American actor best known for starring in movies like Meet The Parents, Night at the Museum, Tropic Thunder and There's Something about Mary.

5'9 is not short at all. It's average

He claimed to be "about like 5'7" on the Rodman World Tour TV series here:

It bothers me that even when he jokes about his height, he still exaggerates it in a way that suggests he wants people to think he's taller than he actually is. People who are actually 5'7 do not look like this, look at James McAvoy, Scott Wolf, even Tom Holland at 5'6.5-.75 looks noticeably closer to average height - people like him make the height of 5'7 seem shorter than it actually is.

Ive seen meet the parents Hes not that short he looks average height i guessed like 5"9 but if you guys say so
Edward M. said on 1/Apr/23
There's a good picture of him and Jon Stewart standing right next to each other, similar footwear and everything. If Jon is 5'6.5, Ben looks a solid inch shorter. I would peg him at no taller than 5'5.5
Jtm said on 14/Feb/23
shorter than zelensky listed under 5'6 here when they are standing side by side and looked fairly short in next of kin. he pulls of looking 5'7 in some of his films like there's something about mary and meet the parents but he's lucky to be 5'6 even on his best day.
dreus23 said on 11/Feb/23
@George K

What's weird is that he actually usually pulls of 5'7 if not over it in his movies, but then suddenly appears to be sub 5'6 in premieres, red carpets and whatnot. Look at him with the Severance cast or with 5'8 Sean Penn and it becomes pretty clear that the guy isn't over 5'6
Cooper Clarke said on 29/Jan/23
@George K If you think that's bad then look at the average votes. That's even less than Rob's current listing.
George K said on 14/Dec/22
I think this height listing is a complete injustice to the man. He definitely doesn't give off 5 foot 6 vibes, he is surely atleast 5 foot 7 with perfect posture and looks it alongside many celebrities in movies. I think he was honest with his 5'7 claim.

πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸΌ I was channel hopping a few minutes ago when I came across some dancing animals, grooving to a song which went….

🎢🎡🦁 β€œWe like to move it move it! We like to move it move it!” 🦁🎡🎢

Tails were swinging in time to the music and paws were stomping away, and I absolutely creased up laughing. The film is called β€˜Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa’ and it is an animated movie. From what I can gather, a load of animals have escaped from a zoo. Ben is among the stars doing the voices, and you don’t need to be tall to be given the plum parts for that!

I want to see it from the beginning, so it goes over to plus 1 hour in a few moments.

Ben can have 5ft6. πŸ˜„πŸ‘πŸΌ
dreus23 said on 20/Aug/22
Probably not a solid 5'6 but close to it nonetheless. He looks at least 2 inches shorter than Tom Cruise in every photo I've seen with them (although Cruise could be wearing elevators or lifts or whatever) and sometimes more than an inch shorter than Robin Williams. He also looked fractionally shorter than Zelensky in the video where they met

Click Here

But admittedly, there are pics where Stiller looks a bit taller than Robin Williams too, and in the pics with Zelensky they look the exact same height, with Stiller maybe even having the edge with a few mm. Also as @Deswanto mentioned he didn't look that much shorter than 5'10-5'11 Owen Wilson. Yeah, 5'6
David Zelisney said on 10/Aug/22
Yes, Ben would be no more than 5'6.5. His recent visit in Ukraine with Zelensky shows they are are about the same height. Zelensky is 5'6 as well. Tom Cruise must be wearing his patent elevator shoes.
Deswanto said on 4/Aug/22
He's a good 5'6, not quite 5'7 the whole time let alone 5'8.

IS he also an intense lift wearer because he doesn't look towered by Owen Wilson who's over 5'10
Arch Stanton said on 21/Jun/22
He looked a bit taller than Zelenskyy I thought...
Tilon kluh said on 28/Mar/22

He looked like a dwarf compared to Vince Vaughn in Dodgeball. Despite how Ben Stiller was filled out with muscles, it looked like Vince could knock him out in a single hit while eating him alive. I think Ben is 5’6” as listed, even if he does edge out Jack Black.

fkeo said on 2/Aug/20
Looks 5'3" next to Tom Cruise.

