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."

5ft 8 Rob and Tom @ LFCC 2018
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.

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.

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.

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.
184guy said on 5/Aug/18
@Rob I didn't get it
Why you are no more making height charts. Who's copying without your permission ?
Editor Rob
It's not so important the "who", but to grab hundreds of photos and try to profit off the back of them is a little bit disrespectful 😏

It costs a lot to acquire original content for CelebHeights 😲

£46 for a photo with Tom doesn't include the ancillary costs like Travel and Hotel.

£900 for 27 usable photos from LFCC 2018. Hotel is £500. Travel £220.

So the average cost of meeting and getting a photo from that event was £60.
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.
Editor Rob
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.

184guy2 said on 1/Aug/18
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?
Editor Rob
Our footwear was within a few mm that day.
Nils2 said on 1/Aug/18
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

Agreco said on 24/Jul/18
Strong 6’2”
Canson said on 21/Jul/18
@Junior: there is always a chance that he dips to the mark. 6’2.5-.75 could cover “about 6’3”. He may have measured that at some stage early morning and be 6’2.25 like Andrea said. On the flip side, there is a chance that the 6’2.5-.75 is his low. There was a poster named Moe who claimed to have met him and guessed 6’2” in person.
Andrea said on 18/Jul/18
Yeah, DaMan, at this point, me too, I think that anywhere around 6'2.5 (6'2.25-6'2.75) is possible for him, even if he really struggles to look even 6'2 in more than one picture with Amell for some reason. Back to Smallville, he actually looked much nearer 6'3 than 6'2, but he also was in quite big boots most of the time, so he did have a decent footwear advantage over the majority of the cast. Coincidentally, I've seen an old episode on TV the other day, the one where Alan Ritchson first appeared, if I'm not mistaken, and although he certainly looked noticeably taller than Alan (no less than 3 cms), he also had a noticeable footwear advantage over him, probably not much less than an inch, considering that he was in his usual 1.5 inches or so boots versus Alan's quite thin flip-flops. So although I still think that he's taller than both Alan and Justin (who I doubt is any less than 6'2, regardless of how tall he looks with Rob), maybe it's not by that much after all. Hopefully, Rob will meet him soon, so we'll see...
DaMan said on 18/Jul/18
I’ve always pegged Welling @ 6’2.5”. He was dwarfed by Kane, looks really close to Schneider and clearly edges 6’1.5”-6’1.75” guys like Hartley, which is the height Hartley looks in his photo with Rob.

Tom honestly looks a flat 6’2” at best with Amell, but that could really be anything without seeing the feet.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Jul/18
@Andrea there is no chance he is only 6'2.25" looking at him next to 6'2.25" Justin Hartley a solid half inch differences most of time. 6'2.5" can be argue at lowest. Tom and Hartley both same age at 41 so neither one of them are losing height yet. I just Tom had some tendency to wear flat sneakers that could make him look as low as 6'2 if the other actor had more footwear advantage.
Andrea said on 4/Jul/18
Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. I've read some very interesting names at that event, although Tom certainly remains the most interesting one, from my point of view. Let's just cross the fingers... 🤞🤞🤞
It will certainly be interesting to see how tall he looks in person. I must say that those pics with Amell kinda destabilized me, but I agree with Nils2. Although there's probably a good chance he's shorter than 6'2.75, the absolute lowest I can see him at is 6'2.25. And even that mark can certainly seem too low at the time of Smallville...
Editor Rob
There are instances he is looking 6ft 2-2.5 range lately, but we'll see, sometimes people as we know appear taller/shorter in some photos than they do up close.
Andrea said on 29/Jun/18
Rob, are you finally going to meet him? 😊
Editor Rob
If he turns up at a convention I will of course meet him...I will hope he doesn't cancel!
Canson said on 10/Jun/18
“Almost 6’3” could mean that he measured a hair under in the morning or the afternoon. He is similar to a guy like Idris Elba, although I think he may edge Idris. But taking the two scenarios, he could measure 6’2.5-.75 in the afternoon or in the morning and just be 6’2.25 or 3/8. He doesn’t look as low as a flat 6’2
Andrea said on 28/May/18
Well, there's no doubt he's taller than Stephen. The question is how much. I would have said easily 2 inches, but it is certainly hard to believe there is as much as that from those pictures they took at those events. I mean, if I didn't know Tom and hadn't seen anything else of him, I probably wouldn't have guessed him over 6'2 with Stephen. But again, I'm still not sure about Stephen's footwear in those photos. I know Tom wasn't in big shoes: Click Here

In this one, Tom Welling seems taller than Stephen Amell.

It should be said: Seem much taller than Stephen Amell. A flat 190cm guy for sure much taller than flat/weak 185cm guy.

@Junior: always a chance at 6’2.5 because that won’t look any different from 6’2 5/8, but I really couldn’t go lower than that. A weak 6’3 seems almost a good fit when he’s guessed by people at 6’2/6’3 as often as he is. He would measure how Rob has him listed even if he drops to 6’2.5. I could see an easy 6’3-6’3.25 out of bed

6'2 5/8 was the worst for Welling to get measure with.

