Tom Welling's Height
6ft 2.75in (190 cm)
American actor best known for starring as Clark Kent in TV series Smallville. In film he appears 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."

You only find a celeb being honest about his height when he's over 6 foot
Ben said on 11/May/17
Superboy, you'll probably grow to 5'8"-5'9"
Superboy said on 10/May/17
I'm gonna shed a tear I wish I was Tom's Height ;( I'm 16 - 17 and I'm only 5'6 I don't eve know I m gonna grow couple inches.

Happy 40th Birthday to the 6'3 actor Tom Welling.
I'd like to see him in big movie 🎬 roles.
S.J.H said on 8/Mar/17
Lol if tom is 6'3 and over then peak john schneider would be nearly 6'4 and david hasselhoff would be close to 6'5 which is impossible. Tom is probably just 190cm in the morning and drop to 189cm range. Remember rob list him 6'2.5 at first before upgrade that could highly be tom before bed height

When I lived in Vancouver about 10 years ago I saw Welling outside jogging a few times. I don't know if he lived nearby or if he simply liked the area because it had trails for running. One time when I was getting ready to go running I saw a tall guy with a dark beard walk up next to me and start stretching. Something about him seemed familiar so I took a second look and I instantly recognized that it was Welling.
I'm 5'11" and he towered over me much in the same way as my 6'3" brother towers over me. We were both wearing running shoes with similar sized thick cushy heels so he gained no advantage there. I felt that Welling was at least half an inch taller than my brother. He also had huge feet. I wear a 10.5 shoe and his shoe had to be at least a size 14. The other things I noticed was that he had big hands and a big chest. He's a big all-around guy. In person he looks much bigger than he did on that show Smallville.

I wish I was a 6 footer though! I guess you're right about my legit uncle claiming 6'3" since he's the same mark as Tom Welling in his peak at night.
Johan said on 13/Feb/17
My idea on Imperial is that if you're a 6'2.25" guy for instance you drop the quarter and just claim 6'2"
If you're 6'2.75" then its fair to round up to 6'3".
Metric is far more simple in this respect.
said on 13/Feb/17
Impossible. Look at him with a peak 6'3 jon schneider who look to edge out by 0.5 on season 1 to 5 smallville and schenider look 6'2 in person with rob just few years back but the camera angle favor on rob more. Tom might just measure 190cm in the morning
he don't look much over 6'2 here and was standing pretty well might be his lowest filming the whole day. I believe he can stretch to 6'2.5
Mark(5'9.25") said on 11/Feb/17
Rob, this is my legit Uncle's height at late night and he regularly gets mistaken for 6'3". Could he just go ahead and claim 6'3"?
berta said on 11/Feb/17
i think he is about 191,5 in the morning and shrink to 190 in the evening
S.J.H said on 5/Feb/17
I remember rob use to list tom welling at 6'2.5 and he could be this mark by lowest no surprise. Not everyone measure themselve at evening and go with it and most people just go with their doctor measure them in the morning session check up and claims it
Yes yes said on 4/Feb/17
Wow! Kryptonians are very tall! Or what do you say Rob? ;)
A strong 6'2.75 for Tom, might be 6'3.
Closest to actor to Superman's real height so far! Clark Kent is listed as 6'3 and 235 pounds on DC Comics database.
shiva181cms said on 1/Feb/17
He would definetely fall a bit below 190cms after a busy day say 12hrs standing on his feet or after a workout in the evening may it be 1-3mm or 3-6mm ,but not below 189cms though as Rob lists late afternoon heights so still in the 190-190.5 range listing 6'3 is still better
berta said on 31/Jan/17
he get my respect for being so honest about his height. many in his shoes would have claimed 191-193.
Nils said on 20/Jan/17
I just rewatched early seasons and since celebheights increased my interest in well celeb heights i looked closely.
He actaully looks taller then John in most scenes, even by an inch in some scenes. He looks 1-2 inches taller then the guy who plays whitney in most scenes.
He easily has 4 inches on rosenbaum and close to 4 inches on glover.
This guys height is a mysteri to me. If he came out and claimed over 6'3 i would believe him. But i don't get why he would claim under his mark so he probably is around 190 cm and something is up with the footwear.
