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". On Dec 8th 2000 in The Mirror Newspaper he is quoted: "The last thing I want to be is a 5ft 7ins guy walking down the street with a 6ft 2ins model, like, 'Hey! Look at me! Look what I can get now I got my d**k caught in my zipper".

Is this possible he can be measured to 167 range? Rob?
[Editor Rob: I doubt he'd measure that low.]
jtm said on 2/Aug/15
look at him with dustin hoffman. this listing is still generous.
Mshaqs said on 29/Jul/15
He looks 5 foot 7 to me, he might end up a bit under that at days end.
CD said on 26/Jun/15
Yeah solid 168 / 5ft 6.25 like Jonah Hill and Sean Astin. Surprisingly wears thin sneakers a lot of the time and would likely measure just about 5ft 7 in those ones above.
OK123 said on 23/Jun/15
very solid 168cm
mande2013 said on 19/Jun/15
I really think he's more weak 5'7 than flat 5'6, so 169cm range may be more accurate.
george209 said on 9/Jun/15
Rob, I'm pretty sure he's a solid 5'7?
Lorne??? said on 3/Apr/15
Yeah, this makes sense. Alba looks a bit taller, and she's more 168 herself!
S.J.H said on 3/Apr/15
Nail it! For long i suspect his this tall.
Andrea said on 12/Feb/15
Rob, what made you drop half an inch?
[Editor Rob: I think he more often looks 168.]

He looks like a dwarf in comparison to Vince Vaughn in Dodgeball xD (;

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 said on 5/Nov/14
That 1/2 inch can be removed.
bandet said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 13/Aug/14
maybe he is at least as listed , 5'7 is not that hard to buy for him.
Dmeyer said on 11/Aug/14
In person seemed about 5'7 for some reason
fsd said on 1/Aug/14
looks 5'5ft
5ft7 in bare feet said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 10/May/14
I believe 175 lbs at some point.
I\\\'m right said on 3/Mar/14
I'm smart. Ben Stiller is about 5'7 1/2. His father is 5'6" spparently.
dmeyer said 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 said on 25/Jan/14
Is listed as 5'7.5 on a dating site in "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty".
Troy buckmen said on 24/Jan/14
He only looks a couple inches taller than listed 5'3.5 Patton oswalt
Adamz said on 19/Jan/14
What do we have to go on? Looks real short in movies.
avi said on 6/Jan/14

In the picture you look over inches taller. Is 5'5.5 possible?
richkid123 said 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 said on 19/Dec/13
Looks about a flat 5'6.
the shredder said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 26/Sep/13
He was only a little bit taller than Jennifer Aniston who is 5 ft 5.
Balrog said on 26/Sep/13
I think a downgrade would be fine. Click Here
Cnut the Great said on 20/Sep/13

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

me said 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 said on 25/Jan/13
5'6'' flat
Nick said 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 said on 12/Dec/12
over 5'6 is damn big joke. 166-167cm top
Dmeyer said on 15/Oct/12
I met him hé looks more 5'6.5-6.75 than 5'6 flat
matt678 said on 1/Oct/12
downey wearslike 3 inch lifts that make him 5 ft11 benstillers a solid 5ft6
Louis said on 25/Sep/12
downey jr. towers him, i'd be surprised if he's anything over 164
Silent d said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 21/Aug/12
Same height as Jack Black, who is about 5'6".

MaskDeMasque said on 6/Aug/12

lifts probably. there's no way stiller is taller than 5'6.5.
Marc said 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 said on 2/Aug/12
He is 3 inches taller than 5''3 Dustin Hoffman so i think Ben Stiller is 167cm
BigT said on 30/Jul/12
166 cm
Shaun said on 16/Jun/12
Spot on in my opinion, maybe 5'6" at lowest.
Dem said on 29/Jan/12
