Russel Crowe for me is 5'11 (180cm) flat.

maybe just maybe 5'10.5 these days since he's 40 now and all these action
movies might have lost 1 cm of something. always possible.

some people lose in the 30s some in their 60s, pretty random really but always a possibility.

but i think Russel is 180cm max and 179cm being the minimum but i vote 180cm.
Melvin said on 10/Jun/07
Russell Crowe can't be over 5ft 9inches because DiCaprio was considerably taller in The Quick and the Dead. Then watch Cinderella Man and see Crowe never has more than an inch over Paul Giamati who has bad posture at 5ft 8in. Don't fall for Crowe's big footwear....he luvs the boots.
glenn said on 10/Jun/07
he is 511.5.exactly bam.i have friends that claim 5-11 and they are,but they give a 5-9ish appearence.thats why i believe stallone at 5-10.5.
bam said on 9/Jun/07
i have two friends who claim 5'11.5 without shoes, with a very stocky build, similar to Russel crowe. I found their claim laughable. I stood face to face and I (i'm 5'11.5) could not find any discernable height difference. Crowe is a hard one though. In american gangster both him and denzel washington(6ft) star. Maybe we can see if theres a discernable height difference.

I saw him in an Italian restaurant in Berlin while he was relaxing with Ralf Moeller from Gladiator.
When he walked by me i could take a look at his shoes....definetely no lifts!
I'm 5-9,I think when he is walking out of bed in the morning he is a solid 5-11 guy!

Him with 5'7.5 Ridley Scott. Not a very good pic. as Ridley has a bad posture here. But Russell seems to be standing straight. I'd say Russell looks 5"10.5 here. Roughly a 3 inch difference. He's definitely not 6 feet.

Someone wouldn't say "put your shoes on, you're killing your image" to a guy who's 5'11.5", which was apparently said to Russell Crowe by a director I think it was....
xD said on 5/May/07
Doesn't he use lifts? I think he's about 5'9" (176cm) barefoot. I thought skinny people look tall, my cousin is 5'4" an when I'm sitting down, he looks tall, but when I stand up, he's short.
Russ said on 23/Apr/07
Australian men can be quite tall, Russell Crowe is probably about average, 5'11" doesn't seem so hard to imagine.

