@cole Yes, at all these pictures it's hard to judge correctly, but I can clearly to see a difference even with bad postures and positions, not big but at least 1-2 cm. I hope too=)
cole said on 22/May/14
@Alex: I didn't see a lot of usable shots in that search to argue much, mostly just pics of Matt in thinner footwear standing in his usual care free stance, and Gosling standing quite some distance away from him. Hope there'll be a couple of decent full body shots of just Gosling and Matt soon. My bet is they would look pretty close, Gosling most likely having the edge.
Batman said on 10/May/14
Hey Rob, what do you think of his head size? 9.5in or something like that? maybe 9.75?
Editor Rob
in that range is likely
cole said on 3/May/14
One with Clooney I hadn't seen before: Click Here
Most of the shots of them together is either not full body or they have some sort of distortion to them. The difference in the various shots can go from looking like Gosling barely having the edge on Clooney to Gosling looking about 1.5-2 inches taller...

@Editor Rob: Mind adding a picture to his page?
Mon said on 26/Apr/14
He has a small torso and does minimise his upper body posture-wise, but his overall proportions (head to total height), look to be that of a man taller that a flat 6. That's true even when he is barefoot, which hardly suggests boosted footwear Everything looks very compatible with him being comfortably over six foot. Look at him walking with Eva Mendes, with her in 3 inch heels their kneecaps were at the same height. On the rare occasion she didn't wear really high heels, her head was barely above his shoulder. No question he is shorter that 6'3'' Will Ferrell*, based on a sketch they did, but anyone can see Ferrell can't have anything like a clear 3 inches of height on Gosling. Laughable that Gosling could be under 6 foot. He is 6'1'' with rather poor carriage costing him an inch or so.

(*Why are so many comedians seriously tall?)
cole said on 24/Apr/14
It's safe to say you could argue between 6' and 6'0.5. I think he has looked a weak 6ft / very strong 5'11 one or two times, but he's probably a decent 183 cm range guy if measured - 6ft nothing or a fraction above it. 6ft even is what he looks to me most of the time.

No need to even mention 187-188 cm range. That's just... not even close...
Mon said on 23/Apr/14
Clooney has a bit of a thing about his stature, it shows in his self deprecating jokes. He clowned for photos with Stacy Keibler at the Golden Globe awards (getting her to step off a platform so he towered over her). I think tall people get him joking like that. But would a 6ft 0.5in Gosling?

Seahawksfan, I think he is a strong 6'1'' with NORMAL actor's posture. Alongside Cranston, Gosling wasn't strainedly standing tall he was in motion just walking relaxedly. He really has consistantly minimising posture for a leading man. The neck and shoulders are carried low, and he bends forward at the waist a little bit when he walks too. There is a quick shot of him from the side walking in the scene in Drive where he steals a car from the street.
Mon said on 18/Apr/14
Another close look at Drive: in garage at the beginning of Drive when Gosling collects the car from Cranstone, Gosling is further from the camera as they walk, but seems to have more than 2 inches on Cranston. And at the race track he definitely does, despite the fact that Gosling's head is down looking down while taking off his gloves as they walk to meet Brooks's character. Gosling does not have a big framed upper body (narrow shoulders) so I was too hasty about his 150 lb at the age of 29 ruling out 6'1''. Conclusion: an under the radar rock solid 6'1''. Clooney would hardly be calling an actor over 6 foot 'a lot smaller than you would think' except as an ironic reference to his own surprise at how tall Gosling actually is.
Editor Rob
Clooney tells the truth on Gosling
Mon said on 17/Apr/14
Gosling added a clear inch on the other photo just because he had to take one hand out of the jacket to put it on Gyllenhaal's shoulder. It shows that, like I said, he lives in a slouch. Difficult to believe he was wearing substantially heeled dress shoes with that jacket n' jeans ensemble . With perfect posture a weak 6'2'' is a possibility. I think he is a solid 6'1''.
Mon said on 16/Apr/14
For an leading man Gosling doesn't stand very straight. Someone with a lot o' neck and a bit of a slouch can easily conceal nearly an inch of real height; Gosling is young enough that he proly hasn't permanently lost height through though habitual bad posture . Unlikely someone who doesn't bother standing tall uses footwear boosting dress shoes at premieres. I think he may be very very near six one if he was to use the kind of posture that actors routinely do use. Gosling looks very much closer to 6'1'' than 6' while facing Biberi in the park scene of Drive. Moreover, Gosling uses his trademark in this film of keeping his hands in the pocket of his jacket so he has no posture advantage over Biberi. And Biberi, listed at 6'4'', has thick soled trainers on, while Gosling has low heel shoes. Yet I can't see Gosling being any more than 3 inches shorter. With the kind of posture that Charles Bronson used, Gosling might be able to deploy a reserve half an inch, making him as near a full 6'1'' as makes no difference. So I would not rule it out.

a weak 182cm max, no more, when steve carrel stood by him he wasn't much taller in crazy, stupid, love. A weak 182cm. 184cm is too much
SAK said on 9/Apr/14
He hovers around 183-184cm depending on time of day.

I do believe he looked about 1.5-1.75 in shorter than 6'2" Ryan Reynolds.

As I said in this post before, my boyfriend and I met Gosling and he was just about the same height as my boyfriend who is (barefoot) 6' tall. My boyfriend was wrapping vans and Gosling was wearing sandals. He is between 5'11 and 6'. My boyfriend's height is not a guess, I've seen him measured at the hospital before he had knee surgery, BAREFOOT. People, please take my word for it.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Feb/14
Rob can you add the Ides of March? Spot on, looks just under 6'1" next to Philip Seymour Hoffman.
MR.HEIGHT said on 9/Feb/14
I feel the height u list him at is his height out of bed.. True barefeet hight is a solid 5' 11.75".. 6ft flat is possible
lelman said on 28/Jan/14
Bradley Cooper is about half an inch taller than Gosling, given all of the evidence. Sometimes they look the same height, sometimes Cooper looks a bit taller, VERY RARELY does Gosling look taller than Cooper (you can cherry pick photos/videos as much as you like).

