Ben Stiller Height

"I'm always willing to endure humiliation on behalf of my characters."

~ Ben Stiller

Ben stiller might just be the best actor to ever walk on the surface of the earth. Just saying, you know, it is an idea -- a nice idea, because Mr. Stiller has given us stellar performances in movies such as Tropic Thunder, There is Something About Mary, Zoolander, Night at the Museum, and many more such jewels.

About Ben Stiller's Real Height

Ben Stiller might not be that tall in real life but he is very big on the screen. IMDb lists Mr. Stiller at a respectable 5' 7¾" -- which is nearly 5'8". Is Ben really this tall -- we have our doubts, after comparing him with some other people. Where did this number come from anyway? 

Ben could have certainly passed as a 5'8" tall guy -- especially in his younger days -- not anymore though because now his posture is not the best anymore. Now Ben looks about two inches shorter than a 5'8" guy like Tom Cruise. Actually, Mr. Stiller now looks very similar in height to 5'6" people like Jack Black and Jonah Hill -- rather than 5'8" people like Tom Cruise and Robert Downey Jr. We suppose Mr. Stiller was certainly a bit taller in his youth though.

The real height of Ben Stiller is

5'6" or 168 cm

Height in his prime was 5'7"
