American actor best known for starring in movies such as Donnie Darko, Brokeback Mountain, End of Watch, Prisoners, The Day After Tomorrow, Nightcrawler and Source Code. He is quoted age 23 on jakegyllenhaal.com as saying, [now] "I'm happily 6 feet tall." and on the Podcast Mystery Show he 'closed the case' by saying to the host Starlee that he was 5ft 11.5...however, the case was reopened when Starlee appeared on the Conan O'Brien show, with Conan whipping out his tape measure and roughly measuring Jake as somewhere around the 5ft 11 range.
5'10 Dude said on 10/Oct/21 I think this listing is accurate. I doubt he's anything under 5'11 and I feel like he can appear tallish. The hair does probably help a bit with perception.
Slim 6'1.75 said on 4/Oct/21 Flat 5’11
Eusebiu - 6'1" (185 cm) said on 4/Oct/21 He is definitely in the 180-181 cm range and in my opinion he is an honest man.
Judging by pictures presented I see him around ~3 cm shorter than Heath Ledger (listed 184 cm) and around ~7 cm shorter than Ryan Reynolds (listed 188 cm).
Although he claimed 5'11.5 (182 cm) and also 6'0" (183 cm) on different ocassions, I do believe those claims might be his morning height.
All in all, I believe that his listing (181 cm) is spot on.
Johno said on 2/Oct/21 Pre-Conan measurement, I can see that the majority of Celebheight users had him at 5'10+, 5'11 and it seems they sort of correct.
Conan's height measurement skills are almost poor as that pedestrian who measured Kimmel's height at 5'11.75 and Hart's at 5'4+, I don't see how he read 5'11.5 so basically to me, he was exaggerating and who could blame him? Jake was a guest on his show, he isn't exactly going to lowball him.
What is clear to me however, Jake is 5'10+, that much I can derive. The top of his hair seemed below the 5'11 mark and the tape measure was only a few inches forward near his toe as compared to the top of head in relation to the camera thus, the perspective wasn't really blown up in scale. He was below 5'11 at that point in time, somewhere between 5'10-5'10.5, this is likely an evening measurement. 5'11 could be his top measurement.
The man wasn't that much shorter than Jimmy Fallon and similar in stature to Jimmy Kimmel so he isn't a short guy, an inch above average for an American male. I believe he would be the same height as Dicaprio if they were to be barefoot.
Giovanni said on 27/Sep/21 Just watched the movie Southpaw. If 50 cent is close to 6' then Jake is close to 5'11". I suspect anywhere from 5'10.75-5'11", nothing below or above that.
Pere said on 24/Sep/21 @Rob what do you think is his out of bed and before bed height.
A possible range might be from almost 6ft to 5ft 11 after his dinner.
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 14/Sep/21 Watching new Jake film the guilty, pretty good. He looks close to 5'11 in it without suspect footwear. 5'10.75 is more likely than 5'10.5. I doubt he's the full 5'11 though, let alone a quarter over.
Jawilder said on 14/Sep/21 I think the average guess is around he measures. Anywhere between 5’10.75”-5’11.
One of my favorite actors 👍
Johno said on 10/Sep/21 Gyllenhaal is such a sport, open enough to be measured on national television. Saying that, he did appear to be over the 5'10 mark, somewhere like 5'10.25-5'10.5, the metal tape measure was angled slightly but then again his posture was pretty loose so he could of stood a bit better. There I can see him measured by Rob at 5'11 if he were to do so but that would be a morning height.
5'10.75 it is.
Stinky 186 cm said on 29/Aug/21 Jake Gyllenhaal is an amazing actor Love all of the (or at least most) stuff that he’s in and he’s about the same height as one of my best friends I’d say he’s a solid 5’ 11 1/4”
Jake said on 28/Jul/21 Looking at the video w/ Conan when the camera zooms in it appears that Jake’s eye level could be in the 5’6-5’6.5 range if you take into account the angle of the camera etc. So really 5’11.25 would probably be the very max he could pull off around afternoon. Would you agree, Rob?
he isn't standing measured height, but how much extra he could get under a stadiometer is debatable. Some guys can stand pretty well and be only a few mm off what they measure.
I think you could make a case for 5ft 11 flat, but 5ft 10.5 I cannot buy.
MaskDeMasque said on 11/Jun/21 Watched nightcrawler again tonight, great film. He's noticeably a bit shorter than Bill Paxton. Bill was 59 in the film so was prob around that 5'11-5'11.25 mark by then. 5'10.5-5'10.75 range for Jake.
Slim 6'1.5 said on 1/Jun/21 Ledger would’ve edged him by at least 1.5 inches
ItsOverAnakinIhaveTheHeightGround said on 26/May/21 Conan said 5'11 when Conan measured him here, Click Here, but from this direct camera shot he was slightly below 5'11.
Considering the fact the show was probably in the afternoon, I'd say max 5'11 1/4 for Jake, and 5'10 1/2 min. Give or take a quarter inch.
Its a very flexible height range to convincingly pull off playing either 6 footers or smaller 5'10ish characters.
viper said on 9/May/21 5-10.5 MAX
Could be just 5-10 1/4
6ft6 said on 7/May/21 5'10 3/4

OriginalAnon said on 14/Mar/21 Carlospe the woman says "I learned on celebheights" haha that's amazing. I am sure Rob must already know but I love how she mentioned. I bet a lot of these people come on here.
yeah she mentioned it 3 times 👍
carlospe said on 5/Mar/21 Rob he is 5'10 and I have the proof. He was measured on TV: Click Here
MaskDeMasque said on 25/Feb/21 @slim 6'1
I see more than a three inch difference there. I see around 3.25 maybe 3.5. Which puts Jake at 5'10.5 maybe 5'10.75.