Gosling: 5'11.5" - 6'0"
Cooper: 6'0" - 6'0.5"
truth said on 25/Jan/14
182-183cm could be it though.

5'11" to 6' max slim build can make him look taller...

@Editor Rob: Indeed! It would have been nice to see them in a straight full body-shot together, and I'm hoping to find one as I'm not sure there'd be a full 4in between them.

Looked not much taller than steve carrel! Id say he's 181cm , max 182-183
Mon said on 24/Dec/13
Oops, a correction, he says he was 150 lb at the age of 29 so he can't be 6'1''. Very slender and hence looks taller onscreen than he is, seems to be the explanation. Cranston plays his character in Drive with a stoop.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Dec/13
Probably 186cm out of bed
James said on 19/Dec/13

Interesting points and il make sure I go and have a look through Drive again at the scenes you mention. The problem is with people like Gosling is thay there height is all over, however not so as much as the blatent lift wearing Bradley Cooper, which shoes the potential variation in footwear, if you watch crazy stupid love Gosling honestly looks 181 flat with Carrel directly face to face, it's a scene where Carrel is barefoot and Gosling has shoe's on and it's the only
point where Gosling looks 6ft.
Mon said on 18/Dec/13
In the racecar scene where Gosling and Cranston are shown full length in the walk to meet Brooks, Gosling has a very comfortable two inches on Cranston who he makes look small. While I agree Christina Hendricks in motion is very distracting, image search James Biberi. I have Drive, and in the meet scene Gosling stands straighter than in any other scene (to face off Biberi's towering goon). Biberi is taller no question, but based on that scene Gosling could be 5ft 11.25 only if his parachute failed to open. 5' 8½ Oscar Isaac is in the scene too and he is dwarfed by Gosling. Ryan Gosling is 6'½'' in his usual slouch. 6'1'' if he carries himself with normal actor's bearing (*ie perfectly upright). Someone trying to steal a little height is going to stand straight before he goes for boosting footwear, Clooney was being ironic.
James said on 17/Dec/13

A simple image search will show you that Gosling is nowhere near 2 inches taller than Cranston. As for that scene you cannot base her walking behind him as a good basis to argue his height, remember when people walk they bob up and down as such and that can give or take 2 inches easily. Gosling with 5ft 9 Steve Carrel in Crazy Stupid Love is all the evidence you need that Gosling is around 181. Solid 5ft 11.25 guy, probably a tad over 6ft out of bed.
Mon said on 16/Dec/13
From how Gosling dwarfed her while she was footwear boosted in 'Drive', I thought Christina Hendricks was short until I looked at her page on this site. Clooney was being ironic. Gosling is a habitual sloucher who doesn't care.
Mon said on 16/Dec/13
A solid 6'1'' sloucher who may approach 6'2'' with perfect posture. In 'Drive' has more than 2 inches on 5'10.5 Bryan Cranston in every scene. In the park meet scene in 'Drive' 5'7'' Christina Hendricks (who it can be seen is wearing 2-3 inch high heels) starts close to camera and walks behind him and he is has to have at least 2.5 inches inches on her. Again in the park meet scene he is not that much smaller than James Biberi (who claims 6'4'').
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Dec/13
Somewhere in the 6ft-6ft1 range.

Bill said on 3/Dec/13
George Clooney on Gosling, "What you don’t know is that [Ryan] is much shorter in real life. When you see him — if you see him — he’s wearing huge heels… like Louboutins!”

Click Here

He initially looks like a guy who would be about 5'10 - 5'11, but he actually looks considerably taller than Clooney (5'10.75) in pictures. I think Clooney is likely closer to 5'10. Gosling at 6'0 - 6'1 seems about right, but I could also see him at 5'11. Tough to pin down with footwear.

That is standing up straight. You call Gosling slouching to his left and letting Cooper lean into him standing up straight?
Lando said on 6/Nov/13

Sam said on 6/Nov/13
Looking at all the pictures of Gosling and Cooper, you get the impression that they are closer in height than some of the oft-posted ones that seem to show Cooper as inches taller. I think it is possible that Cooper is a tad taller than Gosling but not by a whole lot.
gsbr said on 5/Nov/13

Gosling has poor posture in both of those images. When Cooper shows bad posture, Gosling is taller. And when they both stand up straight, their eye level is the same.

@truth: Generally I feel the 180 cm flat is maybe too low a guess, but he has looked it at times, so that's why I mentioned it as the lowest height he has ever appeared (at least to me). Realisticly though I'd say he could be a 6ft flat guy, with a chance of 182 cm, like Balrog said.

That picture has too many variables. Gosling and Carell are at an angle, neither of them are standing straight, Carell is closer to the camera, and Gosling is lowering his head.

Click Here

Click Here

While the angles in these pictures aren't the greatest either, they both have Gosling standing face to face with another actor. In the former, he's taller than the 182 cm David Strathairn, and in the latter, he's taller than the 183 cm Christian Bale.

And in a full body shot with the 184 cm Bradley Cooper, they're pretty much the same height.

6'0.5 best.

Balrog said on 19/Oct/13
Both Cooper and Gosling are 6'0" to me with a chance of 182cm but Cooper always has big footwear.
cole said on 18/Oct/13
@Sean: I agree. What's your estimations on Gosling and Cooper?

Since I'm not anywhere near 100% positive, my "roughly-estimations" would be:
Gosling: 5'11 at worst - 6'0 at best.
Cooper: 5'11.5 at worst - 6'0.5 at best.

