I wouldntFHA surprise if he is 5'11

I would. Usually he never struggles to edge out 180cm guys. The lowest for this guy is 5ft11.5(182cm) i think. But with his build and posture he can pull off looking 6ft1 or close. I think the current height is reasonable.

I bet if you put him next to someone like Bruce Willis or Vin Diesel he'd be taller.

i dont think hes over 6'0. Doesnt look it most of the time

I saw and talkrd to him while boarding virgin air. Nicest guy ever! Amazingly i thought he was huge
In american history x : however im 5'10.5 he was eye level with me both had same shoes flats
Thraex said on 25/Jul/11
He could be 6ft out of bed at the very most, no more than 180 cm (5'11'') at night. In American history X he was listed as 5'10 1/2 on his criminal record page (or something like that), which I think is his actual height.
ali said on 23/Jul/11
he's 6 ft..He look physically imposing and 6 ft
Legend said on 18/Jul/11
haha he's not 6 feet at all...More like 5'10

Take a look at this behind the scenes footage from fight club! Leto and Norton look about the same height, even if Norton is slouching at bit. He gotta be 5'10, this video shows him bare foot and the official height should be changed.
Mr. Kaplan said on 30/Jun/11
Just because not all celebrities have military posture like Cruise, it doesn't mean they lose one inch.

Actually, trying to stand taller makes you shorter... true stuff.
Dominic said on 30/Jun/11
TBF, I would take Norton's public appearances with a grain of salt. He has terrible posture. Straightened out, I think he's a legit 6' flat and Im not talking out of bed either.
nasa said on 28/Jun/11
True height is 178 cm, look here ... Click Here

truebloodfan, Famke Jansen was wearing enormous heels throughout Rounders which exaggerated her already tall height. He is taller than her barefoot.

I doubt he's taller. Every public appearance of Ed Norton indicates he's 180-181cm. of course, I'm talking minimum(at night) height. he's a 6' out of bed, I'd bet.

somewhere between 5'11-60.
mat said on 7/Jun/11
no way he's six feet tall...Rob compare him with Avery Brooks in American History X. He has at least 2 inches over Norton in that film
rtw416 said on 7/Jun/11
I stood toe to toe with Mr.Norton at a theatre in N.Y.C.,I stand 5` 9" and he had at least 1 inch over me,so I would say that he could pass for 6ft but not more than that
Justin N said on 4/Jun/11
I saw him in person.Had to pad him down im a security guy and he was entering the peace meeting at NJpac in newark. I am 5'11 with my nikes on and he had kenneth cole flat type shoes he was definitely an inch shorter.
Justin N said on 3/Jun/11
I just saw Edward Norton. he attended a peace education summit in Newark NJ.(NJPAC). I was a security guard there and had to pad everyone entering the auditorium. I am 5'11 flat with my shoes maybe 5'11 1/2 and Edward was probably and inch shorter than me. He was wearing flat Kenneth Cole type shoes. So I'm pretty sure he is not 6'1 at all. over all he was a super nice guy and very down to earth. had a great conversation with him. out of all the celebrities he was the only one that showed up in a regular town taxi not a limo. nice guy but not 6'2.
dmeyer said on 29/May/11
rob it wouldnt surprise me if ed mesures nearer 182cm by bed time this guy looks taller in real life than in movie he walks like a 5 ft 11 men but is 6 ft

@ Tomas

it's not the only thing which is weird at the ending of Fight club, those who have watched it persistently know what I mean.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/11
Looks a true 6"0...I wouldn't rule out a hair over
Tomas said on 21/May/11
Okay this might sound REALLY odd, but I just finished watching "Fight Club", and right at the end, when he and Helena are holding hand, I notice that they seem to be the same height (which appeared awkward, provided I was well aware of Helena's height (5'2'')). So I took a look at her footwear, and she didn't seem to have a remarkable footwear, so how is that explained? Just weird I mean, there are 25 cms of heihgt apart, that's just not logical.

