How tall is Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp's Height

5ft 9in (175.3 cm)

American actor best known for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Other notable films he has starred in have been Edward Scissorhands, Alice in Wonderland and Sleepy Hollow. One interviewer clearly thought he wasn't the 5ft 10 Depp has always got listed at (and was listed here at that height): "Its strange because although Johnny Depp is actually only 5' 7", he gives the illusion of being really tall.". Although he himself is quoted in the Spectator (5/10/94) as saying "I'm not the biggest guy in the world by any means -- I'm only five-foot-eleven"

Depp probably is 174 cm, but he could be 174.5 cm as well. Pine at 184 cm makes sense. If you look at Pine next to Colin Farrell, he looks 3" taller, which suggests Pine rounded down from 6'0.5" to 6' while Colin rounded up from 5'9.5" to 5'10". it's interesting to see what two people rounding can do to throw off a height difference. Both were being relatively honest with their claims yet it made a 3" difference sound like 2".

173 cm is pushing it for Depp, though. He did look around that with my friend and Pacino, but Johnny can slouch at times.

Slim don't let the downgraders give you any more influence... I actually agreed with you on a lot a while back but now you're going off the rail
I agree, chris pine is 184 area and some users had the tendency to guess him at the flat 6'. Don't worry, my old form will return. As for Johnny. He's 174-175 anything more or less is wrong.

Donnie Brasco is my favorite, but then Al Pacino is the greatest actor to me and is the outstanding performance of the film, imo, but Depp is great as well with a more subtle performance and less eccentric character than many of his others. Blow was very good as well and Edward Scissorhands is a classic. While it's certainly one of Depp's least challenging roles and not among his best performances, if we're speaking more of the film than his acting, Nightmare on Elm Street is one of the true classics of its genre so he can at least stake claim to a big role in another great film. The most recent Depp film I've seen was The Tourist, which from what I hear is more indicative of where his career has gone as opposed to a pretty stellar career prior. Other than that, the only other of the films he starred in during the last decade I've seen was Public Enemies, which I saw once in theaters. That was certainly much better than The Tourist. I only saw the first Pirates film and I enjoyed Sleepy Hollow, but in general, I'd say he had a solid first 20-25 years with the occasional turkey.

As for height, 5'8.75" is more the higher end I'd guess him at. Between platforms like this: Click Here and boots like this: Click Here Depp is fond of footwear in the 1.5"-1.75" range, which could account for him looking a more solid 5'9" or even 5'9.5" at times. But when you see him looking not even 3" taller than a weak 5'6" Al Pacino at times, it's difficult to rule out 5'8.5", imo: Click Here

Rob, what's the lowest you'd put Depp at?
Editor Rob: about 50,000 leagues under the sea after watching The Lone Ranger!

but, really I think about 5ft 8.75 as a low guess.
Jay da 5'9 said on 3/Sep/17
Wow, thought this guy was a lot taller! In movies he looked at least 5'11 but when I see pictures of him on the red carpet he doesn't look near that height. That's the illusion of movies I guess.
Rising - 174 cm said on 31/Aug/17
That's actually a good pic, but look at Cohen's head. He's not standing as straight as Depp above the waist. He looks 6" taller there, but I'd give Cohen the 6'3" he claims as he looked shorter than Conan O'Brien who I assume is about 6'3.5". So Depp looks 5'9" there to me if we consider posture a wash, but look at Depp's boots -- thick with a big heel.

But look at this event where Depp's thick boots give him a clear advantage over Cohen's sneakers: Click Here Click Here

SBC clearly has worse posture there, but even with his lean and less footwear, he still makes Depp look about 174 cm, imo, or the average guess(174.5) if SBC is 191 cm as Rob has him. Depp looked 175 cm with Cohen at the People's Choice Awards -- at least in this pic: Click Here -- but had boot advantage again: Click Here

In general, I'm not as confident trying to peg exact differences between people 6-7 inches apart since the taller man can drop more height than you'd think, but I'll try to look up videos when I have time, which may tell us just how much SBC toweras Depp. Regardless, I'm convinced Depp is 5'8.5", or at best, 5'8.75" and his fondness for thick boots would have people insisting he was 5'7" max if they applied the standard they do with Brad Pitt. But in all seriousness, the type of boots he's worn in these pictures will give him at least a fraction advantage over a lot of other shoes and boots.

Weak 5'9" these days
Tyler Durden said on 2/Aug/17
Anyone have an idea what size head Johnny depp has? Like he appears to have a small head, yes? I was trying to get his glasses, the MOSCOT Lemtosh, he wears 44mm, but I think his head is significantly smaller than mine (I have a 22 & 1/2 inch head which is right between MEDIUM and LARGE for hat sizes). Seems like he has a small head/hat size with even smaller facial features, so 44mm glasses like his might look too tiny on my bigger head/facial features.
Rising - 174 cm said on 1/Aug/17
@Slim: Yeah, I think he just happened to put his foot on its side for some reason. I caught myself a few times going up on my toes for pictures and it honestly wasn't to try to look taller, it was just a nervous habit standing still waiting for a photo to be taken. And yeah, Cruise isn't 173 cm. Those boots probably give Tom 6 cm with the lifts inside - about as big as I've seen him wear - and you can also note Cruise still has only 1"-1.5" on 171 cm Jerry Bruckheimer who was normal flat shoes. But Depp's boots will give him a minimum 4 cm, so Tom would probably look about as tall as Depp in normal shoes. Tom can look like a 174-175 cm guy at times, but then again, a 70 year old Sly Stallone can still look a good 178, possibly 179 cm when he wears lifts and he's 174 cm these days, imo, arguably even a strong 173 so Tom isn't that tall.

