leonari said on 14/Jan/08
I think 5'7" flat would be most accurate .
said on 13/Jan/08
glenn is about 5'8 ,if he thinks tobey is shorter then whi list him at 5'7.75
[Editor Rob: I can believe down to 5ft 7, maybe I'll eventually agree. ]
Rob said on 12/Jan/08
Tobey is the perfectsize for the Peter Parker role. n comparing him tomyslef, I say that he is around 5'7" and very well could be 170 or. I am 5'7".5, weight 172 with a 30 inch waist. So I say that his measurements a very possible..
Gago said on 8/Jan/08
You're welcome Glenn, and thanks to you. Lot of people here judge peoples heights by watching movies, not considering camera angles, pavement, etc. and some people just don't know the difference between 5'6, 5'8 and 5'10.
glenn said on 7/Jan/08
i agree he looks 5-8 in the movies.but in person he was shorter.
twingo said on 7/Jan/08
I think 1.72 cm barefoot fits him better. He doesn't look shorter than that in any scene of the 3 spider's movies compared to others actors/rees and even objects in scenaries, like doors height, despite of the care of the movie producers related to this point in camera angles or shoes lifts wearing. Anyway, I can't picture (imagine) any other actor performing Peter Parker so perfectly despite of his low height to the caracter. I am 41 and a spider fan since I was a kid and think Tob choice was perfect. Sorry about my english, I am brazilian.
glenn said on 7/Jan/08
without shoes estimates is what i give.
Andre said on 6/Jan/08
Tobey looks 5'6.5 max to me. He looks about the same height as I look in photos. In shoes we can push the 5'8 mark.
Andre said on 6/Jan/08
With shoes or without Glenn?
glenn said on 5/Jan/08
thank you for backing me gago.he was the 2nd biggest shock i had since emilio.people were telling me toby was always 5-6.but i did see 5-7 as well.good eye leonari.even better eye gago.ill buy that. 5-6.5 or so.no way under 5-6.
Andre said on 5/Jan/08
Glenn, so this guy is 5'5.5 MAX barefoot??
Gago said on 5/Jan/08
Tobey is 168, may be 169, little over 5'6, seen him few times, and Franco is 5'9.5 tops.
leonari said on 5/Jan/08
Glenn: Thank you! Years ago before Maguire hit it big I always said this guy is a tad shorter than me...I say he is 5'7" absolute max on a good day...on most days he is around 5'6.5"...
glenn said on 5/Jan/08
no way.i saw toby look 5-6 in dress shoes.5-7 in nike air.so 5-7 top.and thats pushing it.
canadian girl said on 4/Jan/08
to round it off he definally gotta be 5'8. 5'8 is his max height.
Bobbbo said on 8/Dec/07
I've always thought James Franco looked a little taller than 5'10
said on 30/Nov/07Click Here
- a pic of him next to 5'10 james franco. He is easily 2 inches shorter than him as James looks like he ducking to get in the picture and not throw it out of proportion. Tobey Maguire is not a hair over 5'8 and thats if you believe these heights are without shoes on. I'd say measured by a doctor he is 5'7.
leonari said on 11/Nov/07
Jon Stweart is 5'6" which makes Tobey 5'7". In my mind Tobey is shorter than Cruise. by 2 cm. Of course I could be wrong.
glenn said on 11/Nov/07
jon stewart is tricky.i heard him say he was 5-6 out of his own mouth.and he can look it.he can also look 5-7.
Farnsy said on 11/Nov/07
Yeah I saw it too. Next to 5'7 Jon Stewart he looked taller than Jon by barely an inch
Anonymous said on 10/Nov/07
He and Kirsten Dunst looks about the same height when Dunst wears high shoes. I'd say he's 5'7 and a half
Adam Brennon said on 27/Oct/07
Impressive dimensions Mr DEATh. How much can you squat, curl and bench?
Anonymous said on 19/Oct/07
He doesn't look less than 5'7, and definitely no more than 5'8. Anything out of that range is ridiculous.
