How tall is Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp's Height

5ft 9 (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."

In Ed Wood, I think I'm the ugliest woman alive...I seem to be an Amazon. I'm not the biggest guy in the world by any means - I'm only five-foot-eleven - but as a woman I'm absolutely monstrous.

Jakey, your comment is really confusing. It isn’t the 19th or 20th century and lemme tell you 5’9” is dead average and just isn’t tall...
Jakey said on 21/Feb/21
In the 19th to begging of 20th century the averege male height in the Europe and North America was 5.7 so nowadays 5.9 is considered tall!
MaskDeMasque said on 19/Feb/21
He generally looks 5'9 in films. 5'9 or 5'8.75 at the worst.

What? Even a "full 5'9" isn't tall.

@Rob: I think on 21 Jump Street, he looked anywhere in that range. I became convinced of the 174 cm after seeing my friend's picture. I noticed that in a picture of me standing side by side with this same friend a few years ago, Depp was definitely not taller than me. Prior to that and the Bruckheimer pics/videos, I did think Depp was a full 5'9". Likewise, I'm considering your picture with Langenkamp, but that depends on what you weigh more significantly.
Rising174cm said on 28/Dec/20
That 21 photo is one more reason I think he's 5'8.5" max. He did not look more than 5" taller than 5'3.5" Heather Langenkamp with both in sneakers back in Nightmare on Elm Street: Click Here Also looked more 5'8" than 5'9" (in boots) with Al Pacino, whom I doubt was a full 5'6": Click Here I became convinced after seeing Depp look 5'8" in a side by side pic with my friend in the 90s. He simply developed a fondness for boots, though Depp in cowboy boots is only about 2" taller than 5'7" Bruckheimer above.
Editor Rob
I did watch 21 Jump Street and overall still felt Depp was pretty near 5ft 9, I can see at times 174 argument though
Slim 6'1" said on 18/Dec/20
174.5 is likelier than this current listing
meezemaker said on 13/Dec/20
Watching on the 21 photo serie with Holly Robinson Peete (5'5), Deep looks with big veel 5'7....

Very weird.

Click Here

ROB? Can u explain that?
Editor Rob
Peete possibly could have been nearer 5ft 6, she used to have 5ft 5 on her resume but went as high as 5ft 7 for a claim...
meezemaker said on 13/Dec/20
Watching Donny brasc s scenes it iq hard to qee him over 5'8 movie
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Dec/20
Johnny looks gorgeous in 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape?' with his long, auburn hair, but he can withstand any hairstyle with his perfect face!

The talented actor is on again tonight, starring in 'The Ninth Gate', which is being shown on the Horror Channel at 9, just in case anyone is interested. It's directed by Roman Polanski and is well worth a watch, of that I promise you. Six years separate the two movies.

5ft9. 😄👌🎄🎅🎁

How tall do you think the girl next to johnny depp is and how tall are others in second photo (the one with johnny depp is the right one)
There shouldnt be footwear difference more than 1cm with her and johnny depp and I think there's not footwear difference between them because they wear same heels
Editor Rob
she could pass for 5ft 8 there
FrankR1 said on 9/Dec/20
Johnny Depp appears to be all of 5'10" in A Nightmare On Elm Street and 21 Jump Street. He was likely a solid 5'10" for all of the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.
Slim 6'1" said on 9/Dec/20
174 range, below average but not short
Patm said on 8/Dec/20
Barely 5ft9 guy who wears lifts in his boots to appear 5ft11, he's 5ft8.5
Genau said on 8/Dec/20
tom cruise is 5ft6 3/4 depp is 5ft8 1/2 maybe 5ft9 flat
Morgan Kaye said on 4/Dec/20
Tom is around 5'8, and Johnny only looks an inch taller than him in this photo. Johnny also has slightly more heel height than Tom, so I'm going with Johnny being around 3/4 of an inch taller than Tom, which is much closer to 5'9 than 5'8. I predict him to be 174.5cm or so.

I think he can legitimately call himself 5'9.
BenSolooo said on 30/Nov/20
Saw a picture of him next to Andrew Scott and they looked quite similar in height. I don’t think that Depp is taller than 175cm. I would go with 174cm or maybe 174 and 1/2 cm. Cause I believe Scott is 172-173cm.

