I'm 5-11 1/2, and I had to go down to 172 [pounds]
I wanted you to see a very large, muscled man. I mean, in the book it says he's the largest man in the LAPD. I called Curtis hanson and said, 'Look, I don't know what you've seen, but it must've been smoke and mirrors, mate, 'cause I ain't that big!' I'm 5-11 1/2 and a bit. In Australia, we call that a Collingwood Six-Footer.

Honestly, if Russell is/was near 5ft11, Martin looks like a big 6ft1er. Certainly looks more believable...6ft flat equals Russell struggling with 5ft10!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jun/20
Rob, how tall do you think Russellโ€™s cricketer cousin was?

I think over 6ft personally
Editor Rob
I can see him over 6ft too
chicagoan said on 15/Jun/20
His late cousin Martin Crowe looked a legitimate 6ft guy, based on pictures with other cricketers on cricket ground (I have seen pics of Martin Crowe with Imran khan, for instance).
But if you look at Russell Crowe with Martin Crowe

I am not sure if Russell crowe is in 5ft 10 in range, the height difference looks more.
Realist said on 6/Jun/20
He always looked 5'10 to me
OriginalAnon said on 17/May/20
Probably spot on with this one. Could have been 5'11'' at some point, but I really doubt it.
berta said on 8/May/20
i think 1/4 upgrade for peak but could be this height now
Nearly 180cm guy said on 1/May/20
To say that Crowe was close to 5ft 11 just look at him next to someone whom you, Rob, met in person. Here are some photos with Crowe next to Paul Bettana from 2003: 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
Even if we assume that Bettany often has a weak posture, Crowe next to him still does not look as short as 179 cm. I think Russell in his prime was at least 5ft 10.75.

Definately half inch below his claim

@Pov sounds more reasonable as a shoe height. He's an above average guy, i think you have to be 6'0-6'0.5 in shoes to be considered tallish(6'1 in shoes generally tall, 6'2 in shoes solid tall) I can buy 5'10.75 peak for him though

5ft11 peak is distinctly possible.
pov said on 24/Mar/20
Seeing as he said 181.75cm so accurately, I would take his word for it tbh, in his peak. maybe now he has shrunk a bit to 5'10.5. I would certainly buy a 5'11 prime for him.
Cal Pest said on 18/Mar/20
I believe he's being honest heightwise. He's not the kind of actor who puts lots of money on his looks. He's more about acting skills and deep voice than anything else, not being in shape often times may contribute to misleading impressions; he's tallish.He looks a solid five eleven next to 6'2 Jackman and in terms of overall size and presence is no less than the taller Jackman. He's big with even bigger presence...
Jkiller said on 11/Mar/20
5'10 and a half is a good measurement
jackyboy said on 20/Dec/19
he look 10cm shorter.. 176-177cm
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 8/Dec/19
He looked talish in the abduction thriller 'Proof of Life'. Quite a slick little flick actually.
Nik Ashton said on 1/Dec/19
Heโ€™s a fair bit above average!
Animus said on 1/Dec/19
He was a full two inches shorter than Heath Ledger. So if Ledger was 6'0ยฝ, then 5'10ยฝ is right.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Oct/19
Near 5ft11 peak is probable but honestly he doesnโ€™t look like heโ€™s really anything
Jtm said on 3/Oct/19
What evidence? Go watch blood oath and proof. If that's 5'11 then that's the shortest 5'11 I have ever seen and again there wouldn't be so much doubt about his height if he was really 5'11. Maybe if he looked 6'0 or taller I could see but he never looks that tall and he has only been reported 5'11ish at his tallest. I would give him 5'9.5-5'9.75 peak and 5'9-5'9.25 now.
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 27/Sep/19
I think he hit 180. 5ft 10.75 fairest for a peak 20s Crowe, Rob? I think it'd be the best compromise looking at evidence.
Rising174cm said on 11/Sep/19
I was surprised to see Russell's recent appearance on Stephen Colbert's show. Check out the greeting: Click Here Crowe looked shorter than 5'10.5" Colbert! I don't doubt Crowe was around 5'10.5", but could worsening posture and his weight gain have caused him to shrink now that he's about 55 years old? Like George Clooney, he seems like a guy who peaked at 5'10.5", but now might be 5'10" flat or 5'10.25".
Editor Rob
Crowe could be entering an age at which he might be struggling to measure his full height, whether it's a 1/4 inch loss I'm not sure...
kelly said on 2/Sep/19
I ran into Russell Crowe in an elevator in the Beverly Hills Hotel about 9 years ago after attending the Paul McCartney concert at the Hollywood Bowl. It was just Me, my wife, Russell, his two little sons (they looked about 2 and 4 at the time), and his bodyguard in the lift. I am 6'1/2" tall as recently measured in bare feet at a physical with my doctor. I can tell you that 5'10" is accurate for Mr. Crowe, maybe 5'10 1/2" as the site suggests. BTW he was cordial and friendly toward us in the elevator. Peace out
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 24/Aug/19
5ft 10.75in peak is justice for him. What do you reckon?
Lamont Cranston said on 15/Aug/19
I have no estimate, but I recently watched โ€˜Gladiatorโ€™ again, after last seeing it years ago.

