Taller than Steve Harvey for sure. Harvey is more like 5'11 1/2 now and Favreau look 6 feet tall on the nose.

do you guys really think that peak bill muray and thos guy would be almost exact sam height? more like 1,5 inches
berta said on 28/Mar/17
i think this listing could be atleast half inch wrong at peak. cant see him taller than at best 183 and could be just under it now 184. him and john cena back to back 10 years ago and cena would have almost 1 inch on him

I'd say he's a solid 6'1". He's a very large, robustly built man with a head still very large for his body. Generally those head/body proportions are found on a much shorter man. The overall stoutness of him makes his arm legs and torso look shorter.
In many of his films he towers over the other actors. In Swingers Vince looms over everyone but doesnt crazy tall next to Favreau, which is what happens over 4" of difference. Somebody mentioned Very Bad Things; how many Christian Slayter heads would add up to the volume of one Favreau head? Yeah.
I have the same deal. I thought I was 5'11" for years and one day I was barefoot at my house measuring a wall for new panel and realized I was 6'1"
One guy told me he didn't realize how big I was, until we were standing right in front of eachother to shake hands.
PS I'm not buying any hats off the rack either. Even my baseball caps are set to the last two pegs.

He is lucky if hitting 6'0 in morning. Let alone 6'0.5 lol

I saw him recently entering the W Hotel in NYC... Second time I've seen him. Looked shorter than first time but still around 6' 1/2 to 6'3/4. Added weight might play a factor. First time I saw him he was 6'1-6'2 and looked very close if not 6'2. Big dude. Similar size to Gandolfini who when I saw him was in the 6'2 1/2 range....


Lol, Gandolfini wasn't even 6ft1

He's somehow hard to judge height-wise - he can look anything from 5'11 to 6'1 IMO.

In the "Couples Retreat" movie he looks about the same height as Jason Bateman.

6ft0¾-6ft1

As Danimal said, exactly 4in below Vaughn
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Feb/15
"Jon Favreau height: 6ft 0¾in (185cm)"

Near 2in on Jason Bateman in Couples Retreat.
Twithers said on 16/Jan/15
There is no way this man is even 6ft. He was on an episode of "King of Queens" and, at almost nose to nose with straight on camera angle, he looked no more than two inches taller than 5'8 Kevin James
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Oct/14
Looked 186-187cm in Swingers
Danimal said on 5/Aug/14
In swingers looked 5'10-5'11 range. He gave the same height impression as tom Sizemore.

He was the 2nd tallest guy in Swingers and never looked more than 4" shorter than Vince Vaughn, who some claim was as tall as 6'6" and just downplayed his own height. Click Here
Danimal said on 5/Aug/14
Looked at least 6'1" in Swinger (1996) next to minimum 6'5" Vince Vaughn.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Aug/14
Rob can you add Chef? He could look near 6'1" in Chef.
James B said on 4/Apr/14

He looks very near 6'1" to me next to Leo in Wolf fo Wall Street, I'd guess 185cm.

What do you think about this one Rob?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Oct/13
"Jon Favreau height: 6ft 1in (185cm)"

Exactly 4in between him and Vince Vaughn. Has 2in on Bateman, aswell.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Sep/13
He can look 6ft0.5-6ft1 with good posture. Near 2in on Bateman and maybe 4.5in below Vince Vaughn. He's heavy and that might give a shorter impression.

I thought was 6ft2 at first.
Balrog said on 22/Aug/13
He was at least an inch taller than Jason Bateman listed here at 5'11". This guy is heavy but I believe he is 6 feet tall.
cole said on 10/Aug/13
I would say between 6'0.25 and 6'0.75. Ha can appear a bit shorter due to his stocky frame and loose posture. 184-185 cm range.
Goose said on 26/Dec/12
I saw him in NYC. Big guy - 6'1 at least.
Brad said on 30/Oct/12
Hard guy to pin down. Somewhere between 5" 11'-6".5' I would say. His build definately makes him appear shorter, larger head, thick stalky body and arms. He looked very close to Femme Janssen's height in Love & Sex. He is listed as my own height, though I have not met him he appears shorter in comparison to others.
Silent d said on 28/Oct/12
He was taller than famke janssen in a movie by an inch. 184cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Sep/12
I doubt he's as tall as 6ft2 except in shoes maybe
Kevin said on 5/Jun/12
I own a restaurant and stand 5' 10" tall. I took a picture next to him and he practically towed over me. He is a pretty big dude, I would easily give him 6' 1" or 6' 2"
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m- 1.84 m said on 31/Jan/12
Not under 5" 11.75 (182 cm) but not over 6" 1 (185 cm). He can appear in that range, 183.5 cm (6" 0.25) is probably a fair compromise.
avi said on 8/Dec/11
about 6 foot flat. appears strong 6'0 next to strong 6'4 Vince Vaughn
RICHARD said on 16/Nov/11
Maybe he is a weak 6ft,though tall guys like Vince Vaughn and Daniel Stern make it hard for him to appear tall,though 5'11" is pretty good for him,too.?
sean73 said on 23/Oct/11
5-11 flat for this guy for sure.Needs a down grade.
5'8.7678 said on 16/Oct/11
Favreau is a rare case of a 6'0.5 guy who does appear of a shorter, more average height, instead of looking taller like most guys his height look.

