How tall is Will Smith

Will Smith's Height

6ft 1 ½ (186.7 cm)

American actor best known to TV audiences for his starring turn in sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. In film he has appeared in memorable movies such as Men In Black, Independence Day, Bad Boys and Enemy of the State. In he commented on his height and weight, saying "I'm 6 foot 2, I'm 200 pounds now, but I've been 6 foot 2 since eighth grade when I was 6 foot 2 and 150 pounds so I've always been a little goofy". In 2006 maybe Will decided he deserved another half inch, since his claim changed to: "I'm 6ft 2.5".

@James B: name is James Cardriche. He is listed 7’0 one place then 6’9 in a diff then 6’7.5”. Rob is probably correct about 6’8” or 6’7.5” meaning Will may be closer to 6’1” or 6’1.25. I’d go 6’7.5 or 6’8”. Not sure how reliable the 6’7.5 is unless he admitted to it. 6’9 looks high tho

Since Will is barefoot, I could believe 6ft 8
viper said on 27/Nov/23
I wouldn't say. The younger generation definitely looks shorter, certainly in America
pov said on 26/Nov/23
I’d say he is the minimum requirement to be considered “tall”. I’ve always said tall starts around 186/187cm. 6”1.5 is the new 6”0 in this modern day and age.
Canson said on 12/Sep/23
@Danimal: not sure how far overlisted. Maybe this is near lunch and he’s 6’1.25” at a low. He did look about tjay with Kobe and with Thomas (who’s closer to 5’11.5 or so). Worst case for Will is 6’1” flat but I can see 186 too
Danimal 5'9 1/4" said on 11/Sep/23
One of the several listings (along with Arnold, Tom Cruise, Eddie Hall, etc) that are overlisted.
Here is Will Smith with listed 6'1" (in shoes) Isaiah Thomas in 1990:

6’1 or 6’1.25
Darksol64 said on 4/Sep/23
Can't help but feel this guy is similar to Ray Romano, both in my opinion are a WEAK 6'1 at best at their bedtime low. Both could possibly fall a little short of 6'2 even first thing in the morning.
Lenad 5ft9.75ins said on 2/Sep/23
Claims 6'2 but is really more in the 6'1 range. I wouldn't be surprised if this 6'2 measurement was out of bed. Normal part of day at his peak probably did measure at a weak 187cm.
James B 172cm said on 17/Apr/23
Could pull of 6'1.75 with Evander Holyfield
Canson said on 30/Mar/23
@Viper/ yea that’s a good start
5'7 and a fraction said on 30/Mar/23
Yeah, 6'1 1/4 closer than 6'2.
viper said on 27/Mar/23
He needs a downgrade to 6-1 1/4

Canson said on 19/Feb/23
I see 186 cm tops
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 14/Feb/23
He's definitley slightly shorter than idris elba so no way a legit 6'2 for will. Solid 186cm very believable for will.
Canson said on 26/Jan/23
@Lenad: I’d say 6’1.25-.5 range at his lowest or 6’1-6’1.25
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 9/Jan/23
He's the same height as jim carrey or maybe 1cm taller.
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 5/Jan/23
A. 6'1.5-6'1.75
B. 6'1.25-6'1.5
C. 6'1-6'1.25

Rob which one of the 3 do you think seems most likely. A would surely be his tallest, he's not a legit 6'2.
Emil said on 21/Dec/22

Will standing straight could be an inch taller, but it's arguable Tucker might be more a 6'0" range guy. Smith is certainly 6'1" minimum, while 6'1.5" is best case scenario, but I'd argue 6'1.25" for Will is probably the most likely.

Will was certainly no more than this listing next to 6'2" peak Donald Trump and 6'4.5" James Avery on FPOBA in 1994:

@Hirsh Well you need to because he's no more than 184cm tall. I've saw him in person in Birmingham UK a few years ago and his waxwork recently at Madame Tussaud London. I'm 189.6 cm at my lowest for the day and I had 5cm on Will at least, Sam Jackson is the same height as Will by the way saw his waxwork also.
Hirsh said on 29/Aug/22
I think 6’1.5 is the best listing. I cannot think about him shorter than 186cm
Max Francis said on 17/Jun/22
You'd be correct as I'm sure he's no more that 184 cm if that. He had 5 inches on a 5ft 7 1/2 in Lewis H wearing same F1 outfit.
Johno said on 13/Jun/22
Didn't really look 6-inches taller than a 171cm measured Lewis Hamilton when they met on the circuit with similar footwear.

