Rob, he could be 6'1 1/4?
Colberto said on 15/Mar/19
Hey rob what do you reckon he walks around at, like not walking around as if you were about to be measured?
Editor Rob
Sometimes with big heels between 6ft 1.5 to 2 he might seem to people, but at times I think in normal sneakers he doesn't seem much over 6ft 1.
Colberto said on 12/Nov/18
Hey rob could me and him be height twins?
For the last few months I’ve been measured at 6ft 1.5in at doctors. Decent 186.5cm ranger. The two best figures for me are 6ft1.25in and 6ft1.5in
My average measurement for this year is 186.29cm.
Last month I was measured 6ft1.5in by the doctor.
Editor Rob
Yes you might find you are in a similar range to Brand.
Colberto said on 16/Oct/18
Is this more of an optimistic solid lunch range listing like top end range rob?
If you were to measure him end of day before bed on your stadiometer

A 6’1”

B 6’1 1/8”

C 6’1¼”

D 6’1 3/8”

E 6’1 ½”

F 6’1 5/8”

G 6’1 ¾”

H 6’1 7/8”

I 6’2”
Colberto said on 5/Sep/18
Hey rob, I looked at your listing for Tom Welling and you said 6ft2.5in is a lunch range for him and after a long day he'd be in the 6ft2 to 2.25in range. Is this the same principle with Russell but with 6ft1. Meaning he can look all the way up to the 6ft1.5in mark and that's a lunch range. But the highest you'd say is that listing but wouldn't go less than 6ft1in. Like Adam Driver is your 6'2 and an eighth listing but average vote is 6'2.4". Closer to 6ft2.5in than Russell is to 6ft1.5in
Editor Rob
Well, Welling might fall a little under 2.5, how much is harder to say (1/8th, 1/4?), but I think at lunch time he looked like a guy who might measure 6ft 2.5 (knowing I am down near my low as I'm up 6am and out and about by 7.30am).

I think Russell has rarely looked less than 6ft 1, moreso above it, hence 6ft 1.25 or 1.5 could be argued for him.
Colberto said on 29/Jul/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8
My orthotics add a touch over a cm. Like 3/8" I think dangerously close to 1/2" so I think official thickness is 7/16". We're really splitting hairs by doing so but it's not the full half inch and it's not as low as 3/8". Sorry for the late reply. I try not to comment too much because if I do rob won't add some and I don't want to give him a hard time. @Rob I gave you an idea of how much orthotics add for height. So without the orthotics I'm still in the 6ft3.5in-6ft4in range. Just under 6ft4in without the orthotics.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Jul/18
@Colberto

How thick are your orthotics?
Colberto said on 24/Jul/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8
Yes I have I measured myself end of the day in my boots on 3 of my stadiometers. They all said 6'4". I could get a hair over. Just the heels itself are 2" so there's going to be a difference in where my foot goes and the top of my heel.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Jul/18
@Colberto

Only reason why you managed to be 6'4" in your boots is because you're wearing orthotics. And btw, have you ever measured yourself while wearing those boots? You can't know for sure that you're 6'4" until you measure your height in them.
Colberto said on 23/Jul/18
Hey rob do you think he's the same range as challenger 2. Closer to his range than challenger 8.
Editor Rob
Not seen challenger 2 for a while, but a decent 186 range for Brand is possible, I wouldn't go under that.
Colberto said on 21/Jul/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8
I'm around 186-186.5cm. I've managed an almost 6'2" measurement/ Just the heels of my Carolina boots are 2" and I wear orthotics. I posed with a kid who says he measured 6'3 1/2" and he was in sandals like an inch thick and I had an inch on him. Somehow I have an edge on him. I posed with a guy who claimed 6'4" and somehow had half an inch on him. It is possible Christian. I've managed a comfortable 6'4" in my Carolinas.

@ Nik - Yes, long LIGHT brown hair, not light enough to be blond, but long enough to be long, though not as long as it actually is in reality!
Nik said on 30/Jun/18
@ Sandy Cowell - It is! The way I blundered along until I finally realised he had long brown hair!

