I would still give Leo an extra 1/2 inch as a present for admitting he wore lifts/period shoes. Not many celebs are honest or secure enough to admit that.
Lucas_6' said on 11/Jul/07
Leo looks certainly taller than 5'11 in this pic with Glenn !! i'd say 6'1 and that's an sbsolute minimum. take a look at the pic with Glenn and Don Mattingly, a legit 5'11, the difference is obvious.
Franco said on 11/Jul/07
Tom Hanks is starting to lose a bit of height at least from his latest pictures he looks a bit older and definetely lost 1cm at the very least, it shows.

LEO is 180cm no more no less, add shoes or lifts and watch his grow.
Melvin said on 10/Jul/07
I can never figure out Hanks. He is more elusive than Stallone.
dmeyer said on 9/Jul/07
at the very end of catch me leo looks 1 cm taller than hanks
17,181 said on 9/Jul/07
Tom Hanks is 6ft right? Leo looked 5'11.75 or just a smidge smaller than 6ft Tom. Now if he in fact wore 1.25 inch lifts there to stay afloat with Hanks,which that guy claimed was a fact,then 5'10.5 is correct.But since there's no real evidence to that lift claim in thatm ovie,we can't actually use that to downgrade him.
17,181 said on 9/Jul/07
those are the typical film lifts,I'm sure there are bigger ones,that you can wear,though yeah,he looks 5'11 easy most of the time.
dmeyer said on 8/Jul/07
he dose look 6 ft 0.5 in with glenn so elevators give 1.25 so 5'11.25 no less
dmeyer said on 8/Jul/07
the me leo is in his barefoot 3 cm taller than gisele he alwais looks taller than her leo is no less than 181 cm
17,181 said on 8/Jul/07
Leo looks 5'10.5 next ot Spielberg.and the guy from the public relations,who has seen him hundreds of times and factually wearing 1.25 in lifts in CMIYC,then yeah,less than 5'11,since he was very close to 6ft-6'0.5 Tom Hanks but not quite
17,181 said on 8/Jul/07
why in the hell would she lie,especially making him only 1 inch logic at all.Like she really needs to make him smaller to make herself look taller.I mena,she herself looks smaller next to him if hes only 5'10.5,so obviously she doesnt care about making herself taller.
17,181 said on 8/Jul/07
exactly Timber,seems that his lifts are making him huge favors and asl ong as hes wearing them,I believe he'll never be less than 5'11.5.
glenn said on 8/Jul/07
when did she say he was 5-10.5?.
timber said on 7/Jul/07
If Gisele herself said Leo is 5-10.5", and she is listed at 5-10.5", why is he listed at 5 ft 11.5 in? why would she say, "My ideal man has to be taller than me" if he was, in fact, taller?
Jack Daniels said on 7/Jul/07
Remember that Gisele said that he's 5'10.5". It's accurate. If she didn't lie and if she measured him in the evening, he's probably 180 or 181 cm in the morning...
Franco said on 6/Jul/07
Sure he had some growth spurts late but not 5'9 to 6'0 , what now you go 4 inches late in your life? while not impossible for people with hormone problems, i just cant see someone in good health like LEO to be so.

let me put it like this.....

