How tall is Brad Pitt ?

Brad Pitt's Height is 5ft 11in (180 cm)

American actor best known for movies such as Se7en, Fight Club, Snatch, Oceans Thirteen, Troy and World War Z. A newspaper article on heights (washington post) quoted as saying people had seen Pitt put down 5ft 10 on an audition form for his height. Well, before he was A-list, aged 24 he wrote his own height as 5ft 11 in a teen magazine profile. At times he can appear taller, but with impeccable posture and at times, in the last few years, cuban type heels, that is a given. Even his good friend George Clooney was wise to his footwear, saying once in USA Today that "He's tall. He's like 6-1. It's irritating."

Comment on the Height of Brad Pitt

Dan said on 29/Nov/15
I've always said it. Pitt can't be shorter than 5-10. It's the perfect height. A solid 5-10 with his bone structure is perfect. He's always been too fit and muscular to be any taller. If he were 6-0 he would've probably been some kind of athlete. If you look at the pics of Pitt and Gosling sitting down at a screening of big short in New York, you'll see that by their proportions sitting down, gosling is indeed an inch or two taller than Pitt. Gosling's legs are longer. It would be reasonable to assume that Gosling is indeed 6-0 or close to because Hollywood has become a lot more height conscious on the time he's been an a-list actor. In contrast to twenty years ago when Pitt became famous, an actor could still be about 5-9 and considered tall. Now, everyone has to lift for movies. Example is Robert Downey Jr and his 5 inch heels for iron man.
Joe said on 29/Nov/15
Pitt's shoes alone are probably giving him .75 inches over Gosling, plus an additional .75 or more from his lifts. Gosling is clearly the taller and larger-framed person.

I would know because when I shop for shoes, I always get ones with the highest heels. The difference between a generously heeled shoe and more modest one can be up to an inch, especially for dress shoes. That's also why I hate being barefoot around my friends because the relative advantage I have from my shoes is eliminated. Pitt is the same way, only to a more extreme degree since he uses lifts in addition to very high-heeled shoes. Isn't it odd that there isn't a single picture of him barefoot next to someone (except Gwyneth Paltrow in which he barely looks taller)? Also, given that he uses favorable footwear, wouldn't he do it in order to have his Hollywood listing (5'11'') be greater than his actual height? If he were 5'11'' barefoot at night, then of course he'd claim 6'0'' or 6'1''.

He looks 6'1 in all photos above

This is a revealing shot of his shoes of this event which clearly shows that they are not ordinary dress shoes

Click Here

If you zoom closely to his left shoe you can clearly see the side of his foot pushed against it and how massively elevated its position is. He is more or less walking on his shoes, not in them
Editor Rob: some small lifts or small elevators are hard to tell. A half inch internal lift and a 1.2 heel and suddenly it can give a decent boost over another guy with a 1 inch heel...

Abc said on 29/Nov/15
Sorry dmeyer, but once again you prove that you are absolutely clueless regarding height enhancing footwear.

Click Here

The guy next to Pitt wears a regular dress shoe that gives about 2,5 - 3 cm.
Compare the position of their feet and how the front of pitt's foot is massively pushed against the laces, he is basically tiptoeing in this shoes. They give 5-6 cm minimum
Blink said on 29/Nov/15
I've said it once and I'll say it again: Brad will never measure below 5'11 flat in my honest opinion and there's a strong chance he's a bit above that mark, 5'11.25-5'11.5.
Dmeyer said on 29/Nov/15
considering pitt shoes look normal he pulls off easy 5'11.75 near gosling
Dmeyer said on 29/Nov/15
those shoes he wore near gosling dont even look more than 3cm so he barely has 0.5-1cm more shoes max and yet look very close in height with a guy who is aleast 186cm in shoes or maybe gosling is just a 182.5-183cm guy
hijopotamus said on 28/Nov/15
heylo, are you kidding??? those are very tricky shoes!!
Elias said on 28/Nov/15
Brad Pitt looks 6ft - 6'0.5 next to Ryan Gosling. It's impossible for Pitt to be under 5'11. He is definitely a very strong 5'11,or even a week 6ft.My guess for him is 182 cm.
Allie said on 27/Nov/15
5'10-5'11. I wouldn't guess anything over or below that range imo..

Joe said on 27/Nov/15

Brad Pitt looks like he's wearing some serious lifts next to Gosling, who would clearly be the taller person if they were both barefoot.

Also, the way he's bending in the last picture looks a lot more like a woman wearing high heels than a man wearing normal dress shoes.
Dmeyer said on 27/Nov/15
Click Here , even if brad stand slightly better and has 1cm more shoes that gives him 2-2.5cm since ryan stands ok so ryan is aleast 6'1.25-1.5in shoes on its hard to see pitt under 5'11
Heylo said on 27/Nov/15
Ted, yes, he looks to have some cm on Gosling on some of the photos but I actually think Gosling was a bit taller if you look at more photos... Not much though. Looked like a 181cm vs 183cm situation.
Ted said on 27/Nov/15
Guys, I really think he is doing some kind of magic. I mean, look, just check out the photos of his latest appearance for the movie By the Sea. He looks the same height as Jolie, maybe a cm taller. Although most of the time we see him having 2 inches over her. How is that?

I was curious to see him standing next to 6ft Gosling and Bale in The Big Short. And was surprised to him having 1 or 2 cm over Gosling. And he was not wearing boots or anything.

I mean this guy is clearly over 5'11. That's for sure.
Heylo said on 27/Nov/15
Dan, haha maybe that's just the way he likes to stand, who knows? I know that people sometimes comments on my very straight posture and I have always had that very straight posture... It's not something I've thought of just too look taller or anything, I've done it since I was a kid. Brad could obviously be height conscious but also have that posture "naturally". I know myself that I feel very weird changing my posture so it looks more "relaxed", It's just not me. I could imagine the same for a lot of other people so why not for Brad.

I saw those pictures with Gosling. Brad certainly looks his listed height, depending on angle, even taller than 5'11, more like 5'11.5.
But Gosling often had a more relaxed neck and shoulder posture which made him very close to Brad's height in some photos. When they both looked completely straight, you could see that one inch difference pretty clearly.
Here's photos:

Keep in mind that Ryan may look taller than usual because of his facial structure difference in compared to Brad. Brad has a very wide face, Ryan, quite rectangle like which makes him look slimmer overall.

Here's photos of their shoes:

Doesn't look like anything special to me, he could not get a massive amount of height from those but I'm certainly no expert. I could imagine at most two inches from those shoes (including potential small lifts will say).
We will probably see Brad next to Christian Bale in the upcoming weeks as well?

Dan said on 23/Nov/15
So Brad just showed up to the premiere of the big short and was photographed next to Gosling. He looks about the same height but also looks about an inch shorter in a few pics. The guy obviously really knows how to look 5-11


Barefooted Gosling is 6'0" even, Pitt is - at the very most - 5'10.5". His footwear and posture can give that strong 5'11" impression at times though, for sure.
Dan said on 23/Nov/15
Brad Pitt's posture will always be impeccable because if know anything about him, you'll know the guy has an extremely strong core. His lower back and abdominal muscles are made of iron.

Joe said on 23/Nov/15
I find it very hard to believe there are only 2 inches between a barefoot Brad Pitt and a barefoot Barack Obama.
Dan said on 19/Nov/15
Heylo, that's what i believe. 5-10' or only a tiny unnoticeable amount under.
Heylo said on 19/Nov/15
Hijopotamus, You can't say that "I bet he have lifts inside" when we don't know. In those regular sneakers he may pull off a very small lift but it's really pointless to discuss that since we don't know. Better are the photos where we know that he have lifts.
I don't think you have to be delusional believing Brad to be 5'11, he could really be some mm off the 5'11 mark and closer to 5'10 but how does that make a 5'11 guess "delusional"? It's not the easiest thing to do, getting someone's height by the dot just by looking at photos. I believe like many says here, that he can be anywhere between 5'10 and 5'11, he doesn't look 5'9 like you might believe. Majority of photos with decent angles (very important to note since some weird camera angle can distort everything and give crazy illusions) counting in paltrow photos = 5'10-5'11.

The lowest I personally could go for him is slightly under 5'10 but that is really pushing it, perhaps way too low actually.

sebs said on 16/Nov/15
Pitt is clearly 5'11, literally every film hes in he always appears above average, with good posture and footwear he appears taller, stop trying to bring the man down to appear shorter than he is.
Aaron zamora said on 16/Nov/15
I have a question is 5'11 his peak height or the height that you believe that he is at this age? I also wanted to ask if your estimates of heights like Brad's 5'11 height for example, if it's his maximum height or the lowest height that he might be.
Editor Rob: for guys who are fit like Pitt, I think many will reach 50 without much of a loss that you would see (a small few mm maybe) so I'd think he was 5ft 11 or near it for last 20 years.

