Ben Stiller's Height is 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".

Comment on the Height of Ben Stiller

Robbin said on 24/Sep/15
The camera angle from PR photos pushes ben look like 5'4 guy in senakers. But i believe he was at least 5'5.5 , 5'7 with footwear perhaps
losdako said on 21/Aug/15
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.]
vilgotaan said on 20/Jan/15
He looks like a dwarf in comparison to Vince Vaughn in Dodgeball xD (;

Ben is actually 5' 5" in bare feet.....and, of course , varies with shoes.

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.

truth said on 22/Oct/13
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.

Why is people's height listed about one inch less on Celebheights? Just in general.

I think that height is about right for him, great actor though.. Anyways all the funny actors short!

I doubt he is liftless. 168cm for stiller.

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".

Same height as Jack Black, who is about 5'6".

lifts probably. there's no way stiller is taller than 5'6.5.

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
Close to 170cm in person
Alex said on 14/Oct/07
Dmeyer, you're what height for most of the day? 5'11 1/2?
dmeyer said on 10/Oct/07
considering i had 1cm more footwear but he had 1.5 to 2cm wigg i think there is no adavantage but i can look 6'0.5 in many pics like i look only 0.5 to 0.75 in under ll cool j and garett hedlund i worked 4 days with stiller is close enaugh 5'7 i dont think he is 5'6 flat i think rob has him right but i agree he dosnt look over 5'6.5 in the pic
Alex said on 9/Oct/07
Glenn, Stiller can look 5'8 at least sometimes on TV but really the guy is 5'6.
glenn said on 8/Oct/07
i say 5-6.
sf said on 8/Oct/07
It's taking some time, but we are slowly whittling away at Stiller's height - I'd say we are getting pretty close...
Kristina said on 7/Oct/07
5'7"...are you sure? its not that he cant be that tall but look how much taller everyone is compared to him...everyone cant be 6'5". Ben Stiller has got to be around 5'4" at best.
mark said on 29/Sep/07
He can't be any taller than 5'4" and the only good movie he has done is Zoolander, which isn't very good. I have never spent a dime on this guy's films. His father and mother are both very talented.
leonari said on 11/Sep/07
Rob: How come you don't have his father listed? JERRY STILLER. A Legend. He deserves a listing on this great site!
chaz said on 10/Sep/07
ben stiller might be 5'7 at best, as for jerry stiller how do they have that guy at 5'6 he is a midget i bet he is no more than 5'4, he looks like a panzy in king of queens, 5 foot 4 is more realistic
facts said on 2/Sep/07
I know for a fact you are taller in the morning than in the evening. That usually can explain height variations, on celebrity heights or any person for that matter. When I was in the military, I was measured barefoot twice a year for the Physical conditionating tests usually mid day at 5'7.5. I have been measured 5'8 before , usually early in the morning. Just out of curiousity I recently started measuring myself at night and minutes after waking up. I am about 5'7.80 in the morning and then I can drop to as low as 5'7.25 depending on how bad my posture is. There are plates in your spine that replenish at night.
dave said on 22/Aug/07
Glenn has .5/1 inch on him with a lean. Stiller cant be anything more than the listed 5'6.75, but nothing under 5'6 either.
glenn said on 20/Jul/07
seemed 5-6 to me too.weird angle going on in my pic.
Alex said on 19/Jul/07
Ben Stiller can come across taller like 5'8 in some of his movies but with Dmeyer this guy looks no more than 5'6.
corey said on 18/Jul/07
sorry, forgot to mention that Jack Black is said to be 5'6. so that inch that is between them is why i say that Ben Stiller is 5'7.
corey said on 18/Jul/07
i think ben is 5'7. in a scene on the movie Envy, Ben and Jsck Black are walking beside each other and you can see an inch between them.
antron said on 15/Jul/07
The pic with DMeyer is actually not so helpful because it is easier to compare things that are more similar in size than dissimilar. It is easy to be off a couple cm when judging Stiller next to a man nearly 6ft. I think a picture of Stiller with Tom Cruise, Sly and Mel Gibson would be quite interesting no?
Alex said on 9/Jul/07
I was watching There is something about Mary last night and Cameron Diaz who is 5'9 barefoot and was 2 inches taller than Ben Stiller who was in shoes making this guy 5'6ish. But I tell you he can look taller in his movies though.
PC said on 29/Jun/07
Actually jennifer aniston is 5'5" max (that is the highest she has claimed). Was she in heels next to Stiller? That would make sense, as I strongly reckon stiller is a weak 5'6 at best. The perspective on the right pic doesnt do the difference between Glenn and Stiller justice.
david said on 29/Jun/07
In along cam poly with jennifer ainston he was shorter than her, and jennifer is 5"6 168cm. So this guy is clearly 5"5- 5"5 1/2 no way tallert than 5"6 or borderline 5"6.
Arjun said on 12/Jun/07
He could have some help in his shoes with Glenn.
Alex said on 10/Jun/07
In the past I thought Stiller was taller than he really was, but with Dmeyer there is a good 5 inch difference putting him at 5'6-5'6.5, but with Glenn he looks more 5'7 though.
Arjun said on 10/Jun/07
Exactly Aaron, Stiller is at least 5 inches shorter than Dmeyer in that pic, even the top of his wig does'nt reach Dmeyer's ears. However, his posture is'nt as good as Dmeyer's, plus Dmeyer has a little bigger footwear.
5'6" is quite possible for him IMO, but more than that is hard to argue based on this pic.
Aaron said on 2/Jun/07
Based on the pic with dmeyer, I'm leaning towards what matt said on may 31. I think we can trust dmeyer, since he is not a celeb and is more likely to be honest with his height than the 5'7 that stiller claimed in the quote above. Looks to me like dmeyer has an easy 5 inches on stiller, with six inches being very possible, so that puts Stiller in the 5'5"/5'6" range. However, he looks close in height to glenn who we know is in the 5'7.5"/5'8" range. Perhaps he was getting some help with his footwear in the pic with glenn. Glenn, do you remember what kind of shoes he had on when he took that pic with you?
Matt said on 31/May/07
He looked tiny in the episode of Friends he guested in. Absolutely dominated by Schwimmer, Perry and Kudrow, and looked absolutely no taller than Aniston. Check out his final scene where he confronts them all in the hallway. Bit of a shocker, as I thought he was a solid 5'7"; after seeing that episode, I'd have him nearer 5'5".
dmeyer said on 30/May/07
i did have 1 cm more shoes and better posture but i have no hair under the cap and the cap is flat
MD said on 30/May/07
He needs to be brought down to a realistic height. Near 5'7" he's not.
Anonymous said on 30/May/07
I agree with you Drew. Dmeyer is 5'11 and he looks about 6 inches taller than Stiller there.
the shredder said on 30/May/07
I think Rob should give Stiller 5'6.5 ! ... He is at most his 5'7 claim , but looks around 5'6 a lot because of poor posture . So 5'6.5 seems to be the mark !
Drew said on 29/May/07
With Dmeyer he looks 5'5". I mean, the top of his head seems to reach dmeyer's nose. Is he barefoot there? How tall did he look Dmeyer?

