How tall is Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg's Height

5ft 8 (172.7 cm)

American actor, best known for roles in films such as Ted, The Italian Job, Boogie Nights and Three Kings. He stated his height in Newsweek, Mar 1995: "But I had to face reality: I'm only 5 feet 10"", although his brother Donnie also claims "5ft 10", and Mark looks a couple of inches smaller. He also mentioned once that "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.". In 2011 he mentioned his weight, saying "I weigh about 185 [pounds]".

Mark Wahlberg is 5'7.5 he isn't as short as you guys make him out to be. With that being said 5'7 8 and 9 are not short heights. Those are average heights. Very few guys are 6'0 and most range in the 5'7 to 5'11 range with 15% over and 15% under.
Moneymaker! said on 10/Sep/23
Didn't look short in Four Brothers. Looked pretty short in The Departed. He's 5'8"
Jay37 said on 7/Sep/23
5'10" in his dreams. The guy needs to accept reality that he's 5'8". This listing is accurate.
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 28/May/23
Rob, you should have a look at the film we own the night. Watched it earlier and it's clear marky mark is shorter than Joaquin. I don't really see Joaquin as a lift wearer either.
gerpenheimer said on 19/May/23
He is not 5'8. He is 5'6 and a little over a half without lifts.
Simon Horwell said on 5/May/23
He looks around 5’7” to me.
shoelifts said on 13/Apr/23
5f7 1/2 for him
There is no way Wahlberg is 5ft8 without lifts in his shoes, I'm not buying that listing Rob sorry !
Rockaway said on 13/Apr/23
Would be willing to bet he dips below 5’8” by dinner time
Editor Rob

He might dip a bit under it, but lowest I could imagine is 5ft 7.75
viper said on 11/Apr/23
He really needs a downgrade to 5-7.5
Keith Collins said on 9/Apr/23
I thought he looked very small in patriots day
6ix7oot6ix said on 31/Mar/23
With megan stallion he looked atleast 2 inches shorter than her knowing shes 5’9 1/2 he must be 5’7 1/2
viper said on 29/Mar/23
5-7.5 maybe

Somewhere 5-7.25-5-7.5

He's definitely under 5-8
shoelifts said on 28/Mar/23
Rob, I think he is overlisted
5ft7 1/2
sometimes wearing enhanced shoes
Jazzy3000 said on 28/Mar/23
Definitely under 5’8”.

5’8 Flat 172.6 or 7

I'm struggling to copy links but Google image search Joaquin phoenix mark wahlberg. In every pic Joaquin looks taller.
Mariot said on 25/Sep/22
Maybe 172 is more like it, could be his hair giving him extra height.
Jade Pixie said on 30/Aug/22
Like Will Smith, Mark was originally a rapper he was the frontman of the rap group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch during the early 90s before he went on to have a very successful acting career. I believe Mark should be put in the American rapper category.
5'7 and a bit said on 4/Jul/22
He's kind of a tricky one tbh. Looks kind of short most of the time, not slightly below average. That might be partially down to his build though. Nothing more than 5'8 and possibly a tiny hair below.
Big Rob would definitely edge.
Josh Jeffords said on 20/May/22
This is generous he is probably shorter than me.
Ravi brogeshwar said on 5/May/22
Hey rob, did u see mark Wahlberg with tom holand, if hollands a 5"6 ½ , mark struggles to look a full 5"8 , he looks 5"7 ¾ - 5"7 ½ with holland, downgrade needed for mark
Mark'sHeight . said on 27/Apr/22
@James B 171.5cm

Nowadays it's obvious that Mel struggles to hit a strong 5'9 so even if that is the case my point still stands as that would make 171.5cm (5'7.5) the max height possible for Mark.
James B 171.5cm said on 26/Apr/22
gibson looks 5'9.5 if mark is 5'8
Mark'sHeight said on 13/Apr/22
If Mark is 5'8, Gibson deserves around 5'10 (judging from the picture above) but Gibson is no more than 5'9.

170-171.5cm for Mark.
IceCold said on 13/Apr/22
That is not only an inch between him and Gibson
IceCold said on 13/Apr/22
Doesn't look much taller than Holland. He looks 171-172
oguz said on 26/Mar/22
Rob I think this guy needs a downgrade to 5'7,5"
Miiiiiiighty_- said on 23/Mar/22
That's certainly one generous 5'8 here Rob.