LEO morning = 182cm , LEO evening = 180-181cm , LEO Night = 179cm - 180cm

i say the height he really looks it most of the time is 180cm flat
17,181 said on 6/Jul/07
speaking od Dicaprio,Please watch the trailer for his upcoming film the 11th hour
Click Here - it's in the right top corner.
17,181 said on 6/Jul/07
too bad mofo doesn't have anything to prove with that Leo was 5'9-5'10.The lowest I believe for Leo is 5'10.5 and if hes taht,he was probably with loose posture,thus losing an inch and appearing 5'9.5 . But Glenn has seen Leo appear 5'10 next to a 5'11 guy,so that's not out of the question.Though in the pic he looks a strong 5'11(lifts aside)
17,181 said on 6/Jul/07
why would a 19+ age be a "really really late",My uncle grew about 2cm every year up to 25. 19 is just a kid,nothing unusual at all.
dmeyer said on 6/Jul/07
i met leo in low cut sneakers he is nothing under 180 cm ankely 181 182
Random Person said on 6/Jul/07
If he's 19 in the latter photo, looking 5'9-ish, he must have had a really really late growth spurt to reach his height in the former photo.
HelloKitty said on 18/Oct/06
Leo is a fox and he does not wear lifts like Stallone or Cruise! He looks tall in all his movies! 5'11 - 6'0 is Leo's height barefoot, face it guys he's just tall and gorgeous!!
Glenn said on 16/Oct/06
Actually one girl I know said real short.
Glenn said on 16/Oct/06
I havnt seen him in 10 years.I now hear 5-11 to 6-1 for this guy,depending on who I ask.he was 5-10 here.
Bruce said on 16/Oct/06
Did decaprio grow since this photo? He now looks taller than this for sure
dmeyer said on 16/Oct/06
hounsou looked 189 when i met him
Ed said on 14/Oct/06
I agree dmeyer he must have had some serious lifts in Gangs of New York, and the same for the upcoming Blood Diamond. In the trailer he looks almost the same height as the 6ft3 Hounsou, who I saw in a restaurant a year ago, and though I couldn't get up close to him I'd say he was at least between 6ft2 and 6ft3.
dmeyer said on 12/Oct/06
in moviehe wears lifts because he looks similar height with 188 reily and 191 hounsou so in good lift he is 6'1
dmeyer said on 9/Oct/06
he looked only 3 cm taller than damon in the movie also damon looked barely 2 inches on walberg when alec looked about 5 inches taller than whalberg ot 4.5 inches taller alec might be a true 6 footer
dmeyer said on 5/Oct/06
imdb is precise sometimes like leo 5'11 scott 5'11 cruise 5'7 anyway when people are 181 they eiter say 5'11 or 5'11.5
dmeyer said on 4/Oct/06
dicaprio is between 180 and 183 barefoot
dmeyer said on 4/Oct/06
bundchen mean someone realy taller than her he had only 1 inch on her i use to have a girlfriend who wa 5'11 i was about 0.5 taller than her but she still think i was short those 5'11 girls they want like 6'2 or 6'3
dmeyer said on 4/Oct/06
in the movie catch me he looked the same height than hanks possibly small lift since the height differance is not mush between them i think hanks look 3 cm taller because of his military posture but the differance might be only 2 cm it is funny because i worked with hanks on terminal and my friends on the set told me that i was the same height as hanks within 1 or 2 cm so he is about 6feet but then dicaprio came on the set and they told me he was way taller than me and hanks like 6'1 6'2 i guess because he is thin dicaprio can look 6'1" in lifts also hanks looks 6'1 in pics because of posture so like 183 183.5 barefoot
dmeyer said on 3/Oct/06
it make sens sice my best friend is about 5'11 and met dicaprio 6 years ago like three times and told me leo wasnt tlaller than him
dmeyer said on 3/Oct/06
that might be it since he looked about 1 inches less then hanks so 181 exept if damon start wearing lifts he might be my height since at 2 pm i am about 181 but i just say 5'11 it make more sens
Pik said on 2/Oct/06
I will post this picture again, because it shows that the height difference between Damon and DiCaprio is not even an inch (0.5 - 0.75 in my eyes), if they are both in one inch dress shoes, of course. If Damon is 5'10, DiCaprio is 5'11 cm max. Actually, the difference between those two is very similar to the one we've seen on pictures with probably 5'10 Gisele Bundchen. My opinion is that DiCaprio is 5'11 at best. What's your's Rob ?
Click Here

[Editor Rob: yes, true 180cm is what he appears from most of those shots, I think frank2 gave him 'same height' as the majority of pics he looks in this range, maybe I'll give him Brad's old mantle, one of the 181ers!

on the surface looking to have normal looking shoes, but some of those shots are slightly high]
Pik said on 2/Oct/06
Rob, what happened to a comment I posted here yesterday ?

[Editor Rob: submit it again, might have been there was a similar link on damon thread]

"Glenn says on 30/Aug/06
Wrong Dmeyer.I worked on that set.he was 5-10."

So he grew two inches in his late teens? Seems unlikely.
Anonymous said on 29/Sep/06
matt damon looks close in height with leo at the premiere but there is about 4.5 inches between him and and affleck 11 cm
Matt said on 27/Sep/06
I'm not sure what all of the height experts will think, but in this picture it appears that Mick Jagger is taller than DiCaprio: Click Here
MOF said on 18/Sep/06
DiCaprio is looking about an inch smaller than the confirmed 182-183cm Henry Thomas. So 180cm is becoming much more likely.
The Judge said on 16/Sep/06
I heard somewhere that he grows a lot during this boy's life shooting...I always red 5'11" about him in magazines, and i believe it cause Christopher Walken is an inch taller in Catch me if you can..
Marc said on 1/Sep/06
Here's Leo with 6'0" Tom Hanks and 5'7.5" Steven Speilberg. I'd say 5'11 at most and this is recent. Click Here
Josh said on 31/Aug/06
Why is he listed as 182cm , Cristopher Walken (183cm)had a solid inch on him in Catch Me If U can its obvious hes no more than 5'11 (180cm)I wouldnt be surprised if hes 5'10.
Glenn said on 30/Aug/06
Wrong Dmeyer.I worked on that set.he was 5-10.
DMeyer said on 29/Aug/06
leo is about 182 and can look 185 in lifts

