How tall is Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal's Height

5ft 11.25in (181 cm)

American actor best known for starring in movies such as Donnie Darko, Brokeback Mountain, End of Watch, Prisoners, The Day After Tomorrow, Nightcrawler and Source Code. He is quoted age 23 on jakegyllenhaal.com as saying, [now] "I'm happily 6 feet tall." and on the Podcast Mystery Show he 'closed the case' by saying to the host Starlee that he was 5ft 11.5...however, the case was reopened when Starlee appeared on the Conan O'Brien show, with Conan whipping out his tape measure and roughly measuring Jake as somewhere in the 5ft 11 range.

The only time he seemed tall to me is in prisoners next to Jackman he can pass for 5'11.25" only in this movie but generally I'd say he's around 5'10.75"
hr said on 19/Jan/17
5'10 1/2 at the lowest. 5'11 for sure IMO
nick92 said on 17/Jan/17
rob i know he measures at this height but youve just reduced 50 cents height and its more than just half an inch difference between them.......

Editor Rob: that looks quite close to me.
VO said on 16/Jan/17
I think he's 1,77. He really doesn't look tall. Needs an undergrade.
RainbowBlaster5 said on 15/Jan/17
1.79-1.81 seems right
S.J.H said on 15/Jan/17
Either 5'10 or 5'10.75 no surprise

he's 5'10. didn't look 5'11 in southpaw or october sky
6 foot guy with small head said on 11/Jan/17
Just saw him on Conan and he actually measured at 5'10" barefoot. With shoes 5'11". Rob watch the video.
James said on 7/Jan/17
@Keith. Correct, in the video without taking under consideration the hair, he looks 1.77 but he has his legs widely open losing at least 1 cm. So he is 1.78 at night and 1.80 in the morning. I think he should be downgraded to just 1.79.

I also remember his role in Prince of Persia and looked nowhere near 6 ft. In fact, he looked almost short, ridicolous height for a Prince of Persia. They should have chosen another taller actor.

5ft 10.75in
Evan said on 30/Dec/16
I think you're got him way too high. He is like 1.76-178 tops. Next to Tom Cruise, they look almost same heigh.
Keith said on 29/Dec/16
He got measured on Conan's show

Skip to 3:15

Personally I think he's at 5'10. On the show they had him at 5'11 but that's mostly because of his hair style
King of the hill 91 said on 25/Dec/16
He said whats he was or what he fourt he was measured on mythbusters as well he was measured twice maybe he is in fact five eleven and little bite 180cm strong To a weake 182cm no more no less full stop

5'11. he doesn't wear lifts
anon said on 21/Dec/16
Seems a pretty honest guy in general he said 6ft and then 5ft11.5 so not much out, He could have measured 6ft in shoes or thought he was 5ft11.5 and rounded up and the fact he agreed to let Conan get a tape measure out suggests he doesn't care much about it and is not telling a lie about his height like most celebs do some of you guys really believe most of these other celebs would agree to get somewhat measured on a show.

This estimate is pretty fair, His Low might be 180-181 no lower than a legit 5ft11, 5ft9 range is a joke
the average short said on 13/Dec/16
This guy is 5'9, just look at the tape measure, take off that hair and he's be 5'9 tops. He looks too short to be 5'11.
Friop said on 10/Dec/16
So 179-180cm mid day is most likely his height
Guest66 said on 8/Dec/16
Jordan87, Completely agree with you. And then again I think that the reason why he looked not much under Ledger on some pictures is because Ledger could have been just 6'0" flat.
Jordan87 said on 5/Dec/16
Curry has him by around 3.5". Curry 6'2, Gyllenhaal 5'10.5 by that Logic.

Jackman would be 3" taller than Jake if he wasn't leaning in. Jake 5'10.5, would more or Less make Ledger 6'0.5. Although Jake looks taller in some photos with Heath than Others.
llo said on 3/Dec/16
he can't be lower then 179 and no higher then 181

i'd go with 180

The mystery is not quite solved, unless people see him measured by a doctor. They could have held the tape crooked, who knows.
Giorgi said on 17/Nov/16
Rob, wouldn't you suppose that he could be more than 1 cm shorter than Jimmy Fallon? I saw him in a cop show sketch with Fallon and he struggles noticably to look even to him.
Editor Rob: Giorgi, sometimes Fallon has worn a bit thicker shoes, but I do think he is taller than Jake...half inch is very possible.

i dont think he is taller than dicaprio. 1.81 both
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Oct/16
Rob, between Gyllenhaal and DiCaprio who do you think is taller?
Editor Rob: I think both under a stadiometer would go over 5ft 11, always a chance Leo would have him by the thickness of a tiny fraction.
Johan said on 20/Oct/16
If Conan is even 6'3.5" as many think on his page then he would be 6'4.5" there in shoes next to barefoot Jake. So with his low eyelevel it might be around 5'11.5" there. So he is perfect there for judging his height. With his hair he even thought 6' was possible. I just can't see him being under 5'11".
mjkzero said on 18/Oct/16
Hey rob if you pause at 3:15 the measuring tape shows Jake to be roughly 5ft10 is this just the camera angle or does jake need a downgrade Click Here
Editor Rob: even with the tape being nearer the camera he still is above 5ft 10.

I believe since the tape is nearer and lower than the top of his head it's a certainty he is over 178cm. How much is debatable. Personally I think when measured he will clear 5ft 11 on the stadiometer.

@Editor Rob,

What do u think Jake's head size is?

