About Jim Carrey's Real Height

There is something funny about Jim Carrey's height (no pun intended), perhaps it is that he doesn't look tall in movies... not at all. But nevertheless, he is as tall as someone like Hugh Jackman or he claims to be. In the movie Liar, Liar, Mr. Carrey's character claims to be six feet two inches tall. Well, if we go with the name of the movie... we don't know what to trust...

Anyway, after carefully looking at Mr. Carrey and comparing him to a number of other celebrities, we think Jim Carrey is really a tall man -- he may not look like it due to his slouching and slinking around in movies, but he is as tall as people like Will Smith, Hugh Jackman, David Letterman -- all of them nearly 6'2" tall (though Hugh Jackman was a full 6'2" in his prime).

The real height of Jim Carrey is

6'1½" or 187 cm