What is clear though is that Russell is 6'1,5", and finally the fact that Russell in your dream had long brown hair!
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Jun/18
@ Nik - That is indeed worthy of a giggle! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jun/18
Gilberto that is a very precise range. Honestly they could all be argued
Colberto said on 27/Jun/18
A 187
B 186.75
C 186.5
D 186.25
E 186
My guess D or E
Anywhere around 186-186.5
Nik said on 21/Jun/18
@ Sandy Cowell - And I thought you were saying that he had long blond, hair! Then I thought he had short blond hair after my original faux pas, now I finally know that his hair was shorter and light brown, but long and light brown! Ha ha!

This cheeky shorter guy with long brown hair can have 6'1.5"! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚!
Nik said on 21/Jun/18
@ Sandy Cowell - Absolutely! The partners of the people involved in these encounters end up badly hurt and if they have children they too have to suffer the consequences of infedility. When people are thinking of cheating on their partner they should consider not only their own partner but everyone else who is affected, and that includes people in the life of the person they are having their encounter with. So many people get hurt and as you rightfully said, the results of infedility can be children growing up not knowing who their real fathers are. Sadly the results of infedility, or even flirting, can also be people being seriously attacked so surely many people need to be a lot more responsible about what they are doing. It boils down to respecting other people and their feelings.
Sandy Cowell said on 21/Jun/18
@ Nik - In my recent dream, Russell's hair wasn't short, just shortER and light brown in colour! His hair is very long in real life, so a few inches off the length would still denote long hair!
It's his HEIGHT that was notably shorter! Other than that, it was him all over, and as cheeky as ever! πŸ’‡
so said on 20/Jun/18
Has he ever mentioned his height????
Nik said on 19/Jun/18
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜¬πŸ€•. Fault Report! πŸ€•πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚

What I meant was shorter chap with short light hair!
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Jun/18
@ Nik - I have since given my height guess of 6ft 1.5.

I absolutely abhor the results of infidelity! Apart from breaking hearts, you get children growing up not knowing who their real fathers are and even violence can be the result when a jealous partner is crossed. The worst case I have been privy to was a near-fatal stabbing back in the 80's - and the recipient of that stabbing was merely flirting. The woman's partner read more into it. The victim was even slashed across the face as well as various parts of his body. I went to see him in hospital and he was in a right sorry state. He was one of my then boyfriend's (the one who died) lodgers.

He had a thing for tall women, the woman being fought over being very tall, but he was a compulsive flirt! He even tried to flirt with me, having said that I was much too short and lean for his liking!
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Jun/18
🐧 Correction Time! 🐧

That should have read '...A right randy bugger!'

Russell can have 6ft1.5 today!
Nik said on 17/Jun/18
@ Sandy Cowell - Hi!

I like your values in terms of one-off encounters and your reasons for not going in for them, it is refreshing to hear this and a great example for everyone to follow, not that I was ever in doubt over your mindset!

As a man I have no problem in saying that nothing like that has ever appealed to me!

I never get how a shorter height could put anyone off being attracted to a man, and I am quite happy to be in the middle! Being tall is a minority thing and I would hope that it is not something yearned for too much amongst other men! We should all realise that all heights have appeal in different ways amongst both genders and the world would be better if this was celebrated without angst.

This morning Russell gets a no height guess from me too, the shorter chap with long, light hair!
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Jun/18
@ Nik - Russell has the reputation of being right randy bugger! Now that came out in my dream, but his hair colour was lighter and he was MUCH shorter!

Not that the shorter height would put me off! What did put me right off was the very thought of a one-off! I don't go in for them! Too many people get hurt! Besides, I like Katy Perry, his ex-wife, and I love my partner! One-offs don't appeal to me even in my dreams, though there have been exceptions! If you're going to do it, that's one place where you won't land yourself in the brown stuff!

