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.

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.

He's the same height as Will Smith here;

@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.
Celebheights 188 CM says on 12/Oct/14
Out of bed: 6'0.75 (maybe 6'0 7/8" on the perfect day)
Early morning: 6'0.5"
Late morning: 6'0.25"
Early afternoon: 6'0.25"
Late afternoon: 6'0.25"
Evening: 6'0"
Celebheights 188 CM says on 12/Oct/14
His posture can sometimes be off, but it's not like Pattinson's at all. The ones who have met Gosling tend to say that he's 183-185 CM as well.
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?

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).
Celebheights 188 CM says on 2/Oct/14
Brady Cooper: 6'1" (Jim Carrey is 186-187 CM)
Ryan Gosling: 6'0.5"
Steve Carrell: 5'9.5" (he's not much shorter than Jim Carrey, Gosling or Bradley Cooper and is clearly taller than Harry Styles and Paul Rudd)

Gosling strikes me as being taller than the legit 6'0" guys like Nicolas Cage, Tom Hanks, Christian Bale, 50 Cent and Chris or Luke Evans, but shorter than 6'1" guys like Obama, Steve Nash, Roger Federer, Henry Cavill or Dr. Dre.
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

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.
Celebheights 188CM says on 1/Sep/14
He is NOT 6'1", but I think that we can agree that 6'0" is too low as well. He's probably 6'0.75" out of bed.
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

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'.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 13/Jun/14
Robert Patrick's slouching a bit there. Despite that, he looks well under 6 feet in that photo by anybody else.

Emma Stone is wearing heels and is likely 5'9" in that photo and Ryan Gosling has her by 3 CM.

Seann Penn is 5'8.5" and looks taller than Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.

Josh Brolin is about 5'10" and is standing like a giant in that photo having 2-3 inches on Ryan Gosling.

Mireille Enos is 5'2" and stands the same as Ryan Gosling.

Michael Pena is 5'7" and is standing REAL tall there as well, but he has hair advantage over everybody in the photo.

Giovanni Ribisi is listed as 5'7.25" and might be taller than Ryan Gosling in the photo while slouching.

He obviously can't be that short, but why is Gosling the third shortest in those photos?
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.]

@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

Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 10/May/14
Yeah, it's odd that some are tall. Action stars are much shorter on average from what I've noticed when you'd expect them to be taller.
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...
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM says on 23/Apr/14
Yeah, definitely not 6'2".
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.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 19/Apr/14
I'd rule out a full 187-188 CM since it would likely be way more obvious in my opinion. I now think that 183 CM is a bit too short for him, but he's certainly not 187-188 CM as he would be consistently be appearing 185-186 CM (which he almost never does, if ever). 6'1-6'1.25" might be possible with real good posture in the morning.
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''.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 17/Apr/14
Better photo with Jake Gyllenhaal whose listed as 5'11.5"/182 CM:

Click Here

He has about two inches on him.
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.

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

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.

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"

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!”

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.

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.

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.
James says on 6/Sep/13
@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)...

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.

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

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]

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.

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.

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.

@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.

@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.

Exactly bulgvar, he is 180cm.

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.

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.