DEATh said on 11/Oct/07
I'm 5'7 and I weigh 205lbs. I got 28" quads, 18" arms, 48" chest, 18" calfs
said on 8/Oct/07
here's a video of him with Steve Carell: Click Here
Carell looks about an inch taller than Tobey but probably no more than that.
roy said on 2/Oct/07
im 5'11 and a half and way 213lbs yet its just primarily big build. some people who are blatantly like 5'9 or ten say "oh yeah I'm almost 6 foot!" no, your not, your 3 inches off! Plus theyre like "ooh yeah im about, what 12 stone?" Thats why you must never trust shorter people when giving their height as they're always going to just boost themselves up a little bit, and if overweight, they'll reduce it. Maguire is pushing 5 ft 7 imo. Kirsten Dunst was almost the same height, probs not much more than about an inch so you know. Barely 5'7, and that was roy speaking. good day and goodnight.
John said on 1/Oct/07
Youre an idiot Anon. Jay Cutler barely has above 30 inch thighs and he's 5'9 like 270 pounds.
I find it hard to believe that a manlet such as yourself, at 165 pounds, could have large measurements.
dave said on 1/Oct/07
Im 5'9.5 and I tip the scales at just over 170, like 172 on a good day. I dont look bulky at all more toned and ripped. Even if Tobey Maguire is only 5'7/5'7.5 I can believe he was close to 170 pounds for the role of spiderman.
Jason said on 29/Sep/07
30'' thighs at 5'8'' 165lbs? Mistake? :P Mine are 28.33'' & I'm 6'3 1/2'' 243lbs...
Agree if he's only 5'6''-5'7'', he wasn't 170lbs, though.
Anon. said on 28/Sep/07
In response to what was said about the actor's weight, I agree with the fact that he probably wasn't close to 170 lbs for the role of Spider Man. I stand an even 5'8, and weigh 143 pounds now. When I was playing hockey I walked around at 165 and was much bigger than Tobey appears in the movie, thick neck, arms etc. despite also having 30" thighs.
glenn said on 22/Sep/07
well i saw him in the flesh several times.he is 5-6 to 5-7.
Farnsy said on 21/Sep/07
Actually I saw him in a photo next to Lukas Haas and they say that Lukas is 6'1. If you ask me Maguire looked about 12cm shorter. But we all saw it on the Ellen Show, he appeared her height,a said 5'6. So it's hard to tell but I'm going to say Maguire is 172-173cm tall from my point of view. 5'8 sounds about right
glenn said on 7/Sep/07
exactly lee and leonari.
lee said on 6/Sep/07
yes i do belive that tobey is only 5'6"i was with a man that was 5'7" AND TOBEY looks a bit shorter i say 5'6" i myself is 5'4" so i know what it looks like standing next to a 5'6" or a 5'7"
leonari said on 30/Aug/07
The guy is 5'7"...and hell who knows: Maybe Glenn saw a liftless Tobey? That would explain the 5'6" encounter...
Chip said on 29/Aug/07
I think he is about 5'8". I really don't think he's much less than 5'7". 5'8" isn't tall, guys, it's about average.
dmeyer said on 28/Aug/07
if glenn see him 5'6 i doubt he is over 5'7 but he dosnt look more than 3 in under franco
Anonymous said on 27/Aug/07
Rob, that's a real modest downgrade from 5-8 to 5-7.75 but a downgrade nonetheless :-) you shold've taken this guy to at least 5-7.5 though. But I really think he's 5-6. 5-7 if you strech it.
Yitzhak said on 14/Aug/07
He's about 3 inches shorter than James Franco (who I believe is no more than 5'10)
6'3'' JK said on 26/Jul/07
Well Rob if Glenn is saying 5'7'' then you should downgrade the guy by half an inch the least, Glenn have you got a picture with him?
glenn said on 26/Jul/07
he isnt taller than 5-7.he looked that in nike airs.in dress shoes he was a shocking 5-6.so i dont know.
leonari said on 26/Jul/07
Glenn: Are you sticking to 5'6" for this guy???? Please reply. thanks dude.
glenn said on 25/Jul/07

