How tall is Brad Pitt ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Brad Pitt height: 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:) "He's tall. He's like 6-1. It's irritating".

I like the way you argue Arch Stanton, not like some here who magically seem to have a clear picture of "the truth" of his height, it's more about trying to see the whole picture and being fairly objective. I agree with everything you write. I also see him fluctuate between about 5'10-6ft depending on movie. I don't think he could ever be smaller than 177.5 and even that is pushing it a bit, not taller than 181.

People are in general kind of bad at judging height irl in my opinion. I'm 5'10 myself but people really think I'm closer to 6ft sometimes. I've read a lot of articles and interviews about Brad (not only for researching about his height but because I'm a fan of his!) and there are claims from people that he would be "surprisingly tall" at about 6ft. Morgan Freeman said the same thing about him.
Then you have some saying that he was "surprisingly short" so you don't really know what to believe, nothing is for sure at this time.
Andrea says on 4/Mar/15
Arch, do you know that height is that thing that you measure from the ground from the top of your head? It seems a lot of your "guesses" are based only on proportions! I think Brad must be pretty close to this listing and he actually can pull off looking taller than 5'11 many times... I doubt he's grown in his 20s from 5'9 to 5'11!
Almost 5 10 says on 4/Mar/15
He looked about 2 inches taller than William Hague, who isn't below 177 cm. He does indeed give off a 182 cm impression, more often than 5' 10" range.
Almost 5 10 says on 4/Mar/15
Rob, is 5' 10" possible? Or "no chance"?
[Editor Rob: I personally can't see him measuring that low.]
Almost 5 10 says on 4/Mar/15
I think he's gotta be close to 5' 11". He generally looks it. But it just goes to show how peoples heights can appear to vary, doesn't it. I mean, if you go on Beckham's page there are some photos that make him appear shorter. I even questioned his height recently. Yet, he's about as genuine a 5' 11" guy as you can get!
Almost 5 10 says on 4/Mar/15
Thanks for that Arch, very descriptive!
Hypado says on 3/Mar/15
With a perfect posture,

Brad Pitt looks 181 cm , 5ft 11.5in
maganeo2 says on 3/Mar/15
that is so ridiculous. Lying about 1 inch. I'll give you an inch but lying 2-3 inches about your height is pathological. Whether Cruise or Pitt.
Arch Stanton says on 3/Mar/15
On the trailer check out his frame sitting down at 1:35, see what I mean, his build there looks more like 5'9" and he was at least mid 20s when they shot that film!
pauly e says on 2/Mar/15
i think (generally speaking) most people round their height up. alot of guys give their height with shoes on, and the ones who know what it is barefoot will usually round up still (ie 5'9.5 becomes 5'10, which i don't think is a big deal really). since he wrote his height as 5'11, i would say the chances of him actually being that height are very slim.

he does look close to Ricky Schroeder in those clips Arch Stanton posted....
CDS says on 2/Mar/15
I don't think BP ever looked anything less than 5'10" on screen.

"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."

This above just about says it all. I took an acting class in college where the professor had us all set up our resumes. My proff took time to explain to us about the height we put down, saying it was very important to be extremely accurate since directors are sizing you up with others when deciding who to cast. He said that he was once thrown off stage for putting 6'2" on his resume, when he was actually only 6'1" (my proff actually looked close to 6'2" to me).

Later on, of course, once fame is achieved, you can claim what you like. But that early 5'10" claim tells you everything. Then a little later on, Pitt claimed 5'11" after he started drawing some teeny bopper fame, and it went from there... He now looks 6'1" on screen.
high and low says on 2/Mar/15
5'9 barefoot + 1 inch heel + half inch lift (or vice versa) = 5'10 and a half..........Conclusion he looks 5'11 to you.

Also don't compare his height with other celebs because they aren't reliable.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Mar/15
Thewlis's agency list him at 6'2 though, which would make Pitt about 5'10, Thewlis looks too darn lanky to only be 6'2", worst I think you could really argue is 6'2.5.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Mar/15
Here's the trailer for Across the Tracks here Check out 0:31 and 1:14 for instance. Click Here Running at 1:14 he looks 5'9 range. But although he looks about the same height at 0:31 as 5'9 range Rick Schroeder if you watch the film I think Pitt had an easy inch on him. See 3:49 Click Here I think stood straight he's easily look an inch taller than Schroder so had to have been near 5'11. His proportions for sure though seem markedly smaller, but he might have been if Schroeder is really 5'9.5". I think I also once read that on set of Thelma and Louise somebody described Pitt as 5 ft 9 and tried to make him look taller with Geena Davis. I wouldn't always believe what you read in magazines though. In recent years if anything he looks more 182 at times! And I'm not sure he is wearing these big lifts which some people claim he is. Admittedly Pitt was one of the few guys before the internet days I really had little idea his actual height. Difficult to really get an accurate listing for. At times he could seem anything from 5'9-6'1! I do think 5'9 is BS for him though, he was about 4 inches shorter than David Thewlis in Seven Years in Tibet and he'd hardly wear lifts to climb mountains now would he. Thewlis looks a proper 6'3" guy to me.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Mar/15
There's also a film I saw in a Malaysian hotel room Dark Side of the Sun in about 1998 I think called Dark Side of the Sun. It was released in 1997 but was actually shot in 1987 or 1988 I think. He was looking sub 5'11 in that one too, quite an atmospheric and poignant film that one.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Mar/15
Almost 5 10 says on 28/Feb/15
Hey Arch! Did Pitt really only look 5' 9" range in the early '90s? Who did he appear that next to? I'm not that familiar with his early films. He was 26/27 back then but looked a bit younger.