Personally I am in the dark when it comes to pegging both Ryan and Bradley at a height they can consistantly look (as is the case with a large amount of celebs). To me they both seem to vary so much (In Cooper's case that could be down to footwear and camera-angles, in Gosling's case it could be down to posture and camera-angles) - from looking barely over 5'11 (Gosling with Carell; on screen - Cooper with Shepard; off screen) - to clearing the 6ft mark by some margin (Gosling with Carell; off screen - Cooper with Shepard; on screen).

It largely depends though on who they are standing next to, and wheter or not I believe that the height those people are listed is reasonable or not. And the various differences in footwear, posture etc. doesn't exactly make it any easier. So being 100% accurate is impossible. In the end it's all a bunch of guess-work, at least until you see an actual, legit measurement.

In any case I just feel like the listed 6ft 0.5in is a bit too much for Gosling - to me he generally gives a shorter impression. It might be something Cooper could measure at some point - in my opinion that would be early on.
Sean said on 16/Oct/13
@Cole Yeah, you're probably right, assuming they're wearing equal footwear, Cooper's probably about half an inch taller, no more than a full inch.
cole said on 8/Oct/13
Sean says on 4/Oct/13
@cole, take a look at the floor in the pictures and compare it with the line you drew.

Yeah I just noticed that as well... Still I think they would measure similarly, Cooper probably a little bit taller.
Sean said on 4/Oct/13
@cole, take a look at the floor in the pictures and compare it with the line you drew.
cole said on 27/Sep/13
@James: It's hard to be 100% acurate when the picture is a tad unclear, though. But the point was to prove that they appear similar, and at the sime time try to hinder that someone will try to say for example: "Cooper is at least 1.5in taller than Gosling", or something like that. Looking at that picture you're not able to say that one is noticably taller than the other.
James said on 25/Sep/13

Decent picture, although the one on the left you have been way to generous with Cooper in regards to the top of his head under the hair. Tad generous with Gosling with the one on the right.

Anyway it just shows Cooper's footwear as there are many other pictures where he has a solid inch on Gosling. Cooper definetly like's sizeable heels and possible lifts. Gosling's footwear always seems normal to me. Cooper is 182, Gosling is 181. Both decent heights but Cooper greatly exagerates this.
Pierre said on 15/Sep/13
Will Ferrell is a solid 6ft3(191cm) and in the knife guys sketch on Jimmy Kimmel, Ryan looks a solid 6ft1(185cm) when standing next to Will, also when next to Jimmy himself, they're the exact same height 6ft1(185cm)
cole said on 14/Sep/13
From what reasonably clear evidence I've seen, Gosling and Cooper could measure very close. Cooper, when not in strong footwear comes off as a 183 cm guy to me, the same with Gosling (who granted can appear shorter at times) so to list them both at 6ft flat would be something I could agree on. 184 cm as barefoot mid-day/evening height I don't agree with. I imagine they both touch around the 182,2-5+ cm mark in the late evening.
amanda said on 14/Sep/13
Hi Giuseppe. He was wearing sandals but they were only about half an inch in thickness. My boyfriend is 6 foot tall bare foot (no shoes). Hope that helps.
gsbr said on 12/Sep/13

What evidence do you have? An image of Gosling actually on his tiptoes has yet to be posted. Considering how he's leaning into Carell in that picture, he'd have some serious problems standing if he was also tiptoeing.

Besides, it would be counterproductive for Gosling to simultaneously tiptoe and lean into another individual. Whatever height advantage he would get from being on his tiptoes would be lost due to his bad posture.
cole said on 10/Sep/13
This one is shot a bit further away, but I still can't quite see the full 2 inches between Gosling and Cranston: Click Here

From the left: Alberto Brooks, Bryan Cranston, Ryan Gosling, Nicolas Winding Refn.
cole said on 10/Sep/13
What do you think Rob?

Click Here

I can't quite make out their footwear in this one, but they look rather similar in height. Derek Cianfrance (the guy on the mic) is reported to be 5'10, maybe a little bit shorter (does someone have an estimation on him?) and from what I could see, Ryan had about 2 inches or so on him in that brief moment they were next to eachother, and Derek stood straight (which is quite rare really, as he's a sloucher, whilst Ryan nearly allways has impeccable posture).

This proves Gosling is over 182 cm. He's giving Carrel every advantage and he's still taller. Besides, the difference between them is three and a half inches. They're not that far apart in height.

He looks 6'0" in his movies. 5'11" is too low for him. Great actor.
cole said on 5/Sep/13

This is just an example to show that he can look the same height as Paul Schneider (from Parks And Recreation etc), it's not usable to argue their spot on heights, but it can give you a usable range. I have seen some shots of them where Ryan could maybe look 2 cm or so taller. Paul is listed 5'11.5 some places, and 5'11 on other sites. On Parks And Rec he didn't look much over 5'11 next to Nick Offerman, Rob Lowe and Adam Scott to me, maybe 181 cm. So again, I think Ryan is 183 cm max.
James said on 1/Sep/13

He can look that, but have you seen many of his movies? Like Len stated, he tends to look 5ft 11 in most things, Steve Carrel pretty much kills off any chance Gosling has of being over 181cm.
James said on 30/Aug/13
Time for a downgrade Rob? Those pic's with Steve Carrel pretty much seal the deal that he's no more than 5ft 11.5.

The man's lean frame makes him appear taller... check him on the Jimmy Fallon show with loafers on... He looks the same height as Jimmy who IMO is no more than 5'10.5" at max!... Besides his pics with 5'8.5" Steve Carell make it quite obvious as to how tall he really is...

I think Ryan Gosling should be around 5'11" -5'11.25" (180-181cm range)...

cole said on 21/Aug/13
@Editor Rob: Ok. If we think that Carell is 175 cm range, and look at the video I posted at June 30th, where Ryan and Steve is stood infront of a camera, promoting Crazy Stupid Love, Ryan again looks about 183 cm range. But his posture is not that consistent and he's doing a lot of funny movements, so it's harder to tell.

