Q: You're really tall...did you tower over Mel?
A: I'm 6 feet 1, but he has such a large presence on-screen that you don't notice it. Anyway, I'm 5 inches taller than my real dad.

Disagree man. He’s clearly minimum 6’0.5 with Jake.

"Anything under 6’0.5 is just a joke at this point. No comments will be taken seriously if you try to argue that"

He's under 6'0.5" With Jake. Show us some pics to show us why you think he is at least 6'0.5".
Height Analyzer 2 said on 15/Apr/23
He always seemed exactly an inch taller than Christian Bale, so I think 6'0.5 is fair (because Bale isn't 5'11.75 but closer to 5'11.5)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/23
Editor Rob: 6ft 0.75 is what many have him at. I can still see it as an option.



I'd strongly consider that for Heath Ledger, Bryan Brown and Richard Harris
Jawilder said on 18/Jan/23
@cbrady yeah 6’0.5 is a great listing for him.
Cbrady said on 17/Jan/23
@ Jawilder -- I like Rob's listing of 184.2 for Ledger. I don't think he is edging towards 185 though.

@ BalticGuy and Darksol64-- For a man in the 185 range to have a 5-9.5 eye level sounds quite uncommon considering the standard 4 to 4.5 inches from pupil to crown top. The man would need to have his head tilted up about an inch to hit a 5-9.5 eye line.

Simply look at Mark Gatiss pictured with Rob and with a shoe advantage and we can see his eye level is well under 5-9.5. Commenters don't seem to believe that Gatiss has an eye level even over a flat 5-9 and he has a higher eye level than most!

6’0.5-6’0.75 would be a 🔒 for his active low. Prob woke up 6’1 3/8. Wonder how many mm apart we would be.

Definitely 183-184 range,at worst a flat 1.83
Darksol64 said on 9/Jan/23
@Baltic

As a fellow strong 6'1 range nearing 6'2 guy (I may edge you half-inch) I fully agree. I can hold a solid 5'9.5 eyeline at a low before bed, barefoot. I'd pretty much be looking at the top near his hair.

Looks like a guy with classic 6'0 body frame to me. Rob is being generous with the listing; 6'0.5 isn't impossible but I agree that it would be absolutely top of the mark for him with lower being likely.

He would be lucky to hit 6'1 right out of bed.

I feel he might measure something like 6'0 1/8 at a low but I can't guess that, so I'll guess flat 6'0 because average guess is too high in my opinion.
BalticGuy said on 8/Jan/23
If Matt Damon is the credited 5'9 1/2" then there is absolutely no prayer for Heath having been anywhere near 6'1", much as I like him, that is *not* a 6'1" guy. I'm about 6'1.5" most of the day, maybe closer to 6'2" in the morning and closer to 6'1.25" at night and I 100% guarantee you no 5'9.5" guy is looking that tall next to me. How Damon looks here isn't far off from how my 5'11" brother looks next to me - right around a 2.5" difference in height - which if Damon is 5'9.5" would put Heath Ledger at right around the 6 foot mark on the dot. If he were a real 6'1", 5'9.5" should put the top of Damon's head right around mid-eye level for Ledger. Instead, if you draw a line - and notice that Damon is slouching a bit because Heath is putting some of his weight on his shoulder - from the top of Damon's head over to Ledger's head to the left, the top of his head comes up to his forehead somewhere in the middle, which is VERY consistent given the typical range of male head sizes with a height difference of between 2.5" and 3". So, at very BEST, Heath might hope to eek out a little over the 6 foot mark - maybe 183.5 to 184 cm, but to hit 6'1 (about 185.5 cm) he'd need nearly an inch in height ESPECIALLY since Damon is not standing fully upright here.

I wouldn't put Heath at any LESS than 6'0" but no more than 6'0.5". Somewhere in that range. To give him the benefit of the doubt I'd split the difference and say MOST LIKELY, Heath Ledger's REALISTIC maximum height was 183.5 cm, or around 6'0.25" - in your typical pair of shoes that could be boosted to close to 6'1" - and most men when they state their height ARE including shoes so it would track with Heath's claim (also why most men's stated height is about an inch more than their actual height without shoes) of being "6'1".

