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!

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.
Aratirion said on 18/Sep/07
Yeah, because Bana's wearing dress shoes, and is about 3-4 inches taller than Pitt barefoot. If Pitt gets one inch on Bana due to his enormous shoes he can still look 2-3 inches shorter. (robs heel height truth article ;) )
Bloom's slouching most of the time and his shoes don't seem to have a sole at all. If Bloom's 5'11 here (with shoes), Pitt is maybe 6.1 in his lifts and Bana 6'3+ in normal dress shoes.
bad boy said on 18/Sep/07
but there are some 20 more pics, you can't say the angle is improper in all the pics.
(granted pitt is wearing lifts, but he still looks about 2.5-3 inches shorter than 6'2 bana)
glenn said on 18/Sep/07
brad is in lifts.orlando isnt.and is in a bad angle.
said on 17/Sep/07
Rob, rob, rob, if brad pitt is a legit 5'11, then orlando HAS to be 5'8-5'9
check this pic:
bloom is a good 2 inches(or 2.5 inches) shorter than pitt(whos is shorter than 6'2 bana)
bloom IS NO WAY 5'10.25
(btw brad is leaning a bit)
Aratirion said on 12/Sep/07
Yeah, he can look 5'11 or even 6 ft. His posture is strange. But if McKellen and Mortensen are really 5'11 (what would you say glenn?) then Bloom is no more than 5'10. I said it so often. He's smaller than those two guys on every suitable picture. This can't be cam angle, slouching, ... all the time. I would guess 178cm for Bloom, 180cm for Viggo and 182 for McKellen.
Leung said on 5/Sep/07
Glenn, I’m really surprised that you have seen him as high as 6’.
I don’t see him being over 5’10”.
glenn said on 22/Aug/07
i saw him as high as 6ft.
dmeyer said on 22/Aug/07
seemed 5'10.25 when i met hin he had weird shoes thaugh
glenn said on 21/Aug/07
bloom is between 5-10.25 to 5-11.
Helen B said on 21/Aug/07
He's taller than 5 9. I've stood near him.
Aratirion said on 16/Aug/07
Ok, I gotta correct my estimate. The picture gives a wrong impression of Bloom. The Lord of the Rings pics are a better source. Comparing the Hobbits or Liv Tyler with Bloom, I'm sure 5'9 must be too short for him. But looking at images where he's standing next to Viggo Mortensen or Ian McKellen (considering "his trick"), I'm also rather sure that 5'11 is a little too much. So about 5'10 gotta be a good guess. (what supports my Johny Depp estimate of 5'9)
Anna said on 15/Aug/07
What are you talking about brother_h?
Aratirion said on 14/Aug/07
Hmm, not easy, but I think Bloom's standing as straight as Dom. Monaghan and Billy Boyd. But Bean is no good analogy as he's stretching.
He is really a hard candidate. In the booklet of the Kingdom of Heavens DC, there is a picture with Ridley Scott and Eva Green, where Orlando's looking like 6 feet. Maybe I'll find it, then I'll show you the pic.
horacle said on 9/Aug/07
I don't think he's wearing lift on that pic, he looks 5'9 but he slouchs. If he was straight he would look 5'9.5 or 5'10 (his height).
said on 30/Jul/07
On this picture, Bloom doesn't really look taller than 5'9. He's standing besides Boyd (5'6), Monaghan (listed at 5'7), and Sean Bean (5'10.5); And, he's wearing lifts:
What do you say?
Brad said on 10/Jul/07
I met Gerald Reyes who played Tearlach in POTC 1 & 2 and I'm 5'9" in pirate boots and he said I was a little taller than Johnny Depp in costume.
brother_h said on 8/Jul/07
1cm is not noticable. an orlando bloom is 5'10? thort he was 5'9. coz he isnt as tall as karl urban(6'1) on lord of the rings.
average height sumtyms differs for races or h/e u put it. if americans r averagly 5'10 good fer u guys.
nz ppl nowadays r 6'4-6'6.
maori 5'6-6'0(mainly 6'5-6'7)
blacks (anywhere but places where they really came frm)5'9
pakehas(nz whites) 5'7-5'11
samoans 6'0-6'3(mainly 6'3 but alot of young samoans are around 6'5)
and thts all i kno =] so far
Aaron said on 7/Jul/07
yeah anonymous, I know what you mean. It pisses me off so much when one of my good friends claims to be 5'10.5 too when I know I have a good inch, inch and a half on him. People need to stop lying cause it throws off everyone else's perception of height cause people start pulling (and I could do this too), "Oh, he said he's 5'10, so that means I gotta be 6'0 at least cause I know I have two inches on him". When in reality, their height is less. We need to call liars out y'all.
Anonymous said on 6/Jul/07
I think you're right Aaron. I'm the same height as you and I usually just say 5'10.75 as my height. Whenever I say that, people always say, c'mon, you're taller than that. I used to think I was 6' just cuz that's what most friends my height said they were. And I do agree with you that the average height is most likely inflated if anything. 5'10 seems awfully high for average height. I look around and am taller than most guys at 5'10.5-5'10.75 (most of the day).
Aaron said on 5/Jul/07
