How tall is Leonardo DiCaprio ?

Leonardo DiCaprio height: 5ft 11.5in (182 cm)

American actor best known for starring in films Titanic, Inception, The Departed, Shutter Island and The Wolf of Wall Street. On Teletext UK, a journalist once said: "He stands no more than 5ft 10ins (if that), is rake thin" and The Sun also reported the reason Gisele Bundchen broke up with Leo was (in her own words) that her"ideal man has to be taller than me". Leo himself claims to be 6 foot. In AccessHollywood he says " 'That's the number one thing people say to me constantly 'Wow! You're a lot taller than I thought you'd be,...They have a perception, I guess, that most actors are gnomes or something.' For the record, Leonardo hangs in the air at about 6 feet tall"

My accountant used to live in LA and she said she met DiCaprio at a wedding for an agent. She said unprompted - "he's taller than I thought." She's about 5'71/2 & I'm a weak 5'10. I asked if he was at least 6'. She said 'definitely' . Second person (though second-hand whose told me he was at least six and 'tall.' Also, saw him on early letterman (his only appearance - and when he gets to Dave's desk he's standing right next to him and has close to an inch on him . Hard guy to figure out...

He's around 6'0. Below that never! He dated Gisele Bundchen and she's 1,79m. In this picture he's at least 5cm taller than her Click Here
Emil 182.5 cm says on 12/Jul/14
He's a bit of a sloucher, I think thats why he trends to look 5'10.5-5'11.
I find him no less than 5'11.25
cole says on 12/Jul/14
Well Blanchett has claimed "about 5'8 - I think", meaning she's more likely to be under it than over. I'm just wondering here, but is it to justify guys like Leo having a 5'11.5 listing that you give Blanchett 0.5in over her own claim? I mean, even in solid heels she can look a tad shorter than 5'10 listed Matt Damon in dress shoes/boots, so that should tell you something.
Dmeyer says on 5/Jul/14
Blanchet is 5'11-11.25 shoes on leo looks aleast 6'0.25 flat shoes on 5' 11.5 is fair
foster says on 4/Jul/14
179cm
Jackie says on 29/Jun/14
In really any of the scenarios outside of live events or the red carpets he looks 5'11 or slightly under. I think Leo is one of the people that we should take into consideration only in real life scenarios and not on events.
Doug says on 29/Jun/14
Rob, if you look at any pics of Leo and Toni Garrn outside he always looks 3-4 cms shorter. This is even to his advantage as this is taking into consideration slippers and flip flops on both of them. So, if he truly is 182, then why is there a noticeable difference between the two if she is 183. Thoughts on this too Rob?
Two Pump Jump says on 28/Jun/14
he looks 5'11"
Doug says on 26/Jun/14
Also, Rob what do you think of the pics of Leo and Toni Garrn at the beach. She is a definite 6'. But, he looks about 3-4 cms shorter. So, what do you think? I think his sneaky ift wearing can make him appear taller than the 179 that he is. Thoughts?
[Editor Rob: they make him look barely 5ft 11 but I don't know about how they'd look if posing on known flat ground]
Doug says on 25/Jun/14
If Chiwetel Ejiofor isnt a lift wearer which I dont think he is, then Leo is 179. But, I do think Leo is a lift wearer and really good at concealing it. In the above pic his shoes have no open arc. Why do you think that is? its because he has lifts in them.
cole says on 24/Jun/14
There are loads of pictures of Leo on some of his vk.com fansites (one contained over 7500 pics). Here's a couple more I found with Garrn on that. Just in pure stature it's fair to assume he's a bit shorter. His legs also looks quite a bit shorter than hers.

Throwing in some more I found where I just can't see him over 5'11:

With 5'7 listed Christoph Waltz

With 5'6 listed Bono (who's most likely in massive elevators)

With 5'3 listed Martin Scorsese

With 5'6.25 listed Jonah Hill

No good comparison-wise, but looking pretty much eye to eye with (imo) 5'9.5 - 5'9.75 (5'10 listed) Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Doug says on 23/Jun/14
Yeah Cole I completely agree and he always stands closer to the camera when with Toni Garrn. Yet, even then his scalp line reaches below hers. Also, he looks closer when they are shoulder to shoulder. If he were 183, then there would be no difference. But, there really is a difference of 3-4 cms with his 6' or 182-183 gf. Maybe Toni Garrn is below 6' but I doubt it. Maybe she is above it. But, all in all, I see him as a 179 guy. He even looksed 4 cms shorter than a slouching Jon Bernthal, who was in 4 cms heels. Albeit Leo might have been slouching a bit too but not as much as Jon Bernthal. Also Leo was in .5cm slippers. So, I really think he cant be over 179.
cole says on 23/Jun/14
Standing closer to the camera has that effect of making you look taller.
Plus Bloom isn't 5'11.
Doug says on 20/Jun/14
Seahawkfan you do have to remember that Leonardo is quite possible a lift wearer. I mean look at pictures of him with actualy 183 people or 6' people like his gf. He always looks a good 3-4 cms shorter. So, I still stand by my estimate of 179.

