Emil 183 cm says on 29/Jan/15
His absolute lowest could be 183 cm imo, so 184 is fair enough
Shamrock says on 25/Jan/15
i haven't seen a single photo of cranston and perlman together where cranston looks taller without having a serious camera advantage.
Appe4 says on 21/Jan/15
He has the frame of a strong 6'0 footer, but I don t think he can be 184-185 in the afternoon
Odessa says on 17/Jan/15
But take a close look at Ron Perlman. He doesn't really seem to be that tall.There are pictures where he appears shorter than Bryan Cranston who is said to be around 5'10 1/2. I do not think Perlman hits 6 foot these days.
Shamrock says on 16/Jan/15
@Tom183: completely agree, he's the same height or slightly taller than Ron Perlman.
Tom183 says on 16/Jan/15
People on this sight have short man syndrome I swear. Gosling is 6'0.5, maybe even a weak 6'1. Anyone who says he's less than 6'0 are kidding themselves.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 26/Dec/14
5'10.75", 179-180cm.
Bran says on 18/Nov/14
182 is technically more 5'11.5 than 6 foot. I believe it's something like 5'11.65 to be more precise. As I stated earlier, I think he is closer to that based on the time I met him. He wasn't much taller than me at 5'10.5(plus a little less than an inch given my nike shoes). He was wearing boots that I'm sure had about a standard inch of heel. My 6'3 roommate was quite notably taller and he was in very flat, small heeled converse. Of course, it is a bit tricky to tell height based on your own eye level perspective. He is definitely near 6 foot, be it slightly under or slightly over.
austin says on 14/Nov/14
Look at him in crazy stupid love! Next to steve carell he barely looks 3 inches taller, if carell is really 175cm, then gosling is a 182cm, still 6ft tall, but not 184cm
Chris says on 1/Nov/14
People are ridiculous. He's not under 6ft, not even at night. This listing seems spot on.
cole says on 13/Oct/14
@jtm: Yeah I wouldn't call him a sloucher. Like most people he can probably relax and drop a little at times, but in general he's a guy who stands with good posture for pics etc.
jtm says on 12/Oct/14
there is nothing wrong with his posture. seems like people use that excuse with anyone that isn't tom cruise or brad pitt.
Hugochavezbodydouble says on 11/Oct/14
Good listing. Tallish guy with a typical body build for his height. Does seem to slouch quite a lot, which probably explains why so many people get the impression he's shorter.
cole says on 11/Oct/14
@Jay 184cm: Yeah he'd probably measure a little over 6ft, even though he can look just 6ft flat at times. 6'0.25 would maybe be my best guess at the moment - but he's a guy who can change my opinion entirely, depending on who I see him with - it's annoying.
Jay 184cm says on 9/Oct/14
@cole Exactly right. He has long legs. No one has legs that long and comes in under 6-foot. He's no shorter than 183cm. I think 184cm is spot on.
cole says on 8/Oct/14
@Editor Rob: Mind using the pic from his weight page as his pic here? Or find a new one?
[Editor Rob: I'll use that one here]

182cm no taller, look at him next to steve carell

Proportions are a trivial matter as far as measured height goes, but I have to point this out: he seems to have some long ass tibias for a man around 6ft! There are goddamn forums dedicatet to Gosling's tibias lol. His torso seems quite short/average in comparison. It doesn't really matter much for his measured height though, but I'd maybe be a little shocked to see a guy under 6ft with legs like that!
truth178cm says on 7/Oct/14
Just about 6ft0, perfect male aryan specimen (no homo).
jtm says on 5/Oct/14
closer to 5'11 than 6'1.
Jay 184cm says on 3/Oct/14
He looks the exact same height as Billy Zane in that photo just below. I think Rob is spot on with his 184cm listing. People who keep mentioning Crazy Stupid Love - in films, you will often find directors will try to bridge a gap between actors of different heights using angles and other tricks. They do it all the time. It doesn't mean Gosling is not that much taller than Carrell - he clearly has at least 3 inches on him when you look around at photos.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Oct/14
Zane's 6ft0½(184cm) listing is solid. There's enough evidence out there of him clearing out 5ft11-6ft range guys. I'd even argue a weak 6ft1 for him. Gosling looks 6ft1¼(186cm) beside Zane but like you said we don't know what's going on in the shoe department. The picture of him with Ryan Reynolds is a bit dodgy aswell.

Many of these aren't good enough to argue, as we can't see footwear, but it's hard to find those really good full body shots of Ryan to compare him with others. But he can often look just 6ft flat or even a little under (with Carrell and Reynolds for example).
anon says on 2/Oct/14
i just watched stupid crazy love, and i tbh rob he really struggles to be 3.5 inches taller than steve carrell who's a debatable 5'9 at best. The difference between them is about 2-2.5 inches at most. Also frankly although his slim he has a somewhat diminutive figure, not really long arms, narrow shoulders which aren't really in proportion with a (nearly) 6'!" man. I think hes a strong 5'11" barefoot. Click Here
TJE says on 1/Oct/14
More like 6'0.25.