Well, he looked very young for a guy supposed to be in late 20s ad small frame and look which I suppose could make him seem just 5'9 range at the time. Watch Thelma and Louise and Across the Tracks especially. Difficult to see even near 5'11 in those. He did have about an inch on Rick Schroeder though who Rob has at 5'9.5 I think. He was certainly looking nothing over 5'10 with Duchovny in Kalifornia. He suddenly started looking a lot more striking, taller and older around 1993 or 1994 I think. I suspect that some of his early 90s films were actually shot in the late 80s, accounting for why he looked so young, but even in 1989 he'd have been 25 or 26 and only looked 17 or 18!
truthseeker says on 1/Mar/15
google brad pitt and david bowie picture then google david bowie, edward norton, dermot mulroney all in one picture . pitt is same height as david bowie, not ed norton
Dan says on 1/Mar/15
They wear lifts because when you're as easily accessible and as easily recognizable to the public as they are, you wanna have some stature. You need to have some stature. You need to be the same height or taller to average people. You don't need to be tall to tall people because the tall are gifted but you can't be shorter than the average. It just adds to the mystique. We can't understand because we can't understand that mindset. I'd probably do it too. If you're way too short you might as well accept it but when you're in that sweet spot of being not too short but not too taller than average, you add a couple of inches to be above average
Dan says on 1/Mar/15
What's funny is that every time I read comments about Brad's walk everyone always says what a great, cool, sexy, badass walk he has.. You choose the adverb. Everyone always commenting on his walk. And he likes to wear boots a lot, so considering that boots give you a better heel to toe walk and flat sneakers give people a poor regular stumbly walk, can it be he wears his guidi boots martin margiela boots wesco boots and cole haan boots so he can just look cooler and walk cooler?? For the past couple of years like three or more all he wears are guidi Italian boots in different styles like the back zip front zip and short laceups. Right now he's wearing the guidi back zip with the added vibram 1136 sole. Those boots give about 2.5" max and that's considering he can pack something into such a tight fitting and snug horse leather boot

I saw that Brad is in his 50's now. Is it possible he could've lost some height Rob?
Y says on 27/Feb/15
why do these A-list stars wear lifts? Cruise, Downey Jr, Damon Penn and Pitt are all reported as wearing lifts. Even if they are an inch or 2 shorter or as Pitt himself (dead on average). Makes no sense.
Arch Stanton says on 27/Feb/15
You guys are so slow, of course it is a tongue in cheek comment, it's Clooney. Rob even makes it clear with "even his good friend George Clooney was wise to his footwear".

Brad Pitt for me

In the 90s

5ft 11.25in , 181 cm

Now, in 2015

5ft 10.75 , 180 cm

LOL, if anything you could argue 5'9" range in early 90s and today 181cm. The man looks noticeably TALLER than he did in the early 90s, not shorter!
Dmeyer says on 26/Feb/15
Rob do you think pitt could béat jon berthal by a 0.25in if in equal footwear , ????
[Editor Rob: too tough to say just how much between them, I think they'd certainly be within about a 0.25 of each other though, from all I saw they do look quite near.]
CDS says on 26/Feb/15
@Justanotherguy; I never actually considered Clooney's claim to be an inside joke until I read someone on here's comments- then it made sense with George being a known practical joker. One thing that did make me wonder- okay, all of us are well aware that Pitt wears big lifts...so wouldn't it make sense that his co-stars/friends have caught on too-?? Just like the pic of him with his buddy Dermot Mulroney & then-wife Catherine Keener out in public together; he looks barely taller than Mulroney. Then switch to another photo where he totally dwarfs him! You'd think Dermot is wondering WTF???- but, he probably is onto his friend- like Clooney is- hence the "he's like 6'1"- it's irritating" comment. Clooney of course has no height issue like Pitt obviously does since he is probably a hair taller than his friend, and he knows it... And I'm not bashing Brad Pitt- he's a good actor and humanitarian- he just has this insecurity in this particular physical thing about himself. Not a short guy- like I said before, and most in this thread continue to say- 5'10"-5'11"- just sub-par of that golden 6 foot+ height that is so-cherished in that superficial Hollywood culture, which of course is reflective of the rest of society...
hi says on 26/Feb/15
Yeah I believe Pitt is 5'11. But why also is a 5'11 man reported to be wearing lifts on multiple occasions?
hi says on 26/Feb/15
Great point. Because no way that anyone would believe Pitt was 6'1
cole says on 25/Feb/15
Most good evidence points to him being near enough 5'11. He can look over that mark when in questionable footwear, and equal to a legit 5'11 guy Rob has met in person, Jon Bernthal, when wearing regular dress shoes. This has been pointed out countless times, but every single day this page gets filled up with the same old crappy posts about him being 5'9 or under 5'10.

What certain people don't seem to get, is that his footwear never gives him 3 inches of height, and sadly that is what they are basing their guesses on - Pitt always wearing women's heels basically. Is that the logic even when you can see that he's wearing regular footwear? Wish Rob would do something to stop the same people from making the same ****ty comments over and over again. But I guess that's what happens when Pitt's name is on the popular pages - people with no perception of height or interest in making an educated guess, comes here every day to just write whatever. Same goes for Bieber and all the other teenage idols. I guess you can't ban people for writing their opinion, but when it's the same post over and over again, you just can't take it seriously, last but not least it ruins the page for the people who actually wants to discuss good evidence with reason.
Justanotherguy says on 25/Feb/15
Has anyone ever considered that George Clooney's claim on Brad Pitt was purposefully exaggerated? Almost like a inside joke that he knows Pitt wears lifts. Thats just how I always perceived it.
pauly e says on 25/Feb/15
I feel like everyone here sees what they want to see. the guys who want to see him at 5'9 always argue lifts. they guys who want to see him at 5'11 always argue that he is at a footwear disadvantage (as if that has ever happened since 1994)....I still think most eveidence points to him being 5'10.25 - 5'10.75.

Hello.look at picture number 2 with Angelina Jolie(comment of 21/feb/2015 of Heylo):on this site Angelina is 5"6.5(169cms).With their postures and their shoes,Brad seem shorter than 5'10" no?(they seem nice people).
Heylo says on 21/Feb/15
And for those who doesn't buy the argument of his relatively short legs, here's some proof:

Click Here
Click Here
Click Here


However, this is quite common among Caucasian males. David Beckham & Jared Leto for example also has these slightly slightly shorter legs. Some studies mean that this trait with a big torso is found most attractive by women even though our beauty culture has favoured long legs over the years.

