There's about an inch difference between him and 5'9 Charlie Sheen. Though I believe Sheen is a touch over 5'9 and Cryer is a biggish 5'8. 174cm would be my guesstimate
Dante Anthony Ferraro said on 21/Nov/22
In my opinion he looks more 5’9

He slouches often which can make him look more like a flat 5'8, but he's definitely 5'8½ standing up straight. It's only really a slight slouch. He's a smidge shorter than Charlie Sheen(who also doesn't stand too straight).

Average good looking 5'9 american guy. Guys between 5'8 to 6'2 look the best.


in what way ?
Jammes said on 22/May/19
Gene Hackman is the only Lex Luthor thats accurate in height at 6'2? Rosenbaum is almost 6'0.
Spacey is in the 5'9 range and Cryer is 5'8 range. Eisenberg is the shortest.
Rosenbaum is my favorite but dang,wish we could get a tall intimidating Lex like Billy Zane or Mark Strong. SMH Hollywood you never fail to amaze me

Yeah in the show he looked like he would be 5'7-5'8 next to sheen but in photos at I guess the oscars or formal occasions outside the show he actually looked the same height pretty much and sometimes taller then sheen in some of them or the same height. I watched two and a half men I thought he was like 5'7 or 5'8. though coming to thinking about they did seem equal sometimes. In the photo above he definitely looks like 5'8.5-5'9 guy,
eltic said on 29/Mar/19
seems too much for him.and if he really is then charlie must have been near the 5"10 mark on two and a half men.

there are some episodes where charlie has an inch on him easily. at least 2cm id believe 3cm

i believe he is 173 and charlie 176 today.

Molly Ringwald said he was 5'6.5 on Drop the mic something to think about
Lynx said on 21/Dec/17
Are you people really arguing about 1cm? Hair and shoes can give you easy 6-7cm, its almost imposible to argue about 1cm by a picture.
Also, Jon looked clearly taller than Douglas con that pic, just look at their eye-level or shoulders. He looks more average than shortish.
KH said on 9/Nov/17
The slouch is part affectation he almost always plays a schlubby character trust in his roles trust me it becomes ingrained in you eventually. When he stands tall this is about right. He doesn't look out of place at all with average height guys.
Jjjj said on 12/Jun/17
If he is 174 rob you need to put sheen at least at 176
RisingForce said on 28/May/17
Maybe 5'8.25" for Cryer? But Douglas is clearly shorter than Cryer now, even with hair advantage. I'd give Douglas about 5'7.5" these days.
Realist said on 26/May/17
Lol at the gym they tried to say I was like 174 but they took off like a inch for my hair. I am black and my hair can't give me that much I have no box haircut lol. I am growing though maybe 178 if I try.
Anthony said on 2/May/17
No way hes only 1 inch shorter than sheen
whoever it is said on 15/Mar/17
kek he looks 5'7.25
172.4cm guy said on 30/Jan/17
I don't think John Cryer is 174cm. I was watching a video of John Cryer and Michael Douglas on Jimmy Fallon playing charades, and I was able to pull a picture of the three of them, plus Kat Dennings in heels. I noted how similar Cryer and Douglas were in height to one another. Douglas is currently 172-173cm, and Cryer looks right in line with Douglas. I think Cryer is at most 173cm rather than 174cm.

Could look nearer a flat 5'8 on Two and a half men, sheen was at least an Inch taller than him, tho Cryer does tend to slouch a bit but still Sheen was always noticeably taller, no way was he only a 1/2 Inch taller, if anything sheen is underlisted on here, He is more than 1cm taller than cryer in my opinion watching two and a half men

173-174 for him
176.2 said on 20/Jan/16
Due to Cryers bad posture it appears more than it is.
pablo77bar(184cm) said on 17/Jan/16
Charlie Sheen is more than just 1 cm taller
ray said on 13/Mar/15
Anybody know how tall Marin Hinkle is, maybe 5ft5?
Amaze said on 13/Aug/14
He looks pretty small on 2 and a half men. Everyone dwarfs him. He loooked so tiny next to ashton. Maybe hes 174, i doubt 175 though. 6 is kinda pushing it lol
Mastro said on 8/Aug/14
I think he slouches with Sheen to look submissive- otherwise Sheen would be 5'10 or so.
kevin said on 2/Aug/14
He can look like a 5'8 guy with his poor posture, I think he could measure 5'8.25- 5'8.5 at his low at a guess He was a bit shorter than Charlie Sheen who I do think is a legit 5'9 and a possible 176cm.