Editor Rob: 9.5-9.7 inch

in my eyes he looks almost short 181 is the absolute tallest i can see him and 179 the lowest. he was probably measured at almost 182 first thing in the mornign and goes down to 180 at nightime. Bill paxton was easy 2 cm tallerin photos

Is 181 his morning height rob or at night?
Editor Rob: I think he'd measure it in the afternoon, a solid 5ft 11
D said on 16/Sep/16
1.80 morning barefoot height. Strong barefoot 1.79 the rest of the day. In custom shoes can reach 1.82. In sneakers 1.83 is possible. I really think so. ;))) might be wrong.
Judd said on 9/Sep/16
Rob actually i think the Conan O'Brien measurement isn't a reliable measurements. Maybe the posture of jake wasn't the best but the "stadiometer" used by Conan wasn't perfect straight...I would say it's not a good measurement of course
Editor Rob:
If they wanted it to be final, maybe a stadiometer would have been used....I think a tape measure was used because it wasn't meant to be such a final nail in the question, because there is room for error and discussion on the matter.
Willes189 said on 8/Sep/16
I could only imagine how awkward it would be if they surprised Tom Cruice on a live talk show and tried to get him measured (and take his shoes off). Jake was a good sport, not eveyone would do that, it's a touchy subject for some people, I wouldn't do it
mike said on 5/Sep/16
5'11.25 is possibly his exact height if you consider every variable.
Jack said on 22/Aug/16
180cm, no more.
Jordan87 said on 11/Aug/16
Hmmmmm......Good Points Rob, however at first glance it is difficult to evaluate( I am having the same Problem with Kristanna loken, I see her as 5'9.75 in your top pic, but most people including yourself respectively say she is 5'11 so I will try to apply this logic for Jake on her page).

Also Lets say Jake is something like 5'11, and was shown to be lower by Conan, i could see how some actors ( Maybe not Jake) would be pissed off.

I mean Imagine Sly, Arnold, and Tom Cruise getting challenged on Live air on their Heights, and having Conan actually measure them Incorrectly for the Worse. Id Imagine that would hit their Ego pretty hard.
Editor Rob: at least he went along with the running theme trying to figure out his height. Would a guy like Tom, Brad or Arnie ever do so?

Jake still needs a stadiometer measurement!
lord say hi said on 10/Aug/16
180cm
Jordan87 said on 10/Aug/16
He was Measured at only 5'10 on Conan in front of Live Audience in his Socks. Rob you should downgrade him. He was 5'10.
Editor Rob: Conan's eyelevel is around the top of Jake's head and he thought about 5ft 11.

This still shows him over 5ft 10 surely - That line is just over 5ft 11 as he stopped the tape at near 181cm.

The tape is still in front of his shoulder so it's closer to the camera than the top of Jake's head.

Take a little fraction from the tape for not perfectly straight but add a fraction on for the tape being closer to the camera than top of Jake's head.

Then ask him to stand at his tallest...I'd be surprised if he wasn't a little over 5ft 11 when properly measured.

I could appear at barely 169cm due to perspective, so it is easy to lose height in photos, when I'm a comfortable 173cm...

charlie said on 23/Jun/16
i believe he is 5 ft 11.5. reason for this is when he was on Conan being measured his height was measured incorrectly with the tape measure upright beside him.Thats a big no when measuring your height. You will always be almost 2 inches shorter when measured that way. Its not your true height. And the fact Jake was measured by Conan in the late afternoon 4pm so he would of shrank though out the day. Now many say he is 5 ft 9.5 to 5 ft 10. Now the tpe measure to the human eye said he was 5 ft 10 even but the tape was also bent a little and his back wasn't measured to the wall. Your back MUST be measured back to the wall for the best accurate measurement. The highest point on the head is to the back.Even when you get a can of spray and put it on your head facing the wall the can is not entirely covering your head its only covering half way.and your measurement will be shorter as much as 1 inch to and 1 1'2 inches. When you stand against the wall like doctors tell you to do your body is not free standing where we tend to slouch , slouch forward which gives the impression we are shorter. With the back to the wall and head back straight arms flat to the side and breath in and hold your breath you will get your true measurement.The back is straight neck is straight. legs locked straight. Even when you stand back to the wall and your legs are bent a little it will effect your height. Always stand straight like a board.You will find your height is 1.5 to 2.0 inches taller than how it was with a tape measure to your side.

Maggie G. said on 10/Jun/16
Conan show showed he's around 5'10" but the problem was that his feet weren't together. Go back and look. If his feet were together we're talking at least another 1". I'd put him at 5'11ish.

I would be confident in saying he would measure in the lower end of the 5'10-range.

Lynx said on 31/May/16
He's clearly below 5'10'', at least at night.
Click Here
Editor Rob: we can't draw a straight line because the top of his head is further away than the tape measure.

If that was true, he has a 4 inch eyelevel and I think most would agree he doesn't have a high eyelevel.
CS said on 26/May/16
If he's really in the 180.5 - 181 cm range at night then he's pretty much identical to me. It's always kind of interesting to see photos of celebs very close in height to me (or at least in my height range) so I can sort of see how I might appear to other people.

Also, on a side note I've seen some of his films recently and he's a very good actor. Really enjoyed the movies I've seen him in.
Christian said on 24/May/16
Next to Jimmy Fallon he looks 2 cm shorter, could be bad poster though but 180-181cm I think is correct. Have a look at 58 seconds in this clip. Click Here

Pause the video at the 3:14 min.
He looks 5 ft 10.5 in. But it was a night measurement, therefore he is 5 ft 11 in.
Kourosh said on 14/May/16
Google listed him 5'11. Google usually lists celebrities one or two inches taller than they actually are.
Moke said on 9/May/16
He's most likely around a strong 5'10 at evening/night. With Conan he stood upright. He didn't overdo it, but you gain only mm doing that anyway. Measured about 5'10.5. Conan gave him 5'11 which is a bit of a strech but still ok. imho. Wakes up at 5'11, maybe a few mm's more.
HB said on 8/May/16
I agree. In Southpaw I thought he looked 5'9"-5'10". I was surprised to see him listed as a strong 5'11".

charlie said on 5/Apr/16
By the way the Conan Video of Jake's measurement has been taken down off of YouTube.
charlie said on 5/Apr/16
Jake's real height is not what was listed on the Conan O' Brien show. Conan O' Brien show is filmed in the late afternoon 4pm. People shrink almost an nch throughout the day. Now he was measured incorrectly with the tape measure to the side. Even if the tape measure to the side shows he is 5' 10.5 does not mean he was that height on the show. Its an optical illusion. The proper and most accurate way to measure is back to the wall. Hands to your side feet together head straight neck straight. He n the morning is most likely 5' 11.5 closer to 6'. Never ever take a tape measure and measure your height with the tape beside you. Although it may appear the tape measure is higher than your head it is in fact level.

