Rob, did he really look taller than Ewan in trainspotting? They've always looked same height to me.
Editor Rob
They could be pretty close, though I may still give Miller the edge
MaskDeMasque said on 23/Nov/20
The average guess is surprising. He looks same height as Ewan McGregor and he was like half inch shorter than Michael c hall. 5'9.5

i really dont know why ppl say he looked shorter than M.C.Hall in Dexter when they are exactly the same when the floor is even which you can see many times ... just watch season 5 again! I dont think Michael would edge him out they seem to be even in height. M.C.Hall is def in the 178 or 179 Area no more, no less.

I'd say he's 5'10, if he's listed at 5'9.75, he's probably 5'10 a good chunk of the day. If this is his low height, he's perfectly fine to go ahead and claim 5'10. He looks 5'10 in Elementary also.

Rob u should finally downgrade Sickboy and Renton. They are both an inch shorter than Jude Law.
Sandy Cowell said on 20/Feb/17
At the end of the film 'Plunkett and MacLeane', you see Johnny walking down a tunnel with his co-stars Robert Carlisle and Liv Tyler. The fellas are one on each side of Liv and she is the tallest, at 5ft10!
For that reason, he gets 5ft9 from me! πŸšΆπŸ‘©πŸšΉ

Met the guy solid 5'10"
Gilberg said on 28/Jan/17
Another 5'9.5. Not a mm over.
Flyin said on 13/Dec/16
Oh right, another Google slip up, 5'11 on there.
TJE said on 29/Sep/16
He looked very close to Chris Vance.
TJE said on 29/Oct/15
No. He's a weak 5'9, not weak 5'10.
Sherlock said on 20/Jul/15
I think Jonny Lee Miller is '510" and handsome
HeatherMe said on 15/Oct/14
He looked a good amount shorter than Michael C. Hall. He even had a slight shoe advantage. I think a strong 5' 9" is good for him - 176 cm or 5ft 9.25. Average guy.
Lizardman said on 1/Oct/14
5'10 is too tall.
He's probably a tad shorter than me, that'd make him 175cm. Denfinitely not taller than that.Certainly far from 180 as he's listed on some sources.
aldo 93 said on 22/Aug/14
looked a solid 5 10 in trainspotting
RogerH said on 17/Aug/14
If Jonny is 175 or under, then Michael C Hall should be downgraded. In Dexter, they look the same height and sometimes Jonny is shade over Hall.
Cami said on 1/Aug/14
I met him at JFK airport, I'm 5'5 and was wearing flats, he was 3 inches taller than me TOPS. Me and my mom, were very surprised on how small he looked. 5'7 MAYBE 5'8.
NJP said on 20/Jan/14
With 6ft Benedict Cumberbatch

Obviously not standing flat on the floor (haha) but regardless, drawing a line across the ankles they're pretty much at their relative heights. I'd say Benedict has a 2.5" advantage so 5'9" and possibly a half inch. 176cm seems more accurate.
Doc said on 3/Jan/14
I went to school with him. 5ft 8 barefoot.
MD said on 16/Oct/13

Here he is with 5'11.5" Aidan Quinn (second from left):

Aidan has better posture, but is that still only a 1.5" difference?
Editor Rob
he can look a weak 5ft 10 guy a lot of time, a fraction shy of 5ft 10 might turn out to be nearer.

This guy is hard to figure out. He looked shorter than 5'10 Michael C. Hall on Dexter, and he could even look shorter than 5'9.5 Ewan McGregor. But then he goes on to look only a tad shorter than Charlie Hunnam (however tall he really is). And next to Jude Law he can go from looking taller, the same height, a tad shorter, or WAY shorter... I doubt he is 5'10, maybe closer to 5'9 Rob?
Editor Rob
5ft 9.5 might be a good shout, in the weak 5ft 10 zone I think.
Jason said on 1/Oct/13
Looks shorter than the 5' 10" listed Michael C. Hall in the TV show Dexter, season 4.
shvesta said on 12/Sep/13
Don't believe his footwear is clunky. Think the two-tone shoes he wears are by John Varvatos. He is very thin but believe that is because he does so much running. Looking taller or shorter than Ewan McGregor or Jude Law depends on the camera angle. Either way, he is a handsome package.
MaskDeMasque said on 5/Jun/13
He does look a solid 5'10 in Elementary but i have no idea what sort of footwear he wears. Looks quite clunky. I think he's at least 5'9 though.
johnny said on 8/Feb/13
wears combat boots in trainspotting and still isn't taller than converse wearing ewan mcgregor. 5'8-5'9 but never 5'10
Pssssstyo said on 5/Feb/13
Just got an autograph from the guy I met him in NYC at Barnes and noble nice guy. I'm 5'10 barefooted I'd say he was exactly my height . A lot skinnier in person . Probably 150lbs

Jennifer Carpenter is over 5'10 in a 2" heel, maybe he's not the full 5'10 but 5'6-5'7 is a joke.

he looks around 2in under Jude Law who claims 5'9
so it's not joke
5'10 is joke

I saw him and Lucy Liu at ComicCon. No way in HELL is he anywhere in the neighborhood of 5'10. I'm 5'9 and was wearing flat sandals and I could have thrown him in my pocket. I would say 5'6 and if I was being really generous, I'd give him 5'7. My 5'2 friend and I were saying afterwards how shocked we were by how diminutive he is.

he looked shorter than jennifer carpenter on dexter
i believe 5'6 5'7
Yaspaa said on 15/Nov/12
That's an optical illusion. The heads look similar but the body suggests a bigger guy. he looks a bout 5'10 with Garber.