That's not a 4.5" difference. LOL
5'7.5 for Tom, and 5'5.5 for Ben.
Roberto N said on 16/Feb/22
Adan I totally agree! I thought he was 5’9 this whole time.
PKW5 said on 31/Dec/21
I’m a bit mystied by Ben’s height. In Night At The Museum he seems to have an inch or two on 5ft 7in Ricky Gervais and Robin Williams. So he either wears lifts or they were/are shorter.
He doesn’t have particularly short legs so he could be a genuine 5ft 7in.
The photo with him and Tom Cruise, Cruise obviously has his 2-3inch lifts to elevate him.
John moss said on 29/Dec/21
Yeah 5'6 seems about right
Adan Martinez said on 15/Dec/21
Growing up watching him in many movies I never imagined he’d be 5’6 he always seemed like an average height man to me. I thought he was 5’9 (175cm)
Toby Barrett said on 23/Nov/21
5'6 peak 5'5.5 now
5'10 Dude said on 12/Aug/21
He seems to have really good proportions. He's short, but he doesn't really look all that short. Seeing him next to other celebrities though makes me think he is no more than 5'6.
Zach Catselbow said on 22/Apr/21
Rob Paul, if I am 169.4 cm when I wake up, 168 cm midday, and 167.5 cm right before bed, would I look shorter or taller than Ben Stiller if we were in a picture together?
Editor Rob
I think it's going to be a question of whether you have better posture than Stiller (who at times isn't exactly standing tall)...might be hard to spot much difference.
Chaos Control 6'2.5 said on 7/Mar/21
I was really confused about this height for him until I realised I confused Ben Stiller with Ben Miller

@Jkiller More like lower. He started to look 167cm.
BigCharles said on 21/Jan/20

How tall do you think Austin Abrams is ? 5ft7in ? Ben Stiller played with him in Brad's Status movie. They looked similar in height during the movie but after that, on the premiere Austin Abrams looked over an inch taller. Abrams is known for playing in the movie like Paper Towns and TV series The Walking Dead. He is also listed 5ft8in everywhere but I'm not sure he is that tall. I'm suprised that he doesn't have page here and nobody mentioned him before on this page so I decided to ask about his height.

Full 5ft 8 looks a bit high
Jkiller said on 17/Jan/20
167.5cm seem accurate. Maybe a tad over 5'6.
James G. said on 6/Dec/19
If he is 5’6” (I think he’s 5’6 3/8”) then Jack Black is NOT 5’6”. Right rob? Look at them side by side in any photo.

I give him a Birthday guess of 5ft6. 😁

Spot on, 168 throughout the day
Litenko said on 14/Sep/19
Rob! 5'6 his currently height? i think he was 5'7 in his young age or 5'6.5
Editor Rob
I still go with the listing as the kind or range Ben has been in his 30's
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 31/Jul/19
Rob, do you think Jack black had a higher chance being 1/8 over 5'6 or Ben Stiller?
Editor Rob
The more I seen of Stiller over the years the shorter he looked, but Black I feel has generally never seemed as short as 5ft 5 or as tall as 5ft 7 overall, both I would think are pretty close when measured.
cmillzz said on 25/Jul/19
Tall male actors inflate their height all the time as well. Seems like you have a problem with short men for some reason (wtf is up with that asinine β€œshort-assed” remark)? Are you just projecting your own insecurities onto them?
Drexl said on 7/Jun/19
Five four and a half if he's lucky. Short-assed male actors are notorious for misrepresenting their height.
c-mo said on 19/Mar/19
5'6 seems a little too low for him . he looks taller imo

my guess would be 5'7
Anonynon said on 19/Dec/18
Looking at various pics online, he does look on the short side, but nothing that sticks out. I think his long arms stick out more than his height... his real height is between 167-169. I think 5'6" is a good call, but when he stands next to Cruise his eye level is at his mouth, so he can be a weak 5'6" (167) as well...
RichardSpain said on 16/Dec/18
Not more than 167/168 cm . He looks short.
Yang said on 20/Sep/18
I would say he is 5ft 5inch range because he seems more than inch shorter than Jonah Hills whose height is 5ft 6 range. Referring to the one that they took picture with Vince Vaughn who's 6ft 4.5 as one of tallest celebrities other than Kobe Bryant on movie premiere. Pretty much similar height w/ Harry Potter star Daniel Redcliffe whos also 5ft 5 range....
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Aug/18
I recall watching a movie Jack Black and Ben Stiller did together through out the whole movie Ben look 1/4-3/8 shorter than Jack. That makes me wonder if Ben Stiller was always 5'5 3/4 claiming 5'7 with shoes. Jack Black always look between 5'6-5'6 1/8 to me.
trumbo said on 11/Aug/18
I passed him in NYC years ago. I'm a weak 5'9 barefoot, and he was really short. 5'5 max.
Nik said on 2/Jun/18
5'6" is possible but he is probably 5'5" and change!
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/May/18
Chances to say Stiller have lose 1/4 or a fraction now at 53.

