James Franco's Height is 5ft 10.5in (179 cm)

American actor best known for roles in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Spider-man and Freaks and Geeks. In a French Magazine there was an article where it's written Franco says he's almost '182cm'. Celebheights read another article, from LA Review of Books where Franco says his height and weight: "I'm 5'11; I think 185 pounds"

Comment on the Height of James Franco

Rob would you rule out 178cm for him? He can look just 5'10" a lot of times, especially when he stands with 5'11 guys like Pitt and Rogen.
[Editor Rob: he can look 178 or 9]

Rob how tall to you think his and Daves brother Tom is? Click Here
[Editor Rob: looks like he'd be in 6ft range]

I think he's 5'10 flat
G. said on 28/Jul/15
he obviously wear lifts. he's between 5'8" and 5'9", trust me.
here's a photo with him and Thaila Ayala, 5'9" brazilian actress, which both apparently are barefeet.

Perhaps he's not really 5'10.5'', but I think now way he's under 5'10''
lelman said on 2/Apr/15
It's funny how people like to forget that Pitt is a bit of a cuban/lift wearer, I wouldn't trust any photos of him for comparison. Plus, Franco is dropping a bit of height, and Pitt is wearing a hat.

I think Franco is 5'10.25"-5'10.5" and Pitt is 5'10.75"-5'11", and what you are seeing is about a 0.5" difference, exaggerated by external factors.
Jacob said on 13/Mar/15
I don't buy Franco's 5.10.5 listing, 5.10 at most. He also likes to wear lifts and big boots, look at this pic, it's ridiculous.. Click Here
Heylo said on 22/Feb/15
Look at Naked & Afraid where they both (James Franco & Seth Rogen) are naked and standing next each other several times. If seth really is 5'11 then James must be closer to 5'10.

James Franco is most likely 177-178cm. Brad Pitt also looked 2 inches taller than Franco and Brad are supposed to be 5'11...
Anon said on 21/Feb/15
5'9", from looking at Paul's pics with Pitt.
Axaros said on 20/Feb/15
Thanks Guys :)! Personally i claim always 5'10'' beacause in shoes i'm 5'11''and i believe to look more than 5'9'', however, this site also the heights of the actors are those of the evening ?
Axaros said on 14/Feb/15
Rob i'm 5'10.5 at the morning and 5'9.75" at the evening. How i could claim?
[Editor Rob: I think many guys in your position would rather than saying 5ft 9.75 just round to 5ft 10. Me personally I'd probably say 'almost 5ft 10'.]
S.J.H said on 1/Feb/15
Paul, Brad Pitt often wore lifts to boost up height like a 6ft guy. While 2 of your pictures had disadvantages for Franco. I admit Pitt could be a little over 5'11 like 5'11.25 and Franco could be a solid 5'10 guy like Andrew Garfield whom i met in NYC a humble 5'10.25 guy
Paul said on 27/Jan/15
Franco with Brad Pitt at Sundance. If Pitt is 5'11, Franco is 5'10 max if not smaller. Please have a look:

Then how about this Rob? Is the camera angle bad? Their height difference seems a solid inch in that picture. I'm not trying to downgrade Franco, I just want to point their difference. What d'ya think?

Click Here
[Editor Rob: from looking at more of them together I think seth is a bit taller, but I'm not sure he'd be a full inch taller.]
dame said on 13/Jan/15
Rob look at what I've found:

Doesn't this seem more like a 2cm difference between Rogen and Franco?
[Editor Rob: it looks like that, but it's outside on ground that might not be very even.]

