Damn! Sam Worthington looks 6’2” in most of his films.
berta said on 22/May/18
i think he is 1/4 under this listing.
Darius said on 6/Jan/18
I would go with @Rising-174cm on this one.
I think Sam Worthington is 5'8.5" or 175cm .
Darius said on 6/Jan/18
I would say 5'8.5".

The actor is best known for being the voice actor as Captain Alex Masom in CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS.
Slim said on 19/Sep/17
The full 5'8", anything more or less is wrong.
Rising - 174 cm
said on 4/Aug/17
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.
Tom said on 28/Jul/17
@delancey They look near identical, how are you seeing that Anton was taller?
RisingForce said on 26/May/17
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.
said on 18/May/17
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?

delancey said on 14/Apr/17
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.
Joshua Ibarra said on 6/Nov/16
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?
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?
Bond said on 17/Sep/11
Wow what a height.i have on 163 cm's.he is amazing.i love this guy and also JAMES BOND
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.
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.
Nameless said on 7/Jul/09
YEs He Have Stated his height as 6'2(1.88m).....HOw could I thrust him He Even Look Shorter Than CHristian BAle Abt 4 inches......
Midget said on 23/Jun/09
I think Rob has him pegged right. 5'9' all day long.
said on 21/Jun/09
I think some of those pictures are a bit unfair. He's closer to the 5ft 9 guy than it at first seems. The boots atre chunky but I see no evidence of massive heals.Click HereClick Here
JJ said on 20/Jun/09
5'8 for a girl is average now? More like 4 inches above average. That's like saying 6'2 for a guy is average.
elio said on 19/Jun/09
5'8" for a girl is NOT average. It's at least 3 inches above average. Probably the equivalent of a 6'1" guy. Presumably you're overestimating your own height if you feel average for a girl... in which case Sam Worthington might actually be about 4 inches taller than you despite his 'flaw'.
mazza said on 18/Jun/09
even during terminator myself (and soon becoming a smitten kitten),i was questioning his height even with the films dodgy height comparisons.im 5ft 8 myself, being i'd say average for a girl if he stood next to me i'd consider him to be short,with the info compared here,he's getting a 5.8/9 title it seems.though guess everybody has a flaw,dammit
Flyboy said on 15/Jun/09
There is no way he is 5'11". Right now, he should count himself lucky if he manages to get a full 5'8" rating (because there's a strong argument to be made that he's shorter than that...)
said on 15/Jun/09
Look at Click Here
He's 5'11. Not so bad.
Clive said on 12/Jun/09
I have seen Christian Bale in real life, he is definitely about 6'1", the idea that Bale is less than 6 feet is silly. In Terminator Salvation its really hard to tell how tall Worthington really is, in some shots he looks a bit bigger than Anton Yelchin, in other shots he looks smaller. I will guess he is 5'9" tall and not any bigger.
Josh.J said on 12/Jun/09
his next big outing is james cameron's "Avatar". i can already assure everyone that it will be impossible to judge his height in the movie. as a human he's in a wheelchair and as an "avatar" he'll be CGI'd to be a giant.
ed said on 10/Jun/09
he has a big round head. wonder if that makes people look bigger in film?
said on 9/Jun/09
just saw terminator salvation and wow he is hot but that movie totally made him look way taller. i came on here just to check because in some shots of the movie he looked really tall and in others he seemed shorter. he has a great body and the movie did a wonderful job of portraying him as a powerhouse of a man. despite his rather short appearance especially in this pic at the premier. i give him anywhere from 5'7.5-5'9Click Here
said on 9/Jun/09
I doubt it has much to do with Yelchin's height; I think that Worthington is just a shorter guy made to look as big and tall as he possibly can. They did a good job of that in TS. Here, take a look at this photo: Click Here
1. They are more or less level pegging. No angle will ever be perfect on this site, but this photo's angle is certainly in the better 50% of photos.
