How tall is Matt Damon

Matt Damon's Height

5ft 9.75in (177.2 cm)

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]."

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.

@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.

@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.

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.

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".

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.

@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?

bit.ly/2fjaJE7

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.

This is how I see it on celebheights


Overlisted 15%

As listed 70%

Underlisted 15%


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.

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.

Overall:

40% are over listed
40% are right on the money
20% are underlisted

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.

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.

What ever height Corden is, Matt is about 0.5 or 0.75-inches taller

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.

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.

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

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.

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".

Btw, here's Damon's 5'10.5" claim: Click Here

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.

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.
George said on 7/Jul/17
Over 5'10"
RisingForce said on 6/Jul/17
Slim, I'd give Andy an even 5'9", which is 175.3 rounded, but considering he's 60, I don't know if he's lost any height or not so it wouldn't surprise me if he's slightly shorter now, but he could still be a full 5'9".

Back to Damon, he could really seem well below 5'10", imo with a 5'7" max Robin Williams, such as this scene: Click Here
Slim 182 cm said on 6/Jul/17
RisingForce I agree with 3/4 of your estimates. 😜

I'm not sure I've seen Damon in lifts period. Sometimes thicker boots, but I can't recall seeing elevators or big heels on Damon.

Even if he's as low as 176, it doesn't delete the fact that he's one of the best actors.
RisingForce said on 17/Jun/17
I think 5'9.5" is the most likely. He's claimed 5'10.5" at least twice and I agree that's a shoe height, but Damon wears fairly thick shoes, rarely less than an inch. He could have rounded that up, hence his 5'11" claim and Damon was claiming a flat 5'10" for a while as well, so that could have been rounding up his barefoot height or rounding down his shoe height. I do agree that a solid 177 cm is a decent listing since Damon can pull off 5'10" quite a bit, but Damon can also look as short as 175 cm at times. In general, I think a likely range is from 176-177 cm so 176.5 is what I'd put money on, much like Steve McQueen.
Lorne??? said on 17/Jun/17
This is much better! This was pretty much my "Lorne's listing", and for probably years.

5ft9.5 is now impossible, however this is fair enough.

Glad you(Rob) finally downgraded him to what I would pretty much list.

And Arch Stanton, I thought the same thing, maybe 177 barefoot, measuring 179-180 in shoes, and giving shoe claim(never understand why people, especially actors who have almost certainly been measured barefoot, possibly multiple times(w/ and w/out shoes) claim shoe height.

I am ok with rounding up, from say 5ft7.5-75,(barefoot) and claiming 5ft8, or even morning height, if someone is height aware and decides, if 178.5 evening, 180-181 out of bed, and decides 5'11 is better than 5'10.25, or even if they say something like "5'11 on a good day" that isn't exact, but at least they honestly do/can measure they're claim barefoot. Yet shoe height, well most people aren't born in shoes that I am aware of, and shoes vary. My fave shoe, Black-Black Converse, gives less than 2cm brand new, yet some sneakers(Nike Shox) give a good 3cm, and never mind boots.

Anyway, a bit of a tirade, just saying.

Back to Damon, he did claim 5'10 before that, which seems like an honest round-up, yet then upgraded himself, so there is that too.

Anyway, recap, 5ft9.5 not impossible, though I think this is a good, if not the best listing for him.

And shoe claims are abundundatly commonly...
Hijopotamus said on 16/Jun/17

If Jimmy Kimmel is 181 cm then Matt can really look closer to 176 cm with him, such as this video: Click Here Maybe Matt and Jimmy coordinated on their 5'11" and 6'1" claims, respectively. Needless to say, nobody informed Jude Law!

I think he looks anywhere from 5'9"-5'9.5" with Ledger in the series of pics. I'd say more 5'9.5" in the one above, but in others he doesn't look more than 5'9" though in general, I wouldn't guess lower than 176 cm for Damon.

