Comment on the Height of Ryan Gosling

Appe 6ft 0.5 said on 26/Nov/15
@BT they are both weak 6fters. Ryan looks taller when standing alone because he has a lean frame
gian92 said on 23/Nov/15
he is no more than 6 feet , if Duchovny claims 6 feet , it's impossible that Gosling is over 6 feet .
BT said on 21/Nov/15
@Editor Rob: Gosling and Christian Bale

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?
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 27/Oct/15
Sam said on 23/Oct/15
strong 182cm-183cm I think fits him, doesn't appear as someone that's above the 6ft mark but more around it.


I agree. 6'0" is tall enough for Gosling.

6'0" flat would be a good shout I reckon.

6 feet tall while Gyllenhaal is 5'11
The Dutch Guy said on 13/Oct/15
He's 5'11.5''.
Sam said on 12/Oct/15
His arms do look on the long side for his height but I can't really picture him as under six foot range.
kev said on 2/Oct/15
i have the same height and body type like him. im 1.78/1.79. everybody thinks im 180-183 . ryan goslings looks taller because of hs body frame and his long arms and long built.. believe me
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.
Emil 182-183 cm said on 28/Sep/15
Ryan Gosling is really tricky... Can look anywhere between 182 and 185 cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Sep/15
184-185cm like Cooper...
dp 92 said on 3/Sep/15
He is way taller than Ben mendhelson who is a solid 5'11 guy. Just watch the place beyond the pines.
Josh1 said on 29/Jul/15
Im honestly surprised hes 6'0 He always looks 5'11
Mikey said on 25/Jul/15
Ryan Gosling isnt anywhere near 60". He looked at least 3 inches shorter than 62" Jeff Wolfe in Drive!
5'10 would be funny said on 23/Jul/15
If he's really 5'10", then I would look effing awesome in a suit. I'm 6'0"
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 12/Jul/15
They generally don't include half inches.
Jake said on 7/Jul/15
His height is exaggerated. First of all he's listed 6'0 and not as 6'0.5.
Why would he get listed lower than his actual height?
And after seeing him with other celebs that are listed on here, he looks nothing over 5'11.5 ( 182 cm )
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.
kev said on 4/Jun/15
Ryan gosling height: 6ft 0.5in (184 cm) wow
Sonny Black said on 27/May/15
He's a tough one to peg because he has pretty slim build, my guess for him is anywhere from 5'11-6'0.
zyzz said on 20/May/15
Rob do you think 6'0 flat is possible?
[Editor Rob: I think he clears that mark.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Apr/15
5ft11 range is extreme...A decent 6fter at least.
danny said on 19/Apr/15
On your pic, Tom, the guy on the right suffers height difference ( approx. an inch ) 'cos of bad posture, while Gosling is straighting himself up.
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.
Tom said on 17/Apr/15
With 5'11.5 Matt Smith (both wearing boots so 95% certain equal footwear)

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.
Odessa said on 9/Feb/15
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.
Pierre said on 7/Feb/15
in some pictures with Georges Clooney he seem just a little taller than
jtm said on 5/Feb/15
i don't think crowe is over 5'10 so i still believe gosling is 5'11.
Dan said on 4/Feb/15
Holds up well against Will Ferrell in Jimmy Kimmel's "Knife Guys" skit. The very lowest I could see him at is 183cm if he were standing up all day long.
Hypado said on 4/Feb/15
in this photos with Crowe, Ryan Gosling have two inches more than russell = 184cm
cole said on 4/Feb/15
A couple more:

Hard to tell since both are slouching and Ryan could have a little more footwear, but I'd say he looks nearer 6ft flat compared to a 5'10.5 Crowe.
Superman said on 3/Feb/15
With 5'10.5 Russell Crowe. I see 2 inches in the first picture. Slightly less in the next.