O'Gorman looks about 4-4.5in shorter than Aidan (who might have a tiny bit bigger heel) so he's about 5'6.
Footwear is unnkown in some O'Gorman and Gosling pics though and most of them ar small, grainy and from bad a bad angle - but what do you think?
cole says on 28/Sep/14
@Mon: He looked 6ft flat with Ferrell on stage. That backstage pic where you can't see footwear is useless.
Mon says on 27/Sep/14
He is consistently around an inch taller than Ron Perlman, both walking and at premieres which means Gosling must be around an inch taller than someone who is close to a flat six foot tall. So he is a strong 6 to a weak 6'1' with his normal posture. Going by how he looked next to Will Ferrell, Gosling is much closer to six one than a flat six. Gosling is not a rock solid 6'1'', but he is as close to six one as makes not a lot of difference.
Max says on 24/Aug/14
Ok stop, in crazy stupid love steve carell(who is MAX 175cm) stood barefoot with him and looked barely 3 inches shorter, im not joking, you guys can search for it! Gosling isn't 184cm. He's max 183cm
SAMMY DERRICK says on 23/Aug/14
RYAN GOSLING:6'0(183CM)
CHANNING TATUM:6'0(183CM)
CHRIS EVANS:6'0(183CM)
The current male sex symbols are 6'0,but they have a 6'1 vibe
Mon says on 20/Aug/14
In that photo Goosling looks to be standing tall, probably because he is standing next to a strong 6'3'' actor. Anyway, Gosling looks a very solid 6ft 0.5in next to Sorbo. If Gosling is only that now, he was fully grown by nineteen. However that would be youngish to attain full adult height, early twenties is more likely. I think with good posture he is 6ft 0.75in.
Handsome says on 15/Aug/14
Lol Rob, How Tall is Kevin Sorbo?
[Editor Rob: a little over 6ft 3]
Handsome says on 14/Aug/14
Rob, Do You Have Any Idea How Tall Ryan Gosling Was When He was 19.
[Editor Rob: he was filming young hercules at age 18-19 and looked fully grown, you can see him near Kevin sorbo here at a convention way back at that time.]
Jay says on 12/Aug/14
183-184cm seems spot on for Gosling to me. I'm a fraction over 184cm in the morning and looking at all the pictures of him, his body shape etc, we basically look the same height to me. A couple of people seem to say "No way is he 6'1"..." but that's not what 184cm is - it's 6ft 0.5in. Saying that, in the photo with 6'3" Ferrell, you can argue a case for him looking 6'1" as there looks to be only a 2-inch difference. Based on most photographic evidence, I'd call him a solid 183-184cm.
Adam says on 7/Aug/14
Rob, You Think That Bradley Cooper is Taller Than Ryan Gosling, Because I Think He Has About an Inch on Ryan.
Abdullah says on 4/Aug/14
Rob, You Think He'd be About Just 180 cm, I Mean I've Met Him And I'm 182 cm, He Looked About An Inch Shorter Than Me. What do You Think, Doesn't Really Look A Tall Guy.
[Editor Rob: I'd be surprised if he was just 180cm]
J51 says on 1/Aug/14
Mon, your whole argument seems to be based on one scene in one film. Perhaps you should look at other evidence, as well as take in some first-hand experiences others are sharing? So, since a few of us seem to be sharing stories of meetings and whatnot, I saw him pretty regularly for a while when he was filming The Place Beyond the Pines as I worked nearby and he is 5'11 in my book. I'm 6'0 (measured fall last year when I was ill) and there is absolutely no question that he was shorter than me. I met him more than once on a straight, flat, side-walk. I was just wearing my work shoes (Church's) and he was wearing his costume boots which I would say made him 5'11.5 as there was still a little difference. Another time I met him was when I was in my running shoes, he in his sandals and if that meeting didn't confirm his height as under 6'0 for me, nothing will
Mon says on 25/Jul/14
Anyone around normal height who sees a 6'3'' man will swear he is at least 6'4''. Watch the racetrack meet scene of 'Drive' Cranston looks really small next to Gosling who can't possibly be under 6 foot, not unless he had serious lifts in Drive.
Miiiiiiighty_- says on 21/Jul/14
To me Gosling looks like a classic guy that is 182cm but appears taller due to his lean/slender "crossbow" like bodytype
B-ran says on 9/Jul/14
I also would think that Ron Perlman would be a taller guy...but in pics he looks the same height(and sometimes shorted) as disputed 5'10.5 - 5'11 Bryan Cranston. He is an older man, and appears to have a slouched posture, so that is indeed a factor to consider. Ryan Gosling is a hard one to pinpoint indeed. The best evidence I have is my own encounter, but I know that carries no credibility in an online discussion, so I do not blame you for your doubts. All in all, I see Perlman being around 5'10.5 - 5'11...at least that is how he is appearing in current pics with 5'10 - 5'11 range actors. He is an older man and probably doesnt have the greatest posture either.
B-ran says on 9/Jul/14
I will say, he absolutely towers over 178cm listed vithaya pansringarm in pictures...but I know he cannot be a full 5'10 after having met Gosling before. He was not nearly that much taller than me. I'll add a bit of lee way and say 6'0 is a possibility, but he really did not strike the impression of a 6'1 range dude at all. My 6'3 roommate was considerably taller than him. At least 3 inches and he always wears converse.
Mon says on 8/Jul/14
It's going to be confusing giving a heights the way B-ran and and Hu are doing. I'll just say the person gosling has lowish standard footwear on most occasions. By the way 'boots' nowadays, like the ones Gosling usually wears, quite often have no more than standard one inch heels. Anyway, someone with relaxed posture who never looks less tall than Ron Perlman can not be under six foot tall.
B-ran says on 6/Jul/14
Met him in Austin once...I'm just around 5'10 1/4 on the dot and he was wearing boots and he was hardly an inch taller than me in my nike shoes(they make me about 5'11...maybe a hair over, I've measured). I'm going to say he is 5'11 1/2 barefoot and around 6.05 - 6'1 in boots.
Mon says on 5/Jul/14
You are saying, whether you mean to or not, that Ryan Gosling is an inch under six foot tall. But there is no question Gosling is taller than Ron Perlman, thereby downgrading Ron a further half inch. So now you've got a 5'10.5 Ron Perlman, which is not credible.
Hu says on 4/Jul/14
So in short - just in case what I am suggesting wasn't clear - a few of the height listings on here are an inch or so out of place, including Ryan Gosling's. But of course, that's just my opinion. But it's an opinion that's based on first-hand experience and clear evidence
Hu says on 4/Jul/14
I don't think Perlman is 6'0 to be honest. At the Drive premiere (I assume you're talking about this one) he is pictured to be either the same height or - at a slouch - shorter than 5'10 Albert Brooks. Heck, even Cranston is listed on here as 5'10.5 and he's shorter than all three of them at the premiere. 6'2 Refn towers over them. Gosling's back is straight as an arrow nine times out of ten and he clearly suffers from sloping shoulders, it's what gives him a slimmer appearance compared to his actual weight and muscle mass. Also, Gosling wears boots occasionally at premieres - most notably his Lost River one - where he appears taller than the casual posture of 5'11 Matt Smith who's wearing loafers
Mon says on 3/Jul/14
Hu, anyone who has 'Drive' and watches the racetrack scene where Bryan Cranston and Gosling walk together knows it can't possibly be true that with equal footwear Gosling is only half an inch taller than 5'10.5 Cranston, which is what you seem to be saying. Before he bulked up for the kickboxing role, it could be see Gosling's shoulders slouch, the scapula being carried somewhat 'winged', which is is no kind of military posture. Yet Gosling was consistently (at premieres and on set) visibly a half an inch taller than six foot Ron Perlman. I, like most people, assume a given height is the standing tall height.
cole says on 1/Jul/14
Oh great, now neither of the links are working...
cole says on 30/Jun/14
In some of these recent shoots he's having with 5'11.5 Matt Smith (among others), Ryan is wearing bigger footwear, like this: Click Here So take that into account if you find some good pics from this event. This is Matt's footwear: Click Here So far I've not found any pics worth a comparison of him and Smith...
Hu says on 27/Jun/14
Sloucher? Gosling has one of the best postures in Hollywood. Soldier-like. He walked past me about a month back, I'm 5'10.5 and was wearing Converse, he was wearing his black boots(Canadian parade boots, in my opinion) I'd say he's 5'11, 6'0 in boots. There was about an inch separating us. I've never really thought of him as being 'tall' or anything. Just regular height
Mon says on 25/Jun/14
He can't be downgraded a quarter of a inch that he would have with normal posture. Photos at premieres get taken from weird angles some seem to be taken from much higher than you would think look at Larry Holmes, Wladimir Klitschko and Gerry Cooney at a premiere, The relative heights in the various pics are all over the place. Also some people wear dress shoes with substantial heels some don't. Gosling seems to be a bit of a rebel as regards outfits at premiers (he wore what looked to me like actual work clothes to one). Having said that, Gosling looks slightly under 6 foot next to Albert Brooks (in massive shoes) and Bryan Cranston both listed as 5'10''. But then again where you can see Gosling looking under 6 foot as he did at the premiere of Drive his heels are always extremely low for dress shoes. Two who met him put his height at 5'11'' or a flat six foot. As he is a sloucher in low shoes he is likely being underestimated
mike says on 23/Jun/14
Ryan Gosling height: 6ft 0.25in (184 cm)

needs a .25 downgrade.
Joe says on 20/Jun/14
Weak 6'.
cole says on 12/Jun/14
@Editor Rob: Since he can look between 6' and 6'0.5, wouldn't 6'0.25 be a fair compromise, and just go with that? I think 6ft even would be the best, as I rarely see him much over it, but 6'0.25 could be OK.
[Editor Rob: I think for the moment his current listing is ok, but you definitely wouldn't rule out 6ft 0.25 as equally possible.]

Matt - 182cm

Alex says on 22/May/14
@cole Yes, at all these pictures it's hard to judge correctly, but I can clearly to see a difference even with bad postures and positions, not big but at least 1-2 cm. I hope too=)
cole says on 22/May/14
@Alex: I didn't see a lot of usable shots in that search to argue much, mostly just pics of Matt in thinner footwear standing in his usual care free stance, and Gosling standing quite some distance away from him. Hope there'll be a couple of decent full body shots of just Gosling and Matt soon. My bet is they would look pretty close, Gosling most likely having the edge.
Alex says on 22/May/14
At photos he looks 0.75" taller then Matt Smith

So 6'0.25-5" should be right
Batman says on 10/May/14
Hey Rob, what do you think of his head size? 9.5in or something like that? maybe 9.75?
[Editor Rob: in that range is likely]
cole says on 3/May/14
One with Clooney I hadn't seen before: Click Here
Most of the shots of them together is either not full body or they have some sort of distortion to them. The difference in the various shots can go from looking like Gosling barely having the edge on Clooney to Gosling looking about 1.5-2 inches taller...
cole says on 26/Apr/14
@Editor Rob: Mind adding a picture to his page?
Mon says on 26/Apr/14
He has a small torso and does minimise his upper body posture-wise, but his overall proportions (head to total height), look to be that of a man taller that a flat 6. That's true even when he is barefoot, which hardly suggests boosted footwear Everything looks very compatible with him being comfortably over six foot. Look at him walking with Eva Mendes, with her in 3 inch heels their kneecaps were at the same height. On the rare occasion she didn't wear really high heels, her head was barely above his shoulder. No question he is shorter that 6'3'' Will Ferrell*, based on a sketch they did, but anyone can see Ferrell can't have anything like a clear 3 inches of height on Gosling. Laughable that Gosling could be under 6 foot. He is 6'1'' with rather poor carriage costing him an inch or so.

(*Why are so many comedians seriously tall?)
cole says on 24/Apr/14
It's safe to say you could argue between 6' and 6'0.5. I think he has looked a weak 6ft / very strong 5'11 one or two times, but he's probably a decent 183 cm range guy if measured - 6ft nothing or a fraction above it. 6ft even is what he looks to me most of the time.

No need to even mention 187-188 cm range. That's just... not even close...
Mon says on 23/Apr/14
Clooney has a bit of a thing about his stature, it shows in his self deprecating jokes. He clowned for photos with Stacy Keibler at the Golden Globe awards (getting her to step off a platform so he towered over her). I think tall people get him joking like that. But would a 6ft 0.5in Gosling?

