How tall is Will Smith

Will Smith's Height

6ft 1.5in (187 cm)

American actor best known to TV audiences for his starring turn in sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. In film he has appeared in memorable movies such as Men In Black, Independence Day, Bad Boys and Enemy of the State. In BlackFilm.com he commented on his height and weight, saying "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". In 2006 maybe Will decided he deserved another half inch, since his claim changed to: "I'm 6ft 2.5".

He looks prob 5" taller than Martin Lawrence on average. At most 6".

Could have measured his height in shoes...
Johno said on 19/Jul/16
Would probably average 6'1 throughout the day.

he is taller than both Cavill and Cooper by a solid inch, and max 1.5 shorter than Idris Elba.
Dude is 6ft 1.25- 6ft 1.5 solid.

I thought he only looked 2 inches shorter than Tyler Perry.

Well, Arch 186.69cm is exactly 6ft1½ so you're right!

He's 184. He's at least 4" shorter than Tyler Perry and Michael Jordan

during the day he'd probably be a weak 187cm.

Looks 187 cm .

I have a hard time deciding if he'd max 187cm or 188.

188/189cm out of bed
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 22/Jun/16
187/188cm is probably his range out of bed. That'd be where he gets he gets his 6'2 claim from. Case closed I think.
Peterson188cm said on 11/Jun/16
186cm -- 187cm is a fair listing for him!

Btw Trey Smith is shorter than Will, because Treys mother is petite.

@Rob do you think his son trey is 6'3" ??...google search says that Click Here
Editor Rob: unless he had an early 20's spurt I doubt he's 6ft 3
James B said on 24/May/16
I remember on the fresh prince how he was shorter than quite a few characters he came across on the show.

It goes to show that 6'1-6'2 isn't very big is it.....
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/16
I rule out 6ft1 flat and 6ft2. But I think but anything between those can be argued at different times.

I think you should give him 6'1.25 rob, theres no way he's that tall with ll cool j.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/May/16
I think he can clear 6ft1.

Minimum: 6ft1¼
Maximum: 6ft1¾
Dejavu said on 23/Apr/16
He had around 2 inches on Edward Norton
Idk said on 18/Apr/16
I don't think he's any shorter than this listing
James B said on 11/Apr/16
Oh yeah that's why people guessed height challenger 15 at 6'6.
James B said on 10/Apr/16
Rob if he was 4.25 inches shorter that would make will 6'1 flat then?
Editor Rob: in a photo he would look that, but the big guy's eyelevel is a little higher so it would fool people.
James B said on 8/Apr/16
Rob would he be dead 4 inches shorter than height challenger 15?
Editor Rob: he probably would look 4-4.5 inches smaller in a photo.
Dejavu said on 29/Mar/16
I think Will Smith's tendency to slouch in photos just made him look shorter than he is.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/16
He can look 6ft1 right up to 6ft2...
James B said on 24/Mar/16
Maybe goldblums hairstyle gave him an advantage over will smith in Independence Day?
Editor Rob: many hairstyles fool people. Sometimes one is less than it appears, other times it's more than it looks!

186cm clearly fits him better than 187cm.
I would say he measures 185,5 at his absolute low

He's easily the 187 CM that he is in person by him.

Rob looking at some photos from Independence Day I think 6'1 1/2 looked a bit too much judging by how he stacked up next to 193-194cm jeff goldblum

he is 186-187

Next to David Morse, Will Smith looks nothing in the 6 feet range. He is definitely between 6'1-6'2.
Johno said on 3/Feb/16
Idris is around 1.5-2 inches taller then Smith and that puts around 6'0.5 in comparison to him; a similar height to what he looks to Jamie Foxx. I got Idris at 6'2.5 or a bit lower, looks shorter then Prince William who is around 6'2.75.

186-187 is a fair listing. He can look bang on 6'2 at times but with bad posture looks 6'1.
Verba said on 23/Jan/16
@Rob would you consider a downgrade to 186cm for Will? Do you really think he's a solid 187cm throughout the day?
Editor Rob: anywhere in 6ft 1-1.5 zone I think can be argued for him.