Horse, is there anyone on this site that you don't think needs an upgrade?
Shane said on 15/Apr/07
Lots of guys with a solid build look shorter on film, especially if their legs and waist are not really lean. Michael Biehn & Russell Crowe were both taller in sand on the beach then they appear on film.
Viper said on 14/Apr/07
Crowe strikes me as a guy who's real barefoot height is around 5-8, and looks 5-10-5-11 in lifts. If hes really 5-10, then he might be the shortest looking 5-10 guy Ive ever seen physically. Shorter than Matt Damon even.
LeeM said on 9/Apr/07
Ever since he took over the South Sydney Rabbitohs Rugby League club, hes actually gotten shorter!
The Horse of FUNK said on 29/Mar/07
True, MJ, I believe he's a solid 181cm. I would argue for a full 5'11.5", but that may be pushing it. I'm not sure why he hasn't been upgraded to at least 5'11", as he's probably being sold short by about an inch.
MJ said on 23/Mar/07
I just saw LA Confidential again, and he looked no more than half an inch shorter than six foot David Strathairn.
The Horse of FUNK said on 16/Mar/07
I agree he normally gives the appearance of being shorter in film, but it's mostly due to his stocky build and the fact that he doesn't seem too concerned about his height (slouching). Watch him in Gladiator where he wears mere sandals quite a few times. Can't be any less than 5'10" or 5'10.5".
busybee527 said on 16/Mar/07
Just saw the movie "Proof" on cable. Granted, he was much younger but didn't look very tall in any of the shots.
OutBenchThis said on 16/Mar/07
Maybe he suffers from pacific shrink then? If any aussie 'baller fans know its a common problem for many US imports to Oz..haha. 5'10" in the US 5'9.5" here (AU)..i always thought his ego got bigger when he headed to the states..
glenn said on 15/Mar/07
i stood next to the guy many times he isnt smaller than 5-10.ill settle with 5-10.
OutBenchThis said on 14/Mar/07
Glenn, I stood next to the guy. He was 5'9.5" but he wasn't in the 5'10-5'11" range. Maybe descent shoes with a big heel may give boost his height but (barefoot) i'd say between 5'9.5"
Misha said on 14/Mar/07
I'm feeling a little crowded in on Crowe, and so will assign him 5'10.5 on a tentative basis. I believe you, Glenn - this is the kind of thing you said on Stallone that made me raise his estimate. But I still want to do more research and will report back on my findings. Until then!
glenn said on 12/Mar/07
i dont think 6ft is nonsense.5-11.5 is very is 5-10.its an inch and a half difference.again,i saw him at 6ft,so how is that nonsense? in low cut casuals.
MOF said on 12/Mar/07
It's hard to imagine Crowe being less than 5'9", but I agree that he is not above 5'11". Until some hard facts are presented I say that 5'10" is reasonable for now...
MHouillon said on 12/Mar/07
183cm (6ft)is simply nonsense, 178cm (5'10") is dead on.
glenn said on 11/Mar/07
people underestimate and overestimate.i saw russell at 6ft.therefore he cant be smaller than 5-10.he was couple inches taller than 5-9 ed harris in beautiful mind.
Gotxo said on 11/Mar/07
Yes the film it's very good, is their problem if some people try to see it as an historical film, wich it is not. It's a great epic film.
I wouldn't blame Crowe, he's bound to his role of rough guy. He should appear as imposing, add that to the fact that Hollywood imposes "per se" a height scale system.
To me he really looks in the 5'10" range, give or take a cm.
misha said on 11/Mar/07
Also, for a star of his magnitude, there are very few photographs of Russell Crowe in the company of others whose heights are more or less agreed on - and this "comparison standard" is what we must use for our height estimates because
barefoot photos are so rare. Anyone out there have any photos of Russell Crowe?
I'd be happy to raise my height estimate for this gifted actor, but many scenes
in "Gladiator" make me think he's nowhere near 5'10". I want to try to keep my posts shorter, and will look at his "body indicators" in "Gladiator" later - some might find it interesting. I just read the script all the way through last
night - it is a masterpiece, and what a film Ridley Scott turned that script into! What outstanding performances! Crowe's and everyone else's were beyond praise, with virtuoso "sunset" performaces by Oliver Reed and Richard Harris. This is a writer's prejudice showing, but a great script brings out great performances every time almost without exception.
Ed said on 11/Mar/07
Misha, great point!
KT said on 10/Mar/07
Russell Crowe isn't 181 cm. Ridley Scott himself is around 5'7". So to him, 5'10 could easily be mistaken for six feet. Personally, I've never seen Crowe look really tall. My initial thought of him was about 5'9 1/2. But never have I seen him look 5'11.

And I haven't got the slightest clue as to Oscar De la Hoya's height.
MD said on 9/Mar/07
Yeah, the 5'8" is far-fetched.
glenn said on 9/Mar/07
i doubt he is 5-8.
MD said on 8/Mar/07
I think that de la Hoya continues to be listed at 5'10" is pretty funny. Just goes to show you how they boost heights in sports.
glenn said on 8/Mar/07
horse,there is a guy that insists oscar is 5-8 on the sly page.please repeat you said one believes me.
Robert said on 8/Mar/07
I met Russel, believe it or not, in Battery Park in New York city, about 2:00 PM in the afternoon. That was June 2005, the same day (well, it happened at 3:00 AM ) he whacked the hotel front desk clerk with the phone. Russel walked right passed me, I am 5"10, and Russel looked exactley 5'9" and I noticed he had large sole sneaks on. He sat on a park bench and I walked over to talk with him, and he was actually extremely nice. Not hot headed at all. At least at the moment.
The Horse of FUNK said on 7/Mar/07
Well Oscar de la hoya is 5'10" - 5'10.5". That would put Crow anywhere from 180 - 182cm. I believe Crowe's a legit 181cm.

