Think he's more 5'7 1/2 like Robert Downey Jr. His 5'10 claim is laughable. Not to menition standing on his toes.

Looks a solid 2 inches shorter than 5ft 9.25 Jamie fox so I’m going with 5ft 7.25 nighttime height which is a quarter inch taller than my nighttime height of 5ft 7 flat

@ Guitargeorge - "Check out Guitar George - he knows all the chords!"

Yes, I remember that comes from a Dire Straits song; Mark Knopfler, 183cm, is sorely missing a page!

Jeremy Piven gets 5ft7.5.
MaskDeMasque said on 22/Feb/21
5'7.5. I think him and cruise would be eye to eye.
Duhon said on 30/Jan/21
Forget to add 5'4" Rex Lee who also helped Piven look taller.
Duhon said on 7/Jan/21
5'4.5" Jerry Ferrara, 5'5" Kevin Conolly, 5'7.75" Jeremy Piven, 5'8.75" Kevin Dillon. I just realized Entourage probably had one of the shorter male main casts in modern TV. No wonder 5'10.5" Adrian Grenier looked like a 6 footer on the show.

There is a higher chance that he is 5ft 6 3/4 than 5ft 7 3/4

Hi Rob, in the recently released Christmas film called My Dad’s Christmas Date on Amazon Prime, his character in the film claims 5’9” and 175 lbs
Editor Rob
It's good he didn't go with 5ft 10!
Slim 6'1" said on 10/Sep/20
Nearer 5’7 than 5’8”
Slim 6'1 said on 10/Sep/20
The tippy toe guy rob always brings up, 171-172cm
Editor Rob
I'll make sure to mention Piven's tip-toeing at least once in a future video, but that will be it. He'll get off lightly.
TheBat said on 5/Aug/20
I'd say 5'7" flat for Jeremy. Amazing actor but one of the biggest height fibbers in Hollywood.
Haley said on 13/May/20
He needs to stop telling Fables about his height. He is 5'6-5'7
TheBat said on 22/Nov/19
The fact a solid 5'7" like Piven claimed 5'10" is just hilariously off.
Kourosh said on 13/Nov/19
a weak 5'8 man wouldn't be this insecure about one's height. He is 5'7 at best if i am being generous.

how a regular strong 5'7 with his tip toeing is still shorter than average female ?
Nik said on 30/Sep/19
It's interesting that the average actor on the Entourage page is 5'7.7"!
Yeah man said on 7/May/19
I bet by the end of the day he is 5’6 1/2. He doesn’t look 5’7 barefoot to me. Definitely under 5’7. 5’6 range is perfect
TheBat said on 15/Mar/19
Lol Jeremy is nowhere near 5'9" or 5'10". The highest I'd give him would be 5'8" and the lowest at 5'7.25".
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/Jan/19
Solid 171cm but not 172cm. 5'7 1/2 look near for him.
Rising - 174 cm said on 25/Oct/18
Funny to see Robert Downey Jr. look so much taller than Jeremy: Click Here Maybe ground is on Downey's side along with the low angle and his cowboy boots(with extra lifts inside) certainly help, but I do believe Downey is the taller of the two. Downey is barely recognizable there.
Guitargeorge said on 1/Jul/18
You need to get realistic on this one Rob.. No offence I respect your expert judgement.. Still this is off.
berta said on 5/May/18
i think the listing is little to high. he just over 170 cm. 171 could be a better listing
David said on 20/Dec/17
I think he is shorter than 5'6.5 Tom Cruise
Cacau said on 28/Nov/17
He looks one inch taller than Dustin Hoffman in Runaway Jury. 1,70 top.
JJAK said on 15/Nov/17
Sorry to argue but dude need a big downgrade he is noticeably shorter than middle aged jackie chan.
Looks like a hobbit next to common a rather big 6 foot but no more than 6 1.
As said below a middle aged deniro is a good yard stick unless you believe he was 5 10 in the 90s, piven is no more than 5 7.
Sharples said on 14/Nov/17
5 6 at best !
TedRR said on 13/Nov/17
5'10"? WTF?! Not even if he was on a step ladder! Then, check out the new toupee he's wearing! He cut his remaining REAL hair short with the toupee hair longer, kind of looks like someone put a dead possum on his head to cover his ever growing bald spot! I also noticed nobody has mentioned that he is on the list of Hollywood men being accused of sexual abuse, his little man syndrome continues to grow!
Adamz said on 11/Nov/17
67.25 inches maximum
JordanG said on 15/Oct/17
Do you guys think when actors give themselves an extra 3 inches of height and state their weight in the same sentence that they add weight too, or do you guys think Piven is around 5'7 and still around 175 lbs?
Editor Rob
generally I think they are more reasonable with weight than with height.

