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.

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.

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 reason.so 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 min.photo 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
ChickKick said on 27/Dec/05
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.
to antonio said on 28/Nov/05
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 BondMovies.com "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"
said on 22/Aug/05
found this little pic with charles
prince charles is in the foreground so he have an advantage but even if they were side by side dicaprio wouldnt be 1.5 inches taller.[Editor Rob: There there little Leo. Nah, that pic you show is a bit deceptive. This angle is slightly better at seeing his eyelevels]
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."
Anonymous said on 11/Aug/05
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!
kevin said on 25/Jul/05
actually irons is 185 cm not 189 cm. if he would be that tall then dicaprio really could be 183-185 cm but he isnt.
reilly looked in every scene with dicaprio taller but dicaprio had this suspicious shoes on. for sure with lifts in it. so this comparison doesnt count.
spielberg is 171 cm at best and when you watch these photos you would realize that dicaprio cant be more then 180 cm.
well, we all know that tom hanks is taller then dicaprio by an inch.
that pic proof that hanks is an inch smaller then aykroyd (6ft 1in)
that would make dicaprio 5ft 11in max.
[Editor Rob: speaking of Irons I was channel flicking and saw a scene where he was maybe 1cm (not conclusive) taller than Robbie Coltrane (who maybe isn't quite the 6ft 1 anymore)...so Irons I think has been a 186cm - where some people get the 6ft 3 and that bizarre 6ft 5 for Irons I've no idea...]
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.
Mr. Klaus said on 5/Jul/05
I have seen pics of Dicaprio and Gisele in wich both don't wore shoes and Dicaprio looks inch and half taller than Gisele.
[Editor Rob: nah, they're not the best pictures to judge from because the angle of the beach favours dicaprio here. Although somebody who likes photoshop could look at the picture and find that they are very very close ina ctual height...]
Drew said on 5/Jul/05
"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."
What more proof do you need? I also saw this interview.
[Editor Rob: I could track this down if I knew which tv show, magazine this interview was in ;)]
Mr. R said on 8/Jun/05
Hmmm, these pics of Jude Law definitely make him look like the 5-9 he claimed in the interview. What do you think Rob?
[Editor Rob: Most of the pics I see of Law, he still looks in the 5ft 11 range. Somebody has got to have met this guy up close and finally reveal the honest truth about him!]
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.
dmeyer said on 25/May/05
i have 2 things to say 1 leo does look the same height than john c reily that would make him 6'2'' 2nd i have a friend that met leo and gisele and i told him that gisele said that she need a guy who is taller than her then my friend told me that leo was at least 3'' taller than her and also i saw pics from aviators premiere gisele is wearing 3'' heels and leo is steel 1'' taller that would make him 6'2'' from the other side i have worked with hanks and he is no taller than 184 and leo does look a bit shorther 182 cm maybe
[Editor Rob: depending on angle dicaprio can look only 1 inch shorter than Reilly. I do wonder if Reilly is a proper 188cm now...]
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(http://www.elsiglodetorreon.com.mx/images/gallery/moda/2003/11/4f11ed11d36a963ff5798731fa17b6e9.jpeg)
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.
said on 23/Feb/05
Look also on www.gettyimages.com 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
On the press junket for Aviator, Mr R informs us that DiCaprio is still getting listed as 6ft 1.
Anonymous said on 8/Feb/05
If DiCaprio is 5'10"+, he should sack his agent. In every film I've seen him in, he looks like a midget. In that western he did (Silverado?) he also looked like a mushroom, when wearing a 10-gallon hat. In both "Titanic" and "Gangs of New York" his physical appearance would have made him plausible as the heroines' kid brother; but as the hero? Come on! Now he has played Howard Hughes, AND received a nomination. Oh dearie me. What next - King Kong?
