175 for him

I think Simon can be funny, but I did skim through some of his twitter years back and thought some of the tweets were more mean-spirited than humorous.
I'm sure he did get measured 5ft 10, I believe him...it's just he has selective memory and forgot he didn't take his shoes off.


He doesn't look like a pleasant individual either, seems a bit bitter after looking at some of his tweets.

A-V-E-R-A-G-E!
Johan 185 cm said on 12/Apr/19
Cheeky isn't he? stands next to a well known 5'10" like Daniel Craig and looks easy 5 cm shorter. Is he paying you Rob to give him almost 5'9"? He looks max 5'8.5" and now I am being generous.

Simon could look 5'9" next to Mark, but generally he looks everywhere from 174 to 176 cm. Rob, I think your list is fine. Simon had some comedy roles during his career, please Rob add him to the comedians category.

I think this listing is about right as a low mark, Pegg might scrape 5'9 most of the day.
Shaun McCreary said on 23/Feb/19
I don't get how and why 5'8ers claim 5'10. Like when Statham claims 5'10 but then Scott Adkins whos legit 5'10 looks down on him.. Or Daniel Craig a 5'10 1/2er almost a 3 inch difference to Pegg. I'm 5'10 1/4 and 5'8-5-11 are alpha heights!
Sandy Cowell said on 14/Dec/18
In 'The World's End', a film about a pub crawl led by an anything but grown-up Simon Pegg, Simon looks the second tallest, next to Paddy Considine. Also starring are Eddie Marsan, Martin Freeman and Nick Frost as the school reunion mates, and Steve Oram, Michael Smiley, Rosamund Pike and many others, hence it's worth checking out!

I can settle for 5ft8.75 for Simon's lowest point of the day, so today I'll spin that round to 5ft9.

⭐️ Simon's character comes out with "What the f**k does WTF mean?"

Where has this funny prick, with dyed black hair and ginger stubble, been while his mates have been progressing through life? Not up to much, it would seem! 😂😂😂

Definitely worth a watch! 👍
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Nov/18
🤧 Correction Time! 🤧

That should have read 'Anyway, I have yet to meet a woman who THINKS height...'

😀👍 All better!
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Nov/18
@ Rob - Oh I see! Maybe he's telling everybody who reckons he's under 5ft10 to GUF OFF!

Silly really, as what's one-and-a-quarter inches when he's got what girls want in abundance - good humour. Making a fuss about a bit of height ISN'T so funny to womankind...

Most women accept guys as they are, and those who don't aren't worth battling for! Anyway, I have yet to meet a woman who think height is THAT important; certainly not important enough to turn somebody they like down because he is too short or too tall. 😀
Editor Rob
That is something many people unfortunately forget. Society (and the Internet especially) makes height seem far more important than it actually is.
Sandy Cowell said on 11/Nov/18
I just saw a clip from Simon Pegg's new film 'Slaughterhouse Rulez'. I noticed that Simon drives a car with a registration number containing the letters GUF! 😂😂😂

This morning, bright and early at 5 minutes past 5, Simon gets 5ft8.75!
Editor Rob
Simon might be taking names of those who dare guess him under 5ft 10...in fact he might whip out his medical certificate in the future and rub all our noses with it.
Monkey knees said on 3/Oct/18
One of my veeeeery early cook/chef type jobs was on "Spaced", when i was barely 18, i remember thinking how short Frost was. Seeing Pegg too i was a bit taken aback; 5ft 9in tops. Wears heels/lifts nowadays.
Mike5 said on 18/Sep/18
if he were a true 5’10 he’d be comfortably taller, and somewhat on par or slightly above, Paddy Consintine in the world’s end. However, if the angle is right he’s only marginally the tallest out of 4 very below average to average sized men.
Dmeyer said on 30/Aug/18
Cruise is about 172cm wearing a 4cm liké 3cm heels with small lifts hé is 176cm plus 1 cm better posture he looks similar to Simon but when in similar shoes Pegg look a solid 1in taller , Cruise near Pegg Can look anywere 171,5-175,5cm depending on footwear/posture
Michael Thatcher said on 12/Aug/18

Obvious floor advantage, but here's Pegg looking essentially Cruise's height, with a 6'1 Henry Cavill disadvantaged by the flooring. Pegg doesn't even get 5'8.5 from me
MrFish said on 5/Aug/18
Rob, how would his out-of-bed height compare with mine (176.7-177)?
Editor Rob
I think pegg probably measured in shoes 5ft 10, that's why he might have got upset. He genuinely is 5ft 10 (in shoes).