okay, but you can't say that with a whole lot of certainty MD. There will always be error in sampling. Anyone who has taken even a basic statistics class will tell you that. We're questioning the means of how they obtain their data. Obviously, if they're just polling people's heights by word of mouth, people will lie, that's all I was saying. My friends all lie about their height. Maybe lie is the wrong word. I feel that people in general think they're about half an inch to an inch taller than they really are. And I was talking about average height for all males (after puberty of course) not just a specific age range. I just find it weird that at 5'10.5" people call me tall if 5'10" were the average--not much of a difference there. I do have good posture but I wear normal footwear. I still think average height for adult males in the US is 5'9"-5'9.5"--I'm talking barefoot in the afternoon. The only way to make an argument for that is to actually measure people, not go by what they say. My guess is that data for these so called averages comes from what people put down on their driver's liscenses, hence why I think that average is inflated by an inch or a little bit less--PEOPLE LIE! MD, if you have some sort of convincing data, I would definitely shut up really fast. I just have to know that the data was obtain by barefoot measurements, not word of mouth. That's all I was saying. Thanks!
MD said on 4/Jul/07
Aaron, the average height of adult white and black American males (20-39 years of age) is, indeed, exactly 5'10" whether you want to believe it or not. When you mix in hispanic males of the same age group, it falls to 5'9.4".
17,181 said on 4/Jul/07
true Aaron.Even at 5'11.25 I feel tempted to round up to 5'11.5,though I don't.
Aaron said on 3/Jul/07
I don't think average is anywhere near 5'10.15" in the US. I'm 5'10.5" most of the day(5'11.25 out of bed and 5'10.25 after a long day of work) and I feel pretty confident about my height. I think average height is more toward 5'9 flat. If anyone says 5'10" I think that number is inflated. Although, it's interesting because a lot of my friends who are smaller than me claim 5'10, 5'11, and 6' and there heights are 5'9.25", 5'9" and a weak 5'11 respectively to those last heights. It seems that everyone likes to add on an inch or two. I'm sure at 5'10.5" with my posture that I could get away with claiming 5'11" pretty easy. Bottom line, I still think US true barefoot height uninflated average is somewhere between 5'9 and 5'9.5". Height is so obscurred by all these people claiming to be taller than they really are.
Daman said on 3/Jul/07
To answer Anonymous' question the average male in America is only five feet eight and one half inch tall, I was always wondering why I was so much taller than so many guys and I'm, although still growing, five ten, which everyone says is the average. Ha! Shortsupport.com for evidence.
Jack said on 15/Jun/07
i say 179cm, he really does look 5'11 .. and if not.. i have a lot of friends that are 178cm and he is taller than them for sure..
and yes.. 1cm is noticable
said on 14/Jun/07
Hey dmeyer, I've addressed this before, but have never really gotten a good answer, maybe you can help....or Rob maybe you can help. When they throw out these height averages what are they using as data? I mean, are they going by Dr. office visits, driver's licenses or maybe a survey? My point is that all are very flawed. The last couple times I've been to the doctor, they've actually measured me in my shoes and if we're going by driver's license or what people write down, then I think those height averages are inflated. I'm 5'11-1/8 out of bed and 5'10-3/8 at bed time. Maybe 5'10-1/4 after a long day on my feet. That's pretty average height, but I seem taller than most. I'd be surprised to see the barefoot height of american males much more than 5'9.
[Editor Rob: I trust the University research studies that actually measure people barefoot or the data from some Uk hospital research which again is barefoot. The only thing is time of day, most of them obviously won't be doing early morning measurements.
A number of studies though do use self reported, which might be a little inflated.]
said on 12/Jun/07Click Here
slighty shorter than parky, if you actually look at the height differnce, as he is much slimmer than parky from a distance he appears taller.
[Editor Rob: too much movement, too hard to say much there.
Parky used to take still shot promos with guests, shame you can't see them nowadays.]
dmeyer said on 11/Jun/07
he is average since average american white male is id 5'10.15 in 178.2 and he is 178.4 so 5'11 is just about 1 in taller than average so from 6 ft and up is tall but in that average they might count also morning mesurere so more 5'9.75 177 cm for me an 177 cm tall men is a normal men not short not tall
dmeyer said on 11/Jun/07
on the set he gave me an impression of 5'9.5 in converce then he seemed solid 5'10 in high cut dress shoes wish looked suspicious in pics he look 5'10 flat
Robert.R said on 11/Jun/07
Perhaps I got it wrong then Lapiz, although he never looked that tall to me in Troy.
Lapiz said on 10/Jun/07
I saw Parkingson too and I thought Bloom was the taller. Thinner than Parkinson which makes him look smaller, but not actually shorter.
Robert.R said on 10/Jun/07
He was on the Michael Parkinson show yesterday and if he is 5'10.25" then Michael Parkinson is 6ft because he was clearly taller than Bloom when they stood eye to eye. Yet Parkinson is listed on here as 5'10"!
glenn said on 9/Jun/07
only the people that meet him know.read that post.yes,very rude.and between 5-10.25 to 6ft in my encounters.
GON said on 9/Jun/07
anyone kidding me? he looks tall like at least 1.8m beside 5ft11 sir-Ian Mckellen..