hey Rob u edited the intro after i pointed out the mistake...good....:)
[Editor Rob: yeah, the intro hadn't been changed since the beginning of time...so changed now ;)]
Anonymous said on 11/Jul/07
I don't see any short legs there. Still looks pretty proportionate to me. I'm still sticking to 5'6". Also, he appears to be as tall as Ellen in the video who's 5'6" max but looks like Tobey is trying his level best to stretch himself as maximum as he can to appear taller than her.
said on 11/Jul/07
Anonymous: actually, Maguire's legs are short. Watch the video on Ellen Degenares show on YouTube. Click Here
5'6" if he was proportionate, 5'7" 'cause he's not.
glenn said on 9/Jul/07
just like i saw when i met him the first time.5-6.
Anonymous said on 8/Jul/07
A follow-up to Tobey's pair of pants on auction: if you see the scene where he's wearing those pants in the movie, you'll notice that the pants are bunched up in fold's near his foot. The scene is where he's standing at the end of the fight with Harry unconscious on the ground. Now an inseam of 29 3/4" on a 5'7" guy who's limbs are proportionate shouldn't be bunched up like this as Tobey's legs appear to be well proportionate to the rest of his body and he's not a guy with short legs. My young brother is 5'7" and his limbs are proportionate and he wears a 30" inseam pants, and they don't bunch up like this. So I think he's a 5'6" guy.