JohnnyBravo said on 23/Feb/21 5’10” flat, the rest is hair.
Persian Soldier 183 said on 15/Feb/21 He must be less than 6 , the measuring in the show was the worst height measuring i have ever seen
Genau said on 30/Jan/21 flat 5ft11
slim 6'1 said on 28/Jan/21 Just a solid 5’11”, the quarter inch is unnecessary
slim 6'1 said on 9/Jan/21 Solid 5’11”next to 188cm listed Ryan Reynolds: Click Here
Canson said on 2/Jan/21 @Alex: did you grow? I remember you were listed 6’3.25 before?
Alex-6'4" said on 1/Jan/21 He is 5'10.5 on the dot. the fact that he claims 6ft+ is sad
ALEXIZ/180cm said on 25/Dec/20 178 cm max or 5'10.
OriginalAnon said on 22/Dec/20 I clocked him at around 179/180 cm
viper said on 22/Dec/20 Jake is 5-10.5
5'11 to 6'0 guy said on 22/Dec/20 He looks nearly the same height as 5'9-5'9.5 listed Jared Leto. Either Jared Leto is around 5'10 or Jake is around 5'10.5.

A Very Happy Fortieth Birthday to Jake Gyllenhaal! 😄🍻🎈
His Birthday Guess is a slither over 5ft11, which is the same as I saw for him on the Birthday page.
Slim 6'1" said on 19/Dec/20 Just the flat 5’11” is better
Mimi said on 19/Dec/20 🎂🎉Greetings to Jake on his 40th year on earth. I still can't believe 1980 is 40 years ago.
Jake, Liam Hemsworth, Jared Leto all standing next to each other.
Slim 6'1" said on 9/Dec/20 Solid 5’11”
Pat m said on 27/Nov/20 I think he's 5'11 first thing in the morning and he's actually a 5'10.5 kinda guy, he looks two inches shorter than Ryan gosling
Slim 6'1" said on 17/Nov/20 179 is lowballing him but 180 is spot on
Moon Goodman said on 14/Nov/20 He is 5'10.5
Guest66 said on 7/Nov/20 Weirdly enough he looks a lot taller than Scott MacDonald in that particular scene, surely over 1in of a suggested height difference. I think some serious footwear advantage came into the play or maybe even standing on the top of a box lol.
the boots the squad wore weren't huge, but he certainly stood like he was being measured.
TheBat said on 2/Nov/20 With 5'10.5" listed Billy Magnussen (to his left).
Would be interesting if Jake ever agreed to a stadiometer measurement and did a military posture stance
Andrea said on 23/Oct/20 Rob, I'm sure you've already seen it, but look at him with Bill Paxton: Click Here Of course the ground is not ideal, but if anything Jake has the advantage (in the first part), given that it generally slopes towards the street... Yet he still looks clearly shorter. By how much is the question, but I doubt it was as low as 1/4 inch (and Bill looked nearer 5'11 flat with you!).
I know your thoughts about Conan's "measurement", but even based on that, I still wouldn't rule out 5'10.5-5'11 to be honest (all you can tell is that he's likely somewhere near 5'11).
If you see him with other measured guys such as 6'2 (probably more 187 at his low) Stephen Curry Click Here , 6'2 5/8 Von Miller Click Here and 6'7 Harrison Barnes Click Here (or Ryan Reynolds Click Here ), I certainly wouldn't say it's impossible. Even Conan can look over 5 inches taller (albeit in probably more footwear) at the end of the clip Click Here !
5ft 11 is a fair guess for Jake, many give him that mark on this page. Some give him 46 guesses of 5ft 9.25 though, but I still let them post 😆
Slim 6'1" said on 3/Oct/20 Flat 5’11” 180cm
Slim 6'1" said on 30/Sep/20 Add to marvel universe,
Jake Gyllenhaal's height said on 29/Sep/20 180 is his highest !
if you put jimmy fallon 181.6cm in your site
this photo show that there 2cm difference between them Click Here
he dont even look like 5'11 🤣
Many people have estimated him right on 5ft 11, I think the worst I'd believe he measures on a stadiometer is that mark.
Jake Gyllenhaal's height said on 28/Sep/20 i dont understand how you put Jake Gyllenhaal's Height 181cm in your site ?
you are wrong
Jake Gyllenhaal's height clear in this photo : Click Here
You spammed this about 20 times on youtube too...
Even on the video in which the first 30 seconds offers a counter-example: CLick Here
I'm 5ft 8, yet with right camera angle you can make it look I'm barely over 5ft 6 against a tape.
Slim 6'1" said on 27/Sep/20 Flat 5’11”
George nano said on 15/Sep/20 I’d say 5’10.5 is his lowest and 5’11.25 (181 cm) at his highest. ( maybe 5’11.5 181.5 cm at his highest possibly) but yet again I’d say say he can still claim 5’11
Bora said on 14/Sep/20 Well he's not shorter than 5'10" for sure.
Kebapsever said on 6/Sep/20 I don’t think he measures under 5’11. So 5’11.25 is a good guess.
George nano said on 2/Sep/20 I’d say decent 5’11 maybe a little over, those people who say on the comments that he is 5’9 is laughable. I can’t take those comments seriously and 5’9 is a total BS!