He is 171 max imo
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 19/Mar/22
Can you at least give him a quarter inch downgrade Rob? He doesn't have 1.5 inches on Tom Holland
Original said on 9/Mar/22
Between 5'7.5 and 5'7.75".
viper said on 28/Feb/22
He's in the 5-7-5-7.5 range

Think he's 5-7.25 exactly
Peaky Blinder said on 27/Feb/22
Do you think he shrank? Bcs he is 50 year old and looks barely taller than 169 Holland and Dj Khaled
Editor Rob
I doubt Mark has shrunk yet
CookieCutter said on 26/Feb/22
Again taller than Joe Rogan but no taller than 5'7. If he took of his lifts he would be the same height as Holland so 5'7 for this little guy.
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 25/Feb/22

Can't see Holland less than 5'6.5.
viper said on 23/Feb/22
Is Holland really as tall as 5-6.5
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 22/Feb/22
He only looks 1-1.25 inches taller than 5'6.5 Tom Holland. 5'7.75 max.
nehal said on 12/Feb/22
Rob, today, just now I almost cried out laughing
In an Uncharted clip, Mark says to Tom that "We gotta get smaller, oh in your case your already small", Tom replies "your are just like an inch taller", Mark says in his own tough guy way, "oh you bet it's more than that".
Editor Rob
Yeah here's a link to that Joke.

I hope there is more of the cat in the film.

Father Stu movie trailer is proof this guy is 5 FOOT 6. He looks no taller in the mugshot line up

5-7.5 is the absolute highest I can buy for him.

A downgrade to 5-7.5 would more accurate imo

Yup, he's a least 5'8. The 5'7 talk is silly; look at him with an honest 5'6.5 Holland.

Yeah 5ft8 seems fair.
Hong said on 6/Feb/22
Click Here Here's Mark with 5ft6.5 listed Tom Holland
Heightist9999 said on 6/Feb/22
Seeing him with Holland, Mark should be a comfortable 5'8. Average guess just got thrown under a bus.
viper said on 1/Feb/22
He really looks too short to be 5-8

Maybe he scrapes 5-7.5 but he really looks 5-7-5-7.25
Jtm said on 1/Feb/22
I believe 5’8 is the tallest he could claim without embarrassing himself. Btw I was watching this movie he was in with Kurt Russell recently and one scene it looked like Russell was barefoot and wahlberg was wearing boots and Russell was still taller.
Omar174cm said on 30/Jan/22
5ft8 i think maybe 5ft8.5 max he doesnt look so short
CookieCutter said on 30/Jan/22
Honestly he looks like a lift wearer. 5'7 for this little guy. I can't believe he would claim 5'10. Wow at least say 5'9 and people wouldn't even really care but 3 inches is too much to lie about.
viper said on 17/Jan/22
No taller than 5-7.25
Okidoki said on 14/Jan/22
Good actor, i liked his movie The Gambler! I don't agree with people who say he is 5'7.5, i just don't think he ever seems under 172 cm to me, proportion-wise also. Overall, from everything i've seen, i would say under 173 is likely. I would say he is about or almost 5'8, in the 172 and a half range seems most likely in my opinion.
Anish said on 1/Jan/22
To be true I all saw Mark to be of good height, when I was a kid I saw him in basketball diaries with Leonardo and thought he is all tall because I considered dicaprio to be super tall above 6 and then with Christian bale he never looked short and at that time I never calculated someones height I just used to see if they look tall or short
It was only when I see people saying he is only 5'7 I feel odd.
Javion said on 30/Dec/21
I believe mark wahlberg needs a downgrade to 5 ft 7 in a half, he looks barely taller than dj khaled here’s a video of them both Click Here
gaur said on 8/Dec/21
Rob, do you think people think he is shorter because of his posture and built.
Editor Rob
He is a bulky muscular guy, which in photos sometimes makes you seem shorter.
SnakePlissken said on 7/Dec/21
Got to say, I'm absolutely loving this website. Just scrolling through each celebrity I know is fascinating.

