How tall is Brad Pitt ?

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 that "He's tall. He's like 6-1. It's irritating."

Somewhere between 178cm and 181cm is arguable.
Arch Stanton says on 1/Jul/15
You could argue 5'10 range at times but "under 5'9" hijopotamus is just jealous trolling. You can't really believe that.
6'1 Joe says on 1/Jul/15
@Marcus: I don't believe your claims. I can show you certain pics where Brad looks 6'-6'1" with Jonah Hill. Just google Jonah Hill and Brad Pitt.
177-178 cm guy says on 1/Jul/15
A part of me wonders if Brad reads this page and laughs at how obsessed we are with his height. He probably laughs even harder that people think he's 5'8".

MJKoP says ..."the massively overwhelming amount of evidence in regards to his size."

lol looks like someone has a man crush!
If Brad is 5'11, then Chris Waltz needs a 4" upgrade asap!

Why does a 5'11 man wear lifts?
NBAer says on 30/Jun/15
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.
hijopotamus says on 30/Jun/15
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.
MJKoP says on 29/Jun/15
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??
hijopotamus says on 29/Jun/15
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!

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.
MarcusTheSwede says on 28/Jun/15
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 statement..you 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.
Dmeyer says on 27/Jun/15
Lets not Forget 1cm lifts Will give 6-7mm tops so a solid 0.25 in that Still enaugh in a dress shoes to look more solid , i remember a 5'11.5 friend of mine who looked 6ft a lot and then realized je had a lifts that give 7mm nearly 1cm it made him apear closer to 6'0

Sam says 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 says 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!
MJKoP says on 26/Jun/15
Zack Beltios says on 24/Jun/15
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 says 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 says 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.

149-129 says on 22/Jun/15
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 says on 21/Jun/15
Rob maybe hovering around 181cm 20 years ago?
Dmeyer says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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?]
Tarinator says on 15/Jun/15
Looks 5'11.5 with Jonah Hill.

Interesting...
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 says 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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Jun/15
Lol 6ft1 range w/h Claudia Schiffer
184.3cm (Night) says 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 says 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.
Dmeyer says on 10/Jun/15
Parker says on 10/Jun/15
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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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 says 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.
Dmeyer says on 7/Jun/15
I met Jennifer in Heels She is about 172cm about 164cm without
truth says on 6/Jun/15
@hijopotamus Paltrow is a strong 5ft9 struggling with 5ft10 and Pitt is an inch taller. If anything, upgrade Paltrow and downgrade Pitt.
6'1" Joe says on 5/Jun/15
@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!]
modeus says on 2/Jun/15
5 ft 8 is plain retarded
Heylo says on 2/Jun/15
Okay, I understand, thank you Rob for taking the time to answer.

So any celebrity or any man walking down the street could wear a small 0.5-0.8 inch lift making them look taller (subtle difference of course but still) without us knowing it. Therefor, it's hard to pin down celebrities height at an exact measurement.
Brad could really be anywhere between 178 and 181cm. I mean, any man could without problem make them look taller than they really are, even by a full inch.

I met brad Pitt in Carmel California. He was about two inches shorter than my dad who is 5'11". He was not short not tall. Under 5'11" for sure but over 5'8". So cute. Not my type, too short actually and cutesy but cool celebrity meeting for sure:)
Heylo says on 31/May/15
Rob, you know much about lifts, how much taller can you get with a boot and a lift inside without actually looking suspicious? My own wild guess is that you can get about 2inches if you have a good boot who gives you 3-4cm and then a lift around 1.5cm inside.
[Editor Rob: some boots like This one I measured can give you 4cm. You could put a 1.25 inch lift in there and get nearly a full inch of extra height. So you are talking being about 2.5 inches taller. A 2-inch lift may fit but it will squeeze your foot in the shoe and probably not be comfortable. If you can get 2 inch lifts you might get almost 1.5 inches of lift out of them. Then you are looking at 3-inches overall...very significant.
But, the boot will bulge at the laces when you go that high. A half inch lift won't really make any difference to the look (to the person on the street)...a 1-1.5 will start to make your foot bulge, I think people mostly wouldn't care, but some might think it was odd.]

I never understood why Pitt wears lifts... I mean if he really is 5' 11" then he's not exactly short lol.
hijopotamus says on 30/May/15
Filippo, a shade under 5'11"? Is Paltrow 5'10" ish? I don't think so!
Filippo says on 29/May/15
Just take a look at his footwear in heylo's first couple of pics..
I mean, I think he has perfect height, but hey.. The guy seems to have something of a paranoia about it! There isn't a single trustable pic of him!! He looks different heights in each and everyone!
IMO, the only real proof we have, is the barefoot pic with Paltrow. Which puts him a shade under 5'11.
OneNamePlease says on 28/May/15

Lots of wishful thinking here, 5'8" is a LOL statement! Brad is minimum 5'10".
Arch Stanton says on 27/May/15
@Anon peach

