How tall is Milo Ventimiglia

Milo Ventimiglia's Height

5ft 8.5in (174 cm)

American actor best known for playing Peter Petrelli on tv series Heroes. On film he can be seen in Pathology, Rocky Balboa and Armoured. He says in an online chat with aol "I don't know. I am 5'9" and in The Daily Mail he commented: "Yoga makes me feel taller. I work out, I run and tend to get stiff; yoga stretches me out. I'm 5ft 9in and think, 'Five eleven would be nice - just two more inches!' I think yoga adds one-and-a-half.".
In 2016, he increased his claim, saying "In Hollywood, usually people are pretty matched up. But Jared [Padalecki] is 6-foot-4, I'm 5-foot-10". I met him at LFCC 2007 (similar footwear) and again at London Film Con 2014 (he had about 0.4 inch more footwear).

as tall as rob
the Slav said on 12/Aug/17
Are you sure he's taller than you?
Doesn't look it
Editor Rob: well he was taller I feel, but in 2007 not really noticeably, like 174 at most.
Blake said on 7/Aug/17
I can see the pain in your eyes on the photo on the left! How do you think an actor would react if you told them what you did or to stand tall for the photo? They would probably slouch on purpose or tiptoe
Editor Rob: a proportion already would know, but of course a few might try to spoil a photo 😑 very few though!
Bobby said on 25/Jun/17
In the new photo, he looks 5'9.5 accounting for the footwear advantage over Rob. Is a flat 5'9 possible for this guy?
Editor Rob: he has a bit more footwear and I'm sure you can see I have a lean...

I wasn't intending to, but he pulled me in a bit!

As you can see, we are closer when there's no lean and footwear is more same range 👍
Cameron said on 3/Jun/17
I do think short starts at around 5'7.5" or so, 5'8.5" is just on the low end of average.
World Citizen said on 24/May/17
Looks more 5 ft 8.25
berta said on 22/Feb/17
rob he doesnt look taller in the first photo the old one. I think he is a guy that want to look little taller than he is. I think you and him are the same height. he is not 1/4 taller than you.
Editor Rob: he was similar range, at least the first time, but (with guys mainly) he definitely was doing 'rise on one foot' to gain half inch, it's something that he can be seen doing at public events.
Nik said on 12/Feb/17

He is too tall to be short.
Heyja said on 10/Feb/17
In my mind 5'9" is in the average range (for an American white guy), but 5'8" is where short starts.

Eight and a half? I'm not sure!
c-mo said on 1/Jan/17
Heem said on 6/Dec/16
5ft 8½ is short IMO.


not really .

it is a little below average but not short yet . short would be 5'7.5 and below
Heem said on 6/Dec/16
5ft 8½ is short IMO.
Heem said on 6/Dec/16
5ft 8½ is short IMO.
TJE said on 14/Oct/16
Odd how someone fairly honest about his height tries to look taller in photos...
GP said on 20/Aug/15
Rob, don't you think that height aware person like Milo would most likely use lifts? It makes me question if he could have possibly used lifts with you and he is 5'8" in reality or even a bit under that. And in the first photo he is turned his body that placed him a step closer to camera. I have noticed that lot of actors use that method which gives them an inch advantage. What's your thought Rob?
[Editor Rob: his boot looked normal, there wasn't any kind of evidence to me, but he has 2 tricks, pull you in a little and the one-foot rise.]
Samcro said on 19/Jun/15
Thanks for the reply Rob, I should practise that He makes it look quite natural, which makes it difficult to notice.
Samcro said on 14/Jun/15
So how does the trick work, He looks taller than rob on his most recent photo. Would like to learn that trick
[Editor Rob: it's a trick I explained in a video I did last year Click Here, I call it the Cobra in the clip.

