Hey Rob,

How much do you think ryan weighs? Maybe 150 lbs?
[Editor Rob: 150-5 range could be possible.]

With a 5'11"(ish) Jimmy Kimmel:

Kimmel's head is tilted a bit. I do believe he's a bit shorter than currently listed. Not much, but he's not 5'8.5"
Arch Stanton said on 30/Apr/15
In a big group of lads if you're legit 5'9 range you really shouldn't get called short as there'll usually be a fair few shorter. A proper 5'9" er should usually look in between in a fair sized group. A 5'8" range guy like this though in some situations might be the shortest and feel short, but it's lower average range overall.
Nick said on 30/Apr/15
Sorry Jackson but you're wrong for sure. I'm 5'9.5 and I've gotten. Crap for years from my buddies, just the way it goes.

These pics clearly indicate a serious downgrade for Ryan or an upgrade for Dan Folger. Either way Ryan is definitely under 5'8.5 thats just crazy for him
Sean said on 29/Apr/15
I gotta agree with Jackson, I know several legit 5'9" guys, and I've never heard anyone even call them short. Heck, I'm a flat 5'8 and short jokes are pretty rare. Sorry, James.
Jackson said on 9/Apr/15
Sorry James, you're not 5'9 If people make fun of your average height. You are probably 5'6

This guy makes me proud to be 5'9", whenever I get made fun of for my height, I'm just gonna reply back with "Ryan Phillippee's the same height and he gets all the chicks".

Im sure you have 10 out of 10 movie star looks like he does, hahah.
Ed82 said on 10/Nov/14
I just watched Lincoln Lawyer. He looked just two inches shorter than McConaughey, but then I noticed his footwear always had heels that gave him at least an inch boost, not to mention if lifts were involved. 173-174cm seems spot on.
Hypado said on 26/Oct/14
Ryan Phillippe height: 5ft 8.5in (174 cm)

This, no doubt.

Just walked by him in downtown los angeles. Seemed easily a couple inches shorter than me and I'm a strong 5'10''. 5'8'' imo.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Dec/13
About right. LOL he looks lost and completely out of place in Gosford Park. He just looks too Hollywood for that movie!!
Arch Stanton said on 18/Oct/13
Yeah about right, two inches shorter than Matt Dillon in Crash.
Viper said on 11/Sep/13
Mccnauhey isnt taller than 5'9. After seeing him on video with 6'3 measured Vernon Davis I cant see him above that.
FM said on 27/Aug/13
I thought he was just a couple of inches shorter than Matthew McConaughey:

Talk about lifts...
Shaq said on 25/Jul/13
I think he wears lifts, sometimes he seems at least 5'9 and other times he seems to be barely pushing 5'6-5'7
Jason B, said on 20/Jul/13
He look more 173cm
refresh said on 13/Jul/13
on men's health he said 170cm
and i think he is 5'7

Silent d said on 23/Jun/13
5 foot 8.
superman said on 21/Jun/13
i meant to say i think he is a flat 5'8 like zac efron can you see him at 173cm rob?
[Editor Rob: it's not impossible, 174cm though might be a fair shout]
superman said on 17/Jun/13
also he looks shorter than zac efron who is listed at 5'8 so he has to be a very strong 5'7 or 5'7.5 thanks
superman said on 17/Jun/13
what do you think ron downgrade him atleast the .05 of an inch?
[Editor Rob: it is a possibility he's not over 174]
superman said on 16/Jun/13
Inckuding myself and people who have met him, and on your site there is 9 out of 11 people who believe he should be downgraded, and dont belive for a second he is over 5'8. thanks
superman said on 8/Jun/13
hey ron do you think he needs a downdgrade at all, but 70% of people who posted beleive this guy is under 173cm, and even though ive onyl met him one time i would agree, but if you met him i for sure trust your anwser.
superman said on 4/Jun/13
like i stated before i met him at a soccer for his son game, he looked to be 5'7.5 inches tall i think your listing is perfect when he is in shoes. I agree with satchy, daniel, danMan and Lucy. thanks
superman said on 2/Jun/13
im a flat 5'9 and,I have only seen him 1 time at a soccer game for his son he looked 5'7 max and he was wearing nike heigh tops, so i would agree with satchy,and daniel. great site rob.
satchy said on 30/Mar/13
5ft 7 max
Daniel said on 25/Mar/13
He's only maybe 2" taller than Breckin Meyer, who I think might be close to 5' 3" (just watched Clueless).