@Anthony: I agree, he looks 174. 175 is going to look taller with Pacino, who is lucky if he scraped 5'6".
Anthony said on 29/Jul/17
Always gives me a 174cm impression. Certainly not more.
Slim 182 cm said on 29/Jul/17
@Risingg, I incorrectly guessed his brown boots were stuffed with internal heels. Hence the weird position of the leg, it's likely he stood on the side of his foot for more height or some weird reason, overall, he's just a boot wearer, no internal/external heels like others.
Slim 182 cm said on 29/Jul/17
Yes, weak 5'9 is a decent guess for Depp. so is 5'9.

That 5'11 claim makes me wanna 🤢

I've come to the conclusion that celebs in 5'9-5'10 range claim 5'11 and celebs in the 5'11 range claim 6' or 6'1.

Rise, if Depp is 174.5 then cruise in lifts failed to edge out Depp ruling out 173 impossible for cruise.
Rising - 174 cm said on 28/Jul/17
@Slim: Which photo? I don't see any lifts, just 1.7" cowboy boots with Cruise and Bruckheimer and platforms with Amber Heard that probably add at least that much. Now Cruise fits your description as those lifts are basically pushing him up on his toes (i.e., the Diesel effect).

I think Depp is more 5'8.5" honestly. He looked a weak 5'8" in my friend's photo as I said and his posture really wasn't bad. I saw a photo of myself with this same friend and I could look taller than Depp did, though my friend was leaning with me and not with Depp. Depp honestly looked a weak 5'8" in the Donnie Brasco premiere photo I posted with Al Pacino as well. I'm not saying he's that short, but you notice that even with cowboy boots, he only looks 2" taller than Bruckheimer who is a solid 5'7" or 171 cm. That would make Johnny 5'10.25" in cowboy boots, while a 5'9" guy would be closer to 5'11" than 5'10", but a 5'8.5" guy would be a bit over 5'10" in cowboy boots. The average guess is actually exactly 174.5 cm and personally, I think that'd be better as it would put him weak 5'9" range.
Slim 182 cm said on 24/Jul/17
it's come to the point that we all agree on 5'9 for Depp, and you could disable the comments, nobody would criticise the decision.
Slim 182 cm said on 21/Jul/17
In the top left photo, his lifts were so massive, his feet fell out of the shoe.
even said on 20/Jul/17
hes exactly 175 cm .
Slim 182 cm said on 17/Jul/17
I assume when he wears normal shoes etc 2cm sole, he slips 3 cm lifts in them, so 180 in shoes, and that's why he gets away with his 5'10 claim.
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Jul/17
Slim, I was responding to JC1994. I don't know if he knows metric or not. Perhaps he meant an extra 1.5 cm(5/8 of an inch) over normal shoes? I agree with 5'9" for Depp, though.
Slim 181 cm said on 15/Jul/17
5'9 max for Depp it is.
Slim 181 cm said on 15/Jul/17
Okay man, just say 1.5 cm from now on.
Slim 181 cm said on 14/Jul/17
Depp and pitt are wearing lifts 24/7, it's no secret, as 175-180 are not tall these days, 6'0 or 6'1+ is tall, so they feel insecure being shorter than other man and wear lifts.

I'm a nutshell they desperately want to dominate/hold their own(heightwise of course) agianst tall men.
RisingForce said on 14/Jul/17
Converse themselves only give about 5/8ths of an inch.
JC1994 said on 13/Jul/17
@slim 181cm
He was wearing work boots that have the same amount as my boot those work boots usually give 5/8ths of an inch and Leonardo dicaprio was probably wearing tennis shoes I'll tell you this I'm 5'9" myself and when I wear those boots they would make me appear 5'10" guys that I know that are 5'10" flat when wearing converses would pretty much eye to eye with me depp definitely would be appear 5'9" 1/2

Leo looked a strong 5'10 in "what's eating Gilbert grape" tbh, and yes I'm sure Depp MIGHT have worn elevating shoes in "public enemies". yes, he may of, to match up to 5'11.5-6'0 Christian bale. And in Gilbert grape he did look 5'9.5 but it MAY have been lifts.
Slim 181 cm said on 13/Jul/17
174-176 for sure. Most will agree on this.
Slim 181 cm said on 13/Jul/17
RisingForce, everything is possible, remember? 176 is higher on my chances than yours. But I do honestly believe Depp has a higher chance of being a strong 5'9 rather than being a 5'8.5 and definitely a higher chance of 177 than 173. At 17 years old, he was still taller than Depp. So as for him and machio being late bloomers I can agree on.
RisingForce said on 12/Jul/17
I'd have to go look to say for sure, but I doubt DiCaprio was even 5'11" when he made "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" since he grew late during the mid 90s, iirc, much like Ralph Macchio went from not even 5'8" to 5'8.5" in the mid to late 80s. I have little doubt DiCaprio is currently 5'11"-5'11.5"m but I don't think he was back then. I'd say Depp is 5'9" max, but could look taller with thick footwear, which he often wears.
Slim 181 cm said on 12/Jul/17
Johnny Depp is 5'9.25 max, looked it next to 5'11.5 max DiCaprio in "what's eating Gilbert grape". And he held his own compared to 5'11.75 listed Christian Bale in "public enemies"
Slim 181 cm said on 9/Jul/17
Weak 5'9 is plausible.
RisingForce said on 7/Jul/17
As for Depp and Cruise, well Depp looks anywhere from 1-2 cm taller that day depending on posture: Click Here Click Here But Tom's boots and lifts give him a noticeable advantage even over Depp's 1.7" cowboy boots so probably at least 2.3" as Tom nearly looks like he's on his toes in Rob's photo, so at worst, I think Depp has to be an inch taller than Tom, who I think is 5'7.5" barefoot. But as I said, a better reference is Bruckheimer, who doesn't have lifts or heels. I give Johnny 5'8.5" or 5'8.75". He can look a flat 5'8" with loose posture. Remember this full photo I posted a few months back of Depp and Al Pacino: Click Here Pacino likely wasn't more than a weak 5'6" and it's not impossible he had shrunk a bit by that time as he was 56-57 years old.
Slim 181 cm said on 7/Jul/17
@Lanaka, 5'9??? More like 5'8.5. 😂
No seriously if ray liota is 5'11.5 than Depp is 5'8.5 given that ray was 3 inches taller than Depp during "Blow". But he's still 5'9 in the mornings though.
Depps height during the day:

Morning 5'9
Evening 5'8.5
Night 5'8.25

@lanaka, in case you don't already know, @Editor Rob only lists afternoon heights... otherwise all celebs would be listed half inch taller.

after seeing him next to tom cruise 🚢 I'd give a 5"8.5 downgrade, even Rob admitted he'd look OVER 2 inches shorter than 5"11 listed Todd Lowe
Depp is 5"8.75 max in the evening. I knew there was something wrong about being listed 178 on google just like Jude law was 182....
even said on 5/Jul/17
hes five foot nine hes as tall as me
RisingForce said on 4/Jul/17
A good point of reference there is Bruckheimer. Depp looks 2" max taller than Bruckheimer, imo, even in 1.7" cowboy boots, while Bruckheimer seems to be in normal 2.5-3 cm shoes. Johnny Depp is actually one of the few near 5'9" guys to not only look no taller than Mario Lopez, but even a bit shorter: Click Here Even not not quite 5'9" guys like Jason Statham and a 50+ year old Jean-Claude Van Damme look taller than Mario. Funny thing is Mario and Johnny both claim 5'11" while in reality, I think both are 5'8.5". I had believed Depp was at least 5'9" too, but I swear he looked a flat 5'8" in my friends pic taken when Depp was far too young to have lost anything.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 4/Jul/17
5'11"? Rob, as much as I wouldn't claim 5'11", this isn't as bad as Chris Jericho claiming 6'0"!! 😂😂😂

I wouldn't dare to claim 5'11" even if I was taller than Depp by a bit more than a cm.

Rob, I wouldn't go lower than 5'9", but 5'11"? Makes a solid to big 5'9"er like me puke 🤢🤢🤢🤢
Editor Rob: yeah, I'd love for Johnny Depp to meet an honest bloke like Todd Lowe in person, wearing his own cowboy like that time he met Cruise....he'd daren't say 'I'm 5ft 11 too' in Todd's presence, he'd look over 2 inches smaller probably...
RisingForce said on 1/Jul/17
"Weak" and "if that" may be the key words. He doesn't look much more than 5'8" recently with 5'7" Jerry Bruckheimer: Click Here Depp didn't have cowboy boots like above, but I think he still had boots.

He can definitely pull off over 5'9", but he's worn some seriously thick footwear at times. First time I noticed it was back at the 2009 Bahamas Film Festival: Click Here Click Here Then following year at the Berlin photocall for The Tourist: Click Here At the Tourist Madrid premiere as well: Click Here Then pretty good pair of platform shoes more recently with Amber Heard: Click Here

If he's 55 in age and close to his 60s almost chances are if you listed him at his current height maybe when he was in his younger years he could of been 176 cms this might be the case rob.
S.J.H said on 20/Jun/17
Since he was describe being atually at 5'7 then he might be just 5'7 barefoot or 5'7.5 and wear lift all the time. Should have custom made lift's from 2.25 to 3' range
Mr S said on 13/Jun/17
If anybody says "Only 5'11" chances are that they aren't. 5'11" is above average, or at least a strong average, in most Countries. Therefore a genuine 5'11" guy wouldn't say "only" as if it was a really short height.
James said on 9/Jun/17
I don't think Depp is over 5ft 8in and most likely closer to 5ft 7inches. In A nightmare on elm street john Saxon has a good two or three inches on him. Saxon was probably still in the five feet ten range at that time. Depp was wearing sneakers and being new to Hollywood probably wasn't concerned with wearing lifts as he probably does today.

I can't buy 176 cm for Depp, except maybe the morning. He didn't exactly look tall with Pacino. Just look at what a 5'9.5" guy like James Caan looked like with Pacino or even a 5'8.75" Marlon Brando. A photo I saw of Depp with my friend from the 90s made him look like a 5'8" guy! I think a 5'8.5" guy who can look taller with his build and at times, footwear, but also look a bit shorter when he slouches.

5'8 for deep
RisingForce said on 9/May/17
Seeing a friend's pic with him, I think 5'9" could be generous. When you think about it, Depp looks an inch and a half taller than 5'7" Bruckheimer above, maybe 2 inches max if he didn't have the slight lean, but Depp's cowboy boots give him a half inch advantage over Bruckheimer's shoes, so that would suggest Depp at no taller than 5'8.5", which I can buy, though I would normally expect Cruise to look at least 5'8.5", if not 5'9" with the lifts he has there and Depp does edge him by maybe near 2 cm. How tall does Depp look here with Scorsese? Click Here Click Here Is Scorsese 5'3" now or was that his peak height? I only see 5'8" range with a 171 cm or 5'7.5" max De Niro: Click Here Click Here and here: Click Here 5'8" Ice Cube was actually taller in 2 pics from that same night, but closer to the camera than Depp. I think Johnny's footwear from cowboy boots to the small platforms he wears and some years back, potential elevators with Sean Connery can maybe account for his fluctuating height.

Willes188 said on 29/Apr/17
I think this listing is fair, but nothing lower than 175-176cm i feel. And i think he could be scraping 5'10 be the hair in the morning at around 177-177.5cm
delancey said on 25/Apr/17
I think he's fallen into the 5'8 range these days. I still buy some sort of 5'9 for his youth though. To my eyes he looked 175/176 cm in his roles in the 90's.
RisingForce said on 21/Apr/17
Depp is taller than Cruise, but you're right it's an inch max, but Cruise has bigger footwear since Depp only has cowboy heels while Cruise has lifts in his boots (note how Tom's knees are higher and the angle of his foot steeper). Depp's boots add maybe 1.6" while Tom's probably add 2.3". Interestingly, 5'7" Jerry Bruckheimer doesn't measure up too poorly to them considering he has the least footwear.
The_Force_Is_Strong_With_This_One said on 19/Apr/17
He seems about level with Tom Cruise with similar boots. Maybe an inch taller at most.
RisingForce said on 13/Apr/17
He could certainly look under 5'9" with Pacino: Click Here Pacino has better posture and is a bit closer, but Depp looks surprisingly short there. He didn't really looked tall next to Pacino in Donnie Brasco the way many average height guys can. Both had similar heeled boots.

