I think 6’2.5 peak. Minimum strong 6’2.
Faramir said on 1/Jun/23
Recently watched Shawshank for the zillionth time and Mr. Freeman looked spot-on this (peak) listing, based on comparisons with the rest of the cast. He was 56-57 then, so maybe had dropped a tiny fraction and peak was closer to 6'2.5". P.S. Happy birthday to one of my favorite actors. Did not realize it till I checked on his age at Wiki.

Astonishing for a man who's 85 or 86 to still have not lost more than an inch, there aren't many men over 80 who would still be over 6 ft 1 barefoot!

Hey I’ll just say it, Morgan freeman did a helluva job to maintain his height…. He’s lost only 3 cm?? He makes me want to quit working out. He’s still 185-6 cm tall like what?? Make it make sense. He has godly genetics
Sandy Cowell said on 25/Feb/23
I’m glad to see that Morgan Freeman is starring in my film tonight, which is Johnny Handsome, which is debuting on the Legend/Horror channel. It’s from 1989, and I expected it to be fairly dated by looking at Lance Henriksen, who still had brown hair back then.

Now one thing I thought rather out of character for Morgan is to call the deformed Mickey Rourke ‘an ugly son of a bitch’. I can’t imagine him being like that in real life. Having recently watched him in The Shawshank Redemption, I found it amusing that he could look so much shorter than his co-star, who is Tim Robbins, a VERY tall guy.

I’m giving the beautifully spoken Mr Freeman 6ft2.25 and 6ft1.5 for today’s height. 😁
berta said on 2/Jan/23
If we look at all the photos of him and Cooper its safe to say there is no less than 2 cm beetween them. Morgan also have loose posture with him. standing tall it could be 3 cm.Morgan is probably 186,5 if he is measured today. I still insist on the full 189 for his peak. The only guy that could make him look under 189 peak was christopher reeve. in some old movie it look like atleast 3 cm if not more beetween them and reeves was 192. If reeves was the full 193 then morgan did look legit 189. Overall morgan have seemed that height in all other movies.

How tall would you guess that Morgan Freeman appears to be next to Bradley Cooper?
Editor Rob
1st shot did suggest Freeman is still about 6ft 1 with Cooper, although second shot Cooper leaning but nearer camera.

Here’s a different angle of Bradley Cooper standing next to Morgan Freeman:

It certainly appears as if Bradley Cooper is dropping a bit of height. He does have a hair advantage though.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 28/Dec/22
The photos of Morgan Freeman and Bradley Cooper were taken recently, and you can at least tell that he’s still likely a bit over 6’1” today:

Based off of the eye levels, there’s no more than an inch between them. I’m also not completely convinced that the latter is standing up straight.

Jackson and Freeman were both 6ft2 and change guys in their prime but Morgan has done far better in retaining height
192cm Leprechaun said on 11/Sep/22
He was 2 inches shorter than 6'3" Donald Sutherland in Outbreak, so it's weird. Freeman obviously shrunk the most though still taller than the Game of Thrones guy and Jada Pinkett is 4'9". 6'1" peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/22
Freeman was looking 6ft2 up to 7 years ago

Sinclair said on 3/Jun/22
Strong 6’2” peak is understandable enough but I think Samuel L. Jackson was a stronger 6’2” than Freeman.

Disagree. I think Morgan had a better chance of measuring the full 6ft2½ while Sam was more 6ft2-2¼ range.
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 5/Aug/22
Still looks a solid 187 cm. Esp in pics of him next to Zach Braff.

@Rob, is it possible Morgan Freeman could be 6'1.75 on a good day perhaps? Still looks near 6'2 even today. Quite remarkable considering he's in his 80s.
Editor Rob
Last couple of years I can't see him quite that high

Hey rob how tall do you think Morgan was in Shawshank redemption because I found many times that 6’5+ Tim robbins towered over him

He did make him look under 6ft 1, but maybe the road isn't level.

Editor Rob
That might be a point in his career where he had lost a fraction
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 24/Jan/22
I'm watching 'Seven' now.

Morgan's is one of my favourite voices in showbusiness. 😁
Rapha said on 19/Jan/22
Hi Rob

When do you think he started to shrink ? My guess is not before 65.
Editor Rob
Yes, I
think he made it to near that range without any sort of visible losses.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 17/Jan/22
I was talking about the film 'Seven' only yesterday, and as it's only a few feet away, I'm bound to be seeing it soon. I certainly plan to! I can compare Morgan with Brad Pitt. 😆👌

Morgan's peak - 6ft2.5
Today - 6ft1.5
Vick said on 14/Jan/22
Kobe is almost 6’5 and freeman is barely scraping 6’2, people in that 6’0.5-6’2 range can look much shorter around a 6’5 guy who is massively built like Kobe especially in a pair of dress shoes adding an additional cm.Anyways freeman can still touch 6’2.5 lmo after 5 hours up and drop to 6’2.25. He obviously cleared 6’3 by a fraction after a 10 hour sleep.
berta said on 11/Jan/22
Rob what do you think about the full 189 peak? The guy always looked over 6´2 peak. I actully belive he was even a little over 189 in his 30s. maybe 189,3 ish. At best 187 today but could be 186-
Editor Rob
6ft 2.25 or 2.5. Either figure could be argued.
Lorne said on 6/Jan/22
Tall guy kept his height longer than Eastwood, as started shorter now taller, although Eastwood might be a lot older
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 31/Dec/21
@Celebheights 6'1.5 well yeah he look more than 3 inches shorter than Kobe on that picture, but in my opinion, Kobe's forehead are relatively smaller than average so that make his eye level much higher than guys with simillar stature as him, so that make people look rather shorter than they actually are when standing next to him, that's why i think Morgan can still have 6'1 based on that picture.