At 2:20 is the MONEY SHOT. Both Jimmy AND BRAD PITT are wearing flat shoes for once! I see a clear inch between them AND Brad has camera advantage. Care to explain that admin?
Editor Rob: from the clip I can't see enough to say there would be a full inch difference there.
Dan said on 15/Nov/15
In the Fallon break dancing video Pitt is wearing vans sneakers. Hardly a tricky shoe
hijopotamus said on 15/Nov/15
177guy, ridiculous or not is irrelevant. Face the fact and have a look at those pics with Paltrow.
Aaron Zamora, Brad is shorter than Fallon and Brad IS wearing lifts or tricky shoes AS USUAL, I mean a guy who wears boots on the beach is very strange unless he hides something ➖his real height!
Aaron zamora said on 14/Nov/15
There's a video on Jimmy Fallon's YouTube account with Brad Bitt and him dance battling. If you forward towards the end of the video they are back to back. Jimmy Fallon beats him by like half an inch to an inch. You should check that out Rob. I'm not saying that Brad Pitt is short I'm just saying that he might be 5'10 1/2-3/4 at this age now or Jimmy Fallon might have a shoe advantage.
Josh said on 14/Nov/15
Brad's barefeet photo is a very good evidence to show that he ain't any taller than 5'9. Also a friend of mine knew Brad in person and he said he's 5'9 with normal shoes on!
177cmGuy said on 14/Nov/15
I say 5'10 2/3 is an arguable range but 5'9 is ridiculous. With good posture, thick footwear and thick hair a strong 5'10 guy can easily look 6'0-6'1.
plus said on 13/Nov/15
No less than 181 cm, just look at the pic with Claudia Schiffer 5.11, even if he has 2.5 cm advantage in shoes and posture, he must be like 1 cm taller easily
Mr175 said on 12/Nov/15
180 is actually a very good shout. Theres no way he's going around day to day with lifts in his trainers, certainly not more than 0.5 because it would damage his posture. I reckon he does have short legs, maybe 30 inseam but a longish torso that makes up for it. Even when bulked he didn't look stocky ever...even with lifts you can observe someone's body dimensions and judge height pretty accurately. If Brad had slightly longer limbs he'd be a 6 foot 1 man and he knows it...that's his frustration I think, because otherwise 5 11 is a very decent height
ElDuderino said on 12/Nov/15
Pitt can look 6 feet, I'd guess 5'11.5
Ryan Fiveten said on 10/Nov/15
Yeah, 5'11" seems about right for Brad.
Dan said on 10/Nov/15
I saw Pitt in person at the TCL Chinese theater in Hollywood for the AFI premiere of By the Sea. He and Angelina walked into the theater and she presented the film, he was in a tuxedo and she was in a gown with heels. I have the video and photos taken on my phone. Whatever shoes they were both wearing, Pitt was only 1-1.5" taller than her. You can see the images from that night all over the Internet.
Sam said on 9/Nov/15
Would be interested to see if Pitt stands by Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale promoting their upcoming film together. Of course, Pitt is rather more likely to sport bigger footwear than the other two guys, Bale seems especially indifferent to standing or looking tall at events.
dmeyer said on 8/Nov/15
In bettween 179-181 for pitt , he coulnt look 5'11.5-6ft if he was less than 179 since he is not wearing the rdj style , and if he was 181+ he would have looked taller with the cubans and exelant posture
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Nov/15
5ft10 is too low
Allie said on 6/Nov/15
Brad being as short as 5'9? come on people..
Paleman said on 6/Nov/15
Anything under 5'10" is a joke, and even that seems unlikely low. He looks like he's standing AT LEAST 5'10.5" to 5'10.75".

In my opinion, a solid 5'11" is a good shout. I guess 5'11.25" could be possible as well, but still unlikely... Definitely not above that. I think the man looks as 5'11" as a 5'11" guy can look.
6'1 Joe said on 4/Nov/15
He's certainly more of 5'11" than 5'10". He can be anywhere between 5'10.5" and 5'11.25".
ManKo said on 2/Nov/15
I dont think lifting will make you shorter. There are many professional strongman such as Bill Kazmaier that lifted way heavier than all of us, ans that Arnold himself and he is still around his peak height, 188cm or 6´2. Porb steroids got more to do than lifting. Steroids can promote osteoporosis, which can cause heigh loss.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 31/Oct/15
He's probably either 178 - 179 cm I'd say. An outside chance he's only 177. But he's certainly not as short as 175 imo.
V said on 30/Oct/15
Haha 5'9 is a joke... Hippo please keep your nonsensical comments to yourself.
hijopotamus said on 29/Oct/15
He looks, he looks, he looks...all comments are irrelevant unless you see him barefoot. This guy is obviously shorter than we all think. Why would you wear customs-lifts-heels ALL THE TIME??
If Gwyneth is 5'9" this guy is 5'9"
Celebheights 6'1.75"/187 CM said on 26/Oct/15
He looks to be about 5'11" by Jim Carrey, who was 6'1 1/4"-6'1 1/2" in person.
dmeyer said on 23/Oct/15
With carrey looking at all pics he looks a solid 4cm smaller while he has near 2cm more shoes so 5'11 again
amaterasu said on 22/Oct/15
His footwear will make any 5'10" guy look 6'0" easily. I'm personally okay with 5'11" for him, but he's wearing custom made dress shoes with huge heels, and he doesn't even need to pack lifts inside to look close to 6'1" with those heels.
dmeyer said on 22/Oct/15
Click Here , no 6 foot men they are on same floor and pitt has 0.3in more shoes
dmeyer said on 22/Oct/15
Here same floor and pitt has slight more footwear like 0.3in he looks 5'11 as clooney is 5"10.5-10.75 and clooney has less shoes , in several pic when pitt and clooney have similar shoes and posture there is max 1cm between them
dmeyer said on 22/Oct/15
To me he looks 5'11.5-11.75 alot because of his 0.5in footwaer advantage and good posture near 6ft , when in mormal shoes he can look 5'10.5-11 and with thin shoes can look 179ish , all indicates a 5'11 guy
CharlyB said on 21/Oct/15
most of the time he looks like 6ft, i guess he wears lifts or heeled shoes, or maybe he is one of those guys who likes to say that he´s shorter than he actually is, just to make the other people feel shorter, what do you think Rob?
Justanotherguy said on 20/Oct/15
Brad Pitt is also closer to the camera which makes him look taller than the rest. There is no reason to believe Kevin Bacon is wearing lifts in his shoes and he doesn't have a reputation for wearing lifts. They look like ordinary oxfords to me (really shiny). If you assume no one is has any significant footwear advantage of any kind and consider that Pitt is standing closer to the camera, than in that picture he doesn't look anything over 5'10'5, Possibly even 5'10. But that's the lowest I think is reasonable for Brad Pitt.
Dan said on 20/Oct/15
In the group cast image with bomer bacon and clooney, Brad is wearing Vans Wool Alomar shoes in the grey wool color. They're discontinued now but you can see images of them if you google image. You can it a lift inside no bigger than 1.25". And they're very flat shoes. I actually own the same shoes lol. Google image Vans Wool Alomar.
Dan said on 20/Oct/15
Yolosan. The boots that Pitt more next to him carry are the same boots he wore on trl next to Bana. I'm pretty sure they are one of the few elevator shoes Pitt wears when he's on tv and needs to stand next to way taller people. Also, some people just like boots. It's more about style than comfort. I love boots.
Jed said on 20/Oct/15

Not sure what picture you're looking at mate. He's got a good couple of cm on Clooney and is wearing far flatter shoes. Plus look at the length of his trousers to the crotch line versus everyone else's in that row. He's not wearing lifts and is more than likely giving up at least 0.5" in footwear.

The bloke is almost certainly 5'10.5-5'11.5. Can't see anything outside of that range. 5'11 flat is probably spot on.
dmeyer said on 20/Oct/15
clooney is ddefenetly not more than a solid 179cm today as he looks barely as tall as pitt in 0.7in type while george has 1.3ish
Jed said on 20/Oct/15

Bacon is wearing dress shoes and has a noticeably high crotch line compared to Pitt and Bomer suggesting that if anyone's wearing lifts it's him. Regardless, his shoes would be giving him an advantage over BP yet looks up to an inch shorter. Pitt is practically wearing plimsolls and Clooney is wearing boots yet BP is still 0.5" taller.

Or to put it another way:

BP is taller than 3 guys who are listed from 5'10-5'11.25 wearing shoes which (alongside the length of the trouser legs) aren't magically giving him anything over than an inch at an absolute max (that's if he's thrown a pair of lifts in them). Meanwhile two out of the other 3 are wearing boots / dress shoes yet are still shorter than him by over 0.5".

If Pitt is under 5'10.5 then Bomer is under 5'11, Clooney is under 5'10 and Bacon is about 5'9.5.
hijopotamus said on 19/Oct/15
Jed, no, we cant see his footwear. What we see is a 5'10" George Clooney taller than Brad, thank you.
Justanotherguy said on 19/Oct/15
How does that picture destroy the sub 5'10.5 claims? Kevin Bacon is 5'10 and looks just barely shorter and Brad Pitt is closer to the camera. Kevin Bacon also looks the same height as Matt Bomer who claims 5'11.
Dmeyer said on 18/Oct/15
It is very possible brad has no lifts at all in those he Gets 0.6-0.7in , so similar to bomer who has flat 0.5-0.6in type and a good 0.5-0.6in under Clooney who has a 1.3in type , and yet looks easily as tall as both so has to be close to 6ft with those flats on the Guy is 5'11
Jed said on 17/Oct/15
I think this picture (and the one where it's head on) pretty much destroys any sub 5'10.5 claims:

Click Here

You can see the footwear, posture etc. Matt Bomer is closer to the camera and looks 0.5-1" smaller in the face on picture (although his posture isn't quite as good), and from the wide angle BP still looks a bit taller.

There could be a small lift in his shoes, but you can see he's not got over an inch in footwear over Bomer which pretty much pegs him as at least being close to 5'11.

Pitt looks 5'11 in nearly every picture he's in. Occasionally he 'grows' to over 6' but that's just obvious lift wearing on red carpet events which seems to be a common thing for superstar actors to do at those events.
Heylo said on 17/Oct/15
Dan & dmeyer, absolutely, I just wanted to add that he HAVE looked 6'2 in shoes, even though it hasn't been very often. I think we all know that Bana is absolutely several inches taller than Brad, I'm definitely not against it.

By the way, why do you dmeyer have to use the word "destroyed"? Like Bana is superior to Brad because of his height or something.. I'm sorry, I've heard that phrase before but I just think it's hilarious.
Dan said on 17/Oct/15
You see in the pic Dmeyer posted, Bana is like 3-3.5" taller than Pitt. On Trl there was only about an inch or less difference. Meaning some places Pitt wears elevator shoes and all other times he wears small
Inserts inside. About 1"-1.25". When he wears boots he gains two inches, putting him very close
To 6-0
Yolosan said on 16/Oct/15
I have seen the real footage of Brad Pitt talking to Jim Carrey back then on MTV. Pitt was wearing some light coloured high heeled cowboy boots, I am 99,99% sure about this. Not that I was focusing on his footwear at all, I just noticed it by accident. Carrey was stiil taller. I actually wondered why so many actors wore cowboy boots, since they didn't look that comfortable. Now I know the reason.