S.J.H said on 15/Jan/17
Counting down 10 years from 2017 now to see if tom welling shrinking below 190cm. Lol
nathan said on 22/Dec/16
Best actor ever to play Clark Kent"superman" I miss seeing him on smallville...
abcd said on 14/Dec/16
189 or 190 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/16
I doubt he falls under 190cm even after 4 days without sleep.
berta said on 29/Oct/16
with perfect posture he looke 191 so i think 190 is perfect listing
Mark said on 24/Oct/16
Mark said on 19/Oct/16
I would still put Toni Welling at a solid 6'3"
shiva 181 cms said on 15/Sep/16
Actually what I was Implying was Ryan Reynolds came up with 6'1-2 comment but looks like a legit 6'2 guy and Rob gave him 6'2 likewise Tom too came up with about 6'3 Mark but looks like a legit 6'3 but Rob listed him a bit shy of 6'3 anyways he looks a bit above 6'3 than below so he can be listed as 6'3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Sep/16
Welling would definitely be a bit taller than Reynolds.
joe### said on 11/Sep/16
I'm sure that Tom is higher than reynolds
shiva 181 cms said on 9/Jul/16
Rob you can give him 6'3 mark without hesitation hes appeared that mark he might have measured 6'2.75 range and got up with almost 6'3 mark like reynolds you gave him 6'2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jul/16
Strong 190cm barefoot, more like. Pretty much 6ft3 on the nose.
Alex said on 25/Jun/16
Tom I bet is around 189,5 or a weak 190 cm barefoot, nothing more.
said on 15/Jun/16
'on a good day in his early 20's he may well have been near that'
Rob, are you implying that the guy may have dropped a fraction?
Editor Rob: on a good day when his discs were at their peak and able to rehydrate fully, he may well have reached a tiny bit taller than he could at near 40.
said on 15/Jun/16
ROB would he really measure as high as 193 cm right out of bed ?
Editor Rob: on a good day in his early 20's he may well have been near that, but of course we are guessing. One man might shrink 3/4 inch, another 1.25 inch. The taller you are though, the potential is there for a bit more shrinkage, with a longer spine.
Mark said on 13/May/16
Definitely a solid 6'3" in the morning.
Though he would be edged out by Michael Shannon.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/May/16
Out of bed: 192-193cm
Before bed: 190-191cm
Might be 190.2cm before bed which is ⅛in off 6ft3. All I'll say is that there are a number of guys listed here at 6ft3 that I can't see taller than this guy.
John said on 18/Apr/16
Solid 190 cm. Nothing less.
Johno said on 11/Apr/16
In the 6'2-range.
Johan said on 11/Apr/16
Nothing under 190 cm.
S.J.H said on 10/Apr/16
In metric 189.5-190.3cm anywhere this range would be welling height
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Apr/16
You're out of your mind.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Mar/16
He's taller than both Just Hartley and Alan Ritchson (both 6ft2 range) so anything below this we can and should rule out. I think even he could above this listing but still not an exact 6ft3, like 6ft2⅞
Rick said on 6/Mar/16
If you compare bautista and Tom..you see bautista taller than Tom..
Can y help me?
Alex said on 7/Feb/16
In Smallville he was used to wear boots, 2.5-3 cm range, and he looked a solid 190 cm or little more. His barefoot height should be 188-189 cm, nothing less.
joe### said on 6/Jan/16
looks 190-191 with benjamin walker
said on 6/Jan/16
From 0:55-1:14=The subtitles say 190cm,but judging from Kelly's reaction and his remark, he sounds like a full 6'3!!!
John said on 1/Jan/16
In the pics I've seen with his ex I think it's reasonable to assume she's in the 5'8 to 5'9 range.
said on 29/Nov/15
Rob, how tall do you think Tom's ex wife is? She looks quite tall, maybe around 6 inches shorter?
Editor Rob: she could look anywhere in 5ft 8-9 range
Robbin said on 25/Nov/15
I ever thought he was 6'4 then i realise how other actors add up an inch of claim. Most 6'4 actors were same height as welling.
said on 23/Nov/15
I was a MASSIVE fan of SMALLVILLE, and Tom Welling(Clark Kent) was never towered by ANYBODY.His fellow co-stars said that he always had a big guy vibe...I think he should be up-graded to 6'3(191cm!!!)I have proof why...
WWE Superstar KANE(Aldar)-6'7 towered him..(but not as much as one would a except)
-In this image Kane appears massive... Click Here
- In this behind the scenes image Tom Welling is like Randy Orton(6'4) when standing next to Kane.
