Here's an article about Jason Statham training with a guy who used to work with Diesel..here's a photo of the guy with Statham,and if you scroll down a bit,with Disel aswell....Click Here of the rare photos where Diesel is barefoot(i guess),and based on this hee looks taller than Statham...
Arch Stanton says on 16/Sep/14
I can buy 5 ft 11 but I think the .75 is a bit generous. I mean have you seen the size of his boots at times?
Brad says on 16/Sep/14
5' 10", he's fooled everybody in big boots with wedge.
Mia says on 11/Sep/14
@TheNexter Walker has never claimed 6'3", he's claimed 6'1" actually but he's a legit 6'2". Idris Elba is 6'3" and he's barely an inch over Walker.
Sam says on 8/Sep/14
Hmm, I wonder if Diesel is wearing boosted footwear??? ;=)

Jesus what a circus. tyrese gibson 179? hah'
clay why are you calling people clowns in advanced just for the fact that you are wrong?...
pussy!

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

He is clearly very height conscious, possibly even more so than the likes of Stallone.

Nice cobra , tyrese is aleast 179cm plus 2cm shoes 181cm diesel is aleast 185cm with the 3cm air Max on 5'11.75 listing mÔkes sens to me he is at worst 5'11.25-11.5 Like me

there's going to be a lot of clowns claiming Tyrese is 5'8-5'9 max. Wait for it...

good photo for a comparison Tyrese Gibson is legit 5' 11'' and vin diesel in big boots is 1 inch taller that tyrese, vin is about 5' 11''. Click Here

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 says 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 says 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 says on 5/Aug/14
Ye, in that vid with Jimmy Fallon I'd say no more than a flat 5'11.
vincent says on 5/Aug/14
the vid with fallon makes vin look 6"1
Supermann says on 4/Aug/14
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 says on 4/Aug/14
agree 5'11.
RisingForce says 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 my good man, its time! did you see vin diesel on tonight show with jimmy fallon . vin was aprox 8 cm shorter he did not have his famous boots on. you can't have fallon and diesel at the same height. its like i always said. vin is sub 175cm. i personally believe fallon is between 179-180cm. bad news for groot
DV says on 28/Jul/14
@Rob I know Vin likes to wear lifts but that is a little ridiculous ;)
[Editor Rob: it will be interesting in 300 years time when height might be at a stage which when growing up you can tailor it. Imagine being able to have injections that could make you the height of your choice!

Tom Cruise the 8th will stand 6ft 10!]

Red183 says on 21/Jul/14
180cm at best, 178-179cm is what he would measure at the end of the day
Eliminator says on 16/Jul/14
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 says on 10/Jul/14
181cm max
RisingForce says 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 says 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 says 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.

@Red183 If Pellegrino is 6-1" diesel is short.............very short.


Next to Rob Pellegrino looks barely 6┤1"
RisingForce says 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.

Guy says on 8/Jun/14
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 says 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 says on 6/Jun/14

Vinicius looks his listed 5┤9", Diesel looks exactly 4cm taller so 5┤10.5" is spot on and it fits with the height he appears in his lifts.
Red183 says on 3/Jun/14
Rob please take a look, Marcus Vinicius next to statham and most likely both barefoot with Vin Diesel, I still highly doubt near 6ft what do you think

There's no way he's wearing 4 or 5 inch lifts IMO.


Walker looks an inch taller there
Walker 6┤1.5"+1"shoe = 6┤2.5"

Diesel 6┤1.5"- 1.75"heel -1.25" inside lift = 5┤10.5"
Imo it┤s clear that he has something inside there, customs a la Sly
ian c. says 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.

Riddle me this. Mark Wahlberg is listed at 173cm(most believe he is under)
If you look at the height difference between mark and the rock in pain & gain.. Go an look up the 27 sec video with vin and the rock(type vin diesel y the rock) you will be shocked 2 see.
Wahlberg and Diesel are almost the same height
Concerned says 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.
Magnusver says on 22/Apr/14
At nearly 6 feet tall, why is he known for having an outrageous height complex?
wingwalker says 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:

Brad says on 3/Apr/14
Big tread and lifts within....he fools everybody.
french guy says on 21/Mar/14
179 cm sounds more accurate to me, i know it's hardly believable, but this guy has fooled a lot here with his heels.180 cm is really the max i would give.
Emmett says on 21/Mar/14
Rob, what lead to you list him as 5'11.75? That's very specific number.
[Editor Rob: it isn't a measurement, but it is still my range for him, somewhere near to 6ft, but not quite ]
Balrog says on 20/Mar/14
Seahawkfan you nailed IMO. Those would be my estimates as well, although I'd put Diesel at a flat 5'11"
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 20/Mar/14
Sorry, but I don't think that Paul Walker was at all a full 6'2". He was nearly identical with 6'1" listed Freddie Prinze Jr. He's roughly 186-187 CM as The Rock/Dwayne Johnson whose like 6'2.5-6'2.75" nowadays had a good 1-1.25" inches on Paul Walker. Vin Diesel was real close with Paul Walker (with 1.75-2 inches of a footwear advantage) and consistently looked 2.75"-3" inches shorter than The Rock/Dwayne Johnson.

My estimates:

The Rock/Dwayne Johnson: 6'2.5"/189 CM (not a full 6'3" in my opinion)
Paul Walker: 186/6'1.25
Vin Diesel: 181 CM/5'11.25"
RisingForce says 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.
Soupman says on 13/Mar/14
French guy... Only... paul was shorter

paul walker (187 cm) had 2 cm on him while vin diesel
-is closer to the the camera (+ 1 cm)
-has a very good posture (+1 cm)
-wear thick boots (+6 cm)

187 cm paul wark's height-8 cm=179 cm
seems believable, a strong 5'10"
Every photos show he can't be more than 180 cm.
Soupeman says 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 says 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]
Brad says on 10/Mar/14
Herman Munster would be looking for his boots in Japan, those things make Stallone's boots look normal. Vin is sick sad over his 5' 10" height.

maximus says on 21/Feb/14
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"..no need for super thick shoes.
kyuss says on 21/Feb/14
Sorry rob but this height is 1.75" out of range here. Hes a 5-10" guy max. Paloma hi wife is listed at 5-10". Here shes in total *flat* shoes,hes in a good size sole shoe and still looks same as her or even shorter.. No way 5-11.75" rob. Click Here

Vin was on a box with The Rock plus wore his custom wedged up boots. How The Rock kept a straight face in scenes with Vin on a height enhancing platform is the real question. On The Fast & Furious 6 DVD cover he's taller than Walker.

Walker 186cm and Disel 180cm and even could buy a 179cm listing for him, and is because he is always in big boots, look a those pic, Walker and Tyrese in normal dress shoes and he in some boots with probably lifts on. And still Walker has 2in over him.
Mr. R says on 23/Jan/14
The second pic proves my point that at 5-11.5 I was too tall to be Tyrese's double in Waist Deep. He is way shorter than Vin Diesel.

It's interesting how Vin Diesel sometimes can look almost as tall as Paul Walker, and sometimes it looks like this.Even though his footwear remains the same. Click Here
Bundy says on 16/Jan/14
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.
dmeyer says on 7/Jan/14
If. Diesel Is 5'11.5-11.75 walker Is defo 6'1.5-2in
RobV says 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.
MD says on 5/Jan/14
Where did you come up with this new Three Inch Rule? lol Most people exaggerate their height, but we've kind of anecdotally come to the conclusion that most people exaggerate by two inches at the most.
Dago Red says on 4/Jan/14
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 says on 4/Jan/14
@James

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 says on 4/Jan/14
Claiming your 6'1 means 5'10... claiming 6'2 means 5'11.... he has a 5'9" build though.

Custom Elevator Boots, which can still be padded with inserts and lifts.

gsbr says 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 says 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.

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 says on 23/Dec/13
@James

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.

Click Here

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 says on 23/Dec/13
@TheExorcist

If vin put on some normal footwear he'd be the same height as Tyrese in that pic.
The Exorcist says 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 says 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 says on 20/Dec/13
@gsbr

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 says on 19/Dec/13
@James

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 says on 19/Dec/13
@gsbr

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 says on 18/Dec/13
@James

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 says on 17/Dec/13
@gsbr

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 says 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 says on 16/Dec/13
Someone here said that Vin claimes 5 ft 11 3/4 now. Does anyone know something about that?
AJ says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 14/Dec/13
@Soupeman

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 says 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 says on 13/Dec/13
gsbr dear. The 4 inches is not in the heels but inside the boot.
gsbr says on 13/Dec/13
@Soupeman

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.

Can you give us a link where he claimed that, please?
Soupeman says 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 says on 12/Dec/13
Click Here

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.

I just can't see 182 cm for Vin. Maybe he's arund 180 cm, but nothing over.
gsbr says 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 says 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.

No, he is not short. He's shorter than currently listed, but he's not a short man.