Pretty far off 6-inches difference.
QM6'1.5"QM said on 28/May/22
The great example of real 6'1.5" guy!!!
Max Francis said on 25/May/22
@5'7 and a bit, I agree you are correct. Not all of the waxwork heights are correct, but nothing is 100%. Some of the celebs heights are gonna incorrect yes that's true. A few years back they had the Rocks waxwork at 6ft 5in at Madame Tussauds in London and he ain't that tall.
ChristianPerkins said on 24/May/22
Very true.
5'7 and a bit said on 24/May/22
@Max In that case, if the celeb was pictured with waxwork and appear the same height, I suppose you could use the waxwork (upon seeing it in person) as good estimation for their height. I'm just saying not ALL celebrity waxworks should be used as entirely good indicators of the actual celebs height overall. The waxwork makers may not always get everything right.
Max Francis said on 23/May/22
@ChristianPerkins, You are correct. I'm just say he's not under 185. 184 would be 6 ft 3/4in too low for Will. 5'7 and a bit, my source is the pictures of many celebs with their own waxworks. Just google:- celebrities with their wax figures and you'll see my point.
Canson said on 23/May/22
@Christian: I doubt Smith dips under 185.5 imho
ChristianPerkins said on 23/May/22
I'm confused. 184-185cm is under 6'1". 6'1" is 185.42
Canson said on 23/May/22
Yea he’s not under 6’1”. He is taller than Isiah Thomas who rob lists 6’0 but is more 5’11.5-6’ range. I saw a guy post a pic of himself and Joe Dumars on FB and the guy was honest and said Dumars was 6’1 range barefoot and they were similar. He was a friend of Joe’s.
5'7 and a bit said on 22/May/22
Also 5'6 3/4 for Tom Cruise is kind of silly.
5'7 and a bit said on 22/May/22
@Danimal, I agree with Canson. 6'1.5 isn't unreasonable as a listing but he does generally look closer 6'1, so 6'1.25 is probably best case. Going under 6'1 is just too low though.

@Max Francis, unless the wax works was based off an actual cast of the celebrity, I fail to see how you would use them as an entirely reliable source for their height overall.
Max Francis said on 22/May/22
@Canson, I agree he's not under 6ft 1in, he's definitely in the 184-185 cm range. In shoes 188 cm is very likely.
viper said on 22/May/22
I use to think he was sub 6-1 but not anymore
Canson said on 22/May/22
@Danimal: I can see 6’1.5 being debatable but he’s definitely not sub 6’1”. He’s 6’2 range in shoes. 6’1.25 is very much possible too
Danimal said on 21/May/22
I've respectfully disagreed with this listing for years. I've always had him under 6'1." He was listed at 5'11" in a magazine I had in the late 80's. It was about his rapping career with DJ Jazzy Jeff. I can see him 6'1" in shoes. He fools a lot of people, as does Tom Cruise, who was never over 5'6 3/4".
Max Francis said on 21/May/22
Just google :- celebrities with their wax figures, and a host of celebs like P Diddy, Ed Sheeran, Mike Tyson and Beyonce come up. You see my point.
ChristianPerkins said on 20/May/22
Where's the evidence?
Max Francis said on 20/May/22
@ChristianPerkins you can't say that as many celebs have been pictured with their waxwork and are the same heights.
Tall Sam said on 19/May/22
Idk about Smith but I saw on a dummy Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury costume from the Avengers I believe, I think it’d still look fitting for a notably tall guy at least near 6’2” despite his starting to lose some height near then.
James B 171.5cm said on 19/May/22
He looks under 6'1.5 with Idris Elba

ChristianPerkins said on 18/May/22
I don't think Will's quite 6'1.5" either, but waxworks don't mean anything. They're not good indicators of the celebs' real heights.
Max Francis said on 18/May/22
He's certainly not the 6ft 2 1/2 in he claims or 6ft 1 1/2in. I'm 6ft 2 3/4in myself and saw his waxwork at Madame Tussauds some years back and I had 2 ins over him and Samuel Jackson. I'd say he's 6ft 1in at the most.
IceCold said on 13/May/22
Not sure about 6'1 1/2.
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 8/May/22
Definitely over 6'1 but by how much is tricky. I think it's a coin toss between 6'1.25 or 6'1.5.

