Hey Rob who do you think is taller; Ryan Gosling or Hayden Christensen?
Alex said on 24/Mar/17
He is definetely taller than 6 ft.
jtm said on 23/Mar/17
More like 5'11.25. He's shorter than Keith David.

Her choice of films is very misinformed Rob! I hope she finally gets to see the movie and realize the error of her ways! 😉
March March he's our man said on 21/Mar/17
Hi Rob, can you add The Nice Guys to his list of credits? His comedic timing in that film was impeccable.
Editor Rob: the other day as I was flicking through films to watch, I actually said to Jenny if we could watch the Nice Guys.

she said another day, let's watch Twilight again 😡

not nice of her!
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Mar/17
@ Al - That sounds amazing! He must be super-confident to give off that impression!
This time he gets 6ft and three quarters of an inch!
Al said on 17/Mar/17
He's a lot taller in person. To me he seemed almost 6'3
HonestSlovene said on 10/Mar/17
@VeryShortRussianDude Exactly man, but still maybe above average might suffice more though as in people that not deal with sites like this can understand. 5'11" and 6'0" ranges are still both safely above average, but they are just so close to the 5'10.25" average in Europe that you can't possibly say that those 2 heights are tall, hence tallish. The opposite holds true for 5'8" and 5'9".
Marquis said on 7/Mar/17
Honestly, looks 5'10.5" to 5'11" in most everything he's been in.

You can Google plenty of pics of him standing next to 5'6" Emma Stone... Gosling consistently looks 3-3.5" taller.

Then add in the 1.5" advantage of her high heels vs Gosling's dress shoes, and Bob's your uncle.
Jug said on 7/Mar/17
He is probably about 6 feet and a half. He appeared with Will Ferrell once on a talk show and looked not more than two inches shorter than him.
VeryShortRussianDude said on 1/Mar/17
James, what are you talking about? lots of people use the term tallish, for instance, a 5'11.5 guy might be considered tallish to most people but not out & out tall hence the term tallish.

It's a common term.
Dennis said on 1/Mar/17
6 foot is also a height, all guys around the 6 mark doesnt need to be called 5'11. Ryan gosling always look taller than his companions in all movies. 184 cm is perfect for him
job with a b said on 26/Feb/17
5ft 10.25in tops
HonestSlovene said on 18/Feb/17
@James Then rather say below average/above average. 182.8 cm is exactly 6'0", so not even a full 183 cm, that would be a bit above 6'0" in my opinion.
Alex2401 said on 15/Feb/17
Looks like 6.0
Giorgi said on 14/Feb/17
Rob, do you think there could be 1 cm between him and Heath Ledger?
Editor Rob: I feel they are close, but maybe Heath edges him out.
Sam said on 13/Feb/17
Rob, could you add The Believer, The Big Short and Crazy, Stupid, Love to his credits?
6'1-6'1.5 Guy said on 10/Feb/17
In the film "Gangster Squad," he looked like a six-foot.
Height Ryan Gosling:
A) 182.5-184 cm.
B) 182-183.5 cm.
ma said on 10/Feb/17
Rob, please note that this guy is a 6 footer no taller.
Please watch La La Land and notice the gap between him and Emma Stone. Emma looks 170 cm if this guy is over 183
Rick said on 5/Feb/17
Rob could you please answer to my question? I'm interested to know what you think
Editor Rob: Damian could be about 5ft 10
digling said on 1/Feb/17
I think he is a height conscious guy, he certainly can be like 184.3cm in the morning but goes to bed after a long day at 183.0
He has one of the best postures, and can wear a very small lift for standing at 186.0~185.3 sometimes
That's my bet.
James said on 31/Jan/17
@HonestSlovene To use the term "tallish" for 1.83 m people is like using the term "shortish" for 5' 8" people. Nobody says that!! Most people say that 5' 8" guys are short. Please go to Oxford Dictionary or Merrian-Webster and you will see the word "tallish" doesn't exist in English. As I said only height geeks use that term.
James said on 31/Jan/17
@HonestSlovene 50th percentile is the average. 75th percentile is more than 50th percentage, more than 60 th percentage, and even more than 70th percentage. Therefore way above average. By the way, the term "tallish" is only used in or by height geeks. Most people only use three terms: "short", "average" or "tall". A legit 6 ft (1.83) guy like Gareth Bale would be considered tall in the USA, instead of "short" or "average".
James said on 31/Jan/17
@HonestSlovene Nope, 1.82 is not 6 ft. 6 ft is 1.83, ergo 80th percentile, good enough to be tall. A legit 6 ft guy like Gareth Bale is obviously tall in the US among the white population. I don't know how tall is Ryan Gosling, but I'm talking about guys that are solid 1.83, not 1.82 or 1.82.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jan/17
Usually looks a strog 6fter and occasionally a weak 6ft1
Balrog said on 29/Jan/17
This is a better listing, don't rule out 6'0'' for him.
Rick said on 22/Jan/17
Rob, don't you think that looking at this picture Damien Chazelle it's a bit taller than his listed height on the internet (1,77) or Ryan Gosling shorter than 1,84?

