Matt Damon's Height
5ft 9.75in (177 cm)
American actor best known for starring as Jason Bourne in The Bourne series, and for roles in Saving Private Ryan, The Martian, Good Will Hunting and The Departed. Matt himself said of his height, "I'm 5'10."
in a MoviesOnline.ca interview and in 2013 an Autograph Hunter
claimed Damon told him: "I'm 5-10.5, maybe 5-11 if I totally stretch out"
In The Sun newspaper, when talking about Courage Under Fire he did mention that height: "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."
He also mentioned in 2016 "I weigh probably 190 pounds right now, and I weighed 139 in [Courage Under Fire]"

He was dropped to 177 cm a while ago. 176 cm is probably his low, but I think 176.5 cm I'd his real height. Adds up perfectly with the 5'10.5" he started claiming a few years back(likely his height in shoes)

one day he'll be listed at 5'9.25

Hey Rob. Who do you think would edge out whom if measured, between Damon and celebheights user Bobby? 😉
Editor Rob: it will alternate.
Damon on Mondays, Bobby on Sundays 😛

I don't think 176 cm can be ruled out at all. He's looked in that 175-176 cm range more frequently than I initially thought. Certainly with James Corden as well as Robin Williams, Don Cheadle at times with Heath Ledger and even the '98 and '99 Oscars with Affleck. I personally wouldn't guess him that low except at night and would give him more 176.5, but I think there's a much better chance of 176 than 179, which he can also look, but can be ruled out by the fact that Damon regularly only claimed to be 5'10" during the press for Invictus. 5'10" flat can't be ruled out either, but now that we know Jude Law admitted to being only 5'10" himself, it brings it into question for Damon. Also, Damon was visibly shorter than Ben Carson, who looks about 177 cm with 184 cm Trump: Click Here
Carson was almost definitely taller when that photo was taken, but nowhere near the 6 feet he's listed on the internet. I'm sure that with a simple boot like this, nobody is going to question Damon at 5'10": Click Here
berta said on 4/May/17
177-178 is my best guess. 176 is no way. 179 is very small chanse of him being and his 180,5 claim is pretty funny

Looks about five inches between him and Heath Ledger with similar footwear. Damon is somewhere between five eight and five nine barefoot.
said on 30/Apr/17
Actually, Damon could look a good 5" shorter than Affleck at the 1999 Oscars too: Click Here
Legit 5'10" Guy Pearce also looked significantly taller than Damon did next to 5'7.5" Don Cheadle. Damon looks just about 2" taller than Cheadle here: Click Here
But Damon may have the camera advantage if you look at other pics from that night: Click Here Click Here
Their eye level is surprisingly close, but I think Cheadle has a small head.
said on 30/Apr/17
You're right, Alex. Matt usually does seem to have a good 1" on Casey Affleck, but Casey use to be listed here at 5'8", Rob has said he could be 5'8.5" and that's roughly what the average guess on his page is. Casey typically looks very similar in height to Joaquin Phoenix, who is an admitted 5'8" and I have seen Casey look nearly 6" shorter than his 6'2" brother before. I think 5'8.5" is probably more likely for Casey, which would add up with Damon at 5'9.5" because I agree that there's not much reason to suspect Damon of lifts. Surprisingly, Matt seems the same height as Casey here: Click Here
More surprising is Matt usually doesn't look more than 4" shorter than Ben and sometimes only 3", in fact, he can measure up as well to Ben as he did to Heath Ledger, though Ben often has bad posture and may wear thinner footwear. Though if you go back to the 1998 Oscars, Ben can seem at least 5 inches taller: Click Here
and a good 4"-4.5" at the 2010 Matt Damon tribute: Click Here
Of course, we maybe shouldn't rule out occasional lifts for Damon. We need good shots of his shoes indicating lifts before we assume it, but he can go from looking no more than 5'9" up to about 5'11" despite the fact that Damon usually has good posture. For instance, Robert De Niro was no more than 172 cm by 2011, yet Damon may have him by slightly more than an inch, but certainly not 2 inches here: Click Here
delancey, I agree that 176 cm is Damon's minimum, though I think it's premature to discuss height loss with Damon. I'd say 177 cm would be more of a max though, so I do think a very slight downgrade would be spot on since I really believe Damon is between 176 and 177 and always was.
delancey said on 26/Apr/17
Don't get why people want Damon downgraded? I guess he's getting a bit older so may have lost a tiny fraction, but the absolute lowest I could see is maybe 176 cm?
He's definitely not 175 cm range like Hardy.
dracula said on 26/Apr/17
I lived to see Matt Damon get downgraded
now let's wait for the final veredict of 176cm
Alex said on 22/Apr/17
I don't doubt that Casey is 1.75 but howcome matt always looks substantially taller even in good will hunting days , I doubt matt damon wears lifts.
said on 18/Apr/17
I agree with 176 at his low. Likely 176.5 cm midday. He said 5'10.5" in that video with Ben Affleck too and I agree that's a shoe height, but Matt never wears 0.75" Converse type. Always at least 1" so no more than 5'9.5", but the simple 5'10" Matt was claiming around Invictus was an honest round up. Looks the same height as Greg Kinnear, who is also supposedly 5'9.5": Click Here Click Here
Sometimes one is slightly taller, which is normal. Both were noticeably shorter than Ben Carson, who doesn't look more than 5'10" range with 184 cm Trump, but Carson may have been taller in his early 50s than he is now. Damon does look more 5'9"-5'9.5" max with a weak 5'7" Robin Williams as I certainly don't see 3 inches: Click Here Click Here
But 5'9.5" seems dead on and 176 cm minimum since he can look at least 5'10" a lot, more often than he looks 5'9". It's strange some people on this site just assume he's a 5'9" max, or even 5'8" lift wearer when there's never been any evidence of that.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Apr/17
"I'm 5-10.5, maybe 5-11 if I totally stretch out".
I think he's honest but in shoes. 5'9.5-75 barefoot. His lowest might be 176 but 177 seems about right.
park said on 16/Apr/17
After watching some very recent clips and interviews with Matt, I am beginning to wonder if he's lost height or is even shorter than this listing. What do you think?
Dejavu said on 14/Apr/17
Matt Damon could look 3 to 5 inches shorter than Ben Affleck depending on posture. He could look close to 2 inches shorter than kimmel too.
RisingForce said on 8/Apr/17
I agree, berta. He can surprisingly look only 175 cm with Corden as well as Ledger and at times with Robin Williams and Don Cheadle, but that's too low for him based on how tall he usually looks. I think 5'9.5" is the best guess and 176 cm minimum.
HonestSlovene said on 7/Apr/17
5'9"-5'10" range is arguable for Matt Damon.
berta said on 5/Apr/17
in his james cordon interview he really did only look about 2-3 cm taller. i dont think he is only 175 but maybe this is max what he is
RisingForce said on 31/Mar/17
In fairness, Damon was only claiming 5'10" when he did Invictus, so it's pretty obvious he rounded up from 5'9.5" barefoot then, and when Matt claimed 5'10.5" in that video with Affleck or told it to Glenn, he was giving a shoe height, but then really pushed it rounding up his shoe height when he claimed 5'11".
Peter175 said on 30/Mar/17
How come there isn't a single honest guy of these big names celebs. Rounding up like Clooney is fine, but rounding up and then adding another inch is NOT cool. Leo never saw 6ft in his life maybe not even in the morning and neither has Damon seen 5ft11. He is a 176-177 guy
said on 30/Mar/17
I remember thinking Damon looked 5'9.5" with Ledger: Click Here
But that was when Ledger was listed here at 6'1". To be consistent, I must admit that Damon can look 175 cm with Ledger only 184 cm and he's looked only 5'9" flat other times other times such as with James Corden, but Damon is tall enough to pass for a legit 5'10" a lot of the time as well. I'm still sold on 5'9.5".