6'0.25" is possible.
anonymous says on 11/Jun/14
Dmeyer, i don't think he's taller than you!
You met Hanks and you said he was 0,5" taller than you?
Aswell, in catch me if you can Leo is 0,5" shorter than Tommy Hanks, at least...
french guy says on 10/Jun/14
he is a solid 5'11", 181 and 182 cm is too much.
Alex 6'0 says on 10/Jun/14
Really looks no less than a 5'11 guy.
Dan says on 7/Jun/14
Same height as me, 181.5 :) :). Nice height!
DMEYER says on 1/Jun/14
i agree cole from wath i met him , its not enaugh to judge
Goose says on 1/Jun/14
I met a few people who have been in proximity & they all thought 6' but you guys are right that 'proximity' in not necessarily an accurate indicator.
Anon says on 1/Jun/14
He's an inch to an inch-and-a-half shorter than bald, 6'0.5"(?) Billy Zane. This based on red carpet shots of them together in similar formal shoes. I judge by difference in eye levels as well as the top of their heads to get an estimate. No less than 5'11"
Jake says on 31/May/14
saw him once grocery shopping, 5'11 seems legit.
Dejavu says on 30/May/14
I think 180cm min. He can look taller than 5'11.
Dmeyer says on 29/May/14
Goose the other dmeyer is not me i steel think min 181cm for him
cole says on 28/May/14
Dmeyer says he's seen Leo twice, once walking by him and once from a distance. It's very hard to tell his height to the tiniest fraction by being in his proximity for a couple of seconds like that. To do that you need to see him standing with people you know the exact height of, or stand right next to him for a bit yourself. And you need to know how much of a factor the footwear/headwear has on his and your appearance. Getting a good photo next to him on even ground, preferably full body makes it easier. If that's the case, then you could start arguing his height quite accurately down to the fraction. Dmeyer thinks he's a 181-182 cm guy, but rules out 180 cm flat. Personally I think that's a bold statement given the circumstances of which he saw him, and even a little laughable that he keeps dismissing this and that height purely based on the brief moments he saw him.

Mr.R's sighting of 5'10.5 might be one where Leo wasn't standing his tallest(?), but personally I think that 5'10.5 could be within the realms of possibility, but probably my lowest guess for what he's appeared. 5'11.25 is not impossible, but seems a bit unlikely from seeing him with estimated 171 cm range guys such as Oscar Isaac and Mark Ruffalo, a 168 cm guy like Jonah Hill and a 170 cm guy like Christoph Waltz. Add what he looks with 175 cm guys like Jamie Foxx, Tom Hardy and Joseph Gordon-Levitt to that, and the very fact that he at best looks the same height as 180 cm Jean Dujardin and Jon Bernthal - somewhere in/near 180 cm range is the most likely height for him. Next to the 186 cm Dom guy as well (a pic Rob posted in a response to Dmeyer), he really looks just 180 cm, maybe a shade over. 5'11 flat is overall the best bet imo.

Boy that was long...
Dmeyer says on 28/May/14
If the Guy is truly 171.5cm leo looks no taller than 179.5cm
Goose says on 27/May/14
DMeyer, previously you thought he could be 5'11 1/2 & I thought you'd been in his proximity. Why the downgrade?

How this is 5'7.5 vs 5'11.5 I will never know...
5'10 says on 19/May/14
He looks like a definite lift wearer I would put his height as still bein 5'10.5. I mean look at him with his current girlfriend. She seems to tower him at times and is never ever listed as being taller than 6'. Most of the time she is listed as 181 or 180. So, that would put him as being 178 or 179.
Dmeyer says on 19/May/14
For some reason j Hill apeared nearer 170cm , i was barefeet hé had 1.5cm shoes skate type he seemed 5'7.5 with thèm on but he does look not more than this near pitt évén counting shoes and pitt is defenetly no taller than 5'11
5'7 says on 17/May/14
I've seen Seahawksfan make some decent estimates (the ones on Hugh Jackman not being 6'2" for example as he's provided me with photos that have convinced me that he's not 6'2". He did say that Harry Styles was 6'5" though which is bizarre. Anyhow, Leonardo is 5'11.5.
jtm says on 15/May/14
looks 5'10 with jonah hill.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 15/May/14
I've actually met Jonah Hill at my with a family member whose measured as a legit 5'6.25" with Jonah Hill in sandals (I'll admit that I've met a fair amount), and Jonah Hill was clearly taller by at least an inch). Sorry for going with what I saw in real life. He actually appears taller in real life than he does in photos.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 14/May/14
6'5"+ is a giant.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 14/May/14
I said that 6'2" was really tall, not a giant.
cole says on 14/May/14
I've never seen him look more than 5'11 flat with Jonah Hill to be honest. There's a whole bunch of full body shots of them, and it's pretty clear that Jonah has to be at least scraping 170 cm / clearing it, if Leo is 5'11.5 (both very doubtful imo).

I will agree though that the 5'11.5 estimate is obviously something he's appeared a few times to get that listing by Rob, who is almost always extremely accurate with his estimates - but it's not something he looks anywhere near consistantly enough for me to agree with.

He has looked around 5'11 with a huge amount of celebs, not to mention with his various model girlfriends. With Jean Dujardin, Matt Damon, Ridley Scott, Martin Scorsese, Mark Wahlberg, Mark Ruffalo, Oscar Isaac and Tom Hanks to name a few (evidence is all over the place), he looks 5'11.