2. Yelchin's head and shoulders are lowered; if he were to stand tall, he'd probably be beating Worthington in that photo. And this is despite...
3. Worthington's boots are munsters. If you don't think he's getting a height boost from them, then look again. Notice how Worthington is *leaning forward* in that photo from a stationary position. That is only possible if you have some leverage at ground level, ie lifts in the boots.
In the film, I got the impression that Marcus Wright was considerably taller and bigger than the young Kyle Reese; I think everybody got that impression. But that photo alone should tell us that, actually, they were using the magic of cinema to make Worthington look more physically imposing than he actually is.
There are no photographs showing Worthington taller than, or even as tall as, Yelchin. We have seen him beaten on many occasions, convincingly so by the 6' Christian Bale. And this is all despite Worthington sporting nothing but grade A munsters in the movie and at premieres. To be honest, I'd be tempted to put him in the 5'7" region, perhaps 5'7.25 - 5'7.75" or something.
JJ said on 8/Jun/09
Rob, I think it's clear this guy isn't 5'9. 5'8 tops, could be 5'7 in the evening.
JJ said on 7/Jun/09
Great, we have another Tom Cruise on our hands.
SAM said on 7/Jun/09
more like 5ft8, hes about 1-2 inches shorter than anton yeltchin.
Flyboy said on 7/Jun/09
The only thing we can be certain of is that Bale is taller than Yelchin, and Yelchin is taller than Worthington (and yes, we can be certain of that -- those premiere pictures are conclusive from all angles). The photos would put Bale at 6', Yelchin at 5'9 and Worthington at 5'7.
I'm as shocked as anybody else. They really did make him look like a big guy in Terminator. I think Rob is probably right to err on the side of caution for now, though I'd take the middle ground of 5'8. Worthington's going to become a big star, so we'll soon have more photos to get a more substantial answer.
bobo said on 4/Jun/09
I think he is below 5.9 as well. THose boots are just too big
Josh.J said on 3/Jun/09
i think mr worthington needs a downgrade. he's clearly shorter than anton yelchin who is 5'9 on this site. so either worthington's 5'7.5~5'8 or yelchin is 5'10. also bale does look 5'11~5'11.5 to yelchin. i dont see 3 inches between them.
bobo said on 1/Jun/09
Joe: How old are you? Maybe read the thread before coming on here and letting us know your thoughts. Yes, we know Bale is taller than Worthington, we have all seen the pics aswell, but the size of Worthington's boots plus the difference beteeen him and Bale point to lower than 5.10 for Worthington.
Bale is contracted to three Batman films. The chances of him not doing the role are next to non existent. He would be sued by everyone and anyone who have a vested interest in him reprising the role. He has stated he wants Nolan to direct but he has no real say. The studio might want to think about keeping him happy for marketing purposes but he is 100% committed to a third film.
Joe said on 1/Jun/09
I saw a photo Sam Worthington standing next to Christian Bale at the premiere of
Terminator Salvation. Bale was clearly taller than Worthington. My guess is that he is 5'10" tall. I heard a rumor that he might replace Bale in the sequel to the Dark Knight. I really hope not, Bale really fits the Batman character better than any actor out there. He did to Batman what Christopher Reeve did to Superman.
bobo said on 1/Jun/09
flash of eden.: Yes but that was in the film, Sunshine. This is a real life picture, you know, off a movie set. Which do you take as more valid? A close up on a film or a long shot at a premiere?
JJ said on 31/May/09
5'8 would be my guess. He was the only good part about the new Terminator movie.
flash_of_eden said on 31/May/09
Anything under 6' for Christian Bale is ludicrous. As for Sam Worthington, he seemed quite a bit taller than 5'9" Anton Yelchin in Terminator.