Hahahaha no such thing as false short. He is short short
Matt_Thor78 says 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 says 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 says 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 says on 24/Nov/13
For a tough guy he sure is scared of the words "real height"..5-10 and he knows it.

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 says on 19/Nov/13

He probaby saw the listing on this site and figured, hell if I can fool these guys then why not!

My guess? On film he looks 5'10". Buff as heck, but 5'10".
Soupeman says 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)
Brad says on 17/Nov/13
At 5' 10" he'd own Norris. Norris wouldn't wear custom wedgers like Vin.All ex NYC bouncers are all scarey...Chuck Zito the scariest.
Soupeman says on 14/Nov/13
@brad- Thats because brad pitt IS taller than VD thats the reason why He wont need those crazy VD boots. brad only need a little push its easy looking 183 cm with the right shoes and a small lift inside them if you are a true 178cm. If not you gotta go the big oversized boots.(with plenty room for lifts) way like VD. But who cares. I personally Think He is between 169cm -176cm like Norris and stallone.( hard to tell because of the silly boots that tops even the hard lifters. Wich makes me wonder if He is shorter than norris! Like the famed video out there( Norris at 73 prob with cowboy boots) but VD almost positively got his loved boots on that sure must give more height .
Than the much older texas ranger who is just a hair under VD in height.
still the alpha badass of Hollywood right know. Regardless of his height one intimdating badass.
Silent d says on 13/Nov/13

Lorne says on 13/Nov/13
Yeah, and the one time I've seen him without his monster boots, he was in Nike Shox! Very insecure, Mr. Diesel, but 5'9 is ludacris, like Balrog said, his boots plus a 1in lift, he could be 180, quite possible. But since they're isn't proof he's wearing lifts, I'd give him 181. If I we're Rob I'd knock a quarter inch, or maybe even half, but But Rob doesn't want to screw with a quarter inch, and without proof of lifts. (But he should be lowered; he no way looks a 6 footer...)
Brad says on 13/Nov/13
He's like Brad Pitt, a 5 foot 10 incher wanting to be 6 feet.... at least Pitt isn't in Vin boots or on boxes.
Hypado says on 12/Nov/13
182 cm
Soupeman says on 12/Nov/13
I like your way of thinking a little morever the usual crazed ones here on the site. But even 178cm is way 2 much for VD barefeet. I Think in his most ridiculous boots, camera angle and super forced posture He can look max! 183cm i Think the rock could reach 190cm in boots on a good Day and PW maybe scrapes between 185-188cm in his vans. PW was taller than VD in fast 5 closing scene even when he was barefeet and VD had those giga boots on. Think about it. It all adds up. The 185-188cm in boots for VD is a joke!
Balrog says on 12/Nov/13
It's possible that those huge boots are near 2in, plus half inch lifts he could get a boost of 6cm so if he can pull off 6'1'' then he could be really just 5'11'' or a bit under it. I still think 5'11'' flat is a good shout for him, those boots he wears are one of the biggest in hollywood and he's always wearing them.
Brad says on 12/Nov/13
This 5' 11.75" figure is the most ridiculous height figure since when I saw G listed at 5' 8" (a young G, straight up 5' 6"). He's on a height enhancing box with customs with The Rock. He'd blow by The Rock if 1/4" less than 6 feet. He's 5' 10". Mr. Elevator Boots.
Soupeman says on 11/Nov/13
Lorne you should be banned for that BS you just wrote. you clearly know jack! About that pile you just wrote. Utter BS. It is very possible and very likely to add 5.5 inches of actual height. Adding huge amount of height is VERY normal for actors and has been the case/almost a tradition for male a-listers from the early ages of filmmaking. The clearest case being Kirk Douglas looking max 5'6" compaired to other people in reality. But he claimis 5'11" in his book. Search on Kirk Douglas and John Wayne in harms way look
At the picture with his obvious enourmes LIFTS . Then go back and Search on Kirk Douglas and stallone. Then tell me again what you just wrote! It is possible and very common for the Hollywood hero type to add several inches to their real height. Don't be ignorant! His lifts and attempts of looking that mark looks very similar to vin diesels and sylvester stallone those are the most extreme ones right now . Vin is practically falling over with the lifts. Do you research click on the add. Heck by a pair before your ignorant claim that is not possible. What you just wrote dear Lorne is the biggest joke ever.
Lorne says on 11/Nov/13
Though he could certainly be close to 6ft, may very well measure that mark after a full nights sleep. I acknowledge under 5'11 a possibly, but so is 5ft11.5. Rob, I recently watched your YouTube videos and 3 times you measured 5ft83/8ths I believe, you really are a VERY strong 5ft8, you shortchange yourself a bit by saying 5ft8 flat .:)
[Editor Rob: remember 3/8th really is .25 because of error, but a strong 5ft 8 is what I'd call myself]
Lorne says on 11/Nov/13
I didn't say he was close to 6ft, but 5'9 is utter nonsense. He's 180-181; to people pointing at 5.5 in shoes supposedly advertised on the site, I haven't seen them, but they wouldn't give anywhere near 5.5in; I have seen a 5in elevator, that gave barely 3.5in with pivoting. Anyone that thinks he's getting 5inches of actual height should be forever banned from this site; they clearly are trolling or know NOTHING about height. To get 5in of height, the heel would have to measure at least 7 inches, your foot wouldn't even angle that far, you would need a huge platform. Seriously, get a life people. He measures 186-187 in his massive boots, if they really are 5in elevators, he might get 3.5in of height, he'd be 179cm, you can argue that as an extreme absolute low, that's all, 180-181, 179 range as worst case scenario, but even 5'11.5 not impossible, no on can prove he wears lifts, and he certainly looks a big 6ft guy. And I don't like Diesel AT ALL, he is a joke, who wishes he was tall, but that doesn't mean he's 5'9. He's strong average, taller than at least 75% of the population(Male/female), GET OVER IT.
Bosnia says on 10/Nov/13

