Hey rob since sala is a stuntman do u think he’ll lose over an inch of height by the time he’s 70? Let’s say he’s still doing stunts by say past age 50?
Editor Rob
It increases the risks. Some injuries can have a cascading effect on the body.
Sean Forrest said on 15/May/23
I seen him a few times including last Sunday Telford comic con. My 5'11 3/8ths brother also had a photo with him last year. He looked shorter than David Tennant in person.Looked more around 6'0.25-6'0.5, he hasn't aged much at all neither at 46 years old.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/23
Fraction below 6ft1 at worst, safely over 6ft though...
Emil said on 27/Nov/22

He barely looks 4 inches taller than you here. Did he look 6'1 in person?
Editor Rob
Over 6ft in person, however maybe I have overestimated him a fraction.
Jolapizza 6'0 1/2 said on 11/Oct/22
He looks a small fraction over 6'0 here. But maybe that he's losing height that is not visible in the frame of the photo.
Jimmy_ESB_182 said on 23/Jul/22
Looks more 6'0"
Andrea said on 13/Aug/21
Rob, have you seen him with Mortensen and Urban? Click Here Looking barely taller than the former and noticeably shorter than the latter. Of course he probably is dropping more height, but still 6'1 does look too much (just like it does with you)...
Editor Rob
maybe posture not so great, but 184 for him may well be closer.
Nik Ashton said on 14/Sep/20
I wonder how tall he thinks Rob is!
cmillz said on 14/Sep/20
Looks under 6’1 here
berta said on 13/Sep/20
beside other cast memebers from lord of the rings he doesnt look taller than 184 and in many photos barely 6 feet. maybe the guy is no taller than 184
berta said on 19/May/20
mzybe 184,5 guy or at best 185. i cant see the full 6´1
Mm said on 20/Aug/19
Rob’s not standing straight, and the beret Sala is wearing gives the impression of him being 6’1. He’s no more than 6’0. LOL @ 6’2.
Nik said on 11/Nov/18
He doesn't look 6'0"!
Bard said on 6/Jan/18
Looks 6 foot here
rob.with.graditude said on 16/Jul/17
i guessed 5'11 never would guess over 6ft from the pic
berta said on 13/Jul/17
i think 184 is to loow but i think either this listed height ore 1/4 inch under it.
Redwing said on 17/Nov/16
Probably that tall or 184.5 cm tall, another dude with a massive frame
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/16
Rob, which of these?

A) 188cm/186cm
B) 187.5cm/185.5cm
C) 187cm/185cm
D) 186.5cm/184.5cm
E) 186cm/184cm
Editor Rob
C with chance of lower, rather than a B/higher value.

Nice photo
OneNamePlease said on 23/Jun/15
5'11 for the photo
Mathew said on 8/Apr/15
Looking more than just an inch shorter than Shane Rangi here Click Here
Bean said on 24/Feb/15
Doesn't look 6'1" here. 5'11.5"-6'0"?
broly said on 9/Jan/15
I would say somewhere between 5/11 and 6/0 just doesn't look like he's in the six footer range.
Tim181 said on 18/Apr/14
I look this with 5'8" guys somehow.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Dec/13
Similiar to Karl Urban. Both look 184-185cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Dec/13
I thought near 6ft2 initially, but now I think even 6ft1 is questionable
Yaspaa said on 12/Sep/13
Sauron? Wasn't he like 20 feet tall?
LG69 said on 8/Sep/13
If Rob's shoes are equal with his, I'd say he's 6'0 even. The beret makes him 6'1".
Jack said on 30/Aug/13
He might "only" be 6'0" but I would think twice before saying it to his face
thicke said on 7/Aug/13
184 is fair
Larc 74in said on 13/Jul/13
Seems struggling with 6'1, maybe he's a bit shorter than that.
Gray said on 6/Jul/13
When he played sauron, he definitely looked 6 ft 1.5 to 6 ft 2 range.
Tim said on 5/Jul/13
Roughly middle of eyebrows up is 4 inches for the average male head, so this guy looks 5 ft 11 3/4, probably a tad more but still under 6 ft
lelman said on 1/Jun/13
Doesn't even look 6 foot in this photo. My girlfriend is 5'8", I'm 5'11" and there's about the same height between us as there is between you guys. 5'11" - 5'11.5"
jdgreger said on 12/May/13
Hes under 6'0. 5'11 range Id say because Rob isnt standing as straight as him.
dicksock said on 7/Mar/13
He looks 6' to me.
Stephen said on 8/Jan/13
solid 6'0 - 184 cm is fair
Trent said on 31/Dec/12
Looks a strong 6'.
tom said on 11/Aug/12
6-1 or 6.2" never!! 6-0 tops,why do there always do the silly trick of fake height???!!!
Danimal said on 10/Aug/12
No way is he 6'1". No way. Under 6'0".
Drew said on 16/Jun/12
184 maximum, 183 if Rob stands taller.
Hob said on 11/Jun/12
he inflate 2inch. solid 6'0 guy!
FACE said on 1/Feb/12
He looks closer to 6ft (183cm) his eyeline is around 5ft 8
ChiasmataX said on 30/Jan/12
Actually if Rob stood straight like Mamun, Sala wouldn't look 185cm. 183cm is closer.
steven said on 20/Jan/12
on top pic look like rob leaning down a tap bit. i would't go over 6'0 for sala.
peyman said on 14/Jan/12
are u serious rob ??? 'lol' he is no more than 183 , this is exactly my difference with 5'8" guys and u know I'm just a weak 6ft
ChiasmataX said on 12/Dec/11
Accurate listing. No way he's 188cm like he claimed.
Ace said on 9/Dec/11
He looked about this range when he was featured on Deadliest Warrior representing the Maori. He was near 3 inches shorter than 6'4ish Geoff Desmoulin
Chameleon said on 10/Nov/11
Rob could he be 182cm....
Editor Rob
with bad posture he could look that range
Physics Enemy said on 7/Nov/11
5' 11.5". Rob's slouching bigtime here.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 1/Nov/11
in the pics i dont see him over 182... maybe he slouches!
Rikashiku said on 22/Oct/11
Sala next to 6'4" Lawrence Makoare and 5'7"? Dominic Monaghan.
Click Here

