Yeah, the wider build can throw people off. I’m sort of similar to Steve myself at that weak 5’9” range (used a standard measuring tape) with a wider than average build. Sometimes it can get mistaken for 1-2 inches less than it really is and even when measured on some beam devices. It’s not always easy to get the most accurate result, you just got to experiment with it a bit and average it somehow based on the instruments you use. Though strangely I’ve been guessed to be like 5’10” by some people before. The only reason I think that’s happening is some people probably are adding inches to themselves and then applying it everywhere. I have one time measured around 5’10” in a pair of sneakers I wear, so unless shoe height claims have become a norm to some people out there, but I certainly don’t do that.
Chk23 said on 1/Sep/19
Holy crap 5’9? I seriously thought he was 5’8 and claimed it. I guess it’s his build. I’m 5’9.5 by the afternoon barefoot (I claim 5’10 cause it’s my prerogative) and I’ve had people mistake me for 5’7. Not even kidding. So it’s hard to put much faith in perceived heights. I wouldn’t doubt a picture of me on this site would get an average vote of 5’5 or 5’6

Yeah, he's wearing suspicious footwear.

It was Steve's Birthday yesterday. I hope he had a good one! 😉🎂🎁

5ft9.
Peter175 said on 16/Aug/19
He's very wide and has a long torso. Large skull too.

Looks a lot shorter than he is, sometimes looks 5'7.5, but I think he's around 5'9" maybe slightly less, though not lower than 5'8.5 for sure.
Elroy said on 14/Aug/19
The photo here shows he obviously wears lifts. 5’7.5” tops.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Aug/19
1/4 shorter than Jamie Foxx. Carell 5'8 7/8 (175cm) and Foxx 175.6cm.
khaled taban said on 11/Jul/19
He give the 5'8" impression.
This guy is no more than 5'8.5".
Ndomingu said on 8/Jul/19
Hey, Rob. Do you have an Oscar Nunuez page? On the office he tends to look a tad shorter than Steve Carell, maybe 5’8” range, but online he’s listed at 5’9”. Unless Steve wore lifts or higher shoes than Oscar on the office and they’re really roughly similar height. Oscar compares similarly better to Steve than Novak does I think. I remember Nunez was the third office guy who was on the shorter side of the male cast members other than Carell and Novak. Even though I think Carell was more a weak 5’9” range while Novak and Nunez looked more like a strong 5’8” range in comparison to him. Maybe Oscar could edge out Novak by a little bit.
Editor Rob
Around 5ft 8 for oscar seems likelier than 5ft 9, since as you say he looked a bit shorter than steve.
Heyrob said on 18/May/19
Hey rob. I'm 175.5 cm. Am I taller than Carell or is there like no difference. What do you think?
Editor Rob
You might look roughly similar, but there may be more chance of Steve a tad shy of 5ft 9 than a tad over I felt.
SD172 said on 7/Apr/19
In this video: Click Here at 0:26 He says everybody seems to think that I'm 5'8 with a pissed off expression on his face...
I'm guessing he's taller than that..
Rising174cm said on 13/Feb/19
I had thought he might have been a solid 5'9"/176 cm range guy who had dropped into the weaker 5'9" range due to his hip replacement about 5 years ago, but judging by a 44-46 year Steve Carell with a 72-74 year old Alan Arkin(listed 5'9.5" peak and 5'8" current), it appears Carell was never more than 5'9" flat either way and he never looked taller than that proportionately, imo. With Arkin in 2008: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here and 2007: Click Here Click Here It's reasonable to assume Arkin was somewhere in the 174-175 range during this time and it's not clear from these events whether Carell was taller.
Ndomingu said on 23/Jan/19
Yeah, Steve definitely seems to give off a 5’8” or 5’9” impression at times, but it depends on who he casts with. I’ve noticed he gets cast with tall actors often like in the office tv show, the big short movie, and even now the recent one that just came out, Vice. He did a great job acting as Donald Rumsfeld in that movie! On the office, Steve Carell looks to be around the same height as B.J. Novak and Oscar Nunez roughly, but I’m not sure which one of those three actors is the tallest or shortest one since their footwear advantage may vary on that show.
Duffer 5ft 11 said on 8/Jan/19
This guys a HOOT..!! Always cracks me up, same age as yours truly, so he may have lost a cm now (perhaps?) - 5'9" in the AM upon awakening and stretched right out is entirely possible, possibly a smidge under that in the PM. Most of the 'Office' dudes are strong 6-footers, so it's hardly surprising that Steve would give the impression of being shorter than he actually is. True average height/weight bloke.

Yes, indeed, that's roughly what I surmised when he strolled onto Ellen DeGeneres's stage just now. I said, "5ft8.5 - 5ft9!" Steve then proceeded to tell Ellen that her energy is unnerving and that he's scared of her!