If you read it I didn't say that! I was responding to the person who said that and I said "Do you realise how big 3-4 inch elevators would actually look? 10cm from shoes is crazy. I've yet to see Pitt in footwear which would give him over 2 inches. LOL the chances of 5 ft 8 and a half!! " !!
Pizzaman says on 26/May/15
In the 2nd photo of Heylo he looks on 1-2" taller than Logan Lerman, while the photo is completely tilted in his favour! Jon Bernthal on the other hand looks to have 2" on Pitt, although superior posture!
an anonymous peach says on 26/May/15
@Arch Stanton No way, 174cm is way too low for Pitt. Like someone said before, it would be almost impossible for a 5'8 guy to look 6'1 in lifts without giving the appearance of having freakishly long legs. Pitt is 178cm MINIMUM.
Silent_D says on 26/May/15
177cm.
callaghan says on 25/May/15
NO WAY he's more than 5.9,5
Paltrow is 5.9 and they are actually the same height when they both are barefoot.
Heylo says on 25/May/15
John Bernthal is a legit 5'11 and he looks taller than Brad Pitt on some occasions while Brad looks taller at some. But could this be because of lift using by Brad or is it just posture? He looks 177-178cm next to 180cm John Bernthal in these photos from last year:

Wanna hear your opinions. I think there could be a chance that he is a strong 5'10, around 178.5 and he occasionally wear small lifts and a thicker sole that gives him the edge against 5'11 people on the red carpet. What do you guys think?
hijopotamus says on 25/May/15
Blink, any pics of Pitt with no shoes on that show that he is 5'11"? What we have is a pic with Paltrow both barefoot and same height. The rest are all with tricky shoes and lifts.

Don't think Pitt is standing straight in that Pic, but I agree if Logan Lerman is as listed (5'7.5) Pitt doesn't look 5'11. But Lerman is listed at 5'9 on Google, of course I'll always believe Rob's is the better guess, but he could be 5'8?

I like how people use one example to say he's below 5'11 but refuse to accept all the other photos that suggest otherwise.
gp says on 24/May/15
Pitt'height is so controversial, He seems to have 1" on Clooney on lots of pics but there are a few Clooney seems at parr,In the movie Sleepers,Pitt seems to have 2 inches or more on Jason Patric who is put at 5'9.5 but there are a few pics of Patric with Matt Damon and they are exactly the same height,Then you have a pic with Mel Gibson with Patric and they are same height.Going back to Pitt .He seems to have almost or exactly 2 inches on actors listed at 5'10( Matt Damon being one) which would logically should put him at 11.75 or 6 feet.Does he where lifts?I don't know.he would be the only one but.He surely is a mystery.Hope Rob could meet him one day and have a picture with.Then we would really know the truth.For those that try to guess heights having seen celebrities live in person,unless they were side by side you all know that it is tricky .I many times have seen people that were about 2 feet away from me and seemd shorter and going close actually were taller than me.Hope to know the truth not that it is important but it is important knowing that celebrities don't have to lie.

174.5 cm says on 16/May/15
i would say 174-178 cm would be the best range for pitt he looks like he wears 3-4 inch elevators sometimes so 175 + 10 cm elevators would put him at 185 cm right in his place

Do you realise how big 3-4 inch elevators would actually look? 10cm from shoes is crazy. I've yet to see Pitt in footwear which would give him over 2 inches. LOL the chances of 5 ft 8 and a half!!

That one primarily with 5'9" Paltrow barefoot.

Personally I don't think the angle/posture is great for judging. There's a chance of 5 ft 10, but 5 ft 9 flat is daft I think.

Rob, how can you explain that he looks a couple of inches taller than 5'10 William Hague?
[Editor Rob: I thought Pitt could look about 1.5 inches taller]. Rob do you mean 1.5in considering shoes as Pitt has a 0.6in bigger shoe , not looking at shoes Pitt can look 0.75-2.5in taller
[Editor Rob: he can look near 2 inches taller, although I'm not sure about some of the angles the camera is at. I think his shoe is about half inch difference, so maybe 1.5, but then Hague never looks much under 5ft 10.]
Alex says on 21/May/15
5'10.5 is more likely than 5'11

He has to be 179. No shorter than 178 and no taller than 180. Seriously if he was 182, why would he wear lifts?

I would say 179-180 is arguable cant see him lower or higher. 5'10.5" - 5'11.
hijoputas says on 17/May/15
Bandet, a 5'9"-5'10" guy with lifts or custom shoes will reach 6' as Pitt seems to be. If he was 5'11" he would be 6' just wearing any type of regular shoes. Thing is that he always wears some type of enhacing shoes.
5'11" with the shoes he wears he would reach the 6'2" mark and he never did.

Why do people think Brad Pitt is 5'9? Does anyone have pictures that would suggest he is 5'9? In my opinion 5'10 is the shortest he could be.
Judd says on 14/May/15
substantially i can't admitt that he looks averagely tall.
I have read time ago that he was 5'11.5" and I believed it. now, 5'11.5" is a bit overestimated, because next to Bruce Willis (5'11.5" in 1995) he did look a little under, but i can't accept anything under 5'10.75" for him...5'11" is, i think, a good listing.
Greatheight says on 13/May/15
5'9 without his heels. Maybe a tad taller in his prime, but the guy wears lifts nowadays so it is hard to tell. The paltrow pics that any claim above 5'10 is bs. Now way he is even close to 5'11
tilda says on 11/May/15
he is definitely 5'11 flat.

taller than some guys who claim 5'11 but actually not.
Alex says on 10/May/15

I'm convinced Brad is 179cm tall and I've gone through every opinion from 175 to 182 but after meeting the man at the ppremiere for fury it was sealed. Im 175 and he was 2.5 inches taller but walking funny in special shoes. I said hey what you packing and he actually said the word inserts. Make of that what you will
Heylo says on 7/May/15
hijoputa, I actually agree with you and I had the same arguments for a while but let's be honest too, he looks surprisingly tall on public events. He looks 5'11.5 next to 5'10 and 5'11 people etc.. I think it's hard to pin down his height, for me, he could be anywhere from 177 to 180...
Dmeyer says on 3/May/15
In late pic he looks same to 1cm taller than 179-80 M maccaughaughey , and as taller to 2cm taller than 182-3cm who had weak posture 5'11 is right his shoes didnt look big the Guy is 5' 11 can look 6' with posture évén with normal shoes at times

5'10" without his lifts.

hijoputa, except the fact that his head is slightly tilted. He looked 177-178 next to a 175 Paltrow if we count in that he didn't stand fully straight.