5'9-5'10" Viggo, 6'0" looking Sala and 6'1" Karl Urban who might be wearing heeled shoes.

HE could be 6'0.5"
LAN Jiao said on 11/Oct/11
6'1 or 6"0.5 i don see 6'1over even other picture. But his build was massive like 220-230. Karl urban was not 6'1 though, urban was shorter 0.8" by sala.
Legend said on 10/Oct/11
Looks 6 feet to me.
Chameleon said on 10/Oct/11
Man this guy is massive. But heightwise looks about 6ft range.....
Josh B said on 8/Oct/11
6'1 maximum considering how much Rob is lowering his head.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jul/11
187cm Rob?
Editor Rob
there's photos I've seen of him and karl urban which I don't think help with his own claim
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jun/11
6ft1.5 or 6ft2
Cranberries said on 6/Jun/11
USYD, you're probably not used to being around tall people (6'2"+). I'm closer to 6'4" for most of the day, and I wear tennis shoes too (almost 6'5" with them on); I always UNDERESTIMATE people. Perhaps people do fluff height like crazy, because guys who claim to be 6'0" and 6'1" usually look absolutely TINY to me. I UNDERestimate them consistently. Next to Mamun, Sala may look big, but next to a guy who's 6'3" or taller, he wouldn't so much.
Cranberries said on 5/Jun/11
"I told you guys he was a very big dude ! I was 100 kg in that picture !"
Holy cr$* Supermun; 100kg at 5'8"? Most 5'10" guys who weigh that much are monstrous tanks! I guess Sala must be like 240+ lbs...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jun/11
I think he's 187cm. Weight? Somewhere between 105-110kg? He'd make an ideal rugby backrow forward
PHL said on 3/Jun/11
size 15, 16 feet WTF!
Daaaamn! said on 2/Jun/11
He's a big dude... huge head, huge hands, broad shoulders... quite a presence.
Legend said on 1/Jun/11
6 feet flat.
James said on 31/May/11
Big feet for his height. I knew a 15 year old guy back in school who was 6'2.5 and he had to wear size 15 or 16 feet.
Mamun said on 31/May/11
I told you guys he was a very big dude ! I was 100 kg in that picture !


Cranberries said on 31/May/11
I don't know if it helps, but Sala Baker seems a big dude regardless of his height. Look at the size of them feet:
Click Here
...looks like a size 13 at LEAST.
Matt said on 27/May/11
Definitely not 6' 1'' base don this pic...maybe 6' if hes lucky
Lenad said on 24/May/11
I doubt hes over 6'1
Mamun said on 22/May/11


Moke said on 21/May/11
Nothing over 6'1 for that guy. Mamun reaches the top of his eyebrows so it's even kind to say there's 12cm left.
truth said on 21/May/11
mamun is 5ft6 and this guy is 5ft11. Cmon im 5ft9.5 and legit 5ft8 guys dont have short stature like this guy.

