LMAO, Andyman, The Rock is nowhere near the 6'5 mark.
Andyman said on 3/Apr/15
Just saw him next to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson(who is 6'5") and LL was maybe 2 inches shorter. So, 6'3" looks good to me
james said on 21/Mar/15
6'0.5 is more accurate
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Mar/15
Even slouching he's still comfortably taller than Paltrow.
Dmeyer said on 21/Feb/15
I met the Guy the smallest he could be is 186cm
grizz said on 15/Feb/15
az, more like 6ft1 -but it doesn't give us the full picture because they're so far from each other. He really is 6ft1.5. Maybe 6ft1.25, but nothing below that mark!
az said on 12/Feb/15
beside 6'2" Andrea Bocelli I think LL is 6 foot even. Not 6'2" at all. But HOTT

He was the same height as Jonathan Ross. So around the 6'1 mark.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Nov/14
A solid 6ft1. Looks shorter because he's so goddamned jacked!
Baskao said on 18/Nov/14
5-10. Camera magic. Slight build.

Not under 6ft 1.25in. He edges out the tall Eric Christian Olsen.

He looks 6'1 max with 5'9 listed Chris O'Donnell :

He seems to be 6'2 to 6'3 due to his meaty heels, he is no more than 6'1.
Ilyathe2nd said on 8/Jun/14
This article/interview says 6'1'', and it's hard to see why he would downgrade himself: Click Here
moe said on 11/May/14
I saw him filming in LA Union Station a few years ago, with Chris O'Donnell. First of all, Chris is SHORT! He's 5'7 or so, and when I saw him he was really skinny. LL was greeting passerbys, and looked fairly tall until I saw he had GIGANTIC heels on his shoes. These were thick, crush your toes if I accidentally step on them, three inch heels. If I had a camera phone with me, I would have taken a picture. Of all the celebrities I've seen, I never saw someone so blatantly wear hight enducing heels. With the heels he was maybe 6'1. He's probably 5'11 or so without them.
Graham said on 19/Apr/14
I'm exactly 189cm and I was walking past the dude and had a quick chat because I recognised him, he was maybe 2/3 cm taller than me with nike AirMax on, I had flat shoes on, so I peg him at probably 189/190 barefoot.
Dmeyer said on 7/Apr/14
I talked to him and had photo with him , he was Max 5cm taller than me we had about same shoes , in the pic h looked just 1cm taller than me but his posture isnt great , over 6 ft 1.5 is unlikely
KROC said on 7/Apr/14
LL Cool J 6'1-6'2? This has got to be a joke. He's 5'11.5 people. From what I hear, they do everything in the book to make him appear taller in these movies and tv shows. Apparently its working.
Raymond said on 6/Apr/14
Saw him the other day, I'm 6"1.5 and he's a big dude. Must be 6"2.5/6"3, wearing flat shoes aswell. As for his weight, I'm think 210-225 pounds, big dude.
James B said on 25/Mar/14
Looks 6'2
slick said on 30/Jan/14
I met him at Extra tv show I'm 6 foot looken up at him he towered over everybody there he is defn between 6' 3" & 6' 5" but what made him look more bigger was he was swole like a bodybuilder
toddos said on 23/Jan/14
An Ebony article from 2003 says 5'11"
During his recent visit to Atlanta, the physical infatuation that women--young and old, Black and White, mamas and daughters--have for him was on full display as sightings of the 5-foot-11 Queens, N.Y., native prompted women to fall all over themselves in an effort to get his attention. "LL, I love you," one lady screamed out from a passing car. "LL, you're so fine," another yelled. "Can I have a hug?" another lady said as she stopped her car in the middle of the street. "Look at those big, juicy lips. Lord, help me."

A similar scene played out recently at Howard University in Washington, D.C., where female students, usually known for their unshakeable sophistication and composure, hid in bushes and poached in trees, waiting for their chance to pounce on the entertainer. Security guards had to step in and restore order to a chaotic scene the likes of which he says he hasn't seen since the early days of his career. "People have been so supportive. If I had the answer to my success, I would bottle it and sell it. I would be running around to record labels saying, `I got some longevity here. Who wants a hit?'" he says. "I'm just thankful. It's amazing. It's a blessing. It appears that, in terms of intensity, there is rejuvenation in my career. I'm very appreciative that people enjoy what I'm doing, that they like what I'm doing. All I can do is just give them the best that I can give them."

For the man who seems to have it all, that, perhaps, is his greatest

I meant to say measured near 189cm in the morning
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jan/14
"LL Cool J height: 6ft 1.75in (187cm)"

Might've measured near 189cm and slyly rounded that off to 6ft3. People's knowledge of the metric system is fairly poor. I heard a female colleague of mine once gossiping about how her boyfriend had just had his physical how he was measured 182cm tall and her friend asked how tall that was in feet and she replied "6ft2...yeah I know he's really tall"
Lenad is sexy said on 4/Jan/14
6'1-6'1 1/2 that's likely his range

dmeyer said on 1/Jan/14
I had a thick shoe when i met him That gave 3.3cm So was 184.6cm Just about 6'0.75 in He looked no less than 1.5in taller and no more than 2in his shoes were brand new Nike air force So no less than 2.9-3cm , 184.5 me plus 4-5cm 188.5-189.5 cm about 6'2.25-6'2.75 shoes on minus 3cm 6'1-1.5in but i think ll isnt 188 or 185cm but 186-187cm not outside 6'1.5 Is perfect , This height Is either afternoon or evening wakes at 6'2-2.25
Lenad is sexy said on 31/Dec/13
looks a solid 4 inches taller than chris O'Donnell. So just over 6'1 but not quite 6'2 seems on the cards for ll cool j
Lenad is sexy said on 31/Dec/13
Mathew said on 26/Dec/13
No way he's near 6'3". I wouldn't be surprised if he was under 6'1", but I'd list him at 6'1" to be nice.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/13
187-188cm is fair. In S.W.A T he was 4in taller than Colin Farrell (not quite 5ft10) and similiar to Samuel L. Jackson (6ft2 flat in 2003), maybe a centimetre shorter at worst.
G Money said on 12/Nov/13
I can tell you for sure that he's 6'3". I'm 6'0", and took a photo with him this summer. I was so surprised how tall he was when I met him, it was the first thing I said to him. Don't believe the comments on this site about him being 6'0". That's a bunch bull!
dmeyer said on 3/Nov/13
I was near 6'0.75 shoes on He looked no more than 6'2.75 shoes on He had air force than give 1.2in rob has him right 186cm Is closer than 188cm
Avery said on 2/Nov/13
I'm six foot even. LL slouches allot.
He is 6 "3"
Balrog said on 12/Oct/13
Him at 5'11" would put O'Donnell at 5'6", Farrell at 5'7" and Samuel L Jackson at 5'11" aswell.

