Ryan Reynolds Height
6ft 2 (188 cm)
Canadian Actor best known for roles in films like Deadpool, The Green Lantern, Safe House, The Proposal and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He once said "I'm 6' 2" with a 5' 10" face"
, "6ft 1-2"
and in a 2017 Irish Sun "I’m 6ft 3in, it’s going to look a little strange if I’m constantly being shadowed by some guy, getting bundled away. That would look a little absurd."
One of the first things that strikes you after interviewing celebrities is that everyone is way shorter than you expect them to be. That doesn't hold true with Ryan Reynolds. Tall, fit, and easy on the eyes.

He's not taller than 6-1 range. He admits it and he was listed at 6-1 everywhere in the early 2000s.
Some years ago there was a video of him with 6-2 Rock and Ryan looked MAX 6-1
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/May/19
@Canson I know, i'm just going with Standard listing here for my respect to Rob's effect.
@Accuracy He can looks it but more like a solid 190cm the more i see him.
Accuracy said on 17/Apr/19
I think he is 191cm tall.
Canson said on 24/Mar/19
@Junior; Conan is not 6’4” at a low
berta said on 23/Mar/19
closer to 189

Repeat a few times that he easily look 6'3 with 6'4 Conan O'Brien. Well we can go with Conan being 1/4 down and Ryan 1/4 under 6'3. That 6'2 1/2 Max Irons is no way taller than Ryan Reynolds and they're not the same height. Click Here
Michael Strahan is no way over 1.25" max taller than Reynolds. Some people will not admit he look 6'3 with Samuel L.Jackson in the latest movie they in it, truth still popping out they're 2 inches difference not 1". Even bad slouching still look an inch taller than 6'1 1/2 Nathan Fillion in good posture and some people still can say well he is 6'1.75-6'2 that is real bs. Honestly truth is always here Click Here
1.5" tops on Nathan. in The Hitman's Bodyguard he edge healthy 6'2 Richard E. Grant by 1" to 3cm very crystal clear. Click Here
not just this picture.

If people buy Reynolds saying that 6'1-6'2 which means 6'1 1/2 then all actors height need to shave off a full inches. Specially Ben Affleck and a peak Hugh Jackman would be 6'1 flat. There is no way Reynolds is the same height as peak Jackman and only 1/2 inch taller than him now? Rob need to look more on Reynolds height, since he daring to claim 6'3 now and 6'2 constantly from past. He should be a solid 6'2 1/2.
: this picture make him look 6'3 1/2 next to 6'1 1/2 Jackman.
: another 2" differences.

6'0 to 6'0.5", and then 6'3.5"?? Those are two doozies of guessed to be posted consecutively xD

Great Experience, even though Triple H is listed here as 6ft2
Canson said on 13/Feb/19
Reynolds is 6’1-6’2 as he admitted. Triple H is 6’1 range
Great Experience said on 13/Feb/19
Triple H looked maybe half an inch taller (6’4”) in blade trinity, which would make Ryan 6’3.5”

6 feet to 6' 1/2" tops, in bare feet. Wifey Blake, 5' 7."

Rob what do you think about this photo with him and Jackman Click Here
. Jackman has shrunk about a half inch I find it believable he was 6' 2" in his prime but if he's 6' 1 1/2" now, Reynolds looks at least 6' 2 1/2" makes you wonder if he is 6' 3".
You would think he's got to be an inch smaller there...but I would say it is tricky because Ryan might have a bit of camera advantage.

Will tj miller edge out reynolds
Canson said on 26/Jan/19
@Rising: agreed! And that made me arrive at where his claim falls. It holds water considering Denzel could be 5’11 5/8 today or even 5’11.5. Reynolds likely was measured in the afternoon though at a low and was 6’1.5-6’1.75
Canson said on 23/Jan/19
@Berta: he only has Denzel by 2”
berta said on 21/Jan/19
i can think of 2 people on the site that are 6 foot 2 range and are underlisted and that is ryan and also Adam Driver. Both do really look closer to 6`2 1/4-3/8
Racurz said on 16/Jan/19
He probably doesn’t seem like a strong 6’2 for many people because most of his height is in his legs rather then the likes of terry crews and Denzel who are pretty much well balanced when it comes to their height plus Ryan is vary skinny which might also make him not look at tall as he is I’d say a strong 6’2 but his perportions make him seem smaller
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Jan/19
@GRIT: Well, he can't actually be the strongest 6'2" guy in the world since both Terry Crews and Brett Favre were taller when they stood next to Ryan. @Canson: Based on the pic above, I probably wouldn't guess more than 2" between them considering footwear.
GRIT said on 5/Jan/19
He is the worlds strongest 6ft2 guy haha. Obiously over 6'2". 6'2.5" is my guess
Canson said on 4/Jan/19
He only is 2” taller than Denzel max
Canson said on 4/Jan/19
@Rob: I would say that he is just following the trend of Hollywood celebs who measure in shoes. He probably knows he’s 6’1/6’2 but just like on Letterman when he thought Reynolds was taller than he is, Reynolds has to like Christian mentioned about his coworker, do that to keep up with everyone else who claims shoes. Likely that he outs guys who are shorter and doesn’t want to do that. Maybe 6’1/6’2 mean 6’1.75 because he does look closer to what you have him listed here in reality at least most of the time
said on 20/Dec/18
Rob would you argue Reynolds would be in the stronger 6ft 2-2.5 category? Reynolds strikes me as one of those guys slightly more than 6’ 2”.
It's strange how he did mentione 6ft 1-2, 6ft 2 and then also quoted 6ft 3. He must know what he measured. I think many would be surprised if he was 6ft 1.5-6ft 1.75, but far fewer surprised if he came in between 6ft 2 and 2.25 range.

Really He is that tall
Canson said on 4/Dec/18
@Wayne: he looks like a 6’7” guy imho (give or take) in that pic (looks similar to my 6’7 friend from the looks of it) but in the other pic Celebheights 6’1.5 is right he does look taller

@Rising: lol only those guys in that pic above can afford $550 Giorgio Armani shoes. Not sure how many of us posters here can
TheBat said on 23/Nov/18
6'2" is perfect for Ryan. In fact he's the same height as Deadpool in the comics.
robson said on 21/Nov/18
Compared in many movies he looks for a strong 6'1 but 6'2 is probably with shoes or morning at best.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 21/Nov/18
@Wayne No, Ryan Reynold’s brother looks to be at least 6’9” there in comparison, assuming that picture isn’t hiding anything from us.

Ryan Reynolds and his brothers
The one in the background is HUGE, must be 6'7" range right ?
Ian555 said on 19/Nov/18
He kinda gives the impression that he’s slightly more than 6’ 2” or maybe 189 cm. He looks to be almost an inch and a half taller than Samuel L. Jackson who claimed to be 6’ 3” more like 6’ 2” peak and probably 6’ 1” now. Plus he’s always looked slightly taller than Hugh Jackman even when Jackman was in his 6’ 2” prime.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 18/Nov/18
He looked visibly shorter than 6'2.25" Terry Crews.

I was shocked when I saw this pic w/ "Wolverine" from May of this year... Click Here

