How can Jake be over 5'11 if ledger is 6'0½ so jake must be 5'10½ 5'10"¾
5'11james said on 4/Sep/23
180.2cm is a perfect average guess for Gyllenhaal.. that's what he most likely is in the afternoon (180-180.2cm). Same as me.
said on 31/Aug/23
Could you see him at a peak of 5ft 11½in, Rob?
I doubt Jake has lost any height. The current listing is probably the highest I could argue.
Abdul 5'10 said on 27/Aug/23
Jake: 1.84 m - 1.85 m
said on 26/Aug/23
Yeah - that was the range I pegged him at around too, I think that'd be a solid listing. A page would be great, good character actor.
Also, there are several pictures of him with Spike Lee (looks a solid 6 inches taller) and Gwyneth Paltrow too. They're very good ones to go off.
Beside Paltrow, yeah he seemed a good 5ft 11er.
Jake: 1.84 m - 1.85 m
said on 25/Aug/23
Can you please add a page for his Rendition co-star Omar Metwally?
Good character actor, has appeared in many shows including Mr Robot etc.
He looks tallish - could he be 5ft 11- 6ft range? Similar to Gyllenhaal etc and maybe a bit less than 6ft 1 listed Gavin Hood. Plenty of good premiere pics to go off.
Would really appreciate your thoughts, think he'd be a great add. He's done a lot of stuff.
From having a look at him, 181cm might be possible.
Henners said on 7/Jun/23
Jake is 5ft10 178cm barefoot there is not a possible chance he could make it 182cm in footwear 181.5 at best

He’s 5’11 max. I still think he’s 5’10.75.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/23
I think 181cm is still an ok figure for Jake. I doubt he goes below 5ft11. Straight out of bed could hit 6ft on the dot
Alex Schoenberger said on 24/Apr/23
Y’all jakes about 5 11.35 if I had to guess he was measure at night and still looked over 5 11 in my opinion rob has it almost perfect slight upgrade
said on 21/Apr/23
Seeing him next to Reynolds
You think it's fair to say that Jake's within the 180-180.5 cm range instead of 181 since Reynolds is a legit 188 cm
I'll wager in that
Jake is a flat/weakish 5'11 guy (180-180.5 cm)
Ryan is a flat/solidish 6'2 guy (188-188.5 cm)
5ft 11 and 6ft 2 does seem the most arguable figures.
Height Analyzer 2 said on 15/Apr/23
I do believe he's height twins with someone like Jake Paul, so a flat 5'11 is fair. He probably wakes up in the low 182 range, falls to about 180.5ish during the afternoon, and is no shorter than 179.5 by the evening (assuming a long day of work) - his normal low would be 180. So if he's 182 right out of bed and 180 by the end of the day, 180 or 181 is fair. I'd probably lean closer to the former, but with perfect posture (which Gyllenhall admittedly doesn't have), the latter is probably his true height. Keep the listing as is, or downgrade slightly to 5'11. Anything below 5'11 is absurd
Rockaway said on 13/Apr/23
Has a large head that makes him look shorter. I’d personally have him listed at 5’11 flat.

berta said on 26/Feb/23
yeah beside ryan reynolds he could look almost 4 inches shorter in some shoots but overal i think just over 3 inches is the real difference. 188,5 or 189 ojn a good day vs 180-181. Probably 188,5 vs 180,5 is the closest to the truth.
said on 17/Feb/23
Rob what do you think about his father Stephen Gyllenhaal? On imbd hsi height is listed as 6 ft. There are also a lot of photos of them together.
There is a chance at his peak he was around that mark.
said on 30/Dec/22
Look at this, do you think jake could be 5’11 3/4? In this pic of jake with Ryan Reynolds who’s an actual 6’2 and seems to be 2 and a half inches shorter than reynolds and Jake seems to be very very slightly leaning his head and Reynolds’s seems to have a normal straight posture.

Maybe he can claim 181cm with those measurements, but he'll be bested by the likes of Ben O'Toole.
QM6'1.5"QM said on 26/Nov/22
Reynolds is 6'1.75- 6'2" and Jake is 5'10.75- 5'11". He looks like this in "Donny Darko".
Remember Ryan has skull bigger than typical man or even man of 6'2" tall, plus huge hair.
Take a look on Matthew Fox and then on Ryan Reynolds ... it's def big difference in their head sizes.

