I'm optimistic that big G wore big boots that given 1.6-1.7' look close to jared with roughly an inch sneakers or something added that jared slouch standing a side facing bad angle. If G stand the way jared stand and same footwear he did look 1.5' shorter. I think jared is only 5'8 barefoot

When a 6'0 guy claims 6'2 everyone gets upset , but when a 5'9 man inflates his height like that its fine for everyone lol

Hey rob

This video with jimmy fallon at the miute 1:19 they stand bext to each other what do you think jared leto's height ?
Editor Rob: he could be 2-2.5 inches taller
Goldberg said on 13/Aug/16
Hey rob do you think you'll get a picture with him any time soon ? I would like to see the height difference
Editor Rob: I really don't know if that would happen, but we can hope!
Tom said on 13/Aug/16
Would you say 173-174cm is out of the question Rob?
Editor Rob: he can look it on the odd occasion, but I think this listing is ok, in fact he could pull off 5ft 9.5 with some people.
Sam said on 5/Aug/16
Rob, what about his older brother Shannon?
He looks between 5'6 and 5'7.
Editor Rob: Shannon did claim to be 5ft 9...he can at times look 5ft 7-8 zone.
Mklove said on 5/Aug/16
2007 watched 30 seconds to Mars live and on stage even when he was standing closest to rest of the audience he still looked shorter than the guitarist and bassist and when he came down and security escorted him and held him by the belt when singing with the front row people he was still shorter and the event security guards made him look tiny.
MD said on 3/Aug/16
He was on Jimmy Fallon, last night, and I was a bit surprised at how much smaller he looked than the 5'11.5" Jimmy Fallon. Though, this is still assuming Jimmy doesn't wear lifts.
NangaParbat said on 2/Aug/16
Hey Rob, this guy is tricky in my opinion. Even the pic above is not so clear: look at the shoes of Waltz and then move on Leto's, the instep is visibly higher than Waltz. At least an inch inside. What do you think?
Editor Rob: half inch lifts aren't huge, but they can be used in shoes and many wouldn't be able to tell.
Heighter said on 30/Jul/16
I think the magic number is between 173 - 174 Rob.

175 if we're including the tallest hair on his head.
Charizard said on 28/Jul/16
173cm max but look why is everyone towering over him ?
Shredder said on 27/Jul/16
G is on a higher ground or bigger footwear , no way is Jared 5'7.5
Leto said on 23/Jul/16
5,10 with shoes. Wakes up at 5,9 1/2. Dips down to 5,9 at nite with out shoes. Thst is it. At best in the morning could be in the 5,10 1/2 with shoes. Sometimes he put on the big back boots now those can put him at 5,11 that's why he claims 5,11.
We are done here!
Your welcome :")
Editor Rob: unless he wears lifts...

which might be unlikely given the style of shoe he has worn at times.
truth said on 29/Jun/16
Legitimate 5'9.
Mat said on 16/Jun/16
Do you think Leto could be 5'9.5? I mean, he looks about 5'9 with Waltz in the photo above, but he doesn't really seem 2 inches shorter than these supposed to be solid 5'11ers
Click Here Click Here

