How tall is Gerard Butler

Gerard Butler's Height

6ft 1 ¼ (186.1 cm)

Scottish Actor best known for roles in memorable movies like 300, Olympus Has Fallen, RocknRolla and Law Abiding Citizen. He had this to say about his height, "I'm 6'2'. Wait! Don't quote me on that. I'd better ask my publicist". Bizarrely Gerry got described as high as 6ft 4 when he first

Rob, sorry for asking this but how tall does Violinist David Garrett look with Gerard Butler here?

Garrett is barefooted in this photo.
Editor Rob
Could be 6ft 2

I think he’s 6’1 or 6’1.5 but he has good proportions and posture so he can appear taller at times

@Celebheights 6'1.5
Smith might be more 6'1 1/4 than a 1/2.

There are photos of Gerard standing next to Will Smith, Berta. Gerard looks the same.
berta said on 4/Jan/23
186-187. I dont really know if he is shorter than will smith, arnold and current hugh jackman. Im gonna give him 6´1 1/2
1984here said on 20/Nov/22
I’d say over 6-1 definitely. Maybe 1/4”
Sandy Cowell said on 1/Sep/22
I reckon Gerard looks between 6ft1.5 and 6ft2, so I’m giving him 6ft1.75.

PS: It has nothing to do with my being short!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Aug/22
Looks 6ft2 w/h Eckhart. I think 6ft1½ is certainly up for grabs, what he's at currently is the lowest I'd argue.

Click Here Here he is with the late Darius (last appearance). Granted he's standing in front of him but they're both barefoot. You'd think a big 6ft4 guy like Darius would still look visibly taller than a 6ft1-2 guy. Could be the ground level as well

Wasn't he previously 6'1 1/2"?
QM6'1.5"QM said on 17/Jun/22
The only one word for Rob is pedantic work as always!

Butler never seems under 185cms.
He's the perfect example of true 6'1" guy in the Hollywood and just show you how tall it is.
186cms is better!

6'1.25" for Scottish actor ;)
Blasto said on 27/Apr/22
6’1” flat at most.

Blasto said on 22/Apr/22

Sorry, but zero chance!
Physically 185.5cms at worst in the evening and 6'1.25" is way better chance with around 6'2" in the morning ;)
Blasto said on 22/Apr/22
Weak side of 6’1”, could be 6’ 0.5”.
James G. said on 6/Apr/22
Seems closer to 187cm. Like 6’1 5/8” or so.

Gerard Butler is definitely not under this listing:

Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 8/Mar/22
Gerard was four centimeters taller than 50 Cent, and he didn’t appear shorter than Will Smith in photos. 6’1 1/2” would be a better listing.
Rowan182cm said on 19/Feb/22
Average guess seems about right, he looks about 186-186.5cm (strong 6'1 range)
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 7/Feb/22
Rob, do you think 6'1,5 or 186,5 cm is possible for Gerard?
Editor Rob
6ft 1.25 or 1.5, either of those figures I think I could argue.
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 1/Jan/22
Strong 6'1, i think he could easily measured 6'1 1/4, so he's around 186-187 range, simillar to old morgan freeman if not taller

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Dec/21
Editor Rob: 6ft 2 is what he claims, though Robert Patrick has only claimed 5ft 11 and 6ft

I'm sorry but if Robert Patrick is 6ft4, Arnold's at least 6ft6 🤣🤣
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Nov/21
Edged out by Mark Strong and Rodrigo Santoro (both solid 187cm low) so 6ft2 is a stretch
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Nov/21
Ok Robert Patrick at 6ft3-4 makes my week
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Nov/21
I seem to remember Brosnan edging out Butler in a movie some years back. Haven’t seen it in ages though.