Im unable to find a good pic of Amells shoes in that outfit but in other outfits at same event he is wearing a thicker shoe.
Trumpster said on 25/Apr/18
Solid 190cm dude. Man this guy is the biggest genetic lottery winner of all time, handsome af, perfect height and all around big guy.
Robbe said on 25/Apr/18
It's just the camera angle fooling, i think. Routh is also struggling to look 6'2 with Amell.

Click Here

99% of the pictures i have seen, Welling and Routh appears around 190cm, so reckon they are.
Andrea said on 23/Apr/18
Yeah, he can really look even barely 6'2 at that event for some reason. If he was older, I could believe he's lost something, but, although he looks a lot different than how he did on Smallville, he's only 40, so I doubt he has lost more than a few mms, IF he really did...
At the time of Smallville, I think he could easily pull off looking near 6'3. I mean, he could really look near 4 inches taller than Michael Rosenbaum (who I doubt is any less than 5'11), comfortably taller than genuine 6'2 guys such as Alan Ritchson and Justin Hartley, no shorter than John Schneider, etc. Now, it's known fact that he often wore quite big boots on the show which can certainly have made him appear taller than he is at times, but 6'2 flat does seem too low. Of course I wouldn't rule out something like 6'2.5, but I'd be surprised if he was much under that. I hope that Rob manages to meet him sooner or later...
moe! said on 17/Apr/18
I told you all for years that Tom is not 6'3 and that I met him. And you all didnt believe. I met Tom and Brandon. Brandon Routh is taller. Tom is 6'2. Just look at the pics of Amell next to Tom compared to that with Routh. Also Mike Rosenbaum is 5'10, maybe a weak 5'11. Saw Mike on Hollywood Blvd a few years back
Bobby said on 15/Apr/18
He used to have a listing of 6'4 when he was on Smallville, guess he was never quite that tall, but I can see a legit 6'3 for this guy. Lowest he'd measure is 6'2.5 I'd say. So, a weak 6'3 guy, but him saying 6'2 flat is downgrading himself by almost an inch, he's more likely to look 6'3 than 6'2 at 190cm.
Nils2 said on 14/Apr/18
Hm maybe his small head and boots makes him look a legit 6'3 at times..
The pics with Stephen are actually great to draw a conclusion from.
I think 6'2.5 is still likely but it's hard to believe the current listing there's just no chance of 2 inch difference from several pics with Stephen.
6'2.5 is still accurate to his claim anyways and was the old listing i believe.
The absolute lowest i could see is 6'2.25 for Tom.
HoldOnSmallville said on 5/Apr/18
I think It depends from the camera or the fact that Tom is Kinda leaning, look here top with micheal rosenbaum. Btw im Pretty sure Tom is no less than 189

Welling at that convention is struggling to look much over 6ft 2 in his double photos with Amell and fans, although in some of them he could be slightly further from the camera.

Also noticed Cress Williams and J August.

I thought he was 6-1 originally. If he measured say 6-1.5, it wouldn't surprise me too much.

His modeling card said 6-2
Nils2 said on 4/Apr/18
Tom looks no more then 6'2 with Stephen in that pic..
Probably something to do with the shoes.
Derk said on 2/Apr/18
OK I was freaked out about Tom's photos with Stephen Amell, but I had a look at some of their other photos from that event and there's no need to panic lol. It seems to be the camera's fault because Mike Rosenbaum also got a few pictures with Tom and he barely looks shorter than him, than he should. Since Amell is taller than Rosenbaum he'd obviously look closer to Welling, and he does... or rather almost identical. But again, it seems to be because of the camera. You can argue Tom might have lost a bit more height that day which is fine, but its mainly the camera from what I've seen.

Oh and I checked Tom and Amell's footwear. Both are wearing vans, no boot trickery from Amell.
SD(171CM) said on 2/Apr/18
I'm speechless,Click Here I could have sworn he was 6'3 solid,but in this photo he looks 6'1 but he's way bigger/broader than Stephen Amell.
Andrea said on 2/Apr/18
Oh, I see. That's a real shame! Well, at least he has started doing events now... Let's just hope he doesn't stop, so that, sooner or later, you will finally meet him!
Editor Rob
I'm hopeful one day!
Andrea said on 1/Apr/18
Really??? What do you mean by "I couldn't risk any money on"? Is too expensive? 🙁
As for that picture with Stephen, yeah, Tom looks surprisingly not much taller than him... When you see him with Michael, though, I think he can still look at least 3 good inches taller than him: Click Here
Editor Rob
A new convention company, but a few red flags for me to think it might not be guaranteed to go ahead.
It's early may and they had only sold about 60 packages out of 570 by last week.
So they ditched their expensive pricing model for other packages I suppose to try to make it work...

