There's a video on YouTube of Ryan breaking up a fight in NYC, and I was surprised at how solidly tall he looked among a bunch of other guys.
On-screen, Ryan looks like the shortest 6ft guy I've seen.
Tarinator said on 3/Sep/19
I would say he is the same height as me. Although I would probably be marginally shorter than him. He looks a solid 6’0.5” but a little shorter than John Cena who is 6’0.75” and shorter than Dr. Oz’s peak height which is probably at 6’0.75-1”.
TheBat said on 31/Jul/19
I think 6'0" would be the lowest I go with for Ryan. His 6'0.25" listing here is spot on.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 29/Jul/19
I think flat 183cm a low is right than saying over it is his low of the day.

legit 6 footer. can look all the way from 182 - 184,5 depending on movie. i think a tiny fraction over 6 foot i right
TheBat said on 30/Jun/19
It's rare but it happens, I grew from 5'10.25" to 5'10.5" at age 20. Currently I consistently get measured at 5'10.5" in the afternoon.
Gaspergoo said on 18/Jun/19
Comes across a solid 6ft.....doesn't look small or short on screen
CDS said on 7/Jun/19
@junior Hernandez: I agree it is rare to grow that much after 19, but I'm saying that Ryan has been a VERY consistent lift wearer since, to give his 5'11" actual frame the appearance of a solid 6' to 6'1" guy. See the poster's comments below who met him in person, how he was actually 5'11", and had brown eyes, not the blue eyes he's maintained ever since. And I should point out, as for when "remember the titans" was filmed, blu ray didn't come around for almost a decade, and DVD had just come out right around that time.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Jun/19
@CDS It's rare to have a 19years old plus guy growing 3cm taller, isn't it? I doubted 6'0.25" and at most he can be 6'0 and maybe he didn't grow that much its just about 2cm but is still lucky to hit that jackpot after 20.
CDS said on 24/May/19
@junior Hernandez: I doubt the 2000 film, remember the titans , was filmed that far back. Denzel had a pretty full plate the latter end of the 90s, was probably filmed sometime in 1999 or early 2000, since the film was released in the fall of that year. Also, see the film, "the believer", which was made close to that same time, and you'll see gosling looking a good 2" shorter than 6'1" Garrett dillahunt. Ryan is a grown man, in this film, no doubt...
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/May/19
@CDS Remember The Titans was release in 2000 and Ryan turns 20 so he shouldn't have grown since then. But there is a problem with some movie production delayed and would turn out releasing out to theatre or vhs/dvd/blueray a few years later. To me i suspect that movie was filmed in 1997 because Ryan look very young like he was only 17 and he does look near 2" shorter than 6'0.75" Ethan Suplee there and great chances Ryan had grown a bit over 1" and stop at 6'0. I'm not so sure if he look 6'0.25" as listed. I always sees him a flat 6'0 guy since before he was famous.
CDS said on 17/Apr/19
@the Bat: he easily looks the full 6' and some change now, but I'm talking about in the films, the believer, and, remember the titans, made close to one another. Watch and see for yourself, how he looks a good 2-3 inches shorter than 6'1" Ethan suplee, for instance. The question is, was gosling, at 18 or 19, whatever he was at the time, fully grown? He looked completely mature to me in those films. Another poster on here also mentioned something interesting, how when they met him in person, he was 5'11", AND had brown eyes, not the blue eyes, with the contacts, he's maintained since becoming a big star.
TheBat said on 16/Apr/19
Same here. Though CDS has a bad judgement of height if he thinks Ryan is under 6'0".
Kevin said on 26/Mar/19
CDS I would be shocked if he was only 5'10.
CDS said on 14/Mar/19
Was watching the 2000 or 2001 film, the believer, again last night. Gosling looks no more than 5'10" or 5'11" max. So either he's grown since then, or he's been a consistent lift wearer since. My money would be on the latter...
Josh Jeffords said on 28/Feb/19
Nah he is 6 ft in shoes no more he often looks pretty average even being thin.
He had army boots in blade runner still dwarfed by big dave 62.5 .75.
Spencer said on 19/Jan/19
Looks 5'11.75" to me. A hair under 6.
Michael 5'10", 178 cm said on 9/Jan/19
Ryan always looks like a textbook 6'0" guy in his films. He had 6-7 inches on Emma Stone and looked 6 feet tall in the Big Short. He is 6'0" or a bit over.
GRIT said on 5/Jan/19
Ryan is a very strong 6 ft
viper said on 2/Jan/19
He looked 5-11 being interviewed by 6-4 Michael Strahan.
Yang (5ft 8 Chinese men) said on 31/Dec/18
I strongly disagree with anonymous saying he is 5footer 11. He is definitely NOTHING LESS THAN 6footer based on the picture with Harrison Ford. Of course, Harrison Fords peak height is around the one listed for gosling b4 he lost lots of height as he aged.... Like many said, Harrison Ford is 5ft 11 nowadays and clearly shorter than Goslin based on 2017 Graham Norton show when both promoting their new film together BLADE RUNNER 2049..
BT said on 16/Nov/18
@Editor Rob: I know it's only a small fraction, but would you consider a 6'0 1/8 listing, or do you still feel 6'0 1/4 is the best shout for Ryan? I think that although he can look just 6ft flat at times, I still feel he would be closer to 6'0 1/4 when measured, but perhaps falls just a tiny bit under that mark at his low.
berta said on 3/Nov/18
DOnt believe he is taller than peak NIck Nolte. 6 foot 1/8
Gosfan said on 3/Oct/18
Ryan is a great actor but I'm thinking he's a full inch shorter at 5'11 1/4".
Pierre said on 19/Sep/18
I see him around 5"11'range and i think he wears advantageous shoes in events,around 5"11' barefoot around 6"1' in advantageous shoes
Zampo said on 16/Sep/18
The photos and pictures I've seen of him, he tends to look mostly between the 5'11.75-6'0.25 range. The impression I get from him is that he may be a flat 6'0 or maybe something similar to the average guess (solid 6'0). Anywhere between 182.5-183.5 cm is where he could measure.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 15/Sep/18
Even if he was the type to wear lifts, he wouldn't have been as short as 5'9". If you wear 3" liffs, it would be too obvious.
Tall Sam said on 14/Sep/18
The listing is a good fit, he looks to marginally edge Christian Bale and be edged by Bradley Cooper.
Jtm said on 13/Sep/18
i agree 6'0-6'1 is too high but i can't see 5'9 at all and he doesn't strike me as a lift wearer.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Sep/18
Looks like a guy who can safely clear 6ft when standing straight. Edged out Ron Perlman in Drive and had aboutv2in Bryan Cranston.
Out of bed: 6ft1⅛(185.7cm)