6'2.25 peak , 6'1.25-6'1.5 current (he's really old now)
dreus23 said on 17/Dec/21
@celebheights 6'1.5 He doesn't even look short lol? Kobe is a very tall 195 cm guy and most people would dwarf in his presence. Freeman looks at most 8-9 cm shorter than him which puts him at 186-187 range, which is very tall for a man his age.
Truthteller27 said on 7/Dec/21
I seen him in a movie with John Cusack and I believe Morgan was like 62 in that movie and still looked 6'2.

Arch- but even a strong 6ft2 isn't massive
Tall Sam said on 14/Nov/21
Freeman is a guy in person a couple decades ago when I met him who was probably just a little over 6’2” but could definitely come off taller, a man who had good posture and a confident way about him. Running into a young Paul Rudd at the same time, he seemed very different, slumped, rushed, shortish and not wanting to chat with folks.
Hong said on 14/Nov/21
Agreed Arch,Like Clint Eastwood a guy IMO who is probly in the 1.90cm range but Hollywood height of 1.93cm makes a guy like Freeman seem at lest 1.90cm in comparison,but only because of Clint's over inflated height.lMO Clint and Morgan would at peak have been very similar with maybe Clint having a slight advantage of half an inch or so?
Arch Stanton said on 12/Nov/21
True, a real strong 6'2 in Hollywood will have some people thinking 6 ft 4 because of the height inflations...
Hong said on 11/Nov/21
I think because of all the over inflated heights in Hollywood sometimes people's actual heights can be difficult to assess,Freeman is probably just a very honest 6ft2 guy and sometimes can seem taller because of the exaggerations of some of his Hollywood counterparts.

Looks more 6ft2 flat with Reeves in that clip

Street Smart is a classic...and an epic debut for Morgan. Played a real nasty piece of work in that
Hong said on 1/Nov/21
Click Here @Jtm your right about the posture,Here's a clip from The movie,and yes Reeves does look the taller guy,Morgan is looking more than an inch shorter there.
Tall Sam said on 30/Oct/21
I don’t personally see a full inch between Freeman and Jackson, but would definitely buy peak Freeman having a nice edge on the younger Jackson.
Jtm said on 30/Oct/21
Hong said on 24/Oct/21
Click Here In the movie Street Smart, there wasn't muck between 6ft3.5 Christopher Reeve and Morgan,Reeve my have had a slight edge but not a full inch.

nah reeves is easily taller with similar posture. only camera angles and freeman's military posture made it looked like they were around the same height.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Oct/21
He's holding up remarkably well for his age still I have to say!! He wasn't far off 6'3 peak, similar sort of height to Sidney Poitier I'd say.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Oct/21
See, easy inch on Sam Jackson 15 years ago

Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Oct/21
I think he still clears 6ft1 with ease today. Within the 186-187cm zone and has held steady at that for a few years. 6ft2½ as a peak seems fair. He was still looking at least 6ft2 10-15 years ago
Hong said on 24/Oct/21

He definitely looked taller than Gene Hackman and Michael Caine who are both listed as 6ft2 peak,if not 6ft3 he was pretty close,I think 6ft2.75 is believable for his peak.
Crixus said on 21/Oct/21
He's always looked a hair under 6'3. Likely 6'2 out of bed today.

Click Here Here's 68 year old Morgan with 5ft11.5 listed Timberlake,an ageing Freeman looks a comfortable 6ft2 in comparison,a young peak Freeman you can add another half and inch.I believe Morgan was close to 6ft3 peak and was the type of guy who just rounded down.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 13/Oct/21
I wouldn’t argue 6’3” for him. In the movie Edison, Morgan Freeman appeared to be roughly 2”-2 1/2” inches taller than Justin Timberlake. If Morgan Freeman was in his peak 6’3”, then Timberlake’s 6’1” claim all of a suddenly makes sense.
Hong said on 10/Oct/21
Click Here Here's Morgan on cowboy boots looking 6ft4 range next to 6ft6 James Cromwell,Morgan was in his mid sixties and Cromwell a couple of years younger,by the way I'm adding Morgan's boot's,barefoot he'd be 6ft2.5 to 6ft2.75 I'd guess.

Both Morgan and Ted Danson could be around 6’1.5” range these days.

He was definitely 6ft 2.5 and was no less than 189cm. I don't have any doubts anymore, and I hope you won't either, Rob.
Editor Rob
6ft 2.25 to 2.5 is a likelier range Morgan could have been peak than say a flat 6ft 2. I can see why you and many others would give him the 2.5.
Sree Smith said on 19/Sep/21
He can look bit taller than Ben affleck.

