Vin Diesel's Height is 5ft 11.75in (182 cm)

American actor best known for roles in films such as the Fast and the Furious series, Pitch Black, XXX, Boiler Room, The Iron Giant and Saving Private Ryan. Vin has been described at a mind-bogglingly optimistic "6ft 4ins". He has claimed "I'm 6ft 1" on a radio show, but wears thick heeled boots a lot of the time.

Comment on the Height of Vin Diesel

Ryan Allen, they can't. Even Rob cannot do that when he meets them in person.
S.J.H said on 25/Nov/15
6'1 in thick boots and 5'11.75 with dress shoes. Probably just a flat 5'11 guy not more
Ryan allen said on 19/Nov/15
Looks 6ft 1inch to 6ft 3 inch the rock when standing next to him , unless he really is a lift user ?
Ryan allen said on 19/Nov/15
I love this site but sometimes this site is too technical! Can somebody tell me how they can tell The difference between an individual that's 511.75 ? to someone that's 6ft Buy plain sight?
Rod said on 12/Nov/15
rob update this, he is 5'10
5'10 guy said on 30/Oct/15
same height as chuck Norris...this moron wears boots with lifts in them all the time...what's wrong with people? I guess penis size and height has a direct correlation between many actors with height are worse than women nowadays....women wear tons of makeup guys wear lifts and lie about height...In person there always smaller/ uglier with no makeup...
dmeyer said on 28/Oct/15
He look smaller than me near deniro he can look 5'11 flat
Rory said on 25/Oct/15
Almost an inch shorter than 82 yr old Michael Caine, and as always with him even though I didn't see his shoes, chances are he had footwear say 5'11.25 or .5 is likely.
andrew said on 22/Oct/15
182 maybe more
DougQuiadHauser said on 21/Oct/15

Interesting pic, but the big question is, did Vin have the big boots on? I could imagine Vin rolling about on the mat whilst wearing his klompers :D
joe joe said on 21/Oct/15
Rob. I can't believe Vin is still at 1m82 here. All the evidence points at him being a 5' 10 liftwearer
Rory said on 17/Oct/15
Yh with Jonathan Ross looked about an inch shorter and had 2 inch boots on compared to Ross' normal dress shoes.
jordydecke said on 17/Oct/15
Ha! Anyone catch Vin Diesel on Jonathan Ross tonight (17/10/15) ? Wearing some insanely built-up boots, almost like heels - and with those he looks the same height as Jonathan. I'd say he's 5'10 or maybe even 5'9.5 barefoot. We're roughly the same build and I'm a genuine 5'11 and I'm convinced if we stood toe to toe (no shoes/lifts) I'd be taller.
Lmeister said on 15/Oct/15
Vin is around 5ft11. Here he is posing with Marcus Vinicius(5ft9)jiu-jitsu instructor. You can also find Marcus posing with Guy Ritchie, Jason Statham and Scott Caan. Ritchie seems to be the same height as Diesel so more or less 5ft11 and Statham a bit shorter than Marcus maybe 5ft8.5.

So crazy how I used to full on believe that this guy was a jacked 6ft2 guy and Walker was a gangly 6ft4!
JohnB said on 15/Sep/15
Here is Vin with Jonathan Ross who is listed at 6'1. Watch at 3:56 Click Here when they hug. Vin appears to be around an half/ to an inch shorter. Vin is wearing massive thick boots compared to Jonathans slim dress shoes. This will probably give Vin an extra 2-3 inches. His barefoot height is around 5'10.5 MAX.
Candyman said on 15/Sep/15
This guy is one of the most nonchalant about his height huh? Look how relaxed he is in every photo. He just stands head and shoukders above them all even though he is usually wearing low heeled shoes and all. Must be nice to be so secure.
L24 said on 3/Sep/15
at best he is 5'11

Alex, Walker was 6ft2 not 6ft1


Walker himself has claimed 6'1".
[Editor Rob: to be fair, he has 2 quotes out there, 6ft 1 and 6ft 3.]
Kiiingy said on 22/Aug/15
In one of the Furious movies, I think the 5th one, there's a "wanted" photo of Vin's character with his description, and it said Height 5'9. Paul's said 6ft 2
[Editor Rob: I would be shocked if Vin let such a thing happen, 5ft 9, he'd be going ballistic.]
Aza said on 20/Aug/15
@Rampage I do agree that Walker was 6'2.

Then why was he barely taller than Joshua jackson in Skulls ? Paul looked about the same height and Jackson is at most a 6'1 guy. I agree with Alex, Vin is a solid 5'11 just like Paul was a solid 6'1. They would both measure a bit over the mark.
Carlo said on 19/Aug/15
it is quite clear that he does not have long legs... at best he is 5'11

Even though he looks the same height as Paloma rob do u think it could be the camera angle or the ground possibly making him look the same height as Paloma

Could pass for 6'0 but looks maybe more 5'11 range with 6'1 Paul Walker
Anonymous said on 15/Aug/15
Why do you think he's 182cm rob, have you seen the video on YouTube of how much his shoes give him. I did some research on the shoes he wears and they add 5 inches to his additional height. Look at his interview with Jonathan Ross 2013 and you'll see how awkward he looks when he stands still with the boots.
[Editor Rob: these are the boots he wore at Riddick premiere with Katie Sackhoff Click Here.

To get almost 4 inches in boots, they might have a higher front like this: Dons vs Caterpillars.

To me, Diesel at times looks like he just wears work boots, logger or combat boots. He may well put a lift inside them, although anything significant would make the front bulge noticeably.
184.3cm (Night) said on 13/Aug/15
He does indeed look 6' most of the time. Have you looked at his footwear? He wears huge boots with a suit, wears them to a pool party, on beach.I dont believe for one second he is 183cm.
Height183 said on 12/Aug/15
He looks 6'0'' to me most of the time. This listing is spot on in my opinion,
Balrog said on 11/Aug/15
I think he could deep 5'11'', like 5'10.75''. I honestly think he could be just 180-181cm. This guy is aware of his height, and wouldn't surprise me at all if he wears custom boots made only for him.
Johnny said on 10/Aug/15
5'9 1/2 barefoot
5'10 in regular shoes

He's 5 foot 10. His monster customs easily make him 6 foot anytime.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Aug/15
@Danimal: you've wasted over a decade of your worthless life trolling around on this thing. Insulting people whose opinions differ from yours because you have no real friends.

