Comment on the Height of Taylor Kitsch

Rob he is a lot shorter than Jimmy Fallon who is 182 cm I guess he is around 177-178 maybe?
Andrea said on 9/Aug/15
Noticeably? He can look maybe 3 cms shorter, in some shots more 4... If you look at him with Alexander Skarsgard, he looks near 6 inches shorter than him, so this guy probably is 179 at best! Good to know he doesn't boost his height that much and he just claims 5'11! 5'10.25-5'10.5 is certainly a better shout for Taylor!

He appeared on Jimmy Fallon show recently and looked noticeably shorter

Reynolds at least has 7 cm on him. 181 cm can do.

Look at the comparison between him and fellow fnl actor Zach Gilford. Gilford claims to be 5 9" on some days, and lists as 5 9 others. Don't use the FNL set shots to compare angles on that show were everything because they had to make it them seems plausible as big time h s. football players. HE was quoted on that 140 as saying he regretted losing that much weight for the role.... dropping 40lbs to get to it so that makes sense to me. 5 `11 and 175 to 185 with his build seems logical. 6 foot comes from when he was squeezing in some extra height as a junior hockey prospect in Canada.. almost all pro hopefuls slip an extra inch on their bio sheets.

5ft10 flat tops, if he is 140lbs that would look like a rake thin. 10stone is very thin for such a height.
mateo said on 20/Jun/15
I would say 5'10" tops aswell. There's a picture of him standing right next to Colin Farrell filming true detective and they are identical. Colin even seems to have the edge but he is wearing Cowboy Boots.

@Editor Rob: Do you agree that you'd get the wrong idea by only looking at the shots with Parsons, Bomer and Ruffalo? I feel like a lot of those shots have a bit of barrel and pincushion distortion. Kitsch also stands more relaxed compared to Bomer's military posture and won't benefit from that at all. Somewhere in 179-180 cm zone is a good shout for Kitsch. Bomer can look a more solid 180 at times, but I wouldn't be surprised if there was only a few millimeters between their measured heights.

Stature wise they look more or less the same here: Click Here
[Editor Rob: they could be quite close, but I think Bomer still looks a bit, taller...whether that is 1cm or just a fraction is debatable.]

Hard to say....but some where between 5'10" and 5'11"....the picture with him and peter Berg its hard to tell how tall he is because he is standing behind Peter.....shoulder height seems about the same. If I had to take a guess...5'10"....not short but not very tall...good height for Hollywood without being considered short.

Solid 5 foot 10.
Joel Gardner 5'11.5 said on 19/Feb/15
I think 5'10 flat is about right
S.J.H said on 27/Jan/15
If Matt Bomer 5'11.25 then Kitsch was never a chance over 5'10

He is max 177 cm next to aaron johnson

Currently I understand the Dutch are the tallest men in the world. They are supposed to be about six feet. If this is true it would mean that Kitsch is taller than average in America and shorter than average in Holland. I think of him as an average size guy and he certainly is - somewhere or other.

BTW I like Kitsch or maybe I just like the three movies in which I've seen him. The critics unanimously hated 'John Carter', 'Battleship' and 'X-Men Origins'. Which can only mean that I have bad taste.

In Battleship he did look a bit like a runt. Maybe it was OK to have Neeson tower over him - he was the admiral after all. But his brother was played by the even taller Skarsgard. I don't know, maybe the milkman was very tall - but they didn't really look like brothers.

ItsCALE said on 27/May/14
Yeah, those are the shots. I really see below 5'10" I mean if fallon is over 6 feet than id by 5'10" range but i doubt fallon is over 6. Kitsch looks pretty tiny. Still sticking to 5'9.5" max.
ItsCALE said on 24/May/14
He just appeared on Jimmy Fallon so lets say Jimmy is a full 6 which we all sorta doubt. Kitch, looks 5'9" MAYBE 5'9.5" max on the show when they are standing side by side. Either Kitch is under 5'10" or Fallon is wearing some hefty lifts.
Andrea said on 9/Apr/14
More than "a weak 5'11 can't be ruled out", i'd say "5'11 must be ruled out"! Come on, look at him with Alexander Skarsgard! I really can't see him over 5'10.5 and there's a big chance he's under it! 5'10-5'10.5 is probably his range!
Khalid said on 7/Apr/14
To be honest he doesn't look as tall as 5'11, he looks more like 5'10.5
[Editor Rob: I suppose it can't be ruled out he could be weak 5ft 11]
Take A Moment To Think said on 4/Apr/14
When I first saw him on FNL, I figured he was close to 6'1. Maybe it was the hair
Bundy said on 28/Feb/14
Kitsch is 5'10", probably 160lbs. Aaron Johnson is 5'10" as well. Neither of them is anywhere near 6'0" or 5'11".
MD said on 3/Dec/13
I mean, I can get why the guy could pull off looking 5'11" in a solo shot, or even in a shot with other people with the right footwear, but there is no way he's a full 5'11", barefoot.
Mr. R said on 2/Dec/13
Thanks for the confidence MD. Thanks for the pic. Actually that pic was from another event the same day. Same clothes.
Balrog said on 1/Dec/13
If this guy is 5'10'' that would destroy Chace Crawford listing too since he was shorter than Kitsch in the Convenant. Also would put Reynolds under 6'2''.
MD said on 1/Dec/13