Lol, what a pathetic little man Click Here
SeenHimClose said on 10/Aug/17
I was at his New Years Eve Party in Chicago back in 2000...or maybe it was ''s been awhile. Anyway, he walked right past my table and I was seated on a bar stool that put my elevation close to my standing height of 5'10". The first thing that floored me was how short he in glaringly short. After the bar cleared out I saw him on the street walking near a few other people of average height. Again, I couldn't believe how much smaller he was than everyone else near him that appeared to be of average height. Maybe he forgot his elevator shoes? I don't know. But I'd put him at 5'3" or maybe 5'4" at best. I notice that the site only allows a choice of 5'7 or taller. That's rigged for reasons I don't understand. Great talent but very small individual in stature. Again, 5'3" would be my estimate.
RisingForce said on 27/May/17
Kevin Connolly, who is probably 5'4" range was quoted in a Playboy interview as saying "Piven isn't much taller than I am." But it depends on what you consider "much taller" since Piven without his elevator shoes does look at least 2.5", maybe 3" taller: Click Here I can't say whether he put lifts in those boots, but then we could ask the same thing about Connolly, who I can't believe gets listed at 5'7", which is almost as bad as James Cagney getting listed 5'8". Rob's listing is closer for Piven than the flat 5'7" stuff, but I think 5'7.5" would be spot on. In that same 171 minimum and 172 maximum range as Tom Cruise and Ryan Seacrest, but with worse proportions.
delancey said on 13/May/17
@Revisionist I forgot to add. A 5 cm height difference is quite noticeable, if Hardy is 175 cm then even accounting for Pivens tilted forward head I don't see that much height difference between them in that photo.
delancey said on 13/May/17
@Revisionist That's a fair point, Piven has his head tilted slightly forward but if you look at their feet they are both standing pretty equally. Not saying that Piven is 5'8 or anything crazy, but I don't think he's a flat 170 cm either like a lot of people here think.
His body proportions don't help him out either, portly liked you said. If Hardy is 175 cm (or a high range 5'8), I could buy 171 cm but I just don't see 170 cm flat in that photo.
Johan said on 10/May/17
Arthur said on 10/Feb/17
Rob can you PLEASE change the photo you have for him and put one where he is on tip toes? IT WOULD BE HILARIOUS

give him one of these Click Here Click Here

oh my god, imagine if trump finds out piven's photos on the internet and roasts him on twitter. i would die laughing
Editor Rob: because the photographer is quite close, Piven I'm sure thinks he won't have his feet in the photo, little realising it's a very wide angle lens!

Big Dom Cooper got his own back a little Out Pivoting Piven

He can actually look 5'9" when he goes on his toes like with Daniella there. I guess she is 6'2" with heels leaving him at 5'10" in that shot on his toes.
I wonder if Dom Cooper was trolling him after seeing all the pics online.
Revisionist said on 9/May/17
@ delancey, not a representative picture because Piven is standing closer to the camera, and in shots where the camera is significantly pointing down or up at the subjects in close, height differences are minimized. Example: Click Here
Stiles and Niall appear to be no more than 1" apart, but Harry is likely 1.75" taller and usually has a heel advantage to boot. Zayn's the tallest guy in the group, apparently, using his usual trick of standing in front of others.

Piven is lucky to be 5'7.5 on his best day. I wouldn't be surprised to see a portly guy like him drop to 170cm flat by evening.
RisingForce said on 27/Apr/17
Good point, delancey. I use to think Piven was 5'7" because of his short looking proportions and how short he looked on his early Seinfeld appearance(when he was picked as he resembled short, i.e., short and bald), but certainly though he has a camera advantage with Hardy he definitely doesn't look 2" shorter. Also, he looks almost the same height as Mario Lopez here: Click Here No tip-toeing or lifts there and all pics from that series show the same thing, plus we can be sure he didn't stand on his toes for this entire video interview, where he's against, just slightly shorter than Mario by not even an inch: Click Here I think 5'7.5" is perfect, but the current listing is fine as well. Both he and Wahlberg can look taller than each other, which suggests they're similar, but in general, I think Wahlberg is probably just slightly taller. Of course, some of the times Piven appears taller may be because he's on his toes! This photo made me wonder if Piven is a lift/elevator guy as well: Click Here It's certainly a better option than the tip-toeing, which makes Piven a lift candidate anyway, but the Lopez comparison shows what a difference proportions can make. Standing by themselves, I doubt anyone would imagine those 2 are just about eye to eye.
delancey said on 26/Apr/17
I don't mean Piven may be a strong 5'8 or anything that involves a big upgrade.
But I think he may be closer to Mark Wahlberg who I think is a very weak 5'8, 173 cm day, 172 cm night guy.
delancey said on 25/Apr/17
Check out this photo with Tom Hardy, they both look eerily similar.
Flat flooring and I think Hardy may have a shoe advantage (then again who know's if Piven has lifts, to my eyes his shoes look pretty flat and innocuous imo)

Either Hardy needs a downgrade (highly unlikely, lowest I could see Hardy at is 5'8.75 and that's a big stretch) or Piven is definitely not (surprisingly) lower than this current listing and may be more 173 cm in the day.