I think this build is an advantage in Hollywood if you want to wear lifts without looking suspicious.

It must be noted too that the legs aren't that short so that people actually think about it if you're not analysing like a nerd (like I sarcastically do), it's so easy to just tuck your shirt in your pants to look more proportional in clothes and to fool everyone else.
21 says on 20/Feb/15
Pitt is no shorter than 5'10 but no taller than 5'11.

It's just incredible that he wears 2-3 inch lifts like Cruise who is 5'7.

See women believe these guys are all 6'1 and 6'2, but no way.
Voiceless Dental Fricative says on 20/Feb/15
Pitt is 5'10 and change.

Packs wedge and forces his posture to look 6'

He didn't look 5'11 in those barefoot photos with Paltrow. Actually he barely looked taller than her.
CDS says on 20/Feb/15
Concerning that photo with Pitt, Bacon and Clooney; kinda goes along with what I suspected. Yes, Pitt is not always wearing lifts, and he may not be in that pic. I suspect that Bacon's 5'10" height is in shoes (maybe 5'9 1/2" barefoot- so 5'10 1/2" in shoes- something like that), but more importantly, I will bet you that Clooney is actually a hair taller than Pitt, going against what we've been led to believe, like in the "Ocean's 11" series. This is not the first pic I've seen Clooney looking taller.
182 at lunchtime says on 20/Feb/15
@Rend I agree with your point about the short legs and that it is why lifts work for Brad.
I'm the same, except I'm about about an inch taller at 5'11.5. My torso is that of a 6'2 guy, and legs of a 5'9 guy! When I wear 1.8 boots, not only does it make me look legit 6'0.25-6'0.5 person, but my physique actually looks more balanced too.

Only problem is I can't wear big boots all the time, due to comfort. Also, if ppl see the big soles, it would seem weird on a normal day. Though if they don't see my soles, they would assume that is my real height (a weak 6'1). Btw, when I wore these shoes on a night out, I alway got noticeably more looks and female attention (1 inch extra plus a balancing of the physique to boot). Sometimes I wear small lift that gives me about 1/3 of inch extra. May sound crazy for someone of my height, but as I say it also balances my physique rather than unbalancing it.
pauly e says on 20/Feb/15
he looks 5'10ish in that picture 184.3 posted next to Kevin Bacon and George Clooney.

I seem to remember him also looking 5'10 in Kalifornia compared to David Duchovney who I believe is 6'0.
Dan says on 19/Feb/15
Brad pitt never wears inconspicuous weird shoes. He is always wearing designer boots and vans sneakers. I have always identified the boots he wears
Andrea says on 19/Feb/15
How can he look so tall in the photoshoot with Orlando Bloom and Eric Bana? If Orlando is really 179-180, he can look 6'1 range there!
CDS says on 19/Feb/15
Looking through this thread, on the set of "Kalifornia" in 1992 would've been prior to the lift-wearing. I'll bet the colleague in question is 5'10" in shoes (maybe 5'10 1/2"). Come to think of it, HAD Pitt been wearing lifts, the colleague probably would've reported him at like 3 inches taller-?? LOL In that movie BTW, his height is listed at 5'11", and his legs look particularly stubby, suggesting he's not wearing lifts. Also, he looks about the same height (or close to it) as 5'9" Michelle Forbes, in multiple shots. There is one shot even that his co-star Juliette Lewis (in heels) looks almost as tall as him. I wouldn't put her at any more than 5'6" flat.

what do you mean "unprofessional" ways? A film will not flop because the leading actor is 3 inches shorter than his reported height.
hm says on 18/Feb/15
One can lie about their height by 1 inch maybe 2. But lying about your height 3-4 inches is quite Insecure
Christian says on 18/Feb/15
My collegue met him in June 1992 during the shooting of Kalifornia. Brad had normal sneakers on at that occasion.
Heylo says on 18/Feb/15
That photo from troy was from a photoshoot, the photo lens make it look like Brad have pretty long legs but this is not the case. His legs are on the shorter side but his legs are thin too. He has the perfect build for lifts like someone here stated.

There are several photos where you can see how his legs are "kind of" on the short side. His proportions look perfect with a small lift in his shoes. But I still think he is around 178-180.
Dan says on 17/Feb/15
His legs are short from knee to ankle but they are long from groin to knee. Also, his calves are well formed and not skinny so they will give off the impression of being shorter. He is definitely no shorter than 5-10 and the least he can be is a very strong 5-9.5
CDS says on 17/Feb/15
I think averagejoe makes an excellent point about short guys claiming 5'10", and hence American culture has lost sight of what a real 5'10" guy looks like. Plus the fact that legit 5'10" guys generally claim 6'. There was a Premiere or MovieLine magazine issue that came out in the '90s going over pretty much what this site covers- what all the big stars claim they are verses a "best guess" (had Pitt at 5'10" BTW). The article pointed out that 5'10" was the popular height for actors who were probably 5'8" at best, and knew they'd be laughed at in public if they claimed 6 feet.
CDS says on 17/Feb/15
@Christian: Pitt could easily have had lifts on EVERY time your editor co-worker met him. I talked to someone who claimed to be 6'1" in bare feet, and met him in person. He said Pitt was taller than he was; claimed he had "ugly black shoes on". These are exactly the kind of inconspicuous-looking especially-made shoes lift-wearers use, and c'mon- does ANY-one really think Pitt is over 6'1" bare feet?? But with his shoes, he pulls it off. Like someone said in this thread, he's the "master". LOL
Rend says on 17/Feb/15
Pitt started using lifts after 1996 and his first movie with lifts was sleepers.
In Sleepers, he probably used 7cm (2.75 inch) lifted formal shoes and with that 1930's suit he was a real 185 - 188 giant with WIDE SHOULDERS!
He has upper body of a 184-185 guy and lifts are suitable and believable for him.
I must repeat that he doesn't use lifts in "Unprofessional" ways like Cruise and Downey jr.
Christian says on 17/Feb/15
Where I work now at a production company one of the editors have met Brad several times. The editor is 5'10 and said Brad was a little taller than him. He would put Brad at 5'11-5'11.5.