Seahawksfan, I think he is a strong 6'1'' with NORMAL actor's posture. Alongside Cranston, Gosling wasn't strainedly standing tall he was in motion just walking relaxedly. He really has consistantly minimising posture for a leading man. The neck and shoulders are carried low, and he bends forward at the waist a little bit when he walks too. There is a quick shot of him from the side walking in the scene in Drive where he steals a car from the street.
Mon says on 18/Apr/14
Another close look at Drive: in garage at the beginning of Drive when Gosling collects the car from Cranstone, Gosling is further from the camera as they walk, but seems to have more than 2 inches on Cranston. And at the race track he definitely does, despite the fact that Gosling's head is down looking down while taking off his gloves as they walk to meet Brooks's character. Gosling does not have a big framed upper body (narrow shoulders) so I was too hasty about his 150 lb at the age of 29 ruling out 6'1''. Conclusion: an under the radar rock solid 6'1''. Clooney would hardly be calling an actor over 6 foot 'a lot smaller than you would think' except as an ironic reference to his own surprise at how tall Gosling actually is.
[Editor Rob: Clooney tells the truth on Gosling]
Mon says on 17/Apr/14
Gosling added a clear inch on the other photo just because he had to take one hand out of the jacket to put it on Gyllenhaal's shoulder. It shows that, like I said, he lives in a slouch. Difficult to believe he was wearing substantially heeled dress shoes with that jacket n' jeans ensemble . With perfect posture a weak 6'2'' is a possibility. I think he is a solid 6'1''.
Mon says on 16/Apr/14
For an leading man Gosling doesn't stand very straight. Someone with a lot o' neck and a bit of a slouch can easily conceal nearly an inch of real height; Gosling is young enough that he proly hasn't permanently lost height through though habitual bad posture . Unlikely someone who doesn't bother standing tall uses footwear boosting dress shoes at premieres. I think he may be very very near six one if he was to use the kind of posture that actors routinely do use. Gosling looks very much closer to 6'1'' than 6' while facing Biberi in the park scene of Drive. Moreover, Gosling uses his trademark in this film of keeping his hands in the pocket of his jacket so he has no posture advantage over Biberi. And Biberi, listed at 6'4'', has thick soled trainers on, while Gosling has low heel shoes. Yet I can't see Gosling being any more than 3 inches shorter. With the kind of posture that Charles Bronson used, Gosling might be able to deploy a reserve half an inch, making him as near a full 6'1'' as makes no difference. So I would not rule it out.
chrisssss says on 12/Apr/14
a weak 182cm max, no more, when steve carrel stood by him he wasn't much taller in crazy, stupid, love. A weak 182cm. 184cm is too much
SAK says on 9/Apr/14
He hovers around 183-184cm depending on time of day.

I do believe he looked about 1.5-1.75 in shorter than 6'2" Ryan Reynolds.

As I said in this post before, my boyfriend and I met Gosling and he was just about the same height as my boyfriend who is (barefoot) 6' tall. My boyfriend was wrapping vans and Gosling was wearing sandals. He is between 5'11 and 6'. My boyfriend's height is not a guess, I've seen him measured at the hospital before he had knee surgery, BAREFOOT. People, please take my word for it.
Arch Stanton says on 18/Feb/14
Rob can you add the Ides of March? Spot on, looks just under 6'1" next to Philip Seymour Hoffman.

I feel the height u list him at is his height out of bed.. True barefeet hight is a solid 5' 11.75".. 6ft flat is possible
lelman says on 28/Jan/14
Bradley Cooper is about half an inch taller than Gosling, given all of the evidence. Sometimes they look the same height, sometimes Cooper looks a bit taller, VERY RARELY does Gosling look taller than Cooper (you can cherry pick photos/videos as much as you like).

Gosling: 5'11.5" - 6'0"
Cooper: 6'0" - 6'0.5"

182-183cm could be it though.

Looked not much taller than steve carrel! Id say he's 181cm , max 182-183
Mon says on 24/Dec/13
Oops, a correction, he says he was 150 lb at the age of 29 so he can't be 6'1''. Very slender and hence looks taller onscreen than he is, seems to be the explanation. Cranston plays his character in Drive with a stoop.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 21/Dec/13
Probably 186cm out of bed
James says on 19/Dec/13
@Mon

Interesting points and il make sure I go and have a look through Drive again at the scenes you mention. The problem is with people like Gosling is thay there height is all over, however not so as much as the blatent lift wearing Bradley Cooper, which shoes the potential variation in footwear, if you watch crazy stupid love Gosling honestly looks 181 flat with Carrel directly face to face, it's a scene where Carrel is barefoot and Gosling has shoe's on and it's the only
point where Gosling looks 6ft.
Mon says on 18/Dec/13
In the racecar scene where Gosling and Cranston are shown full length in the walk to meet Brooks, Gosling has a very comfortable two inches on Cranston who he makes look small. While I agree Christina Hendricks in motion is very distracting, image search James Biberi. I have Drive, and in the meet scene Gosling stands straighter than in any other scene (to face off Biberi's towering goon). Biberi is taller no question, but based on that scene Gosling could be 5ft 11.25 only if his parachute failed to open. 5' 8½ Oscar Isaac is in the scene too and he is dwarfed by Gosling. Ryan Gosling is 6'½'' in his usual slouch. 6'1'' if he carries himself with normal actor's bearing (*ie perfectly upright). Someone trying to steal a little height is going to stand straight before he goes for boosting footwear, Clooney was being ironic.
James says on 17/Dec/13
@Mon

A simple image search will show you that Gosling is nowhere near 2 inches taller than Cranston. As for that scene you cannot base her walking behind him as a good basis to argue his height, remember when people walk they bob up and down as such and that can give or take 2 inches easily. Gosling with 5ft 9 Steve Carrel in Crazy Stupid Love is all the evidence you need that Gosling is around 181. Solid 5ft 11.25 guy, probably a tad over 6ft out of bed.
Mon says on 16/Dec/13
From how Gosling dwarfed her while she was footwear boosted in 'Drive', I thought Christina Hendricks was short until I looked at her page on this site. Clooney was being ironic. Gosling is a habitual sloucher who doesn't care.
Mon says on 16/Dec/13
A solid 6'1'' sloucher who may approach 6'2'' with perfect posture. In 'Drive' has more than 2 inches on 5'10.5 Bryan Cranston in every scene. In the park meet scene in 'Drive' 5'7'' Christina Hendricks (who it can be seen is wearing 2-3 inch high heels) starts close to camera and walks behind him and he is has to have at least 2.5 inches inches on her. Again in the park meet scene he is not that much smaller than James Biberi (who claims 6'4'').
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 5/Dec/13
Somewhere in the 6ft-6ft1 range.

George Clooney on Gosling, "What you don’t know is that [Ryan] is much shorter in real life. When you see him — if you see him — he’s wearing huge heels… like Louboutins!”

Click Here

He initially looks like a guy who would be about 5'10 - 5'11, but he actually looks considerably taller than Clooney (5'10.75) in pictures. I think Clooney is likely closer to 5'10. Gosling at 6'0 - 6'1 seems about right, but I could also see him at 5'11. Tough to pin down with footwear.

Looking at all the pictures of Gosling and Cooper, you get the impression that they are closer in height than some of the oft-posted ones that seem to show Cooper as inches taller. I think it is possible that Cooper is a tad taller than Gosling but not by a whole lot.
gsbr says on 5/Nov/13
@Lando

Gosling has poor posture in both of those images. When Cooper shows bad posture, Gosling is taller. And when they both stand up straight, their eye level is the same.

@truth: Generally I feel the 180 cm flat is maybe too low a guess, but he has looked it at times, so that's why I mentioned it as the lowest height he has ever appeared (at least to me). Realisticly though I'd say he could be a 6ft flat guy, with a chance of 182 cm, like Balrog said.

That picture has too many variables. Gosling and Carell are at an angle, neither of them are standing straight, Carell is closer to the camera, and Gosling is lowering his head.

Click Here

Click Here

While the angles in these pictures aren't the greatest either, they both have Gosling standing face to face with another actor. In the former, he's taller than the 182 cm David Strathairn, and in the latter, he's taller than the 183 cm Christian Bale.

And in a full body shot with the 184 cm Bradley Cooper, they're pretty much the same height.

Both Cooper and Gosling are 6'0" to me with a chance of 182cm but Cooper always has big footwear.
cole says on 18/Oct/13
@Sean: I agree. What's your estimations on Gosling and Cooper?

Since I'm not anywhere near 100% positive, my "roughly-estimations" would be:
Gosling: 5'11 at worst - 6'0 at best.
Cooper: 5'11.5 at worst - 6'0.5 at best.

Personally I am in the dark when it comes to pegging both Ryan and Bradley at a height they can consistantly look (as is the case with a large amount of celebs). To me they both seem to vary so much (In Cooper's case that could be down to footwear and camera-angles, in Gosling's case it could be down to posture and camera-angles) - from looking barely over 5'11 (Gosling with Carell; on screen - Cooper with Shepard; off screen) - to clearing the 6ft mark by some margin (Gosling with Carell; off screen - Cooper with Shepard; on screen).

It largely depends though on who they are standing next to, and wheter or not I believe that the height those people are listed is reasonable or not. And the various differences in footwear, posture etc. doesn't exactly make it any easier. So being 100% accurate is impossible. In the end it's all a bunch of guess-work, at least until you see an actual, legit measurement.

In any case I just feel like the listed 6ft 0.5in is a bit too much for Gosling - to me he generally gives a shorter impression. It might be something Cooper could measure at some point - in my opinion that would be early on.
Sean says on 16/Oct/13
@Cole Yeah, you're probably right, assuming they're wearing equal footwear, Cooper's probably about half an inch taller, no more than a full inch.
cole says on 8/Oct/13
Sean says on 4/Oct/13
@cole, take a look at the floor in the pictures and compare it with the line you drew.

Yeah I just noticed that as well... Still I think they would measure similarly, Cooper probably a little bit taller.

@James: It's hard to be 100% acurate when the picture is a tad unclear, though. But the point was to prove that they appear similar, and at the sime time try to hinder that someone will try to say for example: "Cooper is at least 1.5in taller than Gosling", or something like that. Looking at that picture you're not able to say that one is noticably taller than the other.
James says on 25/Sep/13
@Cole

Decent picture, although the one on the left you have been way to generous with Cooper in regards to the top of his head under the hair. Tad generous with Gosling with the one on the right.

