How tall is Jude Law ?

Jude Law height: 5ft 11in (180 cm)

English actor best known for roles in The Talented Mr Ripley, Enemy at the Gates and A.I is a chameleon of height.

In Allure magazine he stated, "It depends on my mood, really. I'm five nine, and some days I only feel five nine. But if I'm feeling tall, I say six feet!", sometimes though he deadpans.

In the Guardian: "(Law stands 5ft 10in.) 'People always go, "God, Jude's really short." No, I just hang out with very, very, very tall men."

He's 5' 10.5".
Spirit Level says on 24/Aug/14
I do think that 5' 10.5" (179 cm) is accurate for him. He can appear taller at times with decent footwear though.
Spirit Level says on 24/Aug/14
I can't see him above 5' 10.5". 5' 9" is undercooking him.
Guy says on 27/Jul/14
He looks like 177-178

He certainly doesn't look under 5'11 there, but is he wearing lifts though?
Sean says on 24/Apr/14
@Maio, I just saw that for the first time and thought that was kind of funny. Also when it was said that even with lifts, making Hawke two inches taller would be "impossible."
viennese says on 24/Apr/14
about 2 years ago he was shooting a movie called "360" in vienna, where i met him and his cast in a less crowded bar(on the top floor of a hotel) around 11 pm. i didn't pay much attention to him, but at one point he walked right past me and seemed to be just a smidge taller than me. im usually about 5'10.25 late in the evening. he was wearing regular dress shoes, i was in converse. to cut a long story short: probably around 5'10.5-75

He is the same high of Matt Damon...178

Mm in g imaging them on the DVD cover of Enemy Fiennes actually looks easily an inch taller than Law. IN the film I didn't think he looked taller than Jude at all although granted his posture wasn't always great and he was often arms around people and leaning talking to people. I don't think you could really argue under 5'10 anyway. He's taller than you think.


He did not strike me as looking tall when i saw him in London just average sized and I am only 5'7 range.

However he was hunching down and wearing a hat. Probably did not want to get recognised.
leonari says on 1/Apr/14
Maybe he wears Lifts but Downey is the king of LIFTS. He doesn't mind that its obvious... He could afford the best footwear (like Don's) but he prefers to stuff his shoes with the absolute max lift possible so that anybody looking at his shoes notices that something weird is going on. Love Downey- one of my favorite actors of all time but his lifted shoes are pathetic

Law looked a pretty similar height to Joseph Fiennes and thought he looked slightly taller if anything but they were about level in their scenes together. Rob has Fiennes at 5'11,5!
Arch Stanton says on 1/Apr/14
Doubt it Jamie. Jude looked a bit taller than Joseph Fiennes in Enemy at the Gates.
jamieorr4 says on 1/Apr/14
i honestly think 5ft9 is probably true he doesn't look much tall than Robert downey jr who i think is between 5ft6 and 5ft7 and also jude does wear lifts
Arch Stanton says on 14/Feb/14
He does seem to edge out Nicole Kidman in Cold Mountain but it might be camera angles I don't know.
truth says on 11/Feb/14
179cm
rancher says on 3/Feb/14
listing seems accurate but more or less in the 5-10 range

imo he comes off very average height, almost short in his films for whatever reason

180 is definitely more likely than 175 though, Click Here with Daniel Craig he looks about this.

Fully agree on your label "chameleon of heights" Rob. Jude Law is one of the very few celeb guys I which I'm actually convinced of what he is. In recent photos he really seems 5'9 range, but then in other photos he can look easily 5'11", and it's the same in his films. In the talented Mr. Ripley I think you can rule out him being as low as 5'9 flat, but anything from 177-182 he can look at times!!

For instance see him with 5'9.5" Ewan Mcgregor

You could argue anything from 176 to 182 in those two photos alone. Is he a lift wearer? I doubt it, he tends to wear campus like sneakers a lot. His height is all over the place though...
James says on 7/Jan/14
Well rob he did not look much bigger than 5'9 when I walked past him Paddington.


Guess pavement and his build made him seem smaller?
[Editor Rob: it's a helluva lot harder judging height out and about on the street. I'd be very surprised if he measured around that mark.]
Arthur says on 5/Jan/14
I don't get it Rob. If Jude said he's 5'9'', why would you say he's 5'11'' ???
[Editor Rob: I think he was trying a bit of humour, I don't think he looks just 5ft 9]
cole says on 26/Dec/13
@Editor Rob: I agree; can't see him as a flat 5'9. I'm just saying proportionally he doesn't strike me as your average 5'11 flat guy - but more like a 5'9ish guy (a very strong 5'9, 177 cm+). But I understand proportions doesn't tell the whole story. For example I am 5'10.75 and a bunch of my 5'9ish friends have legs just as long as mine, or a tad bit longer even - whilst my torso is as long as my 6'1.5 friend's, and my arms are even longer than his...