Rob did Angelina call to let you know, bad news, Brad hasn't measured 182cm for 2 days in a row. He's borrowed Arnie's stretcher for the last couple hours. Finger's crossed guys, the election will have to wait.

Snatch, you are deluded. When are you gonna learn that proportions doesn't equal a certain height?
Most photos shows that he most likely isn't smaller than 5'10.

There's no way on this earth a 5'8" guy can look 6'1" with elevators. Even if he did, his legs would look freakishly long.
Pizzaman says on 29/Apr/15
Better angle with Claudia Schiffer and now she stretches her legs. Her head is turned sideways and Pitt still struggles to look an inch taller with an inch more footwear and maybe even more inside.

Most likely a fraction below 5'11".

@Bobby, completely agree. 178.5-179.
snatch says on 28/Apr/15
i would say 5 foot 10 is a stretch lol

hes a pure premium anatomically 5 foot 9 and half
wears 1 and half inch lifts and is 5 11 to 6 feet max

never seen him hit 6 foot 1 djimon towered him made him look
5foot 9

anyone who says he's over 5 foot 10 is from his camp
anyone with the right mind knows he's 5 foot 10 max

but 5 foot 9 and half is his real height believe I've seen so many
photos of him he's a pure example of a average american height

my uncle is 5 foot 9 and he's built just like pitt and looks the same
exact height i have a friend who is 5 11 and i can tell my friend
is taller then pitt

i really don't care for his height i find this site fun

but anyone who was says he' is 178 or 179 is clearly
from pitts camp

he always looked short even in lifts he's
176.5 with a small head if he had a bigger
head he would have hit 178 no problem

[Editor Rob: of course, Angelina phones me every month at 7am just to tell me Brad's not shrinking ye]is this true or are you kidding?
[Editor Rob: it's as true as the promises from a Politician's lips before an election. ]
Bobby says on 27/Apr/15
Like with many actors, he looks taller than what he is (in movies). He looks tall in most movies. But generally that is because 5'11 IS the start of tall in most countries even though 6ft is printed as the golden mark in people's head and of course he often has a small lift in his thick wedged shoes which makes him look like a legit 6ft.

When I look at paparazzi photos of him walking down the street with his wife or something he looks slightly above average but not more. 178.5-179 is my guess for him. Never looked short, can look tall, looks above average most of the time, average at worst. Good proportions for a small liftinsole so he never looks suspicious either. But perhaps I haven't seen as much photos as you guys seem to analyse.
Appe 6ft 0.5 says on 24/Apr/15
To me he is between 180-181
JD184 says on 24/Apr/15
He's definitely not shorter than 5'10.5. He's always been in great shape which can make him appear 6'0+, but he's 5'11, 5'10.75 MINIMUM. Maybe 5'11.25 in his prime. Those boots make him look goofy.

Judd says on 21/Apr/15
5'11" is a bit optimistic for him IMO but I think he can't be under 5'10...
I think he would be in the 5'10.5" zone, so not a full 180 cms guy!

Norton also has a habit of slouching, his posture is never really good. Only time i saw him look 6' was in American History X.

djimon towered him 5 foot 10 max

i met jauqin pheonix 2 years ago and he is 5 foot 8 and i am 5 foot 8 also
he seemed like 3 inches taller then me even though we are the same height
he was very very skinny in person and slight chance he was wearing lifts

but he seemed way taller then me even though we are the exact height

he seemed like 5 11

if phoenix never admitted that he was 5 foot 8 then that day when i met him
i would have said he is 5 11 even though he is not

Were we watching the same film? Brad looked taller to me and as an earlier poster said Brad was wearing lifts to look taller as was Meatloaf.
Heylo says on 20/Apr/15
You knew for sure that he was half an inch shorter than you? While I don't see it as impossible for him to be around 177cm I would more likely believe 179cm. No one here can verify your story and do you have any photo taken of you from this press conference, an autograph, anything?
Dejavu says on 20/Apr/15
He wasn't taller than Edward Norton. Norton had an inch on him.
5'9.5'' says on 18/Apr/15
I really don't get everyone who thinks he's anything less than 5'11'', if that was the case then he'd need high heels to look taller than legit 6' Ed Norton in fight club.
pitbull says on 18/Apr/15
met him in flesh 5 years ago in rome.
he was wearing normal shoes for the press conference, i think there was no lifts at the moment. I'm 5.10 and when he passed me by he was almost the same height than me, 0,5 inches less for sure. defenitely not a short guy, but WAY FAR from being tall. very slim frame and large shoulders, earing lifts he can look like a solid 6" man
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM says on 18/Apr/15