Mr. R estimates him at 179 cm (Rob would likely be shocked if that turned out to be true!), I wouldn't be very surprised, but I still maintain my 5'11 flat estimate, because that is what he appears more often than not.
Andrea says on 14/May/14
Yeah, Lillo, i do agree with you... Just ignore that seahawsfan guy ;)
Lillo thomas says on 14/May/14
Guys should not take seahawsfan seriously . The dude posted some crazy things like 6'2 is a giant in the United States and his insane arnold estimates, his bad pics with terrible angles etc. And yep leo dicrapio look 5'11 max with Jonah hill. 6'1.5 is a joke.
cole says on 14/May/14
Some agencies lie, yeah, but that's usually not on the downgrading end! Doubt any model-agency would ever list someone 5'11 if they were 6'0.
Balrog says on 13/May/14
Seahawsfan, I don't know if that is a joke, but there is no way he's pulling 6'1.5'' on that pic. Solid 5'11''.
Banashee says on 13/May/14
His newest model girlfriend isnlisted by an agency at 180cm ( these dont lie ). Google pics of them, she is visibly taller than he is when they walk next to each other barefeet. 6'0 out of question. 5'11 - maybe.
[Editor Rob: some agencies do lie a bit!]
cole says on 13/May/14
@Seahawksfan: Are you actually being serious right now?? Jonah Hill is a 5'6 range guy at best, and being generous you could say there is 5 inches between them.

He looks 6'1.5", and the footwear is visible.
johnny says on 12/May/14
I just cant see over 5'10.5 I mean there is a lot of evidence suggesting that he isnt anything over it
johnny says on 12/May/14
I do get the feeling that he is a lift wearer, and I mean when he is not on the red carpet there is really a difference and change in height.
Its surprising how tall some of the women he dates are. Some seem to tower him like the current one.
[Editor Rob: I heard a rumour he was caught buying lifts from a guy outside Bronx Zoo once!]
Dmeyer says on 12/May/14
I steel think 5'11.25 minimum i dont Know who is the other dmeyer , hé should use another nickname Like dmeyer2 or something
cole says on 11/May/14
@Dmeyer: What happened to "5'11.25 minimum"?
Obivously I agree with johnny - at best he looks 180 cm with Ridley Scott.
cole says on 28/Apr/14
@Dmeyer: The top of his head is bang on the 6ft mark, and maybe with a wee correction in posture, he could hit 6'0.25 - 6'0.5. That's the fact of the mugshot, but it is from a movie, and a scene where we have no view of his footwear, so it's rather pointless arguing the fractions from the mugshot alone. He could be in 2 inch lifts or he could be in regular dress shoes - we just don't know. Assuming he's in regular dress shoes then yes, 5'11.25 or 5'11.5 is likely. But since it's hollywood I'd be sceptical to say anything for sure based just on the movie-mugshot.

I'd much rather argue over the scene where he in loafers looked noticably shorter than 5'11 John Bernthal who perhaps had a small advantage in footwear, or the premiere pics of Leo and 5'11 Jean Dujardin where Leo definitely didn't look taller. While in the movie Leo looked about 1 inch taller than Dujardin, so that supports the claim that he was indeed wearing lifts in some of the scenes, what's to say he didn't wear them in the mugshot-scene?
Dejavu says on 27/Apr/14
It's not like 5'11 is short though. He just dates tall women.
Dmeyer says on 27/Apr/14
cole says on 10/Jan/14
What's your take on the mugshot, Rob?

I'm think 5'11 flat at best barefoot.
[Editor Rob: it can depend, some people might stand near their measured height, but others could always be not standing as though being measured and drop 2cm]
I agree i havé à friend who insist hé is 178cm but usualy looks 176cm but when hé fully streches very rarely he can look 177.5cm
Dmeyer says on 26/Apr/14
Wakes at 183cm and 181cm night but could be 182cm too but not 180cm or 183cm
Hypado says on 26/Apr/14
Leo is 180/181cm
James B says on 26/Apr/14
Rob deep does look 5'9.5 with Leo in that pic. Would you agree?
[Editor Rob: he could have been one of the rare guys who got a bit more age 19 range]
Banshee says on 26/Apr/14
All his past girlfriends, ALL of them, say clearly that "they want a man that would be taller than them". This guy is 180 cm flat. Even in "Wolf of Wall Street", when he was measures, he was barely 6'0 with suit shoes on, which usually are around at least 1-inch-heeled.
Joe says on 25/Apr/14
Look at him with his 6 foot sometimes 5-10 listed girlfriend, they are bare feet and in flip flops and she is always at least 2" taller than him... 5-10 for dicaprio
jtm says on 25/Apr/14
he looks like he is trying to look as tall as possible with blanchett and his footwear looks questionable. i still don't think he is 5'11 or 6'0.
Dejavu says on 24/Apr/14
I think he filled out and grew after 19.
cashionf says on 24/Apr/14
I know Leo personally and he's 6'0"
avery_t says on 22/Apr/14
I walked by him twice last night in TriBeCa. He looks 6ft in sneakers at 9PM. His sneakers probably give him an inch. So, I'd say 5' 11" at night.
cole says on 21/Apr/14
Really doubt he grew 1-1.5in after the age of 19.
TheSmileyFacedBalloon says on 21/Apr/14
Rob, what do you make of this? It was taken at the What's Eating Gilbert Grape premiere, when DiCaprio was 19 years old.

