5’9, but this listing is absolute max I’d give him.

Riz Ahmed isn't 5'7 flat though, he's almost 5'8. I agree that pic is a bit suspect though, and it definitely looks in that pic like Diego would be closer to 5'8 if he wasn't tiptoeing. The camera angle does give Riz an advantage though I think

Why does he even tiptoe like that lol? No one is going to be like "wow, he's so tall!!" and it clearly isn't for comedic effect either. Wouldn't it be more practical to just buy shoe lifts or maybe even tiptoeing *inside* the shoe so that it becomes less obvious?

Also, what the hell is going on here?

Usually, the difference is a lot bigger

I'm usually very averse to users that theorize that celebs use lifts and then base their estimates on that, but I genuinely wouldn't be surprised if this guy is 5'8-range and uses lifts to appear taller. Not going to base my vote on that though

As mentioned by another user, this guy tiptoes frequently in his pictures. Here he is alongside of 5’7” Riz Ahmed: Click Here

I’d say he is about 5’7”

He looks 5ft9 flat to me

Why the upgrade?
Editor Rob
Been looking at some more star wars and feel Luna has a chance at measuring 176
John (180 cm) said on 2/May/18
Luna is wearing lifts, so I think this listing is correct

I should say that Mikkelsen has a tendency to bend his leg in publicity photos standing with others. He can probably lose at least an inch standing that way.
Animus said on 10/Dec/17
He looked as tall as Mads Mikkelsen at a premiere for "Rogue One"... He must be a lift-wearer.

I saw this guy tip-toeing while promoting Blood Father with Mel Gibson and it turns out, it wasn't a one time thing. We got another Jeremy Piven as he was at it again at the Golden Globes, even with a man comfortably shorter than him: Click Here
Editor Rob
yes, this is how some people like Jeffrey Coombs and Milo Ventimiglia stand, Foot rising.

he does do it quite a lot, I guess wants to look taller in photos...
Tom said on 7/Aug/17
can claim 5'10"
capt. obvious said on 3/Aug/17
well its because he has a short person's face (imo)

He looks 5'9 to me. Very charismatic in Rogue One. By the way great movie and one of my favourite Star Wars movies.
Lily said on 26/Dec/16
I believe he's 5'10 when drawn up to full height - look at him in Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, Romola Garai is a definite 5'8" and a half at least (I've seen her in person). They have scenes together where they are barefoot and he looks visibly taller than her. Plus in two inch heels (looking at her shoes in dance scenes and comparing to my own 1.25 inch heels for a visual measure) she was almost the same height as him, maybe half an inch taller at most.

Which makes him, yes, 5'10" or at least very close. He's skinny so he looks on the tall side, but in his movies before Rogue One he tended to slouch, that makes people look shorter. If it wasn't for seeing him with Garai I'd have thought he was only 5'8" myself.

I saw ROGUE ONE yesterday & gotta say that it was an AWESOME experience - definitely my favourite & the best of all the Star Wars movies. I loved all the main cast (Felicity Jones, Luna, Yen, Ahmed & Jiang Weng), though I would have preferred an even bigger role for Mikkelsen (just love that actor). On the excellent Captain Cassian Andor (much edgier & a way better than boring Captain Han Solo), I would guess his height as anywhere between 174 and 177 cm (5 ft 8.5 - 5 ft 9.5) inclusive.

And merry Christmas everybody!! :-)
Rent said on 24/Dec/16
He really doesn't look more than 5'9" tops, but that so strange than on this photo of all the cast added by Steve about Rogue One promotion he looks so close of Forest Whitaker, who's suppose to be at 6'2" (and he seems to be...). Maybe a strange visual effect due to the angle photo, or Luna wears very solid lifts! And he could to be right, his legs has strange posture. Sometimes, we have really need to see some people in true life to guess what are their heights! And to do this, we have Rob, thanks buddy, for your so strange but so funny (part of your?) job! ^^
Editor Rob
at times he can pull off a taller than 5ft 9 look, other times I think about 5ft 9 seems an ok fit for him.
Matt said on 16/Dec/16
He looked a solid 174cm 5'8.5 in rogue one
Steve said on 15/Dec/16
Probably wearing lifts, but looks the same height as Tudyk here. Even Whitaker isn't that far off.

Also I think its time to add Rogue One to his credits! Fantastic film.

I just watched the SW Rogue One trailer and, is Diego slightly less than average height? According to the current listing, he is about average, but based on some evidence of posted photos, he actually looks closer to 173-174cm. So I'm going to guess 174cm for now.
Tides said on 14/Nov/15
Rofl... He's clearly the same height as 5'8" Sean Penn and shorter than a 5'10" (or less) Matt Damon, 5'9" is too much for him.
enrique said on 20/Jul/14
The downgrade was mandatory with this guy. I always believed he was nothing over 5'9"
Hola said on 27/Nov/13
Rob: Are you sure this guy doesn't need a downgrade, heres a few pics with actors whose height you'd probably have to change if he really does stand 176 cm.

