He can look 184cm on occasion though.
Hugh 190cm said on 8/Apr/09
I see you've downgraded him. Guess I can't entirely disagree with this new listing.
anonymous said on 8/Apr/09
5'10" is not "very short"....c'mon...even if he is 5'10 to 5'11" that not short!!!!!!!!1
Alex said on 8/Apr/09
He looked 5'11 in the new Fast and Furious.
RisingForce said on 8/Apr/09
I see Rob downgraded him. I agree that he's not quite 6 ft. And I doubt that De Niro is as low as 5'8" flat, but what's interesting is that Vin has only 3 inches on him and Vin is closer to the camera. Plus we can't see if Vin is wearing boots.

I'd bet that Vin is 5'11.5", his huge boots got him listed at 6'2" regularly.
BerryRed said on 7/Apr/09
Yeah, I really didn't get the vibe of Diesel being over 5'11" either when I met him. Just a few random picks which caught attention, that I thought I'd share:

Diesel with 6ft Timothy Olyphant in A Man Apart (fabulous acting from Diesel in this film!). Olyphant is slightly taller than Diesel in their scenes together. Olyphant wore flats throughout the film. Diesel wore his signature big-thread boots.Click Here

it depends on how tall Walker is too, he looks pretty tall in those pictures Boxing fighter posted. Walkers real height and Vins boots make it really difficult to pin down his height.
linebacker40 said on 5/Apr/09
A 5'11" flat for Diesel.
Shaw said on 3/Apr/09
I agree with JTRoN, Diesel did look noticeably shorter than Jonathan Ross, maybe by as much as 2 inches
Alex2401 said on 3/Apr/09
On the photos you posted Boxing Fighter Vin is 3-4" shorter than Paul and Vin is
again wearing big boots while Paul is in normal shoes.So there is a bunch of
evidence that Vin is no more than 5'10-5'10 1/2(177cm-179cm).He really looks
very tall but he is just an average height guy.
Boxing Fighter said on 2/Apr/09
I totally agree with JTRoN, I also never agreed with the 5ft10 crap that people usually say, but he was looking very short near Walker even with high shoes!
I always thought Vin Diesel as being 5ft11, but now, I believe he could be a lot more 5ft10 than 6ft.
Doug said on 1/Apr/09
Perhaps Diesel belongs to the 6 foot ego complex group that Stallone and Pitt are in which explains his huge footwear? All men would appear to be under 6 foot barefoot and it seems to shatter their egos that they are, so compensate with huge boots? At least Diesel can pull off 6'1" more comfortably than the other two though. I wonder how on earth a guy who is little more than 5'11" can have been listed at 6'4" or 6'2" for that matter.
Doug said on 1/Apr/09
Walker looks 6'2.5" to me, he is noticeably tall he really isn't so far off 6'3" as people might think, he does claim this. This would put Diesel at 5'11.5" which I think he is. Remember Walker is clearly secure with his height and always wears flat sneakers even to premieres and Vin is always wearing huge boots.
RisingForce said on 30/Mar/09
That's what I was hoping JTRoN, especially since Ross apparently has an interest in height himself as I've heard he's brought up the subject a lot. It would have been even worse if Vin claimed 6'2" which he is or was officially listed at.
JTRoN said on 30/Mar/09
wow Vin looks even shorter in those pictures B Fighter posted, even if Walker was 6'3 that would still put Vin around 5'11-6

I never agreed with the 5'10 stuff people always posted but seeing pictures like that make me wonder, and he's wearing his boots too
Boxing Fighter said on 30/Mar/09

Come on guys, if Paul Walker is 6ft2 Vin diesel cannot be taller than 5ft11.
He does look at least 2" (or 3") shorter than walker BUT he is using massive boots! Just look at the picture.
Walker shoes looks very normal to me.
I always thought he was 5ft11, but after seeing this photos I think he is even shorter.
Lenad said on 24/Mar/09
Looks a proper 182cm guy
mamas said on 24/Mar/09
he looks tall hopefully he is at least 5 11 but no matter what he is still sexy as hell
RisingForce said on 24/Mar/09
I was hoping that Ross would bring up height because I've heard that he has an interest in height. It would have been funny if Vin claimed 6'1" like he did on the radio show or 6'2" like he was officially listed at. It would have been funny to see Jonathan's reaction because he's 6'1.5" himself and around 2 inches taller than Vin.
Doug said on 24/Mar/09
Yeah maybe possibly he is 6' he looked very close to it. He is not below 182 though I'm pretty sure.
RisingForce said on 23/Mar/09
I don't see many similarities between Vin and Telly Savalas except that they're both bald and wore height enhancing footwear almost 24/7.

I agree Doug, weak 6'0" or maybe more like 5'11.5".
Doug said on 23/Mar/09
Looks a very similar height to Bruce Willis it has to be said. Am I the only one though you thinks Diesel looks like Telly Savalas did??
Doug said on 23/Mar/09
I would estimate exactly 5'11.5" (182 cm) based on pics I've seen and clips compared to Jonathan Ross etc..
Doug said on 23/Mar/09
Haha 6'4" is hilarious. "big heeled bone-crushing boots" is an understatement. The man is a weak 6' in my view. A likely 182cm everywhere I've seen him.
Curious said on 22/Mar/09
I go with the guys that are saying 5'10'' 5'11'', i have met him before, and i am 6'3'', he really did seem like 5'11'' (same height as my dad)
maximus said on 22/Mar/09
5'11" sound about right....not too short but not too tall...a fairly decent height...even 5'10" is a fairly decent height...especially with shoes. If Vin was short, which he is not, it would be very,pacino,hoffman...etc..etc.
RisingForce said on 22/Mar/09
Yeah, Vin does look shorter at the end of the video.
Anonymous said on 21/Mar/09
Rising Force,

I didn't realise that Jonathon Ross was 6' 1.5", I thought he was 6' 1". I still think Vin looks about two inches shorter than Ross (watch when they shake hands at the end) which makes him about 5' 11.5".
RisingForce said on 21/Mar/09
I do agree though miko that 5'11.5" makes a lot of sense. I wouldn't rule out 6'0" though either.
RisingForce said on 21/Mar/09
Here is the appearance that Anonymous is referring to.
Click Here

Vin did look 6 ft compared to 6'1.5" Jonathan and it seems that Vin isn't wearing big boots.
miko said on 21/Mar/09
Agreed. Couldn't tell how big his boots were on Ross but they were chunky.

Ended up about 1" shorter than 6"1 Ross in them anyway. All evidence seems to point to 5"11.5 at the minute.
Anonymous said on 20/Mar/09
Just saw him on Jonathon Ross. He's no taller than 5' 11". He needs to be downgraded to 5' 11.5" at least.
RisingForce said on 16/Mar/09
Actually Glenn considering the size of his boots I could easily see him going from 5'11.5" to 6'2" in them. That makes sense to me. He does look bigger than some 5'11" flat guys like Mickey Rourke, but shorter than some legit 6 footers considering the boots he wears.
Alex2401 said on 16/Mar/09
Guy with bodybuilders build often look taller because he gives impression of big.
178cm is not short for Vin or for any guy.With big boots and 182cm he would be
much bigger,maybe 188-189cm and he is not that tall.
Range of 177-179cm seems right(5'10 1/2)+ big boots 6'1.
In the "Pacifier" he is 10 inches shorter than Brad Garrett.
glenn said on 15/Mar/09
alex-you always forget what i see.while i think diesel could be 5-11.5,i saw him at 6-2 in big boots recently.
RisingForce said on 14/Mar/09
The problem is that Vin is almost always in huge boots. Rarely is he wearing anything else. I've even seen him in his Frankenstein boots on the beach.
Alex said on 13/Mar/09
I never seen Vin looking 6'0ish unless he's in some type of big boots. On TV for the superbowl I saw him next to Vin and he was taller than Vin by at least an inch and Paul was in these pretty flat looking sneakers compared to Vin's chunky looking boots/shoes.
RisingForce said on 13/Mar/09
Yeah, a strong 5'11", maybe 5'11" and change makes sense. Glenn's initial estimate I believe was 5'11.5".
bam said on 11/Mar/09
good job rising. I'd have a hard time buying a full 6' based on that pic. I would guess 5'11.25. In clunky boots he can look tall.
Midget said on 10/Mar/09
I agree with Brad on this one. Max 5'11" for Vin but not as short as 5'10" though. Of all the movies of his that i have enjoyed and studied his height in i have never once thought he was 6' barefoot or taller. Strong 5'11" at most which is still a great height for a male, i wouldn't be complaining considering im 5'5.5" soaking wet! lol.
anonymous said on 9/Mar/09
A solid 5 foot 11.
el toppo said on 26/Feb/09
I've met him a few times. 6 foot is wrong. 5'11 at the most is being generous. No way shorter than that, but no way taller.
Brad said on 25/Feb/09
His girlfriend is at 6' 1" max in heels and Vin is being owned. Give it up, he isn't 6' and never will be.
RisingForce said on 20/Feb/09
Maybe she's one of those tall women who says they're shorter than they really are. If she's 5'10" then that's easily the shortest I've ever seen Vin look. Then again that's one of the rare times I've seen a picture where he's actually wearing dress shoes.
Alex said on 15/Feb/09
If she's 5'10 barefoot which I can see then yea 6'1 max in heels because those aren't huge heels. And that may be actually over an inch difference like 1.5 inches. Points back to Vin being 5'11 which may be dead on.
ewt said on 13/Feb/09
movie babylon ad...scenes with fighter Jerome le Banner(in the cage,the red haired guy).Le Banner is around 6'3"(190),wearing shallow,fighting sneakers,and he looks way taller than Diesel who is wearing his elevators...
Alex2401 said on 12/Feb/09
5'10(178Cm) and 2.5(6.3cm) inch shoes = 6.05(184cm)height.Average guy has 0.5 inch
up to 1 inch shoes and hes got 2.5 inch shoes so that makes him even with people
with normal shoes who are really 5'11 or just below 6'0.
Take away his big boots and you have 5'10 guy.
RisingForce said on 12/Feb/09
Maybe a full 6 foot is a bit much, after all one of the rare times we've seen him in dress shoes he was shorter than his 5'10" listed girlfriend who was wearing heels. She would have been about 6'1" max in her heels and he was about an inch shorter.