As for Mark Wahlberg, this is one me and my friends spend way too many hours studying on Whatsapp once, and we came to the conclusion he was around 5'7 and a half, I can't see him being anything over that. Once again the average guess makes me pleased, I wouldn't call them guesses at this point, I'd say the community knows ;)
gaur said on 6/Dec/21
Rob, could he be any less than 5'8.

if he is, I doubt it's by much

@Slim It's not question of height, also Jason momoa or Chris hesmwhorth or the rock or Jason staham or Hugh Jackman took steroids

@Arch Stanton

I reckon Sean Penn has a better chance of hitting 5'8 than markie mark.
Johno said on 28/Sep/21
I am not sure he is a lift wearer but he certainly does like big boots.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Sep/21
I think of Marky Mark and Sean Penn as the same sort of height, I think of them as strong 5 ft 7 ers, 5'8 flat possible.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Sep/21
205 pounds is 93 kg not 100 kg! 100 kg is 220! Mark claimed 212 pounds at his heaviest in Pain Click Here which is 96 kg.
Slim 6'1.5" said on 30/Aug/21
Yeah for pain and gain he was 100kg and lean
Space said on 29/Aug/21
@ Slim

There’s plenty of people who are 5’8” who carry whalbergs muscle mass without steroids. I do believe however that whalberg took steroids for pain n gain
Slim 6'1.5" said on 26/Aug/21
Mark has taken a truckload of steroids, no 5’7.5 guy can carry that much muscle naturally.

@kose09 more for your proportion, not all muscular type look short, depend on proportion and bone structure
Chinese and Russians weightlifter appear more slim despite your weight
Kose09 said on 4/Aug/21
171.8 almost 172, I really did think he was a little taller but if looking at him well on a par with other celebrities, he looks a little short, taking into account his proportions and that he is muscular

I think the departed is worth adding to his bio Rob. Did think he was a flat 5'8 in Ted but maybe camera angles were helping? In his other films he generally looks 5'7.5 or 5'7.75.

5'7 and a half to 3 quarters seems about reight.
AnthIris said on 13/Mar/21
He is about 170cm tall, I have always seen him as a max of 168-170cm.
And according to quite a few comments from people who have met him a lot say he is close to that, some even said he would be 5ft 5 (even less for a few others but that must be a joke) but I really don't think so.

I think short Hollywood actors do what I did in Highschool football I would put on the program for the other team to see I was 5'11" 190 lbs when I was actually 5'7" 160lbs. It was to psych out the opponent. If they say they're 5'8" most likely 5'6" to 5'7".tom cruise sky stallone mark wahlberg etc.

Lol, he hasn’t lost any height, and I highly doubt the average 50 year old has lost noticeable height let alone a full inch.

He always looks short to me or below average. I have trouble buying that he’s around same height as rob.

Weak 5’8” guy
Saluta Andonio said on 12/Feb/21
He might have lost 1 inch, he's almost 50 now.
But when he was young he def was a solid 5'8, and he never looked short to me, which shows you that a solid 5'8 is just on the lower end of average, and not short.
Magnus 6'4 said on 8/Feb/21
Possibly 5'8" out of bed in his twenties, but no way he's 5'8" now.

I will never believe over 5’7. He never pulls off looking average height on screen or pictures. A little less wouldn’t surprise me but I will stick with the full 5’7.
Jakey said on 31/Jan/21
172.2 cm for wahlberg bieber maybe Cople millimeters taller
Rising174cm said on 30/Jan/21
@Genau: I'd go with the following:

DiCaprio: 5'11"
Damon: 5'9.5"
Clooney: 5'10.5" peak, 5'10" current
Bale: 5'11.75"
Ledger: 6'0.5"
Gibson: 5'9" peak, maybe 5'8.75" current
Pitt: 5'10.75"
McConaughey: 5'10.5"
Wahlberg: 5'8"

Most of these are the most I'd guess them except for Ledger, whom I guessed at his minimum and DiCaprio and McConaughey could be 1/4" taller, particularly McConaughey who is basically a coin toss between 5'10.5" and 5'10.75", imo. Wahlberg looks short, but he could look roughly 5'8" in socks with Will Ferrell and I've seen him look solidly 5'8.5" with the aid of his Timberlands so I'd say he's an example of the 2" rule.