I agree Daniel Stern looked massive next to him in "Very Bad Things", but I think his height was downplayed since 5'7.5 Christian Slater had to look like a believable threat as a lunatic sociopath of a friend in that one.

And, in my opinion, Stern is closer to 6'5 than this site gives him. Favreau might not look towering next to Slater, Orser and Piven in that movie, mainly due to angle tricks and stuff, but he still looks at least 4 inches in most scenes.
LUCOSO said on 14/Sep/11
very funny guy looks taller than bateman who is 179 my guess is 183 but can look shorter because of his bad posture
lan jiao said on 12/Sep/11
he look 6ft1 with dress shoe. thats his claim height.
Shaun said on 26/Aug/11
Looked 6' flat in Friends I thought.
Hansen said on 19/Aug/11
6ft2 sounds stupid. 6ft can be accept , 6ft0.5 too much. to be truthful he look no taller than 5ft11 in movie while bulky build push him look 5ft10-5ft11 in iron-man. i believe he hover 181-182cm a weak 6ft.
Danimal said on 15/Aug/11
Legend says on 17/Jul/11
He's 5'11.5

Like hell he is. Looks minimum 6'1" with 6'5" Vince Vaughn in Swingers (1996).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Aug/11
Rob is 185cm, possible?
[Editor Rob: I'm not so sure he really looks that big.]
RICHARD said on 25/Jul/11
He gets absolutely dwarfed by Daniel Stern in 'Very Bad Things',and doesn't look much taller than his (short) co-stars.
Sam said on 21/Jul/11
Did look about listed height compared to Keanu Reeves in The Replacements, only fractionally shorter.
Legend said on 17/Jul/11

He's 6"1 and just looks shorter because he's so fat and has terrible posture

I don't understand how 5'10.5" Ron Livingston (the guy who didn't get Goofie on Swingers)looked to be the same if not greater stature than Favrau in the movie Swingers.

Somebody isn't telling the truth about their height-- and usually it isn't the guy claiming to be shorter.

that is correct John. hah, he's lucky to be a full 5ft11. With Downey's fake 5ft8 and an entire arsenal of wild lifts, people think he's 6ft. no more than 180.5cm. Downey is 169cm. he has 2 be downgraded promptly.

WOW, clearly most of you did not see Swingers (1996). Vince Vaughn had maybe 4" on Jon MAX throughout the movie.
Mark said on 2/Mar/11
What?! I thought that this guy is like 5ft10 when I saw him in Iron Man or I love you man. 5ft11 maximum.
Lord Chief Justice said on 12/Dec/10
wat ?? hes a 6ft-er ?? in ironman 2 he seems a lil taller than Scarlett Johansson....i duno, i think i still stand corrected
James said on 16/Nov/10
183cm?
gordy said on 7/Jul/09
Just walked passed Jon Favreau on the set of Ironman 2 last week - he is 5'11"
Hugh 191cm said on 1/Jul/09
Looked over 6ft in swingers. More like 6ft1-6ft2 if you ask me.
jf said on 13/Jun/09
I used to think he was short in Swingers but that was before I knew how tall Vince Vaugn was, so he looked 6'1" in Swingers. But, if you watch the movie Rudy, he does NOT look 6'1". He appears shorter (and definitely fat). He didn't tower over Sean Astin like you would expect a 6'1" man to. So maybe he was wearing lifts in Swingers? Also he was in Friends for a few shows as "Pete" the superrich guy with the goatee and I don't remember if he looked 6'1". But Rudy makes him look shorter than 6'1".
Hugh 190cm said on 28/May/09
I think he's claimed 6ft2 as his height. I'd say this guy is a weak 6ft1.
Hollywoodfan said on 21/Mar/09
Looked at least 3 inches shorter than Ben Affleck in "Daredevil"

I think he's 6ft0.75 barefoot, no less.

