Mateyboy, so he sleeps pretty much all day long? XD
No, a fat man can not be 1 single height all day long, especially a fat man like Jonah, because he constantly keeps working out, running and as a result loosing weight, while doing movies.
Whatever height he is, his night height is 0.75in-1in lower then his morning height.
Mateyboy said on 10/Sep/17
In my mind he is a rock solid 5"6 inches tall wakes up it and goes to bed it.
Spencer said on 5/Aug/17
Looks a weak 5'7

And coupled with the business incentivizing him to be overweight for roles, since he hasn't had one role while thin.

My guess is that a guy like Jonah Hill has metabolic issues that causes him to gain weight easily. Obviously, he is capable of being slim, but it's harder for him than for people with more well-functioning endocrine systems and healthy metabolisms.

Rob, he's lost weight, a picture update is necessary.
I never understood fat celebrities. They are rich. They can buy the healthiest food. They have a ton of time to excercise. If they are not fit then they fail at life.

How Hollywood can cast this guy like an A actor these days is beyond me

justin long is not under 3.5 taller than jonah hill
RisingForce said on 5/Apr/17
Pitt consistently towers over him. Leo does sometimes as well, but then not as much as you'd expect other times. But didn't he look short next to a 5'9" max Depp? His height varies, but generally seems like a short, stocky 5'6" flat to me, especially seeing him with Pitt, even with Pitt in sneakers.

@Rob, if it is up to 2 inches, does that means Nick is more likely to be 6'1-2 rather than a strong 6'2?
Editor Rob: Phlevels, not really looked as much at him, would need to do so to get a better idea.
said on 17/Jan/17
Hey Rob, heres a picture of Nick Bateman and Jonah hill. What would you guess for Nick
Editor Rob: depends how much Nick might lose in posture, could be as much as 2 inches.
HonestSlovene said on 14/Jan/17
From what I have seen of him, he generally looks 167-169 cm range depending on different scenes in movies.

Happy Birthday Sammy!
Sammy Derrick said on 20/Dec/16
Happy Birthday to Jonah Hill,he's 33 years old.I'm celebrating my 21st birthday today as well...
Back to height...Jonah Hill can look 5'5 to 5'7 depending on the role he's playing and which actor he's sharing the screen with.
In Superbad/21 & 22 JumpStreet he looked 5'7
Evan Almighty he looked 5'5...Plus the fact he's lost plenty of weight and he's an endomorph making it ALOT harder to get an accurate estimate.

@Jen said on 4/Nov/16
Agree with you. He doesn't look just 1/4 taller than 5'6 ben stiller. More like 1cm or 1/2"
Jen said on 4/Nov/16
I think he's 5ft 6.5in.
eee said on 3/Nov/16
i apologize for the josh gad photo, in other shots jonah looks pretty similar to josh
Chuck said on 20/Oct/16
He looked 5'7 on 21 Jump Street & Superbad
Shredder said on 19/Oct/16
He is 5'7
Shredder said on 5/Oct/16
This guy is as tall as G , under 5 ft 7 but not much.
heightmaster3000 said on 29/Aug/16
Doesn't come off that short in movies. But looking at red carpet pics I'd say 1,68-1,70 (5'6 to 5'7) sounds about right. Don't buy anything below that.
argh said on 6/Jul/16
i think 169 is possible
truth said on 10/Jun/16
AJ said on 11/May/16
Just saw the trailer for war dogs. He looks 5'7" with Miles Teller. I think he should be adjusted back to 169cm.
Jacky Huynh said on 3/May/16
I think he's about 5ft 8in
James St. said on 27/Mar/16
Hey Jane, why didn't you take out your mob and snap a pic, preferably with you in it. Then you could have posted a pic with your own height and it would've sealed the deal. I mean, if you're for real, that would mean a HUGE downgrade for so many of his fellow co-stars!
Are you sure the street was even? Maybe you had a shoe advantage and you didn't realize. Also, were you guys walking or standstill? Lot's of variables here. Next time, do the Austin Power thing and snap them pics girl!!!
Jane said on 3/Mar/16
Lol just saw him today and he's shorter than me I'm 5'2, there's no way that man is 5'6

