How tall is Tom Welling ?

Tom Welling height: 6ft 2.75in (190 cm)

American actor best known for starring as Clark Kent in tv series Smallville. In film he has appeared in The Fog and Draft Day. In an article by Rob Allstetter of The Comics Continuum, he quotes Sam Jones (a 5ft 7 member of the cast) as saying: I asked, "Hey, Tom, how tall are you?" Because I was waiting for him to say 5-7 and I could start laughing. He's like, "6-2 or 6-3.". Welling himself has also stated that "I'm almost six-foot-three" and "about 6'3."

[Editor Rob: low]

Tom Welling: 6ft 2.75-3in 190-191 cm
Kevin Costner peak: 6ft 1-1.25in 185-186 cm today: 6ft 0.75-1in 185 cm
Tuga says on 13/Oct/14
Been rewatching smallville, 1.90cms seems perfect, totally agree with Rob on this one.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 4/Oct/14
Anything below a flat 190cm is bogus for Welling

Tom Welling new interview 04/02/2014 claiming almost 6ft3 Link here Click Here

Part of interview:
As a model who entered acting, is it an obstable because people see just a pretty face? I think the way I looked helped me with Smallville; being similar to what they thought Clark Kent looked like. My height has never helped. I'm almost 6-3. People say, 'Oh, you're too tall.' Maybe it's a nice way of saying I'm no good.
In Smallville, I was new to the industry but I was fortunate enough to be cast as a character who was new to himself. So I as I learned, he learned.

190-191cm Tall guy. I didnt think John looked taller at all. And didnt he even say that Tom was taller than him?
Joe says on 26/Sep/14
190 cm is his height. He consistently looked 1-2 cm shorter than John Schneider in Smallville. John is listed at 6'3"(as that is evident from his pic with Rob).

He has himself claimed "almost 6'3" " which means he's a littler bit shorter than that.I can't really understand making a huge deal out of 0.5 cm. There isn't any visible difference between 190.5 cm and 191 cm.
Andrea says on 31/Aug/14
Well, you can see the same guy with:
- James Franco : Click Here
- Benicio Del Toro (back in 2010): Click Here
- Eva Riccobono (an italian model listed on her agency at 179): Click Here
He still does look much shorter than Tom, though...
Andrea says on 31/Aug/14
I told you i meant the guy at 1:50 and not the tall one... I thought this guy was easily 5 inches shorter to be fair, but yeah a clip like that is not the ideal... You think he might be 5'10-5'10.5?
[Editor Rob: 5ft 10 flat is a possibility yes]
Andrea says on 31/Aug/14
Sorry Rob, but if this is just a couple inches difference, i think i'll give up guessing heights because Tom does look a lot taller to me:
Click Here
[Editor Rob: I was talking about the other guy, the black fella....ah, this guy, well he could appear between 4 and 5 inches smaller in that part of the clip.]
Andrea says on 30/Aug/14
The guy at ~1:50 is 184-185? O.o Hell, he does look noticeably shorter than Tom! I dont mean the tall guy who actually looks taller than 184 next to the other celebrities...
[Editor Rob: couple of inches shorter is what he looked.]
Andrea says on 29/Aug/14
So, Rob? I ask you because i seen him with other italian celebrities and i wanna know what you think he looks with Tom...
[Editor Rob: in the clip you showed before he can look a few inches smaller, maybe around 184-5 zone.]
Andrea says on 28/Aug/14
Rob, how tall you think the guy he talks to (from about 1:47 on)?
Click Here
Robbin says on 28/Aug/14
He was just 2inch taller than 6'0.5 Kevin Costner , i would say Tom was a solid 6'2.5 and 6'2.75 on a good day.
Tommo says on 11/Aug/14
Man alive, can't believe the guy's 37 now. Judging by the few pictures and video of him and Padalecki together, I think a weak 6'3 is pretty bang on. Seems like a rare case of a guy being exactly what he claims.
John says on 10/Aug/14
Do you really think Tom shrinks an inch by the end of the day at 37? I think it's more likely he drops .25 of an inch and is 6'3 in the morning and at night is 6'2.75 to 6'2.5. I maintain that the bulk of the evidence that suggests he is beyond this height is most of Hollywood inflates their heights which makes a legit "almost 6'3" seem taller than it is.
Andrea says on 9/Aug/14
6'3 out of bed? Since he very likely is a guy who is a solid 190 at his worst, he probably isn't less than 6'4 out of bed!
John says on 8/Aug/14
Rob, do you think it's likely that Tom could be 6'3 fresh out of bed?
[Editor Rob: I think he would probably be 6ft 3.5-3.75 out of bed, there is more chance shrinking near an inch at that height]
Andrea says on 2/Aug/14
Yeah, you're right! But you gotta admit that the more you see of him the more he looks no less than the listinf, unlike many others on here. Just think about a Ben Affleck or Will Smith, i could post several pics of them where they looks at least 0.5 inches shorter than their listing but i'm not doing it because i know you wouldn't change your mind! I named them but i could name many other celebrities!
[Editor Rob: I think Welling can hold his listing fine, there is enough to say he is nearly 6ft 3.]
Andrea says on 2/Aug/14
I perfectly know that but you can see say the same with the pics you post "as some kind of proof" plus the possible uneven ground!
[Editor Rob: the ultimate proof would be a measurement, but treat what is posted as evidence.

Sometimes the more evidence that we see, the more chance our opinion of a height can change from the current opinion. Or it can even solidify or enforce our belief in the height we think someone is.]
Andrea says on 1/Aug/14
Rob, isn't this guy the famous stuntman?
Click Here
In this photo they aren't outside and Tom is clearly taller xD
[Editor Rob: it looks like him, although how much each might lose in leaning is harder to tell.]
John says on 17/Jul/14
I've seen multiple behind the scenes specials and commentary that talk about cast members walking on ramps, standing on boxes and even digging ditches for Tom to stand and walk In. There is also commentary on the fact that if you can't see Tom's feet he's wearing sandals or even slippers not the big boots. All this was done for framing purposes, not to minimize his height. With all that said this does make it difficult at times to judge his height. There are scenes where the camera pulls back for a full body shot and I'm sometimes surprised to see the true height differences between Tom and the rest of the cast. I've even seen behind the scene photos and footage of Tom and John Scheinder and Tom more often than not edges john. The reason Tom edges out other Hollywood stars with similar height claims is their claims are inflated, his isn't.
Andrea says on 11/Jul/14
Vtec, too bad there's just that photo with Pence... Josh is closer to the camera but Tom still seems taller than him! And look at Josh with Armie Hammer, who is listed at 6'4.5, he really doesn't look more than an inch shorter than Hammer! So once again, just according to the other listings on here, Tom looks taller than an "almost 6'3"... Rob, i could post many scenes where Tom can look a bit taller than his costars. Rosenbaum himself said he used apple boxes with him because he's too tall... But it still doesn't make any sense since he's Superman and must look imposing!
[Editor Rob: for close ups sometimes they will make it easier by using small ramps on set, it is understandable, but in a lot of wide shots I thought they certainly weren't trying to make Tom look anything but his height!]
vtec says on 9/Jul/14
looks slightly taller than 6'3" Josh Pence.

Click Here
Andrea says on 9/Jul/14
Rob, why do you think they always try to reduce his height on Smallville? You can clearly see that when he has scenes with all the other actors, like Rosenbaum or Glover... They always use low camera angles which favour the others, there are a few scenes when you can see he's noticeably taller than all of them but in most of the scenes those actors can look just a bit shorter! I mean, he's superman, as you said, he should look imposing!
[Editor Rob: I don't think they did much to reduce his height, maybe in some cases for framing any tall guy with a smaller guy they may have done a little, but from watching the show I don't remember him not looking tall or near 6ft 3.

It makes no sense to reduce Superman's height, if anything they'd be wanting to make him look at least the height he is.]
Rey says on 1/Jul/14
He was also playing Clark Kent. Christopher Reeve said that he would compress his back when playing the Daily Planet Reporter. That is a fact.
Yaspaa says on 26/Jun/14
Yeah, Reeve was taller... and? He didn't slouch, he was playing Superman for God's sake.
Andrea says on 25/Jun/14
Rob, how tall you think Eric Johnson is? On Smallville, he can really look 6'2 with Kavan Smith, who's listed at 5'8 on here (a weak one, as you said):
Click Here
Click Here
I've seen him in other shows like Supernatural or Orphan Black and he looked near 6'2, even there...
But with Tom, he never looks this tall. Click Here
I post this pic because Tom is wearing "normal" shoes there, so no Timbs advantage... He looks 6'1.25 at most if Welling is 6'2.75, there (and through all the series).
[Editor Rob: he can look anywhere from 6ft 1 to 2 at times, been a long time since I watched those early smallvilles]
Rey says on 24/Jun/14
To the previous comment: Christopher Reeve was a sloucher. Even in some of Superman's scene as Clark Kent he over did it. I believe Reeve had more height, but some how would diminish it --there is scene where he takes off his glasses and "grows" 3 inches as he almost tells Lois Lane his other identity. In every movie and in every appearance he starts to slouch. The best posture for Reeve was on the tonight show with Johnny Carson--that evening he looked 6'4" without a doubt. I would give him 6'3.5" at his lowest. I believe Chris to be taller and bigger than Welling and Routh. I see little difference between Tom and Brandon, but Christopher is still King. The photo of Williams and Reeve --is not a good reference. There are other photos where Reeve towers over Williams. Look at some of the old photos of Reeve and Annette O' Toole, not Welling or Schneider made her look so small.
Josh says on 24/Jun/14
Tom Welling: 6'3
Ben Affleck: 6'2.5
Brandon Routh: 6'3
Jared Padalecki: 6'4

