Overall 5'10.5 seems like a mark he'd be close to, could argue a fraction above or below, so 5'11 isn't a terrible claim from him. He stands quite relaxed a lot of the time when posing for photos, so I can see how he seems no more than 5'10 at times as well.
Walker0510 said on 20/Sep/22
No way he's above average height. I'd say 5'10" or even under.

Rob, In premiere pics from 'the King', him and Mendelsohn really don't look any different in height...Footwear is clearly visible too, and they both edge out Chalamet (wearing big boots).

If anything, Ben could have been a touch taller. Any case, 5-10.75 for Mendelsohn seems the best fit honestly...
Jtm said on 1/Feb/22
Lol he was clearly 2-3 inches taller than hardy in warrior.
Tys da 5'11 said on 31/Jan/22
He is clearly the same height as Tom hardy in photos although I'd say Tom had a slight edge in footwear advantage, I think Tom could be 5'9.5 but Joel looks 5'10 1/4 at best probably a flat 5'10

I'll also say 5'10.75" for Joel
Animus said on 16/Aug/19
I'd have guessed heavier than 175lbs, but that might primarily be due to his large head and masculine facial structure.
Lawson said on 4/May/19
No way. 5'8.5" watch movie it comes at night. Look at him beside 5'10.5" chistopher abott

Looked about as tall as Jason Bateman in the Gift, but I'll have to look again.
Jtm said on 20/Dec/18
to be fair he looks like he is bending his knees with crowe and hedges but apparently hedges was listed 5'10 here then got upgraded because of those pictures posted on his page yet crowe's footwear looks questionable and still struggling to look as tall as hedges. maybe crowe has lost a little height and is closer to 5'9 now?

Rob I believe that both Ethan Hawke and Joel Edgerton only measure at 5'10 1/4. I really can't see them edging out someone like Seth Macfarlane who is a strong 5'10" and can look like a weak 5'11 in some photos. So in my opinion Ethan and Joel both need downgrades to 178.4cm. What do you think Rob?
Editor Rob
I wouldn't rule the chance out, at times they have looked barely over 5ft 10...but other times I thought they could look 5ft 10.5-11 too.

Hey, Rob here is some pictures of some of the cast members of the new Boy Erased movie at its premiere in NYC. In the first picture, we see Joel Edgerton not measuring up to either Russel Crowe or Lucas Hedges who you both have listed as being shorter than Joel on this site (Click Here). In the second picture, Joel is again edged out by Nicole Kidman and Lucas Hedges who are both listed as being shorter than him (Click Here). Rob, could you maybe consider giving Joel a downgrade to 5'10"1/4 or at the very least 5'10"1/2?
Editor Rob
He could be 5ft 10.5, that's about the shortest I'd estimate, but I'm not sure he really is much different than Hedges, well within a fraction.
HonestSlovene said on 19/Jun/18
He has a 178-179 cm vibe to me, looks decent average but no more than that.
cgf said on 6/May/18
I believe he has to be shorter.
Flyin said on 21/Jan/18
Typical weaker 5'11, confirmed next to the 177cm Matt Damon earlier. 181.5cm right out of bed 179.5cm at night.

@JB - 5'9
You guys beat me to it...
Click Here= 3:50=5'11 and Will Smith points out 5'10.5 with a more serious tone...which is okay half an inch is much...there guys who add 3 whole inches.
Editor Rob
Will does have a little bit of cheek saying 5ft 10.5 back to Joel, when he himself gave himself a half inch upgrade to 6ft 2.5 πŸ˜†
JB - 5'9 said on 21/Dec/17
@Editor Rob: Rob has this been confirmed now? Skip to 3.50 in the video! Even Will Smith knows the difference between 5’10.5 and 5’11. Joel didn’t disagree either so he obviously knows he 5’10.5.

