrect.

On the Ja Rule message board, I posted something about this but only heavysets with big guts look shorter than they are, something in the mold of a Wayne Knight for instance. Many heavyset people do look taller than they are, e.g. Ving Rhames.
Lmeister said on 29/Sep/06
Guys with large/wide shoulders+SHORT LEGS...appear shorter...
MD said on 28/Sep/06
Large/wide shoulders actually make people look taller, not shorter.
kevin said on 28/Sep/06
I think in some occsions he looks smaller than he really is because of hi muscles and large shoulders.
Lmeister said on 28/Sep/06
You are right Rocky. People can look different height in different occasions. For instance some have said that I look like 5'9.5'' and some that I look like 5'6''(I used to be a sloucher). Actually I'm 5'8''.
Rocky said on 25/Sep/06
One thing everyone must pay attention to is not go by the very lowest estimate possible nor the highest one. 5'6'' is too little, 5'9''-5'10'' is high - I'm guessing 5'7.5'' - 5'8'' is accurate - I'd say 5'7.5'' but a half inch is not readily noticable so 5'8'' can very well be true, not a result of a 5'6'' person like Ja Rule saying he's 5'9''.
Polska said on 25/Sep/06
Derbi, I didn't realize you met him. Since you say you can't base an estimate only on pictures and you're ignoring the opinions of people like Glenn and Wahlberg's PA, it must be the case that you've met him. Please, do tell about your encounter.
derbi said on 25/Sep/06
viper652, possbible but you just don't base your opinion on somehting like a pic...
Viper652 said on 24/Sep/06
Hes 5-7 derbi.
derbi said on 23/Sep/06
I haven't said he wasn't short. But he clearly doesn't look that short as 5'7, where you want to have him!
Polska said on 22/Sep/06
Push down?

Lol, notice you're the only one making the claim that Wahlberg is taller than 5'8"? It's because it's so overwhelmingly clear at this point that he isn't that any rational thinking person could see this. His PA spends loads of time with him and says he's 5'7", Glenn has met him on numurous occasions and says he's 5'7"-5'7.5" and the above pic shows he's at most the same height as Glenn. I don't know what your deal is but you keep spamming this board with the same nonsense over and over. You've stated your opinion and restating it over and over isn't going to convince anyone, it just annoys everyone.
derbi said on 22/Sep/06
polska I'm I 16 year old 5'8 boy, but it's ok... And you? probably a 4 feet man who wants to push down all the heights of the celebs?
Polska said on 22/Sep/06
I like how derbi says that Ice Cube cleary has an advantage being in the foreground but in the above photo Mark would still obviously be taller than Glenn.

I'm putting my money on debri being a 17 yo 5'9" girl who just discovered her main man may not be tall enough for her.
MD said on 21/Sep/06
Are you delusional, Derbi?! Why do I even ask?
derbi said on 21/Sep/06
viper, yes clear you can tell that he would be shorter than he is looking now, but you can't tell if he would look shorter than Glenn...
Viper652 said on 20/Sep/06
You can tell that If Wahlberg stepped back towards Glenn he would be shorter.
MD said on 20/Sep/06
Derbi, seriously, are you ill? If he has an advantage being the foreground, that would mean he'd have a disadvantage if he moved into the background with Glenn. What are you not getting? Seriously?
derbi said on 20/Sep/06
MD, I think you misunderstood me, and no I you... Its clear to me that wahlberg has the advantage. But if he stood back you can't say if he would look same height smaller or bigger than Glenn.
And Polska yes wahlberg looks shorter than ice cube but wahlberg is much in the background.
Polska said on 20/Sep/06
Give it up derbi, even his personal assistant Eric Weinstein said this about his height on Click Here

"How about tall enough and around 170 normally........ok..."

It's obvious this guy is no more than 5'8".

I also read an article about his casting in Invincible a while back and a co-star described him as "only like 5'8"" and said they had to cast shorter actors to make him look bigger on the field. I can't find the link now, however.

Finally, here he is with Ice Cube, who is generously listed at 5'8" on this site, looking very much equal if not shorter: Click Here
MD said on 19/Sep/06
No, you are completely misunderstanding me. You can compare heights taking into account the placement of people in a photo. It's quite obvious how much shorter Mark would really look if he stepped back to the same scale as Glenn. Mark's placement at the front of the photo gives him the advantage, not the disadvantage. I can't help that you have a hard time judging heights.
derbi said on 19/Sep/06
MD, thats what I have said. I said that you can't really compare the heights of glenn and wahlberg in the pic...
And wahlberg looks for shore not just 2 inches bigger than than 5'5 scott ian. More like 3 or 3.5 inches
MD said on 18/Sep/06
It's just no use arguing, anymore. If anything, Glenn has a disadvantage in the photo for being in the background, not an advantage.
Glenn said on 18/Sep/06
The guy in the right is for sure not his friend.thats the guitar player for heavy metal band Anthrax,Scott Ian(5-5).the two didnt know each other.maybe Mark is 5-8,but no way any bigger.but very possibly a hair smaller.

leonari, probably youre right but he still looks bigger than 5'7 to me. on page 2 pic 775522 you see him with a boy, a friend of him or I don't know who. The guy looks 3-4 inches shorter than him, with 5'7 for wahlberg that would make him 5'3-5'4 what is really short for a man. I mean wahlberg has always friend next to him who are a cuple of inches shorter than him! (by the way just look a the pic with Glenn...)
And yeah, I'd still like to see a pic of wahlberg next to somebody where he really looks 5'7

derbi: take a closer look at picture #50734825. Donnie is in such a slouch position that it's not helping to compare their heights...btw I am 5'7" and when my best friend who is 5'10" himself is slouching and I have good posture we look almost the same height. MARK is 5'7" maybe 5'7.5" but nothing above that. His torso is huge that creates the impression THAT HE IS TALLER .ESPECIALLY IN PICTURES AND MOVIES
derbi said on 18/Sep/06
MD, at the pic with Glenn wahlberg looks bigger but Glenn is in the background, so that you can't really use this pic to compare their heights...