Guaranteed, he was wearing elevator shoes on the mtv trl appearance. Look at the premiere of the time travelers wife and all other Troy premieres. Bana edges him out by like 3" inches on the dot. On trl they were almost same height
Dan said on 15/Oct/15
Heylo, not including during the filming of Troy, Brad Pitt has always looked at least 3" shorter than Bana. Except for the mtv trl with Pitt and Bana and his appearance at the kids choice awards where he was photographed with Jim Carrey. At those two events, he wore boots that I can't recognize, and that he never wore in his personal life. Leading me to believe that yes, those may have been in fact, elevator shoes. Look at the trl appearance and all the other troy photo calls and premieres.

Parker, Judging on his very long pants and other photos from the same event, Brad seemed to have had some big boots that day and he could very likely have put in a small insert as well. I'm certainly no expert in this though but I've seen other photos from that event with Bana and Brad looks to have unusually big boots.
He had the same boots and long jeans when he met Jim Carrey too: Click Here and Click Here And looked a tad bit taller (IMO, hard to know exactly).

And Dan, I don't agree with you at all. He has looked 6'1 a few times outside of movies, the examples with Bana and Jim Carrey.. This doesn't rule out the strong 5'10 guess though. But it's quite hard hitting over almost(!) 6'2 at 5'10 and look normal, at least that's what I think...

In Fight Club for example he had a bit thicker shoes than his co star Edward Norton who wore normal black shoes (ca 1inch of height boost). Edward slouched throughout most of the film and looked very similar or a tad bit shorter than Brad Pitt. Nowadays, when Ed and Brad meet on certain events, Brad looks the same height as in Fight Club. In other words, Brad seems to be wandering around with a small boost in his shoes 24/7 to look like a "natural" 6footer.
Alucard said on 13/Oct/15
Parker the measurements on this site are the billed ones you can find everywhere else, except here it is based on debate and they can change... The ones with Rob and celebs pictures are usually more correct, but not always... As i said Cameron Diaz is no more than 5'6, and Pitt real height has always been around 5'9, agree to disagree...

Think he's the full 180. He tries to look 6 foot so wears lifts. All of you claiming he's 5'9 or barely 5'10 are pathetic
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 13/Oct/15
I've met Eric Bana in person, and he's lucky if he's over 6'2". He seriously could even be like 6'1 3/4" as it could have been a tie between us. I think that his frame and posture are what makes him appear taller.
Dan said on 12/Oct/15
Google image Brad Pitt Coke haan g series boots and you'll see the boots he wore from 2006 to 2008. The itself gives 1 and 1/8 inches. The whole should with insoles probably give maybe 1.25. Maybe. Now, you can fit an insert in them but depends on what size you use and Pitt has always used good fitting shows. He's never ever worn long clown shoes so I'm guessing he maybe wear his exact size or a half size bigger. That would be 9-9.5 or possibly a 10 in Cole haan sizes. In the Cole haan g series boot exactly his but size 10.5, you can only wear 1" insert. Anything bigger and you can't walk and the boots feel too tight

Sorry Parker but do you know for a fact that Cameron Diaz is a legit 5'8? She's not, try 5'6

No, I'm just going off what's listed here for Diaz and Bana. Maybe you should ask Rob to overhaul the whole site to get Pitt in at 5'9?

He's definitely 5-9.75 - 5-10. No taller, no shorter. When he wears his boots ( not custom boots, designer boots) he gets up to 5-11 or a bit over that. When he wears boots with inserts. He hits 6-0. Any other time he's been taller than that is in movies when he wears special shoes. He's not a tall guy but he's definitely not short at all. I think anyone above 5-9 should be considered above average. Anyone above 5-10 should be considered tall. Anyone above 6-0 is considered very tall. And anyone above 6-5 is no longer Hollywood height. That's getting into athlete height. Trust me, Pitt had special shoes made for him in Troy to not look to short next to Eric Bana. He was in a skirt with his legs very visible and he never looked extremely weird or awkward. The guy even ran around and jumped in the custom shoes. I say no one can say Pitt is under 5-10. Like I said 5-9.75 is the lowest.
Yolosan said on 11/Oct/15

That pic with Bana is just exposing Pitt again for wearing lifts. How come Bana TOWERS over Brad in other pics, yet looks the same height here? Bana has not been known for wearing any kind of lifts, so the obvious answer is: Brad changes in height so much because of his footwear.
N said on 11/Oct/15
I'd guess a one inch heel with about 3/8's insole plus an inch and a half lift for most of his preferred footwear. So that's almost 3 inches which means his foot doesn't look uncomfortably stooped upwards like Downey Jrs. So at around 5'10.5" barefoot at the most, 6'1 isn't out of the question as a reachable lift. If he lifts his forefoot too (maybe by 3/8's) it'll make his foot posture look even more natural. Thoughts rob?
Alucard said on 11/Oct/15
Sorry Parker but do you know for a fact that Cameron Diaz is a legit 5'8? She's not, try 5'6... Pitt is around 5'9, cm more cm less, always has been... And Eric Bana being close to 6'3 is another fantasy...
Pierre said on 11/Oct/15
Comparison Eric bana with Brad:Eric Bana is listed 6'2.25 but he's not 6"2.25 IMO=when he's next to Karl Urban in some pictures he's a little taller than Karl=+2cms IMO.Karl is the good proof IMO because he's in a picture next to 5"8' Rob=we can see that Rob in this picture has the more bad posture.Rob say he has about a quarter inch shoes than Karl's shoes,then....Eye of Rob is just under the mouth of Karl=so eye to eye=8 cm~ IMO.The difference is a little forehead and not a 1/2 head IMO(1/2 head is~ 11/12 cms IMO).IMO Karl is 181 cm,so Eric Bana is a 183 cms guy IMO.And a 183 cms guy in classics shoes(1 inche)= 185.5 cms IMO.Brad look -1 inche in some pictures next to Eric and in some pictures Brad next to Eric = 2 inches difference IMO.
MarcusTheSwede said on 10/Oct/15
Parker: Are you high? Brad Pitt is at best 176-178 st best without his heels or insoles. At best. He is just a nudge at best over Matt Damon. Movie industri need Brad to be 180cm height but in reality he is not. Every single person that see him irl testify that. And he is also known to wear extra special made boots and shoes in movies and Wears heavy bike boots and special heel build up shoes on events. And insoles in his shoes. Im a huge fan of Brad but I tell you all this right Know his 180cm claim is false and this listing is not correct. A friend who are over in LA couple of years promoting Swedish actors seen Brad several times and he tell me also Brad isnt taller Then his brother that is 178 and no more when he Wears his converse and that in mind Brad had dress shoes snd bike boots so no BP is not 180cm you all need to see reality for what it is not what Hollywood wants the actors to be big diffrence sometimes. Thanks
Parker said on 9/Oct/15
@Heylo. I disagree. Eric Bana is listed at 6'2.25 on this site so will stand at 6'3 in almost any type of footwear. I don't think Pitt looks 'nearly' 6'1 in his shoes next to him in this pic. I think he looks 'nearly' 6'2! What do you think?

At least 6'1?!? Oh my, fantasyland... Paltrow is not over 5'8 at best, and that's still tall for a woman, same for Schiffer who in reality is around 5'10... Brad Pitt real height has always been around 5'9 without the notorious crazy lifts he usually uses... Claims about him being close or over 180cm are complete fantasies...

This dude walks on big lifts, that for sure, 4 cm+, also always wear thick shoes.
Heylo said on 1/Oct/15
Paul, he's most definitely not an inch over 5'11 barefoot. He was supposed to look taller than usual in Moneyball because the coach in real life was quite tall. He has looked between 6 and a weak 6'1 many times next to 5'11 people in shoes but he surely has some inserts in his boots because next to Paltrow barefoot in the 90s (Paltrow is 5'9) he didn't look over 5'11, he even looked closer to 5'10.
Paul said on 1/Oct/15
Brad is NOT 5'11. He is at least 6'1. I know this for a fact because I worked with him on set of Moneyball movie and stood next to him. I'm 5'11 and he was at least 2 inches taller than me. Where do they get this bogus info?
[Editor Rob: he wrote 5ft 11 for his height in a fact file for a magazine before he hit it big.]

hijopotamus said on 26/Sep/15
Tk, do you really know what "a couple of inches" are? Pitt and Paltrow same height to me.
Yolosan said on 24/Sep/15
@tk, Heylo

I don't see him being 2inch taller than Clooney in the first pick since he is closer to the camera. And he is not wearing totaly flat shoes at all, just look at his right foot, it tends to fall a bit sideways. In the 2nd pic he is towering over Clooney, just like he did over Beckham, that's freaking ridiculuous.

However Clooney is doubtfully a 5´11 guy himself, but more of a 5´10 guy, maybe somewhere between 1.76-1.78m. He barely looks taller than Damon here, who is certainly not a 5´10 guy. There are also pics of Clooney looking taller than Pitt at times. I didn't say Pitt is 5´9 but I honestly doubt he is 5´11 flat. This guy changes in height so much that he makes Stallone and Cruise look pretty confident about their heights. lol
Vlad said on 23/Sep/15
@ShortRussianDude how can you walk?i have trouble walking with 2cm insoles,lol teach me master
ShortRussianDude said on 22/Sep/15
@pizzman so i am not the only guy who does this !? haha same i use insoles with Timberland boots i go from around 168 to 177 and i can walk normal my shoe also looks normal and no one has commented on my walking style in the 5 years or so i have been doing it.

so that is why it is hard to tell height people seem to think wearing lifts or insoles is difficult believe me it is not.

Yolosan said on 19/Sep/15
You just don't go naturally from this Click Here (Pitt is in shoes and barely taller than Clooney who is barefoot) to that Click Here Pitt is clearly not 5'11.

Although it is obvious that Pitt sometimes uses lifts or high heeled shoes I really can't understand what you are saying. In both photos, he looks 2 inches taller than Clooney. Actually, in the first photo - where he's wearing flats and Clooney is in socks - he looks taller than in the second one. Don't get fooled by camera angles. Even in the famous photos with Gwyneth Paltrow by the pool, he seems a couple of inches taller.

Imo, if Pitt isn't the full 5'11'', he must be around 5'10.5'' and with his impeccable posture and footwear usually looks 6'0'' or 6'1/2''.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Sep/15
5ft10 is too low.
Heylo said on 21/Sep/15
Yolosan, So approximately 1.5-2 inches for you is "barely taller"?
He would probably be around the same height as Clooney if he took of those "things" he have on his feet, take or give 1cm. Brad's problem seems to be that he seem to have the desire to look taller than 5'11, he might dip just under it in the evening but maybe he wants to look 6ft consistently and therefor he has to look taller than his 5'10-5'11 buddies on photos... To me, if that's true, it's absurd cause why the hell would he feel ashamed of being 5'10-5'11!??!? If Clooney really is 5'11 then Brad is around the same height (with "around" I mean within a 2cm radius).