If the footwear was equal, then we're talkin' height loss for Jackman, who just turned 50.
(I'll be posting the same thing on Jackman's page.)
berta said on 15/Nov/18
is he really shorter than liev schrieber? I think those two guys could be very close. Liev could be more legit 189 and Ryan in the almost 189 range
Rising - 174 cm
said on 13/Nov/18
@Canson: Yeah, I think it's probably a small enough footwear difference that we can keep it in mind as a possibility, but I'll agree not a certainty. I've seen others like Mario Lopez and Robert Downey Jr. wear similar designer sneakers so I figured they're far too expensive for most of us to try and find out for sure and it turns out I was right on that lol. They're $550 Giorgio Armani sneakers: Click Here
I'm still uncertain about the style of shoes Ryan is wearing, though. I agree with the range you give. In fairness to Junior and others, Ryan does look even taller than 6'2" at times and he slouches quite a bit, but his own 6'1"-6'2" claim would be completely unexplained if he were 6'2"+ and we've seen Ryan with Favre and Crews. The recent 6'3" claim surprised me since he really didn't strike me as someone who cared much about his height between his posture and the Letterman interview.
Canson said on 12/Nov/18
@Rising: I would say maybe 7/8” is a worst case but to me at least they look like they would be a full inch. I do agree tho with your estimate for the height difference between them. It’s for sure not anything near 3”. It could even be a solid 2” once all details are ironed out. You’re right that it could be just very similar footwear. Reynolds may just have 1” as well and could be 1/8” like you said. You brought up a very solid point! Reynolds’s hair is longer and may be what added to Junior’s perception of closer to 3”. Reynolds can strike me as a 6’2” guy most of the time but I would say if he’s under it is somewhere between 6’1.5 and 6’2” 6’1.5 is about as low as I could buy. I too doubt he’s only a flat 6’1” though.
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Nov/18
@Canson: Denzel's sneakers look more like 0.7" range to me, at least I believe Rob has said that style only adds about 0.7" and isn't much thicker than Converse. Ryan doesn't have a big heel, but between the heel, the sole and the possibility of an insole in a style like that, I think 1" range is a fair guess. It's probably only a fraction advantage because Ryan's shoes aren't big, but I think about 1/4". I can't see 6 cm difference in that particular photo, though. Maybe 5.5 cm tops because Denzel almost reaches Ryan's hairline. Just based on that photo and footwear, I'd think Ryan was 2" taller than Denzel barefoot. Kitsch is in the photo above. That's director Daniel Espinosa with Denzel and Ryan below. His shoes might be 1/8" or so less than Denzel's. This is what I see anyway. I'll say that you could argue up to a 2.25" difference and because of Ryan's small heel, I'll concede it's debatable whether he has much of an advantage, but he definitely has more hair than Denzel.
Canson said on 8/Nov/18
@Mickie: the footwear advantage is even debatable. He may have one but the degree is unknown. Denzel’s shoes look as if they would add at least an inch to his own height so that may make sense with what you said 0.5cm. Then again the thickness of Reynolds heel is hard to tell. Meaning 1 in. Vs 3cm.
Canson said on 7/Nov/18
@Rising: I would estimate Denzel to be in a sneaker that adds at least an inch if not a 3cm. Kitsch looks to have the thinnest footwear of the three
Canson said on 7/Nov/18
@Rising: agreed. Some are even in denial about having lost the height. Lots of these older actors have shown they’ve lost. You get some guys who aren’t accurate with their height but may be based off someone else who was a certain size pre height loss once upon a time
Mickie said on 5/Nov/18
I think that looks about 6 cm Reynolds has on Denzel above. If Reynolds has a 0.5 cm advantage in footwear over Denzel (which looks like it would be the case) that comes out to just over 2". Reynolds at 6'1.75" and Washington at 5'11.5" line up. Rob has prime Washington at 6'0.25" which seems about right.
Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Nov/18
@Canson: Exactly. About 2" above AND Denzel is in 0.7" sneakers. So if Denzel is about 182 cm these days then he's not over 184 in those sneakers making Ryan 190 at best in his shoes. I tend to think he's 6'1.75" because of the quote and because solid 6'2" Terry Crews and Brett Favre look taller, but I haven't even completely ruled out Ryan at a solid 6'2", but the Denzel pic does not support that. Neither does the pic above with Taylor Kitsch. As for Letterman, I buy 6'1.5" peak seeing how tall he looked in the 80's. It's not impossible he was a bit shorter, but 6'1" absolute minimum, though he was probably below that when he met Ryan and didn't realize it. Some men are oblivious to height loss while others exaggerate theirs. I'd guess Letterman is the former. @Junior: Btw, which Conan comparison are you referring to.
Mickie said on 4/Nov/18
Conan would measure over 6'3". I've seen him in person, I think he's not 6'4" but he's over 6'3". T.J. Miller could be 6'1.5" honestly, I know he claims 6'3" but I wouldn't be surprised by him being 6'1.5". Samuel L Jackson has shrunk a good amount btw.
Canson said on 4/Nov/18
@Junior: Reynolds isn’t 3” taller than Denzel. That’s 2”. Denzel could be 5’11.5 today for all we know
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Nov/18
6'1.75" that will make Conan O'brien 6'3 max, Jared Padalecki 6'3 1/4, TJ Miller 6'1, Samuel L Jackson 6'0 max and lastly Denzel Washington 5'10 3/4.
Canson said on 25/Oct/18
@Rising: I’m still not sure how tall Letterman was at his peak. I also wonder if 6’1.5 isn’t a morning height of some sort or shoe height potentially. I can buy a 6’1 Letterman peak however although I don’t completely rule out 6’1.5 either
Mickie said on 23/Oct/18
In my comment below I meant proportions that make him seem taller.
Anyways, my current take on Reynold's height is similar, about 6'1.75". With good posture that'll look 6'2" to anyone.
Mickie said on 20/Oct/18
Yeah people's claims sometimes downplay their height. It's not the norm but I have a relative who must be super close to 5'10", and honestly looks a bit over that to me, who only claims 5'9". Maybe he's 5'9.75" and just has proportions that make him seem shorter, but he's not a flat 5'9" but claims it. Also not a height obsessed guy by any means.
Mister lennon said on 20/Oct/18
For me, minimum 6'2 flat. Less than that is very unlikely, in my opinion.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Oct/18
That might be true, although there are few exceptions. Most people who are 3/4" of an inch will just round up to the next one.
Canson said on 17/Oct/18
@Viper: people do that all the time. I’ve heard someone say “6’2/6’3” or almost 6’3” and they’re 6’2 3/4. It’s possible but at the same time maybe he is 6’1.5 like you said
viper said on 15/Oct/18
If you're 6-1.75 you're not gonna say
6-1-6-2. At 6-1.5 yeah.
I think he's 6-1.
Canson said on 15/Oct/18
@Mickie: I have to say Letterman is over listed
Rising - 174 cm said on 15/Oct/18
Letterman was almost 68 in that interview so if we say he was 6'1.5" peak and rounded up to 6'2", but didn't realize he shrunk like many older men don't then he could be under 6'1", but still thinking he's 6'2". Letterman currently being under 6'1" as Rob lists him, but still thinking of himself as 6'2" could explain his surprised reaction. I don't think Crews has an inch on Ryan either.
said on 14/Oct/18
If Letterman is over listed, what height is Keith Olbermann? Click Here
As for Reynolds, he looks about 6'2" but I can believe he's just under it barefoot. Maybe 6'1.75" would be a likely figure given his mentioning he's 6'1" - 6'2". 6'1.75" is still a distinctly tall guy.
Angus said on 13/Oct/18
6.1.5" 0.5" on Nathan fillon
said on 12/Oct/18
@Christian: I have to agree with Viper now. And I’ve said it all along about Letterman. He was never as tall as he’s listed here. He claimed his shoes too. He thought Reynolds was taller than he actually is
Tall Sam said on 12/Oct/18
Always looks close with other 6'2" range guys, maybe he's on the weak side but near 6'1" seems really improbable.
Canson said on 9/Oct/18
@Rising: that was a very mature post! And very well said! As for Willes, we’ve heard it all. From therapy about him being too tall (he claims he’s 6’2 which is not too tall). Maybe he makes others taller for the reason that MJkOP said that Brad does. But if Willes were to say anything to you, I would laugh. Nobody here took him seriously. He often would jump on the bandwagon with guys here who are very generous and say “well so and so is always right”.
Canson said on 9/Oct/18
@Dream: right. I was saying that about Davis being off to the side and slouching a bit even before Viper. I mentioned it on Merriman’s page
said on 9/Oct/18
@Christian: My bad man. I need to get on a computer and copy/ paste. Mine is down. I took a copy of the page (should say Original Software and then after he straightened it out). He posted on 16 March. Two different links. If this doesn’t work I’ll post tomorrow
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 8/Oct/18
Please link me the pic of Merriman with LT that Viper fixed. I can't find the pic of the two for some reason.
Andrea said on 8/Oct/18
Ryan may well be height twin with the plumber and the Challenger #5 from the HC, 6'1.5 at an extreme low and 6'1.75-6'2 at his normal low, but I can't see him any less than that. A guy like Hugh Jackman, who has never been the full 6'2, IMO, I think had a lot more chance of being as low as 6'1.5 (at his peak) than Ryan...
said on 8/Oct/18
Then Terry Crews would be 6'3.5" or even higher. Terry looks easily taller than Ryan. It may be the photo, but Terry is easily taller than Ryan.
I still think Ryan is a bit over 6'2", but he was definitely shorter than Terry Crews.
Canson said on 7/Oct/18
@Dream: I agree. 6’1.5-6’2 is too low but 6’2-6’2.5 is possible. I personally have him 6’2.5. As for the pics, the ones Andrea posted aren’t great either. Viper is right. Davis isn’t even standing completely straight in one of them
Rising - 174 cm said on 7/Oct/18
@Canson: Ryan can look over 6'2" at times and his habit of slouching an wearing Converse at times makes it easy for me to understand why some think he's over 6'2", but the absolute most I could give him is 6'2" or 1/8" over because I'm confident he's not taller than Brett Favre or Terry Crews. viper's 6'1.5" estimate is arguable, but I do think Ryan is taller than Nathan Fillion so I'm still hesitant to go that low himself. As for willes, I'd have sympathy for him if he's actually struggled with alcohol or drug addiction, but his behavior wasn't a one or two time thing and it seemed he just didn't like hearing from people who disagreed with him. The funny thing is you'd have to ban Ryan from his own page! I disagree that Rob regularly overlists people by 1/2". The ones I think are clearly overlisted by 1/2" stand out as exceptions(Mel Gibson, Michael Douglas, Mario Lopez, Antonio Banderas etc.) and there are some athletes and wrestlers I'd probably put in that category including Merriman and others whom I'd say could be either 1/4" or 1/2" shorter than listed. But imo, Rob is accurate enough that I'm somewhat surprised when he keeps someone as much as a half inch over what I believe them to be. I think some of the really disputed heights or heights where there's a legitimate question how much is height loss and how much is posture are different as you start with a margin of error probably not less than 1/2". And many I mentioned also wear lifts so that also makes the margin of error greater. I'd only include pages that get a fair amount of discussion as well because obviously some older pages that haven't been looked at as much will be more prone to errors. I've seen some imitation celebrity height sites and they're not even close to as accurate as Rob in part because they tend to have knee-jerk reactions to one flawed photo so I prefer Rob's more conservative approach. Obviously, Rob's attention has to be divided between every page while we as posters can focus on the ones we're most interested in.
Canson said on 6/Oct/18
@Christian: I am confident that Davis is taller with LT than Merriman. There is a better gauge of Merriman’s height difference with LT. Go to Merriman’s page to March 16th of this year. Viper used software to straighten out the pic in the 2nd link of that post, and that’s a more accurate comparison of their heights. It’s 4-5” diff in The pic between LT and Merriman. The pic with Davis and LT is on Davis’s Facebook page. You can see the full pic of Davis and LT and it’s clear that LT is closer to the camera and has a footwear advantage on Davis. Yet the height difference is still more than it is in the pic with Merriman and LT. LT measured 5’10.25 at the combine (likely a morning height of some sort). I don’t see anything over 5’10” for him if he even reaches a full 5’10” in the afternoon.
said on 5/Oct/18
@Canson I think I misread viper’s comment as being ‘feet away from the camera’ when his comment meant ‘standing off the side of the camera.’ My bad. I should have read better.
I was talking about the pictures that @Andrea linked. — Click Here
and Click Here
The first one, Merriman looks taller. Both of them are slouching. However, we can’t see footwear, but let’s assume they have similar footwear. Merriman looks taller.
The second picture. Now, I can see what Viper is saying by standing off to the side of the camera. However, I’m not sure if it affects his height that much as Vernon is ‘closer’ to the camera. Not by a big amount, but he’s closer. At the same time, Vernon is slouching while Merriman is standing straight.
I still don’t agree that Merriman is the full 6’4”, but 6’2” or lower seems too low.
Canson said on 5/Oct/18
We can thrown Ryan Reynolds into the category with Boris Khodjoe and Shawne Merriman as his height is a bit difficult to decipher. I can appreciate how he can look over 6’2” at times and even under 6’2”. I have to give Rob credit. 6’2” is fair for a listing as most of the celebs here are overlisted by about 1/2”, some even more. I highly doubt that Many of the celebs here are listed accurately at their afternoon low. Many are in shoes and others rounded up a bit. There are some that may be up to two inches off. Last but not least, there are a handful that may be underlisted by a tad. He could fall into any of the categories being his claims are all over the place ranging from 6’1/6’2, 6’2, 6’3. This would lead me to believe that he’s 186-187 barefoot and near 6’3” in shoes but there is always a possibility he measured 6’1/6’2 in his teens and potentially grew a touch.
Canson said on 5/Oct/18
@Dream: thanks! You write very well yourself!
said on 5/Oct/18
I hope you don't mean this one, Christian: Click Here
. Considering that it's shot from a terrible angle, with some clear tilt in Vernon's favor, where you can't even tell whether they're standing tall or not, I wonder how you can draw any conclusion from a pic like that...
If you want to believe that Vernon is taller than Shawne because you want to, you're perfectly entitled to do so, but fact is that Shawne looks comfortably taller than him in any single (good) pic, even, although indirectly, next to LaDainian Tomlinson (with Shawne even standing further away than LaDainian, compared to Vernon) : Click Here