There are however some usable moments in that video that suggests Ryan is around 7 or 8 cm taller. At times Steve may look a wee bit under 5'9. 5'9 flat would be the absolute most I could see him at, and in return, 6' is the most I could see for Ryan Gosling, based on that.

I'll post the video again so you can judge for yourself: Click Here
cole said on 20/Aug/13
@Lando: I'd say about 4 cm, he's bending a bit so the difference might be 5 cm or so if both stood tall. 182-183 cm range is still my guess for Gosling.

Take a look at that Click Here It´s him and vithaya pansringarm from the movie "Only god forgives". Vithaya is 178cm tall. What do you think?
lelman said on 19/Aug/13
I would say 6' is more likely than 5'10". Just a fraction over 5'11", in my opionion. Always looks slightly taller than 5'10-11" guys.

Really though, I could see him being 6 foot up straight in the morning, so Rob's listing seems fair to me. Anywhere from 5'11.25" - 6'.5".
cole said on 18/Aug/13
Click Here

You sure he's not 182-183 cm range, Rob? I mean he does seem to have almost every advantage possible in this particular shot. From the looks of it, he's got bigger footwear, and he's closer to the camera. At least I think he should be take down from the 184 cm mark. 183 cm would be better.
Editor Rob
183 isn't an impossibility, it's the lowest I'd argue though
MaskDeMasque said on 17/Aug/13
5'11, 5'11.5 max. I've seen quite a few Gosling films now and he looks above average but never tall.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 13/Aug/13
Tempest's 5'10.75" estimate for Gosling is spot on. He consistently looks 180cm, next to Cranston, Brooks, Carell, Clooney, Reynolds etc. I think he should at least be downgraded to 5'11.5", and even that is generous. No way this guy is a legit 6'.
Lando said on 12/Aug/13
What about the movie "murder by numbers" with him and Michael Pitt? Pitt is listed as 180cm and seems a fair bit shorter than him. They are barely eye to eye.
Tempest said on 11/Aug/13
I'll say 5'10.75" is Gosling's height. I said 5'10.5" in the past rounding down. He's 5'11" max. I don't understand how he's at 6'.5", let alone the 6'1" he was at. It's been so obvious to me that he's upper 5'10" range just by looking at his body and proportions.
kid said on 11/Aug/13
In Crazy, Stupid, Love, Steve Carell is barefoot and Ryan has shoes on and he only look about an inch to two max taller than Steve.
cole said on 9/Aug/13
@Lando: Is he tipoeing in that last one though? It's kind of har to tell. But Max is a 5'9.5 range guy, and Gosling doesn't look over 6ft next to him. And IF he is in fact tiptoeing in that shot, he's under 6ft for sure.

But I can't see much more than 5-6 cm between Ryan and Max, in that pic anyways. So Ryan looks 182-183 cm range. I would say 6ft is the absolute max for Gosling. I've said it before and I'll say it again; 6'0.5 is at least .5" too generous.

Hello Amanda, I wanted you two questions:
1)When you met Ryan, he was wearing shoes?
2)And finally, your boyfriend is 6 'feet without the shoes?
Amanda said on 28/Jul/13
I met Ryan in 2008 when he was in Ontario. Nice guy, but a little awkward. Anyway, he was just about the same height as my boyfriend, who is 6' (I know my boyfriend is 6' exactly because I watched the doctor measure him). I've also met a few other actors who claim to be taller than they are. People always add inches. I am guessed to be 5'7 ALL the time, but I'm exactly 5'5. Sorry for rambling, anyway this time it was right, he is 6'.

@Chameleon: Guess I've got high standards when it comes to acting. In Crazy Stupid Love he looked 180 cm next to Steve Carell, yes, but in Drive I thought he could pull off 6'-range.
Chameleon said on 21/Jul/13
Cant say, but he was certainly good/very good in all the movies I've seen him in, but yeah just maybe not in Gangster Squad I havent seen that movie. Anyway after Crazy Stupid Love and Drive this guy over 180cm is pushing it.
cole said on 19/Jul/13
@Chameleon: Oh I see, haha! How highly do you rate him as an actor? Think 180-183 cm range is likely, feel like I can't say anything for sure with this guy..
Balrog said on 19/Jul/13
Right, because every guy listed at 6'1'' gotta be 5'11'' at most. Gosling same as Cooper o Tatum are closer to 6'0'' than 5'11''
Chameleon said on 18/Jul/13
cole im not talking about his height I alraedy knew for a long time he is 180cm, I was talking about his acting ability :P
cole said on 17/Jul/13
I've seen many of his movies, and I think he can look anywhere from 5'11 to 6'. In Crazy Stupid Love he looked 5'11 at times. In Gangster Squad next to legit 6'1 flat Sullivan Stapleton, Ryan looked more than just 1 cm shorter. In Lars And The Real girl he looked basically the same height as 5'11.5 Paul Schneider. And I've seen him look about the same height as 6' Billy Zane, and close in height with 6' Cliff Curtis.

This is why I think he could be 5'11.5. But I am not ruling out 5'11 or 6', as that is the range I see him in, no shorter than 5'11 and no taller than 6'.
Chameleon said on 16/Jul/13
cole u should watch his other movies than decide again..
cole said on 15/Jul/13
How about that downgrade Rob? Let's say 6' or 6'0.25 (183 cm) ;)

On a non-height-related issue; did any of you notice his voice in Gangster Squad? I was watching it the other day and it really bugged me. And I also realized that he's not that good of an actor. Don't get me wrong here, he's not bad, but in my opinion, he doesn't really deserve all the hype...
cole said on 13/Jul/13
Okay. So. Will he be lowered to 6ft in the future? Starting slowly by taking off 0.25" from this listing perhaps?