Measured on Live TV around the 5'11 mark and people are still saying 5'9,5'10 wtf.

User Demeyer met him and said they were eye to eye he must be at least 5'11 to accomplish that.
John said on 10/Mar/16
So much ignorance.
Most just don't understand 2D images and proportions related to scale. Here's the deal with this guy. HIS HEAD IS HUGE. Almost midget large(very common among female stars). His waste and chest are large and his torso is much longer than most people at 6ft, whose legs are usually long, necks long, head tall and narrow. You dont find that in his 2d image so your eye says short to medium.
Moke said on 10/Mar/16
Does this site give morning heights??? I thought is was like midday height, the height that you go to lunch with - like the average height of each individuals own specific height....
Jake...I'm afraid he was 5'10 during the show, 5'10.5 max. So 181 should be very close to his morning height.
Johno said on 23/Feb/16
Strong 5'10 guy.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 16/Feb/16
This guy is 5'9.5". I don't understand how he's still listed at 180+ after that Conan measurement. He's clearly sub 5'11", even 5'10" is pushing it IMO, it's the absolute MAX he could be.
cruser said on 9/Feb/16
So 5'10? I mean he is shorter than Bill Paxton
Johno said on 3/Feb/16
In that clip, the mark was at 5'11and in the distance shot, despite the swaying and twisting of the metal meaure, jake looked 0.5-0.75 inches under this mark in an casual stance however, since the measure was not dead straight and was twisted this will compensate for his casual stance. When i judged earlier at 5'10.75 that was due to my belief the measure mark was on 5'11.3 and did not consider that Jake's head was slightly tilted up nor did consider the twist and sway of the metal measure strip thus, Conan got a bit wrong when he stated 5'11.

5'10.25 [lower end of 5'10]

@andrea @rob this is the full picture of Alan Tacher 5'10 1/2 next to Jake gullenhal. I doubt that the shoes that Alan is wearing are big enough to add any lifts inside. He actually looks bigger with jake and you can also see the shoes that jake is wearing. What do you think Rob? Click Here

007 said on 13/Jan/16
From that video I saw him being exactly 5'11"(180.5cm), I used his eyebrows as a line to create a parallel line from his top of the head to the tape. The tape seemed to be slightly bend,but he wasn't holding the best posture so I believe the 2 can cancel each other out. The Conan's show is usually filmed around 4:30-5:30 pm, so very close to the minimum height by then. I believe Jake is 182cm in the morning and that he goes to no less than 180cm at night. Anything below 179cm(5'10.5") is just plain ridiculous, and he was willing to get measured, which only further proves that he hit the mark or close to it at the doctor's office in the morning. Great actor, I loved him in Donnie Darko. Do you agree with my measurement Rob?
Editor Rob: I would say a 5ft 10.75 or 11.5 range afternoon is less likelier than 11 or 11.25 range
Andrea said on 12/Jan/16

Bo said on 11/Jan/16
Hi Rob, you've said you doubt he'd measure under 5'11' but on the video link of Conan you posted in the description, he's clearly under 5'11", probably even under 5'10". Even with a camera advantage (the measuring tape being clearly behind him) there's no way he ever reached the 5'11'' mark without shoes.
I paused the video and captured the pics and the result barefoot beside the measuring tape is at most 5'9'' and a half, the hair top being at 5'10". Even his hand on the top of his head doesn't reach 5'11''. He clearly needs a downgrade to 5'9"1/2. Conan was very polite to say that he saw him near the 6' range.
Take a close look at the video, it's not often you get the luck of a celebrity standing straight barefoot beside a measuring tape. BTW, that means that 50cts is probably below 5'11'' barefoot, since he looks like 0.5 inches taller than Jake, he sould be 5'10". MGBY.
Click Here
Editor Rob: but you have to account for perspective, position of tape and camera.

It's like in the video I did, here is a still Click Here. I drew the perspective line, it's easy to see it because there is a wall/ceiling behind me giving a good idea of the perspective.

Even with Jake Click Here, the tape is nearer the camera than the top of his head (the camera is to the right and the tape to the right of Jake).
Aaron zamora said on 10/Jan/16
This is Jake next to Alan Tacher. Google has him as 5'11 but he claims 5'10 1/2. I don't think jake is 5'11 1/4. Click Here
Johno said on 6/Jan/16
On second thoughts, i see him around 5'10.75. I have seen Jake from a multitude of shots and angles in that Conan video and his head would be around 0.75 inches below 5'11.3 summit.

I can see why he stated his height as 5'11.5, i reckon he could easily measure that on his doctor's stadiometer in the morning.
Johno said on 5/Jan/16
He is around 5'10.5, wakes-up over 5'11 for sure.

Rob, is there any chance of him measuring 5'10 3/4 or 5'10 7/8? Or what do you believe that is the shortest that jake can be measured as?
Editor Rob: I doubt he'd measure under 5ft 11
dmeyer said on 16/Dec/15
181cm explain whi we were eye to eye
dmeyer said on 16/Dec/15
I agree robinson but near 183cm peak for hanks like 182.5cm
G said on 15/Dec/15
I saw him in beverlly hills couple times wearing flip flop and he is 6 feet for sure!

When 50 cent has 0.5in more shoes and posture then hé can look 1in smaller , but when equal conditions they look close

---

Think this is a reasonable summation?

Jake Gyllenhaal - 5'11.25"
50 Cent - 5'11.5"
Tom Hanks - 5'11.5" - 5'11.75" peak; 5'11" - 5'11.5" today
gian92 said on 12/Dec/15
Near marshall mathers he seem no more than 5'11
Paleman said on 9/Dec/15
Yeah I think he never looked quite as tall as 6 feet, more like strong 5'11...