For the record, I don’t agree that Canson has bad English. I think his vocabulary is excellent.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 4/Oct/18
@Christian Yes, that is true, but we also have other pictures that say the contrary. Some Merriman looks taller. Others Vernon looks taller.
It’s a back and fourth thing. Vernon isn’t further away from the camera, (as some of the pictures, I saw, show).
Let’s take it to Merriman’s page, shall we?
As for Ryan, a case for 6’2 1/8ths” can be made.
viper said on 4/Oct/18
Merriman is not taller in that pic. Vernon is feet away
Canson said on 4/Oct/18
@Christian: Id be very surprised if Merriman were taller or even as tall
Canson said on 3/Oct/18
@Dream: I have to give Viper Credit with Reynolds. Christian also said it below that he may be right. I don’t have Crews over 6’2 flat today or Favre and he’s shorter than both. I can easily see 6’1.5 with them. It’s possible Denzel isn’t as tall as he’s listed today as he’s older and probably lost height. I actually thought Reynolds was a full 6’2 as he looks it but 6’1.5 isn’t far off. Maybe more like 6’1 5/8 but some derivative of a weak 6’2 is my guess at a low
Canson said on 3/Oct/18
@Dream: not sure which pic you’re referring to but In one of them Davis is clearly not standing completely straight. And Viper is right in one Merriman is favored slightly by the camera. If you compare the two with Ladanian Tomlinson, Davis is taller with LT than Merriman is with him. LT even had footwear advantage on Davis in their pic and is standing up further. Assuming LT measures 5’10.25 at the combine he may be 5’9.75 or 5’10 tops where Merriman looks 4-5” taller. Davis looks a full 6’3” with LT. Davis measured 6’3.25 combine but in person looked about 6’3. Maybe 6’2.75 but that’s as low as I’d go and I’d actually say 6’2 7/8 more likely as he looked exactly how my 6’3 friend looks next to me and he’s 190.3-.4 cm at night
viper said on 3/Oct/18
Vernon is standing way off to the side. You can't judge any height there between them.
Meanwhile he's right next to Aaron Maybin.
Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Oct/18
@Canson: I appreciate both your comments and vipers, but I agree with you. I don't think viper's 2005 guesses mean much either way. Even Rob has changed some listings considerably himself and I was definitely off by an inch or more on some a decade ago and I may still be on some, though I think we've likely all become better at guessing height from posting here and discussing the subject.
@Christian: I agree it isn't impossible, but I wouldn't guess any lower and I think he's more of a solid 187 cm guy. If a guy is tall enough then saying something like 6'1"-6'2" can mean he measures anywhere between that. You mean he looks about 2" taller than Denzel, right? I figured that saying he was shorter is probably a typo, but if we consider Favre and Crews to be solid 6'2" guys then Ryan would look to fall into the weak 6'2" range, though he does look taller than Fillion.

