Plenty of us have probably had dreams about getting to fight alongside Wolverine or dance under the bright lights of the circus with P.T. Barnum from the film “The Greatest Show.” However, in order to make sure those fantasies are accurate, the dreamer should know the answer to the question “How tall is Hugh Jackman?”

Australian actor, singer, and dancer Hugh Jackman measures up at 6 feet and 2 inches tall. This is equal to 188 centimeters in height, and puts him at nearly a foot taller than the average man in his home country of Australia.

In this article, you’ll learn the weight, height, age, and so much more about everyone’s favorite charming star, Hugh Jackman. We’ll go over a few more key details about the Wolverine-playing hero so that you can learn a bit more about this interesting professional. Let’s get started!

How Tall is Hugh Jackman?

Everyone who has seen Hugh Jackman spin around a Broadway stage playing the villainous Gaston from “Beauty and the Beast,” or watched him decimate his enemies as the title character of the movie “Wolverine,” can remember what this outstanding actor looks like.

However striking his physical appearance may be, the question of Australian actor Hugh Jackman’s height can still prompt curiosity. Actually, Hugh Jackman’s exact height is 188 centimeters, otherwise known as about 6 feet and an additional 2 inches tall.

This makes Hugh Jackman, as previously mentioned, even taller than the usual male specimens from Australia, his home country. He’s far taller than the average male in the United States, too, being nearly a foot higher from head to toe than Healthline’s reported average at 5 feet and 6 inches.

This was actually a bit of a problem for the filmmakers of one of Hugh Jackman’s most groundbreaking roles in “X-Men,” where he played a nearly-unstoppable mutant and superhero, Wolverine, or Logan.

You see, in the original comic books which the movie is based on, the character of Wolverine is a stockier specimen, only reaching 5 feet and 3 inches in height. What he lacks in inches, the character is known to make up for in sheer power and ferocity, and there is no doubt that Hugh Jackman brought this personality to life on screen!

That being said, it was very important that comic book fans be able to see their favorite characters looking like themselves in a movie format. Therefore, the filmmakers of X-Men had Hugh Jackman’s costars, like James Marsden, wear platform shoes so that they looked subtly taller than the startlingly lofty Hugh Jackman!

This has actually probably contributed to some of the Internet’s general confusion about Hugh Jackman. Because his films require several other actors to look roughly his same height or even taller, like in “X-Men,” fans are sometimes under the mistaken impression that Hugh Jackman cannot possibly be as tall as 6’2.

How Much Does Hugh Jackman Weigh?

Hugh Jackman’s height is far from the only very impressive thing about him. The Australian actor is 187 pounds in weight, otherwise known as 82 kilograms. This is a remarkable feat for Hugh Jackman, who underwent one of the most drastic physical changes to pack on muscle as he played the role of super-muscular character Wolverine.

Hugh Jackman is known to bench press barbell rows, exercise with knee bends, and generally commit himself to intense physical regimens to keep up this physique. He actually utilized a diet of eating about 8,300 calories every day, consisting of clean proteins like Patagonia salmon, black bass, and even two grass-fed sirloin steaks!

Remember, all of that energy intake was usually burned off in working out, but it explains why so much of the 6 ’10 actor’s impressive height is described in well-defined muscle.

How Old is Hugh Jackman?

With his incredible physique, it is no wonder that Hugh Jackman’s height and weight are far from the only surprising things about him. In all actuality, Hugh Jackman usually passes for something like a late-30s to early-40s guy.  However, you should know that Hugh Jackman is actually 54 years old!

That’s right—hard as it may be to believe with his energy and bearing, Hugh Jackman was born in the year 1968 in Sydney, Australia. He shares his birthday, October 12th, with Hunger Games actor Josh Hutcherson, and famous film actress Daliah Lavi.

What is Hugh Jackman’s Net Worth?

A celebrity (or any person’s) net worth is calculated by summing up everything they own, or assets, including the money they have earned. It is a great way to get an idea of how much their work has earned them over the years.

Hugh Jackman’s net worth is $180 million! He may have jump started these earnings with Wolverine’s role in the Marvel X-Men film series, but he certainly did not stop there. Hugh Jackman has also voiced characters for children in films like “Flushed Away,” and “Happy Feet,” as well as playing the Easter Bunny in fantastical hero film, “Rise of the Guardians.”

Not only that, but Hugh Jackman earned a Tony Award for working on “The Boy From Oz,” as well as getting to have an Emmy Award for hosting the Tony Awards so well!

Besides that, he’s worked alongside other notable actors and actresses like Scarlett Johansson, Christian Bale, and Halle Berry. He’s even been on a world concert tour where he shows off talents like singing and dancing called “The Man. The Music. The Show.”

Finally, in 2005, Hugh Jackman formed his own production company called “Seed Productions.” He’s dedicated much of this wealth to philanthropic efforts like advising the Global Poverty Project and supporting The Art of Elysium.

In Conclusion

To sum it all up, Hugh Jackman’s height is 6 feet and 2 inches. This came as a surprise to many fans of his work in Marvel’s “X-Men” franchise, where he played one of the characters he is best-known for, stockier superhero Wolverine.

With his impressive physique, unique talent, and all-around good-natured charm, Hugh Jackman has been wowing audiences with more than just his height!
