@Rob, how do you know how much McAvoy weighs, or are you just guessing?
Editor Rob: just an estimate, he is an actor who I think has probably maintained himself within a 10-12 pound range for most of his career.
Burak said on 25/Sep/17
A very strong 5'7
Julian said on 6/Sep/17
My personal favorite actor since Alan Rickman's passing. I've always seemed to like him even when I'm not crazy about all of his movies. Confident and honest, he really seems to leave a positive impression as an actor. McAvoy makes 5 foot 7 look great for a guy.

Looks over 5'7" tbh. He's just trying to be as honest as possible.
Lony said on 7/Jul/17
Hello Rob! What is your weight on July of 2017?
Editor Rob: 25 pounds heavier than James McAvoy, I'm still hovering around 179 pounds.
Grey said on 6/Jul/17
No, she is obvoisuly taller, anonheight
ana said on 6/Jul/17
at least he is really honest
anonheight said on 25/Jun/17
He and Jennifer Lawrence (seen here [ Click Here ] during X-Men a few years back) look about the same height.
RisingForce said on 28/May/17
Peter, for all we know, those guys could be weaker 5'7" range, though. In particular, I could see Kit 5'6.75". Sometimes wears some pretty good boots. Myers and Hamill have worse proportions. Hell, Jeremy Piven is taller than all of them and if you saw them standing by themselves, you'd probably think Piven was the shortest. Most I could give McAvoy is 5'7.25", I'm pretty certain Tom Cruise is taller. I wouldn't rule out an occasional lift, even if primarily for professional reasons. Christoph Waltz is an honest 170 cm I believe and can sometimes look like he measures taller. I think James is similar.
World Citizen said on 16/May/17
I think he looks more closer to 5 ft 7.25
delancey said on 13/May/17
Great example of an honest celeb who doesn't inflate his height. Solid actor and the way he holds himself he makes 5'7 look great.
Editor Rob: if McAvoy measured 5ft 7 and a cheese slice, you wouldn't be surprised...
tony t. said on 1/May/17
Similar height to Mark Ruffalo.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Apr/17
I didn't think he was this short in Last King of Scotland. Looked average enough
Shredder said on 17/Apr/17
I have known a few guys to round down. A cousin of mine claims 5'7 but I 'd bet big money that he is closer to 5'8. He edges out a 5'7.25.
Christian-196.8cm (6ft5.5)Noon said on 16/Apr/17
Legit 5ft7. I respect him for being honest. Most people in his postion would claim 5ft8 or 5ft9.
Peter175 said on 16/Apr/17
Arch and Rising, I'd bet my honor as a celebheights user that Mcavoy, when measured would come closer to 5'7.5 than just 5'7. He can easily look 5'7.5 and never appears 5'6 range. Guys who are actually 5'7 flat, like Kit Harington, Mike Myers, Mark Hamill, never give off more than a "below average range", James can look simply average. I don't think he's lifting, I think he's a genuine 5'7 1/3 inch guy with good posture, proportions and footware so he looks average
Arch Stanton said on 16/Apr/17
He's unusual though in that he's just 5 ft 7 but has a look and screen presence which somehow seems bigger at times. Only when you really look into it you can see he's this short.
RisingForce said on 16/Apr/17
He's 5'7" like he said. No more since he wouldn't have he's shorter than he is, but I doubt he could be much less either. You could argue he might not want to include a quarter inch and rounded, but once you get to 5'7.5", 9 times out of 10 people will say 5'8" if they round. He looks taller for the same reason Joaquin Phoenix, Jamie Foxx, Tom Hardy, Jude Law and Guy Pearce do. Men under 6 feet who are honest about it stand out, especially in Hollywood. And I also share Rob's suspicion that he sometimes has something in his shoes. Or when he doesn't, he does often have a bit thicker style shoe or boot.
Editor Rob: he's comfortable with saying 5ft 7, I'm sure many guys his height in Hollywood would be tempted to say 5ft 8 or 9, but he's a good example of a true 5ft 7 film actor, and he's had a pretty good career up to now.
Peter175 said on 14/Apr/17
Agreed. Rarely looks short as he's a strong 5'7 with good posture and sometimes thicker footwear.
Would have guessed nearer 5'8 from all the movies I've seen with him in it.
Ian said on 10/Apr/17
Strong 5'7" guy. Doesn't really look short, just a little below average.
Cameron said on 6/Apr/17
Definitely a solid 5'7". Never gave off a short impression to me.
berta said on 24/Mar/17
i just saw the movie split. i have not seen that many movies with this guy so cant say what i think his height is based on anything else but in the movie he looked like he could be a stron g170 guy, maybe 171? but i really dont know he is somewhere in this range but not shorter
Sandy Cowell said on 14/Feb/17
@ delancey - Hi! Thanks for the tip! Things like this are always very useful when rooting around on celebheights!
Now for Mr McAvoy: he seems like a really nice guy! He shouldn't feel bad about his 'pasty white skin' or his 5ft7 height, and I darn well hope he doesn't! It hasn't stopped him getting acting parts with some of the prettiest actresses showbiz has to offer!
He's a handsome lad!
delancey said on 11/Feb/17
Absolutely fantastic in his new film "Split". Have always been a fan but was really blown away by his performance, also a great movie!
This listing seems spot on Rob
HonestSlovene said on 24/Jan/17
He looks just about 5'7", no more no less.

