Zac Efron's height is 5ft 8in (173 cm)

American actor best known for roles in High School Musical, Hairspray, 17 Again and The Lucky One. In Seventeen magazine (Dec 2006) he said "I'm only 5-8", although recently has tried saying 5ft 9 and in 2010 with increased fame has come ever increasing height: "I'm only 5ft 10in"

John86.....You're a wise man. totally agree.
SAMMY DERRICK says on 6/Jan/15
@5'8 he is three inches shorter than the average Disney pretty boy 5'11 from my research.
John86 says on 28/Dec/14
He only looks 2.5" shorter than 5'11 Rogan in Neighbors - pretty sure the guy is minimum 5'8 but possibly even 5'8.5".

I can't see him as under 5'8 because of this. If he was wearing lifts on set all the time then this would be knowledge on set and word would have gotten out like with Robert Downey.
Celebheights 188 CM says on 28/Dec/14
If he's only 5'8", them how come he only looks four inches shorter than John Cusack (who you have listed as being 6'2")?
Joe says on 23/Dec/14
Around 5'8 me thinks. His build can deceive some people.
marcus says on 20/Dec/14
yea this guy isn't tall, he looks average a lot but he can look kinda short next to 5'10/5'11 guys, seth rogan looked a good 3 inches taller, no taller than 5'8

@Zac Efron is 5'9": No
Zac Efron is 5'9" says on 4/Dec/14
He was 5'8" during his High School Musical days, late teens/early twenties, he's 5'9" now though.
Bishop says on 3/Dec/14
JJ says on 1/Dec/14

I think it depends on how you carry yourself. I was measured at the doctor to be just under 5'8 barefoot. But people always assume I'm 5'10. I claim 5'9 all the time, and people acutally think I'm shortchanging myself.
Bradi says on 12/Nov/14
I still peg him at 5'7''.

Would love for Rob to meet him someday though...
John86 says on 1/Nov/14

I don't claim 5'9 simply because it isn't believable. In the afternoon I measure in at 5'7.5" (measured on a flat floor, barefoot with a block of wood, standing away from the wall - close enough to a stadiometer ;)) I have had people ask if I'm 5'6/7 and doubt me if I claim 5'8.

It simply isn't feasible for us short guys to lie about our height. I've noticed that men in the 6 foot region are free to throw a couple inches on their height and most women will believe them because they are already 'towering' them - as a result they are not very good at distinguishing the specific height difference. Short guys however are seen as 'tiny' and this leads people to underestimate us a lot of the time, women do this more so due to the way they see short men. I've had a 5'5 girl tell me I'm the same height as her when I clearly had a good 2.5" on her, her words being 'but you are like the same height as me so you can't be more than 5'6'. And no, she was not trolling me.

Anyway let's not derail this page too much - I still peg Efron at 5'7.5" evening height.
Realist says on 30/Oct/14
@John86 John its not only in the west but its happening over here to (india). With youngsters including exchanging students i barely reach average at 171.5 or 5'7.5 . So i do understand what that means but guys like us at 5'7.25-5'7.75 would usually claim 5'9 .
Josh says on 30/Oct/14
I put my money on 171cm
John86 says on 28/Oct/14
Honestly, he looked a little over 2" taller than 5'5 Dave Franco in Neighbors. I would say he's a legitimate 5'7.5" guy at nighttime, which makes sense as this is the bare minimum height (2.5" deviation from the average) that a young white male can get away with before being seen as 'that short guy'. Yes he will still face heightism, yes he will still be remarked upon as short, but he isn't short enough to face relentless remarks on the issue.

As a 5'7.25" guy myself, I'm sticking with 5.7.5" evening height for Efron.

watch this video Zac is smaller than the girl
it must be no more than 5'7

Yeah "Me", those shoes he has look like the same ones, i ordered on Flipkart. The one i ordered says it gives 7 cms. That means it would give anywhere from 5.75-6.25 cm , cause the lift i have says 2.5 inches i.e. 6.4 cm. The minimum i may be is a flat 171.00 cm and tops about 172.5 cm, i say 171.5 cm and it gave me about 177.2 cm, i.e. 177.2-171.5=5.7 cm but i could be close to 172 at times so maybe 5.9-6.1 cms. Its varying.