Editor Rob
don't think depp has lost any big amount like half inch...from 80's to 2000's I think he held steady near 5ft 9.
Laura Azarowicz said on 23/Nov/20
Johnny Depp is 5’10’ not 5’7”, took a picture with him I am 5’6” and he was clearly much taller than me and he had low heels! FACT
David G said on 22/Nov/20
@Khaled @Canson
Even more, the 5'8.75" is not short for an US male. Personally I think a short man would be someone that is towered (a difference of more than 3 inches or 8 cm) by and average one. The US average is between 175-177 on the internet, so a short (in the US) would be 169 and below. Between 170-173 is medium short (or below the average) and 174-177 average.
khaled taban 5ft9 said on 17/Nov/20
@David G, Depp never was the full 5'9" , he was 5'8.75" at his peak and these days he is probably shorter.
Canson said on 5/Nov/20
@David G: I’d say an afternoon 5’9” is average height for a male here in the US
David G said on 4/Nov/20
@Willes190 5'9" is not short for a man, at least in North America, Latín America, Asia, Africa and part of Europe (that is the majority of world poulation). Maybe in a nordic country like Netherlands or Sweden 175-177 is like 2 or 3 inches below the average, but on a worldwide perpective the average heigh for a man is between 5'8"-5'10" (for he more accurate like 172-177 or Even less) so Mr. Depp is average.

Medium-short would be 5'6"-5'7" and short 5'5" and below.

You can see in China and India (the 30% of the world population) the average height is 171 and 165, so You cant Say 175 is short.
Slim 6'1" said on 2/Nov/20
174 not actually the full 5’9” time for a slight downgrade just a quarter inch
Murilo said on 1/Nov/20
@Willes190 dude, nobody cares about Sweden
Willes190 said on 20/Oct/20
@Cmillz: I would even say that 5ft9 (176cm) is short, given that the average for young males in my country (Sweden) is 5ft10.5-5ft11. There’s no point in trolling about something as trivial as 173cm being short. Ask any woman in my country and the vast majority of them will tell you that 5ft8 and 5ft9 is short. Most young women here won’t date any man under 178cm. On Swedish dating sites at least 60% of every woman has a 180cm requirement.

A man who’s only 173cm will look short proportionally. Just look at some celebrities like James Corden, Kevin James and Sean Penn.
cmillz said on 19/Oct/20
1 standard deviation from normal is where short starts, so 5’6.5” would be the start of short in the US, assuming 50th percentile is a solid 176cm.

Anyone saying 5’8 is short is trolling.

Tall Sam said on 18/Oct/20
I think 5'8" is low average height for a man in western countries, 5'9" and change being median height in the US still, 5"8" (Spain) up to 6'1" (Dinaric Alps) in Europe.

I wonder if Glenn wore lifts in that photo?
Editor Rob
Glenn never took off his socks when we met.

However, I doubt he really ever wore lifts, the odd big boot at times.

There is a second shot of Glenn with Depp but I would need to find it. I think it's like the one of Mel Gibson where he's bending head down losing height.
xdheight said on 5/Oct/20
In my opinion he is a 5'8.5 but sometimes looks like a 5'9 or 5'9.5

@ TheDon1528 - 5'8.5" is hardly tiny!

In the main picture both Tom and Johnny are wearing lifts. Look at the size of their footwear.

Definitely 5'10, don't really see how he is below that height. In movies he always appears to be 5'10. He doesn't really appear smaller than that
cmillz said on 20/Sep/20
5’8.5, similar to Hardy.
TheBat said on 18/Sep/20
Depp’s definitely 5’9“. Though I can understand why people think he’s a bit shorter than that. His 5’11” claim though is absolutely ridiculous.
JCBS said on 15/Sep/20
I think with his slim frame his 5'9" stature looks a little taller. He could round off to 5'10 easy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/20
Strong 5ft9 I wouldn’t dispute
Editor Rob
in his 20's, at times when he stood well, never seemed to look less than 5ft 9.
Neo said on 2/Sep/20
Rob, what do you think his peak height was? Is 5.10 possible?
Editor Rob
If you go back to 21 Jump Street, 5ft 9-9.5 I think is possible in that era.
Slim 6'1" said on 9/Aug/20
actually of average height unlike tom cruise who is kinda short
Slim 6'1" said on 8/Aug/20
173-173.5 is underselling him but 174-174.5 is perfect.

