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."

5"9'75 is possible if Gwyneth is a real 5"9'
Allie said on 2/Oct/15
Rampage, that's cause he's shoes. :) did you see the picture where she wasn't bending her legs and standing as straight as she could be? Brad barely edged her out! 179 cm for him.

6'1" is impossible for Brad Pitt. If he's 6'1", then about every other celebrity needs an upgrade.
Charlie said on 1/Oct/15
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.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/15
He actually looks a strong 6ft w/h Claudia Schiffer!
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

@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.

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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Sep/15
He's a pretty solid 5ft11...

jiss said on 18/Sep/15
who cares. 5'10 is tall. As a guy I'd kill to be that height :(
Pea Sea said on 17/Sep/15
He is 5' 11". Gwyneth Paltrow is not as tall as him. She is not above 5' 9" and there is no way he is only 5' 9", is there!
Kingpindom said on 17/Sep/15
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 .
hijopotamus said on 16/Sep/15
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?
Allen said on 15/Sep/15
If he was 5'10 he claimed being 6'1! With those ridiculous lifts of his!!

Dan said on 15/Sep/15
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
Filippo said on 3/Sep/15
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.
[Editor Rob: it was probably Brad having a word in the 'content editor's' ear. But really, maybe when creating these screens sometimes not as much care is given.]
Dan said on 30/Aug/15
Click Here

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.
RobV said on 29/Aug/15
@ 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).
bernie said on 28/Aug/15
no shorter than 5'10" def. ....5'10,5" is a good estimate, i guess..
Heylo said on 28/Aug/15
hijopotamus, Click Here
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.

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.

@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.
Jeff said on 21/Aug/15
Rob, who seems the most height-aware: Pitt or Cruise?
[Editor Rob: at times I think Cruise probably thinks more of his height, especially recently with his new apparent elevator shoes.]
Pierre said on 21/Aug/15
i would say....probably not 5"11 barefoot.... and probably not 5"10' barefoot....(and Gwyneth is listed 5"9' and she's probably shorter than this).

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).
Gregory Barbosa said on 16/Aug/15
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?!?
dmeyer said on 15/Aug/15
The photo wwith becks mean nothing ,, theyr posture isnt same and the floor isnt seen anyway. Brad has to. Be near 5'11
Cool Cat said on 15/Aug/15
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"
Nearly 5 10 said on 15/Aug/15
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.

WTF,he now looks 3-4 inches taller than a supposed 5'11 Beckham?! He must have major lifts in this one,but even taking that into account,he would still look atleast an inch taller than Becks...! 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
Click Here

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.

5'10. 6'1 in lifts.
MJBeck said on 8/Aug/15
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.

@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.
WAF said on 2/Aug/15

"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.

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.

@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.

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.

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.

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.

Yes we can have diffrent opinions but we all should strive to present good evidence not ****!! That picture you show so clearly also show the lack of thinking!! The shoes on Brad isnt even on the freakn picture!! And yes Parker If the shoes isnt in the picture there isnt much of evidence is it so that makes it pretty f hard to see anything!! God damned. No need to read anything back from people who just post **** and the carousel goes round and round my god. Thanks and bye to you Parker. Dont want to fight just so tired of meaningless posts from people with idiotic pictures when all people that been around discussing Brads height for years and presented tons of evidence over and over again that BP should be downgraded due to his massive heels and clearly showned height increasing soles and yes the soles can be seen when he wear dressboots its the line that is showed outside of the shoe due to the pressure from the insole inside the shoe. And yes you can Google it. Great site thats all for me tonight Thanks
yeah right said on 17/Jul/15
5'9 Harry Styles strugles to look like a solid 5'11 guy in his massive boots, yet some people here claim that Pitt, who can look strong 6ft-6'1 range in his big heeled boots, is also 5'9 xD Logic must be an empty term for a lot of you.
Mar said on 17/Jul/15
It's all about the camra angles that make you either look taller or shorter. The same picture with Claudia Schiffer, if you google Brad Pitt Claudia Schiffer, you will see that is the same picture with different angle Claudia is taller than Brad.