Editor Rob
Will is a funny guy.
grizz said on 21/Dec/17
How tall is Joel Edgerton?
Joel Edgerton :"I'm 5'11".
Will Smith:"You're more like 5'10.5"
Even though he's right,it's ironic coming from a guy who inflates his own height by an entire inch
Anonymous said on 20/Dec/17
In a video with will smith about google questions, one question was holl tall he is, and joel said 5'11 and the will smith correct him with 5'10.5 and joel just laughed
I think that is his height.
Animus said on 17/Sep/17
Leo DiCaprio looks around 2cm taller than this guy. Edgerton could be more of a strong 179cm guy.
BT said on 14/Feb/17
Imo Bateman when standing tall beats him by about a half inch, maybe 3/4. 5'10.25-5'10.5 for Edgerton and 5'10.75-5'11 for Bateman.
delancey said on 10/Feb/17
Honestly think 5'10 range max. Though 5'9 is too low for him.
Guest66 said on 7/Feb/17
Watching him next to Maguire I could not see more than 2.5in between them, and I also think that DiCaprio was roughly 1in taller than him.
Rob, can he be 5'10.25 ?
Editor Rob
5ft 10.5 I feel is a believable estimate, but he can pull off looking near 5ft 11, a few times yeah I could see him near a solid 178cm too!
RainbowBlaster5 said on 24/Oct/16
If Leo is only 1.81 (unlikley) then this guy must 1.78 , no way there is only 1cm between them.
Aaron Zamora said on 24/Jun/16
Are you going to downgrade him since you downgraded Bateman and Bateman was relatively taller than him?
Editor Rob
they look within a similar range from what I've seen.
Aaron Zamora said on 5/Apr/16
If Leo get's a down grade is Joel getting a downgrade too rob and many other celebs? or how does it work
Editor Rob
Leo would probably not effect much at 11.25, because most people have a range of height they can look, sometimes one person looks at the top end of the range more often than the lower end.
BT said on 3/Apr/16
He can go from barely looking 5'10 to looking pretty much 5'11.

5'11 Is a normal shout out.

Lets be serious here most normal people who are not insecure don't even know there is a morning and evening height. I have spoke to several people who had no idea you shrink throughout the day.

They are also not likely to hang out on forums discussing peoples height, since they're not extremely insecure like us guys (don't deny it, you know you are, or this wouldn't matter nor would morning to evening height)

I'm sure this dude like most normal people got measured in the morning and was like cool this is my height. Without thinking "wait, people shrink in the day, hmm how much will i shrink".

I thought he was a solid couple inches taller than Tom Hardy in Warrior but yeah he generally looks on the weak side of 5'11".
MD said on 30/Oct/15

This is not an almost 5'11" guy. Here he is with 5'9" Johnny Depp last month:

Click Here

This guy is closer to 5'10" than he is to 5'11" even charitably giving some wiggle room for possible footwear differences/lifts. There isn't close to a full 2" difference between the two.
Editor Rob
I think Depp's footwear is a fraction more, I wouldn't put joel under 5ft 10.5 there based on that.
Mike 1.81 said on 27/Oct/15
just saw The Gift Movie, appears a police record picture, his picture 69 inch so 1,76 with shoes. This Guy is less than 1.76 barefoot, and Christian bale, Di caprio and bateman aLL ARE LESS THAN 1,80 CM BAREFOOT.
kevin said on 7/Sep/15
judging by numerous premiere photos id guess:
edgerton 179-180cm
dicaprio 181cm
bale 182cm
bateman 180cm
Judd said on 13/Jan/15
5'10.5-10.75" is what he does look in my opinion
cole said on 12/Jan/15
@Dmeyer: I too think 5'10.75 might be closer, but 5'11 is fair enough. He didn't strike me as 2 cm shorter than Leo though, in fact he and Leo looks quite similar compared to Tom Hardy.
Dmeyer said on 11/Jan/15
5'10.75 is closer 5cm under courtney and 2cm under leo
Editor Rob
at times he can look 179 range, other times more.

Sam said on 15/Jul/14
Even if he is height-consicous in photos with his head and posture Roth's and Courtney's bodies are clearly closer to the camera and makes Edgerton appear a bit shorter in those particular. In stills from the upcoming Exodus movie, Edgerton and Christian Bale look very similar in height...I've defended Bale as a six footer in the past but this is the strongest evidence I've seen he's more of a 5'11" guy besides being similar to Matthew McConaughey.

