Rob, I understand that entirely. It's just that Cruise and RDJ are notorious lift wearers, whereas a guy like Ben Stiller, who I actually think is closer to 169 cms, is not. I just don't think it would be an issue if you "overstepped your boundaries" a tad and took their reputation for lift-wearing into account when listing their heights. That's all.
[Editor Rob: sometimes we don't know if somebody does wear a half inch or 3/4 inch lift. It is difficult to tell for the majority. When you push it to an inch lift it can start to look more obvious.]

Why is there a tendency for a lot of celebs to be laughably overlisted in the 5'8 range by Rob (e.g. Marky Mark, Tom Cruise, RDJ, Cheadle, etc.) Sure you're not getting paid off Rob? ;-)
[Editor Rob: we can't really say anything is overlisted or underlisted unless we know for a fact the height the person is measured at.]

Rob, please take a look at my added credits suggestions.
Sam said on 31/Mar/15
Could be this mark, can seem taller due to his often good posture.

Rob, could you add these to his credits?: Devil in a Blue Dress, Boogie Nights, Traffic, Hotel Rwanda, Flight and the TV series House of Lies.

Can look almost 5'09.00" at times. At other as low as 5'07.75". I think he's taler than the listed height but I suppose its accurate.

Look's 5 foot 6 inches next to George Clooney if George Clooney is 179 CMs tall.

I'm not buying 5ft 7.5. Joaquin Phoenix looked a couple inches taller in Hotel Rwanda.
Realist said on 18/May/14
169-170 cm flat Rob. 5'7.5 is probably Wahlbergs height. Joaquin is clearly taller than Cheadle by 3-4 cm. I think you should look this guy up.

Another doubt Rob,
Rob 171 is 5'7.25 and 5'7.5 similary 177 is 5'9.5 and 5'9.75. How do you distinguish ?
[Editor Rob: well 171 is 5ft 7.32, and 172 is 5ft 7.72. So 5ft 7.5 is 171.45cm, that's why it gets rounded to the 171, if it was 171.55, then the 172 would be shown, the site is showing the closest cm to the feet/inch mark.]

Spot on.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Feb/14
171 is a much better estimate I think.

With Wahlberg. That was about the same height difference in the film. I find it hard to believe they're the same height!!
Arch Stanton said on 15/Feb/14
Rob would you consider a downgrade to 5'7.5"? 5'8.5" is probably a shoe measurement. He really looked shorter than Mark Wahlberg in Boogie Nights. I think 5'7.5" might be more accurate.
[Editor Rob: 7.5 is a real possibility, I think it's fine to go with that now.]
Mr. R said on 15/Feb/14
Not even close. A weak 5-7.
Balrog said on 15/Feb/14
This guy can't be 5'8" don't know why he still listed that high.
Arch Stanton said on 14/Feb/14
Odd he looked 1.5 inches shorter than Wahlberg in Boogie Nights in the barefoot pool scene. I'd guess 5 ft 7.
Realist said on 4/Jan/14
5'6 he was towered by 5'9 Matt Damon.
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 18/Dec/13
He can look 5'7.0 sometimes.

Rob , have you seen Flight? He looks 5'7 next to Washington.
[Editor Rob: maybe 5ft 7.5]
MD said on 18/Nov/13
Shredder,

Could you post the picture of him with Ribero?
the shredder said on 14/Nov/13
Look at him next to Alfonso Riberio Rob , he looks under 5'8. Unless Alf is 5'6.5 lol.
jtm said on 13/Nov/13
he was barely shorter than matt damon. another evidence damon is under 5'9.
MD said on 13/Nov/13
I have a feeling this is going to be one of those pages - even after the evidence - that will stay stuck at 5'8" for a long time. lol
the shredder said on 12/Nov/13
His height is in shoes , he is 5'7.
Brad said on 12/Nov/13
5-7. His claim is hilarious.
MD said on 11/Nov/13
Yes, a VERY weak 5'8", like 5'7.5" or so.
Balrog said on 10/Nov/13
I think at least half inch could be shaved off. He can look 5'7" a lot.
MD said on 9/Nov/13
Rob, maybe not quite 5'8" for Cheadle?

With a 5'7.75" Ben Kingsley, and Robert Downey, Jr. in some funky footwear I'm not sure what to make of:

With 5'4" Bow Wow:

I'm thinking more 171-172cm.
[Editor Rob: Cheadle could certainly be classed as weak 5ft 8er ]
Balrog said on 23/Jun/13
Maybe 169 cm is too low but 170 would be my final guess. In the flight he's 5in shorter than Denzel. Can't see him at 5'8'' really.
Balrog said on 2/Jun/13
He's 5'6.5''. He was vissibly towered by Denzel Washigton who is under 6 foot now.
lawrence said on 5/May/13
5'7" not more its clearly seen in iron man series
T said on 26/Apr/13
How can he be as tall as 5'8" Robert Downey Jr.? Seriously, this guy is maybe 5'6.5" at the most. Look at Iron Man 2 and Iron Man 3.
lol93 said on 12/Mar/13
Weak 5'7 is correct in my opinion
Adamz said on 2/Feb/13
Think listing is too high.
Matty ^_^ said on 13/Jan/13
I seen Don about 8 or 9 months ago... Shook his hand hugged him.. Chatted a bit while his daughter was right there in Whole foods... I am 5'6 or 5'7 and we were the same height if not I was probably a tad bit taller... Celebrities heights are so boosted, he should be registered at 5'7.
Silent d said on 4/Oct/12
171cm.
Silent d said on 1/Feb/12
He is short. In rush hour 2 he was shorter than jackie chan and chris tucker. In crash, he is about the same height maybe slightly taller than jennifer esposito who always looked 5 foot 7. Next to craig ferguson he looks 172cm but he was wearing a hat. 171cm is right on.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 31/Jan/12
I saw some pics of him with George Clooney and he looked way shorter. No less than 4.5 inches...