I met the Guy we were eye to eye hé cant be under 5'11-11.5
dmeyer said on 2/Dec/15
180.5cm at very. Low aleast
joe@@ said on 2/Dec/15
below 5'11 think impossible, your body also seems to be built of course, most actors make use of anabolic jake seems natural
Rick said on 2/Dec/15
After watching the conan video it seems that he measures at 5'9.5. It could be the camera angle that makes it look that way but thats what I saw. He does have the build of a 5'10 guy though. He could actually be 5'11.25 though he just appears more of a 5'10 guy, 5'9 very minimum.
jtm said on 2/Dec/15
50 cent is 5'10 range. look at him with kobe bryant.
tk said on 1/Dec/15
The Conan measurement wasn't exactly what we could call "accurate" but he definitely seemed under 5'11'' there, probably 5'10.5'' at most.

At least, he must feel secure enough with his height to be measured on TV like this. And he is a good actor too.
ElDuderino said on 1/Dec/15
I don't know what the creator of this site is talking about, on Conan he was clearly below 5'11
Dmeyer said on 21/Nov/15
Click Here , Jake has 0.3in less shoes than 50cent who is not less than 5'11.75 and Yet stil looks only 0.5in smaller Jake is a 5ft 11 and change Guy like rob list him , from Conan video over 5'11.25 is unlikly but not under 5'11-11.25
Aaron Zamora said on 20/Nov/15
This is a full body picture of jake next to a 5'10 1/2 guy which proves that jake is no 5'11 guy. Click Here
Sammy Derrick said on 14/Nov/15
5'11-Conan O'Brein measured him and since he is 6'4,I'll go with his claim.
dmeyer said on 13/Nov/15
I think he is a hair shorter than he wakes 6ft/183cm and go to bed 5'11.25 or 11 1/8 180.5-181cm not 179 0r 182
Dmeyer said on 12/Nov/15
Click Here , in several pics head to feet looks close in height with légit 184cm ledger , this Guy has to be 5'11 to pull that off
Dmeyer said on 12/Nov/15
This Guy is 100 percent 168.5-9cm and likely 169cm Jake isnt forcing it and looks 11-12cm taller bang 180.5-181cm they had same shoes i was there , and was close to my height , that should proove 5ft11 range Click Here
crusher said on 12/Nov/15
Looks like a solid 5'10" to me. Short legs....
Dmeyer said on 11/Nov/15
Looking at pics he looks 2-3cm under 50cent he look 6cm under jackman he looks 10-11cm over penna when in good posture , he can look 3-4cm under gosling dosnt look more than 15cm under conan in shoes the Guy is 180-1cm , also was 4.5in taller than.a 5'6.5 friend and i met him we were eye to eye so 181cm is likely
MrMister said on 10/Nov/15
He was measured at 5'10 exactly. 5'11 is laughable when he looks 5'9 range on screen.
joe @@ said on 10/Nov/15
with the lowering of Heath Ledger he is no more than a flat 5'11 at most
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 5/Nov/15
hero said on 1/Nov/15
He is 5'11.

Come on people. It is odd that he was described as 6'2 early in his career. But he is for sure 5'11. How many A listers agree to be measured?

---

Right on. I think 181 cm is the best listing. He's one of the only guys on here we've ever seen agree to be measured on national TV. 5'11.25" is a good listing.
Allie said on 4/Nov/15
Solid 5'11. Taller than 5'9 range Taylor Swift, and taller than Anne Hathaway in shoes that I assume would give around 4-4.75 inches. I think the least you could argue is 179 but that may be starting to push it.
hero said on 1/Nov/15
He is 5'11.

S.J.H said on 29/Oct/15
He doesn't look any taller than 5'11 with 5'7 michael pena and even some picture he look 5'10ish with pena. I'll go for the taller impression that he was 5'11 and 5'11.5 more like few minutes after out of bed in the morning
MD said on 28/Oct/15
That's weird, because you seem to be clearly in the minority in not being able to see him under 5'11" from that live measurement.
[Editor Rob: I'm trying to take account of the camera and position of the tape.
]
Simon said on 26/Oct/15
Hey Rob, do you think he's possibly 5'10.3/4? Because he never looks a full 5'11, especially when Conan measures him he looked a little under.
[Editor Rob: based on that clip I personally struggle to see him under 5ft 11]
lelman said on 25/Oct/15
I think this is reasonable for him, he must have genuinely believed he was about 5'11.5" to get measured. Conan's on pretty late aint it? He could probably wake up near 6'0".
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 25/Oct/15
In my opinion the question here is not whether he's over 5'11", the question here is whether he's over 5'10". I think the answer is no.
Aaron Zamora said on 24/Oct/15
I forgot to mention that I'm 5'11 1/2 in the morning and I'm between 5'10 3/4 and 5'11 at night time.
Balrog said on 24/Oct/15
After seeing Conan's video, we can rule out 5'9'' range or even 5'10'' flat for him. I still disagree with Rob, in the video it suggest that he is somwhere between 5'10.5'' and 5'11''. 181cm is the max I can see him. His 5'11.5'' claim is fair though, he could be that in the morning and deeps under 5'11'' at night.
Aaron Zamora said on 24/Oct/15
Rob can you please comment back to this it's really important. I have a question for you. If I measure in between 5'10 3/4 and 5'11 barefoot how tall do I say that I am? Do i say 5'10 7/8 or do I just say 5'11? Do you think that the difference between Jake and I would be very noticeable or not?
[Editor Rob: I believe he would edge you.

In reality if you were between that zone, I'd just say 'about 5ft 11'.]
Sam said on 23/Oct/15
Could believe 182 cm, nearly 183 cm, maybe 179 cm at night after a long day.
tony t. said on 21/Oct/15
Solid 5'11.
david said on 20/Oct/15
Under 5'11, that's for sure.
amaterasu said on 20/Oct/15
He is 180-1 no doubt about it, but only in the morning.
Paulina said on 18/Oct/15
Rob any photo you google of Jake and Taylor Swift, their the same height. Even when she has flats on......So either Taylor is lying about being 5"10 and she's taller than she says, or Jake is 5"10.
Mexx said on 17/Oct/15
Guys, he must be at least 5'11, or else Taylor swift would be like 5'6-5'7 (if he was 5'9). He is taller than her by 2-3 inches.
Allie said on 17/Oct/15
He's taller than Taylor Swift when they were dating.. and the lowest you could argue imo for Swfit's height is 5'8.75 when you compare her with Karlie and her model friends..
amaterasu said on 16/Oct/15
KILLER SHRIMP how tall are you? 5'9.5" ?
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 15/Oct/15
Sorry but I'm calling BS on that Conan measurement. Just look at the way they "measured" him, they probably overmeasured him by a good 2 inches doing it like that.

