JGL is leaning in with Kingsley in that photo. Anyway, he looks the listed height. Not tall, not short. Comfortably average. He's small-framed though which might make people think he's "smaller."

Here he is with 5'11 Seth Rogen.

Tom Hardy deserves that quarter inch way more than JGL
an anonymous peach says on 20/Jun/15
The way I see it:

JGL is 5ft 9 MAX
Tom Hardy is 5ft 9 MIN
Owen says on 18/Jun/15
that quarter of inch is disgusting
MD says on 16/Jun/15
With a 5'7.75" Ben Kingsley:

And, that's if Ben is his listed height. Perhaps a flat 5'9" is more the case?

Even if you're not ready to downgrade him to a weak 5ft 9, at least remove that quarter inch Rob, he rarely looks it. He certainly isn't taller than Tom Hardy and might actually be edged out by him in all likelihood.
x says on 7/Jun/15
Rob do you think he's about 5'10 in shoes?
[Editor Rob: yes, there's a chance he is bang on 5ft 9]
an anonymous peach says on 23/May/15
He looks shorter than Tom Hardy who's a legit 5'9". I can't see Joseph above 174cm.
wraigh says on 13/May/15
no more than that
Damon says on 15/Apr/15
Either upgrade Tom Hardy to 5'10" or downgrade Joseph to 5'8"

I still believe in five ten, Joanne is five five, and Emma Watson should be more than Jo. Taylor Swift five eleven. Tom Anderson is going to be right on.
Gabe says on 5/Mar/15
flat 174cm
176cm is too much for him
Bishop says on 26/Feb/15
Flat 5'9".
S.J.H says on 3/Jan/15
Maybe he means 5ft10 with shoes on. bang on 5'9
Lonestar says on 15/Dec/14
Rob, how could you assume he was only 5'9.25? I thought with his good posture he always pull to look a solid 177cm guy as most people agree here.
[Editor Rob: I think 176 is probably the most I would guess him after the more I saw of him, not convinced on the 177cm mark.]
Jared says on 2/Nov/14
Speaking of claiming your shoe height as Joseph did when he claimed five ten, I think 90% of the world population claims the shoe height. Simply not many people are bothered to take a tape, make a mark on the wall and not many people needs to be measured at the doctor office. So what many do is going over a wall lineup or scale with height measuring at the mall and of course they measure with whatever shoes they have on. Talking with many people about this, most of them claimed they never had a chance to measure without shoes and this applies to actors as well.

Funny how here Click Here he can look near 5ft 11 because all the other guys are dropping a couple inches and he's stood up straight. On the subject Rob, what would you guess for Jonathan Nolan (the guy on the far right)? TO me he looks about 6ft 1.5, about an inch and a half taller or so than his brother.
Sean says on 7/Sep/14
150 range is good. I' have the same height and build as JGL, and when I was working out and building muscle, I weighed 153.
Jon says on 2/Sep/14
@RobPaul Would 155 be an accurate guess for his weight?
[Editor Rob: probably 150's]
lelman says on 15/Aug/14
He looks 5'8 next to the Dark Knight Crew. Looks shorter than Tom Hardy to me - he certainly isn't taller than him. I think he's a flat 5'9, max.
cole says on 12/Aug/14
@Editor Rob: Give him the 5'9 flat already.
Arch Stanton says on 19/Jul/14
Yeah he looked pretty impressive in Don Jon.
RAM says on 19/Jul/14
He has gotten a little buff. Did you see his arms in Don Jon?
Realist says on 6/Jun/14
5'9 tops
Sam says on 19/Mar/14
Yeah, the more I see of him, the more it seems 5'9" is a top that he can fact, he often seems somewhere a bit under.
MD says on 17/Mar/14
Something else to throw on top of the pile. Here is JGL two people to the left of 5'11" Seth Rogan:

fsd says on 12/Mar/14
this pic is from the don jon NY premiere scarlet was wearin 4 inch heels shes 5'3 ft joseph wearin a 1 inch dress shoes the diff between them is like 1 inch which makes him a weak 5'8 ft Click Here Click Here
jd99 says on 4/Mar/14
Has anyone seen don jon? For everyone claiming 5.7 to 5.8 watch it because he
cole says on 3/Mar/14
He looks the same height as Hardy, surely no taller. 5'11 Seth Rogen and 5'10 Seth McFarlane also makes it pretty obvious that he's a 5'9 flat guy at the very best.
fsd says on 26/Feb/14
i think he's somewere between 5'7.5 and 5'8 ft max because tom hardy had 1-1.5 inches on him check this link rob .
Click Here
jordydecke says on 16/Feb/14
If Rogen is 5'11 as claimed then JGL must be a bit less than 5'9, he looks more than 2 inches shorter than Rogen in some of the scenes in "50/50" - although you couldn't really see shoe advantage in those photos.
Shawn says on 15/Feb/14
Rob, I know you always try to take note of when actors make official claims. 18:50 in this video, he claims 5'10".

[Editor Rob: yes thanks I added it to the top now, I think it's clear the guy is calling his shoe height]
alfonso says on 13/Feb/14
tom hardy had an inch on him in dark night i think 5'8 ft .
kakuna says on 13/Feb/14
I've met him, and he looked 5'9" to me (would not add that quarter of an inch). My girlfriend felt he was even shorter, but I feel pretty confident that 5'9" is correct.

lelman says on 6/Feb/14
@Shawn Click Here they look quite close in height to me. Both listed correctly, IMO.
Shawn says on 26/Jan/14
He had a good two inches on Tony Danza in Don Jon, who's listed here at 5'8.5". Either Joseph needs an upgrade, or Danza a downgrade.
lelman says on 4/Jan/14
Anywhere from 175-177. Literally average height, looks a bit shorter because he has a long head.
Meltdown says on 11/Dec/13
I am going to say 175cm morning height and I'm usually spot on.
Hola says on 27/Nov/13
5'10 isnt a disproportionate claim, as stated probs 5'9.5 in the morning and rounded up. Can't blame that. Whatever the case this listing seems pretty right
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Nov/13
Easily 3in under Christian Bale. Nothing over 5ft9/175cm.
Hypado says on 26/Nov/13
Sarah says on 4/Nov/13
5'9" is about right. He's the perfect height IMO.
Angelaaaaa says on 2/Nov/13
@blanla Judging from the image you shown. Miss Moore looks close to 5'7 in heels and 2 inches shorter than Levitt. So Wrong, he is not 5'7....but 5'9.
Lorne says on 24/Oct/13
5'10 is not too bad of claim, he's 175.5-176, possible he measured near 5ft9.5 early in the day and rounded up. In any case not nearly as bad as guys like Marky Mark claiming "only 5 feet 10"!!! But 5'7-5'8 estimates are the usual crap on this website, he's solid 175cm. He makes Bale look under 6ft for sure! Considering Christian Bale is 182cm, 5ft9 flat could be closer, but 5ft9.25 is fair enough, he looks solid 5ft9 for the most part.
The Man says on 17/Oct/13
Id say he's about 5'8 and a half.
183CM says on 13/Oct/13
At his best, 5'9

julianne moore says shes 5'3". notice her heels as well as joseph's heels. i say hes around 5'7
Len says on 2/Oct/13
Looks about 5'8" in most movies.

Wasn't a lot taller than 5'3" but-obviously-wearing-heels Scarlett Johansson in Don Jon.
Kip says on 30/Sep/13
I think this height is pretty accurate when looking at photos of him with past costars. And Sam, Don Jon has been highly appraised by movie critics...I haven't seen any bad review yet.
Powerhouse says on 28/Sep/13
Sam says on 27/Sep/13
My opinion on this guy's height has shrunk the more I see of him. There's a JGL photo retrospective because of his new (badly reviewed) directorial debut. I think he's 5'9" barefoot with good posture and that maybe only in the morning...I doubt he's anything over it. There's literally only one photo in the bunch, with Lynn Collins, where he looks a little taller than that mark.