He was dropped to 177 cm a while ago. 176 cm is probably his low, but I think 176.5 cm I'd his real height. Adds up perfectly with the 5'10.5" he started claiming a few years back(likely his height in shoes)

Hey Rob. Who do you think would edge out whom if measured, between Damon and celebheights user Bobby? 😉

RisingForce said on 4/May/17
I don't think 176 cm can be ruled out at all. He's looked in that 175-176 cm range more frequently than I initially thought. Certainly with James Corden as well as Robin Williams, Don Cheadle at times with Heath Ledger and even the '98 and '99 Oscars with Affleck. I personally wouldn't guess him that low except at night and would give him more 176.5, but I think there's a much better chance of 176 than 179, which he can also look, but can be ruled out by the fact that Damon regularly only claimed to be 5'10" during the press for Invictus. 5'10" flat can't be ruled out either, but now that we know Jude Law admitted to being only 5'10" himself, it brings it into question for Damon. Also, Damon was visibly shorter than Ben Carson, who looks about 177 cm with 184 cm Trump: Click Here Carson was almost definitely taller when that photo was taken, but nowhere near the 6 feet he's listed on the internet. I'm sure that with a simple boot like this, nobody is going to question Damon at 5'10": Click Here

Actually, Damon could look a good 5" shorter than Affleck at the 1999 Oscars too: Click Here Legit 5'10" Guy Pearce also looked significantly taller than Damon did next to 5'7.5" Don Cheadle. Damon looks just about 2" taller than Cheadle here: Click Here But Damon may have the camera advantage if you look at other pics from that night: Click Here Click Here Their eye level is surprisingly close, but I think Cheadle has a small head.
RisingForce said on 30/Apr/17
You're right, Alex. Matt usually does seem to have a good 1" on Casey Affleck, but Casey use to be listed here at 5'8", Rob has said he could be 5'8.5" and that's roughly what the average guess on his page is. Casey typically looks very similar in height to Joaquin Phoenix, who is an admitted 5'8" and I have seen Casey look nearly 6" shorter than his 6'2" brother before. I think 5'8.5" is probably more likely for Casey, which would add up with Damon at 5'9.5" because I agree that there's not much reason to suspect Damon of lifts. Surprisingly, Matt seems the same height as Casey here: Click Here More surprising is Matt usually doesn't look more than 4" shorter than Ben and sometimes only 3", in fact, he can measure up as well to Ben as he did to Heath Ledger, though Ben often has bad posture and may wear thinner footwear. Though if you go back to the 1998 Oscars, Ben can seem at least 5 inches taller: Click Here and a good 4"-4.5" at the 2010 Matt Damon tribute: Click Here Of course, we maybe shouldn't rule out occasional lifts for Damon. We need good shots of his shoes indicating lifts before we assume it, but he can go from looking no more than 5'9" up to about 5'11" despite the fact that Damon usually has good posture. For instance, Robert De Niro was no more than 172 cm by 2011, yet Damon may have him by slightly more than an inch, but certainly not 2 inches here: Click Here delancey, I agree that 176 cm is Damon's minimum, though I think it's premature to discuss height loss with Damon. I'd say 177 cm would be more of a max though, so I do think a very slight downgrade would be spot on since I really believe Damon is between 176 and 177 and always was.
delancey said on 26/Apr/17
Don't get why people want Damon downgraded? I guess he's getting a bit older so may have lost a tiny fraction, but the absolute lowest I could see is maybe 176 cm?
He's definitely not 175 cm range like Hardy.
dracula said on 26/Apr/17
I lived to see Matt Damon get downgraded

