Ben Stiller height: 5ft 6in (168 cm)

American actor best known for starring in movies like Meet The Parents, Night at the Museum, Tropic Thunder and There's Something about Mary. He said in tvguide when filming keeping the faith beside 5ft 10 Jenna Elfman that he needed "shoe lifts and a sense of humor in bed".

Rob, what made you drop half an inch?
[Editor Rob: I think he more often looks 168.]

This site is funny. Firstly 5'7 claim jonah hill is not a single mm shorter than ben stiller but get listed 5'6 and stiller 5'6.5 while secondly charles barkley eho claim 6'4.75 was 3inch over 6'3 listed here dwayne johnson
Realist says on 5/Nov/14
That 1/2 inch can be removed.
bandet says on 23/Oct/14
There is no way Stiller is taller than Cruise - 'Markus' Where do you get that from?! Cruise is at the least an inch taller. I know rob has him at 5ft7.75 but i would wager a hefty bet that Cruise is around 5ft8.25
Markus from Italy says on 13/Oct/14
I think Stiller's taller than Cruise. There's plenty of images on the web showing that Stiller is taller (bare foot) than Cruise on heels so if Stiller is 169 cm than cruise is at least 4 cm shorter.
Sam says on 19/Aug/14
Hmm, he might just be edged out by Jon Stewart. Stiller's one of the few guest Stewart meets on even ground.
Sam says on 13/Aug/14
He does look only a fraction taller than 5'6" Jack Black and very close to 5'6.25" Jonah Hill so I guess this is accurate.
the shredder says on 13/Aug/14
maybe he is at least as listed , 5'7 is not that hard to buy for him.
Dmeyer says on 11/Aug/14
In person seemed about 5'7 for some reason
fsd says on 1/Aug/14
looks 5'5ft
5ft7 in bare feet says on 22/Jun/14
Between 5'6 and 5'7 sounds about right to me. 175 sounds way heavier than he looks in any of his movies. Unless he stopped exercising and developed a beer gut between movies. He's usually in pretty good shape.
Dmeyer says on 15/Jun/14
Rob i met Stiller i think 169cm is his low height Wakes at 171cm you had him 5'7.25 8 yrs ago , can look 170cm at Times so 169 is good i dont think he is just 168cm
edguy282 says on 5/Jun/14
Based on @seahawksfan pictures, I'd give the following heights:

167cm Jack Black
169cm Ben Stiller
173cm Robert Downey Jr.
Damon says on 13/May/14
175 lbs?!! That's pretty crazy. He was fairly muscular in Tropic Thunder and may have come near 165 lbs, which, for a 5'6.5 guy is fairly built. But, from what I've seen, he hasn't kept that figure and seems more like 150 lbs. He's never had very big legs
Clay says on 10/May/14
I believe 175 lbs at some point.
I\\\'m right says on 3/Mar/14
I'm smart. Ben Stiller is about 5'7 1/2. His father is 5'6" spparently.
dmeyer says on 26/Jan/14
in pics i tend to look 6 ft or 6 ft 0.5 in but he didnt look shorter than 5 ft 6.5 in person
Christian says on 25/Jan/14
Is listed as 5'7.5 on a dating site in "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty".
Troy buckmen says on 24/Jan/14
He only looks a couple inches taller than listed 5'3.5 Patton oswalt
Adamz says on 19/Jan/14
What do we have to go on? Looks real short in movies.
avi says on 6/Jan/14

In the picture you look over inches taller. Is 5'5.5 possible?
richkid123 says on 2/Jan/14
@SeaHawksfan That is not a .75-1 inch difference with Jack Black. More like a few millimeters maybe. I think he is flat 5'6". For some reason Bieber looks taller than him though.
Powerhouse says on 19/Dec/13
Looks about a flat 5'6.
the shredder says on 8/Dec/13
5'7 is not crazy but 175 Lbs? I say 155.

