American actor best known for starring as Jason Bourne in The Bourne series, and for roles in Saving Private Ryan, Goodwill Hunting and The Departed. Matt himself said of his height, "I'm 5'10." in a MoviesOnline.ca interview and in 2014 added a half inch, now claiming to be 5ft 10.5.

I have seen quite a few films of his lately. He never seems to look a full 5f10/178cm though. I would peg him between 176-177cm. I think 177cm would be a better listing for him.
Shell says on 9/Apr/14
I saw Damon in Vegas while they were filming the first oceans movie. I was shocked at how small he looked, no way he is 5 ft 10 in , he didn't even look 5 ft 9 in. Maybe 5 ft 8 in, I'm 5 ft 9 in tall and I was westing flat shoes and he was not as tall as me. My friends saw many of the actors from that movie the week we were there and we were all surprised at how much shorter they all looked in real life.
FA says on 5/Apr/14
i wonder who's taller, Him or Sean Faris?
AJ says on 5/Apr/14
In stuck on you looks about the same height as greg kinnear, a quarter inch taller at max. I think 177cm is better than 178.
SaveUsY2J says on 4/Apr/14
I'm with Shredder on this one. He doesn't look a full 5'10 but never looks as low as 5'8" either.
lelman says on 3/Apr/14
@JamesB it's obviously a joke, the whole thing is them ripping it out of each other as a joke. Although, compared to Ben Affleck, Damon IS short.
chrisssss says on 3/Apr/14
In the bourne movies, he was listed 5'9(175cm) in his passport, i'd say he's that height, cuz jimmy kimmel ISNO TALLER THAN 180CM and looks 2 inches taller, so 5'9 for damon
the shredder says on 27/Mar/14
5'9.5 , not 5'10 not 5'8
Dejavu says on 26/Mar/14
The tallest he can be is 178cm. I think he is inbetween 5'9 and 5'10
Brad says on 20/Mar/14
Now claiming 5' 10.5". This guy is a clown. He gets owned by Clooney & Pitt in every Oceans film with ease.
jtm says on 19/Mar/14
5'8 range. look at him next to bill murray.
Realist says on 18/Mar/14
About an inch taller than Walhberg. Comments like that of affleck should be taken with a pinch of salt. They think a 5'6 guy is a 5'8 guy. They're estimation is about 2 inches more always. Affleck is so big that anyone would feel small in front of him.
James B says on 14/Mar/14

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.

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

5'10 1/2 and 5'8 are nuts , a strong 5'9 at worst , but under 5'10.
Ian says on 6/Mar/14
Definitely 5'9 no question.
Sean says on 3/Mar/14
[The good thing though...if you are old, have lost height and then pass away, you actually end up growing back to your peak on celebheights!] That is too funny!
[Editor Rob: Arnie by age 80 will be praying for the end, he may end up six feet under, but he'll spend an eternity at over six feet on celebheights!]
176,2Tunman says on 3/Mar/14
Rob,if we consider than Dicaprio is maybe a little closer to 5'11 than 6' like 181 perhaps Damon is more likely 176.5-77?In the most reliable scenes of The Departed he looked at least a good 4 cm shorter than Dicaprio.I think he dips a little under 5'10 more 177 than 178 in my opinion,perhaps his 5'10.5 is first thing out of bed,or evening height with standard 0.75-1" shoes?
[Editor Rob: dicaprio maybe wore lifts in films we didn't expect? I know for Aviator he had them, but who knows what other films?]
StopHijackingMyNick says on 2/Mar/14
peak still 5ft9.5
Paul177 says on 1/Mar/14
Rob, what do you see between him and Don Cheadle? I see 2 inches max.
[Editor Rob: they can look sometimes 2 inches, sometimes near 3 inches difference!]
Realist says on 1/Mar/14
174-175 peaking.
Dural says on 26/Feb/14
@MD
I said I see an inch and a half difference, not only half-an-inch. The second pic they are barefoot and it's a full body shot, that's why it's a decent pic. The third pic not so much, I admit.