[Editor Rob: to be fair with glenn, glenn does have a little lean, with meyer he does look no more 169cm giving him lesser trainers+poorer posture, which he has a fair bit. He might have had 1/2 inch lift in night at the museum, they put raver in bunny shoes for one scene.]
Leung said on 20/May/07
I watched Night at the Museum DVD on the weekend and I was amused at how Stiller’s height fluctuates throughout the movie. Early in the movie he appears slightly taller than Robin Williams but later in the film he is the same and other times he is shorter. Also, Stiller looks similar height to Ricky Gervias early in the film but later on he is noticeably shorter than Gervias.

Sometimes he is 5’6” and sometimes he is 5’7”
Brad said on 13/May/07
I've met Jack Black, he's dead on 5' 6". That photo of Stiller with Black makes him 5' 6" also. What kind of height enhancing shoe is he with Glenn?
Viper said on 12/May/07
There is no way in hell Stiller is 5-7.
marines said on 12/May/07
On that photo on right Ben looks exact the same hight as Glenn.
the shredder said on 12/May/07
Rob , do you think Benjamin could be just 5'6 that Glennjamin saw ?
16and5'7.25'' said on 11/May/07
glenn in your photo it looks like he's trying to push you! but yeah, i think ben's 5'6-5'7''
Brad said on 11/May/07
He's really short. He must love being next to Dustin.
janice said on 5/May/07
ben stiller hes really short & always wear big lifted shoe.. 5ft5(166cm)sounds better..
Drew said on 2/May/07
Rob I can't figure out why you're not listing 170cm as 5'7"...