They are tall guys and I think all of them except for Affleck are over 6'3
Andrea says on 24/Jun/14
As i already said, i dont think he would just "edge out" Affleck by a small fraction, he could even be a big inch taller... I dont buy affleck at 6'2.5, 6'2 flat is ok and i wouldnt be surprised if he was a bit under that mark! As for Routh, i'm the first saying he's no less than 6'2.5, but 6'3? Mm, i wouldnt him at that height, if there was even a small chance he was that tall, i think Rob would have given 6'3... I think Tom would edge him out, like 1 cm taller... It would be interesting to do a comparison between the two and maybe even Reeve, who i dont think was a full 6'4... Robin Williams held his own next to him... Just look at 5'7 guys with real 6'4 guys like Padalecki, they are completely dwarfed!
Rey says on 22/Jun/14
Tom Welling would edge out Ben Affleck. I think it would be closer with Brandon Routh. I think Routh is close to 6'3",too.
Andrea says on 20/Jun/14
Rob, interesting pic with Michael Shanks, that you met:
Click Here
He has no Timbs or thick shoes in this pic for sure and Shanks probably has shoe advantage (just looking at the outfit)... How tall you think he looks?
[Editor Rob: he doesn't look over 5ft 11 but his posture is more of a pose, in person he does look 6ft though.]
Rey says on 17/Jun/14
Sometimes he and Chris Cuomo can pass for brothers. About the same height, too.
Andrea says on 28/May/14
And, just out of curiosity, how tall you think is the blond guy here?
Click Here
[Editor Rob: he could look taller, possibly near 6ft 4]
Andrea says on 26/May/14
Rob, how much difference you think there is here?
Click Here
The other guy is Shawn Ashmore, who generally looks around 180...
[Editor Rob: it's not a long scene standing, he can look about 4 inches in a moment when side by side]
Jay says on 19/May/14
KROC there's not much difference between 6'2.5 and 6'3.
KROC says on 12/May/14
I think 6'2.5 is perfect for him. He doesn't look as tall as a legit 6'3 guy like Kevin Sorbo for instance.
Andrea says on 7/May/14
Yeah, John. I never bought that listing too, around 6'2 would be ok but 6'2.5 is very very optimistic...
John says on 3/May/14
Affleck is listed at 6' 2.5" but I've always been incredulous of this listing. I also don't believe him to be over 6'2 but I wanted to know Rob's opinion on it.
Andrea says on 3/May/14
I'd like to see Ben claiming his absurd 6'3.5-6'4, in front of Tom Welling, who says almost 6'3... It'd be like G claiming 5'9 to Rob, a very funny scene!
Andrea says on 3/May/14
Edge out? He'd be at least an inch taller, also because Affleck is not over 6'2...
John says on 2/May/14
Rob, in your opinion do you think Welling would edge out Ben Affleck?
[Editor Rob: I think he would probably win a height battle with affleck.]
Arch Stanton says on 25/Apr/14
LMAO haha. Rob you'd make a good actor, you looked genuinely distressed!! Still, you could have always measured 5'6.75"! :-)
[Editor Rob: I may have done a Hulk and smashed up the stadiometer!! ]
Andrea says on 24/Apr/14
What if Tom measured almost 6'3 with that model, Rob? :)
I dont think his recent claim comes from a second measurement. As i said, he's not like many users on here who spend their days by measuring themselves. He probably has better things to do ;)
[Editor Rob: I think his height fits with other people...if you are almost a mark, sometimes you check it or are curious to see if you can reach it. I would be surprised if he hasn't measured a few times in his 20's.]
Lorne says on 23/Apr/14
Lol, I think a lot of people don't get Rob's sense of humor. :)
[Editor Rob: don't laugh, I came in under 5ft 8 myself on the SneakyG Model...but remember to only watch until about 40 seconds out of respect for the incredible shrinking rob, watching any further would only prolong my pain :(]
DinDonDan (ex Balrog2) says on 18/Apr/14
Rob that's something, and now it makes sense.

Still, nevertheless, everybody here would like a picture with someone close his height with whom we could compare his heght.
Lorne says on 17/Apr/14
To be fair, he's still taller than a lot of guys on here listed 6'3. It's quite possible he is 190 at low. But yeah, he didn't measure wrong, and besides, with his posture a mismeasurement was unlikely to begin with.
Balrog says on 17/Apr/14
If he came up again with the almost 6'3" then there is really no chance he got measured wrong. I believe him now a legit 190cm, even though he can look the full 6'3" many times.
CelebLifts says on 16/Apr/14
Stop insulting Tom's intelligence by saying he didn't measure properly. Of course he measured right. How could you measure yourself wrong for 13 years??? There is no evidence that Tom is 6'3, only evidence he's below it. Welling himself said "I'm almost six-foot-three" and he's never said he's 6'3 so stop saying he's a full 6'3.

What somebody should be doing is sending him a tweet and ask him what height that "almost" height is. Tell him about this page and ask him to confirm on here his exact height.
[Editor Rob: I've just heard from a reliable source that his measurement was done on the stadiometer called the G56 model.

Now this damn model was retired (it's the one the guy on youtube called skintightflasher or something is using and gives him an extra cm)!

So almost 6ft 3, minus half and there we go, 6ft 2 and 1/3rdish!

Time to close the page :)]
francois says on 16/Apr/14
@Rob he probably wasn't measured properly hence he was mislead to believing he's under 6'3". I doubt he measured himself several times to check. From all the evidence, a full 6'3" should be given to him here.
gb says on 15/Apr/14
The height listed at the top of the page is correct. Tom is 6ft2.75
Moe says on 15/Apr/14
Wait a minute, so regardless of whether or not you guys have actually met a celebrity in real life, you'll go on their imdb page and switch their height to what you "feel" it is, as opposed to what you actually "know" it to be? Sheesh!
[Editor Rob: i don't quite understand your comment.

Sayour's height on his own resume is 6ft 2 (see Stunt Canada, it includes dimensions like height/weight/suit size, chest etc). The kind of dimensions that are important to match up stuntmen with actors etc.

Someone pointed out he had a trivia listing of 6ft 3 on imdb. Anybody can alter trivia on the site, although in this case it is actually a correction since 6ft 2 is on Chris' own resume.]
the shredder says on 13/Apr/14
Rob , how tall is actor Peter Greene? He was taller than Denis Leary in Judgement Night .
[Editor Rob: I have that sitting in a pile to rewatch, I mean he can look 6ft 2-3 range]
John says on 12/Apr/14
Lol, good job Rob. Still believe in the pic with Chris Sayour that camera angle favors him slightly. It's also a rare occasion where Tom's posture isn't perfect. That and the fact we can't see their footwear make me incredulous that this pic discredits Tom's height claims.
[Editor Rob: well almost 6ft 3 is still a decent shout for Welling. Tom in general seems to hold good posture.]
Editor Rob says on 12/Apr/14
"John says on 9/Apr/14
On IMDB Chris Sayour is listed as 6'3 which makes more sense to me. In the pic with him and Welling he does look slightly taller but I believe the angle favored him a little. If Chris is 6'3 that could make Tom very close to that mark"