He's showing himself to be a damn good laugh and he's instantly easy to warm to. Ellen knows how to bring out the very best in EVERYBODY, even the people who watch her!

😄😀🎄😊😋🎅❄️🎁🎍🤶

I will go for 5ft8.75.
Monkey knees said on 28/Nov/18
5ft 8 3/4in morning height is spot on.
TheBat said on 23/Nov/18
@BirdsOfWar

The only other average height male actor with a major role I remember in The Office was B.J. Novak who's also 5'9'. But yeah the series had some tall actors like Rainn Wilson at 6'1", John Krasinski at 6'2", Ed Helms at 6'0", and Will Farrell at 6'3".
BirdsOfWar said on 19/Nov/18
5'8.5-5'9" seems perfect. I think people have a short impression of him mainly because they don't realize how MASSIVE the cast of The Office is, nearly every single male through the history of the show is well over 6'0", probably one of the taller sitcom casts in history.
TheBat said on 8/Nov/18
Yeah 5'9" is correct. I've always seen Steve Carell as a 5'9" to 5'9.5" guy.
Mike5 said on 29/Sep/18
I used to think he was like 5’8 or maybe a hair under, but 5’9 seems accurate, no more than that tho
5'10" said on 9/Sep/18
Looks 5'7" on the office.
Dmeyer said on 23/Jul/18
For some reason looks 5'10-11 with Gosling
TJE said on 23/Jul/18
He looked at least 4.5 inches shorter than Rainn Wilson on The Office.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Jun/18
I would not go over 175cm. I think Carell is slightly under 5'9 like 5'8 7/8 (175) and Paul Rudd look at least 1cm shorter than Carell.
lee168cm said on 21/Apr/18
He edged out Paul Rudd in the 40 year old virgin
Baba said on 26/Mar/18
I actually think he is 5’9. The perception of him is of such a jerk in the office you want to think less of him. Also, he’s often next to some pretty tall actors (especially for Hollywood standards). If there was a noticeablely short male actor in the office it would be easier to tell his height. Everyone thought Napoleon was tiny too...next to his 6’4 guards.

check this out: He has shoes of at least an inch or two, shw is shoeless(and suppose to be 5'6 according to you) and it seems he has only 2 inches on her with both of them no having any shoes.
Tony said on 2/Mar/18
Leslie David Baker height is 5'10, he is consistently at the minimum 2.5 inches taller than Steve on every scene in the office.

I believe Steve Carell is at maximum 5'8 in shoes
Nik said on 26/Feb/18
I am not convinced he is 5'9"!
HonestSlovene said on 24/Feb/18
5'8" range maximum.
Interval said on 17/Jan/18
Rob, can sometimes a girl and guy stand next to each other and look the same height, but there's a one inch difference?
Editor Rob
Yes, it happens, especially if people are taking in an overall picture.

It's similar in a way to Perceptual Illusions.
Interval said on 14/Jan/18
Rob I'm really confused. A while back I showed you these pics of Cameron Diaz and Steve Carell.

Click Here

You said that Diaz might be close to 2 inches taller and was wearing shoes that give her almost 4 inches. But when I watched this even live, my family was commenting on how Diaz looked like a giant and Carell looked real short. Nobody would guess that he is actually a little taller than her.

There's pictures where I find a girl is 2 inches taller than you in heels or not, and sometimes it doesn't look like a big difference. But with Cameron Diaz and Steve, it looks like an enormous difference.

Is it because her head is smaller and she's slender?
Editor Rob
Sometimes people think 2 is 3 inch or others think 3 is 2...and as we know, proportions like head size or just angles of the shot/photos can change things too.

No, I refuse to believe he is 5'9. He always looks short-ish, no way he is exactly average.
Randomuser said on 11/Nov/17
Definitely a lift wearer
Guesser said on 10/Nov/17
He looks more than an inch shorter than 5'10 Bryan Cranston in Last Flag Flying. Click Here

I would say 5'8.75 is the most he could be. More realistically 5'8-5'8.5

He looks like a solid 5'9 man. He is not towered by Ryan Gosling (6'0¼).