Will Smith is taller than Bradley Cooper by a good inch in about every photo they’ve taken standing next to each other. This is factoring in that Bradley has a clear hair advantage, given how Will’s hair is flat. It’s possible Bradley Cooper is dropping height though from what it appears.

That’s not “hardly edging him out”.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/May/22
I can see a case for 186cm but really he’s looked all over the place.
Out of bed should clear 188cm
5'7 and a bit said on 2/May/22
To the comment below, Bradley Cooper listed 6'0.5 wears thick healed shoes all the time, so of course Smith will "hardly edge out Cooper" with marginally less footwear disadvantage and Cooper appearing 6'1.
That would still leave Smith being slightly over 6'1 barefoot.
Garrett Peduto said on 1/May/22
He’s no taller than 6’1 in my opinion hardly edges out Bradley cooper plus he’s gets towered over by 6’4+ guys
5'7 and a bit said on 29/Apr/22
@Canson In all fairness, I can see 187cm out of bed as he can look close to 6'2 at times. But like you I don't see him being over 186 on average during the the day. 6'1 ½ is most likely earlier.
Warren said on 20/Apr/22
Def 6'1 to 6'1.25 range but looks taller than he really is.

6'1 1/2 for Smith.

The Oscar controversy leveraged Will Smith here at CelebHeights.
It's sad the things that are happening to him.

There's easily 4 inches between Smith an Jordan.I still would put Smith at 6ft1.5 I just think Jordan is taller than 6ft4.75.

Well if goldblum was not over 6'4.25 peak then 6'1.25 is believable in Independance Day.

Can we please dial down the "noise" Tall Sam and stick to height. ;-) I'm just joking haha, what you say is up to you! Aren't there some comparisons where he looks nearer 6 ft 1? I must admit if I didn't know this listing I could have believed 6 ft 2 at times. Goldblum did look about 3 inches taller though I think, been a while since I saw Independence Day
James G. said on 31/Mar/22
Must be 187cm. Pulls off the tall look most of the time.
Tall Sam said on 31/Mar/22
@Miss Sandy Cowell, one should not be permitted to strike a comedian even if they make a joke that offended you (or more so your spouse it seemed in this case), followed by screaming profanities, all rather poor form in their settings, Most people should know that resorting to violent action (even mild as here) is not the right reaction unless you or your loved ones are being physically threatened and you have no recourse. it was a rather embarrassing to watch unedited and seemed like a severe overreaction. Apparently the Academy is considering suspension or expulsion of Smith.

@Ian yeah when I was 14 I took an haymaker directly to my unprotected face from a 220 pound man and it felt like getting hit with a pillow. Humans don’t punch that hard really
JohnSmithsonian said on 31/Mar/22
@Ian C. Evolutionarily speaking, we probably evolved to take punches because it's one of the most natural instincts humans have when fighting each other. The people with strong skulls survived whereas the people with weaker ones did not, and took their genes with them.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Mar/22
From what I heard, Will was provoked. I still like him as much as ever I did!

James B 171.5cm said on 30/Mar/22
I got punched very hard in the face in school by an older pupil in 2004. What happened was he tripped me up and i retaliated by kicking him. He punched me very hard in the nose a few times to the point where my nose is very bent in shape still to this day.
Ian C. said on 30/Mar/22
Well, IceCold, speculating on the nature of God here on Celebrity Heights might overflow even Rob's bounds on what is or is not an allowed topic of discussion. You can discuss how tall God is, but that's about it, I think. (Five foot ten in the morning actually, but because God's days are ten thousand Earth year's long, He tends to be about five inches shorter at the end of the day.)
IceCold said on 30/Mar/22
@Ian C. God must be a fighter, too?
Ian C. said on 30/Mar/22
An exacerbating factor in the Smith-Rock assault was that Smith is clearly much larger and stronger than Rock. Howard Stern explained this well, by pointing out that, if Jason Momoa had told the offending joke, Smith would have been much less likely to hit him. Just so.

