Will Smith 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 films such as Men In Black, Independence Day, Bad Boys and Enemy of the State. In BlackFilm.com 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". In 2006 maybe decided he deserved another half inch, as he began to say: "I'm 6ft 2.5".

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

Smith would clear 6ft2 out of bed with ease. Solid 6ft1.5, no question.
Darren510 says on 24/Sep/14
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.
Judd says on 23/Sep/14
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...
The Horse of FUNK says on 19/Sep/14
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 says 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.

Neither posture is that good or bad, and Will Smith looks around 6'1" there.
Lillo thomas says on 18/Sep/14
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 B says on 17/Sep/14
Smith claims 6'2 1/2 yet he called James Avery "6'3"..............................
jamie179cm says on 17/Sep/14
there is no need for a 6ft1 guy to wear lifts because 6ft1 is tall
jamie179cm says on 17/Sep/14
the horse of funk actually in some picture i saw will smith have about 1.5 heel on his shoe but still think he is a 185cm guy due to his body frame
The Horse of FUNK says on 17/Sep/14
"Darren510 says on 16/Sep/14
I think Smith is 6'1- 6'1.5 and wears lifts sometimes. I met him years ago and he appeared about 6'3. There is no way he is really 6'3."

I'm sorry, but do you know how ridiculous it is to claim a 6'1" person wearing lifts is? You pretty much destroy any credibility you had with that claim.

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).

I think he is 1.88 cm

Maybe in big sneakers.

Will smith 6'1.5
Dwaune Johnson 6'2.5-6'2.75

6'1" Isiah Thomas was taller than Will Smith.

[Editor Rob: this sounds a bit like Frank's mystery magazine.

Tom's unfortunately now 5ft 5 in some newspapers, he'd probably take the 5ft 6.75 now, at some point I'm expecting a newspaper to give him 5ft 4!]

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.]
Lillo Thomas says on 14/Sep/14
Lol Will never looked 6'2.5 in timberlands. He looked a bit taller with them but never 6'2.5. James B I bet you would think I'm like 6'7 if you meet me in person. Lol
James B says on 13/Sep/14
Grizz- will didn't wear timberlands until the later seasons of fresh prince. In his timberlands he looked about 6'2 1/2.
judd says on 13/Sep/14
@grizz:

i give him 6'1-6'1.5"...sometimes he looks 6'1 but other slightly taller...
grizz says on 12/Sep/14
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.
judd says on 11/Sep/14
Harry Connick jr is not a genuine 6'1! Time ago he passed for a 6' and i think he's close to 6' than 6'1...I think he's 6'0.25'', same size of David Duchovny...
The shredder says on 11/Sep/14
When Evander stands better he has about 1/2 on him.
James B says on 9/Sep/14
With evander who rob estimated at 185-186cm will smith 100 percent looks over 6'1 and just look how poor his posture is...............

Arch Stanton says on 6/Sep/14
@Danimal, no offense but those magazines are hardly a reliable source for heights. One of my sister's magazines from the early 90s had Tom Cruise at 5 ft 5 and Jason Priestley at 5 ft 9!

This book (wasn't a magazine) had Tom Cruise at 5'6 3/4".

In independence day Will smith is easily taller than harry connick jr who looks 6ft 1 next to Hilary Swank in Ps I love you.
Indy says on 6/Sep/14
Dwayne is tall. Hes 6'1 in 2014.

And Will obviously has some footwear advantage with Holyfield since we know hes shorter than 6'0 Thomas.
Arch Stanton says on 6/Sep/14
LOL I see we've gone sub 6 ft now! I really don't get the "Will Smith and Dwayne Johnson aren't tall" movement on here....

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).

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.

Not always? Steve Nash is an example of a 6'1 barefoot guy getting listed at 6'3'' when he's 6'2.5 in his shoes. Shaq is an example of a 7'1'' barefoot dude getting listed at 7'1'' and he's actually close to 7'3'' in those shoes.

