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 (?)

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.

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...

"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.

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?

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 http://www.bradpittfan.com/pics/moce040a.jpg
..is 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.
http://www.bradpittfan.com/pics/moce034a.jpg 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.

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*...
thetruth said on 4/Jan/06
Matt Damon's probably wearing the biggest heel of all, since he always looks short.
Matt Damon towering over Clooney:
More proof positive the stars wear high heels.
Brad looking tall:
Brad looking short:
Then being shorter than him?

@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.

@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.

from one inch on damon? http://www.bradpittfan.com/pics/moce027a.jpg to 3 inches.. http://www.bradpittfan.com/pics/moce034a.jpg ..both from ocean's 12.
do i see normal shoes... http://www.bradpittfan.com/pics/moce009a.jpg ..or does his ankle in this shot look a bit high http://www.bradpittfan.com/pics/moce009d.jpg ..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..http://www.bradpittfan.com/pics/moce007f.jpg
He towers over mrs jones in heels tho, however tall she is.
MD said on 4/Jan/06
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.

Maybe you GLEEN has a photo with Brad Pitt, has you?
Jason said on 4/Jan/06
I think 5'10 1/2'' for Brad is right. I don't think Freeman is actually any taller than like 6'1 1/2''.
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 do...plus 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.
the real raw truth said on 3/Jan/06
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.
the real raw truth said on 3/Jan/06

I'd say 5'11 is about right. How anyone can say 5'7 is beyond me, considering how much he towers over Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts. 5'7 is wishful thinking from jealous people.

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.

This totally ruins the credibility of those knowing that he needs to be downgraded, but not by much. He is obviously no shorter then 5'9.5", but definitely no more than 5'10.5".

OK stop!! But guys...are you stupid or what???? How someone of you can still say or write that Pitt is 5.7 or 5.8?!?!?!? Change your cocaine pusher!! It's simply impossible! Before talking have you seen the photos of him near driver Mark Webber that is 6.1??? Please don't write down stupid things if you don't know what we are talking about!! Mr Pitt is FOR SURE no less than 5.10 ok, no less!! In my opinion he is exactly 5.11 ok? Before saying he is 5.7 please look all his photos at www.gettyimages.com, at www.bradpittfan.com and at www.simplybrad.com and then if you say he is 5.7 you are blind or really stupid!
Adam said on 28/Dec/05
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.
Adam said on 28/Dec/05
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.

Yeah, the 5'7" rumor/theory is just ridiculous.

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.
Viper652 said on 26/Dec/05
I agree Monty. He is in the 5-10 range, and is over 6-1 in his lifts. Clooney could be referring to that.

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.

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.
Adam said on 22/Dec/05
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 : http://www.bradpittfan.com/pics/int01_015d.jpg
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.
d said on 20/Dec/05
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.
Viper652 said on 19/Dec/05
Its pretty easy for me. Clooney is around 5-9, and Brad always looks an inch taller then Clooney in pics, and especially the Ocean 11 and 12 movies. Which makes Brad a solid 5-10, possibly 5-10.5
Anonymous said on 19/Dec/05
MD and Kam, when was 5'9" considered "small" or "short"??? Shouldn't need to criticize other people (especially famous ones) to make yourselves feel better. That being said, I think he's 5'11" or less. He wrote it himself on some audition paperwork as had been discussed before. People don't downgrade their heights but upgrade them obviously. He's probably 5'10"ish would be most accurate. =)
JUSTMATT said on 19/Dec/05
Hi Marc, how tall was the entire wax sculpture of Pitt at Taussaud? Thanks
Marc said on 18/Dec/05
As being 5'10", I know its easy to play up your height by about 2 inches, so it's possible that Brad does so. I noiced when I stood next to his wax figure at madame taussaud's he appeared about the same height as me, but I wear flat skater sneakers and he was wearing dress shoes, so, assuming, he can add the two inches. Also, when I have bad posture, I shrink myself down to 5'8", so posture again plays a role in your height.
Anonymous said on 18/Dec/05
If Pitt was 5' 11.25" tall barefoot, he would look almost 6' 3" with his elevator shoes and great posture. If he was even 5' 11" barefoot, there would be no controversy about his height. Nobody would question him being 6 foot. But that's just not the case people.
Jamie said on 18/Dec/05
Im 5ft 9, ive seen Brad in New York, the guy is a good 5'10 maybe 5'10.5. An inch or two difference is barely noticeable.

Yeah, c'mon rob....you have gweneth paltrow at 5' 9.25" (even though there is ample proof she is no more than 5' 8". but assumming she is 5' 9", we've all seen the pics of her and pitt barefoot and in sandles together. he is no more than an inch taller than her(if that). this makes him a absolute max of 5' 10.5". which is far from short and probably still generous for him, but how can you not at least lower him to this....unless you're on the same payroll as the magzine and PR people who claim he's sooo tall...at least 6 foot.
thetruth said on 17/Dec/05
What will it take Rob to change your height rating?
Obviously Brad has a "locked in" 5'11 height.
Unless someone measures Brad with a stadiometer in the morning and night
in your presence, will you change it. Even then you would be hesitant.

