How tall is Edward Norton

Edward Norton's Height

6ft 0in (182.9 cm)

American actor best known for starring in movies such as American History X, The Illusionist, The Incredible Hulk, Birdman, Primal Fear, Rounders, The Score and Fight Club. On the Daily show in 2002 he mentioned his height, saying "I am Six Feet tall".

This guy is a prime example of a legit 6 footer, he even managed to edge out Brad Pitt in Fight Club who was wearing thick boots
berta said on 18/Oct/17
if he had that injury then i believe he was legit 6 foot tall at peak and 182,5 now. today it looks like he isnt 183 anymore
Slim 6' said on 12/Oct/17
It's safe to give him a 183 (6'0.25") upgrade.
Even watch American history x again if you wish, with high muscle mass he's a tall big guy, it's a shame he never bulked up again.
Slim 6' said on 9/Oct/17
Basically he was never below 6' at peak. He edged out Stacy keach who rob met and. Confirmed was 181(5'11.5") at peak.
Joshua said on 7/Oct/17
I think he is 6’1
Slim said on 27/Sep/17
He doesn't look under 6' next to 181 listed Stacy leach in "American history x", i can't remember their shoes though. Click Here
Slim said on 25/Sep/17
Guys, there's nothing 5'11" about him like Jensen ackles and Chris Evans, this is how a 6 footer should look like and if anything 6'0.5" is imaginable in the 90's.

Coincidentally Bale and Norton have both played insomniacs and magicians and are of similar height!?
Jani said on 24/Sep/17
Brad Pitt looks around the same height as Norton on screen and off screen. Also off screen Norton and Dicaprio look the same height in photos. Plus Adrien Brody (183cm) looks a bit taller than Norton in some Golden Globes photos. 183cm is too much for Norton IMO. Looks more like 181cm to me.
berta said on 19/Sep/17
he look like a 6 footer but i dont think he was a guy that was 3 mm over it. could be more chanse that he is 3 mm under it. a guy like adrien brody is taller
Peter181cm said on 14/Sep/17
He is really close to 6' (1.83m)
But I think he is 5'11.(25 - 75in)
(1.81m - 1.82m) ;)
Slim said on 13/Sep/17
Hi rob, where do u think ed would stadiometre in his glory days:
A: 5'11.75"
B: 6'
C: 6'0.25"
D: 6'0.5"
E: 6'0.75"
Editor Rob: I still think he was in 90's a typical six footer, maybe more chance slightly over than say under...and a 1/4 inch height loss by late 40's shouldn't be ruled out, especially with his back accident.
Slim said on 5/Sep/17
Thanks for the tips, it looks like I'll have to update my nickname again! Jk.

What's the highest I could argue for Edward? He's edged lift boot wearing pitt and even towered furlong and lift wearing marky mark. It pays to have a good knowledge of cult films btw.
Slim said on 30/Aug/17
Big rob, any suggestions to fix a norton slouch?
I guess building upper body strength is one.
Editor Rob: yes, trying to build some strength in core/back muscles in equal measure...but also the practice of working on posture.
Mickey said on 24/Aug/17
rob, what would you say about his weight? i would guess probably between 170 and 180.
berta said on 19/Aug/17
i think this guy and christian bale is pretty mutch the same height. its okey for them to claim 6 foot but they are down to just ovver 182 in the afternoon.
the Slav said on 16/Aug/17
Have you considered listing his current height a tad below 6'0 and leave the 6'0 listing as a peak height? Seems like injuries throughout his career have taken their tolls on his body and caused his height to shrink a bit. Great actor nonetheless - one of my all time favorites
Editor Rob: it might be possible, I did think he could look a fraction shy of 6ft these days...
Spencer said on 14/Aug/17
Looks exactly 6 maybe a touch over
Slim 182 cm said on 13/Aug/17
Lmfao at 5'11.5 guesses. The fact that ed wears small to medium footwear and doesn't stand with posture just proves that he's comfortably 6' or more. The guy actually did break his back a few years back and most likely lost a quarter inch.
Gwynbleidd said on 6/Aug/17
Either a touch under (5' 11.75") or exactly 6 foot. However, I figure he's 6 foot bang on. What a fantastic actor, by the way.
Sandy Cowell said on 27/Jul/17
@ Rent - Hi! I agree that Edward is a great actor and he is very nice with it - VERY nice! 👍

