How tall is Johnny Depp ?

Johnny Depp height: 5ft 9in (175 cm)

American actor best known for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Other notable films he has starred in have been Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland and Sleepy Hollow. One interviewer clearly thought he wasn't the 5ft 10 Depp has always got listed at (and was listed here at that height): "Its strange because although Johnny Depp is actually only 5' 7", he gives the illusion of being really tall.". Although he himself is quoted in the Spectator (5/10/94) as saying "I'm not the biggest guy in the world by any means -- I'm only five-foot-eleven"

Both in the movie Mortdecai and on premieres of the movie, Ewan McGregor (177cm) looks about an inch taller so he is probably not over 175. I would go for 174cm on Depp.
Shell says on 21/Mar/15
He's always slouching. He never looks above average, buf then his posture is so bad. He looks 5'9 and not 5'11, but then he doesnt seem like the vain type to play into Hollywood ideals. I think his "footwear" choices are more about his offbeat style. He likes boho looks (ie boots) or counter culture looks (ie creepers). I actually think many people dont know their true height, which is not static anyway, and so they just guesstimate. He is probably like 5'10 or so, just as a guess, since he slouches so badly.
CDS says on 2/Mar/15
The article I've mentioned in other threads from a magazine in the '90s, which compared actors' publicized heights with what they are speculated at had Depp's "official height" at 5'9", and a "best guess" at 5'8.5". Seeing that photo above with Tom Cruise (assuming both are doing some "heightening"-judging by the footwear), I'm going to say that 5'8.5" is right on the money. He can pull off 5'10" (in shoes) easily enough, but that 5'11" claim is ridiculous.
Heylo says on 26/Feb/15
@184.3cm, He looks unbelievably cool in that outfit he has. I really respect him for having integrity and character.

And just to be on topic.. I think he could be anywhere around 174-176 depending on sleep and posture. I think Rob's listing is pretty accurate.

Judd: visible shorter than Charlize Theron (5'9.75") in 1999, barefeet.

I'd say they looked pretty close. I'd give Johnny a solid 5'9"/5'9.5".

Yes, Depp wasn't much shorter at all, an inch max.
Arch Stanton says on 25/Feb/15
@Sam Watch The Astornaut's Wife. About 49 minutes through there's a scene with barefoot Charlize Theron and Depp in socks and he really looks 5'9 on the nose if she's 5'9.75.
184.3cm says on 19/Feb/15
And another with footwear although slouching from Depp.

Vanessa 5'6.5 to 5'7 in heels, absolute max he could be is 3 inches taller with better posture. So 5'10 in shoes so Rob has him good although i would argue maybe a shade smaller like 5'8.75. A full 5'9 is best case. Click Here
184.3cm says on 19/Feb/15
Seems to have had 4-4.5 inches on his former wife who Rob has listed 5'3.5. Some pics showed less than that even. Here his posture is good ofc footwear is not visible..Click Here

Yet to find a pic where he has 5 - 5.5 inches on her. Probably a lift wearer nowadays.
[Editor Rob: he has some scenes in Nightmare on Elm street with Heather Langenkamp and from meeting her and seeing Depp with her I do think he can pull off 5ft 9.]
meh says on 17/Feb/15
I seriously don't think he's 5'7". That would make him 4"taller than me. Not saying that it isn't possible. I look at the pictures of him and Amber from the premiere of 3 days to kill. Johnny is wearing about a 3" platform shoe. The hat also adds height. Plus even though Amber is in heels, in some of the pictures, you can tell that she is bending at the knees to look shorter than Johnny. (Bending at the knee with heels on, by personal experience.
Jeff says on 9/Feb/15
174 is out of question for Depp. 175 or 176
Sam says on 7/Feb/15
I find it hard to believe this guy is above 5'9.
174-175 cm?

I think 5'8.75-9" is fair!
fsd says on 4/Feb/15
looks 5'10 ft with his 2 inch shoes next to his 5'7 ft fiance i guess hes 5'8 ft
SAMMY DERRICK says on 4/Feb/15
I don't know whether it's his screen presence I thought he was 5'10(178cm)
I will give a range 5'8(173cm)to 5'10(178cm).

Clearly on 21 Jump Street you can tell he's average. Not tall, not short.
Koalized says on 24/Jan/15
Depp (in suspicious boots) looks shorter than McGregor (in standard shoes) in the pictures from the premiere of "Mordecai".
Jimmy Potential says on 23/Jan/15
@Jeff yes, but look at how suspicious Depp's shoes are. Mc Gregor is known to be 175.5/176. Max 174.5 for Depp
Jeff says on 22/Jan/15
Rob, who looks taller here, Depp or McGregor? Could 176 be possible for Depp? Click Here
[Editor Rob: the shot looks like it's taken from high up, so hard to tell exactly from it.]
Laura says on 11/Jan/15
I've never met him, but friend of mine did meet Johnny a few years back. She is 5"9 an was in flat shoes. She said Johnny was in boots with a heel that was about 2 inches high and he was still a little shorter than her. She said she was surprised because she expected him to be taller than her due to all the 5"11 and 5"10 claims. She said he is probably truly no taller than 5"7.
London Boy says on 2/Jan/15
5' 9" looks right. He can look 5' 10" at times but that's with bigger heels.
snath says on 11/Dec/14
he is not 5 foot 6 or 5 foot 9

hes 5 foot 7 or 5 8

and he's wearing bigger lifts then tom in that pic while jerry is wearing no lifts

in the show 21 jump street he did not look 5 foot 9 next to the other actor
who was a strong 6 footer
Suede says on 26/Nov/14
There is a scene in The Astronaute's Wife, where he is standing next to barefoot Charlize Theron (178cm) in a bathroom and he is about 3cm lower.

What do you think about this photo?
Sam says on 14/Nov/14
Does anyone here believe he could be 5'7.5-5'7.75?
Prince says on 10/Nov/14
Johnny Depp looks exactly my height. He's probably near or at 5'10" as soon as he gets out of bed but after being up on his feet for 5 or 6 hours shrinks to 5'9" or 5'9 1/4" barefoot. He's definitely 5'10 or higher with shoes that give an inch or more of height. He's an average size guy for U.S. standards.
Koalized says on 10/Nov/14
I have just seen some pictures of Amber Heard with James Franco(expecially from the premier of 'Pineapple Express'): if James Franco is 179 cm tall as reported by this website, then every height above 173-174cm (being REALLY generous) for Johnny Depp is not reasonable.
177cmGuy says on 3/Nov/14
He's always looked 175-177cm range to me. I don't believe the 5'11 claim but I don't believe the 5'7 or 5'8 claims either.He's not a tall actor but he ain't short either. Go Edward Scisshorhands!
Liam 176 says on 26/Oct/14
Look at that image below, with Noel Gallagher (5' 8"). He actually looks the same height as Liam Gallagher (5' 10") does with Noel. That's not below 5' 9", is it? Both with similar footwear too.
Heylo says on 19/Oct/14
According to several teen magazines back in the 80s he was either 5'10 or 5'11. Every actor gets told to round up their height or add 1-2 inches. He must be around 5'9, 174-176cm. Never looks short.
Orwell's Advocate says on 29/Sep/14
5'7-8 ish? I guess...
rockitbaby says on 28/Sep/14
But how is he 1,73m if his fiancée, Amber Heard, is as tall as him wearing high heels? She's quite tall.

