If Depp is listed here 5'9, Bloom cannot be a 5'10.5 guy. He's barely tall than Johnny. So or Johnny he's 5'10 or Bloom is 5'9.5

Look at this pic with Viggo Mortensen Click Here

Clearly an inch shorter, and Viggo is listed here 5'10.75, Bloom is a 5'10 guy. Nothing more.

Miranda Kerr is 5'7.5-5'8.Check her out on chelsea lately! (chelsea is 5'6).As for orlando,judging from pictures and his ellen interview he look's 5'9.5-5'10.
P.S. You can still be a supermodel at 5'7.5-5'8.Kate Moss anyone?? (:

Orlando has some huge boots and a suit jacket and barely reaches Keira Knightley shoulder. If we look in the other side of Keira we find Johnny Depp with no boots, just some fancy shoes and no jacket and he definetly passes Keira shoulder. Orlando needs a downgrade.
JohnnyRB said on 16/Nov/11
Johnny Depp and Orlando. They are the same height, maybe Johnny its a little taller because he is slouching.

In troy he looked small. A lttle taller than diane kruger and at least 12cm shorter than 6 foot 3 bana. He did look 175 next to pitt but that was probably camera effects. 179cm and kerr is 175cm. She is a supermodel.
Physics Enemy said on 5/Nov/11
179.5 in footwear that is.
LAN Jiao said on 3/Nov/11
johnny depp could have dip into 172 min , so bloom is possible 176cm and brad pitt still dead's on 177cm , bana height had commented descibed by stan lee his 6'0-1/8 but i"ll be generous to gave bana 184cm.
LAN Jiao said on 2/Nov/11
bloom is between 176-177, brad pitt without activate his feet in heels he is 177cm firmly and eric banana is right dead on between 185-186cm.
Silent d said on 31/Oct/11
Miranda is 175cm and orlando is 179cm. What are you talking about elenoir regenfan? They are not that short.
elenoir regenfran said on 28/Oct/11
he's 173 tall and miranda is 165 that's all. i walked pass them and i'm a 175 tall :) THAT'S ALL.

I recently walked past Orlando Bloom in New Zealand. I am 177cm - he was definitely taller than me and we were both wearing casual shoes. I would say a flat 5'11" is about right
paul86 said on 9/Oct/11
179.5 cm or 5'10 3/4' and rounds up to 5'11' ^_^
Koalized said on 7/Oct/11
Look at the pictures of Bloom with Mortensen. I think than Bloom should be under 177 cm.
Sabre said on 25/Sep/11
I would think he would make Johnny Depp look rather small if this was accurate but he never seemed to... We could say it was special effects but in reality those can only be used as an excuse to whatever extent.

The wax measurement is a joke, if bana is 6'1 how can he be 180, it is insane.

i would just guess that if tussauds fly someone around the world, take hundreds of measurements, pick the exact matching eye colour/hair colour/skin colour etc and have been doing this kind of stuff for nigh on 150 years now, that they can measure height pretty well..

who said bana was 6'1?? he looked an inch shorter than lou ferrigno 10 years ago

Rob if you list him 179 cm it means hé could very well ne measured 179.5 cm by 11am that mesurment seems honest they could havé said 180.5
Tess said on 8/Sep/11
no ways. He is 5"9. I've seem him in the Canne Film Festival. I am 5"9.5, and he was no taller of course and neither was he shorter.
dmeyer said on 3/Sep/11
rob i do believe he could mesure 179.5cm he could be 181cm out of bed and 179 cm bed and 179.5 afternoon , they could have said 179 180 181 if they said 179.5 he could measure that at some point , i think he is similar height to pitt , pitt can look taller when in bigger footwear and posture 179cm fits the guy
[Editor Rob: would have been interesting to actually see the measurement of him as we have no idea how the measurement of 179.5cm was done...]
Koalized said on 30/Aug/11
[Editor Rob: the voiceover doesn't match the video. He's being photographed, not measured in that clip.

stoodnext2 said on 30/Aug/11
no need for debate; he was measured BAREFOOT on video at 179.5 (I'm assuming the was an afternoon measurement so he's give or take); He's around 5'10-5'11 case closed. I say lets use him to compare the heights of the trickier ones.
@ naomii said on 26/Aug/11
he looks probably 5'9.5 next to pitt.but he just doesn't have as good posture as pitt has.if he was meaured 5'10.5 then i think it's right.but maybe 179.5 is just his height at noon.maybe he's 180.5 when he wakes up and 177.5 at evening.
naomii said on 14/Aug/11
orlando is not 5'10 because brad piit is "5'11" and ive seen pictures and orlando looks wayy shorter i think he is 5'8 - 5'9 and miranda kerr is 5'7 and he is like an inch or 2 taller then her (without shoes)
Koalized said on 9/Aug/11
I used to think Orlando Bloom was about 178 cm tall, but after seeing the pictures of him with Pitt and Bana posted below...I think that Bloom cannot be more tall than 177 cm, if even that.

You seem to have met just about every celeb, do yourself a favour, and stop trolling.
Moke said on 30/Jul/11
You couldn't see a difference in height between him an Viggo Mortensen in L.O.T.R. at all. I doubt the gave him elevator shoes cause they're too close in height anyway. Bloom with 5'7 Dominic Monaghan: he's closer to the cam, sure, but it's still obvious he has about 3-4'' on Monaghan. No need for discussion whether he's under 5'10.
Cobain said on 29/Jul/11
@ orlando is TALL,

Clearly you didn't click on the second, third or even forth pictur in that show reel. One can clearly see that she is taller than him in heels. Look where their shoulders line up.

