Just watching minority report and he isn't the same height as Cruise, the fight scenes on the swinging platform, when they cut to side views he is noticeably taller and not with any footwear advantage. There's a lot of creative camera work to present same height but a couple of times when they properly match up the top of Cruise's head is around eyebrow height

He's not under 5 ft 9, but to me he has the frame of a typical strong 5'9 guy. I doubt his low is as high as 5'10.
Josh jeffords said on 11/Oct/16
Not even with hair and lifts is he 5 10.
He was the same as cruise in minority.
Is often towered by leading ladies not in heels.
He is an excellent actor and good looking just a small man.
Maybe 5 8.5 max average guys don't looks short.
Height catcher said on 6/Oct/16
I agree but 5'9 flat wont be a shock considering he wears boots and lifts for some roles líke in total recall and true detective
Vibram said on 5/Oct/16
I have Colin at 176cm / 5ft9 1/4. Thats what he looked in Minority Report aged 25 when he was face to face with 170cm Tom Cruise, and again against 181cm Bruce Willis Click Here

LookS 5'9 next to clooney in a pic I saw, rob how can I post the link of the pic? Thanks
Height catcher said on 15/Aug/16
Colin is 5'9, I dont see him as a full 5'10 , he lives on boots, and in true detective looked 5'10.05 but with the boots
GC said on 12/Aug/16
Rob, how do you explain that several years ago IMDB listed him as 5.8" Saw by this very same eyes. Couple of years laters I saw it and the information was changed! How do you explain that! I think you should re-evaluate him!
Editor Rob:

Celebheights = one person who decides.

Imdb = anybody who contributes trivia and content editors who read data and approve/dismiss changes to the trivia.

Imdb has changed thousands of entries because of celebheights. There are several visitors to this site who update imdb after information I post here, although even I am known to help them out on occasion :)

Just this moment I got the 2 year 5ft 9 listing of Jennifer Lawrence back to 5ft 7.5...of course now fans will submit attempts to get her back to 5ft 9...
Height catcher said on 25/May/16
NeedS a downgrade, 2 incesante taller tan degeneres in boots, he is 5'9 at best, 5'10 is too much for him, rob do you think he could be 5'9 tops?
Jedi Master 5'11 said on 20/May/16
Next to 6'2'' Adam Driver he looks either way taller or Adam Driver is way shorter
Height catcher said on 28/Apr/16
5'8 is too low for him I think , he always looks 5'9 to me, in the movie the lobster, he is barefoot and doesnt look 5' 10 at all, 5' 9 guy
Charlie said on 26/Apr/16
no way hes 5 foot 9. 5 foot 8 is better fitting for him.
Height catcher said on 26/Apr/16
Colin is 5'9, 5'10 barefoot for him is too high, he is 5'9 and looks 5'10 to 5'11 in his boots he always weard
Ramtin said on 5/Mar/16
5 11 fit him
Johno said on 25/Feb/16
But then again, he may not even reach 5'9.

I think Farrell is 5"10. Any discounting him his just pure vitriol (which I've never understood because he's a great actor and a very down to Earth person). Amongst co-stars like Al Pacino, Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Cillian Murphy, Jared Leto, Ewan McGregor, Jamie Foxx, Sam Rockwell and Ben Wishaw he is undoubtedly taller. I challenge anyone to find a more accurate 5"10.
5'11" cat said on 1/Oct/15
5'10" in shoes or boots for him,. decent height since he works out he looks muscular/lean which might give him some height in movies.
Nick said on 22/Aug/15
In my opinion he's 5ft 9.75in (177 cm).
burby said on 15/Aug/15
Like Woody Harrelson, he's 5 feet 9.

