How tall is Tom Welling

Tom Welling's Height

6ft 2 ½ (189.2 cm)

American actor best known for starring as Clark Kent in TV series Smallville. In film he appears in The Fog and Draft Day. In a Comics Continuum article, Sam Jones said I asked, "Hey, Tom, how tall are you?" Because I was waiting for him to say 5-7 and I could start laughing. He's like, "6-2 or 6-3.". Tom himself has said "I'm almost six-foot-three" and "about 6'3."

[Height Comparison]
My height has never helped. I'm almost 6-3. People say, 'Oh, you're too tall.' Maybe it's a nice way of saying I'm no good.

@Original Anon: that may be a low end of where he could be from what I’m seeing now. 189-190 range. 6’2 3/8-5/8” range is possible too
Dream said on 15/May/20

Unfortunately, we can’t get younger! Wish we can though!

6’3”, today, is arguable for Charles (Mario). Maybe 190 cm, but probably not lower, like you said.

I remember I thought “Oh it’s-A-Mario! He looks awesome! Looks very friendly and happy!” And when he stood up and I got up close I thought “Oh S$&t! He’s tall!” Definitely one of the guys I didn’t expect to be easily tall, considering his Career as Mario!

I wish i'm still 21 now, but it has gone fast like a train speed. 😂😂

Charles had also claim 6'4 so my guess he isn't a full 6'4 peak but higher chance he could be 6'3 1/2 round it up and still holding 6'3 now. Strong half inch edging out Tom is believable like you estimate especially an afternoon height is relaible which isn't much different thought another 1/8th lost through the night just like i estimate Tom could drop as low as 6'2 3/8 not buying 6'2 1/4 that low. I believe Tom gets 6'2.75" morning by his office that is why he claim almost 6'3.
Dream said on 11/May/20

Hey Junior! I’m around 21, so you’re right! 😂😂

In person, I don’t think Charles’ shoes looked that big. I checked to make sure. His looked like a Normal Running Sneakers, while Tom has shoes that looked too bulky, to be small, in person. It wasn’t anything abnormal at all. Also, Charles has worse posture than me. When he stretches up a bit, he felt more imposing than Tom did.

Charles is 64 now and he would’ve lost height. I think he was at least 6’3” range, peak, If not 6’3 1/4”. Even without shoes and at 64 years old, He could edge out Tom Welling, in person. Tom is easily what Rob lists him, in person, but Charles is not as low as 6’2”-6’2.5”, today.

I also met them around 3:30-4:00 pm, so it isn’t a morning thing.

@OriginalAnon Welling did look at least this listing In person. I just think Charles Martinet (Mario) looked to have a comfortable edge on him, in person.

Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/May/20
@Dream I would have rule out Charles Martinet to be 6'3 1/4 peak and maybe not under 190cm now, understand you had less footwear with him and Tom. Btw i was shock to see how young you look 😮 i would have thought you were about my age (30) after many commenting rely chats with you, it looks like i'm more a decade older than you 😂😂
OriginalAnon said on 10/May/20
Welling is a solid 189cm.
Dream said on 4/May/20
Rob, I apologize. This is last time I will talk about this! 😂

Around this pose, this is where I really felt Charles would edge Tom Welling. — Click Here

I remember Charles was standing the same as I am, but when he stretched his back up more, I couldn’t ever picture him being 6’2” flat, by any means. At that point, it was clear he isn’t less than 6’2.5”, even at 64 years old. He could still be 6’2.75”, today. Heck, maybe he’s still 6’3”, today. Definitely taller than most 6’2” range guys. I can’t give an exact measurement, but I rule out 6’2”-6’2.5”, for sure though.
Editor Rob
Yes, Charles could edge out Tom.
Dream said on 29/Apr/20

Considering how popular Mario is, worldwide, I agree he's worth a page!

He kinda looks like a King-size version of Macaulay Culkin, when he was younger.
Andrea said on 17/Apr/20
Rob, maybe you should give Charles Martinet (Voice Actor of Mario from Nintendo) a page! 😶
Dream said on 9/Apr/20

@Rob, @Canson,

I’m starting to think Charles Martinet (voice for Mario) is probably 1/4 inch taller than Tom Welling now.

Like here, with Tom Welling, my eye brows is barely touching his chin. Of course, my top head is over his nose, despite my footwear disadvantage. — Click Here

Here, with Charles Martinet (Voice Actor of Mario from Nintendo), my eyebrows are darn south under his chin, not to mention my head is under his nose, for sure. We both stood on one leg. However, I’m more straight up, while he’s bending his knee and he’s slouching worst than me. — Click Here

If anything, I think this

Charles Martinet: 6’2.75” (today), full 6’3” range (peak).
Tom Welling: 6’2.5”-6’2.75” range.

Feel free to disagree with me, but all the times I met them up close and examined the pictures, I did have a feeling an older Charles would edge out Welling.

I think the two of you should meet them, if you want to. They are great folks!
Editor Rob
Well I seen Tom more than Charles, but one thing is sure is that Charles probably lost height by now!
Canson said on 5/Apr/20
@Dream: you know I’m also from Virginia. But about 100 miles north right outside of DC
Dream said on 4/Apr/20
@Canson it was held in Richmond, Virginia.
Canson said on 3/Apr/20
@Dream: where was the Con held where you met them?
Dream said on 1/Apr/20

Thanks dude! I agree Tom Welling is at least this listing! Truthfully, the main reason why I think Charles Martinet could’ve been at least the full 6’3” is because he’s 64 years old, yet he looks at least as tall as Tom Welling in person, if not slightly taller. I could be wrong, but that’s my estimate.
Canson said on 28/Mar/20
@Dream: I must say Well Done! I had no idea that was the voice over for Super Mario either! He looks about what you said standing next to you. I can certainly see the estimate for Welling with you. Not 6’3 but 189cm range looks right. The pictures are awesome!
Dream said on 26/Mar/20

I'm curious. What do you think of the pictures with Tom Welling and Charles Martinet? I honestly think those are one of the best pictures taken, on my phone. I'm sure there are pictures, but I do like them, a lot.
Dream said on 20/Mar/20

I’m not sure he claimed a height, but when my family thought he was 6’4-6’5” range, I remember the top of his head and his footwear. I even looked at the height difference of Anthony Joshua and Rob, and compared it to myself and my neighbor. I was like “Wait a minute! This can’t be right! How is he only 6’4-6’5” range?!”

Heck, he even made my dad (who’s 5’11”-6’0”) look 5’9”. (Like how Richard Osman dwarfs Alexander Armstrong). He really didn’t look much different from Kane, in person!

I swear if he was 6’4”-6’5”, he has to be the tallest one, I’ve ever seen.

I swear if he was 6’4”-6’5”, Anthony Joshua would be 6’3.75” and that’s saying a lot, considering his terrible posture and footwear disadvantage.
Canson said on 18/Mar/20
@Dream: wow and he still claimed that? Lol I remember a guy being 6’6 maybe once doing that but then I’ve seen a 6’4 and change guy claim 6’6 before too. I think inflation at any height is bad but when you’re over 6’0” it’s completely unnecessary
Dream said on 16/Mar/20

Actually, I remember him having flip flops now. His footwear look at most, 0.1 inch, while I had near 1.5 inch boots. Comparing myself with my neighbor and comparing Rob with Anthony Joshua, my neighbor is at least a half inch taller than Anthony Joshua, despite the disadvantages he had, both footwear and posture.