LogicalLB said on 18/Aug/20 In the movie Velvet Buzzsaw there is a scene where Jake is standing facing Zawe Ashton (who is 5'10), and he's barely an inch taller with shoes on. So I would say 5'10.5, maybe 5'11 peak in the morning.
viper said on 8/Aug/20 Reynolds is 186-187
Slim 6'1" said on 6/Aug/20 Flat 5’11”. 188-189 Reynolds definitely proves it
Slim 6'1" said on 3/Aug/20 184 ledger puts him at 180
John Bricker said on 2/Aug/20 5”10 1/2 again. Very common height
Jkiller said on 1/Jul/20 A decent 5'11 (180.5cm)
Joseph177 said on 27/Jun/20 He might very well be 180-181 cm. His body proportion is not great and often makes him appear 177-179 by himself. When he is with other actors he does look 5'11+. Short legs can make anyone look shorter than they are.
viper said on 26/Jun/20 5-10.5 Max imo
Shayz said on 21/Jun/20 Looked like 5.11 inc hair closer to 5.10 - 5.10.5

Matt29 said on 1/May/20 How is this still debatable?
At Click Here Conan's show in 2015 he was measured barefoot, in socks actually, (unless there are also elevator socks, which would a f***ed up thing) and he was clearly 5ft 10.5 to 6ft.
Have in mind that his legs were not straight and the show was probably filmed midday, it's safe to say that Jake is a legit 5ft 10.5 to 10.75 guy.
I think his posture is always bad so I could definitely see him as 6ft guy if he stands straight.
No way was he over 5'11" from what I could see, especially not at night.
Progking said on 17/Mar/20 Accurate listing, he could be 180.5-181 cm before bed, 182.5-183 morning, which i view as a tallish guy. In October Sky he seemed tallish and he could pass for 6'0
TheBat said on 4/Mar/20 5'11" flat, nothing below 5'10.75".
viper said on 3/Mar/20 I agree it's not a mystery.
He clearly looked 2 inches shorter than 6-0 John Mulaney on Saturday night live.
He's only 5-11 in shoes.
Jug said on 3/Mar/20 Probably 5'11.5 out of bed and 5'10 3/4 in the afternoon. So a weak 5'11. He's also clearly wearing elevator shoes in the above photo.
Macy C said on 2/Mar/20 Why is it such a mystery about how tall he is? He said it himself that he is 5'11".25. Why do we keep talking about it?
viper said on 1/Mar/20 He's 5-10
MD said on 1/Mar/20 He's on Saturday Night Live with John Mulaney, right now, and looks a good two inches shorter than 6'0" Mulaney.
c-mo 176.2cm said on 22/Feb/20 179cm imo
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Feb/20 I think Leo is closer to 5'11 1/4 a low more chance than Jake.
Nik Ashton said on 27/Jan/20 @ pacenik - I like your name!
It would be great to see a photograph of him with David Beckham!
pacenik said on 22/Jan/20 hello rob. have you seen his movie Donnie Darko? i mean i guess you have. the movie came out in 2001 when he was 21 but he was probably around 19 or 20 when it was filming. i wanted to ask you what do you think of his height in that movie? when i look at him now, he does look like he is 181cm tall. but in that movie he seemed a bit shorter. honestly he didn't look more than 5'10'' there. what are your thoughts? could he have grown an inch or so after that movie?
I have, but not for many years.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Jan/20 5'11 with a 5'10 proportion on Conan show.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/Jan/20 That was a bit on the rude side Jake! 😂😂😂! He asked a particularly short ageing male if he got picked on for being short! (David Fincher's 'Zodiac').
The little guy's reply was entirely justified!
Nath said on 16/Jan/20 Definitely 179.
Chinmay Singh said on 20/Dec/19 Jake is the only one who had height mystery case, people really took it seriously.i am happy about that 😁😂
Nik Ashton said on 19/Dec/19 At least he didn’t stick to his 6’0” claim!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Dec/19 🎂🎁🕯️🎉 Happy Birthday Jake! 🎉🕯️🎁🎂
Wishing Jake Gyllenhaal a Very Happy 39th Birthday today.
Sean william Winter said on 3/Dec/19 should placed a ruler on his head and measured more accurate.
DarkPower729 said on 25/Nov/19 He’s as 5’11” as they get. 181.6cm (5’11.5”) in the morning, 180cm (5’10.9”) at night, 180.7cm (5’11.1”) afternoon. He’s SUPER 5’11” 😂😂😂
TheBat said on 22/Nov/19 5'11" flat is not impossible. 5'10.75" is probably his low.
Chaits chaser said on 13/Nov/19 Click Here
Look at the video at the timestamp 3:12
It looks 5'9".3/4 to me
Jake should be 177 cms. He is a solid 5'10"
Keith 5'10 said on 11/Nov/19 Look this picture Rob. Thoughts? Click Here
He looked taller than Aaron...maybe the ground is slightly in Jake's favour?
Logan M Barringer said on 26/Oct/19 @ Rob he isn't a tough one since there seems to be so many measurements and good photos of him. Wouldn't put him under 5'10 or over 5'11". Based on the pick with Von Miller I'm gonna say 5'10" and 3/4ths out of bed with 5'10" and 1/4th going to bed. Gyllenhaal is about as average as you get.
viper said on 22/Oct/19 Von Miller is 6-2.25-6-2 3/8
Remember it's a morning measurement
Jake is 5-10.25-5-10.5
Pretty much what he measured on Conan.
Johan 185 cm said on 21/Oct/19 Josue said on 26/Sep/19
@Rob, I think Jake falls just under 5'11". He looks 4 inches shorter than NFL player Von Miller listed as 6'2" 5/8.
Thats max 3.5 inch difference with a guy who is 6'2 5/8. 5'11" flat at worst.
viper said on 20/Oct/19 5-10.5 would be a better listing
Nath said on 17/Oct/19 Looks 5'10 3/4 around 180-181.