I was frankly surprised how nearly everyone in the film was taller than Russel
Chris Chen said on 24/Jul/19
A classic 5'11 guy ,who is 3~4cms shorter than Ryan Gosling
berta said on 23/Jul/19
i think he was exactly 180 cm during gladiator days. and 10 seconds out of bed was the height he claims.( or been measured tht height in shoes later in the day) it seems strange to claim a exact height like tht and not been measured it. 180 cm peak 181,5 out of bed/ or in shoes and 179-180 today
Can duz said on 5/Apr/19
Probably maximum 5.11 or 180 centimeter
Ian555 said on 30/Mar/19
Rob do you think the figure of โ€œ181.75 cmโ€ Crowe gave was a shoe measurement?
Editor Rob
Barefoot I struggle to see Crowe almost 6ft, but in shoes yeah he probably is near it.
billionaireslayer said on 19/Mar/19
5'9 n half at prime
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 7/Mar/19
Reckon you could give him the 5ft 10.75in mark, Rob? I really think at peak he looked circa 180.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Jan/19
Crowe look 1.5" shorter than 6'0 Ryan Gosling.
Jtm said on 19/Jan/19
significantly shorter than hugo weaving in proof and a lot of people are saying that weaving is closer to 6'1.
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 10/Jan/19
Maybe the 5-11.5 relates to a morning measurement, Rob?? 5-10.75 could be a good fit for Crowe. Especially early on in his career, he definitely looked close. Great actor, has delivered some tour de force performances
Editor Rob
Maybe earlier in the day he once got near it and rounded up, I can see how 10.75 could fit him too.
Scott 6' said on 6/Jan/19
Iโ€™d say he was a little over 5โ€™ 11โ€ in his prime, now a little under.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Dec/18
Possibly could be 181-182cm out of bed
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 7/Oct/18
Rob, could he be one for a 5ft 10 and 5/8 or a 5ft 10.75 listing? Maybe a weak 180 or thereabouts is the fairest compromise. Early in his career he appeared a 1. 80m chap.
Editor Rob
He does have a chance of measuring in that range.
Rourke said on 24/Jul/18
Looking 179.5cm tops with 187-188cm Jackman. Wonder if Collingwood means blatantly lying
Howay Man! said on 27/Jun/18
No way is he 5' 11"!! 5'10" max. He's put on a lot of weight too which would weigh his body down.
Jtm said on 19/Jun/18
look at the third picture with snoop. he is much shorter than snoop and his footwear looks suspicious. maybe the other people you are comparing with are simply not their listed height especially 50 cent and ryan gosling. 50 cent doesn't even look 6'0.
MAD SAM said on 18/Jun/18
He has claimed 181.75 cm, I think thatโ€™s when he wakes up in the morning, but that height should come down minimum 2 cm during a normal day, or 2.5-3 cm after a really physically demanding working day so that brings the equation down to 179-180 cm, and that Russel totally is so he ainโ€™t lying his height just relinquishing his morning height ๐Ÿ˜Ž
Gracian said on 9/Jun/18
Rob, I think Russell is one of the people who most need an upgrade. He does not look much shorter than Snoop Dogg, Ryan Gosling, Henry Cavill, Hugh Jackman and Curtis Jackson 50 Cent. Here are the pictures:

Russell is just a good guy with a range of at least about 180 cm. I think I can argue even for a full 5'11" for him. Rob, will you give him an upgrade to at least 5'10.75"?
Editor Rob
There are times when I think 5ft 10.75-11 might be possible, but other times I think 179 range is more likely...I can certainly understand 5ft 11 estimates, it's what I'd say would be the top-end of what I'd try to estimate him as, probably 5ft 10.5 is near the low end.
jbaja74 said on 24/May/18
I forgot to say Robin Hood. He said he was 205 lbs for Robin Hood. Seems a bit heavier then he was in Gladiator.
jbaja74 said on 22/May/18
I would say a legit 5'10" these days. He appeared taller in Gladiator due to the filming techniques and him being leaner.
It's always being said how much weight he gained for this role and dropped weight for that role and so on.
So, does anyone know his weight for Gladiator? I am guessing 190-200. I know he stated in a interview that he weighed 205.
What do you think Rob? 5'10" and 190 for Gladiator?
Smiles03 said on 25/Apr/18
Younger 5'11 with shoes on 6'0 but now 5'10

i thin russell crowe could have gone from a legit 179 man to 178,5 man
Greg said on 5/Apr/18
I just seen an image with Leonardo Dipcaprio standing next to Russel Crowe the footwear seemed about equal, they looked close in height I think Leo either needs a downgrade or Crowe needs an upgrade to 5โ€™10.75โ€.
Terry said on 21/Mar/18
I am same height as Russel Crowe :)
even said on 14/Mar/18
after working hard for 24 hours : 5'10" , after a long sleep : 180 cm
danR22 said on 5/Mar/18

This photo, where both are wearing pretty spiffy footwear, both standinging erect, where they are the same distance from the camera, where the architectural verticals are true, ย tells me that Russell Crowe could hardly be taller than 5' 10", vs Cruise' generally agreed 5' 7ยพ".
kelly said on 14/Feb/18
I ran into Russell, along with his two little boys and his bodyguard in an elevator in the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2010 (after I saw Paul McCartney at the Hollywood Bowl). I'm 6'1" and I guessed his height at 5'10 1/2" at the time. Saw the average on this website listing him at the same and I totally agree. Russell Crowe is indeed 5'10 1/2".
Jjak said on 28/Dec/17
Just rewatched gladiator he looks weak 511 big 510.
So the listing seems fine haha he make tom cruise look puny.
James said on 12/Dec/17
Crowe is exactly 5'10", but can appear shorter due to his weight.
Liam said on 23/Nov/17
He is 53, he has probably lost some height, if say a strong 5'11 peak and 5,10.75 now
Grit said on 14/Nov/17
He's 5'11" But no more
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Nov/17
Rob, also in Cinderella Man
Editor Rob: yeah, I have to watch the descriptions, sometimes you could get carried away listing a bunch of films when it's not really needed.
Junior said on 8/Nov/17
@Slim 6

Great. He look closer to 5'10.75" and sometimes 5'10.5" in that film. Maybe 179cm is still fine.
Slim 6' said on 31/Oct/17
@junior, I suggest you watch โ€œmaster and commanderโ€.
Junior said on 30/Oct/17
I watch LA Confidential for thrice i still don't see Russell Crowe had a 1/4 on 5'10.25" Guy Pearce. They literally look the same and in opposite Guy can look that 1/4 on Russell.
Slim 6' said on 22/Oct/17
5'10.75" peak and 5'10.5" today would be a great listing for Russel Crowe.
robson said on 19/Oct/17
I know what he means. I'm in situation about as he is 2cm taller, I'm legit 181cm but always tries to look 6'0 legit

Is there anyone is this world who has exactly the same height as he/she say???
hardguy said on 9/Oct/17

Slim 6' said on 7/Oct/17
Average guess is underselling him. I do believe his stocky build does make him look much shorter than he actually is. truth is he's 5'10.5" with a chance 5'11".
Slim said on 28/Sep/17
Bobby said on 25/Sep/17
Surprised Crowe is this height, he looked 6ft in Robin Hood. He doesn't look much shorter than Hugh either. I think he was claรฎming a morning height, but then again, shrinking a full inch seems excessive for someone under 6ft tall but yeah, solid height still. He gets 5'11 from me.
Agreed man, I've competed for way too many downgrades and it's time Russ gets 5'10.75"-5'11".
Slim said on 26/Sep/17
even said on 20/Sep/17
after sleeping for 15 hours = 180 cm , after working for 20 hours = 178 cm .

Rob, hope you are well... I see mr Crowe very regularly in Woolloomooloo, Sydney... as he lives around there.

He is often in sports sneakers which are well insulated, but last time I got close to him and he appeared (unless he has lifts) 5'11" comfortably.
Funnily enough Jai Courtney was in the same pub and he is probably 184-185cm... not far off myself - very very stocky nowadays though...looked easily 100kg

Was digging through some photos of Russell, and I suppose you always have to question the footwear, but this photo stacks up better with what I saw recently

Click Here
Jani said on 20/Aug/17
He looks pretty much like 178-179cm range. Maybe 180cm peak in his younger years.
Slim 182 cm said on 4/Aug/17
Yeah, that's gotta cause bone loss for sure, in 2 years I'd give the half inch downgrade.

