that link jason provided on 5th feb 06 has bana, pitt, and the 3rd guy which looks like orlando bloom, which is listed as 5'10.5" on this site. draw a straight horizontal line across pitt, and the line ends up under pitt's nose. from that line to pitts eye line, its about 3 inches maybe. either blooms height is incorrect, or sometihng is amiss here.

everyone knows brad is six feet tall barefoot and after he has been up for a while he shrinks to 5-11 and a half. when you've been up for a while you shrink a half an inch. when you get up after a lot of sleep you stand a half inch taller then you would after being up for a long while.
adsfdw said on 5/Feb/06
hes 2 inches shorter than bana in that pic. so hes 6 with lifts. pitt should be same heigh as the other tiny nerdy guy
Jason said on 5/Feb/06
Lifts? Yep.

funkmonk said on 5/Feb/06
Close to 6'2" Eric Bana here. Lifts?
dmeyer said on 5/Feb/06
i think brad wear 4" heels sometimes that bring him to 6'3" and look 6'2"
dmeyer said on 5/Feb/06
in the pic with pitt and kidman and cruise kidman is wearing heels wich make her look aleast 6'1" and brad steel look taller brad can look up to 6'2"
d said on 4/Feb/06
tj, the top of the head to the eyes is supposed to be about 5 inches tho. Especially on a big guy like freeman here. So your description equates a 4 inch difference
d said on 4/Feb/06
San, i wonder if pitt was wearing cowboy boots in that first pic with Jim, he sure looks dressed like one.
The paltrow pics, he could be 3 inches on her for all the help the useless camera angle gives. He's not wearing trainers tho, its those boots again, in dress clothes..?
The schwimmer pics say somthing, anymore in that set?
Roger said on 4/Feb/06
hey, wasn't Brad a few inches shorter than David Schwimmer on friends? A friend of mine saw Schwimmer in NYC. He reckoned he is 6'. Then I guess you should list Brad and the Ocean's 11/12 guys an inch shorter than what you have them at.
John said on 4/Feb/06
No that photo is the real Pitt and Freeman, You can see Pitts hair is wet in the photo..
San said on 4/Feb/06
Hey look at this...
Somethings fishy can a 5'11" Brad Pitt appear as tall as 6'1.5" Jim Carrey? Looks an inch and a half shorter than 6'05" Schwimmer on Friends. Perhaps lifts or boots?
And yet he looks a smidgen taller than a 5'9.25" Gwyneth Paltrow. Both are in trainers/floaters with not much of a heel.
d said on 3/Feb/06
"I might be mistaken, d, but isn't that picture of wax statues of them?"

better ask john, he says it was a candid shot during shooting. Freeman is easily 6'2.5 tho, regardless.
sam said on 3/Feb/06
I might be mistaken, d, but isn't that picture of wax statues of them?
chris said on 3/Feb/06
He's definetly under 6. Probably he's 5'10. In every picture with Gwyneth Paltrow he's wearing heeled shoes, while she's wearing sneakers.
d said on 3/Feb/06
"Ok, I have here the pic that proves Mr. Pitt is 5'9-5'10.. Here he is with Morgan Freeman a guy everyone knows is 6'2.. it is a candid shot of them after filming a scene in Se7en...."

that's 4 inches, so 5'10.5. providing equal posture, footware, and level ground.
John said on 3/Feb/06
And another one, come on look at the "heels" he wears, Sorry people but I dont think the all mighty Pitt is a tall guy --5'10 5'10.5 max
get glenn to get a photo with him said on 3/Feb/06
some of these predictions of 5'09" and lower are pretty outrageous. i think you guys just want to lower him down for whatever reason, probably because he is so popular. like another poster has said, being less than 5'10" or 11" and pulling off 6'+ heights is going to look awkward, and out of place.
Ben McKenzie, aka short man from the o.c., is a 5'8" guy, and you can tell, even with his doc marten boots in which he tries to gain a few inches. brad pitt is definitely taller than him. i would leave it at 5'11", because he doesn't seem to be over 6', and less than 5'10"
until more candid photos surface, i believe its giong to remain that way, unless the imfamouse glenn tracks him down.
Kara said on 3/Feb/06
i really dont understand y actors and actresses dont just measure their own heights, itd make our lives so much more easier, instead of making us guess all the damn time! oh and for the record...i'm 6ft 1 1/2inches, just incase i become famous one day! :D
John said on 3/Feb/06
Ok, I have here the pic that proves Mr. Pitt is 5'9-5'10.. Here he is with Morgan Freeman a guy everyone knows is 6'2.. it is a candid shot of them after filming a scene in Se7en....
d said on 2/Feb/06
that one really does, but that back boot may just be loose, dropping the heel. But you can almost see what looks like a lift through the thin material.
that one really shows a long appearing lower leg, and short arms.

5'7 -5'8 is still too low for a guy who can appear 6'1" in public. I've got him at 5'10.5. + lifts
175cm16andgrowing said on 2/Feb/06
Spike Dudley (wrestler): 5'8'', 150lbs... so if somebopdy makes Pitt 5'8'' and says around 160 he's just ill.
dmeyer said on 2/Feb/06
each time i see pics from brad and angelina brad look 15 to 17 cm taller than her since she is just over 5'7 it means brad apears 6'1.5" whi would he wear lifts she would know since she sleeps with him he must wear huge lifts but it true that you never see the guy with standard shoes like converse nike cortez shoes that cant have lifts it is true that all shoes he wears have possibility of lifts
filmfan said on 1/Feb/06
I reckon Pitt is 5'11 and 185lbs in troy, definately over 160lbs because I am 165 and he is bigger than me.
Viper652 said on 1/Feb/06
I thought Brad looked around 170-175 for Troy. But its possible he only weighed 163 as Jason suggests. He does have stick legs.
DudeX said on 1/Feb/06
wow, they didn't show the boots like that in the film. You caught him. It's obvious that there is, at least, 2 inches lift in these boots.
sixty said on 1/Feb/06
check dis boots owt!
In Fight club he needed 3" heels to reach Norton.
Tubbs said on 1/Feb/06
Saw pictures of Pitt with Peter O Toole. O Toole was ATLEAST 3 INCHES TALLER! No way is Brad a 6 footer - the 5'11 looks about right, I must admit, he can look a 6ft + guy, simply because of his build, but when you see him next to others, the illusion is smashed to pieces.
Jason said on 1/Feb/06
No, I can't see Jeff is around 225 and neither can anyone else here.

Dude, I don't know where you're from, but many men weigh 200lbs or more (though Brad Pitt and Jeff Hardy aren't among them), especially at 6'0'' +.
Hmmm said on 1/Feb/06
Wasn't he shorter than Geena Davis in Thelma and Louise? Someone rent that movie and tell me that he doesn't look like a total shrimp in it.
Cycklops said on 31/Jan/06
In that last pic Jeff Hardy looks to weight 175-180 at most. He's small.
175cm16andgrowing said on 31/Jan/06
Jason, you may not be and may not have ever been that muscle lie you think.
Jeff is around 225 - you can see it. People make McKenzie 5'7'' and 170lbs but they don't want to see a very muscle 5'11'' 203lbs guy and also not a 6' 212-225lbs guy.
Jason said on 31/Jan/06
Like these?

Anyone who thinks this guy (6'0'' pro wrestler Jeff Hardy) is 225lbs needs either their eyes or their brain checked, pronto.

175cm16andgrowing, the fact you insisted Jeff Hardy is 6'0'' 225lbs plainly shows everyone here that they can't take your ''estimate'' of Brad's weight in Troy, or anyone else's weight seriously.
Brett said on 31/Jan/06
there is one thing I dont believe, and that Pitt was near 200lbs in Troy, he has abit of muscle, but not that much, hes more a well defined look then a bulky look, I reckon he would have been 80-82kg, and normally around 75kg, so maybe 180-185lbs during Troy. But 200 or 225lbs , seriously I do not think so, I do lots of weights for Rugby, and I am 185-6cm tall and 95kg and I am pretty bulked for my height,only 9% body fat, while Pitt really is a slight guy, so I cant see him being a few inches shorter then me with an extra 7 kilos of muscle ( more like over 10kg less then me). If he were like 5'10-11 and 225lbs he would have looked like a beast, as for his height, I remember Letterman reffering to him as short, and that guys should be 6ft or more, I dont think he would have bought it up if Pitt was only 1 inch off at 5'11", he must be more like 5'10"
d said on 30/Jan/06

there's another pic with him appearing at the magical 6' mark.
175cm16andgrowing said on 30/Jan/06
Yes Jason, one of his best photos... there are a lot more.
Paltrow is listed as 5'9.25'', Pitt is 1.75'' taller than her - she had to look up a little. Pitt is 5'11''.
Jason said on 30/Jan/06

175cm16andgrowing also thinks that dude (he's 6'0') is 225lbs (102kg)...

Anyone else agree with him? *puts on white coat* ;)
jimmy said on 30/Jan/06
175cm16andgrowing, ok uve seen that pic with paltrow.

ok, so how much taller?
how tall is Paltrow?

u really need 2 grow up kiddo
175cm16andgrowing said on 30/Jan/06
1) Jeff is no drug-addict.
2) Jeff is 183cm
3) Jeff can be very muscle and very heavy... just look at some pics and you see what I mean. Someone said 180... lol!