Josue said on 1/Oct/19 5'10 3/4 for Jake. Click Here
MD said on 27/Sep/19 Yes, he is definitely somewhere in between 5'10" and 5'11", but certainly not over 5'11" as currently listed. That much has been clear for some time, I think.
Josue said on 26/Sep/19 @Rob, I think Jake falls just under 5'11". He looks 4 inches shorter than NFL player Von Miller listed as 6'2" 5/8. Click Here Click Here
He could be anywhere from 3 to 4 inches smaller there, would be harder to imagine him nearer 5ft 10 withi Von
ADAM VARCO said on 25/Sep/19 He seems closer to 6 feet tall than he does to 5'11"
Ian555 said on 24/Sep/19 Rob are tape measurements really that accurate? Because I asked my dad to measure me to see if I've grown anymore. Last time I was measured was visiting the doctor and they said I was 6' 3" barefoot. But when my dad measured me, I stood up straight and tall not leaning against the wall like when Jake Gyllenhaal was measured, and he said I was only 6' 2 1/2". Then I asked him to measure me against the wall which he did and he said I was 6' 3 1/2". He then measured me one more time against the wall and then he said I was only 6' 2 ish. And I stood up straight all of those times.
Most retractable tape measures I've encountered are very accurate. However, some might become damaged...fabric/cotton style tapes are trickier to measure height with than a metal type tape measure.
Arthur! said on 14/Sep/19 Rob I see 2 inches here... Don't you? Click Here
Keep in mind Conan's show is being recorded earlier in the day. Jake might be only 5'11.
Could be 4cm range there.
Random pal said on 9/Sep/19 Hey Rob, Gyllenhaal was measured at the Conan show and he was exactly 5 ft 10 in, or 70 inches (1,78 meters) Click Here
5 ft 10 / 1,78 m, just average.
I did mention in a response Video a couple of years ago that it's tricky with a tape slightly in front of somebody - it might be making them look shorter than they actually are.
Guest66 said on 8/Sep/19 @Greg, Go and watch Rob's video take on that measurement and you will understand that person can look significantly shorter standing next to the tape like that. Conan clearly said five eleven, was he playing a nice guy and gave Jake a little extra or was he just brutally honest about Jake's height you will never know. I believe that Jake is roughly a 180cm guy, hard to see him below that, so probably 5'10.75" at worst.
Abel Patrick said on 4/Sep/19 5-10 (178-179cm)no more
Tall Sam said on 20/Aug/19 Wonder if he or or Leonardo DiCaprio would edge the other, I think Jake might have a marginal edge but I'm not sure.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 19/Aug/19 He's on Ellen right now! He looks very tall and handsome! 😁
Guest66 said on 18/Aug/19 Yes Greg, he’s EXACTLY as tall as YOU are, wakes up at 5’11” flat, and goes down to 5’10.25” lol, gtfo. There’s also no such thing as a legit 5’11” guy on this website, they’re all weak 5’11” and strong 5’10” right ??
Redwing said on 15/Aug/19 Hey rob does this picture show their real height difference? Is that 4.5 inches?
viper said on 2/Aug/19 Absolute, absolute most I could give him is 5-10.5
Johan 185 cm said on 1/Aug/19 No way under 5'11", got measured in socks on a show at his low and people still think he is as low as 5'10"? The tape was closer to the camera, ofc its not as accurate as a proper measurement but quite clear that he is more 5'11" than say 5'10" or 6'.
viper said on 23/Jul/19 He can look as short as 5-9 in movies.
Think he's 5-10
berta said on 23/Jul/19 viper, reynolds cant really be only 185 cm because i dont think Hugh jackman is only 182,5-83 today
181.2cm at 16 said on 20/Jul/19 Rob what is his eye level
One thing about him appearing on Conan is that the tape measure was showing his eyelevel somewhere in 5f6 range
Laws said on 19/Jul/19 Saw him with Ryan Seacrest today, only 2" taller than RS ... 5'9
viper said on 19/Jul/19 Jake is a measured 5-10
Just more evidence Ryan Reynolds is 6-1
berta said on 18/Jul/19 180 cm flat
crayon said on 9/Jul/19 If Jake is 5.11 barefoot then Ryan Reynolds has to b at least 6.1ft1/2 barefoot but in Hollywood I would guess celebs usually claim the 'dress shoe height' which means 6ft for Jake and 6.2ft1/2 or 6.3ft. This is quite obvious when viewing their recent movie together and red-carpet photos
Johan 185 cm said on 3/Jul/19 theL4st said on 10/May/19
rob whats happening here Click Here around 1:00 when they all stand up jake looks 2-3 inches smaller than kimmel.
Pause at 1.14 when they are talking, barely anything in it. As a sidenote what kind of heels is that she is wearing??? Talk about breaking your neck those most give over 5 inches of height.
TheBat said on 30/Jun/19 @pov
Agreed. A lot of people claim their shoe height and claim that, but it's understandable why lots of guys do that. I usually claim my barefoot height which is 5'10.5" but at times I'll claim 5'10" or 5'11".
pov said on 28/Jun/19 I literally think he's in the same situation as me. I'm 182cm measured barefoot which is techincally not 6 foot (5'11.75). But in shoes I range from 184-185cm depending on what I'm wearing. I claim to be 6 foot and no one really questions me. He is most likely a solid 6 foot in shoes too. Lets not forget, most guys get measured in their shoes, so most guys claim to be an inch taller. I understand why he claims 6 foot, as I do too.
shantanu said on 27/Jun/19 perfect 5'11.25
MaskDeMasque said on 22/Jun/19 5'11 or just under.
jack mortin said on 4/Jun/19 It is less than 5'10 Click Here
Sonnecker said on 4/Jun/19 I saw the Jimmy Kimmel video with the new Spider-Man's cast, and Jake was always more far from camera than Jimmy. If you look carefully when they're close, they're about the same height. 181 cm is spot on.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Jun/19 Jimmy Kimmel were not taller than Jake.
