He does look like 1.83-1.84, but then why is he 5'11 according to Google? Although I know there is not much difference/distance between a 5'11 and a 6 fter in numerical nor physical terms.
Paleman said on 21/May/17
He always looks 6'1", but I've never thought of him as taller than that.
Importer said on 18/Dec/16
I'm surprised that google's measurement is lower than here about 2inches.
Editor Rob:
If I was putting out information like Dano is 5ft 11 and Emile Hirsch is 5ft 7, I'd be thoroughly embarrassed:
Paul Dano and Emile Hirsch.

If you are going to give people information, try to make it somewhat believable πŸ€₯πŸ€₯πŸ€₯

He looks 6'1'' and he's becoming a really great actor.

How tall is zoe with those heels rob ?
Editor Rob: Hafeez, those heels might give her close to actual 4 inches of height.

@THE Horse of FUNK: Yeah I can see an argument for that. He does look 187cm a lot

Day Lewis edged him in There Will Be Blood."

To be fair Day Lewis is an awfully strong 6'1". I personally think Day Lewis is 187cm, 189cm morning and 187cm afternoon kinda guy. Not the 186cm he's listed here. But that's just me.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Apr/16
Yeah this could be closer.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Sep/15
Day Lewis edged him in There Will Be Blood.

Could be a weaker 6ft1
[Editor Rob: I think now 184 range is quite possible, his frame can lend to him looking taller at times]

I think between Cusack and Dano there're 3 cms and i always supported that Cusack is 6'1.75" so a strong 187 cms guy. I think Dano looks a very small fraction taller than what does look Pattinson (6'0.25-0.5") next to Cusack...that means than Dano is 6'0.5" or at best 6'0.75".
I never thought him as a full 6'1" guy!
Sam said on 4/Jun/15
He looks maybe a fraction under 6'1" next to Cusack at the premiere of that film. I think there's a good chance Cusack peaked a bit over 6'2" (maybe 6'2.25") but I would give Dano 6'0.5"-6'0.75" range there if Cusack is 6'2".

I know I've requested him before, but would you add the film's subject Brian Wilson, Rob? He's with the actors in a few of these and looks similar range to Dano I think but Wilson's in his 70s and looks a little worse for wear.
These bios claim "he carries 240 pounds of baby fat on a 6'4" frame":
Click Here
This one states "Brian Wilson is a wonderous vision: six feet, three inches tall, 240 pounds".
Click Here
This one states Brian could be seen "casting his own slightly stopped 6 foot 2 inch shadow".
Click Here
I think between the latter two maybe likely, around 6'2.5" for Wilson's peak.
Judd said on 18/Oct/14
6'0.5" is spot on. he was 0,5" shorter than day lewis
cole said on 27/Sep/14
@Christian: Yeah he did, and Dano is no taller than 6'1. I ain't buying 6'2 for Jackman at all.
Cacau said on 28/May/14
He looks 6 inches taller than De Niro.
Angelaa said on 18/Jan/14
Why does everywhere say 180cm?
Christian said on 22/Nov/13
I think he looked really tall in prisoners, actually taller than Hugh Jackman. I thought 6'2''.

My guess is Cumberbatch is on higher ground and the angle is making him look taller than Dano. Still, I normally wouldn't expect a 6'1" individual to appear closer in height to a 5'10er than a six footer, regardless of his height disadvantages.
Alex said on 14/Nov/13
He looks taller than Gyllenhall but shorter than Jackman in prisoners, 6'1 sounds right.
gsbr said on 11/Nov/13
Maybe it was due to camera angles, ground level, and/or footwear, but he didn't look this height in 12 Years a Slave. He was clearly shorter than the 183 cm Benedict Cumberbatch.
cole said on 14/Oct/13
@Editor Rob: Cheers! I thought he looked every bit of 185 cm with Hugh Jackman and Daniel Day Lewis. So I'd say 6'1 is an honest enough claim, and if he's not a true and full 6'1, he's got to be darn close.

What do you think about this one Rob?

Jake Gyllenhaal arguably has the strongest footwear in the room (he's staring to look more and more like a 5'11 flat guy to me), and is still a bit shorter than 6' Terrence Howard. Paul Dano has the flattest footwear and looks close in height with Hugh Jackman in dress shoes (granted he's slouching heavily).

Maybe Dano is 185 cm range? I think there might be a case to be made.
[Editor Rob: having alook at him just now, yeah he can look that...I'm sure somewhere he said 6ft 1, the comment might have been on here and has been deleted.]
Phantom said on 22/Jul/13

Yeah Dano is probably 186cm in the morning and 184cm at night.

Day Lewis is no taller than 185cm at night though IMO, he's listed as 186cm here though.
Sam said on 22/Jul/13
Yeah, at times, they look the same but Dano can look about half an inch shorter than Day-Lewis in some shots. I think Dano is legtimately in the 6'0.5"-6'1" range.

I just saw him at a cafe in Brooklyn. He looked exactly this height.

This guy was 20-21 in 'Little Miss Sunshine' so I doubt he's grown much since then.
yoyo said on 3/Jun/09
looks 5ft11 in The Ballad of Jack and Rose 2004. must have grow a little taller
Moke said on 15/Apr/09

Matt said on 22/Feb/09
Confusing, he seemed taller than Danel Day Lewis in TWBB..
me said on 11/Jan/09

Stan said on 28/Jul/08
In an interview about There Will Be Blood he said he's 6 ft 1, with Daniel Day Lewis being about half an inch to an inch taller than him.
Erin said on 19/Jul/08

vinny said on 17/Apr/08

sam said on 8/Apr/08
US actor from little miss sunshine, the girl next door, AND , There Will be Blood!!
nate said on 8/Mar/08
i thought he looked at least 6-1 in LMS but Steve Carell is like 5-8, 5-9 aha.
James said on 1/Aug/07
In Little Miss Sunshine I thought he seemed closer to 5'11' than 6'0, compared to Carell and Kinnear. I was also suprised at how carell was as tall as Kinnear, maybe even a tad bit taller.
James said on 14/Oct/05
I live in Miami, so I've seen him once around the Florida City area, I walked right by him, and he was a little taller than me, and Im 5'8". So I think that he's about 5'9" flat.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 2/Jun/05
I thought Trick was atleast 6'0 or 6'1 but 5'9 damn but hey I've never seen him stand by anyone like Method Man or The Game b4(who are both 6'3 or 6'4)
