Comment on the Height of Aaron Eckhart

I discovered the aerosol facing the wall in 2009 , at fist i thaugh my morning was 5'11.75 and night 5'11 then i dicovered 6'0.25+ and 5'11 3/8+
dmeyer said on 2/Nov/15
From my old comment i thaught he looked 1-2cm shorter than me 5'11.5 so 5'10.75 is perfect , i use to missmeasure at 5'11/180cm at the time i wasnt measure the very top of my head

Yep I can see 179-180 height for Aaron, he doesn't look anything under a genuine 5'10" in terms of his proportions.

He has a house near where I live and I've seen him out and about a few times over the last decade. He is NOT 6 feet tall. He's about 5'10 in boots, so possibly 5'9 in bare feet. He's handsome and he's just as rugged and muscled as he looks in film, but he is NOT tall. Using movie stills or photos to prove he's tall is deceiving because angles can look incredibly different and sometimes one person has a more relaxed stance so they appear shorter than the person next to them, etc etc. But seeing someone in real life and standing next to them is a pretty surefire way to tell someone...well, that someone isn't 6 feet.

It's kind of insulting that he'd say 6ft.
Dmeyer said on 1/May/15
I was an extra sitting right next to him on the set of thank you for smoking he was defenetly not as tall as me if he was légit 5'11 it would have Been barely noticable , so 5'10.5-10.75
cole said on 15/Apr/15
@Editor Rob: Could you add 'Thank You for Smoking'? I thought he could look a decent 5'11 in that at times - noticably taller than 5'10 range guys Adam Brody and Rob Lowe. I've had a few different impressions of this guy over the years. Sometimes I wouldn't think over 5'10.5 was possible, but then he can also look near 5'11 a fair amount.

Dmeyer, what did Mr. R guess Eckhart at?
Dmeyer said on 24/Aug/14
From wath i saw of him the absolute shortest he could be is 5'10.25-10 3/8in after 25 hours without sleep i spent 2 whole days with the Guy , mr r realy cant tell height
Logical man said on 30/May/14
They keep changing there height listings. I remember he used to be listed as 5'10. I guess in Hollywood they want people to believe your taller then what you are. He probably wears lifts I don't think none of these people's heights are on point.
Tony said on 26/May/14
He looks just level with, or slightly under Paltrow in Possesion(2002), many scenes showing them side by side full lenght.She insists on flat shoes, clearly not to surpass him. 5-9 is pretty fair for him. Very good actor, I like, but not so tall.
Mitch said on 28/Apr/14
Probably the biggest liar in Hollywood in terms of height. Bale looked like he had a couple inches on him in TDK. My guess would be anywhere from 5'9.5"- 5'10.5"
M said on 15/Apr/14
Saw him at Aus grand prix couple years back. 5-9 at BEST
James B said on 29/Mar/14
MarcusTheSwede said on 4/Mar/14
To High listing 178cm at best
Sam said on 30/Jan/14
I noticed that he seemed to have a slight edge of height at the Golden Globes on Cranston though he looks the same height in the posted photo.
lelman said on 28/Jan/14

Sometimes he looks 5'11"-6'0" with Nolan and Bale, other times he looks just 5'10".

I think he's somewhere between 5'10" and 5'11", but wears some questionable shoes. I'd say Rob's listing is spot on.

MD said on 27/Jan/14
Yeah, no, he's not "easily 6'0"." He remarked on Craig Ferguson's late night show that every stranger he meets always remarks on how much shorter he looks in person than in the movies, and he said he thought it was rude for people to offer him that back-handed compliment. He's somewhere between 5'10" and 5'11", and I'd actually put him right in the middle of that.

