Weak 5'5" at best. Strong 5'4" at his worst.
Sarah said on 12/Nov/16
5'5" even (maybe 5'4.75"?)
Josh said on 6/Nov/16

There's actually a photo of Hutcherson and Radcliffe walking together on the net. They look roughly the same height. At least Radcliffe is only rounding up. Hutcherson is a joke with his 5'7" claim.
CD said on 23/Oct/16
@ADEL Well in reality he would be nearly an inch taller than Radcliffe, who is 5ft 4.5 maximum whereas Josh probably holds a fraction over the 5ft 5 mark IMO. Plus he has the frame of a taller guy - he is long in the torso and his short legs are what make him so short so in the right clothes he will look in good proportion!
ADEL said on 22/Oct/16
Rob ,I am 5'5 and he looks taller than me .
Why he doesn't look like Daniel Radcliffe , they are almlost the same height , and the short stature looks obvious on Daniel but doesn't appear on Josh?
omar said on 22/Oct/16
164 for sure
berta said on 22/Oct/16
no way is he 170 cm as he claims :P but can be taller than 165. u would say 165-167
Aza said on 22/Oct/16
He looks about 5'6 in comparison to Hemsworth. Not sure about footwear though so am gonna go with 5'5.5!
Peter175 said on 21/Oct/16
I don't think so, Liam is a strong 6ft3 like Rob has him listed at. weak 5ft9 is the mean of all USA studies and only young white men are as tall as 5ft10. Going by percentiles a strong 6ft3 is 2 deviations above average(top 1%) while 5ft5 is only around 7% percentile. Meaning only 1-2% of men are as tall or taller than Liam, but around 7% are Josh's height or taller. From personal experience I know more guys 5ft5-6 than I do 6ft3-4.
Civman said on 17/Oct/16
Actually, Liam is not 6-7 inches above average. He is 5-6 inches above average. Youth average height in USA is 5'10 and he us 6'3. 5 inches over it. Josh is 5 inches under it as well. So you could say that both their heights are equally abnormal. However, a 5'10 guys proportions resemble more Liams proportions rather than Josh's who indeed looks like a dwarf in this photo. So yeah, Josh seems weirder
Rent said on 14/Oct/16
If Jennifer Lawrence would be barefoot on this photo, she would be still taller than him by an solid inch... with his event shoes on feets(who give you an solid inch)!!
Rent said on 14/Oct/16
On this photo, it's really clear that he can't be a 5'7'' guy.
5'5'' at best.
Adel said on 10/Oct/16
Rob , ET Show sayed he is 5'7 .
why are you still doubt in this ?
Editor Rob: from all I've seen I'd be surprised if he was that tall.
Chris said on 3/Oct/16
Lol it's always funny to read blurbs from these interviews where actors 'confess' to being 2+ inches taller than they actually are.
S.J.H said on 8/Aug/16
I think more i see him he look 5'4.5 or maybe 5'4.75 at best
172.4cm guy said on 27/Jul/16
@Peter175. Good point about how "abnromal" Liam's height would be relative to Josh's from what is considered "average" height. The average height of a Hollywood movie actor is probably one inch above the actual world's average height, so in relation to the Hollywood average Josh is farther from that average, while in relation to the world's average height, Josh is farther from that average.
Peter175 said on 10/Jul/16
You do realize he's only 5'5" right? Sure it's a short height but it's nothing abnormal. He's taller than average height in a lot of countries. He's 4-5 inches shorter than average for American, but you're more likely to see a man his range than Liam's range. Liam's a good 6-7 inches above average. His height is more abnormal than Josh's
Warren said on 17/Jun/16
5'5 is saying too much, I'll give 5'6 for Josh.
Johan said on 31/May/16
I wouldn't say he is insecure. He is open about it and admits that it bothers him. Insecure people do not do those things. They convince themselves that their lies are truth.

5'5" sounds very small but it if far more common around the world than you would think.

The average woman ranges from 5'4"-5'5" and in some areas even smaller. Now pay attention when you go out and you will see that there are men around that size.