I would have thought that he wears lifts, but if he is wearing converse sneakers a lot, then it doesn't make sense that he'll wear lifts...
Editor Rob: he can pull off 5ft 9.5 at times yes.
Mat said on 15/Jun/16
Rob, his shoe has a really big buldge at the front here. That means he wears lifts here right? Click Here
Editor Rob: there's not enough to really tell from that shot, would be hard to say if he wore any lift or not.
musket said on 27/May/16
He is 173cm.
an anonymous peach said on 11/May/16
Anything under 5ft 9 is too low for him IMO. He pretty much always looks 175/176cm
musket said on 28/Apr/16
My 15 year old cousin is 5''9 and took a pic with him and Jared looked a lot shorter than him and my cousin is wearing flat converse shoes and has a lanky posture.
Chris said on 18/Apr/16
Priscillq - Shannon Leto (his brother) is really really small. I'd say he's about 5'5. I think that's the reason people assume Jared is tall (he does look tall in certain photos). Because he looks big compared to his brother!
Chris said on 18/Apr/16
Take a look at some pictures of Leto, with Leonardo DiCaprio (6 foot tall)..........Leo towers over him. I'd give him at least 4 inches on Jared Leto. I seriously think even 5'9 is too generous.
Chris said on 18/Apr/16
I laughed when I saw his claim that he is 5'11........Jared Leto is really small. I met him once after a 30 Seconds to Mars show in late 1990s, and he was about the same height as me (5'8). I think even 5'9 is generous. I'd say he was a solid 5'8 but nothing more.
Priscillq said on 17/Apr/16
I'm 5'7 3/4 and met his brother once and I was taller than him by a few cm , I think Jared is 5'9 max
musket said on 12/Apr/16
No where near 5'10 He is about 5'8 half.
Del Mar said on 10/Apr/16
He can look taller sometimes. In Fight Club he mostly looks only an inch shorter than 5'11 Brad Pitt, but I guess 5'9 is correct
Joey. said on 29/Mar/16
He's a solid 5'10 with shoes,depending on the Footwear he can be a bit taller. So whether he's 5'9 or 5'11..who cares he is an incredible person, that's what matters.
charlie said on 21/Mar/16
People are we talking about how tall he looks with shoes on or off? because people are saying he looks 5 feet 8.5 inches. He has shoes on remember. He may look 5 feet 8.5 inches with shoes but without shoes his physical height is 5 foot 7 inches. So I will say Jared Leto is 5 feet 7 inches.
Jim Hopper said on 20/Mar/16
5-11"............Oh dear more B/S
Johno said on 23/Feb/16
Maybe 5'8.75.
Johno said on 23/Feb/16
Rob's listing looks about right.
Chris said on 30/Jan/16
175cm, look at how Forest Whitaker dwarfed him. 175cm no more
BT said on 29/Jan/16
He looks 5'9.25 with Waltz, and he can pull that off quite often I'd say, but 5'9 is a fair shout.
CharlyB said on 28/Jan/16
leto seems more like 1,76 or 1,77 his brother shannon is 1,70 max
James C said on 10/Jan/16
If christopher waltz stood up straighter his eyes would match jared letos nose or an little higher, he's actually losing an little height in the photo, and his head is an little under his hairline.
Chris said on 13/Dec/15
Rob, what age does a man start to lose height? Jared leto 44 at the moment and seems like he'll be losing none anytime soon. Do all people lose height as they get older?
Editor Rob: a tiny percentage might lose only a fraction by their 70's, but the average will be about an inch for males and nearer to 2 inches for females by 70's.

Wear and tear and disc damage could always lead to earlier loss. From 40 to 50 males will tend to lose only a small fraction - most won't realise they have lost anything because it is literally that - maybe a fraction.
Goose said on 31/Oct/15
I was about 15FT away from him at the Vail
Airport in 2003' (he was boarding the flight with Cameron Diaz and a few friends). I'm a weak 5'10 (at night w/no shoes) and he is definitely 5'9 - no more no less. Thin build but not skinny.
lol said on 10/Oct/15
Rob what you think is his morning height?
[Editor Rob: at times Leto could pull off over 5ft 9...but I feel around 5ft 9 is ok for him and nearly 5ft 10 out of bed.]
Brett said on 4/Oct/15
He could look 5'10 on my so called life
Alex said on 30/Jul/15
Sharon Leto is like 5'6
BradPittis5'10 said on 26/Jul/15
No taller than 5'9.5. See this picture standing next to Val Kilmer listed at 5'11.5 and he looks several inches shorter in "normal" footwear: Click Here As he became more and more famous he "grew" taller as did guys like RDJ.
cupponi said on 23/Jul/15
what do you think is up his brother shannon ?
[Editor Rob: he claimed "Hahaha no I'm 5 feet 9 inches with heals 6 ;)"

but, he looks shorter than Jared.]
the shredder said on 21/Jul/15
He can look strong 5'8 up to 5'10 , 5'11 is a joke.
Carrepier said on 18/Jul/15
Looks 5'8.25 , but in the photo 5'9.25
leto said on 16/Jul/15
5"9 without shoes 5"10 with shoes. That's his height.
kalum said on 14/Jul/15
And @Mat 5'10 I had a teacher who was 6'5 and wore a size 7 shoe and my dad who is 5'9 wore a size 8
kalum said on 14/Jul/15
"Mat 5'10 says on 6/Jun/15
Rob, isn't a shoe size 11 big for a 5'9 man? Do you think he could be lying about that too?"