Both guys could be 186.5cm range quite honestly
berta said on 30/Oct/21
i think he is underlisted. He mad NIck nolte look short and he is at worsst 179 today. Also no shorter than current Morgan freeman. i would say almost taller. This guy have always looked like a guy that will measure close to 187. Never over 187 but maybe 3-4 mm under. 186,6 ish. I think Gerard is one of the few that should have a 6´1 3/8 listing, what do you think about that Rob? We all know there is zero cahnse that he is 6´1 flat. 186 is possible but i would bet on that. 186,5 ish guy.
Sus T said on 20/Oct/21
6'2 at least! I met this hunk at a party in 2016. I'm 5'8 and we had a photo together. I was talking to him off & on for a few hours. I know tall men's heights. Gerry is definitely 6'2. He was much taller than me in photos. He was wearing flip flops so I know I'm right. I was wearing sneakers. He's at least 6'2 and very very very muscular. Built well. He has green eyes that are real. I tested his arms & punched him playfully in the belly. Not joking. He's humble & hilarious. Was 5 years ago, but he was very cool. Not snobby at all & super charming & flirtatious. Hope I meet him again. Other celebs at party: Emile Hirsch is probably 5'5. Robert Patrick from Terminator is very tall and blue-eyed and super nice. 6'3 or 6'4. Easy to talk to.
The star of This is Us - last name starts with a v? - is not tall. Maybe 5'10? And a bit of a jerk. Joaquin Phoenix is slightly taller than me. 5'9 or maybe maybe 5'10. Joaquin was very very nice to me. I was a bit star struck by him. Just a regular guy with a bit of social awkwardness. They were all just hanging out at an art opening in West Hollywood. They obviously weren't together. But Robert Patrick and Joaquin Phoenix are close from the Johnny Cash movie. Gerry's gf was there but wouldn't speak to him. 😛😛😛 Hollywood. 😛😛😛

6ft 2 is what he claims, though Robert Patrick has only claimed 5ft 11 and 6ft

Solid tall guy, can easily claim 6'2. I used to think strong 6'1 guys were 6'2 lol
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jul/21
Him and Cooper do look pretty close in photos...I'd give Bradly 6ft0¾, generally looks near 6ft1.

Butler - Strong 6ft1
Cooper - Weak 6ft1
BalticGuy said on 13/Jul/21
Wasn't sure about him but after looking around at a bunch of reference shots I'd say definitely you'd be crazy to put him under 6'0", though I don't know if he'd truly exceed 6'1". Might get close to the 6'1" mark barefoot and 6'2" with decent heels. A legitimate member of the "over 6 foot" club. Unlike quite a lot of men listed at 6'0" or 6'1" who are in fact nowhere near that. I would say absolute max, 6'1", 6'1.25", minimum 6'0.5", so dialed right in somewhere in that range. He could hit his 6'2" claim in shoes.

I'll play devil's advocate and say 6'0.75" because there are a few alleged 6'1"ers who appear to edge him out by a tad.

Eusebiu - 6'1" (185 cm) said on 25/Mar/21
... a small update on my earlier post - I noticed that Bradley Cooper is indeed a lift wearer because in almost all of his movies and photos with other celebrities he wears dress shoes with heels which seem to give almost double the height of normal shoes and I believe it might be around ~4 cm.

A simple exercise for the mind:
- Gerard Butler (listed 186,1 cm) + normal shoes (2,5 cm) = ~188,6 cm
- Bradley Cooper (listed 184,2 cm) + magic shoes (4 cm) = ~188,2 cm
= this is why they look almost the height in their photos together !

Another thing, if Cooper would have worn normal dress shoes then he might have been around 187 cm tall and the difference between him and Butler would have been more noticeable and I guess he though about that before participating to the events where they took pictures together.

I won't repost the same photos which were already posted before but from what I noticed is that fact that Cooper with his heels seems to be the same height as Butler with normal dress shoes but since the heels make the difference, I believe it is justified to say that barefoot, Butler is a taller the Cooper.

So, taking those facts into consideration, I would go with the following:

Bradley Cooper - weak 185 cm, so I go with 184,5 cm
Gerard Butler - 186 cm
Eusebiu - 6'1" (185 cm) said on 24/Mar/21
After analyzing the photos of Gerard Butler together with Bradley Cooper (listed 184,2 cm) I must say that they are very close in height, almost identical.

I sincerily can not understand why Butler is listed almost 2 cm taller then Cooper... so, either Bradley Cooper needs an upgrade, or Gerard Butler needs a downgrade.

To be honest, I see them both in the 185 cm range.

