How tall is Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp's 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"

He's got to be 5'7, in cry baby he looks the same height as Willem Dafoe where he is bare foot and he only looks 5'9 when he wears those boots with 2 inches heel

5' 9" looks accurate for Depp.

He looks like 5'7" next to willem dafoe

It was just a height that was reported on a sheet. Doesn't mean a measurement
Wipeout said on 12/Jul/16
@ Shredder

Reference please??? I know he is actually 5'9 because I was in the same movie as him and saw the casting posts.
James c said on 9/Jul/16
I would cut him some slack, he did also he didn't know. 5'11" is an popular height too claim, when nobody knows their height. Though I'm 5'9" myself, and out of all the celebs he looks easily my height. Though i think tom hardy might edge me out, Rob said he thought Tom Hardy looked closer too 5'10" when he met him, but again I seen Hardy near inaminate objects look my height. Though the weird thing is some of the guys that are listed 5'9.25 an height I used to think I was look like they could be 5'9.75 though again it's not that far away there's guys that are 5'8" Ho look portion ally similar too someone that's 6'2"

Police report gives 5'10 175 lbs.

Editor Rob: I try to stick to heights on here...I don't know if Depp has put on a few pounds to take him nearer 200, I would be surprised.

Yes I can accept that for sure and its also a sensitive subject as in the US apparently a man is guilty until proven innocent!

It just was very surprising to me how people will exaggerate things like Height/Weight and other factors when it suits their purpose. I would be very surprised if Johnny is anything more than 75kilo even with weight gain.

@Mat - He probably got creeped out by big G :)
Mat said on 9/Jun/16
Editor Rob: another time depp claimed not to know his height.

when?
Editor Rob: to our old friend Big G!
Johan said on 9/Jun/16
What do you think Rob about all the accusations flying at Depp?

I read an article today where a friend of his soon to be ex -wife describes him as being almost 90 kilogram compared to her 60 kilogram. Completely destroys the credibility of her friend's testimony as she is already grossly exaggerating the facts. At 5ft 9 he weighs probably also 60 kilo range or at most 70.

I weigh around 90 kilo and am 10 cm taller and look far bigger than Depp does.

@Greg and the thing is actual 5'11" guys can pull off looking 6ft or they would claim they're 6ft. Another thing I notice is that legit 5'10" guys claim 6ft. I used to think your one height only and you don't shrink during the day. Before I found out more information about height and I first got interested in it my mom measured me at an sub 5'10" which is 5'9 3/4ths using the stand against the wall method, and I was also measured at 5'9 1/2 at an doctors office. So I'll admit I didn't always claim 5'9" like I do now I used to claim I was 5'10" and acted like I was that height and my step dad also claims 5'10 him and I are roughly the same height I might be taller then him though he's like my size. I knew people in high school who claimed 5'10" too 5'11" and they where an half inch shorter or the same size. So I thought I was safe too claim 5'10" then my senior high of high school and meeting people that are 5'10" I got really insecure and depressed because I was starting too see I was shorter then 5'10" and even shorter then 5'9 1/2. Though then I realized after doing morning and night measurements I found out that I was just about 5'10" when I first wake up and depending on the day on an normal day I'm just over 5'9 and on an work night I work nights including doing stuff during the day I'm like 5'8 7/8ths so I claim 5'9" or I ll just say I'm anywhere between 5'9 5'10 bc techinically I'm between those heights during the day.
Greg said on 6/Jun/16
@James C I know what you mean. See For the longest time ever I didn't even know my real height. I got measured at 5'9" my junior year of HS so at around 17. Then I just thought I was like 5'9.5 and would round off to 5'10". But for my drivers license they measured me in shoes, and I was 5'10", I knew this wasn't my real bare foot height or so I thought.. and sometimes I found just claim 5'11 because you know why not, my limbs where more or less the length of a 5'11 guys so I got away with it. But here's where things got a little bit funny and ironic. So I measured my height again and in the mornings I was just over 5'11" so I would only go down to about 5'10.5 towards the night time.So now I just claim 5'11 as I am over that im shoes prob closer to 6'0 with them on but yeah.
James C said on 4/Jun/16
5'11" is an go to height when 5'9" or even 5'8" guys don't know their height. Funny thing is 5'10" claimed guys that I know look comfortably taller then a lot 5'11" claimed guys and I mean claim. Like I work in customer service their was one guy who claimed 5'11" and when I go out to the lobby he seemed perfectly eye to eye with me though I wear boots sometimes so he could be an half inch taller then me. Then one day I felt short, an older gentlemen was like I'm 5'11" then he stood next to me and he was like your 6'0" and we looked in the mirrior my eyes where over his eyebrows. I have an friend who claims he is 6'0" funny thing is when we where 16 he claimed 5'11" then without getting measured he was like I grew now I think I'm 6'0" now. He is my height and is built like me were both 5'9" I don't think he knows his height. Though who knows at an urgent care center I've been measured at 5'10" 1/2 and I know that's not my height bc I ve been measured at 5'8" 1/2 at the military entrance processing and on an school day when I was younger where I didn't do much I get measured at the doctors at 5'9" 1/2 and on an day I do a lot I get measured at 5'9" when I was in the navy for only four weeks I have hypertension. I was on an airplane for seven hours, when we landed I did laid in an recliner for an few hours at an ymca place, I woke up and two hours later we sat criss cross apple sauce for an hour or more then we get on an bus that's like maybe 15 too 30 minutes then we walked for in awhile this is evening at 7 o clock I get clocked in at 5'9" they where like 69. And I check my height a lot and help from others I'm measured between 5'9" and 5'10" all the time the lowest being 5'8" 7/8ths and the highest being about 5'10" and I had an stadiometer like robs and I was measured either at 5'9 1/4 or just bout 5'9" depending on the day.

