What is this magic? Such small height loss.

Rob, he is best known for being God, you should add that in the description!

@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover
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?

@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.

Peak: 6'2.25-2.5

Rob , looking at him with Neeson its hard to see Neeson more than 2cm taller even considering haïr footwear posture , Neeson Can realy look 6'2,5 with Bad posture
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.

In shawshank redemption he looked very close to clansy brown.Tim robbins who was a weak 6'5 had only 2 inches on him.
Peak height-6'2.5-6'2.75
Current height-6'1.5-6'1.75
billionaireslayer said on 19/Mar/19
6'2 peak is believable.
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...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Dec/18
Still easily 6ft1½ today. Over 1in taller than Michael Caine (heading toward 6ft but not under)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Dec/18

Editor Rob, which celebrity do you feel has held their height (suffered the least loss) with age. My money is on Mr.Freeman here!
Editor Rob
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.
Tod Charming said on 30/Aug/18
Strong 6'2 at his youth. Strong 6'1 at his grave.
188cm KNight said on 1/Jul/18
@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".
Ken said on 11/Feb/18
Charlie get it this website you just made the dumbest statement I have ever read Morgan at 5’10 hahaha he’s 6’1.75
Charlie Evans said on 16/Jan/18
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.

189 would be a better listing for peak, he was much taller than brad pitt in "seven" and held his own against the giant Tim Robbins in "shawshank redemption".
Mark(5'9.5 said on 27/Sep/17
More like a good 6'2.5" peak for Freeman.

187 cm peak? In your dreams. :P

looking at pictures from this year he seems to shrink more now at this age. i think he is max this height now.peak 189 and today about 186,5- 187

Rob, how do you think freeman has only lost 1-2cms at 80 years of age?
Ali said on 27/Aug/17
Tall guy. Has maintained height very well. Christopher Reeve looks to be about 2 inches taller. 187cm peak and 185max today.
yansti said on 20/Jul/17
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?
Editor Rob: I don't think 6ft 3, though 6ft 2.5 argument is still believable.
even said on 8/Jul/17
6 foot 2 peak
6 foot 1.5 now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/17
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.
RichardSpain said on 30/Jun/17
Guys ! it is curious!

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

Click Here
Click Here

Rob;

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
Amy said on 19/Jun/17
Rob who would you say is taller Morgan Freeman or Ben Affleck?
James B said on 12/Jun/17
He didn't look 6'2.25 with 6'2.5-6'2.75 clint Eastwood in Unforgiven
S.J.H said on 8/Jun/17
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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Apr/17
Peak: 6ft2½-6ft2¾
Today: 6ft1½-6ft1¾
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Apr/17
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.
Richardspain said on 28/Apr/17
I think he is a solid 187cm today.Good genetics.

190cm when he was young. This man is tall.
shiva 181 cms said on 21/Apr/17
Rob is 6'2.5 peak and 6'1.5 today possible ,hard to believe he lost just 0.5" at 80 ,while Eastwood lost 4" at 87
Editor Rob: yeah you could definitely argue those figures.

Agree.
189-190 peak
187-188 now

i think 0,25 inches on peak would be better and today the listing is fine. could sometimes even now look 188

Freeman was a solid 1.5 inch taller than Jim Carrey. 6'2.5" is closer for peak.
Gwynbleidd said on 9/Mar/17
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.

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.

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

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/16
I've said it before and I'll say it again...you 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.

Slightly taller than RGIII recently so still at least 6'2" if not more with good posture.

Amazing that Clint peak would have had near 2in on Freeman and today it's the opposite!

He had an edge on Jim Carrey, so 6'2" is still fine currently.

6'2.5" is very likely.

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

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?

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.

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.

I know that this will seem like a foolish question, but how was he only a few inches taller than Steve Carrell in Evan Almighty?
Lorne said on 25/Feb/15
Finally! This is perfect, a fraction over 6ft2 peak, a fraction under today.

I must say, however, you took so long doing it he may be 6ft1.5 by now! ;)

Seriously, though, thanks, you continue improving and expanding the site, although this one was a bit overdue.
Judd said on 13/Jan/15
For sure 6'1.75" for him today is the best guess!
Not sure about his peak height...he may have been 6'2.5"...