Rob along with Nicole Kidman if you go on Amazon or Netflix Freeman in the majority of films.

Editor Rob
Yeah they are good actors who have appeared in a lot of films now. Still not seen all of either actor's body of work, probably about 75% or so.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jul/21
Morgan is the posterboy height retention. 83 now, he should be about 6 ft flat now!
viper said on 2/Jul/21
I know a guy in his early 50s who claims he has shrunk a little, but he played football in high school and college.

He admits that's where it came from.
viper said on 2/Jul/21
Were they into sports growing up?

Any injuries? Overweight?

That's really strange to shrink that much If they were not.

There can be a lot of factors involved.

Usually, a healthy person without a sports background and no injuries is not going to shrink much.

You do realize our obesity problem is insane in the United States.

It's more than just "older people" I know.

I golf with many, many different older people. Most haven't shrunk much, If at all. At most their shrinkage is similar to Morgan Freeman.

I know 1 man who says he has shrunk 2, but he's an outlier.
BT said on 1/Jul/21
@Viper: I can assure you they are just normal people with normal, non-back-taxing jobs, yet they shrunk a noticeable amount before age 60. Either way I've said pretty much all I'll say on the matter. You won't be able to debunk human shrinkage by bringing up older people you know who seemingly haven't shrunk much or some who can look taller when they want to. People shrink with age, some more than others, and I'm sure most would agree Freeman hasn't shrunk as much as you'd expect from a tall 80-something-year-old.
viper said on 28/Jun/21
Those studies don't take into account what your occupation is.

A dentist bending over all the time is probably going to lose a bit of height
viper said on 28/Jun/21
Those late 50s people were probably hardcore sports people or ran everyday.

So much of perceived shrinkage is just worse posture.

Out of all the people I've known over the years, and only one that has even remotely shrunk to my eye is my eye doctor
Tall In The Saddle said on 28/Jun/21

Agreed. While people do obviously shrink substantively as they age, in some cases a fair amount of their height depreciation is comprised of poor and/or compensating posture. It takes more effort to stand at attention at any time and with advancing age, for some folk it might literally be downright too painful also. A lot of current photos of Clint Eastwood crop out the lower vision of broadly planted feet and clearly bent knees (possibly to for more secure balance at his age also). Anyway, when I first saw Morgan on screen I would've casually given him 6'3" at peak. At the least, I don't think he was anything below 6'2 1/2".
BT said on 26/Jun/21
@Viper: Circumstantial evidence is what that is. Maybe it's genetic, maybe it's lifestyle related, maybe it's both, but the majority of people do tend to shrink at some point even if you personally know someone who seemingly hasn't shrunk at an advanced age. I too know a few people like that who stayed within 0.5in of peak height through 70's and early 80's, I'm not saying they don't exist, but for every one of those I could name 10 others who had lost 1-2 inches at the same age, even a couple who lost near 1 inch by late 50's.
viper said on 25/Jun/21
I know a a guy who is near 80 who is a former minor league baseball player. He was listed at 6-3 and still looks it.

Based on my family and others I think a lot of it is poorer posture, not shrinkage.

I see so many older guys when they stand up straight for something like the national anthem, they automatically become "taller" all of a sudden. Hell my dad seems closer to 6-1 when that happens
viper said on 25/Jun/21
That's really hard to believe when my dad's 3 college friends in their early 70s look the same next to my 6-0 dad compared to pics over 40 years ago.
BT said on 24/Jun/21
@Viper: Shrinkage is very much prevalent for your average guy or gal. The majority has dropped over 1 inch by 70-80 Click Here. About 0.5in lost every decade past age 40 is what I keep seeing as the average for men, but good for your uncle! Mine held onto his 5'11.5 peak until early 70's, as of 77 he's down to 5'11 flat, but that doesn't prove anything other than that, as with any statistic, there are outliers.
Almost 180cm guy said on 3/Jun/21

Rob, Morgan looked like a good example of a 6ft 2.5 guy until 20 or 30 years ago, but today he is 6ft 1.5 or 6ft 1.25 at worst but still no less than 186 cm. Is there a chance you will give him an upgrade?
Editor Rob
a proportion of visitors would give Morgan 6ft 2 and change, others 6ft 2.5. Either is arguable as a peak, at the moment I've kept him just over 6ft 2...
berta said on 1/May/21
no doubt that the guy was 189 at peak. could even pull of 190 but i think 189 is what he was. today he can still look close to 6´2 but i believe if he gets measured he will probably be about 186,5 or 186. lost 1 inch at most. thats very good for his age.
Jtm said on 20/Apr/21
I don’t think he was less than 6’2 peak but not entirely convince that he was over . He always had very good posture and many actors lie about their height or claimed their height with shoes on.
Tall Sam said on 18/Apr/21
I meet Morgan nearly 20 years ago. IMO he looked solidly between 6’2” and 6’3”, he held good posture in person. I doubt he was anything 6’2” to be sure.
viper said on 18/Apr/21
BT said on 12/Feb/21
Surely he's lost the full inch by now, Rob? If he in fact has only lost 0.5in at 83 years of age he's a medical marvel!