As for your "why would he go for one of the tallest super models who is around" comment. Errrr.....because shes attractive. I take it you never heard of Tom Cruise.
orlando is TALL said on 28/Jul/11
think about this while looking at the below picture: Orlando's wife, Miranda Kerr, is a SUPER MODEL who is AT LEAST 5'9 (maybe even 5'10)...and in EVERY SINGLE PICTURE of them together EVEN the ones with her in HIGH HEELS, he is taller or AT LEAST THE SAME as her in heels. that would mean he is AT LEASTT 5'11. look at this CANDID, VERY STRAIGHT FORWARD picture of Orlando and Miranda, she is wearing 3 inch HEELS and they are the SAME height, putting him at at LEAST 5'11 to 6 ft like he says:
Click Here

i think that settles it, unless you all want to claim that Orlando is wearing man heels in his shoes every picture of them together, hahaha. plus, if he was a short 5'9 guy why would he go for one of the tallest super models who is around 5'10? he is tall, which is why they look like a perfect match in all pics.

in "troy", they probably purposely tried to make eric bana and the others look a lot taller for effect of his character, thats what movies do.
Dominic said on 20/Jul/11
Rob do you think the difference between Pitt and Bloom is too big to ignore?
Click Here

We can't see feet but fair to say Pitt is dwarfing him every time.
[Editor Rob: I can't see the photo, but I think I know the ones you refer too where he has appeared a few inches taller.

Bloom is supposed to have been measured 179.5cm, how can the guy be 5ft 9-10 if he's 'owning' a 5ft 10.6 guy?]
Dominic said on 20/Jul/11
Tapia your links don't work but Im aware of the photos you're talking about. I definitely think Pitt was wearing lifts in that photo. Never thought he was a legit 180. But even so there's no way he should have that much height over Bloom. Bloom could really be 176 range, I never thought he was that much taller than Depp and these photos are proof. Click Here

Orlando usually has a friendly gesture to put the arm around other's neck, and that makes him lift while the other shrinks and appears shorter.
Here's an example with Eric Bana: Click Here

Photos from the Cannes premiere of "Troy" with Eric Bana (189) and Brad Pitt (180):Click Here

Photo (from Zimbio) expanded and with lines of perspective (the floor tiles are very useful): Click Here

I don't know if Brad is really 180 (looks to me right) or if he wears any "help", but Orlando is shorter than Brad and I don't think there is only 1 cm difference between Brad and Orlando. The wax museum hight in which they say he just needs half centimeters to reach 180 cm, seems unreal. I believe that are more than 10 cm difference between him and Eric. The "nearly 6 ft" coment, must be a joke.

Around 5'9 for Orlando, even 5'10 seem to much, although he has very poor posture so maybe he reaches that.

In these pictures, it is clear that Pitt is wearing his finest of lifts, because he is with Eric Bana. Bloom and Pitt is about the same height barefoot, 177-179 cm.
Josh B said on 30/Jun/11
DrJJ, although you seem to have taken specific notice of Bloom's footwear, you fail to see that Pitt is closer to the camera, has better posture and a footwear advantage of Bean.
DrJJ said on 28/Jun/11
Pinky, I love the first picture with Bloom headlocking Bana. Look closely at Bloom's feet and you can see he's on tiptoes with heels NOT in contact with the floor. Also, regardless of Pitt's true height, Sean Bean cannot be 5'10.5" inches as listed on this site. The lines of perspective show him to be a good 1.5" shorter than Pitt, making him 5'9.5" at very best.
Dasher said on 27/Jun/11
Good job Pinky!
You nailed him! Now it's impossible to mantain that he's nearly 5'11" anymore. Wether Brad Pitt is 5'11 or 5'10" it doesn't change barely a thing, he's closer to 5'9" than to 5'10". I would dare to say 5'9" on the dot. Time for a downgrade. Rob?

He is shorter than both Bana 6'2" and Brad Pitt 5'11".
Frankie said on 20/May/11
There is no way Bloom is 5'10". Watch him in Troy next to a legit 6'2" Eric Bana. Bana makes Bloom look like a little boy. Most likely 5'9" or even less.

Rob do you think he could be as low as 176-177? If hes 179.5 on the board surely he must be at least 177 barefoot and probably close to 176 nighttime barefoot? What do you think?

Anonymous, I come to this site and post occasionally, but it does not mean that I don't have a life. Isn't it OK to be curious about certain things as long as you don't go overboard with that curiosity? For example, how much money certain people make....where certain celebrities live.....and yes, how tall they are. The key, like most things in life, is moderation.
Gregorovich said on 16/Jan/11
If you take the Getty image from Vegas below and do a cut and past on Orlando Blom and put him directly next to Pitt, Bloom is cleary 2 inches shorter than Pit (assuming neither are wearing lifts). If we accept Pit is 5.11, Bloom is around 5.9"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jan/11

LOL you people are so sad...got on this site to win a bet...but reading some posts I am surprised to see so many people who have such a life that makes them give a sh*t how tall Orlando or Brad are??? are you guys kidding? get a life? to those making them shorter I say jealousy is a personality killer...and to those making them taller, trust me they are not better than you so don't suck up...
Unbelievable
Larry said on 18/Dec/10
That's a good pick of a liftless Bloom next to a Lift wearing Pitt. In reality Bloom is only slightly shorter than Pitt, I'd give Bloom legitimately 5 9 no more than 9 5.5, he is in fact slightly taller than his supermodel wife Miranda Kerr who claims 5 9 herself ( but we all know models tend to lie about their height by at least a half an inch), and then a liftless Pitt would be somewhere from 5 9.25 and 5 10, as is proven by the barefoot pic of him and Paltrow. And we don't really know if Bana wears lifts or not, but either way he does seem to be a strong 6 2

He is at at least 1.5-2 inches shorter than Brad. I think he is 177 cm max, since it is widely believed Brad is 180 cm max.

5 ft 10.5 inches is a little generous for him.

I don't want to sound arrogant, but I have yet to see a pic with bloom looking above 5-9. is there one? I think he was dwarfed by Trump and Pitt seemed a lot taller too. only reason i believe he could be 5-10 is because of the comments below here

Well 179.5cm is 5ft10.75. So Rob upgrade??
Anonymous said on 26/Apr/09
Shorter than Brad, not that taller from 5"6-7 Keira. Brad is 180cm - nothing more. Bloom: very lean physique, big hair and long and skinny legs. Shorter than Liv Tyler. 177-178 cm is a good number, which is 5ft 10 at most.