He couldn’t be as low as 6’5” range. 197.803 is also too low. I would’ve thought he was at least as tall as Carmelo Anthony or even on par with Daniel Cudmore.
Dream said on 16/Mar/20
Truthfully, I think this listing is more than spot on.

Most people would’ve guessed Welling at 6’4”, but that shows how tall 6’2.5”-6’2.75” range people are. I don’t think he’s shorter than this.

At the same time, I would put Charles Martinet at least the full 6’3”, when he was younger. Up close, he isn’t any shorter than Tom Welling, even at 64 years old. He would be like a little taller. Both are over six foot two for sure.
Dream said on 14/Mar/20

The neighbor of mine? Comparing the height difference with Rob and Anthony Joshua, He is taller than Anthony Joshua, even with footwear disadvantage (I remember his footwear being similar to flat flip flops or flat shoes, while I had boots on) and posture worse than Idris Elba. He didn’t look much different from Kane, in person. He had to be over six foot five for sure.

If he was only six foot five, Anthony Joshua would be 6’4.5”-6’4.75”. And Kane 6’5.5”. He’s really tall, but his posture is worst than Idris Elba and Paul Bettany. Not necessarily completely bowing down, but his posture is just terrible, compared to Anthony Joshua and Kane.
Canson said on 12/Mar/20
@Dream: wow. I always thought you were that height. I assumed you were a 5’10 range guy out of bed. It happens though. If that’s your extreme low it means you could be closer to 5’9” on a normal day, say 5’8.75-5’9 range. But, That one guy you said claimed 6’5 but was really taller? Was he actually taller than he claimed or was it due to being a slight bit over on your previous estimate?
Dream said on 12/Mar/20
Rob, based on the pictures of them i showed you, do you think Charles could've been at least the full 6'3", when he was younger?

I remember seeing his height being listed as 6'3", on google. At first, I didn't really believe it, but after I met him and Tom Welling, I could buy the full 6'3", in Mario's heyday.
Editor Rob
I think it's safe to say he was that range.
Dream said on 11/Mar/20

It was self measurements, in the morning. I’m somewhere around 5’8.5”-5’8.75” at an absolute low.
Dream said on 11/Mar/20

Truthfully, Charles’s shoes didn’t look ‘bulky’ looking as Tom. It looked rather regular, while Tom’s shoes were quite bulky, which could add more than it looks.

I do agree Charles could be taller today, and definitely taller, peak.
Andrea said on 9/Mar/20
From the pics I've seen and posted, Tom's shoes look like a model of Air Jordan 1, which add just over 2 cms: Click Here . Charles' ones, I'd have guessed them more in the 3 cms range than 2, but it's harder to say...
That being said, I can see Charles doesn't seem a guy who stands well in pics, so even with more footwear, I can believe he's at least as tall as Tom, possibly a bit taller.
Canson said on 9/Mar/20
@Dream: were your 5’9.5 measurements self measurements or were they done at the doctor’s office?
Dream said on 8/Mar/20
Jeez, I typed like Mario 😂😂 Oops!
Dream said on 7/Mar/20

And yes. I was wearing red converse sneakers, that time. I’ve measured myself at 5’8 5/8”, multiple times, barefooted, with a measuring tape.
Dream said on 7/Mar/20

And yes. I was wearing red converse sneakers, that time.
Dream said on 7/Mar/20

In person, I don’t think Charles shoes were easily bigger than Tom. I think about the same. Tom’s shoes looked a lot bigger, in person, than in the picture. When I saw them up close, I thought it was difficult to Decipher who was really taller, between Tom and Charles. Charles shoes didn’t look that big, in person.

I have to mention a Charles isn’t a guy who stands with good posture. from a far, he seems a bit more hunchback, compared to welling, who had decent posture. At first, gave a Welling a taller impression, from a far, but when I got up close, it was difficult to tell who was really taller between the two.

Looking at the pictures, I honestly couldn’t see Tom as the taller of the two, but they were too close though. I could see Charles as the taller of the two, since Charles is 64 in age and could’ve lost height by then. Up close, I felt smaller next to Charles than next to Welling.

Btw, I couldn’t afford more than two people, at that time, so I was limited. Superman and Mario were the only guys, I was focused on meeting.
Andrea said on 6/Mar/20
That certainly looks a more believable range! 😉👍
I mean, to be honest, I wouldn't have guessed you over 173-4 with Tom, but if you are in converse there, 174-5 isn't hard to believe... Btw, from a quick research, his shoes didn't look big at that event Click Here , still bigger than converse for sure, but by no more than 1/4-1/3 inch I'd have said... and more like easily less than Charles' Click Here .
On a side note, it would have been interesting if you managed to take a photo with the other Smallville guys such as Rosenbaum and Glover who apparently were present too: Click Here
Dream said on 4/Mar/20

I used to. I was wrong. I'm somewhere between 5'8.5"-5'8.75" barefooted, at night. I'm a bit over 5'9" in the morning though.
Andrea said on 3/Mar/20
Nice pic(s), Dream... though didn't you claim to be 5'9.5? 😮
Dream said on 2/Mar/20

I also found out Charles was in a movie in ‘the Deadpool’ with Clint Eastwood and Liam Neeson. Maybe there would be some interesting scenes with them.

Charles/Mario was a very fun guy though! He may not have been a guy with good posture, but he had such a fun personality, probably because of being Mario for a while. Still though!
Dream said on 1/Mar/20

Like, here, I had converse sneakers while Tom had Nike Shoes. — Click Here

Charles has Nike shoes, but it didn’t seem as big as Tom’s shoes. We are both slouching. — Click Here

Truthfully, I have a hard time seeing Charles/Mario as low as 6’2”, even today. It was difficult to tell who was taller, between Charles and Tom, up close. If I’m just looking at the photos, Charles looks taller. Maybe he could be, but he’s definitely not 6’2” flat for sure.
Editor Rob
That's great you got them both, yeah I think they might be similar range.

Charles himself once described his height as being 6ft 4. I mean he could have shrunk by 64 now and have been 6ft 3-4 range peak.
Dream said on 29/Feb/20
Rob, I met Tom Welling in Galaxycon. You’re right about this listing.

Also, I also met Charles Martinet (the guy who voices Mario) and I was surprising how close he looked with Tom in height, in person, despite being 64 years old. I wonder if Charles could’ve been closer to 6’3”.

Tom has a bit more footwear than me and Charles, though.
Editor Rob
Yeah Charles is a tall guy, but I never got a photo with him as he is all over the place doing poses with people.

Editor Rob
I'd say in person comfortably above 200lbs, how much is debatable.
Xpac99 said on 18/Dec/19
Batista today at 50 lost a fraction respect to young age. You could make finally a case for peak height 6ft3 and today 6ft2 1/2. He looks about the same height of tom.
Xpac99 said on 18/Dec/19
Click Here
How is the difference in this pic between tom and Batista?
Editor Rob
Potentially Batista might appear taller, as I'd have said his posture was a bit looser.
Heitorsxxx said on 13/Dec/19
Rob, if Tom Welling is 189.2 tall, how much is the guy in this picture next to him?
Click Here
Editor Rob
Could be taller than myself an inch or so
Vsquad said on 10/Dec/19
Wow I'm surprised that Welling edged out Routh in that photo. IMO Routh gives a taller impression on his own than Welling does.
Editor Rob
seeing these guys together in person, they are for me too close to call...what's interesting is I witnessed with my own eyes Routh and Levi together, and Brandon really looked a comfortable inch shorter than Levi...albeit, Routh was in plimsole style sneakers so giving up a notable advantage...
Demon87 said on 15/Nov/19
You said that: editor Rob (at the moment i would have given bill goldberg the edge on tom)
Brock always looked closer to goldberg in fact you had put brock lesnar at 6ft2 1/2 at first and you have often repeated lesnar was somewhere in 6ft2 - 6ft2 1/2 range
Editor Rob:
(Goldberg and lesnar)
he's always been a guy who can look from 6ft 2 up to that photo maybe the angle might give him more than brock, but certainly he could be very similar if measured, 189 range.]
Tom Maybe is taller than lesnar, but lesnar half an inch shorter than 6ft2 1/2 guy is wrong
Demon87 said on 12/Nov/19
Who is taller tom or peak lesnar?
Editor Rob
I'd be surprised if Brock measured a big 6ft 2.5 range
Dave Riley said on 4/Nov/19
@Vtec is right. Tom Welling looks taller than Brandon Routh.

