How tall is Johnny Depp ?

Johnny Depp's Height is 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"

Comment on the Height of Johnny Depp

Aaron said on 2/Oct/15
I put insoles (like Dr. Sholes, etc.) in my sneakers and then found that the simple combination of shoes plus insoles added 1.5 inches to my height. I bet it's easy to add even more without it being too noticeable.
Sam said on 29/Sep/15
Depp certainly falls within that stereotype that celebs add 2 inches to their height...IMO he can only hit the 5'9" mark with ramrod posture,
Felipe said on 26/Sep/15
Saw him yesterday at Rock in Riofestival playing with his band. Look him closely, he is about 1,73. I have 1,75 and he is shorter than me. That's a fact.
Sam said on 21/Sep/15
I think Tom Cruise might be sporting some small lifts in that top photo...more subtle than some of the beasts Robert Downey Jr. has been seen in.
[Editor Rob: when you think about it, there are many elevator shoe companies and hundreds of retailers selling shoe lifts. A certain percentage of the population, including actors, will be wearing them.

personally I've only really seen a few up close who I would say with certainty wore elevator shoes. Putting a half inch lift in a boot or shoe can be really impossible to notice for most people...]
Wipeout said on 18/Sep/15
Depp's peak height was 5'9.25 but at 52 is now closer to 5'8.75. Weight throughout most of the 90s (Eward Schissorhands, Benny & Joon, Donnie Brasco, etc) was in the 150 lbs zone and in the 2000s was typically still only 160 lbs (Pirates, Willy Wonka, Sweeney Todd, etc). He does looks heavy again lately but not quite what he was filming "The Tourist." He might weigh 180 or so. He knows how to lose weight quickly so I wouldn't worry. His cruising weight is around 160-165 lbs because he doesn't lift much weight so he can't afford to be much heavier than that or else he'll just gain fat pounds, which is not good. But ti would be great if Depp hit the gym and took it seriously. See if he can come close to Pitt in Troy.
the shredder said on 8/Sep/15
Rob , he really gained weight recently , what would you guess him 185 ?
[Editor Rob: not sure if he's quite that much, although I can see he looks a bit bulkier than normal, maybe 175-80 range.]
Alex said on 10/Aug/15
5'9 on a good day
RealityCheck said on 18/Jul/15
He's about 5'8.

Look at him next 6'4, 6'5 Armie Hammer.

There's a good 8 to 9 inches between them.

Theron could be 5ft10 though...
Arch Stanton said on 17/Jun/15
That's not right Danimal, see him with Charlize Theron in his socks in The Astronaut's Wife. Not under 5 ft 9.
Danimal said on 16/Jun/15
Got listed at 5'9" in the 1980's, but is probably closer to 5'8" and looks it next to 5'6 3/4" Tom Cruise.
Shawn said on 5/Jun/15
What's funny is when you look at Jerry Bruckheimer's shoes, both Cruise and Depp's footwear seem quite "bulked up" compared to Jerry's relatively modest footwear.
hijopotamus said on 5/Jun/15
@the shredder, not really. The thing is that Tom is a great elevators wearer, probably one of the top 3 ever and Depp is not great and looks weird and funny.
Key said on 5/Jun/15
In this picture with 5'7 (170cm) tall Tom Cruise. Depp looks 173cm.
the shredder said on 3/Jun/15
Depp has the bigger footwear than Cruise , both look over 5 '9 .
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/15
He actually looks near 5ft10 beside Cruise who as usual has a noticeable shoe advantage. Doesn't mean he is though
averageheight said on 26/May/15
Rob, could we have an entry for Richard Grieco? He cliams 5'11'' but I think he is same as Johnny Deep

[Editor Rob: did Grieco not edge Johnny out on 21 Jump Street, not seen an episode since back in the day though! 5ft 11 seems a stretch though, 5ft 9.5-10 might be ok.]
Silent_D said on 25/May/15
He might wear lifts but he is always taller than his wife amber heard who is at least 5 foot 6. I can't believe people think he is five foot 6 or 7. His posture is not that good but I think he is 5 foot 9. I think he was joking about 5 foot 11 claim. He was never 5 foot 11.
an anonymous peach said on 25/May/15
He only looks 2cm taller than Tom Cruise who could be a flat 5'7 for all we know. 174cm max for Johnny seems right imo
Key said on 18/May/15
Hmmm... I'm thinking 5'8 to 5'8.5
Ian C said on 16/May/15
Yet another shortish leading man who "candidly" admits that he is five foot eleven, just to show you what a modest, forthright guy he is. This is always suspicious, especially when the interviewer hasn't actually asked how tall the man is. It always seems like a nervous proactive dismissal of a painful subject, and is even more pathetic since it is so easy to see its falsity. The man is right there, after all.
M said on 8/May/15
He is the same height as Tom Cruise egzactelly 1.72m.
Vince said on 1/May/15
5' 9" for certain.
Simon said on 30/Apr/15
He doesn't look as tall as Simon Pegg next to Cruise.
Yugo said on 27/Apr/15
hey rob are the heights you put in celeb heights for celebrities their absolute low heights? like they can never be measured below that or are they mid day heights?
[Editor Rob: some might be put at the nearest full inch because generally they look near enough that...but of course if measured you'd probably find a proportion dipped under that.