Matthew said on 21/Jan/17
He looked like a 182cm guy in La La land 511.5, awesome film!!
HonestSlovene said on 18/Jan/17
@James Nope, the average for that population would be around 178 cm and since Ryan clocks in at about a legit 6'0" (182-183cm) he would around the 75th percentile. Tallish, no doubt, but not solid tall. This listing is still the most he could be, I generally see him at 5'11.75"-6'0.25", so a legit 6'0", no more, a nudge shorter than 6'0"-6'0.5" Bradley Cooper.
Willes189 said on 15/Jan/17
Rob, can you add La La Land?
Moody said on 15/Jan/17
Lol at anything less than 6'0.
James said on 14/Jan/17
@Kaneff I personally don't think you have to be 90th percentile to be tall. Look at this chart:

Click Here

1.83 is definetely over 80th percentile among 20-40 years old American Caucasian population so it is already tall. Anyway, since this is a bit subjective issue, if you feel like 6' 1" is the start of the tall height is OK. From my perspective (legit) 6 ft is the start of the tall height in the US.
Glynny182 said on 10/Jan/17
Rob which one of these options of morning to evening ranges would suit Gosling best. ;A) 186cm-184cm B)185.5cm-183.5cm C)185cm-183cm or would you guess outside either over or under of the above ranges?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't go as low as C, I feel at least B range for him, actually between a-b I feel is likely.
mickey said on 9/Jan/17
he's already being guessed as less than 6ft? i remember when he was measured as 185cm on google
Hijopotamus said on 6/Jan/17
182 cm and he knows it

Rob, can you answer please, do you guess the celebs highest or lowest height?
Editor Rob: Ignacio, not their morning height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/17
6ft0¼-6ft0½ for me. Clearly taller than 5ft11 range guys
Jay said on 4/Jan/17
Gosling has been making Matt Bomer - a supposedly true 5'11", look much shorter. Goslings a strong 6 fter.
grizz said on 3/Jan/17
@Importer, you don't have to compare them separately. Just google images "Bradley cooper Ryan gosling", there's a couple of pics where they stand together. Even if we tend into account that Bradley loves beefier footwear, there's an obvious height advantage in favor for Bradley
Importer said on 31/Dec/16
Gosling and Cooper are really close, the difference is by milimeters. However Cooper has a wider, more muscular mass and does appear taller in person or when comparing two separate pictures of him and Gosling.
Sarah said on 30/Dec/16
Looked at least six inches taller than 5'6 range Emma Stone
Sandy Cowell said on 28/Dec/16
Ryan does look in access of 6ft, that's for sure. I saw 'Drive' (some boys in the video shop were discussing it and I thought I would give it a whirl!) I didn't regret it!
I now own many of his films but as my little scrapbook isn't here, I can't say how many. One of the unexpected best is one with Keeley Hawes as a cast member, and Ryan also starred with Michael Pitt, as his brother, in 'Murder by Numbers', which stands out for me!
I look forward to seeing his New Year release, a musical of all things, with the delightful Emma Stone! It's a completely new direction for him so it should be interesting. He discussed it on the 'Ellen deGeneres' show recently and yes, he did look very tall indeed next to Ellen!
Kaneff said on 21/Dec/16
@ryan allen

It can depend on the demographic you are around. A legit 6ft is actually one standard deviation above the average compared to the general U.S. population and general population of 20-29yos, meaning that only around 1 in 6 guys are taller. It's an objectively tall height by that standard.