If both standing straight what is your guess about them?
Editor Rob
between 0.5 up to 1 inch between them in person.
Xpac99 said on 21/Oct/19
How is the difference of height between mark henry and tom today in your opinion?
Editor Rob
In person at most 1 inch between them. Welling holds himself with good posture when walking and generally standing around, but Henry is up and down...I can see how he looks 6ft 1-1.5 range in quite a lot of photos

Who Do you think could be taller, peak goldberg or tom welling?
Editor Rob
At the moment I would have given Bill the edge, but now he's probably going to be looking up a bit at Welling. He didn't have a huge amount on Gustin in Flash from what I remember. His posture though isn't that great, never was.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Sep/19
@177cm You had mention cowboy boots thats the illusion he made you think of 190cm barefoot. Truth he isn't over 189cm a low.

@Vtec Do you have a link to the video with Tom and Brendan Fraser?
177cm said on 28/Aug/19
I met him at a comic expo. He was wearing cowboy boots which gave him some extra height. He looked like he was at least 6'4" up close wearing those boots. I'd give him the 6'2.75 he claims.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Aug/19
Rob, maybe 2 to 3 hour maybe you met Welling he could have straight away hit 190cm.

If Tom Ellis was listed at 6'3" here appeared as the same height and sometimes lower than Tom Welling, shouldn't he be downgraded or Welling upgraded to full 6'3"?

Between strong 188 cm to 189 cm, yep, I agree with Rob, not over a 189 cm, he's like Brandon Routh.
Ian555 said on 20/Jun/19
Rob I actually think Welling could be 6’ 3” because every time he’s with John Schneider, he always looks he’s same height maybe just slightly shorter like in this photo here Click Here. In this photo with 6’ 1” Stephen Amell, he looks like a legit 6’ 3” with him Click Here. In this photo with Scott Patterson, who you have at 6 foot, Welling looks a solid 3 inches taller Click Here. In these photos with Tom Ellis, who you have at 6’ 3”, Welling usually looks just as tall as him Click Here, Click Here, Click Here, Click Here. In this photo with Kevin Costner, who is probably 6’ 0 1/2” at this point in his life, Welling looks a solid 2-2.5 inches taller than Click Here. So what do you think Rob? Is 6’ 3” possible for Welling?
Editor Rob
In person I wasn't convinced, and his almost 6ft 3 seems to be a range he measured. How much is almost though? Some guys go with 1/2, others 1/4, some even 1/8th!

Unsub 5'10 said on 13/Sep/18
Any chance of him being 6'3 out of bed?
Editor Rob
I'm sure there would be a string of women who might volunteer to find that out.

Haha,good one really.Would be funny if fans could help us that way.That said it's more than likely he cleans the mark,in fact he's probably 6'3.25 since a guy of his height will lose at least 0.75 during the day.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Jun/19
Tom head can't be 10". At most 9.75 inches and his eye level wasn't low set as 5" more like 4.75" on the dot". Height wise worst 6'2 3/8 not less.
Onabill Choudhury said on 13/Jun/19
Rob How big is his head? 10-10 1/2 Inches?
Editor Rob
At the very most 10 inches.
K.A 188 said on 28/May/19
6ft3 is 190.5 cm while Tom is few milimiters over 189 so he is on the lower side of 6ft3 or a very strong 6ft2. It's been years people have been comment here about is height along with brandon routh who is very similar to him.
Although i doubt if he has lost anything but i stil think he was 190 on the dot during his early smallville days.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/May/19
Welling peak weight is more like 185-190 range during season 1,2 of Smallville and about 208 now.
Nils2 said on 12/May/19
Well yes i picked the photo where he looked tallest. But out of all new photos he looks atleast 1.5-2 inches taller. And last time he looked barely an inch taller so i thought it was good to mention.
Nils2 said on 11/May/19
Hey Rob here he can look around 6'2.5 right? Saw a couple new photos with Amell where he looks taller
then last time.

Click Here
Editor Rob
You could argue 6ft 3 range (though in person he isn't that tall) there given he might lose a bit with a lean, but it could also be the photographer's position helps Tom's side a bit more.
viper said on 5/May/19
I was kidding.

But compare Welling to 207 pound Kyler Murray.
Velikisrbinnn said on 4/May/19
No way is tom welling 250 lbs. He looks 210 max to me in that picture
viper said on 3/May/19
Maybe there was a gentlemen's agreement with Tebow.

If he's 6-2 then he's the shortest looking 6-2 guy ever

Is Brandon Routh taller or Tom Welling taller? I would bet on Routh being taller
Editor Rob
Both are shorter than genuine 6ft 3 people I feel, but then can look taller than 6ft 2...somewhere in between and within a small fraction of each other I'd bet.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Apr/19
People now keep saying Tom is 6'2 flat and there is no way Justin Hartley is taller than Tom. Justin had a quote about Tom got him a bit by height. On Tom Welling being 6'2.5" in person will be legit if Hartley get the 2.25" although he only claim to be 6'2.

Rob what would you figure his weight is? 200 lbs?
Editor Rob
Over 200lbs in person comfortably I'd have said.
thi said on 10/Mar/19
Rob what's your height in cm? Google give me 172cm its that right? I got a fridge who has 170cm and it is below my nose level. How tall i can be
Editor Rob
5ft 8 flat is 172.72cm. At a small fraction over 5ft 8 I am right around 173cm.
If a 170cm fridge was just below the end of your nose, I'd expect you might be near 188cm.
brandon wood said on 8/Mar/19
He's 6'2.5 case closed. He's not 6'3 or anything over than that.
Nils2 said on 5/Mar/19
You can argue 6'1.75-6'2 with you and Stephen Amell. But then with other people, including people you have met he always looked 6'2.5 range atleast so if you think he looked over 6'2 in person it's reasonable i suppose.
I would actually be very surprised if he measured 6'2 or less.
Nils2 said on 3/Mar/19
If you are dropping height and he stands tall it's kinda hard to argue anything over 6'2. Atleast from the picture.
How much would u say u are dropping Rob?
Editor Rob
at most 5ft 7.5, I actually thought I overdid it. But I still don't think 6ft 2 flat for him!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Mar/19
Maybe your body type's different, in that you have a big upper body and small legs? I've never heard of a 190lb pound guy who's too big to wear some XL's. When I was 190, I even wore most L's fine. (LT to be specific since I'm tall) Now at 225 though, LT's are too small.
viper said on 28/Feb/19
I can wear XL fine. Just some brands really are more of a large than a true XL
Canson said on 28/Feb/19
@Christian: XXL is too big for me. I can do XL however and it fits.
Editor Rob said on 27/Feb/19

Tkazi said on 27/Feb/19
looks more like a 6'3"
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 27/Feb/19
Wearing XL at 225lbs shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. Canson's 220 and wears XL fine according to him. You might be accustomed to wearing loose fitting clothing if you're 190lbs and wear XXL. I don't how you can't wear XL at 190.
viper said on 25/Feb/19
Christian I'm surprised you can fit into a XL.