4.Pitt is 5'10 or 5'11'', more like 5'11''
5. I've seen the barefoot pic and Brad is taller
6) he looked 203 in Troy even at 5'10''
Falcon said on 30/Jan/06
Hi guys,
I found a great picture of Brad... I think he is not more than 177 or 178 cm. The picture shows hm with some other unknown guys. He is pretty shorter than the others... I don't think that a 180 or 183 cm guy will look so short... I mean... Maybe the others are all 185cm tall but that would be kind of bizarre...
Thank you! :)
(See in OUT pictures of 2005... The pic is in the 11th serie)
Ball-A-Hallic said on 29/Jan/06
Pitt can look 6'0 but i think hes sr8 up 5'10 maybe 5'10.5 no bigger.
Anonymous said on 29/Jan/06
@175cm16andgrowing: Wake up kid, Pitt is about 5' 10" with an average sized frame at best. Even in Troy, he was not huge. Just buffer than usual and extremely cut as always. I know lean mucsle mass weighs more than fat, but Brad has a tiny waist and hips with average at best legs. Broad shoulders and and nice biceps are not enough to make a guy Pitt's size anyway near 200 lbs. No male actors give their barefoot height. The 5' 11" Pitt said himself in 1987 was with normal shoes, which means he's about 5' 10" barefoot, but can easily look 6' 1" in with the magic shoes, stiff posture and square shoulders.
Look at this pic of him back from 1988. It's pretty obvious he is of average height and I ain't buying he had a 2 inch growth spurt after the age of 24.
Jason said on 29/Jan/06
Because Brad was not 203lbs in Troy. Not physiologically possible as I've tried explaining to you a number of times. Man, I don't know why I'm replying about this again. Come on, you also said Jeff Hardy is 6'0'' 225lbs on the Matt Hardy page when the dude's like 185 and looks more like a drug addict than a pro wrestler. Are you being serious here or just having us on??? lol
adsfdw said on 29/Jan/06
175cm16andgrowing, have u seen that pic of pitt with paltrow both barefoot?
175cm16andgrowing said on 29/Jan/06
MAn why can't some people accept that you can be heavy and still thin? Why isn't this possible? Why? Why can't you accept that? I still say he's 5'11'' because not all stars are short and he looks his 5'11''. So... my sports teacher is 6' and weighs 175 - 185 and you know what? HE'S SKINNY. So... just because some people are not defined and think their heavyweight they think that thinner looking guys can't be like them.
I don't see why he should be 5'8''... Clooney would be 5'7''... You don't believe that yourself, do you?
Pitt would nearly be as small as Cruise where Cruise had 200 in LAST SAMURAI.
adsfdw said on 29/Jan/06
pitt doesnt claim to be 6 feet tall! he even WROTE HIMSELF in his stats in the early 90s as "5-11".

175cm16andgrowing said on 28/Jan/06
He himself said he's 203. And in newer pics, even at 5'11'', he can't be normal weight. So... yes...
They gave Damon 5'11'' and 187... true, in BOURNE, true (at 5'10'').
BTW why should Pitt's publicist say Pitt is 5'11'' while Pitt claims to be 6' all the time?
Adam said on 28/Jan/06
Hey Blah,

Is that article out there in cyberspace somewhere? Could you locate it?

Let's try and settle Pitt's true dimensions once and for all. I think of all celebs heights, his is the most enigmatic. I agree that he's five eleven or a little over. Not six though. He's six to six one with regular shoes.
Blah said on 28/Jan/06
A WSJ article not long ago infamously (mis)estimated the height and weight of various celebrities in an ill-fated attempt to prove the absurdity of the Body Mass Index. They estimated Pitt at 6-1, 203 lbs. His publicist replied that he was 5-11 and nowhere near 200 lbs.
mcfan said on 26/Jan/06

Maybe he's not as tall as I thought if Clooney is only 5'10.5.
RW said on 26/Jan/06
I dont know if i would have ever described Pitt as "lanky" i think he has more of an "athletic" build and I would put him 5'10 1/2
jimmy said on 26/Jan/06
that pic with paltroy barefoot is the ultimate proof hes 5-9...unless paltrow is a 6 footer!

end of the discussion
paleface said on 26/Jan/06
Thanks Benni. Tom, I am indeed a girl. A tall one who likes stilettos, but still a girl
Adam said on 26/Jan/06
There is no way in hell Pitt is five eight or five nine. Have you guys seen Interview with the Vampire? I've met Cruise, and he's a proven five seven without the aid of shoes, with normal shoes, he's about five nine. There's a scene in Interview, and from publications of the film, that Cruise wore three inch heels to play LeStat. At five ten or so, he's still a little shorter than Pitt in that film. Pitt wore regular three quarter inch heels. Watch that film, and notice the scene when Cruise hands over the cup of blood to Pitt. You can clearly see his three inch heels and he still is slightly shorter than Pitt. Its pretty clear, just from this film.....that Pitt stands five eleven or a little over as Editor Rob has him at. How could Pitt be so lanky and still stand five eight?? Your eyes do not deceive you. The man is five eleven or a little over, and stands about six one to six two with the aid of "shoes" and his good posture.

Compare these pics of Pitt with Duchovny:
and Glen with Duchovny:
Pitt seems to be about an inch and a half taller than Glen compared to the slouching Duchovny. Also keep in mind that Pitt was wearing very chunky boots in that pic from the movie Kalifornia. Glen claims to wear normal shoes, so Pitt may be even closer to Glen's 5' 8" than the inch and a half difference in those pics.
sixty said on 26/Jan/06
Jay I couldn't agree more.
Anonymous said on 25/Jan/06
yeah adam, you're right. he doesn't really wear chunky shoes. i was just guessing on how he can appear tall. To me the 2 pictures with Morgan Freeman are very telling that this guy isn't over 5'11" barefoot. just a guess though.
Adam said on 25/Jan/06
Hey Anonymous, he doesn't really wear super chunky shoes....though I'll concede that he may wear lifts. Nevertheless, the man looks six foot one to six foot two in public....he's between five eleven and six feet barefeet.
John said on 25/Jan/06
Hey anonymous, wow you must be a actor if you know the trick lol....Must be! :>)
Anonymous said on 25/Jan/06
he's no shorter than 5'10 and no taller than 5'11 with 5'10 1/2 being my guess. People wonder how he can look 6'1 or even 6'2 in some pictures. I'll tell ya how. Throw on a pair of chunky shoes like Doc Marten's that give you 2-1/4", slip in 3/4"-1" lifts, then shift your weight to the balls of your feet for a quick snapshot and all of the sudden a guy who's 5'10 looks a very believable 6'1" to 6'2".
John said on 24/Jan/06
I dont think he is 6'ft, or even 5'11...Look at him here with 6'2 Morgan Freeman..Boy he looks 5'10.
benni said on 24/Jan/06
tom, paleface is a girl!! its a heeled shoe
tom said on 24/Jan/06
paleface, you are 5-9 and you reach the 6 feet with shoes on? Im 6 foot and with shoes on I only get 3cm taller which is an inch and a quarter...
175cm16andgrowing said on 24/Jan/06
Fight Club... saw the movie a few days ago and because I'm kinda a member here I compared hiom to other persons. I noticed that his hairstyle made him look taller in the beginning... at the end he had nearly no hair left so I talk about the beginning. He looked 5'11'', 6' with the hair... no, not 6', more liek 5'11.5''. And his weight... 180 at least. Ben McKenzie is said to be between 5'7'' and 5'9'' and 170lbs... Pitt is taller and looked a little more muscular.
paleface said on 24/Jan/06
I agree with the 5'11 max assessment. I was watching 'Ocean's 12' -garbage, spare yourself if you can. Anyway. CZJ was wearing a pair of Jimmy Choos I happen to own and I noticed in the scene she was adopting a mega slouch and she looked less than an inch shorter than him. The shoe in question has a 4 inch heel, but for the sake of this site, I measured myself without the shoes 5'9. With the shoes a little over 6 feet - so I didn't quite get the full 4 inches, I think heels make your pelvis shift or something so you don't get the full effect. Anyway, she's a questionable 5'8 which means he can't be more than 5'11.
uhdbvsch said on 23/Jan/06
sixty, brad was way taller than letto and about an inch taller than Norton.
Jason said on 23/Jan/06
Possibly, but he honestly doesn't look any taller than 5'11''. 5'10 1/2'' is my personal guess.
Eddd said on 22/Jan/06
I think there is a chance that he grew an inch from 5'11 at 23. I'm not saying that's the case, but it certainly is possible. My father grew 1.5 inches at 22.
sixty said on 22/Jan/06
Brad was the same height with Jared Leto in FightClub. Some scene he looks 5'8-5'9. With shoes he as tall as EdNorton.
Jason said on 22/Jan/06
Because 203lbs sounds big and manly, and suggests he's tall. Seriously, browse through the pics of that 5'10'' (they're close enough in height, Brad's about 5'10 1/2'') amatuer bodybuilder's gallery and see how big he looks at low bodyweights. He is just as defined as Brad, even more in many pics. He has his weight in the photo recorded on some pics, as I said. If you still think Brad was 200lbs (or even 180) in Troy after that, then ... well, I'm dumbfounded.
d said on 21/Jan/06
the more troy shots i see of him the less i think he could be over 200lbs, even if he is 5'11. He's not bulky looking at all, just low body fat defined looking.

