he often look 178-79 but i agree that 179 is better listing. not 5`10 flat. its either this ore 1/4 under. Of course he could be 180 cm also but i wouldnt bet any money on that.

Looking at Owen Wilson with 5'9 1/4 Eddie Murphy obviously difference between them were not over 1".
Colberto said on 25/Dec/18
Hey rob, how come you given him 5'10 ½". He is listed as 5'10" elsewhere and on google.
Editor Rob
Owen has appeared 178 a lot, but his posture I think is generally weak, so I'm not so sure he would measure 5ft 10 flat.
179cm guy said on 23/Dec/18
Minimum 5'10.25. Maximum 5'10.75.
I think that Rob has him nailed at 5'10.5.
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Sep/18
5'10" flat is possible. I wouldn't rule out Rob's listing either, but he's gotta be somewhere in that range, imo. For what it's worth, Owen's character in The Minus Man describes himself as "not short or tall." I was confused about how tall Brian Cox was when I watched the film. I thought Cox was much taller than he was so I was surprised seeing Owen much taller, but now knowing Cox was no taller than 5'7" it makes sense.

Just seen "father figures", and ed helps consistently edged out own the entire film by a good inch , inch and a half. I didn't think so before, but now I would go as low as 5'10" for owen

My dad is 5'10.75 so I know Owen Wilson is that height by looking at him
MaskDeMasque said on 25/Jun/18
5'10 maybe 5'10.25. I really can't see him at 5'10.5 tbh.
gotinbatko said on 13/Feb/18
Looks a solid 5'10 to me, but I would never give him as much as 5'11.
JJStyles said on 14/Jan/18
i'm surprised he hasn't shrunk rob has he shrunk yet by any chance?
Editor Rob
I can't see any obvious signs he'd have shrunk by now, though ask me in 7-8 years and you never know!
Jo said on 30/Dec/17
Met him twice: 5’10”.
Slim 185 said on 11/Nov/17
He’s closer to 5’10” than 5’11” imho.
Animus said on 5/Nov/17
He's close in height to his brother, Luke, but there is a noticeable difference. Luke is around 181cm and Owen might be a weak 180cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/17
Rob, I'd take out Shangai Knights and replace it with Shangai Noon. Also I'd add Marley & Me to that list...
5'11.25 at noon. said on 10/Aug/17
180cm or 5'10.75 max for him.
Richardspain said on 28/Jul/17
To be honest this actor doesn't look tall in screen he seems almost a guy with average height to me is 178cm barefoot not more
Eddie Murphy is 174/175cm barefoot so for this reason Owen looks taller than Murphy.

Guys;

5'10 MAX to Owen Wilson is plausible but 5'11 or 6 feet etc.. Is too much for him
Richardspain said on 27/Jul/17
Strong 178cm barefoot not more
Rick said on 7/Jul/17
180 morning but 179 regular is a fair listing.
Kourosh said on 5/Jul/17
This guy was an inch or so taller than Dylan obrien who is legit 5'10. Owen is a good 5'11 and no less or more.
James said on 27/Apr/17
Solid 1.79. Great actor by the way, I love his ridicoulous performance in Shanghai Knights.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 19/Apr/17
Rob, who do you think would measure at the tallest (and the shortest) if you had to guess?

1. Owen Wilson-He can appear anywhere from 5'10 1/2" to a fraction over 5'11" on occasion.
2. James Franco-He has awful posture, and kind of unusual proportions (long torso, shorter arms and shorter legs) which makes him seem shorter. He really doesn't look too much different from Seth Rogen.
3. Andrew Garfield-Has good posture and long legs (with a small head) which makes him appear over 6'0" at times. When he's by other celebrities, however, he looks 179-180 CM.
4. Orlando Bloom-He appears to be 177-178 CM from what I've noticed, but was apparently measured at 179.5 CM. I see 1-2 CM between him and Johnny Depp in most photos.
5. Russell Crowe-He can appear to be 5'11" pretty easily.
6. Michael B. Jordan-He's one of the few actors who didn't make Kobe Bryant appear to be taller than his listing. He's also at least two inches taller than Sylvester Stallone.

I would guess that Orlando Bloom would be the shortest, and that Owen Wilson or Russell Crowe would be the tallest.

Owen Wilson is 5'11" in 180 cm tall!