@Arch Stanton

True 5'10 isnt big but usually a guy who is over 178cm doesnt look short like Colin sometimes does.
true velcoro said on 28/Jul/15
a friend of mind told she met farrell in las vegas, she is 5-11 and told me farrel was liek 2 or 3 inches shorter than her, she was not wearing heals, he must a be a strong 5-9
Axaros 177 cm night said on 5/Jul/15
In True Detective he wears elevator shoes
Shawn said on 29/Jun/15
He's wearing what look like cowboy boots on this season of True Detective, and still looks a good 7 inches shorter than Vince Vaughn. I'm guessing Colin is more in the strong 5'9" category, just don't see him hitting a full 5'10" when being measured.
Gregory Barbosa said on 29/Jun/15
Same height as me, 174cm. I met him at a charity event in Geneva. He wears lift. So do I. I quipped as to who wears the biggest lifts, he, me or my lady friend, he gave a wry half smile and walked away.
MaskDeMasque said on 20/Jun/15
no smaller than 5'9.5. could be anywhere in the 5'9.5-5'10 range.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Jun/15
5 ft 10 isn't big though is it? I have Colin at 177cm.
184.3cm (Night) said on 12/Jun/15

You have seen him? Thats around what i think he would measure, he never strikes me as a big 5'10.
dmeyer said on 11/Jun/15
In person can look 5'9.75
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jun/15
I wouldn't rule out 5ft9 but 5ft9 flat or lower is out of the question.
Around 5ft10 is about right for Farrell.
jake said on 8/Jun/15
5'9" absolute tops, and 5'8.5" wouldn't be shocking at all.

Weak 5'10 same as Ewan 5'9.5"-5'9.75" range. Not a bad claim though most guys his height try for 5'11.

I guess Rob's right. He looks 1-2cm or at times the exact same height as Ewan Mcgregor who's 177cm. Colin seems like a very honest and genuine dude in general when I've watched interviews so I wouldn't think he lied about his height. At most, rounding up like most people do anyway. 177-178cm for Colin.
Judd said on 29/Dec/14
I think he's for sure in the 5'10" range...i doubt he's shorter than 5'9.5-9.75"...
Tessa said on 22/Dec/14
Never mind the damned boots. They are most often flat- heeled and add no more height than a regular shoe. Come on fellas, get over it, he's gorgeous.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/14
Rob who do you think is taller Farrell or Matt Damon?
Sam said on 8/Dec/14
I thought he looked more 1-1.5 than a full 2 inches over Sam Rockwell. Despite their height loss, it looked like Tom Waits and definitely Christopher Walken were still taller than him as well. In general, though, I think he looks pretty close to the 5'10" mark. He should stick to Martin McDonaugh movies or comedies like Horrible Bosses, I find him kind of annoying in other films at times.
Mike Brazil 1.82 said on 2/Dec/14
1.78m with shoes 4cm of course. I think 1,74m barefoot. in horrible Bosses looks very small
Tessa said on 20/Nov/14
OK guys, he's Irish and they wear boots like we wear sneakers here. He's Hes clearly 5'10" or better, and like most males, most of his length is in his legs. When someone says he's 5 11" he corrects them and says 5'10". He's an honest guy. But what does exact height matter...he's freakin GORGEOUS!

Looks consistently an inch taller next to 5'9" Jamie Foxx. Probably closer to 5'10" than 5'9".
cole said on 27/May/14
5'10 is a decent enough claim, but he looks like a 5'9.5 guy a lot - rounding up to his morning height of around 5'10 isn't bad compared to a lot of other hollywood claims - but never the less he should be listed 5'9.5. 6'0.5 Chris Pine has a good 3 inches on him: Click Here
Heylo said on 16/May/14
What does it take to get you downgrade someone? Colin Farrell is absolutely not 178cm. If he was he would look much taller on the big events which he never does. The photos with Jamie Foxx (listed as 5'9, he is probably 174 since Foxx himself said "i'm like 5'9" which means that he rounded up. I'm not sure of Farrells height but he is definitely under 178cm.
RisingForce said on 14/Apr/14
He really does look around his claim, or at worst, he's a half inch under and rounding up. Looks completely average and despite the big heeled boots he's sometimes worn and the tip-toeing photos, I don't think he's a lift guy.
Balrog said on 26/Mar/14
5'9.5" . A typical average guy who wears boots a lot
Kurtz Pull said on 21/Mar/14
Watching Total Recall right now on HBO. His upper body looks very short compare to his legs. In the anti-gravity scene where he escapes the bot-cops, there is a clear view of his footwear. Memory lapsed Hauser was standing tall on 2.5 inches hills. Who knows what he was wearing on the inside. And despite of that, listed 5'10.5" Bryan Cranston appeared a good 2 inches taller than him.
Collin has quick shutter fiery, intense eyes and a small feminine nose topped by oft-tormented brows but he doesn't even reach average height in reality. My guess is 5'8.25 for the dude. He also looked visibly shorter than 5'9" listed Jamie Fox in Miami Vice.
Heylo said on 17/Mar/14
I Also think he looks more 5'9 than 5'10. He can keep up with the 5'11 actors because he often uses these massive boots which will give him twice as much height. That's why he looks 5'11 with boots next to a legit 5'11 guy with dressing shoes (6ft).