leo has grown alot he looked 5 foot 6 in dthe deniro movie he was 17
DMeyer said on 29/Aug/06
equal height with gisele but she has 3 inches heels
Phil said on 15/Aug/06
I think Leo is about 5ft 11inc minimum and up to 6ft but i can't see how the imdb has him at 6'1.
dmeyer said on 11/Aug/06
leo can look from 180 to 185
Marc said on 6/Aug/06
Jordan: Girls stop puberty around 18 (exceptions being "late bloomers"), but men can continually grow until their around 26 years old, though many reach their full height at around 18. I just turned 17, but I'm still growing.
Jordan said on 5/Aug/06
Marc i'm 17 and dont know if I stopped growing--how old are you and do you know when males stope growing???
Marc said on 3/Aug/06
Since roughly 6 months ago, I have grown an inch. It is highly possible that since Glenn's photo, Leo has grown. I'd put him at a 5'11" barefoot. With dress shoes, he is probably about 6' 0.5", with about 2 and 1/2 inches on Gisele Bundchen in the following photo. Supposing she's wearing 4 - 5 inch heels (bringing her up about 2 inches taller, so 6' even), Leo has about 1/2 and inch on her. I took a girl to prom who was 5' 8", and in dress shoes I was 6' so, I had about 1 inch over her (she was wearing 5 inch heels, so she was about 5'11). I still think Leo is 5'11". Click Here
AA said on 1/Aug/06
Gisele Bundchen is 5' 10", I'm SURE. When she was in Brazil (where I live) signing autographs, I asked her to sign my magazine with her picture on the cover. I was wearing shoes, so I was about 6' 1" and she was at least 1 inch shorter. I looked at her feet and her heels wasn't less than 2 inches! She is for sure 5' 10". And Leonardo DiCaprio is no more than 5' 11" to me. In "The Beach" he looked 5' 10". On Titanic he sometimes can look 6' 1", but in other scenes he was more like a 5' 11", maybe 6'. In Aviator, he does look pretty tall in some parts... but not quite THAT tall! If I'm actually wrong, I give him 5' 11.25" TOPS!!!
Adriana said on 30/Jul/06
First of all, you should take that silly quote attributed to Gisele. It's from the UK tabloid the Sun which should tell you something. Second, he's at least as tall as her and I think actually an inch taller judging from many photos I've seen of them walking side by side wear they are both barefooted or wearing flats. Third, if she thought that way, why did she date him for 5 years - did it take her that long to figure out he was shorter than her,LOL. Plus, she's supposedly dated Kelly Slater who is no more than 5 foot 9. Now that's short. From photos I've also seen of Leo standing next to Jeremy Irons who he was in the man in the iron mask, Leo is 6'.

Equal height? Gisele Bundchen (5'11")

Click Here
Marc said on 20/Jul/06
Gisele Bundchen is 5'10" (normal for a female model). Here is her in flat soled sneakers with Leo in sneakers as well. Though she has her head facing down, one can tel they are around the same height, separated by merely an inch or so. I reckon he's about 5'11". Click Here
Romina said on 15/Jul/06
I`ve seen leo in person & I`m tellin ya that he`s very tall & HE`S AN AMAZING MAN!!!!!!
Not only he is incredibly handsome but also he`s a brilliant actor. I have 2 say that his performance in THE AVIATOR took my breath away!!!!!!!!
AA said on 8/Jul/06
This guy is no more than 5ft11, I'd say... I'm watching "The Beach" right now and he looks about 5ft10-10.5... maybe 181cm???
trueheight said on 25/Jun/06
just an observation, if Depp is 5'9; Leo was still growing at the time of Gilbert Grape; you can see he's shorter than Depp in shots completely early in production and taller in ones late. Depp wears his usualy boots and Dicaprio is seen in sneakers; his max height in this film seems to be spot on at 5'10.5. of course, thers a good chance he grew even more after production was completed as he still looked like a 'child' in that film
Anonymous said on 6/Jun/06
DiCaprio surely grew several inches since he was 20 years old so This Boy's Life or What's Eating Gilbert Grape are not reliable indicators of his height
Someone asked how normal is that.
More normal than you may think, boys grow till they're 25-26
It means that some of them may be 6 feet when they're 11 and stop growing while other may be 5'6" till they're 21 and be 6'2" when they're 27 and as long as it occurs in this age range it is not a disfunction just a very normal genetical predisposition. When it is a disfunction it's a 23 year old who is 4'1" feet or a 35 years old who is 6'7" feet and still growing 4 inches a year: these are disfunctions!
My father grew 9 inches when he was 23 and so all his brothers
It's not even delayed puberty since puberty may occur anywhere between 8 and 18 years old and the body still grows after puberty comes
The body grows till 25-26 because the body may release the testosterone that will convert cartilage into bone tissue either all at once causing huge growth spurts or slowly and evenly. Besides even and slow growth is healthier than major growth spurts that are linked with the hormones in the milk and meat we eat and have adverse effects concerning bone density and cancer
Anonymous said on 17/May/06
in that pic he didnt finish growing since he claims 6'1" he gotta be close to 6' so 5'11.5" is a good guess but he looks 6'1 sometimes maybe with elevators on
Josh said on 18/Apr/06
Its clear that hes in the 5'10 5'11 range the Editor should downgrade him to
5'11 .
Clive said on 3/Apr/06
I'm really surprised !!! He doesn't look more than 5'11, I'd even say he looks 5'10 on this photo ! Is anybody got some others pictures to have another perspective ?
Frank2 said on 2/Apr/06
In Titanic he was abount an inch shorter than 6' Billy Zane and three inches shorter than 6'2" David Warner. I've seen all three actors and can say without reservation that DiCaprio is my height or 5'11, Zane is an inch taller or 6' and David Warner who I had the opportunity to meet and talk with when he was shopping at a Century City bookstore is 6'2". DiCaprio doesn't look like he weighs more than about 150 lbs soaking wet.
chris said on 1/Apr/06
I don't think that he is 182cm tall. Looks more 178-180cm (5'10-5'11).
Marc said on 1/Apr/06
My sister was in the movie "The Departed" as a school girl. She says that he is probably 6'
Glenn said on 28/Mar/06
He's a tricky guy.he can look 5-11 or on rare occasion, 6-1.
bismarck said on 27/Mar/06
I think believe it or not,that in the movie "The Basketball Diaries" he appeared to be atleast 6'0"...and in titanic he seemed shorter.It's all in the type of shoes he wears and the clothes,i'm 17 and i'm 5'10" and when i was 15 i looked taller than 5'10" sometimes because of the clothes and shoes
Frank2 said on 8/Mar/06
By the way, Scorsese is only 5'3".
funkmonk said on 7/Mar/06
nope he is more than half an inch shorter than Day Lewis in those pictures.