Back to Jude Law... I take it you wouldn't argue 178 or slightly less as a possibility for Jude then?

Either way I think the 5'11 is a bit generous. 178 cm range - maybe that's his low, and that he generally walks about 179 and wakes around 180?

5'10.5 or 5'10.75 I would say is fair for him. Maybe put him at 5'10.75 to begin with?
cole says on 24/Dec/13
I could actually see him telling the truth (partly) with his 5'9 claim - when you see him on his own, he has the proportions of a guy around that height. He looks around the 6ft mark only in his lifts. I'm reading "I am 5'9 (or so), but if I want to appear taller (like 6ft range), I have the tools to do so" in his quote in Allure. I don't think he's a flat 5'9 though - 177/178 cm range seems probable. 179 cm might be possible, but a strong 180 cm (5'11 = 180,3 cm) - I just can't see that as his barefoot height.

What do you say Rob? Time for a downgrade? Anywhere between 177 and 179 cm will do.
[Editor Rob: 179 is a possibility, but I can't see him as 5ft 9]
James says on 2/Dec/13
Clive Owen 6'1.5 (187cm)
Jude Law 5'10.5 (179cm)
Realist says on 2/Dec/13
About 3 to 3.5 inches less than Clive Owen who is 186-188, 5'10.5 is correct.
James says on 29/Nov/13
Rob I was near primrose hill in London yesterday and i walked past jude law.

Honestly he looked a little shorter than 5'11 from my perspective. I did have on big shoes but do you a weak 5'10 could be on the cards?

What do you think rob maybe a shade less than 5'11 for law?
[Editor Rob: a weak 5ft 11 is possible for him yeah]
Dejavu says on 5/Nov/13
I agree with lelman that he is a left wearer. He can look 5'10 range to a good 6'0.
Louis says on 4/Nov/13

They say 6'1 in Gattaca, albeit he is in a wheelchair...

Clearly a big lift/elevator man. Can look anywhere from 5'9"/5'10" to 6'1"/6'2", just look at Chachi's photos. Not to mention the photo with Guy Ritche and Downie Jr, posted below.
jordydecke says on 16/Oct/13

Doesn't make much sense, seeing as most people believe Craig is a smidge under 5'10. Jude clearly wears special shoes for special occasions.
Falco92 says on 27/Sep/13
5 feet 10-10.25! No more.
FM says on 7/Sep/13
Yves, I saw that movie also - I think it's possible he could have had lifts throughout the movie. Check out the premiere picture with them. Pretty close in height, unless you think Jude is wearing lifts.

To me he looks like he could be any from 5'9" to 6', as he said.

Rob, I know you've seen this pic, but what do you think about it:

Click Here

You have Daniel Craig listed as 5'10.25, and looks like he has a inch and some change on Jude Law- making his 5'9" claim seem accurate. They both are in normal shoes, no heel advantage to either one. And the ground looks level to me.
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't use a shot like that to compare them...you'd be better with one were they are standing together on flat ground, that's a pavement and they are on the move.]
cole says on 2/Aug/13
Rob. The people who claim to have met Jude in the description, Steve on the airport, and Noodles, is that legit or have you just picked any random comments from the comment-section?
[Editor Rob: either comment/email, but they are like any comment really so I think better removing them from the description these days.]

[Editor Rob: maybe Downey is selling Jude some spare elevators :)]

Haha! Jeez I really can't understand this whole lift-thing with some of these celebs. I mean, when it gets to this (what Jude is wearing in that pic), it's just getting rediculous. However tall Jude really is, be it 5'9, 5'10 or 5'11, he's by no means a manlet that needs to wear that kind of footwear to look above average height. Unless he likes wearing high heels... I'd might see someone about that!