[Editor Rob: height is stored in feet/inches. The cm value is derived from that, hence 5ft 6.75 = 169.545. I round to nearest cm up or down]

the shredder said on 23/Apr/07
I don't understand why Rob has Myers and Lawrence at 5'7 and Stiller 5'6.75 ? ... Stiller was taller then Myers at the Mtv awards in 1997 and Myers and Lawrence were both same height at the 2003 awards ! ... Myers and Lawrence both being 5'7 , would put Stiller at no smaller then 171cm or 5'7.5 ! ... He looks 5'7 max with Glenn and DMeyer , so Myers and Lawrence should be listed at most Stillers listing ! ... They are all under 5 foot 7 !
TheJerk said on 12/Apr/07
Rob, are you and Stiller good pals? I think Stiller must like you very much to have overestimated him 3/4 of an inch. Please list me at 5-11 and 3/4.
sam said on 9/Apr/07
Stewart actually says he's 5'7", but "can play 5'6"". If Robbins was to stand up in that second photo, you probably wouldn't be able to his head!

dmeyer said on 5/Apr/07
my girlfriend is 5'7.25 and the differance is less than between me and stiller plus stiller as a big weeg on witout it he would be under my nose but maybe his posure wasnt the best but he is clearly in the 5'6.5 to 5'6.75 range
MD said on 5/Apr/07
Rob, you how are you seeing anything over 5'6" for Stiller? Really.
5'11 guy said on 3/Apr/07
I'm 5'11.5. The difference in height between Dmeyer and Stiller is about the same as between me and my mother, who is 5'6.
PJ said on 28/Mar/07
I've bumped into Ben And Jon Stewart ... Jon's slightly taller. 5'6 for Ben, 5'6.5 for Jon.
anonymous said on 25/Feb/07
Is DMeyer wearing taller shoes than the ones of Stiller? Because that's not a difference of only 11 cms there. Yet he doesn't look much shorter than Glenn in that other picture. Or is DMeyer over a step or something there?
MD said on 13/Jan/07
Again, I think the photos I posted of him and 5'6" Jack Black are probably some of the best proof knowing that Black is almost certainly not a lift wearer, and especially in that photo.
sf said on 13/Jan/07
We're slowly whittling away at Stiller's height!!! Remember - Stillers' got a big wig on with Dmeyer too...probably adds a little to his height.
aussie bloke said on 13/Jan/07
He's gotta be shorter than 5ft7 straight outta bed, DMeyer TOWERS over him, looks around 6 inches taller, yet DMeyer is 5ft11, so Ben would have to be 5ft6 at the very most
Glenn said on 12/Jan/07
While I dont think he is 5-4,5-5.I dont think he is 5-7,5-8.5-6 suits me fine.
Evan said on 11/Jan/07
I'm 5'5" and I swear that when I talked to Stiller (at UCLA, it was a very depressing talk with him because it was before There's Something About Mary and almost no one was there) I was taller than him.
MD said on 8/Jan/07
5'6" Jon Stewart was, at most, .25 inches taller than Ben, but that still means there is no way Ben can be ANYTHING over 5'6". 5'6.75" is probably a full inch off, especially seeing him with Jack Black and Jon Stewart.
Anonymous said on 8/Jan/07
Tom Cruise looked to be at least an inch taller when they were standing side by side in that MTV awards "Tom Crooze" spoof.
Polska said on 4/Jan/07
Just saw him on the Daily Show. He and Jon Stewart stood next to each other awkwardly for a couple of secs. Jon was atleast half an inch taller. Maybe a full inch taller.
MD said on 25/Dec/06
It would be different if he were slightly taller than Stewart, but the guy was exactly as tall as Jon if not a tiny, tiny bit shorter. I guess you'd have to see it.
leonari said on 24/Dec/06
Thanks sf. So Rob? Glenn also rather sees 5'6"...Well whatever.

