Misha Collins Height
5ft 11in (180 cm)
American actor best known for playing Castiel on tv series Supernatural. This photo was at Collectormania in London, 2009. On a Zap2it.com interview he said "fans usually think that I'm short. I'm actually six feet tall, but when I'm being filmed next to Jared Padalecki, who's 6'6" or something, I look like a tiny wood-elf."

He looks to be 5'11.5 to me, are you sure you're not 5'9 Rob? The imperial measurements are very inaccurate, try measuring using metric, it's accurate down to the centimetre. I measure 6ft flat barefoot, but that was about three years ago, I've gotten a bit taller since then.

Hey Rob. Would you say both of you were standing straight in this photo? Judging by the measurement markers Misha Collins hair is barely over the 5'11 mark. And because his hair is spiky I would think the top of his head would be between 178-179 cm. I see 179 cm tops for him but I would agree with 180 if he wasn't standing at his straightest. I'd love to hear your feedback when you get a chance. Thanks!
Editor Rob: yes I was standing fine, but at worst he would be a little fraction under 5ft 11...I thought near enough to the mark though.

Not more than 5'10 i see here
Sam said on 30/Jun/16
He probably measures half a cm below 180cm but above 179cm at his low.
Omid said on 28/Jun/16
Rob obviously you're the expert here but I have this experience that always influences my height guesstimates, I'm 5'10.5 (around 178.5 to 179.5), I have a thick body, Broad Shoulders, not a lot of neck, not a lot of leg and you could say bigger than average head, now I have a brother too who had (I say had cause he's grown taller now) longer legs, slimmer body , more neck and smaller head, also my hair falls down while his goes up.
When we were seen together or alone, 90 percent of the people who I asked told me he was the taller one, even I used to think he has to be like a half cm taller, even rigt next to each other and infront of the mirror not only others still saw him to be taller, I myself thought that too..in front of a mirror.
Until one day I decided to do a little experiment, we stood in front of a big mirror and I placed a long piece of cardboard box on top of our both heads, one end of it on mine, the other on his.
To everybody's shock I ended up being slightly, like barely a half cm taller, since then I always look at the body proportions before making a guess, then I'd add or subtract up to 2 cms to or from the person's guessed height and that usually ends up being on dot or close to the actual height.
That's why I say I think Collins is shorter, he has a good deal of these little things that make him look tall, with all of them he looks 5'11 onscreen, whereas I think he should've looked taller than 5'11 with all these stuff IF he was 5'11 without them.
Roy said on 23/Jun/16
I estimate he's between 5'10.5 and 5'11 so the listing is good until he agrees to be measured on Conan.
truth said on 23/Jun/16
@markus Compared to Rob he looks around the 180 cm mark or 5'10.75 - 5'11. You don't know what the hell are you talking about, right?
said on 23/Jun/16
Rob do you see any chance on him being 179?
I feel like he's one of those guys who might look taller than they actually are, I mean the tall forehead, slim body, long neck and the hair....
Editor Rob: I wouldn't bet on only 179cm...I feel he is taller, but then anybody can get a shock when it comes to measuring, sometimes a person could end up taller or shorter than most of us expect.
markus said on 20/Jun/16
between 176cm and 178cm
above that is an exageration for a man who is much shorter than 6ft jensen ackles
Francis said on 14/Jun/16
when do we tell rob that the 5'11 mark is on the top of his spiky hair and not the top of his head?
misha collins is 5'10/5'9.5
175.5 cm said on 13/Jun/16
he is 179cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jun/16
How likely is 181cm Rob?
said on 4/Jun/16
Rob, the black guy in this clip actually claimed 6' on Twitter but he clearly doesn't look any taller than Misha: Click Here
Actually he can look a bit shorter in certain parts but i don't know if he'd be just 5'10 or 5'11... I'd definitely rule out 6', though...
The other guy might be near 6'2?
In the meanwhile, enjoy Misha's coreography :)
Editor Rob: he certainly isn't taller than Misha (unless he had bigger footwear which wasn't obvious), so he is probably claiming a boot height.
Aza said on 11/May/16
said on 22/Apr/16
Rob is he dropping any height in this picture?
Editor Rob: I felt he was pretty static, I didn't think he moved much.
lak said on 11/Apr/16
I guess he just said 6 feet tall as in 'you know, I'm not 4 feet tall as I look when I'm with Jared Padalecki' he just meant that he's not really short.... I think 1.80 looks about right (maybe even a couple of cms more)
184.3cm (Night) said on 29/Mar/16
for a woman perhaps. The average male its more 4 inches from eyebrow to the top of head.
