I would say he is 6ft. 6 ft.25 in seems right. Tom is about an inch taller than Steve Martin who is listed as 5'11.25. http://editorial.gettyimages.com/source/search/details_pop.aspx?iid=51474075&cdi=0

There is no way he is 6 feet. In Bosom Buddies, he was essentially the same height as Donna Dixon (or shorter than her when she wore heels) and she is listed as 5'9 in the imdb.

thats interesting, i was watching green mile and he looked almost 2 inches taller than barry pepper who i'm sure is 5'10.

Yeah I have to agree with those who say Hanks is 5'11 at most. I would say 5'11 maximum and 5'9" minnimum. He looks about 5'9" next to 6'3.5" Seal but is probably taller than that.
My guess would be take 1.5" off of the 6'.25" he is listed on at this site and that would be accurate. By the way, I'm not sure what you thought about the pic of Glenn and DiCaprio, but DiCaprio looked 5'10" to me. Hanks usually appears slightly taller.

You can mostly tell when guys are wearing lifts, though. They tend to look shorter and stumpier than they should for the height they appear ... then you look down at their footware and go ''oh''.

Raj is twisted minded guy, but has opened the cold war debate of who attacks first, if you don't they could do first, but attacking supposes a risk too.
In this occasion are shoes with raisers instead of missils though :P

Erm,... there IS some sort of perverse logic to what raj just said.
If you are pre-supposed to be fudging your height then one might assume all 6' looking men at premieres and celeb events are actually 5'10", etc. even if you ARE 6' to begin with people will assume you are smaller without the magic shoes.
Tinseltown is indeed twisted.

like i sayd in person he looks 184 cm but in pics he looks 6'1" i remember that on the terminal set he stood on his toes for a pic with cher
dmeyer said on 19/Dec/05
this is a good guess when i met him on terminal he didnt look a full 6feet 1 around 0.5 inch less than 6'1"
mcfan said on 8/Dec/05
Really, I think he is only 6 foot. I read the comments below about dragnet where some people say he was 1.5-2 inches shorter than Aykroyd. This was not the case. From what I saw, Aykroyd was a half-inch taller. Perhaps if Aykroyd stopped slouching he might be 3/4 inch taller than Hanks, but certainly no more than that.
[Editor Rob: actually, I think akroyd had good posture in that film, but the difference wasn't that much yes]

even though i met him a few times and he looked around 184 cm i wached the green mile and 184 cm looks right or a dtrong 183 cm

I think that 6'.25" is a good 'guesstimate'of his height. I saw an old episode of 'SNL' from the 90's and he looked to be this height. In fact, Steve Martin was also in that episode, and he looked to be about 2 in. taller than he. Conan O'Brien was in that episode as well, and he and Tom Hanks stood next to one another. I wonder if anyone else has seen it? FYI, Elliot Gould was also in that episode, and appeared to be taller than Tom by a few inches. Does anyone know how tall he is?

i worked on terminal 184 looks right but for sure no shorter then 6 feet i think 6.0.25 is a good guess

On 60 Minutes (Aussie version) Tom said: "Everybody says, "Oh, you're much taller than I thought you were going to be." I say, "Is everybody else that short because I'm not that tall?"

Yes, I think Rob should downgrade him, too. He's more like 182cm nowadays. Aykroyd was clearly taller in Dragnet (even without a hat). Maybe Aykroyd was 186cm at this time and Hanks was 183-184 then. Today: 182
kevin said on 10/Jul/05
ok then look at that picture
i would say more then 1 in taller.

that Saving Private Ryan scene is definitely to Danson's height advantage, plus that he is more than an inch taller than Hanks. Hanks has probably always been 6'0 1/4" to 6'0 1/2" and just rounded up a bit.

I think Tom Hanks is about 5'11". He seems to be a little taller than leonardo Dicaprio, and i think leo is about 5'10 or 5'10 1/2". Tom isn't 6'0". If you want confirmation on how a 6'0" person looks, go watch x-files David Duchovany.you might not beleive it but their is a noticiable dofferance between someone who is 6'0" and someone who is 5'11".
Mr. R said on 16/Mar/05
I am convinced that Tom Hanks is just about 6'. Leo I believe to be 5'11.5", based on the scenes in The Aviator, when he stands next to Danny Huston, whom I met and guess to be 6'1.5" Leo is about 2 inches shorter. Therefore, Leo is 5'11.5" and Tom Hanks is at least an inch taller at 6'.5".

Tom Hanks is not over 6ft, I mean lets be realistic! I think that Tom is 6ft at the very most but more like 5'11. If you watch Saving Private Ryan this is very clear. Vin Diesel is in that movie and is at least an inch taller than he is. There is also a particular scene where he is standing close to Matt Damon, which is very interesting indeed. Just watch it and you will see what I mean.
