American actor, best known for starring as Jason Bourne in The Bourne series, and for roles in Saving Private Ryan, The Martian, Good Will Hunting and The Departed. Matt himself said of his height, "I'm 5'10." in a MoviesOnline.ca interview and in 2013 an Autograph Hunter claimed that Damon told him: "I'm 5-10.5, maybe 5-11 if I totally stretch out".
In The Sun newspaper, when talking about Courage Under Fire he did mention that height: "A doctor told me later I could have shrunk my heart permanently. I am 5ft 11in and went down to 135lbs from my usual weight, between 173lb and 176lbs. It didn't do me any good." He also mentioned in 2016 "I weigh probably 190 pounds right now, and I weighed 139 in [Courage Under Fire]."

If Mat Damon is 5' 10" I'll eat my hat. He's 5' 2" tops. Hollywood people are tiny. Short, little people, with big bobble-heads.
You have got to be trolling right?
Rising174cm said on 1/Jan/21 Damon claiming 5'10.5" at least 3 times tells me he likely measured that in shoes meaning 5'9.25" or 5'9.5" (more likely 5'9.5".) He might be 5'10.5" if Affleck was really 6'3.5". Actually, seeing this photo, I understand why Damon upgraded Affleck to 6'4"! Click Here Or even this still from the video in which Damon claimed 5'10.5" after Affleck called him short: Click Here
Incidentally, I remember saying Damon looked 5'9.5" in this photo back when Ledger looked 6'1": Click Here Ledger is listed at 6'0.5" now. That's not the first time he looked 5'9" either. With self-proclaimed 170 cm Christoph Waltz: Click Here I'll give him 5'9" with Waltz after accounting for Damon having about 1 cm less footwear. I know that pic favors Waltz, but look up a bunch of photos from the event and you'll see what I mean.
Slim 6'1" said on 30/Dec/20 Weak 5’10” 179cm straight out of bed 👍
Slim 6'1" said on 19/Dec/20 The full 5’10” is too high but just 176 is lowballing him
177 seems like the superb listing 👍
Gaspergoo said on 12/Dec/20 Seems like a legit 5'10"....
Waffle Hammer said on 11/Dec/20 If Mat Damon is 5' 10" I'll eat my hat. He's 5' 2" tops. Hollywood people are tiny. Short, little people, with big bobble-heads.
cmillz said on 28/Nov/20 177cm out of bed, 175cm at a normal low
TheBat said on 18/Nov/20 Anywhere in the 176-177cm range is pretty much where Damon is.
Heightist999 said on 8/Nov/20 Looks 7-8 cm shorter than 184 cm Ledger in that photo, but looks like he might have some footwear advantage. Anyway, 176/177 cm guesses are bang on.
Slim 6'1@ said on 5/Nov/20 176.9CM to be precise at his low
TheBat said on 2/Nov/20 5'9.5" would be his afternoon height.
Juby said on 29/Oct/20 I re-watch lately The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum. In the first two films Matt Damon's character is often described as "5 ft 9 in" as Jason Bourne, as well as John Michael Kane on his passport.
I believe Matt is a little over that, 5 ft 9.5 ins maybe.
Jtm said on 27/Oct/20 5’8.75 would be a better listing and that’s on a good day. No way in a million years he’s 5’10 let alone 5’11 without help or when he isn’t cheating which is rare for him.
Jkiller said on 22/Oct/20 I take back my earlier guess, he must be close to 5'11 (180cm) honestly, he looks a few cms shorter than Christian Bale with similar footwear. Maybe 5'10.75 is a better listing.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 8/Oct/20 🎂🎁🎊🎈 Happy Birthday Matt! 🎈🎊🎁🎂
Congratulations to actor Matt Damon, who celebrates his BIG 5️⃣-0️⃣ today. Have a terrific half-century, Matt! 😉
Jkiller said on 30/Sep/20 I reckon 5'9.75
TheDon1528 said on 24/Sep/20 5'9.5"
Slim 6'1" said on 24/Sep/20 Edged by Clooney so 5’10”+ is impossible
Slim 6'1" said on 24/Sep/20 176-177cm
Ethan Sia said on 21/Sep/20 not 5’9 3/4 it’s okay if you have him at 5’9 3/4 rob. Matt Damon is Andy always 5’9 1/2 period
TheBat said on 18/Sep/20 I can see 5’9.5” for Matt Damon but not 5’9” flat. He’s only 5’10” right out of bed.
Sinclair said on 19/Aug/20 5’9.75” does seem the most appropriate fit for Damon. I found it interesting that Damon plays the Alain Delon character in The Talented Mr. Ripley (remake of Purple Noon) and both actors were probably the same height at peak. However, Jude Law plays the Maurice Ronet character in the Purple Noon remake and I bet Ronet was at least an inch taller than Law has ever been!
I really look forward to the day when Maurice Ronet gets his own page on this site. I feel Ronet would be a great addition to this site. Rob, can Maurice Ronet please be added sometime in the not too distant future?
Ebibs said on 14/Aug/20 Be 100% sure he is 174cm
And according to Google, they add 4 cm to the height, of course, which reaches 178 with shoes
Endritis5'10" said on 14/Aug/20 The man is 5foot10 178/5’10”
Slim 6'1" said on 7/Aug/20 45th percentile which is average or below average idk between the 2
Slim 6'1" said on 7/Aug/20 5 9 5/8 to be specific like 176.9cm
Slim 6'1" said on 6/Aug/20 Damon 177cm is not impossible, but no less than 176
Jtm said on 16/Jul/20 I wouldn't even go as high as 5'9 without help.
Tunman said on 14/Jul/20 Well,doesn't that make him only 5'9?Obviously he's not that short.But watching Monuments Men he could be 1-1.25"smaller than Clooney in some scenes.Was Clooney still at his peak by that time?Not sure!I still think the most likely figure would be 5'9.5" but anything between those 176-77 marks could be argued imo.
