By the way, I am 5’11”, not 5’10”. If you read Wikipedia and it talks about my money, I always go, “I don’t have that.” And I also see my height and I go, “They shortened me (laughs).” 5’11”, spread the word!

Taylor [Lautner] is not a basketball player but is somehow weaselly enough to beat most opponents. I don't know how tall Taylor is, but I'm 5'11", and I'm a little taller, so whatever the hell he is, he can grab the rim. He can swat people's shots. He's all over the place. He's a very quick man.

@r1995 I'm thinking he's got to be in the 5ft 8 area for sure! Screw 5ft 11, Adam Sandler should claim 6ft now! #6ftking

I’d say closer to 5’10 then 5’9

Since you don't see Grayson Boucher as over 5 ft 9, do you think you can make a page for him under 'Youtube Stars'..? He's got 8 million views...

I'd say Adam was 5'10 1/8 in his peak, now hes probably 5'9.75 or 5'9.5 ish now.

5'11? Lmao

I am probably a small fraction taller, since my normal low is 176.7-176.9 cm.

I've published a lot of dumb comments on this site, and I carry the burden of them everyday. However, I have to point out that I absolutely don't think he looks "tall" next to Lebron James in that picture, and I don't know why I even said that. The back of Sandler's head seems to reach Lebron James' bottom chin which is like a 25 cm difference taking into account his relatively big head, making Sandler 177 cm, which goes along with the listing

i know nobody will agree with me but to me adam sandler have always looked 5´10( with bad posture) and thats why i think he can measure litlle over that with good posutre. I think he is like a g uy like arnold. Arnold could look 184-185 alot when he was younger but ptobably measured 186 or just over. Same with Jim carrey with bad posture he did look 6´1 but when measured i dont think he could have been under 6´1 1/2 and could even have been 6´1 3/4. Posture do alot. I mean look at Stallone. He can pull of looking 1 icnh taller tthan he is ( in normal shjoes) just beacuse he have perfect posture. I will give Adam 5´10 1/4. I rally think he would measure taller than we think.
dreus23 said on 26/Jul/22
5'9.5, 176.5-177 cm. Does look impressively tall though next to Brooklyn Decker wearing noticeably large heels in the picture above, and also looks way taller than that next to Lebron James (admittedly with camera advantage but still). He can look taller than 5'9.5 on camera but generally I think he'd measure around that range. Truly the most average height guy I've seen
Amber Jones said on 2/Jul/22
5'9 and a half in shoes 5'9 w/o shoes on a good day
Jawilder said on 1/Jul/22
Definitely not 5’10. I’m gonna say he’s 5’9.5.
Hman said on 30/Jun/22
Judging from the set pics and behind the scenes videos from Hustle, he sure looks like he's legit 5'11", unless everyone else in the movie is lying about their height.

At least 5'10". Just saw some pictures of him and a friend in KC after playing some basketball. My friend is definitely 6'1" barefoot and I struggled to see more than 2 to 2.5 inches, tops."

Well, to start with there's more than 2 to 2.5" between 5'10" and 6'1" - and your friend is likely like almost every man on the planet exaggerating by 0.5 to 1", so he COULD be 5'10" *if your friend is not actually 6'1" which is more likely than not given that around 90% of western men are below 6'1".......I will say that Jim Carrey clearly towers over him and Jim is about 6'1.5", maybe 6'1" at night. So I'd have Sandler at 5'9.5" to 5'10" at very most.

I'm just a hair under 6'2" most times except maybe if I do stretches I can hit 6'2" barefoot, and a 5'10" guy is JUST at the height I can look over the top of his head when standing behind him in line. my 5'11" brother looks QUITE noticeably smaller than me in every photo we have together so 2 to 3" can really look significant when you consider it's the difference between eyebrow level and headtop level depending on head size. 5'10" next to 6'1" is noticably shorter - so I just doubt your buddy's height.

