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.

Hi people, i think Edward Norton's hieght is 5'10. I also think we are been manipulated to think he is close to 6'0. Some fotos shown here look temper with and i do not mean he might wearing lifts. I make this point because i saw in these same site, but in another forum discussion, that Owen Wilson the original actor came in to the forum and said " Why wouldn’t I have time? I surf the net like everyone else, I’m a person (most actors are), I have free time, browsing pages about what fans think of me in various fields interests me I guess ". Having said that, i think It's Possible that Edward Nortron the original, like in Owen Wilson case, could have come into to de forum to tried alter your opinion about him. Remember this a top site that appears on the frist page o google :), people see it. I could be wrong, but then again maybe not. The hieght rangein for this guy height is from 5'7 to 6´'2 and that is to much.

thank you so mush rob because at first you had him 185 it didnt make sens also pitt looks sometimes 1.5 in taller than him and pitt is not over 6'2 in shoes possibly even 6'1.5 in shoes so give impression of 184 185 cm so if norton was 184 185 he would have look the same not taller so so norton is a week 184 who can look 180 with bad posture
G-MANN said on 13/Jan/07
I'd say 6'1". He's certainly no shorter than the height listed here, in Fight Club he was definetely taller than Brad Pitt.
MD said on 11/Jan/07
Paul, why post pictures from movies? Movies are notorious for camera tricks and lifts and such. None of those are hardly proof of anything.
dmeyer said on 10/Jan/07
to me norton is 5'11 maybe 5'11.5 thats wath he looks near pitt damon deniro
dmeyer said on 28/Dec/06
molina is very tall i met him like 189 easy
dmeyer said on 12/Dec/06
thank you rob i even think he could 6 feet flat
[Editor Rob: at the Frida premiere he's taller than geoffrey rush, but shorter than alfred molina, he can go either way argue 183 or 184...]
Paul said on 8/Dec/06
It's funny that the people who claim that Brad Pitt is 6-1, say that Norton is just 5-11. Did you ever realise that Norton has 2 inches on Pitt?
dmeyer said on 30/Oct/06
at 185 cm he should tower over damon in rounder lloks 1 to 1.2 in taller and turturo apeared 3 in on damon so it means tuturo is 1 in taller than norton for some reason i see norton at 5'11.5 at the very most he never even look 6 even if pitt is 6'1 in lifts the diferance will be only 0.25 diferance wish is not noticable then whi pitt apear taller
dmeyer said on 20/Oct/06
i cant see norton at 185 cm he just dont look it on screen he barely looks 2.5 inches on 175 de niro he dosnt look as tall as brad in lifts he looks barely taller than 178 theron in flat he dosnt look 15 cn on stiller and not mush taller than 178 elfman he dosnt look 3 inches on gere most of the time he apears 5'11 to 11.5 also dosnt look 2.75 in on damon he might be 185 since i met a lot of celeg and you seem very accurate since hanks looked 183 184 range like you said eckart looked 178 180 range ...... basicaly you are good so norton might be 185 but never look it
G-unit said on 20/Oct/06
my bet would be 6'. Compare him and matt damon in rounders. Edward Norton is wearing cowboy boots, with his boots he's 2 inches taller. I would even say that 6' is generous, this guy looks very tall because of his light weight.
jay said on 13/Oct/06
They do look about the same height in that pic, but remember Norton is probably barefoot or wearing slippers whereas Gere probably has well heeled dress shoes on, plus Gere's hair is poofy. That gives Norton about 1.5-2 inches on Gere.
said on 11/Oct/06
If people say that Edward Norton is 6'1 and many believe Brad Pitt to be 6'0, just take a look at this next picture. It seems Norton is 5'11 and Brad is 6'0. And I could be wrong, because Edward did seem the same height as Richard Gear who is much shorter than 5'11, so this requires some SERIOUS thought.Click Here

he is a little bit taller or at least as tall as Edward NortonClick Here

chris said on 15/Sep/06
How can people even think of Norton could be under 5'9? Though his bad posture he always gives the impression of being at least 5'11.5. Just watch the prison shower scene in American History X. He has very long legs and is at least 2 inches taller than "I want to be 6'1" Brad Pitt (who is more 5'11).
leonari said on 26/Aug/06
Clooney has no clue. He said it's "irritating" how tall Brad is...well look into Pitts shoes GEORGE!