A hair over 5'9 for Colin, Rockwell a hair under 5'8 when I saw them in person.
divincodino92 said on 11/Feb/14
could be 173 Rob?
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't bet on it]
Shawn said on 9/Feb/14
Think 5'9" range, not quite a full 5'10".

Richkid, as far as him "losing his looks", he's going to be 38 this year. While 38 isn't old, you can't expect him to still look like he's 25 anymore. Looks good for his age.
176,2Tunman said on 7/Feb/14
A hair taller than Ewan McGregor who is probably somewhere between 5'9 and 5'9.5 I would give Farrell 5'9.5-10.
lelman said on 22/Jan/14
@Rich with Sam Rockwell he looks 5'10" to me, there are a few you could cherry pick to make him look 5'8" or 5'9", but that's just normal. People fluctuate heights in photographs.

I can't see a picture of him with Justin Long on that link. He still looks 5'10" in most of those pics.

They probably wanted to make TC look taller in Minority Report, for all you know he was stood on a box in that photo. Not really good evidence.

As for the tip toe picture, again doesn't prove anything except he's insecure, which many 5'10" guys are.

He's 5'9.5"-5'10".
richkid123 said on 9/Jan/14
I just saw Farrell at A Starbucks in Hollywood. He looked pretty average height. 5'10"ish. He is losing his looks btw.
Rich Hall said on 8/Jan/14
Ok, there's too many pics floating on the web showing he's 5'9" max:
Here next to Sam Rockwell: Click Here
compare with Justin Long Click Here
opposite Tom Cruise: Click Here
practicing Ballet: Click Here

Unlike a buffed up Brad Pitt in Troy, he looked pint size pit bull short in Alexander. 5'9" max but most likely 5'8.5 imo
MD said on 30/Dec/13
Definitely more in the 5'9" range than the 5'10" range.
MetalKid said on 28/Dec/13
Always looked in the 5'9" range to me. I hated the Total Recall remake, by the way.
elblanco said on 24/Dec/13
On Imaginarium of doctor Parnassus he stands next to Lily Cole - supposedly, a 180cm/6 feet girl - and looks much smaller. Maybe she's wearing high heels, but it definitely looks at least 3 inches/5 cm smaller
johnmcc said on 17/Dec/13
Looked slightly taller than an inch or so maybe. Looked really small next to the other guests. I guessed 5'9 flat.

How much height they add in your opinion?They look a little thicker than normal dress shoes
Also how those shoes are called?Any brand name?Thanks!
[Editor Rob: not sure on brand or anything, but they should give near to 1.6 inch]
Greg said on 1/Dec/13
Just watching him on Graham Norton now. He appears slightly taller than Norton. Would have thought 5'9" based on that.
Ted said on 26/Nov/13
Looks 5-9 in every film of him I've seen, and 5-8 would not be a shock.

@RisingForce: McGregor's dropping posture in that pic with Farrell, and Farrell stands sideways. It's difficult to tell because of the hair, but still at the most I'd say they are about the same height, 176-177 cm range.

He looks a strong 5'9 or so with Chris Pine and Edward Norton for example, and the same with most other celebs that I have seen him with, when not wearing his boots.

Rob I think you should at least lower him to 5'9.75.
john b said on 24/Sep/13
Just watching Hearts War to night which stars Bruce Willis and Mr Farrell, Collin is a good 2 inches shorter then Bruce or a little bit more, if I remember Bruce is listed as 5'11'' so Collin really most be 5, 9 tops...
RisingForce said on 21/Sep/13
The difference between Colin and Ewan McGregor(listed 5'9.5" here) is about the same as the difference between Jamie Foxx who claims 5'9". Click Here

Colin definitely looks his claim if Ewan's listing is accurate. Though it does make me wonder again if Jamie Foxx is actually a fraction over 5'9". In fact, Jamie might have measured up slightly better next to Colin than Ewan does when Colin wasn't wearing boots.
Emily said on 15/Sep/13
From pics with Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale in Berlin, he is about 1" taller than both of them while these ladies wear 3" or more heels. If he is less than 5'8", Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale are less than 5'5". So, 5'9" seems reasonable.