Its hard to compare weights by looks, tho. When i hit the 30ish mark in age, i gain 15 lbs out of nowhere. No extra muscle or strength or fat, i look the same. Instead of weighing 165, i'm now 180. I couldn't get myself past 170 in my entire 20's no matter what i did. I like to think its all in my head
175cm16andgrowing said on 21/Jan/06
there's muscle bulk and there's muscle that are defined... Brad seems to have defined muscles, why not? Half a year training for troy is enough time to get defined muscles. Oh and before I forget Brad looked a little fat... after Troy and before. He must be 5'11''. Why should he make up a weight of 159lbs and one iof 203lbs.
Jason said on 21/Jan/06
Oh, it doesn't link to exact pics, but anyway ... you can browse through his pics there and see what I mean. He has his weight in the photo listed with it in some pics. He's only 155lbs in the 3rd pic...
Jason said on 21/Jan/06
You can look good at low bodyweights relative to height. Here's a pic of a 5'10'' amatuer bodybuilder at 168lbs:

Pretty much the same size upper body as Brad in Troy, and unlike Brad he actually has some ok legs on him. If he had Brad's size legs he'd be even bigger in the upper body at that weight. I'm sure 175cm16andgrowing would have claimed he's 200lbs if we didn't know his weight...
Bakane said on 21/Jan/06
Sounds weird. But You maybe right about his legs.
On this pic, they are looking thin but not skinny.
Jason, Sorry but I won't go under 80 kilos !!! ;)
ella said on 21/Jan/06
I watch pics from his leight double . He is 1,82 m. Brad is also 1.82 m.
Jason said on 21/Jan/06

You can read links about Brad having to have a body double for his legs in Troy there. His legs are way under 23''. 23'' isn't too bad! Brad's body double was British kickboxer Buster Reeves, who I might add also doubled for Brad's overall physique in scenes where his face wasn't visible.
Jason said on 21/Jan/06
No, that's pretty accurate considering the size of his legs. As I've said, the legs account for a very big part of your bodyweight ... have skinny ass legs with a decent upper body physique and you're gonna be much ligher than you look. I don't see what's so hard to understand about that. Look at Phil Baroni, he's the same height as Pitt and has a larger upper body than Pitt at 184lbs. And he has good size legs versus Pitt's sticks. He'd easily outweigh Brad in Troy by 20lbs considering.
Bakane said on 21/Jan/06
Come on dude...Maybe you are right, I have never seen Pitt legs, he's maybe under 200 lbs but 163 ???? Are you crazy ? As I said before, I am 5'9,25 and around 172, I am doing a lot of sports, but my thighs are only 23"...
But when I see Pitt on this photo, he's look bigger than me. So I would say, he's minimum 10 lbs over his height... so for me minimum around 187 lbs if he's 5'11"
175cm16andgrowing said on 21/Jan/06
Yeah I can also go with 203, look at him. Good, skinny legs bur more people have them. Ben McKenzie, James Marsters, Mark Dacascos and many more. I don't have them, sadly :D. So... you wanna have proove of Pitt's weight? I give you proove of hi weight:
The guy on the photo is JAMES MARSTERS. He said he weighed 200lbs, then lost 50 when he came down to LA. But then, in Buffy Season 6 he weighed between 150 and 160lbs. BTW, he's 5'9.5''. You see, he's skinny. You see, Pitt isn't. You see, Pitt has to be heavier. You see, 5'11'' and 203 is accurate - 5'11''!
Jason said on 21/Jan/06
Ricardo Arona appears a much bigger (frame-wise) guy than Brad. And he's more brawnier in the upper body to boot. More importantly, he actually has the legs to go with his upper body physique - which account for a substantial amount of your bodyweight. Brad has none - they had to use a body double for his legs in Troy cuz they were so skinny. So, Brad's not gonna be anywhere near him in weight.

Baroni has a bigger upper body than Brad in Troy and he's only 184lbs at 5'11''. Not to mention, again - he has the legs to go with it. So, the weight difference is gonna be much more than it appears just from looking at their upper bodies.

I'm stumped how you can come up with 203 for Brad in Troy, mate. Not unless he has bones made of magnetic titanimum or something. ;) 163 would be more like it...
Bakane said on 20/Jan/06
Last post about his weight, I promise ;)
But look Jason : Here is Ricardo Arona,famous mma fighter 5'11" and 203 lbs.
Here is Pitt on Troy's set :
For me, they are looking quite similar.
Now a pic of Wanderlei Silva, same weight, same height.
You can see they don't look the same.
and now pic of Phil Baroni :
Who is 5'11" and "only" 184 lbs...
There's not a big difference between them...
So, that's why I can believe the 203 for Pitt.
And Pitt's bodyfat must be around the 8%.
Jason said on 20/Jan/06
I can't remember exactly what 46'' is in metric. I'm Australian and do use metric first and foremost ... just have not taken any measurements in the longest time lol. Ok, just did the conversion on a calculator and it's 117cm. Man, I can't see Brad's being anywhere near that. Just visually, I was way thicker than he was in Troy in the upper torso. I mean completely relaxed and normal measurement, not expanded. Mike Tyson's was only 43'' in his prime. My bodyfat at that weight was in the 14% range. Obviously Brad was much leaner, and I'm completely aware muscle is denser than fat, but I could uh ... even so never believe Brad was 200lbs or anywhere near in Troy.
Bakane said on 20/Jan/06
@Jason : The problem is that we are not agree about one important point: Pitt's height. I am quite suspicious about public people's heights and their declarations. But for me, Pitt can't be under 5'11", when you look at pictures of him with "normal" people, he looks pretty tall.
For the weight question, the 159 lbs at 23 seems good for me, I think he is a little over it in Fight CLub, as I said, maybe around 165 or less. But he is not the same guy in Troy...
Adam said on 20/Jan/06
I'm five eleven and when I wear decent shoes with 1.5 heels, I'm close to six one. Brad Pitt for some reason appears a lot taller than that. His long neck? His long torso? If he stated five eleven all those years ago, the man has definitely grown since then. I think now, he may be a solid six footer, from all the photos we've seen of him. You have to keep in mind, that other people in those photos may also be wearing decent heels. Pitt still stands taller than most people he stands close to.

[Editor Rob: Here is where teh 159lbs comes from - that's where he stated he was 5ft 11 in 1987, aged 23 or so.]

I don't know if Brad was even 150 in fight club. I mean, I think we can agree the guy's only 5'10 1/2''. And no doubt we also agree the guy was extremely ripped in that movie - extremely low bodyfat. Which is what makes him look muscular and bigger. Example, you have one fella at 5'10'' 145lbs with a low average bodyfat percentage and he'll look like a phuckin' twig. But, you could have a bloke 5'10'' 150lbs with say 6% bodyfat and he'll indeed look muscular. Kinda like Bruce Lee or Brad Pitt in fight club. Because more of his weight is muscle than the other guy, and of course his musculature is much more visible due to less fat obscuring it. Like I've said before, the leaner you are at an given weight, the bigger and more muscular you'll look.

About Edge, I don't think you can trust that guy. He's also said he's only 6'0'' in an interview. Now come on, even I don't believe he's only that height!
d said on 20/Jan/06
175cm16andgrowing, i was looking for the quote that would say HE said he weighed 159lbs, or 203 (and when). The many random girly girl's tribute sites aren't proof enough. they list his height all over the place, but his weight is usually 159. where's the source?

peter, if Rob listed his height at 5'8.5, it would cause even more debate...
Chris said on 20/Jan/06
Look at this pic about Brad
Bakane said on 20/Jan/06
@Jason, I hope that I will never be 200 lbs because I'm just over 5'9" And I don't want to look like a monster ;)
By the way, as I am French, I am using metric system, so for me your chest was about 115 cm, Right ? If this right, you should reconsider Pitt's chest. ON this pic,he's clearly About 115 even more. I'm about 106 and I'm 78 Kilos... If you take Jean Marc Mormeck,ex WBC WBA World champion in cruiserweight division. He is 181 cm tall and 88 kilos. he has a 110 cm chest. You can compare him to pitt and you'll see.
And don't worry, I'm not offenced at all, I just would like to know your "body fat percentage" (Hope you'll understand, I don't know the term in english). I think you didn't take this in consideration.
I was agree with you before I saw troy's pictures. In movies like Fight club he must be around 75 kilos even less but here... I am sorry but compare him with boxers or mma fighters like Wanderlai Silva or Ricardo Arona, Same Height, same Weight, different bodies...
@175cm16andgrowing, thks, concerning Mckenzie, I'll answer you on his page on this site, or ROb is going to be upset ;)
175cm16andgrowing said on 20/Jan/06
@d: Stands everywhere. Search for BRAD PITT HEIGHT WEIGHT and you get 159lbs OR 203 (Troy). In a low-carb article it was stated that the low-card diet was worth for Pitt. BEfore Troy he weighed 10lbs less it said.
@Bakane: Thanks. You seem to be a very cool sports person. Pitt really can't look anywhere near 140... some say McKenzie from THE OC is 5'7'' and weighs 170... bs I think what do you think? I guess IF he'S 5'7'' he's 150 or 160... the more newer pics I see of him the more I believe 150.
@Jason: Some people don't lie. Edge didn't say a thing about his height and why it was exaggerated from 6'4'' to 6'5'' last year... he's as tall as Orton. BUT he stated he lost weight and gained it and 10lbs back so... I believe him. You can see that. The guy's arms are HUGE. Hardy is smaller and HUGER :D.
Jason said on 20/Jan/06
His arms are a decent size there, but he hasn't got much else on him. Add that to having legs so small they had to use a body double for them and nope, no way.

When I was 203lbs, my arms were close to that size, though not quite as large ... but I had a 46'' relaxed chest (that Pitt sure doesn't have there) and bigger torso, combined with 42'' hips and thighs a hair under 27''. And that was at 6'1'' to boot. Pitt is only about 5'10 1/2'', so...