I have a mate who's 5'7 and wears a size 12 shoe. I also have a mate who's 6'7 and wears a size 12 shoe and a mate who's 6'1 and wears a size 12 shoe. I also have a mate who's 5'8 and wears a size 8 shoe and a mate who's 6'4 and wears a size 11 shoe and I have a mate who's 6'0 and wears a size 8 shoe, and a mate who's 6'0 and wears a size 13 shoe. I am 6'6 and I wear a size 15 shoe. You see how shoe size really doesn't correlate with shoe size, same with hand size. One of my mate's who's 6'1 has about a 7.5" hand and my dad who was only 5'9 had about an 8.5" hand.
james said on 13/Jul/15
175cm, he can possible be 174cm.
Lola said on 22/Jun/15
In regards to the pictures with Vika Levina, she's wearing wedge sneakers so it's an unfair comparison.
Mat 5'10 said on 6/Jun/15
Rob, isn't a shoe size 11 big for a 5'9 man? Do you think he could be lying about that too?
[Editor Rob: yes it's bigger...usually you are talking about 15% of your height for your foot.]

Rob , what would you guess his weight in The Kill Video if he's 148 nowadays ?
[Editor Rob: sometimes harder to say without seeing with clothes, that can mask a skinny body easy enough.]

I just met Jared during his european tour. Hes gorgeous but lets talk about heights, Im 168 cm and when he hugged me for a photo he was clearly shorter than my boyfriend who is a solid 175 cm. I estimated around 173 which was obvious from the pictures I took. We were both in sneakers about 1 inch tall. He is nonetheless stunning in person

shawn said on 26/Apr/15
He's 5'9, he wears lifts on and off hence his varying height, MM was taller, a so as every other 5'10-6ft person, only time he racks is when he's wearing his boots with 2 inch lifts. His slim build can make him look 5'10. Overall he's 175cm
JD. said on 18/Apr/15
okay I'm going to be honest, I've met Jared leto twice and he is a solid 5"10 1/2 with shoes.
he stood face to face with me and I'm 5 10 exactly. he either was half an inch taller or just a hair taller than me. that's why he can claim 5 11 depending on his footwear.
JD. said on 18/Apr/15

Is the 148 lb his weight now or when he lost for Dallas Buyers club ?
Alex said on 26/Mar/15
He looks more 5'9.5-5'10 than 5'9 with Efron he looks a good 5'10
chris said on 25/Mar/15
@bob james franco was taller, and james franco ISN'T 5'11, and leto was honest with that claim
184.3cm said on 19/Mar/15
@Bob

Look at the pic on this page, the gentleman next to him is self confessed 170cm (5'7). Do you see 4 inches there? His eyes come to Jared's nose a solid 2 inch difference. Good listing.
bob said on 18/Mar/15
if he says he's 5' 11" then he's 5' 11"... None of you have ever met him, so what's your word against his. And besides, next to james franco, who is 5' 11", he is the same height
Alex said on 18/Mar/15
He looks 5'11 in requiem for a dream I think it's an honest claim maybe 5'10 without shoes
James C said on 14/Mar/15
Why do 5'9 guys claim 5'11?

Another johnny depp. Trying to claim 2inch taller and get neil at 5'9
hanze said on 1/Mar/15
5'9 flat
5'10 footwear
Shawn said on 22/Feb/15
Fair enough Rob. My personal guess is he wakes up at 5'9", and dips to 5'8.5" during the day.

You think he's occasional lift-wearer too? I wouldn't put it past him. He seems very appearance-conscious.
Shawn said on 18/Feb/15
Click Here

This is a confirmed 5'6.5" man standing next to Leto. Even accounting for footwear advantage, it makes it hard to believe anything beyond 5'8.5" for him. And Rob, I normally wouldn't link to photos of G, but I wanted to make an exception for this one, as Leto seems to be one of the more elusive heights around here, and here we have a photo of him standing right next to, in equal posture, someone you've obtained an exact measurement of.
[Editor Rob: remember he is also beside Karate kid, I think 5ft 9 is ok for him.]
Shawn said on 3/Feb/15
LoL, I don't know. A half-decent pair of elevator shoes costs between $200-300 minimum, and I remember G remarking on quite a few occasions he wasn't exactly bleeding money.