He gets 6ft exactly tonight from me.
Rent said on 26/Jul/17
6'seems fair but at tops , here he's with 6'4" director Louis Leterrier Click Here , terrific actor BTW
Dan said on 23/Jul/17
Wow I didn't expect him to be 6 foot, I always thought maybe like 5'10"
Sonnecker said on 19/Jul/17
My opinion in 182 cm, 5'11.5 or .75 for Edward. Always loved his roles, a still underrated and very intense actor, I think.

Slim 182 cm said on 18/Jul/17
He's comfortable with his height and body, hence why he doesn't stand with military posture, even in American History X, he looked 185 in the shower scene, but as we know the screen tricks our minds.I reckon he'd measure prime, a Strong 6'0. Like chris pine, He may round down the quarter inch. 🍺
Slim 181 cm said on 12/Jul/17
Perhaps norton is 2 cm taller than pitt?
even said on 5/Jul/17
6 feet
Slim 181 cm said on 25/Jun/17
@HonestSlovene, I'd say 4 cm Is closer to the truth given that Brad is a subtle lift wearer.
nikola said on 15/Jun/17
Great actor,do you think that 180cm is possible for him?He looks slightly more than 2 inches shorter than Djokovic here:
HonestSlovene said on 8/Jun/17
Norton has 3 cm on Pitt.
Animus said on 2/Jun/17
Proportionally he doesn't look like a six-footer, and his posture is often quite bad, but when stands up straight against guys like DiCaprio and Pitt, you can see he has to be around six feet tall.
Average height and slim said on 26/May/17
Edward Norton- 183.5 cm (6"0.25)

Brad Pitt- 179.5 cm(5"10.75)

@Richardspain your comment makes no sense you said 182 max but 183 barefoot

Solid 182cm max 183cm barefoot.

He wears good shoes and tall hair.
Davej said on 28/Apr/17
@SJH agree 100%. 511 now. Still a tall man. People must understand that a legit 5 11 guy/woman, thats tall!! But he Can look latter at times.
RisingForce said on 22/Apr/17
Norton is taller than Pitt: Click Here But Pitt with his footwear and posture can look taller. I think Norton has always been more 182 cm range, much like Christian Bale, though he doesn't have the best posture.
the Slav said on 20/Apr/17
A solid 6'0 at peak but I think he'd measure 5'11.75 these days
sumdude said on 20/Apr/17
Looks it in 99% of photos aswell. Legit 6ft. He probably wakes up similar to my height, after ~8 hours of sleep I'm at 184.5-185cm most days. My shrinking ends at around 183-183.5cm at night before bed.
Hans Meiser said on 19/Apr/17
This is what a legit 6 footer looks like.
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Mar/17
@ Arch Stanton - I saw 'Primal Fear' last night, finishing it off this morning. What a brilliant ending! Fantastic film - thanks Arch! I'll certainly be seeing it again!
Guess which part I kept playing over and over again? I bet you can! It made me jump out of my skin and looked ever so realistic! 😨 👍
Sandy Cowell said on 26/Mar/17
@ Arch Stanton - I'm ordering my copy of 'Primal Fear' today!
That'll be (at least) my 6th Edward Norton film, so they're mounting up nicely!
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Mar/17
That sounds nasty! Poor sausage - I had no idea he'd had such a bad accident! 😪
Arch Stanton said on 23/Mar/17
Primal Fear is a good one, Norton plays the split personality type wonderfully.
Sandy Cowell said on 22/Mar/17
Surely Ed isn't old enough to have lost any height yet! I'll stay with 6ft for the minute, but I'll keep 'Primal Fear' in mind for my 'to watch soon' list and have a ganders at him then!
Editor Rob: Sandy, I think there is a good chance he might have lost a fraction.

