Just LOL @ the 5'11" claim, he's 5'9" max, maybe even 5'8.5".

Hi Rob! At the beginning I would like to point out that my comment is not a provocation or anything similar, but I don't agree with the list of 5'9" for Leto, I could never see something like almost two inches between him and Matthew McConaughey:

There are also Jennifer Garner on these pictures, now look at her heels here:

I also sent Leto's photos alongside Till Lindemann, it's true that Till might have lost some height today but Leto next to him just does not look as short as a flat 5'9". Besides, Leto didn't look like something like over five inches shortet than Joel Kinnaman or four and a half inches shorter than Will Smith:

Look at him here next to Colin Farrell, if we take into account their hair I really don' see one inch difference between them:
You can see even more Leto photos alongside Will Smith:

I've watched Leto for a long time and I don't see him as only 5'9" especially next to people like Will Smith, Colin Farrell, Joel Kinnaman, Matthew McConaughey, Till Lindemann and Jennifer Garner. He looks more like 5'9.5" for me. Please, Rob, give him an upgrade to 5'9.5" or at least 5'9.25".
it's 50/50 on Leto, he is one of those who may well be 5ft 9.25, although his own claim of 5ft 11 seems impossible, or even 5ft 10.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Mar/19
5'9 and 3/8th inch exactly is how Leto looks with Jimmy Fallon.
said on 10/Feb/19
Rob 5'11 182cm peak is possible to him?
I just can't see it...the most I'd even attempt to argue is 5ft 10.
Jammes said on 10/Feb/19
@Kyle in Hollywood's mind the taller you are the more power you have and more you sell.
Even the 5'10 -6'0 actors will add a couple inches

Make no sense if Fallon listed 5'11 1/2 and Jared Leto still keeping 5'9. I would dare to say Fallon will be 5'11 flat to make Leto 5'9. Leto had an obvious 1cm less footwear than Fallon is this clip.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Dec/18
Looking at Leto next to 5'11 1/2 listed Jimmy Fallon i could see 5'9 1/2 not under. But more or less Fallon could be a 5'11 1/4 guy so Leto is not under 5'9 1/4.
Kyle 5'11 said on 10/Dec/18
What's up with every 5'9 guy claiming 5'11?
said on 3/Dec/18
Rob, how much do you think Leto weighed as Mark David Chapman in the movie Chapter 27? He was alleged to have put on more than 60 pounds, but it's not clear exactly what his starting point was.
Yeah I see he said he went up 67 pounds, so if he was 150-160 then 220-30
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Nov/18
Oh my, that's what I came up with this evening when comparing Jared with Brad Pitt in 'Fight Club', based on the assumption that Brad is 5ft11, which I strongly believe. However, he does look a weeny bit more than 2" taller than Christoph Waltz's 5ft7, so for that reason I would ideally go for an eighth of an inch over 5ft9, but I can't, so 5ft9 will have to do!
Rising - 174 cm said on 26/Oct/18
Waltz said himself he's 170 cm so that points much more to Leto being 175-175.5 cm. I thought he might be at least 176 cm myself, but then I saw him the same height as the Oscars as Stallone(currently 174, imo) while Leto had loafers that add about a half inch less than Stallone's dress shoes that night.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Oct/18
Waltz is 171cm so Leto can't be under 176cm.
berta said on 15/Sep/18
jared could be 176-177 guy, this is probably littel to low
Tod Charming said on 31/Aug/18
I am so suprised that he's listed as average! He so looks 5'11. I've always thought of him as a slim 5'11 dude. His claim makes me believe it even more!
Rising - 174 cm
said on 19/Aug/18
Leto does look 176 if McConaughey is even 179 and I doubt Matthew is below that and he looks it even if I'm right about Colin Farrell being just 5'9.5". But 5'9" flat actually looks spot on above if Waltz is the height he claims to be. Stallone also isn't above 5'8.5" these days and Leto looks about the same height with loafers that add maybe a half inch less than Sly's dress shoes: Click Here
So he really doesn't look 176 even if Sly is still the full 174. Jamie Foxx doesn't have a "false listing" as he's listed the height he claimed and the difference is Leto looked possibly a bit over 5'9" even years ago in Fight Club, iirc as opposed to Jamie's late "growth spurt." Both 5'9" and 5'9.25" are arguable for Leto so not surprising the average guess is right in the middle.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Aug/18
5'9 is impossible. 5'11 claim is more impossible. But Jared Leto always look between 5'9 1/4-5'9 1/2 and really make Matthew McConaughey look nothing over 5'10 if Leto still listed at 5'9 that is truely a false listing just like Jamie Foxx.
Rourke said on 12/Jul/18
Hmmm 5’9 1/4 looks perfect, looks too small in roles to be near 5’10 at all. 5’11 is absolutely mad ahaha
Harold said on 4/Jul/18
I think 175 is a bit low for him, I say he's around 176. Definitely needs a small upgrade
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Jun/18
5'10 way too high. Jared generally look a strong 5'9 1/4. I think he deserved a 1/4 upgrade just like Christoph Waltz.
Kyuss101 said on 7/Jun/18
Looks 5-10 imo.
said on 13/May/18
Jared did an interview with Ryan Seacrest a week ago, and here's the link:
00:26 he's standing straight beside Ryan. Assuming neither are wearing lifts, what would you guess his height is?
Maybe 3cm but since he had close to 1cm less sneaker you could argue a strong 5ft 9 range.