mickeyz said on 11/Sep/18
hahaha 12 cm lifts. good one butcher!
Kevin said on 9/Sep/18
lmfao...he would look like a manlet walking on stilts if that was true. I assume you are trolling. 5'11.5" is probably the absolute lowest you can argue for this guy.
Da Butcherr said on 6/Sep/18
Sorry for a mistake I made, I meant 12cm, 14cm, 15cm elevator shoes, not inches. My bad.
Da Butcherr said on 6/Sep/18
I think this guy real height is 175CM barefoot max. Possiblely 174CM.
He wears huge lift shoes, 12 inches minimum, have a look the Don’s elevator shoes advertised on this website, there are 14 inches, 15 inches elevator shoes existing in our world now.
Please open your eyes and minds. Look closely and carefully at the celebrities shoes, so many elevator shoes now.
I was the first person ever said that the Rock is 189cm barefoot max.
Mighty joe young said on 16/Aug/18
He doesnt strike me as a 6 1/4, but im giving him the purely based on bad camera angles against him(srsly look it up)
said on 2/Aug/18
Rob, the difference between Gosling and Ford looks more than just 1.25 inches. Please look at these photos: Click Here
Rob, which is more likely 6'0.5" for Gosling or 5'10.75" today for Ford?
carnificinas said on 9/Jun/18
he looked about half an inch (or three quarters) taller than jimmy kimmel in his show yesterday.

Gosling didn't look 6ft with Russell Crowe the way Henry Cavill did [with Crowe]. I'm really torn on Ryan.