The only people who would think Pitt was 200lbs in Troy are those who have never been that weight or anything near it themselves (or never been that weight in anything near decent physical condition). I don't mean any offence to anyone, but the notion of Pitt being 200lbs in Troy is just laughable.
Bakane said on 20/Jan/06
I'm Sorry Jason, but I would like to take 175cm16andgrowing's defense.
If Pitt is really 5'11", he can be clearly near the 200 lbs mark on this picture.
And for your information, I am not a teenager, and I'm doing sport 8 hours a week.
Jason said on 20/Jan/06
203lbs for Brad Pitt in Troy is even crazier than 250lbs for Matt Hardy lol!

Like I said 175cm16andgrowing, I've been 203lbs before, so I know 203lbs for Brad in Troy is utter bollocks. You, on the other hand, are a teenager who clearly by the sounds of things has never seen 150lbs soaking wet and holding a brick (no offence), and are basing some of these outrageous weight listings of these actors being true on the *billed* weights of pro wrestlers, which any wrestling fan worth their salt knows are lies themselves. Seriously ... I hope you wise up some time. I don't mean to be mean but these weights you're toting about for these actors are fantasy. Just rubbish dreamed up by their agents.
Jusa said on 19/Jan/06
I think Brad is as tall as Wyclef Jean. And no, I don't believe that Wyclef has lifts in his shoes.
d said on 19/Jan/06
anyone examine the tahiti pics posted by justmatt below? First of all, Jolie is wearing 2.5-3" heels and brad is a good 4 inches taller than her.

Now if you compare red shirted guy to brad i'd say brad has 1.5"-2" or so on him. Look at their sitting knee height, brad might have 1" higher knees. Well, brad's wearing boots and the red shoes look like the have about as much heel as moccasins
not the best shot of the knees, but shows the footware.

So i say either brad is wearing normal unmodified boots here or else the other guy is hiding lifts in those red shoes.
d said on 19/Jan/06
"Why should Brad have lied in the 80s when he said he was 5'11''?"

what kind of an arguement is that? Just because he wasn't super famous at the time doesn't mean he can't exagerate his height, like most people do. It could be a round up, or a "with normal shoes" height.

"nd why shouldn't the listing's about his weight be correct, 159 - 203 (Troy)."

Did he say 159lbs himself? When and where. its odd to not just call it 160, you have a point. I could see him at 5'10.5 and 160lbs, maybe a bit heavier if he's still carrying extra muscle.
175cm16andgrowing said on 19/Jan/06
@Anonymous: He would be VERY VERY VERY skinny for an adult if he weighed 140lbs and was between 5'8'' and 5'9''. Why should Brad have lied in the 80s when he said he was 5'11''? nd why shouldn't the listing's about his weight be correct, 159 - 203 (Troy). I believe that, look at his build. He's never just 140 or 160. IMO 159 now again but normally around 180.
But your right. Sadly I can't see the rerun of FIGHT CLUB Sunday night because I have a test on Monday but what I know about Fight Club is that Brad looked "his" 6' - he isn'T but he looked them. He was very very muscle and slim back then, like 170lbs or just muscle and 5'11''. Just look at him and you can see that.
elio said on 19/Jan/06
people saying 5'8" and 6'2"???

Come realistic!
d said on 19/Jan/06 her sandle looks like it does have some heel on it, and i really can't tell what's on his feet. he looks to be in a deeper stride too, and he still pulls off an inch. same sandles here? thick heel. in this one, his stride looks more upright, but still only looks an inch taller. I don't think a normal stride changes height more than half an inch and their stride is similar. I'd give him 1.5" over paltrow maximum, based on those pics. Too bad nobody can agree on her height. those boots certainly do wonders for him tho.
funkmonk said on 19/Jan/06
Anonymous: 1) In the 'sandles pic' of Brad and Paltrow, there was 1 pic not pictures. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Pitt is in MID STRIDE, which means he will look shorter.This picture is therefore of very limited value. Least you can say is Pitt is slightly taller, but what slightly is is up to you imagination.
In other pictures were he is wearing boots he is 2+ inches taller. TRUE.
2)The bare foot pic of Brad kissing Paltrow is also of limited value in determining height because of the angle of the camera and the lowered heads.

That aside, from reliable sounding 'sightings' listed here I think he is 5'10"- 5'11".
- The Morgan Freeman and brad picture, standing side by side, see post below.
- His height beside Jared Leto in Fightclub again standing toe to toe- no camera angle, 1 inch taller if that.

BUT you said "everyone knows in Hollywood, that he wears enhanced footwear!" and in my post I was asking for the links or articles etc where it mentions that the people of Hollywood know that Pitt wears lifts. From newspapers websites etc.

Adam said on 19/Jan/06
From looking at all those recent photos of the man, I'm not too sure now. The guy definitely looks to be six foot two. He even looks taller than Chris Tucker. A really good way to examine height is to see where someone's eyes meet his. Most people's eyes he stands with, meets Pitt near his mouth. What da?? His shoes cannot add that much height...I'm starting to think the man stands six feet at least.
Anonymous said on 18/Jan/06
Compare this pic of Pitt with Morgan Freeman with this pic of me and Morgan Freeman.
Pitt and Freeman:
Me and Freeman:
Yes, the Freeman with me pic was actually taken at Madame Tussands wax museum. but supposedly they measure the people and have them at their exact height as they are in shoes in person. Notice Freeman's eyes are right about the level of the top of my and pitt's heads...making Pitt and I about the same height. I am exactly 5' 9" barefoot. in this pic I'm wearing sketcher trainers that make me a solid 5' 10.5 to 5' 11". Either Freeman is really like 6' 5" in person or pitt is about my size.
JUSTMATT said on 18/Jan/06
Pitt is 10 cm taller than 5.11 Puff Daddy in this photos and he is nearer to the camera!
Anonymous said on 18/Jan/06
@ funkymonk: Look at the pictures of him in sandles next to Paltrow compared to any pic of him in any of his special shoe/boots next to her. He clearly grows three inches, what more proof do you need besides your own eyes that he wears enhanced footwear? I conceed that everyone's opinion about his actual barefoot height are merely opinions and conjecture until one of us actually measures him barefoot in person. Well we all know that will never happen. But it's pretty damn obvious and is common knowledge provable by the photo comparison I mentioned before that he wears enhanced footwear. Comparing his height to others in fim/photos, we can conclude with some certainty that he stands about 6' 1" IN SHOES. Now considering the type of custom shoes he wears 99% of the time, it's easy to predict he is about 5' 10" (give or take a half inch). Which is far from short or tiny, especially in hollywood. But 5' 11' to 6' 1" barefoot he ain't. If he was he would look like 6' 3" in photos with the shoes he wears and posture etc.
Christian said on 18/Jan/06
Look at this picture
Brad is about 5'11''with shoes.

Anonymous said on 18/Jan/06
do you think he only wears "high top" style shoes all the time because he a has bad ankles? take it from someone who wears lifts and knows what shoes work best and how they look with lifts in them. and for those who keep commenting his shoes only have an inch and a half heel....newsflash: lifts are on the inside of the shoes. as a fellow lifter, i can tell he is getting a good 2.5 to 3 inches from his shoes. add to this his military posture and smallish but perfectly proportioned frame. all of a sudden he can look like a very convincing 6'1" guy in photos. but i'd bet my dick he's 5'10" at best barefoot.
funkmonk said on 18/Jan/06
"everyone knows in Hollywood, that he wears enhanced footwear!", can you offer some evidence that everyone in Hollywood knows he wears enchanced footwear? If not your statement is only conjecture.

Height Detective said on 17/Jan/06
This photos are interesting: Brad pitt & Angelina Jolie

I noticed that even Brad Pitt is with shoes , and i dont know if they have something inside , but Angelina is barefooted , and there is not and really huge difference in height , even counting the shoes of brad , and i dont want to blame him for hiding something there.
So he might be 180-2 cm and with that shoes he problably reach 1,84 cm.
So what do you think ?

JUSTMATT said on 16/Jan/06
Anon I don't know Wyclef Jean height, I only see his height on this site. Anyway I think that Pitt with shoes on is for sure between 6.1 and 6.2. I'm actually convinced on that. The problem is always the same: his shoes!! But I don't think that a 5.10 guy can look 6.1 or 6.2 also if he has lifts so in my opinion he is between 5.11 and 6, no more
dmeyer said on 16/Jan/06
hey rob wath convinced you to list brad at 5'11

[Editor Rob: shh, just between me and you, when nobody's looking he may creep back up again...don't tell anybody mind you ;) Brad can be in a range, and that range appears 180-1cm, he can look 6ft on occasions.]
dmeyer said on 16/Jan/06
if brad is only 5'11 it means he is alwais wearing lifts lately because in pics he looks 6 feet to 6 feet 1 the guy is 6'2" with shoes on

JUSTMATT, how do you know Wycleff Jean's height? And what do you think of Brad's boots?
Adam said on 16/Jan/06
Hey JUSTMATT.....those are great incognito photos that clearly show the man to be at least five eleven. Notice him in his one to one point five inch heels, and its easy to see how the man stands 6 foot one. All the naysayers out there, take a look at the crowd of people, and notice how there is no trickery here. Brad Pitt stands at least five ten and a half to five eleven.