@Lori said on 23/Mar/18 Seriously if you don't know that. Tom is a lift wearer. Every male visitors knows that. Tom fools alot of women that he could look 5'8 but the truth he is much shorter than Jared Leto if put them barefoot. Tom is 5'7 and Leto 5'9.5".
with 5'11.25" Jimmy Fallon. 5'9.5" assurd for Leto.
Lori said on 23/Mar/18
And as someone on here pointed out, camera angles are used all the time in filming movies especially if one of the primary actors is noticeably shorter than the other cast members. This is especially true with male actors. When Tom Cruise was married to Nicole Kidman the story goes that Tom didn't like Nicole to wear high heels because she is 5'11" and he didn't like her appearing taller than he did and he supposedly always wears lifts in his shoes. If you will notice when people are walking the red carpet the camera people will film at certain angles when they are shooting the actors up close versus at more of a distance when the person is being shot full frame. Oh, the magic of Hollywood!
Lori said on 23/Mar/18
Average men's shoes add 1-2" of height which makes them appear taller. Tom Cruise is said to be 5'9" but looks shorter than Jared but Tom also has a stockier build than him. A slimmer physique can make a person appear taller.
Heightrer said on 25/Feb/18
The noticeable height increases are heels, lifts or just general thick insoles.
said on 24/Feb/18
Rob how can someone 5ft9 look like this next to a 6ft1 guy?
Can someone explain please.
Leto at times has looked a 5ft 9.5 guy, Will at times can look 6ft with loose stances.

Here is Jared without elevators. 173 cm
Jake94 (5'9 said on 14/Jan/18
I'd give him 176. I think he'd edge out most guys listed as 5'9" on this site.

Short for a white guy
Lmao, robs got him underlisted a few Cm, he’s 177 Cm, that’s not short lmfao. Are you from another world by any chance?
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 29/Dec/17
A 5'9" guy getting called short shows how much 5'9" is devalued. It's a completely average height, not short at all.
John said on 26/Dec/17
@dd You are obviously nowhere near 5'9 if Leto was several inches taller than you. Leto is 5'9.25 at most
randomuser said on 25/Dec/17