Yes, XXXL is big but I figure Welling could wear them without it looking too big on him.
Canson said on 25/Feb/19
@Christian: you’re right. That is only around 6” in the pic itself.
tkazi04 said on 24/Feb/19
He always looked 6'4" in SmallVille
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 23/Feb/19
Like Viper said, he's wearing a hat so it makes him look a bit taller. If you take away the hat, it looks just a 6 inch difference, like Viper and Andrea said. I doubt that Welling's actually as low as 6'2 1/8", but at least in the photo he sure looks it.

Do you realize how big XXXL is? I'm 225 lbs and even XXL's are a bit big for me, although I have no issue wearing them. XL's are a bit more snug, but certainly wearable. I guarantee you that XL's wouldn't look ridiculously small on Welling.
viper said on 23/Feb/19
He's big enough now to wear XXL shirts at a minimum. XL would look laughably small on him.

He can get away with XXXL
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Feb/19
@Christian Need to add another 1/8 more. Remember Rob is 5'8 1/8 at his low. Tom look 6'2 1/4 with rob but we don't know he could be taller in person or he had 1/4 less footwear than Rob.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Feb/19
I don't see 6'2.5" based on the photo. That just looks a 6 inch difference, so he looks 6'2 1/8".
viper said on 18/Feb/19
The hat is adding the illusion of Tom looking a tad taller IMO.

Thats no more than a 6 inch difference.
Andrea said on 18/Feb/19
To be fair to Jordan87, AAAA, I see where he's coming from because Tom actually doesn't look over 6'2 with Rob, and having seen other comments of his, he seems to base many of his estimates only on how celebrities look with Rob at the moment of the photo. Personally, I have a different approach and I think that Rob's photos give nothing more than a rough idea of how tall the celebrities he meets can be. In fact, what celebrities generally look and how tall Rob estimates them to be in person matter much more than Rob's pics with them, to me.
Speaking of Tom, I agree that 6'2.5 is overall the best guess. A chance of 6'2.25, but 6'2 flat? I doubt it.
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
Going off the pic with Rob I think a very strong 6’2 (6’2.25) up to the 6’2.5 listing could fit him. Looks 189ish
Pierre said on 18/Feb/19
By the scale 6"2' at the top of his cap then a little bit shorter,and the scale is imo a little bit low because Rob slouch imo
AAAA said on 15/Feb/19
Man, what is it with this guy?!?? Tom Welling and Pierce Brosnan are how I found this site back in 05. The fact that Rob actually got a picture with him only seems to have reinstigateged debate, not quelled it. I think 6’2.5 is the best guess. I used to say 6’2.75-6’3.25. I still think it is because he has a small head for his height. He’s def tall, but his proportions make him look even bigger without something else to scale against. Even in the pics with Routh, Routh has a big heaf and he has a smaller one with a short chin. He’s also the naturally largest of the 2. Crazy this debate is still happening.
Andrea said on 15/Feb/19
6'2 flat is still too low, though, moe. And you also said that Brandon Routh was about an inch taller than him in person, at 6'3, which is certainly not the case, if you look at them together: Click Here
Canson said on 15/Feb/19
@Jordan87: looking at him next to Rob he looks 6’2” range. I don’t know if a flat 6’2” but maybe a strong 6’2 to weak 6’3”. I agree with the listing here over the previous one but I won’t rule out 6’2.25 either. This spat culminated on other pages including Theler’s where Moe accuses me of things I didn’t do such as “hiding behind a computer and belittling stars”. That’s all because I don’t agree with his assessments on Theler and others and last I checked this is a free site but he makes it sound as if because he “claims” to have met someone that everyone else here must agree with him. I don’t know how saying a celeb doesn’t look as tall as they are is insulting them but I’ll digress. And It’s really no different than Moe saying Tim Robbins downplays his height which is borderline insulting if you ask me. Robbins claimed 6’4 1/2 before and 6’5 later yet he’s saying that he’s close to 6’6”. So if someone is going to tell me that me calling a celeb out about not being as tall as they claim or “accuse them of lying about their height” is insulting then saying someone is downplaying their height is no different. It’s just that Moe thinks that taller is better. And go look at Derek Theler’s page to see where Moe became belligerent with Joe, Bobby, and me all because our opinions differed from his saying things like “it’s no longer up for debate”. As far as proof, I don’t see any because if we are simply going off listed heights by Rob, he was closer all along being he’s now only 1/4” less than he was before Rob met him
Jordan87 said on 14/Feb/19
@ Thisismoe and Canson,

Canson your Qoate below
"@Moe: 2nd grade insults? Again you are the one who began insulting Bobby3342, Joe, and me all because we didn’t agree with you that he was that tall"

So Am I to say that Canson you don't think Tom is 6'2"? Moe claims he is saying Tom is 6'2 so im not sure what the story is and why you guys are arguing.

6'2" Seems fair Game. I think 6'1.5" is out and I also think 6'2.5" is out. Who the hell is saying 6'4 and 6'5"? What BS is that?
thisismoe!!! said on 10/Feb/19
@Jordan87, you seem mixed up. I'm the one who originally said that Tom Welling was 6'2 when everyone else was throwing around 6'3, 6'4 and 6'5 assertions.
Jordan87 said on 22/Jan/19
@ thisismoe,

Proof? He's not over 6'2 with Rob that's for sure. What proof do you have that would override a picture of a Measured 5'8" ( 1/8") Man next to Tom? Oh you don't that's right, nevermind. Hush Hush now, look at his picture with Rob .

It's not hard to find. I'll give you a hint. If you are reading this comment, you are really close to finding the picture I am referring to ;)
Edimar184 said on 27/Dec/18
Rob could you tell me please, how tall this guy looks with Tom Welling? He claim 181cm, but I don't think so.

Editor Rob
Not sure the guy looks as tall as 181 there, but 179 maybe
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Dec/18
Lets say he get measure at the doctor office in the morning around 10am almost 6'3 as he claim so he get 6'2 7/8 and he could have lost the 1/2 down at 6'2 3/8 lowest. I mean just guessing. 6'2-6'2 1/4 seem a little low. 189cm still believable.
Peter 179cm said on 23/Dec/18
Listing seems fine, although he looks more about 188cm in the pic.189 is the best guess ofcourse since he's a tall guy and 6.5 inches from bottom of nose to top of head is more common for that range.
Canson said on 28/Nov/18
“Jealous of certain celebs”. Quite humorous that you use that saying against anyone who doesn’t agree with you. You also told Joe that he was jealous of Theler. And you mention 2nd grade insults? Sounds to me like anyone who disagrees or says a celeb isn’t as tall as they’re listed is “jealous”? That sounds like fanboy talk to me Moe
Canson said on 28/Nov/18
“I actually post proof”