RisingForce said on 19/Mar/17
Cruise has really big elevator boots there, at least 2.25" looking at the angle of his foot and how high his knees are compared to Depp who has 1.5" heels himself. 5'7" Jerry Bruckheimer is the best reference there. I use to Depp was 5'9.5", but now I think he's a weak 5'9" max. Cruise is about 5'7.5" barefoot, almost certainly in the 171-172 cm range.

Sally (5'11 said on 28/Feb/17
I don't know Johnny Depp's height. But I do know the casting director from Public Enemies went to great lengths to give Depp the illusion of height. Public Enemies was partially filmed in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, which is a commutable distance from my home. The casting director put out a call for local police officers/sheriff's deputies to be extras in the movie. One requirement was the officers/deputies had to be under 5'10". This eliminated at least half of the potential extras because this region of Wisconsin has a large population of people of German, Dutch, and other northern European ethnicity.

I grew a quarter of an inch this summer, and Rob says it's perfectly natural for me to claim 5'10 even though I fall a fraction under in the evening at 5'9.75, since it's only a difference of 6 millimeters.

Funnily enough, I am perceived as being much taller than I am actually am. Like four inches taller.
Bobby said on 27/Feb/17
I am 5'10, and Depp doesn't have the presence that a 5'10 person would have, I always thought he was in reality, closer to 5'8 or thereabouts. That's how tall he appeared in Pirates of the Caribbean, very average height.
ks said on 27/Feb/17
I know someone who's met Depp in person. She's 5'8 and said she was surprised by how short he was, probably around 5'7.
berta said on 7/Feb/17
have he always been listend 175 ore have he had a 176 listing before. to me he can look taller than some other 175 listed men on the site. i think he could be 176
Editor Rob: he's been stuck on 5ft 9 for a very long time.
S.J.H said on 6/Feb/17
Depp is 5'8 and 5'10 in thick boots, 5'11 in lifts.
delancey said on 29/Jan/17
@Danimal Yeah they are on pretty much every single page. I think easily 5'9 range in his youth, but could potentially be starting to slip into the high 5'8s as he gets older.
delancey said on 28/Jan/17
5'9" range in his prime. Is it possible that age could be starting to shrink him a bit into the upper 5'8"s rob?

Some folk here need to calm down a bit.. Downgrading a person's (alleged or simply inflated) height should not be conflated to 'hating' or 'jealousy'-at least not within a sensible, rational, and free-speaking world. Johnny Depp simply looks-and actually is-shorter than 5ft10-6ft. Nothing more, nothing less. Live with it and 'Peace Out'. It's not as if your livelihood or income will be emended reliant upon some celebrity's high or low height/stature.. We're just here to 'kill' some time. Just chill..

BTW, Rob, since Johnny D is listed as circa 5ft9, perhaps Alan Cumming requires a downgrade as he's clearly shorter than Johnny D.

Sandy Cowell said on 17/Jan/17
I couldn't agree more that Johnny comes over as a lot taller!
Not that it bothers me! I think he's great! I prefer him in his more sensible roles. My favourites are 'Donnie Brasco', 'the Ninth Gate', 'Dead Man', 'Sleepy Hollow' and 'Sweeney Todd', but I have at least 16 of them to choose from!
What really made me like him as a person was finding out that he was a mega-fan of 'The Fast Show' and had made many copies (even for his Mum!) and would never go away to make a film without taking his 'Fast Shows' with him to cheer himself up! I even know he said "arse!" to Paul Whitehouse, who was very amused and gave him a part in 'The Last Fast Show Ever' as a long-haired American gentleman who walks into the 'Suit You' store to be measured up for a suit! Magic! Actually, Johnny even looked tall in that sketch!
It is hard to believe he is an average 5ft9, but who cares? Not I!

for what its worth I stood by his replica at the madame trudeaux wax museum in SF, I'm about 68.5 inches and we were about the same height (though hard to factor footwear, he had boots and I had thick healed running shoes)...the way he looks in his suits (pictured above) which I am assuming are Regular in size confirms my estimation (unaltered R suit sleeve lengths are borderline too long for me as they seem to be for him)

Did he really said he was "only 5'11"?? Another Mario Lopez? Why do they have to lie?
5'8" for both.
If Depp was 5'11" he would reach 6'1ish with those high heel boots he always wears, right?
Not even Pitt is 5'11"
Editor Rob: yes Hijo, every quote I have heard or seen in print. I believe this was at one of these press conferences.
OPTIC2 said on 25/Dec/16
Hmm another 5'7"-5'9" guy trying to look above average...I see a trend here. I mean if you're not under 5'6" you shouldn't really be freaking out in this way. I espc don't get 5'8" guys like depp ,robert downey junior, mark Wahlberg all desperately attempting to look taller when they're already a fine height. My best friend is 5'7" and he's the most sought after guy in my class...

S.J.H said on 15/Nov/16
Brad Pitt , Johnny Depp and Tom Cruise they were all lifts wearer especially Depp and Cruise they fit it all the time. Pitt would wear some smaller lifts sometimes to apear just 6'0 with it he is more like a 179cm guy and other 2 wear elevator shoes 6-7cm not surprsie if they barefoot is a huge differences.

Depp 172cm
Cruise 170cm

KMesh: He has always been keen on wearing old boots with quite a heel. Always take that in count when looking at photos of Depp. I don't think he's overly height conscious, he just love them boots.