5'10.5" is the minimum that he is.
MD said on 30/Dec/14
I completely agree, Marcus. I've seen Franco look at tall as Rogan...but only when Rogan's in regular shoes, and Franco in heeled shoes (like in the picture above). It's becoming clearer to me that Rogan has a good inch on Franco when they are in similar footwear.
marcus said on 29/Dec/14
rob every scene with seth rogan he's an inch taller, there's even a scene in the interview where seth rogan is barefoot while james franco is wearing oxfords(3cm heel) and their the same height. Unless seth rogan is 6ft, then james franco is no more than 178cm, a solid 5'10
John said on 23/Dec/14
Rob,how much would Amber's heels give?
[Editor Rob: close to 3 inches, but also might be losing an inch in posture?]
MD said on 22/Dec/14
I'm looking at my comment from back in April, and it's weird to read, as James clearly looks shorter than Rogan in their recent press junkets. James is not short, but I'm really thinking he's just 5'10".
james said on 19/Dec/14
He's 5'10 barefoot and 5'11 with footwear with inch thick soles
Sponk said on 27/Nov/14
In Pineapple Express James Franko looks like dwarf next to some actors, perhaps they are 195cm+, yet i think that he looks 174-175cm(5ft8.5-5ft9) range there because of a TERRIBLE POSTURE but if he stay straight, can be strong 177-178cm(5ft10) like Set Rogen (sometimes 2 inches taller because James barefeet in some scenes).
For me its OBVIOUS that Franko is 177 in the midday and Set is 178(where the hell you see strong 5ft11???)
Norma26 said on 14/Oct/14
Rather it is depended on the footwear Seth Rogen wears he did look about 2 inches taller than James Franco in Pineapple Express I'll say he looks shorter on tv than he does in reality.
Tim said on 14/Oct/14
Next to David Oyelowo in rise of the appes he looked 5cm taller. And it makes sense about Franco's height, consider that David is not legit 5-8... So Franco is about 176-177. I also think that hes exactly same height as Orlando Bloom, they look pretty similar in that way to me.
Mike T said on 11/Oct/14
He is no more than 5'9". Look at him next to Judd Apatow, he's listed at 174. And Seth Rogen is no more than 5'10".
(S)aint 6'1 said on 7/Oct/14
Going off of freaks and geeks when he is around Seth rogan he looks 5'10.5-5'11
TJE said on 5/Sep/14
I can believe 5'10.5. Also, I don't understand how everyone is saying that he can't be 185 lbs. I mean nobody shares the same exact build. I'm 235 lbs 5'10 and I look 190-200. I have a 5'9 friend who's 151 and has a thin-average build. James here is 1-1.5 inches taller than he is so he could be at least 165 lbs. James is also a little stocky so he could be like 175-180 lbs, so 185 lbs isn't impossible.

MD said on 21/Apr/14
It's weird, because he was on Saturday Night Live as a surprise guest with Seth Rogan, and they've been looking almost identical in height, lately. It makes me think Rogan is more likely somewhere between 5'10" and 5'11" than a solid 5'11".
bandet said on 17/Apr/14
Chris 182cm..... You say when you think of him as under 5ft10 it makes your brain say 'NO''re one stable unsuperficial person aren't you!!
Chuckie Cheese 2 said on 28/Mar/14
He's a 5'10 guy who can look pull off 5'11. His natural build is 160 -165 pounds, so unless he built some major muscle for certain roles, I doubt 185 would be his typical weight.
Balrog said on 17/Mar/14
He didn't look over 5'10" next to Dafoe but with other people can pull off 5'11"
MD said on 17/Mar/14
@NorthernEurope, while I still think it's possible that he could be 5'10", that is not really his personal website (if even he has one).
NorthernEurope said on 14/Mar/14
According to his website he is 5'10.

pauly e said on 6/Mar/14
he looked less than the listed height in "knocked up" compared to Katherine Heigl. I do think he is a bit over 5'10 however. i know this is a height site but I feel compelled to comment on his 185 lbs claim. No chance he is 185 lbs. 5'10.5" and 185 at a low bodyfat is pretty jacked....
Edlt2882 said on 18/Feb/14
I saw Franco at Comic Con. If I stand at 5'7", the Franco is 5'9.5". He seems to wear thick sole shoes that make him appear almost 5'11".
MD said on 11/Feb/14

Thanks for those pictures. That clears that up.
Chris 182 cm said on 10/Feb/14
He's so cool that you just can't see him as below 5'10. When i see him and think he might be under 5'10, my brain immediately says NO and forbids me to think in these terms. It's a physics thing i think.