Anonymous said on 26/Aug/06
clooney said pitt was 1,85m, wishing he was that tall.
Stevie G said on 25/Aug/06
Saw him on Letterman. He looked a little bit shorter than David. My guess is 6 ft.
dmeyer said on 26/Jun/06
then if the guy is 174 then ed is 182 then it will make sens since brad apear 6'1" with good shoes on
dmeyer said on 26/Jun/06
then if the guy is 174 then ed is 182
said on 26/Jun/06
hey rob i have never seen ed look 185 in fight club he apears aleast 3 cm shorter than pitt wich means pitt is 6'3" in lifts since norton is 6'1.75" in normal shoes he barely looks 2.5" taller than deniro in the score he barely looks taler than 5'10 theron in flat he is at the very best 5'11.5" or 6' with awful posture if you say 185 is possible then i believe you but he never looks it so rob i would like to see even one pic were he looks 185cm[Editor Rob: yes, its the holy grail...I'm now actually not as convinced of 185, although see him square up to ave brooks in AHX at the end.
I was trying to find him beside somebody I've met and see this Picture, the other guy is not more than 174cm, if you want to see pic of other guy+me just email me, that's always the uncensored pic I let people see of me ;-)]
jess said on 19/Jun/06
i agree that he is at least 6' maybe a little over. if you aslo notice in most pics he slouches when other male actors stand as talland straight as possible this makes me think he really is tall and can afford to slouch when others cannot...just something i noticed
Kine said on 16/Jun/06
I saw a press junket for Fight Club on TV and Norton stood about 2 good inches above Brad Pitt - Tyler Durden had to look imposing and be the 'big' guy. Also the commetary for said film has them talking how they had to put Meatloaf on a box to be taller than Norton
[Editor Rob: yeah, they did make loafer look big in that...norton purposelly slouched a bit and god knows what pitt's footwear was, some other people have mentioned they looked abnormal]
paleface said on 12/Jun/06
My 6'6 brother met him in the airport. Since my brother's a customs agent, he was standing next to him for a few minutes. He said he's pretty tall, which in my brother's universe means at least 6'1.
Dave said on 31/May/06
Ed Norton is not that tall (6ft 0.75). He is shorter than Brad Pitt in most shots. Brad is 5 ft 11 and probably wears lifts, but still that would make Norton most likely 6 flat at his tallest.
dmeyer said on 25/May/06
i cant see the guy as tall as 185 he is not that mush taller than deniro he is barely taller than theron when she is without heels pitt looks taller even in lifts he is no taller than a 185 guy maybe he is 185 but look 180 182 range with bad posture
said on 18/May/06
In this article, he is described as a "wiry 6'2"":
I hope I grow in my 30s just like Edward Norton!
clad-in-black said on 6/May/06
reason why Ben stiller doesnt look too short is because he wore elevated boots,its the only reason i can think of.And why do you guys continue to argue, the man IS tall, he didnt look it in his movies, but he is definitely tall.
0kuma said on 6/May/06
On tonight's Conan O' Brien show (May 5th, 2006 Friday), Edward Norton told COB that he broke his back recently doing a movie. He might need to be re-evaluated.
Thomas said on 2/May/06
Ben Stiller is 170cm. He should not arrive higher than the beginning of Edward's nose. So, what do you think?
said on 22/Apr/06
Edward Norton , tends to slouch his neck, that makes him look short Norton , Stiller and Jenna Elfman Click Here

I think it'll be easier to find out if someone can get a pic of Edward and his ex-girlfriend Salma Hayek together. She's only 5'2" (my height, maybe a lil' shorter) so you can compare them and find out. He certainly does look atleast 6'.