No way is this guy taller than Marky Mark

Spot on I think, almost 4 inches shorter than 50 cent.

Lucy said on 5/Aug/12
5'7.5 max. He's not very tall.
Dmeyer said on 6/Jun/12
Solid 4 in under 5'11.75-6ft 50cent and shorter than 175cm statham , nothing over proper 173cm
Splitting Hairs said on 8/Feb/12
He only looked about 3-3.5 inches shorter than Freddie Prince Jr in "I Know what you did last summer", so given Freddies 6'1" height I would have guessed at least 5'9.5" for Ryan. He also towered over Jennifer Love Hewitt by a good 7-8 inches.
TS sucks said on 20/Sep/07
glenn and TS need to calm down. this is about how tall Ryan is. And he's 5'8.
laura said on 16/Sep/07
ryan is 5'9'' or this height. sarah has high heels on in cruel intentions. and she´s still a bit smaller than him because he has heels, too, maybe 2cm heels or 3. around 5'9'' seems accurate.
TS said on 5/Sep/07
glenn says on 26/Aug/07
it was my best friends party you it was my party too.go **** off.
Up until now you claimed to have been a member of a security detail (an employee).Now your story is that it was 'your party too'. Apparently they weren't aware of that 'fact?' since they reported you for rude behavior. Your story gets better every time you tell it. BTW nice language. Did you use it at the party?
glenn said on 26/Aug/07
it was my best friends party you it was my party too.go **** off.
Leung said on 26/Aug/07
How about this for an interesting height match up, Ryan Phillippe versus Mark Wahlberg? I think Marky Mark would be slightly taller than Ryan.

I'm with Glenn on this one. A photo's a photo. If you're a celebrity, people want their photo taken with you. That's life. I don't get the impression Glenn sat at their table all evening or anything.
sam said on 13/Aug/07
Geez, look at him with Breckin Meyer, who no one's ever thought over 5'6". I think there's no way he would be over 5'8" from this photo:

tall peter said on 25/Jul/07
''in I know what you did last summer'' he looks a solid 5ft9max(177cm) beside 185cm tall freddy prinze jr.. if his only 174cm freddy prinze might only be 182cm..
TS said on 5/Jun/07
Glenn as 'head of security' was (I assume) a paid employeee,not a guest.Employees are not there as guests and shouldn't pretend they are.It's both intrusive and rude.
JJ said on 26/May/07
Je may be wearing lifters at times, I've seen him around in L.A walking awkardly. My guess is he 5'6 -- Just watch his films, He is rarely barefooted.
Anonymous said on 19/May/07
I agree with 5'7 - 5'7.5. In the movie PLAYING BY HEART, Angelina Jolie (5'6 - 5'6.5) is almost the same height, and both were wearing regular sneakers.
Kathryn said on 14/Apr/07
hmmm....yes, he is definately that height. or maybe a little taller. 5'9'' is maximum, 5'8'' is minimum. because i met him at a party, I´m 5'7'' and wore sneakers and he was a little taller than me. so, i can tell, he´s 5'8'' to 5'9''. bad luck, hä? =)