@ ChaosControl 6'2.5

Weak 5’8” range is 171.5-172cm, your cousin can claim 5’8” and technically not lie about it since his rounding up his change 👍
ChaosControl 6'2.5 said on 9/Jan/21
@Slim isn’t 5’7.75 more of a weak 5’8? I know my cousin is 5’7.5 and claims 5’8 (to be fair he was measured at 5’7.5 very late in the evening when I asked for an exact measurement)
slim 6'1 said on 8/Jan/21
@genau, really decent guesses except I’d give Damon 5’9.75”
And yeah Wahlberg is in that strong 5’7” range 👍
Genau said on 8/Jan/21
Rob how likely are the following heights for these guys:

DiCaprio 5ft11.5
Damon 5ft9.5
Clooney 5ft10 (5ft10.5 peak)
Bale 5ft11.75
Ledger 6ft0.63
Gibson 5ft9 (5ft9.5 peak)
Pitt 5ft10.75 (5ft11 peak)
McConaughey 5ft10.63
Wahlberg 5ft7.75
Rising174cm said on 6/Jan/21
Marky Mark with 6'0" Zakk Wylde: Click Here Mark does look over 4.5" shorter, perhaps near 5" since he may have the ground or tilt in his favor. Zakk's boots made him look more 6'1" when I met him a few years after this so he could be 6'0.25". You can see Zakk has boots there, but I can't tell if they're the logger boots he wears, but Mark's sneakers look pretty thick so the footwear difference may not be as great - likely a half inch at most. Certainly, the barefoot difference would not be less than 4".

I met Mark back in 1997, after boogie nights, I'm 5'7"-5'8" and he was shorter than me, by about an inch, so I'm guessing he is about 170cm, or a bit less.

I agree with the estimate weak 5’8”
Cesco said on 3/Jul/20
I also would like to point out that it is entirely pissible for Mark to look 5'10"... with 4.4 inch/11cm insoles which are available in Amazon. Nonetheless, height does not matter that much in Germany where I live in and the average man is 5'11" tall.
Cesco said on 3/Jul/20
My mother met him in an airport 20 years ago. She wore flat shoes. So did Mark. She told me that he was shorter than her. At least 2 inches. Her morning height is 5'7". That would make Mark 5'5", 5'6" max in the morning.

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Jun/20
@Editor Rob
standing on a higher part or lower part of a sidewalk probably is the main reason Glenn saw varying heights a lot.

Rob, what you mention also explain why someone claim to met Laurence Fisburne can estimate a 5'9-'5'10 ridiculous estimation also like someone insist Kevin Costner being 5'11 in real and Chris Noth at best 6'0. I think footwear and high/low standing ground play some part of tricks in the public.
Editor Rob
Also worth remembering if you are standing still and somebody is in motion, it can also throw off heights in some situations. It's why you might get somebody estimating 2-3 inches shorter...they may not be trolling or purposefully downgrading, it's just they remembered the celeb from a situation in which they did appear much shorter than normal.

Wishing the terrific actor Mark Wahlberg a very Happy 49th Birthday. I saw him in 'The Happening' recently. That has to be far and away my favourite of Mark's movies. Oh yes, and my boyfriend got me into his film 'Ted'!

5ft8. He didn't look below average when I saw him in 'The Happening', except when he was standing next to the gigantic Frank Collison, the nursery owner who knows all about plants and even talks to them! Frank stands 191cm tall.

But then again, I’ve seen some photos of Wahlberg struggling for 5’7, pretty strange.
cmillz said on 3/Jun/20
I don’t think he’d measure under 5’7, though. He would edge out Tom Cruise IMO.
Nik Ashton said on 1/Jun/20
It’s amazing that he claimed 5’10”, just like his brother Donnie who was telling the truth! 😂😂😂

Many onliners think he is 5’7” and plenty think he is 5’8” too, some people out there even think he is 5’3”!
Nik Ashton said on 1/Jun/20
I have seen his brother Paul listed as 5’2” online and I have also seen Paul listed as 5’6” too!

I think you could rule out 5ft 2 for Paul.

No way Wahlberg is 5-8.

Jaffer why are you downgrading heights like that. Tom cruise is 5ft 7 and marky is 5ft 8 both listings are accurate well Mark's is anyway tom might be listed here .75" to high
berta said on 8/May/20
mark always looks weak 173 guy
Jaffer said on 1/May/20
I've worked on movie sets s a gaffer for over 30 years starting as an apprentice with Born On The Fourth Of July in Dallas. Tom Cruise is at best 5'6". I also worked on Boogie Nights and had to light most of Mark's scenes and I know he is about the same height maybe 1/4 taller than Cruise. The thing is most actors wear weird custom shoes (with lifts for shorter guys) which can give them an additional 1.5 to 2.25 inches. So strong 5'6.5"

I've worked on movie sets s a gaffer for over 30 years starting as an apprentice with Born On The Fourth Of July in Dallas. Tom Cruise is at best 5'6".