strong 5'8 but closer to 5'9 than 5'8
Slim 6'1" said on 2/Aug/20
Will despite being below average height he can look a solid to strong average
Willes190 said on 26/Jul/20
I’ve always felt that Depp easily can pass for 5ft9.5-5ft10.5 in his movies; e.g. Pirates off the Caribbean, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Lone Ranger and Donnie Branco just to name a few. I’d be genuinely surprised if he only measure 5ft9 (175.3) under a stadiometer.

@James roy

What does your dream have to do with Johnny Depp's real height?
Kebapsever said on 17/Jul/20
Peak 5’10 now 5’9.
James roy said on 17/Jul/20
I remember I had a dream about Johnny Depp in his Captain Jack Sparrow suit and he looked 5'6" in my dream.
James roy said on 16/Jul/20
I think Johnny Depp is a celebrity that is shorter than you realize, I think that he can give an allusion to look taller and also wears lifts I think he's more like 5'7", he has a small frame.
OriginalAnon said on 8/Jul/20
No way 5'7''. He could be anywhere between 5'8.5" to 5'9.25" I think. I think 5'9'' is about right. His 5'11'' claim is laughable. I didn't have him down as someone who would exaggerate their height as much as that.
Sean95 said on 7/Jul/20
People sometimes underestimate someone's height either intentionally or just judging by a quick glance. For example a mystery shopper guessed a colleagues height 'around 5'9"' when he was actually 5'10.5-5'11 (he claimed 6'). Solid 5'9 for Depp
James roy said on 15/Jun/20

Would you believe it? Johnny is 57 today! He could have fooled me!

I have so many favourite movies of his, including 'Donnie Brasco' and 'Secret Window" plus many more. I love this guy and wish him a very happy birthday! XXX

How about his appearance in 'The Fast Show'? Suit you Sir! And Paul Whitehouse said Johnny "ARSED!" at him! Ha ha ha! I wish I'd been there! ARSE!

Have a very jolly day, Johnny! Love ya!

Hello Rob

Do you think 173cm is possible for Johnny? If you take a look at this pic (link below) you can see that he is just a tiny bit taller than Keira Knightley who is listed here as 168.5-169cm... I wonder what you think about his 180cm claim

Cheers mate

Editor Rob
The link didn't seem to go anywhere, but There's a few photos in which he can seem barely taller, albeit she is in heels. I still go with near 5ft 9 for Depp, sometimes he's looked a bit shorter or taller through his career.
Angus said on 23/May/20
why does he look just about 10-12 cm than armie hammer
Alice Bennett said on 17/May/20
Rob is it true that the measuring machine at the doctors are usually not accurate by 1-2 cm? Is it possible to get more accurate results with a measuring tape at home?
Editor Rob
It can depend on whether it's attached to the wall or if it's been used and abused.

Also you are relying on the person taking the measurement to do it right. I've witnessed a nurse take a reading of somebody before they stood tall, and it was almost 3/4 inch less than what i measured them...
JohnMoore-162cm said on 11/May/20
@Jkiller- Agreed
Jkiller said on 7/May/20
5'8.75 max, but I'd say 5'8.5 (174cm) is more accurate
Fezz123 said on 6/May/20
Has never looked over 5’8”.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/May/20
This quote is indeed trolling or could have say is strange:
"Its strange because although Johnny Depp is actually only 5' 7", he gives the illusion of being really tall."

I have never doubt he is below 5'8, usually see him as legit 174cm.
Beau Dare said on 1/May/20
I once worked with Johnny Depp on a film in Hollywood, as an actor, on a film called "Private Resort". Depp was a very casual, modest guy who stood a shade under 5'9", with a great sense of humour about himself. A real gentleman.

