Solid 6'1. Gave one of the darkest performances of a film character with the joker.

Looked big in Batman even though he had a bad posture ,
Sam says on 4/Aug/14
Hey, the Joker is exactly my size! Hahaha

Giulio, source? DC Database claims Joker is 6ft and 160 lbs heavy.
[Editor Rob: actually in front of me DC Stars has Joker stats as 6ft 5 and 192 pounds! Batman 6ft 2 210 pounds, Robin 5ft 1]

6ft1?! Holy crap, he looked like a 5ft11 guy in Batman. Sure with bad posture,but I'm still surprised. Poor Bale- shorter than his butler,the Joker and old Freeman,even though Batman's supposed to be taller than they are.

joker is 6'4 in the comics

James B says on 16/Mar/14
6'0.75 would be bang on for his barefoot height
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m says on 10/Mar/14
Yeh, he was right around the 6ft 1in mark.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 1/Mar/14
Nah, 6ft1 range is right on for Heath.
Looks it with Matt Damon
Freddy says on 24/Feb/14
I think he was more like a strong 6ft guy, well at least thats how he always looked like to me.....he probably rounded up a to 6'1 because it sounds better than saying 'a smidge over 6ft'
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 5/Jan/14
187-188cm out of bed
Hypado says on 25/Dec/13
Same height of me, 185cm
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 21/Dec/13
I think he was a legit 1.85 m (6ft 1in) guy.
Rusty says on 14/Oct/13
He was slouching horribly in batman, which made him look shorter. They likely also gave bale bigger footwear to appear taller
afka says on 7/Oct/13
He was tall man.nearly 6'1 but probably strong 6 ft
wiltonstilts says on 17/Jul/13
He looked shorter In the dark night. Thats probably because they only wanted Christian bale to appear taller. I buy 6 01 for ledger.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 14/Jul/13
He was a full 6ft1(185.5cm) and he could look closer to 6ft2
Green says on 2/May/13
Though this dude was 6'2..guess not.
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 12/Feb/13
He had 3 inches on Billy Bob Thornton in 'Monster's Ball' - an often forgotten film as good as any when it comes to showcasing Ledger's talent. 6ft 1in (1.85).
Spud says on 2/Jan/13
Always thought this guy was like 5'10/5'11.....but very clear from batman that he is 6'1 based on the fact he about 1/1.5" taller than 5'11.5/6'0 Christian the fact that he has a thin slender build made him always appear to be taller...
Jake: 1.83 m- 1.85 m says on 16/Dec/12
Well I just saw 'Two Hands' and in each of the two scenes where he confronts Bryan Brown's (listed here as 6ft 1) character they appeared to be eye-to-eye or if anything Ledger slightly taller. In any case, Heath looked pretty tall in the film (he was 19-20 at the time).
Jake: 182.9 cm -- 183.5 cm says on 30/Nov/12
6ft 1.5 out of* bed.
Jake: 182.9 cm -- 183.5 cm says on 30/Nov/12
6ft 1.5 out od bed.
Jake: 182.9 cm -- 183.5 cm says on 30/Nov/12
I'd say 6ft 1 or perhaps 6ft0.75 (circa 1.85 m).
James says on 19/Nov/12
I think 6'0.5 is closer given how tall he looked next too jake
Anon says on 5/Nov/12
That is just silly! I was Heath's closest mate from 2006 until his far more than tragic passing. 5 feet 11, taller in shoes and 6 feet 1 inch in cowboy boots.
Missing you H.....May the Gods keep you waiting on Olympus until I get there. Love and all that bloody rubbish ;-) Your lonely mate
Joey says on 30/Oct/12
solid 6ft (183cm) without shoes I'd say.....6'1 in regluar shoes
anon says on 28/Sep/12
has never looked short to me, definitely a legit 6 feet 1...Watching Knights tale, 10 things I hate about you etc. I thought he was always 6 feet 2 or a bit!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 22/Sep/12
Looked 6ft1-6ft2 in A Knight's Tale, The Dark Knight and in Brokeback Mountain. But looked closer to 6ft(183cm) in Ned Kelly.
Lenad is sexy says on 20/Sep/12

RobertJ says on 15/Sep/12

His posture wasn't the greatest in The Dark Knight, but it was part of the shtick he adopted to portray the Joker.
Kal says on 2/Sep/12
Has anyone seen hin in Two Hands, the Australian film he did before coming to the u.s.a. He was only 19 at the time, but either australian builders make doorways gigantic, or he's not as tall as everyone claims him to be. If you watch the scene in that film where he's taking money to an elderly lady, he looks small in comparison to the doorway of her apartment, like 5'11" at most. He's got cowboy boots on in brokback, so those give him a 1.75 inch heel, which would make him seem 6'1" and that would mean that in regular shoes he would have been 6'0" even. I've watched all his films and always found myself paying attention to how tall he was in comparison to doorways, and he was always significantly shorter that a doorway in every film he did. So I say 6'0" no more, no less.
Jessie says on 26/Aug/12
6'1" seems to be about right. He was tall but not giant-like. Oddly enough he seemed shorter than Bale in Dark Knight but Bale is actually an inch or two shorter than him. Movie magic, I guess.
Rikashiku says on 24/Aug/12

The Dutch Guy. says on 14/Aug/12
