Jude Law's Height

5ft 10 ¼ (178.4 cm)

English actor best known for roles in The Talented Mr Ripley, Sherlock Holmes, Spy, Gattaca, Enemy at the Gates, A.I, Cold Mountain, Alfie and Existenz.

'People always go, "God, Jude's really short." No, I just hang out with very, very, very tall men."

He is NOT short!
Monkey knees said on 16/Aug/19
Easily 5ft 10.33in in the morning. Very slim/slight build, and quite a large head make him look smaller. Doesn't seem to wear lifts, too...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jul/19
Editor Rob: 5ft 10.5 is always a possibility, but I think over time I ruled out 5ft 11+ and though anywhere in 5ft 10 to 11 range.


Rob, I think that’s a fair middle ground. 5ft9 and 6ft are both extremities...and with Matt Damon now at a weak 5ft10, it would make better sense...he looks visibly taller in Talented Mr Ripley, like almost an inch. Worst case scenario alternatively you could give Damon the 5ft9½...but generally he’s looked close enough to his claimed 5ft10. Personally I go with Jude getting the 5ft10½ .
Rock it Baby said on 23/May/19
Last year during a WIRED interview he claimed to be 6' on a good day and 5'11 1/2 on a bad day. I think he's the classic 1,80 guy.
Lyanna said on 4/May/19
I think the reason behind this discrepancy is his posture. I noticed a Captain Marvel still in which he was slouching and I saw him in The Young Pope where his posture looked considerably different. He seems to be the type of actor who is constantly changing his body language,manner of walking and posture for every role. In Captain Marvel,he's hunching over Vers,which could be the sign of proteciveness or possession toward her. It is pretty noticeable during their sparring session. In The Young Pope,his posture is straighter and his head is held high which totally fits his character.
I think his ever-changing posture explains different reports of his height.

@rising-174. How tall are you out of bed and before bed if you don't mind me asking
179cm guy said on 30/Mar/19
Rob, wouldn't you agree that Law pulls off looking like a 179cm guy most of the time? He certainly did next to Colin Firth: ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here )

He also holds down 5'10 range better than Guy Pearce ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) and Daniel Craig ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here )

What your thoughts on a 5'10.5 listing for Jude Rob? Either that or I think that both Pearce and Craig need quarter inch downgrades to a flat 5'10.

Tunman said on 25/Mar/19
Sounds like he's joking with height claims.While I doubt he's as short as 5'9 maybe 5'10 is the correct figure though.
Arthur! said on 24/Mar/19
So Rob, looks like Jude Law has claimed 5'9, 5'10 and 5'11.5 over all these years. That's a big discrepancy!
Editor Rob
Yeah, basically he makes up a height he feels like claiming from one day to the next...last thing I seen in him was that Fantastic Beasts, I think he looked shorter than Eddie Redmayne who i arguably between 5ft 11 and 6ft.
JD 5'9" said on 10/Mar/19
At times he did look 5'9ish during Captain Marvel. Not sure about the height of the other actors though. He definitely has a slim frame and sometimes has slacked posture which might make people think he's shorter than he really is.
KH said on 13/Feb/19
Jude is the type of guy that tries to be whimsical/funny all the time he certainly is taller then 5'9. He isn't 6'0 either which he knows full well. Basically he isn't going to give a clear answer to a question like this. This listing seems about right to me.
burnitdownhomies said on 16/Jan/19
Why would he claim 5'9 if he's 5'10?
berta said on 14/Dec/18
i wonder if he really was serious in that recent 5`11 1/2 claim. I can believe 180 at best at at worst 178 but never that tall
Nono said on 13/Dec/18
he is 5ft11.5
not 5ft10.25
Jtm said on 13/Dec/18
maybe 5'10 on a good day if he's lucky.
Guest66 said on 12/Dec/18
Rob, he just claimed (in somewhat joking manner) to be “ 6’0 on a good day and 5’11.5 on a bad day” and wished he was 6’1 in a recent WIRED video. I find it weird that he’s always speculating about his height and never really comes up with a simple honest answer. Do you think it’s coming from the insecurity ?
SD(172) said on 11/Dec/18
In this video, Click Here @7:16 he says "I wish I could say 6'1,I'm a little shorter than that, on a good day I'm 6'0 on a bad day 5'11...and a half"
I think he inflated his height to impress the beautiful Natalie Portman.
JD 5'9" said on 28/Nov/18
@FM Ewan has an obvious footwear advantage, and the angle makes him look taller in that pic. Not really great for comparing heights.
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Nov/18
I doubt the ground is flat, but Jude actually looks no taller than 5'9" for once! I wouldn't guess Ewan over 176 cm myself, but maybe there is more of a chance of 5'9.5" than I thought. Or he has some extra help in those boots. Jude's height is one of the biggest mysteries on this site.
FM said on 23/Oct/18

Rob, what do you think of this pic of Jude Law with Ewan McGregor?
Editor Rob
Here is a link to a fuller version: Click Here. I'm not sure if that ground is totally flat, but Jude doesn't look a 5ft 10-11 guy there...even if he has a fraction less footwear than Ewan.
Jakob said on 20/Oct/18
I don't know what his personality is like but I must give Jude Law some kudos for not seeming to care about his going bald and resorting to surgeries and combovers. He joins the 'going bald gracefully' club, also home to Ed Harris, Prince William and Gustaf Skarsgard...:)
Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Oct/18
Julia Roberts is nowhere near 5'9" and I honestly doubt she's even a full 5'8", but does Jude actually wear lifts? He'll wear boots, but I've also seen him wear some really low cut shoes. He's taller than Daniel Craig, though. 2005: Click Here Click Here Click Here and 2002: Click Here Click Here

In normal shoes Jude Law is shorter than Daniel Craig and clearly shorter than Eddie Redmayne.

he cant be 5'10, he must be taller than that, unless he lost some height, he was significantly taller than Julia Roberts in the movie 'closer' and she's listed as 5'9
Gracian said on 27/Aug/18
I do not understand this guy, why does he claim 5'9", 5'10" and 6 feet since he looks like a typical 179cm guy? Here are his photos from the year 2016 next to Colin Firth and Guy Pearce, Law beside Colin looks at least 179 cm, except that he looks taller than Guy Pearce: Click Here