Train+Hotel+ticket just a lot of money for a few guests from lucifer basically, well Welling of course is a big name, I'm disappointed another organiser didn't try to get him first!
Felipe said on 31/Mar/18
Well, this is interesting!
Is Tom Welling shorter than we think or is it Stephen Amell that's taller?
Wish I could see their feet.

unfortunately he seems to be doing one in UK that is a complete 'unknown' type event, one I couldn't risk any money on.
Andrea said on 15/Mar/18
That's a great idea, Rob, recovering all the older messages for every page! Although I wonder who is willing to read every single one of them... 😅
Speaking of Tom, I wouldn't have expected him to be so discussed in the past!!! Hell, about 3000 comments? That's the kind of number you'd expect for "big" celebrities like Sly, Brad Pitt or Justin Bieber!
That being said, I must say that it is quite entertaining to see viper trying to convince people that Tom was no more than 6'1 and possibly even 6'0, LMFAO! 😂😂😂
Editor Rob
There was still a chunk of comments that are lost forever from certain years, but I have recovered as much as possible.

They are now there, should anybody want to 'go deep' into an actor and read all their comments.

There's a few surprising 'comment totals' now for some actors...the unfortunate thing with the web is that over time Link-Rot becomes a big issue.

URL site structures change, services go behind paywalls, or cease to exist...or the expired domains get bought up and act as redirects to other sites/ads. So a lot of old links I'd never even bother clicking as they'll go nowhere.

I kept the URL structure on celebheights star pages the same since 2004, though it was a mistake actually - I had forgotten to include a lowercase function and so all the star names were like First-Last-id - this was never the intention, they were supposed to be first-last-id 😀

It's hard to believe Welling is less then 6'3 sometimes.
KH said on 20/Feb/18
Might have a quarter inch on Ellis although in those pictures we can't see there shoes and Ellis is not standing quite as straight in either shot. 6'3 seems right to me. Looks like he has put on a little weight.
Andrew111 said on 4/Feb/18
In this picture he looks like a 6'3/6'4 guy Click Here
anyone saying he's under that height is wrong, in every picture he towers over everybody my best guess is that he is a 1'91/ 1'93 no less (at least in Smallville) now a days I think he is a 1'89/1'90 guy. Any thoughts?
SD(171CM) said on 29/Jan/18
In this video: Click Here
Tom Welling and Tom Ellis have a sit down interview at 0:16 and 2:35.Tom Ellis keeps mentioning that he's and Tom Welling are both 6'3.It's kinda fitting that the guy who played Superman is 6'3 and humble and the guy who plays Lucifer is 6'3 and kinda smug about it...
I don't know why,but I've met plenty of tall guys,and some of them will CONSTANTLY remind you how tall they are...e.g..Tom Ellis...while the other fraction of tall guys,will downplay the fact that they are tall...e.g.Tom Welling.
Dark Lord said on 12/Dec/17
I am 6'-3.25" on a tall day and he is just a bit shorter than me, but we are both about 6-4 in dress shoes. I would be willing to say a half inch on average.

Although in lucifer tom Ellis as lucifer says he is 6-4. I don't buy it, just shorter than me.
Alex 6'3 said on 24/Nov/17
He looks a weak 190 cm, he could be a 6'3 in the morning, around 189 cm the rest of the day, with a good 188 cm at his lowest during dinner time. So, 189 cm (6'2.5) should be right.
SD-5'8(172CM) said on 19/Nov/17
@Chippah said on 21/Oct/17 I agree with you he has to be 6' least in the morning
Link to Inside of Tom Welling by Michael Rosenbaum Click Here And they make several references to height...
Tom Welling's height references= 3:57,4:05,6:14,19:18-19:33. 5'3 in his teens and his height was a hindrance to his modelling career...
Michael Rosenbaum's height references = 4:34,11:43,13:47. 4'11 in his teens and he's dad is/was 6'5
Tom Welling was 5'3 in his early teens and Michael Rosenbaum was 4'11 in his early teens...It's ironic that both Clark Kent(Superman) and Lex Luthor grew a whole foot through their teens...I only grew 2 I wish it was 5 to 7 inches...
Most guys Tom Welling's height would claim 6'5

Chippah said on 21/Oct/17
This is a post I'm cross referencing - I initially posted this on Allison Mack's page - since I feel it's pertinent here too:

I recently discovered a video Allison Mack posted on her own YouTube channel that dates back to 2007 (yep, 10 years ago, time flies).

It's a Q&A titled 'Ask Allison: Part 2'. And on the latter part of this very video she was asked - by a fan - 'how tall she was' and she then promptly went on to say 'I'm five foot five' and that they made her wear 4 inch heels on Smallville as well as walk on some sort of ~5 inch high platform whenever she had a scene with Tom Welling, who - in her own words - 'is a giant, like really, really ostentatiously tall'

Here's the time stamped Youtube link:
Click Here

In other words, I still think Tom might really stand at 6'3 tall, at least in the morning.