Dicaprio and 6'4"Liam Neeson

Dicaprio and 6'1.5" Daniel Day Lewis

These photos show he's at least 6'1"

im soo happy he is taller than me. i am 5'9 1/2......thats tall for a girl, i cant believe it, i never thought he was as tall. = )
Glenn said on 4/Mar/06
yes,he does look 6-1 latetly.but looks 5-11 at times too.
Anonymous said on 4/Mar/06
He's AT LEAST 6'1". In a photo in the Boston Globe last year, Leo towered over Matt Damon, and he's definately taller than Billy Zane. Also, in Gangs of New York, he looks almost as tall as Daniel Day Lewis.
Frank2 said on 3/Mar/06
Leonardo is roughly my height which is five feet eleven. In person he looks even younger than he does on the screen. Casting him as six foot four Howard Hughes was just plain silly! And besides not having the required inches he didn't have the acting ability to pull it off. Dreadfully-made film full of gross inaccuracies.
Tyler said on 24/Feb/06
A recent picture of him he was atleast 2 inches taller than Damon, from next movie.
CelebHeights Editor said on 20/Feb/06
December 2004, Scotsman interview: "He is taller and rangier than he looks on screen - he is almost six foot"
Natalie said on 13/Feb/06
Yeah I agree with you Glenn, he seems to be at least 6 feet, maybe even 6'1". I think that he had a late growth spurt.
Glenn said on 11/Feb/06
I saw a still from his new movie with walhberg and leo looks 6-1!

He looked slightly taller than Gisele, and she is 5'11. 5'11.5 to 6' is believable.

any evidents that his 182cm tall??? Coz all the while he looks more like a range of 178-180cm tall to me...and my friends while in his movies..

In The Beach He looked to be in the 5-11 range he was always wearing sandals or barefoot, in that pic with glenn he looks to be in the 5-10.5 5-11 range now a days he doesn
Anonymous said on 26/Jan/06
In What's Eating Gilbert Grape, he looked to be the same height as the 5`10 Johnny Depp maybe half an inch taller so he stands at 5`10.5 Also hs was a lot shorter than the 6`0 Tom Hanks in Catch Me If You Can so I think 5`10.5 is the right height for him.
Anonymous said on 25/Jan/06
its called delayed puberty people. ididnt have much of a growth spurt til i turned 18..went from 5'5 to 5'10 in 1.5 years. now im 23 and just finished growing and stand 5'11.5. i also have a slender body and a young face. when i stand next to broad 6 footers i appear a lot shorter for some reason
Brett said on 25/Jan/06
Dicaprio more then likely grew till a late age, as at age 18 his voice hadnt evenbroken and he looked 13 years old. I think he perhaps had some pubescent disfunction as he really was a late bloomer. He looks like his struggling with 5'10 in that photo with Glenn.
Anonymous said on 16/Jan/06
how old were you in 1993 Glen (concerning this pic. with Leo.DiCap.)?
Jason said on 16/Jan/06
I don't think it's that weird. Some guys don't stop growing until their mid 20s even.
bismarck said on 15/Jan/06
it's weird that he grew later than most men....i'd say in this picture he's about 5'10" and when he was 22 in titanic he was atleast 5'11" perhaps 6'0"...if he stands straighter he's a good inch in a half or 2 taller than glenn
Danimal said on 15/Jan/06
I stopped growing at 18. I reached a height of 178cm and now at 28, I'm 176. Go figure!
Glenn said on 15/Jan/06
some girl I know did say whenever she runs into him he looks short.I was perplexed.5-11 to me isnt short.5-9 on down is to me.but hey,you never know,maybe he's a lift guy.
d said on 14/Jan/06
male growth spurts are usually in the 15-17 range from what i've witnessed (and looked up). And i only added another inch, over 1 year, after i petered off at 17. You can't make rules about averages or normalities, but when sombody bends the "rules," especially in an image oriented position like his, it makes you wonder.

The guy is honestly one of the few guys who fooled me on height, i would have guess him at 5'9-5'10 just looking at him proportionately. he can be whatever height he is, but how hard is it to add even an extra inch to your shoes? I would if i were in his world.

