He looks noticeably short next to plenty of celebrities who aren't even that tall themselves so he's probably not over the listing.
Mikey Shatz said on 20/Aug/20
I met him a couple years ago; I’m 5’8.5” and he was just slightly taller than me. 5’9” is spot on.
'Annonymous' said on 19/Apr/19
Although Fred said 5'9", however, google mentions him as 172 cm, maybe Fred meant that he measures 5'9" in shoes. Rob, look at Fred's photos next to Stephan Jenkins from 2001 (Stephan is closer to the camera than Fred): Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Now look at them the moment they both are at a similar distance from the camera: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Next to Stephan Fred could look like around 5'8. "Now look at pictures of Fred next to James DeBello from 1999, I don't see three inches difference between them: Click Here Click Here
I think you should also look at the latest pictures of Fred alongside John Travolta: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Travolta is 65 today and I think it's time to downgrade his current height to 181 cm. As for Fred, I doubts that Ne-Yo would be taller than Fred, and I believe that Fred could beat someone like Bruce Lee (in Lee's case I wouldn't like to go over 5'7.5"). I noticed that Fred sometimes holds a loose posture. Rob, do you see the chance for Fred at 5'7.75" and could you give Travolta downgrade to 5'11.25"?
Editor Rob
You could argue fred With Ice Cube is struggling to seem near 5ft 8.

Overall I think somewhere between 5ft 7 and 8 is what Fred looks, but I have went with the middle. Travolta at 181 today is looking very possible, unless he still manages to stand taller than he seems when measured.

He is 5'6'' I can confirm. I met him and I'm 5'9'' and he was much shorter than me.
Cameron said on 24/Aug/17
Weird he never struck me as very short. Certainly not 5'7" flat like some on here are saying. Figured he was a solid 5'8" at worst.
Anonymous said on 8/Jul/17
I met the guy. I'm 5'8"½ and he was kinda shorter than me. My guess is 5'6"
Aza said on 22/Oct/16
'Gimme something to break.....'. 5'7.5 is a very good shout.
Arch Stanton said on 20/Oct/16
Surprisingly shorter. One of those guys you'd otherwise think of as big and imposing.
Normal. Tall guy said on 12/Jul/16
He is more closer to 5'6 i would say if hes lucky, someone should start measuring peoples arm span bcoz you cant lie about that n its a very accurate way to get a height measurement, try it youll see, comes out same as your height
Charizard said on 1/Jul/16
Biggest lift wearer... I've seen him live with my
Brother and he jumped on the stage randomly and his shoes flew out and the lifts came out
Of the shoes too.. Embarrassing moment for him as he was trying to laugh it off.. After witnessing that he's Approximately 169cm
Phil said on 22/May/16
i thought he was 5 foot 9. is he really shorter than Eminem? I don't think so.
tony t. said on 22/Apr/15
Rob, could you please make a listing for Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park? He's supposedly around 5'11.
Brad said on 19/Sep/14
5' 7". Ditched the cap put on his lack of hair after years of laughter.
slap said on 2/Jun/14
he looks 5'10, 5'9
ekt said on 16/May/14
no way is durst over 5'7, those people who are saying 5'9 or 5'10 are on something
Alex 6'0 said on 6/May/14
Rob, what do you think? Here with 6'1 Carson Daly and 6'0 Kid Rock who looks more 5'11.5 with Daly? Durst def looks maybe more 5'7 flat here?

Editor Rob
not sure he really looks that short there
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 16/Oct/13
He has also claimed 5'8 too. He def looks shorter than 5'8. I think Rob would be clearly taller than him in a pic. My guess is 5'7
Len said on 14/Sep/13
He's about 5'7". And with a 'tude that writes checks his body can't cash.
DJ Rock said on 24/Aug/13
I guess he's about 5'10.
Esperance said on 4/Aug/13
I think Fred is telling the truth and he looks about 5 ft 9. I don't think he ever looks shorter than this.
Gurd said on 9/Jun/13
I met them both at a concert 2 weeks ago. I'm 5' 8.5" Fred is 5' 9" and Wes 5' 10".
Gaz said on 8/Apr/13
Fred with 5'8'' listed Ice Cube Click Here and fred with 5'8'' listed Cristian Slater Click Here he appears shorter than his 5'7.5 listings.. here is he is with 5'6''' jack Black it is not the best picture to compare them tho Click Here

