He's taller than 6'2" at least 6'4"
SolidSnake said on 29/Apr/13
Has he really not lost height yet? Almost 76yo without a peak height listing, is he the oldest living person on the site with this distinction Rob?
Dmeyer said on 28/Apr/13
Rob i insist morgan was over 6 ft 2 peak as he looked 1cm taller than ben aflleck and 8cm taller than 183cm Bâle and That at 70s also aleast 9cm on Pitt , now hé might 6'1.75-6'2 but peak 6'2.5
Lenad said on 26/Apr/13
looks at most 3 inches shorter than tim robbins and I think 2.5 is more like it. still 6'2ish
Daniele said on 20/Apr/13
He looks the same of Quentin Tarantino. Here he is with Kobe (Click Here). Assuming Kobe is 6'4.75, and considering that Morgan Freeman barely reaches Kobe eyelevel (notice that Kobe isn't perfectly straight in this photo), I'd say he's 185cm at the best hypotesis. According to me 6'2 is way too generous. Maybe it's the photo, I dunno...

taller than 6'2"+ RG3 in recent pics
Lenad said on 12/Apr/13
Probably not over 6'2 anymore
Balrog said on 10/Apr/13
6'2.25'' peak height
Now 6'1.5''
space balls said on 8/Apr/13
the guy still looks 6'2'' in his mid-seventies! so therefore his peak height could very well be close to 6'3'' or a full 6'3''

peak 190 cm . Now 188 cm

I agree

0.5 in taller than 6'2.5 Affleck 3 in taller than 6 ft bale this Guy looks 188-189cm at 70 plus do nô less than 6'1.75-2in today and aleast 189cm peak
--------------
That's because Ben Affleck is more like 6'2 flats, Bale is indeed 6'0", IMO Freeman was 190cm tall peak and 188cm tall nowadays.
Lorne! said on 7/Apr/13
6ft2.25 peak , around 189 cm. still looked 6ft2 in his 60's, no way he didn't lose height! Around 189cm at peak, bet on it
Vecrotus said on 11/Feb/13
I always thought he looked 6 ft 3. 6 ft 2 sounds right as well. By the way is 5 ft 8 tall or short in england.
Connor 183cm said on 6/Jan/13
Morgan freeman is still 6ft 2 he doesnt look like hes lost height at all christian bale looks 6ft as he claims could drop to 5ft 11.75 in the evening. Why i think people believe christian is shorter than micheal caine who is 6ft 1 is because maybe he wears high platform shoes that make him look taller perhaps that can fool a lot of people what do you think rob?
James said on 26/Dec/12
Looked 187cm j dark knight rises

188cm-189cm in batman begins
The Exorcist said on 12/Dec/12
No less than 6'2".
Arch Stanton said on 4/Dec/12
Peak yeah 6'2.5" I think looks right. 4 inches taller than Brad Pitt in Se7en.
James said on 19/Nov/12
Well demyer next 6'2.5-6'3 Clint Eastwood in the 90s and 6'4 liam neeson he looked very close too 6'3.

I guess his hair can make him look taller though..... That and neesons posture makes him look 6'3
Dmeyer said on 12/Nov/12

Aragorn 5'11 said on 19/Oct/12
Morgan Freeman is 6'2 and nothing more. He has a good 2 inches on Christisn Bale (6'0) and about an inch on legit 6'1 Jim Carrey.
James said on 10/Oct/12
Doubt this guy was shorter than 189cm peak.
Larc-186.7-188.6cm said on 9/Oct/12
Is 186-187 possible for him today, Rob? I saw The Dark Knight Rises, and he looked 3-4cm over 183 Bale.
Ajax said on 28/Sep/12
All though he did say 6'2", I think he could have been 6'2.5" when he was younger since sometimes when people are a height plus a half inch, they downplay the half inch.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/12
Still looks 6ft2 in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight with Christian Bale. Haven't seen The Dark Knight Rises yet. In 2012 it wouldn't be suprising of he's maybe 187cm. But I wouldn't go lower than that.

6ft2.5(189cm) peak, 6ft1.75(187cm)
zero said on 10/Sep/12
Bale is 6'0'' or close to it and almost same height that Michael Caine who is looking under 6'1'' these days.

Rob why haven't you added peak height for Freeman. He's 75 and he was a legit 6'2'' maybe more at his peak but right now looks under 6'2''.