I can pull off a 5'10 on a good morning and everywhere i go, most guys are taller than me, and a good whack of heeled females are too. Probably way more in actress/model land. Wouldn't sit well with an slightly more than average A list actor having everyone looking "down" on him.
175cm16andgrowing said on 14/Jan/06
And I wouldn't be surprised if he had a growth spurt somewhen later. Think about it, I'm also not normal. Standing 5'2'' or 5'1'' when I was 12, the next year 5'4''- 5'5''... I didn't grow a lot, with 15 I was 2'6 and 5'7'', now I'm nearly 17 and 5'9''. I'm sure I'll cut the 5'11'' ... umm... leo already has :D. People can stop growing when they're 12 or 25.
dmeyer said on 13/Jan/06
if you watch a movie with leo and deniro from 1993 he was 18 years old and he looked 5'6" near deniro this guy has gain height very late even after 20
d said on 12/Jan/06
i'm surprised more people aren't calling this guy out for lifts. He grew 1.5" after 19? How common is that?
Glenn said on 12/Jan/06
yeah,but in 1992 everyone looked big to me for some strange its possible arnold is shorter than 6-2.everyone was larger tha life cause I was only 2 years in the business and was ultra exited to meet celebs.
Jason said on 12/Jan/06
I think he does look 5'11'' considering he's leaning a little and tilting his head.
dmeyer said on 12/Jan/06
in this pic he is 5'10 but he could have grow 1.5" after 19
Monty said on 12/Jan/06
Leo does look 5'10 max there. Is it possible he had a very late 2 inch growth spurt?

[Editor Rob: he was bigger from 16-18 it can be seen he grew....aged 19 yes possible he got a little more height]
CoolJ said on 12/Jan/06
Jason: Are you serious?? He looks no bigger than 5'10 there.
Jason said on 12/Jan/06
Wow, that's suprising about Arnold, Glenn. You reckon he might have been wearing suspect footware the times you've seen him?

I guessed Leonardo was about 5'11 1/2''. He looks more 5'11'' next to you.
Glenn said on 11/Jan/06
leo was also 1993.arnold in 1992.arnold always looked 6-2 to me.leo always looked 5-11 to me.
Jason said on 11/Jan/06
Glenn, don't forget to tell us how tall Arnie was when you post your pic of you with Leo!! :)

[Editor Rob: I'll put the Leo pic up soon, but hopefully Glenn can remember what year it was taken.]
gotxo said on 11/Jan/06
It's curious the comments for him in his badge. I remember an interview by spanish journalist for "EL PAIS", she described him like this:
"Taller than you'd imagined, 180cm or so. Striking for the baby appearance you should give him. But it is more noticeable than his height his weight, in fact he's a bit overweighted" I'm not quoting but the translation should roughly like this interview was made near the time the film "the beach" was shown in Spain.
Glenn said on 11/Jan/06
6 feet max.5-11 proof is coming.
dmeyer said on 10/Jan/06
tyler you right i dont think leo is less then 6'
Tyler said on 9/Jan/06
Leonardo is atleast 6, id say 6,1. Gisele dumping him for his height thats a joke, look at their pictures from the oscars, he is taller than her, and she has on Heels.
TheMan said on 7/Jan/06
IMO clearly not over 5,10
dmeyer said on 7/Jan/06
he looks between 5'11 and 6'1"
175cm16andgrowing said on 7/Jan/06
5'11'' should be correct, but perhaps he's really 6'... he can look anywhere from 5'10'' to 6'1''.
Anonymous said on 7/Jan/06
He doesn't really look that tall, next to David Warner (187cm) and Billy Zane (183-4cm) in Titanic he looks barely 5'11...
MHouillon said on 2/Jan/06
He is more than 1 inch shorter than 6'0.5" Tom Hanks. 5'11" seems to be realistic

He is about 5'11. Look at him in Titanic, Kate Winslet is about 5'7 and he wasn't that much taller than her.
TJ said on 27/Dec/05
Cendrin, Prince Charles' official height was 5'10 as a young man. If anything, he's a little shorter than that now.
cendrin rovini said on 26/Dec/05
It's really hard to tell, in the Basketball movie he looked really tall, at least like a solid 6 foot dude, just watched that great movie yesterday. He was at least one inch taller than Prince Charles who's 5' 11'' as far as I know. Greetz from Germany!
Leo is Tall! said on 8/Dec/05
Dicaprio is 6'1" or at least 6'05". Check these photos with Daniel Day Lewis who is 6'1.5", Leo looks about half an inch shorter.,0.jpg

