5 foot 8.5 to 9

He always looks shorter than George Clooney whos around 179cm so id guess him 176-177cm.
The Truth says on 8/Oct/14
Matt Damon is 5'9".
Vibram says on 5/Oct/14
He is 176cm at daybreak
Carter says on 29/Sep/14
A guy I work with said he walked right by Matt in a gym and said he was "a couple of inches shorter than me...but really jacked....solid with big shoulders, etc." He also said he gave off a kind of "approach with caution" presence because of his very muscular build. And my buddy claims 6 feet even, but is really a bit under. So, my guess is that five-ten for Matt is a tiny bit generous...and that he's really around 5'9.5. I just saw him in that Liberace movie too...and he looks pretty tall in the scene by the pool. Legs seem way too long for someone under five-nine.
SAK says on 20/Sep/14
It difficult to give a estimate for this guy. 177cm seems a good bet. But Damons has stumpy building so will appear short.
Pete says on 18/Sep/14
Yeah, he does look like 5ft 10 but that's because of his footwear. To me, Matt has always seemed to be about 5'8. If he really was 5'10 he'd look (at least) 6 ft because he's always wearing massive boots and/or lifts.
Arch Stanton says on 14/Sep/14
He can look 5'9" range but I think he'd be near 5 ft 10. The big prominent toothy grin is at least explainable though, both his parents have a particularly wider grin and wide teeth! Click Here Click Here
blink says on 11/Sep/14
He does not look 5'10 like Kevin Bacon. I would say he's in the 5'9 range
true33 says on 9/Sep/14
What is wrong with some people here? Is like you need him to be tall. Damon is about 5.8 1/2. He is the farthest from tall than u can get. Pitt has 3 inches on him. Watch the Informant and tell me he is 5 10
Clay says on 8/Sep/14
Rob's 5'10'' is too high, as always Viper's 5'8'' flat is too low. He's 5'9'' evening guy.
Julian says on 7/Sep/14
I agree with @evil; he does look 5' 9.25" or 176 cm to me as well.
cole says on 29/Aug/14
@truth: Yeah, he looks like he could measure right between those marks (176 and 177). 176,5 cm - 5ft 9.5in.
Wouldn't completely rule out 177 cm flat though (5'9.75), but I can't see him pushing 178 cm at his low, no way.
truth says on 28/Aug/14
yeah something like 176-177cm range is most beleivable (he would measure a few mm above 176cm but a few mm below 177cm).
The Horse of FUNK says on 26/Aug/14
I get the feeling his recent claim of 5'10.5" is probably a morning measurement, hence why he's only now starting to claim it. I've always pegged him to be a weak 5'10", like 5'9.5" - 5'9.75", and that would corroborate with my guesstimate.

He's just got a very, very stocky build; very wide bone structure. And it's true, when people get wider or fatter, the shorter it makes them look.
Micky says on 26/Aug/14

Recently claimed 5'10.5, maybe 5'9.5 flat and around the 5'10.5 range footwear
5'9.5 flat and just rounds it to 5'10
5'10.5 in footwear
evil says on 24/Aug/14
looks like he is 176cm to me
cole says on 23/Aug/14
@Editor Rob: How tall do your recon Neill Blomkamp is, about the same as Sharlto - 5'11.5? You can find shots where Matt looks 2in shorter than him (he also looks 2in shorter than Sharlto in most pics for that matter): Click Here Note how much shorter Matt's legs is compared to Neill's in the pic you posted and in this one... Matt seems to be wearing lifts.
5'9.5 is a fair listing, I wouldn't go much higher than that. He's obviously taller than just 5'8, but he's never a solid 5'10 guy.
[Editor Rob: it is quite possible he's a fraction over 5ft 11 yeah]
Clay says on 23/Aug/14
5'7-5'8 is hate-crimeish, but I would expect nothing less from some trolls that visit here. He's in that 5'9-5'10 territory.
jtm says on 15/Aug/14
he had a footwear advantage and was still 5 inches shorter than affleck. most poeple would agree that affleck isn't taller than 6'2 but even if he is the 6'2.5 listed here that is still not enough to make damon 5'10.
Arch Stanton says on 15/Aug/14
Got a good look at him in Green Zone last night next to Brendan Gleeson and the 5'7-5'8" claims are really silly. Yes, at times he can give a 5'8"-5'9" impression because he's a stocky guy but he honestly looked around 5 ft 10. I could buy 177 but I really think he's actually near this.
lee says on 15/Aug/14
5'7 god what trolls some people are, at worst he might be 5'9.5, Good actor
groundedtv says on 14/Aug/14
Yes He is 5'7" as i worked on a movie with him and same height as me - I have to say also he is a really nice guy, no star diva , really nice to all crew
wells says on 14/Aug/14
He is NOT 5'10. I stood right nest to this guy on the subway. We got off at the same stop. W.23 St. He was in sneakers and he came up to my neck. I am 5'11. And when he exited he was on tip toes. I couldn't believe it. He is 5'7 tops!
aidan says on 5/Aug/14
His height is 5'10". What is his weight in the bourne identity??
TJE says on 29/Jul/14
*No more than a centimeter
TJE says on 28/Jul/14
He's got a short torso and movies rarely show his legs, so he can seem shorter. He could be 5'10 flat at lunch time and drop a few millimeters by nighttime. He's a good example of a weak 5'10.