if we're talking only 20-39yo whites then 6ft1 is the start of tall and 6ft is only 75th percentile. At 6ft I usually feel tall in places with a diverse demographic such as airports or cities like Seattle. In places with a mostly white population I don't feel that tall, even close to average range at times.
ryan allen said on 19/Dec/16
Sorry cs but I am also 6ft tall, and I don't think of my self as tall,above average, well here in New York at lest?
Importer said on 17/Dec/16
Rob when you say 6ft 0.25inch (184) and on others use 6ft 0.5 inch (184), ur saying that a 184 (6ft 0.25inch) that is closer to 183 and a 184 (6ft 0.5inch)that is closer to 185?
If it's otherwise I am really confused :D
Editor Rob: Importer, because the 6ft 0.25 is 183.515cm, the nearest full cm is 184.

He might be 184cm early morning

He's probably a 6'0.125" kind of guy like me. Could measure 6'0.25" on relaxed days or 6' flat as an absolute low.

Rollo Tomasi said on 3/Oct/16
6 ft flat

i would say 6ft.5 is the right answer considering everything that i saw
TD said on 23/Sep/16
Even at his most extreme low I can't see Ryan dropping much under 6ft. Looks to hold his height above the 6ft mark in every film I've seen him in. This seems a pretty fair listing.
Pic said on 13/Sep/16
Rob, if Emma Stone is 168 cm, then Ryan Gosling should be downgraded to 180 cm.

Just take a look at this photo:

With that heels, she gains about 8 cm, and with that shoes, he gains about 2 cm.

Yh, he looked maybe around 2 Inches taller than Crowe, this listing seems pretty fair, I cant see him measuring under 6'0.25- He is likely 6'0.25-- 6'0.5 somewhere in that 184cm range

Remember the Titans said on 12/Jul/16
I highly doubt this dude ever drops below a solid 6 ft.
truth said on 6/Jul/16
@Johno He has 1 in on Pitt most likely. So Pitt = almost 5'11(179-180 cm), Gosling = almost 6'0 (182-183 cm). Or basically a classic example of a 5'11 and a 6'0 guy.
truth said on 6/Jul/16
I think more 182 cm range rather than 183 cm but nonetheless the listing is not that far off.
Sasha said on 6/Jul/16
In "The Nice Guys" movie Ryan is not more than 1 inch taller comparing to Russell Crowe. If Russell is 5'10.5" (according to this site), Ryan is at most 5'11.5".
Johno said on 29/Jun/16
He looked about max 3-inches taller than Tom Felton who Rob has been pictured with and who Rob looked to edge, putting Tom at a height of ~ 5'8 and Ryan ~5'11 in comparison to Tom.
MDV said on 16/Jun/16
i saw nice guys and i was impressed when i saw his height listed here as 184 cm! Looking at him with Russel Crowe and Brad Pitt he might be in 182-183 zone...Rob what do you think?Could he be a weak 6 foot?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't go as low as a weak 6ft for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/16
Cooper - Strong 184cm
Gosling - Weak 184cm

He isnt taller than 5'11.
Johno said on 23/May/16
I saw the Graham Norton show with him on it to but i think a strong 5'11/weak-6'0 would suit him best. Not quite as tall as Cooper but most of height range throughout the day would probably be in the 5'11-range.
xxx said on 20/May/16
he was on the graham norton show next to greg davies and he was literally dwarfed like he looked 5'10-'11 max.
berta said on 19/May/16
this guy hava Always looked like a 6 footer to me. Maybe he is a Little over. i dont Think he is under. He is probably this height ore 6 foot. Bradley was a Little taller. He could be weak 185. But i Think he has something in his shoes and is 184 .
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/May/16
I think Bradley Cooper edged him out in Place Beyond The Pines. So if this guy is 183/184cm, then looks Cooper is 184/185cm for real

@S.J.H. yeah you re right and I think the 182-183cm range fits him better than the 183-184cm one.
S.J.H said on 27/Apr/16
Gosling is min 182cm and don't believe rumours that had putting him down under 5'11. People could check him out with most honest 6'2 actor ryan reynolds that there is not over 6cm between them
sexy said on 27/Mar/16
My height is like goslings with small frame. Believe me he is 179-180 maybe 181 is the highest
Johno said on 26/Mar/16
Gosling is almost as tall as Bradley Cooper or you could say similar in dimension and would be somewhere between 1-2 inches taller than Brad Pitt.
blackangold said on 16/Mar/16
Mr Killer Shrimp is right.

