Looks a solid 5'8". Nice to see an actor in that range that doesn't appear to wear Tom Cruise or Robert Downey Jr 'special shoes'. Looks good at his height, and better for not being insecure about it!
Sarah said on 19/Feb/14
His height seems to fluctuate a bit... lifts? I'd say that he is close to 5'8", though. I don't think that he is short, actually. He wasn't noticeably short in the Avengers.
Da Troof said on 13/Feb/14
He's shorter than Tom Cruise so no ways is he more than 5'6" or 5'7" at best.
Lorne said on 6/Jan/14
Dmeyer says 162-173, and I believe him. Look at Renner in Pics with Jon Hamm, Rebecca Hall and Affleck, he looks tiny! Rob, you can safely take the quarter inch off, at least.
MarcusTheSwede said on 26/Dec/13
Paul: Sorry to make you disappointed but you are very very wrong. This listing is spot on right. He is 173cm not a cm more. Seen him irl in Hollywood and he is with dress shoes at best 173.5cm so without the 173cm is generous.

Look at this pic Click Here
with Jennifer Lawrence. She's 5"7½ according to celebhights and have a massive lift on those shoes (about 4½, 5 in. or so?) so I think 5"8,25 is spot on.
Paul said on 12/Dec/13
Definitely not 5 ft 8, I bet he's 5 ft 10 for sure.
Reaktiv said on 10/Nov/13
I had the pleasure of working with Renner for a couple of days when they were filming Bourne in the Philippines. Very nice guy. He's no more than 5'7" though, sad to disappoint you girls.
said on 8/Nov/13
This is about right. I would remove the 0.25 though. Here he is with 6ft Ed Norton Click Here
Tex said on 5/Nov/13
5ft 8 guy
Saman Q said on 1/Nov/13
Rob do you think his height consider short ?
MD said on 21/Oct/13
@Arch, the funny thing is that Mackie isn't even 5'10", let alone the 5'10.5" Rob has him listed.
Arch Stanton said on 19/Oct/13
Surprised with Mackie though I thought he was 6 ft odd in the Hurt Locker.
Arch Stanton said on 19/Oct/13
He looked around 5 ft 8 I thought in Hurt Locker, I'd guess 172 cm, I doubt he's as low as 5 ft 7 but he clearly aint 5 ft 10!! Probably similar height to Tom Cruise.
STEEL said on 8/Oct/13
5'7 looks about right. 5'10 is a a boldfaced lie!
Balrog said on 3/Sep/13
Renner at 173cm would put Mackie at 177-178 and I think he is.
Powerhouse said on 1/Sep/13
dmeyer said on 5/Aug/13
5 ft 8 flat is closer and rufally might be nearer 5 ft 7.5-7.75 i met him
Adam said on 3/Aug/13
He's about 5'7.5
Pedro said on 1/Aug/13
According to his resume on I.M.D.b., he is 5'10".
cole said on 28/Jul/13
@:Jean: He looks about 5 cm shorter than Mackie in bigger footwear. And I don't know if Mackie is a legit 5'10.5 dude. Can't see Jeremy over 173.
jean said on 11/Jun/13
He looks the same height as Anthony mackie.
If mackie is 5"10.5 then jeremy is at the very least 5"9.5 or you need to downgrade mackie
lol said on 5/Jun/13
He's not a lift wearer , but he's a genuine 5ft 7 ..
Just do a basic search on his photos and we can see that he's got a STRONG 5ft7 frame ... The very top for him it'll be 5ft7.5 ...
RR said on 3/Jun/13
Met him at a benefit a few months ago. He is 5'7" - 5'8" tops.
Balrog said on 9/Apr/13
A genuine 5'8'' guy and not a lift wearer.
Jupiter8 said on 11/Mar/13
I think he's 5ft9 if you compare him to Cruise and Pegg, Arterton and Johansson. Remember women's shoes these days are at least 4 inches. If you watch him on Graham Norton he's about the same height as Graham and Gemma is slightly taller in her heels and she's 5ft7. But I only care about looking at his eyes and arms ;)
said on 4/Mar/13
True, he's a modestly sized guy, but at least he doesn't come off as negatively preoccupied with his stature unlike co-stars like Robert Downey Jr. & Tom Cruise and appears to wear normal footwear. Looked pretty much average height on a SNL repeat I saw recently.
Tom said on 17/Jan/13
Mary said on 16/Jan/13
5'8". Good height and a great actor
Becca said on 8/Jan/13
When comparing him to actresses wearing high heels, keep in mind that these days the average stiletto has a 4" heel and if it has a platform might even be adding 5" to their height.