So maybe this picture with 5'9" Chuck Norris wasn't an illusion. Click Here

I'd say more like 5'11" or 5'11.5" for Vin and with those massive 3/3.5 inch boots he can pass for quite a bit taller.

With these boots he's giving Robert Downey Jr. a run for his money.

The 5'10" stuff for Vin is pretty absurd, but more 5'11ish, 5'11.5" max would explain the Norris picture and how he looked so short next to his girlfriend in just about the only picture I could find of him in dress shoes.
Alex said on 5/Feb/09
James, no I meant he winded up being 2 inches shorter than I was. Not 2 inches less than my estimate before seeing him.
Clay said on 3/Feb/09
He's minimum 5'11-5'11.5 though as he always look 6'1/6'2 in his clunky boots.
Complex said on 3/Feb/09
No I didn't alex but you're a legit 6'0 and i'm sorry if it makes everyone mad but Vin is 5'11 tops, he's not 6'0. And he may be in the 5'10 range, so i'm sure you'd be taller.

I'd guess not clay since he was shorter than Malkovich who is the same height as alex, logic would tell one the answer.
RisingForce said on 3/Feb/09
His boots are almost always more than 1.5 inches. 2 inches, plus probably something inside. They're unusually thick.
Alex said on 2/Feb/09
Thing with Vin also is a lot he tends to wear biggish type of boots that look to give 1.5-2 inches of height.
Alex said on 2/Feb/09
Complex, you saw pics of me on here? I posted some over time being on here.

James, I knew Angle was going to be a bit shorter but I figured an inch shorter since I thought he was 5'11 but winded up being 2 inches less. No big deal because you'll have other celebs who will be a good couple inches shorter than you'd expect. You'll have guys who will believe Kane is 7'0 and wind up meeting him and see he's a good couple inches shorter.
Clay said on 2/Feb/09
Well is it really any suprise you think that Complex?
Complex said on 2/Feb/09
I'm a thousand percent positive that Alex would be taller than Vin, even if not by much, he would be taller!
Alex said on 1/Feb/09
I just saw Paul Walker and Vin side by side standing on NBC as part of the superbowl pre game stuff. Walker only looked an inch to maybe 1.5 inches taller BUT he looked to have flatter type sneakers like converse type while Vin looked to have some sort of boot on.

James, I would think I'd be a bit taller but you never know.
Alex said on 1/Feb/09
I'd like to meet Vin. I'd be a good comparison to him.
Alex said on 30/Jan/09
I've seen as much as 2-2.5 inches between Vin and Paul. Paul I dont put more than 6'1 1/2. That puts Vin at 5'11.
Clay said on 30/Jan/09
Going to have to disagree there VanDrak in Knockaround guys he looked tall and he looked BIG.
VanDrak said on 29/Jan/09
I'm a big Vin Diesel fan. The guy is a great action hero. He plays the same loud and aggressive take charge/kick ass character in every movie. Now realize this: Every action hero has a certain expectation to be "larger than life." So as a result many of them will do everything they can to look their best. Often this includes adding muscle and tone to their body, wearing clothing that showcases or enhances their physique and even footwear that enhances their height. Look, its all about image. -Vin Diesel never appears to be a short guy in his movies, nor does he ever look overly tall. I would say that Vin is likely 5'11" barefoot, with a solid build. I myself am 6'2" (barefoot) and I have worked out(4 to 5 days a week)for the past 8 years. I weigh 225 pounds. My bodyfat was last calculated to be 10% (when I went through police college). I am never confused with being 5'10" or 5'11". Often people tend to "boost" me to 6'3", though I am only 6'2". Once a man is 6 feet tall or more, he never is confused with being 5'10" unless he hangs out with 7 foot tall NBA stars or Big Bird. LOL! -Watch Knock Around Guys, Fast and the Furious or Triple X. Vin NEVER appears overly tall, he often looks average height,but with a solid build. It is Vin's extra muscle (compared to the average man)that makes people image that he "must be larger". -Whether Vin Diesel is 5'11" barefoot or 6 feet plus with his boots, it does not take away from the great roles he has played that have made him a living legend.
Alex said on 27/Jan/09
Glenn, true it can go the other way too looking 2-3 inches shorter but normally its 2-3 inches taller. I've been guessed at 6'4 once and 5'8 once.
glenn said on 27/Jan/09
actually they do shoot straight out of bed alot.morning shots are best to avoid crowds for exterior shooting.5am,6am alot.but alot are during business hours too.
Complex said on 26/Jan/09
Lol, very true alex, they prolly don't wake up and start shooting. I do try and give actors a little benefit of the doubt since they don't seem to get much sleep sometimes.
glenn said on 26/Jan/09
exactly alex.taller or shorter.
Alex said on 26/Jan/09
I'm sure Glenn can look as tall as 5'10 sometimes. People can sometimes look 2-3 inches taller than their real height.
glenn said on 25/Jan/09
thank you infin.people have been ridiculous here in the last 24 hours with that.
infin said on 25/Jan/09
Glenn can look taller than 5-8 indeed, check out his pics with chris cornell and hartnett. as for vin, 6 ft as his morning height is acceptable for me.
Alex said on 25/Jan/09
Complex, its tough to claim a celebs height in morning, midday or evening but I think its safe to say that in these movies they are probably their midday height max and could be their low. I doubt their shooting the movie right out of bed,lol.
glenn said on 25/Jan/09
its funny cause i can look 5-9 or more in some pics,and that was established by some here.and of course i can look shorter.5-7.never under.cause one doubts that vin diesel can look 6-2 to me in boots,doesnt mean they should downgrade me.when did you ever see vin besides on a dvd? or me? besides stills?
Chlawk said on 24/Jan/09
If he were 6ft.. why would he have 3in heels?
My father can look a 6'1 too.. or a half inch more even.. he is 6'0.. wears flats all the time and can still look 6'1 (no shoes on).. if Diesel actually looks 6'2 to glenn (who to be honest, doesen
Complex said on 24/Jan/09
a10 because you said "more taller" which makes no sense you're post doesn't count, lol, jk jk ;) All in fun, but yeah, I think more 5'11 max too, or a tad over in the morning maybe...
A10 said on 22/Jan/09
No way guys i've seen him once with flat shoes , I'm 177 and he's looked way more taller abt 183 or 184 cm .
Alex2401 said on 22/Jan/09
Vin is 178cm max.For all of you saying he is 6'0,just take a look @ XXX and you
can see him wearing big boots and still a lot shorter than the rest of the guys.
I think it's the right time for downgrade Vin to 5'11 max.
Alex said on 21/Jan/09
Complex, yea. Technically my true height for the day may be 6'0 1/4 since I am that at midday and thats around my average height taking my max and min height. I told a few people 6'0 1/4 and they looked puzzled, LOL.
5 ft 3.2 said on 21/Jan/09
I get what you mean, sorta. Oh, and I only use halfs or whole numbers too (except in my name) but I can see why most people would say 1/4 or 3/4. I mean, if you are really insecure with your height, you want to sound taller right? So explaining that you are "4 foot 11 and three quarters" makes you feel taller, right? Even just a quarter of an inch will make you feel taller, although there is no difference really. I guess if you are 4 foot 11 and three quarters, you should just say 5 feet.
Complex said on 21/Jan/09
It actually doesn't sound rude 5 ft 3.2, because I do agree, no one cares and no one should care. But I swear the moment I posted my height i'd prolly get, that's why you think such and such is shorter and things of that sort. I will say i'm not short, I just base heights on observation and i'm likely wrong on some but i don't want ppl thinkin i'm tryin' to downgrade them to my height or downgrade them because im taller, so I just keep it on the dl. :) I do agree alex 1/4 to 3/4 would be annonying, I stick to halfs or whole numbers :D
anonymous said on 21/Jan/09
I'll live with 6 foot.
5 ft 3.2 said on 20/Jan/09
Wow. Alex and Complex have their own little forum here. :) Seriously, you two should just exchange e-mails. By the way Complex, I don`t think anyone really cares about your height. Does that sound rude? Sorry, I`m in a bad mood. -.- Oh yeah, and I think Vin Diesel is a bit taller than 6`0" but I could be wrong. He is AWESOME in the Riddick series!!!!!
Alex said on 20/Jan/09
I'm not a fan of fractions either though at times I've claimed my height in fractions. I can see using the 1/2 but 1/4 and 3/4 can be annoying.
Alex said on 19/Jan/09
Complex, its cool. I understand if you dont wanna say your height online with the way some on here can be. I myself like to talk about my height and even posted some pics of myself. And I have one comparison with a celeb on here too.
Alex said on 17/Jan/09
Complex, sounds fair enough to not wanna say your height. With your example it would make sense to claim 7'0 unless you prefer to use fractions. Say 7'0.5 out of bed and 6'11.75 at the lowest. Would you claim 7'0? I sure would in that situation.