And to KT, I'm 5'11.5" and virtually everybody thinks I'm 6' - 6'1" as well. But I don't see a 5'10" person being commonly mistaken for 6' or even 6'1".
KT said on 6/Mar/07
To the guy who said he looked short in Gladiator. I find that kinda funny..
In the director's commentary of the DVD, the director (Ridley Scott) said "Russell is 6'1 is he not?" The other guy said "I'm not sure". Then Ridley said "yeah, he's 6 feet".
Now I don't think he's 6 feet at all. He looked at least 3 inches shorter than
Djimon Hounsou (who's 6'2). But for the director of Gladiator to think he's 6'1 does say something. I think 5-10.5 is the right listing
Editor Rob said on 5/Mar/07
I hadn't seen stomper for a decade, but I just watched it recently and beside jackie mackenzie I wouldn't argue much under 5ft 11 if any...he was a relative nobody then and if he's packing heat in his footwear in that flick I'd be shocked...

jon crow said on 3/Mar/07
ive met him hes 5'8'' he wore very thick healed shoes
glenn said on 23/Feb/07
i met him way is he 5-9.he is 5-10 minimum.saw him look 6ft once.
Anonymous said on 23/Feb/07
In Gladiator, he looked short compared to everyone else. Unless everyone else in that movie is pushing 6 feet, then I'd say he's 5'9.
MOF said on 15/Feb/07
177cm is 5'9.5" or 5'9.75" and not 5'9".
OutBenchThis said on 3/Feb/07
He is 5'9". His band has toured here (GC, Australia) afew times and he always has a drink at the bar with the guys before the show, which is where I had the chance to speak to him and ask for an autograph. He just had sneakers on but I'm certain, without shoes on the guy is 177cm. Another big headed actor who seems to fool people with his height.
The Horse of FUNK said on 27/Jan/07
Amazing logic you have there, Anonymous.
Anonymous said on 23/Jan/07
if glen says hes looked 5'10-6' then he's 5'10
Glenn said on 12/Jan/07
He had sneakers and low cut casuals everytime I met him.yes,the moon landings were faked.
Mr Mayfair said on 12/Jan/07
Mr Crowe may look 5.11 but I reckon he would only actually measure that wearing high heels...
Now I thought those Moon landings were done in a studio!
Glenn said on 12/Jan/07
No way 5-8.I saw him look 6ft and he is around the height he claims.
Leung said on 11/Jan/07
He looked 5’11” when I met him.
The Horse of FUNK said on 10/Jan/07
5'8" for Crowe? Did you know we never landed on the moon, too?
Mr Mayfair said on 10/Jan/07
Well, his agent used to say "he is nearly 6 foot", then it was 5.11 now it's 5.8 which is what I now believe to be the truth.
Editor Rob said on 28/Dec/06
I seen his claim as far back as a 1997 newspaper aswell, to be fair, he has stuck to his guns from then, "I'm 5-11 1/2 and a bit. In Australia, we call that a Collingwood Six-Footer"
The Horse of FUNK said on 23/Dec/06
Heath's a solid 6'1 and I see around 1.5" difference there between Heath and Crowe. At least give Crowe 180 or 181cm.
The Horse of FUNK said on 12/Dec/06
Usually looks 5'11 to me. If Glenn says he's always 5'10 - 6', then 5'11 must be right. Besides, he did look about 181cm in Gladiator. I guess the reasoning behind those who claim he's 5'10 and even the absurd 5'8 is due to the size of the rest of the cast in Gladiator (lots of very big guys). He also has about 4 inches on Meg Ryan who is likely somewhere around 5'7 - 5'8.
Glenn said on 8/Dec/06
Yeah,Ive seen him look 5-10 to 6ft.
Glenn said on 8/Dec/06
Wow.over here he signed up a storm and posed with dealers for a month.concert,events,filming.of course I wasnt there.only saw him when he was a grump.

[Editor Rob: you'd be grumpy too if you had to sail those same old oceans!]
Brad said on 8/Dec/06
5' 10". I seen him, er saw him, and his bad band at the Fox Theatre in Boulder Colorado a few years ago. He wouldn't sign for anybody but he was polite.
dmeyer said on 24/Oct/06
i met giamati he didnt seem as tall as 173 but that was a long time ago for example tom cruise looked 173-4 range probably lifts
Stef said on 12/Oct/06
I met Crowe today in Rome (Ciampino airport).

He signed me an autograph.

He looks 5'10", not more not less. Don't know about lifts though.