@StopHijackingMyNick

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

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

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

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

tom says on 12/Feb/14
I don't think he's quite 5'10". If you look at the pictures on Brad Pitt's page on this site, he is 2 inches shorter than him at least, and the slippers Pitt is wearing can't be giving him that much of a lift. He looks comparable to my own build - wake up 178, go to bed 176 - if not slightly shorter. 5'10" isn't a crazy claim but he looks lower to me. Compare him to somebody like Michael C Hall and he doesn't look that tall.
jtm says on 11/Feb/14
dicaprio was barely taller than tom hardy. he is not 5'11.5.
176,2Tunman says 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 says on 7/Feb/14
correction, the passpoart says 175cm, so then he's a solid 5'9
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't pay as great attention to that until he changes his own claim to 5ft 9, but he's been saying 5ft 10 for a while.]
Dejavu says on 6/Feb/14
176 cm is closer to the truth
truth says on 6/Feb/14
Probably 5ft9.5.
Arch Stanton says on 4/Feb/14
He's not as small as you think but his stocky build makes you think he's 5 ft 8-5'8.5!. He's definitely not 5'8" range, but a case could certainly be made for 5'9" range.
chrisssss says on 2/Feb/14
Matt damon is 176cm, and in the bourne films they listed him 5'9 on his passport
Realist says on 1/Feb/14
Don Cheadle 170
Matt Damon 174(looks more cause he must be wearing a lift of about an inch)

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

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

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

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

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

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

Is this someting you can agree with, Rob? Surely you must be beginning to doubt this 5'10 listing for Damon?
dmeyer says on 22/Dec/13
Damon is a strong 177cm he dosnt dipp under 177cm like 5'9.75 probably wakes 179cm , not as short as 5'9.5/176.5cm , can pull of 5'10
Brad says on 20/Dec/13
Go to the barefoot boat shot with a 5' 7" Cheadle, 5' 10" is a joke.

MD says on 8/Dec/13
Really, I don't know how this 5'10" is holding. There has been more than enough proof these past few months to finally get him listed more realistically.
the shredder says on 7/Dec/13
5'9 , 5'9.5 is better than 5'10 or 5'8.5
Knowitall says on 6/Dec/13

He needs a downgrade to about 5'9 to 5'9.5.Many people would agree.

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

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

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

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

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

In the full body shots he is 5 inches under ben affleck. Definitely not over 5'10. I would bet that he is closer to 5'9
Arch Stanton says on 17/Oct/13
I've never seen proof that he's a lift wearer but at times he can even look 5'11" which is suspicious...
Arch Stanton says on 17/Oct/13
Actually Rhonda he looks 5'9" range in that photo! Affleck is 189cm, not 191-3 cm, he was claiming his shoe height when he said 6'3.5". I agree that Damon has to be near 5'10" but he often gives a short impression because of his stocky build. For some reason he gives off a 5'8" impression at times which he isn't.
jtm says on 14/Oct/13
maybe that's because affleck doesn't wear lifts?
Sam says on 14/Oct/13
In general Affleck looks about 4 inches taller than Damon.
Rhonda says on 13/Oct/13
The camera angle favours Ben, the backdrop word 'MOET' goes upwards favouring Ben's top of head, therefore camera angle favours Ben. I'm not saying Matt is any taller than a flat 5ft10. Im saying Ben is smaller than his 6ft3-4 claim. Their posture is the same, Ben is turned one way, Matt the other, feet one back one forward, Matt leans in to his right, his shoulder lower, Ben twists a bit, so any advantage is cancelled. The camera is closer to Ben as the angle favours him at his top of head height. Why does people exaggerate the taller guy and reduce the smaller? Clearly there would be 5-6 inches if we believe both their claims and not one photo shows this, and more if you don't buy his 5ft10 claim.
jtm says on 13/Oct/13
he is closer to the camera, better posture, and probably wearing lifts.
Rhonda says on 12/Oct/13
He has got to be 5ft10 178cm next to Ben Affleck. He makes Ben look 6ft1.