G pic aside, I'm not convinced Leto is anything above 5'9", and not a strong one at that.
[Editor Rob: well I think we can agree 5ft 11 is a huge stretch for leto, he seems to be calling that height in cowboy's.]
Arch Stanton said on 2/Feb/15
Shawn, never trust a photo with G. He was probably wearing 2 or 3 inch lifts.
[Editor Rob: G said to me, with his hand on his heart that he only wore lifts on days that ended in a 'Y'.]
Shawn said on 1/Feb/15
Rob, I don't know if you've saved it, but you should go through your collection and see if you saved the "G & Leto" pic. The difference between them was minimal, if any. I distinctly remember even Glenn being "shocked" as he was expecting Leto to be taller.

I lump Leto in the same category as guys like Stallone, Depp, Gibson, Farrell, Damon, etc. All strong 5'8"/weak 5'9" guys that try to get away with claiming 5'10"+.
[Editor Rob: he might just have caught him with slightly lower pavement.]
juan said on 28/Jan/15
@ just like jared does cause well who wants to be short?
Arch Stanton said on 27/Jan/15
Rob can you add a photo and add Fight Club, Mr. Nobody, American Psycho, Alexander and Lonely Hearts?
Arch Stanton said on 27/Jan/15
148 lbs on 5'11 would look thin but not quite Leto skinny. Beckham during his playing career was about that. Steve Vai at 6'1 and 150 pounds is proper skinny.
MD said on 26/Jan/15
Tunman, I think the fact is that if he's really that weight, there is no way he's 5'11" given how thin that would look. I'm 5'11" and 143 lbs, myself, and as thin as Leto is, there is no way he's as tall as 5'11" if he's 148 lbs. If that's his actual weight, as Shawn said, it'd be very hard for him to be above what he's currently listed.
Tunman said on 24/Jan/15
@Shawn at 5'9.5 I never exceeded 143-4 Lbs and never went under 127.I can imagine many guys being as thin as that but that's quite rare I admit.
Actually many sportsmen especially long distance runners and some cyclists could that thin,but yeah,it's pretty thin on an average person with normal activity.
Julian said on 21/Jan/15
@juan Zedd is claiming 177 cm. He doesn't look 177 cm, though!

Kourosh said on 15/Jan/15
Julie then you are not 5'10.
Shawn said on 26/Dec/14
Rob looked taller next to Glenn than Leto did. I won't give him anymore than 5'9", and a weak one at that. Does anyone realize how skinny 148lbs would look on someone who genuinely was 5'11"?
julie said on 21/Dec/14
once i was standing right next to him and he was actually a bit taller than me. i'm 5'10.
marcus said on 25/Nov/14
Haha 5'11 is a height that no one honestly claims in hollywood, if your 5'11, you claim 6ft, if your 5'9/5'10 you claim 5'11. Jared leto is an example of that.
marco said on 25/Nov/14
Not over 5'9. I think he's a weak 5'9.
184.3cm said on 25/Nov/14
5'9 guy claiming 5'11 ..He doesnt look anywhere near 6 foot which a 5'11 guy can pull off at times. Also judging by photo his size 11 shoe claim is off as well. I wear size 11 UK shoes 46 here in Europe and i always get comments from people about having boat feet. Looks typical average range 5'9-5'10 .
Charlie said on 23/Nov/14
5'9 but he doesn't always wear lifts, like someone said in the comments hence height is always varying. If chester bennington of linkin park is 5'10, then leto is no more than 5'9 . Every picture with him he's an inch shorter. Here's a recent one, both wearing similar footwear(shoes with a 1 inch heel)
Click Here
marcus said on 19/Nov/14
Am i the only who remember that leto himself claimed 5'8 a few years ago? He certainly wears lift, im positive if that hence his varying height(he doesn't wear them all the time) he can really look a weak 5'9 but i'd give him 175cm
max said on 7/Nov/14
Idk man, if you are 6'1, you are a tall guy, a 5'9 guy could look 5'10 etc, like i said im a weak 5'10 and he was shorter than me by an inch, he does have great posture so he can pull off a 5'10 look
Federico said on 20/Oct/14
@Max, he was wearing slippers. I could send you my pict with him
chrisssss said on 19/Oct/14
Davie havock and chester bennington are both 5'10 and were taller than leto by an inch
marco said on 19/Oct/14
There two interviews with leto on ellen, one before the oscars, and one after he won, now this is proof he wears lifts, the interview before the oscars, he wore open boots with 2inch lifts and he was a good bit taller than ellen, however the second interview after the oscars, he wore normal loafers and he was SIGNIFICANTLY shorter, he was slightly taller than ellen(2inches max) leto is 5'9 at best
max said on 19/Oct/14
@federico he wears lifts bro, im 5'10 (177) and when i saw them in florida 3 months ago with LP and AFI he was 2-3cm shorter than me! He definitley wears, his height always varies, chester benington(178cm) was taller than him as well
Federico said on 10/Oct/14
I've just met Jared Leto here in Argentina. I'm 6'1" and he was like 5'11" like he claims. He has an impecable posture and a small frame body. I don't know if you've ever met him, but definitely he's not 5'9"
Vibram said on 5/Oct/14
Click Here Leto with 6ft (what he claims himself) photographer Terry Richardson. Having seen Terry with 5ft5.5 > 5ft6 "Flea" from CHilli Peppers I'd say Terry is a weak 5ft11 and not 6ft. Click Here