5'9.5" for me - a thoroughly average-range guy. I have a cousin who has met him and has been photographed with him - she's right about up to my shoulder but next to him she was up to his mid-nose level, so Sandler would stand SIGNIFICANTLY shorter than 6'1". Going from shoulder level to mid-nose level for most men is about a 5 inch height difference, so if my cousin is at my shoulder level but midway up the bridge of his nose, I'd say that's fair to say it's a 5 inch height difference or close to it, and if I'm just under 6'2", then 5'9.5" would be a pretty solid figure for Sandler.

Also at the premier of Pixels, you see him next to Josh Gad who is 5'6" and about up to Sandler's forehead level - so if anything I'd say 5'9.5" is being generous to Sandler. He's definitely not over 5'10", for sure.

o cant ever se him shorter than the listed height. I believe he could be a legit 5´10 guy. IN happy gilmore for example beside the 189 guy and 186 carl weathers he could pull of 5´10-5´11 but he had big boots on. i give him legit 178.
Jesica said on 28/Feb/22
I think he's at least 5'9.5 but no more than 5'10. The listing here is probably spot on. Adam doesn't have good posture, and his baggy clothing that he usually wears makes him look shorter than he is.
Lawrence099 said on 14/Feb/22
Rock solid 177 who has horrible posture and can often look shorter because of it.Listing is spot on IMO.

Well he did look to edge a Bridgette WIlson in Billy Madison. And she's listen as 5ft 8 1/2. And was also edged by bradley whitford. I can give this man 5ft 10. His 5'11 claim is definitely either with shoes or his rounded height out of bed. Rob how far would you say he would go with Tony shalhoub?

Twenty years ago today, Adam was celebrating his 35th Birthday. Then suddenly, he'll have heard about the terrible terrorist attacks which were to be known as 9/11. Anyone old enough to remember will know exactly what he/she was doing that day and have turned on the news to see that it couldn't possibly have been worse.

We were the lucky ones. Many of us weren't so lucky, either being killed or injured in it, seeing the horror, or worrying about family and friends.

I feel that it might be for the reason that, for Adam, it happened on his birthday, that he accepted the role of the tragic man who had lost his entire family in the attacks. The film is called 'Reign Over Me' and follows the story of a man suffering from PTSD as a result of the evil attacks. It's a difficult watch, and shows that Adam is capable of turning his acting talents to more than just the comedy we know and love him for.

Let's spare a thought for all those who suffered as a result of the 9/11 attacks. 😢🙏

176.5, probably rounding up his morning height
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Aug/21
He never looks short onscreen...always solid average, sometimes even a little above

The original 5ft10 made sense. In shoes probably 5ft11
Average Heighted Male said on 21/Jun/21
Looked about 5'11" next to Eric Bana's big 6'2" frame in Funny People,and no more than the same height as Seth Rogen throughout. So if Sandler is 5'10½/5'11" than that's acceptable to list him at. Always looks tall-ish in films, but not some gigantic over 6footer.
Rahul roy said on 4/Jun/21
@ rob paul, i bet you will be surprised to know the actual height of dale steyn which is 183cm or textbook 6 and @fida khan are fooled by camera angles. You can add dale steyn. And when you do add him at 5'10.25" or even 5'10.5" , after few days you would upgrade him to 6'. That would be 1.5" to 1.75" off. That will be embarrasing. I am waiting
Rahul roy said on 4/Jun/21
@ fida khan, his listed height is 179 cm. Which is just about 5'10.5". But fida just watch the below pics there. He looks 2.25" taller thsn sandler which means clinical 6 foot or 183 cm.
Fida Khan said on 21/May/21

My guess would be Dale Steyn is 5'10 1/4. Rob Paul please make a page on Dale Steyn and Let us know how tall you think he is?