Bana has a solid 1.25 in shoe so even if bana is 6'2 flat he has to be 6'3.25 shoes on and bloom around 5'11 shoes on
NBAer said on 16/Jul/15
Parker says on 16/Jul/15
He looks atleast 183 with 188 listed Eric Bana,and Orlando Bloom looks only about 177 next to him(or basically 174 since Brad is LISTED 180).Strange pic,but it definitely destroys any 5'8-5'9 guesses.Ofcourse that's assuming Brad is in normal shoes,which he isn't(that's obviously not an 8cm difference,it's MAX 5cm between him and Eric Bana).So again anything under 178 flat is out of the question.
Mar said on 16/Jul/15
The picture posted by Parker; Are people really so naive, that they don't know/think that Brad uses shoes that have 2-3inch edge over normal shoes. For example, I use constantly shoes that make me 6 - 6'1 and I'm 5'9.

5'9-10 for Brad is reality, over/under that is absurd.
hijopotamus said on 16/Jul/15
Jonathan D, obviously I was just joking. This is about Brad and not about me but as you are so interested I would tell you NO, I DONT HAVE HEIGHT INSECURITY.
Brad seems to do. He wears tricky lifts and I am barefoot most of the time.
This is all about height. Nothing to do with being positive or blonde or fat but god to hear he is a positive guy, thank you.
Marcus, some guys claim Schiffer to be 5'10 as she looks same height with Luke Perry.

@MarcusTheSwede says on 14/Jul/15

I really don't think people are agressive that you think Brad is 5'9. I think they just find it hilarious.Each to their own, we would have no site if everyone thought the same.

Here he is stood between 6.2.25 listed Eric Bana and 5'10.5 listed Orlando Bloom
So 6'3 and 5'11 in footwear. To be fair, Orlando does look ~4 inches shorter than Bana. So a 5'9 Pitt standing between 6'3 and 5'11 men. Must admit I can't see it, but each to their own.

Moke said on 15/Jul/15
It is unbelievable how intense the discussion of Brad Pitt's height is! Is it because Brad is just one of the most influential actors of the last 2 decades so that many ppl want to at least make him a short man? Heigth estimates range from 6' to only 5'7''. That's madness. I personally think he's 5'10 now. He fooled me for years into thinking he'd be a strong 5'11 :)

ok first guys im not jealous or being troll or anything but i believe pitt is 175cm the guys lifts are not normal and not to mention his barely taller paltrow anyway its my opinion so Don't disrespect it
NBAer said on 15/Jul/15
Silent_D: I agree with you Brad is not even close to 180cm without his massive heels and or height increasing insoles either way I wouldnt Dare Say 175 because everybody that claim higher are so aggressive as soon as his real height is told wich is 175cm. Without his massive heels(and yes everyone that doubts could just Google Brad Pitt High heels picture section) and its for everybody to see) but im not here to fight just want the truth and I agree totally with you 175cm not a fraction more for Brad without his special footwear and or insoles. Nice seeing someone here that sees it for what it is and not for how they "want" it to be. Ok have a great day. BP needs downgrade.
MarcusTheSwede,you're an obvious troll.Look just at the above photos.His wife,Angelina,is listed 169 here and is likely abit less than that in reality(i really dont think she's over 167 barefoot,maybe 168,but that doesnt mean im downgrading her because im a troll hater,i still like her movies and personality,no hate intended).She's obviously in heels,and Brad probably does have some 'assistance'in his shoes,but still manages to look 180.Secondly,he looks about 182-183 next to 168 listed Jonan Hill,likely in lifts again,but with WORSE posture(he's bending his leg).And thirdly,he actually can look 185 with 180 listed Claudia Schiffer in the last photo above,but she's obviously losing height,and definitely has flatter shoes than Brad.If she was to stand equally as him,and with same footwear heel,they would look almost the same,in fact i still think Brad would have 1cm on her,in NORMAL footwear.And if he really was 175,how the hell does he look 183 next to a 168 guy like Hill??He would have to fill in 3-inch lifts to his dress-shoes,giving him actually about 4 inches of height,which doesn't sound logical to me(and dont start saying Hill is actually 163 or something,there's no proof on that yet).Both you and Silent-D are obviously jealous trolls,i dont get what do you earn by downgrading him so much(even if he wears major lifts in each photo above,at worst you could argue 177 for him,still more believable than 175).But really,anything less than 178 is a joke.