Note that in any case, he still comes in taller than average for sure - keep in mind Matt Damon is right around smack dab average male height and you get the idea.

If at all possible, Rob, please could you accept my second submission only? Thank you! 😋

The Sun Eater, instead of The Sin Eater, sounds stupid! 🤪🥴
Sandy Cowell said on 6/Jan/23
The lovely Caroline Munro is showing her Cellar Club fans a film called The Order tonight. I recognise the cast, which includes Heath, Mark Addy and the gorgeous, tall, model-like Shannyn Sossaman but my copy is called The Sun Eater.

It’s a very good film, typical of what Caroline has to offer.

Wasn’t Heath Ledger a handsome fellow? Regardless of how he looked, it didn’t stop him from succumbing to drugs. What a tragic waste of a beautiful life and talent. 😢

6ft0.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Dec/22
Edward, you’re a solid if not strong 6ft1. You’re at 185cm after a long day, not shorter like Rob said if you got measured at 2:00pm you’d easily be 186cm. Out of bed you’d probably be 188cm
Edward Mullen said on 19/Dec/22
Hi rob . What height should one claim if at 9:30 pm they measure 185 cm
Editor Rob
6ft 1, but if you were going by say a normal annual physical, it's likely you could get between 185.5-186 range, so saying 186 is fair.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Dec/22
Out of bed: 186.5-187cm
Before bed: 184.5-185cm
QM6'1.5"QM said on 11/Dec/22
No less than 6'0". He'd always looks tall in his movies. Even as legendary bad postured Joker, he was taller than Bale on the screen.
Also noticeable taller than Jake. Long skinny legs too.
Died so young, only 28 y.o man, but you never know because it's Hollywood...

Great actor. Icon. Legend. R.I.P Ledger!

184.5cm at his low I think. 6ft ¾ fits. Absolute icon.
Slim1.75m said on 4/Aug/22
Rob this comment might sound a bit offensive but what ever gave you the idea that ledger was any less then 6'0¾ I mean I get the fact of 6'1 being one of the most inflated claims

i.e Jensen Ackles,Sam Witwer,etc

But Ledger struck me as a text book example.
Editor Rob
6ft 0.75 is what many have him at. I can still see it as an option.
Jordan87 said on 4/Aug/22
mnecro,

Ledger looks a bit over 6'0 with Jake. I for one belive Jake to under 5'11 but I think there is a bit more than and inch between them and Ledger is 6'0.25" ish
mnecro said on 24/Apr/22
Jake is indeed well under 5ft11. Ledger was 6ft flat.

Jawilder said on 22/Apr/22
@Rampage Yeah Heath was 6’0.75 at a low imo. He could look a solid 6’1 at times also.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Apr/22
Yeah Rob, I think 6ft0¾ was a minimum range for Ledger, with the full 6ft1 not exactly impossible either. He certainly has a fair chunk of height over Gyllenhaal...either that or Jake is well under 5ft11!

Click Here

If anything he looks to be approaching 6ft2 in those photos! Even if we were to place Jake at 5ft11 flat, there's still an easy 2in and then some in Heath's favor.

For me in all honesty...Heath was most likely 6ft1½ to 6ft1¾ getting up, hung around the 6ft1 mark for most of the day and worst case maybe dipped a little shy of it before calling it a day but nothing dramatic. I just think 6ft0½ pushes guys like Gyllenhall, Bale and Damon down more...
Editor Rob
Well I certainly wouldn't put him less than 6ft 1/2.
Cbrady said on 5/Apr/22
@ Rampage I am not sure if she is in heels but it certainly seems like the two taller men are imposing themselves on her and she is being prohibited from standing tall and is dropping height in her back.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Apr/22
@Cbrady: Maybe that's because she's in heels?

6'0" flat.

@ Rampage Rose Byrne at 5'6" is standing next to Heath and he doesn't seem to be a big seven inches over her.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Apr/22
Editor Rob: Ledger has a fair share of commenters who would go with 0.75 or 1.