Btw @richard, are you @richardspain?

TBH crowes just in the 5'10 range, I agreed with big robs listing, but really, Russ McConaughey and Clooney are the same height, not sure who'd be taller by the mm. Yeah so I'd give russ 10.75 or Clooney+McConaughey the 10.5 downgrade.
Richard said on 3/Aug/17
Crowe said he smoked more than 60 cigarettes a day.
Slim 182 cm said on 29/Jul/17
Rob, let's say russ is 5'10.75 max, he started smoking as a child(no question about this) is it possible he would of grown taller if he didn't smoke?
Slim 182 cm said on 21/Jul/17
240 pounds at biggest.
even said on 17/Jul/17
hes 5'10.5" but i think hes well over 200 pounds ( 230 pounds is my guess )
Slim 181 cm said on 16/Jul/17
RichardsPain, ๐Ÿ˜Saw guy pearce recently(no bs) who's 178 max and russ is like the similar height as him, so strong 5'10 shouldn't be ruled out.
So basically Russ isn't under 178, may be 179 if he's lucky, and he most certainly isn't 180+, end of the mystery guys.
I agree with big robs listing, it's the truth, or its quarter inch away from it. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
RichardSpain said on 15/Jul/17
He looks classic guy 180cm in screen, but as we know in the real life is other history. Anyway to me he seems a good 179cm next to Jackman who is a solid 186/187 cm in this moments.
Slim 181 cm said on 13/Jul/17
Russel Crowe peak wasn't shorter than a strong 5'10.
even said on 12/Jul/17
the correct answer : 5'10.5" morning - 5'10" evening
Slim 181 cm said on 12/Jul/17
I really wonder if russ was ever a weak 5'11... he's definitely 5'10.25 might be 5'10.5 but a weak 5'11 is debatable... he did look a .5er in a beautiful mind and master and commander. 8 cm between peak Jackman and Crowe isn't impossible.
Slim 181 cm said on 5/Jul/17
There's always a possibility russel is a 180 cm guy claiming his morning height.
Meson 777 said on 3/Jul/17
I think 5ft 10 - 5ft 10.25 will be better
Slim 181 cm said on 25/Jun/17
Ummm, he's 5'10.25 at worst or 5'10.5 at best, I root for the latter.
jtm said on 10/Jun/17
He has always been struggling with 5'10. He wouldn't have been told to put his shoes back on because of his height if he was really 5'11.
Peter175 said on 9/Jun/17
Johnny a lot of that is posture. Henry cavill is standing as tall as possible with cam advantage in both pics. It's at most 2 inches in reality. He may have lost a fraction in recent years but peak I can easily see 5'10.75
Johnny said on 8/Jun/17
Peter175 said on 6/Jun/17
I think nearer 5'11. It would work better with Tom Cruise's and Henry Cavill's listings imo

@Rob which slot will you put Russell in:

A)182.5 cm/180.5 cm
B)182 cm/180 cm
C)181.5 cm/179.5 cm
D)181 cm/179 cm
E)180.5 cm/178.5 cm
F)180 cm/178 cm
G)179.5 cm/177.5 cm
Editor Rob: I think D is lowest I'd guess, I can see C as being very possible.
Greg said on 22/May/17
Looks a bit taller than Malcolm Turnbull when standing next to him, this looks spot on, peak could have been 5'11" or a half more.
delancey said on 18/May/17
I think Russell forgot to pack his lifts! Photo with 175 cm Hardy below, very similar.
At the moment I still think Crowe is somewhere within the low to mid 5'10 range, 5'11 is out of the question. But his height really does seem to fluctuate a lot...