With 5'8 listed Sean Penn: Click Here
With 5'5.5 listed Emile Hirsch: Click Here

Something is afoot.
Editor Rob
if he stands up well I think he's taller than penn is. 175 might be better than 6 though!
MD said on 18/Nov/13
With Matt Damon, who Rob is even coming around to the fact is not a full 5'10":

Hola said on 14/Nov/13
I think he and Bernal might need solid downgrades. Bernal is probably 5'5-5'5.5 and Luna is somewhere around 5'8 and a bit, they're Mexican, so their heights do not stand out as sorely as they would in the american movie scene.

I'm gonna guess 5'8 and '2-inching' it here.
da_truth said on 1/Dec/12
in Contraband, if Marky Mark is 5'7" (not 5'8")...
then this guy was about the same height, but assuming Marky Mark wears lifts...Diego looks more 5'8"-ish
Johnnyfive said on 16/Nov/12
Looks 5'11 next to his fellow actor pal Gael Garcia Bernal, especialy in Rudo y Cursi. I thought he wss pushing 6 feet in that movie.
Sirgerry said on 8/Nov/12
I used to work in entertainment in Mexico, met him twice, I'm 5 9 ish, no way heis 176 cm
Mr. Tempus said on 8/Sep/11
5'9.25 seems right, but he is skinny and has bad posture, so he tends to look shorter
Brian67 said on 28/Nov/10
I saw him in a movie with Kevin Costner. He looks like a 6 footer. He probably wore lifts.
odessa said on 30/May/09
maybe he really is tall but looks small on screen because of his posture
Josh said on 16/Jan/09
5'9.25 is right.
Mr. R said on 28/Dec/08
I just saw Milk, and he does not seem taller than Sean Penn. Hard to tell tho because his posture is bad.
TOny said on 26/Dec/08
In "The terminal" he looks about 1 inch and a half shorter than Tom Hanks, who is six feet tall. If you see de movie, you'll notice that in several scenes when they are standing together, diego is hunching, probably as a part of his role in the film.
Jane doe said on 22/Jan/08
that sounds about right because in the terminal he is a few inches taller then zeta jones standing less then a foot away and she was in heels.
Jeff said on 3/Jan/08
When I saw him on Nicotina I thought he looked a good 6 feet. But then he looked a bit shorter in The Terminal. It must be an illusinary height thing. I'd say definitely 5'9" - 5'10" range.
Bailey said on 8/Feb/07
I Seen Him Once And We Talked For A Long Time And He's Tall He He Is 5'9" Or 5;10" But Does It Matter How Tall He Is He Is So Funny And Cute. He's A Nice Guy.
Random Person said on 22/May/06
I personally believe Gael Garcia Bernal is 5'5 and a half. Anyone who has seen Y Tu Mama Tambien would have noticed Diego Luna was roughly 2 inches taller, possibly 3. So I'm guessing he's 5'8 and a half. The fact that he is slim also gives the illusion of being 5'9...but who knows
Kim said on 30/Mar/06
If you see him in The Terminal next to Tom Hanks (6'0.25"), he only looks a couple of inches shorter so 5'9" - 5'10" is probably about right.
trueheight said on 17/Mar/06
c'mon. before he made it big, he was listed as 5'8 and its very accurate compared to Garcia Bernal in Y Tu Mama Tambien, he's 2in above. He just doesn't look like a 5'10er, not by a longshot
Saz said on 15/Mar/06
Oh bless, if he thinks he's 5'10" and he's happy with that then we'll just take his word for it. It's not really doing anyone any harm if he's a wee bit smaller, unless he goes on a dating website and exaggerates his height slightly and a load of tall women get disappointed when they realise he's only 5'9", but let's face it, he probably doesn't need to do that.
AJ said on 24/Jan/06
I talked to him in california on one of his movie sets and he is about 5inches taller than me i am 5"5 and he told me and showed me on the height meter on set.
Farah said on 7/Jan/06
In Editor Rob's linked picture, Romola Garai's tip toeing, so if she's 5'8", 5'10" seems about right.
Anonymous said on 1/Jan/06
he's 5'9". he's only a bit taller than romola garai in havana nights. just barelly taller, and she's 5'8". anything taller than 5'9" is ridiculous.
Josh said on 18/Dec/05
I have visited mexico many times because i Have cousins there in oe of my visits I saw him in a Big Department store he is in the 5'9 range (175cm) maybe 5'9 1/2 but with shoes on , barefoot definetly 5'9.
Suzy said on 17/Dec/05
He is definetly 5'9-5'10. Last year I saw him at the grove in la. I stood right next to him and he was at least 5 inches taller. (I'm 5'4)
12w said on 29/Aug/05
No way. He's maybe a couple inches taller than Gael. Which would put him at 5'8 tops.
jj said on 17/May/05
ha. well i saw both these dudes at lunch today and i can safely say that diego is a fair bit taller than gael. from what it looked like anyway. shorter than me though, and i'm 5'10. but 5'9 for sure. only just.
