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.

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

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
Click Here

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
@Rising

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.

On the Graham Norton Show, he's looks no taller than Steve Carell (who I'm sure is 5'9 flat).

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?

Rob, have you watched Baby Driver ? how tall do you think he looks next to jon hamm ? he looks 5'10-5'11 to me.
Editor Rob: 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

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.

Whoa just watched law abiding citizen bad movie but interesting acting and height comparison.
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.

Even though he says 5'9 himself, I think he was rounding it down. 5'9.25 or 5'9.5 is a better listing IMO but I guess it's hard to know for sure. Can look 5'10 as well of course depending on footwear.
184.3cm (Night) said on 26/May/15
He really is just a 5'9 guy which is average and why many posters here think he is taller. Most guy's his height claim 5'10 or try for 5'11 even.
Crypto139 said on 25/May/15
Yeah it seems we have found our legit or go to guy for 5 feet 9 like 6 even for david duchovny. When a guy seems to always make people look shorter than their listings that is probably a sign he is pretty honest or could even be a 176 guy. Still he always does make people look not too tall. Maybe a legit 5 feet 9 is not all that small.

@Dan: Some might say modesty, I say honesty. In the end people will believe what they will believe, but this is a question I ask myself every time I see a new piece of some kind of evidence - and knowing that this is Hollywood stars we are talking about here: what's more likely? A few celebs claiming less than their real height, or a lot of celebs getting guessed over/claiming over their real height?
I salute guys like Jamie Foxx, Tom Hardy and Chrisoph Waltz for their honesty. Not saying there aren't other honest celebs out there, but those three I feel are the guys that most often get pegged as "modest" whenever compared to others who perhaps have given themselves a little extra with their claims. Thankfully it's usually down to a fractional discrepancy, which could be explained as difference in posture, more/less footwear, camera angles and so on (when looking at pics/videos) - at times it's enough to drive me mad...

If Serhman was standing correct , than Foxx would appear 5'9.5.

Met him in Vegas. I'm short, only 5'6", and he was barely taller than me (an inch at most). I was also in flip flops.

Lol Tunman, I've said the exact same thing! Dmeyer breaks this down into a science, and I love it, because it all ends up making sense! :)
176,2Tunman said on 15/Feb/14
dmeyer,since you saw him and thought he was 5'9-9.25 I definitely trust you. You are as good as rob to guess heights.I like your comments,it's almost like exact science.
Mr. R said on 11/Feb/14
Jamie is 5-8.5 He walked past me in Vegas one day. Rob, didn't you have him at this height?
[Editor Rob: he's been on 5ft 9 for a long while]
Lorne said on 9/Feb/14
He's no less than 175, and 176 is likely; 5ft9-5ft9.25. As usual Dmeyers sighting seems spot on :)
dmeyer said on 25/Dec/13
I met him i had thick boots That gave 1.8in He had 1inchers He looked 3in shorter than me 5'11.4-11.5 + 1.8in 6'1.2-1.3 So He was Solid 5'10-10.25 shoes on 5'9-9.25 Is right
Greg said on 15/Oct/13
He appeared to be about 5'8" when he was on Idol as a coach, a few years back. I would doubt 5'9".
Adamz said on 1/Oct/13
not under 5-9, instead probably 176cm
COOLGUY said on 11/Sep/13
He wears bigger heels sometimes. I would actually even say 5'8 in Collateral he barely was taller than Cruise.

Rob , now with waltz giving himself 170cm , what do you think is fair for him? I'd say a legit 5'9
[Editor Rob: maybe him saying 170 and foxx saying 5ft 9 matches up, both being honest]

Only thing missing now is Leo getting the 5'11 listing ;) 5 cm between Foxx and Waltz, 5 cm between Foxx and Leo, 10 cm between Leo and Waltz. At least that's what I'm consistantly seeing.

Well I just watched his season 1 episode 15 little "little red corvette" of the Jamie Foxx Show and in the episode he got arrested and booked and He had to take a picture next to the height scale and standing next to it it looked like he was about 5'8" or 9" and earlier in the episode I seen that he had on some boots called lugs and they give you about an inch to an inch and a half height addition so he may be 5'7.
Bud said on 11/Apr/13
He is very short and tiny,I stood next to him and my guess is approx. 5ft7in.It seems like everyone in Hollywood is small.I am not sure why this seems to be but I guess its for some reason or other.
Anonymous said on 23/Mar/13
guys i met him once and he's about slightly taller than i am... and i'm 5'7 with out shoes
KatFish said on 8/Mar/13
I'm watching The Soloist (again) & was shocked to see how close in height Jamie Foxx & Robert Downey Jr. are so I had to look it up... I always thought Jamie Foxx was about 5'11, but 5'8" seems more like it after seeing him next to RDJ. RDJ is another shockingly short leading man. I discovered just how diminutive after seeing him walking behind Nicole Kidman in the movie Fur while wearing slippers; No lifts, no elevator shoes & she, who's 5'11", was wearing flats & absolutely towering over RDJ who I would now speculate to be around 5'6". It just goes to show that Hollywood is amazing at fooling us because very few leading men are 6' or taller.

Why don't u upgrade him Rob?Are u suspicious over his footware?
The Horse of FUNK said on 25/Feb/13
"pumpkin says on 24/Feb/13
I saw him out at a club. I'm 5'8" and was towering over him."