Franco is not under 5'10''. Current listing is perfect. Statham could be just 174cm though.
MD said on 7/Feb/14

Okay, so maybe he is a bit smaller than I thought (though still not "tiny" by any definition). Here he is with Jason Statham:

Maybe Statham is in lifts, or maybe James really is something between 5'9" and 5'10" instead of being between 5'10" and 5'11".
Balrog said on 6/Feb/14
Ted, Franco is for sure 5'10''. Can look 5'11'' aswell. And he did looked 185 pounds in Annapolis. But normally I'd say he's 165.
Ted said on 6/Feb/14
A 5'9" or 5'10" (at absolute most) guy trying to claim 5'11".

Also does the 'poofy hair on top' thing to try to look taller. All the classic tricks.

185 lbs is also unlikely.
MD said on 5/Feb/14
FA, here's the thing - and it's shocking enough that it may surprise some - there is a category and range between short and tall: it's called average. Under no circumstance is James Franco "tiny" as it concerns his height, and definitely not at his current listed height, so it wasn't even close to appropriate a word to describe James.
MD said on 27/Jan/14
How in th world is 5'10.5" "pretty short" and "tiny" (when you are that height, to boot), barring you being Dutch? What a strange perception of height you have.
M.P. said on 25/Jan/14
Wow! He's pretty short. Him and his brother Dave are tiny. Maybe because he's also rather scrawny I always thought he looked taller. But he's basically the same height as me.
pjk said on 13/Jan/14
This listing surely can't be right. Gary cole is 5'11" on this site but if you goggle images for gary cole and james franco you can see he is at least 2" taller than franco which goes with franco being 5'9" or just under.
MD said on 19/Dec/13
With 5'11.5" Jimmy Kimmel:

If Jimmy straightens his neck, that's most definitely an inch, and that's also assuming Jimmy is his listed height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Dec/13
"James Franco height: 5ft 10.25in (178cm)"

Might be 5ft11 early morning
G-Man said on 11/Dec/13
In Homefront it feels like they tried to make him look bigger, to me he usually seems like a typical slight Hollywood actor (185 sounds too heavy unless he'd just packed on some muscle)
diesel said on 7/Dec/13
seems like the high end 5'9" range until the low-mid 5'10" range imo -
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 31/Oct/13
France looks marginally shorter than Topher Grace.
Click Here

5'10 flat. He looks it with Tom Felton also.
James said on 8/Oct/13
Looks 177cm in This is the End next to Danny McBride imo. I would give him 5ft 10 flat. 185 pounds (84KG) though? He's pushing it there, in This is the End he did look to have a fair bit of muscle though he has a slightly broad frame imo. I could buy 185lbs/84kg if he was actually 5ft 11 with his frame and build, id say he's probably 175-180lbs, around 80kg flat. Remember some guys have heavier bone mass, I for one do, people guess me to be lighter than I am quite substantially so the only logical explanation is heavy bones due to my broad frame.

Anyway, James Franco, 177/178cm and 175-180lbs.
CharlesFlint said on 5/Oct/13
IMHO,Franco is a solid 5'11" guy. He has somewhat short legs and a longer torso,small head and thin build. He's a smidge under 6foot and is the same height as Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel,as he is standing between them in 'This is the End'. Craig Robinson is the tallest at 6'1 so Franco,Rogen,Baruchel,McBride are 5'11" easily
cd said on 3/Oct/13
@Scott five eleven
Not even 3 inches between him and Maguire. Franco can be 5'10.25, that may be better than either 5'10 flat or 5'10.5. He is just not the 5'11 he claims.
Hawk said on 24/Sep/13
In agreement with MD that he's just a flat 5'10". He needs a downgrade !
avi said on 13/Sep/13
Why are so many people taller than him if he's 5'10.5 sounds like he's barely 5'10 what evidence do we have that he is over 5:9.5?
[Editor Rob: I think with someone like tom felton, he's got to be a 5ft 10 range guy rather than below it.]
Len said on 10/Sep/13
Looks 5'10" flat in everything he's done. At most.