Ed said: "One of those horses chucked me off pretty badly"...

presumably the Pony had just watched Death to Smoochy....

[j/k, I'm sorry Ed, I loved you in The Illusionist, Rounders, American History X, Red Dragon and The Score!]

"I broke my spine in like three places. I broke my back. I broke three vertebrae in my back...I cracked my 10th, 11th and especially my 12th thoracic vertebrae"

He actually looked taller than Brad Pitt in Fight Club. Rewatch the bar scene
S.J.H said on 16/Mar/17
5'11.5 peak and 5'11 now.
HonestSlovene said on 5/Mar/17
He looks like a weak 6'0" or 182 cm.
Danny183 said on 3/Mar/17
Guys, he looks at least 2 inches shorter than Will Smith in every scene of Collateral Beauty. He's 182 at tops.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Feb/17
Mmm, in Primal Fear he looks no more than an inch taller than Richard Gere.
Hijopotamus said on 27/Jan/17
John S., Pitt was on his weird shoes and Norton in socks and still taller.
6' for Norton seems reasonable
Dejavu said on 21/Dec/16
Will Smith looks 6'1.5 next to Edward Norton if he is 6'0.
Nik said on 1/Dec/16
I have to be honest but from this picture Edward Norton is either over 6'0" or Connie Britton is under 5'7".
John S. said on 29/Nov/16
He was slightly taller than Brad Pitt
matthew morgan said on 7/Nov/16
Norton looks smaller than brad Pitt in fight club and brads 5 feet 11
Giorgi said on 6/Nov/16
Norton must be one of the fewest insecure sixfooters. Why would he lie he's an inch taller than Bill Hader. Hader's actually an inch taller than him so even with the bad posture that he has, there is no way Norton wouldn't know he was lying.
Sandy Cowell said on 31/Oct/16
I'm fairly certain that Edward Norton was described as 6ft1 in the romantic adventure 'In the Valley' but that could well have been just for the part he was playing. I know I got it from somewhere, but seeing here that he actually says he is 6ft is good enough for me!
One of the main reasons I like this fellow is that he comes over as gentle and inconceited even though he has every reason to be otherwise with a bod like that!
Ren said on 26/Oct/16
Rob, you are telling Ed Norton shrunk. If he shrunk, when you give him peak height at 6 ft and 5'11.5 as a current height
Editor Rob: I'm saying the chances are increased that since he broke a few vertebrae 10 years ago it could have knocked a few mm's off him.
S.J.H said on 19/Oct/16
Christian bale = Edward norton = 5'11.5
Glynny182 said on 9/Oct/16
Hello Rob which of these do you think suits best for Norton? first in his peak/prime and second today a)186cm-184cm b) 185.5cm-183.5cm c) 185cm-183cm d) 184.5cm-182.5cm e) 184cm-182cm.
Editor Rob: I think there is a chance he lost a 1/4 inch through back injuries...maybe going from c-d to d/e today.
Domti said on 1/Oct/16
I'm curious to see how he stacks up against Will Smith at the premiere of 'Collateral Beauty'. Hope we get some good pics so we can compare them properly.
Vanessa said on 30/Sep/16
6 ft is fine for him, generally looks that height
Miksi said on 24/Sep/16
You do have a point. I'm not saying it's impossible he's a bit under the 6' mark today, I'm just referring to how someone looks in a movie etc. Btw, was he listed as 6'1' here at one point?
Miksi said on 18/Sep/16
There are photos from the set of Collateral Beauty with him and Will Smith next to each other and the difference seems about inch/inch and a change. Movies, and especially movie trailers are not exactly the most accurate measurement of how tall an actor actually is.
Editor Rob: Norton did damage his back at one point, it may be possible he's lost a fraction in height.
ly said on 18/Sep/16
I think he was 6ft peak or very close to it but today he looks no more than 5ft11 i mean check the trailer of his new movie with will smith,he looks more than 2 inches shorter.
He broke his back in 2006 filming the painted veil and that may have caused him a fraction loss and lately he has much poorer posture and also he is 47 now so maybe a fraction loss.
With his posture today he looks no more than 5ft11 but i think if measured he may be 5ft11.25-5.
D said on 15/Sep/16
If Norton is 5'10 then brad Pitt is 5'8.7 and Damon is 5.7.5. Haters... Rob, I don't know how you can tolerate such people, saying Norton is as tall as damon
Dmeyer said on 11/Sep/16
I use to think hé was 5 ft 11 but 6 ft is wath hé can look near
kbhart said on 9/Sep/16
In Rounders Norton and Damon look about the same height....5'10". 6' seems off.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Aug/16
He can look 5ft11-11½ with poor posture but then other times near 6ft1!
Miksi said on 2/Aug/16
6' is a good guess for him. Also lol at 5'11 flat, not a chance.
John said on 29/Jul/16
no more than 5ft 11
truth said on 22/Jun/16
6'0 seems legit, sometimes he can look 5'11.75 at worst.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Apr/16
Honest 6ft
Editor Rob: since he did have some injuries to his back years ago, it is possible he doesn't stand as tall today, well we're talking a fraction of course.
Domti said on 5/Apr/16
Yeah I think he mentioned on some talk show in 2006 how he fell from a horse and broke his back. Hard to tell if it had any impact on his height since his posture has always been kind of poor.
Dejavu said on 5/Apr/16
Watch the bar scene in Fight Club. He had an inch on Brad Pitt.
Domti said on 4/Apr/16
Legit 6', no doubt.
BT said on 3/Apr/16
He mostly looks 6ft, he's got tall hair and a slim frame though so he could dip a little under the mark.
Editor Rob: 10 years or so back I'm sure I read he had broke some back bones, it's always possible it effected him a little.
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 15/Jan/16
5'11 the same as Pitt
Rizzo said on 4/Jan/16
Rob, he looks over 6' most of the time, is it because of his lanky frame?
Editor Rob: his lanky frame definitely can add to a taller appearance, but the more films I saw of him over the years, the more I think about 6ft as he claims is fine.
Marzo said on 2/Jan/16
I just recently watched 'Death to Smoochy' and at one point Ed gets arrested and has his mugshot taken. He's noticeably above the 6' mark. He was also above the 6' mark in the mugshot in AHX. Obviously he gets a boost from footwear but I still think that makes him a legit 1,83 guy. For comparisons, I also watched 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and Leonardo DiCaprio, who's supposed to be only 1 cm shorter than Norton, was barely scrapping 6' with his shoes on. What do you think Rob? If you have patience and time you should check it out. The movie is pretty bad though, easily the worst one he has made. Great site btw, keep up the good work.
Emil 183 cm said on 27/Dec/15