Editor Rob
mamun is a good 5ft 8 man, that's the real truth!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/May/11
Up straight he's 187cm or even 188cm
Legend said on 19/May/11
His big head gives him more height.
Bill said on 19/May/11
People People!!! Let's not forget how even a slight lean can rob you of 1-3 inches. Tall guys regularly slouch to shake hands and pose for pictures!! Therefore, imagine SuperMamun standing straight up next to Sala (who is straight up) and I see 6'1.5 or 6'2. I really do, and I'm 6'3 by the way.

"rob89 says on 16/May/11
I have no idea how some of you could possibly see him at 6'2" in this picture, even 6'1" is too tall for him. He barely looks 6' even here, maybe he could squeeze out another half inch if he fully straightened up (his posture isn't that bad really, not much worse than Mamun's), to hit 6'0.5", but that's it. As Larc said, genuine 6'1 - 6'2 guys should look clearly taller than this next to someone who's 5'8."

Mamun is a strong 5'8" (5'8.25"). Mamun even admitted that he and his friends felt 6'1"-6'2". If this guy straightened out, he's in the 6'1"-6'2" range. I think Rob has him nailed, although I suspect 186cm.
James said on 17/May/11
yeah i agree with rob89 there are factors you have to take into consideration in this photo such as Sala being closer to the camera and maybe hair advantage as well?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/May/11
Rob Muman sees 6"2 as a possibility...what's your verdict?

Editor Rob
I'm not as sure if he's really that tall.

The Horse of FUNK said on 16/May/11
I see 6'1", potentially a strong 6'1", which is probably where his 6'2" claims come from. If he held his legs together and straightened his body out, he might actually be very close to 6'2". I'd give him 186cm 6'1.25" for safe measure, Rob.
Cranberries (6 ft. 3.25 evening) said on 16/May/11
He's not a little guy, but I don't think he's over 6' at any time during the day.
Larc 6 ft 1.75 in said on 16/May/11
No way 6'2, I'm almost 6'2 and I look way taller than him next to my legit 5'8 friend. A legit 6'2 usually has a 5'9 eyelevel and the eyelevel of Baker seems to be 5'7.25-5'7.5.

I see 6'0 for sure, but nothing more.
Mathew said on 15/May/11
The dude looks like a weak 6 footer here. Nowhere near 6'2" in the pic.
James said on 15/May/11
i think he looks a solid 6'1
Truthman said on 15/May/11
I can see barely 4 inches including hairs, typical height lier.
Cranberries (6 ft. 3.25 evening) said on 14/May/11
He really looks like to rounds to 6'2".
James said on 14/May/11
Yeah he could pass for 6'2 but he is very bulky in size so that could make him look taller than he is.
Mamun said on 14/May/11
6' 2" could be possible my friends as he did look pretty impressive to me ! We almost had the same amount of foot wear ! He was a very nice guy though !


Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/May/11
Rob what is the likelihood of his 6"2 claim?

Editor Rob
maybe supermamun can remember if he thought sala could be 6ft 2?
Mamun said on 13/May/11
Ok your Highness I will sent it to you again my friend !



Editor Rob
can you please try it again as I just checked, include the word celebheights in the subject incase something is happening to the email. Thanks
Mamun said on 12/May/11
Hey ROB , I have a picture with this guy that I had sent you ! It would be cool if you post it !



Editor Rob
I checked my email and saw your email dating '10/13/08', but the aolphotos in a lot emails 'expire' and I can't see them anymore. I save most of them of course, but I cannot find sala's on my computer.

John Baker said on 10/May/09
ummm your all wrong... Hes 6ft 3 i know as i am his little brother who is 6ft 2.

but he has the biggest feet for someone of that height.

hes size 15 i think now.
johnny said on 8/Aug/07
he is 6'2" i know it he's a friend of mine,he really is.
antron said on 22/May/07
He looks at least 2in. taller than Viggo Mortensen (around 5'11") when I'm watching the behind the scenes LOTR DVDs. He was mostly a stunt man. Played a Uruk Hai often, they were all at least 6'.
Bikagyura said on 27/Dec/05
I must have been imagining but I thought he seemed more like 5' 10 or something when I saw him at a trade fair. He sure seemed shorter than me (I must have been just over 5' 11 back then
