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.

Nick, I’m very impressed by your ballsy case for a 189cm+ Heath Ledger!

Rob, any chance of 6'0 5/8th" for Ledger?

He actually looks taller than a Batsuit Christian Bale.
Editor Rob
He could measure it.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 22/Oct/18
I feel he could be a 6'0.75" guy.

Well with Bettany now at 6ft3½, Heath did look a comfortable 6ft1 range

He played a very slender Joker!

Rob I believe Late Heath Ledger deserves an upgrade, he always looked over 6’1” in almost every movie he acted in I’m gonna give him 186 cm
JJAK said on 15/Jun/18
Weird guy looked a big 5 11 with bad posture so 6 most times.
He at times looked kinda big 6 1 plus.
No reason for lifts so bale is 5 11 plus not 6 ft.
Nick said on 16/Apr/18
Hello, Rob. Have a look, please. Heath Ledger in 2000 was on the show David Letterman. David listed (On your site 186 and on IMDb as 188 cm) It's exactly at least 185 ever. On his show was Donald Trump in 1997. 21 years ago, none of them could not lose growth. The video shows practically no difference in growth. Click Here
Now attention! Heath Ledger after 3 years on the show David Letterman. Click Here ..
Heath, so high that he has to bend down. We exclude the possibility of elevators as it is in slaps. I begin to believe in the original 6.3 (190.5 cm) heights of Heath Ledger. How can you explain this to Rob? I see that Hit is high. People who write that Ledger 5.11 this is funny!. I'm sure he was tall exactly 6.3 guy. He was surrounded by such people as Mat Damon and Jake Jilenhole. I'm sure they all used elevators. I already wrote that Heath was one height with Jeremy Irons 13 years ago, like his son, they all had (189 cm)
Heath Ledger on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" - 8/19/05 Click Here ..
It's hard to say what the difference is Conan O'Brien (193 cm) and Heath Ledger. But the difference is small. Exactly Heath was without elevators, on the video he showed his shoes to Conan. It does not converge, the comparison of Heath and Jake Jilenhole, because Jake was significantly lower than Conan O'Brien. So Jake used elevators with Heath Ledger? Rob, Ledger deserved at least 189 cm.
David Letterman and Billy Eichner (191 cm) Click Here
Heath Ledger in spanking was higher than David Letterman. Not possible 184 cm for Heath Ledger.
The hit needs updating.
Editor Rob

People can definitely make a case that he could have been 6ft 1, but 189cm? As mentioned previously, he was over 2 inches smaller than paul bettany. Of course, for any actor you could find photos of them looking taller or shorter than their claim.
Nick said on 16/Apr/18
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


Heath Ledger and Jeremy Irons. See this image! Click Here Click Here
Jeremy Irons. It is necessary to take into account the big heels Jeremy Irons.
Heath has inch heels. As well as at Paul. Jeremy Irons in boots with Ledger and Bettany. Heath Ledger is 189 cm in boots.

He does look taller compared to Gosling in those photos and Michelle's heels look pretty similar
Nick said on 2/Mar/18
Hello, Rob. Look here please. I analyzed the photo here. Michelle Williams (162 + heels 10 cm) and Ryan Gosling (184 cm). The level of Michelle's eyes on Ryan's chin and a little higher. Click Here Click Here
Let's look at Michelle and Heath. Click Here Click Here Michelle's eyes do not reach the chin of Heath Ledger. Ledger is 6-7 cm longer. Ledger is longer than Gosling by 1/3 of the face. Ledger can not be 184 cm. Rob, Please update Heath Ledger (189-190).
Nick said on 1/Mar/18
Max Irons 189.2 cm. The father was 189-190 in his youth or 13 years ago was 188-189. Click Here Heath Ledger is of the same height as Jeremy Irons 13 years ago. Jeremy was 56 years old, he could not lose his height. Click Here Ledger 188-189.