Also some people must remember that in The Dark Knight Rises Bale was wearing a cane in some scenes next to Freeman.
Justin said on 30/Aug/12
In The Dark Knight Rises, Christian Bale and Michael Caine, who are both said to be 6'2" were the same height. Freeman was noticeably taller than both of them. He looked 6'4 in that film.
FACE said on 18/Aug/12
6'2.5 Peak
6'1 Now
Fakhrul Islam said on 2/Aug/12
hollywood and all other film industries add 2 to 2 1/2 inches off height to all actors and actresses.
Rick said on 23/Jul/12
In recent photos during 'rises' red carpet events, he looks to be shorter than 6'2" jonathan nolan (chris nolan's younger brother. Morgan seems to be a strong 6'1" these days. 186cm also sounds right.
SIlent d said on 25/Jan/12
I doubt he's 6 foot now. 187cm.
steven said on 16/Jan/12
no matter how tall at peak. freeman is 6'0 nowadays.
supes78 said on 12/Jan/12
Freeman maybe 6ft 2 now but in his prime, I'd say he was 6ft. 2.5in easy. If you've seen his early film work, he was very tall looking.
steven said on 11/Jan/12
peak freeman look every bite tallish 6'1-6'2. nowadays he look as short as 5'11.5 to 6'0 max.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 6/Jan/12
Pitt is a weak 5" 11, Freeman was likely a strong 6" 2 at peak, perhaps 189 cm. I think Freeman has lost 2 cm at 74 though and now stands 6" 1.5 (1.87 m).
maio said on 6/Jan/12
I'm sure he was a little over six-feet-two...I think 6 ft 2.25 in/189 cm during his youth.
Today i think he's in the 186-187 cm range...that's my guess, however 6 ft 1.5 in/187 it's my choice!
Shaun said on 28/Dec/11
I think he had about 4 inches on Brad Pitt in Seven...
Shaun said on 28/Dec/11
Freeman in his 20s in my opinion was somewhere near 190, surely at least 6'2.5". I think he hovering just under 6'2" today but still close to it.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 16/Dec/11
Silent d says on 15/Dec/11
187cm. "Probably one of the greatest actors ever."

Can't argue there.

Brotha said on 10/Dec/11
Morgan is NOT under 6'2.5, 6'2" maybe but that is the MINIMUM. These 6'1 under listings are crazzzy.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 24/Nov/11
6ft 1.5 now, 6ft 2.25 peak.
franklinaliasTHEDOCTOR said on 20/Nov/11
peak 6'2. today 6'1.25
LAN JIAO said on 18/Nov/11
i think morgan is 185-186cm stand straight up now and 6'0 stand alone with hunch. peak 6'2 he does't lost much height at 70plus of age now.
Silent d said on 11/Nov/11
He is an anomily. He is still freakishly tall. Jordan always looked short to me compared to other basketball players. He only looked 6 foot in the eighties. He probably grew a lot since then. They wear basketball shoes which gives them nearly two inch advantage. At least morgan freeman should be 187cm. Lan jiao no way he is 6'0.75. He is taller than craig ferguson and much taller than christian bale who i think is 182cm. If he has lost height. How tall was he in his prime? I heard that when you reach your seventies, you lose close to two inches. I want what he is having. He is ageless. 188cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/11
He's a hard guy to pin down. Can look anywhere from 6ft1 to 6ft3
LAN Jiao said on 2/Nov/11
DeJAVU, I never implied freeman 6'0 or lower. he can be at least 6'0.5 stand straight or taller he is 6'0.75 now i believe , but not a chance his over 185cm because next to both 194-195cm kobe and michael jordan he look a full 4in shorter. he lost a tad bit of posture nowadays and could easily look only 6'0 or under in picture don tell me you think his still 6'2 easily? impossible. unless kobe and jordan are really 6'6 i can shut..
Silent D said on 25/Oct/11
Never doubted it. He is six foot two. Craig ferguson is not 188cm as he claims. He's shorter than 188cm david letterman. Morgan freeman is an awesome actor and a freak of nature. He is still really tall today as he was 30 years ago. Clint eastwood and david letterman really age well height wise.
DejaVu said on 18/Oct/11
Freeman at 6'0 or under. I don't know what you are smoking LAN Jiao.
truthman said on 17/Oct/11
Really?
He looks even taller than 6'2 with decent posture and camera advantage

LAN Jiao said on 15/Oct/11
If freeman is 6'2 i did see 6'6.5 for kobe bryant.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 11/Oct/11
Omg, 6ft3 at peak james would make tim robbins at least a solid 6ft6! Stop upgrading everyone, please!
jake, 1.82 m said on 29/Sep/11
Ferguson might be 186 cm. Freeman is 187 cm today.
the shredder said on 26/Sep/11
Sure he is 6'3 , thats why he says 6'2 and looks 6'1.5 lol .
James said on 25/Sep/11
not sure about 6'3 (191cm) peak?
Larc 6 ft 1.75 in said on 25/Sep/11
Strangely 2 years ago, he still looked taller than Craig Ferguson (listed at 6'1.5) on his Late Show, maybe Ferguson is just 6'1.

