How tall is Vin Diesel

Vin Diesel's Height

5ft 11.5in (181.6 cm)

American actor best known for roles in films such as the Fast and the Furious series, Pitch Black, XXX, Boiler Room, The Iron Giant and Saving Private Ryan. Vin has been described at a mind-bogglingly optimistic "6ft 4ins". He has claimed "I'm 6ft 1" on a radio show, but wears thick heeled boots a lot of the time.

While I don't THINK Vin had extra lifts with those black boots on that occasion in 2003, those boots are still going to make him look taller than he is regardless, but this photo of Vin in dress shoes and his 5'10" listed girlfriend in heels is what first made me guess 5'11.5": Click Here If she's 6'1" in those heels then Vin looks about 6'0.5" or so in shoes, though he looks shorter in these other full photos from that event: Click Here They look closer again in the last 2 photos, though.

Admittedly, he doesn't look 5'11.5" here barefoot with 5'6.25" Tony Jaa: Click Here but perhaps there's a better pic or photo of them available that day. I haven't had time to look through all the footage yet.

Btw, Vin did look to wear dress type shoes to at least two events this year.

Vanity Fair Oscar Party: Click Here Click Here Click Here
Fast 8 Paris premiere: Click Here Click Here

Not many height comparisons from those events, though. At least from what I've seen thus far.

@Tonyx: Good find, these definitely look like those: Click Here I think those are legitimately Skechers. Some celebs put their own insert lifts in. Sly Stallone's favorite shoes for a half decade were Hogan sneakers, which he seemed to insert a half inch to inch lift in based on how high his ankle was. Robert Downey Jr. wears expensive designer high-top sneakers - most of which don't come with lifts built in - and while high-tops would typically conceal lifts like Vin's boots as they cover more of the ankle, in Downey's case, he stuffs in big enough lifts that you can easily spot the bulge. So whether Vin is wearing custom built elevator boots or regular boots doesn't always tell us if he's wearing lifts.

These might be his black ones: Click Here 1.75" heel and look how similar the bottom of these are: Click Here You can see the logo in this close up, but I can't quite make out what it says: Click Here These Prada leather combat boots with a 1.5" heel and 1" platform are very similar as well: Click Here

I don't think Vin had lifts on that occasion, but I believe he wears supplements the already thick boots at times with up to an extra inch inside. It's pretty likely he has some custom boots as well with all those different colors like red, green, gray etc., some of which I'd guess are elevator boots. I think he's 5'11.5" and will hit 186 cm or so in a lot of his boots, sometimes looking taller with his exaggerated posture. He may even reach 187-188 cm at times when he adds a lift.

Rising - 174 cm, google Vin Diesel Skechers(1st pic with yellow boots), then google Skechers logger boots.
SKECHERS Cascades (Wheat) Men's Lace-up Boots.
8 inch shaft height, 1/2 inch midsole, Layered 1 2/3 inch logger style boot heel.
Click Here
Diesel probably stuffed some thick orthopedic insoles inside maybe even a 1/2in lift inside, or is sneaky and those are custom made. Maybe he specifically asked for the Skechers logo to fool people and there is a 1in lift inside.
I think Vin is 5ft10.5in.
Guanzo said on 9/Sep/17
I want to those shoes imo but this shoes are custom made i think.
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Sep/17
Here's some good shots of Vin's typical black boots. I think when you consider the heel and platform along with the likelihood of a decent insole, those boots are probably giving him around 1.75" of actual height even without lifts, so we have to remember that it's a gain similar to some elevator shoes so along with Vin's longer legs, it might look funny and force up his posture with or without extra lifts. In these cases, I at least wouldn't rule out lifts looking at the lace area.

Close up at 2016 People's Choice Awards: Click Here
Fast & Furious 8 Photocall in Madrid: Click Here Click Here Click Here

So far, I've seen Vin wearing boots by Timberland, Porsche Design, Johnston & Murphy as well as Tod's, but have not seen a brand for his usual thick boots, which I suspect may be custom. While I think he's probably worn black ones both with and without extra lifts inside, I think more surely some of the red ones or green he's worn recently probably have lifts as the heel wasn't as big, but I don't doubt he was getting as much height at times. A different type of boot filming Fast 8, but the large heel remains: Click Here Click Here
Rising - 174 cm said on 8/Sep/17
Shorter than Jamie Kennedy makes sense as I've been convinced for years now that 5'11.5" is spot on for Vin. It's rare I settle that much on one estimate with a controversial height, but needless to say, I'm glad Rob gradually dropped him to that and doesn't appear on the verge of dropping him further, although I can understand the average guess, though the flat 5'10" stuff has never seemed possible to me. However, I wouldn't rule out lifts on Red's rooftop photo. It's too far too tell for sure either way and the heels and platform are thick enough to give a good 1.75" absolute minimum without lifts, but the boots even look pretty short, which is typical of elevator boots. With his likely 1 cm posture advantage and footwear, he does struggle to look 2" taller than Tyrese, who I suspect may be more 5'10"-5'10.25" than 5'10.75", but then that would suggest Vin has no lifts or I'm over or underestimating one of them. I must admit Rob's listings with a 2 cm difference line up perfectly here. I posted this once before, but Vin in a more moderate 2" type elevator shoe and Tyrese in thin shoes: Click Here The difference could look greater than that, if you look at other pics and even the video available, but Tyrese looks to be in 2 cm footwear max. But to add a comparison I don't think has been posted. Vin and Michael Caine, who Rob lists at a current height of 184 cm:

Click Here
Click Here

Vin gets close with boots and posture, but it appears Caine still edges him. If Caine is down to 6'0.5" as listed by Rob at 80+ then Vin passes for about 6'0"-6'0.25".

Nice pic Red, Vin looking a 6 footer there with big boots and ramrod posture next to 5'10.75" Gibson. Walker looking 6'1.5" and Dwayne actually looking 6'3.5" there but he has boots as well and camera advantage.
Tonyx said on 6/Sep/17
Dwayne listed at
6ft 2.5in (189.2 cm)
Peak height was 6ft 3in (190.5 cm)
At 50 years old, after 20 years of wearing heavy boots, lifting weights, staying muscular, these days he is 5ft10.5in. Wears elevator shoes only with a suit when he can't wear boots. When he wears boots, they look like logger type of boots with a pair of thick orthopedic insoles inside.

A video with him and 6'8 1/4" Vin Diesel:

Click Here

Vin Diesel obviously has a footwear/posture advantage there, but he still holds his own well by him in a way that somebody who is under this listing would be unable to do so. 5'11 3/4" wouldn't be a bad listing for Vin again.
Anon2 said on 4/Sep/17
@Celebheights I agree, i could never understand low as the 5'10'' guesses. Vin has never looked that small, boots or no boots. I always thought Vin was a solid 6ft. But I can buy his current listing of 5'11.5'' barefoot
Editor Rob: I've not seen it for ages, but there was a brief scene in Boiler Room near Jamie Kennedy when he looked a bit shorter...but then he could look near 5 inches taller than Ribisi in that film in a couple of scenes!