[Editor Rob: looks a 5ft 10 range guy there ]
MarkyMark says on 19/Apr/14
I think he's a legit 6'0. A least 181 cm. Cate Blanchett is 174 cm, the heels she's wearing in the pic give her at least 8 cm. So she's at least 182 cm, and Leo's shoes give him 3 cm at max and he looks 3 cm taller than Blanchett.
curious says on 15/Apr/14
Rob, don't you think that Leo has the proportions of a smaller guy? Like 5'10? I'm not saying he's that tall though. Oh, and how many inches do you think his head is?
[Editor Rob: I've never thought of his proportions making him look small, but I think you can take somebody at 6ft or even 5ft 10 in single photos and get them mixed up!

His head doesn't look much more than 9 inches, it looks quite balanced (eyelevel to head equal to eyelevel to chin)]
Jed says on 15/Apr/14
His girlfriend is listed at 5'10-5'11 (5'10 by her agency) yet looks taller than him a lot of the time.
Babu says on 13/Apr/14
5 ft 11 inches
Banshee says on 6/Apr/14
Exactly, 181 cm out of bed is bang on. No way is he 6'0.
cole says on 6/Apr/14
@Seahawksfan: Exept he's standing several steps closer to the camera than Jay... Useless to argue anything.
176,2Tunman says on 5/Apr/14
Aged 19,he may very well have been 5'10.5" with 5'9 De Niro.
I would have thought 5'11.5" was fair for him but watching Blood Diamonds he could be a good 2-2.5" shorter than Honsou,like a good 6cm,possibly closer to 5'11 than 6',181 is perhaps bang on.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 5/Apr/14
I expecting for him to be towered over, but he really isn't much shorter than 6'1.5"-6'2" Jay-Z here:

He goes from looking identical with him to edging him out, but this photo looks to be the most realistic as there's likely no footwear advantage. This proves that he could be 6'0.
Banashee says on 5/Apr/14
He is 181 cm out of bed. No doubt about it, just read Cole's comment below.
Dejavu says on 1/Apr/14
He looked shorter when he was 19, like 5'10
Arch Stanton says on 29/Mar/14
Realist says on 18/Mar/14
Guys, just watch Basketball diaries, titanic and the movie with Diane KEaton, some of his early ones. He does not look more than 178 in them. He is just a little taller than DeNiro in one of them. I am damn sure he has had limb lengthening or some special lifts. This guy is making me really suspicious.

Brad Pitt is another one who could look 5'9" range in his early movies, 178 max yet being fully grown and nowadays looks nearer 6 ft too.
Arch Stanton says on 29/Mar/14
Really doesn't look 5 and a half inches taller barefoot than Winslet in Revolutionary Road on the beach.
cole says on 28/Mar/14
Honestly, giving Leo 5ft 11.5in has always seemed like a generosity to me.
I just cannot see how he'd measure that mark...

@Editor Rob: By having Oscar Isaac at 5'7.5 and now listing Mark Ruffalo at that mark as well, to me it looks like you should be edging your way towards a flat 5'11 listing for Leo. He does not look 4 inches taller than those guys, no way. He could just about pull off looking near 182 cm if Ruffalo was 173 cm, but now that he's been put down to 171 cm, the listing Leo's currently holding makes little if no sense.
[Editor Rob: 181 isn't out of the question]
PeteClone says on 25/Mar/14
All this talk of Leo really being 5'11" gives me that warm feeling inside when you find out you're taller than the current Hollywood heartthrob.
lulz says on 21/Mar/14
@Realist, Yea, Leo's got time for limb lengthening with all the movies and appearances he does every year throughout his career. You literally can't walk like a normal person for 6 months after starting such a surgery. You can see a million pictures of him in public not wearing these magical (invisible?) "special lifts" you say he has. He's also visibly lanky in Marvin's Room (the movie with Diane Keaton you mentioned)
[Editor Rob: in 50 years there may be techniques or therapy that can somehow gain you height, or surgery which has much shorter recovery period. If Sly was around in the future, every few years I'd be upgrading his height up half an inch...]

what! 5'11.5" if she's 5'8.5" he's definitely 6'0" from that photo - her heels are quite high. At best Leo should be 5'11.75" out of bed, this pic was probably taken at past midday. upgrade, Rob.

In movie wall street, he was measured in shoes as week 6f, but nowadays how many lifts a dress shoe can give you, as least 3cm for an ordinary one let alone celebrities wear customary shoes..
1.84 m 72 kg says on 9/Mar/14
1.83, in movies say that. 1.82 is improbable
Banshee says on 6/Mar/14
Inded, in "Wolf of Wall Street" he was measured 6' ( a weak one to add ) with suit shoes on. Average suit shoes have 1' heel, so indeed, Leo, yet again, proved to be no more than 180 cm in person.
DMEYER says on 3/Mar/14
blanchet should be 5 ft 11 with those on 2.5-2.6 in type if she is 5 ft 8.25-8.5 , leo looks 6 ft shoes so 5 ft 11.25 seems right since they dont look too thick

180cm, in wolf of wall street he waas measured 6ft with shoes on, never looked 6, more a 5'11 with bad posture

The final proof ( God, we've got so much evidence to suggest it already! ) that DiCaprio is no more than 180 cm tall in the morning.

