Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Cruise are 5 feet 7 inches tall while people like Kevin Hart (5 feet 2 inches) and Danny Devito (5 feet) are right at the bottom of our list.
Nevertheless, the point has been made, Hollywood is full of short leading men, Clooney on the other hand is neither here or there. The actor stands tall-ish at 5 feet 11 inches. This well above the average American male height of 5 feet 10 inches, so you get the gist of how tall he is.

George Clooney’s Weight
People add weight, it’s a part of life, you grow older and your metabolism begins to have more off days. In Hollywood, it’s almost always the opposite case, the older they get the more they strive to give us mere mortals some pretty unattainable goals.
Thank heavens for Clooney, he actually let himself go a bit especially after his September 2014 wedding, the words ‘soft and squishy physique’ were used to describe the actor. There were speculations that his bride was not too impressed with the extra pounds he packed on and even put him on a diet. The actor currently weighs 78 kg.