now let's wait for the final veredict of 176cm
Alex said on 22/Apr/17
I don't doubt that Casey is 1.75 but howcome matt always looks substantially taller even in good will hunting days , I doubt matt damon wears lifts.
RisingForce said on 18/Apr/17
I agree with 176 at his low. Likely 176.5 cm midday. He said 5'10.5" in that video with Ben Affleck too and I agree that's a shoe height, but Matt never wears 0.75" Converse type. Always at least 1" so no more than 5'9.5", but the simple 5'10" Matt was claiming around Invictus was an honest round up. Looks the same height as Greg Kinnear, who is also supposedly 5'9.5": Click Here Click Here Sometimes one is slightly taller, which is normal. Both were noticeably shorter than Ben Carson, who doesn't look more than 5'10" range with 184 cm Trump, but Carson may have been taller in his early 50s than he is now. Damon does look more 5'9"-5'9.5" max with a weak 5'7" Robin Williams as I certainly don't see 3 inches: Click Here Click Here But 5'9.5" seems dead on and 176 cm minimum since he can look at least 5'10" a lot, more often than he looks 5'9". It's strange some people on this site just assume he's a 5'9" max, or even 5'8" lift wearer when there's never been any evidence of that.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Apr/17
"I'm 5-10.5, maybe 5-11 if I totally stretch out".

I think he's honest but in shoes. 5'9.5-75 barefoot. His lowest might be 176 but 177 seems about right.
park said on 16/Apr/17
Hey Rob,
After watching some very recent clips and interviews with Matt, I am beginning to wonder if he's lost height or is even shorter than this listing. What do you think?
Dejavu said on 14/Apr/17
Matt Damon could look 3 to 5 inches shorter than Ben Affleck depending on posture. He could look close to 2 inches shorter than kimmel too.
RisingForce said on 8/Apr/17
I agree, berta. He can surprisingly look only 175 cm with Corden as well as Ledger and at times with Robin Williams and Don Cheadle, but that's too low for him based on how tall he usually looks. I think 5'9.5" is the best guess and 176 cm minimum.
HonestSlovene said on 7/Apr/17
5'9"-5'10" range is arguable for Matt Damon.
berta said on 5/Apr/17
in his james cordon interview he really did only look about 2-3 cm taller. i dont think he is only 175 but maybe this is max what he is
RisingForce said on 31/Mar/17
In fairness, Damon was only claiming 5'10" when he did Invictus, so it's pretty obvious he rounded up from 5'9.5" barefoot then, and when Matt claimed 5'10.5" in that video with Affleck or told it to Glenn, he was giving a shoe height, but then really pushed it rounding up his shoe height when he claimed 5'11".
Peter175 said on 30/Mar/17
How come there isn't a single honest guy of these big names celebs. Rounding up like Clooney is fine, but rounding up and then adding another inch is NOT cool. Leo never saw 6ft in his life maybe not even in the morning and neither has Damon seen 5ft11. He is a 176-177 guy
RisingForce said on 30/Mar/17
I remember thinking Damon looked 5'9.5" with Ledger: Click Here But that was when Ledger was listed here at 6'1". To be consistent, I must admit that Damon can look 175 cm with Ledger only 184 cm and he's looked only 5'9" flat other times other times such as with James Corden, but Damon is tall enough to pass for a legit 5'10" a lot of the time as well. I'm still sold on 5'9.5".
Original said on 27/Mar/17
175.
Yuval said on 26/Mar/17
I just watched dogma and there is no way he is 12 cm shorter then affleck..he is more like 178-179 cm height

movshakr said on 23/Mar/17
he's 4" shorter than Heath Ledger in the photo. that puts him in the 5'7" mark
Chris said on 23/Mar/17
Looks smaller next to Ben affleck than cadet does sometimes or about the same. Never gave a tall or short impression just a kinda lower average impression. 5"9.25
Pierre said on 20/Mar/17
If James Corden is not really 5"8'barefoot then Matt Damon is maybe not 5"9.5'.
RainbowBlaster5 said on 19/Mar/17
If you're pessimistic you could say he dips into 1.75 but most likely never below 1.76 and wakes up at 1.78