High heeled boots wich clearly contains lifts that are angling him forwards(minimum 10cm) stil taller than diesel 99.9 percent of the pictures out there. cant believe some of you guys! I am amazed. Vin diesel without footwear. Is WAY! Under 5'10" . his own picture on his facebook page Kurt russel looks taller.
James says on 7/Nov/13
Flat 5ft 10 imo, 5.5" Elevator Boots, while possible is a little exteme, in my opinion he consistently wears 3 to 4 inch of lifts. I'm basing that on his height versus paul walker, sometimes he looks a tad smaller, sometimes a tad taller. Then at other times without the boots quite a large bit shorter.

Vin is a victim of his broad physique, which is a fair bit larger than aberage 5ft 10 guys. He has the upper body width of a well built 6ft 2 guy, the boots bring him closer to this mark and support his image better however over the years Vin has definetly got more paranoid about his height as he gets called out on it due to his huge boots.

For the guys arguing about Vin weighing 220lbs at certain heights, it's easily doable at 5ft 10, just because he was ripped up it doesn't mean be HAS to be 5ft 11/6ft. He's probably more like 230/35lbs now anyway as he has a little more bodyfat than he used to. Weight can be deceiving, I'm 6ft and have a very broad frame, my friend of a similar height but not as broad weighs 12kg less, he doesn't understand how, and if people guess my weight they are always way under, my theory is bone mass accounting for alot of it, this could easily be the case with Vin too.

RisingForce how can anybody weigh in your statements when you say 5.5 lifts isnt possible when this site is covered with ads of 5.5 " boots. I strongly believe He wears boots with the maximum amount of lifts. I know the majority of people think the same. It is pretty obvious. He wears them with
Suits!

That 6'1" claim? The few of you keep holding on to- Haven't seen it anywhere. Evidence?
Soupeman says on 6/Nov/13

RisingForce says on 5/Nov/13
So Soupeman, you're suggesting Vin wears 5.5" elevators, which is in itself not remotely plausible, but also that he's 5'7.5"? You just said 5.5" from listed height, and Vin claims 6'1".

The man isn't under 5'11". Might not be over it either, but the under 5'10" stuff is ridiculous. He's a relatively tall guy who wears elevator boots to look like a legitimately big guy. He was regularly listed at 6'2" in the early 2000's, that just doesn't happen with guys under 5'10", much less around 5'8".
MD says on 5/Nov/13
5.5" elevator boots? You're joking, right?
Soupeman says on 3/Nov/13
Vin wears 5.5 inch elevator boots all the time substract 5.5 inches from the listed height and you have vins height! It aint that hard to tell. All you loonies guessing around the listed height better get them eyes checked!

I'm 5 foot 11 flat and was wearing converse sneakers; so 5 11 1/2. Saw him last year at a cash register (supermarket, he was right beside me)He was wearing regular nike shoes (maybe 1 inch 1/2 ) He was 2-3 inches shorter than me. So I think that guy is 5.8
John says on 1/Nov/13
I think 5 ft. 11.5 is spot on for Vin Diesel. Under 6 feet barefoot, but a little over 5 ft. 11 when completely standing as upright and rigid as possible.