MaskDeMasque said on 2/Mar/21
His posture is all over the place in his films. He can look close to 5'10 though when he does stand up straight. 5'9.5 absolute minimum for Sandler and 5'9.75 is more likely. I think he'd edge out Matt Damon and Colin Farrell.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 20/Feb/21
I think he’s a full 5’10” whenever he stands up straight, given how he appeared the same height as Seth Rogen and Chris Rock. Given the length of his torso, I wouldn’t be surprised if he lost a full inch of height throughout the day. 5’11” might be Adam’s out of bed height.
Magnus 6'4" said on 8/Feb/21
In Punch Drunk Love he looks a half inch taller than Philip Seymour Hoffman
Aj06 said on 6/Jan/21
5'9.7 for Adam funny guy in my view I think 5'10 is a tad high for him and he's not 5'11.
Zach Catselbow said on 30/Dec/20
I’ve met Sandler in Hawaii before. Based on what I saw, I’d say he’s probably a weak 5’10”. In the morning he looks about 5’10”, 5’11”. At night I’d say he looks a bit under 5’10”.
Pat m said on 5/Dec/20
Adam has really bad posture, I think if he stood his tallest in a military style pose hed just be shy of 5ft10 today, maybe a little over when he was younger
Stu 5"11 said on 5/Dec/20
No way could he be 5'11, 5'9 I'd say

he is always slouching and still never looks under 177. often look in the 177-178 range. i think if he stood at his tallest he wouldnt be under 178 cm

Ummmmmm, yeah I guess you're right funny guy, you're not 5'10....... you're 5'9.75 instead. Lol 5'11 is probably his height in the morning in decent footwear, but he can't be over 179 in the morning barefoot, needless to say a solid 180.

The original 5ft10 was fair I thought. One of those who can appear both a little over and a little under it at times

I'd give him 5'10 tbh. Also If he's 5'9 no way tom hanks is 6'0, more like 5'11 flat if thats the case. Id give sandler 5'10 and hanks 5'11.5 now, think he has shrunk a little. Adam has a very lose posture. Think he'd be 178cm mid point in the day IMO
Jkiller said on 11/Mar/20
5'9 and a half at best, around 176.5cm.

He's above average alright but he ain't 5'11"!

I think he’d edge out Damon though, if I had to guess.
Editor Rob
You could see Sandler measuring 5ft 11 in a shoe, but barefoot I doubt it.
6james94 said on 8/Feb/20
Yeah he looks five nine in that picture. That's how my six three friend and I look next too each other, and I'm actually five nine possibly five eight and three quarters so I'm not even a full a five nine. Though my friend might just be a little over six two or six two and a half, and he claims six five though I'm at his eyes and I know I'm not five eleven or six feet or let alone five ten. I'm between five eight and three quarters and five nine.
Jtm said on 16/Jan/20
I agree viper. not buying over 5'9 at all and that yet again proves pitt is 5'9.5 max.

He's noticebly shorter than Bradley whitford in Billy Madison even with the footwear advantage and whitford is supposedly shorter than Brad Pitt.

Rob if it came to a stare down between sandler, gal gadot, and harry styles who do you think would be the tallest?

Sandler I think is a guy who might edge both out, I think Gadot is the shortest of those 3

Paul NS (6ft 0.5) said on 15/Aug/19
This is a delayed response, but I definitely think Sandler was testing out height-enhancing footwear when he was promoting The Meyerowitz Stories. In most of Sandler's photos with Noah Baumbach, a pretty typical 5'9"-5'10" range guy, there's barely anything between them Click Here Click Here. Then, inexplicably at some events, Sandler showed up sporting some bulky footwear, and suddenly Baumbach isn't looking nearly as tall as he used to Click Here Click Here. Especially when you look at how bizarre Sandler was standing at those events, it becomes quite clear what was going on. Definitely baffling to see as Sandler never once struck me as a guy who cared about his height, feel like he's been wearing regular sneakers everywhere as long as I can remember. But I guess you always have late bloomers to the height insecurity game.
meezemaker said on 30/Jun/19
Looks same height or half inch taller than Danny Boon, the french actor whose height is 174-175.

So 176 for adam sounds right, not over
Shane Gray said on 4/Jun/19
At least 5'10". Just saw some pictures of him and a friend in KC after playing some basketball. My friend is definitely 6'1" barefoot and I struggled to see more than 2 to 2.5 inches, tops.

