So many clothes look so great on the rack and I put them on and they fit like a dress. I'm 5 foot 6.

I never cared about my height. All the actors I ever met were small. It's not really about being 6ft tall. It's about bringing joy.

He’s a little bit short but not tiny.

Classic downgrading comments on this post just calling him "tiny", he easily looks this height. In Scott Pilgrim he looked at least 5'5 1/2 in my opinion. Here's one example with strong 5'8 Mary Elizabeth Winstead, looking maybe 2.5 inches shorter accounting for posture: Click Here

In the photo with Aubrey Plaza here, who would be 5'8 in those heels, he honestly gives a full 5'6 impression, looking about 1.5 inches shorter than her (so subtracting footwear, he would be 5'5.5-5'6). I agree with Lee's comments here, I'll give him 5'5 3/4.

would have about 5cm on someone of 162cm easy
Leesheff1985 said on 29/Apr/22
I doubt he is as low as 5ft 5 flat. looks the listed height. Trust me. he'd be very close in height to me
Leesheff1985 said on 29/Apr/22
looks nothing under 5ft 5 1/2 beside audrey plaza who would be 5ft 8 in those 3.25inch heels. definitely not strong 5ft 4
Elroy said on 24/Mar/21
I’d downgrade an inch. I don’t think he’s 5’3” as noted but I can’t see 5’5” or more. My guess is a strong 5’4”, he’s a small guy.

I think I saw somewhere he was 5'7" he's got a similar height as me not 5'5".75 but more 5'5" and half type 166 cms

The full 5ft5 no taller , trust me

He doesnt look 5ft 4 this listing is correct he doesn't look tiny just short
Leno179 said on 16/Jul/18
I would say he is as low as 5'4, he looks very tiny even with his thick soles, and also the cloth fitting problems.
Slim said on 28/Sep/17
The full 5'5".
KH said on 20/Sep/17
Look at his comments. A legit 5'6 guy would have no problem finding clothes that fit properly. This guy is 5'4 range. I would question that he weighs 140lbs either. Im guessing 130lbs at most. He is not muscular or fat and very short.

Watching Rushmore and he looks tiny but he was only 17 at the time so I guess he could have grown a smidge.
Morris said on 3/Apr/17
160-165 cm (always without shoes)
Sebastian said on 26/Mar/17
This listing is dead on.
Zooey Deschanel is 5'5" and he looks only a bit taller than her in every single picture of them together.
Rachel said on 12/Feb/17
I'm 5'5 1/2" and I met him and he was at least an inch shorter, definitely not my height.
Luke said on 29/Sep/16
Personally I think He is 0.25/0.5in shorter than this list.
jon said on 19/Aug/16
Yh, Watched Rushmore and If anything I cant see him being as high as 5'5.5 or 5'6, I think 5'4 range seems more realistic, Bill Murray is a solid 6'1 back then so he would tower him and Olivia williams is a tall women 5'8 maybe 5'8.5 but I cant see Jason being close to 5'6.
Biz-mac said on 4/Oct/15
Rob if you had to guess how much he'd weighs, would it likely be around 140 lbs?
Editor Rob
I'd say jason's weight was roughly between 135 and 140 pounds.
Judd said on 22/Jun/15
Ron in rushmore (1998) Bill Murray describes him ad 5'3"
MD said on 20/Mar/14
Damon, in that particular picture, they look VERY similar in height.
9 said on 2/Nov/13
In Hotel Chevalier he looks very similar in height to Natalie Portman, maybe an inch taller. Most places list her as 5' 3". They are both barefoot in most of those scenes.
Elfoeraan said on 4/Sep/13
Click Here Jonah Hill looks about 5 cm taller than Jason Schwartzman, also Jason's shoes look very suspicious, it's quite vertical from above compared to Hill's shoes and look at those huge heels. Considering Johna Hill is 168 cm and taking in count that Schwartzmann isn't wearing any elevators or lifts in the pictures, which is highly doubtfull it's still impossible to see Schwartzman anything taller than 164 cm and that's being generous. You're way off on this one Rob!
Daniel said on 26/May/13
There are photos floating around of him with Seth Green, they're almost the same height (Schwartzman is maybe an inch taller). Also photos of him with Zack Galifianakis, who looks taller than Schwartzman by up to several inches.
Peso said on 24/Mar/13
I met him around 2003 when he was touring with Phantom Planet and he was no taller than 5'3". Unless he wears huge lifts now or had limb lengthening surgery, he's nowhere near 5'5.5"
Guy said on 13/Sep/12
um the 5'3 was just a joke though because Emile Hirch got called 5'3 in movies before as a joke.
sean said on 3/Dec/11
i think he is about 5'4"
There are a series of pictures of him standing next to 5'6" jonah hill, and he looks about 2" shorter
jim said on 4/Nov/11
Isn't there the possibility that he's grown a little from the 5'3" he was in Rushmore?
He was only 18 at the time after all.
SAK said on 18/Mar/11
Here is Jason Schwartzman, next to the tall Ted Danson(6ft2.5/189cm), a 9" difference.