Give the eighth upgrade solid as a rock 186cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Oct/20
He can pull off solid 187cm at times but I would stick with 186cm zone for the time being. 188cm afternoon is hard to buy as is 185cm
Jkiller said on 7/Oct/20
Fairly sure he must be close to 187cm, so 6'1.5 would probably be spot on.
Slim 6'1" said on 2/Oct/20
I’m with u rob, he’s 186-186.5

The current listing is good enough, I’ll edge Gerry
Slim 6'1 said on 27/Sep/20
Robs listing is perfect 186cm is spot on
Editor Rob
I think Butler's range is somewhere around 186, I can't see him in 187-8 zone, but just a 185 guy...I don't think he's that short either.
Slim 6'1" said on 20/Sep/20
He’s in that 186 range

Maybe even 6’1 and 3/8
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Aug/20
Now i don't think Gerard Butler is over 6'1 1/4. I use to have impression of 187cm on him but after check out how Jamie Foxx with thicker footwear stack up to Butler i wonder solid 186cm best fit him not more.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/20
He can look that Slim, I wouldn’t rule it out. A very strong 6ft1 range guy overall
Slim 6'1" said on 14/Aug/20
Strong 6’1” range locked in
Slim 6'1 said on 14/Aug/20
@rob, is 6’1.5” arguable?
Editor Rob
That's the highest I'd argue, I think over 6ft is likely, but it's a matter of just how much.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Jun/20
Rob, don't you think Jamie Foxx wear lift with Gerard? Click Here It's impossible a 5'9 guy can make Gerard look 6'0 1/4 max here if you check on their top of head difference.
Editor Rob
Fox can pull of 5ft 9.5 range at times, like with Butler.
viper said on 21/Apr/20
A 6-1.5 guy like Matthew Fox looks taller than him imo
jano said on 19/Apr/20
He can easily be seen 187, even 188, this listing seems a bit too low, 186.5 at the very least.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Apr/20
Jackman: 187.5cm
Butler: 186.5cm
OriginalAnon said on 15/Mar/20
185cm for Butler and 185cm for Jackman.
TheBat said on 18/Feb/20
Gerard can look 6'1.5" at times. 6'1.25" is totally an acceptable listing.
Importer said on 20/Oct/19
Pics like this can fool people about his stature : Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Oct/19
Berta I think 186.5cm is probably more likely than say 187.5cm (that range belongs to Mark Strong, current Hugh Jackman and prime Jeremy Irons)

Definitely think 6ft1½ is a fair listing for Butler though. I put him in the same neighborhood as Brosnan (peak), Firth (peak) and Hedlund
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Oct/19

berta said on 14/Oct/19
i just dont can see him just 186 flat anymore. he looks to tall beside guys like hugh Jackman morgan Freeman and the 187 guy who is in olympus has fallen.He is probably about same height as jim carrey was at peak. 187 guy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Oct/19
I’m not so sure if he’d edge out Jackman or Freeman even now. Both of those guys I have pegged at 187cm flat currently (Jackman down from a peak of 188-188.5cm and Freeman 189-189.5cm peak). They may still just top Gerry a little bit.
Importer said on 16/Sep/19
@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover Kebble might even be 6’1”. His posture is terrible judging by his scenes in rocknrolla
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Sep/19
I think Brosnan, Butler and Firth are/were between 6ft1-2 range but hard to say who edges out who
Dmeyer said on 27/Aug/19
186 IS tall enaugh to look a hair taller Jackman and similar to Freeman as they stand cool
James G. said on 25/Aug/19
He’s taller than Hugh Jackman. 6’1.75”
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Aug/19
Chris, I can see Kebbell being a weak 6ft1, Butler arguably 6ft1½ and Strong could be a weak 6ft2 (or I dare say even the full 6ft2 you never know). You’re right, there wasn’t much between the three of them. Coincidentally they’ve all been listed 6ft2 in places
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Aug/19
Toby Kebbell is a solid 185cm and still lised 1/2 lower. Gerard i would rule out a 6'1 3/8 candidate or 186.5cm. Between Toby and Gerard is only 1.5cm apart not a full 2cm. Mark Strong is listed fine at 6'1 1/2 but more towards a full 187cm a low. Generally three of them is under listed, two can let alone with the 1/8 more but Toby Kebbell should still put up to 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Aug/19
Rob, who do you think is taller Butler or Mark Strong?