PS: LotR movies can not be a reference for anything, since they played with heights and lighting so much, everyone looked different from what they actually are.

Damo said on 18/Apr/09
I guess you don't know until you stand next to them. I'm 178.5 which is a good height i think. The actors usually always seem to add more height than what they are. I was shocked to hear Brad Pitt was about the same as me even though its a good height. When he stand next to Angelina you'd think he was 6'1 or something.
Doug said on 11/Apr/09
Looks around 4 inches shorter than Donald Trump. Looks a similar height to Brad Pitt to me, I'd say 179cm is about right.
elly said on 10/Apr/09
Miranda Kerr is supposed to be 1.75 cm, Orlando about 1.80..but it really doesn't appear that he is just 5 cm taller than Miranda! ( I mean, she's a supermodel, could she be smaller than 1.75??) Pheraps Orlando is more than 1.80..?

I have Depp at 5'9.5" and Bloom at more like 5'10.75".

He is no more than 1.76 cm believe me. a few months ago i stood almost next to him, didnt get a picture, but i'm 1.74cm and he was not much longer than me!
Complex said on 8/Mar/09
I never see more than an inch difference between him and depp, so who knows, depp is argued anywhere from 5'7-5'9, personally I say 5'9 tops for Depp and Bloom is likely 5'9.75, virtually 5'10 but 5'11 seems a stretch..

he looks 180 cm moro or less it's very difficult to say he is 179.5 cm or 180.0 or 179 and in every photo we don't know so much about shoes so he can wear 1.5 cm converse or 5 cm cowboy boots

I'm sure Pitt's wax figure would be measured at 6'4 or something,lol!

On that photo complex gave further down the page, either orlando bloom is a lot shorter than I thought or donald trump is taller than 6'2 because there looks about 6 inches between them. Unless its just a dodgy photo making bloom look a bit shorter,
Complex said on 26/Jan/09
Really when you think about it, waxfigures don't have to be exact, i'm sure shorter actors try to get their waxfigure measurements higher as not to appear short. I'm sure Pitt's wax figure would be measured at 6'4 or something,lol! Heck they prolly even gave cruise a 5'9-5'10 wax figure instead of the 5'6-5'7 that he is. Personally I think Bloom is anywhere between 5'9.75 to the 5'10.5 we have him at here, i think 179 is max for him tho!
Aratirion said on 25/Jan/09
As far as I can remember he had no puffy hair at all in that video. And what sense would it make to include the platform? They have to measure him closely so that they can make an accurate waxfigure. I guess it wouldn't be helpfull if they included "senseless cm's". 179.5 for Bloom is exactly what he is looking on most pictures and what he looks all the time next to other people. Fits perfectly with a 1.76,77 Johnny Depp by the way.
Complex said on 24/Jan/09
Vegas i'm not saying everything must go through me, my opinion shouldn't make any difference. But when someone is trying to convince me of something, they should show me proof. That's why I said "when I see it I believe it" in response to "Complex, he was measured on video at 179". So if a post is directed towards me then yes something should be verified if they want ME to believe it, but if we're discussing height in general and most have seen this video, then it's not an issue but if ya'll want me to believe it, show me proof. Actually the more everyone keeps sayin it the less I believe it happened, makes me wonder if ya'll aren't just teaming up to support ya'lls claims. So if ya'll want me to believe it, show me proof, if not, then don't use the whole "bloom was measured" thing to run down my claims.
GUK said on 22/Jan/09
>The question is were they including the approx 1 inch platform he was stood on.
I don't know, they just took the measurement to the top of his head and said "179.5" if that was measured from the floor they would need to deduct the height of the platform to give his real height, but I would expect they measured from the platform. They were taking lots of measurements, if they were really inaccurate the waxwork wouldn't look right. The platform revolves so they can take quick measurements. I've tried to look for the video but it's no longer on youtube. It looked like a DVD extra from a pirates film
miser said on 22/Jan/09
...or do you think they gave out his height with the platform included? Do these statues stand on the very same platform?
miser said on 22/Jan/09
>The question is were they including the approx 1 inch platform he was stood on.

Why do you think he wasn't supposed to be on the platform? Isn't Salman Khan also standing on a platform in the video posted below?
GUK said on 21/Jan/09
Lots of people on this site saw it. The question is were they including the approx 1 inch platform he was stood on. Whichever way he's minimum an inch less than 179.5 which means 177 absolute minimum. So almost 5ft 10 to almost 5ft 11 is his height 179 seems the fairest compromise
Vegas said on 21/Jan/09
complex you are acting like everything must go through you to be verified lol

we can't post the link because the video has since been removed, mee posted it the video on 3/Aug/08 on this page, as you can see the video has been removed from youtube, it was posted on numerous pages on this website between august and september, loads of people saw it
Complex said on 21/Jan/09
Leung, if I see it, i'll believe it. I believe it when I see proof like that. But when ppl post things like someone looking 2 inches taller yet in huge shoes possible lifts, I don't call that proof. Heck we've all seen Pitt/Paltrow barefoot Pitt looking same height and at best 1' taller yet everyone overlooks that, so ppl are gonna believe what they wanna believe. Even you leung often ignore proof, but if someone shows me a video of him being measured at that height, I swear i'd believe it, but i've never seen it, if I owned lotr I would check it out but I neve got into the rings movies as much. Why can't someone just post the damn link to the video and that would end the discussion, lol! Pardon the language but geeze, look at it from my point of view. That's the same as me tellin ya'll "I saw a video of Sly measured at 5'8, so it's true, I saw it" No one would believe it til they saw it.

Complex,
The link to the video was on here a while back and many of us saw it, if you missed out then tough. I recall that it was footage taken from LOTR bonus DVD stuff so if you are so keen to see it then look for it yourself.

The guy measured Bloom (barefoot) and clearly states 179.5cm but I think that the measurement included Bloom
Complex said on 18/Jan/09
Rising I know, i've heard that is what i'm saying but never seen it. Just like i've heard Bloom was measured but i've never seen any link to that either. W/o a video sayin Bloom got measured at 5'11 is pointless, cuz with that mentality we could say he was measured at 6'2 but we don't know where the vid is, lol! Doesn't make sense til we see it.