To be fair to Cooper, he was probably just anticipating a group tiptoe, but Piven bailed out at the last moment!

172.4cm guy said on 7/Feb/17
Piven always looked like 171cm, more closer to 5'7.25". I already posted 5'7.75" as my guess for Wahlberg, and Piven looks about 1/2 inch shorter than him, just like in @Murray's posted pic.
Revisionist said on 29/Jan/17
7.75 for Piven is a joke. Even 7 flat is generous. Walhberg is likely closer to 7.75.

Please downgrade to 7 flat.
Mark said on 7/Jan/17
Saw recent photo with Piven and Eubank Jnr (5'10/11) he looks 4 inches shorter.

169-171 cm. He does not look like a 173+ man. It's visible in Mr Selfridge series.

Good actor funny very short make de niro looknow big.
5 7 with shoes and hair he is occasionally a bit heavier could be 170.
Gregg Richards said on 21/Sep/16
He is 5ft 7 no taller if he was 5ft 10 as claimed than I guess everyone else has to be an average of 6ft 4 when you see the difference in height standing next to other people.Why can't actors just tell the truth it's obvious as soon as you see them how truly short they are.
craig said on 3/Aug/16
@Mat In a reasonable world you'd be right about how guys deserve mockery for being insecure and exagerating height, but in reality you don't get any credit for being a celebrity who's honest about their height and if you're under 5'9 you get branded as a "short actor" and all the mockery that goes with it. There's something magical about that 5'9 number for some reason so I can see why a lot of 5'7-5'8 actors claim to be that height
T said on 29/Jul/16
I'm watching entourage movie , Kid busi seems to be a lot taller than him.
Mat said on 27/Dec/15
Rob, please add in the description his love of tip toeing. Look another instance I found: Click Here
THere's a ton of pics of him if you google jeremy piven tip toes

Jeremy Piven FAIL
Mat said on 26/Dec/15
Rob, you should add to the top that he has also claimed 5'9... A lot of guys have provided you links below. But aside from that, this guy is ultra sad. If he was an A-list actor, he would get massive mockery out of his stature just because he is insanely height conscious. He is incomparable to Bieber or Cruise in my opinion. So Pathetic...
Editor Rob
yes I updated the top a little more.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jun/15
Rob, is the full 5ft8 possible?
Editor Rob
at times he can...but Piven has been guilty of tip-toeing quite explicitly at times. I wonder if he hovers in photos, sometimes just rising up a fraction and in photos you won't really spot it!
RonG said on 26/May/15
I'm 5'10" ,175 and I hope I wouldn't look that short on TV. But maybe I would.
Shawn said on 15/Apr/15
@Dan, Yes, I remember that episode. Piven's character describes Cruise as being "like 5'4". In reality, I think Cruise would ever so slightly edge Piven out.
Wow said on 18/Mar/15
180cm Larry David towered over him in Entourage scene , so yeah 5'8, 5'9 or 5'10 out of the question. I can believe anything from 5'6.5 to 5'7.5 (The scene is on YouTube and I'm sure Jeremy is wearing fancy dress shoes with a heel while Larry in the same old sneakers...)
Ice101781 said on 1/Mar/15
I recently saw Piven at the amfAR Gala at Cipriani's in nyc. I'm 5'8 1/4 and had on a pair of nikes, so I was probably around 5'9 or 5'9 1/2 at the time. He looked to be near my height in a pair of dress shoes. So, either this listing is a little off, or Piven was wearing a slight lift.
Ben said on 19/Jan/15
Jeremy Piven once appeared on a Seinfeld episode where he auditioned for the role of "George" (Jerry has created a show based on his life and is casting actors to play his friends). Jason Alexander, who played George, is about 5'5" and Piven looks comparably short. And, of course, like George, Piven was balding in the episode, so unless Piven specifically shaved his head for the role, he also probably now wears a toupee.
Dan said on 10/Jan/15
Funny how his character in the show makes fun of Cruise's height, yet in real life they're exactly the same height
fsd said on 10/Jan/15
not above flat 5'7 ft max and not under 5'6ft so 5'6.5 ft would be a fair listing .
Frankie68 said on 28/Dec/14
He is the shortest 5"10 I've ever seen.... He's 5"6 max
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Nov/14
This guy claims 5ft10, lol
184.3cm said on 16/Oct/14
What is he doing in those photos??..Doesnt he realize what a fool he looks standing on his tip toes like a ballerina.
Editor Rob
I think this is a case of a photographer being quite close to the subjects and using a wide angle lense.. and maybe Piven is thinking the shot will 'never' include his toes, but be more akin to a waist up shot. I guess height was definitely on his mind there and he never thought his feet would be seen and he'd be rumbled...

