Looks 5'10 or even more in That 70s show but that's just because of the boots. I'd still guess maybe 5'9 and a half.
truthteller25 said on 29/Dec/19
5'8.5 at the most he never looked similar to Topher Grace whose 5'10.8 so yep 5'8.5 is max and considering his shoulders and head are kind of small this is the most. Wilder Vanderrama was like 5'5 to 5'7 and he always looked about 2 inches taller but never more than 2 inches taller.
Nebi said on 28/Mar/19
174-176 cm is possible
Smiles03 said on 30/Apr/18
A strong 5'9 close to 5'10
nikola said on 20/Jul/17
Yeah,but Valderrama like Danny,almost always wears thick boots.It's rather hard to pinpoint their height precisely,on that show,at least.
said on 18/Jul/17
Rob,do you think that with massive boots he is wearing on that 70's show,he can pull of looking 5'11"?
Danny could certainly pull off looking 3 inches taller than Wilmer at times.
Marc said on 4/Oct/16
I saw him with Chris Jericho and Jericho looked taller not sure if it's a good example.
Charizard said on 10/May/16
Saw him with his partner actress Bijou Philips and she is around 5'5and he isn't much taller than her.
lelman said on 29/Apr/15
Either he needs a slight downgrade or Topher Grace needs an upgrade. He looks the same height as Topher in massive platform shoes. I think Topher is 5'10.75" and this guy is 5'8.75".

With 5'6" Clark Duke:

Started watching the show again and I noticed that they all very often wear platform shoes in this. It seems to mainly be Danny Masterson and Wilmer Valderamma, but each male character will wear them at times.
This might be why Danny can often look as tall as Topher and taller than Laura Prepon. I think that might be why Topher can often look 5'11-5'11.5 next to Ashton Kutcher on occasion, although from what I saw he doesn't wear them very often.
I also noted that Joseph Gordon Levitt wore them when he appeared on the show and still looked about two inches shorter than Topher Grace. I guess he was only about 17 at the time though.
AJ said on 6/Jun/14
I think 5'9" flat is closer.
Pete said on 19/Mar/14
I was at a party with Danny Masterson and he was definitely shorter than me by about two inches, at least. I'm 5'10".
said on 18/Mar/14
With Wilmer Valderamma:
Wilmer would have to be in some serious lifts and Danny just about barefoot for there to be nearly three inches between the two.
anon said on 8/Aug/13
id say hes closer to about 5 8 fez was only about 5 6 he only seemed to have an inch or 2 on him
17, 182 said on 13/Apr/13
Yeah, does look right. I heard he was 5'11 but never really seemed that tall?
said on 20/Nov/11
With 5'8.75 Ben Foster:
Personally, I think Ben is ever so slightly taller (.25 inches), but the least you need to do is take off this quarter inch.
blue said on 2/Nov/11
Looks about 5'9"
Dominic said on 25/Aug/11
Did Danny Masterson wear massive lifts on that 70's show? In most scenes he's taller than Topher Grace and marginally shorter than Kurtwood Smith. I could have sworn this guy was 182cm but I guess he had to be wearing lifts if he's this short.
john said on 16/Aug/11
I saw that dude dj at a bar in Utah. He is pretty short.
Big Mike said on 4/Jul/11
5ft9 in a quarter seems sorta ok I have heard he was 5ft10but in some That 70 Show episodes he wore big heeled boots
Sean said on 31/May/11
he added his afro into the equation when he came up with 5'10"
pb said on 16/Apr/11
john, that pic you posted on 10/30/10 is from a bad angle - you can't judge wilmer's and danny's height from a weird angle like that and with wilmer closer to the camera (which gives him the illusion of being taller than he really is).
as i mentioned earlier on 7/15/10, i've seen danny masterson twice in person - he's 5'8.5" at best, but probably even less than that. i haven't seen wilmer in person, but every photo or video i've seen which is taken from a proper angle shows that wilmer is at least 1.5"-2" shorter.
