How tall is Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal's Height

5ft 11 ¼ (181 cm)

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 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 in the 5ft 11 range. My thoughts on that measurement.

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.
Editor Rob
Could be 4cm range there.
Greg said on 13/Sep/19
Also I want to add there’s photos of Jake with 5’10 listed Tom sturridge where he looks taller than jake. I’ve also seen a 5’9 listing for Tom, let’s assume Tom is more 5’11 range that would make Jake around 5’10 range probably 5’10.5”.
Greg said on 10/Sep/19
@Random Pal it’s not accurate when you place a tape next to your head like that. I’m around 5’10.5” and sometimes it can feel like I’m either below 5’10 or above 5’11 when measuring that way, I hope Rob meets Jake and takes a photo with him one day to end the mystery once and for all. However I would take away at least an inch from his 5’11.5” claim which sounds like an “in shoe” measurement 👍.
Greg said on 10/Sep/19
@Guest66 I’ve seen that video at least a thousand times and I know he wasn’t as short as they measured him, not taking account for the camera angle tape measure error, However I believe Rob over listed him. I’m sure he’d be 5’10.75” at some point of the day but definitely not at his low. I’ve seen many photos of him standing with celebrities, he gets edged out by 5’11.75” listed 50 cent by over an inch, Looked 5’10.5 next to him. He gets edged out by Jimmy Kimmel who’s listed as 5’11.25”, but if you say “ok Jimmy is wearing lifts fine but still take over the advantage and you see there’s like an inch between them. I saw the tape and paused the video for when Jake turned his head directly aligned to the tape, not the side ways position, his eye level was roughly 5’6 or a shade below, so he’s definitely in that 5’10-5’11 range. But when I say that I mean in between not 5’11 range but not as low as a flat 5’10 ( my opinion) Conan said he’s getting a closer to 5’11 than 6’0 and when he said 5’11 he rounded him a bit. I’m not just downgrading Jake I’m presenting factual evidence. He also got edged out by 5’11.5 listed Bill Paxton by like an inch or so. I would say 5’10.5” is a better listing.
Editor Rob
If Jake ever does a con in the UK, I will ask him if he wants a proper measurement 😄
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.
Editor Rob
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.
Greg said on 5/Sep/19
@Abel Patrick I think 5’10.5 would be a good listing for him I would shave off at least 1/4th to 1/2 inch inch off the current one.
Abel Patrick said on 4/Sep/19
5-10 (178-179cm)no more
Greg said on 26/Aug/19
@Leonardo would easily Edge Jake. 5’11.25 listed Kimmel edged jake with same footwear I doubt he was wearing lifts and even if that was the case Jake didn’t look under 5’10 range with him plus if Kimmels not even 5’11 like 5’10.5-5’10.75 like some people here believe he is that’s bad news for Jake. Not even trying to downgrade I legit don’t see him this listed height.
Greg said on 26/Aug/19
@Guest66 I’m just making an educated guess, you sound really butthurt, change your tampon will ya 😂👍? He doesn’t appear a legit 5’11 guy to me besides ihe was measured under 5’11 on Conan. Plus many others in the comments here agree with him at least I’m not guessing him as low as 5’9. He wouldn’t measure up to actual 5’11 guys like Leonardo Dicaprio, or Peak Ian Mckellen, Rowan Atkinson or Benedict Cumberbatch. Rob just gave Jake the benefit of the doubt because it wasn’t a proper measurement. It would be a different story if Rob met him and Had a photo with him. There’s plenty of 5’11 guys and 5’10 weak/strong whatever. Educate yourself. “ boo hop hurr sure” that’s how stupid you sound crying right now.
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?

