Many guys of his height would claim to be 6’0”!

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

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. 😁🎉

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.

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.

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!

Doesn't look much shorter than David Tennant

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.

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

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.
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.
said on 19/Dec/13
With 5'8.75" Simon Pegg:
Vecrotus said on 5/Oct/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.

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.
MaskDeMasque said on 12/Feb/13
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
Eli said on 27/Aug/11
mr sheen is rocking the lifts
Tom said on 20/Nov/10
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...
Marcus said on 19/Jun/06
I can't believe this...imdb has Michael 5'9'' at the moment!
Marcus said on 30/Apr/06
Now we're talking...By the way, I wonder how tall is Shane Brolly (Kraven in Underworld), 'cause he looks like a tall guy (maybe 6'1'' - 6'2'') for me...? The IMDB has him 1.85cm, so it might be quite correct...I don't know, you tell me!
[Editor Rob: yes, 185cm is a good guess for brolly]
said on 30/Apr/06
Come on Rob...No way he's over 5'11, probably between 5'9 and 5'10...He's a medium guy, not tall at all![Editor Rob: ah, thanks for reminding me about this geezer, yes not tall, downgraded for certain...he looks similar height as Tom Hardy and and again with Hardy
I met Hardy in 2005, he is near enough 180cm, the height he claims...unfortunately I never got a pic with him, but here Is a crappy pic I took of him.
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.
QuinnAbercromby said on 26/Jan/06
I think.. he is not more than 5,7! Look at the picture!
And compare the heights! :) But maybe I am wrong!