Or this. 6'2 out of bed and 6'1.25 evening. Would you round down and say 6'1 or take 6'1.25. In that case I'd go ahead and say 6'1.5 since 6'1.5 would be for a good couple hours of the day at least.
Complex said on 17/Jan/09
Well alex generally I don't like to state my height just for the fact that ppl might say stuff like "oh that's why you always downgrade such and such cuz you want him to be your height" or "you just wanna say you're taller than such n such". so to make sure ppl don't think I have ulterior motives (which I don't), I keep my height on the downlow, at least until ppl here are mature enough to realize that i'm basing on research and observation and not jealousy or anything like that. But i'll use a fake height measurement and tell you what I claim (falsly) to give you an idea.

Say I measure 7'0.75 morning height, 7'0.25 evening, and 7'0 flat late evening right before bed, I would just claim 7'0, granted i'm not that tall, lol! But it would sound wierd to claim 7' 0.75 or 7'0.25 and the reason I have a problem with morning height is because if I said i'm 7'1, that's a lie cuz i'd never reach that height, see what I mean. I think if ppl are gonna claim morning height, they need to atvvery least hit that height and not inflate. Don't say you're 5'7 if in the morning you are 5'6.75, cuz you never even hit that, see what I mean. Maybe i just look at it wierd tho.
Alex said on 16/Jan/09
Complex, whats your out of bed, midday and evening height? Your usual evening height which is probably your normal low unless you are working all day on your feet or doing heavy physical activity.
Complex said on 16/Jan/09
Well I generally go by like what I may be at 11 pm or right before bed, but i'm starting to come around to the fact that that's not the most accurate.
Alex said on 16/Jan/09
Complex, I bet some days you'll be about 1/4 inch at your lowest than other days. Do you go by a late night measuring or something like at 8pm or later?
Normally I am no lower than 6'0 by 6pm or later but at times I have gotten as low as 5'11.75 by the night and as high as 6'1 right out of bed. Sometimes I may hit my lowest hight at some point in the afternoon though.
Complex said on 16/Jan/09
Yeah but sometimes it seems like I downgrade more than that because I was judging on the lowest possible height that someone could go. Like you for instance alex I would of pegged at 6'0 but now i'm realizing that you're actually taller than that all day long so if I went by you're lowest of 6'0 then technically i'm downgrading you because most of the day you're more than that. I never saw it like that before but now it makes sense. I'm gonna continue to claim my lowest but i'm gonna try to judge celebs based on wat I think they are around lunchtime, it'll take some gettin used to but i'm gonna try :)
Alex said on 15/Jan/09
Complex, if you're downgrading is may only be 1/4 inch max since most of the time your evening height will be your lowest except for times being on your feet all day where it may dip just below your usual low.
Complex said on 15/Jan/09
I respect yours too glenn...and i'm not trying to be mean by judging their lowest heights I just do that because that's what I claim for me although after reading alex's last post i'm thinkin that maybe i'm downgrading even myself. But Glenn I really do think if I went by let's say lunchtime height then you would be right on most, I really do, I do disagree on some of your estimates and in the same token you disagree with some of mine, that's natural. But I don't just go by evening height I go by lowest height and now i'm starting to see that maybe that's a little unfair, so i'ma slowly try to start judging their mid-day heights but it may take me a while to adjust as it's just a habit to state their lowest heights as I do mine! Hope that clears things up guys.
glenn said on 15/Jan/09
complex-people know that.and cant tell may not be exact,but i know im for you guessing the lowest for celebs,please make that more clear.then its closer to reality for me too.evening height wise.thank you for an intelligent post.i respect your opinions alot.
Complex said on 14/Jan/09
I understand that completely alex and I agree...
Alex said on 14/Jan/09
Complex, for the most part my out of bed height is 6'0.75 and evening is 6'0. On a very good nights sleep I can hit 6'1 out of bed and on days I am on my feet very long, etc I can hit 5'11.75.
Alex said on 14/Jan/09
Complex, I claim my evening height too which is my lowest height but I dont agree on people claiming their very lowest height which will only happen at certain times for example being on their feet all day, doing heavy lifting, etc then measuring themselves at 8PM or later. If you measure yourself in the evening 5-7PM on a day you're more relaxing at home or not on your feet all day then thats your real lowest height. Know what I mean?

I dont claim my out of bed height because I am only that height for like 30 mins tops then my morning height is only for a little time too. Midday seems fair since midday height you will maintain for a good few hours at least.
Complex said on 14/Jan/09
Lol nah brad, i'm not gonna write a book on vin's height. Personally I think 5'11 max for him but doesn't concern me too much, he may very well be 6'0. I just think at 6'0 in the boots vin wears...he'd look an easy 6'2-6'3.

Alex I do agree that it's fair that rob goes by mid-day height. I have a tendancy (bad habit) (if you will) of judging celebs by their lowest possible heights, same as I do and i'm thinking of discussing what I think their mid-day heights likely are and maybe alot of ppl would be on the same page as me. But some ppl here are also arguing their morning heights when personally I don't think that's anyone's true height, it's a temporary height.
Alex said on 13/Jan/09
With all this max and lowest height I do think its fair how Rob does take the midday height which some people will say if your real height because you're not at your max but also not at your lowest.
Alex said on 13/Jan/09
No problem with going by evening height but I wouldn't suggest going by the very bare minimum meaning a height you'll only be lowest here and there like after being on your feet for hours during the day.
Brad said on 13/Jan/09
Norris & Vin both wear similar added height on their tootsies. Look at the photo. Comprende? Glenn & Complex need to write a book on Vin. Vin wears Frankensteiners because he wants to be 6'. He'd be close to 6' 3" in the custom whoppers at 6'.
TELLEM said on 12/Jan/09
for me its a tough estimate after 4 inches...i know i can get a pretty good estimate, but most likely i'd by off by .5 give or take.
Complex said on 12/Jan/09
Fair enough Glenn but it's ignorant to say that I wouldn't admitted to meeting celebs if I really had because in reality I wouldn't, just like i've never said my height on here cuz I don't want ppl to think my observations are based on my height, (ie. someone who is 5'6 trying to downgrade everyone to feel better about their height) And Glenn I don't downgrade and do agree with you and others like Rising alot of the time.

When I found out ones like you and Rising claim morning heights I realized we actually don't disagree that much cuz I go by lowest height, like Rob does, so that's what I do for celebs. So if I say Bob is 5'10 and ya'll say 5'11 we may be disagreeing by a quarter inch since ya'll do morning height and I evening height.