Hey Brad, stop posting with different names, will you?!

HAHA laugh my hairy ass out! as if Brad would check online posts about him! I've met him and HE glows with positivity!!! Just because YOU have height fixations and insecurities, it doesn't mean everyone has them. Brad is tall and that's a fact. The sooner you learn to ACCEPT that, the better off you'll be.

And what ridiculous logic are you using to assume Claudia is "losing 6cm" due to her posture? You must really WANT him to be short if you somehow managed to convince yourself of that. Claudia is not even close to losing 6cm, unless cm does not refer to the metric system commonly used in Europe.

Maybe you should consider sticking to the facts next time instead of pulling data out of some alternate dimension?

Pitt NEVER looks short! I've followed his career for close to three decades so I am pretty sure I can speak with authority when I say that Rob's estimate is accurate. This is clear as day.

What's next, insecure downgraders will claim they wrestled with Pitt in high school and that he was shorter than the entire female gymnastics team?

175cm not a fraction more. The desperate upgraders here are just fantasizing. Claudia is tilting her hips, easily loosing 6cm just because of that and the resulting angle of her bent legs. Try the pause yourself, if not too insecure. If she were to stand up straight, she'd be taller than Pitt even in her flat slippers.

It will be interesting to see how he holds up against Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale in The Big Short. Allegedly, he was given lifts so he could reach 6 feet and match gosling and bale, although this has been disputed
truth said on 11/Jul/15
He is strong average/upper average for a white dude.
NBAer said on 11/Jul/15
He actually does look over 180 with Claudia Schiffer,but she's losing height and probably has flat ballerina shoes,Brad is in boots,possibly in a small extra lift like 1-2 cm and has better posture.Adding all these,if Claudia is a legit 180 model as listed and had similar posture AND footwear with Mr Pitt,she would be almost identical with him.So this picture actually gives an 181 impression for Brad(without any inserts),if Claudia is 180.If she's abit less,like 178-179(which is possible),Brad is MAX 180,meaning he's likely closer to 179 in reality(and im not saying this cause i desperately want him downgraded by even a fraction,it's only a logical assumption)
Gregory Barbosa said on 10/Jul/15
Totally agree with you Hijo, most folks get an emotional imprint linking celebs to a certain height. As for Rob, can't really blame him, most shorties would avoid him like the plague if he were to post their real heights and frame his pics full vertical from toe to head.
Also, this site being mainly for entertainment, I find a lot of the fun comes from the differing opinions x_D

Hi, I have been a good friend with Brad for long time and I can totally say that barefeet he is something between 5' 9,5-10. He has always had very atletic build and really good posture. Also wears constantly 1 to 2 inch lifts.

There's a picture down below where Pitt is with Waltz. Though Pitt is obviously slouching, there might need to be more discussion. Another picture from the event shows that Waltz might have a heel advantage and that Pitt is clearly taller, but it's worth looking into at least. That being said, I can't see him under 5'10 and do think he is probably 5'11 but with major height insecurity. Hence the Cuban heels. I don't see any reason to where lifts when you're already on the upper end of average height.

A6'2Guy said on 3/Jul/15
@Zack I do believe are exaggerating things a bit too much, "midget land" (not even simply "short", midget land apparently), I bet you if you were to get every average height for a man in every country and averaged it you'd get something like 5'9 - 5'10, I don't know where you are going with "midget land" there.

I bet you are from somewhere in Scandinavia and are exaggerating things a bit much to be honest. A few I've seen on here believe 6'4 is average or 6'4 is just enough to make you a "manly" height just according to their personal experiences, they are faulty at best. The highest average height I've seen is about 6'0, I do not know where are getting "barely average from" either, you sound like a troll.

Heylo said on 2/Jul/15
Sorry, I mean to write that he was scraping 6 feet and 0.5 inches in Fight Club, not 6ft. While Norton in his shoes was about the same height or slightly taller. Of course Brad had an shoe advantage!
Heylo said on 2/Jul/15
I can't believe people who believe that he is around 5'9... As a matter of fact, some photos where he is supposed to look shorter than Clooney is in angles where Clooney has an advantage. If you were smart enough to just slide to the next photo next to him at the same event, you could have seen that Brad actually looked taller.