Today I will offer Russell no height guess and that is because I have a film of his to watch! Writing this has been the prompt! I bought the film because Mila from 'Black Swan' is in it and I like her! It's called 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall'.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 13/Jun/18
@Colberto

Sorry but your story is BS. A 186cm guy isn't gonna be 6'4" in boots. No boots are gonna give almost 3 inches unless they're platform boots or you wear lifts. Even the thickest logger boots give 2 inches at the most.
Colberto said on 11/Jun/18
Hey rob would I be similar to him. I measure at a low 186cm. A flat 6'1" is unlikely for me I'm fractionally over. I can pull off a hair under 6'2" I've been measured at that. 6'1 1/2" was a measurement I got 3x I usually get 6'1 1/4" or 1/2". I wear big heels and boots. I edge out 6'2" maybe 6'3" guys shorter than someone who's 6'3 1/2" when I'm wearing boots. When me and a guy who's 6'5" and I'm wearing boots I was told we looked similar hard to tell the difference like a couple inches maybe 3. I'm 6'4" in boots. When I've worn regular shoes I've looked closer to a 6'2 1/2" guy than he did with Hugh Laurie. Dangerously close. Would you say we're very similar. Someone who says they're 5'8 1/2" is an inch under my eye level in regular footwear. In flats with the other man possibly having a footwear advantage a 5'10" range guy came up to my eyebrows in a picture. I seem to edge out guys who claim 6'1". Someone who's 5'9 1/2" looks straight at lips and someone who claims 6'1" looks at my nose while my eyes are up to his eyebrows.
Editor Rob
With solid boots and good posture I'm sure other folk might guess you as 6ft 2, a bit like how Russell probably gets seen as that in person by many.
Colberto said on 1/Jun/18
Hey rob, I saw him on SNL in regular shoes. It looks like he's around 186-186.5cm. He looks like he'd lean closer to 6'1" than 6'2". Rob I am in the 6'1 1/2" range and I had a picture with a guy who's 6'2 1/2" and it's difficult to tell the difference between us. Well the difference between me and him is closer to than that of him when he was posing with Hugh Laurie who's 6'2 1/4". He looks more of a case of being 186cm range.
Editor Rob
With hair and boots, Brand at times pulls off quite a tall 6ft 2 look, but I think barefoot a flat 6ft 1 seems unlikely...how much over it is debatable.
Francis94 said on 31/May/18
heightchecker34 Taller than 8/10 guys in a room?! I'm 5'11 and am normally taller than 8/10 people in a room... Anyway, I think this is a fair estimate for Russell, Rob! He does look a lot taller at times but I think its due to footwear.
Nik said on 16/May/18
@ Sandy Cowell - He didn't ask did he? I never do any "asking" in my dreams and I dream of people a lot, men and women, but I enjoy the dreams and the company of the people in my dreams! However I am sure you will let Russell off as it was only a dream!

He gets 6'1.5"!
Sandy Cowell said on 15/May/18
One side effect of immersing yourself in the world of celebs is that you start dreaming about them!

Last night I dreamt about Russell Brand! He was a whole lot shorter in my dream, about 5ft6 I'd say, and his long hair was lighter in colour! By the way, I said "No!"

Another celebrity was also in my dream! It was Linda Henry, who plays Shirley Carter in 'EastEnders'. When I told her I declined Russell's offer, she reckoned I needed my head examined!

Russell gets an unfictitious 6ft1.5!
Colberto said on 5/May/18
Hey rob I'm sorry for spamming but I have a fixation with russell brand. Is this a top end range for him this listing?
Editor Rob
I can see how some people estimate him as nearer 6ft 2...I'm not as convinced, though I suppose almost 6ft 2 is possible.
Colberto said on 4/May/18
Hey rob. Did you ban me? I haven't commented in months. Do you think he's the same as Colin Firth in his prime?
Editor Rob
Colberto name isn't banned.

