Textbook 5'10-177.8, the quarter inch isn't necessary, I doubt he'd be eye to eye with Sizemore and Ritchie.
Slim 182 cm said on 11/Aug/17
Overall, it's a great listing, as he's either 178 or 179, I'm not sure what he looks more though...
Slim 182 cm said on 17/Jul/17
I reckon in memento, he slipped 2 cm lifts in his shoes. As for la confidential, I don't know.
Slim 181 cm said on 16/Jul/17
He even admitted 178 himself unlike @matt179 who rounds his 178.5 to 179.
Slim 181 cm said on 16/Jul/17
I stand corrected, he's a flat 5'10, I saw him recently and I'm 1 and piece inches taller than him. I Was wearing 2 cm shoes while he was wearing runners.
Slim 181 cm said on 12/Jul/17
5'10.5, as he matched up to Russel Crowe in L.A. Confidential".
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Jan/17
Guy looks a bit like a college lecturer in this picture!
I do remember him from 'Neighbours', but I didn't realise it was the same, eh,Guy starring in these films for quite some time, I'm afraid to say! It might have something to do with the high standard of their voice coaches, as accents can really throw me sometimes!
If I had to have guessed Guy's height, I would have said "5ft11 at least!"
He does have a good posture, and I did get the impression he was taller. I'll take a better look next time I see him in 'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark'; I can compare him to Katie Holmes!

My morning height is 179.7 and evening is 177.7 do you think he would be visibly taller than me

Editor Rob: Pedro, it might be dependent on your hairstyle, if flat then he'll probably seem more noticeably taller than if you had a combed back or funky style.

King of the hill 91 said on 3/Nov/16
178 to 179 no more no less
josh jeffords said on 11/Oct/16
Damn fine actor can often look 5 11 hes pretty lanky.
He looked taller then Crowe and he was supposed to be huge..
S.J.H said on 3/Oct/16
5'10 and a good modesty
Johnny said on 21/Jun/16
@Rob did he wear lifts in Memento?? Because he looked taller than the 5'10" mark beside Carrie Anne Moss and Joe Pantoliano.
Editor Rob: I don't know if he did...but he is probably a good example of an honest 178cm range man.
Dmeyer said on 16/May/16
The kind of Guy who dosnt dip under 178cm And likely 178,3cm
Johno said on 20/Feb/16
His original estimate of 5'10 might be better l.

he is as tall as me

solid 180 out of bed
solid 178 going to sleep

he really looked it in memento.
Dan said on 12/Oct/15
How much do you think Guy Pearce weighs? Wikipedia says 82 kg.
[Editor Rob:
I think if you found a quote by Guy giving his weight, it is fine putting a value out there and referencing it, but guessing weights is tough. I saw a few weeks ago you can see someone had 80kg, now it's 82kg...

he probably varies from 78-84 over the last few years. Look at him in Lockout, he has a good physique there.
Heylo said on 14/Sep/15
Great actor, arguable one of the most underrated.
He has that kind of height where he never looks either short nor tall, never really thought about his height when I watch his movies.
Mat 5'10 said on 13/Sep/15
Rob, do you think he drops under 178 at his lowest?
[Editor Rob: I feel he's an honest 178cm, maybe measured around that mark in the afternoon.]
Anton said on 2/Sep/15
He claims to be 5' 10" so why do you list him at 5' 10.25"?

To me he looks an honest 5' 10".
[Editor Rob: he gave 178cm in the Aussie article many years ago, and generally looks that range, a strong 5ft 10.]
Sam said on 18/May/15
Rob, would you add to his credits?: The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert,, The Proposition, The Hurt Locker, Animal Kingdom, The King's Speech, Iron Man 3 and The Rover.
He's one of the better actors around, very versatile.
Lonestar said on 16/Aug/14
Rob, don't you think Guy was more closer to 5"ll than 5"10?
[Editor Rob: I believe he's an honest 178cm as he claimed.]
TJE said on 21/Jul/14
Yea, this is spot on. Saw Lawless the other day. Couldn't compare him to other actors, but he definitely looked at least 5'10, maybe a little bit over, but nowhere near 5'11. 5'10.5 would still be a stretch.
Michael said on 2/Jul/14
I thought he was taller to be honest. He looked quite tall in The Rover (great film). I'd almost go for 179-180. I think Pattinson could be a legit 184 - 185.
cole said on 29/Jun/14
Pearce vs Pattinson is in my opinion a typical 5ft 10 vs 6ft situation (or 5ft 10.25 vs 6ft 0.25 as is listed, for that matter). Don't know what pictures you guys have seen to think they are the same height - Pattinson when standing tall looks easily 1.75-2in taller than Pearce for sure. I used to think of Pattinson as a 181 cm guy, 182 at best, but seeing him with Pearce, who for the most part looks like a legit and honest 178 cm guy, I think Pattinson is pretty much 183 cm range - 6'0.25 is very arguable.