178cm, that could arguably be his height but the odds are just the same at 181cm in my opinion. Even though he actually could be a strong 5'10, I think he looks taller than guys around that height. Hell, he even looks 6ft+ next to 5'9 guys.

Rob have told us about lifts and how it works, when it gets noticeable and all that so we can't deny the fact that Brad Pitt CAN'T wear massive lifts without looking very suspicious. Small lifts, yes it's possible but that wouldn't give no more than around 1 full inch (not counting heel on shoe).

He was scraping 6ft with thick street style shoes (and perhaps very small lifts) in Fight Club next to Edward Norton. Brad had a better posture than Norton, therefor he could look taller and sometimes the exact same height as Ed.
Peyman said on 2/Jul/15
He has claimed 5ft 10in???

I'd wouldn't go with anything under that mark
Actually he pretty much looks a 179cm guy.
Maybe 178.5 at night at peak
And 178 nowadays.

Clooney is a full cm shorter

And these would make matt damon 176cm
MJKoP said on 2/Jul/15
Gregory Barbosa: Haha, just because I'm not some insecure, jealous downgrader I must have a "man crush". I'm 5'8" and I'm just fine with the fact that Pitt has at least three inches on me.

And what's this nonsense about Christoph Waltz needing a "four inch upgrade asap"? Waltz is way shorter than Pitt. You can easily tell that from every time they've appeared together because Waltz is only 5'7". You must be completely and utterly blind if you think they're even remotely similar in size.

Rob why dont you change his height to 178cm or 5'10,since that's what he supposedly claimed in an audition form?To be fair,that's what i always thought about his height,a solid 178 guy that can easily look 180 or slightly more with good posture and shoe-lifts...I think 178 is the best shout for Brad,at worst he could be 177 range,but 178 suits him well.

MJKoP, John Wayne did NOT wear lifts. That was a made up story by Robert Mitchum who didn't get along with Wayne. EVERYONE knew it back then and nowadays people that werent even born when John was already dead affirm he wore lifts lol.
As Goebbels said "a lie repeated often becomes the truth".
I'm indifferent if Brad is 6' or 5'10". Obviously my life doesn't change but this site is about height of celebrities and this is what we do, discuss about the issue and arguing between ourselves is ridiculous. Dude, this should be trivial and even fun. Relax.
Ps- do you think a guy that stands 5'11" is going to wear those massive lifts he is wearing in that pic with his kid? If he was 5'11" he wouldnt look that short besides Eric Bana. He looks like 2 inches shorter even on his lifts!
Under 5'10" being generous.

MarcusTheSwede: You're not the owner/administrator of this site you are in absolutely no position to moderate the lengths of my posts. That's Rob's job, who also happens to agree with me that BP is 180cm.

You can sit there and babble about how he's the greatest man in the world all you want, but to say he's nowhere's near his height is flat-out inaccurate and makes it highly likely that you DO indeed have a grudge against him - considering that you're arguing against the massively overwhelming amount of evidence in regards to his size.

John Wayne also wore lifts; I guess he's short, too...right, Marcus??

Marcus,spot on. Pitt wears massive lifts
Click Here

that look ridiculous and the one time he wore regular shoes he was shorter thAn Clooney!
Click Here

Why didnt he wear the sandals everyone wore in Troy and wore those high boots? Yes, to hide his lifts.

He is under 5'9 and reaches the 5'11" mark with shoes plus lifts.

MJKoP: hey If you want to write a freakn article go to another forum. Keep it short. And yes Brad is a Lot shorter then 180cm. It has nothing to do with anyone being insecure its just fact. Everyone just Google Brad Pitt insoles and Heels and you clearly see his massive heels and also the insoles pushing out from within shoe that creates a line visible from outside of shoe. Also Brad Pitt is freakn awsome he is a epic Actor and seems like a really really friendly guy so this is not about trying to bash on someone but his height is not 180cm not even close without his massive heels and insoles. Have you ever seen BP with sandals or socks well its pretty darn rare for a reason. BP awsome awsome man better Then most including myself but his height is not 180 not even close. Thanks