174cm is fair for Cryer, I think he can look shorter than what he might measure
Realist said on 27/Mar/14
Peak must have been same as Sheen, they are similar in Hot Shots. Cryer is now about 172 and Sheen about 174-175 (peak 176).
Realist said on 6/Dec/13
Average good looking 5'9 american guy. Guys between 5'8 to 6'2 look the best.
Gheist said on 9/Nov/13
Anywhere between 173 and 175 is plausible, he could be 175 at morning and go down to 173,5-174 at evening, he has very bad posture.
Ryan said on 5/Oct/13
Charlie: bit over 5'9
Alan: about 5'8.5

Charlie looks solid 2cm taller Charlie might be 176cm
Silent d said on 18/Jan/13
Didn't he say he was 5 foot 9 and charlie claimed 5 foot 10. Charlie was always taller than him. 5 foot 8.
Josh said on 9/Jan/13
@ Derek Ashton is not that tall he is 6'1.5 187cm the most and again 5'8 for cryer
Joey said on 19/Dec/12
5'8..and ashton is 187cm
Steve said on 10/Dec/12
Ashton Kutcher: solid 6'2"
Charlie Sheen: 5'8.5"
Jon Cryer: 5'8"
Derek said on 15/Nov/12
@Josh Ashton Kutcher is 6'3". 5'8.75" for Cryer seems fair.
Matt said on 13/Nov/12
Has a slight resemblance of Don Knotts. The poor posture too! Coincidence?
Josh said on 11/Nov/12
5'7.5 5'8 the most he´s way shorter than 6'1 ashton kutcher
Kartal said on 10/Nov/12
This cant be right, Charlie Sheen is a solid 5'9 and he was noticably taller than Jon.
Silent d said on 29/Oct/12
5 foot 8 but bad posture for a chiropractor.
Derek said on 17/Oct/12
Does look close to 5'9", but then again, 5'9" Charlie Sheen looked at least an inch taller than him on Two and a Half. I think Charlie Sheen is a true 5'9" when I see him next to others you have also met(5'10" Mike Tyson had an inch on him on the roast. And Tyson is a true 5'10" because he measured and said so himself and you even saw for yourself when you met him). Again, do you think it could be Cryer's poor posture or different footwear and camera angles at times, or do you think 5'8"-5'8.5" would be closer for Jon.
Hullywood said on 18/Aug/12
Cryer = 1.73.75m
Sheen = 1.75.85m

Difference = 2.10 cm
mcfan said on 12/Aug/12
Jon Cryer in the earlier episodes only looks a smidgen under Charlie Sheen. In the later episodes he looks 1/2 - 3/4 shorter.
diego said on 29/Jan/12
cryer cant be that tall he is maybe 173-74, charlie sheen is taller, everyone can notice than when they are without shoes on two and a half men
Ryan said on 27/Jan/12
Hey, Rob. isn't it about time you place a height listing for angus t jones. Im sure he stopped growing.
Will said on 13/Dec/11
Jon Cryer is around 5'7"-5'8". Trust me he is shorter than 5'9" Charlie Sheen.
Brandon said on 2/Dec/11
I'd say about 5'7"
Silent d said on 28/Oct/11
Alan is taller than jake by an inch or two. He's still growing. Some people say alan and charlie are the same height but they are clearly not. I always thought cryer was 5 foot 7 but i can live with 5 foot 8.
Martin said on 8/Oct/11
Ashton Kutcher - 185 cm
Angus T. Jones - 174 cm
Jon Cryer - 173 cm
Mr. R said on 16/Sep/11
I met Jon maybe 10 years ago at a dinner. He is closer to 5-8.
saigonjohn said on 15/Sep/11
Don't care that much about his height. The guy is a good actor. He's the new Jack Lemmon. Would love to see him and Sheen do a remake of the Odd Couple.
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 8/Sep/11
Rob he needs a downgrade. He is clearly shorter than Charlie Sheen(who uve got as 5'9 as well).
Im 175.5cm my cousin is 177.5cm and there is slightly less difference between us 2 then cryer and sheen. Sheen is 2-3cm taller than Cryer.
Cryers anywhere between 172-174
Daphne said on 25/Aug/11
Guys. Here is a photo with April Bowlby and Jon. Click Here . Let's say April is 5'5 or 5'6. Jon seem 5'7. Short guy. :/
MassiveExplosion said on 30/Jul/11
same height difference from Alan and Charlie on 2 1/2 men, half an inch, as it is with Joey and Jesse on Full House.
Derek said on 24/May/11
He's more 5'8". He's a good inch shorter than Charlie Sheen.
Babalou said on 11/Apr/11
No way he is above 5'8 flat, maybe 5'8.75 in some dress shoes.
hakunamatata said on 6/Apr/11
@Jamie T

