How tall is James Gunn

James Gunn's Height

6ft 0 (182.9 cm)

American director and writer, known for Guardians of the Galaxy, Super and Slither. In the past he claimed 6'1", although in recent years said "I'm a little over six feet tall." and "The Gunn brothers don’t all claim to be six feet. I am six feet, my brother is not. I will be publicly measured, no problem."

I’m over 6′. People often think I’m small because I’m pictures next to giants like [Chris Pratt] & [Dave Bautista]
Djimon's one of the nicest guys around. He's a big guy, over 6'2, and is used to being the biggest guy on set - like he was on Gladiator and other films. He was shocked early on when he shared a car to dinner with Dave Bautista and Chris Pratt who are both enormous and said he felt 'tiny.' Actors are generally small people - I'm six feet tall and am used to being taller than almost all of the actors I'm directing. But on this film all of our primary actors (with the exception of Michael Rooker) were over 6'1 - Chris, Dave, Lee Pace, Djimon, John C Reilly, Benicio Del Toro, Peter Serafinowicz - it was pretty incredible.
I wish actors (especially men) would tell the truth about their height when casting. Casting a whole show can be a balance of a lot of things, including heights, & easily 50% of the time male actors exaggerate how tall they are, sometimes by a lot, on their resumes.

Rob which one is more likely in your opinion for James Gunn 5'11.75-6'0 or 6'0-6'0.25
Editor Rob
In last few years he's been appearing more weak 6ft than he did 10 years ago. I don't discount the idea he has lost a small fraction.

Looks under 6'0 with Batista and Djimon Hounsou.

Agree with the slight downgrade. He's not a solid 6'0 guy.
Savagetez said on 5/Jun/22
Looks 5'11.75 but no more considering he 3 inches shorter than Batista.

He is max 6'0 next to Pratt and Batista

Doesn't really look 6'0 1/8 to me, he usually looks a good 2 inches shorter than Chris Pratt (who is not 6'2)
I would say 5'11 3/4 or a weak 6'0.

He looks 5'11.5 range to 6ft.

Rob how much do you think his hair gives him?
Editor Rob
I think Gunn has a 2 inch hairstyle with Judy. There was about 2 inch footwear advantage for Judy I believe, click here

Probably doesnt drop below 6'0 at his low and throughout the day is a strong 6'0, or as high as 184 cm.

🍀🎈🎁🎂 Happy Birthday James! 🎂🎁🎈🍀

A Very Happy Birthday to James Gunn, who celebrates his 54th today.

A little over 6ft, so he might as well have 6ft and 3/8ths. It's his Birthday!

He's honest and Rob thinks so too, it's a good job! 😡!

Should take him up on his offer and measure him publicly. I can see why Bautista would make him feel small but Chris Pratt?
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Mar/19
He didn't look like he can be 6'0 1/8 at his low. I might be wrong given him 5'11 3/4 as the lowest. He can be just a few mm under 6'0 and most of the time he look roughly like a 6'0 guy.

5'10" next to Chris pratt

James Gunn finally gets a page ! Rob I always thought Gunn is kinda 182 cm so I will go with 5’11.625”
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Sep/18
Gunn visit the doctor at 9-10am measure out 6'0 1/8th is more likely to think about it. 5'11 3/4 before bed. Lee Pace really look about 4" on him.
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Aug/18
The penny has finally dropped! James directed 'Super' and other similar heroic movies!
Nik said on 29/Aug/18
He had better be what he says, and what Rob says - Or 😡! 6'0.125"!

@Anonim, see for yourself: Click Here The difference is quite noticeable.
Kinda surprising he's one of the very cases where Google actually underlists his height.
Editor Rob
At times he can look sub 6ft, but his posture I think is bad at times. With Rooker I think he can look his claim.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 28/Aug/18
If Lee Pace is listed 6'3.75" then i wouldn't go above 5'11 7/8 for Gunn.

"People often think I’m small because I’m pictures next to giants like [Chris Pratt] & [Dave Bautista]"

I'm in a confusion with this expression. Is the difference of 6-7 cm so noticeable? Really?
Editor Rob
Sometimes even 2 inches can seem a lot, especially if the other person has a much more robust and intimidating physique - the impression they have is some folk thinking the Rock is 6ft 5.
Sandy Cowell said on 26/Aug/18
He seems a nice friendly man! Love the picture! 🤣

Six foot and an eighth!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Aug/18
At least 6ft was my guess. Probably one of those guys who initially thought he was 6ft1 then got measured just over 6ft.

He'd get away with claiming 6ft1 at this height though
Kevin said on 25/Aug/18
honest guy

Currently the hottest name in Disney/MCU.
One wouldn't have thought that, but indeed, next to 187 and 190 cm guys a legit 6 footer doesn't look much.
