Looked 5’10”-ish in Powder Blue opposite 5’6” Jessica Biel.

I think 5ft11 3/8 is a good mark for him, halfway between 5ft11 1/4 and 1/2, he definitely looks like a tall-ish guy for his ectomorph appearance.

Maybe an upgrade to 5'11.5?
I think he can pull it off
Uncle Paul said on 5/Sep/22
Rob, how tall would you say for Les Miserables lyricist Herbert Kretzmer? He's in his late 80s here, my guess would be 5'11", which, I think, would translate to 6'1" or 6'2" as a young man. What do you think?

Yes, you'd expect at his peak he might clear 6ft 1

I noticed that Eddie appeared in both Elizabeth - The Golden Years and Elizabeth I, with Helen Mirren playing the Queen as opposed to Cate Blanchett in the former.

Yes the first brother doesn't seem under 6ft 1 and the other brother at least 6ft 2, just from those photos.

Redmayne is one of those actors who give the impression of being taller like Alex Hassell.
181cm is the lowest I can think of for him.

Same height as cumberbatch or just a tad bit taller

Thin bones make him look taller

Similar height to vin diesel

At least 183.5-184 out of bed

Can’t wait for fantastic beasts 3!

I’ve heard Johnny Depp won’t be in it tho
Johno said on 22/Sep/21
And I can't see him looking taller than Benedict Cumberbatch. He is a smidge shorter.

Not below 5'11 1/2 and pull off look 6'0 with Tom Hiddleston and Jamie Dornan. Solid 182cm in real i wouldn't doubt it.
Genau said on 2/Feb/21
slim 6'1 I dont agree 5ft11 5/8 at his low is a joke in my eyes his hairstyle adds height 5ft11 1/8 or 5ft11 1/4 at his low not 5ft11 5/8 however 5ft11 1/2 listing is arguable in my eyes

When Redmayne standing tall look nothing over 1.5" max shorter than 6'1 1/2 Hugh Jackman. Also if Luke Evans is a comfort 6'0 then Redmayne is 6'0.

Click Here Rob how tall do you think the guys who posed next to eddie ?
Editor Rob
Could be 2.5-3 inches, depends how much posture is lost
Gr?sse said on 26/Aug/19
This guy is legit 6ft, for a couple of months I was stood next to him while he was buying coffee. Deceptive on screen, looks slighter but he was wearing sneakers each time. Definitely the real 183cm.
Dream said on 18/Jul/19
Strange, he does look 184 cm next to a heel wearing Frida G.

I think 5’11 1/2” would be much better.
179cm guy said on 3/Jun/19
Rob, I think that if you're adamant about keeping Cumberbatch listed at 5'11.5, it's only fair that you list Eddie at that height too. Eddie has looser posture but I think that he has a better chance of pulling off 182 range than Cumberbatch as seen in his photo next to 6'1 Frida G. ( Click Here )
Editor Rob
it may well turn out to be a fair figure for Eddie.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/May/19
In The Good Shepard he definitely looked a good 2in taller than Matt Damon
179cm guy said on 7/May/19
Eddie Redmayne (5'11.25-11.5)
Benedict Cumberbatch (5'11.25-11.5)
Peter Capaldi (5'11.5-11.75)
Matt Smith (5'11.5-11.75)

Redmayne and Smith have more up and down posture than Cumberbatch and Capaldi who tend to stand rather erect but these are the ranges that I think they'd fall under. I don't think that Cumberbatch edges out Redmayne at all.
Allan said on 23/Dec/18
Wouldn't be surprised if he's a notch more, he looks lanky as hell. Granted, the thin frame the lad's packing can give an illusion of a 6 footer or just slightly under.
Oliver said on 20/Dec/18

Rob,considering Eddie is 181cm,how did he pull off looking nearly the same height as 185cm Frida.G
in heels? It's strange.
(Frida isn't less than 185cm though as she always looks the same height as Karlie)
Thank you.

There is a chance of 182 for Eddie, it's not ruled out as at times he can seem it..