I don't buy this. He looked shorter than Finn Wittock and significantly shorter than the 5'10" Pitt.
Jack The Smackhead said on 14/Sep/17
He looks a strong 5'8, but when standing next to Ryan Gosling there isn't much difference between them as you would expect from 5'8 and 6'0 men.
Tonyx said on 12/Sep/17
Have you ever had a feeling, deep inside, for a year or two or three, that a guy is wearing lifts and you are sure, you are convinced, yet you have no clear proof, but deep down you just know...
Steve can look anywhere from 5ft7in to 5ft10in...
Kane said on 5/Sep/17
Aside from Despicable Me, I've only ever seen him in The Office. I almost always gree with your listings, but I swear Steve is no taller than a flat 5'7"
5'9 said on 25/Aug/17
@ bob Yeah, he did imply that he was taller than 5'8". Or at least claim he was over 5'8". Interestingly Rick seemed genuinely surprised that Steve wasn't that much shorter than him. I think 5'9" could be right he could be just under that. He looked an inch to an inch and a half shorter than Rick Harrison in that show who I've seen listed at 5'10" and 5'11".
Agreco4l said on 14/Jul/17
5'8-ish"
Ivan said on 12/Jul/17
Hey rob, you should really try and make a little section where you can point out whether you think a celeb wears lifts or not
Aaron said on 7/Jul/17
Idk HE IS 5'9" but idk why but he still looks a tad bit under 5'9" to me.
Agreco4l said on 29/Jun/17
5'8-ish" range, probably 5'9" in shoes.
Hans Meiser said on 24/Jun/17
Spot on. Maybe a quarter inch taller, but 5'9 seems right.
teehona said on 21/Jun/17
just saw a photo of him and kirsten wiig standing next to one another....he is without a doubt shorter than 5'8. the more famous one gets, the more the height gets overinflated...just saying.
Shredder said on 14/Jun/17
I wouldn't rule out 5'9.5 , but 5'10 is a joke
bob said on 16/May/17
On an episode of "Pawn stars" he said himself he was 5'8.
Editor Rob: didn't he say everybody thinks I'm 5-8?
Matt said on 7/Apr/17
Watching the office rn and he's def like 5'8" or something
berta said on 29/Mar/17
He could be 5'9" flat in the morning. I don't think he's really short but he can give off a short appearance at times. Mainly because the people he gets cast with are often tall.
KYO said on 28/Mar/17
He's a bit below 5'9" IMO, maybe a bit above 5'8.5" though. Also @Ian Click Here Just curious but at what point in that video did Steve look taller than Rick? I think 1:49 in that video is probably the best point to judge height. Giving that Carell is leaning slightly I would say Rick is a little over an inch taller than him. I'd say Rick is a bit over 5'10" based on that video, assuming equal footwear.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Mar/17
I wouldn't label 5ft9 short at all
Cameron said on 24/Mar/17
Weak 5'9" seems about right for Steve. Rick Harrison is probably 5'9.5" to 5'10" No way he's 6 feet. In fact I'd go as far as to say that video proves Rick Harrison isn't 6 feet, although I can't take much else away from it.
Finn said on 21/Mar/17
Gaza2121 said on 7/Mar/17
Mike, Rick Harrison claimed 6ft on Pawn Stars.

I think he's a bit over 5'8. Not a weak 5'9.

Mike, Rick Harrison claimed 6ft on Pawn Stars.
Mike said on 22/Feb/17
Ian, I think it's interesting, that rick seems surprised at Steve's height in that video. Makes me think one of two things, either A He wears lifts or B Steve is one of the few guys who actually looks shorter than he really is. I think I saw Rick Harrison's height listed as 5'10" somewhere although I can't remember where I saw that. It's hard to make anything out of that video as it is taken at an odd angle and neither of them seem to be standing up straight.
Ian said on 19/Feb/17
This one is interesting, I'm a huge Pawn Stars fan and have always been curious about Rick Harrison's height. In this clip Click Here It seems like Steve might edge him out slightly but it's tough to say because you don't see them standing next to each other at any point.
MaskDeMasque said on 7/Feb/17
I've been rewatching The Office and think he's around 174cm. Looks about 5 inches shorter than 6'1.5 Rainn.
maxxyellia said on 30/Dec/16
Looks roughly the same as confirmed 5'7er Kiera Knightley wearing 1inch converse sneakers in the film "seeking a friend for the end of the world". Can't imagine him much taller than 5'8.
Dan said on 19/Dec/16
Don't see him hitting 5'9" even in the morning....
josh jeffords said on 21/Oct/16
Pretty short looked under 5 8 next to rainn wilson also in photo with bale and gosling.
Has looked around 5 9 in shoes but not barefoot.
He looked about 5 8 in get smart against 6 2 ish rock.
In photo below he is a good bit taller than mark ruffalo who is short but i figured at least 5 7.
He is not taller than a weak 5 8 .5 I can use myself to compare and I compare better than him to 6ft and above.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Sep/16
Mmm, about an inch shorter than 5'9.5 Kinnear in LMS.
mande2013 said on 23/Sep/16
He's not under 5'9. Just see him in Foxcatcher next to Mark Ruffalo.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Sep/16
@Rob, I mean look at Styles Click Here His neck and look in that first photo you'd think 6'4-6'5 LOL. Those must be really short women/ he's wearing monster boots. He's definitely the tallest looking 176 guy I've ever seen!
Arch Stanton said on 2/Sep/16
Baggy clothing, those Bieber type low hung rapper type jeans and baggy sweaters/hoodies/oversized t shirts tend to make people look shorter I think. Skinny jeans and tight t shirts on the contrary can make somebody look taller, Harry Styles is another example of a guy who is just 5'9 and a bit but can look tallish with the jeans and boots.
Editor Rob: Styles certainly can pull off looking more than 5ft 9, I wouldn't say a 5ft 9.5 argument for him wasn't believable...physically certainly gives a taller appearance than Steve does.
Arch Stanton said on 31/Aug/16
5'9 range can be a funny sort of height. Why is it a guy like Gary Lineker can look tallish yet guys like Carell and Justin Thereoux look on the shorter side? It's also weird how a 5'9.5-75 woman can look very tall and a 5'9-5'9.5 guy can sometimes give a short impression.Obviously it's bang on average height for a guy and not short, but you understand what I mean about it being a range which can give different impressions depending on build, personality and look?
Editor Rob: I've certainly seen some 5ft 9 guys who have the proportions of someone smaller, and I seen a 5ft 11 guy the other day who from a distance looked like 5ft 8-9, but it was probably the clothing that didn't help his look and a long beard.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Aug/16
Mmm he can look it though when stood his best, he did look a bit taller than Malco. Oddly he can look barely 5'8 at times though!
Arch Stanton said on 30/Aug/16
Rob are you sure on 5 ft 9?? I'd never have guessed him at that with Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen in the 40 year old Virgin, more 5 ft 8 range. He was noticeably shorter than Rudd.
Lynx said on 30/Jul/16
On 40 year old virgin he looks shorter than Paul Rudd, who should be his same height if he really is 5'9.
James said on 18/Jul/16
Shortest 5ft9 dude I've ever seen! LOL