Click Here Here is Brad and Angelina in 2009 at a pet store. Brad is wearing Vans surf shoes called Half crepe. I'm pretty sure he'd throw a lift in them to look taller but they can't be any bigger than 1" without looking weird. I've always noticed something weird about Pitt and I think he puts his lifts in his socks. I know it sounds crazy but it's the only way to explain how he can take his shoes off at the airport and still not lose much height. Also could explain why he kept his socks on when he jumped off the yacht with Matt Damon while filming oceans 12 in 2004. Granted in this images at the pet shop with his family, the guy still doesn't look shorter than 5-10.5. And that's in very flat vans. So judge for yourself. 5-8 is absurd for Brad Pitt. And no, a 5-8 guy cannot look 6-0 without either looking ridiculous or wearing huge elevator shoes.
Dmeyer says on 14/Apr/15

0.5cm or near 0.25 in height loss by 50 is typical right rob 0.5cm by is not considerd a big loss ????
[Editor Rob: 5mm by 50 is quite typical. A lot of people won't realise they lose it. A guy like Pitt though I think has good physique, good diet so is probably less than average, so he may only lose 1-2mm.]

If he's only 5'8", then the following people need huge downgrades:

2. Will Ferrell to 5'11.25"
3. Matt Damon to 5'6" (serious)
4. George Clooney to 5'7"
5. Gerard Butler to 5'10.25" (due to downgrading George Clooney, and this seems bizarre)
6. Tom Cruise to 5'5" (since Tom Cruise was no more than three inches shorter than Brad Pitt. I bet that some actually want Tom Cruise to be 5'5", however).
7. Nicolas Cage to 5'9.25" (since he towered over Tom Cruise)
8. Edward Norton to 5'8.5"
9. John Travolta to 5'8" (since Nicolas Cage destroyed him)
10. Jonah Hill 5'3.5" (he was much taller than this in person)

There is no way that he is 5'8".




Hahahahaha, I laughed hard with your comment.
Mr. R says on 12/Apr/15
Rob, once and for all - Do you think that Brad Pitt wears shoes that boost his height.
[Editor Rob: at times he has thicker heeled shoes and at other times wears thick boots. Putting half inch lifts in a lot of footwear is harder to spot though, that's why a lot of actors you just don't know...I bet some would surprise us.]
Mr. R says on 12/Apr/15
SpaceMonkey - something is off with that pic. BP is taller.
Dan says on 11/Apr/15
Space monkey, that image is from a weird perspective and there are several other images of them on that set and they were the same height. Also, since that was oceans 12 im pretty sure clooney is wearing lifts

Oh this spacemonkey picture shows a brad pitt that fits at maximum the 5'9" range
MarcusTheSwede says on 11/Apr/15
SpaceMonkey: Awsome picture. No matter camera angle well its time to Downgrade Brad once and for all for gods sake we have provided picture evidence of heels and build up shoes on Brad for years. Awsome guy but needs downgrade.
MarcusTheSwede says on 11/Apr/15
B-Mint: yes way its EASY to make a five Eight man look sixfoot. Its called heel boots , outside heal 4-5cm and insole height 2cm plus the shoes already height inside wich in most boots are about 1-2 cm from heel just add it up and also there are Both shoes and height increasing shoes and heels that pack more height Then what I just wrote above Kind regards Marcus
Paleman says on 11/Apr/15
The 5'8-5'9 claims are ridiculous. Even 5'10 seems a fraction too low. I personally can't buy anything less than 179cm for Pitt, but a solid 180-181cm seems more plausible. Definitely below 5'11 and a half, but taller than 5'10 as well.
Bishop says on 11/Apr/15
His height has always been hard to pin down. I'd say a weak 5'11".
Heylo says on 11/Apr/15

Hi! I dont know if you are naive or something but it is not very hard for well built 5' 9-10" guy to look 6' with the right footwear and 1-2 inch lifts. And 100% that is the case for Brad.
hal says on 10/Apr/15
The downgraders on this site are so funny sometimes. Like this JCS guy. There's no way Brad's shorter than 5'10". And I agree that he's 5'11" at most.
b-mint1994 says on 9/Apr/15
JCS is just trolling. There is no way a 5'8" guy could wear lifts and look 6 foot+ like Brad has done over the years.
Cali says on 9/Apr/15
5'10.5 on the dot
Heylo says on 9/Apr/15
JCS, if that was true, we would have to downgrade every actor that's been around Brad on photos. Matt Damon is 5'7 then? George Clooney 5'8? It's very easy for anyone to say that they "met" Brad Pitt just to get their personal opinion through as a fact. But if you're telling the truth, then I would see it as an accomplishment from Brad's side, looking 5'11 when he's really 5'8.. Doesn't make sense anyway.
Heylo says on 9/Apr/15
I agree with Dan, apart from certain movie shoots, he regularly does NOT use any massive elevator shoes. But I don't think it's unlikely that he once in a while have a small lift inside that really gives him an subtle upgrade of 1.5-2cm.

