5ft7 1/4 for him at max
He might go below 5ft7 flat at night
Claiming 5ft9 is crazy
berta said on 4/Jan/23
for some reason i never think about him as a short person, its when he stand beside others you see he is clearly at the very most 5´8. I think Tom cruse could have half inch on him. 172 vs 171.
Zach Catselbow said on 21/Jun/22
Chance of 1/4 inch downgrade Rob? I feel like most of the time now he is looking more 5’7” than 5’8”.
Rosario said on 5/Apr/22
He lives in the neighborhood where I work and I see him at just about every other shift I work. Im 5’7 flat and I can swear he is the same exact height when standing next to him. I’d go with 5’7.25 max for him.

Rob, do you think if Tom is 5'6.5 then how tall can mark look next to him
Editor Rob:
He doesn't look much taller, you could say if Holland is a true 5ft 6.5 Mark is struggling to look much over 5ft 7

Well at least the listing is still spot on (Click Here), Holland had the thicker shoes yet still look 1 inch shorter

Rob, if Tom Holland is 5'6.5 then does it affect mark's height as well
Editor Rob
Well Mark's been holding onto this figure for a while. Sometimes it does seem a fraction too high.
Daniel Lee said on 3/Sep/21
"I'm a lot shorter in person"...
Nobody thiks Mark is taller than 5'7-5'7.5
Editor Rob
I think 7.5 is highest I could go for him, I see how he looks just 5ft 7 flat more often than the 5ft 8 he had on his early resume...which I mentioned in the description.

For anybody curious, here is Mark Ruffalo Resume. I always chuckle at some of the things actors have on their special skills or interest section, "Back-packing" 🤨
WILLY98 said on 11/Jun/21
Rob!Do you think he would measure only 5 7 after a tiring day?
Editor Rob
there is a chance of that 5ft 7-7.25 range
Riley said on 4/Apr/21
Hey rob can you tell me what age you think men on average start to shrink ??
Editor Rob
45-50 a smaller proportion might start losing height, but really 50-60 range is when a decent chunk will lose a fraction or more.

60-70 a lot of men then lose noticeable height.
Steven Stinson said on 20/Feb/21
171.5-172 prime nowadays a 1/4 or 1/2 inch lower
Aj06 said on 12/Jan/21
In thor ragnork he looked at some points in the movie to me only in the 5'6.5 area with thor who chris hemsworth around 6'3 but I think hemsworth also had a footwear advantage over him there still for me he is no more than 5'7 tops.

How tall do you think his oldest son Is rob? 177 cm?
jimmy495 said on 11/Aug/20
He can be seen sometimes with a bad posture even as low as 169 cm or as tall as in some pictures with DiCaprio he looks like hes 173 cm I'd say 172 cm was peak maybe even a 173 cm
JohnMoore-162cm said on 11/Jun/20
He was 5ft7 1/4" - 5ft7 1/2" in his prime , today he is probably 5ft7 flat

🎁🎂🎊🎀 Happy Birthday Mark! 🎀🎊🎂🎁

Wishing Mark a Very Happy 52nd Birthday today.

5ft7.5. 😁👍

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Jun/19
@ Nik - If you want to see Mark acting, then I can't think of a more exciting film than 'Shutter Island'. It is about a cruelly and badly run prison and has many, many huge names in it. I bought it for the big star line-up and have seen it more times than I can count, I'd say around 7+.

The least Mark looks in my opinion is 5ft7.5, but he can and does come over looking fairly average, rather than lower average, possibly because he is advised to wear chunky shoes for his roles. 🤔

I shall give sparky Mark 5ft7.5!
Nik said on 6/Jun/19
@ Sandy Cowell - That's very interesting, thanks! I have never heard of "Shutter Island", I will do some research to find out what it is about! If I liketh I may buy it!

@ Rob - What do you think is the smallest height that Mark Ruffalo could be?
179cm guy said on 3/Jun/19
I'd be more surprised if he was under 5ft 7.5 than a bit over it. Solid 171-172cm guy, but I'll give him 5'7.75 if only to bring the average guess up a little bit.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 13/May/19
Check him out, Nik, in the movie 'Shutter Island'. It's a great film, with a great cast, which includes Mark Ruffalo!

Nik said on 9/May/19
The average vote works out to be 5'7.35" after 55 votes!

He doesn't look short!

Rising - 174 cm said on 10/Nov/18
He first tried claiming 5'9" without specifying and then when pressed said 5'9" with thick soles.
Redwing said on 8/Nov/18
Rob, is he claiming 5’9 as his official height or is he saying that’s his height in thick shoes and he means he’s 5’7?
Editor Rob
Maybe with a solid shoe he got near 5ft 9 for a measurement. I don't think it's that unreasonable - even in a boot he could get near 5ft 9 with good posture, half the time he never seems to stand tall.
MAD SAM said on 4/Jun/18
171 cm perfect
Nik said on 26/May/18
Not a bad listing!
Ruffahulk said on 24/May/18
Funny how obvious seeing Ruffalo next to RDJ makes his lift wearing. At times they’re eye to eye, next thing you know RDJ has sprouted up and has 2 inches on Ruff lol.
Sandy Cowell said on 6/May/18
I saw him in 'Shutter Island' yesterday and Googled the whole cast as I was watching it! Their heights, and I mean ALL of them, were included, and Mark had an entry of 5ft8! I didn't disbelieve it, and from many angles he did, but I am more inclined to go along with the slightly shorter option, 'cos we all know how economical with the truth Google can be, especially in the height department!

