How tall is Edward Norton

Edward Norton's Height

6ft 0 (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" and repeated that on Joe Rogan in 2019 "I'm 6 feet tall but I literally if I'm in shape I weigh like 155." He also may have lost a fraction, because in 2006 he mentioned "I broke my spine in like three places....I cracked my 10th, 11th and especially my 12th thoracic vertebra".

Agreed @rampage. Both legit 6 footers.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/23
Norton and Brody I'd brand as solid 6ft dudes...183cm evening
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Aug/23
Might still make 6ft when measured...never stands well

Ed’s movie, ‘Fight Club’, about a case of extreme schizophrenia, is one of the best films I’ve ever seen. It was voted high in a run down called ‘50 Films To See Before You Die’.

Consequently, I have acquired many of them - but I had quite a few already.

This film is drawing to a close now. Then I will hear The Pixies’ song ‘You’re in my Mind’ and then I shall start it up all over again. Yes, it really is that great!

Gerald S said on 2/Jun/23
Norton struck me as 5'11.5" range in The Score with Robert De Niro (who looked 174cm range at the time). I doubt Norton was ever a full six feet, remember he has always maintained an exceptionally slim build. Today, Norton is probably 5'11" tops, Norton and Craig were very similar height wise in the latest Knives Out film.
Rowanisawesome said on 2/Mar/23
I think he’s a solid 6 feet tall, maybe a fraction over when he was younger. Now he’s like 5’11.5-6’0 due to the back injury and age.
Slim1.75m said on 26/Feb/23
6'0¼ imo
P.S comment if you think Norton's a better Hulk than Ruffalo.
Slim1.75m said on 25/Feb/23
Rob is he 5'11¼-5'11½ NOW!

Fight Club is just so AMUSING - it has everything a good film should have.

I bought it for my Dad as it simply blew me away, and we loved the same movies; the music is brilliant as well!

6ft. 💪😆
berta said on 4/Jan/23
i have neen the evidence of a strong 6 footer. I know he was listed at 184 years ago. But we cant ignore that he and brad pitt did look the same height. Yes i agree that brad pitt have better posture and norton could seem 1 cm taller sometimes. In relity there was maybe only 2 cm beetween them. Brad at 180,5 and norton 182,5. Today he may be 182 flat. In the new movie with daniel craig. Glass onion he didnt look more than 1 inch taller than craig. Also photos of them together show that there isnt that mutch beetween them. Click Here This is the only one. He actually look over 6 feet here, but in all the others it look more like a 178-178,5 guy beside a 181,5 guy. Also batista dwarfs him. Could have been 6 foot but i dont get how 3 cm beetween him and brad is possible. 182,5 then 182 now.
Malcolm Oliver said on 28/Sep/22
Pitt gets mistaken for this mark too because he stacks up next to guys like Norton, Cooper, Gosling so well. The list goes on.

Hell, Tyler Durden is meant to be what is the Narrator himself, basically insinuating they are about the same in everything. No wonder Brad gets the 6ft pass.
Leesheff85 said on 16/Sep/22
192cm leprechaun you are a Joke this guy is a good 6 foot minimum stop downgrading people it's desperate
192cm Leprechaun said on 11/Sep/22
Norton seems closer to 5'10" than 6'. To be 6', he'd have to grow about 2 inches. 6' is Christopher Llyod in the 80s.
Dacquan Alexander said on 11/Sep/22
Finally someone that is honest about their height.
Paul 183cm 11:00Am said on 11/Aug/22
The same height's bale:

184cm wake UP & 182cm before bed

I agree with 182.5cm, in France is 183cm.
E.M. said on 16/Apr/22
Rob Paul, what do you think of these photographs?

Click Here

Based upon the eye levels of both Edward Norton and Brad Pitt, it appears that Norton is exactly half an inch taller than Pitt. This appears to be half an inch, because Norton's eyes aren't fully above that of Pitt's, but the top of them is higher than the peak of Pitt's eyes.

A one inch difference involves a person's eyes being in an entirely different place, a height, on top of the other's. Here, it's a compromise.

This would make Edward Norton 5 foot 11 and a half, precisely.
Editor Rob
There are photos out there in which Pitt can even look taller than Ed, but Norton's posture never seems anywhere as good as Brad's, nor do I suspect his footwear to be as thick as Brad's.
Bg guy said on 15/Apr/22
Why he looks identical to matt damon in rounders rob?
Editor Rob
With Norton's variable posture, sometimes he looks 5ft 11
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 4/Apr/22
Why does Tom Hiddleston appear several inches taller compared to Edward Norton?