Was Will clear cut taller than Hollyfield?
James B says on 4/Sep/14
Didn't look over 185cm in independence day
AlexMahone says on 4/Sep/14
Amaze: yes, yor're right. My fault, 5'11 is 180cm. That's why Viper joke is more funny...

smith was taller than evander holyfield on fresh prince. rob has a shot with holyfield, rob also has a shot of his 188cm friend standing with holyfield.

Guess what guys , my friend who was recently measured 6'1.5 in shoes is the same guy that said Will is no taller than him , so 6'0.5 , 6'0.75 is about right barefoot

I may not agree with you on some other of your estimates, but I agree with you on this one. We can't ignore that Will was shorter than 6'1" listed Isiah Thomas and was several inches shorter than Bill Oreilly. He's a strong 6'0" guy, but not much over that.

To be honest I wouldn't be surprised by a 6'0.5 evening measurement.
James B says on 2/Sep/14
Well to be fair to viper will smith looked under 6'1.5 in men in black, Independence Day, I am legend, I robot and hitched

5'11 is BS though
Wollenski says on 2/Sep/14
i would bet 6'1-1,25 for willSmith and 6'0.5-0.75 for Pullman...(but not much more than 10 USD :))
AlexMahone says on 2/Sep/14
5'11 (183cm) for Smith? Viper, please go to hell! :))) Really....And what about Bill Pullman? He was the same height like Smith in "Independence Day".... He shrunk as well and maybe 5'10.75? :))What you make year by year is boooring....
jamie179cm says on 31/Aug/14
5ft11 is BS he looks like 6ft1 guy to me i can't see him under that he looks tall
Amaze says on 28/Aug/14
lol 5'11 for will smith? PAHAHAHAHAHA
face it haters he's not below 6'0. he's more than 6'0 too. quit the BS.
He's 6'1, no shorter or taller. downgraders grow up.
James B says on 24/Aug/14
Come on guys give will smith a break and stop downgrading. He's one of hollywoods nice guys.
buckets says on 21/Aug/14
Denial is insanity. I guess Isiah Thomas is over 6'2 then.

Face it, hes 5'11. Clearly looks shorter than 6'0 Isiah Thomas on video wearing the same style sneakers. No lifts fooling you.
James B says on 21/Aug/14
5'11 is insanity
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in says on 21/Aug/14
Probably calling this 6 ft 2.5 measurement in shoes

5'11'' just doesn't work.
miko says on 15/Aug/14
Easy 6'1 guy, probably wakes at 6'2.
shoes says on 15/Aug/14
Isiah Thomas is 6'0, not 6'1.

Will has always been 5'11 dating back to the late 80s when he was listed at 5'11.

Jay Z was wearing lifts with Ross. 6'0.4 Larry Johnson has always looked taller than him.
James B says on 14/Aug/14
Jay Z was taller than johnathan Ross
Andrea says on 13/Aug/14
Shredder, i wouldn't list him any less than 6'1 to be fair... Well, a fraction under it wouldn't surprise me at all but i think he generally can look a 6'1 guy.
the shredder says on 13/Aug/14
I can see a little under 6'1. It seems believable. 6'0 flat is a tad too short but he is not over 6'1.
Danimal says on 12/Aug/14
Pavilion says on 7/Aug/14
5'11 Max. Shorter than 6'0 Isiah Thomas on video.

You're right that he was shorter than Isiah Thomas, but Isiah Thomas was listed at 6'1", not 6'0".

Jules says on 12/Aug/14
Jay Z is 5'11 as he looks it with measured athletes, even more evidence that Will is 5'11.

Will, Jay Z, and LL Cool J are all fake 6'1.5 listed guys who are 5'11.
James B says on 12/Aug/14
Avery was 195cm in the early seasons of fresh prince and 194cm in the later seasons.