MJKoP says on 26/Jun/15 He NEVER looks even remotely short, and VERY rarely looks as low as "average"

well MJKoP of course from the vantage point of a short dude, he doesn't. Thing is, for most guys who clear 6'4", anything under 6'is barely average and 5'10" under is midget land. In the barefoot pic with Paltrow, he does look short. To help you understand what I mean, get a ladder and climb to the top in a crowded place, then and only then you will get a modicum of what being tall feels like. I'm not calling you subhuman or anything please don't take it the wrong way, it's just that to us tall guys, most dudes look like children. Peace

Don't try to backpedal on your previous said Brad Pitt looks "short" sometimes and the other times "average height". You didn't say "in comparison" to anyone or anything, you just spoke in a completely neutral and generalized manner. Of course a strong 5'11" man will look short compared to someone taller than 6'4"; I'm not debating THAT.

And why do all these insecure Pitt downgraders constantly bring up the candid Paltrow photographs like it's their manna from heaven?? It's hardly an ideal shot for demonstrating heights. Pitt is clearly leaning in to kiss Paltrow, and surrendering his own height in order to match her lesser stature. Surely you can grasp the concept that two people's lips need to be aligned with each other in order for a successful smooch to ensue?? ;-)

Anyone who believes Paltrow and Pitt are the same height are either blind, dumb, or trolling. Just because YOU are very tall it doesn't mean that someone who is short to YOU is in any way flat-out "short". Brad Pitt is clearly taller than 5'9"-5'10" range dudes and can easily hold his own with 6 foot plusers. Hell, when he chooses to wear slightly bulky footwear, he can easily fool people in the flesh into thinking that he'd surpass the six foot mark barefoot. Of course all things are relative, but when you look at the U.S. and world height statistics, Brad Pitt is indisputably taller than average for his age, race, and country of origin demographics.

Pitt can only "look short" in the same way that Shaq can when standing next to a life-sized wax figure of Robert Wadlow.

Sam said on 27/Jun/15
Yeah, without lifts his legs look a little on the shorter side which makes me wonder if he is more 5ft10+ rather than 5ft11, (although he does generally look 5ft11 in decent footwear + longer looking legs). I think anywhere in the 5ft10 - 5ft11 range is a good listing for Brad, more so than Clooney's listing who I don't think is anymore than 5ft10 in my opinion.
Heylo said on 26/Jun/15
Like someone said, yes he doesn't have the longest legs. Not very short but compared to male models (where long legs is desirable) Brad have short legs. But this is very common among caucasian males and it makes the person look shorter(especially in photos). But it's quite easy making them appear taller with shoes and good fitting pants!

Dmeyer, it's not that we desperately need him to be short. It's just that the heights some celebrities claim are so obviously inflated that we feel like calling bs. Pitt's case is dubious as he sometimes looks short and sometimes of average height.

He NEVER looks even remotely short, and VERY rarely looks as low as "average". 99.98% of the time he looks either comfortably above average, or downright strapping. He's nothing under 5'11", that's for sure.
Gx79 said on 25/Jun/15
Rob do you think he can look 5'11.5
[Editor Rob: at times he can pull off that range. But, since he wrote 5ft 11 when about 24, that's good enough to say it's highly doubtful he's over it without the aid of some bigger footwear.]
SwedeHeight said on 25/Jun/15
Rob, do you feel that Brad is probably a lift wearer or is just someone that is wise to his footwear? I feel that is the big unsolved question regarding Pitt's height.
[Editor Rob: at some events he went for a large dress heel...a 1.5 inch style, to give him that extra boost. That's when he could look more solid 5ft 11-11.5 range, other times he has worn boots and fitting half inchers is a subtle method to avoid detection.

Even for me it'd be hard to tell a 1cm lift in a boot as the foot angle won't be pushed up that much...]

5'11 guy barefoot says on 23/Jun/15
Haha that's why they never show his legs or full body shot. Pitt has short legs. He grew disproportionately like most of us. He put down 5'10" in the 90's so he probably grew an inch to make the 180cm.


He was already in his late 20s by 1990, well into his 30s by the end of the decade. Definitely no growth since then, I'm afraid.

