Luke is 181-182 cm range, IMO.
5'10 Dude said on 30/Jan/23
Luke Wilson is definitely a tiny bit taller than his brother Owen Wilson so he's at least 5'11.
VitoCheng said on 16/Jan/23
He looks 6 foot tall, and even though he's over fifty years old, his essence remains the same
Matthew Burkhardt said on 2/Dec/22
I thought he was 5-10. But it must’ve been from his Idiocracy character being average in everything.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Aug/22
Rob, is it possible him and Owen are just 5ft11 guys?
Editor Rob
Still feel Luke edges Owen, but he may well not have much on him.
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 12/Aug/22
Still think he's pretty much a 5ft 11.5 guy
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 5/Jul/22
I think he'd edge out those guys too, Tall Sam. Nearer 5ft 11.5 than Gyllenhaal.
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 5/Jul/22
Agreed, Abdul-DK.
Abdul-DK said on 14/Jun/22
181.3 cm
DarkPower729 said on 8/Oct/21
I think 5’11.25” is too low for him. He seems like a solid 5’11.5” guy to me- looks like a tall dude.

180 cm
recapa said on 4/Sep/21
180-181 for luke and 179-180 for andrew.
OriginalAnon said on 9/Jan/21
181cm, I think, is accurate.
Mimi said on 19/Oct/20
Rob in this scene from Charlie's Angels, how tall do you think the 2 bouncer dudes are beside Luke? They seem pretty huge and back then I thought Luke was a short guy.

P.S. I also didn't know he and Owen are siblings.
Editor Rob
one looks like 9 inches taller the other a foot taller!
Jake: 1.84 m - 1.85 m said on 24/Aug/20
Yep. I reckon he's closing in on 5ft 11.5in
Hulk.23 said on 31/Jul/20
A good inche taller than his brother: 5’11/180cm
Tall Sam said on 26/Jul/20
I think he looks 5'11.5" quite often and would have an edge on guys like DiCaprio, McConaughey and Pitt.
berta said on 12/May/20
181,5 ish
viper said on 24/Oct/19
Thought he had 3 inches on 5-9 Woody Harrelson in Zombieland 2
DarkPower729 said on 15/Sep/19
Always gave me a tall impression but never one of a solid 6 footer. If 1/8ths were an option, I’d guess him as 5’11.375” but I’ll be nice and put 5’11.5” 😂😂😂
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 8/Jul/19
@Rampage Go by listing i'll go with 6'2 between Luke and Andrew Click Here hoping Rob would give Andrew Wilson a page.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Mar/19
Andrews listed 6ft1 but might in fact be around 6ft2, no less than 187cm. I think strong 5ft11 for Luke, weak 5ft11 for Owen is about right
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 28/Aug/18
Andrew Wilson 6'1 1/4
Luke Wilson 5'11
Owen Wilson 5'10 1/4
lee168cm said on 14/Jun/18
Looks a good inch taller than uma Thurman in my super ex girlfriend could be close to 6 foot
Stilts said on 11/Sep/17
I am 6'10 and he looked way shorter than me. He was very short maybe 5-11 or 6ft.
Monkey knees said on 15/Jul/17
Luke is clearly an inch taller than owen. Luke is 5 11'5. Owen is 5 10'5. People arguing otherwise are being slightly silly
Marquis said on 19/May/17
Always looks 5'10.5".
S.J.H said on 27/Mar/17
I would even rule out 178.5cm for luke wilson. He always look between 5'10-5'10.5
Adijos said on 21/Mar/17
5'11.75" (182 cm)
fghjhk said on 27/Feb/17
but listed at 6' in idiocracy
6'1.5 said on 21/Feb/17
I don't know why but I always thought he was 6'3"-6'4"
Hgh said on 13/Dec/15
He is like way taller then Doug Baldwin. there is no way he is 5'11"
Mr. Kaplan said on 5/Oct/15
Terry Crews (supposedly 6'3") destroys him in IDIOCRACY. No way he's 5'11".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Aug/15
Owen Wilson - 180cm
Luke Wilson - 181cm
Andrew Wilson - 187cm
Vlad said on 16/Jun/15
lol i always thought that this guy is like 6'3 i don't know why
Pg said on 19/Mar/15
Watching my super ex girlfriend. In the gym scenes with Raine Wilson he looks maybe an inch or inch and a half shorter them Raine
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Dec/14
Not under 179cm
Alan Smihee said on 25/Dec/14
I looked up his height because he seemed taller than Uma Thurman standing next to her while she was clearly wearing heels and the shoes he had on looked normal to me. Surprised that he's not listed taller than 6ft and some people claiming that he's shorter than that. And I don't think he looked 3" shorter than Rainn Wilson.
Sans said on 4/Dec/14
Clearly below the 6ft mark with shoes on in the identity parade in meeting evil. If the height marks are accurate, he would seem closer to 5"10.
James B said on 29/Mar/14
He does not look over 5'11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jan/14
Rob, how tall do you think Andrew Wilson is?