said on 25/Jun/07
I don't think Maguire is 5'8". Look here -Click Here
In that pic, Dunst is obviously taller than him. She's wearing big heels, that might give her extra 3 inches. That's 5'8.5"(174cm). Maguire is wearing heels also, plus he's also wearing lifts (look where his leg/knee is bending). If he was 5'8", the added height (even without the lifts, just the shoes) should put him at least at 175 cm. No, no. Tobey is 5'7" (170-171cm). End of story.
mcfan said on 24/Jun/07
If Robert Downey Jr is 5'8 then Tobey has to be 5'7.5 or below.
MD said on 12/Jun/07
He's definitely not a full 5'8", but Rob seems to believe he is for whatever reason.
glenn said on 12/Jun/07
the 2 shocks lately are toby and michael chilkles(sp?) looking 5-6.second time i saw toby he seemed more 5-7.
Lmeister said on 12/Jun/07
PPl have different kinds of builts. One frined of mine who is 5'11'' wears 30'' jeans and one of my co-workers wears 32'' eventhough he is 6'0''. I'm 5'8'' and usually buy 30''...
Robert.R said on 11/Jun/07
That is interesting Anonymous because I am only 5'7" or just over and my inside leg is 31" although I never buy jeans under 32" inside leg.
Anonymous said on 5/Jun/07
There are a pair of pants on auction on ebay which were worn by Tobey in Spider-man 3. The inseam of the pants: 29 3/4", that would make Tobey's height a solid 5'6" or a very weak 5'7".
Cpt. Crunch said on 4/Jun/07
3-4 inches shorter and 30 pounds lighter than the real Spiderman in Marvel Universe statistics. Also makes him weaker than the real Spiderman because, like a spider, Spidey can lift 40 times his weight. For Tobey that's only 6000 pounds.
mcfan said on 23/May/07
I think he wears lifts at times. Sometimes he looks 5'7.
lee said on 15/May/07
years back tobet was said to be 5'7 and to me he looks it i had a boyfriend that was 5'7 and i 5'2 just like tobeys wife to be and my x and i look like tobey and hes wife to be standing side by side so yes i do think that tobey is 5'7 or .5 shorter
MD said on 11/May/07
Sorry for what?
Elisabeth said on 10/May/07
Kirstun dunst looks kind of tall for a girl.but For a guy,that is kind of on the short side.I think he is around 5'7.5".Sorry Tobey.
val said on 10/May/07
yeah,it's ok..his tall is same to me.
but he's the right person to play as spiderman..i hope i can see spiderman 4..
spiderman is my favorite movie..forever
said on 9/May/07
Rob has said many times before that Tobey was made to look taller than Dunst in the movies, and here is a pic the proves Rob Right, Tobey doesnt look that mych taller than, Dunst, if an Inch. Also Molina Dwarfs both of them.
MD said on 8/May/07
Yeah, he looked taller than Jon, to me, too. But, it was nothing over an inch, and looked less than that.
sam said on 8/May/07
He looked almost an inch taller than Stewart to me. I noticed Maguire was standing ramrod straight (almost abnormally so), perhaps hoping not to seem comparable to a little guy like Stewart.
the shredder said on 8/May/07
Rob , man me others think you should put him down to 5'7 ! ... Even Glennjamin saw 5'6 !
George H. said on 8/May/07
Saw him on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. They were about the same height.
the shredder said on 8/May/07
I'd bet money that he is in the 5'7 range ! ... 5'7 was what he was getting listed at , then BOOM , HE IS SPIDER MAN ! ... LET ME GIVE MYSELF 5'8 NOW !
MD said on 8/May/07
I can't see him being anything over 5'7". I think Rob needs to check this one, again.
trueheight said on 8/May/07
look at spidey 2 when his best friend introduces him to DOC OC - James Franco who is just under 5'11(listed here) is about 4in taller than him easy. He looks like a child next Alfred Molina
trueheight said on 8/May/07
he's not 5'8