What is it about this guy that makes him look taller than 5'10? I see other actors in this height vicinity like Rockmond Dunbar who look significantly shorter on pictures.
Mikels said on 5/Sep/13
Shawn said on 4/Sep/13
I'd give him 5'9". A good example of a legitimate 5'10" actor is Peter Facinelli, who you can find on the site pictured with Rob. Farrell never looks quite as tall as Facinelli does to me.
Goose said on 20/Aug/13
Why do so many posters ascertain a height by comparing it to another actors heigh which is an extremely poor way of estimating height. How do you know the actor your comparing him to is the correct height either as most listed celeb heights are way off? The most accurate celeb estimates on this board are based on first-hand posters who have been near to and or next to the celebrity in question as I've seen those celebrities myself and can testify to their accuracy.
romanspqr said on 18/Aug/13
I really think he's no more than 5'9. I can see 5'8-ish too. He's very lean and can look taller but even when he wears his boots with massive heels he never looks more than 5'11. Can someone explain, real quick, how to post pics? Thanks.
avi said on 22/Jul/13
yeah looks his claim maybe .25 less but this is accurate.
cole said on 13/Jul/13
Rob, didn't you use to have him at 5'9.75? I think he looks more 5'9.5 range.
[Editor Rob: close or 5ft 10 I think is fair for him]

I saw him last year, i was standing near him. I'm 1.75,he was just 1 inch taller than me. I think 176cm max.

He's 5'9.5 at best, doesn't have a 5'10+ stature.
mistwalker said on 15/Jun/13
I think he's legit 5'9.5 without shoes and with regular shoes he may be 5'10.
dmeyer. said on 13/Jun/13
all of those who claim they've seen him 5'6" with shoes on are liars mayube without shoes in the pool he is 5'7 but he likes to wear boots like J.Depp and his hair touches the cloud so fully clothes he is 5'9 no questions asked

This looks pretty accurate if Gabriel Macht is 6'0. This guy looked around 2 inches shorter than Macht in the Recruit, so 5'10 is probably his maximum of course we don't always know film angles and footwear..
Arch Stanton said on 21/May/13
I swear he always looked 5 ft 6 tops next to Sally in Coronation Street!

I agree. I also saw total recall and thought he looked 177cm.

I was at a sushi bar that ferrell. Was dining at. He sat about five feet away from. He is only about 5'7" at most. Also he has a very small frame and build. I was surprised. I'm only 5'2".
Linebacker28 said on 20/Apr/13
Saw Total Recall the other night. He looked 5'9.5" solid throughout the film, so the 5'10" claim seems pretty genuine. Not a bloated estimate most celebs give anyway.
Balrog said on 18/Feb/13
I remember him looking solid 3 cm taller than Renner in SWAT. That would put him at 5'9.5''. Still around 5'10''.

I went to the database 3 years ago and the page said he is 5'8 then I went to the page in 2010 and I was surprised!!! They changed it to 5'10.. Make your own conclusions. Why his own agency would say 5'8 and then change to 5'10. It seems obvious for me.

5'7??! Come on, he's at least 5'9
B said on 3/Nov/12
5'9 or so in Seven Psychopaths. Sam Rockwell is around 5'8 and Farrell usually had two inches on him, but Farrell wore cowboy boots throughout the film which gave him a noticeable advantage most likely, so 5'9 or even slightly under is probably right.
accurate said on 3/Nov/12
I was right behind him at LAX in the security line. No shoes for either of us.
Colin is no more than 5'7" in bare feet.