Slightly shorter says on 25/Sep/13
Shorter. He claims 5ft 10! Hahahahah
Strath says on 30/Aug/13
My 5'9 bud took a pic with this guy on the street a few years ago. And I was most shocked of how much wider and taller Levitt was in comparison since he appeared so much smaller on screen. He really did make my friend look shrimpy. Then maybe, my friend could be embellishing his height a little.
jam says on 21/Aug/13
Morell, Tom Hardy is 5'9 or so right? Chris Nolan is pretty much confirmed 5'11. He is standing taller than JGL there. I think this site is accurate.
jam says on 21/Aug/13
I have a question about knee levels. Isn't that a bad argument in general? Some people have shorter legs, but longer torsos.
JAM says on 19/Aug/13
Post it! and others are wrong he is for sure taller than 5'7. I would say this is right. His and Seth knee levels look about same to me in pics. He is 5'9.
cole says on 7/Aug/13
5'9 flat is the most I could believe.
Post it! says on 28/Jul/13
check the knee levels on the pic with Seth MacFarlane, it's obvious jgl is lifting. Dude is 5'7 morning height. He makes Brad Pitt look tall
Balrog says on 23/Jul/13
Weak 5'9'' guy.
Gracien says on 19/Jul/13
shortest 176 cm guy ever
Jack says on 12/Jul/13
Yeah I think he's just a 5'9 guy.
Juicey says on 25/Jun/13
5'8-1/2 met him in San diego at the beach we both had flip flops on he was the same height as my brother who is 5'8 1/2 he too had flip flops on
Lorne says on 16/Jun/13
Okay, first of, Macfarlane is a strong 5ft10 guy, like 5'10.25 at his lowest. As for levitt, this listing is probably spot on. Definently isn't 3 inches under Christian Bale, I'd say a solid 5ft9 guy, 176cm is fair enough
Jack says on 14/Jun/13
If Seth MacFarlane is 5'10" than Joseph is no more than 5'8-5'8.5".
Sam says on 11/Jun/13
5'9" looks generous here with 5'10"ish Seth MacFarlane...I don't recall Gordon-Levitt more than an inch shorter than MacFarlane at the Oscars but he does look it here.

Troc says on 26/May/13
Talking about proportions, if ha guy has a narrow build, he will probably look shorter, but if you watch his full body from a distaance then he will probably look taller. Now as fer as levitt's height, I don't know, looks sometimes 5'7 and other 5'10...
lelman says on 25/May/13
@mdl i'd hardly call him thin, have you seen him in his new for for Don Jon? 5'9".
Dmeyer says on 9/May/13
A solid 5-6cm under Willis who strugles to look more than 180cm today 175cm is closer
hew says on 8/May/13
does he wear lifts?
Len says on 3/May/13
He looks 5'8" in most things.
Michael says on 2/May/13
"I would say that he is 173 max.I don't understand why do you often insist that he is a tall guy."

Probably because of his slim build.

"He looks shorter than he is due to his small, narrow shoulders and small build. I would've guessed 5'7 flat if I didn't know his height."

That makes no sense; If someone's built narrower, they would look taller than they are.
Anamalech says on 24/Apr/13
Rob downgraded him by 1 cm? :P
oreo says on 11/Apr/13
178 for him same height as mine
Gheist says on 3/Apr/13
gian92 says on 30/Mar/13
he is 177 cm
megamind says on 23/Mar/13
Rob,have you seen Premium Rush? The difference between Joseph and Dania Ramirez was as same as you and Dania Ramirez was! I would say that he is 173 max.I don't understand why do you often insist that he is a tall guy.
Johno says on 23/Mar/13
I have a hard time believing gordon is 5'9+ but then that could be due to his long skull and low hanging shoulders which make him look shorter.