He looked 5-11 max being interviewed by 6-4 Michael Strahan
strahan also made russell crowe look 5'9ish. i guess crowe forgot his lifts.
said on 21/Apr/18
@Editor Rob I think this listing is fine. He might not have been quoted claiming a certain height, but Emma Stone did describe him as "about 6 feet" on Graham Norton. So I guess that sorta helps?
At the 1:49 mark:

Gosling isn't over 5'11"

gosling 183-183,5 ford 178,5-179 today
Jafars said on 27/Mar/18
In The Nice Guys movie, Gosling's character was listed at 6' on a sheet of paper listing his physical traits. That was the first confirmation I got tbh. Actors usually give their heights to directors or prop guys (sometimes can be self-claimed rather than measured which is annoying) when they need it for a scene like getting a mugshot or whatever. I don't think Gosling would have lied if he didn't physically get measured before that scene.
said on 23/Mar/18
Has he ever claimed a height?
I've not heard it
said on 19/Mar/18
Rob, where would you say he wakes up? 185 or 186?
Maybe between the 2 marks.
Ivan said on 13/Mar/18
A smidge over 6'.
Bobby said on 27/Feb/18
@sumdude, height loss at 30s? What have you been smoking?
said on 20/Feb/18
Rob he legitimately wears lifted shoes, you sure it doesn't need an update?
I've never seen evidence to say his shoes have lifts.
Taller than Average said on 19/Jan/18
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) numbers are correct, as the data is collected from medical providers. Average height is an indication of public health. Sub-6'0" men in the United States routinely inflate their height by at least an inch.
Animus said on 18/Jan/18
Gosling can certainly look like a strong 184cm guy, even creeping into 185cm territory. He can also look closer to 6'0 flat, but there is basically no chance he is actually that short, just like there is basically no chance he is a weak 185cm. He is an ectomorph, so he has long arms and a pronounced linear body shape. In actuality 6'0¼ is probably the best listing.
even said on 15/Jan/18
6'0" at night
said on 9/Jan/18
The average U.S. male height is 5'9.2" as stated by the Center For Disease Control.
If, indeed, those statistics are compiled from height data given voluntarily and not verified by actually measuring anyone, say from data given on passport or ID applications, than those statistics would reflect the trend of men exaggerating their height.
As for Gosling, if Russel Crowe is his listed 5'10.5" then something closer to 6'1" may be possible for Gosling. I'm voting 6'0.5".
Mike said on 31/Dec/17
Average height for young white men in US is 5ft 10-10.5.
183.4 cm said on 28/Dec/17
Btw imo the average height in the us (im from the us) is 5ft9 at max. Because people inflate their height 99% of the time, the studys wont be accurate. Even one of my frienda who is shorter than me claims 6ft1.
Anonymous said on 17/Dec/17
that photo with harrison makes gosling look almost 6ft1... i really can't consider him to be below the 6 with all i've seen...
MAD SAM said on 15/Dec/17
He always gives an impression of 6’1” though I think he’s around 184 cm
berta said on 15/Dec/17
he looks legit 184 with ford because ford is probably not a mm over 179 these days. this guy is maybe 183,3 ish and ford 178,8 range
6footTom said on 11/Dec/17
@James Ryan looks taller in that video, and he's easily taller than Russell in the movie as well.
Animus said on 10/Dec/17
He looks two inches taller than the poorly postured Harrison Ford. It's clear that Ford had a disproportionately long torso as a young man and his spine has shortened considerably over the years. Now, with his poor posture, he can look as short as 5'10½.
said on 10/Dec/17
This guy looks a legit 184 next to ford here: Click Here
Jtm said on 9/Dec/17
Crowe is not 5'11 and I don't think he's the 5'10.5 listed here. There wouldn't be so much talk about his height if he was a legit 5'11 but he's probably wearing lifts in that video. I still think gosling is closer to 5'11.
said on 6/Dec/17
This seems off too me. Check this video with Ryan next to Russell Crowe:
If Russell Crowe is 5ft11 or 179 cm as listed then Ryan would be no more than 182cm or 6ft. Russell looks as tall if not taller than Ryan.
sumdude said on 4/Dec/17
I think 183.5cm is perfect, seems about 3-4cm taller than Harrison Ford by looking at the Blade Runner 2049 carpet photos. And yes, height loss starts at 30, read the article by Rob on this website. Will most likely dip below the 6ft mark in his mid-late 50s.
kurtz said on 22/Nov/17
Great work in blade runner 2049.
Liam said on 21/Nov/17
I agree with 183.5 but no more
Luker said on 19/Nov/17
Gosling and Ed Helms are the worst examples of 6 fters. I can't blame their genetics but yeah, their narrow frames and sometimes clothing options do not represent the height well. Chris Pine and Karl Urban wear it much better, heck even Chris Evans and he's not the full 6.
Sam said on 15/Nov/17
Way too young for height loss unless he had some spine crushing injury no one knows about.
Frost said on 14/Nov/17
@Kevin, You really think he's losing height at 37 years of age?
Monkey knees said on 14/Nov/17
6 ft dead. Worked a premiere in London and he was there. Wearing obvious lifts and was same height as me (6,1.5) when shown to seat. 6 foot dead on.