Call me a downgrader, but I'm sticking with my 5'9.5" estimate for this dude, a legit 176cm guy. No way 5'11" range.
Nils said on 15/Oct/15
Wtf when they zoomed in he was at 5'10 mark, and when they zoomed out and u could see clearly where conan was holding was above his hair xD
i call CHEAT
ASAP said on 14/Oct/15
He is 5'10. Look at the 3:13 mark.
MaskDeMasque said on 14/Oct/15
In that video it looks like he's 5'11. but his way of measuring isnt truly accurate, plus his hair, ande he was defintely shorter than 5'11 Paxton in Nightcrawler(who i'm pretty sure is 5'11 as he lookd no more than an inch taller than 5'10 Billy Bob). 5'10.5 is my best estimate.
the shredder said on 14/Oct/15
Rob , his weight? 175?
[Editor Rob: maybe in that 175-8 zone]
hero said on 13/Oct/15
Exactly. How many other A listers are willing to be measured? And without their shoes on. 5'11 is a very good height. 5'9 1/2 is average American male height
Mat 5'10 said on 12/Oct/15
Rob do you think we can trust Connan's judgement?
[Editor Rob: there was enough in that video for me to think Jake is nearer a strong 5ft 11 range than being sub 5ft 11.

I think he probably did get a 5ft 11.5 measurement at one point, maybe it was earlier in the day like 10-11am.]
Sonny Black said on 12/Oct/15
This is surprising, I thought he was like 5'10.
nyc said on 11/Oct/15
What's with all the debate here? Jake said he was 5'11.5" and was willing to go on a talk show in socks and be measured. Watching the video he was also clearly surprised to be called 5'11" and was quick to point out his hair is adding height when Conan said 6'0".

He is an intelligent person, and anybody lying wouldn't subject themselves to being measured. All this nonsense about being less than 5'11" makes me question people's critical reasoning. I'd say he's spot on 5.11 1/2" when measured at a doctor's office in the morning.
fff said on 11/Oct/15
He is 178 flat, Im sure , Yes, He may seperated his leg, but the tape was slant
JJLA said on 11/Oct/15
I said it once and i'll say it again:

Click Here

Here you go, 5'9.5 at night, solid 5'10-5'10.25 in the morning, 5'11 in casual/running shoes, sub 6' in discreet lifts... Has a good frame forming a prominent V, thick upper body, well proportioned lower body, hips not too wide, etc.

Jared leto is a weak 5'9, and MM is a low to mid 5'10 (compare with Damon and also with Leto in Dallas Buyers club)

IF we're assuming the listed height should be bare feet then this is the most accurate estimation you can find about jake.

Then, looking at the shot from the Conan video:

Click Here

It's clear from these captures that he is between 5'9 and 5'11, it's hard to pin exactly where though.

I met him in LA two years ago at the Griffith Observatory and he is a solid 5'10 in his running shoes, I am 5'10 in casual shoes and standing level with him my eyes were pretty much matched up with his.

If you want to satisfy some personal ego praise you have for him, then I guess keep the listing where it's at- after all it is your site, but there should be a better more accurate resource for measuring celebrity heights if this is the case.
Jug said on 10/Oct/15
According to the Conan clip, he is no more than 5'11. Looked 5'10 to me. So Heath Ledger was not more than 6 feet.
Jason said on 9/Oct/15
5'11.5" with shoes on. A solid 5'10.5" flat. Photos don't lie.
[Editor Rob: that's true, I'm actually 6ft 1 nowadays]
Sam said on 9/Oct/15
Yeah this looks spot on again. Always thought he looked in that 180cm-181cm range which is about as fair as you can get for him!
Hypado said on 8/Oct/15
Jake Gyllenhaal's Height is 5ft 11.25in (181 cm)

My final guess too Rob, i agree.
Sam said on 8/Oct/15
I believe almost all talk shows including Conan's tape from between noon and late afternoon...practically none tape that close to their broadcast time.
Sam said on 8/Oct/15
Bradley Cooper's another example of a guy who can look tall in some films but in American Sniper did not, with a lot of six foot and six foot plus guys around he looked kind of average.
hero said on 8/Oct/15
179/180.

Come on guys. No way he is shorter than 5'10 and a half
Powerhouse said on 8/Oct/15
@ the shredder... That's interesting, I went for my yearly check up last October and they weighed me at 210lbs (i'm a weight lifter i always feel i have to explain that haha) and then measured me. The nurse said I measured 5'6.5, now i've measured my self with a book against the wall several times at 5'7.75 in the evening and 5'7.5 at night (I wake up at a hair over 5'8), and even had my friend measure me and he measured 5'7.5 and this is the most accurate way of measuring height. The tool they used was like a ruler on the wall but like 6 inches off the ground.
shoe said on 7/Oct/15
No, the listing before is better, I dont think Jake dips below 181 cm at all, remember Conan´s eyelevel isn´t high enough to read it accurately. And plus the tape is closer to the camera than Jake. Jake was just joking when he said "the hair, the hair". Because his hair isn´t adding anything at all slicked back like that, but Conan took it into account.
sohlman said on 7/Oct/15
5'10 max plain as day at the 3:14 mark.