6ft 1.5 is arguable at times for brand
heightchecker34 said on 27/Jan/18
What a quirky lad Russell is. Still can't tell if it's an act or if he is this way in real life. Anyhow, I thought he was a flat 6'1, but seeing him next to a solid 6'2 Hugh Laurie, he is pretty close in height, so the 186-187 cm zone might be better. He is so thin and does wear a lot of heels, so upon first glance, he can nearly pull off 6'2, until you see him next to 6'3-6'4 guys, and there is too much difference. In my humble 5'9 opinion, I would LOVE to be this height. Tall enough to be with 5'7-5'8 women wearing heels, and even taller than probably 8 out 10 guys in any room.
Animus said on 6/Oct/17
Even when not wearing big boots, he seems to clear 6ft1 without much trouble. He can look taller than 6'1Β½, but I attribute it mainly to his footwear and his body type (i.e. long torso).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Sep/17
He can give a 6ft3 impression at times because of the heels.
jjj said on 23/Aug/17
My 6'4 friend met him and said he's not as tall as he thought he'd be! Apparently Russell Brand is only around 5'10 in which i laughed inside as he obviously has no perception of height. Russell is a strong 6'1 in my opinion.
Colberto said on 13/Aug/17
Hey rob, do you think he is in the same boat as me. Say he was measured inaccurately at 6'1" exactly or 1 1/4" but the headpiece just squashed his head too much. Probably same case as me when the headpiece squashed my head and I was told 6'1" exactly and another place 1 1/2". I get 1 1/2" as a common measurement at home. He has excellent posture and does indeed give the impression of being closer to 6'2" in boots. I think he was just measured inaccurately.
Editor Rob: some people when measured may have the measurer just say the closet figure, even if the person was just over it they might call out 6ft 1.

Anybody getting measured, always check yourself what the stadiometer says - do not rely on the practitioner exclusively and if you don't feel the object touching your skull, ask to push it down...

but, some people with plastic stadiometers bash the object down and bend the bit that measures slightly, so you could have a vigorous measurer who knocks a 1/4 inch off your height...I'd knock them out if they done that to me πŸ‘ŠπŸ˜‘
Colberto said on 6/Aug/17
Hey rob what do you see him measuring
A 189 187
B 188.5 186.5
C 188 186
D 187.5 185.5
E 187 185
I see B and C range for him
Editor Rob: at times he looks a comfortable B range, but I think his heels play a role in him seeming nearer 6ft 2 at times.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jul/17
I think nearer 6ft2 than 6ft1. Usually looks almost 1in taller than Jonathan Ross
Jax said on 5/Jul/17
He is between 6'1 and 6'2. Let me tell you why- I am 6'1 and my mom is 5'7. My chin is level with the top of her head. In the movie 'Get Him to the Greek' Russel co starts with Jonah Hill. Jonah Hill is supposedly 5'7, in the movie you can clearly see that Russels chin is above Jonahs head. If Jonah Hills height is accurate, then it is very possible that Russel Brand is 6'1 or taller. Plus, in all his movies he looks giant, so to call him 5'9, in my opinion, is crazy talk.
Charlie said on 1/Jul/17
He is not 6'1.5.He was 3/5 inches taller than Noel Gallagher who claimed on a talk show that he is 5'6. Russell Brand is between 5'9 to 5'9.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Mar/17
He's taller than Ross
Sandy Cowell said on 5/Mar/17
I saw Russell strolling onto see the 'Loose Women' some time back, including an extremely smitten Carol McGiffin! He towered over all of them, including 5ft9 Carol! He gets 6ft1.75 from me. I think that's realistic! If Jonathan Ross says he's 6ft1 like he is himself, that's hardly sufficient proof! Jonathan is a proud man and he prides himself on his height, so he must think "Grr with knobs on" to anyone taller than him!
They were naughty boys together those two, a while back! The school playground springs to mind!

Hey rob what height do you think he is. I think he is 6'1"-6'1 1/4".
Editor Rob: Colberto, he has typically pulled of a big strong 6ft 1 range through his life, helped at times to look near 6ft 2 with heels....although he's no Eddie Izzard.
S.J.H said on 8/Nov/16
Sometimes without heels boots he could pull impression of 6'2 but other time he look alot of a good 187ish
BilboBaggins said on 20/Oct/16
Brand is closer to 6' 2". He's a tall guy. Rarely see anyone taller than him standing beside him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Oct/16
187-188cm
Colberto said on 16/Jan/16
I think he is 186cm/6'1.25" he looks a very strong 6'1" could pass for being a weak 6'2". He doesn't look tall enough to be 6'2" but he looks over 6'1". I am a weak 6'1" and he looks like he could be 3/4 of an inch taller than 6'0.5" ME
S.J.H said on 22/Nov/15
@jack said on 15/Jul/15
He has said he is 6'1 and I doubt anyone would lie to make themselves shorter especially a man...he does wear boots all the time so he might appear taller