'But watching him in his other roles, he really is a little guy. I think he's a hair under 6'0" in the evening and probably weighs 150 lbs. most of the time.'

little guy? lmao Cranberries, you're a major troll. keep 'trollin!
Cranberries (6 ft. 3.25 evening) said on 15/May/11
Yeah, it's strange, I took Norton to be a pretty good physical specimen in American History X... He looked physically imposing, proportionate, and overall impressive. But watching him in his other roles, he really is a little guy. I think he's a hair under 6'0" in the evening and probably weighs 150 lbs. most of the time.
shell said on 11/May/11
He slouches all through fight club, as a part of the character (trying to look small & weak compared to Pitt). He has a small build, which is likely why people don't want to buy that he is tall. 6'0 seems right.
Sincere said on 10/May/11
People, you are crazy. I don't know if it's because you're short or what, but in almost every thread u're lying about celebritie's height. Like in this case, @mohammad saying he's bout 180, ****ing crazy person. Edward Norton is at least, a little bit taller than 6 feets.
Deth said on 7/May/11
Norton's height is kind of an enigma. He looked like a well-built, solid 6'1 guy in American History X, but by the time Fight Club was being filmed he had lost a lot of muscle, was much skinnier and had a smaller frame, making him look only 5'10 or so.
mohammad said on 6/May/11
he's 'bout 180, no more.
TruebloodFan said on 2/May/11
182cm(or less) Famke Jansen was taller than him in 'Rounders'. he's a strong 5ft11, very skinny guy, completely understandable why he looks 6ft.
Some guy said on 28/Apr/11
I love when people meet celebrities and are like "oh Im this tall so compared to me in person I can say he is this tall", when most people dont even know their own correct height
Bon_ said on 28/Apr/11
OK, I buy 6' flat after all
nasa said on 12/Apr/11
Edward Norton is 1,78 cm! no more.
Larc 6 ft 1.5 in said on 9/Apr/11
Pitt wear lifts in Fight Club! Without them he is for sure shorter than this guy.
At worst he is 5'11.5 but not less.
TruebloodFan said on 8/Apr/11
@Chameleon says on 21/Mar/11
Peter Cohen what you saw in Fightclubb was just an illusion. and Pitt aint no 5'11.

Indeed. Chameleon, you're one of better observers at this site. Pitt wore lifts for FC. common fact. look at the fight scenes in that basement when Pitt walks past 5ft9 Jared Leto. it's obvious he's 5ft10. Norton is a skinny 5ft11 and change guy. possible 5ft11 flat. in FC Pitt oftes sidewalk advantage.

talk about 'Rounders'...Famke Jansen was in that movie. She(182) destroyed them both in the bar scene.
SAK said on 7/Apr/11
He is no lower then 5ft11, and ppl saying that he's shorter then Pitt is not true.
Legend said on 2/Apr/11
yes he did look 5'9.75 at most next to maybe 5'10 pitt in fight club.