i don't know about that scott guy in those two pics just below, but Pitt is obviously standing on lower ground than Damon and Clooney.
175cm16andgrowing said on 16/Dec/05
Well, I am 5'9'' but I'm still growing.
Believe me, I know a lot of people who are taller than me - and some who are not appear to be that because I'm normally slouching heavily.
One thing you know when there's a lie. Brad Pitt and 6'... yes, maybe but I guess he's 5'11''. But his weight 160lbs? NO. NO. NO. But then you have it the other turn around. When people say he is 5'9'' - which I think he's obviously not - and 203 lbs in Troja... I think he's honest about his weight nowadays but... people, when you think he's 5'9'' then you're so wrong.
End the debate said on 16/Dec/05
You've clearly always sided with Mr. Pitt being on the tall side and granted, he isn't short, just not 5'11.25. (No idea how you came up with that number)
But after looking at this picture with Duchovny hunched back,
how on earth are you going to continue to say he's that height?
They are standing right behind each other and the ground looks even enough.
Sure Duchovny is in front, but does that make that much of a difference?
If Pitt is 5'11 and change and Duchovny (who you say is a true 6'0) then wouldn't they be about the same height? I gotta hear your justification on this.

Brad Pitt is 5'9. Bottom line.
He never wears anything but high heeled shoes and check out this photo next to certified 6'0 Duchovny:
This was prior to Pitt being an A lister. If this film was made today, believe me they would look the same height, similar to Interview with the Vampire, how Pitt and Cruise almost look the same height.
Tom is 5'6 by the way.

Maybe he is 5'11+, maybe he's not, but he certainly appears to be at least that in most recent pictures and flicks. He really did look much shorter in some older stuff tho. Lifts aside, i don't know what some guy with a huge cash flow, that's dependant heavily upon his image, is willing, and capable of doing with his height.
dmeyer said on 14/Dec/05
rob i noticed that sometimes there is a huge diference of height between brad and jolie and sometimes only 3 to 4 " the guy gotta be wearing lifts sometimes
[Editor Rob: one thing to give brad, is that he really has good posture. Ps: about why your height is less, I really don't know why you lost a few mm. How to get it back...hmm, is it possible originally your measurements might have been a few mm off? It would be strange to lose a little bit in your 20's...]

noooo....brad pitt wearing lifts. get out of here! of course he's always in lifts, even his trainers (tennis shoes) are of the extreme high top nature....ideal for stashing large lifts. show me one pic of him without his high top dress shoes or boots on. he wears the extra long inseam on his pants to hide them, so all people usually see is a moderately high exterior heel.

i watched mr and mrs smith the other night. I know movies aren't a good way to judge height, but on the "cell phone bios", they had pitt listed at 6'1" and jolie at 5'7". I think both are inflated.
She wore heels the whole movie i think, and pitt looked at good 4 inches above her in most shots. But it did seem to vary depending on angle, etc.
Only in one deleted scene did they stand pitt up to V Vaughn. VV was slouching and pitt was walking by and looked to be up to VV's mouth or nose in height.

Rob I posted before about the mug shot pick of him on nov 14, 05...I know they may alter the mug shot so the actor looks taller.. Thats the thing. If they altered the mug shot to make him look taller, then he is shorter then 6ft. cause the hat just covers 6ft in the pic.

In my opinion in the photo with Edwards we have to consider firstly that Edwards is slouching and secondly that probably (but not for sure) Edwars wears motorbike shoes without heels and Pitt as at least 1 inch heels shoes so my personal opinion is that Pitt is 5.11 and no less than this!

Hey cendrin rovini, I think the average american height is 5'9", could be a bit taller, not sure if it's as small as 5'8". My Mum was shocked when I told her it was 5'9", she thought it was taller.
What's the average height in Germany? In America, the average height has remained the same for 50 years, pretty unique in this respect; some claim Americans are shrinking. Either way, the fast food diet has a lot to do with it.
In the 1800s Americans were BY FAR the tallest people on Earth, this lasted until about the 1920s/30s. In contrast the Dutch were pretty short back then, even by European standards, whereas now they are the tallest people in the world.
I went to Munich recently, people there seemed taller than other places, well there were a lot of people around 6'3" anyway, way more than usual. But then I went to a town in Bavaria where the people seemed short.

Wake up people, pitt is not in normal shoes next to weber or any of the pics that people try to use to argue he's at least 5'11". He is almost ALWAYS in cleverly disguised elevater shoes. Like Stalone, he's mastered all the tricks to standing 3 inches taller than he really is (lifts, military posture etc.). Since 99% of the pics you'll see of Stalone or Pitt are in this state, people find it hard to belive Stalone is struggling with 5'8" and Pitt is struggling with 5'10". Because they stand almost 5'11" and almost 6'1" in person. Go to bradpittfan.com. You'll see thousands of pics of him in blatant elevater shoes looking kinda tall. Then you'll see a small handful of shots of him in sandels or non-elevater shoes, where he looks virtually the same height as Gwenth Paltrow who is absolutely somewhere between 5'7" and 5'10" max.
Anonymous said on 14/Nov/05
Rob you know I'm not one who usually want to downgrade actors height but Pitt in my opinion is exactly 5.11. He himself wrote 5.11 in 1987 and I don't think he gained cms. We have also see photos of him near 184 Webber and they are same height but Webber is pratically barefoot and Pitt is in 4 cm heels so...no more than 5.11. Look also his photos with Paltrow who is no more than 175 cm max!!
MD said on 14/Nov/05
I don't think he is ever going to be downgraded...I don't see why listing him at average height would be such a problem.
[Editor Rob: there are no 'locked' heights. If someone prompts me enough to reconsider current heights as being innacurate, I'll have a closer look and upgrade/downgrade. Sometimes it might take a while though mind you!. $hit, who remembers the time I had brad 184cm ;)
Many times I do change my mind with the more pics and encounters I read on celebs.
Nowadays the site does represent one of many that I operate *for a living*, so I'm thinking I'll be operating it longer than I was intending...christ, when Pitt is 60 folk here will be saying 'hey he's lost a few cm, get him down to 5ft 6!']