Brad Pitt can not be shorter than 5'10 but no taller than 5'11.

He's average height but he is TALL to women. But of course many would assume him to be 6'1 so they'd be disapointed. Just like Tom Cruise is short to men but still slightly tall to the average woman.

Actually my sister thought Pitt was shortish...
b-mint1994 says on 16/Feb/15
I think at worst he's 5'10".
haHUH says on 16/Feb/15
So does Pitt wear 2-3 inch lifts like Tom Cruise? Pitt is probably 5'10 1/2 though.

Clooney claimed Pitt was 6'1
Rend says on 16/Feb/15
He is not under 178-179 Firmly.
But in Formal celebrations and premieres, he use 5 to 7 cm Elevator shoes that improves his height to 183-186.
He looks different time to time. He is well-knowed how to hide his lifts.
with lifts, He is like a 182 cm guy in normal shoes.
He don't use lifts "unprofessional" like Robert Downey jr.
Good passage ha? what is your idea Rob?
Jeff says on 16/Feb/15
If Pitt and Dicaprio were to meet today, Pitt would look like the taller guy. The shortest he looks nowadays is 181cm. The tallest he's looked was around the release of Troy where he looked like a solid 184cm next to 179 Orlando Bloom and 191 Eric Bana. He seems to have become a height-aware guy during the last 15 years
averagejoe says on 16/Feb/15
i'm not sure where the short legs thing comes from...
Click Here
lifts or not those thighs look perfectly normal for a 5'10-11 range guy.

I also agree with adl's point about women's perception of height. At over 5'11 (with shoes/lifts, whatever you use to get there) most women will think you're 6ft by default.

Honestly I think the problem comes from the vast majority of short guys claiming 5'10. It's like every guy I meet who's 5'6-5'9 claims 5'10. That makes 5'10 seem not so tall... like the 2 inches between 5'10 and 6ft is more like a foot! those 2 inches are still 2 inches!

Someone like Brad Pitt is at the very least waking up close to 5'11. Hence the claim. I really doubt that he's been concealing 1.5-2 inches of height for his entire acting career.
CDS says on 16/Feb/15
Okay, LOTS of discussion about Pitt's height, and here is my overall theory. He is about 5'11"-ish in standard inch-think soled shoes, but is obviously a regular lift wearer, which bumps him up into the 6 foot-plus range a lot of the time. That German motorcycle license application which had an electronic device measure him around 5'9" is like when you get measured barefoot free-standing, as opposed to up against a wall. That would mean his (probably end of the day) height is probably 5'9 1/2"-ish barefoot- 5'10 1/2"-ish in shoes (round up to 5'11"). This makes perfect sense why he put 5'11" on that teen magazine profile early in his career since it's common to state your height in shoes and round up. At the same time, this makes sense why he looked not as tall earlier in his career, then had a height boost circa-late '90s when he either began his lift-wearing or increased/improved them-?? I've seen him looking as short as barely taller than 5'8" Christophe Waltz (his co-star in "Inglorious ****s") to looking same height as Clint Eastwood, who has probably lost some height, but is fair to say is probably still at least a tad over 6 feet-?? Pitt has that build with the long upper torso and short legs, and the lifts give him the appearance of having being more proportioned- THAT's why they work so well for him.
Joe says on 16/Feb/15
A lot of 5'11 range guys can pull off 6'1" very easily. It's easy to add 2 virtual inches of height by simply maintaining a good posture, wearing a nice pair of shoes and keeping a nice haircut. I've seen that and experienced it. Majority of the people in this world don't have a good idea about someone's height. When I was in high school, I used to claim 5'10 and people even believed it without even giving a second thought. I remember measuring myself in those days, I'd straight facing the wall, with a ruler and a pencil, measuring down from the floor to pencil mark it'd barely nudging into the 68 inch range.

I'm a hair above 6 feet now and I easily get away with 6'1", some even say I'm a bit taller than that.
adl says on 15/Feb/15
Brad Pitt can not be shorter than 5'10 but no taller than 5'11.

He's average height but he is TALL to women. But of course many would assume him to be 6'1 so they'd be disapointed. Just like Tom Cruise is short to men but still slightly tall to the average woman.

If Brad Pitt is 5'9'', I feel sorry Jonah Hill in the picture above Lol

When lifted on his gargantuous fat wallet, Jonah Hill can easily eat pie and drink beer off all of our heads. Dont feel sorry for him one bit, would gladly trade my 177+change cm for his "5ft and a squashed forrest strawberry", as long as it came in set with his big fat bank account. Horrible actor though.
Almost 5 10 says on 15/Feb/15
He looks 5' 11" to me. I'd be surprised if he measured above it though.
averagejoe says on 15/Feb/15
if he wakes up at 5'11... then he probably measured very close to 5'11 and of course rounded up (in my experience nobody that tall gives a half inch answer as their height... they just round up.). If he wears any pair of shoes... it gets him over 5'11, which isn't much of a difference from 6ft. If he wears dress shoes he's very very close to 6ft, that's why he looks so tall. He is. If he wears lifts to special occasions etc then he can look over 6ft.

I think people just don't like the idea that brad pitt is good looking and quite tall. Pitt has never looked average in height.

was there ever a film where Pitt was not wearing lifts? He definitely was wearing them for TROY.

I've never seen an 5'11 guy wear lifts so it's really interesting.

Do you think he'd have worn lifts shooting the mountain scenes in Seven Years in Tibet shot in Argentina? Could you imagine climbing a rock face or treading through snow and being height conscious? Obviously he hasn't worn lifts in every film as he looked shorter in the early 90s!
[Editor Rob: with greater fame comes greater lifts...but maybe not really in Brad's case. That applies mainly to Downey Jr. Pitt might be more subtle if he wears them.]