The video has been deleted on youtube, I fear. But quite a time ago it was there and a couple of people saw it back then. He was measured barefoot.
Maybe anyone finds it ...

i saw it, he was in his socks, the video was up long enough here before being deleted, madame tussauds measure people in their socks NOT their shoes just like Salman Khan here Click Here

bloom was measured at 179.5cm in socks

How do we know Cruise was measured at 5'6.75"? I've never seen any link to that.
Complex said on 16/Jan/09
Rising Cruise was measured at 5'6.75, doesn't mean much til we see it, does anyone have the vid of him getting measured and i'll believe. Coulda been measured in shoes. Everyone always mentions he was measured but I never see proof. I've heard on numerous accounts cruise was measured as 5'6.75 but i've never seen proof, proof is what we need ppl :)
RisingForce said on 16/Jan/09
Bloom was measured 179.5 cm so 5'10.5"/5'10.75". Depp is a legit 5'9.5" barefoot.
Complex said on 15/Jan/09
I don't think he's over 5'10, 5'11-6'0 barefoot would seem a stretch. Here he is with 6'2 donald trump and Bloom is in boots:

That nearly 6feet claim is more than likely in shoes.

if he was measured at 179,5 why not give him 5ft10.75 ?
it sounds like some evidence were all looking for.

He might of been 176cm in his youth.

"And you've measured him yourself and know he's 5ft10, miser?"

No. I havn't claimed his height had "been proven - not theorized based on assumption" like you did, lol.

"I base knowledge that Depp is 175cm / 5ft9 from the Astronauts Wife where he's barefoot with a lady of 177cm / 5ft9.75 and he be 2cm shorter."

It didn't really show that he is "2cm shorter", it could be 1cm or zero cm shorter... they appeared the same as far as one can accuratelly tell. If she is about 5-10 so is he.

"Now, female models are more accurate listings than their male co-stars, "

Lol, this is a totally misguided conception that is responsible for screwing up many listings in this website, which tends to under-list leading male actors and over-list "tallish" actresses and models. Pretty much every "tallish" women are over-rated in this website, look up the Charlie Sheen - Brooke Shields example I posted below. Truth is women lie about their height just as much as they lie about weight...

"these women rarely 'fudge' height if they're over that 5ft7 minimum requirement to become a model."

Honestly I think this is another totally misguided conception of yours. I don't know a whole lot about models but I heard 5-10 is minimum for "runway" models. Maybe our friend "C." could comment on this, she is a tall girl.
DMEYER said on 17/Dec/08
i walked by him i had a lidl floor advantage and he seemed 5 ft 9.5 i had 1 IN shoes so 6 ft then i wore high cut dress boots he looked nearly my height i would say 5 ft 10.25 to 5 ft 10.5 if he had lifts then he is 5 ft10 or under if they were normal 1.3 in dress boots then he is solid 5 ft 10
Vibram said on 17/Dec/08
And you've measured him yourself and know he's 5ft10, miser? I base knowledge that Depp is 175cm / 5ft9 from the Astronauts Wife where he's barefoot with a lady of 177cm / 5ft9.75 and he be 2cm shorter. Thanks to Risingforce's pics (see Depps page and 8/Dec/08). That lady is Charlize Theron, a former model. Now, female models are more accurate listings than their male co-stars, these women rarely 'fudge' height if they're over that 5ft7 minimum requirement to become a model.
Complex said on 17/Dec/08
Depp gets listed as low as 5'7 and as high as 5'9. Assuming Depp is 5'9 then Bloom would be max 5'10. I think Bloom is 5'9.5 or 5'9.75 but not a full 5'10 in the evening!!
jim12 said on 16/Dec/08

It is the case _almost_ everywhere here, Moke. Most leading male actors are under-listed, but pretty much all of the "tallish" female actresses like Brooke Shields are over-listed. Charlie Sheen for example is listed as 5-9 here yet he is about the same height as Brooke, who's listed as 5'11:

Right miser. You`re so right. But it`s the case everywhere here on celebheights. Always the minimum of height and often less than that.

Lol, it's pretty hilarious how some folks are downgrading everybody by association... first you assume depp is 5-9... then since bloom does not look a whole lot taller he's about 5-10. i think you're taking an inch off both. they are about 5-10 and 5-11 respectively.
Vibram said on 13/Dec/08
Check this out: Click Here Next to 5ft9 Depp he looks no taller. Most experts on here calculate Depp to be between 174cm-176cm (5ft8.75 - 5ft9.5), so lets say 175cm / 5ft9 flat for Depp. From that picture alone Bloom is tops 177cm / 5ft9.75 and looks more 176cm.

Click Here = Depp and Bloom again yet Bloom dominates, indicating lifts or cowboy boots and/or Depp in flats, or floor abnormalities.

Click Here Bloom and Depp again with 5ft7.5 Jerry Bruckheimer on the left. There is about 2" max Between Jerry and Bloom indicating Bloom is struggling to be 5ft10 and more of a strong 5ft9 guy. 5ft10.75 / 179cm is way too generous = downgrade him from this evidence! What else do you need?

No way he's 6'0 or 5'11, 5'10.5 maybe, 5'9.75-5'10 more likely, in lifts who knows...

I know he's tall. He is a couple of inches taller than mirranda kerr who is reportedly 5 foot 9 with heels on. That would make him at least 6 foot. I would say 5 foot 11.

Your early afternoon height is more accurate than your morning height, based on what you have told us I would guess you are about 5

GF said on 20/Nov/08
I am exactly 5'10" morning height (almost 5'9" at night) and Orlando Bloom was AT LEAST 1/2 inch taller than me when I filmed with him on Pirates 3. 5'10.5" is about right. Maybe 5'10.75"

179.5cm is probably dead-on.

miser said on 19/Nov/08
"He is 176 to 177cm which is 5ft9.5 > 5ft9.75. No more, no less. It's easy to round off that to 5ft10 (178), then his insert/lift (1.5cm) and sometimes big hair give the impression of around 179cm.

