How tall is Matt Damon

Matt Damon's Height

5ft 9 ¾ (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]."

i don't get the big fuss about the picture with affleck. better posture and his footwear doesn't exactly look normal to me.
Realist said on 19/Sep/23
This picture of him next to Ben Affleck solidifies him at 5'9.5 I thought he was 5'9 even.
Jtm said on 9/Sep/23
it's hilarious that he called out michael jordan for claiming 6'6 when he claims 5'11. to be honest even Jordan 6'6 claim is more believable than Damon at 5'10. i was watching Air a while ago and he is shorter than jason bateman in every scene even with the clear camera advantage.

Average guess is right, needs a quarter inch downgrade

@Rob What do you think now?

A) 5ft 10½ out of bed, 5ft 9¾ before bed
B) 5ft 10⅜ out of bed, 5ft 9⅝ before bed
C) 5ft 10¼ out of bed, 5ft 9½ before bed
D) 5ft 10⅛ out of bed, 5ft 9⅜ before bed

Could see B as possible. C at worst.

He's 5-9
Matt99 said on 23/May/23
His new film AIR, he looks over an inch shorter than Jason Bateman, either Bateman is the full 5’11 or Damon is struggling with 177cm. I reckon he’s strong 176.
Matt99 said on 21/May/23
Watching the Martian, and I can’t see him as a solid 177cm. I reckon he’s bang on 176.5cm 5’9.5.
Darksol64 said on 27/Apr/23
@ Rockaway

True.

6'2 guys aren't quite looking over his head.

Would take a 6'4 range guy to really start towering him.

I think he's close to a weak 5'10 but maybe not quite. But I definitely feel as though he's 5'9.5- 5'9.75 range rather than .25-50.

May actually measure something like 5'9 5/8 before bed. Going to guess the full 5'9.75 as listed because average guess is a little too low.
viper said on 17/Apr/23
IMO consistently looks too short for weak 5-10.

He's around 5-9.25-5-9.5 range
Rockaway said on 13/Apr/23
Weak 5’10” seems about right. Doesn’t get towered too easily, holds up fairly well next to Affleck.
James (179cm) Jones said on 10/Apr/23
I'd say He's 5'9 ⅝ or 5'9 ¾ now, and maybe bang on 178cm 5'10 in his peak.
5'10.25" said on 9/Apr/23
Looks 177 cm with Affleck, just at his eye level, 178 cm with poofed up hair, the listing is perfect.

He should clear 5ft 10 easily out of bed. Maybe he has a chance of near 10.5 first thing and 9.5 at night.

nah, Billy Bob Thornton still looks slightly taller than Damon in that picture to me.
berta said on 19/Jan/23
i think 177 or 178. his 179 claim is morningheight. I remember an old photo of him cloney and pitt. they were barefoot and pitt had shoes on that gave very little ( i guess 1-1,5 cm) Clooney was little taller than matt ( we talk at most 2 cm) Pitt did look 4 cm taller than cloney but take of shoes of 1,5 and 1 cm better posture then he was atmost 1,5 taller. This means:
Matt Damon 177,5
CLonney 179,5
Pitt 181 (But probably 180,5 in reality).
Just what i think. I know most say matt is 176,5 clonney 178 and pitt 179. But everyone knows they are not that short. Its like when you sitt with your girlfriend and yout girlfreidn is very beautiful but a modell passes by and you look for 2 secunds. She see that you look and say something like" dont look at her, she is not even that pretty". We all know the modell is pretty but she have to tell herself that she is not. Or a fat guy say " i dont want to go to the gym because i dont think it look good with muscles but i can look like a bodybuilder if i want" if that makes you feel good then say it. I have a feeling its the same with many of the comment here. The more happy you are with yourself the more you see things for what they really are.

5’9.5 isn’t a short height.

If Matt were wider and bigger as a person, then he’d look less short and small compared to the legit 6’2 guy.

He looks 1.5 inches shorter than 5'11 Mickey Rourke in The Rainmaker.