5'10.25 but no over

With Johnny Depp who's given 5'9", here, and with Jerry Bruckheimer, again, who's given 5'8".
Orlando Bloom is not 5'10"
AHMET said on 3/Jun/07
I think Orlando is approximately 5'9. Orlando says that he is 6'0 but seems very improbable.
kate said on 28/May/07
i am 5'6 but the doctor said i am going to be 5'9 when i grow up taller then my sister she is going to be 5'8 or i could be 5'10
anonymous said on 27/May/07
he may wear lifts but he appeared to be just under 6 foot and very thin when i met him. on a side note he was a rude person

Johnny depp and Orlando Bloom both look in the 5'11" range in that pic if Chow Yun Fat is really 184cm.

You're right trueheight, but what about this one Click Here
or this one Click Here
(there are other pics on the page)
trueheight said on 24/May/07
Blackberry: that photo is titled. tilting the head a bit to compensate, Bloom looks about 1.5in shorter than 6ft Chow Yun Fat.
Surprisingly, Depp looks the same as Bloom and is wearing his beat up boots that I haven't seen him wear for like 8yrs
Leung said on 24/May/07
Looking at that picture I still have to go with 5’10” for Bloom. There are also photos showing Bloom looking 5’9”, but that can happen to 5’10” guys. My impression is that Bloom is a flat 5’10”.
Glenn, my only explanation for you seeing him close to 6’ would be his footwear when you encountered him.
said on 24/May/07
What do you think about this pic? Click Here
Depp is (according to this site)5-9.
glenn said on 20/May/07
ive seen orlando look between 5-10.25 to 6ft.and alec look as tall as 6-1.
Leung said on 20/May/07
Most 5’11” guys can usually get away with claiming 6 foot but Bloom looks not even close to 6’. Bloom looks 5’10” max
MD said on 17/May/07
He looked shorter, to me. Not by much, but he's always looked shorter than Jay, and he's been on the Tonight show quite a few times.
The Horse of FUNK said on 17/May/07
He also looked roughly the same height as Alec Baldwin. I think 5'10" is too low, but 5'11" is too high. 5'10.75" (just skimming 180cm) seems to be the best estimate I can think of.
Viper said on 17/May/07
He looked roughly the same height as Jay Leno on his show.
Dai said on 16/May/07
5ft10 max, perhaps 5'9.5'. Not close to 6ft as the quote suggests.
G-unit said on 10/May/07
yeah right, nearly 6ft my ass. He's 5'11 max.
Anonymous said on 30/Apr/07
I don't think it's that abused. Most celebs say that the one thing they always hear when they meet fans is "I thought you were taller". My wife met Will Smith, who's 6'2 or so and said that she thought he'd be taller. So, I figure, whether you're short or not it doesn't matter. I read that Morris Chestnut said that and he's 6'. George Clooney too and he's 5'10-5'11. It would probably get old whether you're short or not, and these two examples aren't short guys. I'd probably wear lifts too if I were a celeb and were constanly being scrutinized. Even John Wayne reportedly wore lifts and he was 6'4.
The Horse of FUNK said on 30/Apr/07
Wow, this lifts argument schtuff is becoming excessively used and abused.

hey guys i have met orlando and i will probably get a picture of him to put on here from the new pirates premiere. Anyway im 5'10 and had completely flat shoes on when i met him he has black dress shoes. anyway he was my height. Im not sure how much the average dress shoe has but take that off 5'10 and you have his height.

dmeyer said on 15/Apr/07
he was not far from my height 5'10.25 seems right
Anonymous said on 12/Apr/07
I would go with 5'9. His height claims just dont add up. Even with lifts, Carl Urban pretty much towers him.
said on 12/Apr/07
pitt has taught bloom tricks alright. Bloom has learned the brad pitt trick of gaining 4 inches, without a visible lift to look almost as tall as forest whittaker. Note that althought posture accounts for this disparity, its pretty hard to account for 4 inches (5'9 to almost 6'1). Click Here
Franco said on 12/Apr/07
he is about an inch taller than Eva Green with heels.
id say 5'10 flat
bam said on 11/Apr/07
To reiterate, an older post.
US Weekend magazine did mention::
"has dark hair and eyes and, at 5-foot-9 1/2, is shorter than the 6-foot-plus Elf he plays"
National Post - "And he's a rather tender-looking 5-feet-9"
orlando bloom is roughly 5'9 not less, probably not taller. This was reaffirmed by interviews by people who saw him face to face. During interviews, journalists do not guess heights, they ask. If wrong info about a person is published, then that is slander. Therefore bloom probably confessed to 5'9/5'9.5 TWICE. Also, according to 1mdb brad pitt's "best friend" is orlando bloom. if this holds a grain of truth, orlando bloom could easily learn to gain an inch or two from the lift master himself brad pitt(who can gain 2 inches invisibly),. He also does admittedly have the proportions of a six footer. Bottom line, he's 5'9.5 and wears minor heels/lifts to hit the 5'10.5 mark.
The Height Wizzard said on 6/Apr/07
He is probably just shy of 5' 9" without shoes, although he is has the proportions of a 6 footer.

Gawker sighting, Mar 29th, 2007 @ 10pm:
"Sat behind ORLANDO BLOOM at "Talk Radio." After the show, he, Naomi (Watts-5ft 4.5in)and Liev walked down 48th Street together and talked about going to Bond 46 for a drink. Orlando and Naomi are practically the same height!"
James Brown said on 22/Mar/07
If Kiera is 5'7" then Depp is 5'8" and bloom is 5'9".
That's almost exactly how it lines up in every photo of them together.
Plus can look taller but he's so scrawny and lanky plus isn't it easy for 5'9"s to look taller then they are?
dmeyer said on 20/Mar/07
i was alidl taller than bloom like 1 inch so me and leo are close
dmeyer said on 20/Mar/07
leo and him are close 2 to 3 cm max diferance i met bloom he is close to 179 or strong 178 no less 5'10.25 is 178.4 wish is alomost 179 leo is 181 182

he looked 5'9" next to liam neeson at some kingdom of heaven thing and he barely looked bigger than 5'5"ish eva green

We can't see they have the same lift. I think Pitt is more lifted than bloom.
bam said on 13/Mar/07
i would bet my head that someone here had a link to an article where the writer described bloom as 5'8.5 and another one that described him at 5'9.5
does anyone know?
horacle said on 13/Mar/07
No mike pitt looks 6'0.5 (i think he is 5'10.5 whithout shoes) because he wears LIFTS and bloom looks 5'9.5. Depp is 5'9 and bloom is a little taller than him at 5'9.5/5'10.
VIX said on 8/Mar/07
I watched The Graham Norton Show last week and Orlando Bloom was on the show and when I saw him next to Graham Norton (5ft 8in)he seems to be 5ft 10.25in and I don't think he was wearing lifts. So I think 5ft 10.25in seems accurate and right.
horacle said on 6/Mar/07
Eric Bana (6'2) is next to Brad Pitt who looks 6'0.5 in lifts and posture. Bloom looks 5'10 in this pic if he doesn't wear lift.