Click Here

Their posture is identical in this shot.
dreus23 said on 29/Mar/22

If you look closely in that second pic you can see that's three cm difference. Norton is slouching a lot yet if you look at the back of his head is quite a bit taller than Brad Pitt

Btw, fight club isn't a good way to prove Norton's height. He plays a sad character who purposely is never shown standing at his tallest simply because of bad self-confidence. Meanwhile, Tyler Durden is self-confidence himself and always struts with good posture
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Mar/22
I don't buy less than 6ft...
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 10/Dec/21
5'11.5. Hes got about an inch on brad pitt and only looked 3 inches taller than keaton who was 5'8.5 tops in birdman
Dpnysi said on 7/Dec/21
He's under 6 ft tall I stood next to him in an elevator in the building I used to work at I'm 6'1 in my socks and it was definitely more than an inch shorter than me. Almost every guy was 5'10 or 5'11 cheats and say they six feet tall cuz that's the height everyone wants to be a minimum of
He1ghtexpert49 said on 1/Dec/21
Is he really 6'? I haven't done much research on him but he did look shorter than Brad Pitt in fight club.

Legit six foot

He’ll edge bale and evans
Slim 6'1.5" said on 30/Jul/21
Next to Brad Pitt in dr martens and Matt Damon in rounders he looked 6ft tops

Sorry rampage I disagree with you

183.5-184 for Norton and cage is too much
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jul/21
Slim, nowadays yes but peak I think both Ed and Nic could look strong 6ft
slim 6'1 said on 9/Jul/21
Sorry rampage, Norton is nothing over 6ft flat same as cage

Brody I’m not too sure about as I’ve never seen him much
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jul/21
I think all three with them you could make the case for a little over 6ft...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/21
Rob, who do you think would measure tallest peak out of Norton, Cage and Brody?
Editor Rob
At times I've probably switched between all first thought was Cage in the 80's and 90s...(maybe he's a touch shorter now).
Mikester said on 31/Mar/21
yeah 180's for american history. solid 6ft and he was quite muscular in the movie, developed pecs, big arms...

this guy is 6ft! ithought he was 5.10 !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chaos Control 6'2.5 said on 27/Feb/21
Solid 6’, he’s the same as (5’9?) Liv Tyler in heels
MaskDeMasque said on 25/Feb/21
Hmm. I never really saw Ed as the full 6 foot. He looked about 3 inches taller than 5'8.5 Keaton in Birdman. He had about an inch on Pitt in Fight club. Id say 5'11.5 or 5'11.75 at most.
slim 6'1 said on 10/Feb/21
In American history x He had really cool muscles
slim 6'1 said on 10/Feb/21
In American history x I think about 80-85kg
slim 6'1 said on 10/Feb/21
183cm for peak, he’d definitely edge out Christian bale by 1cm
Magnus 6'4" said on 1/Feb/21
Barely 6’0 peak, I’d say 5’11 3/4 or 5’11 7/8 now.
I think that because of him not being in a lot of movies nowadays, people don’t realise that he shrunk.
Roby Italy said on 24/Jan/21
Rob, how do you think of his weight on the American History X? I think on the 175 lbs?

Perfect listing if anything an eighth over six foot is likely 👍
CDS said on 8/Nov/20
Was just researching the amazing 1998 film,"American history X", and 6'0.75" (listed here) Ethan suplee has a good 2, maybe 3" over Edward? Now even though I guessed ed at closer to 5'11" than 6 foot, could this be right?? Or does Suplee need an upgrade. Honestly I think suplees listing is about spot on...

@ Chilling, they do heal but with certain height loss

Ah! Two great new pictures of Ed with AHS's Connie Britton and the other of him with the lovely Liv Tyler!

6ft. 😁👍
Slim 6'1@ said on 4/Nov/20
He’s got the proportions of a tall guy unlike Pitt who wore those boots and Damon in rounders who he easily edged out

I was under the impression that only disc degeneration or maybe hernia could cause height the case of vertebrae cracking, wouldn't they heal?