Pictures of him in socks with Will Ferrell show him right where Rob has him listed — very weak 5’8”. Ferrell is 6’2.5” range by all accounts and Wahlberg came up past the tip of his nose in those shots meaning he is about 6-6.5” shorter. Wahlberg is obviously height conscious and a lift-wearer but these claims he’s 5’5” are as ridiculous as his claim of 5’10” (unless we want to question Ferrrell’s listing in which case all the dominos start falling).
viper said on 19/Apr/20
He is 5-7
OriginalAnon said on 16/Apr/20
I really think Wahlberg would be lucky to reach 5'7.5". He genuinely could be 5'7''. I think Rob is overestimating his height here. Maybe because Wahlberg's claim is so far from reality that it looks ludicrous to have him down anything below 5'8''.

Mark's 5'8" at best, he's probably 5'7.75" normally. His 5'10" claim is just absurd.
Man in Black said on 23/Feb/20
Saw him on Ant and Dec's saturday takeaway last night. He had *maybe* half an inch on Ant McPartlin when they were standing very close to each other. Looked same range. I'd estimate MaPartlin at 172cm

I've met him in NYC and he's more like 5 4' to 5 3" - he wears shoes with lifts. He's very short .

Needs a slight downgrade, he's a solid 5'7 and a half, 171.5cm.

Ok so he’s a bit of a height liar.... but how can you not love some mark Wahlberg??
Peter175 said on 27/Jan/20
He's clearly 5'8, he just has wonky proportions now a days. He looked taller back in the day because of the height illusion of being leaner and better dressing

I bet he doesn't claim 5ft 10 when his brother is around.
Peter175 said on 30/Dec/19
There is no way he actually thinks he's 5'10. He looks 5'8 but barely. He could easily be a weak 5'8
6james94 said on 27/Dec/19
Too me he looks like a genuine five eight guy. I think his five ten claim is a little wack, but I don't think it would be a big deal if he claimed five nine my dad has a friend who has a similar built to Mark Wahlberg and he claims five nine and growing up I thought that was what five nine looked like growing up. He's definitely not five seven though definitely not five ten. I don't think he's quite five nine because there was another guy who resembled my dads friend, and he's shorter then me so five eight would work or him.
Hung said on 23/Dec/19
alan smithee is more accurate than all of you.
he is small. probably wears lifts to events but he is probably about 5.5ish
saw him a few time and he is the height of a average girl (and no not trying to be mean)

Here is proof Wahlberg is about 5’5-5’7 (MAX):

He’s standing with the confirmed 6’5” Calvin Johnson “MegaTron”.

Johnson looks 10-12” taller than Wahlberg. My friend met him and said he’s tiny too.

There is no way he’s 5’8” and he’s definitely not 5’10” and never was.
KH said on 21/Aug/19
First of all Tom Cruise is a fraction under 5'8 not 5'7. Wahlberg is right around 5'8. I dont know why people want to slag on these handsome male leads that are a little on the short side. Newsflash the world doesnt care all that much. It is annoying Mark needs to lie about his heaight by 2 inches though that is sad.

same height as Tom Cruise in my opinion, nothing over 5’7.

This man is always looking 1-2 cm shorter than the cheater Joaquim Phoenix who is around 172 cm.

170 for walhberg.

Ian555 said on 11/Apr/19
Rob do you think Wahlberg knows he's not 5' 10" but claims it anyway because he's height conscious or do you think he thought he was 5' 10" at the time until he realized he might be shorter than that? I would have to agree with the people who say he looks taller on screen, but never looks as tall as 6' 2" in the movies I've seen him in.
Editor Rob
In timberland boots he might not be far off 5ft 10, so maybe he's a guy who thinks of himself as that height in big boots...

If it's 5ft 10 barefoot, then he should seek advice from his brother who also claims that height, but looks a bit taller than mark!

Mark was about 6-7 inches shorter than Will Ferrell in the Daddy’s Home movies, so this sounds about right. I think he’s 5’8” because if he was shorter, then all the celebrities shorter than him like Seth Green would need a severe downgrade. I’ll vote 5’8” for him.

Yes, you're going to see 5'8 or less more often than 6' and up. You will still see plenty of 6'0-6'4 males any night out in any big city. Over 6'5 gets rare and freaky.