Oh also, what is the morning and evening height thing?? I dont understand it! When i met him it was about 4pm if that means anything?! lol.
And yes he is a terrible sloucher, i noticed that too.
He was nice enough when i met him, not overly chatty but friendly enough. Glenn, was he rude to you when you met him? I hate rude people!
Ella said on 2/Mar/07
Yeah they were just normal trainers, a bit scuffed looking! He looks to be around what he said, 5'11ish, maybe 5'10.5...i really dont think he can be any shorter than that. He seems to be taller than average...but not exceptionally so. I really think he's a solid 5'11!
horacle said on 1/Mar/07
I can't buy anything over 5'10.5 in the morning for this guy. Ella are you sure, his shoes were normals?
Ella said on 1/Mar/07
I met him a few months ago, and im exactly 5'8 in flats and he seemed almost 6 foot...he was wearing normal shoes so i'd put him at 5'11. At the MINIMUM 5'10.5.
Time for an 0.25 upgrade i think!! :)

Orlando is about 3 cm taller than Johnny Depp (5'9'') in Pirate of Caribbean 2 and he's about 2 cm. shorter than Brad Pitt, I think Orlando height's 5'10''.
Antron said on 13/Feb/07
I think he is closer to 176cm, but 5'10ish is accurate enough; as to that big-headed pygmies site, it is craptastic. The point is more to bash people than be accurate, 5'4" is clearly ridiculous. Imagine Seth Greene saying something like "at nearly 6 feet...."
horacle said on 9/Feb/07
Anything below 5'9 is impossible. Hes 5'10 in the morning.

i'm 5'7" and when i met him he was TALLER than me, i'm guessing hes about 5'8.5"
Anonymous said on 5/Feb/07
i met him during the filming of elizabethtown. i'm 5'9.5", and he was shorter than me. i'd guess 5'6"-7". Almost all celebrities are short, and the general rule of thumb is to subtract at least 2 inches from their given height. He's definitely not anywhere above 5'9" though. nonetheless, he's about the only guy i'd ever date who's shorter than me.
Anonymous said on 1/Feb/07
I think your real height is the height you are most often at. That's your evening height, I don't think taking an average is correct.
My 2 cents!
said on 25/Jan/07
He appears about average to me as in 5'9 possibly 5'10 (not 6ft). As he didnt seem that much bigger than Johnny Depp (5'9) and Keira Knightley (5'7) in Pirates of the Caribbean so I doubt he is 6ft. He probably does wear lifts in his shoes sometimes (maybe why he comes across as being 5'11-6ft sometimes).
But as this is a height website I just had to add this link, I mean its not that I believe it or anything, but where the hell did this site get the 5'4 claim from? Click Here
dmeyer said on 23/Jan/07
i think bloon is no shorter than 178 even at night
MOF said on 22/Jan/07
mike... Your only realistic way to calculate your height is to find your morning height and evening height and find the medium. Bloom may be 178cm in the morning and go down to 176cm in the evening, making him about 5'9.5".
horacle said on 22/Jan/07
yes i see more 5'9.5 in the day

He is a nice height and is about 5ft 10 to 5ft11 depending on what shoes he's wearing
tim said on 16/Dec/06
well im not quite sure whether he is 5'8 or 5'10 or inbetween but a thing that may help is that he weighs less than 70kgs or around 154pounds so that sort of weight isnt really what someone 5'11 should weigh otherwise wouldnt he look extremely skinny???
Kristine said on 7/Dec/06
I have met Orlando Bloom. I can't give an exact height but I am 5'10 and he was just a little taller then me. I didn't check out his shoes as everyone keeps stating but unless he wears giant lifts (which I seriously doutbt) he would be 5'10-5'11

Viggo is a solid 5'11". I think Orly wears a 1 in lift at times, subtle gain just to give him a little boost around taller actors.
horacle said on 3/Dec/06
His shoes are always suspicious. Orlando is 176 and Depp is 173-174.
Anonymous said on 30/Nov/06
I know someone who worked on a soundtrack for a movie O. Bloom was in. She met him at the premiere and said he isn't a big guy. In fact she said he doesn't look very tall. She is 5'6". From what I understand her saying... it's like a lot of celebrities are smaller in person because they don't give out their real heights, and you can't tell in films. If O. Bloom says he is 5'11" I'd bet in reality that is atleast 2 inches more than what he really is. So in Depps case he probably is a max of 5'8". I can't be certain of this but it does make sense to me.
dmeyer said on 21/Nov/06
i think is no less than 5'10 he looked a lidl shorter than me at 5'11 and his shoes were suspicious could be only 5'10 like 178 i was aleast 2 cm taller so maybe 5'10.25 but no more i agree with glenn no less than 5'10 but when you are 5'10 it is easy to look 5'11 espsialy in hollywood he might be 179 morning 178 night likr hanks 184 morning 183 night
Anonymous said on 14/Nov/06
I have a friend who was a musician on the soundtrack for a movie Bloom was in. She met him at the premiere and told me he didn't look very tall. She is near 5'6".