You might be very similar to his height out of bed.
Truthteller24 said on 2/Aug/18
He looks like 5'7 or being generous 5'8 I never seen him look even average height before EVER
Rourke said on 26/Jul/18
@Gracian
In one of those images, Daniels craig towers over Pegg and Nick Frost, with no noticeable footwear advantage. I’m probably gonna conclude that Pegg barely qualifies for more than 5’8.25 if Daniel Craig is 5’10.25. There’s also only a fraction between Pegg and 5’8 Frost
Rourke said on 23/Jul/18
Looks 5’8 flat sometimes, be lucky to get 5’9.5” seconds out of bed. Phaha
Monkey knees said on 15/Jul/18
My fave UK actor of all time... But his 5'10 insistence has always irked me. It's obvious he's on the "low" side of average at 5'8.5ish.
josh b said on 10/Jul/18
@Rob, sorry to clarify I meant the second photo, with Mendes.
Editor Rob
It has potential to be a small elevator, one that has like 1.1 inch sole and 0.5-0.75 lift. It's not as clear-cut...but since he had a taste for elevators when doing Quantum of Solace, maybe at times he wore them outwith filming.
josh b said on 9/Jul/18
Got to say Daniels shoes look a bit suspect there, very steep in the lace area wouldn't you agree Rob? ;)
As for Pegg, I'd love to meet him and claim the same as him lol
Editor Rob
I'm not sure if they are that suspicious, but with a wide angle lens and a few inches closer Daniel definitely looks 2 inches taller than you'd expect.
Gracian said on 3/Jun/18
I found a good comparison, here is a photo of Pegg with Daniel Craig: Click Here
And here is the photo of Mendes with Daniel Craig: Click Here
Rob, are you sure that Pegg and Mendes are the same height?
DreadPirateRoberts said on 14/Apr/18
I fear for your life Rob haha if he discovers this website and then finds out who the owner is. Well I just think he will be looking for you xD He was already pissed about people guessing him 5'9 but you gave him 5'8¾ oh boy
Editor Rob
Knowing the chances of him popping up at a convention again are slim, I think I'm ok ;)
Gracian said on 18/Mar/18
Simon is a funny guy, I would not take what he says about his height seriously 😂. I think, however, that he, Whoopi Goldberg, Rowan Atkinson, Jim Carrey, Bill Murray, Stephen Fry and a few other people whom I mentioned earlier could also find a place in the category of comedians: Click Here
Cameron Wright said on 12/Mar/18
Seems about right! Hey Rob I wanna ask you something! Love your site btw! Probably get asked this is quite a bit but I wanna know what’s our real height, morning, noon, or night? I’m 176.6 in the morning, 176-175 in the noon, and 174.6-174 at night. Also is it possible to grow an inch or more because I’m 19 and i hear that I might grow slightly more when I’m 20-21?
Thanks much! Love your site and YouTube channel a lot man and keep up the great work!
Editor Rob
The never-ending question...

Overall I think saying lunch height fits in well. We all have a height range from a peak morning to a low evening, so any height within that range is technically correct!

Pegg might be 5ft 9.5-9.75 out of bed and fall to a weak 5ft 9...that's my own estimate for him.
Junior Hernandez said on 6/Feb/18
Pegg is 5'8.5" and Frost legit 5'7.
JJJ said on 30/Jan/18
How can he possibly believe he's 5'10 when he's like half an inch taller than Tom Cruise who is constantly referenced by his short stature.
MrFish said on 16/Jan/18
Rob, would you say he and I are about the same height, at a fraction under 5ft 9in? Being that I wake between 9.5 and 9.7.
Editor Rob
Yes, you would likely be within a few mm's of each other...with Simon's small head, even if he were to fall to 174cm flat, he'd still probably not seem much different.
Promich said on 24/Dec/17
An inch or even two inches taller than Frost. I don't thinks he's remotely arrogant, at least what I've read about him (including his bio). Brilliant and witty, with excellent comic timing.