Rob, how much difference you think there is between Will and Big Anthony?
Dejavu said on 30/Dec/15
186 is probably his low. I don't see him anything under it.
Sam said on 27/Dec/15
186cm for Will?
Dejavu said on 24/Dec/15
Idris Elba is 190. He also had 1.5 inches on Tom Hiddleston and had close to 2 inches on Gerard Butler. Will looks between 6'1 and 6'2 next to him
Andrea said on 23/Dec/15
When did Idris claim 6'2.5, Rob? If he claimed that, i'd give him that mark! He can pull off 6'2.75 for sure at times but if he claimed a precise mark like 6'2.5 there's no reason to give him 6'2.75! It also would "explain" all these claims!
Anyway, this is Will's page and, having Idris at 6'2.5, he can look anywhere between 6' and 6'1 with Idris!
He also looks well over 4 inches shorter than max 6'5.5 Anthony Joshua!
Editor Rob: can't remember the exact publication but I remember last month reading the two and a half claim and hearing a 6ft 3 radio claim.
Andrea said on 21/Dec/15
In the picture i have posted, there are two good inches, no less... In the others, it can look a bit less but i doubt under 4 good cms, like 1.75...
Rob, do you think he really looks 1.5 inches at most shorter, just looking at these pictures?
Also, look at Will with Anthony Joshua, who looks 6'5 range with Rob... Now tell me that's just a 3.5 inches difference! :)
Dejavu said on 21/Dec/15
Rob, would you agree that he looks 187cm with Idris Elba?
Editor Rob: he could look in 186 zone I think, depends exactly on Elba - he has said 6ft 2, 2.5, almost 6ft 3 and 3. From all I've seen of Idris, the 2.5-2.75 zone seems fine for him.
Dejavu said on 20/Dec/15
I think he can look anywhere from 1 inch to 1.5 inch max shorter in these photos. So 186-187 cm is a safe bet. Looks no where near 2 inches shorter.

I wouldn't say a good 2 inches there. Looks more like 1.5 inches (4cm) to me. So 186 cm could be it same as holyfield who Rob met. Will edged him years ago on the Fresh Prince but he was wearing timbs so obvious footwear advantage.
Andrea said on 17/Dec/15
Actually Idris looks a good 2 inches taller than Will, here: Click Here
The funny thing is that they both claim 6'2... :)
Dejavu said on 15/Dec/15
Yeah he looks bang one 3 cm shorter than weak 6'3 Idris Elba. He doesn't anywhere near 2 inches shorter, He looks bang on 187 cm. I mean the absolute lowest you can argue for him is 186cm.

That confirms that he is 6'1 1/2" (which is what he seemed to be in person).
Dejavu said on 12/Dec/15
Rob, I think the listing is fair. He looked an inch shorter than idris Elba who is a weak 6'3. Will smith is a weak 6'2. This proves that he is nearer 6'2 than 6'1
184.9 on a bad day said on 9/Dec/15
I watch MIB 3 today and he looks similar with Bill Hader, could be slightly taller.
6ft 1 -6ft 1.5 is spot on for Will.

He was more like 6'2 to 6'2.5 in that shoot.

Rob watching the prison scene in the Hancock movie I noticed will was almost 6'3 in shoes... So could he be 188 cm?

Closer to 6ft 1 than to 6ft 2 for sure.
Between 185 and 186 when bed time
Lillo Thomas said on 9/Nov/15
Danimal I think Will is about 6'0.5 barefoot. When I say he is 6'1 at best. I mean he would be VERY lucky to reach 6'1 barefoot at his low. It's very unlikely. 6'0.5 max is more likely.

In basketball shoes.

Lillo Thomas said on 29/Oct/15
Nope. He is 6'1 at best.

More like 6'0"-6'0.5" at best.
Danimal said on 7/Nov/15
Imo, Will claims he was 6'2" in 8th grade. Kids at that age measure their height in shoes and I'm sure Will measured his height with his basketball shoes on. So in reality he's probably just over 6'0" flat. MAYBE 6'0.5" AT BEST barefoot. Too much evidence that backs up that claim (being shorter than 6'1" Isiah Thomas, shorter than 6'1.5" Jay-Z, several inches shorter than 6'4" Bill O'Reilly, and MANY other comparisons). So yeah, 6'0"-6'0.5" for Will barefoot. I'm 99.99% sure about that.

so you think that if he will meet a honest 6'1.25" guy (like a young Pierce Brosnan), he might be same height size?