@Lorne: it's hardly absurd since he is listed close to 6ft on here. You can get boots that give 2in or more. Vin could easily clear 6ft1 range in them. Even if he was 5ft11 flat (which Rob doubts).

Around the 58-59 second mark of the video it shows him and tony jaa and his height barefoot. If you ask me i'd say he looks 5'9 to 5'10 what do you think Rob and pause it quickly on the 58 second mark

do you think hes wearing height insoles or lifts
[Editor Rob: that shoe looks pretty normal. No excessive bulging to suggest lifts.]
tyson67 said on 22/Jul/15
I hope he is 5.10
Gx79 said on 17/Jul/15
Rob how big are his shoe lifts
[Editor Rob: he wears cat style boots a lot. These are putting him in 1.4-1.7 range...does he have a small lift inside the boots for an extra 1/2 inch? It is very possible.

You ain't going to see Diesel at any events or movies in converse sneakers...]
hijopotamus said on 11/Jul/15
Under 5'11"?? I always thought Vin was 6'1" min. Any pics of Vin and Brad Pitt together? That would be very interesting to discuss who is taller.
rtzzt said on 5/Jul/15
NOWHERE near 182cm
Dmeyer said on 30/Jun/15
Some of his shoes give just 4-4.2cm and hé looks easy 6'0 in thèm so has to be listed height
Aza said on 23/Jun/15
He looks close to listed height. He probably wears lifts to propagate the stereotype persona he has created in films making him a multi millionaire. Smart guy.
cactus biscuit said on 21/Jun/15
If the Rock is 6ft 3in and in fast and furious 6 and furious 7 he looks a little more than Vin Diesel than we can be damn sure Vin Diesel is no taller than 5ft 11in maybe 6ft at most
Maximus said on 21/Jun/15
Vin is minimum 5'10" to 5'11".....which is not short...c'mon....he doesn't come across as short on screen like cruise and pacino. I am 5'10 1/4" without shoes around 6' with shoes and have never been considered short by anyone.....Vin Diesel is in that range and on film he doesn't come across as short because guess what he isn't....short is around 5'7" or shorter not 5'10" or 5'11"..get for real jealous people.

Sam said on 4/Jun/15
5-10.75. Doesn't look that much above average liftless and proportion-wise, closer to 5-10 than 6 foot if only by a fraction. Can easily get away with 5-11 but I think nearer 6 foot is a bit too optimistic. Claiming his height just an inch too high (from 6 foot to 6-1) is way too modest for someone like Vin Diesel, especially if you see what kind of boots he wears he can obviously get away with claiming 6-1. Its the standard 1 inch rule, 2 inch rule if you wear lifts.
sean said on 3/Jun/15
no waaaay, he's 180cm at best! 179cm suits him best TBH
gian92 said on 2/Jun/15
Rob he is max 5'11 ! And he is ridicolous with the boots !

Funny vid Rob! But you still have Vin at 1m82!!!????
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/May/15
Rob, are you still convinced that he's near 6ft?
[Editor Rob: I believe at worst he would be 5ft 11.5]
Tim1.79 said on 21/May/15
LOOOOL Rob, that was a good one, and so true about Vin. Did you see him with Tony Jaa? He looked no more than just a bulky 180cm, 182cm is hardly to believe

Haha that video, he looks max 5 inches taller than Tony Jaa who is 168cm (5'6) , say goodbye to almost 6 foot.
Everyone should look at that vid from Brax.

The thing with this site is that most people only see what they want to see. I'd say about 90% or more of the people on this site already know what they WANT the person to be and they refuse to acknowledge anything that contradicts their preconceived idea.
Danimal said on 12/May/15
I notice a trend with guys who wear massive lifts (Justin Bieber, Stallone, Vin Diesel, Robert Downey Jr., Tom Cruise, etc). They all for some reason have Rob fooled? haha

Lorne??? said on 30/Apr/15
I'm sorry rampage, but 6'2 in boots is absurd.

He likely does hit 6ft out of bed, but there is no way he really is 5'11.75... That would make him, for all intents and purposes, a 6 footer, and he simply isn't. Somewhere 5'11-5'11.5 is reasonable.
Andrea said on 30/Apr/15
Well, Arch. A guy who is 5'11 is generally about 5'11.75 out of bed, not 6'... Most of the people do lose around 0.75 inch. So 6' out of bed implies 5'11.25 at evening, unless he loses a big inch (which on very long and "hard" days is not totally impossible)!
Arch Stanton said on 30/Apr/15
I think he would be an honest 6 ft out of bed, but I sure wouldn't be betting top dollar that he's near 6'1 out of bed and easily clears it! I think of him as about 5 ft 11.
Tymmo said on 29/Apr/15
In my opinion, he is yet to be seen without lifts in his big ass heeled boots, so we can't really tell his barefoot height, I would assume somewhere around 5'10''
Andrea said on 29/Apr/15
Hey guys, remember big Rob has said he is SURE (which is strange since he always says it's all about guesses) Vin would clear 183 out of bed, so the absolute minimum for him is 5'11.25-5'11.5...
joe joe said on 24/Apr/15
I'm pretty sure I saw Vin walking down the street wearing these the other day Click Here No but on a serious note anyone who says this guy isn't a lift wearer is deluded. He obviously has an issue with his height because he rocks massive boots most of the time even when he wears a suit. Even if it looks utterly ridiculous. Also he adopts military posture in most photos whilst everyone is relaxed. look at this pick that we are all by now familiar with. Don't look at Vin, but look at everyones posture. Click Here You will find all standard relaxed photo postures. Then look at the angle of their feet relative to the ground. They all have their feet flat. more or less horizontaly parallel to the ground. Even the rock who is wearing what seem to be Timberlands. Now look at vin. He is sporting an uncomfortably erect posture to go with the boots that would give Herman Munster a run for his money. On top of that, the angle of his feet look like he's on tip toes. An obvious sign of lift inserts. Its seems to me he's packing at least 2 inches in there. 6'2 Paul walker is rocking Vans and is in a very relaxed posture and still has an inch or so on a supposedly 5'11.75 guy in massive boots and lifts!!!!!???? I personly would give Vin 5'11 flat because if he was 6ft as you basically have him Rob he would scan a lot taller than he does here.
mike 1.82 said on 24/Apr/15
kkkkkk Rampage(-_-_-)Clover are u crazy? kkkkk Diesel 1.84cm out of bed? He is less than 1.80 out of bed
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Apr/15
184cm straight out of bed is still possible
Lorne??? said on 17/Apr/15
Lol I had a dream(I should say nightmare!) that Rob upgraded him to 184cm, and Rob kept saying "I was right from the beginning!"