Compared to Alan Ritchson (6'2) Click Here
They appear almost similar in height, but Tom edges Alan out and he is slouching... Click Here
In this image however Tom is clearly bigger and taller..
Compared to Justin Hartley(6'2) Click Here
If you look closely his shoulder level it is higher than Justin's...
The only time he was towered in an awkward way was in Cheaper By The Dozen Click Here
by Jared Paladecki(6'4), but in an intreview, Tom said that the producers wanted a guy who would tower Tom and still have a teenager's look...
Tom should be a solid 6'3 guy...most people say it,he looks it and he isn't that insecure guy to lie about his height..
What do you think Rob?
Editor Rob: his almost 6ft 3 claim seems like that of a guy who was measured at that.
John said on 12/Nov/15
I think that Welling easily holds this listing and can edge other supposedly 6'3 actors that inflate their height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Nov/15
"Tom Welling's height is 6ft 2⅞in (190.182cm)"
Might sound a little whammy but he can look over 6ft3 more than under but Rob still ain't gonna give him that nice rounded figure.
said on 7/Nov/15
Rob, do you think he could measure 6ft3¾(192cm) out of bed?
Editor Rob: yes, that is within the realms of believability.
said on 6/Nov/15
Rob, since you retrieved a lot of old comments from the past from a lot of pages, are there any of Tom's page too?
There might be some interesting quotes...
Editor Rob: I only limit comments to about 250
John said on 24/Oct/15
Odd,because I watched every episode of Smallville and Tom clearly edged out legit 6'2 guys. To say he's 6'2 at best isn't very likely as there's a better chance he clears 6'2. John Schneider is listed at 6'3 and he and Tom were very close and at times Tom appeared to have the edge. So 6'2 at best, I doubt it.
joe @@ said on 23/Oct/15
Darren510 said on 21/Oct/15
I used to watch Smallville and always figured him for 6'2 at best.

Allie said on 19/Oct/15
Wellings looks like a solid 6'3 to me. I think more often than not and for the most of the day he can hold the upper average of 6'3. Looks like the lead singer from the All American Rejects too haha. I remembered they even performed on the show.
John said on 12/Oct/15
They purposely wanted Batista to appear taller to seem more intimidating.
joe@@ said on 6/Oct/15
I'm not so sure Tom also had his boots
Judd ISR said on 5/Oct/15
I think he would edge actors like a young Sean Connery, Ben Affleck and Ryan Reynolds, he would be as tall as Chris Hemsworth but he would be edged by Jeff Goldblum, John Corbett and Vincent d'Onofrio.
6'3" is a good estimate for him...
John said on 4/Oct/15
Batista Was wearing thicker shoes to add to his height.
said on 1/Oct/15
Batista looked taller than he Click Here
Ice said on 30/Sep/15
Always looked like a TALL guy in Smallville .
said on 20/Sep/15
To me he looks no less than 5 inches shorter plus the fact Tom is wearing low shoes he looks more 176-177, but i'm not gonna argue a cm :)
Also maybe the presenter isn't standing at his tallest there?
Here's with Pierce: Click Here
(who struggles to look even 6' with him)
said on 17/Sep/15
Rob, how tall do you think the guy on Tom's right is? Around 177?
[Editor Rob: 177-8 range is possible.]
said on 11/Sep/15
Do u think he would edge Chris hemsworth?
[Editor Rob: I think it would be hard to tell them apart standing together.]
Sammy Derrick said on 22/Aug/15
On an Interview on Regis and Kelly,Kelly points out that he looks taller in person than on screen...he says that he is about 6'3
Many of his colleagues and his bios on websites all claim 6'3 plus he doesn't look like the insecure guy who would lie about his height...
said on 17/Jul/15
Rob, just out of curiosity, do you really think Sam Jones is just 5'7? At times, he doesn't look that short with Tom and the other castmates on the show but there are also pics (outside the set) where he really doesn't look over 5'7! He's a tricky guy, do you think they made him stand on appleboxes or something in some scenes? Here, for example, ok, he's slouching but still i doubt he would be much taller if stood straight: Click Here
Here, something's going on since he looks maybe around 5 inches shorter than Tom: Click Here
[Editor Rob: been a while since I watched those early smallville's, but at times he seemed taller than 5ft 7, I'd put it down to possible small 3-4 inch crate, as he looks 5ft 7 in normal photos mostly.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jul/15
Because he's got good posture, he could easily be mistaken for 6ft3+(Technically he is that but much earlier in the day).