You have to agree that he generally seems a tad shorter than Bradley Cooper, and if he's held at 6'0.5 it would make sense to at least lower Ryan to 6'0.25, eventhough personally I highly doubt he'd measure a millimeter over 183 cm.

Rob, haven't you met Zachary Levi? And thought he looked a good 191 cm? I know these pics are not that good, with Zachary closer to the camera and all, but I thought Ryan looked a bit more than 7 cm shorter than Zachary.
Editor Rob
he can look around 6ft, he is a little further in that first shot though
cole said on 30/Jun/13

It didn't look like Steve Carell fell off a box or anything when Ryan pushed him, so I'm assuming that they are standing on level ground. If Carell is 5'9, I don't think Gosling looks more than 5'11.5. Carell even looks shorter than 5'9 at times, especially next to Ed Helms and Timothy Olyphant on The Office. Ryan can't be 6'0.5.
cole said on 27/Jun/13
@Sam: I feel the same. 182-183 cm is fine for Gosling, and he doesn't quite look like a 180 cm flat. I just think 184 is overdoing it, as he is a fraction shorter than Cooper, whom I doubt is 184 himself. The fact that he also looks within 4-5 cm of 5'10 guys, sometimes even less than that, tell's me that he is not as close to 6'1 as suggested. Around 182 cm is what I think he would measure mid-day, but he'd probably measure 183 cm at some point anyway, so that's a more fair listing (6ft) than 6'0.5.
Chameleon said on 27/Jun/13
Exactly bulgvar, he is 180cm.
Sam said on 26/Jun/13
I feel that Gosling's righat around 183 cm after all the pictures and seeing him next to Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, Jimmy Kimmel, etc. To me 185 cm is too much but 180 cm is cutting a low.
bulgvar said on 24/Jun/13
This guy is nothing more than 180, maybe 181. Look him up in "Crazy, Stupid, Love". There's a scene where him and barefeet Steve Carell stand together. Not to mention Ryan's shoes, which give him a lot of advantage. There's no more than 5 cm between them.
Anthony said on 24/Jun/13
At this point, considering all our doubts, we have to rely on Rob cin one of his photos, can unravel the mystery. Rob, lovely pics for a photo with Ryan
cole said on 22/Jun/13
Rob, I know you are not thinking about downgrading him to 182 cm, as you seem to think he is 183-184 cm, and I am fine with that, as I agree he can look a strong 183 cm at times. But you have also said it before, that you think he can look just 183 cm at times. Personally I am dead set on 182 cm for Gosling, as that is what I think he looks most of the time, at least not taller than 183 cm. You can see it clearly next to confirmed 5'10-11 guys like Fassbender and Clooney for example, that he really isn't that much taller than them. I think it would be more fair, and more accurate if he were to be dongraded to 6ft flat, or at least take away .25" and call it 6ft 0.25in (183 cm). Optimally I would have listed him 5'11.5 or 5'11.75, although I don't think you see him at that height.
Silent d said on 22/Jun/13
I can't see him taller than 182cm. Maybe shorter. I am not convinced next to 175cm steve carrel.

cole said on 19/Jun/13
@Guiseppe: Those pics look quite deceiving, yeah. In reality I think they are pretty close in height, but neither is a genuine 6'0.5 imo. Generally I think Bradley might look marginally taller.. 182,5~183 cm, and 181,5~182 cm for Gosling.

Seeing Gosling with 180 cm tops Fassbender, backstage, with bigger footwear, and still only looking 1-2 cm taller at most just totally excludes this 184 cm listing for me, not believable. Rob, surely you must considerate a slight downgrade? Recent evidence shows he really doesn't look the full 6'0.5.
Arch Stanton said on 19/Jun/13
LOL did you hear about the guy who had $10,000 surgery to look like Gosling? Crazy. Like Robert Pattinson and Channing Tatum, I really don't get what women (and guys) see in him. He's pretty skinny, with a face which reminds me of McCauley Culkin and Nicholas Lindhurst.I guess he looks pretty good overall and has a cool style and air about him, but it amazes me that women would even consider those guys in the same looks league as some of the other guys in Hollywood like Manganiello, Hemsworth brothers etc. The cosmetic surgeon said about "Hollywood facial perfection" being guys like Gisling and Rob Lowe, I can see what he means with Rob Lowe, but Gosling has rather a long nose and eyes too close together, but each unto his own..

cole said on 18/Jun/13
Tempest says on 11/Apr/13
I think it's crazy how some of you really believe that he's 6' or more.

Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper: Click Here

He's 5'10" range. Look how diminutive his body looks next to 6' Cooper. Look at the big heels. Cooper 5'11.5" - 6'. Gosling 5'10" - 5'10.5".

I've seen that one before, and I don't think it's at a good enough angle to claim anything spot on. I for example, had a picture with my 5'11.5 cousin, from a similar angle to that one, I am 5'11 and I looked 2 cm taller than him. A photo from a bad angle can disturb the reality by 4 cm or more at times, it really doens't take much more than a slight change of angle to make someone shorter appear taller than someone who is actually a good bit taller.

And even from that same set of pictures you can find examples where Gosling actually looks taller than Cooper, but I don't think that's the case, they look very close in height as Rob also seem to think. But what I cannot really believe is that they are both close to 184-185 cm, they both look shorter than that too often imo, next to for example 6'2 Dax Shepard and 6'2 Will Ferrell. I'd imagine Bradley would measure about 182,5 cm at some point of the day, and Gosling possibly 181,5 or close to 182 cm flat.

Check my latest post with behind the scenes photos of Gosling and Fassbender, and see that there's clearly not 4 cm between the two, if anything they could look the same height when Gosling as slightly bigger footwear.