Balrog said on 4/Jan/13
Sam you shouldn't compare him next to Cruise because I'm sure Renner isn't a lift wearer unlike Cruise.
said on 2/Jan/13
I'm not fighting over a fraction of an inch, but he doesn't look anything over 5'8" compared to Tom Cruise. He certainly never looks taller on screen and looks to be around the same mark as Cruise. Rob, do you agree that Cruise and Renner look to be pretty much the same height?
balrog said on 26/Dec/12
Renner looks around 5'8'' range maybe under but I think this guy looks shorter because there is no funny shoes with him. I mean of course no lifts and no elevators. Oh and Tom Cruise looked 2 in taller than him, proves that Cruise can pull off 5'10'', with boost on his shoes of course...
little sue said on 26/Dec/12
If Scarlett was wearing 4 inch heels though in the film they would give her 2 or 3 inches of height making her around 5ft 5 to 6 which if you add the couple of inches would make him around 5ft 8. Rachel Weisz in her high heels was still smaller than him and she is listed on here as 5ft 6.
jubb said on 25/Dec/12
In the movie the Avengers he only looks one or two inches taller than Scarlett Johansson. I just looked up Scarlett's height and she is only 5'3". So, that would make Jeremy only 5'5".
Johnnyfive said on 14/Dec/12
Renner looks short even on film. I think he's 172 MAX. He always gives me a 5'7-5'8 impression, never looks taller. He's well built but you can tell by his body proportions that he is on the short side.
KAMARION said on 24/Nov/12
I would say J.R is 5'8... I watched her interview with Ellen in 2010 and there was no height difference between them. 5'8 with shoes for sure.. :)
Willy said on 20/Nov/12
That's still not even his morning height - which I'd estimate at maybe 5'8'' flat -, but the downgrade was long overdue and is at least a step in the right direction.
said on 19/Nov/12
Rob put a sensible listing and stop listing celebs at their morning heights I thought this site was meant to be accurate.
[Editor Rob: for you King George I'll take a wee quarter inch away...]
Tyler said on 31/Oct/12
That's what I'm saying Aragorn!
Aragorn 5'11 said on 25/Oct/12
Rob, how can you list Jeremy Renner at 5'8.5 and Anthony Mackie at 5'11? There's barely an inch between them in this picture.
Willy said on 18/Oct/12
Arterton looks like a monster now, but the level ground seems to be rather uneven. In any case, Renner definitely needs a downgrade, but the question is to what mark. 5'7.75''? 5'7.5''? 5'7'' flat? Arterton could be a bit over 5'7'', so maybe both their listings need to be adjusted, but I do think that Gemma looked three inches shorter than Jake Gyllenhaal in Prince Of Persia, and Jake is nowhere near his claim of 6' or Rob's listing of 5'11.5''. He might be 5'10.5'' though.
said on 17/Oct/12
here's another photo willy from the same shot.
It looks to be a very big difference. I doubt gemma was walking in platform heels for that movie. The difference looks to be around 5 inches. I think either gemma needs to be upgraded or jeremy downgraded.
Willy said on 17/Oct/12
Arterton seems to be in the "upswing" of her walk, and Renner certainly isn't 5'8.5''. I for one doubt that he's even 5'8'' and wouldn't be surprised if he and Gemma would be very similar in barefoot height.
said on 16/Oct/12
If Jeremy renner is 5 ft 8.5 and gemma arterton is listed as 5'7 then somebody tell me what's going on with this picture.
now i know gemma is wearing a heeled boots but jeremy is not on flipflops either. there seems to be at least 4 inches between them. detract two inches from gemma's heels and she'd still be 1 inch taller. So gemma is either around 5'9/ 5 ft 9.5 OR jeremy is one inch shorter than 5'7.
RMD said on 12/Oct/12
I met Jeremy the other night, and he is taller than my son who is 5'7" no my son wasn't with me, but I hug my son every day and Jeremy was super nice and friendly and when I said bye for the night, got a hug, he was taller than my son...