I doubt it . here he looks 172cm or so

compare him to Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling on the pic . I am 5'9.5 and I dont look like this next to guys who are around 6'0 and I am almost eye to eye with my friend who I measured 5'11.25 ....there should be less differcence between carell and them if he is really 5'9. granted he stands a little loose there and is sidewards but still

OR maybe Christian bale and Gosling are both taller than listed
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Mar/16
Didn't think a strong 5ft9 was impossible
James C said on 29/Feb/16
Rob, would you say he is more just about 5'9" or an strong 5'9"
Editor Rob: I wouldn't have gone with strong 5ft 9, but typically I think he looks about that mark
BT said on 22/Jan/16
I'm not saying this listing needs changing, but I'd say Carell is nearer 5'8.75 than 5'9.25.
Pitch_Fork said on 9/Jan/16
PoliA, i think it's because of his proportions.
His legs are really rather short.
So he looks like a 5'7'' guy though may appear as tall as 5'9'' in comparison to other actors
PoliA said on 5/Jan/16
Is he that tall? Then I don't get why he gets so many short-jokes, when he is in the same range as:
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Jamie Foxx
Tom Hardy
Jared Leto
Patrick Dempsey
Matt Leblanc

None of whom are known as being short at all
Abode46 said on 11/Dec/15
Usually looks strong 5'8" to weak 5'9"
James C said on 1/Dec/15
Forgot to add, next too a lot of inaminate objects in movies where Rudd and carell eyes match where my eyes would be.
James C said on 1/Dec/15
In an stand alone picture and the right footwear he can seem taller then 5'9 but when he is with taller guys and other people he is definitely 5'9 or just bout 5'9 not 5'8 3/4 but could be an 1/8 under or over. I'm 5'9, and with guys that are 6'2 6'3 like Will Ferrell and that John karnoski guy I pretty much look the same as he does with them, though I'm more similar with Paul Rudd possibly or in between carell and Rudd like I think carell can edge me out an little bit and Rudd I can edge an little out or be exactly similar too Rudd. I think this is spot on.
The Dutch Guy said on 24/Nov/15
5'9'' is insane. He only has good posture. 5'8'' is his height.
Freshy69 said on 10/Nov/15
In The 40-year-old Virgin, Steve looks noticeably taller than Romany Malco who is 5 feet 8 1/2 inches according to IMDb. It's very possible that Romany is really around 5 feet 7, or what do you think, Rob?
Editor Rob: malco claims a kind of barely 5ft 9 and 9 on his twitter, I wouldn't discount him being somewhere in 5ft 8 or 8.5 range, carell looked taller, but I don't think a great amount really.
James said on 1/Nov/15
Can't believe he's as tall as 5'9". He always came across as a tiny guy to me. 5'9" is average.
J.Lee said on 15/Aug/15

Hah hah Rob, you know those pics of Diaz and Carell make her look towering, don't you think? But you said only near 2 inches taller. When my mom saw them on tv (in that photo)announcing the awards, she said that Steve looked really short and that Cameron looked like a giant.
[Editor Rob: maybe even a few inches can turn a switch in a brain to think it is a lot more...]
J.Lee said on 27/Apr/15
Rob, how much taller does Cameron Diaz look than Steve Carell in this photo? Keep in mind, that Carell is also wearing shoes that are more than 1 inch. It looks like Cameron Diaz is towering him.