He and andrew garfield are the same height with non heeled shoes so 5'10 flat or 178.0cm. With tom hiddlestone who's 6'1, he's 3 inches or a bit more off.
Yang (5ft 8 Chinese men) said on 8/Nov/18
Solid 5footer 11 tall aka 180cm IMO but he did claim that his height is 6footer and half... You see lots of 5 footer 9 actors and actresses do claim 5ftooter 10 while my height range 5footer 8 actors and actresses like Julia Roberts did claim 5footer 9 once...
BTW, His surname is priceless.
andersenmiller said on 9/Oct/18
looks a shade under 5'11. 5'10.5 at lowest.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Jul/18
If he is 180cm then Cumberbatch is also 180cm and David Beckham would be 179.3cm. From i look at him with Jimmy Fallon was level head to head and eye to eye.

180 cm in my opinion

No way is he over 6'

Eddie is under 6'0 for sure, but that photo does not display their height difference very well. Redmayne is a standing fair bit behind Hiddleston in that photo, making him look 0.5-1 inch shorter than he really is
Dejavu said on 24/May/18
Maybe it’s the posture but he could look 3 inches or more shorter than Tom Hiddleston. He looks nothing above 5’11 next to him.
BT said on 21/May/18
I'd argue Cumberbatch and Redmayne could be more or less the same height. They were both with Bryan Cranston on the Graham Norton show, from that I'd say Eddie could possibly even be the taller of the two, by the slightest of margins... If 5'11.5 is OK for Benedict, it is for Eddie as well. In reality I think they both fall into the "around 181 cm" category.
Vexacus said on 14/Mar/18

Mark(5'9.5 said on 27/Sep/17
Of course he isn't a full 6'0", but he can appear so close to it.

I'd be fine with an 5'11.5" listing for Redmayne.

Mark(5'9.5 said on 10/Sep/17
Actually, he can look 183 cm in Fantastic Beasts. He some times looks taller than Cumberbatch. Maybe 5'11.5" would be better.

184 cm would be a bit insane as that would put Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Chris Pine, Henry Cavill, and John Cena at 6'1.5"-6'1.75".

I'm sure Eddie would clear 6'0" in the morning without question.

@Slim you'd likely edge out Eddie though

I agree, eddies skinny body makes him look 6'1"+

He can seem taller than a guy like DiCaprio because he's skinnier, but, for all intents and purposes, they are the same height.
Animus said on 7/Sep/17
184cm for this guy is insane. He doesn't even seem to be a weak six-footer, let alone a strong one. As far as I can tell he's somewhere in the neighbourhood of 181cm.

181.61(5'11.5") and 182,3 or 4 range in the morning, it'd suit him very well. I guess his measurement was in an inch worth of shoe, or he may measure that in mornings.....
Mark(5'9.5 said on 23/Aug/17
5'11.5" would really suit Redmayne.

I'm not surprised he gets a lot of 6'0" listings.

I don't he was lower than 5'11.5" Benedict Cumberbatch, they were similar or exactly the same height.

It would fit the piece in the puzzle better imo, as this guy edged out Ezra Miller, noticeably. Keep in mind Ezra is a boot wearer, while Eddie ain't.

He's 181 range and probably the 184 measurement is in dress shoe

All of a sudden his height is listed at 184cm on google, whereas previously it was down at 180 - quite a jump don't you think? I'd be inclined to put him firmly in the middle at around 182. He often looks quite tall when standing alone but that could be down to his frame and build as he often looks a lot smaller when stood with taller actors.
Hans Meiser said on 26/Mar/17
Listed as both 5'11 and 6'0.5. wtf
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Mar/17
Eddie's a nice guy (oh, blast! That sounds very 'Reservoir Dog-esque' and it wasn't meant to!)
Anyhow, I saw him fairly recently on 'Ellen' and he looked tall and skinny! He probably came over as a bit taller because of his frame-size. He played an animal noise-based guessing game with her and I thought he was a good sport!
I'll give Eddie 5ft11.5!
HonestSlovene said on 28/Feb/17
He is 5'11" more or less, could swing a quarter of an inch both ways tbh.
Realist said on 21/Feb/17
He looked atleast 181 or 182 in fantastic beasts but he's like 150 so being thin can make you look 2 inches taller. And that other guy looked 5'5 to his 5'11.
Chris said on 17/Feb/17
Rob he really looks like a strong 6ft, was a full inch taller than David Beckham and almost always stand tall next 6ft 6'1 celebrities. Upgrade? no?