🎊🎁🎂 Happy🎈Birthday Edward! 🎂🎁🎊

Wishing the modest but gorgeous Ed Norton a fantastic 51st Birthday. When Liv Tyler acted with him in 'The Incredible Hulk', she mentioned what a fab body he has. Then I took it in when I watched 'Fight Club', which has to be one of my all-time favourite films. Even the music is out of this world, and got me into the psychedelic rock group The Pixies.

Ed gets 6ft 😉🧚‍♂️🧚‍♀️👍

182 sucks but so does 184. 183-183.5 is perfect. definatly taller than christian bale. and definatly taller than legit 5 11 brad pitt in fight club
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Aug/20
It was possible 5'11 5/8 now and 6'0 peak.
CDS said on 31/Jul/20
One thing I noticed about ed in "the people vs Larry flynt", seeing him stand next to woody. Their shoulders lined up almost perfectly, but where ed gained the height advantage was his head, he actually has a taller head than woody, who I would say has an avg sized head, not big or small. I think ed having a larger than avg head might actually be where it throws off many comparisons, and can make him appear shorter than he is?
Hulk.23 said on 31/Jul/20
He’s a tricky guy like others...sometimes he looks a genuine six footer and others a weak one. I think six footer with reserve: 5’11.75/182cm
CDS said on 29/Jul/20
Watching movie, "motherless brooklyn", and ed actually looks about dead even with 5'11" alec Baldwin. I was surprised actually, I thought ed would edge out alec for sure??
CDS said on 26/Jul/20
Zach M said on 12/Sep/19
I just briefly met him after the Joker premiere here in Toronto. I stand exactly 5'11 and I was eye to eye with him

Was just rewatching the 1996 film, the people vs. Larry flynt, the other day, and ed looks ever-so-barely taller than his constantly slouching costar, 5'9.5" (listed here) woody harrelson. I would say absolutely no more than Zach m's in person encounter estimate. See him in the film "primal fear", released that same year, and he barely edges out his 5'10" costar, Richard gere, who like woody, doesn't have the world's greatest posture...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jul/20
Has looked a strong 6ft in the past
Keith Bacchus said on 10/Jul/20
I thought he was 5 foot 10 didnt know he was taller
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jul/20
Above quote:

"he mentioned "I broke my spine in like three places....I cracked my 10th, 11th and especially my 12th thoracic vertebra"."

This could have already result him to be 5'11 3/4 back in 2006 and 5'11 1/2 now as his spine starts bending at 50 now.
Rent said on 15/Jun/20
In Motherless Brooklyn, he ´s eye to eye with Alec Baldwin, maybe a half inch taller but no more.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Jun/20
I mean he isn't below 5'11 1/2 in real.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Jun/20

He look at least 5'9 1/2 standing alone, i refer his frame can look between 5'9-5'10 but he isn't this before 5'11 1/2.
Jonas Henrikssen, said on 8/Nov/19
His frame looks like he is 5 9
Johan 185 cm said on 5/Nov/19
More 5'11" range today. Good chance he lost a cm with his spine injury. Did look a decent 182 cm at his peak. 5'11.25" today, 5'11.75-6' at peak.
Keith 5'10 said on 4/Nov/19
In 90s he was 183 cm. Now he looks around 181.5-182 cm.
Emil said on 3/Nov/19

There's no way Edward is 5'8. He might be 5'11.5-.75 range these days, but your claim is not realistic.
He has a very poor posture thoug, and that might trick some people's minds
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Nov/19
Primal Fear/American X/Rounders era Norton I think could have been a strong 6ft
Emil said on 2/Nov/19
Brad Pitt has never been as tall as Norton - he's a renowned lift wearer and he's always exaggeratig his posture, whereas Norton is a bit of a lounger in that regard
Emil said on 2/Nov/19

Maybe 6'0.25 at his peak and 5'11.75 now?
He looked quite tall backed in his American History X days, but he's really struggling to even look weak 6 foot these days.
Editor Rob
6ft or 6ft .25 peak is a more believable range than say only 5ft 11.75.
JesusIsKing said on 31/Oct/19
Hey Rob, how long is Ed Norton's head?

9.5 inch at least?
Editor Rob
I doubt it would be less than around that range.