Dunno about footwear, but he doesn't look much taller than 5'7 Mark Hamill
Editor Rob: when he stands well I think he does seem near 2 inches taller, of course 3 inches is a bit of a joke, but Simon is a funny guy...at times, especially when he tries a Scottish accent, it's almost as funny as my American one.
Boba Fett said on 13/Dec/17
You should list Pegg as 5'6" just to annoy him even more, lol. Watched Hot Fuzz the other day, great film, shame Pegg's a bit of a twit in real life though.
Editor Rob: I don't want to give the man a panic attack or anything! But really, I can see 5ft 8.5 guesses for him, he can look that range at times, rarely does he ever look near his own 5ft 10 claim.

But then if he got measured at 10am in shoes, maybe he isn't far off the mark he claimed.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 13/Dec/17
I can understand him getting ticked off if someone describes him as 5'6", but not 5'9", when 5'9" is much closer to his true height.
Lmeister said on 12/Dec/17
Simon Pegg is roughly the same height as Jimmy Doherty(a very weak 5ft9). Clearly shorter than Jamie Oliver.
Boba Fett said on 11/Dec/17
Why is Pegg so insecure about his height? He's a successful actor, it's really sad seeing him get angry about being listed as 5'9", it's still average height for a man.
Editor Rob: you think Pegg is angry now, wait until he ends up listed as 5ft 8.5 😲
DMC said on 24/Nov/17
Just saw him on tv with Jamie Oliver who’s 5.10 he seemed 2 inches below Jamie ..

Googling this guy next to Daniel Craig makes peggs 5'10 claim laughable. Looks 2 inches taller.

I'd say he's 5'8.25". What an angry, bitter man, who's actually pissed that IMDb generously lists him at 5'9". He's a 5'8"er whether he likes it or not
Nev said on 8/Oct/17
Simon is about 4.5 inches shorter than David Schwimmer (6'1"), so Simon is around 5'8.5".
Cameron said on 20/Sep/17
@MJKoP It would be hilarious if Rob took a picture with him. I can imagine him raging if he found out he was about the same height as someone who claims 5'8"
Editor Rob: he may well spontaneously combust...so I think it's best I never meet him 👿

This guy is The Ultimate A$$hole.

Could you imagine if Rob got a picture with him, and Simon found it here? With the quotes above attributed to him, I'm shocked we haven't seen any noticeable presence of him yet, or that he hasn't at least privately tried to contact Rob. Well, according to Rob he's technically correct about not being 5'9"! :D
Editor Rob: he fits the kind of description, but I never managed to get a photo with Pegg...so he's not really 'the a$$hole'.

Editor Rob: best go up to him and say 'you look taller in person than I thought'

he'll definitely smile 😎 and thank you...maybe even get a handshake 🤝 👍

then as you are walking away, smile back and say 'Yeah, thought you were only 5ft 7 and 3/4, turns out you look 5ft 8 and a 1/4'

😡😡😡


Rob maybe he should say that too Jason statham?
Editor Rob: Statham might not bother...Pegg does, unless it's all part of a sarcastic style of humour.

I don't know though, from watching interviews and reading some of his twitter he might mistake jokes for seriousness.

Editor Rob: yes, and congratulate him on how tall he looks in person of course!
Morris said on 26/Jul/17
Pegg has inferiority complex. 170-175cm is completely standard 180-195 is tall standard. He doesn't appear much taller than Cruise. I will no longer see any movie where this person work because of his arrogance.

leave him alone , let him say hes 5 foot 10 , he can be as tall as he wants in his dreams ( sweet dreams ) .

This guy obviously has multiple complexes. He constantly mentions people's comments targeted at his height and hair, meaning they bother him. He's not even short, 5'8.75" seems accurate, but he certainly deliberates it..

5'10"? Really?
I think he just did not see a guy like Daniel Craig!
He never looked more than 5 cm taller than Nick Frost. He is a maximum of 5'9 ".
What are we talking about, Simon?
My vote is at 174.5 cm / 5'8.75.

He is below average height, but his proportions appear short.

I've been measured at the doctors before by one of those wall mounted height gauges. The thing said I was 184cm when I'm only 179cm! While I'd like to walk around saying "I'm over 6 foot, check my f**king medical records!" - I won't be because it's simply not true. Everybody knows someone that lies about their height. Simon Pegg happens to be that guy.

i would say about 5'9 for simon pegg i dont see 5'10

Ian said on 7/Apr/17
@MrFish Yeah I've been meaning to ask, are the heights listed here morning heights? Because if so I think I'd just edge Pegg out. I've measured myself at exactly 5'9.13" In the morning and 5'8.54" in the evening. I'm just curious. If they aren't morning heights I think I'd be exactly the same height as him.
Cameron said on 5/Apr/17
Just to mess with him I'm going to pick the lowest possible option. 5'6.75". Let's see how he reacts.
MrFish said on 24/Mar/17
Rob, do you think I'd be about the same as him, since I wake at 5ft 9.5in and only fall a couple mm under 5ft 8.75in on a busy day?
Editor Rob: to be fair, I do think Pegg is nearly 5ft 9, he might have a wee edge on you especially as he has a higher eyelevel than average.