He's about 5'11", case close! (of course it's never closed for some of y'all) ;)

Funniest video on height I ever seen , I love it lol.
the shredder said on 7/Oct/15
the funniest thing happened to me today , I was at the Dr only 2 hours up , The nurse took my height , short girl about 4'10 , She told me , " you are 65 inches , about 5'5 " . I laughed then looked for myself and it cleary showed me closer to 5'6 1/2.
[Editor Rob: that's definitely where some mistakes come from, the nurse calling out the wrong number!]
da_truth said on 6/Oct/15
He's definitely at most 5'11 .. he was a good inch shorter than 50 cent in South Paw.
Allie said on 6/Oct/15
Solid 5'11. 180's my guess. Also was that Conan thing during the night or evening Rob? I don't watch his show..
[Editor Rob: I'm not sure the time they film these shows at, I usually thought they were done earlier and then broadcast at night?]
James C said on 6/Oct/15
I honestly believe that at some point in his life, he was measured 5'11 1/2. Most likely at an physical at the doctors, Like if I was listed on here I would be 5'9" but at sports physicals I've been measured at 5'9 1/2 twice at the same place from I remembered they both been after an long day at school and it would take 30 minutes to drive there, though I've been measured at 5'9 countless times, and even 5'9 1/4 all of them around the same time and same amount of time I've been awake.
Christian said on 6/Oct/15
Rob I saw you wrote in a comment below that Jake could be 5.11.5 having brunch. I thought all the heights here are mid-day heights?
[Editor Rob: I'm saying that the 11.5 could have been a valid measurement, maybe he did it at 10-11am, then by afternoon drops another fraction.]
Ray said on 6/Oct/15
After watching Rob's YouTube video on this I believe Jake is 5'11..either way 70 or 71 inches is still tall. The only movie I thought he looked shorter in was southpaw which I would guess he was 5'9. Maybe it had a taller cast of actors. Some actors can appear tall even with a taller cast though. Kit Harington is only 5'7ish and always appears tall on GOT even against a tall cast. Also 5'10 Thomas jane looks tall no matter what movie he's in. (Rob, do you have any guess why some actors like Kit and Tom can appear taller?)
[Editor Rob: from watching GOT, the more I see of Kit the more in the 5ft 7 range looks likely, some of the knights watch guys are short or average...]

He's 5ft11in.
AZ1.83cm said on 6/Oct/15
Rob I mean this with no disrespect but why only downgrade him 1/4 of an inch? I honestly believe that even you know that he is shorter than 5'11 but you feel as if you dropped him lower people would think that your height estimations are way off. I don't agree with that I honestly believe that you are awesome at what you do, but in this situation I personally don't believe that he is 5'11 I agree that he's around 5'11 with hair but that is all and I am sure that others agree with me as well. Much love from Cali!
[Editor Rob: as I say, unless you put him under the stadiometer, you could still try to argue he was 5ft 11.5, 11.25, 11 or 10.75...]
outlook said on 5/Oct/15
How long does one have to lie down for before they are back at their full height? It was cool to see this site get a mention on Conan. I think Jake Gyllenhaal is probably at least 5'11 considering his height in relation to conan's.
[Editor Rob: you really need 3-4 hours to get a good chunk of your morning height, but you could lie down 2-3 hours and easily get a half inch back.]
boxin said on 5/Oct/15
ROB, How does it feel to see your website on national television, being promoted?
and ofcourse.....That tape measuring stick didn't MEASURE ****
[Editor Rob: thanks to Starlee for mentioning it by name a couple of times and the guy in her podcast who kept popping by this page and being mystified by his height, as much as people probably still are...]
lol said on 5/Oct/15
The tape is next to him, at around 3:16 on the youtube video(slow it to see better) he is turning his head and you can actually see a better comparison,plus Conan is not keeping str8 the measure tape and he is bending it a little bit.But he is a strong 5'10 for sure 5'11 out of bed
Copper said on 5/Oct/15
@Jayce91
It sounds like you aren't 5'10" and more like 5'8"-5'9", watch the video closely Jake Gyllenhaal puts his hand on his head to hold down his hair and his hand doesn't even touch the 70 inch mark of the tape measure, the top of his head is in between 68 and 69 inches.

How is he still listed 5'11".25?
Sam said on 5/Oct/15
Would be great if Gyllenhaal would unseat Bieber as top page if only for a week, the latter is kinda a joke IMO...as for Conan measuring more debated celeb statures such as Sly, Arnold, Cruise or Pitt, I doubt their publicists would ever allow that.
[Editor Rob: he did, check the last week Top 50...I mean usually Bieber is hard to beat in that chart but Jake absolutely TROUNCED him...

you might need to ask them to take socks off, as lifts in socks is something you wouldn't rule out...even I thought 'Big G' walked funny the second time I seen him, kind of like a Penguin....]
Sam said on 5/Oct/15
The way he looked next to Ryan Gosling is consistent with Gyllenhaal being 5'11.25", a bit more than an inch shorter.
jtm said on 5/Oct/15
i doubt he's even 5'11. looks no more than 5'10 to me.
MD said on 5/Oct/15
It's funny that only a quarter-inch comes back off, when he's probably not even a full 5'11". lol He should have never been at 5'11.5" in the first place, so taking off a quarter-inch doesn't do anything.
Jayce91 said on 5/Oct/15
All these insecure guys who are trying to put him down make me laugh. Jake actually looks every inch of his 5ft 11.5 claim, I'm a genuine 5' 10" myself and I know what I look like in pics and videos so I know for a fact that he's taller than me because I NEVER look as tall as he does. Not even when I'm wearing my classic Timberland boots which are supposed to give you a bit of height boost being slightly chunkier than most boots I've tried.
Anything under 5ft 11 is totally absurd for him.
Case closed.
Gx79 said on 4/Oct/15
Rob he's 5'11.5
beej said on 4/Oct/15
I think Conan saw that Jake clearly wasn't 5' 11.5" or even 5' 11", but he just wanted to be nice. At best, Jake is 5' 10", but of course being surrounded by so many people who lie about their heights, he's convinced himself that he's taller and naturally will look taller too because so many in Hollywood are 2-3" shorter than what they claim to be. This is why you often hear, "So and so isn't as tall as I thought he/she was!"
Gx79 said on 4/Oct/15
Truth he's 5'11.5 truth is new Steve or he is Steve
lol said on 4/Oct/15
Strong 5'10 for sure 5'11 out of bed don't know why robs keep listing him at 5ft 11.5
[Editor Rob: I don't think anybody can really think he is 5ft 10-10.5, surely not :)

oh, also I wanted to show in a video how his feet position wouldn't really effect his stance: Shoulder Width video]