I think he's a good 5'11 guy, but sometimes he looks only 5'10.5 because of posture and bad camera angles.
@Rob is it possible to downgrade him at 5'11 on the nose? He doesnt look 181cm quite often. He looked 1.5 inches shorter than 184cm Paul Dano here Click Here
, sometimes even 2 inches when he's slouching.
5'7 and a fraction said on 1/Oct/22
@Malcolm Oliver, I would go with latter. Gyllenhaal just doesn't hold up as a strong 180 like Leo.
179 - 180 range
Malcolm Oliver said on 28/Sep/22
Or I might be wrong and he matches Leo and edges Brad. Either or could be the case.
Malcolm Oliver said on 28/Sep/22
Nah, I don’t see Pitt edging him, in fact they are probably exactly the same. Maybe DiCaprio edges them out by a bit, but it’s hardly noticeable.
berta said on 29/Aug/22
i think 181 is overlisting him. He could be that height but tht is absolute max for him. Not many would agree but i think brad pitt could have a couple mm on him. I could see peak brad 180,5 and maybe lost 2-3 mm now and gyllenhalll flat 180 cm.

Jake looks about 3 inches smaller there. I agree with Robs listing of Pratt at 6'1.75 so that would make Jake about 5'11 or 5'10.75 at shortest

5'10". Poofy hair.
said on 9/Jul/22
Rob, I think Jake Gyllenhaal is a flat 5'11 guy (not a weak or solid 5'11). Will edge out weak 5'11 guys like Fassbender and Pitt. Sometimes, he can look like a solid 5'11 guy like your listing tho. What do you think
Well 5ft 11 is what a fair amount of visitors would (or have) guessed him.
said on 8/Jul/22
Is 182,5cm to 180,5-180,3cm a possible range?
I think I could argue 182 range to 180 after teatime...
I think putting Jake under a stadiometer at mid-day and asking him to stand tall would not result in a sub 5ft 11 measurement.
5'11 sunny said on 7/Jul/22
I had watched jake Gyllenhaal in late night show of conan brien. I think he was 5'10.5 on the tape. But he had not stood with legs properly that's why he lost almost an inch. Do you agree?

Nobody looses height naturally at 41 years old.

I doubt Jake has lost anything visible.

Again, I don't think DDL is 6'1". Regardless, even if you think Dano is 6'0.5", Gyllenhaal still doesn't look anything over 5'10.5" next to him.
Here's Dano next to 5'11.5" listed Cumberbatch, who I think is a flat 5'11":

That's because Dano isn't as tall as 6'0.5".
And the difference between Gyllenhaal and Dano isn't just 1.5"-2" as you say. There is a solid 2" between them.
I've watched that Conan video a few times back-to-back as well. He doesn't look over 5'10" there either. Tapes don't lie.

5’9 1/2” is too low for Jake. 50 Cent appears to be comfortably taller than 5’10” Mike Tyson, who Rob has met, and Jake looks only 1/2” of an inch shorter than 50. I think Jake Gyllenhaal is at least 5’11” based off of that comparison. The difference between them is only very slight.

Ok Im going to be really honest with you rob. In my opinion I think Jake Gyllenhaal is 5ft 9 1/2. Based on the photo with the tape measure. The tip of his head wasn't touching 5ft 11 or even 5ft 10. I disagree with you Rob about the angle. Moving on to lance armstrong, who is 5ft 9, and matthew Mc,who is 5ft 10 1/2. Jake looked slightly taller than armstrong and at least an inch taller than Mc.
Rowan182cm said on 19/Feb/22
Jake always looked average to slightly above average height to me. 180-181cm I'd say he's a solid 5'11
BoobleGooble said on 16/Feb/22
5'11 flat for Jake seems more likely
said on 9/Feb/22
@Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10'- here's another shot
Both screenshots are taken one after another. Guess the host hasn't moved the tape up or down. Even from this angle he looks close to tape-case. Exactly leveling with the hair. Now when he presses the hair in the same video his hands go down to 2cm.
In addition,I agree what Rob said about angles. But there's another kind of angles he didn't noticed. First the tape isn't straight. Second she's holding the tape at his toe while the guy measuring held the tape-case around his head!!? Do you think toe and head are aligned? Ideally the base of the tape should be held around his heels.
So there's atleast one factor ,the tape ain't straight will cancel 0.25inch. The second factor or toe-head alignment ,I don't know how much it will take but it definitely will cancel out reasonable amount from 5'11. Then at last the hair. By no means he looks onscreen 5'11. Though I might be wrong but this is what I observed. But in my opinion, 5'10 is 5'11 and even 5'9 is comparable.

@Mohammed well on paper, it's a very little difference, but when comparing height, especially when we compare ourself to other person beside us, 1 inch is a really noticable amount, in my opinion anything above 2 cm is noticable
Mohammed 170cm said on 4/Feb/22
@Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' - Jake is 180 (5ft11), that's not much over 5'10", its only an inch. Basic Math.