dd said on 19/Dec/17
Stood next to him at the Larchmont Farmer's Market.
I'm 5'9", and this guy was noticeably a couple of inches taller than me (without the aid of any particular footwear).
He is at the minimum 5'10" without a doubt.
Anonymous said on 11/Dec/17
175 cm or 175,5 cm at day.
jjj said on 7/Dec/17
He doesn't look 5'9 to me - not a flat one anyway. For someone who manages to appear taller than Matthew McConaughey in boots, i can't really see him being nearly 2 inches smaller as then they would be lifts. I honestly think 5'9.75-5'10.25 is fair.
Junior said on 20/Nov/17
176.5cm is absolute min for Leto. If Pitt is 180cm and McConaughey 179.5-180cm then Leto had to be 177cm.
Slim 185 said on 18/Nov/17
SPOT on @junior, even @Del Mar said during fight club pitt didn’t have 5 Cm on Leto but rather 3 tops.
Junior said on 9/Nov/17
I can't see 4.5cm listing between Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto. I wonder if Leto is more like 5'9.5" and McConaughey 5'10.5". Matthew McConaughey can only look easy inch on Leto.
said on 6/Oct/17
Jared Leto next to Joel Kinnman (6'2) both flat footwear Click Here
: Looks like 7 7/8 difference. Jared is 5'8 .
Ed Kline said on 4/Oct/17
Looks 5'10ish to me.
Chris said on 30/Sep/17
Jimmy Fallon wears lifts, pn that occasion with Jared Leto he wasn't though, Jimmy Fallon i am pretty sure is 180cm flat, Jared leto is a strong 5'9
Guest66 said on 30/Sep/17
trp, Maybe he wouldn't tower over him simply because 2.5in is not enough for "towering" ? Plus, there's a chance of Fallon being closer to 5'11 flat and Leto being a bit over 5'9. So here you go, they might be just 2in apart, and 2in is never "towering".
said on 29/Sep/17Click Here
Wouldn't a 5'11.5" Jimmy Fallon tower over 5'9" Jared Leto?
Jared's only wearing checkerboard slip on vans, so how could he measure up so well to him?
Edimar1.84 said on 28/Sep/17
I see 5ft10 in the picture.
FrankBurns said on 28/Sep/17
Just watched him on Name That Song with Jimmy Fallon. Fallon was discernibly taller than Leto. Given that, I would give Leto 5' 9" or 5' 10" to account for differences in heels...
Slim 182 cm said on 28/Jul/17
Another good listing, 176 upgrade is needed.
Slim 182 cm said on 19/Jul/17
Agreed, Letos a decent 5'9.5.
Del Mar said on 18/Jul/17
Btw I base my estimates on pics with Jared and M. Mcconaughey, mostly Jared look only 2-3 cm shorter, even in flats when Mcconaughey is in dress shoes. Google it, it's quite obvious. Also in Fight Club he looks a maximum 3 cm shorter than Pitt in all scenes, and Pitt usually have doc martens 'ish shoes in that one. By that time I don' t believe Jared was a big enough name to have any lifts in his shoes either, so Pitt should have the advantage
Del Mar said on 18/Jul/17
Slim, I'm with you on 1.76, 1.77 absolutely highest. 1.78 seems too much and never ever above that. I remember him listed at 5'9.5" at some point, and I could believe it. 5'9.25" would be my guess though
Slim 182 cm said on 18/Jul/17
@Del Mar, I could shake with you on 5'9.5, but 5-6 cm between bale and Leto is weird... but not impossible.
So what's it gonna be?
Slim 182 cm said on 17/Jul/17
Del mar, 177/178 for Leto is a bit too high man, he isn't above 6 cm taller than waltz imo. 175, 176 max Our friend Leto is.
Gina said on 17/Jul/17
Shannon is 5"9 and Jared is taller than Shan
Del Mar said on 11/Jul/17
Slim 181,I dunno about that, several people have considered him at pushing 5'11 with low sneakers,although I find that too much. But I could believe him to be slightly above 5'9. Don't think he wears boots in Fight Club, wouldn't be any reason to. Still he seems only one inch lower than Pitt, who is generally in boots and heeled dress shoes
even said on 8/Jul/17
hes right hes a legitimate 5'11" minus 2 inches
Slim 181 cm said on 5/Jul/17
5 ft 8.75, Jared wears lifts all the time especially trying not to look like a shrimp next to 5"11+ listed guys like bale, pitt, meat loaf and norton in the cult films fight club and American phsyco.
If it weren't for those elevators while norton bashed Leto in fight club the height difference would have been huge!
Slim 181 cm said on 27/Jun/17
Del Mar, Leto likes his big footwear, he's matched up to 5'11.25-5'11.5 DiCaprio! Letos only 5'8.75-5'9
Del Mar said on 20/Jun/17
In Fight Club, he looks about an inch shorter than Brad Pitt, whom again look Nortons height for some reason, but lets put them both at 5'11" for the movie at least (Norton slouch), I would pin Leto at 5'9.75" at the lowest
Slim 181 cm said on 14/Jun/17
Either he wears big shoes or he deserves a slight upgrade.
Leighton said on 25/May/17
I wouldn't give him more than 174 judging by pics of him with margot robbie and cara delevingne.
Jordan said on 20/May/17
Looked a solid inch taller than 5'8.5 Ralph Macchio. 5'9.5 for me.
Fredo said on 30/Apr/17
Considering the pictures here, if Waltz is really 1.70 and Mathew McConaughey 1.83, I'll give Leto 1.77.
delancey said on 28/Apr/17
Federico said on 18/Apr/17
I've met him in 2014. He was wearing sneakers with no-place for hidden heels. I'm 185cm and he looked like solid 5'10 5'11" to me. His posture is perfect. I got a picture together and he still looks like that height
diveroli said on 18/Apr/17
I have heard he's 5ft9.75 (177cm)
Rhonda said on 15/Apr/17
5ft8.5 , 140lbs max 148 with his clothes and shoes maybe, his height claim is no doubt with some big lift shoes. In Suicide Squad he is hardly much taller than Margo Robbie.
Fred said on 1/Apr/17
I met him while he was wearing sneakers and he looks 5'11" as claimed. I'm 6'1"
S.J.H said on 19/Mar/17
Jared leto is not taller than 5'8.1 rob. I'm absolutely sure about it. Just 5'8 would be his true height
Chris said on 7/Mar/17
Jared Leto 100% wears lifts, but he doesn't always wear them, hence his height always varies, there is solid proof of this, look at how his height varied on the Ellen show, he TOWERED over her in his first time, then after his Oscar win, barely looked taller than her (wearing very flat footwear).
said on 7/Mar/17
No he didn't become tall at all. Just camera angles deceived you.
Have a look at those pics.
It's a common technique to make someone look taller than s/he actually is.
said on 4/Mar/17Click Here
At first photo. We can see 10cm difference with Val Kilmer(182cm)
but at second only 2cm difference with Val Kilmer(182cm)
same height with Cameron Diaz (173cm)??!
same height with Uma Thurman (181cm)??!
Also some time ago he preferred to date with short girls(Emilia Clarke-157cm) (Scarlett Johansson-160cm) (Soleil Moon Frye) - 155cm, but nowadayas he prefers to date with models, maybe he did surgery on his legs?