MOF said on 6/Oct/06
Crowe usually looks the stated height, everything from L.A Confidential, Gladiator and Master & Commander...
Glenn said on 6/Oct/06
I seen him look 5-10 to 6ft in front of my face.
Ed said on 6/Oct/06
I can't see Crowe being anything shorter than 5ft10. Rob has him at a good height. He can look close to 6ft, and in Gladiator, which I haven't seen in quite sometime, wasn't he wearing sandals? He looked between 5ft11 and 6ft in that movie.
Aussie Bloke said on 6/Oct/06
NO WAY IN HELL IS THIS HEIGHT ACCURATE!!!! Standing next to Eddie Mcguire (lame footy show host) who is right on 5ft7, THERE WAS NO OBVIOUS DIFFERENCE AT ALL! He would have to be 5f8 at the absolute MAXIMUM! CASE CLOSED
rossi said on 18/Sep/06
i've seen a picture of russell and Ralph Moeller having fun after a party..imagine
Moeller is huge and Russell beside him is smaller but 5-11 minimum!
ralph said on 15/Sep/06
lol he always wears lifts
Skip said on 16/Jun/06
MC Fan:I really am sick of people saying that height is size! Height is a factor of size! If you are very tall and skinny then you ain't big, just a stick. Having big bones, muscle, and hands and haveing a decent height(5'10" plus) is what makes you big!
Glenn said on 4/Jun/06
Ive seen Russell look between 5-10-6ft.
Frank2 said on 4/Jun/06
But then he was about the same height as Guy Pierce and Kevin Spacey. And neither are are 5'11".

I've met Strathairn and we were about the same height. Who knows? maybe I should claim to be 6' myself. The way celebs measure themselves it would probably justify me claiming to be that tall.

Last night I ventured out to the movies with my dear wife and noticed as we stood in a very long line that I was taller than most of the people in it.
MOF said on 4/Jun/06
David Strathairn is probably 5'11 as it has been pointed out by two who have met him in person.
D. Ray Morton said on 3/Jun/06
Looks an inch shorter than 6' David Strathairn in "L.A. Confidential."
Glenn said on 23/Apr/06
Williams has looked 5-7 to me plenty of times.even rarer 5-8 once or twice.

I worked with both and know their height to be correct.

Bottom liner: Crowe is 5'10". I haven't met Crowe or even seen him in person, but the evidence speaks for itself.
Glenn said on 22/Apr/06
he doesnt pose.saw him look 6ft once,5-10 another time.
kenneth pz said on 20/Apr/06
crowe looks a solid 1.81m tall by bare foot..i can say is comfirm and accurate.
MOF said on 9/Apr/06
He looks 5'10.5 next to 5'8 Paul Giamatti in Cinderella Man.

What of Glenn? Has he not met him?
Frank P said on 6/Apr/06
oing by the movies I don't think he looks short to me. 5'10-5"11 is reasonable.
I don't recall the actress name in Gladiator with him. She is also in The Great Raid which I just saw on DVD. She seems quite tall too. She towers over most of the cast. Now in Gladiator, their characters in ancient Rome were wearing sandals not heels. Russell still had about an inch over her. So 5"11 seems a fair guess to me.
janie said on 21/Mar/06
maybe it depends on type of shoes you are wearing: could be tennis shoes, boxing gear shoes, dress shoes, boots = he is a good 5ft11" at least. I am 5ft4". have met him
fran said on 27/Feb/06
Mr. Crowe is at least 5'11"...he mentions on Inside the Actors Studio that he is is 5'11" and a bit. Seen him many times in person, private and professional business, and during workouts with no shoes. get a grip - amazing how stupid rumors go around about nothing.
jazzyjeff said on 5/Feb/06
Didn't he live in a special room (low ceiling) because of preparing for his role of a tall cop in L.A. Confidential? I heard that on a TV show. But the question is what is tall. The one says 6'4 is tall, the other one says 5'11.
elio said on 19/Jan/06
It really gets on my nerves when I hear quotes from people about 5'5" who say they were 'eye to eye' with a 5'10+ listed celebrity. Not a chance. Just what the hell is 'eye to eye' these days anyway??

Strangely enough... it seems to be mostly women who make these kind of ridiculous claims.