Next to Leo, I could see at least a healthy three plus inches. Leo was written up as 5ft11 and he certainly pulled it off, if you'll forgive the expression!

What an excellent film, and the ultimate mental institution nightmare!

Mark gets a top-class 5ft7.5!
Truthteller said on 3/May/18
He looked really short standing next to RDJ in Infinity War. I was taken aback to why they shot Ruffalo in that stance where he looked legit 5'0 even.
berta said on 30/Apr/18
his cliam is really honest. he is that height in thick shoes, very thick
Smiles03 said on 26/Apr/18
A very strong 5'7
Tall Sam said on 17/Jan/18
Didn't he once claim only 5'6"? I think he might edge closer to a strong 5'7" than near 5'8" but the listing. Back in Zodiac, when he and a presumably liftless Downey Jr. face off, they looked quite a similar height.

Ruffalo also did a creek clean-up here (an upstanding guy) in Philly with my friend who I think is just shy of six feet even and looked maybe strong 5'7" range in a photo with my friend Robin.
Editor Rob
I've not seen him claim 5ft 6, his 5ft 9 in big soles seems believable. Not a guy who stands at his best half the time.
Darius said on 15/Jan/18
171cm max. I think so cuz if he were 5'7.5", how can he look 3 inches shorter than Downey in the Avengers films although Downey is in his huge lifts. The max Downey can pull off in his lifts is 5'10", so I dont think Ruffalo is 5'7.5" more like 5'7.25" max more likely a solid 5'7" . Also he looked more or less same height as Tom Holland who had slightly thicker footwear. IMO Holland is a 5'6.75" guy.
Slim 185 said on 14/Nov/17
Shorter than RDJ?
Jim said on 21/Oct/17
He's 5'6.75"
Anonymous said on 15/Oct/17
He is kind of beefy guy being an ex wrestler and his proportions are decent but not sure he is he 5'7.5. More like strong 5'7 to me.
Darius said on 16/Jul/17
He looks 5'7.25" max with Tom Holland who is 5'7.25" listed on this site. IDK How to post the pic. But it's easy to find if you search the Avengers Assemble D23 Expo in the YouTube. But in that video I thought Ruffalo was even 5'7" flat max when standing with Tom Holland. Maybe Holland had shoe advantage. I just can see 5'7.5" for Ruffalo now. Downey looks 3 inches taller due to the obvious elevator shoes.
S.J.H said on 7/Jul/17
"I'm a lot shorter in person."

This quote makes him a minimun 5'6 in real and max 5'7
berta said on 17/Jun/17
hm hius claim is " 5`9 with thick soles " i dont know about you but to me his cliam is that he is that height with big shoes on and that makes him an honest guy. 171-171,5 barefoot and with thik soles on as he says close to 5`9
Shredder said on 13/Jun/17
I think he is a 5'7.75 guy that can look 5'7
Sam said on 7/Jun/17
My friend recently did a creek clean-up here in Philadelphia with Mark and in photos my friend (a strong 5'11") appeared to be about 3.5-4 inches taller I'd reckon.