184.3cm (Night) said on 29/Mar/16
ray said on 28/Mar/16
@night. The average person is 4.25 inches from eyes to top of head, it's not small. If his eye level is 5'6 then he is around 5'10 and a 1/4. I think Anckles is 5'11.5, however with his 2 inch logger boots he is 6'1.5
184.3cm (Night) said on 14/Mar/16
5'10.5" could be argued i suppose but 5'10 flat? A 4 inch eye level is crazily small.
Andrea said on 14/Mar/16
No, if he has got a 5'6 eyelevel, that would make him roughly around 5'10.5... In this picture, he does look more 5'10.5 than 5'11 for sure!
I still think he'd measure around 180 but you could argue anywhere in 5'10.5-5'11 range, i guess! Certainly noway near his 6' claim!
joe @@ said on 13/Mar/16
Ray said on 11/Mar/16
Misha's eye level is at most 5'6. That would make him 5'10.
said on 19/Feb/16
Hey Rob, how tall are you? in cm
Editor Rob: 173cm barefeet
said on 18/Feb/16
Rob, don't you think he could be 5ft10 and something? In supernatural he often look below it
Editor Rob: at his worst he might be a bit under 5ft 11
Alex said on 9/Feb/16
He should be a good 178 cm barefoot, 180 with shoes. As Ackles, Misha have some problem to say his real height, and to do so, they have to pump up Padalecki XD in this way, they look taller than they actually are.
Paleman said on 4/Feb/16
He doesn't seem like a person who is insecure of their height, the 6 foot claim was probably something off the top of his head, like "oh, I'm think I'm around 6 feet". Anyone in the 5'10'5"-5'11"5 range can get away with claiming six feet. Now, if they were using the metric system it would be a completely different matter...
Collins is definitely closer to 5'11 than 6', and even if someone said that to his face I don't think he would start jumping up and down and arguing, he'd probably just be like "yeah, that's possible."
said on 4/Feb/16
Rob, does he look similar to a Connor Trinneer in person? One claims to be a hair under 5'11, the other one 6'...
Editor Rob: yes they can look quite close.
said on 29/Nov/15
How tall do you think Misha is in this pic if the guy is 184cm?
Editor Rob: wouldn't guess him under 5ft 11
Carter said on 18/Nov/15
176-177 cm range
nothing more than that
Sam said on 16/Oct/15
Strong 179cm/weak 5'11 guy.
said on 12/Oct/15
Only 99.999? I'd say 100%, 5'9.5 is just crazy for this guy! How much difference you see in the photo with you? Maybe over 2 but not quite 3 inches? Have you got any photo of him with a 5'10 and a 5'11 guy? That would be interesting because i'm sure he'd be closer to the 5'11 guy than the 5'10...
[Editor Rob: there was a 5ft 11 guy in front of me who got a photo and Misha was similar, although he actually ended up looking taller in the photo...]
said on 11/Oct/15
What do you mean with "arguing"? I know you say that till someone is measured nothing is impossible but even without measuring him you could safely rule out 177, 100%! Do you think 179 is possible at his low or there's 0 chanche he's that low? Another thing you can rule out is his claim because there's noway he's 6 feet tall or even near that! My guess is somewhere around 180, from watching him with guys like Jensen and Jared! 5'11 is actually a smidge over 180, so i guess i wouldn't be surprised if he measured a fraction under 5'11, maybe at his low but generally this mark fits him!
[Editor Rob: I mean it's impossible in my opinion to argue he is 177cm, I've seen him up close and with other people and he's taller than that...
but, you could still make an argument for 179cm...my own argument is around 5ft 11, I'd say 90% more chance he is nearer 5ft 11 than 5ft 10.5 and 99.999 he's nearer 5ft 11 than 5ft 9.5]
said on 10/Oct/15
Really 179, Rob? I thought the lowest you'd argue was just a few mms under 5'11, like 5'10.75 at worst! Do you really think 179 is possible? Of course "176-177" is out of question, he generally looks near enough 5'11 to me!
[Editor Rob: I'm saying you could argue 179, but arguing 177 seems infinitely more harder. I think near to 5ft 11 is fine for him.]
said on 10/Oct/15
[Editor Rob: the lowest I'd argue would be 179cm, under that I don't think I could, in person I think near enough 5ft 11]
WAF said on 19/Sep/15
What does someone who is truly 5'11" say when he says he is 5'11"? The same as the 5'10" guy but in a more relaxed fashion?
said on 8/Sep/15
That's a funny picture. Looks like Misha has an inch on Jensen.
said on 1/Sep/15
Rob, seems a perfect 5'11 with you or below ben above the mark I would say solid 5'11, you guys had such footwear?
