Brad Pitt Height - How Tall is He Really?

"You must lose everything in order to gain anything."

~ Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt is a great actor, no doubt about it. But he is much more than that -- he is if anything one of the last superstars of Hollywood and a cultural icon as well. In his prime, he was considered to be the sexiest man alive. What is more - it seems that he has aged like a fine wine.

About Brad Pitt's Real Height

Where height is concerned Brad Pitt was never considered to be a tall man but never short as well -- as someone like Tom Cruise was thought as. People thought of Brad's height if anything --  slightly above the average height of men - which is more or less the case in reality.

Many websites on the internet list him at 5'11". The origins of this number are unclear -- perhaps he had claimed to be 5'11" tall sometime in the past.

Whatever the reason for that listing, after looking at him and comparing him to Tom Cruise (almost 5'8"), Leonardo DiCaprio (5'11½"), Geroge Clooney (5'10"), Angelina Jolie (5'7"), and many others such celebrities, we think that his web listing suits him perfectly.

He is slightly above the average height of males of the United States after all -- which is 5'9" and slightly taller than someone like Matt Damon (5'10") and only a bit shorter than Leonardo DiCaprio (5'11"). In short, he has a good height for a leading actor.

The real height of Brad Pitt is