Really, no chance.
Viper said on 11/Oct/13
Hes not even 6'0. Hes 5'11.

And yeah he has aged very well.
TeeTee said on 9/Oct/13
I don't care if he is 6' or 6'3". He's gorgeous. Besides a couple of inches only matters one way!!!!!
Mathew said on 10/Sep/13
I seem to remember him looking about 3" taller than G when the picture was on here back in the day. LL was probably slouching, but still. I really doubt the 6'1.5".
Dmeyer said on 8/Sep/13
I also met him there and he was noticably taller than me in 3.3cm shoes he was near 189cm shoes on ( 3cm air force ) the Guy is aleast 6'1 1/8 -6'1.25
Chameleon said on 8/Sep/13
@NickyV: +1 for you cheers mate, he even himself claimed no more than 6' and I guess thats only with shoes on..
BoredDwayne said on 28/Aug/13
James is 6'3. Funny comments on this site.
kalil said on 17/Aug/13
The giveaway with L.L. is that he is always appearing shirtless. Simply look at his upper torso. Even with long legs, that is not the torso of a 6'3" or even 6'1.5 individual. Just like his song ("Radio") says, he's a 6 footer. He's on the strong side at 6'.05"
kalil said on 17/Aug/13
L.L. is rarely ever seen without timberlands and a small lift/insole. His true height is 6'.05".
6 ft 3in said on 13/Aug/13
He is constantly taller than will smith who is listed at 6ft 1.15in on this site

188cm out of bed, Rob?
[Editor Rob: probably]
Lenad is sexy said on 20/Apr/13
he looks 6'1 range when he stands properly next to people. But I can admit he comes across as a little shorter because he slouches and has stocky build
Dmeyer said on 17/Apr/13
I was 184.5cm shoes on he seemed 188.5-189.5cm shoes on 3cm type so 185.5-186.5 barefeet 6'1-1.5
joe joe said on 16/Apr/13
@cemeleon he was around 17 when he performed that song and probably still growing. so if he claimed 6ft then. chances are he's around 6'1 - 6'2 now easy
blakegriff said on 8/Feb/13
LL is definitely 6'3 I met him a few times at parties and I'm 6'2 and he was a little taller than me so 6'3 would be about right.
Mathew said on 12/Jan/13
One of the more obvious guys in need of a shorter listing. He never really looks over 6'1", and he can often look under that.
Mathew said on 5/Dec/12
6'1" max.
Dmeyer said on 16/Nov/12
In person looked under 6'2 but over 6'1
Pryde said on 4/Nov/12
@Chameleon- that song came out in '85 and he was only like 17 there, also in the photo posted with 50 cent i got a pair of those Jordans he wearing and they only add about a quarter inch in height... not much support in those
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Oct/12
Absolutely Jake...but I think he's a 6ft1.5 guy who maybe would like to be taller. Hence the 6ft3 claims and the reason why Dmeyer saw him at 190cm in Nike shox

Of course there's nothing wrong with that. I'm 6ft3 on the dot and I wouldn't mind being taller than my 72 year old dad whose 6ft4. As would my brother whose 6ft3.5. But we still appreciate our height s because we know we easily surpass that mark in dress shoes.
WalkingTall 6ft 3.25in said on 22/Sep/12
I dont know,the proportions just arent there,his body doesnt correspod to this height somehow.He does have big muscles but his frame isn't wide or long as you'd expect from a near 6'2 guy.I'm kinda puzzled.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/12
Rob, could this guy be 186cm?
BigT said on 30/Jul/12
Hes 181 cm at most.
Chameleon said on 30/Jul/12
Click Here

at 1:57 he even describes himself at 6 feet, which would be in shoes because he is 5'11.
Chameleon said on 13/Feb/12
He's 5'11 not 6 feet
avi said on 12/Feb/12
no way more than 6ft
i asked ll cool j said on 27/Jan/12
LL cool j told me hes between 6'1 & 6'1.5 so that makes him just 186cm not 187
Chameleon said on 27/Jan/12
Cairo86 said on 3/Oct/07
He does not look anywhere as tall as 6ft 1.5. But the 3rd photo shows us that his pose for the camera is bending down. So in fact could I think he will reach 6ft 1.
RobertJ said on 3/Oct/07
A guy whose really 6'2"-6'3" never looks as short as LL Cool J does in the above pics. Even slouching a guy in that range will look minimum 6 feet or 6'1". Take a look at Routh or any legit 6'2'' guy, there height doesn't fluctuate that much because there actually tall.
dmeyer said on 2/Oct/07
thanks will and daminal he did look 6'1 easy when i met him
Danimal said on 2/Oct/07
Met him on a movie set here in Montreal a few years back and he had inches on my 5'11"-6'0" actor buddy. Looked to be at least 6'2"-6'3".
Wil said on 1/Oct/07
I saw him today at Atrium in Soho NYC...Definitely a solid 6'1 if not a weak 6'2.
dmeyer said on 10/Sep/07
did look no shorter than 6'1 in person
Big T said on 10/Sep/07

Looking at those pics, LL is probably 2 inches taller than 50

How can you say they look the same
Fr33DoGG said on 8/Sep/07
take a look at these shots. with 50 cent. they look the same height. glenn,is impossible 1.87 for LL Cool J

dmeyer said on 23/Aug/07
6 ft 1.25 fits him good
Viper said on 23/Aug/07
Why did they announce him at 5-11 at the 1996 MTV music awards?
Anonymous said on 22/Aug/07
he is 6'1 and 1/4, 186cm according to his mugshot in hbo series oz
max said on 14/Aug/07
he looks more like 6ft.
Franco said on 3/Aug/07
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH Glenn's face in the 1st picture cracked me up, yeah yeah i know time has passed but it's just his face looks waaaay too oval and enlongated which is very weird, in his younger pictures his face was rounded. :D
but i am thankful for these pictures and amaze me how a person changes so much through the years :)

tbh COOL J doesnt really look 187cm anywhere, more of a 182cm
Dermot said on 2/Aug/07
He dont look 6'1 in those pics
Coral said on 2/Aug/07
I'd say LL is about 6'1. I think Glen looks better with the long hair in the second picture.
dmeyer said on 30/Jul/07
thanks franco i met ll and he is aleast 185 cm
Coffin_fodder said on 30/Jul/07
Looks no more than 6 in the first picture on the left
Jay said on 26/Jul/07
Derek, this site had him listed as 5'10, several other sites have him at this height. Why its not on this site anymore, I dont know but here is the page, I google'd it

Derek said on 19/Jul/07
Jay- Mario is closer to the camera. He's around 5'11", so LL could easily be 6'1".
Jay said on 18/Jul/07
Still doesnt look even 6'1 to me...

