hahhahaha I'd never say he's 6'2 looking at this pic, I'd say Rogen is shorter only LoL but as I said before, the pic is not good. I only got the impression that Michael is taller. If Rogen is 1,78m it could confirm his height as 1,80m.
Tim1.79 says on 4/Feb/15
Man, your evidence photos are just... If I wouldn't know Michael's height, then I would think he's something like 6'2" on pic with Rogen. I mean, seriously ? The ground is not even and Michael got shoes advantage. It's pretty obvious that he just can't be that much taller than Rogen.
rockitbaby says on 2/Feb/15
How tall is Seth Rogen? Michael looks slightly taller than him. I know they're not in the same ground exactly but even so Rogen is clearly shorter.

That instagram random is being too kind. lol No, Jean-Luc, he's just your height if even fully that.
@rockitbaby says on 29/Jan/15
I don't think Michael is 1,78 AT ALL. He's at least 1,80m. Next to Brad Pitt, who is around 6'0, he's slightly shorter. Michael is as tall as Dicaprio, 1,80m, 1,81m tops.
Joe says on 29/Jan/15
5'10" seems to be his correct height, I do not think he is 5'11" nor is he is full 6 feet. He was claimed to be 6'1' when X-men First Class was released in 2011. To get an actor's true height you have to subtract by two inches, so you have take their official height and subtract by two for most of them, a few fib by an inch, only a handful are honest, and few will just round off their heights like Henry Cavill who is 6'0.5" and says 6'1" because its just easier to say.
@rockitbaby says on 28/Jan/15
This guy just commented on Instagram that Michael is around 6'. He said:

"His 6' self is slouching and my 5'11" ness is puffed and floating a bit".

a trick that this one guy from New York is known for...]
marcus says on 19/Jan/15
he's a solid 5'11, a good 180cm, any 5'11 guy can pull off 6 just like him, but he's not 5'10, no, rob is spot on here
rockitbaby says on 22/Dec/14
Today his new data on IMDB is 1,83, which for me is totally exagerated. On the other hand, no way he's just 1,78m. Seeing him next to McAvoy, who is 1,70m, he looks at least 10cm taller.
Fox says on 19/Dec/14
Guys and girls, no way... 183 cm? Come on. 178 max. Do you remember his past data on IMDB? It told us 178. So, this is a point.
rockitbaby says on 1/Dec/14
For me he's a 1,81m guy. 1,80m in the evening =)
Dmeyer says on 30/Nov/14
With mr r he looks 179.5cm no more so 10.75
rockitbaby says on 23/Nov/14
Great pic! But Michael is bending a little bit and James is clearly lifting. but their difference seems to be around 10cm or 11cm.

@Jow 6'1??? OMG, Michael is never 1,85m. I don't think he's 1,78m neither, he's like 1,81m or 1,82m.
Joe says on 18/Nov/14
I think Fassbender is about 5-10, when X-men First Class came out three years ago it was claimed that he was 6-1. Really exaggerated that height as he is not close.
Heights of actors are hard to get accurate since they are never measured like athletes and most of them give their heights in shoes.
rockitbaby says on 7/Nov/14
He's nothing shorter than 1,80. He's almost as height as Cumberbatch, who's 1,83. Michael is 1,82 or 1,81m.
Dean says on 6/Nov/14
I used to see 5'10 for him but to me he does look 5'11 max.
184.3cm says on 6/Nov/14
He is nowhere near being a 6 footer. Look at the photo with Mr R who is listed on user heights at 5'11.5. Michael is an inch shorter so he is this listing at best. Id put him 179-180cm a weak 5'11.
Arch Stanton says on 4/Nov/14
You could change to simply X-Men films to free up some space!
Arch Stanton says on 4/Nov/14
Rob can you add a photo and films like Shame and Hunger? Personally I think of Shame as his most prominent role.
rockitbaby says on 3/Nov/14
Isn't Leo DiCaprio 1,80m? Michael looks to be quite his height or even slightly taller. And next to Cumberbatch, who's 1,83m, he looks just a little bit shorter.