you're right, who's interestend in how tall a man is? as long as he looks like orlando ;)
(terrible shoes, by the way...)
orlando bloom said on 11/Nov/06
i dont care wat his height is all i care is how hot and sexy he is
realheight 88 said on 8/Nov/06
In my opinion orlando is no more than 5'9"(175cm) because he is 2 inches(maybe more) shorter than brad pitt who is 5'11" max.
Glenn said on 25/Oct/06
Mike,then how come he looked between 5-10.25 and 6ft on different times I saw him? I think he is either 5-10 or 5-11.he didnt have the body of a 5-9 guy.
horacle said on 24/Oct/06
right felix: Depp is definetely 173-174cm and Orlando looks 176cm
mike said on 18/Oct/06
bruckheimer is probably less than 5'8 because keira knightly is "supposedly 5'7" and she is taller or the same as both in that picture with 2-3 inch heels on.. and both those guys heels would be over 1.5' they are both struggling for 5'9.. thats why is funny that 5'10.5 is listed..
leonari said on 17/Oct/06
Please do so Padraig! Rob over estimates quite some guys by half an inch!
Glenn said on 16/Oct/06
Do we know for a fact Bruckheimer is 5-8? Padraig,you should change every listing at really bad estimates as temporary prank to give Rob a heart attack!
[Padraig: He is taller than that Dennis Hopper, so must be around there. I might accidentally remove a couple of 1/2 inches from a few listings, see if Rob notices :=)]
tim said on 16/Oct/06
depp is 173cm right.. now orlando has photos with bruck heimer and they are of the same height.. theres a full view and bloom appears to have the bigger boots. now this baffles me, it truely does because when he is with depp he is marginally taller like afew cm's could it be perhaps that the photos of depp and bloom are just with depp not having lifts and bloom having them, because evidence speaks for itself, i cant possibly see how bloom is taller than 5'8.5 honestly, on a side note lol has anyone noticed how the girls who post on this site always seem to be the cousin or girlfriend or friend of someone they are trying to make taller?? :)
Felix said on 16/Oct/06
Orlando Bloom is 176cm
Johnny Depp is 173cm
Kiera Knightley is 169cm
Jerry Buckheimer is 171-72cm
Could it be like this?
madison said on 16/Oct/06
i think that orlando is 179 and depp is my cousin and i met him once when was at a party.
dmeyer said on 16/Oct/06
179 is possible
dmeyer said on 16/Oct/06
178 179 range seems right for him since he is taller than depp
dmeyer said on 16/Oct/06
5'10.25 could be it
[Padraig: Maybe I could cheekily change it to annoy the Editor :=) ]
james said on 15/Oct/06
MD is exactly right.. everyone keeps ignoring a photo which cannot be explained bruckheimer is 5'8 and bloom is not taller... you guys can give all the photos you wont with bloom looking 5'10 but you cant fake being shorter.. the other photos most obviously are bloom with higher heeled shoes..
Glenn said on 15/Oct/06
Your forgetting that Pitt can look 6-1 in public.I met Orlando a few times.he is no smaller than 5-10,once giving me the illusion of 6ft.he has the body of a 5-11 guy when I see him.
said on 14/Oct/06
I'm not sure how anyone can explain the picture of him with 5'8" Jerry Bruckheimer, a very good and level photo, and say he's over 5'10":
1. Click Here
Bloom even has on thicker shoes/boots than Jerry.[Padraig: I'm not sure how anybody could explain these two pictures of Bloom and Arnold and claim he is under 5 feet 10 Click Here and Click Here? And arnold's hairstyle doesn't count.
Here is another shot of Bloom and Bruck
5 feet 10 to 5 feet 10.5, you are perfectly entitled to say he is closer to the first than last, I don't mind, you'd have to convince Rob :=)
5 feet 10 and 1/4 might be the best mark.
realheight88 said on 14/Oct/06
I strongly believe that orlando bloom is 5'9.5"[1.76m] in the morning without shoes on because he is exactly in the same height with johny depp[who is 5'9" max] or a little taller than him.Also he is obviously shorter[i think two inches for sure] in all pictures than brad pitt who is 5'11" barefoot.I know he looks taller than 5'9.5" because he wears high soled shoes a lot of time which make him to look around 5'11" but in fact he is 5'9.5"[176cm] BAREFOOT.To the editor rob and glenn: Orlando Bloom's height is 5 ft 10.5 in[179cm] WITH SHOES ON.Time to downgrade his height at 5'9.5"[176cm] because this is his REAL height[without shoes].
Glenn said on 13/Oct/06
Yeah,a hair over 5-10.
dmeyer said on 12/Oct/06
i agree with gleen 5'10.25 thats wath he looked i thaught he looked 5'11 but i thaught i was 6'0 at the time since i am about 5'11 5'11.7 only in the morning so he might be 5'11 in morning and 5'10 at night
dmeyer said on 12/Oct/06
when i met him he looked 1 inch smaller so 5'10 to 5'10.5 so possibly 5'10.25 like a week 179 but he was kinda tall over average his shoes looked suspicius he was in tennis shoes he looked average but i wasnt on the same floor then he had high cut dress shoes for a scene and looked near 5'11 like 179 he might be 5'10 and look 5'11 with a litel lift i think he is like 178 179 range
Julia said on 6/Oct/06
Orlando Bloom is probably the HOTTEST guy alive! Once you have your eyes on him, you just can;t take them off of that big hunk of sexxyness! (LOL!) We know eachother because My Brother is Erin Carter! hello?! I'm Jessica Carter! So I've met ALOT of celebrity's! But right now I'm dating Jesse Mcartney! (They second Cutest guy in the world!)
Autumn said on 3/Oct/06
I met him. He wasn't. I'm like 5'3 and I came past his shoulder. I'd say about 5'7. No more than 5'9.
Stil very very gorgeous though!
james said on 1/Oct/06
bloom looks the same height as depp in the pirate movies, with depp 5.9 but undoubtedly alittle less, you have to say most give their heights whilst in dress shoes, probably adding afew inches