You can shoot only a few feet away with big wide angle and cover a full body at times.
cole said on 15/Oct/14
@Editor Rob: I loved this guy in Entourage, but honestly he looked about 10 cm shorter than 180 cm listed Adam Goldberg and Gary Cole very often. Although I think 181 cm is possible for both of them. 171 cm is more realistic for Piven, as he also looks 8 cm shorter than Adrian Grenier.

He has a noticable footwear advantage on Cole and still looks about 7 cm shorter: Click Here
Realist said on 22/Sep/14
@Kourosh177cm Yeah it annoys me too bro. I like an honest idiot say 5'7.5 to everyone and sometimes i say Zac Efron is about my height and the reply is oh he is so short. The girls who say so claim 5'6 but barely touch a solid 5'3 and a few male friends of mine in 5'6.75 range claim 5'9. The 5'2 guys claim 5'6 and the 5'5 guys claim approx my height and i am taller than a majority of them 5'11 guys claim 6'1. The only honest ones are the girls above 5'9 who often downgrade themselves and the guys above 6'1 actually. I feel like an idiot being honest and then i am called short and 5'5-5'6 guys are thought of as average. People should really buy an aerosol bottle and tape and measure themselves before commenting. Believe me, India is a lot worse in height lying than the west. In the west they'll try to at least look their claim but here its not even that.
Kourosh177cm said on 14/Sep/14
all these 5'7 guys who claim to be 5'10 make me to question my height like " i might be 5'7 as well, im gonna measure myself again and then it comes out 177cm ( evening)" and im like " phew im safe".

Dear god, Those photos from Dural, MD and Editor Rob make me cringe beyond measure. In all of them Piven is on his toes and he thinks no one will notice??? Jeremy accept the bones that bind your flesh and blood, and stop with the height complex. Life is too short (excuse the pun).

He's actually looking less than 5'7 in some of those photos.
MD said on 21/Apr/14

It blows my mind that he might actually think that. lol So, when you going to list him more appropriately, just wondering..?
Editor Rob
he is somewhere in 5ft 7-7.75 range, I need to see more whether he is not above say 171cm
Dural said on 20/Apr/14
On his toes with Daniela Hantuchová.

Damon said on 19/Apr/14
@MD, in that photo he's next to Nina Agdal, who claims 5'9 (very reasonable, if you ask me). But, with the bent leg, and the tiptoes. I think he's shrunk himself even more in my book. I might say 5'7 flat
MD said on 18/Apr/14
Oh, god. Here he is again on his toes next to a model who has he leg bent, no less:

This guy is so ridiculously height-conscious.
Editor Rob
I wonder if this guy thinks they aren't including his shoes in some of these shots!
Lorne said on 16/Apr/14
Rob, Ridingforce has posted several 5ft9, and even more 5ft10 claims. And Jeremy was already on the G-list, Rob. But you still think he's 172cm? I mean he looks tiny in those pics, and he's on Tip Toes! Plus, he's shorter than Mark Wahlberg,(who really is legit 5ft8) AND Malcolm McDowell, who was 173-4 at the time. Honestly he can look just 170cm without lifts, but could we at least get him down to 171?
Editor Rob
I think he can get away with 172...just...those who go on tip-toes are 'For the watching'!
Nina said on 5/Apr/14
I walked right next to him on the street. I am 5'7" (female). He was shorter than me. I would give him 5'6" at most.
RisingForce said on 19/Mar/14
Rob, here's a few links/sources for the 5'9" claim. He's actually made the "5-9 linebacker" joke several times over the years.

"I played in high school, but how many 5-9 linebackers are in the NFL?" Click Here (2011 ESPN)

"There are no 5-foot-9 linebackers in the NFL," Click Here (1998 CHicago Tribune)

But here's the funny thing, he's tried the linebacker joke in several other interviews, except with 5'10"! Here are several of them.