5'9.5 is a joke for Jake, he is easily as listed. Here some 6ft guy with Jake, and 5'11.25 listed Finn Jones, and 5'11.75 listed Dylan McDermott.
Jake actually looks tallest of them all.
Same 6ft guy here with 6ft listed Christian and 5'11.5 listed Isaac Hamstead.
I think Jake is somewhere between 182-183cm. Weak 6ft.
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 3/Feb/22
Rob also done measurement in similar shot with Jake and he's only 5'6,5 or 169 cm there,and we all knwo that ROb is a super legit 173 cm even regularly measured above that, so i think in stadiometer, Jake has a good chance to be much over 5'10, maybe even better than guys like Brad Pitt or Leo.

@scooby doo maybe that's not a good example because i'm failing to see your message here (Click Here

scooby doo said on 30/Jan/22
In my opinion I think Jake Gyllenhaal isn’t 5ft 11 1/4 to be honest I think he’s 5ft 9 1/2 based on the pic with Conan and the measuring tape. People say it’s the angle, in my opinion it isn’t the angle. Check him with lance Armstrong who’s 5ft 9 and Matthew Mcconoughey who’s 5ft 10 3/4 or 5ft 10 1/2. He’s slightly taller than lance Armstrong but maybe an inch shorter than Matthew. So 5ff 9 1/2 for Jake.
RohitM said on 20/Jan/22
Actually was the tape was bent too. Also what rob said in his video that the tape was close to camera. There was another shot with tape exactly above hair in the same video. So guess removing 0.5 for his hair he is in 5'10 range.

@Tall Sam yeah, but i would go with him being 5'11 flat, because he look noticably shorter than both Jimmy Kimmel and Fallon, tho they can look over 181 cm, but doesn't make Jake their height twin either. He maybe closer to Brad Pitt and Mcconaughey area

Funnily enough, Conan on his podcast with Jake praised him for his willingness to be measured. Probably holds his own with Di Caprio.

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.
Gyllenhaal 5'10.25-5'10.5 evening, ~5'11 morning
Fallon ~ 5'11
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.
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”
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.

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.

His Birthday Guess is a slither over 5ft11, which is the same as I saw for him on the Birthday page.

Just the flat 5’11” is better

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
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.
said on 2/Nov/20
With 5'10.5" listed Billy Magnussen (to his left).

@Solange I’m gonna guess 6’1 to spite you.
Solange said on 29/Oct/20
Calling bull$hi+ on 5’11”. I am 5’ tall and passed him at a restaurant in LA in ‘06. He is 5’8” tops. Maybe less!

Not a chance he is 5ft 9 3/4 at best... here is the vid.... look at the tape measure, he is nowhere near 5ft 11.
Time stamp 3.11 and you will see he is 5ft 9 3/4 used a program for CAD to find that.
The tape was closer to the camera, which can knock height from you.
He's taller than Scott MacDonald
who is over 5ft 10 flat himself.
Would be interesting if Jake ever agreed to a stadiometer measurement and did a military posture stance
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 😆

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
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 :
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
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

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

Rob how tall do you think Jimmy Chin(guy with the hat)
maybe 5ft 6 range

And Aaron has more footwaer.
Gianb92 said on 18/May/20
Now I think he is under 5'11.
Jam Cherry said on 10/May/20
180 cm at 5’11”
viper said on 2/May/20
Doesn't look any taller than 5-10 with
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.
VICTOR OGUAMANAM said on 5/Apr/20
Jake might be 5'11" or 5'11.25",but I'm not sure
Alex14226 said on 3/Apr/20
strong 5'10 can look 6 foot sometimes tho
viper said on 2/Apr/20
5-10.5 is the absolute most he can be.
I think he's just 5-10.
He didn't look any taller than that on a flat stage with 6-0 Mulaney
Adama777 said on 1/Apr/20
Definitely weak 5’11, he looks pretty short next to Hugh Jackman and others from the Prisoners cast
IGAU said on 31/Mar/20
the exact size of jack gyllenhaal is 5'11.
Kieran S said on 24/Mar/20
5'11 and a bit.
said on 22/Mar/20
If someone can find a better angle of this shot of him standing with John Mulaney at the end of the SNL episode they did fairly recently, that'd be great.
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
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.

@ pacenik - I like your name!
It would be great to see a photograph of him with David Beckham!
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!

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.
said on 13/Nov/19Click 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"
said on 11/Nov/19
Look this picture Rob. Thoughts?
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.
said on 1/Oct/19
5'10 3/4 for Jake.
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.
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.
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"
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.
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.
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
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 ??
said on 15/Aug/19
Hey rob does this picture show their real height difference? Is that 4.5 inches?
Probably near 4 inches that moment
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

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
said on 18/Mar/19
@Editor Rob, I think I have the proof that Jake's height has been quite overestimated.
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).
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.

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

Ehm, rob, take a look:
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.