And that's with a thin build making him look a smidge taller than he probably is.

Also... 185 pounds? C'mon, James... 'and then you woke up'.
Scott five eleven said on 7/Sep/13
Clearly taller than tobey maguire in the spiderman films, there was about a 3-4 inch difference, does seem a 5'11 guy to me

@SAK he looks 3'4" taller, he just has massive hair. Definately not a full 5'11", and I highly doubt below 5'10".
Balrog said on 10/Aug/13
This guy looked taller than Gyllenhaal and a little bit shorter than Seth Rogen. Taller than Topher Grace. I think he's spot on he can look just 5'10" but also can pull off a solid 5'11".
Jax said on 24/Jun/13
he's a classic 5'10 guy who can pull off the 5'11 look due to his slim appearance....his 5'11 claim is simply the standard hollywood rounded up height....all celebs round up a little nowadays

If Franco's 5'11 then that would make topher grace about 6'0 and tobey maguire about 5'9

Seth Rogen isn't 5'11,he's the same height as Adam Sandler who is 5'8.I would say James Franco is 5'9 and Seth Rogen 5'8.

James does appear more then 5" taller then Dave. But James is closer to the camera.
Scott 5\'11 said on 28/Jan/13
If 'Franco stand in' is genuine then no way is he below 5'10.5. He does look 5'11 in my opinion anyhow. Maybe 5'10.75 ?
Mikey T said on 28/Jan/13
This guy can easily look 5'11" or over.

Ive got news for you... Rogen aint 511.
Franco is 59.75 on a good day, Rogen is a flat 510.
Franco Stand-In said on 5/Oct/12
I work as James Franco's stand-in in a movie he's now filming so I'm probably an expert on his height.. Barefoot, he is 5'11.. How do I know for sure? I stood next to James for the camera during auditions to see if our heights were compatible.. I'm EXACTLY 5'10 1/2 barefooted and he was a tad taller than me.. I noticed the shoes too.. We were wearing similar heels.. His high hair made him seems way taller than me, but the eyes were about 1/2 above mine.. Debate settled: James Franco is 5'11 barefooted.. He tends to slouch in pictures, so he can appear shorter..
LaraR said on 28/Sep/12
I saw him for his "Your Highness" premiere at UCSB. I stood next to him and the height difference felt like how it would be to stand next to my boyfriend so I'll say that he's around 5'9.
Randomguyman said on 28/Sep/12
I saw him often at UCLA. He's a great human being. I'm 5'11 and I was at least 2 inches taller than him.
johnnyfive said on 4/Sep/12
Franco looks about 5'9 in the pictures with Tom Hanks posted by Lazlo. He also looks 5'9 max in the pic posted by Enrique. That's what 5'9 looks like next to me (184cms) the way Franco looks next to Hanks, so I'll stick with 5'9.

Rob whats ur guess for his brother dave? Looked roughly the same height as jonah hill. 5'6?
[Editor Rob: yeah, no more than 5ft 6]

This guy confuses me.

In this shot he looks barely taller than 174cm listed Kenan Thompson, I'd say he's 178 MAX here:
Click Here
But in this shot he looks a lot taller than Thompson, I'd even estimate him at 182 here:
Click Here
In this shot he looks shorter than 180cm listed Seth Rogen, again looking 178 MAX:

But here he looks taller than Rogen, again I'd estimate him at 182 here:
Click Here
In this shot he's a bit taller than 179cm listed Topher Grace, he looks around 180 here:
Click Here

Anything between 177 and 182 is a possibility, this guy seems to defy the laws of physics, varying in height Brad Pitt style. Rob do you have an explanation for this?
Ed said on 15/Oct/07
Rob, all I saw was Franco claim he's almost 5ft10 and not the 5ft5 he was inaccurately listed by some magazine.

