In this video (Click Here) Corden appears to be no taller than John Bradley (also see 5:50) who we know is 5'8" because Rob has a picture with him (Click Here).

So I think the listing here is bang on. He's definitely shorter than 5'9", but he's 5'8" at a minimum.

But James Corden looks shorter than Rob compared to Samuel Anderson. Click Here =here James tiptoeing next to Samuel in a poor posture.
Click Here = here Rob not particularly straight next to Samuel in a good posture(rob had onlyy a fraction more heels)
Click Here = i think Rob has a poorer posture than John Bradley,but looks always taller than him.Then i think 5"8' is a little bit generous for John,i would say more 5"7'.James Corden like 5"7.5'

Looked 2-2.5 inches shorter Than Jake Gylenhaal so if he’s under 5’8 jakes definitely under 5’11.
Leko said on 28/Jun/19
5'9 looks ok to me. 5'8 too low for him
cmillzz said on 15/May/19
@Mike5
5’8-5’10 is the average range.

As for Corden’s height, I think he has a much better chance of measuring the full 5’8 than Wahlberg.
Nik said on 5/May/19
It's incredible that he claimed to be 5'11"!
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/May/19
Average guess was too low. Corden is at least 5'8.

@Pierre

1. JAMES CORDEN IS BAREFOOT and JUSTIN BIEBER IS WEARING DRESS SHOES. Which gives Bieber and added 1.5 inch
Click Here

2. James Corden looks exact height if not a little taller than Bieber in some angles

3. He is clearly around 173cm as he isn't wearing shoes and matches Justin Bieber in dress shoes.

He looks at least a solid inch shorter than Kanye and Walburg who are legit 5'8

Got at least an inch on Justin Bieber 173cm seems about right! Close to that 174cm
Mike Jones said on 29/Dec/18
5'8"? Impossible. Walhberg is a legit 5'8" and this guy is at least an inch or more shorter.

Considering footwear and posture, I doubt James is any shorter than Rob next to Samuel Anderson. 5'8"-5'8.25" makes sense.

(And i think James is standing a little bit straighter as Rob next to Samuel)

Imo James Corden looks shorter than Rob next to Samuel Anderson = Click Here = in this pic Rob had only 0.25 more heel than him,Samuel looking upward with his head.Now James Corden a little bit on tiptoe next to Samuel Anderson who looks a little bit downward with his head this time = Click Here see him around 5"7' by this comparison
Nik said on 19/Sep/18
@ Mike5 - James may be slightly below average but he is knocking on the door of average very loudly! He could arguably be "low average"!

@ Nik no mate, he’s below average, British average height for men changes but is generally 5’9-5’10 range

@Declan McLean

Actually I think Rob said the average height for male celebs is 5'11 compared to 5'5 for females, so the industry favors taller men.

But it might've changed; that was 1100 celebs ago.
Editor Rob
I hadn't checked it, but this moment

Average Male is 5ft 10.9, Female is 5ft 5.3

For people I have photo with it's now:

Male 5ft 10.3, Female 5ft 6.2

Look at the picture in web"James Corden and Samuel Anderson premiere of History Boy".And compare with the picture Rob/Samuel Anderson = Samuel Anderson next to Rob is standing straighter than next to James.James is on tiptoe and don't look taller than Rob next to Samuel.

I think the David Beckham and Gwyneth Paltrow clips confirm that he needs a slight upgrade. Might not be a full 175cm, but he's clearly over 174cm. Should be listed as 5'8 3/4 (or 5'8 1/2 at the very least).

Amazing...

In my Experience ethnic Brits are pretty short people, considering they are located in northern Europe. Dutch , Germans and Danes, other scandinavians and Baltic states have people that are far far taller than Brits, big difference, and the difference between British women and women from other countries in North Europe is even larger..
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 3/Dec/17
@Soije

5'5" and 5'8" is a pretty big difference. The former's considered short while the latter's considered just below average. 5'5" is especially short for a pro athlete, maybe that's another reason why Jose was called short.
Soije said on 1/Dec/17
Recently Jose Altuve, at 5'6", was made fun of for being as short as the kids from Strangers in a group photo (he was actually visibly taller). Nothing was said of Corden even though he was barely taller than the kids as well when they were guests on his show not that long after.
Johnson said on 24/Nov/17
@Rob that book where it says Corden 5'11 did he really claim himself that figure?? Or it was that the agency wanted to list him at that they type 5'11? Perhaps Corden has no idea that a book lists him 5'11
Editor Rob: it's the major casting directory so not some random book. This is what casting director's would use and it cost money to get into the directory.
shredder said on 14/Oct/17
Rob , what would you guess his weight? I have read 175 lbs for him.
Editor Rob: I don't know if he's lost any, but in the past he could look 250-275 range a lot.
Johno said on 13/Oct/17
Looked slightly taller than Usher recently on his show and also within 2-inches on Luke Evans height at the same sing-off.

I suspect he wakes up around 5'8.25

Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Oct/17
Damon honestly doesn't look more than an inch taller than Corden to me. I think Matt could be 5'9.5" and have claimed 5'10.5" as a shoe height, but Matt was also claiming just 5'10" when he did Invictus.

@Anonymous: Rob lists Kurt at 5'9.25" and I tend to agree as he was clearly taller than Mel Gibson in Tequila Sunrise and also looked to me like he edged out Andy Garcia in The Mean Season, but he's also fond of cowboy boots and looks to be wearing them there while Corden's footwear may even be an inch less or at least 2 cm less. So you could consider Kurt more of a 5'10" man when he's wearing cowboy boots compared to someone in sneakers or dress shoes.