Yuval said on 26/Mar/17
I just watched dogma and there is no way he is 12 cm shorter then affleck..he is more like 178-179 cm height
height said on 25/Mar/17
i think 5 ft 9
movshakr said on 23/Mar/17
he's 4" shorter than Heath Ledger in the photo. that puts him in the 5'7" mark
Chris said on 23/Mar/17
Looks smaller next to Ben affleck than cadet does sometimes or about the same. Never gave a tall or short impression just a kinda lower average impression. 5"9.25
Pierre said on 20/Mar/17
If James Corden is not really 5"8'barefoot then Matt Damon is maybe not 5"9.5'.
RainbowBlaster5 said on 19/Mar/17
If you're pessimistic you could say he dips into 1.75 but most likely never below 1.76 and wakes up at 1.78
Whaaat said on 18/Mar/17
Nasty jealous manlets commenting here. You won't be satisfied till rob downgrades him to 1.73 will you jealous shorties?
S.J.H said on 18/Mar/17
Lol. Damon can only be 5'9.5 in the morning 8-9am and went down his lowest 5'9
said on 15/Mar/17
I agree 100% on 5'9.5". No more, no less He's consistently looked a couple inches taller than 5'7.5" Don Cheadle, but no more: Click Here
(the difference is no greater than Rob with a 5'10" guy) and he certainly didn't look taller than 5'9.5" in Good Will Hunting with weak 5'7" Robin Williams. Still noticeably shorter than Tommy Lee Jones who looks about 5'11" at 70 years old: Click Here
and Bruce Willis, who in 2011 was looking the weak 5'11" Damon tries to claim he is: Click Here
Shredder said on 14/Mar/17
5'9.5 is the best bet , His claim is in shoes. Anything under 5'9 is trolling.
Kayle said on 14/Mar/17
I saw him at a MBTS event and he was wearing heeled shoes, as he always does, so it is really hard to tell. Casey was wearing similar footwear and Matt was about an inch taller, so my guess is the upper end of 5'9.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Mar/17
That's a good find with Corden. I always said 177 for Damon is nearer the truth.
said on 13/Mar/17
Here is a picture Matt Damon with James Corden listed 5"8'. Click Here
PaulC said on 10/Mar/17
Rather bizarrely I found myself standing next to Matt Damon at a urinal in the Czech Republic :-/ He had been watching a screening or Pirates of the Carribbean with Terry Gillingham (they were filming the Brother's Grimm in Prague), I was fortunate enough to be in the same screening as them (although unaware until after). When I recognised him upon leaving the toilet it struck me how short he was, I'm 6'3'', so obviously was somewhat taller, however the friend I was with 5'10'' and was clearly taller. I would say Matt Damon is 5'8'', 5'8.5" at a push.
delancey said on 8/Mar/17
5'8 range for Damon is completely ridiculous. This listing is spot on imo, could even argue 178cm.
Bobby said on 8/Mar/17
@HonestSlave, no, I wake up at 178.47cm, and drop to 177.2cm in the evenings, I've measured this repeatedly. Since it's only a 6mm difference, I round up. I'm above average height though. By the way, you wanna know something interesting? I tallied up all the height averages of 85 countries, and then divided the total by the amount of countries, and the worldwide average height for men, is 5'4. I wonder what Rob would have to say about this.
Bobby said on 8/Mar/17
Are we arguing that Matt Damon measures 5'9.75 in the afternoon, or in the late evenings? If in the late evenings, then I still think he's a decent enough 5'10 to claim that as his height.
Jason said on 27/Feb/17
Matt looked 6+ inches shorter than Ben Affleck at the oscars. Ben most likely is 6'3 range in shoes so that leaves Matt around 5'9
Guillermo said on 26/Feb/17
Seeing him next to Ben Affleck at Oscars he appeared six inches shorter. So Ben at 6'4" Matt would be 5'10" but with Ben at 6'2.25" so Damon would be 5'8 3/4" or 5'9". Feb 26, 2017
Tarik said on 25/Feb/17
The problem in assessing Matt Damons height to be honest is that from photos he appears to wear high heeled shoes and possibly lifts. A barefoot photo with other celebrities will give a more accurate. I 5ft9er I believe.
RisingForce said on 25/Feb/17
The 5'8" range stuff with Damon was always nonsense. He can often look 5'10" and there's no evidence he wears lifts. He was barely shorter than Clooney, both in socks. I bet 5'9.5", no more, no less. He probably measured 5'10.5" in shoes.
Arthur said on 23/Feb/17
I think there is a chance Damon is 5'9 7/8 at his usual low and 5'9 3/4 at his absolute low. He is definitely under 5'10 at his low though. He never looks a proper 5'10.
Sonnecker said on 23/Feb/17
I always saw Matt in the 176 cm zone, 177 at times.... Very similar to Mel Gibson in height and body proportions.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Feb/17
Nothing under 177cm
MaskDeMasque said on 22/Feb/17
He has to be somewhere in the 176-177cm zone at night. I'm 5'9.5 and he looks a similar height/build to me.