That is basically what Milo was doing with guys that I watched...with ladies he wasn't bothering as much. But it's shifting weight and pushing up onto one leg for a bit of extra height. You can see Milo doing it with Routh here.]
Editor Rob said on 29/Apr/15
This is the technique he now does in lots of photos
Click Here
I mentioned it in my video about 'Sly Photo Tips'. Just shifting onto more of a one-leg stance to give an extra half inch of height.
JB said on 9/Apr/15
Ya who cares that he rounded up half an inch? Some guys add inches to their height and its insane.
b-mint1994 said on 21/Mar/15
@Dan: He rounded up half an inch. That's not as bad as the guys who add 2-3 inches to their height
Dan said on 7/Feb/15
It makes me a little mad that he claimed 5'9 because it makes us "real" 5'9ers look shorter than we actually are.
Ali Baba said on 17/Dec/14
Adrian Pasdar looks nearly suicidal in that pic. Hopefully he was more cheerful in person than the pic would make it seem.
Eclipse said on 29/Nov/14
I find his ''up-on-one-foot''trick to be amusing! Obviously, he didn't seem height cautious when Rob met him back in 2007. 5'8.5 tops!
JB said on 23/Nov/14
I'm surprised he's as tall as he is. On gilmore girls he looked short, I thought he looked 5'7" tops. I'm surprised he's 5'9"(or close enough to it.)
Junior31 said on 19/Nov/14
Rob when you met him did you ask him how tall Stallone was??? If not and you met him again could you! This can be a piece of that difficult puzzle!
[Editor Rob: he never went up on his feet back the first time I seen him, then this year watched him with people and he was raising up a bit for men mostly, a little trick maybe Sly himself has passed on to him :)]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/14
In most pictures I've seen, Adrian Pasdar has at least 2in on him. Either he's a fraction over 5ft10 or Milo is 5ft8 tops.
Andrew M said on 4/Oct/14
A leading man in a hit show, and less than 5'9"! He's done alright!
Chris said on 29/Sep/14
Does he wear lifts in these shots?Click Here
His shoes look stuffed, but shouldnt his kneecaps be higher too if he had lifts in there?
184.3cm said on 28/Sep/14
Madness..he goes from looking 173cm to looking 176cm years later. doesnt look too happy either.
[Editor Rob: it's not madness, he's got better posture more shoes and goes up on one foot with men in photos.]
Josh b said on 3/Sep/14
Click Here
As Rob stated, Milo seemed height aware and was up on one foot to get some advantage.
[Editor Rob: a half inch gain just from a slight foot raise. One of G's tricks I believe.]
Dmeyer said on 21/Jul/14
Rob if not looking at 0.4in advantage how tall did he look
[Editor Rob: he could look near 175, but he was up and down on one foot in that session...mainly with guys.]
Andrea said on 16/Jul/14
Yeah, i said it! :) In fact, there are some shots where he can look taller than this... Wouldnt surprise me if he borrowed some lifts from G too ;)
Editor Rob said on 15/Jul/14
7 years later I saw him again...and as a fellow forum member would attest, in photos now he seems more 'Height aware', with men he was going up a little bit on one foot for a slight bit of extra height, a trick that he learned from G :)
5'9 5'10 said on 8/May/14
Your eye level seems higher but again you guys are only a half an inch apart depending on the eye to chin level someone with a lower eye level can look taller.
Kemalettin said on 6/May/14
Rob are you sure he is 5ft 8,5 inch? He look same as Tom cruise 1,72 cm. Maybe he have a high insoles lifts in the shoes?
[Editor Rob: I think he can be 5ft 8.5, I don't think he is as short as 172cm, he looks taller than that.]
Andrea said on 9/Apr/14
Rob, did he start wearing lifts?
Click Here
He does look taller than 5'8.5 with solid 6'2.5 Brandon Routh... (and he probably isn't even 5'8.5)
[Editor Rob: well looking at the other shot, Routh is in sub inch sneakers, Milo is in thicker boots, he could have about 0.75 inch footwear Milo is standing with a hip-shift on one foot which can add another cm...suddenly you are gaining a bit more height than normal.]
Persian said on 7/Mar/14
173/174 so clean ( 173,5 cm ) not more !
johnmcc said on 23/Dec/13
This is quite shocking as well i thought he was at least 177cm. Doesnt look any taller than Rob here.
LG69 said on 26/Nov/13