But I do see where it could be aggrivating but saying that you know a celebs height for sure just cuz you met them doesn't add up, yes I do agree you would know better than most since you have infact met them, but I have a friend that if you met you would say he's an easy 6'1 when in reality he's a strong 5'10 lift wearer and wears lifts so well you can literally never tell, ever, so ppl who meet him and don't know would say he's around 6'0 to 6'1 when reality is, in barefeet he's lower. If you met them all while they were in barefeet then I would think (tho it would still be hard) but I would think you could get a round-about estimate. I've never had someone guess my exact height, even while i'm standing in front of them barefoot, ppl always say i'm taller than I am (likely because they inflate they're own heights or because I look taller cuz i'm lean). But it's constant and guessing someone's EXACT height is hard, a round about estimate is safest to say and if someone disagrees and inch or two well that's really not as much as some ppl think. It's hard to tell an inch difference and 2 inches isn't much harder to tell either.

All I'm saying Glenn is other ppl have met these celebs too and guess them shorter and some guess taller, it's hard to nail down accurate height. Like if you read headlines of Beckham and Dicaprio it says journalists have met them and say beckham is 5'11 if that and Dicaprio is 5'10 if that, so if I used your logic I could say, Well a journalist that actually met them said it and met them in the flesh so they must be that height. Just like Depp's headline that says "even tho he's only 5'7". Height is tricky and hard to nail down even in the flesh, especially since there are different types of height, evening, mid-day, morning, out of bed, that's why we all have our opinions.

tellem downgrades hardcore
Alex said on 12/Jan/09
When meeting someone it can still be tough to be very precise but seeing them up close should give you a pretty good estimate. Also when you are within a few inches taller or shorter than them its easier. Well they can be a lot shorter and you can still get a good estimate but if they're too much taller its tough. For me when someone gets 4-5 inches taller its tough to get a very good estimate, sometimes even 3 inches taller than you it can be tough.
glenn said on 12/Jan/09
one last thing and a few others here are constant downgraders.but unlike someone else,your not a jerk.i like you.but your 2 inches off everyones straight across the board.i admit when im wrong.for years i thought brad pitt was 6ft.cause of you guys,i sometimes doubt 5-11.5-10 wouldnt shock me for pitt.have you ever once posted,hey,maybe your right glenn,or(never mind me)maybe you guys are are right? it may not seem it,but i nas at 5-10,ok,brad now admits he can look 5-10,but we both agree(him more than me)that i mightve been fooled with lifts.its been proven that he can look i was saying for 2 years.thats one of many reason im important to the site.did anyone realise he can look that tall before i brought it up? of course your case its more frustrating cause you never budge.tellem admits now,he thinks woody is 5-10,like i was saying all along,that he cant be 5-9 flat.i see 5-11.hell,like i said,i might be off an inch.but its an inch more correct than most of you.not saying tellem downgrades.honestly cant remember if he does.your last post was ignorant.not mine.sorry.unfair it alot of you have done to me in the past.but i would mess it up by exploding.not this time.
glenn said on 12/Jan/09
no assume that about me and jumped the gun here.i know you never met him cause you wouldve said you have.thats simple to figure out,why bring that up?put yourself in my shoes and you hear what you find nonsense over and over again(not saying you),when you know your would react the same.or worse.or you would react some sort of way at point is dont be so sure of yourselves.when you meet these celebs more than once,then you can be more sure of yourself.should i be at fault for being the #1 source of multiple celeb meetings during a 20 year span? i cant say how tall kurt russell is cause i never saw i insist that he is 5-8 like some or rather most of you do here?(not saying anyone says he is 5-8,just an example of downgrading).whenever i never saw a celeb,doesnt anyone notice i usually keep my mouth shut?(unless its a 5-9,5-10 mike tyson not matching his 5-11.5 arm reach).yet,me meeting these people is a sign of my arrogance and boasting to some.please complex,leave that at the would you like the site had i never arrived(or came back to)? i set some order on this would run amock with too many wrong guesses.(i championed the 5-10.75 stallone long ago and now alot agree.not all.if i wasnt around everyone would still think 5-7 to 5-9).no pics and no up to date stories? not to mention a-list names.not occasional or ancient stories others give.not knocking frank2s amazing the best height gauger the site has cause of my in person encounters.even rob will tell you that.better than dvd stills.sorry complex,dont mean to sound arrogant.but on 5 or 6 six of the same names i argue about,i am right.i wouldnt be so insistent on it like that confident.if im off,its by an inch,but they are an inch taller than all of you think.will smith at 6-1(viper at 5-11 to 6ft for him) when he told me he was 6-2.5,i have a photo with him,and he looks it to me,yet you wonder why i get upset sometimes? geez would you react if you met will? or anyone?and have to read this stuff daily from you guys?.some of you post intelligent points on how they are shorter.thats fine.but when you guys act like you know it all,and im arrogant for my experiences,please dont go have a right to post as much of your beliefs as you want.thats what the site is here for.i stated this many times.and even to you i think.but somehow,it seems you dont remember this or perhaps your looking for me to explode.give some of you a chance? when im reading 5-7 for stallone and 5-11 for will smith im not giving anyone a want to argue 5-9(sly) and 6-1(will) for both i can understand that done light on your next post please.i dont want to write a big post like this later today or tommorow.with all due is my day off a long week(i hope).dont want the stress.thanks.
Complex said on 12/Jan/09
Glenn I understand and I wasn't taking a shot at you, I will however say you're last statement was very ignorant because first of all, yes you have met alot of celebs but sometimes you take that for granted and assume we haven't met any. For example you said I have never seen him. How could you possibly know that?? I'm just curious cuz I doubt you know what I look like, how tall I am, where I live, or my real name even so how could you possibly know i've never seen Vin?

Now don't get me wrong cuz I mean no disrespect, you have seen alot of these guys and you have alot of them right, all I'm saying is it's hard to guage an exact height for anyone, I can look at someone and think "he's about 5'9" when really he may be 5'8, 5'8.75, 5'9.25 I mean it's hard to be precise. And I do admire you, you've met alot of celebs. But it's really degrading when you boast saying yu've met celebs and we haven't so therefore we must not know their true heights and you would know better than us since you've met them..and on top of that, you don't know that we haven't met them. Like you said Me or your friend never saw him and neither has anyone here, how could u possible know that? There could be ppl here that's met him, has pictures and just doesn't wanna plaster their face on the internet. I mean no disrespect i'm just saying, we all have our opinions but sometimes you shoot them down saying we must be wrong cuz you ASSUME we haven't seen them. I mean think bout it, that's the equivelent of me saying "i've seen matt damon and i know his height and ya'll don't cuz ya'll have never seen him so ya'lls opinions don't matter" when I don't even know who's seen him or not. This is a forum and we're allowed our opinions. Heck I may be wrong, but i'm judging evening height for one and I think ya'll shoot too high sometimes, just like ya'll think I shoot low, I think ya'll shoot high, mainly due to lifts,boots,elevators, and the fact that ppl always claim their MAX!

honestly think about how many ppl here claim their max, almost the whole site does, why would celebs be any different, celebs would actually be worse cuz their in the public eye and would want to look taller. That's all i'm saying is give us a chance.

I mean honestly if Rob said "only ppl who have met the celebs can comment on their heights." well then in that case Glenn you and a few others might be the only ones commenting but I ask you this, how much fun would that be? There would be no debate. I mean picture vin diesel's page and take every name that's posted on here and make them all Glenn, then ask yourself how much fun it would be if only you posted since you've met them? I mean we're allowed opinions too I hope..

Vin is exactly my height - 182 cm.

Alex said on 10/Jan/09
A 4-5 inch difference is when it starts to get tougher to tell how much taller is someone than you.
RisingForce said on 10/Jan/09
That's a good example of why I think Chuck Norris is atleast 5-9.

If Chuck was in cowboy boots with 2 inch heels and 1 inch lifts inside and Vin was in 1 inch dress shoes then Chuck would be 6-0 in cowboy boots and Vin at half an inch or an inch taller would be 6-0.5 or 6-1 in dress shoes making him 5-11.5 or 6-0 barefoot.