Jack, the perspective of men height are mostly rounded up their height not quite round down. There is no way most people lie to make themselve short. Yes but very rare and Russell brand does look 6'1.5 he maybe grow a half inch that he did not really measure up himself lately..

@Leonardo are you joking? he's not average size wtf
average is 175cm-178cm
tall begins at 183cm or 6'0+

he's 187cm or 6'1.5, hes solid tall.
in netherlands his height is just tall. nothing more. short side lmao you been on that dank havent ya son
Leonardo said on 22/Jan/15
187cm or 188cm? Seriously guys? Debating over 1 cm? He is just average size. Here in the Netherlands he will be even on the short side.

Robs got this right. He isn't a proper 6'2''.

He's one of those guys who are actually listed as shorter than he is. I think 187cm is righht for him
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Oct/14
Rob, is 188cm possible for Brand?
[Editor Rob: 187cm certainly is, 188? Maybe with his larger heels he can pull that off, but I'm not as sure he'd measure it barefoot.]
mr grim said on 6/Aug/14
He's 5/11 6foot Max have you saw the size of those f**king heels he wears I just saw a picture of him with Jonathan Ross and jonathan says he is 6/1 and they were the same height Jonathan was wearing normal dress shoes and Russell was wearing those heels that give him about 2 to 3 inches easy probably more anyone who says he is 6/3 or 6/4 are those people who claim to be 2 inches taller than they actually are so by saying he is taller than he is you can justify your own false claim that you are as tall as you say you are.

I don't know if anybody here has seen Rock of Ages but he looked a clear 3 inches taller than Alec Baldwin. Couldn't see his footwear but I don't think he looked under 6'2" in comparison.
George said on 30/Oct/13
Just sat with a few people and they have said in their own words "it's amazing how tall he was...he was very tall". To me that says he is around 6ft2 with big boots to add on to his already tall height. 187 lunch time is what he honestly looks to me.

Daraldo says on 10/Sep/13

That pic is damn near the smoking gun. If Jason Segel is anywhere near 6'4, even with a pavement advantage (which I do not see) Russell looks at least that tall. Honestly he looked 6'6 in that pic.

If you compare him to Jonah Hill who is allegedly 5'7 and up to his bottom lip, we are looking at very easily 8, if not 9+ inch difference. So you figure Jonah has 0.75 inches heel advantage and Russell has 2.75 inch heel advantage, the difference is 2 inches. So drop the height difference down from 9 to 7 inches and add that to 5'7, you still get 6'2 barefoot with the impression of 6'5. I'm going to say he is 6ft 2.5in barefoot morning height.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Oct/13
He looks '6'3" range next to Craig Ferguson but he was in those built up silver wonka boots so I think they'd be about the same height barefoot. Weight? I'd say around 170 pounds, he's quite broad in the shoulders, not quite the stick insect, but still a skinny guy.
Charles said on 27/Sep/13
He did say on Ellen Degeneres that he was 6'1. I can't find the clip but ellen said how tall are you? and he said i am quite long i'm 6'1.

6'1.5" works fine for him. He wears big shoes at times.

Im near 180, saw Brand and he is near 2-3 inches taller, 186.
Pierre said on 15/Sep/13
I see russell a lot and he's worn all kinds of footwear, to list him at 6ft1(185cm) is unfair because I'm 6ft4.5(194cm,195cm) and that's with flat sole footwear, and hes never too short compared to me. he's a solid 191cm for sure with his preferred boots on but I'd say 189cm would be the fairest.

I am 6'3" and 170 lbs and his build is very similar to mine. If Rob has him spot on he is probably 160 lbs.