I think Stiller is 168cm flat at night tops. He has not started shrinking, he was always 5ft6-7 anyway he looked it in movies. 5ft8 is a blatant lie.
avery_t says on 21/Oct/13
men don't start to shrink until their late 50's. people DO shrink, but it happens much later in life that people under 25 think it does.
Yves says on 18/Oct/13
I don't understand how people now rating him lower than 5'7, he maybe now 5'7 but before he was taller than 5'8 that's for sure.
avery_t says on 16/Oct/13
I'm 5' 7.5" at breakfast and 5' 7" in the afternoon. I'm Jewish and about the same age as Stiller (4 years younger). Anyhow, once when I was leaving Equinox is NYC, Greta Gerwig checked me out (she was sitting in the lounge area on a laptop). It was about the time she made that movie with Stiller. From this, I deduce that I am the exact same height as Stiller and vice versa, which would make him 5' 7" at lunch.
tinybubbles says on 14/Oct/13
Saw him last night at the Mill Valley Film Festival. He looked fabulous! I was a few feet away and compared him to my height. Accounting for his dress shoes, I would say he is 5'6".
Pauline says on 26/Sep/13
He was only a little bit taller than Jennifer Aniston who is 5 ft 5.
Balrog says on 26/Sep/13

He is 5'5" tops. 5'7" is sms adjusted.
Mike T says on 1/Aug/13
5'5" Tom Cruise has 2 inches on him and he's like 5'7"
Mandy says on 31/Jul/13
He is only 2 inches taller than his dad who is 5'3.
Jason says on 24/Jul/13
Why is people's height listed about one inch less on Celebheights? Just in general.
teej says on 1/Jul/13
I think that height is about right for him, great actor though.. Anyways all the funny actors short!
Silent d says on 23/Jun/13
I doubt he is liftless. 168cm for stiller.
Parker says on 22/Jun/13
A liftless Cruise looks 2 inches of the listings is off.

me says on 4/Feb/13
I've seen him wearing his lift shoes before and he seems to be more than 5'7" with them on, I'm guestimating he's actually closer to his dad's height of 5'5.5"
Balrog says on 25/Jan/13
5'6'' flat
Mikey T says on 20/Jan/13
Google says that he claims 5'8"(173cm)
[Editor Rob: they're trying to get in on the heights the last couple of years.

the only difference is celebheights is run by a human who has an interest in the topic.

Google is trying to answer the question, but is taking data from sites which might not be mine ;)]
Nick says on 8/Jan/13
Saw him in person in NYC, I was 5'8 at the time and had at least 2 inches on him, similar footwear, he can't be anything over 5'6 IMO
Steven says on 12/Dec/12
over 5'6 is damn big joke. 166-167cm top
Dmeyer says on 15/Oct/12
I met him hé looks more 5'6.5-6.75 than 5'6 flat
matt678 says on 1/Oct/12
downey wearslike 3 inch lifts that make him 5 ft11 benstillers a solid 5ft6
Louis says on 25/Sep/12
downey jr. towers him, i'd be surprised if he's anything over 164
Silent d says on 18/Sep/12
169cm. He has bad posture. Actually all comedic actors have bad posture. I think it makes them funnier. Emma stone was wearing at least 4 inch heels. It's the oscars. She is not going to wear flats.
Christian says on 13/Sep/12
A friend of mine is filming with Stiller on Iceland. He said Stiller was just under 170 cm so I think Rob is pretty spot on.
johnnyfive says on 5/Sep/12
I think Stiller is between 5'4, or 5'5 MAX. 5'6 listed Emma Stone dwarfed him at the Academy Awards this year. If they were the same height, the difference cannot be this much, I don't care how big her heels are under that dress.

Went to madam tusaauds in San Antonio and they had a wax model of Stiller that they claim was accurate to him in real life. He was maybe 5'4".
Dan says on 21/Aug/12
Same height as Jack Black, who is about 5'6".

MaskDeMasque says on 6/Aug/12

lifts probably. there's no way stiller is taller than 5'6.5.
Marc says on 5/Aug/12
i just saw neighbor hood watch and he looks maybe an inch and half or even two inches taller than 5ft6 jonah hill
bill says on 2/Aug/12
He is 3 inches taller than 5''3 Dustin Hoffman so i think Ben Stiller is 167cm
BigT says on 30/Jul/12
166 cm
Shaun says on 16/Jun/12
Spot on in my opinion, maybe 5'6" at lowest.
Dem says on 29/Jan/12
Close to 170cm in person