The problem is no man wants to seem smaller than 5'7" it would seem so lots of very short guys claim that.
Phil said on 30/May/16
Mat ,are you a giant? you know what, a dwarf is 4 foot 10 and below. 5 foot 5 is short, but it's still a normal height.
Mat said on 28/May/16
Rob, his claim shows he is insecure about his height don't you agree? he even says so, and he adds 2 inches to his stature. he is like a dwarf
Editor Rob: he's just a 5ft 5 range guy...there's several hundred million of them on this planet, but he might be one of the more famous ones.

How insecure is he? I don't know...

half the world would be insecure about height if we only went by whether they lie about it or not. The lie might not necessarily show a large insecurity specifically about height.
CD said on 11/Apr/16
Rob what happened to the comments from Sep '12 to Dec '14, did they get lost on Josh's page?
Editor Rob: they are lost it looks like.
Paul said on 9/Apr/16
He looks so short. Him listing himself at 5'7" is ridiculous. He looks short next to Jennifer Lawrence whereas a legit 5'7" looks quite average on camera. I'm 5'7" and I can never imagine myself listing me as a 5'8" guy. He is 5'5" no more. This listing is just right. I can bet on this listing. The only listing that I doubt on celebheights is rdj and tom cruise otherwise this site always seems accurate to me.
S.J.H said on 10/Feb/16
He had say about 5'7 which likely means he was 5'6.5 in dress shoes and barefoot at 5'5.25 something like that. I can't figure him this short at 5'5 and sometimes he could look a 167cm guy. So maybe he falls a little few mm under 166cm by lowest?
172.4cm guy said on 15/Jan/16
@DR. If you look at the first picture you posted, from the original HG movie, Hutcherson is wearing some serious bootwear, probably giving him a few inches of a boost over Lawrence, who is also wearing some boosted footwear (just not as much). His body proportions do seem smaller than Lawrence in certain places too. With that said, he looks slightly taller than 5'5"...maybe 166-167cm.
John said on 5/Jan/16
Why does Liam only look like he's about 6'1" in this pic?
DR said on 21/Dec/15
I agree he may have odd proportions, he and Jennifer Lawrence are the same height when she is not in gargantuan heels. She may edge him out by a fraction of an inch at times, but not much more. She just so rarely wears flat shoes, the only pictures I could find are movie stills. I believe she is a strong 5'7" so he must be close to it.

If you are talking about the photo shown on this page, you are massively harsh and off the mark saying Jennifer has 10 inches on Josh in her heels. Although he is a tad closer to the camera, he isn't much below her eyes really (and she definitely doesn't have a low eye level or anything), so I'd say she looks about 5 inches taller. Also her heels look more 3.75-4 inch range than 5 inches, she has maybe 2.5-3 inches more footwear than he does.

In all honestly the more seen of him, the more the 5ft 5 mark seems a generous enough estimate for him. But if Jennifer is 5ft 7.5 as she once claimed it does seem as though he could measure a fraction over 5ft 5, so perhaps her 5ft 7.5 measurement could have been earlier in the day.
Levi said on 2/Dec/15
In the premier photos, Josh is packing some serious elevators in some pictures, and is still owns by Jennifer Lawrence.

5'5" is pretty accurate imo, maybe even lower

nilkn said on 26/Nov/15
I think he's shorter than 5'5". The height differences in this photo are just too big.

In his defense, Lawrence appears to be wearing some ginormous heels and Hemsworth might even be wearing some generous footwear himself (the heel on his right shoe is clearly visible here, but it's hard to tell just how much height it's adding). Josh appears to be in fairly honest footwear.

That said, Lawrence appears to have 10 inches on him here. If her heels add five inches, that'd place her at 6' 1/2".