TNT this because Norton is 182 cms (max 183 cms) while Clooney is 178-179 cms maximum! 4 cms between they are reliable!
Brendan said on 16/Sep/15
I wonder why Brad Pitt and Norton had same height in fight club.
Even in barefoot scenes.
T.N.T. said on 6/Aug/15
It's 'peculiar' that Norton is listed as circa 1.82-1.83m and Clooney is listed as 1.80m. Norton indisputably towers over Clooney (just google their names and find some images, all of which confirm how taller Norton is). Again this old worn phenomenon of upgrading the shorter ones and downgrading the truly taller ones is plain ludicrous.. Seriously, if you're so keen on upgrading the shorties, at least do some justice for the truly taller ones and list them at an Avatar height.
Mike said on 2/Aug/15
6ft max.
Sam said on 16/Jul/15
Almost laughed at his claim that he's taller than Hader.
grizz said on 10/Jul/15
@Sam,you can't seriously consider any height comparison with Brad Pitt? He's a notorious lift wearer.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jun/15
Can look 5ft11¾-6ft0½
Sam said on 4/Jun/15
He can seem only about 182 cm next to Brad Pitt much of the time, barely taller and often around the same.
an anonymous peach said on 27/May/15
Definitely a solid 6 footer. He can actually look 184cm alot.
Amaze said on 23/Apr/15
@grizz ahh he was but what can you do 5/6 guys jumped him I would have definitely planned revenge tho if that was me