strong 172cm I would guess

If Steve Carell is 5'9, that makes Mark a 5'7 guy at most; perhaps a fraction under
Cameron said on 3/Apr/17
I bet he's the same height as RDJ.
Angie said on 31/Mar/17
David, are 'shorty plants' an actual thing or did you just make that up? Because there might just actually be extras that are shorter that Ruffalo?
Johnny said on 14/Mar/17
DiCaprio had 3.5 inches on him in the movie Shutter Island, now that puts Leo roughly in that 5ft 11 zone.
David said on 9/Feb/17
Just watched him in THE NORMAL HEART. Mark is a gifted actor, but he looked shockingly small next to virtually every 5'11" actor in the piece (I know Jim Parsons is taller). A couple of shorty "plants" were inserted so he'd not always be the shortest person in the room, but he almost looked like an adolescent looking up at Dad--i.e., noticeably, not just slightly, shorter than everyone else. Even 5'8" Julia had to bend in their dance scene. I say 5'6 1/2"
172.4cm guy said on 8/Feb/17
I was watching YouTube last night and found "Avengers: Family Feud" on Jimmy Kimmel's Late Night channel. I was struck by how small Mark looked in comparison to his fellow Avengers. Here's a pic from the vid...Click Here. Granted the posture is not the best from all three of these guys, but even so they are all a slight hunched and it's clear that there is about a 3-4cm difference between Mark and Jeremy Renner (assuming similar footwear), a confirmed 174cm guy. So I think at best Mark is 5'7.25", but more realistically closer to 5'7".
S.J.H said on 9/Nov/16
Absolute lowest 5'7
Fred said on 8/Nov/16
Rob, do you think after a tiring day, he could go down to 170 cm?
Editor Rob
Fred, I think that's a hard one to say, because Mark isn't a guy with the best posture. Measure him and I think he would still be over 170cm at his low.
Angie. said on 4/Nov/16
I love his quote about his height! When did he say that?
Editor Rob
just a Twitter quote.
Benjamin Fritz said on 23/Oct/16
Looks close to RDJ who always has elevator shoes.
josh jeffords said on 23/Oct/16
Mark is good at hiding it but he is short noticeably shorter than tom cruise.
That makes him maybe 5 6 .5 at best and yes his build and posture do not help.
Oddly he was noticeably taller than the guy who was macguyvers sidekick.. who is listed 5 7 but aging.
And the conundrum that is jamie foxx "height/build wise" was slightly taller at 5 9 ish...
All this aside mark is an excellent actor and seems a cool little dude.
Word1234 said on 20/Oct/16
Definitely not under 5'7. I think this is a good height for mark, at times he looks under this but at times he looks over! Fair listing imo!
Angie. said on 7/Oct/16
There's a couple pictures of Mark Ruffalo standing with Tom Cruise at an event a few years ago, and Cruise is a good few inches taller than him. In other pics at the same event, you can see Cruise's shoes are pretty flat. Either Cruise is taller than we all think (which I Doubt), or Ruffalo is tiny.
Alex2401 said on 23/Sep/16
Next to Michael Keaton he looks solid 174cm
Hugzz said on 21/Sep/16
Interesting picture on his instagram recently with joss whedan.
He looks quite short!! I'd say more that 2.5 inches.
Angie. said on 31/Aug/16
A lot of people here are saying 5'6. I'm 5'6, and I just can't picture him being the same height as me. 5'7 seems right to me.
Sammy Derrick said on 1/Aug/16
It's hard to pinpoint his height,he has a stocky build and a deep voice and incredible camera presence which gives the illusion to be taller.
I think he is one of those few guys in Hollywood to use his 5'7 frame to his advantage.He's often playing an important central character...
Mat said on 19/Jul/16
Rob is Franco wearing lifts here? He doesn't look 2 inches under Ruffalo. Maybe 1.5 at most. Rufalo also looks the same if not shorter than 5'7.25 Eisenberg. Click Here

I agree with Rob to go back to Zodiac, there's barely any difference between Ruffalo and Downey Jr. I think people are being thrown by Downey's increasing likelihood of showing up to events and film sets in his lifts.
Rey said on 22/Jun/15
In flat feet barely 5'7"....
Stiffelio said on 30/May/15
I think his height is pretty much as stated here 5'7.5". Not quite 5'8". Saw him most recently in The Normal Heart: what an amazing actor he is!
TNTinFL said on 27/May/15
Wow. He is a lot shorter than I thought.
I assumed he was in the 5'9" range. Guess he must wear lift or they use good camera angles on him.
the shredder said on 23/May/15
G thought this guy was 5'9 , 5'10 range
Editor Rob
I don't think in brief scene together with Downey in zodiac he looked much different from him.
Lorne??? said on 21/May/15
Ha, I meant to say that he was "not over 5'7", not 5'6! Like I said I don't think he's that low, but I do think he's barely 5ft7 169-170, at times he (almost certainly) wears lifts to make himself look over 5'7, but he's not.

Honestly, he looked 5'6-6.5 with Tom Cruise, which is what Mr R says he looked with his 5ft8 friend. And of course he's at least 4cm under RDJ in Avengers, so I'm sure he(RDJ) was packing.

I know Ruffalo doesn't always hold the best posture, but 171 I simply impossible; again, that would make him the same height as these guys(Cruise/RDJ) and he's clearly not, Cruise in normal footwear is quite clearly taller

Come on, and help me out, I know other posters have evidence to post. He really does look sub 5'7 at times... I'm surprised he was ever listed at 5'8.
(He really looked short. In TKAA, I wonder how he stacked up in 13-30, it's been awhile.
172.4cm guy said on 20/May/15
@kim that's because RDJr wears elevator shoes, giving him 3 inches in public appearances. Mark and RDJr are really about the same height.
Lorne??? said on 20/May/15
Rob, this guy is shorter than both Robert Downey AND Tom Cruise, and he even looked short on the kids are alright.

No way he is this height. Granted, Cruise and Downey wear lifts, but, Cruise had Pretty normal looking dress shoes in Collateral, and he was shorter than self proclaimed 5ft9 Jaime Foxx; so I doubt he wore lifts, or at worst, a modest 1cm lift in his shoes to look a more solid 5'8. Yet he still looked about 4cm taller than Mark. And RDJ can look 4-5cm taller in Avengers.

Even taking posture into account, there is simply no way he is virtually the same height as Tom Cruise and RDJ.

Rob, please, downgrade this guy. Maybe he's not as low as the 5'6 Mr R says, but he's clearly not over 5'6, and 169cm wouldn't suprise me.

