Well, it's lucky he's not you then Arthur eh? why should he be ashamed over something as trivial as height out of interest? oh, wait because of pathetic morons, silly me I forgot they plague this earth with their shallow idiocy.

i used to be 5'5. but I have done stretches for a year or two and now i am 5'6.5. which is awesome!
Arthur said on 2/Feb/17
If I were him, I would be ashamed to stand next to Hemsworth and Lawrence. Look at that photo, it's humiliating for him. Hope he has a good sense of humour about this. Then again, he claims 5'7 so I kinda doubt he has...
Funny thing is, he didn't need to have said that he is insecure. Just the fact he claims 5'7 is a dead giveaway of it.

What's worse? This guy's acting or his ludicrous 5'7" claims? If 5'7" bugs him a lot, then how does his real 5'5" height make him feel?
Lee said on 22/Jan/17
Im not an expert, but I think he looks like a weak 5'4, strong 5'3-ish
Al said on 19/Jan/17
He looks much less than 5 feet 5 imo

Josh said on 7/Dec/16
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
5'4 no more.

I think this tow pictures prove that Hutcherson is close to 5'5
Chris said on 26/Oct/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!

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

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.
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

@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.
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.
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?
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.
CD said on 5/Dec/15
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.

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.

No way he's 5'7 he's like 5'3 & who cares anyway Josh your amazing!😜😘
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...
Shaina Love Josh said on 28/Jun/15
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.
