How tall is Will Smith ?

Will Smith height: 6ft 1.5in (187 cm)

American actor got his start on tv in the comedy show The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and progressed to starring in a host of memorable films, such as Men In Black, Independence Day, Bad Boys and Enemy of the State. In he says "I mean I'm 6 foot 2, I'm 200 pounds now, but I've been 6 foot 2 since eighth grade when I was 6 foot 2 and 150 pounds so I've always been a little goofy". He's said 6ft 2 consistently but in 2006 maybe decided he deserved another half inch, and now states: "I'm 6ft 2.5"

I see over 4 inches between him and Michael Jordan as he looks 184 CM/6'0.5". I'll average that out with his claim which leaves him at 6'1.25"/186 CM. By 6'7.25" Lebron James and Camelo Anthony whose 6'7ish in my opinion (despite the 6'8" listing):

Click Here

The photo makes Will Smith taller than he actually is since Will Smith is closer to the camera than Lebron James is, and is towered over by Camelo Anthony who may not have the best posture (Camelo Anthony looks an entire face taller than Will Smith). He also doesn't too much taller than 5'8" Jackie Chan:

The footwear is visible as well.

Will is 6'1 at best.
the shredder says on 21/Apr/14
That Glover pic is not the best , but Still say Will is not 6'2 , more 6'1
Maio says on 20/Apr/14
not a full 6ft1.5/187 cm...looks a bit shorter than Danny Glover (6ft1.5):

he's 6ft1.25/186 cm
James B says on 17/Apr/14
Michael Jordan 6'5.25 (196cm)
Will smith 6'1.25 (186cm)
the shredder says on 14/Apr/14
that is over 4 inches in that pic.
Andrea says on 14/Apr/14
Oh, come on, he does look at least 4 inches shorter than Michael Jordan:

And Michael Jordan is not even a full 6'5, if i'm not wrong...
Will Smith at "about 6'1" is ok, still can't buy this listing, unless it's a very early measurement! He did look more than just one inch shorter than 6'2 McGainey...
Maio says on 12/Apr/14
3,5 inches???
He's closer to the camera than Jordan and has the hair little advantage.
Personally I think if they were measured the difference was closer to 4 in than 3,5 between they.
dejavu says on 12/Apr/14
He looks less than 4 inches shorter than Jordan. 6'1.5 and looks it.
the shredder says on 10/Apr/14
looks 6'0.5 with Jordan
Maio says on 8/Apr/14
look there a pic with Will Smith and Michael Jordan (6ft5/196 cm).
Here Will looks 4 in/10 cm shorter...I think Will is 6ft1.25/186 cm.

Morning: 6'1.75"/187.5(close enough to 6'2" to round it up).
Later morning: 6'1.5/187 CM
Afternoon: 6'1 3/8
Evening: 6'1 1/8
When going to bed 6'0 7/8

He is clearly 2 inches taller than Tom Hanks today.

James b you are blind or a troll. 7 inches between Will and Michael jordan ? Yeah right . The most you could argue is 4 inches . I see less than 4 inches there. 3.5 inches max.

Maybe I am not great at telling height?

Are u kidding? There looks a good 7 inches between will and Jordan

LOL. Will's head comes above Jordan's eyebrow line. How many people have 8 inches between the eyes and top of head??

You could argue 186 but he really doesn't look lower than that. I think this is a reasonable estimate.

He looks 187 CM there.