He was easily as tall as matt dollin in "you ,me and dupree" so if dollin is really about 5'11 then wilson should be upgraded

Sandy Cowell said on 3/Feb/17
I have seen Owen Wilson dotted about in various films, but my favourite one is 'You, Me and Dupree'! He is brilliantly annoying to Matt Dillon's newly-wedded character when he 'stays over' for the night, which turns into more and more nights, and there seems to be a mutual attraction between his wife, played by Kate Hudson, and himself!
It's also an ideal film to compare his height from my point of view, as I know Kate is 5ft6 and Matt just under 5ft11.
Owen is 'comfortably' taller than Kate, I'd say 4.5 inches or so and he seems pretty much on par with Matt. I think 5ft10.75 is a sensible and fair guess. I was going to put half an inch shorter, but he is able to look at Matt Dillon face to face, so that is my little bit of evidence! I wish I could back it up with another comparison, but none spring to mind at the moment.
I used to get him badly mixed up with his brother! I thought the actor was going from blond to dark and vice versa! Then I saw their names! Durrgghh!

Rob, don't I recall several years ago when someone claiming to be him was adamant that he was 5-11. You said that it was possible that the post actually came from Owen Wilson himself. Remember?
Editor Rob: yes, a possibility but impossible to tell.

@Mat: Paul Rudd is most likely a little under 5'9 though, certainly nothing over it, but Wilson can definitely look 5'10.75 at times.

5'10.75" 180cm! The consensus seems clear. Owen is not just 5'10.5"

NO WAY BELOW 5'10.5 i page him at 5'11 nothing less.
Mat said on 16/May/16
Rob, don't you think Paul Rudd makes Owen a full 5'11 guy here? Click Here
Editor Rob: I would say almost 2 inches there.

Rob, do you think he could be 178 cm?
Editor Rob: he can look it at times, but I think measures over it.

He only looks 5.5inches shorter than Vince Vaughn. But I doubt Vince is below 6ft5 range.
Johno said on 4/Mar/16
He is a Good 2 inches shorter then David Soul ---- How can he even touch 5'10?

David himself did not look above 5'9.25 with Rob but that they maybe due to posture.

David Soul 5'10
Owen Wilson, honestly ----- shorter then David Soul

Owen is a longtime friend who I know since college. He is 6'2"!!
Alex said on 12/Feb/16
hi everyone. I worked around Owen before and seen him barefoot at plenty of stages. He is around 5"11 half barefoot in the early 90s and early 2000s he just works with taller people.. He's around 5"11 weak now.. It isn't even much of a difference he isn't the type to wear lifts.. I remember him having a laugh about lifts as well ha ha. I am 5"10 and he is taller than me.
Johno said on 5/Feb/16
Saw him on the Graham Norton show, honestly did not look over 5'9.5 with Graham, Elton John nor Jack Black.

in zoolander Owen was visibly taller than David Bowie, so for me he is minimum 5'11 .
charlie said on 15/Dec/15
I am 5 foot 10 inches and there is no way hes my height. Owen is 5 foot 6 inches flat feet. in shoes hes 5 foot 8 but in Hollywood everyone is pretty well fake. Actors are known to wear shoe lifts that can raise a height to 4 even 5 inches. In one movie he will appear shorter where in others he will appear inches taller. Its the magic of the shoe lifts. wen is 5 foot 6 inches
Mr. Hussain. said on 2/Dec/15
More like 5 f 11.
In my Opinion.

Rob he is barely taller then Woody Harrelson he should be downgraded to 5ft10

This listing of 5'10 is crazy. He's 5'9. Even in the film ISPY he's described by costar Eddie Murphy as "a 5'9 blonde surfer boy".

Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 16/Jul/15
He looked 5'11" in Drillbit Taylor. He was maybe an inch taller than the scrawny kid, who seemed to be around 5'10" compared to everybody else. He also was 1.5" inches taller than Philkins in that movie.
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 27/Jun/15
5'10.75" is a better shout (with 6'4.75" being perfect for Vince Vaughn). He's clearly taller than actors who are listed as 5'10". He looked no more than 3.5" inches shorter than Will Ferrell as well.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jun/15
You could argue 5ft11 in Wedding Crashers and The Internship. Either that or Vince Vaughn is struggling with 6ft5 today.
MaskDeMasque said on 19/Jun/15
actually i think 5'10 flat is right for him
Kourosh said on 29/May/15
owen's eyes come under his nose which is 2 inches difference. his 6'1 claim is pretty acceptable.