[Editor Rob: I can see the possiblity, and knowing for instance how Kim Raver looked in person to me and seeing her standing with stiller at recent night at musuem premieres, a little can be chipped away]
sf said on 22/Dec/06
leonari - I'm with you, and always have been. I just can't give Stiller 5'7"...
MD said on 22/Dec/06
He's definitely 5'6", though. I mean Jack Black and then seeing him with Jon Stewart. We can pretty well assume Jack Black wasn't wearing lifts in the photos I posted. 5'6" makes sense, too, taking into account the "two inch" rule.
Glenn said on 22/Dec/06
Im confused cause of the 5-7 claims,and he does look 5-7 in my photo.saw him twice.I couldve sworn 5-6ish.
leonari said on 22/Dec/06
Glenn: Why are you saying" guess I'm wrong" when stating that he looked 5'6ish to you ? I truly think you are spot on when it comes to Stiller !!! Since day one (when I started posting on this site) I tried to convince Rob that Stiller is 5'6"- And seeing him next to Jack Black, Jon Stewart: I'm even more convinced than ever that this guy is indeed 5'6" not a tad above nor below. Don't you agree GLENN?
Glenn said on 22/Dec/06
Thats weird about Stewart cause John is 5-6!
heightfan said on 22/Dec/06
I saw the Daily Show appearance also and Stewart def appeared taller. Jon doesn't seem to be the type og guy to wear lifts, in fact if I was to wager I would think Stiller would hve more of a reason to look taller. (being a movie star)
Glenn said on 22/Dec/06
I thought he looked 5-6ish.guess Im wrong.
sam said on 21/Dec/06
Yeah, the Daily Show with Stewart was surprising, because Stewart seemed slightly taller. This got me thinking about De Niro, because he doesn't seem to be much more than an inch taller than Stiller...what was your estimate of Stiller's height, Glenn?
MD said on 20/Dec/06
Oh, he was just on the Daily Show with 5'6" Jon Stewart and looked just as tall if not even slightly shorter than Jon. I'm convinced he's no more than 5'6".
Alex said on 20/Dec/06
I actually thought he was 5'8 or a bit more maybe but seeing him with Glenn he only appears 5'7.
sunbeame said on 17/Dec/06
Describes himself as 5'7 in this months 'cosmopolitan' magazine.
dmeyer said on 13/Nov/06
stiller is over 5'6 but under 5'8 he could be 5'7.25 with good posture

Yea, Rob is still ignoring the evidence on this one. No way is Stiller taller than 5'6". DMeyer's pic provest that pretty well, as well as a lot of the evidence on this board.

PADRAIG - While Rob's away, you have to change this!
Del Mar said on 24/Sep/06
My 5-8 friend looks the same height next to me and I'm barely above 182 with 183, so I actually do think Stiller looks 5-8! Might sound crazy but that's how it seems to me....
kene said on 16/Sep/06
hes 5ft5(166cm) in real.. pic above his wearing lift-up standing beside glenn.. comfirm and sure he can't be tom cruise height.. tom apear in mtv video music award in 1999 stand close to ben was 2inches(5~6cm)over ben..
leonari said on 16/Aug/06
He is 5'6" ...It's obvious.
sf said on 15/Aug/06
Have we still got Stiller at 5'7"??!! Rob - what the he@#!!!
6\'5 project dude said on 9/Aug/06
Rob, that picture with glen and ben is why i say glen is .........

[Editor Rob: some pictures will mask height. Did you say you had 'seen glenn' in person?]
trueheight said on 22/Jul/06
theres a video on youtube i posted in the Johnny Depp thread. Stiller maintains good posture throughout but Depp is his camera-shy self. In instants when Depp straightened he had a clear 4in advantage on Stiller. The descrepancy hasta be w/ Stiller being 5'6 b/c most of the PotC2 premiere pics show Depp to be pretty average in height

I'd have to say no taller than 5'6", just look at how small he is in every movie. Not even 5'7", no way
Anonymous said on 10/Jul/06
i don't really know how tall he is, but i'm 1.67 m and he was shorter than me! He really is a short guy, funny, but short
RR said on 7/Jul/06
I met him on his Reality Bites jaunt and he was shorter that I by 1 - 2 inches and I am 5'6". I would say he is 5'4" - 5'5".
sf said on 20/May/06
Yes, he's obviously sitting, thus the intended humor of my comment...
Johnny D. said on 18/May/06
Tim Robbins is actually half leaning/sitting in that picture, right? Or are Stiller and Stewart have become the "lift masters" leaving Stallone in the dust?
Azarea said on 13/May/06
Just imagine susan sarandon next to stiller! but he seriously looks smaller than jon stewart.
Gonzalo said on 9/May/06
I never thought Stiller was taller than Robbins. I`m shocked! Is then Ben Stiller 6`7?
sf said on 30/Apr/06
Wow! Ben Stiller's taller than Tim Robbins!
dmeyer said on 23/Apr/06
just so you guys know i have good posture in pics wish make me look taller than i am i dont think stiller is under 5'7 171 cm is verry possible

[Editor Rob: yeah, this is why Stiller can look shorter sometimes...for sure in some pics he can look struggling with 5ft 7]
D. Ray Morton said on 7/Apr/06
Nice pic, dmeyer. Thanks for sharing.