Lillo Thomas says on 11/Aug/14
You said the same BS a million times James B. Repeating the same BS will not make it true. Will smith never looked 6'2 or 6'3 in fresh prince. In the first 2 or 3 seasons of fresh prince James Avery looked 3.5- to almost 4 inches taller than Will smith. In the later seasons the difference seem smaller , between 2-3 inches. Maybe james Avery at that point lose a bit from his peak height. Will smith is 6'1 max nothing more.

Sorry for my english, I refuse to use Google translator, i'm trying to get better , I think i go change my nickname for bad english hahaha
James B says on 10/Aug/14
Looked 6'1 (185cm) in men in black 1.

I have said this a gazillions times already but when he wore timberlands in the fresh prince he could actually pass for 6'2.5 or even 6'3 and held his own against 'then' 6'4.5 James Avery. In the first fresh prince episode looked like a typical lanky 6'2 African American basketball player. During the 1989-1991 fresh prince seasons avery was around 6'5 and he really could dominate will smith in terms of height. In the 1992-1996 seasons though James looked closer to 6'4 than 6'5 in my opinion.
184.9 on a bad day says on 10/Aug/14
He is shoulder to shoulder with damon wayans and Jay z. I still think he is not under 186 and to be fair he looks more than a 1 cm taller than Holyfield and in this scene he talk with uncle Phil and looks what he usually look in the show.
Pavilion says on 7/Aug/14
5'11 Max. Shorter than 6'0 Isiah Thomas on video.
the shredder says on 3/Aug/14
Yea , I bet he is no more than 6'1 , Martin Lawrence is no more than 5 or 6 inches shorter and he is listed 5'7
Andrea says on 2/Aug/14
I would bet my house on him being shorter than the challenger 8, who is not even 6'1.5! How much is the question... 6'1 is a good shout but his claims are quite hilarious!
James B says on 21/Jul/14
6'1.5 max
MrTBlack says on 19/Jul/14
Yeah I agree not under 6'1". I'd say this listing is his absolute highest though.
Alex 6'0 says on 11/Jul/14
He's more than 6'0 that's for sure. He's not his 6'2-6'2.5 claim either. I think 6'1 is perfect for him.
184.9 on a bad day says on 9/Jul/14
@avery_t
I doubt he is only 6 ft. Look this video, her body frame is so long for a 6ft guy. He is AT LEAST 185.5

Click Here
184.9 on a bad day says on 8/Jul/14
Rob, do you think he is only 6ft- 6ft 1?
I'm think 1.86.5 is fine for him.
[Editor Rob: at times he can look like a weak 6ft 1 guy, but I think standing tall he's got to be in 6ft 1 range.]
jamieorr4 says on 8/Jul/14
avery_t well if thats true then hes not a tall guy i don't considered a guy under 61 tall just my opinion though
Mike T says on 6/Jul/14
His son is probably won't grow much more. I bet ya that he'll be 5'7" or about 5'8". I went through the same crap. My mom is about 5'2" and my dad is 6'3" and I only got to be 5'8.5 (or 5'9" because I'm close enough to claim that.)
the shredder says on 6/Jul/14
My friend that is 6'1 said he is no taller than him.
avery_t says on 4/Jul/14
maybe 6 feet. Not 6' 2". I jsut walked past him and his family/entourage in the Battery Park marina in NYC. They were getting on a yacht (perhaps to view the fireworks). He's 6 ft tops. But He looks 37 and is in Captain America shape. He looks really, really good. But not over 6 ft. I'm 5' 7" (5' 8" in high tops) and he was 4 inches taller.
giulio says on 3/Jul/14
6'1 not 6'2
james says on 24/Jun/14
He's just underneath 6'2 with his shoes oon, so he's a strong 6'1. With them off he just surfaces 6'1. Therefore, he is 6'1 with his shoes off, 6'1/ 6'2 shoes on.