[Editor Rob: in the french vogue hommes interview it's written as 182cm and 167cm written. How did he give the interview? To the french magazine, did you see the English version?]
Ed said on 14/Oct/07
Rob, there's an interesting quote from Franco himself in the most recent Vogue Hommes International magazine(the one with him on the cover), in which he says that a recent magazine had him billed at 5ft5 but in reality he says he's actually almost 5ft10.

Now this is a quote from him stating he's not even 5ft10! I don't know if there's a link to this article, but the magazine is on newstands at Barnes & Noble right now.

[Editor Rob: it said 167cm, and 182cm in the magazine.]

She was in heels which is most likely 5'11. so i would say he is 5'11 in shoes. probably 5'10-5'10.25 barefoot.

yea but did u see in that scene where Katherine Heigl talks to ryan seacrest they were about the same height!!

she is 5'9, and wearing heels in that scene where she is intervewing franco.. so she's about 1-2 inches taller than him there?

I would say at least 2. She's probably 5'11 in heels, but he is standing relaxed. I think 5'10-5'10.5 is a solid estimate for him.

yeah i was surprised that Katherine Heigl looked so big next to him in knocked up. no more then 178cm for him.
Anonymous said on 13/Jul/07
If you compare all the guys boots the pic Viewer posted, you'll notice quite clearly that henderson is packing inserts in his boots. Look where the laces are positioned on the dorsum of the foot on all the other guys but they are at an awekward angle on Henersons :-) I say 2" inserts.
Anonymous said on 26/Jun/07
good pic Viewer. He does look a little bigger than Henderson IMO. Anyone who thinks this guy is 5'11 needs to see "knocked up". 5'8.5" Katherine Heigl literally dwarfs him when she's in heels. Now a legitimate 5'10.75 guy shouldn't look as small as he does next to her in heels if he were barefoot, let alone in shoes which he is clearly in.
Viewer said on 25/Jun/07
He seems to be around the same height as Martin Henderson who is listed on this site as 5ft 8.5in.
Here is a picture of them both along with the rest of the cast of Flyboys all standing up.

Joe said on 4/Jun/07
Anonymous, I noticed the same thing in "knocked up". Heigl was definitely taller than Franco, granted she was probably wearing heals, but I agree he must be closer to 5'10.
Anonymous said on 2/Jun/07
I just saw "knocked up" tonight and James has a cameo in it. He seriously looke small next to Katherine Heigl who is 5'8-5'9. dmeyer met her and said 5'8.25 so ill go with that. even if she were in big heels I don't believe she would be more than 5'11.5 which James SHOULD be over regardless of footwear save flip flops. he might be closer to 5'10. same goes for Seth Rogen who looked smaller than her in alot of scenes as well.
Anonymous said on 14/May/07
I still think he and Topher look the same height in MD's pic, although it could be James' hair giving that impression too. Tobey could have been in lifts for Spiderman 3. He's listed as 5'8 here, but most on his page think he's a bit less, like 5'7.5 and James didn't look much taller than him in Spidey3.
HellBoundPower said on 14/May/07
Topher looks taller in the pic below, which makes me think Topher is 5'11", and Franco is accurately listed here.
Drew said on 13/May/07
Was Toby wearing lifts in Spiderman? He looked only one inch taller than Toby in the movie. Maybe 1.5 inches max.

I think he looks margially taller (look at shoulders), and I'd say a quarter of an inch, so this looks about right.

i met him @ kimmel center while he was in philly filming 'annapolis' he's noticeably taller than me, and i'm 5'8, so between 5'10 & 5'11 is feasible.
Juraj said on 14/Nov/06
Either Brad Pitt is 6 even or James Franco is less than 5'11. They don't seem as tall as each other.