[Editor Rob: from the few photos I just looked at, maybe near 2 inches taller. If he has nearly 1 inch shoe, then hers should be giving almost 4 inches for the barefoot heights to match up.]
Nick said on 25/Apr/15
I honestly think he is taller than 5'9 flat
Maybe doesn't stand the claimed 5'10 but 5'9.5 or 5'9.75 ( 176 / 177 cm ) would be perfect.

@MD: A bit cynical that, but yes, I know. I was just trying to share some positive thoughts for once. He quite probably knows full well he's 5'9 and not 5'10. When a celeb is claiming 1 inch over their actual height, I'd like to think sometimes it could be they measured a fraction shy of what they tell us they are - rounded up and that's the whole story. Or at least that's what the optimist in me tells me, in reality they might all be liars. We may never know, as one would have to be able to read minds (or somehow get to personally measure/witness the measurement of a celeb). Of course you have your 5'9 celebs who know they are nothing over 5'9 and still claim 5'10, and when they claim 5'11 it's all blatant lies and they should be hanged.
Josh said on 5/Mar/15
He might be a fraction more than this. Maybe 5'9.5. Can look near 5'10.

Looks 5ft9.5-10 here, and it even looks like Channing has a footwear advantage.
MD said on 22/Jan/15
@cole, or, you know, maybe he just added an inch or two to his height like most guys do.
cole said on 19/Jan/15
@Editor Rob: Maybe he measured 5'9.75 in the morning once, rounded up to 5'10 and didn't think much of it?
Jamz said on 18/Jan/15
5'9"? You must be joking. I wouldn't put him past 5'7".
MM said on 27/Nov/14
Rob, would you bet your life that Carell is not the 5ft10 he claims?
[Editor Rob: I'd never bet my life on any man's height...well, a guy called big G. I'd bet my life he wasn't 5ft 8 barefoot, even if put on a stretching rack for a week...

Carell doesn't look a legit 5ft 10 although at times you could say he could pass for 5ft 9.5]

@Steven, Dmeyer and Handsome: I thought he actually struggled with 5'9 next to 5'11 Seth Rogen in 'The 40 Year Old Virgin'.
Mostly he looks like a believable 5'9 guy though, I would be surprised if he was taller than that.

doesnt look tall, 5'8 sounds right

@Rhonda- He's taller than Steve Buscemi who's in the 5'8-5'8.5 range so we can safely rule that out.
Rhonda said on 16/May/14
Can't see him this tall. 5ft8-8.5 surely. Rob he can't be taller than you?

i'm pretty sure Colbert isn't 5'10.5 barefoot and i'd imagine with nearly every unreported celebrity on this site you can safely subtract an inch.

That doesn't look like a 2 and a half inch difference.
cole said on 9/Aug/13
He looked close in height with 5'8 Mark Wahlberg in Date Night. Also looked a bit more than 2 inches shorter than 5'11 ish Jimmi Simpson in that movie. Common also looked close in height with Jimmi btw so he might be a tad under 6' aswell.

Sam said on 27/Jun/13
I can only maybe see around 5'9 in the morning, otherwise I bet he drops to 5'8.5 in the evening. That is just what I think he is. He looks like a guy who's a good 5'8-5'9. Most easily a strong 5'8 but I'd put him below 5'9 if we're talking night time height. I don't wholly disagree, since it is close enough and as well he is probably 5'9 when he wakes up which would make this listing somewhat accurate.
Len said on 16/Jun/13
Carrell is 5'8" tops. Always looks a little short, seemed no taller than 5'6' or 5'7" Keira Knightley in Seeking a Friend For the End of the World.

Give her a slight edge in footwear, and boom, there you go. Carrell has never looked even average height.

When I look at pictures of Steve Carell and his wife, Nancy, I see that Steve and Nancy with her high heels are equal in height. Steve is definitely 5'9", but Nancy claims her height to be 5'8". To me, Nancy is more like 5'7", and she is a tall woman all around.

I gotta say 5'8 with Carrel. I've seen every office episode and I think 5'8 he always seems kinda short on the show and he's not much taller then jenna fischer.

Pic with him and Ryan Gosling, I know Carell has a big advantage as he is closer to the camera, but if Gosling is a legit 6 footer, then Carell is definitely 5'9".

I'd say 5'8.5" is absolute minimum.