[Editor Rob: I forget exactly where, but I saw a photo of Ryan with Angelina Jolie and he was a little taller, she had on typical 2.7 inch might have been the same event where she only looked a few inches taller than gillian anderson, although she had an extra inch in footwear over jolie at the event]
Jo said on 10/Apr/07
Can we down grade him hes is 5' 7.75". He is barely taller than breckin myer. He is well proportioned though!
Leung said on 13/Mar/07
Most of the time Ryan Phillippe seems to be 5’8”-5’8.5”, but whenever he is with Breckin Meyer he looks 5’7” max, it’s bizarre.
Viper said on 13/Mar/07
Hes looking 5-7-5-7 1/2 there with Breckin.
Viper said on 12/Mar/07
Reese is 5-2.
Leung said on 12/Mar/07
hey chicoflaco, where did that happen? Ryan recently hooked up with hottie Ashlee Simpson.

chicoflaco said on 7/Feb/07
I saw him on an outdoor set and there was a horde of asian women gaggling over him. He wasn't much taller than them. So 5'7.5 is what he looked like.
Chris said on 5/Feb/07
Sounds like you got it right and he was just being an asswipe. If you're a celebrity you've to accept (and even embrace) people being interested in you. It's part of being a celebrity.
Glenn said on 5/Feb/07
I was shocked cause they complained to my friends that were running the party that I was bothering them.people were taking pictures left and right all night.celebs and non celebs.its New Years,why be so miserable? what did I do wrong?
Chris said on 5/Feb/07
Glenn, that sucks. I've yet to meet a snotty famous person. Those I've met have been very friendly. Being famous doesn't make it cool to be snotty.
Glenn said on 4/Feb/07
Him and Reese were snotty to me at a New Years party.and I was head of security.
Chris said on 3/Feb/07
Hey Glenn, what did he do which makes him an asswipe? You got me curious now...
Chris said on 3/Feb/07
He doesn't look too short to me. More like average height I'd say.
MOF said on 31/Jan/07
"Editor Rob: your Icelandic?"

I am.
MOF said on 30/Jan/07
I was standing next to him in a boat scene (for hours, and on even ground) for Flags of our Fathers in Iceland, August 2005. I was 5'10.5" at the time and he was about 5'8", definitely not taller than 5'9". Current listing may be reasonable, I had at least two inches on him, possibly three.

[Editor Rob: your Icelandic, or just live there?]
Glenn said on 30/Jan/07
I accept what I see cause I met him.5-7 is ridiculous,5-8 is possible,5-9 most likely.
dmeyer said on 30/Jan/07
he is visibly shorter than statham in ko by 1 in or more
Viper said on 30/Jan/07
I think he might be closer to 5-7 actually.
MD said on 30/Jan/07
5'8", again, is the top of the scale for the guy, barefoot.
Leung said on 29/Jan/07
look at those pictures with Breckin Meyer, seriously Ryan Phillippe is only a little bit taller, wow!
leonari said on 29/Jan/07
He ain't even 5'9" . Rob has him perfect:accept that folks.
Glenn said on 29/Jan/07
he is 5-9.tops.
Kathryn said on 28/Jan/07
I think Ryan Phillippe´s height is between 5'9'' (175 cm) and 5'10'' (178 cm).
I mean.....Sarah Michelle Gellar is 5'3''(160 cm) and he looks much taller than her.I saw on a TV-Show, Cameron Diaz and Sarah Michelle Gellar standing next to each other and Cameron is 174 cm and Sarah´s head´s top reached for Cameron´s cheeks. And they both wore high heels (maybe 5-6 cm). So Ryan Phillippe is taller than 174 cm for sure! Because gellar reaches for his neck.
Conner Iannone said on 10/Aug/06
5'7. He looked extremely short in Cruel intentions.
dmeyer said on 10/Aug/06
in chaos he looked shorter than stathan by 4 to 5 cm so either put ryan at 172-3 range or stathan at 177 there is a scene were statham is barefoot and philipe in shoes and jason steel looks taller
Eric said on 31/May/06
In that pic they look like a family of 4, mom, dad, 15yr old son, 10yr old daughter.
SEBASTIAN said on 19/May/06
will everyone stop beleiving what they say on camera.
rj said on 19/May/06
I met Ryan Phillipe on set and he is 5'7", possibly 5'7.5". With his shoes on he would be 5'8".
Pik said on 1/May/06
Height difference between Ryan and Reese on that picture with Sigourney looks about the same as between my girfriend who is 5'4, and me (5'10)in comparable footwear,6 inches. So if Reese is 5'2, he is 5'8 or maybe 5'8.5 tops.