Here's a couple of pics that show them closer in height, but of course you can't be entirely sure of footwear-advantages etc.:

Footwear: Click Here and Click Here
They are both wearing some kind of boots it seems, Gosling's has a more suspicious look though.
Giuseppe said on 18/Jun/13
Hello Cole. Thank you for publishing photos. Obviously I agree with you. Fassbender and 'top 180 and in photographs wearing flat shoes.
In fact, without taking into account the heels of Gosling, the difference can not be 4 cm. Also, if Ryan really was 184 cm, it would explain the difference there is with Bradley Cooper (185). Check if you want and let me know.

Can't quite see the 4 cm difference in these photos...
Fassbender is no taller than 180 cm. Gosling might be dropping a bit of posture in some of these photos, dropping down to Fassbender's level. But Fassbender also has a footwear-disadvantage in some of them, so it's kind of hard to tell. Gosling could maybe be 2 cm taller from what I see, definitely not 4.
Giuseppe said on 14/Jun/13
Apart from the photo with Steve Carrel. I do not understand why no one takes into consideration the photos that show Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper (185cm). You notice so clear in fact that between Bradley (185cm) and Ryan (184cm??) The difference is not 1cm but much more. Also check yourself and let me know.
Giuseppe said on 14/Jun/13
You're right Chrissss the photos that show Ryan with Steve Carrel (175cm), show that there is no difference between the two 9cm.
cole said on 9/Jun/13
Seen a few sites giving 182,88 cm as well, I think he would measure around that mark early in the day.
Frank said on 8/Jun/13
Looking several pics and with my experience i would tell that Gosling probably is 182-183 cms
chrissss said on 8/Jun/13
Ryan gosling is not 6'1, u can tell, steve carrel is almost his height and he never appears that tall ,id say he's 5'11(180-181) maximum just 6ft(182) but id say he's 181cm for sure
cole said on 6/Jun/13
In gangster squad he looks reasonably close to Robert Patrick, 2 maybe 3 cm taller at most. Patrick I'd peg at 179 cm, so 181-182 for Gosling.
Jax said on 26/May/13
at first I thought he was a legit 6feet flat man, but in crazy stupid love there was a scene where he stood next to weak 5'6 emma stone (she was in barefeet) and he didnt look 6ft at all....Id say 181-182cm is spot on,... about the same height as bradley cooper
Balrog said on 18/May/13
Dude's 6 feet tall or close to it. Not buying under 182 for him.

In the meantime, he's still taller than the 182 cm David Strathairn.

Some people on here estimate him at 5'10" flat but I think that might be pushing it a bit. I'd guess him between 5'10.5" (179cm) and 5'11.5" (182cm). But he does tiptoe a lot.
Chameleon said on 13/May/13
He's 180cm
gsbr said on 13/May/13
Nobody here is claiming he's 6'1" or 6'2". This listing is actually lower than his "official" height of 6'1" and people still argue it's too high.

I couldn't find any good images of Gosling and Carell together, though I did find one where Gosling is leaning into Carell and he's still clearly taller.

Click Here

And maybe the angle isn't the best, but he sure looks taller than Christian Bale here.

Luther6ft said on 13/May/13
He often looks about 184-185 cm I'll give him that, but he's not that tall barefoot. Gosling was shorter than 184 cm Kellan Lutz, he looked at most 182-183 cm with 188 cm Dax Sheppard, and he's taller than Gosling. 180-182 cm range for Gosling, he looks it with 187-188 cm Ryan Ryenolds and Will Ferrell as well. But of corse it would mean downgrading a host of other actors as well, and obviously that's not going to happen.
John said on 12/May/13
Gosling often looks taller due to his slim build and long limbs, but the truth is he's about 5'11. Which isn't short anyway - that's still slightly above average and nothing to be ashamed of - but there's no way in hell he's the 6'1 or 6'2 some people here are claiming. Look at him in Place Beyond the Pines on his motorbike (easier to see the overall dimensions there), or look at him compared to Steve Carell in Crazy Stupid Love: even with lifts, 5'8 Carell should appear a few inches shorter than Gosling if he's really over six feet tall, but they're barely two inches apart. I would say 5 '11 to 6' flat is a good guesstimate - same for Cooper.
penguinboy25 said on 12/May/13
I agree with many of the listings on this site but this isn't one of them. I don't even think Cooper is 184. In my opinion Gosling is on the low side of 5'11. I think Cooper is about 6'0 flat.
gsbr said on 9/May/13
Gosling's feet are on the ground. The "tiptoeing" argument people keep using is ridiculous. And anyways, if he was trying to get an edge on the other actors, he wouldn't be leaning forward. That'll cost you an inch.
John said on 7/May/13
Cooper and Gosling are the same height, both around 6 feet. Cooper might seem taller sometimes because of his bodybuilt; though both of them seem to be in a really good shape, Gosling is way thinner than Cooper. That's why Cooper looks taller sometimes. But both of them are basically the same height.
A Jeffrey said on 7/May/13
You're right Tempest, I was more indicating that Perlman, alongside 5'10 Brooks and Cranston (highly probable 5'9), is wrongly listed at 6'0 and that he's more 5'11. Gosling is a 5'10 guy in my eyes, he's tiptoeing for that extra inch.
tmx said on 7/May/13
Conclusive photo in my opinion. Cranston and Brooks are definitely around 5'10 or below, no more. And Perlman around 5'11, no less. Gosling within the 5'10-5'10.5 range, as seen below tiptoeing to get the edge on 5'10 guys. Standing on his own he can look 5'11/6' because of his features, but full-length body photos with other celebs expose him very often
gsbr said on 7/May/13
I love everyone says Gosling is tiptoeing (which I sure don't see in that photo) while nobody mentions Brooks is straining his posture.

Besides, that photo is at an angle. Here's Gosling and Perlman both looking straight at the camera and Gosling is taller.

Gosling is taller than Kimmel and they have the same footwear on.

