Comment on the Height of Colin Farrell

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.
184.3cm (Night) said on 29/Jul/15
@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.

He is 5'10 flat

Colin Farrell height: 5ft 10in (178 cm)

Always looks this.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Apr/15
He's taller than Ewan McGregor
Adamz said on 20/Apr/15
met him. 5-10 is a legit claim.
184.3cm said on 8/Apr/15
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.
Dom said on 7/Apr/15
Legit 5'10 guy

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!
dewno said on 16/Nov/14
classic example of a 5'10 guy, just looks shorter a lot
TJE said on 19/Oct/14
Nearer 5'10 than 5'9
krud said on 3/Oct/14
177 max
saccy said on 2/Oct/14
I Saw Him Once Very Closely At Airpot And BELIEVE ME He Is A Solid 5'10.
Mani said on 1/Jul/14
He is 5'9.5" (177 cm)
Mani said on 30/Jun/14
He's 5'9.5" or 177 cm
Sean said on 22/Jun/14
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).
James B said on 16/Mar/14
PJ said on 17/Feb/14
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.
lol93 said on 4/Dec/13
Rob I am very curious to what do you think about this footwear Colin Farrell frequently wears

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.
luca said on 26/Oct/13
colin and me go to the same yoga class so I see him very often and barefeet, I m 5f10 1/2 and next to me he is at least 2 inch shorter. I would say he is no more than 1M75
Rhonda said on 20/Oct/13

This is why I wouldn't use movie footage blindly to judge someones height.
cole said on 1/Oct/13
@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.

Chris said on 15/Sep/13
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]
mistwalker said on 10/Jul/13
Cruise wear massive lifts
John said on 4/Jul/13
Tom Cruise and Colin Farrell does seem the same height in Minority Report
david said on 24/Jun/13
I would say a solid 5ft9.75 guy just a shade below 5ft 10
Lady gogo said on 23/Jun/13
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.
cole said on 17/Jun/13
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
Frankie said on 8/Jun/13
Yes. Colin is 5'9. No more ...
MaskDeMasque said on 5/Jun/13

lol 5'7. He's 5'9 minimum.

same height as Kiefer whos around 5'8 Click Here
Forest Whitaker towers over him Click Here
Colin is 5'9 max
penguinboy25 said on 31/May/13
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!
MaskDeMasque said on 20/May/13

I agree. I also saw total recall and thought he looked 177cm.
ang said on 2/May/13
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''.
Joey said on 4/Feb/13
he is 176cm maybe 177cm on a good day..average height in the us, but here in germany he'd be below average :D
John said on 19/Jan/13
Rob have you seen "Cassandra's Dream"? There seems to be more than a 1 cm difference between Farrell and Ewan Mcgregor in that film
refresh said on 15/Jan/13
i am 176-175cm barefoot,in regular shoes i am 178 + my hair up and there you go just like 180cm! imagine with lifts and good body? see my point? 175-176cm:)
GC said on 11/Jan/13
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.
Balrog said on 9/Jan/13
He's clearly slouching with Al Pacino. Farrell does looks around 5'10'' maybe a little bit under 176-178 range.
Steven said on 9/Jan/13
spot on with Ewan McGregor: Click Here
leonari said on 8/Jan/13
Wow. Many posters here are either delusional or plain blind. Oh yeah and very jealous of this guy. He looks 5'10 everywhere. It's really sad and pathetic that so many who have no clue about height come here and post their BS. And how on earth is 5'10 on the short side? Please...
Trey said on 6/Jan/13

Not 177cm but 178 out of bed I think he could be his height
Joey said on 1/Dec/12
i'd buy 177cm in the morning a strong 5'9 at daytime
MaskDeMasque said on 19/Nov/12
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.
refresh said on 24/Oct/12
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?

[Editor Rob: foxx as has been talked about in the past, could be a guy who is a fraction over 5ft 9 but just said 5ft 9, like 176 range. Farrell I think is pretty near 5ft 10]

Rob, Colin's 5'10" claim is at the start of this video after the advertisement.

I thought I had posted this, but I guess I forgot.

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.
frenchie said on 1/Sep/12
he looks shorter
Dmeyer said on 22/Aug/12
In person he looked 177cm but 178cm is possible
lol93 said on 18/Aug/12
Rob you have to add that he said he is 5'10 in jay leno.He was a little shorter from jay leno by 1 cm and he had bigger shoes so 177cm weak 5'10 guy

This guy feels short, see his shoes here Click Here

His body proportions reminds me of Stallones, I think Farrels height is between 5'8.5" and 5'9.5"
dd said on 5/Aug/12
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.
CL said on 3/Aug/12
worked on a film with colin. spent a week standing next to him with shoes, without shoes, barefoot, etc...he's 5'10". nice guy, too.
Del said on 2/Aug/12
He was on Leno like a week ago. He said he was 5'10" & 165 lbs.
BigT said on 30/Jul/12
510" 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...
Marcus said on 15/Jun/12
Did you upgrade him recently Rob? Wasn't he listed at 177

Batri said on 14/Jun/12
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.