Anyway it just shows Cooper's footwear as there are many other pictures where he has a solid inch on Gosling. Cooper definetly like's sizeable heels and possible lifts. Gosling's footwear always seems normal to me. Cooper is 182, Gosling is 181. Both decent heights but Cooper greatly exagerates this.
cole says on 22/Sep/13
For those of you who didn't watch the video I posted of Ryan and Cooper, who in the future will try to prove Cooper is much taller than Gosling by bringing up some useless, distorted pics: I took a few screenshots from that video, and they look more or less dead on equal in height. I think this is as good as it gets when it comes to proving who is taller. If one is taller than the other, it would be by a tiny amount of millimeters, unless ofcourse one of them has stronger footwear.

Click Here

They should be listed the same, which they already are. Though their listings now seems to me like a bit of a stretch. 6ft flat, like I've already said a few times, is an agreeable shout for the both of them. But they can look shorter than that, more often than taller, so that would be the highest I'd argue (6ft).
Pierre says on 15/Sep/13
Will Ferrell is a solid 6ft3(191cm) and in the knife guys sketch on Jimmy Kimmel, Ryan looks a solid 6ft1(185cm) when standing next to Will, also when next to Jimmy himself, they're the exact same height 6ft1(185cm)
cole says on 14/Sep/13
From what reasonably clear evidence I've seen, Gosling and Cooper could measure very close. Cooper, when not in strong footwear comes off as a 183 cm guy to me, the same with Gosling (who granted can appear shorter at times) so to list them both at 6ft flat would be something I could agree on. 184 cm as barefoot mid-day/evening height I don't agree with. I imagine they both touch around the 182,2-5+ cm mark in the late evening.
amanda says on 14/Sep/13
Hi Giuseppe. He was wearing sandals but they were only about half an inch in thickness. My boyfriend is 6 foot tall bare foot (no shoes). Hope that helps.
gsbr says on 12/Sep/13
@James

What evidence do you have? An image of Gosling actually on his tiptoes has yet to be posted. Considering how he's leaning into Carell in that picture, he'd have some serious problems standing if he was also tiptoeing.

Besides, it would be counterproductive for Gosling to simultaneously tiptoe and lean into another individual. Whatever height advantage he would get from being on his tiptoes would be lost due to his bad posture.
cole says on 10/Sep/13

What do you think Rob?

I can't quite make out their footwear in this one, but they look rather similar in height. Derek Cianfrance (the guy on the mic) is reported to be 5'10, maybe a little bit shorter (does someone have an estimation on him?) and from what I could see, Ryan had about 2 inches or so on him in that brief moment they were next to eachother, and Derek stood straight (which is quite rare really, as he's a sloucher, whilst Ryan nearly allways has impeccable posture).

We can't see the feet at all, there are photo's down below which show Gosling at the same event but he's on his tip toes or stood on something. That difference is no where near 3 1/2 inches anyway, more like 2 1/4. The photo with Gosling on his tiptoes/stood on something he only looks 6ft next to Carrel, take away his advantage he's 181 max. Poor evidence.

This proves Gosling is over 182 cm. He's giving Carrel every advantage and he's still taller. Besides, the difference between them is three and a half inches. They're not that far apart in height.

@Cole

I'm not entirley convinced Ryan looks taller there, I know the camera angles a tricky one but I think they're either the same height or Paul just edges him. Paul also has a tad slightly more relaxed posture (neck wise) maybe loses a Cm.
cole says on 5/Sep/13
183 cm normally seems about reasonable for Gosling. But that "be better than the gap" scene, in 'Crazy, Stupid Love' where Ryan is in dress shoes, and Carell is barefoot, makes me doubt it. Ryan only looks about 8 cm or so taller in that scene. He's wearing the Givenchy Wingtips, which is supposed to have about a 1" heel. So if Carell is 5'9, and Gosling looks 6' wearing a shoe that has a 1" heel, he would be around 5'11 barefoot wouldn't he? It might not be all that straight forward in reality, but I thought it was interesting. What do you think Rob?

This is just an example to show that he can look the same height as Paul Schneider (from Parks And Recreation etc), it's not usable to argue their spot on heights, but it can give you a usable range. I have seen some shots of them where Ryan could maybe look 2 cm or so taller. Paul is listed 5'11.5 some places, and 5'11 on other sites. On Parks And Rec he didn't look much over 5'11 next to Nick Offerman, Rob Lowe and Adam Scott to me, maybe 181 cm. So again, I think Ryan is 183 cm max.
James says on 1/Sep/13
@Jake

He can look that, but have you seen many of his movies? Like Len stated, he tends to look 5ft 11 in most things, Steve Carrel pretty much kills off any chance Gosling has of being over 181cm.

He's either on his tip toes or stood on something there, its hard to tell, but he's gaining a BIG advantage doing it and in comparison to Steve Carrel still only looks 6ft. Take away the advantage and he's no more than 181. The Thinker's photo also supports 181.

I think Ryan Gosling should be around 5'11" -5'11.25" (180-181cm range)...
Sain\'t says on 23/Aug/13
People at 6'0"-1" certianly get alot of grief.
James says on 22/Aug/13
After watching Crazy, Stupid, Love I would peg Gosling at 181cm Max. His height varies alot in the film, for example when Emma Stone is in Heels Gosling seems to appear exactly the same amount taller as he does when she's not in heels.

There is a scene in the film where we see Goslings footwear, completely normal 1 inch Heel, he then proceeds to throw Carrel's footwear away and only then looks a solid 6ft guy. As soon as Carrel is back in footwear the difference is only around 6cm. There are lots of good points in the film for accurate height comparisons.
Dmeyer says on 21/Aug/13
More chance 6'0.75 than 6 fr 0
cole says on 21/Aug/13
@Editor Rob: Ok. If we think that Carell is 175 cm range, and look at the video I posted at June 30th, where Ryan and Steve is stood infront of a camera, promoting Crazy Stupid Love, Ryan again looks about 183 cm range. But his posture is not that consistent and he's doing a lot of funny movements, so it's harder to tell.

There are however some usable moments in that video that suggests Ryan is around 7 or 8 cm taller. At times Steve may look a wee bit under 5'9. 5'9 flat would be the absolute most I could see him at, and in return, 6' is the most I could see for Ryan Gosling, based on that.

I'll post the video again so you can judge for yourself: Click Here
cole says on 20/Aug/13
@Lando: I'd say about 4 cm, he's bending a bit so the difference might be 5 cm or so if both stood tall. 182-183 cm range is still my guess for Gosling.

lelman says on 19/Aug/13
I would say 6' is more likely than 5'10". Just a fraction over 5'11", in my opionion. Always looks slightly taller than 5'10-11" guys.

Really though, I could see him being 6 foot up straight in the morning, so Rob's listing seems fair to me. Anywhere from 5'11.25" - 6'.5".
cole says on 18/Aug/13
Click Here

You sure he's not 182-183 cm range, Rob? I mean he does seem to have almost every advantage possible in this particular shot. From the looks of it, he's got bigger footwear, and he's closer to the camera. At least I think he should be take down from the 184 cm mark. 183 cm would be better.
[Editor Rob: 183 isn't an impossibility, it's the lowest I'd argue though]
MaskDeMasque says on 17/Aug/13
5'11, 5'11.5 max. I've seen quite a few Gosling films now and he looks above average but never tall.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 13/Aug/13
Tempest's 5'10.75" estimate for Gosling is spot on. He consistently looks 180cm, next to Cranston, Brooks, Carell, Clooney, Reynolds etc. I think he should at least be downgraded to 5'11.5", and even that is generous. No way this guy is a legit 6'.
cole says on 12/Aug/13
@Lando: Michael Pitt is 5'10.5 range I think. Look at him with 5'8ish Steve Buscemi in Boardwalk Empire, and you'll see that he could be in the 178-179 cm range. In Murder by Numbers Pitt did seem shorter than Gosling by a bit, can't quite remember by how much though.

But this is more interesting. Michael in converse, leaning, and Gosling in large heeled boots. What do you make of this Rob?: Click Here
[Editor Rob: harder to say in a shot like that]

What about the movie "murder by numbers" with him and Michael Pitt? Pitt is listed as 180cm and seems a fair bit shorter than him. They are barely eye to eye.
Tempest says on 11/Aug/13
I'll say 5'10.75" is Gosling's height. I said 5'10.5" in the past rounding down. He's 5'11" max. I don't understand how he's at 6'.5", let alone the 6'1" he was at. It's been so obvious to me that he's upper 5'10" range just by looking at his body and proportions.
kid says on 11/Aug/13
In Crazy, Stupid, Love, Steve Carell is barefoot and Ryan has shoes on and he only look about an inch to two max taller than Steve.
cole says on 9/Aug/13
@Lando: Is he tipoeing in that last one though? It's kind of har to tell. But Max is a 5'9.5 range guy, and Gosling doesn't look over 6ft next to him. And IF he is in fact tiptoeing in that shot, he's under 6ft for sure.

But I can't see much more than 5-6 cm between Ryan and Max, in that pic anyways. So Ryan looks 182-183 cm range. I would say 6ft is the absolute max for Gosling. I've said it before and I'll say it again; 6'0.5 is at least .5" too generous.

I met Ryan in 2008 when he was in Ontario. Nice guy, but a little awkward.