@danny no like when you wake up you're 2cm taller and a hour or two you go to your usual daytime height. E.g. I go from 176 to 174
b-mint1994 said on 22/Apr/15
Looks like a genuine 6 footer to me. Great actor too.
danny said on 20/Apr/15
@Amaze That's amazing that people honestly believe you shrink 2 cm during the day. Medical data puts it spot on, just google it: people shrink 0.5 cm at most during the day.
grizz said on 14/Apr/15
@Amaze, spot on. He was a total alpha in American History X (until the rape part)
Amaze said on 12/Apr/15
He's tall for sure saw American history x glkd film he looked like a 6 footer he's around the 183cm mark for sure more chance of 184 than 182. No less than 6'. IMO wakes up at 185 shrinks to 183
KT said on 5/Apr/15
Definitely taller than Bruce Willis and Tilda Swinton in "Moonrise Kingdom." But he was definitely shorter than Bill Murray in that same movie. 6'0" appears accurate.
Judd said on 12/Mar/15
there's a scene in birdman where he stays (barefoot) next to keaton, who has shoes on (when they receive the standing ovation) and they were very close one to each other...i think Keaton is 5'9.5-75" and Norton 2,25" taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Mar/15
He can look 184cm at times
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 28/Feb/15
He looked at least 6ft in Birdman (which he delivered a brilliant, brash, fast-talking performance in). In my opinion, Norton is a strong 6ft.
Dejavu said on 28/Feb/15
He had an inch on Brad Pitt in fight club.
James said on 26/Feb/15
looked 182cm in fight club
MaskDeMasque said on 25/Feb/15
Didn't look 3 inches taller than Keaton in Birdman. I think Ed is 5'11 maybe 5'11.25.
cole said on 20/Feb/15
@Editor Rob: Another 6ft claim: (around one minute in) Click Here And did he just say he's one inch taller than Bill Hader? Surely that was a joke... Also here's a relatively new pic with Cumberbatch, from Variety: Click Here Would be interesting to see some behind the scenes clips and pics from that shoot, to see if one has a slight edge or if they really are bang on equal.
[Editor Rob: if hader is 5ft 11 then a lot of people would be much smaller, maybe he was kind of making an exaggeration or getting his own back by saying he was 5ft 11?]
MD said on 19/Feb/15
Not the best picture because both of them are stepping, but he here is with a 6'1.75" Tom Hiddleston:

This has to mean Hiddleston is taller than his listing, right? Because, otherwise, even straightened up, it appearss that's more than 1.75" inches in difference.
grizz said on 17/Feb/15
In yesterday's show on Jimmy Fallon he said he's 6ft tall.
Next to David Duchovny, one of the most honest 6ft guys I've ever seen.
Jim said on 7/Feb/15
Norton is at least 6'0. In The Grand Budapest Hotel, he's noticeably taller than everyone else in his scenes. Looks a solid 6'0+.
Arch Stanton said on 2/Feb/15
Lol Joe, 5'10 for Norton is outrageous. Pitt was wearing lifts in Fight Club to look taller than norton, it's been documented I think.
Joe said on 2/Feb/15
There is no way Ed Norton is 6 feet tall, he was shorter than Brad Pitt in Fight Club, Pitt had about an inch on Norton in the movie, Norton is 5'10".
jtm said on 19/Jan/15
haven't seen birdman but he was 3 inches taller than keaton at the birdman premiere with footwear disadvantage. i think norton is 5'11.5 and keaton is 5'8.