Dear no, Rob, don't do it!!!
184.3cm said on 17/Apr/15
(His chest measurement might even be a inch or two more than the Rock's.)

Cmon lets be serious now, Dwayne dwarfs him when he isnt packing. He has tried to claim before that he is just 3 in under him and everyone doubts him. He can actually look quite slim at times, not jacked at all. Now look at Dwayne 2015...he is massive.

Rob has Paul Walker at 6ft 2 and Vin here at 5'11.75. I agree with the height difference from pics i saw when they both had dress shoes. However Paul claimed 6'1 as his height. Being a guy though who is tall he probably left the fraction off as i believe he was 186cm solid. They gave him 185cm but what american claims in cm??? Nah it was just 6'1 he said im sure.

So Paul Walker- 6'1.5 Vin- 5'11.25 Nomore than this barefoot in the afternoon.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Apr/15
At this height...6ft1½-2 in boots

Vin Diesel is only average height but the guy is built like a giant. He was a bouncer after all. His chest measurement might even be a inch or two more than the Rock's

They laugh at his munster boots with Sackhoff above. Has a sick problem with his height.
Kourosh said on 13/Apr/15
181 cm barefoot. with his 2.5 inches monster boots he is still an inch or so shorter than walker. Walker was a about 6'2.

but i gotta say this guy looks ridicoulos with his boots im wondering what his crews and friends think of him when they see him in his monster boots.

This is the pic I'm referring to in my last comment sorry. Click Here

He could have a lot inside and looking at the shape of his boots I´m pretty sure he has. the sole gives already 4cm and I think he has 2cm-1" inside help.

Walker is in ~1 inch footwear so Dmeyer is absolutely right there with 6´1.5" and ~6´2.5" in shoes

Diesel has camera advantage,
he is a full inch shorter so 6´1.5" - 2.5" lift and footwear } 5´11" flat
mike 1.82 said on 9/Apr/15
Duhon that pic is a proof. take a look again. Vin Diesel Boots is at LEAST 7cm level up, to be nice. i think is a 12cm boots i saw somehere in the web. that pic Paul Walker looks 1.87 cm. so vin is 1.85. Vin diesel is NEVER more than 1.80 its ridiculous and dumber hahaha i 1.76 to be nice 1.77 max
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/15
182-183cm is bang on
Dmeyer said on 9/Apr/15
In that pic his boots seem to give Max 1-1.5cm more than walker and he looks 1in smaller , to me walker is about 6'2 but évén he is 6'1.5 wish means 6'2.5-2.75 with those shoes on , wich brings vin to 6'1.5 shoes while his shoes dont évén give a full 2in , so 5'11.75 is defenetly a good listing , i use to think his boots gave 2-2.25in but typing vin diesel shoes on Google image i realized his shoes give more in the 1.5-1.75 zone and yet wearing those he looks a bit over 6ft , so rob is right 5'11.75 might be closer than 5'11.5 ,
Duhon said on 8/Apr/15

Based on Vin's footwear in this pic what is the most Vin is gaining realistically from those boots he's wearing, assuming he's also got lifts in them/they are elevtors?
Dmeyer said on 7/Apr/15
He Likes shoes Like nike show and bikers type that give 1.3-1.7in , he can look 6'0-0.75 while in shoes under 2in rob is right 5'11.75 at worst 11.5
R35GTR said on 7/Apr/15
Judging from Fast and Furious series, Vin is at least 10cm shorter than Paul Walker, Paul is 188cm maximum, while my guess is around 185-187cm, Vin is definitely under 180cm...
the shredder said on 7/Apr/15
Vin at 5 10 is insane , 5'11 to 6 ft seems right , 6'1 in big boots.
teej said on 6/Apr/15
As much as I love him as an actor, just saw fast 7 he's absoloutley terrific. But when I see him even in his elevator shoes he doesnt even look a full 6'1, which he claims to be. I wouldnt be suprised if he was 180cm flat, or below slightly. Watching him in older movies, pitch black, chronicles of riddick, fast and furious. He looks 180-179cm. And 4-5cm shorter than actors like cole hauser who i believe is in the 184-185cm range. Shows he's no way near 6'1. And if he is 5'11 he is only just.
Dmeyer said on 6/Apr/15
I looked at diesel footwear they give 1.4-1.75in type nothing huge and he looks over 6ft the listing is right
Hypado said on 6/Apr/15
I watched all the Fast & Furious movies, Vin Diesel looks 5ft 11.5 or 5ft 11.75 in. 182 cm listing is fine for him.
mike 1.82 said on 6/Apr/15
Fast 7 fight scene with Statham he uses boots lifts . i can agree Statham is a 1.70 cm to be nice with him, and Vin Diesel is 1.76 cm. barefoot of course. Paul Walker is 1.83cm - 1.85 barefoot. Dwayne is 1.87- 1.89cm barefoot max REMEMBER people 1.83 is a big person so as 1.87- 1.89. Dwayne is a Strong man of course . paul walker fight scene with tony jaa both with boots make 1.68 listed to a 1.83 guy Paul looks like. I think this is the real Deal

Fast 7 beach scene Diesel even in the sands uses big boots, that ridiculous, proof he e not tall. 1,76 is top for him

Walker with Dwayne Johnson:

Johnson is about 6-3, 6-2 absolute minimum. That means Walker is around 6-2 as well.