I thought borland was like 6'4 something,platforms
Godred said on 27/Jan/12
@Vegas - interesting so best guess for Borland barefoot?
Vegas said on 17/Jan/12
Godred says on 10/Dec/11
If Durst is really 5`6 what height does that make Wes Borland who is supposed to be 6`1 ?

borland is nowhere near 6'1, i met him and took a photo with him, i had inches on him at 5'11
Godred said on 10/Dec/11

Maximus Meridius said on 25/Nov/11
Rob he should be downgraded he was listed as 5ft 6in in his Limp Bizkit days which is his real height after all he is not 5ft 8in he is 5ft 6in.
sl said on 15/Nov/11
definately more like 5'6" than 5'8". i've seen him in person at a show and he was shorter than me and i am only 5'8"
ja said on 7/Sep/11

I think you should lower him
drok said on 21/Aug/11
met him in 2001 when i was 17, I was about 5'10 at the time and he was definitely 3-4 inches shorter than me, small guy who dresses two sizes too big. love his music though.

I mentioned this before, but I saw an excellent Fred Durst lookalike in Hollywood during the Halloween parade several years ago. As I passed him, I realized that IT WAS Fred Durst! He was about 5-8. I was really surprised. He looks huge on stage.

I thought you had him at 5'7" before, but maybe not.

Hes not 5'8 bt I wouldn't go as low as 5'5. 5'6-5'7 range looks right.

Yeah, him with Jon Davis says 5'6" range, 5'7" at the most is all he is.
Mathew said on 6/Jun/11
Here is limp bizkit performing with Korn in 1998, just after the 2:30 mark they zoom in such that you can compare his height with Jonathan Davis of Korn:
Click Here
Jon Davis claims 6'2", and I think he's more a weak 6'2" rather than a strong 6'2" personally. Assuming this is the case, Durst looks 5'7" max to me.

Legend said on 31/Mar/11
Wow, I always thought he was around 5'9. I guess 5'6.5 is right for him in my opinion.
Viper said on 14/Mar/11
whoa, he could be 5-5
Vegas said on 13/Mar/11
looks really short with snoop Click Here
Phil said on 13/Mar/11
5 foot 5 or 5 foot 6
Brad said on 19/Feb/11
Subtract a 1/4" and that's all he is: 5' 7". 5' 8" must have been a G thing, discard.
jake said on 18/Feb/11
I'd say 5' 7.25"
Anonymous said on 17/Feb/11
Does that make drummer John Otto about 5 ft 6? Durst is a couple of inches taller than his good friend Ben Stiller.
Wolverine said on 9/Jun/09
5'8 could be it, maybe a bit smaller. A friend of mine (the guy with the yellow shirt) was on stage with him at Rock am Ring 2009 in Germany ( Click Here ), the guy is not even 5'7. Fred looked as he had the same height, maybe a bit taller.
glenn said on 16/Dec/08
he surprised me by looking 5-9 at a screening 1 1/2 ago.he directed an independent a white suit and dress shoes.
HeightDetector said on 15/Dec/08
Yeah, Glenn, but I'm pretty sure this is a "Tom Cruise-esque" deal in the fact that Durst always tries to come off taller thnan he is. He says 5'10, I say 5'8, and the person that e-mails Rob says 5'5.

Anyways, now that I looked at the URL in commenter "Rafe"'s comment, I do believe that Durst is probably around 5'5 or 5'6.

One thing is settled, however:

HeightDetector said on 10/Dec/08
Durst is probably around 5'8 or 5'9. I don't know about 5'10 as that one commenter below me said. Wes Borland on the other hand is a monster. He is very tall. Just a guess, but I think it's be safe to say Wes is about 6'2 or 6'3. He is very tall.
Rafe said on 24/Nov/08
he must be around 5'7 look here Click Here
james is 5'10
Mr. R said on 3/Aug/08
This is close. I see him around town.
Alex said on 19/May/08
Him and Eminem who is 5'8 tops were the same height pretty much. I never seen Fred in person to get a good estimate but he just gives me a 5'8 impression.
glenn said on 19/Apr/08
i believe he is closer to 5-9 now,the more i bump into him.he claims 5-10.
Anon2008 said on 18/Apr/08
Shawn, I've worn low-heeled sneakers and put stuff in them before making me another .5 inches taller, it's pretty easy to do. It's easier to hide with pants than shorts of course. Fred seems to have a big ego right? He could easily put something in shoes like that, that's all I'm saying.
glenn said on 18/Apr/08
read below.
Alex said on 17/Apr/08
I do remember Kid Rock had a good few inches on Durst. I'd say 6'0 for Kid Rock and 5'8 for Durst.
glenn said on 29/Dec/07
durst is 5-8.5 to 5-9.the more i see and examine him.
Shawn Jones said on 28/Dec/07
I think he looks so short all the time is because he just has bad posture. He actually seems like one of those rare celebs that doesn't care about his height. A 5'8" guy like him with a stocky frame, who never stands straight, wears always low-heeled sneakers and baggy clothes is going to appear shorter. But standing fully straight he's actually 5'8". Glenn and Mr. R would know better than any of us, they've seen him in the flesh.
Mike said on 26/Oct/07
My first impression of this guy is 5'6. He has a chunky frame and not-so-good posture. Maybe 5'7 if he is standing erect ?
Josh said on 7/Oct/07
No way...I am going to look for the picture, but I met Fred when I was about 12. I remember being shocked when I met him because he was barely any taller than me or my 5'3" sister. He is definately no more than 5'6" but probably closer to 5'5". Glenn you seam to be leaning back slightly in your picture, maybe you are giving him a few more inches...
Markus said on 24/Aug/07
I wonder how tall Limp Bizkit's bassplayer Sam Rivers is. Looks about 2 inches taller than Wes, maybe 6-2.
Alex said on 4/Aug/07
Glenn, yea 5'8 is what I think he looks. He's the exact height as Eminem pretty much and Eminem is no more than 5'8. The 5'5 estimates make no sense.
Glenn said on 30/Jul/07
I dont think I ever met wes.he does look about that.fred has claimed 5-10.and your right,he can look 5-9 next to otto.hmm.maybe he is.saw him recently.5-8.5 or so.
d said on 28/Jul/07
john otto's 5'7. he has it on his myspace.. fred will be about 5'9. fred's leaning sideways a bit
anonymous said on 16/Jul/07
How tall is Wes Borland? i think he is 6ft tall.
glenn said on 14/Jun/07
thank you mr.r.i have a recent pic of the 2 of us.him in his director phase look.
Mr. R said on 14/Jun/07
Glenn, I agree. Fred is 5-8. I see him around Hollywood frequently.
glenn said on 13/Jun/07
fred is 5-8.
Anonymous said on 12/Jun/07
Hey in that pic, does glenn have an unimaginably large head? I'd say Fred's about 5'6.5"-5'7" judging from that pic because, even if glenn's looking up, the eye levels and the beanie sort of give it away.
Alex said on 15/May/07
Durst doesn't look any taller than 5'8 Eminem.
Brad said on 11/May/07
I just saw him without his hat. No wonder he wore them for years.
Glenn said on 11/Jan/07
Thanks Briohn! I do it for people like you that appreciate make the site too!
BriOnH said on 10/Jan/07
Glen your head isn't big imo. You do look taller then 5'8". I am the tiniest bit under 5'8" (.15 inch) so I am pretty close to you. I really enjoy seing you next to all these celebs cause it's about what I stack up to them. Thanks for you photos!! YOU ARE AWESOME GLENN!
Middle-sized Cat said on 11/Dec/06
Have been told that I look like Fred Durst!
Glenn said on 8/Dec/06
And what do you look like anonymous?
Anonymous said on 7/Dec/06
Yeah, he looks like 5'8 next to Glenn, Glenn always looks taller than 5'8 in pictures because of his big head. Anyway, Fred Durst looks very funny there, his face in that pic makes me LMAO!
D. Ray Morton said on 4/Nov/06
Yeah...J. tall is he? Looks 5'5".

Where is Mr. R, btw?
Markus said on 3/Nov/06
Glenn, (John) Otto is the drummer. He's very much the shortest, looks about 2 inches shorter than Durst.
Brad said on 26/Sep/06
Most of these 5' 7"/5' 8"ers try to get that 10" added to their bios to appear taller. I wanna know what's under that freaking hat. He has to look like Yoakum or Garth to hide that melon.
Glenn said on 26/Sep/06
Nah,he low cut Adidas on.and Trent is between 5-7 and 5-8.claimed 5-10 in an interveiw.Durst is a legit 5-8,who also claimed 5-10.
sidewinder said on 25/Sep/06
maybe he wears lifts?
aaron north, the touring guitarist for nine inch nails claims that h eis the shortest member of the band, therefore shorter than trent reznor who is 5'6-5'7, and he says that fred durst is, and i quote "Fred Durst is super short, total midge"
Glenn said on 19/Sep/06
Correct Markus.who is otto? or am I saying it wrong? I think that was his name.
Markus said on 19/Sep/06
Think that would be the 2nd guitarist, he's about Durst's height. The drummer looks 1 or 2 inches smaller than Durst.