He is at least 6'3" I have met him several times in person and have a few photos of him next to my friend who is 5'11" and he makes my friend look short by comparison Wish I knew how to post photos here

Couldn't have looked sleazier in Get Him to The Greek, but I thought he looked near 6'2" in it proportionally even accounting for boots.

Needs a downgrade. He wears Cuban boots all the time. He should appear much taller next to Alan Carr (5ft9) but doesn't even look 6ft1 in his boots. Look at the facts - he's not as tall as some here claiming 6ft2 or 3 is Impossible. Next to Alan the best he is is 6ft AND He has the shoe advantage.

It looks like Carr has got a pretty nice heel there himself.

Did you see the Justin Timberlake show? They got up and played crazy golf at the end and Ross had probably about 1.5 on him, not much. But Timberlake actually looked close to 6ft next to him, more 6' than 5'11 as I'd previously thought.
[Editor Rob: I don't watch as much chat stuff nowadays]
Arch Stanton said on 12/Mar/13
I've seen hundreds of shows over the years and Ross always seems 6'1" range to me, I don't think he'd lie about the 6'1.5" measurement though, possible he was measured at that earlier in the day when he was younger. I'm pretty sure Brand is a bit taller though.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Mar/13
Thing is, Joss Stone in heels was still shorter than J. Ross. I don't think he's under 6'1". But he could be 186cm. Russell Brand I think actually pulls off looking 6'2" a lot, regardless of heels. But he often wears big heels and still doesn't look over 6'3".5" in them. Maybe lower Ross to 6'1"? He was shorter than Jay Z and Clive Owen.
Arch Stanton said on 11/Mar/13
Rob see 0:19 onwards,Click Here his footwear doesn't look that big either. Do you think he'd be the same height as J. Ross? He seems a good inch taller even accounting for footwear
[Editor Rob: ross does look the smaller, as many have said he could be just 6ft 1 over last decade]
Silent d said on 13/Feb/13
187cm. He is deceptively tall.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Feb/13
He's taller than J. Ross, he was on the show recently and he looked a good inch taller, his footwear wasn't big either.

Either Jimmy Fallon isn't 5'11" or Russell Brand is closer to 6'3". In the picture of them in the same shot, Fallon has noticeable heels, Brand doesn't.

@ Ibrahimoviche's nose I'm also 6'1 I met im about 5 years ago when I was younger but still around 184/ 185 and he felt quiet alot taller than me. wasnt sure if he was wearing heels like he usually does, I cant remember but I remember thinking he was around 6'3 or so. he wasnt too famous back then.

pic by the Range Rover he's looking 6'3"-6'4" range in those boots. They must give him a good 2 inches. Strong 6'1" lanky build guy in big boots accounts for the 6'4" illusion he often gives off.
------------------------------------------
Two things about that picture: Brand is on the curb and the Range Rover is parked on the street. His boots look extremely suspicious and look like they have internal lifts.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Nov/12
He looks taller than me, but he wears huge heels and his lanky frame and long hair adds to the illusion.

Click Here

He looks proportionally bigger than this here. He gets a lot of "very tall" comments I've noticed. He seems to wear either flip flops or those huge heels, I'd think he was very height conscious but for the fact that he often wears flip flops in the middle of winter.
Ibrahimovich's Nose said on 24/Nov/12

Craig Ferguson professed excitedly: "You're very tall, you're much taller than I thought you'd be!" the first time Brand went on the show. They looked similar height, but Brand had a slight shoe advantage I'd say.

In a scene from "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" as they stand side by side barefoot talking to each other on the beach, Russell looked nearly as tall as 6'4" Jason Segal, which was somewhat surprising.