Yep, either of those could be argued I think

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Mar/22
Looks 186-187cm range with Bryan Brown

Click Here

That's 1998 I think so Heath was 19 and Bryan was 50 so likely still at his peak. Bryan is still comfortably taller than Sam Neill (who Rob met) in recent photos Click Here Click Here Click Here

Rob, I think both guys are under listed slightly I'd give them 6ft1...Bryan in his 70's probably has still lost a bit though

6ft1½ easy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Feb/22
Could pass for a solid 6ft1 at times but I'll settle for 6ft0¾. He still looked comfortably taller than Bale in Dark Knight, slouching and with less shoe (Bale in his Batman gear would have had considerably more heel)

@ Slim 6'1.5 - 5’7” is closer to average!

Well, I‘m around 186,5 out of bed and low 184,5 before bed, when he is that same height he can be surely seen as a 6‘1 guy. Not just morning height. Since, at least for me, Istill measure around 185,3 afternoon.
I‘d give him the full flat 6‘1
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 16/Feb/21
Out of bed: 186.5 centimeters
Before bed: 184.5 centimeters

He was slightly taller than Christian Bale, who is a weak six footer. Heath Ledger was also a bit shorter than Morgan Freeman, and noticeably taller than Andrew Garfield.

6’1” might have been a morning measurement for him.

just over 6ft1 out of bed like 6ft1 1/8 and 6ft0 3/8 at a normal evening low 6ft0.5 is fair

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jul/20
Heath still managed to look an inch taller than Bale in Batman Begins even when the latter clearly had a footwear advantage. With Bale now settled at 5ft11¾ (shortest I’d argue and could still manage the full 6ft) this mark for Heath is too low. He clearly looks around 6ft1 next to Damon


Rob, could we give Heath 6ft0¾?
Editor Rob
you could say he has looked 6ft 0.5 up to 1 during his short career, so that 3/4 may well be close to what he might have measured.
Kebapsever said on 12/Jul/20
I’m certain he measured 6’1. Definitely deserves an upgrade.

Not a chance he was over 6' in his socks.

Those weren't just bought for comfort, they were bought for adding a couple INCHES at the heel and just as likely, are rather expensive custom made shoes.

Wow, that quote about Mel Gibson... Heath was really humble. Any other narcissistic actor his height would have said something like ''yeah he is tiny, I had to take my shoes off to be in the same scene with him'' but he made Mel's lack of height look as something positive.

Hello!
Dear Tyriztor.
The minimum height of Heath Ledger before bed is 185 cm. The minimum height after sleep is 187 cm. Heath Ledger is above Ryan Gosling (183.5) by 6-7 cm. Which is very strange. I assume that Gosling 180 cm. Click Here Click Here
Paul Bettany? (192 cm). OK. Paul Bettany and Jeremy Irons (188-189 cm) The difference between them is 3 cm. Click Here Click Here Click Here

Hello, Rob. Tell me, what is the difference between them? Ledger is listed as 184 cm. We know that Michelle 162 cm + heels (8-10 cm). On the photo - 170 cm. Heath looks like 6.2 people. (188-190 cm) I myself am 189.5. My friends are about 170 cm. I easily see myself in his place. He is not 184 or 185. Heath Ledger is the head and shoulders above Michelle.

Hi, Rob, I fixed the image. In my opinion, Heath Ledger has more than 185 cm. Photo proves.

Djimon Hounsou's Height 6ft 1 ½ (186.7 cm),
Heath Ledger's Height 6ft ½ in (184.2 cm)?

Generally I'd say there was around an inch between them.

Ledger would edge tennant and Amell.
Jordan87 said on 13/Dec/17
Jake was Sub 5'11 but not by much ( The perspective was off when Conan Measured him, HE is not as low as 5'10 like it showed)He was about 5'10.5'5'10.75 when measured, which means Ledger certainly makes it over the 6 foot mark. I could see Ledger being near 6'1 in the early AM Hours

Might be 185. He edged most of the Dark Knight cast.

He might be more of a 185cm guy - he edges out Jake Gyllenhaal quite a bit.

Nice picture celeb6'1.5".