Will you consider at least going to a flat 5ft7???
Editor Rob
not seen enough to say he consistently would be a 5ft 7 flat guy.
kim said on 19/May/15
robert downey jr. (iron man) towers over him in the avengers like a good 3 in

Looked really short in Foxcatcher. No taller than 5'7.

I always thought he was 5 foot 9 but now i know he is shorter. I think about 5 foot 7.
Josh said on 13/Feb/15
This is a pretty accurate listing. Looks about 5'8. People saying he's under 5'7 have no idea what they are talking about.
bandet said on 19/Jan/15
Mr R and Holywood Fan...Sorry. Just been on a set with him. He's no shorter than 5ft7. He's got pretty crabby posture. Dago Red,.... funny quip about Cruise and the apple! You need to be around celebs for longer so the sudden subjectivity about seeing them in reality wears off. Then maybe you can judge height, but then maybe you can't. Why does everyone assume they can see height within half an inch accuracy. Heck, even your friends could be lying about their height.
Realist said on 23/Nov/14
@Dago Red Nice one bro. Cheers. Apple totally makes sense. Good one.
Dago Red said on 18/Nov/14
You cannot judge his height next to Tom Cruise. Tom Cruise had a half apple surgically added to his feet 30 years ago...

Yes, Mark is almost 5'6", just a Tad below. Height does not make a person, an actor. Look at Danny DeVito as the shortest man, Cameron Diaz & Charlize Theron both at 5'10.5". Mark is a cute little Teddy bear.

171-172 range no less.

In person he was 4in shorter than me i knew 5'8-8.25 was too much he isnt under 5'7.5 thaugh 5'7.25 isnt impossible but not 5'6.75-7in
edguy282 said on 5/Jun/14
@Sam, in the picture you posted, Carell's footwear seems to be giving him a lot of lift. Carrell's stature looks more like 173 at most, and Ruffalo is somewhere between 172-171 given his posture and much more reasonable footwear.
Realist said on 21/May/14
@Sam, Actually Sam there is only a 1 inch difference Ruffalo's posture is bizarre. I love this guy and he has become really popular since 2010, i dont understand why does he stand like a loser. He looks like 169 in this photo. Carell's posture is quite good but the guy has clearly lost about 1/4-1/2 an inch, so id give him 173-174. This is bad news for Channing Tatum cause he does'nt look more than 181 in any of the photos.
Sam said on 20/May/14
This appears to be accurate compared to Steve Carell, a 1.5 inch discrepancy in height seems accurate.

Mr. R said on 2/May/14
Rob, I know you doubt my estimates sometimes. BUT, the day I met Mark, my friend who is 5-8 talked about how short he is. I think that he is generally surrounded by shorter actors, and does wear lifts at times.
MD said on 1/May/14
I guess I'm still not really understanding what you're saying. Perhaps a picture would help. All I could say is that weight loss and gain can produce illusions. I mean, the reality is that if you thought he looked broader, then it must have been fat or muscle and he simply lost that. He obviously didn't shrink, so I guess I'm not sure what you're getting at or asking.
Mr. R said on 1/May/14
So you are finally listening to me Rob. When you get to his real height of 5-6, call me. lol
Editor Rob
5ft 6 I think is too low, but with poor posture maybe he looked that short
Realist said on 30/Apr/14
@MD, no i am not talking about losing weight. He has completely changed his structure? Its not easy to change the bone structure. Ill again take Rupert Grints example, he might become thin. But he might still not look like Tom Felton. Nothin is impossible though.
MD said on 18/Apr/14
Are you seriously asking how people lose weight? lol
Realist said on 15/Apr/14
Rob, if you see one of his high school yearbook photos he is on the flabby side. Not obese bu his shoulders look broader and he looks bigger(eg. Rupert Grint).How do you think he became so lean after that. Can anyone do that.
edguy282 said on 26/Mar/14
Definitely no shorter than 171cm. I might have given him 172cm, but I'm glad he was downgraded too. Far more realistic.
leonari said on 22/Feb/14
170 cm is a possibility. Anything below a joke.
jean said on 22/Feb/14

Possibly 170? He is a little bit shorter than Downey Jr and Renner (5'8" range)
Realist said on 19/Feb/14
In Kids are alright Hutcherson was about 5'4, now he is like 5'5, so 3 inches difference at that time.
MD said on 11/Feb/14
The problem I have with this listing is if it were true, he could come off looking average, and he NEVER does. Why Rob is keeping him at this inflated height, I don't know.
Realist said on 8/Feb/14
5'6 too low. Same height as Tom Cruise. 171 cm. Cruise is about 5'6.5-5'7(169-170 cm). Personally i think 5'7 to 5'9 is an unlucky range. Its neither here nor there.
Lorne said on 31/Jan/14
He ain't 173cm, that is all I'll say.
Mr. R said on 29/Jan/14
@ P. I have been saying for several years that he is 5-6. I met him several years ago.
P. said on 28/Jan/14
Stood next to him on the subway. He's no taller than 5'6, tops.
MD said on 27/Jan/14
Yeah, 5'6" seems a bit low, but 5'8" is definitely an overlisting. If he were this height, he could manage to look just below average height with the right shoes, but he always looks clearly short, to me, regardless of the footwear. 5'7" is the top of the scale for him.
Balrog said on 26/Jan/14
Mr R. 5'7'' Could buy but 5'6'' is just too low!
Mr. R said on 26/Jan/14
Mark was two inches shorter than my 5-8 friend. Even he remarked at how short Mark was.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jan/14
He's got rather a large head and big hair which sort of gives a bigger impression I think.