Michelle said on 9/Feb/11
In Rushmore there is a scene where Bill Murray's character has to describe Jason's character to the cops. He said he was 5'3". I think that's pretty accurate because he's shorter then everyone else in the movie, even the girls.
5'7.37 said on 6/Jan/11
5'5 is spot on, he's towered by 5'11 Owen Wilson in The Darjeeling Limited.
catfromjapan said on 22/Dec/10
i've seen a lot of films featuring schwartzman, and 5 ft 3 really does seem like a borderline ridiculous estimate.
MissKit said on 10/Jun/09
I just watched shopgirl - great movie! I think he may be 5'5, as he was standing face to face with clare danes and she had heels on.. unless they put him on top of a box (they didnt show their feet!;)
Zoe said on 26/Oct/08
No way he is any taller than 5'5". Like anon said, he was described as being 5'3" in Rushmore when he was 18. Most people have stopped growing then, maybe he grew an inch but no way he got 2.5 inches taller after 18!
Roman said on 17/Oct/08
Jason is 5'3.5" I ran into him at the house of blues a few months ago and was taken back that he was the same height as I am, and I am 5'3.5" without shoes. We both had shoes on. I wanted to ask him where he gets his clothes but I was far to shy, I just said Hi.
anon said on 23/Jul/08
he was 18 in rushmore, he was described as 5ft3ins, doubt he's grown since then.
Aimie said on 31/May/08
He is the exact same height as Claire Danes without heels. She is somewhwere between 5'4'' and 5'5''.
leonari said on 19/May/08
this fella is 5'5"...
JonDoe said on 18/May/08
he's definetly not 5'6 because look at the height comparison between him and Owen Wilson and then look at the height comparison of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson,Ben Stiller is 5'6.Jason Schwartzman is more lik 5'4.
Anonymous said on 14/Mar/08
guessing 5'6 in the darjeeling limited
Brah said on 13/Mar/08
Why are people mentioning him being described 5'3" in Rushmore? He was only 15 years old or so in that movie. He grew since then.
leonari said on 12/Mar/08
ROB: "not dumb**** like you all " is not the politest fella... I mean his nickname gives a decent hint what he thinks of the posters of your site. But OK...
not a dumbs*** like you all said on 12/Mar/08
they probably marked him in the movie rushmore as 5'3" because he plays a grade schooler..and as for the people mocking his height, get over it. he's a very good actor and thats all that matters. losers.
Jane Smith said on 10/Mar/08
He is tottally 5' 5'' I mean i dated him i should no.
glenn said on 15/Feb/08
i hardly know what rushmore is.
sam said on 15/Feb/08
You've never seen Rushmore, Glenn?
glenn said on 15/Feb/08
i dont even know who he is.i know the name vaguely.
sam said on 15/Nov/07
Yes in Hotel Chevalier he, surprisingly, did look shorter than Natalie Portman, though he was barefoot and she was in heels. Also, in The Darjeeling Limited, he looked roughly half a foot shorter than Adrien Brody and Owen Wilson.

