Hey rob a question, do you think it's possible that the average heights in the uk and u.s. And rest of the world are actually lower than it is because a lot of people tend to lie about their height and give them selfs a couple inches????
[Editor Rob: just from casual observation, in the UK I do feel the average really is in the 5ft 9 range, I can believe the statistics for it, at 5ft 8 it feels that range is average.]

@Tom

Dont take this the wrong way but we are a very healthy nation, i get the impression Canada is not. Cycling is preferred over taking the car places and we eat a diet high in vegetables and fruit. You dont see many fat people here in The Netherlands.

@Emil 182-183 cm

I'm from Denmark myself and I think 5'10.5" is too low. I think 5'11" or 5'11.25" is more like it, at least among the younger generation. In fact, the average height of enlisted full grown men is usually 5'11" on the money.

However, hal is not wrong to say that 6'0" is a very common height in Denmark and that you are considered of rather average height at 6'0". At 6'1" or 6'1.5" people will start to call you tall in Denmark, in my experience.

@hal
Average height in Denmark is 5'10.5 so no
Tom said on 3/Aug/15
Hey rob a question, why are Dutch and Iceland people so tall. I thought food and stuff was a reason. But if so why aren't Canadian people as tall.
[Editor Rob: better Cows...

I think a lot of elements can account for it, the diet, the environment and maybe even a slightly greater preference for taller partners through the last generation?]
Sam said on 28/Jul/15
I doubt he's lost height at his age but yeah the listing is accurate IMO and he is near average for his country.
I admire his version of Hannibal but for two reason, he's too superhuman, I know they want him to be like a fallen angel but I've grown tired of him always having the upper-hand (they didn't even let Will Graham catch him, he just turns himself in to toy with the other characters) and makes wish at times for Hopkins (only in Silence of the Lambs) and Cox in Manhunter who were savage, brilliant monsters but still human. The other is that sometimes I have trouble understanding his lines through his accent.

5'11.75" sounds right. He was probably a 6'0" in his prime. Which, unfortunately, is only average height in his home country. Love him in Hannibal.
Tom said on 5/Jun/15
So do you lose a lot of amount doing so, or just a very little amount?
[Editor Rob: some people are genetically suspectible to more height loss. Look at a guy like Dolph Lundgren who has done a lot of action roles and stunts, he's actually quite a fit man but it seems he's lost over an inch by 50's.]
Tom said on 4/Jun/15
Rob this is a follow up question, if so how much height can be lost. It just doesn't make sense??
[Editor Rob: look at some wrestlers who in 50's and 60's lose more than normal.
Exercise and impact on a smaller scale isn't that bad, loading with weight on limbs is fine, it's excessive weight bearing and loads that can do long term damage. Also some people might be more genetically susceptible to losing bone density and their discs degenerate faster than others.]
Tom said on 4/Jun/15
Hey Rob I wanted to ask you this question, I see you writing on coments saying how actors lose height when they do action flims etc. How can you lose height by being active. It doesn't make sense at all. I thought you said the more active and healthy life style you have the better it is. To keep height. Like moving your back muscles etc??????
[Editor Rob: being active is good, being supple is great.
Overdoing it may cause problems. If you do something long-term, involving physical impacts (like stunts or like wrestlers who are involved in a sport with impacts) then your discs over time may degenerate faster.]

Tom said on 27/Apr/15
So 1.9cm is straight out of bed.
[Editor Rob: around that, from straight out till teatime/evening range.]
Tom said on 23/Apr/15
Hey rob, also how much does a person gain in height straight out of bed usually. And how long does it take threw out the day to get a good measurement of your height without any extra gaining, from laying around.
[Editor Rob: from the research, reading this site and what I know other people shrink, I think nearly 1.9cm is close to the average.]
Tom said on 23/Apr/15
Hey rob, I Also wanted to ask what is the common age when a man stops growing, and also is it still possible on growing when your past 19. Or do you still grow in frame but not actually height. I'm just curious. Wanted to know from the height master big rob.
[Editor Rob: there is potential to still grow till about 21, and in a very small minority even in 21-4 range...but you are talking tiny amount. Most will be done at 18, with a minority still gaining between 18 and 21.]

He like looks 179 cm in here
Judd said on 29/Mar/15
Honest 182 cms guy! 5'11.75" is fair!
Tom said on 26/Nov/14
Rob why do you think people slough is it because my back is weak or something or is it just a habit. Also I'm 19 if I slough when I walk it's okay right. But if I was I was like 30 it would be bad for height loss right.
[Editor Rob: it can be a bad habit, but also weak back muscles or pain/spine problems can lead to it.