@tributetodumbasses:

What's with the insults? Tempest is right, the American Average male is roughly 5'9.5". Worldwide, the average is in the 5'7" range, maybe, but he was only talking on American standards. Therefore, Tempest was right in saying that 5'8" is a little shorter than average. If you saw these stats linked below, you most likely wouldn't have posted your needlessly confrontational comment.

if he is 5'8 than he is taller than the average male you dumb ****. go back to school and learn about averages. the average male (AVERAGE) is 5'7. that means there are some very tall ****ers, and very short ****ers to make this number.

Randomly came across this site, lol. I found myself randomly standing next to Seth Rogen's 'End of the World' stand-in (same height/build) the other day. Just looking at me (5'8) next to him (5'11), it would make sense that Carrell is likely about 5'9. Just based on watching them in scenes. Of course, camera angle, build, and wardrobe makes a huge difference...but this seems accurate.
Hew said on 13/Dec/12
Watching The Office I'm positive he's 5'8 at most, might hit 5'8.5 with his best posture. Noticably shorter than 5'10 Leslie David Baker. Generally he also looks the same height as 5'8 BJ Novak.

Yea this is about right and 5'10 in shoes maybe 5'8 1/2 bc Iam 5'9 3/4 and my shoes make me 5'11 or a lil less because watch 40 year virgin when he is talking to Paul rudd they both look the same and they stand by the door I have the same type of door and they where wearing shoes and their line matches on the door but when wearing shoes so they're 5'8 1/2 barefoot and 5'10 in shoes

Hew is as correct as possible..... nothing more to add.

Rob you have Gosling at 184 cm, and there is not more than 5 cm between him and Carell. Either you upgrade Carell to 179 cm (which would be absolutely outrageous, if anything he sould be downgraded), or you should downgrade Gosling. In no way is there 9 cm between the two, wouldn´t you agree?

At most Gosling is 180 cm and Carell 175 cm.

Steve Carell and Paul Rudd both look under 5'9" imo. 5'9" is a pretty average height but both are shorter than the majority of their male co stars. I would say 5'8" flat for Rudd and Carell. In The 40 Year Old Virgin Carell looks more than 2" shorter than 5'11" Seth Rogan.

5foot7 for Carell? Stupid trash. I feel short, Carell doesnt look it. So how can he shorter then me? 1.75m is nothing, i feel not taller then my 1.66m cousin. Carell should be shorter then 1.75m? How tall are you guys? 1.30m? Carell is more 1.77m then 1.70m.

Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 15/Jan/12
You are correct steven, Carell at 5'8" MAX might even be too generous, which in turn proves yet again that Ryan Gosling's 185cm listing is way out. Gosling is 180cm flat.
steven said on 14/Jan/12
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP , you are kind giving him 5'8 max. 5'6 jon stewart have't stand straight and carell still does't look over 1.5" taller. i would have say steve carell is only 5'7 flat same height as paul rudd. if they were 5'8 , editor rob were to be 5'9.
Silent d said on 12/Jan/12
I got to admit he looks short next to 6 foot 3 will ferrell. Carell was only up to the bottom part of ferrell's ear. I'm assuming will ferrell wears lifts. I know steve carell is not a below average guy. I remember jon stewart claimed he was taller. He looked short in crazy stupid love but i think it was part of his character. A sad middle aged loser. Ryan gosling had to seem like a confident young man, that is why the difference was 3inches plus. They make steve carell short in movies on purpose because he plays damaged characters. 5 foot 9.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 7/Jan/12
Steve Carell doesn't look 5'9" (175cm) next to 5'6.5" (169cm) listed Jon Stewart:

Saying steve carell is same height as mark wahlberg is an insult. He obviously wears lifts. He is a good actor. Antything shorter than 5 foot 8 for steve carell is an insult to him and it is outrageous! 5 foot 9. No way he is 5 foot 10.5 as he claimed once somewhere. In get smart he looks 5 foot 9 next to anne hathaway who is 5 foot 7 plus heels . 5 foot 9.

Sorry Rob, You DID add Kevin Mchale lol. I would say if EVEN RYAN SEACREST doesn't seem to buy this kid being 5'7 in a half IN NORMAL SHOES, then Mchale is probably 5'6, and slightly under at night. (He DID whisper the 5'7 in a half part like he was hiding something, but Ryan caught on and pretty much goes "in your dreams") lol.