Footwear Ryan has shoes with heels whilst russell is wearing flat sneakers. Most likely 0.5-0.75 inch advantage for Gosling making him 5'11.75 - 6 Flat
Emil 183 cm said on 29/Jan/15
His absolute lowest could be 183 cm imo, so 184 is fair enough
Shamrock said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 16/Jan/15
@Tom183: completely agree, he's the same height or slightly taller than Ron Perlman.
Tom183 said 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 said on 26/Dec/14
5'10.75", 179-180cm.
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
Chris said on 1/Nov/14
People are ridiculous. He's not under 6ft, not even at night. This listing seems spot on.
cole said 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 said 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 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.
cole said 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 said on 7/Oct/14
Just about 6ft0, perfect male aryan specimen (no homo).
jtm said on 5/Oct/14
closer to 5'11 than 6'1.
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 6ft0(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 6ft1(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

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 said 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 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.
Max said 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

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 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.
Adam said 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 said 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 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
Oh great, now neither of the links are working...
cole said 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 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
Ryan Gosling height: 6ft 0.25in (184 cm)

needs a .25 downgrade.
Joe said on 20/Jun/14
Weak 6'.
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.]

@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 said 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 said on 22/May/14
At photos he looks 0.75" taller then Matt Smith

So 6'0.25-5" should be right
Batman said 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 said 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 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?)

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...

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 said 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 said 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 said 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.

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.

James said on 19/Dec/13

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 said 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' 8 Oscar Isaac is in the scene too and he is dwarfed by Gosling. Ryan Gosling is 6''' 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 said on 17/Dec/13

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 said 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 said 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'').

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.

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.

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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 25/Sep/13

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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 12/Sep/13

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).

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 said 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 said on 1/Sep/13

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.

@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 said on 20/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.

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.

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'.

@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.

@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.

@Chameleon: Guess I've got high standards when it comes to acting. In Crazy Stupid Love he looked 180 cm next to Steve Carell, yes, but in Drive I thought he could pull off 6'-range.
Chameleon said on 21/Jul/13
Cant say, but he was certainly good/very good in all the movies I've seen him in, but yeah just maybe not in Gangster Squad I havent seen that movie. Anyway after Crazy Stupid Love and Drive this guy over 180cm is pushing it.
cole said on 19/Jul/13
@Chameleon: Oh I see, haha! How highly do you rate him as an actor? Think 180-183 cm range is likely, feel like I can't say anything for sure with this guy..
Balrog said on 19/Jul/13
Right, because every guy listed at 6'1'' gotta be 5'11'' at most. Gosling same as Cooper o Tatum are closer to 6'0'' than 5'11''
Chameleon said on 18/Jul/13
cole im not talking about his height I alraedy knew for a long time he is 180cm, I was talking about his acting ability :P
cole said on 17/Jul/13
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'.
Chameleon said on 16/Jul/13
cole u should watch his other movies than decide again..
cole said on 15/Jul/13
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 said 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.

Rob, haven't you met Zachary Levi? And thought he looked a good 191 cm? I know these pics are not that good, with Zachary closer to the camera and all, but I thought Ryan looked a bit more than 7 cm shorter than Zachary.
[Editor Rob: he can look around 6ft, he is a little further in that first shot though]

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 said 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 said on 27/Jun/13
Exactly bulgvar, he is 180cm.
Sam said 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 said 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.
Anthony said on 24/Jun/13
At this point, considering all our doubts, we have to rely on Rob cin one of his photos, can unravel the mystery. Rob, lovely pics for a photo with Ryan
cole said on 22/Jun/13
I've made a little collage, make what you want of it. This is why I think Ryan is more 182 than 184. Just my opinion.

cole said on 22/Jun/13
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 said on 22/Jun/13
I can't see him taller than 182cm. Maybe shorter. I am not convinced next to 175cm steve carrel.
jtm said on 21/Jun/13
still think he is closer to 5'11.
Cole said 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 said 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.
Arch Stanton said 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..

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.

Hello Cole.Sono agree with you on the fact that the angle of the pictures can be deceiving, though I wish you gave a look at these pictures:

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.:

They are both wearing some kind of boots it seems, Gosling's has a more suspicious look though.
Giuseppe said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 8/Jun/13
Looking several pics and with my experience i would tell that Gosling probably is 182-183 cms
chrissss said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 18/May/13
Dude's 6 feet tall or close to it. Not buying under 182 for him.
gsbr said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 13/May/13
He's 180cm
gsbr said 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.

Luther6ft said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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.