Rick said on 30/May/09
Geez, on this very picture, Bale is 6' and Sammy boy is straining to look 5'9 with enormous boots.
bobo said on 30/May/09
I am confused. How does this pic show Bale's height? Height is relative. We are debating Worthington's height and so any 'proof' is transient and open to change. If we accept Worthington is around 5.9, then Bale is around 6 foot. If you are stating that Bale is below 5.11 then Worthington becomes 5.8 and below.
Danyel said on 27/May/09
Geez...on this very picture, we have proof that Bale is not 6´at all but rather 5´11´´and have you noticed Worthington´s boots??
bobo said on 27/May/09
he is Cruise height. But the hypocritical press like him, so for now all we are seeing is stuff about how 'stocky' and 'burly' he is. Wait till he is a major star and then they will turn on him and you will start to see the 'not as tall as you think' comments start to creep in and then outright hostility with 'Shorty" comments. They completely ignored his shoes on this premiere. Fine by me. As soon as he makes a couple of successful films you will Sly Stallone levels of hatred from the press. ****s.
said on 27/May/09
Here is a picture of Worthington, Yelchin and Bale standing flat on the ground with their feet visible and boy... he's pretty short:Click Here
HUGE, duck-like shoes though. LOL
OliTheMan said on 26/May/09
lol.. hes listed as 6"1"
danny said on 26/May/09
damn he looked he really huge in terminator
Dr. Staure said on 25/May/09
Those boots are huge!!! That chunky look is soo 3rd Quarter 99.... Nobody is wearing that look right now ( except sammy the bull).... especially with a suit that has tappered legs... Its not as bad as what Downey has sported but its not stealth either. The press seems to like him so he has not received alot of Shorty comments....I must say that with his " lean buff build" he does wear his height well... but i havent seen alot of pics on this guy.... but for now I see : strong 5'7 1/2 (barefoot) ... Standing on Chevy Suburans (Demolition Boots) I see a 5'9 1/2 -5'10
RisingForce said on 24/May/09
he wears huge boots, but nobody and i mean nobody can challenge robert downey jr. for biggest footwear. whether it be the stripper heels, the 2 inch lifts/sneaker combo or the chunky platforms, downey jr. will always wear the biggest shoes.
anyway my first guess on worthington is 5-8. even with boots he was atleast 5 inches shorter than 6-2 james cameron who was wearing dress shoes. with big boots he looked possibly 3 inches shorter than 6-0 christian bale. he can pass for this 5-9 listing if you ignore his boots.
Josh.J said on 23/May/09
he is definitely shorter then anton yelchin WITH those monster boots. must be in the 5'7, 5'8 range. oh and if yelchin is legit 5'9 then bale is more like 5'11
friggin' hot said on 22/May/09
he's friggin' hot. and he looks dwarfed by christian bale (6') no way is he 5'9"
bobo said on 21/May/09
Rising: Its because I love you, baby.
Antonio: Yeah i agree. He may be rejuvenate this site since we all solved Pitt and Stallone's height.
Antonio said on 20/May/09
Since he has only been around since 2000, there is just not a lot of photos of him. The more I look at the existing pics, the smaller he gets.
His shoes are enormous. He may be another Robert Downey Jr. He might be closer to 5-7. Time will tell.
RisingForce said on 20/May/09
i'm laughing at bobo's obsession with me. you say i upgrade everyone, but i have pitt at the exact same height rob does and i have vin diesel 1/4 inch below rob's listing. it's pretty funny that you feel the need to mention me in every single post you make.
Brad said on 20/May/09
He's getting Penn'd to Hirsch with Bale. 5' 8".
said on 20/May/09Click Here
rob this photo is taken head on.. not much, if any tilt
he does look pretty diminutive.. i'm surprised, his appearance kinda gives u the impression of a huge guy
said on 19/May/09
You are usually spot on. But not here. Sam is absolutely dominated by Bale, who some argue is a weak 6 footer. And Sammy the Bull is wearing huge footwear. I wonder why? And I still see more than 4 inches between he and Bale. This guy is barely 5'7".