I have a feeling johnny depp is around 5'7. On the late show, Colbert said "i've been 5'11 since i was 14, johnny depp is a munchkin. I think someone said colbert is shorter than JD or something. That was his response. I'm 5'6 and my uncle is 5'9. The top of my head reaches the middle of his nose. My guess is 5'6-5'7 max. JD has been listed as 5'10 on imdb in the past. Why would a 5'11 man call someone who is only an inch shorter munchkin?

Johan, 60kg range is very skinny for a 5'9" guy (unless they're 5% bodyfat and muscular). I'm 5'9.5" (177cm) and 76-77kg (170lbs) at 16-17% bodyfat and I'm considered slim/lean by all people. Some say I'm small-built. I could buy 175cm-176cm for Depp. He's not under 5'8.5.

I know plenty of guys who are 65 kg or so and 175 cm. Yes its thin but not super thin. I have a friend who is 181 cm and 66 kg thats thin :)

I would say your in that average range yourself, not thin or overweight or anything. Most regular guys I see who are 180 cm weigh in the 82-84 kg range.

True Johnny has gained weight recently but for example in the above pic with Cruise, thats not over 70 kg.

Pics and film make people look heavier as well, how many times have you heard someone say how skinny a celeb is?

I saw a few politicians here during my work and on Tv one of them looks quite fat. In person he was overweight but not really fat and also much smaller than I expected.

All I'm gonna say is cruise is wearing elevators 2" and I mean he is supposed to be 5'7 but I would say Johnny was 5'10 seriously in the day he's getting older now and 5'9 is prob accurate but who knows only Johnny himself maybe

I would cut him some slack, he did also he didn't know. 5'11" is an popular height too claim, when nobody knows their height. Though I'm 5'9" myself, and out of all the celebs he looks easily my height. Though i think tom hardy might edge me out, Rob said he thought Tom Hardy looked closer too 5'10" when he met him, but again I seen Hardy near inaminate objects look my height. Though the weird thing is some of the guys that are listed 5'9.25 an height I used to think I was look like they could be 5'9.75 though again it's not that far away there's guys that are 5'8" Ho look portion ally similar too someone that's 6'2"

Yes I can accept that for sure and its also a sensitive subject as in the US apparently a man is guilty until proven innocent!

It just was very surprising to me how people will exaggerate things like Height/Weight and other factors when it suits their purpose. I would be very surprised if Johnny is anything more than 75kilo even with weight gain.

What do you think Rob about all the accusations flying at Depp?

I read an article today where a friend of his soon to be ex -wife describes him as being almost 90 kilogram compared to her 60 kilogram. Completely destroys the credibility of her friend's testimony as she is already grossly exaggerating the facts. At 5ft 9 he weighs probably also 60 kilo range or at most 70.

I weigh around 90 kilo and am 10 cm taller and look far bigger than Depp does.

James C said on 7/Jun/16
@Greg and the thing is actual 5'11" guys can pull off looking 6ft or they would claim they're 6ft. Another thing I notice is that legit 5'10" guys claim 6ft. I used to think your one height only and you don't shrink during the day. Before I found out more information about height and I first got interested in it my mom measured me at an sub 5'10" which is 5'9 3/4ths using the stand against the wall method, and I was also measured at 5'9 1/2 at an doctors office. So I'll admit I didn't always claim 5'9" like I do now I used to claim I was 5'10" and acted like I was that height and my step dad also claims 5'10 him and I are roughly the same height I might be taller then him though he's like my size. I knew people in high school who claimed 5'10" too 5'11" and they where an half inch shorter or the same size. So I thought I was safe too claim 5'10" then my senior high of high school and meeting people that are 5'10" I got really insecure and depressed because I was starting too see I was shorter then 5'10" and even shorter then 5'9 1/2. Though then I realized after doing morning and night measurements I found out that I was just about 5'10" when I first wake up and depending on the day on an normal day I'm just over 5'9 and on an work night I work nights including doing stuff during the day I'm like 5'8 7/8ths so I claim 5'9" or I ll just say I'm anywhere between 5'9 5'10 bc techinically I'm between those heights during the day.
Greg said on 6/Jun/16
@James C I know what you mean. See For the longest time ever I didn't even know my real height. I got measured at 5'9" my junior year of HS so at around 17. Then I just thought I was like 5'9.5 and would round off to 5'10". But for my drivers license they measured me in shoes, and I was 5'10", I knew this wasn't my real bare foot height or so I thought.. and sometimes I found just claim 5'11 because you know why not, my limbs where more or less the length of a 5'11 guys so I got away with it. But here's where things got a little bit funny and ironic. So I measured my height again and in the mornings I was just over 5'11" so I would only go down to about 5'10.5 towards the night time.So now I just claim 5'11 as I am over that im shoes prob closer to 6'0 with them on but yeah.
James C said on 4/Jun/16
5'11" is an go to height when 5'9" or even 5'8" guys don't know their height. Funny thing is 5'10" claimed guys that I know look comfortably taller then a lot 5'11" claimed guys and I mean claim. Like I work in customer service their was one guy who claimed 5'11" and when I go out to the lobby he seemed perfectly eye to eye with me though I wear boots sometimes so he could be an half inch taller then me. Then one day I felt short, an older gentlemen was like I'm 5'11" then he stood next to me and he was like your 6'0" and we looked in the mirrior my eyes where over his eyebrows. I have an friend who claims he is 6'0" funny thing is when we where 16 he claimed 5'11" then without getting measured he was like I grew now I think I'm 6'0" now. He is my height and is built like me were both 5'9" I don't think he knows his height. Though who knows at an urgent care center I've been measured at 5'10" 1/2 and I know that's not my height bc I ve been measured at 5'8" 1/2 at the military entrance processing and on an school day when I was younger where I didn't do much I get measured at the doctors at 5'9" 1/2 and on an day I do a lot I get measured at 5'9" when I was in the navy for only four weeks I have hypertension. I was on an airplane for seven hours, when we landed I did laid in an recliner for an few hours at an ymca place, I woke up and two hours later we sat criss cross apple sauce for an hour or more then we get on an bus that's like maybe 15 too 30 minutes then we walked for in awhile this is evening at 7 o clock I get clocked in at 5'9" they where like 69. And I check my height a lot and help from others I'm measured between 5'9" and 5'10" all the time the lowest being 5'8" 7/8ths and the highest being about 5'10" and I had an stadiometer like robs and I was measured either at 5'9 1/4 or just bout 5'9" depending on the day.