S.J.H said on 17/Feb/17
No damon is not quite under 5'9. At worst 5'8.75
jtm said on 16/Feb/17
clearly shorter than joel gretsch and looked close to Bruce McGill's height. McGill looks 5'7.5-5'8 to me. Damon is closer to 5'8 than 5'10.
S.J.H said on 16/Feb/17
Not agree with this. Jason issacs close line between 5'10 and 5'11 claim look a most solid 5'10.5 in celebheight nobody could denied and if damon is 177cm then issac is 181cm which is impossible at most damon is 176cm in the morning and 180cm for issac
height said on 14/Feb/17
i think 5 ft 9.5
berta said on 14/Feb/17
í think peoplethink he is shorter than he is. he is clearly no shorter than 177 and max 178
Tarik said on 14/Feb/17
@S.J.H. I totally agree with your estimate.
said on 13/Feb/17
In 2010 Green Zone. Taller guy is 5'10.5 Jason Issacs. Damon looks at least 1.5' shorter
Screenshot from 2010 Green Zone. Jason issacs look 1.5" taller no tricks. People may check out the movie
Damon with jimmy kimmel also similar to how jason issacs edge out damon by 1.5"
Damon is only 175cm not more. Jimmy kimmel i've walk by close up he was not over 5'10.5 in person and it's a morning between 10-11am when i drop by a restaurant in Brooklyn, New York and see theres some fans taking autograph with him. Since then no way even matt damon can be over 5'9
bit said on 8/Feb/17
He was doing a tom brady skit amd the interviewer
AlexItaly said on 6/Feb/17
He is not tall nether short, I think 178 cm is right.
S.J.H said on 6/Feb/17
I have met jimmy kimmel once in real and was so close to him i can easily tell he is nothing over 5'10.5 but i give extra 0.25 just to make myself believe his taller and i did open up with honesty now he even be lower at 5'10.25 since i met him in morning and matt damon look 1.5" lower than kimmel. Damon is max 5'9 and probably just 5'8.75 can only be 5'10 with shoes
said on 2/Feb/17
Rob, maybe out of bed he got measured 5'10.5'' and round up to 5'11''? Only way to justify his claim. He looks 5'9.5'' - 5'10'' range to me.
Editor Rob: or got measured 5ft 10.5 in footwear, either is a way some people give a height.
Tarik said on 2/Feb/17
His proportions as well as seeing him pictured next to James Corden suggest to me he is a 175cm guy.
said on 31/Jan/17
Rob, do you still think he could hold a 5'10 flat at night?
Editor Rob: at some point of the day I'm sure he does measure 5ft 10, but ultimately drops under it, I think if measured he's going to clear 5ft 9.5, but how much...
delancey said on 29/Jan/17
He's always been kinda stocky/built up which gives him a shorter appearance.
177cm MIN in my opinion, no lower.
Prince said on 24/Jan/17
I used to think 5-10 was his barefoot height at his low height of the day after being up for 5 or more hours, but after having met him he's easily 5'11". My low height of the day is 5'9" and he was 2 inches taller than me and we were both wearing those chuck taylor all star converse shoes that only give a quarter inch of height.
berta said on 23/Jan/17
heis a hard one to guess i think he is one dude that sometimes looks 175 and other times 180. probably have a little lifgt in the shoes . 178 sounded little to tall. i would go with weak 177
Johnny said on 22/Jan/17
@Rob add The Martian at the top please....
Prince said on 19/Jan/17
maybe 5-11 if I totally wear my wife's high heels.
MD said on 11/Jan/17
Was Ryan Seacrest on a box at the Golden Globe red carpet a few days ago, or maybe had in some massive lifts, because they were able the same height during their interview during the telecast of the event. It wasn't a fullbody shot, but nearly so. I suspect he must have been on some kind of small box.
jd said on 10/Jan/17
If he list's 70" then he is likely at max 69.5 inches...look at the heights of NFL prospects before and after the combine, many are 1-2 inches below what they list, no one over lists their height...photos are very hard to interpret-you have footwear, slope of the the floor, and posture plus camera angle
Friop said on 6/Jan/17
I guess a solid 5'9 fits him? How much do you think he weighed in Bourne Supremacy?
Chad said on 4/Jan/17
Another guy that should be called the king of lifts. In ocean's 11 he looked about 5 foot 10, 1 inch shorter than george clooney, but in ocean's 12 he was looking 2 inches taller than clooney at 6 foot 1 and towered over both him and brad pitt.The only explanation for that is huge lifts! inside his shoes.
Jackson said on 2/Jan/17
Barely an inch taller than Julia Stiles. He can't be over 5'9
Friop said on 1/Jan/17
When i last watched Jason Bourne, Matt Damon appeared an inch taller than Stiles.
Fred Mertz said on 31/Dec/16
I'm watching Matt Damon walk next to Julia Stiles in the new Jason Bourne movie and they are both the same height with flat shoes. Julia might even be a little bit taller and she's 5 foot 8.