Pegg is 5 foot 8 inches
Sandy Cowell said on 31/Jan/17
I've just been watching Simon Pegg in the movie 'Paul', the film about a sweary, foul-mouthed Alien! He did not look the 5ft10 he says he is, but he wasn't that much below it! I'll give him 5ft9.25 as the film put me in a jovial mood!
Graham Willie is his name in this - what a fine, upstanding name! I liked the bit where the girl, played by Kristen Wiig, enters the two friends' caravan and Paul the alien goes to hide, but does this incredibly musical, yet forceful let-off! It was a let-off to be proud of, and it kind of fizzled out at the end!
The film also stars Simon's friend, actor Nick Frost, as Clive. They are a couple of sci-fi freaks and they bump into Paul, the alien, voiced by Seth Rogan. Sigourney Weaver and Jason Bateman guest star! There must be a great many humorous people in Hollywood! 👽 (predictable, I know!) 👽

Its ok to be insecure about your height but jesus this guy sounds unstable.

He does nothing nut embarass himself to be honest. I'd peg him at 5'7 to 5'8.
Editor Rob: in the past I would have said some of Pegg's statements were just joking, but over the years he really is a serious guy and seems to get pissed off easily at things.

He looks under 5'9 for sure. He's done well for himself for but he's still a k*ob.

Rob, what would the morning height for Pegg be, if you had to guess?
Editor Rob: 5ft 9.5 range at least out of bed, maybe his 5ft 10 claim is on his best day ever with a bust a gut, touching hair measurement.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Nov/16
"a plain looking guy who got lucky with his career"

Ouch!...but I do agree with Arch. He appears to have some deeply-rooted issues with height and maybe his overall appearance. I also feel he's gotten pretty arrogant in the last few years mainly because he's worked with Tom Cruise more than once and thinks he's now a serious actor...thinks he's too good for the lunatic fringe that made him famous. I wouldn't call him a great actor and definitely not the greatest looking guy!
Arch Stanton said on 25/Nov/16
"Apparently the Australian Courier Mail has referred to me as a small, plain, balding man. F**k you, I'm 5'10"! What a strange day. "

Yes, he clearly has height/confidence issues beneath the facade and I'm not surprised, he is a plan looking guy who got lucky with his career.
berta said on 24/Nov/16
he seems to really think he is 178 :P to me he looks anyvhere from 174 to 176 but more 174-75 i think
Editor Rob: sometimes berta, I can get a sense of British sarcasm or wit from actors, but in Pegg's case...he's serious, he is really f****g p****ed off with the idea sites would list him under 5ft 9.

He was doing a signing in Forbidden Planet a few years back and was shorter than me at 5'10". I'd guess about 5'8". My mate with me was close to his height at 5'7".

Rob do you think Pegg is sensitive about his height? His claims indicate that..
Editor Rob: sometimes seemingly aggresion in verbal pose, hides a sense of humour which facial expression and verbal tone reveal.

In Pegg's case, I think it's clear he's not happy about people calling him shorter. It isn't impossible he was measured 5ft 10 in shoes and that's genuine...I've said before the last couple of times Jenny went for a measurement the nurse said you can leave your sneakers on if you want...