I've never understood why some people think that he's only 5'7"-5'10". He may wear big boots, but never appears under 6'1 1/2" in them. Subtract 2" inches because, and he's a legit 5'11 1/2". Maybe even 5'11 3/4".
************
I'd be shocked if Vince measured that tall. It'd just go to show how greedy and insecure he is, you can even tell by his body language he desperately wants to look taller and bigger than his costars, while they're all smiling and posing for the camera, he puffs himself up....

he looks so similar to rock at times in his boots, will look bigger or larger than barrack imo due to his weight
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 29/Aug/17
Editor Rob: I wouldn't say Rock's boots were quite as thick as Vin's, but he may have a little camera advantage, adding a cm or so to his height.

***********************************************************

Yeah but looking him near Paul Walker he´s with worse posture 3" taller, each camera advantage would be equalized if Rock stands straigth. He makes a near 6´6" appearance in this footwear with straight posture.
Slim said on 29/Aug/17
Sorry rob, I can't see 6' or 5'11.5", 5'11" at best.

This pic is so telling, Vin in ~1.75-2" soled boots (no inside lifts) 1.5-1.75" shorter than Walker in ~0.75" shoes.
Wich points to a 3" barefoot gap, Walker imo was 6´1.5".


Rob, how much % of your property would you bet that The Rock is in big lifts there? :)

I think the new cm reading has made things LESS confusing, but that's just me. Impossible to say whether a guy who virtually never appears out of big boots has shrunk. I'm sure even some of his elevator boots vary a 1/4" or more.
Dmeyer said on 15/Aug/17
Rob à Guy like diesel at 50 Lost height ? Maybe 0,25in
Editor Rob: he doesn't seem like a guy who has lost anything noticeable, but I suppose when you are doing a lot of physical roles, by the time you hit 50, a small fraction through joint / disc wear and tear is possible.

I agree with @ Alec. Vin is your typical 5'9-5'10 American dude. Even though he just turned 50, I don't believe he's lost any height.

Maybe about 5'11 in tennies, and about 6'0-6'1 depending on his boot of choice.

Rob is rarely off but he's too generous with lift wears IMO.

Alec said on 28/Jul/17
Has anyone even met Vin Diesel in real life, or does everyone just draw conclusions based on speculation?

I was in Miami about 10 yrs ago with a group of friends. One day half of us (6) went to the beach, and the other half went shopping along the main strip. I went to the beach.

We met up a few hours later and the group said they met Vin Diesel and Shaq (when he played for Miami Heat). It was at 2 seperate occasions they ran into them in the same day. All 6 of my friends said Vin was a runt. He was shorter than anything and did not match this 5'11" - 6' persona everyone thinks. One ofmy friends who is quite short (roughly 5' even) said he was about the same height as him. I highly doubt all 6 of them were lying to me.

People on here just wadte their time talking about stuff that isnt even true, and have no experience.

A strong 180 cm barefoot.

I don't believe he is a perfect 182 cm

Sometimes wears lifts, elevator shoes, boots..

Also he is the typical guy looks bigger in screen, reasons:

First his body of "bodybuilder"
Second for angles camera
Third "the casting", yes the casting is important to transform an actor in taller than he is really.
Fourth reason but not less important : lifts!

I would say Vin Diesel is a solid 5,11 in my humble opinion
Slim 182 cm said on 20/Jul/17
5'10.5 at the extreme lowest I don't think, more like flat 5'11. Or 5'11 and one eighth, on that case, a classic 5'11 wanting to look taller. I can't see the guy wearing more than 2.25 inches worth of footwear. So rob can round the guy up to strong 5'11 or down to flat 5'11.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 17/Jul/17
@ma

I agree with your estimates. And he does look a bit out of proportion when he puts on his lifts, such as short torso and arms and high knees. I believe body proportions plays a big role when it comes to hiding lifts. People with naturally long torso/arms and short legs are the best candidates for wearing lifts without looking odd.
Slim 181 cm said on 16/Jul/17

Probably so. Vin being 5'10.5"-5'11" barefoot and his biggest boots boost him to 6'2" (which gives 3-3.5") So I can see Rob at 5'11"-5'11.5" if he wore them.

I think that if he was barefoot and gives his boots to Robbie Paul...Rob would edge him out
Editor Rob: the thing with elevators, no actor is really walking around in 4 inch Elevators.

Me at 6ft is impractical...I tested these about the house and garden a few times and I just can't see any actor spending time in public with such big footwear 😲😲

The ones James Kyson Lee wore, were certainly 3-inch styles, but he was walking about like a Drunk Penguin!
KipJaymesYes said on 21/Jun/17
This is true but quite funny. I have a friend who is 6'1" flat. He has met both The Rock and Vin Diesel. He first met Rock when Rock visited Samoa in 2004. My friend got to shake his hand at the airport and said Rock was definitely 2 inches taller than him which means Rock is 6'3" and not the ridiculous 6'5" or even 6'6" that they would bill him at in WWE. He also said he expected Rock to be bigger but was more on the lean side though still big.

My friend then met Vin Diesel 2 years later in Venice Beach. This is when Vin was single, no kids. At this particular time Vin wasn't wearing shoes and both he and my friend were barefoot on the concrete chatting it up. He told me Vin was 4 inches shorter than him which means Vin is 5'9". Vin even tried to tilt his head upward and puff his chest out to make up for the fact someone was bigger and taller than him for once. Truth is Rock's posture sucks and Vin wears ridiculous lifts and even stands erect 100% of the time to appear much taller and bigger than what he is.
RisingForce said on 20/Jun/17
That's simply not true, cepinac. Vin is not standing right next to the poster with a straight on angle. If even a mugshot were taken from that angle, the margin of error would be great. Sorry, but all I see is confirmation bias there.

In the above photo, Vin looks about 6 inches taller than Katee Sackhoff. Without knowing her exact heel size, she may be near 5'8" in them. But Vin is also standing straighter, and if you look at other photos, it doesn't look more than 5.5" to me: Click Here That puts Vin at 6'1.5" in boots again, which seems to be a pretty common height for him.

As for Rock, I'm not sure I've seen a really good comparison where they're close. There's the rooftop photo where Vin has huge lifts and visibly shorter than Rock in his own boots and in this video of the two, I don't see more than 5'11": Click Here I stick to my estimate of 5'11"-5'11.5" range and it would make sense that Vin in some of those ridiculous boots with perfect posture would come close to a 6'2.5" man with bad posture, but the photos I see aren't full ones and Rock is slouching. In those instances, even a guy like Sly Stallone could even appear 6'1" in photos, which must be impossible in the type of shoes he was wearing then.

@Christian: you're right! Not quite as high as Rock. I actually used to think rock wore lifts but now don't. Rock you're absolutely right is 191 with shoes and maybe 188 without. Vin may in lifts be still a couple inches shorter than him even with an advantage

@Canson

I'm a bit confused. Do you mean that Diesel can look the same with Rock when he wears his lifts? Vin looking the same height as Rock means that Vin must be 191cm with shoes, which is too high imo.
Canson said on 18/Jun/17
@Christian: he can look close with Rock some days but others not. I agree with your estimate tho
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 18/Jun/17

6'2" in his lifts mean that he can look about 6'1" when standing next to everyone, right?
Canson said on 16/Jun/17
Good estimate Christian

Rising force: agreed in his lifts he can look 6'2"
RisingForce said on 15/Jun/17
The event at the bottom of my post? I do see about 6" in that first pic since it seems Donnie would reach low on Vin's nose, but he is a little closer while Donnie has better posture, but Vin does look an easy 6'1" compared to Bisping in the same pic if Bisping is in that 6'0.25"-6'0.5" range. Come to think of it, Vin did look as tall as Jonathan Ross to me when he appeared in his boots in 2013, though he was noticeably shorter in his 2009 appearance. So it does seem Vin's hits at least 186-188 cm in his boots, possibly even 189. This confirms they're at least close to as big as a lot think, but it also seems to suggest he gets more or less gain from different boots. Unfortunately, it's tougher than I'd expect to get good comparisons from events for the last XXX film.