Anonymous said on 10/Feb/06
I always thought Norton was about 5'11"....Then I saw him in a
movie that Tony Siragusa was in him with.....Tony is 6'3" and
Norton was only a little shorter.
said on 10/Feb/06
I don't know if I should be posting this pic, but here's Ed next to an actor who lists his height on his resume/site at 5'9". Ed looks about 6'1" here: link
If you doubt he's being honest about his height check out the pic of him and Jerry Stiller. If he's not 5'9" than Jerry has got to be like 5'0", and as short as he is, he can't be THAT short.
richinkle said on 3/Feb/06
I would never have estimated him at over 6'-0". I think he's closer to 5'-11". Where is Glenn when we need him??
jj said on 25/Jan/06
hey guys u might be surprised but edward norton could actually be 6'1.5,watch the movie american history x in that movie there is a scene in which there is a photo of him on a mugshot and he stands clearly 1.5 above the six feet mark.
Marc said on 14/Jan/06
Miki, from the nose to the top of the back of the head is 4 inches? Think about it. It can be as large as seven inches. Edward norton doesn't have a ridiculously small head, so it has to be around six inches. I'm 5'10". My brother is 5'7" and he comes up to about my eyebrows. I have at least three inches on him. Trust me.
Miki said on 10/Jan/06
Yeah, Marc, but from nose and up there's about 4inches, 5 at best.
Therefore, Norton is about 5'11.5, 6'0 max.
Iris said on 10/Jan/06
brad pitt looks way taller than him on fight club...Then again he´s solid over Harrison Ford by an inch in that picture from editor. (we would have to take a look of their footwear
Marc said on 6/Jan/06
Edward Furlong is 5'7". In comparison, Edward Norton has to be 6'1". Look at American History X. Norton has about 6 inches over Furlong, who only reaches under Norton's nose.
dmeyer said on 12/Dec/05
i think ed look shorter than he is but i am steel not convinced he is over 6 feet tom hanks who is around 184 cm can even look taller in movie if you watch norton compare to 5 ft 9 de niro he looks at best 5'11.5"
CelebHeights Editor said on 7/Dec/05
"i am not convinced he is that tall he is barly 2" on deniro he is shorter than pitt i think he is 6'"
Anonymous said on 5/Dec/05
to me he looks 6' at best
Miki said on 2/Dec/05
Eddy's shorely not 185cm. In the fight club, Pitt is definitly taller about 2cm.
Even if he would tend to sloop and slouch, there's no way he could be 179cm. Therefore, he is somewhere around 5'11.5 or 6'0 max.
anonymous said on 4/Nov/05
I remember seeing a casting call for stunt doubles. It listed all the main cast's heights and I think he was listed as 6'1. I'm not certain of that. It might have been 6'0.
drew said on 2/Nov/05
I can't believe people are saying he's less than six feet. He's not. I wouldn't say he's more than 6ft even though.
Fred Hahn said on 19/Oct/05
I was in acting class with Ed Norton back in the 1990's at the T.Schreiber Studios. Great guy. Good actor. Asked me to audition with him for the Actor's Studio. We never got around to it (UGH). He is at least as tall as I am and I'm 5'11".
MHouillon said on 24/Sep/05
And because Ralph Fiennes isn't 5'11 but 5'11.75 (182), Edward Norton is 6'0.5 (184cm) !!! So Rob, please correct Ralph to 182cm. Thanks
[Editor Rob: the 181cm is maybe realistic, but 182cm? I'll have another look at this guy...]
MHouillon said on 21/Sep/05
Just saw Red Dragon. If Ralph Fiennes is only 5'11" as listed on this site, Rob (!!!), Edward Norton is 5'11.5" (182cm) MAXIMUM !!!
Anonymous said on 19/Sep/05
What???? He´s only 5´9. If he´s 6 ft 0,75 then I´m 6 ft 7 (My height is 6 ft 4)
said on 3/Sep/05
Editor, do you happen to know where the picture of Edward N and Edward Furlong went from the two standing together in American History X?[Editor Rob: sorry, but here is one to ponder:
Edward and Edward.]