i know him for about 2 years now and he is 6'1 or solid 6'0 (184 cm) at worst. I'm 5'9.5 and i measured myself plenty of times and my eyes are between his lips and nose, thats close to 3 inches difference between us. Owen stacked up to him almost same as me maybe an inch taller. As you can see in the pic he is dropping more height than owen.

so owen being 5'10.5 or 5'11 is good listing.
Btw my mate name is Mickey Mclean and he is from Edinburgh Scotland :)

can you guess my friend's height? lets take into account hes closer to the camera ( he claimed to be 6'1 thought but i wanna ask you also rob).
[Editor Rob: if he was over 6ft I'd be surprised]
Rob his friend does look 6cm taller than Owen whi not 185cm
[Editor Rob: the close camera will add 2cm to his friend, I can't see him near 6ft 1 unless he is dropping an inch more height.]
184.3cm said on 8/Apr/15
@Judd

Agreed i mean if you look at some of his older movies he doesnt look much over 5'10. Anyone know what he claims himself?
Kourosh said on 7/Apr/15
can look 5'11 easily. not less than 179 cm and not more than 181cm
5'11 fair listing for owen.
Judd said on 7/Apr/15
IMO he's 5'10.25", max 5'10.5"...he did look a bit shorter than David Soul, who rob met and listed 5'11"
Sam said on 6/Apr/15
I recall that bloodless movie, I-Spy, and when promoting the film Murphy and Wilson made a big deal about how they lined up in height. Wilson was definitely a tad taller so may Murphy's 5'9" claim was an inside joke.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Apr/15
5ft10½(179cm) minimum. He can look 5ft11
Sammy Derrick said on 4/Apr/15
In the movie I-spy he is described by Eddie Murphy's character as "he's 5'9 and his got blonde hair."
5'9?REALLY?
Dmeyer said on 4/Jan/15
Rob i think 5'10.75-11 in is closer could you up great him 0.25in i saw him stood near 6'1 eric dane in a Movie he realy looked 5'11-11.25 he also can look 6cm on chan and can look just 5.5-6in under 6'5 vaughn he consistanly looks 5'11
Celebheights 188 CM said on 25/Dec/14
I think that he's the full 5'11" after watching the Internership. I saw about 14-15 CM between him and Vince Vaughn, and he consistently stood his ground appearing tallish by everybody.
Kourosh said on 12/Dec/14
well i think my mate looks every bit of 6'1 guy i dont think hes lying. at worse he might be a fraction shy below 6'1 like 6'0.75.
Owen seems about 2 inches shorter than him in that picture. So, 5'10.5 to 5'11 is about right.
Dmeyer said on 30/Nov/14
If he is 179cm it is at night and Will be 180cm 10am 181 out of bed

Évén if not close to caméra he isnt far off 6'1 of course if Owen was closer he might apear 1in taller making him look 6ftish

breece said on 19/Jul/14
I'm sorry but that is just wrong. I worked with Owen on a movie, and I'm only 5.4, and was wearing 4 inch heals, and he was only a tiny bit taller than me, which means, at the most, he's 5.9.
cole said on 27/May/14
@Nenninn: I would go with 5'10.75 as well, it just seems fair. He wasn't that much shorter than Adrien Brody in 'Midnight in Paris' and didn't look more than 3 inches shorter than Tom Hiddleston in that same movie. Also he has Paul Rudd by near 2 inches, and never looked more than 4 inches shorter than 6'2.75 (imo) Will Ferrell in 'The Internship'. With Vince Vaughn as well he can look nearer 5'11.

@Editor Rob: What do you think about a 0.25in upgrade? It seems fair enough.
Realist said on 21/May/14
178 is spot on. Can vary from 177-180. He is probably a very very weak 5'11. And a solid 5'10. Michael Sheen looks about an inch shorter so 175-76. Rachel McAdams is 161-162. Rob you've got to downgrade her to 161 and Sheen by to 175-76. Owen Wilson is fine for the time being.
Nenninn said on 19/Mar/14

He can look closer to 5'11 than 5'10 flat imo. 5'10.5 is probably spot on, but I wouldn't bet on him being any shorter.

i searched for pics of Owen wilson and on the red carpet pics of him and Jackie Chan, he only looks just over an inch taller. Still i believe he's over 50ft10 range. Never looked below it.
Realist said on 6/Jan/14
177 is exact.In Wedding Crashers he is 2.5-3 inches less than controversial 6'0 feet Bradley Cooper.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jan/14
"Owen Wilson height: 5ft 10.75in (180cm)"

He isn't anything less than that if Luke Wilson is near 6ft.
Rob, is the full 5ft11 possible even?