But there's another pic where Vernon looks taller than Merriman.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 3/Oct/18
Guys, the argument is getting old...
But I have to agree with @Andrea. Vernon isn’t far away from the camera. Merriman does look taller.
Could we stop the argument?
As for Ryan, I could see maybe 6’2 1/8ths”, but Terry Crews edged him out.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 2/Oct/18
@Tall Sam Nathan Fillion has a footwear advantage in those photos, and he is still shorter than Ryan Reynolds is by a slight amount. Their eye level is also similar, which means that Reynolds is taller since his forehead is easily fit five instead of four.
viper said on 2/Oct/18
Yeah Andrea, you said Canson had crappy english. Haha
You are insane
Canson said on 2/Oct/18
@Viper: Rising is good but nobody here is 99% right with estimates.
Agent Orange said on 2/Oct/18
He does look shorter than Idris Elba. Maybe a weak 6’2 is more appropriate. I thought he was 6’2 but will now go with 6’1.75.
Andrea said on 2/Oct/18
Yeah, Sam, while I agree that he's easily taller than Fillion (who seems a genuine 6'1.5 himself, and which is the reason why I think that even 6'1.5 looks too low for Reynolds), I doubt it is as much as a big inch. I can buy a solid 0.5 inch, but I don't think it would be much more than that (although I should probably watch that show they did together to get a better idea about it).
said on 2/Oct/18
I think Reynolds is around a cm taller than Nathan Fillion, I doubt a full inch between them. Click Here
Andrea said on 2/Oct/18
Coming from you, I take that as a huge compliment, viper, and actually, I'd start worrying if you thought otherwise...
As for the rest, well, you keep confirming every single thing I've said about you. 😊
Andrea said on 2/Oct/18
My words are quite clear, viper. Even if you said there was a small chance that Tom could have been 6'0 (which you didn't), that still speaks a lot about you, considering that no one with a decent knowledge about height would have ever thought that mark was even remotely possible for him.
And again, unfortunately for you, not only "I was ever right about a person's height", but, as I have already told you, basically all my estimates always turned out to be very sensible and pretty much spot on, when Rob eventually met the celebrities in question. The list of celebrities I guessed right is basically as long as the list of celebrities you guessed wrong, so very long. 😊
viper said on 2/Oct/18
With Garrard being 6-1.2 from the senior bowl, Crews doesn't look any taller.
viper said on 2/Oct/18
Andrea you are just dumb and blind.
Yes, Vernon is 100 feet away. Merriman is standing right next to Aaron Maybin, who is 6-3 1/2 at a low considering he measured 6-4.1 and 6-3.7. Merriman looks an inch shorter with perfect posture. While Maybin isn't standing his tallest.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Oct/18
Viper might not be wrong when he said that Reynolds is 6'1.5". After all, he looked a bit shorter than Crews, Denzel and Favre. Maybe his 6'1"-6'2" claim is 100% legit.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 1/Oct/18
Rob met Nathan Fillion, and confirmed that he was roughly 6’1 1/2” in person; just as Ryan Reynolds was a good inch taller than Nathan Fillion, at the very least. I stand by my 6’2 1/2” estimate, especially since he generally appears to hover somewhere in between 6’2”-6’3” on the big screen, and in almost all photos. As for him appearing to be 6’1” at the most by Terry Crews, it was for the exact reason as why Mark Strong appeared to clear 6’3 1/2” Mark by him from how it appears, with slightly less distortion. He’s not shorter than Brett Favre either.
viper said on 1/Oct/18
It would be one thing If a guy like Risingforce who is 99 percent right calling me out, but it's Andrea of all people 😂
viper said on 1/Oct/18
I guess I should be flattered that Andrea is obsessed with me, scouring back to 2005 posts.
Nah, I would If he was ever right about a person's height. Sad
viper said on 1/Oct/18
Sorry Andrea, I did say it was a small chance. If I had to bet money I would have said he was 6-1. Oh well, I was wrong there.
Still doesn't change the fact that you are a major douchebag. And yeah, I was looking at pics of Jared when he was 6-2. Sorry.
said on 1/Oct/18
Considering that in both the "Vernon-Merriman" pics I have posted ( Click Here Click Here
) Vernon is standing right next to Shawne, I don't see how Vernon is "100 feet away", viper. Are you sure I am the one who needs that "Lasik eye surgery", LMFAO? And those pics have nothing to do with those pics of Crews with Garrard, quality-wise. In fact, the latter are shot from a bad angle with Crews standing clearly further away from the camera, while my pics are shot from a central position and Shawne isn't standing any closer than Vernon (if anything, Vernon is), so they are very good pics (which show how absurd your 6'1.5-6'2 "estimate" for Shawne is, given that he looks comfortably taller than a measured 6'3.25 guy like Vernon in them). The fact that I need to explain you that, and that you say "That Terry-Garrard pic is way more legit than that" just goes to prove my point: not only you are a bad judge of height, but you're one of the worst... ever!
Andrea said on 1/Oct/18
Hmm. I guess there was another viper poster back in 2005 because this is what a certain "Viper652" once said:
"Viper652 said on 7/Nov/05
Im close to 6-3 and my shoe size is a 10. Has nothing to do with height. Regardless Tom looks 6-1 tops, could be 6-0 possibly."
Or maybe you simply had "been looking at pics where he looked it before he grew", just like you did with Jared? 😂😂😂 Nice excuse, btw. Too bad that it makes no sense, considering that Jared was well over 20 and certainly full grown when he became really famous and he was added to Celebheights, but again, logic is certainly the last thing I expect from someone like you, like your last paragraph (in your already non-sense comment) proves.
viper said on 30/Sep/18
Garrard measured 6-1.2 at the senior bowl
Canson said on 30/Sep/18
@Rising: his 6’3 is likely in shoes rounded up. While 6’2” is how he commonly looks, I wouldn’t rule out 6’1.5 and with Denzel who is older, it’s possible he’s lost height these days. I see Reynolds next to the guys you mentioned and see 6’1.5 probably as well.
Canson said on 30/Sep/18
@Christian: yea Gararrd could be 6’1 3/8 worst case imho. Some of those guys lose a 1/2” from their combine heights in the comparison I did. It showed in the one article that they woke up at 6am got drug tested then measured (presumably within or at about 1 hour out of bed). I doubt Crews is that short honestly. I can see 6’1.75 (dipping a hair under 6’2) like you said but not 6’1”.
viper said on 29/Sep/18
Lol Andrea talking about bad pic posting.
She's posted that utter crap Vernon-Merriman pic where Vernon is 100 feet away.
That Terry-Garrard pic is way more legit than that
Christian 6'5 3/8"
said on 29/Sep/18
@Canson and Viper
Garrard and Crews look about the same height, once the tilt is adjusted Click Here
but Garrard had a slight footwear advantage. Click Here
He measured 6'1 7/8" at the combine so he could be about 6'1.5" at his low. Click Here
So it's very possible that Crews is 6'1.75"
Canson said on 28/Sep/18
@Rising: to be fair, I don’t agree with some things Andrea says either and I’m just as involved in an argument with him as Christian and Rising. But I don’t agree with everyone. Even You and I, Viper and I, even Christian and I who generally agree a lot have disagreed before. However, I can certainly say that you or Andrea for that matter are not even in the same conversation with Willes. Willes inflated everyone then got angry with a poster as soon as they provided their own estimates. And this is regardless of whether that poster even responded directly to Willes. Willes is the “textbook” prototypical troll here on Celebheights. And yes I remember when he said that to you about a year or so ago and I wasn’t surprised. You’re a pretty stand up guy and it didn’t warrant any retaliation on your part because most people here already recognize what Willes is about. I mean he once claimed that his father was posting under his name and that he himself was posting under the influence. Then even had the nerve to get angry with other posters for calling him out when he began over 90% of the arguments he was in. The arguments with Viper and Andrea are a bit different tho because neither of them is a troll in my honest opinion. They both speak on conviction which I have to respect as well
viper said on 28/Sep/18
Andrea you are out to lunch. I never said Welling was 6-0. I was off by an inch.
If I said Jared was 6-2 I must have been looking at pics where he looked it before he grew. I said he was 6-3. I was off by an inch on those 2.
Oh well, If that makes me a poor judge of height then I'm doing extremely well. Sorry you don't come close. Maybe you should invest in Lasik eye surgery?
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 27/Sep/18
If he's 6'1" range, then most likely it's upper range like 6'1.75" but not less than that.
Andrea said on 27/Sep/18
I'm just messing with him a bit, Rising, although when I say that he's a poor judge of height, I really mean it. All he does is post terrible photos with bad angles and clear camera advantages/disadvantages in order to support his delusional "estimates" (if they can even be called that), and he has been doing that for ages. If you think you can have a serious discussion with him, you probably don't know him very well...
Anyway, I can certainly see how Ryan can look under 6'2 at times, and a fraction under that is far from being impossible (after all, he himself claimed to be 6'1-6'2), but I doubt it'd be more than a small fraction as he generally looks a decent 6'2 (and certainly much nearer 6'2 than 6'1), to me. Even 6'1.5, I have a hard time seeing him as low as that, given that he looks easily taller than someone like Nathan Fillion (who looks a genuine 6'1.5 guy himself), although I wouldn't say it is by as much as posters like Junior say...
Andrea said on 27/Sep/18
LOL, viper, as I said, you can't say you're not funny. I'm sorry, but a "good judge of height" would never think a 6'0 Tom Welling or a 6'2 Jared Padalecki (just to name a couple from a very long list) are even remotely possible...
And if I'm "as blind as Stevie Wonder", then I'm even better than I thought, considering that, despite my blindness, basically all my estimates always turned out to be very sensible and pretty much spot on, when Rob eventually met the celebrities in question. 😉
Canson said on 26/Sep/18
@Viper: he’s further from the camera and not sure if he’s standing his tallest or footwear. I can’t buy 6’0” or 6’1 for Crews. Maybe he dips below 6’2” slightly but not sure
said on 25/Sep/18
Crews looks 6-0 with Garrard. Click Here
I don't think he's 6-0 but 6-1 range isn't out of the question for Terry.
Rising - 174 cm said on 24/Sep/18
@Andrea: I don't know how this whole thing started between you and viper, but saying he's a poor judge of height just seems like baiting him to me and as interesting as the Merriman debate is, does it really need to spill onto this page? I do agree with you that the Garrard pic is dodgy due to camera and posture and while I wouldn't expect Terry taller from just those pics, I think there are enough variables there to take it with a grain of salt. I also agree that Terry is probably taller, but just slightly. Imo, Terry has to be in the 6'2"-6'2.25" range while Ryan has a bit broader range at 6'1.5" minimum and 6'2.1" max, but I really think he's either 6'1.75" or 6'2" flat all things considered.
One thing I'll say is this is a refreshing change because just a year ago, that poster willes said I should be banned for saying "Ryan may very well be a full 6-2" and that Ryan struggled with 6'2" in the 2 pics above. I can see various viewpoints on Ryan, but he was just a fanatic pushing for Ryan at 6'3" before Ryan ever tried claiming it himself. Of course, anyone with eyes can see Ryan is about 2" taller than 5'11.75" listed Denzel Washington above and Denzel only has 0.6"-0.7" sneakers and Ryan is only 2.5" or so taller than 5'10.75" Taylor Kitsch and Kitsch has a footwear advantage, but I doubt his boots add more than 1.5". That would mean Ryan looks about 6'2.5"-6'2.75" or 189-190 cm range in shoes in both pics. This is the first time I've felt comfortable enough with an estimate to add it to the average guess.