Franco said on 6/Jul/07
this guy is in the 185cm minimum 188cm maximum

187cm is his height i think
hey said on 1/Jul/07
i saw him on the awards show and he was taller than 50 cent by like 2 inches so glenn ur prediction is probably right
runt said on 30/Jun/07
definitely doesn't think it looks 'cool' to stand up straight.
But he's pretty straight with 5-7+heels Mariah Carey in this pick
Click Here
dmeyer said on 28/Jun/07
i think ll is 6'1.75 in morning and 6'1 before bed like a solid 6'1 so the height above is about late morning height even morning height is not a lie but it is just your max height that stay for 15 minutes
dmeyer said on 27/Jun/07
in the pic we have together he looks 1 cm taller but i was standing as tall as possible
dmeyer said on 27/Jun/07
to make a long story short we were wearing similar footwear i had 1.4 he had 1.3 or 1.4 at 5'11 he was about 2 in taller
Red said on 23/Jun/07
I was just standing next to him today and I'm 5'11". He's quite a few inches taller than I am. In a picture we took, he's hunched over to fit into the shot and he's still taller than I am. My friends and I believe he's actually 6'2" or 6'3" with sneakers on.
dmeyer said on 27/May/07
normal footwear are 0.75 to 1.25 in heels when i wear 1.6 in heels i can look 6 ft so i think someone that wears more than 1.25 in heels is hard to judge his height or when i wear nike shox with 1.4 ib it give you aleast 1 cm boost and also when i wear 1.6 in heels like 4 full cm all 5'7 guys looked 5'6 and and 5'10 seemed 5'9ish and i had only 0.6 in over 1 in heels so just imagine 2.75 in heels ot 3.25 wish will give you 2.25 to 2.6 in heels would make you look taller than you are also when i met ll i had 1.4 in heels and he stell looked about 2 in taller maybe 1.75 in but he also had 1.3 1.4 in heels so 6'1 no less
Jay said on 27/May/07
I can see maybe a weak 6'1. How tall are you Jack?
jack said on 27/May/07
I met him at the rockstar (marky mark movie) after party - he's an honest 6'1".
Jay said on 25/May/07
I still dont see him being this height, the picture of him with The Rock and the 5'11 football player has me convinced he's 6.05 sloucher.
brazilianchick said on 24/May/07
how come nobody can be over 6' on this site. Everybody's gotta be 5'11.5"
Alex said on 24/May/07
He could be 6'0 at the most. I remember in Deep Blue Sea he only looked a bit if any taller than Rebecca Romijn who is 5'11.
Viper said on 17/May/07
I still think 5-11 is correct for him.
Dai said on 16/May/07
Didnt think he was this tall, thought he was about 5'11,perhaps because of his stocky frame.
Austrian said on 13/May/07
or wait i have another comparison, look on this website at the pictures of Forest Whitaker beside Glenn

now tell me, does he really look only 1 cm taller than LL looks here?
Austrian said on 13/May/07
yea, why is he rated as 6'2?

next to Glenn he doesnt look taller than some guys who are rated as 5'10 on this website

and besides that 5'11 guy in the other pic he looks the same height

so maybe he slouches a lot and is 6' in fact, but 6'2? i cant see it
Anonymous said on 6/May/07
Here he is with 6'1 Chris klein. This is strange

payton said on 3/May/07
omg i think that ll is so freaking sexy i couldnt believe when i heard that he was married. i deffinantly think he gives the illusion of being taller that 6"1 to me and i am pretty good at telling how tall guys are....
blacjac4 said on 23/Apr/07
I watched an episode of LL's TV Show called In The House on channel TVone on Apr 21,2007 and on that show was former running backs Eddie George & Rickey Watters doing a golf scene, now Eddie's web site bio & NFL stats lists him as 6'3" and Rickey's NFL stats lists him as 6'1" now Rickey in some moments looked slightly taller & other moments they seemed to be about the same height LL had on sneakers i could not tell if they were golf shoes & Rickey had on metal spiked golf shoes, i did not notice what type of shoes Eddie had on but you can clearly see that Eddie towered over LL and Rickey having to look down at them when they spoke to one another a good 2.75 - 3", the episode may replay again this week.
Anonymous said on 16/Apr/07
i think that pic cj posted down ends this.... dude is only 5'11

[Editor Rob: wait...Justin who many agree could indeed be 6ft and cool j (who IS taller than timbersnake) has to therefore be taller, but he's really only 5ft 11. Man, I'm confused]
Ball-A-Hallic said on 8/Apr/07
defently seems 6'1 i always thought he was closer to 6'3 but 6'1 or 6'0.5 is believable
dmeyer said on 30/Mar/07
he was 1.75 to 2 inches on me
Avery said on 16/Mar/07
I saw him and he stoops alot. I asked him could he do me a favor by being the FAN that I am. He was like aight my friend. He looks around 6 foot 3
glenn said on 12/Mar/07
barefoot.he towered 6ft,50 cent,when i saw them together.