Rob évén taugh i think brad dosnt wear lifts i think in Movie he might wear 1inchers wich Still gives only 0.6-0.7in extra i tried Them also he might wear those in 3cm footwear , anyway he manages to look about 6ft so must be 5'11
[Editor Rob: also in some movies he might just be standing very well compared to other actors. He ups his posture to the limit, and maybe with camera angles can fool people into thinking he is taller.]
MarcusTheSwede says on 12/Feb/15
He is 176 all pictures over the years and he always always wear either inner sole height increasing sole or and shoes that are build up heel I wont repeat all pictures of Brad wearing it all because it has been posted here for years Already. No more proof is needed just look at him in any picture either Vibram soles or shoes covered by boot cut jeans to hide the elevation and for god sake just compare him to Clooney and Matt Damon. Brad is 176-177 without shoes the rest is elevators thick shoes High heels and Hollywood magic. And ive been around here longer Then most of you that claim he is taller but really he isnt. Thanks for great website. Downgrade.

I agree. It's hard to be a leading man in romance dramas or action roles if you're under 5'6 and over 6'3. If you're 6'5 you are too TALL. You dwarf everyone else. You never ever see Tom Cruise in a film with Liam Neeson. It just wouldn't happen especially when Neeson was an unknown in the 80's and early 90's when Cruise was a superstar.

Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" says on 10/Feb/15
I would say that tall for Hollywood is past 5'11", with it being difficult to obtain roles in films if you are past 185 CM (with you being really limited to where the role would have to be based off of the height if you are past 196 CM), with short being under 5'7" (and you would have issues obtaining roles if you are under 160 issues, with it being almost impossible if you are under 150 CM).

@Sigmon If I were to guess:

George Clooney-5'10.5"
Matt Damon-5'9.75"
Don Cheadle-5'7.5" (he's in between 5'7" and 5'8" in person)
Brad Pitt-5'11"

Brad looked 2 inches taller than 179cm James Franco this year on Sundance. Search google for photos. Even though he might have used small lifts, I think we may underestimate his height. He might be very close to 5'11 or even a flat 5'11.
Jeff says on 9/Feb/15
Rob, do you think he wore lifts in Inglorious Basters and Moneyball? He looked huge in those...
[Editor Rob: it's possible slipping a wee half incher just to push him comfortably looking over 5ft 11.]

so what's the height on Chadle, Damon, Clooney and Pitt? For me they are 5'8, 5'9, 5'10 and 5'11. But usually Damon or Pitt are wearing lifts so hard to know
sigmon says on 9/Feb/15
all actors lie about their height for 1 reason or another. 6'2 Hugh Jackman felt he might have been too tall for Hollywood when he started off.


Pitt is no taller than 5'11, but no shorter than 5'10

In 90's he did look 4" shorter than Morgan Freeman, who i guess was in the 6'2.5" at Times!

Do you think any legit 5'11 man would put down 5'10 like Pitt did unless they honestly didn't know or hadn't measured their height before? More chance he'd put down 6ft than 5'10 if he was really 5'11. I know we can only take someone else's word for it but still fishy. How old was Pitt when he had his audition anyway?
Look says on 8/Feb/15
He's 179cm aka 5'10 and a half.

I honestly couldn't understand if he was 181cm why he would wear lifts.

Bra Pitt is not 180cm please downgrade this. He always always Wests thick boots with Vibram soles that are over 3.8 cm High he is st best at best 176cm without giant boots and elevator shoes and soles.
alex says on 4/Feb/15
Here in Italy 180 cm is the starting point to say a man is tall. A 180 cm. guy is a little taller than average but he doesn't look tall. I think pitt is around that height, maybe 181, he is clearly not short, not even average..he is moderately tall.
Sam says on 4/Feb/15
Its possible he's 179cm but I wouldn't go any higher than that, more like 178cm - 179cm. Closer to 5'10 than 5'11. I'm just saying because proportions don't tell everything but they do matter. If you take two individual photos of a 6'4 man and a 5'4 man, you would be able to tell which one is which just by looking at their body proportions alone. Obviously just an inch is less extreme in Pitt's case, but you get the idea.

clooney said that about him being 6 foot 1 because clooney knows he's

@Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2. He looks 182 there next to 187 Carrey. His posture isn't even that great. We don't know about the footwear though. Anyhow, it excludes anything under 5'11 for Pitt.
Misha says on 31/Jan/15
Comparing the Pitt photos with Jonah Hill and Claudia Schiffer does not tell us
how tall Brad Pitt is, but it proves that he wears lifts, assuming that Schiffer
is really near 5'11" and Hill is somewhere around 5'6". It proves it because if
Schiffer replaced Pitt in the center photo, she would have to be four, even five inches taller than Hill by the very definition of their respective heights. But this is exactly the difference we see between Hill and Pitt. Yet in her shot with Pitt he is two inches taller than her (the black hair net he's
wearing somewhat obscures the top of his head because the background is the
same color). He could of course be wearing lifts in both photos, but he is at
least an inch-and-a-half taller than Schiffer in their photo. So either Schiffer
is really only 5'8.5" or Pitt artfully adjusts his height to fit the setting he knows he'll be in.

In closing, the only way to nail down Brad Pitt's height is to catch him at a
pool party with no shoes on. Likely he's had someone craft him an artificial set of bare feet made out of latex that slip over his real ones and give him an extra inch.
184.3cm says on 30/Jan/15
@Shawn

A large range of shoes i agree but in the summer im even barefoot on the promenade as i go from the restaurant > beach > sea. I just cant imagine living like that as you must live with alot of stress, not to mention 24/7 wondering about your height next to others.
Special occasions i do get it (Wedding, Meeting, Premier of a movie) but dragging it into your personal everyday life just sounds like an obsession and an unhealthy one at that. Stress is never good.
Brad is certainly this listing at some point of the day but i think maybe early morning and then he falls down to 5'10.5-.75 in the late afternoon/evening.
high and low says on 29/Jan/15
Pitt wearing heels/lifts and a big wooly hat (adds height for those tricky premiers) next to 5'10 (real height) Claudia Schiffer who's in a pair of leather soled flats.

