Hey Rob, if an 20 year old guy sleeps at 173-172.8 and when he wake up 175-174.7.
really, how tall is this guy?
[Editor Rob: a comfortable 5ft 8.]

An honest 5' 8" man, don't see that very often. Most guys around that height will try to claim 5' 9" or even 5' 10"

5 foot 8. Her was a weird movie but i liked it.
Heylo said on 4/Mar/15
Funny how I just saw some of his movies and wondered about his height. I thought he looked average or slightly under most of the time so I guessed 5'9, a little surprised that he's "only" 5'8 (to me, 2cm can do a lot of difference)
MsKitty said on 28/Feb/15
Watching Her - great film, btw, and brilliant acting from JP - anyway he looks relly tall next to Amy Adams. I would've guessed 5'10.
Yahoo said on 22/Feb/15
He looks pretty short in his movies. I wouldn't give no more than 5'7.5"
Adamz said on 4/Feb/15
yeah, jeff hes probably 174cm (68.5")
Jeff said on 19/Jan/15
The tallest 5'8 I've seen so far (with Sean Penn maybe). A quarter or half an inch over the mark isn't out of the question.
Adamz said on 30/Nov/14
dude does not care at all about his height. looks average rather than short in films. a genuine 5'8" guy can swing an average-ish look. He proves it.
Realist said on 14/Oct/14
@InLA i take my opinion back. Forgot about his posture and usually decent footwear. 5'8 is ok not .25 though. He has got terrible posture. I had the same opinion about John Cassavetes. But u won't get a bigger admirer of Phoenix than me. And i am so glad he did'nt do Boogie Nights, it would'nt have suited him. Diccaprio or Wahlberg were right for it. The Master was just plain brilliance.
InLA said on 9/Oct/14
I am 5'7.5" on the dot. I was wearing ballet flats and he was wearing tennis shoes. He has abysmal posture, but was at least half an inch taller than I. The dude's got a commanding on-screen presence, and seems a lot bigger, which I guess is what really matters in his line of work.
Realist said on 23/Sep/14
Rob until a month back i would have said 174 strong 5'8 but now i think i wont peg him above 172 cm with Emma Stone who is max 5'6 and she has humble footwear compared to him. I think his posture has become worse and worse over the months since The Master.In 2002 after pics with Mel Gibson i would have given him 174 but with Emma Stone no more than 5'7.75. But the angles may be tricky so no more than flat 5'8 172.72.
Realist said on 7/Jun/14
Hey Rob, what height do you think he sleeps at ? Is he 5'8.25 ? Rob if an 18 year old guy sleeps at 171.3-171.8. What height can he claim ? He wakes up at 6:30 A.M. and sleeps at around 11:30-12 A.M. . Is this guy a legit 5'8 or 5'7.75.
[Editor Rob: I think an honest 5ft 8, he might not dip below it]
Realist said on 29/May/14
@Drew are you a man or a woman, it depends. I am about the same range as Rob, but i am 18, broad shouldered and weigh 74 kgs, little overweight not much. I dont look overweight at all, depends on your structure, very lean people with a lot of weight can look much fatter than a broader a person with the same weight.
Drew said on 26/May/14
@Realist, 145 pounds is far from sickly thin, it is well within the average range for his height. I am 174cm and 59kgs and even then I am still borderline of average weight.
Realist said on 21/May/14
In The Master he is probably about 65-66 kgs, he looks sickly thin. Another reason is because unlike Rob who is also quite thin (god only knows how he maintains it, thumbs up Rob), he is not slender, he (Joaquin) has a wide body , so his thinness appears to be more compared to Rob whose body suits a naturally lean figure. I am comparing him to Rob because i thought its the best example to explain his thinness in The Master. If you notice him in Her, The Immigrant, We Own The Night, Reservation Road etc. he looks quite stocky (not fat but healthy overweight within a good BMI).
Realist said on 4/May/14
Rob i think he is gonna be the youngest actor on your website to have a current height and peak height. I think he is gonna lose an inch within 5 years. So peak:174 estimation at 45:171-172 and very old(70s-80s):169-170.
Lipton said on 18/Mar/14
Some places say 174 cm, but i doubt it a little bit because he's listed as 173 cm here.
He can look shorter though. Is 171-172 cm possible for Mr. Joaquin? Strong 5'7" ...
Realist said on 18/Mar/14
MASsacre He is 100 % taller than walberg. Definite 5'8.Rob i am 172.6 at 10 pm and 174 exact when i wake up. Can i be called a legit 5'8 guy. Could you mistake 172 cm guy with 173 ones ?
tony said on 17/Mar/14
No way. I can't see 5'8 in him. 171.5 will be right.
MASsacre said on 10/Mar/14
In We Own The Night Phoenix looks a bit shorter than "same height" Wahlberg, so i don't know if he's really 5'8... what do u think?
Arch Stanton said on 19/Feb/14
Rob can you add The Master?