In the movie "Sleepers" Brad Pitt stands next to Minnie Driver and he only about 1 inch taller than her. So whatecer she is I would add an inch and that's how tall he is. They both were wearing normal shoes that wouldn't make them any taller.

When Brad fought in Fight Club, and when Norton opens the door when Brad is f***ing the chick, he has no shoes and you can clearly say he is max 5'10.

Damon and Clooney seem to alternate for who is tallest, and somtimes they look the same. Pitt usually looks 1 inch taller. They always seem to obscure their shoes well with their pant legs. I'd laugh if they were all around the same height.

Someone in Reality said on 6/Nov/05
You're right, TJ. Brad is taller than Angelina, but probably not by much. In the publicity shots he seems to tower over her, but in candids, Brad tends to looks much shorter, though he definetely still has a couple inches on Jolie. I think that in the second photo, it looks as though Jolie is wearing flat heeled sandals-I could be wrong, but it looks to be a good indication of Brad's height.
d said on 5/Nov/05
well, "if" Bloom is 5'10.5" like this site suggests, that pic i posted (and most others from that event) would have Pitt at 6'1.5" barefoot. But there's no way he was 1" shorter than the 6'2.5 Bana, more like 3"+.
I believe the Bana height, but Bloom would have to be 5'9" tops or Pitt's wearing lifts (and bloom doesn't look a hair more). Bloom must be wearing normal shoes to be this much shorter than Pitt regardless.
If Pitt "was" wearing normal shoes, then he looks 5'11.5" - 6.0' barefoot, in that series. But i still think his knees look too tall.

well, i just read this entire thread and it full of comparing his height, wearing unknown footware to people of unconfirmed heights with usually with obscured footware. or some combination thereof.
I've always assumed brad pitt was about 6.0'. He always seems to appear about 1" taller than clooney in pics and films. I assumed clooney was 5'11" after he said he was on letterman once. he looked a couple shorter than 6'3" freeman, 1" shorter than carrey etc...
Then i saw this movie about a boy who wore a mask, rode a dirt bike, that looked to be shot on some european coastline. he he looked about 15 years old and i cannot believe that boy was over 5'8", 5'9" tops. "The dark side of the sun", shot in 1988, starring brad pitt ->25 years old.
I didn't realize there was a thing going on in hollywood with lift shoes. How come all the pics with Brad in shorts has him wearing high top converse shoes. show me some in tennis shoes, prove me wrong.
TJ said on 4/Nov/05
Someone in reality, those pics at the railings prove no such thing. You are talking about a pic where we can't see footwear. How do we know she isn't wearing four inche heels? How do we know the railings aren't mounted on concrete and she's stood on that? Even your point about her head being higher isn't true in all the pics. Look at this pic:
To me that doesn't tell us the full story, because we don't see footwear, but taking your logic, we have to say it proves beyond doubt that Brad is around 4 inches taller than her. It doesn't - it's inconclusive. However, there is a full body shot of both here:
Brad is looking maybe two inches taller, but we can't judge much from that as it's tough to see what kind of heel she has. What we can judge is that your claim of her being taller than him is way off.

Looking at Schroeder photos I think Pitt is 1 inch taller so what do you think Rob to downgrade Pitt at 5.11?
said on 3/Nov/05
Schroder's about 5'8" not 5'10" [Editor Rob: aged 17 he actually stood beside a height chart in a film...Click Here. It was mentioned in the Pitt a while ago. I would say at that age he was 174cm, pushing the 5ft 9 mark maybe...question was did he gain 1 more inch...I think he did]

Great pictures, Mary. People gotta be nutts to think he's over 5'9" or 10".

how tall do u reckon he is from these pictures of him with jolie?Notice hes wearing really huge boots and jolie's on almost flat soles and he still doesnt look anywhere like the 6'0 everyone says he is
Viper652 said on 2/Nov/05
Brad's height is interesting to say the least. Sometimes he looks a solid 5-10, and then sometimes he looks a little shorter. Id still say hes a solid 5-10.

I don't think Norton is over 6'.....
MD said on 1/Nov/05
Rob, please take a look back at this height and that of Edward Norton, or which I posted pics for on his page.
Drew said on 1/Nov/05
I posted the same pic twice!
Here's the two pics of Pitt and Norton:
As you can see, they are wearing same exact clothes, so the pics were taken on the same day, hence, they are wearing the same shoes as visible in the full body pic.
Pitt is CLEARLY at LEAST two inches shorter than Norton. That would make him 5'10.5".
Drew said on 31/Oct/05
Brad Pitt next to Norton:
Even though none of the pics are clear, it's evident that he's at least two inches shorter than Norton.
What said on 27/Oct/05
Someone in reality: That is a sick find. It is amazing what happens when the tricks are bagged. I add once again that my family met Pitt in Carmel and they confirmed to me that he was about 5'8" or 9". My dad used to be 6' but has shrunk to a cutie patootie 5'10" and Pitt was shorter than him. My mom is a fan (most girls are) and she wouldn't want to under-rate him. She said he was 5'9" and buff but skinny. This picture helps out a lot with confirming that.