Rooco said on 27/Sep/07
After seeing Hotel Chevalier he seems no taller than 5'4". Portman is noticably taller than him in heels, big heels mind you, but she's pretty small. Just my $.02
dmeyer said on 20/Sep/07
i was biking and i saw him i couldnt say how tall but he is indeed a small men
Sabrina said on 6/Aug/07
I saw Jason open for his brother a few weeks ago. His new side project is really good and he's amazing to watch live. I've also met him a few times. one of the nicest people you will ever run into.
Jon Doe said on 2/Jun/07
Have people just forgotten who Jason Schwartzman is or something? How come no one has been commenting on this guy anymore?
Jon Doe said on 29/Apr/07
Okay maybe he is 5'4,this dude is awsome did anyone ever hear him sing or play drums before?
leonari said on 26/Apr/07
no way 5'5" cause first: Dustin Hoffman never was a full 5'6" and without any doubt aaproaching 70 years of age he lost a bit of height so HE is a max of 5'5" and he is taller than Schwartzman so how can Schwartzman be 5'5"? NO F...WAY: A strong 5'4 maybe even 5'4.5" but max!!
Jon Doe said on 25/Apr/07
Billy D if he was a good 4 inches shorter than Waris Ahluwalia who's you think is 5'9 then that would make Jason in fact 5'5.Plus in the movie "I Love Huckabees" he was only one inch shorter than Dustin Hoffman who is listed at 5'6 so I think 5'5 is dead on though I never met the guy.
erica danger. said on 3/Oct/06
hes for sure 5'4" -- im 5'5" and he was an inch shorter than me when i met him a couple of years ago!
Billy D said on 28/Jul/06
Jason can't be any taller than 5'5. He was clearly 2-3 inches shorter than Mark Wahlberg who's 5'8 listing might be just a tad generous. Better yet, look how short he is in Wes Anderson's American Express ad. He's a good 4 inches shorter than Indian actor Waris Ahluwalia who's only 5'9.
Dagger said on 26/Jul/06
Others here mentioned "Rushmore" which I just watched tonight, and although I didn't catch the mug shot thing, I'm think his police description was given out at "5'3" and "112 pounds"...I've seen him in many films and I don't know about 5'3, but I really can't see 5'5 either. I think this listing should be dropped to 5'4
tom said on 24/Jul/06
isnt his brother 5'8? ther are some pics of the standing next to each other and jason looks 2 inches down.
British Guy said on 19/May/06
Still see that this guy is at the advertised height...

I really think that he is shorter than this!! say 5ft 4in!!
Dagger said on 12/May/06
I think 5'4-5'5 is more accurate, he's pretty tiny.
trueheight said on 10/May/06
you kidding? he may have been young, but he had a 5o'clock shadow in Rushmore
leonari said on 2/May/06
barry please...guys are mostly finished growing at 18...If this guy is 5'7" , Stallone must be 6'3". Get real. where does it look that way? Huckabees? No way!
barry said on 28/Apr/06
he was only 17 or 18 when rushmore was made, and looked very small then, but, I'm sure he's grown since, and it even looks that way...I'd say 5'6" - 5'7"
trueheight said on 16/Mar/06
dunno if it was a gag, but in Rushmore he was dead on 5'3 in the police line-up
leonari said on 24/Feb/06
ROB this guy is tiny... 167 cm is at least 2-3 cm to much. Honestly don't you see that??
D. Ray Morton said on 23/Feb/06
Schwartzman and (ex?) girlfriend Zooey Deschanel are surely both shorter than their advertised heights (5'6" and 5'6", respectively.) They both look closer to 5'4".
trueheight said on 23/Feb/06
I know Mike Maronna thru a friend; i've visited him in the Jersey area. Never asked him about schwartzman but Maronna is 5-7 to 5-8, and in Slackers he was a good 3-4 inches taller than Jason. also in "Spun", Leguizamo was about 3 inches over,(but Leg had his ubiquitous boots on)
Joel said on 16/Oct/05
U watch the movie slackers, you'll notice how much shorter he is than the other guys. So yeah, by putting him just under 5'6 you're being generous, cause I'd put him at like 5'4.4"

By the way, I Heart Huckabees was really good.
leonari said on 10/Jul/05
British guy: THANK YOU MAN!!!! I'm myself 5'7" and honestly this guy looks sooo short wherever I see him...I think 5'4" is on the mark...
British Guy said on 9/Jul/05

You Have My Support,

I Myself Am Around 5ft 6in,

I Know For Certain That This Guy Is Shorter, Say 5ft 4in...
leonari said on 9/Jul/05
Yeah Rob you should put this guy down...Not 5'3" but no more than 5'4.5 to 5'5"...Really.
Anonymous said on 9/Jul/05
In Rushmore, there is a scene in which is is incarcerated and they mug him at 5'3. look for it, Rob. I wonder if there's any validity to it. Also, in the DVD extras it said he had to stand on a platform for a scene w/ his love interest because he was so short