john said on 6/Nov/10
yeah, and acording to that and the previous picture we can presume that Masterson is not more than 5ft7.5 or 5ft8 in the morning. he needs a downgrade
SMC7 said on 31/Oct/10
Sorry, Wilmer is not 5'9. He is 5'6. He is no taller than 5'7 for sure. In that 70's he usually wore boots that gave him a good two inches at that put him in between 5'7 and 5'8. He's short.
said on 30/Oct/10
hey guys, look at this - Danny next to Wilmer Valderrama(5 ft 7.5 or maybe smaller)
Michael said on 21/Jun/09
I'd believe 5'10". People want him to seem shorter to feel better about themselves. He's not a short looking guy, he looks about average 5'10". Kevans brought up a comparison to Prepon, who I doubt would lie to make herself seem taller (woman usually want to seem shorter). 5'9"-5'10" seems exactly right. The listed height is perfect.
Clay said on 14/Apr/09
Did look just 5'9 in ''Yes man''.
Kevans said on 30/Jan/09
"LostinBoston says on 29/Feb/08
They're not "cowboy boots", they are Frye Boots and they have a two inch heel. In the scene on T7S with Jackie, Hyde, Red and Kitty in the kitchen after they find J and H in bed together, Hyde and Red are both barefoot, side by side, Red is 6' and Hyde is at the very LEAST 5'10" but in that scene he looks only about an inch shorter. Danny also is at least 2 inches taller than Wilmer."
LostinBoston posts this well.
Danny is one of those people that look shorter than they seem, mostly because he has round shoulders. His posture is terrible you can tell. From watching that 70s show, he looks about as tall as Laura who is a good 5'10. He's deff. about an inch shorter than Topher, not much more. And a good 2 inches taller than Fez. How can people say that he's wearing "lifts" inside his boots without actually seeing them. His boots have a good 2 inch heel, yes. But most shoes have a good inch or so of heel too, unless you're wearing sandals.
Kate said on 2/Nov/08
He seems pretty short on that 70's show, but that's mainly standing next to Ashton I guess. I'm gonna trust the guys who've seen him in person, but I would have a hard time believing he's over 5'9.
pb said on 3/Oct/08
saw this guy at joe's pizza on carmine st in manhattan (nyc) in the summer of 2006. the pizzeria is really small and everyone eats their pizza while standing, so i got a really good look at him. i'd peg his height at 5'9" MAX, but more likely 5'8.5" or 5'8.75". i was surprised, because on "that '70s show" he looks more like 5'10" - which he clearly is not in real life. also, i remember him wearing typical hipster sneakers, so it's highly unlikely that he had any insoles or lifts in his footwear.
when i saw this guy, i remember thinking, "he might be an inch shorter than my brother", who's 5'9.5" barefoot. so while i'm tempted to list danny at 5'8.5", i will acknowledge that he doesn't have brad pitt-esque posture. so again, i'll say 5'9" max, but possibly 1/4" to 1/2" below that.
martijn said on 29/Sep/08
today i saw the episode of danny masterson on punk'd, and before i realized it was danny masterson, i found that the guy was kinda short.. when i saw it was danny, i was kinda surprised cause i thought he would be taller, so i'd say 5'8.5", maybe 5'8"
sf said on 28/Mar/08
No way Usher's 5'8", and if he stood up straight next to Masterson, probably as tall. Remini's pushing 5'5", maybe 5'6" with heels, putting Danny maybe 5'9". If these shorter Hollywood actors are like many normal shorter actors, they have lifts in their shoes. Maybe, maybe not.

sf said on 26/Mar/08
Well, "Random Person" is looking into the Masterson brothers too!