ahahaha:) 178cm?! MAYBE with his lifts and his hair up:) if you think this guy taller then 173cm barefoot then look at the sky for pink elephants:)
RisingForce said on 6/Oct/12
I'm convinced Colin and Jamie Foxx are virtually the same height. I don't think Jamie is 5'10", but he can look it, so lifts are possible. I'd go with 5'9.5" midday/evening for Colin, and perhaps 5'9.5" for Jamie, though I'll give him 176 cm like Rob mentioned. But legit 5'10" is certainly possible for Colin. He can look pretty tall, then again, he wears boots a lot and a few times wore giant heels.
RisingForce said on 24/Sep/12
I don't have any problem with you at all, Shredder. Sorry if you interpreted it that way. For what it's worth, you're one of the best posters here, imo.
RisingForce said on 22/Sep/12
Shredder, don't forget that Glenn went by morning height. Rob has said he lists celebrities at their height around lunchtime, so a 5'10" listing would make Colin about 5'10.5". And while Glenn's estimate was 5'11", he did say 5'10" was possible, he just guessed taller. So as usual, the stuff with Glenn is exaggerated, but that's all I'll say on that subject since I don't want things to get sidetracked.
RisingForce said on 22/Sep/12
Rob, in this premiere video and full body shot pics when Colin and Jamie Foxx were both in dress shoes, they really look the same height. So if you were to make a change, would it be upgrading Foxx to 5'9.5", downgrading Colin to 5'9.5" or putting them both at that height?

Shorty said on 3/Sep/12
I have been face to face with him, I'm 5'2" and he was only a very few inches taller. The only way he's 5' 10 is with 6" lifts. Or maybe small stilts.

His body proportions reminds me of Stallones, I think Farrels height is between 5'8.5" and 5'9.5"

i stood right next to him outside the Marquee club in NYC years ago and he was NOT taller than me and I'm 5'8". Honestly he is about 5'6". And there is nothing to be ashamed about being that height. I mean the guy has a gorgeous face.

BigT said on 30/Jul/12
5´10" in shoes. 176 cm is closer.
MaskDeMasque said on 29/Jul/12
he doesn't have the proportions of a 5'10 guy. 176-177 i think.
John said on 28/Jul/12
He was on Leno last night...when he walked out, he was about a half inch shorter than 5'11 Leno, but he was also wearing cowboy boots with lifts. Halfway through the interview he referred to himself as "5 foot 10 and 165 pounds." The guy below me pointed out the same interview, but I'd say the boots were making him about 5'10.5 against Leno, so he's probably if not 5'10 then very strong 5'9...
indian fact machine said on 27/Jul/12
replied to jay leno in tonight show last night that he was 5 ft 10 but was wearing some massive boots and looked more of a 5ft9er rather than 5 ft10er..

I stood next to this little guy in a coffee house in Atwater village. I'm 6' and he is way shorter than me even in his cowboy boots and jewelry. He's no more than 5'6". I might add that he couldn't stop checking himself out in the mirror as he waited for his coffee.

I am thinking, he is 5ft9/176cm

weak 5'10 more likely 5'9.5ish
Chris said on 17/Jan/12
Farrell looks almost two inches shorter than Willis in Hart's War. And with Renner in SWAT looked less than two inches taller. Doesn't seems to be a full 5'10. 5'9.5 for him (177 cms).

I actually met Colin at the Hollywood Roosevelt hotel and stood less than 5 feet away while my boss talked to him for a good 3 minutes. He is at least half an inch taller than this and could be a solid 5'11". i was sure to take note of his shoes and they were not suspect.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Nov/11
At the upper end of 5ft9, but not quite 5ft10. Between 177cm-178cm

If he's 5'10", he's a very small one. Looked diminutive in Horrible Bosses.

On some "women's top hollywod guys" website he is listed as a bit short, quoting:"...Colin may a be a little on the short side for some women but he has a lovely toned body with definition in all the right places..."

So now 178 cm is on the short site in women's eyes?

I would say 1,75. He's got the build of a guy that tall.

Not by much. This is accurate within a quarter inch and that quarter inch couuld go either way, lower or higher. Rob Paul nailed it because he's pro.

Brad2 said on 7/Aug/11
I worked on a film set with Colin Farrel. I'm 5'10 and he's definitely shorter than I am. Standing next to him I would have guessed he was about 5'7 to 5'8, which is about average for guys.
clown said on 28/Jul/11
stood next to him at comic-con this weekend. I'm 5'11 in my 1" sneaks, and he was just about dead level with me. Didn't see the make of his shoe but he was definitely sporting a heel. I would put him sub-5'10" but not as low as 5'9"
5\'8.56784 said on 28/Jul/11
I think this guy is a skinny 5'10. There's no way Donald Sutherland has more than 2 inches over him in those pics, Donald might be slouching a bit, but he's wearing dress shoes, and Farrell has at most an advantage of 2", so 5'10 flat.
Shaun said on 20/Jul/11
Click Here

