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 broke into movies.

With lifts he can even pull off 190cm, however barefoot he is 186cm range.
Importer said on 13/May/19
Morning :187.5 cm
Afternoon : 186.5 cm
Evening : 185.5 cm
Strong 6'1 guy. I'll guess 6ft 1inch 1/4

Brosnan edged out both Butler and Firth

Rob, it seems your estimation has gone up for Gerry.
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”.
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...

GRIT said on 6/Mar/19
he is either a strong 6ft1 or a weak 6ft1.5
said on 31/Dec/18
He looks the full 6’2” with 50 Cent:
50 is leaning, with Gerard having a slight footwear advantage though.
TheBat said on 7/Nov/18
More like around 6'1.5" to me.

Tall guy at 6'1. No more. But is always in lifts. On screen and in person.

Garard Butler doesn't look over 6'0 with 5'9 Jamie Foxx.
Ian555 said on 27/Jun/18
Definitely a 6’2 guy. Rob could you update this to 6’2? He’s looks like a big dude to me. Taller than Hugh Jackman and Morgan Freeman
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.

Rob, what do you think about it?
They are pretty close in height.

Rob, what do you think this guy's weight was in the 'Den of thieves' movie? He looked massive! (Also on a side note, I think he's 187cm handily)
Over 200 pounds.

Id say 6'1.5 is a better fit

I saw Timeline (absolute rubbish) and Butler did look very close to Paul Walker.

i think butler could be one of the few who looks 6 foot 1 3/8. what about that rob? never really looks under 186 and dont quite look 6 foot 1 1/2
Junior Hernandez said on 8/Feb/18
6'1 3/8 close to 6'1 1/2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/18
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.

Looks at least 1,5 inches taller than legit 6' 50cent

He has 5’10.5” Aaron Eckhart by at least 3 inches here: Click Here
A 6’1.5” upgrade is necessary.
I knew from the start butler was underlisted a tad bit.

183 CM is injustice. This guy dwarfed Jennifer Aniston.

Must be a strong 6'1.5" guy in le morning dipping into 6'1.25" before bed.
pjk said on 25/Sep/17
Butler and Cooper both 6 ft flat to me and nothing more. I am convinced both wear lifts. Too much difference in heights otherwise.
Hijopotamus said on 7/Sep/17
said on 1/Sep/17
Rob, is 6'1.5" arguable?
Editor Rob: 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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Aug/17
186cm evening is more than fair. I don't see him as 6ft1 flat.

Daniel Henney would look the same height as Gerard Butler.
George Smith said on 3/Jul/17
186cm seems right. In his movie timeline butler and paul walker looked about same height but butler was in boots which k gave him 3cm and walker was in converse whick gave him 1cm so butler 186cm walker 188cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/17
No less than 188cm out of bed and probably a bit over (like 188.4cm)
Slim 181 cm said on 6/Jun/17
187 out of bed
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/17
I think he's a genuine 186cm guy at his lowest just not always the best posture. At times I can see why he might appear shorter. He's looked 188cm at times also
Phil said on 17/May/17
6 foot 1. i don't think he is over 6 foot 1.
Gian92 said on 9/May/17
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
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
186cm to 187cm flat early morning most

Canson said on 23/Nov/16
@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?
BOBBYH3342 said on 21/Nov/16
It really surprises me that people would use outdoor pics on uneven ground as a reference pic? Well once again rob has it right good listing for gerard
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
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

He appears to be the same as Mark Strong:

Yeah, A is definitely possible. He looks that mark by George Clooney.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jun/16
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 24/May/16
Either B or C.
Agreed. He usually looks in that zone when he stands tall. Can even appear more like A at times.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 24/May/16
Either B or C.
Judd said on 23/May/16
Rob in my opinion 185 is quoted 50%, 186 is quoted 40% and 187 is quoted 10%.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/May/16
Out of bed: 188-189cm
Before bed: 186-187cm
said on 20/May/16
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
said on 29/Mar/16
Rob, which zone is most probable for Gerry?
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
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
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
grizz said on 24/Feb/16
@Jame, what are you talking about? He looked massive in every single movie since 300!
Jame said on 13/Feb/16
I think his frame is too skinny for 6 ft 1 inc guy
gian92 said on 9/Feb/16
6 feet 0.5 max for me in comparison with Djokovic
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Feb/16
186cm is also fair. He looks maybe a hair shorter than 187-188cm Mark Strong in RocknRolla
fox said on 6/Feb/16
Seen a picture with Antonio Banderas. The daily mail claims 6"2, no way.
Grant said on 5/Feb/16
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.
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
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.
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 :) )
said on 15/Sep/15
This guy looks 2 inches sorter than 1'88 Novac Djocovic. So he must be less than 183cm.

Rob, what do you think about this clip? Djokoci seems to be taller than Butler. Whats your opinion?
[Editor Rob: he looks under 6ft 1 in the clip!]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/15
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".

He actually looks a decent 6ft2 with that 6ft3½ guy.

Jackman is a solid 6ft2 guy.
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...
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.]
said on 11/Feb/15
Could someone please explain this? Both heels look very similar.
said on 5/Feb/15
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.]
said on 3/Feb/15
He did hold up well against this chap:
Who is supposed to be a fraction over 6ft 2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jan/15
6ft1-2 range is perfect. He might even be 187cm.
Similar to Brosnan in Butterfly On A Wheel and also Mark Strong in RocknRolla

It's hard for me believe Butler is under 6'0.75"...6'1" sounds good to me!

Just a joke what the hell guys? He looks 4 cm over Jason sudeikis listed 1.84cm
Andrea said on 9/Jan/15
O yeah and Raoul Bova is over 6'...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/15
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.
Judd said on 4/Jan/15
I think he's something like 6'0.75-6'1"...he's an hair taller than Bradley Cooper (6'0.5").
Mike said on 7/Dec/14
186-187 is his range. 6ft max claims are bull!

He is easily 6'1+; I would actually say 6'2", having stood next to him, and I am 5'10".
Jay 184cm said on 19/Sep/14
I would have had this guy as a solid 6'2" but after seeing the photos of him with Raoul Bova and the photos with Mel Gibson, I'm really not sure. He could easily be 181cm it seems.
Andrea said on 19/Sep/14
Anywhere between 6' and 6'1 is possible... 6'1.25 could be his morning height!
184.9 on a bad day said on 18/Sep/14
Gerard Looks the same as Rodrigo Santoro both with sandals. I can't see this under 185( with good posture).he also edge out hugh jackman( I don't know how).
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!
Judd said on 16/Sep/14
i think he' 6'1"
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 6/Sep/14
Well he did appear 1.86m-1.87m in the film 'Olympus has Fallen'. Had a few inches in height over Aaron Eckhart.

What you saying is unfair. Look this video, he have long arms, long legs and long torso. Looks 186-187 with ellen Click Here
said on 14/Jul/14
I would say 187cm
Next to Sami Khedira who is listed as 189cm
terra carier said on 13/Jul/14
Butler is bang on the 187 CM mark, period.
afkam99 said on 3/Jul/14
his frame is too small for 6'1-6'2 guy
said on 28/Apr/14
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...
Ace said on 31/Mar/14
looked like a solid 6'2" in 300
Gilipollas said on 23/Mar/14
Amazing the pics with Mel Gibson. After that I give Gerry a 5'11" max

same height as brosnan in shattered 2007.
I watched the trailer for shattered. At the end, they are face to face.
To me, Brosnan edges out Butler by an inch...