I used to be six foot-four, so when men hit me you couldn't really fault them for being bullies. An interesting fact that many people might not know is that getting punched in the face, while unpleasant, doesn't really hurt. You'd be surprised how tough the front of your head is. It's as if God anticipated that people would punch each other now and then, and designed your face for that eventuality.

Looked around 187cm at the Oscar’s. Clearly taller than Samuel Jackson and Travolta on stage. Looked noticeably taller than Cooper once again, even with the large footwear Cooper usually wears.

Will seems to wear really low sneakers a lot of time which doesn’t help his listing. Especially when photographed next to those wearing boots and big heeled shoes.

Looked 6’1 range at the Oscars.. I’ll leave it at that.
Ian C. said on 28/Mar/22
So, Smith smacked Chris Rock for a lame joke at the Oscars.

Three and a half inches taller than Chris Rock, so that didn't look well. Smith a wee bit oversenstive, I'd say, not to mention so removed from normal social protocols that he couldn't figure out how badly hitting Rock would look to most people.

On the other hand, Rock has made his living for years being aggressively obnoxious at other people's expense, so I was actually kind of pleased that Smith smacked him. I myself have been punched in the face four times (by men) since I turned twenty, and I could be plausibly said to have deserved at least three of the retaliatory smacks. So, I understand how those little things can happen.
Dejavu said on 27/Mar/22
He looks at least 6’1 next to 5’11 Jon Bernthal. In good posture, he is taller than 6’1. Maybe 186 or 187cm.

I think generally during the day, Will would measure scraping 187cm. I think him and Jim Carrey are the same height if not Will a hair taller.

And i forgot about Will's leaning there, look like 1/4 to Michael Jackson's 45-degree tilt. but on the other pic on the simillar set, it doesn't help WIll at all, so i would estimate him at 186 cm at most
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 6/Feb/22
@Editor Rob ah i din't realised that, Will's sneakers could be just 1/2-3/4 inch and Beckham's shoes look even thicker than Cruise's shoes, well Cruise is on a normal shoes, which is pretty rare

Only way 6ft2 is possible for Will was if James Avery was the full 6ft5 which looking back now seemed less likely

a weak 186 is what will is from what i,ve seen .he never gave me a 6ft2 impression like what strong 6ft1 guys do but he does look around 6ft1 or maybe a hair above it probably would edge cristiano by a 1/4 if they were to meet .185.5-186 before bed and 187.5-188 out of bed.also here he is next to phelps who is canson met and thought that he was around 189 give or take will looks 3-4cm shorter there making him in the 185-186 range again.

Its odd. We all assumed he was taller than Holyfield in the 90s, who we estimated at 6'1 with Rob.

Then he clearly looked shorter than a 6'1.5 Djokovic by 0.5-0.75-inches, making him appear sub-6'1.

But again, he had a few inches on Cavil when they met.

Looking at the comparisons again, he wasn't taller than Holyfield in the 90s, he had just a higher eyeline.

Perhaps, some of these sub-6'1 estimates have reason.

6'0.75, possibly 6'1.

I believed Will Smith was 6'2" growing up in the 90s. Looking back he's not 6'2". Close to 6'. Towers Jada and the kids.

No more than 6'0.5

@Viper: he’s taller than Isiah but I agree 6’1 flat. Zeek is a weak 6’. 5’11.5 is possible for him

In some films over last 20 years he's looked north of 200, but was well under that mark back in Fresh Prince era.

@Eric W Tam: 6’2.5 was bad enough. He probably knows where “reason” is
Eric W Tam said on 29/Nov/20
Smith is a solid 6'2 I think. Eh maybe 6'1.5. Huh,surprised Smith doesn't just bump him up t o 6'3. While he's more than tall enough it must still be pretty disheartening at first to realize he stopped growing in the eighth grade. I mean Unless I was already 6'4, I would want at least two more inches (no more than three) after the eighth grade xd. I myself had the most significant spurt after eighth grade and after junior year.
Canson said on 23/Nov/20