Eddd said on 14/Jan/06
You know what, my parents are 6' and 5'7 (what Brangelina is 'supposed' to be).
After 19 years of seeing my parents standing together, I know that the difference between Brangelina is not as big as the height difference between my parents.
So, either Angelina is actually taller than what she says (5'7) or Brad is shorter.
Chris said on 13/Jan/06
If Pitt is said to be 5'11" by his PRers then he is probably 5'9"-5'10". I don't see why they would be bothered, he's still going to catch most girls' eyes on a crowded bus (or limo in his case) so what's the deal with making him taller, girls already love him.
d said on 13/Jan/06
there's more than just cheater movies out there to judge actors heights from. Meet Joe black was on tv last night. In the ending scene, it was clear that pitt was 3" taller than hopkins as he "stood." that doesn't rule out lifts for him there. But how the dang does he stand an inch shorter than Carrey, comletely outside movieland, is Jim in on some conspiracy? how about the pic with the car driver...

those sandle pics with paltrow do show that he's not as tall as he usually appears, but 5'7 - 5'8 is a joke.
Eddd said on 12/Jan/06
In the picture, Gywneth was wearing platform sandles with a few inches, plus she's a tall gal to begin with.

Any shoe with more than 2" lift is completely ridiculous. The man cant be THAT short and fooling the rest of the world.
JUSTMATT said on 12/Jan/06
In my opinion the biggest lift you can hide in shoes is of 4 cm or 1,5 inches because in other case the shoes appear suspicious. So assuming that maybe Pitt uses lifts he can add a max of 6-7cm to his height, that's why even if he is only 5.11 he can appear 6.1 with shoes on
d said on 12/Jan/06
how does a 5'7 or 5'8 guy end up looking over 6 feet without looking like he's on stilts, steve? Where are those shots with him looking about an inch shorter than the nearly 6'2" jim carrey? How would the guy walk around with 5" platform shoes and not look ridiculous. I just can't see realistically going much below 5'10" at the shortest for the Womb Raider
Monty said on 12/Jan/06
Brad is no way 5'7 or 5'8. Tom Cruise is that height and you can tell hes short even with lifts/elevator shoes.

But he needs some smelling salts and then maybe he'll realize 5'10 is the number.
Anonymous said on 11/Jan/06
well done rob, one baby step closer to his probably 5' 10.5" max barefoot height, but a step in the right direction. However, you'll probably be scratched from the Pitt/Jolie christmas card list now...hope it was worth it ;-)

5.11 is ok but not less and now have to change Clooney, Damon, Garcia, etc... heights! Good Luck! :-D Ahh just a question: what convinced you to change Pitt height?

[Editor Rob: those heights not get changed...yet ;) - the problem with Pitt is always what is in the shoes...hence why he looks 6ft]
Adam said on 11/Jan/06
Guys, Brad Pitt is not tall, but he's not short. Put him 2.5 inch heels, which some shoes already have, and he's 6'1 to 6'2. That's not short.
d said on 11/Jan/06
"Woops, there goes the 1/4 inch!"

Eddd said on 10/Jan/06
in responds to d: yes, Paltrow did wear alot of heels in the movie, but there were a few scenes where she did not, and still had at least 2 inches over Black.

I did used to think Pitt was tall, he did look tall. But pictures with him without lift shoes convinced me otherwise. I agree he's 5'11.
Adam said on 10/Jan/06
Someone else is claiming to be me, "Adam", and yes those were stupid comments Adam. I've met Tom Cruise, and he was the same height as my girlfriend at the time. He's five seven. In Interview with the Vampire, he wore three inch lifts and was still slightly shorter than Brad. Brad wore normal one inch shoes in that film, and he was close to five eleven to six feet. Brad is between five ten to five eleven.

Tom cruise is one guy who definately looks the 5'7" people give him.

i think that brad pitt is at least a little over 6 feet tall in barefeet. In pictures of him with tom cruise (who is "at least 5'10") brad towers over him. there's no way brad can be anywhere's near being only average height or even just slightly above. He HAS to be a good 6'1(without shoes) at the very least-he's always the tallest person on camera whenever I see him on TV or in movies are you saying that all of his costars and friends are midgets??
Eddd said on 9/Jan/06
I remember in the movie Shallow Hal. Paltrow was much taller than Jack Black. If Paltrow is not more than 5'6. What does that make Black? No more than 5'0?

[Editor Rob: jack black is growing...he's now saying he's '5ft 7'. Actually I can maybe buy near 5ft 6.5, in the morning]
Anonymous said on 9/Jan/06
No one ever believes this stuff, but I really have seen Paltrow several times in NYC and she is undoubtedly (in flipflops outside Equinox gym) not over 5'7". These shots of Pitt are very telling to me that he cannot excede 5'10".
Anonymous said on 8/Jan/06
Rob, the examples you've provided prove what we already knew, he looks at least 5' 11" in any of his various "custom boots". However, they still do not explain why he looks 5'9" to 5'10" max in sandles. Paltrow and pitt are walking together at the same pace with about the same length legs. Sorry, guys but "stride" isn't the reason they look the same height in those sandle pics. People's height doesn't flextuate that much while casually strolling down the sidewalk together as pitt and paltrow are doing. If you don't believe me, look again at this pic of paltrow and chris martin:
Martin is in stride, but as a legit 5' 11", he still looks indisputably taller then paltrow. Pitt did not. But I know you guys have thousands of pics of him in magic shoes that you'll use to dispute the closest thing we have to "real evidence" (the two sandle pics with paltrow). So I'm done wasting my breath.

i know its a weird angle, but he appears to have a steeper slope across his shoulders than she has. Also, i can't tilt my head to the side nearly that much while keeping my neck and body vertical But again, its a tough pic to tell much.

@Rob: The 2 examples are just 1 :D.

Brad's weight: So... Christian Bale said he weighed 121lbs in July 2004, he went up to 180 when the screen tests began in September and then to 220. That's what he said in an interview. That can be found here: . It's under Videos and Batman... It's from Germany, Berlin.

Crooked posture in the kiss pic?? he's standing straight as a board, he's just tilting his head so their noses don't smash together when their kissing. That pic is at an odd angle and it's hard to really tell the difference in their height. However, I think the sandle shots really prove there is no more than an inch difference in their height and it could go either way! It's tempting to assume pitt's stride is why they appear the same height. But look at the second pic of them. In that one, it's obvious they are in a similar stride if not practically standing still. They look very annoyed at the photographer, paltrow lowers her head to help pitt look taller, but notice their shoulders are at the same level as the first shot. Pitt looks furious about finally being photographed without any magic shoes. This is as rare as a photo of KISS without make-up in the 70s!! The more you study both of these pics, the more obvious it becomes that they are practically the exact same height. See for yourself:
Now look at Paltrow with 5'9" to 5'10" Liv Tyler:
Now check her out with her current man Chris Martin of Coldplay who is listsed at 5'11":
She's an inch shorter than Tyler and a good 2 - 3 inches shorter than Martin. This undoubtably puts her in the 5'8" to 5'9" range. So where does that leave mr. pitt?? After studying these pics, the thought of pitt as 5'11"+ and ever weighing over 200 lbs is about as believable as the easter bunny!!

[Editor Rob: I don't post many 'movement' type pics because one person could be mid-stride, other full stride and this creates differences...

also road camber can de-emphasise or increase height differences - example 1 and example 2.

Maybe I should finally redeem brad of his treasured 1/4 inch and put him to exactly what he wrote on the audition form 15 years ago...]

JUSTMATT said on 7/Jan/06
In my opinion Pitt is between 5.10 and 5.11, more 5.11 than 5.10. In the barefoot photo he is 2 inches taller than Paltrow so if she is 5.8 Pitt is 5.10, if she is 5.9 Pitt is 5.11. That's easy!

anonymous, u just sais IT! Rob, he gotcha!

[Editor Rob: Pitt won't ever go above the 181, the only question is if he can go down ;) He's held 181 for a long time now and I've not really bothered with this guy for a while...maybe the 1/4 inch will dissapear sometime this year. Keep an eye out!

Since those old photos of pitt/paltrow are off the bottom I'll add them back again pitt paltrow in sandals and the barefoot picture.]

Hey Rob- you're basing pitt's height on the pics with the racing driver who has a legitimate height proven by his profession and not inflated by some hollywood agent, That part is fair enough, so using that we can know with confidence and certainty how tall pitt is standing next to him. What we obviously don't know is what is probably in his shoes. I think it's pretty well established by now that he is an honorary member of the custom shoe fairy. So without knowing how much boost he's REALLY getting from those shoes. You're just guessing like everyone else. Why not base his height on the shot with Paltrow in sandles. The ONE shot we know with certainty how much boost he's getting from shoes because we can see his feet in sandles!! If you were really interested in stating his TRUE height, you would use that . Unless, Paltrow is 5' 10.5" (highly doubtful), there's no way pitt is 5' 11.25". I think pitt has charmed you somehow. What did he do? Send an autographed pic for the Mrs. or what. C'mon come clean, what's in it for you to base his height on an unknown to justify keeping it inflated.

[Editor Rob: yes, the 181cm is really his max height assuming his footwear was normal...]

''After being cast, 5 months later, having to lose most of his body fat he gained before the auditions, he weighed a total of 210-220 pounds (95 to 100 kg) of mostly muscle mass.''


That says he weighed that much when cast and had to lose the extra fat like I said. 210 - 220lbs for Bale DURING Batman is crazy. He had a decent build, but he wasn't ''big'' ... which a ripped 210 - 220 @ 6'0'' very much is.
175cm16andgrowing said on 6/Jan/06
No, and I don't want to search one of them now. Wait, I'll give you a tip: ---> Christian Bale weight or Christian Bale height weight
and then you'll find articles about him. He said in an interview he was 210-220lbs in BB... good links are and . I hope that can help.