I've also met a few other actors who claim to be taller than they are. People always add inches. I am guessed to be 5'7 ALL the time, but I'm exactly 5'5. Sorry for rambling, anyway this time it was right, he is 6'.

cole says on 17/Jul/13
@Chameleon:
I've seen many of his movies, and I think he can look anywhere from 5'11 to 6'. In Crazy Stupid Love he looked 5'11 at times. In Gangster Squad next to legit 6'1 flat Sullivan Stapleton, Ryan looked more than just 1 cm shorter. In Lars And The Real girl he looked basically the same height as 5'11.5 Paul Schneider. And I've seen him look about the same height as 6' Billy Zane, and close in height with 6' Cliff Curtis.

This is why I think he could be 5'11.5. But I am not ruling out 5'11 or 6', as that is the range I see him in, no shorter than 5'11 and no taller than 6'.

How about that downgrade Rob? Let's say 6' or 6'0.25 (183 cm) ;)

On a non-height-related issue; did any of you notice his voice in Gangster Squad? I was watching it the other day and it really bugged me. And I also realized that he's not that good of an actor. Don't get me wrong here, he's not bad, but in my opinion, he doesn't really deserve all the hype...
cole says on 13/Jul/13
Okay. So. Will he be lowered to 6ft in the future? Starting slowly by taking off 0.25" from this listing perhaps?

You have to agree that he generally seems a tad shorter than Bradley Cooper, and if he's held at 6'0.5 it would make sense to at least lower Ryan to 6'0.25, eventhough personally I highly doubt he'd measure a millimeter over 183 cm.

It didn't look like Steve Carell fell off a box or anything when Ryan pushed him, so I'm assuming that they are standing on level ground. If Carell is 5'9, I don't think Gosling looks more than 5'11.5. Carell even looks shorter than 5'9 at times, especially next to Ed Helms and Timothy Olyphant on The Office. Ryan can't be 6'0.5.
cole says on 27/Jun/13
@Sam: I feel the same. 182-183 cm is fine for Gosling, and he doesn't quite look like a 180 cm flat. I just think 184 is overdoing it, as he is a fraction shorter than Cooper, whom I doubt is 184 himself. The fact that he also looks within 4-5 cm of 5'10 guys, sometimes even less than that, tell's me that he is not as close to 6'1 as suggested. Around 182 cm is what I think he would measure mid-day, but he'd probably measure 183 cm at some point anyway, so that's a more fair listing (6ft) than 6'0.5.
Chameleon says on 27/Jun/13
Exactly bulgvar, he is 180cm.
Sam says on 26/Jun/13
I feel that Gosling's righat around 183 cm after all the pictures and seeing him next to Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, Jimmy Kimmel, etc. To me 185 cm is too much but 180 cm is cutting a low.
bulgvar says on 24/Jun/13
This guy is nothing more than 180, maybe 181. Look him up in "Crazy, Stupid, Love". There's a scene where him and barefeet Steve Carell stand together. Not to mention Ryan's shoes, which give him a lot of advantage. There's no more than 5 cm between them.

Rob, I know you are not thinking about downgrading him to 182 cm, as you seem to think he is 183-184 cm, and I am fine with that, as I agree he can look a strong 183 cm at times. But you have also said it before, that you think he can look just 183 cm at times. Personally I am dead set on 182 cm for Gosling, as that is what I think he looks most of the time, at least not taller than 183 cm. You can see it clearly next to confirmed 5'10-11 guys like Fassbender and Clooney for example, that he really isn't that much taller than them. I think it would be more fair, and more accurate if he were to be dongraded to 6ft flat, or at least take away .25" and call it 6ft 0.25in (183 cm). Optimally I would have listed him 5'11.5 or 5'11.75, although I don't think you see him at that height.
Silent d says on 22/Jun/13
I can't see him taller than 182cm. Maybe shorter. I am not convinced next to 175cm steve carrel.
jtm says on 21/Jun/13
still think he is closer to 5'11.
Cole says on 19/Jun/13
Hmm.. Ryan doesn't really look much more than 5'11 here, with 5'5.5 listed Dustin Hoffman, who might actually be shorter than that:

Also he looks about 5, not 7 cm, taller than 177ish Max Minghella: Click Here

182 cm is perfect for Gosling, 183 cm at most,

cole says on 19/Jun/13
@Guiseppe: Those pics look quite deceiving, yeah. In reality I think they are pretty close in height, but neither is a genuine 6'0.5 imo. Generally I think Bradley might look marginally taller.. 182,5~183 cm, and 181,5~182 cm for Gosling.

Seeing Gosling with 180 cm tops Fassbender, backstage, with bigger footwear, and still only looking 1-2 cm taller at most just totally excludes this 184 cm listing for me, not believable. Rob, surely you must considerate a slight downgrade? Recent evidence shows he really doesn't look the full 6'0.5.
klem says on 19/Jun/13
@Giuseppe

Those pictures are really funny. Ryan looks 3-4 cm under Bradley. But there are more photos from same event where Ryan looks 1-2 cm taller, he is a bit closer to the camera with better posture. if you just google "ryan gosling bradley cooper" for images.
I can't explain that...
Maybe, Bradley is tip-toing on some of them, where we can't see the shoes.

I would give gosling 182-183 and bradley 184..
Arch Stanton says on 19/Jun/13
LOL did you hear about the guy who had $10,000 surgery to look like Gosling? Crazy. Like Robert Pattinson and Channing Tatum, I really don't get what women (and guys) see in him. He's pretty skinny, with a face which reminds me of McCauley Culkin and Nicholas Lindhurst.I guess he looks pretty good overall and has a cool style and air about him, but it amazes me that women would even consider those guys in the same looks league as some of the other guys in Hollywood like Manganiello, Hemsworth brothers etc. The cosmetic surgeon said about "Hollywood facial perfection" being guys like Gisling and Rob Lowe, I can see what he means with Rob Lowe, but Gosling has rather a long nose and eyes too close together, but each unto his own..
Mr. R says on 19/Jun/13
I actually saw the movie Brad and Ryan did tonight called "The Place Beyond the Pines". Sadly, they only have one scene together, but they never stand next to each other.

Tempest says on 11/Apr/13
I think it's crazy how some of you really believe that he's 6' or more.

Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper: Click Here

He's 5'10" range. Look how diminutive his body looks next to 6' Cooper. Look at the big heels. Cooper 5'11.5" - 6'. Gosling 5'10" - 5'10.5".

I've seen that one before, and I don't think it's at a good enough angle to claim anything spot on. I for example, had a picture with my 5'11.5 cousin, from a similar angle to that one, I am 5'11 and I looked 2 cm taller than him. A photo from a bad angle can disturb the reality by 4 cm or more at times, it really doens't take much more than a slight change of angle to make someone shorter appear taller than someone who is actually a good bit taller.

And even from that same set of pictures you can find examples where Gosling actually looks taller than Cooper, but I don't think that's the case, they look very close in height as Rob also seem to think. But what I cannot really believe is that they are both close to 184-185 cm, they both look shorter than that too often imo, next to for example 6'2 Dax Shepard and 6'2 Will Ferrell. I'd imagine Bradley would measure about 182,5 cm at some point of the day, and Gosling possibly 181,5 or close to 182 cm flat.

Check my latest post with behind the scenes photos of Gosling and Fassbender, and see that there's clearly not 4 cm between the two, if anything they could look the same height when Gosling as slightly bigger footwear.

Here's a couple of pics that show them closer in height, but of course you can't be entirely sure of footwear-advantages etc.:

Footwear: Click Here and Click Here
They are both wearing some kind of boots it seems, Gosling's has a more suspicious look though.
Giuseppe says on 18/Jun/13
Hello Cole. Thank you for publishing photos. Obviously I agree with you. Fassbender and 'top 180 and in photographs wearing flat shoes.
In fact, without taking into account the heels of Gosling, the difference can not be 4 cm. Also, if Ryan really was 184 cm, it would explain the difference there is with Bradley Cooper (185). Check if you want and let me know.

Can't quite see the 4 cm difference in these photos...
Fassbender is no taller than 180 cm. Gosling might be dropping a bit of posture in some of these photos, dropping down to Fassbender's level. But Fassbender also has a footwear-disadvantage in some of them, so it's kind of hard to tell. Gosling could maybe be 2 cm taller from what I see, definitely not 4.
Giuseppe says on 14/Jun/13
Apart from the photo with Steve Carrel. I do not understand why no one takes into consideration the photos that show Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper (185cm). You notice so clear in fact that between Bradley (185cm) and Ryan (184cm??) The difference is not 1cm but much more. Also check yourself and let me know.
Giuseppe says on 14/Jun/13
You're right Chrissss the photos that show Ryan with Steve Carrel (175cm), show that there is no difference between the two 9cm.
cole says on 9/Jun/13
Seen a few sites giving 182,88 cm as well, I think he would measure around that mark early in the day.
Frank says on 8/Jun/13
Looking several pics and with my experience i would tell that Gosling probably is 182-183 cms
chrissss says on 8/Jun/13
Ryan gosling is not 6'1, u can tell, steve carrel is almost his height and he never appears that tall ,id say he's 5'11(180-181) maximum just 6ft(182) but id say he's 181cm for sure
cole says on 6/Jun/13
In gangster squad he looks reasonably close to Robert Patrick, 2 maybe 3 cm taller at most. Patrick I'd peg at 179 cm, so 181-182 for Gosling.
Jax says on 26/May/13
at first I thought he was a legit 6feet flat man, but in crazy stupid love there was a scene where he stood next to weak 5'6 emma stone (she was in barefeet) and he didnt look 6ft at all....Id say 181-182cm is spot on,... about the same height as bradley cooper
Balrog says on 18/May/13
Dude's 6 feet tall or close to it. Not buying under 182 for him.
gsbr says on 14/May/13
If someone could provide actual evidence of him tiptoeing, I'd love to see it.