Yes, having just seen Adam strolling onto Ellen's stage, he looked a whole lot taller than I expected! He's a very convincing 5ft9.75. Both had the same type of footwear.

Lorne??? said on 1/May/19
His height changes with the wind

Awhile back you had him at 5'9.25, the b 5'9.5, I think 5ft9 flat once (with Luke Wilson) he is a tricky one isn't he Ron?

Hope you are doing well :)

He looked a bit taller than Seth Rogen, who looks to be about 5’11”, even while considering the footwear advantage. And he also towers over Ben Stiller:

He also looks to be at least the same height as Chris Rock. 5’10” seems like a better listing, as the guy has a fairly long face, smaller legs and a fairly large upper body, all while being a slouched that makes him look deceptively smaller than he is. He still appears to be above average in stature to me.

Aside from the bulky boots and angle, his posture looks completely different: Click Here
The angle looks like a possible lift, but thick boots either way: Click Here

@ Gracian - Hello! I simply had to write in and tell you how much I agree with your idea of popping Rowan Atkinson - who has indeed done stand-up comedy in his early career, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie on the comedians' page! Although primarily regarded as actors, they started out as wonderful comedians, Messrs Fry and Laurie appearing together in their own comedy show and Rowan Atkinson acting in many a funny sitcom, including 'Blackadder', as did Fry and Laurie,
'Mr Bean' and 'The Thin Blue Line'. He first graced our screens in the wildly popular 'Not The Nine O'Clock News', when people would interrupt their pub drinking sessions and pour back to someone's house to watch it!

Yes, comedy is these three guys' original forte and I couldn't agree with you more that they qualify as comedians....

Gracian said on 17/Mar/18
I think that the category of comedians requires a few more people. I'm asking you to add Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Jim Carrey, Hugh Laurie, Rowan Atkinson, Johnny Deep, Owen Wilson, Gene Wilder, Leslie Nielsen, Steve Carell, Stephen Fry and Bill Murray. I apologize for the fact that I often ask you to supplement different categories, I would just like to help you create and update your website.
Editor Rob
Johnny Depp a comedian! 😱

It's a slow and ongoing process updating pages, but if anybody wants to help, the best thing to do is.

If you are on a page like Jim Carrey and he wasn't in the comedian tag yet, just leave a

Comedians comment

It is quicker for me to click 'edit jim' and add the category from my comment moderation page.

I know a few people already leave the odd comment in that manner and I can quickly add them in that moment to the category.

A hair under 5'10 seems about right for Adam, although he looks like a flat 5'9 a lot of the time in his films because his posture is kind of bad.
Johno said on 1/Sep/16
5'9.75, i can't personaly give it to him because i doubt he could measure it.
height man said on 23/Aug/16
why the upgrade? 5'9 is what he is
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Aug/16
5ft9½-10 is better than 5ft9 flat…
Shredder said on 3/Aug/16
It doesn't matter what some site or Magazine listed him years ago. It doesn't make him 5'9.
Danimal (176-178cm) said on 2/Aug/16
You have him an inch too high Rob. I used to see 5'9" listings for him back in his SNL days. He's not over that.
berta said on 29/Jun/16
he was listed as 5 foot 10 in his new Movie the do over. If he was listed as that then that is the higest possible he can be. So i guess this is good listing . In my Eyes he can look both 177 and 178.
truth said on 24/Jun/16
He looks mostly 5'9 to 5'10 range to me. 5'9.5 mostly likely.
Lmeister said on 20/Jun/16
I think his loose posture makes him look shorter than he really is. 5ft11 is clearly a shoes on height. He touches 5ft10 straight out of bed.
James c said on 19/Jun/16
This is way more believable but at times he looks like he's only just 5'9"
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 31/May/16
I just noticed that his legs are short and that he has a longer face. It would explain why some get a shorter impression from him.
Darthrob said on 28/May/16
In his new movie the do over on Netflix his height is listed on the database as 6-0. 187 pounds. 1 hour 16 mins into the movie. Obviously adding a couple of inches for the character or whatever but still interesting
Tunman said on 20/May/16
Yeah,always thought he was a little taller than Samberg who in turn could be rather in the 5'9-9.5" range more than 5'9.5-10.
Dmeyer said on 15/May/16
Also 9,75 will explain whi hé looks 5ft 10 so oftnely
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 13/May/16
I agree with this upgrade. He's two inches taller than Tom Cruise.
Dmeyer said on 10/May/16
Rob i think you should upgreat him 5ft 9,75 , i personaly think hé could stretch to 177,5-177,8cm 5ft 9,9-5'10 since hé can look 5 ft 9-9,5 slouching And many times looks 5ft 10 when in good posture can even pull off 178-9cm 5ft 10-10,5 at times
Editor Rob
9.75 is believable because at times he doesn't look a guy who is forcing or standing tall...measure him and he may well be that mark.