He looks taller than typical 178 cm guy. Rob, your thoughts about Jude?
Editor Rob
I think Jude likes to keep people guessing. Overall I would say he never looks under 5ft 10 and never really as tall as 6ft....but anywhere from 5ft 10-11 I think he could appear.
Gracian said on 23/Jul/18
Rob, please answer me. You said Law might be more solid 5'10" than Craig, and he really looks taller than Crai. And he looks like 2 inches taller than Jason Statham, even if Statham can be 174 cm, this still gives Law 179 cm. Is 5'10.5" or at least 5'10" and 3/8 inch is possible for him?
Editor Rob
He has pulled that figure off, but he seems to have varying height claims, the most likely I think is anywhere in 5ft 10 range up to 10.5.
Gracian said on 10/Jul/18
I think Jude can even be someone like Chris Pine, who does not even care about half an inch. Jude looks 2 inches taller than Jason Statham: Click Here

Even if Statham can sometimes look like 5'8.5" it still makes Jude 5'10.5". Rob, besides Jude looks taller than Daniel Craig, who is listed on your website as the same height: Click Here

I think it's safe to argue at least 5'10" and 3/8 inch for Jude. Rob, closer 179 cm than 178 is possible for him?

Well, if he himself stated to be 5’9”, he is in no way taller than that.

He may be tall as me, I'm 5 ft 9 3/4 in (177.3 cm) so I guess his height is too.

He was defnintly hunching when i saw him so was probably walking around at 5ft9 if he really is 5ft10.25
El Capitan America said on 22/Feb/18
I guess 5'8" 1/2. That is interesting what Kate is saying about his arms and legs of a shorter man. He does have short legs but 5'7" it is hard to say. I cannot go shorter than 5'8" 1/2 without knowing more.
HonestSlovene said on 12/Feb/18
I agree with Dmeyer, 179 cm.

my guess :

out of bed = 180.5cm

at night : 178.5cm
Isaac 5'10 said on 28/Jan/18
Man that's crazy, it seems no one can agree on this guys height. I'm seeing guesses as low as 5'7" and as high as 6' in the comments. I'm guessing 5'10" flat (likely around my height), maybe he occasionally drops below 5'10" He could have been claiming 5'9" to try and be extra honest. Occasionally I do that.
James B 170.8cm said on 23/Jan/18
Rob maybe i caught him without his lifts?
Editor Rob
Remember Piers Morgan calling Jude a small guy...and he isn't exactly over 6ft himself. Maybe he sometimes does give off a shorter impression, but I wouldn't say the guy seems a big lift-wearer or anything.
Jake94 (5'9 said on 22/Jan/18
@Kate As I stated below I wouldn't rule out him being closer to 5'9" and wearing small lifts. It is unusual for someone over 5'10" to claim 5'9". However saying he's 5'7.5" seems a bit extreme. He's never looked that short.
Lynx said on 15/Jan/18
@Kate, do you really think he's using almost 7CM lifts on every event he ever went to?
Click Here
There for example, Cameron Diaz is 5'8, with high heels, Law still looks an inch or two taller than her, also with his awful posture there. He's using taller heels than her? Well, those are the perfect shoes then, its weird how every actor on Hollywood is not using those.

And its funny how you say, ''on the street'' like you're seeing him every day with Craig, a single picture is not enough to downgrade someone 3 inches lol.
Kate said on 13/Jan/18
If you compare photos of Craig Law you will see something quite odd. In some pictures they appear the same height. Like at events and parties. But out on the street Craig is a definite 3 inches taller. But honestly all you have to do is look at leg length. Law has short arms and legs. He is a 5"7 1/2 man that wears lifts and heels. So he will appear 5"10.
Editor Rob
I think (in more footwear) with Lewis Hamilton who most agree was measured about 171cm, it's hard to believe Law is as short as Lewis.
Kate said on 13/Jan/18
Rob, now come on! We both now this height you have given him is incorrect. This man is no where near 5"10. Google Jude law with Daniel craig. Daniel who is around 5"10 towers over him. I give this man 5"7 1/2. Those are the legs and arms of a shorter man.
Jake94 (5'9 said on 12/Jan/18
Do you think it's possible he just admitted to being a 5'9" lift wearer? Why else would he say he's 5'9" if he's actually a solid 5'10"?
Editor Rob
It's always been a strange quote from Law. I'm not sure he's implying that he's a lift-wearer. If he is, they are very subtle, nothing like his old friend Robert Downey!
Jean Melnick said on 6/Jan/18
His looks are breathtaking. Also, he is one of the most talented actors of our generation. A few years ago I saw him in New York City on Broadway playing Hamlet. His was the definitive Hamlet. Absolutely perfect. I also saw Richard Burton in Hamlet around 1964. Burton was poor and over acting as usual.
Jude Law can play any part as is true of well-trained English actors.
His height of 5'8 or 5'10 is irrelevant for him. He is perfection.
I loved him opposite Cameron Diaz in their light comedy. They physically fit beautifully together and Diaz is very tall.
Love Jude Law.
Dmeyer said on 5/Jan/18
179cm solid like 5'10,5 wouldnt shock me to me he could even pull off 180cm or 181 even when his shoes are normal
James B said on 18/Dec/17
Was that a joke Rob lol?

My uncle who is only 5ft7 must have met his shorter twin too when he met him in person back in 2008, because he described him as small as well. Could have said that out of jealousy because jude was getting all the female attention that day lol.

That said I wonder Rob if jude is a guy who wears lifts too appear taller when he's in the public eye?
Editor Rob: I am sure because of Jude's slim and non-hulking body frame he sometimes seems a smaller guy in person.
Lifts though? Maybe a little extra heel at times, but I haven't seen anything obvious that he's worn. He's no Robert Downey, that's for sure.
James B said on 17/Dec/17
I would not even rule out 5ft8 when i walked past jude. I have friends who are 5ft8 so i know what that height looks in real life.