In the meantime, he's still taller than the 182 cm David Strathairn.

Alex says on 14/May/13
Look at this photo Click Here if Nerf 6"2 then Ryan should be exactly 6"0 no less.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 13/May/13
Some people on here estimate him at 5'10" flat but I think that might be pushing it a bit. I'd guess him between 5'10.5" (179cm) and 5'11.5" (182cm). But he does tiptoe a lot.
Chameleon says on 13/May/13
He's 180cm
gsbr says on 13/May/13
Nobody here is claiming he's 6'1" or 6'2". This listing is actually lower than his "official" height of 6'1" and people still argue it's too high.

I couldn't find any good images of Gosling and Carell together, though I did find one where Gosling is leaning into Carell and he's still clearly taller.

Click Here

And maybe the angle isn't the best, but he sure looks taller than Christian Bale here.

Click Here
Luther6ft says on 13/May/13
He often looks about 184-185 cm I'll give him that, but he's not that tall barefoot. Gosling was shorter than 184 cm Kellan Lutz, he looked at most 182-183 cm with 188 cm Dax Sheppard, and he's taller than Gosling. 180-182 cm range for Gosling, he looks it with 187-188 cm Ryan Ryenolds and Will Ferrell as well. But of corse it would mean downgrading a host of other actors as well, and obviously that's not going to happen.
John says on 12/May/13
Gosling often looks taller due to his slim build and long limbs, but the truth is he's about 5'11. Which isn't short anyway - that's still slightly above average and nothing to be ashamed of - but there's no way in hell he's the 6'1 or 6'2 some people here are claiming. Look at him in Place Beyond the Pines on his motorbike (easier to see the overall dimensions there), or look at him compared to Steve Carell in Crazy Stupid Love: even with lifts, 5'8 Carell should appear a few inches shorter than Gosling if he's really over six feet tall, but they're barely two inches apart. I would say 5 '11 to 6' flat is a good guesstimate - same for Cooper.
penguinboy25 says on 12/May/13
I agree with many of the listings on this site but this isn't one of them. I don't even think Cooper is 184. In my opinion Gosling is on the low side of 5'11. I think Cooper is about 6'0 flat.
gsbr says on 9/May/13
Gosling's feet are on the ground. The "tiptoeing" argument people keep using is ridiculous. And anyways, if he was trying to get an edge on the other actors, he wouldn't be leaning forward. That'll cost you an inch.
John says on 7/May/13
Cooper and Gosling are the same height, both around 6 feet. Cooper might seem taller sometimes because of his bodybuilt; though both of them seem to be in a really good shape, Gosling is way thinner than Cooper. That's why Cooper looks taller sometimes. But both of them are basically the same height.
A Jeffrey says on 7/May/13
You're right Tempest, I was more indicating that Perlman, alongside 5'10 Brooks and Cranston (highly probable 5'9), is wrongly listed at 6'0 and that he's more 5'11. Gosling is a 5'10 guy in my eyes, he's tiptoeing for that extra inch.
tmx says on 7/May/13
Conclusive photo in my opinion. Cranston and Brooks are definitely around 5'10 or below, no more. And Perlman around 5'11, no less. Gosling within the 5'10-5'10.5 range, as seen below tiptoeing to get the edge on 5'10 guys. Standing on his own he can look 5'11/6' because of his features, but full-length body photos with other celebs expose him very often
gsbr says on 7/May/13
I love everyone says Gosling is tiptoeing (which I sure don't see in that photo) while nobody mentions Brooks is straining his posture.

Besides, that photo is at an angle. Here's Gosling and Perlman both looking straight at the camera and Gosling is taller.

Giuseppe says on 6/May/13
I agree with Jeffrey and I wonder why no one realizes this. Ryan looks 5.11
Tempest says on 30/Apr/13
And in all honesty Ron Perlman doesn't look 6'. He looks closer to 5'11", but that's just me. It might just be his big head.
A Jeffrey says on 28/Apr/13

Gosling is taller than Kimmel and they have the same footwear on.

If anything, Gosling has the proportions of someone over six feet. He possesses a long, tall (as some would call it) face you'd expect an imposing figure to have.
Chameleon says on 18/Apr/13
Jimmy Kimmel is 180 max and so is Ryan..
gsbr says on 17/Apr/13
Gosling will never be downgraded because he is 184 cm. In the photo with Cooper, he's slouching and leaning to his left. Here's another full body shot of Gosling and Cooper- they're practically the same height:

Click Here
Guy says on 16/Apr/13
This guy is one fascinating height specimen. In every photo he seems to look a slightly different height. He doesn't have the proportions of someone 6' or above and in the photos where he looks that tall his proportions are off I.e. his shins look weirdly long.

I would bet my bottom $10 that he's a frequent lift wearer and we just haven't caught it yet. He really looks 5'11 to me and with lifts makes him hover close to 6'1, just like Brad Pitt.
Robert says on 15/Apr/13
Thanks for posting the photo that shows next to Ryan Bradley. I agree with Tempest, Ryan can not be 185cm
John says on 13/Apr/13
Rob, who do you think is taller: Ryan Gosling or Bradley Cooper??
[Editor Rob: cooper can give the taller impression at times, but I think they are very close.]
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 13/Apr/13
Tempest is right, I wouldn't rule out 5'10" range for Gosling. The pictures where Gosling is the same height as Cooper don't show their full body, so Gosling might be tiptoeing like he often does. In the full body shots he is clearly shorter than Cooper.

In addition he looked only a fraction taller than 5'10" guys Bryan Cranston and Albert Brooks. The evidence is clear, downgrade is needed.

182cm MAX, probably 180cm flat, maybe even 179cm.
Double E says on 11/Apr/13

Listen to HEW.
Look at the picture HEW listed with 5 feet ten guys. There is no way Gosling is 183cm much smaller.Look at picture Hew listed with the guys besides him. Evidence shows he is not taller then five ten. Look at pictures there are no height diffrence similiar footwear and same postures all of them. Evidence blows all youre speculations out of the way. Time for a downgrade.
Robert says on 8/Apr/13
After the recent film, I saw some pictures of Ryan Gosling alongside Bradley Cooper (1.85) and I think that Ryan is much lower. Someone could post some pictures that portrays them together? thanks
Nate says on 5/Apr/13
Gosling is a tall man. Met the guy just 1 month ago at Miami International Airport and had the same judgement that many people do on this page. I believed he was no taller than 6'. I thought I was 5'11.5-.75 and man he had like 1.5 inch on me at least. My immediate thought was that he was 6'1 but then i got measured on a stadiometer and I ended up 5'11.25...My input? the guy is no less than 6'05.
Anonym says on 3/Apr/13
It seems like most of people here have height complex themselves telling that actors are so much smaller than they really are...Gosling is definitely 184-185cm
penguinboy25 says on 30/Mar/13
I don't know. 184 is pushing it. Does this guy ever walk or do anything without wearing boots?
Anonymous says on 23/Mar/13
he's 6'1''. just out of emerson, worked on drive (will be honest... i was a glorified bitch, getting even the camera men water, or whatever they requested. i was the bitch on set).

honest, i'm 188 cm barefoot. know i was wearing my converse all stars then (i went through a decade long phase wearing them...) and i did get to speak to R. Gosling a couple times ("can i get you something?" the answer was always "no, i'm good"... nice guy). anyway, he was wearing very low sole boot type shoes for the movie, these weird white boots, but they did not have soles. and he is very close to my height. i think you probably have the height correct on this site, but he may be 6'1''.. he's definitely nowhere under 6 foot and half an inch. trust me--big guy. also, a lot bigger muscle wise than you would think. he's not a little man. probably a solid 190 lb.
Tempest says on 20/Mar/13
Yeah, looks 5'10.5" with Will Ferrell. Rob's either not changing some of these heights to spite the more observant height guessers, or he's getting paid to make actors "taller". Just my opinion - take it or leave it.
gsbr says on 19/Mar/13
The amount of downgrading this guy gets is ridiculous. He's taller than Ron Perlman, who's listed as 6' here. He's taller than the 5'11.5" David Strathairn and the 6' Cliff Curtis in Fracture. Will Ferrel is closer to 6'3" than 6'2". This listing is spot on.
Miiiiiiighty_l- says on 19/Mar/13

Hew says on 9/Feb/13
Also, seeing him in the movie Fracture with 6ft (183 cm) Cliff Curtis he shorter. And with 5'11.5 (182 cm) listed Paul Schneider in the movie Lars And The Real Girl, he looked the same height or slightly shorter.

Seriously, this should be enough to seal his fate as "not-a-6'0.5-guy".