Can be 6'1 .
James B says on 13/Mar/14
Rob do you think Vinnie jones and will smith would measure very close in height?
the shredder says on 4/Mar/14
To be fair they do have a few pics were he looks taller than 6'1.5 , like with Al Gore , but we can't see their feet.
Lillo Thomas says on 2/Mar/14
Sorry hakim fanboy but will is 6'1 at best. He never ever look 6'2.
the shredder says on 1/Mar/14
I actually believe that some see him 6'2 in person , it does not mean he is , I saw 5'7.75 steven yeun look nothing short of 5'9. But it does not mean he would measure that and Will giving off a 6'2 look in person might not be crazy do to his lean and slim body , on the other hand I just can't see him measuring the big 6'2 , I do not downgrade him just to be bias , He just does not hold up to taller guys like legit 6'2 or even 6'1.5. I know his posture is a factor but it is not just that as he looks under that even without the posture. There use to be a pic with 6'5 Vince and you can tell he was losing 2 inches at best in posture and he looked 5'11. Barefoot with Alfonso riberio he really makes that guys 5 '7 " look believe but he is not as he is shorter than Astin. He made Martin appear 5'8 , he just does not come as looking taller than about 6'0.75 , honestly.
hakim says on 28/Feb/14
he's 6'2", and looks it in all his movies and in real life. You haters saying he's less need to get a life.
Lillo thomas says on 24/Feb/14
Nope . He is 6'1 at best. He never look taller than 6'1.
Lorne says on 23/Feb/14
6'1 is arguable, but no less than that. He is a tricky one; at times really does look 186-7 yet others barely looks 6'1...
the shredder says on 21/Feb/14
My 6'1 friend said he was no taller than him. I was watching Fresh Prince a while ago and he was barefoot with Alfonso and made Alfonso look around 5'7
Lillo thomas says on 19/Feb/14
Nope. He is 6'1 at best.
runt says on 19/Feb/14
Jimmy Fallon is listed at 5-11.5. I would say based on that, Will Smith looks 6-1.5 in his dancing routine as the first guest of the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Dejavu says on 18/Feb/14
Will smith only looks shorter because he has poor posture. He is 187cm guy and I bet that he will be measured at 188cm earlier in the day
Lorne says on 7/Feb/14
Rob is right; sure, he looks 6'1 in some pictures, but other times he looks close to 6'2. I really think 186-186.5 evening is reasonable. The absolute minimum is 185.5, I just can't see less. He looks 2.5-3cm over Tommy Lee Jones, who I believe peaked just over 6 feet. He looks the same height as Jason lee, who to me looks a proper 187cm, and cannot be less than 186. And then we have Evander, whom Rob has met, and gives 186cm, with a minimum of 185.5. Smith looks taller, so 186-186.5, you could argue they are both about the same, with each measuring 185.5-186, but otherwise, Smith at 186.5 makes sense. Rob knows what he's doing. 6ft1.5 for Smith is fair. I'm still inclined to 186cm myself, but honestly, this listing is logical, considering that all good evidence points to him clearing the 6ft mark.
IR says on 7/Feb/14
I see only three inches difference between Will Smith and James Avery.
Smith 6' 2" Avery 6' 5"
avi says on 5/Feb/14
strong 6'1 at best
Lorne says on 4/Feb/14
I actually agree with that assessment, Maio...
Maio says on 3/Feb/14
Personally I think Will Smith is 188 cm out of Bed and 186 cm at Night.
I think he's a genuine 6ft1.25/186 cm...However i agree about the fact that, if he's not 186 cm, he's probably closer to 6ft1.5/187 cm than 6ft1/185 cm:

6 ft 1 in (185 cm): 15% of chances
6 ft 1.25 in (186 cm): 60% of chances (my choice)
6 ft 1.5 in (187 cm): 25% of chances
Lillo thomas says on 3/Feb/14
Nope . Will is 6'1 at best.
tom says on 3/Feb/14
6'1"- 6'1.5", maybe 6'2" out of bed. 6'2" is a fair claim, but any more than that is transparently untrue. He's solidly taller than 6' but not by a lot.
Lorne says on 2/Feb/14
I'm sorry, but anyone who see's him with Evander, and say's less than 6'1 is insane. Not only is Smith clearly taller, his posture actually looks worse! Granted Smith definantly has footwear advantage, but still, he cannot possibly be shorter than Evander, who is 185.5-186cm. Therefore, Smith cannot be less than 6'1. Actually, even with 0.5in shoe advantage, he would still edge out Holyfield, so that would make him the 6ft1.5 he is listed. He would really need 2cm more shoes for 6'1 to even be remotely possible. Sorry, not buying the weak 6'1 for Will Smith, the guy is 186-186.5 evening.
FreddyKrueger says on 2/Feb/14
guys dont forget the 1inch rule .....substract up to 1inch from whatever height an actor under 6'4 or actress under 5'11 claims and you got their real height...90% of height claims by people, be it a celebirty or just your average joe on the street, are rounded up a little (mostly its 2cm thats added)