He is a little taller than Leodardo Decaprio
Not enaugh évidence he is realy taller than DiCaprio as leo has weaker posture , and with alec in one pic he looks taller in the other shorter so 5'11.75 is good
average slacker said on 26/Nov/14
6ft sloucher... just like me
Ferd said on 3/Nov/14
6'0 just slouches a lot, giving the impression of 5'11 or 5'10
cole said on 13/Oct/14
@James B: Yeah Ed's posture is definitely poor in that scene + Avery is standing tall. He's looked 182-183 cm zone pretty consistantly throughout his career if you ask me. I think he's what you'd call a 6ft sloucher, but maybe he could dip a fraction shy at his lowest. Keeping him at 6ft is fair imo.
James B said on 4/Sep/14
At 1.27 looks 5'11 next Avery brooks but maybe Nortons posture is poor?
Sam said on 22/Aug/14
Good actor, but a difficult guy. I thought he was maybe in excess of six feet when I first saw him in his "breakthrough" role in Primal Fear, since he looked at least 2 inches over Richard Gere. Often though, he can look like quite a weak six footer in some photos.
Emil 182.5 cm said on 7/Aug/14
A classic 6 foot sloucher.
Sonny Black said on 11/Jul/14
5'11. He looks short in most of his films, especially the basketball scene in American History X.

Solid 6'0 one of my favourite actors.
Balrog said on 3/Jun/14
Rob how tall you think Noah Emmerich is? He looked vissibly taller than Norton in Pride and Glory, at times he pulled off looking 6'3'', although 6'2'' range is possible.
[Editor Rob: could be 6ft 2.5]
gian92 said on 2/Jun/14
this is the one case where he is a legit 6'0 no more no less
Clay said on 5/May/14
Yup, legit 6'0''. Great actor too.
cole said on 16/Apr/14
182 cm range seems like a fair shout imo, but I get the 6ft claim. He's got to be pretty close to the mark. Not under 5'11.5.
Alex 6ft 0 said on 29/Mar/14
Telling 6'0 from 6'0.25 is impossible unless you measure them back to back and its still very close. I think 1/2-3/4 range is when you can start to tell more
Bon_ said on 23/Jan/14

yes, of course
Bon_ said on 19/Jan/14
looks a legit 6ft to me, 183 cm exactly

I'm watching Saturday Night Live, right now, and Edward is the host. Alec Baldwin just came on the stage as a surprise visit, and he's a quarter-inch to half-inch taller than Edward. Can't see any of their footwear, and god only knows if Alec is wearing lifts, but just reporting what I see. 6'0" seems to be the absolute most Edward could be.

He was at least an inch taller than willis

He us nooooot 6ft, brad pitt was inch taller in fight club, and stood a little ovwr 6'9 jared leto, he's a solid 5'10, no taller no shorter, looked that height in fight club and everytime he stood by brad pitt
Dejavu said on 5/Oct/13
Looks at least an inch taller than Bruce Willis. I think he is 6'0.
Bard said on 12/Sep/13
I'd say slightly under but close enough, it's a reasonable claim.
Dejavu said on 7/Sep/13
183 is fair
cole said on 31/Jul/13
5'11.75 is a better fit imo, weak 6'.
Phantom said on 28/Jul/13
Looked 6'0" in The Incredible Hulk if Liv Tyler really is 5'10".
bodwaya said on 2/Jul/13
when he guest starred in modern family he was eye level with tye and he was much shorter then 6 foot 3 john voight in pride and flory
cole said on 30/Jun/13
I think 181-182 cm for Norton is more accurate. Looked at least 3 cm shorter than 6'1 Bill Murray. And about 3 cm taller than 5'10/5'10.5 Bruce Willis.
Emil said on 30/Jun/13
@Rob, have you seen the pics? Norton is clearly over 1 inch taller than Pitt

He is not under 5'11.5 for sure
truth178cm said on 1/Jun/13
I think that Pitt is exactly 179cm and Norton exactly 181cm strong 5ft10 and 5ft11.
lelman said on 13/May/13
Him and Pitt look near identical height in almost all photo's I have seen. If we conclude the Pitt wears lifts and he doesn't, and Pitt is legit 5'11", then about 6' should be about right - maybe very slightly under, but I think 6 is fair.