Trump could have been slightly off his peak height by early 90s. Yet he does still edge Smith
Canson said on 23/Nov/20
Slim and Vincent have a good estimate. That may explain why James Avery looked 3” taller and why he was always described as 6’4 by Ribeiro and Smith instead of his listed 6’5”. Ironically as Tall in the Saddle also pointed out, he did edge Holyfield or st least appeared to. As for Smith with Trump, maybe 0.5-1”?
CDS said on 22/Nov/20
Was just watching the recent, "fresh Prince of bel air" reunion on HBO max. I highly recommend! But looking at those old videos of Will next to the late 6'4" James Avery, to me will is looking no more than 6'1" (6'2" in shoes?). But the interesting thing that says to me, is it reconfirms some of my other height guesses for other actors, 5'10" (5'11" in shoes) for Jason Bateman, in the film "Hancock," 5'11" for Edward Norton (6' in shoes) per the film they did together, etc...

Kale - 186.5 said on 20/Oct/20
I think Smith in his prime was a comfortable 187.

He was ever so slightly taller than 186.1 listed Evander Holyfield, and never looked 188-189 next to James Avery, who Rob has listed at 194.9.

Thomas asd said on 13/Sep/20
It's refreshing to hear that he stopped growing in 8th grade. So many people lie and say they're growing in their 20s to further feed the narrative that men typically grow that late. It happens but it's much more common to stop growing during high school. I know many tall and exceptionally tall guys that stopped growing during the summer after 8th grade or shortly after. I stopped before grade 9 was over.

Thomas was max 6’0” by his own admission when he said “everyone gets that inch”. The NBA listed him 6’1” when he played. Zeek was not as tall as Smith

Theodore Kalaitzoglou said on 13/Jun/20
Do you want me to prove to you that Will Smith is just 6ft tall or a bit less? Maybe 5ft 11 and 1/2. Go to youtube and see the video from the "fresh prince of bel air" where he plays 1 on 1 against Isiah Thomas. Just type "Will Smith and Isiah Thomas" and you'll see the video. At the end of the video you'll see Smith and Thomas walking next to each other and Isiah is at least 1 inch taller. Isiah is listed 6ft 1. You can even google "Will smith and Isiah Thomas" and look at the photos.
Editor Rob
Remember you have the opposite of that clip, the one with Holyfield in which it's hard to imagine he was only 6ft.
Angus said on 22/May/20
he cant be over 6 ft if jamie foxx and eddie murphy are both 5 ft 9 there is just around 2 inch diff between will jamie foxx and eddie murphy

@friisbert: That is not true at all- boxer’s heights are exaggerated a lot.

Also even weight isn’t really accurate because most boxers dehydrate and starve themselves before their weigh in and put on 10-15 pounds or more immediately after.

Also in Ali Smith was towering over the 6’3” Bentt so I’m not really sure if the heights in that movie at all.

Friisbert said on 8/Mar/20
It is usually a good indicator if celebs stand next to an athlete. James Toney played Frazier and Smith played Ali in the Ali movie. Boxer's height and weight are very accurate compared to other sports due to weight limits and the overall nature of the sport.
Toney is 5'9 so Will is nowhere near 6ft 1.46in if you watch the movie. Maybe 6'0 if you are generous.

Interesting here. Isaiah Thomas was on Fresh Prince and everyone thought he was taller than Will. Isaiah admitted here that he wasn’t as tall as he was listed. He alluded to being 6’ but he really was more like 5’11.5ish barefoot according to other ballers and how he looked next to them. So obviously Will Smith is taller than him

He is above 6’1. He is arguably 186 or 187. He can look the same height as Clive Owen and a tad shorter than Joel Kinnaman.

Yes of course, he always been 6'1.5!

@184guy; to be fair though the difference between 6’1 and 6’1.25 isn’t gonna be seen. But They did look the same on FPOBA.