way off said on 23/Dec/16
After having seen him in person, I can confirm with 100 percent certainty that he is straight up BSing when he says he is 5'11'' or even 5'10''. I mean completely BS and he knows it too. I went out with a 5'10'' guy for years and he was almost always taller than me whenever I wore the same shoes that I was wearing when I stood next to Matt Damon. Yet I was a couple of inches taller than Matt Damon in the same shoes in spite of Matt Damon wearing very thick soled shoes unlike the guy I went out with. No way is this guy 5'10''. He is probably around 5'5'' barefoot.
Shredder said on 22/Dec/16
Yeah 5'9.5 looks better than 5'10 , 5'10.5
Will 1.77 said on 21/Dec/16
He didn't look 178 cm with James Corden. Also, Jude Law looks taller than Matt. Yeah, this listing looks more accurate.

Looks an exact inch below Clooney and Pitt in the Oceans movies…
James B said on 19/Dec/16

Mr. R said on 9/Dec/16
Not even possible. As I have said, Clooney is only 5-9.5 Damon is shorter than him. He is closer to 5-8.5
Dejavu said on 7/Dec/16
Still think he is more
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Dec/16
177-178cm is spot on for Damon
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 3/Dec/16
I think that he's 176-177 CM. He has a long face/low eye level, shorter legs and a long torso which can make him seem shorter. He doesn't have the best posture either.
Realist said on 3/Dec/16
@HonestSlovene not really I am 177 cms and 199 lbs but it's mostly muscle and my legs are like 42 pounds each.
Prince said on 2/Dec/16
There's a pic with Matt Damon standing next to 5' 9" Casey Affleck and Damon honestly seems an inch taller. Damon is probably 5' 10 1/4" for a few hours after waking up and 5'10" after standing around 5 hours or so.

It's crazy he claimed 5'11 if he stretched out. That's insane, I've never seen him look more than a strong 5'9.
Editor Rob: to be fair Cowboy, he is probably talking about busting a gut first thing out of bed.
said on 23/Nov/16
Rob, is 176 cm possible for his low?
Gaza, I've never seen enough to go much lower than 177.
To be fair, anybody saying 5ft 9 has to be 'trolling, right

this is comedy lol a pic of him and 5-7 cheadle barefoot...he was only 2 inches at the most taller....he's more like 5-8...5-8 1/2 to 5.9 at the best!
HonestSlovene said on 20/Nov/16
@Realist If that is true then he is overweight.
said on 19/Nov/16
Rob, do you really think he's already lost some at height 46??
Editor Rob: Jeff, I don't think he would have lost anything (except 1-2mm).
Prince said on 16/Nov/16
WHat is kinda funny is that in the movie, The Bourne Supremacy, there's a scene where they cut to Matt Damon's character showing 5'9" on his driver's license. He claims to be 5'10" and does look it but why didn't they use 5'10" as his character's height. Also, when he says he's 5'10 when asked about his height, is he giving his height counting footwear or giving his barefoot height. Is Matt Damon aware that a person's height changes a half inch from the time they get up to the time they are going to bed?
said on 15/Nov/16
Why the downgrade Rob?
Editor Rob: I think over last 5 years the odds are more for slightly under 5ft 10.

176.8cm is the lowest for him..

Wow! Matt Damon at 5'9 3/4". I notice many people saying they believe he's only 5'9, but I still think he's 5'10" to at best 5'10 1/2" as his low height of the day. Matt looked at least 3 inches taller than 5'7" Robin Williams in the movie, Good Will Hunting.
Realist said on 10/Nov/16
He's 176 cms 190 lbs is possible.
Johno said on 9/Nov/16
C-mo; saw that picture before i knew of Triple G's height and for me Triple G is in the 5'9-range in most part. With that picture, if you were to draw a straight line you will notice G measures slightly taller but i don't think that picture is accurate enough to assess precise heights but for me, Damon looks like a 5'8-range, 5'9 there.
hijopotamus said on 8/Nov/16
0,25 inches taller than Pitt.
Thing is Matt has short limbs and not a great posture as Brad.
Spot on Rob
said on 8/Nov/16
Rob. Golovkin is around 177cm and matt damon is a little taller
I think Matt Damon is 178-179cm (depending on the time of the day)
Editor Rob: yeah c-mo, I think you can still make a case for Matt being at least his height or even edging, it is very close with them.

Nice downgrade rob! 5'9.75 for a morning measurement i wouldn't argued

Editor Rob: I think there's a decent amount of evidence to argue say 5ft 9.5, I think a lot of time he can look it, other times he can look near 5ft 10.