Here's a good pic of him with Ben Affleck:

I think Matt has thicker footwear, more than a centimeter though.
176,2Tunman says on 4/Jul/14
@Rhonda
177,8 is exactly a flat 5'10 so it's still possible.He could look that with 5'8 Cecile de France but it's hard to give height to the mm.I'm almost sure he wouldn't hit the 178 mark at his lowest but could be near it though.How much near is the question.177 to 177,8 is more likely than 178 to 178,5 anyways.
Josh says on 4/Jul/14
Matt Damon is definitely 5'10". While watching The Bourne Identity I noticed that when he's next to actress Franka Potente he's like one inch taller than her, and she's listed as 5'9"
nickname1 says on 17/Jun/14
177.5, not a full 5 10 but pretty darn close
Meltdown says on 15/Jun/14
The very first several comments I think were on point.

Most Hollywood types add 1 to 1.5 inches to their "official" heights for their reputation. Matt Damon might be a weak 5'9, but he has the body of a 5'7.5 guy and a slightly larger head. I'd say 174-175 cm. I know a guy with the exact same body proportions and he was a good inch shorter than me. I am 5'10 morning, 5'9.25 night.
Rhonda says on 10/Jun/14
176,2Tunman said
Again 5'10 is possible but the more I see the more I'm convinced he's rather 177 than 78.=======How about 177.8cm? I am thinking 177.8cm could be his height and it is not quite the 178cm but under it by 2mm. I think this could be the height he is. You with me?
Daniel says on 8/Jun/14
This whole :I saw his height in a passport in a movie or anything like that" does not mean much....In the movie Sudden Death, there is a screen shot of Van Damme's information which show him as 5"11...obviously not accurate
the shredder says on 28/May/14
The " He is shorter than Clooney/Pitt , he has to be 5'8 " argument is the lamest , it means nothing because their heights vary and Matt at most likely 5'9.5 is shorter than both to begin with. He is not Rob's height.
176,2Tunman says on 27/May/14
Rob,in Monuments Men,he seemed a little shorter than Clooney like 0.75".You have Clooney at 5'10.75 and he was definitely 5'10.5-10.75 in his heydays but I think he's likely to be closer to 5'10 than 11 today somewhere between 5'10.25 and 10.5 so Damon rather 5'9.5-9.75.
Again 5'10 is possible but the more I see the more I'm convinced he's rather 177 than 78.
hammer says on 25/May/14
He's 5' 8" at most. Look at any movie he's in with Pitt and Clooney who are both DEFINITELY under 6 ft. They both have at least 2-3 inches on him. He is a little man.
RisingForce says on 25/May/14
Has to be taller than just 5'9", imo since he usually looks it and is consistently taller than guys thought to be about 5'9" themselves. Look at the picture at the top of the Heath Ledger page, looks unlikely he has lifts yet looks about 5'10" if Heath was 6'1", though did look more 5'9"-5'9.5" in a couple of other pics from that day in all fairness. I think 5'10" possible, but he also could have taken his recent claim in shoes and simply rounded up for his initial, lower claim.
nick says on 16/May/14
at one part in The Bourne Identity it said this,about jason bourne:

Height:5'9"

Weight:165

Hair:Light brown

Eyes:blue


is this true about matt damon?
the shredder says on 12/May/14
He might not be 5 '10 but he is not 5'8 also.
Brad says on 10/May/14
The short guy with Clooney & Pitt in every Ocean's film. He isn't 5' 10".
Dmeyer says on 1/May/14
This Guy CAN look Anywere 177-179cm
Hypado says on 30/Apr/14
Ben Afleck - 189cm
Matt Damon - 177cm
RisingForce says on 30/Apr/14
Thanks, Lorne, appreciate it. SAK, I never said a full 5'11", I said he can look near it, as far as examples, well, if Ben Affleck is really 6'2.5", then as I said, I usually see 4" between the two such as here where I see 4" max. Click Here He actually looks 5'11" there to me if Affleck is 6'2.5", and Affleck is at least 6'2" so he's passing for his 5'10.5" claim there at worst. Damon could also look 5'10.5"-5'11" range if Norton is really 6 foot, looked similar to Brad Pitt in Rome in 2004 and Pitt is minimum 5'10.5", max 5'11", imo and there was a series of full body pics where I'm not sure I saw a full 2 inch difference with 6 foot Tom Hanks, though Hanks was probably dropping posture. Plus, Damon can look more than just an inch taller than 5-9ish Andy Garcia at times, imo.