@Zenit: Nice one! I haven't had the pleasure of meeting Carew in person, but I've met other Norwegian internationals whom I feel very sure about height-wise, and Carew doesn't look a single cm taller than 193 with any of them. I've met Morten Gamst Pedersen (former Blackburn-player) - he didn't seem any taller than me (180 cm), and he looks the same height as DiCaprio does with Carew in most pictures.

Fact: Carew is 6'4 at best, but got listed 6'5 when he started playing abroad. Fact: Pedersen is 5'11 at best, but got listed 6' when he started playing abroad.
This seems all too familiar, and not in a good way...

Yeah, I think at his low he is right on 5ft 11.5
Banshee says on 20/Feb/14
I think that any claim of DiCaprio standing taller than 5'11' is a joke. All the evidence suggests to the contrary.
To those people talking about 'out of bed'/'night time' height differences. As a medicine student I'll tell you something: the max height difference day/night is no more than 1.5 cm ( according to scientific data ). The average difference is 1 cm.
Thus, again, any claim for Leo at 6' is just a lie. 5'11.5 is being 'generous', while 5'11 is 'spot on'.
Tom Hanks looks taller, even now that he measures max. 5'11.5

Thanks DMeyer. You are usually pretty right on when I compare the celebs I've personally seen with your estimates. My only doubt is during interviews, etc next to Hanks which would put him lower unless Hanks himself warrants an upgrade. That being said, your account jibes with friend's accounts. Actually, the people I've known who have been in actual proximity to him usually put his height in the 6' - 6 1/2 range however they usually don't guess heights on a regular basis either.

@goose i didnt see in good conditions , but i did see him And havé seen 1000 pics of him beside people i met , i think 5'11.5 is on the money , with à chance of 5'11.25 And 11.75 i Will ne surprise of hé was 6ft or 5'11 flat , in inches 5'11.5 at worst 11.25 , 11.5 is à range tall enaugh to look 6ft-6ft1 to some people And 5'10-10.5 to some , rob has him right
Red183 says on 12/Feb/14
I don´t think he´s a 6 footer on any time.

5´11.75" right out of bed, 5´11"flat normal low, on a bad day 5´10.75".

5´11.25" would be pretty fair, 5´11.5" is generous
dmeyer says on 11/Feb/14
Morning 183-183.5cm night 181 181.5cm on a good night 5'11.5 listing Is fair

DMeyer,
I've read your accounts on Leo's height, not taking into account other posters, if you had to put a number on him in inches what would it be....thanks
dmeyer says on 11/Feb/14
Knowitall in that shot I see more 0.5-0.75in while hanks has 0.25in more shoes and his head is slightly backwards , I at think at peak hanks was max 1-1.5cm taller than Leo , now Leo look taller than him in 2013-2014 in 80% time , hanks use to be 6 ft and standing very well made him look 184cm Leo about 181.5cm and standing poorer made he look 180cm wish explain in some shots 1-1.5in diferance , now when they both stand at tallest they look very close , I have seen a interview video were Leo has a flat sneakers 0.7in type and hanks 1inchers and looked about equal in height or 1cm shorter wish make him same height I think peak Leo 5'11.5 now same and peak hanks 6ft now 11.5 , I met both they look similar within 0.5in both looked same height near me but I had 1cm shoes with Leo , so 1.5cm diferance with hanks peak maybe

DiCaprio is shorter than Tom Hanks by about an inch and a half:

Knowitall, I have been saying all along that Leo is 5-10.5 He walked right past me on level ground.

If Hanks is six feet, DiCaprio is five-ten & a half.

guys,what do you think about this: Click Here

is wearing shoes or not in this picture?
Balrog says on 9/Feb/14
A decent 5'11'' man never dips below 5'11'' (180.3cm) when I said DiCaprio is a solid 5'11'' I mean he never dips below 180.5, so I really can't see him at 5'10.5'' Mr R.
Sam says on 8/Feb/14
Someone said its doubtful Leonardo's even 6ft or close to it in the morning, in which case he'd probably be dipping below 5'11 at night which I honestly can't see as he always looked solid 5'11 range to me, so he could be 6ft or just a little over in the morning, so his heightt: 181cm
Knowitall says on 8/Feb/14

About 181cm Is lowest for him at worst 180.8cm He looks taller than 180people
dmeyer says on 7/Feb/14
I met him twice but not in good conditions 1 time He walked by me the other was standing too far
Sam says on 6/Feb/14
Sleazy posture? LOL at that word combination.
dmeyer says on 6/Feb/14
Rob could Leo be as short as legit 5'11 like 180.3-180.4cm wish Will make me 1cm taller , He does look That range with Dujardin
[Editor Rob: it is arguable yes, 181 could be his measured height though.]
dmeyer says on 6/Feb/14
If they have same footwear and considering the 186Guy dosnt stand as straight as possible it hard to ses more than 181cm on the other hand can look Just 2cm Under 183.5cm watababe , 5'11.25 Is possible 5'11-11.5
Dejavu says on 6/Feb/14
In photos, he usually appeared to be at least 5'11. Most I have seen him look is probably 6'0
DMEYER says on 5/Feb/14
i might look a hair taller than leo near a 186cm guy
Balrog says on 5/Feb/14
Good picture, Rob looks a good 2in difference there. So 180-181 I mantain my solid 5'11" guess. And also I repeat he should won the Oscar!
Skinner says on 5/Feb/14
He does look more than 180 cm in this pic
Click Here
That's probably his best physique appearance to date.
Right now, he has bad and sleazy posture, that's why it makes us visualize him to be shorter than we've thought.
DMEYER says on 3/Feb/14
so if 5 ft 11-11.5 is arguable then 5 ft 11.5-6ft is less likely
[Editor Rob: yeah I wouldn't argue more than 11.5, I mean it is worth posting this photo again: Leo and Dom.