My 82 year old Uncle is still his peak 5-8. Shrinking isn't nearly as prevalent as you think it is
Vincent Caleb said on 17/Apr/21
Solid to strong 6’2” is where I would put him so I agree, I was just saying 6’2” max, which implies 6’1.5-6’1.75” at peak, looks low considering how he looked in movies like se7en and unforgiven. He was easily 3.5+ inches over a known height frauder like Brad Pitt.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Apr/21
I think he can get over 6ft1 flat now
Canson said on 16/Apr/21
@Vincent: 188 or maybe what Rob lists him. I don’t rule out either figure
Vincent Caleb said on 15/Apr/21
C’mon 6’2” easily peak is reasonable not 188 cm max. I’d say 189 max.

Good update for current. It is still the most I would give him though as he has looked a bit shorter recently.

6’1 is too low for his peak height. He’s still at least 6’1 today, and maybe even 6’1.5” still.
Editor Rob
I would be surprised if there are many folk who'd estimate Freeman as short as 6ft 1 peak. One of the most believable 6ft 2 guys out there.
Davidjr said on 5/Jul/20
It's to tall to be true I give him 6 foot 1 inch in peak Height and 6 foot at most or 5 foot 11.75 inches at his actually height

6’1.5 max today. 6’2 peak

🎉🎁🎂 Happy Birthday Morgan! 🎂🎁🎉

A Very Happy Birthday to Morgan Freeman, who celebrated his 8️⃣3️⃣rd Birthday yesterday. One exceptional actor! 👌

6ft2.5 peak; 6ft1.75 today.
Nearly 180cm guy said on 1/Jun/20
Morgan is celebrating his 83rd birthday today and I don't believe he lost only 1/2 inch. In 2005, Morgan met Jet Li, RZA and Bob Hoskins, he looked like giant next to Jet and Bob but RZA stood a little closer to the camera than Morgan: Click Here Click Here
But in other photos, when Morgan and RZA are standing at a similar distance from the camera, Morgan looked much taller than RZA: Click Here Click Here
Rob, please look again at his photos from 1995 next to Michael Jackson: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
And his photos next to Joan Collins and Tom Skerritt from 1990: Click Here Click Here
In 2000, Morgan met Frances Fisher: Click Here Click Here Click Here
He was wearing normal shoes and she was most likely wearing heels: Click Here Click Here
In 2000, Morgan looked taller than Clint Eastwood: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
It looks like Clint even had slightly thicker shoes than Morgan then! If Clint really had around 6ft 2 at that time, Morgan must have had 6ft 2.5. Rob, after all I've seen, I think Morgan really deserves a upgrade to 6ft 2.5.

Rob Morgan Freeman in his Peak was 6ft 2 188cm i say now a days hes the same height of Michael Cane wich he was 6ft 2 as well and now hes 184.2 cm 6ft ½ i watched Going in style yesterday no way in hell is he 6ft 1 ¾ hes 6ft ½ now a days

or some are listed too high especially pitt.
Nearly 180cm guy said on 15/Apr/20
@cmillz: You can say that in the case of some photos but definitely not at all of them. For example, in his first two photos next to James Woods, Woods is closer to the camera and only on the third they are at a similar distance. And in the picture with Jerry Lewis, here not Morgan but Lewis stands a little closer to the camera. Also in his photos next to Brad Pitt, Elisabeth Shue and Robin Wright they are also located at a similar distance from the camera. However, when it comes to his photos with Ashley Judd, I was mistaken when writing about their footwear in my last comment, because it wasn't about their footwear, but only about Ashley heels. Looking at photos, videos and movies of Morgan from the 80's, 90's and the beginning of the 21st century I would still say that Morgan was one of the more legit 189 cm guys and that is why I hope that Rob will someday give Morgan 6ft 2.5 as his peak height.
cmillz said on 14/Apr/20
Morgan has camera advantage in a lot of those pics.
Nearly 180cm guy said on 12/Apr/20

He towers brad pitt it looks a minimum of 3.5 inches in Se7en. Sometimes 4 inches
berta said on 12/Jan/20
both him and Lance henrik was probably 6´2 1/2 peak. but if i would bet on one being taller than the other then i would guess morgan Freeman. morgan may have measured something like 189,3 and Lance 188,9. basically the same height but morgan would edge him i Think. today i Believe morgan is no taller than 187 at best and could be 186,5. he and gerard butler is pretty mutch the same height.
Nearly 180cm guy said on 27/Dec/19
Rob, I think 6'2.5" can still be argued for Morgan. You can look at him next to Conan O'Brien again when they met in 1993 (video number 4 and see from 28:07): Click Here
I also found his two pictures next to CCH Pounder (which you met in person) from 1986 from the movie set Resting Place: Click Here Click Here
I remember that when recording this scene, Pounder wore heels and Morgan had normal shoes, so I believe that Morgan was at least 8 inches taller than she was. Now look at his photos with Elisabeth Shue from 2001 and pay attention to her heels: Click Here Click Here
Morgan might have looked full foot taller than she. Here is another photo of Morgan next to Forest Whitaker from 2007: Click Here
Here is a photo of Morgan next to Ashley Judd from 1997: Click Here
In 1996, Morgan met Laurence Fishburne and he looked at least two and a half inches taller than him: Click Here
Their footwear: Click Here Click Here
Here is a photo of Morgan next to Tim Robbins from 1995: Click Here
Robbins is closer to the camera than Morgan, and it is quite possible that Robbins had slightly thicker shoes: Click Here Click Here

