He doesn't look over 164cm to me. I'll say 5'4.5 closer than 5'4.75".

In any of his brilliant Tolkien offerings, there are loads of extras and Peter can be seen on these extras frequently. Yes, he does look short and it is my opinion that he would have made a better dwarf than a hobbit because of his shape!
I also enjoyed his films 'Heavenly Creatures', 'King Kong' and 'The Lovely Bones'.
I think he just tops 5ft4!

Boy I'm astonished. I thought this guy was much taller.

Didn't Jackson have a 5'5" or 5'6" listing before?...there's no question he looks really short, even next to his actors playing hobbits.

Not surprised to him listed this low. Benedict Cumberbatch towered over him at The Hobbit premiere.

Wood is probably 5'5.25 and Peter is as listed (5'4.75), so they are about a half-inch apart. Wood is closer to the camera in that shot, if you compare both of them to 5'8 Andy Serkis you'll see what I mean.

Looks 1.5-2" shorter than 5'6.5" Elijah Wood:
Though they are listed of the same height at that site. :)

There is a publicity photo where he directs 6'5" Christopher Lee in Lord of the Rings, and barely reaches to his chest. He looks like a real hobbit next to Lee.

Jackson literally looked like a Hobbit when directing Christopher Lee in Lord of the Rings.

hey rob: I am from Peru, and I don't really understand why are you so freaky out about celebrity height. I found this page by accident. I was looking James Blunt profile. I saw this page I found a comment where you say "the closer this guy is next other men, the shorter he is" or something similar. If you considerer that, you are short too (if we talk about your logic) I think you have a problem really.
[Editor Rob: when he first came on scene there weren't many pics, but then the more pics I seen the more I thought he was near 5ft 7 than what I might have originally thought - 5ft 8.]

Yes he is exactly the same height as Elijah.

he looked shorter before because she was pretty chunky. But he is the same as Elijah.

I'm 170 .end of story!!
mel said on 12/Feb/06
yes, I don't believe he is this height, he has been described numerous times as "hobbit size", he looks 5.4 and a half at the most.

I actually think that Peter Jackson is shorter than 5'6''. In every picture that I've seen of him with Elijah Wood and Sean Astin, Jackson is shorter. Astin is slightly under 5'6'', so there's some evidence of Jackson being under 5'6'', but the dead give-away is Jackson standing beside Wood. It is common knowledge that Wood is dignificantly under 5'6''...some people who have met him have even pegged him at 5'4''!!! Given this information, I think Jackson needs to be reevaluated. He could just have poor posture because of his weight, or he may be shorter than 5'6''. I think it's the latter. Look at his pictures on IMDB. There are some good ones.