Frank says on 7/Oct/13
I think that this height for him is not bad, perhaps 177 cms would be closer, but not shorter.
Sometimes he has bad postures and he is not slim so perhaps he looks shorter in some moments or with rare angles in camera.
He is not tall of course but he is not short neither.
truth says on 26/Sep/13
I think he is 175cm at night flat, 177/178cm morning.
heightist says on 23/Sep/13
I don't think he's 5-10 because I've never heard of a real 5-10 guy getting called short unless it was for basketball or other sports....if he's 5-10 or close to 5-10 with big shoes on that's different
heightist says on 23/Sep/13
he was shorter than justin timberlake...Click Here

if he's 5-10 justin timberlake is 6 footand justin timberlake is really 5-10 because nash who measured at 6-1 w/o shoes was taller than justin by 3 inches...matt damon can't be more than 5-8 1/2
Silent d says on 17/Sep/13
MD next to sharlto copley, he looks 5 fo0t 9 at most. I can't see him as 5 foot 10. 5 foot 9.

He's a shade under 5'10 I think, 177 cm. I would be very surprised if he were to measure 5'7-8 range.

I know that it's not a good idea to compare seperate pictures, but look at this:

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

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

5' 9.25".

copley is more than 2 inches taller than damon even when he is not closer to the camera. damon is not 5'10 without his footwear.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Sep/13
It still baffles me that he was once listed here as 5ft10.75.
Did he claim 5ft11, Rob?
[Editor Rob: there has been a few years back one interview that put a 5ft 11 quote by him, but nearly every other has had him saying 5ft 10.]
Cnut the Great says on 4/Sep/13
He looks 5'9" on screen......... im 5'9" and look about the same as him height wise
Adam says on 3/Sep/13
Rob you have Shartlo Copley as 5'11.5, if he is this height then this pic proves Matt Damon is maximum 5'9.5: Click Here
truth179cm says on 29/Aug/13
yeah those pics are in Copleys favour. Go on Sharlto Copleys page and see the pics with him. He looks 5ft8 on this page but there he looks 5ft9 since he is equally closer to the camera. And Sharlto is more 180-181cm (no lower than that) and he looks 2 inches shorter. I would give him 175-176cm, no more.
jtm says on 28/Aug/13
looks like he forgot to wear his lifts on that day.
mlogan says on 27/Aug/13
By the pics with Sharlto Copley, 5ft 9inches may not be the case! With all things being equal, the shoes, lifts, a level ground surface etc. I think 5ft 8inches flat is accurate for Matt. Matt is really an average looking dude.
Jesiah says on 27/Aug/13
I've seen in one of the Bourne movies he was listed as 5 8, so I always thought that was his height in reality too.
shamrock says on 25/Aug/13
Flight Attendant alert : 5'10. Carried him on flight. Almost as tall as Jude Law. About the same as Brad Pitt.
mlogan says on 24/Aug/13
5' 9" flat is accurate -- that's flat. With shoes give an inch or two above that.
Brad says on 17/Aug/13
Pitt & Clooney always own him...he's never been 5 feet 10 in his life.
fuzzblaster says on 13/Aug/13
Saw him on a street in NYC. He was blabbing on a cell phone. He's def. at least 5'9" but not much more.
Conti says on 9/Aug/13
In Saving Private Ryan looked 5'8.5 in boots,so I'd say 5'7.5.
dmeyer says on 5/Aug/13
this guy has a stocky built and is happy with his height it wouldnt surprise me if he was a solid 5 ft 10
Bigpapi says on 5/Aug/13
Worked out at a local gym of mine for a summer. Defiantly in the 5 '10 range. Did not seem much shorter if he was.
cole says on 31/Jul/13
If he says 5'10 himself, he could be honest, and he could be 5'8-9 range (as 5'10 generally seems like the ideal height for 5'8 guys to claim). But let me be clear, I don't see him as a 5'8-er. I would say in the 5'9.5 - 5'10 range is what he generally looks next to fellow actors. So I wouldn't lable him as the worst liar out there.
Iceman says on 31/Jul/13
I do remember them listing Jason Bourne as 5'9" in the Bourne Identity. Damon barely looks taller then 5'8" Franka Potente when they are wearing similar footwear. I think 5'9" is a better listing for Damon. You can't base actors heights of how tall they look in movies. Heights can be easily manipulated with boxes and camera angles. Premiere photos are much better.
FA says on 29/Jul/13
@Yaspaa, Where does it say 5'9"? (show me proof)
Yaspaa says on 28/Jul/13
I wonder why he was listed as 5'9 in Bourne?
FA says on 25/Jul/13
Matt can't b under 178cm bcuz in Bourne Ultimatum, he was 1cm taller than paddy considine(who starred as simon ross. It seems like every guy who is 175-177cm range Matt Damon is taller than. 5'10" is a good listing. BTW paddy considine is listed 177cm on Robs site Click Here
Maio says on 23/Jul/13
I think he's 5 ft 9.5 in/177 cm, but he could be also 5 ft 9.25...
He's a kind of actor who wear heels...
Jones says on 22/Jul/13
@ Runt
Like it or not there are plenty of guys in the world who were blessed with height who will consider anything under 6 foot to be short. I agree it's stupid and cliche but it's true.
jtm says on 11/Jul/13
clooney and pitt are under 5'10. damon is under 5'9.
cole says on 10/Jul/13
I think his range is 176-177 cm, not the full 5'10. George Clooney is slightly taller, altough sometimes they can look even. 177-178 cm for Clooney, and 179 cm for Pitt.
Craig 177 says on 9/Jul/13
176 cm (5' 9.25"). 5' 10" really is a stretch, I must say. That's George Clooney and Jude Law territory.
Lorne says on 2/Jul/13
5ft9.75in. And Douglas looks to have lost serious height...
Sam says on 27/Jun/13
Only nearly reaching 5'10 in shoes (assuming he doesn't wear more than an inch heel), but barefoot I see a weak 5'9.