said on 12/Jan/17
Rob can you add Chino Moreno from Deftones? He's said to be 5'9. Also Jared Leto and Chino are performing in this video together. They look very similar in height. Can't quite see their footwear though. Around the 4:53 mark.
Josh Jeffords said on 6/Jan/17
Looks 5 8 especially with is skinny build and that's in shoes.
Reminds me of a 5 6 dude I knew told everyone he was 5 8 I towered him.
Obviously the smallest joker minor pun intended.
Even Ethan hawk looks big by him give me a break weak 5 8 tops.

I'm 174cm/5'8.5" barefoot in evening and he looks very slightly taller than me in barefoot photos. I would say 176cm/5'9.25"
Maxus said on 27/Nov/16
5ft. 8.5in, no more
Hollywood Insider. said on 22/Nov/16
Mr. Leto is 5,9 1/2 in the morning without shoes.He dips down to 5,9 at night without shoes. The rest all just depends on the footwear it could vary from 1 inch to to an inch and a half depending on the style of shoe.
Sandy Cowell said on 18/Nov/16
A handsome young scamp this one! He was also in 'Girl Interrupted', playing Winona Ryder's boyfriend!
I've just read above that he has said he's 5ft11 - well poppycock to that! He's 5ft9.5 at the most! He made Christian Bale look taller than 6ft in 'American Psycho' and he looks quite undersized in 'Fight Club' compared to many of the others!
I like his acting and his filmwork, and it is much to his credit that I didn't recognize him in 'Panic Room' the first time I saw it because he played
a completely different type of role AND he looked and sounded like I'd never seen him before! I was impressed and amused to find out it was Jared! I think the long hair suited him!
Even so, he still looked of rather average height in that film! Sorry mate!
said on 19/Oct/16
Robs, what's the deal with this guy? He looked same height as glenn in their photo, in your YouTube video you list him as 5'8-5'9 yet you have said he pulls off near 5'10 some times and he wears converse a lot so he doesn't wear lifts... he looks about the same height as Mcconaughey who is supposedly almost 5'11 or even a hair taller sometimes. How can he look anywhere from 5'8 to 5'11(which he claims) without lifts??
Editor Rob: in some photos he might just be maximum posture, the other guy an inch off his maximum...the fact a sub 5ft 7 guy like G didn't think he was 5ft 10 goes to show he maybe has an extra trick up his sleeve.
said on 17/Oct/16
Rob, why is he taller than Mathew McConaughey?
said on 6/Oct/16
Seems like most think he is under 5 ft 9. I think he can pull off 5 ft 10 , but he's not.
Editor Rob: there's only 8 guesses, I think you need more than 30-40 to get a general idea.
S.J.H said on 21/Sep/16
I'm optimistic that big G wore big boots that given 1.6-1.7' look close to jared with roughly an inch sneakers or something added that jared slouch standing a side facing bad angle. If G stand the way jared stand and same footwear he did look 1.5' shorter. I think jared is only 5'8 barefoot

He looks between 5'6 and 5'7.

Mklove said on 5/Aug/16
2007 watched 30 seconds to Mars live and on stage even when he was standing closest to rest of the audience he still looked shorter than the guitarist and bassist and when he came down and security escorted him and held him by the belt when singing with the front row people he was still shorter and the event security guards made him look tiny.
MD said on 3/Aug/16
He was on Jimmy Fallon, last night, and I was a bit surprised at how much smaller he looked than the 5'11.5" Jimmy Fallon. Though, this is still assuming Jimmy doesn't wear lifts.
said on 2/Aug/16
Hey Rob, this guy is tricky in my opinion. Even the pic above is not so clear: look at the shoes of Waltz and then move on Leto's, the instep is visibly higher than Waltz. At least an inch inside. What do you think?
Editor Rob: half inch lifts aren't huge, but they can be used in shoes and many wouldn't be able to tell.
Heighter said on 30/Jul/16
I think the magic number is between 173 - 174 Rob.
175 if we're including the tallest hair on his head.