He looks 5ft 8 when he was on the Jonathan Ross show.
Sam said on 24/Nov/15
I'd peg him around 174cm, but 173cm/175cm I can just about see as well. He probably might just measure right in the middle. He's not 5'10 that's for sure. The most he could possibly be is near 5'10 out of bed, even if that's being a little generous.
MD said on 28/Oct/15
Are we just assuming when he was doing press for Mission Impossible, this summer, with Tom Cruise that Tom was wearing lifts everytime? I ask, because I don't recall seeing him at any of these appearances looking taller than Tom in any significant way.
Sam said on 27/Oct/15
Yeah his quote might be a touch embarrassing considering that he's a weak 5'9" at best, Pegg, Wright and Frost are a pretty short crew, someone average height like Paddy Considine looked fairly tall & lanky around them.
Chase Witherspoon said on 26/Oct/15
5'10" seriously? he doesn't look 5'9"... 173-174 would be my shout....
[Editor Rob: there might be cases of somebody measuring in a shoe and not even thinking of it, I wonder if Simon is one of those. He seemed to get angry about not being called 5ft 10 on the web.]
N said on 14/Sep/15
Looked a good 3 inches shorter than Jimmy Fallon with Pegg in Converse and Fallon in Dress shoes. I'd say he could be 5'10" in the morning IF he stood on the outsides of his feet and tilted his head back. Most likely 5'9.5" in the morning tops, just under 5'9" at night. He seems to have issues having left twitter and having his GP write a note justifying his height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/May/15
Andrea says on 28/Apr/15
Yeah, MD! He's serious... He basically tries to justify every celebrity's claim by saying they probably measured themselves out of bed and went with it! Go on other pages and have fun xD

...and the closest thing you have to actual friends are the few people on this site who agree with your posts.

The angle is not the best, but he's very obviously taller, and by quite a bit. If anything, Simon is nearly a good inch shorter than listed. I'd put him at a flat 5'8", quite honestly.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Apr/15
Rob, is it possible that he's 177cm out of bed?

Might be why he claims 5ft10
[Editor Rob: he could be, or he measured 5ft 10 in a shoe, which is perfectly reasonable to believe.]

Quest4Truth said on 7/Jan/15
It's hard to tell without meeting the guy, but he never looks like 5ft 10" range.... If he were he could look tallish with the aid of camera angles and small lifts. I'd say this listing is fair, if not slightly generous. Maybe 1.74 is more on the money? Meh, close enough. :-P

@Aman I don't think it can be that far off, a lot of medical records don't even measure you with a stadiometer (I wasn't). I don't know how you could lose 2 inches with the wall method, unless your wall was crooked or something.

Like I said I am 5'10.75" using the wall method, and 6'0.5" according to my records. I know I am not over 5'11" so the doctors measurement is off, therefore if Simon has medical records saying 5'10" it doesn't mean much.
Adamz said on 30/Nov/14
Simon doesn't seem like height would be a concern for him based on his character in movies. I am surprised about his twiiter post and his quote above. He is supposed to be a funny man. Why so serious?
Arch Stanton said on 19/Nov/14
Look at the photo on the Zoe Saldana page. Nowhere near 5 ft 10!
Arch Stanton said on 14/Nov/14
If Simon Pegg does read this: @ Simon Pegg If you actually LOOKED 5 ft 10 barefoot (like Daniel Craig) it might be believable but standing next to Tom Cruise can you not see that even 5 ft 9 is generous!! Click Here

tom says on 7/Aug/14
He tweeted this yesterday ''Dear @idb if I send you my medical records, can you update my height to 5'10" because some f***** there thinks he knows better.'' apparently a bit sensitive about it! He really doesn't look 5'10" to me but there you go.
[Editor Rob: guys this is actually true.

I've been handed the medical record as proof: Proof!]

PMSL!! I'm going to start referring to him as Dr. G from now on!!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Oct/14
I'm surprised he hasn't expressed his outrage on this site!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Oct/14
Rob, is the full 5ft9 possible?
[Editor Rob: he can look very near it at times, other times a weak 5ft 9.]
Aman said on 24/Sep/14
but going back to Simon Pegg, I would say he is no more than 5'9.5.
Aman said on 24/Sep/14
I agree something is majorly wrong Rob, the back to the wall method can be as much as 2 inches off (+ or-) depending on how off the amateur measurer (firends, family members) is, I wouldn't take much trust in that method. A measurement done by a doctor is the most accurate. According to the doctor, I am 5'7 (well, 66.9 to be exact), but when i was measured the amateur way, may height was 5'6. My friend that measured me was off by 0.9 inches. It went the opposite for my older brother, his friend measured him at 5'6.5 , but in reality he is only 5'5, his friend was off by 1.5 inches. So, I wouldn't put much stock into the back to the wall method because your measurer may not know what they are doing.
Aman said on 14/Sep/14
Lelman, medical records are pretty accurate. Height measuring done at home with your back to the wall is inaccurate, you are 184 cm, height measurement done by a doctor is most accurate. The ruler thing at home can take as much as 1.5 to 2 inches off your height
[Editor Rob: if you're getting 1.5-2 inches difference, there's something majorly wrong.]
Kruger2010 said on 20/Aug/14
He's such a hot head! Honestly! It's just stupid how people can get so wound up about their height! Especially their height! He's 5ft 8.75! No more!
tom said on 7/Aug/14
Haha! Makes me wonder what they had for him before. If you look at photos like this, where they're all standing in a line, there's no way he's 5'10"! (Click Here) Seems like a lot of celebrities in the 5'7"-5'9" range will try and claim they're 5'10".
lelman said on 7/Aug/14
He's really insistent on this 5'10" thing. Also, Medical records mean bugger all honestly, I'm listed as like 184cm on mine despite being a couple inches shorter.
Brian said on 23/May/14
I'm surprised he is shorter than I thought! I saw the worlds end, he's the tallest in the group of the rest of the group. Thought he'd be 6 foot.
Bard said on 11/May/14
So one of the misconceptions about him is that people overestimate his height too little...
Richkid123 said on 21/Apr/14
He was barely taller than Tom cruise in ghost protocol. Maybe 5'8.25-5'8.5" he was barely taller