What type of proof?
Canson said on 28/Nov/18
@Moe: 2nd grade insults? Again you are the one who began insulting Bobby3342, Joe, and me all because we didn’t agree with you that he was that tall. I hadn’t insulted you at all prior to that. I posted Theler’s page here. Anyone is free to go to the very beginning and work their way up. They will are not only that you started the argument but how you portray yourself as childish arrogant and a know it all and then got belligerent because we didn’t modify our estimates to align with yours. So no don’t give me that anyone can see it because yours is in plain view. And just because you “claim to have met someone” are we all supposed to agree with you? Doesn’t work that way. And You even told Joe that it “is no longer up for debate”? That is what this site is for. So you’re getting on me for insulting you in retaliation to you insulting me (you actually began this whole thing)? Seems like you’re the 2nd grader because all of those insults you made to me below are a lot worse than what I said about you as I’m simply speaking the truth. You are a fanboy. Who is the 2nd grader now? Pouting just because we don’t agree with you then getting excited just because Theler says he’s 6’6? The response you made when you said Boo Yah says it all. You obviously want Theler to be a certain height whereas we do not care. We are simply saying that he does not look it. And if you didn’t realize it, I was the one who said Carmelo anthony was 6’6” in person and looked taller than theler. You even responded to that and even saw where I told Rob that I believed that Bo Burnham was taller than listed. But I get jealous? Lol you’re seriously a childish pathetic hypocrite. Again, quit ignoring this and look at Beginning of 2016 when you began insulting me just because I had my own opinion which is what this site is about. It isn’t “because Moe says he’s this height”. For all I know, you may not have even met Theler. That wouldn’t surprise me one bit.

thisismoe!!! said on 21/Nov/18
@Canson: You and your 2nd grade insults are just pathetic at this point. Just GTFO. I actually post proof. You're the one who's so jealous of certain celebs, you can't bear the thought of them being taller (namely Theler). Any sane person can see I know what I'm talking about. You and your bad arguments can beat it.
Canson said on 19/Nov/18
No Moe you’re insane. Look at your stupid comments such as trying to make Peyton Manning taller just to make Mangianello and Theler and telling others “it’s no longer up for debate”. The Boo yah only shows that you’re a fanboy. Nothing more than that.

Ud191cm said on 15/Nov/18
So is it official Rob, that you possible cannot tell apart a 6'2.75 from 6'3? And that most 6'2.75 estimated celebs are indeed 6'2.5 in person?
Editor Rob
All listings are still estimates. I think if he was measured I'd estimate with greater confidence he might measure nearer 6ft 2.5 than say 6ft 2 flat or 6ft 3.

@Dream - Kirk is very friendly and approachable. There's certain celebrities who fake friendliness, and you can pretty much tell that they're faking it, but Kirk is a naturally nice guy. Like I said before, Runyon or the Comedy Store is a great place to meet him. John Lithgow gets the top prize of all the people I've met in terms of genuinely a decent guy, but Kirk is up there.

Dream(5'9.5") said on 4/Nov/18

What was Kirk Fox like, in person?
Canson said on 2/Nov/18
@thisismoe!!: you just said it best! Internet trolls which is exactly what you are! You once said that Tim Robbins was over 6’5 near 6’6” when the man claimed his actual height several times. Rampage was correct however. “You are a loser troll who wastes time and energy denigrating the opinions of others”. How are you gonna “meet these people” when you don’t even work in show Biz anymore? Probably never did in the first place. I’m surprised that you were even hired in the first place seeing as how you are a cancer here attacking anyone who disagrees with your “alleged” first hand encounters with people! You’re pathetic seriously
Canson said on 29/Oct/18
@Junior: 1/4” is hard to tell. He could be that height and be 6’3 out of bed 6’2.25 at a low. That’s similar to how a guy claiming 6’2.5 will look.
thisismoe!!! said on 28/Oct/18
I like Canson just about as much as he likes me (maybe less). I have never commented on the height of a celebrity I've never met as if my speculation was fact. I actually meet these people and when I do, I always mention WHERE I met them. Unlike people like Canson who resent certain celebrities, and want to pretend said celebrities are height fakers so they can feel better about themselves. So we have people calling me a liar about Welling for years, only to find out after Welling does conventions that I was telling the truth. Whatever. Arguing this is nonsense, because internet trolls are impervious to sense. Tim Robbins ran the Actor's Gang in Culver City where anyone could go and meet him. Derek Theler went to the LA Fitness on Hollywood BLVD for years. I know what the heck I'm talking about. But you all go ahead and listen to Canson if you want.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Oct/18
I realised many actors just look strong 1/2 inch off the listing with Rob. I hardly think about Tom will be shorter than Brandon Routh. No way at all so those 6'2-6'2 1/4 guessing way too low.
TheBat said on 23/Oct/18
Very solid listing for Tom currently. He was around 6’3” when Smallville was airing on TV. Though I wish Tom returned as Superman for Supergirl instead of Tyler Hoechlin.
Zampo said on 23/Oct/18
6'2.25-6'2.5 range. I think a greater chance of him measuring nearer 6'2.25 in the afternoon. That being said, this listing seems reasonable.
Canson said on 20/Oct/18
@Dream: I didn’t like Moe at all because of the way he went about things especially on Derek Theler’s page as well as Tim Robbins’s page. You can see that Rampage even calls him out and Rampage is not usually one to do that unless provoked. Rampage is a very chill and respectful poster. However, I do agree with some of his other estimates, Welling being one of them. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Welling is actually closer to 6’2” than 6’3” (6’2.25 or 6’2 3/8 maybe). I also agreed with Moe about LL Cool J that he’s no more than 6’0”. That was clear when Michael Warren, James Worthy, Kobe and Eddie Jones were on In the House (at different times) along with Kim Wayans one of his co-stars. Moe had Padalecki at 6’4.5 which I don’t agree with. I have him at 6’4”. It’s possible with some of the taller guys that he may have had them taller than they are due to height difference from him or a difference in footwear. Logic even says with Theler that he wears thick footwear which he had on in the pic rob used for him. However Theler claims “I only wear very flat shoes”.
samson said on 12/Oct/18
I saw Tom Welling here shooting smallville here in Vancouver, I was up close to him and I'm 5'10 he didn't look that tall to me, my guess he's 6'2, also saw Rousenbuam he didn't look much over 5'11 so a inch on me
German Beryozkin said on 11/Oct/18
I would say he is legit 6’2.
Unsub 5'10 said on 11/Oct/18
He might look 6'2.25 in the pic but that is because his head is slightly tilted to one side.I can also notice he has a relaxed body posture, it's my guess he can easily pull off 6'2.5
Dream(5'9.5") said on 11/Oct/18

Moe always knew before Rob met him.

Even Zachary Levi gives a taller impression than Tom does.
Nik said on 11/Oct/18
Well, 5'7" is pretty ordinary in the scheme of things but anyways I love the above comment "He's like, "6-2 or 6-3."! For me 6'2.5" seems a fair call for Tom's height!
Canson said on 9/Oct/18
Agreed Dream. I’ve never thought he was a legit but figured maybe weak 6’3. Really looks strong 6’2”. Funny thing is Moe said that before and nobody believed him
Dream(5'9.5") said on 8/Oct/18

He really does look slightly taller than Routh.

Routh’s super thick hair makes it look like their the same, but Welling looks taller. Plus, a cap doesn’t add much.

@Christian maybe Welling had footwear advantage, but he doesn’t look any shorter than Routh, really.

@Canson Welling wouldn’t be as tall as 6’3” flat or higher. That would be more like J August Richards.
184guy2 said on 5/Oct/18
No , he don't
They look pretty much the same , like Rob said , you really need to measure them both barefoot to see who is in fact taller.
Canson said on 3/Oct/18
I figured he wasn’t a solid 6’3 but more I see, he looks a strong 6’2” vs weak 6’3”. Looks that way with Rob. That’s not half Inch over
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 1/Oct/18

I'm aware of that. Maybe Welling had slightly thicker footwear than Routh in those two pics.