Tunman said on 12/Jul/20 Rob Click Here
I think that the upper pic reflects the true difference between Ledger and Matt.Personally I see a solid 3" perhaps even 3.25".Maybe 5'9.5"is the best compromise?He can be right between 5'9 and 10.
3.5 inches between them I'd have thought. Actually Damon held up a bit better than Gibson did with Heath.
MarcusTheSwede said on 3/Jul/20 This needs a downgrade Big time. Look att Matt with 173,4 cm James Corden they basicly same height and that even show Brad Pitt isnt over 174cm at best either Click Here
Greg said on 25/Jun/20 Reminds me of my 5’9 range friend who’s also claimed 5’10.5 and 5’11 interesting 🤣🤣🤣
cmillz said on 24/Jun/20 @Junior
He didn’t look over 5’9 next to Tom Brady.
Costa said on 9/Jun/20 Funny thing is I just saw him a full body shot with Franka Potente in Bourne Identity and it looked like she was at least his height. He was wearing thick work boots and she was wearing a normal shoe. I’m wondering if he’s like 5’8” and a half or something.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Jun/20 Matt Damon can look 5'9 but he isn't that low. 5'9 1/2 for worst. But the entire 5'11 totally stretch out is BS.
cmillz said on 3/Jun/20 Damon is 5’9 and Wahlberg is 5’7
JoBlo said on 24/May/20 If he’s 5’9” Mark Wahlberg is 5’6”. There’s no way they are almost the same height.
Bwk said on 21/May/20 Shortest looking 5'10" guy I've ever seen.
Vexacus said on 11/May/20 5'9 and 3/4 . Reasonable rounding up. I think the only fraction that I would claim is "a half". Other fractions could make you sound weird or insecure.
JohnMoore-162cm said on 9/May/20 5ft9 1/2" is cool
Spencer said on 22/Apr/20 5'10"
cmillz said on 12/Apr/20 If anything Damon could be a weak 5’9.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Apr/20 Damon once played a 6ft 4 South African rugby player...he can act tall too 🤩 But you know, come to think of it, when I watched Invictus, I did think Damon was running a bit funny...I wonder why 🤔 🤫
I’m sorry but Invictus was garbage and Damon was an abominable casting choice for Francois Pienaar. Paul Bettany or Alexander Skarsgaard would have crushed it
viper said on 27/Mar/20 I think it's good evidence Clooney is
Damon is 5-9
Dmeyer said on 26/Mar/20 Has a hard Time looking less than 2-2,5in under 181 kimmel , i that wideo looks 5-8,75
Celebheights 6'1.5" said on 25/Mar/20 Matt Damon looks to be the same height as George Clooney in this photo:
Animus said on 14/Mar/20 He looks shorter these days than he did as a young man because he is bulkier now. He was around 170lbs in his 20s, I'd say, and now he's around 190lbs.
TheBat said on 6/Mar/20 Consistently looks 5'9.5", sometimes 5'9" flat.
viper said on 28/Feb/20 Damon is absolutely no taller than 5-9 Max
Brad Pitt is 5-10. Really at most
Bradley said on 27/Feb/20 Pitt is 5' 10 and 1/4" tall. If you think he's 1/2" shorter than Pitt I suggest you watch the Ocean films ...Pitt owns him more than that easy in every scene or cast shot.
Jtm said on 27/Feb/20 pitt looked below 5'10 with Duchovny, tarantino, davis ,Paltrow etc.
Peter175 said on 26/Feb/20 Pitt at below 5'10? You're having a laugh.
There is no chance Pitt is under 5'10.5. He looks well over an inch on Damon
Damon looks legitimately short though, looking at him at times I can't believe he's over 5'8.5 but after everything I've seen of him he looks at least 176cm and MIGHT be this listing. 5'9.5 is my guess
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/20 Actually Kimmel does manage to pull off near 6ft there
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 17/Feb/20 Rob, Click Here don't you think Kimmel look 1.75" on Matt?
It could be near that
lensy said on 8/Feb/20 he looks 5'8 and three quarters in most films he's in. very stocky
viper said on 26/Jan/20 Clooney is 5-9.5-5-10 and Pitt is 5-10
Damon is 5-9 Max
Hijoputamus said on 26/Jan/20 @Tyler, he’s the shortest 5ft10 you’ve ever seen and you rate him as a 5ft10 in the morning? That makes perfect sense...
Unless he loses 2 inches during the day...
Brad is under 5ft10 barefoot. Watch the pics beside 5ft8ish Gwyneth both barefoot.
Tyler 5'11.5" said on 23/Jan/20 Matt Damon is literally the shortest looking 5’10” guy I’ve ever seen in my life, but I must say he fares extremely well against guys like Brad Pitt, Leo DiCaprio and George Clooney who are all near or legit 5’11 guys. I have to give him 5’10 morning height for sure.
Spencer said on 18/Jan/20 5'9.25"
viper said on 11/Jan/20 He's 5-9 Max. Not over it
Peter175 said on 9/Jan/20 He's a strange case. Shortest looking average height guy ever.
At times given his fashion style and proportions he can legit look like a flat 5'8 guy.
But he's clearly above 5'9"
Also 5'10" is not tall on any planet
Camitori said on 9/Jan/20 First of all excuse my english cuz im spanish, second, how much do you think matt damon weight in Good Will Hunting??
If you consider for Courage Under Fire Damon's weight was like 140 pounds, he looked maybe 160 range
Nik Ashton said on 5/Jan/20 @ Hijoputamus - How tall was Heath Ledger?
Hijoputamus said on 31/Dec/19 5ft8ish barefoot
actionboy said on 28/Dec/19 Totally agree on this measurements!
Lazar99 said on 29/Jul/19
5ft9 1/4 is better, this guy doesn't look almost 5ft10.