your mother usually sees you at home, when you are with no footwear. and i bet she didnt see dicaprio barefoot... you must be closer to his height
Antonio said on 21/Nov/05
Yep, you guys are right, he's 5ft 11.5in. My mother told me she saw Leo on the subway about two weeks ago, she saw him come in the subway car and saw him take a seat in front of her. Now I'm 5'9" (177cm), she told me he was about two inches taller than me. She wasn't sure that was him. But today I found out that it really was him. He was all over papers (newspapers), with the same hat and glasses.
cendrin rovini said on 19/Nov/05
Yeah, that's true, brother. In Gilbert Grape he was much smaller than Johnny Depp who's maybe just 5 7. But he was already 18, wasn't he? No he's 6 feet, some guys really can't complain. I stopped growing 10 years sooner than this guy, greetz to ya all.
Brett said on 17/Nov/05
I saw a film where Leo was like 18 years old, but I thought he was 13-14 as he looked like a kid, and his voice hadnt broken, I dont know if he went through puberty late or had an actual but he grew till like the age of 25 odd haha, and still looked like a 16-17 year old at this age.
cendrin rovini said on 8/Nov/05
I think that Brad Pitt is about 184cm and Leonardo is 181cm. After giving so much mental energy in that stuff. Greetz from germany, it's a nightmare with heightism here.
Anonymous said on 7/Nov/05
Im confused...someone posted a picture with Leo and Brad Pitt and Brad Pitt looked signficantly taller yet Leo is listed as being 1/4 of an inch taller than Pitt on this site? How does that add up?
absent said on 5/Nov/05
He wasnt done growing in Gilbert Grape.
cendrin rovini said on 5/Nov/05
hi freaks, i'm from GERMANY! I remember seeing this guy in the movie with johnny depp, can't quite remember the name... He was smaller than johnny, he truly grew like made in an age when I stopped it for more than 5 years those celebs have magical powers!
dmeyer said on 31/Oct/05
hey rob i have noticed something interesting in the movie the boys life from 1993 dicaprio is born in 1974 that would make him 18 or 19 years old he looked about 3 inches shorter than deniro that would make him at best 5'6 5'7 it means he have grown 6" in 3 years i was 5'6 at 16 years old at 17 iwas 5'10 and then 6 feet tall at 20 years old i dont know how he did to take 6" in two years
Anonymous said on 21/Oct/05
from the pic of him and pitt brad has about 2-3 cm on him.i reckon hes 5'10-5'11.btw charles is 5'9 not 6' by a long way
Cyclops said on 7/Oct/05
He, himself, has said that he's 6 ft.
Anonymous said on 26/Sep/05
182 is right but he can make himself look taller because in cath me if you can he looks the same as tom and in aviator he looks the same as john riley and looks the same as gisele when she wear 3 inches hells so he can look 6 feet 1 inch sometimes
CelebHeights Editor said on 1/Sep/05
Talk Magazine 2000, "He is taller (six feet) and more muscular (175 pounds)than I imagined"
CelebHeights Editor said on 24/Aug/05
From "I've seen him before in person, Id' say he's about 6 feet or 6'1". Way taller than 5'6". But of course it's hard to say judging it that way. I'm 6'2" and he wasn't as tall as me, but anyway, he's around 6 feet tall for sure"
CelebHeights Editor said on 21/Aug/05
From author Randy Barnett on meeting some celebs: "Most of the males actors are much smaller, not just shorter, than you expect--especially Banderas--except DiCaprio who you'd expect to be small, but is really normal size and height. Alex Baldwin is a bit bulky of course, and Pierce Brosnan is a remarkably big guy, who is not shy about wearing gray stubble. The tallest was probably Tim Robbins, but taller than you'd expect were Tom Hanks and Kevin Spacey. Not surprisingly on the tall side were Ted Turner, Donald Trump, Will Smith, Bruce Dern, and Clint Eastwood."

you guys are right i have a friend who is 183 cm who met dicaprio in paris and he told me that dicaprio was barely 5 11 maybe only 179
dmeyer said on 3/Aug/05
i met tom hanks a few times and he is no taller than 184 cm so dicaprio is about 181 cm i alwais thaught he was aleast 185 cm but with 3'' heels he can look 187 cm
jen said on 27/Jul/05
He is 6ft 1in trust me i've seen him a few times!
dmeyer said on 24/Jul/05
i am 182 cm i met ll cool j and he was 187 cm but in the picture we look the same pictures is not a good way to judge height i have great posture and even that i am only 182 i can loock up to 186 cm in pictures
dmeyer said on 24/Jul/05
hey kevin i met zane he is about 184 cm but in this picture he looks 5 cm shorter but i am steel sure that leo is 183 185 cm he dosnt look mush shorter than 189 cm irons in man in the iron mask a couple friend of mine met leo and told me that he was aleast 185 cm ia 11 1/2 shoes and i am 5'11 3/4'' also leo look very close to 188 cm john c reily
Michael said on 19/Jul/05
Leo's exact height is 5-11 1/2 barefoot just as the site claims and he is not 6-1 as Leo claims. This can be very easily verified by this:

Chris Walker is EXACTLY 6 feet even barefoot as he was measured in an interview.

In the film Catch Me if You Can, DiCaprio and Walken hug each other about half was through the film, they face each other, stand eye to eye, get very close then hug.

It is absolutely clear (IF Dicaprio is not wearing shoe lifts) that he is half an inch shorter than Walken)
kevin said on 18/Jul/05
here are some better pics


to the 1st picture. zane is 1.83 cm and dicaprio doesnt look only 1 cm smaller.
in the 2nd hes at best only an inch taller than depp who is 5ft 9in.
3rd: pitt whos listed 181 cm on this site is clearly taller than dicaprio.
the 4th piture is similar to the pic with depp, only slightly taller than depardieu.
the last with wahlberg who scrapes the 5ft 8in mark shows that dicaprio isnt much taller too.

conclusion: leo must been between 5ft 10in or 5ft 11in.
CoolJ said on 12/Jul/05
Hmm, I'm 173cm and have 10.5/11 size shoes and I dont think my feet make me look unusual.
Scott said on 12/Jul/05
Agreed re. shoe size. I'm 179cm and have size 11 shoes, which make me look like I'm wearing clown's shoes when I wear Converse trainers ...