Hi Rob,

Can you explain why Depp looks way taller than most of the cast in Fantastic Beasts and The Crimes of Grindelwald. Do you think it’s possible that he has lifts inside his boots or is it like some sort of camera magic?

Editor Rob
I can't remember thinking he seemed much taller than he normally does, but then maybe I was paying more attention to the film than height 😲 There were a couple of shorter than 5ft 7 male cast members I remember though!

5’11 claim is ridiculous. Amazing actor and a cool guy, but he is really, really short. Maybe 5’8.
Xoxo56 said on 21/Apr/20
wouldn’t be shocked if he’s like 5’8. I really don’t trust his footwear in a lot of pictures. I think he is a REALLY small guy. Camera angels and footwear can make you look 2-3 inches taller. He is using elevators and has got a frame which makes him look taller than he is, because he is a small guy in terms of build. I wouldn’t be surprised if he struggles for 5’8 on a stadiometer in the middle of the day, for instance 2pm. Would guess him at

top morning height: 173,9 cm

after 2 hours: 172,6 cm

Absolute low height: 170,8 cm / a bit over 5’7
Nik said on 20/Apr/20

Why is it all written he's 178 cm tall?
Is his maximum height always 175.3 cm?
Editor Rob
I don't think he ever looked as tall as his 5ft 11 claim, but 5ft 10? On the odd occasion he might have looked it, but I'd still go with him typically looking nearer 5ft 9 than 10 through his career.
6james94 said on 8/Feb/20
Random question what kind of footwear did he wear in secret window?

I don't know about indoors, but at one point outdoors he had Adidas sneakers which aren't huge or anything. He held up well with Timothy Hutton.

Hello @Rob, i think he is a little bit shorter than 5 ft 9. If you compare him to Cillian Murphy in the movie Transcendence they are almost the same height. Cillian is listed here as 5 ft 8 so i guess Depp is like 5 ft 8 1/4. What do you think?

5'9"flat is perfect for Johnny.

Hi @Rob, there's a recent picture on Joe Mangiello's instagram with Johnny and Morgan Freeman. I'd say he's struggling to look above 5ft8 there. What do you think?
Editor Rob
Click Here - he could be 5ft 8-9 range there, no more, although I can't make out what size of heel Joe has, but I doubt it's much more than depp's which are decent boots.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Nov/19
I still can't absorb the "only 5'7" Depp by the quote from random interviewer mention. That would leave Tom Cruise down to 5'5 and 3/4 base on Rob listing. The worst low i wouldn't think of under 5'8 for Depp and not below 5'6 3/4 for Tom.

He isn't any less than 5'8.5" and 5'9" is a good shout. Just annoys me when people say " I am just xxx" and its complete and utter nonsense. A true 5'11" barefoot can look pretty tall at times and especially in a country with a 5'9.5" average like the USA.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Aug/19
@ luke archer - I can't see Johnny Depp having it necessary to wear height- enhancing footwear other than to make a fashion statement. He wore cowboy boots and a cowboy hat when he appeared in a sketch in the 90s comedy hit series 'The Fast Show', and he looked damn great!

I just watched the end of 'The Ninth Gate', and JD wore ordinary shoes. That film contains the scariest seduction scene since the one from Stephen King's 'The Stand', but that Stephen King horror scene sent the character insane and turned her hair white! 😲

Johnny is the sort of guy who could be attractive at any height, be it 5ft7, 9, 11 or 6ft4. He gives each film his all and, though there are an abundance of movies to choose from, I think my favourite has to be 'Donnie Brasco'. Based on a true story, it details the solidarity that 'real deal' gangsters have for each other, so much so that Johnny's undercover detective actually develops feelings of fraternity towards his fellow gangsters and one in particular, played by Al Pacino. The film stars actors ranging from Al's 5ft5ish to Michael Madsen's 6ft2 or so. The heights of these guys bear no effect on their success within the group of gangsters, which is exactly how things should be in real life. What counts is their loyalty, dedication and bravery. I emerged from the watching of this film with an amazing amount of respect for how principled these people actually are!