But I refuse to believe that Pitt is 5'9. After looking at all the barefoot photos with Paltrow + shoe photos (everything from flat to big boots) since his breakthrough in the early 90s I can't see him lower than 177-178cm, I just can't.
Celebheights 6'1.75"/187 CM said on 20/Sep/15
5'10" is higher average (considering that 5'9.5" is the average). He's more 5'11" than 5'10" though.

He looks taller than any of 5,10 guys. Possibly in range 5.10 - 5.11, cuban shoes made him lift up to 6,3 .

Dan, 2.5 inches is A LOT! Dude...
Pizzaman said on 15/Sep/15
@Dan, still with 2.5" max assistance he could go from 5'10" to 6'05" in total. My boots went much higher. I think his boots on the left and middle picture give more than the right one, they are more heeled, maybe 3" max for those?

Pizza man, you're insane. The boots Pitt is wearing in the right corner next Claudia are guidi front zip boots from 2009. They have a very small spoke. At most they give 1". I've owned them before. You cannot fit anything inside them bigger than 1.25". Anything bigger and the boot won't zip up. The assistance Pitt can get from those boots is 2" to 2.5" max
hijopotamus said on 14/Sep/15
Ednerd, in that Friends show he looked so small frame compared to the other guys who are skinny but taller. Except for the fat guy that wears lifts too!
The key issue is Paltrows height. If she is 5'10" then Pitt can be 5'10" and we all shut up.
Rob, what do you think?
5ft10guy said on 12/Sep/15
Where is a pic with Brad in sandals or barefoot their are none meaning he's height conscious . Anyways he's not short but not tall.Claudia wasn't standing straight and had flat footed shoes.I also saw the pic of him with Gwyneth Paltrow and they looked the same height. I would say 5ft10 for him .I also saw the movie 12 years a slave with Chiwetel Ejiofor, and he was barely taller .Brad had like these boots and Chiwetel Ejiofor,I don't recall but Chiwetel is only 5ft9 he isn't 5ft10 he looked too short . Chiwetel was barefoot throughout most the movie and Brad was in boots.He's only 5ft10 maybe 5ft9.75 imo . My grandfather also met the guy so I'm going to ask him if he would describe him as tall .My grandpa considers me tall at 5ft10 and my grandpa is 5ft7
Heylo said on 11/Sep/15
Come on, 5'9 is too low. If someone want to downgrade him at all, 5'10 or 5'9.75 should be the lowest.
I agree about the long pants he uses. He has somewhat shortish legs for his height (nothing wrong with that) which could make his use of inserts slightly easier since his body gets more proportional.
ednerd said on 11/Sep/15
always thought he was a good 5'11". I saw an old episode of friends the other day that he was on and it was like they didn't want him standing right next to David or Mathew like most scenes where everybody is standing next to each other. He was either off to the side or sitting. The scene where he was off to the side had a kind of odd feel to it. I'm starting to think it was intentional and he's more in the 5'10" range and didn't want to be seen as shorter than David or Mathew.
Omid said on 10/Sep/15
Rob, sometimes I feel Brad looks ridiculously tall, It makes you wonder what is he doing to look that tall even when standing relaxed

What are the chances that he frequently uses 1 inch lifts? I wouldn't go as low as 5'10 but 5'10.5 could be plausable (taking a small lift into account) right?
[Editor Rob: I think in many cases it is hard to tell unless you have a shot of the shoe side on to see if there is any bulge at lace area. This for most of us is hard to tell.

There is the Secret society of celebrity lifts, those who wear half inchers and nobody knows...]
Dan said on 9/Sep/15
All the jeans I've known Brad Pitt to wear all come in standard 34" length. They don't come in 32. Simon miller, rag and bone, Rick Owens, neither get as short as 32 and Pitt doesn't wear custom shoes. I've been saying that for years.
Pizzaman said on 8/Sep/15

I have some Timberland like boots with a near 1.75" sole and i used over 3" soles inside, which brought me over 4" higher. I could still walk well enough on campus and no one noticed or even commented my walking, but this was definitely the highest I ever got. I even managed to look taller by half an inch than a friend who is barefoot 5" taller than me on a rather straight photo. Definitely only possible in a big Timberland like boot. Pitt's boots on the top right pic maybe give him 1.25" heel and 2.5" more insoles absolute MAX I'd say. Still he could look 3.5" taller than barefoot if he really wanted.
katherine said on 8/Sep/15
Dan- thats a great recent pic. He's no more than 5'9 I've always maintained this height for brad and must say, that's not a 5'11 guy in the pic you posted. Legs are ridiculously short. Look at how the pant leg bunches. and that's probably a 32 inch inseam.
dmeyer said on 8/Sep/15
Its not true i have all kinds of lifts and even a small one 0.5in that realy give closer to 0.3in are not easy to wear in low cut shoes in a high cut you could wear 1in that will give tops 0.65-7in , in sneakers or hiking boots its much easier than in a classy well shaped dress boot , so even if brad has a 1in lifts evry times he looks 5'11.5 he would have to be 5'10.75 to pull that off
Allen said on 8/Sep/15
5'9 tops anything above is ridiculous
Heylo said on 7/Sep/15
hijopotamus, 177-178cm is my guess for his height yeah. I could never say an exact number, it's too hard.

RobV: You say that 4 inches is easy to put in with the right boots? Show some photos of those boots ? I could buy the 2inch lifts with relative ease but not more, not at the moment at least. There are guys in Hollywood with a tasty bank account who gets over 3 inches like Robert Downey Jr and let me tell you, it is visible!
Chase Witherspoon said on 7/Sep/15
Hmm.. the photo with Ms Schiffer above suggests to me he's a wee shorter than this listing... 178 seems more likely factoring an actor's heel....
Sam said on 6/Sep/15
178cm/179cm isn't far fetched, but I doubt he's under 5ft10.
Mat 5'10 said on 6/Sep/15
Rob, could someone argue 178 cm for Pitt?
[Editor Rob: I think with any listing, people can argue above/below it if they wish. I might struggle myself to try to argue Pitt was only 5ft may rely on assuming he is wearing small lifts a lot of the time to make the argument hold up.]
Justanotherguy said on 6/Sep/15
Brad Pitt is too smart to just use inserts in his shoes. He probably has custom shoes made or buys the best height increasing shoes. I don't believe he wears lifts as often has people here think, but he does sometimes wear boots which have slightly larger heels. But to look routinely 5'11-6'1 in pictures and the movies without a obvious footwear advantage he has to be at least average height. I think any claim under 5'10 is simply unrealistic for him, but he might not be at a full 5'11 either.

I doubt that he wears shoes that give him anything more than 2 inches to his height. Anything after that is pushing it. You have to understand that wearing 3 inches is awkward to walk in, and often obvious to anyone who is paying attention to your footwear.

The bottom line is that he claims 5'11 and rarely looks below it. Weather he really is 5'11 or isn't doesn't matter. I think its a modest claim regardless and it shows just how clever he is not to draw attention to himself. But yet, here we are...
RobV said on 5/Sep/15
@ averagejoe You suggest that lifts/elevators must look ridiculous, commenting inaccurately at one point that it's not possible to gain more than 1cm (less than half an inch) but your comment makes clear you have never worn them and know nothing about them other than prejudice. I appreciate you are trying to prove some point that Pitt 'cannot' be wearing lifts, but you are simply using inaccurate comments to back up the point you are determined to prove.

You suggest that it is not possible for me to get away with what I do in adding height and that people must know, but in my business trust me, anyone who even vaguely suspected me would tell someone who would tell someone else - and it would get back to me bigtime. There is no politeness in the London and European clubworld. Someone would ram right in and bust your cover without a thought, specially someone else tall who was put out by you being taller.

There is one very simple reality about elevators and lifts - up to 2" in the right boots (one inch in any shoes) you can get away with lifts with no discomfort and little chance of being discovered. At any height. In elevators, it is 3" or 4" easily with the right boots, and the 5" are really more the kinda workboot things like Docs that you wear with the right things. However it depends also on your current height - it's a simple fact that the taller you are (I'm 6'2.5") the more you can get away with.

The assumptions about being 'half a head' shorter when you take your boots off after a successful night meeting a partner are in fact not the real story when you are very tall already like myself, and because women wear heels that take them up and down the perspective on height is not so strong or developed. All people add height with all shoes, even the flattest. I accept that adding 5" to your height at, say, 5'7", might be difficult to pull off all the time and would not advise it! But anyone can add a 2-3 inches with ease.

And famous people have the cash and the access to ensure that they can do it with ease as well. Just because people are fans of Pitt doesn't mean that they have to tortuously argue that he can't be wearing 2"-3" of elevation because of some perception that "elevators don't work above 1cm"(the equivalent of what you get from a pair of flipflops). Your point about it being difficult if you are 'running for buses' really begs the answer that I have never done that and never will, even if I were barefoot. The vast majority of people who use buses are not in a position to 'run' for them - age, health, inclination, carrying stuff, heels. It's not some existential crisis caused by footwear you must avoid if you have to wait for the next bus or get there on time.
hijopotamus said on 5/Sep/15
Heylo, so 177 for Pitt? That's fair enough for me.
A guy that sometimes is shorter than Clooney and barely taller (Pitt wearing shoes and Clooney barefoot) is very suspicious. Lots of weird cases?
Pitt was shorter on cowboy boots than Geena Davis on flats. Pitt on heels a tad bit taller than Robert Redford. A Brad Pitt shorter than a mature sloucjer 5'11" Harrison Ford. A Brad not way taller than Jen Aniston...
Dude, so many...
Saying Brad is under 5'10" is not that crazy.
MarcusTheSwede said on 5/Sep/15
Kind of agree with Both Allen and Heylo Brad is somewhere in between probably around 177cm without lifts heels etc , picture with Gwyneth is really good doesnt matter If he slouches a little even If he stood more straight wouldnt have Done much Thanks
Heylo said on 4/Sep/15
And I never said that I only saw a 3cm difference with Bana. But implying such things must give you some sort of relief I guess?
Heylo said on 4/Sep/15
hijopotamus, I could say the same about you, that you are an hater of Brad Pitt but I will not call you that cause that would be a strange way of trying to make me feel better about myself and my opinions... ? I can't see why I would feel better about Brad being taller than Paltrow, do you really think I care that much. This discussion is just a hobby thing when I'm surfing around on the net. If I thought Brad was 5'7, then I would say it.