This is the absolute best picture you will find with Diesel and Walker:

Now Diesel isn't as tall as Walker, but there's no way he's wearing 4 inch lifts, which he would have to be if he was 5-10. So it's pretty safe to say he's taller than that.

Drob92 said on 19/Mar/15
I just have a hardtime believeing he's anywhere near 5'11.75 barefoot especially lol. Vin is 5'11 5'11.25 Max (morning height) the only person who may wear more thick shoes than this man is Tom cruise. He's def height councious, which is why he feels the need for thick shoes.

181 cm. Fooled people for years with impeccable posture and heeled boots.
Panda said on 17/Mar/15
Rob do you think somewhere between 5'10" and 5'11" is possible for Diesel? His 5'11.75" is most definitely in his boots and so if 1.5-2 inches were knocked off then that would make him between 5'9.75" and 5'10.25". Hmm I think he is 5'10" barefoot, maybe 5'10.5" max.
[Editor Rob: I would say you could argue 5ft 11 for him, but anyless I don't think I could argue it.]

Can't see him being that low teej. If he is 5'10 then he is 5'10.75-5'11 range.

Vin Diesel - Morning 183 cm ( About 6'0 on the nose)
Afternoon 181-182 ( 5'11 1/2 range)
Evening 181 cm ( 5'11.25)
Darren510 said on 18/Feb/15
I don't believe Vin diesel is packing lifts in his already big healed boots. Walker was around 6'2 and Diesel usually appeared an inch shorter. If he is just getting the height from his boots and no lifts then he is 5'11.5 - 6'0
teej said on 16/Feb/15
Ive always doubted whether he is 182cm (5'11.5). Its seemingly obvious he wears elevator shoes (or very thick and unusual looking boots which deviate his posture to looking unatural as if hes wearing heels). Anyways, even with these boots, he was never as tall as paul walker, and in guardians of galaxy premiere he looks a good 2/2.25 inches shorter than 6'2 chris pratt. For a guy who claims 6'1 he's far from it, and i doubt he's even 5'11. Looks like a 5'10 average joe to me. Do you think 5'10 is realistic Rob?
Sam said on 12/Feb/15
5'10.75. Seems above average slightly but not close to 6ft without his big boots.

Yes Hypado, he does look almost 6' there but has he got lifts in those boots? His posture to me is a giveaway it looks like he is standing on something inside his boot.
Joe said on 2/Feb/15
He is one of those actors where its hard to tell his height, he is very well built, I thought he was definitely over 6 feet tall, he is not 5'10" or something like that, he is around 6 feet at least. He seemed to be around Samuel L Jackson's height in XXX, who is 6'2" and he looked like a giant in Saving Private Ryan. He is a big guy but not a giant, but when I first saw him in Saving Private Ryan, I thought he was 6'4" or bigger, he was huge, that is why I thought his character got shot first, because he seemed like such a big target.

in this photo with Katee Sackhoff, Vin Diesel looks 182 cm even.
Tim1.79 said on 24/Jan/15
This guy and all his attempts to look taller are just ridiculous. He has very obvious anxiety about his height, but why hes so unconfident at about 5-11?
Can't see him over 180cm without his boots
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jan/15
In his biggest lifts he probably could hit 6ft2

Kourosh177cm, it's important to always consider footwear when talking bout Vin Diesels height. That guy literally sleeps in his monster boots
184.3cm said on 29/Dec/14
Katee there is 5'5.5 barefoot (Rob met) 5'8.5 max in those heels. Vin is tilting his head back giving the illusion his eyelevel is higher than it is. Looks 5-5.5 inch max difference. So he does reach 6'1.5 in whatever that footwear is. Regular boot would mean he is 6'0 or slightly more but we know Vin he has an inch at least in there so he is most likely 5'11 range.
184.3cm said on 29/Dec/14
That photo says it all really, boots with a suit?? And it looks like he is standing on something wedged to the max there.
HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 27/Dec/14
There´re a lot of barefoot pics of him and his legs look way shorter than pics of him wearing his magic boots...
he never managed to give more than a 6´1" impression even in big boots...
6´1.5" Paul Walker was even in flat flats taller than Big Booted Vinnie...

Same as Arnie about 5´11" give or take a quater...
sixfooter said on 24/Dec/14
Does he have any idea how ridiculous it looks to wear boots with a suit? The irony is late Paul Walker almost always wore converse, but he was always comfortably taller than him & his high heels. 5'10

You're sure he's over 183 out of bed? Would you bet your house on it, Rob? And bear in mind we're talking about Vin Diesel, he's a master in looking taller than he is, always!
Maximus said on 29/Nov/14
So when is 5'10" to 5'11" inches short???? Vin diesel is not short or he would come across like Cruise, Pacino, Hoffman, on film and he doesn't so get over it most likely he is around 5'10.5 not short...with shoes on a little over 6'
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Nov/14
Rob, is 184cm out of bed possible?
[Editor Rob: I'm sure he will clear over 183 out of bed.]

Have a look at this. Well, maybe it's uneven ground, but if not, Diesel is shorter than 180 Tyrese

Maximus said on 2/Nov/14
let be realistic.....Vin diesel is not what you would consider short in Hollywood terms. For example, pacino, Hofman,Cruise, are obvious shorter than average on film....Vin.....doesn't come across as any where as being shorter than average on film so its fair to say that he is between 5'10" amd 6' tall.....I believe he is minimum 5'11" tall which is not short and almost 6' tall.....that's why he doesn't come across as short on films unlike pacino, Hofman, Diesel is a good height for a leading man.