That's not the only pic where David looks taller than Terry sweetheart. And 99 percent of this board would say I'm a good judge of height. You're a joke thinking 6-2 measured Shawne Merriman is 6-4 lulz. And If Im a bad judge of height, then you really are as blind as Stevie Wonder. It's all relative
Dejavu said on 23/Sep/18
I think 6'2 is a fair listing. He has managed to look a strong 6'2 in most of his movies and seldom under. Terry Crews edged him out with obvious hair disadvantage.
said on 22/Sep/18
"viper said on 20/Sep/18
I can't explain how 6-1.2 senior bowl measured David Garrard looks taller than Terry Crews."
It's called bad pics, viper. As other posters have already told you, Terry is leaning and standing further away from the camera in those pics with Garrard, so it's not that surprising that he ends up "looking" shorter (unless you're a poor judge of height, which you certainly are): Click Here
What I can't explain is how he looks at least 4 cms shorter than Shawne "6'1.5-6'2" Merriman... Click Here
As for Ryan, it certainly looks like Terry has a better chance of being over 6'2 than him from those pics, although I don't think there would be much difference between them.

I've been beating the Reynolds is 6-1 drum since 2005

@RP: That height difference looks about right, but Reynolds had Converse(5/8") while Favre had the same shoes he wore in this interview: Click Here
Maybe not a 2 cm advantage, but certainly 1-1.5 cm so Favre would likely edge Ryan by a small amount, but he was only 6'2 1/8" in the early 90's so barely over 6'2" peak and maybe nothing over 6'2" by his mid to late 40's. This adds up with how Ryan looks with 6'2"-6'2.25" Terry Crews. Rob even said Terry could look 6'2" max on video with Dolph Lundgren at Arnold's book signing 6 years ago. Ryan could be 6'1.75" or a weak 6'2" based on these comparisons.

Terry Crews did look well taller than Ryan Reynolds. I still see 6'2 1/8ths" for Reynolds, but not 189 cm flat.
RP said on 18/Sep/18
6’2-1/4” Brett Favre had 3/4” of an inch on him! IMO...a barefoot Ryan Reynolds would only measure 6’1-5/8” in the afternoon. 6’3” in footwear. Probably 6’1-1/2” after 6pm. 6’2” fresh out of bed. Rob, your thoughts? Can you argue this after seeing him with a strong 6’2” to 6’2-1/4” Brett Favre?

Looks to me like Terry is taller with similar footwear.

Where did Terry Crews edge him out.
If that's true with similar footwear, he's not a legit 6-2.
Zampo said on 5/Sep/18
Agreed. He genuinely looks around 6'2.

I think Terry Crews edged this guy out.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Sep/18
A young Affleck could look 189-190cm at times
Andrea said on 3/Sep/18
That may well be the case, Zampo.
I know he has claimed to be 6'1-6'2, but if he's under 6'2, like that claim suggests, I doubt it's going to be more than a small fraction as he generally looks one of the most genuine 6'2 celebrities on here, to me. Regardless of his claim, I think that anywhere around 6'2 (6'1.75-6'2.25) is possible for him, but I wouldn't go as high as 6'2.5 (or so as low as 6'1.5)...
Zampo said on 2/Sep/18
I'm pretty sure Reynolds is someone who doesn't dip below 187 cm in any circumstance. I reckon could measure 6'1 5/8 range at his very lowest (hard day on set) but would generally measure between 6'1.75-6'2 usually. Anyone within this range would be seen as a flat/strong 6'2 by most. 6'2 is a fair listing.
Rising - 174 cm said on 1/Sep/18
@Junior: Ryan does seem taller than 6'1.5" Fillion to me in general, but you're overstating your case. He only looks 5-6 cm taller than Denzel above and Denzel's sneakers don't even look to give 2 cm so Ryan could have 0.5 to 1 cm footwear advantage. If Denzel is solid 182 range then he'd only be about 184 in those sneakers. He doesn't look more than 3" taller than Taylor Kitsch above either and Kitsch is below 5'11". You make valid points with some comparisons where Ryan does look taller than 6'2", but those 2 comparisons along with a few other you pointed out like Favre and Beatty are examples of Ryan looking about what he claimed or 6'2" max. You can maybe argue it's his posture in those comparisons, but he doesn't look over 6'2" in those comparisons either way.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Sep/18
Reynolds would very likely be the taller one.
Paul NS (6ft 0.5) said on 31/Aug/18
Viper, those old listings sound suspect to me. He's too noticeably taller than Nathan Fillion (who Rob has met) for me to think there's any chance he could be 6'1" range. It's more likely they just got it wrong

I think Reynolds can be over 6'2" flat without much question.