Deborah, I don't think you know how tall you are, really, or you actually did mistake someone else for him.
deborah said on 25/Jan/14
If this is the guy I met on Venice beach Wed. Jan. 15 surfing with a dolphin, he's taller than me and I'm 5'10". Easily 6' and as handsome a man as I have seen.
cole said on 9/Dec/13
He's currently in Oslo. I work in Oslo, so hopefully I'll get the chance to see him. Generally I get the impression that he's around the 5'10.5 mark, with Butler he can look 5'10.25 or so, but 5'10.75 isn't impossible. I'm 5'10.75, so it would be interesting to meet him.
dmeyer said on 7/Dec/13
Eckart didnt look Under 179cm butler must be Closer 187cm than 186cm eckart didnt look as short as 178cm
kevin said on 25/Nov/13
afer the butler pics i cant see him being more than 179cm
Dmeyer said on 24/Nov/13
I thaught 2cm shorter than me in person but 1 in is possible 5'10.25 is too low but 5'11 is too high 5'10.5-10.75 he could be 5'10 5/8 179-179.5cm probably 5'11.5 morning
cole said on 19/Nov/13
Can't really see him over 5'10.5 after seeing him next to Gerard Butler, Johnny Depp and Yvonne Strahovski. Might go as low as 5'10. Maybe shave off at least .25" from this listing Rob?
MD said on 1/Nov/13
That is a very interesting (and good) photo, Arch.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Oct/13
The bottom photo is the one I mean.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Oct/13
Rob check out the picture of him next to Gerard Butler. Click Here
He looks shorter than this doesn't he. Butler is around 186cm. I see a good inch less in that picture, what do you think. If he's 5'11 but looks close to 6'3" in that photo IMO.
Matt said on 9/Oct/13
5'11" seems fair. He matched up well to 6'1" Kelsey Grammer in Frasier, and never seems to suffer from the suspicions of shortness which follow 5'10"ers around (Daniel Craig, Colin Farrell, Matt Damon etc). Quibbling over that last quarter inch is less relevant than establishing he's closer to 5'11" than 5'10".
Arch Stanton said on 8/Oct/13
Looks 5'11 ish in the Dark Knight.
JAM said on 19/Aug/13
Taller1 camera angles can make people look shorter or taller. Also do you mean nex to Gerad who is 6'2? Well no crap he is tall.
cole said on 19/Aug/13
I would say 179 cm fits him. He could be a strong 179, so 5'10.75 is a perfectly fine listing. Somewhere between 5'10.5 and 5'10.75 is probably a safe bet. I would like to add that next to Gerard Butler he can look 178 cm range, if Gerard is 185-186 cm, but Gerard might have had a slight footwear advantage in the shots I've seen them in.
Emil said on 13/Jul/13
Well, 5'10.75 is actually 179.7 cm so I think its spot on
Lorne said on 16/Jun/13
I've always agreed 100% with this listing, but knowing Dmeyer has met him and pegs him 179-180cm reaffirms my belief that he's just shy of 5'11. Remember that Dmeyer is a solid 181cm himself, so 179-180 should be easy to peg. You could argue 5'10.5 at the lowest, but to me never looks a weak 179cm guy. I say 179.5-180 cm, or 5ft10.75, as listed
gsbr said on 12/Jun/13
He's taller than Thomas Jane in Thursday and I don't think anyone doubts Jane's 5'10" claim. Eckhart is at least 5'10.5".
Dirty Pitts said on 23/May/13
I agree with the consensus, this guy is 5'10".
Dmeyer said on 16/Apr/13
179cm is not impossible 5'10.5-10.75 covers the Guy i met him , he dosnt Look 5'10-10.25 or 5'11-11.25 so 179-80
Taller1 said on 23/Mar/13
Aaron Eckhart looks like a shrimp standing next to anyone in the movie "Olympus Has Fallen." He can't be over 5'10" tops.
Jack said on 21/Jan/13
[on his height] 'Normal...About 6 feet tall and a buck seventy.' - That seems very optimistic.
BigT said on 27/Jul/12
178 cm flat looks right.
Leung said on 5/Sep/07
In terms of stature I think he looks similar to Viggo Mortensen
dmeyer said on 5/Sep/07
so look at paysheck you will see affleck tower him by 3.5 in in person he looked just shy of my height
bakariman1 said on 5/Sep/07
I've only seen Eckhart in "Erin Brokovich" and "In the Comapny of Men". I would have sworn the guy would be over 6ft at least. I am shocked he's only 5'11". I guess Eckhart just has a "towering" presence. His broad shoulders and long arms give the impression that he is a tall, lanky guy. Go figure--?? I'm really surprised by this one.
dmeyer said on 25/Jul/07
i remember my comment 3 years ago were i said eckart seemed 1 in shorter than me maybe not that mush but i doubt he is a full 5'11 to me he seemed 5'10.5 max
dmeyer said on 19/Jul/07
but actualy in pics with affleck and artnet he can look a bit over 5'11 and sometimes can look a bit under so this guy might be 5'11 but he did look 1 cm shorter than me i might have been 181 that day since i was sitting alot
dmeyer said on 19/Jul/07
2 full days he was indeed a bit shy of my height i will settle for 5'10.75 becuse i use ti think 5'11 for this guy but i thaught i was just about 6 ft so he is gotta be a bit under 5'11 because if he was he would have exactly the same as me or 0.25 in shorter we had similar shoes and he was indeed 0.5 in under i thaught i was 2 cm taller but maybe i had better posture so 5'10.5 but i could be mistaking i do make mistakes of 0.75 in sometimes i dont mistake a full in but 0.5 to 0.75 i do sometimes because of posture and footwaetr
dmeyer said on 19/Jul/07
is 179 possible for this guy since he didnt look over it