[Editor Rob: you got to remember that in many celebrity encounters the mind can play tricks ;=)

And the eye-levels can play even further tricks. One person lowering their gaze, the other raising the gaze can de-emphasise what the difference I understand some people saying 'eye to eye' etc]
mcfan said on 18/Jan/06
He's a solid 5'10.5-5'11. His smaller appearance is due to his large head, neck and broad shoulders. Guys with larger features tend to look shorter than what they are. He's built like Sean Penn but a couple of inches taller.
Glenn said on 3/Dec/05
I bumped into him several times.first time he looked 6 feet! second time he looked a lift guy he maybe.Im betting he is 5-10 max.5-9 minimum.more on the 5-10.
Brett said on 23/Nov/05
I spoke to a trainer who works around him, im leaving him anonymous for now, and he claims russel is under 6ft but around the 5'11" mark that he claims, he sees him in training gear, so hes obviously not going to be in lifts, and ruled out the chance of him being 5'5" ( which i know personally is absurd and stupid) as he is 5'8.5". But to list between 5'10.5" and 5'11" is fair, as Im sure for premieres he would wear chunkier shoes to hit the 5'11.5" that he claims all the time. the trainer also said that Russel is a solid guy, and carrys some muscle and bulk on him , and is nowhere near a small man. He also appears on the footy show in Australia alots, and is not more then a couple inches shorter then players like gordon tallis , and interviewers mario fenech, who are like 187cm and around 183-184 odd cm respectively ( infact is really maybe one inch max smaller then fenech if that). So atm 5'10.5 is not that unfair, but anything under 5'10 is stupid, and inaccruate, so those claiming so, stop, because your way off.
Brett said on 21/Nov/05
I cant believe you say Giamatti and Crowe are the same height in those pics. The ones Rob shoed, Crowe looks to have 3 odd inches on him, you guys are blind
Brett said on 21/Nov/05
Rob If you like I can find out exactly how tall Russel is as I know some guys who train around him at the gym, as although Ive seen him before, I have a few doubts in my mind, concerning his size. But I can get a proper answer from unbiased sources

[Editor Rob: sure...that'd be interesting.]
A-Bomb said on 4/Oct/05
Have any of you guys seeing the Australian film Romper Stomper, one of Crowes first films. There's a fairly long scene in it where he doesn't have shoes on and no camera tricks, tilts etc are used. I was surprised at how much smaller he seemed. I always had him at 5'11", but in this scene he looked about 5'9", however, I'm afraid to say no smaller than that. Check it.
CelebHeights Editor said on 23/Aug/05
From gossip newsgroup "Russell Crowe (seen him twice, he had boots with heels on both times) 5'8"-5'9" max"
Sticks said on 22/Aug/05

"I first spotted RC by his GINORMOUS mole on his cheek. He had an
assistant following him and he literally was almost running through the
lobby and avoided all eye contact, but he ran almost smack into me. He's
very very short. I'm 5'5", we were at eye level exactly with each other.
He said "Pardon me" and pretty much moved me out of his way to stand in
front of the elevator and wait. He's not that cute in person, IMO."

-someone says maybe it wasn't him-

"Cyn, it was him. We were about 6 inches away from each other eye to eye.
He said "Pardon Me," in a distinclty Australian Accent and then he was
talking to his assistant at the elevator. Definitely him. Short. Very
short. I had on very very low heals, like maybe an inch and we were eye
to eye. He had on sneakers, jeans, a pullover sweater thing and a big
old divers wrist watch. Believe me, I was the total looky-loo."
DP said on 21/Aug/05
I saw the Crowe-Cruise picture and figured someone is either wearing lifts or someone forgot his. Can't figure out which though.
Viper652 said on 20/Aug/05
5-11.5 with this lifts. :)
CelebHeights Editor said on 20/Aug/05
Crowe did actually state his height, which was on Actor's Studio. Talking in relation to LA Confidential character Bud being described as tall he said: "mate, I don't know what ya think you're gonna meet or whatever, but I'm actually not that tall, son! I'm about 5, 11 and half and a bit"
Sean said on 12/Jul/05
Editor Rob - those are publicity photos, and don't you have on your entry right above that Crowe wears elevator shoes? Again, if anybody saw that july 1 show, or watched cinderella man, they were very close to level height. they even embraced during the scene. Somebody back me up on this, who's seen the movie or leno july 1.
CoolJ said on 5/Jul/05
Renee Zellwegger is about 5'3" (says she is 5'3 even tho she is listed at 5'4 here). In those pics she has decent heels on 3" or so while Crowe and Giamatti have similar shoes on that don't really look suspect.. 1" heel maybe.