Tim says on 3/Nov/14
Totally agree with you Nick. Shoes definitely can do some tricks, especially when person is interested in to look taller. But I don't consider Michael to be a lift guy or something. I just see him as a strong 5-10, he is looking that tall proportionally, just like Brad Pitt, but second is famous lift shoes lover. So yeah, being full 5-11 for these guys is questionable, but strong 5-10 is most likely.
rockitbaby says on 1/Nov/14
Michael doesn't look shorter than 1,80m. In my view, he's 1,82m.
Nick says on 31/Oct/14
The photos of celebrities next to each other are very dubious because they are all wearing shoes, and many famous people often wear lifts to make them appear an inch or two taller. There are many well known life wearers in Hollywood, in particular Sylvester Stallone, who by most estimates is 5'7" barefoot.
Many celebrities also tend to list their height in shoes or exaggerate by an inch or two.
I do not think Fassbender is taller than 178cm max. Camera angles and surfaces also throw things off. If you have an adequate camera shot on a flat surface maybe you could get a better idea of a celebrities height. But my most educated guess for Fassbender is 5'10" nothing more, maybe a bit less.
rockitbaby says on 27/Oct/14
How tall is Evan Peters? I've read he's like 1,76m, 1,77m...Michael seems to be clearly taller than 1,80m in X-Men.

evil says on 1/Oct/14
i think that fassbender is not under 182cm
rockitbaby says on 30/Sep/14
@Tim I mentioned Leo because there are pictures of them together. Yes, Bradley is taller than Michael, it's quite clear but not more than 5cm. And a lot of people claim that Bradley is actually taller than 1,84m. And 1,70m women who wear 10cm or 12cm hills are usually taller than man who are 1,78m. Unless they use hills too. In this pic Keira is wearing huge hills and Michael is wearing slippers and he's still slightly taller.

Tim says on 29/Sep/14
rockitbaby, I dont really care about Leo's height, all i can see is that 184 Cooper solidly taller than Michael, end of story... And 178-179 guy still can be taller than 170 women in hills.
rockitbaby says on 28/Sep/14
@Tim 5cm? I don't think so...Michael is as tall or slightly taller than Leo DiCaprio, who is 5'11. If there is indeed 5cm in that pic then Bradley is taller than 1,84m because next to 5'7 women wearing high heels Michael manages to be taller...No way he's shorter than 1,80m.
Tim says on 26/Sep/14
Man, 5 cm difference easily on that pic with Cooper...
rockitbaby says on 24/Sep/14
If Bradley Cooper is 1,84m, theh Michael is above 1,80m, maybe 1,81m. He also looks slightly taller than Leo DiCaprio, who is 1,80m.

Johnny Depp is not 5'9. Amber Heard is 1,73m I think and wearing high heels she's as height as him or just a little bit taller. No way he's only 1,75m. Depp is probably 1,77m or 1,78m. Michael and Leo are probably the same height.
Sam says on 22/Sep/14
Hmm, I don't quite seem them the same height there, DiCaprio looks about an inch more IMO than Depp and I'm not sure whether DiCaprio was 100% fully grown at that point. Also, Johnny's listed as 5'9", not 5'10".
rockitbaby says on 18/Sep/14
@Sam I think they're both 1,80m. And DiCaprio too. I just find it weird that Johnny Depp is listed as 5'10 but next to Leo he's the same height.

Click Here
Sam says on 18/Sep/14
Yeah, I think both Fassbender and Pitt are in the range of 179-180 cm tall. I think DiCaprio can pass for 181 cm at times but yeah, all these guys are similar range. It's just, unlike Fassbender and DiCaprio, Pitt does seem to pop on a little extra in his footwear at times. Barefoot w/ Paltrow, he could seem 5'10"ish then suddenly look near 2 inches taller than George Clooney in Ocean's 11 or a bit taller than six foot Eli Roth in Inglourious Basterds.
rockitbaby says on 15/Sep/14
@Sam How much do you give to Pitt? 1,80m? I found a picture of him next to Leo Diaprio and they're pretty much the same height:

Click Here
Sam says on 15/Sep/14
There's a lot of photos w/ Fassbender and Pitt since they've done 3 movies together and they really do look quite close IMO. If Pitt looks taller at times, I think it's because of extra heel.
rockitbaby says on 14/Sep/14
@Tim hahaha but we should consider his height with a nice posture. I think that Michael is around 1,82m when he wakes up and is with a perfect posture. But in the end of the day and walking with a worse posture he's probably 1,80m.