5,10 with shoes. Wakes up at 5,9 1/2. Dips down to 5,9 at nite with out shoes. Thst is it. At best in the morning could be in the 5,10 1/2 with shoes. Sometimes he put on the big back boots now those can put him at 5,11 that's why he claims 5,11.
We are done here!
Your welcome :")
Editor Rob: unless he wears lifts...
which might be unlikely given the style of shoe he has worn at times.

Do you think Leto could be 5'9.5? I mean, he looks about 5'9 with Waltz in the photo above, but he doesn't really seem 2 inches shorter than these supposed to be solid 5'11ers
Click Here Click Here
I would have thought that he wears lifts, but if he is wearing converse sneakers a lot, then it doesn't make sense that he'll wear lifts...
Editor Rob: he can pull off 5ft 9.5 at times yes.
said on 15/Jun/16
Rob, his shoe has a really big buldge at the front here. That means he wears lifts here right? Click Here
Editor Rob: there's not enough to really tell from that shot, would be hard to say if he wore any lift or not.

Anything under 5ft 9 is too low for him IMO. He pretty much always looks 175/176cm

My 15 year old cousin is 5''9 and took a pic with him and Jared looked a lot shorter than him and my cousin is wearing flat converse shoes and has a lanky posture.
Chris said on 18/Apr/16
Priscillq - Shannon Leto (his brother) is really really small. I'd say he's about 5'5. I think that's the reason people assume Jared is tall (he does look tall in certain photos). Because he looks big compared to his brother!
Chris said on 18/Apr/16
Take a look at some pictures of Leto, with Leonardo DiCaprio (6 foot tall)..........Leo towers over him. I'd give him at least 4 inches on Jared Leto. I seriously think even 5'9 is too generous.
Chris said on 18/Apr/16
I laughed when I saw his claim that he is 5'11........Jared Leto is really small. I met him once after a 30 Seconds to Mars show in late 1990s, and he was about the same height as me (5'8). I think even 5'9 is generous. I'd say he was a solid 5'8 but nothing more.
Priscillq said on 17/Apr/16
I'm 5'7 3/4 and met his brother once and I was taller than him by a few cm , I think Jared is 5'9 max

No where near 5'10 He is about 5'8 half.
Del Mar said on 10/Apr/16
He can look taller sometimes. In Fight Club he mostly looks only an inch shorter than 5'11 Brad Pitt, but I guess 5'9 is correct
Joey. said on 29/Mar/16
He's a solid 5'10 with shoes,depending on the Footwear he can be a bit taller. So whether he's 5'9 or 5'11..who cares he is an incredible person, that's what matters.

People are we talking about how tall he looks with shoes on or off? because people are saying he looks 5 feet 8.5 inches. He has shoes on remember. He may look 5 feet 8.5 inches with shoes but without shoes his physical height is 5 foot 7 inches. So I will say Jared Leto is 5 feet 7 inches.

175cm, look at how Forest Whitaker dwarfed him. 175cm no more
BT said on 29/Jan/16
He looks 5'9.25 with Waltz, and he can pull that off quite often I'd say, but 5'9 is a fair shout.
CharlyB said on 28/Jan/16
leto seems more like 1,76 or 1,77 his brother shannon is 1,70 max
James C said on 10/Jan/16
If christopher waltz stood up straighter his eyes would match jared letos nose or an little higher, he's actually losing an little height in the photo, and his head is an little under his hairline.
said on 13/Dec/15
Rob, what age does a man start to lose height? Jared leto 44 at the moment and seems like he'll be losing none anytime soon. Do all people lose height as they get older?
Editor Rob: a tiny percentage might lose only a fraction by their 70's, but the average will be about an inch for males and nearer to 2 inches for females by 70's.
Wear and tear and disc damage could always lead to earlier loss. From 40 to 50 males will tend to lose only a small fraction - most won't realise they have lost anything because it is literally that - maybe a fraction.
Goose said on 31/Oct/15
I was about 15FT away from him at the Vail
Airport in 2003' (he was boarding the flight with Cameron Diaz and a few friends). I'm a weak 5'10 (at night w/no shoes) and he is definitely 5'9 - no more no less. Thin build but not skinny.
said on 10/Oct/15
Rob what you think is his morning height?
[Editor Rob: at times Leto could pull off over 5ft 9...but I feel around 5ft 9 is ok for him and nearly 5ft 10 out of bed.]
Brett said on 4/Oct/15
He could look 5'10 on my so called life
Alex said on 30/Jul/15
Sharon Leto is like 5'6
said on 26/Jul/15
No taller than 5'9.5. See this picture standing next to Val Kilmer listed at 5'11.5 and he looks several inches shorter in "normal" footwear: Click Here
As he became more and more famous he "grew" taller as did guys like RDJ.

what do you think is up his brother shannon ?
[Editor Rob: he claimed "Hahaha no I'm 5 feet 9 inches with heals 6 ;)"
but, he looks shorter than Jared.]