Hmm, Shredder 5-7 is very reasonable. I will go see Spiderman3 on wednesday. First one was definately best. "BONESAW is READEEE!" haha.

Height: 5 ft. 10 in.
Weight: 165 lbs.
Mary Jane Watson-Parker
Height: 5 ft. 8 in.
Weight: 120 lbs.
(for the argument of how tall spiderman SHOULD be)
but tobey does look about 5'8. I mean im roughly 5'9 so I'm pretty sure just by looking at him that he's that height.
the shredder said on 7/May/07
I just saw Spiderman 3 ... When he stands next to 5'10.5 Thoper Grace , he looks 5'7 max !
glenn said on 6/May/07
thank you guys.even my friends and peers agree that he was 5-6ish.i was shocked.i thought he was 5-8 for sure.this is one case that asshole scarlet was right on.scarlet,i cant hear you.
6'3'' JK said on 6/May/07
Tobey looks 5'8'' to me
timber said on 5/May/07
I don't think it was an illusion, Glenn: saw him on the Ellen DeGeneres show today and he appeared her height, 5- 6.
bikbanban said on 5/May/07
just watched on tv today (a special show bout spiderman 3) a male japanese tv personality saying "i met him (tobey) in a hotel and shook his hand. and man, it was a real surprise how small he is, he's smaller than me". btw this guy has 170.
AirSky said on 4/May/07
5'8" on a very good day. I ask you, why would they pick Tobey Maguire as Spider-man? Have they forgotten what Peter Parker looks like? (and I'm not talking height only) I don't know about you, but to me, that blows the whole movie from the get-go -- nothing wrong with Tobey, great actor
glenn said on 3/May/07
just missed dicaprio and toby together.imagine that photo.not a photog or autograph dealer around.the thing is,would they agree to pose with me?
dmeyer said on 3/May/07
after look at pics near 5 ft 5.5 dunst he looks 5'8 but can look under it near clooney and franco so 5'8 morning 5'7.25 night he might be a 171 guy
TheJerk said on 2/May/07
5-6 is too low, 5-7 I think wouldn't be.
glenn said on 2/May/07
almost had the photo with him too.he got upset 2 papparazi were doing video on him.he is one of the toughest to get.had him alone pretty much.
leonari said on 2/May/07
Well Glenn: I bet thats because he is a lot closer to 5'7" than most of you think. They did a good job of making Peter Parker look taller than he is. Great movie btw. saw it yesterday. Ending a bit long but special effects in this movie are something else.amazing. For me there is noo way that Tobey Maguire is a full 5'8" man. never was, never will be.
glenn said on 2/May/07
i finally met him.no pic yet.i was shocked to see he appeared 5-6!!! i dont know if it was a strange illusion.my friend saw the same thing.he had dress shoes.
MD said on 1/May/07
Tobey was just on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, he looked an inch taller than Jon Stewart, at the very, very most.
said on 17/Apr/07
Toby is 5'6. In heels 5'5 Kristen Dunst has the edge on him. Barefeet he is about half an inch taller.
Clear view of this
Jordan said on 12/Apr/07
Yes, I figure Dafoe and Tobey both wear lifts and in MD's pics its apparent that at least one of them wears lifts. Its better to compare Tobey to Molina beacuse almost all the people on the Molina page agree that he is a solid 6'2 so maybe Molina is better to compare Tobey with since Molina's height is more proven.
said on 11/Apr/07
Well, it appears the pictures of him with what we've decided as a 5'7" Dafoe are gone, so here they are, again:
Unless Dafoe is in lifts and Tobey isn't, for everyone of those three different appearances, it would seem that Tobey is only marginally taller, definitely not a full inch taller.
Robert.R said on 9/Apr/07
You could be right Jodran, perhaps it is deceiving on television.
Jordan said on 9/Apr/07
Robert.r, maybe thats because he is in scenes with the 6'2.5 Alfred Molina, thus making Tobey look shorter.
Robert.R said on 8/Apr/07
Spiderman II is on the T.V and this guy looks really short to me. I doubt if he is over 5'7".
Mike said on 6/Apr/07
This guy is 5'7. If he says 5'8 he's gonna be an inch shorter..
Jordan said on 5/Apr/07
Well SF, I have not read the comics that much, and I only became a fan after Spider-man 2 was realesed and plus I have only read a few comics but I think on Marvel bios it usually has Spidey at 510. Sf you prolly are right about the comics though, I cant argue there.
glenn said on 5/Apr/07
i kinda remember the 5-8 to 5-9 references now come to think of it,but read more 5-10.so yeah it varied.what was his first true height? i guess the lower numbers since sf is sure of it.
sf said on 4/Apr/07
I still have to disagree and stick with 5'8" to 5'9" claims. He has NOT always been listed as 5'10". What one person said makes sense, though, and that it varies over time. I don't know about Spidey vs. Daredevil, but I do know in scores of Amazing Spider-Man comics he is listed as 5'8" to 5'9", always referred to as a smaller guy, a little guy, not that big But, as one person said, as the comics progressed and Spidey got more "studly", and popular,they did make him look bigger and better-looking, even though he was supposed to be shorter. I even noticed this when reading the comics in 1977, 1978,1980, etc. that he was always protrayed as taller and better-looking as the comic got more popular, etc. So, I'm sure he's been listed as taller as the comics progressed. His original height was only 5'8" to 5'9". Also, as one person pointed out, he was supposed to be an average guy, more in line with average heights of the 60's. He was a science nerd, not athletic, etc.