said on 27/Jun/15
If Tom came out with a very precise claim like "I'm 6'3 and a quarter" instead of "almost 6'3", Rob would have probably have given him that... Just see what happened with Jake Gyllenhaal or Jim Beaver! ;)
[Editor Rob: the Jake story isn't finished, the next chapter will be when he agrees to a measurement!]
said on 25/Jun/15
Johnny Depp is around 5'9 yet he is absolutely towered over by Tom here. Kirsten also looks a lot smaller next to Tom compared to her husband who you also have around the same height. He is 6'3. Click Here
Mike said on 22/Jun/15
190-191 range. No less.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jun/15
Welling is 190-191cm range, no less. Pretty much 6ft3 bang on.
If Rob didn't see that quote, he'd list him at that.
joe 193cm night
said on 16/Jun/15
Schneider seemed 6'2.75 (190cm) next to david hasselhoff
said on 30/Apr/15
Rob, you see what i am talking about? Why there are scenes like this? Tom and Michael walking on the street and they basically keep this perspective for all the time: Click Here
I mean, as you say, Tom is Superman. Shouldn't he appear imposing? There are many scenes like this on Smallville...
Or scenes like this: Click Here
Here he's talking to a guy who is in fact way shorter than him but from this shot you wouldn't say that, right? I wonder why they use these tricks a lot on the show. Is that what you mean with "making him taller"?
[Editor Rob: some directors might have just filmed with certain low angles for effect, but I did watch it and from what I recall I don't think overall they made him shorter, although you would find many instances of angles that did reduce heights.]
Jay said on 28/Apr/15
@pablo, They probably had Jared wear boots in that scene
pablo77bar said on 25/Apr/15
Josh Pence is in the 6ft 2.5-6ft 2.75 range
Tom Welling is 6ft 3
But I dont know
He looks much smaller than Jared.At least in that famous picture
said on 23/Apr/15
Rob, do do you think he'd edge Idris Elba, Dave Morrisey and Liev Schreiber?
[Editor Rob: I think probably Schreiber could turn out to be weakest of those...a guy like Welling might pull off appearing taller than some because I believe he has worked on his posture and carries himself very near his measured height, while Elba doesn't and is more loose in posture at times.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/15
There are plenty of guys on this site listed at 6ft3 that I'm certain Welling would edge out.
John said on 5/Apr/15
I've seen behind the scene footage and Tom almost always edges John out.
Andrea said on 4/Apr/15
Obviously? I could post a lot of pictures where Tom looks taller than him! Of course you can find some scenes where John edges (or at least seems) him out... And no, i don't think they do that much to make him appear taller but it's the opposite! If you really watched Smallville you can see that, in most of the scenes where Tom talks to the other actors/actresses, they use low camera angles which favourite the others and it's basically impossible to tell the real difference! I wonder why...
fish said on 4/Apr/15
cmon guys.. john schneider is obviously a little bit taller than welling in the first 2-3 seasons. it is like rob said, the producers wanna make tom appear more imposing looking as superman
Andrea said on 28/Mar/15
In fact I still doubt John would be taller than Tom! If I had to choose, I'd bet on Tom being taller than John, not the opposite for sure! I'd be very surprised if John was the taller one because, as you said, John wears boots in many scenes too! Maybe John is more 6'2.5 and Tom 6'2.75?
Lorne??? said on 26/Mar/15
I must say, I still can't really see John Shnieder as taller than Tom, generally they look the same, in an episode I watched last night though Tom looked taller, in multiple scenes, and both were wearing boots(at least in the one scene). Even if Tom's boots were a bit thicker(they likely were) that would mak him at worst the same height as John, which is what I personally always though, within a few mm of each other. I can believe Tom's almost 6ft3, so John should be that same height as well, especially since Rob has said he is "near" 6'3 after meeting him in person(as opposed I a solid)
Andrea said on 24/Mar/15
He's clearly taller than 6'2 guys like Alan Ritchson or Justin Hartley! Anything below this listing is quite hard to believe...
said on 22/Mar/15
Viper among others have purported Tom is 6'1", I personally find that hard to believe. I doubt he would measure anything below 6'2" at his worst. Rob, do you think it's likely Tom could measure below 6'2"?