Link: Click Here
jtm said on 8/May/17
He's clearly shorter than bale even when he's closer to the camera and looked close to ray winstone's height. Winstone could have even shrunk to 5'8.5 since he was 57. I will admit that crowe could look 5'10.5. and maybe even 5'11 but that's probably because of lifts, camera angles , and posture. I think he's really 177 cm like brad Pitt.
RisingForce said on 6/May/17
Yeah, his claim sounds more like a shoe height likely making Crowe 5'10.5" barefoot as listed so he's probably somewhere from 180-181 cm in the morning. Mike, he may look near his claim in the above photo with Jackman, but Crowe looked noticeably shorter at the Australian premiere: Click Here He looks at least 3" shorter than a 6'1.5" Jackman at the Australian premiere and with better posture, so closer to 5'10" yet he looks a solid 181 cm in the above pic. What's more bizarre is 5'8" Ben Foster in cowboy boots looking near Crowe's height: Click Here yet at the same premiere, Crowe looks somewhere around his usual 179 range with 182 cm Christian Bale. At times, he can seem like a pretty big guy around 5'11", but he was shorter than a real 5'11" like Leonardo DiCaprio. It's been a while, but I think he was a bit taller than Guy Pearce in L.A. Confidential, and Guy is a solid 5'10" himself. Rob's listing seems to add up the best, but his height is a bit all over the place. I've never completely bought that old article that mentioned Crowe wore elevator shoes at Jerry Bruckheimer's insistence, but it's not impossible he sports the occasional lift in his shoes to make him look at least a solid 5'11" guy. Though I think Ben Foster might be more a guy to watch with his shoes after seeing him measure up at least as well to Crowe as he did to Jason Statham, who could be 2" shorter than Crowe.
berta said on 5/May/17
hm 181,75 sounds mutch even for morning height. i dont think a guy like him loose more than 2 cm from out of bed to evening.
Bodie said on 29/Apr/17
He is a inch taller then tom cruise in a side by side photo cruise is 5.7 so he is not 6 foot he's not 5.9
Matt179 said on 23/Apr/17
Same height as me.

I wonder what is Weight was in Gladiator, I read 172 pounds. He look lean in that movie. Really in good shape.
Thomas Veil said on 22/Apr/17
He always seemed more like a 5'9 guy. Looked that height in L.A Confidential
Cheech said on 20/Apr/17
He's between 5'10" and 5'11". He towers over T. cruise,Kane West,and Bono.
Mike said on 19/Apr/17
Looks between 5ft 11 and 6ft with Jackman in the PR photo
KH said on 18/Apr/17
This listing seems about right. His stocky frame makes him seem possibly a little shorter then that at times. Definitely not 5'11.5 thats a shoe height or him just adding an inch of height like a lot of celebrities too. Nothing wrong with being 5'10 and a half.
jtm said on 18/Apr/17
Look at the pictures with christian bale and Ben foster. He's definitely not 5'11 range. 5'10 is the real question.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Apr/17
If he was actually 5ft11 in his prime that 181.75cm may have been an early morning measurement
Christian-196.8cm (6ft5.5)Noon said on 16/Apr/17
The 181.75cm was most likely a shoe measurement, as he's obviously not that tall barefoot.
S.J.H said on 31/Mar/17
I remember he was like 4' shorter than 6'1-1/4 listed japanese actor Etsushi Toyokawa in 1995 No Way Back

weird that he really stick to that cliam i think he out of bed really have been measured to that a couple of times and in the evening he is in the stron g179 range
Cameron said on 25/Mar/17
5'11" flat peak height maybe.
Arthur said on 24/Mar/17
WOW at his 181.75 cm claim. Rob, do you think there's ANY chance he could have measured BAREFOOT that much earlier in the day? If his pulling up this quote out of his ass, he is one filthy liar. I mean, giving even millimeter accuracy is cheeky, let alone mentioning HALF a millimeter!!!!

It's also funny he is calling 1.4 mm ''a bit'' (he is 1.4 mm over 5'11.5 as he claims). In real terms, that's actually called ''nothing''
Editor Rob: Arthur, it's certainly a very specific quote, maybe in a shoe, but barefoot I just can't see it.
MaskDeMasque said on 22/Mar/17
In "The Nice Guys" compared to Ryan Gosling he looks around 5'10.25-5. A solid 5'10 guy.

Editor Rob: Johnny, that is funny from Crowe...he's gone to 2 decimal places on it, I will mention it at the top beside his Collingwood quote, it ties in exactly to his claim of being just a bit over 5ft I congratulate him on being able to convert feet and metric fine!
Richie said on 23/Feb/17
I'm going to be a spoiler and give Crowe the benefit of the doubt, peak height was close to 6'. He edged Oliver Reed in Gladiator by 2 inches and Reed was a solid 5'10", so Crowe was definitely close to 6' during his prime. I do agree he has lost a little but is still close to 5'11" as recent photo with Hugh Jackman shows him around the 5'11" mark, with Jackman a legit 6'2".
Johnny said on 15/Feb/17
@Rob I am 5'11.25" at worst, do you think I will look taller than Russell if I stand next to him?
Editor Rob: yes Johnny, you are probably going to edge him out a little if face to face.
James said on 13/Feb/17
He's no more than 5'10". What happened to his career?
Gail said on 26/Jan/17
I don't know what made me wonder about his height. I love his acting. He has a certain charm. His demeanor reminds me of a great man I knew and miss terribly.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/17
No, in Nice Guys Crowe looked close to 5 ft 11 with Ryan Gosling, I'd say 5'10.5 is spot on, and there's a chance of 5'10.75.
Jug said on 31/Dec/16
I would say 5'10. In Gladiator, he looked 3-4 inches shorter than Djimon Hounsou. Anything above 5'10 is very unlikely.
Johnny said on 30/Dec/16
Here are a few other shots with Jackman Click Here Click Here
With Jean Dujardin Click Here Click Here
Dujardin actually looks shorter than 5'11" Brad Pitt Click Here
He seems to be 5'10.5"(179 cm) range in these shots but he looks to have less footwear than both Jackman and Dujardin.. about half inch anyway...