5ft9 1/2 earlier in the day, 5ft9 3/4 is just too much IMO.
actionboy said on 28/Dec/19 @Rob: A legit 177 cm man can look even tall at times and this guy is never over 5'9.25 . Almost 5'10 is too tall. This really one needs to be downgrade
Glash said on 13/Dec/19 Good height
Aar?n R said on 4/Dec/19 Rob is he a lift wearer? He looks as tall as christian bale in ford vs ferrari
I watched all the Bourne films...he's not a guy I'd accuse of wearing lifts in public.
I've yet to see Ford vs Ferrari, but Bale at times can seems 5ft 11 in films, but then he's a very good actor, if he wants to act shorter he will.
Damon once played a 6ft 4 South African rugby player...he can act tall too 🤩 But you know, come to think of it, when I watched Invictus, I did think Damon was running a bit funny...I wonder why 🤔 🤫
Nik said on 1/Dec/19 @ cmillzz - At 176 cm he would be average in the USA and at 175 cm he would be average in the UK!
According to Rob he is on the high side of average!
viper said on 12/Nov/19 5-9 MAX and I dont rule out 5-8.5
cmillz said on 12/Nov/19 @Nik
I mean my estimate is only 2cm lower than Rob’s, so it’s not a huge difference. Either way, he (Damon) is merely average in height.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/Nov/19 Jared Leto were under listed and Matt Damon is over listed. They're both 176cm.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Nov/19 Anything 5'9 1/4-5'9 1/2 not more. 5'10 1/2 low Jason Issacs is not below 3cm taller than Damon. Damon low i have no surprise he could be 5'9 1/4 but not less.
Nik Ashton said on 1/Nov/19 @ cmillzz - Rob thinks he is pushing 5’10”!
cmillz said on 21/Oct/19 @Nik
if you consider a guy who’s 5’9 at most to be “quite tall”, then sure.
Hijoputamus said on 20/Oct/19 Bradley, when Brad doesn’t wear lifts
Bradley said on 18/Oct/19 Just look at him with Pitt and Clooney...sorry Matt, nice try, you are not 5' 10" bro.
ASG said on 16/Oct/19 He managed to hold well against 6’2.25 Affleck at their Oscar speech around 20 years ago. Must’ve been wearing lifts or something
Nik said on 16/Oct/19 He's quite tall! Matt can have his 2425th comment!
pov said on 4/Oct/19 No way he’s 177cm. He wouldn’t constantly get descirbed as short otherwise. He’s not short, but does look slightly below average. Looks a solid 5”8 to me
Jtm said on 3/Oct/19 I still think that video with Tom Brady confirms his real height. Brady looks like he's crouching down when they are taking a picture together so he doesn't completely tower over Damon. Pay attention at the wide shot when they are both shaking hands.
Jtm said on 3/Oct/19 Maybe Affleck keeps making the short jokes because Damon is trying very hard to make the public believe he's 5'10-5'11 when that's far from the truth.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 27/Sep/19 @ Nik - It's all relative! There's a 4-and-a-half inch height difference between Matt and Ben, and if I was looking at a person of 4ft8.5, I, too, would think that person's incredibly short. In the unlikely event that he/she wasn't a child, I'd be right!
However, it is rather patronising to say that about anybody 🖕, except in jest, and common sense tells us that a man of 5ft9.75 is anything but short.
That's what Matt gets from me today - 5ft9.75. 😁🌝
Nik Ashton said on 26/Sep/19 His best friend Ben Affleck claims that Matt is incredibly short! This is not so!
Maybe he watched Downsizing and saw the 1cm tall version of Matt!
Jackson said on 13/Sep/19 Can’t be smaller than what he’s listed on here. Seems hard to belive he’d measure under 5’9 3/4” . Him and Bale have equal footwear.
Greg said on 31/Aug/19 @Dmeyer 5’10 guys can look tallish with the right proportions thought I would class a strong 5’10 guy like 5’10.5-5’10.75” as tallish. Guys who are 5’9 range just look average.
Pierre said on 24/Aug/19 Click Here Matt and James Corden
Click Here James Corden and 5"8' Michael (Douglas)
cmillzz said on 15/Aug/19 I’d place better odds on him being 5’8.75 than 5’9.75.
Pierre said on 14/Aug/19 Matt damon is around the same heigh as James Corden = Click HereClick HereClick Here James Corden tiptoeing next to Samuel Anderson slouching looks max the same height as 5"8' Rob next to Samuel straight Click HereClick Here .Do the maths Matt damon is very probably under 5"9' ,around 5"8' .
Dmeyer said on 7/Aug/19 For some reason 5'10-10,25 guys look solid average on some occasion tall if surounded by short people but 5'9,5-9,75 dont its just 0,5 in différence
Greg said on 5/Aug/19 @cmillzz he’s at least 5’9 there was a skit with Jimmy Kimmel and some football player and he seemed 2-2.5 inches shorter than him he might be just over 5’9 but not over I would be surprised if he was 5’9.5 or taller. I’m more inclined to believe Adam sandler is 5’9.75”
cmillzz said on 5/Aug/19 I think he’s no taller than 5’9. Not sure about 5’8.5, but he doesn’t even strike me as a strong 5’9 guy.
Johan 185 cm said on 3/Aug/19 At 4.17 when they take the pic together I wouldn't have said 7 inches difference between Matt and Tom. Looks more 6 inch range but he is definetly not above this looked close to 3" shorter than Heath Ledger.
Lazar99 said on 29/Jul/19 5ft9 1/4 is better, this guy doesn't look almost 5ft10.
5ft9 1/2 earlier in the day, 5ft9 3/4 is just too much IMO.
184guy2 said on 30/Jun/19 Tom had a clear 6'' on Matt
177cm it's ok
cmillzz said on 28/Jun/19 He might measure 5’9.5” very early in the day, but in actual truth probably is around 175cm in the evening.
TheBat said on 26/Jun/19 5'9.5" max from what I can tell.
cmillzz said on 21/Jun/19 flat 5’9 at most
John wilson said on 18/Jun/19 People 1.77 cm is not short! Take a ruler put it next to the wall on a level floor, mark it and you will be surprised.