@MD, there could be something to that. I remember Adam Richman being listed at 5'11". This was in his early days of "Man vs Food." Recently, he has been listed at 6'. I know he lost weight, but that won't give him 1". He didn't appear 5'11" to me, let alone 6'. Always thought he looked 5'10-5'10.5"max.
MD said on 13/Nov/13
Mickelson's height "increase" has nothing to do with his physical growth (and certainly not in his 30's) and everything to do with him becoming more famous. This happens with a lot of athletes.
LG69 said on 11/Nov/13
I don't know how much yoga can give a person in height, but the golfer, Phil Mickelson, was known to grow about 1" in his 30's. He was always listed at 6'2", but about 5 years ago his height was listed at 6'3". When asked about it, Phil said his growth spurt was probably due to his yoga sessions. I heard his yoga instructor say that she grew 1/4 of an inch. Yoga decompresses the spine, and can cause a person to stand taller. This yoga instructor admitted 1" is unlikely but not impossible.
Wiven said on 27/Sep/13
He may be 5'8 but measure at 5'9 after yoga sessions, what yoga does is decompress the spine and give better posture to give you the natural height you are supposed to be.
cole said on 11/Aug/13
How was his footwear btw?
[Editor Rob: roughly same, within 0.2 inches]
cole said on 11/Aug/13
174 cm is right. Could maybe look close to 175 in the picture with you Rob, but he seems a tiny bit closer to the camera.
Edlt2882 said on 5/Aug/13
I was next to this guy at Comic-Con several years ago. I am 5.725 and when he was next to me, he seemed close to 5.11. But I looked at his shoes, and the boots he was wearing gave him three inches on me easy. So 5.8 does seem valid.
Ed Kline said on 25/Jul/13
No doubt at least an inch taller than Taylor Lautner in Grown Ups 2.
Mike said on 19/May/13
Can yoga over time give you an inch and a half?
Johno said on 8/May/13
BEB said on 4/Apr/13
I'm not doubting Milo, but can yoga really boost you up one and a half inches?
Mathew said on 10/Nov/12
Looks like he's added the 1.5 yoga inches to his 5'9" claim because he doesn't even look as tall as Rob. But then again that's only going by this picture, I'm otherwise unfirmiliar with him.
Silent d said on 27/Sep/12
I was quite shocked how short he was because i thought he was at least 5 foot 10. After watching pathology he looked 5 foot 8. I'll give him 174cm. Wasn't that tall next to alyssa milano who is 5 foot 2.
Yaspaa said on 25/Aug/12
He may edge out Rob in real life, but not in the pic, regardless of chin or eye level.
lol93 said on 21/Jan/12
guys he is 5'9 probably out of bead and he drops to 174cm after 2-3 hours he may be 173 at night, so 174cm is correct if he had the same footwear with Rob if Rob had less he could be a weak 5'8
ChiasmataX said on 20/Dec/11
@c-mo If Milo is indeed 174cm then Rob is indeed 175cm. Just look at the picture, Rob is further from the camera and Milo is nearer. Usually the nearer you are to the camera the bigger/taller you look. Even this advantage Milo is shorter than Rob. Unless it was his posture or something I can't see him taller than Rob.
c-mo said on 14/Dec/11
you guys are just hilarious this guy is obviously 174cm no less than 173cm for sure ...5'7 ? yeah right... stop downgrading everybody !
avi said on 1/Dec/11
Rob are you 5'9.5 because if hes 5'9 you must be
Physics Enemy said on 9/Nov/11
0.5" shorter than 5' 8.25" Rob. 5' 7.75" or 172 cm then.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 1/Nov/11
looks a bit shorter than rob here...
Will said on 26/Sep/11
Milo is 5'7" tall just by looking at the photo.
Chuck said on 17/Aug/11
Worked as an extra on set with Milo. I'm 5'7 and he was no taller than me. We were stood face to face in the scene and whilst I can't say exactly how tall he was, he was no 5'9! I honestly don't think he's even 5'8. We both had sneakers on.
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 3/Aug/11
"i dont know, i am 5'9" makes him sound like a muppet lol..he doesnt know then suddenly he does? clearly the sign of a guy whoes wondering if he can get away with rounding up lol he looks 5'8 flat if his hair was like yours rob!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jun/11
172-173cm with Rob.
Legend said on 12/May/11
He's hardly even 5'8 flat.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Apr/11
172cm(5"7.75) in this picture