I know you’ve said 6ft1½ is still possible for Gerry but in RockNRolla Mark looked taller
Editor Rob
At times either can seem more 187 than 185-6, generally I would still probably think mark has pulled off looking taller
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jul/19
He can pull off 187-188cm at times
Importer said on 11/Jul/19
@179cm 6'1 1/4 at a low I can believe, 6'1 1/2-3/4 during the day is plausible.
179cm guy said on 7/Jul/19
Rob, I think that Gerard is in need of an upgrade. I think that he can look anywhere from 6'1-1.75.
He had a solid three inches on Aaron Eckhart: ( Click Here )
He didn't seem to be edged out by 6'1.5 Mark Strong: ( Click Here )
He can seem to edge out guys like Hugh Jackman: ( Click Here )
And Will Smith: ( Click Here )

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Apr/19
Brosnan edged out both Butler and Firth
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Apr/19
Rob, it seems your estimation has gone up for Gerry.
Ian555 said on 3/Apr/19
Rob I don’t really get why you and a lot of people think Gerard Butler is shorter than I do. Most of the time he looks closer to 6’ 2” to me than 6’ 1”. Like this photo with Hugh Jackman Click Here. It looks like if one of them is taller, it’s Butler. And also this photo with Will Smith Click Here. Smith isn’t a small guy, probably about 6’ 1 1/2” like you list him, but who looks taller to you? If one of them is taller, it again looks like it’s Butler. Here he is with Morgan Freeman who is probably about 6’ 1 3/4” now, was a very strong 6’ 2” back in the day in my opinion Click Here. If Freeman is 6’ 1 3/4” now, Butler looks like he’s as tall, if not taller than Freeman. I’m telling you, Butler looks like a legit 6’ 2” a lot of the time. One last photo with Pablo Schreiber who is listed at 6’ 4 3/4” on here which is a believable height estimate Click Here. You’ll notice 50 cent is in the photo as well I think 50 cent is a weak 6 footer, and Butler again looks like a legit 6’ 2”.
Editor Rob
Butler has looked 6ft 1.5-1.75 at times, but I think somewhere between 6ft 1-2 is more likelier than flat 6ft 1 or full 6ft 2. I can see why 6ft 1.5 may still be reasonable, because he has looked it...

berta said on 21/May/18
he really doesnt look like the shorter one beside will smith. I perosnally belive butler could be right beetween 186-187 and i wonder if will could be heading to 186? he is in good shape and i cant really believe he have lost any height but he can look 6 foot 1 flat alot recently.

188cm early morning for sure but afternoon? Not as convinced on that.
Caaq said on 15/Dec/17
I think 6 2 is a workable height for him. Specially in olympus has fallen he looks 3 to sometimes 4 inches taller than aaron eckhart who is around 5 11. So i think GB is a comfortable 6 2, looking perhaps 6 3.5 approx with shoes n hair. May even cover the 6 4 mark in a mug shot. So 6 2 should be ok.

at times he can seem that tall, but I feel anywhere in 6ft 1-1.5 range might be more likely than between 6ft 1.5-2 range.

Sincerely I think he is 186 cm max in the morning and 185 in the rest of the day
berta said on 4/May/17
i aggre rob to i think he measures around 186,4 in the afternon yeah rampage 187 listing could be as right as this listing but i think it liks 60procent chanse of 186 and 40 on 186,7
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Apr/17
Gerard is brilliant in 'Law Abiding Citizen'! If all his films are as good, I'm going to have to keep my eyes open!
Yes, I could see from that one movie that he was about 6ft1-2, so I'all settle for 6ft1.5.
I never knew he was Scottish!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Apr/17
186/187cm zone looks better than just 185cm. He can pull off 188cm at times also. Like with Brosnan, I think you could make the same argument for Butler with the 6ft1½ listing
berta said on 13/Apr/17
rob what do you think is biggest xhanse of? 185 ore 187 for him?i cant really see this guy as 185 flat but i can believe he is close to 187 on a good day.although 186 seems fine fore him that is the best estimate
Editor Rob
probably slightly more of 187 than 185, but I still feel in or around 186 is ok for Gerard.
King of the hill 91 said on 25/Mar/17