Oh and here's the picture of him with Jolie that I referred to in the comment below and forgot to post:link
It just shows you that when actors are shot candidly, they seem to magically "shrink."
Someone in in reality said on 25/Oct/05
While I highly doubt Pitt is only 5'2, it may be closer to the truth than you think....check this picture out of him with the 5'4-5'5 Jolie on the beach. She is BAREFOOT and he is wearing boots (with lifts?!?). Brad Pitt is only 5'11 in his dreams. Trust me Charlton Heston may be going senile, but he knows his actors' heights "......And Brad Pitt is small...very strange." - Charlton Heston
MR. Smith said on 25/Oct/05
I you watch Mr. and Mrs. Smith, pay close attention to when Vince Vaun recieves Brad and Jolie's wanted list. The stats say that Brad Pitt is 6'1", but after viewing that picture of Brad next to Anthony Hopkins (5'8.5") we all know Hollywood LIES!!! Well... either that or Anthony Hopkins is slouching a good 4 inches.
Finding the truth said on 23/Oct/05
Even Guy Ritchie (accordig to imdb he is 5'11) is about an inch taller than Pitt on that one
Finding the truth said on 23/Oct/05
If you take a look on that one
he is 71 inch maximum, probably with shoes on, however I don't know if this picture is realistic and can really be used as a proof. But it seems ok :)

Hey guys take a look at that picture of Pitt and Del Toro http://www.eonline.com/Gossip/Fashion/Archive2/0,1912,975,00.html
The difference is 2-3inches. That makes Brad in 5'11-6'0 range, because Del Toro according to imdb, which usually overestimates celebrities, is 6'2
Ginny said on 21/Oct/05
I'm a small girl, 5ft 3, 105 lbs. I stood next to Brad asking for his autograph. I was wearing three inch heels, he was wearing tennis shoes. I would estimate his height as approximately 5 ft 11.
Adam said on 18/Oct/05
If Pitt is 5'2 then he's the same size roughly with Danny Devito....what are you smoking Munnos?
Adam said on 18/Oct/05
I've met Anthony Hopkins in person, and he's not 5'7. He's definitely 5'8 or 5'9. In Joe Black, Hopkins eyes is level with Pitt's mouth. Claire Forlani in heels, sees Pitt's lips at her eye level. Anything shorter than 5' 11 or 10 for Pitt is hard to believe.....anyone with a comparative picture for how short so many people are claiming him to be??
Anonymous said on 18/Oct/05
I just watched meet Joe Black and he looks two inches taller than 5'7" Anthony Hopkins. How can anyone really believe this guy is 5'11". It's kind of crazy.

He looks quite tall in Meet Joe Black. But looks quite short in Kalifornia. I'd say he's 5'11 barefeet and 6'1 with shoes. His lanky frame is deceiving....

As I wrote in Don Cheadle page, Don Cheadle is max 170cm (I think he is 168cm)because he is at least 1 inch shorter than 173 Sophie Okoneido (look www.gettyimages.com). Now if Cheadle is 5.7 then Pitt is no more than 5.11. In my opinion Pitt is exactly 5.11.

berry said on 8/Oct/05
You can find many old pap photos of Brad and Gwyenth walking together, wearing tennis shoes (trainers) and sandals, and it's clear that there is a 2-3 inch height difference. If you look at photos of them together at formal functions (at which Gwenyth would wear heels) she's ony a bit shorter than Brad. Brad has to be around 5'10, give or take. This makes sense also if you've seen recent pics of him with Jolie (on mag stands now!) in which they are both wearing biker boots, he looks a good five inches taller than Jolie, who is two inches shorter than Paltrow.
Below are two links to Brad and Gwyenth pictures on planethelium:

I am a hairstylist and one owner of the salon that I worked in at the time. her husband is a boom in the film industry. He worked on Seven and they filmed in downtown L.A. We went on set and saw them filming. Brad Pitt is taller than me and I'm 5'10, he is about 6'0 or maybe even 6'1, Morgan Freeman was tall maybe 6'3 and Kevin Spacey 5'10 my height. I met a woman in a store bragging about working on set and Brad Pitt was supposedly staring at her and a girl asked her if he was tall and she said no about 5'7, I knew she was lying then. She either saw someone that claimed to be him but she didn't see him because he is tall.

My family and I met Pitt in Carmel in 2004. He was without a doubt under 5'11". My dad is 6' but getting old and slouching. Brad was still two inches shorter. In fact, he appeared tiny to me, but really buff at the time. I have a piture of him next to my 5'8" cousin and they are of comparable height. don't be fooled by what movies can do. In addition, I met Gwyneth and she is not over 5'7" and they were pretty close in height.

