Rob, how arguable is 189cm?



I mean he did claim 6ft3 aswell as 6ft2.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't go that high for him, the more I've seen the more 6ft 2 seems ok, give or take...well, a small fraction, not half above 6ft 2.

Oh guys, the film I've just started is hilarious! It stars Rhys, who is partnered with the tiny 5ft Shirley Henderson, and his marriage proposal to her on national TV is turned down! That's how the movie opens, and the programme? The Vanessa Feltz chat show, which I remember well.

The film is 'Once Upon a Time in the Midlands', another recent Shane Meadows acquisition of mine, and also stars Robert Carlyle, Ricky Tomlinson and Kathy Burke. I can tell after a mere 15 minutes or so that I am going to love this film; with a cast like this, I don't think it's possible not to, AND it's directed by Shane, who I've really been getting into of late.

Rhys standing with his significant other, Ms Henderson, is done to comic effect, trust me on that! He is, at his enormous 6ft2, able to look at her over the fridge door, which is higher than she is! If anyone crept in and did that to me all silently, I'd probably scream! Shirley, just like Rhys, is very versatile in her profession, having proved herself an expert in serious and comedy alike.

But to see Rhys playing a bit if a prick is going to be an experience I'm not going to forget in a hurry! His love rival, or so I've read, is going to be Robert Carlyle, and he is just about as funny in this as he's ever been, with a long ponytail, which I'm finding very attractive on him, and a mouth like a sewer! He is a far more comfortable height for Shirley, who is also called Shirley in the film, but if she ends up going off with Robert, it will be on the strength of his personality; what I have seen of Rhys so far, he is lacking in that department and no amount of extra inches can compete with a good sense of humour!

Rhys gets an undisputable 6ft2.

Now back to my film! 😊📺

Look taller than Matthew Goode. 6'2 right on the guess.

Tall dude probably the same height as me and I’m 6’2” or 188 cm (Thought I was 189 but I guess not).
Bobby said on 2/Dec/17
Surprised he's this tall, Andrew Garfield didn't look much shorter than him, so I figured he was more around 6ft than 6'2.
Jeremy said on 18/Nov/17
He edged out Colin Firth in Kingsman so i would say he’s 189-190 and Firth is 187

Happy Birthday yesterday to Rhys 🎂 Ifans
50 Years Old! Congratulations! 🍻
DOB: 22nd July, 1967

188cm Tall (6ft2)

The above information was to be found amongst snippetts regarding cast members of the movie 'Little Nicky', starring Harvey Keitel as Dad, Adam Sandler as Nicky, (brother) Patricia Arquette as Valerie and Rhys Ifans as Adrian (another brother) as well as many other familiar names, including Quentin Tarrentino.
Second time seen acting together, I noticed, for Ifans and Arquette, also seen in 'Human Nature' (32cm different in height according to their charts in the write-ups.) Last week, (Tuesday), I saw Ifans on our TV screens in 'Mr Nice' with David Thewlis, taking the lead role of famous drugs baron Howard Marks.
Then, Rhys can play rather more charming parts, as in 'Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang'!
Ultimately stomach-churning was his part as a starving soldier, who steals Hannibal Lecter's baby singer and turns her into... no thanks! The less said about that the better, but remember that Hannibal was a brilliant young boy, in the books of course, and this terrible act turns his brilliance into warpedness whereafter it could have been used to benefit the future of mankind.

6ft2 for this surprisingly variable actor, who has shown us that he has the ability to play any and all sorts of parts he chooses - and darn well at that!

Solid 6'2 may even be Strong 6'2 (188/189)

Looked 189/190cm in Little Nicky though

Malnourished. LOL.. Yes he looks it at 6'2. At worse he could have dipping a fraction under
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Sep/15
That free-spirited Welsh charm will win over most broads, Arch.

I think you could argue 181cm for Hugh Grant in Notting Hill and 187-188cm for Rhys
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 25/Sep/15
He looked 187 CM with Hugh Grant. Maybe 6'1 1/2" would be a better shout?
Arch Stanton said on 1/May/15
As a mate I mean, not on a date LOL!
Arch Stanton said on 1/May/15
Judd's right he did oddly look about 6'1.25-6'1.5 with Hugh Grant. Honestly though in Dancing at Lughnasa he looks nothing under 6'2". He's such a shabby looking bloke LOL but he's got real charisma, he's got that thing which women find sexy I think despite not being dark and handsome or whatever. He'd be fun to go out on the town with I think.
Arch Stanton said on 1/May/15
Rob can you add a photo and Twin Town, Kevin and Perry Go Large, Elizabeth: The Golden Age
and Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang? In Dancing at Lughnasa actually looks 6'2.5.
Judd said on 12/Oct/14
6'1.25" is spot on. In notting hill there're a couple of scenes where he was barefeet and Hugh grant with shoes on. If Hugh is 5'10.5-11" with dress shoes maybe reach 5'11.5" and Rhys was a bit taller but not 2,5"...
billy said on 30/May/14
6 ft 1.5
James B said on 15/Mar/14
This what a legit 6'2 guy should generally look like 6'0-6'1 guys make it seem not that tall by claiming it.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Feb/14
Oh yeah he generally easily looks it, but Hugh Grant looked surprisingly tall next to him.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/14
There is also a barefoot scene in which the press arrive at Hugh Grant's house and he's briefly stood next to Rhys Ifans and both are barefoot and Ifans really doesn't look quite 3 inches taller, more 2-2.5. He's a really skinny guy though and looks pretty lanky.
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/14
Rob in Notting Hill he's barefoot and Hugh Grant in shoes and he only looks about 1.5 inches taller.Looks more 6'1" range barefoot next to Grant who'd be about 6 ft in shoes right? He looks pretty tall in photographs though, I wouldn't expect him to measure under 6'2 would you? He really doesn't quite look it next to Hugh Grant though.
[Editor Rob: not watched it for a long while, but generally Rhys does look a 6ft 2 guy. Might not have the greatest posture at times though...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Oct/13
6ft2-3, IMO.
avi said on 23/Jun/13
looks 6'3 but not quite. hes a bit shorter than strong 6'2.5 David Thewlis. so 6'2 is ok for this guy. unless he is under and is just very skinny.
Late said on 9/Feb/13
I think he's easily 188cm. Maybe it's his body shape, but I think he could be more.
Watching him in Mr. Nice, he's a full head over most other actors. Very much stand out tall, unless they've been creative with the casting to achieve this effect.
If it was claimed that he was 6'3 - 6'4 I wouldn't dispute it.
188cm is an absolute minimum night height, in my opinion.

Looked 6f2 next to weak 5f11 A.Garfield.
Rikashiku said on 14/Jan/12
I thought he was 6'4" in all the films I've seen him in. He's taller than Sam Jackson.
Shaun said on 29/Sep/11
Does look like a legit 6'2", a little over an inch shorter than 6'3.25" David Thewlis

He towers over Ben Still in Greenburg.

On the filmmaker commentary of little nicky they say Rhys is 6'5"
Doug said on 18/Apr/09
A legit 6'2" but looks lanky and gangly.
Daii said on 23/Nov/08
Him and his brother Llyr in Twin Town both looked 6'1 to me, but 6'2 is probably right.
nathan case said on 27/Feb/07

Could he be "downplaying" his height? Too tall actors do this to increase the chances of casting in films. Stars like Hugh Jackman sometimes downplay their height...

"I mean, only in Australia would they give a six-foot-three, gangly, clumsy Welshman the chance to get the girl"