Rob, do you think the odds are greater he is nearer 5'10 or 5'9 in the evening?

Rob, here is Sandler next to Milo Ventimiglia, with Milo looking nearly an inch taller then him.

Click Here

Here is Milo's footwear that day and here is Adam's.

Click Here

Click Here

As you can see, Milo has on some regular footwear and Adam some Addidas trainers and i see no footwear advantage.

I can also tell, whatever height anyone decides to give Milo, i can safely say he did not look taller next to you and if i had to make guess ---- you seem to edge him or would edge him thus, Milo does not appear taller then 5'8 at his lowest, if your lowest is 5'8 hence making ------- Adam Sandler appear in the 5'7-range next to him and this is the case in most shots of the two.

Now i know Adam Sandler is within 0.5-inch of Chris Rock's height and I know how these two appear next to a whole of other celebrities and they fair pretty well and this would mean even my pragmatic height guesses might be optimistic.

Can you see Adam as being a bit shorter or of the same height as Milo as evident by the comparisons?

Milo 5'7.75-5'8
Rob 5'8
Sandler ---- not taller then Milo
Chris Rock ----- Similar in height to Milo and Rob
Editor Rob
it can be hard comparing with Milo nowadays because he has developed a desire to look taller, usually by rising up on one foot. Suddenly a guy in 5ft 9 or 9.5 range with looser posture can look the same as him...
Endy said on 18/Feb/16
I don't think he's 177cm,I think at maximum 175cm,not more
Johno said on 4/Feb/16
But then again is a bit shorter then Chris Rock, who is similar height to Eddie Murphy and Jamie Foxx.

@Danimal - that's an odd shot giving Hetfield height advantage. Adam is actually taller than he looks - during Punch Drunk Love, he was 5'10.5 - 5'11" (I didn't measure him, but plenty of 6-foot guys there to compare with). Even with the photo above, Brooklyn is wearing 140mm Louboutins (5 1/2" height) - which makes her 6'2.5".
James C said on 21/Nov/15
I know he wouldn't grow anymore after like 18. When he was younger like in happy Gilmore, and billy Madison when he was thinner he actually seems more 5'9 5'9 1/2 range maybe just 5'9 flat or just about 5'9. Though in later movies he played in, and when he is heavier in built or buff he seems more 5'10 5'10 1/2 like he could look 5'11. It's funny what weight can do.

all heights should be seen as without footwear.
MurMiles said on 5/Jul/15
Not quite 5-10, for sure. Check stills from "Pixels." Wearing boots next to 5-7 Michelle Monaghan with her in heels, she's a bit taller.
MJKoP said on 28/Jun/15
He's not under 5'10" but can certainly give that impression with his shameful posture. Likely measured 5'11" once in flat shoes, hence his claim.
big chris said on 22/Jun/15
5'10' seems about right for Sandler.

What do you think are the chances of him being the full 5'10"? He looked exactly the same height as Guy Pearce in Bedtime Stories. He also appeared taller than Andy Samberg in That's My Boy.