Glenn, when you say he looks 6'3 nowadays, is that in shoes?

how does this glenn run into all these celebs lol?
Anonymous said on 6/Mar/07
i agree that he is closer to 6ft, maybe 511.5, but what baffles me is those pics of him with Hugh Jackman. In one pic you see he's wearing what looks to be normal running shoes, but he looks huge compared to Jackman, those are the only pics ive seen that make him look over 6ft.
RZA said on 2/Mar/07
I love this guy.I've been a fan since walkin' with a panther, read his book, seen him live etc. His height has always been a mystery and a lot of times I heard 5'11" and that seemed right. So I watched 30 Rock last night and there were at least 2 scenes where he and Alec Baldwin stood face to face and Baldwin had at least an inch on him. I don't hate cause I love this guy he's been an inspiration to me but he's no taller than 5'11" in shoes.
Blackmax said on 2/Mar/07
LL's my favourite rapper of all time, he's the most versatile. In regards to his height 185cm max no more. If you look at pics of him with 50 cent they are of similiar height.
Viper said on 2/Mar/07
I really do beleive his barefoot height is 5-11.
jason said on 1/Mar/07
fuck i just dont se the height..
he locks no more then tops 6 feet! and that`s generous. Next to the rock and that 5`11 guy he locked 181 cm tops, ans with glenn not an inch over 6 feet!.
thejackal said on 26/Feb/07
glenn, did you ask l.l. how tall he was when you were on the phone with him?

how do these celebrities feel about you sizing them up in the photos?
Anonymous said on 13/Feb/07
if anyone can post that pic of him with the rock, that would pretty much help end this debate. He's not the 6'3 he claims. Honestly he looks 5'11 in that picture, but he's most likely 6-6.05 in person.
CJ said on 13/Feb/07
He is very, very hard to put a height on. Here he is with The Rock and Jerome Bettis who is measured by the NFL at 5'11". Click Here
dmeyer said on 24/Jan/07
to me ll is a 186 guy
Anonymous said on 24/Jan/07
I saw LL at Benihana in Manhasset, Long Island, NY. I'm 6'0 to the exact dot - no rounding either way - literally exactly 6'0 and I stand up perfectly straight, especially to gauge height. He was taller than me. I am not gonna speculate an exact height, but I will say signifigantly taller, and noticably taller for you guys to run with. Also, he stands up straight and has ridiculous muscles.
Austrian said on 13/Jan/07
ehm dunno but in none of these pics he looks 187 tbh
Jake W. said on 13/Jan/07
I'd say 6'0.5" is a good estimate. Maybe 6'1".
jason said on 12/Jan/07
he surely doesen`t loock anywhere near 6ft 1,5 in,in the pics,more like 5-11.
Glenn said on 5/Jan/07
He is the Sly of the rap world.along with DMX.
Alex said on 5/Jan/07
Glenn, I've seen him listed at 6'3 before and I questioned it in the movie Deep Blue Sea where he wasn't much taller than Rebecca Romijn who is almost 5'11. I'd say he's anywhere from 6'0-6'1.
Glenn said on 5/Jan/07
My friends and others on this site agree on his various heights.I said 6-1 makes the most sense.I WILL bring it up to him.he is that pun.he was 6-3 last 2 times I saw him.gave the strange illusion of towering over 50 Cent.
Super Smoke said on 4/Jan/07
Yo peeps Im back. I have changed my name to Super Smoke, since there is another smoke around here somewhere.

After seeing any episode of Tyra Banks chat show, I am finally in agreement that LL is 6"1 but no taller. Here is why:

1. Tyra Banks is 59-510 and was wearing 2-inch heels.
2. LL was about 1.5 to 2 inches taller that her.
3. If Tyra is indeed 5"10 barefoot, 2 inch heels would make her 6ft. LL had 1inch trainers on but was still a good 2 inches taller. What is LL taking away an inch on his trainers??? Do the maths lol.
Minimum height for LL is 6.05.

Looking at the pic with the Rock - somewhere below, there is no way LL could be anywhere near 63 people that say that are crazy. Thats like me saying Im 62 I am 6ft in case any one was wondering.

I have to say he (LL) got me for a number of years. Someone needs to tell that guy to sort out his posture. Its terrible. If he carries on like that, one day he really will be 511 lol. Rob your input please.

[Editor Rob: I think glenn if he ever sees cool again should tell him to go to the doctor and get a prescription to cure his SNS...squash neck syndrome.]

5'11 listed for him is like 5'7 for p diddy is bullshit since ll apeared just about 186 mark and 6'1.5 morning and 6'1 flat night since he was about 1.5 to 2 in on me 5'11 is impossible and 6'3 is impossible 6'1 strong for him i thaught he was 187 because i thaught i was 182 but since i am closer to 180-1 range then he is closer to 185-6 range similar height with costner 4 to 5 cm taller than me same thing for costner i use to think they were near 6'2 they are 187 moning and 185 night

[Editor Rob: might settle on 186cm for this one, maybe]
Glenn said on 23/Dec/06
Can mysteriously range in height from 5-11 to 6-3.must be 6-1.thats the midpoint.
aussie bloke said on 15/Dec/06
No way have you got this one right! He appeared SHORTER than Thomas Jane in deep blue sea, and Thomas Jane is 5ft10! how does that make him almost 4 inches taller?????
Glenn said on 8/Dec/06
Sorry to catch attitude Dmeyer.but I go nuts when someone puts words in my mouth.not that you meant harm.I still stand by Colin at 5-11.but LL did leave a strange 5-11 impression to me and my friends in the early 90s.6-1 tops.leaving strange impressions of 6-3,6-4 as well.this guy is another DMX ,height chameleon.
Glenn said on 7/Dec/06
Its not his fault with the english.I talked to him on the phone once 6 months ago.nice guy.spoke fine.I just never said LL was 5-11.I said he strangely appeared that well as 6-3, he must be in the middle.6-1.

[Editor Rob: he's got the 'hulking' shoulder look with Glenn...the guy *is* taller than 50 cent and doesn't look more than 2 inches shy of Rock.]
dmeyer said on 7/Dec/06
sorry glenn i am french i do understand english you did say many times that colin was 5'11 when i saw him around 5'9 to 5'9.5 and ll cool j is a hair over 6 feet 1 and you said you saw him at 5'11 sorry if i hurt your filling you do have good judgment most of the times we talked on the phone you seemed like a nice person and sorry again and maybe the low heeled mocassin he weared were lifted in a way we dont see i do recall low heeled mocasin with 2.4 inches heels i just cant see colin over 5'10 exept if he wears lifts
Viper652 said on 7/Dec/06
Yeah, I figured dmeyer was another nationality.
Glenn said on 6/Dec/06
You dont make sense dmeyer cause not only cant you write english,you dont read english right either.your putting words in my mouth.and Im not explaining.reread my postings.maybe youll get it.