If I have to go by that, the real 1.80 cm is taller than 90 of the men I encounter outdoors.
My guess for matt will be 1.77 to 1.77.8 cm and in the evening no less than 1.76.5
khaled taban said on 18/Jun/19 A full 5'10" looks tallish on screen,this man looks shorter than 5'10".
He is 5'9.25", maybe 5'9.5" but never 5'10"
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jun/19 @Baltomire5'9.5 Then Jimmy Kimmel will be 5'10.5" classic and 5'11 max.
Baltomire5'9.5 said on 29/May/19 Come on Rob! Almost 5'10?? This guy is 5'9 classic 5'9 guy like 5'9.5 max
ggangsta said on 22/May/19 I think its time to downgrade him to 176.5 cm that is his real height.
cmillzz said on 21/May/19 I was honestly shocked to see how “short” he looked in that video with Brady and Kimmel. 5’9 flat is the most he might be.
Mance Rayder said on 16/May/19 Looked like a strong 5'8 with Tom Brady
viper said on 9/May/19 Yep, he looked 5-8 range with 6-4 Brady.
It's always been so obvious he was 5-9 max.
I've always thought he could be 5-8 range and with Brady confirms it
Jtm said on 4/May/19 5'8 range with brady.
Get Real said on 3/May/19 Look at the difference in height between Damon and To Brady in this clip Click Here
Logan M Barringer said on 2/May/19 A little shy of average. About a half inch shorter than your average man.Still a pretty good height.
c-mo said on 1/May/19 178cm seems more realistic
ulaix said on 19/Apr/19 As I said 5'9.5 max. A legit 177/177.5 cm looks taller and in movies can look tall at times...
TheBat said on 15/Apr/19 Almost 5'10", but not quite though. Good listing from Rob.
cmillzz said on 15/Apr/19 strong 5’9” perhaps (176ish), never a 5’10 guy.
Jammes said on 28/Mar/19 I guess 5'10 is what most actors will claim to be if they are slightly shorter
RolyFlo said on 7/Mar/19 Damon was never above 176 cm
Fox said on 24/Feb/19 Barefeet Matt Damon with Don Cheadle (171.5) here: Click Here
If Cheadle's listing is correct, Damon does not look taller than 5'9
What do you think @Rob?
He seems like he would be a couple of inches taller than Don there.
Bobby 178cm said on 23/Feb/19 if you see Damon during the Jason Bourne series, he can give off a 5'10-5'11 impression. I think he's gotta be a minimum of 5'10 flat to pull that off.
Original said on 27/Dec/18 Original said on 26/Jul/17
Damon- 176.5 cm
Clooney- 178.5cm peak, 178 or even 177.5 current
Pitt- 178 cm or 178.5 cm
Andy Garcia- 175 cm (maybe slightly less currently)
+ 1 cm.
Yang (5ft 8 Chinese men) said on 27/Dec/18 He is around 5ft 9 half like 176.5cm I would say.. About half inch less than average mens height 5ft 10 177.7cm.. Yes, he seems little bit taller than solid 5ft 9 men & Women as he took nice picture with my Vietnamese friend whose height is solid 5ft 9 which is considered to be tall comparing wirh other vietnamese men. BTW, he is cute, handsome and has gorgeous eyes like Zac Efron.... He is one of the actor I would love to meet in a person to take picture with........
B.M.A said on 20/Dec/18 his around 175cm.
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Dec/18 The problem is we can't see Corden's heels in that photo since they're covered by his pants. I see Corden leaning in and slouching a bit. Samuel might be dropping some height in his legs with Corden, but I can't tell for sure in that shot. I agree Rob doesn't look to be forcing his posture, but whether he's dropping more height than Samuel is something you'd have to ask him. But I honestly only see Damon about 2 cm or an inch taller than Corden in that part of the video so if Corden is about 5'8" or 173 cm then I see Damon 5'9" or 176 max with him.
Pierre said on 15/Dec/18 Rob has an advantage of 0.25 inch but the rear heel of James is for me something like 2 inches over the floor and his front heel is probably naturally a little bit on the tiptoe then...James does not really break his posture here,then we can talk about Rob's posture too,Rob does not force his posture next to Samuel.
Rising - 174 cm said on 14/Dec/18 You can't see in that photo if Corden is tip-toeing. If he is, it's only one foot, but you can see Corden slouching himself/leaning in and he may be at a bit of a camera disadvantage. Corden 172 cm there or looks 2.5" shorter, but without the disadvantage and Rob's 1/4" footwear advantage over Samuel, it's easy to see him at Rob's height as he's listed. With that said, I agree Damon is max 1.5" taller. Timberlake isn't 5'9"-5'10" either. He's at least 5'11".
Pierre said on 12/Dec/18 Click Here watch since 0:11 to 0:24 =difference imo =max 1.5 inch between Matt and James Corden .Now James on tiptoe next to Samuel Anderson who is looking downward = Click Here .Now Rob not on tiptoe next to samuel who is looking upward= Click Here .
jafdf said on 26/Nov/18 looks shorter than Justin Timberlake and Justin has supposedly been described as 5-9 to 5-10 to a person who supposedly met him
Annonymous said on 24/Nov/18 You can tell by his weight that he's not near 5'11. 5'9.25-5'9.5.
B M said on 22/Nov/18 This is a tough one, he always looked around 5'10 to me.
James694 said on 20/Nov/18 Could he be 5'9 1/4 to 5'9 1/2 I notice him and I have a similar built height wise and I measure usually between 5'9-5'9 1/2 throughout the day depending on what I do. Though again 5'9 1/4-5/9 3/4 is only a half inch difference. Funny thing is a few guys listed at 5'9 3/4 on here seem like my height and other guys give a tallish impression.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Oct/18 To be generous i would give Damon 5'9 5/8 (176.8) although the lowest he clear 5'9 3/8 (176.2) to me.