[Editor Rob: yes it is a possibility, how long did you spend on set near this guy?]
dmeyer said on 18/Jul/07
he seemed a bit over 5'10 but under 5'11
dmeyer said on 18/Jul/07
hey rob aron realy didnt look over 179 when i met him we had the same 1 in dress shoes and he looked at the very least 0.5 in shorter than me is 179 possible
Anonymous said on 12/Jul/07
I stood next to him during filming for "Bill" which has yet to be released. He has horrible slouch (which was obviously for the character). After factoring in the slouch, I doubt he is much, if at all, taller than me at 5'10".
Anonymous said on 22/Jun/07
from, 21/Jun/07 aaron eckhart bumping into pedestrians while taking numerous photos of a building on the corner of Thompson and Spring at 6PM this evening. looked like he hadn't showered in days; scruffy but ruggedly handsome. and as per gawker stalker tradition" "he was shorter than i expected."
dmeyer said on 26/Mar/07
for some reason aron was shorter than me and we were both in 1 in dress shoes i aint sure he is a full 5'11 maybe bad posture
dmeyer said on 5/Jan/07
he is close to his claim
dmeyer said on 5/Jan/07
i worked with him 2 full day he looked 0.5 in shorter than me 5'11 is possible he looked closer to 179 to me but 180 is possible he shoes were normal low cut 1 inch heel he maybe didnt have thegreatest posture
Paul said on 5/Jan/07
Had on inch on Thomas Jane (5-10) in Thursday.
dmeyer said on 13/Dec/06
i stood by him for a all day and he gave me the impression to be 1 to 2 cm smaller than me we both had 1 in low cut shoes maybe bad posture but no more than 5'11
dmeyer said on 23/Oct/06
i met him he lookes in the 5'10.5 to 5'11 but he had normal very low cut 1 inch heels
dmeyer said on 17/Oct/06
he looked a lidl smaller than me so no taller than 5'11
John R said on 3/Oct/06
Looks half an inch to an inch taller than Adam Brody in Thank You for Smoking
dmeyer said on 25/Sep/06
i worked for two days with him and he was 0.5 to 0.75 " smaller than me so 5'10.75 might be closer but since he is close to wah he claims its ok
Anthony said on 23/Sep/06
He was four inches shorter than 6'3 Hartnett in "The Black Dahlia". He's a legit 5'11.
Anonymous said on 20/Sep/06
he did look very mush shorter than ben affleck
dmeyer said on 20/Sep/06
he was a lithel smaller than me so no way over 180 possibly 179
dmeyer said on 20/Sep/06
hey rob since i am about 5 fr 11 aron was defenetly 2 cm smaller than me

[Editor Rob: I was even thinking this guy could appear taller than 180!]
The Horse of FUNK said on 5/May/06
Kinda shocked this guy's 5'11. Looked like he was in 6' - 6'1 range in Erin Brokovich. Must be one of those guys who looks taller than they really are.
dmeyer said on 12/Feb/06
i met him he looks close to this mark maybe 5'10.75" but he was wearing dress low cut shoes with 1 inch heel 5'11 is very possible he looks this compare to uma and ben in paycheck
Iris said on 10/Jan/06
I thought this guy was a six footer for sure... He doesn´t look remarkably taller than Paltrow but she seems tall as well ( maybe 177)