Definitely near the 6 foot mark. His pictures with paul walker make him look 5'11.5 minimum. Tyrese looks much shorter than his 5'10.75 listing in comparison.

Vin has the right build to jump from a 5'11 guy to a 6'1 guy in meaty footwear.

Doesn't get much better than this. Johnson looks to be in some heavy footwear but he's also the tallest easily, he's about 6'4'' at least in those boots. Paul Walker in more flat sneakers he was a solid 6'1.5 barefoot.

Seems like a lot of folks want Diesel shorter, he's around 5'11''.
Supermann said on 8/Aug/14
Omg. I just proved vin is clearly shorter than 5'11" next to Fallon and you guys still roam around that height.. And rob doesnt change the height... Pfff
[Editor Rob: they are in motion in the clip and Fallon could be closer, I wouldn't use it as definitive proof vin was barely 5ft 11.]
RisingForce said on 6/Aug/14
Rob, what do you think of the Fallon clip? Think it's time to shave a least a little height off Vin? After all, I remember you agreeing he looked more 5'11"-5'11.5" range in a video with the Rock too.
Blink said on 5/Aug/14
Ye, in that vid with Jimmy Fallon I'd say no more than a flat 5'11.

All i can say is hah! Shredder, risingforce. U guys are delusional. You where wrong all along. And guess what. You are so obviously wrong again. Wtf how can anybody take you serious? :) if vin dont get a serious downgrade after that clip - this is the land of the blind!
the shredder said on 4/Aug/14
agree 5'11.
RisingForce said on 3/Aug/14
Vin's shoes actually look pretty normal there and he does look shorter than Fallon who is listed at 5'11.5" here. A downgrade to 5'11.5" at least would be good, but he could be closer to 5'11" flat. Even with his boots(which I'm convinced at least sometimes have lifts) and Stallone posture, he was still always shorter than Paul Walker who stood casually and often wore converse.

Rob has this one bang on. Diesel is 5 11 1/2" and well built. Not as physically opposing in person as the big screen portrays but well put together and always in shape. Fast and furious 1 makes him out to be Walkers height but not close. Most people go eye to eye with him in films. Diesel 5 11 1/2" tops barefoot. Depending on the film and lifts between 6" to 6 2"
Fellaini said on 10/Jul/14

RisingForce said on 9/Jul/14
Supermann, I never said I believed she was 5'11", I said she's been listed at both 5'10" and 5'11", though I can see how it came out looking that way the way I wrote it. Anyone, I don't know exactly how tall she is, but for reference or arguments sake, I'd be fine going with the lower figure of 5'10" for now for her. Regardless, your 172 cm estimate for Vin is trolling. He's nothing under 5'11" and I'd guess 5'11.5", but I don't think he's taller than that.
Corinne said on 8/Jul/14
I went to the party for the Boiler Room premiere movie in 1999
The entire cast was there in New York. We hung out with
Taylor Nichols (nice guy) and saw Vin Diesel. He is definitely buffed
But not so tall. He's about 5'7" Ben Affleck is about 6 feet.
Giovanni R. Is about 5'4". I also met Paul Newman at the Limerock race track
In Connecticut. My husband used to race with him.
I was surprised to see that he wasn't very tall but what a
Class act he was. He was 77 when I met him
And he was racing until he was around 80.
Supemann said on 1/Jul/14
yea risingforce - you believe she is 5'11" but i believe she is below 5'10" .model agencies do fluff height. fact is she is a slim leggy 5'8" :=O yeaaah. i have seen 5'8" as her height too..and if you are a betting man. you wouldn't bet not the highest height from the modeling agencies would ya?

VInnie is wayyy under 5'11" ...really mind blowing some guys percept things so drastically wrong.
RisingForce said on 17/Jun/14
Rare picture of Vin in dress shoes with his girlfriend Paloma Jimenez. Click Here Her modeling height has been given as 5'10" and I believe 5'11" as well, but even if she's only 5'10", she could be close to 6'1" in those heels and Vin looks slightly taller, but he has perfect posture and you can see that she's bending a bit and dropping height. Not perfect pictures, but if you look at others, it looks possible she'd be taller in heels than he is in dress shoes if she weren't dropping height. Click Here Click Here And another where she straightens up and looks taller in heels than he does in dress shoes. Click Here

He's clearly not under 5'11", imo, and while I think this listing is close, I think Rob would be closer if she shaved off the quarter inch because I don't think he seems any closer to 6 feet than 5'11" when considering his elevator boots. 5'11.5" would be the best guess, imo. He's an obvious lift wearer. Just look at how it looks like he's standing on his toes in his boots again. Click Here Vin looks to be in lifts and might just edge out Paloma in heels with her knee bent while Vin has military posture, and they still look virtually the same height. Vin looks like he'd struggle to even reach 6'1" in those boots.

I saw him in hollywood last year, he wasn't close to me but i would say he is like 178 at most, and like 183 with his big ass boots on.
RisingForce said on 6/Jun/14
Good picture, cobra. I have a hard time believing Walker was 6'2" since he claimed 6'1", but he looks taller than a flat 6'1" to me so I'll assume he was about 6'1.5" and should be at least 6'2.5" in those shoes, maybe slightly more and he's only a hair taller than Vin there so Vin has to be around 6'2" in those boots and is passing for his 6'1" claim. Vin looks like he has lifts in those boots, imo based on his knee height, posture, angle of his foot compared to Walker and they are thick enough boots to put a big lift in, but I don't believe for a second he's getting anything more than a 3 inch boost max, and likely less. He's definitely not under 5'11" at any time of the day, imo. I think he's 5'11.5", seems like he'd be right between 5'11" and 6 feet without his boots, and easily looks over 6 feet with them, even 6'1" as he looks there.
Bernardo said on 6/Jun/14 - seems reasonable. I'm guessing 5'10.5
ian c. said on 31/May/14
Apparently Vin is the same height as Elvis Presley was when he was alive, which is to say, a quarter of an inch short of the magic Tall Guy mark. All I can say is, when I die and am applying to be admitted to heaven, I hope the admissions committee isn't as picky about fractions of inches (so to speak) as Celebrity Heights. Because when I get turned down at the gates of heaven, I want it to be at least a foot, you know what I mean? None of this quarter of an inch stuff, if you get me. And I think that you do.