Click Here Jeremy Irons, 4-5 cm, above Henry Cavill. (which is 184 cm)
Rob, Irons, please look. Irons 186-187 now. So he was exactly in his youth or even 13 years ago 188-189. At the age of 70, he lost 4-5 cm.
Heath Ledger needs to be updated.
Nick said on 1/Mar/18
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. Even with an unfavorable foreshortening. Heath Ledger's increase is required.

Ledger would edge tennant and Amell.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Dec/17
Colberto I wouldn't go below B and A isn't an unreasonable guess either. That still wouldn't make him quite a solid 6ft1. 185cm flat is actually just under it.

I think he was in the same neighbourhood as Amell and Tennant, almost 6ft1. An exact 1in on Bale
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
Mister lennon said on 13/Dec/17

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.

Heath would have a solid cm on Bale. Bale 5'11.75 Heath 6'0.25, or Bale 6'0 Heath 6'0.5

*********************
99.9% agree.
Colberto said on 27/Jul/17
IMO he is in the 6' range. Looks 2 1/2 inches taller than Matt. Doesn't come off as a 6'1" range man at all. I think max he would measure is 184 with erect posture. I see 183 for him.

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

I can see him easily in the 183.5 to 184 cm range a legit 6'
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.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 11/May/17
Rob, how likely is 6'0.75" on a good day?

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.

Solid 6'1 guy. Looked like 5'11 1/2 - 6ft in the Dark Knight cuz he had a bad posture.

I can see 7 cms between Heath and Matt.
Heath at 184-185 cms and Matt at 177-178 cms...
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.
Willes189 said on 9/Sep/16
Very good and comfortable height nonetheless, I remember when i was this height (184cm) in the summer of 2013
Willes189 said on 20/Aug/16
183.5 for Heath and 181.5 for Jake, this is my honest 100% REAL opinion,
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
truth said on 26/May/16
Either 6ft1/185cm or 6ft0.5/184cm, he has always looked those heights.

Rob, what made you downgrade Ledger for? he was a strong 6'1.
Editor Rob: the more I saw the more I thought 184 might have been nearer...of course it is still a guess and could be wrong, nothing is certain!

I think he was 6ft1. Looks it with Matt Damon and also with Jake Gyllenhaal.

@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.

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

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)...

Hey rampage what kind of scheme did you used?
Actually I reach my daily lowest at 5-6 pm, if I woke up at 7-8 am but at 1-2 pm I start to be very close to it...usually it happens (don't know why) that at 9-10 pm I am like 0,1" taller than my daily lowest height (that I reach from 5 to 8 pm)...
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!

Solid 6'1. Gave one of the darkest performances of a film character with the joker.

Looked big in Batman even though he had a bad posture ,

Hey, the Joker is exactly my size! Hahaha
grizz said on 3/Aug/14
Giulio, source? DC Database claims Joker is 6ft and 160 lbs heavy.
[Editor Rob: actually in front of me DC Stars has Joker stats as 6ft 5 and 192 pounds! Batman 6ft 2 210 pounds, Robin 5ft 1]

6ft1?! Holy crap, he looked like a 5ft11 guy in Batman. Sure with bad posture,but I'm still surprised. Poor Bale- shorter than his butler,the Joker and old Freeman,even though Batman's supposed to be taller than they are.