One anonymous said these in section of mathew perry:
Anonymous says on 30/Aug/05
OK Brad Pitt is a self confessed 5'10.5 according to the 21st August post on his page. Perry was about 1cm taller than Pitt in that Friends episode, making him 5'11 or 180cm which looks feasible when you see him in that photo with 5'11 Agassi, and in the other photo looking at least 7cm shorter than 187cm Andy Roddick. I think Perry is 5'11 (180cm) at best, Le Blanc, who just doesn't look tall and appears of distinctly average height, and who is always at least two inches shorter than Perry, is 5'8.5-5'9 (174-175cm) at best and Schwimmer looks about 6'0.5(184cm), about 1.5 inches taller than Perry. The three male Friends and Pitt all need to be downgraded, no way in hell is Le Blanc the 5'10.5 that he claims,maybe he's clutching at straws and alluding to the fact that in 1- 1.5 inch shoes he technically is that height.
Mr. R said on 3/Sep/05
Falcon, that's the pic from the Interview with a Vampire press tour. Much was made of the fact that Tom had special shoes for the movie, and I am sure that he wore "special shoes" around Brad after the movie. For the first time, his "studly status" was a stake from a taller man!
Anonymous said on 3/Sep/05
He isn't less that 5' 10'' or 5' 11'', because that would put AAngelina Jolie under 5'6'' (she looks about 4 inches shorter than him in their movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith).
questioner said on 3/Sep/05
I agree with those who say Brad is 5'9-5'10. Also read Mr. R's comments about his perception of the avg male height increasing on college campuses, etc. Is there any hard evidence to support this? Also, I believe it takes longer than a few years for any height increase to show up. Avg. male height only increased by 1" between 1966 and 2002 so I would imagine it will take another 30+ yrs for another 1".
~Nate~ said on 3/Sep/05
I've seen Brad one time walking by a cafe on Rodeo Drive next to my friends apartment. I'm exactly 6'1 and we seemed to look eye to eye when we passed eachother. He's very nice I told him through passing that he's a great actor and I love all his movies, he took about three more steps and turned around to say "Thanks Man, appreciate it". I dont know about lifts but yeah were about the same.

I'M BACK! IN THE PREMIERE'S PHOTOS OF "THE DEVIL'S OWN" ON WWW.BRADPITTFAN.COM PITT LOOKS ALWAYS 2 INCHES SHORTER THAN FORD. EVEN IF FORD IS 6 FOOT THIS MEANS THAT PITT IS NO MORE THAN 5.11 MAX, MAYBE 5.10. HOW COULD YOU EXPLAIN THIS?
CelebHeights Editor said on 23/Aug/05
From gossip newsgroup: "I've been insisting Brad Pitt is maybe a bit over 5'10 for ages, I met him in the early 90s ... nooooobody believes me. "He's 6 feet!"
CelebHeights Editor said on 21/Aug/05
A post from 2001 gossip newsgroup worth showing: "I've actually met him a few times. Well, not exactly accurate, I've 'met' him once and stood next to him two other times, this was in the early 90's as well. Once he was wearing sneakers to my sneakers, the other times he was wearing something with a thin sole and a heel of about an inch, and each time we were on flat surfaces. He was a dead straight look into my eyes, his shoulders were maybe a tad bit below mine, which was fairly easy to tell since he was remarkably square-shoulders. If he's taller than me it's in the forehead, and I'm a smidge over 5'10. Given that he filled out the form I saw early in his career as 5'10.5 and there's no real advantage to adding anything to 5'10, and that he was virtually identical to my height, I'd wager that's his actual height. I hate to be anal about the subject, but it's "one of those things" and, due to my personal experience, has always been my prime example not only of the fact that an inch or more is routinely added on to officially published heights, but that most people can't tell. An inch isn't a big distance, if you're not his actual height and not 6'0 even it would be hard to say exactly how tall the man is"
delfonic said on 19/Aug/05
Some of you have alot to learn about hollywood elevator shoes. Some of you think if they don't look like Gene Simmons boots, then they must be average every day shoes. Of course Pitt's shoes appear to have a modest to average heel on the outside, but trust me there is a big heel on the inside. That is why they always have a high ankle to accomodate his ankle sitting so high in the shoe, other wise his foot would fall out when he tried to walk. The shoes are also long and flat in the front to better disguise the fact he is in heels. Ever notice how women's shoes with a 3 inch heel don't stick out in the front as much because the foot is curled up on the heel? In conclusion: an average size heel, long flat front (that his toes don't even reach inside) and a long inseam on his pants insure his shoes "look" normal at a glance. Throw in his square shoulders, slender build and erect posture and presto! A guy who's about 5'10" suddenly looks a very believable 6'1". Jude Law uses the same formula to go from 5'8" or 5'9" to around 5"11 or 6'.

I really cannot understand why there are still people who think Pitt is 6' - the guy wrote 5'11" HIMSELF on his CV back in the late 80's!!
NO actor is going to list themselves even half an inch shorter than they really are.
He just about scrapes 5'11" people, there really isn't anything left to debate about.
finallyproof said on 11/Jul/05
The above pic proves Brad could not be near 5'11" because he has on boots and shes wearing shoes and somehow she is taller than him.
Paltrow is about 5'10"tops and Brad's boots give him atleast a half inch advantage over her shoes. Paltrow still has about an inch on him. Below 5'10". How else can it be explained. To me it sounds wrong but pictures dont lie.
[Editor Rob: yeah, she's taller because she's much closer to the lense than pitt...how do you think they made ferrell look so big in many Elf scenes ;)]
KJ said on 10/Jul/05
Well if Brad is 5'11, then why does he feel the need to wear lifts or be listed at tall? I mean he is much taller than most actors in Hollywood
talker said on 9/Jul/05
I agree with stick.Letterman wouldnt have called Pitt "tiny" if the guy was 5'11''.He is not "tiny" but Letterman probably wanted to make fun of the fact that people think he is a lot taller.I think Pitt is around 5'9"maybe a little taller.