This would make Leto a weak 5ft9 to mid-strong 5ft8 in my opinion. Click Here
Ai said on 25/Sep/14
Saw him last week at a linkin park/30 seconds to Mars concert - he did some autograph signing and I say he's around 5'11 with shoes - probably 5'9.5 without , definitely more than 5'9 and less than 5'11 .
Clay said on 8/Sep/14
Rob don't you remember the pic of Jared Leto and G? They looked right around the same, now even if Glenn was in those boots that still leaves a 5'8-5'8.5 Leto. Guess he forgot his lifts then.
[Editor Rob: I believe G may have been a little nearer the camera, but it's a long time since I seen it, a girl who claimed 5ft 6 sent a photo once and he looked about 5ft 9 with her.]
Can't figure it out. said on 19/Aug/14
How can he be as tall as Andrej the model. Her stats are 6'2. And yet he looks 6 foot next to her? Not hating or anything on jared hes a cool dude and does his thing. But just general curiosity.
Y said on 6/Aug/14
174 wears lifts
satchy said on 4/Aug/14
hey Rob, this is quite an interesting photo of Jared with Zac Efron which gives some perspective on their height, I think that there is more than just an inch difference between them Click Here

Someone in the thread was asking for the pic of Jared with Cameron Diaz where he's barefoot. There's this one. There's a slope advantage to him but he's still waaaaay taller than her. Even if she's 5ft8 not the 5'9 she claims he's still got several inches on her, I'd say.
bit.ly/1trJODA
For the record (stay with me) my choir were recently getting ready to perform and our choir leader was making us line up in height order. I would have sworn blind I had two inches on this guy but everyone else said he was actually a couple of inches taller than me. Its really hard to work out who is taller when you're standing next to someone. So people who've stood next to him in a bar and thought they could guess his height could be wrong.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Apr/14
He's so skinny though. He's built kind of like I was at 17 and he's approaching what, 45?
luke said on 8/Apr/14
I met him a week ago. I'm 5'8.5" and he was definitely more than an inch taller than me
Arch Stanton said on 21/Mar/14
Oh c'mon he doesn't look much shorter than Bale in American Psycho.
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 20/Mar/14
I think Leto might be slightly south of a full 5'9
chrisssss said on 12/Mar/14
Was inch shorter than 5'10chester bennington and 5'10 davey havok, so 5'9 for jared,
Arch Stanton said on 8/Mar/14
Glad to see the Academy agreed and rewarded with him and McConaughey.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Mar/14
He can look 174 but I doubt he's under that.
kitkat said on 7/Mar/14
listing seems accurate

imo he seems a high-end 5-8 or a weak 5-9 barely
hurricane brat said on 4/Mar/14
should probably add Dallas Buyers Club to his bio Rob. Considering he won an oscar for that.
FM said on 3/Mar/14
Seeing him at the Oscars last night, made me see him as someone on the shorter side. I think he is someone who doesn't always have great posture, and wears strange footwear - making look just shy of Mathew McConaughey at times, and at others several inches shorter.