I agree with Rampage, Smith comes across as having a massive ego in interviews and while a jokey kind of guy can be pretty obnoxious. Likeable, but clearly thinks extremely highly of himself. Can't blame him with his level of fame though. Jackman and Ewan McGregor I think come across the best out of all the Hollywood male stars I can think of.

Generally Will looks this listing, at worst 186cm like Rampage says. Jaden's coming up for 17 now, at the age where most people are coming towards the end of any significant growth being unlikely. He might be a late bloomer, though, but I don't think he'll grow that much more, let alone his dads height.

Hey Rob, I think we should ad Jayden Smith's height to this site. He's gonna be 17 in July and chances are almost %100 that even if he hasn't finished growing, he's not gonna grow any more than 1" before he turns 18.
john said on 22/May/15

Danimal said on 21/May/15
Listed at 5'11" in the late 80's (teen magazine promoting his DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince rap career). How much he grew after that I'm not sure, but he WAS shorter than 6'1" Isiah Thomas in the early 90's (he was fully grown by then) and that cannot, nor should it be ignored. 6'0" and change for Will imo.

Genetics are weird. A tall father (Will Smith) and a small mother (Jada Pinkett) have two kind of short children (still growing, I know, but it looks like they're going to be below average). In my case, both my parents are 1'65 m (5'5'') and my brother is 6' and I'm 5'7''. Weird.

You people put too much stock in pictures, which can be quite deceptive. I'd go with 186, but the guys not under 185cm. Get over it.
Dejavu said on 7/Mar/15
Thing with will smith is that he never really stands straight in photos. His posture is relaxed. Search for his photos with morgan freeman, he looks the same as freeman
Silent_D said on 4/Mar/15
186cm.
grizz said on 23/Feb/15
just because he looked 185,doesn't mean he actually is.
I trust celebheight 6'1.5 -always thought he was 6'2 until I saw this website :D Well, 6'1.5 is close enough.
It's just he always carries a relaxed posture. He even commented his lousy posture on "I, Robot".
James B said on 20/Feb/15
Looked 185cm in Men in Black and Independence Day
Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" said on 15/Feb/15
He's a legit 187 CM in person as we were exactly the same height when I encountered him. Anything below 186 CM is insane.
Moriarty said on 7/Feb/15
Looks like Daminal is making a career out of one 4 second clip!

The lowballers need to keep in mind that in the few pics that include Will Smith and Nicole Kidman, she is in heels. He's always taller. She is undistibutedly 5-11.75 in flat shoes and would get owned if she dared to wear them in a pic with him.
Pierre said on 4/Feb/15
Will Smith in dance with Jimmy Fallon is ~5 cms? more than Jimmy Fallon with~
similar shoes.Jimmy Fallon's height is listed 182cms(5/11.5)but he's maybe shorter(he seem have advantageous shoes in some tv broadcasts)

Un the film "xix degrees of separación will is 3 inches short than donald sutherland un this time sutherland was over 60
Judd said on 27/Jan/15
Danimal, maybe rob didn't downgrade him because he's not sure that Will is 6'1" and I agree with him. As I said before, I think smith is a example of a 186 cms guy, so 6'1.25-1.5" is fair!

I cannot think Will Smith at 6'1" and Jeff Bridges at 6'1.5"!
I think it's likelier Bridges at 6'0.5-1" (peak) and Smith at 6'1.25"!
Danimal said on 22/Jan/15
Cannot believe you haven't lowered him to 6'1" yet Rob. This should have been a New Years resolution for you. You know that it's the popular consensus on here and has been for several years now.
the shredder said on 21/Jan/15
He looks 6'1 with Ralph Machcio
Lillo Thomas said on 20/Jan/15
Nope Will is 6' 1 at best. 6'2 is crazy talk.
Judd said on 20/Jan/15
I think Will is 0,25" shorter than me, and I am 187 cms...he's between 186 and 186,5 cms IMO!
Both 6'1.25" and 6'1.5" are ok!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/15
I could go for 186cm but nothing below that. Generally, he looks near his claim and most likely measures it early morning.