Max said on 29/Feb/16
A weak 5'6" at best
TJE said on 10/Feb/16
Nah, always looks 5'5 range with Pitt.
Peter175 said on 14/Jan/16
He looks like an honest 5'7 next to brad pitt, unless he's lifting
BT said on 11/Jan/16
@James: You are fine saying 169 cm. You'll look close enough to it for most of the day. Whatever you claim though, don't be that 168-169 cm guy that keeps saying he's 173 cm and gets angry when people question it! ;)
said on 7/Jan/16
Rob, my out of bed height is 169.7 cm, my night height varies between 168 and 168.6 cm, depending on how hard the day was, but in 80% of the time I'm around 168.5 cm at night. During the day I can pretty much hold up to a 168.7. When people ask me how tall I am, should I say 169 or 168cm?
Editor Rob: if you say 168 you are probably going to look that height to the vast majority and not many in life would think you weren't about that range, but saying 169 isn't that much of a round up, especially if you can get 168.5 range consistently.
It really is up to you what you feel best going with. Either mark is fine, at least you are not falling into a trap of adding 2-3cm like many people do.
the shredder said on 26/Dec/15
He looks 5'6.5 to 5'7 honestly.
TJE said on 11/Sep/15
Jonah could probably be 5'6.5 if he learned the Alexander technique or even just kept his legs straight.
IronFist said on 15/Aug/15
@Leaunee: "Men are mostly 5'9 - 6'11"
I take it you watch a lot of NBA? 5'7 really isn't that short. It's just slightly below average. 6'11, on the other hand, is freakishly tall. 99% of all men are less than 6'3. I honestly don't know why you would even consider 6'11 as a relevant number to throw around for comparison unless it was a typo and you meant to say 5'11.
David said on 19/Jul/15
I think he's 169 cm (5'6.5). Probably 5'7 out of bed. On the short side for sure but doesn't look super short either unless he's next to a 6'2+ guy. Just saw a picture of him next to 6'0 Channing Tatum and the height gap wasn't all that huge. Tall among the short guys or at the very low end of average range.
Leaunee said on 20/Jun/15
He is short for a man,men are mostly 5'9 -6'11 and Jonah hill is 5'7 or 5'6
anon said on 2/Jun/15
He'd be closer to 5'7 than 5'5. I think 169cm would be accurate.
hey rob said on 17/May/15
chunkier people look taller but most are wrong i think about him being 169-170
Sam said on 15/Apr/15
Could you add Cyrus, Moneyball, The Wolf of Wall Street, This is the End and True Story to his credits Rob?
NL said on 15/Mar/15
169 - 170 CM
5'6.5 - 5'7
JB said on 26/Jan/15
He's definitely on the higher end of short. 5'6" seems right. I don't see him as low as 5'5" like others are saying on here.
Magic said on 9/Jan/15
Seeing the photo with Pitt, i would say 5'5" min 5'4" max 5'6"(may be for prespective of photo where pit is a bit more next)
tom said on 6/Jan/15
I think this is about right. He doesn't look much smaller than Michael Cera in Superbad, and, while short, hard to believe he's 5'5". Same height as Daniel Radcliffe? No chance. Keep in mind for Moneyball, Brad Pitt is made to look taller, in order to fit with the listed 6'4" Billy Beane.
snatch said on 25/Dec/14
pitt towered him and people here are debating if pitt is even 5 foot 10
he's like 5 foot 4 or 5 foot 5
he looks average on screen but in person he's no more than 5 5
High or Low said on 20/Dec/14
5'5 and no more. That's why he struggles with his weight, he's like a matzo ball.
SAMMY DERRICK said on 20/Dec/14
Happy birthday Jonah 31!!!It's my birthday and I'm turning 19!!! and I'm 5'8.5
Anon said on 15/Dec/14
In NATM2, he edged out Ben Stiller.
S.J.H said on 13/Dec/14
therefore ben stiller only 5'6 flat
Dmeyer said on 16/Nov/14
I met leo and jonah leo is not a mm under 5'11 and jonah isnt smaller than 5'6.25 and 5'6.5-6.75 isnt impossible
Drew said on 16/Oct/14
Ya I don't see Jonah as being under this listing, either 168cm or 169cm is fine for him.
LNguyen said on 1/Oct/14
Listing seems fair, but 169 cm may be fair, too.
Sean5 said on 9/Aug/14
My opinion is a 5-7 inches is a true towering difference, Leonardo has to be 181cm if Jonah is 168cm in Wolf of Wall Street
Dector said on 16/Jul/14
He looks 5'7 or at least 5'6.5"
cole said on 28/Feb/14