I think he fluctuate between 183-84cm (+ or - some mm) in boots and is around 179 barefoot.
MarcusTheSwede says on 9/Apr/15
JCS : Agree with you on that. Love Brad but he is not even close to 180 without his high heeled boots.
JCS says on 9/Apr/15
Alright folks here is the scoop I had an extra part in a film shot in Portland Or back in the mid 90's. I. Got on a bus with Mr pit, sat a few seats away from him and stood behind him when we got off the bus. I was struck by how short and slight of build he was in person. I stand 5'9 " in the morning and about 5'8" in the evening, Mr Pitt was noticably shorter than I, I would be surprised if he hit 5'8" at that time and I seriously doubt he has grown any since then . He gets paid for his acting not his height. Take it from me he is nowhere near 5'11".

and guys, just because you wear chuck Taylor's all day doesn't mean it's ridiculous to wear a 2" boot heel. Most biker boots have that size. Most cowboy boots have that size. All Pitt's boots are rugged manly distressed leather boots.
Dan says on 8/Apr/15
Pitt doesn't wear massive heels. Maybe to a guy wearing chuck Taylor's. He wears average high end boot heels that are no more than 2" and that's probably the biggest. They're called stacked heels not Cubans. The average size boot heel he has always worn is 1.5". And he doesn't wear tricky elevator shoes.
MarcusTheSwede says on 8/Apr/15
This height is ridicilous. Brad is much shorter. If you think he as tall as Rudy Reyes (Fruity Rudy at Generation Kill , for example well Brad is much shorter) Brad always Wears shoes with either very very High heel or and height insole. How can you see its a height increasing insole? Well you see the upper line pushing from within shoe making a stripe on inside of shoe that bulks and that line is clearly shown from outside. Also the heels Brad wear is so damn High in every picture. Brad is at best at best 177 178 without shoes and insoles at best but my geuss would be around 176.5 sorry for my English. This needs a downgrade. Just Google Brad Pitt heel shoes and thats the easy way to see. Thanks kind regards from Sweden

Hijoputa, I'm open for anything between 5'10 and 5'11 but were just stating that at 5'11 with regular black boots and small liftt would reach 183-184cm (depending on if he's 179 or 180).

Or am I stupid for thinking that he has REGULAR black boots? Maybe I should have said that he wears MASSIVE super heels with a height of 8cm and a 5cm lift inside, Brad Pitt is 5'7..
Heylo says on 8/Apr/15
Brad Pitt were actually listed at 6ft (183cm) just after his breakthrough in Thelma & Louise:
Click Here

This photo with Paltrow which has been around before looks weird and is good to bring up again I think. Brad is in flatter shoes than usual and looks like he's slightly closer to the camera than Paltrow but still manages to look very close in height. Click Here

Paltrow's shoes would get her at about 5'10 if she's 5'9 as listed. Brad might've been 5'11 with those flat shoes and only be one inch taller than his then girlfriend.

Don't know if the photo gives off some weird illusion though. But Brad at 178cm isn¨t impossible. Think about it, he looked fairly close to Paltrow in height naked and barefoot. Just one inch difference between them barefoot isn't a stupid guess. Then of course he managed to look much taller when he used his big heel shoes and she used flats.

Heylo says on 5/Apr/15
Of course it's very hard to tell how much height his shoes in the Oprah video give him but to me it looks like regular fashionable black boots, so about 1inch + a small lift (1-2cm) which would approximately give him 1.5inch. Easily 6ft in shoes. Around 5'10.5-5'11 barefoot...

@Heylo: Yeah, I've also read/heard people say "5ft 11 is basically 6ft" - so in cases where one is in that area between the 5'11 and 6'0 mark, it's often thought of as 'ok' to just say "6ft" or "about 6ft". Also I feel that, in general, telling a 1 inch difference can seem like a tough ask for a lot of people...
Dmeyer says on 3/Apr/15
Even if people call 5'11 at 6ft and lests say he had 1cm over normal shoes he has to be 5'10.5-10.75 to have Been described 6ft
Heylo says on 3/Apr/15
...But then it's important to note that people in general are bad at estimating heights. They almost always overestimate by one inch or two. Oprah can't know for sure if he's 6ft or 5'11, she probably just asked Brad and she thought it sounded logical because he's around 6ft in shoes.
Heylo says on 3/Apr/15
It totally makes sense that Oprah perceived him as 6ft. 179-180 + shoes who add 1 inch + 1.5-2cm lift = 183-184cm.
b-mint1994 says on 2/Apr/15
@Adolf Oprah described him as "6 feet" in this video:

AZ says on 2/Apr/15
but why? you're a 5'11 man. why do you need to wear 2-3 inch lifts? To feel tall? for what reason.
Adolf says on 1/Apr/15
He looks 5'11. I think he claimed 6' on Oprah. This heels are ridiculous by the way.
Parker says on 1/Apr/15
h says on 31/Mar/15
if he was 5'11 why would he wear 2 inch lifts? for what reason?

To look and feel taller.
pauly e says on 1/Apr/15
Looking at that pic w/claudia schiffer, she is not standing straight like Pitt is. I think they'd be very close in height if she stood up straight.....and he's in boots with a heel and she is in the flattest of flat shoes. she is probably 5'11.25 in those shoes, so Pitt is what, 5'11.5 - 5'11.75 in thsoe boots? assuming no lifts, that puts him in the 5'10 range. I'd still bet on around 5'10.5.
James B says on 1/Apr/15
Saw Troy the other day. I'd say Brad Pitt looked average sized in that film. Facially in that movie reminded me of Arnold Schwarzenegger in Conan the Barbarian hair, face structure, jaw and eyes etc.....

Now, I know the ground is not even... but it looks so suspicious...
The Master says on 30/Mar/15
At the London premiere pics for Fury, he looks 6'.
DJD says on 30/Mar/15
he's either 5'10 or 5'11. an average height. But since he's a big star folks want to believe he's 6'1.
pauly e says on 30/Mar/15
I agree Mat 5'10.

if we were 5'11 on the nose, I think he (or his agency/publicist, etc) would claim 6'0. Most guys I know who are 5'11-ish claim 6'1 actually, because in a good pair of shoes they are that height.