He does edge out Brandon Route in the photos Rob linked.

Rob, would you consider 6’2 5/8ths” for Welling?
Editor Rob
In person I think it is hard to tell them apart, both I believe would measure very close. You need measurements to be sure of which might have a tiny advantage.
Obadiah Stane said on 27/Sep/18
6.3 for Welling,tall guy
I respect him cuz he doesn't have the need to wear lifts or platform shoes

Unsub 5'10 said on 13/Sep/18
Any chance of him being 6'3 out of bed?
Editor Rob
I'm sure there would be a string of women who might volunteer to find that out.
184guy2 said on 10/Sep/18
Well Rob fun fact ... in the pic that you posted in 2017 , he looked exactly 2 inches shorter than the 6'3 3/8 kids who nowdays is about 6'4-6'4.25 and he even had less footwear . He looks a legit 6'2 , kinda surprise that he is the same range of plumber , he looks easy 6'2 also in the Wedding photo with the 186 and 184 challengers .
Editor Rob
Because the plumber I generally seen more earlier in the day, my memory of him is overall taller than what he was in the HC.
Andrea said on 10/Sep/18
Do you think he genuinely (no error) got measured 6'1.5 once, on a bad day, similarly to the plumber? It is certainly quite hard to believe that he regularly dips to that mark, given that he was measured at a solid 6'2.25 in the HC NOT directly out of bed...
How do you think Tom would stack up with him?
Editor Rob
Yes he said that, he was measured that height before and was pleasantly surprised he got over 6ft 2 flat.
Tom looks taller in person up close, although I wouldn't say an inch though.
184guy2 said on 8/Sep/18
C'mon , both looks the same thing , considering that Rob measured a 6'2.5 guy ( who became 6'2 later on the day) , it's pretty safe to say they are the same height .
Editor Rob
That challenger was 6ft 2.25 bursting a gut not that long out of bed. Normally close to 6ft 1.75-2, although he does say he got measured 6ft 1.5 many years ago and that is what he used to claim.
Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Sep/18
I was going to ask that about footwear too because Rob doesn't look to be standing completely straight while Tom is standing casually, but doesn't look to me like he has a noticeable slouch or anything.
Unsub 5'10" said on 4/Sep/18
Yes, Welling looks 1cm taller than Brandon.
berta said on 3/Sep/18
rob did you have footwear advantage because in the photo i would have thought he was no taller than 188 cm. He and routh looks the same in their photos togerther. i did think both of them was 190 cm guys but i starting to think maybe tom could be 188,5-189 and routh legit 189
Editor Rob
He had no less than me.
Nils2 said on 3/Sep/18
Once again he looks quite near 6'3.. i thought Routh would edge him after seeing this photo of Tom.
But this is a good example why 6'2.5 is a good listing.
Andrea said on 2/Sep/18
Wow, finally the two Supermans have met each other!!!
To be honest, although we can't see their footwear, Tom does look easily taller than Brandon (in both the pics), but overall I think that somewhere around 6'2.5 is believable for them both. I really don't know who I would bet on as being the taller one between the two...
Meek said on 2/Sep/18
He just had photo ops with Brandon Routh. They seem about the same height. Tom usually wears vans shoes but I’m not sure what shoes Brandon was wearing.

If someone wakes up at virtually 6'3.5", there's virtually no chance they're 6'2" flat throughout the day.
Drake35 said on 28/Aug/18
Might be 6 feet and 3/8ths inches upon waking. Most of the day however, 6'2" flat is about it. Arguments claiming more or less than that are simply absurd.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 28/Aug/18
I wonder Tom went to his doctor office morning busting a gut measure at 6'2 7/8 (190.2) so he consistently saying he almost 6'3 and he was atually 6'2 5/8 and came before bed maybe 6'2 3/8 (189.9) certainly tiny bit taller than someone like Dax Shepard who was more like a strong 6'2 1/4.
Andrea said on 25/Aug/18
Well, even if he might dip to 6'2 flat at an extreme low, that really doesn't matter because that only happens under rare circumstances. It's like that study they conducted about the average height loss of football players after a match, which turned out to be 0.7-0.8 cms. Although it can be interesting to know how much you can lose under those extreme circumstances (even if I'm sure it would be a nightmare for certain posters on here), I certainly don't count that as your true height.
If Tom is about 189 at his normal low (which is very believable), then 6'2.5 (or 6'2.25 at the very worst) is a good shout for him.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/Aug/18
6'2-6'2.25" arguement for Tom Welling will have leave Alan Ritchson and Justin Hartley down to 6'1.5-6'1.75" range. I did go with Rob feeling since his the one met celebrities more often and took pictures standing close to them. If Tom Welling going to be just 189cm in person by Rob's eye then he is this tall. I wouldn't believe 190cm anymore. Routh would be the same too. Except for 6'2-6'3 claimed Geoff Stults who hold more chance to be measured at 6'2 5/8 than Welling and Routh.
Unsub 5'10 said on 22/Aug/18
He is definitely 6'2.5, just a bit taller than Justin Hartley.
Canson said on 22/Aug/18
@Rob: if you measured him in the afternoon hours and he’d be very close to 189, maybe 6’2.25 is a better fit
Slipdogg said on 21/Aug/18
@Crunchberries said on 16/Aug/18
6'2.5" seems accurate, but he may seem taller during to big feet (size 14), big hands, long arms, etc. Really hit some kind of genetic lottery.
I completely agree with your sentiments,Tom did hit the genetic lottery.The guy is over 6'2,has dark hair and light-coloured eyes(Green🍀🍀🍀).
I once worked as a photographer for a modelling organisation (part-time in college) and male models who were tall,dark-haired and had light coloured were EXTREMELY rare.In fact the only guy who had dark hair and green eyes was only 5'9.
Tom Welling would have easily become a successful model if he wanted to...Remember the guy was the face of the CW network from 2006-2011.I'm glad he decided to pursue acting cause it suits him better.
Andrea said on 21/Aug/18
Rob, do you think he could dip to 6'2 flat on a very bad day, kinda similar to how the plumber managed to get measured just about 6'1.5 (even if you yourself said that he generally is much nearer 6'2 than 6'1.5)?
Editor Rob
I think he after a long day maybe 6ft 2.25 or 6ft 2 flat after a heavy session in the gym, but I believe if I measured him he'd be close to 189 during the afternoon on normal occasions.

I honestly never met one who had all the three qualifications.Tom was easily the face of the CW network(2006-2011).
If Tom Welling would have pursued a modelling career,he would have been become the face of a huge brand.I'm he didn't though.Acting suits him much better.
Unsub 5'10 said on 19/Aug/18
According to the height chart, he looks more like 6'2.25 which does not mean I'm ruling out 6'2.5
AAAA said on 17/Aug/18
I always pegged him anywhere from 189-191. 6’2.25-6’3.25. I think that would be his daily range. I’ve also always thought he had a small head for his height,which made him look proportionally taller than others his height with big heads. Kinda like in superhero comics how all the hero’s are 9 heads tall. There is an old pic of him, Schneider, and Annette O’Toole in front of a barn where this is pretty clearly shown. Similar to how a man and woman of identical height. The woman is usually perceived as taller because her head is shorter, chin is higher. Etc.