6'0 peak, 5'11.75 today
randomuser said on 2/Nov/17
@James you can't just generalize all white Americans like that. It's usually the English/German Americans who are the tall ones at 5'11. Yet Italian Americans are usually only around 5'8.

Anonymous said on 26/Oct/17
i didn't know such shoes existed. I don't really believe he could fit the lifts in the picture where he's laughing. though in the one with the sunglasses i could conceive it, the way he's raising the back foot is kinda suspicious. big angle... though would he really go for such lifts? doesn't strike me as that kind of guy. though you never know.
Pierre said on 25/Oct/17
Anonymous=the lifts are over the external heels,under the heel of the foot, not under the toes;there is a comfortable place from the middle to the rear portion of the shoes by the vertical angle of the laces.Then the feet take a vertical angle(a little like in women shoes).
Anonymous said on 24/Oct/17
Pierre. I don't think he would be able to squeeze his feet in that shoe if that was the case. If you were right then ryan would have very skinny feet and it would probably hurt like hell to wear such thing.
I'm no shoe expert but i've never seen dress shoes with that type of height enchancing technique... seems a bit too crazy.

He look same heigh as me (5'11.25)
Maybe it's cuz I wears skinny jeans..
btw I see him 6' max!
More like 5'11.25 - 5'11.5 ;-)
Maybe shorter :/
Pierre said on 21/Oct/17
@Anonymous=look at the angle of his feet in the first picture (angle of the laces) , try to guess where are his ankles in the picture two= they are over his shoes logically in this type of shoes imo
Anonymous said on 20/Oct/17
Pierre... those are pretty standard dress shoes.
Slim 6' said on 19/Oct/17
Let's establish the fact that he's closer to 6'0" than 6'1". But where between 6'0" and 6'0.5" we don't know where he falls precisely as to why we've pegged him inbetween 6' and 6'0.5"

Ryan 183-184 cm barefoot.
Harrison 179-180cm barefoot nowadays.

If Harrison Ford is 5'11 nowadays Ryan is a strong 6 feet nearly 6'1. Not less

5' 11" barefoot. Vintage looking dude. Nice guy. Met him twice, once at Vanity Fair Oscars party. He was not yet wearing his custom, hand-painted blue grey contact lenses then. Distinctly, remember his medium brown puppy-dog eyes as they were in The Notebook. His P.R. team will spin it all day but RG's eyes are definitely brown. He is 6' in shoes, though.

Was watching the classic, "Remember the Titans" again last night, and noticed a 19-year old Gosling looking a good 2, maybe even 3 inches shorter than co-star, Ethan Suplee, who I'm guessing has gotta be from 6' to 6'1"? That would've made Gosling only about 5'10" or 5'11" absolute max at the time. Could he have grown any more since age 19? I would peg him in his movies today at about 6 feet flat, but again those early movies like RTT and "The Believer" he could be as low as 5'10"?

Simon said on 13/Aug/17
Lived in the same building as him for a while. About my height, give or take 0.25". Probably about 6'0.5".
Tom said on 9/Aug/17
@Lynx 6ft is above average in the US but definitely not "incredibly tall" and this is coming from a guy who is a weak 6ft himself. Also the average German male is about 5'11" not 5'9" flat. Trust me, I went to an airport where there was a large group of German travelers, and about 1/3 of those men were taller than me.
Lynx said on 30/Jul/17
@James Just on the internet 5'9 is being a midget but 6ft is incredibly tall, im 5'10 and sometimes i look taller than some 6ft people, sometimes i look equal to 5'9 people, 2 inches in real life is almost nothing, depending on footwear, sleep time, posture, it means nothing, but on the internet 2 inches is the difference between being a smurf or being a titan.
Btw, in Germany avg. male height is flat 5'9, on England, flat 5'9, in USA 5'9 and a half, Spain 5'8, Portugal 5'7, France, 5'9, i dont think 80% of english speakers on the internet are from the Alps or Netherlands to say 5'8 is short, and just 1 inch below average isn't exactly ''short'', then 5'10 should be ''tall'' and for most internet people thats still short.