@Editor Rob: Is there any reason why his picture shows up in the tumbnail but not on the actual page? It's the same with Bryan Cranston and a few others. A good current and peak height listing this.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/15
The full 6ft2½ is a better fit. I won't argue with his current height. He does look that
Njp said on 6/Jan/15
Looks about 2.5 to 3 inches taller than Christian Bale
Mike said on 30/Dec/14
No less than this, and probably more likely to be a full 6ft 2.5.
6ft 2.25-2.5in 189 peak
6ft 1.5-1.75in 187 today
Mike said on 16/Dec/14
If he's not 6ft 2 today, he's pretty close to it. 6ft 1.5-1.75in today and 6ft 2.5in peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/14
Comparisons w/h Connery are illogical because A) they're aren't photos of the two veteran actors together and B) Freeman is a good 7 years younger than Connery.

Rob, could Freeman be rounding down?
[Editor Rob: he might have been a little over 6ft 2, I know at times he can pass for a 189 in the 80's and 90's]

Mike said on 6/Dec/14
In fact he actually gives a taller impression than 6ft 2 Sean Connery! He really needs an upgrade to a full 6ft 2.5 thats what he generally looked. He can even give 6ft 3 impressions. He looked the same height as 6ft 2.5 Affleck also.
cole said on 23/Nov/14
He should have a 6'2.25 or 6'2.5 peak height, he still looks 6'2 or at worst 6'1.75 today.

Rob can you add a photo?

Watch The Dark Night Rises people. He looked 6'3" next to Bale, about an inch shorter than how Neeson looks in Begins and clearly taller than Michael Caine in comparison. Honestly I generally get a weak 6'3 impression of him in his films. But I don't think he looked it next to Tim Robbins who had him by about 3 inches.

Yeah, I watched a couple of his movies, recently and then I admitt he was taller than a flat 6'2" one.
Maybe he brushed 6'2.5" when he was young and today I wouldn't put him below 6'1.75"...
Although he got older he didn't lose a big amount...he's still a tall guy and great actor, too.

He did look around 6ft3 in Se7en and Shawshank Redemption.

"Peak height was 6ft 2.5in (189cm)"

In his 20s-30s possibly 190cm even. Remember he was late to the party in terms of success

Danimal said on 1/Oct/14
There should really be a before and after height listing for Morgan. He's almost 80 years old (most men will have lost 2" by then) and he still looks like a strong 6'2" + guy (taller than Ben Affleck). In his younger days, was easily over 6'3". I used to read 6'3.5" and 6'4" for him when he was young. Legit tall man who has aged very well, but has lost height nonetheless.
mike said on 25/Sep/14
There's actually a chance he could've dipped to a flat 6ft 2 at night he could look sometimes a full 3 inches shorter than legit 6ft 5 actors, like Tim Robbins other times he could look 6ft 3 (or really close to it). so this listening is pretty accurate maybe a slight upgrade to 189 he's similar to Sean Connery both 6ft 2-2.5 peak.
judd said on 13/Sep/14

I'd say he is 6'2 nowadays ( 188 cm ), maybe still 189 if he postures up.
Probably a strong 189 and maybe even 190cm in his prime.
He still looks considerably taller than Bale in the Batman series, and slightly taller than Michael Caine.

i cant se morgan freeman be just 3 cm taller than a guy like harrison ford 30 years ago more lika 5 cm difference

Honestly, even now he still gives a 6 ft 3 impression in films. I find it hard to believe he was low as 6 ft 2 pealk. He doesn't look much shorter than Paul Bettany in Transcendence.