The same is true for head size, hand size etc.

No truly accurate assumptions about height can be made from these kind of stats. Although I suppose if someone claimed 6'0 had size 7 shoes you might be suspicious of lifts ;)
Mr. R said on 11/Jul/05
Sorry Jake, I have to concur. Shoe size and height are not correlative. My godson is 15 and 5-9 and wears a size 12. A friend of mine is 6-3 and wears a 9.5 or 10. My cousin is 20 and 6 foot, and wears a size 13. There is no clear relationship between feet and height.
Mr. Awesome said on 11/Jul/05
I said it once in a post about Colin Farrel, and I'll say it again; It is simply NOT accurate to judge a person's height by comparing it to ANY part of their body.

My uncle, who is a professional hockey ref, stands 5'9'' and his shoe size is 8. I on the other hand am a bit over 5'7.5'' and wear a size 10 shoe.

I brought this up in another post, when I stated that leg legnth is irellavent to height, as I have the leg legnth of a standard 5'9''-5'10 person when I am really under that mark.

The "experts" also say that your height is exactly the same as your arm span, but I know that this is not accurate either 'cause I've seen people whose arm span is up to 4 inches longer than their height.

None of these comparisons are accurate just by the simple fact that everybody's different.
Drew said on 11/Jul/05
What is this show size gibberish? I'm 5'10" and I'm a size 10. I know people who are 6'2" and are also size 10.

Anyway, Leo looks somewhere between 178 and 181 to me. He's at least 5'10" but definitely under 6'. It's hard to tell.
Viper452 said on 11/Jul/05
You cant tell by shoe size. Im 6-2.5 and I have only a 10 inch foot. Its irellavant.
Gotoxo said on 11/Jul/05
Puaj: I'm quite well proportionated and i wear shoes 12 in american measures but i'm 5'11" on the dot. What you say is nosense, i've even met a near 6'3" whose shoe size were 12 as mine (quite rare, i agree. An slim frame). What leads you to belive that cabalistic equation esoteric arts or your respect for that guy? ;)
Jake said on 10/Jul/05
Leo claims in an interview to have a size 11 shoe. If you take the anatomical formula for measuring height without shoes on based on shoe size,

a shoe size of 11 male, should yield and EXACT height of 5-11 1/2 barefoot.

It would appear that basede on this, IF, I stress IF DiCaprio is anatomically correct in proportions in his build that this site has his EXACT correct height listed.

DiCaprio is fudging in saying he's 6-1, because even in typical shoes he wouldn't be quite that tall.
KJ said on 10/Jul/05
Check out wireimage and go back some pages to that event with sean Penn and Al Gore. Leo looks about 2 inches shorter than Al, so I guess Leo is at least 5'11
Height Detective said on 7/Jul/05
Leonardo DiCaprio is 1.80 or 1.81 look at this pictures:
They have similar flated shoes and Leo look slighty tall than Giselle

With Carla Paneka ,they are both with sandals and same grownd level , If someone knows the height of Carla Paneka this colud be a good point of comparison.

Mr. Klaus said on 7/Jul/05
I don't consider DiCaprio, Pitt or Beckham perfect. But the media is always talking good about those guy's, how perfect they are etc. Some poeple hate those guy's and want to think that they are short. Perhaps i'm not a fan of Dicaprio, I just think that Dicaprio is 182/183 CM and ther is no way that he is shorter than that.
leonari said on 6/Jul/05
MR. KLAUS...What in the workld are perfect people?? It's our imperfection that make us human...I can't stand guys like you who get fooled by superficial things like beauty or money(Hollywood works because people like you admire other human beings as if their were gods...WAKE UP!!)...Not a bright coment. And BTW. whats so perfect about being 5'11 or 6' you smarta...Take your comments somewhere else man...
Mr. Klaus said on 6/Jul/05
Leonari, why must I believed that? I sounds really strange that is own girlfriend say that about him. DiCaprio as the same problem as Clooney, Pitt and other perfect poeple, poeple who are jealous want to make those perfect man as short as possible.
leonari said on 5/Jul/05
Mr Klaus Drew said he was reading an artickle where Gisele commented that he at ad shorter than her. Why can't you believe that??He never loked taller than 5'10-5'11"...the guy is skinny as hell(even when he tried to bulk up for "The BEACH") that makes him look huge on screen.
dmeyer said on 6/Jun/05
i just saw someting very interesting in the making of the aviator jude law and dicaprio are standing next to each other and jude is about 1 to 2 cm taller so dicaprio is no way over 6 feet but jude law is taller than i thaught maybe pushing 6'1''
Mr. R said on 3/Jun/05
dmeyer, through most of the Aviator, Leo and John C look close. But there is a scene when they are in the hangar with Hughes discussing his big plans, and the camera pulls back, and there is a 2 inch difference. I think they minimized the height differential for the close up shots, but forgot for the distance shots.
dmeyer said on 2/Jun/05
leo looks exactly the same height as reiley who is 6'2'' maybe leo was wearing lift also i am not sure about reily being 6'2'' i saw the making of aviator and i saw that jude law and leo exactly the same height maybe 0.5 inch diferance interesting also in the golf scene he looks 5''taller than blanchet who is close to 5'9'' that will make him close to 6'2'' maybe he had to use lift because hughes was a tall men