MD said on 24/Jan/14
NJP, yeah, I'd been arguing for a very long time that this listing is quite a bit overstated. I've seen him when they are in casual shoes not looking that much taller than Nick Frost, but whenever he's at formal events, he pulls off looking taller. What I've assumed is that he likes a little help in his shoes at red carpets, and he does seem to be very aware of his height. There is no way an almost 5'9" guy would look so consistently below average most of the time, he strains to get this almost 5'9" in shoes and stretching his body.

He's doing that thing you do with your neck to make yourself look taller, but it just ends up drawing attention to yourself.

He's not only craning his neck but he's also shifted his weight onto the right leg to appear taller at from the hip-up. Been in close proximity to him 3 times. he is 5'8 at the very most. He does appear to have 1.5" to 2" height advantage over JJ who's standing with a relaxed posture "pegging" JJ off at 5'6" or so [in that picture].
lelman said on 22/Jan/14
Weak 5'9", 176cm in the morning, people around this height always seem to claim 5'10". It's rare you see a legit 5'9" claim 5'9" and not 10 or 11.

He isn't shorter than 175.
Sain t said on 28/Aug/13
Just saw the Worlds End and even with bad posture he looked 6'0". I was suprised because he looked shorter in Hot Fuzz and Shaun off the Dead. He had on huge boots though, plus a small cast. 175 is solid. I could buy 176 or even perhaps 177cm. He is never 178 though.
Jonathan D said on 26/Jul/13
I just met him last night at the screening of The World's End at the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson, TX, USA. I got up on stage to do a Hot Fuzz reenactment. I shook his hand. I would say he is a solid 5' 10". I was wearing boots that boosted me up about an inch and a half, and he was wearing shoes that had a very flat sole, and were low profile. Plus no show socks, so it was very unlikely he had lifts in. He wasn't as short as I thought. I'm 5'11".
Silent d said on 24/Jul/13
He never looked 5 foot 10 to me. I always thought closer to 5 foot 9. 5 foot 9.

@Shaun does look it there, if he has a 2 inch boot with some insole and David is in flats he could appear that tall, maybe david's slouching too. Goes to show anyone can be height conscious.

If he claimed 5'9 that would be fair, he'd probably hit it out of bed. But 5'10 is just daft, my guess, bribed by Cruise to make him seem taller :P

5'8. Met him and Nick Frost a couple years ago, and he was at the very least 3 inches shorter than me (I'm 5'11").

Met him a while back at forbidden planet in london. He's a no frills 5'8.5" i'd say. No frills - meaning he didn't make an attempt to wear lifts unlike Cruise in those pics posted by MD. He wore skate shoes and was really pleasant.
Dmeyer said on 7/Jan/12
Rob in mi4 in walking scène in the Kremlin Cruise looks a Good 2.5cm shorter if Simon is 5'8.75 in Cruise isnt over 5'7.75 , if pegg is 174 then Cruise could be 5'7.5
[Editor Rob: I think Pegg has a higher eyelevel than average, which is an advantage to looking taller.]
John b said on 4/Jan/12
Watched mission impossible to day and Tom Cruse always looked a good inch taller then Pegg, it did get me thinking how tall is he really? As Tom is noted on this site under 5'8 think a bit more investigating Editor on Simon Peggs bight is called for ???
Bryan said on 3/Jan/12
Anyone who's watched the latest Mission Impossible will say that Simon Pegg was around 2 inches taller than Tom Cruise during the Kremlin scenes.
MD said on 27/Dec/11
Rob,

Sorry to keep posting on this, but I just finished watching Mission Impossibl: Ghost Protocol, which in the main cast included Pegg, Tom Cruise (5'7.75"), and Jeremy Renner (5'8.5") for the guys. Now, I know a movie is far from the best place to judge the heights of actors, but there was not more than a quarter inch difference between the whole three the entire movie. I'm convinced they are all generally around 5'8". Pegg was the shortest of the three.