Ed said on 29/Sep/06
I typed in Lord of the Rings cast images online to see what would come up, and a lot of pics showing group shots of the cast came up, candid yearbook style photos. Footwear is hard to decipher for many of these actors in the pics, but from what I could best see their height went in this order from tallest to shortest, Christopher Lee, John Rhys Davies,Ian Mckellan, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Bean, Orlando Bloom, Liv Tyler, Dominic Monaghan, Billy Boyd, Sean Astin, and lastly Elijah Wood(who looked really tiny, like 5ft3 to 5ft4). Bloom, interestingly enough in most pics looked smaller than Mortensen and Bean, by at least an inch, who both looked smaller than Mckellan by not much. My guess is Bloom is 5ft9.5, Mortensen and Bean are 5ft10.5, and Mckellan is close to 5ft11.
mike said on 28/Sep/06
that is why alot of the time you cannot base one celebs height off another celeb who's height you think is accurate because you can end up over estimating. also i think it has become an age where they are so self consious that there is rarely an occasion you catch them at their true height
Ed said on 26/Sep/06
Just watched Fellowship of the Ring the other night, and I know all kinds of trick photography was used during the making of that film, but in all the standard shots of Legolas(Bloom), Aragorn(Mortensen), and Gandalf(Mckellan), Bloom looks the tallest. I suppose it's possible Bloom wore lifts to be tall like the elves were suppose to, but it's odd that Mortensen can have a good inch on the 5ft10 listed Liv Tyler barefoot in their love scenes together, yet Tyler with most likely 3 inch heels can look 3inches taller than Bloom in the photo below. She would be about 6ft1 making Bloom 5ft10 with his boots on, 5ft8.5 to 5ft9 barefoot. These little confusing height abnormalities are what makes me suspicious of most celebs claimed heights.
james said on 21/Sep/06
i dont think that would ever happen because she would be 6'2 with heels on and i think he would never agree to take the photo as he would want to maintain his heart throb image, looking like a weiner next to a girl just wouldnt cut it in his mind i dont think
Jonathan said on 18/Sep/06
I would like to see a height comparison shot of Orlando Bloom and Uma Thurman
mike said on 14/Sep/06
i agree that bloom is 5'9, but depp says he is 5'10 hence he is 5'8, hes even given a 5'9 on this site which i think is 1inch off
Anom said on 13/Sep/06
Bloom is 5'9" look it up on wikipedia. most stars say they are 2 inches taller then what they really are. Tom Cruise is 5'7", Brad Pitt is 5'11", Johnny Depp is 5'10". 6' isnt a commen thing with actors even though they all appear to be it.
[Editor Rob: *anybody* can edit wikipedia, including your pet dog. Only 1 person edits this site, so luckily here there's only 1 person here to argue a case that a height listing is incorrect :-/]
tim said on 12/Sep/06
heels give around 2-3 inches, so lets say 3 as a max, and blooms shoes would have around 1 inch so that would have tyler at 6'1 and she appears about 3-4 inches taller so that leaves bloom 5'8-9??
james said on 11/Sep/06
maybe they just are the height of knightley and bruckheimer and other times they just have lifts, the thing to remember i think is that you can always gain height through shoes etc, but even if there is one legitamate photo where you are shorter, it cant be excused, its merely one taken where lifts or heels werent worn and true height is revieled.
Del Mar said on 10/Sep/06
I agree with you there, james, that IS really strange. Like Glenn says, there might be a possibility he uses lift sometimes.
Glenn said on 10/Sep/06
Yeah,guys like Bloom and Depp can give you that illusion.
james said on 9/Sep/06
the thin that gets me is that hes never taller than keira knightley even when shes has ssame heeled shoes as him, nor is he taller than bruckheimer or depp, i wonder why??
Del Mar said on 9/Sep/06
Yes I dont wanna be arrogant, cause I haven't seen him. He has a slim frame, and I think he very well can look 6 ft when he stands up, at least give the illusion of it. He does a lot of slouching, that's for sure, maybe the 179 listing now is very correct.
Glenn said on 8/Sep/06
Alec Baldwin is a legit 6ft.
Glenn said on 8/Sep/06
Thanks for being realistic Del Mar.first time I saw him he looked 6ft! but 5-10 every other time.various lifts?
Del Mar said on 8/Sep/06
Never seen this guy look taller than 5-9. ALWAYS 1-2 inches shorter than Brad Pitt and generally short next to other celebs, but: I've never seen him in person
Glenn said on 8/Sep/06
You could be right.but so can I.
tim said on 7/Sep/06
when there is a big gap between people it is hard to tell exact inches but i know someone who is 6'5 and im only 6'0 and i come up past the nose area so i guess half a head is about 6-7 inches, so im not sure maybe 5'8 for depp and a little more for bloom
Anonymous said on 7/Sep/06
No offense to Glen or anyone else who has run into him when he was sporting his lift boots (ala Pitt, Stallone), but it's fairly obvious from other encounters and pics that this guy is DEFINITELY in the 5' 8" to 5' 9" range. He was a couple of inches shorter than Alec Baldwin in "Elizabethtown" and Baldwin gets listed at 5' 10" or 5' 11" depending where you look.
anonymous said on 7/Sep/06
in that picture orlando is the same height as depp if not smaller, you can see the shoes but usually depp and bloom have pretty high heels, they are about 7 inches shorter than snoop and around 7 inches taller than the olsen so around 5'8 for depp and maybe high 5'8 low 5'9 for bloom would be right
mike said on 7/Sep/06
dmeyer the reason he looks higher than 176 depp is cause depp is only 5'8 orlando is just below 5'9 the proof speaks for itself