5'6??? LOL have you seen him next to Josh Hutcherson?
Arch Stanton said on 24/Jan/14
Strange but I thought he looked 5'11! in The Kids are all Right, how short is Josh Hutcherson then or wasn't he fully grown in that movie?
Lorne said on 20/Jan/14
This guy was shorter than Cruise, and Cruises footwear wasn't even dodgy. He's not 5ft8. 5ft7.5 is closer...

last film I watched with him in it was Last Castle - he could look nearer 5ft 7 in that at times.

Cannot be 173 looks too short in front of Hemsworth almost a head, 170 tops. Legit 5'8.5 Clark Gregg does not look as small in front of Chris Hemsworth.

5'7.5-5'8 in person
zA said on 24/Feb/13
Based on research he is 5'6. Have proof upon request. *note* not sure if celebrities are measured with shoes.
Hew said on 17/Jan/13
I don't think he's much over 5'7 if anything at all. Strikes me as a 5'6-guy.
SAMMY DERRICK said on 28/Dec/12
Mark Ruffalo;5,7
Eric Bana;6,2
Edward Norton;6,0
heights of all hulk actors
Clempance said on 22/Dec/12
I'm 5'9". Worked with him on Foxcatcher this past week. Right next to him, I had him by about 1.5". He's def between 5'7"-5'8". No more no less. And an absolutely AWESOME guy. :)
Louis said on 16/Oct/12
Probably 167 maybe 168 def. not taller
jfm said on 9/Oct/12
I met Mark about 2 years ago at a health club in Boston. I'm 6'3" and Mark is much shorther than me. He's perhaps 5'7", but not any taller than that. I was surprised how short he is and he is a funny guy, I told him he should have stayed in the police cruiser in the movie "Collateral" and he laughed.
leonari said on 9/Oct/12
Anything under a good 5'7" is a joke. He is not a lift wearer thats all.
jtm said on 8/Oct/12
very strange that he was clearly taller than matthew broderick in several pictures.
Wrestler said on 4/Oct/12
Saw him today working on Foxcatcher. Short. Definitely not 5'8". 5'6" is more likely.
John said on 30/Sep/12
I'm just watching him in the scene in movie Collateral where she stands beside Tom Cruise in a elevator. Mark looks up to a few inches shorter than Tom in that scene. Which seems to add some weight to the 5'6" theory for Mark.
Yaspaa said on 28/Sep/12
He can't be taller than Downey surely.

To Emessdee:
RDj and Jeremy Renner always wear Shoe-lifts. RDJ mostly 3 inches.
Emessdee said on 27/Aug/12
No more than 170cm, and probably considerably shorter. He's noticeably shorter than the diminutive Robert Downey Jnr and Jeremy Renner in The Avengers.
ME said on 29/Jul/12
I've never met him, but in Just Like Heaven, he was a only little bit taller than Reese Witherspoon, who is 5'2. She was probably wearing heels, but definitely not 5'8
BigT said on 27/Jul/12
168 cm max, I´m with you on this one Mr. R
the shredder said on 14/Jun/12
Yea I'm with 5'7 , he can look that height
Ciccio said on 12/Jun/12
No more than 5'7, actually. I think he wears lifts, as well as Robert Downey Jr., Tom Cruise and the most part of the shorts guys
Mr. R said on 8/Feb/12
Bakura, I tell the truth. Rob can vouch that I see celebs all the time, and that a number of my sightings prove to be true, i.e. Kiefer Sutherland, George Clooney, Jamie Foxx, etc. mark was at least two inches shorter than my 5-8 friend who could not believe that he was taller. I think he is a lift wearer.
Bakura said on 5/Feb/12
How do we know there's even any truth in Mr. R's statements at all? Like the majority of people on this site who *claim* to have met a person, he has no proof whatsoever he's actually met the guy. He could quite easily be making this all up as he goes along.
Shav said on 20/Jan/12
I met him a couple of years back, he was shorter then me and I am 5'9, I would say he would be 5'7 at the most... Perhaps even 5'6.
Mr. R said on 19/Jan/12
Thanks Cool. I know what I see.
Dmeyer said on 18/Jan/12
I met the Guy twice hé looked 3-3.5 in under me hé is about 5'8
Cool said on 18/Jan/12
I'm with Mr. R on this one. Mark is 5'6
the shredder said on 7/Jan/12
leonari , I think he is 5'8 , 5'6 is dumb , Mr.R needs hes eyes checked .
leonari said on 7/Jan/12
Shredder: Sure but 5'9" is pushing it.
the shredder said on 7/Jan/12
More of a chance of 5'9 then 5'6 ... Mr.R failed
Mr. R said on 7/Jan/12
Sorry Leonari, he is 5-6.
leonari said on 6/Jan/12
Mr.R: I like your posts but 5'6"?? Can't go with that. SORRY!
Mr. R said on 5/Jan/12
Mark is 5-6. When I met himm at a screening, he was at least two inches shorter than my 5-8 friend, who remarked that Mark is short.
linke said on 5/Jan/12
He looks 5'7 min,wont be surprised if he's 5'8.I dont buy 5'6 for him,too low.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 2/Jan/12
I agree with you 100% but its much more probable to under/over guess people if you never met them, than the opposite! :)
ANDREA[ITA] said on 21/Dec/11
If Mr R said he's 5'6 why should he lie, Rob? He met him and you didnt!
Editor Rob
it's very possible to under/over guess people.
jake, 1.82 m said on 19/Oct/11
He looks short to me and below the 5ft 8in range. I really don't think he's more than 171 cm. DiCaprio has 4 inches on him easily.
Sam said on 19/Oct/11
In their face-off in Zodiac, Ruffalo and Downey Jr. appear to be the same height
Mr. R said on 19/Oct/11
Mark is 5-6. I talked with him at a movie premiere.
Awesomimous said on 17/Oct/11
that picture was just taken from a bad angle. here is another picture from the same set:
Click Here

