Hmm I could believe 5'4.5" for him in his day actually.

5'4 seems accurate, short in stature, but he always had a dominant role, brilliant actor! R.I.P.

Agreed, RIP Bob. Loved him in The Long Good Friday in particular.

I was a big Bob fan. Hoskins never in any of his movies pretended to be tall. In The Long Good Friday, his character Harold Shand is meant to be shortest man in the movie, and a subtle comedic effect is produced in the way he dominates everybody else in the movie. The in-your-face confrontation with the tall smug Mafia guy in the second last scene wouldn't be nearly as compelling if Hoskins had not been so short.

Had no idea he was a shorter fellow. Carried his height very well.

So sad to hear of his passing. He was excellent in many films. Hoskins was basically a Cockney Edward G. Robinson, although a short guy, he was a badass.

Great actor, RIP. Had no idea he was this little, never came across that way when he was playing cockney gangsters.

Rob, a peak height needs to be added. 5'4 nowadays, maybe, but he looked 5'5-5'6 range in his heyday for sure.