lol said on 29/Jun/17
A solid 184 next to Gyllenhaal's 180cm.
i'd feel the average height of Europe is grouped by regions. Eastern Europe seems to be 178cm. Scandinavia must be 181/182. The Balkans it's like 184cm. The Mediterranean nations is like 175. Germany/Netherlands/Belgium is 183/84.
said on 28/Jun/17
Here you can see 6 ft listed Gareth Bale (he could be a bit over 6 ft but definetely not 6' 1"), next to 5' 8" Neymar. Bale looks tall to me and Neymar short. Of course Neymar is only slightly short if we compare him with others who are shorter.
5' 8" Griezzman also can also be considered short next to tall guys like Bale and Cristiano:
Again, this is only my subjective opinion.
said on 28/Jun/17
Average height in Europe is 177.6 (not a full 5' 10", but can be rounded up to that mark):

Even with his large head and narrow shoulders, he still manages to look a strong 6 foot. Easily between 6ft 0.25 or 6ft 0.5.
growtallerguru said on 26/Apr/17
he looks about an inch taller than Gyllenhaal, and i think Jake is 5'11" - 5'11.5". so Ryan is definitely 6'0.25" - 6'0.5"

He is taller than 6ft flat, i'd bet my bank account on 6'0.25-6'0.5, absolutely nothing under that. solid 184cm guy
Kaneff 6'0.25 said on 20/Apr/17
He's a legit 6 feet, no more,. A proper 6'0.5" guy looks tall and Ryan only looks tallish/above average at best in everything I see him in. I doubt he would edge out somebody like Big Alex.

The downgrade wasn't necessary at all, 6'0.5 is what he is, he looks 6ft range all the time

He stands really, really well next to Affleck and Reynolds. Is there any chance he just hits 185? There isn't much difference between those guys as long as Gosling straightens up.
HonestSlovene said on 5/Apr/17
I think he can look mostly around 6'0", no more no less. Sometimes over, sometimes under.
anon said on 3/Apr/17
probably would measure anywhere in that 6'0- 6'0.5 range looks a solid 183-184cm, I cant see him being under 6'0 from what I have seen on him in all honesty
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 2/Apr/17
Looks a solid 6ft/6ft 0.5in guy. Somewhere in the 183-184 cm range.
Alex said on 26/Mar/17
Hey Rob who do you think is taller; Ryan Gosling or Hayden Christensen?
Alex said on 24/Mar/17
He is definetely taller than 6 ft.
jtm said on 23/Mar/17
More like 5'11.25. He's shorter than Keith David.

