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

American actor best known for roles in films such as About Last Night, Wayne's World and tv series The West Wing. In the Huffington Post he said 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."

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.

"probably lost an inch or so"... I don't think so.

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.

Met him, spent an evening at a party with him. 5'10. Not short not as tall as my 5'11 brother.
lelman says on 3/Apr/14
So this is a 5'9.5 guy, claiming 5'11.75? Holy crap, he obviously wanted to claim 6 but thought it was too much.

No ****ing way. Chris Pratt towers over him.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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