I think he is at least 6'1.5 when stand tall. Look 6'4 in cuban boots
Ajax said on 25/Oct/11
Well. It's just my opinion. I mean a quarter inch is almost nothing to be off by. He's definitely considered tall whatever way you would like to look at it. He could be 6'1" legit or the floors could have been uneven. I'm about 6'3" ( not sure but around this mark for sure). And he was maybe 2" shorter than me. But I just think under 6'1" is ridiculous.
J-Dog said on 25/Oct/11
Thanks for the feedback Ajax! Yeah I want to be careful not to short change and with your real-life experience and quality posts here that go back I have to definitely consider that big time. It's also cool that you saw him in white converse's as many of the pictures I have seen via google he is booted up. I think Rob really is the man as I think he is bang on right now (about many heights), and shows a high level of non-bias.
Ajax said on 20/Oct/11
@ J-Dog

He was wearing White converse which barely give him an inch. I appeared 2" taller than him and I was wearing 1" standard nikes give or take. I'm like 6'3 or maybe 6'2.75" (all though nobody really calls their height in 3/4") So I blatantly had the advantage. He could be a solid 6'1" but nothing less. That's all I'm saying but I'd still say 6'1 1/2 or 6'2" but he isn't under 6'1". That's all I"m saying.
J-Dog said on 15/Oct/11
Ajax did you look at his footwear? He usually wears Beatle Boots which are like male boots/heels combined and can have a raise inside plus a 2-inch cuban heel on them.
yeeea said on 14/Oct/11
184cm more than that is a joke, he is skinny as hell...

I saw him at fusion pizza last night. I'm 6'3" give or take

J-Dog said on 30/Aug/11
Hansen I know the interview you are speaking about, it is here watch?v=x3t4IvkxHlg

Put youtubedotcom/ in front of it. If you look at Russell Brand he is clearly wearing his signature Cuban heeled Beatle Boots, and his hair is spruced up, I still give Hasselhoff a very solid 6'4"!

By the way if you are speaking of the more recent red carpet pictures of Hasselhoff with Russell Brand (type in both names in google) There is one picture showing their lower legs/whole body and shoes in the whole shot and I would have to concur that Russell was indeed in his Cuban Beatle boots. Which have a 2" heel and elevation. Check it out here, Click Here BUT LOOK AT HASSELFHOFFS thin-sole white shoes he is wearing. They look like that have maybe .5" inch raise if that.

So let's estimate 6'4" hasselhoff is in standard thin-sole shoes, this would put him at 6'4.5" and Brand is in his Cuban Beatle Boots at 6'1" (I think he is more 184cm but I am willing and open for debate and evidence) plus 2" cuban beatle boots would put him at 6'3" (I would suspect 6'2.5" as I think he is more 184 than 186) in shoes with the hair affect (admittedly not an issue in this shot) he can look 6'3.5" to 6'4" with hair effect. That is why you will notice only a 1.5" inch difference.

Here he is on the same day next to 6'2.5" (some say 6'2" but 6'2.25" to a half is believable and likely 189CM solid) Hugh Laurie who is the type to wear normal shoes Click Here This is not the best picture you can find more on google images as Hugh may be slightly in front.

So lets say' Hugh Laurie is 6'2.5 plus 1-1.5" inch shoes which would put him at 6'3.5" to 6'4" Brand at 6'1" plus 2" Cuban heels at 6'3" ish, but I think he is more like 184cm and the Cuban's bring him to a very strong 6'2"-6'2.75". In almost every shot 9 out of 10 he looks at least around an inch shorter than Laurie even with the likely 1" heel advantage.

By the way as a I said I am open for debate and I am not Viper-Doctrine all in fun Viper :) type, I could be wrong let me know guys.
Hansen said on 18/Aug/11
i still think russell was 6ft1.75 if not hasselhoff who had 1.5in on russell might need a drop down 190(6f2-75).
guy said on 15/Aug/11
he always looked incredibly tall to me i thought he was 6'4-6'6 but looking closer and taking note of his footwear and hair hes probably closer to the 6'1-6'2 range 6'2 MAX

maybe 182?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Aug/11
187cm was closer. Rob why the downgrade?

Triplescrew said on 8/Jul/11
looked much shorter than Conan tonight with heels. 6'1.5" is an overestimation I think, I say 184cm
J-Dog said on 22/Jun/11
First time J-Dog is saying this in a long time, but DOWNGRADE NEEDED, LOL!

Again, I think people are forgetting what massive heels this guy wears, they look like they are pushing 3 inches!!!!!!!