if you search for images of marky mark, then on page 3 look at pic number 50734825. mark next to his brother donnie (5'10). They both aren't standing streight up, mark is in sneakers and if he was 5'7 he would look much shorter next to a 5'10...
Leung, at premieres wahlberg is wearing dres shoes. I think to hide lifts in this typ pf shoes would be really unconfortable, and hard to walk in... and if you look at hs legs at premieres, they seem pretty short, and I think that they'd look longer with lifts
Leung said on 17/Sep/06
I admit that Wahlberg can sometimes look 5
derbi said on 17/Sep/06
i think he would look shorter if he was 5'7. To me he looks like 5'8-5'9
Glenn said on 17/Sep/06
I think he can look taller.but he is suspiciously 5-7 I think.
derbi said on 17/Sep/06
I'm not shore. Because I mean do you have just one pic where he really looks 5'7?
Viper652 said on 17/Sep/06
Well the man has looked around 5-7 in his entire career.
derbi said on 15/Sep/06
viper I don't think that you can just see with your eyes if wahlberg is 1 inch smaller or taller when you see him in a film... thats a little bit ridiculous
derbi said on 15/Sep/06
i don't think that you can see the height difference of just 1 inch just with your eyes...
Viper652 said on 15/Sep/06
Wahlberg does looks pretty short in most movies to me. 5-7 looks dead on really.
derbi said on 14/Sep/06
Viper652, over the internet hes billed 5'7-5'9.
Click Here
On this site he even got listed at 5'11, so you can't just refer to the smalest height you found for him...

Editor Rob
what's funny is that both wahlberg brothers have gone on record and claimed 5ft 10...donnie at least isn't adding 2 inches to his claim
derbi said on 14/Sep/06
no next to 6' or 6'1 guys he can really look a solid 5'9. I'd give him at least 5'8.5
Viper652 said on 14/Sep/06
Derbi, I base it on Glenn's picture along with the movies and most pictures Ive seen of him besides actors I know of their real heights. Not to mention hes billed at 5-7 all over the internet.
Glenn said on 14/Sep/06
could be Leung.but he can look 5-7 at times.
Leung said on 13/Sep/06
No question about it, Marky Mark is short, but 5
derbi said on 13/Sep/06
Viper652- you say he truly is 5-7. On what do you base that?
Viper652 said on 13/Sep/06
He truly is 5-7.
derbi said on 13/Sep/06
with 5'7 or less he would look shorter compared to others. to me he looks more like 5'8 or 5'9...
Editor Rob said on 13/Sep/06
1997 'estimate' "Wahlberg, 26, is much shorter than he looks on-screen -- 5 foot 7 at most", fransisco chronicle.
MD said on 12/Sep/06
Tallpeople suck, if you don't care about this issue, why are you here? Just leave and you won't have to be worried.
derbi said on 12/Sep/06
the pic with doesn't prove anything. because wahlberg looks bigger in the pic but glenn is in the background. So you can not know how it would look if they where on same level...
Viper652 said on 12/Sep/06
I think Mark saying hes 5-10 is more out there than anybody Obsessed With Height.
MD said on 11/Sep/06

He's not anything over 5'8" as shown by Glenn's pic, and most likely half and inch or an inch shorter. Why don't you get that, and why do you keep spamming the thread?
derbi said on 10/Sep/06
Click Here
on page 22 next to 6'1 carson daly he has about half an inch footwear advantage but he looks like a solid 5'9-5'9.5
derbi said on 9/Sep/06
no, I don't think he was wearing lifts. Because if he has to stand in a show during I don't know how long, it would be really unconfortable...
So me theory is: wahlberg looks 5'10 next to 6'2 damian fahey. But he has about 1 inch advantage with his boots. So that would make mark wahlberg 5'9!
Editor Rob said on 9/Sep/06
I should have mentioned other part of his quote, was: "I had basketball dreams, too...but I had to face reality: I'm only 5 feet 10".
derbi said on 9/Sep/06
MD- in the pic with michaek nouri he was wearing dress shoes, so probably 1 inch lifts, but i don't think he was wearing some. and with damin fahey just look at the pic you've posted, wahlberg hasn't thick booted shoes one, just about an inch or a bit over of sole.....

[Editor Rob: those are close to 1.5, depends on the insole...or if he has any other 'extra' insole in those boots]
MD said on 8/Sep/06
Looks like Mark is wearing lifts at his premiere recently.

I've noticed how much taller he looks at premieres

Thicked-booted with 6'2" Damien Fahey (who I think is 6'1" barefoot)

He still looked short in italian job to me.
Glenn said on 7/Sep/06
5-10 as one of his charecters or in heels?
Anonymous said on 7/Sep/06
he wear lifts on italian job since he looked good near theron in heels
D. Ray Morton said on 7/Sep/06
"1995 Newsweek magazine: "But I had to face reality: I'm only 5 feet 10""

Who said that, Wahlberg? Hilarious.
derbi said on 7/Sep/06
6-1 ? what are you trying to make him shorter than he is or what?
with that height he wouldnt be that much bigger than tyrese in thick heeled boots in 2 fast 2 furious...
Viper652 said on 7/Sep/06
Derbi, Paul isnt 6-3 lol, hes 6-1 at his abloute Max. Wahlberg looks 5-7 at his abolute Max.