-will 185-186cm
-hanks 180-181cm

barefeet of course
Dejavu says on 1/Feb/14
Jay Z and Will Smith are the same height in full body photos. Maybe Jay Z will have a tiny edge.
Lenad is sexy says on 30/Jan/14
get smith and jay z standing right next to each other with same posture and Id put money on Jay Z edging him out
Dejavu says on 29/Jan/14
He has 2 inches on Tom hanks in full body shots
Seahawksfan says on 29/Jan/14
Also, could his hair be what makes him look 6'2" in some photos? Here's a photo with him by 6'0 Tom Hanks without hair and the difference all of a suddenly is no more than .75 inches:

I agree with seahawksfan
Seahawksfan says on 24/Jan/14
@RealDeal If Will Smith is not even six feet (there was a user a while ago claiming six feet for Will Smith when they linked an image of him by 6'1 Bo Jackson where Bo Jackson looked taller because of uneven posture, when I found out that Will Smith is actually like .25-.5 inches taller than him) then it would mean this:

Will Ferrell: 6'0.75"
Morgan Freeman: 6'0.25 (he's .75 inches taller than Will)
Will Smith: 5'11.5" (let's go with that)
Jim Carrey: 5'11.25" (I think that Will Smith would measure up somewhat taller, but they're shockingly identical)
Tom Hanks: 5'9.75"
Leonardo Dicaprio: 5'8.25"

There's no way that he's under 186 CM. He's more likely 187 with Jim Carrey being 186 (I'm using his name since he's commonly compared with Will on these pages). Both stand quite tall in movies and tower over most people. 6 feet is still tall, but there's no way that a six footer would give the same impression that either of these guys give off.
Ron says on 22/Jan/14
Certainly 6'2" he got some long ass legs so to me he looks even taller then 6'2" maybe like 6'2.5"
RealDeal340 says on 22/Jan/14
Just reading through some of the comments posted cannot judge an actor's height from a photo. There's nothing real about Hollywood. It's all an illusion. If an actor or his publicist want you to believe he's tall, they'll take a "tall" photo. You must see them in person. Will Smith is not even 6' tall.. hate to bust your bubbles...

187 cm? Don't think so, probably just out of bed

Late afternoon/Night height 185 cm, all the photos with 6'3ers testify that.
Lenad is sexy says on 17/Jan/14
he looked like a legit 6'1 on fresh prince. But other times he can look between 6'1 and 2 and sometimes as low as 6'0 but that's bad posture
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Jan/14
Could look 6ft2 on Fresh Prince
Lenad is sexy says on 16/Jan/14
looked 6'1-ish like 186cm max on fresh prince i'll admit that

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Jan/14
Rob, doesn't 187-188cm out of bed constitute 6ft1/185cm flat for Will?

Really he should clear 6ft2 out of bed and drop closer to 186cm by late evening. Either that or his spine must be pretty short like mine.
Lenad is sexy says on 4/Jan/14
187-188cm out of bed rob?
[Editor Rob: I think he'd be that no problem.]
Seahawksfan says on 4/Jan/14
I would claim 6'1 for him since I was identical with him when I met him, but I have found out that I'm actually taller than 185 CM since I was measured at the mark where they were unable to determine whether I was 186-187 CM which mean, and I'd be able to tell a 1 CM difference through a mirror if there was one. 187 CM is correct for him, just like me.
jordydecke says on 3/Jan/14
@Songo Will has said that he reached his adult height (whether it be 6'1 or 6'2) by the eight grade (as Rob lists above) so judging by that Jaden will be lucky to be as tall as his father as he doesn't appear to be following his growth pattern.

Of course a sharp growth spurt isn't out of the question. I was shorter than Jaden at his age but started shooting up by age 16 and reach 5'11. However, I did learn that my father was very short at school so clearly I followed his growth pattern.

I'd say he may reach 5'9 or 5'10.
5ft10guy says on 3/Jan/14
Will is one of my favorite actors overall and seeing the old movie he was in Made in America he looked 6ft1-6ft1.5.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Jan/14
Click Here Will Smith with 189cm peak Sidney Poitier in his 80s...
songo says on 2/Jan/14
Presuming will smith has a head about 8-9 inches long i'd say jaden is about 5'5-5'6 at the moment. Officialy he's supposed to be 5'7 though. For a 15 year old that's not massive but not small either. If i had to bet i'd say he will end up about 5'11 depending on his growth spurts, but then again it's pretty hard to predict a teenager's end height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Jan/14
Solid 188cm out of bed, possibly a fraction more...
cobra says on 30/Dec/13
too many people are using pictures with horrible perspective and angles(ie camera is to the side and the guy being compared to smith is standing a couple of feet away and in front or behind of him...not to mention they might be on uneven ground.