Mr. R said on 19/Aug/05
Having just lost a stand in job for being 2 inches taller than Tyrese at
5-11.5, I can tell you that they really do choose standins who are pretty close in height and weight to the original actor.
CelebHeights Editor said on 19/Aug/05
From gossip newsgroup: "I saw Ed Norton directing a group of pre-teens boys at a baseball diamond in central park for his Keeping the Faith shoot a few years ago and he did not appear a whole lot taller than the boys. From my bleacher-perspective he couldn't have been more than 5'8"."
From the same thread: "go with the alleged height of 6' 1". He was in a coffee line ahead of me at a press conference and is way taller than my five foot nine."
Sticks said on 19/Aug/05
I was amazed when I saw Brad Pitt and Ed Norton in person. Both much shorter
and thinner than I'd thought. Imagine how tiny Jennifer Aniston must be! www.improvisation.ws/mb/showthread.php?t=21784&goto=nextoldest
Maybe there was a casting call for six footers so that someone could help him look 6' tall.
Anonymous said on 21/Jul/05
hey height police he is not 5'7", he would be the same as eward furlong
sean said on 27/Jun/05
shook his hand at a showing, about 5'10-11" Didn't see what type of shoes he was wearing.
elliott mathieson said on 12/Jun/05
he does look shorter in fight club compared to brad pitt, but a one point there is a point where he reaches above brad pitt so i have to agree w/ 6'1"
Height Police said on 10/Jun/05
That mug shot from American History X is part of the movie. They can make whatever height they want to make him look taller or shorter on the wall marker.
This is a short guy. Probably around 5-7
dmeyer said on 26/May/05
if ed norton is 185 cm then brad is 188 cm in fight club brad looks taller
[Editor Rob: Norton really didn't force his posture like Pitt in that movie, and I would bet that Pitt wanted to appear at least, if not slightly taller than Norton...]
Mr. R said on 26/May/05
I have to disagree with you J.J Those pics do not prove that Ed is below 6 feet. The Lambs pic is tilted and we can't see the ground. Hopkins may be standing on tip toe. The other pic intentionally has him on the outside because the ground is slanted which makes Stiller look taller. Also, Jenna Elfman is quite tall, she's listed at 5-10, and she is wearing heels in that shot. I met Ed, and he is just over 6 foot.
J.J said on 24/May/05
The following pictures prove, to a certain extent, that Norton is no way over 6'.
Not a 4-4.5inch difference between him and Hopkins. More like 3inches which puts him at 5'11" which I think he probably is.
Just doesn't look 6 foot+ in ANY of his movies
Michael said on 26/Apr/05
I saw Edward Norton on John Stewart's "The Daily Show" around 2 1/2 years ago, and vividly remember him telling John: "I'm six foot." This is why I'm skeptical of the 185 cm claim, because that would mean Edward was actually rounding his height *down* instead of up, which is unheard of for male actors. 183 cm (6-foot even) is probably more accurate.
Anonymous said on 25/Mar/05
if you look at norton's mug shots from anerican history X, you can see that he stands well over 6'0 mark on the wall...he appears to be about 6'2, but minus the shoes, he's prolly around 6'1
said on 22/Mar/05
This is one case where I err on the other side. I saw Ed at a dinner last October and he walked past me, and he seemed to look me directly in the eye. I would say that he was just a bit over six feet. I can't speak about his lifts.[Editor Rob: It is unknown about Norton's footwear, but one thing is I am pretty sure that Pitt/Damon could have worn lifts when working with Norton. This Picture supports Norton's 184cm claim.]
issheuhboy said on 21/Mar/05
Hmm. Norton's a tricky one isn't he? I think this is further confused by seeing lots of pictures Norton standing next to Matt Damon or Brad Pitt, because both are at the top on the Christmas card list for certain shoe manufacturers. I think 6'0 is about right. But then again, so could 5'9!
dmeyer said on 23/Feb/05
he look shorter than brad pitt in fight club by 1 inch