Don't worry, I fixed that back to 6ft 2 on Imdb for you!
Andrea says on 11/Apr/14
If you say so...
Andrea says on 11/Apr/14
What do you mean he's not 6'3 here? I dont know how tall was/is Denis Leary, i'm just saying he doesn't look 6'1.25 at all next to Tom... Kevin Costner too, he's not looking 6'1 and i have no doubts he was a solid 6'1 when younger... Still looks near it today!
[Editor Rob: I think Tom has the best posture there, 6ft 1 leary and almost 6ft 3 tom still seems ok. ]
Andrea says on 11/Apr/14
Rob, new pic with Denis Leary and Kevin Costner:
Click Here
He's almost 6'3? That's ok but the other guys don't look their listed height ;)
[Editor Rob: well he's not 6ft 3 here, I'm sure Leary was about 6ft 1-1.5 in 90's, like Demolition Man, I think he had a scene with Benjamin Bratt and was a little smaller.]
John says on 9/Apr/14
On IMDB Chris Sayour is listed as 6'3 which makes more sense to me. In the pic with him and Welling he does look slightly taller but I believe the angle favored him a little. If Chris is 6'3 that could make Tom very close to that mark.
Balrog says on 8/Apr/14
No CelebLifts. He's legit 190cm, not out bed. Accept it.
John says on 7/Apr/14
I fully accept Tom is slightly under 6'3, however I don't believe he's a flat 6'2 either.
CelebLifts says on 7/Apr/14
Even when Tom himself said he's not 6'3. He said "almost" in 2001 and said it again in 2014. He hasn't measured wrong. "Almost" is his best measurement, out of bed. Accept it.
John says on 6/Apr/14
My mistake on the stunt doubles. With that said I still don't think one pic is enough proof to disregard the preponderance of the evidence that supports a near 6'3 Welling.
Andrea says on 6/Apr/14
Same thing with Connor, then. If it was a couple of mm, he wouldn't bother saying he's a bit under 5'11 and even more with Gina, who does claim half an inch under 5'7. She really must have measured 5'6.5 or maybe a little above that, if she went out with that claim! Only a crazy woman would claim 5'6.5 if she actually is 5'7! Always a chance she didnt measure in the right way, but this happen for everyone... Especially those who are not obsessed with height ;) Not the best photo, but i think the height chart could be realistic: Click Here He does look well over 6'4 in whatever shoes, even if i'm conscious he could have some camera advantage...
Andrea says on 6/Apr/14
Yeah, Rob, he does look about an inch shorter than Jared, no more though. And Jared could be a bit over 6'4, i wouldn't be surprised! He also does look at least 3 inches taller than Jensen to me. So it's really hard to think he's much under 6'3. What G would guess him at? 6'5? And i still don't get why those people i nominated (and others) still get the "full" mark, despite their claim of being under it.
[Editor Rob: Connor's hair under, well, I think it is about that - a few mm shy. Welling's almost I suppose you could argue isn't as specific and if it was a couple mm he is talking about, I doubt he really would bother saying almost.

As for Gina, I just felt she looked more 5ft 7 than 6.5, unless I underestimated her heels, but I don't think I did.]
Balrog says on 5/Apr/14
Balrog2 can you choose another username?
CelebLifts says on 5/Apr/14
John, Look at your own post, no clue at all. The stunt double in the Kane picture is Chris Webb not Chris Sayour. Chris Sayour is a 6'2 guy. Fail

Andrea - Stop with the self righteous attitude. That picture with Lewis Hamilton, Lewis has bigger shoes than Tom Cruise. That explains why Lewis looks a tad taller.

Now the picture with Tom with Sayour, Tom and Sayour are both in the Smallville attire, both side by side, both wearing exact same item, both wearing exact same footwear, those big Timberland type boots that he wears with that attire, it's a on set picture the ground looks even no advantage either way. 2 pictures of Sayour and Tom not 1 and in both pictures Sayour is taller, only a tad but still he's taller. This is more proof than any nonsense you've gave, Andrea. This is a picture where they're BOTH wearing the exact same clothing and footwear. The pictures you keep posting are 2 people with completely different footwear.
Andrea says on 5/Apr/14
And yeah, John, i wouldn't be surprised if was wearing birkenstocks... I spot some scenes where he was wearing them on Smallville!
Look at these: Click Here Click Here
He is not a guy who cares about height at all. Then you have some celebrities on here who claimed to be under a mark but still got the "full height". Connor Trinneer claimed to be a hair under 5'11 but still gets listed at 5'11! Again Gina Bellman did claim 5'6.5 but gets listed at 5'7! Rob said only a madman would claim "almost 6'3" when he's actually over it. I kinda agree with him but even those people would be madmen... Rob, how much shorter would you say Tom looks in this video against Jared Padalecki? Click Here I'd say about an inch, no more. Considering Jared is a strong 6'4, i doubt Tom is any less than this listing.
[Editor Rob: in the video the almost 6ft 3 looks sensible to me for his claim, I think you can safely rule out a 6ft 4 tom as he's visibly a good inch smaller than jared.]
Andrea says on 5/Apr/14
1) The stunt double is reported at 6'2? Even Ryan Mcpartlin is listed at 6'3 and got described as a 6'2 guy on Chuck. So what? He's only 6'2-6'3? Nope. Rob met him and he said he's no less than 6'4!
2) How are those pictures supposed to be a proof? They are outside, we don't know footwear, etc. Don't get what i'm saying? Here you go: Click Here I guess Gosling's gotta be 5'9 max, right? Or this: Click Here Lewis Hamilton was measured 171, he does have shoe disadvantage and still looks taller than Tom Cruise. Judging from this pic and other pics you can find on the net, Tom Cruise would be 5'6 max. Is he really? I doubt :)
John says on 5/Apr/14
Look it up yourself, that is Chris Sayour in the pic with Tom and Kane. Once again your own post is your undoing.
[Editor Rob: is it not chris webb?]
John says on 5/Apr/14
You can't base your opinion on one single pic. You can't see their feet and Tom is notorious for wearing Birkinstocks behind the scenes. You have no proof the stuntman doesn't have the footwear advantage. In both pics the camera angle slightly favors the stuntman as well. Your proof is thin at best.
[Editor Rob: Tom has camera advantage with that other stuntguy beside Kane, how much he gains is hard to tell, but his head is 5 inches further forward]
CelebLifts says on 4/Apr/14
John, that picture you're talking about is a different stunt double. His face is completely different of the guy photo I posted. The stunt double in the photo I linked is a 6'2 stunt double.
Balrog2 says on 4/Apr/14
The stunt double height is reported as 187cm-188cm:
Click Here
Click Here

In this picture he looks a tad taller than Welling himself.
Click Here

This is not an evidence of course, many details are out of the image, but still it gives a hint.
John says on 4/Apr/14
Upon further review of your own post there is a pic with Kane in it where Tom is taller however the perspective is bit skewed but not enough to account for the disparity. Your own post compromises the validity of your argument.
Balrog2 says on 4/Apr/14
Sorry, didn't notice this name was already used.
John says on 4/Apr/14
I've see a photo with this same stunt double and
Kane from the episode Combat. Unlike this photo that's outside on possible uneven ground it's indoors and on likely even ground and Tom is clearly taller. One dubious photo does not make for a strong case.
Balrog says on 4/Apr/14
I'm the real Balrog and I always have stated that Welling could be a full 6'3"
Balrog says on 4/Apr/14
Rob, the last comment of "Balrog" wasn't me, someone is using my name.
[Editor Rob: it changed to balrog2]
Andrea says on 4/Apr/14
Didn't see those photos o.O They are shocking to me!!!
He really does look 6'1.5-6'1.75 tops with that guy! I'm starting to think he really might have claimed his height in shoes! Maybe he's almost 6'3, WITH shoes on? He could be a new member for the "G Club", together with Ben Affleck, Will Smith, Sly, Cruise and many other celebrities! Rob, would you consider a downgrade to 6'2? He really doesnt look over that mark!
CelebLifts says on 4/Apr/14
Oh give it a rest troll. You have no proof Tom is 6'2.75. Just cause Tom says he's almost 6'3, he could mean 6'2.5 by that statement or he could be lying full stop even being in 6'2 range. Stop being self righteous all the time. Take a look at this photo of Tom with his 6'2 flat double, His 6'2 flat double his taller than Tom in this photo: Click Here

Do you see 0.75 on that 6'2 guy? I don't. I see Tom a tad shorter than his 6'2 flat double in every photo.

This proves that 6'1.75 is questionable for Tom. Celebs lie all the time, Tom's no different. Deal with it.
Andrea says on 4/Apr/14
Balrog, 6'2 is completely ruled out for him. He does look "noticeably" taller than legit 6'2 guys, he really could be a guy who measured solid 190 at his worst part of the day, after running around the world for 10 times with superspeed! Werent you the guy who thought he could be a full 6'3?
John says on 3/Apr/14
I doubt he is a flat 6'2, more likely near 6'3 hence the claim. I believe he once measured at that height and reports it honestly.
Balrog says on 3/Apr/14
I think that last interview sets definitely a conclusion to Welling's max height estimate.

Stll, I have doubts he is actually close to 6'3". I'd say more likely flat 6'2".
Andrea says on 3/Apr/14
You think that a Vin Diesel or a Justin Timberlake would have gone with "almost 6'3", if they were his height? They probably would claim crazy heights like 6'5 at his height xD
[Editor Rob: maybe they would have seen sense if they were taller, it is unlikely of course]
Andrea says on 3/Apr/14
Me too, i dont think its too tall. Why should he say that then? Even his costars always mention it... Maybe, people dont realize how tall a real 6'3 is! I am sure that, if all measured, he would be taller than many actors who are listed on here at 6'3 or over! "Honesty" doesnt pay back because if he just went out with 6'3 or even 6'4, you would have given him no less than 6'3... No doubt! ;)
Andrea says on 2/Apr/14
Rob, here's a recent interview:
Click Here
He talks about being too tall for his job and he claims "almost 6'3" once again...
[Editor Rob: it's good he still remembers to check his celebheight listing ;)