Does not look 174cm(5"8.5) at all
Aaron said on 20/Apr/11
It's a good thing to be short and look tall? I wouldn't really agree; wouldn't that mean you have a weaker build than other 5'9" guys who are more robust and therefore look 5'9"?
ano said on 21/Mar/11
this guy definitely looks taller. Great body proportions!

I look like him and am just a bit taller. So obviously not jealous one bit!! LOL!
James said on 26/Feb/11
In the pic looks no more than 173cm
5'7.56 said on 22/Jan/11
Milo might be 5'8.25 at most, he wasn't standing straight but he looks a quarter of an inch shorter than Rob in here, therefore 5'8.5 doesn't seem like it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jan/11
Looking 5"8(173cm)
danny said on 15/Dec/10
idont know but seems milo is shorter
Will said on 5/Dec/10
Milo is 5'7 1/2". He is half an inch shorter than 5'8" Rob.
Ron Mexico said on 15/Oct/07
I read in mens health or fitness, the one with him on the cover that he is 5'9'' 155 lbs
antron said on 14/Oct/07
what reason does that site have to exaggerate? Here are various other listings at or near 6-4, one of which is ESPN, hardly a BS listing : Click Here
Click Here the NFL's official site and Chargers official site has him at 6-4 as well. I can't find any listing of him at 6-2. The shortest I find him is 6-3 and change. It doesn't really bother me if he's 6-2, I just don't have any evidence he is. Do a google search for "Shawne Merriman 6-2" and there are no matches for the 6-2; substitute 6-4, and everything matches. I will concede that maybe he's just convinced everyone he is 6-4, but I doubt he's far from it, if at all.
Brah said on 14/Oct/07
Also, the woman in that Balboa pic is Geraldine Hughes...She is 5'3" and with those heels would be closer to 5'6".
So, Sly may be close to 6 feet (in his elevators) there....
Brah said on 14/Oct/07
That Rocky Balboa picture is deceptive. Sly is actually much further back than Burt Young and Milo. You can tell because Milo only weighed 137 pounds at the time (he put on some muscle this year for 'Heroes') and his frame is absolutely tiny compared to Sly's.
Yet, the photo makes you think otherwise.
Viper said on 14/Oct/07
"Merriman measured at 6'4.3" in the 2005 combine"

Thats a BS listing when other sources say 6-2 and Ive seen him in person.
dmeyer said on 14/Oct/07
the shoes he has beside ventimigglia are huge they look like monsters and he still look only 5'9

[Editor Rob: they're elevators sly's wearing for sure. Nowhere near 6ft in them...but, the photo is I think beneficial to Milo. You can see he's taller than milo without doubt in other pics.]
Lynn said on 14/Oct/07
do you think Milo had lifts at the Balboa premiere?
Click Here

[Editor Rob: wearing lifts when standing within 5 feet of Sly is not a good idea...]
antron said on 14/Oct/07
Merriman measured at 6'4.3" in the 2005 combine : Click Here
dmeyer said on 13/Oct/07
rob waths funny is that in the pic were sly looks only 1 cm on milo so 175 cm his shoes are suspicious so sly could be 5'7.5

[Editor Rob: someone said there's no pics of sly looking 5ft 8. Well, the milo with me and then sly with milo can show such rarities as occuring. Of course he wears elevators, so we can take him down to 5ft 7 as william goldman saw ;)

Nah, I think there's a little advantage in angle in that photo, sly is bigger.]
dmeyer said on 13/Oct/07
he looks barely as tall as you so max 174 by that mark sly looks the same in some photos
Viper said on 13/Oct/07
Looks nothing over 5-8 with 6-2.4 measured Shawne Merriman. Though Merriman is closer to the camera. Click Here
Franco said on 13/Oct/07
his body is dead on of a 173-174cm guy, actually more 174cm than 173cm.

besides Rob was standing more straight while Milo is slightly curvedm if he were straight he'd be 1cm taller than ROb.

so 174cm is definetely Milo's height and dare i say, an easy one to spot.
Kevin Durant said on 12/Oct/07
I think Milo Ventimiglia is a 5'8" because he is the same height as Editor Rob. In the recent Rocky Movie Sylvester Stallone is at least 2" taller than him.
bam said on 12/Oct/07
rob, how do you get to meet so many celebs? Are all photos you take in the UK?

[Editor Rob: yes all uk, that was at london film con on early september.]
Anthony said on 12/Oct/07
That's a seriously awesome photo, Rob.

[Editor Rob: they only smiled in a handful, so they looked grumpy in lots of those pics that day. They were knackered that day. If I'd went later in the queue I'd not have been able to stand between them, they were just shoving folk in front of them...]
leonari said on 12/Oct/07
ROB: Let me put it differently: Can you rule out a ful 5'9" for Milo?

[Editor Rob: at best a very strong 174cm, but this mark is best estimate for the moment]
Lynn said on 12/Oct/07
Uhm... now I have some doubts.

Here seems taller.. very taller... something like 6'-6'1"
Click Here

are you sure Milo had not his knees bent in your pic?

[Editor Rob: are you trying to imply Stallone can look 5ft 8 in a photo :P

!There you have it, although stallone does have a good 2 inches on milo when he's in elevator shoes, that wouldn't be sly's favorite photo...

nah, he's standing pretty normal.]
Anonymous said on 12/Oct/07
I agree he is no more than 5'8 barefoot
Antron said on 12/Oct/07
Upon this examination, he's 5'8" no more no less
Lynn said on 12/Oct/07
I think you already knew that Milo is your same height, don't you?
paul said on 12/Oct/07
how talls that other guy adrian?
leonari said on 12/Oct/07
So a full 5'9" for Milo is out of the question. He is 5'8" if you ask me. What do you say ROB???????