So assuming Zac's lifts are the same (i am sure they are lifts though) he looks a bit taller than Ellen. So lets say if his shoes give him 2.5 inches he looks about 5'9.5, so he is a flat 5'7. But what i think is his shoes give him about 2 inches. So he is 5'7.5 (highly likely). Though the video in comparison to Ellen (not the lady in the audience cause her height is unknown to us), Zac is not more than flat 5'8 tops. We need more flat ground pics. Those pics with Dave Franco already say a thousand words.
word1234 says on 27/Oct/14
@bandet, I don't entirely disagree with 5'8 but I feel that is more zac with shoes. There is definetly enough evidence that suggests zac is in the 5'7.25 5'7.75 range.
184.3cm says on 25/Oct/14
5'10 in elevator boots from Don's maybe. Maybe next year 5'11 in. Looks this listing in everything.

Okay. Marcus. You just be right because you said so. Well I disagree. 5ft8 easy, as Rob says, who's kind of the specialist.
MarcusTheSwede says on 19/Oct/14
He is Five Seven nothing else more then that.
bandet says on 17/Oct/14
Zac is going to go down in history with a smaller listing than his height. He is an easy 5ft8. People - such as 'truth' can't see it unfortunately.
Clumsy says on 12/Oct/14
Solid 5'8" guy
andre says on 11/Oct/14
with 5ft10.5 or 5ft11 david backham he looks 5ft7.5
Danny says on 16/Sep/14
Zac looks 5'7 without shoes. I think 5'8 is the highest he could claim to be.
Realist says on 26/Aug/14
Here another pic i don't know edited or not with Logan Lerman, if not edited Zac is max 171 maybe less. But i have a feeling this pic is edited.

Dave says on 12/Aug/14
Thomas Lennon is 172 cm. Here Zac is wearing converse + maybe lifts. So I think he is under 173 cm. 171 or 172 max.

Realist says on 10/Aug/14
@Jeff Angle is bad he can be minimum a flat 5'7. So they are most likely the same height 171.

With 5'7.25 Emily Ratajkowski, they are wearing the same kind of shoes.

Hi Rob, is the height listed on your site with or without shoes on?
[Editor Rob: without shoes]

What do you think Rob ?
satchy says on 7/Aug/14
with jared leto he looks 5ft 7 max Click Here
John86 says on 6/Aug/14
Word1234, that is one picture where you can't even see their footwear nor can you know how equal their posture is as they are both posing. A video is much better evidence, as it covers a wider range of angles and in the sketch I am referring to they are both standing straight up. I still think 5'8 flat.
Bill says on 6/Aug/14
I think 5'7 and 3/4 barefoot is dead on for this guy
Word1234 says on 1/Aug/14
Hey john I'm not cool enough to know how to create a click here link but go to this site and scroll down Click Here

Zac does not look 5'8 I know the video you're talking about and I agree in that video he looks to be 5'8 but I don't understand how he can look so small in that picture!
John86 says on 1/Aug/14
To add to Word1234's comment, Zac actually looked a flat 5'8 when barefoot in that sketch with Seth Rogan (I believe the video is posted further down). As said, I'm 5'7.25" bare height and there's no way I would have been as tall next to a 5'11 Rogan as Zac was.
Word1234 says on 30/Jul/14
Hey rob don't you think there's enough evidence of zac with celebs like piven, Jonnah hill, Ben stiller, etc to prove he's more of a 171-172cm guy? I'm mean there's no question he's 5"8 in shoes but barefoot I believe he's 5"7.5-5"7.75 what do you think?
[Editor Rob: I think at times any guy can look taller or shorter than their height, Zac at times could pass for under the 5ft 8 mark but I'm not as convinced he is]
John86 says on 30/Jul/14
It's refreshing to see such an attractive celebrity around my height (I'm 5'7.25" evening height). Whilst I'm sure he still gets height jokes and plenty of women would look down on him were it not for his celeb status because of his height, it's still encouraging to know that I'm not alone.
Tyler says on 28/Jul/14
Rob don't you think he's more like 5'7.5?
Snake eyes says on 26/Jul/14
I met Zac Efron in Los Angeles at the Grove and I can say that he is 5'7. He was wearing converse chucks and I was wearing vans shoes and I was half an inch taller than him with my vans on and I'm 5'7.5. Rob he needs a downgrade to 5'7
Realist says on 23/Jul/14
Guys some photos of him and Josh Hutcherson dont help him one bit. The difference b/w Hutcherson and Logan Lerman looks the same as between Efron and Hutcherson. Adam is right 5'7.5 at best maybe even 5'7.25.