@175 cm, Ah ok! People should really not go by driver's licenses by the way. A cop once asked if I was 178-180cm (he was behind a desk but still) and I could've easily just gone with yes or similar to that and he'd fill that in. Pretty weird.

Especially considering I'm exactly 170cm. (Measured in 2010 in a job interview haha)

totally agree with truth

when a 5'9 guy lies he says '' I'm only 5'11'' (another recent example would be Wesley Snipes, exact same quote)
when a 5'10 guy lies he says ''I'm not short, I'm 5'11''
when a 5'11 guy lies he says ''I'm tall, I'm 6 feet''
truth said on 15/May/16
If a person says "only" and "5ft11" it is most likely that said person is embellishing their height by at least 2 inches.
John said on 5/May/16
Rob. I was measured with Seca Stadiometer and got 1cm taller than the wall measurement with aerosol can like you did. Which one is more precise?
Editor Rob: your wall/floor might be off by several mm if you got that much difference. If the place you put the stadiometer on looked flat and you faced it (so the rod didn't bend) then go with stadiometer (but take 1/8th inch off that).
James B said on 3/May/16
Rob Apparently depp has an estate near where I live. Rumour has it he went to my local towns carnival in disguise with a moustache LOL.
Editor Rob: to be fair, being a top a-lister brings a level of security and trickery that we don't need to bother with.

A guy like Cruise for instance on some sets would have 2 other you have these 3 cars come to set, then after shooting the 3 cars with cruise in one and 2 doubles in other going away. Crazy, but then, maybe for some they feel it necessary.

So Rob, I'm a little over 5' 9.25" out of bed in the morning, and usually hit 5'9" flat before bed at night, though I can often sink a little under the 5'9" mark if my back had a hard day. Would it be more honest to claim 5'9" flat or a weak 5'9"?
Editor Rob: these questions are best suited to the rob paul page ;)
I'd just go with 5ft 9 if you only drop a little under. If you dropped to 5ft 8.5 or 8.25 and claimed 5ft 9 then a proportion of people who were quite honest themselves might realise you weren't 5ft 9.

As for Depp, at times you could argue he fell into a weak or strong 5ft 9.
MaskDeMasque said on 3/Apr/16
I think he's in the 5'8.75-5'9 zone. He looks 5'9 range in most of his films.
JakesPlace97 said on 3/Apr/16
I think he is 5'8" because in the movie Don Juan, there is a scene where both him and Dona Julia (Talisa Soto) are standing next to each other and look the same height. Also I don't understand how Talisa Soto is said to be 5'10" on google, but is listed as 5'8" on IMDB. Either way they are the same height in that shot, but 5'10" I find hard to be real. This shot is taken directly along side them with no camera tricks and they both are wearing flat shoes.
What always confuses me is how supposedly Johnny Depp is the same height as Geraldine Pailhas, which is 5'10", and yet in the film Don Juan, Johnny looks a good couple of
inches taller than her in every shot.

if you google Johnny Depp and shame McGowan there are pictures of them together where I would say McGowan looks nearly a good inch taller, he is listed here at 5ft 9.5", of course you cant see the shoes all to well, have you seen the pics Rob and what difference would say there are between the two?
Patrick 5foot9 said on 14/Feb/16
Rob, are those photos like this one from "ara" important for you? Can you work with it? He looks like the same height as the wax figure of depp.
You think Depp was meassured for the wax figure?
Editor Rob: with Wax figures we need to be aware that sometimes an actor who appears and gets dimensions taken, might have a pose he stands in and that is the height of the figure. In some cases I would say the pose was less than a 'military tall' type pose. Depp at 174cm can be arguable at times, but he also can look 5ft 9 range a lot.
NBAer said on 14/Feb/16
Looks around 173 with 170 Tom Cruise(imo Cruize is max 171).He never looked close to 180 or 178 in any of the Pirates of the Caribbean films with normal cam angles,so 175 is really the max he could pass for...Nevertheless,a great actor and personality imo!!...

(note that I am a little closer to the camera, wearing sneakers with pretty thick soles; "Johnny" has standard cowboy boots and a very bad posture; still, I'd guess, with equal posture, shoes off, etc. we'd be pretty much the same height - considering Tussaud's measurements accurate; as far as I know, they were used for Orlando Bloom's estimate on this site, though?)

Do you guys realize how thick and chunky Johnny's shoes are in the second pic? That's about a 2 inch thickness right there. And even then, he's the same height as 5'7" Amber Heard who is wearing 3 inch heels. (Don't let the hat and the camera angle trick you.) So I would put him at 172-173cm.
John said on 29/Jan/16
Tom Cruise is wearing obvious elevator boots in the photo above. No boot can be that thick without a hidden lift or padding inside. Cruise looks 5'9" (same as Depp) with those boots, but only 5'7.5" without them.
James C. said on 29/Jan/16
Yeah he ain't 5'7 1/4 lol, with Benedict, that's basically me and my dad and grandpa who are both 5'11 1/2 and 6'0. If he was 5'7 1/4 then Benedict would be only 5'10, and he ain't 5'10 from what it seems lol.
meezemaker said on 28/Jan/16
I would say Depp is 5'8 or 174-173. But since he knows cruise gonna wear invisible lifts, they might look the same height than cruise on photograph shots. That 's why he is wearing his boots, to keep the gain on cruise;

One on half inches more for depp. if we guess cruise at 171, 174 for Deep seems fair.
Chris said on 25/Jan/16
My posts speak so much truth they keep getting deleted. Johnny is 171 cm barefoot and Amber Heard is 168 barefoot.