holy crap is this guy more than 5'10 i saw him in fight club next to brad pitt who's a 5'11 ish guy and pitt was taller than him by an inch maybe i'm sorry but this listing is ridiculous he looked pretty tiny in fight club at first i thought he could be 5'8 or 5'9 I'm pretty sure 5'10 on his lucky day
LEE MURRAY said on 22/Feb/11
I met him on my holidays in Dubai am legit 6ft 3 barefeet this guy is bang on 6ft tall I have a picture will try to post it, He was wearing flip flops same as me when we took the picture therefore that concludes he isnt 5ft,9 or 10,11 he is legit 6ft guy.
Bon_ said on 30/Jan/11
he may be 5'11.75, but that's the max.
somebody new said on 25/Jan/11
I dont think he's over the 6ft. mark.
Bon said on 10/Jan/11
I agree with 5'11.25, that is bang on. Closer to 5'11.5 than to flat 5'11 though.
Legend said on 9/Jan/11
He is 5'11.25, hardly over 5'11. That's it. He's rail thin so he appears taller than he really is. He was never a full 6 feet.
Sean said on 4/Jan/11
Are comments like this serious?
[Edward exchanged Eric Bana for the Hulk role in "The Incredible Hulk". So he mustn't differ in height with Eric very much. Bana is rather tall, so Edward must be at least 6' too.]
Misha said on 3/Jan/11
Cole, you could be quite right about Norton being a solid six feet, but the use
of height charts in movies is extremely arbitrary and subject to wild variations. I'm quite certain that a shorter actor like Tom Cruise would never allow an accurate reading if a movie being filmed required him to stand against a height chart - it would probably be lowered two or three inches in order to depict him as being around 5'10". But the scene you describe sounds interesting - I'll try to watch the film.
Cole said on 2/Jan/11
Mug Shot in American History X had him well over the 6ft mark. Between 6'1-2 in against the height chart. Looked very tall through out the movie. He's a solid 6 foot in my opinion. I think a lot of people are fooled by his small build or something.
jtm said on 2/Jan/11
sorry but there has already been too many evidence that proves damon is not 5'10 but i agree with 5'11.5 for norton.
misha said on 1/Jan/11
I just carefully studied the scene in "Rounders" where Matt Damon picks him up
when he is released from prison - it's clear as Norton is being processed out that he's wearing those high-ankled leather shoes that look like short boots -
in a few shots the heels show as being quite ample. On smooth pavement in the parking lot they greet, hug and stand quite close to each other. Norton is just verly slightly taller than Damon, who I'm convinced is no taller than 5'10". Norton may be an honest six feet, but my guess is he's 5'11.5" As an actor it would be logical and fair to give him the half-inch. While he could be 5'11", anything under that is preposterous, as is anything over six feet plus perhaps a quarter of an inch max.
somebody new said on 24/Dec/10
his posture might make him look 5'11'' sometimes, but he's closer to 6 ft.
Mr. Kaplan said on 23/Dec/10
5'11". The guy can look smaller because he doesn't wear lifts.
somebody new said on 19/Dec/10
I didnt see the inch
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Dec/10
An honest 6"0...about an inch taller than Brad Pitt in Fight Club
somebody new said on 17/Dec/10
he looked as tall as Brad Pitt in Fight club. Maybe not quite 6 feet? 5'11,5'' might be closer
linke said on 12/Dec/10
whatever he is,one hell of an actor.
Dominic said on 11/Dec/10
All the evidence points to him being no shorter than 182cms. People posting heights of 5'8 and 5'9 are just trolling...
Sasha said on 10/Dec/10
Edward exchanged Eric Bana for the Hulk role in "The Incredible Hulk". So he mustn't differ in height with Eric very much. Bana is rather tall, so Edward must be at least 6' too.

JC said on 6/Dec/10
This guy is a lot taller than he seems. I always imagined he was like an average 5'8 - 5'10 type until i met him in 2008. Im 5'8 1/2 and he towered over me, in my opinion he looked at least 6'1.Either way much taller than i expected.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Dec/10
Probably 6ft 0.5in out of bed
Bon said on 29/Nov/10
182, over 6' in the morning surely. Tall guy.
Anonymous said on 27/Nov/10
There is no way Edward Norton is six feet tall. He is 5'10 tops and even that seems generous to me. Hes around the same height as Brad Pitt and Matt Damon. Hes Far shorter than Tarantino who is 6'1
Harry said on 25/Nov/10
i have seen him before and he is 6.0 i think. i am 185 and he was roughly an inch smaller than me. i'll admit i saw him from a little distance, but still, i was surprised at his height.
Somebody New said on 19/Nov/10
looooool Ed is no shorter than 5'11''. I think he's between 5'11'' and 6ft
bill morrow said on 13/Nov/10
First off Edward Norton is nowhere near 6'0" 6'1" or even 5'11" in the seen in american history x when he exits his house with that big dude right as he's under the door way (which is 6'8") the door easily had 12" over him plus that big fat guy was listed at 6'1" still the doorway had more than 7" on him too and he was taller by Edward Norton by 2 inches so Ed is a good 5'8" maybe even 5'7" with strait posture I'd say srtong 5'8.5" weak 5'9"
E said on 7/Nov/10
hes 5'10" looks only 4 inches taller than ben stiller in keeping faith

[Editor Rob: stiller did wear lifts in that movie, he said it in an interview]
TruebloodFan said on 2/Nov/10
@DejaVu says on 11/Oct/10
It is still a mystery how Brad Pitt can look taller than Edward Norton and shorter than Tarantino. Norton is 6ft on the dot.