I'd bet that he is a bit below 5'11, like 5'10.5; but that picture of him with Hounsou is troubling.

For what it's worth, I don't believe Clooney was kidding when he said Pitt was 6'1 either. Clooney used to claim 5'11.5, which i believe he is in shoes. Pitt, when packing his big guns, is proabably over 6'0, so i think Clooney was being genuine when he said that....
special forces says on 29/Mar/15
Amazing how Pitt has made a career of having everyone believe he is tall. Years ago I'd have believed he was 6 foot even. But now I'm thinking he's 5'10. Probably right. Wrong choice for Achilles in Troy btw
Heylo says on 29/Mar/15
Jacob,he didn't start getting his muscular body until his career started in the late 80s and since then he has always been working out, more or less in periods. He have always been in great shape.

With slim, people may mean that he always seems to have been having this natural thin body with thin wrists and ankles. He used a body double in Troy in some scenes where his legs were supposed to be visible but I'm not sure of how true that rumor is(problems building enough muscles on his legs), however, he always had this very thin slim build. Easy to keep a low BF and looks incredibly good as soon as he put on some muscle. But perhaps we all interpret the term "slim" differently, therefor, I can't say that you're wrong.
Mat 5'10 says on 28/Mar/15
The strangest think is.. if Pitt was in fact a legit 5'11 man, there's no way his agency or himself would not list him as a 6 footer, given his sex symbol status. If you count the fact that he always wears impeccable footwear he should be able to fool virtually everyone. He has to be a weak 5'11, like 5'10.5 or something. Otherwise it doesn't make sense
Jacob says on 27/Mar/15
Why does everyone always accentuate the fact that he's slim built and thus seems taller? I thought Pitt is more of a muscular type.. yeah he might not have any body fat but it's all pure muscle. He has never come across to me as a slender or slim guy.
Jeff says on 27/Mar/15
Hum... there's nothing in the article that implies that Clooney is half-joking, I'm sorry...
Mat 5'10 says on 27/Mar/15
''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".''

What does that quote mean Rob? I don't understand. Did Clooney said that Pitt is 6'1? Or did he say he's 6'1 in shoes? You have to be more clear in your descriptions
[Editor Rob: I'm saying I think Clooney knows that Pitt at times has worn thick heels...I don't believe Clooney actually think's Pitt's 6ft 1, I think he's half-joking...]
The Master says on 27/Mar/15
Look at him with Fassbender or Bloom, solid 5'11".
b-mint1994 says on 27/Mar/15
Do you think he may be a little under 5'11" Rob or do you think 5'11" flat is the lowest he'd measure?

under 5'10 without his lifts.

And of course those of us who thinks he's 5'10.5-5'11 like myself.
Arch Stanton says on 25/Mar/15
I saw a picture of him and Jolie about a week ago and she was in flats and he was in canvas like shoes which really wouldn't have given him much height and he really looked a legit 5'11 with her. Funny how we get two kinds of posters on this page, those claiming he's 5'9 and others saying he's 6 ft!
Chuckie Cheese 2 says on 23/Mar/15
This guy has always been a bit tricky to pin down. He's 5 ft 11, 155 to 165 pounds, wears a size 9 shoe and is a slender to medium frame. He's another example of how a legit 5'11 slim guy can pull off 6 feet or 6 ft 1, and having a relatively smaller shoe size per stature gives the John Wayne like illusion of being taller than actuality (Wayne was 6'4" and wore an 11). Overall, Fantastic and classy actor with perfect proportions.
JH says on 23/Mar/15
Very strong 5'11
Dmeyer says on 23/Mar/15
I agree with hounsou looks 5'9.75 on a good day but the angle isnt great
Joe257 says on 22/Mar/15
Looks a weak 6'0" to me, like the top of Pitt's head might just barely make it to the mark! What do you think Rob, impossible!? What about 5'11.5"!? 5'11.5" seems more likely than 5'11" flat if you ask me....
[Editor Rob: from all I've seen I wouldn't go with 5ft 11.5, I believe the 5ft 11 is still a good shout...and a thicker shoe/boot at times aided with good posture can push him closer to appearing 5ft 11.5 or even 6ft in some cases.]
scythe says on 21/Mar/15
Strikes me more like a 5'10.5 kinda guy
snatch says on 20/Mar/15
thank you pauly e

he looks 4 inches shorter then someone who is 6 foot 1

no one here can say he does not look a good 4 inches
shorter then djimon

and djimon is not even standing up straight as you can see
his head and body is tilted

while pitt has a military posture

5 foot 10 max and thats a stretch

considering bono is no more then 5 foot 6
you telling me thats how a 5 foot then guy
looks next to a 5 foot 6 man ?

my honest opinion is he is 5 foot 9 and half at the end of
the day
dmeyer says on 20/Mar/15
I think 179-180 is possible not 181 or 178
Heylo says on 19/Mar/15
He doesn't necessarily have to be exactly 5'10, he could be somewhere in between which makes it confusing for us cause he can then look everything from 5'9.5 to 6ft depending on footwear, angles och posture.