Click Here
Editor Rob
Probably near 4 inches that moment
Greg said on 6/Aug/19
@Johan well that wasn’t a proper measurement just an approximate, however if there’s one thing I learned from that segment on Conan is that putting a measurement to the side of your head is not a proper way to do it. I have a friend who’s like 5’9.25 maybe a shade more and he can seem near 5’11 or 5’10.5 by doing that I am 5’10.5ish and if I put the tape near my head I could seem near 6’0. That being said I just can see Jake as anything over a weak 5’11, he’s more a strong 5’10/Weak 5’11 than legit 5’11. 5’9 is obviously trolling and I don’t see him as 5’10 flat either.

@Berta yeah Reynolds is a legit 6’2, Jackman was. Peak 6’2 probably 6’1.25-6’1.5 now or so.
Greg said on 6/Aug/19
@Viper honestly agreed with you he seems like a 5’11 out of bed and 5’10.5 by afternoon sort of guy.
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

Rob what is his eye level
Editor Rob
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
Greg said on 6/Jul/19
@Pov you’re likely taller than Jake I cant see Jake as a full 5’11 in the afternoon. He’s been edged out by Fallon, Kimmel and a few others he’s likely claiming 5’11.5 in shoes and is probably a bit under 5’11.

@TheBat I do the same thing I used to claim 5’10 but back then I thought I was like 5’9.5, then remeasured myself and am like 5’10.5 in the noon so I claim 5’10/5’11 or almost 5’11.

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

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.

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

Editor Rob
A chance Jimmy is nearer 5ft 11.5 than jake ever hitting that mark.
Greg said on 4/May/19
@TheBat that measurement was wonky on Conan but I think jake wakes up at 5’11ish and is down to 5’10.25-5’10.5” by bed time.
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.
Greg said on 23/Mar/19
I give Jake 5’10.5.
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....
Editor Rob
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.
Editor Rob
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?

A) 179/179.5
B) 179.5/180
C) 180/180.5
D) 180.5/181
E) 181/181.5
Editor Rob
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.
Editor Rob
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

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.

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.
Greg said on 26/Nov/18
@Avery_t how legit is your assessment? You actually walked by him he was measured under 5’11 on the Conan O’brien Show he’s probably 5’10.25-5’10.5” at a low.
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?
Editor Rob
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.
Editor Rob
From all I've seen of them about 3 inches difference looks more likely than say 3.5-4 range.

He's 5'10, but 5'11 if you include his hair.

5'10 people can be easily mistaken as 5'11 since that's kind of the tallish range. I'm 5'10 but people think I'm 5'11 because I don't slouch like most people and I also have thick hair. Jake Gyllenhaal definitely looks 5'11!

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.

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.

@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.

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...

I think he is like 179-180cm, Probably a weak 5’11, not a legit one.

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.

9.75 at most I'd have said.

@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.
Editor Rob
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.

@Editor Rob,

Jake's characters from Enemy(2013) has "183cm" in his Bio.

Seems like Jake undoubtedly knows that, but the 160lbs is optimistic tho.

What's your thought on this Rob?
Editor 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.

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.

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.

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?
Editor Rob: standing tall I can't see this man under 5ft 11.

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

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.
Greg said on 1/Jan/18
I'm just not seeing him being a strong 5'11, he was clearly under 5'11 when he was measured on Conan I would give him 5'10.5
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.
Editor Rob: 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
Editor Rob: 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?
Editor Rob: 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.
Editor Rob: 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.
Alex said on 5/Dec/17
Hi Rob I have an interesting question for you , Jake plays Jeff Bauman in the movie Stronger and I was wondering how tall Jeff was before the bombing and how tall he is now with his new legs , he's substantially shorter than Jake today but he has long arms which leads me to think that Jeff lost considerable height as he has shorter legs now than what he was born with.
Editor Rob: I'm unfamiliar with who Jeff is sorry.
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,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...

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.

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.

@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.

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.

My buddy (solid 6-footer) wrote the screenplay for Stronger. Based on their FB pics together, Jake is a solid 5'11" a side note debating quarter/half inches is pushing it. Sorta like debating 5-10 pounds on someone who weighs 200 pounds, low yield

Never looked that tall to me. Substantially under 6 ft. After seeing that Conan video I'd say 5'10.5.