[Editor Rob: I think dmeyer is French]
dmeyer said on 6/Dec/06
glenn dont make sens sometimes i met colin farrell and ll cool j and ll cool j looks 3 to 4 inches taller than colin and glenn see them both as 5'11 when i met colin he was strugling to hit 5'10 and ll cool j was a solid 6'1er
dmeyer said on 5/Dec/06
at the shortest 185 cm 6'0.75 6'1.25 186 cm in the pic i have he looks only 0.5 in taller than me but he was sloushing and i was standing tall similar height with costner i had 1.4 casual dockers shoes and he had nike air force with 1.4 to 1.5 in heels since i was standing as tall as possible 6'1.25 could be it close to 6'2 in the morning i met hin at 10 pm
dmeyer said on 4/Dec/06
when i met him i thaught he was 187 cm but i thaught i was 182 cm since i am more 180 to 181 he is more 185 to 186 like 6 feet 1 also he has not good posture in pics we looked the same height 6'1 to 6'1.25 is more realistic i dont think he had lifts since he was wearing high cut nike the were no elevator they did have 1.5 inch heels but i had 1.4 in heels that night 185 to 186 cm hanks was closer to muy height than ll cool j

[Editor Rob: 186cm could be it...he's taller than 50 cent.]
dmeyer said on 4/Dec/06
looked about 2 inches on me we both had 1.5 sneakers on closer to 6'1 at night mesurments does look very tall in the 3rd pic
Viper652 said on 24/Oct/06
Glenn has seen him as short as 5-11. Whether he is that height or slouches could be debatable. I think he truly is 5-11 in barefeet though.
dmeyer said on 23/Oct/06
he looked 4 to 5 cm taller than me
DMEYER said on 22/Oct/06
i think the 5'11 listimg is loike the 5'7 listing for p.dady wish is not true i met ll cool j he is minimum 6'1 possibly 6'2
Glenn said on 22/Oct/06
I agree with Padraig that LL must be close to 6-1.with a slouch he can look 5-11ish.with good footwear,suspicious or not,6-3.
Jason said on 22/Oct/06
Okay, we dont live together anymore, but i'll see what i can do, also how do you explain the huge difference in height for LL Cool J, Padraig? What height do you think he is?

[Padraig: I think he is more likely 6 feet 1 than 6 feet. Don't rule out Cool looking shorter due to his posture being worse, we all can see him looking shorter with Glenn above right. I'm trying to be a bit realistic with the whole lifts and size of his shoes. The trainers he's wearing beside 50 Cents, who is in Timberlands, really don't look out of the ordinary.]
Jason said on 21/Oct/06
personally, I doubt he's over 6'1, I also doubt he's 5'11, he seems to be around the 6ft mark, probably 6 1/2 with a serious slouch. The only reason he probably looks taller is because he wears Timberland boots, my brother has a pair and they easily add 2 inches and with insoles 2 1/2.

[Padraig: 2.5 inches? WTF. I dare you to post a photo of them, with a tape measure resting on the heel of these boots :=)

I'll tell you what, I'll ask Rob to give me a photo of a large heeled workman boot with a similar heelstyle as those timberlands.]
Viper652 said on 21/Oct/06
I doubt hes 6-1. So much evidence points towards 5-11. I mean, the dude is listed at 5-11 all over the internet even.
sam said on 20/Oct/06
Or maybe he's just a 6'1"ish guy with a serious slouch on certain occasions.
Smoke said on 20/Oct/06
I agree with Jay.When he was next to the rock he looked way small. Then he is all of a sudden taller then jackman. Something is not right.Insoles all the way.

[Padraig: But not 3 inches of insoles. If you say 6 feet or 6 feet 1/2 inch and that he's packing 1.5 inches of lifts then you might have a better impression to argue he's shorter :=0]
Jay said on 19/Oct/06
Padraig, how do you explain his height from standing next to chris klein and val kilmer to standing next to hugh jackman? There is photos with him beside the rock, and he is alot shorter, close to 6ft at most, so for him to have gained that many inches to be taller then jackman he must be wearing a few insoles in those trainers.
Glenn said on 19/Oct/06
True Padraig.
Viper652 said on 19/Oct/06
Maybe LL wears munster trainers.
Smoke said on 19/Oct/06
People this man is 5"11.I went to his Concert on the 13 with my two friends. We were right near the front and both of my friends say he looked short. Not that 511 is short. One of my friends is 6"3 and the other is 5"10-5"11.

[Padraig: A strange thing I notice on occasions when reading this site.

If a celebrity appears in a photo 1 or 2 inches shorter than their entry, this is used as great evidence for them actually being that height, but when the same celebrity appears at the actual height he/she gets listed at, it must be lifts or the other celebrity who is slouching.

For instance, Jackman stands 6 feet 3 in his trainers and LL Cool J stands 6 feet 3.5-4 in his trainers in those photos halfway down this thread. Those who are clutching at 5 feet 11 LL must be left to ponder the only logical conclusion. That being, he is somehow packing 3 inches of lifts in his 1.5 inches of trainers.

WTF? I mean PLEASE, 3 inches of f***ing Lifts. That's 2/3rds the height of a can of Pepsi Max.]
Glenn said on 18/Oct/06
In the early 90s LL appeared 5-11,6ft to 6-3.with that one weird illusion of looking 4 inches taller than 6ft 50 cent in the street.
Viper652 said on 18/Oct/06
Its not that crazy when you think of a guy like Sly who can roughly pull off the same thing.
Viper652 said on 18/Oct/06
Which Jason is which here?
Glenn said on 17/Oct/06
Thank God im not nuts when I saw him range from 5-11 to 6-4!