Don't get me wrong, I don't actually think Damon is that tall. I think about 5'10" is a good guess, but certainly no more and 5'9.5" is also possible, but unless the listings on this site are noticeably off, I maintain that he can look near 5'11" at times, and those are the examples when I think he has.
Sam says on 30/Apr/14
Perhaps in his Jason Bourne boots, Damon hits 5'10.5", although at times he can pull off seeming 5'10" barefoot, but often looks a smidge under rather than over that mark.
Damon says on 29/Apr/14
Click Here Here's the link to one of his 5'10.5 claims about halfway through the video. I think the claim would work better if Ben Affleck were 6'3! But, I think Ben Affleck is 6'2.5, and the vid shows a decent amount of difference. Matt's eyeline seems to be just below Ben's lips. I would say 5'9.75-5'10 is a good shout. But, I that's assuming normal footwear from both parties
Lorne says on 25/Apr/14
I must say Risingforce, I am agreeing with a lot of your posts lately and they are nice and detailed. Just giving you a shout-out I guess!!!
jtm says on 25/Apr/14
3 inches shorter than alec baldwin, 2 or at least 1.5 shorter than anthony mackie, and over 4 inches shorter than bill murray. i could go on and on. he is not 5'10 or even close to it.
SAK says on 25/Apr/14
RisingForce says: Damon generally looks about 5'10", and can look close to 5'11"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sorry when has he ever looked 5f11. I have never seen him look 5f11. When I see him he looks below average or average (at best). To me he looks anywhere between 176-178cm. So 177cm for would be a good bet imo.
the shredder says on 25/Apr/14
I can't see 5 '8 for him or Gibson
RisingForce says on 24/Apr/14
Damon generally looks about 5'10", and can look close to 5'11", which is strange because I don't suspect he's a lift wearer, except for full body pics taken in Rome in 2004 where his shoes looked fairly bulky, his legs looked longer than usual and he looked about the same height as Brad Pitt who at other times has 2 inches on Damon, though Pitt often looks about 6 feet. The Pitt-Clooney-Damon comparisons are the one thing that makes me a bit skeptical about 5'10" because Pitt is clearly the tallest of the 3 and minimum 5'10.5", but no taller than 5'11" based on his early claim. When Clooney and Damon stand together you can see that he's only slightly taller than Damon, though he has the proportions of a taller man. Damon has relatively short legs and a fairly stocky frame which make him appear shorter, but there's no chance he's 5'8" as some think, just look at him next to guys around 5'8". The height difference with Michael Douglas could vary at the Emmys and premieres, but it was always at least an inch, and often 2 inches. Similarly, he consistently looked an inch and a half to 2 inches taller than Robert De Niro, and always looks a couple of inches taller than Mark Wahlberg. Most importantly, he's consistently taller than 5'9" range guys like Andy Garcia, Jason Patric and Casey Affleck to name a few. He also looks about 4 inches shorter than Ben Affleck rather than 5.

I use to think 5'9.5" was the best guess, but now I think that's his minimum and this listing is good. 5'10.5" is probably his morning height or possibly shoes height.
Mitch says on 23/Apr/14
Rob, Damon can't be over 5'10", he's one of those celebrities that places to much emphasize on his height. Also, the doctor said I'm 5'11" and that was barefoot, but then I was measured at 6' with shoes on... Which do I say when people ask me? I'm just asking because people have told me I look anywhere from 5'10" all the way up to 6'2" because I'm so skinny. And I'm tired of saying 5'11 and people responding, "No you're at least 6'!" Or vice versa.
[Editor Rob: apparently our former GotoGuy on this site had an in depth conversation on their heights and they agreed that Matt had to be over 5ft 10 and near 5ft 11, and that of course the GotoGuy was 5ft 8....I suppose it was a mutually beneficial agreement of sorts! If you add an inch, then I can add one too!]
SAK says on 10/Apr/14
I have seen quite a few films of his lately. He never seems to look a full 5f10/178cm though. I would peg him between 176-177cm. I think 177cm would be a better listing for him.
Shell says on 9/Apr/14
I saw Damon in Vegas while they were filming the first oceans movie. I was shocked at how small he looked, no way he is 5 ft 10 in , he didn't even look 5 ft 9 in. Maybe 5 ft 8 in, I'm 5 ft 9 in tall and I was westing flat shoes and he was not as tall as me. My friends saw many of the actors from that movie the week we were there and we were all surprised at how much shorter they all looked in real life.
AJ says on 5/Apr/14
In stuck on you looks about the same height as greg kinnear, a quarter inch taller at max. I think 177cm is better than 178.
SaveUsY2J says on 4/Apr/14
I'm with Shredder on this one. He doesn't look a full 5'10 but never looks as low as 5'8" either.
lelman says on 3/Apr/14
@JamesB it's obviously a joke, the whole thing is them ripping it out of each other as a joke. Although, compared to Ben Affleck, Damon IS short.
chrisssss says on 3/Apr/14
In the bourne movies, he was listed 5'9(175cm) in his passport, i'd say he's that height, cuz jimmy kimmel ISNO TALLER THAN 180CM and looks 2 inches taller, so 5'9 for damon
the shredder says on 27/Mar/14
5'9.5 , not 5'10 not 5'8
Dejavu says on 26/Mar/14
The tallest he can be is 178cm. I think he is inbetween 5'9 and 5'10
Brad says on 20/Mar/14
Now claiming 5' 10.5". This guy is a clown. He gets owned by Clooney & Pitt in every Oceans film with ease.
jtm says on 19/Mar/14
5'8 range. look at him next to bill murray.
Realist says on 18/Mar/14
About an inch taller than Walhberg. Comments like that of affleck should be taken with a pinch of salt. They think a 5'6 guy is a 5'8 guy. They're estimation is about 2 inches more always. Affleck is so big that anyone would feel small in front of him.
James B says on 14/Mar/14
Ben Affleck says Damon is small

FM says on 13/Mar/14
He definitely wears some padded footwear. That's how he goes from this:
Click Here

To this:
Click Here

At times he looks just shy of 5'11.5" Kimmel, at other times he looks a full two inches shorter.

The passport pic below from The Bourne Identity I think is pretty accurate - I can see him at 5'9" and wears big footwear. Although, in Pineapple Express the police readout has Seth Rogen at 5'9", so heights listed in movies should be taken with a grain of salt. I do think, however, that he's about an 1.5" shorter than George Clooney.

5'9"
Tape Measure says on 12/Mar/14
He looks 5' 9.5" with Ben Affleck:

the shredder says on 11/Mar/14
5'10 1/2 and 5'8 are nuts , a strong 5'9 at worst , but under 5'10.
Sean says on 3/Mar/14
[The good thing though...if you are old, have lost height and then pass away, you actually end up growing back to your peak on celebheights!] That is too funny!
[Editor Rob: Arnie by age 80 will be praying for the end, he may end up six feet under, but he'll spend an eternity at over six feet on celebheights!]
176,2Tunman says on 3/Mar/14
Rob,if we consider than Dicaprio is maybe a little closer to 5'11 than 6' like 181 perhaps Damon is more likely 176.5-77?In the most reliable scenes of The Departed he looked at least a good 4 cm shorter than Dicaprio.I think he dips a little under 5'10 more 177 than 178 in my opinion,perhaps his 5'10.5 is first thing out of bed,or evening height with standard 0.75-1" shoes?
[Editor Rob: dicaprio maybe wore lifts in films we didn't expect? I know for Aviator he had them, but who knows what other films?]
StopHijackingMyNick says on 2/Mar/14
peak still 5ft9.5
Paul177 says on 1/Mar/14
Rob, what do you see between him and Don Cheadle? I see 2 inches max.
[Editor Rob: they can look sometimes 2 inches, sometimes near 3 inches difference!]
Realist says on 1/Mar/14
174-175 peaking.
Dural says on 26/Feb/14
@MD
I said I see an inch and a half difference, not only half-an-inch. The second pic they are barefoot and it's a full body shot, that's why it's a decent pic. The third pic not so much, I admit.

@StopHijackingMyNick

Don's eyes are exactly at the tip of Matt's nose, not under his nose. Damon has a very small nose not to forget. At the very max it's a 2inch difference, but that's generous. Cheadle is listed 5'7.5" which is Rob's opinion. My guess is 5'7" for Cheadle and a weak 5'9" for Damon.
MD says on 25/Feb/14
You've got to be kidding me (and that's just on the one half-way decent pic at the end, Dural, if you only see half-an-inch difference, there. The first picture they are all out of step with one another, and the second pic you can't tell anything.
Freddy says on 24/Feb/14
big lol at the 5'10.5 claim^^
first of all a legit 5'10.5 (179cm) man in hollywood, would just claim 5'11 since its almost the same height, but 180cm sounds just so much better...damon on the other hand cant go that high because he knows nobody would buy it then

...secondly, c'mon the man can be lucky if he pulls off a weak 5'10 on a good day....5'9.5 is my bet
StopHijackingMyNick says on 24/Feb/14
Dural in first two pics he looks roughly 2 inches taller, in the last one 3 inches (must be the camera angles). Don Cheadle is 5ft7.5, Matt Damon is clearly about 5ft9.5. Dons eyes in the first pic come roughly under his nose, that is 2.5 inches, take into account his bad posture he would be 2 inches taller still. In the second pic Matt is stomping a bit, Don is standing straight and it still looks 1.5-2 inches, he would be 2+ inches taller standing straight. Last pic is a pretty bad pic, so we can exclude that one for analysing.
jtm says on 24/Feb/14
cheadle is now listed at 5'7.5(that is still questionable) and damon certainly doesn't look 2.5 taller.
Sam says on 24/Feb/14
He can look from 1.5 to 2 inches taller than 5'7.5" Don Cheadle, IMO. This supports that he might be around 5'9.5", at least after the morning.
Dural says on 23/Feb/14
He's no more than an inch and a half taller than 5'7"ish Don Cheadle. How do you explain 5'10"+ or even 5'9.5"?

JC says on 22/Feb/14
I kinda believe he would be 5'10 1/2 sometimes I claim 5'9 sometimes 5'9 1/2 and sometimes 5'10 so he could be between 5'10 and 5'11
the shredder says on 21/Feb/14
5'9.5 seems perfect. Noway 5'10.5 or 5'8. The same with Mel Gibson .
Paul177 says on 18/Feb/14
Rob, didn't Matt Damon meet Matt Dawson once? Dawson is a legit 179 cm guy. It would be interesting to see how Damon measured up to him! Unless Damon had footwear advantage.
[Editor Rob: I put a link to the only photo I found of them a few weeks ago, but of course damon was nearer the camera so it wasn't of much use!]
Paul177 says on 18/Feb/14
Rob, how convinced are you that he'd be (within say half a centimetre) of 5' 10", if you measured him? If not, then I think he should be altered to 5' 9.5". My estimate: 5' 9.25" (176 cm)
[Editor Rob: 5ft 9.5-10 I think is the range you can argue for him...]
Brad says on 18/Feb/14
His 5' 10.5" claim is as bad as Wahlberg's steaming pile. He really wants to be Pitt & Clooney height, but; he's the guy shorter than them. Sorry Matt, the Bourne bricks you wore are Diesel inspired.
MD says on 17/Feb/14
Yeah, the 5'10.5" is definitely in shoes.
Pizzaman says on 16/Feb/14
Seems our Matt is becoming more sensitive about his height as well. He is always in bulky footwear, easily more than an inch, and now this new claim. While 5'10" could be seen as innocent rounding up (although 5'9" would be closest), this new claim is just a plain lie (no, I don't buy it that every actor who claims an inch too much, claims it in shoes, that is just naive). What he says about Northern Europe is just plain silly too, he is already a way above the world average, or maybe he means the white men average, but then he would still be very average (without Northern Europe) and not above it. Well, at least he knows where the tallest people live, he has that right.
Bryan says on 15/Feb/14
Matt Damon: if you take out northern europe then i'm way above average
Pizzaman says on 15/Feb/14
What is he saying in that video? Can't really hear him since he is turned. I am 5'10.5" and if you take out Northern Europe, then ...? Anyways, Affleck looks 5" taller there and I think he is 188.5, that would make Damon 176.

Anyways, seen him in the Monuments Men and as I stated on Clooney's page (see there), he looks very identical to him, maybe 1-2 cm shorter and also very similar to Blanchett, so maybe just 175 for Damon.
truth says on 15/Feb/14
5ft10.5 in normal footwear (1inch)
Dural says on 15/Feb/14
He doesn't look 5'10.5" next to Affleck, that's for sure. Weak 5'9".
Balrog says on 15/Feb/14
I know he has a stocky build but he doesn't look 5'10'', looks 5'9'' most of the time. Even in that video next to Affleck who I think is a legit 6'2'' man he looks 5'9'' range.
the shredder says on 14/Feb/14
Yep he claims 5'10 and a half so should be at the top ... I take it that is in shoes and he is 5'9.5 .

tom says on 12/Feb/14
I don't think he's quite 5'10". If you look at the pictures on Brad Pitt's page on this site, he is 2 inches shorter than him at least, and the slippers Pitt is wearing can't be giving him that much of a lift. He looks comparable to my own build - wake up 178, go to bed 176 - if not slightly shorter. 5'10" isn't a crazy claim but he looks lower to me. Compare him to somebody like Michael C Hall and he doesn't look that tall.

dicaprio was barely taller than tom hardy. he is not 5'11.5.

He doesn't seem more than 1.75-2in shorter than Dicaprio who is a good 5'11.5 maybe 5'11.25 at worst.Possibly 5'9.5-9.75 is more likely than a full 5'10?He could even look a flat 5'9 at times .Still 176 is the lowest arguable in my opinion.Most reliable figure is 177 or 5'9.75
chrissss says on 7/Feb/14
correction, the passpoart says 175cm, so then he's a solid 5'9
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't pay as great attention to that until he changes his own claim to 5ft 9, but he's been saying 5ft 10 for a while.]
Dejavu says on 6/Feb/14
176 cm is closer to the truth
truth says on 6/Feb/14
Probably 5ft9.5.
Arch Stanton says on 4/Feb/14
He's not as small as you think but his stocky build makes you think he's 5 ft 8-5'8.5!. He's definitely not 5'8" range, but a case could certainly be made for 5'9" range.
chrisssss says on 2/Feb/14
Matt damon is 176cm, and in the bourne films they listed him 5'9 on his passport

I met him at a convention for The Bourne Supremacy, and he was 5'8.50". I'm 5'6.75" and I was wearing two inch heels, so I was around 5'8.75" and he and I were the same height and he was wearing very low, converse shoes. Not much of a heel. Flat he's 5'8.50"
dmeyer says on 20/Jan/14
Jerry weintraub looks barely taller than Damon and looks 5'11 with Clooney and Pitt this guy fooled me for 6'2.5 in person 10 years ago he either lost a lot as he is old
dmeyer says on 19/Jan/14
Rob do you agree at times Damon can look very solid 5'10 like 178cm flirting with 5'10.25 of course can look 5'9.5 too
[Editor Rob: he can look 5ft 9.5-10 generally, at times any guy can look taller yeah - you can look 6ft in photos aswell. It's a shame Here that Damon wasn't side by side with matt dawson as that guy is 179 range.]
Paul177 says on 19/Jan/14
This listing ain't ever changing...
[Editor Rob: never say never...

I plan on doing this site a long time, when I'm 60 we'll be talking about whether Sly is 5ft 5 and whether a 85 year old Arnie is now the heading towards 5ft 8.

The good thing though...if you are old, have lost height and then pass away, you actually end up growing back to your peak on celebheights!]
truth says on 19/Jan/14
Clooney is 5ft9.75 to be exact, Damon is 5ft9 or 5ft9.25
Han says on 18/Jan/14
Rob, I really think you should put 5'9.5" instead, clooney just looks more than .75" taller than him in socks.
1.25" seems perfect between the two, so if Clooney is 5'10,75", Damon has to be 5'9",
Bundy says on 17/Jan/14
Damon is 5'9", Which is what 95% of the posters seem to agree with. Although there are a few crazies who think he is 5'11", lol.

CJ says on 7/Jan/14
He doesn't look like he's 5'10"... All guys round their height up when they tell somebody, as it said they told him his height himself. He's probably 5'9" or so.
phamus says on 31/Dec/13
All male celeb's publicists and studios inflate their hgt. I suppose the macho, hero roles they play wouldn't be possible by someone short? Matt Damon is not tall but in some photos he's taller than Minnie Driver others he's shorter. Next to Jimmy Kimmel he is shorter but not much, lifts no lifts who knows,but why should we care? He's a fine actor and a decent human being - 5'6" or 5'10"probably in the middle.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 25/Dec/13
179-180cm straight out of bed, I reckon.
Dmeyer is right, he doesn't fall below 177cm at night.

At worst he's a weak 5ft10
jtm says on 24/Dec/13
he would look the same height if he wasn't closer to the camera.
truth says on 24/Dec/13
Always gave a 5ft9-10 impression, 5ft9.5.
MD says on 24/Dec/13
Maybe they got deleted when Rob accidentially deleted my posts (though, they may be on Michael Douglas's page), but he is considerably more than an inch taller than Michael Douglas, which simply means Douglas is overlisted. It is certainly not an inch difference.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 23/Dec/13
Damon 177-178cm, Clooney 179-180cm, Pitt 180-181cm
Vibram says on 23/Dec/13
He is a weak 5ft9. Only looks 1 inch taller and no more than an aging Michael Douglas, listed 5ft8 now. Click Here
cole says on 22/Dec/13
Proportionally and compared to most people he just seems to come off as shorter than 5'10. He could be in the 5'9.5 range, but much over that I'm having a hard time seeing. Definitely shorter than Pitt, and probably shorter than Clooney (although they can seem similar at times, probably due to Clooney slouching a bit).

The way I see it at the moment:
Brad Pitt: 5ft 10.5in - 5ft 11in (179-180 cm range)
George Clooney: 5ft 10in - 5ft 10.5in (178-179 cm range)
Matt Damon: 5ft 9.25in - 5ft 9.75in (176-177 cm range)

Is this someting you can agree with, Rob? Surely you must be beginning to doubt this 5'10 listing for Damon?
dmeyer says on 22/Dec/13
Damon is a strong 177cm he dosnt dipp under 177cm like 5'9.75 probably wakes 179cm , not as short as 5'9.5/176.5cm , can pull of 5'10

Really, I don't know how this 5'10" is holding. There has been more than enough proof these past few months to finally get him listed more realistically.