Silent d says on 6/Nov/13
5 foot 8. He looks so cool. He has got this i'm cool look. Underrated actor. He is one of the best. Should have an oscar by now.

Great actor, yes, but I don't like the look of him, he looks smug and arrogant and looks like he'd be an obnoxious douche. Looks 5'8" in The Master.
Samuel said on 2/Feb/14
What about 174 cm?

Looks 5'8, if not more like 5ft 7.75.
Blaze said on 1/Feb/14
I've always thought he was like 6'1. lol I'm wrong
Adamz said on 26/Jan/14
could have claimed 5'8" because he is 5'7" or something and close enough to fool us...
Len said on 23/Jan/14
He's honest about his 5'8" height, which is somewhat rare among actors, particularly shorter ones.

But his most memorable moment may be that disastrous Letterman interview, for better or worse. Too bad, as his acting has improved considerably from earlier in his career.
Realist said on 6/Jan/14
Solid 5'8 terrible posture, the guy has not maintained himself well.He looked hot in 2000-2003 period, though his acting has improved a lot.
Samuel said on 16/Dec/13
Looks more like 5'7 in Clay Pigeons, but I might be wrong also!
KLtdf said on 14/Nov/13
No more than 5'7.5"
Yves said on 7/Nov/13
He could be strong 5'8, he may be the tallest of 5'8 just reached it's maximum, but I would say he's 5'9.5, he has a very strong body structure.
john said on 28/Sep/13
He looked really tall in Walk the Line, I'm surprised to find out he's this short.
Samuel said on 24/Sep/13
I read 174 cm on a Swedish site once. 5'8.5.
JB said on 15/Sep/13
He looks taller than Mark Walberg who is also supposed to be 5'8". Joaquin could probably pass for 5'9" if he wanted to. He's probably 5'8.5" and being modest and rounding down.
Powerhouse said on 22/Jul/13
Strong 5'8
Gregg said on 20/Jul/13
he is 5 feet 7 inches,just like most of Hollywood
cole said on 25/Jun/13
If he's a legit 5'8, Mark Ruffalo can't be more than 5'7.5.
mugwort said on 18/Jun/13
What ever height Joaquin Phoenix is he can sure act convincingly. Loved him in the Master.
jtm said on 31/May/13
looks the height he claims. most people his height claim 5'10.
Meg said on 31/May/13
Barely 5'8. Everyone who has seen him in person comments on how short he is.Guys also lie about their height so if he says he is 5'8,it's more like 5'7 but 5'8 in boots
Late 187cm said on 9/Apr/13
Wow, I would have imagined he wasn't far off Cash's height. Obviously not.
doc said on 22/Feb/13
anon, it was probably because he was preparing for his role in The Master that he was so thin. Awesome story though I hope it's true!
hd said on 2/Dec/12
He looks about average.
kevin said on 7/Oct/12
i would add 0.25 inches cause hes more like a solid 5ft8in.
Johnnyfive said on 17/Sep/12
I thought he was at least 5'10 for some reason. Love the honesty on this guy.
true said on 12/Sep/12
the only actor in hollwood that has been honest about his height. to me, he looks like a legit 5'8 bloke without shoes.
C.G.Livingstone said on 7/Feb/12
Worked on TV series /films in Aussie and NZ....early to mid 80s. Neither bloke very big, probably 5'8" to 5'10" max...but both blokes strongly built.