Also look at his photos next to Christian Slater, Minnie Driver and Randy Quaid from 1998: Click Here Click Here
Their footwear: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
And now look at his photos next to Stephen Dorff from 1992: Click Here Click Here Click Here
Their footwear: Click Here Click Here
Stephen was 19 years old so he probably reached his full height by then and Morgan looked over 7 inches taller than him. Morgan met Blair Underwood in 1998: Click Here
Their footwear: Click Here Click Here
Morgan looked a good 4 and a half inches taller than him. It's true that he maintained his height very well and still looks over 6'1", the evidence for this is that when he recently met Joe Manganiello he looked only 3 inches shortet than him and also looked at least an inch taller than Chris Tucker when he also recently met him: Click Here Click Here Though in the 80s and 90s he looked like a good 189 cm guy. Rob, can you now give him an upgrade of his peak height to 6'2.5"?
Editor Rob
2.25 or 2.5, either figure can be argued.

Maybe like Lance Reddick, both guys claim 6ft 2, but can look near 6ft 2.5 at times...
DeoDexter said on 7/Nov/19
What is this magic? Such small height loss.

Rob, he is best known for being God, you should add that in the description!
Wrestling Fan said on 4/Sep/19
Your estimates may be right upto some extent as both were strong 6'2" in their prime.
But Freeman being 6'2.5" is something I may not fully agree on.
Can you show me some comparisons to justify your estimates?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Aug/19
@Canson and cmillzz
Right. If he was 6'3", he would've claimed it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/19
I think today Morgan can still clear 6ft1 safely and would still edge out Sam Jackson
Canson said on 13/Aug/19
Freeman has never been 6’3 barefoot. Max 6’2
cmillzz said on 13/Aug/19
Lol, he’s never been 6’3. 6’2 in his prime, no taller.
Mama said on 13/Aug/19
Rob this guy was 6'3" in his peak he was close to height as Chris Reeve who is 6'4". Now he’s prob just 6'1.5-6'2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Aug/19
Peak Jackson - 188.6cm
Peak Freeman - 189.2cm
179cm guy said on 6/Aug/19
For his peak height, I would rule out a flat 6'2 or the full 6'3 for him and say that anywhere between 6'2.25 and 6'2.75 could be argued for him which is why 6'2.5 would be the ideal listing. It seems unlikely that he's only lost a half-inch by now, 2cm seems far more likely.
tkazi04 said on 3/Aug/19
@179cm guy. Exactly rob why don’t you just give Freeman the 6'2.5" listing even the average guess for his height is over 6-2.5
179cm guy said on 23/Jul/19
Rob, why not give Freeman the 6'2.5 listing for his peak height? At eighty-two I think that two full centimeters of loss are likely.
K.A 188 said on 18/Jul/19
Solid 6ft2 peak
Solid 6ft1 now
179cm guy said on 2/Jul/19
On second thought:
Peak: 6'2.5-2.75 (189-190cm)
Current: 6'1.75-2 (187-188cm)
I actually think that Freeman would have edged out guys like Ben Affleck, Lance Reddick, Adam Driver, Terry Crews and Ross Butler at his peak. At eighty-two I think that he's lost only two centimeters.
Hong said on 20/Jun/19
I'd go with the average guess here as his peak.
Hong said on 16/Jun/19
He looked the same height as Clint Eastwood in the 90s, Eastwood was a fraction off peak at that time and stood about 6ft2.5,so 6ft2.5 sound's like a realistic height for Freeman at that time. Also in the clip with Michael Jackson, Jackson is wearing very high heels, and if he was 5ft9 barefoot then he was 5ft11.5 in those heels, and Freeman looked 6ft4 in comparison, if you take his heel into account. He also held his own with Conan who IMO was a solid 6ft4 guy, so 6ft2.5 very believable as Freeman's height.
179cm guy said on 27/May/19
Peak: 6'2.25-2.5