After singinf years of pic Pitt is defenitely above 5'11 he can easily look 6ft so very unreasonable to calim 5'10 for him , to those who claim that height is not sirius because you discredit the fact of body proportion and good balance he receves extra aura point from his good gonail angle and ideal bone structure bringing intensity to his eyes. Face it people, you are starring at a a quality brew and well preserved bean roasted aroma so 5'11.75 is most likely ask yourself instead why you are so despirate to have him as short or shrter than you?
James B said on 21/Jun/15
Rob maybe hovering around 181cm 20 years ago?
Dmeyer said on 21/Jun/15
Click Here , those are 0.8in lifts that give a solid 1.2-1.3cm no more thaught wearing that in a dress shoe is easy if wearing a 1.1in shoes plus 0.75 in that give 0.5in you could look near 2cm than your réal height easily
Matthew said on 20/Jun/15
I could buy 5'10.5" I guess. I struggle with the full 5'11" for Pitt barefoot, even if he can comfortably clear it footwear.
Gx79 said on 20/Jun/15
Rob do you think he wear shoe lift some times. To make him self apear taller then 5'11 I read he wear 2 or 3 inch shoe lifts if he wor 2 inch lift he would be close to 6'1 with shoes on or if he wore 3 inch lifts he would be. Close to 6'2 with shoes on thanks
[Editor Rob: I think he has worn cuban heels and at times I'm sure many actors have dabbled in a wee 1/2 inch lift just for that 'solid' feeling.]
MarcusTheSwede said on 20/Jun/15
hijopotamus: agree with you to. Its so easy for folks to just google Brad Pitt heels or insoles or lifts in Google. Yeh the pic with Gwyneth also sure as heck show he is below this listing. Agree with you fully also in that.
gx79 said on 18/Jun/15
rob do you think he wears 3 inch lifts to make him go from 71 inch to 74inch
[Editor Rob: impossible really.]
hijopotamus said on 17/Jun/15
Heylo, did you like the pic with Clooney? That angle should favour Pitt, right? Hhmmm....just google "Pitt wears lifts" and check the photos.
Marcus I fully agree with you. Why so many discussions when we have the best proof that is the pic with Gwyneth?? Is she 5'9"? They say a bit under.
Heylo said on 16/Jun/15
hijopotamus, that site sucked. The author is obviously retarded. There are just as many photos (with better angles) that show the opposite, that Brad is like 6ft. Not to say that he is 6ft, just saying that this guy is really wrong. And no, Tom Cruise is not 168 like he claims either.

That Ocean's 12 photo with Clooney.. I can't believe how people are so blind, it's an obvious illusion. Brad looks 5'9 next to Clooney but fact is that they don't even stand next to each other, that's the illusion, he is walking several feet away from him, Clooney has a big advantage. Brad is the same height as Clooney or taller sometimes in these movies + all the appearances in reality.

I could still see a strong 5'10 on Brad though.
MarcusTheSwede said on 16/Jun/15
Listen to AZ below she also seen BP irl and claim shorter Brad is at best 176-177 without massive heels and yes you can just Google them and see for yourself. He is a also a liftwearer several pictures also easy googled you see his heel pushing out making a line thats also visible on the outside of shoe due to the height increasing insole. Brad is a great great guy Love him to death and nothing could change my mind he is the absolute favourite Actor and person off camera general sneaking nice celeb I really really admire but his height do need to be changed lower 176-177 max next to Jennifer or Gwyneth well tons of pictures. Also he has a inside joke with George Clooney about his height , George often jokes about Brads height saying "Oh you are so tall Brad" while he really knows he really is about 176-177 without added height and heels and soles. Love Brad so thats not the issue but his height needs to be lower Thanks
Vlad said on 15/Jun/15
Rob,how come in the picture with Claudia where she wears probably 0,2 inch shoes max Brad seems 6'1?
[Editor Rob: maybe just footwear and extra half inch or so better posture?]

Looks 5'11.5 with Jonah Hill.

And all pics are irrelevant unless we see Pitt barefoot.
Its very funny Pitt did not remove his footwear that one time with Damon and Clooney both barefoot. I wonder why a 5'11" guy wears tricky shoes ALL THE TIME.
Is he 6'2" with his shoes on??
TJE said on 11/Jun/15
Brad's looking a good 13-14 cm on 168-169 Jonah Hill. Even if Brad somehow snuck 1 inch lifts into his socks, which I doubt, he would still be close enough to 5'11.