JamieT said on 28/Mar/11
Cryer - 174, Sheen - 176, Jones - 177
Adamz said on 26/Feb/11
I do not think he is 175cm. He is Shorter.
Will said on 8/Feb/11
Cryer is more like 5'7"-5'8".
John Lee, Sr. said on 27/Jan/11
You know Will, Jon Cryer is not 5'8 1/2". He is 5'8" max.
Will said on 31/Dec/10
Jon Cryer is 5'8 1/2". He was slightly shorter than 5'9" Charlie Sheen in Two and a Half Men. I doubt that Cryer wears any shoe lifts in his shoes.
PapaBear said on 5/Dec/10
Angus T. Jones and Jon Cryer has bad postures, sheen has a really good posture. I think Sheen is about 176cm tall, Cryer about 174-175cm, Angus T. Jones looks taller in season 8, and i think he has outgrewn both sheen and cryer. (176-178cm for AT.Jones)
Jimmy said on 16/Nov/10
I have never seen a picture of Angus Jones taller than 5'5.
Josh said on 10/Nov/10
hes 5'8, 6'0 David Duchovny has 4 inches on him
Kathy said on 12/May/09
I think that Jon Cryer is the perfect height and I have been a fan of his since 1988. May I meet him? Thank you Kathy
OcusPocus said on 13/Apr/09
Rob do you think Cryer might be 5'8.5? He doesn't look 2 inches taller than 5'7 Marin Hinkle. And is clearly at least 0.5-0.75 inch shorter than supposedly 5'9 Charlie Sheen.
UpTheChels said on 9/Mar/09
Jon Cryer is clearly a solid 5'8.5 in. This needs an update, I heard in other places that this was his height.
Scata18 said on 16/Jan/09
I'm 5'11.75 in the morning and 5'11.25 at night barefoot and 5'11 isn't a bad height, especially if you have the right shoes that can easily boost you over 6'0. I wish I was a bit taller though, my ideal height would be exactly one inch taller, 6'0.75 in the morning and 6'0.25 at night. To be honest I wouldn't want to be anything 6'2 or taller..
glenn said on 28/Dec/08
thanks point guard.
Point Guard said on 27/Dec/08

Victorian said on 16/Dec/08
Always looked 5ft8 to me on Two and a half Men.
anonymous said on 22/Oct/08
He's 5 foot 8. He's short.Charlie's 5 foot 9.
Anonymous -15 said on 22/Sep/08
Looks just under 5'9" in Two and a half Men , so 5'8.75 is spot on in my opinion. Great show by the way.
moondog said on 27/Aug/08
I am 5'11". I stood next to Jon in a Starbucks and I towered over him. He is 5'8" max.
wtf? said on 4/Jul/08
when i see two and a half men it seems to me that charlie when not wearing shoes looks more than 1 cm taller than jon cryer more like between a full inch and two if not more
mark said on 27/May/08
charlie is supposed 5'10 and cryer 5'9, jon cryer is better than sheen on the show dont care for charlie but jon cryer is hilarious, i think he awesome just like kevin james and ray romano, jon cryer is funny.
mcfan said on 19/May/08
Two & a Half Men was on with Chris O'Donnell as the guest. Cryer was taller than him by a half-inch. Sheen looked a solid 1-inch taller than him. On this site O'Donnell is listed as 5'9....something wrong here. Charlie cannot where lifts with the footwear he consistently wears on the show. One thing odd about Sheen is when you look at his public photos, he slouches a lot and has very bad posture. When he is on camera during films, he has much better posture. Is it possible O'Donnell is only 5'8.5?
observer said on 9/Apr/08
On "Two and a Half Men," Cryer always wears shoes. On the show Charlie Sheen commonly walks around just wearing socks. Sometimes Charlie looks as if he's about a half inch taller than Cryer, and sometimes they look like they're the same height. Sometimes Charlie looks as if he's about a half inch taller than Cryer even when Charlie isn't wearing shoes.
Ramsay Fan #420 said on 2/Apr/08
Charlie is no taller than 5'9", just look at pictures of him standing next to his 5'7" father Martin Sheen.
ford said on 16/Apr/07
jon is around 5'9 nothing more, sheen is 5'9.5 possibly, only looks a hair taller than jon on the show.
MD said on 14/Apr/07
When Charlie does straighten up he really is noticeably taller than Jon. It's not huge, but I think it's more than a quarter of an inch:

Rob, what kind of difference do you see?
Jesse said on 28/Mar/07
you should downgrade him cause Sheen is obviously no more than 5'9 and taller 0.5 inch or so
Nolifts81 said on 28/Sep/06
Charlie Sheen is 176cm and Cryer appears to be 175cm. However I suspect Cryer wears lifts.
Mr. R said on 29/Mar/05
I see Jon Cryer at events all over Hollywood, and this is close, but I think he is no taller than 5'9".
