The full 5'8", anything more or less is wrong.
Rising - 174 cm

They do truly look identical - both 3" shorter than Bale - but Worthington only looks to reach 177, maybe 178 cm in at least 1.5" boots. He could look really short next to 6'4.5" Vince Vaughn in Hacksaw Ridge such as a scene where they're walking side by side where I was surprised they didn't try to minimize the height difference. He pretty much looks the exact same height as Mario Lopez when he doesn't have his boots and I'd guess Mario at 5'8.5" as well. I've always assumed he's a guy who claims 5'10" and not surprisingly, a quick search shows that's what he's given in the press.
From the NY Daily News:
But in real life, the “Avatar” star stands closer to 5-foot-10, and that’s being generous.

@delancey They look near identical, how are you seeing that Anton was taller?

I had him pegged 5'8.5" from the beginning because of those big boots he's always wearing, even with suits. He doesn't look shorter than Yelchin there to me, about the same, imo, but he is positioned closer to the camera and those boots would add near 1.5" even if he isn't wearing lifts. He has to have 1 cm footwear advantage minimum on Yelchin and Bale. 182 cm Bale still looks near 3" taller. I wouldn't rule out lifts for this guy at all either since those boots look quite conspicuous when he wears them with a suit on red carpets, so he does seem like a guy who wants to look taller. Yelchin listed here between 174 and 175 at 5'8.75" seems right and with Bale in that 5'11.5" to 5'11.75" range, 174 cm does seem spot on for Worthington considering footwear in that photo.

He was shorter than the late Anton Yelchin (photo below), who I think could have been anything from 5'8.25 to 5'9 flat.
Worthington is also wearing thick, clunky boots (which look suspicious) next to Yelchin's dress shoes and he's still shorter.
Definitely not the listed 175 cm you have here Rob, maybe 173 or 174 cm would be better?

I know Vince Vaughn is a tall guy but Worthington did not look 5'9 with him side by side in Hacksaw Ridge.
Watching his other films I've always suspected he was under 5'9.
5'8 range imo, though I wouldn't go lower. Needs a downgrade of at least 1 or 2 cm's Rob.
Balrog said on 29/Mar/17
He can look 174 quite often, but at times he does pull off the full 5'9". I think 5'8.75" would be spot on.
Matthew said on 19/Mar/17
Looked quite short in Hacksaw Ridge, 5'8.25 max
Revisionist said on 31/Jan/17
Maximus Meridius, too short as Bond? Craig is only 3cm taller. Hardy at the same 175cm seems to be in serious contention to play Bond. Are you telling me that he can't pull it off? Hardy would make a far superior Bond to someone much taller like Brosnan or Dalton.

Compared to a 5'10 Andrew Garfield in Hacksaw Ridge, Sam looks 2 inches shorter, making him 5'8.
Nick said on 9/Dec/15
Looks 5'9.25 with 5'6 listed Lara Bingle.
I'd go with either 175 or 176 cm.
Rodj said on 31/May/15
5'7 -5'8, he is a little more than Zoe Saldana.
Tom Wainwright 176.2 CM said on 15/Mar/15
He is 5'9.5
Or 176 CM
Met him in Australia, we both had flip flops on and we were exactly the same height.
LoveSam said on 8/Mar/15
I met him about 2 years ago. He's about 5'7" or maybe 5'8" in boots.' He is a really nice guy. I'm only 5'9" and seemed to be about 2 to 3 inches taller than him. Whatever. He is a really nice little guy!!!
LoveSam said on 7/Mar/15
I met him a couple of years ago. He's 5'7". Real nice guy.
jay said on 5/May/14
I think he's closer to 174 cm, maybe 175 out of bed but 174 for the rest of the day. Do you think that is possible Rob?
truth said on 27/Feb/14
romanspqr, actually more 5'8.25 than 5'7ish
He tends to slouch quite a bit though and his neck angles forward rather than upwards which doesn't help.
MD said on 30/Jan/14
It surprises me that you think that, Blaze. He actually pretty wide, up top, which if anything, would make him look shorter than what he is. He's always looked just below average height to me, and it's probably because of that wide torso. And, he may be actually below 5'9" by a little bit.
Blaze said on 27/Jan/14
He looks at least 6'0 in the movies.. Surprising
romanspqr said on 14/Jul/13
5'8 is generous enough. Prob a 5'7.75 but let's not split hairs. 5'8. I know him to wear elevators...looks about 5'10ish give or take .5 inch.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jul/13
Might be a fraction more, like 176cm
Alladin said on 25/Jun/13
He looks closer to 5,8 look at him standing next to 5,8.5 anton yalchin who's listed here as 5,8.5
BEASTMAN said on 8/Mar/13
5'9.75 (177 cm).
Gil said on 8/Feb/13
Looked quite short in "Wrath of the Titans." Maybe 5'8", and thats being generous.
Scott 5'11 said on 29/Jan/13
Couldn't tell from watching avatar (only film ive seen him in) as he hasn't the use of his legs in the film but I'd have guessed 5'9?