itor Rob: there was a picture of him bending with his brownish boots on and it wouldn't surprise me if he wore lifts in that movie to at least break confidently over the 6ft mark, since Hughes himself was close on 6ft 4]
James said on 29/May/05
Tom Hanks has said that's he's about 6 feet with normal shoes on before in an interview. In the 2002 film Catch Me If You Can, Hanks is clearly taller than Dicaprio. Of course several people that have worked with Dicaprio claim that he wers lifts. So he is probably 5'11" and is wearing 2 or 3 inch lift shoes.
Mr. R said on 26/May/05
In The Aviator, Leo looked to be at least 2 inches shorter than John C. There was one scene when they are standing together on solid ground in the hangar, and I thought it was pretty clear.
Michael said on 23/May/05
It was on Jay Leno if memory serves me correctly, if not Conan maybe? It was definitely on one of the MAIN late night talk shows.
JUSTMATT said on 20/May/05
I would like to know where you read that Michael...I'm very suspicious about this and it sounds strange that Gisele could say she measured Di Caprio in an interview. Maybe do you refers tothe interview Rob tells about in the last sentence of this page?
Michael said on 20/May/05
DiCaprio's exact height is 5'10 1/2" inches without shoes, 5'11 1/2" with shoes.
I know this because there was once an interview with his former "girlfriend" Giselle and in it she admitted that DiCaprio is shorter than her when both are barefoot. She also said that she herself measured him and he's 5'10 1/2" with no shoes.
kevin said on 24/Apr/05
dear editor why you have listed leo at 5ft 11.5in? the pics which are at the bottom, with gisele and james cameron proof that hes not over 5ft 11in.
actually i think gisele is 5ft 10in, from the pics i have seen. if im generously i would say hes 5ft 10.5in. Because mostly their are the same heights.
adriana said on 23/Apr/05
leo dicaprio is taller than gisele bundchen.....those photos prove it!
In romeo and juliet he was a lot taller than jessie bradford(5'8)
He is as tall, if not taller than gisele from many photos
dmeyer said on 17/Apr/05
hey kevin your right because i worked with tom hanks and he is no taller than 183 185 cm max maybe gisele is only 5'10''
kevin said on 14/Apr/05
hey dmeyer if dicaprio is 6ft 1in then hanks must be 6ft 2in. unbelieveble, stop dreaming.
dmeyer said on 13/Apr/05
i saw a picture from leo and gisele on us weekly with the same sneakers 1 inch heels and leo was 5 cm taller it means that dicaprio is a minimum of 6 feet 1 185 cm
dan said on 25/Mar/05
watch this one(
it looks like heidi and gisele are the same heights. the model at the right side is adriana lima and imdb says shes 5ft 10. heidi is 5ft 9 then gisele i would say is 5ft 9.5. then dicaprio would be 5ft 10. thats it.
xaoxio said on 19/Mar/05
What can I say about Leo's height in different films - the magic of liftshoes.
joeyb said on 19/Mar/05
On Jay Leno last night, Leo was definately atleast an inch to 1.5 inches taller than Jay..and he is definately taller than Christopher Walken in Catch Me if You Can
Mr. R said on 19/Mar/05
Oh Prof. Memi, some of what you say is good, but a lot is not right. I saw Ed Norton at a dinner last year, and he is definitely just over 6'. I met Alec Baldwin awhile ago, and he is just over 5'10". These two I have seen personally. I think you are right on with Stallone, Johnson, Depp. The other ones I think are below the true height, but I do not have an eyewitness account.
dicaprio fan said on 16/Mar/05
ok im a huge fan of leo but i must say that he is really not 5ft11.5 because gisele bundchen is 5ft10 and he is the same heights.
LIFTS said on 12/Mar/05
He so where's lifts. Look at him in titanic, then look at him in other films. He is using shoe boosting enhancements.
kyle said on 4/Mar/05
i met him once and he was about an inch smaller then me. I am 5ft 11 without shoes. He is never 5ft 11.5.
JUSTMATT said on 23/Feb/05
Look also on the photo DiCaprio/Mark Wahlberg (Click Here. The difference between them? 3 inch I think.
CelebHeights Editor said on 21/Feb/05
A quote from Parade magazine by Leo: "In school I was about a foot shorter than anyone else, always jumping up and getting laughs
Friend met him said on 19/Feb/05
My friend met him when she was on holiday in LA. She asked for his photo, and got her her friend to take it. So she stood beside him (she is 5ft 5') and he appeared to be only about 2 inches taller than her and they were both wearing flat shoes. Which makes me think Leonardo is using the old heighter booster method in his films, don't you? 5ft 11' sure! With elevators on...
CelebHeights Editor said on 8/Feb/05