[Editor Rob: the 6ft 2 listing was back in his modelling days, when a lot of agencies kind of capped guys who cleared 6ft 2 and put them as 6ft 2...the fact he came out with that specific 'almost 6ft 3' is to me a good indication he's been measured a small amount under 6ft 3.]
said on 18/Mar/15
Rob, do you think he can be only 1/8 inch shy of the mark like me and just chooses to be modest? Or do you think he measures somewhere between 6'2.5-75"?
[Editor Rob: I'm sure he's been measured somewhere around that 6ft 2.75 range. Most men would just say 6ft 3, but he did come out once with the almost, other time just the 6ft 3.]
John said on 17/Mar/15
I think he can touch 6'3" fresh out of bed which makes him a weak 6'3". With that said he still edges many Hollywood claims such as Ben Affleck for instance.
Bishop said on 15/Mar/15
This is weird because I always saw him as a strong 6'3" guy....
joe 193cm night said on 7/Mar/15
SJH,I know you see this scene I was 12 at the time
said on 5/Mar/15
So Rob, in your opinion is Tom being truthful about his claim? I feel there's enough evidence to support that he's near 6'3.
[Editor Rob: I think he is quite honest.]
S.J.H said on 23/Feb/15
@joe 192cm says on 7/Feb/15
tom is 6´3 Click Here
Just a reminder this scene Kane was in a thick boots at about 2inch
Josh said on 8/Feb/15
He's going to be in a movie with Benjamin Walker who you have listed at 6'3 on here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Feb/15
He has an easy 2in on Costner in Draft Day (a pretty decent movie BTW). But Costner being a little under 6ft1 today is possible after turning 60
John said on 2/Feb/15
I agree that Tom would edge out quite a few 6'3 claims on this site as actors have a tendency to inflate their height.
said on 1/Feb/15
Rob, why don't you leave tom welling at 6'3? Since most actors were more commonly round up a 0.25-0.5" up. I him a good 6'3
[Editor Rob: 90% of men at 6ft 2.5-2.75 range might just have said 6ft 3, but this guy comes out and says he is almost 6ft 3...why wouldn't I list him at almost 6ft 3 then?
said on 21/Jan/15
Strange, I can't see where Tom's on his tip toes necessarily, his feet are obscured in the pic I'm seeing. Why would a near 6'3 guy need to go up on his tip toes anyway?
[Editor Rob: so more of himself can be seen in the photo.]
said on 21/Jan/15
Based on what would you say that? To me, he's standing very straight, i mean, look at his legs!!!
[Editor Rob: Tom is on his tip toes in the shot.]
said on 20/Jan/15
Rob, here's Tom with Ashley Greene (in 4 inches heels, as you can see from the event) and Paul Khoury, that you guessed at "about 6'"...
You think that's about 3 inches difference? :)
[Editor Rob: it could be that. He's not exactly standing as tall as he can there.]
Andrea said on 19/Jan/15
Well, i wouldn't rely on modeling agency cause Tom himself was listed at 6'2 flat when he was a model... Josh i think looks 6'3 if Arnie Hammer is really 6'4.5! I am not sure there is more than 1.5 inches between them, sometimes it can look more but Arnie is a guy who raises his eyes in many photos and he has impeccable posture! Of course, there's always a chance Arnie is no more than 6'4 flat, Josh is more 6'2.5 and Tom a bit taller near 6'3...
John said on 19/Jan/15
I looked it up and one of Pence's modeling agency had him listed at 6'2.5 which is consistent with Tom's near 6'3.
Josh said on 18/Jan/15
In that picture with Pence. If that guy is 6'3, Tom is definitely at least that. He actually looks a little taller than Pence.
joe 192cm said on 15/Jan/15
on the statement of Justin Hartley Tom should this about 190cm-191cm
John said on 10/Jan/15
I agree Andrea, John looks nearly 4 inches shorter there.
said on 9/Jan/15
How much difference, Rob?
[Editor Rob: in that still John can look barely even 5ft 11.]