[Editor Rob: I was in I think adidas and him just a normal inch shoe, so basically very similar.]
Mat 5'10 said on 31/Aug/15
When a 5'9 guy lies about being 5'11 quotes: ''I'm only 5'11 man...''
When a true 5'11 lies about being 6 feet: ''I'm tall, I'm like 6 feet.''
When a 5'10 guy lies about being 5'11:''I'm 5'11.'' *Poker face*
Triplescrew said on 17/Jul/15
They use camera angles to make Jensen look taller than he is in SPN. Misha is usually stuck wearing shoes with an inch less than Jensen too.
Don't think there's much of a difference between them in reality. I thought Misha looked near 6 feet in
24. Put him and Jensen barefoot next to each other and I think you'd only see a small difference of maybe half an inch; 5'11" vs 5'11.5", or 6'0" vs 6'1.5" when in shoes.
said on 15/Jul/15
Well, i've just read he himself has claimed 6'5... And also 6'6! So that implies he's not a big 6'6 but maybe measured between them! How tall do you think the black guy is? He's listed at 6' on the net but he can look shorter than Misha in the clip!
[Editor Rob: not sure about that other guy.]
said on 15/Jul/15
Rob, do you really think he's 7 inches shorter than Ryan Lee Stiles?
He can look maybe 5-5.5 inches shorter than him in that clip but i doubt 7!!! There's noway a 5'11 guy would looks so tall next to a 6'6 person! He actually doesn't look much different than how he looks with Jared!
[Editor Rob: he can look about 6, maybe a bit more shorter...ryan may well not be quite 6ft 6 anymore.]
Andrea said on 8/Jun/15
While he might a fraction under 5'11 at his worst, i highly doubt he's 5'10! Even with Rob he does look over it...
Ron said on 8/Jun/15
I was just catching up on Supernatural, and in that second to last episode when he has face-face scenes with Dean I was surprised how small be looked. If Ackles is 6' that would make him perhaps 6'1.5 in those big boots he wears, by comparison Collins looked no taller than 5'10, making him perhaps 5'9 without shoes. This obviously seems a little low, and of course this is only one incident skewed by posture etc. I'm starting to think though Collins may be lower than 5'11, and 5'10 is closer to the mark...
Andrea said on 8/Feb/15
Jensen can appear a big 6'0.5 guy a lot on Supernatural but, as Rob said, he's a guy who often wears big boots (like 1.5-1.75 inches) so he's got some advantage next to the other costars who wears thinner shoes... In reality, i think he's just about 182, a weak 6' guy! Misha is maybe a couple cms smaller than him, even if, yeah, he can look 1.5 inches shorter than him at times! Misha at around 180 and Jensen at 182 are fine, IMO! And Jared he's at least a solid 6'4 guy, no less than that!
said on 7/Feb/15
Just looking at various reference pictures now it strikes me that he's a bit like Jude Law - a chameleon of heights. If we take this site's reference for Jensen at 6'0, Misha can frequently look between 5'10 and 5'11.5. Whilst I think his 6' claim is unrealistic I do think he does just mean "oh, you know, I'm about 6' (he does strike me as not caring much - 5'10/11 is basically weak 6' region if you're not making an effort to notice height anyway).
Either he or Jensen sometimes wear lifts or very large heels on shoes, or I'd put him at solid 5'11, possibly hitting a little higher on a good day but generally standing 5'10ish with posture and shrinking. Maybe it's just something as simply as he has a spine which compresses a lot with a larger amount of fluid between the vertebrae, taking him from 11 to perhaps 10 or lower by the end of the day: that would quite nicely account for his slightly erratic height.
And for what it's worth - I've never considered him short! In actual fact when watching Supernatural he always struck me as tall, as a 11 guy would do, it's just that JJ strike you as massive (in height, but I think also predominantly in muscle mass, they both seem to be that rare combination of very tall AND mesomorphic) so that, I think, accounts for why people think he's small.
[Editor Rob: I'm sure in one episode at least he was in something like a vans type sneaker like half inch, then he's up against Ackles in 1.6 inch boots, he's going to be at a 1 inch disadvantage...in fact he did look a couple of inches under Ackles in the episode so it made sense.]
Dmeyer said on 27/Jan/15
No léss than 5'10.75 with rob as he looks 2.5-2.75 in and rob is prêtty much 5' 8.25
joe 192cm said on 15/Jan/15
I noticed that the jared uses big shoes times and forced posture in photographs with Momoa
Lonestar said on 15/Dec/14
Jared 6'6 LOL.. He must have exaggerated too much. His not even 5'11. I see a 5'10 guy with solid 5'8 rob here
said on 20/Oct/14
You really think he's shorter than Jim then? I mean, i think near 5'11 is fine for Misha, not impossible he measures a bit under it, but he looks around 180 next to Jared and a couple of cms under Jensen, sometimes more but Jensen wears big shoes a lot!
