Comment on the Height of Nicholas Hoult

Nicholas Hoult look's around this mark with Jennifer Lawrence. And looks taller than a lot of male leads in films so this seems accurate.

"Nicholas Hoult's height is 6ft 3in (191cm)"

Not a fan of him either but he's a tall kid. He can look 2in taller than 6ft1 guys.

Actually he doesn't seem that different these days in interviews compared to how he did nearly a decade ago.

I dunno maybe he's one of those two faced actors who seems nice and humble in front of the camera but turns into a jerk in real life.
[Editor Rob: being an actor is a choice, and most people should realise the downsides, but we are all human and sometimes being very famous changes people...for the worse, but maybe also some become better for it!
James B said on 28/Oct/15
Rob, back in 2007 at college I knew a girl that i think was like 5'3? who met Nicholas hoult at a house party. She took a photo of him actually but kept saying how tall and "really ugly" he was. Apparently according to her he was very moody when she approached him.

I think maybe he has mellowed down now somewhat, and seems more humble these days in interviews. He looks better now with short hair compared to the shaggy haired look he had back in 2007 (no homo). Heard mostly bad things about him, from people at college who met him all those years ago. Hoult grew up in a town only 10 miles from where I live but other people I knew that met him lived in his hometown. In one of my classes in sixth form I knew someone who was quite good friends with him and he said that Nick just got fed up with people approaching him.

He was actually going to attend my local college nearly 10 years ago in 2006 but for security reasons he didn't.

At least 1 inch shorter than Michael Shannon who is listed here at 6'3.5, so somewhere in the range from 6'2 to 6'2.75 seems right for him
Allie said on 4/Oct/15
Seems spot on. He looked almost 3.5 inches taller than Charlize in dress shoes while Charlize wore heels that made her almost 3 inches taller than Tom.

How do u fare he would look beside Tom welling

He's clearly taller than Tom Hiddleston (and Hoult isn't even standing up as straight as Hiddleston):
Moke said on 2/Sep/15
@ my mum once was 5'5 and my dad 5'11.5. I'm 6'2 and my brothers both measure 6'3. My girlfriend for example only measures 5'6.5 with a dad of 6'4.5 and a mum being 5'5. I think one's parents heights are always an indication but never tell the whole truth.
A6'2Guy said on 2/Jul/15
@Judd My mother in her prime was (probably) about 5'5 (maybe more 5'4) and father about 6'2, going by this I could be 6'3 when done growing. Now I have a friend who has a mother that is about 5'8 - 5'9 (Equivalent of 6'2 - 6'3 for a male) with a father who is about average (Like my mother) and we pretty much meet eye to eye, that makes sense to me, what you are saying COULD be just a myth.
joe 193cm night said on 13/Jun/15
Rob, 189cm to possible low night of it?
[Editor Rob: it's possible, somewhere in 189-90 range most of the day though]
Andrew M said on 19/May/15
In the early adverts for "Skins", I thought he had a look of a young Tom Cruise about him, so I wasn't surprised he's had a bit of success as an actor. But it appears he's taller than Tom!
Andrew M said on 19/May/15
I always thought this guy was only ~5'8", but then I've never really watched any of the shows he was in. He just got mentioned a lot on Channel 4, during their "T4" phase.
As for theories here about parents' height, in my experience tall guys usually have taller mothers, e.g. most 6 footers I know have mothers around 5'6", but my friend is ~5'2"+, and she has a 6ft+ son; so there's more to it than simple arithmetic, I reckon.
Judd said on 13/May/15
[Editor Rob: his Mum maybe could be close to 5ft 8]

Yeah i agree i think both her mum and dad are more 5'8" than 5'9"...
Judd said on 9/May/15
rob from that picture, you think 5'9" for his mum is accurate? Click Here

IMO she does look almost 20 cms shorter than him, so in the 5'7" but actually i haven't already understood what kind of shoes does she wear there (with or without heels)...
also for his dad, 5'9" seems a bit overestimated if he's 189-190 cms...
[Editor Rob: his Mum maybe could be close to 5ft 8]
MD said on 8/May/15
It's weird, I do believe this listing, but he's been looking shorter, lately.