Ben looks about 5'5".
Glenn said on 7/Apr/06
How have you been SF? Im not mad at you anymore.
Joe said on 7/Apr/06
In my humble opinion, he is just under 5'7. 5'6.75 but hey i could be wrong!
sf said on 7/Apr/06
I hate to agree with Glenn, but Stiller's no taller than 5'6"!

Just kidding, Glenn.
dmeyer said on 6/Apr/06
trueheight said on 6/Apr/06
So Dmeyer is 5'11.5 right? from the top of your head to below your ears is a good 5 inches making him 'look' 5'6.5 in this pic. any comments about footwear dmeyer?
Glenn said on 5/Apr/06
he's 5-6.but then again so is hoffman.wasnt hoffman slighly taller in some scenes? or Im a nuts?
dmeyer said on 5/Apr/06
you'r right he had a big wig on
sf said on 5/Apr/06
That's a short 5'7! yea, he's hunched a little bit but he's also got that big wig on!
dmeyer said on 5/Apr/06
from wath i remember he was in the 5'7 to 7.25 range
sf said on 5/Apr/06
Rob - that picture has Stiller looking no taller than 5'6" to me, if dmeyer is the height he says he is.

[Editor Rob: yes, trying to be fair with Stiller posture though. That could be something to give him...we know he can look this short - 5ft 6 - as in meet fockers.]
dmeyer said on 5/Apr/06
so rob wath do you think i think anyting from 169 to 171 is possible

[Editor Rob: yes, he looks actually nearer 169-70 with you, although not sure if he has as good posture though?]
Editor Rob said on 5/Apr/06
182cm Dmeyer has sent us his pic of Stiller. In this pic, many would say Stiller actually looks struggling with 170-1cm!
dmeyer said on 3/Apr/06
hey rob i am the 182 that worked on dodgball
Glenn said on 1/Apr/06
I think he was yelling out to a friend to wait up for up for him.
sf said on 19/Mar/06
Yes, I agree - Stiller was taller than Hoffman in the movie. Still, no taller than 5'6" and 1/2! Just 3/4ths of an inch to go, Rob!
leonari said on 19/Mar/06
Yes of course he was taller than Hoffman...but barely...He was wearing sneakers throughout the movie...Hoffman most of the time barefoot or sandals...and I firmly believe Hoffman is not a tad over 5.5" these days which makes Stiller a solid 5'6" -5'6.5 but not above that mark...Almost 5'8" is out of the question!
Parker said on 18/Mar/06
Its funny how people see different things. I've seen Meet the Fockers on numerous occasions and Stiller always looked taller than Hoffmann to me