Tides says on 24/Sep/14
More like 5'8" Rob just an inch over Cruise, who is closer to 5'7"
Sam says on 24/Sep/14
I saw some pics on Timothy Hutton and Mr. Depp ..
He maybe looks 5'8 at most. But if you compare him with Tim (while they're side by side) he looks about 3 inches shorter .. and Timothy is listed at 6'1 here.
Johnny's height is very hard to figure out exactly.

5'8.75 for Depp?
Tim says on 20/Sep/14
5-11 Lol
rockitbaby says on 19/Sep/14
Isn't AMber Heard 1,73 or something? How is she, een with high heels, still the same height as Johnny is he's 1,75m? I think he's around 1,78m. Next to Leo Dicaprio he's just slightly shorter.

guest says on 18/Sep/14
They make someone look any size they want in the movies.
JD doesn't look to be 5 feet 9 outside of them.

There are heels on the boots and he platforms on the shoes in the pics on this page.
A clear sign of lifts inside is when the person walks like they are on stilts. says on 16/Sep/14
onlytrue,do you have any source of that hospital record?
onlytrue says on 4/Sep/14
Some of the people on here are deluded. How is it not glaringly obviously to everyone his boots (a short mans red carpet choice of footwear) are packed with lifts? You can even see the way the bottom of his trousers are bulging at his ankle!

If you did your research you'd find that he's been measured in a hospital at 5'7 & 1/2. Cruise is no more than 169. Thats it. The heights on here are way off
Tarik says on 30/Aug/14
Well, I'm 174cm and I certainly don't look as tall as he does in movies and pictures even with added footwear.
Heylo says on 26/Aug/14
Talrik, you can't estimate someones height based on movies. Yes, he do look 5'10 in movies. That's because he is probably about 5'10 with shoes on. He also has the kind of "small ankles, small forearms" genes, that always makes you look taller than you are. Easily looks ripped when training, hard to add fat to his body. It's typical Depp, except that his metabolism probably have changed a lot now when he is 50.

I personally believe he is 174cm.
John says on 23/Aug/14
I met Johnny back in a bar in 2009 I am 5'8 and he was the same height cool guy though
Tarik says on 22/Aug/14
To me he doesn't look like someone who's 5'8 or 5'9. More like a 5'10 guy. I'm 5'8 and although I never met Depp, I'm pretty sure he is at least 2 inches taller than me. At least, that's how tall he looks in movies. Great actor!
Sam says on 16/Aug/14
Is 5'9.25 (peak height) possible?

5'8.75 today maybe ...
Koalized says on 31/Jul/14
In the first photo next to Jerry Bruckheimer considering the shoes advantage and the posture (he's standing on the left legs tiptoeing a little bit on the right foot) he doesn't look 5'9''
idontlie says on 31/Jul/14
5'7 .. he wears giant lifts
radu says on 31/Jul/14
Check this out adrien brody steven tyler johnny depp and jim carrey...adrien looks soooooooooooo short..
Oanh says on 30/Jul/14
I like Johnny as an actor, but I had to laugh at his 5'11" comment. He's not even 5'10" let alone 5'11". He is a solid 5'9".
Tyler says on 25/Jul/14
5'8.5 barefoot
spiky says on 23/Jul/14
he's definetely taller than tom cruise so he's closer to 5'9"
TJE says on 22/Jul/14
I have a friend who has the same exact build Johnny had when he was younger, and I presume they're the same height too. Said friend is 175-176 but when he drops his posture he seems 171-172 range. I'd say Depp does the same thing. 5'9 is a good guess.
Arch Stanton says on 13/Jul/14
He does actually look 5 ft 8 range in Transcendence though, definitely noticeably shorter than Rebecca Hall.
Arch Stanton says on 9/Jul/14
Rob would you be surprised if he was the same height as you? I think he looks taller, but he does wear Cubans a lot and his hair at times can make him seem taller.
[Editor Rob: I can't see him my height, he generally looks taller]
Arch Stanton says on 9/Jul/14
@ Sam I could believe 5'8.5" but no lower. I really do think he's near that 5'9" mark. I would be surprised if he only measured a flat 5 ft 8 at least in the morning/midday.
SaveUsY2J says on 8/Jul/14
@Sam- Not a chance he's lost that much at only 51.
Sam says on 7/Jul/14
Peak - flat 5'9 (age 21+)
Today - 5'8.25 (age 51)

Is it possible?
Sam says on 6/Jul/14
@Gil He looks barely 5'7 to me .. in shoes ..
Gil says on 1/Jul/14

Amber looks 5'11 in high heels and could be 5'7 barefoot. Meanwhile Johnny looks 5'9 and appears to be in normal dress shoes. Doesn't seem to be any lifts there.
antropolog says on 28/May/14
And yes Johnny always wears at least 2 inch shoes lifts so he could look taller than he is. On the picture with Antonio, Johnny was wearing lifts, but still he's the same height as him. And in Pirates of the Carribean he was wearing lifts too so that difference between him and Orlando wouldn't be so obvious, although he was shorter than Orlando even with lifts, but still not as short as he actually is.
antropolog says on 27/May/14
He's the same height as Antonio Banderas (174 cm)

and shorter than Orladndo Bloom (179 cm)

RisingForce says on 26/May/14
Nah, look at the video, Depp couldn't have had less than 2 inches on Bruckheimer, in fact, look at 1:10 in the video, you see Depp straighten up and gain some height. At that point, he actually looks more like 3 inches taller, and while that could have to do with the video being from a distance, there can't be less than 2 inches between them that day. As for shoes, I think normal shoes like Bruckheimer's typically add about an inch, while cowboy boots add about 1.75" so close to an inch difference, but not quite.
Arch Stanton says on 26/May/14
As Rising says they're just Cuban heeled boots. If they were lifts they'd have a high back on them and have a suspicious sloping and have that popping out look.
Felix says on 25/May/14
We put it like this: Johnny Depp has minimum 1 inch footwear advantage on Jerry. Johnny looks maximum 1,5 inch taller than Jerry. If Jerry is 5'7, it's proven that Johnny isn't more than 5'8. I agree on that Johnny gives a slim tall impression which Tom don't. 5'9 is too much.
RisingForce says on 25/May/14
Nah, just looks like cowboy boots to me, which add quite a bit of height for a mans shoe, but a bit under 2 inches usually. Cruise definitely looks to have a bit of a footwear advantage on Depp, and both have bigger shoes than Bruckheimer. Use to think Johnny was about 5'9.5" for some reason, but this 5'9" listing seems good. Would be very surprised if he was more than a half inch from 5'9" in either direction.
hey says on 25/May/14
Looks like Johnny Depp have lifts too: Click Here
the shredder says on 24/May/14
Yea , under 5 '9 is downgrading , but 5'10 and 5 '11 are fanboys
Arch Stanton says on 24/May/14
I've seen all of those Felix. I depends on the photograph. As I say he slouches in close photographs typically. He always looks 5'9" ish to me.
RisingForce says on 24/May/14
Here's video of that day with Cruise and Bruckheimer. Click Here Bruckheimer is thought to be around 5'7" so Cruise looks at least 5'8.5"-5'9" in comparison and Depp has a half inch to an inch on Cruise depending on posture and more than 2" on Bruckheimer as he should with cowboy boots. Depp's cowboy boots should add about 1.75", but Cruise obviously has lifts in his boots, just check out the angle of his foot in his picture, particularly compared to Depp's boots. Click Here You can also compare Cruise's knee height and length to Depp who was in big shoes himself. Cruise has actually become more obvious with his lifts in recent years because he continues to wear jeans that are both tight and not long enough for boots with lifts.
SaveUsY2J says on 23/May/14
He ain't under 5'9.
Felix says on 23/May/14
Arch Stanton, no I have watched them all, yeah he is slouching, LOL Click Here I don't know about Toms footwear, but Johnny has high heels too. He's 2cm taller than Tom not considering the footwear.