Let's be succinct - 5"10 barefoot - Close to 6"2 shod with boots and whatever accessories are contained within. 190+ with all the gear seems extremely unlikely.
RisingForce said on 13/Jun/17
Now this pic doesn't make sense: Click Here Michael Bisping is in that 6'0"-6'0.5" range and Vin does pull off near 6'2" with him there, but I assume he's being helped not only by his elevator boots, but also the arm around shoulder push down and perhaps a camera angle. But Nina Dobrev is only 5'5"? How is that possible when she looks at least around 5'11" there in heels? I'm not familiar with her, but I guess that pic is just way off.

But you can see Vin now has his elevator boots in light blue as well! Click Here I still think the black ones he wore in NY recently are the biggest, but huge lift there!

This is another interesting one. I think berta referred to this and he was right, Vin looks like he's on his toes in his boots again: Click Here That one is a bit more of an elevator dress boot: Click Here Click Here But it still comes with all the height-enhancing ability Vin requires from a boot!

So far, I've only been convinced Vin reaches 186-187 cm in his elevator boots from what I've seen, so that first photo must be off. Now what that barefoot photo is good for is seeing Vin's proportions without height-enhancing footwear. That can at least give us some idea of how big of a boost he really gets.
Editor Rob: at that event, beside Donnie he could look a big 6ft 1 guy actually...

To be honest, I've never been much of a Vin Diesel fan... always hated his over the top though guy acting...
When I first saw him in his boots I was laughing my ass of 
Take a look at this video Click Here .
My personal guess was that he is 175.
Anyway, I did some research and found this picture Click Here of him without boots, one of the rare photos. On the photo I have extrapolated poster size in the background and based on this could do the exact calculation of his height. So without any further ado his real height is 177.5 cm or 5.82 feet

Wow! This is a great photo, brother.
Obviously, Vin Diesel is no more than 180 cm / 5'11 ".
By proportions, along the length of the arms and legs, it is not more than 180 cm. With this agree 95% of the guys at celebheights.com. I'm tired of repeating it ...
Those who think he's 5'11 "or more, you're just sick (sorry).
Growth of Vin Diesel:
179-181 (evening and morning)

P.S. It is also possible, 180-182 (evening and morning, respectively)
RisingForce said on 13/Jun/17
cepinac, sorry, but extrapolating off a poster in the background won't get you to Vin's height. As for the video, it doesn't tell us much. One is a walking still, which are terrible for height comparisons and we can't see their feet in the other 2. Chuck Norris is a known elevator boot wearer himself. Also, those aren't Vin's boots in the video. They're just random elevator boots and then a shoe lift. It seems Vin's boots are usually custom.

Here's Vin without boots: Click Here Pics from that night are the best we have of Vin without boots or elevator shoes. Vin's girlfriend Paloma Jimenez was listed 5'10" in her modeling days. If that's accurate then she'd be about 6'1" in those heels and Vin is barely shorter, so he'd be about 6'0.5" in normal dress shoes making him about the 5'11.5" Rob lists him. Paloma could be more 177 cm of course, which would make Vin about 181 in comparison, or even 5'9.5", which would make Vin around a flat 5'11". All possible of course.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 12/Jun/17
Vin is at least 2 inches taller than Chuck Norris. I believe Norris was the one who wore lifts when he met Vin, who was wearing normal shoes. Click Here If Norris wasn't wearing lifts, that would put Vin at 5'9", which is way too low.

There are surprisingly few good pics of Vin and Ice Cube, but here's the decent ones: Click Here Click Here Click Here It's not that easy to gauge the difference because of posture, raised eye levels and position, but in the pics it looks 3.5"-4" give or take, imo.

Here's video: Click Here Not a great angle, but you do see Samuel L Jackson and you can tell from about the 40 second mark that he's taller than Vin in sneakers similar to what Cube is wearing, but slouches a lot for photos.

Vin's boots look a bit different, but he still has a pretty thick heel and to me, there seems a good chance Vin has near 5 cm elevators with Cube in flat 2 cm type shoes. Here's one more good shot pretty close with a decent side view of Vin's boot: Click Here
RisingForce said on 1/Jun/17
Christian, I still believe Vin is 5'11.5", although I don't mean at his low. I definitely believe he drops to 181 cm at his low. Right now, I see anywhere from 5'11" to 5'11.5" as a fairly likely midday measurement. I can't say 5'10.5" is impossible because we've rarely seen Vin in normal shoes. As for Russell, I'm fine with taking his measured height, but I'd say for simplicity and a middle ground, lets say he's 6'3" on the nose. As I said, I'm not reading too much into the pic where Vin looks shorter because it's only one pic and not a full one, but it does certainly bring into doubt Vin passing for 6'1" with him. It's really difficult to tell if someone has a smaller lift in a boot, but I have said I think Vin wears boots both with and without lifts considering he can go from looking like a 5'11" range guy in them then look near his claim at 184-185 cm at other times.
Canson said on 1/Jun/17

Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 31/May/17
@RisingForce

D'Angelo was officially measured at 6'3 1/4" without shoes in 2015 Click Here so that shouldn't put Vin at anything above 5'11", considering that he had footwear advantage over D'Angelo. And his measurement likely took place very early in the day, so he's only probably like 6'2.75" at his low, making Vin 5ft10.5, the height I guessed him at for a long time. I don't think he was wearing any lifts though, as his boots didn't look odd.
RisingForce said on 31/May/17
Here's what I'm talking about with 6'3.25" measured D'Angelo Russell.

He looks his 6'1" claim here, but Russell is losing height with his posture Click Here
This photo may suggest how much height Russell was losing, even with the camera advantage he doesn't look over 181 cm here: Click Here

It's not proof of anything since the pic he looks shorter in isn't full, but it may have been more of a posture advantage that helped him pass for his 6'1" claim with Russell.
Guanzo said on 31/May/17

RisingForce said on 30/May/17
Christian, it depends on how much height he wants to gain. High tops will conceal enough so your foot doesn't fall out, but if Vin wants a bigger 3"+ or 3.5" boost, he's going to need a thick boot. Of course, high tops can become obvious as well if you stuff big enough lifts in them, particularly if you don't buy the right size or adjust your pant length and cut. Just look at Robert Downey Jr. A longer than usual boot cut jean would be best, though I'm not sure it's his style, but at least he wouldn't look so much like he was standing on a box. Funny enough, usually baggy pants make your legs look shorter and can mask abnormally high knees, but it doesn't always work with Vin. If you go with sneakers, though, you definitely need high tops. Sly Stallone's favorite shoes were Hogan sneakers for a few years, but because they were just a big sneaker and not high tops, you could see his high ankle position when he sat down and when you put 1"+ insert lifts into regular shoes as opposed to custom elevators, you need to wear at least 1 full size bigger so all this made drew more attention to them and made the sneakers seem even bigger. Tom Cruise's big mistake is when he wears a thick boot with a big internal lift, he wears particularly tight jeans along with it and the jeans aren't long enough to begin with so then they end up looking way too short highlighting the bulky boots and lifts as well as high knees. The opposite of Cruise would be Antonio Banderas and Simon Cowell. They'll wear big heels and supplement them with internal lifts, but overcompensate with boot cut jeans too long, which draws attention, particularly with Cowell who looks in danger of tripping and because it's all covered, it can look like they're wearing ladies 3" high heels as opposed to a men's cuban heel + an internal lift. I've seen photos where you could be fooled into thinking it was a woman in jeans from the waist down.