Wahlberg and Diesel are almost the same height
Concerned said on 22/Apr/14
I think 5'11.25/181 cm or maybe even 5'11 flat is better for Vin. I basically have the same opinion as most other commenters here; he looks too short with his lifts next to genuinely tall guys for him to actually be about six feet tall.
wingwalker said on 9/Apr/14
I'll join the choir doubting his listing here. He looks to be 6'1'' at best, and that's when he stands perfectly straight in thick boots which are most likely lifts, like here:

Seahawkfan you nailed IMO. Those would be my estimates as well, although I'd put Diesel at a flat 5'11"
RisingForce said on 17/Mar/14
Vin is one of the celebrities I'm most sure wears lifts. Aside from wear thick boots 99% of the time, something often just looks off. Image # 166763319 on Getty Images from 4/16/13 in Las Vegas is a good example of what I'm talking about. Vin looks like he's standing on something in his boots, his foot doesn't appear flat, just compare it to Paul Walker standing next to him. The side angle shows this particularly well, and his lower leg simply appears too long. He appears quite awkward here as well, like he's standing on something once again. Click Here That picture isn't doing him any favors since Tyrese is listed here at just 5'10.75", and Mr. R's story that he was told he was too tall at 5'11.5" to be Tyrese's stand in suggests he could even be closer to 5'10", and Vin's elevators and forced posture should give him a pretty nice advantage yet even if Tyrese is 5'10.75", Vin isn't looking any taller than 6 foot. Plus, I think Paul Walker was more 6'1.5" than 6'2" yet Paul is standing further from the camera with loose posture and flat sneakers that could give Vin close to a 2 inch footwear advantage, yet Vin still doesn't appear any taller. Not ideal to compare Vin with Walker since they aren't side by side, and they're outside, but if Paul was only 6'1" as he claimed, then Vin's height is even more questionable. I've thought 5'11.5" was a pretty good guess for a while and he can look like a legit 6 footer, but considering his boots, lifts and posture, I'm thinking he might be closer to 5'11" than 6 feet, but clearly taller than 5'9"-5'10" range.

He's pulling off close to 6'1" here, though. Click Here Back to back, Paul is only slightly taller than Vin in boots, probably not even an inch. Maybe Paul is dropping a bit of posture, but if Vin doesn't have lifts and just the boot advantage, that'd put him at no shorter than 6 feet. With lifts, he'd still likely be at least 5'11", but it's kind of funny he was listed at 6'2" about 10 years ago.

Soupeman said on 11/Mar/14
Come on rob he is no more than your height max. Try a pair of Timbs(few sizes bigger than you normally would) and smack a decent lift inside it. Suddenly you are near the 6ft mark.
Andrea said on 10/Mar/14
Yeah, Rob. He has impeccable posture, i'd say ridicolous at times! Plus very thick shoes and i wouldnt be surprised if he decided to pick up a good pair of lifts for some events. Would you be surprised if he turned out to be even under 5'11 under a stadiometer? Or that sounds impossible to you? I admit i've seen nothing of him except some pictures, though...
[Editor Rob: it would be very surprising if he did measure sub 5ft 11]

Realistically he is probably around 5'10" to 5'11".....this is probably very true because of his desire to wear very thick healed shoes...if he were 6' to 6'1 he probably wouldn't be trying so hard to be tall.....why?...because at 6' with shoes he would be around 6'1" to 6'2" need for super thick shoes.

Walker is 6'1", which would put Vin at 5'10" or 5'10.5" at most. Vin being 5'11" or taller is pure nonsense. He's clearly wearing 2-3 inch lifts.

@RobV, You are correct, Vin is clearly wearing 2-3 inch lifts in his boots, lots of evidence points towards this. But there will never be 100% proof of anyone wearing lifts.

RobV said on 6/Jan/14
@ gsbr. Interesting point about Diesel's boots being so thick-soled it almost makes you think he might not use elevators/lifts (too obvious) - as a lift/elevator user myself, I have always in the past fought shy of getting boots that look too clumpy. Frankly, stuff that is too thick soled can make it look like you are wearing height additions when you aren't! With his access and money, he could buy made-to-measure undetectable elevators which could easily add 2" and fairly easily 3". But there is also the counter-intuitive argument as well. Wear thick soles, people think your just wearing clumpy boots that add an inch, and in fact you have elevators/lifts in them giving you some serious lift. Remember, nothing is impossible in showbiz, it's all an illusion and things get taken to what average people think are crazy degrees.

You say no-one has ever produced evidence of Diesel wearing lifts - indeed not, but then no-one has ever produced evidence of anyone famous using lifts (other than comment and opinion and conjecture). You'd need to get photos of him waving them in the air or manage to get into his wardrobe. Even the comments about John Wayne mentioned elsewhere are rumour put about by actors/associates who probably had an agenda or an axe to grind.

I go up 2 inches in off the shelf boots with a spenco insole, so it's possible he may get 3 inches or more from custom shoes, since his budget is unlimited.
gsbr said on 4/Jan/14

Even if custom elevator boots can be placed in lifts A.) it's counterproductive to put lifts in big heeled footwear and B.) nobody has provided evidence of Diesel wearing lifts.
Bo said on 4/Jan/14
Claiming your 6'1 means 5'10... claiming 6'2 means 5'11.... he has a 5'9" build though.
James said on 2/Jan/14

Custom Elevator Boots, which can still be padded with inserts and lifts.
Legend said on 31/Dec/13
He's 5'10
gsbr said on 30/Dec/13

If you think he's wearing shoe lifts, prove it.
MD said on 30/Dec/13
You can not be serious.
rj said on 30/Dec/13
hes 5-10. truth.
gsbr said on 28/Dec/13
Like I said, if Diesel really is wearing lifts, why is he also wearing enormous boots? Lifts are supposed to be discreet and thick heeled boots are anything but that. There is no concrete evidence of him wearing shoe lifts.
johnmcc said on 26/Dec/13
The listing would be right on if he didnt wear those massive boots. I think they give about 5cm they are thick. His posture is Always forced nowadays but i concede that hes possibly 180cm 5'10.75. With that footwear though i just dont see him being more than that.
MD said on 26/Dec/13
You're not seriously arguing that he doesn't wear lifts at times, are you? Because this guy is one of the most obvious offenders. We're not just talking difference in footwear choice, but what he has in his footwear on any given day. This much is obvious from years of pictures.
gsbr said on 23/Dec/13

A pre-2011 image of Diesel wearing these boots has yet to be posted. Here's a photo from 2001 where Paul Walker has at least two inches on him.