[Padraig: Does this man have taller identical doubles? That's an insane range.]
Jason said on 17/Oct/06
That Jason isn't me (damnit!). I have no idea how tall LL really is, but I'll take your word for it. :)
Viper652 said on 17/Oct/06
Jason, this guy truly is 5-11 in his barefeet. I love LL but hes not over that.
Jason said on 16/Oct/06
he goes from looking 5'11 beside Chris Klein, then 6.05 beside Val Kilmer and then 6-3ish beside Hugh Jackman, I think it's pretty obvious this guy wears lifts, he's all over the place.
Schwing said on 6/Oct/06
Not to drag up auld ground, but with reference to the comparison to Westwood down below, Westwood is a clear 6'5. I've heard it twice recently; Vernon Kay (6'4) spoke about Westwood being taller than him, and an interviewer had him at 'almost 6 and a half feet'. Hope this is helpful for something.
Glenn said on 25/Sep/06
What do you look like grady? I know I dont look old,and I get the ladies.
dmeyer said on 25/Sep/06
in person he looked about 2 inches on me so 6 feet 1 to 6 feet 1.5 is possiblr 186-7 range
MrGrady said on 24/Sep/06
Cool J has got to be a legitimate 6.05, possibly 6'1''. Look how much taller Cool J is to this Glenn guy at the shoulders, the desperity is the same in both photos..................................................
Glenn said on 21/Sep/06
Exactly Jay.I think that may be it.
Jay said on 21/Sep/06
I can see 6'1 aswell, slouching in regular shoes 5'11, and standing up straight with Timberland boots on 6'2.5ish.
Glenn said on 21/Sep/06
Actually 6-1 would make more sense.slouched looking the right footwear 6-3.
Glenn said on 20/Sep/06
True Jay.would explain the short and tall sightings myself and others have seen.
Jay said on 19/Sep/06
He could be a 6ft sloucher that wears lifts...
Ilyas said on 16/Sep/06
For Smoke,
At VMA'S, maybe it was 50 cent who was wearing lifts and not LL and so they had the same height, This solution explain and confirm that LL is 6ft 1.5 (because 50cent is 6ft0 so with lifts he could be 6ft1) but we don't know if it's the reality so .....

Sorry for my bad english, I'm french.
Viper652 said on 12/Sep/06
I truly think the man wears major lifts ala Sly.
Danimal said on 12/Sep/06
Viper, he would have to had 4" lifts to be THAT tall. I'm no fool and I'm usually a great estimater of height, especially when I'm face to face with someone. He's not under 6'0".
Viper652 said on 12/Sep/06
Smoke, I personally think the man wears major lifts, not just trainers.
smoke said on 12/Sep/06
Not regular sneakers Viper. They have a heel, which can boast your height by around 1.2 to 1.5 cm. However there are some trainers like Nikes Tn's that give a 1.7 cm boast. Come on there must be at least on person on this site who has wore a pair of Tn's and felt really really tall. Taller then they would when wearing any other type of trainers. Rob your views please.

[Editor Rob: you mean inches I think...

tn's, they do look pretty thick beasts, I'd be surprised if they weren't in the 1.5 inch at least looking at them, 1.6-7, I dunno about the insole...]
Viper652 said on 12/Sep/06
I beleive you Danimal, but he was wearing lifts when you met him. He's 5-11.
Anonymous said on 11/Sep/06
he is almost as tall as 191 hartnet and just about freeman and sam jackson height 5 11 is imposible 6 feet1 at the very shotest
Danimal said on 11/Sep/06
Viper, I met the man face to face and talked with him for half an hour. He's not 5'11".
Viper652 said on 11/Sep/06
Smoke, when you say trainers are you talking about regular sneakers?
Smoke said on 11/Sep/06
Look LL cool J is no taller than 6ft. Have any of you seen this year's VMAs? The man is the same height as 50 cent. 6ft max I am sorry. Trust me shoes can add 1.7cm to your height. If you are a well-built guy and are 6ft, trainers can give the impression that you are like 6ft 2/3 to the untrained eye, especially if the person looking up at you is wearing flats. Trust me I know. I am 6ft, I have a friend who is 6ft 1, yet when I wear my Nike Tn's I seem a few cm's taller. He even thinks I am taller than him some times. I don't need to lie about my height, because I am not as vain as LL. LL thinks he could get away with saying he is 6ft 3 because no one here is ever going to meet him barefooted. Yo Glen I tell you what, next time you see him ask him to take his shoes of and stand next to you, I bet he will try and punch you in the face for asking that lol. If he does then that is your answer lol to his height. If he was 6ft3 he would wear flat shoes most of the time. Tall people tend to wear flat foots, because they don't want to seem imitating.
Glenn said on 11/Sep/06
Really? never met him.missed him by one second last of the worst.
Viper652 said on 11/Sep/06
Sam is looking around 6-1 these days.
Glenn said on 10/Sep/06
I thought Samual was 6-2? and Samual wasnt wearing similiar boots?
Viper652 said on 10/Sep/06
Maybe he had the leg surgery. Im 99.9 percent sure he wears huge lifts.
Ed said on 10/Sep/06
In Swat he looked taller than Samuel L. Jackson at times, and then other times shorter. I think Jackson is about 6ft1.5 these days maybe 6ft1, and LL's probably about 6ft maybe 5ft11 plus, and favors big heeled footwear. He wore big cop boots in Swat, similar in H2O,same for Mindhunters, and boots in Deep Blue Sea. He always looks big on screen, but he's seems to follow Vin Diesel's approach.
Glenn said on 10/Sep/06
For me,he holds the title for biggest height change in front of my eyes.from 5-11 to 6-4.Viper,why do you think he is 5-11? did you hear this and or see pics of this? Im with you kind of,cause I saw him 6ft tops back in the day.but now I wonder if he has DMXtitus.or is SLYTITUS?
Viper652 said on 10/Sep/06
He could If he had Sly's lifts which I think is a great possibility at this point. Hes 5-11.
Danimal said on 9/Sep/06
Nah, he's over 6'0" Viper. HE couldn't have had 2" on my 6'1" actor friend if he was a mere 5'11" himself. I just don't see it. I stood RIGHT in front of him. Like ONE foot apart from him. He was all decked out in an armani suit, which probably cost 10-15k.
Glenn said on 8/Sep/06
Its hard for me to believe he wears lifts for some reason.
Viper652 said on 8/Sep/06
In reality hes 5-11 barefoot. The man wears major lifts.
Danimal said on 8/Sep/06
I believe you Glenn.
Glenn said on 8/Sep/06
I agree D,but I dont remember him that tall back in the day.6ft tops.
Glenn said on 8/Sep/06
Whats more cool is lets guess how tall will he look now? as with others Viper.
Danimal said on 7/Sep/06
Smoke, I can judge height probably better than most. If he's wearing lifts, how the hell am I to know. The man was taller than my 6'1" friend in 2 scenes they shot together. End of story.
Anonymous said on 7/Sep/06
Your all weird lol who cares how tall he is. Hes about 6ft2 why would he lie about his height. Its all you short people who have got issues lol.
Viper652 said on 7/Sep/06
Glenn, you have one interesting job. I think it would be cool as hell to meet LL a lot.
Viper652 said on 7/Sep/06
He called up Sly to get advice on the best lifts.
Glenn said on 7/Sep/06
My friend made the same 5-11 estimation.I have 2 more pics to he looks 6ft,and the other 6-2 I think next to me.he consistantly looks 6-3 nowadays.I MUST ask him.
Viper652 said on 7/Sep/06
Glenn, you said he looked 5-11 when you first met him. And hes billed at 5-11 all over the internet. Shoot, they even announced he was 5-11 at a MTV music awards show once. Hes 5-11 barefoot.
J. said on 7/Sep/06
I never heard of him wearing lifts but he judging on how famously vain he is, I wouldn't put it past him.
Glenn said on 6/Sep/06
Is it known that he wears lifts? is that the word out there like Sly?
dmeyer said on 6/Sep/06
its true in haloween he looked close to legit 6 feet 3 hartnet so no smaller than 186 187 range
Smoke said on 6/Sep/06
I think there are people here who don't know how to judge height. LL cool J is 5"11/6ft.This is not an issue. The man wears lifts, people need to understand this. If a person that is 5"11 or 6ft wears high heel trainers they can look like someone that is 6"1.5 or 6"2, especially if another 510 person is wearing flats.
Viper652 said on 6/Sep/06
Its pretty obvious that he wears major lifts. You wouldnt think he would be that vain but he is.
Ed said on 5/Sep/06
There didn't seem to be much of a difference with him and Josh Hartnett in Halloween (H2O). I've seen Hartnett listed between 6ft2 and 6ft3, both here and in magazines like People.
Danimal said on 4/Sep/06
Met him at a movie set. I'm 5'10", my actor friend is 6'1" and LL dwarfed me and was visibly taller than my friend by at least 2".
dmeyer said on 4/Sep/06
in person he looks 186 187 cm range in pics he looks smaller bad posture maybe one of my friend is a mesured 185 he was a model and ll was taller than him a littel 6 ft1.5 seems right if he was less he wouldnt claim 6'3 the people that say he is 5'11 is ridiculus since he was about 2 inches on me
Glenn said on 4/Sep/06
In the street LL gave the magic illusion of being several inches over 50.of course this was hours later.enough time to change shoes.
C said on 4/Sep/06
LL looked 2 inches taller than 50 at the VMAs. They were both in sneakers.
Viper652 said on 4/Sep/06
LL wears lifts half the time.
mouldy said on 4/Sep/06
Did anybody watch the MTV VMAs last week? LL was presenting an award with 50 Cent and they were both standing next to each other, and they seemed the same height to me...maybe LL was a little bit taller, but just very little. So if 50 Cent is 6 foot so is LL, or MAYBE 6'1" the very best.
Jason said on 24/Aug/06
Rob, please have a look at this link, it's LL Cool J with The Rock. I would say there's about a 4 inch difference if The Rock stood up straight, either LL is shorter than he claims or The Rock is taller then 6'3. Have a look its picture 97, the link should go straight to it, let us know what you think.