easily. pitt has monster lifts, although at 5ft11/strong 5ft10 he really doesn't need them. norton needs them even less, and he never wore them. he is visibly taller than Gere in 'Primal Fear'. Gere(always a questionable 5t10, more like 5ft9) is in monster shoes with God knows what in there and Norton (in low sneakers) is still taller.
somebody new said on 28/Oct/10
Lol. Some people are commenting he's 5'11ish on Robert Deniro's page, but here everyone is saying 6ft... like Hugh Jackman on Ryan Reynolds's page...
Dominic said on 25/Jun/09
It is amazing how short this guy looks from his slouching. I always thought he was the same height as Damon (5'10). There is a scene in Rounders with Matt Damon where they look at each other face to face. Norton is nearly 2 inches taller but not quite. I give him 182cms or 5ft11.5
paddy said on 22/Jun/09
Guys, take a look at this(!!!):

It's amazing how much dwarfed they are by Tim Robbins!!!!!!
PS I see the angle of the camera, nevertheless, the difference is huge.
For sure Norton is below 6'1 mark.
DejaVu said on 20/Jun/09
This guy really has bad posture. He looks shorter than his listed height for 90% of the time.
dman said on 17/Jun/09
6 feet to 6'1/2"

I think he was 6'1 but is 5'11.5 or 5'11.75 tops now
Hugh 190cm said on 8/Jun/09
Possibly a weak 6ft1 with good posture. This guy did look the same height as Brad Pitt when they presented at the MTV movie awards.
El said on 6/Jun/09
hey guys Masha Sharapova's 187cms (may be 188 now)that's an exact info :D um.. Ed's shorter..

Paddy Federer's 185 cms )and he's a lil bit shorter than Masha lol
sidewinder said on 28/May/09
He was a little shorter than avery brooks (185 cm.) in american history X so I think just 6 feet is accurate.
Hugh 190cm said on 24/May/09
Can look 6ft2 in dress shoes.
Anonymous said on 22/Apr/09
he looks as tall as 185cm Ryan gosling.
Clay said on 9/Apr/09
Pitt is in lifts there and closer to the camera. Norton is legitimately 6'0.5.
JJ said on 8/Apr/09
This guy is a legit 6'1. He doesn't care about his appearance much so he always bends his knees and slouches. He's definitely tall.
Doug said on 7/Apr/09
Funny thing is I always thought Pitt looked 2 inches taller than Norton in Fight Club! I think he was wearing lifts in those Tyler Durden boots with the red leather jacket as they looked pretty clumpy. Didn't see them barefoot, apparently Norton had 1.5 inches on Pitt barefoot so this is about right, don't know how Pitt often manages to look 2 inches taller though.
Rusty said on 7/Apr/09
Youre wrong sodapop, he is 6'0" and 155 pounds.
sodapop said on 29/Mar/09
I've seen Fight Club alot and Edward Norton is about 5'9", Brad is about 5'10", People saying Edward is 6 feet are wrong. With boots or lifts he can look close to 6 feet yes
MaxB said on 27/Mar/09
Alex, it's obvious this picture is bad and you cannot judge height by that. Pitt is closer to the camera and is standing on something, and on top of that the photo is tilted about 2 degrees in Pitt's favour.
bam said on 11/Mar/09
he was over 2 inches taller than richard gere, who is 5'10. (and could have been/claimed 5'10.5)

I don't think Ed Norton is this tall. This is a picture of Brad Pitt and Ed Norton. Pitt is listed as 5'11 and he looks to be at least a couple inches taller than Norton here: Click Here

Sharapova is 6'2''. That's very true. She can be easily taller than Federer.
No way is E. Norton taller than her.
tony t. said on 18/Feb/09
My bad. I forgot to add that Tony Siragusa is listed as 6'3.
Rusty said on 18/Feb/09
He has the same physique as me. Im 6'3" and 170 pounds at age 40, which is only a few pounds more than when I stopped growing. But yeah I don't think he is 6'1" Certainly a legit 6 footer though.
Jake said on 17/Feb/09
Edward Norton appears shorter than 5'11 Brad Pitt in Fight Club.
Ed(1) said on 13/Feb/09
Norton looked a good 2-3 inches shorter then Jon Voight(6ft2.5), and around 2 inches taller then Colin Farrell in Pride and Glory. Farrell wore some seriously thick cop boots in the movie, and Norton's weren't exactly small heeled either. Voight had on casual/dress shoes the entire time and was still considerably taller then them. The only one that had Voight was Noah Emmerich(actor from Cop Land, Frequency, and Little Children) who doesn't have a page here, but was a good 1-2" taller then Voight.

