He’s not 5’7 like googles says but he looks taller than 5’4. Somewhere in between I’d say.
Tiemo said on 24/Aug/18
It’s all perspective Lee, some pictures he looks barely taller than her and some pictures he towers her. It all depends on the camera angle. I don’t think he’s 5’4 I’m still sticking to my thought a weak 5’6 like he’s claimed multiple times
lee168cm said on 21/Jul/18
He clearly isn't 5ft 6 tiemo Avril looks around his height in small heels he's 5ft 4 at best
Tiemo said on 7/Jun/18
Here is my educated guesses.

Deryck-5’6
Dave-5’7.5
Tom-5’8
Cone-5’11 maybe 6’0
Frank-5’6
Stevo-5’9 maybe 5’10

Deryck has said more than once in different interviews that he’s 5’6 and Cone said claimed both 5’11 and 6’0. Frank is exactly the same height as Deryck. In this picture of Deryck and Dave standing next to each other Dave looked only about an inch taller. And Tom looks about an inch taller than Dave. Steve looks about 1 or 2 inches shorter than cone. So that’s my thought out guesses on their heights. Plus Deryck replied to me on an Instagram post saying all of them except Cone are in the 5’6-5’8 area so yeah, the. He called Cone tall. So there’s my evidence.
Tiemo said on 7/Jun/18
I know he’s not that tall but he definitely doesn’t seem to be 5’4 short. He seems like a 5’6 guy and he’s claimed to be 5’6 more than once in interviews. Plus he replied to me on Instagram saying that everyone in the band but Cone (the bass player) is between 5’6-5’8. He doesn’t seem like the kind of guy to lie about his height either so I’ll go with 5’6. He’s definitely not 5’7 though like what google says but google seems to give celebrities an extra inch or five a lot.

Well if his height is 163 cm then his wife is not 180 cm? If she's 180 cm then she might be 190 cm in heels?
Lee said on 8/Jun/16
Rob do you think his wife ari is 6' tall? Although in those ridiculous heels she can look a lot taller than him. From pics I'd say 5'9" and 6'2ish in heels
Arch Stanton said on 8/Jun/13
Funny thing is that the article says he's 5 ft 7. LOL

He looks shocking here in every way. Stood next to a supposed 6 ft girl in massive wedges!!
Shaun said on 12/Sep/12
5'4" ish is about right, not much taller than Avril.
timjim said on 6/Sep/11
Deryck whibley is 5'11, and cone is 6'4. get it right.
mr. error said on 4/Feb/11
avril is 158cm and deryck is a bit taller so i think he is 163cm
The Person said on 8/Jul/09
Avril is 5'3. Deryck is 5'5. Cone is 5'11. Dave is 5'8.5. Steve-o is 6'.
The Dutchguy said on 18/May/09
Kev, Cone is 6' flat ;)
Bouncer said on 26/Dec/08
Don't think much taller than 5'4 - 5'4.5 tops. 5'5 is pushing it. He also looked only a few inches taller than avril all the time.
The dude said on 10/Dec/08
Met him backstage after a concert in Tampa (Thanks Steve for the passes!). Made my 5'9" (flat footed) self, feel tall. I towered over him. He must have been 5'4-5'5 tops.
Zoe said on 26/Oct/08
Well I am a girl and I have a thing for shorter guys. Deryck is probably 5'4" tall flat out without shoes on. He is quite adorable. Gleen is bending sideways, if he was standing straight in this picture the 4 inch different would be more evident...
kev said on 18/Jun/08
deryck is exactly 5'5''. But all the things make him looks taller , you know, his hair and his big shoes. I have the same ''problem than him, I'M 14 years old know and i'm just 5'1''. So i guess i always be short and have in around of 5'5'' or 5'6'' top as an adult . When i go to school and see the people are younger than me, are taller of 3-4 inches. that really impress me, and that's how i know that i'm very short xd. And i use the spike hair like deryck, and i have big shoes. ..For finish, the other members are ; Stevo is 5'11'' , Cone is 6'3''.. it's hard to believe for cone but when you look attentive the pictures of sum 41 you'll see that cone is always using a position who make him look shorter. If he didn't use those positions, deryck would look more shorter than he is really.
Crush said on 31/May/08
Ann, i'm sure glenn didn't mean it that bad and he respect 5'4 guys aswell.
And i think it's not so bad to be 5'4 as a man compared to the girls, a lot girls LOVE shorter men because they see cuteness in them (but rarer the tall model ones), my personal experiences ;)
Ann said on 24/May/08
Glenn leve Deryck alone 'cause I'm his height and that even counts with shoes that give a lil height. i also admit that im only 18 and im the shortest one among my guy friends and im afriad that im going to get trampled all over. but Deryck makes me feel great about my height and I want to meet him.
glenn said on 1/May/08
me or him? lol.no,i think he had some sort of sneakers on.vans,converse.im not sure.would make sense since he looks so damn short next to a kind of short guy.
Sum 41 said on 30/Apr/08
Maybe glenn can us tell if he wore his "famous clown (platform) shoes"?
Heightdetective said on 27/Apr/08
The question is if he wore his famous clown shoes on this picture ;P
His hair style also gives him a little more height apperance
Dani said on 17/Apr/08
He has got to be 5'5. Next to Glenn he looks atleast 5'5. Also with many pics of Avril he looks atleast 5'5, my mom next to my best friend (who is 5'1) has around the same height differance. And he's not wearing clown shoes! Hahaha
sam said on 6/Mar/08
funny, something about his singing/music videos made me think he was like 6 foot! well musically speaking...
tara said on 3/Mar/08
without his spikes he looks bout.. like 5'5 or 5'6
nate said on 16/Feb/08
cone is not 5-9. its hard to believe but i think hes 6-3!
Anonymous said on 17/Jan/08
Eh, I think he might be shorter. This is a recent photo of him and Avril. She's wearing heels, and he's wearing his giant clown shoes:

hes about 5'4 5'5. Dave Baksh is around the range of 5'8-5'10.
hearts said on 26/Nov/07
yeah i think 5'4.5 is good and i think Cone ( the bassist ) is 5'9
monica said on 13/Oct/07
i met him and he's about an inch and a half shorter than me, and i'm 5'6 3/4"
6footKate said on 13/Oct/07
holy crap for just being 5'4 he has a huge square head
Cpt Crunch said on 11/Oct/07
looks about the same as Emilio Estevez next to Glenn. So 5-4.5 is good.
bruce_willis said on 8/Oct/07
looks atleast 5'5½ beside you
Josh said on 8/Oct/07
Wooo Cool Pic yeah 5'4 I think is right or maybe even a bit less he looks small in videos but I never thought he was that short , hes band is cool anyway.
Franco said on 7/Oct/07
@Glenn - what a waste of time...........get a real job man........LOOOOOOL j/k :D
doggieee said on 7/Oct/07
wow, someone who is way shorter than me, and I thought I was a short guy!
glenn said on 7/Oct/07
hi kaka.in new york city its easy.they all hang in the same areas.ive been doing this for 17 years.
kaka said on 7/Oct/07
hey glenn
i'm interested how you get to meet so many celebs?
Adam Brennon said on 6/Oct/07
I agree completely. The additional half inch is very generous.
anonymous said on 5/Oct/07
the very, very top i see derek is at 5ft4, no way more than that, closer to 5ft3
Franco said on 5/Oct/07
5'4 flat makes sense, maybe occasionally 5'4.5.

so 163-164cm is correct.
glenn said on 5/Oct/07
i think i read 5-6.and he did look 5-6.in some peoples pics.not with me.maybe,maybe 5-5.most likely 5-4.
Schnouzer Breath said on 5/Oct/07
Ommmm...6'1" maybe?? (he's slouching a little...)
Alex said on 5/Oct/07
Can look as short as 5'3-5'4.
OutBenchThis said on 4/Oct/07
I think he's probably more in the 5'3" range
HAAA said on 4/Oct/07
aww hes short but cute :P :]
Tommy Gunn said on 4/Oct/07
To be really honest I doubt that this guy is anything over 5ft 5in but hey height don't mean nothing at least to him. Maybe he's something closer to 5ft 4in on the button?
Cairo86 said on 4/Oct/07
Both players in the photo are leaning slightly. Glenn has smallish short hair. Deryck has more spiky hair. I say we conclude somewhere over 5ft4
UMMMM said on 4/Oct/07
In this picture he looks 3 inches shorter than you in this picture Glenn, but I don't see your footwear, anywhere between 5'4 and 5'5 I guess.
Joe Molina said on 9/Aug/07
For the people saying Whibley was 5'6'': Did you see his shoes? I've seen a lot of paparazzi photos of him and a lot of times he's wearing these really thick soled shoes, especially when he's with his wife, Avril Lavigne, who he doesn't look much taller then even with the thick soled shoes on.