If you look at the length of his calfs, quite short. He does not look like a legitimate 5'10" man to me. I think 5'9" is more accurate barefoot. Might be near 5'10" out of bed perhaps. What do you think Rob, is there a possibility he is 5'9"? He did look at least 5'10" next to Bieber but he tends to wear thick heeled shoes.
Shaun said on 20/Jul/11

Thats the picture of him with the emaciated build. Difficult to tell because of the shocking weight loss at that moment, looks about 5'9" based on proportions, hard to tell though.
Shaun said on 20/Jul/11
Mmm, I saw a picture of him a few weeks ago barefoot next to his car and he really did not look 5'10". I also saw pics of him on the beach during his extreme weight loss and he didn't look 5'10", maybe 5'9". Must say though that next to Bieber recently he easily looked 5'10".
dmeyer said on 19/Jul/11
rob in the pics wwith sturgess and sutherland he has 1.5 in heels and defenetly lifts considering the foot pose
DrJJ said on 15/Jul/11
I´ve identified the vehicle. Lincoln Navigator 2009 model. Height 78.3 inches.In the picture it has sunk a couple of inches, probably around 3 inches, in the gravel (because of its massive curb weight). Farrell hasn`t sunk much himself (possibly 0.5 inches) but is definitely just wearing socks.However, his weight is on the front foot which would give him an inch or so of extra height because of pelvis tilt (try this yourself, it really works). So the net height of the vehicle is 75 inches. Farrell is a good 6 inches lower than the SUV giving him a good 5´9". With pelvis tilt taken into account, Farrell is bang on the money 5 feet 8 inches. It is what he looks. He has always looked around 5´8" especially in his Ballykissangel days when he wasn´t a star, didn´t wear lifts nor have special camera angles etc..
DrJJ said on 14/Jul/11
In todays Mail Online there is a bit about him filming the Total Recall remake. He is pictured showing his youngest son around and putting him in a 4x4 vehicle which I can't identify ( maybe someone else can). If only we knew the height of the vehicle we would know his height. He is significantly lower than the vehicle in flat sneakers, indeed he is not as tall as the door of this vehicle. I will try to identify it. Please take a look and see if you recognise the model.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jul/11
Looks more 5ft9 range in S.W.A.T next to 188cm Samuel L. Jackson and
187cm LL Cool J...

My verdict is that he's 5ft9.5(177cm)

According to Madame Tussaud's in London, all of the wax replicas are to scale, 1:1. My 5' 7" mother is taller than the Colin Farrell effigy, so my best guess is 5'5"... at best.
he isn't much taller than Tom Cruise and it's a common fact Cruise didn't wear lifts in 'Minority Report'. ~5'9 is a decent estimate.

Cranberries (17m, 193.75-191.25) said on 21/Jun/11
5'9" max. Has a bad height complex, and as a result very frequently wears lifts (large ones) and has impeccable posture. Looking no more than 5'9" with 5'11" Jim Sturgess...
Click Here

Also looks 5'9" at best with 6'3" Gavin O'Connor.
Also, the Donald Sutherland pics prove nothing. Sutherland is an old man with terrible posture and a footware disadvantage.

Farrell also doesn't look strikingly larger than Woody Allen, even though Farrell has a footware advantage. I know, bad angle... but Woody Allen is tiny!

5`10 is definatley fair for him, I doubt that a height concious 5´8 guy would take off his shoes and stand side by side to a 6´guy and get pictures taken

I don't why people are ignoring these photos. Probably some of the best evidence to close the case of a celebs height. I've never thought more than 5'9 for Colin but he looks to be 1 inch taller than 5'9 Peter Gallagher and 2 inches shorter than the 6 footer. This discussion is pretty much done if you ask me, great pictures.

Look for pictures of Farrell together with Carson daly. Farrell in those 5 cm Herpes Boots Looks about 8 cm shorter than 6'1 daly in sneakers. My guess is 175-177. Would make Most Sense to me. He is quite skinny in Most Movies, but He Never really looked Short oder tall in them, no matter if Short pacino or tall ll cool j were the Co-Stars

in my opinion, he can´t be under 5´10.
it´s obvious that sutherland is slouching, but you have to remember that he is 6´3 in dress shoes and farrell isn´t dwarfed at all.

in this event, he is wearing lifts as well (look at the steep of his shoes compared to the shoes of the other guys). again, no monsters.