@Bobby: yep! Those types of pics are always useful when trying to make someone taller or the height they claim but when saying someone is not as tall as they are listed or claim, what you said is quickly pointed out. My the irony lol. On Gerard, kudos to Rob. I agree with the listing
Importer said on 21/Nov/16
That vid with Djokovic, do you ever consider Novak standing on his toes to be seen in the camera?
Josh Jeffords said on 17/Nov/16
Unless he is a lifter this seems low he looks taller than owen and jackman.
Had a bit on peak walker too in a movie he did not star in.
Also seemed quite tall in early brit movies looked 6 2.
S.J.H said on 7/Nov/16
I think gerard butler is 186.5cm just close enough to 6'1.5 and mark strong a solid 187cm guy 6'1.5 edge out 1/4 by near 6'2 tom hiddleston. So hugh jackman is right at 6'1.5 with butler that is why they both look the same height hardly pin down each another
5'6 said on 30/Oct/16
Yeah I believe gerard is 186 cm, I don't think he is taller Than that. He looked approximately a simular height as Terry Crews who is 189 cm when they where fighting in the Movie "Gamer" , just a little bit smaller.
travis said on 19/Oct/16
how he 6'1 he at least 6'2
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 13/Oct/16
Rob, why do you have Rodrigo Santoro listed as 2 CM taller than Gerard Butler? In the photos that I've seen, Gerard Butler is definitely not shorter than him (after looking at them a bit more closely, it even looks as if Gerard has a slight edge over him).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Oct/16
A weak 6ft1 guy could probably claim 6ft2 and get away with it...
KH said on 15/Sep/16
Has a big frame can easily look a bit taller then this but that doesn't mean he is. Love this guy even when he is in bad movies has a lot of Charisma!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/16
This guy isn't too far off his claim. A solid 186cm is fair
Gman56 said on 9/Aug/16
Rob , I see a lot of 185/6cm guys claim 6'2.5 even 6'3 . Is this because they can look 188/9 in decent enough footware or because they actually thing they are near the 6'3 mark
Editor Rob
just boosting themselves to make them seem more impressive in many cases, although we have to be fair and say some people measure in footwear and think absolutely nothing of giving their height in shoes.

What's more impressive though, is telling the truth!
Mark said on 4/Aug/16
Celebheights 1.5 Well, Mark Strong has his legs spread apart while Gerard Butler has his more separate, so Mark Strong would barely edge out Gerard by that. I agree that they look the same height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Aug/16
Strong, Butler, Kebbell and Elba look about the same in that photo

Rob in my opinion 185 is quoted 50%, 186 is quoted 40% and 187 is quoted 10%.

Rob actually he never seems 2 cms taller than an honest 6'0.5" Bradley cooper. I don't see 0,75" between they:

he might be maximum 0,5" taller than him but being generous...i think 6'1" for Butler would be a perfect estimate of his height...:-)
Editor Rob
6ft 1 can be as arguable as a fraction over it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Apr/16
I think ranges A-C
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Mar/16
Rob, which zone is most probable for Gerry?

A) 189cm/187cm
B) 188.5cm/186.5cm
C) 188cm/186cm
D) 187.5cm/185.5cm
E) 187cm/185cm
Editor Rob
At times B, other times D, so that's why I go for C.
Gary said on 22/Mar/16
He only looked a 1/4 inch taller than the mix in wwe Monday night raw this February. I think6ft1.25 is a legit good guess.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Mar/16
The 186/187cm mark is more feasible. He looks like a near 6ft2 guy
Verba said on 13/Mar/16
Ok, after looking at some pictures of him I think he's more like a weak 6'1. I don't see him in the 186cm - 187cm range.