Either way, subtracting 10 inches from 6' 1/2" gives us an estimated height for Josh of 5' 2.5". Now maybe I was too harsh in my estimate of Lawrence having 10 inches on him, or maybe her heels are even bigger than 5 inches, so we might round that up to 5'3" or even 5'4". But I think 5'5" is pushing it.
Sara*Alyse said on 25/Nov/15
No way he's 5'7 he's like 5'3 & who cares anyway Josh your amazing!😜😘
Jerome said on 21/Oct/15
He also have odd proportions that make him look shorter than he actually is. How long would his inseam be?
[Editor Rob: 28-9 inch possibly.]
losdako said on 17/Aug/15
He forgot to wear his shoes lift, if he does, he will be listed as 5'7 here.
Unlisted said on 13/Aug/15
I'm 5'7 and if I stand next to my dad who is 6'3 my height isn't that big a difference between Liam and josh, my guess is he isn't 5'7 unless he is wearing shoe lifts...

No,don't bother anymore with it honey'. I'm still in love with you. No matter what. Cause height doesn't matter our love to each other. <3 ShainaRose. No mattwr how short you are now, but in my heart, youre height overlaps me to love you more than i ever could.

Lawrence is at least 5-10, and she has like 6 inches on him. I bet he's 5-4. In her heels here she looks about 10 inches taller than him.

Lawrence is nowhere near 5-10 barefoot, she initially claimed an honest 5ft 7.5 and that's the height she's listed at.

Ikib, Peeta is 5'10ish in the books. He is described as average height, and it's noted that he is a lot bigger than Katniss, who is small in the books.

On the Hunger Games tribute guide book Peeta Mellark is 5'10 haha!
Josh said on 11/May/15
I'm a solid 5'5 and I pretty much look like that next to someone who is 6'3. I think he is a stronger 5'5. Like 5'5.25-5'5.5
Non of ur business said on 2/May/15
He looks about 5ft 4
Narr said on 29/Apr/15
Looks around 170 on this photo. But maybe he has lifts.
Tom said on 26/Apr/15
From a movie even I got to see Jen and Josh and take a picture with them. I'm a 5-2 man, so I expected to be the smallest by a margin, but was surprised. Josh is tiny! 5-4 is my guess, and he's very small too. He looked physically weak. Jen on the other hand looked like a goddess. 5-11 with 4 inches platforms her breasts were level with my head.
Classified said on 17/Apr/15
Let me make this clear, people... "Tall" is overrated.
He's probably less than 5'7", and so what?! It shouldn't "bug" him, since he's the more handsome guy! Height is irrelevant... BUT SHORT PEOPLE RULE!!!

@Skye Its all about the camera angles in hollywood. You will never see a short actor's height being flawed in movies. The camera angles helps so people wont notice the height difference.
David méndez 6'1 said on 14/Apr/15
Either 5'5 or 5'5.5 not much taller not much shorter
Ally said on 13/Apr/15
No way he's 5'7 if Jen is listed as 5'7.5" so 5'5 seems right

Could be slightly taller, like 5'5.25".

Yeah this guy should get 5ft 5.25 listing like Jonah Hill gets 5ft 6.25 and Daniel Craig 5ft 10.25.
Josh said on 19/Mar/15
He's probably slightly more than this listing. I don't think he dips below this. Maybe 5'5.25 - 5.5.5 is better for him.
Stan said on 18/Mar/15

5 foot 5 and a quarter, like Marshall Allman and perhaps Elijah Wood. I can see him beating Daniel Radcliffe in a staredown who is probably a little under 5ft 5.

Josh Hutcherson's height is 5ft 5.75in (167 cm)

But, 166 cm is a fair guess to.

If jen lawrence even in heels is that much taller than him i couldnt beleve he is 5ft7

is that real???i don't think josh is just 5ft 5in tall...
SS said on 31/Aug/12
@Drew, being a full head taller is only 8-9 inches depending on head shape, and Hemsworth doesn't seem to have a big head. Don't believe me? Just look around with all the legit 6'4 guys Rob takes photos with, as they stand a full head taller than him.
TJ said on 30/Aug/12
If Liam is 6'3, Jennifer is pulling off a good 6ft in those heels. No wonder she is making Josh look smaller than he is.
Drew said on 20/Aug/12
@SS, Liam is a full head taller which is a good 10 inches. Josh is as listed.
cainw said on 17/Aug/12

Rob not trying too be funny looks like he forgot too take growth hormones he if had taken growth hormones he would have been 6ft 1in do you think he should take a growth hormone product too grow taller.
[Editor Rob:
Tall men can only be tall if there are shorter men...if all men were the same height there'd be little interest in height ;)

I think he is doing very well for himself as an actor - regardless of height.]