He's a strong 5ft 10in, that's all folks, CASE CLOSED.
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 4/Oct/15
The great mistery of the site has ever been Arnold height
It can vary from 5ft 6 to 6ft 3 hahahahaah
When them sent him to Conan,i will be really happy
the truth said on 3/Oct/15
I just watched that Conan clip and by my estimates, he wasn't even 5' 10", possibly even 5' 9.5".
C said on 3/Oct/15
I think I'm turning into Viper, lol.
C said on 3/Oct/15
Based on where he touched his hair when he was measured on Conan, I would say he is under 5'11''. I think he is 5'10'' and change.
amaterasu said on 3/Oct/15
Rob, even consider every perspective from the measurement it is pretty clear now that Jake is 178-9cm guy. Click Here this shot doesn't prove anything much, as the camera level is lower than top of his head, so it creates an illusion that his head is touching end of a tape. Click Here 5'10.25-0.5" without hair. Awesome dude btw, has very nice character.
[Editor Rob: you posted a still which actually reinforces he is in 5ft 11 range because his eyes are above 5ft 6 against that tape, and the tape is still in front...

he doesn't have a short eyelevel, the average for a 5ft 11 man is a little more than the average, so roughly 4.7 range.

plus a little more when properly measured, you can see why I'd go with 181 range.]
The Exorcist said on 3/Oct/15
He would probably measure a little higher than 5'11" on a stadiometer. The tape measure would undercut it a little as it can't measure the highest point of your head.

5'11.25 could be it.
Dmeyer said on 3/Oct/15
179cm is arguable from the vidéo with conan but i met the Guy we were eye Level so no léss than légit 5'11 possibly 11.25
grizz said on 3/Oct/15
I apologize,I did not mean to dare you to measure him,but I dared Conan to do it. :D

It would be really fun to see that measuring thing become a trend among celebs.
One day we might witness Sly's mental breakdown on live television as he was measured a couple of inches below 5'11
[Editor Rob: for guys like Sly and Arnie, they are past their peak heights, even Tom is seemingly worried about a quarter inch loss in his 50's.]
miko said on 3/Oct/15
I think its fair to say fresh out of bed he's close to 6 foot. 5'11 range later in the day.
hero said on 3/Oct/15
He was closer to 5'11 than 5'10. 180cm.

Now the mystery is over. Pretty funny
Andrea said on 3/Oct/15
So, Rob, basing on the video and everything, do you rule out 100% 179 range for Jake? Would you bet your life he'd be over 180 under a stadio?
[Editor Rob: for me, I can't believe he'd measure 179 range, it doesn't add up from what even Conan saw, he had a pretty good perspective being 6ft 5 in shoes there so his eyes were in a better position than the camera.]
Aaron zamora said on 3/Oct/15
Hopefully they invite you to the show as a special guest and also invite someone like Sly, Tom Cruise, or Vin Diesel for you to measure! That would be sweet. You can end up having your own tv show!
[Editor Rob: the chance of any of those 3 willing to be measured is slim :)]
grizz said on 3/Oct/15
If Conan really wanted to pull out an actor whose height creates heated discussion, Jake is one of least important guys for that matter.
I dare you to measure (using stadiometer, not this silly tape measure thingy) Arnold Schwarzenegger or Taylor Swift - Arnold lost a lot, yet claims height at his prime while Taylor realistically adds 2 inches.

I think 5ft11.25in is fine for Jake.
[Editor Rob: the mystery of Jake's height has been picked up on other media, and when Starlee did her podcast it kept the interest on him...I mentioned it 10 days ago in an article, see the last sentence Here about how I said the mystery not being solved until he was measured.

Then he went on Conan...

If Jake it's only 5ft 11,there is no chance to Conan being 6ft 4
Jake Barefoot was taller than Conan eyeline in shoes

Well, Rob, in your picture you can see that the tape isn't even standing perfectly vertical so the top of it is probably closer to 180 than 181, if anything... And that's around his hair level, so his head is probably at least one centimeter under that, which means 179 is not impossible... Unfortunately, that clip really did not solve anything! Why not give him 5'11 flat?
[Editor Rob: I think 181 is probably fairest mark. Now if he were to ever go under a stadiometer, that's going to be the end of it!]

5'11 i would have said but the quarter inch over is fair. Can't believe they actually measured him, i couldn't stop laughing when that guy screamed;"Take off your shoes". Jake is a good sport.

@Dan j

A quarter inch i agree but a half inch is noticeable if you are close in height to someone. For instance if Jake was to stand next to a Mads MIkkelsen you would notice.

I took a look at Conan's measurements, he looked exactly 5'10. Which is not short! But almost exactly 70 inches. I don't know how Conan got the extra 1.5 inches. I am exactly 69 inches and my eye level is 65. Jakes eye level was exactly 66 inches to the tape measure with upright posture. It's great that be did this, I think he claimed his height with 1.5 inch shoes which would make him .5 shy of 6 foot.

Hey guys, we are famous, mentioned on Conan. :D kudos Rob, you're a real expert.
Aaron zamora said on 3/Oct/15
He was measured at 5'11 but with his hair. You don't count hair when you say your exact height. If you watch closely to when he placed his hand on top of his head to flatten his hair, you count from the bottom of the fingers not the top and he is clearly either 5'10 flat or in the 5'10 range. He needs a downgrade Rob.
xaoxio said on 2/Oct/15
sorry folks, its proves nothing. incorrect measurement. bring back 5'11.5''
xaoxio said on 2/Oct/15
Rob, im sorry but ffs! dont you see that his legs are far apart? thats incorrect measurement! his feet has to be put together and only then u could measure him correct. im shocked u dont know that
[Editor Rob: it makes little difference, 1-2mm. I've measured myself like that before to compre.]
devin said on 2/Oct/15
Look he 5'11.5 so who tf cares
hero said on 2/Oct/15
Its solved. He is 5'11. At least he allows himself to be measured unlike Pitt or Cruise who wear lifts
Ethan said on 2/Oct/15
Rob, how is he not 5'10? Here he is getting measured on Conan:
Click Here
Just because Conan doesn't know what 70 inches is, and that he had said that Jake was 5'11, doesn't mean that 5'11 is his actual height...
He is exactly 5'10, measured on screen as 70 inches with full posture (now it's fact). It's time for him to get a big downgrade Rob! The evidence is there, look for yourself!
[Editor Rob: click here...that line was the top of tape which he had a fraction over 5ft 11. The close up in the clip has the tape nearer the camera. You can't draw a horizontal line on the close up and not take account perspective...]
cole said on 2/Oct/15
@Editor Rob: From 5'11.5 to 5'11.25 to 5'11.5 and back to 5'11.25 again! Jake's had a rough couple of months lol. At least now it's settled at "about 5ft 11", no more of this 5'10/6ft nonsense... Has there been a significant increase in traffic since the site was mentioned on Conan?