I think he is 5'9", but wouldn't be surprised if he was close to 5'8". To me, he always reminded of having a similar height/build to Johnny Depp. Both are listed at 5'9" on this site, but I think both are probably closer to 5'8".
MD said on 24/Feb/14
Seeing as how we've gotten Jared's height pretty close, perhaps that was a better picture to put on Joe Jonas' page. Because, very obviously, Jared is not 6'0", not even close.
satchy said on 21/Feb/14
ok, he seems to be 2-3 inches taller than Joe Jonas Click Here

Mr. R, what's your estimate on Jared?
Mr. R said on 15/Feb/14
I have seen Jared twice in the last few months, and both times, he was wearing clunky boots.
Goose said on 7/Feb/14
When I saw him at the Vail Airport in 2003 (he was on my plane to LAX and was with Cameron Diaz) he had an inch on her. Don't know her height but I'm a weak 5'10 and he seemed to
be a smidge under 5'9.

IMO both he and McConaughey deserve Best Actor awards at the Oscars. No way was the performances better in 12 years a slave.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Jan/14
He's got a very good chance of winning Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars this year, he was terrific in Dallas Buyers Club, that#s why he's shot up to 5'11 :-] Barely 8 stone in that film and probably a 24 inch waist or something LOL. Yeah he can look a weak 5'9" agreed.
[Editor Rob: not seen it for a long time but I am sure he was a few inches smaller than michael rosenbaum in urban legends in a scene they had in a house party or something...]

what is the height of taylor?? we can compare the difference in this pic:Click Here
MD said on 2/Jan/14
Yep, he's not quite 5'9".
Shawn said on 31/Dec/13
It's guys like Leto where I wish we still had Glenn's pics. I still remember it clearly... barely an inch on Glenn. Assuming G had footwear advantage, he's 5'8.5". Even G stated 5'9" for him.
tony said on 21/Dec/13
Having looked at some photos with him, now I doubt if he is 5'9. 5'8.5 seems to be true.
Brad said on 10/Dec/13
Saw his band, weak 5' 9". His 5' 11" is laughable.
mr man said on 3/Dec/13
Just noticed he said on twitter that he's 5'11". So he's obviously grown three inches.
mr man said on 3/Dec/13
He said on his old blog a few years ago that he's 5'8". Think it's deleted now, annoyingly, but what can ya do.

Saw him at Vail Airport in 2003. Not super short but not tall
Either. I'd put him between
5'8 1/2 & 5'9

Anyone who say they've seen him, and say he is 5'11, are either blind or full of crap!!!!! Was at rooftop of Thompson in manhattan, and saw him there. He is at most, MOST, 5'9!!! He is very short!!

This guy looks like a weak 5'8.
172-173 cm maybe.
Well, at times he actually appear in the 5'9 range (in photos), but I can't see him at that height really ..

Saw JL tonight at a screening of the new movie Dallas Byers Club with Matt M. Leto stood on the stage and he was clearly not the 5-9 he claimed to be. He is closer to 5-8.5 without shoes, and MM is just over 5-10.

He's 5'11 I met him and I'm 5'4 and he topped me by a few good inches and I was wearing 3" heels. Also, he's stated he's 5'11 on twitter
cole said on 25/Jun/13
A friend of mine who's 6'4.5 met Leto in Norway yesterday, and he seemed a good 5'9 or maybe even a bit taller in that photo, can't see their footwear though, I thought he might have worn a boot or something whilst my friend allways wears converse. Leto was a bit over the top of his nose. He's 5'9 minimum for sure.

Looks 5'9" but can't be much more than 140 pounds usually. and not an ounce of fat on him. Bodyfat usually near 6% but this weight loss for his role in McConaghy's film is insane. I can't imagine how long you'd have to go without eat to have that waist, its shocking.