Here's a pic from the Donnie Brasco premiere,Click Here Johnny is slouching, but there's no possibly way 3-4 inch advantage for Johnny Depp, EVER.
Arch Stanton says on 23/May/14
He does have slope advantage in that shot though but I can't see anything under a 3 inch difference in watching Donnie Brasco.
Arch Stanton says on 23/May/14
He tends to slouch in photographs when they're taken together so can look shorter. The best photos of him are screen captures or from a distance when he isn't slouching. Click Here Clearly 3-4 inches taller than Pacino in the film. In some photographs of them together though it can look nearer 2 inches.
Arch Stanton says on 23/May/14
You could argue 5'8.5" but I really can't see him under that.
Arch Stanton says on 23/May/14
@Felix. Uh, no, I have seen the Tom Cruise pics and you're relying on ones in which the camera is close and he's slouching. Click Here If you view them properly from a distance you can see in no way are they the same height. You need your eyes tested if you think in the long shot he isn't noticeably taller. And yes, he had minimum 3 inches on Pacino who I have at 5'5.5" peak. I remember watching it and thinking not sure how anybody could think Depp is under 5 ft 9.
Felix says on 22/May/14
Arch Stanton, noo, watch the latest pictures of Depp, Cruise and Bruckheimer and you'll se that it's not the case. In Donnie Brasco he didn't look 3-4 inches taller than Pacino AT ALL. I remember Glenn had a picture with Johnny here before while he was shooting Donnie Brasco and Glenn said he was wearing cuban heeled shoes. Glenn wasn't much shorter than Johnny at all, and Glenn was 169 cm and Johnny had cuban heeled shoes. This picture is also good, Johnny has the footwear advantage with miles over Kate Moss, and he stands in a way that makes you taller, and he's STILL not much taller than Kate Moss. Click Here
Arch Stanton says on 22/May/14
Depp also had an easy 3 inches on Pacino in Donnie Brasco, between 3 and 4 inches it looked to me.
Arch Stanton says on 22/May/14
Really Sam?? see him next to 6'4,5" Armie Hammer!! Depp is clearly taller than Tom Cruise. He looks a clear 5 ft 9 to me.
Sam says on 22/May/14
Yeah, dude ..
I find it hard to believe he's 5'9. He's probably not above 173 cm.
It's definitely time for a downgrade, at least half an inch or so.
Felix says on 21/May/14
Sam, I think you are spot on! 5'8 today. What do you say Rob, time for a downgrade of this guy? He's almost always 1-2 cm taller than Bruckheimer, and is 1 cm taller than Cruise in the most recent pictures. I don't know for sure about Toms shoes but Bruckheimer at 171cm is still not far from them in height and Johnny is wearing boots. Didn't look 5'9 i Fear and Loathing with Del Toro either and there he was in low Converse. 5'8 is right.
Sam says on 20/May/14
Maybe 172-173 cm nowadays (5'8), and more like 5'8.75 (strong 174 cm) at 21+

Is it possible?
Brad A. says on 19/May/14
Only 5'11"? I would LOVE to be only 5'11"
Pizzaman says on 13/May/14

Eddie Veddar is listed as 170 but more realistically is like 168.5. Depp is noticably taller but more like 174 I guess. But yeah, they are both moving all the time, but just to give an idea that Depp is more at the weak 5'9" range than 5"10" I'd say.
Clay says on 11/May/14
5'11'' is average-like.
Joaquin says on 8/May/14
Seems as though his height is difficult to pinpoint, just to make it harder, In the link Johnny's next to Leo DiCaprio who's 5"11.5 on this website, about an inch difference at most, so if Johnny's wearing half an inch more heels, still makes him 5"10 minimum, doesn't it?
Click Here says on 7/May/14
maybe a downgrade to 5'8 would be closer to the truth
Realist says on 6/May/14
172 maybe possible.
shorty says on 6/May/14
I'm only 5'6" without shoes, and when I saw Depp in Vegas, we were eye to eye. I was surprised that we were the same height.
Anti-Tory says on 1/May/14
If the guy we saw in the pub was Johnny Depp (and I think he was), he's 5'7" at the most. He was certainly merry, but, even allowing for brewer's slouch, he was nowhere near 5'9". Love his claim to be 'only' 5'11". :)
Seb says on 29/Apr/14
If people are wearing the same shoe-wear and they are at the same level to a reflective surface you can actually gauge how tall the other person is - if you are not lying to yourself about your own height to begin with. When I was younger I made a mistake. I thought that because this other guy was younger that he was 2 inches shorter than me. It turned out that he was two inches taller. From that time onward I make the necessary corrections when guessing other people’s height and am reasonably accurate about their heights. If they are at a distance, don't bother, because you're not going to be close to guessing their height correctly. If someone tells me that they saw Jonny Depp close up and were able to see the two of them on a reflective surface I'd be more convinced they got Depp's height right.
Sam says on 28/Apr/14
I think he's at least in the 5'8-range. Well, if he's really 5'7 i accept the fact, but personally i think he looks about 5'8.5-5'8.75 ... maybe a full 5'9 when he was 21+
alibaba says on 20/Apr/14
Not more than 5'7'' at any cost
Spike says on 19/Apr/14
He looked a solid inch and a half shorter than 5'9.5 Rebecca Hall in Transcendence. Even while she was wearing flats and he dress shoes, she was noticeably taller.
Damon says on 16/Apr/14
Watched Depp next to Jimmy Kimmel and looked two inches shorter, but his shoes looked like they had a thick sole

Johnny Depp is actually 5'8.75. He always wears 2.5 inch heels, so yes he is 5'11... at movie premieres! LOL

Heylo 5ft11 can be tall in the US really? im 5ft10.5 and I feel average and I live uk 5ft11 is average not tall
Allwn says on 31/Mar/14
What intelligent, sane person cares how tall a person is? I AM 6'2", 180 POUNDS. As a kid, I only lost one fight of many when I was 12. I lost it to a boy who didn't come up to my chest.I wouldn't lose to him again, but who cares? We are grown now. Are you? Today there are women boxers and wrestlers who can beat the living sh-t out of me and you. And I taught hand-to-hand combat in the Army as a lieutenant. I could probably kick the a-s of most of you children who think that height is the sign of a man and spend your lives on cell phones, ans making smart comments on the internet after watching TV all day and getting fat and stupid.And I am 72 years old. The last fight I had, after not hitting a man since I was 22 years old, was when a smart mouthed 57 year old laborer man who had sexually molested a crazy woman who was 34, causing her to try to commit suicide. I told hlm to leave the state because when she got out of the hospital, I would escort her to the police to swear out a warrant for his arrest. He then hit me then with a bar stool in a coffee shop, so I kicked his butt.No one wins a fight and guess what, children. if you get in a fight, somebody is going to jail and ity just might be you.Grow up! get a air. it takes more courage to turn the other cheek than it takes to hurt someone who is as stupid as you.