@Rob is the full 5'11" impossible for Russell?
Giorgi said on 22/Dec/16
There is no way a true five-eleven and a half would say the same. In reality if 5'11" guy claims anything below 6'0.5" consider you're dealing with the world's most honest man there is.

Hey, Superman - put your Clark Kent glasses back on. Crowe is easily over 5'10".
Superman said on 3/Dec/16
In the movie where Henry Cavil portrays my life "Man of Steel" you'll see Henry beside Russell, if Henry is 6'1" it looks like Russell is 5'7" - 5'8".
Superman said on 3/Dec/16
If you watch him in the movie about my life "Man of Steel" you'll see him talking right next to Henry Cavil who plays me, Henry is 6'1" be the judge?? looks like 5'7 or 5'8 to me!
newbie said on 16/Nov/16
I'd never have bought 6'0 for him, maybe fact he tends to play bulked up characters in earlier films made him look shorter so I'd buy into 5'10 maybe a touch over - I sort of see what Aza is saying about Jackman's shoes, the top lace area looks suspiciously high, as though accommodating the foot being lifted artificially higher than normal and he's definitely got a more noticeable heel so the photo with Jackman makes it hard to tell.
Aza said on 10/Nov/16
Think he's a bit under 5'10 these days. Btw Jackmans boots look a bit elevated in the pick... Maybe it's the angle shot But it looks like the shoe is too long for his feet... Maybe a sneaky insole or three !

Crowe is more like 5 9 looking 5 10 in shoes is 5 9 duh and tv so could be a weak 5 9.
He is a very good actor especially in the 90s some weak roles lately.
I guess he is the one aussie who is over listed not under down under :>.

On the bonus material for one of his films, I think it was L.A. Confidential, Crowe say he is, quote "a shade under 5'11." So 5'10 and a half sounds about right.
Editor Rob: never heard that one, he's claimed the other times to basically be a bit under six foot.

I think Crowe is a weak 5ft11 and Pearce a strong 5ft10
Sam said on 25/Apr/16
I don't think there was much between Crowe and Pearce in the scene where they face-off in the street but Crowe does edge Pearce. I understand Crowe's character in the book is supposed to be a huge guy so I'm sure they filmed him to seem bigger then reality.
Johan said on 25/Apr/16
Its interesting that you bring up lifts Rampage because I remember hearing a story about Crowe being caught with elevator shoes. He also seems abit insecure about his height in interviews as he brings it up quite often.

The story was : He was at a party and took his shoes off at the pool and apparently he was told to put them back on as it was ruining his image. I always thought he was around 5 ft 10.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Apr/16
Crowe looked near 2in taller than Pearce in L.A. Confidential but might've worn lifts to look more imposing as that cop with the anger issues

Not sure about these 5'9-ish estimates but he does look around 5'10.

he was around the same height as paddy considine in Cinderella man. I still think 5'9.5-5'10 is more realistic than 5'10.5-5'11.

hi rob is it possible he has lost height from when he was 182cm to 179 because he said he smoked from a very young age and after his school years smoked 40 cigarettes a day and 60 on bad days. He said this on a letterman show i think and do you think this could've caused height loss.
Editor Rob: not sure if he's looked much different than 15-20 years ago, but a little loss isn't impossible

Give me a break....5'6"....yea right. He does not come across like Hoffman, pacino, cruise etc because he is around minimum 5'10" where as they are around 5'6" to 5'8". 5'10" is not short considering his shoes bring him up to 5'11 to 6'...its obvious with Cruise, Hoffman, Pacino that they are below average height.
cole said on 16/Feb/15
@Editor Rob: He looks no more than 8 cm shorter than Jackman, which looks the case in other pics as well. Jackman should surely be downgraded to 187 cm before Crowe gets upgraded to 180 cm. That Crowe was near 180 cm in his prime is quite possible though, and by 50 he looks to have lost a small fraction, perhaps similarly to Clooney. Think Jackman was never over a solid 187 cm, and now by mid/late 40's looks more like a strong 186 - flat/weak 187.
bam said on 9/Feb/15