if we take into account the fact that downey is closer to the camera and upright, and ruffalo is farther away and slouching, you can deduce pretty easily that they're the same height. (that is not to mention the possibility that downey is wearing lifts)
Nick said on 12/Oct/11
in the new Avengers trailer, Robert Downey Jr had him in height, clearly 1,5-2 inches taller. either way, Mark is a very good choice for the role of Bruce Banner
Koalized said on 11/Sep/11
There is an interesing pic of him with Downey Jr, on the Downey jr page.
Even if Downey is clearly wearing lifts, I think that Mr R should be close to the truth.
jtm said on 6/Sep/11
i know he has bad posture but i still don't believe he is 5'8 and there has been enough evidence that downey is also not 5'8.
leonari said on 6/Sep/11
Rob: Thanks for the reply. I appreciate it. You are right he has rather bad posture... He doesn't seem to care looking shortish most of the time. That's cool. Great actor.
leonari said on 5/Sep/11
Rob: In your opinion is there a realistic chance that he could he be onl a strong 5'7? What do you say??
Editor Rob
a chance he dips under 5ft 8 yes, as low as 5ft 7 I'm not sure on that one. At times his posture might make him look that mark.
leonari said on 4/Sep/11
AI: yeah Robert Downey is wearing his best lifts. He loves hi top sneakers and packs them with 3 inches which give him 2 inches. Those guys are probably identical in height. Just shows what lifts can do....
Ted Hansen said on 9/Aug/11
A stretch for 5'6.
Mr. R said on 2/Aug/11
In a lot of those pics, he is CLEARLY wearing built up shoes so that he is not shrimped by his co-stars like Leo.
Mr. R said on 2/Aug/11
Mark is 5-6. Even my 5-8 friend remarked how short he was.
jake said on 27/Jul/11
To me he really looks shorter than this. He is 4 inches shorter than DiCaprio in Shutter Island. He is 5ft7.5 (171 cm).
PHL said on 16/Jul/11
he would not even be a solid 5'8 so why still add 0.25? makes no sense. Those guys who dont have pics next to rob usually are overrated.
truth said on 13/Jul/11
short guy about 5ft6, we share the same birthday thought; November 22.
sam said on 8/Jul/11
rob i really think mark deserves a downgrade. I always thought he was around 167-170 and I was shocked to think he was 173; then I looked at all the comments and everyone seems to think the same. He really doesnt look anything like a solid 173 kind of guy.
Dmeyer said on 12/Jun/11
About 8 cm smaller than me in person

He's 5'7 at most.

so garner id 5'4" im the movie 13 going on the 30 he was 2 inches taller than her when she was barefoot. something does not make sense. i would say his height is correct and garner is around 5'7"
mcfan said on 6/Feb/11
This height needs serious adjustment. No, Ruffalo isn't that tall. He obviously wears lifts - another Cruise. I'd say his real height is 5'6-5:

5'7.37 said on 16/Jan/11
Rob, this guy must be 5'6, there's a scene in Colateral where Tom Cruise and Ruffalo are standing next to the other in an elevator, and Cruise is clearly taller by 2" in that scene, Tom must be 5'6 at his best, so by wearing 2" lifts he would look that tall, if Ruffalo were 5'8 Crusie should have used 4.5" boxes to stand that tal, no way man.
Mr. R said on 30/Nov/10
He is 5-6. I will fight anyone to the death on this one!
linke said on 30/Nov/10
5'6 is too low tbh.He seemed same height as jennifer garner but he had a minor part in the movie called as studio 54,where his character asks wheter he should wear platforms since he's too short.5'7ish my guess.
Mr. R said on 29/Nov/10
Disagree will you Rob? Both Opl and Daisy are supporting my eyewitness account. Mark is 5-6!
Opl said on 28/Nov/10
I'm barely 5'7 and I had slippers on standing 2 feet away from Mark and he was not taller than me...and he had his shoes on. So try 5'5 or best case 5'6.
Daisy said on 27/Oct/10
I'm 5'5 and when I met him he seemed pretty short!
I was wearing converses and he was wearing some classy hollywood shoes.. So yeah.. Probably 5'7 at the most? D:
Adlai said on 5/Jul/09
With 5'3 Julianne Moore in heels. Has about half an inch on her... Meaning he can't really be much more than 5'7.