[Editor Rob: 5ft 9 flat is about it for now, some of the photos are tilted which might make it appear more. I'm not as convinced as you.]
Anonymous said on 19/May/09
under 5'9", but over 5'8"
bobo said on 19/May/09
Thats what is so annoying about the celeb game. Its peopled by real idiots. They have a website stating he is 6 foot 2 and show pics oh him 4 inches shorter than Bale and the same height as the old lady.
So what, Bale is 6.foot 6 now is he? And thats one tall old Lady. And according to them, McG is going on 6 foot 5.
I think 5.8.
Who stated 6.foot 2? its nuts.
Wait, it might well be Rising.
I can't wait for that guy to get on here. He will take an average of everyone's else guess. And then add exactly one inch.
said on 18/May/09
That was my post above, estimating 5-8 ... maybe!
I can't get over his shoes here. It looks like he's standing on a couple of Chevy Suburbans!Click Here
said on 18/May/09
Tim, your right! I found this. Click Here
That;s such a joke. I'm sure some will even give him the benefit of the doubt and compromise with a 6' estimate. He isn't remotley close to 6'. I haven't looked at many photos, but my initial estimate is 5-8. I'll be checking him out more closely.
said on 18/May/09
Rob. I think its time for either two things:
1. We get Rising Fore in here to argue Worthington is 5.11 or exactly one inch taller than everyone else says he is
2. You Go with the evidence and downgrade him to 5.8
[Editor Rob: some of those photos are tilted a bit, there's a bunch of them on getty I looked at, there was a couple near james cameron worth looking at.]
said on 18/May/09
I agree with Amanda. Without his boots he is shorter than Anton Yelchin Click Here
He does have a great built which makes him look taller. He might be a strong 5ft8, but could be even shorter.
said on 18/May/09
alright make it DEFINITELY not 176... Click Here
look at his footwear aswell? i realize his head is tilted but cmon that is not a 176 tall man
Anonymous said on 18/May/09
this guy is not even 176 rob.. clearly shorter than 5 9 Anton Yelchin in all the premiere photos
Random Person said on 17/May/09
Hmmm, 5'8 or 5'9..not sure on this guy.
Amanda said on 16/May/09
I was just looking at the pics of the Terminator premiere and even with the boots he is still shorter than Anton who is billed as only 5
bobo said on 15/May/09
have a look at the terminator premiere pics. He has major builder's boots on and he still looks 5.9 next to 6ft Bale. He is smaller than ALL of his female co stars. Thats not a 5.10 guy. he looks great on screen though. Good luck to him.
Anon said on 15/May/09
Saw pictures from the Terminator Salvation premiere and he looks considerably shorter than 6 foot Bale. At least 2-3 inches shorter. He must have been wearing heels to be face-to-face with Bale in those shots in the movie. Ah, movie magic.
tim said on 10/Mar/09
whoa, i swear i saw him credited as 6'2 at one point. i didn't completely beleive it but i would beleive 6 foot maybe a little over.
i was a bit confused when i saw macbeth about his height as he did look quite short. but i reckon he's about 5'11.5 as he is shown as a bit shorter than bale.
Erica said on 18/Dec/08
In Somersault next to 5'8" Abbie Cornish he did not look very tall. 5'9" ish.
OutBenchThis said on 22/Sep/08
Rob, he did an Australian film where I live..I'll have to ask some friends who worked with him what they thought his height was. I was under the impression he's around 5'9" but I'll get back to you.
Tru Slide said on 10/Aug/08
He's like the shortest one in Macbeth in all of the scenes. Even his wife is as tall as him. He's 5'10 or could be less. He must be wearing lifts to be eye to eye with CB.
balegirl said on 4/Aug/08
where does 5'10 come from? i just saw him in a still from T4 and he is taller than CB.
AA said on 10/Feb/07
6'2"??? How can this be??

Hmmm, I too thought hew as 6 feet tall.