Diesel's decision to wear boots instead of dress shoes comes down to preference. The fact that he prefers boots implies he does not have hidden lifts- what would be the point in hiding them when his footwear advantage is already obvious?
James said on 23/Dec/13

If vin put on some normal footwear he'd be the same height as Tyrese in that pic.
The Exorcist said on 23/Dec/13
Looks 5'11.5"- 6'0" range with Paul Walker. This 5'11.75" listing is a reasonable one.

Vin Is definitely 6'1-1.5 boots on they seem to give 1.8in so that exacly 5'11.25-11.75 without, now he he has a 1in lift inside the shoes will give 2.3-2.4in that will make him still 5'10.75 range so stop with 5'10 flat nonesens , even if he has 2in heels plus 2 in lifts those will give altogether 3in , since the foot is pivoting very mush in a 4in heel and he walks normaly so very lidl to no lifts , vin is 5'11.2-11.8 181-182cm
johnmcc said on 21/Dec/13
f he really was this height he would be like 186-187 range in those boots of his..thats without lifts. I measured myself 186 range in timberlands and im this height. He doesnt look 6'1 1/2 does he? He looks like a 6 footer boots on which puts him again in the 5'10 - 5'10 1/2 range.
James said on 20/Dec/13

He doesn't necessarily wear them all the time, as you've shown, but he has been wearing customer elevators for years so it would be second nature to diesel by now.

With regards to dress shoe's I would say proper dress shoes are a solid inch heel, however you see many actors with dress shoes with chunkier heels which are clearly designed to boost height, just follow one of the many links off this site to Dons, have a look at the range of dress shoes for height gain. What I'm saying is that Diesel could easily get a pair of custom dress shoes with a hidden heel which would give him a 2 to 2.5 inch boost, maybe even 3 at a push, closing the gap to his fellow actors so why doesn't he? He makes himself look slightly daft by putting his boots on while everyone around is dressed normal, he wouldn't do that for 2.5 inches when he can get custom dress shoes with that. Those boots give anywhere from 3 inches+. Don't forget Diesel always has ridiculous posture a lot of the time to gain every little mm he can.
gsbr said on 19/Dec/13

Like I said, Diesel was shorter than Ross in their first interview together in 2009, which certainly wasn't a red carpet premiere event. If he had his boots back then, it seems odd he wouldn't wear them while in the presence of an 187 cm host. Likewise, in that same year, Diesel looked about two to three inches shorter than Paul Walker at events where he wasn't dressed up.

Click Here

Also, Diesel's fellow actors aren't attending the premieres barefoot. They're also getting boosts from their own dress shoes. A standard dress shoe has about a half an inch heel, maybe a one inch heel at most. Diesel would be 6'0.25"-6'0.75" in them, but Walker would be 6'2.5"-6'3" and Dwayne Johnson would be 6'3.5"-6'4". The difference in height between them would remain unchanged, negating the extra boost Diesel got. He wouldn't appear 6'1" because he'd still be a few inches shorter than them. A two to three inch boot, on the other hand, would make Diesel look at least 6'1" when alongside 6'2" and 6'3" actors. In the second interview, I'd say Ross was about 6'1.75" in his dress shoes. Two and a half inch boots would make Diesel 6'2", enough to edge out Ross.
James said on 19/Dec/13

He really has, for example the first fast and furious film was 2001 and he was wearing them back then. I'm not saying he dons 4 inches of footwear all the time but you don't wear custom elevators to a black tie premier event, Diesel does this an awful lot whereas if he was actually 182cm he certainly wouldn't need to as a pair of decent dress shoes would make him a comfortable 6ft 1. There is no other viable reason why he would be wearing those boots to premiers, that in itself says they give more than 2 inches because he could get a pair of custom dress shoes to easily gain 2 inches in height. At the bare minimum they give 3 inches. There are photo's about of Diesel looking ridiculous because he has so much footwear on.
gsbr said on 18/Dec/13

Diesel clearly hasn't been wearing footwear that big for awhile. He was shorter than Ross in their first interview. His legs only look disproportional in the first image because he's walking. In the second image, where he's standing up straight, his upper leg looks the same length as his lower leg. There's still no concrete evidence of Diesel wearing lifts and like I said in another comment, it would be better to put them in ordinary sized boots, so his height boosters would be less obvious. And Carr is 5'11", he had at least two inches on Alan Carr in the Gocompare commercial they did.
James said on 17/Dec/13

Jimmy carr is 5ft 10. Anyway back to Vin. He won't have any problem walking in them because he's done it for years. Now those boots on there own wouldn't make Vin's lower legs look so far out of proportion, from the knee down to the floor is absolutely ridiculous but you are being fooled by custom elevator boots there my friend. Elevator shoes while having a decent heel will nearly always have further base inside, not just under the heel, but the entire boot. Search 'Vin Diesel Height' on youtube and there is a good short video with an example of what I mean, first video.

Anway as I said before his lower legs look ridiculous, that isn't 2 inches of footwear, if it was he would still look proportionate.
miko said on 17/Dec/13
His height has amazing variation, like Stallone.