Judging by my estimations for the people I am about to mention, I think 168 cm is spot on for Jonah Hill. The listing could be pushed up to 169-170 cm to make it a little bit more accurate with what he looks with Leo DiCaprio, if he's 182 cm, with Channing Tatum if he's 184 cm, with Brad Pitt if he's 180 cm and with Matthew McConaughey if he's 180 cm.
I think all of those guys can look 1-2 cm shorter than listed if Jonah is 168 cm. He does look this listed height with Bryan Cranston, who is not taller than 179 cm in my book. This is just my opinion, I understand that the factors in the pictures/videos I have used to compare can vary, and that what I'm talking about is a mere 1-2 cm difference, which can be hard to spot and tell for sure.
If Jonah Hill is 168 cm:
180 cm - Leonardo DiCaprio
183 cm - Channing Tatum
179 cm - Brad Pitt
179 cm - Matthew McConaughey
Let me be clear. I'm not saying there's something awfully off with the current listings, I just think there could be made some tiny adjustments. The biggest one I feel is DiCaprio, who does NOT look 14 cm taller than Jonah at all.
really? said on 21/Feb/14
Really? Not saying he's tall, but he looks AT LEAST like a solid five seven?
DMEYER said on 3/Feb/14
i met jonah and i was barefeet he had skate shoes 0.6-0.7 in type so nearly 2cm more shoes than me he seemed about 3.5 in shorter than me so 5 ft 11.5 minus 3.5in than near 5 ft 8 so he looked solid 5 ft 7 but maybe his hair folled me
mike said on 26/Jan/14
Just watched SNL with Leo and him standing side by side. It seems like the difference is between 4-5 inches. If Leo is 5'11 1/2, that would put Jonah between 5'6 1/2 and 5'7 1/2. Now, of course, it's possible that hes wearing footwear that gives him some extra height. I don't think he's quite 5'7 - like myself - but hovers between there and 5'6. Maybe 5'6 1/2 - 5'6 3/4.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Jan/14
LOL, anon, you really know little about Hollywood if you think the industry isn't image conscious. A sizable percentage of actors wouldn't have got where they were if it wasn't for their looks. As a young actor the competition in Hollywood is immense and if you haven't got looks on your side you really have to have the x factor in acting ability and charisma to make it and it takes a lot of balls to try to make it, that's what I'm saying.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Jan/14
He looks the same height and build as G to me.
Adamz said on 22/Jan/14
Mr. R, I met Dicaprio. He is taller than 5-10.5". I will say he's about 6'.
Blaze said on 13/Jan/14
5'6 is right. Next to 6'8 kevin love he reached his shoulder and that's roughly 14 inches. I know because I'm 6'5 my 5'3 stepmom reaches my shoulder.
Mojo said on 5/Jan/14
i think he's listed as 5'7, but he's clearly a bit stocky for that. 5'6.5 is fair.
Mr. R said on 30/Nov/13
I saw Jonah today with Leo DiCaprio. They walked right past me. Jonah is a little below 5-6. Leo, at 5-10.5, towered over him.
said on 25/Nov/13
@Bob, I agree 100% with that. I laugh when someone uses "towered" to describe a 2 or 3" difference in height between people. Some just use that word too loosely.
[Editor Rob: the only exception I allow is when describing an infamous photo I took of '5ft 7.9 measured Jenny' towering '3 inches' above a '5ft 8 Glenn'.]
Powerhouse said on 5/Aug/13
He was a solid inch shorter than ben stiller in the watch.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Jul/13
Yeah 5'6.5" I'd have guessed. Watched the rather lurid Get Him to the Greek yesterday and I thought he looked 5'6" range. Unfortunate looking guy, looks very awkward, takes massive confidence as a short, fat, plain looking guy though to put himself in the spotlight as he has done, glad to see that Hollywood still embraces acting talent, not just basing everything on looks for male actors!
teej said on 23/Jun/13
He's short 5'6 is about right for him, but he's a great actor
Bob said on 16/May/13
5'8 doesn't "tower" over someone whose 5'6! Especially with Jonah's build.
DEREK said on 3/Jan/13
@Silent d you're retarded
Eddie was being sarcastic in his reply to melani.
too bad aou aint getting a girl with brains cuz they like dudes with brains themselves.
Joey said on 28/Nov/12
pretty short guy...168cm is possible if its directly out of bed in the morning..otherwise id say weak 167cm to 165cm at lowest