Here he is with Lucy Liu(who I estimated is wearing 3 inch heels). If this is true, Lucy is 5'2 - 5'3 given how Johnny is 5'10 - 5'11.

He is shorter than jenifer carpenter, that can be clearly seen in Dexter,and she is listed 5 ft 8.25 in, so one of them is listed wrong, or both...
shaz76 said on 7/Jul/11
i dont know hw i got into this argument but there is absolutely no way jonny lee miller is tht tall(hope its the same guy we're all talking abt, Hackers,Emma) impossible to be 5ft10... no way... im 5ft10 with flat shoes i stood next to him in waitrose and he was just past tit-level... i was so shocked to see the guy i used to hav a crush on, shaved shiny bald and short!! realistically he'z between 5ft6 and 5ft8.... the guy is tiny, keep in mind he used to have nice hair which would add a couple of inches, not now.
linke said on 29/May/11
rob is 176 cms possible?
linke said on 24/Nov/10
Yes I agree he looks 176 cms at best,probably flat 5'9.
Leung said on 23/Nov/10
Jonny Lee Miller looks 5'9.25" - 5'9.5" to me. I think Rob hasn't had time to have a proper look at this guy yet.
jtm said on 23/Nov/10
yes mr.r that's him and he is definitely not 5'10.
Mr. R said on 23/Nov/10
Is this the same Jonny Miller who used to be married to Angelina Jolie?
Anonymous said on 22/Nov/10
Barefoot with Michael C. Hall on dexter the other night, seemed about 2 inches shorter. You sure he's not 5'8, Rob?
Lmeister said on 5/Mar/09
Gotta point out again that Jonny Lee Miller seems a tad shorter than Ewan McGregor and 1.5 inches shorter than Jude Law. Rob, what do you think about these photos of Jonny with Kate Holmes:
1)Here height comparison Click Here
2)Here a pic showing their shoes Click Here
3)Click Here
Notice Kate is wearing flat moccasins and Jonny is wearing modern dress shoes.
Comets said on 28/Feb/09
nah, he can't be 5'10, at best 5'8, but definitely not 5'10
Bunny said on 12/Feb/09
5"10 seems right, he's so sexy no matter what though!!! XD
tracy said on 26/Jan/09
Natasha henstridge - 5ft 10 (apparently) - she TOWERS over him in Eli Stone...IN FLAT SHOES!!!!!!!! So no way 5ft 10
Lmeister said on 24/Jul/08
In the Espcapist he was only inch taller than Andy Serkis and sometimes shorter sometimes taller than Vas Blackwood who is usually listed 5ft9...
Margherita said on 13/Jul/08
Miller is between 5'8 to 5'9. I have seen him up close 5 times and he lives near me. I saw him last about 4 Sundays ago.
Lmeister said on 25/Jun/08
Like I said earlier that Jude Law is approximately 2 inches taller than him.
mr anonymous said on 27/Mar/08
Matthew lillard didnt look LOADS taller than him in hackers.And he's 6'3.
Lmeister said on 25/Dec/07
Next to Jude Law(5ft11) he looks like a strong 5ft9.
Crissy said on 3/Aug/07
In Hackers with Angelina Jolie he seemed as tall as Angelina, also that was a while ago. But also in Aeon Flux he seemed a little shorter than Charlize Theron (but I think she was in heels)
jerry said on 14/Oct/06
This guy is very hard to judge. Miller was no more than 5'9 in Trainspotting beside 5'10 McGregor but when he stands beside Angelina you think that he's a solid 5'11. The explanation for this is that Angelina Jolie is just 5'4-5'5 tall.
Paul said on 26/Sep/06
If Angelina Jolie is really 5'7, I think that Jonny is near 6 foot. Just look at this pictures. Jolie in 3 inch heels, Jonny wearing normal shoes. He has 2.5 inches on her. I bet Jolie's smaller. I think Jonny is a legit 5'10, not smaller.

chris said on 8/Sep/06
Probably he's smaller than that. McGregor wears Chucks in Trainspotting, Miller wears boots but Miller just look 1 cm taller than McGregor.
Winterborn said on 18/Jul/06
In the photos posted by ripbigkev, Angelina Jolie was wearing heels that night, so it's not really a fair comparison. In the Mansfield Park shot... that's not Jonny Lee Miller. He's just slightly taller than Click Here, so 5'9" or 5'10" is probably right.
SR said on 3/May/06
The Spotlight directory for male actors says 5'10", and as an actor you or your agent puts your height in for that. Most male actors big their height up (as you know!), so maybe he's being honest for Spotlight, otherwise I'm sure it would say 6ft or more.

Editor Rob
yes, I think the 5ft 10 is pretty much accurate...

that would go with mcgregor maybe 177cm...they are close in height
ripbigkev said on 24/Mar/06
Sorry Rob, can't agree - see Click Here or Click Here - both taken this year - this is no 6 footer. As I said we stood virtually eye to eye. And try this shot - Click Here - surely this rests my case for 5'8". If you don't believe me watch it.

Editor Rob
actually I just realised I'd already added this guy a long time ago at 5ft 10.5, here is the first page, then added him again at 5ft 11. See my recent comment on the kevin mckidd page - after seeing trainspotting again, compared to mcgregor and carlyle he looks closer to 5ft 10...
ripbigkev said on 6/Mar/06
No way in the world = i met jonny about eight years ago when i was stuck on a sidewalk with him for about five minutes waiting for something to happen at the Edinburgh Film Festival - I'm around 5'6 and he would be only one or two inches taller - 5'9 at the outside. This website's got me going now - i remember him in BBC's Mansfield Park and he seemed short compared to rest of cast there too. Maybe this is why angelina....ok i'm gonna have to check her height now...

I would give him six