This listing is fine. No need for a downgrade.

I did enjoy Redmayne's role as Newt Scamander. I hope he could make a cameo in the next sequel of Fantastic Beasts.

I'm 181cm and this guy looks taller than me, and in photos with Tom Sturridge (5'10") he looks closer to six foot. Would you consider and upgrade?
Mark(5'9.25 said on 22/Nov/16
I watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Actually, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) tends to slouch a lot.

Actually, Eddie isn't shorter. There was something fishy about Ezra Miller's footwear.

Johno said on 20/Nov/16
Yeh, Ezra Miller does have the slight edge on Eddie but Eddie has the slight edge on Beckham.
Tim said on 19/Nov/16
Just watched Fantastic Beasts and he looked no taller than 5"10 Colin Farrell. They didn't have much time where they were both standing together and it's possible that Redmayne was slouching or Farrell was made to look taller, but I definitely didn't pick Redmayne for tall, he looked average.
Than said on 15/Nov/16
I just watched the red carpet premiere of Fantastic Beasts in London and Eddie looked shorter than Ezra Miller who is also listed as 1.80cm
Aaron Zamora said on 14/Nov/16
How tall does Eddie claim, Rob? He's pretty tall he looks much taller than most people like Ellen degeneres for example and he's a guy with a very bad posture. I believe he's taller than this listing.

To me it looks like Eddie could be ever so slightly taller, without knowing if Eddie has a bit more footwear or not. Overall, around 5'11.25 for both is fair I think.

No. He doesn't look shorter than cumberbatch. Redmayne slouch alot with him, if redmayne is 5'11.25 then cumberbatch at most the same height

with poor posture Eddie probably can look 5ft 10, although in that infographic having James McAvoy at 5ft 6 is a bit of low ball when he's over 2 inches taller than radcliffe in reality.

Not a great angle as Eddie is leaning toward the camera, but something to add to the pile. With 6'0" Chris Evans at the Oscars, last night:

If he is 5'9 then Jamie Dornan is 5'7 which means Dakota Johnson is 5'4 which is obviously not the case.
Andrew said on 14/Jan/16
Just to qualify my previous post. If you saw the Golden Globes, Redmayne was on shortly before DiCaprio, nobody moved the mike. There is a clear height advantage at the mike with Leo. I'm guessing Leo is 2 inches or so taller.Leo is at best 5'11, which would leave Redmayne around 5'9 at the most, but he's painfully thin which makes him an illusionist before a camera.
Andrew said on 14/Jan/16
175cm tops
Stormtrooper JB-007 said on 12/Jan/16
5'11 next to Matt Damon in that movie everyone forgot about
Steve said on 7/Jan/16
This guy is nothing more then 178cm. Most celeb are adding to their length in all stats.
Jack said on 27/Dec/15
I thought he was a strong six footer like 6'- 6'0.5. But he"s really 5'11 to 5'11.5 maybe 6' out of bed. His skinny frame makes him look taller!

Not so fast MD! I explain more on Matt Smith's page but here's the truncated version:

Both guys with 6' Douglas Booth (as you can see Matt has much better posture here):

Not enough evidence here to outright downgrade Matt. What you're seeing here is just the normal fluctuations that angles/distance/cameras can have on our perceptions of guys all within an inch of the each other's height.
MD said on 7/Jul/15
He's not taller than Redmayne, though, and Redmayne isn't taller than listed.
MD said on 5/Jul/15

Here he is with 6'0" Douglas Booth:

And, here he is with Matt Smith in literally same styled shoes:

Is Matt Smith shorter than currently listed, or do you think Eddie is 5'11.5"? I don't think Booth is standing as high as he could in the first shot, so I'm leaning toward it being more likely that Redmayne and Smith are both a flat 5'11", or maybe Eddie is what he's listed and Matt is a quarter-inch less? Just seems to me that Matt is probably the shortest of the three.
Editor Rob
Smith's posture goes up and down like a bride's nightie.