Mr. R is on to something, here. Here's the event Mr. R was speaking of in the post below with Mark Walberg and Emile Hersch:

I've been saying forever that this guy is 5'10" flat. He's pretty thin and long, but it's an illusion, obviously.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Nov/13
Rob, is 5ft10.5/179cm a closet estimate?
[Editor Rob: 5ft 10.5-11 is a likely range]
Mr. R said on 28/Nov/13
Saw Taylor last night. He is 5-10 at the tallest part of the day. 5-11 is a lie.
Jim said on 13/Nov/13
Battleship: Liam Neeson - 6ft 4in. Look at the difference when the two of them are walking side by side in the final scene. Taylor Kitsch is 5' 10" at best.
Lo sgozzatore said on 24/Oct/13
Rob, you yourself said that Kitsch is a weak 5'11. You should list him at 5'10.75... Not over it for sure!
Now that you finally upgraded Alexander Skarsgard to 6'4.25, this guy at 5'10.75 would be ok... I see at least 5.5-6 inches between them ;)
Gheist said on 5/Oct/13
Probably 178-179 range
NJP said on 3/Oct/13
Click Here next to 5ft11 Aaron Johnson. Johnson in mid stride is still taller than Kitsch.
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 28/Sep/13
Overbilled no question. He's 5'10 flat max.
cole said on 19/Aug/13
@MD: De Niro is 5'8 at most these days, I could even believe 5'7.5 for him. Ryan Phillippe is a 5'8 range guy wearing big boots in that shot. Taylor is wearing regular dress shoes. That being said, I don't think Kitsch looks like much of a strong 5'11 guy, he can look that range or more in boots, so maybe 5'10.5 is better, Rob. He does seem at least .5" shorter than Aaron Johnson whom I doubt is over 5'11 himself.
da_truth said on 27/Jul/13
I would guess 5'10" tops without footwear.
steadyparlayin said on 20/May/13
Short and too light to fight and too thin to win.
Len said on 22/Apr/13
He's 5'10" at most, and 5'9" is not out of bounds.

It's hilarious that in some place he tries to claim 6'0".
Balrog said on 13/Feb/13
I think Kitsch is okay at 180 cm. Yes could be 179 but I think Skarsgard deserves an upgrade rather Kitsch a downgrade.
Lo sgozzatore said on 10/Feb/13
Alex i agree with you that Skarsgard is 6'4-6'4.5 but i think that Kitsch could very well be 5'10.5!
Alex said on 7/Feb/13
Lo sgozzatore, Skaarsgard IS a 6'4''-6'4.5'' guy. If you go to his page you'll see that most people agree on that. So I'd say this listing is pretty accurate.
Lo sgozzatore said on 5/Feb/13
ahah rob i bet you would have given this exact reply... He looks less than a weak 5'11 next to Skarsgard... Aaron Johnson could be a weak 5'11, not this guy! If Skaarsgard is a big 6'4.5 guy (not impossible), then yeah, he could be a weak 5'11
Lo sgozzatore said on 5/Feb/13

I'm seeing at least 14-15 cms... Just upgrade Skarsgard or downgrade this guy... I'd say this guy is not over 5'10.5, possibly 5'10... Otherwise, Skarsgard could easily be 6'4-6'4.5...
[Editor Rob: as has been mentioned in the past when people talked about him looking a little shorter than aaron johnson, there is a chance he's a weak 5ft 11]
Lo sgozzatore said on 4/Feb/13
Rob, have you seen the pics with Alexander Skarsgaard? In a lot of them he really looks around 15 cms shorter... Now, for sure Skarsgaard is no less than 193-194 but 5'11 is still to high... He looks 5'10 max in a lots of pics... Maybe 5'10.5 but 5'11 is definitely too much for this guy, considering that he looked shorter than Aaron Douglas, who might be a weak 5'11 himself...
Trey said on 25/Dec/12
MD says on 2/Aug/12
He just doesn't look like a 5'11" guy, to me, especially given these low weights he keeps revealing. A true 5'11" guy weighing around 160-170lbs would look much thinner than he looks. I'm guessing he's 5'10", tops.

Wow, do you really think an average 5'11-guy would be a lot heavier than an average 5'10-guy? It's a 2 cm difference, man. As for Kitsch he's not 5'11. 5'10 or lower.
Lo sgozzatore said on 10/Dec/12
He looks way shorter than Alexander Skarsgard, shorter than Aaron Johnson... So 5'10-5'10.5 range could be closer!
Silent d said on 4/Oct/12
5 foot 10.
Jermaine said on 25/Sep/12
Check out the photo in Los Angles confidential of him and Oliver Stone... Stone is slouching but would easily have 2+ inches on him if he stood up straight. 5' 11" is a stretch if Stone is 6' or 6' 1" as he claims.
