Whenever anyone asks me how tall I am I always want to say six feet but I'm not I'm five feet 10 1/2.
My mother is four feet 11 1/2, and my father is five feet 10.
My mother is so small that I was taller than her when I was 10 years old.

His 5'10.5 claim he could have been measured at in shoes.
Editor Rob
Last thing I watched him in was Good Omens s2 and he generally had solid posture in it. At one point he was doing scenes with Derek Jacobi and seemed near 2 inches taller than him.

That up and coming series on Pick TV looks extremely disturbing.

He’s a top performer, great characterisations. His Brian Clough was something to behold.
More 5’9” I’d say.

I have had a full blown conversation with him, been on ITV Wales news with him and had a photo by the side of him. I am, or was at a younger age 5ft 11. (Ten years ago) He is not that much shorter than me. He was very respectful and a very nice gentleman.

Sheen barely looks taller than Hardy there. I can't see any more than 5'9.5 for him.

Rob how about 5' 9 3/4" for Sheen? I can't see him being any taller than 5' 10", but no shorter than 5' 9 1/2" based on how he looks with 6' 1 3/4" Chris Pratt Click Here, Click Here, Click Here. With Simon Pegg, around an inch taller looks plausible Click Here. With Tom Hardy, he looks around 0.75" or 0.5" taller Click Here, Click Here and with David Tennant, he looks around 3 inches shorter Click Here, Click Here.

9.75 is a figure he could measure
Nik Ashton said on 29/Jun/20
Many guys of his height would claim to be 6’0”!
BT said on 21/May/20
He has a surprisingly stocky build and his head also appears quite large with all the hair and beard he's sporting, so I could understand how he gives more of a 5'9 impression.

Looking a little shorter than Cranston here Click Here (who I think could still be a more solid 178 cm). With Hamm and Tennant I'd say around 177 cm looks likely as well Click Here, Click Here.

5'10 seems like an honest enough claim, but it's the most he could be. My best guess is 5'9.75.

🎁🎂🎈 Happy Birthday Michael! 🎈🎂🎁

Michael Sheen is today turning 51, so he's been 17 three times! Let's hope he celebrates his special day to the full!

5ft10 is my Birthday guess for him. 😁🎉

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Dec/19
There's nothing wrong with 5ft10, Michael! Why do so many regard 6ft as the Holy Grail of Height?

A genuine 5ft10 is quite tall! 😁

Nope, he does looks much shorter than David Tennant.
Sardik Kaddy said on 26/Aug/19
No way he's 5'10. Noticeably shorter than Owen Wilson in Midnight in Paris. Owen's half an inch over 5'10 would not give such a bump. I think he's 5'9, 5'9.5 max.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/Jun/19
I just saw the Welsh actor on form in a Celebrity edition of The Chase. He was noticeably taller than Bradley's 5ft8.5, but not by heaps so, yes, I can see 5ft10 for Michael.

He got through to the final with two other Celebs, but they didn't end up beating Beastie Boy. Each Celeb won £1,000 - which is better than a kick in the 🌰🌰's!
John Davies said on 2/Jun/19
Doesn't look much shorter than David Tennant
MaskDeMasque said on 6/May/19
176-177cm range. Def under 5'10.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Nov/18
Maybe 176.5-177cm range.
Animus said on 5/Nov/17
He looks at least an inch shorter than Owen Wilson Wilson listed on this site at 5'10½. I think Wilson is a little closer to 5'11 than his listing suggests and Sheen might fall a bit short of a legitimate 5'10.

I'd say Michael Sheen is 5'9½ or 5'9¾.
Flyin said on 21/Apr/17
177cm so as close to 5'10 as I am to 5'11
Sam said on 11/Mar/17
Why does he play Blair when he is 2 inches shorter?
Rent said on 26/Oct/16
In every photos with Owen Wilson, he looks 3-4cm shorter than him, whatever the angles.
TJE said on 15/Aug/16
He barely edges out Lizzy Caplan in a small heel. 5'9
Gaspergoo said on 29/Jun/16
probably right around 5'10".......doesn't come across as short like Tom Cruise or Pacino
AJ said on 22/Jun/16
Weak 5'10"
musket said on 25/May/16
He is listed as 175cm on google he is 174cm.
N said on 24/Oct/15
Seen him in HMV on Oxford street, London. He's 5'9.5" I'd guess, being 5'10" myself wearing similar flat Vans style trainers.
Axaros said on 18/Aug/15
Rob are you sure he's not 5'9''? Could I know why you estimate him as 5'10''?
Editor Rob
he can look anywhere in 5ft 9-10 range
Lorne??? said on 24/May/15
He gives off a 176-7 impression...
Empire said on 13/Oct/14
He looks 175cm next to 163cm Lizzy Caplan in Masters of Sex. And he also always looked a bit shorter than 178cm Caitlin Fitzgerald who's always wearing flats on the show.
Empire said on 13/Oct/14
He looks more like 175cm next to 163cm Lizzy Caplan in Masters of Sex.
Chris said on 20/Jul/14
He has a small head and no chin, so he should be shorter
AJ said on 16/May/14
Agree with everyone else, the 5'9.5" listing you had him at a few years back was more accurate.
MD said on 19/Dec/13