Looks much taller on screen. Met at dinner at Ago one night. Say maybe 5'9"-5'10". Warm summer night so maybe sandles that evening, I was a bit suprised to be looking down, didn't figure on a Harvey Kietel affect who was also hanging.

Owen Wilson is legitimately at least 5'10.5". Met him when he was filming Shanghai Noon, and stood back-to-back to measure (I'm 5'11).

From seeing him alongside Vince Vaughn, Tom Hiddleston, Jason Sudeikis and Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy and Matt Dillon, I think he could be 5'10.75, 180 cm. Do you think he can look that height, Rob? He seemed eye to eye with Matt Dillon in You Me And Dupree.
Original said on 17/Jun/13
179cm, maybe 180cm is possible.

I thought he looked near 5 ft 11 in Drillbit Taylor. Don't care what the critics said about that film, I thought the piss-taking of Seagal and some of the things he said were hilarious.

He is anywhere between 1.74 and 1.80, i would say 1.78-1.79.

Sudeikis is not 6'1 - Hader is 6'1 and has probably slight advantage: Click Here
I'd say overall Owen can look in the 178-180 cm range.
Mike said on 27/Dec/12
5'10.5 seems about right to me. He looked all of that next to 6'2 Tom Hiddleston in Midnight In Paris.

Albeit, Hiddleston's posture isn't great in that one.

This one's probably more accurate.

Check out a pic of Armageddon when they are all standing in a line,he's about 4 inches shorter than Bruce Willis.5"7 i think.

I think he could 5"11/180cm. There is less than 1in between him and Luke Wilson.
Also looks this opposite 184-185cm Jason Sudiekis in Hall Pass.

'what?' your really going to say he is 5'6? hahahha people like you need to stop posting on here. just because your probably short yourself, it doesnt mean you have to lower everyones height 4 inches.

if you search youtube for the cable guy with owen wislon in the bathroom/ toilet scene they look almost the same height, Owen is maybe an inch shorter than Jim Carrey, and Jim is even wearing quite an amount of heel ( when owen is on the floor Jim crouches down and puts on sun glasses, you can just see his heel as he walks off). So it seems Owen is taller than his listing on here.

Silent d said on 23/Oct/11
Sudeikis next bateman looks 184cm. In hall pas owen wilson looks 179cm. In all his movies he has always looked 179cm. I believe he is that tall. His brother luke sometimes looks 175cm. In around the world in 80 days with jackie chan. He is about the same height as his brother luke. Luke is not a six footer. In old school looks 175cm next to vince vaughn, will ferrell and ellen pompeo.
LAN Jiao said on 14/Oct/11
Andrew Wilson every bite of 6'1 listed an d standing out tall at 6'1.
Owen 5'11 and younger bro Luke 5'11.5 is bullxxxx.
Owen -- 177cm
Luke -- 178-179cm.
Lazlo said on 1/Oct/11
nope, walked right by him --I was a foot away and I'm 5'9 on the dot, Wilson is 6 feet, but not over. Sorry, once again I've found that the "official" listings on this site are WRONG when confronted with the empirical evidence myself.

Hi Hansen ... thanks for that, yeah they're pretty similar, not noticed that before but you're right :o)
Regards AD
Hansen said on 23/Aug/11
hi AD ,

guess u see my latest comment here. sorry hope not messing up people's brain think jason sudeikis listed 6ft everywhere.lol. my mistake he was listed 6ft1 most site not 6ft , 6ft was sudeikis lookalike ed helms.