I have sussed Depp at 174cm (175max) and Bloom looks only 2cm taller... thats 1 inch."

They really are about 2cm apart, but it is probably Depp that is 177cm, Orlando is 179cm or 180cm.
Kelsey said on 14/Nov/08

Complex, someone did linked a video where a guy measures Bloom and clearly states 179.5cm, unfortunately none of us are completely sure what measuring instrument or device was used. But I believe it
Complex said on 28/Oct/08
Well mee if that's true, then show us the video and i'll believe...

You can't say I downgrade every celeb by an inch, that's not true, some I downgrade more, lol, haha! Nah, I dont downgrade everybody, mee seems to me you upgrade everyone.

We have to keep in mind that celebs are naturally gonna be downgraded, not just because they wre lifts but because ppl claim their max height, so if they're ever caught looking shorter then they'll be more likely to get downgraded.

They have a pic down a little wys of a guy (5'9.5) perfectly even with Bloom. Besides have we forgotten he played a hobbit, lol! 5'10 MAX but he never looks that!
mee said on 22/Oct/08
Complex is trying to downgrade every celebrity for one inch. There is clear video where he has been measured for Waxword and man who is measuring him said :"179,5cm".

I heard on tv that hes 5'11 though to me 5'10 sounds more accurate.

You can tell mirander kerr isn't 5'9 because her body is so small, thats why she never made it as a big model in europe she's probably 5'7 - 5'8 and told to lie by her agency.

on kingdom of heaven he did give a 5'10 look next to 6'3 actors(whos names i have forgotten sorry. one was from starwars the other was baldish)

Miranda is a good 5'7 1/2-5'8. She's not as tall as they make her out to be saying she's 5'9. I love the VS angels but they usually always lie about their height making them taller or shorter if they're too tall.
Alessandra Ambrosio: 5'8 (according to VS: 5'10)

Authority said on 5/Jul/08
Aratirion, that pic is not very good given the fact that Orlando is closer to the Camera and has an obvious shoe heel advantage to the flats Depp is wearing. His stance is a little awkward which could suggest a lift as well. I think Orlando and Depp are the same height as they look the same in the films. Also, the Camera angle is down low as all three guys are looking down in this photo. I would say they're both taller than Jerry Bruckheimer though who looks 5' 7" here.

See this photo here for comparison of Depp, Orlando, Chow.

Also note Geoffrey Rush looks almost the same as Chow but is quoted as an inch shorter here. There are also other pics on here and elsewhere that show Chow and Geoffrey together, hard to tell if there's any height difference...
matt said on 2/Jun/08
miranda kerr isn't quite 5'7. She appeared once on Kerri Anne, which is a morning show in australia and she quoted that she wasn't quite 5'7 after being asked whether it was intimidating modelling next to such tall women. Besides Bloom always wears thick heels next to her. And although it cant be completely proven its hard not to argue that heels specifically are worn for a reason.
Aratirion said on 24/May/08
Oh, about 5'9? What is Depp then? As tall as Glenn? Doesn't appear to be as tall as Glenn if you look at the two pictures on the Johnny Depp page. So 5'9 is minimum for Depp. Which makes Bloom at least 5'10. Orlando Bloom is no way shorter than 1.78cm. Unless he got lifts in his socks, lol ...

What about that: Click Here Does he look close to 5'9?
Authority said on 23/May/08
I agree with rinky below, he's about 5'9", not "close to 6ft." He's clearly 2" shorter than Chow Yun Fat who is 5'11" as Chow is the same height as Sean William Scott in Bulletproof Monk. (See pic below)
sam said on 10/May/08
strange, i always thought he was small, but looking more closely here, he's actually a little tall!
Aratirion said on 30/Apr/08
Hmm, true, but are you sure there is no pavement-difference on the girls pics? I can't really tell, but it wouldn't be the first time that a model is officially taller than in reality. (Kate Moss' official height is sometimes 5'8)
But if she's 1.73/74, Bloom is probably about 1.78/79 what I always thought. More 1.79 if you ask me. Anyway, another proof, thanks.
Leung said on 28/Apr/08
I'm not sure because there are only photos of Miranda posing with Megan. I originally thought that Miranda Kerr was a legit 5'9" (175cm) but now I'm convinced that she's less than that.

It's more tricky making a comparison between Miranda and Orlando because of the high heel factor but I think Miranda Kerr is 173cm and Orlando Bloom 178cm.

Aratirion said on 28/Apr/08
And what was the difference between Bloom and the girls like? Gale must be within his height-range (+- 1,2 cm). With a bit taller heel she must have been taller than Bloom if he ain't 5`11.
Leung said on 27/Apr/08
Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr attended Randwick Horse Races on the weekend for their first public outing as a couple. Miranda Kerr is officially 5
Aratirion said on 26/Apr/08
Yeah, she's probably 5'8 in that heels and he is 5'10.5 (I think I know what pics you mean) in shoes that give 1cm at the most. Always the same estimate. 1.78/79 for Bloom.
Aratirion said on 12/Apr/08
He looks about 5'10 here if you ask me: Click Here
Orlando's wearing bigger heels but Kate seems to have a little pavement advantage so you can't really tell the exact difference. If she's 5'5, Orlando seems to be about 5 inches taller (with heel + and pavement -)
Aratirion said on 11/Apr/08

Rob , if he was measured at 179.5cm , that would make him 5'10.75 right ???
anonymous said on 26/Feb/08
Leung that will be the key to knowing Bloom's height range. I found a photo that was taken from a distance. As you can see Bloom is about to step down to the next step but it doesn't appear that it slouches his height. Kerr is walking (knees are bent) and looking down. They pretty much look the same height or atleast in the same height range. They are both wearing boots but the problem is I can't see Kerr's heels. In the second photo he looks shorter. More photos and research is needed. I still somewhat doubt that he is taller than 5'9-5'10". If you google web "Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr photos" you can find an image of them. If you google image "Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr" you can find another image.