S.J.H said on 18/Mar/17
Lol. Damon can only be 5'9.5 in the morning 8-9am and went down his lowest 5'9
RisingForce said on 15/Mar/17
I agree 100% on 5'9.5". No more, no less He's consistently looked a couple inches taller than 5'7.5" Don Cheadle, but no more: Click Here (the difference is no greater than Rob with a 5'10" guy) and he certainly didn't look taller than 5'9.5" in Good Will Hunting with weak 5'7" Robin Williams. Still noticeably shorter than Tommy Lee Jones who looks about 5'11" at 70 years old: Click Here and Bruce Willis, who in 2011 was looking the weak 5'11" Damon tries to claim he is: Click Here
Shredder said on 14/Mar/17
5'9.5 is the best bet , His claim is in shoes. Anything under 5'9 is trolling.
Kayle said on 14/Mar/17
I saw him at a MBTS event and he was wearing heeled shoes, as he always does, so it is really hard to tell. Casey was wearing similar footwear and Matt was about an inch taller, so my guess is the upper end of 5'9.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Mar/17
That's a good find with Corden. I always said 177 for Damon is nearer the truth.
Pierre said on 13/Mar/17
Here is a picture Matt Damon with James Corden listed 5"8'. Click Here
PaulC said on 10/Mar/17
Rather bizarrely I found myself standing next to Matt Damon at a urinal in the Czech Republic :-/ He had been watching a screening or Pirates of the Carribbean with Terry Gillingham (they were filming the Brother's Grimm in Prague), I was fortunate enough to be in the same screening as them (although unaware until after). When I recognised him upon leaving the toilet it struck me how short he was, I'm 6'3'', so obviously was somewhat taller, however the friend I was with 5'10'' and was clearly taller. I would say Matt Damon is 5'8'', 5'8.5" at a push.
delancey said on 8/Mar/17
5'8 range for Damon is completely ridiculous. This listing is spot on imo, could even argue 178cm.
Bobby said on 8/Mar/17
@HonestSlave, no, I wake up at 178.47cm, and drop to 177.2cm in the evenings, I've measured this repeatedly. Since it's only a 6mm difference, I round up. I'm above average height though. By the way, you wanna know something interesting? I tallied up all the height averages of 85 countries, and then divided the total by the amount of countries, and the worldwide average height for men, is 5'4. I wonder what Rob would have to say about this.
Bobby said on 8/Mar/17
Are we arguing that Matt Damon measures 5'9.75 in the afternoon, or in the late evenings? If in the late evenings, then I still think he's a decent enough 5'10 to claim that as his height.
Jason said on 27/Feb/17
Matt looked 6+ inches shorter than Ben Affleck at the oscars. Ben most likely is 6'3 range in shoes so that leaves Matt around 5'9
Guillermo said on 26/Feb/17
Seeing him next to Ben Affleck at Oscars he appeared six inches shorter. So Ben at 6'4" Matt would be 5'10" but with Ben at 6'2.25" so Damon would be 5'8 3/4" or 5'9". Feb 26, 2017
Tarik said on 25/Feb/17
The problem in assessing Matt Damons height to be honest is that from photos he appears to wear high heeled shoes and possibly lifts. A barefoot photo with other celebrities will give a more accurate. I 5ft9er I believe.
RisingForce said on 25/Feb/17
The 5'8" range stuff with Damon was always nonsense. He can often look 5'10" and there's no evidence he wears lifts. He was barely shorter than Clooney, both in socks. I bet 5'9.5", no more, no less. He probably measured 5'10.5" in shoes.
Arthur said on 23/Feb/17
I think there is a chance Damon is 5'9 7/8 at his usual low and 5'9 3/4 at his absolute low. He is definitely under 5'10 at his low though. He never looks a proper 5'10.
Sonnecker said on 23/Feb/17
I always saw Matt in the 176 cm zone, 177 at times.... Very similar to Mel Gibson in height and body proportions.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Feb/17
Nothing under 177cm
MaskDeMasque said on 22/Feb/17
He has to be somewhere in the 176-177cm zone at night. I'm 5'9.5 and he looks a similar height/build to me.
S.J.H said on 17/Feb/17
No damon is not quite under 5'9. At worst 5'8.75
jtm said on 16/Feb/17
clearly shorter than joel gretsch and looked close to Bruce McGill's height. McGill looks 5'7.5-5'8 to me. Damon is closer to 5'8 than 5'10.
S.J.H said on 16/Feb/17
@berta

Not agree with this. Jason issacs close line between 5'10 and 5'11 claim look a most solid 5'10.5 in celebheight nobody could denied and if damon is 177cm then issac is 181cm which is impossible at most damon is 176cm in the morning and 180cm for issac
height said on 14/Feb/17

