Did you ever wonder how tall Robert Downey Jr. is? If yes, then this blog will satiate your curiosity, as you’ll get to know about Robert Downey Jr.’s height and will also notice some instances where his height will be compared with other celebrities.
Actor, producer, singer, and Academy Award nominee, Robert Downey Jr., is one of the living legends of Hollywood. With his phenomenal acting skills and charismatic on-screen appearance, RDJ never fails to allure the audience. He is best known for playing the character of Tony Stark in the Iron Man and The Avengers film series. He’s further recognised for playing the main protagonist in Sherlock Holmes, for which he was awarded a Golden Globe, and its sequel.
Robert Downey Jr. has an impeccable fashion sense. He carries himself well, whether he’s in a business suit or a casual attire. He’s also known for his love for elevator shoes and can be often seen flaunting a pair in public. Unless you know him personally, it is difficult to guess RDJ’s real height. Most sources have claimed that he’s 5’8 (173cm), which may be his actual height. And when he has put on his shoe lifts, he stands closer to 6’ or 183cm. Let’s take a look at some instances where RDJ might be wearing height-increasing shoes.
In the above photo, Robert Downey Jr. can be seen standing next to Jude Law, his co-star from the Sherlock Holmes film series. Jude Law is nearly 6’ (183cm) tall. However, Robert Downey Jr., who is 5’8 (173cm), looks as tall as Jude Law in the above photo. Hence, RDJ might have put on a pair of height-increasing shoes that have added a few more inches to his original height.
Here’s a photo of Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow, his co-star from the Iron Man and The Avengers film series.
Gwyneth Paltrow is 5’9 (175cm), whereas Robert Downey Jr. is 5’8 (173cm). But, in the above photo, he appears as tall as Gwyneth Paltrow, even when she’s wearing high heels that have added almost 3 inches to her actual height. Hence, this is one of those frequent instances where RDJ has put on his red carpet gear – a pair of elevator shoes.
In The Avengers franchise, Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo are the shortest male actors in the lead roles. Chris Evans, who played the role of Captain America, stands at 6’ (183cm), whereas Chris Hemsworth, who played the role of Thor, is 6’3 (191cm) tall.
Let’s observe one of the scenes from the movie, Avengers: Endgame, where Robert Downey Jr. is standing with Chris Evans.
In this scene, Robert Downey Jr. (5’8 or 173cm) is able to pose himself as tall as Chris Evans (6’ or 183cm) with the help of height-increasing shoes. He also appears taller than Mark Ruffalo (Hulk) who shares a similar height with him, since Ruffalo does not wear elevator shoes.
In this photo, Robert Downey Jr. (5’8 or 173cm) is standing with Chris Hemsworth, who is 6’3 (191cm) tall. But, it doesn’t seem that the height difference between these two gentlemen here is 7 inches. RDJ’s shoes look like they may have some elevation, which is why he appears taller in this photo. Robert steps up his style game in black shoes that share a striking resemblance to JENNEN Shoes' Mr. Zizek.
In this photo, Robert Downey Jr. is standing next to his wife, Susan Downey. Susan is 5’3 (160cm) and is wearing high heels. However, she still appears quite shorter than RDJ, even though her heels might have given her an elevation of approximately 3 inches. Also, RDJ is not standing straight, yet he appears 4-5 inches taller than his wife. It is also possible to look at the couple’s footwear, which tightens the fact that RDJ is wearing elevator shoes.
Robert Downey Jr. is on top of his game today, and most of us aspire to have a life like him. However, he hasn’t lived in glamour throughout his life. He struggled in his personal life and was also sent to jail for some of his actions. But overcoming every struggle, RDJ made a phenomenal comeback in his career. His life’s story is full of chills and thrills, just like the plots of his movies, and provides great lessons on dealing with situations.