179cm guy said on 29/May/19 He would be edged out by guys like DiCaprio, Jimmy Kimmel, Eddie Redmayne... 5'11 is what I'd guess Jake at.
Kole said on 19/May/19 5'11.5 I'm 5'9!!!!
theL4st said on 10/May/19 rob whats happening here Click Here around 1:00 when they all stand up jake looks 2-3 inches smaller than kimmel.
A chance Jimmy is nearer 5ft 11.5 than jake ever hitting that mark.
179cm guy said on 30/Apr/19 @TheBat He would probably get edged out by DiCaprio though. He's more 5'11.25-11.5 range while Jake's probably 5'11-11.25.
TheBat said on 16/Apr/19 People saying Jake's under 5'11" on average clearly didn't read his measurements correctly when he was on Conan's show. He can totally have 5'11.25" from me.
Guest66 said on 11/Apr/19 I wish you could meet him in person Rob, to settle once and for all if he appears anything under 5’11” or not.
179cm guy said on 22/Mar/19 @Editor Rob Then what about a 5'11 1/8 listing for Jake? It definitely seems to be more likely than 5'11 3/8 or 5'10 7/8....
That is a figure he potentially might measure, I'd still say better odds than 10.75.
179cm guy said on 21/Mar/19 @Editor Rob So does that mean that you'll give him a quarter inch downgrade to 5'11 flat? 180-180.5 is the range in between B and D which was the minimum and max that you'd guess him at. I personally can't see him edging out someone like Ralph Fiennes.
Overall I still feel he has a chance of measuring a little over 5ft11 than a little under it.
179cm guy said on 20/Mar/19 Rob, which zone would you drop Jake in?
D is I think probably the highest and B the lowest.
If you stand some people on the spot, then ask to measure them, the variation can be small or even half inch.
billionaireslayer said on 20/Mar/19 5'10 to very strong 5'9 guy, yes they rounded up for him on Conan. Him and John Stamos would be close in height, with Jake barley edging him out and I think Dicaprio would edge Jake out by about half to 1 inch.
HeightMythsBreaker said on 18/Mar/19 @Editor Rob, I think I have the proof that Jake's height has been quite overestimated. Click Here
HeightMythsBreaker said on 18/Mar/19 I'd go for 5'9.5.
Jake was measured exactly 5'10.5 by Conor O'Brien on TV even though the latter politely rounded up to 5'11. The problem is that the measuring tape was already severely bended.
He stands slightly shorter than his girlfriend Jeanne Cadieu who is 5'10 (178cm). Click Here
179cm guy said on 5/Mar/19 Rob in the past you've said in regards to Jake's height that "I think arguing more than 181 is hard." and "Standing tall I can't see this man under 5ft 11." If that is that case would you say that the 5'11-5'11.25 range is suitable for him? I personally think that he's 5'11 minimum and 181cm max.
Measuring 5ft 11.5 at 10am isn't out of the question or very close, but he might fall down to 181 by afternoon - that's what I'd go with.
viper said on 3/Mar/19 5-10 at best
Kayle said on 3/Mar/19 A weak 5'11 or strong 5'10.
Anything below 5'10 is laughable... can't take those comments seriously.
Bobby 5'10 (178cm) said on 1/Mar/19 @amysticalspork
That's the tallest looking weak 5'10 that I've seen. He's not that short. He's definitely taller than that. Look at his proportions. He's easily a 5'11 guy.
according to that pic hes a typical weak 5'10 strong 5'9.. no more no less ... not sure where 5'11 is coming from
Yang (5ft 8 Chinese men) said on 2/Feb/19 He is 5footer 10.
5'11 gui said on 30/Dec/18 Honestly I dont understand why they didn't just use a god damn stadiometer. All that money and preparation and you dont think to get one? Smh.
Johnnie said on 28/Dec/18 Ehm, rob, take a look: Click Here
here’s jake Gyllenhaal photographed in Paris with his new girlfriend, belgian model Jeannie cadeu, who seems to edge him a bit. They are at best the same height with very similar footwear.
And surprise surprise
Her official listing is 178 cm, by a models’ agency..
Let us all do our maths.
Logan Barringer said on 25/Dec/18 @Rob he actually got measured on Conan and your site was mentioned. Barefoot and with his comb backed hair he was around 6'0". However the measuring was a little poor. I think without the hair they said hed be around 5'11". Based on the poor measuring 5'11" would be his max bare foot and bald. 5'10" would be minimum and that would be going to bed. I'd go with 5'10" 1/2. About as average sized as a gut can get.
avery_t said on 2/Nov/18 I'm pretty sure I just passed him in TriBeCa. He was wearing sunglasses. If that was him,
he's 5' 10" at 4PM. I'm 5' 7" on a good day, and he wasn't 4 inches taller than I am. He was three inches taller.
Shawnee said on 22/Oct/18 Are all these listings on this site w/o shoes? Or with shoes on?
For any listing, it should be assumed without shoes on.
Kev said on 12/Oct/18 5'10 and a half. But I still think he's 5'11
Tomwash3r3 said on 11/Oct/18 @Avradeep Sarkar To be fair, the tape measure was closer to the camera, so the tape measure in front of the camera is going to read below his actual height. While I'm convinced he is below 5'11, I doubt that it is by any more than a full inch. Try measuring your own height then try to measure your height by putting a tape measure in front of you in front of a mirror. I tried it myself and the tape measure did read me to be shorter than my actual height when I put it in fron of a mirror, so I'm sure he's definitely above 5'10. I just doubt he's at least 5'11.