Plus it's only one picture and illusions can happen in pictures.
glenn said on 10/Jan/09
your not making any sense complex.who said vin was 6-2 with norris? obviously that night vin wasnt anywhere near 6-2.but norris wasnt near his real height your questioning my gauging,plus the fact i had witnesses with me that all agreed vin was 6-2 cause of the help of his monster cowboy like boots?.come on complex,you downgrade too much,but you arent your just saying i dont know what im talking about in a round a bout way,when i met the guy several times.he is around 6ft.nothing shorter than 5-11.5.thats like my friend texting me a week earlier asking me vins height.he swore he was short.i literally bump into vin a week later and called my friend with vin 30 feet away from me(at that point,not for the gauging) to tell him,"your not gonna believe who is in front of me and is 6-2 in boots"'i also told him he has to be and my friend never saw him.neither has anyone here.
anonymous said on 10/Jan/09
Just under 6 foot and chuck norris is tall. Around 5 foot 10.
Complex said on 9/Jan/09
I highly doubt Vin ever reaches 6'2, Glenn if you're 5'8 then it would be hard to tell that Vin hit 6'2. To me once there is a 4 inch difference it's hard to distinguish an exact height, you can get an estimate, but it's hard to be precise. I'm just saying the height difference woulda been too much to be certain. But if he's 6'2 then Barry Pepper is 6'1.5 and Seth Green is 5'8 and John Malkovich is 6'3 or 6'4 cuz Malkovich was taller than Diesel in KnockAround guys. Vin might be a weak 5'11..or a strong 5'11, but he's definately not 6'0 flat!

Glenn wouldn't you say that 5'8.5 Norris woulda had to have some pretty big lifts and cowboy boots to reach the same height as the alleged "6'2" Diesel that you saw?? Even if Vin were 6'0 for a 5'8.5 guy to reach that height would be pretty amazing, Cuz if Vin were 6'0 barefoot, then in shoes he'd be over. But even if Vin were 6'0 barefoot, then for 5'8.5 Norris to hit that height, he'd have to really cram them cowboys boots!
Danny said on 9/Jan/09
lol Brad you are hilarious!!
RisingForce said on 9/Jan/09
I've seen Christie Brinkley in person, she's no less than 5'9". Chuck was as tall as her in the total gym commercial.
Brad said on 9/Jan/09
I bet Vin wears army boots on the beach. No, dress shoes for Vin are Bayside $hit kickers. You can see them on Frankenstein. Look at Chuck with Christie Brinkley in their commercial. He's never looked shorter. He couldn't wear cowboy boots with a gym outfit. Sly would.
glenn said on 9/Jan/09
complex-did you forget i bumped into vin recenty and he was 6-2 in big boots?so he has to be around 6ft.norris is notorious for boots too.he is or was 5-10.maybe he is 5-10.seemed 5-10ish to me in cowboy hat and boots when i saw a 5-8ish illusion.
RisingForce said on 8/Jan/09
Complex I said Chuck was LIKELY in cowboy boots with lifts. Not that he defintley was. It was well known that we wore them on Walker Texas Ranger.
RisingForce said on 8/Jan/09
Complex, Norris is more likely astrong 5-9 or possibly a bit over. He often had 2 inches on 5-7 1/2 Bruce Lee back in the 70's and Chuck seems to be one of the rare guys who hasn't lost much height.
Complex said on 8/Jan/09
Well I dunno about the norris-diesel stuff but he sure looked 1' tops of 5'9-5'10 barry pepper and that was in his huge boots.

But I will say that Norris is listed 5'8.5, not 5'9 and how do we know he's in cowboy boots with lifts?? Did you make that up Rising? Cuz you can't see their feet in the picture. If Vin were 5'10 and Norris in Cowboy boots that would make sense, but Norris bein 5'8.5 and Vin 6'0 wouldn't make sense, those would have to be some MONSTER boots!
RisingForce said on 8/Jan/09
Brad it's one picture. If you again it seems that Vin isn't standing his straightest and Vin is still about half an inch taller.
Click Here

Norris is likely 5-9 as Glenn said and in cowboy boots with lifts while Vin is probably in dress shoes.
glenn said on 8/Jan/09
5-9 norris in lifts will match a 5-11.5 ,6ft vin a wrong part of a floor.
Brad said on 8/Jan/09
Look at him with Chuck, that's not 6'. You need an expert custom footwear guy to explain how 4" can be added.
RisingForce said on 5/Jan/09
I'm not that familiar with Paul Walker in general so I won't try to guess his height.

The only thing I can think of ever placing Vin under 6-0 are the Chuck Norris picture, Glenn's first sighting that put him at 5-11, 5-11.5 and the recent pictures of Vin and his girlfriend.

I'm sorry but 3 things aren't enough. And 2 of those times he gave the illusion of 5-11, 5-11.5 which isn't far off from 6 feet.

Rob has him listed right.
Alex said on 5/Jan/09
I thought he looked 5'11 in Fast and the Furious. Now Paul Walker could have passed for as much as 6'2 in that film.
glenn said on 5/Jan/09
possible leung.they must have a different style then.i finally tried the common style.not sure how extravagant a height difference there was.taller,no doubt.but not big lifts.

Complex, yea but I think taking mid day-late afternoon is very fair to take because late evening you can sometimes dip a bit below your lowest height.
Complex said on 3/Jan/09
I buy that alex, I really do, although I think those are their mid-day heights, late in the evening they are likely a tad shorter, I think Walker is 6'1 late evening height...

Brad said on 3/Jan/09
I don't think Pacino cares outside of movie sets. Those things Rising posted by the police car are monsters with the wedge hidden. I bet he gets fed up with people slinging "Scarface" stuff for him to sign but that's where the cheese is for dealers. I need him on my original Scarface poster. I got most of other leads to sign it. His autograph is like Costner's, an initial.

geez.never knew he wore lifts risingforce.great work.however i did see him close to my height one time in funny shoes.
RisingForce said on 2/Jan/09
So you think Vin Diesel and Chuck Norris are about the same height Brad?

I'm not sure that Pacino doesn't care about his height though.
Click Here

Even at 68 his sneakers still look swollen. He wore lifts in the Godfather films, big heels in ...And Justice For All, huge heels in Scarface, huge heels in the Devil's Advocate. Pacino obviously trys to look taller, but when you're 5-5 you'll look short even in big heels.
Ben said on 2/Jan/09
I cant see him being 6ft. He looks 5'11 tops.
Brad said on 2/Jan/09
Burt Reynolds wore the most ridiculous footwear ever...gigantic heels, stilts and even wedged up sneakers of hilarious kind that only Roger Daltrey/Downey Jr. have nuggets to wear. Downey Jr. is next, those sneaker things are funny. Vin can do stunts as Madonna can dance and run around for 2+ hours in 4" customs and look like she's in dancer pumps. Norris & Vin have similar size lift in inches. Both wear big ones. At 6' 1" plus Vin boot crushers he'd own Norris big time. He'd be 6' 3" every single day. Vin has serious height issues in his brain like Sly does...funny how Pacino & Hoffman don't really care.
Complex said on 1/Jan/09
He's prolly 5'10 and a bit in the evening and maybe 5'11 morning height, but 5'11 is him at best!

A 5'11 Vin would put Walker at pushing 6'2 which seems to be right.
RisingForce said on 1/Jan/09
Hugh, Vin is not 6-2. That's for sure. He wouldn't claim 6-1 if he was. Glenn, Leung and Rob are all right. He's 6-0 or 5-11.5 at the very least.
RisingForce said on 1/Jan/09
Funny post Brad and I agree that Vin's footwear can look silly sometimes but Robert Downey Jr. owns the title of most ridiculous footwear.I can't think of another celebrity that would try stuffing 2 inch lifts into normal sneakers not built for lifts. He pretty much falls out of his shoes at times!

Burt Reynolds also looked like he was walking on stilts in the 70's.

I'm curious though about what you mean when you say him and Norris cancel eachother out.
glenn said on 31/Dec/08
that cause you never saw him alex.
Hugh said on 31/Dec/08
Vin is 6ft to 6ft2.
Ed(1) said on 31/Dec/08
The problem to me with Vin being more like 5ft10 or shorter, is how the hell does he perform all his stunts and action scenes while running around in supposed 3-4" lifts? I don't dount he might pull out some bigger heels for events and talkshows where he might be made to look shorter(Conan O'Brien for example), but for movies that seems pretty far-fetched.

In the Norris pic I'm guessing he's wearing lifts and Diesel is in more normal footwear. I don't know... it's strange?! If Norris is 5ft8.5 with a 2+ inch heeled cowboy boot and a possible 1" lift inside, he'd be 5ft11.5 or so, and Vin looks to have about a 0.5" or so on Norris.

5ft11 minimum for Diesel sounds about right, and 6ft1-6ft2 in his 'special' boots.
Alex said on 31/Dec/08
I can't go as high as 6'0 for Vin. If he's 6'0 then Paul Walker is pushing 6'3 which he's not IMO. Vin is probably 5'10.5-5'11 and Paul is 6'1-6'1 1/2.
Brad said on 31/Dec/08
Vin's dress shoes when he knows he's going to be Papped is lifts of the giant kind. Norris & Vin cancel out and we get Vin's height. Vin wears the most ridiculous footwear of any celeb except Bozo The Clown or Ronald McDonald.
RisingForce said on 30/Dec/08
Here's the Chuck Norris picture again.
Click Here

We can't see their footwear and Vin is half an inch taller. Norris is about 5-9 and for all we know he could be in his 3 inch cowboy boot/lift combo. Vin could be in dress shoes too.

