Matt Damon's Height is 5ft 10in (178 cm)

American actor best known for starring as Jason Bourne in The Bourne series, and for roles in Saving Private Ryan, Good Will Hunting and The Departed. Matt himself said of his height, "I'm 5'10." in a interview and in 2014 decided to add half an inch, and now claims to be 5ft 10.5, although even once got quoted in The Sun saying about Courage Under Fire: "A doctor told me later I could have shrunk my heart permanently. I am 5ft 11in and went down to 135lbs from my usual weight, between 173lb and 176lbs. It didn't do me any good."

Comment on the Height of Matt Damon

MA said on 23/Nov/15
My girlfriend is 6'0 and I'm 5'8.5 and I look no where as short as Matt compared to Ledger.
181.5 said on 20/Nov/15
looks 5'9
Andrea said on 17/Nov/15
And that would explain why you can find pictures like these: Click Here
But i've seen many pictures of them and a couple videos, i can accept there are near 4 inches between them but certainly not over!
If you say that Matt could be 5'9.5, then you can easily argue Ben is more 6'1.5!
And, even if i might sound a bit repetitive, there's generally a greater difference between Jensen and Jared if you look at their pictures, you can't deny that!
TJE said on 16/Nov/15
Ehhh, 5'9.75 is entirely possible, but I think he would just about measure 5'10.
Andrea said on 16/Nov/15
Rob, how can you say 5'9.5 if you still think that Ben is a fraction over 6'2? The most he can look is 4 inches shorter but there are many photos where he can look just 2-3 inches shorter!
Unless you think Matt is a serial lift wearer...
Editor Rob: I think it's rare Affleck stands at his tallest beside Damon.
MD said on 16/Nov/15
With 5'11"ish Jimmy Kimmel (Damon in costume) with Kimmel at a camera angle disadvantage, quite frankly (look at their shoulders):

5'10" barefoot is too much. Maybe, just maybe, first thing out of bed, but not through most of the day.
Dee said on 15/Nov/15
If you downgraded Heath than you should downgrade this guy by atleast a quarter inch.
Fox said on 15/Nov/15
It's obvious Hes 5'9 max. 5'10 for him is nuts
Omid said on 14/Nov/15
Rob there are few, very few listings here that i don't agree with.....i know you are the expert but Damon honestly seems shorter than 178 to me,,I saw him in The Adjustment bureau, Bourne movies and Interstellar and Oceans and in none of them have I thought of him to be more than 176

My father is 176-177 and this guy looks a lot like him porportaions wise
Editor Rob: you could never find agreement with all listings. I think it is feasible you could argue 5ft 9.5 for Damon, but I also think 5ft 10 is arguable...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/15
"Matt Damon's height is 5ft 9⅞in (177.482cm)"

The 5ft10½ could have been taken very early. He usually looks at least 4½in below Affleck.
Prince said on 9/Nov/15
Matt Damon out of bed lies about his height and just before bed, also lies about his height.
5'11.50 said on 7/Nov/15
At the most 5'10.25 not higher @ Andrea it's not uncommon that the distance between a mans eyes and the top of his head to be 4.5 inches.
truth said on 7/Nov/15
I am certain that he is no taller than 5ft9in. My best estimate is 5ft 8.75in, but he could be 5ft9in.
ChubbyChecker said on 4/Nov/15
He looks shorter than 5'9, let alone 5'`10.

Hes a 5'8 guy claiming 5'10. Just as bad as a 5'10 guy claiming 6'0.
Mat 5'10.25 said on 30/Oct/15
[Editor Rob: a 1/4 inch might be possible after a hard day's acting]

Why don't you list him 5'9.75 then? He appears quite often at that mark
Andrea said on 28/Oct/15
Can't be under 5'10.25-5'10.5 if Ben Affleck is really 6'2.25... There are at most 4 inches between them! Of course you can say that everytime Matt knows he's gonna meet Ben he decides to borrow a pair of lifts from Sly... That would explain why he doesn't look under his claim with Ben!
Mat 5'10.25 said on 28/Oct/15
[Editor Rob: on a good day when he wakes up a bit later he may well be, but I think there is a chance at night he might dip under 5ft 10.]