[Editor Rob: here is what a 5ft 2 lady in heels can look in straight on shot beside 5ft 8 guy: link]
Hansen said on 23/Apr/06
I saw him a couple of times while he was filming AntiTrust here many years ago. He's probably somewhere between 5'6 and 5'7.
SEBASTIAN said on 20/Apr/06
Now thats stupid. This guy is the most vein actor he's not going to make himself shorter.
175-77cm17andgrowing said on 19/Apr/06
He's 168lbs now and I think his "like" is true. Compare him to Sarah Michelle Gellar in... man... CRUEL Intentions, yeah, that's it... and you'll see the guy's really 5'9'', maybe a little taller.
Anonymous said on 11/Apr/06
"Man" the tall woman is Sigourney Weaver from The Alien, The Village,...
sebastian said on 6/Apr/06
i think hes 5.6 and meyer is 5.5
MD said on 13/Mar/06
His height is tied to anyone whom we see him in a picture with of known height, including, but no exclusive, to Witherspoon.

I too, would like some explaination of the photo I posted. Knowing that Breckin Meyer is no more than 5'6" at the very most, I really need someone to explain that photo. It's easily one of the better photos I've seen showing feet, and the subject being on the same plane as the other person. Not just that, but the Lorenz Tate photo is also very telling. 5'8" seems like the next reasonable step on this one because that's what he is at the very most.

[Editor Rob: hey, I'm still trying to figure out the bernie pic ;-)

what I mean is, most of this guy's pics are with reese, and looking at them as a whole, the difference might match 173 and weak 5ft 2 so to speak...

maybe Ryan's posture isn't as good, I don't know...but yes, that's one pic of course where he can look 173 at most]
Mr. Awesome said on 11/Mar/06
looks like i was right about him all along, Rob! thank you for finally taking another look at him and changing this.

[Editor Rob: his height is tied to witherspoon. She may well be a cm under 5ft 2 if he were bang on 173cm though]
Glenn said on 11/Mar/06
Closer To 5-8.
Trueheight said on 10/Mar/06
that's sigourney weaver; pic doesn't really help that much as weaver is known as a 'tall woman' anyway and even makes some of her leading men look shortish
sebastian said on 8/Mar/06
down grade at least two inches theres no way
trueheight said on 7/Mar/06
Um, whats up w/ those brekin meyer pics? No camera in existence can negate a 4in disparity b/tw a 5'5er and a 5'9er. and both are wearing shoes that look suspect to say the least
Glenn said on 7/Mar/06
5-8.and Asswipe.
sebastian said on 6/Mar/06
this guy needs to be downgraded. seriously i mean he's only an inch or 2 taller than meyer
MD said on 12/Feb/06
Yeah, he's maybe able to get to 5'9" in some thicker heeled/soled shoes, but he's always looked just 5'8" to me.
CelebHeights Editor said on 11/Feb/06
Interview Magazine, 1998:

hey rob if you watch chaos with ryan and statham you can see that statam is more than 1 in bigger maybe ryan is only 5'8"
dmeyer said on 26/Jan/06
he looks more than half an inch less than statham 5'8.5" looks more realistic
brandon said on 24/Jan/06
Im 6'4" .. and i met him once in a bar" and he was like half of me... i think 5'8" ,,, and my x-girlfriend is 5'7" and it seemed like they were the same,,, ( the girl and ryan) >:)
End the debate said on 19/Dec/05