Bottom line, though, Maquire was a good choice, true to the comics. Ask yourself why they cast such an average, short guy, cause that's what Peter Parker originally was and I believe Stan Lee was pretty passionate about keeping the the Spider-man movies pretty true to form. they could have hired any great-looking, tall actor, and they chose Maguire - nuff said.
Sorry, if I appear argumentative, but Spidey is one thing I know and after reading hundreds for over 30 years, I can't tell you how many times he is casually referred to as 5'8" to 5'9" in the comics...
said on 4/Apr/07
a picture of Tobey and his son/daughter and his wife/girlfriend. full body shot.
looks 5'9 with shoes.
Jordan said on 3/Apr/07
I am an avid Spidey fan and Spder-man has always been listed at 5'10 and 165lbs or 167lbs. Belive it or not Dr. Ock is always listed at 5'9 in the comics but Alfred Molina( Who played Ock in Spider-2) is 6'2 and about 260lbs.
glenn said on 2/Apr/07
thats far back enough and prooves my point.at least that it varies.thanks parker.
Parker said on 2/Apr/07
Spiderman vs Daredevil Vol 1 issued September 1964 - has Spiderman's height at 5'10
glenn said on 2/Apr/07
well then his height varies.i have stuff that lists him at 5-10 in the 80s and 90s.
Duhon said on 1/Apr/07
SF you make sense spider-man was supposed to be an average-joe kid. in the 60's i believe the average height of a man was 5'8" hence peter parker's height. they might have upgraded him since then to deal with the fact the average height has risen. peter parker was never supposed to be a pretty boy.
sf said on 1/Apr/07
No, go back and read the OLD comics, and you will see that Peter Parker is described around 5'8" to 5'9". I've been reading these comics for over 30 years, and have original Spider-Man comics dating back to the 60's. Sorry, but he's not taller than 5'9" in the original, 40-year old comics books, and not a stud, or anything. He's a shorter, average guy who's a nerd, a science whiz. Maguire was actually a good choice.
glenn said on 1/Apr/07
actually paul is correct.
Paul said on 1/Apr/07
Actually SF, Spider-man is 5'10 in the comics.
Lmeister said on 28/Mar/07
They wanted to cast Glenn Danzig to the role of Wolverine, but he couldn't play the part because of touring. I think Glenn would have been better than Hugh JackOffman..
sf said on 26/Mar/07
Sleuth - you're wrong. In the comics, Spidey is a short guy, generally mentioned as 5'8" to 5'9". Just a regular guy, not tall, not that great looking, etc. That's why they cast him. For once, the movies tried to be true to the story and not make him look like a supermodel or miscast him like they did Wolverine in X-men, who is truly supposed to be very short. (hence the name since Wolverines are small, incredibly viscious animals.)
glenn said on 26/Mar/07
i never seen the guy.been on the set of part 2 a couple of times.never saw him or missed him.
Anthony said on 25/Mar/07
I'd believe it. My friend didn't actually mert him in person, but he managed to be among the crowd during the shooting of a scene in "Spider-Man 3", and he said Tobey acted like an ass towards fans and crew members and even deliberately smoked in front of a "No Smoking" sign. He actually did give me a bit of a height rundown on other cast members, although I disagree on most of them.
glenn said on 25/Mar/07
he was one of the worst.no autographs,no photos.now,he takes photos with people on occasion.i think its still no to autographs.
Anthony said on 25/Mar/07
I agree that 5'8 is about rihht. I also heard from a friend he's a real jerk in person.
Jordan said on 4/Mar/07
I think he is 5'8 . I have seen him listed at 5'7 alot, but I think he is 5'8. I almost met him in 2004, but I did meet Alfred Molina( Dr. Ock) who was surprisingly taller then me. I'm 5'10 and Molina was surley over 6'1.
G-unit said on 11/Feb/07
he's a legit 5'8
kay said on 8/Feb/07
a guy would not lie about being 5'8'' if he is wrong it is because the person measuring him is rounding up. I cant forsee a leading man who is obviously under the basic stereotypical size to lie even further.
Glenn said on 18/Jan/07
I never met him.I saw an interesting photo of a 5-7 guy I see around,with Toby.they looked pretty much the same.for years,even before Spiderman,he never posed and rarely signed.now,he is posing sometimes.
Robert.R said on 17/Jan/07
I thought he looked a little shorter than 5'8" but I have only seen him in his movies so I suppose it is difficult to judge.
deferick said on 16/Jan/07
This lad is wee, he was supposedly going to lose the job of Spiderman to Freddie prince jr but they went with toby, because unlike superman, spiderman was just a normal guy. he's quite short 5-7ish
jason said on 8/Jan/07
(kirsten dunst is listed 166 cm on this site)not 5-7.(170 cm) but he might as well have used lifts anyway. comparing to clooney maguire locks about 172-173 cm.
some1 said on 5/Jan/07
5'10 is 179 cm. Tobey is about 170 cm, 5'7. Thats true. He has those "lifts" in Spider man, and Spider man 2, it makes him about 3 cm higher, 5'8. Why he has it, is becuse (of corse) he want too be higher than Kurstin Dunst. Sometimes when you look at him whit that Spidey coustume, you may see that he is higher. But it's becuse, it's another actor behind the coustme. (Sorry for my english)
Vito R. said on 28/Dec/06
I was in NYC for holiday , I saw tobey
I didnt reconize him until someone told me he's the actor in spiderman
i'm about 176cm ( 5'10) he must stand about 5'8 no more.

