To give up Hollywood and play in the NFL? I'd need a whole body transplant because those guys are absolutely huge...and absolutely stellar. I don't even think I'd even fit in. I am like 5'9"...but I say I'm six feet.

Eddie Murphy edges Foxx out, so Foxx is about 5’9”.

Jamie looked surprisingly tall with Chris Tucker at the 2016 Golden Globes:

Granted, the angle may be a factor in why he looks taller than usual, because Jamie looked at least 2.5" shorter than Tucker at another event, as can be seen in the photos below.

Jamie looked a solid 5'10" with Rock, which is probably the most clear example of why he deserves a 176 listing rather than 175. Jamie can pull off looking at least 5'9.5"-5'10" a lot and may have been modest with his 5'9" claim. He's content with being an average height guy, and thus is unlikely to be a lift wearer.

Poor Django! Have you seen the state of his back? DISGUSTING! They’ve beaten the life out of him.

I tripped over this film on the way to the toilet and decided to watch it, but NOT the horsie! You can’t kill a beast of burden. Don’t shoot him. That was out of order.

Anyway, before I come over all emotional, I’m giving handsome Jamie 5ft9.

I know Christoph has only the bed of intentions so watch on? I shall!

@ O-M the angles in that video are clearly bad, he looked the same height as Marlon at certain points, then looked 5 inches shorter.When standing side by side with Marlon he looked at least 5’9, same can be said when he stood beside Jim Carrey.
O-M said on 5/Sep/22
Marlon is 184.5cms according to celebsheight. Then Jamie has to be way shorter than 175cms. 21 seconds in this vid (Click Here), you can clearly notice the huge difference in height between Marlon and Jamie.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 6/May/22
I’m beginning to think Jamie Foxx is a bit over 5’9”, and maybe Eddie Murphy actually deserves an upgrade to 5’9 1/2”. Jamie Foxx doesn’t appear to be shorter next to Serena Williams, who is wearing high heels. He routinely makes Morgan Freeman, Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington, Chris Rock, Gerard Butler, Hugh Jackman, Obama along with other celebrities look shorter. He also holds his own next to measured athletes.

It’s impressive how he routinely doesn’t look under 5’9”, despite standing with average posture most of the time. Maybe Jamie Foxx is being modest with his claim since he’s content with being average.

I found some photos of Jamie Foxx standing next to Jeremy Renner, who appears to be 5’8” next to Rob, and Jamie Foxx surprisingly appears to be 5’9 1/2” next to him considering the hair advantage Renner has. It still doesn’t seem plausible that he’s over 5’9”.

I am 5'9.5 I would be surprised if Jamie Foxx was even a millimeter shorter than me. He is definitely 5'9.5 himself.

I think Tyrese Gibson needs to have his listing trimmed down to 5’10” flat though, since he isn’t much taller than Jamie Foxx:

This just adds more evidence to the plate proving that Tyrese Gibson’s 6’1” claim was ludicrous.

“ Chaos's Throwaway said on 15/Apr/22
I think part of the reason he looks taller is he’s a legit 5’9 who claims it instead of trying to pass for 5’10-6’0 range, a lot of guys who claim 5’9 are 5’6-5’8 and most guys his height inflate”

Same here. If Jamie Foxx Is 5’9 1/4”, then Eddie Murphy would need an upgrade to 5’9 1/2” in my opinion since Foxx is never taller than him. Even though I wouldn’t bet my money on it, I guess it’s not completely impossible.

I don't doubt this listing, but Jamie Foxx can appear surprisingly tall for a 5'9 guy. He's definitely not under 5'9.

I watched 'Django Unchained' last night and enjoyed it very much. I hadn't seen it for a while as I only have it on Blu-ray and I need a new player.

It's hard and painful to think that America was so racist as late as 1858. I noticed hints of racism in 'The Little House on the Prairie', which appalled me, but that was too 'nice' a programme to show just how awful things were for black slaves. Quentin Tarantino doesn't faff about but, via his films, he has the chance to 're-write history', as it were, turning the handsome black guy into a hero, who DOES enjoy his 'Happy Ever After'.

Brilliant stuff!

I noticed around 2" of difference between Jamie and Christoph Waltz, so Jamie gets 5ft9.25.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 3/Feb/22
After looking at a number of photos, I will say that the difference between Jamie Foxx’s eye level to the top of his head seems to be a bit more than usual.

While they aren’t the best photos, Jamie Foxx looks to be the same height as Johnny Depp, who is another person that stands at no more than 5’9”. Since Johnny Depp has a hat on, I’m basing this off of their eye level being the same.
Canson said on 1/Feb/22
I could argue a fraction over for him at times but not under 5’9”

He does manage to hold his own by Snoop Dogg, who is easily over 6’3”:

Jamie Foxx could pass for 5’10” by him, even though we all know he isn’t that tall.

What also stumped me was how tall he managed to look by Drake, despite how it’s evident that the latter is dropping height in the photo:

But then he appears no taller than Johnny Depp?

I believe he’s an honest 5’9” who doesn’t drop below the mark which is why he can appear taller on some occasions.

Jamie Foxx actually appears to be taller than Tom Hardy, especially when you compare how both celebrities stand next to Leonardo DiCaprio. Foxx is likely standing taller though.
Rising174cm said on 25/Dec/21
I'm simply playing devil's advocate since I think Jamie is probably 5'9.25" or 176 cm at this point. But there's no indication Don Johnson was wearing lifts there and he and Jamie even seem to have similar thin sneakers. I believe Johnson was most likely 5'9" flat as well based on how he looked on Miami Vice with Edward James Olmos, Philip Michael Thomas and Bruce Willis.

6'2.5" measured Kerry Rhodes is another athlete who made Jamie look below 5'9" back in 2007: Click Here

Full pic with Wesley Snipes, whom Rob has said is more of a weak 5'9" than a strong one: Click Here Doesn't look like there'd be much of a difference even if Foxx stood as straight. At the same event with 5'7" Tracee Ellis Ross: Click Here Her heel was more modest and closer to a 2" style than 3": Click Here

Samuel L. Jackson is not really the best reference since his posture can make him look shorter than he is, but if he's 6'1" then Jamie doesn't look over 5'9" here: Click Here 5'9.25" listed Kurt Russell looked taller than that with Jackson. To see what I mean, look up Jackson with 6'1" Barry Bonds back in 2003 when Jackson was presumably still closer to 6'2" than 6'1".

Didn't look over 5'9" when he greeted a then-5'10.5" max Jay Leno just after 35 seconds in this video: Click Here

5'9.25" listed Tupac could seem a bit taller in this 90s video as well: Click Here

Didn't look over 5'9" with Ludacris in this series of 2006 photos either: Click Here Click Here Click Here Ludacris is not taller than 5'8" or 172-173 cm range.

Jamie is generally confusing for this reason. He can pull off 5'10" at times the last decade, though he's obviously not over 5'9.5" max and more likely, not over 5'9.25".

Jamie Foxx has actually stood next to a ton of measured athletes, which works for a good benchmark. Jamie Foxx never appears to be under 5’9” by any of them, excluding Stephen Curry. That seems more of an isolated incident, so I’m willing to believe that maybe Curry had an advantage.

He also holds his own by Michael Strahan:

“Lawrence099 said on 20/Sep/21
IMO the reason he seems taller is because he actually is 5’9 at his low at night where as most people listed 5’9 here are only at that 5’9 mark at lunchtime and before and dip under it in the afternoon.One of the few listed 5’9 guys that actually doesn’t drop under the mark IMO.

That’s definitely not impossible.
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 23/Dec/21
There aren’t many photos of the two standing by each other at a clear angle, but here’s Jamie Foxx standing next to Samuel L. Jackson:

Click Here

The top of Jamie Foxx’s head is clearly above Samuel’s eye level in that shot if you zoom in, which means the difference in height between both of them is almost certainly no greater than 4” inches. Another factor: Samuel L. Jackson could very well have been standing a strong 6’1” at the time this picture was taken as well.

I wouldn’t rule out 5’9 1/4”. 5’9” flat isn’t outlandish either.
Sree Smith said on 22/Dec/21
Rob,who would you give the edge between Tom Hardy and Jamie foxx ?
Editor Rob
It's a toss up, both unlikely to fall under 5ft 9 and arguably 5ft 9 and change would be fair figures.
Wehrmacht180 said on 21/Dec/21
175 cm sure
Sree Smith said on 20/Dec/21
Dear Rob,what's your guess about Jamie's out of bed/absolute low height ?
Editor Rob
Good chance 5ft 10 range out of bed
Lawrence099 said on 20/Dec/21
Even if he measured 5’8 7/8 I would be stunned, I just can’t see him under 5’9.

He does look taller lately but he could look near an inch on Tracy Morgan years ago so I think 176 was still a good possibility even before he hit his “growth spurt”.

One question I have though is in the pics with him in thin shoes with DiCaprio, Tarantino, Waltz and Kerry Washington he looks really short, however Washington is listed here at 5’4 though I think she’s a bit under the mark, Even if she is only 5’3.5 he’d still look minimum 5’9 in comparison to her in those pics.Could DiCaprio, Waltz, and Tarantino had been in lifts in that event?Something is up with those pictures to say the very least.

Also in some pics with Don Johnson he did look under 5’9 but could Johnson have been in lifts?
Rising174cm said on 18/Dec/21
There's a good chance he's 5'9.25" since he claimed "like" 5'9", but I also wonder if he's started wearing lifts occasionally the last decade because he's started looking more 5'10" at times and there were times when he looked 5'9" max.

Good full pic with 5'9.25" listed Don Johnson in similar footwear: Click Here Johnson was 62 and clearly a bit taller.

Doesn't look over 5'9" flat in these full pics with 5'11"-5'11.25" DiCaprio: Click Here Click Here

Certainly doesn't look over 5'9" in this full pic with 5'11" listed Bruce Willis and 5'7.5"-5'7.75" Tom Cruise: Click Here There are other shots of Cruise and Foxx that night; here's one more for example: Click Here If you ask me, Tom's shoes looked pretty normal: Click Here Click Here Willis could have still been 5'11.25", but he was downgraded to 5'11" a mere 2-3 years later when he was struggling to look that height with Justin Long and was clearly shorter than Timothy Olyphant.

Can look under 5'9" in a series of full pics with an admitted 170 cm Christoph Waltz: Click Here Click Here Click Here (Note: I see a much better chance of Foxx being a bit over his claim than Waltz, but the opposite looks true here. Of course, Tom Cruise looked much closer to Jamie's height than Waltz did)

That's just a sample, but there are other examples. I'd actually lean towards 5'9.25" myself. I'm just posting shots where he looks shorter to give a more accurate overall picture. I've not seen him wear anything that looked like clear elevators nor have I seen a shot where his ankle was visible and high enough to suggest lifts. But it's strange that he can look as short as 5'8.5" and as tall as 5'10". The Don Johnson comparison is particularly useful because they're both around 5'9".

Same here. Russell Wilson is towered over by Stephen Curry in this photo:

I also found a photo of Russell Wilson standing back to back with Baker Mayfield, jokingly asking who was taller. Russell Wilson busted a gut, raising himself into the same posture Big G stood in to appear his tallest for his measurement. Baker Mayfield was standing with a relaxed stance, and he was still taller! To me, Baker Mayfield is a strong 6 footer at best:

Jamie Foxx appears to stand at around a humble 5’9”. He’s one of the few actors who displays no signs of insecurities regarding his stature. There’s an off-chance of him being just a slim fraction over the mark.

Can look 5'10.5, 5'10.75 with Dicaprio, if Dicaprio is 5'11, 5'11.25. He definently and overall, looks within 1-inch of his height.

Michael B. Jordan only has a slight edge on him thus, he has to be a stronger 5'9 than the likes of Tom Hardy and most other celebs listed at this height.
RJT said on 5/Sep/21
From my perspective, 175-176cm is not short but average height, even compared to my 189-190cm frame.

Because the average in my Country is 165cm, they only come up to my chin but 175cm guy come up to around my nose, so they're not as short as people think.

Sinclair said on 5/Jul/21
Good listing, Rob. Foxx is probably 5’9” at least, I actually think he looked the same height as 5’9” Don Johnson in promotional pictures for Django Unchained. Maybe Johnson’s hair advantage could have given him the slightest edge but I still think they were basically the same height at the time of that film.

still not entirely ruled out 9.25.

All the best to smashing actor Jamie Foxx who celebrates his 53rd Birthday today. 😄👍

Jamie's build enables him to pass for taller than his 5ft9. I loved him as Quentin's Django.

His Birthday guess from me is 5ft9.25. 😁🍻😆

@Shayz True in reality many people claiming around 1.5" taller than their barefoot measurement, in many part in the US people did it, i am canadian and nailed alot of people who tend to claim an inch taller i'll call it with shoes on measurement. One point is that 178cm definitely was your out of bed height :)
Shayz said on 1/Nov/20
Average height for fox 175 people say 177 is average nut I think 173 is about average as most people stick at least 3 - 4 cms on their height some lie but a lot just don't know , I said for 25 years I'm 178 but when measured was 1.76
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Oct/20
Click Here Picture like this already tell that Leo in sneakers was 6'0 and look 3/4 taller than Jamie which means Jamie gonna wear a 2" lift to reach up 5'11.25" as my estimate stick on 176cm barefoot for Jamie, for some reason i knew Leo is hardly below 5'11 1/4.

Click Here No help from thick footwear or lift he look as low as 5'9 or lower with Leo but in this picture he didn't seem to prepare his posture well like Leo did. The best he could be 176cm standing straight with Leo. The goo point in this picture is that they're both in flat style sneakers easily tell their comparison.

Solid 6'1 1/4 Gerard Butler can look at most 6'0-6'0 1/4 with Jamie. If 5'9 is legit claim then Jamie must have wear lift for sure.

Rob, Jamie Foxx is pretty muscolar, in my idea is near 180/185 lbs?
In Django Unchained, however he seemed "skinny" maybe near the 160 lbs?
Editor Rob
maybe near 170
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Jun/20

Click Here Look here he even look 5'9 3/4 with 5'11 now Jimmy Kimmel but this picture could be his head a little closer to camera so he still look 5'9 1/2 worst if like you say 5'9 1/8 then he must have hiding in a 3/8 inch extra soles most of the time to apear this range but you wouldn't know he might be a guy measure by the doctor at 5'9 1/2 in the morning round down claim 5'9 and hold stronger 5'9 1/4, at the one time with a peak 5'10 George Lopez he look at least 5'10 1/2 i bet he wear lift can tell with the thick sneakers to let him pull off that range.
Canson said on 13/Jun/20
@Junior: Foxx at times is one of those guys who can give off an impression where he can look 5’9.5 at times. 5’9 1/8 is possible. He is like a Neeson or a Hasselhoff in that they both appear over the marks
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Jun/20
I still see Jamie as 5'9.25" but i wonder he wear lift to give 5'10 impression. He can look 5'9 3/4-5'10 with a current 5'9.25-5'9.5" Kevin Spacey and look a bit over 5'10 with George Lopez in the past.

Foxx has made many men an inch smaller at times, I can see why people would guess Jamie near 5ft 10.

I found 175cm for him. That'll do nicely!

He’s at least 5’10/11. Look at his interview with jimmy fallon.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Nov/19
5'9 1/4 still not out of the box. Fox is always 5'9 1/4. Colin Farrell is more of a solid 177cm guy.

Who do you think would be taller barefoot him or Katie holmes?"

Holmes is taller in photos with comparable footwear, and even when she's wearing flatter shoes. She also bends her legs when they are together. Holmes IMO is 5'10"; Foxx is 5'9".

Rob, don't mind pick a lowest for Jamie you felt it most.

A. 175cm

B. 175.5cm

C. 176cm

D. 176.5cm
Editor Rob
I feel B might be the low end for him, arguably he's like myself, just a bit over 5ft 9 but doesn't claim it
Canson said on 6/Jul/19
He doesn’t look as low as 5’8”. Maybe a weak 5’9” if we’re all off but he really does look 5’9” most of the time in camera
cmillzz said on 6/Jul/19
If you include males of all races and ages 18+, the average is struggling to hit 5’9 in the USA.
Never said on 6/Jul/19
I've stood next to Jamie before and he was noticeably taller than me, but not by a lot. I'm 5'6" (5'7" with shoes) and didn't feel like he had 3 inches on me, so if that's 5'9" in shoes, I'd buy it, but not barefoot though.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 15/May/19
@Paul Wood If you realise most people isn't that tall as 5'9 1/2, it could be just a height with shoes average accumulated. I walk on the street, malls or airport in london i don't see an average 5'9.75" range most teenage boys to adult male there and most of the time i easily passby 5'7-5'8 guys and in the US i have seem an average height is more like 5'8 1/2 range and in canada were most likely same as in the UK range.
Paul Wood said on 7/May/19
Average male in the UK and USA height is 177cm so even if he's 175cm he's still about three quarters of an inch below average, like Tom Hardy.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Apr/19
@Canson most 5'9 listed guys look 5'8 1/2 to struggle looking 5'9, Foxx easily look 5'9 or a bit over.
Canson said on 4/Apr/19
I think Murphy May be the tallest at a full 176. Foxx doesn’t look less than 5’9” either
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Jan/19
@Rising - 174 cm Leto and Foxx got higher chances, both are the candidates on Casper.
Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Jan/19
Murphy? Probably 176 cm. The other 3 are a maybe 176, yet Rob has all 3 listed 5'9" flat so it's probably more likely that an honest 5'9" seems a little taller because of the weak 5'9" guys and 5'7"-5'8" guys claiming 5'9". I'm not certain any are quite as tall as Casper Van Dien.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Dec/18
Jared Leto, Justin Long, Eddie Murphy and Foxx they're guys like all stronger 176cm zone than saying 5'9.
Rising - 174 cm said on 27/Dec/18
@James694: I've only seen pics where Foxx had a considerable advantage, but I'd have to guess Jamie is the taller of the two. I think Depp may be more of a weak 5'9" and I wouldn't be surprised if he were just 5'8.5" without shoes.

@Robby Harris: In fairness, I think Tucker is a guy sort of like Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson who often drops a lot of height with his posture. I can't tell, but he might be bending his knee in that 3rd pic from 2016. But yeah, the difference winds up just 3, maybe 3.5 cm there. I suspect it'd still be more if Tucker straightened up, but not like 2004 so that's more of what I've talked about with Jamie's "growth spurt" the past 5 or so years. Look at him and Taron Egerton. Taron looks about an inch taller at Cinemacon in what I thought might be elevator boots: Click Here and here's video with pretty good footage of them posing for photos after the 2 minute mark: Click Here but now look at them on The Tonight Show and Jamie is about an inch taller: Click Here In that case, Jamie had some particularly bulky looking sneakers: Click Here Click Here Some of this is pretty weird at the very least.
Robby Harris said on 22/Dec/18
He definitely wears lifts. Here's some photos of Foxx with 6'0.5" Chris Tucker at the Golden Globes in 2016: Click Here Click Here Click Here He looks an inch or so shorter, yet looked a few inches shorter than Tucker at another event in 2004: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
James694 said on 20/Dec/18
Foxx edged out Depp that's what I meant. Foxx seemed a hair taller
James694 said on 19/Dec/18
Though he did say like 5'9 lol between 5'8 3/4 and 5'9 1/4 is possible anything as high as 5'10 is laughable why would a 5'10 guy claim 5'9. I've seen pics with him and depp and he edged foxx a little bit. Though I think they would measure similar.
Rising - 174 cm said on 14/Dec/18
Except Colin isn't 5'10". I know Rob lists him at that, but without heels or lifts, Colin is as much 5'10" as Matt Damon is. Jamie has been shorter than Lopez except when he had those really thick platform sneakers. He did look taller with Tatum, but Tatum has terrible posture and might be shorter than listed because he looks shorter with a lot of people. 5'9.5" is too high. Maybe 5'9.25" for Jamie. If you really do believe Colin is a full 5'10" then yes, Jamie would be taller than 5'9", but what's more likely? Colin being honest about his height AND Jamie downplaying his or Colin at least rounding up a bit and Jamie being honest? Clearly the 2nd option is more likely.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Dec/18
Jamie real height would be a myth. He can look only 1/4 shorter than 5'10 Colin Farrell and he could look over 5'10 with 5'10 George Lopez (prob 5'9 1/2) and with 6'0 1/2 Channing Tatum to be exact look 5'10-ish. But sometimes look 5'9 1/4-5'9 1/2 range and i almost doesn't see him a flat 5'9. I still think he would measure 5'9 1/2 at low.
Rising - 174 cm said on 31/Oct/18
I should be clear that I think there's a good chance of 176 cm, but all I'm saying is the current 5'9" flat listing is definitely possible too and the comparisons where Jamie looks taller shouldn't be the only ones considered.
2015 with 5'7.5" listed Ryan Seacrest: Click Here and Ryan wore flat sneakers: Click Here
Here's Jamie a good 6" shorter than 6'2.5" measured Kerry Rhodes in 2007: Click Here
Slightly taller than 5'8.25" Jeremy Renner at the 2013 Oscars: Click Here
Looking similar to 5'8.75" listed Sam Mendes on the set of Jarhead: Click Here
Sandy Cowell said on 31/Oct/18
I enjoyed my introduction to Jamie in 'Django Unchained', a Tarantino movie which, like 'True Romance', actually had a happy ending, even though there was an awful lot of bloodshed along the way! He looked rather tall next to his beautiful and talented girlfriend, played by the 5ft3 (I think!) Kerry Washington, and it's probably for that reason that I expected to find Jamie to be around 5ft10, but a true 5ft9 is still quite tall, especially next to someone of Kerry's stature.

5ft9 it is then!
afpoeofij said on 28/Oct/18
Jamie is one of the few actors who's listed relatively close to his height, i.e. not exaggerated by 3" like every other person on the face of the earth. I'm only Big G's height (5'6.5"), over 5'7" with shoes, and Jamie was only a bit taller than me. Not 2 inches taller, but definitely an inch, an inch and a half at most. So Mr. Foxx really is 5'8", 5'8.5" max. It's laughable that Taron Egerton is listed at the same height since the difference between him and Foxx is about the same as it was between me and Foxx.
Rising - 174 cm said on 25/Oct/18
@Junior: Jamie's Adidas will give a significant advantage over Leo's 0.7" type sneakers. The 2012 pics are a better comparison because Jamie and Leo have similar sneakers back in 2012: Click Here Click Here Even more telling is Jamie looked shorter than 5'9.5" listed Don Johnson with both in the same type of sneakers: Click Here Actually, I think Don was only 5'9" flat, but either way, Jamie looks 5'9" max with both. Jamie was also shorter than George Lopez back when he appeared on his show in 2011: Click Here Jamie looked closer to George's height in his appearance before this promoting Due Date because he wore boots that time. He wore boots when he appeared 2 months earlier on the show while Lopez had flat dress shoes: Click Here and Jamie wore boots on another appearance: Click Here If you're talking about the Rio screening, Jamie had some thick, funny looking sneakers there: Click Here Notice the heel area is high and the sneakers are in kind of a platform style. I don't know what kind of sneakers Jamie wore on the Tonight Show this year, but they were also thick soled: Click Here Notice Jamie is usually wearing boots or thick high tops when he looks taller, but looks 5'9" max with flat sneakers in my pics with Leo and DJ. If Jamie were 5'9.5", there's no way he'd look shorter than a 62 year old Don Johnson in the same type of sneakers in a full side by side pic inside. I can see the argument for 176 cm, but remember Jamie was clearly shorter than Tupac on In Living Color back in the 90's: Click Here I always thought Tupac was more of a flat 5'9" myself, but Rob's listings of 5'9.25" for Pac and 5'9" for Jamie add up.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Oct/18
Anyway Foxx is hardly under pinned 176cm. If he start to wear thicker footwear nowadays can be understand from some recent pictures with Leonardo DiCaprio and George Lopez. Foxx just look 5'10 range with them. Click Here Heels on Foxx maybe suspicious it could be a 1.5" and Leo a solid inch. Leo i could believe on the 181cm side and Foxx got a higher chance to be 5'9 1/2 than just 5'9.
Rising - 174 cm said on 14/Oct/18
That's not 3". Even in the pic with Jamie you can see her foot is not at enough of an angle. The heel would have to be larger than 3" to give her that much actual height and there's just no way. At most, it's low 2" range for actual height, but even then Jamie is slightly closer to the camera. Snipes is standing straighter, but winds up looking taller and he's at best a weaker 5'9" himself. I don't think it's a coincidence Jamie was looking 5'9" max in both full pics from the same event. That shows he doesn't always look taller even now. I don't know for sure if he wears lifts sometimes, but I do know he didn't grow after 2004 and we know from Jamie himself that he was 5'9" as of 2004 and that's generally what he looked then and for quite a few years after. Sometimes he'll wear thicker sneakers or boots like Timberlands that could give him an advantage without lifts.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Oct/18
@Rising - 174 cm Tracee Ellis Ross wear a standard 3" with Jamie Foxx. Because the camera was captured from more from the top angle from upper body to their head level downward making it odd with long torso shorter legs so any heels from feet look smaller but it isn't. Picture with Wesley Snipes look a little odd that might take some advantage on Snipes side standing. Whether if Foxx slip in a little lift's like an extra 1-2cm lift's in his footwear could be a myth.
Rising - 174 cm said on 2/Oct/18
With 5'7" Tracee Ellis Ross(in a low heel) a couple of years back: Click Here Her heel doesn't look over 2" to me: Click Here Here's Jamie at the same event with weak 5'9" Wesley Snipes: Click Here Jamie is leaning a bit with Snipes and looks to me like he has a fraction less shoes, but Jamie is closer to the camera in both pics and looks about 5'9" at that event and no more, no less. If he looks noticeably taller at times, then remember it would be easy to slip a small lift into a chelsea boot like this with nobody noticing: Click Here and the same goes for many hi tops. Whether he's actually done this is another matter.

legit 5’9
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Sep/18
@Jtm: I thought that was possible when I first saw Waltz claim since he struck me as a short guy before looking at his height, but I think 170 cm is fair. I doubt Waltz has lifts at the premiere, though as his shoes look as flat as Jamie's do. I think Jamie likely looked taller because he was the star of the film. I don't remember Leo looking that much taller than Jamie in the film yet Leo was 2"+ taller in the photos I posted of Leo and Jamie both in 0.7" range sneakers, which also suggests Jamie looked taller in the film than at events for the film. Here's Jamie at the same event with 6'1" Samuel L. Jackson: Click Here Click Here Kurt Russell actually looks taller than that with Jackson.

@Junior: I've said quite a few times that Jamie can LOOK taller than 5'9" lately. It's more common that the others would be shorter than listed rather than those guys being taller than they claim. Leto could be either 5'9" or 5'9.25", imo. But along with the Jackson pics, I've posted many comparisons where Jamie looks no taller than 5'9" compared to other listings on this site including Waltz(5'7.25"), (5'7.75"), Leno(5'10.5"), DiCaprio(5'11.25"), Willis(5'11"), Tupac(5'9.25"), Don Johnson(5'9.5"), Diddy(5'10") and Ludacris(5'8"). And I think those listings for Johnson, Waltz and possibly DiCaprio and Tupac are a fraction high. Josh Lucas slouches and has about 5-5.5 cm on Jamie at the Stealth premiere: Click Here Click Here Lucas at 5'11.5" and Jamie at 5'9" look right when you consider Lucas is dropping some height with his posture. Their boots look pretty normal with Lucas maybe having a bit thicker sole, but if you look at their laces, Jamie's boots have more of an angle so he probably at least has a bigger insole: Click Here Click Here Click Here
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Sep/18
@Rising - 174 cm Waltz, Foxx include Jared Leto and Ryan Reynolds this four big names were all a little under listed compare to almost all actors which were mostly listed 1-2cm too high in this site. Fox a high chance is 5'9 1/2 just don't bother with the 1/2 claimed. One most legit 5'11 1/2 guy like Josh Lucas look at most 5cm taller than Foxx in Stealth, both Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake also listed 5'11 1/2 but only look between 4-4.5cm higher than Foxx.
Jtm said on 6/Sep/18
maybe waltz is wearing lifts in those pictures. he actually looks closer to 5'6 to me. i remember foxx looked much taller than waltz in django unchained.
Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Sep/18
He could actually look only 174 or 174.5 cm with Christoph Waltz, who claims 170 himself: Click Here Click Here Click Here I don't think Waltz is taller than his claim, but if he was, it'd have to be something like 170.5, imo, in which case you could say Jamie looks as tall as 175. This is pretty close to how they looked at other Django events, but if anything, Jamie looks a bit shorter here than Jared Leto does with Waltz at the top of his page. Don't get me wrong, I think both Jamie and Waltz are what they claim, no more and no less, but as recent as 2012-2013, Jamie often didn't look anything over his claim.

@viper: How tall do you think Tommy Davidson is? I always saw 5'6" listings for him, but there hasn't been a lot of discussion about him on this site.
Lapinux said on 30/Aug/18
I dont think he is over 176-176.5
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 28/Aug/18
I still see him a tap over 5'9.5" unless he wear lift. George Lopez look shorter than Jamie.
viper said on 24/Aug/18
Thought Jamie was 5-8 on Living Color
Rising - 174 cm said on 22/Aug/18
@Lapinux: Jamie does have a footwear advantage there. He has boots while Glover looks to have loafers without much heel or something like that.

viper: Well he was shorter than Tupac back in the 90's so I think it's understandable the question could have been more whether he was as tall as his claim years ago. He was taller than Tracy Morgan, though so I think he's about what he says, but he really doesn't look over 5'9" wearing the same type of sneakers as Don Johnson: Click Here I'd argue DJ was always more 5'9" flat, but even if you give him 5'9.5" as listed and assume he lost nothing by 61, Jamie still looks more 5'9" flat there.
vioer said on 20/Aug/18
I thought he was only 5-8 originally
Lapinux said on 20/Aug/18

In this video he clearly edged out 5'8.5" Donald Glover. Jamie can look close to 176 there but maybe he has a small footwear advantage
Rising - 174 cm said on 19/Aug/18
@Junior: Foxx only looked near 5'10" with Leo last year and whether or not he had lifts, his Adidas gave him a significant enough advantage over Leo's 0.7" sneakers and Foxx looked 5'9" at best when they had similar flat sneakers in the 2012 photos I posted. Like I said, I agree Foxx can look 5'9.5"-5'10", but my point is that's only how he looks now and Jamie use to often look no more than his claim. 176 cm Tupac was taller than him back in the 90's. Butler and Tatum drop a lot of height for some photos. Jamie could look as tall as Colin Farrell at times, but I think he was shorter in general and I believe Colin is more like 5'9.5" without his cowboy boots. There's almost no difference between Colin and Jared Leto: Click Here Click Here Like I said, a 60+ year old Don Johnson looked slightly taller than Jamie in what looked like the same footwear. Even if DJ was 5'9.5" Jamie still only looked 5'9" with him. And look at Jamie with Christoph Waltz: Click Here Even if Waltz is 170.5 instead of 170, Jamie still looks nothing over 5'9" there. Same with 5'10" Diddy here: Click Here

Jamie looks more than 2" shorter than 5'11" Bruce Willis in 2004: Click Here and he was not much taller than Tom Cruise that same night: Click Here Click Here Click Here and Tom's shoes even look normal: Click Here Click Here You even said you thought Cruise was 5'7" flat.
Lapinux said on 18/Aug/18
Rob have you seen anything to suggest he wears lifts?
Editor Rob
No, there's nothing obvious that stands out. Just seems like Hardy, an average man who is honest...maybe a tad over his claim of course.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Aug/18
@Rising - 174 cm You can always google it. Foxx really look close to 5'10 with Cameron Diaz, Bobby Cannavale, Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Channing Tatum, Gerard Butler, Colin Farrell and Leo if go by their listed height given by Rob. Between 5'9 5/8-5'10 range is how he look. Its weird that Justin Timberlake look a bit under 2" taller than Foxx when they have similar footwear.
Rising - 174 cm said on 17/Aug/18
@Junior: I'm not 100% sure because I haven't seen proof yet, but what other explanation is there for Jamie looking noticeably taller now than he did in his 30's or early 40's? I agree he can look closer to 5'10" now, but he still often looked a flat 5'9" guy as recent as Django. The difference in '17-'18 with Leno and Leo compared to '12-'13 is striking and Leo was even wearing the same shoes in both comparisons. Maybe he wanted to be a little taller since he's dating Katie Holmes?
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/Aug/18
I'm in the blur line that wonder if Jamie really wear lift's? Problem is i don't see it. He look 5'10 with a darn loads of actors and he say he is like 5'9. Justin Timberlake atually look nothing on 2" taller more like 1.5" more i look at it. If Jamie Foxx is 5'9 then Timberlake is nothing over 5'10 1/2 and that would dragged alot of actors down like 1".
Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Aug/18
@Bigpapa: 5'10"-5'11" is ridiculous since Jamie said himself he's only 5'9". And he's not almost as tall as Leo: Click Here Click Here That's 2012 when Leo was 37 and Jamie was 44 and Jamie struggles to even look the full 5'9" there with similar shoes. The top of his hat doesn't even make him as tall! He obviously didn't grow after that. The fact he looked much closer to Leo's height only suggests he's began wearing lifts.
Bigpapa said on 6/Aug/18
Hes 5'10-5'11 almost as tall as leonardo dicaprio
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Jul/18
Assuming their listings are accurate, Jamie can look about 5'10", but I've noticed Butler and especially Tatum drop noticeable height with their posture. Of course, we know Jamie is not 5'10" so that only makes me more suspicious he's started wearing lifts at times the last few years. The question is whether he's a flat 5'9" or if he's 176 cm range. If you look at the 2004 CBS Ray Charles tribute, Jamie struggles to look an inch taller than Tom Cruise and Tom's shoes actually look normal. He was still noticeably shorter than Leno towards the end of Leno's run on The Tonight Show: Click Here Click Here (watch around 35 seconds in the first video and 50 seconds). I don't see Jamie over 5'9" in either video, especially the first since Leno was in the 5'10"-5'10.5" range by then. And this photo from December 2012 seems to support this: Click Here But they look pretty close in height on Jay Leno's Garage recently: Click Here (watch from around 30 seconds) I don't think Leno has shrunk THAT much more in just the last few years. It seems more likely to me that Jamie might sometimes slip a lift into his high tops or dress boots for talk shows and premieres or even wear the occasional elevator shoe.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 15/Jul/18
Although i thought of 5'9 1/4 alot but re watch many times pictures and clips with Gerard Butler, Channing Tatum my thoughts on Jamie was solid 5'10 if Gerard and Channing height is legit in this site.
Hunter said on 10/Jul/18
Rob, do you think 5'9.25"-5'9.5" (175.9-176.5) is posible for him?

He looks taller than a flat 5'9 for sure.
Editor Rob
I think you can make a case for 9.25. He has pulled that look of 176cm off and maybe is simply a guy who didn't care about a fraction when saying 5ft 9.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Jul/18
Kevin Spacey i think could be 177cm peak and 176cm now and looking eye to eye on Jamie Fox.
Lapinux said on 2/Jul/18

Yeah 176-177 for Hardy is too much, I agree. Jamie on the other hand I think could be 5'9 1/4 just as much as a flat 5'9". Although, 5'9 3/4 and upwards seems too much for Jamie. Btw whats the highest and lowest you'd argue for him Rob, from what you've seen?
Rising - 174 cm said on 28/Jun/18
@Lapinux: I agree 100%. I can see a 176 cm listing for Jamie more than Tom Hardy, but that's because he can appear 5'9.5"-5'10" or 177 cm the last few years, which is odd enough to require some explanation before upgrading him, imo as people don't grow in their 40's. Remember, Mr. R said Jamie looked 5'8.5" to him years ago, but also noted Jamie has looked taller since Ray made him a movie star. I wouldn't go as low as 174 cm myself, but I can believe he appeared that to Mr. R. and I think the flat 5'9" listing is still fine as he often didn't look over that as recent as Django.

The photo with Don Johnson is just one example, here he is not looking even a full 2" taller than Christoph Waltz, who is 170 cm by his own admission: Click Here And Leo is a solid 5'11" or 180-181 cm range, but has 2 cm max sneakers: Click Here Jamie certainly doesn't look over 5'9" there, but look at them within the last year with Leo wearing the same sneakers and Jamie in Adidas: Click Here Click Here Suddenly, Jamie is looking closer to 177 cm and that's true on the video of that telethon as well. His Adidas will give him an advantage anyway, but it's not unreasonable to wonder if he slipped in an extra lift.

Here he is with Bruce Willis and Tom Cruise in 2004: Click Here Bruce was pushing 50 and the same solid 5'11" or 180-181 cm range as Leo is now while we all know Cruise is 171-172 cm range. Bruce looks more than 2" taller and Jamie was only looking about 2 cm taller than Cruise that night: Click Here Click Here Here's a side view of TOm's shoes: Click Here Those actually look pretty normal to me and would be a 1.8"-2" elevator at most.

I think outside of Jamie's apparent growth spurt in his 40's, a big part of this is people aren't use to seeing an honest 5'9", but look at Jamie next to an honest 5'10" Diddy: Click Here Jamie looks just about an inch shorter and Diddy is leaning.
Canson said on 27/Jun/18
@Rising: He could look taller and shorter tho sometimes. I remember in his show with Garcelle Beauvais. But I couldn’t rule that out either. That’s odd because he and DJ wear the same shoe In that pic
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/Jun/18
Rob, i think its time to upgrade Foxx a gifted 1/4 inch more.
Lapinux said on 27/Jun/18
@Rising - 174 cm

I totally agree with you that ruling out 5'9 flat is going way too far. Jamie's build doesnt lie, he got one of somebody who is 5'9 range, not close to 5'10. It's possible the times Jamie looks 5'9.5 that he wears like unoticeable half inch lifts. It can boost a flat 5'9 guy to look 177-ish. Maybe he did start wearing lifts in his sneakers. 176 is still a good possibility though.
Rising - 174 cm said on 26/Jun/18
@Rob: I agree it's certainly possible, I just think ruling out 5'9" flat completely is going way too far. It is odd to me that it's mostly in his 40's and now early 50's that he looks taller, but he looks shorter than I'd expect with a 62 year old Don Johnson: Click Here As far as I can tell, they have very similar sneakers as well at roughly 2 cm range give or take. I suppose a half inch lift is always possible, but much more than that and you'd definitely see a bulge in those sneakers.
Rising - 174 cm said on 25/Jun/18
Of course there's a chance he's a flat 5'9", especially since he claimed 5'9". 176 cm is possible too, but better chance of a flat 5'9" than 5'9.5". It's only been the last 5, maybe 10 years that Foxx has strangely looked taller, but there are plenty of times he doesn't look anything over his claim such as back in the 90's when Tupac looked taller than Foxx if anything. More recently, he didn't look taller than Wesley Snipes, who is really more of a weak 5'9" guy and Don Johnson is another 5'9" guy(possibly 5'8.5" by the time of Django), who could look taller than Foxx at times, though DJ has been said to wear lifts.. Jamie could also look nothing over 5'9" with admitted 170 cm Christoph Waltz, solid 5'11" guys like Bruce Willis(in 2004) and Leo DiCaprio and 5'8" max Ludacris and Kanye West. He's probably 5'9" give or take 1/4", but might have have started wearing lifts since he became more famous.
Editor Rob
He could be slightly modest and be just over 5ft 9, I think many would estimate he can look 5ft 9.25
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Jun/18
@Elliot I could say Carrell is a flat 175cm guy and Foxx is more like a solid 176ish guy maybe a little chance he could be 5'9.5" not certainly not quite higher. Flat 5'9 no chance.
Van said on 7/Jun/18
I think he's 5'9 on the spot, but can appear taller because of his really good posture and excellent body proportions.
Elliot said on 13/May/18
On the Graham Norton Show, he's looks no taller than Steve Carell (who I'm sure is 5'9 flat).
Click Here (3m29s)
Elliot said on 11/May/18
Jamie Foxx is the most puzzling guy listed on this site. Depending on who he's standing next to he can look anything between 5'8 and 5'11. I'm pretty sure he's between 5'9 and 5'10 but it would be good to which he's closest to.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/May/18
176cm is absolute worst.
haxxx said on 25/Apr/18
This guy makes 5'9 look tallish sometimes lol
Junior Hernandez said on 5/Feb/18
@Jake94 (5'9

No he doesn't look under 5'9.5" with Colin Farell, Cameron Diaz, Josh Lucas, Andrew Garfield, Bobby Cannavale, Emma Stone plus many more and edge out George Lopez easily. Lopez 5'10 claim was a joke.
Jake94 (5'9 said on 22/Jan/18
I'd go 5'9" flat. I'm tempted to say 176, but he does wear thick shoes often. Likely not a lift wearer, just wears big shoes.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 19/Jan/18
Rob, what are the odds of Jamie Foxx ever getting a 5'9 1/4"-5'9 1/2" listing? Would you agree that it's far more likely that Jamie is 5'9 1/4" over him being 5'8 3/4"?
Editor Rob
He's certainly a guy you could give a little bit over 5ft 9 too.
Junior said on 8/Dec/17
I'm pretty sure if Foxx is only 5'9 then Morgan Freeeman is not going to be over 6'1 even ten years back an Samuel L.Jackson probably 6'0 flat. I even think 176.7cm is not enough for Foxx. He make 5'11.5" Josh Lucas look a weak 5'11.
Canson said on 11/Nov/17
@Rising: I can see him being 5’9.5 or 5’9.25 out of bed then dipping to 5’8.5-5’9. That looks about right for him as he can look near that mark
Canson said on 28/Oct/17
@Junior: there are a lot of celebs who lie up like The Rock or Jimmy Kimmel those aren’t shoe heights for either of those two. Foxx tho I would’ve expected to be a little taller than that. I would’ve figured he’s at least 5’8” barefoot
Junior said on 27/Oct/17
@Mike said on 16/Sep/17

Are you serious? That would make Foxx 5'7? I'm sure that actors should be at least listed with shoes height or real height.
Canson said on 22/Oct/17
@Mike: that means he’s prob 5’7 then?

not caught it yet, but many believe Foxx can look 5ft 9.5 at times.
Mike said on 16/Sep/17
He's 5'8". Met him at LAX once and talked to him, well not talked but maybe just like hi. I'm 5'8" with shoes and I was staring at him eyes to eyes.

He look 5'9.5" with actors like 6'1.25" Gerrard Butler, 5'10.5" Andre Garfield and 6'0.5" Channing Tatum.
Rising - 174 cm said on 31/Jul/17
Check this out, 175-176 cm Tupac if anything appeared taller than Jamie back in the 90s: Click Here

Also, is Tommy Davidson really around 5'6"?
RisingForce said on 15/Jul/17
I'd be surprised if Foxx wasn't 5'9.5" in the morning since he does seem to legitimately be around a legit 5'9". I doubt he'd drop much under it, if at all. I do have some suspicions Tatum could be a bit shorter than people think. I'll have to go check, but I don't think he was more than 6" taller than Jonah Hill, who I believe is 5'6". As for Garfield, well, he could look not much taller than Tom Cruise and especially a 70 year old Robert Redford during appearances for Lions for Lambs. His height varies with Mel Gibson for instance, though that's likely Mel's shoes, but Garfield is definitely taller than Gibson, who I think was and still is 5'9". Somewhere between 5'10"-5'10.5" seems likely for Andrew. His build and proportions make him seem taller.
S.J.H said on 12/Jul/17
@even said on 8/Jul/17

Others is just 1-2cm off the listing here. Channing Tatum is not over 6'0 , Andrew Garfield i'm pretty sure is 5'10.

Tiniest bit above 5'9".
S.J.H said on 21/Jun/17
Honestly i believe foxx is someone hit as high as close to 5'9.5 on a morning medical and came down a flat 175cm at night. Most of his co-star is just overlisted here by 0.5-1'. There is why foxx can apear from all range 5'9.25 to 5'10 but his not even this high. Just 5'9 like justin long
theL4st said on 19/Jun/17
rob have you seen this ? Click Here do you think he pulls of 5'10 next to ansel ?
RisingForce said on 15/Jun/17
I said 176 for Eddie Murphy, which is basically 5'9.25", which is what Rob lists him so then assuming the differences you cite are correct, Jamie and Justin Long are 5'9", exactly what Rob lists them at as well. I just said that if I had to choose between 5'9" and 5'9.5" for Eddie, I'd go with 5'9", but luckily, I don't have to choose between those 2 and can say he's in between at 5'9.25".
S.J.H said on 13/Jun/17
@RisingForce said on 10/Jun/17

If you going 5'9 for eddie then justin long and jamie foxx be 5'8.75 and that i'm pretty sure that would put their co-star they work with to be downgrade by 0.25-0.5'
RisingForce said on 10/Jun/17
Brigitte said Eddie was 5'9"-5'9.5", so I think the middle is right at 176 cm, but I'd bet on 5'9" before 5'9.5". Look at Eddie with 6'0" Nick Nolte. I'm not so sure about his shoes at times.
S.J.H said on 8/Jun/17
Honestly if going by listing. I can't see Foxx and Justin Long both under 5'9.25 and Eddie Murphy does look 5'9.5 like Brigitte Nielsen mention once.
RisingForce said on 6/Jun/17
Here's an example of why I still think he's closer to 175 cm than 176.

10 years ago, Jamie looked about as tall as he claimed to be, but no more: Click Here Click Here Click Here

If you give Ludacris a range of 172-173 cm then I'd say Jamie could look anywhere from 174 to 175.5 cm at that event(2006 Vanity Fair Oscar party)

Back in 2005, he's taller performing with 5'8" Kanye West: Click Here But not a lot taller. 5'9" looks about right there give or take.
RisingForce said on 26/May/17
I don't know if he ever actually looked as tall, but I have seen him look close, although I believe Tom is 1.5" shorter barefoot at 5'7.5". Tom looked within 1 cm in this recent pic, albeit with better posture: Click Here And consistently 2 cm max, maybe a half inch at the 2004 Ray tribute: Click Here Click Here Click Here The reason is probably Tom wearing lifts, since we know he does while there's no proof Jamie does and Tom forcing his posture more.
Peter175 said on 13/May/17
Agree with you but Tom never looked as tall as Jamie. Never. It's always a full inch at least, nearer 1.5 range
RisingForce said on 9/May/17
Parker, I agree with you. I usually only base my opinions on video and full pics. I'll note other pics with a grain of salt. As for Jamie, back in 2006, at the Miami Vice LA and UK premieres with both in dress shoes where Jamie looked identical in height to Colin Farrell, who I have at 5'9.5" and I mean quite a few full pics and video of the LA premiere still up. Craig can actually look near 179 cm there, which I think is in the arguable 177-179 range for him, but I'm pretty sure Craig wears lifts and his shoes do a look a bit dodgy there. I posted a pic on his page where he could look only 5'9.5" with Waltz, though I think he's 5'10" on the nose. Jamie does look pretty much exactly 5'9" there, which I think is the best guess for him. I know Rob has Hart at just 5'2" and I do think that's possible. Depending on the lean, Jamie looks 6-7 inches taller. As for Jamie, if you look at the old comments, it was common for him to be guessed 5'8.5" and admittedly, he could look under 5'9" 10+ years ago, but the last few years, Jamie often looks 5'9.5"-5'10", other than with Waltz where no more than 5'9" seems right. I checked tons of premieres of Foxx with Channing Tatum and while Tatum's posture can be problematic, I almost always saw 3" max, often not even. But Tom Cruise always manages to look close to Jamie and I figure he usually looks like a 5'8.5"-5'9" guy with lifts, plus, last year, Sly could look both taller and shorter in dress shoes, which implies they're close. Because of how Jamie looked years ago and because of how he looks recently, I have to leave open a wide range of arguable heights, anywhere from 174-177 cm is reasonable for someone to believe, imo, but with the apparent growth spurt still not explained(I haven't seen evidence he started wearing lifts) then I think Rob is right to list him a flat 5'9"/solid 175 cm range. I do think think there's a better chance of Jamie being 176 cm than Tom Hardy though and I'd say more likely 175-176 for Foxx than 174-175. Foxx and Waltz are some of the very few honest claims of men under 6 feet, imo.
Parker said on 5/May/17
@Rising, think it just goes to show you have to look a literally dozens of pics, and better still videos, to get the best height estimate as I'm sure Rob does. Christopher Waltz claim of 170 looks pretty reasonable

Click Here

Jamie looks 5'9 here against Waltz

Click Here

With Kevin Hart. Although Hart claims 5'4, I don't think he can be more than 5'3.
Click Here

I agree with your 5'9 estimate for Jamie. I'd guess him never shorter though. 5'9.25-5'9.5
RisingForce said on 29/Apr/17
I swear, sometimes, it seems like this guy has grown the past 5 years. Granted, he looks about 4" shorter than Channing Tatum in this one pic: Click Here But in most pics, if Tatum is 184 cm then Jamie usually looks 177-179 cm! Such as here: Click Here Tatum may be dropping more posture, but is it an inch more? And even more here where Jamie Looks about 5'11"! Click Here There's not a 2" posture difference. And Jamie looks 5'10" here: Click Here Tatum might be leaning slightly more, but in general, only in the first pic does Jamie look 5'9" max, in others he looks more 5'10" or so, sometimes taller. I don't see many calling for Tatum to be downgraded and I don't see any blatant evidence of lifts, yet back when Jamie did Ray, Miami Vice, Collateral etc., he usually looked 5'9" max and still looks that at times with DiCaprio, Cruise, Stallone and Christoph Waltz. But it's not just with Tatum that he can look taller the last few years. You can see the photos of Jamie looking taller than 5'9" Andy Garcia on Garcia's page. You can see Jamie looking at least 1", maybe 1.5" taller than Mario Lopez on Lopez' page. And now with 177-178 cm George Lopez, Jamie again looks taller: Click Here Maybe he has lifts in his sneakers, but a lot of times he looks taller than his claim lately and I don't notice anything with his shoes. Very strange, but then again, Rob saw Tom Hardy looking 5'10" in person.
RisingForce said on 6/Apr/17
I'm now more convinced he's the height he claims, but no more. With 180-181 cm Bruce Willis and 171-172 cm Tom Cruise: Click Here With Cruise that same night: Click Here Click Here Being reminded of this as well as seeing Foxx with Snipes, Don Johnson and here with 5'11" Leo: Click Here and here with 170 cm Christoph Waltz: Click Here shows he can look both taller than he claims and shorter. There's no reason for Rob to change the listing, imo since you could argue anywhere from 174-176 cm, but this has me suspicious that Foxx can look a legit 5'10". I never thought he was a lift guy, but maybe he does from time to time.
S.J.H said on 27/Mar/17
Real 5'9 can look 5'10. Foxx look 5'9.5 most of time. He maybe 5'8.5 barefoot and change

I was thinking he might not care about his height and be a bit over 5'9", but seeing him with Snipes makes me think he's another Tom Hardy, who can look taller, but mostly stands out for actually being as tall as they claim.

He appeared at least 5 11 onscreen tallest ive seen him look which is weird.
Ive always noticed foxx height is all over the place in regular shoes he looks average to low avg.
In collateral damage great movie he was barely taller than cruise and much taller than ruffalo.
Though I dont like a number of his roles I admit foxx is a very competent and sometimes good actor.
And what can I say he can pull off a pink shirt thats worth a good 10 points :#.
I think listing is right on no more no less just a fairly average build guy.