Rob, Damon looks 2 inches shorter than Brad Pitt here, and Pitt isn't wearing anything massive Click Here
The only time this guy looks his claim, is with Ben Affleck, who stands like the hunchback of notredam with him... In my eyes there's no way he holds 5'10 in the evening, he is 177 cm
Editor Rob: the 9.75 is a 50/50 for me
172.4cm guy said on 2/Nov/16
I think Matt Damon is right in the "average" range for American height...176cm now, maybe 177cm in his peak. He looked average, but muscular, in the last Jason Bourne movie, respectable and still threatening. I think he may get a lift from wearing boots or thick sole shoes in the films and can look in the 178-180 range, but in my mind, he's definitely an average height guy.

Heath Ledger should be upgraded to 6'0 3/4" if Matt Damon is 5'10". Besides, Heath Ledger was clearly an inch taller than Christian Bale, and wasn't much shorter than Morgan Freeman.
jd said on 28/Oct/16
next to james corden he is barely taller.
truefilm_buff said on 27/Oct/16
Rent is right. He put it beautifully. This guy is a genuine 5'9.25, the actual non-inflated American Caucasian Average. He and Rob would look like exactly like Harry Melling (in height) next to Rob. I think Damon is gonna be there soon on Robs personal photo list. 176 cm for Damon, the average american he is.
what!!!?!!! said on 18/Oct/16
i dont actually think that he is that short. He is probably 176.5... but not lower than 1.76.
Rick said on 17/Oct/16
I'm sorry to say but this guy just doesn't look anything taller than 5ft 9in (175 cm). He's got short legs and average torso, he clearly looks shorter than average. In the movies he's in he's systematically shorter than most men around him and he juste gives me that impression to have a 5ft9 built. I really think Matt is 175, or 176 best case scenario. Big fan of him though, great actor and great personnality!
HonestSlovene said on 16/Oct/16
@Bobby The thing is though Ben Affleck is more 6'2 flat or 188 cm and looks consistently 4.5 in taller. That would make Matt about 176.5-177 cm considering everything equal (footwear, posture, surface level etc.). Google has most heights wrong.
@jtm You are a local downgrader just like viper, what else should I expect from you?
said on 15/Oct/16
Rob, how many inches difference do you see in this clip? Click Here
I see near 2 inches...
Editor Rob: probably 4cm range
jtm said on 15/Oct/16
still have a hard time accepting 5'9.5-5'10. call me a troll all you want but sticking with 5'8 range. never seen a 5'10 guy look as short as he does.
josh jeffords said on 15/Oct/16
Mat is not a full 5 10 barefoot maybe in shoes or big boots but not close barefoot.
Simple math he is never the tall guy or even come in around average he stands fairly upright but shorter than many.
In bourne I think his military record says 5 9 170 not that is gospel but thats all he looks like.
Also need to take into consideration he is on tv he is shorter than he appears.
In photos he is 2-3 shrter than pitt and a big inch under clooney who himself is not a big guy that makes a weak 5 9 barefoot.
Weirdly he did not look that much shorter than norton who Ive heard is 6 1 he might even look taller...dont buy that either.
said on 14/Oct/16
Now that the average guess is 5'9.64 will you finally consider downgrading him to 5'9.75?
Editor Rob: it's an interesting average, I haven't ruled out the 9.75, it may well turn out the nearest you could get.
Dave schultz said on 14/Oct/16
He's pretty tall...
Bobby said on 13/Oct/16
Bare in mind that Ben Affleck is 6'3, Google lists him as 1.92 meters, which is a little over 6'3. He looked really tall in Dawn of Justice, so it's possible that Cavil is actually closer to 6'2 himself, but he also has super good posture like Stephen Amell does. That said, Matt Damon looks a solid 5'10 to me, I've compared him to Garfield from observable memory, Garfield'/ lanky frame aside, they're equal in height.
Rent said on 13/Oct/16
Perfect exemple of strong 5'9 and weak 5'10, a good average, no more no less. In Ocean's eleven, on the scene where Tess appear for the first time, Brad Pitt looks close to have 3 inches on him, another proof than Pitt sometimes wears lifts.

Dan said on 10/Oct/16
Matt Damon is 5ft 9.5in (177 cm) in my opinion. That's what he looks next to Jimmy Kimmel and Ben Affleck. I always thought he looked perfectly average. He is well proportioned and has a pretty strong build. Might by time for a downgrade Rob? You've dropped Heath Ledger half an inch, it would only make sense to do the same to Matt Damon.
said on 5/Oct/16
Hey robs! Did you see the emmy awards sketch with kimmel and damon? What did you think of their difference? To me it felt at least 3 cm, maybe 4. And I thought damon had kinda bigger heels..
Editor Rob: 177 is always an arguable figure, I wouldn't guess under that mark though.
Dejavu said on 3/Oct/16
If kimmel is 181cm I struggle to see him taller than 177cm and could look 176