And if there are any Smallville fans in here, Tom Welling recently went on Michael Rosenbaum's podcast where they had a chat about the show that lasted over an hour. It's called 'Inside Michael Rosenbaum' but I'm sure if you just type 'Tom Welling, Michael Rosenbaum' on Youtube you should find it, and yes, it's on video, but they're sat on a sofa so height comparisons are not optimal here. But there's a photo of the two on Rosenbaum's Instagram that was taken after the podcast was done. I still think he too is a little taller than 5'11.

lol Tom welling looks over 6'3 with Tom ellis and rest of cast.

In SMALLVILLE season 9 episode 11, he was listed as 6'3 with green eyes and black hair... Click Here
He consistently looked this height i.e. 6'3

Nice face and a towering height. A dream guy for most girls out there.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Aug/17
He'd probably measure a decent 192cm out of bed
Andrea said on 3/Aug/17
Rob, can you add Sam Jones III aka Pete? He had an important and regular role in the first seasons... Plus he took part to a few other tv shows, apparently!
He generally gets listed at 5'8 but, as you say at the top of this page, he probably isn't much over 5'7. To be honest, he can look no more than 5-6 inches shorter than Tom in some scenes but I guess that they used apple boxes for him at times.
Here he looks a good amount shorter than Michael: Click Here
Editor Rob: didn't realise I never actually listed him, but I should.

Dingle said on 12/Jul/17
I believe that tom was 6"3 at one point rob,I think he is the flattest of 6"3s, like he was 190.6cm or there about, he definitely reached it as a younger man if not now!
Randy said on 10/Jul/17
I would say maybe 193 right out of bed then after a long day of shooting maybe 187 at bedtime.
shiva182cms said on 1/Jul/17

It's because he got more into directing than acting.
shiva 181 cms said on 15/Jun/17
Rob,why do you think he isnt getting offers in movies

He's got an ideal height for looking a big prescence in film.

Lol if tom is 6'3 and over then peak john schneider would be nearly 6'4 and david hasselhoff would be close to 6'5 which is impossible. Tom is probably just 190cm in the morning and drop to 189cm range. Remember rob list him 6'2.5 at first before upgrade that could highly be tom before bed height
Keary said on 6/Mar/17
When I lived in Vancouver about 10 years ago I saw Welling outside jogging a few times. I don't know if he lived nearby or if he simply liked the area because it had trails for running. One time when I was getting ready to go running I saw a tall guy with a dark beard walk up next to me and start stretching. Something about him seemed familiar so I took a second look and I instantly recognized that it was Welling.

I'm 5'11" and he towered over me much in the same way as my 6'3" brother towers over me. We were both wearing running shoes with similar sized thick cushy heels so he gained no advantage there. I felt that Welling was at least half an inch taller than my brother. He also had huge feet. I wear a 10.5 shoe and his shoe had to be at least a size 14. The other things I noticed was that he had big hands and a big chest. He's a big all-around guy. In person he looks much bigger than he did on that show Smallville.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 13/Feb/17

I wish I was a 6 footer though! I guess you're right about my legit uncle claiming 6'3" since he's the same mark as Tom Welling in his peak at night.
Johan said on 13/Feb/17

My idea on Imperial is that if you're a 6'2.25" guy for instance you drop the quarter and just claim 6'2"

If you're 6'2.75" then its fair to round up to 6'3".

Metric is far more simple in this respect.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 11/Feb/17
Rob, this is my legit Uncle's height at late night and he regularly gets mistaken for 6'3". Could he just go ahead and claim 6'3"?
berta said on 11/Feb/17
i think he is about 191,5 in the morning and shrink to 190 in the evening
S.J.H said on 5/Feb/17
I remember rob use to list tom welling at 6'2.5 and he could be this mark by lowest no surprise. Not everyone measure themselve at evening and go with it and most people just go with their doctor measure them in the morning session check up and claims it
Yes yes said on 4/Feb/17
Wow! Kryptonians are very tall! Or what do you say Rob? ;)

A strong 6'2.75 for Tom, might be 6'3.

Closest to actor to Superman's real height so far! Clark Kent is listed as 6'3 and 235 pounds on DC Comics database.
shiva181cms said on 1/Feb/17
He would definetely fall a bit below 190cms after a busy day say 12hrs standing on his feet or after a workout in the evening may it be 1-3mm or 3-6mm ,but not below 189cms though as Rob lists late afternoon heights so still in the 190-190.5 range listing 6'3 is still better
berta said on 31/Jan/17
he get my respect for being so honest about his height. many in his shoes would have claimed 191-193.
Nils said on 20/Jan/17
I just rewatched early seasons and since celebheights increased my interest in well celeb heights i looked closely.
He actaully looks taller then John in most scenes, even by an inch in some scenes. He looks 1-2 inches taller then the guy who plays whitney in most scenes.
He easily has 4 inches on rosenbaum and close to 4 inches on glover.
This guys height is a mysteri to me. If he came out and claimed over 6'3 i would believe him. But i don't get why he would claim under his mark so he probably is around 190 cm and something is up with the footwear.
S.J.H said on 15/Jan/17
Counting down 10 years from 2017 now to see if tom welling shrinking below 190cm. Lol

shiva 181 cms said on 15/Sep/16
Actually what I was Implying was Ryan Reynolds came up with 6'1-2 comment but looks like a legit 6'2 guy and Rob gave him 6'2 likewise Tom too came up with about 6'3 Mark but looks like a legit 6'3 but Rob listed him a bit shy of 6'3 anyways he looks a bit above 6'3 than below so he can be listed as 6'3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Sep/16
Welling would definitely be a bit taller than Reynolds.
joe### said on 11/Sep/16

shiva 181 cms said on 9/Jul/16
Rob you can give him 6'3 mark without hesitation hes appeared that mark he might have measured 6'2.75 range and got up with almost 6'3 mark like reynolds you gave him 6'2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jul/16
Strong 190cm barefoot, more like. Pretty much 6ft3 on the nose.