roronoa said on 19/Nov/16
hmmm well its a well known fact that actors/actress usually lie about their height. so if james say he is 5 feet 7 inhces he may be around 5'6"or maybe 5"5 but not less than that.
slurkapfson said on 19/Nov/16
I actually met him, he looked a strong 5'7, I'm sure he's 171cm.
rockitbaby said on 3/Nov/16
James doesn't seem 3cm shorter than Tye Sheridan, who's apparently 1,73m. He's either taller or Sheridan isn't 5'8 at all.

josh jeffords said on 1/Nov/16
Just re watched wanted he held up ok with the innumerable amount of average over billers.
That movie is the tallest he ever looks I know of maybe 5 7 .5 but still a small man with excellent acting ability.
Most the time he looks barely 5 7 and under 140 lbs, or in xmen he looked out of shape and barely 5 7.
Give the guy credit never heard him pretend to be 5 10 seems a solid fellow.
Yes the king of 5 7 tom cruise looks taller at 5 7 .5 to 75
senu said on 2/Sep/16
Mat in the photo of him with danial radcliffe is 3 inches taller max and remember danial is a very short at 5'4".
mande2013 said on 27/Aug/16
I thought in Atonement he looked 5'7 exactly.
Perry said on 25/Aug/16
A strong 5 foot 7.

171 cm is probably his correct height. Look at him next to Jeremy Renner.

A few pictures came out with James and 5'7.5 Oscar Isaac not all the angles are good but this one shows a decent shot of James looking around a half inch less than Isaac.