I think Rob has all these actors pretty much spot on!
tony t. said on 11/Feb/09
Why then does he look 3.5 - 4 inches shorter than former NFL star Tony Siragusa in the movie 25th hour?
lexi said on 9/Feb/09
For some odd reason, I always thought he was more like in the 5'9 to 5'10 range. Thinking about it now, he does seem to have bad posture. Looks 6'1 when standing staight. Love him as an actor.

Rob has him perfectly. He was a little taller than me. Between 6' and 6-1.
Rusty said on 4/Feb/09
Hes not at all like most celebrities. I dont think he wears lifts and doesnt really care to stand up fully straight and appear as tall as possible. He just really doesnt care what people think of his height.
Eddie said on 19/Jan/09
Norton usually looks 5ft 10 1/2 because of bad posture. But I think 6 ft is right.
Hugh said on 16/Jan/09
I wouldn't go lower than 6ft for this guy. 6ft1 is a possibility though.

I dont have one. I was just saying she does give a taller impression then he does looking at them.
miser said on 12/Dec/08
If Norton is really 184cm then he would be just slightly taller. I think they could appear to be roughly the same height in a picture. Why have you got a picture of them?
Alex said on 11/Dec/08
Miser, you think Maria Sharapova is 5'11-6'0 so you'd think Norton would be taller than her? I would think she'd be taller than him by a bit.

Edward Norton was just on Conan O'brien and when standing in front of Conans desk shaking hands they looked to be almost the same height and it Edward Norton was wearing normal dress shoes. Conan is 6'4" so you do the math! There's no way he's under 6'. I'm not really sure why it's such a mystery.
Hugh said on 16/Oct/08
I don't see Ed being less than 6ft. If anything he's closer to 6ft1. In The Italian Job he looked about an inch shorter than Donald Sutherland.
MD said on 12/Oct/08
MD, his base weight couldn't be lower than his Fight Club weight. He has said his Fight Club weight was a 20 lb weight loss.

Neil, what file are you talking about?
Sam said on 12/Oct/08
to Ed(1): Norton said he was thinnest in Fight Club from his teenage, that is to say, he was thinner than his normal state.
And he is above 6ft.
Ed(1) said on 11/Oct/08
My estimate MD is 180-185lbs for American History X, and 160-165 lbs for Fight Club. I'm guessing his base weight is around 150-155lbs at 5ft11.5-6ft. The guys has just got a naturally thin physique.

Big King said on 3/Oct/08
Damn it, watch Fight Club again and you will see that Norton isn't bigger than Brad Pitt! Norton is nothing above 6' and Brad may be 5'11 1/2".
Big King said on 2/Oct/08
Rob, did you see Fight Club? If yes, then you will recognize that Norton is as tall as Brad Pitt. There is no hair difference between them!
adam said on 23/Sep/08
I think Rob has him exactly right. A little over six feet sounds correct for him. He looked pretty tall in Fight Club. Also he looked very slim in that movie. Very small-boned man, look at his shoulders in that movie.

Guys seriously why are there people here claiming edward is 5'11 you all know that's not true ? There is NO way this guy is anything under 6 foot , i even suspect he is 6'1. And about the skinny part, he was not skinny in american history x, he was muscular. And he still looked tall. I am 6'1 myself , my brother is 6'1 and my father is 6'025.

this guy looks tall-ish in rounders and american history x. i'd say he's like 6'0.5 but has a really bad posture. he also looked like 2 inches taller than matt damon in rounders AND matt was wearing boots.
Ed(1) said on 26/Jul/08
5ft11.5-6ft tops for Norton! In my opinion The 6ft1 claim is his height in shoes, and depending on the footwear maybe a bit less. His normal physique which is on the skinny side, adds to the illusion of him being taller.