BACK TO STEVE CARELL - I'd say Strong 5'8 in the day, Weak 5'8 at night.
stoodnext2 said on 24/Aug/11
On "The Office" (the episode where Kevin Mchale guest starts as a pizza boy) he TOWERS over listed 5'8 Kevin Mchale (he play's "Artie" on the shoe "GLEE"). I'd say 5'9 for Steve Carell. BTW Kevin Mchale admits on the Ryan Seacrest show that he is 5'7 and a half. Rob, he says it at the 3:10 mark. Three minutes and ten seconds in. Ryan jokes right after and says "in the right shoes" lol. I think you should add him Rob, its a legit confession and its live video footage. Here's the clip

Aaron: I do not share your comment. But basically, your comment is incorrect due to the following reason: scientists do not study the average height of populations by targeting genotype. When science determine the average height for adult male in any country in the world, does not determine (for the same country) the average height for a race or another. The average height within the same country, is only one. What we can target is the average height for a male or female. Following your approach, to cite one example, we could also target the average height of people by the color of eyes, long ears, or any other variable, capricious or whimsical. The average height for an adult male in the United States, only segmented by race, has no value, since that country has many other millions of people of different genotypes (I remind you that all other citizens, are not aliens or zombies of a swamp ...).
The height of Mr. Carell compares with the average height for an adult male, considering all genotypes living on U.S. soil (the science makes it this way, and they know about this issue much more than you and me.)
blah said on 1/May/11
the only way to know someones height is to measure them. you cant judge someones exact height by comparing them to another person, especially when you dont even know the exact height of the person your using as a comparison. besides its not like everyone walks around barefoot all day or wears the same footwear. we get it, hes probably somewhere from 5'8 to 5'9 quit splitting hairs, its just an inch for crying out loud. NO NEED TO BE ANYMORE EXACT THAN THAT!!
Aaron said on 6/Apr/11
Hey Simon, hate to get in the way of your race rant there, but averages are/SHOULD only be relative to genotype. We're all limited or have greater propensities to be certain ways based on our genes, and genes pool. These are very simple facts. Average white man is almost 5'10.5" in the US, and therefore, due to Steve's genetically being white, he is below average.

Ezio: with all respect, I´d like to tell you something. The Male Average Height in a country includes all the age ranges, and also all the RACE RANGES. This means it´s not correct, for instance, including WHITE PEOPLE, and NOT CONSIDERING HISPANIC OR BLACK PEOPLE. As far as I know, this website considers human beings´heights, and as far as I know, HISPANIC AND BLACK PEOPLE are human beings. Said that, if you consider that the population in U.S. is aroung 350 million people, and what´s more important, HISPANIC + BLACK PEOPLE total A THIRD of the total population in U.S. That´s why if you don´t consider them, you would have a COMPLETLY WRONG AND DISTORTED RESULT. To end my comment, nowadays Male Average Height in U.S. is around 5´9" (in this case I mean only men, all races, all ethnicities, including WHITE SKIN, OIL SKIN, BLACK SKIN, BLOND HAIR, BRUNETTE, GREEN HAIR, LONG NAILS, MOUSTACHE, BEARD, GREEN EYES, BLUE EYES, BROWN EYES, HAZEL EYES, NICE PEOPLE, NASTY PEOPLE, SERIOUS PEOPLE, SYMPATHETIC PEOPLE, ETC. ETC..

---Americans WANT to believe they're taller than average, they're not.---

@Anonymous-- You are wrong. The average height of an American man (aged any race) is 5'10

The average height of a white American man is 5'10 1/2-- Both are well above average and taller on average than a man in the United Kingdom.

C: Hmm, what ya think, could he be a 5´9 in the morning?
D: He´s not 5´9, he is 5´8

As if someone could determine the height of a person that exactly just by a picture.
Seriously get a life people. However, this discussions are funny as hell.

Kristian said on 15/Dec/10
I am just going to chime in here with the average height thing. What people do not understand is, that the average of something statistically, is not always the average of something in the context of what we define as average. For example average looking would be 5/10. However when you consider average height, you have to understand the majority of all cases are measured either below or above the average height. There would be the same if not more people measured below what the average height ended up being. This is because there are more anomalies in terms of super height than there are in terms of super short. I see more men 6'5" for example then i do 5'2". They are essentially what brings up the average height to something which on second glance doesn't feel quite right. Finding the average of something statistically is just a method of numbers, it has nothing to do with what is and isn't acceptable.

true enough jon. Carell's character Michael Scott in 'the office' is a small, petty childish man, and we'd love it if he was only 5'8. Carell, on the other hand, is not. i guess that makes him a better actor than we give him credit for. Ed Harris, Pachino, McShane, they all play authoritative badass roles and we never even consider their height -because they're average height and there's no reason to discuss it. however, we hate Micheal Scott so much, that we instinctively attack the actor who plays him.
Anon said on 5/Apr/09
It is much better to have an attractive face and confidence with an average height to a member of the opposite sex, than it is to have an above average height, unattractive face, and low confidence.
jon said on 5/Apr/09
Truth is JD I was just trying to explain my point about WHY it is some celebrities heights are less ARGUED about than others, despite their fame. It is a curious thing, what do you think of it? Steve Carell and Tom cruise are punch bags for discussions like these, but men like Ed Harris, Al Pacino, Ian Mcshane, Lance Henriksen, are just less TALKED about concerning their height. It's just accepted if they're short or not.