5'11 guys wearing lifts, next thing you know 6'2 guys will be wearing 2 inch lifts
pauly e says on 28/Jan/15
you can't underestimate posture making one look taller as well. Pitt always stands straight up. that can add the illusion of being taller when standing next to someone with relaxed posture.
Shawn says on 27/Jan/15
184.3cm, in regards to your question about what these guys do in the summer, have a look at the Don's Elevator website. They offer lifts for almost any type of shoe now, not just dress shoes. Loafers, slip ons, running shoes, etc. And that's for us everyday folk. A multi-millionaire movie star like Pitt could get any sort of shoe custom-tailored no doubt. Flip flops might be a little difficult, but anything else is fair game.
Dmeyer says on 27/Jan/15
With notmal lifts you can manage to look 3-4cm than you are so Many agree he can look 6ft so 5'10.5 minimum the kind he wears give only 1-2cm boost no more
HI says on 26/Jan/15
Well it's not as if Pitt stars in many films opposite 6'2 guys. Most films he stars are opposite guys his own height. So why wear 2-3 inch lifts to feel that much taller?
184.3cm says on 26/Jan/15
I get that he might wear lifts if starring opposite a taller guy, looks better on camera. However seems he got the taste for it and carried it over to his personal life. Ive always wondered what these guys do in the summer? Its 40 degrees mostly here (104 for the americans here) and i usally have flip flops on all the time. I have him still 5'10.5-5'10.75. Probably 5'11.25 out of bed.
TJE says on 25/Jan/15
He looks 5'11 in the first two pics, but the pic with Claudia is worrying.
ARGH says on 25/Jan/15
You make a great point. Just bizarre. Brad probably wears 2 inch lifts. But just lunacy. I can understand a 5'7 guy like Cruise or Hoffman who is 5'5 but 5'11 and wearing lifts, when does the insanity end?

I could see brad at 60s being 5'10.25-10.5 and wearing lifts to pull off near 6'0
Heylo says on 25/Jan/15
@ARGH. Cause 5'11 isn't enough in shallow Hollywood, 6ft & over has been deemed the perfect ideal height since the 50s (when the average height was lower than today). Talk about the pressure it puts in young males all around the western world since we are so influenced by Hollywood & american culture overall.

Brad dosnt wear lifts if he does it is simply thick boots 1.4-1.7in type or maybe 0.5in lift in a dress shoes if so , maybe that is the answer whi would a 5'11 wear lifts , he dosnt , i am 5'11.5ish if o was an actor playing oposite 6'2-3in Guy Like affleck freeman i Will wear lifts

Hello,read my comment of the january 21,2015.There's a picture in Rob's site
( Claudia schiffer's height)with Luke Perry(comment/12jan/2013).Claudia schiffer 1.80?i doubt.
pauly e says on 22/Jan/15
you are right Jed.

from my experience, most guys who claim 6'1 are 5'11-ish...and i'm not even talking 5'11.75, more like a flat 5'11, 5'11.25.

i think what happens is alot of guys go with their "shoes on height" and then round up. so you get a guy who is 5'11.25, then with shoes on is 6'0.5 and then just rounds up to 6'1.
Arch Stanton says on 22/Jan/15
I think he;s the type who will often wear lifts to events like that with a one inch lift, something which people won't notice but which will boost him up to 6ft. You wouldn't catch him wearing munsters.
Arch Stanton says on 22/Jan/15
Rob do you think he's wearing lifts here? You can see a suspicious outline of like a wedge above the normal sole of the shoe Click Here
[Editor Rob: I don't know, there is room in these shoes for a lift.]
Jed says on 21/Jan/15
The whole 6'1 thing is down to journalists reaching for a go to height for moderately tall. He's probably 5'11 and can maybe look 6' in certain footwear, which is definitely taller than the public perception of what 5'11 looks like. I'm a little over 6'1 and am taller than the vast majority of people, with a fairly large difference on a lot of them, although seeing guys a couple of inches taller isn't unusual. 6'4+ though seems very rare.

I've yet to meet a guy who claims to be 6'2 or under who's as tall as me. Most guys claiming 6'3 are about my height. I Think people are genuinely clueless.
Pierre says on 21/Jan/15
i think there are lifts in his boots in Claudia's pic because laces angle is very steep.Claudia's height is often listed at 1.80 m but on rob's site at Claudia Schiffer's height,there is a picture with Luke Perry(~1.78m?)and Claudia is shorter than Luke(~3/4 cms?).
pauly e says on 21/Jan/15
I agree Pierre.

I think he would measure a little shorter than claudia schiffer if they both stood up straight and were barefoot. i think 179.5 as dmeyer mentioned below might be a good guess for his afternoon height (assuming there are no lifts in his boots in that pic).
Pierre says on 21/Jan/15
on rob's picture number three with Claudia schiffer i think he has advantageous shoes(look at laces angle in addition to heels)and Claudia's posture is not good (hyper relax).He looks sympathic guy
Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" says on 21/Jan/15
He's two inches shorter than Jim Carrey.
Panda says on 20/Jan/15
Hmm looking at pictures with him I would say that Pitt certainly looks 5'11". Look 5'11" with Jonah Hill and that Schiffer chick, assuming that he doesn't have lifts in his shoes (doesn't look like he does but idk for sure). Another piece of evidence is in Fight Cub when he and 6'0" Edward Norton meet for the second time and are standing outside the bar. Pitt is wearing boots and Norton dress shoes and Pitt looks an inch taller. However Norton had bad posture (about an inch slouch) so he looked 6'0" mening Pitt was 6'1" in his boots. However since they were boots that means that you can subtract 1.5-2 inches (knowing Pitt's tendency to stealthily make himself appear 1-2 inches taller his boots probably gave 2 inches, if not a bit more) so that means, IMO, Brad Pitt is certainly 5'11" (180 cm.). I would consider 5'10.5" to be his absolute worst but I'll agree with Rob on the 5'11" verdict.