184.3cm (Night) said on 11/Jun/15
He looks 4 inches taller maybe a little more there. So that makes me think my 5'10"5 (179) guess is still right. Would like to see him next to Matthew McConaughey bet there would be a whisker in it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jun/15
I think he holds 180cm solid for most of the day. For me he's one of the legit 5ft11 actors.

The chance of him being as low as 5'9 is zero.

A solid 5 inches taller than Jonah Hill, just as he would be in the pic above if Brad stood straight.

Please don't anybody say Brad has a 1 inch heel and a 1 inch lift inside his sneakers LOL. Or that Jonah Hill is less than 5'6
Click Here , from these évidence even 5'10.5 is too low
hijopotamus said on 10/Jun/15
Parker, thank you for that first pic. Anyone that cannot see those as tricky-lifty shoes is delusional.

Emil 182 cm said on 9/Jun/15
Anything less than 178 cm for Pitt is absurd. Looks 180-182 at premieres and his real height might very well be 179-180 cm
Dmeyer said on 9/Jun/15
Pitt has pulled off solid 5'11 Like 5'11.75-6ft shoes on Many occasion while in normal footwear with no room for lifts , Pitt is 5'10.75-11 , he looks more oftenly 5'11.25-6ft because of footwear more often than he looks under 5'11 , people accept the fact than is good looking rich and a lidl above average Height , and a good person
hijopotamus said on 8/Jun/15
SK, a 5'8" guy is never gonna be 6' with lifts? Ok but a 5'9" guy is going to reach the 5'11" mark easily if wearing tgick 1 inch heel shoes (not huge heels at all) plus a 1 inch lift and most people would not notice.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Jun/15

He really looks tall in these pictures and also really quite broad in frame too. He could pass for 6 ft -6 ft 1 here. I'm not seeing big lifts either.
SK said on 7/Jun/15
I don't know why there's so much controversy surrounding Brad Pitt's height. He's never been known for his height. He's never been particularly tall or short. He's always looked around 5'10 or so--not over 6', but not as short as 5'8" as some people are claiming. I think just expect him (and celebrities in general) to be bigger in person and are disappointed when he's not at least 6' tall. Sure, footwear can make a bit of a difference, but no shoes or lifts are going to make a 5'8" guy look 6' tall. Otherwise, every shorter guy in Hollywood would wear them and they would all look 6' tall. Frankly, all shoes add at least a little bit of height. Even sneakers can add height.

@hijopotamus Paltrow is a strong 5ft9 struggling with 5ft10 and Pitt is an inch taller. If anything, upgrade Paltrow and downgrade Pitt.

@Az: I saw on Jennifer Aniston's page. Seriously, he's a little over 5'8" in your opinion. Is Jennifer really only 5'2"??. I think the shortest Jennifer Aniston has ever looked was probably 5'4". In many episodes of Friends she appeared taller than Courteney Cox who's listed at 5'5".

Plus, there's no way on this earth a 5'8" guy can look 6'1". NO WAY!! I'm guessing you're a troll or something. I doubt you actually met Jennifer Aniston or Brad Pitt.

[Editor Rob: an actor is in the business of lying - the whole nature of acting is pretending to be someone else. It's a very vain industry and image is vitally important, both for the actors and the studios. I'm sure part of that is some actors wanting to look taller, so at times in movies they will be made to appear taller, and at events will wear hidden lifts to give off just that extra bit of height.
I still think it is a small minority though who go down the route of lifts. Compared to say hairpieces/systems/transplants/weaves, I think hairwork outdoes lift wearing in hollywood! And dental work (veneers/whitening etc), cosmetic work (PS/botox) is used by a majority.]


I agree more actors/celebs probably don't use them than the number that do. Although I'd wager that actors do probably use lifts at a much higher rate than average people.
[Editor Rob: I actually thought big G at one point had cosmetic surgery...either that or he put on a lot of extra weight around his head and jaw because his ears used to be bigger in his late teens and 20's than his late 30's and 40's. Maybe they shrank!]
