Ansel Elgort’s Height Compared with Other Actors

It’s not exactly news that Hollywood selects only the best of the crop when it comes to the big screen, and that part of the criteria assessed is the actor’s looks, which includes their height. Here we’ll consider how tall Ansel Elgort’s fellow screen folk are when compared to him.

How Tall is Ansel Elgort Compared to Mike Faist?

Mike Faist and Ansel play screen buddies in the movie ‘West Side Story’. Both of them had to even do rehearsals together, so they could form a bond to facilitate their characters—both played best friends Tony and Ruff in the 2021 movie.

In the course of rehearsals, comparisons of their heights popped up a couple of times. Well, Mike Faist is also pretty tall and stands 6 feet 1 inch tall. This is just two inches shorter than his colleague Elgort.

Ansel Elgort’s Height Compared With Miles Teller

Ansel and the Pennsylvania native have crossed paths too many times for there not to be comparisons between the two. The two men have a combined filmography of 6 movies, having featured together in ‘Divergent’, ‘Insurgent’, ‘Carrie’, ‘Whiplash’, ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, and ‘Men, Women & Children’ with the last three being released in 2014.

Miles Teller is exactly 6 feet tall (183 cm). The actor isn’t short by any means but doesn’t quite measure up to his co-star’s height of 6 feet 3 inches. The 3-inch difference between both men is a large one when it comes to such dicey comparisons as height.

Ansel and his ‘West Side Story’ love interest, Rachel Zegler have an astonishing height gap. While Rachel Zegler is 5 feet 2 inches tall, Ansel Elgort stands tall and proud at 6 feet 3 inches tall. That means both actors have a height difference of about 13 inches. Pictures of both make this difference glaring, as Zegler hardly measures up to the actor’s shoulder level, even with her heels on.

Zegler and Ansel played lovers in the movie adaptation of the Broadway musical, and have even sparked romance rumors in the real world. However, that is not the case as both of them are just good friends in real life. Their massive height difference was cute, but it did not spark any type of romance between the two.

How Tall is Ansel Elgort Compared to Ryan Seacrest and Shailene Woodley?

Speaking of being extremely tall, Ansel Elgort completely dwarfed the television personality and host Ryan Seacrest when he was being interviewed on the Oscars red carpet in 2015. Ryan’s 5 feet 7 inches frame stood no chance against the behemoth that was Ansel Elgort. Both men aren’t in the same industry, however, this didn’t stop the height comparisons from happening.

In the same vein, he is also much taller than his divergent co-star, Shailene Woodley who played the lead character as well as the sister of Ansel’s movie persona, Tris Prior. Shailene is 5 feet 7½ inches tall and stands almost 8 inches below her co-actor.

Ansel’s full body measurements are estimated at 38 inches (chest size), 32 inches (waist size: ), and 13 inches (arms/biceps). With a healthy BMI of 23.5, Ansel Elgort is definitely on the right side of the scale.

For his role in ‘Divergent’ and ‘Insurgent’, he had to do plenty of cardio exercises as they required a lot of physical activity, including running.