In person though, I'd be surprised if he was only 5ft 11, I thought he was over it.

There are a lot of pictures of Jamie Dornan and Eddir Redmayne. There is definitely more than a .5" difference between them. At least one of the them is mislisted.

@Height183, I'm not thinking much, either way. I can see just as good an argument for a flat 5'11" as 5'11.25". I'm just saying I don't think the pictures you show necessarily show a "plain 5'11" is all.
Height183 said on 9/May/15
I mean there is nothing wrong if you're thinking he is 5'11.25'' MD, but since Beckham is like 179 - 180cm, I don't think Eddie is anything more than a decent 5'11''
MD said on 8/May/15
@Height183, if anything those photos speak to this current listing. I can see an argument made for a flat 5'11", but I'm not sure those pictures show that.
Height183 said on 7/May/15
He looks nothing more than a plain 5'11'' with David Beckham

181-182cm range is a good call. Maybe a tad shorter than Benedict Cumberbatch.
Tania said on 4/Mar/15
Rob, I think he'd really like everyone to forget that he was in Jupiter Ascending :P
RoDawg said on 2/Mar/15
He consistently looks closer to 6 foot in shoes. I think 5'11.25 is his lowest possible barefoot height with 5'11.5 being more likely. Either way, you're splitting hairs with 1/4 of an inch so this is pretty spot on

Arch Stanton said on 1/Mar/15
He's losing weight for a role Mr. R, at the moment he's already looking unhealthily skinny and he still has more to lose!!
Mr. R said on 26/Feb/15
He walked by me a few months ago when I went to a screening. This is pretty close. But he is SO skinny! (Was really hoping for Michael Keaton to win though.)
Jake 6ft0.5 said on 24/Feb/15
His body frame looks tiny
Arch Stanton said on 23/Feb/15
Rob can you add The Theory of Everything to the top of the list. A well-deserved Oscar! Glad he won it, even though Michael Keaton was great as well.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Feb/15
Delighted with his win last night!
MD said on 23/Feb/15
Just looking through Oscar pictures, and he has this REALLY bad habit when taking photos of hunching his back and leaning into the camera. He does it in just about every picture, so it's really hard to judge his height up against anyone. I'm not sure if it would lose him any significant height in that pose if you were with him in person, but on the camera end of things with the right angle it can sometimes look like a significant reduction in height. It's enough of a stance where I could see some people believing just viewing pictures that he could be 6'0" if he straightened up. That seems highly unlikely, but I could see where some could make that mistake.
Editor Rob
to be fair, I think 181 for Eddie might be a better fit.
Arch Stanton said on 13/Feb/15
Dunno, he looked really skinny. I really do hope he wins the Oscar though, he was fantastic as Hawking.
MD said on 12/Feb/15
He's 5'11". Anyway, unrelated question, but does anyone know how much he was supposed to have weighed before his performance in The Theory of Everything? I've seen media mentions that he lost quite a bit of weight, which I find pretty amazing seeing as how he's already so thin, but have never seen a published weight either before or after his transformation.
Sam said on 9/Jan/15
Looks about an inch under Benedict Cumberbatch so this is an accurate listing I think.
heightinspector4fun said on 5/Jan/15
have you seen him next to jamie dornan on ice bucket challenge or on several photos ? this guy towers him easy especially on ice buc- challenge where jamie is on sneakers and eddie is barefoot . I believe Eddie's height is spot on but jamie definetely needs a downgrade
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jan/15
"Eddie Redmayne's height is 5ft 11¼in (181cm)"

Can pass for 6ft
MD said on 2/Jan/15
There is no way he was taller than Jimmy Fallon, because he was actually a bit shorter than Seth Myers (whose show is after Jimmy's, BTW) who is not more than 5'11", himself.