Dom in the past has talked about this site on the radio and taken a dig at our riduclous Bruno Mars listing on twitter ;)

anyway he said on the radio he's a fraction over 6ft 1...so you can argue Leo is 180-1 with him I think.]
Goose says on 3/Feb/14
My friend is a realtor in Beverly Hills and I asked him last week if he had ever seen DeCaprio. He said he had in Barney's BH and he judged him to be his height. My friend is roughly 6 1/2 inch without shoes. Take it for what it's worth as it's a second hand account.
dmeyer says on 3/Feb/14
Rob dinner time wath is more likely for Leo 5'11.25/181cm or 5'11.5/181.5-6cm
[Editor Rob: I think it's 50/50, you can really argue 5ft 11-11.5 range]
Dejavu says on 2/Feb/14
He looks at least 5'11 in all of his photos.
DMEYER says on 2/Feb/14
i think leo is not less than 5 ft 11.25/181cm dinner time i think 5 ft 11.25 11.5 and 11.75 are all possible 5 ft 11/180.3cm is not impossible
kevin says on 2/Feb/14
i think hes between 180-181cm. 183 is too high anyway but 179 would be too low
DMEYER says on 2/Feb/14
mr r , wath shoes leo had and wath was yours and was his posture good
johnny says on 2/Feb/14
The absolut lowest he could be is a strong 5-10. But 5-11.5 sounds accurate. He's older now and has gained more weight and probably looks shorter sometimes. but back when he was a young guy he always looked pretty tall. Like in The Beach.
dmeyer says on 1/Feb/14
Rob from wath Mr r saw and the fact that you say 5'11" flat is arguable , Leo is defenerly no taller than a 181.3cm dinner like me ???? Answer
[Editor Rob: there is a fair chance he might be around 181, 179 I wouldn't want to argue that]
Mr. R says on 1/Feb/14
@Balrog Nope. I stick to my original sighting of 5-10.5 when I saw him a few weeks ago.
Dural says on 31/Jan/14
He's shorter than Hanks, 183cm is impossible dmeyer. I can see him between 5'10.25" and 5'11.25", the mugshot is reality. I'm not convinced he's taller than Bundchen, maybe on the red carpet.

nick says on 31/Jan/14
That mugshot picture is AMAZING. 6 foot in shoes.

Most likely 5'11 flat
Dmeyer says on 30/Jan/14
The somallest he could be is 5'11 1/8in like almost 181cm
Dmeyer says on 30/Jan/14
Rob i have. Hard Time seing leo at 5'10.5 , when in looks similar as hanks when in Équal posture , taller than 5'10.5 bundchen , i think 183cm is more possible than 179cm best is 181-182cm 180 and 183 are unlikely , but 179cm is impossible
[Editor Rob: I'd be very surprised if he was 179. It's probably at the lowest end of the guess range for him, sure he can look it sometimes, but more often he looks more than that.]

qartt says on 30/Jan/14
rob on the subject of mugshots, leonardo has a twelve inch head based on the photo of wolf of wall street. His eye line is at 5'6 which puts his height at 5'10 to 5'11. I am not saying he is, just the photo would indicate that. His head in reality will be 9 and 1/2 inches not 12. You need to subtract an inch from the top and an inch from the bottom.
[Editor Rob: remember your head is in front of the height chart so it will look amplified in size if you are using the lines behind.

His head is very average size.]
Balrog says on 30/Jan/14
Mr R any chance on full 5'11". 179cm seems a bit too low.
Mr. R says on 29/Jan/14
Stood right next to him. 5-10.5
Jordan says on 29/Jan/14
How could a Guy who is 5'11.5 TOPS in a mug shot, in shoes ( he was all Dressed up), somehow be 6 feet in height? He is lucky to be 5'10.75"!
Arch Stanton says on 29/Jan/14
@Goose

Because it looks exactly what he's measure if stood next to one. If his head was near the 6'4" mark then you'd know it was fudged.
Balrog says on 28/Jan/14
Solid 5'11" guy. 180cm. He deserves the Oscar.
Goose says on 27/Jan/14
Why would you assume the movie's mugshot is accurate? I've seen all kinds of mugshots in movies where they make the actor look taller by fudging the measurement scale. The only mugshot height I would trust would be a real one.
Realist says on 27/Jan/14
DiCaprio-178
Damon-174-175
Wahlberg-170
Sam says on 27/Jan/14
Mel's head is so much closer to the camera that it's hard to tell the comparison. Gibson can look 5'10" easily with posture and shoes, so DiCaprio should be a solid inch taller looking.
NJP says on 27/Jan/14
Stood on the red carpet with him at Leicester Square for Revolutionary Road and shook hands with him in the foyer and had the opportunity to exchange a few words. I'm 179cm in the evening or a little over 5'10". I never felt that he was any taller than me, both of us in dress shoes. I guess that if he stood to attention he'd be around the 5'11" mark but only just.
NJP says on 27/Jan/14
Seahawksfan says on 9/Jan/14
Unless there's a major footwear advantage, he looks a little taller than 6 feet by 6'2" Morgan Freeman:

Click Here

The photograph was taken at a low angle, taken at around upper chest height, giving the impression that the difference in height is less than it is. While it appears that Leo's eyes are level with Morgan's nose, the reality is that his eye level is probably closer to Morgans top lip.
dmeyer says on 26/Jan/14
i think 5 ft 11.5 is closer than 5 ft 11

Ok, not the best angle, but clearly Mel and Leo are closer in height. Leo seems to be looking Mel almost in the eye.

Arch Stanton says on 22/Jan/14
I saw his footwear in the film Cole and it looked normal. If you think he'd be wearing lifts just for that... He looks 6'0.25-5" in shoes to me, barefoot I'd say 5'11.25-5, this is about right.
Sam says on 21/Jan/14
Ah, Day-Lewis is at least 6'1" with good posture.
Sam says on 20/Jan/14
In The Wolf of Wall Street, he could look from 5'11" to six foot. Close to Kyle Chandler's height but he did not seem taller than Jon Bernthal for sure.
Adrian says on 19/Jan/14
The reason why Leo looked tall in Wolf of Wall St is because he was acting along side a short Jonah Hill. Same thing happened in 21 Jump Street with Channing Tatum; where he looked massive next to Jonah Hill.

Lets go back to Gangs of New York; where Leo starred opposite a genuine 6 footer; Daniel Day-Lewis. And now compare the height!

Leo is no 6 footer.

No more than 179cm in the morning for Mr Dicaprio.
Red183 says on 19/Jan/14
Rob wouldn´t 5´11.25" (181cm) be simply perfect for this one?
[Editor Rob: anywhere from 5ft 11-11.5 is very arguable]
Red183 says on 19/Jan/14
Looks 6´0.25" in the mugshot, even his hair is under 6´1"(185).

Taking away the footwear he looks 5´11"-5´11.25"
cole says on 19/Jan/14
It would have been better if Leo got a similar mugshot to Jon Bernthal: Click Here
cole says on 19/Jan/14
Well for one he's not standing right up against the height-markers and the 6ft 1 mark is well over the top of his hair, so he does not look 185. The top of his head wouldn't go up to the very top of his hair, it would obivously be higher than the 5'11 mark, maybe near the 6ft mark and perhaps a tiny shade over if he stood his tallest. BUT we don't know what kind of footwear he's wearing, so it basically means very little.

There could be so many things affecting what we see. He could be closer to the camera than what the markers are (as well as not standing right next to them), he could be wearing big shoes, we don't know. They shoot each scene with a purpose, how tall Leo's character seems in a mugshot we see for mere seconds, in a movie, and when there are so many things we don't know or can't see, it's frankly a rather pointless argument.
jtm says on 19/Jan/14
5'11 in shoes
Jordan says on 19/Jan/14
He only hits 6 foot in the mug shot because of Hair and shoes. Take that away he is a lucky man to be even 5'11. Look at the pic posted by Aiden. IDK how someone can look at a man that is not over 6 foot with his hair and shoes on and still claims he is a solid 6 foot.
6-4 says on 18/Jan/14
Take a good look, he is 185 in The WOLF's mugshot with shoes. No way he is under 5ft11 (you shorties :)) Why is so hard to except, that he is 5.11.5??
Dmeyer says on 18/Jan/14
Nothing under 6'0.25-0.5in shoes on , i was 5'11.8-11.9in with à 1cm trainer hé was à haïr taller in normal sneakers 2.5cm type , defenetly 6'0+ shoes on , Will hit 6'1 in big footwear 1.4-1.5in
cole says on 18/Jan/14
@Arch Stanton: You have absolutely no idea what kind of footwear he was wearing in the mugshot. It's all speculation, no need to get angry.

This is your opinion, one that you have every right to have, but I've got to say: if you honestly believe the top of his head is anywhere near the top of his hair, you may be the one who needs glasses. It's a little higher than the line drawn in the first post, sure, but it's obviously nowhere near 6'0.5 - 6'1 range, no chance.

Maybe he just about scrapes the 6ft mark, maybe he would reach a tiny fraction above 6ft if stood as tall as possible. But again, it's speculation because we have no way of knowing what kind of footwear he's wearing in that shot.