If anything, Gosling has the proportions of someone over six feet. He possesses a long, tall (as some would call it) face you'd expect an imposing figure to have.

Jimmy Kimmel is 180 max and so is Ryan..

Gosling will never be downgraded because he is 184 cm. In the photo with Cooper, he's slouching and leaning to his left. Here's another full body shot of Gosling and Cooper- they're practically the same height:

Guy said on 16/Apr/13
This guy is one fascinating height specimen. In every photo he seems to look a slightly different height. He doesn't have the proportions of someone 6' or above and in the photos where he looks that tall his proportions are off I.e. his shins look weirdly long.

I would bet my bottom $10 that he's a frequent lift wearer and we just haven't caught it yet. He really looks 5'11 to me and with lifts makes him hover close to 6'1, just like Brad Pitt.
Robert said on 15/Apr/13
Thanks for posting the photo that shows next to Ryan Bradley. I agree with Tempest, Ryan can not be 185cm

Rob, who do you think is taller: Ryan Gosling or Bradley Cooper??
Editor Rob
cooper can give the taller impression at times, but I think they are very close.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 13/Apr/13
Tempest is right, I wouldn't rule out 5'10" range for Gosling. The pictures where Gosling is the same height as Cooper don't show their full body, so Gosling might be tiptoeing like he often does. In the full body shots he is clearly shorter than Cooper.

In addition he looked only a fraction taller than 5'10" guys Bryan Cranston and Albert Brooks. The evidence is clear, downgrade is needed.

182cm MAX, probably 180cm flat, maybe even 179cm.

Look at pictures there are no height diffrence similiar footwear and same postures all of them. Evidence blows all youre speculations out of the way. Time for a downgrade.

After the recent film, I saw some pictures of Ryan Gosling alongside Bradley Cooper (1.85) and I think that Ryan is much lower. Someone could post some pictures that portrays them together? thanks
Nate said on 5/Apr/13
Gosling is a tall man. Met the guy just 1 month ago at Miami International Airport and had the same judgement that many people do on this page. I believed he was no taller than 6'. I thought I was 5'11.5-.75 and man he had like 1.5 inch on me at least. My immediate thought was that he was 6'1 but then i got measured on a stadiometer and I ended up 5'11.25...My input? the guy is no less than 6'05.
Anonym said on 3/Apr/13

I don't know. 184 is pushing it. Does this guy ever walk or do anything without wearing boots?
Tempest said on 20/Mar/13
Yeah, looks 5'10.5" with Will Ferrell. Rob's either not changing some of these heights to spite the more observant height guessers, or he's getting paid to make actors "taller". Just my opinion - take it or leave it.
gsbr said on 19/Mar/13
The amount of downgrading this guy gets is ridiculous. He's taller than Ron Perlman, who's listed as 6' here. He's taller than the 5'11.5" David Strathairn and the 6' Cliff Curtis in Fracture. Will Ferrel is closer to 6'3" than 6'2". This listing is spot on.

Hew said on 8/Feb/13
I agree he can look 6ft at times. But with guys like Anthony Mackie, George Clooney, Steve Carell and Bryan Cranston, even you who redicule a 5'11ish listing have to agree; he doesn't look 6'0.5 with those guys. He's 5'11 at least and 6ft at most, either way, 6'0.5 is just too much.

The pics with Cranston are good, and with other 5'10ish people proving he's no more than 2-3 cm taller than most of them. 182 cm is the most I could see Gosling at. And Silent d: Brolin is absolutely 100% not 178 cm, more like 175.

After seeing Ferrell with Federer, Craig Robinson, John C. Reilly and others he strikes me as a 6'1.5/75-guy at most. He certainly wasn't 6 cm taller than Federer, more like 2 cm max. Ryan looks 5'11-range if 6'1.5/75 is correct for Will. But if Will really is 6'3 (hihgly doubtful imo), Ryan is around 6'0.5 as listed.

I agree a downgrade to 182cm for Gosling would be fair. I still think 180 flat is the most likely height for him, but I wouldn't argue if he were to be downgraded to 182. In my opinion the 179-182cm range covers this guy, he's somewhere in that range.

Gosling looks clearly taller than Franco next to Felton.

Btw, Felton seems Gosling's younger brother.
Hew said on 10/Jan/13
Gosling looks with Felton, more or less like James Franco looks with Felton. Again I can't see him at 184 cm, 182 cm is not impossible. At least he should be downgraded to 5'11.75.

He was on Kimmel and looked the same height as him. Kimmel´s listed at 182 cm here.

Doesn't look any taller than 6ft 0.5in, imo.

I've seen him edge out 180 guys but not by an inch. Maybe 182-183 at most in my opinion. Idk
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 8/Jan/13
Chameleon is right, Gosling looks 180cm flat next to Carell, Cranston, Brooks, Reynolds etc. I could live with a 182cm listing for him, weak 6', but anything over that is pure upgrading.
Trey said on 8/Jan/13
There's an early picture where he look even, give or take 1 cm, in height with Billy Zane. Can't see their footwear though. Maybe he's 182-183 cm after all. At least 184 cm I can't see.
Trey said on 7/Jan/13
I agree with Chameleon. Looks 180 cm a lot. Can argue from 180-183 cm. 184 is too high anyways imo.