@RZ
What you mean by "measure in a job interview"?

Are you saying the interviewers measured you?
RZ said on 1/Jun/16
@175 cm, Ah ok! People should really not go by driver's licenses by the way. A cop once asked if I was 178-180cm (he was behind a desk but still) and I could've easily just gone with yes or similar to that and he'd fill that in. Pretty weird.

Especially considering I'm exactly 170cm. (Measured in 2010 in a job interview haha)
175 cm said on 31/May/16

They won't have measured him. I guess it's from his driver license.
Orlando said on 31/May/16
"I'm not the biggest guy in the world by any means -- I'm only five-foot-eleven" -- Only 5' 11"?! That's 1.80 m and by any standards that's average tall. LOL These Hollywood stars can be quite comical and blantly insincere about their heights. No way he's 5' 11". More like 5' 8"... His legs look short. People just have to check him next to Al Pacino to get real!
Editor Rob: another time depp claimed not to know his height.
Sam said on 30/May/16
I saw him live yesterday with his band. Didn't really strike me as a tall guy. Rather short, but not very short. Maybe around 5'9 at most.
RZ said on 29/May/16
Who fills in these kind of things and how? Since they list him as 5'10* Restraining order: Click Here
175 cm said on 28/May/16
Editor Rob, is it likely Johnny got measured 5ft 10.5 in shoes and goes with that mark / rounds up. I can't believe a guy like him would lie with trivial things. Obviously he wears lifts, do such guys more often exeggerate - heightwise?
Editor Rob: from interviews he seems to be a little bit distant or 'away with the fairies' at times, so maybe he forgets such trivial things like height ;)

He'll certainly not forget to wear big footwear if the event or movie needs it.
realheight said on 26/May/16
5'9" peak.
5'8"-5'8.5" now.
Mat said on 23/May/16
Rob, do you think Depp could be slightly over or slightly below 5'9?
Editor Rob: at times he looks 5ft 9 plus or minus a fraction, I think around 5ft 9 is still an ok shout for him.
Mat said on 23/May/16
totally agree with truth

when a 5'9 guy lies he says '' I'm only 5'11'' (another recent example would be Wesley Snipes, exact same quote)
when a 5'10 guy lies he says ''I'm not short, I'm 5'11''
when a 5'11 guy lies he says ''I'm tall, I'm 6 feet''
truth said on 15/May/16
If a person says "only" and "5ft11" it is most likely that said person is embellishing their height by at least 2 inches.
John said on 5/May/16
Rob. I was measured with Seca Stadiometer and got 1cm taller than the wall measurement with aerosol can like you did. Which one is more precise?
Editor Rob: your wall/floor might be off by several mm if you got that much difference. If the place you put the stadiometer on looked flat and you faced it (so the rod didn't bend) then go with stadiometer (but take 1/8th inch off that).
James B said on 3/May/16
Rob Apparently depp has an estate near where I live. Rumour has it he went to my local towns carnival in disguise with a moustache LOL.
Editor Rob: to be fair, being a top a-lister brings a level of security and trickery that we don't need to bother with.

A guy like Cruise for instance on some sets would have 2 other doubles...so you have these 3 cars come to set, then after shooting the 3 cars with cruise in one and 2 doubles in other going away. Crazy, but then, maybe for some they feel it necessary.

Carl said on 4/Apr/16
So Rob, I'm a little over 5' 9.25" out of bed in the morning, and usually hit 5'9" flat before bed at night, though I can often sink a little under the 5'9" mark if my back had a hard day. Would it be more honest to claim 5'9" flat or a weak 5'9"?
Editor Rob: these questions are best suited to the rob paul page ;)
I'd just go with 5ft 9 if you only drop a little under. If you dropped to 5ft 8.5 or 8.25 and claimed 5ft 9 then a proportion of people who were quite honest themselves might realise you weren't 5ft 9.