I've been studying Danny too, just watched the episodes on Roseanne. Masterson looks 5'8" sometimes, and at most 5'9" He's at least 18, (The year is 1994 in the show, so my comment below about him being 20 is incorrect) so let's conclude he's probably stopped growing. I've also been watching that 70's show a lot. I've been studying Masterson's footwear. I really do believe he has lifts in his boots from the way they look and how his foot seems to be/look, if that makes sense. You ask, "why would they do that?" Well, for the same reason they put Mila Kunis in 3" heels. they do that so she won't look so short next to Prepon, and it's easier to fit her into the same frame. Also, you already have a "short" guy, in Wilmer V. who obviously wears lifts on the show many times, as sometimes, he literally looks almost 2 inches taller in some episodes. I dont' think Danny is any taller than 5'9", at best.
Random Person said on 21/Mar/08
In the episode with Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who's listed at 5'9.5" here), he was at least a half-inch taller. And again, I'll say that he didn't look to be above 5'9" on Roseanne. So 5'9" and a lift-wearer. The odd thing is, he always looks to be at least an inch taller than his brother who's nothing less than 5'8".
sf said on 14/Mar/08
mmm...gotta disagree with the last poster. Just saw a very early episode where Fez and Hyde are both barefeet. Hyde looks not more than an inch taller. The camera angle isn't perfect, but just can't see him over 5'9". Don't let Masterson's hair fool you.

Upgrade then, according to glenn?
glenn said on 30/Jan/08
masterson is one of those legit 5-10 guys who looks shorter.im not sure why i said 5-8.unless i was talking about another masterson or that was my initial reaction.ive studied him alot since i joined the site.hadnt seen him in a couple years.now all the time.so maybe i hadnt seen him in awhile when i posted.
sf said on 29/Jan/08
Glenn - I don't get it. On this site, you say 5-10. On the site for Topher, you adamantly say Masterson is only 5'8"...sorry, I am coming off kind of confrontational, which isn't my intent. But, I'm just curious???
5'9" or 5'10" WITH boots and who knows what else....
Alex said on 10/Jan/08
Yesterday he was 2 inches shorter than 5'11 Topher Grace. 5'9 it is.
sf said on 28/Dec/07
No, on Roseanne - he would have been around 20, at least. He was 22 when he started that 70's show. He was on Roseanne in the last few years, playing a college student... No taller than 5'9".
Alex said on 28/Dec/07
Topher is def. 5'11 I'd say. He has minimum 1 inch on Danny. Danny might very well be 5'10. Now that makes Wilmer at 5'8 if he was lucky but I see Danny with 2-3 inches on Wilmer. Ashton is about 6'2. Kurt Woodsmith looks about 6'0.
For the girls Mila 5'3 and Laura 5'10.
HellBoundPower said on 27/Dec/07
When Danny was on Roseanne, he was 16-17, so it's possible that he wasn't even fully grown yet. And as nate said, he usually looks about half an inch shorter than Topher. Granted he wears the boots, but Topher wore big shoes sometimes as well. I'd say that heights they both claim are accurate, with Danny being 5'10", and Topher being 5'11".
nate said on 24/Dec/07
he looks about a half an inch shorter than topher grace. by the way whatever happened to this guy?
Anonymous said on 25/Oct/07
Danny Masterson was on a few episodes on Roseanne before he did That 70's Show. I have to say, he didn't look over 5'9 on that show comparing him to 5'4 Roseanne and 5'1 Sara Gilbert. Might have even been closer to 5'8. Also, it should be noted that during most of the first season on That 70's Show, Danny really did look 5'8-5'9. After though, he "grew" and looked pretty much 5'10 for the rest of the series. I'm sorry, I just can't believe 5'10 for this guy though. I recently saw a scene where he's standing next to a barefoot Mila Kunis (who is about 5'3) and he looked maybe 5'10 in shoes. Rob's pretty much got him right, he could be 5'8.5".