He can look anywhere from a flat 5'10 to a legit 6'2.
Bosnia said on 16/Dec/13
Someone here said that Vin claimes 5 ft 11 3/4 now. Does anyone know something about that?
AJ said on 16/Dec/13
The 5'10" claims are ridiculous, he's clearly atleast 5'11". I don't think he's quite 182cm, I think 181cm (5'11.25") would be a little more accurate.
Jem said on 15/Dec/13
Vin is 5'10", maybe 5'10.5" at most. There is all kinds of evidence pointing towards the fact that he's wearing 2-3 inch lifts. He's for sure nowhere near 6'0".
Emily said on 15/Dec/13
Lol, the pics gsbr linked, are pretty ridiculous. He's packing at least 2 inches with that footwear. This should really be a warning to guys who want to pull the same trick, trust me, it's very visible when you wear a height boost like this.
gsbr said on 14/Dec/13

Prove he has hidden lifts in his boots. It seems a little odd he would wear lifts in big heeled boots when lifts are supposed to hide your footwear advantage. Wouldn't it be a better idea for Diesel to put them in ordinary looking shoes so less people realize his shoes are making him significantly taller than he really is?

@john 182

Yeah, Ross is taller in the earlier interview. In the 2013 interview, Diesel is taller. When they hug, Ross' head fails to cover up Diesel's head. And Dwayne Johnson is 6'3", of course Diesel would feel shorter than him.
john 182 said on 14/Dec/13
He was shorter than Ross. He even commented on his stature saying he was far shorter than Dwayne Johnson. 2-3 inch diff my ass Vin. 5'10 guy.
Soupeman said on 13/Dec/13
gsbr dear. The 4 inches is not in the heels but inside the boot.
gsbr said on 13/Dec/13

Ross is 187 cm, he has nearly three inches on the 180 cm Jimmy Carr. The only part he appears taller than Diesel in the 2013 interview is at 3:55 and that's because he's raising his head. Furthermore, while Ross' eyes are above Diesel's, the tops of their heads appear to be at the same level. Lastly, I've seen nothing about a correlation between lifts and the base of a boot. No matter what, bigger lifts means your feet are going higher off the ground.

These pictures give a better view of the boots Diesel wore in the Ross interview. The heel is undeniably prominent, but it's not four inches.
Bosnia said on 12/Dec/13
Len says on 19/Nov/13 It's odd... Vin's now claiming 5'11 3/4" elsewhere.

Can you give us a link where he claimed that, please?
Soupeman said on 12/Dec/13
Gsbr. Good observation on the earlier interview with ross. only ross is max 185 and isnt. Forcing posture like vin. And if you look hard enough when they Greet in the newest clip vin is noticeably shorter when they are evenly close to the camera. You can walk
With ease with big lifts as long as the base of the boot is wide. Simple science 8)
gsbr said on 12/Dec/13

While there aren't any good angles between the two, Diesel does look taller than Ross in his boots. I'd say they make him at least 6'1.75". And he doesn't have any problems walking in them, so the heel can't be that big, probably two or two and a half inches, enough to edge out Ross if he's 5'11.75".

On another note, it looks like Diesel has taken up wearing bigger footwear in recent years because he was shorter than Ross in an earlier interview.

Not with 4 inch's worth of footwear.
JohnSmith said on 9/Dec/13
nowhere near 6 foot
cole said on 8/Dec/13
I just can't see 182 cm for Vin. Maybe he's arund 180 cm, but nothing over.
gsbr said on 8/Dec/13
If Vin Diesel was under this height, then he wouldn't have appeared taller than the 187 cm Jonathan Ross. Obviously, he's not taller than Ross barefoot, his huge footwear helped give him an edge. But he also would have needed to be already close to Ross' height in order to become taller than him.
KJK said on 8/Dec/13
Vin Diesel is either 5'10 or 5'10.5. There is just no way he is almost 6 ft tall without shoes.
MD said on 6/Dec/13
No, he is not short. He's shorter than currently listed, but he's not a short man.
Soupeman said on 4/Dec/13
Hahahaha no such thing as false short. He is short short
Matt_Thor78 said on 3/Dec/13
Vin is a "false short" because of his often tall partners in action movies, his very large shoulders and imponent body. But the height you listed could be the right one, 182 cm, max 183!
Arch Stanton said on 2/Dec/13
Rob can you put up the photo on Paul walker's page here. It captures in him what look like lifts and standing on the lifts in the shoes! He assumes Sly posture! I doubt he's really 6 ft barefoot.
Brad said on 27/Nov/13
Correct Kyuss. Zito is barely over Stallone in similar height enhancing footwear. Years in the Fed pens made him more angry. He got real street cred. Vin has never seen 5' 10" and 1/4.
Kyuss said on 24/Nov/13
For a tough guy he sure is scared of the words "real height"..5-10 and he knows it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Nov/13
Started out at 6ft0.5in/184cm on here

Soupeman said on 19/Nov/13
Len - where does he claim that? because nobody! could find where he claimed the 185cm the fluffers refer too.
Yeah you are right he looks 178cm range in movies but thats with the generous help of movie magic and big boots(most likely with lifts)

some buff guys appear taller doe to bodyproportions with longish arms and a buffed upper body to match the skinny legs. the same case with stallone..where for example you have jay cutler one big ass mr olympia massive allover- claims 175cm
but looks 169cm next to others and could very well be that height too because of his massive build he won't appear taller on screen rather shorter - whereas VD is buff but not that buff.
James said on 19/Nov/13

He probaby saw the listing on this site and figured, hell if I can fool these guys then why not!
Len said on 19/Nov/13
It's odd... Vin's now claiming 5'11 3/4" elsewhere.

My guess? On film he looks 5'10". Buff as heck, but 5'10".
Soupeman said on 18/Nov/13
Yeah brad but remember He almost didnt and Norris is max! 173cm barefeet most likely closer to 170cm.. Hehe yeah Chuck. Zito is a legend among NYC bouncers one scary mofo. Not a tall guy either. Claims around 180cm but looked glenns height. Wears high heeled boots(maybe its a NYC bouncer thing)