So what you're saying is if Foxx and Joe Pesci were side-by-side, they'd be the same height?
MrX said on 4/Feb/13
I don't understand why criticize Jamie because he wears shoes with 3 cm's heels (or 3,5 cm). He claimed 175 cm as he is (maybe 174 cm but he didn't claim 178 cm!!!)so he is not a liar. So if he likes cowboys shoes is a personal taste!
What do you think Rob?
Teeb2 said on 1/Feb/13
I wear lifts so I'm sure others do too. I am just under 5 6 so with MY lifts I am about 5 7
MarcusTheSwede said on 28/Jan/13
Enought with the b.****.
Jamie Foxx is 174-175 at best. He is a notorious liftwearer and everyone that has met him say clearly 174 with shoes. So its generous to give him 175. This guy is 174 cm.Not more.
MrX said on 20/Jan/13
He looks exactly 7 cm shorter than Di Caprio so 175 cm is correct.

Tom said on 9/Jan/13
This seems to me like the most incorrect height on this site; he always seems taller than this. Watching Django unchained reminded me of this as comparing him to DiCaprio and Christoph Waltz he makes them, if his height was correct, seem 5'11 and 5'7 max. Just because he said he is 'like' 5'9 does not mean he is not taller than, dispite what some people believe which is that a man would never claim to be shorter than he is.
I think he is at least 5'10 and I wonder on which movies/pictures this 5'9 is based, besides what he himself claimed.
liz said on 5/Jan/13
Why does it seem like most of the best musicians and actors are shorter? You rarely see any taller people at the top. Is it they are just born more talented or is it they have to put up with stuff growing up and become way more talented then taller people?
Hew said on 30/Dec/12
Notorious liftwearer. Sadly nowhere near the 5'9 mark.
jamie foxx stage hand said on 27/Dec/12
He is 5ft6in and wears lifts like most of the actors in hollywood.he is the typical small guy not 5ft 9 or 5ft10.trust me he is 5ft 6 in barefoot
Duhon said on 26/Dec/12
Looks tallish in Django Unchained. Stands well next to Leo but he spends the film in cowboy boots.
Lebensdorf said on 9/Dec/12
He must wear lifts, or he's 5'10 if he doesn't. Oddly, in some pictures with Pres. Obama, Foxx actually looked taller. He looks at least as tall as DiCaprio in 'Django'.
Greenbolt said on 26/Sep/12
You all know that 5'9'' is average for an American man, right? This guy is 5'9'', no taller... this is just what a legit 5'9'' man looks like. I'd give him 5'9.25'' to be precise.
the shredder said on 28/Aug/12
He is has GOT to be taller or a lift wearer ?
the shredder said on 9/Aug/12
Rob , I really think he is down playing he looks more then just 175cm
the shredder said on 4/Aug/12
No way 175 unless he wears lifts .
Hullywood said on 3/Aug/12
He always looks 1.80m to me. Never short. Maybe 1.78, but not 1.75m.
MaskDeMasque said on 13/Jun/12
@LeBron

i reckon leo is 5'11 and foxx is about 5'9.25-5.

He looks like a legit 5'10" with 5'11.5" Leonardo Dicaprion in Django Unchained.

Saw Jamie on the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno". Jamie stood face to face with 5'10" Leno, and he looked exactly the same height.

Rob he seemed fairly even with Colin Farrell in Miami Vice. Would 176cm for Jamie and 177cm for Colin be closer?

If the wax figure inside madam tussauds is of true likeness, which I think they are because celebrities always pose beside their wax figures when they are first introduced to the museum, then Jamie foxx looks to be no taller than 5'7, 5'8 may even be a stretch. I was in flip-flops and I'm normally 5'6" in the morning of a well rested day and when I posed next to him his figure was at eye level, slightly taller. He's not a big guy, but very proportionately built.

i dont think that he is 5"9 i think he could be 5"10 flat. whenever he is with 6ft flat guys he seems only 2" shoter and when he was been interviewed by 5"11 nick canoon only looked an inch shorter than him i think he needs an upgrade rob.

He wears 2" lifts ;) He´s not more than 5´9", thats for sure, might be 5´8.5"...
Chris said on 5/Apr/11
I saw him at a pool party barefoot. I'm a little under 6'1" barefoot and I TOWERED over him. I'd say 5'7" honestly
STFU said on 21/Mar/11
He's 5'9''
Greek said on 28/Feb/11
edit: ok in this picture we can see he was wearing 2" shoes and possibly lifts that makes him taller than Lopez

Greek said on 28/Feb/11
This is one of the veeery few celebrities that they claim shorter than they look,either he has measured himself wrong or he wears lifts lately (but I doubt so).Either way he was confident enough not to upgrade his height, he easily looks taller. He appears in the 5' 10"-5'11" range preety usually, look at the following pictures with 5' 10" George Lopez:

Jamie looks 5' 11" Click Here


Same here, you can see the footwear Click Here


5' 11" here too Click Here

Ok here he looks taller but he is slouching Click Here

A tad shorter than 5"10 Colin Farrell in Miami Vice so around 176-177cm range

Foxx is the one 5'9" dude who never seems to look short. Really strong 5'9"..I think he could be marginally taller.

He may not be 5'7, but hes no taller than 5'8.

Well, the top of the head to the eyes is 4.5-5 inches, so you subtract from there.

Realme2008 said on 28/Jun/09
I think he has a tendency to look shorter, because he has a large build. He's 5'8" most likely, and 5'9" in a standard one-inch shoe.
J.J. said on 14/May/09
on the Tyra show he looked 5'10" in shoes so i think he is 5'9" but 0.5" extra is possible for Jamie
MD said on 30/Apr/09
One has to take into account Ryan's lifts when making comparisons. Foxx could still very well be a full 5'9", though, I've always felt he was closer to 5'8" than he was 5'9".
josh said on 30/Apr/09
i saw a picture of him and halle berry he dwarfed her either halle might not be taller than 5-3 or jamie foxx wqs wearing lifts