172.5 cm
Word1234 says on 19/Jul/14
Zacs got to be only 5'7.5 look at pictures with a 1.72cm Jeremy piven. He's got like a good cm on efron.
Realist says on 12/Jul/14
@the shredder 5'8 minimum is optimistic. 5'8 maximum sounds more like it.
Realist says on 11/Jul/14
Rob can u start a page on Hunter Parrish, Luke Hemsworth and Lucas Till.
Realist says on 10/Jul/14
@John86 Its difficult to judge 2 cm, i am sometimes not able to judge 176-77 guys with myself despite being 171-172. I don't think he is an evening 173 like Rob, he has a superb built and proportions making him seem taller. He is probably my height.
the shredder says on 9/Jul/14
Yea to hell with these 5'7 claims , 5'8 minimum .
John86 says on 8/Jul/14
5'8. As a 5'7.25" male (evening height) I can say with certainty this guy is at least 0.75" taller than me.
Splinter Cell says on 8/Jul/14
pretty much the same as you rob don't you think? do you see any photos with him some celebrities that you've been with? ive seen a couple and I think you two pretty much the same. 5'8 or 173cm. no lower than that, or higher.
[Editor Rob: I think when Zac came out with his 5ft 8 claim he was honest...then fame got to his head and he added 2 inches. He's now in the Mark Wahlberg category, another member of the 2-inchers Squad.]
be serious says on 6/Jul/14
In the pictures with Michelle Rodriguez he is clearly taller than three inches.
She is listed at 5.5 so he has to be at least 5.8 which IMO is right
Max says on 4/Jul/14
Saw him in L.A. he is a weak 5'7"
Altay says on 1/Jul/14
I'm sure he is shorter than 5'8".
5'6" or 5'7" maximum!
Realist says on 25/Jun/14
Rob do u think he has grown since HSM 1 a little maybe 2 cms? He looks 5'5-5'6 in Summerland.
[Editor Rob: I think he reached 5ft 8 around hsm1 but can't really see him looking anymore than that]
ziaz says on 20/Jun/14
honestly i'm a little bit confused of his height . i think he is more than 5'8 . in my opinion , when he was playing in 'the awkward moment' movie . his height is almost same like miles teller 6'0 . whereas 5'8 is only 172cm and 6'0 is 183cm . and in the other hand when you search in google "skylar astin and zac efron" there is a pict that describe zac efron is taller than skylar when in fact skylar astin's height is 5'10 that mean skylar astin must be taller than zac efron. I'm really confused and curious about it . before i read all your opinion guys i have tried to look for the truth . that's why here because i just want to know about your opinion in my statement
Realist says on 18/Jun/14
Rob is this photo edited ?

[Editor Rob: looks a bit like it to me. Even some agencies have edited photos before releasing them for publications...]
Realist says on 15/Jun/14
Rob is there any chance of u going to LA or him coming to UK, we really need this guys pic. If youd have noticed except Booboo Stewart none of the ex-teen stars have met u. Taylor Lautner, Efron etc. I think they are well aware of u.
[Editor Rob: jenny actually got close to him lol...well 10 feet away I think, but you can't really say much at that distance.]
Realist says on 12/Jun/14
Ok, Rob would u atleast agree he is more 5'7-5'8 rather than 5'8-5'9.
[Editor Rob: I think he is pretty near that 5ft 8 mark, he can look above and below that mark, but then with enough photos I think he is nearer the 5ft 8 he claimed, it is funny he added 2 inches though.]
Mack says on 11/Jun/14
5'7" barefoot, which is the only true measurment of height obvoiusly as shoes are not part of your frame. Needs to be downgraded to 170-171cm. Very suprised by his current listing
Taylor says on 10/Jun/14
I think he's somewhere between 5'8" and 5'9" but closer to 5'8". However, that 2010 quote on top of the page is actually incomplete. He said he's "only 5'10" with shoes on" which would be basically identical to his 5'9" claim.
Realist says on 10/Jun/14
Rob I finally have to disagree with u here.I have been seeing a lot of his pics lately. While Davenport Franco is not wearing lifts this guy, clearly has heeled shoes and looks about 1.5 inches taller.That means in flats he wouldn'nt be more than an inch taller. Max for him is 5'7.5 or 5'7.25. He is shorter than Schilling. Looks a solid inch more than Jonah Hill.
Realist says on 5/Jun/14
He is 171 cm no doubt about, 5'6 is impossible. I dont thing 5'8 is borderline short, 5'7 is more borderline short. 5'8 guys are able to pull of average in most countries. He is 5'7.5 , James McAvoy looks borderline short at 5'7.25, Jamie Bell (more 5'6.75), Angus T Jones,young Martin Sheen, Robin Williams (even more because he is stocky) look borderline short.
stefff says on 2/Jun/14
He does look 5'8".