Ĺke I said before he could have been walking with very bad posture.
Editor Rob: you met his shorter twin!
Wayne said on 25/Nov/17

Good upgrade Rob I say he's 5'10 like most what people in the comments say 178 cm -179 cm
HonestSlovene said on 31/Oct/17
Yes I agree with this upgrade Rob, he definitely looks somewhere in the 5'10"-5'11" range and nothing under 5'10".
Slim 6' said on 30/Oct/17
GOOD upgrade. 👍🏻.
Anonymous said on 28/Oct/17
5'1-.25 is a good guess. Definitely solid inch taller than 5'9" Daniel Craig who wears lifts.
Slim 6' said on 25/Oct/17
Jude and Daniel Craig should swap listings.
Editor Rob: they look very close, but I think Law can certainly pull off looking over 5ft 10 flat a bit more than Craig has...

There is probably enough to say Jude falls into stronger 5ft 10 range so should be given that mark of 10.25!

I appreciate he could be dropping a fraction when saying 5ft 10
Rising - 174 cm said on 11/Oct/17
Wow, that quote where he says he's 5'9" to 6'0" depending on his mood just got even more cryptic knowing he was listed 6'0" early in his career. He can't be 5'9" unless he's one of the most clever lift wearers in Hollywood. This guy is more than an inch taller than Statham and clearly taller than Matt Damon. He looked taller than Daniel Craig as well.
Heightster said on 6/Oct/17
Honest, rare self-proclaimed 5' 9" and that's barefoot. So 5' 10" in shoes, 5' 11" and easily passes for a 'strong' "Hollywood 5-11" from other industry types' POV (point of view) who stand 5' 7" to 5' 9" and claim "5-11" to "6 feet." Definitely a good looking, smooth dude.

Slim, i think Jude and Matthew would be identical in height. I Rob has him perfectly at 5ft10in. Aging well. He is more muscular these days, looks more masculine in general, can't just say he is skinny anymore. But when in mid stride in slippers on the street with no blazer, proportion wise, he just doesn't look more than 5ft10.25in.
*************
The fact that Jude never got hair transplants just goes to show how seriously he wants to be taken. TBH even in his 90's films he wasn't that skinny. More skinny fat.
Slim said on 3/Sep/17
Tonyx, prooportions are very good for height guessing actually, it helped me deduce harry styles real height(nothing above 5'9.25").
James B said on 2/Sep/17
Rob when you see British celebs like Jude law and James nessbitt in normal everyday do you think they probably walk with hunched posture too try and keep themselves anonymous?

Both those guys seemed somewhere in the 5'9 range when I bumped into them.
Editor Rob: some celebs do that, keep head down, wear sunglasses, hats to reduce the amount of people who notice.

It could get annoying having everybody recognise and try to stop you...also because you don't *really* want to upset people by shooshing them away or ignoring them, but being a celeb, unfortunately you have too, in order to get on with what you are doing that day.

No way he's 5'9" flat, weak 5'10" at worst. He's probably just rounding down so he comes across as extremely honest.
Slim said on 31/Aug/17
I do doubt Jude would be 2 cm shorter than McConaughey, Jude needs a quarter inch upgrade tbh.

Not sure where you all are getting your data. I'd give Jude a decent 5'10.5. He never looks a flat 5'10.
Slim183 said on 24/Aug/17
179 would be the absolute maximum though. Not sure if Damon was that much shorter though.... the talented mr Ripley wasn't the best for height comparison.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Aug/17
I think 178cm is little low for him. That makes Matt Damon at 175-176cm max and Robert Downey Jr. 169cm.

A good 179cm is my vote

@Slim: I've seen quite a few done it on the site. I suppose you'd be one of a number who I got the idea from, but I also saw my previous name got me confused with a couple other posters, perhaps due to the first letter or number of syllables. I'm not completely sure about Jude's height, but I'd say he rarely looks less than about 5'10" and can pass for taller. A few people have mentioned lifts with him, one claimed Jude even admitted to it, though I'd take this with a grain of salt without proof. However, Jude has expressed dissatisfaction with his height and has said he'd like to be six feet more than once. I'd like for him to clarify that comment about being 5'9". I always assumed he was "feeling 5-9" that day given the context because I can't actually see him that short. In fact, since Jude was previously listed 5'11", it's made it much easier to see Brad Pitt potentially in the 5'10" range rather than a full 5'11".
Realist said on 18/Jul/17
In King Arthur Eric Bana towered him and he was in lifts I would say 5'9.5 160 is fair I am 5'9 and change and he is my height just thin.
Slim 182 cm said on 17/Jul/17
Rising174, did you get your idea 💡 to put your height in your name from me? 😊 I bet you did!

Jude is a decent 178 or 179 guy. just abit above the strong average which I think is 177.
RisingForce said on 9/Jul/17
The Pine analogy only goes so far as a legit six footer will be more likely to drop a fraction. Jude can easily look over 5'10" of course, so 5'10.25" is possible, I'd say a better chance than with Daniel Craig, though it's fair for both. But I think it's more likely that an honest claim will just seem taller and that we should probably question other heights rather than just assume those are correct and others are taller than they claim. Someone on the Daniel Craig page mentioned Jude admitted wearing lifts at events, but I've never seen proof of this.
Slim 181.5 cm said on 5/Jul/17
Dmeyer, he could still be a guy who dropped a fraction and said 5'10. I agree with you Jude is 5'10.5 maximum. Defiantly not three quarters and above.

He deserve à 5'10,5 listing or aleast 5'10,25 , if he didnt claim any height you would have listed him 5'10,75-11 , probably. À ,5 FT 10,3-10,4 Guy , like Chris pine 6'0,3-0,5 and just says 6 ft

@ Slim 181 cm - Yes, I can imagine Jude's footwear bolstered up his height a bit for Sen on that incident of seeing Jude on a train! In the photo above, Jude doesn't look more than 5ft10, I agree!

Hi rob, who would be the taller man between guy Ritchie and Jude law?
Editor Rob: I think Ritchie could measure a bit taller, though Jude has always had a chance of being a bit taller than 5ft 10.

He could still be a guy who simply dropped a fraction and said 5ft 10.