Tomwash3r3 said on 11/Oct/18 @Editor Rob , I really think you should down grade Jake to below 5'11, just 5'11, or at least to something below 5'11 1/4. Here he is with Ryan Reynalds whom you listed at a weak 6'2, Click Here and I fail to see how it is less than 3 inches between them, and they both appear to be wearing similar footwear. Even though the tape measure read less then even 5'10, when Conan measured him, I'm sure he is definitely over 5'10, considering the tape measure was closer to the camera, but I'm really not seeing anything above 5'11 in that picture. So what do you think Rob? Or do you think that Ryan needs an upgrade? One or the other, because there is no way the difference in height is less than 3 inches.
From all I've seen of them about 3 inches difference looks more likely than say 3.5-4 range.
Ruben Bosco said on 24/Sep/18 Strong 5 ft 11 no more
NATO said on 20/Sep/18 5'11 is his height
Avradeep Sarkar said on 30/Aug/18 In conan's show I noticed carefully he was measured 5'9" but conan told 5'11"
mal said on 20/Aug/18 He's obviously in 5'11 range. people should prob stop being so insecure on this site
Rick1 said on 19/Aug/18 So he was measured live on TV (And i would say he was measured quite badly/hastily as the tape was away from him so it might of been more if it was closer) as 5'11 and people are saying he is not even 5'10....
He gets 5'11.25 so this is correct.
Lynx said on 15/Aug/18 Tom Hardy is 5'9 , he clearly has 2 inches over him and probably a little bit more, and Tom is a strong 5'9, so no way Jake is under 5'11 lol.
viper said on 12/Aug/18 I've watched that video a few times.
He's no taller than 5-10
under6'1 said on 10/Aug/18 I've paused the vid where conan is measuring his height and he's flattening his hair, at exactly 3:13.
He honestly doesn't even clear 5'10. Looks5'9 3/4 if you go by where his fingers flatten his hair. nowhere near 5'11
shantanu 186 said on 3/Aug/18 looks 181-182 sometimes.
Man in Black said on 23/Jul/18 A weak 5'10" in thick soles.
Rourke said on 12/Jul/18 Happily 5’11 max more like ahaha
Canson said on 9/Jul/18 @Junior: 6’3 7/8 is far too high for Conan. That would make him look an honest 6’4” which he never does. Hence why he inflates so many people like Selleck Neeson Klitschko etc. 6’4/6’4.5 is in shoes which would make him 6’3-6’3.5 barefoot
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Jul/18 @Lawson Jake is not 6" shorter than Conan. That clip look at most 5" and Conan is not over 6'4 most probably 6'3 7/8 figure at his low. Jake is 5'11-5'11 1/4.
berta said on 25/Jun/18 i think dicaprio is taller than jake. dicaprio looks in the strong 181 range 181-181,5 and a guy lika jake looks to be 180-180,5
MAD SAM said on 20/Jun/18 Unfortunately he didn’t hold up well against 188 cm Ryan Reynolds at LIFE premiers, gonna give him 180.5 cm
MAD SAM said on 20/Jun/18 Unfortunately he didn’t hold up well against 188 cm Ryan Reynolds at LIFE premiers, gonna give him 180.5 cm
Leno179 said on 12/Jun/18 It is impossible for this guy to be anywhere below 5'11, anyone calling him short or below average is crazy, even 5'10 is far for true. Jake is a legit tallish guy, with a above average height at 5'11.5 inches, not a giant, but a good sized dude.
Bane said on 10/Jun/18 Anything below a strong 5'11" is BS. I'm sure his 5'11.5" claim was honest and he probably wakes up just a tad over 6 foot
Arun said on 22/May/18 Anywhere between 5'9.5" and 5'10.25"... I don't see him ever being any more than that...
Seen him in so many films... Always looks 5'10"... Watching nocturnal animals now and in the scenes with Aaron Taylor Johnson, Jake looks shorter than him...
JoeJoe said on 18/May/18 I’ve met the guy. He was wearing thick Nike air style sneakers. He has a huge head but a sort of teenager body. Looked nothing over 178 to me. I was actually shocked at how short he was compared to what I thought he would be. I’m 185 and felt like I towered him which is rarely the case when I meet legit 5’11 guys
Joah said on 13/May/18 Good actor but sorry hes not tall dont buy any more than 510.5.
He rarely looks over average taking into account all the sub 510 actors.
He likely never sees 511 without hair even in am.
alex24 said on 6/May/18 179.5cm end of the day and 182.5cm at the begining
SHANTANU185 said on 29/Apr/18 he looked 182 in donnie darko
Isaac Hamilton said on 21/Apr/18 Solid 5"11 guy.
Ali183 said on 18/Apr/18 Just 180cm
FE said on 18/Apr/18 @Editor Rob,
maybe 9.75-inch head?
He's got a fairly long head than average either way.
9.75 at most I'd have said.
FE said on 17/Apr/18 @Editor Rob,
BTW, what do u think his head size is?
Most of the people say that he has a huge head, even Jake himself admitted that he has a huge head in one of his interviews lol.
I reckon close to 10 inches.
I think 9.5 range is possible, but I'm not so sure about 10, I don't think he has a 5-inch eyelevel.
FE said on 16/Apr/18 @Editor Rob,
Jake's characters from Enemy(2013) has "183cm" in his Bio. Click Here
Seems like Jake undoubtedly knows that, but the 160lbs is optimistic tho.
What's your thought on this Rob?
I think arguing more than 181 is hard...but since he did admit 5ft 11.5, I'm sure he got measured one time around that, maybe it was 10am at the Doctor's.