Check out this picture. Keira is probably with 10cm high heels and she's as tall as Michael or slightly shorter, and he's wearing flipflops:

And this picture with Marion Cotillard, who is 5'6. I can see a 10cm difference or more.

Tim says on 14/Sep/14
@ rockitbaby, Well, Benedict is tallest from all 3, and even he is not full 6-0 , more like 1.82 imo.. And i can see 2-3 cm difference between him and Fassbender. But anyways, for some reason Fassbender look 178-179 to me, I don't know, maybe its because Im that tall myself lol. I also believe that Michael is a very good example of great posture which can make him look taller 1-1.5 inches :)
rockitbaby says on 13/Sep/14
@Xabier But Pitt, in my view, is around 6'0 and Michael is slightly shorter. The same with Benedict. It's impossible for Michael to be less than 1,80m. At least for me ;)

Click Here
Xabier says on 11/Sep/14
He definitely is slightly shorter than Benedict Cumberbatch but I still think that he might be closer to 179 cm rather than being 180cm.
To me he just doesn't look like a full 5'11" guy. Pitt does instead, and you can see the difference between he and Pitt in that particular scene of the movie.
rockitbaby says on 5/Sep/14
@Xabier He's slighly shorter than Benedict Cumberbatch, who is listed as a 6'0. He's around 1,82 or 1,81m. Unless Benedict is shorter than that...

Click Here
Xabier says on 4/Sep/14
There's a scene in 12 Years a Slave where he and Brad Pitt stand on even ground and you can clearly see that although they look very close in height, Pitt is still slightly taller than him so I would put him at 179cm. I think it could be dead on.
Have you had the chance to see the movie Rob? It's really good.
movies says on 29/Aug/14
He's shorter than barely 6 foot Jimmy Fallon even though Fassbender's IMDb profile claims 6 ft. 5' 11" seems to be correct.
rockitbaby says on 20/Aug/14
@cole heights are complicated. Sometimes they look something and then they look taller or shorter. But seeing Michael still taller than 5'7 Keira Knightley wearing huge heels while he's wearing slippers...he seems to be around 6'0 =)

cole says on 19/Aug/14
@rockitbaby: That's fair enough ;) I just don't think any of those pictures you posted could be used to argue if they are the same height or not. I for one haven't seen any shots of them worth mentioning. Having said that though, they could be very similar.
rockitbaby says on 16/Aug/14
@cole we have to be based on something. A lot of sources say that Leo DiCaprio is 6'0 and Michael is as tall as him. But if Leo is 5'11 than Michael is 5'11 too, we'll never know. You believe in what you want and I believe in what I want ;)
cole says on 15/Aug/14
@rockitbaby: Everyobody's a 6 footer eh?

@ tim Yes, I find it weird that sometimes they're the same heigh too. Or Chiwetel is higher than Michael. But in this picture I sent, there is another one that apparently shows them with the same kind of shoes. Then, I found another one of them at the Oscars, which shows Michael a little bit taller.

Tim says on 3/Aug/14
@ rockitbaby, More looks like all of them are in same height category 5-10 to 5-11, and the difference in height between them depends on shoes. I can find pictures where Chiwetel will be taller than Michael, isn't that strange if Michael is 6-0 like you said?
rockitbaby says on 3/Aug/14
Guys, Steve McQueen is as height as Michael and Brad Pitt and they are all 6'0. Look this picture of them next to 5'10 Chiwetel Ejiofor. No way Michael is only 1,78m.