Here's another photo showcasing footwear
Click Here

If you zoom in on the shoes James is wearing they look interesting to me! Seems like James has the footwear advantage!
Editor Rob: they look very close in height, I don't think their footwear is much different really.
Powerhouse said on 2/Aug/16
I think he could be rounding down, i could see him being 5'7.25 -5'7.5. He looks it with Radcliffee, Knightley, and some others. Though Fassbender makes him look 5'7 flat if Fassbender really is only 5'11. I think he deserves a quarter inch upgrade.
Editor Rob said on 5/Jul/16
If you watch this guy with Anne Hathaway in becoming jane you'd think he was at least 5ft 8 as he looked taller than her most of the film!
JarvisOS said on 2/Jul/16
Rob, do you think he will be closer to 5'6.75 at night(lowest)?
Editor Rob: he probably holds 5ft 7 most of the time through the day, maybe on a bad day could be a little under but I think he's an honest 5ft 7 guy. If he was a little fraction over, it wouldn't be a shock.
MoronDetector said on 23/Jun/16
@Sally, he was talking about Radcliffe being 5'3''/5'4'' you moron.
Mat said on 29/May/16
If he had claimed 5'8 I would have thought so. Would you Rob?
Editor Rob: if he said 5ft 7.5, I think most would probably think he was being honest, but he's went with 5ft 7 and I think he basically is an honest 5ft 7, certainly taller than a guy like Big G
MD said on 23/May/16
Not only that, but he appears to have a footwear advantage in both of those photos, particularly the second one.
Mat said on 20/May/16
Rob, how does he look near 4 inches taller than Radcliffe??Click Here
Click Here
Editor Rob: I wouldn't have said that was 4 inches, but in the 3 inch range. He can make radcliffe look near 5ft 4.
Sally said on 31/Mar/16
@Some Guy
He wears heels in the X-men movies but he is not 5'3, not even close. I stood next to him twice, both times he had shoes with a relatively thick sole but no additional lift and I can safely put him at a weak 5'7.
mande2013 said on 20/Feb/16
Looks 1m70 in Atonement. If you notice carefully, he's putting on elevators early in the film and has those on when he appears alongside Knightley in the 'garden' scenes in the first third.
BT said on 19/Jan/16
@Editor Rob: I know he wears thick footwear, but how likely would you say 5'7.25 or 5'7.5 is for him?
Editor Rob: always a chance of a little over 5ft 7.

I got this information from the film The Last King of Scotland where his character is given a Ugandan passport.
He looked 5'7 compared to a 6'2 300lbs Forest Whitaker and he was pretty skinny that's in 2006
Ten years later he has a lot more muscle mass but he is a SOLID 5'7(170CM)
Mat said on 2/Jan/16
Rob, is he wearing elevator shoes here? They look massive! At about 1:23 mark: Click Here
Editor Rob: they are some sort of boot, but it's hard to make out in the clip how much they could give. I've always though mcAvoy at times could be a guy who adds a little boost.
plus said on 31/Dec/15
I would bet that he is 171 cm... sometimes people is humble and say 5'7 instead to punctualizing with fractions 5'7.25 and so
Jay said on 4/Dec/15
Hey Rob, do You think Mcavoy would stand as tall as Tom Cruise in a barefeet comparison?
Editor Rob: no, I still think Cruise would edge him.

also at times I'm sure a guy like McAvoy has donned footwear with a little extra insole.
Paleman said on 1/Nov/15
Well, let's give James kudos for being straight with us. Mark Wahlberg stands only two centimeters taller than him and claims 5'10. Apparently it takes guts from guys to admit that they're 5'7 or shorter.

But yeah, 5'7 or maybe just a teenie weenie taller like 171 centimeters seems spot on. Definitely not above that. Why would he understate his height?
mande2013 said on 27/Oct/15
He looks three inches taller than Radcliffe here: Click Here

Closer to 5'7.5 perhaps?
MA said on 21/Jul/15
Are you sure his 5'7? he looks just average not shortish at all.
word1234 said on 13/May/15
Rob would you agree that let's say around 10pm that mcavoys height would be around 5'6 and 7/8ths
[Editor Rob: I don't think he'd drop much under, I'd put him in that legit/solid enough 5ft 7 range. At worst maybe a tad under 5ft 7 but McAvoy is certainly no 'Big G', a guy who would fall into 5ft 6.5 zone at worst.