5'8" is a tough one on this website. It's borderline short. Celebs who are 5'8" try to pull off looking 5'9" or 5'10", while the commentators on this site try to downsize them to 5'7" or 5'6".
5'10man says on 30/May/14
I have met him in New York previously. I am 1.77-8m and he looked at least an inch and a half shorter. I say a solid 5'8/ 173 cm with a slightly thicker heeled shoe than I myself was wearing.
Nick says on 27/May/14
Rob I really think he is shorter than 5'8 Taylor Schilling. Don't you ?
Click Here
Realist says on 24/May/14
Rob, he never really looked a full 5'8. He is more like a strong 5'7. I think he is about 172 at 2-3 pm at the time you probably judge height, his lowest is a high 171. Can u also have a look on the other 5'8 guys like Wahlberg and Downey. 5'7 to 5'9 seems to be the most tricky area on ur site.
tom says on 22/May/14
Rob, If Dave Franco is 5'5.75, don't you think Zac is more like 5'7 ?
Take a look at this picture, both are wearing the same kind of shoes :

[Editor Rob: in moving shots it can be harder to say, in standing shots with dave, I think he looks about 5ft 8]
Realist says on 18/May/14
@MrGreen : Mr Green you lack subtlety. Seriously. Nobody is calling the guy ugly. A little bit of fibbing is ok. No one minds that, Rob is just wanting others to know how tall these guys stand. By the way many people can get a killer look through make up and weight loss. Look at Efron himself. Have you seen him at 17-18 he looks like a joke. He cultivated himself.
Matt says on 17/May/14
You comment is just stupid.
This site is called "celebheights".
What did you expect?
If Zac Efron gets you wet go and post this in the appropriate forum or mail him and let him know about it.
Otherwise, stfu & gtfo.
MrGreen says on 12/May/14
All you men on here arguing about Zac Efron's height should be ashamed of yourself...

With that being said He's a solid 5"8, maybe a even little above that. Either way, your Girlfriend would drop her panties in a sec for him so who really cares about his height.
Realist says on 11/May/14
@John from 8/May/14 Its lower average range. Till 5'7 youre fine below that it can be a little tight. But dont worry about girlfriend situation a suitable height for a woman with you would be from 5'3 to 5'9. Youll find plenty. I vary from 172-175 just fine. I am a guy by the way.
Damon says on 8/May/14
He appeared on the Tonight Show with Seth Rogen where they did a bit dressed as girls and they were all wearing flat footwear.

Click Here

Look at about the 1:50-2:00 mark. Efron comes in and stands next to Rogen and Fallon. All three are wearing completely flat footwear and Efron looks noticeably shorter.
jb1987 says on 8/May/14
Zac was in a german TV show a couple of days defore. He stands in an Elevator during the interview with one of the hosts. The host is 6'3. He looked liked a shrimp compared to him. 5'7 nothing more... I Know the other host personally...he is 5'9 like me and looks definetly 2 inches over zac compared to the taller host.
John says on 8/May/14
I'm 1.71m in the morning and 1.69m in the evening. I average at 1.70m. Is that short or below the average range?
ekt says on 7/May/14
he's about 5'7- 5'7.5
Realist says on 6/May/14
@Bear Compare him to more realistic examples between 5'4 to 6'4. Even 6'0 feet guys would look tiny in front of Strahan. Its the photographers strategy to make him look taller. In real life though its another story.
Jason says on 6/May/14
Zac is clearly wearing elevator shoes (not just lifts) in this photo. The look how steep the angle of the front his shoes are, where the laces are, compared to how long and flat the toe section is. I have a pair of 3" elevators and they look almost identical.