Coconut2000 said on 9/Apr/18 Im sure jake was honest with 5'11.5. he probably wakes up a bit over 6 foot
Thunderfin said on 1/Apr/18 Danimal said on 25/Mar/18
Between 5'11" and 5'11.5" in the late afternoon (when the Conan Show is taped). Could wake up at 6'0".
That's just an insult to real 5'11er's. If you saw my photos, there's way more than a .5 inch difference between him and Gosling. Time for you to get some new glasses buddy.
Canson said on 28/Mar/18 Agree with Viper
Danimal said on 25/Mar/18 Between 5'11" and 5'11.5" in the late afternoon (when the Conan Show is taped). Could wake up at 6'0".
viper said on 25/Mar/18 He's 5-10 max
Malcolm said on 24/Mar/18 I think that he is honest with 5'11.5, 5'10 range is bs. he probably wakes up a little over 6 feet
berta said on 9/Mar/18 i think he is excactly 180 cm its 9 cm beetween him and ryan reynolds
Dmeyer said on 24/Feb/18 180,5-181cm makes sens since he was very close to my height in person
Thunderfin said on 22/Feb/18 Not sure if this has been posted before, but this doesn't make any sense.
Either Gyllenhaal is max 5'11 flat (Google lists him as 1.8m and that's likely not an underestimation) / a strong 5'10 during the day, or Ryan Gosling is around 6'1.
Pierric said on 21/Feb/18 Around 71 inches Click Here
Jack said on 7/Feb/18 He is just 5'11
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 16/Jan/18 Average guess has him, just 180cm.
The Shredder said on 16/Jan/18 I honestly wouldn't rule out 5'11.5 , He looked 6'0 with hair and he had his head tilted when Conan read 5'11.
Jack said on 8/Jan/18 Rob, is 5'10.75 possible?
standing tall I can't see this man under 5ft 11.
The Shredder said on 4/Jan/18 He looks at least 3.5 over Steven Yeun.
Anonymous said on 3/Jan/18 181.8 cm in the morning.
179.8 cm in the evening.
Ricky said on 2/Jan/18 @Greg
He had a lose posture when Conan measured him.
He was measured at 70.5 inches which is 5'10.5" but you just see his feet were spread,he wasn't in the military posture.
If he would have stood straight,he would have been a bit over 71 inches which means a bit over 5'11".
He is 5'11¾" out of bed and at an average I'll say he's 5'11.5" for sure.
GARY said on 28/Dec/17 Dont think Jake is under 5ft11 or 180cm, He might measure 5ft11- 5ft11.25 evening time but cant see him being as low as 178cm, Great actor though whatever his height
rofl said on 27/Dec/17 he's 5'11. A good height for an actor. We all want a 6'1/6'2 guy playing Batman, but Jake is the best actor considered for the role.
Faza said on 27/Dec/17 Depends maybe some people wont care enough to even know morning and afternoon height differs some people could easily claim 1 inch taller but not be telling a lie some lie of course but the fact that jake was willing to be measured on tv tells me he really thought he was 6ft
Canson said on 26/Dec/17 @Bobby: I think you get disoriented when it comes to height. If you are 6’0” out of bed you won’t be 5’11.5 midday. You lose half inch in usually 2-3 no more than maybe 4 hours.
Guest66 said on 25/Dec/17 @Bobby, Calling your morning height is not exactly honest though, even if he wakes up at 6ft he is not walking around throughout the day at 6ft. It’s almost like calling your height in shoes.
Anonymous said on 23/Dec/17 rob he was shorter then 181cm paxotn so jake got to be 179cm
Bobby said on 21/Dec/17 With a listing of 5'11.25, he'd wake up at exactly 6ft tall, or even a hair over. So, he wasn't being dishonest when he said he was 6ft tall. 5'11.5 is possibly a midday measurement, and I can see that for him.
I'm sure if Jake busted a gut he'd clear 5ft 11, if he raised his eyelevel up an inch and measured himself out of bed, may even be surprised with a 6ft and 1/8th measurement.
Grit said on 19/Dec/17 He is a strong 5'11", I don't believe anything below that
Jake should be cut a little slack...performances nerves account for about 1cm difference, I'm sure he wakes up at almost 6 feet.
Opie said on 17/Dec/17 Hey Rob, I can wake up at 5'11 1/2 but at night I can sink as low as 5'10 7/8. I feel like Jake is the same way.
BTW, If I were a celebrity, what do you suppose my average listing would be based on that info?
5ft 11 maybe, but then it depends on what you looked with others...
you have to watch actors being sneaky at times claiming very specific figures, but it's like a double bluff or a shoe height.
Guest66 said on 12/Dec/17 Nah, a legit Batman can’t be only 5’11, let alone anything shorter. Batman is a big guy, Bale had hard times playing one as everyone around him was either same size with him or bigger. Affleck has the size but no charisma of Batman imo.
Alex said on 12/Dec/17 Hi Rob , he's the real life boston marathon survivor who lost his legs , I'd post the picture but not sure, just look up Jeff Bauman and Jake Gyllenhaal, I'd be appreciative if you took a look , thank you.
he can seem 4-5 inches shorter than Jake - I'm not sure if he has set prosthetics that were all the same, or if another set was a bit longer.
grizz said on 7/Dec/17 SD-5'8(172CM), what about RDJ and Tom Hardy? Tony Stark is 6'1 225lbs in the comics. However, his on-paper imposing figure was never mentioned or highlighted in the comics so physique for playing his part is not so high on the priority list. For playing Bane, however, it is.
And I never found Hardy's portrayal of Bane convincing. The more the time passes I found it funnier (especially that voice).