regards
hansen :)
AD said on 23/Aug/11
Is Jason Sudeikis listed as 6ft everywhere? ...I've just looked and seen many listings for 6'1" but not for 6'0". Anyway, the point that makes me think more towards 5'11" for Owen is that shot of him against the height chart with his head touching the 6' mark (with shoes on), it's a 'blink and you miss it' shot in the film, he really doesn't strike me as the kind of person who would stage that to alter his height just for a one second shot.
Hansen said on 23/Aug/11
sorry by mistake, i mix up 6ft listed Ed Helms with Jason Sudeikis.lol ;p
but i did really think Jason Sudeikis looks a legit 6ft or 5ft11.5 ..while owen..haha top on 5ft10ish.
Hansen said on 22/Aug/11
Jason Sudeikis is listed 6ft everywhere. wonder how e 6ft1 came from? lol.. owen wilson was first listed 5ft10 before get change 5ft11 now. he could't be growing any taller. atually he looked 5ft9.5 alot. 5ft10 maybe
AD said on 15/Aug/11
There was a quick-flash shot of him against a mugshot height chart in Hall Pass... he would have been in shoes but his head touched the 6ft line on the chart, so barefoot I'd say somewhere around 180cm, he also didn't look any more than 2 inches smaller than 6'1" Jason Sudeikis throughout the film.
Oliver 5ft8 said on 30/Jul/11
I think he's 5'10''
Gil said on 12/Jul/11
He looks 5'9" tops.
Hmm said on 10/Jul/11
Could be anywhere from 5'9 to 5'11. Tough call...
Matt said on 27/Jun/11
@ slowcode, you're nuts. Guy is 5'10.5-5'11" 5'5-5'6 is laughable. i guess you're not as good as you think you are at guessing height
RICHARD said on 13/Jun/11
I don't know about this guy.He's tricky to gauge,even next to tall guys like Vince Vaughn,Snoop Dogg,Bardley Cooper,etc... He can look average(5'9") to tall(6'0") in some films,though in Wedding Crashers he did look a flat 1.80 cm next to Vaughn's towering height of 1.96cm(6'5"),and even in Hall Pass he wasn't dwarfed by Jason Sudeikis(6'1") so Owen,IMO,is a solid 5'11" guy.
dmeyer said on 27/May/11
close enaugh 5 ft 11
Gerard said on 19/Apr/11
He has an awkward posture, average height, I think 5'10" (177-178cm) would be spot on... He probably was 5'11" in his 20s.
brad said on 14/Apr/11
I saw Owen wilson stood a couple feet from him behind a fence. He came over and said hi to a crowd of screaming girls when they shot Marly and Me in my home town. 2 observations. The first is that he is very thin! 170 if that. Second he was shorter than expected my friend is 5'9" and Owen was spot on the same height. I was absolutely convinced by his films he was 5-11ish. Very friendly and seemed to be pretty humble.
hey i know that guy said on 11/Mar/11
5 ft 10 1/2 in bare feet is probably right on. if i had to tilt it one way or another, i'd say closer to 5-11. he is definitely a bit shorter than his bro luke by a couple centimeters, and luke is just short of 6 ft. their oldest brother, andy, is way bigger than these two, he is at least 6 ft 2 and 50 pounds heavier. i bet owen and luke each weigh about 165-170.
ka said on 24/Jan/11
Hey Rob is 5'10 and 3/4 possible for Owen? I thought he's 2 inch and a bit taller than Jackie Chan in Shanghai Knight...
tell-em said on 18/Jan/11
looked tall in LITTLE FOCKERS.but thats cause stiller is shorter at under 5'6" and de niro isn't over 5'7.5 these days. owen is only 5'10".
Mat said on 9/Jan/11
I work at Mama's Fish House in Maui. He comes in alot. He looks like a short 5'11" or a tall 5'10". So 5'10.5" seems like a perfect estimate.
5'7.37 said on 4/Jan/11
Jackie Chan looks kinda shrinked nowadays, so he gives the impression of being shorter than he actually is (5'8.5) and Owen is clearly 2" taller so hes about 5'10.5, since Luke is visibly taller at times (luke might have an even worse posture than Owen) while the oldest brother Andrew is a solid 6'2.
Clay said on 11/Dec/10

looks 5'9 or 5'9 and a half next to stiller

If you looked carefully, in the movie ''Starsky and Hutch'' Wilson towered the 5'6.5 Stiller in a locker room scene where they were barefoot.
Jam said on 30/Nov/10
Seems like a quintessential 5'9. Plus a half inch if you must...
James said on 28/Nov/10
I agree with Demeyer Owen Wilson looks 5'11 with Vince Vaughn. If Vince Vaughn really was 196cm then Owen would be 5'11-6'0 but I think Owen is 180cm flat in comparison to 194-195cm Vince Vaughn.
gifty sowah said on 27/Nov/10
draw a ray diagram to show that a vertical mirror need not be 180cm long in order that a man 18cm tall may see a full length image of himself in it

Rob you woulden't rule out Owen wearing chunky or enhanced footware next to man mountain Vince Vaughn?
James said on 25/Jun/09
Rob have you seen pictures of Owen next to legit 6'5er Vince Vaughn? Its strange next to Vince Owen looks 5'11.5-6'0. Does he wear lifts whenever he's with Vince?