I maintain my 5'11 estimate (will never agree with 5'11.5 +) - 5'11.25 is not outragously impossible (although I wouldn't argue 5'11.25 as his low), maybe he could be around that height early in the day, but more than likely he dips a little under 180 cm in the evening, near enough 5'11 flat to claim 5'10.75 - 5'11 as his low.
Arch Stanton says on 18/Jan/14
Am I the only one who thinks he looks 184 in shoes in the mugshot and that without he's likely 5'11.25-5 as listed here? Jeez.
Arch Stanton says on 18/Jan/14
LOL you're undercutting his height with the line!!! His skull mark is actually near the top of his hair because he has a side partin and the hair is gelled against his scalp.
Arch Stanton says on 18/Jan/14
Fellas you're wrong, watch the film and you'll see that this talk of him only being 5'11.5 in shoes is nonsense.
Arch Stanton says on 18/Jan/14
@Power you're wrong dude, you need glasses!! Towards the end of Wolf of Wall Street he is stood by the height chart for his mug shot and he's BANG ON between 6'0 and 6'1" in shoes. 5'11.5" is absolutely spot on.
Seahawksfan says on 17/Jan/14
He grew a few inches after 21 since he was shorter than Johnny Depp (5'9") in What's Eating Gilbert Grape and is taller than him now. By Tobey Maguire who I feel is 5'8" and not 5'7.5" (he's 2.5 inches shorter than James Franco whose 5'10.5"):

Click Here

The footwear is visible as well, and Leonardo DiCaprio isn't even in his best posture. 5'11.5/182 CM is my bet.
cole says on 17/Jan/14
@Highland: Marsden rarely looks 5'10. He was noticably shorter than the 5'10 Jesse Tyler Ferguson on 'Modern Family' and looked barely taller than Mark Wahlberg in '2 Guns', he was also around the same height as Katherine Heigl in '27 Dresses'. He's a 5'9 flat guy in my opinion, 5'9.25 at most. It's only for a very brief moment DiCaprio is next to him, so it's not much to go by. I'd imagine Leo would look roughly the same with Marsden as 5'11 Josh Radnor did - 1.5-2in zone taller.
Highland says on 17/Jan/14
Check the video below, we can see him standing in the same angel with james marsden who is a solid 5ft10 (178). And Leo clearly has a little bit more height (So we can rule out anything below 179).

I think the author is pretty much spot on

Guest1985 says on 16/Jan/14
I met him in 2006 and he looked about 6'1 to 6'2 in flip flops. He has a gigantic head so that may have skewed his height a little. Met Brad Pitt as well and he seemed a like 5'10-5'11 (normal sized head).

Aiden says on 15/Jan/14
@Diogo, How does it prove he's 6 feet tall? The mugshot scene (Click Here) shows him at 5'11 (most likely in shoes). If he's not standing too straight, he might still measure 5'11 barefoot but that's about the absolute most I can imagine.
As for the pictures from the 2014 Golden Globes with 6ft 0.5in listed Bradley Cooper, he looks somewhere between 5'10 and maybe 5'11.

Rob, what's your take on Leo? Perhaps he's not quite 182cm but 179/180 cm?
[Editor Rob: Leo I think can be anywhere 5ft 11-11.5, above that I'd rule out. Below it? I think I'd be surprised if he dipped under 5ft 11.]

Leo seems taller in our eyes because he is so thin. He and Jonah Hill walked right past me on solid ground last month at WoWS screening. Leo was exactly one inch shorter than me. 5-10.5

we can rule out anything under 180cm or over 183cm ?
cole says on 12/Jan/14
@Seahawksfan: That's a spoof-mugshot, and has no context with the Wolf of Wall Street-mugshot... It also seems digitally added. The picture with Morgan Freeman is also completely useless to estimate Leo - you can't see their feet, he's standing in front of the camera and Freeman is in the background...
Mugahot says on 11/Jan/14
Thw mugshot is yet another proof he is nowhere near 6' mark. Too much evidence suggesting he is 5'10 - Gisele Bundchen who at 5'11 said her husband should be taller than she is ( and he wasnt ), he was visibly shorter than Tom Hanks in Catch me if
You Can movie, now this mugshot pic ( you always wear shoea for those as you wear the rest of your clothes ). 5'11 in the morning is plausible so he could claim that ( since you always claim your highest height in the documents, not the lowest ).
Seahawksfan says on 11/Jan/14

There's a better angling of his mugshot. Why does he stand taller than six feet by Morgan Freeman if he's just a hair under 5'11 though?
cole says on 10/Jan/14
What's your take on the mugshot, Rob?

I'm think 5'11 flat at best barefoot.
[Editor Rob: it can depend, some people might stand near their measured height, but others could always be not standing as though being measured and drop 2cm]
Jack Daniels says on 10/Jan/14
I saw this mugshot scene quickly in cinema, I saw Leo at 6ft, but no the top of his head is at 5'11", maybe 5'11.25". Spassiba Aiden! Question is: with or without shoes?

5ft11 flat
Aiden says on 9/Jan/14

The top of his head reaches 5'11, assuming he wore shoes, that would put Leo at 5'10.

probably wearing with gore.
cole says on 9/Jan/14
@Jack & Jack D: Thanks! Al Gore I've heard about, but never seen his face!

I did a quick search for Al Gore with Tommy Lee Jones and I have to say they looked close. Tommy to me has looked 182 cm or under for a while, maybe he was 182 in the pics with Gore (image-search Al Gore and Tommy Lee Jones). Gore looked maybe a fraction taller, but it was close, so 6ft flat is probably more accurate than 6'0.5 for him. Leo appeared an inch or so shorter in other pics with him (as you say) for sure, so 180 cm range is again what he can look.
Brah says on 8/Jan/14
That's Al Gore. Listed 6'0.5" on celebheights
Jack Daniels says on 8/Jan/14
Hi Cole, the guy next to Leo is Al Gore, who was supposed to be 6'1" in his younger days, but now probably 6' or under. But there are other photos with Al Gore, where Leo appears to be one inch smaller.