Gosling was interviewed by 6'4ish Michael Strahan at the oscars and he didnt look taller than 5'10-5'11.
Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 16/Mar/16

Ok, we don't see their shoes but there is clearly something strange: on this site Gosling is listed 184cm and Pitt 180cm.
What's wrong? There are a lot of photos (with different camera angles) which show they are very close in height.
In my opinion Gosling is under 184cm and Pitt is a little over 180cm.
Gosling in photos generally appears as a weak 6footer while Pitt as always a good posture looking close to 6ft many times, at the end I think 183cm for Gosling (chance of being 182cm) and 181cm for Pitt.

Rob, can I have your opinion on the height difference between them? How would you explain the photo?
appe 6ft0.5 said on 14/Mar/16
@Celebheights, this is not an inch difference for sure. Gosling is taller but no more than 1cm.
To me they re exactly 183cm Gosling and 182cm Bale.
datguy said on 14/Mar/16
Rob you can't lower ryan to a strong 6 foot and keep christian bale at 6'0 I think 5'11.75 would be a better listing for him

@Rob don't you think it's quite clear that Ryan Gogling and Brad Pitt are closer in height than 4cm difference? I've just seen yesterday The big short movie and another time I don't see Gosling as tall as a 184cm guy should be.
Always more convinced he s between 182 and 183cm (he has 3 inch on steve carell).
Instead (lift or not lift) pitt can pass easily for 181-182cm guy.
There is less than an inch difference between them to me, what to you think?

Editor Rob: Gosling at 1/4 inch over 6ft could be on the money.


And when that happens, let's remember to downgrade Christian Bale to a weak 6'0.

If Carell is 5'9 then gosling must be 6'.

about 6 ft i recon. Smart looking fella with narrow shoulders and slender frame - always gives a taller impression.

Its funny, two of my friends look really tall and have really long legs. One said he was 6'2". My other friend did the classic back to back between me and both my taller friends. I am exactly 6' flat mid day in socks. I was exactly the same height as one of them and less than a cm shorter than the other. When i measured the tops of their hips and mine, they had 2" longer legs !

Proportions can really change how we perceive height.

That would be a very fair listing. I think he looks more a 182 - 183 cm guy than 184. I could call him an even 6'0".

The full length race track scene of Drive shows him walking beside Bryan Cranston, and leaves no room for doubt that Gosling is slightly but significantly over six feet tall.
gian92 said on 12/Dec/15
He is no more than 6 feet
cole said on 11/Dec/15
He has narrow shoulders, an overall slim frame and long legs, couple that with good posture and he will appear taller than he actually is at times. I'd bet on 6'0-6'0.25 range after seeing him with Bale, Pitt and Crowe recently.

He never looked tall to me. Very surprised to see him listed at 6'. He does not give an impression of a 6-foot man. 5'9" sure, but 6'...
WhoCares said on 6/Dec/15
Are you all sure he is 184? He was significantly shorter than Michael Che (listed as 185) and Jay Pharoah (186) in SNL this weekend. Wasn't much taller than Kyle Mooney or Bobby Moynihan (5'7" and 5'8" respectively). He definitely did not have 4-5 inches on them
Dejavu said on 5/Dec/15
If Will Ferrell is really listed at 6'2.5, I think Ryan Gosling is 6'0. He could look more than 2 inches shorter.

Dejavu said on 2/Dec/15
Rob, can 6'0 be closer? I didn't think he looked that much taller than Brad Pitt. At times they looked the same.
Editor Rob: anywhere in 6ft -6ft 0.5 range I think is arguable. I wouldn't go as high as 185 or as low as 182

Ryan Gosling: 6'0 1/2" (he can appear to be shorter than the mark at times, but I think that he's definitely over 6'0")
Christian Bale: 6'0" (he's the same as 6'0" 50 Cent)
Channing Tatum: 6'0 3/4" at least, and 6'1" is also possible. He's not much shorter than Chris Hemsworth.
Brad Pitt: 5'11" (no more, and no less)