If I am being honest i find it hard to picture will smith at a full 6'1.5. 6'1.25 or 6'1 I could picture but 187cm just seems a bit extreme.
lelman said on 6/Jan/15
He is only 16 now though, how tall would you say he is? He looks taller than 5'7" to me. Think he could at least reach 5'11"?
[Editor Rob: not sure of his exact height today, but he looks a bit less than average. I'll see in 2 years if he gains a few inches more.]

Rob, do you think it's possible Jaden Smith will reach this height?

Silent_D said on 16/Dec/14
I just don't believe he was 6 foot 2 since he was 13. That suggests he might be taller in his twenties. I don't know anyone that stops growing at 13. He was never 6 foot 2 to begin with. I think he is 186cm.
Addicted to height said on 11/Dec/14
My thought is that his lowest height could be 187cm and his largest 191cm
Dejavu said on 7/Dec/14
I thought he edged out rodrigo santoro who is 6,2
Celebheights 188 CM said on 4/Dec/14
He edges out Roger Federer by .25", and he's about even with Novak Djokovic. If he's 184 CM, then Novak is 184 CM as well, with Andy Murray being 186 CM. This would put Morgan Freeman at 185-186 CM as well. It would also put Ashton Kutcher at 185-186 CM.

Will smith looks shorter cause he weighs like 195 pounds.

Like hugh jackman he's naturally small framed and has to work hard to gain muscle. His natural weight if he did not workout would be more like 166 pounds.

Where do you get this info from? Are you his doctor?

oh yes of course, he's a weak 6'1...so jon voight and kevin kline (peak) are 6'1 too, morgan freeman 6'1-1.25", bill pullman 6'0.5" and jeff goldblum was just 6'3.5-75" at peak...
i repeat, in my opinion will is a strong 6'1.25" with a good chance to be 6'1.5", but he looks taller than a flat 6'1...

Will smith was the same height as Jon Voight, who looked at least 187 today next to Liev Schreiber. Will smith is minimum 186 and 187 is closer.
KROC said on 16/Oct/14
I saw a picture of him with an old pastor on Facebook. If my pastor is 5'10 then that would make Will a weak 6'1. The picture was taken during the filming of Hancock I believe.
Danimal said on 15/Oct/14
[Editor Rob: it was only 4 seconds of walking, and that is tough to really say much, and there might have been a 1 degree camera tilt on Isiah's side.]

So, at best he was the same height as him (based on that still photo), which would put him at nothing over a flat 6'1", even though he did appear shorter in the video.

I think Will is for sure 6'1.25" with a good chance to be 6'1.5"

6'1" Isiah Thomas was taller than Will, so he's not over 6'1".

6'1 flat plus boots he's gonna be 6'2.5

Thing is, I don't seem him at even a flat 6'1". More like 6'0.5" at best considering 6'1" Isiah Thomas was taller than him.

No. If will is just 6'1 then Adam Baldwin can't be taller than 6'3.5, Tommy Lee Jones can't be taller than 5'11.5" (peak height), etc etc...
I wouldn't put will below 6'1.25". He maybe can reach 6'1.5" on a good day...
I think he had the same size as Pierce Brosnan.
Andrea said on 11/Oct/14
I think most of the people here would agree a 6'1 flat listing would be much more appropriate for Will! But, of course, Rob will keep him at 6'1.5 (which could be his morning height, yeah...). Rob, does Will pay you too? Like Arnie?
Arch Stanton said on 10/Oct/14
I actually think he was being honest at 6'2-6'2.5" but was claiming the height he got measured at in shoes.

Rob any chance you could add a photo of him, looking, eh, 5 ft 11?
184.3cm said on 5/Oct/14
6'1 range. We have the photo of Evander Holyfield with Rob who he pegged 186cm. Holyfield guest starred on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and they were very similar. I would say 186-187.

I am very skeptical regarding the fact Will could be shorter than 6'1 "...
comments that claims that he is 6 foot or something like that seem (to me)
stupid and foolish...was bigger like close to 4 inches. Will is deluded about his height.