Tom I bet is around 189,5 or a weak 190 cm barefoot, nothing more.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jun/16
'on a good day in his early 20's he may well have been near that'

Rob, are you implying that the guy may have dropped a fraction?
Editor Rob: on a good day when his discs were at their peak and able to rehydrate fully, he may well have reached a tiny bit taller than he could at near 40.
Ice said on 15/Jun/16
ROB would he really measure as high as 193 cm right out of bed ?
Editor Rob: on a good day in his early 20's he may well have been near that, but of course we are guessing. One man might shrink 3/4 inch, another 1.25 inch. The taller you are though, the potential is there for a bit more shrinkage, with a longer spine.
Mark said on 13/May/16
Definitely a solid 6'3" in the morning.

Though he would be edged out by Michael Shannon.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/May/16
Out of bed: 192-193cm
Before bed: 190-191cm

Might be 190.2cm before bed which is ⅛in off 6ft3. All I'll say is that there are a number of guys listed here at 6ft3 that I can't see taller than this guy.
John said on 18/Apr/16
Solid 190 cm. Nothing less.
Johno said on 11/Apr/16

Johan said on 11/Apr/16
Nothing under 190 cm.
S.J.H said on 10/Apr/16
In metric 189.5-190.3cm anywhere this range would be welling height

You're out of your mind.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Mar/16
He's taller than both Just Hartley and Alan Ritchson (both 6ft2 range) so anything below this we can and should rule out. I think even he could above this listing but still not an exact 6ft3, like 6ft2⅞
Rick said on 6/Mar/16
Ok but..
If you compare bautista and see bautista taller than Tom..
Can y help me?
Alex said on 7/Feb/16
In Smallville he was used to wear boots, 2.5-3 cm range, and he looked a solid 190 cm or little more. His barefoot height should be 188-189 cm, nothing less.

Editor Rob: she could look anywhere in 5ft 8-9 range

I ever thought he was 6'4 then i realise how other actors add up an inch of claim. Most 6'4 actors were same height as welling.
Sammy Derrick said on 23/Nov/15
I was a MASSIVE fan of SMALLVILLE, and Tom Welling(Clark Kent) was never towered by ANYBODY.His fellow co-stars said that he always had a big guy vibe...I think he should be up-graded to 6'3(191cm!!!)I have proof why...
WWE Superstar KANE(Aldar)-6'7 towered him..(but not as much as one would a except)
Click Here -In this image Kane appears massive... Click Here - In this behind the scenes image Tom Welling is like Randy Orton(6'4) when standing next to Kane.
Compared to Alan Ritchson (6'2) Click Here They appear almost similar in height, but Tom edges Alan out and he is slouching... Click Here In this image however Tom is clearly bigger and taller..
Compared to Justin Hartley(6'2) Click Here If you look closely his shoulder level it is higher than Justin's...

The only time he was towered in an awkward way was in Cheaper By The Dozen Click Here by Jared Paladecki(6'4), but in an intreview, Tom said that the producers wanted a guy who would tower Tom and still have a teenager's look...
Tom should be a solid 6'3 guy...most people say it,he looks it and he isn't that insecure guy to lie about his height..
What do you think Rob?
Editor Rob: his almost 6ft 3 claim seems like that of a guy who was measured at that.
John said on 12/Nov/15
I think that Welling easily holds this listing and can edge other supposedly 6'3 actors that inflate their height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Nov/15
"Tom Welling's height is 6ft 2⅞in (190.182cm)"

Might sound a little whammy but he can look over 6ft3 more than under but Rob still ain't gonna give him that nice rounded figure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Nov/15
Rob, do you think he could measure 6ft3¾(192cm) out of bed?
Editor Rob: yes, that is within the realms of believability.
Andrea said on 6/Nov/15
Rob, since you retrieved a lot of old comments from the past from a lot of pages, are there any of Tom's page too?
There might be some interesting quotes...
Editor Rob: I only limit comments to about 250
John said on 24/Oct/15
Odd,because I watched every episode of Smallville and Tom clearly edged out legit 6'2 guys. To say he's 6'2 at best isn't very likely as there's a better chance he clears 6'2. John Schneider is listed at 6'3 and he and Tom were very close and at times Tom appeared to have the edge. So 6'2 at best, I doubt it.