Bo said on 27/Jan/09
Im watching We Dont Live Here Anymore right now and he looks 5'9-5'10 in boots, so 5'8 is probably right
Clay said on 13/Nov/08
Leung thats bizzarre I think Collateral is where he looked tallest. 13 going on 30 and Just like Heaven is where he looks short. Probably in lifts on the street, who knows could be 5'8.5-5'9.
glenn said on 13/Nov/08
ill settle for 5-8 possibilty.but still stand by 5-10 too.
leonari said on 12/Nov/08
Joe: a gift? Whats that suppose to mean? ?? I don't understand...
5'6" is not a possibility. I say he is even 5'9" but has this" short look" going on. I can't explain it.
dmeyer said on 12/Nov/08
i met the guy he is 5 ft 8 no more
glenn said on 12/Nov/08
he looks 5-10 in the street.does he wear lifts i dont know?.he isnt shorter than 5-8 if he is a lift monger.and is most likely 5-9 to 5-10.i dont care what anyone says about me.i laugh,cause i actually meet these celebs repeatedly.maybe one day ill get praised for this.5-6 is beyond absurd.sorry.and whats more sickening is i have photo proof showing this.just like colin farrel looking the 5-11 i claim in my pic,yet everyone takes a blind eye.
joe said on 11/Nov/08
I met him at the Toronto film Festival this year - if he's 5'6" that would be a gift. He's very short, but he is an extremely nice person!
leonari said on 11/Nov/08
Ruffalo is not that short! He is one of those guys who gives a way shorter appearance. Don't ask me why.
Clay said on 10/Nov/08
I could see this guy being a cover-up 5'6.5-5'7.
mcfan said on 4/Oct/08
I just saw a horrible movie called "Blindness." This guy isn't no way 5.25 inches taller than Julianne Moore. They were both wearing normal shoes and it looked only 3.5 inches max (and I mean max) difference between the two of them.

The confusing thing is he looked Robert Downey's height in "Zodiac" and we know he is 5'8.
joy said on 21/Sep/08
I would say Mark is 5'6 Dustin Hoffman 5'4 and Robert Redford 5'9. People always look taller in film. Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster always looked closer in height than they actually were.
anonymous said on 13/Aug/08
doesnt glenn always seem to overestimate everyones height here on this site?

this is a picture from gettyimages were Mark is standing head to head with robert downey jr who is listed as 5'8 on celebheights. Think both are correct a
Click Here
anonymous said on 9/Mar/08
I think Mark Ruffalo is a lift wearer both in movies and in person. Either that or he has a supernatural ability to change heights.

"In The Cut" ... he looked significantly taller in scenes with Meg Ryan, but a 5'8 guy would nearly look a 5'7 person (Ryan's height) eye-to-eye. Yet in publicity pics with Joachim Phoenix, he looks 2" shorter than Phoenix, and Phoenix is no more than 5'9.

Best bet is that Ruffalo is Tom Cruise's and Sean Penn's height (5'7ish), but like the ladder actors, owns very convenient celebrity footwear.
Lmeister said on 7/Mar/08
Unless Ruffalo is wearing lifts he is at least 5ft9 Click Here
based on this pic. Diego Luna is 5ft10 in shoes 5ft8 without and Gael Garcia Bernal is around 5ft6 tops. Maybe you could change these heights.
glenn said on 4/Mar/08
exactly shredder.5-8 is absurd.
the shredder said on 3/Mar/08
I agree with Glenn ! ... This guy is not as low as 5'8 ! ... 5'10 barefoot is a little hard to see , but I honestly see him 5'9 barefoot ! ... 5'8.5 minimum though !
glenn said on 19/Feb/08
never mind 5-6.he isnt even as short as 5-8.i saw 5-10.he had dress shoes on.
chris175 said on 18/Feb/08
glenn is 100 percent right here, there is no way this guy is 5-6!! thats a complete joke, i think he could very well be 5-10
Braden said on 2/Feb/08
yeah he's glenns height 5'8"
canadian girl said on 2/Jan/08
hes definally the same height as glenn. 5'8 for sure.
Gago said on 27/Dec/07
Rob has him right, may be 174 or 5'8.5,and he looked around the same height as Joaquin Phoenix in his last movie with him.
glenn said on 27/Dec/07
how the hell is he the same height as me? he is leaning in for ****s sake.look at his ****ing shoulders! how does a 5-6 or a 5-8 man do that?its a photo and not the complete photo at that.guess the way it was scanned cuts part of the pic out.he was 5-10 stretched out.5-9 with a slouch.the same argument for 2 years on any 5-10 celeb.and some 5-11ers.they appear 2 inches shorter sometimes with posture.of course he could be wearing lifts,but i dont buy that as an excuse for everything.
JJ said on 27/Dec/07
Even if he was wearing lifts, he's the exact same height as glenn in that pic! so, maybe your judgement in him being 5'6 is accurate.
dmeyer said on 25/Dec/07
if glenn saw him at 5'ish he was defenetly in lifts since he looked under average in person between 57.75 to 5'8.25
glenn said on 25/Dec/07
mr-t.people here think otherwise.
Mr. T said on 23/Dec/07
Yeah, this guy never comes across as short even with his posture. Lifts? Doubt it.
Anonymous said on 11/Nov/07
Ok here's the deal.Shane seing Mark Ruffalo on the beach as i assume is the only place where you can windsurf is not a good basis for a ground level. He's standing on sand! come on! Shane can not completely discern his height clearly on a surface
that wouldnt provide equal footing. He may have seen Ruffalo during some times on spots which are much in a higher level then his.

