Leonardo DiCaprio Height - Just How Tall is He Really?

"I figure life's a gift and I don't intend on wasting it. You don't know what hand your gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you... to make each day count." 

~ Leonardo DiCaprio

They say that Tom Cruise is the last megastar of Hollywood but many people will disagree. They will say that Leonardo DiCaprio is just as good a candidate for being the last global megastar as Tom Cruise. People know and love Leo all over the world after all.

He first burst into the spotlight after James Cameron's Titanic and hasn't looked back ever since. He had enjoyed the kind of superstardom that would make people wish that they were never famous. But Leo is a different kind of man. He is, what can only be described as a "pro" - at many things at that - enjoying the many pleasures that life has to offer is one of his areas of expertise.

Though when it comes to his real profession - acting - he could not be more serious. He takes his career very seriously and makes no compromise over it ever...

About Leonardo DiCaprio's Real Height

It is a generally accepted fact that Leonardo DiCaprio is around six feet tall. The myriad of websites on the internet lists him at that rather mythical number - 6". But is he really that tall? Some people have doubts. You see Mr. DiCaprio seems to have a good height but sometimes he can appear... how do we say? A bit shorter? Yes, a bit shorter than the six feet mark.

We know for a fact that Brad Pitt is 5'11" and Leo often looks a bit taller than him. A six feet tall Tom Hanks looked slightly taller than Leo in Catch Me if You Can movie. Then there are big, strappy guys like Elon Musk and Barack Obama - both guys stand tall and proud at 6'1.5" and managed to make Leo look closer to 5'11" than any other number. These height comparisons and some others have made us think that Leonardo DiCaprio is indeed somewhere between 5'11" and 6" in height.

The real height of Leonardo DiCaprio is

5'11.5" or 181.5 cm