For Vin, I think there are options. The 2" elevator shoes he wore to the 2013 Grammys with Tyrese are much better with a suit since his big Frankenstein boots look quite conspicuous with a suit, same thing with Sam Worthington. But I think your idea would be worth building off of for Vin. Maybe get custom high tops in that style with built in lifts. Then for a boot look, as I said on the Kane Hodder page about Kane's Frankenstein boots, there are fashionable and thick Timberland type styles many wear which give about 1.5" even without lifts so getting a custom designed pair like that with reasonable lifts inside doesn't sound too hard, or even putting a reasonable insert in Timberland or Caterpillar boots. Actually, if you look at the pic with D'Angelo Russell, Vin's boots blend in as pretty normal, but while Vin looks his 6'1" claim in the full pic, seeing the other pic, I now think a lot of that is D'Angelo's posture since he stands straight in the other pic and looks about 4 inches taller instead of 2 even with Vin closer to the camera.

But back to the main point, the only real reason Vin's boots would need to be even close to that obvious is wanting a 3"+ boost. I'm not completely convinced that's what he gets, but maybe it is on occasion. There are some guys who do a genuinely good job hiding lifts since there are a number I suspect, but aren't sure of. In Vin's case, cowboy boots wouldn't really be his style, but those are an easy way to hide an additional lift, plus, even without lifts, you're going to be getting 1.6"-1.7" over barefoot height anyway. Take Mel Gibson for instance, I don't think he was ever any taller than 5'9" barefoot, but I think he's fooled a lot of people because he's usually appeared in cowboy boots both on and off screen for 30 years since Lethal Weapon. I believe he's worn lifts a fair amount, but it's always hard to tell if someone has an extra lift inside a cowboy boot. Most people won't think twice and just assume someone is getting a bit extra boost from the bigger heel of that style.

@RisingForce

The second photo you posted was the most obvious. Even the average person can see that he's either wearing built-in elevator boots or normal boots with lifts stuffed inside it. I mean, look at how his feet has a sloping angle, and how the lift is buldging out of the boot, creating a visible crease. Click Here If he wants to make his footwear less suspicious, he should stop wearing his custom boots and start wearing high top sneakers, like Jordans or something, and then add lifts. His massive boots let the cat out of the bag everytime.
ma said on 29/May/17
@Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8)

Most of you guys think Vin is around 179-180. I believe he is 181-182 cm.
Everybody agrees that with lifts + boots he could gain 8-9 cm.
So that's why for me he could be 190 cm with his maximum internal lifts + extreme boots like these

Click Here
RisingForce said on 28/May/17
Christian, that's because Jensen Ackles edited Jared's page!

I think I remember Vin being on a box for that, funny enough, that reminded me of this Jonathan Ross interview: Click Here At 6:38 Jonathan Ross asks how much bigger Rock is than Vin and Vin replies 2-3 inches, but Ross doesn't buy it and says "No. More than that", which Vin replies "don't push it." Of course, Vin probably buys at least Rock's 6'4" claim, so Vin would almost definitely maintain his 6'1" claim and he might even try 6'2". Now Vin in his Frankenstein boots does pull off similar height to 6'1" Jonathan Ross at 3:55 in that video, but a few years earlier, you see Vin was noticeably shorter than Ross without his boots at 1:28 in this video: Click Here You see good side shots of Vin's shoes throughout the interview, such as 1:42, but I'd need higher quality to guess whether they're normal dress shoes or possibly 2" elevator shoes again. Without knowing about footwear, Vin definitely seems 5'11.5" max this time.

While I'm here, I might as well post a few more good shot of Vin's black elevator boots in Washington Heights recently: Click Here Click Here Click Here Well those boots will take him to heights for sure. And a good shot from the premiere: Click Here You see from the back that the heels are bigger than a lot of boots that style.

Look at this.. Vin is shorter than Rock with 1.5 or 2 inches With lifts!!

Click Here
RisingForce said on 26/May/17
We can't see Vin or Rock's feet there and Rock slouches terribly. In fact, Rock was visibly taller than Paul Walker, yet his slouch could make him seem a bit shorter at times. Look at Vin here: Click Here Nowhere near 6'3" in monster lifts and perfect posture. I have doubts Tyrese is close to 5'11", but even so, let's give him 5'11.5" in those fairly thin shoes with relaxed posture. Vin looks 2" taller max. Paul Walker looks to have less than 2 cm sneakers and relaxed posture, so if he give him about 187 cm, he's probably 189 cm max in them, but he's still at least an inch taller than Vin. Now if Rock is 6'4" in those boots, I could see Vin at 187 cm, but with Rock's slouch, he's definitely less. Vin doesn't look over 186 cm in footwear in that photo. Walker still edges out Vin in boots and lifts back to back: Click Here Somewhere around a half inch minimum and 2 cm max depending on posture and possible tilt. I'd say Vin might hit about 187 cm there. But if you go by photos where you can't see feet, then I can find pics of Sly Stallone anywhere from 6'1" to 6'2.5" on days he had lifts in thick sneakers rather than boots like Vin. So you really have to take photos where feet aren't visible with a grain of salt, especially with one man slouching. In fairness, Rob does list Walker 6'2", so if you agree then you could argue Vin hits 188-189 cm in boots and lifts, but usually he looks 186-187 cm to me in boots and lifts. He looked that range with D'Angelo Russell and then if you consider Vin looked a bit over 6 feet with Ludacris in those full premiere pics I posted, maybe 184 cm max, then he'd likely be about 186 cm in those boots, assuming of course, Ludacris is around the 5'8" he claims.

Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 26/May/17
If Rock was 6ft4 in shoes, that means he has to be 6ft3 barefoot, which I believe is too high for him. He's more like 6ft2.25 barefoot and 6ft3.25 in normal shoes. The most I can give for Vin is 6ft2 wearing lifts + boots.

5'10" in the morning is the max. One can only imagine how insecure our "wanna-be-tough" Vin is. Started from being skinny and short-sighted which lead to roids, and ended up in obsession with average height.
RisingForce said on 25/May/17
IMDB heights aren't official, they're edited by users. That's why I've always said they should just have a standardized way of listing heights. Either just list the official/claimed heights, since many mistakenly think they're official anyway. Or, use CelebHeights and cite or link to Rob's estimates. One or the other, not a mix. IMDB can't compete with Rob guessing height. They're simply a film info site. But everyone understands Rob's listing are guesses and he quotes the celeb's claim when possible. But with IMDB, you might one one hand have an actor with no claim available listed inches higher than what he'd claim while another is the official height and another is one of Rob's listings and yet another is some random IMDB user's estimate. So naturally, people just visiting that site don't know which I'd which. People often and not unreasonably take an official height and then assume the celeb is likely significantly shorter, or at least, can't be taller. But in some cases, people are mistakenly assuming someone is inches shorter than a reasonable guess. As for boots and lifts, Guanzo. It's all relative. I think it varies with Vin. Sometimes he may just have a thick boot, other times a pretty standard elevator shoe like the photos I posted with Tyrese, but then you have the recent New York premiere and Vin looks like he's standing on a box! That is very large compared to almost anyone else and on average, you won't find too many here who wear footwear as thick as Vin. I couldn't put a truly precise number on it, but I don't think Vin is more exaggerated than any other known/suspected lift wearer. I've seen all exaggerated.
Editor Rob: the search engine DuckDuckGo does use an Instant Answer for many of the 'blah blah height' requests and rounds off celebheights listings to full inches.