These pictures are an example of height van get distorted with bad perspective/angles:

Lillo thomas says on 28/Dec/13
Nope he is 6'1 at best . 6'0.5
Lenad is sexy says on 27/Dec/13
I think he's scraping 6'2 out of bed like a very solid 187cm. I could buy a full 6'2 out of bed as well. 189cm is pushing it
Maio says on 27/Dec/13
Morning/Out of Bed: 6 ft 2 in/188,0 cm
Late Morning/Midday: 6 ft 1.7 in/187,1 cm
Afternoon: 6 ft 1.5 in/186,5 cm

185cm-186cm before bed
Mathew says on 23/Dec/13
6'1" - 6'1.5" range covers Smith.
heigth says on 23/Dec/13
yeah if you really met him then he must be 5'7 - 5'8 just like i thought i doubt he is only 5'6
Lenad is sexy says on 23/Dec/13
I'd say a full 6'2 or damn close to it out of bed. So he can get away with claiming 6'2
Dejavu says on 20/Dec/13
He is not that far off 6'2. Standing next to Nadal and Djovovic, he looks near 6'2.
height says on 19/Dec/13
he looks really tall , my guess is 6"1 FLAT could even be 6"2 . but idont think jaden smith will be more than 5"10 cuz of his short mother
Lenad is sexy says on 14/Dec/13
Probably 186cm before bed

He doesn't look 6'2 next to David Beckham, especially if Beckham is 5'11:

David Beckham even is tilting his head down which makes him appear even shorter than he is.
Lillo thomas says on 6/Dec/13
He is 6'1 at best.
Dejavu says on 4/Dec/13
With better angle, will smith has an inch or so on Nadal and looks similar to djokovic. He looks taller than a plain 6'1
Balrog says on 4/Dec/13
I think there is enough evidence to bring him down to a flat 6'1" but 186cm it's fair too.
Lorne says on 3/Dec/13
I agree, Shredd, Glover looks 6'1 max. But if Rob gives him 187, it's believable, however I still say 186cm for him and Smith could be spot on. And people, quit saying Smith is 184cm, it's quite clear at this point he cannot be less than 6'1...
Dejavu says on 3/Dec/13
He is definitely in the 186-187cm range but his posture is bad usually.
Gilipollas says on 3/Dec/13
Funny some people claim Isiah Thomas was a hair over 6 feet....
the shredder says on 3/Dec/13
I agree , it is not the best pic and Will can be the same height and this has nothing to do with will but I think Glover can be 6'1 , He looks 6'0.5 max with Rob and He does not seem to be losing much posture
Lillo Thomas says on 2/Dec/13
Lorne Will posture is fine in that pic . The pic proves Will smith is clearly shorter than 6'1.5 max Danny glover . The difference in reality is probably less than the pic show but it's clear as day Will is shorter than Danny glover . And don't forget Danny glover is 6'1.5 at best today.
Lillo Thomas says on 2/Dec/13
Rob should downgrade Will to 185 cm or 6'0.75 .
Lorne says on 2/Dec/13
Sorry Shred, that pic isn't compelling. Rob is right, and not to mention they are to far apart, we can't see footwear, Smith looks more relaxed...I agree with 186cm Smith, but that pic doesn't prove it, sorry, though interesting find! Howver, I think him and Glover both ver similiar, 6'1-6'1.5...
the shredder says on 1/Dec/13
Rob should give him 186 cm.
Lillo Thomas says on 1/Dec/13
Will smith looking shorter than 6'1 Isiah Thomas make more sense now .
Lillo Thomas says on 30/Nov/13
Rob maybe you right but the pic proves Will Smith is 6'1 best or a weak 6'1 . I'm saying that for years ! In the pic with Danny glover Will look like 6'0 flat but in reality he is between 6'0.5 to maybe 6'.75 max . Will smith is a weak 6'1 guy.
Juan Z says on 30/Nov/13
footwear of tennis players are more tallers. I think
Will Smith 61 (185 cm)
Rafa Nadal 60.5 (184 cm)
Novak Djokovic 62 (188 cm)
Dejavu says on 30/Nov/13
If anything Will Smith looked the same as Djokovic and edges out Nadal.