I would love to have Vin Diesel, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Justin Timberlake in an official "height-off" contest. All these guys have the same complex: fraction under 6 feet, with various claims of 6 ft. 1 or similar.

That 5 ft. 11.X mark is a dangerous psychological threshold. Lots of weird behavior and bizarre claims happen in that territory. It's the Bermuda Triangle of heights.
Soupeman says on 30/Oct/13
Brother Brandon~ AMEN! Vin diesel cant be Anthing over 5'10" with those boots.crazy how some people can misjudge the obvious! he even beats sly when it comes to footwear.

The consensus on this page seems to be that Vin is listed at least an inch too tall. There are a few people bringing the nonsense to this page. People claiming Vin really is close to 6'0".

I think he isn't 1.82 those boots make him look 1.86 so without them i'd say he is about same height as tyrese or 1 cm taller which means a strong 5"11 if you take a good look at his built without the lifts he looks it but i think he wears lifts because his upper body is huge.

Vin is much closer to 5'10" then 6'0". He gets at least 2-2.5 inches from those massive boots he wears. If this listing was accurate Vin would be the close to the same height as Paul Walker. Vin looks about 2 inches shorter. There is a lot of evidence to back up the 5'10" claims.

Pro makers of shoes used by hollywood stars state that its easy to increase a mans height by 2 1/2 to 4 inches without looking silly,,vin looks the same as his wife {5-10"} in his nikes,see him in boots or dress shoes he becomes to stand higher next to her,dress and boots are the shoe makers dream to increase your height. Hes 5-10" flat. Huge complex on his height for sure.

Based on Vin Diesel's comparison with Paul Walker, he appears about 2 inches short. Paul walker has claimed 6'3" which is a ridiculous. He's convincingly shorter than the Rock. The Rock is most likely around 6'3". My guess is Paul Walker is probabally 6'1" at the most. 5'11" for Vin Diesel seems beleivable. But I wouldn't downgrade him to 5'10". Because of Vin Diesel's built, you would easily assume that he;s over 6 feet. 5'11" seems bang on. Nothing more, nothing less.

He looks 5'11" at most.

Frankenstein boots with lifts. No Cubans with Vin, he knew he'd be zoot-suited early in his career.

@ James Yep that photo really does sum it up, he looks like he is being tipped up and forwards. I am happy to volunteer to give him lessons in how to wear lifts and elevators without being detected. Above all it is the type of boot he wears and type of pants he wears with it - aargh. They just do not go. Lorne mentioned Brad Pitt and his Cubans and that is kinda the way for Diesel to go, really. He would actually suit the look. Even if he were NOT wearing lifts right now, it looks like he is in this clunky munsters.

I heard him in an radio interview saying the rock is huge and about 6 foot 5 and weighing 280lbs. He said he was 65lbs lighter. He looks big sometimes but surely not over 100kg. I think he said that so people believe his claims. 178cm and 90kg.

Yeah, 5'11.5" seems perfect, imo. Amazing that he was regularly listed at 6'2" early in his career. Seems like a pretty constant lift guy. Lifts are often overstated on this site(and for celebrities in general) but I think they apply in Vin's case. Though I seriously doubt his shoes give anywhere near 4 inches. Watch at about 3:55 Click Here With his Frankenstein boots, he ends up looking similar in height to 6'1.5" Jonathan Ross. And a few years earlier his shoes look normal with Jonathan Ross and he's 2" max shorter at about 1:28. Click Here

His shoes could give 1.9 in , 5'11.5 is closer to vin height

@RisingForce

Oh well there you go! 1931 it is ;)

Im not so sure about 5ft 11, I honestly think if you visualise vin without the boots his body just seems smaller than Tyrese, I think he'd be atleast an inch smaller without the boots in comparison to Tyrese. 178 max.

Massive faker. Wears 3" monsters 24/7. 5 feet 10 hurtin' to be 6 feet.

@RobV

I remember you off the general page, 6ft 2 wearing lifts to 6ft 5! Crazy! Anyhow like you say, Vin makes it far too obvious, the picture I posted below shows how ridiculous he can look at times. I think he's just grown so paranoid about his height now that he can't stop wearing them, even though he would still look just as bad ass sticking to his natural height, which I believe to be 5ft 10. Hell he could scrape just a 1 inch lift into some decent footwear to look 6ft and that would be more normal.