He have poor posture. He could be 186 but no less
He edge out Evander Holyfield
He same height as Kevin Kline
with Denzel Washington and Tom hanks he looks about 1.87
Alex 6'0 says on 7/Jun/14
In a magazine I seen in high school he wrote down 6'3 so that's the tallest he has even claimed but it seems usually 6'2 he claims. Calling his height in shoes or just wants to say 6'2. Could be anything but he doesn't look a 6'2 guy for sure. I think 6'1 flat fits him well. Some could argue even nearer 6'0.5
jamieorr4 says on 7/Jun/14
sorry i meant to say his slim famer makes him look 62
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 6/Jun/14
Novak Djokovic is likely more likely 186 CM by the way, so that would put Will at 184-185.
jamieorr4 says on 6/Jun/14
61 at the lowest he is obviously a tall guy look at his built and his slim does make look 62 imo
the shredder says on 5/Jun/14
I don't think he is this tall. Martin Lawrence , Adam Baldwin , Goldbloom , Avery , Jordan all make him 6'1.
MarcusTheSwede says on 2/Jun/14
Its time to downgrade. Agree withg Peyman. Will is great but in every single movie especially I am Legend he wears thick boots and he is same height as Nadal. 185.186 at best. This is generous. He is NOT 187.
Gonzalo says on 2/Jun/14
He looks short next to Michael Jordan. Actors always look shorter next to sportsmen. There are plenty of examples for that. Will Smith doesn´t look 1´87 next to Michael Jordan or Roger Federer or Paolo Maldini. Mysteries.....
Peyman says on 30/May/14
6ft 0.75in
no less, no more
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 28/May/14
He also isn't much shorter than Hugh Jackman with Will Smith having bad posture and could be identical with him if you break down the hair:

Click Here

He actually might be taller than him with even posture, so I'll assume this:

Will Smith: 6'1.5"/187 CM
Hugh Jackman: 6'1"/185 CM (he's not 6'2" as he was edged out by Jim Carrey as well, along with Adrian Peterson whose measured as 6'1.5"/187 CM).
the shredder says on 26/May/14
With Globloom and Baldwin he is in boots and looks 6'1.5
Andrea says on 25/May/14
Yeah, and to be honest, he does look more than just 1.5 inches shorter than The Rock there... Of course, that is just a pic but as i already said in the past i really wouldn't put Will much over 6'1... I'd be shocked if he got measured near 6'1.5 by evening...
Alex 6'0 says on 25/May/14
Here with The Rock. Can't see any footwear but likely pretty similar footwear with minimal advantage. Looks at least 1.5 inches but depending how tall Rock really is. I have Rock at 6'2.5 and it puts Smith 6'1ish

Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 24/May/14
He claims 6'2" in I, Robot as well and actually did look closer to 6'2" than to 6'1".
Appe4 says on 19/May/14
He is shorter than 187 djokovic and very similar to rafa nadal. 185-186 for him. Time to downgrade rob!
Clay says on 11/May/14
Not much taller than Jackie Chan lmao? He looks 5-6 inches taller there.
runt says on 7/May/14
watching old episodes of Fresh Prince, I think some people over-estimate the height difference between James Avery and Will Smith because Avery was so imposing. In the episodes I was watching, Will's head is very high up and his level is always well above Avery's mouth RIP.

Example go to :30

He also looks 6 feet by Michael Jordan here:

Why are there so many photos that suggest that he's six feet tall?
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 4/May/14
Just watched him on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air by Bo Jackson whose listed as 6'1, and Will may've been .25"-5" taller. However, I don't think that Bo is even close to a full 6'1" as he barely has 3 inches on Deion Sanders.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 21/Apr/14
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.

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...
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
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 6/Apr/14

Later morning: 6'1.5/187 CM

Evening: 6'1 1/8

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?

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 .

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...
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

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 here...you 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

They are identical when both have good posture.

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:

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
James says on 26/Dec/13
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.
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 .