ilyas said on 11/Aug/06
In the movie Edison with Morgan Freeman, LL Cool J has the same height as Morgan Freeman whose height is 6'2 at 1 or 2 cm. So i thinf LL' height is 6ft15 is his real height.
PS: Excuse me for my poor english.
Jason said on 6/Aug/06
This linke should work, LL with The Rock.
Click Here
Jason said on 6/Aug/06
that linked worked for me, u gotta shuffe through a few pictures to find it, and yah LL looks like a mouse compared to the rock, definetly not over 6ft in that pic, however theres another link where hes talking to hugh jackman and he looks maybe an inch taller.

i met him he was wearing 1.4 inches nike high cut so exept if he had 1 inch lift inside i dont think he can be under 186 187 range i am 182 and he had about 4 to 5 cm taller he rarely stands tall thats whi he can give the impresion of being shorter i think he is between 186 and 188

I doubt hes 6-0. Hes been billed at 5-11 to many times in movie media junkets and awards shows no less.
Alex said on 13/Jul/06
I think he may be 6'0 even.
smoke said on 7/Jul/06
Mike did LL give the person a dirty look when he said 5"11 as his height lol.
smoke said on 7/Jul/06
Thank you for that info Mike. It is his build that gives the image that he is taller.6"0 max and no taller. I would say 5"11. Why he is saying 6"3 is beyond me. Maybe he did not hear the question properly lol. Rob you need to take down his height to 5"11. If he looks taller, then he is a world-class lift wearer.
Mike said on 5/Jul/06
When LL Cool J performed the song "Doin it" at the 1996 MTV music awards, the beginning of the performance had someone announce his height and weight. The announcer said "standing at 5'11, 220 pounds." If you watch LL's show In the House, he never looked like he was taller than 6'0
dmeyer said on 29/Jun/06
allthe guys that says he is under 6'1" are since i met him he lokked just over 6'1" and he is similar height with sam jacson and morgan freeman
smoke said on 29/Jun/06
Now people lets be real. LL is 5"11 maybe 6ft max. All this talk about 6"1 or 6"3 is BS. The reason is because look at the 2nd pic on the right with Glenn. Glenn is 5"8 we all know. Now look at LL.

I know he is not standing straight, but do you actually think some one that is 6"1 to 6"3 can look that short when not standing straight???

Rob if you dont stand straight how much does that take of your height do you think? In pic 2 LL looks like he is 5"9(176) We know that is not the case however even if he straighten up you telling me he going to increase in height at like 10-14 centimetres???.
smoke said on 29/Jun/06
Glenn no disrespect but you are 5'8, so if some one that is 5"11 wears trainers or shoes especially with his build they would look like a damn giant. I am 6ft and when I wear trainers I can sometimes look almost the same height as my friend who is 6ft 3 barefoot (Im about 61. 5 in certain trainers max but to the untrained eye I might look over 62 62. 5), especially since he wears flats 95% of the times we are together.
smoke said on 28/Jun/06
Anonymous what kind of footwear were you both wearing please????
Anonymous said on 26/Jun/06
he is like 5'11 i met him on the set of his hush video and i am 5'10 and a female he happened to be just a little bit taller than me w saw eye level and the video shoot took hours i was an extra so there is no way in hell he's 6'3 cmon thats just bs
Glenn said on 26/Jun/06
But he can look between 5-11 and 6-2.he is tricky.last time I saw him 7 months ago he was a giant.
Viper652 said on 26/Jun/06
Then he has to be wearing lifts at times. I was going through wireimage and he dwarfed 50 cent.
smoke said on 26/Jun/06
Thank you Ceejay this is what I have been saying all along. LL is no way over 6ft.
~Nate~ said on 23/May/06
Hmm I'm not sure how much Timbs can increase your height, I dont ever remember them increasing your height from 5'7 to 5'11! I know I'm just over 6ft so like 6ft.5 and when I wear my timbs they give me a good inch and a half so Im nearly 6'2.