I don't think it's stupid to say that he could be 178.7 or something like that depending on time of the day. But it's ridiculous analysing these small millimeters, I think around 5'11 is good enough to describe Brad Pitt. At the end of the day, we will never know his exact height.
dmeyer says on 19/Mar/15
From my 5'11.5 perspective 5'8-5'10 is i wouldnt see this as tall or short but under 5'8 or over 5'10 i will start sAying short or a lidl above average , once a guy is 5'10.5 it is not far from my heght and 5'7.5 is 4in shorter so short ,
Alex says on 18/Mar/15
Typical 5'10 bro trying to claim 5'11 if he is really 5'11 he wouldn't need lifts
pauly e says on 18/Mar/15
snatch, I think this is the picture you are referring to? Click Here


if so, i have to agree with you that Pitt does not look 5'11 at all considering Hounsou is 6'1.5" (listed here). Housou looks a good 3.5-4" taller than Pitt to me. His eyes are not quite at the top of Pitts skull which would equate to 4.5". We can't see footwear here, but Pitt does look to struggle with 5'10 in this photo.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 16/Mar/15
He is a solid 5ft11. Everyone here just wants him to be shorter.
Same type of nonsense seen on the Cruise page...
Jacob says on 15/Mar/15
Found an interesting picture from Meet Joe Black. Here's Brad with 5'5" listed Claire Forlani (on this website), she seems to be tip-toeing. As you might try out yourself, tip-toeing gives you at maximum 3 inches, putting her at around 5'8" standing upright like that (ofcourse, gaining 3 inches is a lot, maybe 2 inches is more realistic). Because he's on a movie set, I trust Brad not to wear his usual lifts. He looks around 2 inches taller than her, especially if you take into account how the photo is tilted.

Click Here

So yeah, again, I don't see a full 5'11" for Brad. Even though this is a highly speculative reasoning, a true 5'11" guy would look taller besides a 5'5" girl who's tip-toeing.
b-mint1994 says on 13/Mar/15
@around water John Wayne was nearly 6'4" and he apparently wore lifts. Some people aren't satisfied I guess.

6ftMagician says on 12/Mar/15
Great height-illusioning-physique in fight club - made him look a solid 5'11''.

Think peak he was 180cm. Now very close to that, probably less than 1cm loss today, guy clearly works out and is posture-conscious.
Dmeyer says on 11/Mar/15
Pizzaman says on 10/Mar/15
Rob, how you can explain he looks 1 inch smaller (even nearly 2 inch) than Bernthal during the entire end of the video Dmeyer posted? Thats some good angles and a long time frame. He even barely looks taller than Logan Lerman. Only possibility is that he didnt wear any lifts then and this is his real height?
[Editor Rob: I watched it all and thought they are very close.]
I agree at the end he looks 1-1.5in shorter but facing him in the béguining he looks easily as tall
truth2 says on 11/Mar/15
He is counscious that he is not solid above average (6ft0+), so he packs 2 inch lifts, still around 5ft10 at worst, possibly a weak 5ft11.
ZTL says on 11/Mar/15
He is 5'11" at least. Please stop with this 5'10" crap, people.
Voiceless Dental Fricative says on 10/Mar/15
The fact that a guy as height conscious as Pitt looks close with Bernthal is evidence that he's slightly under 5'11. Pitt always stands really well, and probably wears subtle lifts in his shoes. We know he likes the cuban heel.

Seeing Bernthal with Rob you will see that he is 5'11'" and Brad and Bernthal is very close in height. But I agree that Brad looked 1 inch shorter in one of the videos Dmeyer posted. It is interesting cause some sources have Bernthal as 5.10.5
Voiceless Dental Fricative says on 10/Mar/15
Pitt's height varies around Bernthal.

I think Pitt is more 5'10 then 5'11.

He packs wedge and forces his posture to appear taller.
Dmeyer says on 9/Mar/15
With bernthal can look 5'10.5-11.25
[Editor Rob: from looking at the video I think they are very close, I believe they'd measure within a small fraction of each other.]
Lift says on 9/Mar/15
I am myself 176 and wear boots with 2inch lift almost always and its not even hard to walk. So I am with shoes around 183. With athletic built it looka quite natural. I think Pitt is quite the same, for real

Didn't look that low in the film, no, but I recall he was wearing cowboy boots, been a while since I saw it.

rageagainstthemachine says on 9/Mar/15
This guy is a shape shifter. Most of the time he looks 5'11", others he can look 6 foot and sometimes he can look as short as 5'9". 5'11" or close to it seems to be the best bet though.

Andrea says on 6/Mar/15
Well, Arch, i saw you posting photos of people, alone and without anybody else, and saying "here he looks over 6' for sure" (not talking about Brad but in general)... How can you guess people's heights, without comparing height with someone (or something) else? Proportions are relative, what matters is the lenght from the ground to the top of the head...
Dmeyer says on 6/Mar/15

Like I'll say "Jimmy Stewart has the proportions of a lanky 6'3" guy". By that I mean typical lanky leg and relatively small upper body you characterise with it.
Arch Stanton says on 5/Mar/15
Thanks Heylo, yes there's so many arrogant types on here who think they're certain somebody is exactly the height they think they are as if they've formerly measured them. A clear agenda on here, most are trying to downgrade Pitt out of jealousy/insecurity. I really don't, I have no inclination to downgrade or upgrade people like that, I try to just say how they look to me. I watch a lot of films, and height perception can sometimes differ from film to film, and height doesn't always add up or make sense. Pitt's height really has looked all over the place throughout his career, he's not easy to gauge at all. He's one of the few actors I'm still not really sure about. Generally though I'd say more chance of nearer 5'11 than 5'9"!