[Editor Rob: he can look 5ft 11 mostly yes, maybe he is nearer that.]

oops...meant to say definitely not 5'9"! :)
mimi said on 5/Jun/09
Definitely 5'9"...my boyfriend is 5'9" and Owen was a bit taller than him when he walked by.
Gago said on 4/Jun/09
well I didn't post over here since Glenn took this page over, but now that he's gone, I'll say that about 2 years ago he was staying in Santa Monica for the movie You, Me and Dupree press junket, and I saw him barefoot when he came back from skateboarding and he looked like a 5'9 guy, I could be off half an inch, but he's not 5'10 or 5'11.
mimi said on 4/Jun/09
Cece's sighting is TOTALLY wrong!! I've seen Owen around Austin and he is approx. 5'10-5'11. Kinda hard to pinpoint him since I have only seen him walk by and not just standing.
cece said on 3/Jun/09
I just saw him at our hotel and we were surprised how small and SHORT he actually was! that is why I asked ask.com, how tall he was and found this blog..we think he is around 5'4"...and were azmazed to see how slight he was..I happen to think he is great and he looks very tall in all his movies..esp. Meet the parents and wedding crashers...
bam said on 1/Jun/09
rob, the guy is 5'11.

he looked this near eddie murphy and jackie chan

he looked this near alan arkin, bare minimum.

he IS 5'11.

I would consider an upgrade to 5'10.5 though in the near future rob, its obviously not very different from your listing.
chris175 said on 23/May/09
was taller than steve coogan in the new night at the museum 2 film, i think coogan is in the 5-10 range, i think owen is easily 5-10.25 probably more like 5-10.75ish
Midget said on 21/May/09
To me,even with poor posture he still looked 5'10 ish in Marley and me.
Ian said on 20/May/09
Ben Stiller towered over him in Night of Museum. He looked really small in that film. LOL.
TELLEM said on 17/May/09
5'9 is ludacrous, not even a joke, because if it was, then i'd be LOL. 5'10.5 i agree wif.
glenn said on 16/May/09
and some say he is 5-9.like mario lopez is 5-8.
James said on 16/May/09
I saw solid 5'11 in Drilbit Taylor.
The Voice of Reason said on 28/Apr/09
He looked quite close in height to Christopher Walken in Wedding Crashers. I'd say at least 5'10.5", maybe a weak 5'11".
RisingForce said on 7/Apr/09
Yeah James, I'd imagine he's around that. A weak 5'11" or just under as you said.
RisingForce said on 4/Apr/09
Owen is not 5-9, that's just downgrading and 5-8? No chance.
Random Person said on 29/Mar/09
He did seem 5'9 in Marley and Me.
horacle said on 28/Mar/09
he is 5'10.5 no less
adam said on 27/Mar/09
Rob, I`ve always wanted to ask you about Frank2. What do you really think of the fellow? He seemed to be a reasonable guy. Do you trust his words? Obviously you dont, at least to all of his words since you have Wilson at a solid 5-10 while Frank2 said that he was 5-9 max and possibly 5-8.
J.Lee said on 23/Mar/09
here is a pic of him and Jennifer aniston. she is wearing at least 4 inch heels and he is still 2 or 3 inches taller. So if she is 5 foot 5 and the heels maker her 3 inches taller that makes her five eight. so if he is five then and wears 1 inch shoes that makes him 3 inches taller in this pic. seems about right. Click Here
Comets said on 1/Mar/09
wow, i could have sworn he was over 6 feet..good to know some actors look the height :D
RisingForce said on 1/Feb/09
Yeah if he brings it up. His Stallone claims are laughable too.
glenn said on 1/Feb/09
risingforce and clay.can you both back me on the stallone page that owen isnt the 5-9 that vaj claims? he is the one that said that many times.and that oscar de la hoya was 5-8.and mario lopez is 5-8.when both are at least 5-9.if not 5-10.
RisingForce said on 31/Jan/09
Well Glenn then they don't know what a 5'9" guy looks like. 5'9" and 5'10" guys can look short on screen, even when they have good posture. Owen never looks short on screen and he has poor posture.
Clay said on 30/Jan/09
5'10.5. And Luke Wilson is closer to 5'11 than 6'1...
glenn said on 25/Jan/09
a someone sweared here he was 5-9.and wouldnt budge.
RisingForce said on 23/Jan/09
I think he is a solid 5'11" guy. He doesn't have good posture.
Lenad said on 6/Jan/09
Yep. Looked the same if not a tad shorter than Matt Dillon. Hes probably a 179cm guy.
anonymous said on 5/Jan/09
In around the world in 80 days, he is same height as luke wilson who is 6 foot 1. Maybe he was wearing lifts or camera angles. He's 5 foot 11. Never looked shorter.
michael said on 4/Jan/09
I would guess he's about 5'10" or 5'11",maybe 6 feet. I saw him on You,Me And Dupree and he was about the same height or a little shorter than Matt Dillon.
anonymous said on 2/Jan/09
"James says on 18/Nov/08
Owen Wilson probably just made a slight joke of them describing him as shorter. If it was Brad Pitt or Matt Damon they would sue the film company."