188-189 peak
187 now
LAN Jiao said on 22/Sep/11
at peak he does look 6ft2. but i think he is 6ft1 today, can look under 6ft without straight posture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Sep/11
6"3(191cm) at his peak.
jake, 1.82 m said on 17/Sep/11
6ft2-2.5in peak, 6ft1.75 now. He doesn't look as if he's lost much height.
James said on 12/Sep/11
i think theres a very good chance he was a shade over 6'2 in his 20's.
lan jiao said on 7/Sep/11
what i knew i saw few picture 6ft4.75 kobe bryant with freeman looks 4inch under kobe. maybe 6ft1 flat today. 6ft1.75-2 prime days?
James said on 6/Sep/11
he didn't look under 6'2 next too tim robbins recently.
the shredder said on 31/Aug/11
Rob , do you think 6'1.5 is possible ? He looked same height or a hair taller then 6'1 Costner in Robin Hood .
[Editor Rob: today he might be dipping under 6ft 2, but I think 90's he always looked 6ft 2]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 27/Aug/11
187 now, strong 188 at peak! no more!
the shredder said on 21/Aug/11
Rob , what would you guess his weight as ?
[Editor Rob: maybe around 170ish]

In Shawshank Redemption

Morgan Freeman 6'2-6'2.5
Tim Robbins 6'4.75-6'5

More like 3-4" between them in Shawshank Redemption.

Larc 6 ft 1.75 in says on 13/Aug/11
He still looks at least 187cm even today at 74y, he was for sure 189cm at his peak, don't know how but black people seems to lose less height with age.

The average man by 80 lose 2" in height. He's 100% lost height seeing he is in his mid 70's. 6'2" today and 6'3.5-6'4" peak.

Nick said on 12/Aug/11
i think it's dafe to say he lost some height since he is 74 years old, but still a good 6 foot 2. probably 6 foot 3 when he was younger
Sam said on 10/Aug/11
Will, was Freeman's dwarf twin nice? I've seen Freeman in person and you saw somebody else.
Will said on 9/Aug/11
I happened to meet Freeman in 2005, I was 14 at the time and stood at 6'4 and Freeman was a good foot and a half shorter than I was so I would put his height at about 5'1
James said on 1/Aug/11
had 4.5 on 5'10 brad pitt in the 90's
thebad7 said on 1/Aug/11
My favorite role of his is Eddie "Scrap Iron" Dupris from MILLION DOLLAR BABY. I'm very glad he's been working with another legend in Clint Eastwood. As a young man, I think Freeman was an easy 6'3"--or 6'2 1/2" at the bare minimum. Today, I think he still hits 6'2" for most of the day. I saw him recently in pictures taken alongside Eastwood and Poitier. Poitier and Freeman both look about 6'2", and Eastwood looks about 6'1". Today, I think Freeman is 6'2".

Sam said on 28/Jul/11
I did see him in person in 90s and he did look pretty tall. Had impeccable posture and sidewalk advantage that gave him a 6'3"ish impression but he probably was a strong 6'2".
James said on 27/Jul/11
was shorter than clint eastwood in Unforgiven who was 6'3 or 6'3.5 at the time of that film.