PT said on 24/Jan/14
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.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jan/14
Do you think Mark Strong might be the full 6ft2 then, Rob?
He edged out Butler by a couple of centimetres in RocknRolla.
said on 8/Jan/14
Rob, I might've asked this ages ago but would you say it's safe to assume that he'd be 6ft2 early morning?
[Editor Rob: I think that's a pretty reasonable assumption.]
jordydecke said on 7/Jan/14
Looks a bit shorter in "Olympus has fallen", more like a 5'11.75 or 6'0 guy. Looks a lot thinner in this film too and I think it suits him more.
berta said on 2/Jan/14
the same height as bradley cooper when cooper has mutch more heels. 186 sounds right
Sam said on 18/Dec/13
Being nose-to-nose with Bradley Cooper proved Butler's 6'2" claims are erroneous. Butler is a guy who can seem bigger on screen than he does in photos. In Rock-n-Rolla, he's a bit shorter than Mark Strong and (more so) Idris Elba.
johnmcc said on 17/Dec/13
Saw a photo of him with my 6'2 Uncle in Paisley and he looked an inch smaller so maybe 185cm evening but this is also good.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/13
The current 186cm listing is spot on. Around the same as Brosnan
said on 22/Nov/13
For me he's 181 cm MAX
cole said on 19/Nov/13
Eckhart seems more like a 178 cm guy to me the more I see him (think Rob also mentioned he could look it next to Yvonne Strahovski). Gerard is closer to the camera in that shot Arch Stanton posted as well. I'd go with 185-186 cm range for Butler, and 178-179 cm for Eckhart.

what do u guys think? with rg3.
I remember tons of analysts/scouts who had seen him in person being surprised at the NFL combine that RG3 measured as high as 6'2 3/8". It was probably a first thing in the morning measurement. Butler appears to be at most .5" shorter in that photo.
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 4/Nov/13
He looks 6'2 with Eckhart.
Lo sgozzatore said on 3/Nov/13
Yeah, Arch he easily looks around 6'1 with Aaron but remember those pictures with Raoul Bova, who is around 180-181. The same Bova actually struggled to look 5'11 with the footballer Luca Toni, who claimed 193 in an interview. Butler really doesnt look over 183-184 with him, they actually look about the same (Bova has some footwear advantage) but i'm givin him the benefit of doubt. Maybe he's 184?
said on 30/Oct/13
All the people saying he's max 6 ft check out Click Here
with 5'10.75" listed Aaron Eckhart!!
screwylouie77 said on 26/Oct/13
There's a photo of him with Adrien Brody on the base and it looks like GB has a couple/few inches on AB, certainly more than 1.25" between them (you have Brody at 6'0" and Butler at 6'1.25"). So one of these heights is off by a little.
afka said on 4/Oct/13
I changed the my quastion.he is probably 183-184 cm.he look tall and big

He is min 6'1.max 6'2 but ı think he is 187 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/13
Looks 186-187cm with good posture.
Mark Strong could be 188cm though.
Balrog said on 5/Sep/13
I think 183-185 is a better range, I thought he was shorter but next to Eckhart he does looks close to 6'1" but can't see him that tall when he is so close in height with Bradley Cooper (maybe lifts on Bradley) and next to Bouva he's no way near to 6'1".
said on 27/Aug/13
Rob next to Mark Strong he looks about 6'1'5" range. Is 187 cm possible for him?
[Editor Rob: I think 186 is still a good shout for him...]
said on 24/Aug/13
Here are a couple of pics with Gerard and West Indian Cricketer Chris Gayle... Now Gayle is officially billed at 188cm (6'2"). Looking at these pics makes me doubt even a sincere 6'0.5" billing for Gerard. Have a peek...
(Can a supposed 6'1" man look like that next to a 6"2" man?)
I think Gerard Butler is a strong 5'11.75" - 6' max!...
Balrog said on 20/Aug/13
He can't be this tall. Look at him with solid 5'9" Hardy, with Bouva and this guy was barely taller (if that) than Bradley Cooper. He's under 6'1". Solid 184cm I think.
cole said on 31/Jul/13
Still think 6'1 is good for him.
MarcusTheSwede said on 14/Jul/13
Im in this moment looking at a Movie Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston.
There is no way in h Gerard Butler is taller then 184 185cm maximum for him.