The idea of being a 5-foot-10, 176-pound linebacker for anyone was a joke, but I thought I could live the dream." Click Here (2007 Chicago Tribune)

"Being the only white boy on the team—a 5-foot-10-inch 175-pound Jewish outside linebacker—I was not an all-American." Click Here (Mens Health 2010)

His 5'10" claim isn't remotely believable, and not just because I think he's 5'7.5", possibly a weak 5'8", but because his proportions give him an impression below 5'7".

Lorne said on 9/Mar/14
He claimed 5'9 in an interview, actually said he was a "5ft9 Jewish Linebacker". I think his 5'9 claim should be mentioned, I'll look for the interview, but it used to be in the comments.
Editor Rob
if it can be found again I'll mention it, as at least it is somewhat more reasonable than 5ft 10!

Met him at Thom Bar in NY SoHo about 7-8 years ago, he wears THICK chunky boots and was about 5'9 in them. 5'7 barefoot.
Edlt2882 said on 6/Jan/14
Based on the pictures and my intuition of their body proportions, I'd say Piven is indeed 170cm and Wahlberg would be 172cm.
truth said on 28/Dec/13
5ft7.5 and a height complex, reminds me of Tom Cruise haha.
MD said on 9/Dec/13
You know, folks throw out about how so-and-so is one of the vainest guys in the industry, but I truly believe that in the case of Piven. Everything I've heard negatively about this guy is obsession with his height. Tips toes, lifts, the whole nine. I wish he'd just chill out and enjoy himself. When you're making a living as an actor, that alone should satisfy a lot of your insecurities.
Leung said on 7/Dec/13
I was looking at the link that anonymous posted on 07/Mar/13 and seeing Piven tip toeing for the photos it is just too bizarre.

Wahlberg seems to slightly edge him out in the vast majority of pics. Based on pics with Mark, I don't even think he's a full 5'7" Rob, probably more a strong 5'6, G territory.

This guy is max 172 cm ! No doubts !
avi said on 31/Jul/13
Thanks Rob for having this. This proves my theory that Hugh Hefner is barely in 5'7 range as this guy appears only a tad taller. Hefner has a son who seemed really really tall but since Hefner isn't 5'9 like listed his son must be 6'4 area and the other son 6'0. Rob how tall do you think Hefner is? 5'7.5 tops?

since common claims 6 foot aswell, in that photo he looks a 5ft 7 range guy
RisingForce said on 28/Sep/12
I used to think he was a flat 5'7", but as usual Rob seems to be remarkably accurate with his listings. I believe I was fooled by Piven's terrible proportions which look stubbier and shorter than most 5'7" guys, but I believe Piven is about the height he's listed at. I'd say 5'7.5" for Piven, but as Rob would say, there's just as many 5'7.75" people as 5'7.5" people. Piven has gone back and forth claiming both 5'9" and 5'10" on numerous occasions, and his 5'10" claim is one of the worst I've heard from a celebrity, but I still don't think he's really a lift wearer since he does look to be a strong 5'7"/weak 5'8" guy when compared to others.

In entourage he genuinely looks 5'9 a lot of the time.

He is a strong 5'7 , he is shorter then 5'8 ludacris

No where near 5 foot 10. What a liar! When he was on seinfield, he was barely taller than jason alexander who is close to 165cm. 5 foot 8.

Def. between 5'7 and 5'8, closer to 5'7
Tyler said on 16/Aug/11
@lorne That photo has a slant to it. And Foxx seems to be around 5'9.5". And I see an inch difference in that photo. So, I'd say about 5'8.5 for Piven.
Tyler said on 11/Aug/11
@Tachna I think this height is closer to the height that's listed. C'mon Rob, this height is too little. At least give him 5'8.5".

in this vid he says he's 5 foot 9, probably in dress shoes lol

Just saw him on Regis where he looked between 5'9" and 5' 10" but when he was sitting down you could tell he was wearing lifts. I'd say 5'8" is max.

5'9.5"-5'10" I think people downgrade him because a lot of people hate him for some reason.
austrianguy said on 28/May/11
He is a tough one. His Large frame and huge head can make him appear even with average guys, even though he's clearly below average. Depending on what he packs in his shoes i'd say 5'8 max, but not below 5'7.