179 180 and 181 are arguable , 179 Will mean he wears 1cm lifts often , 181 is unlikely since he didnt look 11cm taller than 170 cm waltz or 6cm on paltrow and he can look just 182cm in 4cm footwear Like 184cm , so 179.5-80.5 is on the money , he might get to 179 soon but on the stadio he should be in between 179.5 180.5
Jeff says on 19/Jan/15
Rob, what do you think is the general perception of Pitt's height? I thought he was around 185 before picking an interest in height. I was actually quite shocked when I saw he was "only" 5'11 on that site!
[Editor Rob: I don't think it helped that 8-12 years ago online and in some publications he was getting called 6ft and 6ft 1.]
Jeff says on 19/Jan/15
@jamie179cm. He is not in lifts on the Schiffer picture. If they would both be barefoot they would be really close in height. Forget the lifts thing. He can maybe put 1-1,5cm in those boots, not more. Check RDJ for real elevators. In movies, however, I can believe he's used a more outrageous kind of footwear in the last few years. He looks 7ft2 in Inglorious Basterds and Moneyball. He might have used some proper elevators in those.

@Heylo i give up with this page we not going to know pitts true height because his a lift wear and unless we can measure him barefoot or met him in barefeet we will never know
Heylo says on 19/Jan/15
@jamie179cm, stop implying such nonsense. What you look in height based on proportions or body frame have not very much to do with how tall they really are. It's just an illusion, that's why Models in general have to have medium to long legs because it's not only about being tall, it's about looking tall on photos.
Heylo says on 19/Jan/15
Why are you @Snatch saying that he has a small head? Are you serious? He has a big cranium, his whole facial structure is wide & quite "ideal" for being photogenic.Everything you write is pure bs, you are just basing your comment of comparisons of you & Brad. What you don't understand is that everything is very individual, big head, small head, short legs, long legs, it doesn't say **** about his height.

The reason why he might look taller than he is could be because he always had a natural skinny figure with a pencil neck (he said pencil neck of himself in the 90s in an interview lol).

But I start to seriously doubt that he's 177cm like I thought before, I think he must be at least 179cm. Honestly, he couldn't hide that he was 5'10 at all sorts of occasions. He towers over Edward Norton in lifts on recent photos. He is not 6ft in lifts, he is closer to 6'1. Believe it or not but Brad is not under 5'10½. He can't get to almost 6'1 in lifts without looking stupid.

178.5 is the lowest I can go for Brad.
Rob V says on 19/Jan/15

@jamie179cm. That's non-sense. Bloom looks a good 1,5 inch taller than 5'9 Johnny Depp most of the time. Plus, I've seen his sculpture at Tussaud's, 179 seems to be spot on. Which leads to my question again: How can a 5'11 guy look 2 inches taller than a 179 guy?

@snfnf i don't think hes 5ft11 but good question a 5ft11 guy doesn't need lifts sure it isn't tall but it isn't short although a 5ft11 guy can feel short sometimes but 6ft4 guy wearing lifts is ridiculous
SNFNF says on 17/Jan/15
Cruise is 5'7. Brad Pitt is 5'11

Both wear 2 inch lifts. Cruise is mocked for it. Pitt is strange as to why a 5'11 man would wear lifts. Though apparently 6'4 John Wayne also wore lifts

what about those shoes? they don´t look like usual shoes to me, more like cowboy boots. How much height do you think they add?

Jeff says on 16/Jan/15
Rob, Pitt looks more like 181-182 to me these days. He constantly manages to look taller than 5'11 men. Look at him with Jon Bernthal, for example. Also, how can he look 4-5cm taller than 179 Orlando Bloom without any suspicious shoes? Maybe he was just rounding up when he did the 5'11claim.
jamie179cm says on 16/Jan/15
@snatch thats true in barefeet he would be shorter than her so im sure pitt isn't taler than 177cm and plus i don't think he has a big body frame he just give a illusions that he has one. i just people think want there stars to be as tall as possible for reason rather than find out there true height plus people who say hes 5ft10 5ft11 Can't seem to answers my question about why he was barely taller than gwyneth lol
Pizzaman says on 15/Jan/15
Rob, how about 179? It is a good compromis between how tall he looked in his younger days and between his larger appearance nowadays. With 179 he can definitely look 182 with only 3 cm lifts. Would you agree on rather 179 than 181 at least? If he was 181 he would often reach 187 in lifts and that is never the case.
Jeff says on 15/Jan/15
Rob, do you agree that Pitt never looks 5'11 flat these days, more like 6ft? Does he look like a height-aware kind of guy to you?
[Editor Rob: lI don't think he generally looks 6ft, but usually in 5ft 11 and with some good posture at times can appear more.

I think he appears quite height aware, you're rarely going to catch him slouching at photocalls.]

a strong 5 foot 9ner

wakes up at 5 10 and shrinks down thats why he comes off
as short

the pic with claudia is the smoking gun we know her model height
the most that women can be is 5 11 and he's badly 1.5 inches taller
than her in shoes that has lifts in them

@Parker Jimmy fallon is a lift wear so 5ft10 isn't impossible to be honest 5ft9 wouldn't shock me

why would CLOONEY refer to him as 6'1? when he knows Pitt is no taller than 5'11? did he and Pitt and Damon reveal their lifts to 1 another?
jamie179cm says on 14/Jan/15
@Clay maybe in some countrys 5ft9 is tall but not in us or uk i just can't buy 5ft11 pitt he is a lift wear and never looks 6ft1 in lifts heck i don't even think he looks 6ft in lifts most of the time a legit 5ft11 guy could pull off a 6ft1 or even 6ft2 in lifts and imo pitt never looks it, imo pitt does look 180cm or 182cm in lifts so 175cm barefoot isn't impossible near 177cm barefoot
Matt says on 13/Jan/15
@Dan Exactly. Brad pitt is never under 5'10.

He probally wake up at 5'11 then loose 1 inch at the end of the day hes 5'10.

He look too tall to be a 5'9 guy.

Hes too tall too like a 5'9 Guy.

Hes very lean proabably around 155 pounds i dont know his exact weight but someone whos light will always look taller than someone whos is heavy, hes and ectomorph too.
Dmeyer says on 13/Jan/15
Click Here , this are about 3.5-3.8cm slightly under 4cm plus the fact that the shoe front is slim so it gives léss than if it was a cat boot with a 0.6in front so those should give barely over 3cm 3.1-3.4cm so not évén 1cm more than a regular shoe , and yet he usualy looks 5'11.25-11.75 range Guy in those
Dan says on 13/Jan/15
Rob, can you tell us from your estimate, how much height increase someone can gain from having 3" total from their footwear and lifts? If a guy 5-10 has a 1.5" insert and a 1.25" heel, do you know what his total height will be? Also accounting for walking strides and relaxed posture. Can a 5-9" easily pull off six feet with 3" footwear help without looking very oddly unbalanced like Downey jr.??
[Editor Rob: he might get about 2.5 inches at most, maybe 2.3 range (which is quite a big amount). Trying to walk in bigger lifts becomes harder. With anything though, if you practice and use them you would become better and find the right stride pattern so it won't look too bad.]