Click Here
Sam says on 24/Jul/14
I don't know that Steve McQueen has a published height, wouldn't count on it if you got it from that certain movie site. McQueen can look 5'10"ish at times, near 5'11" at others.
Tim says on 23/Jul/14
There is a lot of pictures with him standing next to 177-178 ( 5-10 ) Steve McQueen, and they are exactly same height mostly. I think that Fassbender is a strong 5-10 or could be 5-10.5. He has a great posture so yeah with proper shoes can look up to 6-0.
Dave618 says on 20/Jul/14
Just saw Fassbender dancing with Jackman on a talk show, then they slowed down and stood quite close. Really, a 1 or 2 inch difference is all I saw, if that. If Fassbender is a legit 5'11'', which he looks to be, Jackman is probably between 6'1" and 2".
rockitbaby says on 11/Jul/14
No way he's only 1,78m. He's like 6'0. He's as height as Benedict Cumberbatch and Leonardo DiCaprio.

More Fassbender vs McAvoy:

Click Here
McAvoy looks to have a decent footwear advantage here. Not exactly the first time one would suspect he's wearing a lift. In equal footwear Fassbender would surely be about 4 inches taller.

@Sam: In that one shot it looks more like a 2.5in difference, and Fassbender is standing a little closer to the camera as well. But personally I don't think Jackman would measure a full 6'2. Nearer 6'1.5 is likely for him.
jon says on 7/Jun/14
Every other website but this one lists him as 6'0. But for once, I actually agree with the people saying he isn't a legit 6'0. He does not look like a 6-footer. I don't get why so many men who are 5'10 or 5'11 claim to be 6'0. 6'0 is not an impressive height. It's probably the most boring and annoying height out there. You're constantly asking yourself "Am I tall, or am I just average?". I'm hoping that I haven't stopped growing and reach 6'1 soon, but I kinda doubt it. If I didn't hate lying, I'd tell people I'm 5'11.
Sam says on 29/May/14
Believable 3 inch difference with Hugh Jackman.

Hey Rob, maybe it's time to add some more movies to his list such as Prometheus, 12 Years a Slave (Oscar nom) and X-Men: Days of Future Past
Anon says on 15/May/14
In Byron Ts pics he is an easy 5'11". Patrick Stewart in loafers is a solid 5'9", to me.
Realist says on 14/May/14
Woah Booboo Stewart has grown since Twilight. Rob i think he needs to be upgraded to about 170-71. This shows u can grow a little after 18.
Byron T. says on 11/May/14
He's still taller than a 5'7'' James McAvoy with a footwear advantage (who's been long rumored to be a lift wearer) and a 5'8'' Patrick Stewart (who's not wearing his trademark cowboy boots for once) at the NYC ''X-Men Days of Future Past'' premiere.

His 5'11'' listing on the website isn't outrageous, as he often looks close to it.
littlesue says on 10/May/14
If you google hime with Cumberbatch that look virtually same height
Realist says on 10/May/14
@Big B all the way with you man. Have you seen him with McAvoy. Rob himself agrees McAvoy can sometimes look 171. So this guy cant be more than 178. 179 maybe. 177-178 most likely. So a good 5'10. The rest of the X-Men cast:
James McAvoy: 5'7-5'7.25 so 170-171.00
Nicholas Hoult: 191 cm (i am sure he is only about 1/2 an inch shorter than Liam Hemsworth)
Hugh Jackman: 186-187 solid 6'1
Patrick Stewart: 172-173
Ian Mckellan: Same as Fassbender
Jennifer Lawrence: 169-170 less than McAvoy
Lucas Till: 174-175 touching 5'9 (Rob agrees i think)
Halle Berry: 5'5-5'6
Ellen Page : Barely 5'1
Shawn Ashemore: Solid 5'11 (180-181)
Anna Paquin: 163-164 solid 5'4
MD says on 23/Apr/14
He is not that short. I stick by my 179 cm estimate. He's just a bit under 5'11".
littlesue says on 22/Apr/14
Lol, Fassy in lifts!! unless he had to for a film there is no way he wears them, he usually wearing loafers or flip flops when he is casual
Big B says on 21/Apr/14
He's between 5'9 1/2 and 5'10 without the lifts.
littlesue says on 4/Apr/14
Sam that movie site had him at 5ft 11 for a few years, someone obviously sent them something to make them change it
Sam says on 3/Apr/14
A certain movie website amusingly has him at 6'1". He might hit that if he decides to wear lifts, but that's unlikely.
bukowski says on 2/Apr/14
Rob my out of bed height is 5ft 10.5, then by the night time I have dropped to about 5ft 9.75, is it fair for me to average it out and say im a flat 5ft 10?
I always thought Fassbender was a solid 6ft, but the more I seem to pay attention to his height in films the lower he looks. The guy has amazing posture though which makes anybody look taller. I wouldnt say he was anything under 5ft 10.75 though
jess says on 1/Apr/14
I don't know why someone would list him as 6' 1" on imdb. A lot of people post inaccurate information on that site. He looks 5' 11, but maybe 5' 10.5".
cole says on 28/Feb/14
@Editor Rob: Have you seen enough to take Fassbender down to 5'10.75, or do you still think he could be a solid 5'11?
[Editor Rob: it is perfectly arguable anywhere from 5ft 10.5-11 I think for him, at the moment I'd say 5ft 11 is ok, yeah he could dip a fraction shy though.]
the shredder says on 22/Feb/14
Hill can be 5'7 .