He is 5'9.5-5'9.75" / 176-177cm at the end of the day standing tall on his bare feet and wakes up at 5'10.25-5'10.5 /178-179cm or what he usually claims to be and he looses an average of 2 cm just how most of us average guys do. Just LOL at the notion that he is the full 5'11 though or even a mm over 179 cm in the morning.
Prince said on 29/Sep/16
I would actually guess Matt Damon at 5'10" as his low height of the day. Starts the day briefly at 5' 10 1/2" then is 5'10 1/4" for 4 or 5 hours roughly. The rest of the day 5'10" I've seen him stand next to Robin Williams in the movie Good Will Hunting and Robin who was 5'7" seemed 3 inches shorter than Damon. Also Brad Pitt who's very likely 5'11" during the Ocean's movies had an inch on Damon. Some scenes made Brad Pitt seem 2 inches taller but I think it was that Damon was walking on a part of the street that had lower elevation and Pitt was in a more elevated part of the street.
Dejavu said on 27/Sep/16
Actually he looks 177 with kimmel and could even be 176
said on 26/Sep/16
Hi Rob. When are you downgrading Damon to 5'9.75? Doesn't your YouTube video estimate Damon at 5'9.5-5'10?
Editor Rob: well I haven't ruled it out...
I actually intend to sit down over next 2 days and put some basic voting into the comment section. It will be interesting over the long-term to see what the 'Wisdom of the Crowd' gives to some listings...
I do listen to wisdom...well, most of the time :)
Dejavu said on 24/Sep/16
I think 177cm is closer to the truth. He is clearly 2 inches shorter than Jimmy Kimmel who Rob listed as 182cm.
Kourosh 176-177 cm said on 24/Sep/16
@Prince I agree with you I find full 2 cm is abit much. I normally lose 1.25 to 1.75 cm during day
said on 24/Sep/16
@Prince . . I agree that everyone on the site puts way to much emphasis on shrinkage throughout the day. In the video Rob made showing the change in his measurements throughout a typical day (Click Here
) he goes from 175.3cm out of bed to 173.8cm in the evening - a loss of about 1.5cm or 0.6inches which seems like a lot but after just an hour awake he's already lost the majority of that (1cm). Really the difference between 9am and 9pm was half a cm. When people talk about being "measured early or late" they're talking a difference of 0.2 of an inch . . .
Prince said on 22/Sep/16
I'm not sure why some folks think we lose 3/4 - 1" throughout the day. Absolutely no one loses that much height throughout a day. The difference is only 1/4 - 1/2" at most. It's scientifically proven that the average person loses a half inch after being up for a substantial time. As a matter of fact, most of us lose a quarter inch 5-10 minutes after waking up already. We hold on to the other quarter inch for 4 to 5 hours roughly.
:D said on 19/Sep/16
Looked 2 inches shorter than Kimmel with visibly bigger footwear at the emmys.
D said on 16/Sep/16
He probably wakes at 1.78. The rest of the day 1.77
Shredder said on 11/Sep/16
He has a short body for his height , He most likely is truly around 5'10.
Benefits said on 11/Sep/16
Yeah he does look more like 5'10. He always appears a strong average height guy even in his older age. I'd have to agree with 177-178cm, maybe 179 in his prime.
Willes189 said on 9/Sep/16
Maybe 177, but not under that! 177-178 is fair for Damon
heightchecker34 said on 8/Sep/16
As a 5'9 guy who once believed he was 5'10 his entire life and never got questioned about it... its not a really big deal. I don't feel any different at 5'10 (when I'm wearing shoes) than I would at 5'9 barefoot, and I'm not even being sour. For me personally, until I get to the 5'11 mark in dress shoes and then that's when I feel a difference, when I take them off. I think 2 inches is where you can start to tell a difference in people's height, or it becomes noticeable, even if you're not a height person. Matt Damon is a comfortable 178cm guy.. who I wouldn't feel short next too if we came face to face.
Jed said on 6/Sep/16
His character is listed as being 5'9 in the Bourne identity
HonestSlovene said on 6/Sep/16
@Benefits Most likely just between those 2 marks, 5'9.5 or 5'9.75. Looked either 5'9 or 5'10 in his movies, but I am leaning towards 5'10 since he did look that in the Departed.
D said on 5/Sep/16
He is obviously taller than 1.75.
Benefits said on 2/Sep/16
So is he 5'9 or 5'10?
John said on 1/Sep/16
Millionaires who lie about their height are so lame and Damon is just about as lame as it gets. You don't have enough Matt.... We need to think your tall too? 5.9ish mr self righteous
what!!!?!!! said on 25/Aug/16
i dont... he doesn't look short, but at the same time he doesnt look 1.78... i dont know or it's just me. More like 1.77... but who knows i've got the same build and im 1.81 when in pictures look like 1.78 d;
Benefits said on 19/Aug/16
So he's 5'9 then?
CS said on 18/Aug/16
One of the shorter looking 5'10 guys I've seen. Might be because of being stocky and his proportions though. Also, there still is the possibility he falls a fraction under 5'10.
Johno said on 18/Aug/16
But then again; Rob is more of 5'8.5 person at his median thus, Corden could be labelled a solid 5'8 and Damon; a 5'9 at his average if we were to assume a maximum of 1-inch difference.
Johno said on 17/Aug/16
@Truth, i have been observing Matt Damon and Corden even before this latest video and even stated the difference between the two is negligible and now with this lengthy new video; i am convinced there is less than 1-inch difference between the two, most likely 0.75-inches.
If Damon is 5'10, 5'9.75 or 5'9.5; Corden needs be basically around 5'9, 5'9.25 or at least in the upper end of 5'8. Corden is not this tall; 5'8 seems to be his max height. Throughout his career before he got famous he looked a strong 5'7 and 5'8; 5'7.5-5'8
He is shorter than a 5'8 Patrick Stewart who Rob has seen. A barefoot Cindy Crawford seemed to have more height on Corden than Damon.
I believe Rob has examples of what differences of 1.5-inches and 1-inches looks like; for me 1.5-inches is totally unrealistic and 1-inch is in the realms of possibility with 0.75-inches the best compromise.
James basically needs to be around 5'9 for Damon's usually estimates to hold up. Lucky for us, these two seem to be Good buddies and you will probably see more comparisons.
truth said on 17/Aug/16
@TJE Yes I think around 176.5 cm to 177 cm would be the most accurate assumption for Damon. Under 175 cm is bogus as well as anything more than 178 - 179 cm.
TJE said on 16/Aug/16
The case for 177 get stronger and stronger as the days go by
truth said on 14/Aug/16
@Johno Pleas pause the video at 1:34.
James Corden is confirmed of being a solid 173 cm or Rob's height. Matt looks more than 1 inch taller than him, in fact one could argue it looks at least 1.5 inches or 4 cm, so Matt Damon is 177 cm compared to James Corden. I always argued he is at most this listed height, the same for Brad Pitt, but no more than 0.5 as listed and most likely only 0.25 less than listed. So if we are going to be accurate and not biased:
James Corden: 5'8.25 / 173 cm (same as Rob)
Matt Damon: 5'9.75 / 177 cm
Brad Pitt: 5'10.75 / 179.5 cm
Sam said on 9/Aug/16
He looks 5'9. Maybe a good case of a genuine 5'10 looking shorter than he is because of stocky build.
Kourosh said on 7/Aug/16
@ad i saw the video and i was wondering the same. Matt Damon did not look visibly taller than Corden.
if corden is 5'8 then matt should be around 5'9.25 176 cm
aj said on 6/Aug/16
You downgraded DiCaprio, affleck, and ledger all of whom have been compared to Damon. I think a quarter inch downgrade would be fair
Johno said on 3/Aug/16
Yeh ad, seen that vid and they have the same clothing and boots on, there is maximum of 0.5-inches in it.
James is listed 5'8 here, he is probably shorter than Rob since, Rob is around 5'8.5.
Corden is probably more 5'7.5 though, he is shorter than Sir Patrick Stewart; similar in height to Gary Barlow and based on evidence, Matt edges him by a bit. 5'10 looks way-way-WAY off for him. Compared to Corden, he don't even hit 5'9; more rather ----- 5'8-5'8.5 or dead-on at Rob's height of 5'8.5, Matt is only 0.75-1-inches shorter Brad Pitt and not much then Dicaprio.
said on 3/Aug/16
Based on this video with James Corden (1.73cm ). there is no way Matt Damon is 178cm. They are clearly the same height.
jtm said on 2/Aug/16
he's shorter than julia stiles in heels and she claims 5'7.
RisingForce said on 31/Jul/16
Jude Law at 5'10" further confirms Damon at 5'9.5". The 5'10.5" is probably in shoes and 5'11" stretching it or rounding up in shoes. A nurse recently measured me in shoes since I forgot to take them off since she didn't even ask me to, called out my height in shoes then later said she'd deduct for shoes. So I could easily see Damon getting measured in shoes and thinking nothing of it.
PLB said on 30/Jul/16
Damon is probably just under 5'10". And that's OK. He also isn't particularly good looking. Also OK. His most famous role is as a spy. Spies are supposed to blend in and he is about the right size and looks to be an average man.
The worst possible spy was the young Sean Connery as James Bond. Too tall, Too muscular and much too handsome. If he waked through a hotel lobby - heads would turn and everyone who had seen him would remember him . That's all wrong for a spy. Damon is more plausible. No one would remember him in a crowd.