When someone finds out Cruise or Carell may be taller than they thought, they go on to a website like this and vent their frustration. And I think it comes down to the character of the actor. People expect or surmise from their personality that THAT guy must be shorter than me.
JD said on 4/Apr/09
wow jon, for someone who doesn't care how tall steve carell is... 4 paragraphs later. and i think this is a discussion about Steve Carell's height, not yours, no one asked.
either way B.J Novak is 5'8.5 (and he CLAIMS 5'8.75) and Steve is always a little bit taller than him, never shorter. I say he has to be 5'9, he can hold his own next to Dwight, Jim, or any of the shipping crew (watch the basketball game, where everyone is in sneakers), which are all 6'3 or taller. You would expect all of those tall people to dwarf a 5'8 guy, and Carell still stand respectable.

About Carrell: Have you every wondered why Steve Carrell's height is much more of a debate than other actors around his height? I'll give you two good examples: What about Ed Harris or Ian Mcshane? Both are similar or shorter heights, BUT they're height is less bandied about. The reason is Steve Carrell plays a sort of character that viewers expect to be "short" as opposed to characters played by Ed Harris or Ian Mcshane. The same idea can be applied to the EPIC TIZZY around Tom cruise and his height. While he isn't really that short.

Cat, people bull*hit about a lot of things other than height. And remember if one bull*hits then the next guy has to in response. For example, if my friend told me in pride and over a beer that he was 6', while he is actually 5'10, then I would have to give a CORRESPONDING bull*hit and say my height is 6'2 rather than its actual 6'. Understand? That's how all this starts. And for goodness sake, its not like everybody has a height scale at home! People are bound to distort their height.

Is it really that important for you Cat to prove Carell, Hathaway, and Jolie are all shorter than they're billed? Do you have something against Hathaway and Jolie? That you need to be *aller than them? I don't think Angelina Jolie is 5'4, I think she's at least 5'6--my opinion.

Jon, it's comments like yours that P*** me off. If heights don't matter then why are you looking at this site and if heights don't matter why do ALL the celebs lie about their height? Because for some reason it's important to be tall. If Steve Carell is 5'8", which I think he probably is, that would make Anne Hathaway about 5'5" and Angelina Jolie about 5'4", which is what I have been arguing on this site. After all the pictures and postings and heel allowances, I'm convinced this is true. This isn't about diminishing the talent or looks of the actor/actress but trying to get them to stop BS'ing about their height, then people won't have insecurities about their own height.

Why are all you guys all in a tizzy about Carell's height? I'm 6" and I couldn't care less how tall he is. Although he may seem short because of the kind of character he is, it's true that he may be just around average height. It's interesting to know someone's height, but why does everybody put such a premium on somebody's "height"? Is this a site for trolls that are ridden with their height insecurities?

I just REALLY can't believe he is over 5"8". I mean, he was at most the same height as 'Jay' in 40 Year Old Virgin who has an official site height listing of 5"8" (so he wouldnt be any taller). Plus theres this pic of him slimed at nickelodeon awards and barefoot next to Tobey Maguire (also barefoot)... EXACT SAME HEIGHT! and Tobey is at most 5"8"

Leung is right everyone in the office is alot taller than him. I'll bet he's a solid 175. He definitely looks it in most movies.

Steve Carell is 5
5'8.5'' said on 18/Mar/09
if steve carrell is 5'8 then im happy because im in the 5'8 5'9 range. but none the less he is hilarious and has a beautiful wife. the average u.s. male is 5'9. all the tall people are in the backwoods and country states. go to california or europe when youre 5'9 and you will be surprised that you are tall as or taller than alot of ppl.

OliTheMan,

Greg Kinnear is only listed at 5'9.5", here. It's funny your bring Greg up, because I went to go find some picture of the two, together, and they very much seem to support the current listed height. In fact, they look almost the exact same height, at times, but I think that's because of Kinnear's slouching, or it could be chalked up to Steve in lifts:

oh and i dont know if anyone caught the last episode of The Office but Dwight (a.k.a. Raiin Wilson) called Michael (Steve Carell) "You short pathetic man!". I know many would seem short compared to Raiin but it could be a reference to the fact Carrell is below average
OliTheMan said on 3/Mar/09
dude this guy is so ****in 5ft 8, he's like 2 inches shorter than Greg Kinnear, who I believe is a 5"10"er
Random Person said on 2/Mar/09
He does seem 5'8 spot on.
Perro said on 26/Feb/09
Yeah.. In fact he doesn't seem to be 510.. For me he is 58..
Torsten said on 19/Feb/09
There is no way that Steve Carell is 5'10...He doesn't look average at all. He looks on the shorter side of average to be honest.