Bobby 5'10 said on 19/Oct/18 @FM
Nah, that looks about 2 inches, Damon is pretty much 5'10, more or less, but he's stocky. So he looks shorter than he's listed.
CDS said on 11/Oct/18 Ftr, in case it hasn't already been pointed out, his buddy and regular co star, Ben Affleck, I think on the tonight show, said he was 5'8". Now granted, that was in high school, so he could've grown a little. Honestly, by going back and watching those early pre stardom films like, school ties, I'd say he s about 5'8.5" to 5'9" absolute tops, and has been a consistent lift wearer, post "Bourne identity", especially after prolly observing his co star brad Pitt, in "oceans 11"!??😂
Gleb said on 5/Oct/18 HE LOOKS 5'9.5'' TO ME.5'10'' IS FOR THE AUDIENCE.
Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Oct/18 Corden looks 5'8" to me in general, but maybe not over since Mario Lopez was taller on 2 occasions so I'd guess Damon looks around 5'9" with him. I can't see him under 5'9", but I've been surprised that he can look around that mark more than I initially thought. Certainly with Robin Williams.
FM said on 25/Sep/18 Rob, what do you think of this photo Click Here? Here he is with 6’ Christian Bale. Could he be closer to 5’9” than 5’10”?
I wouldn't guess he looked 5ft 9 with Bale, but taller.
Pierre said on 23/Sep/18 Matt looks a little bit taller than James Corden imo.James imo isn't a complete 5"8' more a strong 5"7'.I seem around 5"8',or a strong 5"8'
Rising - 174 cm said on 15/Sep/18 Damon doesn't look over 5'9.5" to me with Ledger: Click Here
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 10/Sep/18 I can see as low as 176cm but not lower.
Jtm said on 6/Sep/18 maybe in the morning with Shoes On he's this height.
Mick5 said on 30/Aug/18 I was expecting him to be 5’9 flat, like 1.75m but he seems more his height next to ledger in this pic
Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Aug/18 @berta: I think it's more likely he was measured in shoes. I'd imagine most measuring themselves would be the last thing on most people's mind upon waking up compared to making coffee, showering, walking their dog etc. Besides, 177 cm looks a bit high for Damon's evening height compared to James Corden, Christoph Waltz, Heath Ledger, Jude Law, Brad Pitt and Robin Williams, imo.
berta said on 2/Aug/18 he could be 179 out of bed. guy that claim 2 cm taller than there evening height may not lie. they just go with morning height. i think many people use their mporning height
Rising - 174 cm said on 22/Jul/18 @Rob: Yeah, they looked like Vans to me. I'm somewhat surprised because Damon usually wears 1" or more. I think it's more likely Waltz at 170 cm reveals others are shorter than they claim rather than him being taller since I trust claims in metric and claims that arguably look a little low more than vice versa. But if Waltz can look taller, I suppose whether he actually is taller is a moot point when comparing him to Damon. I'd still be pretty surprised if Damon is under 176 cm.
Damon at 176 does seem low to me, but I can understand the 9.5 mark being argued by many.
Rising - 174 cm said on 19/Jul/18 @Rob: I had guessed at least 1 cm difference, though I don't know the model of Damon's shoes for sure. With that said, Damon winds up not even looking 176 cm to me as I certainly don't see near a 6 cm difference in most pics. I know some think Waltz is taller than he claims, but if that's true, I think it must have been at his peak.
It seems like a Vans, so about 1cm disadvantage. Waltz is certainly a guy who has looked more than the 170cm low claim, at times 5ft 7.5-7.75 is a range he pulls off.
Rising - 174 cm said on 15/Jul/18 Looks like Matt Damon was very committed to Downsizing. In fact, it looks like he downsized himself with 170 cm Christoph Waltz! Click Here I know Christian Bale goes pretty far with method acting, but this is impressive! Seriously, Damon does look to have half inch type shoes similar to Vans so that disadvantage explains part of it, but you'd still expect at least a 2" difference and out of those 5 photos, the last photo is the only one I see anything near that. This is one of those comparisons where Damon doesn't really look over 5'9" with James Corden being another. I still think Damon is about 5'9.5", but I wouldn't guess him any taller after seeing this.
There's probably near 0.4 inch less footwear for Damon there.
Stephen Roth said on 21/Jun/18 I am watching a movie (True Grit) with Matt Damon in it.Has he had a partial foot amputation of the right foot? In one scene he is walking toward camera and we get a view of his feet. It appeared the right boot had no toes... You can tell if a boot or shoe has a foot in it by the bulk as the shoe bends as you step.
David J Rosenthal said on 12/Jun/18 Wow I always thought he was like five foot eleven
Tall Sam said on 22/May/18 @Bobby, I think Pitt has been established as someone who will occasionally sport subtle lifts to events, which can account for him suddenly looking like someone over six foot. Barefoot Damon and Pitt look just over an inch apart I believe.
Bobby said on 18/May/18 Okay, check it out, I found an image of Bradd Pitt and Matt Damon standing next to each with similar posture and a decent camera angle
Why does Pitt look 2 inches taller than Damon? If we grant that Pitt is exactly 5'11, then the difference should be no more than 1.25 inch. Unless Pitt is wearing elevator shoes or something, because if we grant that Damon is 5'10.75 in footwear, then Pitt has to be 6'1.75 in his footwear advantage. There's gotta be a discrepancy somewhere, maybe Damon is more 5'9.5 than 5'9.75.
Bobby said on 18/May/18 He doesn't look like he'd be a solid 177cm. The average guess has him under 177cm.
Borats Chicken said on 16/May/18 Rob, how tall would his wife be? 5'4?
Yeah that could be possible.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 15/May/18 If Andy Lau is 5'8 flat today i can see Damon fall below 177cm like 5'9.5" or maybe Damon had started to lost height.
Gleb said on 15/May/18 I see him as a typical 177 sm guy.That is about it.178 sm(5'10'') -no way!