In this photo Johnny has 0.75 inch footwear and Amber has 2.5 inch footwear. In the photo Amber is at least 5 8.5 inches tall and Johnny is 5 7.75 - 5 8.

Editor Rob: there's quite a few photos of Johnny with Benedict. 171cm seems very hard to argue unless he was a lift wearer.
James C said on 15/Jan/16
Do you think tom hardy can edge Johnny depp out?
Miley T said on 13/Jan/16
5'9" looks about right
Looker said on 30/Dec/15
My friend met him and said he was a lot shorter than I am. I am a strong 5'9" at night. She said he was probably 5'7 tops.
176.2 said on 25/Dec/15
In shoes I trust his 5'11 claim. Barefoot 5'9.5? Possibly he has lost half of an inch due to age..
Maybe you're just bad in the estimate :)
Anthem said on 23/Dec/15
I had been to Madame Tussauds, and his wax figure looked around 5'6, though i didn't directly stand next to this one, it looked quite small.

And according to Madame Tussauds, they prepare meetings with celebrities and accurately measure them to make a realistic duplicate of the actual celebrity. I will give him the benefit of the doubt, since i haven't stood right close to the figure.
S.J.H said on 18/Dec/15
Dipping below 5'9 nowadays. Hover at 174.5cm
Dood said on 12/Dec/15
He's a solid 5'9. 5'9,5 out of bed
sebs said on 7/Dec/15
yah i can see that, depends on the heel, but he's not as short as people make him see. Could comfortably claim 5'10.

In normal dress shoes he would be right on 5'10" mark, not 5'10" 3/4 that's too much. And about 5'11" in cowboy boots.
Sebs said on 29/Nov/15
Barefoot 5'9 would mean that with typical dress shoe heels, he's pushing 5'10.5-3/4 which is a weak 5'11 and in sneakers he'd be close to 5'10

those 1in boots cruise has with 1in lifts that give a total of 1.6-7in very similar to the 1.5-1.7in type depp has makes cruise barely shorter like max 2-3cm
Ditya said on 27/Nov/15
Robb come on man.. Look at theese lifts!!!

Editor Rob: it's a cowboy heel.
amaterasu said on 26/Nov/15
I can believe he would measure as 175cm, but I can't believe that Bloom has 4cm on him. Because 4cm is almost 2 inches, and that difference can't be almost unnoticeable. With that being said, I think that there is only a slight difference between them, Bloom can be about 1 inch taller, but no more that that.
Ditya said on 25/Nov/15
5'7 !!!

@Mr Mike

There is no recent pic of Glen and Johnny Depp.
Cantchooseaname said on 15/Nov/15
I have a hard time believing this man's over 5ft 6,

Glenn had taken a photo with him and they looked the same height (and Glenn's a proven 5ft 6.5), BUT...Glenn had his head and neck way slumped over, while Depp stood up straight, plus Depp was closer to the camera. Unless Glenn was actually 5ft 9.5.....just look on Glenn's Instagram page and the latest Glenn/Depp photo shows this.

@Sam Well usually one's height with perfect posture should be assumed to be their 'official' height.
Dinger said on 18/Oct/15
In the 1st picture you can obviously see that they are all wearing big dark shoes which definitely look like lift's. I'd say 5'7" - 5' 8" tops!
Aaron said on 2/Oct/15
I put insoles (like Dr. Sholes, etc.) in my sneakers and then found that the simple combination of shoes plus insoles added 1.5 inches to my height. I bet it's easy to add even more without it being too noticeable.
Sam said on 29/Sep/15
Depp certainly falls within that stereotype that celebs add 2 inches to their height...IMO he can only hit the 5'9" mark with ramrod posture,
Felipe said on 26/Sep/15
Saw him yesterday at Rock in Riofestival playing with his band. Look him closely, he is about 1,73. I have 1,75 and he is shorter than me. That's a fact.
Sam said on 21/Sep/15
I think Tom Cruise might be sporting some small lifts in that top photo...more subtle than some of the beasts Robert Downey Jr. has been seen in.
[Editor Rob: when you think about it, there are many elevator shoe companies and hundreds of retailers selling shoe lifts. A certain percentage of the population, including actors, will be wearing them.

personally I've only really seen a few up close who I would say with certainty wore elevator shoes. Putting a half inch lift in a boot or shoe can be really impossible to notice for most people...]
Wipeout said on 18/Sep/15
Depp's peak height was 5'9.25 but at 52 is now closer to 5'8.75. Weight throughout most of the 90s (Eward Schissorhands, Benny & Joon, Donnie Brasco, etc) was in the 150 lbs zone and in the 2000s was typically still only 160 lbs (Pirates, Willy Wonka, Sweeney Todd, etc). He does looks heavy again lately but not quite what he was filming "The Tourist." He might weigh 180 or so. He knows how to lose weight quickly so I wouldn't worry. His cruising weight is around 160-165 lbs because he doesn't lift much weight so he can't afford to be much heavier than that or else he'll just gain fat pounds, which is not good. But ti would be great if Depp hit the gym and took it seriously. See if he can come close to Pitt in Troy.
the shredder said on 8/Sep/15
Rob , he really gained weight recently , what would you guess him 185 ?
[Editor Rob: not sure if he's quite that much, although I can see he looks a bit bulkier than normal, maybe 175-80 range.]