Click Here Screenshot from 2010 Green Zone. Jason issacs look 1.5" taller no tricks. People may check out the movie

Click Here Damon with jimmy kimmel also similar to how jason issacs edge out damon by 1.5"

Damon is only 175cm not more. Jimmy kimmel i've walk by close up he was not over 5'10.5 in person and it's a morning between 10-11am when i drop by a restaurant in Brooklyn, New York and see theres some fans taking autograph with him. Since then no way even matt damon can be over 5'9

He is not tall nether short, I think 178 cm is right.

I have met jimmy kimmel once in real and was so close to him i can easily tell he is nothing over 5'10.5 but i give extra 0.25 just to make myself believe his taller and i did open up with honesty now he even be lower at 5'10.25 since i met him in morning and matt damon look 1.5" lower than kimmel. Damon is max 5'9 and probably just 5'8.75 can only be 5'10 with shoes
Balrog said on 2/Feb/17
Rob, maybe out of bed he got measured 5'10.5'' and round up to 5'11''? Only way to justify his claim. He looks 5'9.5'' - 5'10'' range to me.
Editor Rob: or got measured 5ft 10.5 in footwear, either is a way some people give a height.
Tarik said on 2/Feb/17
His proportions as well as seeing him pictured next to James Corden suggest to me he is a 175cm guy.
Arthur said on 31/Jan/17
Rob, do you still think he could hold a 5'10 flat at night?
Editor Rob: at some point of the day I'm sure he does measure 5ft 10, but ultimately drops under it, I think if measured he's going to clear 5ft 9.5, but how much...
delancey said on 29/Jan/17
He's always been kinda stocky/built up which gives him a shorter appearance.
177cm MIN in my opinion, no lower.
Prince said on 24/Jan/17
I used to think 5-10 was his barefoot height at his low height of the day after being up for 5 or more hours, but after having met him he's easily 5'11". My low height of the day is 5'9" and he was 2 inches taller than me and we were both wearing those chuck taylor all star converse shoes that only give a quarter inch of height.
berta said on 23/Jan/17
heis a hard one to guess i think he is one dude that sometimes looks 175 and other times 180. probably have a little lifgt in the shoes . 178 sounded little to tall. i would go with weak 177

Was Ryan Seacrest on a box at the Golden Globe red carpet a few days ago, or maybe had in some massive lifts, because they were able the same height during their interview during the telecast of the event. It wasn't a fullbody shot, but nearly so. I suspect he must have been on some kind of small box.
jd said on 10/Jan/17
If he list's 70" then he is likely at max 69.5 inches...look at the heights of NFL prospects before and after the combine, many are 1-2 inches below what they list, no one over lists their height...photos are very hard to interpret-you have footwear, slope of the the floor, and posture plus camera angle
Friop said on 6/Jan/17
I guess a solid 5'9 fits him? How much do you think he weighed in Bourne Supremacy?
Chad said on 4/Jan/17
Another guy that should be called the king of lifts. In ocean's 11 he looked about 5 foot 10, 1 inch shorter than george clooney, but in ocean's 12 he was looking 2 inches taller than clooney at 6 foot 1 and towered over both him and brad pitt.The only explanation for that is huge lifts! inside his shoes.

After having seen him in person, I can confirm with 100 percent certainty that he is straight up BSing when he says he is 5'11'' or even 5'10''. I mean completely BS and he knows it too. I went out with a 5'10'' guy for years and he was almost always taller than me whenever I wore the same shoes that I was wearing when I stood next to Matt Damon. Yet I was a couple of inches taller than Matt Damon in the same shoes in spite of Matt Damon wearing very thick soled shoes unlike the guy I went out with. No way is this guy 5'10''. He is probably around 5'5'' barefoot.

There's a pic with Matt Damon standing next to 5' 9" Casey Affleck and Damon honestly seems an inch taller. Damon is probably 5' 10 1/4" for a few hours after waking up and 5'10" after standing around 5 hours or so.