Well then.. If we could believe that he is strong 6'1 while Dwyane Wade 6'2 and Conan O'brien would be 6'2.25" and Charles Barkley 6'3 5/8, we'll go with Nathan Fillion being 5'11 7/8 and Denzel Washington being 5'10 1/8 and Taylor Kitsch probably be like 5'9 tops along Hugh Jackman under a fraction 6'0.
berta said on 30/Aug/18
reyan and ben affleck back to back would be interesting. i think they would be the same height

His 6-1 listings on the internet some years ago suggest he's not downplaying imo.
And why would he? He's not tall enough to not get jobs
said on 24/Aug/18
What would you say his morning and evening heights are Rob? I wake up and I’m 190cm and usually by the evening I’m between 188-189 but I never drop below 188 so I classify myself as a solid 6’2
he might be a guy who is 6ft 3 out of bed and really if measured at night could still be about 6ft 2.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Aug/18
@viper If he is 6'1 then Michael Strahan would have being 6'2 1/2 claiming 6'4 and little as a fraud and Conan O'Brien will be 6'2.25".' All actors might all be listed 1.5-2" higher by Rob. People can downplayed height or inflating it. Most people tend to round up or inflating height instate of claiming a true barefoot height to others. Reynolds case i go with a downplay more like the 6'2 he use to claim and i would have need to re-measured my cousin next time who get a 6'1 7/8 (187.6) at night, because he met Reynolds up closed in person having notice same footwear they had and he told that he look about an inch lower than Reynolds. Other case people like Brandon Routh and Geoff Stults i would go with 6'1 favor on his word on Letterman show. But no i would have thought they were all 6'2 at worst.
Canson said on 20/Aug/18
If he claimed 6’1” it means he is not “over 6’2” like people are claiming. Probably a weak 6’2” in reality
Canson said on 18/Aug/18
@Junior: because Conan isn’t as tall as you think he is. He’s not 6’3.75. He’s prob 6’3” today and 6’3.25 peak
viper said on 17/Aug/18
It's not only Reynolds admitting 6-1, it's that he's been listed on sites saying 6-1 before he admitted it on Letterman
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Aug/18
@viper Then if he is 6'1.5" why do he often make cast all 0.5-1" lower than listed height and Conan O'Brien look dead on 3cm taller than him. I'm 100 percent sure Jeff Brides is 5'11 1/2 if anything Reynolds is under 6'2. Add on Kevin Bacon being 5'9 nothing and needed wear lift next to Reynolds.
Rising - 174 cm said on 15/Aug/18
@viper: Ryan's claim is a convincing argument as the most logical conclusion is that a man claiming to be 6'1"-6'2" did measure between those figures. Playing devil's advocate, all I can really think of is Ryan being undermeasured due to posture or an error or downplaying his height to be modest after Letterman remarking on it embarrassed him, but this seems even more of a stretch as I can't see him pulling the 6'1" out of thin air like that. If Mark Strong can be 6'1.5" then Ryan can be as well, though I'd lean more 6'1.75" in general. Internet listings depend on the source, though I do remember not thinking of Ryan as this tall back in his Van Wilder days. Maybe that's because I also read a shorter listing. I wonder why he decided to claim 6'3" all of a sudden.
Mister lennon said on 15/Aug/18
6'2 solid. 188-189.
viper said on 13/Aug/18
If Reynolds is a solid 6-2, why would he say 6-1.
And why was he listed at 6-1 on several sites back in the day.
The conclusion I see is that he's 6-1.5
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Aug/18
@Canson: Yeah, if I had to guess one was taller, I'd say Favre. Of course, we don't know that would still measure a full 6'2 1/8" at 46(when the photo was taken) after 20 years in the NFL. He doesn't look like he's shrunk to me, but I don't think you'd notice if he were a 1/8" or even 1/4" less.
@viper: That's honestly what he looks in the 2 photos above. If Ryan were 6'2.5" minimum, he should look close to 4" taller than Taylor Kitsch and the difference doesn't look anywhere near that. At the very least, it's not unreasonable to give Ryan the height he claimed. The only explanation I could think of aside from Ryan measuring 6'1.5"-6'1.75" is he was embarrassed at Letterman remarking about his height and modest because of that.
Dejavu said on 5/Aug/18
6’2 is a fair height for Ryan Reynolds. The max he can be is 6’2.25 and nothing above.

Reynolds is 6-1.5. He knows his height better than anyone.
Canson said on 4/Aug/18
@Rising: agreed. Favre should be around the same height as Reynolds to be honest
Rising - 174 cm
said on 3/Aug/18
@Junior: That's not true about Favre. On what planet is Reynolds half an inch taller than Favre? Click Here
Even though Favre has an easy 1 to 1.5 cm footwear advantage, the difference looks more than that. At best, Reynolds would be Favre's height barefoot unless Ryan traveled to space and stood next to Favre immediately upon returning. If he were really 6'2.5", he'd be over 6'3" in the Converse he wore with Favre. And Conan may very well be 6'3.25". He's been shorter than just about every 6'4" guy he's had on his show so I think he's about 6'3.5". Actually, confirmed 6'1" Barry Bonds made a 53 year old Samuel L. Jackson look 6'0.5" at best. Look at Jackson with 5'9" Kurt Russell: Click Here
Looks maybe 3" taller and Kurt isn't wearing his cowboy boots. I don't know how tall Jackson is, but he can definitely look shorter than he's believed to be. And Reynolds didn't have 2.5" on Gosling: Click Here
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Jul/18
Telling the truth many many times that Ryan Reynolds really is not under 6'2 1/2. If he is only 6'2 then Brett Favre is only 6'1 1/2, Richard E.Grant 6'1 now, Bill Hader 6'0 3/8, Denis Leary 6'0 3/4, Conan O'brien is 6'3 1/4, Michael Strahan 6'3 1/2, Ray Liotta 5'10 7/8 (12 years back), Hugh Jackman peak be 6'1 1/2, Chris Hemsworth 6'2 3/8, Chi Mcbride 6'4, Ben Affleck 6'1 3/8, Dax Shepard weak 6'2, Will Arnett 6'2, Max Irons 6'2, Patrick Warburton 6'1 1/2, Nathan Fillions 6'1, Ryan Gosling 5'11 1/2, Matthew Goode 6'1, Samuel L.Jackson 6'0 1/2 and too much to list out. Anywhere from 187.6-188.9cm is too low for him.
Rising - 174 cm said on 28/Jul/18
I don't agree that he never looks under 188 since he looks under it in the two photos above, but Ryan does slouch and he'll wear Converse at times so you expect him to look shorter than he is at times.
berta said on 21/Jul/18
i think ryans range he would measure is somewhere from 188-189. He never looks over 189 and he never looks under 188. Thats why i think 188,5 would be better listing, but the listing could be right
Dream(5'9.5") said on 20/Jul/18
I would say 6'2 3/8th", but he's no higher. He's shorter than Max Irons.
Canson said on 11/Jul/18
@Junior: I can agree that 6’1” looks too small but 6’2” looks right for him. You’re friend met him and maybe one had footwear advantage or less time awake. Not sure but that’s odd for him to say 6’1-6’2” when he’s closer to 6’3 or 6’2” and change at a low. I could see maybe a solid 6’2” or 6’1 7/8 saying 6’1/6’2 as it’s not much of a stretch since a 6’2” guy at a low can likely lose another 1/4” to get an extreme low and it would be legit
Rising - 174 cm said on 11/Jul/18
@josh b: True, but Reynolds does seem to be slouching in some of the pics. I agree that Ryan's height varies a lot in photos and I think your guess is as likely as any, though I can see why some guess him at 189 cm. With that said, saying 189 cm is the least he could be like Junior requires emphasizing the comparisons where Ryan looks taller while disregarding the ones where he looks shorter. In fairness to viper, Ryan's one claim seems to support that estimate and Ryan looks more 187 cm above with Taylor Kitsch and Denzel. As for my guess, I could either see josh b's estimate or the possibility Ryan never drops below 6'2" and could measure 1/4" over at noon or might be the same exact 6'2 1/8" that Brett Favre measured. I'd be somewhat surprised if he measured more than 1/4" taller or shorter than 6'2" in the evening or around noon. A legit 6'2" is quite tall, but people don't realize this because many 6'1" max guys claim 6'2".
josh b said on 9/Jul/18
Google him and Ryan Gosling, barely an inch between them. Just goes to show how photos change, I see him as a good 6'2 with a low of 6'1.75.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Jul/18
I don't see below 189cm. Let alone 188cm. He look much taller than Jake Gyllenhaal than Stephen Curry did. If Reynolds stay 6'2 then Will Arnett will be 6'2 and Nathan Fillion 6'1.
Mister lennon said on 5/Jul/18
With bad posture, yes.
But that is not his true height. Everyone could look shorter than they are with poor posture.
If reynolds has good posture and is standing straigth at his full height, he is 188 minimum.
said on 4/Jul/18
6'1.5 is too short for ryan. Too unlikely.
He is 188 minimum. Nothing below a flat 6'2.
Standing a bit loose he might measure 6ft 1.5
MAD SAM said on 2/Jul/18
Say what you want but I don’t think Ryan goes below 188 cm

6'1 is too less for rysn. Minimum flat 6'2.