Hi Rob, can you add The Nice Guys to his list of credits? His comedic timing in that film was impeccable.
Editor Rob: the other day as I was flicking through films to watch, I actually said to Jenny if we could watch the Nice Guys.
she said another day, let's watch Twilight again 😡
not nice of her!
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Mar/17
@ Al - That sounds amazing! He must be super-confident to give off that impression!
This time he gets 6ft and three quarters of an inch!
Al said on 17/Mar/17
He's a lot taller in person. To me he seemed almost 6'3
HonestSlovene said on 10/Mar/17
@VeryShortRussianDude Exactly man, but still maybe above average might suffice more though as in people that not deal with sites like this can understand. 5'11" and 6'0" ranges are still both safely above average, but they are just so close to the 5'10.25" average in Europe that you can't possibly say that those 2 heights are tall, hence tallish. The opposite holds true for 5'8" and 5'9".
Marquis said on 7/Mar/17
Honestly, looks 5'10.5" to 5'11" in most everything he's been in.
You can Google plenty of pics of him standing next to 5'6" Emma Stone... Gosling consistently looks 3-3.5" taller.
Then add in the 1.5" advantage of her high heels vs Gosling's dress shoes, and Bob's your uncle.
Jug said on 7/Mar/17
He is probably about 6 feet and a half. He appeared with Will Ferrell once on a talk show and looked not more than two inches shorter than him.
VeryShortRussianDude said on 1/Mar/17
James, what are you talking about? lots of people use the term tallish, for instance, a 5'11.5 guy might be considered tallish to most people but not out & out tall hence the term tallish.
It's a common term.
Dennis said on 1/Mar/17
6 foot is also a height, all guys around the 6 mark doesnt need to be called 5'11. Ryan gosling always look taller than his companions in all movies. 184 cm is perfect for him
job with a b said on 26/Feb/17
5ft 10.25in tops
HonestSlovene said on 18/Feb/17
@James Then rather say below average/above average. 182.8 cm is exactly 6'0", so not even a full 183 cm, that would be a bit above 6'0" in my opinion.
Alex2401 said on 15/Feb/17
Looks like 6.0
said on 14/Feb/17
Rob, do you think there could be 1 cm between him and Heath Ledger?
Editor Rob: I feel they are close, but maybe Heath edges him out.
Sam said on 13/Feb/17
Rob, could you add The Believer, The Big Short and Crazy, Stupid, Love to his credits?
6'1-6'1.5 Guy said on 10/Feb/17
In the film "Gangster Squad," he looked like a six-foot.
Height Ryan Gosling:
A) 182.5-184 cm.
B) 182-183.5 cm.
ma said on 10/Feb/17
Rob, please note that this guy is a 6 footer no taller.
Please watch La La Land and notice the gap between him and Emma Stone. Emma looks 170 cm if this guy is over 183
said on 5/Feb/17
Rob could you please answer to my question? I'm interested to know what you think
Editor Rob: Damian could be about 5ft 10
digling said on 1/Feb/17
I think he is a height conscious guy, he certainly can be like 184.3cm in the morning but goes to bed after a long day at 183.0
He has one of the best postures, and can wear a very small lift for standing at 186.0~185.3 sometimes
That's my bet.
James said on 31/Jan/17
@HonestSlovene To use the term "tallish" for 1.83 m people is like using the term "shortish" for 5' 8" people. Nobody says that!! Most people say that 5' 8" guys are short. Please go to Oxford Dictionary or Merrian-Webster and you will see the word "tallish" doesn't exist in English. As I said only height geeks use that term.
James said on 31/Jan/17
@HonestSlovene 50th percentile is the average. 75th percentile is more than 50th percentage, more than 60 th percentage, and even more than 70th percentage. Therefore way above average. By the way, the term "tallish" is only used in celebheights.com or by height geeks. Most people only use three terms: "short", "average" or "tall". A legit 6 ft (1.83) guy like Gareth Bale would be considered tall in the USA, instead of "short" or "average".
James said on 31/Jan/17
@HonestSlovene Nope, 1.82 is not 6 ft. 6 ft is 1.83, ergo 80th percentile, good enough to be tall. A legit 6 ft guy like Gareth Bale is obviously tall in the US among the white population. I don't know how tall is Ryan Gosling, but I'm talking about guys that are solid 1.83, not 1.82 or 1.82.5.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jan/17
Usually looks a strog 6fter and occasionally a weak 6ft1
Balrog said on 29/Jan/17
This is a better listing, don't rule out 6'0'' for him.
said on 22/Jan/17
Rob, don't you think that looking at this picture Damien Chazelle it's a bit taller than his listed height on the internet (1,77) or Ryan Gosling shorter than 1,84?
Picture: Click Here
Matthew said on 21/Jan/17
He looked like a 182cm guy in La La land 511.5, awesome film!!
HonestSlovene said on 18/Jan/17
@James Nope, the average for that population would be around 178 cm and since Ryan clocks in at about a legit 6'0" (182-183cm) he would around the 75th percentile. Tallish, no doubt, but not solid tall. This listing is still the most he could be, I generally see him at 5'11.75"-6'0.25", so a legit 6'0", no more, a nudge shorter than 6'0"-6'0.5" Bradley Cooper.
Willes189 said on 15/Jan/17
Rob, can you add La La Land?
Moody said on 15/Jan/17
Lol at anything less than 6'0.
said on 14/Jan/17
@Kaneff I personally don't think you have to be 90th percentile to be tall. Look at this chart:
1.83 is definetely over 80th percentile among 20-40 years old American Caucasian population so it is already tall. Anyway, since this is a bit subjective issue, if you feel like 6' 1" is the start of the tall height is OK. From my perspective (legit) 6 ft is the start of the tall height in the US.
said on 10/Jan/17
Rob which one of these options of morning to evening ranges would suit Gosling best. ;A) 186cm-184cm B)185.5cm-183.5cm C)185cm-183cm or would you guess outside either over or under of the above ranges?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't go as low as C, I feel at least B range for him, actually between a-b I feel is likely.
mickey said on 9/Jan/17
he's already being guessed as less than 6ft? i remember when he was measured as 185cm on google
Hijopotamus said on 6/Jan/17
182 cm and he knows it