That's not right Danimal, see him with Charlize Theron in his socks in The Astronaut's Wife. Not under 5 ft 9.
Danimal said on 16/Jun/15
Got listed at 5'9" in the 1980's, but is probably closer to 5'8" and looks it next to 5'6 3/4" Tom Cruise.
Shawn said on 5/Jun/15
What's funny is when you look at Jerry Bruckheimer's shoes, both Cruise and Depp's footwear seem quite "bulked up" compared to Jerry's relatively modest footwear.
hijopotamus said on 5/Jun/15
@the shredder, not really. The thing is that Tom is a great elevators wearer, probably one of the top 3 ever and Depp is not great and looks weird and funny.
Key said on 5/Jun/15
In this picture with 5'7 (170cm) tall Tom Cruise. Depp looks 173cm.
the shredder said on 3/Jun/15
Depp has the bigger footwear than Cruise , both look over 5 '9 .
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jun/15
He actually looks near 5ft10 beside Cruise who as usual has a noticeable shoe advantage. Doesn't mean he is though
averageheight said on 26/May/15
Rob, could we have an entry for Richard Grieco? He cliams 5'11'' but I think he is same as Johnny Deep

[Editor Rob: did Grieco not edge Johnny out on 21 Jump Street, not seen an episode since back in the day though! 5ft 11 seems a stretch though, 5ft 9.5-10 might be ok.]
Silent_D said on 25/May/15
He might wear lifts but he is always taller than his wife amber heard who is at least 5 foot 6. I can't believe people think he is five foot 6 or 7. His posture is not that good but I think he is 5 foot 9. I think he was joking about 5 foot 11 claim. He was never 5 foot 11.
an anonymous peach said on 25/May/15
He only looks 2cm taller than Tom Cruise who could be a flat 5'7 for all we know. 174cm max for Johnny seems right imo
Key said on 18/May/15
Hmmm... I'm thinking 5'8 to 5'8.5
Ian C said on 16/May/15
Yet another shortish leading man who "candidly" admits that he is five foot eleven, just to show you what a modest, forthright guy he is. This is always suspicious, especially when the interviewer hasn't actually asked how tall the man is. It always seems like a nervous proactive dismissal of a painful subject, and is even more pathetic since it is so easy to see its falsity. The man is right there, after all.
M said on 8/May/15
He is the same height as Tom Cruise egzactelly 1.72m.

5' 9" for certain.
Simon said on 30/Apr/15
He doesn't look as tall as Simon Pegg next to Cruise.
Yugo said on 27/Apr/15
hey rob are the heights you put in celeb heights for celebrities their absolute low heights? like they can never be measured below that or are they mid day heights?
[Editor Rob: some might be put at the nearest full inch because generally they look near enough that...but of course if measured you'd probably find a proportion dipped under that.

Not everybody sits on even numbers at their low, for every guy at 5ft 11 you have another at 5ft 11 1/8th, 7/8ths, 5/8ths, 3/8ths etc.]
the shredder said on 24/Apr/15
5'7 is and 5'11 are crap , at 5'7 he would not have the same built and he would look odd wearing lifts to reach to 5'10 look he gives off , at 5'11 he would look 6 ft at times in his boots , he does not , 5'9 is about right , He has looked it barefoot in films before.
Charon540 said on 23/Apr/15
Even though 5'7" and 5'11" seems a bit exaggerated!!
5'9" seems about right for Johnny (maybe a weak 5'9") said on 31/Mar/15
why did the interviewer call him 5'7?
Heylo said on 27/Mar/15
Both in the movie Mortdecai and on premieres of the movie, Ewan McGregor (177cm) looks about an inch taller so he is probably not over 175. I would go for 174cm on Depp.
Shell said on 21/Mar/15
He's always slouching. He never looks above average, buf then his posture is so bad. He looks 5'9 and not 5'11, but then he doesnt seem like the vain type to play into Hollywood ideals. I think his "footwear" choices are more about his offbeat style. He likes boho looks (ie boots) or counter culture looks (ie creepers). I actually think many people dont know their true height, which is not static anyway, and so they just guesstimate. He is probably like 5'10 or so, just as a guess, since he slouches so badly.
CDS said on 2/Mar/15
The article I've mentioned in other threads from a magazine in the '90s, which compared actors' publicized heights with what they are speculated at had Depp's "official height" at 5'9", and a "best guess" at 5'8.5". Seeing that photo above with Tom Cruise (assuming both are doing some "heightening"-judging by the footwear), I'm going to say that 5'8.5" is right on the money. He can pull off 5'10" (in shoes) easily enough, but that 5'11" claim is ridiculous.
Heylo said on 26/Feb/15
@184.3cm, He looks unbelievably cool in that outfit he has. I really respect him for having integrity and character.

And just to be on topic.. I think he could be anywhere around 174-176 depending on sleep and posture. I think Rob's listing is pretty accurate.

Judd: visible shorter than Charlize Theron (5'9.75") in 1999, barefeet.

I'd say they looked pretty close. I'd give Johnny a solid 5'9"/5'9.5".

Yes, Depp wasn't much shorter at all, an inch max.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Feb/15
@Sam Watch The Astornaut's Wife. About 49 minutes through there's a scene with barefoot Charlize Theron and Depp in socks and he really looks 5'9 on the nose if she's 5'9.75.
184.3cm said on 19/Feb/15
And another with footwear although slouching from Depp.

Vanessa 5'6.5 to 5'7 in heels, absolute max he could be is 3 inches taller with better posture. So 5'10 in shoes so Rob has him good although i would argue maybe a shade smaller like 5'8.75. A full 5'9 is best case. Click Here
184.3cm said on 19/Feb/15
Seems to have had 4-4.5 inches on his former wife who Rob has listed 5'3.5. Some pics showed less than that even. Here his posture is good ofc footwear is not visible..Click Here

Yet to find a pic where he has 5 - 5.5 inches on her. Probably a lift wearer nowadays.
[Editor Rob: he has some scenes in Nightmare on Elm street with Heather Langenkamp and from meeting her and seeing Depp with her I do think he can pull off 5ft 9.]
meh said on 17/Feb/15
I seriously don't think he's 5'7". That would make him 4"taller than me. Not saying that it isn't possible. I look at the pictures of him and Amber from the premiere of 3 days to kill. Johnny is wearing about a 3" platform shoe. The hat also adds height. Plus even though Amber is in heels, in some of the pictures, you can tell that she is bending at the knees to look shorter than Johnny. (Bending at the knee with heels on, by personal experience.