5'9.25 to 5'9.5" is his range, sometimes can look 5'9 due to his frame (big head), but personally he could've hit 5'9.5" before 5'9.
Andy Cash said on 11/Sep/22
No way is he 5 9 3/4 eg all but 5 10. Just watching The Talented Mr Ripley when he is on the beach. 5 8 1/2 max. That was 23 years ago. I doubt he grew since then.

because next to jon bernthal he looks noticably shorter

rob met jon bernthal and listed him as 180cm

just look for pics of matt and jon and see yourself

i know that some pics are not good though because of angle and floor etc

He’s always looked on the shorter side. I think it’s pretty hard to judge celeb heights because the footwear is so deceptive but there are several pictures of him online with Chris Hemsworth on a family vacation, wearing flip flops, and Chris towers over him by about 6 inches.

Click Here

There’s one of them wearing similar footwear. If Chris is 6’3”, makes Matt about 5’9”, but most people put Hemsworth close to 6’2”1/2, which puts Matt in the 5’8”1/2 range. Which I think looks about right for him based off all the other photos of him barefoot or in minimalist footwear.
Slim 6'0.25 said on 7/Mar/22
Ledger does appear 8cm taller so a 176 downgrade is necessary
khaled taban 5ft9 said on 24/Feb/22
@Rob- I think Matt has to be downgraded, he is only an inch taller than James Corden. Maybe 176 on a good day, but 177? I doubt he is that tall.

Pitt with normal looking dress shoes could look a good 4 cm taller Click Here, Click Here. At times Damon has seemed close to 5'10, but overall I struggle to see much over 5'9.5, wouldn't rule out 5'9.25.
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 1/Feb/22
@Rising 174cm yeah many people had him at that mark, it's the most realistic one for me, but i think Rob's listing still somewhat reasonable,too
Mattyboy said on 22/Dec/21
wakes up a little over 5’10.25 and by mid day a tad under 5’10. Basically solidly in the average height range and holds up pretty well to anyone under 6 foot if he wears decently thick soled shoes with good posture.
Rising174cm said on 21/Dec/21
@Rob: Yeah, posture is probably why some people think Affleck is shorter than 6'2". It's also why I generally find it better to compare to people who are close in height.

Btw, here's Damon and 5'11" Bruce Willis: Click Here There's a decent comparison of them talking from about 17 or 18 seconds on. Willis was first given a current height of 5'11" about 3 years after this upon everyone seeing how he looked with Justin Long and others in Live Free or Die Hard.

I still think 5'9.5" is spot on for Damon barefoot. He's repeated the 5'10.5" claim 3 times(assuming Glenn was being truthful and I do at least think he's trustworthy to relay claims) making it highly likely he measured that in shoes and Damon rarely wears shoes less than an inch. Sometimes I can see Matt 1/4" under or over, but 5'9.5" seems to make the most sense.
Rising174cm said on 18/Dec/21
Damon looks about 5'9.5" in the photos above with Ledger and Affleck, or even the listed height if Affleck is his listed height rather than 6'2" flat. But Damon only looks about 5'9" here with Affleck: Click Here and in the video in this article: Click Here Note how Affleck towers over Damon in the first still they use, yet is dropping several inches in the second. Affleck often does that with his posture.

And Damon looks only 5'9" here with Ledger: Click Here

And Damon does not look a full 2" taller than Robert De Niro, who was not over 172 cm in 2011: Click Here
Editor Rob
It's something mentioned in the past - with Ben, he did at times drop 1-2 inches when posing with Matt
Rising174cm said on 11/Dec/21
Definitely a better chance of 176 cm than 177, imo. He looked only 175 cm with admitted 170 cm Christoph Waltz and 175-176 range with James Corden and Heath Ledger. He also tends to look in that range with 179-180 cm Brad Pitt.

Since he's claimed 5'10.5" twice, it makes sense that he measured that in shoes and his shoes are almost always at least an inch so 5'9.5" is the best guess. Really can't see him taller since he sometimes looks like a 5'9" guy.
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 5/Dec/21
@RunningMam

I think you'd be the same size.

He looks close to 5 inches shorter than legit 6'2.25 Adam Driver. Can't see him more than 5'9.5.

Has Matt Damon ever stood next to or near Eddie Murphy? Would be interesting to see how much is between them if any.
Original said on 20/Nov/21
Damon is def around ~176 (175.5 - 176.5cms barefoot), the likes of Clooney and Pitt are only about 2cms (2.5cms the max) taller than him without the lifts tho.