NO way he's 5'9. Look online and you can see videos of him playing for fun with Kevin James, Mcenroe, and Courier at the US open.After the match, they stand together for post match interviews. They are all wearing athletic shoes, Mcenroe and Sandler are wearing very similar Nike's. Some Nike's are a touch taller than others - dual air vs zoom air etc...but for sure, nobody is wearing lifts out there.

5'11.5 Mac towers over Sandler. The camera is closer to him, but nevertheless, no way Sandler is two inches shorter. 5'8

In his 90s and early 00s movies especially airheads, and happy Gilmore he looks like he can be my height I'm measured anywhere between 5'9 and 5'9 1/2. But in his newer movies like bedtime stories he looks taller then 5'9 1/2, maybe it's just the way he's built

Rob, being an Indian, breathing Cricket all round. I met Dale Steyn in one of the IPL matches. He is about 178-79, strong 5'10. I vary from 172-73 most day, earlier about 174. But watched a night match. 99.9% Dale is wearing sports snickers. Sandler looked more 174-75 cm. Rob his lean figure and deceptive face can make him appear taller. Did you see in the movie the 6'0 guys clearly made him look shorter throughout the movie. Rob i am really serious about this one since i can confirm 178-79 for Dale. By the way most cricketers lie too, they are like celebs here. Virat Kohli claims 5'9 looks more 5'7.5". A guy called Sehwag claims 5'7 and is max 5'6. Also Rob can u add cricketers fulfilling the Indian desire: Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Wasim Akram, Brian Lara, Shane Warne, your own Alaister Cook,Andrew Fintoff etc.

Thanks for tolerating such a long comment wont trouble u again. Thanks Rob.

He was eye to eye actually with Philip Seymour Hoffman in Punch-Drunk Love when he confronted him in the furniture store out room, if anything Hoffman could look slightly taller. 176cm could be closer. Either way 5'11 is clearly silly for him.

I think 5ft10/178cm is closer for Sandler. Watch old SNL and you'll see he has more than 2in on Chris Farley (listed 5ft8 but could've been a hair shorter?) and is about level with Chris Rock (maybe a strong 5ft10?).
Cnut the Great said on 27/Sep/13
he looks 5'9" to 5'9.5" the listing seems accurate... he never seems tall, and if were really 5'11" there would be times he would seem like a tall person. He also never seeems short. If he were under 5'9" there would be times when he looks like a short person, but he never does.... he is dead on average

If he was solid 177cm(5'10 range) Chros Rock wouldn't be so comfortably taller. 1cm isn't that noticeable, 2 is. His posture is bad, so I can believe 5'9.5, but no more than that. Sorry, but "5ft10 minimum is wrOng(and perry doesn't look over 5'9 with 192cm Lee Pace)...

Without having done the research, my guess is that five foot eleven is a very popular claim for men who are exaggerating their height. They want to be thought of as taller than they are, but they flinch from claiming six feet, because that would make them officially tall. It's the reverse of the phenomenon where women who are six feet or over will claim to be five foot eleven.

Nah, I think 5'9.5" is accurate. 5'9" at the absolute lowest. I swear if you looked up "average height" in the encyclopedia, you would see a picture of Adam Sandler. He just has a tendency to hunch or slouch a lot, so he sometimes gives the impression of 5'8".

tall guy said on 21/Sep/12
I think this listing is off. In the movie 'anger management' he stood next to Heather Graham (listed 5'8", 173 cm on this site). And easily had 3 inches on her. In all of his movies he looked rather tall. 5'11" is spot on for this actor. I can buy 5'10.75".
Dan said on 21/Sep/12
How can Brooklyn Decker by 5'9", she looks like she's wearing at least 3" heels, and if Sandler was standing with good posture, they'd practically be the same size. That would make Sandler around 6", which I also find hard to believe. I would say about 5"8 for Decker barefoot, and about 5"10 barefoot for Sandler, judging by the picture and the footwear being worn.
Silent d said on 14/Sep/12
In the above photos he is definitely 176cm. The girls are wearing heels. Fouad if he was down to your neck, that'll make him 5 foot 6. Do you mean he was up to your ear?