5'10"/5'7" his short either way :). That being said, his a really talented actor!

ty said on 28/Oct/10
No way he is he 5'8". I'm 5'8" and if I wore lifts like him, I would look like a strong average. Piven still looks below average wearing lifts. I'm going to guess that Piven is 5'7.25" maybe.

leonari said on 7/Jul/09
Richard: you are delusional. 5'9" Jeremy Piven? wow...
RICHARD said on 6/Jul/09
IMO,Piven has bad slouching and maybe that's why he looks shorter but when he stands up straight he looks 5'9/5'10 but for some reason he never looks under 5'8 to me. He's a solid 5'9 guy and people need to realize that or they're hysterical claiming he's small

My main man Luda sure did have an inch over Piven.

dude this guy is such a bullsh***er when it comes to his height. He claims 5'10" in an interview (the interviewer chuckled) and on Entourage, they always make fun of Kevin Connolly for his height but never Jeremy. In one episode, they say Connolly is half of Piven's size... yeah he dreams

That photo is terrible for assessing height because neither is standing straight, Efron is holding a baby, the camera angle is not front on etc. I simply disregard that photo as height evidence.

Zac Efron is more like 5'7".

RisingForce said on 11/Apr/09
I try not to assume that large shoes are lifts, I was actually referring more to Piven's visible heel than what's inside the shoes. In the last picture they look like 2 inch heels while Macy seems to be in normal dress shoes.

Just the difference on the heel alone as well as the fact that Macy is still a little taller makes me think that even Macy at 5'9" would make Piven 5'7." max IMO.

Thanks for the nice comments though, I consider you among the best posters as well.
bam said on 10/Apr/09
rising, I always enjoy reading your comments, your very clever and don't compulsively downgrade like the average visitor. The only thing that gets me scratching my head, is how you think slightly largish shoes must be lifts. I think a good deal of the time they're just slightly clunky dress shoes. If piven claimed 5'10 and wore lifts, he would wear them often, including the time the tall chick interviewed him.I think the man is a hair below robs listing. Macy is possibly 5'9. He looked it next to 5'7 tea leone. Although he looked barely 5'8 near tim allen. How tall do you think the girl who talked to piven at the interview was?
RisingForce said on 27/Mar/09
Well I'm pretty sure he's shorter than Mark Wahlberg who is shorter than Ludacris. Wahlberg looks 5'7.5" to me which is why Piven seems 5'7" to me.

Good point about his proportions and there's a reason that when he claimed 5'10" in an interview the woman interviewing him laughed a little!
RisingForce said on 25/Mar/09
Here's a comparison for Piven and William H. Macy who is listed here at 5'8.5"

First their footwear which shows that Piven is likely getting atleast an inch advantage over Macy. Click Here

Then the fact that Macy is still a bit taller than Piven. Click Here

Now another look at Piven's heels.
Click Here

2 inches easily, so Piven could be as much as 2 inches shorter than Macy barefoot in my opinion. Macy is probably more like 5'9" in my opinion so that backs up Piven being 5'7". Piven could be 5'7.75" as well, I mean it's tough to tell that apart from 5'7" in pictures, but he really could be a flat 5'7' guy who claims 5'10"!
RisingForce said on 10/Mar/09
Man and I thought Mark Wahlberg's 5'10" claim was bad. Piven is even shorter than Wahlberg and claims 5'10". He may be giving himself 3 inches!

Again, he's at least an inche shorter than Mark Wahlberg. Perhaps not 5'6", but he's definitely not over 5'7.75", and I can't understand why Rob still has him at nearly 5'8".
leonari said on 29/Dec/08
Richard: hahahaha! 5'10 Jeremy Piven thats the joke of the day. Gotta love it. Unbelievable...
This is not "" Richard. Who cares about his hair? We don't. The man is below 5'8". Not 5'6" though
RICHARD said on 28/Dec/08
Jeremy is a legit 5'9 guy. He might even be 5'10 like he claims. I know that the only thing that's fake is his hair. He got hairplugs in the 00s and if you don't believe me watch the 1993 Seinfeld ep called "The Pilot",yes it was 15 years ago, and Jer was bald as heck I almost didn't recognize him,but he did age well if I must say esp. for being a 43-year-old with plugs and constantly be called a 5'6 or 5'7 guy when he's not. 175 cm for Jer sounds cool with me.
JD said on 26/Dec/08
i see him consistantly be towered by vince and his brother on entourage. hes also no more than an inch or two max taller than E. I dont know how tall E is, but from what I know Vince is 5-10 maybe 5-11, but mre or less somewhere in the middle, and his brother is maybe a half an inch shorter. a legit 5-8 though short, would not be towered by someone at 5-10. This guy cant be more than 5-7.5, although it is more likely he is brushing 5-7, leaving turtle and E somewhere around the 5-5.5 mark, with vince and drama both 5-10/5-11

sf said on 4/Feb/08
5'7" or so. Every interview I've seen Piven in, he either comes off kind of high on himself, and does seem to exaggerate. He acts like no one can tell he obviously has a hair weave or wears a rug, or whatever. Not putting him down, but, to me, he always seems like he needs to impress. I think around 5'7" is accurate. Only being 5'10" and playing high school football? Hilarious - many, many guys that tall and shorter in high school football.
Leung said on 3/Feb/08
Definitely not 5