Thus, Brad P is half inch shorter at least, nearly 1.76-1.77 or 5.9.5

Brad is not 5.11.
snatch says on 10/Jan/15
I've seen to much evidence suggesting that this guy is
anything over 177cm at the end of the day

maybe 177cm is a stretch

he has a small head and short legs

i have a small head and short legs and i am 172 cm at the end of the day

someone with that body structure can not be only 2 inches shorter then 6 feet

my best guess is he is 5 10 in the morning and shrinks to 5 foot 9 and 75 at
the end of the day

wears lifts with hair and posture can look 5 11 he's never looked
6 foot to me even in lifts

if someone has short legs thats a deal breaker on being tall
usually tall people have long legs with average torso

even someone super tall would probably have similar torso
with a short person sitting down

and pitt has a small that usual head

matt damons head is bigger than pitts
clooneys heads bigger then pitts

having a small head takes at least a inch off or more

so him being only 2 inches off 6 feet is un realistic
he more like 3 inches off six feet

hes a small man

imagine him without shoes on the photos above
he would look even smaller
Dan says on 10/Jan/15
Pitt has managed looking 6ft for the last 10 years... Rob, how tall do you think the general public thinks he is? I personally thought he was in the 6'1 range before picking an interest in height. I'm sure a lot of people do too

looking at their eye levels at 2:45, i'd say fallon looks .5-1 inch taller than Pitt. so fallon is 5'11.5, so that puts pitt at 5'10.5 - 5'11 which i think most of us agree he is anyway right?

There is a reason why you won´t ever see Sly, Pitt and Cruise together in the same premiere in public or in any same pic. They would expose themselves as lift wearers (not that they haven´t already).

At least I have seen Sly on a beach bareefeet 20 years ago and he was shorter than his current wife. Cruise´s height changes a lot but even he was standing bareefeet next to Katie Holmes and was shorter of course. With Pitt it´s a different story, you wouldn´t see that guy ever barefeet or in sandals in public, no way. Clooney is taller than Pitt when they wear the same shoes. The most ridiculous pic I have ever seen was Brad Pitt being almost as tall as Clint Eastwood who is a legit 6´4 guy, even though he might have lost a couple of inches. You can´t be almost as tall as Clint Eastwood when there are pics showing Pitt in shoes being barely taller than barefooted Matt Damon and Clooney. Not possible.

I think 5' 11" is a good estimate. He does look taller than he did in the early '90s though and can look 6' 0" at times...
shell says on 1/Jan/15
You can debate his height with current pictures all you want and you will never know his true height. Everyone in Hollywood wears creative footwear. Someone please find a barefoot picture of him or even in flip flops sowe can judge his height. I have looked and can't find any. Except for the nude pictures of him and Paltrow, where they look very close in height, there are none. He is very careful never to be seen barefoot even on the beach he wears boots or sneakers. There are so many inconsistencies in his height in different pictures so I would estimate his height by his early, obscure work, where he looks to be about 5 ft 9 maybe 5 ft 10 next to other actors, especially geena Davis.

As for comparing him to many of his friends I was in Las Vegas when they were filming oceans 11 and they are all much shorter than they look on the screen. Between my friends and I we saw almost all of them during our week there.

tell me would someone 5 11 be towered by someone 6 foot 1 ?

i don't mean anything when i say you are insulting my intelligence but
gwen and pitt are 1 inch apart

and gwen is 5 inches shorter then Chris
so that means pitt would be 4 inches off chris
so that means pitt is 5 foot 9

4 - 6 foot 1 = 5 foot 9

[Editor Rob: I would bet that on my stadiometer at lunchtime he would be nearer 5ft 11 than 10.75.

But if he arrived after being out and about all day and after playing horsie with angelina jolie on his back, then I wouldn't be sure on the 5ft 11 bet, it would be a 50/50, he could measure under it.]

Heylo says on 25/Dec/14
Stupid to think that Brad is 5'9. Is it so hard to understand that you can't look "normal" in super massive lifts. Brad Pitt is around 6ft in lifts.

Honestly, he can't be under 5'10 and if he is, it has to be by some mm that isn't noticeable (177.5 or something..). You can degrade his height by 1.5-2 inches when he has his lifts on and if we are going to judge his height based on all the famous gala premiere photos etc he will be a legit 6ft or slightly under at 182. 182 - 4-5cm = 177-178cm. Probably around 177-178 cm barefoot.

But this has been pointed out several times.
snatch says on 25/Dec/14
gwens paltrows husband chris martin towers gwen by a lot

so however much chris is taller then gwen would be same for pitt

claudia has longer legs with a bigger head
she's taller then him and she's supposedly 5 foot 11

Brad is like 5´10 barefeet, I can´t see him being a legit 5´11 guy otherwise he would claim to be 6ft in shoes.

Anyway I measured myself by using one of Rob´s methods. I couldn´t believe the range between morning and evening height, there was like a 2cm -2,5cm difference. Where does the difference disappear in the evening? LOL I was like 175,5 cm in the evening (barefeet) and 177,5 cm in the morning (barefeet) and almost 179,5 cm in shoes.
Voiceless Dental Fricative says on 20/Dec/14
He looks close to 6' most of the time, but I think Pitt is quite a height conscious guy and has impeccable posture/footwear.

In strong shoes and good posture he's only got a 1.5ish inches on Claudia Schaffer in slippers. I think someone posted that she has claimed 179cm.

Pitt also look barely taller than Gwenyth paltrow in their barefoot nude pics.

I think he might be closer to 5'10 and just disguises is well.