Editor Rob
Neeson isn't anywhere as bad as paul bettany posture-wise, but sometimes can look 6ft 2.5-3 in photos.
'Annonymous' said on 5/May/19
Rob, I think you should not hesitate to give Morgan an upgrade of at least 6'2.5". In 1989 in movie "Driving Miss Daisy", Morgan looked from 1.5 to even two inches taller than Dan Aykroyd: Click Here Click Here
Now look at the photos on which Morgan and Dan are standing side by side: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Look at these pictures of Morgan next to Robert Duvall in 1999: Click Here Click Here
Morgan clearly bends to Robert, with a slightly better posture he could look easily five inches taller than Duvall. In this photo from 1997, Morgan looks easily four inch taller than George Clooney: Click Here
Now, two people you met in person, look at this photo of Morgan alongside Tom Skerritt and Joan Collins from 1990: Click Here
Morgan in 1993 met Conan O'Brien, look at this video from 0:26: Click Here
Morgan looked just one inch shorter than Conan. Morgan in 1995 met Michael Jackson, look at this video from 4:18: Click Here
Now look at their photos together and pay attention to their footwear, Michael had much thicker shoes than Morgan: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
In the case of Michael, I don't rule out 5'9.25" but he really made Morgan look comfortable over 6'2". In addition, even in 2007 Morgan, despite the fact that he was 70 years old, still looked taller than Forest Whitaker: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
I'm not sure the full 6'3" but sometimes even 6'2.75" looked like a arguable character for him and I just can't see Morgan shortet than 6'2.5". Rob, can you give Morgan the upgrade of his peak height by at least 1/4 inch?
Editor Rob
6ft 2.25 or 2.5 I feel is quite arguable for his peak, but I'm not sure about 2.75, I wouldn't go that high.

Redwing said on 1/Jan/19
Hey rob, how did he lose 2 cm but by now? Is it the same for Craig t Nelson?
Editor Rob
Maybe genetics and held good posture through his 60's and 70's.

Some men can make it to age 70 with 1/4 inch loss, whilst others lose significant (1.5-2 inches)...injuries, genetics, lifestyle play roles in how much we lose.

I don't think my lifestyle of working at a computer helps my own back! I need to watch my back as I get older too...

Yes, he held onto height quite well.

Yes, Sidney Poitier as well still standing tall with Obama in his 80s. Not many men around 80 who could stand close to 6'2.

@Matt6'5 I feel that a good diet and a good amount of stretching is a great way to mitigate any lossage of height. Age can take a good hold on you so it is good to start as young as possible.

Freeman from Monica Bellucci and Gene Hackman: Click Here
Freeman generally always looked much taller than Hackman. Rob, he's ending 81 this year, just a half-inch loss of his age looks a bit unreal... Please, Rob, give him at least a peak height of 6'2.5".
Tall Sam said on 2/Mar/18
I'd have no trouble seeing Freeman as edging someone like Samuel L. Jackson by a cm or even more, who really doesn't convince as being an more than a flat 6'2" standing his best at his peak, probably never being more than 6'1.5" by early evening. I've posted in the past, I saw Morgan in person many years ago and he would've been tall enough to convince people he was 6'3" range, with great posture, even though he was more of a strong 6'2".

Morgan is shorter than Kevin Kline by an inch. Kevin from old aged would of shrunk to 5'11 at most.I have Morgan Freeman pegged at 5'10 which is not strange for a man his age.I am a 5'10 man myself and i tower over most middle aged men and i'm 50. Men my age or Morgans age in Canada would be about 4 inches shorter than myself around 5'6 in height.Morgan is 5'10 today.

I am 37 and went to the wax museum in london, I was the exact same height as morga freeman altough I am only 72,88 inches flatn and the issue was this one, he surely must have shrunk with age, from my 6 inches flat to Mr Freeman 6,2 or over is impossible. I believe he was tallaer when younger... by the way I am a very amateur bodybuilder, I started working out because I was bullied at school and i am now 6 flat and weigh in at 222 pounds, not very lean cause I always kept my unhealthy diet and never took any kind of supplements, I benchpress 265 pounds 12 times and 330 6 times, don't know what theu didi at Madameme Toussout wax mueum.... I am surely vey shorther in real life.
RisingForce said on 11/Jul/17
Actually, Freeman could have been just a flat 6'2" considering there's a decent chance Christopher Reeve was a flat 6'3".

Richard, height loss can vary greatly from person to person. Freeman seems to have done unusually well not losing much at all, but Clint is the other extreme as he lost more than most.
Matt6'5 said on 9/Jul/17
He's held his height well for an older man. You just don't see very many 6ft+ men in their 80's. Rob, is it possible he was closer to 6'3 in his youth?

I don't think 6ft 3, though 6ft 2.5 argument is still believable.

Rob, is it possible he had already lost a bit by Shawshank?

He looked a strong 6ft2 w/h Robbins so I'm wondering if he was maybe taller than that in his 20's-30's
Editor Rob
Freeman I think made it to his 50's without anything lost, or anything noticeable.

Guys ! it is curious!

Today Freeman is taller than Eastwood. Clint is only 7 years older than Freeman.

Have you got any explication about it? remember Eastwood was listed in 192 cm and Freeman 189 cm in their younger days. But nowadays Freeman is taller than him with almost similar age. Do you understand this?
6'1.5 said on 27/Jun/17
Watch the first 20 minutes of london has fallen and you'll see that 6'1.25" gerard butler looks like a giant next to freeman. He probably had lifts on though
RichardSpain said on 26/Jun/17
Eastwood wasn't 192cm ! it's a joke! marketing! Eastwood was 192 cm with his boots. I think Eastwood was a solid 189cm max 190 cm younger. In this way we can understand why Eastwood is around 183cm nowadays crearly because he lost only 6 or 7 cm of his pic that's credible.