As for Depp, at times you could argue he fell into a weak or strong 5ft 9.
MaskDeMasque said on 3/Apr/16
I think he's in the 5'8.75-5'9 zone. He looks 5'9 range in most of his films.
JakesPlace97 said on 3/Apr/16
I think he is 5'8" because in the movie Don Juan, there is a scene where both him and Dona Julia (Talisa Soto) are standing next to each other and look the same height. Also I don't understand how Talisa Soto is said to be 5'10" on google, but is listed as 5'8" on IMDB. Either way they are the same height in that shot, but 5'10" I find hard to be real. This shot is taken directly along side them with no camera tricks and they both are wearing flat shoes.
What always confuses me is how supposedly Johnny Depp is the same height as Geraldine Pailhas, which is 5'10", and yet in the film Don Juan, Johnny looks a good couple of
inches taller than her in every shot.

In his 20s? 150-155 lbs tops. He's a 5'9 ectomorph. What do you expect?

He looks really short in Pirates of the Caribbean, short arms and legs. 5'8'' max.

@Rimbaud
There is also a picture with McGowan and Depp where we can see them with shoes.
Click Here
Rimbaud said on 16/Feb/16
if you google Johnny Depp and shame McGowan there are pictures of them together where I would say McGowan looks nearly a good inch taller, he is listed here at 5ft 9.5", of course you cant see the shoes all to well, have you seen the pics Rob and what difference would say there are between the two?
Patrick 5foot9 said on 14/Feb/16
Rob, are those photos like this one from "ara" important for you? Can you work with it? He looks like the same height as the wax figure of depp.
You think Depp was meassured for the wax figure?
Editor Rob: with Wax figures we need to be aware that sometimes an actor who appears and gets dimensions taken, might have a pose he stands in and that is the height of the figure. In some cases I would say the pose was less than a 'military tall' type pose. Depp at 174cm can be arguable at times, but he also can look 5ft 9 range a lot.
NBAer said on 14/Feb/16
Looks around 173 with 170 Tom Cruise(imo Cruize is max 171).He never looked close to 180 or 178 in any of the Pirates of the Caribbean films with normal cam angles,so 175 is really the max he could pass for...Nevertheless,a great actor and personality imo!!...
Ara said on 12/Feb/16
Me (5'9; around 1.76 in the morning, 1.74 in the evening; mid-twenties) with Madame Tussaud's Johnny Depp in Las Vegas: Click Here

(note that I am a little closer to the camera, wearing sneakers with pretty thick soles; "Johnny" has standard cowboy boots and a very bad posture; still, I'd guess, with equal posture, shoes off, etc. we'd be pretty much the same height - considering Tussaud's measurements accurate; as far as I know, they were used for Orlando Bloom's estimate on this site, though?)
Ron said on 8/Feb/16
Rob, how much do you think he weighed in his prime(twenties) 165 or 170 lb?
sebs said on 4/Feb/16

Paul said on 30/Jan/16
Do you guys realize how thick and chunky Johnny's shoes are in the second pic? That's about a 2 inch thickness right there. And even then, he's the same height as 5'7" Amber Heard who is wearing 3 inch heels. (Don't let the hat and the camera angle trick you.) So I would put him at 172-173cm.
John said on 29/Jan/16
Tom Cruise is wearing obvious elevator boots in the photo above. No boot can be that thick without a hidden lift or padding inside. Cruise looks 5'9" (same as Depp) with those boots, but only 5'7.5" without them.
James C. said on 29/Jan/16
Yeah he ain't 5'7 1/4 lol, with Benedict, that's basically me and my dad and grandpa who are both 5'11 1/2 and 6'0. If he was 5'7 1/4 then Benedict would be only 5'10, and he ain't 5'10 from what it seems lol.
meezemaker said on 28/Jan/16
I would say Depp is 5'8 or 174-173. But since he knows cruise gonna wear invisible lifts, they might look the same height than cruise on photograph shots. That 's why he is wearing his boots, to keep the gain on cruise;

One on half inches more for depp. if we guess cruise at 171, 174 for Deep seems fair.
Chris said on 25/Jan/16
My posts speak so much truth they keep getting deleted. Johnny is 171 cm barefoot and Amber Heard is 168 barefoot.

In this photo Johnny has 0.75 inch footwear and Amber has 2.5 inch footwear. In the photo Amber is at least 5 8.5 inches tall and Johnny is 5 7.75 - 5 8.

Click Here
Editor Rob: there's quite a few photos of Johnny with Benedict. 171cm seems very hard to argue unless he was a lift wearer.