The girl he is standing next to is 5'8" and wearing what looks like 4" heels. So if he is wearing 3" shoes and is still an inch shorter, 5'7" sounds right.
Bear says on 5/May/14
Sorry, but 5'8"? No way. Saw him next to Michael Strahan and he's nearly a foot shorter, hitting Strahan about chin high. He and Kelly Ripa saw eye-to-eye on Kelly and Michael and she's stretching it to be 5'3" - actually, she's about 5'1".
jon says on 4/May/14
Did he really say he's 5'10? Ahahahahaha! Why do short guys that are rich, famous, and have probably been with tons of beautiful women still feel the need to lie about their height? Me and my friend were looking at a photo of him standing next to the 5'11 Seth Rogen. My friend guessed he's 5'6 and I guessed 5'8. Of course, I was right.
Damon says on 3/May/14
I think Efron is strategic about his lift-wearing. When it comes to premieres and big press events, he slabs on 1-2 inches. But, when he's walking around town, he doesn't seem to care much.
Any guess as to how tall his younger brother might be?
Click Here
Consistently looks taller than him in photos.
Maybe 5'11 range, Rob?
[Editor Rob: not seen anything on his brother, he looks a few inches taller so near that could be possible]
Realist says on 29/Apr/14
Looked 171 cm with Miles Teller.
MD says on 29/Apr/14
This guy is such a lift wearer. lol He was at his newest movie premiere the other night looking nearly as tall as Seth Rogan and pulling 2.5"/3" on Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
Matt says on 25/Apr/14
I think this guy is 171cm bare footed.
His torso and lower body seem evenly proportioned. His head is normal size, neck is neither long nor short.
173cm max with regular shoes on.
Surely a short guy that does not seem taller.
I'm 174cm and I have bigger torso than my lower body.
Actually, my thighs are chubby and small. I look 170cm because of my build but I am 174cm.
I think this guy has great proportions but he's short.
He's also insecure about his height, that's why he wears heels and lies about it.
I'm insecure too so I know how he feels.
(Wish I was 179cm).
Damon says on 25/Apr/14
I just watched a pre-screening of 'Neighbors' with Seth Rogen and Dave Franco. He spent a good deal of it barefoot and there was a noticeable difference between him and Seth Rogen. The listing here seems pretty spot on
Gaza2121 says on 24/Apr/14
174.5 cms? I'm about that at night, just claim 5'9 " it's close enough.
Valo says on 17/Apr/14
I think 5ft 8in is fair. But I still would say closer to 5ft 7in. Here Zac is with Michael B Jordan who is 5ft 10.5in.
Zac is tip toeing and is about the same height. But if you look closer you can see he also wears heels. Click Here I'm not sure about Efron..he often wears heels. Sometimes he look like 5ft 10in and sometimes (but very rarely) about 5ft 7in. In my opinion he's between 5ft7 and 5ft 8.
MD says on 15/Apr/14
With 6'0" Miles Teller at the MTV Movie Awards the other day:

Click Here

Just really adding it for reference, as he had on some dress shoes/boots that while they weren't suspicious or ridiculously heeled still seemed more heeled than your average dress shoe.
MD says on 14/Apr/14
@Realist, perhaps you misread Ian's post. I don't see anywhere where Ian was lamenting and crying about his height, at least in not in a really direct way.
Dom says on 13/Apr/14
strong 5'8"
Realist says on 11/Apr/14
Relax Ian, 5'8 does not mean you guys suck. I think Californian people are quite cool. I am of South Asian heritage and 174,broad shouldered and unconventional so i understand the sentiment. Some east european nations like Russia or Belarus are not very tall either. says on 6/Apr/14
he is about 5'7 with a very good posture,fit body and small head. doesnt look short at all. looks more like a 5'10 guy lots of time
Realist says on 4/Apr/14
Rob i think people will agree we have got to reduce him to 172 cm atleast.
Sean says on 1/Apr/14
Do you think he wears a little lift or does he just over exaggerate?
[Editor Rob: he does try to hold great posture at times, with a bit of extra hair he probably thinks that counts towards the 5ft 10]
Adamz says on 29/Mar/14
not a true 173er
Realist says on 20/Mar/14
Rob has done a great thing downgrading Ruffalo. I think its time to downgrade Downey Jr., Efron, Mark Wahlberg. THe only true 173 are Joaquin Phoenix, Gary Oldman,Tom felton. Rupert Grint is already on 172 which is correct.
fsd says on 9/Mar/14
i think he's a weak 5'8 ft prob closer to 5'7.5 ft.
Realist says on 8/Mar/14
At what height does he wake up ? Whats his height at 10 pm ?
Realist says on 23/Feb/14
Rob, need a downgrade, i change my words. Hunter Parrish claims 5'7 and zac is max 1/2 an inch taller.In 17 again movie and premieres they are around the same height.
Powerhouse says on 22/Feb/14
Looks to be a strong 5'8.... he's probably closer to 5'8.5 than a flat 5'8.
truth says on 11/Feb/14
I was 177cm at 18, now very close to 179cm but stopped around 19-20.
truth says on 11/Feb/14
If he was 170cm at 18 probably would be lucky to gain more since 18 is average, 23-25 is deadline. I think he is 171cm. 5ft8 is slightly optimistic and 5ft9+ is laughable. 171-172cm I could buy, 170cm minimum.
satchy says on 11/Feb/14
he is 5ft 7
Realist says on 6/Feb/14
At age 18 in HSM he wasnt more than 169-170. But this listing is correct most guys i notice gain about 2-3 cms after 18. If lucky maybe 4-6 cms. He was 173 in New Years Eve definitely.
Luci says on 5/Feb/14
@Lorne Nice plagiarism. All of you are freaks, btw.
Lorne says on 31/Jan/14
Him and Schilling really do look identical, considering footwear. Funny how fame increases height; from an honest 5'8, to a questionable 5ft9 with fame, and now a fantastical 5ft10 with increasing fame! And he's not the only one, it happens to a lot of people. I wonder if maybe PR makes them add an inch or two, or does being famous make you an automatic douche? Hmm...
chrisssss says on 31/Jan/14
Well he def wears lifts, seth rogan dwarfed him at the vmas, 5'8 for sure
truth says on 17/Jan/14
5ft7-5ft8,nope it is the other way around bandit, you do not understand.