Lillo thomas says on 29/Nov/13
Will is 6'0 max next to Danny glover .
[Editor Rob: in the image with glover it looks a bit of barrel distortion which might knock a little off the people on either side of the middle person (Glover). The 2 types of distortion.

that's also a problem sometimes when the photographer shoots vertically (portrait), it can effect or stretch the image a bit. All depends on types of lenses and distances.]
Pleb says on 28/Nov/13
6ft0.5 max with a 6ft 1.5 Glover.

@Seahawksfan I don't buy Djokovic at 188cm, he is around 186cm/187cm if Andy Murray is 189cm. And Nadal is not 6'1 he is a weak 6 footer, more in the 5'11 range.

Here's the vid with Smith and Djokovic: Click Here Not the best quality afraid.

At 0:53-1:00 when the shot was taken, none of them were standing up straight, in fact they were all posing to be the same height, Smith had one leg in front of the other and was slightly leaning forward.

At 0:37 secs onwards you can get the best view of Smiths footwear, looks to be some Supra TK that probably gives less than the typical tennis shoe.

Also notice at 0:37 when Nadal is posing with Smith, he is balancing himself on one leg to appear taller... Indicating he's a shorter guy.
Seahawksfan says on 28/Nov/13
Considering that Danny Glover is more 6'1.5 nowadays, Will Smith is no way 6'1.5 judging from that image. He looks 6'0 there.
the shredder says on 27/Nov/13
Rob , is Will paying you lol? look here and tell me he is the same as Danny Glover. ... Click Here
Seahawksfan says on 27/Nov/13
He's edged out by 6'2 Djokovic and the same height as 6'1 Nadal.

No more 6'2 claims please.
Seahawksfan says on 25/Nov/13
6'1 is still tall, even if it's not the tallest.
Dom says on 25/Nov/13
He got his photo with Nadal and Djokovic today in Argentina. Looked like Djoker had 3cm on him and Nadal looked the same height. Id give him 185 these days.
MD says on 25/Nov/13
Chris Brown is 6'0", an not a quarter-inch more. So, I'm glad you got your own photo with Will, then.
Seahawksfan says on 24/Nov/13
I'm 185-186 CM (maybe 187 CM) and just saw an image taken with me, Will Smith and Jim Carrey (I will upload it I can find it again) and it looked like three of us were exactly the same with Will Smith and I just barely having a .25 edge on Jim Carrey. We were lined up from shortest to tallest as well with it being Jim Carrey, Will Smith and then me. 6'1.25 seems accurate, but then wouldn't Jim Carrey be only 6'1? I think that one of the two lied about their heights.
Seahawksfan says on 24/Nov/13
Chris Brown and Will Smith look identical, and Chris Brown is 6'1.
Dejavu says on 24/Nov/13
I am not saying that he is 6'2 but there are photos which show that he stands similar to 6'2 guys. I think he is around186-187.
Lillo thomas says on 23/Nov/13
The shredder . I say anyone who see more than 6'1 flat for Will Smith . Really need eye glasses.
the shredder says on 22/Nov/13
whoever sees him taller than 6'1.5 really needs glasses more of a chance of 6'0.5.
Dejavu says on 21/Nov/13
He looks the same if not taller than Jon voight in that photo who looks 6'2 these days

Will Smith has complete posture advantage on Chris Rock as he looks to be slouching a bit, and he only appears to have 2.5 inches on him.
Emil says on 16/Nov/13
He has horrible posture but I think 6'1.5 is fair for him
mo says on 15/Nov/13
him being listed at 6'6 is a joke
Seahawksfan says on 14/Nov/13
Here he is with Drake Bell who's about 5'8 and Josh Peck who's about 5'11.5 I think and not a full 6'0.