I would not go below 5ft9 for him but also nothing more than 5ft10-5ft10.25. Generally looks about 5ft9.75.

Redhead said on 2/Apr/16
5'9.75". Not much under 5'10", but I still think 5'10.5" morning and 5'9.75" night.
184.3cm (Night) said on 2/Apr/16
Damon - 5'9.75"
Pitt - 5'10.75"
My new estimates for the three.
Damon looks shy of solid 5'10" next to legit 5'10" range guys.
Clooney- Can look very close to Pitt when he stands straight. Also edges 5'10" guys by small fraction.
Pitt - Looked a solid 0.5 inch under DiCaprio who i have at 5'11.25". He also tends to wear shoes in excess of 1 inch which i suspect is to hit the 6 foot mark. Can sometimes pull off even taller with lifts.
TJE said on 1/Apr/16
Yes, by nearly a cm in fact.
Paleman said on 31/Mar/16
Come on guys, don't be ridiculous. He does not stand at only 5'8". He may not be as tall as 5'10", but he's definitely not 5'8" either. If he was 5'8" then he should look almost 12 centimeters shorter than Heath Ledger here, which he obviously is not... Where do you guys pull these 5'8" listings for Damon and Clooney anyway?
His 5'10"5 claim is too big a stretch, but he could measure at a weak 5'10", perhaps even 5'9"5. But I'd be very, VERY surprised if he was seriously measured at 5'8".
Mat said on 31/Mar/16
Rob, if someone is 178,2-178,4 range at night, is it safe to say he would edge Damon out?

Johno, dude you nailed it)
Johno said on 4/Mar/16
@Chris, that video of Damon and Corden is pretty telling and you can see how close in height Corden and Damon are and it was very hard for me to differentiate their heights thus, an 1-inch difference is basically out of the window and i have simply given Damon a default 0.5-inch advantage.
James Corden is listed as 5'8 but in reality he is probably a bit shy of 5'8; since his days in Gavin and Stacey, he has given off a classic 5'7-range appearance making Damon an 5'8-ranger ---- he is a fair bit off 5'10.
@Mask, you seem to have the height differences between Damon, Clooney and Pitt right and inturn, if your height estimates for them three was out of bed, they would be within 0.25 inches of my own.
James Corden 5'8, 5'7.5
Damon 5'9, 5'8-ranger
Pitt 5'10 [early in the day]
said on 4/Mar/16
Damon looked anywhere from less than an inch to near two inches under Sebastian Stan in The Martian premiere photos...near Chiwetel Ejiofor, Damon looks pretty even. Both guys can look anywhere from 5'9.5"-5'10", if not always a strong 5'10".
hambubger said on 4/Mar/16
5'9" at most. A guy with this much ego would give a minimum of 1" boost to his height, so if he claimed 5'10" he's definitely 5'9" or shorter.
MaskDeMasque said on 2/Mar/16
i think you're close. IMO i'd say:
Clooney 5'10 maybe 5'10.25
Pitt- About 5'10.5
said on 2/Mar/16
The guy is 5'9" - 5'9.5" - he doesn't cut the 5'10" mark to me. With 5'8" James Corden...
If you watch the whole video you'll see how close they are.