6'1 looks really unrealistic Rob , considering you met Evander and Will looked no shorter than him

Rob I think 6ft1.25 would be perfect
Nearly 180cm guy said on 17/Nov/19
I looked back at Will recently and he still looks at least 186 cm tall. In his latest photos next to Clive, Owen Will may look a bit shorter than him, but Owen had more hair and slightly thicker shoes: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
However, later when their footwear was similar they looked similar in height, besides Will recently met Benedict Wong and looked good 3 inches taller than him: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Wong is the person you met in person. Will is now 51, but I doubt he could lose any noticeable height now. I can understand the 6'1.25" estimates for him but the 6'1.5" list doesn't bother me. Rob, I think your estimated for him is still good.🤗😁
Editor Rob
6ft 1 up to 1.5 I think has always been the range I feel is arguable, I have stuck with the chance of him measuring near 1.5...I don't believe his 6ft 2.5 is a serious 'barefoot' claim, but he could have got that in some footwear.
Yang (5 footer 8, 173) said on 24/Oct/19
@Chris Junior, Agreed. He never looks as tall as 6ft 2 IMO. He is more like 185 range guy than 186 and 187 guy.... Either weak 6ft 1 or solid 6ft 1 is best guess for him. You are right......
Adolfo Rodriguez said on 21/Oct/19

@Canson Holyfield could be a guy holding a strong 185.5cm to give that 186cm impression to Rob.

@Yang @Canson He really wasn't over 6'1. I would rule out 185.5cm a max low for him and min a flat 185cm.
Smith looking at his best 185.5-186cm in Independence Day with 6'4 1/4 peak low Jeff Goldblum who always get estimate as 6'4 1/2-3/4 peak which he isn't. Smith could have lost a fraction or nothing yet, could be always a 6'1 guy. James Avery 6'4 1/2 peak also making Smith look like a 6'1 guy.

Will Smith is legit 6ft 1 African American actor!! Yes, I've met him in a restaurant while I enjoyed my lunch with group of my male friends... but I was kinda surprised and yet very nervous at the same time when I noticed he was sitting next to our table for lunch.. cause Will Smith was enjoying his lunch with his friends and fam.. I know it's kinda rude to interrupt celebrity while enjoying his lunch time with fam and friends... when I picked up my foods on plates in a buffet restaurant, he was standing next to me picking up his own foods. Plus, I was so surprised and then asked him are you Will Smith from I Am Legend Movie and he said yes with a smiley and friendly faces... and then we had really amazing conversations and super surprised and excited that he even insisted on taking selfie with me and my friends... yes, he was with his bodyguard at that time, but his bodyguard was nice enough to let him have conversation and taking selfie with us... didn't even escort us out for approaching him.... cool and humble dude with big heart... I remember I was standing little below his eye level while my 5ft 11 friend was standing his forehead level... yes, his minimum height is 6ft 1 at least based on when I met him in a person.... even my friend thinks that he is 6ft 1 range African American actor at least...
PS. One of coolest and my favorite celebs I've met in a person so far.... not only Tom Felton and Zac Efron.

Questioner said on 21/Aug/19
@canson I didnt watch the fresh prince but from the pics I see of them trump is no more than half an inch taller now lets just give trump the benefit and say he had a footwear disadvanatge that still puts him at 3/4 of an inch max so if smith is under this listing espeically at peak trump was never a legit 6'2" and maybe just 6'1.75" Click Here

@K.A.188: I don’t put a peak Trump under about 6’1.75 perhaps even a full 6’2” peak. Now he may have lost a fraction when he made that appearance but it was still clear he edged Will Smith. I have Smith as a solid 6’1” not falling below it at a low. Also was around 3” shorter than Goldblum
K.A 188 said on 4/Jun/19
Strong 6ft1 he has always looked. ..
But back in the 90's Trump was noticeably 2-3 cm taller when he was a guess in an episode of fresh Bel Air Prince, so 6ft2 barefoot is Not possibile for Will.

Lol 6’5”? Will has always been 6’1” range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/19
The full 6ft2 is a hard sell although occasionally he has managed to pulled it off. But then guys like Freeman, Poitier, Sam Jackson, Whitaker and even Muhammad Ali edged him out... I suppose his chances of measuring closer to (i.e. 6ft1¾) are better if for argument sake they were all a little over 6ft2. These are photos from 20 years back
Steve Smith said on 6/Apr/19

Rob, how can Jaden Smith can be only 170 with his father being almost 187? 17cm difference is too big and usually the new generations are taller.
Editor Rob
His Mother is 5ft. Genes from both parents could mean he ended up pretty much as expected.