Josh Peck has horrible posture in that photo, and while Will Smith is obviously taller, he isn't by much more than 1.5 inches taller. Thank you for downgrading him by the way.
the shredder says on 10/Nov/13
He is not his claim , maybe in shoes
Mathew says on 8/Nov/13
Somewhere between .5" and 1" short of Morgan Freeman, 1.75" - 2" taller than Tom Hanks. I see him somewhere in the 6'1" - 6'1.5" range.
Lo sgozzatore says on 7/Nov/13
Agree with Alex and Balrog, i think he might be 185-186. I wouldn't put him under 6'1 even if i wouldn't be surprised if he measured a bit under it...
the shredder says on 7/Nov/13
He said he went up to him and shook his hand , my friend is an extra in his new film " Focus " ... I asked him how tall he is and that they have a debate from 5'11 to 6'3 he said , He was clearly obvious not 6'2 or 6'3 , he said maybe his height , my friend is 6'1.

Morgan Freeman: 6'2
Will Smith: 6'1.33 (not 6'2)
Jim Carrey: 6'1.25 (186 centimeters)
Tom Hanks: 5'11.5
Shia Labeouf: 5'8
Justin Bieber: 5'7


Bravo, I say he's right on the money on most of those! Bieber is the only one I disagree with, I think he's more 167 - 168 cm (5'5.75" - 5'6"). The others iced in right on the money. Shai *could* be a bit over that 5'8" mark, that's up for debate imo.
Lo says on 6/Nov/13
Wait I meant 183, or 183-4. Think I typed it wrong.
Balrog says on 6/Nov/13
Agree with Alex 6'0.75"-6'1" is my guess with Will. Could buy 186cm but 187cm I doubt it.
Gilipollas says on 6/Nov/13
Years ago it was clear Will was barely 6'ish as he was shorter than I Thomas and clearly shorter than Uncle Phil. Watch Prince of Bel Air show...
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 5/Nov/13
6'2-6'3 for Will is nonsense. Id go with a legit 6'1 guy but at worst could be just shy of 6'1
Lillo thomas says on 5/Nov/13
The shredder whats the height you friend think will smith is? 6'1 at best ?
Dejavu says on 5/Nov/13
He looked the same height as Whitaker
the shredder says on 4/Nov/13
My friend just met him and said he was clearly not 6'2 , 6'3 range.
Silent d says on 3/Nov/13
186cm. Watched hitch again and the height difference between him and kevin james, is about 12/13cm.
Dejavu says on 3/Nov/13
He looked the same height as Jon Voight a few years back.

Sam says on 1/Nov/13
I agree with those who state 186-187 for Smith...that's pretty much what he looks pretty consistently.
Dejavu says on 30/Oct/13
He looked 2 inches taller than Tom hanks, who's in the weak 6'0 range these days. 187 is a possibility
richkid123 says on 27/Oct/13
Rob, who do you think is taller Gerard Butler or Will Smith?
[Editor Rob: I think they would look pretty similar, so much it'd be hard to tell]
Mathew says on 26/Oct/13
Anything from 6'1" to 6'1.5" range seems fine to me. I have James Avery at 6'4" and Alfonso Ribeiro maybe 5'5.5" - 5'6" range, definitely not 5'7" as he claims.
the shredder says on 22/Oct/13
6'1 flat is not insane.
Dejavu says on 21/Oct/13
186-187 I would agree on that. 6'1 at the very least.
Silent d says on 21/Oct/13
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 20/Oct/13
Usually he claims 6'2-6'2.5. In high school I remember seeing a magazine where he did claim 6'3 too! Id give him 6'1 flat though
Lenad is sexy says on 19/Oct/13
Lillo thomas says on 19/Oct/13
Will is 6-1 at best !
the shredder says on 18/Oct/13
To be fair he is not shorter than Evander , but not really taller ... 6'1 flat minimum , 186 might be the truth ...
Lo sgozzatore says on 17/Oct/13
Yeah, with Evander Holyfield he can look a bit taller and Holyfield doesnt look under 6'1. Maybe 6'1.5 is not that crazy, but just think about MC Gainey, who Rob met too. Will really struggled to look 6'1 with him, he looked more than an inch shorter. I'm still sticking with 6'1-6'1.25, not over that. In any case, his 6'2, 6'2.5 and 6'3 claims are pure imagination
the shredder says on 17/Oct/13
Shoes height ... He is 186 cm , adds with 6'2.5 in shoes
the shredder says on 17/Oct/13
Shoes height ... He is 186cm , adds with 6'2.5 .
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 17/Oct/13
Shredder, yea 6'1 for Will. Any of those 6'0 or even 5'11 claims are nonsense
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 16/Oct/13
@lelman: he claims his morning height, big deal. Its not his real height but if he did get measured at it barefoot then he's entitled to it. When did he ever claim 6ft3?
Dejavu says on 15/Oct/13
Looks the same height as Holyfield if not a bit taller
James Crowley Maximus Meridius says on 15/Oct/13
Hey Rob how tall will Jaden Smith grow too i reckon he will only too 5ft 11in i don't think he will grow to be as tall as his dad because he has a short mum he won't reach 6ft 2in
[Editor Rob: we'll see, he's got a few more years of potential growth and seems like a good chance of very healthy/active upbringing to maximise his potential.]
the shredder says on 15/Oct/13
I mean minimum 6'1.5?
the shredder says on 15/Oct/13
Rob , do you really think 6'1.5 with Holyfield?
[Editor Rob: it's not improbable]
the shredder says on 13/Oct/13
Agree Alex , minimum a legit 6'1 , but 6'2 is too much.
lelman says on 10/Oct/13
@rampage so you're saying anybody can claim 1-2in more? People ridicule Tom Cruise for claiming 5'9" so why does Will get special treatment? I'm sure first thing in the morning, in 1 inch sneakers TC reaches 5'9".