Yes Andrea, I think it must be something wrong in the language barrier than you're taking "proportions" too literally as not meaning height. I tend to say "by his proportions" when I have a fixed idea in my height of the typical build and torso length/leg length of a guy of a given height. I'll often say "Look at his proportions, though, he looks nearer 6'4" than 6'2" " And I mean height, his build and body length, overall look..
184.3cm says on 5/Mar/15
No less than 179cm and no more than 180cm. 5'10.5-5'11 is his range im sure. Smaller than Willis (Many years ago) but a smidge taller than Clooney, dont kid yourself 5'9 range is garbage.
Christian says on 5/Mar/15
Talk to my collegue today again about when he worked with Brad on Kalifornia. He remembered him as 180 cm plus with normal sneakers on. He lifted up his hand and showed me how much taller Brad was than my 5'10'' collegue and it was a bit more than 1 inch. Of course this is a long time ago but he told me that Brad is not under 180 cm what he could tell.
dmeyer says on 4/Mar/15
When wearing cuban that give 1-1.5cm more than other actors. He lookss 182 si has to be near 180cm
Heylo says on 4/Mar/15
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

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!

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

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.
b-mint1994 says on 27/Feb/15
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".

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...

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:

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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"

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.
snatch says on 4/Feb/15
clooney said that about him being 6 foot 1 because clooney knows he's
taller than pitt and is just trying to make pitt seem taller in the meia

they are good friends why wouldn't a friend try to make another seem
the standard of hollywood

either then that the whole clooney saying he is 6 foot 1 is a satire and we know
george loves satires
Pierre says on 3/Feb/15
5'10 is a joke if Brad Pitt has no lift...
snatch says on 3/Feb/15
is not a weak 5 11

if he was a weak 5 11 then he would be noticeably taller than he was in that pic

he is a weak 5 10

and we don't even know if claudia is a full 5 11 if she is not a full 5 11 then that means
pitt is even shorter

if claudia is a 5 foot 10 gal and pitt was only a 1 to 2 inches taller then her
with shoes on while she was barefoot then pitt is no more then 5 foot 9 and half
2toes says on 2/Feb/15
The guy is a weak 5'11" MINIMUM. 5'10" is a joke.
Dmeyer says on 2/Feb/15
Click Here , better posture and angle pitt looks 1-2cm because of 2cm more shoes both 5'11
Dmeyer says on 2/Feb/15
Sorry for the tatum pic
Dmeyer says on 2/Feb/15
If you look well at all pics with schiffer not the one were her posture is bad or legs tilted wich make brad look 2in taller, when in equal posture pitt is about 0.5-0.75in taller if they are both 5'11 she is. 5'11.25ish shoes on and he is 5'11.75-6ft shoes wish make sens with a 1in shoes , i Will send a pic
Heylo says on 1/Feb/15
Dmeyer, That is Channing Tatum, not Brad haha!
Dmeyer says on 31/Jan/15
Click Here , in this pics Brad has a 0.7in more shoes he had a 1.75 in tan boots looks 5'11.25 with bad posture , so easy 5'11.75 minus the feetwere somewere 5'11
Jeff says on 31/Jan/15
@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.

PITT is 5'9 it's so obvious but people choose to believe what they want.
Celebheights 6'1.5"-6'2" says on 29/Jan/15
Just to show the photo with him by Jim Carrey again:

Click Here

Jim Carrey (who wouldn't wear lifts as he doesn't care about his height much)-6'1.25"-6'1.5"
Brad Pitt-5'11" (but no more.
ARGH says on 29/Jan/15
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?
Dmeyer says on 25/Jan/15
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.
Pierre says on 24/Jan/15
for me he's a ~183-184 cms guy with lifts and ~177.5cms barefoot.He seem a nice guy.
Dmeyer says on 24/Jan/15
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
ARGH says on 24/Jan/15
Dude is 5'11

but the question is why is a 5'11 man wearing lifts?
Pierre says on 23/Jan/15
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.

what do you say?GC and MD both bare foot, BP wearing shoes
Dmeyer says on 20/Jan/15
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.
jamie179cm says on 19/Jan/15
@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
@ sh "Be proud of being average". So you're not planning a career in Hollywood then :) Sorry mate but worship of the average is the opposite of what the whole modern media age is about. Be average, don't stand out and just get on with keeping your head down is NOT the 21st century way.
jamie179cm says on 19/Jan/15
@jeff yes but Wouldn't surprise if had hidden insole and look at him next to claudia if shes a legit 5ft11 he defo isn't 5ft11 can't hes in lifts Would be shorter than her
Emil 183 cm says on 18/Jan/15
Barefoot he looks 179-180 next to Edward Norton
Jeff says on 18/Jan/15
@Dmeyer. Maybe not 5ft11.5 but I don't think 181 is impossible. He looked it with solid 5'11 Jon Bernthal with normal footwear
david says on 18/Jan/15
5ft10 barefoot, plus lifs and heels almost 6ft.
Jeff says on 18/Jan/15
@jamie179cm. Depp at 5ft7.5, Bloom at 175, Pitt at 177. You're part of the serial-downloaders, bro. Rob himself said Pitt's shoes weren't suspicious on the Troy premiere picture. Yet he still manages to look a good 6ft in that one...
sh says on 18/Jan/15
still makes no sense
even if he is 5'10. why wear lifts? it's not as if he is surrounded by 6'4 guys. be proud of being average