The Horse of FUNK said on 30/Mar/13
I think he's under 6'. Having watched Rounders recently where he starred with Matt Damon. Now, not just in a few scenes, but throughout the entire movie I could barely see any difference between the two. Either Matt Damon is the 5'10" he claims or Norton isn't quite 6' and more 5'11".
Mr. Kaplan said on 24/Mar/13
He's 5'11". Rounds up to 6'.
elias said on 5/Feb/13
Click Here taller than 1.79 james franco so 1.83 seems right
Hew said on 30/Dec/12
5'11 - 5'11.5 is a good bet, not the full 6ft.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/12
If Willis is 5ft11.5, Norton looks a fraction over 6ft
Steve said on 7/Dec/12
Edward Norton is 181 cm, and Brad Pitt is 176 cm. Norton is easily 2.5 inches taller.
Yaspaa said on 3/Dec/12
Hang on, you mention people not using movie's as a good source, and then you judge his height by the comparison of him next to his 5'1 girlfriend. So you can determine a 1 inch difference with confidence from that? Dude.
Joey said on 30/Nov/12
you guys should quit estimating height solely by how someone looked in can take in into account but you need other sources as well...if an actor looks to short next to an actress, in ed's case liv tyler, then he is made taller ...elevator shoes, camera angles etc... as simple as that...this guy from twilight, not the vamp but that other black haired dude, stood on a box in a couple of scences cos he is too short lol....ed norton is a very weak 5'11 juding from how he looks next to his 5'1 gf..
Olly said on 14/Nov/12
Saw one of his outfits at London's V&A from Fight Club
and it looked small.
Silent d said on 4/Nov/12
I am seriously doubting his 6 foot claim. He looked a couples of inches taller than phillip seymour hoffman and maybe ten cm taller than harvey keitel in red dragon. I don't judge movies but he looks 180cm in rounders and red dragon. Werid. I'll stick with 6 foot.

Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 23/Oct/12
How the hell did Brad Pitt managed to look taller than this guy?

Norton can be 6'0 or pretty damn close to it, he looks it next to Liv Tyler, but there isn't even a single pic where he looks that height next to Brad Pitt, he seems always 5'10 range next to him.

I smell lifts for Pitt, more now than ever.
Aragorn 5'11 said on 19/Oct/12
Edward Norton is not 6'0 tall. He's definitely a legit 5'11 like Brad Pitt. They're both the same height in Fight Club.
bodwaya said on 8/Oct/12
woody is not 5 foot9 he was equal height to 6 foot javiar bardem in no country for old men. Someone post a pic of them together in Larry vs flynt cause they. were same height. lastly dmaon is 5 foot 1. if he was close to dmaon height he would almost be 5 foot10. so u contradicted yourself.
Silent d said on 8/Oct/12
He looked pretty close to matt damon's height in rounders. I don't know if damon wore lifts in that movie. He was pretty close to famke janssen. In all the other movies he looks 6 foot. 6 foot seems accurate. No way he is same height as woody.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Oct/12
I think 6ft is dead on. He's above average/tall. Willis is at least 5ft11 today. Probably 181cm if not 182cm
Dejavu said on 15/Sep/12
He has an inch on Bruce Willis.

182-183cm. Bill Murray appears to have an inch on him at least.
Mike said on 27/Aug/12
He filmed parts of Moonrise Kingdom on my road and was in my yard on a number of occasions throughout the few weeks they were filming. He is definitly 6 ft tall. I'm 5-9 and he was easily 2 or 3 inches taller than me. Very nice man by the way.

bodwaya says on 24/Aug/12 in Italian job he had 2 inches on 5 foot 10 jason stathum. He is one of the few celebs who looks 6 foot .
Statham is more 176/5f9 rather than 178/5f10. But I would still put Morton @ 183/6f. I82/5f11.5 is a possibility.