Rob, can you answer please, do you guess the celebs highest or lowest height?
Editor Rob: Ignacio, not their morning height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/17
6ft0¼-6ft0½ for me. Clearly taller than 5ft11 range guys
Jay said on 4/Jan/17
Gosling has been making Matt Bomer - a supposedly true 5'11", look much shorter. Goslings a strong 6 fter.
grizz said on 3/Jan/17
@Importer, you don't have to compare them separately. Just google images "Bradley cooper Ryan gosling", there's a couple of pics where they stand together. Even if we tend into account that Bradley loves beefier footwear, there's an obvious height advantage in favor for Bradley
Importer said on 31/Dec/16
Gosling and Cooper are really close, the difference is by milimeters. However Cooper has a wider, more muscular mass and does appear taller in person or when comparing two separate pictures of him and Gosling.
Sarah said on 30/Dec/16
Looked at least six inches taller than 5'6 range Emma Stone
Sandy Cowell said on 28/Dec/16
Ryan does look in access of 6ft, that's for sure. I saw 'Drive' (some boys in the video shop were discussing it and I thought I would give it a whirl!) I didn't regret it!
I now own many of his films but as my little scrapbook isn't here, I can't say how many. One of the unexpected best is one with Keeley Hawes as a cast member, and Ryan also starred with Michael Pitt, as his brother, in 'Murder by Numbers', which stands out for me!
I look forward to seeing his New Year release, a musical of all things, with the delightful Emma Stone! It's a completely new direction for him so it should be interesting. He discussed it on the 'Ellen deGeneres' show recently and yes, he did look very tall indeed next to Ellen!
Kaneff said on 21/Dec/16
It can depend on the demographic you are around. A legit 6ft is actually one standard deviation above the average compared to the general U.S. population and general population of 20-29yos, meaning that only around 1 in 6 guys are taller. It's an objectively tall height by that standard.
if we're talking only 20-39yo whites then 6ft1 is the start of tall and 6ft is only 75th percentile. At 6ft I usually feel tall in places with a diverse demographic such as airports or cities like Seattle. In places with a mostly white population I don't feel that tall, even close to average range at times.
ryan allen said on 19/Dec/16
Sorry cs but I am also 6ft tall, and I don't think of my self as tall,above average, well here in New York at lest?
said on 17/Dec/16
Rob when you say 6ft 0.25inch (184) and on others use 6ft 0.5 inch (184), ur saying that a 184 (6ft 0.25inch) that is closer to 183 and a 184 (6ft 0.5inch)that is closer to 185?
If it's otherwise I am really confused :D
Editor Rob: Importer, because the 6ft 0.25 is 183.515cm, the nearest full cm is 184.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 14/Dec/16

Strangely looks very similar to 6'2" Ryan Reynolds in this picture. Could Gosling be wearing lifts?

In pictures with Jake Gylenhall, Gosling clearly looks 6'1, I would definitely put Gosling back to that height.

182cm-listed Matt Smith has poor posture here but Ryan towers him:-

@Tiago Ryan is 6'0", Brad Pitt is about 5'10.5", so a legit 6'0" and a strong 5'10"

He might be 184cm early morning

He's probably a 6'0.125" kind of guy like me. Could measure 6'0.25" on relaxed days or 6' flat as an absolute low.

he looks 6ft2 near russel crowe
Rollo Tomasi said on 3/Oct/16
6 ft flat

i would say 6ft.5 is the right answer considering everything that i saw
TD said on 23/Sep/16
Even at his most extreme low I can't see Ryan dropping much under 6ft. Looks to hold his height above the 6ft mark in every film I've seen him in. This seems a pretty fair listing.
said on 13/Sep/16
Rob, if Emma Stone is 168 cm, then Ryan Gosling should be downgraded to 180 cm.
Just take a look at this photo:
With that heels, she gains about 8 cm, and with that shoes, he gains about 2 cm.