[Editor Rob: he was taller, posture wise in that film he can look short of course...]
trueheight said on 16/Mar/06
what really bothers me is that he was a bit shorter than Dustin Hoffman in Meet the Fockers, and Hoffman was wearing sandals so no lifts
tgri said on 5/Mar/06
he looks 5'6 to 5'7.5 to me
dmeyer said on 22/Feb/06
hey rob i am the the celebheight reader who said he was 5'7" max but since i saw the pic i have with him again he is just under my eyes probably 11 cm diference 170 171 is possible but not 5'8" because then the differance wouldnt be that big
trueheight said on 29/Jan/06
What is REALLY curious is in Meet the Fockers, Hoffman appeared in some shots to be as tall or even TALLER(???) than Stiller. The clincher is that Hoffman was in 1.5in(at the most) sandals and Stiller was in dress shoes...very wierd
Ball-A-Hallic said on 28/Jan/06
Even thought ben and glenn are a little tilted, Ben looks as if hes standin str8 and glenn's leanin so Ben's probally 5'7 he sure does look it.
sf said on 26/Jan/06
That's right, Glenn. I saw the same thing, or something similar, and Cruise was taller by at least an inch, standing side by side. Another reason I downgrade Stiller's height. Again, who knows about lifts, though?
Glenn said on 25/Jan/06
stiller played tom cruise on some talk show as a goof,and the real cruise got on the show and was 2 inches taller!
Anonymous said on 24/Jan/06
Ha ha, I would like to see Stiller and Tom Cruise in a movie arguing face to face, head to head because it would be funny to see two people the same height fight.
Danimal said on 20/Jan/06
He's at least 5'7" standing next to Glenn.
Glenn said on 18/Jan/06
he can look 5-6.
sf said on 18/Jan/06
Yea, adding the lifts in his shoes and with Glenn leaning...still don't think he's taller than 5'6" and 1/2...
dmeyer said on 19/Nov/05
hey i am the extra who is 182 cm 171 is possible
Mr. R said on 15/Aug/05
This picture of Ben with his dad partially confirms my sighting. I say Jerry Stiller is about 5-3 when I met him at Carroll O'Connor's funeral. This pic puts Ben between 5-6 and 5-7. However, I cannot deny the presence of lifts.
Mr. R said on 12/Aug/05
that pic with Hoffman and Wahlberg is interesting. Hoffman has definitely lost height, but not THAT much. I think that Markie Mark defintely has some lift/boot action going on in that pic!
Mr. R said on 12/Aug/05
Thanks Sticks! I am ALWAYS sincere when I give my eyewitness accounts - certainly accuracy is another story! When I saw Ben, he was dating Calista Flockhart, who was with him that night in New York at the Tony Awards. They walked past me on the street, and he seemed about 2 inches taller than her. She runs about 5-5 to 5-6, so this is why I said that 5-7 is not out of the question. Also, I have met his father Jerry and he is about 5-3, and Ben is always pictured as being taller than his dad. So 5-6 to 5-7 seems about right. Of course, I cannot deny the presence of the almighty lift!
Mr. R said on 12/Aug/05
I have seen Ben Stiller from a distance, when he was dating the Ally McBeal lady. 5-7 is not too far off the mark. I saw his father at a funeral, and he is about 5-3, so if we can find any pics with he and his father, we may be able to get an accurate figure!
Scott said on 16/Jul/05
For UK visitors to this site, this week's cover to Radio Times featuring the celeb extras in Ricky Gervais' new show .. 'Extras' is quite eye opening.

Although I fear that all the Stiller height reducists [myself included] will find it to be heracy ... I believe the editor might have to put Ben back up to his original grading.

He doesn't even look overly small next to 6'3 Samuel Jackson.

Of course it could be a photoshop composite picture ...

[Editor Rob: Ok, I will keep an eye on Stiller and Gervais in this show (they threw out a publicity shot with Gervais slightly taller than Stiller and then the radio times one makes stiller look 5ft 9 ;) )...BUT, I saw a quote about Gervais from a guy who said: "Height - Ricky's a bit of a short arse. He must be, he's smaller than me, and I'm only 5'8"...]
leonari said on 31/May/05
I almost agree with you dear Mr. EDITOR but you have to consider that Dustin Hoffman is 66 years old. Most people have lost some height at this age, I would assume like 0.5 inch. Now as you pointed out correctly Hoff is often barefoot in this flick or wearing small heel sandals. So if Hoffman shrunk a bit he is a tad over 5'5" nowadays if his claim of 5'5 3/4 was correct when he was young. I watched the movie again yesterday and I can't find a single frame where Stiller looked 2 full or more inches taler than Hoffman, plus Stiller is wearing sneakers most of the movie which are for sure a bit higher than Hoffman Sandals. I am convinced now that Stiller is 5'6.5 on the mark. I would suggest that you downgrade him to this height. This guy isn't above 170 cm. NEVER! Plus in the pics provided by smoke proves my point : he does look at least 3.5 inches shorter than Owen wilson who I believe is a real 5'10"
CelebHeights Editor said on 31/May/05
In Meet the Fockers the multitude of angles used made Stiller look as short as 5ft 6 and as tall as 5ft 8. Ignoring DeNiro (who looks to be shrinking), but looking at those scenes with Hoffman (where hoff was barefoot and in low heeled footwear) I think Stiller is more 170cm, absolute max 171.
J. said on 21/Apr/05
A quote from Stiller:
"The last thing I want is to be a 5-foot-2 guy walking down the street with a 6-foot-2 model. Like, 'Look at me! Look what I can get now I got my dick caught in a zipper."