Listed most places at 6ft1/185cm but towers over his younger more famous siblings. I'm thinking 6ft2 at the very least for that dude, if not more.
Editor Rob
he can look over 6ft 1, but I've not really looked much at him.
Chance said on 5/Jan/14
I'm 6 feet tall and I stood right next to him, he was so short it shocked me! Maybe 5'6" at most. Very small!!
Sam said on 28/Oct/13
It makes sense since Luke looks pretty consistently an inch taller than Owen Wilson, who is listed at 5'10.5"...I'm a bit surprised, nonetheless, since I thought Luke was a legimate six foot even guy.
glynny 182 said on 23/Oct/13
could you see full 6foot as a possibility for him rob? looks tall at times . .
cole said on 26/Jul/13
181 minimum, 183 cm maximum. 182 cm is probably spot on.
teej said on 14/Jul/13
Looks only 5'9 next to cameron diaz
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/12
Luke Wilson 5ft11.5(182cm)
Owen Wilson 5ft11(180cm)
Andrew Wilson 6ft2(188cm)
bodwaya said on 15/Jun/12
he was 3 inches shorter then 6 foot 2 rain wilson on super ex girl friend. Plus judging from numerous pictures from him and owen wilson they always lokk the same height. So i would say 5 foot 11 with shoes.
nice guy said on 3/Jan/12
5'11 with shoes on tops
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 30/Nov/11
Luke: 5 ft 11.5
Owen: 5 ft 10.75
Andrew: 6 ft 2
Silent d said on 26/Oct/11
He was shorter than uma thurman who is 180cm. Her was a little taller than gwyneth paltrow who is 5 foot 9. I can live with 5 foot 11.
LAN Jiao said on 26/Oct/11
luke 179cm!
LAN Jiao said on 13/Oct/11
Luke Wilson is 8cm shorter than 6"1.5 will ferell in old school. Will ferell is spoted 6'1.5 with 6'1 range soccer player so how could near 6ft for luke? Luke is near 5'11 than 6ft. Uma thurman is not shorter than luke. Uma is 5'11 , luke is 5'10.75 at best.
jake said on 7/Sep/11
6ft0 out of bed and between 181-182 cm evening.
jake said on 6/Sep/11
I agree with you about Andrew but not Luke. Luke Wilson always looks near 6ft to me, 5ft11.5/1.82 m
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Sep/11
Luke Wilson is 5"11(180cm) and Owen Wilson is 5"10.75(180cm). Their older and lesser known brother Andrew Wilson is listed as 6"1(185cm) but when you see him next to his brothers he towers both of them. So he's definitely around 6"2...
Dominic 176cm said on 28/Aug/11

Watch that 70's show. Luke WIlson towers over the 5'11" Topher Grace, but stands even with (if not a tad bit taller than) the 6'1" Kurtwood Smith. He also stands significantly taller than Laura Prepon, who is 5'10". So the claim that Luke Wilson is 5'11.5" is a blatant lie.

6ft never towers 5'10.5 He was taller than Topher but I wouldn't say he towered him. 182/183 is splitting hairs anyway. He's no shorter than 182 tho. Secondly, Kurtwood Smith was never 6'1 on that 70's show...
5'8.76786 said on 11/Aug/11
Laura Prepon is a solid 5'10, Topher Grace is a full 5'11, and Luke is about 6'. Owen is like 5'10.5, and Andrew is at least 6'2.5

Dude you're an idiot, the cameras are a little wrong. And Topher is 5'10" if not 5'10.5". Get your facts right, plus Luke is probably about 5'11" flat or 5'10.5"
James said on 11/Jun/11
i think he does look 182cm. Maybe not quite 6ft but close.
Andy said on 28/Apr/11
In "Old school" he looks much taller in front of 6"5 Vince Vaughn.
Matt said on 31/Jan/11
Saw a pic of all 3 Wilson bros together. Luke is barley taller than Owen, probably just 5' 11''. Their brother other brother Andrew towers over both of them
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jan/11
heraclitus said on 26/Nov/10
Josh j's pic is right on the dot..Luke and his bro Owen are the exact same hieght in that pic. So give or take an inch from that image...and that is basically around the 6 foot mark. period.