mikematt said on 31/Aug/06
i saw that as well ed, and im thinking that there was maybe a 1.5 inch heel there, you seem pretty spot on with 5'9.5
Ed said on 30/Aug/06
Bloom was on Leno last night, and appeared roughly an inch shorter than Leno. Tough to make out considering Leno always does the lean in shake with all guests on the show. In regards to Bloom's footwear, they were very easy to make out since he had one leg folded up while sitting, and you could clearly see his 1.5 inch heeled boots. I'm guessing Bloom's 5ft9.5 barefoot, and 5ft11 with boots.
Anonymous said on 26/Aug/06
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.

Im new to this site and ive been reading this post, and i must say MD your picture is very good, you dont often see many with that full view side to side. anyway if you copy and past it into microsoft paint and then draw a line across the tallest forehead, it would be interesting to hear how much of a gap everyone thinks that is..?
mike said on 10/Aug/06
how do explain him being jerry bruckheimers height, they are dead on next to each other in that picture, there is no tricks no bad angles nothing and they are dead even, theres no possible give or take of 2cm let alone two inches...
Glenn said on 10/Aug/06
Mike-they put whatever you write down.Orlando is no smaller than 5-10.I saw him enough.
mike said on 8/Aug/06
the driving licence doesnt take into account shoes, you can be 5'9 and have shoes which make you 6'0, im 6'0 without shoes on and just my ordinary trainers make me 6'1, and my work shoes make me 6'2 so that photo is irrelevant

I'm wondering that myself, Arthur.

arthur said on 8/Aug/06
the photos originally posted by md with orlando bloom keira knightly and jerry bruckheimer show orlando being the same height as both keira and jerry, now keira has heels but jerry doesnt and both men have fairly high heeled shoes, which leads you to believe that keiras heeled give her a marginal differance if anything, so this leads me to wonder where these 5'11 and 5'10 claims come from, that is a very good picture and indeed warrants some cause to believe he is in the 5'8-9 range???

orlando is 5'11'' In this link, a picture who proves it to you: its hier driving licence! Click Here
jd said on 7/Aug/06
The majority of people say jonny depp is 5'8 and alot even say 5'7, the thing that gets me is that there is alot of pictures with jonny depp and orlando bloom and if anything orlando is maybe 2cm taller at the most, he also stands next to keira knightly when they both have heeled shoes on and they are always the same height, so should this guys height be pretty easily determined???
Moira said on 5/Aug/06
He was at least 4 inches shorter than Brendan Gleeson in Troy but did look about 4 inches shorter than Eric Bana. I think 5'10 is probably a good guess.

Check out those shoes, he's definitely getting at least 2 inches of extra height. I'd be very suprised if he was more than 5'9'' barefoot.

I havnt seen Depp in 10 years.he used to look 5-11 in the early 90s.I wonder how tall he can look now? I know barefoot he is no taller than 5-9.that would help me better judge the pics.
Piratefan06 said on 12/Jul/06
Okay long story short im a massive orlando bloom fan and waited for ages to meet him at the pirates premier. However i was shocked to see that he was shorter than me. I am 5'9 barefoot and had thin soled shoes on and he was shorter than me which shocked me alot..
Anonymous said on 11/Jul/06
Definitely somewhere in between those two, Glenn, and not the 5'10.5"-5'11.5" as originally thought. Any other opinions on the photos?
Glenn said on 11/Jul/06
You have a point Mikematt.I notice when people are walking towards straight in front of me,I get the impression sometimes they are taller than they really are.I saw somebody I know last night in this situation that is 5-9,appear a hair over 5-10 to me.but Orlando did look over 5-11 to me last year,and now looking 5-10 to me last week.these skinny guys throw me off too.its safe to say,he is between 5-9.5 and 5-10.5.where exact,I dont know.
Gotxo said on 11/Jul/06
Very good photos, but i've to say he looks over 5'9". maybe he's not a full 5'11" but i still see a 5'10" there.
mikematt said on 8/Jul/06
well when you see him next to keira knightly he is almost the same height she is 5'7 and is waering heels but so is he, he is basically same as depp who is just 5'8 so he must be struggling to push 5'9. Its funny how the perceptions lead everyone to believe he is tall.
Glenn said on 8/Jul/06
wow.he is looking 5-9 to 5-10 in those pics,as oppossed to 5-10.25 to 5-11.

Hard to beleive Orlando might only be 5-9. Looks taller most of the time.