Not everybody sits on even numbers at their low, for every guy at 5ft 11 you have another at 5ft 11 1/8th, 7/8ths, 5/8ths, 3/8ths etc.]
the shredder said on 24/Apr/15
5'7 is and 5'11 are crap , at 5'7 he would not have the same built and he would look odd wearing lifts to reach to 5'10 look he gives off , at 5'11 he would look 6 ft at times in his boots , he does not , 5'9 is about right , He has looked it barefoot in films before.
Charon540 said on 23/Apr/15
Even though 5'7" and 5'11" seems a bit exaggerated!!
5'9" seems about right for Johnny (maybe a weak 5'9") said on 31/Mar/15
why did the interviewer call him 5'7?
Heylo said on 27/Mar/15
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 said 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 said 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 said 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.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Feb/15

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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 9/Feb/15
174 is out of question for Depp. 175 or 176
Sam said on 7/Feb/15
I find it hard to believe this guy is above 5'9.
174-175 cm?

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.

Depp (in suspicious boots) looks shorter than McGregor (in standard shoes) in the pictures from the premiere of "Mordecai".
Jimmy Potential said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 2/Jan/15
5' 9" looks right. He can look 5' 10" at times but that's with bigger heels.
snath said 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 said 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.

Sam said on 14/Nov/14
Does anyone here believe he could be 5'7.5-5'7.75?
Prince said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 29/Sep/14
5'7-8 ish? I guess...
rockitbaby said 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.

More like 5'8" Rob just an inch over Cruise, who is closer to 5'7"
Sam said 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 said on 20/Sep/14
5-11 Lol
rockitbaby said 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.

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. said on 16/Sep/14
onlytrue,do you have any source of that hospital record?
onlytrue said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 16/Aug/14
Is 5'9.25 (peak height) possible?

5'8.75 today maybe ...
Koalized said 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''

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 said on 25/Jul/14
5'8.5 barefoot
spiky said on 23/Jul/14
he's definetely taller than tom cruise so he's closer to 5'9"
TJE said 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 said on 13/Jul/14
He does actually look 5 ft 8 range in Transcendence though, definitely noticeably shorter than Rebecca Hall.
Arch Stanton said 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 said 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 said on 8/Jul/14
@Sam- Not a chance he's lost that much at only 51.
Sam said on 7/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 said 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.

RisingForce said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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.

the shredder said on 24/May/14
Yea , under 5 '9 is downgrading , but 5'10 and 5 '11 are fanboys
Arch Stanton said 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 said 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 said on 23/May/14
He ain't under 5'9.
Felix said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 23/May/14
You could argue 5'8.5" but I really can't see him under that.
Arch Stanton said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 20/May/14
Maybe 172-173 cm nowadays (5'8), and more like 5'8.75 (strong 174 cm) at 21+

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 said on 11/May/14
5'11'' is average-like.
Joaquin said 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 said on 7/May/14
maybe a downgrade to 5'8 would be closer to the truth
Realist said on 6/May/14
172 maybe possible.
shorty said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 20/Apr/14
Not more than 5'7'' at any cost
Spike said 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 said 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

Allwn said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 21/Mar/14
He is not under 5'8.5
Felix said 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.

Damon, I agree with you. I think that Cruise is 170-171cm, And Depp is 173cm (+/- cm.
Damon said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 15/Mar/14
That's not De Niro it's Hunter S Thompson who was over 6ft
Felix said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 28/Feb/14
170, max!
Arch Stanton said on 28/Feb/14
Depends on the photo:

Click Here Looks about the same height here

I think though you'd find that Depp is the taller guy.
Arch Stanton said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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.]

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 said 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

jimmyjet said 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 said 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.

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.

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

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 said 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 said 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"

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.

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

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.

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 said 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

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 said 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 said 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 said 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.

How's he still listed at 5'9"?

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 said 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 said 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 said 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?

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)

I think it's the right time for this post.
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). But the most interesting thing to notice is the height difference between Barack Obama and Tim Burton (Barack Obama is roughly 185cm, so Burton i think looks about 178-179 cm)

I compared Depp with tall guy while you compared him with short guys. Hehehe. Funny.

I thought we already established beyond a reasonable doubt that Johnny Depp is in fact precisely 5'8.75". Read the previous comments. The case is pretty clear.
Koalized said on 30/Oct/13
In these pics you can see Depp with his friend (and tattooist) Jonathan Shaw. It's hard to explain the height difference fluctuation through the years without elevator shoes (or at least lifts).
Here there is a gallery of pictures of the two men in the 90s:

Johnny Depp is 5'11"(182cm). You can see it by comparing him with Armie Hammer, who is 6'5"(196cm). - huh??? are you serious? can't you see the pictures post by koalized of him next to tom cruise and jerry bruckheimer?

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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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!
BigBen said on 9/Oct/13
Just 172-173
Adamz said on 5/Oct/13
saw him in LA; could be 173 to 176 not sure.
Mathew said on 1/Oct/13
Weak 5'9" guy. I'd go with 174 - 175 cm, leaning towards 175.
Troy said on 27/Sep/13
Rob what can you say on height difference of Johnny and Tom including their footwears based of what Koalized just posted? Is this the right time to downgrade Johnny Depp?
Samuel said on 23/Sep/13
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.

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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 4/Aug/13
He honestly looks about 5'10" here standing next to 6'1" director Gore Verbinsky and 6'4" Army Hammer (I can't see Hammer as 6'5" but who knows?):
Click Here
(scroll down the page) greg right he seems at least 178 maybe 179-181 range rob does he wears lifts or he is around 179 range?

I agree, he looks 5'10 range there, at least in those boots. I wouldn't bet on him being shorter than 5'9.
