How tall is Matthew McConaughey ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Matthew McConaughey height: 5ft 11in (180 cm)

American actor best known for roles in movies like Interstellar, Dallas Buyer's Club, Reign of Fire, Dazed & Confused, Magic Mike, U571, Sahara and A Time To Kill. In a 2005 People article it mentioned that "His bathrobe is monogrammed with 5'11 3/4", his exact height". Presumably this is to save him saying 6 words for every time someone asks him his height.

he is the same height as jared leto so he is 5 9.5 at best

Rob, you should add The Wedding Planner, Dazed & Confused, How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, Amistad, True Detective (TV series), Magic Mike, Killer Joe and The Lincoln Lawyer to that line. Far better known than some of the ones up there

Always had him down as 179cm. Solid-average/slighty above, but nothing more. I assume Letterman was probably just guessing McConaughey the lowest possible end of his range, which is not impossible to do if you're right in the middle of said heights, but I think he could measure a fraction or so above 5ft10. Nothing over 5ft11, which is a bit of a generous listing for him.

Zyzz, did you watch the Letterman interview? I guess not.
zyzz said on 29/Jun/15
people saying he's under 180cm are delusion. McConaughey is a solid 5'11.

Rob, do you still his claim could be the second he gets out of bed?
[Editor Rob: yeah he could measure that out of bed.]

Rob you've mastered the "neutral/safe" (politician) answer over the years, yet people still ask you daily if something is possible or not..lol


And you make ignorant statements without any evidence and actually disrespect the owner of the site.

Rob, you should bin this clown. More than 10 years of daily trolling...tragic

Claimed to be 5'11 3/4" on David Letterman a few years ago.


yeah and Letterman shot that right down and called him 5'10, for which MM had no rebuttal.

My gf met him in the gym and she's five eight. She told me that he's around five seven if he's lucky. Since he was a few inches shorter than her, he's a little guy.

ahahahahahahaha....

[Editor Rob: in Matthew's case I think it's possible. I could never buy Matthew as just 5ft 10 barefoot.]

Not sure where you learned your maths, but your story doesn't seem to check out Mr. Monk

Yeah, he certainly is five seven ;)

jimmy fallon was a good 2 inches taller, now i'm positive fallon wears lifts but MM looks no more 179cm.
pauly e said on 5/May/15
I think there is no chance he is ever 5'11.75 barefoot at any point during the day. maybe if he were bedridden for a week.

I actually laughed at these comments:) I had this visual of him springing out of bed pulling on his bathrobe and jumping on a stadometer screaming 5'11 and 3 Quarters !!

I have met countless guys who are 5'10-ish yet claim to be 5'11.5 - 6'0. I think they genually believe they are actually that height.
MD said on 20/Apr/15
How can you say he's not insecure about it when he's practically claiming 6'0" and it's literally monogrammed on his bathrobe? lol
vfbndnxnc said on 17/Apr/15
He is 5'10" and not insecure about it, can seem a little taller because of his lean body structure. Anyway, excellent actor
Paleman said on 11/Apr/15
If he says he isn't six feet then he has got to be below it. Why would anyone ever understate their height unless they're really, really tall which McConaughey definitely isn't? Woody Harrelson is a little over 5'9, and MM still looked taller than him in True Detective (not much, though). 5'10 seems too short, but 5'11 is definitely plausible.

Woody Harrelson height: 177cm
Matthew McCounaughey height: 180cm
b-mint1994 said on 16/Mar/15
He looks the same height as Nolan in some of the pictures of them together.
184.3cm said on 6/Mar/15
Was he really listed at 6'1? Sometimes he can look 5'10 flat but still 5'10.5 when straight. 5'11.75 in his running shoes.
Dr. Mantis Toboggan said on 4/Mar/15
After seeing the George Lopez interview and the slight difference between him and Woody in True Detective. I'd peg Matthew around 5'10, I am a fan of his so there is no bias.

I think it's just Hollywood, the 2 inch rule seems true for many.

He's certainly not "short" but I think all celebrities embellish a bit.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Mar/15
"if he were a legit 5'11.75, alot of people would call him 6' or 6'1."