Btw. what do you think about Guy Ritchie's stature? Commonly listed 5'11. Not quite sure about that one.
[Editor Rob: guy could be somewhere in 5ft 10 range]
Balrog says on 2/Aug/13
Like I said before I think he claimed his real height and admitted that he wears funny shoes "If I'm feeling tall I say 6 feet (with my lifts and special shoes on)"

He is obviously no higher than 5'9" if he says he is only 5'9"
Come on Rob get real.

romanspqr says on 23/Jul/13
OK. Daniel Craig and Jude law pic. Daniel Craig is taller. Yet he is listed at an inflated 5'10.25, even tho Keenan Thompson, 5'8, is about the same height as Mr bond. But ignoring that fact for a sec...how does 5'11 person, wearing miles...so he should be pushing 6ft, get dwarfed by a guy standing 5'10.25? I'm calling shenanigans on law, Craig, Damon, Pitt, and clooney.
cole says on 22/Jul/13
cole says on 16/Jul/13
Yeah, 5'10 - 5'10.5 seems like a reasonable enough range for Jude. You sure on 5'11 Rob?
[Editor Rob: 179 isn't impossible]

Perhaps 5'10.5 is what he should be listed? His proportions doesn't look the best, and he tends to wear rather chunky footwear. What do you make of his 5'9 claim, was he joking?
cole says on 16/Jul/13
Yeah, 5'10 - 5'10.5 seems like a reasonable enough range for Jude. You sure on 5'11 Rob?

Agreed that Jude is 5ft 10in. Maybe not quite 5'11".

He can look 5'11 or more at times, but I am sure he is closer to 5'10 in reality.

Silent d says on 22/Jun/13
The daniel craig photo proves that he is not 180cm. He also has a shoe advantage. He is wearing nike hitops and daniel craig is wearing converse like shoes. 176cm at most.
James says on 20/Jun/13
@truth178

I was 175 bang on at 16 measured around midday. Now at 22 I measure 182.5 at midday. From 21 to 22 i've frown 0.5cm so im finishing up, although I know someone a year older than me who at age 22-23 had a mini growth spurt of a solid 2 inches, hope for us all yet!
truth178cm says on 18/Jun/13
Matt Damon is 177/178cm, same as Jude Law.

@Craig yeah I was also only 173-174 at 16. Though I kept a record and finished at 19 at 177-178cm. You can grow an inch after 16. If we stopped at 16, the average would be like 5ft9 tops. From 17-19 you stop growing.
Craig 177 says on 12/Jun/13
I've got a mate who claims 5' 9". He's actually 5' 10.25". We're both TenPin Bowlers, so I've seen him in all types of footwear and just in socks.

Believe it or not, some people are very modest when claiming their height. Possibly because they don't really care about height or may have not been officially measured since they were like 16...

I personally reckon Jude Law is 5' 10". He doesn't look 5' 9". 177 cm bare minimum.
Oz says on 2/Jun/13
Since he said 5'9 I'm assuming he is 5'9
Selena says on 25/May/13
Why is he 5'11 on here if he said himself he's 5'9? Like we know his height better than he does?
jean says on 23/May/13
I dont understand why he is listed as 5"11 if he stated he is 5"9
Chris says on 22/May/13
Id guess he is 176 -177 in Mr ripley he is barley taller than Gwyneth and about the same height as Matt Damon.

lelman says on 21/May/13
Always assumed he looked about 6', but he practically stated that he's 5'9 there so I'm gonna just go with 5'9" or 5'10".
gian92 says on 3/May/13
he looks me 5'11.50 because near Channing Tatum he was only 3 cm shorter .
penguinboy25 says on 17/Apr/13
Eh 5'10 about average range. Can look taller at times because of a narrow build though.

miranda kerr in heels towers harvey weinstein who is around 2inch taller than jude

after seeing this and downey with keitel, i'm sure downey 5'6 max jude 5'9 max
[Editor Rob: I'd say they might give close to 3.5 inch, but it's on the street, so there's a good chance the paving is in her favour from looking at a few of those photos.]
MaskDeMasque says on 6/Apr/13
5'9 range. Skinny dudes look taller, I'm 5'9.5 and weigh 9 stone(used to weigh just over 8!) and when people guess my height they always say either 5'10 or 5'11.
Craig 176 says on 25/Mar/13
Actually, 5' 10" looks right for Law. The lowest I've seen him appear is 5' 9.5" but he may have had footwear or ground level disadvantage on those occasions.

Yeah, nothing below 5' 10". I still think that 5' 11" barefoot is a stretch though...
Craig 176 says on 22/Mar/13
He can certainly look 180. I can see why Rob's listed him as this. But he can appear 5' 9.5". He's worn lifts before, no doubt about it. I reckon he's 5' 9.5" barefoot and wears 1.5 inch lifts to reach 5' 11".

177. Not 5' 9" flat.

i like this guy doesnt care about height cause he looks clearly taller than his 175cm claim. its the same with him losing hair, he isnt hiding it at all. hard to believe that he would wear lifts to reach 180cm. but still could be 179cm it would be the mean of both of his claims (175 and 183).