I still wouldn't be surprised if in some films he has had a little extra in the footwear, not much but enough for a wee boost.]
mande2013 said on 10/May/15
Perhaps he's a weak 5'7, but I can't see him being anything less than 169 at night. He managed to look close to average in Filth.
Mc51295 said on 5/May/15
I'd say at night he barely scratches 170, probably around 11 pm he's in the 169.5 range maybe a little shorter.
mande2013 said on 17/Apr/15
@Sean: I see a 5'7 McAvoy with a 5'4.75 Radcliffe, because McAvoy's leaning in slightly. If we were going solely by the part of McAvoy's face at Daniel's eye level I'd say a two inch difference.
Sean said on 15/Apr/15
Looks like a reasonable strong 5'7 standing next to Radcliffe. Although I dont know if this shows that Radcliffe is that short or James Mcavoy is taller. heres the pic.

ichsi said on 29/Mar/15
I stood next to him last week and would say that a weak 5'7'' is accurate. I'm 100% convinced now though that he wears lifts to red carpet events.
. said on 23/Feb/15
I think he's shorter than this. His wife is listed as 5'7, but is the same height as him when he has an inch of footwear more than her.
Jeff said on 9/Feb/15
Rob, is he wearing elevators there? Click Here
[Editor Rob: tough one, in person it might be easier to say, because some chelsea type boots might have a higher angle at front. There's a chance though, boots like this you could have 2cm inside and hide it easy enough.]
Hofstadter said on 3/Feb/15
If he's 5ft 7, why is he taller than Jennifer Lawrence in this pic: Click Here ?
cole said on 28/Oct/14
@Editor Rob: You best do something about his greatest performance to date - Bruce Robertson in "Filth" not having a mention at the top!
word1234 said on 28/Oct/14
Wait so rob what do you think mcavoys morning height is?!
[Editor Rob: probably minimum 5ft 7.5 and maybe up to 5ft 7.75 out of bed]
word1234 said on 28/Oct/14
So rob you think he still would hold 5'7 even around 11pm?
[Editor Rob: if he dropped under I doubt it would be much, I mean a few mm maybe, not like a 1/3rd inch or anything.]
word1234 said on 26/Oct/14
How low would this guy deep in the evening 169?
[Editor Rob: I think he can still hold 5ft 7, I doubt he really drops under about that at worst.]
Markus from Italy said on 13/Oct/14
On many sites McAvoy is listed as 166 cm but I doubt he is only 166 cm, I think he might be a little over 5'7... I'm actually 172 cm, in some occasions I wear elevator shoes and can reach 177/178 cm. Here in this picture he's wearing elevator shoes too since Keira's 5'7 + heels as a consequence he must have wore those shoes to compensate in height... a part from that, I think it is not deprecable to wear elevator shoes, everyone does so, even in sport.
Realist said on 3/Oct/14
Rob by looking at his pics i have realized something, he is not an ectomorph but a very thin mesomorph. Tobey Maguire and Sean Penn (similar height range) are ectomorphs. Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr., Zac Efron, Hunter Parrish, Stephen Dorff, Wahlberg, Joaquin, Willem Dafoe are all lean mesomorphs. These guys are able to put on mass, whereas Tobey cannot do it easily. I realize that cause i was an overweight mesomorph, now average mesomorph.

Rob i don't think even you are an an ectomorph, you are a lean mesomorph. Could u answer that ? I am kind of curious ? I went to a doctor he checked my bone structure and my thumb reached my mid-finger over my wrists, also he checked my bone mass and bone span. He concluded i am an broad-shouldered mesomorph of a predicted height between 5'7 to 5'10 type height dependent bone structure, i am 5'7.5 so he was close.