[Editor Rob: Bale says his normal weight is 185lbs]
Jason said on 6/Jan/06
Would you be able to provide a link where Bale says he was between 210 and 220 during filming of the movie? I've only ever read that he got up to that weight *in preparation* for filming. Big difference.
175cm16andgrowing said on 6/Jan/06
Bale said himself he was between 210 and 220 during Batman Begins. I believe him. As The Machinist and in quilibrium he could look a legit 6'2'' I think and what did he do? He said he's 6'. I trust in that what he says. He's honest with his height and weight. And Pitt does look nearly as heavy as Bale in Troy. I mean, Pitt looks nearly as heavy in Troy as Bale in BB. Though there's one pic of Bale from BB in that he looks kinda very heavy, a little fat to tell you the truth but he didn't stop training so he was ripped again. In my opinion - seeing Bale as Batman and 210-220lbs and 6'- I think the Rock's a liar. Michaels looks a little heavier than Bale in BB. I guess it's because Shawn's 5'11'' and Chris is 6'. Will Smith weighed 210lbs when filming I, ROBOT and he said himself he's 6'1'' so why not believe Pitt?
Jason said on 6/Jan/06
Bale might have bulked up to 210 or so for Batman, but he wasn't anywhere near that heavy in the film. He would have cut down (dropped all the extra fat he was carrying from bulking up) prior to filming. He was pretty ripped in the movie.
175cm16andgrowing said on 6/Jan/06
Adter looking at him... you could be right. At first I didn't want to believe that HBK's so heavy but then I did and now...
What I don't get is that some people believe BEn McKenzie from THE OC is "5'7'' and 170lbs" where the guy has skinny legs. But for Brad... he has also skinny legs. But that can change. Christian Bale told the truth when he said he lost more than 60lbs for THE MACHINIST and then got up to 210-220for BATMAN BEGINS. In a new movie that's released in 2006 somewhen he plays somewhen that's rumoured to be just 10lbs away from THE MACHINIST. Recent family pics proove he has eaten again and now his legs aren't skinny anymore... the same could happen to Brad :D.

Let's say Cruise is 5'7''... he sometimes looks very heavy... 180lbs sometimes and sometimes 150 I guess.

Pitt looks so heavy... I dunno why. There was an article about Ocean's Eleven or Ocean's Twelve that said something like "The Rat Pack? The Fat Pack" because all actors were too heavy I think... Matt Damon 5'11''187/ Brad Pitt 6' 203''/ Clooney 5'11'' 210 (?)
Jason said on 6/Jan/06
About HBK's weight - the Rock said HBK was 5'11'' 195lbs in his 2000 autobiography. Tazz said HBK was only 195lbs in an interview when he was discusssing small heavyweight champions. Considering he was billed as 227lbs when he was champ in the 90s, his real weight was most likely right about 197lbs.
Jason said on 6/Jan/06
They never give real weights, at Wrestlemania or any other show. If Edge is 240, let alone 250, I'll eat the bumper bar off a car. Just because a wrestler says they're a certain weight doesn't mean it's true...!

203lbs for Brad is just laughable. When I was 203lbs (at 6'1''), I had a large upper body and my thighs were almost 27 inches in circumference and I had 42 inch hips. I'm very large-framed. You mean to say a 5'10 1/2'', small-framed guy who's legs are so skinny they had to use a body double for them in Troy weighed the same? There's just no way on Earth. If you'd ever weighed that yourself you'd agree and realize what a joke 203lbs for him is. I don't know why they listed him as that. Why did they list Tom Cruise as 203lbs? Just to help give them a more macho image I'd guess...
d said on 5/Jan/06
"Why should HE lie about his weight?"

maybe he thought that if he told the truth, nobody would believe that a "6'+" guy with all that muscle could weigh any less.

Still, even if he is under 5'10, that weight is doable for his muscle mass. Could have easily weighed himself wearing shoes and full clothes too. Just like people like calltheir height with shoes on. This is assuming he even actually claimed this at all.
Cobra said on 5/Jan/06
Brad Pitt looked heavy?
This guy for sure don`t weigh over 200 pounds.
And he also don`t look that muscular like when he is on the Troy cover, right?
175cm16andgrowing said on 5/Jan/06
People think that at Wrstlemania they give their real weights at least. Edge is far over 242 now, he's 250. Why? He's said that himself. Randy Orton described himself as 240lbs. Shawn Michaels, 5'11'', 195lbs... yes, could be but whatever... then I'd like to know Josh Matthew's real weight. He's described as 5'9'' (or 5'8'') and 143 (or 145)lbs. Whre is shawn Michaels' weight documented?

And Pitt looked heavy, very heavy and after that he also looked heavy... man, he's heavy! Somewhere Vin Diesel is described as 170-180lbs and 6'2''... we all know he's far under 6' and more than 200lbs (200lbs, more or less, is listed on some fansites I think, but they list him as 6'2'' which is wrong. We can totally see he's like 200lbs and 5'10'' or 5'11'' or 6'. So... now we have Brad Pitt... we see him in hisearly days and now we know James Marsters (BtVS, Angel the Series, Smallville) is around 5'10'' (listed as 5'9.5'' here) and 150lbs - he said that himself when he was very skinny... but muscle, kinda, I think around season 6. Now you think of Spike in Buffy Season 6 and 150lbs, standing 5'10'', then you think of Brad Pitt, standing 5'11'' and 159lbs and you see... correct!... in his early days. And then you see him in Troy and read 203lbs and it's correct. Brad's not a midget, he's tall guys. Why should HE lie about his weight?
Anonymous said on 5/Jan/06
5'9". This is silly, again. He is short, if 5'9" is really that short, and totally hot. Sites like this should be more ready to record actualities. Hollywood inflates. It is good marketing. No one wants to hear the truth about a hero and Hollywood agents know that. It isn't "fantstical" enough that Pitt is below ave. height and Jolie is the average american woman's height, 5'4". Would you tell your real height if you were famous? No way. You would look at the person who is shorter than you and lies about being taller and tack on enough inches to yourself to balance it out. I once saw Gwyneth Paltrow listed at 5'11". She rented an apt in NY from my family years ago and I saw her in the mail room all the time. She is probably closer to 5'7" than 5'8" and a real person. 5'11" was insane, 5'9" is insane. It's just weird. Brad was not that much taller. (Although she was dating L. Wilson at the time, who is truly 5'10" tops). Okay. Cool site though.
Jason said on 5/Jan/06
Edge 242?! Christian 225?!?! lool. Actually, it's documented HBK was only around 195lbs when he was WWE champ in the 90s. He was about 210 in the early 90s. Wrestling weights are as lied about as heights, mate. They routinely add 20 - 30lbs to their weights ... sometimes as much as 50 - 100lbs in the cases of giant wrestlers (i.e Big Show, Viscera, Kevin Nash, Taker). Tom Cruise is listed as 203lbs in some places, too ... but, that doesn't mean it's true. ;)
Cobra said on 5/Jan/06
5ft11max, maybe 5f10,5. Rob, what I don`t understand, is your 0,25 inch.
Is there a reason? ;)
He weighs never near than 203 pounds.
80 kg or something like that but that`s it. Or maybe lower.

[Editor Rob: well, I'm always thinking more in centimetre terms, so a lot of 3/4 and 1/2 type listings are on the site.]
d said on 5/Jan/06
thetruth, when i posted that much discussed first pic you just posted, i left out clooney comments because he is obviously in a longer stride and down slope. I'd have to see that entire walking scene again to be sure, but i recall all three appearing very close in height.

there is that stage pic, however, along with garcia, which has damon taller than clooney, with obvious clunkier shoes. but then there is that sock feet boat picture with damon and clooney looking about the same. With brad in shoes looking only a bit taller.

The part about Matt growing and shinking compared to brad in the same movie seems odd. would damon be wearing 2 inch lifts in one full body length scene then normal shoes in another? makes me think that the camera angles play tricks. for example mr.P. 2.5 inches taller than clooney now? no, look at the shoulder heights, within an inch. the camera looks to be around chest/shoulder height, so that makes brad look way taller for being in front. the camera in this scene isn't even waist height, which makes pitt, being in the forground, look much taller. Notice pitt, here, is wearing the shoes that i pointed out in my last post-> 1.5" tops imo.
175cm16andgrowing said on 5/Jan/06
Wait... Wrestlemania, real weights given: Shawn Michaels : 227 (rumoured between 5'10'' and 6')
Christian: 225 (6'1'')
Edge: 242 (6'4'')
Chris Jericho: 227 (rumoured as 5'9'')

So please, 5'11'' and 203 looks about correct. Why should he make him heavier?
Jason said on 5/Jan/06
Dude, I remember weighing 92kg (at 6'1'' to boot) and lemme tell you, there was no way Brad Pitt weighed anywhere-friggin-near that in Troy or any other movie. Brad's only about 5'10 1/2'', had just a decent upper body - like a not too big fitness model - and sticks for legs. They had to use a body double for his legs in Troy. So, obviously he's not gonna have weighed that much. The leaner you are (which Brad is in his movies) at any given weight, BTW, the heavier you *appear*...

Matt Damon's probably wearing the biggest heel of all, since he always looks short.