People who think that all men shrink around 1 inch or more during the course of their life needs some biology classes.
Btw, Nikolaj Coster Waldau ( Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones ), also listed here at 6'1.5'', is undoubtedly towered by Freeman in all possible pictures by at least 5 cm.
Something is wrong here or Freeman is above 192 cm tall.

there is no way he was just 188 at peak even now in last vegas he looks 188-189. And peak was probably weak 190 ore stron 189. The dude looks 189 most of the time even now if he would stand well. If he was 188 at peak he was a very strong one and have grew to 188,6 at the age of 76 :P hahaa
Arch Stanton said on 2/Jan/14
Robbins did look about 3 inches taller in Shawshank though and if you also consider his 6'4.5" claim... Poitier was a leggy dude with a smallish torso in his prime, he had the legs of a 6'4"-6'5" guy I think but I'm not sure he looked taller than Freeman.
Arch Stanton said on 2/Jan/14
Rob the thing is I find it hard to believe he'd have been shorter at peak than Sidney Poitier. I've seen about five of Poitier's 60s films and honestly I don't think he'd have been taller than Freeman. Freeman to me looked more likely to be over the 6'2" mark than Poitier.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/14
With 189cm Sidney Poitier: Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/14
Here's a front shot Click Here That's not even close to 3 inches surely?
[Editor Rob: he's managed to maintain height well...maybe Robbins is approaching an age were his posture isn't as good as it used to be.

Rob do you think he looks a bit taller than this here Click Here ?
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/14
If you consider that guys like Ryan Reynolds have the same height listing on here I think you're undercutting his peak height slightly Rob. I think at peak he'd never had dropped under this mark and I think 6'2.5" would be a fair listing.. I don't think he's lost much at all today even at 76, he honestly looked near 6'3" next to Kline in Last Vegas.

"Peak height was 6ft 2.5in (189cm)"

188cm peak seems a little low. In Street Smarts (his best performance, IMO) he looked only 1in under Steve Reeves. He was 51 at that point. Could he have been 6ft3?

jtm said on 1/Oct/13
3 inches shorter than tim robbins in the shawshank redemption. a lot of people on robbins page are now claiming he is 6'4-6'4.5. that would mean freeman was 6'1 range at his prime but i think robbins is 6'5 and freeman's peak height was 6'2 flat.

Freeman barely reaches Kobe's eyelevel. Once again Kobe looks taller than his 6'4.75 measurement, but then again he doesnt look taller than Michael Jordan, who could be slightly shorter than 6'5...
[Editor Rob: he can appear taller in a lot of photos, 6ft 5.5 is what he can pull off looking at times. It helps that he doesn't have a low eyelevel and if he raises it slightly his eyelevel would be no more than 4 inches.]

Maybe a current height vs peak height is in order for Mr. Freeman these days, Rob? He is 76 after all! Personally I'd say 6'2.25 (189 cm) peak, and 6'1.75 (187 cm) today.

No way did this guy have 3in on Dan Aykroyd. 1-1.5in maybe.

I think 6"2" on the dot now. Has more height over Christian Bale than Michael Caine. 6"1.75"/187cm at worst today.

189cm peak for definite. Looked 6"3" in Seven with Brad Pitt
Larc 74in said on 8/Jul/13
He's lucky, he lost barely nothing at 76y.

Suprisingly morgan does still look like a genuine 6ft 2 man how has he not lost height yet rob? hes 76 years old i think.
[Editor Rob: I think now he has lost a bit, he could have been a fraction over 6ft 2 and now a fraction under it.]
Mr. R said on 28/Jun/13
This is right. I saw him at the Oblivion premiere.
cole said on 27/Jun/13
A genuine 189 cm man at peak, at 76 he's likely to have dropped 1 or 2 cm. With Craig Ferguson he looked roughly the same height, and in Lucky Number Slevin, he was wearing some kind of sandals, and was still a bit shorter than 189 cm barefoot Josh Hartnett. 187 cm today, 6'1.75.
Sam said on 26/Jun/13
I saw him in the late 1990s and Freeman had impeccable posture and NYC side walk advantage but managed to look close to 6'3" range to my 6'5" eyes (don't know if I was fully-grown then but pretty close). I think 6'2.5" would be a fair peak estimate for him. Bizarrely, I saw Paul Rudd (who was in the play Freeman and I were coming out of, The Last Night at Ballyhoo) moments later on the street and he looked, with a side walk disadvantage (closer to the road), around 5'8".
Silent d said on 23/Jun/13

He was 6ft2.25 peak, no way a flat 6'2, dm is onto something. And I believe Sean Connery is the oldest living person w/out a peak, and ironically he was WITOUT a doubt 6ft2.25 peak, whereas there is a chance Freeman could have hit 6'2 flat at night.

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...

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.

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.

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.