Blender Magazine interview with Avril Lavigne: (Pg.2)
"She claims to be five feet one but looks littler; he's five feet four"

So I guess Avril is 5'1" and Deryck is 5'4".
Bombay Rocker said on 19/Jul/07
He probably is a full 5 feet 5....well, you cant make out a .5 inch difference unless you measure him but he doesnt seem like a person who gives a **** about height, if he has said 5 feet 5 then he probably is.
Jon Doe said on 1/May/07
Whoa I find it hard to believe he could ever reach 5'6, he seems 5'4ish to me.I mean just look at him every time you see him on t.v he comes up to peoples noses.
Kevin said on 16/Mar/07
see this next to avril many times, he is a little bit taller than her, 5'4,5 is good
UNK said on 22/Jan/07
No chance he is 5'6" or 5'7". 5'5" came out of his own mouth and most people think he is rounding up.
Martin Smith Lopez said on 21/Jan/07
yeah, Deryck is got to be about 5'6. I met him and Cone after their concert in NC, it was awesome..good times,buddy!!hehe
emma said on 22/Dec/06
jay, how is avril shorter than him by "quite a bit"? she's only like 1-2 inches shorter than him max as you can tell
JasonX said on 14/Dec/06
I've met him, he's about 5'6, 5'7
You see him and Avril Together, they both look so short when they pass over people. ^^
ThisGirl said on 1/Nov/06
Anonymous (3/Aug/05) - you CAN be taller/shorter than you say. A LOT of celebrities lie, and so do regular people. I, myself, was convinced since 7th grade (for 7 whole years) that I was 5'3." Every time I had to write down my height for any documents, and if people asked I told them 5'3"...
Well, just recently I got measured, turns out I'm actually 5'2".. a whole inch shorter than what I thought for years!
So yea, just because someone says they're a certain hight doesn't mean that they actually are.

At a point I even thought I was 5'4" since I figured maybe I grew a bit since 7th grade, plus I don't feel that short).

Lauren - How do you "tower over" somebody who is supposedly only two inches shorter than you? Oh gosh. Maybe you think you "tower," but obviously do not if you're 5'4."

Avril is about 5'2".. hDeryck appears about 2-3 inches taller, so he's probablhy around 5'4" give or take a half... so this is probably correct.

This pic proves that they're VERY close in height:

Ignore the hat, of course.
antron said on 4/Oct/06
He's 5'4" from what I can tell. Anonymous, in your picture 1) he looks taller 2)women tend to have longer legs proportionately, while men tend to have longer torsos proportionately so her legs looking longer is a moot point (though I don't thin her legs even look longer than his. A lot of people seem to state things about the photos they post that are fuzzy at best and completely false at worst.
Leah said on 26/Sep/06
UNK: Avril had never stated she was 5'1"

UNK said on 12/Jul/06
Interesting pics Anonymous - It looks like he has the advantage in shoe height and still only appears 3", at most, taller than Avril. I'd be surprised if he is tall than 5'4".

@Jay - "A very small frame" should make him look taller. Like it does for Depp.

Avril has said she's 5'1"... who knows maybe she downgrades or hasn't measured in years, but we know she ain't taller than 5'2"... and in Converse she isn't much shorter than Whibley.
Jay said on 19/Jun/06
I've met Deryck, he is my exact height, which is 5'4 1/2" no taller, no shorter. What makes him look so short is the fact that he has a very small frame. Avril is shorter than him by quite a bit and just as tiny, if not tinier in frame. Watch, their kids are going to be super tall!
Anonymous said on 18/Jun/06
In recent photo shoots, you can see Avril and Deryck both in regular sneakers, and she easily looks eye-to-eye with him. In fact, take a look at some of these photos.....her legs look longer, and she is slouching down:

What do you think?
A said on 1/Jun/06
Why would he be so OBVIOUS with his flatform shoes? There are so many illusive lifts and shoes available to celebrities like him.
piddle said on 3/Apr/06
In the pics that the second Anonymous posted Avril IS wearing heels. I've seen more of those pics before where I have seen a heel, and as a lady, I can tell from the way she is standing that she isn't wearing flats. That just isn't a flats posture! Those photos can't be used. And Avril does seem to be getting in to heels lately so we can't just assume she is wearing flats anymore.

Anyway, it's almost impossible to tell how tall he is because I've never seen a photo of the man without giant shoes on *shakes fist*
adrienne said on 26/Feb/06
wo...i take back what I said earlier.

After seeing those pictures linked to below, if avril is 5 feet zero, the deryck must be like 4 foot 10 or something because if he needs those humungus platform shoes just to raise him to the height of avril, he must be substantially shorter than 5 feet tall...ouch
adrienne said on 26/Feb/06
Avril is featured in the February 2006 issue of Harpers Bazaar Magazine. (Very end of the mag) I think she mentions that she's 5ft0inches. There is a picture of Avril alongside Deryck and although he is taller than her, he almost the same height. Thus I would put him at 5ft2inches...max of 5ft 4inches.

But hey, why does it matter? How tall are Michael J Fox or George Stephanopoulos ???