@MD agree, I think he's in the same height range as Wahlberg, he always looks 5'8, but his posture is impeccable, and his co-stars usually aren't. 5'7.5-5'8. With franco you could argue 5'7, but franco has a lot of mannerisms that make him appear taller (lifting one foot which adjusts the hip etc)
Emily says on 24/Dec/13
In the picture his head length seems to be about the same as Taylor's. Does that mean she has a bigger head, or he has a smaller head? 9 inches?
MD says on 20/Dec/13
He honestly doesn't strike me as "really short," but I'm also not sure he's a full 5'8", either. He's close, though, I'd say within half an inch at the worst.
Gheist says on 20/Dec/13
Possibly rounds 174cm on a good day.
sed says on 18/Dec/13
he seems really short. I think 5'6.5 or max 5'7

SAK says on 23/Apr/13
When you stand next to someone you cant see the height difference accurately unless you see it in a reflection.

Absolutely. We can never really judge accurately someone elses' height just by looking at them because our eyes are placed a few inches below the top of our heads. It's best if you can stand together in front of a mirror or have your pictures taken together.
Hola says on 12/Dec/13
Honestly doubt he'd claim 3 inches taller than his barefoot height. 5'8 ballpark is probably right for him.

Does wear lifts though.
no says on 12/Dec/13
im 100 % positive that he's wearing lifts in that pic
Sean says on 30/Nov/13
5'8" seems about right. With 5'11" Seth Rogen and 5'10.5" Danny McBride:

If you look at pictures where he walks barefoot, you will see that he cant be taller than 5'7. He looks too short to be 5'9-5'10. says on 31/Oct/13
he is barely taller than dave franco, which is good proof that he could be shorter.i would go with 5'7..
Silent d says on 21/Oct/13
Solid 5 foot 8.
truth says on 20/Oct/13
Yeah just as I though he is 5ft7 at best. Where is Bandet? Hey buddy, you lost an argument ;)
little sue says on 18/Oct/13
Hei is a gorgeous looking boy!! Personally I'd prefer a 5ft 8 man over a 6ft 2 man anyday!. I would say the only women put off by his height would be women over 5ft 8 but if they was confronted with his looks, style and money they would'nt let that put them off!!
thebad7 says on 14/Oct/13
Just saw him in last year's THE LUCKY ONE. I posted this awhile back, and it was reaffirmed watching this film: he's a strong 5'7" and no more. His co-star, the gorgeous Taylor Schilling (phenomenal actress; check her out in Netflix's ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK) has almost an inch on him even when he has a footwear advantage, and she's in flats for the bulk of the film. Per Rob's posted photo, the evidence is clear: when Taylor's in 3" spikes, she's about 5'11. In Italian dress shoes, Zac is 5'9" at best, with a 1" - 1.5" squared heel. I don't know why he's insecure about his height--he's a good looking, talented actor, and now with his HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL days behind him, he's doing quality work in meaningful projects.

