I saw Lean on Me yesterday and Morgan towered over everyone, including 5'8" or 9" Robert Guillaume. May have been 6'3" at his peak, 6'2 1/2" on that movie in 1989 and 6'2" today.

I remember him on the Electric Company when I was a toddler. He really worked his way up the ladder.

He looked taller than that on The Electric Company.

what kind of slippers give you 2cm...some slippers ay mate. ???
[Editor Rob: his slippers could be 1cm, 1.5 or even 2, watch slevin and take a guess. One thing, Freeman has an advantage in footwear for certain]

He could be 6' 3". He looks too tall for 6' 2".

Jason said on 6/May/06
He looked slightly under 6'2'' opposite Christian Bale in Batman Begins.

I dont think Freeman is 6-1. Still looks 6-2 to me.

Maybe even 6ft and .5 inches. Affleck should be 6'2.
Quad-4 said on 3/May/06
I would of guessed 6'1". His height was 6'2 in his youth.

Just watched Street Smart(1983) with Morgan Freeman and Christopher Reeve, and Freeman was at most an inch shorter than the 6ft4 Reeve. Granted Reeve's slouches and hunches his shoulders a lot in movies, but when he stood up straight they were very close in height. In Million Dollar Baby he was about a 1/2 inch taller than Eastwood, making him in the 6ft2 range now, which would make sense, the guy is in his mid 6o's. Rob's estimates are spot on!

no, i met morgan freeman in person when he and jet li were in new york to plug their new movie, unleashed, morgan was no taller than 6-1. If jordan is 6-4ish, then morgan is no taller than 6-1, possibly less. 6-3 is preposterous...
dmeyer said on 6/Apr/06
in batman he looks a solid 6'3"

Thomas- what other celebs have you met?

hey rob freeman is around 189 190 cm at 69 years old how tall was he in his 20's
[Editor Rob: earliest film I can remember him in is brubaker, but in his 20's possibly 191cm, who knows really?]
dmeyer said on 14/Jan/06
after watching getty images i think freeman is in the 190 191 cm range
Thomas said on 24/Dec/05
Yup, yup. I work at the front of a 5 star hotel in Los Angeles. We get every, and I mean every celebrity you could imagine there. As a result, you'll see my postings all over this site, either verifying or rebuffing celebs' heights. One thing's for sure, Morgan Freeman looks at least twenty years younger than he really is. He has fantastic posture and quite a charm to him. In person, one can plainly see why this guy made it big in the industry.
I'm 6'1 7/8" tall. Morgan Freeman had me by about a half inch. The both of us were standing straight up (I made sure I was), on even ground and with similarly thick shoes. He is a legitimate 6'2 1/2". Sweetest fella, as well.

He walked right pass in Santa Monica at the outside mall last fall, he was a good 6 2.5 plus good estimate Rob

how could you distinguish 0.5-1 in of difference just by looking at somebody? you can tell if a person's EYES are higher in the air than your EYES, but that doesn't mean that he/she is taller
sam said on 24/May/05
Well, JJ, I was standing on a sloping sidewalk on which he was standing on the taller part, but I still maintain at least 6'2". If celebheights says 6'2.25" I'd buy that.
JJ said on 21/May/05
Well Sam I am telling you he's not 6'2". I am a legit 6'1.5" and when I saw him he looked as tall as or slightly shorter than me. He was only a few feet from where I was standing.
sam said on 20/May/05
JJ, I was measured a little bit over 6'4" in a physical, without shoes on. And I'm telling you, Morgan Freeman is not under 6'2", and is if anything a little over that. Of course, I didn't stop him to measure the amount that his shoes added, but if they were platform shoes, I think I would have noticed.
JJ said on 16/May/05
With shoes on he might be close to 6'2", I am talking about real height here. You even said you are ABOUT 6' 4.5", and I presume with shoes on. Without shoes you are about 6'3, depending on the type of shoes you are wearing? So Morgan is right around 6'1" WITHOUT SHOES if you think he's 2" shorter than you.
I thought he looked shorter than 6'2" even with shoes on though.
sam said on 16/May/05
I saw him in person in New York and he looked very tall to me. The sidewalks slope somewhat and he was standing on the upper part and it helped that his posture was impeccable, but he definitely looked over 6'2", closer to 6'3". I myself am about 6'4 1/2" and I would have ventured to guess that he was approximately 1 1/2 to 2 inches shorter. No way is he 6'1".
JJ said on 16/May/05
If you measure the top of his hair maybe. I saw Morgan recently at a charity event, and he looks no taller than 6'1" with shoes on.
joeyb said on 26/Feb/05
Morgan next to Ben Affleck...i always thought Morgan was taller than 6 2...or maybe Ben is just shorter than 6 3?