Wellings looks like a solid 6'3 to me. I think more often than not and for the most of the day he can hold the upper average of 6'3. Looks like the lead singer from the All American Rejects too haha. I remembered they even performed on the show.

Judd ISR said on 5/Oct/15
I think he would edge actors like a young Sean Connery, Ben Affleck and Ryan Reynolds, he would be as tall as Chris Hemsworth but he would be edged by Jeff Goldblum, John Corbett and Vincent d'Onofrio.

6'3" is a good estimate for him...

To me he looks no less than 5 inches shorter plus the fact Tom is wearing low shoes he looks more 176-177, but i'm not gonna argue a cm :)
Also maybe the presenter isn't standing at his tallest there?

On an Interview on Regis and Kelly,Kelly points out that he looks taller in person than on screen...he says that he is about 6'3
Many of his colleagues and his bios on websites all claim 6'3 plus he doesn't look like the insecure guy who would lie about his height...
Andrea said on 17/Jul/15
Rob, just out of curiosity, do you really think Sam Jones is just 5'7? At times, he doesn't look that short with Tom and the other castmates on the show but there are also pics (outside the set) where he really doesn't look over 5'7! He's a tricky guy, do you think they made him stand on appleboxes or something in some scenes? Here, for example, ok, he's slouching but still i doubt he would be much taller if stood straight: Click Here
Here, something's going on since he looks maybe around 5 inches shorter than Tom: Click Here
[Editor Rob: been a while since I watched those early smallville's, but at times he seemed taller than 5ft 7, I'd put it down to possible small 3-4 inch crate, as he looks 5ft 7 in normal photos mostly.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jul/15
Because he's got good posture, he could easily be mistaken for 6ft3+(Technically he is that but much earlier in the day).
Andrea said on 27/Jun/15
If Tom came out with a very precise claim like "I'm 6'3 and a quarter" instead of "almost 6'3", Rob would have probably have given him that... Just see what happened with Jake Gyllenhaal or Jim Beaver! ;)
[Editor Rob: the Jake story isn't finished, the next chapter will be when he agrees to a measurement!]

Rob, you see what i am talking about? Why there are scenes like this? Tom and Michael walking on the street and they basically keep this perspective for all the time: Click Here
I mean, as you say, Tom is Superman. Shouldn't he appear imposing? There are many scenes like this on Smallville...
Or scenes like this: Click Here Here he's talking to a guy who is in fact way shorter than him but from this shot you wouldn't say that, right? I wonder why they use these tricks a lot on the show. Is that what you mean with "making him taller"?
[Editor Rob: some directors might have just filmed with certain low angles for effect, but I did watch it and from what I recall I don't think overall they made him shorter, although you would find many instances of angles that did reduce heights.]

@pablo, They probably had Jared wear boots in that scene
pablo77bar said on 25/Apr/15
Josh Pence is in the 6ft 2.5-6ft 2.75 range
so YES
Tom Welling is 6ft 3
But I dont know
He looks much smaller than Jared.At least in that famous picture
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Apr/15
Rob, do do you think he'd edge Idris Elba, Dave Morrisey and Liev Schreiber?
[Editor Rob: I think probably Schreiber could turn out to be weakest of those...a guy like Welling might pull off appearing taller than some because I believe he has worked on his posture and carries himself very near his measured height, while Elba doesn't and is more loose in posture at times.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/15
There are plenty of guys on this site listed at 6ft3 that I'm certain Welling would edge out.
John said on 5/Apr/15
I've seen behind the scene footage and Tom almost always edges John out.
Andrea said on 4/Apr/15
Obviously? I could post a lot of pictures where Tom looks taller than him! Of course you can find some scenes where John edges (or at least seems) him out... And no, i don't think they do that much to make him appear taller but it's the opposite! If you really watched Smallville you can see that, in most of the scenes where Tom talks to the other actors/actresses, they use low camera angles which favourite the others and it's basically impossible to tell the real difference! I wonder why...
fish said on 4/Apr/15
cmon guys.. john schneider is obviously a little bit taller than welling in the first 2-3 seasons. it is like rob said, the producers wanna make tom appear more imposing looking as superman
Andrea said on 28/Mar/15
In fact I still doubt John would be taller than Tom! If I had to choose, I'd bet on Tom being taller than John, not the opposite for sure! I'd be very surprised if John was the taller one because, as you said, John wears boots in many scenes too! Maybe John is more 6'2.5 and Tom 6'2.75?
Lorne??? said on 26/Mar/15
I must say, I still can't really see John Shnieder as taller than Tom, generally they look the same, in an episode I watched last night though Tom looked taller, in multiple scenes, and both were wearing boots(at least in the one scene). Even if Tom's boots were a bit thicker(they likely were) that would mak him at worst the same height as John, which is what I personally always though, within a few mm of each other. I can believe Tom's almost 6ft3, so John should be that same height as well, especially since Rob has said he is "near" 6'3 after meeting him in person(as opposed I a solid)
Andrea said on 24/Mar/15
He's clearly taller than 6'2 guys like Alan Ritchson or Justin Hartley! Anything below this listing is quite hard to believe...
John said on 22/Mar/15
Viper among others have purported Tom is 6'1", I personally find that hard to believe. I doubt he would measure anything below 6'2" at his worst. Rob, do you think it's likely Tom could measure below 6'2"?
[Editor Rob: the 6ft 2 listing was back in his modelling days, when a lot of agencies kind of capped guys who cleared 6ft 2 and put them as 6ft 2...the fact he came out with that specific 'almost 6ft 3' is to me a good indication he's been measured a small amount under 6ft 3.]
Rusty 190cm said on 18/Mar/15
Rob, do you think he can be only 1/8 inch shy of the mark like me and just chooses to be modest? Or do you think he measures somewhere between 6'2.5-75"?
[Editor Rob: I'm sure he's been measured somewhere around that 6ft 2.75 range. Most men would just say 6ft 3, but he did come out once with the almost, other time just the 6ft 3.]
John said on 17/Mar/15
I think he can touch 6'3" fresh out of bed which makes him a weak 6'3". With that said he still edges many Hollywood claims such as Ben Affleck for instance.
Bishop said on 15/Mar/15
This is weird because I always saw him as a strong 6'3" guy....
joe 193cm night said on 7/Mar/15
SJH,I know you see this scene I was 12 at the time
John said on 5/Mar/15
So Rob, in your opinion is Tom being truthful about his claim? I feel there's enough evidence to support that he's near 6'3.
[Editor Rob: I think he is quite honest.]
S.J.H said on 23/Feb/15
@joe 192cm says on 7/Feb/15
tom is 6´3 Click Here