How is saying Will Smith at 6'0" is stupid and foolish according to you, when 6'1" Isiah Thomas (who could have been 6'0.5") was taller than Will Smith, wearing the same basketball shoes and standing side by side with him. Will was already in this early 20's, so he was fully grown by that point and probably at his very tallest.

His 6'2.5 claim is very funny and calling james avery 6'3 is hilarious. James avery has 3 inches on him in the later seasons . In the first seasons the gap was bigger like close to 4 inches. Will is deluded about his height.

James Avery was taller than 6'4" Chevy Chase in the 1985 movie Fletch.
Dr0b said on 1/Oct/14
I use to think will smith was a legit 6'2 . I measured most"6,2" guys to his stature but digging throw some images I came across one with him and isiah Thomas who was listed at 6'1 but could've been 6'0.5..his 6'2 claim is looking shaky. I'm thinking 6'1.25 max in his prime but 6'1 on an average day. I believe his built gives of the impression of a 6'2 similar to how denzels may give him a 6'1 lool when in reality he's only 6'0.25

There is actually a 6'2 guy who post on this site a lot and he wears elevators. Smith claimed 6'2.5 which means he probably boosts himself a tad.

6'1" - 6'2" every day dudes do not wear lifts lol. If they do, then it's for a role or something like Daniel Day Lewis for Lincoln or wrestling. 6'1" - 6'2" is the goldilocks zone for male height, there's simply no reason for any man to feel anxious about their height in that range.

I swear, for the 10-ish years I've browsed this site, it's always been: "We don't know, so... LIFTS!" Easy and cop-out answer.
Clay said on 19/Sep/14
Who's to say Will wouldn't wear lifts here and there? 5'10.5 Brad Pitt is not short yet he busts out some of Hollywood's finest, Will is tall as is in his bare feet at 6'1'' but he could as well to give off an even taller vibe.

Isiah Thomas is not 6'1. He's 6ft at best. If he was 6'1 then they would have listed him as 6'3. That's just how the NBA works.

The NBA usually lists their players in their MASSIVE size 17-20" + basketball shoes, which give close to 2" in height. SOME players are just listed as their barefoot height. I believe they have the option to decide which of the 2 they want. That said, I'm sure a guy who is 6'0.5" or 6'0.75" is getting a 6'1" listing and a guy who is 6'0.25" is getting a flat 6'0". Isiah Thomas might have been listed barefoot at 6'1", but could have been as low as 6'0.5", or as high as 6'1.25", which would have been Will at around 6'0", or fractionally over that (but UNDER 6'1" for sure).

Nah, it was very real. I assure you of that Rob! Here in Canada, when you were in Elementary/Primary school, you were given a selection of books you could order and one of them was this teen book. It literally has 100's of teens and stars in their 20's too, with full page bio's, including Ralph Macchio, Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe, Tom Cruise, Charlie Sheen, Will Smith, Matt Damon, Michael J. Fox, C Thomas Howell, and a many other guys and girls too. I was born in 1977 (I think we're about the same age Rob), so this would have been in the late 80's. Anyway, there was no way I would have ever thought to keep it, knowing that almost 30 years later I would have to scan some of the profiles and post them here! haha
[Editor Rob: these kind of books are always of interest, as I like to find early examples of what actors had been described at.]

He seemed to me like a 6ft2 guy when I watched him as a kind in Fresh Prince. But now, with better judgement, I give him 6ft1.25 (186 cm). Video with 186 cm Holyfield makes Smith slightly taller. But we didn't see what kind of footwear they wore. I bet Will wore some tall Timberland shoes and Evander had some convers sneakers.

I DID have an old teen magazine (was my sisters) circa 1987/1988 and Will Smith was featured in there. He was highlighted because of his success with then DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince and they listed height, weight and likes dislikes of all the stars of the day (Michael J Fox, Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen, Rob Lowe, Mat Dillon, etc) and they had Will Smith at 5'11". He COULD have grown a bit since that listing, considering he would have been in his late teens (18 or 19) at the time? But in all honesty, probably not much over 6'0" when fully grown (by 21-22 when he stood next to Isiah Thomas).