Damon is ~5'9.25"
MaskDeMasque 5'9.5 said on 15/Nov/21
Average guess is probably spot on.
Rising174cm said on 9/Nov/21
Damon is 5'9.5" max and probably got the 5'10.5" figure in shoes. He looked 5'9"-5'9.5" range with Ledger, barely 5'9" with Christoph Waltz and more 5'9" than 10 with James Corden. I could believe 176 before 177. Brad Pitt is somewhere between 5'10.5" and 5'11" and pretty much always looked more than an inch taller than Damon.

i dont agrre with average guess. 176,4? he clearly is not that short. Never under 177 and never over 178,5. I think a good listing is 177,5. very close to 5´10 that a 5´10 listing would be close to the truth.

Closer to 5’8 than 5’10. Affleck wouldn’t be laughing at his 5’10.5 claim if he was this close to 5’10.

@TallSam

Completely agree. He's a minimum of 5'9.25 but nothing over 5'9.75. 5'9.5 seems the most likely imo.
Slim 6'1.75 said on 26/Sep/21
What’s the difference between Affleck and Damon?

I think 10-10.5cm
Johno said on 25/Sep/21
I cannot workout why he is listed as or people view Damon as 1-inches+ shorter than Pitt, the difference between them would be lucky to be 1-inch even.

I think the guy could get a measurement in the 5'9-range but also partially in the 5'8-range.

5'9
MaximusPrime said on 16/Sep/21
If he was 177 going to sleep would he be acceptable to say 5’10 seeming it’s close enough and he’s only that short at his lowest?

He did have a boot, though it wasn't really big, but maybe just with good posture he pulled off 5ft 10 or a bit over at that event, there were other photos Pitt looks taller.

I would say the odds are he’s either 176 or 177 cm, I don’t think he’s any shorter than that, or taller.

Jamestherealone said on 16/Aug/21
I didn't find him short in The Talent of Mr. Ripley, but rather average. IMO, a short man is at least 5 cm shorter than the average height of a country and a tall man is at least 5 cm taller than the average height of a country. Matt Damon is 177 cm tall. If the average height for men in the USA is roughly 178 cm, and Damon is American, it means he is an American of average height.

Editor Rob
that's a kind of range he might fall into
Morningheight 181.6 cm said on 2/May/21
This here is the problem to why 5’11 guys are being billed as just average or maybe even short, it’s because a lot of 5’9 and change men out there are claiming to be 5’11 and that’s what gives the perception that 5’11 is just average or short.
Take for example Brett Gardner of the Yankees some sites have him as being 5’11 I’ve seen one even as low as 5’9 but if you see him playing you can clearly see that he’s not 5’11.

Hi Rob,

The Average Guess has now dipped below 5' 9.5"

Time to reconsider his listing?

Or do you think the 5' 9.75" is the lowest you can see him at?
Editor Rob
5ft 9.5 might be the lowest I'd try to argue for him.
Meltdown said on 7/Feb/21
No way. I'm going with 5ft 8 now, peak at 5ft 9 or under. His proportions are off and he looked nearly 4 inches shorter than Heath Ledger.
Rising174cm said on 6/Feb/21
I'd agree with Rampage that 5'9" flat is too low, although he could look that short at times and even struggle with the mark next to 5'7" Christoph Waltz. I wouldn't rule out just a 1/4" over 5'9", though as Grant Heslov is listed that and Damon didn't look much different: tinyurl.com/ul70cj3q This shows they both had pretty thin sneakers: tinyurl.com/5shhtf9l Damon does look about 176 cm a lot. I'd guess there's a better chance of him measuring that over 177 though my money would still be on right in between.

I dunno. Matt looked pretty small in Downsizing and his head quite massive in Team America. F. Yeah! Martian heads are generally big. Real Matt probably around 5'9.5" but no more IMO. Seems like a nice, family guy but I find him boring to watch in films. He has a sufficient fan base without me so good luck to him.

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.

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.

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

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.
Editor Rob
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

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.

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.

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

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.

@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.

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

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 🤔 🤫

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!

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

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

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

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"!??😂

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.

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.
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.
Editor Rob
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.
Editor Rob
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.
Editor Rob
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

Click Here

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.

He doesn't look like he'd be a solid 177cm. The average guess has him under 177cm.

Rob, how tall would his wife be? 5'4?

Yeah that could be possible.