Tonight I have decided to stick with Rob's 5ft9. Before I visited this website, I did think Johnny was nearer, I'd say, to the 5ft10 mark, but his lean build is such that he could be taken for taller anyway.

I saw his first ever film, 'A Nightmare On Elm Street', at the cinema. Never did I expect that a young boy victim of Freddie Krueger would be such a success; in fact, it was years before I even realized that the youngster was Johnny Depp in the first place!

Cheers Luke! 😁👍
luke archer said on 6/Aug/19
he is 5'7. I shave seen him several times and he wears very suspect footwear. once he was wearing cowboy hoots with 2+ inch heals on them and my gf at the time who is 5'9 was wearing sandals and they were the same height only his wild blow combed hair was a few inches over her head. this wa sin Hollywood..later I was a t a table next too thin in New York and he was wearing a suit with clunky shoes and was at best 5'8.5 minus the 1.5 inch heels
Ian C. said on 1/Aug/19
Well, LupeLuna, I care how tall or short people are, which is why I come to this site. In fact I tend to think it slightly immoral when a man lies about his height, especially since the lie is so easily exposed.

Anyway, name a movie where Depp played a character who should have been tall. I can't think of any myself (unless John Dillinger was tall), so it's not as if he's trying to put one over on his fans. And, if you want to tell people that you're big, don't call yourself "Johnny." That wouldn't have worked for Johnny Wayne.

It’s amazing to me how many people are concerned with a man’s height? Who cares how tall or short you are? I seen Johnny Depp in person a few years ago, I was face to face with him I’m 5’6 I had on flat sandals and he was wearing those ugly worn out boots so he is 5’5. Although he is a shorty he still has a giant presence! Women wear heels 👠 all the time. Get over it! So what if he’s 5’5 or 5’10 we’re not paying his bills!

🎁🎂🎈 Happy Birthday Johnny!🎈🎂🎁

Wishing one of the best and most adaptable actors of today a truly fantastic 56th Birthday. He SO doesn't look his age! This guy, with a sense of humour which shows through in a great many of his roles, (when necessary), is the star of many of my all time firm favourite films, including 'Donnie Brasco', in which he stars with Al Pacino.

Johnny gets a Birthday guess of 5ft9.25.

@tree: I've seen some memorable battle of the lifts/big heels before. Often times Robert Downey Jr. is involved one way or the other. Cruise always wears lifts these days, but I think Depp is a bit more of a thick shoe/boot guy rather than internal lifts. He's probably worn them for some film roles, though.

He does have about 2 cm or an inch on Cruise in the photo above, but cowboy boots do not add 3". A typical cowboy heel would be about 1.75". Tom's elevator boots probably add a little over 2" there.

Funny comment i mean we compare how much height there in lifts,big boots,incorprated fake heels etc give lol

It could be a game show there shoes have hiden heels,or lifts,gues swho has more 'stacked' footwear xddd

Imamsocoollikereallycoool said on 7/Dec/18
Did this guy really claim as high as 5’11????? Damn. I think he could be around that 5-8 or 5-9 range. He looks same as Tom cruise, possibly around an inch taller. There both wearing some kind of lift but I definitely think the cowboy boot gives Johnny lots of height. Possibly 3 inches. Tom cruise probably like 2 maybe. So I definelyu think he’s around 5-8 probably. Maybe 5-9 tho

Johny dep always wearing clown shoes but still same height as tom cruise

To be honest he's 170cm morning and that's generous.
Rising - 174 cm said on 19/Nov/18
@Peter: Tom has elevator boots there so I'm fairly certain they add more than Johnny's cowboy boots. For one, Tom's knees are higher. Also, you can see the angle from the side and they appear to have that bulge around the laces: Click Here and notice the illusion he's tip-toeing in some shots when he's really not: Click Here That design is pretty typical for a moderate elevator boot. I'd guess he gets somewhere around 5.5 to 6 cm actual height. With that said, I tend to agree Johnny is probably a bit shy of 5'9" and we can compare to Jerry Bruckheimer who is a solid 5'7" and wearing normal shoes. Or, look at Johnny with 5'3.5" Heather Langenkamp: Click Here Click Here Both wore sneakers in the film and was Johnny any more than 5" taller? Also, it would be useful to know Jsu Garcia's height. He seemed quite a bit bigger than Johnny, but I think he's above average height.