Butler is in the 184,5cm-185,5cm range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Mar/16
I can accept Costner maybe being more of a 6ft1 flat guy (even though at times he could pull off more) but Butler I feel can look in that 186-187cm zone like Brosnan and Firth. I could see a possible tie between the three of them. All have claimed 6ft2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/16
Rob, who do you think would measure tallest out of Brosnan, Butler, Firth and Costner?
Editor Rob
maybe Firth/Brosnan in 80's had a chance of being more 6ft 1.5 than the other 2 guys
Borats chicken said on 29/Feb/16
Rob, A question. When your listing them are you including the footwear or just barefoot? for Bulter he is listed at 186cm with you think he could reach 188 with footwear included?
Editor Rob
always thinking of barefoot height, but not barefoot morning height
berta said on 26/Feb/16
he is a hard guy he can look anywere from 184-188. But this seems riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight :D

6 feet 0.5 max for me in comparison with Djokovic

186cm is also fair. He looks maybe a hair shorter than 187-188cm Mark Strong in RocknRolla

6,1.5 possible?
pjk said on 27/Jan/16
Sorry, meant to say, except if he wears lifts ! It seems to be mostly if not all pictures of him in dress shoes where he is noticeably/ confusingly taller. I noticed this with Bradley cooper also i think. They both seem a little too forward leaning when in those dress shoes = lifts possibly ?

What you think Rob ?
pjk said on 27/Jan/16
Good find Jaume.

gotta agree , i think this is quite a bit out to be honest. I would give him 6' max. Ok we can't see foot ware in the video but even taking that into account he would not be that much shorter at all than Novak Djokovic and he looks a good 2" shorter. Djokovic is about 1cm - 1/2" shorter than 6'1.75" Andy Murrey but even giving him 6'1.5" would make Butler 5'11.5" max from that video. Differences in shoes couldn't make that difference up alone.

Amaze said on 22/Jan/16
Hey rob if Gerard is 186cm how tall is justin on the right? Approx cm guess and feet inch according to you?

From both of those

Gerard is solid tall 186cm.. makes justin look so short small
Editor Rob
he could look at most 5ft 8, but a chance of anywhere in 5ft 7-8 range
John said on 18/Jan/16
@Rampage Clover
I've come to notice that you love to upgrade every celebrities heights. Don't get me wrong, I know not all heights in this site are exactly accurate, but most are. A lot of times, you upgrade at least a quarter or half inch taller than what Rob lists as.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jan/16
6ft1½ wouldn't be a bad listing either. He looks at least 186-187cm in pretty much anything and sometimes can pull off the 188cm look.
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 2/Dec/15
@BT I agree. He's over 6'1" for sure (like 6'1 1/2").
BT said on 26/Nov/15
I'm betting Novak was wearing big trainers and Gerry was wearing flats or sandals, or socks for that matter. There's no way he's only 6ft.
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 25/Sep/15
@Gangster What shoes is Novak wearing in that video???
Pete said on 20/Sep/15
Given the video, wherein he's saying "This is Sparta !" alongside Djokovic (because Djokovic was reflecting on the mass invasion of Serbia by Africans before his tennis final), Butler looks around 182cm.
boiannus said on 19/Sep/15
@Jaume My thaughts exectly after this video! He is a lot shorter than Djokovic, at least 4-5 cm. If there is no hole in which Gerard stands, my guess is that he is no more than 182-183 at best.
Andrea said on 17/Sep/15
Yeah, he looks noticeably shorter than Novak there... And Novak himself isn't over 186-187! He must have forgotten the lifts at home :)
Here, you can see him looking near Novak's height: Click Here (this time, he borrowed a pair of lits from Robert Downey Jr :) )

He really does look 6ft1½(187cm) w/h Cumberbatch, if not a weak 6ft2.
191-193 said on 23/Aug/15
Standing next to someone is not a reliable way to estimate height, at least not from my experience. You need an outside perspective. Gerard is certainly not taller than 186 cm.
Guy said on 19/Aug/15
Stood right next to the dude the other night. Unless he was wearing huge boots or something (I didn't see), he is easily 6'2. Looked more like 6'3.
allaboutheight said on 19/Aug/15
Rob, next to Beckham he's just slightly taller, and I'm not referring to photos with camera advantage but those where they are both next to each other staring at the camera. You've got Beckham listed as 5ft11. Butler seems more of a 6ft rather than 6ft1 or 6ft2 guy.
Boo said on 2/Aug/15
Redux: I bought a s=6'2" mannequin...Ehy? I bid on and won his polo dhirt from rhe wardrobe dept. for the costu dressed the dummy. and everything fit perfectly; is the same height as the dummy@
AlexMahone said on 31/Jul/15
Please! People come with this very bad picture from Gibson and Butler. Gibson is closer to the camera and the ground is not the same because the ground is a little bit plunge on Butler's site.