I guess you can't handle the fact that we simply don't agree with what we see in the photos.

Pitt's head is tilted more than Paltrow's, that's how I see it. I don't know if it's the masculine body that makes it look taller, I just say what I see with my eyes. I see a taller Brad and that's that.
I don't agree about Paltrow and her posture. I don't think that Brad has a big advantage if any, perhaps a bit of an camera angle advantage but it's hard to estimate exactly.
But as I said, I can't see them at the same height. Add the usual shoe photos with Paltrow when Paltrow have small heels... Brad is not under 177cm.
e said on 4/Sep/15
Why didnt he appear in a beach or pool scene??there arent many pics in such scenerie

Plus perspective gives a little edge to Pitt. So maybe he looks just a shade taller than her..
5'10 max for Pitt.
184.3cm (Night) said on 3/Sep/15

Yeah he is taller, i mean the top of his head (The back) isnt even in the frame of the photo cause of him tilting his head. I can see 1.5 inches if he was to look straight ahead. Always possible its even 2 inches. So the under 179cm crowd need to stop, he is easily 3-4cm taller than a 175cm woman barefoot.
Allen said on 2/Sep/15
And also she is not standing erectly but Brad is!!
Allen said on 2/Sep/15
Heylo, Thank you for adding the photo here
Considering the fact that you are insisting on Brad's head being tilted or bowed or anything like that Platrow is tilting her head as well. The only thing that makes you think that Brad is taller is because he has a masculine body and his shoulders are bigger. And if he really is taller he is so not noticeably taller!! Paltrow is so skinny and is also slouching if you notice! So the only reason that makes you think he is taller is that he has a masculine body while she is slouching and also tilting her head same as brad as you mentioned.
hijopotamus said on 2/Sep/15
Heylo, same height. Dude, it's so funny you Brad fans are so finicky for raising his height and then when he stands beside Eric Bana you only see 3 cm difference.
The guy is 5'10" after his best pilates session when he was in his 20s. Get over it!
Now under 5'9"...but 6' in public. Guess how?
Heylo said on 1/Sep/15
Allen, I know what picture you mean. I google searched it right now just in case I was wrong but the photo was just as I remember it. Pitt doesn't look exactly the same height. He actually does tilt his head slightly while smiling. You can see that Brad is taller than Gwyneth, that's for sure. And because it's noticeable, it has to be minimum 2cm taller. To me, he looks at least 5'10.

Here is the photo: Click Here

This is so weird, we're all looking at the same photos but by reading the comments in here it doesn't look like we do.
If Brad looked the same height as Gwyneth, then I would happily say so cause I wouldn't like Brad less if he happened to be shorter than we thought.

Look at that photo and imagine Brad lifting his head up, how much taller do you think he would look? He would definitely look noticeably taller, that's for sure. If you guys can't see that... then I don't know what to say..
Allen said on 31/Aug/15
There's also another picture of him and Paltrow barefeet and Pitt's head is straight as an arrow. Still they are the same height. Why? Because he is Brad Pitt he cannot be under 5'10? Bad news friend, he truly is under 5'10 and possibly 5'9. The stature of the guy is petite. He as well has a long torso but it's still pretty obvious that he is somthing between 5'7 - 5'9.
hijopotamus said on 31/Aug/15
Heylo, he does have an advantage! In any case same height roughly grosso modo as EVERYONE is doing. So is she really 5'9??? Some people seriously doubt it
Brendan said on 30/Aug/15
In one of Mr & mrs smith scenes, Vaughn recieved a message that Brad is wanted. Height mentioned: 6ft 1 in!
What is your idea Rob?
Don't you think it was the famous joke from Clooney?
May be Liman is joking too!
My real question: is it possible?
You always have best aanswers Rob.

Here is Brad in front of writer Aaron Sorkin who is listed as 6-1.5. Now Brad is wearing shoes that give about .75" of lift. They are called merrell spirit moc shoes. In aurora color. Now, I've owned those shoes so I know you can put a 1" lift inside. You can't put more because you won't be able to put the shoe on. They are very low cut moccasins.
AverageJoe said on 29/Aug/15
@RobV - You've been walking around with 5" elevator shoes and 3" lifts for 15 years and you think nobody has noticed? With respect I can assure you they have! They were probably just too polite to say anything.

It's true I haven't worn lifts, but normal people can easily spot somebody who's in elevator shoes standing on there tippy toes.

If you really want to prove me wrong, I'd love to see an example of a man wearing 5 inch elevators or 3 inch lifts where it looks totally natural.

You can't just convert a (for instance) 5'7 man into a 6ft man and expect people not to notice that his entire body doesn't fit those proportions. Your wingspan isn't increasing... most 6ft guys have over a 6ft wingspan as well.

And even so... how can you expect to walk around/live with such a huge lift, what if you need to run for a bus? what if you bring home some girl and take off half a head of height? you think she doesn't notice?

Man I'd love a world where I can walk around at 6'4 in my 5 inch lifts where nobody will notice. But I'm sure the reality is that I would look completely ridiculous.

@ TrueMinder. You say "Who cares?" what Pitt's height is. Well obviously you do or you wouldn't spend any time posting about it and quoting a figure which you cannot "know" unless you have measured him yourself personally in the nude (him, I mean, not you necessarily).

No, he doesn't have any advantage what so ever. Look at that photo again and get objective for once.

Have you ever been around pools? The flatter surface just in front of Brad (between Brad and Gwyneth) is for the water to rinse away (i don't know how to express myself correctly in english, I'm sorry) , it's a very small surface and none of them are standing on it. Brad are TILTING his head to kiss her.
If he stood straight he would most likely look 2-3cm taller

Look at his shoulders, they are above Paltrow's shoulders. In general, girls have longer necks than boys but Brad has a pretty long neck for a guy (isn't very unusual actually but it is more desired in females I would say) and would OBVIOUSLY be taller than Gwyneth if they stood straight.

You have to analyse the photo more than just taking a quick glance.
I've seen Brad in lifts but mostly on movie sets and big premieres. He hides it well with longer pants but I would never think that he could get more than 5cm in reality without walking very weirdly.

But if you hijopotamus have some great arguments for why he could fit enormous lifts and still walk relatively normal, then I would love to hear/see them. I keep an open mind on this topic even though I lean towards Brad being around 3cm taller than Paltrow.

I love how everyone talks about lifts... 'He must have a 1-3 inch lift in the dress shoe, no problem.'

Have you guys actually tried putting a 1 inch lift in a dress shoe? even a 1 cm lift is pushing it. People would notice something is off, you don't just stand differently, you walk differently too. The whole center of rotation is messed up.


No, you could definitely pull off an inch lift. But I agree a 3 inch internal lift is only going to be possible in a super roomy, tall boot.
RobV said on 27/Aug/15
@ Average Joe With respect, I am not sure if you have had loads of experience of wearing lifts, but I have done it for 15 years (lifts and elevators - or both!) and have to tell you that you are doing it wrong if you put only 1cm in and people have noticed (and you felt you were standing/walking differently).

You do not just shove a vast amount of lift in any old pair of shoes and hope for the best. I for example wear 5" elevators at times, and various shoes and boots with up to 3" of lifts. It is true that at certain levels the boots have to be higher (and trainers hi top) to get that amount of lift but much also depends upon the construction of the shoes.

If someone like Pitt is doing it, then I can promise you that the shoes he is using will be specially made/altered/bought in a slightly larger size etc. Or elevators which take you into a whole new ballgame of walking etc.

In general, if you buy dress shoes without elevators that fit quite snug, you really can only get an inch in I agree (but you can and pretty undetectably), but the minute you start using the tricks of the trade in regard to sizing and uppers and room (and can we assume that most stars are not too poor to spend $200 on a pair of shoes? Or that they haven't thought of these tricks?), then you can get 2" easily. 3" with lifts is really not poss in dress shoes, but of course here again it really depends upon styling and fit and sizing. And of course it IS poss with elevators.

If you have the cash, you can have styles copied with subtle differences in fit to enable a couple of inches+ to be added in height. That is a lot of extra height even though it doesn't sound it.

And there are videos by both GuidoMaggi and Dons showing you how you can walk very naturally - and I can attest to the fact that I walk perfectly normally now (but also that it was hit and miss at first with lifts and it took me a while to get it right at the outset 15 years ago).
hijopotamus said on 26/Aug/15
AverageJoe, ask a shoe lift elevator shoes company about their sales. Or ask Pitt if you meet him. It seems you have not seen his best lifts pics!
Btw, watch the pic of Pitt kissing Paltrow. Watch their feet. YES!!! Pitt has ground advantage!!! Guys...explain that!
Now, to makes things "worse", some people claim Paltrow under 5'9".
Rob, big issue you have with this post!
TrueMinder said on 26/Aug/15
I know B. Pitt is 5'11 - 5'11.5! But who cares!?
Heylo said on 26/Aug/15
hijopotamus, I have never said that 178 is 5'11? But my constant differing view on this probably makes you think that I am mixing all the numbers up. I'm not stupid though.

Well, then Brad is the smartest liftwearer in all of Hollywood, of all times. I wouldn't be super surprised either if he ended up being 178cm. I still don't agree with that he looks the same height as Paltrow cause he is tilting his head. My opinion on this photo was that he looked 177-178cm but yes, I have been changing my opinion later when I have seen photos with shoes on. Which might be pretty stupid considering (just like you say) that any photo with shoes is irrelevant.

But honestly, he doesn't look the same height as Paltrow. I don't know if you think so but someone here just said that in the comments below. I clearly believe that he's about an inch taller than Paltrow. I can't speak anything about Paltrow and her height but I usually trust the listings of Rob.