Just a reminder this scene Kane was in a thick boots at about 2inch
Josh said on 8/Feb/15
He's going to be in a movie with Benjamin Walker who you have listed at 6'3 on here.
joe 192cm said on 7/Feb/15
tom is 6´3Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Feb/15
He has an easy 2in on Costner in Draft Day (a pretty decent movie BTW). But Costner being a little under 6ft1 today is possible after turning 60
John said on 2/Feb/15
I agree that Tom would edge out quite a few 6'3 claims on this site as actors have a tendency to inflate their height.
S.J.H said on 1/Feb/15
Rob, why don't you leave tom welling at 6'3? Since most actors were more commonly round up a 0.25-0.5" up. I him a good 6'3
[Editor Rob: 90% of men at 6ft 2.5-2.75 range might just have said 6ft 3, but this guy comes out and says he is almost 6ft 3...why wouldn't I list him at almost 6ft 3 then?
John said on 21/Jan/15
Strange, I can't see where Tom's on his tip toes necessarily, his feet are obscured in the pic I'm seeing. Why would a near 6'3 guy need to go up on his tip toes anyway?
[Editor Rob: so more of himself can be seen in the photo.]
Andrea said on 21/Jan/15
Based on what would you say that? To me, he's standing very straight, i mean, look at his legs!!!
[Editor Rob: Tom is on his tip toes in the shot.]
Andrea said on 20/Jan/15
Rob, here's Tom with Ashley Greene (in 4 inches heels, as you can see from the event) and Paul Khoury, that you guessed at "about 6'"...
Click Here
You think that's about 3 inches difference? :)
[Editor Rob: it could be that. He's not exactly standing as tall as he can there.]
Andrea said on 19/Jan/15
Well, i wouldn't rely on modeling agency cause Tom himself was listed at 6'2 flat when he was a model... Josh i think looks 6'3 if Arnie Hammer is really 6'4.5! I am not sure there is more than 1.5 inches between them, sometimes it can look more but Arnie is a guy who raises his eyes in many photos and he has impeccable posture! Of course, there's always a chance Arnie is no more than 6'4 flat, Josh is more 6'2.5 and Tom a bit taller near 6'3...
John said on 19/Jan/15
I looked it up and one of Pence's modeling agency had him listed at 6'2.5 which is consistent with Tom's near 6'3.
Josh said on 18/Jan/15
In that picture with Pence. If that guy is 6'3, Tom is definitely at least that. He actually looks a little taller than Pence.
vtec said on 17/Jan/15
with 6'3 pence