@ Sen - What an amazing experience to have! I don't know what I'd do if I sat next to someone whose films I watch! I think taking in his height would be last thing on the list, yet it is something we can't help doing, especially if we see someone standing up right in front of us!
However, you did notice Jude's height - good on you for that! - and you reckoned he looked 6ft. I haven't read anything on his height to be quite honest, but I do have films of his, at least 6 at last count, and it won't be too difficult to compare him to Stephen Fry in 'Wilde', or 5ft3 Jennifer Jason Leigh in Existenz, where he does look tall! He also looks reasonably tall in the enjoyable yarn 'Closer', which also stars Clive Owen, 6ft1.5, Natalie Portman, 5ft2, and Julia Roberts, who is a debatable 5ft8.5-9!
I'll settle for 5ft11.25 for Jude, obviously pushed up as a result of your evidence and honesty!
Sen said on 12/May/17
I was on the same train as Jude Law on the way to Wembley to watch a spurs match not long ago. I am 5ft11.25 and he seemed to be taller then me. I would say he's touching 6ft. This isn't 100% accurate as he was a few feet away from me. He was also with a very tall blonde women around the same height as him.

@Guest66 Have you heard anything about the social phenomenon that is called a joke? (respoding to your first post).

Looks 177-178. Strong 5'9-weak 5'10.
Guest66 said on 6/Apr/17
Whoever commented from my name, I've never even said Jude was 5'9 flat. I think he can be 5'9.5 at his lowest.
Cameron said on 5/Apr/17
At worst he's a weak 5'10". If he really is 5'9" flat he must wear lifts or at least thick shoes all the time.
RisingForce said on 29/Mar/17
Actually, the photos with Statham vary too much to draw much of a conclusion: Click Here Click Here Click Here So Jude could be 5'10" flat and Statham 5'8.5", but we don't even know if Jude's 5'9" claim was serious. There's a good chance he was joking about "feeling short" that day given the joke because frankly 5'9" makes no sense for Jude. IF he was serious then it'd be more logical to assume he was a 177 cm guy who was rounding down for effect. Otherwise, he must be a chronic lift wearer.
Guest66 said on 28/Mar/17
Maybe just got measured right in the middle of 5'9 and 5'10, therefore claims both. Otherwise there is simply no reason for him to claim 5'9 if he is 178cm.
Cameron said on 24/Mar/17
Yeah, I just really can't see him as a 5'9" flat guy. Maybe by night time he dips a bit below 5'10" and he was just being brutally honest. Either way he has the proportions of 5'11" guy so even this listing surprises me.

Editor Rob: James, you and Piers Morgan seen the short version of Law!

And let's not forget my uncle as well.
RisingForce said on 22/Mar/17
Jude Law simply looks way taller than 5'9" so I have to assume he was joking considering the context. I'd actually at least give him more of the solid 178 cm Daniel Craig and Guy Pearce get, possibly even 179 cm unless he can be shown to wear lifts. But since we've seen Jude with a good 2-3 inches on Statham, here's a funny pic: Click Here There must be something going on with the ground there. That's why I take everything outside of full body shots and video with a grain of salt. But until someone comes up with evidence Jude wears lifts, I have to say he usually LOOKS 5'10.25"-5'10.5".
Guest66 said on 20/Mar/17
Might be sub 5'10" really, people usually never claim less than they actually are, especially men. I think he said "I'm five nine" not without a reason.

Yeah I wonder if he low balled his height, I have I hard time seeing him as anything less than a weak 5'10", and 177 cm weak 5'10" guys will almost always tell you they're 5'10" not 5'9"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Feb/17
Really just a fraction taller than Damon, Rob?
Editor Rob: I think he is taller, a fraction, arguably half inch?
Revisionist said on 20/Feb/17
Dylan O'Brien is a very recent example of a guy who shortchanged himself (he should be in the Hall of Fame) and claimed to be only "5-9/5-10," but Rob has met him and has confirmed that he's a strong 5'10!" Click Here

There are extremely rare cases when average height actors downgrade themselves (slightly). Jude's quote can be taken to mean that he's a decent 5'10" but might be edging close to 5'9" on his worst day. I think that this revised listing is very fair. He's never looked anywhere near a weak 5'9" to me. At worst, he's a strong 177cm.
Editor Rob: if a guy like Piers Morgan says "Law's a strange little cove, isn't he? (And I mean little, he's tiny).", then there's got to be something in it...maybe he gives off a taller impression to some, a shorter impression to others.
Evan said on 17/Feb/17
Not sure why this guy was ever listed at 182cm, he looks just slightly taller than RDJ in most pictures. 175cm-178cm seems about right.
Jake said on 11/Feb/17
Ian, I think they both wore lifts in the Sherlock Holmes movies, at times they appear around the same height, at times Jude Law looks a couple of inches taller.
Ian said on 2/Feb/17
He doesn't look much taller than Robert Downey JR, so it's not surprising he's only 5'9". Although he's clearly a strong 5'9"
SexualPolkaMusic said on 1/Feb/17
As a man that wakes up 177 and goes to bed 175cm, I sometimes identify as 5'10" and sometimes 5'9"(when I'm feeling more humble). I think Jude may be the in the same boat. Doesn't make sense to me that a guy who is 5'10" or 178cm at the end of the day would ever claim 5'9".
Joe said on 1/Feb/17
@HonestSlovene
Nope. A real 5'10.5 man never looks like this with other 5'10 man from this camera angle.

Click Here

If you doubt about it, then take a pic with your 5'10 friend from the same camera angle. You will notice it's not easy to be taken like this pic. I even think there is a possibility that his barefoot height is shorter than 5'10 but he just claimed shoe height.
delancey said on 29/Jan/17
Easy 5'10
HonestSlovene said on 29/Jan/17
@DefinifelyNotCC Nope, Jude LAW is just 5'10.5" and Fifty Cent about 5'11" (not 6'0") that is why they look more or less the same height. Rob previous listing was way better, he is 100% 179-180 cm (same as Brad Pitt).
Lizzy said on 11/Jan/17
Jude Law is a fine actor and a very handsome man. He is average height for a man: about 5'9".
jd said on 10/Jan/17
likely 5'9"ish (give or take half an inch) based on the listed pics where he's wearing a suit, if he's wearing a R he is 5'9" or below unless he has very short arms
DefinitelyNotCC said on 7/Jan/17
Click Here Click Here he must be lifting !
yasmin said on 28/Dec/16
Jude law is very SHORT ! 5.6
DefinitelyNotCC said on 25/Dec/16
Rob, how does he manage to look so tall ? i dont think he lifts, but he seems to favor big heeled shoes but you never know he could be using a sneaky half lift.
also a general question rob, whats the minimum height a guy has to be in order to give a tall impression with bigger than average shoes (no lifts or elevators) and a really good posture and other things that make you look and stand taller ? i think its 179
Editor Rob: you could make a case he can look more 179 than 178, I too thought he could look nearer 5ft 11 than 10, but the more I looked I think he is under it...question is if his 5ft 10 claim is a downplay or is he simply a very tall 5ft 10 who doesn't care about a fraction over it.
Darius said on 24/Dec/16
Rob, i know he looks taller onscreen but do you think there is any truth in his 5"9" claim?
By his claim of 5"9" and 5'10" i assume that he is not a fraction more than 5"10". Also i don't believe that he downgraded his height by a whole inch or more.
Editor Rob: never knew a 5ft 11 man who claimed 5ft 10 and 9...but it's of course not impossible for a 5ft 10 and change guy to drop a fraction. He might not care as much about height...might have been a bit over 5ft 10 and whoever measured him said 5ft 10.