It just feels weird, that thought of Brad Pitt being under 5'10 don't you think? I mean, in reality he could be but it feels weird considering his slightly tall stature on photos next to 5'10-5'11-6ft guys.
AverageJoe said on 25/Aug/15

@Rob - This might make a decent video, some demonstration of actually walking along in lifts vs elevators vs normal shoes. I'm sure it would clear up any misconceptions people have about what is or isn't possible to get away with.
Blink said on 24/Aug/15
Rob, out of curiosity, what would you have guessed if you didn't know Brad himself claimed 5'11?
[Editor Rob: not under 5ft 11, but the more you see of him over the years I think somewhere around 5ft 11 adds up, and with a boot/bigger heel and good posture, can sometimes pull off 5ft 11.5]
hijopotamus said on 22/Aug/15
Heylo, this is about numbers, about cm (not mm). So 178 is not 180 and 180 is not 5'11"
Simple as that. So Brad is not 5'11" and that's something most of us agree. I'm 182 and I never say I'm 6'
I could use Pitt shoes and be 6'2" and people would say I was 6'1" without shoes? Come on...!
I had a 176 gf and I always looked taller in every pic from every single angle in pool parties both barefoot.
Brad is 5'10 MAX if Gywneth was really 5'9" (?) and the rest of pics are IRRELEVANT as he is wearing lifts-elevators 24/7.

It's very pothetic how Pitt has made all these sane people wonder and fooled. The only thing that I can trust is barefoot Brad next to Paltrow. Google had listed her as 5'8 before and now 5'9. Pitt Looks same exact height not even one cm taller! So now that puts him around 5'8 or 5'9 tops! Some even have seen Paltrow in person and they say that she's 5'7. 5'7 Brad ought not shock us! look at his short hands and short legs! Even if you watch his earlier movies he has the stature of a very small person. So he's 5'7-5'9! End of story!

hijopotamus, No, what I mean is that in the end, everyone here that is listed at a certain height could be 1-2cm away from that number in reality. So why does it really matter if Brad Pitt is listed as 180cm or 178cm when there's really no sure way to know unless we found some really exclusive photos.

I don't agree with the "same height as Gwyneth" argument. That doesn't mean that you are wrong, it simply means that we don't agree with what we both see through looking at those photos and that's okay. Even though I've changed my mind a few times I do believe that he could be anywhere between 179-181. If you believe that he's 5'9, then that's what you think.

I am mixing my comments with both Inches and cm which could be confusing to some people cause just like some have been saying, 5'10 isn't exactly 178cm at the dot but I have been assuming this whole time that people would understand me lol.

With bernthal thaugh he has high cut shoes , he look 5'10.5-11.5 with tarantino in some shots looks looks 5'10 but in many 5'11 and 5'11.5 as well even wheb in low cut decent heeled 1.3in shoes , with bana and bloom looks in between 5'11-11.75 while his. Shoes are normal , with clooney alwais looks strong 5'11 even considering footwear with damon can look 5'10.5 -11 and more , with claudia , when in good angle and similar posture he looks 0.5-0.75in taller. Considering footwear he has to be near 5'11 , as well with norton looks 5'11-11.75 depending. On shoes , even with paltrow he looks 5'9-10 because if distance and angle it will make people 2in apart look similar ,

There is no way that Brad Pitt dwarfed David Beckham. If this were the case, then Brad Pitt would have to be at least 6'8"-6'9" (which we all know isn't even close to his real height). 6'3" alone would put Tom Cruise at 6 feet, and Jim Carrey passed 6'5", which is bizarre. David Beckham isn't even standing up straight in the photo.
hijopotamus said on 19/Aug/15
Heylo, 178'5 cm is not 180 cm!
So according to you 178,5 cm can be a good listing for someone that is 176 cm?
So a guy that stands 176 cm can claim 180 too??
Dude, 180 is NOT even 5'11"!
Brad is 5'10" max. We have seen him shorter than Clooney and 3 inches shorter than sloucher Tarantino. We have seen him same height as Gwyneth Paltrow. He even wrote down 5'10" somewhere. But he HAS to be 5'11" lol
I remember when on this site Pitt was 183...
Matthew190 said on 19/Aug/15
I could buy, at most, 5'10.5" barefooted for Brad. I really doubt he's anything more than that. But I could picture him being about that height, or a little bit less.
Heylo said on 17/Aug/15
No, 0.5 inches and better posture wouldn't make him look THAT much taller. But like some say, we don't know how the ground looks. But that particular photo isn't very much to anyone's advantage either but yeah, we better wait for some better photos in the future. We have to remember that he was nearly identical in height to Jon Bernthal who's 5'11 at one "Fury" event.

If Beckham stood taller than Brad, then people wouldn't assume that the ground wasn't straight out flat. In other words, I think some people want him to be under 5'11? Most photos confirms the 180cm listing. The barefoot photos aren't good enough even though I have to admit that he looks closer to 5'10 in the barefoott photos but it's hard to estimate at those angles.
If he really was 178.5-179cm, then 180cm is good enough as a listing. It's impossible to get the exact height.
Jesse Stone said on 17/Aug/15
To the Eastwood photos: Eastwood has shrunk heavily (just visite his CelebHeights Page), while Freeman hasn't lost much of his 6'2. So back then Eastwood was taller than Freeman, now it's just the opposite.
dmeyer said on 16/Aug/15
If brad has 0.5in more shoes plus better posture plus floor davantage , if there was a full séries of pics they would have looked close ,both brad and beck have looked about 5'11 enaugh times
hijopotamus said on 16/Aug/15
Cool Cat, you are so right. Brad should be upgraded to 6'3" (with shoes on plus huge lifts) and then downgraded to a close to 5'10" when we check those pics naked with Gwyneth Paltrow. I don't know why but I think I trust someones height barefoot than with shoes and especially if those shoes are very very tricky. Maybe I'm wrong...
Guys, be serious!
I wonder what the feeling must be when you know soneone is shorter than you but appears way taller using tricky shoes. And also when you know you are shorter than someone you know but appear taller than him! One case could be a "LOL" and the second case hhmmm I don't know...I would feel stupid.
RobV said on 16/Aug/15
...and to others who say they are 'shocked' by how photos show these differences, well now you know never to judge what you are presented by media as what actually IS in reality. You are not supposed to know the truth much of the time, specially if it is a sensitive subject as height is for some well known people (not all of course, but more than ever before it appears).

At this point, Brad's height is even more confusing than Cruze control. Would the height gurus here PLEASE help me figure out how Brad can look 3 inches taller than Beckham on one pic and barely taller than Sean Penn on other pics.
Color me beyond confused on this one. Was the Beckam pic photoshoped??? Was Brad standing on a chair???
There's gotta be a logical explanation. Quantum physicist, is there a quantum physicist in the house?!?

C'mon guys, the Beckham pic seals the deal. Brad dwarfs the Beck. Sorry for the haters. Either Beckham needs a downgrade to 5'8" or Brad needs an upgrade to at least 6'3"

Not under 5' 11". There's no way a 5' 9" or 5' 10" guy could make a legit 5' 11" guy like David Beckham only look 5' 9". 5' 11" plus thicker footwear and better posture made Pitt look close to 6' 1" with Beckham.
Truth said on 15/Aug/15
MJBeck, If you really think Sean Penn is 5'9", then I can see how you place Brad at 175cm but here's the thing, Penn is not 5'9". Based on the pics you posted, Brad can't be more than 5'9.5" which is what many posters have been saying for years.

Imagine if he wasn't lifted in that pic...he would look 6'2-6'2.5!!Crazy,isn't it??Now a legit 5'11 seems really possible for Pitt,and we can't confirm if Beckham is ''elevated'' or not at that event(which is not impossible,anyone can use lifts)...Maybe he really is an honest 5'11 guy,i don't know...
Heylo said on 13/Aug/15
I don't know what to say, he looks 6'1+ next to David Beckham in this photo

Considering the little more laidback posture of David, Brad still looks much taller for being "5'11". Not denying the possibility that Brad wear lifts but it's still a very big difference for being a 5'11 guy in lifts vs a 5'11 guy... you know. Hmm... this is actually strange.
Bob said on 13/Aug/15
That photo with Beckham... I am shocked for real. He towers over Beckham, there must be something weird about this..

Honestly, Brad Pitt looks like he's way over 6ft next to a legit 5'11 Beckham..
Couldn't he be 181.5cm + wearing lifts? He does look tall next to other guys around 5'11, not only Beckham. In this case, it's a little extreme, must be the angle or something..
Height183 said on 13/Aug/15
At worst I can see is 5'10.5'', Even with that I would be surprised. He looks a genuine 5'11'' guy. I agree with Rob on this one.

Brad looks about 179 with perfect posture and raised head next to Tarantino,who is probably a legit 185 guy(although that's only speculations,camera angles can make you look taller if you're above average height and Brad might be lifting again).I have a picture with an 174 friend,both of us with equal posture and i looked about 182 next to him,even though i measure 179 range and had similar footwear with him.So my point is:don't always trust pics or films to compare height,especially if we're talking about very low angles taken on purpose in favour of shorter actors.
But Brad does look 178-179 in that pic,he cant just be 175 while looking taller than 180 Beckham(who imo is more 179 these days),because some downgraders in here wish him to be.
MarcusTheSwede said on 11/Aug/15
RobV: Well youre wrong. Every single person seen him irl writing here peggs him at around 177 without his massive boots. And majority of people here during the years has proven over and over again he isnt taller Then Matt Damon recently and definately shorter Then George Clooney. Once in a while there comes people saying oh he looked so and so tall in movies well get things real movies are what the editors and production want it to be irl a whole other thing. BP 177-178 without lift snd or heels. A 180cm man does not look as short beside Jennifer Aniston or as short beside Gwyneth Paltrow and there are tons of more evidence but well I rest my case. Some people just dont want to see things for what they really are. Thanks and bye to you. Thanks

Anything under 178cm is ridiculous for pitt. There is no way that a 5ft 9 or under male could measure 6ft 1 or over in lifts.