Brad Pitt is 5ft 10.75in (1.80 m) in my opinion, Norton is definitely taller. I still think 183 cm is accurate for Norton but between 1.82 m & 1.83 m is certainly possible.
Jack said on 9/Aug/12
Maybe 5'11.75"(182 cm) is closer.
ray 6' 158 lbs said on 8/Aug/12
he seemsed 1 inch taller than brad pitt who is 5'10" and 6' in big shooze so i guess he has a poor poster but i think he is a weak six footer
Jake: 1.82 m-- 1.83 m-- 1.84 m said on 6/Aug/12
Right on 6 feet, or an easy 1.83 m is correct.
soothdoom said on 6/Aug/12
brad pitt who is no more than 6 feet tall was towering over ed norton in fight club. Edward, at best is 5.8 or 5.9
BigT said on 4/Aug/12
Between 180-183 cm for sure, this guy is above average. I can live with 6ft, altough I think he looks closer to 5'11 at times.
mike 6 feet out of bed said on 28/Jul/12
Mr Rs right
linke said on 31/Jan/12
Norton does looks like 6 ft guy.Plus Mr R is vouching for him.We dont see him upgrading many actors.
The Karl said on 31/Jan/12
i bet he rounds up to six foot, no big deal. an exact measure, he's probably 5-11 and change. he's definitely above average, and he's definitely not 6-1, so we're splitting hairs between 5-11 and six foot.
James said on 29/Jan/12
rob are u considering 182cm or are u still convinced he's 183cm?
[Editor Rob: 182 is a possible for him because brooks in person 2-3 years ago didn't look taller than the challenger I measured just under 6ft 0.5!]
James said on 28/Jan/12
rob could u please try and give me your opinons on this.

last week i watched american history and noticed that 6'1 avery brooks had near 2 inches on norton in the scenes they shared together

if you go too 1:27 in the trailer you will see what i am talking about
Click Here

maybe 181cm 182cm could be closer for edward norton? there was not much difference between him and brad pitt either in fight club. overall i think norton could be a weak 6ft.
[Editor Rob: he can look around 182 yeah, he was taller than stacy in the film, but shorter than avery.]
Ajax said on 21/Jan/12
Yes I understand but what I'm trying to say is that when your a height + 3/4 and you say your the next inch up, that's not exaggerating to me because if they stood next to someone the next inch up, people would probably think there the same height anyway.
Ajax said on 21/Jan/12
Rob just my opinion it's fine if you disagree, when someone is something like 5'11.75 and they say 6ft or whatever height + 3/4", that's not exaggerating.
[Editor Rob: there's a ton of actors in the 5ft 11.5-11.75 range who will round up to 6ft.

It's rare to find any actor 182cm actually say it, and I think everytime an actor is listed 182cm you have people wanting to 'give him' 6ft. There's as many 5ft 11.75 actors as 6ft actors, yet if you go through this site there are far more listed 6ft than 11.75...]
jake, 1.82 m/ 1.83 m said on 15/Jan/12
182 cm minimum, he could be 6" 0.25 (1.835 m).
hungarian said on 12/Jan/12
Thraex- as I saw, he is 6-2 on the criminal record page, which means that he is at least 6'0.
hungarian said on 12/Jan/12
In the American History X he looks only slightly shorter than the 6'1-listed Ethan Suplee, who is not a very well known actor, so his listed height is probably right.Norton is probably 6 feet tall.

Rob, be honest! do you think he really looks 6' next to 195 Tim Robbins? He looks at least 16 cms shorter than him to me!
[Editor Rob: in general he looks near 6 foot, I don't think he's nearer 5ft 11 than 6ft though. Always a chance with people to be 1/4 inch under a mark and say 6 foot though.]

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

If he had 1 inch on you, he would pass for 5´10, not 6ft...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
