He was half an inch taller than (5'9?) Seymour-Hoffman in the devil film. But then again he only looks a couple of inches max shorter than 6'0 denzel Washington in training day. Footwear and camera angles no doubt. I'd say he's 178 cm or 5'10 bang on.

Rob how tall is Ellar coltrane?? , and could you add boyhood to the list of ethan's movies too .
Tunman said on 7/Jul/15
Actually,Nickon he gave a deceiving impression at first in Training Day although when looking at him he was about 3-3.5 cms shorter than 182-3 Washington.A weak 5'11 is the maximum arguable and 5'10 range is more likely.
Maybe 5'10.5 is perfect.
5'10.5 in my opinion
nickon said on 1/Jul/15
He looks similar to Denzel in training day. I would say 180
Danimal said on 17/Jun/15
Watching the horror movie Sinister (2012) right now. Didn't realize he has the starring role in it.

Looks taller than 5'11 here

The highest he can be is 179cm. I see him as 178cm/179cm. Was over an inch shorter than Bear Grylls.

I'd give him more a solid 5'10" to 5'10.5" barefoot, but not quite a strong 5'11", otherwise, as MD states below, he'd come across looking in the 6' to 6'1" range in shoes. It probably makes no difference, but in the movie "Gattaca", Tony Shalhoub tells his character that even in lifts he could not pass for 6'1", like the Jude Law character. A strong solid 5'11"-er could easily pass for 6'1" in lifts.
MD said on 25/Feb/15
I've never understood this listing. At a barefoot 5'11", he could come across looking legitimately taller in the right shoes. He always just looks average to me. Anyway, here he is with his recent co-star Ellar Coltrane, who is never listed above 5'7.5" on the internet, and usually just 5'7":

There are tons of other pictures out there, but what's clear is that he's not four inches taller than Coltrane. Ethan has always struck me as just 5'10".

He is closer to 5-10.25 I saw Ethan and Uma after the Oscars one night.
LNguyen said on 22/Dec/14
He looks around 5' 9.5" to 5' 10.5"
BGee said on 20/Dec/14
If he's 5'11 then how tall is his daughter? Click Here (she's 16 in this image)
[Editor Rob: maybe between 5ft 6 and 7?]
Judd said on 11/Nov/14
in gattaca it said that hawke is 5'11" and judd law is 6'1"! obviously 6'1" for jude law is out of question, i would guess he's at best a weak 5'11" and hawke looks close to him, so 5'10.5-11" is good for him!
TJE said on 8/Nov/14
Changed my mind. I'd say 5'10.5 now. He can look upper average but rarely looks tallish.
james said on 30/Oct/14
He's 5'11? Gimme a break 5'10 with shoes on is more like it
mamido said on 26/Sep/14
guys . that is a real height . i saw him beside denzel . ethan is 180 cm . denzel is 184 . i am sure about this
Sam said on 24/Jul/14
Happened to catch a few minutes of The Newton Boys on TV, Hawke and McConaughey did indeed look close in height...even though he was lead, McConaughey did not have as good posture as Hawke (even though he seems more of a slouching, mumbling kind of actor), so at times Hawke looked a smidge taller.
TJE said on 23/Jul/14
Always looked closer to 5'10 than 5'11. I'd say 5'10.25 is a better guess.
Sam said on 23/Jul/14
He's 5'10.5"-5'11" range IMO. Also looked this about this in person when I saw him in Hurly-Burly with Bobby Cannavale, Joshua Hamilton and Elizabeth Berkley.
SAK said on 14/Jul/14
5'10.5/179cm seems more accurate for him. 180cm early morning maybe.
cole said on 12/Jul/14
I'd say 5'10.5 was more his height, but he can look near 5'11.
176,2Tunman said on 30/Jun/14
Strongly doubt he's a full 5'11.I would be surprised if he turned only 0.25"shorter than Uma,more likely an inch.178-9 is more likely.
Damon said on 18/Jun/14
this confuses me. definitely doesn't look like 2.5 inch difference with 6'1.5 Jeremy Irons here

Lars said on 15/Jun/14
In dead poets society , he was a little bit shorter then Kurtwood Smith , i guess he is about 5'10 - 5'11
Arch Stanton said on 16/Feb/14
Thanks. He's quite skinny with a thin face which can often give the illusion of being tall but I see him as a weak 5'11", similar to McConaughey. You could argue 5'10" for both I guess but this looks about right.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Feb/14
Rob can you add White Fang, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight?
Arch Stanton said on 15/Feb/14
Mmm in Before the Devil Knows You're Dead he doesn't look 2 inches taller than Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Jane said on 15/Feb/14
Looks shorter than Asa Butterfield

