Gerard Butler Height

"The thing about courage is it’s something that we have to learn and relearn our whole lives.  It’s not just in you, it’s in every choice we make every day."

~ Gerard Butler

Famous Scottish actor, Gerard Butler is known for his fine work in movies such as 300, London Has Fallen, The Phantom of the Opera, The Bounty Hunter -- among many others.

As the standard of Hollywood actors goes Gerard Butler is a pretty big guy (not as big as he looked in 300 though). He is listed as 6-feet-2 inches tall on most of the websites on the internet and he surely appears to be in that range.

But after taking a careful look at him and comparing his height to that of some other interesting people like Tom Hardy (5'9"), Hugh Jackman (6'2"), Morgan Freeman (6'2½"), and some others, we think Gerard's real height may lie somewhere between 6-feet-1 inches to 6-feet-2 inches.

Gerard Butler's height twin in Hollywood would be Hugh Jackman (though Hugh was a bit taller in his prime at 6'2").

The real height of Gerard Butler is

6'1½" or 187 cm