@175cm16andgrowing: Did you measure him in his early days? Of course not, you're going by what he himself stated his height was. But I got news for you, even the most naive wanna-be actors who move to hollywood (as pitt did) know yhey have to sell themself. If you are a male under the magical 6 foot mark, you are going to give your height in normal shoes and round up to the nearest inch (even on your first resume). Acting resumes and the little personal info sections guys like pitt filled out for "teen" and "people" type magazines in his early days aren't exactly medical records bro. That 5' 11" was his height in normal shoes. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he didn't arrive in hollywood with his elevators on. Those came later when he needed to look 6' to 6' 1" as he does these days. If Pitt was really 5' 11.25" barefoot, he would have been over 6' foot in a pair of house slippers!! If he was really less than an inch shy of 6" foot, do you really think he would have rounded down??? Come on! Pitt's no idiot, he would have never got where he is today if he didn't know how to play the game and utilize every advantage to get ahead. Rounding up your height is acting resume 101 dude. Even the horrible actors who get no where in hollywood know that much. You're obviously a big fan of pitt's and are finding it hard to accept that everything hollywood media has spoon fed you isn't true and pitt really isn't that tall. But hey you're only 16, trust me there will be bigger disappointments in your life, so don't go ripping your pitt posters off the wall just yet. In fact, you should have even more respect for him for the fact he has pulled off becoming the biggest male sex symbol on the planet at 5' 10" max...pretty f-ing impressive in my book.
175cm16andgrowing said on 4/Jan/06
@Anonymous: People I know say he's 5'11'' or 180cm. And just so you know, someone posted the heights and weights of wrestlers back in 1995 or 1996 in here somewhere. hawn Michaels was 5'10 or 5'11'' and 115kg... I think the guy made an error and Michaels was 105kg but that is true. Look at Pitt, 5'11'', 92kg or so... imaginable. He was huge as Achilles in Troy and perhaps even heavier. And don't come with Brad's 5'9'' and 70.5kg... no... he was 5'11'', 72kg in his early days and when he's more skinny like now, I'd give him 150lbs or less sometimes. But look at his full face after he got a hair-cut, after Troy. 92kg? Seems about right. He's 5'11'', perhaps 5'10.5'' but most likely 5'11.25'' exactly, like Rob has him here.
d said on 4/Jan/06
from one inch on damon? to 3 inches.. ..both from ocean's 12.

do i see normal shoes... ..or does his ankle in this shot look a bit high ..i'd give that shoe about 1.5" maybe

there are a lotta shots with him in those shoes, but most of the pics are useless. like who is this guy..
He towers over mrs jones in heels tho, however tall she is.

This man is clearly 5'11" in regular shoes. In lifts, I don't know. But, he is obviously 5'10-5'10.5" at the very most barefoot.

dmeyer said on 4/Jan/06
that pics with freeman and also a scene in seven when they in a morgue prove that brad cant be over 5'11.5" 6' on a good day he must be wearing lifts in movies like ocean 11 and 12 because he looks a solid 3 " taller than matt damon and a good 3 cm over clooney pitt does apear as a 6'1" sometimes but of course with lifts on it is funny because a friend of my was a bodygaurd for brad and told me brad was average
Viper652 said on 4/Jan/06
I could beleive Brad at 5-9 more so then 5-11.
Anonymous said on 3/Jan/06
Look at this pic of Pitt with Morgan Freeman. If Freeman was standing up straight, he would have a solid 3 - 4 inches on Pitt. I seriously doubt Freeman wears big heels or lifts like Pitt, so you can bet Pitt is getting at least an extra 1 - 2 inches of height from his shoes compared to Freeman's. Freeman is a legit 6' 2.5". This means Pitt is 4 - 6 inches shorter than Freeman if both were barefoot. Which means Pitt's height must be somewhere between 5' 8.5" and 5' 10.5". Most likely in the middle: 5' 9.5"

Hey 175cm16andgrowing, I'm glad everyone at your german high school are tall. But I don't really know what the hell thst has to do with Pitt's height. Guess what kid, Germany is a long way from Hollywood. I'm afraid the movies and magazines you and your buddies have "seen Pitt" in are not sufficient proof of Pitt "being" tall. They only prove he can "look" tall. Also, don't be so naive and believe everything you read in magazines, Pitt has never weighed anywhere near 203 lbs. His weight fluctuates between 155 and 175 (for his bulkier roles like Achillies in Troy). With his small to medium frame and average height, he would look like either a major fat ass or a professional body builder at 200 lbs. Obviously he looks like neither.
Shred Guy said on 3/Jan/06
I don't see any evidence suggesting he is only 5'9"! That's just....well....crazy. At a minimum he's 5'10 (which is unlikely) and at a max he's 6' (which is also very unlikely).

Conclusion? Rob's got his height spot on - i.e, 5'11! No pictures or films I've seen suggest otherwise.
d said on 3/Jan/06
""Look at him and Angelina or him and Jennifer... man, he's tall. He is 5'11'' because if he would be 5'9'' Clooney would be 5'7''? And Matt Damon 5'6''? Man, you'Re kidding, he is 5'11''.""

dude, your arguments all seem to exclude the possibility that he may be wearing lifts in these pictures.

And who says they didn't lie about his height in troy times. I'm about 5'9.5 and not as muscular as Brad was in that flick (according to my cousin ha), and i'm a bit over 180lbs. Add another 10 lbs to legs and some troy armour, and i'm there haha.

As i've said before, BP appeared a fair bit shorter in some older movies ("The dark Side of the sun" shocked me,0,0); add in those high top dress, and basketball shoes he always seems to wear, and i think we have a case.
175cm16andgrowing said on 3/Jan/06
Look at him and Angelina or him and Jennifer... man, he's tall. He is 5'11'' because if he would be 5'9'' Clooney would be 5'7''? And Matt Damon 5'6''? Man, you'Re kidding, he is 5'11''. He was listed as 5'11'' back then, so he is 5'11''. HE can't have shrunk hence he's never been fat, he's old though. But he has great looks. And don't forget there are actors and people that say they are small but they're tall. Like I said, a friend of ine (good posture...) is 6' if not taller but says he's 5'10''. Why? Because he hasn't measured him in a year and because he's a sportive guy and doesn't weigh that much so he makes himself smaller and he dosn't wear magical shoes. We all know he's taller :D. And here in Germany... where people are tall :D. In my class (11th grade) the smallest girl is 5'4'' or 5'5''. The tallest guy (18 or somewhat) is 6'7''... one of my classmates is 6'6'' (17)... I'm 5'9'', one of the smallest (16). People have seen Brad Pitt and you know what they say? He's tall! Some people don't care how tall they are (a friend of mine hasn't measured him in years) and some do (like me) and a few of the somes who do have seen him. 5'11'' Pitt. Look at his upper-body! He has to be 5'11''. Rob is right.
175cm16andgrowing said on 3/Jan/06
Come on... they didn't lie about his weight in Troja and if he was 5'9'' he would've been way too heavy to look that lean. Rob is right. Perhaps he's just 5'11'' but no way that he's 5'9''. Dream on.
Anonymous said on 3/Jan/06
In fairness, David Duchovny is wearing cowboy boots in Kalifirnia himself. But Pitt's huge work boots have as much heel as cowboy boots it's fairly safe to assume he has lifts inside them as well. This all adds up to more proof that 5' 10" barefoot may still be a little generous and 5' 11" to 6' foot is just dumb. Is it really that hard to belive that Hollywood could take someone who is a solid 5' 9" with "perfect" features and proportions and sell him as this 6' foot hunk of a man. They couldn't really pull it off if he wasn't at least a solid 5' 9" barefoot and built so lean with lanky proportions for his size. The photos of him and 5' 9" MAX Gweneth Paltrow (both in sandles) don't lie. The cat's out of the bag. At this point, it's pretty obvious to everyone (except Rob) that Pitt is in the 5' 9" to 5' 9.5" range barefoot.

raju, maybe in that movie kalifornia he wasnt wearing lifts. he cant be 5-9...come on thats ridiculous
Anonymous said on 3/Jan/06
Please look at two of the only pics of Pitt out of lifts. Here he is wearing sandles with Paltrow:
Although Rob has Paltrow at 5' 9.25". Actual sightings have her at 5' 7" to 5' 8".
And although they are both in stride, it's obvious they're about the same height. Pitt
could be no more than one inch taller than Paltrow, if that. Yet notice in his lifts
he magically becomes about 3-4 inches taller than Paltrow and resembles the lanky
Pitt we are used to seeing in films and public appearences:
I think this concludes that Pitt is not short, but is average height at 5' 9" to 5" 10" max.
But he is also the master at appearing 3 inches taller than his actual height.

Since when is Bloom just 5'9''? It's hard to believe, I can't believe it because I sometimes look Tiny here in Germany, standing 5'9'' but I'm just 16, not grown-up, not 25.
Brad is at least 5'10'' or 5'11''. He's said himself he's 5'11'' in the 1980s and that he "weigh(s) 159lbs". So... should have been correct back then. And Bloom is as tall as Pitt is. Saying Bloom is 5'9'' adn Pitt is 5'8'' is bs.

Brad Pitt is by no means a short guy. He is small framed, but he is rather lanky and of above average height. He is at least five ten.

Mr Pitt is FOR SURE no less than 5.10 ok, no less!! In my opinion he is exactly 5.11 ok?

Hey "He's very tiny..."

that quote from George Clooney is sarcasm. The truth is Brad is taller than George and Matt Damon, and the practical joke may be directed towards Brad's affinity for wearing high heeled shoes to make him even taller than the rest of the Ocean's cast. With his lean frame and good posture, and long neck, the aid of higher heeled shoes makes him taller than the rest of the cast.

Brad Pitt is not five seven. Watch Interview with the Vampire and you'll see.
The man is five ten to five eleven. With shoes on, he's a natural six footer. With lifts on, he's easily six one to six two.