WHat is kinda funny is that in the movie, The Bourne Supremacy, there's a scene where they cut to Matt Damon's character showing 5'9" on his driver's license. He claims to be 5'10" and does look it but why didn't they use 5'10" as his character's height. Also, when he says he's 5'10 when asked about his height, is he giving his height counting footwear or giving his barefoot height. Is Matt Damon aware that a person's height changes a half inch from the time they get up to the time they are going to bed?

C-mo; saw that picture before i knew of Triple G's height and for me Triple G is in the 5'9-range in most part. With that picture, if you were to draw a straight line you will notice G measures slightly taller but i don't think that picture is accurate enough to assess precise heights but for me, Damon looks like a 5'8-range, 5'9 there.

172.4cm guy said on 2/Nov/16
I think Matt Damon is right in the "average" range for American height...176cm now, maybe 177cm in his peak. He looked average, but muscular, in the last Jason Bourne movie, respectable and still threatening. I think he may get a lift from wearing boots or thick sole shoes in the films and can look in the 178-180 range, but in my mind, he's definitely an average height guy.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 2/Nov/16
Heath Ledger should be upgraded to 6'0 3/4" if Matt Damon is 5'10". Besides, Heath Ledger was clearly an inch taller than Christian Bale, and wasn't much shorter than Morgan Freeman.

Rent is right. He put it beautifully. This guy is a genuine 5'9.25, the actual non-inflated American Caucasian Average. He and Rob would look like exactly like Harry Melling (in height) next to Rob. I think Damon is gonna be there soon on Robs personal photo list. 176 cm for Damon, the average american he is.

Rick said on 17/Oct/16
I'm sorry to say but this guy just doesn't look anything taller than 5ft 9in (175 cm). He's got short legs and average torso, he clearly looks shorter than average. In the movies he's in he's systematically shorter than most men around him and he juste gives me that impression to have a 5ft9 built. I really think Matt is 175, or 176 best case scenario. Big fan of him though, great actor and great personnality!

@Bobby The thing is though Ben Affleck is more 6'2 flat or 188 cm and looks consistently 4.5 in taller. That would make Matt about 176.5-177 cm considering everything equal (footwear, posture, surface level etc.). Google has most heights wrong.

@jtm You are a local downgrader just like viper, what else should I expect from you?
Arthur said on 15/Oct/16
Rob, how many inches difference do you see in this clip? Click Here

I see near 2 inches...
Editor Rob: probably 4cm range
jtm said on 15/Oct/16
still have a hard time accepting 5'9.5-5'10. call me a troll all you want but sticking with 5'8 range. never seen a 5'10 guy look as short as he does.
josh jeffords said on 15/Oct/16
Mat is not a full 5 10 barefoot maybe in shoes or big boots but not close barefoot.
Simple math he is never the tall guy or even come in around average he stands fairly upright but shorter than many.
In bourne I think his military record says 5 9 170 not that is gospel but thats all he looks like.
Also need to take into consideration he is on tv he is shorter than he appears.
In photos he is 2-3 shrter than pitt and a big inch under clooney who himself is not a big guy that makes a weak 5 9 barefoot.
Weirdly he did not look that much shorter than norton who Ive heard is 6 1 he might even look taller...dont buy that either.
datguy said on 14/Oct/16
Now that the average guess is 5'9.64 will you finally consider downgrading him to 5'9.75?
Editor Rob: it's an interesting average, I haven't ruled out the 9.75, it may well turn out the nearest you could get.
Dave schultz said on 14/Oct/16
He's pretty tall...
Bobby said on 13/Oct/16
Bare in mind that Ben Affleck is 6'3, Google lists him as 1.92 meters, which is a little over 6'3. He looked really tall in Dawn of Justice, so it's possible that Cavil is actually closer to 6'2 himself, but he also has super good posture like Stephen Amell does. That said, Matt Damon looks a solid 5'10 to me, I've compared him to Garfield from observable memory, Garfield'/ lanky frame aside, they're equal in height.
Rent said on 13/Oct/16
Perfect exemple of strong 5'9 and weak 5'10, a good average, no more no less. In Ocean's eleven, on the scene where Tess appear for the first time, Brad Pitt looks close to have 3 inches on him, another proof than Pitt sometimes wears lifts.