He didn't look above 6'2 but was more 6'1.5 next to Josh Brolin.
QM6'1QM said on 29/Jun/18
Ryan Reynolds - worthy personification of a man of 6'2"!
He perfectly holds this mark, authentic, tall, no doubt!
My opinion is 188 cm/ 6'2".
P.S. And yes, you probably see that he is from Canada (if you are a fan "South Park") :).

I don't understand the Warren Beatty comment. Rob lists Beatty 6'0" and Ryan looked at most 2" taller: Click Here Click Here
Beatty has old man posture as well so that's one of the times Ryan doesn't look anything over 6'2".
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Jun/18
@Christian 6'5 3/8" By honesty my cousin really measure at 6'1 7/8 in the night and when he met Reynolds they're both coincident to have wear converse chucks classic style 0.5"inch. He still insist 6'2 5/8 absolute lowest that is why i trust him. Although he also say look much like an inch taller than him that would put Reynolds 190cm i doubt it but believe it at the same time a 50/50 chances. 6'2 5/8 is more reliable to me that i can see about 3cm max he can look taller than 6'1.5" Nathan Fillion.
Shorty tall said on 25/Jun/18
This is a little bit too much. C'mon , 5/8? Not 1/2 inch? You can see and spot the difference?
Dejavu said on 23/Jun/18
I think 6'2 is fair thats what he looks next to TJ Miller. He could look shorter than this listing next to Rob Delaney.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Jun/18
Right, none of us met Ryan in person so we can't 100% say for sure whether he's 6'1.5" or 6'2". All we can do is give our opinions. Junior's cousin met him and said he looked 6'2 5/8" but that depends on how well he was able to gauge Ryan's height properly.
viper said on 21/Jun/18
Jake looked like he measured 5-10
Canson said on 19/Jun/18
@Mad Sam: well to Viper’s credit, the man did say that he’s 6’1/6’2” out of his own mouth so it is debatable to say the least. While I do see him at 6’2 myself as well, maybe he measured that at another time and the others are off. Being height varies throughout the day he could Very well measure 6’1.75 at a low in the afternoon or even an extreme low or even 6’1.5 and not know any better. You don’t provide anything here that makes it “not negotiable”. Only an opinion as this is an opinion based site.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Jun/18
@viper Well that makes Hugh Jackman, Richard E.Grant and Nathan Fillion 6'0 1/2, Jake Gyllenhaal 5'10 1/4 and Warren Beatty 5'11.
Mister lennon said on 19/Jun/18
Minimum 6'2 flat. I think that he is a solid 6'2 guy.

Ryan is a solid 188 cm man it’s not negotiable and he isn’t lying

: 6'2.5" Patrick Warburton is at least 6'2 now and look 2cm shorter than Reynolds. Footwear unknown though. 6'2.75" is how he look with him.
Rising - 174 cm said on 12/Jun/18
@Canson: I'd give Denzel the full 6'0" peak, but yeah he is looking under it these days and in the photo above, Ryan has 6 cm max on him, but Denzel looks to only have 0.7" shoes and Ryan has about 1 cm thicker footwear so considering footwear he does only look about 2" taller. Denzel at 182 cm would be roughly 184 cm in those shoes, but posture is a bit of a variable as neither man stands that straight these days. He's not looking 6'2.5" in the above photo with Taylor Kitsch either considering Kitsch is 5'11" max by his own admission and Rob lists him slightly under that.
Fer_Cobo said on 12/Jun/18
Ryan Reynolds is a real 6'2" tall man,so that's because he often looks like a 6'3" man.
Canson said on 11/Jun/18
@Rising: I can see Ryan as roughly 6’2” but you’re right I don’t think he edges Favre either. At best even. One thing I will say is if Denzel is sub 6’0”, Reynolds May be sub 6’2” by a touch

Snoop has awful posture. He's far from an ideal point of reference. Samuel L. Jackson can also look shorter than he is. Just look at Jackson with 5'9" Kurt Russell in a lot of pictures. Here's a 53 year old Jackson back in 2002 with 6'1" Barry Bonds: Click Here
With a slouch and I believe less footwear, he winds up looking shorter than Bonds. Granted, Bonds could be 186 cm, but even so, I have doubts Jackson was a full 6'2" and even if he was, this shows he could always look shorter than he is. I think Paul Walker should be downgraded a 1/4" instead. It'd fit better with his 6'1" claim and explain why he didn't look much taller than Freddie Prinze Jr. A full 6'2" like Ryan and Brett Favre will look quite tall. Ryan could be 6'2.25", but I have a hard time saying he was taller than a peak Brett Favre(6'2 1/8")
Canson said on 9/Jun/18
@Rising: I never noticed the footwear difference. But that makes sense it Favre has one as I struggle to see a sub 6’2” Favre even at that age. Reynolds may be the same a solid 6’2 which is what I had guessed previously
German Beryozkin said on 8/Jun/18
Agree with Dejavu. Ryan with Brolin looks 6’2 Max. I’d say 6’1.5...
Dejavu said on 7/Jun/18
To be fair, in most of the photos I have posted of Josh Brolin and Ryan Reynolds. He look 6'2 and nothing above. In some photos, it only look 4 inches.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Jun/18
@Dejavu You also fail to see how bad Reynolds posture compare to Hemsworth stand on your post. You just post all advantage for Hemsworth to imply he is well solid 6'3 to you and disadvantage to say Reynolds is only 6'2. Reynolds upper body slouch could have take away near an inch and look at his leg standing with Brolin. How about the truth was Reynold was half inch taller than a Jackman but Reynolds was in a flat white 0.5" converse chucks sneakers and Jackman in at 1.1-1.2" dress shoes. Jackman is probably still 187cm 6'1 5/8 and by common facts he would have an inch shorter than Renolds to put them both barefoot. 6'2 Richard E Grant was a full inch shorter than Reynolds in The Hitman's Bodyguard. Grant we could argue have lost 1/2 in his 60s now so Reynolds is nothing under 6'2.5".

Favre did have at least 1 cm footwear advantage over Ryan's 0.6" shoes, but that explains why Favre looked clearly taller: Click Here
Take away the footwear advantage and stand them evenly and Ryan might be the same height, but certainly not taller. His new 6'3" claim is actually reasonable by Hollywood standards, but nonsense for anything other than shoes or possibly morning height when he stands next to a 6'2" measured athlete.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/May/18
@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover Yes a 1/4 taller maybe.
@Canson Not really can't tell. Look at my post on 9th May. Look at their footwear difference Brett had a 5/8 more footwear for sure. Reynolds will not look under 6'2.5" if he had the same footwear as Brett.
@Dejavu Reynolds had a 1 1/8 - 1 1/4 taller than 6'1.5" Nathan Fillion. If you believe just a strong 6'2 i"ll go for a max 6'0 7/8 (185cm) for Fillion and a 5'8 7/8 for Josh Brolin.
Delpo said on 21/May/18
Rob, what do you think about the picture with Hugh Jackman on his instagram? ?
Maybe Jackman now is in the 6 foot range? ???
Dejavu said on 19/May/18
He is a strong 6’2. He doesn’t look anything above 6’2 next to Josh Brolin who is 176cm. Chris Hemsworth who is 6’3 looks taller in comparison.

Comparing Josh Brolin with Chris Hemsworth and Ryan Reynolds, there is no way that Ryan Reynolds is close to 6’3. Hemsworth looks 6 inches taller than Josh Brolin while Reynolds look maybe 4 inches taller.
Canson said on 10/May/18
@Junior: it’s hard to tell who’s taller between Favre and Reynolds. Favre likely is still a full 6’2” even at 50. Reynolds could probably fall around that to be honest but I could almost rule out anything crazy like 6’1” or a solid 6’3”

That 2 link doesn't work. I use my imgur acct posted link.
Reynolds white chucks flat style 0.5"
Brett had a kind of footwear giving over 1.1"
I don't see why a 5/8 upgrade not happen to Reynolds if there is a little slouch and a min 1.5cm difference in footwear with Brett.