If Norris is 5-9 and in his cowboy boots/lifts and Vin is 5-11.5 and in normal shoes then that makes sense in that picture.
glenn said on 30/Dec/08
if he isnt 6ft,then i saw him a half inch or more taller than my 5-11 friend,in more normal ill settle with 5-11.5 min.6ft max.
Complex said on 30/Dec/08
5'11 max, 6'0 barefoot is just way too high for Diesel.
Brad said on 29/Dec/08
He can't be 6', he was the exact same height as Chuck Norris in a photo. Norris would be over 6' 2" in boots. Anjunagirl is correct with the line-up FATF photo. He's rockin' in big boys. Can't wait for the next FATF. Those crazies are on I-10 at midnight hauling A by Fontana.
glenn said on 29/Dec/08
leung would know for many reasons.for one,i saw vin look an astonishing 6-2 or more in big boots 6 to 8 weeks ago.his body looked nothing short of a 6ft man.2 years ago i couldnt figure out if he was 5-11.5 or 6ft when i saw him he is 6ft if he gave me an illusion of near 6-3.
Danny said on 29/Dec/08
Leung how the hell would you know?
miko said on 29/Dec/08
I think he's 5"11 flat, 5"11 at the max. Add a 3" wedge under his toes and he can look 6"2.

Catch him on a beach barefoot to find the truth.

Anjunagirl said on 28/Dec/08
Well, Rising Force, fun to read your patronising reply.

I don't "claim" his 6'1" height is evidence he is only 5'10", just offering to show how the difference can be achieved. I don't know if he is personally claiming 6'1" or not, having only what I've read on here to go by. I have no idea whether he measures himself in boots and then adds an inch, if you read my post properly you'll see I was suggesting that's how it could add up.

However I would refer to your post of 17 December where you state you think he is 6' in bare feet:

"Complex, learn to read. I said he can appear that height in boots. I think he's 6 foot barefoot."

He patently cannot be six foot barefoot as he only just achieves around that height in lifts. If you generously say there is only one inch of height(but probably more) between him and Paul Walker in the photo I linked to in my last post, and if you allow that Paul is 6'2", then you can easily see how Vin is only 5'10" -ish.

Which in itself is all assumption. I prefer to believe my brother (5'8") who spent some time with him in the course of his work, and could see for himself that Vin was only scraping around 6' because of his big boots. But anyone with even the tiniest sense of size and proportion can tell by watching any of his movies, that he's not six foot - or is that just a "female" thing? Sorry, my turn to be patronising!
Midget said on 28/Dec/08

I personally think Vin is a pretty tall guy but I'm sure he wears lifts. He's among the obvious lift wearers like Sly, Brad Pitt and Robert Downey Jr.

Those boots are massive, he may even be getting 3.5" from those with lifts, atleast 3 inches.
Complex said on 27/Dec/08
Statham is really more 5'8 so them saying 6'0 in that movie must of just been "the hollywood effect" to make the movie better. For Vin I think he could get away with 5'11 even though in the evening I think he's more in the 5'10 range, but 6'0-6'1 is a stretch...
RisingForce said on 27/Dec/08
Vin and his 5-10 girlfriend

She's in heels and he's in dress shoes but she's atleast an inch taller there.

The tallest that could put him there considering footwear is about 5-11.5 and the shortest is about 5-10.

Nope, nothing that weird about a 5-11.5, 6-0 guy claiming 6-1.
anonymous said on 27/Dec/08
He always looks 6 foot. In the movie death race they said jason statham was 6 foot when he is 5 foot 9. Vin diesel is more built than him and he looks taller too. 5 foot 11 at the lowest and 6 foot at the highest.

Complex said on 24/Dec/08
He's 5'10 and maybe a tad in the evening and likely closer to 5'11 in the morning, 6'0 came from way out in left field and he musta claimed 6'1 because his arms are so big and he's pretty strong so he feels 6'1, but just cuz you feel that height doesn't mean you are, watch knock around guys, you'll be astonished to see him barely taller than 5'9 barry pepper and that's in huge boots! If I were having a good day and felt like letting celebs have a little more height than I think they are, I would say Vin might be 5'11,but I wouldn't go over that!
t. said on 24/Dec/08
I am 5 7 1/2 and standing next to him at the airport....he was barely as tall as me. No way no how is he 6'......
anonymous said on 24/Dec/08
He looks 6 foot to me. In fast and furious there are two inches difference between him and 6 foot 2 paul walker. He is not overrated, he has a proportionate body. Maybe he does only work out on his arms but they are huge. They r like coming out of his shirt. He is a good actor who doesnt get good reviews. I want his body one day. He is naturally built. He doesnt use enhancements.
RisingForce said on 24/Dec/08
What a terrible post Anjunagirl

So you say his 6-1 claim is evidence that he's 5-10? That makes no sense. How would you know that he'd measure himself in boots and then add an inch? His 6-1 claim is really irrelevant to how tall he his because he isn't 6-1 and we have no idea where he got the 6-1 figure from.

He could be giving himself an inch or 2 over his barefoot, he could have measured himself in some kind of footwear or he could have just made up the 6-1 figure and got it from nowhere.
Brad said on 24/Dec/08
Same height as Paul Walker? He's wearing Munsters. Walker took Vin's advice and had flats to make Vin taller. Those Munsters have at least 3" (2 out, 1 wedge) taking him to new heights. Fits. I agree, he is a mean machine, don't kid yerself, he's a built like a one man army.
Anjunagirl said on 23/Dec/08

Anjunagirl, of course he's shorter than he claims. He claims to be 6-1 and nobody is saying he is. We all know he wears lifts too but that's how he gives some people the impression that he's 6-3, 6-4. He's 6-0." ????

Ok 6'1" is his claim, minus an inch for exageration, minus 2" for his lifts brings him down to 5'10". Now look at this:

I'd say a good 2.5" shorter than Paul Walker, who is supposedly 6'2". Minus the (at least 1") heels on his boots and voila, there's the 5'10" I said before. He IS NOT 5'11" or over. Dream on.
MD said on 23/Dec/08
Yeah, Vin has a decent body, but it's nothing special. He's big-boned and solid, but that's about it. He doesn't really have any defintion, at all.
RisingForce said on 23/Dec/08
I already have a really low body % with my veins always sticking out. The problem is I'm really small in general, although to get a build like Sly's that actually might be a blessing in disguise. He got skinny with a really low body fat % and put on muscle ounce by ounce. That's what I'd like to do. The problem for me is genetics, Sly at his thinnest in his adult life was 155....I've never been close to that.

I think he got too big in Rambo 3, he added 20 pounds of solid muscle onto his Rambo 2 build.

I'd never want to have a build like Vin honestly. I'd rather have a slimmer athletic build even like Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon 1.

Kurt Russell must have worked out like a madman for Solider too. At 46 he transformed his body and he was really ripped but still lean. He looked much better than Vin too.
leonari said on 22/Dec/08
Vin has barely ANY definition if you ask me. His body fat must be over 10 % probably around 12-13%. Sly in Rocky III was around 3.8 % which already a bit unhealthy. You shouldn't go below 4 %.
Complex said on 22/Dec/08
Personally i'm into the more thin builds, like Pitt from fight club, but leung is right, reynolds in blade trinity or amityville horror even had a very solid build, very ripped. Vin isn't as much as a ripped guy but he does have rockets for arms, that's what makes him look so big, is his arms. Rambo was shredded in Rambo 2 but a little too much for the way i would want to look, when veins start poking out, it's a little much, but i agree that low body fat percentage is essential in a good build.
RisingForce said on 22/Dec/08
I agree Leung. Sly in Rambo 2 is what I'd want to look like. His body fat % is low and he's lean but he's ripped.

He trained with Franco Columbu for that movie and it showed.

Vin Diesel has nowhere near that much definition.

Vin is just a big strong guy, his physique is nothing special.

A genuinely impressive physique would be Ryan Reynolds in Blade Trinity or Stallone in Rambo 2.

anonymous said on 21/Dec/08
He is the most built guy i have ever seen. He has the build of a 6 footer. He is ripped and built. In all his movies, he looks like a 6 footer.