Anonymous said on 23/Feb/08
I agree with everything you said Aratirion but I believe Depp is in the 5'8 - 5'9" range and not the 5'9"-5'10" range. In other words I would say Depp is not smaller than Humphrey Bogart and not taller than Marlon Brando. I believe Orlando Bloom is in the 5'9"-5'10" range and not the 5'10"-5'11" range. A camera can create the illusion that you look heavy or thin and tall and short.
GSP said on 22/Feb/08
Yeah Bloom strikes me as a guy who is over 5'10 out of bed and under 5'10 at night ..so yeah 5'10 suits him well even though he might dip under it at night.
Aratirion said on 22/Feb/08
@Anonymus; Yeah, 5'10.5 might be a little too much for an evening height but in the morning Bloom is no shorter than that; Compare, as LittleLee said, him and Liam Neeson; There ain't that much difference ... (4 to 5 inches)
LittleLee said on 21/Feb/08
I saw a pic of bloom and Liam neeson together. There was a four inch gap and Neeson is 6'4" inch. Defo no smaller than that so obviously bloom is 6 foot tall
Anonymous said on 20/Feb/08
Aratirion, that photo proves nothing. How do we know Jerry is 5'8". How do we know Bloom and Jerry aren't wearing lifts. There is no way Bloom is 5'10.5" in the evening. Why does someone 5'6" say Blooom is small. It makes no sense. "Hollywood" is what this person told me in simple terms. Hollywood.

He can seem very tall too; not only in the 5'9 region ...
Shoe advantage, basement advantage, ..., indeed but nevertheless he's looking about 6ft there: Click Here
Aratirion said on 18/Jan/08
Orlando slouches all the time, whereas you can hardly see Pitt doing that. Excluding the massive lifts isn't the only thing. You have to be careful with the angle in those pictures. Pitt is the same height as Orlando Bloom, maybe 1cm difference.
Cincy said on 17/Jan/08
Does that mean that Brad Pitt only has a 1,252 cm advantage on Bloom, because on the pics we saw from Troy's release, Pitt looks much more taller, even if you exclude the lifts.
Aratirion said on 14/Jan/08
Yeah, never thought about that, but maybe 1,79.5 was what the figure had to be about (hair included); So maybe just under 1.79 in the morning (I guess it was morning height), which would explain why he can look 5'10 in the evening.
GSP said on 13/Jan/08
Editor Rob,

It looked like some kind of laser measurement tool. Thats the impression I got. So it would have included the hair but he had it slicked back so it was maybe 1/2 inch. I wondered if it included that white circle elevation though. Also it didnt seem like he was straining posture or anything.

He didnt look short barefoot either so I could definatly buy 179 for Bloom. Would have been better if they used a stadiometer though.
dmeyer said on 13/Jan/08
rob did you upgreat him because of mesurment ,because i got mesured 183 cm barefeet because i had a lidl hair he has mush more hair

[Editor Rob: I still not sure how he actually got measured, the clip just shows a guy holding a face reference. But I did give him 179cm.]
GSP said on 12/Jan/08
Just saw the wax work clip. So assuming that those laser things are accurate and also assuming it didnt somehow include the 1-1.5 inch white circle he was standing on than it seems fairly conclusive he is indeed 179.5.

We should get more of these clips lol.
horacle said on 12/Jan/08
@Leungs pics; in many pics he looks 5'9 maybe he is liftless and the others have lift on but i think 5'10 is a good estimation but no more. Don't forget he sometimes wear lift recently.

I say he could be 5'11. I like to dream. ;D
Aratirion said on 4/Jan/08
@Leungs pics; most of them fit pretty well to a 1.79 Bloom in my opinion. The difference to Norton is normal, Hartnett has about 10,11,12 cm on Bloom, and the ones with Dom. Monaghan aren't good because Monaghan is standing on a higher level; but what makes me really wondering are the ones with Kevin Spacey and Ian McKellen. Spacey is obviously taller although he should be about 2cm smaller, and McKellen is quite a lot taller ...
the problem is, we don't know footwear and these are just some examples for a 5'9.5/5'10 Bloom. I guess he is 5'10.5 in the morning and 5'10 in the evening.
bam said on 4/Jan/08
dmeyers got bloom right on the money
"i think bloom is 5'10.75 morning and 5'10 to 5'10.25 night ,he seemed shorter than me in person and he had funny boots"

That would explain his 5'10.66 listing, and his lows of 5'10 flat in pics. His posture is relaxed, no doubt about it.

I'm not saying that Bloom is short because he isn't, I just don't see him being close to 5'11". When he is next to legit 5'11" people there is nearly always about an inch difference, sometimes more.
A 179cm person with a slender frame should often give the illusion of being close to 6' but Bloom never does. He's 5'10" flat, and maybe 5'11" when you include an inch of puffy hairstyle.

The following photos are some shockers, in my opinion a legit 179cm will not look this short. I think Bloom is 5

If Brad Pitt is 5'11" there is no way Bloom is even close to 5'10.5". That video of the wax place isn't necessarily proof that Bloom is close to 5'11". I know someone who worked on the Elizabeth soundtrack and they said Bloom didn't look very tall. I believe Bloom is a maximum of 5'9.5", and Depp is a max of 5'8.25". If he looks 6ft it is because he is wearing lifts.



an anonymous commenter.... I was within 5 feet of Orlando Bloom when he was promoting the movie "Elizabethtown" in my home town of Louisville, Kentucky. He ain't no 179. I'm 5' 9" barefoot and he was noticably shorter than me. I'll give him 5' 8". My sister swears he looked more 5' 7"ish. This is how a 5' 10" Pitt can tower over Bloom by a few inches in some pics...especially with lifts. Bloom is just another classic example of the "2 inch rule" for shortish actors. He's about 5' 8", so claims 5' 10" and is lean enough to look it in pictures. Just as a lean 5' 10" Pitt looks 6 feet in pics and 6' 1' with the full lift package.

