Here is an actor who has made a smooth transition from child star status to “adult television”, and he too has done an amazing job. Today it’s all about the height, weight, and body measurements of Ryan Gosling, but you know we can’t start with that without checking some cool facts about the actor himself.
He was born on November 12, 1980, as Ryan Thomas Gosling in London, Ontario, Canada. For those of you who hate Canada but love Ryan Gosling… You’re in love with a Canadian.
We’ve heard some pretty unique nicknames in our time, but guess what Gosling was called by his whole family as a kid… Troublemaker. Hint, hint, someone was a handful.
He was raised a Mormon, and his family was pretty devout. Gosling told the Guardian this: “We were quite religious, it was part of everything – what we ate, as we thought.
His path to becoming a child star began in 1993 when he auditioned for the cast of “The All-New Mickey Mouse Club” – and lo and behold, he beat out 17,000 of his colleagues to get the role.
His roommate during the show was Justin Timberlake, and at some point, Justin’s mother was his legal guardian.
Ryan takes sole responsibility for teaching Britney Spears all bad and sexual things.
We all know that the kind of love he had for Rachel McAdams in The Notebook was something we wanted and even desired; there is a very specific reason why he was cast for that role. The director thought he was neither cool nor handsome.
Here’s a strange reason: Ryan loves knitting and he’s pretty good at it. The actor also loves to build things, he built the car he used in “Drive” and the table he and Rachel McAdams freaked out on in “The Notebook”, he also built the Adirondack chairs in front of the house. What a resourceful guy.
To this day his favorite place is Disneyland, he often puts on a hat (disguise of the century) and goes on all the rides.
Well, this turned out to be more interesting than we thought, but it’s time to move on to the subject at hand, starting with the height of Ryan Gosling.
Ryan Gosling’s Height
Hollywood is full of male lead actors who are rather small or medium in stature, but now and then the big men appear. Before we announce the height of Ryan Gosling, here is a list of some of the stars who have broken out of the “little main actor” form.
We have people like Tyler Perry who is 5’5″ tall, Jeff Goldblum is 5’5″, Vince Vaughn is 5’5″ and Jason Segel is 5’5″. Ryan Gosling is not as tall as any of these men, but Ryan Gosling’s Height still puts him on the list. The actor is 5’8″.
Some people think that the actor looks a little shorter than 6’0, but that’s his indicated height. Here’s a shortlist of stars as tall as Ryan. Leonardo DiCaprio, Eva Herzigová, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Benedict Cumberbatch are all the same height as Ryan Gosling.

Ryan Gosling’s Weight
Just by looking at him, we can see that Ryan knows the way to one or two gyms, the actor weighs 78 kg and he rocks his size quite well. In 2009 the actor mistakenly gained a few extra kilos, and here is the story behind it. He was signed up for the lead role in the movie The Lovely Bones, and in Ryan’s interpretation of the character, he thought he should weigh 95 kg.
So he began his journey to 95 kg by melting Haagen-Dazs ice cream and drinking it whenever he was thirsty. However, the director had a different idea of how his character should look, which is why Gosling remained “fat and unemployed”. His words, not ours.