Ar2mA2 said on 28/Apr/18 1.77 is fine for him
EltonAs said on 25/Apr/18 Rob he is beteween 175 and 176 cm! Another upgrade actor...
cmillzz said on 23/Apr/18 Yeah he is a strong 176 cm guy, so pretty much like 5'9.5"
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 13/Apr/18 How long would you all guess his head is, along with his eye level? He’s known for having a big forehead, so I would guess that he has a 10” inch face, with his eye level being at least 5” inches long.
I think it is possible a bit over 9.5 inches for Damon's head
varun said on 23/Feb/18 i doubt he's anything more than 5ft 9.5 in.
Gleb said on 20/Feb/18 I think he is the fellow exactly 5'10'' in the morning(No more),who loses a half of an inch by evenings 5'9.5'' That is about it.
Conan said on 14/Feb/18 I'm 5 ft 9 3/4 (177.2 cm) so Matt Damon is tall as me
Junior Hernandez said on 5/Feb/18 Damon is not over 5'9.5" at his lowest. 5'10.5" claim is a day dream.
Paul NS (6ft0.5) said on 22/Jan/18 Smiles, that's really unlikely. He's not even at an age where I'd say he's shrunk.
Smiles03 said on 20/Jan/18 He could had been 5'10 or 5'11 when he was younger
HonestSlovene said on 26/Dec/17 I agree on 5'9.5". 5'10" range in regular shoes.
Slim 186 said on 14/Dec/17 5'9.5" is a better listing.
Gleb said on 12/Dec/17 I can see him as being around 5'10.He appears quite shorter because of his stocky build and frame.
Brad said on 4/Dec/17 I'm sure the 5' 10"ers Pitt and Clooney are laughing. When they walk into the casinos Matt sure has them in the height department. Another height fibber, file under Frank Stallone, Marky n da G-ster.
The Shredder said on 4/Dec/17 He claims Ben is like 6'4".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Dec/17 Rob you should check this out!
Editor Rob: Good to see Matt still persisting with the 5ft 10.5 claim 🙂
The Shredder said on 2/Dec/17 Waltz 5'8 , Damon 5'9.
Brad said on 1/Dec/17 His 5' 10.5" claim prooves (G), er proves he has a height complex. If he were that he'd be taller than Pitt and Clooney, he never is.
Ajay said on 30/Nov/17 Rob, look at this Click Here I see Christoph Waltz has 0.5 inch footwear advantage, but Damon still looks 5'9 range. Click HereClick Here I feel like there's only 2 inches between them barefoot.
The Shredder said on 27/Nov/17 Yep , he's closer to 5'9 after seeing those pics

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Nov/17 I think he's this mark at his low
Junior said on 10/Nov/17 Damon could be 5'9.5" and Clooney is 5'10.25" max
Slim 184 said on 8/Nov/17 5’9.5” maximum.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Nov/17 Rob, how tall do you think he'd be out of bed?
Editor Rob: 5ft 10.75 at most
Hijopotamus said on 6/Nov/17 Damon- 175 cm
Brad Pitt- 177
George Clooney- 177
Slim 6' said on 1/Nov/17 176.5 would be closer to the truth imo.
Oanh said on 25/Oct/17 Good listing for Matt. I can see him being 5'10" right out of bed.
Grit said on 25/Oct/17 Colin Farrell would no doubt edge him out
MD said on 23/Oct/17 I'd given Matt a strong 5'9" and not a centimeter more.
Gnaw said on 23/Oct/17 Bourne sucks. I saw all of them he is a fake 5'10 like the rest of them. Legit 5'10 guys who actually say they are 5'10 are the many rare heroes you see to this day
Slim 6' said on 21/Oct/17 176 would suit him better, legit 177-179(5'10ers) like Craig, Clooney and pitt would edge this guy out.
Brad said on 18/Oct/17 He loves wearing those boots that look like bricks. If he were 1/4" shy of 5' 10" he wouldn't be that owned by Pitt and Clooney.
Junior said on 14/Oct/17 Good lisitng here!
Brad said on 12/Oct/17 He gets owned by Pitt and Clooney on each Ocean. Not as listed.
way off said on 11/Oct/17 @HonestSlovene
Why would I be bitter?? Are you his PR that you are bitter that his real height is being exposed? Matt Damon is NOWHERE near 5'10 or even 5'9". He has extremely short legs and arms and a huge head, too. His entire built is like that of a dwarf IN PERSON. I saw him IN PERSON when he came to my university back in 2008 to campaign for Obama. He was wearing very thick soled brown ankle boots that were screaming "I am insecure about my height, and this is my way of trying to look and feel taller." They looked ridiculous on him. Like I said, I was close to 5'10" in my shoes and was still comfortably taller than him in his thick soled shoes. I give him 5'6" AT MOST.
Brad said on 10/Oct/17 1" this week......his silence on his "good friend" Weinstein is disgusting.
Rising - 174 cm said on 7/Oct/17 @Pierre: I agree, but only somewhat. I think Affleck is just about 6'2" even. Maybe not over, but I think close enough. His posture can be terrible, though as I've shown.
Pierre said on 5/Oct/17 @Rising= for me ben Affleck is shorter than his list
Gleb said on 4/Oct/17 He is about 5'10'' in the morning.My opinion.
Rising - 174 cm said on 4/Oct/17 Damon looks only an inch taller than Corden to me, but I think Damon's 5'10.5" claim is in shoes and he's really 5'9.5" barefoot. Corden should be 5'9" in shoes. They look closer in height than I'd expect, though. There are times Matt looks more 5'9"-5'9.25" and other times he looks more 5'10" so who knows? I think 5'9.5" is right give or take 1/4".
Btw, check this out: Click Here It's a recap of Affleck calling Damon short and Damon claiming 5'10.5" in his defense, but look at the first two stills. Even with Damon tanding straight and wearing a cap, Affleck towers him by 5" yet in the next, you see Affleck slouching and not much taller. This shows how much height Affleck can drop.