Sure is the angle bad in the picture with Sean Bean, but there is definitely a difference of about half an inch (and Bean is given 5'10.5 here) which would make Bloom 5'10. But we don't know the shoes and judging someones height just because of one picture doesn't work, indeed. I just wanted to show that Bloom can appear 5'10 without slouching. But, as Glenn said, there are numerous pictures where he seems 6feet ... it's strange.
But in the gettyimages pic the angle is in favour of no one. It would be pretty good for judging if they were all standing there barefoot and without slouching. And again it's strange, because Blooms eye level is just under Rushs (who is slouching heavily), but the top of Blooms head is about an inch under his. I guess the difference between Geoffreys eye-level and the top of his head is more than the usual 4,5 inch.
Valeri said on 31/Dec/07
aratirion. You obviously dont know what angles s do you. The picture with bloom is very much in beans favour and under the riht angle they are the same height pretty much.As for the bloom/rush pic,The difference there is less than 1 inch,which would make bloom a legit 5'10.5 at least next to rush.With a difference like that I'd think youd see it,but then sgain you cant judge angles too.sorry.
dmeyer said on 31/Dec/07
i think bloom is 5'10.75 morning and 5'10 to 5'10.25 night ,he seemed shorter than me in person and he had funny boots
glenn said on 31/Dec/07
i saw bloom look 6ft the first time.5-11 the second time.and 5-10.25 the 3rd.thats why i said 5-11.cause the shorter figure was bad posture.
Aratirion said on 31/Dec/07
But if Bloom trully is 1.79 then Geoffrey Rush gotta be over 6 feet easily. Look at that picture again: Click Here If Geoffrey Rush is the 5'11.5 he claims himself (!) then Orlando Bloom would be 5'10 the most.
I still can't really believe Bloom being 5'11. There are numerous pictures where he looks 5'10 the most. (f.e.: Click Here with 5'11(?) Sean Bean; Orlando isn't even slouching here).
Valeri said on 30/Dec/07
oh please anon1,dont be pathetic,what? he should get bald for the measurment? rip his hair out? his hair was neatly all tied up and probably added a few mm if that(1cm-10mm) so cut the bull with the hair,as for the platau,I'm pretty sure they didn't inculde that,just logic mates.BUT come ot think of it are you guys blind? when the speech he's just under 5'11 ...179.5cm..etc was going it wasn't the guy measuring his head speaking,that guys mouth didn't move even,so OBVIOUSLY there's proof that the video didn't match the audio at that point. So there's even PROOF that bloom is that height and you can't downgrade him,since proof is on his side.that platau was about an inch and bloom ain't 5'9.5,that would make dicaprio same height and he sure ain't that. So I trust Glenn when he says 5'11 for bloom,since he was only off by less than a cm(0.84cm),which makes Glenn a fantastic height judger indeed,which I didn't have any doubts about though. The question though is either it was morning or daytime.Surely not evening ofcourse,for obvious reasons. I'm thinking morning though,since he doesn't look 1.5inches taller than depp.More like an inch.So Depp is probably around 5'9.5 and 5'9 during most of the daytime.As for Pitt,I think I pretty much proved with a great photo,that Pitt aint taller than bloom,with the troy pose picture.where bloom is in sandals and pitt in his BOOTS,which are seen,both sandals and boots.So Pit is indeed 179cm not more considering Bloom is easily Pitts height in reality and he doesnt wear lifts or stretch his spine to its limit.
Aratirion said on 30/Dec/07
@Cincy; The clip is strange, yeah ... But Bloom can easily be 3 to 4 cm taller than Depp, which would make him 1.75/76 and this is most suitable for him.
Gago said on 28/Dec/07
This is little high, he never looks much taller than Depp, unless Johnny gets ground support, Orlando is 178 cm or 5'10.
Anonymous said on 28/Dec/07
bloom quoted on lotr fellowship of the ring extended dvd commentary that he was 3
inches shorter than john rhys davis. It is quoted right at the end of disc 1. that would put bloom around 5'9.5

[Editor Rob: davis has in early 60's lost at least 2 inches in height.]
Danius said on 28/Dec/07
Confused. That measurement could have been in the early morning..so it could've been his morning height which means he could not be a full 5'10.75
anon1 said on 23/Dec/07
He's also standing on a small plateau for the measuring, plus the hair. So it is still doubtful, why measure like that instead of standing with your back against the wall...hmm
Cincy said on 20/Dec/07
If you upgrade Bloom, then you must consider to add 0,25 inch to Johnny Depp,if not, it would mean Bloom has 1,5 inch on Depp which seems a bit exagerated to me.
bam said on 20/Dec/07
wow, the tassaud clip is awesome. If only they did that for pitt.
Original said on 17/Dec/07
For me he look 5'10.5".
dmeyer said on 17/Dec/07
you can even give him 5'10.75 since it is 179.705 and 5'10.5 is 179.1
Aratirion said on 17/Dec/07
Ok, i think that's quite suitable for Bloom. For the moment you should leave him at 1.79 ...
Cincy said on 16/Dec/07
In that case, why do the editor keeps him at 5'10.25?

[Editor Rob: I'm going to put him to 10.5]
Leung said on 16/Dec/07
I still believe that Bloom is 5
Aratirion said on 16/Dec/07
Yeah I trust you brother_h that he seemed like that, because he always seems so, and I think we all got fooled, but Molli just gave us the evidence that he is 5'11. I think every further discussion is not necessary. 1,79.5 cm is his exact height
brother_h said on 15/Dec/07
Ive seen this guy up close, no way is he near 5'11. he's atleast 5'9. i was only young but i remember that i was 5'8 and trust me he looked dwarfed next to all the LOTR actors and extras. the aragorn guy viggo something or other, he's like 5'9.
new zealanders are taller than US by an inch. when your 5'10 in US and 5'10 in NZ the NZ guy will be taller by an inch.
Molli said on 15/Dec/07
Bonus featurette from the Pirates 3 dvd shows him being measured barefoot by the Madame Tussauds team for his waxwork model and his height is given as 179.5.