Bombay Rocker said on 22/Aug/07
Yeah Glenn, i can't question that but just maybe when you saw him, he was wearing lifts but ya if you say, you saw him at 5 feet 10 then ya he must have looked it but he might be in lifts, did u check out his shoes....cause if danny is 178 then wilmer for sure is 175 cause i just can't see more than 3 cms between him and wilmer....Did you check danny and wilmer pics in getty when both are wearing exact same sneakers and danny looks max 1 inch taller and btw Rob has listed wilmer at 5 feet 7.5 so i think 5 feet 9 is really the max unless wilmer is taller than 5 feet 8.
glenn said on 21/Aug/07
yeah,but if i see 5-10 and he says 5-10,why question it?
Bombay Rocker said on 21/Aug/07
Well Glenn, no offence but isn't it that every celeb says they are a certain height when actually they aren't....i think 5 feet 9 is totally accuarte, no shorter...no taller.
glenn said on 21/Aug/07
the man himself says 5-10.
HellBoundPower said on 20/Aug/07
Glenn has met him and said he was 5'10". I always thought he was 5'10". And he's usually taller than Topher when he has his boots on, not shorter. Danny is almost as tall as 6'1" Kurtwood Smith in his boots.
RobertJ said on 10/Aug/07
C'mon guys, he's ALWAYS wearing boots with minimum 1 inch heel on the 70's show. Compared to Topher who almost always wear sneakers he's still shorter. He's no more than 5'8'', maybe 5'8.5''. Plus his fro makes him look taller.
glenn said on 10/Aug/07
i see danny all the time.i dont approach him.i have a couple with him from years ago.not interested in an update at the moment.sweet guy.just not into him.l keep taking laura prepon.i have 5 with her.hot women i take over and over again.men,it has to be a a -list star.i dont know who aoki is.prepon is 5-10.the lowest danny could be is 5-9.5.
Anonymous said on 10/Aug/07
MD, he's more than marginally taller than Wilmer. He's got him by AT LEAST an inch. I'm also a huge fan of That '70s Show, and I own all the Seasons available on DVD right now. I've watched all of them closely, and Danny with shoes off and Topher with shoes off are only about an inch apart.
Bombay Rocker said on 6/Aug/07
So did you actually meet him again? any pics? did you check out his shoes? have heard hes been DJing for a while and was on some kind oif a tour with steve aoki and hey do you know glenn how tall is that steve aoki guy? Whats your accurate guess on danny barefeet.
glenn said on 5/Aug/07
then wilmer is 5-8.danny does look shorter than 5-10.but thats how 5-10ers are.i thought danny was my height once.until i examined him.
Bombay Rocker said on 4/Aug/07
Also if danny is 5 feet 10 then that means christopher is like 5 feet 9.5 - 5 feet 9.75 cause there is hardly any difference in their height, hell christopher also might be 5 feet 10 if danny is 5 feet 10.
Bombay Rocker said on 4/Aug/07
If he is 5 feet 10 then without a doubt wilmer is taller than that 5 feet 7.5 listing cause there are so many pics in getty of them wearing same kind of sneakers and he looks a max of an inch taller in them to wilmer. Or maybe wilmer is 5 feet 8.5 buy ya in that 70's show wilmer and topher are mostly wearing flatter footwear than danny who is always in 4 - 5 cms heels and who knows maybe lifts and is still shorter than topher who is wearing flat shoes and is listed 5 feet 11 but might be 6 feet but that is maximum for him but i think topher is 182 so maybe danny is 5 feet 10 but then the question remains how does wilmer only look 1 inch shorter than danny.
Glenn said on 30/Jul/07
He is 5-10.I see him weekly.
MD said on 29/Jul/07
The guy is only marginally taller than Wilmer Valderamma. As a fan of the show, I'm surprised you didn't notice that, nor bother to look at the rest of the photos on this page.
HellBoundPower said on 29/Jul/07
There were some scenes where he would be taller than Topher. Being a huge fan of That '70s Show, I notice it all the time. He wears boots that add about 2 inches in height, and he constantly looks 6'0", which is why I believe his 5'10" claim.