[Editor Rob: they both can look similar]
said on 5/Oct/14
Rob, what do you think is more likely for Misha 5ft 10.75 or 5ft 11.25?
[Editor Rob: at 9am 11.25, at end of day after being thrown about set, maybe 10.75!]
said on 16/Sep/14
Rob, you think a guy like him, who claims 6' but actually isn't over 5'11... He knows he's not 6' or he really thinks to be that mark? He always says that he's 6' but he clearly is not...
[Editor Rob: he certainly is what I'd call an entertaining personality, at least he tries his best. But I wouldn't take him too seriously, he probably is giving his shoe height.]
mike said on 19/Aug/14
he could be a strong 5ft 11 181 cm.
RogerH said on 31/Jul/14
Around 178 compared to Jensen imo...
TJE said on 19/Jul/14
Looks like a 2.75 inch difference. Unless Rob's got more footwear or he accidently forgot to drop to 5'8, I'm seeing 5'10.75.
Tommo said on 1/Jun/14
Another guy upgrading Jared to make himself feel better about his own height, same as Jensen. That must get tiresome!
Emmett said on 21/May/14
@Andrea, Most people can't tell the difference between a 5 and 6 inch difference in height just by eyeballing it.
freddy said on 22/Mar/14
@andrea he says that jared is 6'6 to make his own claim seem more believable...in realitly misha is about 179cm without shoes and 180cm in the morning when the spine is at its longest
Andrea said on 8/Mar/14
Well if he looked a solid 5'11, i guess you would have listed him at 5'11.25 :)
5'11 is probably his max... Strange he says Jared is 6'6, i mean he claims 6' and thinks Jared is 6 inches taller than him... He looks about 5 inches taller for sure, but i doubt he would be 6 inches taller!
said on 8/Mar/14
Rob, could he be a bit under 5'11? Or he lOoks a solid 5'11 in person?
[Editor Rob: he's probably more of a 5ft 11 than jim beaver, possibly beaver is weak 5ft 11 and misha is just about on the 5ft 11 exact]
Dan said on 4/Mar/14
Rob is spot on as I've met Misha at Asylum 8 Supernatural convention and he is definately at least 5'11"! I didn't think he was that tall until I met him
Hypado said on 20/Feb/14
179cm in Supernatural.
Emmett said on 10/Feb/14
I don't think he was saying that he was 6'0 exactly, just that he was in the ballpark of 6 feet tall-- not particularly short.
kyuss said on 8/Jan/14
i see 5-11 here,sorry not 6-0.
Misha said on 26/Sep/13
If Jensen is really 6'0, Misha must be 5'10, 5'10.5 because on the show he looks about 2 inches shorter than Jensen.
vj said on 15/Sep/13
I think he is between 5'9 and 5'10
lelman said on 31/Aug/13
@mdl c'mon man, Rob has met all of them. They are all tall(ish) guys. Jared is easily 6'4.
sherry said on 24/Mar/13
I am really surprised, he does look short, I wouldn't have thought he was six feet tall.
tom said on 25/Dec/12
a very weak 5-11" imo
ANDREA[ITA] said on 14/Aug/12
Next to jared, he doesnt look under 5'11!
ray 6\' 158 lbs said on 8/Aug/12
i think he is 179 cm jensen 182 cm and jared is 193 or at least thats the way how i saw in the past 7 years in supnat and i guess bobby is 178-9cm
lol93 said on 27/Jan/12
i thought too that he was like 5'9 or something when i saw him in supernatural nex to other actors but he really is 180cm
nice guy said on 24/Jan/12
accurate listing ..however I guess its more like his morning height with perfect posture..jensen is actually 5'11 too but wears fat boots to appear an inch taller..I always had jensen for a 6 feet guy but after I noticed his huge shoes and saw season 2 ep 1 of supernatural in which he was barefoot 5'11 is max for him
....jared is around 6'3 flat i think and 6'4 in sneakers or something
btw I like Misha's claim...he only rounded up by about an inch unlike the majority actors rounding up by at least 2-3 inches and wearing lifts -.-
marylou said on 28/Dec/11
That is so awsome! i didn't know that-try 5'2 that sucks but i keep on going-so keep up the great job, don't let it get ya down
Isabella said on 2/Dec/11
LOL Jared is 6'6"? The guy is tall but not THAT tall. Misha's such a joker :P.
said on 24/Nov/11
Misha doesn't look 5'11" here. I buy 5'10.5" tops here. Most people its 3 inches the distance between your eyes and your mouth. Both Rob and Misha look like they are standing pretty straight but Rob's eyes are at the tip of Misha's nose which looks like Misha has 2-2.5 inches on him at the most. I guess one way to tell also, Rob what kind of shoes was Misha wearing at this convention? If he was wearing boots most of them can give you a 1 inch + advantage.
