He looks similar in height to Kaley Cuoco to me. Sometimes one looks a little taller then the other but to me having watched tons of BBT they are basically the same height. I would be surprised at .75 inch difference. There are also many many off screen photos of the 2 together standing right next to each other. The 5.5 is right for Johnny its Kaley that needs a little downgrade.

I met this guy a couple of years ago. After talking a bit he asked me for my height and I answered with 6ft 3. He just said ´Why can´t I be taller than 5ft4.5 ?

I don't believe for a second that conversation ever happened!

True fans can now hang out with the characters from The Big Bang Theory whenever they want to. Well, sort of… These new Big Bang Theory Cardboard Cutout Standees allow you to put life sized cardboard versions of your favorite characters from the hit TV series in your home. Imagine having a Sheldon standee to protect your spot on the couch when you’re not around. Just don’t do anything creepy with your Penny standee; I’m warning you!

These cardboard cutouts are life size. Sheldon Cooper stands 6′ 2″, Penny is 5′ 7½”, and Leonard is 5′ 7″ tall. Raj is is 5′ 8½”, while Howard is just 5′ 6½” tall.

Penny makes fun of Leonard in an episode when he claims 5'6.
IceK said on 14/Jan/15
There is no way he is 5'5, he is 5'6 the same height as Kaley Cucko, he is short but not that short. Ive seen episodes where both of them are barefoot and they are the same height. Rob, he is not 5'5. Leonard 5'6 Howard 5'4.5, Raj 5'7.5 maybe a weak 5'8 Jim Parsons 6'1.5 Kalley Cucko 5'6
yup. said on 10/Jan/15
solid 5'5, no more, no less. although he can look 5'6 sometimes.
jared said on 2/Jan/15
I think he is a 5'4" or a bit more but he is more than a full head shorter than Jim Parsons so that 10 inches less than Jim who is 6'1 1/2. So that's around 23 cm less than 186cm Jim making Johnny no more than 163cm
Danimal said on 12/Nov/14
Okay, Roseanne was 5'4" 20 + years ago and I think he edged her out on the show, so 5'5" is about right.

I doesn't know if he never claimed his height of 5'5",did it?If he didn't it,second me, he could be tall 5'6", in TBBT he looks as tall(or almost) as Kaley Cuoco and in some episode he looks taller than kaley cuoco,maybe angle of the camera, prospective etc., maybe shoes(also whether Converse all stars believe that lift only 0.6 inch ).

What? haha

Me and Johnny are the same height! we're both 5"4
Aman said on 9/Oct/14
I think you need to upgrade this, he looks more like he is 5'6, I would be surprised if he was shorter than 5'5.5. No way he is 5'5 or under, he is the same height as 5'6 Kelly Cuco
TBBT said on 15/Apr/14
5'5 looks legitimate.. Boy, The Big Bang Theory may be the show that has the main cast with the shortest average height.. ever.
SaveUsY2J said on 6/Apr/14
Rhonda, they're standing on an upward sloping beach. She's got the terrain advantage over him.
yeye said on 17/Oct/13
This picture is poor for comparisons because of the angle. I'm 5'5 at night with excellent posture. And I do look around Galeckis height. He's short, but not weirdly so. He also occasionally wears lifts. Simon Helberg wears lifts in practically any shot i can find of him, that is - if robs 5'4 listing is correct. He always stands completely straight as well.
yeye said on 12/Oct/13
5'5. But good looking, and his girlfriends have all been stunners. He is solidly built though, looks like those italian genes shine through.
Balrog said on 17/Aug/13
Rob I think this guy is 5'4" range. Steve Yeun was in a episode of TBBT and looked much taller than him.

Johnny Galecki is a strong 5'5", and he was even bending down and still looks well taller than 5'0" Melissa Rauch.
Balrog said on 24/May/13
5'4.5'' Helberg is 5'4'' flat Nayyar 5'7'' Parsons 6'1'' Kuoco 5'6'' Malik 5'3'' and Rauch 4'11''

@the shredder...

So someone an inch taller than someone else, looked an inch taller than them?.
Chaz said on 7/Jan/13
That's funny, I always thought he was actually shorter than that. I figured maybe around 5'3". Always hard to tell on TV though.
balrog said on 6/Dec/12
He's barely taller than Helberg. 5'4.5''. Nayyar is in the 5'7'' range.

Carly said on 6/Aug/12
Johnny galecky is 5'5 . Kailey is at least an inch taller. Mens shoes tend to have a taller heel than womens flats and she is almost always barefoot in scenes with him on the show and he is most often wearing shoes
the shredder said on 30/Jul/12
He is about 1.5 shorter then Kris Allen .

Kaley Cuoco is at most 5'6". And Kunal Nayyar is barely 5'7".