maybe somewhere between 6'2-6'3 in his 20's and 30's?
James said on 25/Jul/11
6'2 (188cm) today
6'2.75 (190cm) peak
Sam said on 19/Jul/11
Rob, do you think he could have been over 6'2" at his peak? I suspect at one time he may have brushed 6'3" in the morning.
[Editor Rob: it's possible he was 6ft 2.5 range yes, maybe he had been measured about 6ft 2 when he said his claim and hasn't lost that much height.]
Mario said on 18/Jul/11
Could he have been 6 ft 3 when he was younger, and that the 6ft2 of 2008 was his current height at that time? Tim Robbin himself said he was about 6 ft 3.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 29/Jun/11
ok! he's 6ft2! but SERIOUSLY talking, in invictus where do you see ten cms difference between him and matt damon(admitting that damon is really 178 because in my opinion he could easily be 175)! in that movie, freeman is max 6 cms taller than him and also in photos of both! that would make morgan freeman max 6ft! which is the actual height he looked in comparison with 194 tim robbins (i mean in the shawshank redemption)... bah
James said on 27/Jun/11
Morgan Freeman is no less than 188cm today cause he was only 2.5 or so inches shorter than tim robbins recently.
Dmeyer said on 23/Jun/11
Thén affleck is 187 188 Max and many néed a downgrate like Willis Bí¢le neeson
Dmeyer said on 22/Jun/11
Rob look at getty images freeman apears 1-2 cm taller than 189cm Affleck when afleck stand as tall as possible hí¯¿½ looks about as tall as freeman ewplain me how CAN Morgan be only 188 cm Even if affleck is only 188-85 Morgan steel looks 189cm i met Clint 7 years ago hí¯¿½ was still about 6 ft 1 Morgan looks 2 un over him un million dollar baby , 190 peak 189 for last 20 years and 6 ft 2 now hí¯¿½ looks 3 in or over taller than Willis
[Editor Rob: I think Morgan is honest when he says 6ft 2]
Dmeyer said on 16/Jun/11
Looks easy as tall as ben affleck and 3 in over 6 ft Bí¢le this Guy was ní´ less than 189 cm now hé might just 6 ft 2 now hé steel towers 5 ft 11 Willis peak was défenetly 189 or 190 Rob remember hé made Brad look small
dmeyer said on 12/Jun/11
rob in most pics he looks as tall as liam neeson who i met and he now 6 ft 3.5 , in most movies apear weak 6 ft 3 , i think 190cm peak 189 15 years ago 187 188 now
James said on 11/Jun/11
Bale looks more 5'11ish too me.

I agree though in the batman films he looks a legit 6'2. Probably close too 6'3 in his 20's.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/11
Not over 6ft2 today...but at peak he was for sure on his way to the 6ft3 mark.

I think 190cm peak or bare minimum 189cm
rafa said on 14/May/11
A bit over 6'2" peak , like 6'2.3" or 6'2.4". I think he looks about 6'1.5" these days. Whats your opnion Rob?
Andrea [ITA] said on 7/May/11
In shawshank redemption he looks minimum 8-9 cms shorter than tim robbins... So if robbins was 195 in that movie, he was no more than 186-187 at that time!
Robert said on 6/May/11
he looked noticeably taller than around 1,83 Christian Bale... he was definetely 1,90 in his prime, gotta be 1,88-1,89 now. Liam Neeson looked an inch taller and he is 1,93
Lenad said on 24/Apr/11
6 ft 1.75 in today
6 ft 2.5 in peak
dmeyer said on 7/Apr/11
1 in taller than carrey aleast as tall as affleck 3 in taller than 6 ft bale this guy is aleast 189cm and might be 6 ft 2 now
James said on 4/Apr/11
Yeah Freemans tall but he still looked shorter than robbins.

Today 187cm is a possibibility
Toby said on 4/Apr/11
No wonder Robbins didnt look like a giant in Shawshank, freeman is pretty tall himself
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/11
6ft2.75(190cm) prime
6ft2(188cm) today

Still a legitimately tall man
James said on 22/Mar/11
With robbins looks 4 inches shorter like 184cm. In the Shawshank Redemption as well he looked not over 6'2 with robbins. With Carrey looks nothing over 188cm.
Klaus said on 3/Mar/11
He certainly was 1,90 or 6'3 peak when young because in the movie Bruce Almighty he is 66 years-old and is bigger than 1,87/1,88 Jim Carrey. Today, at age 74 Morgan is a strong 6'2.

Gus said on 2/Mar/11
At his peak,before any of us fisrt saw him say in the 60s-would have been 191cm out of bed,189cm at night...in the 90s 190cm>188cm at night...these days 187cm in the morning>185cm at night.
James said on 15/Feb/11
Andrea your forgetting that in the recent pic freeman is 187 or 188cm at best so that is what 6'1.75 looks next to a 6'4.5 guy since robbins is probably still around 194cm.

In the Shawshank Reeeman was around 189cm and robbins a solid 194cm.

i give him a peak 6'2''.75 maybe 6'3'' he towered the 6 footer Christian Bale in The Dark Knight
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
A 2/2.5" difference is not towering, that is ridiculous. He is just noticerably taller, towering is when some1 is 5 inches taller than u.

Andrea [ITA] said on 17/Jan/11
I don't want to say hes not around 188, but in comparison with robbins he looks so short and i don't think that a 188 guy would look that way. Sorry for my english... But i would have sworn, by watching his movies, that he was just a bit taller than 180. For example in the film seven he looks just 5 cms taller than brad pitt who's like 178-179... Btw could you help me Find the height of an italian star?
Gus said on 16/Jan/11
Yer but Andrea,your picking one film out of Morgans 30 odd,id agree in that film he looks about 6"1.25 range,but on the whole he looks about 6"2.25 range...
Anonymous said on 16/Jan/11
6'2" is right for him.
ANDREA [ITA] said on 13/Jan/11
come guys. he's never been more than 6'1. You are crazy to say he's like 1.88-1.90! -.-
he's at least 10-12 cms shorter than 1.95 max Tim Robbins!
Try to find a picture where he doesn't look that short in comparison with him...

if he was that height he would reach at least Robbin's forehead...