5'7 is a joke , even a thin 5'7 guy would not look his height , he is an average range guy thats slim that can look tall.
Felix says on 26/Mar/14
I don't know how tall Shane MacGowan is, but if the listning is right at 176-177cm. Johnny for sure isn't more than 173cm. But yeah, Johnny has tall proportions, not stocky as cruise, so he can give the impression of being taller than he is I think. In almost every photo he looks a half inch taller than Jerry Bruckheimer. He's 5'8, what do you say Rob? Met him?
Heylo says on 24/Mar/14
"I'm not the biggest guy in the world by any means -- I'm only five-foot-eleven" ... LOL Not the biggest? 5'11 can be tall in the US, especially for his generation. Today it is slightly over average.

However, Depp to me often looks something between 5'8 and 5'9. Slim build and thick sole boots can make him 5'10-5'11 and that's probably his height at the awards and stuff but barefoot i would guess 173cm or something. In 21 Jump Street (in the 80s) he had these thick sole boots on and looked close to 5'11 in that tv-show while Brad Pitt was on the show at the same time and he looked like a natural 5'10-5'11 compared to Depp who needed boots to look like that.
Tim181 says on 23/Mar/14
That interviewer must have been high or something, Depp can't be only 5'7 and he definitely can't give illusion of being really tall at just 5'9.
Felix says on 22/Mar/14
I agree that he's not 5'7, and he's not a full 5'9. 174cm morning, 173cm day.
the shredder says on 21/Mar/14
He is not under 5'8.5
Felix says on 19/Mar/14
When Johnny played John Dillinger he was quoted saying: "And - get this - we're the same size!". John Dillinger is listed at 5'7.

I also remember reading somewhere that he tried John Dillingers old clothes.

Madam tussauds has him at about 5'7 max. Someone go check him out at the london location.
284327_ka says on 17/Mar/14
Damon, I agree with you. I think that Cruise is 170-171cm, And Depp is 173cm (+/- cm.
Damon says on 17/Mar/14
i think its funny a lot of people assume that Cruise is wearing lifts in the pictures, which he probably is. But, i don't hear any mention of Depp's shoes, which look like they have a good inch maybe more to them. I don't think those two are too far off in height
284327_ka says on 16/Mar/14
Damn... Guys, you're right. That's not De Niro. But... I still think that Johnny is more likely to be 173/174 than full 175cm. :)
Aldorf Hitmier says on 16/Mar/14
His height is quite easy to establish by simply looking at the opinion of experts on the matter......He is 5`7", 5`9", 5`10" and 5`11", all at the same time !!!
GUY says on 15/Mar/14
That's not De Niro it's Hunter S Thompson who was over 6ft
Felix says on 15/Mar/14
That's not Robert De Niro, that's Hunter S. Thompson. But I think you are right on Johnnys height, I always seen him as a 173cm guy. Remember the picture with Glenn, he was wearing boots said Glenn, and he was like 1-2 inch taller than Glenn with those on. 5'8 is probably spot on day height. 174cm morning height.
284327_ka says on 15/Mar/14
Well, I really think that Johnny is a bit smaller that 175cm, I mean He's about 174cm, 173cm, maybe even 172cm? I have some pics and Depp is: same as Richards ~~, shorter than De Niro(?), and i have one photo where Johnny seems to be about same height as Amber Heard(?), I don't know. What do you think Rob? Is 173cm, or 174cm possible for Depp? Other question: Do you think he lost much of his height, he's 50 already...?

@Arch Stanton
Do you really see 1.5 inches difference in height in that pics? 1.5 inches are 4 cm roughly...Depp and Cruise, considering the different hairstyle and the perspective , look almost the same height to me.
About the shoes: Cruise shoes looks clumpy, but Depp shoes are huge too (from outside the heels of Depp boots looks a lot thicker than the Cruise shoes, but who know inside...)
truth says on 2/Mar/14
true that Arch, Cruise is notorious for lifing Click Here
but I was looking at the full length pic showing shoes as well Click Here

Tom's shoes show his typical extra boost but Johnny Cool wears boots. I was looking at their knee, crotch and shoulder levels which all seem to be on the same line. Depp does look a bit taller like you said though but not by a full inch. What do you reckon?
divincodino92 says on 28/Feb/14
170, max!
Arch Stanton says on 28/Feb/14
Depends on the photo:

Click Here Looks about 1.5 inches taller here

Click Here Looks about the same height here

I think though you'd find that Depp is the taller guy.
Arch Stanton says on 28/Feb/14
Click Here

They don't look the same height to me truth at all, and Cruise's footwear looks clumpy. I honestly think he's a clear cut 5'9" er. Obviously 5'11" is silly, but I really think 5'9-5'9.5" would be far more likely than 5'7" or even 5'8".
Arch Stanton says on 28/Feb/14
Cruise often pulls off looking taller though Truth, I'm not convinced that he doesn't have a helping hand from his footwear on occasions. He actually looked 5'9 range next to J. Ross and J. Clarkson but who knows what's on his feet.
truth says on 27/Feb/14
Arch, I usually agree with you but boy, when you're wrong, you really swing for the fences! The pic where he's equal height with Tom Cruise tells it all. Either that or Cruise suddenly experienced a growth spurt in his fifties haha
Lorne says on 25/Feb/14
I doubt Armie is a true 6ft4.5, look at the mugshot... Shredder, I highly doubt 177cm, actually they're is better chance of Will at 6ft1.5 then Depp being 5ft9.5. I think 5ft8.75-5ft9.25 is arguable for Depp. But sub 174? Not a chance.
MASsacre says on 21/Feb/14
So I don't know how is possible that he looks so short than MacGowan(176 cm) in the pics that I found :
the shredder says on 18/Feb/14
Could even be 5'9.5 . Under 5'9 is bull. but he sure is not legit 5'10 let alone 5'11. Some people just love to downgrade , Like it is going to make them feel better.
[Editor Rob: I believe in something like sweeney todd he looked about 3 inches shorter than jamie campbell...and he is a typical 6 footer in person.]
the shredder says on 18/Feb/14
Him and Tom make Martin look like a kid and Martin Claims 5'7 , 5'8

Oh c'mon. He's not under 5'9". Click Here with 6''4.5" Armie Hammer.