Victorian said on 12/Jul/07
The lifts he wore on That 70s show weren't too shabby. They didn't make him taller than Topher Grace (Eric Forman) though. 175 or 174 cm is my guess for this fellow.
HellBoundPower said on 6/Jul/07
Looks 5'10", next to nearly 5'9" Will Friedle in "Trojan War". I think he was wearing regular shoes in the movie, while Friedle wore boots.
Bombay Rocker said on 13/Jun/07
I agree with MD, go to his myspace and check out his second pic which is with his brother and both are wearing same type of casuals and chris masterson actually looks like a tiny winy bit taller, i think both are around the 175 mark.
said on 11/Jun/07
This height is right if his brother, Christopher, is really his full 5'8.5", which I doubt. They are very close in height.
Chris (left) and Danny to his right.
Alex said on 10/Jun/07
Thing is Ashton isn't over 6'2. More 6'1.5-6'2 which puts Danny at 5'9 as there could be more 5 inches apart.
said on 10/Jun/07Click Here
Danny with Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. Danny and Ashton both look to be wearing casual dress shoes, and Mila in big heels. Danny only looks to be about 4 inches shorter than 6'2.5" Ashton, making him somewhere around 5'10"-5'10.25".
Alex said on 27/May/07
He looks 5'9 with 5'10.5-5'11 Topher Grace.
P. Smith said on 28/Mar/07
Stick with whatever you want he's not 5-10. I have met him. I doubt he's even as tall as he is described on this site...
HellBoundPower said on 9/Mar/07
Another point is I don't think they would make lifts to add over 4 inches to him. He usually looks at least 6' even with his boots on, and two inch heels would make him 5'10", so I stick with 5'10".
HellBoundPower said on 9/Mar/07
I really don't see a show like That 70s Show trying to make them look taller, because I don't think anyone really cares how tall they are.
MD said on 8/Mar/07
lol! Just ignore the pictures, because TV shows never do anything to distort height, right?
HellBoundPower said on 7/Mar/07
Well I'd say that Danny looks at least 2 inches taller than Wilmer on the show, and they wear basically the same kind of shoes. I'd still say 5'10" for Danny.
said on 6/Mar/07
One more with Valderrama where I think we can more safely assume they are wearing similar type shoes, with the advantage even given to Danny since he's slightly in front of Wilmer:
said on 6/Mar/07
Just for reference since the old Getty links went down. With 5'7.7" Wilmer Valderrama (more likely around 5'7"), but we can't see their feet. Either way, anything over 5'9" just isn't the case:
HellBoundPower said on 5/Mar/07
Yeah, he's about 5'10". I saw that epidode the other day, and he was taller than her. I'd say 5'10"
Ben said on 5/Mar/07
Honestly I think he's about 5'10". I remember an episode in season 1 when they went to Jackie's cabin, and he stood next to Donna with just socks on, she had snow boots on, and he was taller than her. I'd say he's 5'10" with no shoes on, and usually about 6'-6'1" in most shots with his boots on.
Bombay Rocker said on 21/Feb/07
He can look 5 feet 9 without lifts and shoes so this listing is about right but i saw a pic which was taken in 1998 of the 70's cast where he is standing next to ashton and he is shorter by 3 inches. Since ashton looks about 5 feet 3.5 - 4 in shoes, that means he was 6 .05 inches in shoes.....huge lifts.
Hannah said on 27/Jan/07
My cousin went to high school with him but then he moved out to California. She said that when they knew each other he was about 5'11"
Alex said on 21/Dec/06
Laura Prepon is 5'10 so if he's taller than her then he's over 5'10. Laura looks a legit 5'10, she is a pretty tall girl. I don't think he's taller than her and Topher Grace is 5'11, not 6'0. I'd say he looks 5'9 though.