Gordon 5'8.25 - 5'9
Jack says on 21/Mar/13
5'9"(175 cm). Skinny frame makes him look taller. he doesn't look taller than someone like Tom Hardy to me.
Anonymous says on 19/Mar/13
I'd say more like 5'8 like me barefoot. 5'9 in shoes. decent height.
SolidSnake says on 17/Mar/13
How heavy is JGL? like 140?
Dmeyer says on 13/Mar/13
Considering willis lately is no more than 180cm levitt looks no more than 175cm
leonari says on 25/Feb/13
Great decision tho shove a cm off Gordon Levitt Rob. You're the man!
MaskDeMasque says on 25/Feb/13
Cheers for the downgrade Rob. Always thought he was 176cm.
Trip Menzell says on 25/Feb/13
After the Oscars and him standing next to the 5'10" Seth MacFarlane, I'd have to say 174-175 cm. Rob, don't you think that looks about right?

a child actor of average height. Lucky guy
dean says on 16/Feb/13
Looks 5'7 but is probably around 5'9. Interesting how build can effect how tall you look
17, 5\\\'11.5-75 says on 15/Feb/13
He looks shorter than he is due to his small, narrow shoulders and small build. I would've guessed 5'7 flat if I didn't know his height.
SAK says on 15/Feb/13
I am surprised he is average height. I thought he was 5f7 for some reason.
HU says on 25/Dec/12
He looks small because he has a smaller bone structure. Just like Daniel Craig who is really 180cm but looks short because he has a smaller face.
Drew says on 21/Dec/12
@Kevin, He looked unusually small for a 5'9.5" guy in that movie. He did look 5'9" max next to Michael Shannon.
kevin says on 9/Dec/12
in premium rush he certainly didnt look the 177cm as listed next to michael shannon.
Trey says on 7/Dec/12
I don't understand, why the upgrade? Is it to keep Dicaprio and Bale at their inflated heights? At most this guy is 175 cm.
MaskDeMasque says on 14/Nov/12

Oldman ain't 5'9 anymore. He's 5'8ish nowadays.
MaskDeMasque says on 1/Oct/12

He's not 5'8. He always looks the same height as tom hardy, who everyone agrees is a 5'9 guy.
Ron says on 30/Sep/12
I'm 5ft8 and I have pretty much the same physique and I can look taller because of that. From 500 Days Of Summer I'm almost certain he's 5ft8 (and absolutely sure he's smaller than 5ft9)
B says on 9/Sep/12
The camera is favoring Bruce a bit in those shots also Bruce might have a slight edge in footwear over Joseph.
MaskDeMasque says on 7/Sep/12
@TDK Rises

I see about a 2 inch difference there and Willis is no more than 5'11 these days... levitt is 5'9.
TDK Rises says on 7/Sep/12
Here he is listed with 5'11.5 Bruce Willis

Aly says on 5/Sep/12
I am so surprised he is listed as this tall. When I watched 500 Days of Summer he looked so close in height to Zooey, who stats 5'5'', and was wearing flats most of the movie. I swear he is 5'7"
G says on 17/Aug/12
He was 4 inches shorter than Rainn Wilson (6'1.5) in Hesher, so the listing is probably pretty accurate.
MaskDeMasque says on 5/Aug/12
based on that photo JGL and hardy are 5'9 and bale is 5'11.
Jack says on 1/Aug/12
not over 5'9"

King2000 says on 25/Jul/12
I'd say his height was about right! I'm more or less the same but only I'm a quarter of an inch away from 5"10'
MaskDeMasque says on 24/Jul/12
Does look slightly taller than Tom Hardy but Tom never seems to force his posture and JGL always seems to. i think 5'9.25 is his exact height.
KN says on 24/Jul/12
I always thought of hm as a 5.9er. Surprised to see 2 cm taller that.
MaskDeMasque says on 8/Jun/12
175,maybe 176. Looks taller due to his skinny frame.
Morrell says on 8/Feb/12
ROB, please look at this photo link Click Here Bale is 6 flat or Levitt is taller. You guys decide. Same foot wear height if you ask me.
Ras_ says on 31/Jan/12
Clearly nothing below 5'9.I do think he is 5'9.25/.5 as listed.