(Also looks head to head with Ryan Seacrest)
[Editor Rob: yeah for Mcavoy that category might be possible, although I don't look as often at shirtless photos of men to get better ideas.] said on 28/Sep/14
whats the evening height for a 5'7 guy like him?
Realist said on 16/Jul/14
@Arch Stanton 5'10-5'11 is the kinda height were people won't notice a man's height, so they would be least bothered you might be right about that. But often the shorter guys focus on their personality, so we both are kind of right in our own way.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Jul/14
@Realist I'd say 5'10-6'1 and 5'5'-5'8 has the highest number of attractive celebs in them, particular 5'11 range for a guy and 5'6" for a woman.
Realist said on 10/Jul/14
I don't know why but 5'7-5'9 seems to be the most attractive section for men on this website and for women 5'4-5'5.
Realist said on 27/Jun/14
Most of the times he looks 5'7.25 but in Filth it almost looked as if Jamie Bell was 2 inches taller than him or something in fact Bell is atleast 1/2 inch shorter than this guy , 5'6.75 for Bell , 5'7 or 5'7.25 for James McAvoy.

MarkyMark said on 8/Jun/14
Why would he claim 5'7 if he was 5'8 ? WHy would a less than 180 cm man who would downgrade his height ??? I think he 's a legit 170 cm, maybe 168-169 cm but no more than 5'7. Great actor by the way.
Mc51295 said on 27/May/14
5'7 seems pretty spot on. Never looks tall, though he never looks short either. Regardless of height, he's a terrific actor
littlesue said on 14/Feb/14
A lot of the time its film fans who get them changed. Rob put the actress Susan Strasberg on here at just over 5ft. On the 'filmsite' they had her at 5ft 5 1/2!! so I sent them an email and said look at photo's of her with Marilyn Monroe and she was 5 inches shorter, they must have and changed it the next day
MD said on 13/Feb/14
@Realist, I think it's quite an assumption that the heights on the website-who-shall-not-be-named are from major actors, themselves. I can say with a lot of confidence that Michael Fassbender isn't sitting around trolling that website and adding in whatever he's listed at there. lol
[Editor Rob: if they have a resume page, then there is more chance of an agent/themselves giving info!]
Realist said on 11/Feb/14
OMG he cannot be shorter than 5'7. He is not insecure about his height unlike Fassbender and Lawrence who claim 3 inches more than their original height on the infamous website. If ROB was not there, i wouldve thought he is 172 cm.
OMG said on 8/Jan/14
He looks shorter than a Spice Girl and that says alot... He sure wears lifts next to Angelina Jolie (whom here you say is 1.69 when she is taller than him in flats on the making of the movie Wanted) I just watched Filth and he hardly looks taller than 1.65
Lorne said on 12/Sep/13
Yeah, for sure wears lifts, at times he looks legit 171.5-172.
Mike said on 4/Sep/13
But Mandy, how can you really see a half inch difference between he and Jen? I'm not disagreeing because I so believe Jen is at most 5'7.5. But in films it's so hard to tell the height because of what the screen does.
Balrog said on 22/Jul/13
He is a genuine 5'7'' guy.
Mandy said on 18/Jul/13
He appears to be shorter than Jennifer Lawerence who is 5'7.5. I would say he is around 5'7 or below.
cole said on 25/Jun/13
If Fassbender is a legit 5'11 guy, James would at least be 5'8, wouldn't he? Unless Fassbender really is a 5'10 guy?

Isn't this more or less how you look with 5'11 guys, Rob?:

If Anne Hathaway is 5ft 7 according to this site, then this means James McAvoy has to be 5ft 6 because in Becoming Jane McAvoy had to war three inch lifts to make him appear taller than Anne Hathaway who was an inch taller than him

Rob is it possible he looks taller like 5ft 9in he looks average height has very good body proportions so he can pull off looking average height like 5ft 9in i thought he at least 5ft 9in he has a slim build so he look can easily look taller like 5ft 9in range
[Editor Rob: I don't think he can look that tall, but with a decent sized shoe he can sometimes look 5ft 8]
the shredder said on 10/Feb/12
Agree Leonari ... Great shapoe that makes him look taller , his shortness shows when stand with tall celebs ... Hill lost weight but needs to be lean and work out to look like this guy , plus Hill is shorter !
leonari said on 8/Feb/12
Gary: He ain't taller. Trust me. Thats what a well proportioned 5'7" guy looks like. Compare him to Jonah Hill who is completely unporportional and maybe half inch smaller than James. Jonah has a tiny head, a huge square upper body and extremely short legs. He looks terribly short wherever I see him in pictures by himself . Even slimming down didn't help him. James on the other hand when alone in a photograph can almost look average.
Joe said on 7/Feb/12
I'm sure he wears either big heels or lifts because at times he looks nearer 5'8".
brandi said on 23/Nov/11
i hope he is shorter than 5'7. I love short guys!
LAN Jiao said on 3/Nov/11
mcAvoy looks to be a guy can be measured out straight at 169cm and also 170cm. does't look lower than 169cm even he fits big shoes the impression does not go under 169cm. his an honest 5'7 claimer.
Jacob said on 15/Oct/11
@ Gary: those black shoes McAvoy is wearing are looking suspicious. They definitely look like big boots though, so he certainly has a footwear advantage on Anne Marie.
Gary said on 16/Sep/11
I think he is a little bit taller than 5'7. Cause when you look at this picture, next to anne marie. She has no heels and you can see he is maybe 2 inches taller than her. And she is 5'7.
Click Here

Also, there is a picture where he is standing next to ryan seacrest who is 5'8, and james is like maybe an inch taller. But then again I saw them at an award show, where Ryan Seacrest interviewed James and his wife, and James looked a litle bit shorter than ryan. It's so strange...
I know he said he was 5'7, but I think he was just downplaying his height, to show he's not your typical leading man, like brad pitt
Benj said on 22/Aug/11
Seems very small next to Rebecca Hall - and at 5'10 she looked taller than dominic cooper. So maybe my height guessing is just a bit rubbish. The again tall girls do seem to often play down their height- though normally those taller than 5'10
Benj said on 22/Aug/11
I always got the impression Dominic Cooper was quite small but he's significantly taller than Mcavoy in Starter for 10. Coo
per must be atleast 5'10-11.
James Oliver Deckard said on 20/Aug/11
Just saw him in 'Starter For Ten' (2006). He looks tiny, certainly no 5'9".
purpleblue said on 16/Aug/11
i don't care if he's 5'8" or 4'1" as long as he is happy with it and he is contended with it i'm hppy for him...
Byron T. said on 15/Aug/11
After seeing X-Men: First Class, I think James McAvoy is under 5'7.'' Jennifer Lawrence and Lucas Till (who are both close to 5'8'') had a couple of inches on him. Overall, Mr. McAvoy is probably 5'6'' tops.
Nick said on 5/Aug/11
next to 5 foot 11.5 Michael Fassbender he looked 5 foot 7-maybe 8. at the most 4.5 inches
Jacob said on 19/Jul/11
He really didn't look that short in X-men. To be honest I would've guessed he was around the 5'9" mark, I was really surprised he's only this tall.

He did not look really short in xmen, he held his own @ 5ft7.
Quan said on 4/Jun/11
Jeebs says on 26/Aug/10
I think he's downplaying his height a little. Probably slightly under 5'8. It's more honest and humble to round down, I do it myself. I'm 5'9.5 in the morning so I claim 5 8.5 if anyone asks my height.

That's not being humble, that's just giving a false height for no reason.

Gotta agree with others saying he is a perfectly proportionate 5'7 guy. He didn't look out of the ordinary at all in Xmen next to tall guy Nicholas Hoult and 6ft Fassbender
Tyler said on 3/Jun/11
I think 5'7" is about right. Sure he's a little short, but damn he's a great actor.

Saw him in Covent Garden last summer. He is tiny! I'm 5' 6" and I was taller than him. I'd place him at 5' 5" tops, maybe even smaller.

5'7" definitely... In The Last King of Scotland he opens a passport and is describes as 5'7", beng a movie you would expect some rounding up. I guess he doesn't round himself up, so he's 5'7".