Yh, he looked maybe around 2 Inches taller than Crowe, this listing seems pretty fair, I cant see him measuring under 6'0.25- He is likely 6'0.25-- 6'0.5 somewhere in that 184cm range
MisterPallin said on 9/Aug/16
I think 184 seals The deal when he is next to russell crowe in the Nice guys.

Also, he's been at least a solid 6 ft since he was 20, as evidenced here next to 5ft 11 Donald Faison.
Remember the Titans said on 12/Jul/16
I highly doubt this dude ever drops below a solid 6 ft.
truth said on 6/Jul/16
@Johno He has 1 in on Pitt most likely. So Pitt = almost 5'11(179-180 cm), Gosling = almost 6'0 (182-183 cm). Or basically a classic example of a 5'11 and a 6'0 guy.
truth said on 6/Jul/16
I think more 182 cm range rather than 183 cm but nonetheless the listing is not that far off.
Sasha said on 6/Jul/16
In "The Nice Guys" movie Ryan is not more than 1 inch taller comparing to Russell Crowe. If Russell is 5'10.5" (according to this site), Ryan is at most 5'11.5".
Johno said on 29/Jun/16
He looked about max 3-inches taller than Tom Felton who Rob has been pictured with and who Rob looked to edge, putting Tom at a height of ~ 5'8 and Ryan ~5'11 in comparison to Tom.
said on 16/Jun/16
i saw nice guys and i was impressed when i saw his height listed here as 184 cm! Looking at him with Russel Crowe and Brad Pitt he might be in 182-183 zone...Rob what do you think?Could he be a weak 6 foot?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't go as low as a weak 6ft for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/16
Cooper - Strong 184cm
Gosling - Weak 184cm
tony said on 2/Jun/16
He isnt taller than 5'11.
Johno said on 23/May/16
I saw the Graham Norton show with him on it to but i think a strong 5'11/weak-6'0 would suit him best. Not quite as tall as Cooper but most of height range throughout the day would probably be in the 5'11-range.
xxx said on 20/May/16
he was on the graham norton show next to greg davies and he was literally dwarfed like he looked 5'10-'11 max.
berta said on 19/May/16
this guy hava Always looked like a 6 footer to me. Maybe he is a Little over. i dont Think he is under. He is probably this height ore 6 foot. Bradley was a Little taller. He could be weak 185. But i Think he has something in his shoes and is 184 .
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/May/16
I think Bradley Cooper edged him out in Place Beyond The Pines. So if this guy is 183/184cm, then looks Cooper is 184/185cm for real

@S.J.H. yeah you re right and I think the 182-183cm range fits him better than the 183-184cm one.
S.J.H said on 27/Apr/16
Gosling is min 182cm and don't believe rumours that had putting him down under 5'11. People could check him out with most honest 6'2 actor ryan reynolds that there is not over 6cm between them
sexy said on 27/Mar/16
My height is like goslings with small frame. Believe me he is 179-180 maybe 181 is the highest
Johno said on 26/Mar/16
Gosling is almost as tall as Bradley Cooper or you could say similar in dimension and would be somewhere between 1-2 inches taller than Brad Pitt.
blackangold said on 16/Mar/16
Mr Killer Shrimp is right.
Gosling was interviewed by 6'4ish Michael Strahan at the oscars and he didnt look taller than 5'10-5'11.
Appe 6ft 0.5
said on 16/Mar/16Click Here
Ok, we don't see their shoes but there is clearly something strange: on this site Gosling is listed 184cm and Pitt 180cm.
What's wrong? There are a lot of photos (with different camera angles) which show they are very close in height.
In my opinion Gosling is under 184cm and Pitt is a little over 180cm.
Gosling in photos generally appears as a weak 6footer while Pitt as always a good posture looking close to 6ft many times, at the end I think 183cm for Gosling (chance of being 182cm) and 181cm for Pitt.
Rob, can I have your opinion on the height difference between them? How would you explain the photo?
appe 6ft0.5 said on 14/Mar/16
@Celebheights, this is not an inch difference for sure. Gosling is taller but no more than 1cm.
To me they re exactly 183cm Gosling and 182cm Bale.
datguy said on 14/Mar/16
Rob you can't lower ryan to a strong 6 foot and keep christian bale at 6'0 I think 5'11.75 would be a better listing for him

Here he is by Christian Bale:
6'0 1/2" might be spot on. I see a full inch between them.