He was listed at both of those marks early on in his career, actually.
Mr Hight said on 23/Feb/15
Just watch the Oscars...after Cate Blanchet 5'8" and the Oscar Winner 5'11", lectivo the stage, Matthew enters and you can see the difference between them using the mic as reference! No more then 5'9"!!!!
Sixseven said on 19/Feb/15
He looks shorter than Jennifer Lawrence and she is 5'7".
CDS said on 18/Feb/15
I dunno if this should go here or over in the Woody Harrelson thread, but I have to disagree with some of the comments below. In both the film "EdTV" and on HBO's "True Detective", I saw no more than a 1/2 inch-to an inch difference between MM and Woody. The photo someone shared below, separate from those two shows, definitely had at least a 2" difference between the two, but MM could've had lifts on (Woody on the other hand, doesn't seem like the type to wear lifts for some reason-??). I say MM 5'10" (maybe 5'10 1/4") and Woody 5'9.5"-barefoot end of day heights.
Darren510 said on 18/Feb/15
I use to think he was 5'10, but after watching more of his stuff 5'11 seems more likely. He looks solidly over average but not exactly tall.
pauly e said on 17/Feb/15
yeah, if he were a legit 5'11.75, alot of people would call him 6' or 6'1. i posted a pic of MM and Drew Brees (measured 6'0.25" at 7 am at the combine) and MM looked 2" less in all the pictures.

i wonder if he's even 5'11.75 in footwear, except for maybe right out of bed?
CDS said on 16/Feb/15
As mentioned in the thread- looked shorter than 5'11" Bill Paxton in "U-571" and shorter than 5'10" Danny McBride on HBO's "Eastbound & Down". Will have to side with David Letterman on his show who estimated him at 5'10" if for no other reason than, if you're a legit 5'11 3/4" you pretty much are 6 feet even, so would have no reason to claim anything other than 6 feet.
bandet said on 6/Feb/15
bornlastnight, i think you were born yesterday. He's such an easy 5ft11. Man, there some people who can't see anything right on here.
BornLastnight said on 28/Jan/15
This guy is much much shorter than 6'. On stage with some officials from my company, this guy looked like a small child. He's lucky if he is 5' 8".
THEguy said on 13/Jan/15
Great actor, not 5'11 though. He was a cm or two beneath Danny Mcbride in EB&D. Mcbride is about 5'10.75. MM is 5'10.25 - 5'10.5
Paul e said on 3/Jan/15
I agree 184.3 and weird
Weird said on 2/Jan/15
If you look at the the appearance on letterman on youtube, once DL asks him how he is, MM breaks eye contact reflexively because he knows he is about to lie.

It's nothing official, but I lived in Austin for my college years, and had a number of my friends run into this guy running in one of the parks there.
Without even being prompted, they all mentioned how small he is.

I'd be shocked if he were even a true 5'10 w/o shoes. It usually takes something significant for multiple people to question your height.
184.3cm said on 29/Dec/14
He said himself that "Ive never seen 6 foot in my life". So the man knows himself he is too far from 6' to claim it. If your sighting is true Jenna then your boyfriend aint 6'0 183cm.
He is somewhere 5'10.25-5'10.75 id bet my house on it.
Jenna said on 27/Dec/14
My boyfriend and I met him at a football game a couple of months ago. I noticed his height because I noticed he was wearing effing flip-flops!! He's the same height as my bf who is 6' and was wearing sneakers. He does have lousy posture though for somebody who looks as fit as he does. He kind of slouches. His wife (who is gorgeous) was also wearing flip-flops and she's taller than me (I'm 5'8").
Matt said on 20/Dec/14
He is probably 5'10 3/4" (179.25cm) Without shoes
Crypto139 said on 20/Dec/14
Wait he is this short? It is weird to see that I guess. I just watched Interstellar today and I noticed he was about 1 or slightly over 1 inch taller than a 5 feet 10 Matt Damon. Though he just have the proportions of a 6 feet 1 or 2 guy to me. Like he looks tall for a guy that is 5 feet 11. Maybe it's his body type, his head, or posture but he just looks tall.