Even pictures prove that Heath is actually 3'.25"-5 inches taller than Matt Damon rather than 3.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 16/Oct/17
This mark is too low for him. He only appeared shorter than this mark by Christian Bale, and that had to do with the fact that Heath intentionally made himself appear shorter with his posture for the role. He really looked 6'1" in comparison to Jake Gylenhaal, especially if Jake was measured in the 5'11" range by Conan:

Slim said on 23/Sep/17
Mark(5'9.5")

There's just too many 6'0.5"(184) listed guys that are actually 6'0.75"(184.5). Ledger, pine, Cavill, cena, and call me crazy but Miller with good posture(he stoops to appear smaller hence his personality....)
Mark(5'9.5") said on 22/Sep/17
He can really be 6'0.75".

I can imagine this guy being very similar to Henry Cavill and John Cena.

Perfect Joker height, generally in comics he's 6'5 but that's probably a different version of joker, the original joker is around 6ft to 6ft 1

Jordan87 said on 1/Jun/17
His Height with Jake looks different at times. Maybe Posture or Jake's footwear plays a part. Heath always did strike me as taller than 6'0. Not by alot, but Id put my money on him certainly clearing the 6 foot mark.

Ledger had a perfect height a man can have. I think you're a little too strict to him, Rob. This may be his night height but I think he was a bit taller during a day.

No because he is really this range 182-183cm his real height

When people comment something like "Heath Ledger is 184.7 cm tall", I wonder did they measure themselves or how do they know it. At least tell us a false story.

josh jeffords said on 15/Oct/16
Heath was a good actor he really shined in a odd candle burning light in dark knight.
As for height he had a long lanky build looked 6 ft most the time on occasion especially thin he could pass for a weak 6 1.
I cant remember him ever looking under a weak 6 ft and he often had loose posture.
And lets not forget he is australian and for some odd reason they have been getting low rated height wise, but then over 6 ft is tall so why bother being exact.
He is listed 6 1 elsewhere id say healthy good posture he was a real 6 1.
Rip went away young and full of promise.
HonestSlovene said on 13/Oct/16
This is a perfect example of a 3 inch difference. Heath being 6'0.5"-6'0.75" and Matt 5'9.5"-5'9.75".
Giorgi said on 11/Sep/16
On your youtube video you argued that he's between 182 and 183. I think he was more like 184-186.
Simon said on 19/Aug/16
I think it's fair that's he's been downgraded from 6'1. Jake Gyllenhaal is listed at 181 cm and there is definetely not 4 cm between the them. In Brokeback Mountain they both give the two tall guys who are around the same height.
Jeff said on 29/Jul/16
Rob, do you think he looked very tall in the Dark Knight?
Editor Rob
overall I wouldn't have said that tall, but considering his posture at times...
slothee said on 24/Jul/16
This is a good listing! I always thought he never really looked like a true 6'1er and thought at best a weak 6'1". He was probably a solid 6'0.5", 6'0.75" tops.
S.J.H said on 17/Jul/16
He could be 6'0 even

@heightinspector4fun, interesting stuff ! Maybe Heath was really 183cm at most, if he fitted perfectly in armour of a guy who was in between of 5'8" and 5'10".
heightinspector4fun said on 27/Mar/16
I searched that when Ledger wore ned kelly's original armour fitted perfectly commenting they were the same height and weight. I also searched and found that kelly is stated to be 5 foot 8 on google and 5 foot 10 according to prison records. Hmmm i wonder how '' huge '' heath fitted there . Also i wonder about his comment on kelly's height

yeah this seems right now when gyllenhall is down to 181 this seems more right.also with gibson he didnt look over 183
amaterasu said on 25/Feb/16
While I agree that Jake can be in 5'10" range, I still wouldn't put Heath at anything below 6 foot. I think he is same height with guy like Henry Cavil
Johno said on 21/Feb/16
Heath at times also appears to be nearly 2 inches taller then Gyllenhaal, 5'11.5-6'0.
Johno said on 17/Feb/16
I don't believe Matt Damon is the best candidate for Heath's height to be assessed on. Heath was 1-inch taller then Gyllenhaal and it is quite evident from his height measurement on Conan that Gyllenhaal is around 5'10.25.