Marky said on 19/Sep/12
Pattinson has never seen 6 feet. He's a strong 5'11. Renner is like 2.5 inches shorter. So hes 5'9" 5'9.5" with boots. So barefoot 5'8.5"
Willy said on 12/Sep/12
Renner started using lifts ten years ago when he was playing Jeffrey Dahmer, a role for which he was more than five inches too short. But the movie Dahmer also includes a barefoot scene, and the contrast to other scenes is obvious. Nevertheless, Jeremy looks rather tiny to me even when he's on Avengers-style lifts. Must be because of his boyish round face with big eyes, the short upper body, and his small shoulders. Only his legs can look comparatively long, but that's because, you know...
leonari said on 9/Sep/12
He isn't short just below average and looks it even on the big screen (Bourne, Avengers). Great actor.
said on 9/Sep/12
Here's a link that works. Click Here
Tyler said on 8/Sep/12
Here's a photo of Jeremy and Robert Pattinson. Pattinson is listed at 6'0.5". here, and in this photo there isn't much difference in height between them, like 2". Now Pattinson is wearing sneakers with little heel, like .5". Jeremy is wearing 1" boots. And I know that this photo is at a strange angle, but do you really see a 3.5" difference between them Rob? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, because honestly I think Renner can appear to be 5'9-5'9.5" in a lot of photos, this being one of them.
said on 8/Sep/12
Here's a picture of Renner standing next to Robert Pattinson, who's supposedly 6'. At most, there only looks like a 2"difference.
Willy said on 28/Aug/12
In an early scene of SWAT, Renner is two to two and a half inches shorter than Colin Farrell whom I can buy as a legitimate 5'10'' guy. So, based on that scene, I'd say that Renner is 5'7.75'' (172 cm). But he might be as low as 5'7'' flat if Farrell is actually more in the strong 5'9'' range.
hawkeye is a boss said on 2/Aug/12
5'7". Maybe 5'7.5" but who cares since he's literally a boss in the avengers and the new bourne legacy movie coming out
the shredder said on 1/Aug/12
Whatever height there are it is 2 inches max between them
Tyler said on 25/Jul/12
Wait, if Anthony Mackie is now 5'11", why has Renner not been upgraded as well Rob?
MR.HEIGHT said on 17/Jan/12
5'7.5" barefoot 5'8.75 with footwear
T.K. said on 15/Jan/12
All of those picks that slimer linked, well, all of the women are definitely wearing high heels. Nicole Kidman is a very tall woman with 3" heels on. Rosario Dawson, in that pic, was wearing stilettos, Johanson herself was wearing 3" heels, and Tom has been known to wear 2" lifts.
FACE said on 14/Jan/12
i think that he might be 176cm just over 5'9
andy said on 11/Jan/12
im pretty sure nicole kidman is wearing 5 inch heels she's prolly a 5"7 flat no taller give the guy a break theres more short ppl in america than tall. im pretty sure alot of u are like short or average height including myself assholes lmaooo
the shredder said on 10/Jan/12
This guy is about 5'7.5 and most likely wears flat footwear.
said on 8/Jan/12
here are some reference photos.. though we dont know what they are wearing for feet !!
with tom cruise
nicole kidman... lol !!
i know the chicks are probably wearing heels.. but still
said on 8/Jan/12
in this pic he looks an inch shorter than 5'8 Zac Efron Click Here
TruebloodFan said on 2/Jan/12
he's a weak 5'8 or 5'8 flat like Cruise, an inch or so shorter than strong 5'9 Farrell. Farrell is actually a good reference point cause he was on screen with both of them and the height difference is consistent. Cruise does not wear lifts in action scenes.
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 27/Dec/11
lol @ these 5'6 assertions
Renner is 5'8
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 22/Dec/11
He seemed close to Cruise in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, they're likely both 172-173 cm.
said on 21/Dec/11
HERE IS PROOF THAT JEREMY RENNER IS NO TALLER THAN 5'8.5"!
If you look at this video of him on The Ellen Show you'll clearly see it! At the 1:06 mark, when he is standing next to 5'7" Ellen, you can tell he is no more than an inch taller than her! Check it out for yourself!
HollywoodFan said on 19/Dec/11
When the Avengers were filming in Central Park,C), J.R. looked close to RDJ's height. He was wearing black combat style boots.
Silent d said on 7/Dec/11
I heard he was short. He was shorter than colin farrel in swat. SImon pegg is not 5 foot 10. He was only a little taller than megan fox in how to lose friends and alienate people. I would say he's 5 foot 9 max. 174cm is about right. About same height as tom cruise in mi4. Cruise prob wearing lifts. I heard someone say he is 5 foot 7. I could live with 174cm.
Scout said on 6/Dec/11
Jeremy is 5'10"... He and Simon Pegg are the same height
Paul said on 14/Nov/11
Same height as Tom Cruise in MI4 trailer.
Night100 said on 2/Nov/11
No. Jeremy is not 5'6 or 5'7, because I'm 5'8" and I've stood next to Jeremy and he was slightly taller than me, maybe an inch or two which would in fact make him 5'9", 5'10". I don't know how people are guessing by seeing him on screen. That's like guessing how many marbles are in the glass jar.