I don't think near enough 6ft 3 is too tall. Maybe it has lost him some roles, but think about the 5ft 6 man, he is likely to lose or not even be considered for a lot of roles.]
Andrea says on 27/Mar/14
Rob, how much difference there is?
bit.ly/OYGra1
Go at about 4:30... I know that's not the best scene, we don't know footwear, etc... But i'm curious to see what you think.
[Editor Rob: there appears about 2 inches]
Andrea says on 25/Mar/14
Rob, just to give you an idea how girls are good on guessing heights... I asked a girl who met both Tom and The Rock who was taller... She said The Rock is taller at 6'5 and Tom a bit shorter at 6'3... xD
The funny thing is that Tom would probably be taller than The Rock!
Lorne says on 14/Mar/14
In Jared's case it is noticeable because he is always with Jared, who himself is near enough 6 feet. A lot of people would already consider Jensen tall, so the big 6'4 Jared comes off as huge. Levi wears converse a lot and is around tall people, and his posture isn't as immaculate as Tom's, but without a doubt, Tom gives a bigger impression.(And Smallvilles cast isn't tiny, I mean John is supposedly just a quarter inch under Zach Levi...)
Andrea says on 13/Mar/14
Yeah, on Supernatural he gets many "comments" on his height, he gets called Big Foot, Giraffe, Giant, huge guy,... Thats an example of a very solid 6'4 guy... And yeah, he would be noticeably taller than Segel, who's not 6'4!
Balrog says on 12/Mar/14
Padalecki also gets a lot of comments about his height in the show. Same thing with Jason Segel in How I Met Your Mother and I'm sure he is shorter than Jared.
Andrea says on 12/Mar/14
Yeah, Rob. Here Baldwin talks about that:
bit.ly/1nMHypq
Andrea says on 11/Mar/14
It was just a curiosity... I asked it because Tom Welling is supposed to be under 6'3 and everybody, short or tall, always comments that he's very tall, huge, etc... And please don't say that's just because he's Superman. 6'3 is pretty tall but it's not that crazy height... Same thing with Jared... It's strange that Levi costars never mention it, maybe because they're tall too?
[Editor Rob: at the 2 cons about chuck I went to there was talk about height by other cast, mentioning how tall the show was, the 2 girls being tall aswell as the 3 main guys.]
Balrog says on 11/Mar/14
I've heard comments about Levi's height. Don't get the point tough, so if Levi doesn't get comments about his height he's shorter than Welling? That's no sense to me.
[Editor Rob: if you are a fan of someone and read enough interviews and pay attention you would likely see much more talk about height.

Levi will still get a lot of talk, but he's surrounded by Baldwin and McPartlin, he isn't as standout, Padalecki has a good 4 inches on Jensen, he's a standout in the show, he might get more comments because he looks 6ft 4 in person aswell.]
Andrea says on 10/Mar/14
Levi is the star of the show :)
Andrea says on 10/Mar/14
Rob, just a question: why people like Welling or Padalecki do get so many comments about their height and people like Levi or Mcpartlin, who are supposed to be even taller than them, dont?
[Editor Rob: McPartlin does get comments in person about his height, but he's not really the star of a show like those 2...]
Mr Bond says on 9/Mar/14
He's 6'2.5 inches.....
the shredder says on 9/Mar/14
Pam seemed 5'8.5 or maybe 5'9 to me , but her dress was too long to see if she had heels.
Andrea says on 8/Mar/14
Talking about Smallville, the strange thing is that they try everything to reduce Tom's height... I mean, he's Superman, shouldn't they "enhance" his height? If you notice, when he speaks to other costars they always use low angles which favour other people, there are just few shots where you can see how tall he really is. I remember some scenes with Rosenbaum, where he looks a just a bit taller than him, when he is noticeably taller in reality...
Andrea says on 8/Mar/14
Yeah, i saw that... I thought he could have been near 182, just because he looked a bit shorter than Matthew Fox on Lost, who's supposed to be 6'2... But i also said he did look more than 2 inches shorter than Holloway, who's no less than 6'1...
Lorne says on 8/Mar/14
And Lo, go check out Henry Ian Cusick, turns out he's barely 179cm!!!
Lorne says on 8/Mar/14
Nice find Rob! I've wondered what his double would be, never thought to look at stuntman. I think the listing looks pretty much spot on with him, but the pics are outside. I still say no less than 190(or 189.7 to be exact) but, do no nonetheless believe his claim.
Lo sgozzatore says on 8/Mar/14
To be fair, they're all outiside photos... I remember Hamilton looking taller than Cruise (who probably has more shoes) but still getting listed at 5'7.75... You say the ground could be not flat, here even more :) Anyway, he does look slighly taller than the stuntman in these pics, i agree.
Andrea says on 7/Mar/14
It's like Tom's picture... I'm not certain on footwear, but i'm quite sure she's not in sneakers but still look way shorter than him...
Btw, how tall you think he looks here?
bit.ly/PaHJzn
[Editor Rob: well look at Tom with Double who Is 6ft 2 on Stunts Canada.

that's about enough for me...his own stunt double was 6ft 2 in early seasons!]
Andrea says on 7/Mar/14
Btw, Tom and Pam on Smallville:
bit.ly/1lG9f4O
I doubt she's not wearing heels in this shot and she still looks noticeably shorter than Tom...
[Editor Rob: shredder had met Pam, Here although wasn't certain on ffootwear.]
Andrea says on 7/Mar/14
Yeah, you have Pam Grier who claimed almost 5'7 but gets listed at 5'7.75... Maybe it was a mistake, in fact it's a written interview (no video)... Maybe he claimed almost 6'4? Not saying he is... He might be a fraction over 6'3 and not bother saying it, so he just goes with "about 6'3"? But, yeah, we should measure him to be sure. And noway he wears lifts, i noticed that in many scenes in high school he wears birkenstocks (can put the photos if you want), so he's not a guy who wants to appear as-tall-as-possible like RDJ, Sly or Vin Diesel. He just doesn't care about it. Alaina Huffman told me on twitter that he looked 6'4 to her, even though it's just an opinion, i know...
[Editor Rob: I think Pam claimed 5ft 8.5 aswell...her claims have varied, to be fair in the movie she did with seagal 5ft 8 is probably nearer than the almost 5ft 7]
Balrog says on 25/Feb/14
Well, that's true but there a people listed here higher than their own claim. Still there is a chance he drops a full inch like you said.
Balrog says on 23/Feb/14
Rob sometimes there are confussion on the metrical system and 6'3'' is exactly 190.5, but you always see 6'3'' (191cm) because they round up. It's possible he got measured at 190 - 190.5 and thought he is almost 6'3'', because 6'3'' is 191cm. Well, still can't see him under this. He is a guy like Nicholas Hoult, they cannot be under 190cm.
[Editor Rob: I think if you were getting measure in America, most would be calling or looking at the inches mark. Of course many would know about cm, but it's still pretty much feet/inches on stadiometers/tapes.]
Balrog says on 22/Feb/14
Rob, you think Welling might have worn lifts in Smallville? And in real life? I think there is a chance he could be a full 6'3'' guy.
[Editor Rob: I still believe he was measured almost 6ft 3, only a madman would come out with that saying if he was really measured 6ft 3. Maybe he drops a full inch and goes from 192 range to nearly 190 at worst?]
Dietmar says on 16/Feb/14
"Lo sgozzatore says on 21/Nov/13
Btw, if you look a Zachary Levi next to Jared Padalecki, there's more difference than Tom next to the same Jared. And Zachary gets listed at a strong 6'3 on here..."

Difference between Zach and Jared aint so big. Keep in mind that Zach is in converse (as usual) in this shot, while Jared is wearing 1-1,5in shoes.

Click Here

What comes to that famous pic where Jared dwarfs Tom, did you know that Jared was standing on a box? The director has revealed it was Tom's idea. Jared is only about 1 inch taller than Tom in real life. That's why the box.

I still believe Zach is slightly taller than Tom. Maybe just few mm.
Josh says on 13/Feb/14
Definitely 6'3 and a huge dude. in almost everything ive seen him in he edges out legit 6'2 guys like Justin Hartley and Alan Ritchson by and inch or more. Obviously could look 6'4 with shoes on. but 6'3 is on the money, could be a little more but nothing less
IR says on 11/Feb/14

CelebLifts says on 1/Feb/14
Rob by all means you can stop Lorne from arguing, I'm getting sick of it myself.
Lorne says on 1/Feb/14
You banned Andrea? Why? I thought he just left, he does that sometimes. If you did, please let him back:) Anyway, I'm sorry Rob, I'll just ignore him, he's talking nonsense anyway. I apologize for taking it this far, I doubt anyone anyone seriously thinks Lo and myself are the same anyway.
CelebLifts says on 31/Jan/14
"And I never said he was 6'3, I said it is possible," How is it possible when Tom himself said "almost"
OH MY GOD I cannot believe the **** I'm reading, how dumb lol.

The "only" person here who's aggressive is you. You've been arguing here a full year, seriously don't you have something else to do other than trolling?
Defending a guy and getting all worked up about a guy you will never know all cause you have a weird freaky crush on him. Pathetic and very sad in a worrying disturbing way.