I was an extra in a movie eventually called "Highway" in '99, which Leto starred in. I had a chance to be right next to Leto with non-raised shoes, on concrete. I am 6'2", dead even..and I had 6 inches on him, easy enough. He's 5'8", no more.

SolidSnake said on 2/Mar/11
5 foot 9 inches is 175.26 cm
1 inch is 2.54 cm
12 inches make a foot
Jolly Roger said on 16/Feb/11
I had already commented a while back about the mistakes on this site regarding American to metric conversions. 175cm is converted as 5ft 7.4in not as 5ft 9in. As the others said, just type "convert 175cm into feet" in Google, and it will do the math for you.

[Editor Rob:

175cm = 5.74 feet. Correct.

BUT 5.74 Does Not equal 5ft and 7.4 inches because there are 12 inches per foot. It is not base 10!

You have 5 whole feet plus 0.74 of a foot, to get the inches multiply 12 * 0.74 which gives 9. 5ft and 9 inches.

It's a very common misunderstanding people have.]

Will said on 29/Jan/11
Kirker, I'm sorry you don't know what you're talking about, so please be less dogmatic. Ask any tailor to show you a tape measure with Imperial as well as Metric measurements and you will quickly see that 5 feet nine inches (5'9") is slightly more than 174cm (not quite 175cm). And if you don't believe that, try consulting another tailor or seamstress.
MD said on 19/Jan/11
It's really sad Rob had to explain that to you after I had already explained it to you. We don't work on a decimal system where everything is done in tens. 5'9" does not equal 5.9 feet. I don't know what you're not getting about that.
kirker said on 18/Jan/11
I know there are 12 inches in a foot, there are in every country's 'foot' measurement (for those still using archaic measurements). The simple fact remains 5 ft and 9 inches does not equal 175cm. It is 5ft 7 and a bit. Google it and you will see, use a converter and you will see.

[Editor Rob:
you are probably seeing 175cm = 5.74 feet?

0.74 feet is 8.88 inches. 5 feet and almost 9 inches.

]
MD said on 17/Jan/11
You don't know the difference between metric and American length measurements? I mean, obviously you don't, so you should go read up on the simple difference. American measurements aren't based on a 10-scale. There are 12 inches in a foot. Surely, you know that.
kirker said on 16/Jan/11
MD you've lost me. What on earth is 5.9 you refer to then if it is not meant to mean 5ft 9 inches. Look at the top of this section-it clearly says 5ft 9 inches equals 175cm.
MD said on 15/Jan/11
Kirker, you are the one converting incorrectly. 5'9" does not equal 5.9' which I think is what you're assumming and where you're going wrong.
kirker said on 14/Jan/11
5 9 is not 175cm and never has been. where did this calculation come from-its like an urban myth?? Maybe actors made it up to make themselves sound taller in feet. 5 9 is actually 180cm according to all scientific conversion charts. Having met him I would lean toward at least 180cm as I have recently been measured with a laser height thing which put me at 175cm.
Patt said on 4/Jan/11

Ok I met him last Friday and have a photo with him. I am 175 cm which according to my iphone us 5 7 1/2. He has a good 10cm on me which again according to my phone would make him 6 foot. I was sceptical before meeting him and thought he looked short but I think its beacause he is sol slender. By the way he is a lovely guy.

I figured he was 5'9 - 5'10". I also assumed Dwight Yoakam was in the 5'9 ' 5'10" range also.

Turns out he's listed as 6 foot. Funny, because Forest has more then 1 - 2" inches on him, i'd guess 3"

I thought skinny people are supposed to look tall.
Lmeister said on 22/Aug/07
As I said befor he probably is his official height 5'9'' and a bit = 176cm. He doesn't look short or tall. The only reason why he might look small sometimes is that he is so skinny.

depending on shoes and angle (remember jared does look a bit taller), jared could be 5 foot 10. I mean he's already a little bigger plus allowing for angles and positions, etc, he could be a tallish size (5'9.5 - 5'10.5)

i dont think jared is that small, if you think about it there is probz men who are smaler than him. i'm only 5ft 5, but if i was going out with jared (i wish) it would be fine, i dont see what the big deal is! xxx xxx xxx
Bombay Rocker said on 21/Jun/07
I think hunkymalecelebs is another site which is very often pretty accurate when it comes to listing height of male celebs.....i checked and they are very close to listing heights as is celebheights.com but there's no discussion thing over there and there's no Glenn who actually meets people and reports what he saw so yeah celebheights is far better but if i had to choose between i mdb and hunkymalecelebs, i will choose them hands down.

Hey man, i dont know whats wrong but that was me who posted the last comment with that link from his fansite which says 176....Thx

Its just camera angles and strange pose + strange slope, he is for sure a max 5 feet 10 and a minimum 5 feet 8.5 so around 176 maybe and even his official fansite lists him as 176.....Click Here this out, it says he is listed as 5 feet 11 and all but hes just a shade over 5 feet 9 in reality around 176 and i totally believe that.

That's the unbelievable 6-1 picture if you ask me. Cause even if the beach is sloping to his favor, Cameron is stretching out and Jared has a big slouch. If only judging by that picture I would be 100 % certain he really was 6-1. In other events and movies I've never seen him below 5-9, maybe 5-9 - 5-11. But from the pic with Glenn he seems 5-9 max!

Anonymous said on 8/Apr/07
I wouldn't be surprised if he's 5'9. When standing next to other people whose height we know, he definitely looks in the 5'9 range. But he's got that frame that gives him the appearance of a few extra inches.

You look at this picture below (of him on the left), and regardless of his height, he has a really slim frame, especially his waist/legs. I'm about his height (maybe 174), but I've got a wider upper body/shoulders and definitely a bigger waist (32), and I just don't have that appearance of being taller than I really am, like Jared Leto or, say, Johnny Depp have. If you look at me and Jared Leto separately, he'll definitely appear taller. But seeing the picture of him next to Glenn, I'd definitely be about eye-to-eye with him. It's understandable that his build causes some confusion over his height. Some of us 5'8-5'9ers just aren't blessed with that faux-tall appearance. :(

G-unit said on 16/Feb/07
I agree he can look taller, for example in this picture where he looks about 5'10.5:
Click Here

But I'd give him 5'9, no more no less. Because he reminds me very much of one of my skinny friends whose 5'8 (174cm) and weighs 120 pounds And he also use same kind of clothing style as jared, slim jeans and converse/vans shoes.
He gives everyone the impression of being at least 5'10, just like jared leto.
Spoony said on 14/Feb/07
I saw Cameron a few months ago at Gucci. We were amazed at how short she looked compared to movies. My friend stood right next to her and they were the same height....friend is 5"7'. So, 5'9" seems right for Jared.
Lyndsey said on 11/Feb/07
He's shorter than my friend Joey but taller than my friend Jon, Joey is 5'11 and Jon is 5'8. So he's between 5'9 and 5'10.

How do I know this? Jon and Joey toured with them last year.

bombay rocker said on 21/Jan/07
Are you guys serious..... i mean ya in movies he looks like a solid 5 feet 10 and sometimes 5 feet 11 but no more than that, he might be wearing lifts or some strange camera angles making him look taller. The pics you guys are talkin bout with cameron diaz on beach and barefoot, now there he is like 2 inches taller at most since he's standing on the upper side of slope and shes sloping downward and i strongly believe cameron diaz is between 5 feet 7.5 and 5 feet 8 at the veryyyyyyyy most so that makes him5 feet 9.5 and 5 feet 10 at most but in this pic with glenn he looks at most 5 feet 7.5. Evn if hes wearing .5 inch shoes ,hes 5 feet 8.
bombay rocker said on 21/Jan/07
Looks less than 5 feet 8, looks like 5 feet 7.5 in this pic with you then how come 5 feet 9 although looks a solid 5 feet 8 atleast in other pics. Glenn do u wear lifts.....just kiddin.

bombay rocker said on 11/Jan/07
have you guys ever heard of a cream, which when applied on your feet can give you 3 - 4 inches instantly. am a memeber of a forum where a guy bought it and he did say that he got an increase of atleast 3 inches but it just stays for 3- 4 hrs. I did see jared pics with cameron on a beach barefoot and he looks quite tall like 5 feet 11 to 6 feet and on the same page i saw pics where he is taller than her by like an inch at the most. So i am thinking about the possibility of that cream.