178cm is the absolute lowest he could be with 180cm being the highest with a strong 179cm/flat 180cm being the most likely. There is always a chance that Pitt could measure a hair shy of 5ft 11
RobV said on 8/Aug/15
@ Marcus Your point about movies not meaning 'evidence' of anything about height is completely right. Movies are about the art of creating, to great effect and totally convincingly, something that is totally fake! Nothing wrong with that, it's all fantasy and make believe, but it is now so sophisticated (right down to managing stars' private lives/marriages etc to promote the films). That detailed sophistication in creating a fake image is easy to achieve with height - and it is now so advanced and so much effort goes into it that it is perhaps not surprising that people watching films just do not get it or understand - they want, in any case, to buy into the image.

In my business (running clubs), on the occasion we get well known people in, the one thing that almost everyone says is: "I never knew they were so SHORT", and they often cite some film where the guy towered over a relatively tall actress as if to say "are you sure this is really HIM here"!

But of course in film, the romantic hero/lead CANNOT under any circumstances be shorter than the girl. And must give the impression that he is several inches TALLER. So it has to be faked to create EXACTLY the right height.

I think the place where stars are at their weakest if you are looking to find out how tall they are is at red carpet events. There it's a bit more of a level playing field and where you often see evidence of lifts etc. When well known people are out and about, like in a club, they make great attempts never to be stood next to someone taller than them, and will not be photographed in many such situations. Photographers know not to disobey or next time they will not be told where to expect the star so they can get that 'exclusive'. It is such a detailed business now that if someone DOES get some candid shot a star doesn't like, agents lobby newspapers and make clear they will gain access again if they disobey. So much of the stuff you see and read in that sense is manufactured and approved by all parties, even if it is apparently critical. So you can't believe any of it.

I know that camera angles can make a difference Marcus but what about this pic then Click Here 5'9" Sean is CLOSER to the camera and it looks like he's tiptoeing. Brad still edges him despite his relax posture and bent knees! That means Brad is clears 5'11". If Brad was really 5'9" like some downgraders here claim, he'd never edge a tiptoeing Penn! Finally, does Brad have the monopoly on lifts? Everyone knows he lifts but how do we know his co-stars don't in height conscious Hollywood? If everyone lifts and Brad still comes out the tallest, that means he is. Look at the length of his forearms Click Here he doesn't have T-Rex arms like 5'8" Damon who looks short even when he lifts. Brad NEVER looks short and always looks at least 3 inches taller than Damon (not the same height at all). And back to Troy, Bana is a super tall actor, knees are the same level and Bana barely looks taller than Pitt Click Here Does it really look to you like there's more than 10cm between Bana and Pitt? and notice that Pitt looks like he's hunching a bit with shoulders rolled down whereas Bana has perfect posture!

Pitt the new Stallone? Shorter than 5'11" Harrison Ford but a few inches taller than 5'11" David Beckham? Shorter than 5'10" Clooney and taller than 5'11" Beckham? Have you guys seen his movie with legend Robert Redford? Check Brads shoes and check Robert's height!
Sorry but this guy is a joke. At least Tom Cruise is consistent with his lifts-elevators!
Guys don't forget Brad wearing cowboy boots was shorter than Geena Davis in flats.
There are tons of examples that wouldn't make any sense if we weren't considering one variable: LIFTS.
Brad is not 180, that's something in we most agree.
Yolosan said on 7/Aug/15

Rob, I don´t think that pic with Cruise is comparable at all.David is doing a selfie, he bends over a bit and Cruise is also standing behind David. Now look at the pic where Brad and David are standing straight in the same line. Brad not only looks taller but his shoulder-height is also above David´s. I just can´t imagine what shoes he was wearing and if I were Brad I would feel uncomfortable for towering over David bx so much.
Gregory Barbosa said on 7/Aug/15
MJBeck, think about it, the pic where he "towers" over Beck ham is actually pretty damning evidence that Pitt wears GodziLIFTS. We know he and Clooney are more or less the same height but Pitt tends to appear taller due to his immaculate posture and shoe magic.
George looks like his standing on some Tabouret on that pic with Beckham and he still gets edged out. He honestly looks tiny. Maybe it's because he's next to Julia... dunno
But then, when we see Brad looking almost 3" taller than Beckham, that's just a cover for Lifters Gone Wild, the soccer edition.
MarcusTheSwede said on 7/Aug/15
MJBeck: you need to understand all the movies you list doesnt mean a single thing in evidence. All movies that have shorter actors use elevation boots wich is specially build for the Actor to increase height and also movie is just movie and they can angle out every single imperfection in height diffrence in editing the elevation of camera so youre talk about Brads height in movies are totally not relevant to the question whatsoever. Whats relevant is just Google Brad Pitt George Clooney and Matt Damon off set camera pictures that shows clearly Brad isnt much taller Then Matt Damon at best same height without his massive heels. Anything listed over 177cm for BP is ridicilous. He is also a known liftwearer and you have absolutely wrong information If you Say he isnt. For gods sake just look at his heels and Also look at when he Wears his dress boots you can clearly see his ankles above the shoes upper line and you can see a line pushing out from within the shoe that is the insole pushing out and side of the insole makes a mark/line along the shoe. Several pictures with BP wearing High heels with insole pushing out has been posted here during the years but Google has removed some of the worst because some "mysterious" person myst have wanted them gone. Well I really rest my case so to speak and you also should Know George Clooney has a personal joke with Brad Pitt about Brad being shorter George often Say "Brad youre so irratebly tall" Wich is their inside group joke about Brads height isnt as High as he makes out on the movies. George knows Brads true height and jokes about it. BP is 177 at best without heels insoles. Thanks
Yolosan said on 6/Aug/15
Pitt was obviously standing on a chair and Beckham must have been barefeet when he got towered by him. You just can´t look shorter than Clooney at times and then tower over a legit 5´11 guy such as David. This is the most ridiculous height pic I have ever seen next to Stallone towering over Willis and Travolta while matching Arnold´s height in 2005. lol
[Editor Rob: Yolosan, it might just have been the way Beckham was standing because you can see he did a selfie with Tom Cruise and looked a few inches shorter than he should have.]

Clooney looks 5'9.5" next to Beckham there but both of those guys have lousy posture. I still think he would be 5'10 range standing straight. The evidence of Pitt wearing lifts is great though, looking 4-5cm taller than Beckham and yet when hanging out with Clooney(outside of red carpet events) they can look very close in height.

Anything between 5'10 and 5'11 flat is reasonable for Pitt, its hard because of the lifts. I still think he is between the two.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Aug/15
@ hijopotamus He's never worn 3 inch lifts in his life. Look at his shoes seriously. I'd be surprised if he wore lifts over an inch in most of his dress shoes.
MJBeck said on 3/Aug/15
Just look at 21,22 Jump Street. Pitt looks as tall as Tatum when next to Jonah Hill. Tatum is very tall and towers over most actors. The same goes for Pitt. I've never seen Pitt being edged in any movie except when next to Giants like Hector, Freeman and that guy from the Tibet movie. Also during the skating scene, the difference between the two actors is CLEARLY the same. It's not like they put Pitt on a platform or made him were lifts in his skates. That's an accident waiting to happen. Also, when he was almost same height as Hector and Petraclus who is another giant, his footgear was different because he was playing a semi-god, not because of lifts. Watch Trojan again, it's impossible he could have run the way he did during the duel scene at the beginning when he slays Boagrius the super giant. Even then, he didn't look much shorter than Boagrius. That means Brad Pitt is also a giant. He totally dominated Sean Penn when he played his father. Penn looked like a small kid next to him. If anything, Brad sometimes tries to look shorter than he really is so he can get booked for parts. I'm not sure he will look like a giant next to Bale but let's not forget that Bale played Batman who IS a superhero Giant!

Cobra, Beckham taller than Clooney and Clooney in some pics taller than Pitt.
What we know for sure is that David coukdnt care less about height as he used to walk in sandals and his 1st interview after signing for Real Madrid he was in his room with some journalists and he was barefeet. Google David Beckham barefeet and see what I mean. Now find pics of Pitt with no shoes or without tricky shoes or lifts. Pitt can be 177 and with 3 inch help can surpass Beckhams 180 as we can see in these pics.

I meet brad Pitt 8 month ago in one of restaurants of Los Angeles, and I'm 180 cm, he taller than me, I'm sure brad Pitt certainly 183 cm, he is 6 ft

@Marcus: Man take it easy. This is just a height related celebrity page, nothing else. You're going a little overboard with your facts. Also, I agree with the fact that Pitt's height varies a lot with pictures, but I still don't think he's as low as 5'9". He's 5'10.25" minimum. In fight club, he looks 5'10.5 with Jared Leto in most scenes, but a strong 5'11 with Ed Norton in different scenes. It's all in the camera, the camera angles. Many people have little to no idea what wonders a camera's lens can do.

Brad is definitely a 5-10 guy. Put him in a helpful 2" shoe and he's a six footer. Simple as that. Johnny depp is in the 5-8 range, cruise about 5-7. Damon 5-9. Clooney 5-10.5 Reason Brad looks bigger than Beckam? Beckam may have had small shoes while spit had big shoes. That's all it takes.

"Rob, would this listing be the same had he claimed 6ft on that teen magazine? Maybe 181cm?"

That's a good point. If he claimed to be 6'0", I'm quite certain that he would be listed around 5'11.5". He gives off the impression of being as tall as Leonardo DiCaprio and Jake Gyllenhaal. It just goes to show you how difficult it is to adjudicate in cases with such small differences.