Rob, do you still think Butler is 186cm?
[Editor Rob: standing tall I think he can look it]

im from germany and lanz is officially 184cm but could be a little under that like 181-182cm and butler looked a bit taller than him so 185cm is still realistic for him

Consistently looks 6'0" to 6'1". Tall, but not very tall.

I don't see over 185 cm for Gerard, even 184 cm I could buy.

Here's a video of Edbassmaster with Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart. Edbassmaster has a video with Chris Daughtry where they stand right next to each other and they both look the exact same height. Daughtry's listed at 5'8", which is what I've always thought Edbassmaster looked. Click Here
HeightMan said on 8/Jun/13
I am seeing him on German TV right now. Officially the host of the show (Markus Lanz) is 1.81m, Butler looks a little bit taller but no way 1.88m.
Balrog said on 31/May/13
Next to Eckhart he does appear close to 6'1''.
me said on 24/May/13
Gerry & his friend, and fellow Scotsman, Craig Ferguson appear together often, and Craig is always noticeably taller. On this site, you bill Craig as 6'1.5"...
If you're right about Craig, Gerry is no more than 6'0.
penguinboy25 said on 19/May/13
This must be the out of bed measurement. I have him around 184-185 IMO.
jflynn said on 9/May/13
Have met the man three times- 6'2 for sure. Very tall.
kevin said on 26/Apr/13
friend of mine whose 190cm met him said he was clearly taller than him and that hes about 6ft1in, so 185-186 fit him good.
Linebacker28 said on 20/Apr/13
He's rangy. Can look anything from a flat 6' to a near 6'2". I'd put the money on 185cm, personally. Looked that against Walker in Timeline, and for the most part in RocknRolla.
Dmeyer said on 16/Apr/13

Rob, consider a downgrade? These pictures with Mel Gibson are quite revealing, I think 6ft 0.75in (184 cm) is more his range.

James said on 22/Feb/13
6'0.75 before bed
said on 22/Feb/13
I think anything below 6'.5" is unfair, since in this video he appears to have at least an inch over Craig Ferguson. I don't think he could boost himself from 5'11", as some are claiming his height might be, to over 6'2" to loom over Craig without wearing some ridiculous looking shoes. Click Here
Josh said on 14/Feb/13
6'0.5 the most

182-184 is more his range.
Silent d said on 7/Feb/13
Lo sgozzatore said on 5/Feb/13
I said it Silent d :)
The 6'2 claim is outrageous... He looks about the same with Raoul Bova, let's say a bit taller just because he has shoe disadvantage... And Bova did neither look 5'11 with footballer Luca Toni, who has claimed 193! No way this guy is 6'1.25 but again he's more "important" and famous than other stars on here, so he probably deserves at least one inch as a gift!
Silent d said on 4/Feb/13
That photo with mel gibson makes him look 180cm and mel is wearing sandals. No lifts. He is also wearing thin trainers. This is shocking. Maybe gerard butler is not that tall after all. I am saying he's 6 foot flat now after those shocking mel gibson photos.
kevin said on 4/Feb/13
if cooper is 183-184cm than i would guess butler as 184-185cm cause to me he does look a bit taller.
said on 3/Feb/13Click Here
Rob, you mentioned 184 he can look at lowest. How tall do you think he looks here next to Mel Gibson. Surprises me, I only see 6' tops here.
[Editor Rob: he can vary in those sets of photos from 2 to 4 inches from what I saw]
Stoo said on 3/Feb/13
Pictures of him with Mel Gibson both wearing flat footwear....if Gibson is 5"9 Butler is only 5"10
Lo sgozzatore said on 2/Feb/13
Silent, trust me he's not "at least 6'1"... Have you seen the pics with Raoul Bova or even with Bradley Cooper, who's just a 6' range guy? I'd say he's 6' range too...
Arch Stanton said on 1/Feb/13
From what I've seen he seems around 6'1".
Arch Stanton said on 1/Feb/13
He looks close in height to 6'2" Chris Cornell Jake, he can look 6'1.5".
Silent d said on 1/Feb/13
Suspicious footwear. I know gerard butler is at least 6 foot 1 and bradley is a known lift wearer. 186cm.
said on 15/Jan/13
Rob, Butler and Bradley Cooper seem to be around the same height. The only ones where Butler looks taller is where he is closer to the camera or standing straighter. In some of the shots Cooper even seems to have a hair over Butler. I think Butler is under 6'1". Downgrade time yet?
said on 10/Jan/13
With 5'11 max Ralph Fiennes: Click Here
With 5'9.5 McGregor, 5'8 DeNiro and 6ft Adrien Brody: Click Here
With 5'11.25 Raoul Bova: Click Here
Actually I'm doubting he's even 6'1 now. I've seen him a lot lately and sometimes he even seems as low as 6ft flat. Sure about the 6'1.25 Rob?
[Editor Rob: of course he can look a range, 184-186 is what I'd say he generally can look.]
lulo said on 6/Jan/13
Always thought he was like 6'3'' I think I read that somewhere, suprised when I now realise he's around 6'1''