Seriously Rob, have you seen those pictures of Depp with Tom Cruise. They have the EXACT same height. Now I don't know how to link pictures but if you search their names on g!o!o!g!l!e! it'll show up. I don't really have any reason to care about downgrading or upgrading Depp. I just want you to rethink this listing after looking at the above pictures. If you still have doubts, then I believe you.

He can be 5'9.5.
176,2Tunman says on 6/Feb/14
Honestly,he looks very close to Bloom and doesn't seem that small next to Butler.Seems like he's definitely an average guy.He actually looks more 5'10 than 5'9 in most of his films but there is generally a moment at which he finally gives the impression of being only 5'9. So maybe his real height is the mark he appears the least.
Statham for instance always looked shorter, even in pics than Knepper whom Rob met and thought was 5'9. Still, DMEYER saw Statham and said he looked a legit 5'9 in person.
Rich Hall says on 3/Feb/14
Evidence is crystal clear on the Jerry Cruise Depp pic Click Here
Depp & Cruise wear equivalent Nasa Lift off 2 the Moon shoes with maybe .5 xtra inch to Captain Cruise.
Notice how both always sport suspicious footwear. When no "real" reference next to him, Johnny can look taller in his fetish boots thanks to his good proportions and relatively slim build. Cruise is no slob in the physique department but being an endomorph with wide hips and shortish limbs, dude looks shorts even when lifting

I think he's closer to 5'8. 172-174 cm.

As listed. With Swift with JD in probably Keith Richards boots he lives in to TS heels it fits. Wonder why he lied saying 5' 11", I thought he didn't care about such things. Hey Johnny DHST's ghost looms at the WCT bro, I was just there.
jimmyjet says on 16/Jan/14
Ya i can add particular incite into this inquiry...i'm 5'8.75 hospital record no shoes, lifts, boots, whatever. Small frame people look taller period. Depp is a small frame person. so he may very well be 5'8.5 and call him self 5'11. I could hell his height right away if i could only stand next to him, with or without boots.
FM says on 16/Jan/14
I have a hard time believing this guy is 5'9". And his claim of 5'11" is ridiculous - maybe with boots on, yeah I could believe it, or 5'10.5" probably.

Look at him in this pic with 5'7" Jerry Bruckheimer. Look at his shoes and Bruckheimer's shoes. Depp clearly has a bigger heel. If they had equal footwear, then I'd buy him at 5'9" but not with the heels he has on.

I think he is 5'8" tops.

Rosie says on 1/Dec/13
I've seen him couple of times at airports and he's not more than 5'7". His height should be downgraded to that. Both the times people near me whispered shockingly that he is actually so short in real life.
John says on 30/Nov/13
Michelle Obama is 5'11 and is a bit taller than Johnny. Considering that he's got tall shoes that makes him 5'9. I can't see how it's possible for him to be less than that.
Koalized says on 30/Nov/13
If you take a look at my post on 1 november, there is a pic of Depp next Burton during the same event. You can clearly see several inches of difference, and Depp has shoes advantage
John says on 29/Nov/13
I've seen a pic online where Tim and Johnny are with the Obama family (maybe it's the same pic you posted) and Tim looks 5'11. The point is that Johnny looks almost 5'11 there, so that still confuses me.. I can't figure out if he's 5'10 or 5'9
Lawrence says on 28/Nov/13
depp is a legit 5'9.5" he has angle advantage over bruck and cruz, he is taller than cruz. Cruz is 5. i want you to get a piece a paper and mark the length of all 3 men from head to were you think there bottom of their feet is really in their shoe, thats it... thats their height. Depp has 1.5-2" on bruck and cruz is roughly the same or 1"
Lawrence says on 28/Nov/13
JOhn, in that pic,Depp has 2" over him (you can calculate by the Depp's bottom of chin arriving at middle of Bruck's mouth which from the middle of mouth ot bottom of Bruck's chin is average 2" in humans) so add 2" of height to Bruck's height = 5'9.5" Now depp has no more than .5" insoles in those shoes so 5'9" for Depp and same with Cruz. but i think cruz is a smidge shorter at 5'8.5"

And here is the right pic everybody was looking for...

I've posted this pic before!! XD
In my opinion considering shoes advantage Depp looks shorter than 5'9'', in particular compared to Bruckheimer wearing regular shoes.

About the Tim Burton's pic: do you really see just half inch difference??
However take a look at my post on 1 November, Burton looks way shorter (more than 3 cm) than 185cm Obama.
John says on 26/Nov/13
Click Here

And here is the right pic everybody was looking for. Bruckheimer is 5'7.5 and Tom Cruise looks about 5'9 (if you look at the shoes you will notice they are the ones he used when with Cameron Diaz, with the extra lift). Johnny wears lifts and looks about 5'10. That means he's about 5'9
John says on 26/Nov/13
Click Here

With 5'11.5 Tim Burton he looks 5'11
Mathew says on 26/Nov/13
I can't see anything above the 5'8.5" - 5'9" range for Depp. He's not a tall man. His 5'11" quote is ridiculous.
Morgz says on 25/Nov/13
I met Johnny Depp years ago while he was filming Benny and Joon (probably 1992 or so). I doubt very seriously as a grown man he has gotten much taller since then. He is very short. I am 6' tall and he was way shorter than I am. I would guess the 5'7" referenced in the blurb above is accurate.
Koalized says on 24/Nov/13

Lawrence says on 23/Nov/13
Are you guys retarded?? Do you even know how much 2.5" lifts would be? the average shoe is about 1" you can stuff maybe .5" of insoles at most to make it 1.5" total but to say 2.5" lifts is hilarious! what kinda funny shoes does depp wear then? LoL or does he wear cowboy boots all the time with lifts in those? LoL. There is no such thing as a regular looking shoe with 2.5" lifts that would look retarded on Depp. Depp is no shorter than 5'9" and no taller than 5'9.5"
Bo Dimira says on 23/Nov/13
Depp is at least 5'9", probably taller. Just look at him standing next to Traci Lords at the Cry Baby reunion. Traci is 5'7" and is wearing high heels, Depp is still clearly several inches taller
John says on 22/Nov/13
@Koalized @Troy
I think you're right, he's not over 5'9. But I still think it's absurd to think he can be less than that..
the shredder says on 21/Nov/13
5'11 is as bad as 5'7.5 , I think no way under 5'8.5 or over 5'10.
Troy says on 19/Nov/13
John says on 10/Nov/13
Seriously guys, how can you think Johnny Depp is only 5'9? Come on, he's taller than that! Rob, I think you might add one inch here.. Definitely a 5'10 man

Because he wears a lift that's why he can look 5'10-11" most of the time.Just watch Pirates film then you'll see what i mean. Depp is 5'8.5" guy with a 1.5-2 inch lift to look 5'10-11" guy.
Koalized says on 18/Nov/13
take a look at some of the pictures i posted. I would like to see some pics of Depp looking taller of legit 5'8''-5'9'' guys (considering footwear), could you post some of them? or at least tell us where we can find that images, because 'till now I've found just pics of him looking shorter than 5'10'' guys and roughly the same height as 5'8''-5'9'' guys (wearing big boots)as you can see in my posts. Moreover in a couple of italian Depp's fansite (I'm italian) I found comments of different fans who met him saying they were shocked Depp was just a little bit over 5'7'' in person. Even in the comments of a video on youtube of Depp arriving in Ciampino (Rome airport)for the premiere of the Tourist you can read (if you understand italian) the same opinion by people that saw Depp at the arrival in the airport (one call him "nanetto" that means dwarf, and the average height of men in Italy is 5'9'')
John says on 15/Nov/13
@Nickname are you kidding?
You average and tall guys have no idea who short men really are. I don't think you had got a yardstick with you when you met him.. and honestly, I think you are wrong. Johnny Depp can't be less than 5'10. Look at him with all of the 5'8 and 5'9 guys and you'll see a big difference
Nickname says on 12/Nov/13
Johnny Depp is not a tall guy. I've stood next to him in person and he was a lot shorter than me (5' 11") he was around 5' 7" -5' 7.5" max.