Tempest says on 18/Feb/13
There's no possible way we're going to pin down heights to half inch margins. There are too many factors at play to get that close. If Jude Law says 5'9" and you think he looks taller, I think it's time to reassess how you judge heights and handle your site. Seems as though you've taken his honest 5'9" claim and his 6' joke height, drawn the marks on the wall and threw a dart somewhere in between.
M says on 15/Feb/13
I don't get it. He states his height as 5'9" and he is listed as 5'11"? Very, very few men would claim to be smaller than they actually are.

He's on a film-set, and like klem says, they are simply boots, giving him a 4,5-5 cm boost. But I agree he's not 180 cm barefoot. What he is exactly though, I can't tell, probably between 175 and 178 cm.

Those are just boots, 1.75 inch, not lifts. And believe me guys even at 180+ cm are height conscious and want to look taller, around 6-0. I am 182 cm and I like to wear thick shoes to have 6-0 to 6-1 feeling.
As for his height, I think 5-10 would be spot on.

Jude statement about 'it depends on my mood' says it all, that is definitely a statement from a guy insecure about his height, just think about it. Would a guy comfortable about his height play around like that? trying to throw off the person asking the question? No.

He's 5'9, 5'10 at most, the pics with Keanu and Kevin Spacey say it all...Needs a downgrade Rob!!!
I can tell Jude was one of the celebs to contact you to tell you his 'real' height.

What he's saying with his "It depends on my mood, really. I'm five nine, and some days I only feel five nine. But if I'm feeling tall, I say six feet!" claim, is that he's 5'9, but he have to tools to appear 6ft. He's the most obvious lift-wearer in all of Hollywood. 5'9 at best.

@Louis
Their average is 185.6 last time I heard, which is more like 6'1.1, and I consider a 1.1" difference to be near 6'. Sorry I didn't specify it down to the CM, but that is why I said "near"...to point out these few tall regions have exceptional averages, not just the Dinaric Alps, who is the only nation (so far) that slightly breaks a 6' average. Is that specific enough? Which is beside the point is the first place: 6' is not representative of the average human height.
Silent d says on 21/Oct/12
Barely taller than robert downey jr? He looks at least 8-10cm taller. Jude might be a lift wearer but he's more 180cm than brad pitt. I will settle for 179cm.

I see some of you users calling 5'11" - 6'0" tall. That's not tall at all, that's average. 6'2" is tall.
In my family it 's normal to be 6'1" +, so 6'3" is where tall starts at :P
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Ummm, good for you? Only the tallest regions in the world average near 6ft. The overall average male height worldwide is not anywhere even near that. Most European countries average around 5'9.5 to 5'10.

I've seen pics of him with Michael Caine recently, and he's about 2 inches shorter than that; Michael Caine is 6'1", so 5'11" would be right around Jude's height.

175-177 cm at most.

in repo men hwas 4 inches shorter then whitaker 6 foo 2. Nothing more than 5 foot 10. his thin frame makes him look taller. He alwasys gets towerd by 6 foot .like clive owen in closer. In enemy at the gates he is only taller then 5 foot 9 ed harris by an inch. case closed 5 foot 10
Mathew says on 2/Sep/12
At 5'11", why would he claim 5'9"? That makes no sense.
Shaun says on 26/Aug/12
Well Maximus my sister also thought Brad Pitt was short. I also thought at one time Leo di Caprio and Timberlake were shortish too. 5'11" range for some reason may have a mixed perception. A legitimate 1 metre 80 or above though shouldn't really ever appear "short" in public and will usually look tallish.

I just watched Jude Law in the 2004 movie Closer with Julia Roberts. He walks right up to her and is taller. I'm thinking, he must be standing on a step, but it showed him walking right up to her. So then, I'm thinking, he must be wearing elevator shoes.... That's how I landed in this "thread." But there's no denying that Nicole Kidman is definitely 5'11" and definitely taller than he. But I do think he probably wears any number of "lifts" and elevator shoes!
Maximus says on 22/Aug/12
So when is 5'10" short???.....I'm 5'10" and no one ever calls me short. I think its the perception that some actors try to embelish their height with an extra 2" to 3" so when someone actually meets them they believe that they should be 6'1" instead of 5'10" for example.....Vin Disel who is between 5'10" and 5'11" but some people believed him to be 6'1 to 6'2.