joe 192cm said on 15/Jan/15
on the statement of Justin Hartley Tom should this about 190cm-191cm
John said on 10/Jan/15
I agree Andrea, John looks nearly 4 inches shorter there.
Andrea said on 9/Jan/15
Click Here
How much difference, Rob?
[Editor Rob: in that still John can look barely even 5ft 11.]
Andrea said on 4/Jan/15
What about the photo with John?
Andrea said on 2/Jan/15
Well, even considering some footwear disadvantage, you look taller next to 6'3 guys on this site and she's supposed to be an inch taller than you! And i wouldn't base Tom and Callum comparison on that photo since Callum is closer to the camera and still looks nearly 2 inches shorter! And what about the photo with John Glover? He looks what? 4 inches shorter?
[Editor Rob:
The cameraman is around the left hand side of that group, but not in front of Tom, so I would say their distance to the cameraman was actually very close. Click Here.]
Andrea said on 2/Jan/15
Yeah, sorry! Here's the photo: Click Here
The comparison with John... I was talking about my previous post...
[Editor Rob: I think in the group shot the height of blue and welling look what they claim to me, mack looks 5 inches shorter than cassidy, both in probably 0.4in footwear, the guys with maybe a fraction thicker but not much.]
Andrea said on 1/Jan/15
How much difference you think there is there between John and Tom? Of course, Tom is wearing Timbs in that scene so let's give him 0.5 more in footwear...
And what about this? Btw, Cassidy Freeman doesn't look 5'9 for sure there!!!
[Editor Rob: the link never appeared]
Andrea said on 29/Dec/14
This is a perfect example of what i'm talking about:
Click Here
Low camera angle, Glover closer to the camera...
It's only a scene here, but i could find many ones like that! The question is, why they "reduce" Tom's height this way if he's Superman, Rob?
Of course, there are some scenes where you can see more clearly their height difference. Look at here: Click Here
And i don't think John is much under his listing since he's taller than strong 5'11 range Michael Rosenbaum...
[Editor Rob: just from watching the show I never thought they did much to reduce height differences except when doing the talking-head shots.]
Andrea said on 28/Dec/14
Rampage, the fact he's listed shorter than 6'3 guys doesn't mean he's actually shorter than them! I mean, a listing on this site doesn't change celebrities' real heights! This is just a guess! I am sure that if Tom went out with 6'3, he'd be listed at a full 6'3 on here! This is an example of how celebrities' claims can affect Rob's listings... And Rob, I wouldn't say they make him taller than he is in Smallville because, as i already said, when he has scenes with guys like Michael Rosenbaum or John Glover (who themselves aren't short at all) they use low camera angles which favour them and make them look taller than they are next to Tom! I'm still wondering why... When they don't use these "tricks", you can see that he's no less than his listing!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/14
Rob, are you still convinced that's a hair under 6ft3?

I have a hard time believing guys like Chris Hemsworth and Brendan Fraser would edge him out
[Editor Rob: I believe he is honest in his claim, at one point he measured a little under 6ft 3. With good posture and a boot of course on the show he could look domineering - he's playing Superman, the business is to not make him look small.]
Samir said on 17/Dec/14
I think He's close to 6'3.5 or 1.93m. He's too damn tall, He's even taller than Ashton Kutcher o Justin Hartley.
onthemoney said on 26/Nov/14
he's a tall man. could've claimed 6'3" and we would believe him. instead he said I'm almost 6'3" so 6'2.75" is a good listing.
Andrea said on 17/Nov/14
Well, since you always talk about his posture, he doesn't seem a guy who always try to stand at his tallest as you say, "stretching to the last mm"! If you wanna talk about guys who stand in a military pose most of the time, i think about a Stephen Amell, a Sly, a Henry Cavill or a Vin Diesel! Those guys are guys who would like to be taller for sure... You say having a good posture means a person is very self-confident but i am not so sure... I've seen just a few pics of a guy like Vin Diesel but he certainly doesnt strike me as a "self-confident" guy but more complexed and insecure about his height! Tom, yeah, he generally has a good posture but that's all... I doubt he'd like to be taller, especially after him saying he's "too tall" for his job!
[Editor Rob: diesel seems a confident guy, he just wishes he was taller so accentuates his height ;)

For me, posture gives a a big matter the height of someone, standing tall and straight head is a visual sign of confidence and well being/positivity, while a slouched, scuffling demeanour gives off more negative vibes.
Andrea said on 17/Nov/14
Yeah, he seems a very private person, despite his job... He's not a guy who enjoys appearing on journals and television for sure! Maybe if he'll be in another tv series in the future, he'll do some cons but Rob is right, chances are quite low unless he goes chasing celebrities on the street (which, btw, is not the best way to guess heights...). But i'm curious Rob, if Tom was something like 190-190.2 at his low, would you honestly be able to say "Naa, this guy is not 6'3, he's a bit under it"... 3-5 mms are nothing, IMO, especially if someone is several inches taller than you!
[Editor Rob: I'd expect him to look around a range. If he had impeccable posture he might even fool you into thinking he was in the 6ft 3-3.25 range!]

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Nov/14

Why would that be?
fisch said on 3/Nov/14
My guess would be nearly 192cm (6'3.5") in the morning and 189,5 cm at his very lowest.
So 190cm seems right on the money.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Oct/14
Rob, what are the chances of you meeting Welling?
[Editor Rob: low]

Been rewatching smallville, 1.90cms seems perfect, totally agree with Rob on this one.

Tom Welling new interview 04/02/2014 claiming almost 6ft3 Link here Click Here

Part of interview:
As a model who entered acting, is it an obstable because people see just a pretty face? I think the way I looked helped me with Smallville; being similar to what they thought Clark Kent looked like. 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.
In Smallville, I was new to the industry but I was fortunate enough to be cast as a character who was new to himself. So I as I learned, he learned.