Rob says "ABOUT 5 ft 9"! that means Depp is not a full and strong 5'9". He is a true 5'8.5"-5'8.75" guy. I'd say that Depp is a solid 5'8.5" guy.
Yves says on 5/Nov/13
I guess he stands the same height as 5'10.
MD says on 5/Nov/13
How's he still listed at 5'9"?
Troy says on 5/Nov/13
Rob do you really think Depp is a strong 5'9" guy? Or you just rounded it to that because sometimes you may think that he's only 5'8"-5'8.5"?
[Editor Rob: I think about 5ft 9 is perfectly fair for him. I'd rule out 5ft 10 or 8]
77Stan says on 4/Nov/13
There IS difference if you compare Depp with short or taller guys, especially those short guys like Tom Cruise are often said to be wearing lifts. That means the result by comparing with short guys is not that reliable. But taller guys don't wear lifts as often as short guys. So, it is more accurate.

Whenever someone computes a person's height by looking at him/her or comparing with someone else, I don't take it seriously. No nurse tells me how tall I'm by just a look at me, or taking a phone of me with another nurse. Hehehe.

The way I see it this site is for entertainment. Maybe good for promoting elevator shoes. Hehehe.
Troy says on 3/Nov/13
JYDE says on 26/Feb/13
Hospital records show Mr. Depp's height as being 5'7 & 1/2. If you don't believe it, do some research for yourselves!

Hospital records are almost correct but not 100% correct. If Depp was 5'7.5" in hospital then he must really be at exact 5'8.5" because in hospital height measurement is not accuratethat you need to add an inch for you to get your correct height. Am I right rob?
[Editor Rob: I've been measured at the hospital and both times 173cm, for me it was accurate.]
Troy says on 3/Nov/13
I compared Depp with tall guy while you compared him with short guys. Hehehe. Funny.

Yes you can compare him to taller guys like armie but there's no difference if you compare him to short or taller guys. My point here is that you should know how to compute the height of ones person. Do you know how yo compute by the way you look at it no matter if he's with short or taller guys?
Shanya says on 2/Nov/13
I've seen him wearing ordinary sneakers and shooting ( strange, I don't remmenber the movie) and he couldn't have been more than 5'7", atleast about an inch shorter than my father who's about 5'9". However, irrespctive of his height, he's an incredibly attractive man, really really handsome (even more so in person), nice and friendly to everyone around. A true movie star and one of the greatest sex symbols (deservingly so, imo)

From the Halloween Party at the white house of some years ago:
here you can see the First Lady with worse posture and ballerina shoes still taller than Johnny Depp (who is wearing the Mad Hatter boots and has an impeccable posture).

tom cruise is 5'7" or 5'7.5" so as jerry who is 5'7" to 5'7.25" and depp was only an inch or an inch and half taller to both of them considering he has a larger heels by 1/3 according to rob.

Johnny Depp is either 5'8" or 5'8.5" max.

Anybody who seriously thinks he's under 5 ft 9 see Donnie Brasco. A stronger case for 5 ft 10 than 5ft 8 IMO.Agreed with Troy though he's one of the tougest to nail height on, he's sort of one of those guys who is heightless isn't he, that height becomes irrelevant over him.I honestly think he looks 176-77 more than 173
Arch Stanton says on 17/Oct/13
LOL if he's 5'7" Pacino is near Pesci's height!! In Donnie Braco Depp looks between 3 and 4 inches taller than Pacino. He looks 5'9.5"
in the film.
lelman says on 17/Oct/13
Anywhere from 5'8" to 5'9.5" is a fair guess. Never seen the guy in person, but never looks under average in anything. Looked easily 3 inches taller than Pacino is Donnie Brasco.
Silent d says on 16/Oct/13
5 foot 9. 170cm is a bit short for him. Bodwaya eastwood and alpacino have range. Eastwood only plays grumpy old men now but in his prime he was killing it. Alpacino is a master of his craft. Freeman is a legend and bacon is underrated.

We keep racing in circles here.

This is because the most of the posts here contain just words without any proof, this is the difference between philosophy and science. After 2000 years of philosophical discussions people in the middle age thought that the Earth was flat while a simple trigonometric demostration made by a greek mathematician (Eratosthenes) centuries before Christ and based on simple evidences proved that it is spherical. But talking is so keep on.
Meltdown says on 10/Oct/13
We keep racing in circles here. Matthew and Mathew are both right. Depp is 5'8.75 mid-day. If you want to know his morning height, add half an inch. End of day height, subtract a quarter inch. Still can't do math? Fine! I'll do it for you, but just this once.

Morning height: 5'9.25
Mid-day: 5'8.75
Night-time: 5'8.5
Night-time with 2.5 inch heels: 5'11

Claiming 5'9 is best. DONE!

I watched these pics here below .. and Johnny is wearing shoes with a 1 1/2 inch-heel (i guess if i'm not blind)
He might be around 174-175 cm (about 5'9), but 172 cm is also possible i think. A weak 5'8 for him, maybe. Peak - 175 cm.