It's a small search engine of course, but it's interesting that it used that feature.
6'1-6'1.5 Guy said on 24/May/17
It's so funny that Vin says 6'1, at least because on IMDB he's listed as 182 cm (5'11.5).
Friends, I can tell you with confidence (100%), 182 cm is the maximum height of the morning, just a limit, not a millimeter higher.
All actors can not be higher than the declared heights (except Chris Pine).
In addition, Vin Diesel is a conscious person who does everything to LOOK higher and look at the perfect height 6'1-6'2.
His posture (you have noticed, he never stands relaxed and does not stoop - this simply does not happen), as if he had been stabbed, shoes, etc.
We can say with confidence that he repeatedly visited celebheights.com (Hello, Vin).


I want Vin Diesel to take off his huge shoes and elevators, because this person lives 24/7 in this huge shoe (eat, sleep, take a shower, appear in public, etc.).
The actor Vin Diesel never in your life, never was and was not 6'1 (185.4 cm) and even close, if only because he was in huge shoes and had a better pose only then he began to look at 6'1-6 '1.5 (this is the maximum).

The height of Vin Diesel is about 180 cm (5'11) in the evening.


All.
Guanzo said on 23/May/17

Yeah, heightcrazy, he's definitely wearing lifts there looking at the angle and his stance. He just about looks eye to eye with her. It's certainly possible he is a 181 cm guy who drops to 180 cm evening. Maybe Vin follows the site and knows you'll bust him if he wears Dons, Rob. Then again, he's already been busted! He often stands and walks like a 2003-2008 Stallone, but his legs look odder. It will be interesting if we find celebs wearing Dons.

Great RisingForce, he definitly has more than just a big heel with some of his footwear!

Charlize should be ~6´1" in her shoes, so vin ~6´1.25" in his specialboots.

Yeah in my opinion he wears inside lifts with this red boots, unusual shape at the outside and at the back of the heel.

180cm evening maximum for Vin
RisingForce said on 23/May/17
That's true, Rob, but in general I think he wears custom boots while with Stallone and Cruise, I often see them in shoes you can identify and buy yourself. I'm sure Vin has sported some Timberlands as well, but it'd be interesting to find our who his shoemaker is.
Editor Rob: certainly not Dons 😏
RisingForce said on 22/May/17
Thanks, Rob. I started to suspect the same thing when I came across the side view. They're definitely not the regular dress shoes Vin wore with his girlfriend a few years back. It makes me more certain he's a lift guy if he'd have elevators outside of those boots. Btw, I'm thinking Vin's usual boots may be custom. He seems to have similar ones in many different colors.

Red boots for Fate of the Furious Berlin premiere: Click Here Click Here Click Here

If Vin didn't wear lifts, then Tyrese would get a similar boost in Timberlands, but I don't really believe that: Click Here Click Here
Video from that event shows not that big of a height difference: Click Here

I feel confident removing Vin from the Brad Pitt category of "maybe he wears lifts, maybe he doesn't." He seems to be among the worst offenders. Nobody would doubt it if it were Stallone or Cruise. Of course, it doesn't mean he's short. I bet Vin wants to look the 6'1" he claimed or even the 6'2" he was regularly listed at, such as this 2002 article: Click Here Vin simply has "Reynolds syndrome."
Editor Rob: the black boots look like they are a little bit different style than the red ones...the black look thicker in the heel area.

Vin without his usual Frankenstein boots at the 2013 Grammys with Tyrese: Click Here

I see about an inch difference there, though it could be more 3 cm that night seeing other pics and video, but Tyrese has looser posture and lifts or not, Vin does have a bigger heel while Tyrese has noticeably thinner shoes overall as well. I still think 5'11.5" is spot on for Vin, and while I think Tyrese is closer to 5'10" than 5'11", Rob's two listings of 5'11.5" and 5'10.75" can add up. We can safely rule out lifts for Tyrese, though seeing Vin's shoes from the side angle, I don't rule out lifts for him at all: Click Here

Btw, if I had any doubts Vin wears lifts, the New York Fate of the Furious premiere has erased all doubt for me: Click Here Click Here Click Here It looks to me like Vin is standing on something or up on his toes. He winds up looking out of proportion. It's tough to imagine those are just thick boots without anything else. I've seen other times where I thought Vin may just have boots and nothing else, but this looks ridiculous.
Editor Rob: Rising, there is still a decent chance they are elevators, though certainly not expensive ones, I would say they seem to be a shape I'd expect from a 2-inch model!

I met Vin in person and he is no more than 5' 10". If you click the Paul Walker link above, you can easily see it. Vin is being photographed at an angle that would make him appear closer in height to Paul, yet we're looking at a 3" deficit even with the angle advantage.
Darren510 said on 7/May/17
Diesel wears lifts sometimes I'm convinced, but not elevators. He looked just about the same height next to 6'1.5-6'2 PAul Walker at times, but at other times looked 2 inches shorter. He is really no that much shorter than 6'2.5-6'3 Dwayne Johnson either. I would bet anything he is 5'11.5, but I could buy either 5'11 or 6'0 as well. 5'10 or less seems to be really pushing it

Duffer 5ft 11 said on 5/May/17
In tune with my previous thoughts, purely and simply, Vin is a very stocky 5'10 guy barefoot, maybe a smidge over that in the morn. Add to that the two inch heel on those clogs he wears as well as the alleged lifts residing inside them it is highly likely that that is the reason why he pulls off looking tallish beside naturally loftier guys such as Walker (RIP dear friend) and The Rock. NEWS FLASH: 5'10 is NOT short...It's a decent height. The only area of the world a 5'10 man would be deemed short (or shortish) at that height would be in Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro and perhaps Holland.

i would like to know what S.J.H think about vin disels height? and mister_lennon
berta said on 5/May/17
i think his shoes give him total of about 6,5 cm everything up to 4 cm is hard to spot. 5 cm then people walk different and 6-7 cm that when you look like vin diesel. 181 guy that makes it up to 187,5 in shoes and look 185 to people who meets him. But at the same time he neer look taller than 184 even in thoose shoes. He really can be 180 cm but we really dont know how mutch his shoes give. if he really dont uses lifts he could be 6 foot. In that old breakdance video when he was 17 years old he looked like 177-178 cm most guys grow about 2 cm after that.
Richardspain said on 1/May/17
I agree with you Christian

Elevator boots according the heel of inside boots give more or less centimetres.

I only said an esteemed number.
SS said on 1/May/17
182cm is alright! Making him lower as that is unrealistic!