Butler was same height that Bradley Cooper. Can't see him over 6'1''
Mark E Smith said on 16/Dec/12
Sorry third reason, he is clearly shorter than Jonathan Ross (who may have been 6 1 when younger but at 50 and overweight must have lost height - likely height now say 6).
Also lots of sightings in Glasgow have Gerard him as average - tall rather than tall.
Guess he is 5'11 - 5 11.5.
6'1.5 is outlandish. Also behave over the physique, in Sparta 300 it's mostly CG.
Mark E Smith said on 15/Dec/12
Come on, this site is meant to cut through the fiction. 6ft 1.25in is nonsense for Butler. Three reasons:
lots of Pics with Henrik Larson and Butler at best 2 inches taller. Larson is 5ft 9in tops. Met H in Glasgow, very nice guy but I was surprised how short he was.
Also recall a pic of Butler in petrol filling station standing beside a range rover sport (height 5ft 11.5) and Butler was (you guessed it)standing upright shorter than the roof.
Conti said on 4/Dec/12
I would definitely say 5'11 barefoot,and in shoes 6'1.
James said on 17/Nov/12
6'4 is bizzare for Gerald. He's still tall though at 185cm.
said on 12/Nov/12
Rob, i dont know if you're aware but there some photos out there of Butler with Lena Headley, that you met! Well, he is standing pretty straight, she has bad posture and she's wearing slippers (so he also has footwear advantage)... He really doesnt look more than a good 6' next to her (with all these advantages). Maybe it is worth to downgrade him to 6'1 (even if he likely is shorter than that, he's also very similar to Cooper who's nothing over 6'0.25-6'.5)
[Editor Rob: a flat 6ft 1 might be ok]
said on 4/Nov/12
Rob, you want pics? He looks similar to bova who isnt over 181 and isnt taller than cooper, who could easily be 6'!
[Editor Rob: butler for sure can sometimes only look 6 foot range, but I think that's more standing loose. He has less footwear with bova, at least give him that half inch back ;)]
Lo sgozzatore said on 3/Nov/12
I looked more about Bova and he really doesnt look over 180-181 (see the recent pics with Gassman). Butler looks very similar to Bova... There are also some pics of Butler with Bradley Cooper. Butler really doesnt look taller than Cooper, in many pics he even looks shorter. Now we know that Cooper could be 6', so Butler maybe needs a downgrade, Rob?
balrog said on 18/Oct/12
He's 6'0.5'' because he is same height that Bradley Cooper.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 26/Aug/12
Rob, i remember a photo on the pitch (so they had same footwear) of Bova and Luca Toni, who claimed to be 193 (and he looks all of it)... Toni looked at least 5-5.5 inches taller (if im not wrong i showed you that pic and you confirmed that)... I dont think he looks 6', as you say! Anyway, i'll try to see more stuff about him ;)
said on 25/Aug/12
Rob, could u please explain how he looks no taller than raoul nova? There are many pics on the net and they look similar, sometimes butler looks even shorter!