Anonymous said on 1/Oct/17 Lulz at Corden for claiming to be 5'9" and Matt Damon for claiming to be 5'10.5".
Their claims are consistent with one another, but inconsistent with real life encounters. As I've learned over the years the rule of 3 applies, especially when it comes to males. Whatever is claimed, generally subtract 2-3 inches from said claim. Matt is 5'8" and Corden is 5'6.5".
Peter181cm said on 28/Sep/17 He is 5'9/1.75m max. for me...
My dad is 5'9.25 (1.76m) And he look shorter..

MJKoP said on 23/Sep/17 Soije said on 20/Sep/17
5'7" Tom Cruise next to 5'6.5" Big G aka Glen Cunningham, looks taller than Corden in their interviews together. I'll let you guys do the math.
Editor Rob: Glenn was 5ft 8, he said it often enough on facebook (185 times) that it must be true!
At every opportunity imaginable, and then some!
"The Patterson-Gimlin film shows that almost all modern science is - hey did you guys know I'm 5-8? I really am. My friends all say I look taller. At least 5-9 or 5-10. Troll people on troll sites say troll things."
Bobby said on 21/Sep/17 His proportions don't do him justice, I'll say that much. I would edge out Damon though, as I'm a flat 5'10. Then again, in Jason Bourne, he does look 5'10, so really, he could be 177-178cm. Height loss varies from person to person, but I'd expect him to measure 5'10.25 to 5'10.5 in the morning. Solid to strong 5'10.

Rising - 174 cm said on 19/Sep/17 @Slim: I personally don't think Damon has lifts there. I agree he has short legs - I believe that's why some think he's short - but wearing all black can make you look slimmer and taller. In fact, that tends to be the case when you match your colors.
I will say that I believe Rob is more knowledgeable about height than I am and overall probably does a more accurate job than I would. But with that said, as long as we think and don't blindly follow - even in other people's areas of expertise - we're bound to disagree at times. It's also worth noting that Rob has to divide his attention between nearly 10,000 different heights. Naturally, visitors like you and I can focus on the heights we're most interested in while Rob is obviously limited in how much he can focus on any particular celeb without neglecting others.
Slim said on 17/Sep/17 Okay 70% are listed spot on, my estimation was quite harsh.... great job.
Editor Rob: estimates are accuracy would vary from individual to individual.
It's just a personal estimate ultimately, some folk might agree with 20% or 90%.
Slim said on 14/Sep/17 Rob, is there a lift in this?
I think there is, matt actually has stumpy legs, but his footwear gives a long leg illusion.
Rising - 174 cm said on 6/Sep/17 @Slim: I take random estimates with a grain of salt. But I do see Kimmel near 2" taller than Damon: Click Here I'd give Kimmel as listed, but take a quarter inch off Damon
@Willes: I'd probably agree with 70%, though I think more are overlisted than underlisted. There are some like Mario Lopez, Michael Douglas and Mel Gibson that I think clearly need a 1/2" downgrade after seeing them with so many who are listed similar height, but then there's some like Charles Bronson, Yngwie Malmsteen and Charles Barkley where I think Rob has them too low. Mostly, I find myself more or less in agreement with Rob or in the same ballpark. Actually, I think he does a remarkable balanced job overall. Sometimes I'll think he's wrong, but look at them more and see my initial impression was erroneous. Typically, when I'd say Rob is being generous, I'd say it's by a 1/4". Damon is an example of that, imo, but George Clooney much moreso as I do see Damon at 177 cm as plausible, even if much less likely than 176.5 cm, imo.
Willes188 said on 5/Sep/17 I meant to say nearly 10000 not 9000
Willes188 said on 5/Sep/17 This is how I see it on celebheights
As listed 70%
Rob has done a good job but there's always room for improvement and a bunch of celebs need a downgrade/upgrade more so the less famous ones who can look 1 inch taller or shorter than listed but that's because they aren't getting any attention at all, keep in mind that there's almost 9000 pages on celebheights it's impossible for one man to have track on all of them.
Slim said on 4/Sep/17 Rising - 174 cm said on 3/Sep/17
5'9" is possible for Damon, but the 5'8" stuff was always baseless and only comes from Damon's short legs and stocky build, which makes him look shorter. At least 5'10.5" in shoes, imo.
Read the comments from both jimmy's page, someone saw Kimmel up close and said he might even be as low as 179 and I compared Damon to Kimmel and they look 3-3.5 cm apart tops, it just goes to show that most celebs are a bit overlisted.
40% are over listed
40% are right on the money
20% are underlisted

robin said on 2/Sep/17 looked only an inch or so taller than the lady who played Marie in the Bourne movies.
Jtm said on 29/Aug/17 He was the same height as cate blanchett in the monuments men but blanchett looked like she had a little footwear advantage. If blanchett is the strong 5'8 listed here then Damon is maybe 5'9. If blanchett is 5'7.5 that I really think she is then Damon is 5'8 range.

Johno said on 28/Aug/17 For me, someone like Rob, who can measure 5'9 at times, has the same beight on Corden that Matt has. I believe Rob and Damon could get in to the same clothing if all limb proportions were equal in ratio to height.
Johno said on 28/Aug/17 What ever height Corden is, Matt is about 0.5 or 0.75-inches taller
blazer said on 26/Aug/17 Matt Damon is 5'9 I'm not sure where he gets 5'11 from. Maybe with shoes and morning height
Pierre said on 24/Aug/17 @Rising=go to James Corden's page if you want and look at my comment/pictures on 12/august/2017
Rising - 174 cm said on 23/Aug/17 @Pierre: Yeah, Matt really doesn't look more than about 5'9" or so with Corden, but I still give Damon about 5'9.5" overall. I think Corden and Damon were wearing the same boots as well as they were dressed alike. 176 cm is also possible for Damon as he could have measured in 3 cm shoes, which seems pretty typical for him.