@oliviadare: I believe your sighting, but if this is the London premiere you attended then Johnny was actually wearing boots: Click Here Those look to add at least 3 cm range to me or 1.2"-1.4" so probably more 5'8.75" barefoot. I have heard he's a nice guy in person and I'm sure he'd measure over 5'9" earlier in the day.
QM6'1QM said on 28/Jun/18
Oh, 5'11 is too tall for him. I think even the ardent fans understand this. No doubt, he is not more than 175 cm.
oliviadare said on 23/Jun/18
I think this listing is pretty spot on. I’d guess he’s in the 5’8.75”-5’9.25” range. I met him back in 2011 at the Rum Diary premiere in London. He’s such a nice guy, he talked to each fan for at least a few minutes. When he was talking to me, I noticed we were almost the exact same height. I consider myself usually 5’9” on the dot, but have measured 5’9.25” in the morning and 5’8.75” at night before. He was maybe half an inch to an inch taller than me tops. He was in dress shoes with an estimated 1 inch heel and I was in flat boots with a half an inch heel. The premiere was in the evening. I’d say he’s also 5’9” on the dot but could measure over or under depending on the time of day.
Canson said on 9/Jun/18
Agreed Rising. Strong 5’8 probably
Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Jun/18
He does look anywhere from 5'9"-5'9.5" in those 2 photos if Benedict is 5'11.5", but he definitely looks to have thicker shoes as they appear to have a platform like the shoes he's wearing in the photo to the right at the top of the page. But 181 cm does sound possible for Benedict as well since Rob has seen him looking around 5'11" so that would make Depp 176 cm max even with the footwear advantage. I doubt Depp has lost height too. He could look 5'8" range with Pacino in the 90's and he looked 5-8ish with my friend in the 90's. I'd expect him to be more of a 5'8.75", maybe 5'8.5" guy without the thicker footwear.
Tunman said on 4/Jun/18
If anything he looks 176 with Benedict but his shoes are like a solid 1cm thicker so about 175,perhaps 174-5at worst if Benedict is more 181
Actually he always looked around 175 although there are many instances where he was pushing over 5'9 especially in Pirates of the Caribbean.I think he's the kind of actor who likes to wear thicker shoes.Obviously his 5'11 claim is unrealistic.

In the first Pirates of the Caribbean, he's as tall as Orlando Bloom, but he was probably wearing big boots to appear that tall. From his proportions though, he didn't strike me as being particularly tall. I thought perhaps he'd be 5'8-5'9 in stature.

Nino: Cruise should get about 2.3" out of those boots with the lift inside and he looks like a roughly 5'8.5" man in them compared to 171 cm Jerry Bruckheimer who has typical 1" type shoes as Cruise is 1"-1.5" taller than Bruckheimer at most. So at most Cruise would measure 177 cm in them and that may be generous, especially since he's likely standing better than Bruckheimer. As for Depp, if he were 5'9.5" then with cowboy boots like that which add 1.6" then he'd be over 5'11" and that's clearly not the case as it'd make him 3" taller than Bruckheimer. In reality, Depp only looks about 2" taller than Bruckheimer at best meaning Depp would probably measure around 5'10" IN cowboy boots. Definitely not barefoot. Johnny is closer to 5'8.5" barefoot, imo. Maybe just under 5'9".
Nino said on 14/Nov/17
BTW cruise lifts up to 174 maybe 175 even176 is possible Jonny should be 5.11 with those boots. I'd go with 5.10 barefoot or at least 5.9.5

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

In the top left photo, his lifts were so massive, his feet fell out of the shoe.

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.

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.

@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.

@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.
Lanaka said on 7/Jul/17
Johnny really does look to be 5'9 range! At least to me!
Slim 182 cm said on 6/Jul/17
Did I forgot to mention Depp claimed 5"11? Lol 😂🤣
Still believe he falls inbetween 5"8 to 5"8.75
Slim 181.5 cm said on 6/Jul/17
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"!! 😂😂😂