angelo said on 10/Nov/12
no way he is 169, he is max 165, ive seen him plenty times, im 5 ft8 and i towered him
Reality Check said on 6/Nov/12
@Melani, you obvisouly know nothing at all.
Silent d said on 3/Oct/12
Not all guys. Well proportioned and a brain is good enough for me. Don't like the superficial girls. Eddie i disagree with you. You're too superficial. 169cm.
Eddie said on 28/Sep/12
@ MElani,well, all guys like girls with big boobs, big butts, nice thighs, and a real slim waist! ALL guys do! I hope you know that.
melani said on 26/Sep/12
Jonah is around 5'9 or 5'8 without shoes. Ive seen him in person. I like tall guys though like 6ft or 5'11,. Not any shorter or taller. I like slim guys. All girls do trust me.
leonari said on 24/Sep/12
I don't see it. 168 is perfect
said on 4/Jun/12
Rob is there a chance that jonah could be a weak 5ft 7in 5ft 6.75in.
[Editor Rob: I think a strong 5ft 6 is possible]
Dmeyer said on 14/Feb/12
Rob i met him i was barefeet hé looked 3.5-4 in shorter than me but hé had 0.7 in type so hé seemed near 5'7.5 shoes on 169 is closer
MaskDeMasque said on 13/Feb/12
so cera was 5'8 in superbad?
the shredder said on 12/Feb/12
Because he is 5'6
MaskDeMasque said on 12/Feb/12
if he is 5.5 then howcome he looked about 2 inches smaller than cera in superbad?
Bradi said on 12/Feb/12
Brad Pitt dwarf him in Moneyball 5+ inches hes also same height as ellen.
said on 8/Feb/12
Rob you changed his height!!! Correct? Couple of days ago he was 169...
In my opinion 5'6" is OK but he could be a tad under. Well his proportions sure don't help him.
[Editor Rob: he hasn't been changed from 5-6 although a fraction over 5ft 6 is possible for him.]
MR.HEIGHT said on 31/Jan/12
MaskDeMasque said on 31/Jan/12
he looked two inches shorter than cera in superbad, so 5'6.5 is correct.
Silent d said on 27/Jan/12
172cm is pushing it steven. 169cm is perfect for him.
steven said on 19/Jan/12
he look short but look 3cm taller than ben stiller.
Silent d said on 29/Dec/11
5 foot 6 and a half.
Kozi Bro said on 21/Dec/11
I just saw Jonah Hill at Starbucks by the LAX airport. He is definitely 5ft 7. Might even be pushing 5ft 7.5 to 5ft 8 in shoes. He as wearing low cut brown dress shoes. Definitely no lifts in them. Pleasant chap.
jake, 1.82-1.83 m said on 10/Dec/11
5 ft 6.25 in maybe?
LAN Jiao said on 4/Nov/11
Old listing had jonah at 5'7. But his 5'6.
Silent d said on 28/Oct/11
He was about the same height as ellen. In superbad emma stone was taller than him. All the other characters dwarfed him expecially michael cera. I think he is 5 foot 6. Can't give him anymore.
LAN Jiao said on 18/Oct/11
lol.. some no brainer would put jonah down 5'4. now see how short arse..ben stiller claim 5'7 and shorter than 5'6 jonah by an inch. funny world..
jhill said on 23/Sep/11
he looks so much taller now that he is skinny!..u guys sure he is only 5'6?!
dmeyer said on 21/Sep/11
defenetly solid 168cm and maybe 169cm
dmeyer said on 21/Sep/11
i was barefeet when i saw him he had nike dunk style he looked about 3.5-4 in shorter than me so about 5 ft 7.5 shoes on he could be 5 ft 6.5 maybe i got fooled
gg said on 2/Sep/11
he looks 4 or 5 inches shorter than sandler...sandler is 5-9 or 5-8.5...that would be my guess
gg said on 2/Sep/11
he looks real short in superbad...5-4 or 5-5
said on 17/Jun/11
I would say jonah hill is about 5ft5, look at this movie trailer Click Here
jonah looks 5'5 with brad pitt towering over him, perhaps even shorter. brad pitt is listed on this site as 5'11, and he makes jonah hill look like a dwarf,,, much shorter than 5'7.
dmeyer said on 3/Jun/11
he was about 3.5 to 4 in shorter than me i was barefeet he had 0.6 0.75 in type shoes he could be 169cm

He's definately short, noticeably shorter than Michael Cera and Mclovin who are both 5'8

He is no more than 5'6". Stood right next to him but didn't get chance to meet him.

Rip said on 30/Sep/07
Jonah is not 5'9"....There is just no way!
Chris said on 30/Sep/07
Geez, he keeps going down. If this height is true, why does he look big on screen?
glenn said on 23/Sep/07
according to pics i saw friends had,justin long could be 5-10.that would explain alot.and that bruce willis is as tall as i see him.
Rafael said on 23/Sep/07