Pierre said on 21/Aug/17 Click Here =Matt and James (Corden)
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Aug/17 Yeah, it does look pretty much a bang on 3 inch difference above, but in other pics, it can look more like 3.5": Click Here In fact, I thought Damon was 5'9.5" when I thought Ledger was 6'1". I was surprised seeing so many people claim Damon was the same height as 5'9" Andy Garcia in only comments. They've been closer at times, but for the most part, I've always seen Damon as clearly the taller of the two. However, the general discussion, estimates and Rob's listing on this page are all quite reasonable and plausible. There used to be a more significant minority who insisted Matt was only 5'8", likely due to his build. You rarely see that on this page nowadays. Most seem to recognize Damon as being pretty much as average as you can get and not short.
Slim 182 cm said on 8/Aug/17 Damon and ledger are exactly 3 inches apart, this would make ledger 6'0.75 or Damon 5'9.5.
Tom said on 7/Aug/17 Ive always seen him as 5'10"
John Davis said on 6/Aug/17 Nope 5ft 8.75 I'd say
Realist said on 6/Aug/17 I can't imagine him being over this height on the Bernie Mac show he looked about 5'9
Gleb said on 5/Aug/17 I think he is a weak 5'10'' guy in the morning,a bit less in the evening.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 3/Aug/17 Rob, he'll edge me out easily!
Rising - 174 cm said on 28/Jul/17 @Original: I think your Damon and Garcia estimates are close enough to be in the arguable range, but both 1 cm low, imo. Garcia is looking pretty short at times lately, though, such as with The Rock. I just don't see any way Pitt and Clooney are under 5'10". I can sort of understand it today sincce I do think Clooney could be as low as 177.8 cm to be precise and seeing him barely taller than Marky Mark at Cinema Con shocked me even with Marky Mark in 1.5" Timberlands. I still go 179 for both and then 178 for Clooney currently.
As for Damon's morning height, I'd say 178 range. Anywhere from 5'10"-5'10.25", but I'd bet he shrinks more than a mere half inch. 5'9.5" would be his height at noon, imo since I believe the 5'10.5" claim had to be a shoe height. Damon didn't look all that tall next to Robin Williams who may have been a weak 5'7" and maybe a couple inches taller than Don Cheadle, who is a stronger 5'7", but not above 5'7.5" as he, too, clearly claimed a shoe height when he said 5'8.5". Damon sees relatively height aware and usually wears at least 1"-1.3" type shoes and boots.He really wasn't looking that much taller than 5'8" Zac Efron and George Clooney is still taller, even though his posture is usually lousy. Legit 5'10" guys like Guy Pearce, Daniel Craig and Jude Law looked taller by a noticeable enough amount, imo. There's no way Damon had near 2" on 5'8" James Corden either.
I see 181 cm Jimmy Kimmel near 2" taller: Click Here
Slim 182 cm said on 28/Jul/17 Might agree with rampage, it's almost safe to list him 5ft 10in.

Rising - 174 cm said on 20/Jul/17 I'd also take movie promo pics with a grain of salt, as they often minimize differences for these.
Btw, here's a photo of Damon and Robert Redford on the set of that film: Click Here
I think Redford was still around 5'10" at this point and hadn't really lost much or anything. 177-178 range. Of course, Redford has cowboy boots and seems to have a ground advantage, but Redford does seem taller in this premiere pic: Click Here
Slim 182 cm said on 19/Jul/17 Rob, any idea what shoes Damon and Smith wore during "the legend of bagger Vance"?
If neutral footwear, Matt is most likely a flat 5'10, as seen in the photo given his camera advantage.
Editor Rob: not watched it for ages, so not really sure.
Slim 182 cm said on 18/Jul/17 Don't forget, we can't see their feet, so it should be taken with a grain of salt. @celebheights.
Slim 182 cm said on 17/Jul/17 Celebheights, our friend will smith is not 187, more like 185/186. Plus the camera angle is in Damons favour.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 17/Jul/17 He looks over 5'10" with 187 CM Will Smith:
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Jul/17 Don't remember what height he looked in the Bourne films, though I've seen them all, but yeah, 5'10" flat is probably more likely than 5'9" flat as he can look it more, though I think he's right between 5'9" and 5'10".
Affleck jokes about how short Damon is around 1:22 and shortly after Damon responds "I'm five ten and a half. I mean if you take out Northern Europe, like, I'm way above the world average."
I'm sure he is...in shoes. But funny enough, he mentions the average and Damon is likely completely average for an American man at 5'9.5". Btw, I think you can see the real height difference between the two better than in most pictures there. If you imagine Matt without the hat and Ben standing like Matt, a 5 inch difference doesn't seem impossible. It's at least 4.5" when Ben stands decently.
Slim 181 cm said on 13/Jul/17 Matt has a higher chance of being a flat 5'10 than a flat 5'9, as seen in the Bourne series.
Slim 181 cm said on 12/Jul/17 Philip Seymour Hoffman: 5'8.5
musicgeek said on 12/Jul/17 Perfect listing, I could never see him quite being the full 5'10" even in the Jason Bourne movies, but certainly taller than an even 5'9"
Peak 177 cm, now 176 cm

Matt Damon: 5'9.5
Instead of listing the oceans cast, let's list the talented mr Ripley cast!
All I really know is flat 5'9 is injustice for this guy!
RisingForce said on 9/Jul/17 Damon is clearly shorter than 5'10" Jude Law on stage in The Talented Mr. Ripley: Click Here
I agree with 176 minimum, but I'll still give him slightly more. The reason I'm so certain on 5'9.5" in particular is I really believe Damon was claiming a shoe height with the 5'10.5" he was going with.
Slim 181 cm said on 7/Jul/17 Yeah Matt is 5'9.25 minimum.
As for Andy Garcia, he's lost approximately half an inch given that he's 60 or 61 years old.