Remember he wears elevator boots or heels always, so I give him max 180cm barefoot

Resume

Barefoot 179/180cm
Elevator boots 184cm
Flat footwear 182cm

No more no less

Elevator boots give more than just 4-5cm. I think they can take him up to 188.

@Honest Slovene: maybe I underestimated but I'd say Allen Iverson David Beckham height like Christian said 179-180 or 178-179 weak 5'11/strong 5'10. My previous was based on a poster who made the comment previously saying he knew him. I'll try to find it as it may have been on his page or Rocks

@Canson 5'9"-5'10" range is laughable for Vin, but so is his 6'1" claim. He looks like a decent 5'11" guy that goes well over 6'0" wearing lifts.

Good estimate. 179-180cm's most probable.

I doubt he is as low as 5ft 9 or 5ft 10, but he really looks more like a 5ft 11 guy, maybe 181 cm.
Cobra said on 28/Apr/17
He can at times look close to 6-2 in height(Sometimes with Walker and the Rock). Now, there's OBVIOUSLY NO WAY he's that tall(wearing thick boots maybe some form of lifts) but there's also no way he's wearing 5 or 6 inch lifts.

Let's get real and disregard what some random is claiming by "having met him".
RisingForce said on 27/Apr/17
Dmeyer, if you have the money, you should get some of the Hogan sneakers Sly wore a lot and see how much lifts you can fit in them. As for Vin, I still believe 5'11.5" is perfect and 5'11" absolute minimum, but I am pretty sure he often puts lifts in his boots, particularly the rooftop photo, but perhaps not always.
Canson said on 27/Apr/17
@Christian: not sure. He said he was 5'9" but also mentioned he's friends with other celebs. Don't remember what page it was on. I wouldn't go below 5'9.5 but maybe not above 5'10". He never struck me as being all that tall imho

Canson said on 26/Apr/17
Not sure Christian. One guy here said he has met Vin and is friends with him and said he has ridiculous lifts on said he's 5'9-5'10 too

-----

Did that guy ever saw Vin without his lifts? If not, I'm still not convinced that he's only 5'9". (Guessing someone's height when they're wearing hidden lifts isn't a good idea, because you never know how much height they're hiding.) On the rare occasions without wearing lifts and boots he looks at least 5'10.5"
NFL nerd said on 26/Apr/17
@delancey,

Remember actors are a product. Its very likely his camp requires him to claim/appear 6'1, and they dress him accordingly(like his signature boots for example). When he's "off duty" he seems to be comfortable in nikes.

"As for the video, Cobra. Well I posted a video a below where Vin looks a shocking 4 inches shorter walking beside Rock."

That's not a 4 inch difference. More like 3. Which would be accurate. We also can't see footwear. That's from the set of fast five where the Rock is likely wearing combat boots.

In the video, provided by RisingForce, the difference between Rock and Diesel is not less than 3.5 inches, because the eye level of Vin is lower than that of Dwayne, so the sound is 3.5-4 inches more believable.
Please, watch the video again.

By the way, if you are interested in Vin shoes in this video, then think for yourself what this person is wearing if he is 24/7 in the same shoes for about 20 years.

P.S. Thanks!
RisingForce said on 24/Apr/17
Cobra, I think he actually probably is 3" shorter at 5'11.5" while Rock at 6'2.5" seems about right, but I see more than just 3" in that video since Vin's head doesn't seem much above Rock's eyes. I remember Rob saying Vin only looked about 5'11" in that video too. As for footwear, it'd make sense Rock had more because I don't think the difference is that big, but it's not exactly unlikely Vin had boots as well since he wears them almost 24/7. I give almost no chance of under 5'11", but in that one video ge's really not looking over it, imo.

Such a big difference to 174/175 cm guys like Statham/Hardy yet both those actors seem secure about their own heights.

I wouldn't put Statham up there. He claimed 5ft11 during his diving days, despite only being around 174cm my opinion.
RisingForce said on 22/Apr/17
Brad, other than Marky Mark's ridiculous repeated 5'10" claims, why do you think he's "height paranoid"? He doesn't seem to wear lifts when he's out of movies and even appeared in socks with Will Ferrell. Anyway back to Vin, as for why a guy above average would be height conscious, he has Burt Reynolds syndrome. Burt always wanted to be a towering figure like Clint Eastwood. Telly Savalas was another. Solidly somewhere 5'10"-5'11", but got listed at 6'1" and wore big heels and likely lifts to try to achieve that. Vin is similar in that he clearly wants to be a big 6'1"-6'2" guy. Many would agree that's an ideal height, especially with Vin's image. Brad Pitt is another. A solid height, but falls short of the 6 feet mark and seems to wear a bit extra heel and sometimes lift to reach it. Besides, everyone is an individual who wants different things. We had a 6'2" guy on this site who wore lifts all the time since he wanted to be 6'5" or 6'6". Meanwhile Brad on this site is that height and hates it. As for the video, Cobra. Well I posted a video a below where Vin looks a shocking 4 inches shorter walking beside Rock. I definitely agree with 5'11.5", but he honestly looked 5'11" max in this video. If you can't find it below, I'll repost it.

It's just like a lot of movie stars. There's pressure to look and feel "larger than life". Especially being a macho action star who's persona is built around looking big and tough.

It seems to me that almost all people know that the growth of Vin Diesel is 5'11 (180 cm).
General Statistics:
85% of people claim 5'11 (180 cm).
10% of people claim that it is between 5'10.5 to 5'11.5 (179-182 cm).
2.5% of people claim that he is 5'10 or less.
2.5% of people claim that he is 5'11.5 and over.

The result is: The growth of Diesel Wine is in the range from 5'10.5 to 5'11.25 (179-181 cm).
Evaluation of 180 cm. Shows his sensible.

strange that he is shorter than christpfher hjuvje (182-183) in lifts. and as i had sad before chroistopher worked with a swedish guy who is 184 and looked atleast 2 cm shorter. i christopher is barely 182 then diesel could be 180 .
Cobra said on 19/Apr/17
Ok, short of him standing barefoot I may have found the holy grail:

Click Here

Go to the 9:02 mark. Even with thick boots and lifts there's no way he's looking like that next to the Rock if he's anything under than what's listed here.
Brad said on 18/Apr/17
He's 5' 10". In those huge wedged customs he'd be owning Theron huge and about up to the Rock at 5-11.5. He's a height paranoid individual like Burt and Sly and Marky Mark.
RisingForce said on 17/Apr/17
Vin pulls off near his 6'1" claim with Russell, though he of course has much better posture and you never know what's in Vin's boots. But good pics, Cobra. 5'11.5" is indeed spot on. I wouldn't go any higher, but I certainly wouldn't go below 5'11" either.
Rhodes said on 17/Apr/17
5ft 11.75 Kristofer Hivju edged him out by a fraction during their first confrontation scene in Fast 8, which was a full body shot and both were wearing black combat boots. Would say Vin is definitely this measurement and no higher.
Brad said on 16/Apr/17
Never over 5-10 in his life. He's even with Theron with no shoes.....in the film I'm sure she's in ballet slippers and Vin rockin in his 3" custom wedged boots.