"jewelz says on 7/May/09
idk in that movie old school, he was almost as tall as vince vaughn and vince vaughn is 6'5''."

Which version was this? The Luke Wilson cut? No way did he look almost as tall as VV. VV is huge, and dwarfs L. Wilson. But I think 182 cm is fine for him. He is tall for sure. But Will Ferrell and Vince Vaughn are extremely tall (for actors), and thus make him look a lot smaller than he is. Like Jon Favreau in Swingers...I used to think he was short but he's above 6'0".

Clay said on 16/Apr/09
CHANCE Michaels, Luke is not 5'8, that's idiotic. Go watch Old school, if he was 5'8 Ferrell and Vaughn would tower over him. Next to them he looks 6 foot so he must be about 5'11 without shoes.
yoyo said on 18/Dec/08
look more like 5ft10 beside 5ft8.75 james caan. this guy could apear to be less than 3cm taller than his 178cm brother owen wilson or apear same tall. Weir..
MHouillon said on 29/Nov/08
Well if he striaghtens up next to Caan he could look near 3 inches taller.
kevin said on 31/Oct/08
doesnt look 182 next to caan. more like

Lebensdorf said on 23/Oct/08
Andrew Wilson has just got to be at least 6'2''. Come on, I know Luke is at least 5'10''. Andrew looks like he's about four inches taller in some pictures.
Hugh said on 25/Sep/08
Andrew Wilson should be added to this site. He towers over his brothers. He might be 6ft2.
Hugh said on 13/Sep/08
Might be 6ft. But 6ft2 HA!. That ould result in a 6ft1.5 Owen Wilson and 6ft4 Andrew wilson.
Guate30 said on 20/Aug/08
He's listed as 6'2 on the Great I MDB lol.
CHANCE Michaels said on 28/Jul/08
I saw him at Concord in LA and he is super short... Im 6 even and he was very short. 5'8''. I have looked through your site and the ones that I have seen on the site are very generous. Most are about 2 inches to much. Luke is NOWHERE near 5'11. I was shocked at his height as I am with most celebs I have seen. They lie lie lie
Joe said on 9/Jun/08
Walked past him in LA last month. I'm 5-11 and I was a hair taller than him actually... Can't believe he actually claims 6-2, it's ridiculous. If you see him next to his brothers you'll see that Andrew, his older brother, has him by about two-three inches and he's not even a full 6-1 and Owen (5-10) is just about as tall as him.
Anonymous said on 13/Mar/08
There is no way he's 5'11.5", the 6'3" Will Ferrell towered over him in "Old School." In my opinion he's 179cm, 180cm at the most.
lizzz said on 4/Mar/08
i think 5'11.5 in idiocracy
Socom said on 9/Dec/07
probably 5'10.75, could be a lifter after seeing some of these photos.
dmeyer said on 2/Nov/07
he looked barely uma's height
Matt said on 31/Oct/07
In "My super Ex-Girlfriend, he is easily 4 cm taller than Uma.
krobert said on 9/Oct/07
he was clearly a solid inch taller than Jay Leno when he was on the tonight show a while ago
bam said on 8/Oct/07
looked at least 1.5" taller than Toper Grace in that 70's show. He could be 6ft,
especially if owen is 5'11.
kevin said on 23/Aug/07
rob this guy is 5'11'' at best. just watch oldschool. in some scenes he looks over 10cm smaller then ferrell whos maybe 190-191cm.
hes also barely taller than his brother owen whos about 5'10''.