No **** your favourite poster is yourself. It's no brainier you used software to use 2 different ip addresses to fool Rob. All the crap is still the same tho, you can't change your way of thinking ;)
[Editor Rob: can we drop this argument. I will happily let Andrea back on here to argue indefinitely that Welling is taller than he claims...although maybe not, he's managing to take his Welling discussion to other places :)]
Lorne says on 31/Jan/14
Rob already told you I'm not Lo/Andrea. He is a long time poster from Italy, who hasn't posted in a while. And I never said he was 6'3, I said it is possible, which based on how he looks all the time, he is. If you are still having trouble comprehending that, I can't help you. @Avi: 189cm is too low, but I do believe he measured a small fraction under 6'3. The question is how much? 6ft2.75 is fair, it makes sense. Celeblifts and his posse are strangely aggressive, but if you scroll down, I never said he was 6'3, though he certainly looks it. And one last thing Celeblifts, I believe you are just trolling, but if you really think I'm Andrea, ask Rob again, and he'll tell you AGAIN, I am not. But since Lo never said Tom was 6'5 it is just clear trolling. Kind of surprised Rob keeps letting you post this nonsense. In fact, you have probably drove Lo Sg off with your nonsense, which sucks, because he is one of my favorite posters!!!
[Editor Rob: yes Lorne is not Andrea]
avi says on 30/Jan/14
@Lorne

He is probably almost 6'3 . Many 6'2.5 guys can look 6'3 . Some can even look 6'1! Depends..
CelebLifts says on 29/Jan/14
I know Ash, he's a sad troll posting under different names.

Lorne - Tom has made no claim, he said almost which could mean any height under 6'3.
You say you give Tom his claim, but than you say you think he's 6'3 lol dumb.

I used my height as an example of I know what I'm talking about as you was saying Tom was as high as 6'5 lol. Why you feel the constant need keep telling everyone your American and from Atlanta , this is a topic about height not a dating site. Nobody cares.


You said you're done? Please don't hurry back ;)
Lorne says on 28/Jan/14
Dude seriously, your starting to irritate me. As Rob said, I am AMERICAN. Andrea/Lo Sg is Italian. Can you grasp that? And I never accused you of having multiple names, friend. You've been posting for quite a while. And for the last damn time, I (cautiously) give Tom his claim, his 190cm, but I think it's a case where he could be the full 6'3. Anyway, I'm done explaining this. This is a forum for celebrity height, nothing else. If patrolling Tom's board and proclaiming your height is an "accomplishment" gets you by, so be it. BTW, reading old comments, and a year ago you said "no way" Tom was 188cm. What happened!?! (And Lo Sg hasn't even been here since Xmas, so insulting him is just illogical, since he's not even here.)
Ash says on 28/Jan/14
CelebLifts, so true this guy Lo/Andrea/Lorne changes his name constantly and says actors listed here from 6'2-6'4 range are much shorter and Tom is much taller than all these guys. He says Hugh Jackman who's 6'2 is really 6'1 flat. He says Ashton who's 6'3 is below 6'2, and A legit 6'4 guy like Liam Neeson is much shorter.

Its funny that he says other people are changing his name when its just him.......
CelebLifts says on 28/Jan/14
It's not crap, Gambler. You eat poor you will not grow fully. Having proper meals is very important for growth during childhood and teenage years.
CelebLifts says on 28/Jan/14
Lorne? You female? 16? You're very rude telling me to chill out when you first accused me of having multiple names. I knew I was right tho, so obvious saying the same **** for 2 years. I owned you before. I knew no way Andrea would leave Tom alone, the kid is obsessed with Tom.

Anyway Lorne/lo/Andrea Tom isn't 6'3 so you might as well stop coming up with excuses and bringing up other actors claims is not proof of anything. Just accept your crush isn't 6'3.
Gambler says on 27/Jan/14
That's quite a load of crap, CelebLifts. Maybe 1% of your height potential is within your control, the rest of it, is genetic background and luck. Period.
Lorne says on 27/Jan/14
@Balrog: good point. That would be a plausible explanation. It could also be he was 190.1-2 or something. To me, if you clear the 190cm mark, at your lowest, then you are 6'3, and should be listed as such. 6ft3 is exactly 190.5cm; 190cm is around 6ft2.81. 190.2 is 6ft2 7/8ths, if that is your evening height, you should be listed 6ft3, because otherwise putting someone 190.2cm at 6ft2.75 would be putting them less than what they would ever measure. Get what I'm saying? I can believe his claim, but as Rob said, we could be talking a few mm. And not every guy is obsessed with height; Look at Chris Pine, claiming 6ft when he could be 6ft0.75, and not less than 6ft0.5
Lorne says on 27/Jan/14
Thank you Rob. Yes, I am American. From Atlanta, if you must know :) Lo Sg/Andrea is very much a different poster, thought he doesn't use the names interchangeably, he changed from Andrea to Lo Sg long ago. Speaking of which, if you read this Lo, return!!! But seriously celeblifts, chill out. And I AGREE WITH THIS LISTING. Understand? I give Tom his own claim, "almost" 6'3, the same as Rob. But I wouldn't be shocked if he was the full 6ft3...
CelebLifts says on 26/Jan/14
Actually I did achieve my height from the genes of my parents and God also guided me by supplying me with proper meals. You are in control of reaching your max height, so yes it is an achievement I reached my height by eating right, working out keeping my posture great, I'm very proud of my achievement ;) It's only natural
for people who don't have that achievement to say it's not an achievement. People just don't like what they don't have. Sad truth :(
CelebLifts says on 25/Jan/14
Lorne everybody knows that you use another name, lo sgozzatire and ANDREA. You think me, ash and penguin25 are the same person cause we don't agree with you? Lol rob will tell you we all have different ip addresses in different locations. I take it you're not used to people disagreeing with you.
Tom has never said he is 6'3. Tom said "I'm almost 6'3" and "about 6'3". Saying "about" means he's close to it but not quite. 6'3 guys don't say "about" I don't say "about". Tom has said this more than once so he didn't measure wrong. Stop making **** up to try look right. It's highlighted at top of the page what Tom said. Thank you.
[Editor Rob: I don't think Lorne is from Italy, but America.]
Balrog says on 25/Jan/14
Is just that 6'3" isn't 191cm is 190.5 exactly so maybe Welling got measured at 190.5 and said almost six three thinking that 6'3" is 191cm...
Arch Stanton says on 25/Jan/14
Speaking for myself I scratch my head not at somebody saying they're proud of being tall or whatever but more that they seem to think that being tall and 6'3" would suddenly make their lives perfect, regardless of many other attributes. I think there's something rather worrying about people who think that being tall is the only thing that matters or indeed that tall men have life easy simply because they're above average in height.
Arch Stanton says on 25/Jan/14
[Editor Rob: that's one term I scratch my head at, the 'proud of xxx'

I believe we should be proud of achievements, not some uncontrollable elements that we are born with - genetic background, height, hair colour, eye colour or country of origin.]

Yeah that's what Stephen Merchant said, he said the way people talk about his height to him as if it's this huge achievement and "congratulations for getting up there" sort of thing and he finds it ridiculous that people talk about it like that. There is of course nothing wrong with being comfortable and happy in your own skin and liking what you're born with but I don't think many people really consider themselves perfect and make the best of what they've got and try to achieve something. The world will always be uneven and some people naturally are born with better attributes than others, but there's no use dwelling too much on it. I'm sure Welling has some things he'd like to change about himself too.
jordydecke says on 25/Jan/14
@Rob I agree with you on the 'proud of' term. It's not like you achieved your height. Sure it's fine to be content or pleased with your height, but proud is a funny expression indeed.
[Editor Rob: yeah, having feelings about height is natural.

Unfortunately a lot of people have a mindset that includes heightist attitudes. We challenge attitudes towards sexism and racism, but heightism seems to be a subject which gets little attention.]
jonas says on 25/Jan/14
Tom is slightly shorter than 191cm listed John Schneider so 190 seems fair.
Lorne says on 24/Jan/14
I'm sorry, but I think someone is using multiple names... And 190cm is "almost" 6'3, not everyone feels the need to boast about they're height. He has claimed 6'3 as well, so you could say he did measure that mark. I agree with this listing, but I wouldn't at all be surprised if he was nearer 191 on the stadiometer...
CelebLifts says on 24/Jan/14
Balrog - That's cause Rob just puts what he wants. If an actor says he's under 6'3 than he's being 100% honest. No 6'3 guy would downgrade themself to 6'2 cause when you're at that range in height it's a very good thing. I'm 6'3.25 and if I was going to lie about my height I would upgrade to 6'4 not downgrade myself. Why would Tom downgrade his height? He wouldn't lol. No guy when they are around that height lowers it, it's an ego thing and guys when they're tall are proud of their height. For a guy to be 6'2 or 6'3 you're blessed as it's the perfect height. Short guys like 5'8 or 5'9 don't care about the truth cause what's the difference? They're both short heights for a man they will never be big.
[Editor Rob: that's one term I scratch my head at, the 'proud of xxx'

I believe we should be proud of achievements, not some uncontrollable elements that we are born with - genetic background, height, hair colour, eye colour or country of origin.]
Ash says on 23/Jan/14
Why would a guy claim to be almost 6'3? If your 6'2.8-9 you would easily claim 6'3. A few millimeters is not even noticable. The people that I feel look more 6'3 in here are Kutcher, Routh, and Reddick. They all would be taller than Tom.
penguinboy25 says on 22/Jan/14
Agree with CelebLifts. I don't understand why there's a debate. HIS WORDS tell us he's under 6'3. Did you ever think the ones who claim 6'1 or 6'1.5 are actually only 6'0.5 and lying? To me he always looks about as listed on this website.
CelebLifts says on 22/Jan/14
He doesn't edge out Justin Hartley with ease, fact you need a very good trained eye to see a difference between them!
I think 6'2.75 is too high for Tom, 6'2.5 more realistic. You people on here are confused and going with what you see... Which is Tom in footwear. No doubt Tom is more than 6'3 with shoes on.
Tom looks about 6'4 in 1.5 inch Timberlands, so that puts him at 6'2.5 barefoot .He also looks a good 2 inches shorter than 6'4.5 Jared which also backs up what I'm saying.
Balrog says on 21/Jan/14
CelebLifts, there are some celeb on here that are listed higher than his own claim.