Andrea said on 4/Jan/15
What about the photo with John?
said on 2/Jan/15
Well, even considering some footwear disadvantage, you look taller next to 6'3 guys on this site and she's supposed to be an inch taller than you! And i wouldn't base Tom and Callum comparison on that photo since Callum is closer to the camera and still looks nearly 2 inches shorter! And what about the photo with John Glover? He looks what? 4 inches shorter?
The cameraman is around the left hand side of that group, but not in front of Tom, so I would say their distance to the cameraman was actually very close. Click Here
said on 2/Jan/15
Yeah, sorry! Here's the photo: Click Here
The comparison with John... I was talking about my previous post...
[Editor Rob: I think in the group shot the height of blue and welling look what they claim to me, mack looks 5 inches shorter than cassidy, both in probably 0.4in footwear, the guys with maybe a fraction thicker but not much.]
said on 1/Jan/15
How much difference you think there is there between John and Tom? Of course, Tom is wearing Timbs in that scene so let's give him 0.5 more in footwear...
And what about this? Btw, Cassidy Freeman doesn't look 5'9 for sure there!!!
[Editor Rob: the link never appeared]
said on 29/Dec/14
This is a perfect example of what i'm talking about:
Low camera angle, Glover closer to the camera...
It's only a scene here, but i could find many ones like that! The question is, why they "reduce" Tom's height this way if he's Superman, Rob?
Of course, there are some scenes where you can see more clearly their height difference. Look at here: Click Here
And i don't think John is much under his listing since he's taller than strong 5'11 range Michael Rosenbaum...
[Editor Rob: just from watching the show I never thought they did much to reduce height differences except when doing the talking-head shots.]
Andrea said on 28/Dec/14
Rampage, the fact he's listed shorter than 6'3 guys doesn't mean he's actually shorter than them! I mean, a listing on this site doesn't change celebrities' real heights! This is just a guess! I am sure that if Tom went out with 6'3, he'd be listed at a full 6'3 on here! This is an example of how celebrities' claims can affect Rob's listings... And Rob, I wouldn't say they make him taller than he is in Smallville because, as i already said, when he has scenes with guys like Michael Rosenbaum or John Glover (who themselves aren't short at all) they use low camera angles which favour them and make them look taller than they are next to Tom! I'm still wondering why... When they don't use these "tricks", you can see that he's no less than his listing!
said on 23/Dec/14
Rob, are you still convinced that's a hair under 6ft3?
I have a hard time believing guys like Chris Hemsworth and Brendan Fraser would edge him out
[Editor Rob: I believe he is honest in his claim, at one point he measured a little under 6ft 3. With good posture and a boot of course on the show he could look domineering - he's playing Superman, the business is to not make him look small.]
Samir said on 17/Dec/14
I think He's close to 6'3.5 or 1.93m. He's too damn tall, He's even taller than Ashton Kutcher o Justin Hartley.

he's a tall man. could've claimed 6'3" and we would believe him. instead he said I'm almost 6'3" so 6'2.75" is a good listing.
said on 17/Nov/14
Well, since you always talk about his posture, he doesn't seem a guy who always try to stand at his tallest as you say, "stretching to the last mm"! If you wanna talk about guys who stand in a military pose most of the time, i think about a Stephen Amell, a Sly, a Henry Cavill or a Vin Diesel! Those guys are guys who would like to be taller for sure... You say having a good posture means a person is very self-confident but i am not so sure... I've seen just a few pics of a guy like Vin Diesel but he certainly doesnt strike me as a "self-confident" guy but more complexed and insecure about his height! Tom, yeah, he generally has a good posture but that's all... I doubt he'd like to be taller, especially after him saying he's "too tall" for his job!
[Editor Rob: diesel seems a confident guy, he just wishes he was taller so accentuates his height ;)
For me, posture gives a a big impression...no matter the height of someone, standing tall and straight head is a visual sign of confidence and well being/positivity, while a slouched, scuffling demeanour gives off more negative vibes.
said on 17/Nov/14
Yeah, he seems a very private person, despite his job... He's not a guy who enjoys appearing on journals and television for sure! Maybe if he'll be in another tv series in the future, he'll do some cons but Rob is right, chances are quite low unless he goes chasing celebrities on the street (which, btw, is not the best way to guess heights...). But i'm curious Rob, if Tom was something like 190-190.2 at his low, would you honestly be able to say "Naa, this guy is not 6'3, he's a bit under it"... 3-5 mms are nothing, IMO, especially if someone is several inches taller than you!