clooney looks a solid 5'11 or 6 feet in shoes since he is as tall as 174 cate in 4.5 inches heels and 3 inches on tobey
leonari said on 7/Dec/06
he is about 5'8"...on getty images there is a pic with Clooney and he looks max. 1.5 inches shorter...shocking but true.

I think 5'6". Movie angles can really change height differences but in the end of the movie Pleasantville he is talking to Reese Witherspoon who is wearing saddle shoes with probably a similar heel height to his shoes. He does not dwarf 5'2 Witherspoon about 4" taller, maybe 5".

What possessed those guys to cast a 5-8er with no testosterone to play Spidey? In the comics he's at least 5-11 and a tad more masculine.
Brad said on 4/Nov/06
5' 7" maybe less.

He looks about a couple inches shorter than 5'10 Chris Cooper in Seabiscuit so 5'8 sounds about right
Zackzz said on 28/Oct/06
Tobey maguire is definitely 172cm about 5'8 no more than that and certainly not under so get over it people, i met him the other day he was just shorter than me by an 2 inches i m 177 1/2cm

I don't know, and frankly, I don't care. It's much easier to compare heights of two people similar, than two people more dissimilar.
Jordan said on 17/Aug/06
Would you say that Molina is a solid 6'2 ??
MD said on 16/Aug/06
Jordan, it would easier to compare him to Dunst, who is 5'5.5", and who I'd imagine would be wearing flats in that photo. I'm sure he's shorter than 5'8", I just don't know how much more.
Jordan said on 15/Aug/06
What do you think of the photo with Molina and tobey.
MD said on 13/Aug/06
Karen, you can tell nothing from those photos, especially considering that are never at an equal angle, and most importantly, on sand. I'm not saying I don't think he's shorter than the listed 5'8" (because I do think he's shorter), but those pictures don't prove anything.

Here's photo showing a barefoot, 5'11 Leo Dicaprio with Maguire, who is wearing non-flipflop sandals that give him an inch or so: Click Here
I think Maguire is probably 5'7. Could be just under that though.
said on 4/Aug/06
Alfred Molina is universally regarded as 6'2 but could be a little taller. Here is is towering evertone but tobey looks about 5'7 or 5'8. Click Here
Jordan said on 2/Aug/06
Ithink tobey is said to be 5'8 but if he is 5'7 willem still had almost 2 inches on him. There is another pic where Tobey is taller so the question might be does tobey or willem wear lifts???
Karen said on 30/Jul/06
Hard to tell because of Dafoe leaning forward but Maguire definitely appears 1-2? inches shorter.
said on 30/Jul/06
Has this pic been posted ???? Dafoe is noticablily taller Click Here

244lbs at 5'10" sounds a bit more than solid, sorry to say. Unless you're a bodybuilder that's really overweighted.
Jordan said on 11/Jul/06
I agree about different frames and weights for them--I in fact are 5'10 and my build and wide shoulders allow me to be 244lbs at 5'10 and look pretty solid

About tobey's weight on spider man if you watched when maguire and Dunst were on the oprah show where the show was about spider man and real life super heroes (just google tobey magire on oprah and the show im refering to will come up) Tobey stated after his training for spider man he weighed in at 152 lbs and was eating 3200 calories a day to keep his muscle mass. This is correct. Im obsessed with my height and weight and always ask doctors to measure me Im exactly 5'8" standing barefoot and straight!. I needed to gain wieght because the doctor told me I was under weight at age 24 5'8" and only weighing 108 lbs (I now weigh 137), I started searching for someone famous who was in the same age group as I, had the same body structure, had the same height as I and had the physique I wanted, I imediately thought Tobey Magure on spider man. I've done so much reasearch on him and his training for spider man and his stats. there is no way he could weigh over 152 for spider man at 5'8" Tobey would have looked too MASSIVE for his body frame if he had weighed in a 165 or more. So for his height and wieght during spider man it was 5'8" 152 lbs. he couldnt be more! if you look at Mark Wahlberg (star of boogie nights and the famous calvin klein underwear campaign) Mark Walhberg is 5'9" 165 pounds in his famouse underwear pose for calvin klein (which i also done heavy reasearch on since he is around the same hieght as me). I'm now becomming a personal trainer and plan to train stars for rolls like this. These proportions are correct.

Tobey Maguire does not wear LIFTS or HIGH HEELS despite being 5'7". Not necessary if you've got a 5'4" girlfriend by the name of Jennifer MEYER, who incidentaly is..(Ahermmm...Cough..cough) the daughter of UNIVERSAL PICTURES boss RON MEYER. They were at courtside in the STAPLES CENTER, Los Angeles last May 4, 2006 Thursday night to cheer the Phoenix Suns beat the Lakers (oh..well)...
Tobey was wearing normal looking sneakers and Jennifer in sandals.
said on 12/Mar/06
He's 5'7 barefoot and CAN look 5'9 in dress shoes, with a simple 1/2 in. lift. We know Bruce Campbell is 6ft even, which makes Sam Raimi(from countless early photos) 5'9 max(not the 5'11 listed on IMDB)Click Here
Raimi is at least 1 inch taller than Maguire, who looks to be in optimal posture while Raimi has the *surprised* look