Troy says on 18/Sep/13
Johnny is 5'8"-5'8.5" but more likely 5'8.5". He really never look exact 5'9" and to his frame too. 5'8.5" is the height of Johnny that's why rob has him at 5'9" and sometimes can easily look 5'10-11" with big heels on and also most of the time people see him as 5'7-8" because the truth is Johnny Depp is 5'8.5"! Am i right rob?
Troy says on 18/Sep/13
Johnny's height is really hard to tell because in the series 21 jumpstreet he really look tall next to Peter Deluise and Peter himself is 6'1" so i guess Johnny was around 5'11" in that series but now i can see him only atleast 5'8" in the movies i saw him recently. And most of you people here see him only at 5'7"?? Rob what do you think of this?
denter says on 16/Sep/13
i never saw over 5-8.5 (174 cm) for him ever but even solid 5-8 looks right to me
nagaden says on 10/Sep/13
Was next to him while shopping at American Rag in SF. He's around 5'6" maybe 5'7". My g-friend at the time is 5'3" and she was as tall with heels. His handprint at Planet Hollywood is also tiny. Small guy.
Alice says on 31/Aug/13
I saw him while they were shooting The Lone Ranger in Arizona. I'm 5'6 and he wasn't a lot taller than me, wearing shoes. I think 5'7 sounds right, maybe 5'8. More than that is being too generous.
f says on 29/Aug/13
he can't be more than 5-8 without shoes..he was only an inch taller than cruise and they were side by side
Koalized says on 28/Aug/13
There is just a magazine old of 20 years ( when Depp was not yet a star,and a greatest part of his fans was teenager girls that prefer tall guy) that quotes these words by Depp, and this quote would be silly even if Depp is 5'9". For what we know that quote should be partially wrong (newspapers often have mistakes in their articles) or totally invented!
Sain\\\'t says on 23/Aug/13
I dont think he would claim 5'11" if he wasn't atleast 5'9" or a less likely 5'10" at his very possible tallest or with shoes. He would just look silly. I think 5'9" is very fair.
Cal92 says on 22/Aug/13
He came to UC Berkeley to speak and I'm 5'9.5 barefoot. He was a lot shorter than me. 5'7 max.
IndroB says on 12/Aug/13
Sorry, I met Depp in Rome (he was there to promote "The Tourist"). I passed right by him. I am 5'10.5'' and was wearing sneakers.
He is very attractive, very polite (he actually waved to me first; he saw I was staring at him, trying to figure out whether I wasn't mistaken; I wasn't), but I got to say, he's nowhere near 5'9''. Not even close.
He was wearing boots and still, he was considerably shorter.
I'd put him at 5'7'', 5'8'' max. Quite talented too.
Tomfc says on 4/Aug/13

I agree, he looks 5'10 range there, at least in those boots. I wouldn't bet on him being shorter than 5'9.
kal says on 29/Jul/13
i think 5'8 is just about right! does give the impression he is 5'10 though not more. if u look at alot of his movies always wearing cowboy boots which makes him taller anyway they all look shorter in real life..downey jr, vam damme, bpitt etc. all look much smaller in real life.
Nick Of time says on 25/Jul/13
I stood right next to Johnny Depp when I worked as an extra on the movie
"Nick of Time" and I'm 5'9" and clearly was taller than him by an inch.
Johnny Depp is 5'8".
Meltdown says on 24/Jul/13
I was actually on a FB page for one of the top Johnny Depp fan pages on the internet and the woman running it argued with me that Johnny was 5'11. She was very serious about it. Just another reminder to stay away from his fans who are delusional whack jobs and need professional help.

romanspqr says on 21/Jul/13
5'9 sounds about right. Sometimes gives a 5'10 impression. Yes he does wear boots but not the military/hiking type with huge soles/heels. He likes those vintage looking ones that have modest heel. Sure he could slip a lift inside. I've sorted thru tons of pics. I have not seen him in elevators.

5 foot 11 mikey rourke has 2 inches on in in once upon time mexico.Depp pitt clooney are all bad actors who r lucky for there looks. Actors like dustin hoffman is not considerd a heartthrob yet he is a top notch actor and has to work hard to get where he is
JB says on 6/Jul/13
I think he's closer to 5'8" than 5'9". But his claim was 5'11" at some point? wow, it's normal to lie about your height by an inch or so, everybody does it. But I'm 5'8" and would never even consider trying to get away with saying I'm 5'11". That's just too much of a height difference.
bobo says on 3/Jul/13
met him in NYC in an wife is 5'5" without heels...she was wearing heels and looking a bit down at Johnny. He's no where close to 5'9" claimed. Great actor though and nice fellow.
Linebacker28 says on 1/Jul/13
After seeing several of his films, I couldn't agree more with this listing. Always appeared squarely average in height to my eye, but that's really peanuts compared to everything else he has. He's the embodiment of "cool" and an amazing actor.
JB says on 30/Jun/13
He's the same height as keith richards. Keith is 5'8" or 5'8.5"
Olivia says on 26/Jun/13
I met Johnny Depp at a premiere and he was barely taller than me with boots on. I'm 5'9, so I guess that would put him around 5'8.5-5'8.75 flatfooted...I don't think he's quite 5'9, but pretty close.
Koalized says on 25/Jun/13
Bruckeimer is wearing italian shoes mocassini, with almost not heel at all, Depp is wearing cowboy boots and the instep of the shoes of both Depp and Cruise looks too much angled for the heels of their shoes.
Koalized says on 25/Jun/13
Interesting new pics of Depp with Tom Cruise, both wearing large shoes, and Bruckeimer, normal shoes. I don't think that without the shoes advantages Depp can be taller that Bruckeimer. What do you think, Rob?
[Editor Rob: he might have 1cm thicker heel than jerry, cruise's actual heel part looks a little less than depp, but as said, it is always possible to fit something in boots and not really tell.]
Silent d says on 22/Jun/13
Towered by armie hammer. I remember in platoon, he was the same height as his friend charlie sheen. There was also a photo with him and nicolas cage. He was a little shorter. Maybe 2 inches and a bit. 5 foot 9.
Mathew says on 17/Jun/13
I'd have him somewhere in the 174 - 175 cm range. 5'8.5" - 5'8.75". Doesn't quite pull off the full 5'9".

he was towered by 6 foot bale in public emenimes by 3 inches. % foot 9 nothing more
Richie Rich says on 13/Jun/13
What Chris posted. 5'7.5" for Depp. He always wears boots. Never seen him in sneakers or regular shoes.
Check his arm and torso length next to Ricky Gervais. They're the same. Only difference come from the shoes.
Meltdown says on 5/Jun/13
Matthew says on 21/Apr/13

Hey Matthew, that is VERY believable. I hope you can share the measurements. Remember people, this is likely his mid-day height so he is probably closer to 5ft 9.25in first thing in the morning.
Koalized says on 30/May/13
Chris you are welcome! Finally someone else that support his own opinion with some documents(and my and your conclusions are almost the same...maybe it is just coincidence...)

I dont think Depp is insecure about his height at all. I just believe he is mistaken about his height
Chris says on 22/May/13
Same as Cruise at 5' 7.75'' (172 cm) Barefoot and 5' 9.5'' (176 cm) in Boots. He looks 5' 7'' in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (in tennis shoes) and in the beach scene in Pirates 1 (barefoot with Keira Knightley).

5'8.75 is possible for Depp. Thats the lowest i can see him though.

Clearly in the 5ft 8 to 5ft 9 range. Normal height, nothing remarkable about Johnny in that regard. His charisma, charm and talent on the other hand are all excellent.

I don 't think most people know their height, so he may not be lying he just might really think that. I was shocked when I measured myself and found out I was several inches shorter than I thought
Matthew says on 21/Apr/13
I work with stylists all day long who tailor custom pieces for celebrities. Recently I met Johnny Depp. A leather designer from Los Angeles was doing a jacket for him. So I have all of Johnny's measurements on file (bicepts, arm, front, shoulder measurements, etc) as well as his height. I can tell you for a fact that he is 5ft 8.75in. Thought I'd share this with you as I was surprised, I thought he'd be taller.
Voiceless Dental Fricative says on 12/Mar/13

Hospital records show Mr. Depp's height as being 5'7 & 1/2. If you don't believe it, do some research for yourselves!
Koalized says on 24/Feb/13
First of all is very difficult to compare height with the precision of the centimeter, and it's even more difficult to find out the height of a person with an hat.
Moreover Timothy Hutton does not look 6ft at all near to Travolta.
Wipeout says on 20/Feb/13
My best guess is he is 5'9.25 in the morning and 5'8.5 at night, since we fluctuate about 3/4 of an inch throughout the day. 5'9 is about dead-on. Otherwise 5'8.75 mid-day.