Rory says on 9/Oct/13
Rob do you think efron could be one of the few hollywood stars who don't wear lifts and stuff like that ?
[Editor Rob: he has a great posture, I don't know if he would wear lifts, his shoes don't seem to bulge or anything...but there might be a few out there who just put half inch lifts and it makes it very hard for anybody to spot them.]
Bradi says on 9/Oct/13

5'10''? lol
joewhite31 says on 6/Oct/13
For as long as he got a well-proportioned body, I would say this man looks fine with his stature. He can appear anywhere from 5'8"-5'10". That picture with Jonah Hill shows that Zac is not under 5'8".
Larc 74in says on 20/Sep/13
2011 - I'm only 5'11
2012 - I'm only 6'0
2013 - I'm only 6'1
Seriously, the arrogance of these famous guys is limitless.
Akizme says on 18/Sep/13
Ok, so in the movie '17 again' there is a scene where Zach Efron is dancing with Leslie Mann. Leslie Mann is listed as 5'7 and in the scene she is wearing 3-inch heels and she is the same height as Zac who is wearing what looks like Adidas sneakers. So basically, with heels on Leslie Mann is 5'10. Zac's sneakers probably add one inch to his height, so I would say he is 5'9 tops.
Emily says on 7/Sep/13
@mary That name suits you very well.
FM says on 3/Sep/13
He barely looks an inch taller than Jonah Hill (who you have listed at 5'6.25")- and the footware advantage probably went to Efron. It's possible he's 5'8", but I'd guess closer to 5'7".

Zac used to be quite short but the last couple of years he got taller.Now he must a litlle shorter than 5.11 which is the average height for men.He was never tall though.

how do u tell the guy wears lifts?
i mean, he probably does..but i saw some pics of him in normal shoes..and his lifts dont give him the stallone effect, so to speak..not uber-long lower legs etc
i think his lifts are not that obvious
Sizzler says on 16/Jul/13
his lifts are so obvious, mor ethan in brad pitts case.It just doesnt look right.
Morning height 5'7 1/2.And if its not that id rather think he is 5'7 than 5'8.Looks average with 3 inch heels on,he is below avg clearly.And pretty frail ..
Bradi says on 10/Jul/13
Definitely, he used to wear converse and low top shoes between 2007-2010, now he goes out in boots.
superman says on 20/Jun/13
thanks rob and im not saying 5'7 but 5'7.75 inches ive met him i just dont see him over 5'8 or at 5'8, im just syaing he isnt a full 5'8 so you dont think he could be a tad under 5'8? i do understand why you put him at 5'8 good shout and good estimate.
superman says on 19/Jun/13
hey rob do you think zac could be ubder 5'8 theres alot of people on the site who say 5'7 max, but do you think he could be donwgrade to tom cruise height 5.7.5 or 5'7.75. thanks.
[Editor Rob: I can't see him looking shorter than about 5ft 8, 5ft 7 I would struggle to argue that.]

Tony says on 17/Jun/13
I used to work on the set of High School Musical, I'm 5'8 and he had 2 inches on me. Definitely a lift wearer IMO he is 5'7.5. He's got more lifts than a building!
satchy says on 17/Jun/13
maybe lauten parrish was wearing heals or smth, however they weren't standing straight next to each other, were they. zac max is 5ft 7 max
superman says on 15/Jun/13
I have kust seen there pictures together on youtube and hubter parish has good inch on him and yes tyler parish is listed at 5'7 or 170cm. i would zac would be atleast close to 5'8 but maybe he is closer to 5'7? thanks
Ian says on 13/Jun/13
Okay, I've got proof of his height here. Totally legit too, in the movie 17 again--he's fairly short compared to Hunter Parrish, Parrish claims he's 170cm yet he towers over Efron, who claims to be taller.
superman says on 9/Jun/13
It is really hard to question you because you have extensive experience on the subject, but everyone who has met him including myself say he is under 5'8, i believe in regular shoes he is 5'8 like vans. so that would make him in tom cruise area. It would be intresting for you to get a oicture with him, and to see what footwear he had on. thanks