Complex says on 17/Dec/08
Rising Force I can read and you said he looks like a legit 6'2-6'3 guy in boots, if someone were a legit 6'2-6'3, then there a legit 6'2-6'3, if they look that height "in boots" then saying "legit" would't make sense. Legit means they are legitamately that height. You said he looks like a legit 6'2-6'3 guy in boots, you're wording was confusing, it woulda been better to say he looks 6'2-6'3 in boots but when you say the words "legit 6'2-6'3 guy" whether you say boots or not ppl assume you are saying "legit 6'2-6'3 guy". A legit 6'2 6'3 guy can wear boots too, we coulda took it as he were a legit 6'2,6'3 guy that wears boots and reaches higher. But non-the-less he's not 6'0. 5'11 I could buy, 5'10 too. 6'0 iswishful thinking...

I meant when wearing the boots he looks like a legit 6'2" guy meaning he reaches atleast 6'3" in them because a legit 6'2" guy(Samuel L Jackson) would be 6'3" in normal shoes and Vin was atleast as tall as him in those pictures, maybe taller.

I don't rule out Vin's boots giving near 4" but still there's no way he's under 5'11".
Complex said on 18/Dec/08
Lol brad, great saying "tread of a firestone 14incher". Vin is 5'10 or in that region (evening). Knockaround guys, he's 0.5 inches taller than Barry Pepper & That's in his huge boots, I've heard anything from flat 5'9 for Barry Pepper to 5'10 max, so take it for what it's worth.
Ed(1) said on 18/Dec/08
So Brad do you think he's around 5ft10, and gets 4 inches of lift in his boots? That seems a little extreme! He was around the same height as Paul Walker(6ft2) in TFATF, and Walker was wearing Converse All-Stars with 0.5" heel to Vin's big boots. I can see him getting maybe 2.5" in lift from his custom boots, but that's about it. The guy would be barely able to walk let alone run and perform stunts in 4" heeled Frankenstein boots!

5ft11 barefoot and 6ft1+ seems about as low as I'd go for Vin.
Brad said on 17/Dec/08
Ed hasn't seen Vin with Chuck Norris who lives in cowboy boots. Vin must have found a cobbler fixing him up with giant custom wedges in 2" heeled cowboy boots. I wonder if he's falling forward with each step. I wonder if people know they are sick of him in Munster boots with tread off a Firestone 14 incher.

I can see 5ft11-6ft for Vin, and near 6ft2 in his boots! These 5ft9-5ft10 claims really seem a little low for the guy. It's obvious he likes to be taller, hence the giant heeled boots he's always seen with, but I have a hard time seeing him under 5ft11.
Reality Check said on 17/Dec/08
Guys, stop arguing and watch Babylon A.D.
Brad said on 17/Dec/08
6' means the November 29th photo of Vin with Chuck Norris has Chuck being 6'. Chuck has never seen 6' in his life, or close to it barefoot, neither has Vin, king of the giant customs 24/7 and 365.
RisingForce said on 17/Dec/08
Complex, learn to read. I said he can appear that height in boots. I think he's 6 foot barefoot.
Midget said on 17/Dec/08
Glenn, I still think he is between 180cm and 182cm and just under 6'.With Vin always wearing those chunky boots it is really hard to guage his barefoot height. My exactly 6' friend met him in a club when he was wearing what appeared to be dress shoes and he looked 183cm-184cm. Only an estimate of course but food for thought.
Complex said on 17/Dec/08
Rising Force Vin at a legit 6'2-6'3 really is one of the funnier things i've heard on this site, that would make Paul Walker like 6'5-6'6 and Samuel L. Jackson in that case would also be like 6'6. He's 5'10-5'10.5, in huge boots with lifts prolly hits 6'0 or slightly over. He was taller than 5'9 something Barry Pepper by 0.5-1 inch and that's in his hefty boots!! Vin @ legit 6'2-6'3 is crazy, legit means those would be his evening heights, so if that were true rising force then you're saying it's possible that he's a legit 6'3 and in the morning would be about 6'3.75, thats getting absurd. 5'11 max & that's generous. Of course im refering to barefoot evening height.
glenn said on 16/Dec/08
vin was 6-2 in boots recently when i saw him.the man is 6ft.
TELLEM said on 16/Dec/08
i dnt even think samuel jackson is 6'2...more like 6'1 peak! look at him w/ 6'0 john travolta in pulp if disel can reach 6'1.5 in his lifts then hes 5'10.5
RisingForce said on 16/Dec/08
He looks like a legit 6-2, 6-3 guy next to Samuel L Jackson. Of course the boots add a ton of height but he's not under 5-11.
Complex said on 15/Dec/08
Vin would is probably closer to 5'9 than 6'0! Not saying he's 5'9, just saying if he were measured he'd be closer to 5'9 than closer to 6'0. I think he's 5'10. 6'0 or maybe a tad over in huge boots. Seriously guys, his boots alone are enough to realize he's not 6'0! Since he only looks 6'0 in them.
RisingForce said on 15/Dec/08
In boots Vin can look very tall.

I Agree with that anonymous dude. Vin Diesel is a superhuman being that can alter his height at will. Me, well, I'm stuck at 6ft5 and can't really do anything about it...
Ed(1) said on 14/Dec/08
Rob, how much lift do you think Vin gets from his various monster heeled boots?

Editor Rob
some of the style look 1.6-1.7 maybe, they have a 1/4 inch above the typical thick 1.4 inch boot. I don't know if he'd bother having anything inside as when he wears normal shoes he doesn't drop hugely.
Viper said on 14/Dec/08
Hugh, I think everyone is laughing at your 6-0 and 6-1 claim. If that were true Vin would be looking 6-3-6-4 in his huge ass boots.
Reality Check said on 14/Dec/08
Melanie Thierry is 5ft 3in and when she's in the bathroom, face to face with Diesel in Babylon A.D. well it's the same difference between me and my mom and I'm 5ft 10.5in and my mom is 5ft 3in..There's no shoes, etc. to make him taller in that scene..He's 5ft 10in - 5ft 11in TOP.
Hugh said on 13/Dec/08
I'd say between 6ft and 6ft1. Definately not 5ft10 or 5ft11 lol.
anonymous said on 13/Dec/08
I believe vin has super powers, possibly gama ray, and can increase his height at will.....anywhere from 5'10" to 6'4"....The Incredible Vin!!!
Complex said on 13/Dec/08
I'm sorry but Vin never gives the impression of 6'3 or 6'4, if ppl are assuming cuz he's built and always plays the tough guy in movies therefore he must be 6'3 or 6'4 then that just doesn't make sense. Before I was concerned with heights I woulda thought him to be taller cuz of his build and the movies he plays in generally are in his favor height was, but after comparison to walker, jackson, and 5'9ish-5'10max barry pepper, 5'10 is certainly possible. Maybe he's 5'10 barefoot, 6'0 in his boots and in his hugest boots with lifts might graze 6'1. I mean he was 0.5 inch max taller than 5'9-5'10 barry pepper and that was with him in boots and pepper in casual. Makes me wonder if he doesn't go a tad under 5'10 in the evening! Either way he's far from 6'0 barefoot!
Lmeister said on 12/Dec/08
I don't understand obsessing over size. Vin is not a small dude and has good built when he is in shape, though lately he has not been in top shape. I think a guy who looks like Jason Statham muscular, but still really athletic is cooler look than a beefcake munster look :)
RisingForce said on 12/Dec/08
I agree with you Leung. Wahlberg looked to have less body fat and he seemed to be more cut. I'd rather be built like Mark was actually.
Viper said on 11/Dec/08
Vin isnt THAT much bigger than Wahlberg actually. Vin's shoulders and chest dont match his massive arms. And I bet Mark beats him lower body wise. Vin should weigh a lot more with how big his arms are.
Leung said on 11/Dec/08
Why you laughing Clay? If you compare Wahlberg and Vin Diesel at their physical peak, then Wahlberg craps all over Vin Diesel.
Diesel only had size, but Wahlberg had size and conditioning. Diesel
RisingForce said on 11/Dec/08
Anjunagirl, of course he's shorter than he claims. He claims to be 6-1 and nobody is saying he is. We all know he wears lifts too but that's how he gives some people the impression that he's 6-3, 6-4. He's 6-0.
Clay said on 10/Dec/08
HAHAH Vin is way bigger than Wahlberg.
Anjunagirl said on 9/Dec/08
I've added this comment before on here but it seems to have dropped off. My brother was assistant manager at The Strand theatre in London back in 2002, just after XXX came out Vin went to watch Dame Judi Dench at that theatre. My brother, who is 5'9", had the job of meeting, greeting and showing him to his seat, and spent quite some time with him. He said Vin was barely much taller than him, and was smaller than he appears on screen. I'm afraid, RisingForce, that Vin is actually quite a few hairs, if not a whole wig, under 5'11". There were several gossipy articles in UK daily papers around that time, all along the lines of "what Hollywood action star isn't as tall as he says" and reporting that staff at Vin's hotel were saying his shoes had seriously large lifts (he had left them outside the door for cleaning ...)
RisingForce said on 8/Dec/08
Vin is not a hair under 5'11".
Complex said on 5/Dec/08
That was me that posted the big post about knockaround guys and barry pepper, forgot my name, but look at this guys, Diesel was 1/2 inch max over 5'9-5'10 Pepper and Diesel was in huge boots. This really makes me question Diesel. Diesel was also under Malkovich listed at 6'0 but could be less, I haven't really did too much research on Malkovich but Diesel at the very best time of the day could be 5'11, but 5'10 range is better for him. Like I said, w/o his boots, he might be under Pepper! The boots were huge! He also looked small in Triple X compared to Jackson and pretty much everyone, lol! There's a club scene where they go to throw Diesel out of the room and two big guys stand up to bounce him out and Diesel looks extremely small compared to them, not muscle small cuz he's built, but definately not 6'0!
Viper said on 5/Dec/08
I can buy just under 5-10 as well.
RisingForce said on 5/Dec/08
Vin could maybe get 3.25", 3.5" if he's lucky with lifts and those boots.
Davidoff said on 5/Dec/08
He is 177cm
Viper said on 5/Dec/08
And he could have lifts inside those boots.