I don't know... what I know is that he weighed between 165 and 170lbs for Spiderman... what I also know is that people can look like Spiderman when they are 5'7'' or 5'8''. The weight is suitable for both. But having seen other pics of Tobey (now known as FAT TOBEY) I have to agree he's 5'8''. Sometimes he can look 5'8.5''.
mcfan said on 17/Nov/05
I think we may have a problem? Who wears lifts...Dafoe or Maguire? Dafoe is clearly taller than Maguire here. Look at his shoulders next to Maguire's. There is an angle but something is wrong. However, Maguire is clearly taller than Dafoe by almost an inch in other photos. I think this clears up that Dafoe wears lifts or custom shoes with lifts.
[Editor Rob: Dafoe is a bit closer to camera...hmm, but Tobey in trainers for once!]
MD said on 15/Oct/05
I don't know. Tobey always looks to be in flat trainers unless at an event. He doesn't strike me as someone that would be walking around in lifts outside of a movie.
MD said on 14/Oct/05
But, if he gets downgraded anymore, than Tobey will have to come with them. I don't see an inch difference there, at all.
[Editor Rob: which is why I've not downgraded either...although you just never know about tobey's footwear...]
said on 14/Oct/05
Wait a minute. We have Willem Dafoe listed at 5'7.5"
Willem's shoes have a heel, here, but still.[Editor Rob: you want to shave more height of Dafoe or Maguire or both ;) Many would agree...the thing is, it's amazing how in films dafoe can look taller than he is. I think he's gonna get downgraded more soon...]
CoolJ said on 6/Sep/05
If Maguire is slightly smaller than Downey Jr., I would have to think Maguire is 5'7 even as Downey Jr looked 5'8.5ish with that mugshot where he was probably in shoes.
McFan said on 8/Aug/05
I agree with Mr. Awesome that Maguire might be slightly under 5'8. I would not put him under 5'7 and he might even be 5'7.5 but 5'8 doesn't look right. He looks around the same height as Ellen Degeneres and slightly smaller than Robert Downey Jr.
Mr. Awesome said on 29/Jul/05
Rob, it looks just about unanimous here that Tobey is under, 5'8'', and even you have admitted tha the looks under 5'8''. I think it's time to peg him down some.
Z2 said on 18/Jul/05
When Tobey started his acting career he said he was 5'7". Which means he's a true 5'6". If he looks taller in movies, it's due to "lifts." When Spiderman came out, he was listed everywhere as 5'8". On my view, he only looks 5'6".
Lmeister said on 17/Jun/05
I saw "Ride with the devil" last night. I noticed that the only person Tobey was little bit taller was Jewel(5'6''). in the pic Tobey is standing closer to camera and they both had pretty similar boots http://images.contactmusic.com/images/reviews/ridewdevil.jpg
Standing next to Jonathan Rhys Meyers Tobey certainly looks no more than 5'7''
[Editor Rob: I always think tobey is rounding up slightly. In wonder boys he definitely looked slightly shorter than his proclaimed 5ft 8]
Mr. Awesome said on 1/May/05
it's true, tobey is definitely 5'7. before he hit it big with spiderman 1 and 2, he was listed everywhere as 5'7, but after his movie success, he grew an inch as is customary for most actors. he is still listed on many sites as 5'7 as you can see if you search. I find it funny that he gets listed as 5'8 at all because even on screen he looks tiny,(many times not even 5'7), while msot actors look larger on screen. perhaps you should take a closer look at this one, editor.
[Editor Rob: I will say that in Wonder Boys he looks a definite 5ft 7er. Speaking of that film, I seen it again and in several full framed shots they managed to make Katie Holmes shorter than the 5ft 8-9 guys like Rip Torn, Douglas etc...]

He's 5'8" with shoes on. http://www.tribute.ca/tribute/0402/cover_story.htm
Excerpted from the article: "To that end, the diminutive star (he's 5'7") began a twice-a-day, six-day per week regimen of intense training to prepare for the part including countless hours of gymnastics, martial arts and weight training."
Trap said on 12/Mar/05
Look at some of the extras on Spiderman 2 and you'll see Tobey walking on ramp to make him taller than Kirsten Dunst...and she was wearing thin slippers. Being 5'8" myself, he seems to be right around the same height.