the picture with zac on the beach barefoot with vannesa hudgens he only looks 5'6 or 5'6.5 so i said before and i was being generous that he is 171cm but i think he is closer to 170cm. he wears 2 to 3 inch healed shoes with 1 to 2 inch lifts which makes him seem anywhere from 170cm to 178cm but alot of celebs do this. the best i can estimate a solid 5'7 or to be fare 5'7.5 like tom cruise. its hard to tell these peoples actuall height since in acting and in sports everyone adds 2 to 4 inches to there height. i will even say in a good pair of shoes solid 5'8 guy athis best! best pictures on page to judge are the joe jonas and zac pic and the beach pic. also in the laker photo with ryan rottman who is 5'8 looks 1.5 to 2 inches taller than zac and nina norbrev is 5 foot 5 and zac looks 1 inch taller than her they all have similiar foot wear good pic to judge height. im just putting this out there cause ive met him numerous times and want to put the truth out there but like lisa sai who cares if you 5'6 5'7 5'8 or 5'9 it all about how you carry yourself, and if your kind, confident and take care of yourself who cares. from my point of view he has no problem being his height.

She walks out with Zac Efron at 5:25. Here she is CLEARLY shorter than Zac Efron. I think he may have had a footwear advantage, but this shows me she's not 5'11. Heck her and Ellen are the same height on here
superman says on 17/May/13
I live in santa maria CA 10 minutes from where zac was born my father works with his father in san luis Obispo diablo canyon PG and E power plant. I have met zac in person he is 5 foot 7. his v-shaped body and being thin make him look taller, to be fair he is 171m tall, no taller. he is the nicesdt guy in the world though andtons of women love him so who cares what his height is.
Jacob says on 16/May/13
Saw him on the set of the film "Townies" the other day with Dave Franco, who's 5'7-ish, Zac's easily 5'9 stood next to him, and I'm 5'11. Also, he doesn't exactly have a sticks posture, his ever so slightly hunchback when his relaxed, but when he's standing up and tall, maybe 5'9 And a half?
Bradi says on 15/May/13
170cm tops theres so much evidence 5'8'' or above is bluff
Chameleon says on 13/May/13
No way he is over 170cm come on..

He always says 'only' when saying a I am x height, y height.

173cm throught the day. 172cm in evening.
April says on 6/May/13
I have met him in real life! He is soo attractive, but very short indeed. He is no more than 5'6-5'7, same height as my friend. I also thought he was taller, so I was kinda disappointed..but he is still very handsome!
Hmm says on 5/May/13
5'9 to 5'9 1/2 he is taller then taylor schilling in the lucky one that kinda reminded me with people that are 5'8 and I've been between 5'9 and 5'10 since my sophomore year and I know I'm not 5'8
ano says on 29/Apr/13
This guy is an obvious 5'7; with nearly an always getting a 2 inch footwear boost.

Just face it, a lot of celb height are wrong: making our comparisions harder. However, I very much doubt that this guy is over 5'7.5 at best.

suzjac40 says: I am 5"11 and stood right next to him-he is 5"6 or 5"7 TOPS and I think maybe had some kind of lifts in his shoes.
So you are saying he is 5f7 with shoes and lifts in it. So your really saying hes 5f5 barefoot.

When you stand next to someone you cant see the height difference accurately unless you see it in a reflection.

He is 5f8.

they almost look the same height on the picture posted by Brad, even their body types are quite similar to one another
Bradi says on 9/Apr/13
heather your picture is flawed. Look at the left leg of both Dave and Zac.

Dave has his leg bent, Zac does not.

The picture I posted is better, but as you say we can't know for sure since walking pics are pretty bad for gauging height.
Stacy says on 9/Apr/13
After seeing him with Dave Franco who is listed as (167cm) I'm pretty sure Zac cant be taller than 170cm. And Zac is indeed standing on the higher ground.
satchy says on 8/Apr/13
sure he is because he is standing on the higher ground
heather says on 8/Apr/13
It's hard to compare their heights based on just one picture. Zac looks noticeably taller than Dave in this picture: Click Here

You can't pick just one picture where they look similar in height to claim they are the same height. The height difference changes depending on pictures especially when the subjects are photographed while they are moving.

Dave Franco's shoes add about an inch to him I think. 5'8 seems right for Zac. He was the same height with 5'8 Taylor Schilling during the sex scene in The Lucky One. They were both standing barefoot on the floor.

Keltoi says on 8/Mar/13
@1234: Well, I'm a 5'8" guy and also have a similar build to Efron, so I feel somewhat qualified to judge. He looks a legit 5'8" from what I've seen and his proportions are very similar to mine as well. That pic is terrible for judging height by the way, he's on his own and there's nothing notable to compare near him, so I fail to understand why 5'7" is just popping out at you from that alone.

He could be a fraction under or over either way, but he definitely looks around the 5'8" mark for me.