That's always something worth considering if you are being measured - don't rely on what the nurse/doctor is reading out, check it yourself. They can make little errors now and then.
PJ said on 19/Dec/16

The Horse of FUNK said on 17/Nov/16
Wow, 5'10" now for Jude Law? This guy is all over the place lol. I remember he used to be listed 6' 1/2" on the movie site. Then he was 5'11 3/4" on here. Now he's 5'10".

Always struck me as a solid 5'11" on screen.
/shrug said on 12/Nov/16
How come for every other actor if they claim a reasonable low we say "oh they can't be any taller than this claim! Nobody would claim anything lower than that" but with Jude Law we have to assume he's taller? If the guy says he's 5'9" he's probably 5'9.9" out of bed max. There's nothing wrong with that. Care to fill me in on why, Editor Rob?
BT said on 12/Nov/16
@Rob: Jude doesn't look 1.5in shorter than JT here, with similar footwear: Click Here. But then a case could be made for Timberlake at nearer 5'11 flat. Still I think Jude hasn't taken the questions about his height all that seriously in the past, I mean... he did basically claim 5'9 at one point, and he's clearly taller than that. He could well be selling himself a bit short with the 5'10 claim as well. I think if you were to put him under the stadiometer he'd be a little over 5'10.
flagsy said on 5/Nov/16
has to be minimum 5'10.5" and more likely 5'10.75"
josh jeffords said on 15/Oct/16
Jude law always figured he was 5 11 minimum he doesnt often look short and he can come off tall.
He is a clearly lanky guy so the 5 10 call is believable as a low he is not under average.
Compared to damon he looks 5 11 also hawke he convincingly looked a weak 6 ft.
Next to downey he looked a tall 6 ft but we all know downey is short.
He did not look at all short across from a mid to aging tom hanks.
He is no less than 5 10 .5 or a fairly weak bad posture 5 11 could be rounding down.
James B said on 9/Oct/16
Same height and very similar in looks to Matt Di Angelo
Height Fan said on 3/Oct/16
Reference is being made to a 'weak' or 'strong" 5' 10"; either a person is 5' 10" or they are not, it is a matter of fact. Height is not measured by adjectives, but feet and inches or metres and centimetres.
guk said on 31/Aug/16
5ft 10 seems too low. He holds up too well against Michael Caine and 6ft 2 Richard e Grant to be a flat 5ft 10. I really think 5ft 10.5 is his absolute minimum despite what he has said (in jest)
Swish said on 10/Aug/16
I noticed im db updated his height to 5'10" too
truth said on 30/Jul/16
@Beej He looks 5'10-5'11 range mostly, never under 5'10.
Beej said on 23/Jul/16
Wow...this is a really weird one. Jude Law would be about the stockiest 5 '10 ever?? Check his general pic proportions with Sadie Frost (or by himself without lifts !). That guy will be LUCKY to hit 5 '8. Seriously...
Mat said on 13/Jul/16
@Rampage
The guy is a lift wearer, so he does care about his height. He just happens to be honest. I don't think Jude would have droped a whole half inch from his height. No one would. Maybe 0.25 of an inch...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jul/16
"Jude Law's Height: 5ft 10½in (179.07cm)"


Not buying under that and Matt Damon is most likely 5ft9½-9¾ range more than a solid 5ft10er. Saw Talented Mr. Ripley and Jude is a solid 1in taller than Matt. Also more than 2in on Downey (5ft8) in Sherlock Holmes.
Johan said on 5/Jul/16
He claims 5ft 10.

Joseph is actually around 5ft 11.
James B said on 4/Jul/16
I don't really get why my uncle who is only 5ft7 himself described Jude as a 'little fella' when he met him in London. He would have a good 3 inches on my uncle. However when I walked past him in Paddington he defo did not look tall, very average actually but I guess pavements can distort things!

Maybe my uncle was jealous because when he met Jude according to him a lot of girls were swooning for him.
Scott said on 3/Jul/16
Lol. 5' 10". He's a strong 5' 11". RDJ was wearing lifts in Sherlock Holmes, and Jude is the same height as near six foot Josep Fiennes in Enemy at the Gates.
truth said on 21/Jun/16
I still stand by my 179 cm estimate. He looks strong average or slightly over average as opposed to just plain average (177 to 178 cm).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jun/16
Rob, surely you can't have both Law and Matt Damon at the same height?
Editor Rob: you could think of Law as a legit 5ft 10 range, Damon as being a potential weaker 5ft 10.
Flyin said on 15/Jun/16
179cm. Look at the old photos with Ewan mcgregor when they were roommates before they would give a toss about Lifts etc. Also law could just be rounding down to 5'10.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jun/16
No way...
James C said on 13/Jun/16
Yeah I can see this more then 5'11" I actually wouldn't be shocked with 5'9", like he did say I'm 5'9" and then said some days I feel 5'9" and sometimes 6'0" I actually thought Matt Damon looked taller then him in more scenes then Jude law, and the same height in the talented mr ripely.
bam said on 11/Jun/16
I always got a 5'11 and change impression. I think his odd comments about height speak volumes. He's 5'10 and wishes he was 6'. Thus he wears a bit of a lift.
James B said on 10/Jun/16
Much better listing. he did not look much taller than me when I saw him in London
Francis said on 9/Jun/16
always looked 5'11 at his lowest
i had thought of him being somewhere like 181-182cm

really surprised with his claim, but i think he is not really 5'10(177.7cm) but he is something like 5'10.25 or a little above that

there is no way he is the same height as matt damon and manu bennett

plus, if he is really 5'10, then robert downey jr is way below 5'8!!!
FM said on 9/Jun/16
I think he is somewhere between 5'9 and 5'10". He claimed 5'9" which you can take as him deadpanning, but I think more of an actual statement.