This time i gotta agree with Rob, i saw some photos and he look 6' range a lot. Maybe 6'0.5 is a bit too much, but he generally doesnt look under 6'.
Balrog said on 7/Jan/13
I agree with editor Rob.
Chameleon said on 7/Jan/13
but Rob we cant see the floor/footwear. In that pic he does look 6' range.. but in all the other shots posted even the full body ones he appears like a legit 180 guy all the time, as he does in every scene in the movie crazy stupid love which exposes him even more. Nor did he look 6' with Reynolds.
Chameleon said on 7/Jan/13
Sorry Balrog, but he has 2 inches at best on Carell. And it has nothing to do with confusing angles in their shots together.
Editor Rob
remember there was a shot were he was with tom felton. You can certainly argue he doesn't appear over 6 foot, but as low as a 5ft 11 guy i'm not convinced of.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 6/Jan/13
180cm on the dot.
Balrog said on 6/Jan/13
Sorry Chameleon, Gosling has 3in over Carell, camera angles can confuse at times. Still think he's 182-183.
Chameleon said on 5/Jan/13
Gosling had no more than 2'on Carell without his dress shoes.. He is 5'11
Balrog said on 4/Jan/13
Gosling had 3in over Carrell, I can't see Ryan under 5'11.5''

He is likely a bit over 6'0". He IS tall and had inches on Albert Brooks in Drive. Albert Brooks, although appearing to have a short build, is average height.
Sam said on 31/Dec/12
Rob is correct. Gosling and Bradley Cooper appear to be around the same height:

Not buying 5'11'' flat for him, looks taller than this in pics, around 6'0'' like Bradley Cooper and I'll bet Ryan is a smidge taller than him because Cooper most of the time is holding good posture.

Think what you want, but roughly 5'11 fits for both of them when you look at the evidence. In my mind Ed Helms is pretty pinned down at 5'11.25 (might be 5'11.5 with his best posture), looked it with Kurtwood, Riley and others, Cooper was the same height or shorter when barefoot. He also looks no taller than 6ft with Kellan Lutz, and shorter than 6ft with Dax Shepard.

Gosling with Steve Carell, George Clooney, Bryan Cranston and Evan Rachel Wood proves 6'0.5 is very, very generous, unless (and this is so unlikely I have no idea why I'm even mentioning it) everyone around him is wearing lifts... 5'11

Both Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper seems to be very keen on appearing taller than they really are by every means necessary, making it almost impossible to pin down an accurate height for either one.

But for now I am going with 180 cm for Ryan Gosling, because he looks it with 5'8/9-guys like Carell and 5'10-guys like Bryan Cranston and George Clooney. I'm tempted to go for 180 cm for Cooper to as he actually looked shorter than Ed Helms at one point in Hangover 2(see the scene from when they are barefoot in the monastery. 181 cm for Helms - looks it with every co-star in Cedar Rapids and The Office). The only time Cooper edges Helms is when Helms walks around in flat shoes like vans, and Cooper has on a pair of boots or other types of heeled shoes. Other than that they look dead on even, if not Helms looking the marginally taller guy. It's just something to be on the lookout for when watching Hangover 2: Cooper in boots, Helms in vans and the barefoot scenes.

I agree Trey a solid 5'11" no more
Trey said on 27/Dec/12
There's SO many horrible pics out there of Gosling, being used to argue his real height. The tiptoeing and boots suggest he has a bit of a height complex, for some reason. He's probably 5'11, but with his lean frame, and with the right footwear, he pulls off 6'0.5. I don't trust any listing until I see JUST ONE solid pic of him, as a whole, looking around 6'1. As for now, the only pics of that nature are the ones making him look around 5'11, which in return is what I'm currently estimating him at.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 26/Dec/12
Rob, after seeing those pictures of Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper next to each other, surely you have to admit their listings don't make sense anymore? This site lists both Gosling and Cooper at 184, yet Gosling was shorter than Cooper. At least one of these two listings is wrong. Personally I think both listings are wrong, they're both shorter than 184cm. I could buy Gosling at 180cm and Cooper at 182cm.
Editor Rob
you can find a taller one...

the ones with cooper taller than gosling have camera distortion aswell.
Trey said on 26/Dec/12
Rob I more or less always agree with your listings, but this one you've got wrong. I just don't know what has gotten you to belive he's this close to 6'1. With Carell, with Cranston, with Cooper, with Clooney and with Gyllenhaal he looks nothing over 180-181 cm.
Chameleon said on 20/Dec/12
No way hes over 180cm!!
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 19/Dec/12
From what I've seen of him, he is 180cm at best.
klem said on 17/Dec/12
It's really hard to tell with 5-11 to 6-1 guys. I was recently taken a few picture at high-school anniversary. On a few pictures I look almost 2 inches taller than my friend who is very close to my height , I can't really tell if he is 1 cm shorter or we are the same. I also look as tall as my 6-1 friend, whom I personally measured at 6-1 in the afternoon.
Than on another picture first friend (who is probably same height as me or shorter) looks 0.5 inch taller as I am bit hunched forward, but not that significantly. So it is really hard to tell.
I am also wearing pretty solid 1 inch shoes while friends could only be wearing 0.75 inch.
What I am saying is you can't really judge height by pictures, a little looser posture can make you look as much 2 inches shorter and it is not even that obvious.
MaskDeMasque said on 16/Dec/12

5'11 guys can easily look 6' in films though with all the fancy angles. Look at pics with Ryan next to Steve Carrel, there is no more than a 2 inch difference and Carrel is def not taller than 5'9.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 9/Dec/12
If Ryan Gosling saw Jake's " 6' flat at worst " comments I'm sure the 180cm at best actor would chortle.
MaskDeMasque said on 8/Dec/12

Why are you so convinced that Ryan is 6'?
balrog said on 3/Dec/12
Between 5'11'' and 6'0''.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 2/Dec/12
LOL @ Jake, 6' flat at worst? That makes Steve Carell 5'10" at worst and Bradley Cooper 6'1.5" at worst. Yeah right.
Chameleon said on 2/Dec/12
Nonsens, he is 180cm at best.

Good lord, he is 180cm thats IT now enough of this 6+ garbage

Hé is nothing under 6'0.25 after 6 weeks without sleep and a broken vertebra hé might not be 6'1 but 6'0.5 yes 6'0.25-6'0.75 zone

Just look at any photo of him, he is clearly not 6 foot.