So Rob, do you mean he could dip 1/8 of an inch, or 1/4 of an inch?
[Editor Rob: a 1/4 inch might be possible after a hard day's acting]
Prince said on 24/Oct/15
Matt Damon went from 5'11" to 5'10" and just like that grew a half inch to 5'10 1/2". Celebrities are so damn lucky, they even grow taller whenever they feel like it.
Mat 5'10.25 said on 24/Oct/15
Rob, is there a chance he is 179 cm during lunchtime?
[Editor Rob: on a good day when he wakes up a bit later he may well be, but I think there is a chance at night he might dip under 5ft 10.]
Len said on 22/Oct/15
5'10" does seem right for him, and to his credit that's his 'official height' as well... no claiming 6', like all the other 5'10" actors do.
[Editor Rob: he did creep his height up half inch, trying to go with 5ft 10.5]
Prince said on 9/Oct/15
Hey Helo! I did various stretching exercises including one called the triangle and it worked for me. I've still held on to the half inch of extra height I gained but I can't necessarily say that I will hold on to this extra height for years on end either. it is possible that I might lose the extra height in the coming months. Some people think that it's a scam when people suggest you can get taller with exercise but it's no scam. It works for some people and for others it doesn't.
Powerhouse said on 6/Oct/15
He was on The Late Late Show and side by side with James Corden in a skit. They were the same height.
MD said on 6/Oct/15
Not the best angle, but with 5'7" Michael Pena (who is actually at a footwear disadvantage, even) and 5'11.25" Sebastian Stan at a red carpet back in August for The Martian:

Click Here

5'10" just seems like such a stretch with all taht we know.
Prince said on 5/Oct/15
Matt Damon did claim 5'10" once on the David Letterman show but right before saying 5'10" seemed to pause or hesitate as if he should go with saying 5'10" as if Lettterman might not buy it.
jtm said on 5/Oct/15
he has a lot of nerve claiming to be 5'11 especially when you look at him with real 5'11 guys and i'm not talking about pitt and clooney.
Prince said on 4/Oct/15
Matt Damon could very likely be 5'9 1/2" as his real height. He might be 5'10" straight out of bed and 5'9 3/4" for a few hours but he probably stands 5'9 1/2 for the majority of the day after being a little taller for the first 4 or 5 hours of the day. He seems an inch and a half shorter than Brad Pitt.
Heylo said on 4/Oct/15
Prince, how do you know that it's permanent though? How many times a week do you do this yoga pose? Or have you stopped? I could imagine that IF you have a weak core strength, then core exercises in general could give you a slightly higher evening height but that doesn't mean that you've been growing taller, it's simply a stronger back slowing down the process of shrinking through the day.
But I don't even know if a strengthen core could slow that shrinking process down a bit, it could be broscience... do you know anything about this Rob?
[Editor Rob: working on core/back and spine stretches can have an overall effect on the discs and enable water to penetrate as much as possible the tiny areas of discs.

I believe this is a reason why I managed to get a taller out of bed height last couple of years, but 6-7 years ago was a few mm less out of bed. My evening height isn't really effected much though.]
Heylo said on 4/Oct/15
Next to 5'8 James Corden he looked slightly above 5'9 but not quite the full 5'10 he is listed at.
case closer said on 4/Oct/15
I'll give him 5ft8.5in tops out of bed in the morning.
184.3cm (Night) said on 1/Oct/15
5'9 is under average here in The Netherlands but 5'10 is still average just the lower end.
bandet said on 28/Sep/15
the dutch guy, get over yourself. He's 5ft10, that's what a 5ft10 person looks like. So now you're calling 5ft10, little.
Mind you if you're a dutch guy, then that's very valid, I suppose, what with you being the giant race
PetePro said on 26/Sep/15
Addition: On the TV show Matt Damon said his ponytail was just hair extensions. He now is back to his regular short hairstyle.
PetePro said on 26/Sep/15
Just saw Matt Damon on British TV ('The Graham Norton Show') claiming 5'10". He looked up into his long-term memory when he said this. Therefore he either believes this height to be true or he was remembering a lie. Matt then also said his good friend Ben Affleck was either 6'3" or 6'4".
However, I think Matt is significantly less; more in the 5'9" to '5' 9.5" range. His head and shoulders look very regular in size.
And now he is much leaner and less stocky looking, with I think proportional leg length. In fact he looked very fit. Especially so when considering he's almost 45.
Whatever height Graham Norton is then just add no more than 2 inches. There wasn't hardly any difference. That's assuming their shoe/boot height was very similar.
guk said on 25/Sep/15
He just claimed to be 5ft 10 on Graham Norton although he did also say Affleck was 6ft3/6ft4
Dmeyer said on 20/Sep/15
Can look Anywere 177-179cm
Prince said on 20/Sep/15
Hey Nazza! I know I did a stretching exercise called the triangle which is known to help potentially give some extra height if done correctly. There is no promise that doing this will make everyone who tries this gain extra height permanently though. It isn't a scam, it's just that some people either do the exercises incorrectly or they do it correctly but it doesn't make a difference. It does work for some people. It worked for me a little. My low height of the day barefoot used to be 5'9" and now my low height of the day barefoot is 5'9 1/2". I gained a half inch from it when I tried that exercise this past early August at the age of 33.
Nazza said on 6/Sep/15
Hey Prince,did you really manage to grow by using stretching exercises? I have been trying to work out if all the things you see on the internet are a scam or not.

