Rob Lowe height: 5ft 10in (178 cm)

American actor best known for roles in films such as About Last Night, Wayne's World, The Outsiders, St Elmo's Fire, Austin Powers, Contact, Youngblood and TV series The West Wing. In the Huffington Post he talked about his height: "I'm 5-foot-11 and three-quarters, my favorite thing is that I won't let myself be 5-foot-11 ... I need that extra three-quarters. It's like a little kid who goes I'm 6 and a half ... just say 5-foot-11! There's no shame in it, but I want that three-quarters really, really badly because it almost gets me to 6 feet, and let's face it, that separates the men from the boys, as we all know."

After watching him in Parks and Rec and The West Wing. I think he's struggling with even 5'10"

Not a millimeter over what's listed, and I could see an argument made for something shorter.

Michael Jackson looked taller than him by almost an inch, so if MJ is 5'9", that makes Rob 5'8"-5'8.5" max.

If Jimmy Kimmel is 5'11.5" then Rob Lowe is 5'10". An easy 1.5 inches between them. You could only ever speculate lifts in either of them as I wouldn't have thought that the shoe difference would be significant. If Kimmel wears lifts then Rob could be what he claims. The trouble is, it seems that EVERYONE is wearing lifts these days! Even the over 6 footers I'd bet ;)

Yup 5'10 and not a mm over it. Must have measured in cowboyboots or something.
Art says on 4/Mar/15
Rob is't that quote a little ridiculous? Why would someone being 5'11 3/4 downgrade himself to 5'11"? That's just absurd. And he's making this whole speech about being 6 feet when he's not even close to that. This guy has large height issues...
[Editor Rob: maybe he is half-joking, but then maybe not! I always believe you should be as accurate as you can with height, up to a point. I know we talk about fractions, but in general most people will round.

It's easier if you use the metric system, then at worst if you round to the closest cm you will only be rounding 5mm...]

He looked 5'11 in old photos but now looks 5'10
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Jan/15
Rob, how old is that quote?
[Editor Rob: only from 2013]

Rob he looks over 5'10 with Ralph Macchio , more closer to 5 '11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Nov/14
Almost 6ft is insane but I wouldn't go under 5ft10.
Drew says on 16/Oct/14
From watching Parks and Rec, he never once looked below average to me. 5'10" seems like a good shout for him as he looked marginally taller than 5'9" Adam Scott in every scene they were in together.
Yaspaa says on 8/Sep/14
"probably lost an inch or so"... I don't think so.
mindfusion says on 12/Jul/14
Someone looks as good as him, any height would be fine. Good dude from fade away generation.
Mateo says on 8/Jun/14
Just walked by him at LAX he seemed really no more than 5'8.5" but he has probably lost an inch or so.
Dmeyer says on 8/Jun/14
I bélieve he measures 5'11.75 biker boots on i was barefeet. He was wearing bikers 1.7in type we were eye to eye
Az says on 4/May/14
Met him, spent an evening at a party with him. 5'10. Not short not as tall as my 5'11 brother.
ian says on 25/Feb/14
No ****ing way. Chris Pratt towers over him.
Knowitall says on 8/Dec/13
Closer to five-nine.
the shredder says on 6/Dec/13
Patrick always look the tallest on The Outsiders.
MD says on 6/Dec/13
With Jimmy Kimmel, who is listed 5'11.5", here, but who I feel can't be over 5'11" flat:

Officially, Rob Lowe 5'11. Patrick Swayze - 5'10. I'd say he looks a good two inches shorter than Swayze, not an inch taller! Look through some pics from Youngblood(1986). You be the judge. I say 5'9 at very best
Ted says on 3/Dec/13
5'10" seems spot-on for him. It's what he's always looked throughout his career.

Kind of funny that Lowe would be so specific in his "5'11 3/4" claim. I've noticed more celebs doing this lately... probably in order to make the public go, "Oh, well, they gave their height to the quarter-inch! So it MUST be legit!". LOL. Not.

Ashley Hinshaw is another example of this, claiming her height as a very specific "5' 7 1/4", when, in About Cherry, she is consistently towered by 5'8" Heather Graham. Go figure.

Bottom line: Extreme specificity in a claim means nothing. Intent is all.
avi says on 29/Nov/13
Well the 5'11.75 is definitely from shoes in morning . Maybe he was in 1.5 inch shoes or something. 5'10 maybe 5'10.25 but he looked 5'10 next to bill O'Reilly
Gregorovich says on 25/Oct/13
His official website used to say 5'10". The website has been renovated, and it has no mention of his height as far as I can tell. He's putting out the 5'11" 3/4 to sell an image for Hollywood. He looks around 5'10," which is still good height.
Yvette says on 18/Oct/13
I saw Rob a few years ago. I'm 5'10 and he is about my height. Maybe and that's a big maybe he is a little taller but not shorter.

"It’s like a little kid who goes I'm 6 and a half ... just say 5-foot-11!"
So according to Mr. Rob Lowe, a 6'0.5 guy should just say 5'11? Well that makes absolutely no sense.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 13/Oct/13
5ft10.5/179cm is possible, IMO
RisingForce says on 15/Sep/13
Good find on the quote, Rob. Always find height quotes interesting as I'm sure you noticed. Would have thought Lowe would have tried a 5'11" flat claim.
Sam says on 8/Sep/13
Made his morning height claim while wearing shoes.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Sep/13
I can believe 5ft10 and change but 5ft11.75 is crazy. McConnaughey and Crowe on the other hand I do think are 5ft11 guys that claim their morning heights.
cole says on 2/Sep/13
Why would he give that whole speach about how much it means to him to be 5'11.75 if he's only 5'10? There is no reason to lie about being 182, which is a really weird height to lie about being to begin with. He's a really good actor though, I'll give him that.
linke says on 29/Jul/13
He needs his 3/4 cuz he's 5'9.75
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 23/Jul/13
Rob,, is 179cm a possibility?
[Editor Rob: it wasn't an impossibility like 5ft 11.75]
Editor Rob says on 19/Jul/13
This guy has been hanging out with Matthew McConaughey and has joined the ranks of celebrities who claim 5ft 11 and 3/4!
Allon says on 18/Mar/13
Saw him on Californiacation last night & looked a good 2-3 inches shorter than David Duchovny but in Rob's defense he was barefoot the whole show. I think Rob's dead on on his height. Now if we could just get him & David D. barefoot next to each other that would seal it.
penguinboy25 says on 14/Mar/13
Looks 5'9.5 next to 6'0 NFL WR Reggie Wayne who measured bang on 6'0 at the nfl combine.
John says on 11/Sep/12
yh right shaun, 6'2 thats far from perfect. it don't look good. 5'10 is my ideal height.