Uh, no, because Tyrese has fluctuating height as well.
Jordan said on 11/Sep/06
I have always been measured at 5'10 3/4. He was eye level with me. Maybe a little shorter. I met him in mahattan at a comic convetion in 2002.
dmeyer said on 25/Jul/06
i those pics he dosnt look that tall but i think he is 5 11
Jordan said on 28/Jun/06
Met him in New york at some comic convention in 2002 or something. I'm 5'10 3/4 as of my senior year of high school( I dont think I grew Since) and he was eye level to me so 5'11 is about right
Richard said on 18/Mar/06
That 5-11 height would be accurate. cause you can tell he's like 2 to 3 inches taller then tobey mcguire who is 5-8. James hair does make him appear taller.
Vincent said on 15/Mar/06
yeah i have it in front of me.. 5'6
Anonymous said on 29/Jan/06
I think James Franco is 5-11 and also think that Tyrese is shorter than he is.
When Tyrese came out in "2fast2furious" he looks short next to Paul Walker, considering that he is 6-6'1. Who's to know what they're real height is?
smokeblower said on 27/Jan/06
Heights on screen in Hollywood are staged. There is a scene in Annapolis where Tyrese is making James Franco do push ups in the rain. In this scene you see that James Franco is about 3 inches taller than Tyrese in the closeup but from a distance you can tell that a body double is used for James Franco to achieve this height.

He is about my height and build. I can tell by the movies I have seen him in. I'm about 5'10-5'11 range which we all know isn't tall but by no means is small either. Were above 5'9 which is average. I'd say he is 5'11 and his hair gives him extra length but who carez.

I worked on "Annapolis" shot in Philadelphia, not Annapolis at a boxing gym in the city.
Tyrese has gotta be close to 6'0. His stand in was HUGE! Mr. R, I think they gave you
a bogus reason that you were rejected. I walked by the guy and he was no less than 6'2.
So there was a height disparity between Tyrese and his stand in, but I guess it's not a big deal
Anyway, Franco boxed both guys and neither towered over him. But both were clearly taller.
He's no Sly Stallone. This guy is a legit 5"10.5 - 5'11.

Viper, as you know, I was asked to be Tyrese's stand-in, but I got rejected by the assistant director because at 5'11.5" I was "too tall"!

I agree Viper. Tyrese is not tall. BradPittisshort must actually be James Franco if he believes Tyrese is 6'2" so he can be 5'10"

Tyrese is between 5-9 and 5-10.

Worked on "Annapolis" and stood near him when he was wearing boxing shoes and I'm 5'8 and he was a solid 3 inches taller. Watch that film. Tyrese is about 6'2 and he doesn't tower over James.

Met him tonight, parked his brand-new Aston Martin (I go to UCLA and park VERY expensive cars at a nearby 5 star hotel, heheh). I'm 6'2" and stood up right next to him several times. I was about 3 inches taller than him, so 5'11" is quite an accurate estimation of his height. No taller, no shorter.

Rob, I read the same thing that tony read, in the same magazine - that James was 5'6". So, just confirming what Tony said. At the same time, I agree with you, and think it was a big misprint. In Freaks and Geeks, and in Spiderman, etc. I never thought he looked short, mostly in the 5'10" to 5'11" range. Yes, he definitely looked easily taller than Maguire to me...

5'8" saw him get out of car during filming of dean. And n lifts regular old school vans.

He's never 5'11...
5'10 max and that's pretty much ...
Wouldn't be surprised if he's 5'9...

If you look at the scenes where Maguire and he are standing next to each other, Franco is clearly taller, by a margin that seems to be almost 3 inches. Next to other actors, Franco (standing up straight) always seems to be 5'11".

I totally agree with U Mr.R...He certainly is taller than Tobey and Willem ( 5'7''- 5'8''), but is he really 5'11''. I do think he is closer to 5'10''. Don't let his slim body fool U...
Mr. R said on 30/May/05
Actually, if it is a misprint, it has been done a lot. Franco has been listed as 5-4 or 5-6 all over the place. When he did the James Dean movie, it was noted that he was about the size of Dean, who was given as 5-8. I have NEVER seen this listing for Franco. BUT, he certainly did not seem shorter than Toby in Spiderman, and he seemed a little taller than Willem Dafoe in the same film. Let's see if we can nail this guy down!

about a year ago i read in people magazine i think it was 50 most beautiful and it was saying there that he's 5'6.

[Editor Rob: that's a big mis-print most likely!]