Could I get in touch with you possibly to talk about what you did please? :)
The Dutch Guy said on 29/Aug/15
5'10'' for this little man is insane. 5'8.5" is the most acurate guess.

Click Here (2:47, "Matt Damon shame on you")
That lady saying suits him. hehehe
Prince said on 27/Aug/15
I got involved with stretching exercises this Summer and grew permanently by 3/4 of an inch. My low height of the day used to be 5'9 1/4" and my low height of the day is now 5'10". I'm about to turn 34 in less than 2 weeks. Jim Morrison of The Doors apparently did certain stretching exercises while in college and said he grew taller by just over an inch. Not saying that these stretching exercises will make everyone gain height in their 20's or 30's but for some people it works.
Prince said on 26/Aug/15
I don't understand why people see Matt Damon actually being 5'8". He's clearly at least 2.5 inches taller than 5'7" Robin Williams and probably 3 inches taller to be more exact. Just watch Good Will Hunting.
Bandjoe said on 23/Aug/15
Think he's the exact same height as me, i thought that too when i watched the Bourne series, and sure enough i look it up and he is around 5'10. Im 5'10.5 when i wake up and 5'9.75-5'10 after 7-12 hours of being up. Would say he probably has the same thing going on.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Aug/15
Agreed with Sam. Damon looks in 5'9.5-5'10 range. I think I'd guess him at 177cm like Colin Farrell. In some comparisons he can actually look a strong 5 ft 10. His stocky frame though does give the illusion of him being shorter though. If I didn't know his height and how he looks to others I'd have thought him 5 ft 8 or 9 too.
Prince said on 21/Aug/15
Hi Rob! Question, Why is it that if you measure yourself with just measuring tape against your back to the top of your head it ends up an inch less than when you mark the wall with measuring tape and use your finger or pencil and line up the top of your head to the measured marking on the wall? Also, when people say that you have to tuck your chin in, doesn't it make you measure taller than you really are if you stick your chin to far down?
[Editor Rob: I would always go with the measurement standing beside a wall and having an object sit against the wall while also on top of your head. This gives you a pretty good idea of how tall you really are. Holding a tape beside you should also give a good idea, as long as the person reading the tape measure is looking at the highest point of your head and then reading off the correct mark on the tape. Maybe some people who are smaller/taller misread the measurement!]
truth said on 20/Aug/15
5ft8in....5ft10in only in his dreams. Can these actors just be honest about their stupid height! He's obviously a good chunk under 5ft10in. STOP GIVING 5FT10 MEN A BAD REP. All 5ft8 men usually say they're 5ft9, but this twat lied by 2 in
Heylo said on 18/Aug/15
5'10 is a fair listing even though he could be 5'9.5 which in my opinion looks better.
Sam said on 18/Aug/15
Ali, you can't determine height by build. Damon doesn't look less than 5'9.5"-5'9.75" standing with other folks and can often pass as a somewhat weak 5'10".
Michael said on 17/Aug/15
Matt damon has very short legs?
Why this picture is very small?
Prince said on 16/Aug/15
He seems 5'10" barefoot. There's an image where he's standing next to 5'11" Brad Pitt and Brad is an inch taller. Sometimes Brad looks 2 inches taller than Damon but it's probably cause he's wearing shoes that give more height than Damon's shoes on those occasions.
Ali said on 15/Aug/15
Matt Damon is clearly below average. More like a stocky 5'8. 5'10 in his dreams.
Balrog said on 9/Aug/15
176-177cm. Looked to short next to Affleck to be 5'10''.
184.3cm (Night) said on 9/Aug/15
Nowhere near 6 foot what you on? His eye level would be around the nose of a 6 footer, look at the above pic Heath ledger looks like he was 184-185cm. 6'0.5" or 6'1 flat.
Nan said on 7/Aug/15
Close enough to six foot.
Shooting stars said on 4/Aug/15
Are these heights considered with shoes on or not? Tom Hardy for example, is 5'8 barefoot and 5'9 with shoes. Is Damon taller than Hardy?
[Editor Rob: heights are thought of as being without footwear.]
bernie said on 27/Jul/15
@MJKoP: You're getting more & more ridiculous...5'11" for Matt Damon!?? I see you're still living in a fantasy world..He looks clearly shorter than 5'10" Clonney, 95% of the voices here have him in the 5'9"-5'9.5" range.... Go to the barefoot boat shot with a 5' 7" Cheadle, even 5' 10" is a joke...Keep on dreaming...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jul/15
Damon can look either side of 5ft10
Arch Stanton said on 5/Jul/15
[Editor Rob: well it is a wig of course :)]

Seagal will be devastated. Of course his is all his own, his forehead naturally produces jet black velcro follicles ;-)
Arch Stanton said on 4/Jul/15
There's absolutely no way that ponytailed hair is his own though!! I've been growing mine back for 10 months now from shaved and it's still nowhere near that length. Even photos of him earlier this year his hair was quite short, it doesn't suddenly appear like that!
Arch Stanton said on 4/Jul/15
Rob have you seen his new ponytail? Click Here Seagal called to say he wants his ponytail back haha. you know what, I actually think he looks better with longer hair, not too sure about the dye, but he definitely looks better IMO.
[Editor Rob: well it is a wig of course :)
fred said on 28/Jun/15
lol he looked barely taller than franka potente...or however you spell her name...he's not more than 5-9...I think he's only 5-8 1/2 get real
dff said on 28/Jun/15
lol he's like 3 inches shorter than 5-11 bit
dff said on 28/Jun/15
looks not much taller than Emily Blunt ...looked 1.5 to 2 inches max

Clearly looks shorter than 5ft 10.75in George Clooney in the pictures above.

Rob do you think he could be 5'9.5 ? He's a very important celebrity so it would be good to get his height precisely and correctly.
Spencer said on 12/Jun/15
Solid 5'9
MaskDeMasque said on 12/Jun/15
He's looked like a strong 5'9 in pretty much every film ive seen him in. 176-177cm range.
Danimal said on 7/Jun/15
Closer to 5'9" imo.
Mat 5'10 said on 6/Jun/15
Rob, the chances Damon being bang on 177.8 cm are quite slim. Do you think he measures a tad under or tad over, if he is not bang on 5'10
[Editor Rob: with every listing there is always a chance of being a bit above/below, the time of day also means somebody could be if measured 9am taller than what they are listed.
Damon may well dip a little under 5ft 10...last thing I saw him in was Interstellar and I did notice he had a brief scene where he was standing beside david gyasi (see him with Me)...I certainly wouldn't have thought damon was any smaller.]
ChuckTheSchmuck said on 3/Jun/15
He must be shorter then this...he always looks somewhat short! My guess is 5'9"
JB said on 2/Jun/15
He didn't look much taller than 5'7" Emily Blunt in the Adjustment Bureau. I can believe a strong 5'9" maybe 5'9.5". Or Blunt needs a slight upgrade.
Key said on 18/May/15
In the picture with Heath Ledger, his shoes look 1 inch thinker than Ledger's. I'm gonna say a healthy 5'9
tilda said on 11/May/15
5'10 is just a joke.

he's 4 cm shoter than pitt

176cm for matt.
tbe said on 3/May/15
5'10 flat
TJE said on 28/Apr/15
If Ben Affleck's gonna be a strong 6'2, then Matt's nothing over 5'10.
James C. said on 22/Apr/15
Ben affleck slouches near matt damon so he could appear more taller then damon and the difference would make sense. I was watching the video where he calls damon short and damon is standing kinda straight and affleck is slouching. You can drop inches by slouching
lelman said on 16/Apr/15
There is no way he's 5'11", he never looks as tall as Clooney or Pitt. He is 5'10.5" at very best (he even claims that), and that's pushing it a lot.
someguy said on 15/Apr/15
I too have his exact stature, short legs i mean :( sucks, cant lie about being taller than i am lol
MJKoP said on 10/Apr/15
He's 5'11", no if's and's or butt's.
GP said on 5/Apr/15
Saw a full blown pic of Matt standing at parr with Brad .Brad is wearing regular heeled shoes while Matt seems to have a bigger neeled shoe/Brad looks the least 1.5" taller.If you take away the heel size it would give Brad 1.5-1.75" taller,So if Brad really is 5'11 barefoot,Matt is guaranteed to be between 5'9.25 to 5'9.5.Clooney seems to have between .5 to .75 " taller .So I strongly believe legitimately Matt Damon 5.9.25 Brad Pitt 5.11 George Clooney.5.10.25
Josh said on 24/Mar/15
He is a legit 5'10
nayhole said on 19/Mar/15
He's always looked shorter in movies. He looks just under 5'9
184.3cm said on 18/Mar/15
I thought he was 5'9.75 but after seeing him next to Affleck there he really does look a good 5'10 guy. More 5'10-5'10.25, has to be a lot broader than he looks as he comes off stocky alot.
Almost 5 10 said on 16/Mar/15
He is a major Hollywood star. Would be nice to get this one as accurate as possible, wouldn't it.
Almost 5 10 said on 16/Mar/15
Rob, would you consider a slight adjustment to 5' 9.75"? A bit like you did with Robbie Williams. I think it would be more accurate, don't you?
doorjar said on 11/Mar/15
Clooney isnt taller than 5'9-5-9.5
Dmeyer said on 8/Mar/15
Click Here , damon looks 5'11.5 hère Like pitt in Cubans while he has normal shoes of course looks 5'9.5-10 alot , but i think 5'10 is fair he pulls off 5'10.5-11 oftenly with impeccable posture
Andrea said on 6/Mar/15
If you say so... Unless Ben has a 5.5 inches eyelevel it is hard to believe there are 4 inches between them, let alone 4.25...
Again, there's more difference here: Click Here
Andrea said on 5/Mar/15
Rob, do you think he's standing on something or wearing lifts here?
Click Here
He looks not a mm under 5'11, if Ben is as listed! At the end of the video, Ben jokes about Matt's height saying he's short when he himself is not even 4 inches taller!
[Editor Rob: I think he looks close to 4 inches there, I don't know what they have on their feet though, that can always be the cause of height swings.]
Arch Stanton said on 2/Mar/15
In fact there is a chance Clooney could edge out Pitt barefoot.
Hypado said on 27/Feb/15
Matt Damon is 5ft 9.75in - 177 cm
CDS said on 24/Feb/15
This from ARGH just about says it all:

Watch "School Ties". He clearly looks 5'9 and he made that when he was 21 and an unknown.

Never thought this guy was 5'10", although more recently can look it on screen. I'll give him 5'9.5" max bare feet height. It's those early heights that often say it all...
Rixton said on 18/Feb/15
Its quite obvious he is no taller than 5'9. Hes never looked 5'10.

This is like Mark Wahlberg's listing of 5'8 when its obvious he looks 5'7.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Feb/15
Could be nearer 177cm in the evening.
Almost 5 10 said on 15/Feb/15
5' 10" is a fair listing though. He's not 5' 8-9". You could maybe argue a fraction shorter. But he looks 5' 10" most of the time.
Simon said on 12/Feb/15
Look at him next to Pitt and Clooney. The three of them look close in height sometimes Pitt looks noticeably taller but it becomes a guessing as to which one of them wears lifts. My guess is Pitt and Damon do that's why sometimes Pitt looks 2 inches taller and Damon equal to Pitt. I mean look at Damon next to Robin Williams, the difference looks bigger than Ledger and Damon on the pic above and they are listed at 6'1 5'10 and 5'7 the height gap's the same.
Sebastion said on 11/Feb/15
Cant beleive this 5'8 guy claims 5'11 now.
Andy said on 9/Feb/15
Rob, do you think Damon is more like a weak 5'10? Like 176,5cm (5'95) or something ?
[Editor Rob: chance he might dip under a little but I wouldn't argue he was only 5ft 9, more often than not he looks nearer the 10 than 9.]
Arch Stanton said on 2/Feb/15
Joe, I think it's time you stopped taking height literally and starting reading articles about elevator shoes!
Arch Stanton said on 2/Feb/15
Joe you've really not got a clue! Clooney would be laughing at you I'm sure if you got him and Brad barefoot together. 2 inch difference??
Dmeyer said on 2/Feb/15
If he claims 5'10 10.5 and 11 he must be solid 5'10
Joe said on 1/Feb/15
Damon is 5'9", Clooney is 5'9" too. Pitt is genuine 5'11". Clooney has long claimed that he is 5'11", and even claimed 5'11.5", sometimes even 6'0" which is real silly considering how many times he has been photographed with Brad Pitt, and Pitt has been shown to be considerably taller than Clooney. Many average sized actors have listed themselves as 5'11" in Hollywood such as Gary Oldman, Russell Crowe, Jeffrey Wright, Sylvester Stallone and numerous others.
ARGH said on 29/Jan/15
Damon is 5'9. Clooney is 5'10. Pitt is 5'11.

Watch "School Ties". He clearly looks 5'9 and he made that when he was 21 and an unknown.
Bob said on 28/Jan/15
Looking at photos the lowest you could argue for him is 5'9.75", but I think he looks 5'10" enough to keep him there.
GP said on 26/Jan/15
On screen he can look 5'9" and possibly under, but after I saw him the other day, I gotta say that I was little surprised that he was closer to 5'10". I would guess him 177-178, nothing more. Less than that is possible, but he has to wear little lifts then, which he doesn't seem one of those.
Andrea said on 24/Jan/15
Hey, i don't believe he's a big 5'10 at all! Just saying that if Rob has Ben at a solid 6'2, this guy doesn't look under 5'10...
TJE said on 23/Jan/15
Even considering Ben's advantages, I don't see any LESS than 4 inches. It's not much more of course; actually I'd say there would be 4-4.25 inches between them if Ben didn't dominate the pic. Still, I think Matt's a weak 5'10 and a shaky one at best.
jtm said on 23/Jan/15
Andrea says on 23/Jan/15
So you're basing your guess on that pic? Ben is standing closer to the camera and he's also raising his eyes a bit, still don't see more than 4 inches, even considering Matt's footwear advantage! If Ben is really 6'2.25, Matt is really no less than 5'10 and very likely near his 5'10.5 claim!!! Unless, he always wears lifts, of course...

that's not the only reason i think he is not even close to 5'10 but it doesn't matter. the majority will always believe he is 5'10 or very close to it despite many evidence he isn't.

But still a solid 1.5"shorter than Dicaprio for sure.You said yourself that Dicaprio could even be as short as 5'11.To be near his 5'10.5 claim we're assuming that Dicaprio wore lifts while Damon didn't.
The guy started at 5'10 then 5'10.5 and once claimed 5'11.I'm tending to think that the lowest claimed figure would be the closest to truth except perhaps for big guys like Cudmore or Kobe,that being said we never know how some guys could turn under stadiometer.
Matt still looks too often 5'9-10 range to be as tall as 5'10.5,my opinion is still on a weak 5'10
Andrea said on 23/Jan/15
So you're basing your guess on that pic? Ben is standing closer to the camera and he's also raising his eyes a bit, still don't see more than 4 inches, even considering Matt's footwear advantage! If Ben is really 6'2.25, Matt is really no less than 5'10 and very likely near his 5'10.5 claim!!! Unless, he always wears lifts, of course...
Tunman said on 22/Jan/15
Good pic and finally it seems there's 4"difference between them,rather 4.5"assuming Matt has footwear advantage.
Again it confirms my opinion of a weak 5'10 which is even visible with 5'11.25-11.5 Dicaprio,he looked about 1.5"shorter in The Departed
Time for a slight downgrade,he's more 177.
jtm said on 21/Jan/15
look at the pic TJE posted on july 28.
Tunman said on 20/Jan/15
lifts could be an explanation for how he looked near 5'11 next to Affleck,but with Clooney who won't be anything more than 5'10.5 possibly less he seemed a good 0.5" shorter in Monuments Men which seems fair assuming everyone had boots.
5'9.75 or 5'10 is still my opinion.
Andrea said on 19/Jan/15
jtm, post the photos you're talking about...
jtm said on 19/Jan/15
forget about those 2 full body pictures of damon looking 5 inches shorter than affleck with a footwear advantage.
Yea said on 18/Jan/15
I think he's 5'10 1/2. If he's claiming 5'10, 5'10 1/2, and 5'11. I'm measured 5'9 1/2, and I claimed 5'9, 5'9 1/2 and 5'10 at least once in my life. Depends on my mood. Plus he seems a little over 5'10
Andrea said on 18/Jan/15
There are 4 inches at most between Matt and Ben! If Ben is as listed, Matt must be pretty damn close to his 5'10.5 claim ..
carver said on 17/Jan/15
My god, the guy keeps going higher and higher, first 5'10, then 5'10 and a half now 5'11, what's next 6'2 on a good day? Trust me he's 5'9
Rey said on 14/Jan/15
He is very close to 5'8' 1/8 in flat feet. Very similar in facial features as Tom Brady.
London Boy said on 2/Jan/15
5' 10" is closer than 5' 9" or below. 5' 11" is pushing it though!
Arch Stanton said on 29/Dec/14
Yes, for some reason he screams 5 ft 8-9 but I think you can see in the above photo he's actually more like 5'10!! The worst you could really argue is 5'9.5" in a lot of comparisons.
Omid said on 25/Dec/14
To me he always seemed shorter (specially in Oceans Eleven), like 176- 177 range but you are the expert Rob, not me!
BOXOFFICEFLOP said on 23/Dec/14
why do actors height seem to change so often? It's like when they're unknown they're 5'10 and then when famous they're 5'11 or 6'0 and then years later they're back to being 5'10
Clay said on 22/Dec/14
Affleck towered Damon in ''Jay and Silent Bob''. That was when I was turned on to the fact Damon is a short guy between 5'9 and 10''.
Andrea said on 18/Dec/14
Of course he must be standing loose in some pics or it wouldn't explain why he can look only 2-3 inches taller! So you think Matt is a liftwearer too? Interesting...
[Editor Rob: there is a good chunk of hollywood who will at times wear just a small lift, the kind that gives you an extra cm and harder to spot.]
Andrea said on 17/Dec/14
Then, 5'10.5 or 5'11 is arguable for Matt? That's the minimum he is if Ben is 6'2.5...
[Editor Rob: i'm sure affleck stands loose with matt a lot of times...maybe matt even at times had small lift. ]
Andrea said on 17/Dec/14
"[Editor Rob: Jensen is above jared's eyes in person, that's what I seen and both had work boots, I would go with 4 inches, maybe for ben/matt it is also around 4.]"
In fact i said i can buy Jared being only 4.25 inches taller than Jensen but then again there's noway such a big difference between Ben and Matt! And i've seen a lot of pictures of them, it's not only those 2-3 pics you can find on the net!!! Seriously, at best, there are 4 inches between Matt and Ben... Could Matt be the height he claims? 5'10.5? I doubt, more chance he got that height from a shoe measurement...
[Editor Rob: 6ft 2.5 or 6ft 2 is arguable for Ben.]
jtm said on 17/Dec/14
5 inches shorter than affleck in 2 full body pictures despite the footwear advantage. affleck's 6'2.5 lisitng is generous but damon at 5'10 is laughable.
Andrea said on 17/Dec/14
So you answer with a simple "they can look just 4 inches"? 4 inches is the most there is between them and there's a good chance there's only 3.5 inches between them, he's never under Ben's eyebrows! As for Jensen and Jared, Jensen is around Jared's eyelevel in a lot of photos! This is not being objective, you must admit it, Rob!
[Editor Rob: Jensen is above jared's eyes in person, that's what I seen and both had work boots, I would go with 4 inches, maybe for ben/matt it is also around 4.]
Jack said on 17/Dec/14
Matt is a legit 5'9" guy

Jared and Jensen: Click Here
Ben and Matt: Click Here
Rob insists Jared is only 4-4.25 inches taller than Jensen. Ok, it is possible but now tell me, how can Ben be 4.5 inches taller than Matt? There is objectively more difference between J and J. Rob how do you explain that? Is it part of the "Inexplicable things" of this site, together with Kobe Bryant, Dave Annable, Kim Coates, etc.??? You realize there are many heights that actually don't match each other?

I agree not under strong 177cm weak 5'10
Prince said on 13/Dec/14
The shoes Heath Ledger has on probably give a half inch and Matt Damon's shoes likely give an inch. Ledger looks 3.5 inches taller in this pic. In reality he probably was 4 inches taller than him which would make Damon 5'9" barefoot. Damon is probably 5'9 1/2" out of bed and then stays 5'9 1'4" for several hours before dropping to 5'9" toward the evening.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/14
Rob, could Damon wake up close to 5ft11?
[Editor Rob: 5ft 10.75 might be possible, although if he does drop to 9.75 then he might be 5ft 10.5 out of bed...and there, his 5ft 10.5 claim is valid, he just forgot 'out of bed' as an appendage to it.]
TJE said on 11/Dec/14
What I meant was that he is probably 5'10/177.8 on the nose at lunchtime and maybe 177.4 when going to bed.
marcus said on 11/Dec/14
for the bourne movies, his passport had 175cm. matt damon is not 5'10, he's 176cm
Prince said on 5/Dec/14
Matt Damon is over 6 feet with stilts..
TJE said on 2/Dec/14
Rob, would his absolute low be like 177.3-177.4?
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't argue he was lower than around 177, you could class him as a weak 5ft 10 guy at times.]
lelman said on 1/Dec/14
Yeah looking back at that video when Ben calls him short he says he 5'10.5". I think it's pretty funny how so many 5'9-10" guys claim 5'10.5", do they like that half inch because it puts them slightly above national average? Sly, LeBlanc, Damon, Tyson. It seems like such arbitrary addition.

He looked an inch or so shorter than McCanaughey in Interstellar. I agree with most of the posters here, weak 5'10".
Joe said on 29/Nov/14
You are supposed to measure your height with shoes off in the morning, when you are slightly taller. I am 6'0.5" tall when I get out of bed, but I am 6' in the evening. This is my measurement without shoes.
Actors tend to give their heights in shoes. Athletes usually give their heights without shoes but not always.
Darren510 said on 26/Nov/14
He probably is about 5'10. Affleck is 6'2-6'2.5. They did 3 movies together, plus loads of other pics of them hanging out.Affleck really never towers Damon
@Bob said on 25/Nov/14
You're supposed to measure yourself with your shoes off barefoot on a solid floor.
Bob said on 23/Nov/14
Hey guys. I'm 6'2.75 in shoes. Would that be my height or am I supposed to measure it with shoes off?
Tim1.79 said on 20/Nov/14
@ Joe He wasn't two inches shorter than him, and McConaughey is not 5'11.5" or 182cm.
My best estimate for Damon will be 177cm
Joe said on 18/Nov/14
Matt Damon is probably 5-9, during Interstellar he stood about two inches shorter than 5'11.5" Matthew McConaughey.
Can't Stop Addicted said on 10/Nov/14
Rob, would you consider a slight adjustment to 5' 9.75"? I think people could live with that. He does appear 5' 10" but can often look noticeably shorter.
xi said on 6/Nov/14
5'9. Watch the Bourne filma and School Ties. He's average height but he was reporred 5'11 in the late 90s
One Seventy-Six said on 5/Nov/14
I think this listing is out, but only by half an inch. I think he'd measure 5' 9.5" barefoot, by the evening. Doesn't strike me as a solid 5' 10". He can look 5' 10"+ at times. But he appears below 5' 10" too often to ignore, in my opinion.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Nov/14
Watched The Departed again the other night and I was surprised how much taller Alec Baldwin looked next to him, oddly looked easily 6 ft in comparison. He made Damon look barely 5 ft 9.
Prince said on 29/Oct/14
Matt Damon at best is 5'9 1/2 barefoot. He's probably 5'9 1/4" for first few hours of the day and drops to 5'9" barefoot after standing for 5 or 6 hours.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Oct/14
Rob, could 5ft10½ be early morning for Damon?
[Editor Rob: a chance he dips a little bit shy of 5ft 10 so 5ft 10.5 morning could be a good shout.]
He - man Bran said on 26/Oct/14
Why does this site have him at 5'10"? I actually find this site very credible and accurate but this is simply wrong. We all know he is no taller than 5'9".
lelman said on 25/Oct/14
Rob, do you think it's possible he is just shy this? The amount of downgrading he gets is hard to ignore.
[Editor Rob: you can argue a 1/4 inch under this mark yes, but as low as 5ft 9 I wouldn't want to argue that.]

Carter said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 11/Sep/14
He does not look 5'10 like Kevin Bacon. I would say he's in the 5'9 range
true33 said 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 said 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 said on 7/Sep/14
I agree with @evil; he does look 5' 9.25" or 176 cm to me as well.
cole said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 26/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 said 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 said 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 said 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.

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!

His height is 5'10". What is his weight in the bourne identity??
TJE said on 29/Jul/14
*No more than a centimeter
TJE said 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 said on 4/Jul/14
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 said 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 said on 17/Jun/14
177.5, not a full 5 10 but pretty darn close
Meltdown said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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.

RisingForce said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 25/Apr/14
I can't see 5 '8 for him or Gibson
RisingForce said 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 said 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!]

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.

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 said 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.

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 said 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 said 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 said on 27/Mar/14
5'9.5 , not 5'10 not 5'8
Dejavu said on 26/Mar/14
The tallest he can be is 178cm. I think he is inbetween 5'9 and 5'10
Brad said 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 said on 19/Mar/14
5'8 range. look at him next to bill murray.
Realist said 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.

He definitely wears some padded footwear. That's how he goes from this:

To this:

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.

5'10 1/2 and 5'8 are nuts , a strong 5'9 at worst , but under 5'10.

[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 said 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 said on 2/Mar/14
peak still 5ft9.5
Paul177 said 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 said on 1/Mar/14
174-175 peaking.
Dural said on 26/Feb/14
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.


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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 21/Feb/14
5'9.5 seems perfect. Noway 5'10.5 or 5'8. The same with Mel Gibson .
Paul177 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 17/Feb/14
Yeah, the 5'10.5" is definitely in shoes.
Pizzaman said 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 said on 15/Feb/14
Matt Damon: if you take out northern europe then i'm way above average
Pizzaman said 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 said on 15/Feb/14
5ft10.5 in normal footwear (1inch)
Dural said on 15/Feb/14
He doesn't look 5'10.5" next to Affleck, that's for sure. Weak 5'9".
Balrog said 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 said 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 .
jtm said on 14/Feb/14

tom said 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.
jtm said on 11/Feb/14
dicaprio was barely taller than tom hardy. he is not 5'11.5.
176,2Tunman said on 7/Feb/14
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 said 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 said on 6/Feb/14
176 cm is closer to the truth
truth said on 6/Feb/14
Probably 5ft9.5.
Arch Stanton said 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 said on 2/Feb/14
Matt damon is 176cm, and in the bourne films they listed him 5'9 on his passport
Realist said on 1/Feb/14
Don Cheadle 170
Matt Damon 174(looks more cause he must be wearing a lift of about an inch)