Morgan had similar height than Clint Eastwood. 189 /190cm in peak.

Morgan has good genetics. Nowadays still has good height and he is an old man.

Eastwood, Freeman and Affleck have very similar heights in his peaks. range 189/190cm

I check out those close up shots of morgan freeman with 6'4.75 kobe bryant at first i thought was 4' but theres a loop of angle and it's a solid 9cm between them. Freeman is 186cm not 6'1.75 i wouldn't go 6'1 that low now. I strongly see it he is 6'1.25 at least clear 6'1.5 in the morning.
RisingForce said on 7/Jun/17
I have to disagree, Shredder. I rewatched it again and Reeve seems noticeably taller to me, particularly when they've almost got to their table. But when I have time I'll watch the whole film. From what I remember, it was a good movie anyway.
jervis said on 2/Jun/17
At 2.01mins if you pause it you can see a clear 1 inch plus advantage for Reeves.
Shredder said on 31/May/17
I don't see much of a difference between them RisingForce , less than an inch.
RisingForce said on 19/May/17
Here he is with 6'3.5" Christopher Reeve: Click Here They appear together around 1:40 in a scene indoors and you can see as they walk around 1:56 that Reeve is clearly at least an inch taller. Strong 6'2" seems right just as he said. Problem is when an older actor claims a height, you're never sure if they're claiming a peak or current height(e.g., Ernest Borgnine). Wouldn't be surprised if he'd have claimed 6'3", would have been a lot more reasonable than Samuel L. Jackson claiming it.
RisingForce said on 10/May/17
The fact that Clint Eastwood was 6'3" flat at the time of The Unforgiven confirms Freeman at about 6'2" peak and 6'4.5"-6'5" Tim Robbins was definitely a few inches taller. I'm gonna have to check how Freeman measured up to Christopher Reeve in Street Smart.

Morgan's a brilliant actor with a great voice that's a joy to listen to! I loved it when he was fooling around at the dinner table with Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt in 'Seven' and they were giggling - so funny! And who can forget his narration and his role in 'the Shawshank Redemption'?
So the man has only lost half an inch over the years, which is exceptionally good! That's quite an achievement, and good to hear that it's possible and not an inevitability that we're all destined to shrink! I like that! It should prove encouraging to the young people who come here looking for help and advice for reaching and maintaining as good a height as possible! 🍻
My guesses are: 6ft 1.75 now and 6ft2.25 for his peak.

Morgan imo has to be a strong 6' 2.5" peak, and a 6' 1.5" current. Seen him in many movies where he was peak, including the legendary Shawshank Redemption alongside a very solid 6' 5" Tim Robbins. Definitely 6' 2.5" peak.
RisingForce said on 2/Mar/17
Danimal, if you have men who lose significantly more than average like Clint, Arnold, Hogan and Dolph, then you also must have men, who lose significantly less than average. Morgan Freeman just happens to be one of them, although I do think he could look as tall a 6'2.5" or even 6'3" at times in the early 90s. Also, that survey only included 2,084 people. A decent sample to extrapolate from, but far from enough to be conclusive with 320 million people in the US alone.

Lol. Mr President is here. A young freeman might be the taller than those 6'2-6'2.25 guys lsited here
Donald Trump said on 16/Jan/17
Who is taller. Freeman, Justin Hartley, Alan Ritchson, or Ashton Kutcher
Editor Rob
shouldn't you be busy preparing for inauguration, rather than posting on celebheights!

I think Kutcher has a chance of being more 189 than say Hartley, but Freeman at his peak may well look 6ft 2.5 at times too.
berta said on 10/Jan/17
by looking at that photo with santaro he looks the exact same height and he have poorer poster than santaro who stands really well i n that i really think he still i s188 and at peak was no less than 189 ore a littel over that. i mean with 192-193 christopher reves there was maybe 3 cm max difference not more
Mark said on 8/Jan/17
A tall guy, for sure. Until seventy years old he was a solid 6ft2.5.

Jim Carrey is no more than 6'1, maybe 6'1.25" peak.
HonestSlovene said on 1/Jan/17
6'2" solid peak and closer to 6'1" now. Anything more than 6'2.5" peak is a joke Danimal, a legitimate 6'2" tall guy is already quite tall in the west.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/16
I've said it before and I'll say it can easily put a 30-year old Jackman in that 'strong' 6ft2 category.
Ren said on 17/Dec/16
Rob, Who gives a more taller impression?
Freeman, Affleck, Reddick, Bana, Jackman, or Roman Reigns
Editor Rob
Freeman today can still look not far off 6ft 2, the last thing I remember seeing him in was that Last Vegas, and was taller than Kline for sure.

I think all of those guys (except Jackman) could (peak) be argued a fraction over 6ft 2, maybe only Reddick/Freeman more chance of hitting nearer 6ft 2.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Dec/16
So Danimal you therefore think he was 6ft4?
Danimal said on 28/Nov/16
He's 6'2" today and almost 80 years old. Most men will have lost 2" by his age. Not joking.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 25/Nov/16
He looks to be the same height as Gerard Butler:

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Nov/16
Not sure if he'd only be 6ft1 flat. 186-187cm today at worst, 189-190cm at peak
Candyman said on 16/Nov/16
Slightly taller than RGIII recently so still at least 6'2" if not more with good posture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Oct/16
Amazing that Clint peak would have had near 2in on Freeman and today it's the opposite!
Mark said on 26/Sep/16
He had an edge on Jim Carrey, so 6'2" is still fine currently.