So, yes too many downgraders and height obsessed guy is here....
NBAer said on 30/Jul/15
He generally looks 6-6'1 to me in most of his movies,also didn't look much taller than 5'10 Michael Hall(aka Dexter) in Gamer,maybe 2 inches.Id give him 6'0.5(184cm)flat and around 6'2 in solid boots.I mean he looks only a mere inch taller next to a 5'11 range bloke like Raoul Bova,so weak 6'1 is closer than strong 6'1,imo.
hijopotamus said on 11/Jul/15
Hal, yes! What's wrong with thinking he is shorter? Or maybe Mel Gibson is taller, you are right!
hal said on 10/Jul/15

Gerard is no shorter than 185cm. I think 186 is a fair listing.
hijopotamus said on 1/Jul/15
After watching the pic with Mel Gibson I seriously give Butler a 6' max. This guy has tricked everyone for years.
Mel was wearing freaking sandals!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jun/15
If Cumberbatch is 182-183cm range then Butler is near 187cm for sure.
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 16/Jun/15
Gerard Butler looks 4-5 CM taller than Benedict Cumberbatch in the photos of the two together, who Rob has met and listed as 5'11.75".

Andrea said on 21/Feb/15
Both Gerard and Hugh are not 6'2ers... With that guy, Gerard can look 6'1 range, so for sure he can pull off looking 6'1 with people but he just doesn't look it with Raoul Bova! I'm wondering if Bova would look so tall next to Hugh-"not 6'2"-Jackman too...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Feb/15
Rob, maybe 187cm is possible if he's able to look similar to legit 6ft2 guys like Jackman and that NFL player?
Editor Rob
there are also photos of gerard with other nfl player Here and Owens is near 6ft 3, so I think from that I still would say 186.

He looks barely shorter than that guy, Rob. I'm wondering if he wears lifts since with Raoul Bova he doesn't look much over 6'... How do you explain that? It's not only one picture but more pictures where he looks a bit taller than him. And don't tell me Raoul is taller than 5'11.25 because he can look 5'11 flat a lot...
Editor Rob
the guy might be 6ft 2, maybe he got an earlier in day measurement for nfl, but Butler I think at times just drops more height than is apparent in the photo. I would stick with him being in the 186 range.

I argue a 6ft0¾ for Cooper since he can pull off 6ft1+ in a lot of pictures.
186-187cm for Butler as stated by Mike is correct.

Anywhere between 6' and 6'1 is possible... 6'1.25 could be his morning height!

Danny said on 16/Sep/14
Looks anywhere from 5'11 to 6'2, as strange as that sounds. In my opinion, it all depends on the type of footwear. 5'11 guys can pull off a 6'1 look easily with the right shoes. Rob, would you be able to start a page on Chris Zylka?
Andrea said on 16/Sep/14
6'0.75 is the most i'd argue... All these guys claiming 6'1-6'2 range for him should really see him with Raoul Bova, who really is no more than 180-181!

Rob, not every celebrity lies about their height. This can be proven by looking at the pics of Butler next to Jackman, and Butler next to Stallone. He's at least 6'1.5" but my honest guess would be anywhere from 6'1.5"- 6'2.5".
Editor Rob
I am well aware of this, as is seen in a big chunk of the listings which are what the celebrity has said.
Andrea said on 5/Apr/14
I still can't explain why he looks so similar to Raoul Bova, who could even not be 181! But he generally looks around 6'1 with other guys, don't rule out 184 either for him...

I was on set with him for Chasing Mavericks, I'm 6' and he seemed a good 2-3 inches taller than me. So 6' 2-3" would be about right.

Do you think Mark Strong might be the full 6ft2 then, Rob?

He edged out Butler by a couple of centimetres in RocknRolla.