Morning height for him is probably just under 5'10". Can't see him much taller than that.
Mat said on 1/Jun/16
Rob could he be 5'10.25?
Editor Rob: well it is arguable.
amaterasu said on 26/May/16
Always looked 5'10" to me, it is funny how some celebs were overlisted before they claimed their actual height. Rob is a generous guy.
jtm said on 21/May/16
he's probably 5'9.5 and it's time for rob to downgrade damon.
Dmeyer said on 20/May/16
with Pierce and and firth can look 5ft 10 flat
Heylo said on 18/May/16
Wow, I'm surprised. His small lifts really do wonder then.. I mean, he looked noticeably taller than Matt Damon in The Talented Mr Ripley and his footwear never looked suspicious..
Rob, don't you think it's possible that Matt Damon really is 177cm and Jude close to 179?
He also looked about 2cm taller than Guy Pearce on the red carpet and Guy is 178cm...
Mat said on 17/May/16
@Andrea

No man claims to be shorter than he is, unless he doesn't know or care about his height and takes a guess which is rare. So, if Jude Law looks 5'11 and specifically claims he is 5'10, then he is 5'10 and that's why he has to be downgraded. If he looks 5'11 and claims 6' his quote isn't really of importance because everyone adds inches to their height.
Arch Stanton said on 17/May/16
Piers Morgan Andrea, yeah, I find him impossably arrogant and obnoxious. He's one of the smuggest guys on TV. I do think he has a lot of issues, that's why he always goes for job which give him power. A power freak, probably a complex about size too.
Andrea said on 17/May/16
Yeah, what if Pitt came out with 5'10??? Would you give him that mark?
Editor Rob: I doubt he would...maybe Law is just being honest.
MD said on 17/May/16
I've seen only one concern listed below that I agree with, and it's that it's really hard to imagine Daniel Craig being listed taller than him. I saw the picture, below, but it's not enough evidence. I'd always argued that Craig was shorter than his listing here, probably by around half-an-inch.
CS said on 16/May/16
Fair enough Rob, he definitely is a tall 5'10 if that's indeed what he measures. I suppose his height is one of the tricky ones. I imagine this page will be receiving a fair amount of activity now due to the large and unexpected downgrade. It appears people are already talking about it.
Leung said on 16/May/16
I'm not buying that he's 5'10". 5'10.5" I think is more realistic.
Andrea said on 16/May/16
I agree, CS! Just look at Terry O'Quinn... He was listed at 6'1.75 4 years ago, he came out with 6' and he suddenly got a 6' losting... I'm not trying to attack you either, Rob, i know you do a great work with this site but at times it seems that celebrities' claims can "completely" change your mind... And this is a good thing for people who lie about their height because they can get the benefit of doubt (just because they come out with big claims) and get an optimistic listing!
Editor Rob: Tracking over 8,000 people is a big job, so it's an ongoing process. If in doubt, give benefit of doubt. If more evidence appears then changes can occur.
Mat said on 16/May/16
Has anyone of you who is still trying to defend an over 5'10 listing for Jude seen his freaking footwear?? His always in high heels and boots. His claim of 5'10, while honest, is also indicating HEIGHT AWARENESS. He is in lifts quite often, he almost admits to it with these quotes ie '' I'm only 5'10 and 6 foot is perfect so that's why I'm wearing big shoes '' is what he meant combined with his older quote.
Andrea said on 16/May/16
Lol, who is this Piers Morgan guy??? It seems he makes fun of every celebrity's height... The funny thing is that he claims to be 6'1 and he looks at least 2 inches shorter than REAL 6'1 Barack Obama... He seems a bit complexed guy.
Editor Rob: very well known in the UK, and to an extent in America...but I do think Piers posture at times is up and down, so he's got to be somewhere in 6ft range, he did say "Jude Law's a strange little cove, isn't he? (And I mean little, he's tiny)"
Dmeyer said on 16/May/16
You use to think not less than 5 ft 10,75 , wath if Pitt claims 5ft 10,25 would you change the listing
Editor Rob: Pitt, like Cruise isn't saying anything about height for years.
Dmeyer said on 15/May/16
Rob you use to think 5ft 10,75 wasnt enaugh for him wath happened
Editor Rob: he genuinely claimed 5ft 10.
Dmeyer said on 15/May/16
Even if 50 is only 5ft 11,75 there isnt solid 4cm between them
Mat said on 14/May/16
so rob, do you think his low would be in the 177-78 range or 178-79?
Editor Rob: still a decent 5ft 10
CS said on 14/May/16
Rob, tbh it's a bit disconcerting to see him downgraded a full inch. I'm not arguing with the decision, I just don't like the fact that he appeared 5'11 to you and others but he really was a full inch shorter this whole time and you didn't pick up on it until now. I don't mean to sound like I'm attacking you but this sudden revelation slightly shook my faith in this website's accuracy, which up until now was very solid. It's one thing if he was 5'11 (180 cm) and you decided he was better at 5'10.5 (179 cm) but a full inch difference (2.5 cm roughly) is a big amount to be unsure about. Again, I don't mean to sound like I'm attacking you, I just was startled by this rather large change when compared to other standard changes you make of a quarter inch or so.
Editor Rob: the heights are still guesses. I'd totally forgotten about this particular article until the other week and on looking at Law closely I think giving him his claim is reasonable.
kevin said on 13/May/16
oh man thats a big downgrade, for my taste bit too harsh, i would give him at least 179cm, flat 5ft10in seems too low