Lulz at Corden for claiming to be 5'9" and Matt Damon for claiming to be 5'10.5".

Their claims are consistent with one another, but inconsistent with real life encounters. As I've learned over the years the rule of 3 applies, especially when it comes to males. Whatever is claimed, generally subtract 2-3 inches from said claim. Matt is 5'8" and Corden is 5'6.5".

Rob I think you can be a little taller than him. What do you think?
Editor Rob: sometimes I think he can pull off 5ft 8.5, but I would say there is a good chance we would measure very close.

5'8" seems right overall. Seeing them together twice, I'm pretty sure James is shorter than Mario Lopez, who I don't see any taller than 5'8.5". I don't think Damon is taller than 5'9.5", but Corden can oddly make Damon seem a flat 5'9", and I really don't think Damon is shorter than 176 cm either. Strange, does anyone know what Corden claims?

Super unnecessary upgrade

Even Bieber can look taller than him

He looks same height as Paltrow and Paltrow same height as Pitt.
So the 3 of them can be 5'11"...or 5'8"...

This site correlation theory is messed up.
Rob?

You might notice Corden going through late puberity as he meets more and more A-listers. 5'8 tops.
Johnson said on 6/Feb/17
@Rob you list Paltrow 5'9 and Corden 5'8. Don't you think honestly that they look like 1 cm maximum of difference between them and not an entire inch? He deserves an upgrade

I became interested in his height purely because Cara Delevigne claimed to be taller than him and David Franco in a rap battle. Cara seems to be 5''7 maybe even 5'6.5 and so for her to make such a claim she couldn't have had a more than two inch difference , she was wearing heels though so she might've just meant In the moment.

MD said on 10/Feb/16
He had on 5'9" Charlie Puth a few nights ago doing a kind of rare stand-up interview where they stand by the bar. For whatever reason, I can't find any photos of the episode, but Puth clearly looked more than an inch taller. James was in his dress shoes, though I'm not sure what Puth was in. With what he was wearing, I imagine it was flat gym/tennis shoes/sneakers, but I guess it could have been heeled boots. Anyway find any photos or video showing his footwear? Anyway, it was more than an inch not knowing the footwear of both.
sfs324 said on 2/Feb/16
Interestingly many people here think Orlando is more of a 5'9.5 which would give some weight to Corden being more like 5'7 than 5'8. I think it's worthwhile paying more attention this height especially now that he's pictured with higher profile celebrities.
Johno said on 1/Feb/16
Orlando Bloom is more a 5'9.75
MD said on 1/Feb/16
@Rob,

I think this is one of those ones you might really need to rethink, one of the one's that really stick out as an overlisitng. Here he is with 5'10.5" Orlando Bloom:

Click Here

This probably isn't even among the better photos for evidence below the listing, but it seems really clear from all of the evidence posted here on an other pages, that a flat 5'8" is really just too tall.
Editor Rob: he is a burly kind of guy whose posture at times might make him look shorter, but generally I've thought near 5ft 8 was fair for him.
Johno said on 23/Jan/16
A bit shorter then 5'8. He is of similar height to Gary Barlow who in turn is shorter then the 5'7.75 listed Peter Andre. He can be as low as 5'7, possibly 5'7.5 and a genuine 5'7-ranger.

That scene with the height chart is odd.

Matthew Baynton is 5'10" so it odd he was happy being shown as being about 5'6", but it must have been a production decision to make the characters seem more vulnerable. You wonder if he is happy with the result.

Corden is taller than the height shown.

This listing seems way off. Here he is with David Beckham:

In this picture he is 455 px tall, compared to Beckham at 482 px. If Beckham is 180 cm, that makes Corden 169,9 cm or a weak 5'7

Rob,

I'm not sure he's this taller. Here he is with Dominic Cooper (who probably needs to be brought down half-and-inch, himself):

Click Here

Click Here

Click Here

I wish they were standing straighter, but it looks to me that there has to be two inches. Dominic is likely a flat 5'9" and James a flat 5'7" give or take a quarter-inch for either of them in either direction.
[Editor Rob: I'd struggle to see james only 5ft 7, I wouldn't argue that low.]
Joe said on 9/Jan/15
@Rob, so what you saying? The chart is a lie. Actors always want to boost their height so i doubt it'd be wrong.
[Editor Rob: yes, I believe it was attached to the wall at the wrong height. I think if you look at him with many other people he looks a lot nearer to 5ft 8 than 5ft 5 :) ]
Ed82 said on 5/Jan/15
I just saw Into the Woods. He seemed just an inch taller than Emily Blunt, who is 5-7, so 5-8 is a good listing.

Glad to see he got an upgrade. He never looked as low as 5 ft 7. In Gavin and Stacey in fact he can look 5'9"-10.

he always used to rib Mathew Horne for being small which is a bit rich seeing as he's barely 5'7 himself.

That said proportionally he does look short here and looks 5'6"-5'7"!
Shaun said on 25/Aug/12
5 ft 7 always seemed too low for him. I watched Gavin and Stacey and he seemed pretty much average height, although his costar said he was measured at 5'6.5" or something. He always seemed 5'9"-5'10" to me, maybe its because of his significant girth he appeared bigger.
JaDo said on 12/Jun/12
seems fair. was shorter than 175-177cm Dominick Cooper in suit and similar shoes. 5´8 bare feet seems to be a good fit. looks shorter some times and sometimes even 5´8.5, never looked a full 175cm though. so yeah, 173 is spot on for now.

Tall man and even in mature years looks to have lost little height. My guess would have been 6'3''.