I do think Fassbender and Pitt are pretty close to one another in height.

MF had on a pair of funky boots, and I had on loafer shoes. Accounting for my hat and his hair, 5-10.75 is good.

if fassbender is 5 ft 11 is hard to see brad under

Actualy if He has more and looking at eye level 5'10.5-10.75 Is possible
dmeyer says on 26/Jan/14
From the pics He looks about as tall as 5'11.5 mr r , mr r seems to have better posture if i didnt know mr r height i would have sais Michael was easy as tall
Mr. R says on 26/Jan/14
HEY! Did you all see my pic with Michael Fassbender? Come on guys. I worked hard to get that pic! lol
[Editor Rob: yes, it was good to see you finally show a picture.]
The Horse of FUNK says on 25/Jan/14
Picture looks fine to me, though the hat is kind of in the way. Anyway, if Mr. R is 5'11.5", then Fassbender looks a solid 5'11" in that pic. Going by eye level, Mr. R has an ever so slight advantage over him. Who knows what the story of footwear and posture are.

All in all, I think it's safe to say Rob's listing is a safe listing. Fassbender is definitely in the 5'11" neighborhood, give or take a cm. He ain't 6'0.75", nor is he 5'9". If people start arguing over the most accurate cm, then Fassbender's height will become a science of its own, like the Brad Pitt and Stallone pages here.
MD says on 25/Jan/14
@Mr. R, really, I wasn't trying to be a jerk, or anything, but that picture actually doesn't make your point of being under 5'11". It seems to confirm the current listing, instead, even though it's clear from other pictures that he's not quite a full 5'11".
Mr. R says on 23/Jan/14
@ MD Sorry to disappoint you. I made sure that MF and I were on level ground and that I stood as tall as possible. Actually, HE was the one doing the leaning. Based on my pic, I say that MF is 5-10.75, closer 179 as you suggest.
Mr. R says on 23/Jan/14
How cool! I made celebrityheights!

Rob, does this make me a celebrity?
[Editor Rob: a long long way to go R ;)]
Arch Stanton says on 23/Jan/14
Doesn't really look under 5'11, but I really thought Brad Pitt looked an inch or so taller in 12 years. Agreed that he's seems a thoroughly decent guy and is likeable.
MD says on 23/Jan/14
I'm kind of disappointed. I was expecting a picture from which to better judge height from. It looks like Mr R may be slightly twisted, and thus losing a tiny bit or height, but the picture is off-kilter a bit, so there is no way to judge much from this beyond the fact that he's at least close to this current listing.

