I saw Martin for the second time in 'The Strangers Prey at Night' yesterday and he really does look 2" taller than 5ft7 Christina Hendricks, but he could have been wearing lifts for the hugging scene. It could be his proportions that make him appear taller than one would expect for 5ft8.5. In fact, I think I will settle for 5ft8.5, just in case he was wearing chunky footwear!

He's hot though, regardless of his height

Pretty much what I guessed seeing him with Franco in Flyboys.

Also, he is taller than Anthony Hayes, who is listed at 5'9. Either he needs an upgrade, or they're both lying.

He looks at least 5'10/5'11 on Secrets and Lies. Maybe it's the shoes.

Wow, I'm really surprised by this, honestly thought he'd be taller. By looking at him by himself I would think 5'10/11 easily.

If his resume gives him 5'9. Then it is DEFINITE that he is 5'9 or less. tila, you are an idiot.

Random Girl...tell me more about martin. I agree - he is effing gorgeous. Never seen anyone sexier- ever. Lucky babe to be standing infront of him making eye contact.

I see him as 175cm, not quite 5ft9

Hey, he's definitely 5'8. I chatting with him and a costar at an event earlier this year. He looked me right in the eyes and we were just about eye level. He had MAYBE an inch on me if anything at all. I'm 5'5 and was wearing heels which made me about 5'7. But I will say that in his case height is secondary because the man is effing gorgeous in person. His eyes are insanely green and piercing and his smile just makes you melt and I'm not a girl who typically swoons. He is a stunning specimen in person I assure you. Height be darned, the man is gorgeous. Bit of a player though, lol.

I have one query in my mind. Jackie Chan is also listed at 5 ft 8.5 inches. But, Martin Henderson looks quite tall as compared to Jackie Chan. Why is it so? Is it due to camera angles or something? And do you agree with me on this?
brazilian guy said on 6/Oct/06
i don´t get it
he has exactaly the same heigh as ice cube in torque, i can´t see any diference between then, where´s this 1 cm plus? clear to me hehehe

He says he's 5'9"...but I know people who have met him (during his stint as "Eddie" in Fool For Love at the Apollo on London's West End) that put him at no taller than 5'8."

From Independent Newspaper:
A common misperception of me is:
"That I'm taller than I really am. I'm 5 foot 9."

Answer fernie's question about Martin been gay. I'm sure he is bi-sexual I went to school with him in New Zealand in the later 80s early 90s and once at a party he was caught with a another guy making out in a wardrode of all places maybe this inspired brokeback in the first place?? I would say the height listed here is correct maybe 5'9 as I towered over him at 6'3.5 :)
fernie said on 4/Mar/06
is martin henderson gay, does anyone know if he has even had a gay experience. The reason being, we have an oportunity for an indian brokenback mountain which we thought he might be interested in. Please respond promptly if anyone has any information. Thank you

he is short cause when he played in Bride and Prejudice he was just a bit taller than Aishwarya Rai and she's 5'7 so not much taller.
M.Jorgensen said on 16/Jan/06
He looks 5'10/11 in that Bollywood movie though...
Reality said on 20/Oct/05
Wow, this guy is SHORT. I always had him at 6' even.