Eg: Lance Reddick, Geoff Stults, Paul Gaiscoigne, Chris Pine, etc.
[Editor Rob: gazza opened a whosay page (well I say he, whoever with his authority did) and put down 5ft 8.

of course in person the guy is a strong 5ft 9.]
D.Kelly182cm says on 21/Jan/14
If not 6'3 he's definitely not 6'2.75. He's 6'2.8-9 at least. Tom consistently edges out 6'1"/2" s with 'ease', which is hard to do when everyone don't wear same footwear. He needs an upgrade.
CelebLifts says on 17/Jan/14
Look, Tom himself said "I'm almost 6'3" so stop with the 6'3 or 6'3.25 crap, it really looks sad hyping up someone you don't know. He's not 6'3, words from him. Deal with it.
Lorne says on 16/Jan/14
100% with Rampage. With Welling's posture, he could(and would) be mistaken for 6ft4, even by people who don't suck with height. 192.5 morning is quite possible, and not less than 190cm evening. Perhaps he really was measured 20 years old at 189.5-190, and grew a few mm? Will likely never know, but always a chance Rob will meet him.(Maybe Shredd will see him in the phantom zone? Perhaps that's where Andrea has gone, in search of the truth!!!)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 15/Jan/14
Nah, 189cm is undercutting him. He edges out both Justin Hartley and Alan Ritchson who are at least 188cm. I agree w/h Lorne, 190cm is the absolute lowest for Welling and thats probably at the end of the day. He could easily be mistaken for 6ft4, which I'd say he's just within a few millimetres of when he wakes up.

The full 6ft3 is very possible, IMO.
D.Kelly182cm says on 13/Jan/14
He definitely looks taller but 6 ft 2.75 inches should be right on the money.
avi says on 3/Jan/14
penguinboy25 says on 10/Oct/13
Looks as listed with 6'1 Colin Hanks. Appears to have him by an inch and some change.

Yeah Colins legs are apart so there would be maybe 1.5 tops difference.
Balrog says on 28/Dec/13
I still think he's the full 6'3"
Lenad is sexy says on 28/Dec/13
bare min 189cm
Lorne says on 24/Dec/13
The interviewer has to be 6'1, I think you could reasonably guess him 186cm. Tom looks nothing less than 191cm, which he always does, and certainly looks taller than Liev and Affleck. No way in hell he's less than 190cm, when he measured "under 6'3" it literally had to be 6ft2.8-9 or something stupid like that, and after hours on his feet...
Yaspaa says on 14/Dec/13
Looked taller than everyone else in Parkland.
dmeyer says on 11/Dec/13
Rob the interviewer look similar to Affleck a hair taller than 6'1 brosnan and 1.25-1.5 under liev 6'1.5 is closer
Gambit says on 11/Dec/13
I'm with Rob on this one. I'll go even further: Welling has great posture in almost all pics (see for yourself). He looks absolutely tall but not 'huge'. Between 6ft2 and 6ft3 seems perfectly accurate.
Sam says on 11/Dec/13
I think the interviewer's 6'1" and Welling's obviously taller than the other interview subjects photographed...Schreiber's the next tallest, might be a half inch shorter than Welling, Affleck a full inch, and so on.
Lo sgozzatore says on 10/Dec/13
I was actually saying the opposite, Rob... That Welling could be underestimated or he looks taller than this just because other people are overestimated! I don't know, maybe he's just an honest guy who seems taller amongst liars... But then again, you met guys like James Marsters and you said he's no less than 175, when in reality he looks 174 tops next to a 190 Welling... Yeah, he himself claimed this "almost 6'3", which make you think "Why should he say almost 6'3? He's gotta have been measured that"... I think, yeah, he very likely measured a bit under the 6'3 but we don't know how that measurement was taken. Maybe he measured that at 17 and then grew a bit more? Maybe he just got measured wrong? Or maybe he really is this height! Who knows? One thing is sure: he clearly looks taller than strong 6'2 guys like Aubry or Hartley and doesn't look shorter than a John Schneider, who still gets listed at 6'3. About his claim, i remember that girl you met, Gina Bellman, who claimed to be 5'6.5 (i'd say a very precise height, like Tom's claim) but you listed her at 5'7 anyway! So you are sure she's taller than her claim. So, why should she claim to be 5'6.5 when she's taller? I am sure that claim comes from a measurement. You could think the same way with Tom... Whether he is under 6'3 or not, his claim is not a "limit", if you know what i mean...
[Editor Rob: I'm sure at some point he did measure shy of 6ft 3, but a genuine 6ft 3 in Hollywood is stand out, and a guy like Welling I don't see him slouching much, he seems to be able to maintain a strong stance.]

Still think he's just 184? Two cases: or all these guys are overestimated on here or Welling is taller than this
[Editor Rob: I don't think Welling is overlisted, he's listed close enough to what he claimed himself.

The interviewer can look 6ft 1 range in those photos]
Lo sgozzatore says on 8/Dec/13
Well, his 187 listing makes sense if you look at him with Colin Firth, who still gets listed listed at 187 on here: Click Here
He actually looks a bit taller there...
He also looks taller than Jason Lewis, who's 184 on here:
Click Here
He also looks easily 5 inches taller than Jackson Rathbone, who's wearing cowboy boots: Click Here
Btw, he kinda reminds me of Obama, they probably are pretty close even in height...
Lo sgozzatore says on 8/Dec/13
Rob, how tall is the guy who interviews him in this video?
Click Here
He gets listed at 187 on the net, dont think he's that tall but after having a look at some pics, i'd say he does look a tall guy, maybe between 6'0 and 6'1...
Here's the same guy with Zac Efron:
Click Here
I think i can safely say Tom is at least 2.5 inches taller than him...
[Editor Rob: he might be 184 range, but 187 I think is a bit optimistic.]
Ash says on 4/Dec/13
Lo sgozzatore yeah you believe Tom Welling is 6'5...... You think Hugh Jackman is 6'1 when he's 6'2. You also believe Ashton is below 6'2 when he's 6'3. All your evidence is opinionated. Don't know your deal you don't base your claims on facts but just bias on wheter you like the celebrity.
Linebacker28 says on 1/Dec/13
This newer listing sounds right, but 6'2.5" wasn't too shabby either. Throughout Smallville, I thought he could range anything from a solid 6'2" to a strong 6'3", depending on the footwear. Regardless, an undoubtedly tall man, who truly looked the part of a young Clark Kent... Seriously should have been a strong candidate for that Man of Steel. Maybe he grew tired and wanted to venture into new territory. But I digress. Hope his career is going well for him; seems like a great guy.
Lo sgozzatore says on 21/Nov/13
Btw, if you look a Zachary Levi next to Jared Padalecki, there's more difference than Tom next to the same Jared. And Zachary gets listed at a strong 6'3 on here...
Lo sgozzatore says on 18/Nov/13
Yeah, but i don't think he would say that :)
I doubt he'd be able to say he looks shorter than a John Schneider in person!
And yeah, James Marsters is way shorter than him, even 5'9 seems too much if Welling is 190, there are pics where Welling has birkenstocks, Marsters normal shoes (i think, if he's not wearing lifts) and there's still a pretty big difference
Banner says on 18/Nov/13
Lorne, 189cm max means 189 or less. That would be a correct guess to me, because I give a weight to the part stating "or less". Nevertheless, that picture of Rob's is quite an evidence that Hartley is not 189cm at all. Once again this is just my ponderate opinion, I can't sell any undeniable truth.
CelebLifts says on 18/Nov/13
Nothing Rob says is a fact, just guess work what he thinks. It's only a fact if you measured them bare foot. Guessing somebody's bare foot height in shoes is silly.
Lorne says on 15/Nov/13
Then just so we're clear: If Rob met him and said he was 189cm max, you'd accept that?:) z(that be bad news for James Marsters, since he already looks 174 max with him)
Banner says on 14/Nov/13
Besides Rob's good will, he still is a man. He surely can have a better guess for people around his own height, meeting them in person.
I've noticed that most of the times one over estimates height of people taller than themselves.

So you can't just say "Rob's says that", that really is immature from you.
If you go on Hartley's page, you can see I've given a very precise explanation for my opinion. I'm not saying I can't be wrong, but for me that is the max precision I can give to my estimate.