In what universe is there a 6 cm difference between him and the 5'10-guys surrounding him?
Hew says on 8/Feb/13
I agree he can look 6ft at times. But with guys like Anthony Mackie, George Clooney, Steve Carell and Bryan Cranston, even you who redicule a 5'11ish listing have to agree; he doesn't look 6'0.5 with those guys. He's 5'11 at least and 6ft at most, either way, 6'0.5 is just too much.
Balrog says on 7/Feb/13

Balrog: I know it's not ideal, but it's as good as any of the pics being used to argue this inflated listing. The pics with Cranston are good, and with other 5'10ish people proving he's no more than 2-3 cm taller than most of them. 182 cm is the most I could see Gosling at. And Silent d: Brolin is absolutely 100% not 178 cm, more like 175.
Silent d says on 18/Jan/13
182cm. A little taller than 178cm josh brolin. He doesn't look like a guy shorter than 182cm.

After seeing Ferrell with Federer, Craig Robinson, John C. Reilly and others he strikes me as a 6'1.5/75-guy at most. He certainly wasn't 6 cm taller than Federer, more like 2 cm max. Ryan looks 5'11-range if 6'1.5/75 is correct for Will. But if Will really is 6'3 (hihgly doubtful imo), Ryan is around 6'0.5 as listed.

Stephen says on 11/Jan/13
183.5 Gosling 184.5 Cooper
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 11/Jan/13
I agree a downgrade to 182cm for Gosling would be fair. I still think 180 flat is the most likely height for him, but I wouldn't argue if he were to be downgraded to 182. In my opinion the 179-182cm range covers this guy, he's somewhere in that range.

Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 8/Jan/13
Chameleon is right, Gosling looks 180cm flat next to Carell, Cranston, Brooks, Reynolds etc. I could live with a 182cm listing for him, weak 6', but anything over that is pure upgrading.
Trey says on 8/Jan/13
There's an early picture where he look even, give or take 1 cm, in height with Billy Zane. Can't see their footwear though. Maybe he's 182-183 cm after all. At least 184 cm I can't see.
Trey says on 7/Jan/13
I agree with Chameleon. Looks 180 cm a lot. Can argue from 180-183 cm. 184 is too high anyways imo.
Lo sgozzatore says on 7/Jan/13
This time i gotta agree with Rob, i saw some photos and he look 6' range a lot. Maybe 6'0.5 is a bit too much, but he generally doesnt look under 6'.
Balrog says on 7/Jan/13
I agree with editor Rob.
Chameleon says on 7/Jan/13
but Rob we cant see the floor/footwear. In that pic he does look 6' range.. but in all the other shots posted even the full body ones he appears like a legit 180 guy all the time, as he does in every scene in the movie crazy stupid love which exposes him even more. Nor did he look 6' with Reynolds.
Chameleon says on 7/Jan/13
Sorry Balrog, but he has 2 inches at best on Carell. And it has nothing to do with confusing angles in their shots together.
[Editor Rob: remember there was a shot were he was with tom felton. You can certainly argue he doesn't appear over 6 foot, but as low as a 5ft 11 guy i'm not convinced of.]

He is likely a bit over 6'0". He IS tall and had inches on Albert Brooks in Drive. Albert Brooks, although appearing to have a short build, is average height.

Rob is correct. Gosling and Bradley Cooper appear to be around the same height:

Not buying 5'11'' flat for him, looks taller than this in pics, around 6'0'' like Bradley Cooper and I'll bet Ryan is a smidge taller than him because Cooper most of the time is holding good posture.

Think what you want, but roughly 5'11 fits for both of them when you look at the evidence. In my mind Ed Helms is pretty pinned down at 5'11.25 (might be 5'11.5 with his best posture), looked it with Kurtwood, Riley and others, Cooper was the same height or shorter when barefoot. He also looks no taller than 6ft with Kellan Lutz, and shorter than 6ft with Dax Shepard.

Gosling with Steve Carell, George Clooney, Bryan Cranston and Evan Rachel Wood proves 6'0.5 is very, very generous, unless (and this is so unlikely I have no idea why I'm even mentioning it) everyone around him is wearing lifts... 5'11

Trey says on 28/Dec/12
Both Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper seems to be very keen on appearing taller than they really are by every means necessary, making it almost impossible to pin down an accurate height for either one.

But for now I am going with 180 cm for Ryan Gosling, because he looks it with 5'8/9-guys like Carell and 5'10-guys like Bryan Cranston and George Clooney. I'm tempted to go for 180 cm for Cooper to as he actually looked shorter than Ed Helms at one point in Hangover 2(see the scene from when they are barefoot in the monastery. 181 cm for Helms - looks it with every co-star in Cedar Rapids and The Office). The only time Cooper edges Helms is when Helms walks around in flat shoes like vans, and Cooper has on a pair of boots or other types of heeled shoes. Other than that they look dead on even, if not Helms looking the marginally taller guy. It's just something to be on the lookout for when watching Hangover 2: Cooper in boots, Helms in vans and the barefoot scenes.
Height specialist says on 27/Dec/12
I agree Trey a solid 5'11" no more
Trey says on 27/Dec/12
There's SO many horrible pics out there of Gosling, being used to argue his real height. The tiptoeing and boots suggest he has a bit of a height complex, for some reason. He's probably 5'11, but with his lean frame, and with the right footwear, he pulls off 6'0.5. I don't trust any listing until I see JUST ONE solid pic of him, as a whole, looking around 6'1. As for now, the only pics of that nature are the ones making him look around 5'11, which in return is what I'm currently estimating him at.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 26/Dec/12
Rob, after seeing those pictures of Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper next to each other, surely you have to admit their listings don't make sense anymore? This site lists both Gosling and Cooper at 184, yet Gosling was shorter than Cooper. At least one of these two listings is wrong. Personally I think both listings are wrong, they're both shorter than 184cm. I could buy Gosling at 180cm and Cooper at 182cm.
[Editor Rob: you can find a taller one...

the ones with cooper taller than gosling have camera distortion aswell.]
Trey says on 26/Dec/12
Rob I more or less always agree with your listings, but this one you've got wrong. I just don't know what has gotten you to belive he's this close to 6'1. With Carell, with Cranston, with Cooper, with Clooney and with Gyllenhaal he looks nothing over 180-181 cm.
Chameleon says on 20/Dec/12
No way hes over 180cm!!
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 19/Dec/12
From what I've seen of him, he is 180cm at best.
klem says on 17/Dec/12
It's really hard to tell with 5-11 to 6-1 guys. I was recently taken a few picture at high-school anniversary. On a few pictures I look almost 2 inches taller than my friend who is very close to my height , I can't really tell if he is 1 cm shorter or we are the same. I also look as tall as my 6-1 friend, whom I personally measured at 6-1 in the afternoon.
Than on another picture first friend (who is probably same height as me or shorter) looks 0.5 inch taller as I am bit hunched forward, but not that significantly. So it is really hard to tell.
I am also wearing pretty solid 1 inch shoes while friends could only be wearing 0.75 inch.
What I am saying is you can't really judge height by pictures, a little looser posture can make you look as much 2 inches shorter and it is not even that obvious.
MaskDeMasque says on 16/Dec/12
@Jake

5'11 guys can easily look 6' in films though with all the fancy angles. Look at pics with Ryan next to Steve Carrel, there is no more than a 2 inch difference and Carrel is def not taller than 5'9.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 9/Dec/12
If Ryan Gosling saw Jake's " 6' flat at worst " comments I'm sure the 180cm at best actor would chortle.

Between 5'11'' and 6'0''.

Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 18/Nov/12
Jake: 182.9 cm -- 183.5 cm says on 8/Nov/12
Under 6ft is fallacious for Gosling. He'd be minimum 1.83 m.
___________________________________

Jake you're delusional. Look at viapto's picture, Gosling is definitely below 6'. Gosling at 6' would imply Bradley Cooper at 6'1.5"+ which is insane.

I'm even starting to doubt 5'11"/180cm for Gosling. He can't be over 180 even by a hair.
richkid123 says on 17/Nov/12
5'11" for Gosling is kinda ridiculous. solid six footer
MaskDeMasque says on 17/Nov/12
@viapto

he looks 2 inches smaller than 184cm listed cooper there. that would make him a strong 5'10. weird, i always thought gosling looked a strong 5'11.
WalkingTall 6ft 3.25in says on 17/Nov/12
No way he is 184cm,he's more like a strong 5'11''.His body frame tells a lot because it corresponds to an average tall person.I'm surprised that Rob thinks he's actually 6'0.5''.

Excellent pictures Trey, Gosling is a textbook example of a 180cm guy. Bradley Cooper is 182cm.
Trey says on 3/Nov/12
His barefoot height is 1.80m at best. I am 100% convinced.

There is no more than 1-2 cm difference between him and Bryan Cranston, who is 1.78m at best these days.

So what is the purpose of all these downgrades? I can only see the usefulness if 6 ft 0.5 in (184 cm) will be changed, so why is there still incorrect information?
[Editor Rob:
the only person who can truly say 'that is incorrect' is the person who measures an actor. Everybody is just offering their own estimations on celebs.]
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 27/Oct/12
Gosling's height has to be in the 179-182cm range. Most likely 180-181cm, a flat 5'11".
Hew says on 26/Oct/12
Click Here

This is one of the few pictures from this set where you see their feet, they are equally close to the camera - no one has the advantage, they also seem to have equal footwear, maybe Cooper has a bigger heel. Proves that Gosing tiptoes at times, and that Cooper is a bit taller.