With 5'11"(ish) Jimmy Kimmel:

With 5'9" Tom Hardy:

Obviously, we can't see their shoes. And, it's completely possible, both Kimmel and Hardy either have a footwear advantage or something in their shoes. But, it's just a bit weird.

6'3 is spot on for Nick x men days of future past. he is an inch taller than 6'2 Jackman standing side by need to up him to 6'3

I can't believe this guy went out with Jennifer Lawrence...

I think he may be the full 6ft3...

If JLaw is 5'7.5 then this is an accurate listing, he's got a solid 7 inches on her.

Realist said on 2/Nov/14
Rob i think you can have him at a full 6'3, he is almost a head more than 5'7.25 McAvoy. Whats the talk about parents height here ?
[Editor Rob: I think his almost 6ft 3 claim is ok, I believe he's probably measured at just under it]
Judd said on 9/Oct/14
well, i read an article which mentioned that, with more chance, a guy takes by his mum while a lady by his dad...eye and hair colour, kind of skin, and sometimes also the character...height is one of those things.
but i repeat personally i'm a bit skeptical regarding those theories...
Judd said on 8/Oct/14
rob, there are urban legends that say that the height of a boy is more influenced by the height of his mother and the height of a girl most the height of his father.
in other words , a boy born to parents both tall 5'9 is more likely to be taller than another boy born to a 6'3 father and a 5'3 mother. for girls would be the opposite .
you believe is right, statistically?
[Editor Rob: if research studies show it, then it might be a good indicator but I've not read enough any papers talking about it.]
Judd said on 7/Oct/14
rob i read the article who published pedro. you think he might be frequent that from a couple where both are 5'9" tall born a guy tall almost 6'3"?

From my experience, i met people who were very tall, like 6'1 or more, and their parents weren't much tall, and others who were shorter than their frequent that a guy or lady gets over his dad or her mum?
[Editor Rob: you are going to have genetic combinations which mean some children get more of the 'tall' aspects of the genes from both parents and maybe some random element which can result in a taller than expected son/daughter.]
Judd said on 7/Oct/14
However 6'2.75" is fair. He had about 2,5" on Bill Nighy and Nighy is not below 6'0.5" today...
Judd said on 2/Oct/14
He was 6'2.5" before?
[Editor Rob: a while back, but after saying he was almost 6ft 3, the old 2.75 listing sounded good :)]

Take a look at this pic he, doesn't look +190cm. He's slouching a bit though.

James B said on 2/Aug/14
He grew up in Wokingham which is only 11 miles from where I live.

Heard mostly bad things about him from people who met him but maybe he's grown up now?

Michael Strahan is 194 AT MOST, comparing with Alexander skarsgard.
Nicholas with Michael. I'd say no more than 6'2.

Exactly. Michael Strahan has the same height as Alexander Skarsgard.
6'2 tops for Nicholas and no more than that

in X-Men - Days of Future Past: Hoult: 189-190 cm Jackman: 187-188 cm.
Astaroth said on 1/Jun/14
Banshee says on 24/Mar/14
Looks 2 cm taller than Jackman in the new trailer of "X-Men: Days of Future Past", where they stand should-to-should next to each other.

Exactly. When they stand side by side Hoult does look taller than Jackman. Plus, Jackman/Wolverine is always seen wearing boots, while Hoult/Beast is either wearing Adidas-like sneakers or barefoot - at least that's what the audience sees. My guess is a weak 6'3 for Hoult and 6'1.5 max for Jackman...
Realist said on 1/May/14
Rob, how tall is Lucas Till ? He claimes 5'10 but didnt look much taller than James McAvoy, i would put him on 5'8.5 or McAvoy is 5'7.5". As for this guy he is as tall as Liam Hemsworth for sure.
[Editor Rob: lucas can look close to 5ft 9 I think, McAvoy at times can look a bit above 5ft 7, but he also can wear boots and it wouldn't surprise me at times if he has worn a small lift.]