@Joel, JTM

Yes dodgeball is a very good example of his height. Also I saw While We are young but I think Driver lifts so maybe that movie is not as good to use. Be does look 5'5 or 5'5 1/2. Because he is short it makes his comedy ten times better because he has more odds against him. I wonder if any model looking, good body, tall, young, comedians are a success?
Im 171CM said on 8/Feb/18

5'5 1/2. c'mon--just look at dodgeball. super short.

Rob, I think you should upgrade him to your original 1.69 meter estimate. I think thats more appropriate for him.
Dave said on 11/Jan/18
A bit over 5 foot 6
Jtm said on 28/Nov/17
He doesn't look over 5'5 with Adam driver in while we're young and not sure about the footwear but he's at least inch shorter than Brady Corbet listed 5'6 here.
Dmeyer said on 20/Nov/17
To me he didnt look under 169cm in person
KH said on 3/Oct/17
Considering he says himself he is 5'7 just knowing that and how most people, especially celebrities even tall ones, like to pad there height he has to be right around this range after seeing him in a lot of movies. Can't imagine a full 5'7. He looks like a 5'6 guy maybe 5'6 and some change. Always hilarious.

He's at least 4 inches shorter than Adam Sandler and I doubt Sandler is over 5'9.
Timothy Jones said on 31/Aug/17
Great actor. Does not seem as low as 5 foot 5. I'd give him atleast 5 foot 6.
Simon said on 12/Aug/17
I've met him. He's tiny. Absolutely tiny. I'm 6' even. I was in flats, he was in big lifts and still 5" shorter than me. I'd go 5'4 to 5'5" for this guy. My wife is 5'3" and in heels was the same height as him in lifts.

I'd give him 169cm he doesn't appear to be 170.18cm

5'5 for Stiller is too low. It would put Hoffman at 5'4 and Michael J Fox at 5'1

GP said on 28/Mar/17
There was a photo that Dmeyer had with him from Dodgeball. If I remember correctly he looked at 6" shorter. Didn't Jonah Hill look taller than him by at least an inch? I just checked and Rob lists Jonah at 5'6.25". I doubt there is only .25" difference between them. He needs to be downgraded to closer to 5'5" or Jonah needs to be upgraded to 5'7", but I think Jonah is around 5'6" and Ben is 5'5".

I always thought he was more 5'7 and has loose posture

Too bad if he is really 167 and looks 1.55
John said on 26/Mar/17
Rob, this is him with 5'7.75 Tom Cruise. Click Here
Editor Rob
yes, I had one of Those pictures from a few years ago...even with an inch of lift, it would be thoroughly shameless listing stiller and cruise at 5ft 7!

The heel on Cruise shoe isn't over an inch. If he had a 1.5 internal lift he's still not going to get much over 2 inches...
mande2013 said on 11/Mar/17
Agreed. I've seen Stiller in person with flip flops on, and 167-168 range seems way too low. I thought he could be close to 169.
Nova176 said on 30/Jan/17
He might need to be upgraded. I've been trying desperately to see Tom as a full 5'7.75/172 but he doesn't look 2 inches taller than Stiller. About a little more than a inch, I could easily see him as being 5'6.5 with Edward Norton as well
Dmeyer said on 28/Jan/17
On person 10 years back looked more 168-9cm than 167-8cm
John said on 19/Jan/17
Always looked 5'4.5 to me.
Eddie said on 4/Dec/16
I am a strong 5'8", and have a good friend of mine who is at best 5'7", or close enough to it. He recently met Ben Stiller and said that he was either his height, or a little bit shorter than he was. So, there is no way that stiller is over 5'7", and could very likely be 5'6" in his older age. I think this height is spot on accurate.
Maztt said on 29/Nov/16
Looks a good 5.5 to me
mande2013 said on 15/Nov/16
I've seen him in person with flip-flops on. He seemed a bit taller than 5'6 flat, more 5'6.5-5'6.75 honestly.
S.J.H said on 14/Nov/16
Rob, how possible was 5'5.75 167cm for stiller since 5'6 is few mm under 168cm?
Editor Rob
SJH, I wouldn't go this low for Stiller. If he looks it at times, I think it is just a bit of poorer posture.
Darius said on 6/Oct/16
Hey rob, isn't 168 cm a few mm above 5'6" with 5'6" being somewhere in 167 range?
Editor Rob
yeah 167.64, but I just display the closest whole cm for any of the feet/inch marks.
Dmeyer said on 4/Sep/16
HΓ© fulled me for near 170cm in person
JoeB89 said on 3/Sep/16
Hey Rob, what do you think is his lowest height? 167.5 or 168cm?
Editor Rob
now at times he can look under 168, but maybe it is just posture. I suppose at age 50 a little fraction lost isn't unrealistic.
Powerhouse said on 8/Aug/16
He is built oddly, like a chimpanzee. He gives a impression of looking almost kid size. If he is really 5'6 than 5'6 can look shorter than i thought. I feel like Stiller and Jack Black are both 5'5-5'5.5. He is quite a bit shorter than Tom Cruise, and he gets dwarfed in everything he is in. If he looks that tiny on screen i seriously doubt he is 5'6.

don't think he's really lost much height at all, even by 50.