If I had to give one non-fractional height to all of them, it would be 5'11". I think Brad Pitt can seem the tallest, because he got relatively wide shoulders combined with a lean physique. Leo and Jake are not as athletically built, with the exception of Gyllenhaal in "Southpaw" - he is apparently capable of achieving an athletic physique, but he usually looks like this:

That is, very skinny and not stoutly or athletically built at all.
kevin said on 2/Aug/15
jesus christ those pics with beckham are killing me. he looks easy 2 inches taller altho the angle might be bad for judging height. i really wanna see his shoes haha both barefoot shoultd really close... i would even say beckham would edge pitt
MarcusTheSwede said on 1/Aug/15
Hijopotamus. Couldnt agree more, people dont f get that pictures without showing the shoes isnt worth **** for all we Know he could be standing on a f box god dammig some people dont think just post plain stupid **** without any relevance in evidence or any kind of way.
About 5 10 said on 1/Aug/15
That's confirmed to me that Brad Pitt is 5' 11". He could not pull off looking 6' 0-1" range with a legit 5' 11" guy like Beckham, if he was only 5' 9.5-10", could he?
About 5 10 said on 1/Aug/15
Haha, here he goes again. Brad Pitt making David Beckham only look 5' 9"...
guk said on 1/Aug/15
How is he pulling off looking so tall with beckham? His lifts must be massive!
yeah right said on 1/Aug/15
He's a 5'11 guy deal with it.
hijopotamus said on 1/Aug/15
This is hillarious! In other pics we have Brad shorter than Clooney who is under 5'11". Pitt is the new Stallone
Any pic or appereance of Brad wearing shoes is IRRELEVANT. Btw, Schiffer is under 180 and Schiffer is not wearing lifts!
What's next? Brad wearing stilettos and fanboys in here clapping he towers Cruise?
MJBeck said on 31/Jul/15
Pitt towers over Claudia Schiffer who is a top model. He towers over the other baseball players in Moneyball. In Troy, he towered over Orlando Bloom and was almost the same height as Hector who is a giant. He towered over Tom Cruise who is a super star. Why would Tom, who is known to have height insecurities, agree not to wear lifts if Pitt wore them. In all candid pics, he towers over his fans and is always seen leaning into the pic. He towers over Angelina Jolie who is the same height as Johnny Depp. He was almost same height as Morgan Freeman in Seven. He makes Matt Damon look like George Constanza. If anything, he should be upgraded. Everyone will be surprised when he even edges Christian Bale in their next movie! Pitt is very tall but looks smaller due to his body proportions.
Arch Stanton said on 31/Jul/15
Wow, check out the height diff here Click Here Pitt looks a strong 6'1 there haha!
Arch Stanton said on 31/Jul/15

Yup, Pitt looks 6ft with Becks.
Dan said on 31/Jul/15
There are pics online right now of Pitt with David Beckam at Guy Ritchie's wedding and Pitt looks a good 1" or 1.5" taller. Probably wearing lifts but there you go
Allie said on 31/Jul/15
@xHeylo, I did say that Claudia was also slightly shorter. But the difference was barely an inch. There's the possibility that Claudia could be slightly above 5'11.. Was always tall.. With that aside, I'd say Pitt's a weak 5'11.. 5'10 And 3/4.. Sounds better cause he only edges put Claudia due to footware imo.
Matthew190 said on 30/Jul/15
xHeylo says on 25/Jul/15
Allie, lol, definitely not "dead on". There's like a 2-3cm difference..


No chance that's what a 3 cm difference looks like in the photo. Camera angles, posture, footwear always have to be remembered, but he's just edging her out barely.
Jeff said on 29/Jul/15
Rob, do you think he'll manage to "reach" Christian Bale's height in The Big Short? I mean, I wouldn't be surprised if he managed to pull it off. Remember how tall he looked next to Bana for the Troy premiere..
[Editor Rob: some actors have the clout to demand angles and setups to enhance their height. I've no idea if Pitt is one of them though. ]
hijopotamus said on 29/Jul/15
Heylo, another pic where we cannot see their footwear?? We don't even know if the ground is flat! Dude...Markus, you are so right about Heylo.
It's so funny how some people say he kooks 177-179 and that makes it 5'11"
180 is not even 5'11", guys!
Pizzaman said on 29/Jul/15
@Hey, nice pic! How high does he look there? 178-179? His flip flops give 2-3 cm. I think my 180 friends would edge him out slightly.
hijopotamus said on 29/Jul/15
Hey, that's close to a 2 inch flip flops.
Good find!
184.3cm (Night) said on 29/Jul/15
Those arent flip flops, they are solid inch sandals. I have noticed he is height aware not as much as Vin Diesel but still.
Matthew190 said on 28/Jul/15
5'10.5" is really the highest I would place him at.
Heylo said on 28/Jul/15
Here's screencaps of Rick and Brad in Across The Tracks. Rick is 177cm. They look the same sometimes but at average, he looks 2cm taller than Rick throughout the movie.

Click Here
Click Here

Minimum 177-178cm. I think he could be 179.
Brad was far from a star at this stage (1991) and why would he wear lifts in a movie where he runs a lot? He wore trainers or converse throughout the movie, Rick did the same.
Heylo said on 28/Jul/15
Marcustheswede: I was to hard on your grammar, it actually looks pretty good compared to your comments a few months ago.
Heylo said on 28/Jul/15
jamie179cm, I agree with you. 5'9 isn't a bad height. But male models heights (5'11-6'2) seems to be a must for super stars. Hollywood = shallow industry.
Heylo said on 28/Jul/15
Marcusswede: What is it that you don't understand? You CAN'T CAN'T CAN'T get that much taller with lifts without looking ridiculous. Just look at Ian Somerhalder for instance.

Rob Lowe which was pictured with Brad on the photo I linked claims 6ft to be his height (okay not exactly but 5'11 and 3/4...) and he is listed here at a comfortably 5'10. Brad could have a small lift but not more. In that case, he could himself be around 5'10 but he's NOT shorter than 5'10 as you are saying(?).

He looks 177-178cm with Paltrow barefoot and looks a good 2-3cm taller than 177cm Rick Schroder in Across The Tracks from 1991, just google these damn photos. I don't care how many photos you link which shows how his feet bulge out a bit from a flat shoe like it's a proof of how he magically gets 7cm taller, he still can't boost himself so much without looking like Tom Cruise or Robert Downey Jr.

I am Swedish as well and are wondering if you ever learned any english in school?
You have to work on your grammar mate. (I know my grammar isn't flawless but I don't think people have trouble reading my comments) As for you, I barely understand your comments.

Brad is 5'9.5'', but was 5'10 in his youth.
MarcusTheSwede said on 27/Jul/15
Heylo: just a kind question how can you Say Pitt looks strong height in the picture you posted. NO picture of the shoes he is wearing well the claim is worthless without pictures because for all we Know he could be wearing his High heeled boots and or lifts. I dont understand Why you f post pictures without any validity to them because they dont show any part of the shoes. Its the most importent of the entire picture you could have posted a picture of a f rabbit and it would have same meaning. God. Dont want to be rude but Why the hell post a picture with no evidence value. Thanks
Shell said on 25/Jul/15
Please someone find a picture of brad Pitt barefoot or in flip flops. Good luck there are none. Except for the nude picture of him and Paltrow where they look very close in height, there are no pictures of him without boots or sneakers on. It seems that he must be hiding his true height, he even wears sneakers on the beach and shoes at a pool.
Heylo said on 25/Jul/15
Allie, lol, definitely not "dead on". There's like a 2-3cm difference..
Jeff said on 25/Jul/15
Rob, would this listing be the same had he claimed 6ft on that teen magazine? Maybe 181cm?
[Editor Rob: at times he could look taller than 5ft 11, but generally I think the 5ft 11 was what fitted him best.]
Heylo said on 24/Jul/15
178cm Rob Lowe and 180cm Brad Pitt in the early 00s: Click Here

We don't have any photos of their footwear (couldn't find any) but Brad looks 181cm.
Yes it's possible that he had a small lift in his shoe but could be the same with Rob who claims almost 6ft...

However, strong 179cm for Brad and a strong 177cm for Rob is not impossible.
Allie said on 24/Jul/15
Either Pitt was slouching or something.. cause here's Claudia Schiffer standing straight, not bending her legs or anything and wearing flats... she honestly looks dead on in height or only a tad bit shorter..

184.3cm (Night) said on 24/Jul/15
Im sticking with 179cm (5'10.5"), havent seen any evidence that he is visibly shorter ot taller than that (pics with lifts not inc).

He wrote down on an audition form 5'10 and also claimed 5'11, my guess is he falls between and just rounded. Also many people guess 179cm guys at minimum 182cm.
amaterasu said on 24/Jul/15
I would say he is closer to 5'11" than he is to 5'9". Anywhere between 5'10.25" and 5'11". He is not under 178cm.
John said on 22/Jul/15
@Gregory Barbosa: But 5'9" isn't short.........not even close actually. It's dead on average.......
hijopotamus said on 22/Jul/15
I'm 182 and tried this--- put insoles 2 in each army boots. No lifts or elevator because I'm not going to buy them just to try this experiment, obviously! Ok lads, I reached 188 and maybe half cm more depending on "I don't know what exactly". Anyway,from being 5'12 and a bit I reached the 6'2 mark. I wasnt uncomfortable at all and even I coul run a bit but should be risky.
My build is ectomorph with muscle around 10-12% bf the whole year.
My boots looked the exact SAME as Pitts in those pics he wears boots or trainers.
I can wear very long wide pants and nobody would notice. It would be so funny to see people discussing my height and being rated as a 6'1 guy when Im not even 6'!!
Same case with Brad.
Same same...but shorter than myself,if that matters.
Gregory Barbosa said on 22/Jul/15
It's really simple. Brad was compelled to stand on red light district type stilettos in Spy Games so as to look taller than Redford. Redford is one short dude! Everyone who's ever met him in person will tell you how astonishingly short he is. 5'9" max for Brad, you can bet the barn on it.

jamie179cm says on 16/Jul/15
Yes i agree to the lifts part,i know it by first hand,one of my friends appears around 167-168 to me most of the time,but when we go out or on more formal events,he wears dress shoes,and manages to look 5cm taller in those specific shoes,sometimes even as much as 6-7cm,but it's probably has to do with the impeccable posture he usually has.And no i dont call people trolls for no reason.The thing is,you cant say he's just 175,because when he wears lifts,how the hell people pegg him at 183-185??And even if he wears big 10cm shoes,he'll probably get 8-9cm of actual height,just realise how shoe lifts work.Again,there hasn't been any STRONG evidence that shows Brad under 178cm,IMO.
Silent_D said on 20/Jul/15
John.D, that's just too much personal detail dude but since you mentioned it, maybe you should consider clipping it. And honestly, don't think most here are insecure haters, it's just common sense and applied logic. Just google Jolie in heels next to Hoffman & Black in sneakers. Have a nice one.
Height183 said on 20/Jul/15
Looks a decent 5'11'' to me. Spot on listing by Rob in my opinion.
Dmeyer said on 19/Jul/15
Click Here , Pitt has 0.3-0.4in more shoes and yet looks 0.75 in taller so no more than 1cm between them