6'2.5" is very likely.
6ftJoe said on 5/Sep/16
watching TDKR Bale cant be 511 atmost
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Sep/16
Looking at recent photos he can still look near 6ft2
jervis said on 28/Aug/16
There are no good shots of him and Clint together in unforgiven,but there are a few pics of them from that time and Clint has the edge on Morgan. Clint was about 6ft3 then.Now Morgan is taller. In last vagas he looked still a strong 6ft2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/16
Rob, how likely would 6ft1 flat be today?
Editor Rob
he may be around that today.
Mike said on 29/Jul/16
6ft 2.5 peak, no less.
Brandon said on 15/Jul/16
Peak:: 6'2.5"
Dmeyer said on 15/Jul/16
5-10 years back was only 188cm while hé looks barely smaller than 6 ft 3,5-4in 5-10 years ago Liam neeson
Dmeyer said on 6/Jul/16
in the last movie he looked a bit smaller than butler so max 6 ft 0.5 in while he looked 3in taller than 6 ft bale 7-8 years back , he probably started to lose decent amount of height
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/16
I thought he could pass for a 6ft3 guy when he was younger.
5'6.5 Indiana jones guy said on 28/Jun/16
I think his peak height was 190 cm and nowadays 187 cm.
Also, I see him at 188 cm max he could even be close to 192-193 cm at peak which is **** but to make it safe, I'm guessing 190 cm at peak.
berta said on 25/May/16
100 % 189 peak. 190 is to tall and 188 to short. But i Think he was closer to 190 than 188 peak. Can still look 188
Hypado said on 18/Apr/16
Morgan Freeman height is 6ft 2in (188 cm)

A Legit 188 guy in the movie Street Smart.
Donnie said on 14/Apr/16
Freeman is clearly shorter than Gerard Butler in London has fallen, yet Butler is listed as 186?
Matt said on 4/Apr/16
187 cm for God.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Mar/16
Robbins may very well have been a full 6ft5 in his 20's-30's and woken up at 6ft6. But really a barefoot 198cm guy in the evening peak? I don't know about one. That would bring Freeman up to almost 6ft4 which he never looked. Freeman could have been a solid 189cm guy though.
Maximus said on 28/Feb/16
Freeman usually always comes across as tall on film. He was obviously shorter than Tim Robbins in Shawshank but then again I believe Tim is around 6'5" to 6'6" tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jan/16
He still looked 189cm 10 years ago.

Question is could he have been 6ft3 at some point? said on 21/Oct/15
if you look the final scene with donald sutherland face to face,donald is cleary two inches or more tall than freeman its very clear.SO FREEMAN IS NOT 6,2 OR SUTHERLAND WAS IN THIS TIME MORE THAN 6,4 THIS MOVIE IS "OUTBREAK"
Sam said on 16/Oct/15
Not worth enduring Ted 2 to see if there's really an obvious lift shot IMO, LOL. I've seen Freeman when he was probably still full height and he stood out as tall, would be surprised...
dmeyer said on 12/Oct/15
Exept with robbins he defenetly look 6'2-2.5 up to 5-10 yrs back
MrTBlack said on 1/Oct/15

Then he'd 6'1.5" today.
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 25/Sep/15
6'2 1/4" for his peak height, and 187 CM today.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Sep/15
Peak 6'2.5 in my opinion, but I'm glad Rob has tweaked to 189 peak now at
least and a current one, which looks more accurate.
Armandy 6'1.5 said on 1/Sep/15
Peak 188 and half or 6'2.25
Rey said on 20/Aug/15
Christopher Reeve had an inch or so over him in "Street Smart."
Ron said on 15/Jul/15
I could be wrong on this, but I just saw "Ted 2" and at the end he appeared to be wearing some HUGE badly disguised lifts. Check out his shoes in the court-house, the mid-section appears to be nearly vertical and the light reflects it, his trousers do nothing to disguise it as they hang about 3 inches above his foot as if he's taller than the trousers expected and he even walks a little bit as if he's got some big uncomfortable lifts in.
Possibly the worst example if lift wearing I've ever seen.
frank said on 11/Jul/15
rob, morgan probably didn't lost anything, not even 1 cm before 70s, don't you agree? in the last few years seems that he lost 1-2 cm.
Editor Rob
he seemed to retain a 6ft 2 up to near 70 yes. Genetics and diet maybe meant his bone density was still very good.
Sam said on 6/Jul/15
Yep, a very tall guy, I met and talked to him in the late 90s. Freeman look 6'2.25"-6'2.75" at that time, commanding presence and voice in person even though I'm a solid 2 inches taller (don't recall but I believe I was fully grown by that point).
gaga said on 2/Jul/15
Rob, when did you list his peak height? Last time I checked he only had his current height listed here.