5"9 without shoes 5"10 with shoes. That's his height.
kalum said on 14/Jul/15
And @Mat 5'10 I had a teacher who was 6'5 and wore a size 7 shoe and my dad who is 5'9 wore a size 8
kalum said on 14/Jul/15
"Mat 5'10 says on 6/Jun/15
Rob, isn't a shoe size 11 big for a 5'9 man? Do you think he could be lying about that too?"
I have a mate who's 5'7 and wears a size 12 shoe. I also have a mate who's 6'7 and wears a size 12 shoe and a mate who's 6'1 and wears a size 12 shoe. I also have a mate who's 5'8 and wears a size 8 shoe and a mate who's 6'4 and wears a size 11 shoe and I have a mate who's 6'0 and wears a size 8 shoe, and a mate who's 6'0 and wears a size 13 shoe. I am 6'6 and I wear a size 15 shoe. You see how shoe size really doesn't correlate with shoe size, same with hand size. One of my mate's who's 6'1 has about a 7.5" hand and my dad who was only 5'9 had about an 8.5" hand.

I just met Jared during his european tour. Hes gorgeous but lets talk about heights, Im 168 cm and when he hugged me for a photo he was clearly shorter than my boyfriend who is a solid 175 cm. I estimated around 173 which was obvious from the pictures I took. We were both in sneakers about 1 inch tall. He is nonetheless stunning in person

He's 5'9, he wears lifts on and off hence his varying height, MM was taller, a so as every other 5'10-6ft person, only time he racks is when he's wearing his boots with 2 inch lifts. His slim build can make him look 5'10. Overall he's 175cm
JD. said on 18/Apr/15
okay I'm going to be honest, I've met Jared leto twice and he is a solid 5"10 1/2 with shoes.
he stood face to face with me and I'm 5 10 exactly. he either was half an inch taller or just a hair taller than me. that's why he can claim 5 11 depending on his footwear.
JD. said on 18/Apr/15

184.3cm said on 19/Mar/15
Look at the pic on this page, the gentleman next to him is self confessed 170cm (5'7). Do you see 4 inches there? His eyes come to Jared's nose a solid 2 inch difference. Good listing.
bob said on 18/Mar/15
if he says he's 5' 11" then he's 5' 11"... None of you have ever met him, so what's your word against his. And besides, next to james franco, who is 5' 11", he is the same height
Alex said on 18/Mar/15
He looks 5'11 in requiem for a dream I think it's an honest claim maybe 5'10 without shoes

Shawn said on 22/Feb/15
Fair enough Rob. My personal guess is he wakes up at 5'9", and dips to 5'8.5" during the day.
You think he's occasional lift-wearer too? I wouldn't put it past him. He seems very appearance-conscious.
said on 18/Feb/15Click Here
This is a confirmed 5'6.5" man standing next to Leto. Even accounting for footwear advantage, it makes it hard to believe anything beyond 5'8.5" for him. And Rob, I normally wouldn't link to photos of G, but I wanted to make an exception for this one, as Leto seems to be one of the more elusive heights around here, and here we have a photo of him standing right next to, in equal posture, someone you've obtained an exact measurement of.
[Editor Rob: remember he is also beside Karate kid
, I think 5ft 9 is ok for him.]
said on 3/Feb/15
LoL, I don't know. A half-decent pair of elevator shoes costs between $200-300 minimum, and I remember G remarking on quite a few occasions he wasn't exactly bleeding money.
G pic aside, I'm not convinced Leto is anything above 5'9", and not a strong one at that.
[Editor Rob: well I think we can agree 5ft 11 is a huge stretch for leto, he seems to be calling that height in cowboy's.]
said on 2/Feb/15
Shawn, never trust a photo with G. He was probably wearing 2 or 3 inch lifts.
[Editor Rob: G said to me, with his hand on his heart that he only wore lifts on days that ended in a 'Y'.]
said on 1/Feb/15
Rob, I don't know if you've saved it, but you should go through your collection and see if you saved the "G & Leto" pic. The difference between them was minimal, if any. I distinctly remember even Glenn being "shocked" as he was expecting Leto to be taller.
I lump Leto in the same category as guys like Stallone, Depp, Gibson, Farrell, Damon, etc. All strong 5'8"/weak 5'9" guys that try to get away with claiming 5'10"+.
[Editor Rob: he might just have caught him with slightly lower pavement.]