MD said on 27/Jan/14
Maybe, it's the footwear. I don't know. From the pics I'm looking at, Hoult seems to have on some very thinly-heeled boots, but I can't rally tell if Shannon has on boots, too. Either way, in the pics I'm looking at, there is not much of a difference. He may really be a full 6'3".
Pedro said on 24/Jan/14
@MD I think that in some pictures the difference is more a matter of posture and camera angle. Per example, in this pictures Michael looks slightly taller than Nicholas: Click Here
[Editor Rob: good chance nicholas has more footwear, no idea on the ground though.]

Here is Nicolas looking A LOT taller than 6'1.5 listed Colin Firth.

This pis with Colin Firth confirms that Nick is a full 6-3 if not a little over. He has more than two inches on Firth in every pic of them together.
MD said on 24/Jan/14
Something is wrong here. There are pictures of him at the Sundance Film Festival, this week, with him looking as tall (if not a quarter-inch or so taller) than 6'3.5" Michael Shannon.

191-192 cm range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Dec/13
More 185-186cm for Firth. He can look 184cm at times but it might be posture. But this kid is definitely about 6ft3. It's quite scary how he sprouted up so fast. I still remember seeing him About A Boy.
Hypado said on 12/Nov/13

Tim said on 3/Sep/13
His growth is kind of like mine I predict, so I think I will be 6 ft 2.5
Pierre said on 20/Aug/13
I saw him on the tube in London, I'm 6 ft 4.5 and he wasn't far off, he's a solid 6ft3 I think, he's a good fella.
Emily said on 9/Aug/13
How tall does Eleanor look next to him in the above picture?
[Editor Rob: like a 5ft 11 person if they had exact same footwear, of course how much heels she has I'm not sure on.]
Rocket said on 16/May/13
They are both taller than me. My dad is 6'2" and my mum is 5'7" so I am somewhere in between at 5'10".
Byron T. said on 23/Feb/13
I just watched Warm Bodies and he looked about 4 inches taller than a 5'11'' listed Rob Corddry. This listing seems fair.
me said on 25/Jan/13
He looked 3" shorter than 6'4" Michael Strahan on Kelly and Michael.
truth said on 12/Jan/13
He towers over other guys in "Skins". 6ft3 at minimum.
dntwrry said on 30/Nov/12
i saw him on the underground once and he ws th tallest person in th carrage, i wudda fought he w at least 6,4
Gigi said on 28/Nov/12
Nicholas is really tall And so cute. I love tall guys!!!!
James said on 19/Nov/12
Looks 6'1.75 in the photo but in person probably would appear 6'3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/12
Looks 4cm taller than Colin Firth. So Rob, maybe a downgrade to 186cm for Firth?
Maximus Meridius said on 29/Aug/12
Rob is a 6ft 3in flat possible for him he must have grown after the age of 20 which is very rare only a small minority grow at 20 and after 20.
[Editor Rob: I think the almost 6ft 3 is the range he has looked for a few years now.]
Shaun said on 2/Aug/12
I think he's exactly what he claims and what Rob now lists him at, weak 6'3".
Editor Rob said on 30/Jul/12
Found him giving a quote in 2009 when he was 19 saying he was nudging 6ft 3.
JK said on 29/Aug/07
Yeah he looks 6'2''
alex said on 29/Aug/07
anyone know anything else about the other characters in skins?
statto said on 2/Mar/07
Yes he looks easily 6'2" in skins.
Editor Rob said on 7/Sep/06
Quoted in June 2006:
"Yes, I'm 6ft 2in," says the handsome 16-year-old actor. "I put on a bit of a spurt after About A Boy, but I think I've stopped growing now. People are always saying, 'Haven't you grown!'"
John said on 27/Apr/06
Ive met this kid in person and he towers over me. Im 5'7 and he was at least 8 inches taller.
AA said on 5/Jan/06
This guy was too short in About A Boy that I couldn't believe he's 6'2... I thought he was like... 5' 10 or something...
CelebHeights Editor said on 21/Aug/05
Time to update this guy. He's nearly 16 and has grown a fair bit in the last year and does look tall. Looking at pics of him, he is as he said last week in Telegraph newspaper "Richard wanted me to play him aged 11 and 15, but as soon as he saw how tall I'd grown - I'm six foot two - he had a rethink and cast another boy as his younger self"
me said on 14/Aug/05
There was an article a few months back saying that he is now 6 foot 3. His latest photo was not there though.