In one of the bourne films, it lists matt damons height as being 5`7-5`9.
Although i do agree with you about brad pitt. He was listed as being 6`1 in mr. and mrs. smith, and i cannot see him allowing a film to list him as under 5`11.
anonymous said on 20/Dec/08
In marley and me, he had a good 17cm on 164cm jennifer aniston. He is a solid 5 foot 11. In weddig crashers, he looks 5 foot 11.
yoyo said on 18/Dec/08
his handsome elder bro Andrew claim only 6ft1 but always stand out on Luke and Owen. i would say Owen is solid 178cm, Luke 180cm and Andrew is 188cm.
mcfan said on 2/Dec/08
5'10.25 or 5'10.5 looks right. He's got Kevin Spacey posture...very bad. At times he can look 5'9, but that's because of this terrible slouch. Next to Bill Murray in some photos, he looks 4 inches shorter than him. However, if you catch the movie, he only looks 2.5-3 inches shorter than Bill.
Complex said on 1/Dec/08
Yeah but John if he were 5'11 then Pitt wouldn't be afraid to admit his height, but since he's 5'9.5-5'10, he's ashamed to admit it!

But that is true amit and what's strange if you watch that movie, he's in the biggest boots ever. Specially noticeable in the bowling alley...
John said on 20/Nov/08
I don't understand why pitt would be ashamed to admit his height, for me he is atleast 5"11, and that is a good height to be honest. And also i agree with Leung, Owen Wilson is a good guy for admitting his height honestly, it is obvious how conscious hollywood stars are getting of their heights and what not. Might move on to another forum, theres no debate in this one haha.
Leung said on 18/Nov/08
yeah you gotta admire Owen Wilson for that.
Complex said on 17/Nov/08
James you're right about the Pitt & Damon comment, actually with Pitt, he never lets his height come out, which is suspicious. If you watch ocean's twelve when they're heights are being described by the police, they say everyone's height and when they get to Pitt's character (Rusty Ryan) she says "male, caucasion....." then it fades to the next scene. Also the same in Mr. & Mrs. Smith it lists Angelina's height on the prompt for her bounty but not Pitt's. It's almost like he doesn't want to claim a height in suspicion that someone will find out the truth.

But I know leung, he prolly is taller, I just found it wierd, but it's like James said, Owen must be good, if it were me, I wouldn't let them describe me shorter than I was cuz ppl would take the ball and run with it!
glenn said on 17/Nov/08
good point john.as leung says,owen is close to 5-11.if not that to me.
John said on 16/Nov/08
In Wedding Crashers Wilson is next to Vince Vaughn throughout the film. If Vaughn was a regular sized guy of say, 6ft, that would mean Wilson would be looking at a smaller size of about 5ft 6. However Vince Vaughn is close to 6ft 5, making Wilson atleast 5ft10.5 i would say.
Leung said on 13/Nov/08
Complex, I know the scene you are talking about but it
Complex said on 13/Nov/08
I'm not sure with Owen, but I am watching I Spy right now and he was described by Eddie Murphy as 5'9 when Eddie is under a interrogation test, then Owen confirms it by saying "You didn't give them too much, you only said I was blonde and 5'9 but you didn't give a name."