@Dan J: Then there's really no need for you to comment here... If you respond to this, you care about the quarter to half inch debate.
[Editor Rob: yesterday not really... but a few news sites reported the Conan encounter the following morning so today his page got a lot of views and maybe this weekend he will stand tall ahead of Bieber in the weekly top 50 most popular...]
mr.rashid said on 2/Oct/15
since the Conan show was at late night, if Jake's posture was straight up and two feet slightly together. i think he would've measured at 5'11-11.25" range barefoot at Night.
5'11 Stud said on 2/Oct/15
Yay! Mentioned in Conan! Conan is an awesome dude and was trying to help him as much as possible.
Richter, his co-host, was the total opposite, what a douche, "take your shoes off". I mean come on.
Dan J said on 2/Oct/15
I love that people here are debating over a quarter to half an inch. Sorry guys, but it's humanly impossible to be that visually precise. It's the equivalent of eyeballing the speed of a car going 31-33mph.
Jon said on 2/Oct/15
Mystery solved. He turned out to be 180 cm spot on during Conan's show measuring!

Andrea said on 2/Oct/15
To me, he looks much closer to 5'10 than 5'11 (let alone 5'11.25), at least in this frame: Click Here
Anyway, you made Conan measure him, Rob! I mean, they talked about you and the site on a famous tv show! :) Conan should probably buy a stadiometer and then he's ready to measure every celebrity that goes to his show! People like Vin Diesel or Sly would probably insert lifts in their socks and have a good sleep before getting in the studio, if that would happen :)
[Editor Rob: if I had a chat show, my gimmick would be the measuring platform.

There's no way Sly would wear lifts in his socks though ;)]
mr.rashid said on 2/Oct/15
@Frankie,
in the third pic him and Paxton seems close in height, tho Paxton might edge him out by a cm.
dave c said on 2/Oct/15
Saw Conan last night when he pulled out the tape measure. It looked like 5ft 9 1/2-5ft10 tops. The man has a lot of hair. Conan said 5ft 11 but it was easy to see that's not the correct measurement. Press the hair down and he was in the 5'9"-5'10" range.
BT said on 2/Oct/15
@Editor Rob: They didn't exactly keep that tape straight. Granted Jake wasn't forcing his posure, but bending the tape like that makes the outcome a bit generous. I don't know if Conan locked it at a fraction over 71 inches, but if we assume he did, Jake looks under it even when the tape wasn't straight. But still, good on Jake for doing this, probably not many celebs would. The next phase is getting him on a stadiometer!

Based on this (and a lot of other evidence) I wouldn't go over 5'11.
[Editor Rob: I posted a few comments ago that I think 181 is a good possibility for him...at least we can throw away the 5ft 10 and 6ft marks.]
mr.rashid said on 2/Oct/15
if he was measured at 5'11", wouldn't he get a 5'11-11.25" listing instead?
[Editor Rob:
I wouldn't be surprised with the 181cm mark if he measured on a stadiometer, that could be the fairest mark to put him back on. Here is a still Here, at least now we know the very top of that tape was 5ft 11.25ish...of course standing under a stadiometer many can stand a fraction taller.

catch Jake when he's about to eat his Porridge and you might find him closer to 6ft...and 5ft 11 when he's tucking himself in, and 5ft 11.5 when having brunch...]
Frankie said on 2/Oct/15
Rob, now that you have solid proof that Bill Paxton is 5' 11.5', I think Gyllenhaal needs an urgent downgrade. I just saw NIGHTCRAWLER, in which both actors share several scenes. Gyllenhaal looks like 1 1/2 or even 2 inches shorter than Paxton all the time. Take a close look at the following pics and judge by yoursef:

Even if Paxton had some shoe advantage in all those images, it is IMPOSSIBLE that both are the same height. Gyllenhaal does never look any taller than 5' 10.5'' (around 5' 11'', as Conan O'Brien said).
kevin said on 2/Oct/15
haha he really was on conan and was actually measured barefeet... conan said about 5ft11 and it looked like hes that height without hair and stuff... anyway super cool guy to do this kind of joke
Freakyguy666 said on 2/Oct/15
Looks like JG was on Conan and tried to put to rest the speculation about his height. Unfortunately it wasn't very scientific but it appears that he's 5'11".
Suckit said on 2/Oct/15
Conan said he's 6 foot
dat guy said on 2/Oct/15
he was measured by conan, they talked a lot about this site and this page

Eric said on 2/Oct/15
If you actually pause where Conan is measuring him he's 5'10.5 at the top of his hair- so even accounting for bad posture and end of day- I think he's 5'11 max
Savannah said on 2/Oct/15
MYSTERY SOLVED
JAKE GYLLENHAAL WAS JUST MEASURED ON THE CONAN O'BRIEN SHOW IN PERSON. WE HAVE FOOTAGE. HE IS 5'11 WITHOUT SHOES ON.

Spooty said on 2/Oct/15
Hmm, he just appeared on Conan and Conan measured him without shoes and got him at around 5'11. It didn't look like the most accurate measuring job, but still...
[Editor Rob: I wonder, would an actor like Sly or Tom ever do that...fair play to Jake.]
Ahmad said on 1/Oct/15
5'11.5'' as seen on Conan