6"2.25 throughout 90s
Gus said on 11/Jan/11
6"2.75 when he was younger 6"0.75 now,about 188cm in 90s and most of 00s up and till about 2005 where he went from 187-186 and now 185
James said on 10/Jan/11
nah i think 6'3 or a hair less when younger. he was NEVER 6'4.
5'7.37 said on 10/Jan/11
He can look near 6'3 nowadays when standing dead straight, maybe he was 6'3.5 at his peak, most people can't say it since he got famous when he was already kinda old. My guess is that Tim Robbins is 6'5 and Morgan is 6'2.5 but can look 6'1 since he slouches a lot, btw, Clint could have been 6'4 when younger, but due to his age an extremely bad posture he can look near 6'1 nowadays too.
Master of Rolls said on 9/Jan/11
claim how much shrinking he gets now but still u gota admit hes still tall for an old guy
James said on 6/Jan/11
I agree today there is a very good chance morgan is 6'1.75. (187cm) now in early 70's. In 20's 6'2.75 (190cm).

however last decade i think he was 6'2 (188cm).
Gus said on 3/Jan/11
maybe but,clint would have had half an inch on Freeman,right the way through to the 90s
elRey said on 31/Dec/10
Gus says on 30/Dec/10
Was the same height as Clint Eastwood-6"2.5,now there both about 6"1.

Watching Million dollar baby, Freeman had like 2" on Eastwood

hey. how can you say that he's so tall? i dont really understand you! in every picture with tim robbins he looks at least 4 inches shorter! if tim robbins is really only 194, it is not possible that freeman is 6foot2! judging from the pictures, id swear he's max 6 foot!

He towers over Christian Bale in the Batman movies. I'm inclined to give him a 6'3"

[Editor Rob: I've not looked at photos of him for a while]

Looking slightly under 6"2 today with bad posture.

In 1992 was about 189cm. Today 187cm. Peak 189-190cm.
georgeclooneysmum said on 1/Nov/10
I think he is 6'2 now, but was closer to 6'3, in 1992. Even 10 years ago he had about 1 inch on jim carey.
James said on 1/Nov/10
6'2.5 easily at 25
brotha said on 31/Oct/10
I posted a few years back I met him face to face at a San Diego Hilton. He was 6'2.5" easily. Hollywood uses many tricks, and many star wear lifts at public events to appear larger. That would explain other guys looking tall next to Freeman, at least logically speaking.