@Luke Ellsworth 182range looks different than 183range. I know this..
Luke Ellsworth said on 11/Jul/19
LOL like there is any difference between 5'11.75-80" and 6'
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Jun/19
Rob, is it at all possible he went from solid/strong 6ft range to weak?
Editor Rob
He's a candidate for 1/4 to 1/3rd inch loss...given accident, maybe in next few years 5ft 11.5 range is what he'll start to look. In the 90's I'd give him a decent 6ft
QM6'1QM said on 27/Jun/19
5'11.75-80" as peak height.
5'11.5-60" nowadays.
Do you agree with me, guys ?
Kate12344 said on 30/Apr/19
Met Ed (he prefers Edward) Norton and there is ABSOLUTELY no way he is over 5’8” generously. Maybe he lost height due to the injury but even in older movies he was not 6’. He is nice and a great actor, though!
179cm guy said on 26/Mar/19
Rob, wouldn't you agree that Norton needs a current listing of 5'11.5 added based on these pictures with Joseph Gordon-Levitt ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ), and Bruce Willis ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ?
Editor Rob
It's feasible he's lost a small fraction, but a full half inch? I can see how at times it seems possible!
billionaireslayer said on 23/Mar/19
Little over 5'11 guy but does appear taller due to his skinny frame, fractionally taller than Pitt
179cm guy said on 1/Jan/19
Peak 6'0 (182.9cm). Nowadays 5'11 5/8 (181.9cm). Probably still not enough loss for a peak height to be added though.
Dhouser said on 17/Dec/18
Looks pretty tall most of the time, he's usually skinny which helps.
BT said on 12/Oct/18
@Editor Rob: Recent pic with Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Click Here. Levitt is closer to the camera and Norton could maybe stand i little better, but he does look under 6ft more often than not now a days.
Editor Rob
5ft 11.5-11.75 is a figure he might be heading into soon, maybe the back damage did effect him a fraction.
Sonny Black said on 28/Jul/18
Sometimes he looks like he could be 6ft but most of the time he looks more 5’11 to me. Usually a 6ft guy stands out on screen to a degree, he never really looks that tall.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Jul/18
Lost 5mm he broke his spine. 182.3-182.5cm.
KH said on 8/Jul/18
I think he is minimum 6'0.25. I dont believe he has lost any height. Too young I know he has had some injuries.

Looked 6’0.5-6’1 in American History X.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jun/18
Could pass for 6ft1 in the 90’s. A fraction over 6ft wouldn’t surprise me
mannexus288517 said on 20/May/18
i believe :
184.2 cm peak height
183 cm now. just an assumption
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Apr/18
Rob, i think Norton listing worth to knock down 1/4.
Myself said on 4/Apr/18
Rob, you believe he lost half a cm to 1 cm after the injury?
I cracked 3 or 4 vertebras aswell when i was like 5 or 6 years old, in Russia, stayed some months in hospital and so on; after some years (or less) another doctor, in Italy (family friend), checked my x ray and he didn't really believe i have had any serious injuries. I am still wondering if those (they were pretty rude) that made the x ray in Russia after i fell, deliberately lied in hope of getting money, since they realised me and my mom came from Italy (90s and early 2000s hard times for the destroyed country...)....If so, by cracking a few vertebras you lose 0,5 to 1 cm on average?
I am not sure about my case, because my armspan is about 195 or 194,5 cm, and that is not huge, it's actually just average or a little below average for my 192 cm in height, so i have hard time believing that i would have had a longer height than armspan, or exacly the same....but who knows
Editor Rob
A 1/4 inch is probably likely
Robert Wadlow said on 8/Mar/18

HonestSlovene said on 8/Feb/18
@Gonzale If you mean Fight Club (one of my favourite movies), then 5'10.5" Pitt wore lifts in order to appear around 6'0" and close to Norton, who is most likely around 6'1" in regular shoes.
Gonzale said on 5/Feb/18
Still shocked by this listing. He barely if ever appeared taller than Pitt.

HonestSlovene said on 9/Jan/18
He is 6'0" though definitely more 182 cm than 183 cm range. 184 cm + is insane as well as 181 cm or less. If he measured he'd probably be just 0.25 under 6'0".

I'd have given Norton a slight edge, but sometimes he too can seem like he is a weak 6 footer!
an anonymous peach said on 21/Oct/17
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...

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.
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?

@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.

He wears good shoes and tall hair.

@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

@ 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.

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.

I have to be honest but from this picture Edward Norton is either over 6'0" or Connie Britton is under 5'7".

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.

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.
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

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.

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.

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.

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".

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.

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.

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

yes, of course
