His height really confuses me, he also has bad posture, sometimes he genuinely looks 177cm, other times he looks flat 175cm. This guy is anywhere from 175-177cm.

They probably refer tiny as in really skinny like if he was massive he would refer to as huge.

Hey Rob

Just thought I'd mention on the Mads Mikkelson "post mortem interview" for Hannibal (found on youtube) they talk briefly and seemingly jokingly about Hugh Dancy's height but they refer to him as tiny. Even if they were partly joking there was probably some truth to it also, I can't imagine they'd refer to a guy who's nearly 5'10 as that small.

Maybe worth checking into since it ties in with some other claims by people on this page? He seems like one of those guys who can give very different looks for his height.

Rob, could you look at the Mads Mikkelsen page? I've tried to comment on it and it says "Page not found".
[Editor Rob: I spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out why and went through the code and found a bug, if you see 'page not found' again it is a bug, please let me know which page thanks.]

5'8, 5'9 TOPS. Reminds me of Ian Somerhalder, who's CV USED to list 5'10

In confessions of a shopaholic his character Luke gives his tux size as a 48 regular. To wear a 48 regular you might be 6'2"-6'6" and 200-260 lbs he looks 5' 8" or 5'9" and 155lbs.

I met him in real life last year. I'm 177cm and he was noticeably shorter than me (I was actually surprised how short he was, compared to most actors). He's 5'9" TOPS.

5'9 flat no arguments there. Its obvious.
Rohee says on 28/Feb/14
Maybe 5'9 in heels

This does look really close the more I look at it. Mads looks to be at least two inchs taller, maybe a quarter-inch to half-inch more.

just saw him in Duane Reader in TriBeCa. He looks like 5' 9.5" tops. Maybe 5' 9".
truth says on 15/Feb/14
176-177cm is correct no taller no shorter.

5'9.5 would shock me. He looks like a flat 5'9" standing next to 6'0" Mads in all the event photos.
FM says on 2/Jan/14
I admit, despite his small frame, there are times when he can appear tall, I still don't think he's over 5'9", maybe even a bit under. I don't think he hits 5'10", let alone 5'11".

Same height as Paul Rudd: Click Here

And he looks a lot closer to 5'7" Jerry Bruckheimer, than 6'0 Jonathon Pryce:

Then he needs to have a peak height and current height listing.
Phantom says on 28/Jul/13

lol, they're in a field, talk about uneven footing.

Whenever they're both on a flat surface Fishburne is no more than an inch taller.

Dancy could very well be 5'9.5", but then Fishburne isn't 6'0", more like 5'10.5"-5'11".

Right, show me a single pic where Fishburne looks anything more than an inch taller than Dancy, I have yet to see one.
MaskDeMasque says on 26/Jul/13

Uneven floor and camera trickery is at play there. He's usually noticeably shorter than 6' Fishburne.

Hugh is definitely 8 cm (3.25") over Anne Hathaway (see "Ella Enchanted" movie). Ann is listed 5'7"-5'8". So Hugh is 178-181 cm (5'10.25"-5'11.25").
Silent d says on 23/Jun/13
In confessions of a shopaholic, He only looks 5 foot 9. 177cm.
Charz says on 22/Jun/13
he's way shorter than I expected....
MaskDeMasque says on 22/May/13

No, he looks shorter than Fishburne. 176-177cm is correct for Hugh.
186cm says on 26/Apr/13
No way Dancy is only 177cm!

He's almost the same height as 184cm listed Laurence Fishburne on the show Hannibal!

If Fishburne really is 184cm, then Dancy is at least 182cm.
Elizabeth says on 25/Dec/12
I think he is def. shorter. I saw of pic of him and Claire Danes in the same-type footwear and was maybe 2 inches taller.