5'11 is tall compared to short loosers...not avergae at all....most of you are below average anyway in intelligence and body...

jon favreau is not 6'0. check him out in friends. shorter than 6'0 scwhwimmer.

Famke probably wore heels
Anonymous said on 7/May/08
in sex and love with famke jansen he looks shorter than her. If shes 5ft11.5 hes 5ft 10-11.
Gago said on 10/Jan/08
At the Break Up press junket he looked 6'2, but he had boots with almost 2 inch heel, so 184 is correct for him.
fenish said on 2/Jan/08
I saw him at the gym years ago. He is definitely over 6ft.
e said on 26/Oct/07
about 6 foot, if you follow his career from Rudy, through Swingers and on, it is his weight that fluctuates so much... pretty fat in Rudy and then totally ripped and cut in Swingers about a year later...quite interesting how he pulled that off.
anonymous said on 22/Jul/07
Throughout Swingers. Looks the same height as Ron Livingston in just about every scene, sometimes maybe an inch taller. Ron's listed here as 5'10½". Jon looks like maybe 6'0" and that's pushing it. Definitely a solid 5'11" though.
RICHARD said on 20/May/07
He is between 6'-6'2. In Very Bad Things he looked like the second tallest actor in the movie next to 6'4 Daniel Stern,but Jeremy Piven,Christian Slater,and Leland Orser were all short actors compared to him.
Danimal said on 29/Mar/07
Looks a lot taller than 5'10" to me, even when he's not standing straight. The man is at least 6'1".
Lmeister said on 28/Mar/07
He looks like a 5'10'' guy, but sometimes when he stands up U can see that he is 6'1''ish.
Marcus said on 28/Mar/07
Looked like a crazy bulldog on The Replacements. Based on the movie I'd say 5'10''-5'11'' (slouching all the time). Didn't look tall on Friends either.
Al capone said on 10/Feb/07
i agree
with this listing, saw a clip in my name is earl when they were in the toilets lol he seemed an inch less then jason lee
Anonymous said on 8/Nov/06
5ft11.Beside rhys ifans, jason lee and p diddy looks this.Probably wears lifts beside vince vaughn in premieres to look taller.
Anonymous said on 17/Sep/06
looks more in the 5ft11 range in that pic with vince vaughn and p diddy.
van said on 13/Sep/06
he gets absolutely dwarfed in very bad things by daniel stern, and doesn't really look much taller than his other (short) co-stars.
theheightguru said on 18/Jun/06
Yeah, I think he's a solid 6ft'er too, but he's gained a lot of weight, and he has a stocky build; I think the combination of those two make him look more like 5'8 or 5'9.
Anonymous said on 17/Jun/06
In Swingers he wasn't dwarfed by 6'5'' Vince Vaughan so he must be at least 6 ft.
Anonymous said on 26/Mar/06
looks a good 2 or 3 inches shorter than earl in my name is earl and didn't look tall in friends
TheJerk said on 24/Mar/06
Another thing to suggest that he is under 6 foot is this picture:

Click Here

In this pic with P. Diddy, Jon may have worse posture by a slight or bad angle or whatevr but I doubt he's more than an inch on the 5-10 Diddy. Which may also suggest that Vaughn is shorter than imagined? Dunno what to think about this guy except that hes probably uner 6 foot by a good inch.
TheJerk said on 10/Mar/06
OK I think the guy looks about 6 even, but I am very confused.I just got done watching tonights King of Queens with John F. guest starring and there was a scene where Kevin James had on shoes (making him 5'9)John looked only an inch taller in his barefeet they were at a childs indoor playground thing. So John looks only 5' 10 there esp. cuz Kevin slouches in the scene. Someone else tell me you caught this. Maybe you should take himdown to 182cm?
Anonymous said on 27/Nov/05
rob i think you right 184 cm maybe 185 because it is very dificult to look tall compare to vince
Heightster said on 11/Jul/05
Significantly taller in person. Wide, thick guy, chubby. Definitely 6-2 or 6-3 in shoes.
hani said on 13/Apr/05
here he looks about 3 inches shorter than 6'2 rhys ifans http://www.movieforum.com/movies/titles/thereplacements/images/gruff.jpg