Apparently his mum is the same height as him what do you think Rob?
Editor Rob
in a few photos from when she was 70-80 he looks a couple of inches taller, but then many women at that age have lost 2 or even 3 inches, so it's not unreasonable to think she was at least his height when younger.
MD said on 13/Feb/16
I wasn't arguing lost height, I was arguing a mislisting from the start.
Editor Rob
he can definitely look sub 5ft 6 at times, but how much of that could be just looser stance is debatable.
MD said on 10/Feb/16

Unless there is something in Lewis (5'7.5") Hamilton's shoes, here, something does not appear right with this listing, because they are in very similar footwear, and not only that but while both are not standing their straightest, Hamilton is probably losing even a bit more than Stiller.

Click Here

It appears even if straightened up, the top of Stiller's would maybe get up to Hamilton's eyebrows?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure Ben's lost height by 50. I'd be surprised if Ben didn't have worse posture than lewis, who at times can still look 5ft 8 range.

With user Dmeyer,he looks like he might be a weak 5'6 guy in all fairness...

It was hard for me to accurately determine how tall I thought he was. I spotted him in some Tuscan hill-top village with his wife where we just so happened to be on vacation at the same time. Understandably, we weren't on flat ground, but his body type honestly seemed like that of a weak 5'7 guy.
mande2013 said on 6/Feb/16

Yeah solid 168 / 5ft 6.25 like Jonah Hill and Sean Astin. Surprisingly wears thin sneakers a lot of the time and would likely measure just about 5ft 7 in those ones above.
OK123 said on 23/Jun/15
very solid 168cm
mande2013 said on 19/Jun/15
I really think he's more weak 5'7 than flat 5'6, so 169cm range may be more accurate.

There is no way Stiller is taller than Cruise - 'Markus' Where do you get that from?! Cruise is at the least an inch taller. I know rob has him at 5ft7.75 but i would wager a hefty bet that Cruise is around 5ft8.25
Markus from Italy said on 13/Oct/14
I think Stiller's taller than Cruise. There's plenty of images on the web showing that Stiller is taller (bare foot) than Cruise on heels so if Stiller is 169 cm than cruise is at least 4 cm shorter.
Sam said on 19/Aug/14
Hmm, he might just be edged out by Jon Stewart. Stiller's one of the few guest Stewart meets on even ground.
Sam said on 13/Aug/14
He does look only a fraction taller than 5'6" Jack Black and very close to 5'6.25" Jonah Hill so I guess this is accurate.
the shredder said on 13/Aug/14
maybe he is at least as listed , 5'7 is not that hard to buy for him.

looks 5'5ft
5ft7 in bare feet said on 22/Jun/14
Between 5'6 and 5'7 sounds about right to me. 175 sounds way heavier than he looks in any of his movies. Unless he stopped exercising and developed a beer gut between movies. He's usually in pretty good shape.
Dmeyer said on 15/Jun/14
Rob i met Stiller i think 169cm is his low height Wakes at 171cm you had him 5'7.25 8 yrs ago , can look 170cm at Times so 169 is good i dont think he is just 168cm

Based on @seahawksfan pictures, I'd give the following heights:

167cm Jack Black
169cm Ben Stiller
173cm Robert Downey Jr.
Damon said on 13/May/14
175 lbs?!! That's pretty crazy. He was fairly muscular in Tropic Thunder and may have come near 165 lbs, which, for a 5'6.5 guy is fairly built. But, from what I've seen, he hasn't kept that figure and seems more like 150 lbs. He's never had very big legs
Clay said on 10/May/14

@SeaHawksfan That is not a .75-1 inch difference with Jack Black. More like a few millimeters maybe. I think he is flat 5'6". For some reason Bieber looks taller than him though.

Looks about a flat 5'6.