HS friend said on 1/Nov/11
Lol I know it's a little odd having two major actors from the same HS in Modesto ca. But I went to HS with both Jeremy and Tim Olyphant. Tim is 6'0 and Jeremy is shorter....around 5'8-5'9 and they are both Hot!! I had the crush on Tim but he liked my sister. Lol my luck.
linke said on 11/Oct/11
yeah,renner seemed 1 shorter than farell in swat
Anden said on 8/Oct/11
He's 5'6-5'7, looked about a head shorter than ben affleck in the town.
Jessica said on 6/Oct/11
Watched him in SWAT with Colin Farrell (who is generally estimated to be about 5'9). Renner is slightly shorter than Farrell, maybe an inch. If Farrell is about 5'9/5'10-ish, then Renner is perhaps 5'8.
Anon123 said on 21/Sep/11
I'd say he is around 5'6 to 5'7. No way is he over 5'8.
Tilda said on 15/Sep/11
I'd guess that he's around 175cm tall. But I don't care 'bout how tall he is, cuz he's still damn hot. c:
Adamz said on 5/Sep/11
I do think he is shorter than what you have listed here, Rob.
johnny said on 13/Aug/11
lol def downgrade to 5'7. he's no where near 5'8.5
Architect said on 29/Jul/11
Looks shortish to me, 5ft 7 maybe ?. Can't see taller than that, honestly.
cb said on 19/Jul/11
I met him in person....I am 5'5" and he was barely taller than me.....I would say 5'6" - 5'7" sounds pretty accurate....not even close to 5'10" lol
blusher said on 30/Jun/11
I think Rob's listing is accurate. He looked almost 5'9 in the Town next to Ben Affleck. 5' 8.5 evening height.
winstrol said on 21/Jun/11
I think he is 173 weak 178 peak
Midge said on 18/Jun/11
Looks a bit taller than Mark Wahlberg here who's listed at 5 ft 8 in (173 cm). Shoulder-height looks a fair amount taller which makes him look taller on his own, to me at least. Think his usual slim build makes him look smaller normally. He's beefed up for Avengers right now. goo.gl/1OEbw
Toby said on 3/May/11
Yeah Renner needs a downgrade. 170 cm
Gerrard189 said on 2/May/11
5'8.5" is very generous, I would say 5'7.5"
Winn said on 6/Apr/11
I'd give him 5'7" at best. Without any 'lifts'!
abc said on 19/Mar/11
he was shorter than scarlett johansson on the academy awards
Dean said on 9/Mar/11
Haha too right..this sites much more realistic he looks closer to 5'7 than 5'10!
said on 9/Mar/11Click Here
Says hes 5'10 and Tom cruise is 5'7 haha..what do you think about that rob?!
[Editor Rob: I'd say they've taken heights not from this site, but from another ;)]
JellO said on 7/Dec/10
The MI4 pics aren't that weird. Barefoot, I'd say Renner's maybe a inch taller than Cruise, which isn't much. And Cruise has taken so much flak for being "a midget", that he probably wears fairly big lifts.
bk said on 25/Nov/10
nobody seems to look as short as I thought when they're on Leno. Renner was on the other night and looked 5'9"
Elma said on 2/Nov/10
I thought Jeremy's height was 5 ft 10 in ???
said on 30/Oct/10
with 5-7.75 cruise and 5-7.5 paula patton..
tim said on 20/Apr/09
he's a noticeable amount shorter than colin farrell in swat. couldn't be too far off 5'8.
Gago said on 23/Feb/09
Rob, I met over the weekend at the Spirit Awards afterparty, he was in some bulky shoes, possibly lifts. I'll say 5'8, could be little shorter.
erin said on 12/Sep/08
i heard that he's 5'10"
Anon713232548 said on 23/Aug/08
I've met him and we posed for a picture together, so since I'm 5'7 and he was taller than me, I'd say Jeremy is no taller than 5'9.
anon1 said on 8/Feb/08
Looks atleast 5'9 in Jesse James. He was great in House MD, didn't look short, I'd say 5'9-5'9.5.
Lmeister said on 5/Dec/07
He was in one episode of CSI 2X06: ALTER BOYS. His measurement where 5ft8/170lbs.
said on 20/Sep/07
I know that movie pics aren't the best way to compare heights Click Here
but it seems that Jeremy is 5'9''with excellent posture, Sam Rockwell maybe an inch shorter and Casey Affleck the shortest of these three guys. I'd give Jeremy 5'9'', Sam Rockwell 5'8.25'' and Casey Affleck 5'7.75''.