Judging from where they are standing, and how they are standing, I'd venture to say Crowe is 5'10 even. Giamatti about 5'7 1/2"
Mr. R said on 5/Jul/05
Sean, this is the best pic I have seen of Russell Crowe. I met Giamatti last year, and he is about 5'5" tall - MUCH shorter than they say he is. Therefore, unless Giamatti is wearing lifts, this makes our "Cinderella Man" about 5'8" at best.
Sean said on 4/Jul/05 giamatti 5-10 or is crowe closer to 5-8? Strange, if he does wear lifts, he's still an inch or two shorter than crowe, and in cinderella man, he's looks like giamatti's height.

Here's another appearance on leno:

while we can argue angles all day, this pic is the closest one capturing the handshake height on july 1st show.

[Editor Rob: crowe giamata press or this]
Sean said on 2/Jul/05
Also, during the tonight show, they showed a clip of Cinderella Man, a scene between Crowe and Paul Giamatti facing off; their height looked exactly the same. According to, Giamatti is 5'7.5"

[Editor Rob: Giamatti and ObiWan...this guy is a bad sloucher and pegging his actual height can lead you from 168cm up to 174cm. He can look anywhere in that range...]

raj, a policewoman? "maybe" it was perfectly planned LOL
Mr. X said on 26/Jun/05
I remember there was this full frame photo they showed on Entertainment Tonight that showed Russell standing next to Nicole Kidman, and he looked about an inch taller than Kidman. I think Crowe was wearing normal shoes in that photo, but I can't say for sure though.
CoolJ said on 16/Jun/05
He doesnt look as tall as Prince Charles in those photos. I think Mr. Crowe is in the 5'9 area.
Texie Bell said on 14/Jun/05
I think that everyone needs to leave Russell alone. He gets totally bad press for everything he does and this is even worse to diss his height. I think he is an amazing actor whether he is 5'8, 5'9 or 5'10. I don't think height is the end all be all. I've known a lot of men who thought that height would get them everywhere and it got them shown to the door.
Lmeister said on 14/Jun/05
I gotta find Russell and measure him = )Again I will comment on Gladiator. Everytime Russell is standing next to Richard Harris, Djimon Hounsou or Connie Nielsen the camera angles, sloping ground and shoes favour him. For instance when he is standing next to Richard Harris in the first battle scene the sloping ground gives him a huge advantage. While he is talking to Connie Nielsen before Marcus Aurelius(Richard Harris)is killed Russell looks at least one inch shorte than Nielsen who is wearing sandals??? In scenes with Honsou he is always standing either closer to the camera or the camera angles made so that the height difference wouldn't be so noticeable. Once he passes Honsou inside a building before their first fight and he is obviously more than 6 inhces shorter, 5 inch (12,7 cm) difference isn't still that huge, but in some scenes Honsou is towering over him...I think 5'9'' is reality for Russell...
Lmeister said on 12/Jun/05
I was watching Gladiator today and there is at least a couple of scenes where the height difference between Russell and Joaquin Phoenix is only an inch, but after certain turning point in the movie Russell magically grows at least 2 inches ain't that bizarre. Also when he is walking in crowd he seems shorter than the average I find it hard to believe that all the actors would be more than 5'10''...
Lmeister said on 10/Jun/05
I know what U mean Rob, but do u honestly think that, if he'd be 5'10'' he would say that ; )
Lmeister said on 10/Jun/05
U know Ron Howard has always been listed 5'9'' maybe he was that height when in his 20's, but he is 51 now so maybe he has lost an inch and he is a pretty bad sloucher almost as bad as Billy Bob Thornton...Here is a good pic of them in the set...,%20Russell%20(I) and what do U think about this,%20Russell%20(I)
Lmeister said on 10/Jun/05
Usually guys who are 5'10'' never say comments like this unless they are playing basketball "Being under 6 foot, I've always felt short", Russell Crowe
Russell seems to be the same height as Paul Mercurio who is 5'9'' at least according to himself

Granted, it's not the biggest picture in the world, but look close at Russell Crowe's shoes, fourth from the top/bottom:

I do not think mr. Crowe is under 5 ft 11 more likely a bit over..
But the story that he did took of some shoes at some party could be just one of those Hollywood-crap stories, but who says he is under 5 ft 11 when he TOOK or takes the shoes of.....??

Have you ever heard of Crowe wearing lifts? Well it's true. Apparently in one outing he went to, he took off his shoes, and inside them was lifts. He is 5ft 10 with lifts. Probably 5ft 8 without.

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.

Other vital statistics like weight, shoe or bra size measurements have been sourced from newspapers, books, resumes or social media.