Freeman had at least 2cm on Jim Carrey who is 6ft1 at least. Conclusion: Freeman is not shorter than 6ft2
T.J. said on 21/Jun/09
Looked almost exactly the same height as Jim Carry in Bruce Almighty.
Jim barley looked a half inch shorter
Anonymous said on 15/Jun/09
I like your accuracy Lenad, with both Freeman and Carey.
Lenad said on 5/Jun/09
I think nowadays Freeman is 188-189cm and 189-190cm at peak. In Bruce Almighty I was convinced that Carrey is 185-186cm and Freeman is 188-189cm. Minimum of an inch difference so Freeman is 6'2 minimum
Lenad said on 28/May/09
I think a weak 6ft3 at peak.
Lenad said on 4/May/09
Big King your a blind man. Freeman had minimum of an inch on Carrey
Hugh 190cm said on 13/Apr/09
Yeah 6ft3 peak is very possible. Not quite that tall nowadays except for maybe after a good nights sleep.
Big King said on 27/Mar/09
Even 6'3" is an upgraded junk for Freeman. He was about 3 inches shorter than 6'5" Tim Robbins in Shawshank Redemption. And in Bruce Almighty, Freeman looked only a half inch taller than Jim Carrey who is 6'1.5" at his best. So the only result is that Freeman is a clear 6'2" guy.
_-_-_-Hugh-_-_-_/ said on 9/Mar/09
You know I think this guy could still be 190cm. Next to guys like Dan Aykroyd and Jim Carrey (6ft1 and 6ft1.5-6ft2 respectively) He looks taller than 189cm. Like he has the frame of a 6ft4 guy. His posture is not good. Up straight he's a solid 190cm guy.
anonymous said on 9/Mar/09
Next to 5 foot 8 monica potter, 6 foot 2. 189cm with bad posture.
Ange said on 22/Feb/09
I watched Se7en and Morgan did seem to have Pitt beat by a few inches. For the record, having seen both Pitt and Clooney in person (in the early 90s) I am not under the delusion these are anything but dudes of average height rocking big boots and lifts.
nick said on 5/Feb/09
i would agree that freeman would be almost that guys height but not quite. If that man was 6'3 there would be no debate
Nate said on 3/Feb/09
hes doing some major slouching, Nick. Rob has him right.
nick said on 27/Jan/09
cb and aj are correct rob, hes around 6'1 mark
Click Here here is freeman with a 6'2 man, check the site it says it in his resume. I dont think he would be 6'3.5 and say he is 6'2. There are photos with kevin costner as well, makes him around 6 feet.
AJ said on 26/Jan/09
well no one shrinks 10cm though
TELLEM said on 25/Jan/09
i think they were saying his peak height was 6'3...the man has probably been past his peak since the late 80s.
cb said on 24/Jan/09
you got AJ, I've tried to explain that several times before. Even if the angle is not the best for judging height, even a child could do the maths. There is at least a difference of 10cm (4inches). So if Jordan is even taller than 6'5", that makes Morgan FReeman no taller than 6'2". Athletes are measured mor accurately than actors, who always exaggerate. I see Freeman more in the 6'1.25" range
brotha said on 23/Jan/09
Okay CB, fine, i'll stop with the 6'3" estimate, I mean jeez you are the greatest contributor to this site, right? I mean you get your estimates by looking at pictures and I've only seen the man up close and in person, gee I must be crazy for seeing Morgan at 6'3". Any by the way you guys need to take a closer look at the Jordan pic, it's completely in Mike's favor.
AJ said on 22/Jan/09
Everyone is saying he is 6'3 or 6'2 but MAN how can he be that tall if he looks just SMALL next to Michael Jordan who is like 6'5.

adam said on 21/Jan/09
Freeman could have been 6-3 peak. James Cromwell was and still is enormous as far as height goes. 6-7 or a shade under in his prime and nowadays still close to 6-6.
Hugh said on 19/Jan/09
My guess
Cromwell 198cm.
Freeman 189cm (maybe 191cm prime).
Affleck 189cm.
Scrieber 190cm.
Travolta 185-186cm.
cb said on 8/Jan/09
My personal guess:
Cromwell: still 6ft6
Freeman: 187-188cm no taller than 6ft2
Affleck: 185-186. (compare him to hartnett in Pearl harbor and his brother 5ft8)
Schreiber: 189cm.
Travolta: I know you're gonna throw the dogs on me, but i say no more than 181cm. Probably 5'11 max today.
cb said on 8/Jan/09
And here is one pic where travolta looks barely 5.11 next to Cromwell
Click Here

