Elijah Wood Height

Amazing actor Elijah Wood has starred in many great movies such as  Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Sin City, The Last Witch Hunter, etc.

But he will probably be forever known for his role of Frodo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

Everyone seems to know that Elijah Wood is not tall, but that doesn't mean that he is a hobbit in real life as well. Child actors as a rule never grow into tall adults.

This rule applies to Elijah Wood as well -- he was a child actor too and he never grew into a tall adult.

So Elijah Wood is short but how short exactly?

Well, you must know Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) -- another child actor and Elijah Wood lookalike who never grew into a tall adult as well.

And by a freaky coincidence -- Elijah Wood is very close to Daniel Radcliffe's height as well.

Elijah has mentioned his height as 5'6" in the past, but after taking a careful look at him, and comparing his height to that of people like him Martin Freeman (5'6½"), Katie Holmes (5'9"), Orlando Bloom (5'10½"), etc, we think he is around 5'5" in real life.

So Frodo is around half an inch taller than Harry Potter after all.

The height of Elijah Wood is

5'5" or 165 cm