Apart from the actual movie, here they are at premieres for the movie, this month:

Again, Rob, I can assure you that Pegg isn't taller than 5'8", and most likely nothing more than 5'7.5" If I were you, I'd not list him any taller than 5'8".
Bakura said on 26/Dec/11

The difference between wearing my hiking boots and my tennis shoes is an inch.. Unless they are barefoot, their heights will always be questionable..
MD said on 19/Dec/11
Rob,

Thanks for getting it closer, but Daniel Craig, aside, he's still only marginally taller than 5'7" Jamie Bell, like half-an-inch, at the most, wouldn't you agree? I don't know; he routinely looks between 5'7" and 5'8", to me, as opposed to looking between 5'8" and 5'9".
[Editor Rob: in some photos he might look 1/2 inch taller, but in others I think he can look at least an inch taller.

]
MD said on 17/Dec/11
Rob,

With 5'10"ish Daniel Craig and however tall Jamie Bell is, now:

Craig nearly towers Pegg, and the footwear for all of them doesn't explain the height difference. Honestly, what's the difference in those pictures? Like a full three inches?
[Editor Rob: Craig has managed to look tall, as he's done with a few in the last year with a few people. I think he has a bit of camera help there though.

Pegg could very well be similar to one of the guys in the height challenge I measured, from my perspective on seeing him his eyelevel could make him look taller, but as with the guy in the challenge he turned out to be 5ft 8.5 on the stadiometer.

putting pegg fraction shy of 5ft 9 is most likely getting nearer.]

Compared to Nick Frost he looks like a weak 5ft9. Nowadays Nick is so heavy that it makes him look an inch shorter than he really is. Rob take a look at this is.Click Here I think that Jimmy Kimmel is really around 5ft11 and David Arquette 5ft10 max.
tph in ct said on 30/Mar/08
I just saw "Run Fat Boy" with Simon. If Celeb Heights has Frank Azaria at 5'11.25, Simon should be downgraded to 5'8 or so. There is a strong 3" gap in height . Both are wearing Nikes so I assume a similiar heel
G-MANN said on 7/Jan/08
I've always wondered about this guy's height. I do think 5'10" would be too much, but compared to Nick Frost (which is certainly on the stocky side) he looks taller, especially when he got in shape for Hot Fuzz. But in that film, Jim Broadbent (who must be 6'1" or so) towered above him in some shots. 5'9" sounds about right. In Spaced he was always shorter than Mark Heap, who looks like a 6 footer to me.

Above Nick's Frost posture, it's probably because he's fat (no offence to him), men who carry a lot of weight around the middle don't seem to stand as straight as slim men.
Ash said on 5/Nov/07
I've heard people say before that he's 5'10" and Frost is 5'8" but there's definitely not that much difference between them. So yeah, I'd say he's about 5'9", or 5'9" 1/2. I'm 5'7" and he's a good few inches taller than me in the picture I have with him.
thekiddd said on 18/Aug/07
Well, he has a great posture unlike Nick Frost so that could make him look taller than he actually is. And Frost has a bad posture that is why he look way shorter than him sometimes. I am going to say he is 5'8 1/2 and Frost is a solid 5'7".
He is definitly not 5'10" as he claims.

Maybe not a full 5'9", or perhaps, Nick Frost really is the 5'8" his agency claims.

[Editor Rob: Frost has actually woeful posture in person, he can look at times 5ft 6, the director is struggling with 5ft 6 actually, edgar wright. But pegg as I say looked near 175, although there is a chance of 174.]
lance said on 19/Jun/07
In hot fuzz (about 10 min. in), after Pegg arrests those kids; the one with the traffic cone on his head is about 175cm against the height chart. You then see Pegg taking the cone off, and it’s possible to see Pegg also at about 175cm. But I’m not too sure if he was wearing his big bother boy boots though.