Come on guys. He's not Tom Cruise's height.
MD said on 27/Dec/05
Yeah, the 5'7" rumor/theory is just ridiculous.

Still, I don't see why he is STILL listed at over 5'11" on here. At the very, very most after going over this again, and again, and again, he's no more than 5'10.5"

Yes. Brad is between 5'10'' and 5'11''. But he looked so small in behind the scenes of Fight Club. Her looked like 5'8''. It's so strange. He is very fit and that makes him look taller. When I studied filmhistory, a guy in my class said Pitt is 176 cm...he was 100 procent sure of that. I

Brad will never be downgraded...i think some of the celebrities on the site will always be held at a minimum height and i guess brad's is 5'11.25...

agree wit thetruth ..He ain't short, just not 6'0...
Adam said on 27/Dec/05
Brad cannot be 5'7" because Tom Cruise wore two to three inch lifts in interview with the vampire. He's 5'10-5'11.

Hey Brad's short, I agree that Brad ain't as tall as advertised, but he ain't 5'7. Come on now, that's just ridiculous. I'm about 5'7.5-5'8 and I don't tower over most people and I wear pretty good sized heels, no lifts though. Here's my theory. He's 5'9.5-5'10 and he wants to appear to be 6'0. So he wears some chunky shoes to look it. You'll almost never catch a picture with him in sandals, even on the freaking beach. 5'10, I'm standing by it. He ain't short, just not 6'0.
Seriously if he were 5'8 or less, he would have to wear one hell of a heel and I've worn 3 inch heels before and I was off balance and I still wasn't looking as tall as him.

I agree Monty. He is in the 5-10 range, and is over 6-1 in his lifts. Clooney could be referring to that.

Patrick, thats you grew that much after 19. I turned 21 2 1/2 months ago and I have grown almost an inch...Im hoping I can pull off another inch or 2 before i stop.
Monty said on 26/Dec/05
Theres no way Brad is shorter then 5'10-5'9.5(the shortest i can see him at and its really unrealistic) and i am willing to bet money on that. He wrote down 5'11 for the audition. Its hard to pull off 3 inches for one thing, he would have to wear 2.5 inch lift and if he were to be take of his shoe if would have been akward to say the least.

Brad's short said on 25/Dec/05
I think he's 5'7". Why?

1. He put 5'10" on an audition sheet. If he was taller would he really list himself as a shorter height? No-just the opposite. He most likely added 3 inches to his height (if he really is 5'7") After all it is pretty common knowledge that most celebs add AT LEAST 4 inches to their height, so I'm being generous with Brad.

2. Looking at the two conficting quotes from Clooney I think that the short one seems more believable. I bet you anything that Pitt owed Clooney $, beer, or at least a very big "Thank You" for claiming he was 6'1.

It is easier to make a short actor look tall than you think; lets take a look at just a few of the factors that can make Brad (at 5'7" max) be known as a six footer.

1. His reputation. Brad is known as being a macho guy and attracting all the ladies. People automatically associate tallness with this showing of masculinity.

2. His looks. No matter how tall he is BRAD IS SEXY AS HELL!! He is probably the best looking guy I have ever seen and I enjoy looking at pics of him even though I'm a straight guy. People see Brad's perfect face, his girlfriends and wives, the hair, the roles he played, the clothes he wore everything about him is perfect (except his height), so people assume that his height is ideal, too. It just goes along with the package that people want Pitt to be.

3.His build. Unlike Tom Cruise, Brad has been able to fool people partially from his build. (Cruise is about 5'6). Why? Because Tom is stumpier and stockier, with shorter limbs in proportion to his body-something you'd expect from a short man. Brad, on the other hand, is relatively thin and lanky, which automatically adds to people's perception of his height.

4. Publicity. The people working for Pitt have done a great job of giving the illusion that Pitt is tall. All magazines report him at least 6' and since most people look at magazines, but have never actually met him, they assume what they read is true (fools).

5. His posture and the way he carries himself. Brad has excellent posture, standing up straight and walking "tall". He also displays confidence in himself and a general feeling that he is powerful and strong. Even people that really have met him have claimed he is tall, and they aren't lying-at least not intentionally!! Brad Pitt is Brad Pitt, one of biggest and best looking stars of all time and just from seeing his face and meeting him, most people are so taken back by being in the same room as him, that they don't even notice his height, or they "feel" as though he is much taller because of the strong amount of energy he gives off. Most people that have met him and remember him as a big guy have been almost hypnotized by his prescence and weren't able to recall correctly.

6. Now I know you saw this one coming. Lifts. Brad's entire career and reputation basically depends on the heels of his shoes. Sounds funny, but it's pretty much true. If Brad never wore lifts or displayed even only half of the aobove traits and qualities, he wouldn't be 10% of the star he is today. No kidding. Brad is ALWAYS wearing significant lifts in movies and public appearances; his feet have most likely molded to them. And for those people that say he looks tall without lifts, you're absolutely right-because BRAD IS STANDING ON A FRICKIN' BOX. Just look at the Clooney quote.

Now if you read all this and think that I am in denial or crazy, that's just fine. As a matter of fact, I'd like for you to think that, because being a fan of Brad's I wish the highest of his sucess. So it's better off thinking or believing he isn't short, in fact I tell people he is over six foot when it comes up in conversation and they claim he's little. But just keep in mind if you think Brad is even close to average height or above, you're being fooled, big time.

Good night.

"He's very tiny.....", you should kill yourself for being stupid enough to repeat a rumor that Brad Pitt is anywhere near 5'4. Are you retarded?

I dont know, I cant believe Brad Pitt is around 5'4. You can tell by looking at him that hes bigger than that. No camera tricks could ever make him go from 5'4 to 6'. I think at very least he is 5'9.5 and at the most he is what Rob has given him on this site. Personally I tend to think mostly that he is anywhere between 5'10-5'10.5
He's very tiny..... said on 24/Dec/05
.....either that or George Clooney has been smoking something that hasn't been discovered yet.......

Let's take a look at this "George Clooney says in the above quote: "He's tall. He's like 6-1. It's irritating."

BUT......take a look at this excerpt from another article(the link will be posted below):
At the onset of filming the movie, which also stars Julia Roberts, Don Cheadle, Andy Garcia, Matt Damon, Carl Reiner, Elliot Gould, Bernie Mac, Casey Affleck and several others, everyone on the set knew that Clooney had a reputation as a practical joker.

"Who me?" Clooney deadpanned when asked that very subject. "Well one of our favorite pranks that Matt Damon and I would do was to Brad, you know, Brad is about a foot shorter than the rest of us. So they had these boxes that he would have to stand on. We would bring very small boxes in and he would come up to here," motioning to his chin, "and he would get very angry."

Here's the link in case you don't believe me:

Is this the same Brad Pitt and George Clooney? Ya know the Thelma and Louise guy and the dude from ER?

I have heard many reports of Brad being a "shrimp" in person, including from people that I know and have actually met him. My 5'4"(that's not a typo) very reliable adult friend (who has no reason to lie and wouldn't make it up) said she was "eye to eye" with Pitt when she worked with him.

Also several articles online actually stated that Pitt was "famous for being very small"

Now I am only repeating what I have heard verbatim from first hand accounts and official press releases; don't start to attack me telling me that I'm crazy and insane-I honestly can't decide whether Pitt is a six-footer or a tiny little dude. It all seems very bizarre with all the evidence that backs up both sides of the story.

What I WILL say is that I think either a lot of people hate Brad and decided to make up a "rumor"(but most people that claim he's short don't seem to have any reason to do so)


Hollywood, Brad Pitt and his agents have made suckers out of all of us and fooled the general public. I have never met Brad, but I do know how to do research and keep an open mind and consider the possiblities.

I also read that the first thing that celebrities complain about on talk shows is how people will say when they meet them "I didn't expect you to be so short-I thought you'd be taller"

So while there's a good chance that he's strapping, it seems just as likely that he's a pipsqueak. :)
I just can't decide which one.

hey Jackie,

they're standing on different levels. Notice how tall Matt Damon looks.
Brad Pitt is 5'10 to 5'11. End of story. No more mysteries.
d said on 22/Dec/05
he looks shorter than leno in that pic below, to me. He's more heads up to have his eyes higher, but leno's shoulders appear a good bit higher. Any better pics of the two?
Chris said on 22/Dec/05
Brad is standing one step down on that picture!
Jackie said on 22/Dec/05
This picture makes me believe Brad is only about 5'9-9.5".
How could he be 5'11" or taller if he's like the shortest in the photo and the average man is 5'9", which would mean if he was 5'11" then the other people in the photo would be around 6'. Tis does not seem likely.

[Editor Rob: Cheadle/Caan etc are on a higher part...unless Scott Caan has had a dramatic 7 inch growth spurt ;)]
DudeX said on 21/Dec/05
Where did you get the fact that Leno is 6feet? He is 5'10 at best.

Femur is the tallest bone in the human body, and sorry I meant Tibia lol, and his tibia is as tall as his femur, which is impossible.
DudeX said on 20/Dec/05
Brad pitt is 5'10

Look at this pic with Jay Leno :

he looks the same height.

But then again... look at his Dodgy Shoes


His Femur is as tall as his knees. That thing is impossible.

no heights are solid when we don't know what kind of funny business is going on with shoes. You can put "solid" maximums on them, tho, when people like mr. R goes and stands beside some of these people.

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.

Other vital statistics like weight, shoe or bra size measurements have been sourced from newspapers, books, resumes or social media.