MD said on 20/Dec/06
Editor Rob, can you take a look at Danny, Wilmer Valderrama, and Topher Grace?
Steve R. said on 4/Dec/06
Thank you P@t for proving my point, but Topher isn't quite 5-11. He's 5-10½. And like you said Danny's atleast 2 inches shorter which proves my point. He's a little over 5-8.
Steve R. said on 29/Nov/06
Pictures can lie John and Jim, im telling you i've met the guy. And he's 5-8.5 at the very most.
Jim said on 20/Nov/06
Danny is the exact same height as her, if not taller. He is leaning while talking to her and you can see that his shoulders are a fair bit higher than hers.
Steve R. said on 20/Nov/06
Originally posted on Topher Grace page: I have met every that 70s show cast member, and Topher is 5-10.5. Im sick of the lift wearing Danny Masterson getting listed as 5-10 and 5-9. He is 5-8, maybe a little over if he's lucky, and he is always wearing lifts. Glenn who has seen him as well says he's 5-8.
said on 17/Aug/06
Harry im starting to think you're right.
Danny without his lifts: Click Here
I think he might be 5-8 (if that).
said on 11/Aug/06
John I actually think he's not even 5-9.
Proof: Click Here
said on 9/Aug/06
I saw people below talking about that 70s show "ski trip" episode. Laura Prepon (a well known 5-foot-10) stands beside Masterson. They are both in socks. I have the dvd and I took a screen shot to prove to you (my original thought) that Danny is 5-foot-9, shoeless.Click Here
He might be standing at a small lean, but his poofy hair still wouldn't make him as tall as Prepon.
Jack said on 27/Jun/06
I agree with Dominic. That episode where they visit Jackie's cabin Danny is taller than Prepon even with just his socks on.
John Doe said on 23/Jun/06
I would say no more then five nine. He is always wearing boots on that 70s show to make himself look taller. Id say close to six foot with his lifts, and five nine shoeless.
Dominic said on 23/Apr/06
He's 510 even. People say his cowboy boots make him taller than 5'10 Lauren Prepon, but thats not right. In one of the episodes the gang goes up to Jackie's cabin and Hyde starts flirting with Donna and they are both in socks. Danny is atleast a half an inch taller. So if Danny is only 5'9 Lauren Prepon is only 5'8.5 which she certainly is not.
said on 7/Apr/06Click Here
He's not over 5'9 if Ashton Kutcher is 6'2.
Dominic said on 12/Mar/06
He's taller than Laura Prepon... I'd say you could put him at an even 5'10.
Avner said on 4/Feb/06
On the show, Masterson's character, "Hyde" usually wears boots with heels of about 2 inches. Just thought i'd throw that out there.
I7 said on 1/Jan/06
On 70s show, as "C" said he looks even taller then Laura Prepon(5ft10) and looks to be on the same height as Topher (6ft)
C said on 4/Nov/05
Does this guy wear lifts? He looks about 5'11'' on That 70's Show. He looks only about a inch shorter than Kurtwood Smith when they are scenes together.
MD said on 8/Oct/05
But, knowing that Wilmer V. (costar) is clearly under 5'-8", and knowing that Danny is (at most) 1" taller than Wilmer (and Danny is usually in boots and Wilmer is not), shouldn't Danny now be listed at 5'-9"? Personally, I think the guy is a little over 5'-8" barefoot, but I think even 5'9" is being a little generous but at least more realistic.
MD said on 29/Sep/05
He's definitely not under 5'8", Huff, that much we can be sure of.
Huff said on 29/Sep/05
Damn that's surprising, the pictures address that J. posted of Danny M. and B. Phillips; it says she
shadow said on 18/Apr/05
havn't met him personaly, but this looks close, if anything a couple cm shorter, definately a solid 5'9 don't know if I would be quick to give him 5'10. i say 176 -177 cm. He always wear boots with bigger heels then topher which makes him look almost the same size, topher just wears dressy shoes with no heals on them.