I don't believe Damon is more then 1-inch shorter then either Clooney or Pitt. When i stated 5'8, he looked it then but i believe a 5'8-range might be a better estimate. Pitt and Clooney are about inch taller.
Johno said on 17/Feb/16
In the above picture, Heath Ledger has 3 inches on him.

Brad Pitt and George Clooney are strong 5'10'', therefore Matt Damon must be atleast 1 inch shorter. 5'9'' max. for him.

Editor Rob: I think he's sitting there with a script in his left hand and a phone in his right hand...with homepage set to celebheights of course ;)
but really, I don't know - some people think of height a lot, others barely give it a thought...they have so many other things going on in life, be it work or pastimes etc that height is but a passing thought.
BT said on 27/Jan/16
@Andrea: Keyword here is straight, if you look straight at that picture and draw a straight line it looks like a 3in range difference. The angle isn't good enough to draw a straight line and say "there you go". I don't know how to explain this, but try looking at it leaning down and to the right a bit, and you'll see Ben is over 4 inches taller. You could use the meeting-point between the wall and the carpet as a reference point.
Johno said on 26/Jan/16
Don't know how he looks like to a much taller Ben Affleck but to a similar height James Corden, he looks about 0.5 inches taller. Corden i would be confident in saying is 5'7.5. Matt Damon is an average 5'8 in comparison. He tends to be one of the shorter actors out there.
said on 24/Jan/16
Well, the question was "how much difference do you see in THIS PIC... And it certainly is nowhere near 4 inches there! I don't think Ben is dropping that much height there, anyway...
Editor Rob: straight on visually between 3-3.5.

Rob, you mean 2.5-3 inches at most, right?
Matt does look at least 1.5 inch above Ben's eyelevel and Ben is even raising his eyelevel a bit in that photo...
Editor Rob: I don't think ben is standing at his tallest

Rob, how much difference do you see in this pic? Click Here
Editor Rob: between 3.5-4 range may be possible
That makes Damon 5'10.5 then??
Editor Rob: it doesn't make him 10.5, with Ben his posture I think can make him look shorter at times than 6ft 2, but I doubt he really is.

Looking at a number of shots with taller guys I'm thinking 5'9.5-5'9.75 is his range, maybe 5'9.5 is a bit harsh, but 5'10 looks a tad generous.

Back in the days i didnt know much about angle posture lifts And eye level And thaught this Guy was 5'8-9 but the more i see of the Guy i think 5'9,75-10 can look anywere 5'9,5-10,5

always thought he was 5'9 but back when Saving Private Ryan was out he was "5'11"
watch School Ties. He's def 5'9

Rob, what do you think is more likely, that he is 177 range or 178 range at night?
Editor Rob: I would say it could be close to 50/50 on whether he was 5ft 10 or dropped a fraction under.

I saw Matt Damon a few days ago. I asked him how tall he was barefoot and he whispered into my right ear 5'9 3/4".

Its the angle of the pic if you look closer you will see his eyelevel is around Ledgers mouth, it isnt under. Plus he is leaning on Matt which also maybe contributes some more loss.
I do think he is maybe 5'9.75" though.
Josh said on 9/Jan/16
178???? This guy makes 5'10 guys look very short! Even if Ledger was 185, no 178cm guy looks that short next to a 185 cm person!! Funny.
Josh said on 8/Jan/16
Lol charlie you're silly. Ledger was easily a strong 6 footer. Maybe not the full 6'1, but he was nudging it. Robin Williams was a bit over 5'7 and Matt was a couple inches taller. At his lowest Matt could be just under 5'10, but he generally looks it.

Matt Damon is 5 foot 7 flat foot in the morning. If he looks 2 or 3 inches taller tha Robin Williams its because Robin is an old well was an old man and you shrink a few ages when you get old. Robin Williams height was around 4 foot 5 inches tops. Heath Ledger was listed as 5 foot 10 inches at one time now its 6 foot 1? Come now I am 5 foot 10 and a quarter when I wake up bare foot and I am more like Ledgers height maybe even taller

No chance he's 5'9.
He's a solid 5'10
said on 7/Jan/16
Sorry, but I'm pretty sure Matt Damon was listed as 5ft8 on this site a few years back. Why the sudden change?
Editor Rob: he's never been listed that low here.
TJ said on 4/Jan/16
He's quite stocky, which can make him look a little shorter. 5'10 does seem OK for him

Matt Damon is about as 5'11 as Johnny Depp.
cole said on 27/Dec/15
@Brad: He looks about 2.5in shorter in that one photo, but the angle favors Damon slightly, in other shots he looks nearer 3 inches shorter. I think closer to 5'9.5 than 10, 5'9.75 is a fair shout.
Brad said on 26/Dec/15
If that's 5' 10" with Ledger above I'm Santa Claus.
said on 26/Dec/15
Rob, do you think there is a chance that Matt is a underneath the 5'10" mark.
Editor Rob: I think there is always a chance he is 5ft 9.75 as much as 10, I wouldn't have guessed him only 5ft 9 though.
said on 19/Dec/15
Matt does look short, especially in that pic with Ledger, but he rarely looks short next to 6'2 Affleck Click Here
so I think his height can vary between 5'8 to 5'10 easily because he is one of those odd actors that can look tall when he wants to or look short when he doesn't ..