joker is 6'4 in the comics

6'0.75 would be bang on for his barefoot height
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/14
Nah, 6ft1 range is right on for Heath.
Looks it with Matt Damon
Freddy said on 24/Feb/14
I think he was more like a strong 6ft guy, well at least thats how he always looked like to me.....he probably rounded up a to 6'1 because it sounds better than saying 'a smidge over 6ft'
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jan/14
187-188cm out of bed
Hypado said on 25/Dec/13
Same height of me, 185cm
Rusty said on 14/Oct/13
He was slouching horribly in batman, which made him look shorter. They likely also gave bale bigger footwear to appear taller
afka said on 7/Oct/13
He was tall man.nearly 6'1 but probably strong 6 ft
wiltonstilts said on 17/Jul/13
He looked shorter In the dark night. Thats probably because they only wanted Christian bale to appear taller. I buy 6 01 for ledger.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jul/13
He was a full 6ft1(185.5cm) and he could look closer to 6ft2
Green said on 2/May/13
Though this dude was 6'2..guess not.
Spud said on 2/Jan/13
Always thought this guy was like 5'10/5'11.....but very clear from batman that he is 6'1 based on the fact he about 1/1.5" taller than 5'11.5/6'0 Christian bale......plus the fact that he has a thin slender build made him always appear to be taller...
James said on 19/Nov/12
I think 6'0.5 is closer given how tall he looked next too jake
Anon said on 5/Nov/12
That is just silly! I was Heath's closest mate from 2006 until his far more than tragic passing. 5 feet 11, taller in shoes and 6 feet 1 inch in cowboy boots.
Missing you H.....May the Gods keep you waiting on Olympus until I get there. Love and all that bloody rubbish ;-) Your lonely mate
Joey said on 30/Oct/12
solid 6ft (183cm) without shoes I'd say.....6'1 in regluar shoes
anon said on 28/Sep/12
has never looked short to me, definitely a legit 6 feet 1...Watching Knights tale, 10 things I hate about you etc. I thought he was always 6 feet 2 or a bit!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/12
Looked 6ft1-6ft2 in A Knight's Tale, The Dark Knight and in Brokeback Mountain. But looked closer to 6ft(183cm) in Ned Kelly.

His posture wasn't the greatest in The Dark Knight, but it was part of the shtick he adopted to portray the Joker.
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.

possible six feet for Ledger and five-eleven for Bale?
Silent d said on 3/Nov/11
Much taller than 5 foot 9 mel gibson in the patriot. Taller than 6 foot jake gyllanhael and 5 foot 10 matt damon. In knights tale he was tall next to paul bettany. 6 foot 1 seems accurate. Great actor, died to soon.
Sean73 said on 9/Oct/11
If they were to remake the movie Warriors i would have cast him as gang leader swan.Now that he`s gone i`d say michael fassbender.What do you think?I do think 6-1 for sure.An inch difference between he and bale.
Spence said on 31/Jul/11
Damon is 5'9
Link said on 28/Jul/11
He was a legit 6'1.
James said on 26/Jul/11
strange how he looked nowhere near 6'1 with 5'8.5 Matt Damon.... 6'0.5 might be closer?
jake said on 25/Jul/11
As an Australian, Ledger's untimely death had even more of an impact..terrific actor. I think he was 6ft1.5 out of bed and 6ft0.75 at the end of the day. So 6ft0.75 or 6ft1 in my opinion. He towered Plummer in Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. I very much doubt Plummer is as tall as the listed 5ft9 though nowadays. In this film he looked 5ft8 flat.

Looked slightly taller than Bale (182 cm), Heath Ledger was probably 183-184 cm tall, not quite 185 cm, alltough he could look it at times. May he R.I.P.

I worked on the crew of BBM. Mr. Ledger himself said he was 6.2". In shoes closer 6.3" :) May he RIP. He was an awesome man.
Lenad is sexy said on 25/Apr/11
I doubt he was over 6ft1. I'd still say 6'0 min but
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Apr/11
He was great in 10 Things I Hate About You and of course in The Dark Knight.

Looked taller than 6"1 because he was so skinny
James said on 14/Apr/11
Its sad that he is dead but never the less looked 6ft to me.

Jake is 6 ft and Heath is 6'1". Those heights are both right. Jake looked 6 ft in Brothers and Prince of Persia, and Heath looked a solid 6'1" in A Knight's Tale and The Dark Knight. There was only an inch difference in height between Heath and Jake as well in the movie Brokeback Mountain.

he was around 6'1 and 6'3,i say so,because a very good source,close to heath,told me so..he grew a bit,plus he was fit,so he looked taller,that was very sexy about him..
Hugh 190cm said on 22/Jun/09
185-187cm was his range.
Rusty said on 15/Jun/09
The Dark Knight wasnt accurate with height portrayls. Joker is supposed to be 6'3" and 191 pounds and Batman at 6'2" and 210 pounds. So Batman is supposed to be a big guy. Bale is 6'0" and Ledger is 6'1".

