About Gary Oldman's Height

Gary Oldman is not too tall, nor is he too short. Though he certainly isn't his claimed 5'10" as well. Perhaps, he was close to 5'10" in his prime but that's clearly not the case anymore.

After looking at him carefully and comparing him to a number of other actors, we think that Mr. Oldman looks like a flat 5'8" now like Robert Downey Jr. but was around 5'9" in his prime - as tall as someone like Johnny Depp.