5'8.75 for Matt Damon.
Martin says on 26/Jun/13
He has stocky proportions so 5'10 seems too tall for him
superman says on 23/Jun/13
he lokke between 5'8 and 5'9 in good will hunting he never looked tall, he looke about same height as casey afleck who is liste at 5'9 on your site i really think matt damon is 5'9 what do u think rob? maybe even shorter nowadays?

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

truth178cm says on 25/May/13
Anything over 5ft9.5 at night is absurd. 5ft10 is an ok listing if it is earlier in the day. Matt is a solid 5ft9 but 5ft10 is Brad Pitt and George Clooney area.
truth178cm says on 24/May/13
between 5ft9 and 5ft10
Dirty Pitts says on 23/May/13
@the height man

Matt Damon, you're back here posting again. I give you an A for effort but you are clearly shorter then 5'10" Cloontang and much shorter then 5'11" Brad Pitt.
You are 5'9", which is not that bad a height.
Mr. R says on 22/May/13
Matt is a weak 5-9.
the height man says on 21/May/13
about 5'10.5. I thought he was 6'0
Dirty Pitts says on 18/May/13
5'9" tops, Damon and Cloontang are at best average height guys.

@ Lol, Matt Damon is that you?
Dmeyer says on 2/May/13
5'9.75 night height
Shell says on 12/Apr/13
I saw Matt Damon in Vegas while they were filming the first Oceans movie and I was surprised at how short he was. I'm a 5 ft 9 in woman and though I wasn't standing right next to him there is no way he is close to my height. I would say more like 5ft 7in and that is being generous. My friends and I saw many of the actors from that movie and they are all very short. I stood right next to Andy Garcia and I towered over him and I had flats on. Everytime I see an actor I'm always shocked at how short they are in real life. Everyone lies about their height, especially men. My son is 6ft 3in tall and he has stood next to men who claim to be 6ft 4in or 6ft 5in and he is taller than them.
Lol says on 10/Apr/13
I dont know Matt Damon but watching his movies he seems taller then 5'10