I'm still saying he's 179 cm, though, from all the other pictures I've seen.
Editor Rob says on 23/Jan/14
Here is the photo Mr R sent
Click Here
Michael may have fraction more footwear?
MD says on 21/Jan/14
I really do think that 179 cm would be a better listing. He is just ever-so-slightly under 5'11".
Sam says on 20/Jan/14
Fassbender has a lean build that can make him seem lanky but this goes away when he stands next to other men or tall women. Rob's listing seems right, he might be a fraction under 5'11" for the better part of the day though.
cole says on 17/Jan/14
@The Horse of Funk: I'm not surprised they've put him at 185 cm to be honest, they even had Timberlake at 186 cm for a while... Can't trust them as any user can edit the height-listing. He's always struck me as a 5'10.5 - 5'11 zone guy, the former he has appeared more often recently imo.
Mr. R says on 17/Jan/14
@ The Horse of Funk Yeah, when I cam home Saturday, I checked that internet movie site, and laughed for a long time at the 6-0.75. Pure comedy.
The Horse of FUNK says on 16/Jan/14
Mr. R is probably right. I've always suspected him to be about 5'11". I had to check his page here after just seeing his listing on the internet movie site. They have him at 6'0.75". After seeing the candid photos of him with Chris Pine, there is no way in hell he is 6'0.75".
Mr. R says on 16/Jan/14
By the way, Michael hung out with us after the screening for at least ten minutes and was very cool. An extremely nice and fun dude. He is approaching Clooney for my " coolest man in Hollywood" crown. I will download my pic and send it to Rob.
Mr. R says on 12/Jan/14
I just met Michael at a screening at Fox Studios. I was stunned. He was almost looking me straight in the eye! I am 5-11.5 and he was closer than I suspected. He was wearing boots with a little more heel than my loafer dress shoes. He is pretty close to 5-11. Rob, I will send the pic.
Arch Stanton says on 11/Jan/14
LOL @ 5'9.5, more chance of 6ft!
truth says on 8/Jan/14
176-177cm ???? Jesus christ. I think 179-180cm, this height or a few fractions shorter. 5ft10.25 at worst.
little sue says on 6/Jan/14
No way 5ft 9.5, thats a bit laughable!! No much under 5ft 11.
Realist says on 6/Jan/14
1.83 m is a joke. This guy is 177-178. Carey Mulligan is no more than 1.67-1.68 she wears huge heals, downgrade them rob.

You going to add any kind of evidence, Vibram beyond "5ft9.5"? I mean, the least you could do is add a sentence of explanation.

He is extremelly fit and proportional 5-10.5, and he can look up to 6-1 from distance.

Nia says on 24/Dec/13
I met him. 5'9"
cole says on 18/Dec/13
I wouldn't go under 5'10.5 though. Anywhere in the 5'10.5 - 5'11 zone is justifiable.
Emily says on 9/Dec/13
Does he have a close-to-10 inch head? It looks big, but it's quite square-y too, so maybe that adds a little optically.
[Editor Rob: wouldn't have said a big 10 inches]
Jem says on 6/Dec/13
I thought Fassbender looked close to the same height as Brad Pitt, maybe a bit shorter. Could be 5'11" max and might even be 5'10.5".

Looks a bit shorter than Brad Pitt in the Counselor. Brad Pitt wears pretty thick boots in the movie. Anyway, to me he doesn't look, but strong to upper average. 5-11 max but probably 5-10.25.

Len says: A 5'10.5" guy who tries to claim 6'0" elsewhere. Standard Hollywood practice.
Most men add a few inches to there height, not just in Hollywood. Standard male practice.

But I have to agree I see him as 179cm/5f10.5 rather then a full 5f11.
cole says on 20/Nov/13
He does look shorter than Javier Bardem who I can't see over 5'11.25, so maybe Fassbender's more in the 5'10.5 range, Rob?
JonDaMon says on 17/Nov/13
i think Fassbender's deserves a higher listing than 5'11, to be fair. He looks quite tall. Pushing 6 foot.
Yves says on 9/Nov/13
6'0 for sure.
Silent d says on 21/Oct/13
It'll be interesting to see him in the counselor when he stands with a guy who claims he's 180cm brad pitt. There is also 172cm cameron diaz in it. Could be interesting. 180cm.
JJ says on 18/Oct/13
181-182 I think.
Mr. R says on 18/Oct/13
I just saw 12 Years A Slave, and MF walks around a lot barefoot. He and BP only share a few scenes, but in one they are standing facing each other both in boots. BP is clearly taller. MF is a little under 5-10.
Lorne says on 17/Oct/13
Well, he has two upcoming films with BP, so we'll get the chance to compare. But I do think Fassbender is legit 180cm, that's what he looks standing tall, see him with Mcavoy, who is 170cm but has lifts to look 171-172, he looks 5'11 and with. 171cm range Hennifer Lawrence, if she's a real 5'7.5 then Fassbender looks 5'11, I've seen him looking 179 range as Rob says, but generally I think he looks 5'11 w posture, 5ft10.75-5ft11, 179.5-180, 180.5 possible, him and Putt would be identical IMO.
Silent d says on 16/Oct/13
I watched shame and he looked 180cm next to his sister in the movie carey mulligan who is 169cm. Great actor.
MD says on 11/Oct/13
With Javier Bardem, whose listed height here I slightly doubt:

He's not quite 5'11". He honestly strikes me as a 5'10.5" guy who can look taller because of his narrow build.
Lilley says on 5/Oct/13
I've met Michael Fassbender and he was at least 3 inches taller than me and I'm just 5'9".
Len says on 19/Sep/13
A 5'10.5" guy who tries to claim 6'0" elsewhere.

Standard Hollywood practice.
Byron T. says on 18/Sep/13
@ The Garage: No worries. I just didn't believe that Michael Fassbender could be as short as 5'9'' based on previous photo evidence. As for Ian McKellen, I think he's no less than 5'10'' at age 74. 10 years ago, he stood pretty tall next to a 5'11'' listed Rebecca Romijn (in heels) at the X2: X-Men United premiere: Click Here
TheGarage says on 17/Sep/13
@ Byron T: Hi. I've closely checked my photos with Michael Fassbender after being shocked by your photo (I always thought Ian McKellan was really tall, but maybe that was Gandalf). If he stood up straight instead of slouching then I could see that Michael would be taller than I said previously. I'm not afraid to admit when I'm wrong. He'd be more like 5'10 - 5'10.5. Apologies for the earlier estimate - I was possibly still in the meeting's afterglow.
Byron T. says on 15/Sep/13
@ TheGarage: Are your sure that Michael Fassbender is only 5'9?'' Despite the angle of the camera and the footwear advantage of his other X-Men co-stars, he's still tallest one in this photo: Click Here
Jones says on 13/Sep/13
I don't understand why people ask who's taller when they can see that they're listed at the same height. It is possible for two people to be exact same ya know
TheGarage says on 25/Aug/13
I met Michael Fassbender in a restaurant two days ago. I got my photo taken with him. Lovely approachable man. I'm 5'9" & I'd say he's the same height as me at the very most.
Sam says on 13/Aug/13
With Brad Pitt, they do look about the same, Pitt and Fassbender. Pitt often has higher footwear and Fassbender has looser posture, so their might be a Fassbender advantage but may be not even 1 cm.

Balrog says on 11/Aug/13
He looks 5'10.5" with McAvoy and also with Hoult but other times looks the full 5'11" maybe 5'10 " is spot on?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Aug/13
Rob, who'd be taller this guy or Brad Pitt?
[Editor Rob: I think it'd be hard to call it.

There is a shout that fassbender is 179cm range...he can look that ]
cole says on 31/Jul/13
Okay, I have seen a bit more of him now. And I would categorically rule out anything under 5'10.5 for Michael. 5'11 range is fine.
MaskDeMasque says on 26/Jul/13
5'10.5, maybe 5'10.75.
Byron T. says on 20/Jul/13
I still think Fassbender is 5'11.'' He sure looks it next to a legit 5'10'' Bryan Singer and a 5'7'' James McAvoy:

Len says on 29/Jun/13
Looks 5'10.5". Not a real tall guy, but is lean and has presence, which sometimes makes him seem a bit taller.