This being said, judging on the many pictures and videos where we can compare Hartley's and Welling's heights, I would never, never, give Welling more than 0.5" over Hartley. This, plus my estimate on Hartley's height gives me the strong impression that Welling is really nothing more than 6'2.25", but I would really put him around 6'2".
Once again I'm not saying I can't be wrong, but this is really the max one can do with these materials, in my opinion.
Lo sgozzatore says on 14/Nov/13
I trust Rob so if he gives Hartley 6'2.25, he is no less than 6'2, even if he doesnt look it in the pic with him. Puctures on this site are relative since many of them don't show real heights. It is more important what Rob says. Sometimes it is very hard to know if someone is leaning or not. If Rob meets Tom and says he look shorter in person than a Kevin Sorbo or a Zachary Levi, then i'll accept that. Until then, the discussion is open!
Lorne says on 13/Nov/13
Yeah they are too far apart Lo, but Tom does look a giant! Wasn't Tom at 6'3, a long time ago? If I recall, when I first began Lurking( I didn't comment then) Ashmore was 5ft11.75, Rosenbaum I THINK was at 5ft11.5 at one point, and Tom at 6'3? I know some Smallvile cast got changed.
[Editor Rob: I think in 2005 he started at that.]
Banner says on 13/Nov/13
Even if Rob would meet him, this discussion wouldn't stop. For instance, the pic with Rob and Hartley shows clearly Hartley being nothing more than 8'1.5", many people agreeing with it, but still some others are arguing that's a proof for him to be 6'2.25". There is no way to close this discussions, unless the guy measures himself like Rob did.
Lo sgozzatore says on 12/Nov/13
One thing i'm sure of... If Tom just went with 6'3, Rob would have listed him no less than that! He'd be taller than 90% of guys listed at 6'3 on this site. I repeat: the only way to stop this discussion is that Rob meets him, it'd be very interesting to see what he says after meeting him.
KROC says on 11/Nov/13
@ Lo sgozzatore That picture isn't any better. Now Tom is closer to the camera. On top of that they are both seriously very far apart.
Balrog says on 11/Nov/13
No he was listed at 6'2.5", Lorne.
Lorne says on 10/Nov/13
The boots in that pic aren't that big, though at times he definently wore 1.5-1.6in, like in the red K ep with Rutger Hauer(whom he towered... no less than 3 inches, shocked me) but those boots in your pics are more typical. And Welling was originally listed 6ft3(190.5) here, and then a 1/4in was knocked off, to 190, based on his own claims.
PepsiCola says on 9/Nov/13
I mean big heel on his left shoe Click Here ,also look at his thick shoe bottom
PepsiCola says on 9/Nov/13
Here pic 1 with RedBack boots Click Here

pic 2 Click Here ,i don't know what kinda boots those are but damn look at that heel on his right shoe, pic 2 is from season 1 , but he is still a tall guy (190)
Lo sgozzatore says on 8/Nov/13
Btw, that pic with Colin Hanks is just a pic! Yeah, he looks about 6'2.5 tops if Colin is 6'1 but Colin is a bit closer to the camera...
Click Here
This is another picture, in different positions and Tom does look easily 6'3 range
CelebLifts says on 8/Nov/13
You class not agreeing with as an insult, well I will never agree with you Lorne/lo/ANDREA. You talk complete stupid thinking your opinion is the only fact. You really think 6'2.75 is his lowest measurement? Clearly ignoring facts said by Tom himself, almost 6'3 MAX not lowest. Who gives their lowest height?? Nobody. Pure stupid. John is taller than Tom. Tom's almost 6'3 and John is 6'3. TALLER. FACT. You think Tom is only 0.7 inch shorter than Jared. That speaks for itself how stupid and you're just Tom Tom Tom. To you Tom is much taller than guys not much shorter BUT not much shorter than guys who are much taller LOL do you see how stupid that sounds? Apparently NOT!

Your over estimates will not make him taller :)
Who cares what you think? I don't. You need to control your tantrums better.
I'm not going to waste any more time talking to a kid.

I just say thanks to Ash . You right it's pointless trying to get through to somebody that negative. And bulgyeyes you say 6'2.5 and you met Tom. Thanks for clarification. You proved my point.
Lorne says on 8/Nov/13
Yeah, I wasn't going to reply anyway, but then he starts making s$&@ up about you, I had to step in. Yeah, it's immaturity. Besides, anyone really saying minimum 191cm Schnieder and max 189 Tom cannot be taking seriously! So I'm done. Tom is 6'1, Schneider is 6'4, and Lo believes Tom is actually MINIMUM 6ft5. Happy? ;)
CelebLifts says on 8/Nov/13
You're sticking to facts? So at lowest you think Tom is 6'2.75? LOL. So in the many interviews Tom has done you think Tom is using his lowest height ???? You don't make sense. You want Tom to be 6'3 but he isn't. He said so himself. 6'3 guys don't say "almost" or "about" They say I'm 6'3 with confidence. There's no 100% fact on what that "almost" height is. That will only be proven once the world see him measured not your stupid opinion.I really sick of your bad attitude thinking your opinion is the right one and not listening to other peoples views unless they agree with you!
Lo sgozzatore says on 8/Nov/13
Thank you, Lorne. I'm not answering anymore since it's getting full of trolls on this page. Jackman in my opinion could be 6'1.5, he doesn't look a full 6'2 to me but i never said 6'1 flat! I only said that next to Lebron James he struggles to look 6'1 and that's true... Look at the pic and do tell me there are only 13 cms between them ;) About Tom, i never said he's 6'5 but let's make him believe i did so he's happy. The funny thing is that he believes John Schneider is taller than 6'3 when they are actually pretty close in height and i still think Tom might measure a bit taller than him! We can't do anything to change his mind since he's so immature, just read his posts. He insults with no reason anyone who disagrees with him. He believes Tom is max 6'2.5? Who cares? That doesn't change Tom's height.
Lorne says on 7/Nov/13
Ash: What are you talking about? Ashton at least 6'3! He wishes he was! Jackman could be 187 range, he looks that at times, I've never seen Lo claim 185cm for him! Your exaggerating a bit. And he never said 6'5 for Tom, come on! And as for my "crush", why don't you scroll down just a bit? I am the one who said Tom must have measured under 6'3, since has has implied such on 3 seperate occasion. I've even said 189.5 not impossible, but I can't see him that low. And I don't care what you think; I care about FACTS! Hartley is nothing less than 6'2, and surely a fraction over. Rob met him and has photo FACT. Tom is taller. FACT. If Tom was 6ft2.5. and Justin 6ft2.25, you would never be able to tell, especially since they both wear boots a lot. But you can see Tom is clearly taller. Come on, make sense. Like Balrog says, he was clearly taller than Ritchson, come on. I don't care, and should stop this, since you seem beyond reason and into insulting. I just am a stickler for facts. Oh, and have you met Welling? Or your 6ft4 hero John Schnieder???
CelebLifts says on 7/Nov/13
Thank you Ash! You're right, the guy is in denial and you further exposed Lo sgozzatore for what he is. He makes up his mind on which celeb he likes the best and thinks what he thinks is a fact lol. He thinks Hugh Jackman is 6'1? LMAO. He thinks Tom's as tall as Vince Vaughn too lol.

I remember Tom used to be listed here 6'2.5 until he kept crying to have him upgraded. That Colin Hanks picture really owned what he thinks HA. That guy is a legit strong 6'1.25 and Tom is 1 inch - 1.25 inch max taller. A real life picture is rock solid evidence. You can't use scenes from a tv show or movie as evidence cause of camera angles/height, camera tricks and props they use to make Tom (superman) appear as big as they can make him. That picture with Hanks is perfect proof Tom is not 6'2.75 or 6'3 or more like he thinks he is.

Fact proven. Case closed.
CelebLifts says on 6/Nov/13
Hey Lorne, have you met Tom? Didn't think so. Your opinion is invalid. No way Tom is 6'2.75 at worst if he claiming "almost" 6'3. He wouldn't measure himself just before bed, it be an morning or afternoon measurement most likely. Look at the picture with him standing next to legit 6'1 Colin Hanks, clearly you keep ignoring it. Tom only looks 1.25 inch taller not 1.75 inch. Tom looks a tad taller than 6'2.25 Justin, like 6'2.5 is a tad difference. If Tom was 6'2.75 he would look more than a tad taller than Justin.
98% of celebs lie about their heights. I've been to ALOT of conventions and met ALOT of celebs. They're always usually shorter in real life.

I think I know more how to judge heights than you! My facts are more real, yours are stupid based on a crush. TOM HAS SAID UNDER 6'3 MULTIPLE TIMES!!!! He's never said over 6'3 or 6'4 (CRAZY). Jared is at least 6'4 and Tom looked alot shorter. Arguing against those facts makes you look stupid. You can't go against his own words. He knows better than YOU. You obviously a massive Tom fan and to you nobody is taller than him.