I think Stiller is 168cm flat at night tops. He has not started shrinking, he was always 5ft6-7 anyway he looked it in movies. 5ft8 is a blatant lie.
avery_t said on 21/Oct/13
men don't start to shrink until their late 50's. people DO shrink, but it happens much later in life that people under 25 think it does.
Yves said on 18/Oct/13
I don't understand how people now rating him lower than 5'7, he maybe now 5'7 but before he was taller than 5'8 that's for sure.
avery_t said on 16/Oct/13
I'm 5' 7.5" at breakfast and 5' 7" in the afternoon. I'm Jewish and about the same age as Stiller (4 years younger). Anyhow, once when I was leaving Equinox is NYC, Greta Gerwig checked me out (she was sitting in the lounge area on a laptop). It was about the time she made that movie with Stiller. From this, I deduce that I am the exact same height as Stiller and vice versa, which would make him 5' 7" at lunch.
tinybubbles said on 14/Oct/13
Saw him last night at the Mill Valley Film Festival. He looked fabulous! I was a few feet away and compared him to my height. Accounting for his dress shoes, I would say he is 5'6".

169cm. He has bad posture. Actually all comedic actors have bad posture. I think it makes them funnier. Emma stone was wearing at least 4 inch heels. It's the oscars. She is not going to wear flats.
Christian said on 13/Sep/12
A friend of mine is filming with Stiller on Iceland. He said Stiller was just under 170 cm so I think Rob is pretty spot on.
johnnyfive said on 5/Sep/12
I think Stiller is between 5'4, or 5'5 MAX. 5'6 listed Emma Stone dwarfed him at the Academy Awards this year. If they were the same height, the difference cannot be this much, I don't care how big her heels are under that dress.

I agree , it does not matter if he is 5'5 or 5'7 its short below average so just accept the 5'6.5 listing and also that Cruise owns him !
Globotron said on 3/Dec/11
Jeez, leave the guy alone..5'5 5'6 5'7..whats the difference? either way he's short. so what if he lied about an inch or two, big many people bs about their height and weight?
chris said on 25/Nov/11
I met Stiller in New York City, didn't even realize he was standing right behind me at first! I'm only 5'1" and he's not a whole lot taller than me so I'd fall in with the around 5'5" crowd.

I'm starting to doubt if he's really 5'6.5.
We have also take in consideration that Robert de Niro can be 5'7.5 or even 5'7 flat today, and still looks around 2inches taller than him.

lmao, wtf? who's quoting you? making a mockery of YOU? that's not right - you find urself way 2 important Ka. wasn't alluding at you at all ye old paranoid. It isn't true I 'chop off' every celeb height. The heights listed here are estimates. I have my own estimates, but guys like Rampage, Rich Hall, Viper and Bon sometimes, Metric especially are trolls. For guessing heights, I'm not driven by emotions like you, but reference points. When I guess them, I try to make the difference in estimated heights consistent. As for 'chopping off'...Cruise is 5ft7.5 at least for me. Clooney is 5ft11 or a fraction more peak. Had spinal injury. Arnold as listed, or a cm less. Sly 5ft9 peak. Kurt Russell 5ft9 at least. Looked 5ft9.5 in 'Escape from New York'. Sorry for seeing Stiller, Downey Jr. and Efron shorter than Cruise. Sorry for agreeing with Brad when he says Damon, Sly and Cruise are the same height. you seem so touched by my comments. more than by those made by other posters. I can understand that. it's just common sense. if I was a troll, you wouldn't be so touched.

Anyway about Stiller, 169-170 is right for him, take either of those marks. Dmeyer got this one spot on. Ben does have a small frame so gives a shorter impression compare to more broader 5'7-5'8 guys. That also means Cameron Diaz is somewhere in 171-172 range, weak 5'8

I met him at an event. I would guess him to be around 5'4 or 5'5 tops. Very short, but very cute.

5ft4 is crazy. Stiller is ~5ft6. as listed, just short, nothing especially short. Diaz is inch or inch and a half taller barefoot, but she towers him in heels drastically.
Aaron said on 1/Apr/11
"Ben stiller wears size 11 and is 5'6.5?! im 5'11 and wear 10s"
I'm almost 6'5" and I wear size 12, and I'm by no means a small guy. Think about it... Stiller is inches taller than both his parents. He probably did sports of some kind (unlike me) and his feet developed accordingly. He's also got a huge head for his height and wears lifts like crazy so he looks and seems 5'8" or taller.
Legend said on 31/Mar/11
5'5 more than likely
Kevin said on 27/Mar/11
Years ago I did background on "freaks and geeks". They made two lines behind the scenes and told us when to cross the set. Ben Stiller stood right next to me (6-0) waiting to do his guest appearance. 5'6" is very generous.