rob he doesn't look like a 5'10 bcoz a 5'10 guy looks tall , like micheal c hall

Damon is strong 5ft9 range 176-177cm.
Anonymous says on 12/Mar/13
I am sure Matt Damon is 177 out of bed and around 175.5-175.8 at night,Brad Pitt and George Clooney look more than 1 inch taller than him
Red 183 says on 10/Mar/13
59", maybe 59.5" def not taller
Reminds me a bit of Chris Jericho with his short body & big head
MaskDeMasque says on 18/Feb/13
I think 176cm is good for Damon. Looks a bit more than 5'9 flat but never looks 5'10.
TNTinCA says on 16/Feb/13
I actually met Matt Damon in Las Vegas about 10 years ago. I stand just under 5'10" (about 5'9.75") He did appear to be slightly taller than me, but it was hard to tell. Definately in the 177-178 range for Matt.
Silent d says on 10/Feb/13
176cm.
Balrog says on 8/Feb/13
Krasinski destroyed his claim. Damon can't be over 176 cm.
MarcusTheSwede says on 26/Jan/13
I really think Matt Damon is a great guy. But pictures and evidence point at same way. He is maximum 176cm not taller.
BarefootMatt says on 25/Jan/13
Sorry guys, met him in Malibu on the sand in California, no hidden shoe lifts. He is 5'8", if that. I'm 5'10", my son who is 5' recognized him. easily 2 inches shorter than me. Looks good for his height.
refresh says on 20/Jan/13
this guy is happy if he is 175 cm tall barefoot
The Eye says on 15/Jan/13
I happened to walk past Matt in Tribeca a few years ago when he was shooting the third Bourne film, within three feet of him on a flat road surface. We stood exactly eye to eye and I had the wherewithal at the time to look back and spot-check his shoes. Our soles were comparable. He's 5'9.5"
Brad says on 8/Jan/13
Bourne Booties, the chunky bricks to make him taller. As I've said so many times: look at him with Clooney & Pitt, at 5' 10" you don't owned like that.
Nothingman says on 8/Jan/13
In The Talented Mr. Ripley he sometimes looked as tall as Gwyneth Paltrow (who's listed as 5'10) and sometimes a bit taller, but that was due to camera angles, i think they wanted him to appear at least a little taller than the lady.
Trey says on 8/Jan/13
5'10 is overly generous. 5'9 range: 5'8.75 - 5'9.25.
truth says on 28/Dec/12
from 5ft8.25 to 5ft9 is fair.
Mathew says on 27/Dec/12
I see Damon as 175 - 176 cm range.
Lars says on 21/Dec/12
You are right shredder. 5'8 and 5'10 are garbage. Matt Damon is closer to 5'9. I'd say he's somewhere in the range 5'8.75 - 5'9.25.
Silent D says on 13/Dec/12
176cm at most.
Mr. R says on 13/Dec/12
I saw Matt the other night in Hwood at a screening of his new movie Promised Land. I could not get close to him, but comparing him to others who did, he is about 5-9.

No surprise, dale. I caught Jon Stewart on TV standing next to the Today Show staff and he was barely shorter than Matt Lauer.
dale says on 4/Dec/12
Today show 12/4/2012 - Matt Damon was guest and was at least 4-5" taller than the staff - including Matt Lauer, Savannah - compared to everyone on the set, Matt Damon was a giant! Damon is average - - not a midget like most actors.
The Exorcist says on 4/Dec/12
Here he is looking 5 inches shorter than (the debatable) 6'2.5 Ben Affleck. Note that Damon has a significant shoe advantage in this picture, also.

I think he's 5'9"-5'9.5 range.
Louis says on 30/Nov/12
I agree with 2cm difference between jude and matt, but i don't agree with 180 and 178
If celebrity claims 175 that is max
I can't imagine male celebrity downgrading himself
In my opinion jude is 175 max damon 173 max
leonari says on 30/Nov/12
Damon has much shorter limbs than Law and is much stockier even without bulking up. I can see why some think he is shorter than he actually is. I bet his wingspan is as much as 2 inches shorter than Law's.

It's exactly stories like this user "Departing" posts that ticks me off (and yeah sometimes I lose it-forgive me) . A pure average guy like Damon being described near 5'6"...I mean come on this BS has to stop at some point.
Departing says on 26/Nov/12
I somehow stumbled upon this site and it seems like the perfect place to get this off my chest. It's guys like Matt that give me the impression that the industry suffers from inflated stats! Having stood next to him while shuffling out of a theatre at the conclusion of a film at TIFF (Solitary Man - he wasn't in the film, but he was there to watch it), I, a mere 6'0" with shoes off, was struck by how short he was. My impression at the time was that he seemed no taller than my sister (5'6"), who shuffled by ahead of me. If he were to stretch that to 5'8", with shoes on, I might believe it, but 5'10" is a con. Like all anecdotal evidence, take it with a grain of salt, but I concur with the anonymous fan in the blurb: "Real short"
SAK says on 22/Nov/12
After watching Departed, he looks noticebly shorter then Baldwin(182cm) and DiCaprio(181cm). I think he is 176cm.