"I don't care what you think" Oh yeah? Well stop repeating yourself, you sound like jive bunny. But yeah you obviously "do" otherwise you wouldn't keep trying to point your stupid opinion to me. Nothing you say will change facts that I feel are closer to the truth than the stupid things you come out with.
Ash says on 6/Nov/13
Lo sgozzatore you downgrade plenty celebrities here. You believe Hugh Jackman is 6'1 flat when he is strong 6'2. Hugh at 6'1 flat makes Christian Bale who's a legit 6'0 about 5'10.5 and Russell Crowe who's 5'10.5 about 5'9 flat.. You think Ashton is 6'2 flat when he's at least 6'3. Hes got 4 inches plus on 5'11.25 Sean William Scott and good 2 inches on 6'1 Costner. If he's 6'2 flat that makes Costner 6' 0 flat which is absurd. You even think Liam neeson is below 6'4. Oh but Tom has to be 6'5 hes soooo much taller than Hartley and Richardson when he's barely a hair taller than them. If this listing is at its worst than why was he barely an inch taller than 6'1 Colin Hanks? Face it your in denial CelebLifts proved you wrong you have nothing else to say.
Balrog says on 6/Nov/13
Welling was an inch taller than Ritchson on Smallville. This guy ain't under the current listing and is likely he is the full 6'3"
bulgyeyes says on 5/Nov/13
Lo sgozzatore 6ft 2.75 at worst? his he heck. I briefly met him in NYC and he's 6'2.5 tops.
Lorne says on 5/Nov/13
Lo Sg is right, not under this at any point. He is clearly and comfortably taller than Hartley, and Richardson. They're are barefoot scenes showing him taller,(than Hartley) and Rob net H, he ain't under 6'2, and actually nearer 189cm. Come on, you sound silly, Niw Tom is 6'2 flat, Next you'll say 187cm! And him being 2.5 under Jared is a laugh, it's 2-3cm. You clearly son't know much about height, most ppl are at or near they're "evening height" 4-5 hours after waking, which is why morning height is irrelevant. He could scrape 6'4 after a full nights sleep, and he'd be 6'3 flat by lunch, and a hair under 6'3 in the evening. Not saying he is, but demonstrating your claim about how he can't be 6ft2.75 because he'd be 6ft 3.25 evening is abusurd. Frankly, I don't care if you think Welling is 5'11 and Schnieder 6ft7, but get your facts straight! Tom at 6'2 flat is retarded, that would make guys like Hartley and Ritchson 185-186cm range!
nofearsorregrets says on 5/Nov/13
Hey Smallville is one of my favorite shows.Wow Welling is a tall man, almost a foot taller than Kreuk.
CelebLifts says on 3/Nov/13
"So this listing is could be ok, AT WORST ! Not under this at any time of the day ". Just listen to yourself, you're like a broken record, really pathetic. Tom isn't the height of this listing. Tom's worst is 6'2. His best is 6'2.5. He doesn't have 0.7 on Alan Ritchson. He does not have 1.7 inch on Colin Hanks.
I really wish you would stop replying all together. I don't care about anything you say. You talk stupid. You ignore facts. How can Tom be 6'2.7 at his lowest? So you're saying he measured himself at midnight? You're crazy lol. That would mean a morning height of 6'3.5 and afternoon height of 6'3.25 which goes against facts said by Tom that he is indeed under 6'3. I'm sure Tom has measured himself various times and always got under 6'3. Like somebody said earlier, if Tom was 6'2.75 you would claim 6'3 not almost since there's hardly any difference. He's not big headed and he means 6'2.5 by almost.
Lo sgozzatore says on 2/Nov/13
Excuse me, where did i say he's 6'5? O_O
I said a lot of people who worked and met him also claimed he's 6'5. Noway he's 6'5, even if he might be near that mark in his timbs shoes!
Now, he's even 2.5 inches shorter than Jared Padalecki, Ash? He's about an inch shorter than him and with about i mean 0.75-1.25 inches. Jared Padalecki is a legit 6'4 guy, so this listing could be ok, AT WORST! Not under this at any time of the day ;) Celeb, you don't even deserve an answer to your post, it speaks itself...
CelebLifts says on 2/Nov/13
Thanks Ash. I know Lo sgozzatore actually believes Tom is 6'5, what a joke. Yeah I know he also talks alot of crap on other celebs, tell me something I don't know lol. He takes what should be lighthearted far to serious. Tom's max height is 6'2.5 and NO more.
Ash says on 30/Oct/13
Man CelebLifts glad you proved this Lo sgozzatore wrong.I mean this guy actually believes Tom Welling is 6'5 when hes barely an inch taller than Colin Hanks and he berates other celebrities to be an inch shorter than what Rob list them. Its all good let him believe Tom is 6'5 so Jared can be 6'7.5 and John Schneider can be 6'3.5 to 6'4. No more than 6'2.5 max as Tom Welling height.
Dejavu says on 30/Oct/13
He is like 2 inches shorter than Jared
CelebLifts says on 28/Oct/13
Funny how you can't name these people, more lies from you. If you really think he's that tall and continue to ignore real facts then whatever I say and others ain't going to change your stupidity.
You don't go with people's claims? Well until they get measured that's the facts. To force your own stupid opinion against it means you just want to argue.
Once again you're clearly trolling. You think Tom is only 1 inch shorter than Jared? LOL so once again you're going against facts said by Tom that he himself has said he's under 6'3 . Everybody knows Jared is at least 6'4, could be 6'4.5. You're saying Tom is 1 inch shorter so you're saying he's 6'3 - 6'3.5 LOL. Your opinion is invalid cause it's based on stupidity not facts. I don't care what you say :)
Gambit points out that picture with Legit 6'1 Colin Hanks, Tom barely looks 1 inch taller. He' between 6'2- 6'2.5. 6'2.5 being his max height.
Lo sgozzatore says on 24/Oct/13
I didn't say he's 6'5. Read carefully what i wrote :)
You said that people who met him said he's 6'2-6'2.5 and i answered to you by saying that i asked many people who met Tom and they said he's 6'3-6'4-6'5, depending on the person. But i don't go with people's "claims". It was just an answer to you. Noway he's 2 inches shorter than Jared Padalecki, he's about an inch smaller at most, in my opinion. This listing could be ok, not under it though. You think he's 6'2.5? That's ok to me, i don't really care what you think :)
Gambit says on 22/Oct/13
Just my 2 cents: Welling kept wearing ALL TEN SEASONS significantly large shoes (Timberland styles) or heavy boots that give a great height advantage. As he should because Superman should be taller than most people he meets. Most of the scenes with Alan Ritchson, the latter is on flip flops or barefooted. Tom is between 6'2" en 6'3", can't we leave it at that? I don't believe he's much or even anything over 6'3". Great pic from penguinboy too, not that much difference with legit 6'1" Colin Hanks.
CelebLifts says on 22/Oct/13
You asked people who worked with him but are not actors???? Do you realise how much BS that sounds LMAO. Now you think Tom is 6'5? Lol. So why was he 2 inches shorter than Jared? You really are getting desperate to make Tom the tallest. Right so Schneider claims 6'3 or more but cause you don't like him you have him under, but cause you love Tom who has claimed under 6'3 MULTIPLE TIMES you think he' not measured right and he's wrong and you think he's much taller like 6'5 lol. Crazy.
CelebLifts says on 22/Oct/13
I agree, he's 6'2.5. No way he's almost an inch taller than Alan Ritchson. It just that females base their opinions on the size of the crush that carry for him.
Lo sgozzatore says on 21/Oct/13
Who are these people who met him? I asked on twitter to some people who worked with him (not actors) and they all said 6'3-6'4-6'5... Just to say. Anyway, who cares if Schneider has claimed over 6'3? That doesn't mean he really is. Justin Timberlake has claimed 6'2 but that doesnt mean he is that tall since he's just 5'11! He's not even a full 6'3, let alone anything over it. Alan Ritchson, Aquaman, does look clearly shorter than Tom Welling in Smallville, by more than an inch. Hartley is clearly shorter too. I repeat, this listing is what he might be at worst! Then you're free to believe he's 5' :) I don't care
KROC says on 20/Oct/13
Usually when most people say "about" they mean that their close to a certain height but aren't quite there. If Tom was the height that he is listed here on this site, he would just say 6`3. I mean really what is a .15 of an inch? You can't tell that in person. I grew up watching Smallville and I can tell you that he never really looked all that much taller then Alan Ritchson or Justin Hartley. He's 6`2.5 people.
CelebLifts says on 20/Oct/13
Lorne/Yaspaa - That's what people say that have met him, 6'2 - 6'2.5. They're not identical, Schneider tops him, deal with it. Also I base it on facts not fanboy opinions. Tom has said he's under 6'3 and Schneider has always said over 6'3 range. Tom always wore the Timberlands until the HUGE biker boots at the end of the show. Tom is bigger than Hartley as in he's broader, he's not any taller, this shows in face to face shots. Same with the actor who played Aquaman in Smallville, he's 6'2 guy and he was identical in height to Tom so you got to stop with the excuses of everybody's in clown boots and Tom isn't. You're just SO wrong. Why didn't you ask Tom what he meant by "almost 6'3"?? Why not tell him about this page so he can tell everybody what he means and stop the fanboys over exaggerating his height. 6'2.5 could mean almost 6'3.
On my DVD Justin describes Tom has a much taller, bigger man than himself. He goes on about this like Tom's 6'7. A case of hyping up the show. I don't see him being any taller than Justin.
I don't need to post under different names to agree with myself to look right.