Click Here
cb said on 8/Jan/09
Cromwell looked at least 12cm taller than Morgan Freeman. Freeman looked the same height as Liev Schreiber.
But there was no difference in height between Affleck and Freeman in the movie.But on one pic he looks taller than affleck.
cb said on 8/Jan/09
I just watched the sum of all fears, and i paid attention to affleck, schreiber, freeman, cromwell. Cromwell looked extremely huge in this movie. I guess he's probably taller than what is listed on this site. But if the listed height of him is correct, than we need to downgrade a few people.
cb said on 6/Jan/09
Besides James, I took a look at the pics with him and Jordan again. 2-2.5 inches are about 7cm, am I right. Well, how can you see only such a bit of a difference. Just take a look at Morgan Freeman's eyes. He's looking quite up to Jordan. I see at least a difference of 3.5 inches.
cb said on 6/Jan/09
well james, I know the pics and the fact that both are standing on a ramp. But just google the internet by typing in bale routh and take a look at the pics. There is one I cannot upload to this page, but the picture is setted during the MTV Poopcorn Awards 2006. Both are standing on stage (even floor) and Routh is giving the reward to Bale. You'll see there is at least a difference of 3in if not more.
cb said on 2/Jan/09
wellthan Hugh; just take a look at bale near Brandon Routh, you'll see that even 5'11" might be just good for bale.
Hugh said on 30/Dec/08
I can't see Bale being under 6ft.
cb said on 22/Dec/08
STOP with all these 6"3' estimates. Morgan Freeman is a tall dude, but that's not the question. He's 187cm tops. Take a look at him with Tim Robbins, towering him by at least 10cm or Michael Jordan also by 10cm. Now even if Jordan is 6"5', that makes Morgan no taller than 6"2'.
Click Here
6"2' is the best I give him.
brotha said on 19/Dec/08
He's 6'3" still, no doubt maybe a tad taller. I have a couple of 6'5" friends, he hardly appeared much shorter, when I saw him in person.
Arikado said on 11/Dec/08
must have been 6"3 in his younger years .. possibly stands 6 "2.75
cb said on 10/Dec/08
6'2" MAX. 10cm more than Brad Pitt in Seven, sorry for all the women who love Brad Pitt, but he's a weak 5'10". 5'11" is his dream height. Compare him with Eduard Norton for more proof.
Morgan Freeman compared to Christian Bale is 6-7cm taller. Bale is a weak 6 footer, more a strong 5'11".
Hugh said on 2/Dec/08
He was about 2 inches taller than Brown. Clancy was probably 6ft3 at that time. So he could be 6ft5 for all we know.
Hugh said on 25/Nov/08
I think 6ft3 when younger is a very strong possibility.
Lenad said on 19/Nov/08
Also James in certain camera angles it could look like there was a lot of height Robbins had over Freeman and Brown but up close, Robbins had a similar amount of height over the 2 guys. So Clancy Brown and Morgan Freeman seem pretty much even in height.
anonymous said on 13/Nov/08
My mistake he's 71. I still think he's between 6 foot 2 and 3.
anonymous said on 10/Nov/08
anonymous, he is only 71 years old. But to his height, he usually looks 6`2-6`2.5 to me. 6`3 though would not shock me
anonymous said on 8/Nov/08
6 foot 3 is just a little exaggerated. He is not that tall and jim carrey is a tall man. He looks built for a 77 year old man and was maybe 10-13cm taller than jack nicholson. I would say he's 6 foot 2 max. I just cant see him taller.
Lenad said on 5/Nov/08
Clancy and Morgan looked similar height to me. Maybe I was half blind
Hugh said on 4/Nov/08
Actually Clancy was about half an inch taller than Freeman. However Freeman probably lost a bit of height by that time. I'd say Freeman was 6ft3 at his peak and now a solid 189cm. Still legitimitely tall.
ed said on 31/Oct/08
just saw Shawshank again... in the prison cell after Andy has broken out, he is clearly 1 inch taller than Clancy Brown who is listed at 6.3. They are standing side by side on even ground in the cell.
Brotha said on 30/Oct/08
Bob H, I saw Morgan last year in La Jolla CA, he's still easily 6'3", no doubt.
Bob H. said on 29/Oct/08
The first time I recall seeing Freeman is in Robert Redford's 1980 "Brubaker". He looked easily 6'3" and very very tough!! After 28 years and being 70+ years in age, I'd expect him to now be 6' 1 1/2" or so. I am 66 and have lost 1 inch in height from my prime.
Big King said on 27/Oct/08
Freeman was three inches shorter than Tim Robbins in the Shawshank Redemption.
Anonymous said on 23/Oct/08
Carrey is 6'1.25 to me and Morgan Freeman 6'1.75 or 6'2 now he looks at least 3 inches shorter than Robbins.
anonymous said on 21/Oct/08
I watched shawshank redemption and he was shorter than tim robbins by about 12 cm. In the bucket list he was taller than jack nicholson who is 173cm. In Bruce almighty he was shorter than jim carrey. I would say he's 6 foot. That's a good height for a 77 year old man. He is a respected actor. He's a good actor.
Anonymous said on 20/Oct/08
Murray is well under 6'1 now.
Lenad said on 20/Oct/08
Adam these are my estimates:
Freeman 6'2.5-6'3
Brown 6'2.5-6'3
Robbins 6'5-6'5.5
Ange said on 13/Oct/08
I like Freeman for 6'2.5. Personally, I think Caine or Robbins is a better measuring stick than Bale. Bale seems height shifty to me. Also, isn't Bill Murray tall? I always thought of him as 6'1 or in that neighborhood.
adam said on 12/Oct/08
I think his peak was at least 6-3. In Shawshank Redemption he was towered by Tim Robbins who is a real mountain. At least 6-5. His 6-4
Anonymous said on 10/Oct/08
Forest Whitaker is really under 6'1.75 now.
Lenad said on 10/Oct/08
In Shawshank Redemption he was taller than everyone except Tim Robbins and Clancy Brown. Clancy Brown was the same and Tim Robbins was a couple of inches taller. 6'2.5 quite possible.
Anonymous said on 8/Oct/08
I saw it and he's got 4 inches shorter than him cromwell is now 6'6 in a bad posture and freeman was at least 6'2. he was also slightly shorter to ben affleck
JC said on 5/Oct/08
Just rewatched Sum of All Fears where he's walking with James Cromwell. Cromwell is 6'7" and Morgan is only a few inches shorter...
Hugh said on 4/Oct/08
Forest Whitaker is 6ft2ish. 6ft1.75.
Hugh said on 4/Oct/08
He still looks this height. Incredible at his age. Never met him or saw him but looking at recent photos next to Jim Carrey he's still looking 6ft2.5.
Anonymous said on 3/Oct/08
he looks in the range 6'1 and 6'2 now in good posture
Anonymous said on 23/Sep/08
Exactly Lenad and James,Forest Whitaker seems to be well under 6'2 now depending his bad posture beside Freeman
Lenad said on 16/Sep/08
Looks at least a weak 6'2 (187cm) so 6'3 peak possible for me.
Anonymous said on 12/Sep/08
he has never been 6'4 I saw Chain reaction a couples of days ago and he was only a good inch taller than Keanu Reeves so 6'2 is reasonable nowdays not over,whatever James he's quite tall.