@mimi
Jude said he is 5'9 so he was probably in lifts when you saw him, 5'8-5'9 is his height, could be even less
mimi says on 17/Aug/12
Past by him on the street in NYC a year ago. He was doing a play. I was surprised. He was probably 5'10" or 5'11". I always thought he was short. He is average height, has a largish head. More masculine looking in person. I've always thought he looked effeminate and small in movies.

Rob, take a look at my most recent post.

Do you see 5' 9" range for Jude Law? I sure do.
[Editor Rob: it's a funny one the 5ft 9 quote, does he look 5ft 9 - sometimes he might, but he can look 5ft 11 a lot to me!]
monaug5 says on 9/Aug/12
(176 - 177 cm) the proof is all over this thread
177 dude says on 9/Aug/12
Those of you who believe that Jude Law is a legit 5' 11", prepare yourselves for a shock.

Jude Law with Prince Charles - who is in the 5' 9" range:

And then, he magically grows (as you do in your 30s)...

With trickery he can appear 5' 11" (180 cm). But in reality he's no more than 5' 9.5" (177 cm).
BigT says on 5/Aug/12
I'm thinking 5'10 at best, 177 cm is ideal for him.
bodwaya says on 4/Aug/12
in road to perditon he was 2 inches shorter then 6 foot tom hanks. No more than 5 foot 10
Louis says on 2/Aug/12
he said 5'9 and that's abaolute max

I met Jude backstage at a play in London. I am 5 foot 8 and I was wearing boots with 3 inch heels. I stood right next to him for a pic and we were then about equal height. 5 foot 11 very accurate for his height.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

uhm that makes him 5'10 since he wears shoes too

i thought he is 179-182cm

but now i think he is more like about 178cm maybe 177cm at night nothing under that ...but who knows
Louis says on 25/Jul/12
Difference is more than just inch, at least 2, maybe ecen 2.5
BigT says on 25/Jul/12
Daniel Craig is taller for sure, hes 178 cm flat. I am actually starting to think that Jude Law really told the truth with his 59" claim.
Louis says on 25/Jul/12
I think that this is the best pic because both are in sneakers, and on other photos they are are in dress shoes, and if Jude is in elevators they can give him more than 2 inch advantage over Craig
and he never looks more than inch taller than downey jr, i think he is 5'8
Louis says on 24/Jul/12
Rob, do you think that pic i posted is good enough to say that Craig is taller than jude or you still see jude taller?
[Editor Rob: there's images of them near the same height and Law taller, the odd one showing craig taller.]
Louis says on 24/Jul/12
Rob, do you still think that he is 5'11?
[Editor Rob: at times he can look smaller ]

@Jesse
You really think that Jude isn't wearing lifts?
Jesse says on 14/Jun/12
The picture Nic posted says it all really...
But Downey Jr. is 5'7", and those boots he's wearing seems flat, but actually adds a good 3 inches, kinda like bieberboots. So he's 5'10" with them on, and Jude looks about 5'11" with the dress shoes, so basically 5'9.75" - 5'10" barefoot for Jude Law.
Marcus says on 14/Jun/12
i've seen him at the Donmar - in Anna Christie and he is in 5'7 range
Chameleon says on 13/Jun/12
LOL, look at the pic NIC posted!
Nads says on 12/Jun/12
Used to work at a cinema where he was a fairly regular customer, I'm 5'3 and he was barely a few inches taller than me standing really close, I'd say 5'7/8 absolute max, but was totally gorgeous :)
joe joe says on 11/Jun/12
@TobyTheTank 5'11-6'0 is not average. for the average american or british male the avererge is 5'9"- 5'10" fact. the talest nation states are Denmark were the average is 6'0" and the netherlands around 6'0" to 6'1"
nic says on 10/Jun/12
Its Official guys, we can finally put this to rest. The pic says it all: JUDE LAW IS 5'9" Click Here
JohnnyRB says on 12/Feb/12
@cora: Diaz is not a full 5ft8 and she is slouching a little bit and those dress shoes of Jude Law arent so flat, they surely have an inch heal.
TobyTheTank says on 11/Feb/12
I see some of you users calling 5'11" - 6'0" tall. That's not tall at all, that's average. 6'2" is tall.
In my family it 's normal to be 6'1" +, so 6'3" is where tall starts at :P
My 12 year old brother is 5'11.75", he'll probably be very tall. My 50 year old brother was 6'0.5" at 15 and stopped at 6'3.5". I am 6'1.5" myself so i'm among the shortest in my family, only my dad (6'1") and Grandpa (6'1.25") is shorter out of the adults.
Anyway, Jude is probably bang on 5'10", never looks "tall" as you would say 5'11" is. Got stumpy legs and average torso.