@ Sandy Cowell - I have been on the website and they say that 4.3% of UK men are 5'4" or under! It must be fantastic to compare Mark Wahlberg with Mila Kunis, what do you think about the idea of watching him in "Mile 22" with Lauren Cohan and Ronda Rousey? Seeing him pictured with Rob would also be great!
Sandy Cowell said on 1/Nov/18
@ Nik - Would you happen to know how many UK men are 5ft4 and under? I'd love to know the percentage; I have only ever known one (properly!) and he was a smasher!

My favourite Mark Wahlberg film is 'The Happening', and from that film I deduced he is around 5ft8. I'm not selecting a height below that, even if it means going against the average vote. I'd like to see 'Ted' again one day as I saw it when I was very tired and nodded off! It would be an opportunity and a half to be able to compare him to Mila Kunis's 5ft4.
Nik said on 1/Nov/18

Great question. According to Medscape, 6'0 is at the ~80th percentile for men, meaning 20% of men are 6'0 or taller, and 5'8 is at the ~28th percentile for men, meaning 28% of men are 5'8 or shorter.

So, to answer your question straightforwardly, there are more men who are 5'8 or shorter than men who are 6'0 or taller.

Matt99 said on 13/Aug/18
On his Instagram story he still puts 5’10 on his scales, surely it’d skew his targets for weight loss/gain? And rob do you think he genuinely believes he’s 5’10?
Rising - 174 cm said on 12/Aug/18
Mark wears Timberlands or thick Nikes that add a good 1 3/8". He rarely looks over 5'8" without them so his 5'10" claim is a bad joke, but he has worn lifts in some movies and I believe he's done it occasionally for talk shows and premieres. I think Donnie is slightly under 5'10", but I doubt Mark looked taller without a camera advantage. Donnie likes tip-toeing for photos so maybe Mark gave him a taste of his own medicine?
Paul Wood said on 6/Aug/18
I think he wears lifts sometimes. I have seen several photos of him standing next to 5ft 10 in Donnie Wahlberg and Mark appears several inches taller! They are standing next to each other and both the same distance away from the camera.

Mark wears Timberland boots and Nike Airs quite often. Timberlands are the reason why he looks taller than James Corden in normal dress shoes. I(172cm afternoon/evening)was wearing Nike Airs and a friend of mine(179cm evening)slippers. He asked me whether I have grown taller and are we the same height. Good example how posture and shoes even up 7cm in height.

Rob is it possible he was 5ft8 1/8th in his 20s and has lost a tiny fraction due too years of heavy weight lifting?

I understand though shorter weight lifters will not lose as much height compared too there taller counterparts.

If he's lost anything it would be 1/8th or so, I can't really see him looking much different over last 15 years.

I can't see him any taller than 5'8" flat. A near 70 year old Jack Nicholson had an inch on him and Joaquin Phoenix looked to edge him. Mark has Timberlands with Corden, which likely add about 1 cm or so more than Corden's dress shoes. Sly and an aged James Caan also looked more than an inch taller than Mark in golf shoes.
Darius said on 31/Dec/17
172 cm. think a quarter inch downgrade is quite fair with Wahlberg as he look 172 range as opposed to 173 cm. I don't really think he is taller than Robert Downey Jr.
Also, TBH for some reason Marky Mark gives a 5'7" range impression to me like many said here than 5'8".
The Shredder said on 31/Dec/17
He has an easy 3 inches on 5'6 Hatton , He is always taller than 5'8.25 Jeremy Renner and taller than 5'8.25 ( minimum 5'8.5 in reality ) James Corden.

This guy is most definitely pulling off a strong 5'9 range with most likely 1.5 boots , which still would put him at a weak 5'9.

Even in lifts he wouldn't be as low as 5'7" , I'm going to say it now , is 5'8.5 really impossible for him?
Ajay said on 24/Dec/17
Rob, why does Mark look taller than James Corden here? Click Here
Editor Rob
maybe not standing quite as well as Mark, with less footwear.
Rising - 174 cm said on 17/Dec/17
I see Marky Mark more 172-173 cm as opposed to 173-174 cm. I can see an outside chance of Mel at 176 cm, but imo, he's always been more 175 and good posture + extra footwear in the 1.2"-1.7" range can make him look 177 cm. Mel looks to have at least 1/4" more footwear to me. Mark was also noticeably shorter than another 175-176 cm guy Kurt Russell recently. A near 70 year old Jack Nicholson also looked at least an inch taller than Wahlberg during the Departed days. I believe Jack was more 5'8.5" than 5'9" by that point so I don't think just below 5'8" can be ruled out.