[Editor Rob: hmm, there's normally two soles, I have a pair of timberlands with This type of sole - it measures about 1 inch, and gives me 1.1 inch over barefoot height, insole is pretty flat on mine. The larger timberland sole, although I don't have any, looks to me like a 1.3 inch style doc-martin type sole, and unless the insoles of those shoes have huge padding, I doubt you'd get much more than 1.4 inches over your barefoot height...]
J. said on 22/May/06
As an owner of a few pairs of Timberland boots, I don't know them to increase your height by much. A 1.25 inch increase. That's all. So, I find it hard for someone to look multiple inches taller with them on ...but then again, maybe I'm missing something.
Smoke said on 21/May/06
Dmeyer you are wrong. I knew a guy once who calmed he was 5"10-5"11. He would wear timbs like his life depended on it. One day we went to play football and he took of his timbs, I almost had a heart attack lol. The guy was so small. What made it worse for him is he was standing next one guy I know who was the same size barefooted. The guy said hey you are the same height as me. I asked him how tall are you. Guess his answer. 5"7!!!!!! lol.
dmeyer said on 19/May/06
5'11 dosent make sence since he claim 6'3" idf he was 5'11 he would have claim 6'1" no one lies 4 inches when i met him he looked near 6'2" more like 6'1.5"
Smoke said on 19/May/06
Has any one got any pics of LL's footwear plz?!??!?!
smoke said on 18/May/06
hmmmmm so you really believe LL is 6"1.5 then editor???

[Editor Rob: I believe when this guy stands erect, he can look it...whether he has elevator trainers is the question...]

[Editor Rob: all these sites copy height from other site I won't mention...]

I see the pics but we can't see the foot wear these guys have in any of the pics. Jay Z is 6"4 I would agree with that. If Westwood is 6"3 and wore 1 inch to 1.5 inch trainers what would make him taller than Jay Z or about the same. Even if Westwood is 6"4 bare footed, LL would be lucky to get 6ft. Editor your views please.

Let me tell you all something. LL cool J is 5"11 max fact and here are the reasons why:

1. When he stood next to Tim Westwood the DJ he was 3 inches shorter then Westwood. Now unless Tim Westwood is 6"4 or 6"6 there is no way LL cool J is 6"1.5.

2. I have meet Tim West wood and stood next to him. He is 6"2 or 6"3.
I am 6ft 1 and there was not that much difference between us and I was wearing flats.

3. LL wears Timbs. They can put any each 1.5 inches to your actually height. This site measures height barefooted so if you take 1.5 inches Timbs away from LL what magic number do you get?????? 511.

4. The day LL cool J is 61.5 bare footed is the day I see pigs flying and frogs running for office.

How can LL be 6"1.5??? Does that mean I am 6"3 or 6"4. If that is the case Westwood much be 6"7 and the Big Show must me 8ft lol. That is just madness. Editor please comment. If LL did seem to be 61.5 then I would say he had lifts in his shoes and trainers.

I think most of the people on this site who have meet LL are taking the height they see. Now if you took away his footwear you would see the really height of James Todd Smith (LL).

Editor if you have not done so already, put up Westwoods height on this site please ASAP.

[Editor Rob: well the dj fellow is pretty tall. You thought 6ft 2 or 3, he's been described as 6ft 5 several times...

Here he is beside a guy who says he is 6ft 1 and there's some snaps of him With Jizzy JZ

in the pic wear next to each other chaking hands i had very good posture and he was a lidel slouching so we we look the same i'l try to send it
dmeyer said on 15/May/06
yeh i have a pic and we look the same height but i am steel convincred he is 6'1.5" i dontknow whi people say 5'11 they'r crazy he is over 6'1" 186to 187 cm range is a very good guess
Smoke said on 11/May/06
I am sorry I am not buying 6'1.5. LL cool J is 5'11 max end of story. Look at D. Ray Morton pic. I think he may have had lifts in his shoes when you met him. If he was wearing lifts then that would make he 6'1 or more like you said.
dmeyer said on 10/May/06
6'1.5" is a good guess since i am 5'11.5" and he was about 2" on me and we had the same type of shoes

[Editor Rob: hey, I thought you got a picture...did you ever get one with him or near him?]
Viper652 said on 9/May/06
The weird thing is, LL doesnt seem like the type of dude to wear lifts in his shoes.
Smoke said on 8/May/06
You see clearly in that pic LL is about 5"11. I swear Farrell is like 5"9.LL does not look that much taller. Jackson is not even standing properly but he is still like at least 1.5 inches taller and he is 6"2.

[Editor Rob: cool j is another height enigma...maybe he really does wear lifts sometimes in his trainers!]
Viper652 said on 7/May/06
If I had to bet money, Id say he really is 5-11 and wears lifts.
Smoke said on 6/May/06
LL is dreaming on way is he 6"3. 5"11 max. The reason he may look bigger is because of his muscles and the fact he is a big guy. Editor any comments?

[Editor Rob: well, 5ft 11 with big laid back slouch, that seems the only explanation barring 2.5 inch lifts...

With Hugh Jackman who has 1cm shoes that day and also see him tower over anthony anderson.

Sometimes those who wear lifts are surprising, could ll be one??? Although wearing them to a kids carnival...hmm]
Glenn said on 6/May/06
Ive seen him look from 5-11 to 6-2 over a 16 year period.1st rapper to wear lifts?

In a magazine I read it states he is 5"11 no way is this man 6"1.

LL cool J does look 6'1 in that picture He looks the same hieght of my brother who is 6'1 too
Viper652 said on 20/Apr/06
Maybe his 5-11 listing on the internet and from the Swat movie is accurate? Its confusing the hell out of me. Either he is 5-11 or 6-1.

[Editor Rob: I simply think he just slouches in many pics where he looks shorter...just looking at pics where he's standing properly he looks genuine 6ft 1 range....or maybe he's 5ft 11 and carries a box around with him and bribes the photographers to shoot from thighs up! He looked a little taller than Jackman remember (granted he had likely 3cm advantage in shoes), hard to imagine 5ft 11...]