im googleing matt damon
HonestSlovene said on 12/Oct/16
5'9.5" barefoot and 5'10.5"-5'11" in dress shoes.
Dan said on 10/Oct/16
Matt Damon is 5ft 9.5in (177 cm) in my opinion. That's what he looks next to Jimmy Kimmel and Ben Affleck. I always thought he looked perfectly average. He is well proportioned and has a pretty strong build. Might by time for a downgrade Rob? You've dropped Heath Ledger half an inch, it would only make sense to do the same to Matt Damon.
Civman said on 5/Oct/16
Hey robs! Did you see the emmy awards sketch with kimmel and damon? What did you think of their difference? To me it felt at least 3 cm, maybe 4. And I thought damon had kinda bigger heels..
Editor Rob: 177 is always an arguable figure, I wouldn't guess under that mark though.
Dejavu said on 3/Oct/16
If kimmel is 181cm I struggle to see him taller than 177cm and could look 176

FinnishGuy said on 2/Oct/16
I think 5'9.5 afternoon height is appropriate. I just can't see him at 5'10.
Original said on 30/Sep/16
5'9.

Clooney 5'9.75, 5'10

Pitt 5'9.5, 5'9.75
HonestSlovene said on 30/Sep/16
He is 5'9.5-5'9.75" / 176-177cm at the end of the day standing tall on his bare feet and wakes up at 5'10.25-5'10.5 /178-179cm or what he usually claims to be and he looses an average of 2 cm just how most of us average guys do. Just LOL at the notion that he is the full 5'11 though or even a mm over 179 cm in the morning.
Prince said on 29/Sep/16
I would actually guess Matt Damon at 5'10" as his low height of the day. Starts the day briefly at 5' 10 1/2" then is 5'10 1/4" for 4 or 5 hours roughly. The rest of the day 5'10" I've seen him stand next to Robin Williams in the movie Good Will Hunting and Robin who was 5'7" seemed 3 inches shorter than Damon. Also Brad Pitt who's very likely 5'11" during the Ocean's movies had an inch on Damon. Some scenes made Brad Pitt seem 2 inches taller but I think it was that Damon was walking on a part of the street that had lower elevation and Pitt was in a more elevated part of the street.
Dejavu said on 27/Sep/16
Actually he looks 177 with kimmel and could even be 176
bam said on 26/Sep/16
Hi Rob. When are you downgrading Damon to 5'9.75? Doesn't your YouTube video estimate Damon at 5'9.5-5'10?
Editor Rob: well I haven't ruled it out...

I actually intend to sit down over next 2 days and put some basic voting into the comment section. It will be interesting over the long-term to see what the 'Wisdom of the Crowd' gives to some listings...