5'11.25-5'11.5
Idk said on 29/Jan/16
I think he's the full 6'1". Was not a height conscious guy whatsoever and rarely stood his tallest
Drob92 said on 24/Jan/16
I don't think I agree with the downgrade at lowest he is 6 3/4 id say ledger just slouches. He looks a full 3 in taller than Matt Damon. And at least 1.5 more than Janke
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/16
He had 2in on Jake Gyllenhaal in BBM and about 3in on Damon in the above picture.

Rob, maybe 6ft0¾ is a better fit for Heath?
184.3cm (Night) said on 31/Dec/15
If Matt keeps his 5'10 listing then Heath should be 6'1. However i think like many that Matt is a weak 5'10 so the listing could be right.
Idk said on 30/Dec/15
I think he is full 185. Not a height conscious guy.
Paleman said on 9/Dec/15
There's no way he was ANYWHERE under the current listing. He was this height (184cm) at WORST. 185cm seems spot on, 186cm not impossible. 187-188cm - now that's stretching it a little bit, but could be near that mark in the morning...
Thomas6ft1 said on 5/Dec/15
That's wrong Rob. He's 6'1" easily. At worst, 6'0.75". He was taller than 5'8" Heaher Graham in heels. He's easily 6'2" in 1" shoes.
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 24/Nov/15
6'0 3/4" is more accurate. There was no way that he was shorter than this mark (I even think that 6'1"-6'1 1/4" would be accurate as well).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/15
He did look 186-187cm w/h Gyllenhaal.
But looked barely over 6ft beside Mel Gibson.
this is bogus said on 8/Nov/15
this is bogus, he’s way closer to 6’1" than you think rob. you might have a keen eye for height but you’re not on the money here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Nov/15
"Heath Ledger height: 6ft 0¾in (185cm)"

I think that could be spot on. His height was all over the place really. Looked barely 3in taller than Mel Gibson in The Patriot but then was an easy 2in taller than Jake Gyllenhaal in Brokeback Mountain. He edged out Bryan Brown (6ft1) in Two Hands (phenomenal movie). So he could look as high as 187cm (probably was that mark out of bed) and as low as 183cm (w/h bad posture).
Mike said on 2/Nov/15

Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 23/Oct/15
I felt that part of the reason why his character was so intimidating to others in 10 Things I hate about you had to do with him being one of the tallest people around. He looked 186-187 CM in the movie.
amaterasu said on 10/Oct/15
Think about 6'0" flat for him now, since Jake turned to be in 5'10" range. 183cm for Heath now makes sense, but no less than that.

if he was barefeet in the photo and the mugshot was reliable, Heath could pass for a "6'2" zone guy" but probably he wore shoes and also the mugshot aren't a good/perfect source! 6'1" is fine IMO

Frank181cm says on 19/Jan/15
Hey Rob, did he ever claim 188?
[Editor Rob: I've never read anything like that.]

Actually rob I remember, time ago, that I have seen two Mugshots of him: in one he was a child and was likely 170 cms and in the other he was maybe 18-19 and looked in the 188 cms...
However the mugshot wasn't a police one, and we couldn't see his shoes!
Overall I always thought that the height catching by mugshot is just a bit distorted (look at 50 cents, for example)...

I think would be better if you will use only the height range, without saying "morning, mid-morning, lunchtime..."
I'll give you just an advice because it is not pretty accurate!

Kal said on 2/Sep/12
Has anyone seen hin in Two Hands, the Australian film he did before coming to the u.s.a. He was only 19 at the time, but either australian builders make doorways gigantic, or he's not as tall as everyone claims him to be. If you watch the scene in that film where he's taking money to an elderly lady, he looks small in comparison to the doorway of her apartment, like 5'11" at most. He's got cowboy boots on in brokback, so those give him a 1.75 inch heel, which would make him seem 6'1" and that would mean that in regular shoes he would have been 6'0" even. I've watched all his films and always found myself paying attention to how tall he was in comparison to doorways, and he was always significantly shorter that a doorway in every film he did. So I say 6'0" no more, no less.
Jessie said on 26/Aug/12
6'1" seems to be about right. He was tall but not giant-like. Oddly enough he seemed shorter than Bale in Dark Knight but Bale is actually an inch or two shorter than him. Movie magic, I guess.