Take a look at this:

Glenn said on 18/Sep/06
Wish I could help you.only met Durst and I think the 2nd guitarist or was it drummer?.got to check.I think the guy was also 5-8.
Markus said on 17/Sep/06
I'm curious about the rest of Limp Bizkit...
The drummer seems smaller than Durst.
I think Wes Borland (guitarist) is about 6'1". Bassplayer looks a taller than Wes, not sure about the DJ.
Brad said on 15/Aug/06
Why does he always wear a hat?

in the video with halle berry he looks shorter, halle berry is rated a 5.7
height seeker said on 14/Apr/06
i didnt know fred durst was 5'8" i thought he was 5'10" man i gotts stay away from that other site i get heights from, celebstation dot org, they obvously lie lol, anyway ive seen fred standing next to snoop dog in the lmp bizkit break stuff music video and snoop towers over fred and he (snoop) would tower over me because in 5'9"
Glenn said on 2/Apr/06
5-8 it is.
Jay said on 1/Apr/06
Durst is so 5'8", cus i saw a pic of him with eminem and they are same size, eminem is 5'8"
Alex said on 23/Feb/06
I just read the comment on the top of this page with someone saying they were 5'5 and Durst was as tall or them or slightly shorter. Thats crazy, the guy isn't as short as 5'5. 5'8 looks to be the most accurate though.
I think some people like to downgrade celebrities more than they are to feel better about themselves. With the taller celebrities, its that they are jealous they aren't as tall or something and say the person is shorter than they really are.
Glenn said on 23/Jan/06
he is taller than what some people think.he is 5-8.Ive heard reports of 5-6,5-7.he also comes up as 5-10!
J. said on 22/Jan/06
It could be that Glenn is closer to the camera but Durst looks a hair shorter than him. So I'll go with maybe 5'7" and some change. Just under 5'8", in other words. He's always described as being short.
Danimal said on 22/Jan/06
He's over 5'8" next to Glenn.
Katie said on 10/Jan/06
Actually there's a pic of Fred and Eminem...and it seems they're both the same height
KidCanary said on 29/Dec/05
I saw him while i was selling my house in Los Angeles and met him, i am 5 11 and that man was no more than 5'7, even my 5 foot 2 wife said he was short (that's sad)

Why is that sad? It's not like the guy can make himself any taller.

Fred Durst is like 5'6. He just doesn't even come close to 5'8.
dragonsheart27 said on 24/Dec/05
There is no way in hell Durst is 5'8. I'm only 5'6 and I met him backstage when they were just opening for Helmet and Korn. He was standing right in front of me and I even shook his hand and told him they did an awesome show. THis is before they even put their first CD out. Back when they had the Limp Burger King logo. He was as tall or even shorter than me. It's like Glenn Danzig. He looks like he would be huge but he's only about 5'5.
goober said on 15/Dec/05
i saw fred dunst there is no way he is 173 or 174 feet tall
Anonymous said on 17/Oct/05
Yeah, Eminem is 5'8"ish, so Fred has to be about 5'7". But those two beef now so, I'd love to see Em knock this guy out.
CelebHeights Editor said on 22/Aug/05
From gossip newsgroup: "I was at an art gallery party (The Glass Garage on Robertson) he was at, I was at one point standing right beside him and he was almost the exact same height as me maybe one inch taller tops! I am 5'6".
absolution said on 31/Jul/05
after have seen the picture with noel gallagher, i think this guy is 165cm-168cm range.

Hmmmm, not looking too tall next to 5'8" Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher ...
hmm said on 9/Jul/05
Mike said on 26/Apr/05

Fred is rumored to be closer to like 5'6" and this would confirm that since Eminem is like 5'7"-5'8"...
Mr. R said on 1/Apr/05
So there I am at the Hollywood Halloween parade watching all sorts of crazy characters, when I see this white guy walking towards me, a little shorter than average, red baseball cap turned backwards, black tee shirt, with a suitable "don't screw with me sneer", and I think "that's an incredible Fred Durst costume!" As he passes me, I look again, and realize: that's no costume! I look again, and of course, I have to look down, and realize that big bad Freddie is 5'8" on a very good day. More likely, he is maybe a half inch below this!
honsolo said on 23/Feb/05
i work at a hotel and fred durst stayed there for a couple days. I'm barely 5'9", and he was clearly an inch taller. Very suprising too was his weight. Durst looks stocky on tv, but in person looked thin.