Well, Brad came to mexico city, where i am right now, he looked at best 5.10 1/2 max 5.11.
If you saw the Smiths movie, then you see brad looks shorter next to 5.7 Angelina Jolie with 3inch heels, and pitt supposedly in 1.5 or less shoes.
He looks 5.10.
@bored said on 6/Jul/05
you've obviously never seen a well designed pair of elevator shoes before if think Pitt was wearing "normal dress shoes" on Oprah. Look at any picture of Pitt with Paltrow where he seems 2-3 inches taller, Then you will see one custom pair of elevator shoes after another. But don't look at the pic of them both in "normal sandles" looking the same height, as this may confuse you.
Heightster said on 6/Jul/05
In hollywood, actors often start out shorter and grow taller as their career progresses. Brad Pitt is a prime example who grew from 5-10 to 6-1 after his 30th b-day. Orlando Bloom started out at 5-9 and is now "listed" at 6-0. Jude Law started out at 5-10 or 5-11, jumped up to 6-1/2 and dropped back to 5-11 after his overexposure and flops. Cruise is the one most scrutinized, with Stallone (who claims 6-0 and his been listed as small as 5-7). Yet, Hollywood is the game of illusion and enchantment. Everyone guy wants to be around 6 feet and every woman wants to be between 5-6 and 5-10. In fact women over 6 usually "list" as 5-10 or 5-11 whereas guys anywhere around 5-10 typically "list" 6'+.
bored said on 5/Jul/05
Pitt looks a solid 5'11 at the least. I'd say 5'11 is generally a good height for a man. Im 5'8, and here in Canada average men are generally 2-3 inches taller than me =[. Here http://images.oprah.com/images/tows/slide/200405/20040503/slide_20040503_02_350.jpg is a pic with brad pitt standing beside Oprah whos listed as 5'6.5 on this site. Here http://images.oprah.com/images/tows/slide/200405/20040503/slide_20040503_06_350.jpg is another pic with them sitting down, from which we can see their shoes. Brad's shoes look like standard dress shoes so I'd say between 5'11-6 is an accurate guess.
Bill said on 4/Jul/05
Yes anything over 5-10 is tall, some countries like Holland 5-10 to 5-11 would be average but there is a larger number of very tall people there. just remember 50% of people are average but the majority of the others are within an inch or so of the upper or lower range of average. At 6' only 14% of men are the same height or taller in the USA and around 16% for the UK
Parker said on 3/Jul/05
Dave - All depends where you are standing. If you are on an Island of pygmies, your a giant. If your standing in a town in Holland, your average. In the UK your deemed Tall. Height is relative. It depends on the people around you, so for height definition you can only go off statistics and where you live. If your 5'5" and live in the UK or USA, 95 out of every 100 adult males will be taller than you. That's short. If your 5'8 50 out of every 100 adult males will be taller. That's average. If your 6'3, 95 out of every 100 adult males will be shorter. That's tall.
Dave said on 2/Jul/05
Even if Pitt is 5'11 he'd still be considered relatively tall wouldn't he? i'm 182-183cm (5'11.75-6'0) tall barefoot and am curious to know if that would be considered average height or tall? Where does average height end and considered tall begin? i am a 21 year old male by the way.
Sticks said on 29/Jun/05
The best evidence we've seen of Pitt's real height is the two pictures of him with Paltrow (one barefoot at a pool, one in sandals walking) and the picture of Pitt on stage with Clooney, Damon and Garcia. In every case you can see the footwear and make a decent comparison with someone else. He's very similar in height to Gwyneth Paltrow (less than 1" difference), whose height isn't closely scrutinized. Even when Pitt's clearly wearing lifts, Matt Damon can be taller than him in shoes that are only a little suspicious. That only means that, if Pitt's taller, he sure isn't taller by much. I think that if we have no idea what their footwear is like, picture evidence is almost meaningless.
JUSTMATT said on 29/Jun/05
If you go to www.bradpittfan.com in the section "television" you will find photos of Pitt at Jay Leno Show. There is a photo where Pitt and Leno are face to face and Pitt is 1 inch taller than Leno so if Leno is 5.10 Pitt is 5.11 but if Leno is 5.11 Pitt is 6. Anyway later I noticed another photos where we can see Pitt shoes...in my opinion they are very suspicious, they are boots and maybe they have lifts inside...what do you think?
FASULO said on 29/Jun/05
I would say that all this debate on Pitt is fantastic.This man can appear everywhere with most various heights for every single occasion,in every single place.I think he is really a god.Probably really a new Achilles in Hollywood with his "magic boots"...
Mr. R said on 28/Jun/05
Chris, this is a very important picture. Of course we can't see shoes, but Schwimmer has been listed at 6-2 since he hit it big. I saw an old Saturday Night Live show with Schwimmer doing a sketch with Will Farrell in an elevator. It seems to be commonly acceptable that Farrell is pretty much the 6-3 he claims to be. Standing shoulder to shoulder, Schwimmer is about 2 inches shorter than Farrell, which means that he is really 6-1 at best. If the shoes in your pic are equal, that puts Brad about 5-10.5
JUSTMATT said on 28/Jun/05
PITT THE NEVERENDING HEIGHT'S STORY...You know guys...sometimes Pitt seems a real 6.1 guy! Look on www.gettyimages.com his photos with Jim Carrey. Carrey is 6.2 so with shoes probably 6.3 or 190 cm. In all tis photos Pitt is no more than 1 inch shorter than Carrey so 188 cm with shoes on!!! Know my question for you Rob and for everybody is: could a boy who is only 180 cm (someone says 5.10!!)be the same height of 187-188 Carrey even if he wears lifts in his shoes? My answer is that or Carrey isn't 187 or Pitt is a real 183 cm....
J. said on 28/Jun/05
Again ... judging an actor's height by television is very risky in terms of accuracy. Anyhow, that picture is hilarious and brings the mind the comments Mr. LeBlanc made to Katie Couric which are posted on his height page on this site. He says he has a 'short complex' because his two 'Friends' co-stars are an inch or two taller than him. Huh?!?! How the hell do anyone feel short because someone's a mere 1 or 2 inches taller than you? It's just the Hollywood way, I guess, to tell a blantant lie.
I think when he says this BS 5'10.5" he really means 5'8.5" or lower, since it is common for the Hollywood folk to add 2 inches on to their height and 2 inches off of their age. (Also Perry and Schwimmer aren't that tall so why would a nearly 5'11" guy feel short next to them?!- There's obviously a lie being told).
said on 28/Jun/05
LeBlanc 179...JOKE OF THE DAY!!!!! the guy ain't taller than 5'9 175 cm max!![Editor Rob: I'll give you Joke of the Week too: I am going to INCREASE leBlanc to his proper height of 184cm.