With regards to him being seen as a 5'10er. it's out of the question glenn. your
pic with him doesnt show it. he only gives a quarter of an inch taller than you Sorry to say. Gonzalo here may have just provided me with a credible evidence that Robert Redford who is a legit 5'10er towers 2 inches over Ruffalo. I still say 5'8 at least a real one not like cruise who is actually struggling to reach it.
glenn said on 11/Nov/07
read what shane says.he isnt smaller than 5-9.and seemed 5-10 to me.
Anonymous said on 10/Nov/07
This guy is kinda tricky! My initial impression on him when i first saw his movies was a 5'7-5'7.5 guy. In Collateral, he looked almost the same level with Tom Cruise who may have been wearing lifts that time. But cruise(who in my opinion is only 5'7 flat) is known for wearing lifts, so he could be cheating 2 inches from Mark Ruffalo, assuming Ruffalo has no lifts on but only a pair of 1-inched sole shoes. So i say he is a legit 5'8-5'8.25 guy, no more, no less. Because if he was 5'9, he should have towered over cruise by an inch with shoes on but then he failed to do so to project a strong 5'9ish guy. Good estimate on him!
Shane said on 18/Oct/07
'Worked with him for several months on "Windtalkers". He was a great guy and always had an easy-going posture. Went windsurfing with him and he was a solid 5'9" or so without shoes. He always seemed casual so it is easy to see why his height might be difficult to discern.

Glenn, Your credibility is definitely not in question here, we all trust you atleast i can say that about me but the thing is i seriously doubt he can be more than 175 and even 175 is a little shady...its possible you might have seen him with lifts and 1 inch lifts are no big deal for hollywood celebs.
dmeyer said on 24/Aug/07
cruise looked 0.5 in taller than statham and 2 in taller than ruffalo in colaterral

i met him he was a solid 3 in under me at 5'11
OutBenchThis said on 24/Aug/07
He's taller than Glenn..only just though..looks 5'8.5" with Glenn but is slouching so maybe 5'9.5" it's hard to say he's slouching???
glenn said on 24/Aug/07
i dont get people on this guys constantly ignore my pics and my guaging.look at the pic above.he was 5-10 in dress shoes.stop judging from dvds.
leonari said on 23/Aug/07
I think this is accurate. Hell he could be 5'8.5" on the dot.
Bombay Rocker said on 23/Aug/07
He seems an average guy, his body structure i exactly same as mark wahlberg with less muscle mass...definitely not above 5 feet 9...he looked i think the same height or a little taller than jennifer garner in 13 going on 30.
Hilaryfan said on 24/May/07
he looked taller than jennifer garner in the film 13 going on 30 and jennifer garner is 175 .

timber said on 4/May/07
Mr. Rs sighting on 26/May/05 is pretty convincing as he had a 5'8 friend with him who corroborated his account that Ruffalo is 5'6. Ruffalo is more known now and is perhaps under pressure to appear taller and so wears lifts at premieres, etc. nowadays to get to 5'8. Just a thought...
Viper said on 21/Mar/07
This guy was freaking awesome in the new Zodiac movie. Just awesome.
MD said on 20/Mar/07
Mine aren't movie stills, they are premiere photos. It's possible Downey was wearing lifts, but they should be considered, nonetheless, especially since I keep hearing people say he looked taller than Downey in Zodiac. Now, that (i.e. movie heights) really doesn't matter.
glenn said on 20/Mar/07
what about that i met offence,nobody here did.meeting is better than movie stills.
MD said on 19/Mar/07
What about the pictures I posted? This dude has never looked over 5'8" to me.

the problem with alot of you is that you domt notice a slouch.raffalo has a bad slouch when i saw him.

5'8'' (173) , can't be 5'9''.In that picture you can see the truth, he tall same as Glen.