5'9" looks about right
Looker said on 30/Dec/15
My friend met him and said he was a lot shorter than I am. I am a strong 5'9" at night. She said he was probably 5'7 tops.
176.2 said on 25/Dec/15
In shoes I trust his 5'11 claim. Barefoot 5'9.5? Possibly he has lost half of an inch due to age..
@Anthem
Maybe you're just bad in the estimate :)
Anthem said on 23/Dec/15
I had been to Madame Tussauds, and his wax figure looked around 5'6, though i didn't directly stand next to this one, it looked quite small.

And according to Madame Tussauds, they prepare meetings with celebrities and accurately measure them to make a realistic duplicate of the actual celebrity. I will give him the benefit of the doubt, since i haven't stood right close to the figure.
S.J.H said on 18/Dec/15
Dipping below 5'9 nowadays. Hover at 174.5cm
Dood said on 12/Dec/15
He's a solid 5'9. 5'9,5 out of bed
sebs said on 7/Dec/15
yah i can see that, depends on the heel, but he's not as short as people make him see. Could comfortably claim 5'10.

amaterasu said on 4/Dec/15
In normal dress shoes he would be right on 5'10" mark, not 5'10" 3/4 that's too much. And about 5'11" in cowboy boots.
Sebs said on 29/Nov/15
Barefoot 5'9 would mean that with typical dress shoe heels, he's pushing 5'10.5-3/4 which is a weak 5'11 and in sneakers he'd be close to 5'10

those 1in boots cruise has with 1in lifts that give a total of 1.6-7in very similar to the 1.5-1.7in type depp has makes cruise barely shorter like max 2-3cm

Robb come on man.. Look at theese lifts!!!

Editor Rob: it's a cowboy heel.
amaterasu said on 26/Nov/15
I can believe he would measure as 175cm, but I can't believe that Bloom has 4cm on him. Because 4cm is almost 2 inches, and that difference can't be almost unnoticeable. With that being said, I think that there is only a slight difference between them, Bloom can be about 1 inch taller, but no more that that.

There is no recent pic of Glen and Johnny Depp.
Cantchooseaname said on 15/Nov/15
I have a hard time believing this man's over 5ft 6,

Glenn had taken a photo with him and they looked the same height (and Glenn's a proven 5ft 6.5), BUT...Glenn had his head and neck way slumped over, while Depp stood up straight, plus Depp was closer to the camera. Unless Glenn was actually 5ft 9.5.....just look on Glenn's Instagram page and the latest Glenn/Depp photo shows this.

@Sam Well usually one's height with perfect posture should be assumed to be their 'official' height.
Dinger said on 18/Oct/15
In the 1st picture you can obviously see that they are all wearing big dark shoes which definitely look like lift's. I'd say 5'7" - 5' 8" tops!
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.]

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

Depp has the bigger footwear than Cruise , both look over 5 '9 .

He actually looks near 5ft10 beside Cruise who as usual has a noticeable shoe advantage. Doesn't mean he is though

Rob, could we have an entry for Richard Grieco? He cliams 5'11'' but I think he is same as Johnny Deep

Thanks!
[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

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.

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.]

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")
existential.man 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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

They make someone look any size they want in the movies.

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.

onlytrue,do you have any source of that hospital record?

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

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!

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.

He does actually look 5 ft 8 range in Transcendence though, definitely noticeably shorter than Rebecca Hall.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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+

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.

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?

"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.

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.

Madam tussauds has him at about 5'7 max. Someone go check him out at the london location.

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...?

Pics:
Click Here - with K. Richards
Click Here - with De Niro
Click Here - with A. Heard

@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 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 said on 28/Feb/14

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.]
the shredder said on 18/Feb/14
Him and Tom make Martin look like a kid and Martin Claims 5'7 , 5'8
Arch Stanton said on 17/Feb/14
Oh c'mon. He's not under 5'9". Click Here with 6''4.5" Armie Hammer.
Taras said on 14/Feb/14
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. Thank you in advance

Johnny Depp you are the center of my life you are the best .I love you i always think about you.

5'9" is already generous,5'8.5".

JD is 5ft 8.75in (174.5 cm)barefoot. I thought this was verified already!
the shredder said on 6/Feb/14
He can be 5'9.5.
176,2Tunman said 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 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

Cnut the great said on 21/Jan/14
he looks taller than 5'7" in Gilbert Grape .. he looks 5'9" in that movie, unless he is wearing lifts. Guys who are 5'7" look short, and he really doesnt..
Samuel said on 19/Jan/14
I think he's closer to 5'8. 172-174 cm.
Brad said on 18/Jan/14
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 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.

Click Here

I think he is 5'8" tops.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Dec/13
He actually looks about this in Nightmare on Elm Street, 20-21 at the time.

He's 5'9.
