Mark Wahlberg's Real Height

"I work as hard as anybody will ever work and I like that. That's why I've been successful and that is when I feel good about myself. If I do my damnedest and don't succeed, I feel good about the effort."

~ Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg is Hollywood's top-tier commodity who has escaped the wrath of apes in the Planet of the Apes (2001), survived death sentence in Pain & Gain (2013), dealt with alien robots two times in the Transformers series (2014-2017), and had many more such fun adventures.

About Mark Wahlberg's Real Height

Where height is concerned Mark Wahlberg stands in a strange place. On one hand, he doesn't think that he is short (neither does he looks many times) and on the other hand, some people do think that he is on the shorter side (he looks short many times).

Mark himself has claimed to be 5'10" tall in the past, but if truth be told, he doesn't look anywhere close to it. He looked more than three inches shorter than Leonardo DiCaprio (5'11.5") in The Departed (2006) and around two inches shorter than Matt Damon (5'10"). After many such height comparisons, we are more convinced than ever that Mark Wahlberg is closer to 5'8" in real life than any other number. 

Which would make him a height twin with people like Tom Cruise, Zac Efron, Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, Kanye West, and many more such big names - Hollywood is filled with quality 5'8" guys - nothing to be ashamed of this height.

The real height of Mark Wahlberg is

5'8" or 173 cm

"I did a lot of things that I regretted and I certainly paid for my mistakes. You have to go and ask for forgiveness and it wasn't until I really started doing good and doing right, by other people as well as myself, that I really started to feel that guilt go away. So I don't have a problem going to sleep at night."