Claiming your height in shoes is like claiming your height on your tip-toes, its just bull****.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 8/Oct/13
A solid 6'1 yea. I wouldn't put him under 6'1 though
Lillo thomas says on 5/Oct/13
Nope will smith is a big time liar . He is 6-1 at best . His 6'2.5 and 6-3 claims are funny.
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 says on 3/Oct/13
6'1 seems accurate for Will. Why be 6'1 and have to claim 6'2 or more. I once seen him claim 6'3!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Oct/13
Why are people so hung up about him claiming 6ft2? Hes pretty close to it and would probably measure it in the morning. Even 6ft2.5 isn't that absurd a claim. He'd easily reach that in shoes.

A legit 6ft1.5 guy could get away with claiming 1-2in more. When he starts claiming 6ft4 then people can rightly call him out on it.
Silent d says on 21/Sep/13
Dejavu says on 20/Sep/13
same height as kevin kline who is at least 6'1.5.
Trace says on 19/Sep/13
No shoe wear but might still be helpful. Click Here
Maio says on 18/Sep/13
Agree about Will Smith! I always thought Jim Carrey was in the 6ft1 range...6ft1.25 it's possible, however he's for sure less than 6ft1.5...
Not agree about Tom Hanks: he has not got tall figure but i think he's quite tall, at peak he was above the 5ft11.5 i think...Today 181-182 cm while in his young days in the 182-183 cm!
Mathew says on 10/Sep/13
Maio says on 8/Sep/13
Will Smith: 6 ft 1.25 in/186 cm
Jim Carrey: 6 ft 1 in/185 cm
Tom Hanks: 6 ft 0 in/183 cm - 5 ft 11.75 in/182 cm (peak)
5 ft 11.5 in/182 cm (today)


I'd say more realistic is

Will Smith: 186 cm
Jim Carrey: 186 cm
Tom Hanks: 181 - 182 cm
Lillo thomas says on 8/Sep/13
Will looked 6-1 next to Jeff goldblum wearing BOOTS in that movie .

Will Smith: 6 ft 1.25 in/186 cm

Len says on 7/Sep/13
Smith's 6'1" at the very most, even in his younger days.

There's some shots in Independence Day where he's standing next to 6'4" Adam Baldwin, and looks a good 3 inches shorter... and that's WITH Smith standing a bit closer to the camera.

Him claiming 6'2.5" is a bit silly.