I always thought Sheen was more like 175-177cm. Never really saw as being 178cm. I don't know, he gives off a very meek appearance. He looks average.
Scott five eleven said on 7/Sep/13
Have met him here in Wales. He wasn't much shorter than me (5'11) but he had loafer style shoes on whereas I had flat trainers. He's 5'9.75 barefeet I'd say.

Just watched Beautiful Boy, thought he looked 5'9ish, 176-177cm i think. Prob isn't 5'10.
logan noll 1996 said on 7/Oct/12
He looked 5'10 next to Bill Nighy in Underworld:Awakening.
Felipe said on 13/Sep/12
In Midnight in Paris, next to 5'10.5 Owen Wilson, he looks 5'9, maybe under...
Actor said on 19/Oct/11
I went to drama school with him -- he's 5 9 or 10. No taller

I met him tonight and either he's wearing lifts or he's 6 foot. Stood eye-to-eye with me and in the film Tron he's as tall as Jeff Bridges.
Chris said on 19/Nov/10
@ Harvey, short legs has nothing to do with height, I know a guy with 30" legs, he's 5'10, I have 32" and I'm 5'8, different people have different proportions.

I just saw him in Twilight: New Moon, they say Robert Pattinson is 6'1, but Billy Burke is 6'1 and he's taller, downgrade rob to 6' this guy had bigger shoes than Rob and looked a tad shorter, so maybe 5'11 with these on, considering they looked like lifts, I'd say he's around spot on here ;) 5'9.5 sounds perfect!
flash_of_eden said on 26/May/09
5'9" I would say. He is considerably shorter than 6'2" Frank Langella in Frost/Nixon, and Langella even had to stoop considerably in conveying Nixon's trademark slouch.
Steven said on 10/May/09
No more than 5-8.
Random Person said on 25/Mar/09
5'8'59 ranges I'd say.
DDFAN said on 22/Mar/09
on his recent appearance on 'friday night with jonathan ross' he seemed to be around 2-2.5 inches shorter than 6'1.5'' ross.
JIMMY CHASE said on 16/Mar/09
He simply has to be shorter than 5 ft 10. Rebecca Hall was easily 2 inches taller in most of the scenes. He seems to have a frame befitting of a smaller guy also. She's listed as 5 ft 9. My guess is that he is in the 5 ft 8 - 9 range.
Zach #2 said on 9/Feb/09
5ft 10" is too generous for Sheen, I recently saw him and Jason Isaacs at The BAFTAS backstage show in London, where they both came and talked to an audience of film lovers. I was only a few yards away from them both and Michael Sheen looked 5 9" Max (I was actually suprised he werent taller) and Jason Isaac cleared him by a good 2 inches. so 5 11" seems bang on for Isaacs
Mr. R. said on 3/Feb/09
After seeing Frost/Nixon, I came back home to figure out Michael Sheen. He looks to be similar in height to Sam Rockwell who seems about 5-8. From this and other pics i found, I think that Sheen is between 5-8 and 5-9.
September said on 1/Feb/09
I don't know what it is- maybe it's just his frame size, but I seriously had him pegged as 5'6.5" to 5'7". He just seems small to me.
Chris said on 24/Jan/09
Haven't seen the film, but in the poster he looks the same height as Rebecca Hall, so 5'9" ish.
bogart_heels said on 10/Dec/08
mmmmmmmm. get the feeling that the activity on this page might pick up thanks to frost/nixon. be interested to hear about any sightings - he looks a good inch or 2 shorter than 5'10 in that film.
werewolf said on 19/Nov/08
wow he isn't a big guy, well im surprised that nobody in this forum had commented .
Underworld said on 13/Feb/07
Apart from Underworld, he looks taller in his other roles...I had guessed 5'10'' for him a long time ago.

I was surprised when I saw him listed as 6'1''a long time ago...
old friend said on 11/Apr/06
I used to know him - he's around 5,9 but he appears taller because he's so slim and athletic. He's definitely not a six footer - his parents are both short.