Joe said on 27/Jan/15
Russell Crowe might have been 5-11 in his prime, he was really fit in his younger years, but he has gotten fat and out of shape, and has lost height, I think he today he is slightly under 5'10". He was off to a good start in films like Gladiator but now he is fat old man, I think my best guess as to his height is that he is 5'9.5", definitely not 5'11", his Man of Steel co-star Henry Cavill just towers over him, Cavill is listed as 6'1", but is really 6'0.5", even so the difference between him and Crowe is very noticeable. The only legit 5'11" actor in Hollywood is Brad Pitt, and interestingly Pitt never claims to be taller than that.

Russell Crowe is no way 6 feet tall, I think he may have been 5-11 in his prime, but my most educated guess is that he is 5-10 or slightly less, but I think 5-10 is about right, standing next to Christian Bale who is 6 foot even, Bale seems to be about 2 inches taller. Also Crowe looks much smaller than Hugh Jackman who is 6-2.
Big T said on 13/Nov/14
Click Here

This is Crowe next to 5'10 1/2" listed Andrew Johns- and Johns is not some obscure ex-player, he is one of the best ever. Again, for whatever reason Crowe looks 6 foot around rugby league players...either they're all overlisted by 2 inches or Crowe is a bit taller than listed here.
Big T said on 13/Nov/14
A lot of people seem to think he's shorter, but I think if anything he's taller. Just look at the size of him next to Joel Madden!

Actually, Russell generally looks a lot taller than listed when he is with his South Sydney Rabbitohs players. Look at him next to 6'5" Sam Burgess or 5'8 1/2" Issac Luke. He looks more like 6 foot.

Joe said on 6/Nov/14
No actor that is 5-11 in reality will actually say they are 5-11. I think Crow is about 5-9 because he seems to stand at the same height as Joseph Gordon Levitt, who is 5-9. There are many examples of so called 5-11 actors who are really shorter. George Clooney is one such actor, in Batman and Robin he stood roughly at equal height as 5-9 Chris O'Donnell, and he was 36 at the time.

The 5ยด9 claims are rubbish. At the end of the 2014 NRL Grand Final he stood next to League great, Andrew Johns and had an inch on him. Johns is listed at 5ยด11 but I suspect his height has always been inflated by an inch. That puts Crowe at bang on 5ยด11.

Anything under 5'10 for Crowe is madness
Joe said on 23/Sep/14
Many actors who claim they are 5-11 are usually much shorter. No one says they are 5-11 or 5-11 and a half. He is probably 5-9 or maybe 5-10. Just about all men upgrade their heights, just like most women downgrade their weight. Someone who says there are 6 foot are usually 5-11, 6-1 and they are usually 6 foot even. Its an exaggeration that is considered acceptable, after all its only a inch but in Crowe's case more like two, Crowe is an action star, most action stars are around 6 feet tall or a little higher.
PLB said on 13/Sep/14
In a sense Russell Crowe is the shortest man in films. When someone like Robert Downey is too short for the role he's playing, they just go the obvious tricks: elevator shoes, short co-stars, tricky camera angles, etc.

But when Crowe was cast in the quasi-historical 'Cinderella Man' they had to radically alter the plot and the actual history to accommodate their stumpy little star. The real Braddock was six two and a half. That's a fairly typical height for a heavyweight boxer. But Crowe is probably only about five seven. So they changed the plot around to make it a David versus Goliath story. In the movie Baer is supposed to be a killer giant at least 6'4" and nasty. He was portrayed as the only man big enough to tackle Primo Carnera.

In fact Baer was anything but a villain. He was a clown in the ring and he emphasized his Jewish heritage as a way to show his contempt for the Nazis. He was a prince of a fellow, although not much of a boxer. But the most important fact that the movie got wrong was that he was also 6'2.5".

Braddock and Baer were exactly the same size. Watch the fight films on YouTube - it's hard to tell them apart they are very, very similar in height and weight. Both also have lousy boxing skills. Baer telegraphs everything and lets his guard drop. Braddock throws looping rights like an amateur. Neither man was very skilled but Braddock trained harder. He was also braver. Braddock was hitting Baer with arthritic hands. The two men were a closely matched in height.

But Ron Howard the director was stuck with short Russell Crowe, so he had to turn a real event into a whole other storyline.