Andrea said on 16/Aug/18
Why would some people "steal" your photos with height charts, Rob? 😕
Anyway, if the height chart is "correct", he indeed doesn't look any less than 6'2 here (although not much over it either). To be honest, I thought your hair gave a bit less than what the 5'8 line suggests...
Editor Rob
Well, they have kindly agreed to stop. I put myself tiny bit over 5ft 8 to compare.
aknawkneemoose said on 14/Aug/18
rob i don't know what it is about his posture nowadays. in smallville he always stood tall, enough to square up with john schneider. i know he beefed up a bit after smallville and it seemed like that's when he started looking a bit smaller. could have done one too many deadlifts? is it even possible for him to have lost height at 41?
Editor Rob
In person he still looks a tall guy, with good posture, just 25 pounds heavier.

If he had herniated discs or any serious back injury, that can always cause early loss, but I would be surprised if he really lost any height at all.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Aug/18
Surprise with Welling downgrade 1/4 by Rob. He can really look 1/2 inch taller than Justin Hartley in Smallville.
cade said on 12/Aug/18
I saw Tom welling up here in Vancouver while shooting smallville. I saw him up close, I'm 5'10 he didn't look that tall to me, my guess he's 6'2
viper said on 12/Aug/18
Some said he was 6-5.
grizz said on 12/Aug/18
There is no way he lost any height in his 40s. I mean, if Tom Cruise hadn't lost more than a 0.25in (he's 56 and constantly suffering injuries from doing stunts), if Sylvester Stallone hadn't lost more than 1in (72 y.o. constantly injuried while shooting movies), then I see no argument for this guy losing any of it. He didn't have any back related injuries, he isn't a weightlifting champ and he has a solid posture.
@abcde, I agree with your listing. Based on that, the most desirable height for men would be the 185 - 193 range with the 1st half of that range being the optimum height IMO (185-189). If you hit 187-8 cm, you're golden.
Mickie said on 10/Aug/18
While shrinking by early 40s is possible, I'd guess the overwhelming majority don't shrink by any appreciable amount at this age. Maybe someone who is a trucker, smoker, overweight, into heavy weightlifting, and genetic predisposition to it will ship a cm or 2. But probably not Tom Welling.
abcde said on 10/Aug/18
Rob do you agree?
very short under 165 cm
short 166-173 cm
medium 174-179 cm
quite tall 180-184 cm
tall 185-193 cm
very tall 194-199 cm
giants over 200 cm?
Editor Rob
This might be how many view height, plus or minus a cm here or there.

Tom Welling falls into a comfortably tall range. In Hollywood he certainly could claim 6ft 3 or 4 to people and they will believe him.
SD(172cm) said on 10/Aug/18
I don't think he's lost any height 41 is STILL too young plus he hasn't had any injury that would make him lose any height...190cm SOLID

Wow I never noticed that...He's met 3 Superman actors,but not a single Batman actor.

@ShortAndSweet said on 2/Aug/18
Judging by the comments,Tom seems to be very popular...I'm willing to bet a small fortune that this will be the most popular page this week.He's going to beat another Tom(whose Tall(5'7),dark and handsome)Cruise.

He legitmately looks like a tall,muscular guy no wonder he's castmates on Smallville overstate his height.

Well he wasn't the most popular page this week.Tom Cruise is still number one...Tom Welling is number 4.Pretty popular more than Justin Bieber.
Nils2 said on 9/Aug/18
He did not lose any height yet that's kinda ridiculous to assume.
Btw a guy at my gym who trained and competed in powerlifting for over 40 years and is today 61 years old did not lose any height. If anything i believe it helped him maintain a solid posture.
For someone to lose height in his early 40s, if it's not caused by hunched back is extremely rare.
Canson said on 9/Aug/18
@Viper: it’s definitely more possible to lose height even at that age. It may not be a lot maybe just 1/2”. Jimbob a poster here has even said he’s lost half inch in his late 30s to early 40s
viper said on 8/Aug/18
He's only 41. Better chance you win 500 million lottery
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 8/Aug/18
@Viper Some people can lose height in their 40s if they’ve done a lot of heavy weight lifting, with it being powerful enough to fracture their discs in the spine, or if they engage into some extremely intense physical activities in the long term. Sometimes one’s daily habits, or their genetics can cause for someone to shrink a noticeable amount in height as well in their 40s. I’m not convinced that this is the case for Tom Welling, however.
viper said on 8/Aug/18
Oh come on. Hardly anyone loses any height in their 40s
fish said on 7/Aug/18
He is in his 40s my guess would be..
Peak: 6'2.75"
Current: 6'2.25-6.2.5"
Same as the Rock, he could habe lost 1/2 inch due to his heavy weight, keep in mind this guy is probably above 225lbs=100kg for the last 10-12 years (maybe even bigger).
Canson said on 6/Aug/18
6’2 and some change
viper said on 6/Aug/18
Top of Rob's head is just above the tip of his nose. At 6-3 5-8 is at the tip of my nose
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 6/Aug/18
solid 189cm guy
viper said on 6/Aug/18
He looks a full 6-2 in the pic, and the height chart shows it
Nils2 said on 6/Aug/18
6'2 flat is possible i think.. he didn't look over 6'2 with Stephen Amell either.
In past i thought he looked more closer to 6'3 but Hartley could be 6'2, Schneider 6'2.5, Rosenbaum 5'11 and Welling had footwear advantage on all.
Also Tom ellis can't be full 6'3 after seeing this photo..
At the end of the day maybe 6'2.5 is decent listing overall for Welling but he surely could measure under it.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 6/Aug/18
Actually, the more I look at it, the more I'm convinced 6'2.5" is solid.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 5/Aug/18
He easily looks to be under 6’2” with the height chart up above (if you were to remove the hat), but we can all agree that he’s not under 6’2”. Is 6’2 1/4” at all possible, Rob?
Editor Rob
I don't think a cap like that would any more than half inch, but he still seemed over 6ft 2 flat.
Andrea said on 4/Aug/18
Could you add the height chart then? 😊
Editor Rob
Well I'll make an exception for Tom.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 4/Aug/18
So, Rob. J August would definitely be taller than Tom Welling? If so, I have no problem with that!
Editor Rob
I would estimate Richards as a bit taller in person.
Israel-6'2 said on 4/Aug/18
tom should wake up easily 6'3.25. example I agree with 1.90.6 and I will sleep with 1.87.3 but I say that I have 1.88, that 1.89.2 should be his final height, so to the statement of 6'3, but Rob Who do you think is greater brandon or tom?
Andrea said on 4/Aug/18
Hmm. So he basically looks just around 6'1.5 here?
Again, how tall do you think he'd look next to the plumber, under similar circumstances?
Editor Rob
I wouldn't say he looked under 6ft 2 in the photo.

viper said on 4/Aug/18
You can't help yourself can you Andrea
Andrea said on 3/Aug/18
Rob, how much do you think his cap adds to the top of his head? He really does look just under 6'2 here, INCLUDING all of it...
Of course, I would never guess him that short though. As I said (BEFORE you met him in person), 6'2.25 is the absolute lowest I can see him at. That being said, how do you think he'd stack up next to someone like the plumber from the HC on a "non-plumbing day"?
Editor Rob
I'd say close to half an inch, I mean if he had it off, his hair may well have looked similar range as a cap...
Andrea said on 3/Aug/18
"viper said on 1/Aug/18
ONE OF THE FEW I'VE BEEN WRONG ON. Thought he was no more than 6-1ish.