The Chuck Norris photo is proof positive he isn't near 6'. Look at the 3" big tread whoppers Rising posted. He's like Downey Jr.: screw stealth, here I am wearing whoppers. I haven't seen that style since The Clash in '82.

Clay said on 4/Dec/08
It could be, who am I to say it definitely isnt, but they would all have to be chronic lift wearers to be those heights.
Viper said on 3/Dec/08
Avery could be 6-3. Also I think there is a small chance Vin could be under 5-10 because of knock around guys. This guy lives in those huge boots, yet he didnt even look 6-0 in that movie.
Viper said on 3/Dec/08
Those certaintly look right Clay. I could be marginally off on Will but the others are very correct.
Viper said on 3/Dec/08
Yeah, Vin barely looked taller than 5-10 Barry Pepper in that movie in his huge boots.
RisingForce said on 3/Dec/08
Anonymous, if Vin was standing straight in that first pictue you'd notice a bigger difference. As far as the Norris picture well Norris probably isn't 5-8 either.
Anonymous said on 3/Dec/08
Ok 5'10 is not a stretch, obviously you guys haven't watched knockaround guys, Vin is no more than a quarter inch, half inch max over questionable 5'10 barry pepper and 5'10 andy davoli. And keep in mind he wears his trademark boots in the film, this really makes me wonder...

Check this, Diesel in his usual monster boots, 5'9ish-5'10 max barry pepper plus diesel has road advantage, plenty through-out they movie he was no more than 1' taller than pepper if that.
Click Here

Seriously I doubt he hits 5'11 much less 6'0. I would but just under 5'11,like 5'10.75, but that's the most.

***Oh and about this "why would a 5'10 guy claim 6'1" well we can drop that, reason 1 he's a star, reason 2, everyone inflates and I swear I know ppl that inflate as much as four inches. Matter a fact I have a cousin, claims 5'10, he's 5'6 prolly evening, 5'6.5 on a good day. Now someone couldn't argue that my cousin must be atleast 5'9 otherwise he wouldn't claim that high cuz obviously he's lying by more than that.

I know another guy, 5'11 maximum but likely 5'10.75, claims 6'1. I mean I could go on all day. I mean yeah, assuming the whole world is honest and ok withtheir height then it would seem absurd, but obviously that's not the case. Diesel does look taller than he is prolly cuz he's an action star well built and portrays the tough guy in alot of his movies. Makes sense.

Oh & this is my personal opinion, but P.Swayze is 5'8. He's always been short, watch Road House, Ghost, Fatherhood, he is seriously 5'8 no where close to 5'10. Maybe someone could talk me into believing 5'9 morning height for Swayze but that's at best.

Oh & how can anyone argue with the Norris picture, a 6'0 guy would never appear eye level with a 5'8 guy, so even if it is only one pic, it's one revealing pic. What's wierd is there's alot of talk that chuck may be in the 5'7 range, either way where would that put vin!! so 5'10 is not out of the question!
Clay said on 2/Dec/08
Liotta must be 5'8.6 Viper.

Bahaha who considers you as accurate as they come viper? You and your mother? According to you:

Diesel - 5'10
Smith - 6'0
Damon - 5'8
Timberlake - 5'10.5???

Smarten up. And Rob, why do you let Viper take cheap shots at you all the time? Saying things like ''Rob has half a brain'' and ''Even Rob wouldn't add an inch for him!''.
RisingForce said on 1/Dec/08
The only thing that points to Vin being around 5-10 is the Chuck Norris picture, I can't think of anything else.
Viper said on 1/Dec/08
Swayze could be as low as 5-9. 6-0 barefoot for Vin is ridiculous. The highest you could go for him is 5-11, and hes probably not even that. Take away his big shoes or boots and he shrinks big time to 5-10.
RisingForce said on 1/Dec/08
Viper, the fact that you think Vin Diesel and Patrick Swayze are the same height shows you have no concept of height. How you can estimate both at 5'10" is beyond me especially since Swayze is 5-9ish and Vin is around 6 feet.

Patrick Swayze always looks average at best/kind of short. Vin Diesel looks tall.

Vin at 5'10" is insane.
glenn said on 30/Nov/08
viper is horrendous.i usually keep quite about him.but he mentioned i could be 5-7 last im gonna open my mouth.

There is a better chance Will is 6-1 than Vin at 6-0. Vin at 6-0 is the ultimate pipe dream.
RisingForce said on 30/Nov/08
Yeah Leonari. Vin is about 6 feet and at worst Will Smith is 6'1" but he's probably taller.

Here's a good shot of his boots

Probably give close to 3 inches but he looks really tall in them.
Viper said on 30/Nov/08
Actually most consider me as accurate as they come. Vin isnt over 5-10 1/2 barefoot. 6-0 is insane for him. Hes been needing a downgrade on here more than anyone on this site. And Ive supplied about 1,000,000 pictures that show Will could be 5-11. Doesnt mean he is but he certaintly looks that a lot of the time.
Leonari said on 30/Nov/08
viper: stop it. Your estimates are soo off it hurts. 5'10 Vin Diesel, 5'11-6'0 Will smith. Dear god you are bad at judging heights. Man...incredible.
RisingForce said on 29/Nov/08
Where does this 5-10 stuff come from anyway. 5-11 is the lowest I've heard for Vin outside of this site. a 5-10 guy wouldn't claim 6-1 or get called 6-3 and 6-4.
RisingForce said on 29/Nov/08
5-10 barefoot is crazy, he'd be by far the tallest looking 5-10 guy ever. let me get this straight Viper, you think 5-9 Patrick Swayze is 5-10 but you think 6-0 Vin Diesel is 5-10 too?
Viper said on 29/Nov/08
5-10 barefoot seems right for Vin. Maybe 6-0 or a little over in his huge boots.
RisingForce said on 29/Nov/08
Here is the picture with Chuck Norris
Click Here

Vin looks maybe a half inch taller although 1 picture is not enough to suggest Vin is around 5'10". We don't know their footwear but the picture is surprising.

I really don't know where the 5'10" stuff comes from for Vin, is it that one picture? 5'10" seems absurd, even 5'11" is too low. Vin seems to be 6 feet, even considering his boots.
RisingForce said on 28/Nov/08
I thought Chuck had 2" on Bruce. Chuck is probably 5'9.5" and in his biggest cowboy boots with lifts. Vin could be 6'0" and could have been in normal shoes.
anonymous said on 26/Nov/08
I'll stay with 6 foot.
Viper said on 25/Nov/08
The most I could buy him at is 5-11. But 5-10 is probably closer to the truth. Poissibly over 6-0 in his huge boots.
RisingForce said on 25/Nov/08
glenn says on 20/Nov/08
6-2 when i saw him big boots.6ft min barefoot.

I believe it, he looks like a 6'0" guy but that must mean Chuck Norris is still around 5'9"-5'10" and has 3" boots. Vin must have been in normal shoes that day.
Alex said on 22/Nov/08
I wouldn't say he has arms like a 250lber. But if he had big legs and a bigger chest and shoulders I could def see him weighing around 230lbs.

Nah, hes not that big at all If you take away his massive arms. And they are massive. He should be 250 pounds plus with his arms.

Vin's chest isn't very big either. His shoulders aren't broad either, nor is his neck big. His legs also look leanish, but his arms are big.