[Editor Rob: I'd expect him to look around a range. If he had impeccable posture he might even fool you into thinking he was in the 6ft 3-3.25 range!]

Why would that be?
fisch said on 3/Nov/14
My guess would be nearly 192cm (6'3.5") in the morning and 189,5 cm at his very lowest.
So 190cm seems right on the money.
said on 28/Oct/14
Rob, what are the chances of you meeting Welling?
[Editor Rob: low]
mike said on 16/Oct/14
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 said on 13/Oct/14
Been rewatching smallville, 1.90cms seems perfect, totally agree with Rob on this one.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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.
184.3cm said on 28/Sep/14
190-191cm Tall guy. I didnt think John looked taller at all. And didnt he even say that Tom was taller than him?
Joe said 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.
said 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...
said 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]
said 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:
[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.]
said 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.]
said 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.]
said on 28/Aug/14
Rob, how tall you think the guy he talks to (from about 1:47 on)?
Robbin said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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!
said 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]
said 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.]
said 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.]
said on 1/Aug/14
Rob, isn't this guy the famous stuntman?
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 said 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.
said 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!]
said on 9/Jul/14
looks slightly taller than 6'3" Josh Pence.
said 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 said 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 said on 26/Jun/14
Yeah, Reeve was taller... and? He didn't slouch, he was playing Superman for God's sake.
said 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):
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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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.
said on 20/Jun/14
Rob, interesting pic with Michael Shanks, that you met:
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 said on 17/Jun/14
Sometimes he and Chris Cuomo can pass for brothers. About the same height, too.
said on 28/May/14
And, just out of curiosity, how tall you think is the blond guy here?
[Editor Rob: he could look taller, possibly near 6ft 4]
said on 26/May/14
Rob, how much difference you think there is 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 said on 19/May/14
KROC there's not much difference between 6'2.5 and 6'3.
KROC said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 3/May/14
Edge out? He'd be at least an inch taller, also because Affleck is not over 6'2...
said 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.]
said 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!! ]
said 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.]
said 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) said 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 said 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 said 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.
said 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 said 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 said on 15/Apr/14
The height listed at the top of the page is correct. Tom is 6ft2.75
said 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]
said 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.]
Andrea said on 11/Apr/14
If you say so...
said 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. ]
said on 11/Apr/14
Rob, new pic with Denis Leary and Kevin Costner:
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.]
Balrog said on 8/Apr/14
No CelebLifts. He's legit 190cm, not out bed. Accept it.
John said 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 said 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 said 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.
said 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...
said 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 said on 5/Apr/14
Balrog2 can you choose another username?
CelebLifts said 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.
said 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.]
said 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 :)
said 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?]
said 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 said 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.
said on 4/Apr/14
The stunt double height is reported as 187cm-188cm:
In this picture he looks a tad taller than Welling himself.
This is not an evidence of course, many details are out of the image, but still it gives a hint.
John said 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 said on 4/Apr/14
Sorry, didn't notice this name was already used.
John said 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 said on 4/Apr/14
I'm the real Balrog and I always have stated that Welling could be a full 6'3"
said 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 said 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!
said 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.

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 said 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 said 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".
said 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 said 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! ;)
said on 2/Apr/14
Rob, here's a recent interview:
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.]
said on 27/Mar/14
Rob, how much difference there is?
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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 12/Mar/14
Yeah, Rob. Here Baldwin talks about that:
said 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.]
said 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 said on 10/Mar/14
Levi is the star of the show :)
said 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 said on 9/Mar/14
He's 6'2.5 inches.....
the shredder said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 8/Mar/14
And Lo, go check out Henry Ian Cusick, turns out he's barely 179cm!!!
Lorne said 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 said 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.
said on 7/Mar/14
Btw, Tom and Pam on Smallville:
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.]
said 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 said 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.
said 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.]
said 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?]
said 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.
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 said 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

Rob by all means you can stop Lorne from arguing, I'm getting sick of it myself.
Lorne said 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.
said 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 :)]
said 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 said on 30/Jan/14
He is probably almost 6'3 . Many 6'2.5 guys can look 6'3 . Some can even look 6'1! Depends..
CelebLifts said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 :(
said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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.
said 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 said on 25/Jan/14
Tom is slightly shorter than 191cm listed John Schneider so 190 seems fair.