He was 1.5 inches taller than Christian Bale so between 185cm-187cm is spot on.
unknown said on 20/May/09
He is 6'1
Clay said on 20/May/09
In TDK he was doing a hunched over posture for The Joker character. If he stood up straight he would be a legit 6'1, or at the minimum 6 foot and a half.
glenn said on 15/May/09
pic was taken in 2001.
James said on 14/May/09
Yeah I guess Heaths posture was poor next to glenn. Well with the slouch he had going on in the pic he looked 5'11. Wasn't glenns pic like 10 years old? So he would have been 20 in the picture so he may have not done all his growing when that photo was taken?
Hugh 190cm said on 13/May/09
Rob is your opinion on Heath's height.
Hugh 190cm said on 13/May/09
Ah come on James he looked at least 6ft1 next to Glenn. I buy a strong 6ft1 for this guy. I've read 187cm for this guy and I've occasionally seen a couple of 6ft2 listings but that is a little too high. 6ft1 looks good but 186cm sounds better. Maybe was 187cm in the morning. He was over one inch taller than Bale.
James said on 11/May/09
Didn't look 6'1 at all next to glenn.
unknown said on 10/May/09
No less than 6 ft 1...always slouches alot and is a tad more than an inch taller than bale in dark knight. 6 feet and less is just being naive, never appeared short on screen ever...God rest his soul!
jf said on 10/May/09
6'1" shocks me. I would have credited Ledger for 5'10" or so. He isn't much taller than his supershort co-stars in 10 Things I Hate About You. Unless he actually grea after the age of 19 which would be very rare. Or if his co-stars utilized platform shoes in his scenes. 6'6" is absurd for Heath. No way is he 6'6" tall, I can't believe that is being cited as a truth. 6'1" is one thing, 6'6" is like...craziness.

186-187cm is more accurate. Watch the Dark Knight. He's 1.5 inches taller than Christian Bale.

I can buy a solid 182cm at the lowest. But I'm sorry Hugh anything over this listing is overdoing it.
\_-_-_-Hugh-_-_-_/ said on 3/Mar/09
Even when slouching he looked a good inch or so taller than Christian Bale.
Joe said on 27/Feb/09
Victor, IN Dark Knight Ledger was slouching because he wanted Joker to have bad posture. You can even see scenes where he is really slouching.
\ -_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 25/Feb/09
I'll admit that he looked 6ft tops next to Matt Damon. But the reality is that he was 6ft1 minimum. He was 1.5 inches taller than Bale and an inch taller than 184-185cm Bryan Brown.

perhaps a better picture for height comparison. assuming bowie is now 5-9, there is about 3 inches (maybe slightly more) between them. charlize theron seems to be slouching but cant really comment on her height because her footware is unknown. ledger looks close to 6-1.

Eckhart on this site is 180cm. i see about 3-4 cm difference between him and heath. i have say though, ledger's posture is always loose. i'd say 185cm in the morning and 184 in the evening.
joe said on 8/Jan/09
i saw heath ledger at a restaurant a few years back, and im 5'10. he looked about 3 inches taller than me. so id say a solid 6 footer. hes also thin which can give the appearance of being taller. people think im a bit taller than 5'10, but i have really long arms and legs which make me look a bit taller than i am, same thing with heath.
linebacker40 said on 7/Jan/09
He didn't look really different from Bale in The Dark Knight. I suppose anything in between 6'-6'1".
Lenad said on 5/Jan/09
Looked more like 5ft11.5 than 6ft1. 6ft2 is laughable and 6ft4 is freaking insane.