Will smith is 6-1 at best . I peg him at 6-0.5 . Will is a tall wannabe guy because he is claiming 2 inches taller than his real height . Will never wear lifts yet he expect us to believe his insane 6-2.5 claims . 6-1 is a weak tall height in the USA . 6-2 is the beginning of strong tall in the USA . To many people 6-1 is tall and I can grant this . Will is shorter than legit 6-1 Isiah Thomas anyways .
juju says on 3/Sep/13
Rob is spot with this height. He was taller than gene hackman. Hackman was never 6'2 . Watch enemy of the state rob
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 3/Sep/13
6ft 1in is absolutely tall in the US. A fair few Americans have referred to me as tall and I'm a bit shy of that mark.
Seahawksfan says on 2/Sep/13
A 6'1.5 tall guy with him not being 6'2.
SAK says on 2/Sep/13
Lillo Thomas: Nope . Will is 6-1 at best . A tall wannabe guy .
A 6f1 male is still considered tall in the US.
Lillo Thomas says on 30/Aug/13
Nope . Will is 6-1 at best . A tall wannabe guy .
Kuldeep Shukla says on 27/Aug/13
Woah...6'2'' since eight grade,i mean i'm 6'5" ,but in eight grade ,i was like 5'10''..,however i think he's a good 6'2.5'' .
KROC says on 24/Aug/13
Will has NEVER seen 6'1.5 in his life. I truly doubt he's ever been anything more then a flat 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 13/Aug/13
6ft2.5in/189cm - height in shoes
6ft2in/188cm - morning height
6ft1.5in/187cm - real height
CelticLion89 says on 12/Aug/13
Johno - if Ferdinand is 6'2 then what do you have Terry at who always looks two inches shorter (Google images it if you must)? 6 flat for Terry is laughable, Rio is an easy 6'3. He easy had 3.5 inches of 5'11.5 Drizzy too.
Balrog says on 11/Aug/13
A weak 6'1''. 184-185cm range.
Lillo thomas says on 4/Aug/13
Will is a tall wannabe guy . He is 6-1 at best .
Dmeyer says on 4/Aug/13
I think once your past 0.25 in over a mark its ok to claim the next inch , Will is probably 6'1 3/8-6'1.5 so claiming 6'2 is easier but 6'2.5 is pushing
Lo says on 4/Aug/13
Lol Will, the 6' 2 was pushing it , 6'2.5??? Come on man, even in shoes you wouldn't clear 189cm! Maybe it's Timberland height? But in all seriousness, 6'2.5 is a bad punch line, but so is less than 6'1. I give him 186cm, can look 6'1 or 6'1.5, 186 is fair.
MarcusTheSwede says on 3/Aug/13
I Think this listing needs a edit. If you look at Movie I am Legend where he stands next to Alice Braga(Anna in Movie)(also listed here at 160cm)
I Think if you all look when they are standing together...and he is wearing shoes..he is not a full 6ft 1.5in ...Alice Braga is only 160cm...Will is tall but not 187cm..not a chance look at Movie when they stand together.
Id say 185-186 maximum. Look at Movie evidence.
Thanks for great site.
Maio says on 29/Jul/13
I'd say:

Will Smith: 6 ft 1.25 in/186 cm
Jim Carrey: 6 ft 1 in/185 cm
Colin Firth: 6 ft 1 in/185 cm
cole says on 28/Jul/13
Really struggling to see him over 6'1.
Lo sgozzatore says on 27/Jul/13
Shredder, it's not he looks shorter than 6'1.5 at times, he never looks as big as 6'1.5 to me. Never!
Lo sgozzatore says on 21/Jul/13
Better chance that G is 5'8 than Will Smith 6'1.5...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 20/Jul/13
Rob who has a better chance of being 6ft1.5, this guy, Jim Carrey or Colin Firth?
[Editor Rob: all of them could measure anywhere in the 6ft 1-1.5 range]
Silent d says on 17/Jul/13
186cm is good for him.
Len says on 17/Jul/13
A 6-1 guy who for some reason thinks he needs to claim to be taller.

It's strange that he's insecure about this... 6-1 is plenty tall for any line of work except the NBA or professional volleyball.
Lillo Thomas says on 14/Jul/13
Protip for will smith . If you want to look near your insane claims . You should start wearing lifts !
Rey says on 13/Jul/13
The photo with Evander Holyfield. The former boxing champ was never 6' 2"--not even 6'1". At best, 6' 1/4". I have seen him and shook his hand. It makes sense that Will Smith had some height on him.
Sam says on 12/Jul/13
No pictures of them next to each other, but Jemaine Clement (described as 6'1" or 6'2" on Flight of the Conchords) looks taller than the reporter in this clip while Smith looks to be maybe a smidge shorter.