Mr. R said on 29/Jan/14
I met Ethan at an Oscar party when he was married to Uma Thurman. In heels, she was taller than him by almost three inches. He is 5-10.5
Dan said on 28/Jan/14
He certainly looks every bit of 5'11" next to (listed) 6'0" Nicolas Cage in 'Lord of War', but Hawke is wearing combat boots while Cage is wearing dress shoes. Not sure whether that would significantly impact heights - there's never a particularly good shot to judge. However, I'd drop Hawke about a quarter inch.
jtm said on 9/Jan/14
wasn't he listed 5'10 here before? he is also listed at 5'10 in lot of sites and doesn't look taller than that.
Ted said on 31/Dec/13
He looks 5'9" in most things.

5'11" is... uhh... highly optimistic.
dmeyer said on 10/Nov/13
Did look 2.5-3cm Under denzel who was 183cm by training day time he could be 5'10.75 guy
avery_t said on 31/Oct/13
looks about two inches taller than Delpy in flat ins Before Midnight. He's wearing normal shoes. She's listed as 5' 7". He's probably 5' 10" in the morning.
Bob said on 11/Oct/13
Rob, why does he look so much shorter than this? Is it because he's so narrow shouldered and scrawny?
[Editor Rob: I don't get that impression, usually thought he can look 5ft 10 or 11, but maybe as you say, his slight upper body build and persona could give off shorter to some people.]
Quin said on 26/Sep/13
Well if you have seen the movie "taking lives" with Angelina Jolie her height is 5'8" and when shes wearing heals shes probably 5'10" and he was still taller than her so i can see him being 5'11"
Jack said on 25/Sep/13
He's a solid 5'10"
BRUTAL said on 15/Aug/13
Maybe not looking as tall as Denzel has something to do with a Director or Denzel himself wanting to make Denzel look as tall as the 6ft 3 he used to tell everyone he was a number of years ago.
cole said on 2/Aug/13
Don't believe he is a legit 5'11, I could maybe see 5'10.
Sam said on 31/Jul/13
Yeah, I think he's close to 5'11". Saw him in Hurlburly on Off-Broadway, he was around the same height as Josh Hamilton, maybe 3-3.5 inches shorter than Bobby Cannavale and a little taller than Elizabeth Berkley.
FM said on 29/Jul/13
I always thought this guy was 5'7' - 5'8" when watching him in movies. But I met in New York, and looks really rather tall in person. 5'11" is pretty accurate, maybe a bit shorter with no shoes on.
bodwaya said on 13/Jun/13
rob since you down graded denzels height at 5 foot 11 and since denzels taller then hawke shouldn't hawkes height be downgraded to 5 foot 9
[Editor Rob: denzel's only been changed half inch as I think he's dropped a little and around 182 range now.]
truth178cm said on 20/Apr/13
when I saw him on film I thought he was my height (177-178cm).
Jer1 said on 8/Apr/13
Hmm, I thought commented on him years ago but I don't see it here. Anyway, I did see him in person once on the sidewalk in Manhattan and I was slightly taller than him at 5'10". I would say he's closer to 5'9. I remember thinking he did look shorter in person.
Too said on 16/Jan/13
He looks abut 175-178, 180 is so incredible...
Scott 5\'11. said on 12/Jan/13
I agree with James. He was definitely noticeably shorter than strong 6 foot tall Zel.
James said on 12/Nov/12
No WAY did he look 5'11 next too denzel washington
Scott said on 15/Oct/12
No way. He looked a solid 2 inches shorter than 6'0.5 denzel washington in training day. He's 5'10 for sure maybe slightly shorter.
Silent d said on 7/Oct/12
I doubt he is 5 foot 8 jojo unless he wears massive lifts in movies and interviews.
jojo said on 6/Oct/12
Saw him in person. I'm 6ft with no shoes and he was quite a bit shorter. I say 5'8
Silent d said on 2/Oct/12
He was pretty tall next to craig ferguson. He looked about 5 foot 11. I always thought he was 5 foot 9 next to uma thurman but after seeing the late late show with craig ferguson, he could be 180cm. I'll stick with 179cm. Taller than expected.
Mr. R said on 7/Jun/12
Closer to 5-10. Met him on Oscar night when he was still married to Uma.
E said on 5/Jun/12
in regular footwear uma thurman always looked an inch taller than him and in heels she looked a lot taller. If she is 5'11" like you have listed I would believe 5'10" for Hawke.