Not sure how tall he is, but this is interesting.
Lenad said on 7/Nov/08
He wasnt that Much shorter than Jon Voight in Anaconda but when has Voight ever looked 6'3?
glenn said on 7/Nov/08
seriously guys.
The Horse of FUNK said on 6/Nov/08
No, 5'9" and 5'10" are too low for him. If I had to make a guess I'd say 5'10.75"-5'11". He just doesn't have the build of a 5'10" guy; he's put together fairly well, looks a solid 180cm. If we want to be pin-point accurate then I say give him 5ft 10.875" like Rupert Graves lol.
Clay said on 6/Nov/08
Yeah, well people here have some serious agenda going on where they want to make everyone 2 inches shorter.
glenn said on 6/Nov/08
absolutely.some here claimed 5-9 for owen.5-11 it is.in converse last time i saw him.
Clay said on 5/Nov/08
5'10.5-5'11. No doubt he's genuinely that tall check out the barefoot scenes in Starsky and Hutch where he OWNS Stiller.
Hugh said on 4/Nov/08
Saw this gentleman the other day outside the Chateau Marmont in beautiful and Sunny Los Angelos, California. I'd would say closer to 5ft11. 5ft10.75 perhaps? The guy was in sneakers.
glenn said on 31/Oct/08
he looked it in converse next to me.
Clay said on 30/Oct/08
Glenn - he looked it in Starsky and Hutch easily.
dmeyer said on 30/Oct/08
this guy is a 179er
glenn said on 30/Oct/08
and that he is clay.
Clay said on 28/Oct/08
He could be a short looking 5'11.
anonymous said on 21/Oct/08
He was taller than 175cm jackie chan by a few inches. He was shorter than vince vaughn by about 14cm. I would say he's 180cm max no taller.
Anonymous said on 3/Oct/08
I distinctly remember watching Vince Vaughn on Jay Leno about 10 years ago when he first was getting big and he claimed 6'4 then. I know the dude is tall, no question, but I often wonder if he isn't closer to 6'4 and just added the extra inch as he got bigger in hollywood. This would make more sense, cuz He did look 5.5-6 inches taller than Owen and that would put owen aroudn the height Rob has him at. Owen certainly didn't look like a guy pushing 6' in any of his movies with Stiller.
Alex said on 22/Sep/08
I'd go with 5'10 for him. A legit 5'10 can look 5'11-6'0 on TV sometimes. In Wedding Crashers 6'5 Vince Vaughn had 7 inches on him I believe.
Lisa said on 31/Aug/08
Owen is definitely shorter than 5'11....significantly. What brought me to this page is Drillbit Taylor. I noticed that when he did the "chickenwing" thing in Drillbit that his arms were extraordinarily short. Then I just watched him and compared him to others in the movie. I began to wonder just how tall he is...5'11 is entirely bogus.....check it out!
Clay said on 25/Aug/08
Just watched Meet the Fockers again, he has a clear 4 inch advantage over 5'6.5/5'7 Stiller.
Anonymous said on 7/Aug/08
me too. you couldn't respectfully disagree with the guy. and he wasn't 5'8 either.
Steve said on 3/Aug/08

I have the same shoes stiller wore in that movie. they give like 1/4". probably why Owen looked taller than normal by comparison.
Nik said on 28/May/08
I'd say he's a little closer to 5-11 than 5-10. In Starsky and Hutch he looked between 4 and 5 inches taller than Ben Stiller.
Paul said on 30/Apr/08
Wow, first time I've checked on this in a while, and I was just saying my best guess following him from the movies. Glenn, chill on the whole subject, not all of us have to luxury of meeting all of these people, I was just giving my best guess.
RevInstone said on 18/Apr/08
He looked to be the same height as Matt Dillon and Seth Rogan in Dupree.

I don't believe he's "5'10" at all. He has said in quite a few movies that he is 5'9". "Starsky and Hutch" and "Bottle Rocket" and he is described as 5'9" in "I-Spy"

Owen always looks sort of tall, but in my opinion not quite 5-11, more like 5-10 and a half
Lebensdorf said on 16/Feb/08
Here is a very telling picture of Owen with his two brothers, Andrew and Luke.
Andrew is supposed to be 6'1'', but he looks to be taller.

valeri-i agree that owen is 5-11.some say brody is 6-1.can you post that owen is 5-11 on the sly page? some people think owen is 5-9.
Valeri said on 10/Feb/08
Owen looked a stellar 5'11 in The Darjeeling Limited,he was only an inch under Adrien Brody.So if brody is 6',then owen is 5'11 and 6 and a half for brody would mean 5'11.5 for owen.Like me,im a bit shocked.But he looked that through the whole movie.good movie too.
Lifeaquatic said on 8/Feb/08
I just finished watching a life aquatic with steve zissou and I was curious to find out bill murrays height because he looked pretty tall in that flick. But after seeing this site and the obsession its contributors carry I'm somewhat ashamed. Obviously there is some sort of complex issue rooted here