Rob can you add a photo and add Fight Club, Mr. Nobody, American Psycho, Alexander and Lonely Hearts?
Arch Stanton said on 27/Jan/15
148 lbs on 5'11 would look thin but not quite Leto skinny. Beckham during his playing career was about that. Steve Vai at 6'1 and 150 pounds is proper skinny.
MD said on 26/Jan/15
Tunman, I think the fact is that if he's really that weight, there is no way he's 5'11" given how thin that would look. I'm 5'11" and 143 lbs, myself, and as thin as Leto is, there is no way he's as tall as 5'11" if he's 148 lbs. If that's his actual weight, as Shawn said, it'd be very hard for him to be above what he's currently listed.
Tunman said on 24/Jan/15
@Shawn at 5'9.5 I never exceeded 143-4 Lbs and never went under 127.I can imagine many guys being as thin as that but that's quite rare I admit.
Actually many sportsmen especially long distance runners and some cyclists could that thin,but yeah,it's pretty thin on an average person with normal activity.
Julian said on 21/Jan/15
@juan Zedd is claiming 177 cm. He doesn't look 177 cm, though!
Kourosh said on 15/Jan/15
Julie then you are not 5'10.
Shawn said on 26/Dec/14
Rob looked taller next to Glenn than Leto did. I won't give him anymore than 5'9", and a weak one at that. Does anyone realize how skinny 148lbs would look on someone who genuinely was 5'11"?
julie said on 21/Dec/14
once i was standing right next to him and he was actually a bit taller than me. i'm 5'10.
marcus said on 25/Nov/14
Haha 5'11 is a height that no one honestly claims in hollywood, if your 5'11, you claim 6ft, if your 5'9/5'10 you claim 5'11. Jared leto is an example of that.
marco said on 25/Nov/14
Not over 5'9. I think he's a weak 5'9.
184.3cm said on 25/Nov/14
5'9 guy claiming 5'11 ..He doesnt look anywhere near 6 foot which a 5'11 guy can pull off at times. Also judging by photo his size 11 shoe claim is off as well. I wear size 11 UK shoes 46 here in Europe and i always get comments from people about having boat feet. Looks typical average range 5'9-5'10 .
said on 23/Nov/14
5'9 but he doesn't always wear lifts, like someone said in the comments hence height is always varying. If chester bennington of linkin park is 5'10, then leto is no more than 5'9 . Every picture with him he's an inch shorter. Here's a recent one, both wearing similar footwear(shoes with a 1 inch heel)
marcus said on 19/Nov/14
Am i the only who remember that leto himself claimed 5'8 a few years ago? He certainly wears lift, im positive if that hence his varying height(he doesn't wear them all the time) he can really look a weak 5'9 but i'd give him 175cm
max said on 7/Nov/14
Idk man, if you are 6'1, you are a tall guy, a 5'9 guy could look 5'10 etc, like i said im a weak 5'10 and he was shorter than me by an inch, he does have great posture so he can pull off a 5'10 look
Federico said on 20/Oct/14
@Max, he was wearing slippers. I could send you my pict with him
chrisssss said on 19/Oct/14
Davie havock and chester bennington are both 5'10 and were taller than leto by an inch
marco said on 19/Oct/14
There two interviews with leto on ellen, one before the oscars, and one after he won, now this is proof he wears lifts, the interview before the oscars, he wore open boots with 2inch lifts and he was a good bit taller than ellen, however the second interview after the oscars, he wore normal loafers and he was SIGNIFICANTLY shorter, he was slightly taller than ellen(2inches max) leto is 5'9 at best
max said on 19/Oct/14
@federico he wears lifts bro, im 5'10 (177) and when i saw them in florida 3 months ago with LP and AFI he was 2-3cm shorter than me! He definitley wears, his height always varies, chester benington(178cm) was taller than him as well
Federico said on 10/Oct/14
I've just met Jared Leto here in Argentina. I'm 6'1" and he was like 5'11" like he claims. He has an impecable posture and a small frame body. I don't know if you've ever met him, but definitely he's not 5'9"
said on 5/Oct/14Click Here
Leto with 6ft (what he claims himself) photographer Terry Richardson. Having seen Terry with 5ft5.5 > 5ft6 "Flea" from CHilli Peppers I'd say Terry is a weak 5ft11 and not 6ft. Click Here
This would make Leto a weak 5ft9 to mid-strong 5ft8 in my opinion. Click Here
Ai said on 25/Sep/14
Saw him last week at a linkin park/30 seconds to Mars concert - he did some autograph signing and I say he's around 5'11 with shoes - probably 5'9.5 without , definitely more than 5'9 and less than 5'11 .
said on 8/Sep/14
Rob don't you remember the pic of Jared Leto and G? They looked right around the same, now even if Glenn was in those boots that still leaves a 5'8-5'8.5 Leto. Guess he forgot his lifts then.
[Editor Rob: I believe G may have been a little nearer the camera, but it's a long time since I seen it, a girl who claimed 5ft 6 sent a photo once and he looked about 5ft 9 with her.]
Can't figure it out. said on 19/Aug/14
How can he be as tall as Andrej the model. Her stats are 6'2. And yet he looks 6 foot next to her? Not hating or anything on jared hes a cool dude and does his thing. But just general curiosity.
Y said on 6/Aug/14