Looks around 5'11.
Cobra said on 13/Apr/17

He might be a little more or a little less somewhere in between 5-11 and 6, and uses thick boots to give himself another 1.5 to 2 inches.

danimal i think you can be right that arnold is shorter then what he is listed today. he usually dont look taller than 180-181 if he not have boots on. by the way vin diesel was on jimmy fallon som day ago and he did edge out fallon with 1 cm with huge shoes on. he could hardly walk. i think fallon have 3 cm on him. if his shoes did give him about 4 cm more than fallons. i can really belive he have shoes on that give him about 6,5-7 cm from barefoot height.

5'11. He is not 5'10. I can see even 5'11.5" before 5'10. 5'11 or 5'11.25 IMO.
RisingForce said on 2/Apr/17
I think Rob has both Vin and Arnold perfect at 5'11.5", unless Arnold has shrunk more in the past couple years. Vin is more likely to look taller than he is due to thick boots, lifts and chest out posture, but did look a surprising 5'11" max in the video I posted with the Rock and while I'll assume he didn't have lifts, he almost always at least wears thick boots. Arnold did look a weak 5'11" with St-Pierre at best, more like 5'10.75", but then he was not much shorter than guys apparently around or near the 6'1" mark like Jai Courtney and Jason Clarke at the Terminator Genisys premiere. He also generally looked 182 cm wearing normal shoes with Manganiello the year before and could again look like a 6 footer when he had a thicker heel or cowboy type boot. I'm with Rob, I think Arnold could likely stand taller than he looks at his shorter moments, but barefoot I do think he and Vin are the same height.
Wrs567 said on 2/Apr/17

I just don't understand how you have Jimmy Fallon and Arnold at the same height, yet Jimmy has significant height on Arnold. Arnold is as tall as 5'11" bodybuilders who are barefoot today and barely edges out George St-Pierre. I'm a huge Arnold fan Rob, but to me, he looks to be max 5'10.5" today.

RisingForce said on 23/Mar/17
Steve, I think Vin's actual boots on the rooftop are more in the range of 1.5" with the outside heel, but lifts can give the illusion of a bigger outside heel, especially from a distance. There's no doubt he's getting between 2-3 inches there including lifts. I truly believe Rob's listing is the best, I've thought Vin was 5'11.5" for years, although he should look taller there next to Tyrese who I have 5'10" and Walker who I have 6'1.5" and is slouching in flat footwear.
Chris said on 23/Mar/17
179cm. Typical solid 5"10 ranger with a stocky build but with bigger footwear can appear tallish. He is just trying to make himself more like the rock when he is just a normal sized dude who is muscular in build.
franklin said on 22/Mar/17
For Pete sake, the man wears boots that give him an extra 3.5 inches. It is so obvious that he is not 6'1" because his body is not portioned to be that height.

Easily a 5'10" no more no less.
Don't know what to claim(5'11 said on 19/Mar/17
If he really was 5'11.5 I don't think he'd go through so much of the effort that he does. I think he'd try and make it more natural. For me he is 5'10.5
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 19/Mar/17
Click Here

This is what I got out of this pic, I´m 100% sure Vin has no lifts there - but still the biggest heel by far.

in this pic it looks like this for barefoot height:
Paul 187cm / 6´1.5"
Vin 180cm / 5´11"
Tyrese 177cm / 5´9.5"

Measuring the lines its a solid 5cm between Paul and Vin and about 6.2cm between Vin and Tyrese.
But the angle gives Paul 1cm advantage over Vin and Vin 1cm over Tyrese, wich to me is confirmed by the vid Rising Force has posted.


Rob, do you agree, especially with the footwearheight and Diesel not wearing lifts?
6'1-6'1.5 Guy said on 19/Mar/17
Friends, and now try to introduce Vin Diesel in keds Converse or Vans ...
Perhaps, it is 98% impossible. He will always be in shoes with 5 cm (2 inch) soles and 1.5 cm (0.6 inch) lifts.
Vin Diesel Height:
181 cm; 5'11.25 – Morning.
179 cm; 5'10.5 – Night.
Steve said on 19/Mar/17
@RisingForce Yea, definitely agree with you that sometimes it's boots+lifts combo and other times it's just the boots. I've seen that picture you posted of them on that rooftop quite a few times and Vin is definitely wearing some pretty hefty lifts there. As you said - it looks like he's on his tiptoes inside the boots. The boots themselves Are very very thick ones too, even for Vin's standards... zoom in on the heel at the back it looks to be a good 2/3inches thick.

It's funny because even with the massive boots, perfect posture and lifts, he's still not quite as tall as Paul Walker who's standing there with casual as hell posture and wearing just a pair of Vans!! That's why I struggle to put Vin at anything over 5'10.5 because if he was close to 6ft like the listing says it wouldn't take all of that to make him almost the same height as Paul.
Guest66 said on 18/Mar/17
Rob cut off that quarter, but nothing really changed, he's still listed at 182cm
RisingForce said on 18/Mar/17
Steve, that premiere is strange because the difference between each of the 3 is big. Tyrese is at least 5'10", but doesn't look anywhere near it there, so I looked up video of that premiere, but it showed the same thing: Click Here (@ 8:41) All I can think of is the ground was tilted from left to right. But the difference between Vin and Tyrese isn't as big as it should be here with Vin's posture advantage: Click Here That's actually one of the pics that convinced me he sometimes has lifts in his boots though looking at his stance and how he seems to be on his toes. This also convinced me, not because I could tell he had lifts from looking this time, but because he looks so much taller than other times he wore similar boots: Click Here Nearly as tall as Walker there so the only explanation I have is sometimes he just wears thick boots which give him almost 1.5" over barefoot while other times he has lifts in those boots, how big is anyone's guess. I think 5'11.5" is right, but as long as Vin wears boots 24/7 he'll be impossible to pinpoint.

He is between 5'10"-5'11". He looked shorter than Timothy Olyphant and he had his usual boots. The guy is a generic lift wearer.
Steve said on 14/Mar/17
Nice to see a downgrade for Vin! Even if it is only 0.25inch!

It's definitely harder than most people to get an angle on Vin's exact height.
I think anywhere between 5ft10 and 5ft11.5 is possible, probably closer to 5ft10 in my opinion.

A big question is: How much height does he gain with his special boots?? Without lifts I'd say they look to add 2inches minimum but from seeing how he stands and walks in them I'm 99% sure they have lifts in them so I'd say 3inches at least.
He usually looks to be standing around 6ft1 when he's wearing them, which would make him 5ft10 if they give an extra 3inch or 5ft11 if they only add 2inch.

Click Here

There's an example of why I'd conclude that he stands around 6ft1 with the boots - he looks about 1.5inches shorter than Paul Walker who would be standing no less than 6ft2.5 in those shoes.
Canson said on 13/Mar/17
@Capetownjazzy: Russell is overlosted on his pre draft tho prob because of his long hair. He is 6'2" not 6'3. Adam silver is 6'3" and has him by an inch and he's almost 3" shorter than Kobe was
RisingForce said on 12/Mar/17
If Ludacris is 5'8" as he claims to be then Vin is passing for a solid 6 feet: Click Here His foot position and posture do suggest lifts to me, but his footwear are thicker regardless. Until we see more of Vin without boots, anywhere in the 5'11" range is a reasonable guess.