If farrell's 5-10, in the pic he'd have to be gaining 2 inches from his footwear and donald would be wearing normal dress shoes...Do u think he's 5-10 then?

I'd say 5ft9.5. He looked pretty tallish on the grahame norton show. The only thing that I think that is wierd with his height is someone who is 5ft9.5/5ft10 could pull off 6ft with the right footwear/lifts but I've never rely seen him stand as tall as that (yet he is known to wear lifts and large footwear) but who knows I don't always pay attention or see him much at red carpet events. Still, first thing in the morning I wouldn't say he stands shorter than 5ft9.5 because he could drop to 5ft9 late afternoon

lol @ the tip-toeing, bet he is embarrassed about that. His wife is like 5'6 or something, so in heels wouldn't be much smaller than him. But he is really going all out with the tip toeing, ballerina ****. Its not like he is just raising his heels slightly.

ok...everything about 5 ft 8 inches and 5 ft 9 is redicilos. this guy is hard to estimate bacause he ALWAYS wears boots or shues with heel, but hes body structure and next to other celebs makes him loock in the 177-178 cm range, hes not taller. and even in glenns pics he doesent loock more then tops 5 ft 10 inches even tho glenn said he was standing as straight as i he had a pole up his ass , but i can bet my life collin was wearing some kind of heel or boots wich gave him an advantage anyway , next to david beckham (182 cm) he locks 4 cm shorter, next to 170 ellen degeneres he locked about 6 ft 1, but he was wearing almost girl-like shues with a 6-7 cm heel and she hade converse on, the clip is on youtube "ellen kissing colin farrell". so around 178 cm, and he locks about 1-2 cm taler then 177 cm ewan mc gregor, but again collins shues have more heel,he also locked only max 2 cm taller then jared leto (175 cm) in alexander, also didnt lock as tall as 180 cm next to al pacino in the recruit but he might have wored suspect shues, maby colin to who knowns so.. sry glenn i dont think he´s 180 cm i just dont se him as being that tall no way ....

Omg lol. At this point, 5'11" is just as rediculous as the 5'8" and under claims. He's not 5'11. However, i am positive hes not 5'8", and i even doubt hes 5'9". I think he's closest to 5'10 if anything, and at the very least, 5'9" and tons of change.

How can Farrell be listed @ 5'10/5'11 while he appears clearly smaller than Bridget Moynahan in the recruit and you have her at 5'9"3/4
Doesn't make sense especially considering Bridget's flat soils and Farrell's suspicious footwear .
My guess is Moynahan around 1 to 1.5 inch taller than him barefoot (she might be around 5'10.5)

Valmont said on 18/Jun/07
He might wear heels just because they make legs more stylized (in a man or in a woman). Plus, a not very high heel it is always recommended because they are much more comfortable.

Anyway, hes too damn gorgeous and sexy to care about how tall is he. 5-9,5-10, stills higher than me, so I wouldnt have a problem :D
robotix said on 28/May/07
For those who like to make movie height comparisons, I think a good one is S.W.A.T. with colin farell (5-10?), Sam Jackson (6-2?) and LL Cool J (6-1?)
Stiffelio said on 23/May/07
Hey Rob, I actually said something along those lines. I haven't changed height since my youth. I was measured at 174cm at the military service med exams when I was 18 and now at 51 I'm still 174cm (5'8.5") for most of the day. There's the possibility I wasn't measured accurately at that time (and I didn't check as I wasn't a height nut then!)and I might have actually been taller. On the other hand my intra-day height fluctuation is also very small. I took samples last year over a month and what I got is the following: my average height right out of bed was 174.9cm; my early afternoon height was 174cm; and my height just before going to bed was 173.8cm. So there you are, I do have an 11mm (less than 1/2 an inch) height fluctiation but this is substantially lower than what has been mentioned here.

You may want to post this in the General height page.

[Editor Rob: the dropoff sounds right from afternoon to night, the vast majority by 5pm is gone and I would expect in adults the pattern wouldn't be that much different. The question is the variation in out of bed to lowest point, why some people lose more than others. Maybe their spine is better equipped to retain, I don't know, but maybe exercise regime could help.]