my guess is that luke is no more than 180cm. owen looks to me a tad smaller sometimes equal so 178-179 would be correct.
RobertJ said on 17/Jul/07
Luke looked taller than Topher grace in that 70's show so 5'11.5'' sound right.
Brent said on 11/Jul/07
Ray, in that picture owen is looks to be slouching horriably.
Ray said on 3/May/07
So you say he's shorter than Owen?? Okay, how about seeing this picture. Luke's looking about 2 inches taller. Owen's 5'10. Luke's 5'11.5 or 6'0 Click Here
GP said on 20/Apr/07
in the movie Bottle Rocket, he is actually shorter than Owen. so whats the go there.
dmeyer said on 12/Feb/07
uma was 2.5 to 3 inches taller than him in heels so 5'11 to 5'11.5 for him not 6 feet
youngbutgood said on 7/Feb/07
Have you seen the pics with Owen, he looks exactly the same. Seeing that you have Owen at 5"10, i think this guy should be the same.
T said on 5/Dec/06
I met him where I used to work in Austin. 5 11.5 seems right.
Glenn said on 30/Oct/06
Owen appeared a shocking 5-11 when he stood 3 feet in front of me a strange illusion of 5-6 hunched over and running into a hotel,30 feet in front of one friend,and 2 others on this site insist on 5-8.the man is no smaller than 5-10.
Dr. Flem said on 28/Oct/06
No way is he 5ft11, he was only about an inch or 2 taller than Martin Lawrence in Blue Streak, hence he is around 5ft10 at the most, because lawrence is listed at 5ft7 and a half here. I think you need to rethink his height urgently
sf said on 28/Aug/06
I'll go along with MD on the Topher Grace comparison. He always looks about an inch taller (to me) on that 70's show which would put him around 6.0".
Ball-A-Hallic said on 19/Jul/06
Yea defently in old school he looked no 6'0 i'd say 5'10.5 after seeing it a 2nd time probally 5'11.5 with shoes but i'd say a solid 5'10 without shoes
Jack said on 19/Jun/06
Anonymous, maybe because Uma Thurman is 5'11.5? Are you kidding me? OF COURSE SHE WILL BE TALLER THAN HIM.
Viper652 said on 12/Jun/06
Man, Luke looks barely 5-9 to me in Old School. Maybe its because Vince and Will are so tall?
MD said on 10/Jun/06
Oops, I just noticed, Steve, you said that Luke is 5'11". I agree.
MD said on 10/Jun/06
Steve, Will Ferrell is 6'3".
Anonymous said on 9/Jun/06
i am watching mtv movie awards and kate hudson who is supposedly 5'6 is the SAME height as luke and matt dillon. there is NO way either of those dudes is 6ft
Steve said on 9/Jun/06
will ferrel had a good 4 inches in old school on him he is 5'11 tops
Anonymous said on 5/Jun/06
Uma Thurman who's 6' in heels is taller than him. How's he 6'?
sam said on 9/May/06
I thought Andrew Wilson was at least 6'2".
Dominic said on 6/May/06
Anonymous, Owen Wilson 5"7? Hahahaha, what does that make 6"0 1/2 Christopher Walken? 5"8? And if Chris Walken is only 5"8 than Robert De Niro would be 5"4.5.
Chance said on 3/Apr/06
NO WAY..............he is probably about 5'8'". I live in Hollywood and go to clubs all the time. I stood next to Luke and Owen and they are both around 5'8". Every celeb I have seen is WAY shorter than you would think or are told. Leo is maybe 5'10"' Timberlake maybe 5"11....I could go on but there IS NO WAY LUKE W. IS OVER 5'8". Vince V is really 6'5" though.........
Anonymous said on 29/Dec/05
hmm...he looks like he is over 6ft to me in that picture MD posted with Topher Grace and Laura Prepon...but i think thats because the camera is favoring him...however, i do believe he is probably 6 foot flat.
MD said on 9/Dec/05
He's either 5'11" or 6'0 (in shoes) or somewhere in between. He looks to be as tall, or just slightly taller (.25 or .5 inches) taller than 5'11" Topher Grace:


Here also only appears an inch taller at most than 5'10" Laura Prepon


Luke at him said on 29/Nov/05
Luke wilson is 6ft.
Proof: If you watch blue streak, around the minute 53, you can see luke wilson standing next to a door,fast forward a few seconds later and you'll see that dave chappele(who is almost a defenite 6 ft)is at the exact same head level,with luke slouching by the way.
Anonymous said on 3/Nov/05
I've met him/walked by him several times im Austin, Texas. He is not quite 6 ft. 5'10" -11". He talked with my 6'2" boyfriend enough times / for long enough for me to compare. Owen is around 5'7", I mean short. Andrew Wilson is the only one at the 6 ft mark.

Here is a funny pic of him shooting the recent film with Uma, wearing obvious "high heel" runners.

With 5'6" Jack Black for good measure:
Ball-A-Hallic said on 7/Jun/05
I dont think Luke's 6'0 he doesnt look it he's more 5'11 or 5'10 but I think him and Owen arent above 6'0.
dmeyer said on 30/Mar/05
hey smoke dorff is 5'8'' and but luke does loock only 2 1/2'' inches shorter than affleck so that would make him 6'