Mel and admitted 5'8" Joaquin Phoenix in 2002 with both in dress shoes: Click Here Can we really say Mark looks as tall as Joaquin did with Mel? Then if you look up Joaquin and Mark, they look close, but Joaquin seems to edge Mark out similar to how Mark edges Jeremy Piven. But Marky Mark looks taller with Mel than Jeremy Renner did here: Click Here Mel pulls off more 5'11" there! He did have his cowboy boots and who knows what inside and Renner is slouching, but still, Mel is looking pretty "Sly" there. ;)
u\Kwq said on 13/Dec/17
He was actually 5ft 8.25-8.5 back in the Marky Mark days. I used to like his music and what I also know is that he was a big fan of fitness and did lots of weight lifting, and he still does but not as hard as I imagine these days. Most guys this age that have done lots of weightlifting and working out usually have shrunk .5-1 inch. He is like a weak 5ft 8 now, possibly 5ft 7.75
Chase said on 3/Dec/17
Rob, you peg Mel at around 5'9 today and you say that's a 1.5 inch difference, so why is 5'7.5 or even 5'7.75 not a more proper listing? You see him taller than Robert Downey Jr. and the same height as you? I think you give off a taller impression
Editor Rob
mel could still be 5ft 9.25, wahlberg close to 5ft 8

Rising - 174 cm said on 21/Nov/17
@The Shredder: Maybe. As you know, I peg Mel at 5'9" flat peak, but I think his range has always been within a 1/4" of 5'9" in either direction. If anything, seeing Mel with Marky Mark suggests to me he hasn't lost much because even accounting for footwear, admitted 5'8" Joaquin Phoenix looked closer to Mel's height 15 years ago than Wahlberg does now. Even Downey in Air America didn't look much different than Mark and Mel today -- I saw roughly a 3 cm difference between Mel and Robert walking side by side on the runway -- but with Garfield, Mel in 1.4"-1.5" type heels was really an inch minimum shorter than Andrew in 0.7"-0.8" type sneakers.

I'd agree Mel may have gone from say 5'9" flat to 5'8.75", but he almost always pulls off taller than say 5'8.5" so 5'8.75" would be the low end. Mel does take HGH and I'd guess at least Testosterone as well based on how much bigger his arms have gotten and still holds good posture so I wouldn't expect much height loss. I think Mark may be one of those 172 cm guys, though. Kurt Russell is still noticeably taller in his mid 60's and Joaquin Phoenix seems more a legit 5'8" to me.

@Christian: They always do that, especially guys who add 2". Johnny Depp, Wesley Snipes and Kirk Douglas struggled to reach 5'9" yet all claimed to be "only" 5'11". Ving Rhames is barely taller than Adam Sandler and claimed "only" 6 feet.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 21/Nov/17
Funny how he says "only 5'10"", as if 5'10" is somehow a short or inadequate height, lol.
The Shredder said on 21/Nov/17
Mel has to be more 5'8.75 or so at best now , He looks barely 5'9 with Andrew and has more footwear.
Rising - 174 cm said on 20/Nov/17
Yeah, I definitely don't see 2". Mel looks somewhere in that inch to 3 cm range taller in the photo, but 1.5" sounds about right when you consider Mark is closer and based on other photos where Mark isn't any closer, I don't see less than 1.5". However, Mel has those heeled boots he's worn a lot the past few years. Here's a side view of what I believe are the same type of boot: Click Here and here's another shot: Click Here I think a bit smaller than say a cowboy boot -- which Mel use to wear all the time -- and more like a Chelsea style boot. They probably add a similar amount to what Pitt often wears. Marky Mark has dress shoes on the other hand so I'd think a disadvantage there as his look 1" max to me. I think Mel has always been about 5'9", but Wahlberg is more of a 5'8" at best guy, imo.

Rob, why does he look a full 2 inches shorter than Mel Gibson? Mel isn't even a proper 5'10, and I thought you said he could have shrunk to 5'9 range today. So either Mel is around 5'10 even today, or Marky Mark is 5'7ish
Editor Rob
I wouldn't say that was 2 inches, but I think it is near 1.5 with Mel.