Seemed 5'10 or so, maybe taller, when I saw Jeremy Piven walking to his car last year in Chicago I was standing next to my friend Phil who is 5'4" or maybe 5'5" and Jeremy Piven seemed taller by far. I am 5'11" and he didn't seem much shorter.
Real said on 26/Jan/08
It seems that everyone who has seen him claims he is 5'6ish.
I've watched the entourage episodes numerous times.. w/out lifts, he wouldn't be much taller than connolly.. and you can tell that connolly doesn't wear lifts. yeah, he might easily appear 5'9 with lifts, i know i do with timberlands and insoles.

Your mother has to do with your height as well. I have a friend who is 6-0, but his father is in the 6-3 to 6-4 range. However, his mother is only about
5-1. His mother's mother is under 5-0. I am thinking that is a reason why he is only 6-0.
Anonymous said on 28/Aug/07
you know he might be perceived as 5-10ish because he's always wearing suit shoes in entourage because he's always dressed up as agent man. another ridiculous height listing is perry reeves who plays ari's wife is listed at 5'10 but she's clearly shorter than ari in heels, which she ALWAYS is wearing and piven is probably scraping 5'10 barely in his shoes

Eclipse said on 25/Jul/07
Did anyone notice the last episode of Entourage? Ari is in the shoe store and the guy asks him if he wears a size 8. He gives him a mean look and says, "NO- an 11". I laughed to myself thinking that in real life he claims to be 5-10, but seems about 5-8, and his character Ari claims an 11 shoe size, but a worker at a shoe store guessed that he was an 8. Maybe acting isn't 100% "acting" if you catch my drift.....
Real said on 9/Jul/07
that seinfeld episode is very telling.. but it's hard to pinpoint because he never really stood next to anyone when ya could see his feet.. when he walked into "Jerry's apartment" his head came up to about the eyehole.. He looked 5'6-7 in his scenes

I watched a bunch of entourage episodes yesterday, and he can look from 1-2" taller than Connolly up to 3-4" .. Connolly is what, 5'5?
I'd take .5-1" off Piven.. and there is no way he is 5'10.. lol.. i hope he was joking
KillingJOK3 said on 1/Jul/07
Watch the episode on Seinfeld when he was auditioning for the George part on the pilot "Jerry". He was wearing sneakers and he looked pretty small 5'9? 5'10? Yah right... 5'8 is pushing it IMO.

There is no way of upgrading this guy. We upgrade him -> upgrade Marky Mark -> upgrade Donnie Wahlberg to 5'11 - 6'0'' eventhough he said 5'10''ish. Soon we have upgraded everyone 6'0''...

If Jeremy Piven is 5'9" then you have to upgrade Mark Whalberg. There is no way that Piven is taller than Whalberg.

Jeremy looked taller than Christian Slater in Very Bad Things. He has to be the 5'9 he claims. I heard Piven's dad was 6' so I would figure Jeremy would be 5'9. I don't know his mom's height,though

Mike: I totally agree and respect yopur opinion. It's how you carry yourself in life what matters. Nothing else...
Mike said on 29/Dec/06
Alright, I stand corrected. I still don't understand why it would matter though. Honestly, your life is not going to be any different as long as you're confident about your height... Unless I'm wrong about that? Okay, granted if you're 5'1 and male, that isn't great but the world isn't ending. I have a friend that's 5'7 and all he ever does is worry about his height and complain that his father is 6'3 and that he's short, yet he gets everything he wants from girls to success because he stands tall and is the most confident (and possibly arrogant) guy I know... So tell me why does it matter?
Jeremy Piven is an awesome actor by the way, I don't see why it's such a big deal that he said 5'10... I've said 5'10 sometimes and like I said i'm 5'8... O_o
D. Ray Morton said on 21/Dec/06
"Most people aren't as insecure about their height as you guys are"

That's why 95% of the entertainment industry exaggerates its height by two inches.

There's a lot of height-related insecurity out there, even among people who really have nothing to be insecure about.
Mike said on 20/Dec/06
Why do you guys care? You seem to say "omg, he's 5' 7"... therefore? I'm 5' 8 and it's never killed me... :/
Also, I don't think the interviewer was laughing about that... Most people aren't as insecure about their height as you guys are, but if you really want to explain why you care so much about bashing celebrities like Jeremy Piven who is rather good looking... i'd be delighted. Enlighten me.

He can, too. Though, sports stars usually list their height only an extra inch, as it would be too obvious, otherwise. They simply give their height in shoes, usually.

Denis Learly is also in that movie, and theres a part where jeremy talks to denis * face to face * and if denis is 6'2-6'3 .... then jeremy is nowhere near his 5'10 clame !

my guess was ....

1.emilio - 5'5 no more
2.cuba - atleast 5'10
3.denis - well over 6'0
4.steven - 5'6 -5'7
5.jeremy - 5'7ish

I know for a fact that Jeremy Piven is NOT 5'9". I'm from Chicago and I ran into him during a filming of a short-lived US series entiteled "Cupid". Jeremy played a cupid hunting for game... dumb premise. Anyhow, I was trying to cross an intersection and Jeremy was filming a scene and his goons pushed him past me and Jeremy had visible lifts in his shoes (and they were comical). His heels were huge. I'm 5'9" and despite said lifts, I was able to look down on the top of his shiny scalp. By the way, he had lots of that tinted scalp shellac on; the stuff that's supposed to hide baldness. My brother and sister-in-law were with me while this all transpired, and we all commented on how odd the little guy was. He was all sheepish and weird, and he seemed just plain goofy with the scalp paint and elevated shoes and all. My guess is that Jeremy Piven is about 5'6" or so, because I'm no giant and I felt like he was a lillaputian next to me and I'm only 5'9".

Okay, I'm a few months late but that clip of Piven on the red carpet is the greatest! I love the way the interviewer gives that knowing "he's so full of s***" smile and quickly changes the subject. The best clip of an actor flat out lying about their height to an interviewer and interviewer subtly catching them in life since Matt LeBlanc with Katie Courcic on the Today Show. Ironically, he also claimed 5'10"!

lol, yeah it is a great little clip! He's going for the 2 inch rule

Ive seen a lot of pics of Jeremy with mark wahlberg who you have listed as 5'8'' and Piven appears shorter. I think he is probably between 5'7'' and 5'8''.

this is very accurate. if you watch 'Lucas', a young jeremy piven is just under the same as charlie sheen who is about 5'9, or a bit over

How do you know Hoffman isn't wearing lifts or anything in that picture? Just seeing somebody in a store isn't an accurate measure for telling somebody's height. Depending on build, frame, how long somebody's legs are in proportion to their body, their height can look two or three inches more or less than it really is. He looks "short" in the sense that he's under average, but jeez, he looks nowhere near 5'4 or 5'5. That's ridiculous. I'm about 5'8.5, and sometimes I wonder if I were a celebrity what ridiculous height you people would be giving me. "No, I saw him at footlocker, 5'8 is way too generous, he's 5'5, 5'6 tops".

In this clip on the red carpet he claims he is 5'10".

Editor Rob
nice! lol, the interviewer knowingly smiled after he said 'I'm 5ft 10'...

He looked extremely short in Serendipity. I guess it depends on how tall John Cusack is. He's listed as 6'2 here, which seems about right as he does look that tall. If Cusack is that tall, then Piven isn't anywhere near 5'8.5". I have no idea how tall he is but he does look in the 5'6-5'7 range if you watch serendipity.

He was in a movie with Annabella Sciorra (5'2)called 'Chasing Liberty'. He wasn't 6 and a half in. taller than she. I think his height should be re-evaluated.

I know David Spade is super short like 5'2" - because I once saw him, so judging from PCU, Pivens must be 5'4" or 5'5" if that.

From, "Saw Jeremy Piven walking down Madison ave. Very handsome, but shorter than expected"

Some people appear shorter or taller than they are on screen. Actor Billy Connolly looks 6'3" but is 6'. I'd guess that Jeremy Piven is somewhere between 5'7" and 5'9." He might be 5'7" He's often standing next to John Cusack who is 6'3" Whatever height he is, I think he's attractive and talented. I never knew there was a website to dicuss celebrities heights in such exactitude.

I agree with all of the guys about Jeremy. He looks really short. He is a stocky guy and seems to have short legs which might make him look even shorter, but the truth is that he is shorter than Christian 5'8.5''Slater in Very Bad Things. There is no way on earth that he'd be 5'8''. 5'7.75'' is really tops...All the ppl who have met him have commented that he is around 5'7''...

jeremy piven is not 5'8". I saw him last christmas in chicago in a department store. This guy is no more than 5'5". I was surprised at how short and slight he was! Gorgeous? yes. Talented? no doubt, but 5'8"? That's his publicist talking.
drwavedawg said on 20/May/05