The claims of 6'0" for him are funny... typical Hollywood fibbing.
cole says on 26/Jun/13
He looks around the 5'11 mark, but when you look at guys like David Giuntoli, who might very well be in the 5'10-11 range as well, he can seem in the same range. I'm just going to split it in half and call Micaehl a 5'10.5 guy. Not saying I'm completely ruling out 5'11, it's just that, to me, he sometimes looks a tad shorter.
Ron says on 9/Jun/13
A very lean 5'10. Great actor.
groundhogphil says on 9/Jun/13
At the Canadian Grand Prix he looked about an inch taller than Eddie Jordan which would make him around 5'6".
Dirty Pitts says on 6/Jun/13
In X-men First Class and in red carpet photos Fassbender looks the same height as Kevin Bacon, who's listed as 5'10" on this site. I think 5'10.5" is probably more accurate for Fassbender.
Balrog says on 2/Jun/13
In X Men First Class the guy who plays Banshee is listed 5'11'' and Fassbender looked exactly same height has him.
Robert Gray says on 29/Apr/13
@Byron: Touche. That is a challenging pic. He still seems to me like a hair under 5'11 though, just appears taller due to his skinny frame. He looked pretty average to me in X-Men: First Class and Inglorious Basterds but then seems taller in films like Shame and Prometheus. I'll settle with 5'10.5
Byron T. says on 28/Apr/13
@Robert: I don't think he's shorter than Logan Marshall-Green, it's just the angle of the photo taken.

Click Here

In this photo, both Fassbender and Marshall-Green are wearing flat shoes, but Marshall-Green is hunched over a bit. Also, he still towers over a 5'4'' Noomi Rapace who's wearing heels. I'd say that Fassbender is still 5'11'' as listed.
Robert Gray says on 21/Apr/13
Click Here

Here he looks shorter than 5'11 listed Logan Marshall-Green and only a smidge taller than 5'4 listed Noomi Rapace (most likely with 5-6 inch heels)

Gonna go with 5'10
space balls says on 8/Apr/13
strong 5'11'' for sure.i'd say he could be even 1.81-82 cm.
leonari says on 27/Mar/13
Possible 181. N Way under 5'11
Arch Stanton says on 21/Mar/13
He can actually give off a taller impression at times.
Giles Du Croix says on 15/Mar/13
The female lead in Fishtank is indeed quite tall (and talented). 5' 11" is spot on here.
little sue says on 4/Feb/13
The girl in Fish Tank must be around 5ft 9. I would say easily 5ft 11.
klem says on 21/Jan/13
He looks shorter in fish tank(2009). In Shame, he looks taller.

I think this guy is more like 178 cm but he could be true 180 cm.
jasperwazup says on 20/Jan/13
he has a masculine forehead just saying. he looks 181cm.
little sue says on 13/Jan/13
I can't see him being under 5ft 11 myself, although his slim, muscley build make him look tall.
Trey says on 12/Jan/13
Yeah, 5'11 Mortensen has a little edge on him, 5'10.5 is fair for Michael.
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm says on 20/Dec/12
One of the best actors around.
5'11 is right.
Silent d says on 28/Oct/12
5 foot 11.
Sam says on 22/Oct/12
He and Viggo Mortensen look pretty much the same height, though Mortensen may have a slight edge:

Scott says on 15/Oct/12
Yes, I'd have said 5'11 in inglorious ****s.
Woland says on 16/Sep/12
Looks 5'11 next to Gina Carano in Haywire.
little sue says on 9/Sep/12
He looks a good 5 inches taller than Mike Myers in Inglorious Basterds, I would say 5ft 11 + perfect looking specimen!!
BigT says on 27/Jul/12
Hes 177-179 cm range, getting away with claiming 6ft because of his slim figure and great posture. In the right footwear hell probably hit 6ft.
Scott says on 24/Jul/12
Looked 5'10.5 in inglorious. Not quite this '6 foot' claimed.
D says on 13/Feb/12
Click Here Poor posture examples but in a similar height range so 5'11" is possible. He's super skinny so the height to width ratio gives the impression he's over 6ft
Sam says on 25/Jan/12
This article claims "6 foot" for Fassbender. Not quite...:

SIlent d says on 24/Jan/12
Carey mulligan is 5 foot 6.5. 180cm for michael even though i thought he was closer to 6 foot.
Bella says on 22/Jan/12
Look here for a recent picture of him standing next to Carey Mulligan. Even with heels, they look almost same height. Mulligan can't be that tall.