Raj, Letterman did make that comment in his usual smart alecky way. I watched the show when it aired. It was his way of flirting with Julia Roberts, who was dating 6-2 Benjamin Bratt at the time.

I don't think Pitt-Paltrow pic is a wonderful one to evaluate.Because they are walking(Pitt in a very wide step)and Paltrow is behind him.However all that I said doesn't justify +1 inch of difference between them.In all cases I think Pitt is slightly under 5'11"

Julia Roberts on Letterman promoting the Mexican:
Dave: I will take them all out if you want. You know I'm just teasing you.
Julia: Oh my God, let's talk about The Mexican. You said the first question was going to be about the tiny, tiny man.
--break in my copy, they look at a movie clip--
Dave: Whenever March 2 is and it's gonna be a huge movie because it's entertaining and it has you in it of course and Brad Pitt.
Julia: What's this thing, I'm just a little confused I guess would be the best word. What's with the "tiny" I don't understand that.
Dave: I'm 6'2". That's all I'm saying.
Julia: No! No!
Dave: To me that's what guys ought to be ......6', 6'2", right in there. That's all I'm saying.
Julia: OK, well, Benjamin's 6'2".
Dave: Exactly. Exactly. But you spent the summer with Brad Pitt making your movie, how tall is that guy?
Julia: He's Brad Pitt; he measures right up.
Dave: How many crates was he sitting on in that shot that we saw then. [Julia stands up as though to fight Dave]
Dave: God bless you. You know I think the world of you.
It's dropped down the web's memory hole but I copied some of it a long time ago. Let's see if it lasts. Julia Roberts could easily defend a 5'11"-ish Brad Pitt by saying he was 6'. Even if he were around 5'10", she could say he was around 6'. And why would David Letterman call the guy "tiny" in the first place if he was average height or more? Take Occam's razor to the problem: he's short and they both know it. Is there another plausible explanation?

Paltrow is not 5cm shorter than Jude Law in that picture. A line parallel to the horizontal lines on the wall makes it clear that they're at the same height. She's reducing her height by bending a knee and dropping her hip, arching her back and sticking out her neck, techniques she must have honed in her relationship with the "tiny sex maniac". It's hard to spot and she does the same thing in that picture where she's in the converse all-stars and Pitt's in boots. I think the difference in shoes gives her about a 4cm advantage (picture the difference in the height of their ankles) and she takes most or all of that away with her make-the-man-tall tricks. They're at the same height in the picture and I bet they're within an inch of eachother barefoot.

Ok STICKS but one thing is sure: even if Jude Law was 183 cm and with shoes probably 186-187 then Gwyneth Paltrow is never 177 because she has at least 7-8 cm heels but she is still 5 cm shorter than Law. If she was 177 then 177+8 cm heels=185cm! In my opinion Paltrow is 173 cm tall and this only if Law is 183 because if he is shorter then also Paltrow is a lot shorter than 177. What do you think Editor Rob?[Editor Rob: maybe in some of the pics from that series she isn't standing greatly. There's one pic where both their postures look better and considering the angle of the photo the difference isn't that great...but yes her heels vs his heels still suggests if Paltrow is the current height of 177 then Law may well be the original 182 i gave him ;) Of course you can go back 6 years and find both of them not with the best posture and maybe wonder about his footwear. Also see Law beside not quite 6ft daniel craig...]

JUSTMATT: Yeah, I tried that when the picture got posted last week, but it's too dependent on a guess that the pattern's height is some sensible number of cm. If you try to figure out the width of those rectangles, you'll find that it's not a nice integer, which makes a so-so idea pretty weak. I'm not saying it's wrong, but if the height has to be some multiple of 5 (which is why you say it's 40 and not 38 or 41) then why wouldn't the width be the same, e.g., 45cm? The length to the width ratio is 6:7 and if you used 2.5cm as one unit then Law's height in shoes comes out to just over 5'7". If you said an inch is one unit then his height in shoes is just over 5'8". It's too arbitrary to use as an argument.
Scott said on 22/Jun/05
The Gwyneth and Brad in sandals picture is very interesting, as there is very little difference. It is especially interesting when compared with this pic of no more than 5'11 Jude Law next to well heeled Gwyneth:
I imagine that barefoot there is a very real possibility that Brad is no more than 178-179cm max. A case of a perfectly acceptable height that has been exaggerated as the years have gone by and Brad has felt compelled to live up to the expectation with lifts. Very surprsing really. I imagine the debate will continue for years though ...