MD said on 20/Mar/14
Sam, I don't think either of those two are standing taller than Edgerton in those shots. In fact, it seems to me that Joel likes to stand to the back and lift his chin to create some kind of illusion. I'm not sure what kind of illusion he's thinking he's creating, because it actually makes him look shorter, but he's kind of craning upwards in every shot.
Sam said on 19/Mar/14
I am starting to think that he's under the 5'11" mark as well, although in MD's photos both Roth and Courtney seem to be standing straighter and are closer to the camera, thus appearing relatively taller. Edgerton seemed to be about an inch shorter than Leonardo DiCaprio. On the other hand, he did seem to be two inches taller than Tom Hardy. The difference between DiCaprio and Hardy generally looks about 2.5-3 inches. Anyway, Edgerton may be more 5'10.5". BTW, pretty cool that his brother directs Bob Dylan's music videos.
MD said on 18/Mar/14

I think you may have to take another look at this one. Here he is with a legit 5'11" Eli Roth (to the right):

I think he has a rather solid physique that can pull off looking tall(ish) in solo shots. But, it's pretty clear in pictures with these actors that he's struggling with average height. A big part of this, too, is that though he has a rather proportional physique, he looks to have an unusually small head for a guy his size.
Maynard said on 17/Mar/14
I met Joel Edgerton. I am between 5'10"-5'11" (diurnal range!) and was wearing sandals. He was in boots and definitely shorter than me.
Vecrotus said on 18/Oct/13
I thought he would be taller since had about 3 inches on 5 ft 9 Tom Hardy in Warrior.
avery_t said on 7/Sep/13
he LOOKS 1 to 1.5 inches taller than Tobey Maguire in Gatsby. Also, I'm pretty sure I saw him at an Equinox in lower NYC. But I'm not positive. I stand 5' 7.5" and he seemed at most 2 inches taller. maybe only 1 inch taller. but it may not have been him.
cole said on 23/Jul/13
Rob if you are going to keep Leo Dicaprio at 5'11.5 I suggest you put Joel at 5'11.5 as well, they are the same height (both 5'11).
The Axe said on 31/Mar/13
He has to be taller than 5'11" because Kurt angle (who plays Koba) has his bill height listed as 6'0" and Joel was taller than him...

joel edgerton looks a solid 5 foot 11 and tom hardy looks about 5 foot 8

Looks a good 4-5 cm taller than Hardy, solid 179-180 cm.

I met him on Brunswick st, Melbourne years back when he was in 'The secret life of us' and hadn't reached Hollywood yet. I was surprised to see how short he was in real life- I had a bit of a TV crush on him and his height dissapointed me. I can guarantee you that Joel is no taller that 5'9" with shoes. I'm 5'8, wasn't in a high heels and we were bang on eye level. I even felt taller than him at times.

good to know know hes no taller than 5-8 barefoot. In any picture with hardy hes got no less than a three inch advantage making hardy 5-5. Dont think so.
jake, 1.82 m said on 26/Oct/11
Joel Edgerton could be 181 cm and Hardy more 175-176 cm range. I mean Hardy himself did claim 5ft 9in.
Anon said on 22/Sep/11
Met Joel in beverly hills last month and stood right next to him. 5'11" seems about right.
MD said on 10/Sep/11
Totally agree, Chris. Though, I think it proves that Hardy is nowhere near 5'9.75". In the pretty famous shot of the movie, now, where they are both in the same footwear standing face-to-face (nearly forehead-though-forehead) in the ring, there is AT LEAST a two inch difference, and really it looks like three, to me.
Chris175 said on 9/Sep/11
seems a lot taller than tom hardy in warrior, strong 5-11 in my opinion

Ed said on 3/Apr/06
I think 5ft11 is pretty close for Joel. Watch Attack of the Clones, and the scenes in which Joel and Hayden Christensen are in together. You'll see they are almost identical. Now Hayden is a reported 6ft1, Rob has him at 6ft.05, which is probably pretty accurate, I might give him 5ft11.5 at the most though. And as far as Orlando Bloom goes, the dude is always wearing cowboy boots or those big chunky soled shoes that Colin Farrel wears. I think he is 5ft9 to 5ft9.5 at most, and close to 5ft11 with his big boots.
MOF said on 11/Feb/06
I'm not sure, he was an inch shorter than Orlando Bloom in Ned Kelly... Did they make Orlando wear special 19 century lift?
D. Ray Morton said on 7/Feb/06
Totally agree with this listing. Definitely 5'11".
A-Bomb said on 30/Nov/05
Ok I've always being meaning to look up this guy since I saw him in King Arthur recently, but I always forget. I have met Joel a couple of time some two or so years back. He used to shop with his then girlfirend Cathy Freeman (5'4" - 5'5")at my former place of work. He's minimum 5'11", I'd say more likely 5'11 1/2". I remember he was only slightly shorter than the 6'0" tall manager I had at the time.