He even looked close to 6ft a year ago,but the LATEST breaking news is that I saw that piece of garbage last night and did indeed look 5-10.25.there you have it.
MD said on 29/Jun/06
As everyone keeps saying, Orlando can appear 5'11" in shoes, but that would make him no taller than 5'10". The only way he could be the height listed is if he looked a full 6'0" in shoes, and he just doesn't. Rob, it's time to bring him down to at least 5'10"
said on 29/Jun/06
Depp and Bloom. Both around 5'9".
Anonymous said on 29/Jun/06
I trust Glenn, but it's easy to appear 5'11" when you're wearing heeled shoes and you're really 5'9". Depp and Bloom really are the same height and everyone knows that Depp is not over 5'9". I'll find more pics for proof.
Glenn said on 28/Jun/06
The problem with Depp is while he might be 5-9 barefoot,he can be 5-10,5-11 in movies.Orlando appeared 5-11 when I saw him.

Hasn't anyone seen Pirates of the Carribbean? He is the exact same height as Johnny Depp. Exactly, in all scenes. How tall is he? 5'8"? Orlando Bloom is probably 5'9" MAX.

Movies are the worst places to judge a celebrities height as camera tricks are used more often than not, and especially in a movie like LOTR, where it was specifically stated that some characters were made to look taller and shorter.
sitegod said on 21/Apr/06
John, bloom is slouching a bit... I'd say that height is correct after watching LOTR ROTK
Anonymous said on 19/Apr/06
I'm going with the second to last anonymous. How the heck can he be that 5'10.5"? Aragorn was 5'11" and Gandalf is also 5'11" but I thought he was taller. There's no way he's taller than 5'9.
6 foot 1 hockey player said on 18/Apr/06
I am 6 foot 1 as I have stated in my name. People look at me and tell me I am a pretty tall guy. When I look at Orlando Bloom I see a fairly average height. By no means is he short but I think 5 foot 10 5 foot 11 is probably where he is at.

dan said on 15/Mar/06
Just saw Elizabethtown. This guy can't be 179 cm. Watch the scene with Alec Baldwin. They walk together and Baldwin is 2 inches taller... Maybe is Alec Baldwin 6'1''(???!). I'll give Bloom 177 at the most.

He looked the same height as Johnny Depp who is 5'9. He looked two inches shorter than Mortenson who's 5'11" and there was no camera work on them like on the Hobbits.

yeah, you are right, I guess Orlando is leaning in a little but I would still only give him 5'10 max

There's more than an inch difference on that pic between Wahlberg and Bloom. Sure, Wahlberg is not standing straight, but he is closer to the camera than Bloom.

yeah, unless wahlberg is in sandles (and if he is 5'8) it looks like orlando is dead on 5'9

no.Orlando is arrogant.

Hey Glenn..do you have a pic with Orlando? He is an inch shorter than Brad Pitt who is listed at 5'11". Must be the shoes and the hair that makes him look 5'11" perhaps.

have any of you guys seen him in person? I have and he looked 5-11.unless he wears lifts.his body looked long too.

Dude you guys gotta be kiddin me! For the most Bloom is 5'9.5", Pitt's 5'11" tops, and Bana is 6'2". Nothin more nothin less. Besides Pitt does were lifts and without the extra 3 inches he's probably 5'10" barefoot. Now thats reasonable.

Bloom's shorter than Pitt by an inch or more. He is between 5'9" and 5'10"

I ended up here because I just saw Orlando Bloom on Oprah. I also thought he was probably a 6ft tall guy but Oprah was wearing high heels and he was barely as tall as her. And I saw Jon Bon Jovi last week next to Oprah and he was taller than her and I know Jon Bon Jovi is about 5'9". It's a mystery but it makes me wonder how tall is Keira Knightly? She must be petite.

i think Orlando Bloom is about my dad's height except a lil bit taller than him! I mean, it's kinda possible that if Uma Thurman stood next to him she would a few inches taller than him!

I think this guy's height is correct, maybe he can be 180cm.

If Liv stands up straight, she might be taller than Bloom. I think he's closer to 5'9". http://www.lovelylivtyler.com/gallery/showpic.php?keywords=with&cat=&count=2886&origpage=1&picno=1371

What do you think about the photo I post Rob?
Anonymous said on 5/Jan/06
Wow, Bloom looks at least 3.5 inches smaller than Norton. And if Norton is 184cm, than Bloom, according to that photo is about 176cm... And I don't think that's too far from the truth, Orlando doesn't look any taller.

Orlando Bloom: Listed as 5'11'' and 148lbs... Something is wrong there... 5'10.5'' seems to be right, 148lbs not... more like 168.

I can't believe his PR people tried to let him get away with being listed 6'0. The miracle of actors growing 1 1/2 inches when they become a household name.
I think i'll hold back my biased judgement on this guy in future. If you haven't guessed, I don't like the guy and I think that he can't act and has zero screen presence. Just my humble opinion. :)

This is pretty acurate he looks 5'10 1/2 just under 5'11 .

Hey...isn't Brad Pitt 5'11"? Orlando stands an inch or two shorter than Pitt in Troy. Then how can this guy be listed just half an inch shorter? Plz. explain. Don't tell me that only Pitt wears lifts and not this guy. He is not tall enough to avoid wearing lifts. And that puffy hair of his!

Editor Rob- Look at this pic. Mick Jagger and Orlando Bloom are the same height, thats 5'9.5" to 5'10".

i met him he was wearing fat shoes he looked 178 but then i met him the same day he was wearing boots and he looked 5'11 so so it is a good guess rob

Editor Rob-Look at this pic. This is from the Cannes premiere of Troy. Remember, there are other images that show both Pitt and Bloom wearing similar shoes. Here, Orlando looks 2 inches shorter than Pitt who is 5'11.5" according to this site.

Here are is a new photo of him with the 6'3.5" Liam Neeson. He may very well be the currently listed height:
