I think there is something about his body type that makes people think he is shorter than he is. He looked almost the same height as Tony Hall on Arrested Development and 3" shorter than Will Arnett and almost the same height as the Dad. Is it maybe he legs or something else carrying a different proportion? I'd say he is 5'10.75" to 5'11.25"

Does anyone else think that Jason somehow looked rather short in Juno(2007)? Watching it, I thought he was around 5 feet 9 or something like that. Not saying that he is that height but it's funny and kind of strange. Anyone else?

5'10.5"

@Editor Rob: it depends on just what point 6ft would be, right in the middle of the line or the top/bottom?

Look at the 5 feet line. 4'11 is closer to the black line of 5' than the 5'1 line. Measure it with a ruler if you want. If you download the picture and zoom it, measure with a ruler the difference between 4'11 to the bottom of 5 feet and the top of 5 feet to the 5'1 mark. It's closer to 4'11.
So I will say that the 6 foot mark is at the top of the black line.

Do you understand what I'm saying?
Editor Rob: I still don't think he's as low as a flat 5ft 10, the lowest I would argue is 179cm, but anywhere in 5ft 10.5-11 range he can look, sometimes on a good day he'll beat it, other times he'll look less.

How tall does he look in this? The height chart seems real, there are some more pics out there of that photoshoot.

179 cm.
Mat said on 9/May/16
Rob, maybe it's to give him then 5'10.5 or 5'10.75. Do you see only 3 cm difference in this pic? Click Here I know Bateman has worse posture, but still...
Editor Rob: he can certainly look about 5ft 10 at times, the almost 5ft 11 zone might be overall a safer mark.
Civman said on 7/May/16
Hey Rob. Would you absolutely rule out 5'10 for bateman?
Editor Rob: I think he looked a bit taller than a guy like john cho in the last film I remember him in, but 179 at times is arguable.
Fez said on 2/Apr/16
[Editor Rob: he can look a weak 5ft 11 guy, that might be the best overall fit for him.]

and maybe it is! Rob, look at him standing next to 5'11.5" listed Ioan Gruffudd Click Here
it was a scene in Horrble Bosses, Ioan clearly has a Solid inch (or maybe pushing 2 inches) on Bateman.
i used to think Bateman was 5'11 but i now think he looks more 5'10-10.5 range at most.

what do u think Rob?
Mat said on 24/Mar/16

Rob, how do you explain the difference with Simon Pegg here? That's quite less than 2 inches
Editor Rob: he can look a weak 5ft 11 guy, that might be the best overall fit for him.

It's seriously time for a downgrade Rob.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Mar/16
Sudeikis can actually look 6ft1 if Bateman is 5ft11.
MAO said on 20/Mar/16
he is 177 next to ryan reynolds
chris said on 18/Mar/16
Also if Jason Suedekis is 184cm, then no way in hell Bateman is 180cm, he looks 6cm shorter.
chris said on 18/Mar/16
178cm Rob, no taller than that

Dan said on 3/Dec/15
I saw him in person at the Egyptian theater when Jennifer aniston did a q&a for a film last year. He's definitely about 5-10. He's definitely over 5-9 but not 5-11. He's got a wide head and a ton of hair.

It's downgrade time for Bateman Rob. Bateman is almost 3 inches shorter than Chris Pine, maybe 2.5 inches. If you consider he is in poorer stance, you can argue a 2 inch difference, but NOTHING less. He looks the same as 5'9 Jamie Fox. He is 5'10 range
Aaron zamora said on 4/Oct/15
Rob this man is 100% not 5'11 he's 5'9-5'10 at most! I have a unique way of estimating heights. This man was under the 3rd door hinge and barely hit the 3rd block design of a door in the movie the change up. He was barefoot as well I believe it was towards the end when he changed back to himself and he was putting his baby to sleep. He is not short but he is not 5'11 I can assure you of that Rob. Please comment back to this! or get in touch with me I know how to tell heights in a different but unique eight I've personally measured doors and know almost exactly how tall someone is by just seeing them next to a door.
maroo12 said on 17/Sep/15
i think he's 179cm
nothing more
James said on 25/Aug/15
I've been watching through Arrested Development and he gives me a 5'10" impression. Nothing more.
Sam said on 19/Aug/15
Looks comfortably taller than Jennifer Garner and a solid inch over Rebecca Hall and Charlize Theron...with these beautiful ladies, I don't question 5'11" for him.
Sam said on 5/Aug/15
He and Joel Edgerton look fairly similar height in photos from The Gift. Both strike me as weakish 5'11"ers.
youssef 5'8 said on 17/May/15
He always looks average 5'9.5 or near that but doesn't look much shorter than 6'2 star looks 5'11 then ,he's probably 5'10 specially that the 6'2 stars are probably shorter they listed
Jim said on 28/Apr/15
Definitely 5'11". I bought a couple of his donated suits from an LA consignment store. I'm 5'10" and the suit was consistent with someone an inch taller than I. Also, he has really long arms. I to reel those sleeves up more than an entire inch.
Hypado said on 23/Feb/15
Jason Bateman's height is 5ft 10.75in (180 cm)
CDS said on 17/Feb/15
5'11" is probably right on the money, especially since he can look in the 6'0" range (on TV's "Arrested Development" next to Jeffrey Tambor), and sometimes as low as 5'10" (next to Ryan Reynolds in "The Change-up"). I wouldn't be surprised if he's 5'11 1/2" in shoes (5'10 1/2" barefoot)- end of day height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Feb/15
5ft11 on the nose is right. No more or less.
Sam said on 5/Jan/15
W/ Alexander Skarsgard and Paula Patton, he can look 5'11" maybe a smidge under but I think he's close enough to claim 5'11". Click Here
Mike Brazil 1.82 said on 2/Dec/14
i agree with Dan. 1.80cm with shows or boots its real. a lot of heights here its cleary with shoes or boots, like that Sudeikis guy listed 1.84cm , Sudeikis is 1.83cm max. 1.86 or 1.87 with shoes
Dan said on 20/Nov/14
Saw him yesterday at the egyptian theater in hollywood. He was a surprise moderator for jennifer anistons Q&A after screening of Cake. NO WAY 5-11! NEVER. POISITIVELY NO more than 5-9. He has a huge head.

He does look about 5'11" here with 5'8" Billy Crudup:

Looks 5'10 in stuff i've seen him in.
SAK said on 25/Apr/14
divincodino92 says : In "Identity Thief" he says about him "average-height" and he seems 7-7.25 inches taller than Melissa McCarthy! So i think he is between 175-177!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Being described as average height means anyone between 5f9-5f11.5. So at 180cm he still is well with average range.

Lorne said on 2/Feb/14
A solid 180cm guy. He doesn't dip under the 180cm mark, and could be 180.5. Will Arnett is at worst, 6ft2.25, worst I can see for Bateman would be 5ft10.75 evening, 5'11 is a good shout.

Looks a full inch shorter than Patrick Wilson in "the switch". No more than 5'10.

I just watched that movie and I think that in a lot of the shots with Patrick and Jason, the camera-angles favoured Patrick a lot, so naturally he came off looking taller. But when they talked in straight shots they looked similar in height to me. And although there wasn't any full body-shots of them together to make it a bit clearer, I'd say they are similar height.
roy said on 29/Sep/13
5'10..no more, no less
cole said on 26/Sep/13

Will Arnett always comes off as a legit 189 cm guy to me, and Jason looks a solid 180 cm with him as well I'd say.
cole said on 26/Sep/13
@Chameleon: I think he looks close to the 180 mark when they are peeing in the fountain, and you can see them in full stature, more or less on even ground and in similar footwear. That being said he can also look the full 4 inches shorter at times, and he could also come off as maybe 179 cm a lot. He's one of those 5'10 minimum - 5'11 maximum guys for sure. But mostly when I see him and Reynolds in pics together he looks near enough the 180 mark if we think Reynolds is a legit 6'2 flat.

Cant believe he is this tall. I always thought he was a 5'9 guy
gee said on 31/Jul/13
he has to be at least 5-10 after watching identity thief...the fat lady in it even had a mug shot revealing her height...I would say 5-10 to 5-11 after these day side by side
cole said on 29/Jul/13

What do you think Rob? It's kind of hard to tell with all the hair that is going on, but 5'11 range for Jason and 6'2 for Ryan seems about right.
[Editor Rob: I think about 5ft 11 is probably a fair guess for him]
Juicey said on 22/Jul/13
5'10 1/2 looked the same hieght at times or a half inch taller than cho in identity thief
gian92 said on 20/Jul/13
he is 5'11 because in identity thief he is taller than Jon cho about 2 o 3 cm
Len said on 19/Jul/13
He looks 5'10" in most everything I've seen him in.
Sam said on 3/Jun/13
I used to think he was close to six feet...he can look strong 5'11"+ next to Jennifer Garner, Charlie Day, Thomas Jane, etc. However, on the recent Arrested Development episode, he looks barely over 5'10", especially compared to Michael Cera.
flguy said on 27/May/13
I just finished watching the movie identity thief, and bateman looks the same as john cho who is listing here at 5'10..i say bateman is 5'10 max
penguinboy25 said on 13/May/13
I'd say he's between 5'10 and 5'11. Looks more than 3 inches shorter than Will Arnett.
Luther6ft said on 13/May/13
179-180 cm is about right if Reynolds is 187-188 cm.
HellBoundPower said on 13/May/13
It looks like he's almost exactly 3 inches shorter than 6'2" Ryan Reynolds. 5'11" seems perfect.
Hew said on 21/Jan/13
After watching him in AD he looks too short next to 6'1 Tony Hale and 6'2ish Will Arnett to be a flat out 180 cm man, might be 178 but nothing over that.
Jhc said on 12/Jan/13
U kidding me he looks 5'11 to Ryan reynolds if he was 5'8 he would be at Reynolds lips but if you have proof then show it
Trey said on 7/Jan/13
This looks right, might be a fraction lower.
mike 181cm said on 27/Dec/12
Batemans 5"11 you idiots watch movie change-up bathroom scene with Ryan Reynolds both have slippers on. Possible 181
Joey said on 16/Dec/12
5'8 is too much of a downgrade but so is 5'11 too much of an upgrade...I go with a 5'10 in barefeet
Miki90 said on 15/Nov/12
but here are all measured without shoes? eg I have 1.80 without shoes shoes touch the 1.82-183
AD said on 5/Nov/12
He seems to be in films with much taller people like Will Smith and Ryan Reynolds which make him appear smaller because they're in the 6'2" region.... but once he's next to people like 5'9.5" Kevin Stacey you see that he's about an inch taller than him ... he did seem to be around the same height as 5'11" John Astin in Teen Wolf Too.
Silent d said on 28/Oct/12
179cm.
rick said on 27/Oct/12
5"11? 5"10? Really?? What's wrong with folks here?
Haven't y'all seen him in movies/talk shows etc next to other movie/tv stars??
It's hard to even believe that barefoot he is over 5"8 (172.5 cm), at the most another half an inch or an inch if you're a huge fan an very generous!
But 5"10 or 5"11?? Not on this planet!
Sabre said on 26/Oct/12
No way he is 5'11, Will Arnett and Ryan Reynolds both tower over him.
Aragorn 5\'11 said on 22/Oct/12
I've seen him a couple of times in Los Angeles at the premieres of Horrible Bosses and The Change up. He looked 5'11 but he was wearing a good 1 to 2 inch of footwear. He's probably close to 5'10 but he's definitely not 5'11 barefoot. However, anything less than 5'9 for him is absolutely wrong.
Achepain said on 14/Aug/12
Rob, please watch the change up gag reel.....he looks so short next to Ryan Reynolds. 5ft 8 at best.....how on earth have you labelled him as 5ft 11.....
bodwaya said on 10/Aug/12
in teen wolf too (good movie by the way) he had an inch on 5 foot 11 john astin. He is six foot in shoes

looks short next to 5'9" Simon Pegg in "Paul" who in turn looks short next to 5'7" Nick Frost and 5'5" Kristen Wiig.

Bateman - 5'9.5"

Frost - 5'7"
Wiig - 5'6"
Paul - 4'1"

yes weak 5'11. next to 6'4.5 Vince Vaughn looks in 5'11 range could be 5'10.5 maybe less
linke said on 8/Nov/11
Bateman is 179 imo.
MR.HEIGHT said on 7/Nov/11
average sized actor 5'9" barefoot. footwear makes him look 5'10" to 5'11" now a days because of the better roles he plays.

You had him 181cm wath happened
[Editor Rob: I think a 5ft 11 on the nose is nearer]

He look as tall as 5'9.5 kevin spacey in horrible bosses.
AD said on 11/Oct/11
Really hard to pinpoint Jason's height but most definately between 178cm and 180cm. Stuart Fratkin who plays Stiles in Teen Wolf Too was in an episode of Friends stood with 5'11" - 5'11.5" Matthew Perry and was 2 inches shorter making him 5'9" - 5'9.5", ...in the film Jason Bateman was about an inch or so taller than him. He seemed marginally smaller than 5'11" John Astin. Also, this picture next to 6'1" Jason Sudeikis, ...2 and a half inches smaller? ...so all in all 179cm/5'10.5" might be the nearest. Click Here

His hair makes him look taller, but he's about 5'10"(178-179cm)
Genesis said on 22/Sep/11
5´11" is very generous, hardly looked 5´10" with Charlize Theron in Hancock. 5´9.5" is my guess.
Robbie said on 20/Sep/11
Rob, if you watched horrible bosses you'll find that Ioan gruffudd is at least an inch taller than Bateman. I would say Bateman is 5 ft 10.
Chameleon said on 16/Sep/11
5'10 is closer indeed, I saw it in a movie trailer with him and Ryan Reynolds, he looks way shorter.
L said on 11/Sep/11
strong 5'11" 6' might be pushing it a little

5´10 looks closer to be honest.

jtm said on 29/Jul/11
nowadays? he is only 42.
5\'8.56784 said on 28/Jul/11
I think he does look 5'11 flat nowadays, he also looks skinnier and weaker for some reason. In Horrible Bosses, solid 6'1 Jason Sudeikis has 2" over Bateman.
Philip said on 27/Jul/11
Not TALLER than 5'11, most likely 5'10.5".

the carl said on 11/Mar/11
bateman looks 5-10 1/2. one of those guys at the top end of average height who can really confuse people (you might think he's 5-10, you might guess 5-11, you might even think 5-11 1/2 if he is wearing dress shoes).

i really don't think he is over 5-11. he just doesn't look it. put him next to legit 6 footers, for example jon favreau, and he is definitely a bit shorter.

5\'7.37 said on 10/Jan/11
He is never dwarfed by legit 6'2 Will Arnett in AD, maybe his size is downplayed in some films to make him more average looking, like in The Swap. I'd say 6' flat. Maybe 5'11.93 lol.
linke said on 21/Dec/10
5'10.75 tops.
clown said on 20/Dec/10
Alan Tudyk (5'11 listed) has at least an inch on him in AD. I would call Bateman closer to 5'10 and Tudyk closer to 6'
Csar said on 25/Jun/07
On closer inspection, I think he might be close to 6'0. 5'11.5 seems reasonable. Not sure how accurate this is, but there is a picture of the AD cast by a height chart on that unreliable movie database web site. Now they are all wearing shoes, Bateman dress shoes, but he looks between 6'0 and 6'1 there, which would make him 5'11.5 or so? I am doubtful a link would work, but it is #10 of 38 under Jason Bateman.
glenn said on 24/May/07

dmeyer said on 21/May/07
after looking at pics he might just be 5'11
Csar said on 21/May/07
Did you get a picture with him or just happen to see him and place his height? Maybe it's just on the TV camera that he appears to have a "short man's body". Bradley Whitford was another guy I doubted being 5'11 based on the West Wing but his posture is terrible and he also has a "short body", but in pictures one can discern 5'11 next to other actors.
glenn said on 21/May/07
i just got him.5-11.rob has him perfect actually.how is padraig rob?

[Editor Rob: paddy has been back in Kilkenny, Ireland for a while. I did see him at the routh event earlier this month. He still lurks and was telling me, no, insisting to me that farrell is his height...in cowboy heels!]
Csar said on 21/May/07
This guy must have the exact same physique I do, because he looks 5'9 to 5'10 at most on his own and on AD but in pictures next to other celebrities it is clear he is 5'11ish. I have been told "there is no way you're 5'11 or anywhere close" and "you look 5'9, maybe 5'9 1/2", so I pulled out the measuring tape and was measured at 5'11 or maybe a hair under, like 180 cm metric. I don't know what it is about physiques like Bateman's but it is unfortunate to have one. Richard Ashcroft is the total opposite; he's 5'10 and looks 6'1-6'2.
Antron said on 15/Nov/06
5'11" even based on MD's pics

[Padraig: He is shorter than Peter Berg, but taller than David Arquette. 5 feet 11 is a logical estimate, I will aid the Editor with a little shave.]
mr mister said on 16/Sep/06
That picture with Kiefer is confusing as roughly his page stated him about (lets face it) 59, so with say 3 lifts he would be about 511. With a difference of about 2 or 3 with Bateman; it adds up that he is about 5ft 9????????
Anonymous said on 2/Apr/06
He always looks alot smaller on AD, because everyone else on the show is pretty tall as well.
Jimmy Webb said on 14/Oct/05
Kiefer I think has on lifts a lot. I mean the poor man is from a family of 6'4" giants and came out only average size.
Mate said on 14/Sep/05
Photo with kiefer sutherland - one of these guys posted heights must be wrong? Which one?
Mr. R said on 26/May/05
When he did The Hogan Family, he was at least 2 inches taller than Josh what's his name from Days of Our Lives who played his father. Josh was always listed at 5-10, but this was clearly untrue. I think this height is right.
sam said on 24/May/05
He never seemed like a tall guy, but he often stands surprisingly tall next to other actors. Even next to Vince Vaughn, who usually dwarves all other actors, Bateman didn't look all that small standing next to him.
MD said on 23/May/05
I'm not convinced that he's even 5'11" I really always thought he looked more around 5'10" really or maybe even and inch less but no shorter.