Someone in the thread was asking for the pic of Jared with Cameron Diaz where he's barefoot. There's this one. There's a slope advantage to him but he's still waaaaay taller than her. Even if she's 5ft8 not the 5'9 she claims he's still got several inches on her, I'd say.
For the record (stay with me) my choir were recently getting ready to perform and our choir leader was making us line up in height order. I would have sworn blind I had two inches on this guy but everyone else said he was actually a couple of inches taller than me. Its really hard to work out who is taller when you're standing next to someone. So people who've stood next to him in a bar and thought they could guess his height could be wrong.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Apr/14
He's so skinny though. He's built kind of like I was at 17 and he's approaching what, 45?
luke said on 8/Apr/14
I met him a week ago. I'm 5'8.5" and he was definitely more than an inch taller than me

listing seems accurate
imo he seems a high-end 5-8 or a weak 5-9 barely
hurricane brat said on 4/Mar/14
should probably add Dallas Buyers Club to his bio Rob. Considering he won an oscar for that.
FM said on 3/Mar/14
Seeing him at the Oscars last night, made me see him as someone on the shorter side. I think he is someone who doesn't always have great posture, and wears strange footwear - making look just shy of Mathew McConaughey at times, and at others several inches shorter.
I think he is 5'9", but wouldn't be surprised if he was close to 5'8". To me, he always reminded of having a similar height/build to Johnny Depp. Both are listed at 5'9" on this site, but I think both are probably closer to 5'8".
MD said on 24/Feb/14
Seeing as how we've gotten Jared's height pretty close, perhaps that was a better picture to put on Joe Jonas' page. Because, very obviously, Jared is not 6'0", not even close.

When I saw him at the Vail Airport in 2003 (he was on my plane to LAX and was with Cameron Diaz) he had an inch on her. Don't know her height but I'm a weak 5'10 and he seemed to
be a smidge under 5'9.

IMO both he and McConaughey deserve Best Actor awards at the Oscars. No way was the performances better in 12 years a slave.
said on 22/Jan/14
He's got a very good chance of winning Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars this year, he was terrific in Dallas Buyers Club, that#s why he's shot up to 5'11 :-] Barely 8 stone in that film and probably a 24 inch waist or something LOL. Yeah he can look a weak 5'9" agreed.
[Editor Rob: not seen it for a long time but I am sure he was a few inches smaller than michael rosenbaum in urban legends in a scene they had in a house party or something...]

It's guys like Leto where I wish we still had Glenn's pics. I still remember it clearly... barely an inch on Glenn. Assuming G had footwear advantage, he's 5'8.5". Even G stated 5'9" for him.
tony said on 21/Dec/13
Having looked at some photos with him, now I doubt if he is 5'9. 5'8.5 seems to be true.

cole said on 25/Jun/13
A friend of mine who's 6'4.5 met Leto in Norway yesterday, and he seemed a good 5'9 or maybe even a bit taller in that photo, can't see their footwear though, I thought he might have worn a boot or something whilst my friend allways wears converse. Leto was a bit over the top of his nose. He's 5'9 minimum for sure.

Looks 5'9" but can't be much more than 140 pounds usually. and not an ounce of fat on him. Bodyfat usually near 6% but this weight loss for his role in McConaghy's film is insane. I can't imagine how long you'd have to go without eat to have that waist, its shocking.

I was an extra in a movie eventually called "Highway" in '99, which Leto starred in. I had a chance to be right next to Leto with non-raised shoes, on concrete. I am 6'2", dead even..and I had 6 inches on him, easy enough. He's 5'8", no more.