Deryck & Avril are cute as a couple...God Bless them! :--)
Lauren said on 15/Jan/06
I've met Deryck Whibley several times through the years, I'm 5'4, and I've always towered over him. He's at the most 5'2.
Phili said on 12/Nov/05
I know lots of people who have met him and they say they're 5'5" and taller by a little less than a inch. Which means that Deryck is probably 5'4" and a bit.
UNK said on 2/Nov/05
Judging from the many pics posted.... 5'5" is seeming like a stretch for this guy.
Some Guy said on 1/Nov/05
Well if Avril is 5'2". About 5'1/2" if you ask me. Then explain this. He looks really short in this pic? I dunno if he's 5 foot 5 anymore. Thank You.

What if he's small? though he's like 5'5'' he's taller than Avril, and no one can deny it!!!
th said on 5/Oct/05
yes that height is spot on! i stood next to him for about 5 mins when i met him... hes the exact same height as me... 5'5" so you can all stop your speculation
UNK said on 30/Sep/05
Good point Anonymous... I really can't picture her wearing more than a 2" heel... Whilbley has got to be closer to 5'3" than 5'5".
Anonymous said on 29/Sep/05
Even if Avril is wearing heels, look at the platforms on his shoes. Those have to be at least 3" and I doubt if she's wearing heels they're any bigger than that (otherwise it would be much more obvious that she's wearing heels).
UNK said on 29/Sep/05
There has to be heels on Avril's sandals. I know she usual doesn't wear heels, but Whibley can't be that short. There is no way she is more than 5'2", and Whibley's 5'5" listing can't be that inaccurate, could it?
Anonymous said on 28/Sep/05
I am convinced that Deryck is really no taller than Avril (hell, in a lot of pictures she appears taller than him...) In this picture, in which she is wearing sandals (which possibly have heels to it, although it does not appear so), and he is wearing massive platforms on his shoes, they appear the same height (also notice that her legs are more spread out than his, and she's leanign while he's standing up straight, and they still appear to be the same height):

UNK said on 6/Sep/05
KC - you say "It defeats the purpose". There is a very good chance that there is no purpose.... that Avril wears what ever shoes she wants with out a thought in her mind about Deryck's height. Not every one is obsessed with height. I really doubt that when Avril plans her outfit, she is thinking "hmmm, hom many inches shorter will I be than Deryck".

With that said, I would have to say that Deryck is shorter than 5'5". There is sooooo much information, and fan encounters, about Avril. She is 5'2" at best, and has called herself 5'1" more than once.
KC said on 5/Sep/05
It's not exactly an assumption, just an educated guess. If Whibley is wearing 3-inch-heel shoes (making him 3 inches taller), why would Avril wear hidden 3-inch heels (making him 3 inches shorter, back to where he was)? It defeats the purpose.
Whibley looks 1-2 inches taller than Avril, even with his high-rising shoes here:
http://www.isifa.com/functions/watermark/watermark.php?ifotonummer=11027994
http://www.isifa.com/functions/watermark/watermark.php?ifotonummer=11028002

In your pics, there looks to be about max 2 inches of difference. The second picture shows more difference, but you can't see their feet.
If Avril is really an inch taller than even what she claimed, then I think this guy looks max 5'4.
KC said on 7/Aug/05
Actually, I don't even think Avril's wearing hidden heels (cross out #2 in my last post). It wouldn't make sense for Whibley to wear obvious 3" shoes that everyone can see, while Avril, trying to look shorter than Whibley, is hiding a pair of 3" heels (that just defeats the purpose). I think the two have the same barefoot height (he, with 2" shoe advantage, looking max 2" taller).
Anonymous said on 4/Aug/05
In a recent magazine article, Avril was described as being "5'2" tops" which means she's probably a short 5'2"....in regards to Deryck, the more pictures I see of him (with clunky shoes) and Avril (in regular soled shoes/sandals), the more I think he can't be more than an inch or so taller than her, if at all.
Anonymous said on 18/Jul/05
In the few photos from isifa and alavigne, there's no evidence that Avril's wearing sandals. It might looks so from the front. Note that we couldn't see her feet at all or even from the back view.
Z2 said on 17/Jul/05
Here is a photo of 5'0"(in shoe)Avril Lavigne. My guess is that Deryck is about 5'4"(in shoe). Here is the photo: www.alavigne.org/gallery/displayimage.php?album=2&pos=5

But in this http://people.aol.com/people/articles/0,19736,1078019,00.html Avril sure makes Deryck look tall.

He is sooo sexy. I've heard he's 5'5ish, he looks pretty short. I saw him in concert 2 days ago and he looked kinda short to me. But he's still soo hot! LOVE YOU DERYCK