Two more things you find out from that video: a) Conan is not 6'4". Even if Gyllenhaal was that full 5'11", there's not a 5 inch difference between them, especially considering Jake was not wearing shoes and Conan was. b) Andy Richter is the same height as Gyllenhaal. So they are both below 6 ft.

I guess this is a nice image to figure that he's at least 1.80 m. I think that his figure works against him in this matter. Whilst leaner bodies tend to look taller, his more 'buffed' wide torso makes him look shorter. Before Conan I though he was shorter, like a 1.75-178 range.

That was not an atual measurement and that is many camera tricks, shaky going on. If you take another look he can even look 5'9.5 to 5'11 range and if they really given a real measurement they would have bring out a stadiometer and use a flat plate push down his hair to prove the world jake is 5'11.5 as he claim but sorry that he look nothing near it. At most 5'10.5 or even 5'10 flat would be his true barefoot height and if you're real 5'10 guy you should know how a 5'10 apear to look. Jake is too short looking for 5'11.25 thus beside his buff hair and he is wear thick socks in that clip some thick socks can boost near a fraction cm.

Canson never said that 195 was 6'4". He was saying that Conan's 193-194 in shoes not 195, implying that he's 191 barefoot, not as tall as barefoot legit 6'4" guys. I'm sure Canson knows how to convert, since he often tells people his height in both ft/in and cm.

Good find. I have images standing next to 5'8 family members and the difference is definitely not as great as between Ryan and Jake. There is 4-4.5" difference between them and blows a 5'11 listing for Jake out of the water (Assuming Ryan is 6'2).

It's kind of easy to know his height from the Conan video. At around 3:17, the camera switched from Conan holding 5'11 on the tape measure, to a front facing shot where the tape measure is at least 1" above Jake's head. I will give him 5'9.75" as a conservative height and 5'10.25" as a liberal estimate.

Click Here If you've got the stomach to watch this skit, you can see Jake is clearly shorter than Jimmy Fallon. I might've been even generous with my 5'11 estimate.

Rob, what would you consider to be his lowest?
Editor Rob: standing tall for a measurement I can't see him under 5ft 11.

Jake Gyllenhaal & Maggie Gyllenhaal kinda remind me of my younger sister and I.I'm 173cm (5'8)while my sister is 168(5'6.75),but she could appear taller due to the fact she has more variety as far as footwear and hairstyles go!!!
Jake is more conventionally attractive he's not too tall more of tallish (5'11/181cm)as far as male height goes and when he's clean shaven and lean he can pass for a younger character.When he grows some facial hair and adds a few pounds of muscle...INSTANT SUPERHERO/LEADING MAN OR ACTION STAR!!1

i think a guy like dicaprio is 1 cm taller than gyllenhall.i think he could be barely 181 ore maybe just litel over 180. but 181 is fair. but that is max what he is

I don't care about that ridiculous Conan measurement.
Watching him in Southpaw, he was roughly one inch shorter than 5'11.75 50 Cent. 5'11 guy, nothing more.

Check out Nightcrawler. His character has poor posture but still seems quite considerably shorter than Paxton in every scene together.

Conan didn't crush Gyllenhall's hair. His hair wasn't completely flat, that big hair gave him a great advantadge of 2 cm. He didn't look as tall as 5' 11" by any means. He looks 5' 9.5" but has his legs widely open losing some height. So he is 5' 10" at night and 5'11" in the morning.

He could be listed as both 5' 10" (night height) or 5' 10.5" (afternoon height). 5' 10.5" would be a good listing I think.

That Conan measurement video is deceiving, as the camera's angles and position of the tape give the false image. Rob himself made a video where he stood next to tape that way and looked almost under 5'7" while he is a strong 5'8". So yeah it did not solve the "mystery", but obviously Jake is very close to that 5'11" mark, could be a fraction over or under it. Maybe ultimately just a 5'11" can be the best shout.