I think some people give Vin Diesel the short/manlet label soley because of his lifts and trying to appear taller, but in no way is Vin short, slightly more the opposite, but not enough to warrent even a 182cm listing IMHO but again I find it difficult to gauge his height so could be wrong. Its like the case with people giving Tom Cruise a hard time for his height when he's hardly really that short, but after lift wearing and all that stuff about him having some form of napoleon complex spread around which I'm sure is exaggerated, it became a thing to mock Tom Cruise for his height. You don't hear so much about that with Vin because he's at least 3 inches taller, so a bit of a double standard if you ask me. If Cruise was taller those rumours wouldn't exist or diminish, with every single inch making a difference.

I don't see over 5'11 personally but its harder than normal to gauge his height within the cm because his lifts/boots throw things off, and his stocky build make his proportions look stumpier than normal for a man of his height so people could indeed estimate him shorter and why many have said 5'10. But on the other side of the coin many people have routinely thought 6'0-6'1 before which is too much and obviously because of his lifts and I'm not even going anywhere near that 6'4 estimate.

Rob, if you have a moment, can you look through this pictures of Puerto Rican singer nicky jam and vin disel.

Click Here:

How tall would you guess him to be after looking through the first list of pictures? thanks. I am I right in assuming high/medium 5'8 range? (173-4)
Editor Rob: Nova, he can seem 3 or 4 inches shy of big Vin, without knowing how thick their footwear is.

good update its getting closer :D
RisingForce said on 4/Mar/17
Perfect listing, Rob.
Johan said on 4/Mar/17
I can live with this new listing, I am 100% sure big vin measures this out of bed.
Mike said on 4/Mar/17
Rob, if you're saying you can argue 180 for him, then why is he listed at 182?!
Editor Rob: I'm saying I can understand the argument for 5ft 11, overall from the years of watching and seeing him, I think I will go bang on 5ft 11.5.
RisingForce said on 28/Feb/17
I agree, 180 cm is at least possible since he didn't look over it in the video with Rock and we rarely see him without boots so there's more guesswork with Vin than usual. If his GF rounded up from 5'9.5" to 5'10", which wouldn't be unlikely then Vin would look about 180 cm there as well. I'd guess more 181-182 cm range, though.
@HeightcrazyRed6ft said on 25/Feb/17
Imo chances are:

182cm - 0%
181cm - 10%
180cm - 50%
179cm - 40%
178cm - 0%

Can´t see 5´10" flat, can´t see him 182cm either. He has some heavy lifted footwear at times about 3inches and never looked close to 6´3".

He looked strong 6`1 weak 6´2" in BIG footwear

In solid heeled dressshoes I see him between 6´0" and 6´0.25"


Average guess is pretty spot on with 180cm.

Rob do you agree?
Editor Rob: I can see a 180cm estimate, it's not outrageous.
James B said on 25/Feb/17
Rob surely vin must be 6'6 if Tyler mane was 6'8?

This is another video I was talking about where Vin looks much shorter than usual, I remember when it was last posted, everyone agreed he looked closer to 5'11" than 6': Click Here

Friend, this is a great video that shows us that between 4 inches difference. Therefore, Vin Diesel can not be more than 5'11.
His real height: 5'10.5 (179 cm).
RisingForce said on 22/Feb/17
Johan, I agree he COULD be 5'11" as well, he looks it on the video I posted with a 6'2.5"-6'3" Rock since he looks a good 4 inches shorter, but I've always thought 5'11.5" is the most probable, but also the max. He's in normal shoes with his gf. There simply isn't enough barefoot evidence to judge him exclusively off that. You can never determine someone's height from just one or 2 pics, but I agree there's a better chance of 5'11" than 6', but no way he's under 5'11", imo. I'm sure he's at least 6'1" in some of his boots.
Ramualdo said on 22/Feb/17
About 179 cm
Johan said on 20/Feb/17
Vin standing again in military while his 5'10"? ( She is a model after all) partner has in one pic a bent leg and in the other isn't even standing straight.

I will be generous and say he is 6' in shoes and 5'11" barefoot.

@Rising force

I would much rather go with the barefoot evidence. Tony Jaa is a self claimed 5'6" -168 cm guy and Vin isn't more than 5 inches taller barefoot.

RisingForce said on 17/Feb/17
So then Vin at roughly 6'0.5" in dress shoes and his girlfriend at 6'1" in heels would add up? It appears to firmly dispute any of the under 5'11" stuff, which I've never believed anyway and 5'11.5" would seem a better guess than 5'11" flat unless someone comes up with reason to doubt his girlfriend is 5'10" barefoot.
Editor Rob: those figures would add up...
RisingForce said on 15/Feb/17
Rob, how tall do you think Vin looks here considering footwear and posture if his girlfriend is 5'10"? Click Here Click Here I think that rules out the 5'10" stuff, but at the same time, 5'11.5" is certainly the most I can see him at without boots.
Editor Rob: for once he has on what looks a normal shoe, she has at least 2 inches more footwear than him, yet I doubt would look much taller side by side with same posture.
Lovi Sarwara said on 13/Feb/17
He is 5'10 barefoot and 6'1 in his monster boots. Always looked about 1 or 1.5 inch shorter than 6'2 Paul Walker
Revisionist said on 12/Feb/17
I agree with most here that he's likely 178-180cm.

It's difficult to imagine a guy who's actually well above average height be this so insecure, but that's Hollywood for you.
Riddickfan said on 6/Feb/17
Thanks for your previous answer Rob.

I am also curious about this...take a man like Vin who is clearly conscious about his height wearing these lifts etc, why with his money do you think he wouldn't get limb lengthening surgery? and then he could really be his 6ft1 claim. It's an extreme measure yes but his complex also seems to be in the extreme.
Editor Rob: Riddick, I don't know his psyche exactly, but it would require probably a year out of your life. Then are your legs going to be as strong, what about roles, insurance and reputation...
Riddickfan said on 5/Feb/17
How big are normal shoe soles, like converse for example?
Editor Rob: a converse is usually somewhere in the 0.6-0.65 range, a typical shoe might be anywhere from 2-3cm, a solid boot maybe 4cm, a big logger boot or cowboy heel near 5cm.

@Danimal

I think a lot of people have lost all sense of what is normal height wise. I think it is a sad state of affairs when men who are close to 6'0" are insecure about their height, this height is clearly around 3 niches above average even in western countries like the USA. I am not saying it is the fault of the individual person, which in this case is Vin Diesel, it's society that should take the blame for putting so many expectations on people. There's too much of the attitude that you have got to have a certain image and that you have got to be have certain attributes, and/or that your life has got to be lead a certain way to fit in within certain areas of society, One thing people should bear in mind is that Steve McFadden, who I would say is about 5'7"', plays the role of hard man Phil Mitchell in English soap Eastenders very well indeed.

@ MDV - Hello! Count me in for not understanding what 'manlet' means! It sounds like one of those made-up words befitting of a very small gnomelike man!
(At 5ft11.75, that wouldn't include Vin Diesel!)
berta said on 31/Jan/17
vin disel is probably 4 cm taller than stallone was at peak.
HonestSlovene said on 30/Jan/17
lol at Danimal getting upset when his man crush gets justifiably critisized.
Editor Rob: I doubt danimal has a crush on Vin, it's just being a bit realistic.
HonestSlovene said on 30/Jan/17
Lets be fair though he must have some serious issues to be wearing lifts at an slightly above average height. I think he must be about 5'11", no shorter and no taller, this listing is slightly too high for him IMHO.
MDV said on 29/Jan/17
Sorry, can someone explain me what manlet means? I can't find it in the dictionary.