Come on,seriously, a friend of mine is 5'9 200 lbs and I never considered him big . And I live in a country where people are on average 2 inches taller than in the US. People would be laughing at Hardy in a Bane costume walking down my city. Let alone in Split where every third guy is over 190 cms&100 kg.
Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson is the living embodiment of comic-book Bane and he's got solid acting skills. He should play him if DCEU survives long enough.
SD-5'8(172CM) said on 1/Dec/17 As a comic book fan,I have a policy for playing BATMAN(Bruce Wayne) or Superman(Clark Kent)...a white guy whose 6'0 or taller has dark hair and a square jaw...Jake fits the bill but if he was 2 inches taller he'd fit the bill perfectly...Ever since 2011(New 52)Batman has gotten leaner and to a certain degree shorter in the comic books and some of the animated films Click Here cause there was a time he was WWE superstar BIG!!!However he's gotten bigger and more muscular on the silver screen.
Jake would be perfect as Dick Grayson being Batman...
Greg said on 22/Nov/17
@grizz 5'11 isn't small what the hell? I agree if I woke up tomorrow and I was 5'11,I'd do back flips...grizz said on 25/Nov/17
@Greg,for playing Batman he is. And don't talk to me about previous short actors playing Batman, I barely considered their versions as a genuine threat for Gotham criminals. Affleck and Bale were the first Batmans who looked and acted the part PLEASE REMEMBER TOM HARDY and ROBERT DOWNEY JR...Film is a creative process...

Jeremy said on 22/Nov/17 He was a very muscular stocky build so he can come off as 5’9-5’10 but thats no where near his actually height. I’d say 180-181 at worst. Probably 181-182. He’s DEFINITELY taller than Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon who both look 180. He looks what he claims
grizz said on 22/Nov/17 Rumor has it that he will be the new Batman.
I am probably the only guy who is angry because for the umpteenth time Batman will be played by a small guy.
Bobby said on 21/Nov/17 Solid 5'11, he looked tall on Zodiac, so I thought, no way this guy measures in the strong 5'10 category, he gave a taller impression than that. A chance of being 5'11.5 midday.
Animus said on 21/Nov/17 He can definitely look 5'11½ on occassion. With poor posture he can look barely 5'11. Like DiCaprio he he can look anywhere from a weak 180cm to a weak 182cm. 181cm is a good listing for Gyllenhaal.
Liam said on 21/Nov/17 I can't see anything below 5'11", the 181 listing is good but nothing lower
Anonymous said on 20/Nov/17 ~Solid 5ft 11 at midday
Canson said on 17/Nov/17 @Anonymous: doesn’t surprise me. Conan also inflates everyone else he has on his show. And thinks he himself is taller than life like saying he can’t fit into a 7 series bmw that he was in once
Anonymous said on 16/Nov/17 If u watch him being measured on Conan u can plainly see Conan added height. If u pause the footage Jake is clearly 5’9 3/4 in socks. So fairly average height.
Tamberlain said on 16/Nov/17 Can't really give him over 5'10.5".
In premiere photos with Anne Hathaway, he consistently looks 2" taller. Which is 3.5" taller, accounting for footwear differences.
Hathaway's 5'7", so, do the math.
Klapperschlangensindgeil21 said on 12/Nov/17 I definitely think he could hit very close to 6 ft. in the morning if he stood straight. On Conan he was measured late at night without even standing straight at all and he still hit 5 ft. 11 in. bang on, and yes, he was barefoot.
Ricky said on 9/Nov/17 He is 5'11½" for sure.
He got measured at 5'11" at night,during measurement he didn't stand straight and had open feet.
Morning height can possibly be 5'11¾"
FE said on 28/Oct/17 Legit 181 guy, Can't understand the 5'10" estimates other comments keep guessing at?
an anonymous peach said on 26/Oct/17 Rob, who do you think would have the edge, DiCaprio or Gyllenhaal?
tough one to call...
NickNate said on 21/Oct/17 @Allan and @Anonymous
Why would you make assumptions on a picture of him by himself? I'd understand if you were making a broad generalization but 5'10 vs. 5'11? You can't tell that kind of difference on a picture of a guy by himself. Waaay too many variables can make a guy look taller/shorter, notably his proportions and the angle of the shot. I've seen guys "look 5'10" in pictures and when they were actually stocky 6'1 guys. Guys with small faces relative to their frame and/or longer legs will look taller.
Allan said on 13/Oct/17 @Joe Joe.Yeah, honestly I don't see him being 5ft11 on this picture either. He looks more like in the (strong)5ft10 range to me. A 5ft11 guy in dress shoes should look taller than he currently looks here IMO.

Joe joe said on 11/Oct/17 I saw him today in London. He has pretty thick trainers on and looked about 178cm to me. Really didn't come across as 180cm
sumdude said on 1/Oct/17 I assume his appearance on Conan was at night? Like 7-8 or 9 pm? So probably like 11-12 hours into his day, assuming he woke up at like 7-8-9 in the morning.
So his height on Conan was most likely his absolute lowest. Anyways, a measurement with your eyes and tape measure ontop of that is awful and very inaccurate. Probably touches 181.5cm or so 7 hours into his day.

jd4540 said on 15/Sep/17 My buddy (solid 6-footer) wrote the screenplay for Stronger. Based on their FB pics together, Jake is a solid 5'11"...as a side note debating quarter/half inches is pushing it. Sorta like debating 5-10 pounds on someone who weighs 200 pounds, low yield
Del Mar said on 13/Sep/17 Is 5'11 1/2" out of the question Rob?
early in the day he is bound to measure it, but it may well be a breakfast height.