TJE said on 13/May/16
I second with AJ. Jude's been bouncing between 5'10 and 5'11 for a while now and he can look an inch shorter than Jake Gyllenhaal.
Johan said on 13/May/16
Ah finally he got downgraded. Always looks near this listing imo - 177-178cm when in normal footwear.
Arch Stanton said on 13/May/16
Rob are you sure on shorter than Daniel Craig? Seems a little hard to believe. I always thought 5 ft 11 was a little bit high for him but I thought 5'10 and change most likely. He looked a very similar height to Joseph Fiennes though, who Rob has at 5'11.5. Possible Law sometimes had a boost in his shoes?
Editor Rob: this is what he seems to be saying. Having looked at him I can see him being barefoot in that range.
CS said on 12/May/16
Wow, I did not expect him to get (such) a downgrade. I understand why he did though. Still a surprise.
AJ said on 12/May/16
While I don't disagree with sub 5'11", I think 5'10.25-10.5" better suits him.
Andrea said on 12/May/16
I haven't seen much of him but you always said he looked near enough 5'11, Rob!
He can look not that much shorter than Clive in pictures, certainly not anywhere near 4 inches but again it's not a big shocker, considering Clive never looked as tall as listed to me...
Editor Rob: maybe when piers morgan said jude law was tiny, he meant physically a thin guy and not as tall as expected.

But yes, I have thought he can pull off 5ft 11, but then maybe he is an honest 5ft 10 range...
Mat said on 12/May/16
Truth be told, this is one rare instance Jude Law has looked 5'9 : Click Here

Here he looks about the same with Craig: Click Here

Mat said on 11/May/16
Rob? what's with this new quote? did he claim that he is actually 5'10?? why don't you give him the listing?

Is he wearing a lift here?= too? Click Here
Editor Rob: it's not really a new quote, but rediscovered from when I added old comments back into the database...I'd forgotten about it myself but yes, he's there admitting to 5ft 10...
maybe at times he has a little helper in his shoe.
whocares said on 28/Mar/16
Go to the robert downey Jr. page compare their heights even if RDJ is wearing lifts jude could not possibly be more than 5'9 at best 5'9.5. Rob Kindly correct the assumption you have put on the title to a 176 cm

Arch Stanton said on 19/Mar/16
Rob didn't you like Alfie (2004) or something? I reckon that's his biggest role, though Talented Ripley the bigger film. I thought it was very good, though second half weaker than the first half. Tomei was in that too, that's why I watched it but her role fairly minor so not worth mentioning on her page.
Editor Rob: not watched it all, but yeah I sneaked it in.

I seriously think this is a fairly generous listing. I think 5'10.5" is far more accurate, maybe even 5'10.25".
Dejavu said on 9/Dec/15
I wouldn't be surprised if Jude Law is a lift wearer. He can look anywhere from 5'10 - 6'0 next to Michael Caine.
Ian said on 10/Nov/15
Good looks and pretty decent actor aswell. He's a tough one to pin point. Yes, he can look 5'9 at times but i still think he's taller than that. I've seen him listed as high as 182cm which is a bit of a stretch in my opinion. Personally, i think a weak 5'11. To me he looks 178-179cm most of the time but 180cm out of bed is very much possible.
Prince said on 4/Sep/15
Jude Law is 5'9" because he said he is 5'9". It's amazing he admits to being that height cause most people who are 5'9", famous or not famous claim to being 5'10" or even 5'11". I'll say it's possible he got measured at 5'9" and perhaps he was measured incorrectly, either because he was slouching or they didn't put the measuring level on the top of his head and rather the bottom edge. I think it's possible that he is 5'9 3/4 or even 5'10' if he wasn't measured correctly. He's at least 5'9" barefoot and at most 5'10".
James B said on 26/Jul/15
When I walked past him in london he struck me as being around my height. I am a legit 5'7 and to be fair that day I did wear thick trainers boosting me to 5.7.5-5'8 and he was hunched in posture.

Maybe my memory could be a bit hazy since that was like November 2013

I do think that 5' 10.5" (179 cm) is accurate for him. He can appear taller at times with decent footwear though.
Spirit Level said on 24/Aug/14
I can't see him above 5' 10.5". 5' 9" is undercooking him.
Guy said on 27/Jul/14
He looks like 177-178

He certainly doesn't look under 5'11 there, but is he wearing lifts though?
Sean said on 24/Apr/14
@Maio, I just saw that for the first time and thought that was kind of funny. Also when it was said that even with lifts, making Hawke two inches taller would be "impossible."
viennese said on 24/Apr/14
about 2 years ago he was shooting a movie called "360" in vienna, where i met him and his cast in a less crowded bar(on the top floor of a hotel) around 11 pm. i didn't pay much attention to him, but at one point he walked right past me and seemed to be just a smidge taller than me. im usually about 5'10.25 late in the evening. he was wearing regular dress shoes, i was in converse. to cut a long story short: probably around 5'10.5-75

He is the same high of Matt Damon...178

Mm in g imaging them on the DVD cover of Enemy Fiennes actually looks easily an inch taller than Law. IN the film I didn't think he looked taller than Jude at all although granted his posture wasn't always great and he was often arms around people and leaning talking to people. I don't think you could really argue under 5'10 anyway. He's taller than you think.


He did not strike me as looking tall when i saw him in London just average sized and I am only 5'7 range.

However he was hunching down and wearing a hat. Probably did not want to get recognised.
leonari said on 1/Apr/14
Maybe he wears Lifts but Downey is the king of LIFTS. He doesn't mind that its obvious... He could afford the best footwear (like Don's) but he prefers to stuff his shoes with the absolute max lift possible so that anybody looking at his shoes notices that something weird is going on. Love Downey- one of my favorite actors of all time but his lifted shoes are pathetic

Law looked a pretty similar height to Joseph Fiennes and thought he looked slightly taller if anything but they were about level in their scenes together. Rob has Fiennes at 5'11,5!
Arch Stanton said on 1/Apr/14
Doubt it Jamie. Jude looked a bit taller than Joseph Fiennes in Enemy at the Gates.
jamieorr4 said on 1/Apr/14
i honestly think 5ft9 is probably true he doesn't look much tall than Robert downey jr who i think is between 5ft6 and 5ft7 and also jude does wear lifts
Arch Stanton said on 14/Feb/14
He does seem to edge out Nicole Kidman in Cold Mountain but it might be camera angles I don't know.
truth said on 11/Feb/14
179cm
rancher said on 3/Feb/14
listing seems accurate but more or less in the 5-10 range

imo he comes off very average height, almost short in his films for whatever reason

180 is definitely more likely than 175 though, Click Here with Daniel Craig he looks about this.