Ed Norton looks like he is maybe six feet even or five eleven and a half. He doesn't give me the impression of a guy as tall as six foot one, which is what he claims he is.

Brad Pitt is shorter than him,he looks taller in some photos because of his lifts.
I would say 6'0.25 for Norton is accurate,if stretched could be closer to 6'0.75 but not more....

Is this debate still on? Well, let's see. Here's a casual pic of Ed and Liev Schreiber, who is 6'3" (I've met him, he is definitely tall). You can see that they're almost shoulder-to-shoulder, with Ed being only slightly shorter. I think this makes his 6 - 6'1" height more likely.

Edward fan said on 31/May/08
I think Edward looked amazing in American History x, he realy has a nice tall build. I think he has the perfect height for a man. about 1.85 6'1 . I am at this moment 1.80 5'11 tall but I'm still growing I hope to become his height, my body build is simmalair to his to. Crossing thumbs :)

I don't know what happened to my previous posting, but Ed Norton is 6'1".
Clark said on 4/May/08
Norton is born with a long physique "look" with a long torso, long arms, etc. Very similar to body types like Rick Springfield, Keanu Reeves,David Caruso, Pierce Brosnan, Jim Carrey. You find this type of build in many people of Anglo or Celtic decent. I do believe Mr. Norton is very close to 6'1" and I am sure as the movie release comes closer, we will see him on many late night shows promoting the film. If he would stop slouching we should upgrade his height a bit.

nope, Norton is 6 foot 1 and change (barefoot). he is what some call a "strong" 6 foot 1. check pics with freddy prinze jr. check pics with ashton kutcher. this site won't let me post a tab, it tells me to go to a site called tiny url, and i don't have time.

With 5'9 Michael Stipe. Doesnt look 6' in this pic or most pics Ive seen. He does seem to slouch alot but still I think he is around 5'11 maybe 5'11.5 at the most.

He def. looks 6 on that pic there is 3 inches between them at least, probabably 3.25, also the shorter guy is closer to camera.

Alright, I'm gonna start by saying that Fight Club the single worst movie to judge height on; okay to those who say "MeatLoaf was taller than Ed" look at the scene where bob is on the porch, when the narrator goes up to him you can see he's at least 2-3 inches taller, MeatLoaf is 5'9-5'10, Ed is 5'11-6'0.

Johnny Boy said on 19/Feb/08
If you look at Norton and Gere in one court seen during Primal Fear, there is a straight medium shot of the two standing side by side - both of their shoulders are almost level except Norton has a bird-like neck which is far longer than Gere's. This makes an extra two inches at least on Gere. I think that is why Norton is downgraded from a 6' - 6'1 guy because his build is very slight and unappealing - he is lankier around the neck than the legs or torso.
Alex said on 11/Feb/08
He looks in the 5'11-6'0 range.

do not compare ed to brad
because, obviously, brad wears shoes with heels to gain height
but definitly ed is 6 feet tall
i mean, the guy himself said he's 6 feet tall in an interview
in AHX when he was running on the street behind his car, bare feet
look how tall he looked
and in the illusionist premiere with jessica biel, who's 170 cm, he looke atleast 10 cm above her (and she was wearing heels)
so get over it
he is tall, and that's it

Caesar said on 7/Jan/08
This is one of the few guys I would downgrade, in his case to at least under 6'0. Interesting pictures from Ms. Crababel: obviously Pitt is closer to the camera and there has to be a big pavement advantage. In my view, Pitt is 5'11 and Norton 5'11.5, maybe 6'0 on a good day. Among others, I would suggest downgrading him and of course, Ryan Seacrest.

C. said on 20/Nov/07
It's very possible to see him as 5'9" or 5'10" since he really does have utterly horrendous posture, but I can also clearly see him as the 6' he claims, especially when he's not alongside someone like Pitt whom obviously stuffs his shoes and just has to achieve that 6'+ (although it's crazy since he's obviously still quite tall at around 5'10"-11" but whatev). I also think that because he is so tiny (as in, oober thin) people also may mistake his height when they see him in person because his frame is so small, along with his hunched over disposition, rather than the opposite. B/c I don't think he has some sort of issue over his height or anything. If anything, he avoids the spotlight often, so I just don't see it honestly.