Gosling looks 5´10 - Cooper looks 6´0.
[Editor Rob: I think there is a bit of perspective distortion in a shot like that]
Silent D says on 25/Oct/12
Everyone should calm down. 182cm.
Hew says on 25/Oct/12
Take a look at this: Click Here

Looks like they´re both standing on firm ground? What´s your take on this Rob?
My opinion is that, if Steve is really 5´9, which I doubt, Ryan Can´t be 6´0.5. Personally, I think Steve is closer to 5´8.

There is also this: Click Here

Ryan Gosling is not any taller than a legit 180cm.
Hew says on 23/Oct/12
Dick says on 22/Oct/12
I believe he is at least 6 feet. Look to this picture: Click Here

Emma Stone is 168 cm. She wears at least 10 cm/ 4 inches heels. That would me make her 178 cm. If Ryan Gosling is in the 5'10" - 5'11" range, he would be close to Emma, though he is obvious taller. Of course he wears shoes with a heel too, but they don't seem shoes that will make him transform from 179 cm to 184 cm.

Logically, you are right on the money with your statement, but Emma Stone is 165 cm (5´5), so she´s close to 175 cm (5´9) with the heels. Ryan looks to have a 1.25" (3 cm) heel, so if he was really 184 cm tall, he would be around 187 cm with the shoes, and Emma should still have been underneath his eyelevel. She´s at the middle of his forehead, so 184 cm barefoot for Gosling is out of the question imo. 179,5-180,5 cm (5´10.75/5´11) looks the most likely at this point for Ryan Gosling, in my opinion. Should Emma Stone prove to be a solid 5´6, Ryan Would be closer to/over 6ft.

He actually really is 180 flat.

I did think he was 5'11" ish but the fact he is roughly two inches taller than Clooney I doubt he under six.

Klem says on 7/Sep/12
Eva Mendes is around 5-5, her sandals on the pic are platform, notice how they are also thick at front, so they could really be around 4 inches. That makes her 5-9 in shoes.She reaches to to around his eye-level. He is than around 5-9 + 4.5 = 6-1.5 in shoes. Shoes looks to give solid inch so that would make him around 6-0.25 barefoot. Also the pavement looks uneven in Mendes favor. He really looks as listed on that picture.
zero says on 1/Sep/12
Mmmm he struggles to look 6 foot. Hard to pin down this guy, i'm going with a weak 6 foot or 5 11-75
Johnnyfive says on 1/Sep/12
Yup, based on the Mendez pic, Gosling is 179 or 180 max! Ive seen Eva in 2004 in NYC while she and Will Smith were filming Hitch and she did indeed look close to 5'5 from 10 feet away. Therefore, Gosling can't be more than 5'11 flat
joe joe says on 30/Aug/12
Looking at the picture with eva mendez there is no way this guy is 184. eva mendez is tiny and a 184 guy would tower her.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 9/Aug/12
Rob is there any chance you will at least downgrade this guy to 182? Looking at him next to Carell, Cranston, Brooks, Reynolds etc, I think it is clear as day that he is below 6', and many posters on this page agree with me on this.
[Editor Rob: I can't see him being under 6 foot, I'm sure on occasions he might look it, but you can say this with most people - at times they will look shorter ]
Chameleon says on 5/Aug/12
Click Here with eva mendez. 180cm max his shoes aint flat either look at all the evidence posted over time, there is no way hes over 180cm how much more u need he is a clear cut 180cm max guy, immediate downgrade.
ANDREA[ITA] says on 4/Aug/12
Jtm, one thing ive learnt is that you cant judge someone's height from movies! Anyway, i saw some pics of him and, comparing him to other celebs listed here, he really doesnt look under 6', unless he wears lifts. But what would be the point?
jtm says on 4/Aug/12
ANDREA[ITA] says on 2/Aug/12
I dont think he's under 6'! Why everybody is trying to get him down? He looks in the 6'-6'0.5 range!

i am not trying to downgrade him. he just never looks 6'0 to me. i have seen almost all his movies except for united states of leland and never thought he looked 6'0 or taller.
BigT says on 3/Aug/12
@Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP: Thanks man! There are probably going to be a bunch of angry fans calling us "downgraders", but I would like to make one thing very clear. I would like nothing more if Gosling was really this listed height. I wouldn't give a flying f*** if he was really 6'1, heck I'd be happy for him. The problem is though, I just don't SEE it. I call them as I see them, I don't downgrade celebs for the sake of downgrading, or to troll. Some people are just delusional and terrible at judging heights. Some people need to learn that the majority of celebs, and people in general for that matter, lie about and manipluate their height.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 3/Aug/12
There is loads of evidence that proves this guy is 180-181, maybe 182cm at the absolute MAX. Same height as Robert Pattinson, who is overlisted at 184cm as well.

@BigT: I think those are some excellent estimates man.
Chameleon says on 3/Aug/12
@BigT: I pretty much agree with all your listings! except that I would put Damon a cm lower at 174cm, and Leo might be the full 5'10.

@Cranberries: Indeed, Gosling is a 180 guy.
BigT says on 2/Aug/12
I would really like to meet him in person. I have many legit 6ft friends so I know exactly how that looks next to a 5'11"ish guy like myself. If I ever see a legit 6ft+ for Gosling I would be very, very surprised, he doesn't look it at all.

@Chameleon: What's your take on Justin Timberlake, Jake Gyllenhaal, Leonardo Dicaprio, Matt Damon, Channing Tatum, George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale and Brad Pitt?

Here's mine:
Justin Timberlake: 178 cm
Matt Damon: 175 cm
Jake Gyllenhaal: 178 cm
George Clooney: 176 cm
Brad Pitt: 176 cm
Channing Tatum: 180 cm
Leonardo DiCaprio: 177 cm

Ah allright I misunderstood, and good that u also see his true heigh, 180cm.
BigT says on 1/Aug/12
Chameleon, I completely agree with you, Gosling ain't over 180 cm. What I'm saying is that he can look around 183-185 cm, but only when those factors are in the picture, and perhaps even tiptoeing.
Chameleon says on 1/Aug/12
Even in dress shoes here and still the usual 2 inches on Carell he never looked more then 2 inches over Carell, watch Crazy Stupid Love and check his height, u can also google their pics together because off set he also always looks 180cm.

Click Here
Chameleon says on 1/Aug/12
No there have been a lot of pics without all those 'factors' where he keeps coming out 180cm, even in the movie Crazy Stupid Love you can tell around Steve Carell in scenes without any tricks that he is 180cm. Carell especially exposed Gosling's real height. With Cranston and brooks, 180cm, with Reynolds, 180cm. Clooney, 180cm.
Click Here
he even tries to tiptoe here, this guy isnt more then 180cm.
BigT says on 1/Aug/12
My parents got married today and the priest was 6'1", in the pictures I looked as tall as him eventhough I'm only shy of 5'11. There are a lot of factors, uneven surfaces, camera-angles, footwear etc.
Chameleon says on 1/Aug/12
Just because he appeared to you 6ft1 doesnt mean he is, CLEARLY he is not a cm over a 180cm.
Tmann says on 1/Aug/12
Not sure I can explain his height in all the pics posted. Being that he looks shorter than than his listed height. But again, I've been within feet of him (a few years ago). He looked 6 ft 1. I have no reason to embellish my height at 6 ft 2. And I am not shorter than that. As this website has made me realize how crazy people are about it. So I measure myself barefoot quite often to make sure
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 31/Jul/12
@Chiara and Jake
No he is 182cm at the absolute MAX as he was only a fraction taller than Bryan Cranston and Albert Brooks, and he was only 5-6cm taller than Steve Carell. He was also a lot shorter than Reynolds.
In my opinion a flat 180cm is the most likely height for Gosling, this listing is way off.
Chameleon says on 31/Jul/12
@Chiara no Reynolds is not 6'2, he was listed 6'1 before he made it big. Even if he is 6'2 is then Gosling is still 5'11 tops as u can see, so what makes u think u think this listing is accurate lol? If Gosling is the listed height, then Steve Carell should be upgraded to 179cm which he is not now, Gosling is 5'11 max get over it.
Chiara says on 31/Jul/12
@Chameleon Reynolds is 6´2. This listing is definetely accurate, if not even half an inch too low.
BigT says on 30/Jul/12
I see many people refering to the pictures of Gosling and Gyllenhaal to 'prove' that Gosling is 185 cm, but those pictures are all tricky camera angles and tiptoeing from Mr. Gosling, which often tends to do. The ONE picture from that seance that could be used to draw any type of comparison between the two is this one: Click Here Gyllenhaal is (imo) 178 cm, as he looks it with Sarsgaard, Hathaway and Jamie Foxx. There's basically no difference between Gosling and Gyllenhaal here.

Gosling: 180 cm (MAX!! And even that might be generous)
Gyllenhaal: 178 cm
BigT says on 30/Jul/12
Can´t wait to see him in Gangster Squad and compare him to Brolin, Ribisi, Penn, Mackie, Peña, Nolte and the others. I know movies isn´t the best way to judge height, with the lifts, camera-angles and other factors, but it gives you an idea.

@Chameleon and Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP: Strongly agree with you guys regarding Gosling´s height, this listing is very generous. He might be this height in a fine set of built-up dress shoes, but not barefoot. 180 cm MAX, looks it with Carell, Clooney and others. Downgrade-time.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 29/Jul/12
Gosling: 182cm MAX, probably 180cm flat.
Gyllenhaal: 178cm MAX, probably 176-177cm.