Either this guy needs an upgrade or Liam and Jennifer need to be downgraded, Rob. How is Liam only a full head taller than a 5'5 guy? Either Josh is 5'7 or Liam is 6'1.
leonari said on 24/Jul/12
Josh is cool actor. Did a great job in hunger Games. But folks believing he is 5'7" should check their eyes. He could be 5'5.5" but anything above is ludicrous. Even in the pic above, maybe using lifts he surely looks his 5'5" frame. And him claiming 5'7": Possible that management asked him to claim that now that he has become more well known.
Brad said on 24/Jul/12
As listed, Taylor Swift made him look like it last week.

CK said on 7/Feb/12
Rob, do you think he's grown to 5'6" now? I think he may be somewhere around there.
[Editor Rob: he could be in the middle of 5ft 5 and 6, I think he looks to wear normal shoes.]
kilopt said on 6/Feb/12
actually, i think he grew up a bit... if he is 5'5, next to 6'3 dwayne johnson, josh would barely reach his shoulder... but actually he didnt look that short to me in that movie, he reached almost dwayne's jaw... and nexto to luis guzman, who is said to be 5'7, josh seems a bit taller... so i wold give him 5'7.5 honestly, i think he grew up a bit...
Francesca said on 17/Jan/12
After seeing recent pictures of him and Vanessa Hudgens (promoting Journey 2), who is also of a controversial height (I am assuming around 5'1''), I would have to estimate a bit more than 5'5''-- particularly because she was in a decent pair of heels.

Whatever his height may be, I prefer slightly shorter/stockier men, anyways.
J said on 9/Dec/11
He's just pushing 5'7". Met him a couple months ago. But yeah, definitely not a solid 5'7", maybe in a couple of years.

"A few child stars are ending up short Ive noticed like Josh @ 5ft5, D.Radcliffe also 5ft5, m.Culkin @5ft6, hmmm I wonder y. I guess they could just have short genes."

I think this is because, when casting, directors are searching for GOOD actors. Now, if you need someone to play a 12 year old in a film, you're going to find it hard to find someone that age who can act with all the nuances and emtotion required. As such, it wouldn't be uncommon for a 14 year old to play that part; They will be more experienced, and a bit of makeup to soften up their features and BAM, you have a 12 year old. But still, they have to look young-ish, and this usually comes from people who are already small. So a 5ft3 14 year old would be perfect.

Soon he'll be starring along side Jennifer Laurence in the "Hunger Games". She's roughly 5'7" but the character he plays is meant to be taller. I guess they could always give him a bit of a heel.
Larry said on 14/May/11
I met him a few years back, don't know if he's grown much since then but he was pretty short, really nice guy though
Rikashiku said on 1/May/11
5'5"! Wow i didn't imagine that. @USYD, you're right. Men slow down their growth around 18 but keep growing into their 20's. My brother for instance, 193cm when we measured him, 195 cm now but that was probably a lucky growth. On average, a person over 18 would probably have about 2cm left in them.

So Josh could see 5'6.5" before the age of 21, though dont expect to see that anytime soon.
Aaron said on 19/Apr/11
I'm I'm almost 18, grew .25 inches over the last month. Little over 6'5" right now, smaller than my grandparents because of malnutrition (they're tall Finnish people), always been another late bloomer... I'll probably hit 6'6".

Hutcherson might have another inch in him. He certainly has more growing to do. I know my frame isn't even close to done growing at this point; my shoulders are only 19.5" apart.
mateodelaghetto619 said on 18/Apr/11
Nah never take someones word about their height, especially when they are deemed short. He has a stocky build which makes him look shorter. 5'5 is about right, not to mention he was just as tall as Annasophia Robb in Terabithia despite being 1 year older and they are both short.
David said on 18/Apr/11
The truth is, most guys are done growing when they're 18. Don't expect him to grow anymore, unless he's a late bloomer, which he probably isn't.

Can't believe he hasn't grown a thing, he's definetly staying at 5'5.