Just gentle exercise/stretching every few days can help.]
Tom said on 25/Nov/14
Rob thanks for the help man. So my habit of sloughing is okay if I stop now right.
[Editor Rob: I'd try to correct yourself if you find that you are stooping. As I say, maybe do some very simple stretching, like touching toes, rotating, just to help your back muscles and maybe improving your stance a little.]
Tom said on 24/Nov/14
And rob I'm 19 and I have a bad habit of sloughing over when I walk is that bad for my back or no. I don't think it will effect my back because I'm only 19. If I fix that habit now I should be good hey. And when you mean healthy life style, what do you exactly mean. Like eat healthy and excerise a lot.
[Editor Rob: I'd try to maybe do some simple stretches just to help your back muscles and try to maintain an upright posture as much as possible. These bad habits can cause problems as you age and might contribute to more loss of height.]
Tom said on 24/Nov/14
Thanks rob. Also can't it be a genetics thing as well or no. Is just based on a healthy living style. Also there are people that think stretching helps you to grow, I don't believe that's what's your opinion on that.
[Editor Rob: I think if you are young and want to try to maximise or even say beat what your potential might be, then get active, get your body producing as much GH. Of course as I always say, a combination of exercise/sleeping well/eating and destressing yourself might all be little factors to gaining as much as possible. Stretching could help a bit (how much exactly is always debatable and unknown really), but in all things, be careful and don't overdo things.]
Tom said on 24/Nov/14
Hey rob is there a possibility that mads has shrink because he is 49 now. Also is it possible that some people don't shrink or do you think every one does????
[Editor Rob: some people will make it to 70 and only lose a small fraction. It's a small percentage though and it helps if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and keep your back muscles working and avoid injuries and too much wear and tear. I don't think mads will have lost anything.]
Tom said on 12/Nov/14
Hey rob do people appear to look taller if they are lean and skinny, then being more full and chubby?
[Editor Rob: I think it can help a bit at times, but also a smaller head size always helps aswell.]
Sam said on 31/Oct/14
When standing upright, he looks about 1.5 inches taller than Daniel Craig.

His cheekbones are 6ft tall
InLA said on 9/Oct/14
I watch Valhalla Rising monthly just so I can stare at this guy. He's beautiful. I would have thought a bit taller, but maybe because he's so perfectly proportioned. He looks like someone half his age.
Tom said on 8/Sep/14
Rob can you tell the difference between a person that is 5'11".75 to 6' feet. Isn't it hard to tell because it's so close to one another??????????
[Editor Rob: the 182cm is a height fromover 10 years ago from his agency, it's about what he looked in person aswell, near enough to 6ft.]
cole said on 22/Aug/14
@Editor Rob: Was your listing 6ft before you met him?
[Editor Rob: I think it was on the almost 6ft mark since being added]
Sam said on 24/Jul/14
I guess he was in good shape but you must like a man w/ a missing eyeball...something about his face, there's no way this guy could be anything but European...at any rate, a helluva actor.
LAnative said on 24/Jul/14
He was beautiful in Valhalla Rising. I'd believe 6' from the pics above.
Sam said on 21/Jul/14
He's pretty close to six feet IMO. If he's a sub-six footer as listed, I'd guess Laurence Fishburne is as much as a quarter-inch under that, Fishburne never looked taller IMO and sometimes Mikkelsen seemed to edge him out.
Balrog said on 9/Feb/13
Rob, he looks the full 6'0'' on these pics.
[Editor Rob: to me he looks a good couple cm shorter than a 184 guy looks...]
Hew said on 14/Jan/13
I thought he looked near 10 cm taller than you in that top photo Rob? Did he have a slight footwear-advantage perhaps? 182,5 cm at least for Mads Mikkelsen, good height.
Stephen said on 8/Jan/13
classic 182 cm guy...weak tall...good height to be, girls love 181-185cm range.
Elijah said on 30/Dec/12
@Dolkite: that is just you. Maybe you don't consider him tall but it is definitely tall to the vast majority of people, being around 85th percentile.
Original said on 23/Dec/12
Looks 6' in pics.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Oct/12
Looks 5ft11.25(181cm) in the pics
Connor said on 29/Aug/12
Rob what about 181cm, maybe that is around just above coming into the start of the tall range perhaps?
[Editor Rob: I think 182 is still a good enough fit for him]
Connor said on 26/Aug/12
Yeah Rob Mads definatley does look a weak 6ft especially with Daniel Craig in Casino royale who is a strong 5ft 10, fine example of an 182cm man that would appear like with a 5ft 8 man, 182cm seems dead on accurate for him he has pretty good posture in the left picture, what do you think Rob, maybe 5ft11.75 is classed as tall?
[Editor Rob: yes he's getting into start of tall range]
Rikashiku said on 13/Jun/12
Most girls aren't exactly tall Dolkite ;).

He looks like a weak 6'0" which is surprising because in the movies he always looks like the tall mean fighter. Does this guy ever smile?
Dolkite said on 31/Jan/12
Just under six feet tall isn't what I'd call "tall."