I met Morgan Freeman recently, and hes definetly around 6ft3. Im 5ft11 and standing next to him, hes still pretty taller then men.
dits said on 22/Jul/08
in unforgiven,with clint eastwood,he looked to be the exact same height as him.i think clint and morgan are of almost same height,although i haven't seen clint recently to be able to comment how they stand today.

i believe morgan is in the 6'2-6'3 range,because thats where clint was back in 1990-1992.
thekiddd said on 11/Jul/08
He could have been 6'3" when he was younger. I always thought 6'2" or 6'3" for him.
Yaspaa said on 15/Apr/08
With 6'4 Liam Neeson in the background,Morgan does look 6'2.5
Jake Is Back said on 23/Mar/08
6'4" peak height for Freeman is absurd.

Danimal said on 24/Feb/08
I think he could have been as tall as 6'3.5" at his peak. Still looks a solid 6'2"-6'2.5" today at 70 years old. Appeared to be taller than David Letterman only this month on his show. Tim Robbins did have 3-4" on Morgan in Shawshank Redemption (1994), but then again, I believe that Tim is NO less than 6'6".
dmeyer said on 29/Jan/08
i a walking scene freeman looked 3 to 3.5 in taller than bale ,i dont see eye to eye i see eye to neck
Brotha said on 28/Jan/08
Just saw Batman Begins. There's some interesting scenes with Freeman and Bale where they are looking eye to eye. Definitely, the camera angles and tall footware Bale probably wore were at work in these scenes. Another movie that makes Freeman look shorter is Lean On Me, where there's a scene with some of the school staff in an office where several of the men are taller than Freeman. These must have been some really tall extras. Freeman is an easy 6'3" as I've seen him on a flat surface and face to face at the Hilton Torrey Pines.

I agree with Joshua. Freeman could have been 6-4 when younger

Are there any quotes from Freeman on his own height, Rob? I've often wondered if he had a peak height of 6'3".
Joshua said on 6/Nov/07
He has imo always looked very tall. Only 6-2
Daniel said on 16/Oct/07
Maybe Freeman's health is better than Travolta's, Willis' and Eastwood's, even at his age. And, in what respects to ethnic origins, Freeman is -according to his own words as I read on an interview- mixed black, french and indian. Obviously mostly black, of course. BTW, a very good presence and acting!
dmeyer said on 25/Sep/07
i geuss black men loose less height since freeman lost nothing at 70 and willis travolta at early 50 lost noticable height
ras said on 23/Aug/07
Man! In those pics with Forest Whitaker he looks about 2 inches taller than Forest, and I even think Whitaker is 6 ft 2.5. so Morgan could be 6 ft 4 really, or he likes using boots a lot. It also is weird to see he hasn't shrunk at all.
Ball-a-Hallic said on 7/Aug/07
how tall is tom robbins from shawshank he was alot taller than freeman who seems 6'2... then robbins looked 6'5 but idk is freeman 6'2 or 6'3

When I saw 'Bruce Almighty' I thought Carey was 6-2 and Freeman 6-3. But whatever they are, I saw about an inch difference
dmeyer said on 16/Jul/07
rob how do you explain that he lost no height at 70 years old when some people like willis and travolta already lost 1 to 2 cm in early 50s

[Editor Rob: he'll have lost a few mm, but it appears he is at the lower end of the loss scale, whereas Clint is at the severe end with kyphosis and who knows what else with his discs.]

Yeah he does have a good 3 - 3.5 inches on Pitt in Se7en. This is the reason why I think Pitt is 5'11.5, or, in other words, a solid 182cm guy. Basically, Pitt being close to 6'.