It's a different story when you see the person up close"
LOL, you're a very optimistic person, aren't you, viper? 😊
But well, at least you now admit that your 6'1ish "estimate" (if you can call it that way) was BS, even if there was certainly no need for Rob to meet him to realize that...
Borats Chicken said on 3/Aug/18
Rob, he looks like he has the same head length to you
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 3/Aug/18
@Jordan87 Lol, I’m shocked that we’re agreeing here. Anyhow, how tall would you guess that Brandon Routh is? I would say that Tom Welling certainly can’t be 6’2.5” if Brandon is 6’2.5” himself. Especially if Rob says that there is no difference in footwear between him and Tom in the above photo.
viper said on 2/Aug/18
IMO could be as low as 6-2.25. This listing is fine though

Great listing . Was he nice in person Rob as he seems very relaxed in the photo with you.

He seemed friendly that day with people.
spainmen192cm said on 2/Aug/18
Finally Rob! I dont think he is over this listing to be honest. Could he even be 6ft2.25?
Editor Rob
Well I can understand estimates from 6ft 2.25 up to 2.75. If he measured outwith that zone I'd be surprised....unless it's out of bed, and I'm sure he clears 6ft 3 then.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Aug/18
Rob, maybe 6ft2⅝?
Editor Rob
Like for any listing, you could argue above or below it, when you are talking small fractions like that. I think he is honest saying he was almost 6ft 3. It's just the definition of 'almost' for one man might be 1/4, another man 1/2.
berta said on 2/Aug/18
he also looks pretty heavy here like 105 kg maybe?
berta said on 2/Aug/18
i though he looked like a 190 guy over the years but after seeing this photo i guess 189 is better. One photo isnt enough to judge height from but if rob thought 189 is better then i believe him. 188 is to short and 191 is to mutch. he is either 189 ore 190.
F97 said on 2/Aug/18
Rob did he look taller in person than Justin Hartley?
Editor Rob
I think they can seem within same range, barefoot they may well be quite close when measured.

I saw that Zachary Levi and John Scheineder were also in the Con. Did you see they next each other (including Tom ) ?
Editor Rob
I did see Zachary briefly, but he still seemed a decent 6ft 3, I think the 3.25 is always possible still but I don't know if he really could measure 6ft 4.
John didn't seem much different than Tom, it's possible he's 6ft 2.5 now.
viper said on 1/Aug/18
One of the few I've been wrong on. Thought he was no more than 6-1ish.

It's a different story when you see the person up close
viper said on 1/Aug/18
It's wild how big he is now. Lumberjack big. Don't know about 230 but yeah 215 absolute minimum
viper said on 1/Aug/18
Rob, got to get rid of that grey :)
Editor Rob
You won't see me buying Grecian 2000 or anything like that, I expect by age 50 i'll be much more grey.
Tunman said on 1/Aug/18
So no longer 6'2.75?Could have thought he was closer to 6'3 than many persons,especially John Schneider.Interesting to see that in person height brings some surprises.In fact he looked very close to 6'3 next to legit 6'4 Padalecki
Editor Rob
Well John can look 6ft 2.5 range too, at least in recent years.
Mickie said on 1/Aug/18
6'2.5" is a really good listing, especially here with Rob. Is a tall guy, but doesn't look a big 190 cm + ... He's 6'2.5" in my book.
Zampo said on 1/Aug/18
Not sure if this is a good photo to judge. I agree with Andrea, Looks about 6'2 here at most (unless he posture was more relaxed).
AAAA said on 1/Aug/18
HOLY CRAP I DON'T BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!!! Awesome pic Rob! I think I've been waiting on this photo for close to a decade. The next one is a standing Padalecki!!!
Jordan87 said on 1/Aug/18
@ Celebheights 6'1.5" ,

" He doesn’t look as tall as Brandon Routh does "

I actually agree with you on something. This Depresses me.
Editor Rob
I'm not sure I could tell a difference whether Routh would be taller than Tom, I feel they are close...
184guy said on 1/Aug/18
He looks at least visible taller than someone like Ray Fischer
QM6'1QM said on 1/Aug/18
Wow! Rob, it's absolutley amazing photo, respect. I think he's more 6'2.25" than 6'2.5".
Dream(5'9.5 said on 1/Aug/18
Rob, I notice that your old listings are quite the most accurate listings.

You originally had Tom at this, changed it to 6'2.75", and changed it back to 6'2.5" when you met him in person.

Who gave a taller impression, Thomas F. Wilson or Tom Welling.
Editor Rob
Wilson does have a pretty big head in person, longer than Tom's, but Wilson still seemed a solid 6ft 2 and change range at least, I don't know if there is much between those 2 Tom's.

Almost 6ft 3 can cover 6ft 2.5-2.75, it's like Routh...he eventually came out with the 6ft 2.5 but earlier in 2006 was called almost 6ft 3, which he may well have told a journalist.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 1/Aug/18
Weird thing is...

He still looks shorter than Brandon Routh.
Jordan87 said on 1/Aug/18
When Lined Up Next to Brandon Routh's Picture, He is actually Shorter than Brandon I think. His Eye Level isn't above 5'10 which points to him being 6'2, maybe 6'2.25" Tops.
SD(172cm) said on 1/Aug/18
Anyway Tom Welling looks like a big dude(@Editor Rob,How much do you think he weighed???),I mean look how broad his chest and shoulders no wonder he played Superman,A NFL Quarterback and a Secret Service Agent.He looks imposing(WELL OVER 6'2) but approachable all at the same time.
Editor Rob
He might weigh 220-30 range. In this photo I am around 164 pounds.
Nik said on 1/Aug/18
This listing seems a decent and honest one! It is clear that Tom is 6 ft 2 and change, I will offer him 6'2.5"!
Andrea said on 1/Aug/18
Great, Rob! 🤩🤩🤩
To be fair, he doesn't look over 6'2 here, but 6'2.5 is quite believable and probably the best fit overall. That being said, what's the lowest you can see him measuring at?
How was he in person?
I still can't believe you finally met him! 😭😭😭
Editor Rob
Well, as a Smallville fan myself I was glad he finally started attending events and to manage to add his photo to the site. He seemed relaxed at this event and interacting with fans.
For me, he seemed over 6ft 2 but not as tall as 6ft 3, I would go with 2.5 personally for him.
Colberto said on 1/Aug/18
Looks about 6 1/2" on you so he's a weird fraction between 2 1/2" and 2 3/4". I'd say he's 189.5cm.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 1/Aug/18
He doesn’t look as tall as Brandon Routh does. Did Tom Welling have less footwear than you did?

Our footwear was within a few mm that day.

Cool that u finally met him. Comfortably over 6'2 but not as near 6'3 as i thought.
I'll admit that the young fanboy inside me may have fooled my perception ;)
184guy said on 31/Jul/18
Now that he is no more on the spotlight he does that....

Did you seen him up close and was able to guess his height ?
Editor Rob
Yes, I will put Tom up very soon.

in fact as I type this I will do so.

In person and beside a few other folk that weekend I think I would settle on Tom looking like a guy who was around 6ft 2.5 range, I believe if measured he would be in that range.
184guy said on 30/Jul/18
Have you seen Tom this weekend in London ?
Editor Rob
yeah he's went from avoiding them during all of smallville to now accepting that cons aren't that bad really, folk are there as your fans and willing to pay for an auto or photo.

Some of these actors are earning quarter of a million pounds for a weekend work at a convention.
thisismoe! said on 26/Jul/18
Look how tall Tom Welling is. How he absolutely towers over Mike Rosenbaum. Oh wait! He doesn't... And yet the Smallville cast used to pretend he was 6'5! lol