I do listen to wisdom...well, most of the time :)
Dejavu said on 24/Sep/16
I think 177cm is closer to the truth. He is clearly 2 inches shorter than Jimmy Kimmel who Rob listed as 182cm.
Kourosh 176-177 cm said on 24/Sep/16
@Prince I agree with you I find full 2 cm is abit much. I normally lose 1.25 to 1.75 cm during day
Josh said on 24/Sep/16
@Prince . . I agree that everyone on the site puts way to much emphasis on shrinkage throughout the day. In the video Rob made showing the change in his measurements throughout a typical day (Click Here) he goes from 175.3cm out of bed to 173.8cm in the evening - a loss of about 1.5cm or 0.6inches which seems like a lot but after just an hour awake he's already lost the majority of that (1cm). Really the difference between 9am and 9pm was half a cm. When people talk about being "measured early or late" they're talking a difference of 0.2 of an inch . . .
Prince said on 22/Sep/16
I'm not sure why some folks think we lose 3/4 - 1" throughout the day. Absolutely no one loses that much height throughout a day. The difference is only 1/4 - 1/2" at most. It's scientifically proven that the average person loses a half inch after being up for a substantial time. As a matter of fact, most of us lose a quarter inch 5-10 minutes after waking up already. We hold on to the other quarter inch for 4 to 5 hours roughly.
:D said on 19/Sep/16
Looked 2 inches shorter than Kimmel with visibly bigger footwear at the emmys.
D said on 16/Sep/16
He probably wakes at 1.78. The rest of the day 1.77
Shredder said on 11/Sep/16
He has a short body for his height , He most likely is truly around 5'10.
Benefits said on 11/Sep/16
Yeah he does look more like 5'10. He always appears a strong average height guy even in his older age. I'd have to agree with 177-178cm, maybe 179 in his prime.
Willes189 said on 9/Sep/16
Maybe 177, but not under that! 177-178 is fair for Damon
heightchecker34 said on 8/Sep/16
As a 5'9 guy who once believed he was 5'10 his entire life and never got questioned about it... its not a really big deal. I don't feel any different at 5'10 (when I'm wearing shoes) than I would at 5'9 barefoot, and I'm not even being sour. For me personally, until I get to the 5'11 mark in dress shoes and then that's when I feel a difference, when I take them off. I think 2 inches is where you can start to tell a difference in people's height, or it becomes noticeable, even if you're not a height person. Matt Damon is a comfortable 178cm guy.. who I wouldn't feel short next too if we came face to face.
Jed said on 6/Sep/16
His character is listed as being 5'9 in the Bourne identity
HonestSlovene said on 6/Sep/16
@Benefits Most likely just between those 2 marks, 5'9.5 or 5'9.75. Looked either 5'9 or 5'10 in his movies, but I am leaning towards 5'10 since he did look that in the Departed.
D said on 5/Sep/16
He is obviously taller than 1.75.
Benefits said on 2/Sep/16
So is he 5'9 or 5'10?
John said on 1/Sep/16
Millionaires who lie about their height are so lame and Damon is just about as lame as it gets. You don't have enough Matt.... We need to think your tall too? 5.9ish mr self righteous
what!!!?!!! said on 25/Aug/16
i dont... he doesn't look short, but at the same time he doesnt look 1.78... i dont know or it's just me. More like 1.77... but who knows i've got the same build and im 1.81 when in pictures look like 1.78 d;
Benefits said on 19/Aug/16
So he's 5'9 then?
CS said on 18/Aug/16
One of the shorter looking 5'10 guys I've seen. Might be because of being stocky and his proportions though. Also, there still is the possibility he falls a fraction under 5'10.
Johno said on 18/Aug/16
But then again; Rob is more of 5'8.5 person at his median thus, Corden could be labelled a solid 5'8 and Damon; a 5'9 at his average if we were to assume a maximum of 1-inch difference.
Johno said on 17/Aug/16
@Truth, i have been observing Matt Damon and Corden even before this latest video and even stated the difference between the two is negligible and now with this lengthy new video; i am convinced there is less than 1-inch difference between the two, most likely 0.75-inches.

If Damon is 5'10, 5'9.75 or 5'9.5; Corden needs be basically around 5'9, 5'9.25 or at least in the upper end of 5'8. Corden is not this tall; 5'8 seems to be his max height. Throughout his career before he got famous he looked a strong 5'7 and 5'8; 5'7.5-5'8
He is shorter than a 5'8 Patrick Stewart who Rob has seen. A barefoot Cindy Crawford seemed to have more height on Corden than Damon.

I believe Rob has examples of what differences of 1.5-inches and 1-inches looks like; for me 1.5-inches is totally unrealistic and 1-inch is in the realms of possibility with 0.75-inches the best compromise.

James basically needs to be around 5'9 for Damon's usually estimates to hold up. Lucky for us, these two seem to be Good buddies and you will probably see more comparisons.
truth said on 17/Aug/16
@TJE Yes I think around 176.5 cm to 177 cm would be the most accurate assumption for Damon. Under 175 cm is bogus as well as anything more than 178 - 179 cm.
TJE said on 16/Aug/16
The case for 177 get stronger and stronger as the days go by