[Editor Rob: would need to see him more.]
derbi said on 12/Oct/07
Rob, he doesn't look taller than you in the pic. Is he though?
What kinda footwear did he have on?

[Editor Rob: they looked like laced black stan smith type so near to 1 inch. I was in 1.06 nike that day.]
Lkris said on 8/Oct/07
Milo looks really short in this pic when we know that Masi Oka is 5'6". And if you see where their feet are Milo seems to be in front of the others.. So i dont know how to explain this pic.. do you?

dmeyer said on 25/Sep/07
close in height with sly
antron said on 19/Sep/07
Described as 5'9" in Men's Fitness this month. Looks it, could be slightly shorter, 5'8" and change... but not 5'7."
JJ said on 18/Sep/07
Hi guys, Milo was the post-emmy party last night, and right outside where we located him he had normal dress shoes and I would say 5'9 is his legit height -- he's a small dude, average skinny!
Big-T said on 19/Aug/07
then how come he looks 2 inches shorter than supposdely 5'9" Adrian Pasdar on Heroes?

[Editor Rob: never seen 2 inches of difference in their scenes.]
kate said on 8/Aug/07
he's definately 5'9 cause i once saw him in santa monica like near one of those british pubs and i'm 5'8 and he was a bit taller than me when i passed by.
Krupa said on 15/Jul/07
Yeah, he's no tall boy. I would say 5'8 at most... still towers over my 5'1 self lmao.

I just discovered this website! It's quite fascinating.
Josh said on 23/Jun/07
No more than 5'8 (173cm).
wasa said on 11/Jun/07
I think he's 174cm to be exact.

Man, Every celeb is short nowdays, The new era.
Ron Mexico said on 15/May/07
if you see the new fergie video, milo is the love interest in it, and even if she is at her absolute tallest measurement in it, it would make him around 5'7.5'' because he is a just a forehead taller
Elisabeth said on 10/May/07
I think he is between 5'8" & 5'9".Which is also known as average height.
Elisabeth said on 10/May/07
I am guessing around 5'8".But maybe Sarah is right.But,I do know that he is about average height.No affense Milo.
sarah said on 10/May/07
i saw him in california once and i'm 5'8 and was a little taller, so i'm guessing about 5'9
Scarlet said on 18/Mar/07
I see Stallone at 5'9 and Ventimiglia at 5'7-5'8. Milo has a very slim body type. If he was taller he would look longer.
horacle said on 13/Mar/07
No scarlet i see more stallone at 5'9.5 and milo at 5'8.5. They have made stallone taller because he is his father in rocky.
Scarlet said on 12/Mar/07
Yes sorry I mean 2 inches shorter than Stallone. Milo is about 5'7
timber said on 11/Mar/07
MD, I think Scarlet meant 2 inches shorter, not taller.
MD said on 10/Mar/07
lol @ Scarlet. So, Stallone is 5'5"?! LOL! You're really putting a strain on your credibility, Scarlet.
Scarlet said on 9/Mar/07
2 inches taller than Stallone in Rocky Balboa. I say 5'7 for Milo
horacle said on 1/Mar/07
i think he is 5'8.5 no more no less
AAAA said on 20/Feb/07
Merriman was measured at 6'4 at the combine, so that would put Milo at 58.5-5'9. Probably like 5'9
Viper said on 6/Feb/07
Hes looking 5-7 with 6-2.4 Shawne Merriman Click Here

[Editor Rob: you need to go to the erika christensen page to see how to link to getty properly, I showed an example of how a link should look on that page]
Scarlet said on 18/Jan/07
Silvester Stallone is 67 inches barefeet without stilt size lifts. Ventimiglia is 65-66 inches.
Lucky said on 24/Dec/06
i met him onece once he looks to be 5`8
MD said on 6/Dec/06
Good find, Y-Man.
Josh said on 24/Aug/06
I´m not sure hes 5'9 , He looks to be a solid 5'8 (173cm) alexis bledel is around 5'6.5 and hes barely 2 inches taller I also saw that in She´s all that hes one of the boys who cleans Laney´s house and he looks way shorter than Freddie Prinze Jr. hes probably 5'9 with sneakers.
Emily said on 18/Nov/05
He was filming at your school? You are sooo lucky!
Katie said on 30/Sep/05
I just saw him today filming at my school...he seems pretty short and skinny, but then again i was a few meters away.
caulfield said on 24/Sep/05
If barely looks taller than Alexis, it means he's correct because Alexis Bledel is 5'7"
Wizerd said on 18/May/05
Hes not that tall, he barely looked taller than Alexis Bedel