He's a really thinnly built guy; I wouldn't guess him much over 150lbs. This might explain why he can look taller. But, he was shorter than 5'11" Seth and AT LEAST a good inch shorter than Benedict Cumberbatch.
Nette said on 31/Dec/14
I didn't think this guy wasn't all that tall myself, the average height guy, until I saw him on Jimmy Fallon, the tonight show. He's a little taller than Jimmy who stands 6 foot tall. He looks 6 foot 1. I did not know he's was 32 years old I thought he was 24 or 25 years old. Thirty years old's look very young these day, that is the reason why back than on shows like head of the class they try to pass them off as teenagers, but this guy looks younger than those people do.
sweetpea said on 11/Dec/14
A soild 180cm and a hot person I like you a lot.
carver said on 10/Dec/14
A solid 180cm
bobbbyyyy said on 5/Sep/14
hmm i would say his 179.5cm. just because he was standing next to a 6ft dude and he looked over one inch away so yh.
SaveUsY2J said on 27/Aug/14
@Realist- There is absolutely no way Garfield is as low as 177cm.
Realist said on 26/Aug/14
5'11.25 atleast he is a good over an inch over Garfield who is 177 or so this guy is probably 5'11.5 he made Logan Lerman look like a little man.
lucy said on 14/Jun/14
I honestly think he could a little taller than that. 181/182cm maybe, in Les Mis he looked a full head taller than Amanda Seyfried (159cm) and not significantly shorter than Hugh Jackman (188cm).

About the pic with Hiddleston and Deacon, Tom's legs are much apart than Eddie's and Adam's

MD said on 19/Mar/14
Between the photo I posted of him with Dan Stevens, and then this one with Will Poulter, who is even shifted kind of awkwardly:

...I'm of the mind that he's listed very appropriately. He is not almost six foot.
Anon183cm said on 10/Mar/14
I am convinced he is over a flat 5'11, more like 5'11.5 or 6'0 at a push.
MD said on 11/Feb/14
Here he is with 6'0" Dan Stevens:

5'11" is a pretty good listing.
The Horse of FUNK said on 10/Jan/14
Never would have guessed 5'11". Caught The Good Shepherd on TV and he made Matt Damon look short. Must've been done deliberately for character purposes.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Aug/13
Looks about right, amazed he is 31, looks nearer 21 to me, I thought he was a good 4 or 5 years younger than me!
cole said on 8/Aug/13
He is 180 cm range for sure.
Mizzie said on 5/Aug/13
Hugh Jackman was talking about having to carry him in Les Mis during the sewer scene and he said something around 6'2. That might he giving a little much though.
maria said on 8/May/13
I'd guess him at a fraction under 6' having seen him in the flesh (not right up as didn't wish to appear a stalker!)I am 5 10 and he was taller than me but very slender. Tom Hiddleston is taller and broader and in photos of them together looks 2" taller at least. But Eddie does have a cute way of posing wonkily so hard to be accurate.
Emil said on 4/Mar/13
He looked 6'1 in Powder Blue and in the Good Shepherd. Maybe just due to perspective or good posture
SAK said on 5/Feb/13
He is a weak 5f11.

Shocked101 said on 2/Feb/13
Are you guys nuts??? Have you seen him standing next to dammon in the good Shepard!.? That makes dammon 5'6-5,7 as he is a clear 3-4 inches. 6ft - 6'1 is this guys height. I'm bang on 5'9 and I am smaller then everyone always unless I go down to china town but now even the youngers ones are coming in taller then me. For anyone to say dammon is shorter than me and gets all the leading men parts... Just not possible, he is 5,10 and this lad is min 6ft
Lo sgozzatore said on 12/Dec/12
Yeah, he looks more 5'10.5 next to Jackman and Baron Cohen! 5'11 is not impossible though
Hob said on 28/Jul/12
pretty accurate listing. he always looks a solid 5'10.5 so could be 5'11