5'9 , 5'9.5 is better than 5'10 or 5'8.5

I have a friend who's just under 6 feet who just told me he talked to Damon at a gym in L.A. He said Damon was bigger, in terms of shoulders, muscles, etc., than he expected...and also that he was a couple of inches shorter than him. This would make him around 5'9.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Nov/13
I don't know how to say this, but he looked a solid 5ft11 in Good Will Hunting like 180-181cm if Robin Williams was 5ft7/170cm

he only looks inch taller than cheadle. cheadle was 3 inches shorter than guy pearce. no way in hell damon is 5'10.
cole says on 26/Nov/13
@Paul177: I have to agree with you that Cheadle doesn't look 5'8 most of the time, especially next to Denzel Washington, in 'Flight'. Damon does look about 2-2.25in taller I'd say, so I'd go with 5'9.5 / 5'9.75 for Damon and 5'7.25 / 5'7.5 for Cheadle.

In a perfect world they'd stand within an inch or two of eachother, facing the camera, which was lined up at a perfect angle, both barefoot with equal posture, no hats, shaved heads, and standing on a perfectly straight floor. You might as well just go ahead and delete every single picture you've got with celebs so far, and re-do it in this manner, Rob! :P

He looks a solid couple of cm taller than Jason Patric to me, but it could be that Patric is only 5'9" even, which would make Damon 5'9.5"-5'10" range through the day IMO.

5'10" may be his first-thing-out-of-bed, height. But, he's the weakest 5'10" I've seen in awhile. Maybe, time to take off a quarter-inch, at least?
[Editor Rob: he may well be in the weak 5ft 10 range]

Dejavu says on 23/Oct/13
In the full body shots he is 5 inches under ben affleck. Definitely not over 5'10. I would bet that he is closer to 5'9
Arch Stanton says on 17/Oct/13
I've never seen proof that he's a lift wearer but at times he can even look 5'11" which is suspicious...
Arch Stanton says on 17/Oct/13
Actually Rhonda he looks 5'9" range in that photo! Affleck is 189cm, not 191-3 cm, he was claiming his shoe height when he said 6'3.5". I agree that Damon has to be near 5'10" but he often gives a short impression because of his stocky build. For some reason he gives off a 5'8" impression at times which he isn't.
jtm says on 14/Oct/13
maybe that's because affleck doesn't wear lifts?
Sam says on 14/Oct/13
In general Affleck looks about 4 inches taller than Damon.
Rhonda says on 13/Oct/13
The camera angle favours Ben, the backdrop word 'MOET' goes upwards favouring Ben's top of head, therefore camera angle favours Ben. I'm not saying Matt is any taller than a flat 5ft10. Im saying Ben is smaller than his 6ft3-4 claim. Their posture is the same, Ben is turned one way, Matt the other, feet one back one forward, Matt leans in to his right, his shoulder lower, Ben twists a bit, so any advantage is cancelled. The camera is closer to Ben as the angle favours him at his top of head height. Why does people exaggerate the taller guy and reduce the smaller? Clearly there would be 5-6 inches if we believe both their claims and not one photo shows this, and more if you don't buy his 5ft10 claim.
jtm says on 13/Oct/13
he is closer to the camera, better posture, and probably wearing lifts.
Rhonda says on 12/Oct/13
He has got to be 5ft10 178cm next to Ben Affleck. He makes Ben look 6ft1.
Click Here
Frank says on 7/Oct/13
I think that this height for him is not bad, perhaps 177 cms would be closer, but not shorter.
Sometimes he has bad postures and he is not slim so perhaps he looks shorter in some moments or with rare angles in camera.
He is not tall of course but he is not short neither.
truth says on 26/Sep/13
I think he is 175cm at night flat, 177/178cm morning.
heightist says on 23/Sep/13
I don't think he's 5-10 because I've never heard of a real 5-10 guy getting called short unless it was for basketball or other sports....if he's 5-10 or close to 5-10 with big shoes on that's different
heightist says on 23/Sep/13
he was shorter than justin timberlake...Click Here

if he's 5-10 justin timberlake is 6 footand justin timberlake is really 5-10 because nash who measured at 6-1 w/o shoes was taller than justin by 3 inches...matt damon can't be more than 5-8 1/2

Yes the camera angles and distances vary but those two guys are listed the exact same height yet compare their proportions. Also needless to say that Damon has a minimum inch of more footwear here.