The guy wears "Beattle Boots" (these were male high heels hoes with a cuban heel designed for the eatles originally I heard)They are male high heels, you can look it up.

The guys is likely 6'0.5" maximum (likely just 6' flat). I would put Brand at 183-184 CM MAX, LOL. The 6'1" claim cited would be a very high rounding up or the old one inch add, lol. You will notice how shorter his legs will appear

And guys please click below for the proof, most cite Katy Perry being 5'7" (many think she is 5'6" more so and the evidence shoes she also needs a downgrade) flat at the most the 5'8" claim she has is unfounded. They are both in flat shoes for once, and Brand is in Converse shoes.

With the Beetles Boots/heels and the high spiked hair, he can indeed look 6'4" to people easily.

Here is another one where Russell is in converse's these may have slightly more than the flat converses, but he point is proven.

I usually don't advocate downgrades, as you can see from my posts going back years but this one I find very hard to believe.

In Forgetting Sarah Marshall he only has maximum of his head height over 5ft1 Kristen Bell and sometimes less than that. Do the math.

6ft1.5 but 9times out of 10 he is in cowboy boots. I saw him in converse and he looked not an inch above 6ft. It would be interesting to have some photos, Rob have you ever met him. It can't be hard to meet the guy when he signs his books.

In the video nexo to Dr. House he was wearing those huge lifted shoes he commonly use, so i would say he should be about 1.82cm plus 7cm shoes (visible lifts) = 1.88cm next to 1.88cm doctor house ( 1.90cm with shoes), there is.

Hugh Laurie's official height is 6'2. In this vid Click Here they're about the same height, but Russell is wearing heels, so I think 6'1 is appropriate.
thebad7 said on 28/Mar/11
I think even 6'1" is a stretch for him. He always wears these gigantic heels. I'd bet that 6'0" flat is more accurate for him.

P.S.--Really, really rail thin guy, too. If a WIZARD OF OZ remake ever comes about, he ought to play The Scarecrow.
Blake said on 27/Mar/11
6'1 seems about right but I think everyone is forgeting the fact that he wears high heeled shoes! Saw him recently on SNL standing next to Chris Brown listed here as 6'0 and Russell appeared to be about 2inchs taller than him

Why do you put him at 1.87 if in fact is he is 1.85cm (thats his oficial height) then he would be shorter than that or just that tall but not more, he looks 1.83 to me.

Frankie Boyle said on 18/Nov/10
Russell's 6'0-6'1. He's stated in the past that he's 6'1. There is no use comparing him to others like Jonathan or Rove, he wears stack heels on all of these occasions. Frankly 6'3-6'4 is ridiculous.

Alot of people exaggerate their height,or don't realise that their height will vary by up to an inch or so depending on what time of day they get measured. I would say Russell looks a solid 6ft2 most of the time.

Hugh said on 1/Nov/08
Brand is definately taller than this.
George said on 29/Oct/08
Reason he looks like 6'3 is because the boots on his heels aren't just normal 1 - 1.5 inch heels, they're like 3 inches. And he's very thin.

he is a full 6'2" and i honestly think ross is nearly 6'1.25"

2cm + taller than J-Ro in wafer thin flip flops.

In Forgetting Sarah Marshall I thought he was like 6'4" too. Then I remembered he was standing next to a 5'1" Kristen Bell... However, I do think he may be a little bit taller than 6'1".
Complex said on 14/Oct/08
6'1, he does certainly look tall, especially next to 6'3 something Segel, but he's rake thin and legit 6'1, not fake 6'1 like most claim, which is why he looks taller. I think in Forgetting Sarah Marshall he stands about 6'1 and Segel 6'3.5, he really looks tall next to Segel but mainly because he's so thin. Keep in mind alot of guys between 5'9-5'11 look tall due to being rake thin,imagine legit 6'1 rake thin, definately gonna look tall!

Wow I thought he was like 6'5 or 6'6

6'1 is pretty normal...its tall but normal. I thought he was like super tall. Maybe its cuz he wears those ksin tight pants that make him look skinner and taller, and his hair, and kind of heeled boots like on the VMAs