I've not - like some here - personally met Russell Crowe. It wouldn't matter much. At 6'4" I'm too tall to estimate the heights of guys who are 5'7" or so. Why do I think he's 5'7"? Because he is almost always the shortest man in the picture. Average American men are about 5'9". If he were really 5'10.5" he would typically be the biggest man in a scene - but he isn't. He's not crazy short like Al Pacino but he's definitely shorter than average. He looks about 5'7" to me, maybe 5'8".

A friend of mine audition for Master and Commander as did many of his sailing friends from the Santa Cruz, CA area. They were all in the 6ft range. They were all turned away and told since the star, Crowe, was only around 5'6" they had to find shorter sailors to make him look tall. Even in the scene from that movie where he's teaching the midshipmen(young kids) he's only slightly taller them.

He's not under 5'10" c'mon. I'm undecided if he was taller than Guy Pearce in LA Confidential, in some scenes he looked taller, in others Pearce looked taller, they looked pretty similar I think though. Crowe looks 5'10.5-5'11" to me. I could buy a full 5'11 but no more.

He's probably a bit sensitive about his height implying himself that he's nearly 6'0. That's rubbish he's around 5'10, camera angles and thick soles have helped him in film.

He looked 6ft in Gladiators.

Rob, is 180cm possible for Crowe?

He must be taller than this, in Gladiator he had a good 2 inches on 5'11 Oliver Reed and is a similar height to 6'1 Richard Harris. 184 is more likely."

Ludicrous. And Oliver Reed's stature looks to have declined by 2+ inches from his alleged peak. Crowe is certainly no taller than 5'11" and that's a fact.

Nice pic Arch!

Weird, he actually does looks 6ft1 if Bettany is 6ft3.5.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Aug/13
He also looked a strong 6' weak 6'1" next to Paul Bettany in Master and Commander Click Here was about the difference in the film too. Now if Bettany is 6'3.5" and Crowe is only 5'10 and a half he must surely have borrowed footwear from Sly's wardrobe.... To me he looks around 185 in that pic if Bettany is 192cm.

I was watching Gladiator yesterday and they made him look at least 6 ft in it. They altered the angles I think to make the height difference between him and Ralph Moeller seem less.

I'd peg him as a 5'10 flat guy, might be the weight that makes him drop posture though.
183CM said on 26/Jul/13
He looks taller than 179cm... I mean, Michael Shannon is 1,90 or even more. Look both of them in Man of Steel. He must be taller

I'd guess the guy on the left was near 6'6".
[Editor Rob: in that shot he looks near that mark]

Rob how tall is the guy on the left?
bodwaya said on 14/Jul/13
in beautiful mind he edged ed harris who is 5 foot 9
Rey said on 7/Jul/13
When he said I over 5'10"--he probably meant with his shoes on! He is too young to have lost height, but has gained a lot weight. I say 5'9" at best. He looked very short in "A Beautiful Mind" in many shots.
jtm said on 30/Jun/13
i've said it before and i'll say it again. he is no more than 5'10 flat.

Russell Crowe was one of the celebs who made me realize that the infinite nuances created by camera angles make it impossible to peg an actor's height
with precision while watching him in a film. Still photos are much better, but still perilously suspect where big egos pose together unless we know everyone's footwear secrets. A classic example is the ludicrous photo on the yacht where Brad Pitt makes Matt Damon and George Clooney take off their shoes. What mystified me at the time was that the "Brad Pitt is five-eleven" contingent saw
nothing suspicious about such a farcically obvious attempt to gain a height
boost. Russell Crowe, like Bruce Willis, is very tricky to judge, but neither
of them strike me after viewing numerous sources as nearly six feet tall. Why did Jerry Bruckheimer tell Crowe years ago at a pool party after he slipped out of his shoes "Put your shoes back on - you're blowing your image!" Would he have said such a thing to a man who was legitimately near 6'0"? Sometimes such anecdotes - if they are true - tell us more than a hundred photos with their
endless variations in perspective, and hence an endless capacity to deceive.
Shade under said on 19/Jun/13
Just wondering Rob what does shade under or share over mean anyways. A cousin of mine told me he was a shade under 5'10. I'm 5'9 1/2 right on the dote. Would I say I'm a shade under or is like 5'9 3/4 a shade under I'm just wondering
[Editor Rob: generally a shade is like a 1/4 inch]
Balrog said on 27/May/13
He struggles to look over 5'10'' with Bale.
Lon said on 22/May/13
In an interview during L.A. Confidential Crowe himself said, quote, "I'm a shade over five-ten."