Not the best pics, it will be better to tell when the film is released and there are more shots of them together. I don't think there'd be much between them in similar footwear in a straight shot.
Interesting to see how Brad stacks up with Gosling, Bale and Carell as well.
appe 6ft0.5 said on 16/Nov/15
Gosling is a flat 6ft while Cooper is a legit 6ft0.5.
Also Channing Tatum is a legit 6ft0.5 to me.
Rob, do you consider the idea to put down Gosling at 183? (IMO he can't be 184 at night, more likelier 182,5-183)
kevin said on 15/Nov/15
in recent pics looks barely taller if not the same as bale who i believe is 182cm... and was shorter than cooper, so i guess 183cm would fit better or shaving at least 0.25 off
Val said on 12/Nov/15
He is 5'11.5, not quite a full 6footer barefoot. Not wearing lifts ,at least with shorter actors,only confirms this. Steve Carell is a legit 5'9 guy,and Gosling does not have a full 3 inches on him,and they've been in 2(?) movies together now.
theLiars said on 7/Nov/15
ok, gos is wearing 2" heals with lifts next to crowe slouching in vans? crowe would likely nudge his height like everyone and has probably lost some 1/8s as a side effect of carrying extra weight. where does that put gos?

HB said on 29/Sep/15
He seems a decent 6' if not more alone, but whenever he's with Steve Carrell he looks 5'11. There's a trailer out for a new film they're in and you see them standing opposite eachother both in dress shoes I assume.

VO said on 5/Jul/15
Ryan is 1,78-1,79 (5'10") barefoot, believe it or not. With lifts in his shoes he can look much taller, about 5'11 or even 6 ft. Watch his interview with Kimmel (who is 5'11" MAX in shoes) and compare their height.

Odessa said on 18/Apr/15
hmmm...interesting picture. How do you know what shoes they are wearing? The picture only shows their upper halves. Either way, Gosling is standing at full height and has a slight camera advantage plus taller hair. Matt is standing in a very slouched manner, slightly further back, and with a shaved head. Gosling definitely looks taller, but until we can see footwear and Matt standing side by side at at an equal angle with good posture, it's hard to say how much taller Gosling really is. I wouldn't be surprised if the difference was pretty small.

B-ran said on 8/Apr/15
I'm interested to see how he stacks up against Brad Pitt and Christian Bale in the upcoming film, The Big Short. If he edges both of them out, we will have a much better idea. Bale is pretty much a spot on 5'11.75 - 6 foot guy. Brad will likely be boosting as usual, so we can probably call him 6'0 when comparing.
Aloe said on 8/Apr/15
I think 6 foot flat is a good guess. The only time I was ever really questioning it was in the video for some MTV best kiss award where he stands next to Ryan Reynolds. It could be the angle, ect., but he looks a good 2.5 - 3 inches shorter than Reynolds in that video. That would put him somewhere in the mid 5'11 range. The only way to really know, would be to have him stand barefoot next to another verified 6 foot man. This is not like to happen.
Hypado said on 20/Feb/15
My ''ultimate guess'' for Gosling:

183,5 cm / 6ft 0.25in = Ryan Gosling.
Joshua said on 20/Feb/15
He has always looked 5'11 to me, I guess 5'11.5 is posible, but no more than that.

In those pics with Crowe, Russell has awful posture and is wearing flat shoes and Gosling is wearing heeled shoes and standing straight. Based on this pic, I'd peg him at a very strong 5'11 barefoot.

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.

@Tom183: completely agree, he's the same height or slightly taller than Ron Perlman.

Bran said 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 said 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

People are ridiculous. He's not under 6ft, not even at night. This listing seems spot on.

there is nothing wrong with his posture. seems like people use that excuse with anyone that isn't tom cruise or brad pitt.
Hugochavezbodydouble said 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 said 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 said 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.

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!

Jay 184cm said 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 said 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 said 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

@Mon: He looked 6ft flat with Ferrell on stage. That backstage pic where you can't see footwear is useless.
Mon said 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.

Jay said 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.

J51 said 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 said 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_- said 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 said 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' 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 1/Jul/14

This is Matt's footwear: Click Here So far I've not found any pics worth a comparison of him and Smith...
Hu said 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 said 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 said on 23/Jun/14

cole said 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.]

@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.

cole said on 26/Apr/14
@Editor Rob: Mind adding a picture to his page?
Mon said 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 said 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 said 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.

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.

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''.

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.

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

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.

181-183 Max needs to be downgraded.

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.