Silent d said on 22/Jan/13
5 foot 9.
Maximus Meridius said on 17/Jan/13
He is too short too be james bond that's for sure.
Hew said on 17/Jan/13
He looks nothing over 5'8 to me, more or less the same height as Anton Yelchin even with a solid footwear advantage..
Sam said on 6/Dec/12
Looks around 3 inches shorter than Christian Bale, so I think this height is a good call.
PrettyHateMachine said on 26/Oct/12
... in the interviews on the "Texas Killing Fields"-DVD he says he's 5'10''. He seems to be a nice guy, so maybe we should just believe him ;-)
joewhite31 said on 11/Oct/12
A friend of mine met & took a picture with him at NYC, I asked her how tall Sam was and she said: "He's definitely not a 6 footer, maybe 5'9 & very nice guy".
matt789 said on 30/Jul/12
5 ft 9 5 ft 10 its basically the same hes either one of those
Silent d said on 6/Feb/12
Definitely not 6 foot 2. Next to christian bale in salvation he looked 3inches shorter but he was the terminator. 5 foot 9 but movies make him look 6 foot because he plays muscular manly heroic roles.
A said on 14/Jan/12
Sam Worthington is between 5'9" and 5'10" although he looks about 10 feet tall in the movie Avatar. Awesome film, watch it. So sad though...
two said on 13/Jan/12
He look about 10 feet tall in Avatar but that was when he was in the alien body, lol
D said on 23/Nov/11
Yeah I got mine in the sale luckily. Shame they're now discontinued otherwise they might be a little more reasonable. I always saw Sam worthington at 5'8" looking at previous Premiere pics with these boots on. A weak 5'9" in the morning possibly.
said on 23/Nov/11
Those worthington boots are available here Click Here
They give a two inch boost without lifts. I had mine for 2 years now. Pretty good hard wearing work boots.
[Editor Rob: expensive boots, but I guess if you want a good inch boost above normal shoes they are one way to do it.]
Chris said on 15/Nov/11
@ 6'1 Josh.. Why LOL? He's a movie star, you still going to that bar? I bet he's not..
jake, 1.82 m said on 4/Oct/11
Bond are you sure 175 cm justifies a "Wow what a height" comment?
josh said on 18/Aug/11
im 6'1 he was 5' 8 lol short guy i meet him in a bar before he was big time actor
Simon Templar said on 18/Aug/11
Hey, Kashfia!!!! You really have an estraordinary sense of humor!! You make me laugh, buddy!!! If Sam W. stands 6´2": the earth is square, Paris is the capital of Burundi, the national sport in America is table tennis, and my name is ...JAMES BOND,...ja,ja,ja,.....what a funny guy, this Kashfia!!!
Mr. Tempus said on 12/Aug/11
i thought he was in the 5'9.75 - 5'10 range.
joewhite31 said on 9/Aug/11
His height stays at 5'9". The 6'2" listing is edited.
said on 22/Jul/11
How can anyone say this man is anywhere near 6'2? He'd have to have a serious growthspurt to be anywhere near that.
Heres Worthington with 6'4 Hulk Hogan. This aughta put that myth to rest.
Hulk is slightly hunched as well(he has terrible back issues), so Worthington would only come up to the bottom of his nose.
Natalie said on 22/Jul/11
Rubbish he's 6"2 did you see him next to Sigourney Weaver at the Avatar media stuff? Looked like a midget next to her. He's 5"9.
Kashfia said on 20/Jul/11
Sam is not 5'9". He is 6'2". He was 5'9" when he was 16 or 17. He hit puberty very late.
Maximus said on 5/Jun/11
He appears to be a legit 5'8" to 5'9"...not real tall but still a step above pacino, cruz,etc.
toby said on 19/May/11
Rob this guy needs a downgrade. He's 5'8.
Aly said on 26/Apr/11
5'9 is the most accurate, some places even have him at 5'10...his head is quite big and his legs quite stumpy so it makes him seem smaller than he is lol. On the other hand, he always plays this Gladiator type roles that always have him look quite tall (even though I thought he looked rather short in Titans)
Toby said on 1/Apr/11
He's 173 cm.
Canopus said on 11/Nov/10
5'9" sounds right. He is the same height as 5'7" Saldana who is probably 6' in her 6-7" heels. He is also only an inch shorter than 6' Christian Bale (6'1" in dress shoes) at the Terminator Salvation premiere. The pic on here Bale's head is distorted making him about 2" taller but in every other one where they are side by side, Bale is only an inch taller. So Sam in his boots is consistantly about 6' tall, someone said they give 1.6" height and we will say he has a lift inside which I will give about 1.5" - 3" total of added height meaning he's about 5'9". Plus he looked 2 inches taller while in flip flops (1/4") than Rove McManus, 5'7" in sneakers. Definitely not shorter than 5'8 but probably not taller than 5'10. By the way, I say 'cute little' as a term of endearment and not refering to someone's actual stature. 5'9 is fair.
AA said on 10/Feb/07