He looked about the same height as robert pattinson in the rover previews and when they were promoting it. 178cm.
Sam said on 19/Jun/14
Not a huge difference with Robert Pattinson, I'd guess the latter looks 4-5 cm taller in photos from the premiere of The Rover.
Hypado said on 17/Jun/14
Guy is 178 or 179 cm

great actor
ray1989 said on 2/Apr/14
He seemed 5'11" in memento,but usully seems 5'10" so might be 179 cm, or he wakes up 180 cm and ended with 178 no mather cause he is a great actor
cole said on 21/Feb/14
He can look between 178 and 179 cm. 5'10.25 is spot on.
Sam said on 21/Feb/14
He also seemed to be about 5'11" next to Colin Firth. More likely Firth is a weak 6'1" guy who can seem taller due to good posture, whereas Pearce is around 178-179 cm. Stop crushing on Pearce, Arch :=)

lelman said on 6/Feb/14
@Arch I agree, blonde spikes really suited him.

Looks a strong 5'10" with Nolan. I really struggle to see him below 5'10".
Realist said on 5/Feb/14
5'9.5 176-177 cm. This guy rocks, i love that height range too, its ideal for guys because women are mostly between 5'3 and 5'7.He would have made a much better Batman than Affleck too.
Arch Stanton said on 2/Feb/14
He looks 5'11" in Memento. He looked ridiculously good in that film.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/14
@Rampage, I dunno, in some scenes Pearce looked to have the edge on Crowe and in others Crowe looked 1-2 inches taller. I think they were pretty similar but I think Crowe was likely a bit taller.
truth said on 25/Dec/13
I think he could be 177cm and Crowe is 179cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Nov/13
He made Russell Crowe look a solid 6ft in L.A. confidential.
Seriously, there was about 2in there.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Oct/13
Looks more 177cm in The Hurt Locker.
caaq said on 9/Sep/13
like I said in another page of this site, height depends on how its measured. How straight the guy stands, if feet are together or apart, if a scale was used (which invariably gives reduced results as it gets tilted downwards from the head to the wall). So a so called solid 5-10, could honestly be 5-11. I feel, that for all practical purposes, wearing normal shoes and including a bit of hair he looked at least 6-0.5inches in memento, meaning u could call him a casual 5-10.5 to 5-11 with moderate comfort.
Dmeyer said on 8/Sep/13
Many people who get measured 3-4mm over a mark Will juSt round down
[Editor Rob: you could be 178.3cm...especially in countries that are using cm, and yeah, just round down. If 178.5 though, I guess you could go either way!]
Arch Stanton said on 25/Jul/13
I saw him in Two Brothers and at times he could look 5'9" range. all I know is that he definitely not a tall guy and is average, but obviously way above average looking...
jimbo said on 14/May/13
He was taller then GP with heels in iron man 3, or maybe just excatly the same height. So this Estimate is probably spot on.
Matthew said on 29/Apr/13
Whenever I saw him in 'Iron Man 3' standing next to either Gwyneth Paltrow or Robert Downey, Jr., he looked about the same height as the former who is 5'9", and a little taller than the latter who is 5'8" 1/2. He must be at least 5'9".
dondariabl; said on 18/Mar/13
I think he is 175 cm
Dmeyer said on 7/Mar/13
Rob do you think hé got measured 178.5cm since 5'10.25 is 178.4cm and round to 178cm or do you just mean hé dosnt dip under 178cm
[Editor Rob: I'm sure he got measured 178 range....but could be a few mm above, so he's in that 5ft 10-10.5 zone]
bodwaya said on 3/Nov/12
he was 1 inch taller then 5 foot 9 sandler. in bed time stories.He even had an inch on 5 foot 9 spacey
Dmeyer said on 11/Oct/12
Many guys measures 3-4mm over a Mark and just claim like this Guy might be 178.3-4cm like me 181.2-181.4cm
Sam said on 29/Dec/11
I agree that Pearce may be a rare actor honest about his height, although with a thin frame and good posture, he can look above his self-stated height
LAN Jiao said on 3/Nov/11
yes. he really could' hide his 5'10 frame he claim and looks it alot , his proportion and frame even look taller than "6-0" leo dicaprio. in the time machine i thought he was 5'11.5 untill i shocked he only claim 178cm, such an honest guy..
LAN Jiao said on 24/Oct/11
off the crap Guy is an honest 5'10. in 2000 ravenous guy had 5 big inch under 6'4 Jeffrey Jones. so under 5'10 you guys think?
james cromwell is a weak 8" taller than Guy and listed 6'5.5 which is fair.
so 178cm be it!
LAN Jiao said on 28/Sep/11
5'9? also only 5'7..? noo waay..haha.. im 196cm i met Guy and he looks 5'2 and he told me kenny g sells his saxophone to him and told Guy he was listed 5'2 why steal his "shorty guy crown" away and while Guy say james cromwell was struggling hit 5'10 in L.A.Confidential.. lastly Guy say katie holmes afraid of the dark while shes weak 5'1 admit tom cruise stand no taller than 4'1 danny devito. LOL..
marcoz said on 17/Aug/11
5'10??? no chance, i am 185cm, almost 6'1 and i have stood next to him whilst he was in sneakers. be lucky if he was 5'7, he is a small man
Brett said on 11/Aug/11
Hi Rob,