Realheight 88 said on 8/Dec/07
I agree with Ayman.
Aratirion said on 15/Nov/07
Yeah, an inch taller than Depp. If Depp is smaller than 5'10 (what is very likely; more 5'9 to 1.76 for JD) than Bloom is about 1.78,79. Always the same estimates, no matter who we compare OB with.
I think Depp and Bloom are listed here very accurately.
AshnarLynx said on 14/Nov/07
He looks a solid 5'11 to me in Pirates. Just an inch taller than Depp.
Valeri said on 5/Nov/07
aratirion.Thats kind of a bit stupid question. Ofcourse dmeyer means an inch under him with the shoes on. Who in the world says an inch under,when hes barefoot and yore i nshoes. switch on the brain. ;) no offense though. Bloom seems to be mor confident than before. I think hes not trying ot look 6feet anymore as last year with dicaprio,but rather jsut going with the 5'10 flow.,which is cool. 5'10-6ft nice height
? said on 2/Nov/07
Its really hard to see him barefoot. Except on the beach. no photoshoots or nothing!
Aratirion said on 27/Oct/07
Oh, thanks Brah!
@dmeyer: So, he looked an inch smaller than you with his shoes or is your estimate that he gotta be an inch smaller without them? What shoes did you wear?
Brah said on 26/Oct/07
dmeyer is 181 cm I recall, a little over 5'11"
Aratirion said on 20/Oct/07
And your exact hight is what?
dmeyer said on 19/Oct/07
he looked an in smaller than me in person and he had weird shoes very high cut with a 1.3 in heel
Aratirion said on 19/Oct/07
Could also very possibly be. I mean, if they gave him 5.9'5 back then, when he wasn't that popular, it sounds more believable than any statement now; 5'10 is probably most accurate now, although he can look 5'11 or even 6ft, so 1.76/5'9.5 must be a little to less nowadays.
Anonymous said on 19/Oct/07
Ive looked at alot of these pics with orlando from where he looks 5'9 to almost 6' and here is my guess; It was stated that he was 5'9.5 in US Weekend magazine and the National Post which both are pretty old articles so he probably was 5'9.5 when that was written and possibly grew half an inch in his early to mid 20s...Which would put him at 5'10. But I have a friend who is 5'11.25 and im about 5'10 and ive worn lifts(which put me at 5'11.5) with him and looked taller than he was when he was wearing shoes...so shoes and pictures can be decieving. Glenn im guessing your 5'8 but look around 5'7 to me so possibly when you saw him you were looking up at him so he looked taller and with those lifts around 6'. My guess is he was at 5'9.5 then possibly had a late growth spurt to 5'10.
glenn said on 28/Sep/07
sure.very possible cincy.
Cincy said on 27/Sep/07
Glenn, could Bloom had put on Brad Pitt's type of lifts when you saw him at about 6 ft?
Aratirion said on 27/Sep/07
No, I don't think so. He wouldn't claim to be smaller than he actually is. 1,79 to 1,80 sounds pretty accurate.
Daniel said on 26/Sep/07
Could be even 5'11.5'' (1.82m)
Aratirion said on 25/Sep/07
Altogether I think Bloom is 1,79m. I know I didn't say this when I first visited the site, but the longer I think about it the more I'm sure. He can look 5'10 sometimes but also 6ft in some occasions so 5'10.5 sounds pretty accurate. That would make Johnny Depp about 1,76. This is the most believable estimation in my opinion. He can look 5'10 easily as well as 5'9 most of the time, or 5'11 with lifts or boots. Rarely 5'8.
This matches up perfectly, if you ask me.
glenn said on 24/Sep/07
i agree 5-10.25 is the lowest is saw orlando.then 6ft.
Aratirion said on 24/Sep/07
I think we agree, that Johnny Depp can't be under 5'9. About 5'9 - 5'10 is accurate. Orlando Bloom is at least an inch taller. And Orlando Bloom is as tall as Brad Pitt. Blooms posture makes you think he's 6ft as Glenn said. Just look at these pictures: Click Here
I'm nearly 5'9 and I just couldn't believe he's about my height. So I'd say 5'10 at the very least. 5'10.25 sounds very accurate, but as I said, I wouldn't wonder if he was 5'11. A good friend of mine is 5'11 and to be honest, he looks shorter than Bloom. Another friend is 6ft. His posture reminds me exactly on Blooms.
Valeri said on 23/Sep/07
what makes you think he cant be under aratirion even if he claimed it himself? you havent met him,so really.
Realheight 88 said on 22/Sep/07
He is a weak 5-10.He is shorter than brad pitt who's 5-10.5,5-11.
Aratirion said on 20/Sep/07
No, no way he's under 5'10. Impossible. I mean, I couldn't believe it, even if it would come out of his mouth. 5'10 at the very least. I think 5'10.25 is very accurate but if he was 5'11 I wouldn't be surprised. But anything under 5'10 is ridiculous, imo.
dmeyer said on 19/Sep/07
in person looked 5'10.25 in weird shoes but there is an high probability he is 5'10 flat and maybe under it
Daniel said on 18/Sep/07
I totally agree with Aaron and Anonymous about the perception people has for their own height, especially males. I am only 1.68m (5'6'') most of the day and always say that as my height when asked for. Nevertheless, most of my friends and working fellows (taller or shorter) tell me that I'm taller than that, putting me at 1.70m (5'7'') minumum, so they can add the same for themselves. I find it so stupid, and really pisses me off. Whether they accept it or not, most men have a height complex, and they deal with it lying and upgrading their own heights, but, who do they fool after that? Just themselves, for sure! Truth is the most comfortable place you can lean on, never forget this!
Leung said on 18/Sep/07
Badboy has got a good point.
Pitt’s height does fluctuate so it’s best to ignore him and just concentrate on Bana and Bloom.

Bana towers Bloom, the difference is huge. A 5’11” person should not get dominated like that. I don’t think Bloom is not as low as 5’8”-5’9”. I think he is 5’10” flat.

Aratirion explained in his post about Bloom consistently being shorter than 5’11” guys such as McKellen and Mortensen.