[Editor Rob: I was wearing 0.9 inch sneakers, Misha had normal inchish footwear from what I recall, certainly not his cowboy boots which he sometimes wears at events.]
linke said on 1/Nov/11
jared has always maintained 6'4.
Ash said on 1/Nov/11
A thing to keep in mind is that the shoes Misha wears on the Supernatural set are men's dress loafers with very thin soles. Jensen and Jared both wear heavy boots on set. Jensen especially wears thick soled boots to help even the height difference between the "brothers" since they often have to be blocked in the same shot and Jared really is enormously tall.
I'd easily believe that Misha is 5'11" and just rounding up for extra emphasis in that quote as he often does while speaking about anything. I think Jensen is 6' without the boots and have no idea about Jared who I think probably tends toward under reporting his actual height for fear of not getting parts since he tends to make everyone he's around look oddly small.
Triplescrew said on 26/Oct/11
Jared maybe brushes 6'7" in 2 inch boots right after waking up after 12 hours of sleep if you include his hair.
Victoria said on 24/Oct/11
Jared is 6'7". He has told his fans how tall he is during conventions, he is 6'7". With the way that they shoot Supernatural is looks like Jared isn't that much taller than Jensen but he really is MUCH taller. Misha's around 5'11"-6'.
Triplescrew said on 19/Oct/11
5'10.75" barefoot, over 6'0" in whatever shoes he wears in Supernatural. Another shoe height guy.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 9/Oct/11
2-3 cms shorter than Jensen, who is 181-182! He's more like 178-179 and he looks it next to rob!
linke said on 8/Oct/11
ackles does have him by an inch or so.But this guy at his lowest could be 5'10.75 nothing under.
Mat said on 25/Sep/11
5'10, Ackles=5'11, Padalecki=6'4
Yo said on 7/Jul/11
If you look at pics from last convention, he is clearly shorter than 6ft Ackles so i'd say 5ft10.75
rob89 said on 18/Jun/11
Barely 2 inches between him and Rob IMO, don't be fooled by his hair. Doesn't look a legit 5'11 at all, and his posture looks fine as well.
JellO said on 7/May/11
No, Ackles looks more four inches shorter than Padalecki, there's a significant difference between them. Granted I think Padalecki is a very strong 6'4, but still, I'd put Ackles at closer to 6'0, MAYBE 6'0.25. Collins is a strong 5'11.
Julia said on 4/Apr/11
He must be his claimed six feet. In the show he consistently appears about an inch shorter than Jensen whom I believe to be 6,1". Jensen is three inches shorter, and appears so, than Jared, who is 6,4".
Kim Debyah said on 17/Mar/11
I thought Misha was like 5'7 when i saw him next to Jared :) LOL X So happy to hear that my favorite heavenly angel is tall enough for my 5'9 framed!!! Yeah!!
azza said on 7/Mar/11
Next to ackles looked a pretty similar height... i had him 5'11 - 6'0
said on 7/Mar/11
Rob,found a quote where he claims 6 feet as his height
Because the other actors on "Supernatural" are misfits of nature - they're giants - fans usually think that I'm short. I'm actually six feet tall, but when I'm being filmed next to Jared Padalecki , who's 6'6" or something, I look like a tiny wood-elf. People who've only seen me as the brooding, ethereal Castiel, are also usually surprised that in real life I have the capacity to smile and blink.
[Editor Rob: I'll add that at the top thanks. I believe he's 6 foot in a shoe.]
Jo said on 26/Feb/11
In Supernatural he really doesn't look a full 5'11, especially given that I'm pretty sure Ackles is more 6'0 than his claimed 6'1. I'd say 5'10.5, I'd even buy 5'10 before 5'11. I just don't see it.
Yo said on 20/Feb/11
Viper said on 3/Dec/10
Dont see 3 inches. More 2-2.5 inches.
Hes 5'10 range.
Claire said on 1/Dec/10
Of course it's hard to tell someone's height from a photo or film (especially when we're talking about 1 and 2cm), but I always figured Misha was a six-footer, and his "Supernatural" co-stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki were 6'1 and (at least) 6'4 respectively.