He's closer to the camera.

Fully agree on your label "chameleon of heights" Rob. Jude Law is one of the very few celeb guys I which I'm actually convinced of what he is. In recent photos he really seems 5'9 range, but then in other photos he can look easily 5'11", and it's the same in his films. In the talented Mr. Ripley I think you can rule out him being as low as 5'9 flat, but anything from 177-182 he can look at times!!

For instance see him with 5'9.5" Ewan Mcgregor

You could argue anything from 176 to 182 in those two photos alone. Is he a lift wearer? I doubt it, he tends to wear campus like sneakers a lot. His height is all over the place though...
James said on 7/Jan/14
Well rob he did not look much bigger than 5'9 when I walked past him Paddington.


Guess pavement and his build made him seem smaller?
[Editor Rob: it's a helluva lot harder judging height out and about on the street. I'd be very surprised if he measured around that mark.]
Arthur said on 5/Jan/14
I don't get it Rob. If Jude said he's 5'9'', why would you say he's 5'11'' ???
[Editor Rob: I think he was trying a bit of humour, I don't think he looks just 5ft 9]
cole said on 26/Dec/13
@Editor Rob: I agree; can't see him as a flat 5'9. I'm just saying proportionally he doesn't strike me as your average 5'11 flat guy - but more like a 5'9ish guy (a very strong 5'9, 177 cm+). But I understand proportions doesn't tell the whole story. For example I am 5'10.75 and a bunch of my 5'9ish friends have legs just as long as mine, or a tad bit longer even - whilst my torso is as long as my 6'1.5 friend's, and my arms are even longer than his...

Back to Jude Law... I take it you wouldn't argue 178 or slightly less as a possibility for Jude then?

Either way I think the 5'11 is a bit generous. 178 cm range - maybe that's his low, and that he generally walks about 179 and wakes around 180?

5'10.5 or 5'10.75 I would say is fair for him. Maybe put him at 5'10.75 to begin with?
cole said on 24/Dec/13
I could actually see him telling the truth (partly) with his 5'9 claim - when you see him on his own, he has the proportions of a guy around that height. He looks around the 6ft mark only in his lifts. I'm reading "I am 5'9 (or so), but if I want to appear taller (like 6ft range), I have the tools to do so" in his quote in Allure. I don't think he's a flat 5'9 though - 177/178 cm range seems probable. 179 cm might be possible, but a strong 180 cm (5'11 = 180,3 cm) - I just can't see that as his barefoot height.

What do you say Rob? Time for a downgrade? Anywhere between 177 and 179 cm will do.
[Editor Rob: 179 is a possibility, but I can't see him as 5ft 9]
James said on 2/Dec/13
Clive Owen 6'1.5 (187cm)
Jude Law 5'10.5 (179cm)
Realist said on 2/Dec/13
About 3 to 3.5 inches less than Clive Owen who is 186-188, 5'10.5 is correct.
James said on 29/Nov/13
Rob I was near primrose hill in London yesterday and i walked past jude law.

Honestly he looked a little shorter than 5'11 from my perspective. I did have on big shoes but do you a weak 5'10 could be on the cards?

What do you think rob maybe a shade less than 5'11 for law?
[Editor Rob: a weak 5ft 11 is possible for him yeah]
Dejavu said on 5/Nov/13
I agree with lelman that he is a left wearer. He can look 5'10 range to a good 6'0.
Louis said on 4/Nov/13
Rob, what do you think about this photo? it's weird, on every other photo jude look taller
jlm is leaning a little bit, but does angle favours him a lot?

JJ said on 24/Oct/13
They say 6'1 in Gattaca, albeit he is in a wheelchair...
lelman said on 17/Oct/13
Clearly a big lift/elevator man. Can look anywhere from 5'9"/5'10" to 6'1"/6'2", just look at Chachi's photos. Not to mention the photo with Guy Ritche and Downie Jr, posted below.
jordydecke said on 16/Oct/13
Strong 5'9 no more, no less.
Chachi said on 1/Oct/13
Somehow Jude is able to go from this: Click Here

to this: Click Here

Doesn't make much sense, seeing as most people believe Craig is a smidge under 5'10. Jude clearly wears special shoes for special occasions.
FM said on 7/Sep/13
Yves, I saw that movie also - I think it's possible he could have had lifts throughout the movie. Check out the premiere picture with them. Pretty close in height, unless you think Jude is wearing lifts.

Click Here

To me he looks like he could be any from 5'9" to 6', as he said.

Flight attendant alert : 5'11- 6'00. Carried him on a flight. Taller than one would expect.

Rob, I know you've seen this pic, but what do you think about it:

Click Here

You have Daniel Craig listed as 5'10.25, and looks like he has a inch and some change on Jude Law- making his 5'9" claim seem accurate. They both are in normal shoes, no heel advantage to either one. And the ground looks level to me.
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't use a shot like that to compare them...you'd be better with one were they are standing together on flat ground, that's a pavement and they are on the move.]
cole said on 2/Aug/13
Rob. The people who claim to have met Jude in the description, Steve on the airport, and Noodles, is that legit or have you just picked any random comments from the comment-section?
[Editor Rob: either comment/email, but they are like any comment really so I think better removing them from the description these days.]

Holy mother of lifts! Click Here
[Editor Rob: maybe Downey is selling Jude some spare elevators :)]

Haha! Jeez I really can't understand this whole lift-thing with some of these celebs. I mean, when it gets to this (what Jude is wearing in that pic), it's just getting rediculous. However tall Jude really is, be it 5'9, 5'10 or 5'11, he's by no means a manlet that needs to wear that kind of footwear to look above average height. Unless he likes wearing high heels... I'd might see someone about that!

Btw. what do you think about Guy Ritchie's stature? Commonly listed 5'11. Not quite sure about that one.
[Editor Rob: guy could be somewhere in 5ft 10 range]
Balrog said on 2/Aug/13
Like I said before I think he claimed his real height and admitted that he wears funny shoes "If I'm feeling tall I say 6 feet (with my lifts and special shoes on)"