@Drews pictures of Ed and Pitt; If Pitt is 5'10 at the very least (i think this is the least he could be; anything beneath is ridiculous), then Norton gotta be 6'1; Maybe the angle is weird and their not standing straight, but I'm sure that there are at least two inch inbetween.

Yeah but compare him to Edward Furlong (about 5'7") in "American History X". He was clearly more than 2-3 inches taller than him. He may have been wearing shoes that gave him a slight boost, but the fact that his posture is terrible would take away from that. He is easily 5'11" at the least.

most celebrities are "around" 5'11 correct? such as Brad, Sean Penn, De Nero, Matt Damon and any of the the people that Norton worked with and Edward is always taller than them by at least 2 inches so he is at most 6'0

[Editor Rob: he can look shy of avery brooks, but not same posture in that AHX scene. In Illusionist in several scenes with decent posture beats Rufus Sewell.]

ed looks max 2.5 in taller than deniro who was barely 5'8 when i met him so maybe was 5'8.25 back in the score so weak 5'11 for norton he looked barely taller than damon in rounders so 5'11 or 5'11.25 looked barely taller than charlize theron who i think is 5'10 so 5'11.5 not mush taller than gere lets even say shorter than pitt on many occasion who i doubt that will go over 6'0.5 apearance likely 6'0 so in movies looks about 5'11 like 5'10.5 to 5'11.5 could be a 6 footer with terible posture
Drew said on 3/May/07
Lock richinkle, you can't compare height in movies. There are these things called lifts and camera tricks. Norton is 6ft EASY. He has a good 1.5 inches on Brad Pitt (when Pitt is not wearing lifts).

The current estimate is without a doubt CORRECT. 183cm at the very very least.
richinkle said on 29/Apr/07
I'm watching Primal Fear right now, and there is no more than an inch between 5'-10" Richard Gere and Ed Norton. Ed's an excellent actor, but I don't see him as being more than 5'-11".

aeolianharpy said on 26/Mar/07
He towers over Salma Hayek in all the pictures of them together, and she's always wearing heels, usually platforms. I can see him wearing lifts or employing other methods of looking different to portray a character, so comparing his height with others onscreen seems pretty pointless. But even if Salma is only 5 feet tall, Norton couldn't be any shorter than 5'11".

misha said on 4/Mar/07
MD, let's close the book on Brad Pitt, then Norton's disputed height will fall into place. First of all, there is potent and convincing evidence for putting Brad Pitt at 5'9.5" tops. I encourage anyone who doubts this to look at the photos of him with Gwyneth Paltrow that Anonymous posted at Pitt's site on 2/13. Both of their footwear is visible - you can clearly see that Paltrow is wearing street shoes and not platforms - yet she is two inches taller than Pitt! Now in the Pitt-Norton photo, if Ed Norton is 6'.25" and is wearing an inch and a half of heels - a fair assumption because he would never appear at a paparazzi-studded event with low-heeled shoes - then he's close to 6'2' in the photo. But if that is true, then Pitt, who clearly towers over Norton, is pushing 6'4"! Can anyone see how absurd it all becomes? The only possible explanation is to recognize that many of today's male actors are wearing tremendous lifts and thus are really shorter than we think they are - any other explanation requires pathological denial as a starting point.
MD said on 26/Feb/07

I think you may be right about Norton's height. Like I said quite a ways down, he was recently on Jay Leno and was Jay's height, which threw me for a loop because I always thought he was 6'1". The thing was, he wasn't slouching, either. Even in lifts Jay's not going to get any taller than 6'0.5", IMO.

Rob, did you just bring down Norton? I can't remember what he was listed at.

Norton looked about 4 inches shorter than David Morse(6ft4) in Down in the Valley, and Norton was wearing cowboy boots. Now, I've always thought he was at least 6ft, and because he's so skinny he gives the impression of being even taller. So with cowboy boots he would be close to 6ft2, but Morse can't be 6ft6 with shoes on, could he? I can't remember another movie where Morse looked as huge as he did in this film, maybe The Indian Runner, but he wasn't skinny at all like he used to be, the guy looked big all around like he would snap Norton's neck with his bare hands, if his angry dad character needed to.