I saw Guy the Other day in sydneys eastern suburbs... I think his here for a premiere... he was dressed really wierdly...think Saturday night fever-ish... and commensurate to that dress code, he had a pair of solid 1.5 inch heels on... he looked around 5'10 in them... So realistically Id say hes within half an inch of that mark.
BlueBoy said on 14/Jun/11
@TheVerve that sheet of paper shown in the trailer describes some other character in the film which is being chased by the one played by Guy Pearce, so no lack of accuracy there.
James said on 29/Apr/11
Looked 5'9 (175cm) in LA Confidential.
Lenad is sexy said on 24/Apr/11
Looks 5'10-ish to me. His thin body makes him look taller when standing alone but he looks 5'10-ish when standing next to others
TheVerve180 said on 24/Feb/11

Its says that he is a 6ft2 white guy LOL. :D This would be an upgrade viper. But he might be 5ft9.75, 5ft10, 5ft10.5, 5ft11 any of these heights.
Moe said on 11/Feb/11
Hey, I met guy pearce in Lax once he daid he was off to pasadena, its a while ago, and I'm 6'0 he was slightly shorter, my guess is about 5'10...
Viper said on 11/Feb/11
Hes certaintly 5-10 If most on here are upgrading him, lol. Classic celebheights
jtm said on 10/Feb/11
a true 5'10 guy.
Leung said on 8/Feb/11
178cm is too low for Pearce.
Sam said on 7/Feb/11
He looked surprisingly close to Colin Firth's height in The King's Speech and only maybe a couple taller in photos:
Click Here
I think his thin frame and posture can give Pearce a taller appearance
TheVerve180 said on 12/Jan/11
Classic 5ft10-5ft11 guy.
Jen said on 17/Mar/07
Just saw 'First Snow' last night & in his scenes with Wm Fichtner, they has him standing on curbs to appear eye to eye or sitting. Fichtner is 6'0, so he is 5'9" at the absolute tallest.
Equisdobley said on 13/Feb/07
I strongly believe that he is a solid 5´11" ...
jason said on 13/Jan/07
he does lock shorter, from 5-9 to 5-10. i `de say he is 177-179 cm, not more.
in "the count of monte christo" from 2002 he plays with almost 6-2 Jim Caviezel,he locks much shorter, and he does lock 5-9 to 5-10 in the movie ,i would say he is 178 cm.
Anonymous said on 6/Dec/06
No way. Re-watch Memento for Guy's scenes with 6'2 Stephen Tobolowsky, who literally towers over Pierce. That's more than a 3 inch difference. I'd say around 5'9 is more accurate.
0kuma said on 1/Jun/06
wtf ForensicNYC is that picture from
KW said on 30/May/06
Rachel Griffiths is 5' 8 1/2. In "The Hard Word" Guy Pearce appears to be about 2 inches taller than her when she's wearing heels.
Frank2 said on 16/Mar/06
I'd say he's about 5'10". He and Russell Crowe were about the same height and neither were wearing what looked like lifts in LA Confidential. Also Kevin Spacey was close to the samne height and I've seen him in person and he's roughly 5'10".
Steve said on 21/Feb/06
I walked by him in NYC. No way he's 5'11". He was no taller than me and I'm 5'9".
Kala said on 10/Nov/05
No way is he five-eleven; that would make him a near six-footer!!! At least cut him down to 5"10 - it's clear if you watch Memento he's not more than an inch taller than Joe P.
bernar said on 27/Oct/05
he looks at least 5 cm higher than Pantoliano in Memento. Pantoliano is listed 5ft9inch on this site.
Tubbs said on 19/Oct/05
Pearce is shorter than Stefan Dennis, I saw a clip from neighbours yesterday, Stefans' about 5'9.
Mr Luis said on 21/Jun/05
Russel Crowe had lifts in LA Confidential because he was an inch taller than Spacey and almost two inches taller than Guy Pearce.

I Think that Guy Pearce is 5'10", maybe 5.9 1/2", but not much shorter.
ADG said on 21/Jun/05
5'11"??? No way. Watch "LA Confidential" or "The Count of Monte Cristo", and compare him to Russell Crowe and Jim Caveziel. If he's 5'9", I'd be surprised.

[Editor Rob: yes, the more see of this guy the more he doesn't look it...]
Chris said on 24/Apr/05
When I saw the movie, two brothers, he looked shorter to me, like 5.9, maybe 5.10. I´m not sure but I think he´s under 180 cm.

[Editor Rob: I saw an old scene from Neighbours and you know...Guy Pearce really could be shorter, he really didn't look if anything, taller than Stefan Dennis who isn't that big a guy]