Want a date?
Josh said on 18/Dec/05
Yeah 5'8 5'9 is right for Ryan , I think we could be just 5'8 because in that old movie i know what you did last summer there is a secene where he is in the looker room he was barefoot and looked a solid 5'8.
Serena said on 10/Dec/05
I'm almost 6 feet, and a girl at a young age, and I thought ryan was really tall, but after I found out he was so short I became COMPLETELY DEPRESSED!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wash DC said on 21/Oct/05
I saw him and Jesse Bradford at a bar in Georgetown and he was one spindly, small character. I'm 5' 5'' and I don't think he was that much more. No way he's 5' 9".
Icelander said on 8/Oct/05
I met Ryan Philippe during the filming of Flags of our Fathers, I´m 5´11 and I was standing by him for hours and I promise he´s about 5´8-5´9.
CelebHeights Editor said on 17/Aug/05
From this website, a hotel employee commented: "Ryan Phillipe, CUTE, short, but so gracious and unaffected. Vince Vaughn...scary tall."
Drew said on 2/Jul/05
He looked a little taller, maybe 2inches max, than the main character (forgot his name) in Igby Goes Down, and that guy is 5'7". So I guess maybe 5'8"-5'9" is right.
Mr. Awesome said on 1/Jul/05
The general consensus here seems to be that this dude ain't foolin anybody with his 5'9'' claim. Either more investigation needs to occur, or this height needs to change lol. I'm about to get on that investigation as we would certainly help if somebody could actually see this guy in person. He seems to be quite the elusive little fella. Do you have anything further to add about this height, Rob?

[Editor Rob: hmm, I'm pretty sure he done a lot of the I Inside in barefoot...I'm not sure if he's shorter than this. Yes, someone must have met this dude!]
leonari said on 9/Jun/05
totally agree with mR. Awasome this guy is in the Tom Cruise area of height. I'd say he ain't above 5'7.5...
Mr. R said on 19/May/05
I was all set to agree with this 5-9 reading until I saw Ryan on Jay Leno's show last night. He looked almost 2 inches shorter than Leno, even though he tried to keep his distance. If Leno is 5-10, than Ryan may be 5-8.5. The other place to measure him is in the new movies Crash (Great Film!). Ryan has scenes with Matt Dillon (5-11) and Terrence Howard (6-1). He is clearly shorter than both, and while he does seem only 2 inches shorter than Dillon, I sense that there is either tricky camera work or tricky footwear.
JosephW said on 18/May/05
Buster those shoes that ryan and I think Culkin are wearing can increase your height 1 to 2 inches more. They're not elevator shoes, but they are more like work shoes. I know they increase your height between 1-2 inches on the back of the shoes because I own a pair like that for work. And when I walk into work I look like I am about 6 feet tall. dookie burger
Buster said on 14/May/05
5'9 sounds right. Kieran Culkin is listed 5'7.5 here and Phillippe is about two inches taller than him. They both wear similar types of shoes.
Lmeister said on 14/May/05
No way...5'8'' max
leonari said on 13/May/05
I say it's more like 5'7 , but the guy has a nice slim built but still somewhat muscular as seen in studio 54...And as our dear editor pointed out: He also has a hot wife who is on the very short side of things... I am 5'7" myself and my mother is also 5'2" and I am almost 3/4 of a head taller than her.
jack said on 12/May/05
i think he is shorter.. The guy doesn't look big at all. He looks to be about the same height as cruise. I'd say 5'7.5- 5'8 and 5'8 on a good day.
Mr. X said on 25/Apr/05
Go to Billy Bob Thorton's name on this site. Take a look at the photo of him standing next to 5 ft 9 Kelly Lynch, 6 ft or 5 ft 11 Hank Azaria and so not 6 ft Billy Bob Thorton, and you will see that Ryan and Billy Bob are liars.
Dude said on 1/Feb/05
My sister is the same height as Reese Witherspoon 5ft2in(157 cm)and when I am standing next to her(when she is wearing stilettos)our height difference is bigger than Ryans and Reeses and my height is around 5ft8in...So Ryan cannot be 5ft9in...I'd say 5ft7.5in...