Damon is 5'9 range proportionally imo, he simply looks too stocky for 5'10
Pascal 5 10 says on 13/Sep/13
Always strikes me as being closer to 5' 9" actually. He can look taller though. But I'd bet good money on him being below 5' 10" by the afternoon.

5' 9.25".
jtm says on 10/Sep/13
copley is more than 2 inches taller than damon even when he is not closer to the camera. damon is not 5'10 without his footwear.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Sep/13
It still baffles me that he was once listed here as 5ft10.75.
Did he claim 5ft11, Rob?
[Editor Rob: there has been a few years back one interview that put a 5ft 11 quote by him, but nearly every other has had him saying 5ft 10.]

truth179cm says on 29/Aug/13
yeah those pics are in Copleys favour. Go on Sharlto Copleys page and see the pics with him. He looks 5ft8 on this page but there he looks 5ft9 since he is equally closer to the camera. And Sharlto is more 180-181cm (no lower than that) and he looks 2 inches shorter. I would give him 175-176cm, no more.
jtm says on 28/Aug/13
looks like he forgot to wear his lifts on that day.
mlogan says on 27/Aug/13
By the pics with Sharlto Copley, 5ft 9inches may not be the case! With all things being equal, the shoes, lifts, a level ground surface etc. I think 5ft 8inches flat is accurate for Matt. Matt is really an average looking dude.
Jesiah says on 27/Aug/13
I've seen in one of the Bourne movies he was listed as 5 8, so I always thought that was his height in reality too.
shamrock says on 25/Aug/13
Flight Attendant alert : 5'10. Carried him on flight. Almost as tall as Jude Law. About the same as Brad Pitt.
mlogan says on 24/Aug/13
5' 9" flat is accurate -- that's flat. With shoes give an inch or two above that.

Pitt & Clooney always own him...he's never been 5 feet 10 in his life.

Bigpapi says on 5/Aug/13
Worked out at a local gym of mine for a summer. Defiantly in the 5 '10 range. Did not seem much shorter if he was.
cole says on 31/Jul/13
If he says 5'10 himself, he could be honest, and he could be 5'8-9 range (as 5'10 generally seems like the ideal height for 5'8 guys to claim). But let me be clear, I don't see him as a 5'8-er. I would say in the 5'9.5 - 5'10 range is what he generally looks next to fellow actors. So I wouldn't lable him as the worst liar out there.
Iceman says on 31/Jul/13
I do remember them listing Jason Bourne as 5'9" in the Bourne Identity. Damon barely looks taller then 5'8" Franka Potente when they are wearing similar footwear. I think 5'9" is a better listing for Damon. You can't base actors heights of how tall they look in movies. Heights can be easily manipulated with boxes and camera angles. Premiere photos are much better.
Yaspaa says on 28/Jul/13
I wonder why he was listed as 5'9 in Bourne?
Jones says on 22/Jul/13
@ Runt
Like it or not there are plenty of guys in the world who were blessed with height who will consider anything under 6 foot to be short. I agree it's stupid and cliche but it's true.
jtm says on 11/Jul/13
clooney and pitt are under 5'10. damon is under 5'9.
cole says on 10/Jul/13
I think his range is 176-177 cm, not the full 5'10. George Clooney is slightly taller, altough sometimes they can look even. 177-178 cm for Clooney, and 179 cm for Pitt.
Craig 177 says on 9/Jul/13
176 cm (5' 9.25"). 5' 10" really is a stretch, I must say. That's George Clooney and Jude Law territory.

damon looks like he is standing tall as possible in those pictures and might even be wearing lifts. i also think douglas might be in the 5'8 range nowadays.
Stiffelio says on 31/May/13
I'm inclined to believe Matt Damon is 5ft 10in after seeing many pictures of him next to Michael Douglas (listed 5ft 9in here) from Behind the Candelabra, both promo pics and at the red carpet. Damon is clearly at least 1 1/2 inches taller than Douglas, if not 2 inches. So if people doubt Damon's 5ft 10in, then we should downgrade Douglas.
jtm says on 31/May/13
much closer to 5'8.
Arnie98683 says on 26/May/13
The camera always makes actors look much taller than they are. Raquel Welch was working on a film in my area. I dropped by to watch. There was a short, attractive, but rather plain woman standing next to me. I turned to a guy on the other side of me and asked him, "Where is Raquel Welch?" He looked at me dumbfounded. I asked again and he muttered under his breath, "Right next to you." I was floored that she was standing right next to me. I always thought of Raquel as a very statuesque woman, but she was much, much shorter and more slender in person.

Anything over 5ft9.5 at night is absurd. 5ft10 is an ok listing if it is earlier in the day. Matt is a solid 5ft9 but 5ft10 is Brad Pitt and George Clooney area.