Why the continued debate??? Finally...a picture of Pitt without elevator shoes!!! He's in sandles, as is Paltrow and they are the exact same height (give or take a 1/2 inch for stride). Gweneth is listed as 5'9" to 5'10" everywhere. So how the hell could Pitt be 5'11" to 6'1" without his "special shoes"????? C'mon guys get off Pitt's jock already and stop buying the hype. Most elevator shoes add an average of 3 inches to barefoot height. This is why Pitt appears 6" to 6'1" in most public appearences and films. Look again: http://www.bradpittfan.com/pics/z058a.jpg

Let's not forget that Pitt is (when not playing a role that requires him to bulk up) 159 pounds (which may be stretching it, too when you have to stick with 159 and not just round up to 160). With his build, he doesn't look to be anything over 5'10".

The Spanish from Spain are CAUCASIAN, pretty similar to Italian, Portuguese & French. The Spanish from South America are mostly what the Americans call Red Men,related to Asiatics, thought some are from European inmigrant origin.
The avg height for youngs is 5'10 & for >30 = 176-177cm.
I have serious reasons to think the Americans smaller than that.
But no matter, all humans has the same grothw potential (except some African tribes with hormonal problems as pygmees). The only diff is the INCOME, wich grants a better health, that implies more growth. That may explain black lower
J.J said on 21/Jun/05
Watched (part of) Interview with the vampire yesterday and it would seem to me this was before Brad started using lifts - he is definitely not 6' in that.
5'11" is spot on I'm pretty sure now
Joe said on 20/Jun/05
Don't really know where to post this, seems like a lot of people visit Pitt's page. What is considered average height for a male? I've read 5'9/5'10. What have you all heard?
Anonymous said on 20/Jun/05
This picture proves that Pitt cant be any shorter than 5'10.5" and i think he is 5'11".Roberts is about 5'8" and she is wearing 3-4" heels. This would make her 5'11" -6'. Pitt is still taller than her at about 1.5" so that would make him 6'0.5"- 6'1.5". Sutract 1.5" for his heels on his boots. You are left with 5'11" - 6" .
Chris said on 20/Jun/05
This proofs that Brad is 5'11''.
On the other hand, maybe he is 5'10''. I honestly don
sticks said on 19/Jun/05
dmeyer, how can you conclude that Damon is taller than Clooney from the picture on the stage and avoid the conclusion that he's taller than Pitt? Look at Pitt's right foot. Other than centaurs, who has a leg that looks like that? Guys wearing lifts. Face it: whatever they had in their shoes that night made Damon taller, and Damon's ankles look more natural than Pitt's.
MHouillon, are you sure it's just 'embarassing' and not 'blasphemous'? What makes you so sure he's not under 5'10"? Why would Duchovny say he's shorter than he really is? Apparently Adam Brody said Pitt's 5'10" on the Tonight Show. Do you think Brody's rounding Pitt's height down to irritate a powerful Hollywood star?
MHouillon said on 19/Jun/05
Brad Pitt is 181cm-182cm, David Duchovny is 184cm-185cm. Saying Brad is 5'10" or less is embarassing.
dmeyer said on 19/Jun/05
it is weird because i met jerry weintraub and he is aleast 6'2'' and brad is taller than him so brad is sometimes 189 cm but i also met freeman who is 6'3'' and pitt looked 3'' shorter i guess pitt is the only men to grow after 30 years old
dmeyer said on 19/Jun/05
rob i just saw the picture from pitt garcia clooney damon damon is taller than clooney it is weird because in ocean 11 and 12 damon look 2 inches shorter than clooney and 3 inches shorter than pitt in this pic clooney have weird looking shoes so damon is not as short as i thaught he is atleast 179 cm pitt could be wearing elevator but it is dificult to say i saw a lot of pics of clooney and he alwais hane a minimum of 4 cm heels pitt is a mistery but he is no taller than 6'1

On the Duchovny-Pitt picture: Don't you think Pitt, who wouldn't wear sandals in Troy or take off his shoes on the set, would be wearing lifts? Sure, there's a difference of 2" in the picture. But for every extra bit of lift beyond whatever Duchovny's getting, Pitt's that much further under 5'10". If Duchovny's in 1" soles and Pitt's got a 1" lift, Pitt's 5'9".

"5'11" Brad Pitt with 6'0 David Duchovny http://www.bradpittfan.com/pics/mka024b.jpg. Brad looks two inches shorter then David here plus David is slouching.

JUSTMATT: 1. If you figure out the difference in distance from the camera you'll find that it's very small and the consequences to Pitt's apparent height are much smaller (I get less than 2cm).
2. The Webber pictures can be explained by a difference in the amount of lift in their shoes.
3. James saw Pitt at about 183cm, not 185-186cm. For every inch of lift over the standard 1" sole, Pitt is another inch below 5'11". That means that if Pitt had 2" lifts in, he would be 175-176cm barefoot, 5'9" or a bit more.
4. I admire the faith you and rick have in the honesty of a male actor reporting his height.
delfonic said on 18/Jun/05
Yeah rick, why don't we trust him? It's not like actors have ever been known to lie about thier height, so I guess he must be 5' 11". More accurately 5' 11" in normal shoes, just under 6' 1" in his special shoes and about 5' 10" barefoot. If you had filled out an audition form or acting resume before, you would know few people actually put their "barefoot" height on these forms. Pitt's no dummy, even in 1987, he knew enough about the game to round up his height an inch.