I've met him on several occasions and stood next to him at premieres in the past; he's definitely 5'10".

During premieres stars wear lifts.
Excelsior says on 25/Jan/13
The best answer is probably between 5'7" and 5'8" because of the movie Donnie Brasco. Pacino is short, like 5'5" short, and Depp looked a couple of inches taller than him throughout that movie (some scenes they looked identical, other scenes you can tell Depp is taller). I don't think either of them wore lifts and that movie.

pitt is bad at accents he may play weird roles but he plays then the same . same voice same inflections. He gets off by his looks.he hasnt gotten any better with age either.His roles should go to ryan gosling an actor considerd a heartthorb yet can actualy act
MaskDeMasque says on 7/Nov/12

i agree that clooney doesn't have much range but pitt? i think he does serious roles and strange roles well.Check out 12 monkeys, he's brilliant in that.

well silent d i dont care for pacino or eastwood(escpecially eastwood) those actors got no range.freeman and bacon r good actors.Alotugh i think bacon is underated and sadley dosent get the credit he deserves. freeman was good in shawhsank and bacon got no noms mystic river.depp was 2 inches shorter then 5 foot 11 geofrey rush

He seems strange and sloppy when he speaks. 5 foot 9 nothing more. in blow he was twoerd by 6 foot ray loaita by 3 inches

I guess so but noone compares to the great tom hanks and leonardo dicaprio and a few others. I guess depp can only do weird. 175cm.

pitt and clooney have no range. Depp pitt , clooney all got in cuase of their looks if they look the way they did they would be all sweeping floors at burger king. I use to be shy but acting really help me come out of my shell.I love drama class iam not good at but its fun.Your right agree to disagree even though iam no fan of depp he still better than pitt and clooney. Although to be fair before pirates he wasnt that famous
Silent d says on 21/Oct/12
Not everyone can act. They can try to act but won't be as successful as him and others. Agree to disagree. Brad pitt and clooney are good actors. Brad pitt in kalifornia and clooney has range. 5 foot 9. I heard acting is a great way to meet girls and come out of your shell but it'll be pretty scary to act in front of people. Acting is a confidence builder. I am shy but I might give it a try one day.
bodwaya says on 15/Oct/12
thats the point he has no range. Even when he plays weird character he uses the same inflections. Anyone can act on film. Its tougher acting on stage.Depp cannot do that. He has no training it shows. example actor like denzel can do that has done shakpsher one of the hardest. Depp cannot do that he just a teen hearthroad like brad or clooney(although he is more talented then pitt or clooney thats not saying much)but depp is bad actor.
Silent d says on 12/Oct/12
Bodwaya he is a great actor. It is hard to act in weird movies. You have to have this certain amount of talent and creativity. He is no robert de niro but he is a different type of actor. Not everyone can do dramatic roles. He is just sticking to his strengths and he is growing as an actor. He is different. He becomes the character he plays. 5 foot 9.
bodwaya says on 7/Oct/12
u say lack pretty boy looks? he is considered a sex symbol by countless of girls. I am a straight guy i am not going to judge his looks. but he u say hes is a good actor. No he has has can only play weird characters. When he plays a dramatic role he comes off as flat (finding never land example. He has no actign training and it shows. plus he is not a good guy he use to a conrinic drug abuser and hes been jail before.
menina says on 6/Oct/12
Although I think he looks to be 5'9"-- what difference does his height make? tall or short he's a great actor as attested by the wide range of characters he has played. Wwhat he lacks in typical hollywood leading man looks, he compensates ith his strong masculine looks; reminiscent of the golden age of hollywood standard for strong male characters. whichis preferable to today's mamby pamby pretty boy actors.Having said that, he is very easy on the eyes.
I've also read that he is a good, loyal friend who never forgets a favor.

There was a photo with him and nicolas cage taken in the late eigthies. He was about 6cm shorter than cage. I heard he was friends with charlie too. Have to find a photo of that. Charlie is 5 foot 9. I remember he was in a movie with charlize theron and they were about the same height. I'm laughing that people think he is 170cm. That would make alpacino 160, orlando bloom 170, keira knightley 166 and amber heard 165cm. 5 foot 9 is right on.

Depp has never claimed 5'7. He doesn't look 5'7 at all. 5'9 is correct.
Simon says on 29/Aug/12
Johnny Depp is 5'7, like he said. Guys, go to Madame Tussauds in London. I am 175cm and he is similar/a cm shorter. He said it himself that he was 5'7 and nobody at below 5,8 would claim a lower height, usually the other way around.

2nd truth, don't get me wrong or anything, but...
Do not start on Johnny Depp, PLEASE! :D
I don't think he should get an upgrade from now on. Even if he might be 176 cms from now on his body is going to shrink bit by bit.
Tarik says on 24/Jul/12
He never looked particularly tall compared to other actors he worked with but I still think he needs an slight upgrade. I've watched enough movies in which he featured to be able to say that Depp is closer to 5'10 than 5'9. Perhaps 177 cm and a half would be his exact height but then again it's tough to say for sure.
2nd truth says on 24/Jul/12
if brad is 5 11 on the web
considered 5 10 in person
and downgraded among peers to 5 9

then this guy is 5 foot 7 to 5 8 max sorry
altough he is a genuine actor i can disagree
that this guy is really cool 6 foot 2 or not he could
have been 5 foot 4 for all we care right?
Aditya singh says on 11/Jun/12
I am 5'9" and I took a picture with Jhonny Depp. He is a super cool guy.He was taking pictures with everyone. I have not seen a cooler celen than him. He was my height.. You guys are right he is 5' 9"
MaskDeMasque says on 9/Jun/12

Depp looks a maximum of 2 inches taller there but who knows what kind of shoes they've got going on. assuming they have the same size shoes that would put gervais at 5'7 and depp at 5'9.

Mr S says on 6/Jun/12
@Rob. Do you think that a peak 5'10" is out of the question? Depp may be in the 5'9" range now because he is nearly 50 but in his earlier films he did look 5'10" imo. In "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" he looked a clear 4" taller than 5'6" Juliette Lewis and no more than 3" shorter than 6'1" John C Rielly.
[Editor Rob: depp can look 5ft 9-9.5. I don't think he's really lost much height, I mean mm's maybe]
VMK says on 10/Feb/12
Hey Rob. A while back there was that picture of assumed 5'8" Glenn. With that assumption Johnny looked 5'9". Knowing now that Glenn is in fact 5'7" at most, where does that leave Johnny?
[Editor Rob: I still don't think Johnny is under 5ft 9.

I wouldn't use G's photo as it was shot very close with G nearer. Who knows how much that added to G's height ;)]