Rob, you can see that Reynolds drop a bit posture with Brett and high chance not shorter if he stand up military posture same as Brett and i have found a link the same outfit the day of their footwear during an individual interview. Reynolds is really not under 6'2.5" at worst.
: Reynolds had disadvantage flat style white colour converse chucks. I've bought the same pair it give 0.5" nothing more.
: Brett had a comfortable 1.2" style.
Junior Hernandez 1990

There is a full inch between 6'2 Richard E Grant and Reynolds. People can ignore the truth but there is not under 1.5" between a strong 6'1 like Denis Leary and Samuel l.Jackson compare to Reynolds. An upgrade should be toss up with a coin to make a decision by Rob.
Grant at this stage could have lost height, but Reynolds with Favre
I don't know if he really would be an inch taller, and favre was measured 6ft 2.
berta said on 28/Apr/18
yeah a guy like ryan would have easy atleast half inch on a guy like paul walker. ryan is a berely 189 guy and walker was barely 187 guy
Canson said on 25/Apr/18
I don’t know Rob. Denzel Washington has a footwear advantage on him and he’s still only a couple inches taller. Maybe Viper has a point that Reynolds could be 6’1” range at a low. But that would signal a weak 6’2” more likely than a solid or even strong 6’1. He would likely fall 6’1.5-6’2 zone if he’s anywhere in the 6’1” range
said on 23/Apr/18
Rob, who do you think is taller? TJ Miller or Ryan Reynolds?
For me, they look pretty close, I think a measurement would determine who had a slight edge.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 21/Apr/18
I'm pretty confident that Reynolds would edge out Walker.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 20/Apr/18
I couldn’t really tell if TJ Miller was taller than him in Deadpool, and they seem to be roughly the same in photos. Could both get upgraded from 6’2”?
Canson said on 19/Apr/18
@Junior: if he’s 6’2” range at a low it’s likely, at least in my opinion, no higher than a flat 6’2”. It’s hard to see 6’1” range to be honest. However, if he claimed it, it’s possible. It just shows that other celebs here are overlisted. Most are by half inch but some as high as 2” from what I’ve seen
viper said on 19/Apr/18
He may look it, but even he admits he's 6-1 range
said on 19/Apr/18
Rob, many people writing comments on your website want to argue about a downgrade for Paul Walker to 6'1.75" or upgrade for Ryan Reynolds to 6'2.25". What is your opinion Rob? Do you think Reynolds could be taller than Walker?
I don't think the figures are unreasonable...Walker could look a weak 6ft 2 at times, while Reynolds can look a solid 6ft 2 range too...
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Apr/18
Not that i want upgrade him but because it's how he look with those guys listed 6'1-6'2 look next to him. Look at him on 6'4.25" Michael Strahan show he look 6'3, also with 6'2.25-6'2.5" Patrick Warburton making Warburton look under 6'2 and 6'1.5" Nathan Fillion look over an inch shorter than him, Reynold low ball about an inch is possible. Also in Hitman's Bodyguard look 6'3 with 6'2 Richard E. Grant if people don't believe it go watch The Proposal while he look about half inch shorter than 6'3.5" Craig t nelson face to face. Reynold easily look 190cm everywhere.

@Viper: he could be 6’1 range if that’s what he was listed in the movie (6’1 170).

Hey Rob. In Criminal (2016) It says that he is 6'1" and 170lb in the opening scene. Maybe this could be included at the top
Ben said on 10/Apr/18
I don't think Ryan even said that he's 6'3", he doesn't seem to want to claim taller than 6'2", he even prefers to just say " 6'1"-6'2" ". Because he fear that a lot of stars won't want to work with him if he's too tall.
I'm grateful that he's honest about his height and shows people just how tall 6'2" really is!
said on 9/Apr/18
Why did he claim 6'3" all of a sudden?
He possibly did, but there's always a chance when reporting a height quote that on some occasions a figure has been written or transcribed wrongly.

Ryan Reynolds is over 6’2”. However, I would rule out 6’2.5” because he was shorter than Jeff Daniels (who had a footwear ‘disadvantage.’)

A legit 6-2 guy doesn't say 6-1-2 to the press.

IMO 6-1.5 makes the most sense. He was listed at 6-1 and he says he's 6-1-6-2
Read the description above, he also was quoted saying 6ft 3 for his height....it's like Walker, he has quotes 6ft 3, 2 1...sometimes newspapers can make mistakes, sometimes an actor inflates.
Josh8 said on 26/Mar/18
Rob, I think Ryan is 6'3, 6'2.5 at least. In an interview with Letterman who claims to be 6'2 you can see Reynolds is visibly taller. Also, in pictures with Samuel jackson and Hugh Jackman who both claim 6'2 also. Hugh jackman is listed as 6'1.5 here on celebheights and Reynolds is at least an inch taller than jackman, probably more to be honest.
berta said on 13/Mar/18
anywhere beetween 6 foot 2 1/8- 6 foot 2 1/2
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 4/Mar/18
Ryan Reynolds: 6’2 1/2”
Paul Walker: 6’1 3/4”-7/8”
I think that Paul Walker would have edged me out by just a small fraction if I were to have met him while he was still alive, considering how he generally appeared to be roughly 187-188 CM tall in the Fast and the Furious movies.
viper said on 1/Mar/18
I will say he physically looks taller than Paul Walker
viper said on 1/Mar/18
Yeah, but he wasn't mega famous until the mid 2000s. I remember between Van Wilder and 2005 or so he was listed at 6-1 on a few sites.
There was a site dedicated to 2 guys a girl and a pizza place where he was listed at 6-1

He's been famous since he was like twelve and a leading man since he was around 20. Come on. He slouches constantly, I just don't think he cares.

It doesn't make sense to me that he would add the 6-1. Plus Paul Walker saying he's 6-1
Canson said on 27/Feb/18
@Viper: maybe he’s a full 6’2” but no higher. He looks a proper 6’2” to be honest. I don’t believe the 6’2+ that I’m seeing here but I can believe 6’1” range may have been before he grew. But what you said is true a lot of guys do that they claim higher when they get famous like Derek Theler was 6’4 and 6’5 now 6’6.5. Many others like Boris Khodjoe was listed 6’2 by his modeling agency then 6’3 etc. looks max 6’3”
viper said on 26/Feb/18
Here's the thing. I remember him being listed at 6-1 on different sites before he really got famous. Also he says he's 6-1-6-2. I gotta think he's 6-1 range.

I think a solid 6’2. He’s not less than that I doubt

Rob, is 6ft3 out of bed a possibility?
I think he's guy who never drops below 6ft2
Yes, it's always been possible...
as I added a month ago, Ryan himself has claimed 6ft 3 too now, so he's a growing lad.

hm wierd he have claimed many height now. to me its like this:
186 0% chanse
187 10 %
188 25 %
188,5 30 %
189 35 %
I believe he and joel kinnaman is the same excact height. Ryan is One of the guys that are underlisted on the site. I can never believe anythin under 6 foot 2 1/8
Dream(5'9.5") said on 19/Feb/18
Also, I’m not saying Reynolds is under 6’2”. Of course, I would guess him over 6’2” for sure.
What I’m saying is that, 189 cm ‘at lowest’ is absurd for Reynolds. That would put him at 190 cm at mid-afternoon.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 1/Feb/18
Going by that logic, Roland Mann would have been a 6’4” peak and my uncle would be 6’4.5” peak (both whom are impossible except for maybe peak Roland).
Junior Hernandez said on 1/Feb/18
No offence but i think some people were really silly thought of Reynolds flat 6'2 or abit under 6'2 just because he claim 6'1-6'2 and consistently saying 6'2 it doesn't add up the truth. He could have last measure properly at early 20s and grow almost half inch taller. He look everywhere 189cm with co stars even not a full 6'2.5" there is a full chance he is 6'2.4" lowest precisely. If Reynolds stay flat 6'2 that only prove Jimmy Fallon are nothing over 5'11, Hugh Jackman 6'1, Nathan Fillion 6'1, Jeff Bridges 6'0 and Denzel Washington 5'11.25" flat. 6'2.5" was still 90% possible range than just 6'1.75"-6'2.25" seriously. Maybe few mm shorter than legit 6'2.5" Brandon Routh that will be less than 20 percentage.
