Q: Why Celebheights?
A: CelebHeights tries to document what celebrities claim to be but also offers our own guess on their stature, providing a forum for visitors to weigh in with their own opinions. It's an entertainment site, and one that has allowed me to travel to many conventions, meet actors and get photos which I post and share with you, the visitors of this site.
This is the only height-related site that meets actors, posts these height comparison photos and spends considerable time researching what they have said about their own height. As the Editor, I believe I have a good sense of how tall people in general look. For instance, I ran a Height challenge in 2011
with numerous people of different heights (including many not to have appeared in the challenge) and so know how tall a real 6ft 5 man looks or a 5ft lady. This hopefully helps improve guessing celebrity heights in person, and in fact even other big sites like IMDB use Celebheights as a reference
to correct their own entries. Although to be fair, They got my Height right ;)
Q: Why can I not comment?
A: If the comment is gibberish, insulting or nothing to do with height it might not be approved - I moderate most comments to reduce spam and help your experience. Please use one name for commenting, respect other commentators, their opinions and the celebrities themselves. Always worth remembering a guess is just that, and doesn't change the actual height of the famous person.
Q: How can I search for a star?
A: There is a search option at the top right hand corner of every page - it uses Google, is fast and as the 'A-Z' pages have gotten larger over the years, you're best bet is to use the search function to find any celebrity you are interested in. You can also use it to plug in movies/tv shows to find actors/actresses from certain shows of interest.
Q: How can I help CelebHeights?
A: If you enjoy the site, keep an eye out for any celebrity who mentions their height and post a comment on their respective pages letting us know. Help spread the word about CelebHeights by sharing, linking or mentioning the site on your social media, blogs and recommend us to others. And keep visiting :) Without visitors, the site wouldn't exist, so thanks and I hope you manage to get a little enjoyment from visiting the site.
You can find videos about height, both informational and amusing on my Youtube Channel
Q: Can I advertise on CelebHeights?
A: CelebHeights has been active since October 2004. If you are interested in advertising please do so through Google's Adsense program. The only direct advertiser I use is Dons Footwear. Celebheights has used Servint Hosting
for over 6 years and I've found them to be a quite reliable service.
Q: How do you find heights?
A: I try to find quotes from stars about their height. At the moment there are probably 4000+ entries on the site with an actual quote said by the celebrity (or from their agency resume) attributed to them, a large majority of which I have researched myself, with helpful contributions from visitors. That doesn't mean I agree with all of them of course ;-)
Q: Where are good places to look at pictures?
A: Fan sites are great for checking a particular star as usually they will have
gallery full of them. GettyImages, WireImage.com, Alamy.com, Corbis.com, Flickr.com
are some good sites aswell.
Q: Are the heights listed with shoes?
A: No. Assume every height as though the celebrity was measured barefoot. This isn't the NBA! I make no claim as to whether any listed height is an evening or early morning one, but technically I think you are better off saying your height based on the time when people get measured on average, which obviously wouldn't be out of bed, but might be about 5 hours after waking. After you've been standing for 5-6 hours you won't shrink much more during the rest of the day compared to how much you shrink in the time period from waking up till lunchtime.
Q: How accurate are the heights?
A: Celebheights tries to build an accurate database, but you cannot rely on using official resumes or actors own declarations of their height, because invariably a good percentage might embellish the truth, give their height in shoes, round up or not even know or care. Height in many cases is a best estimate. Even if you meet a star, your own estimate might be off, especially if you don't get within a couple of feet and the difference in your heights is large or you're judging on the street where pavement differences can cause confusion.
Anybody judging height on streets will find it much harder because most side-walks/pavements are built with varying degrees of fall (sloping) away from the building. You could stand shoulder to shoulder on what looks 'level ground' but one person's feet are 2 inches lower than the other person's. That's one reason why I don't get street photos - they are largely a waste of time for height and I'd rather not pester celebrities in situations were they don't really want to be pestered. I only meet them on occasions were they have chosen to meet fans like Signing/Convention events.
Contrary to those who believe otherwise, the site has no bias - the purpose of CelebHeights is to try to guess what I think each celebrity would measure. It's as simple as that. Liking or disliking any celebrity has absolutely no bearing on what they get listed at. I may, for instance, not be a fan of say Tom Cruise, but I'll list him the height I think he is.
Q: What about the sightings on the site. Are they reliable?
A: A proportion of the sightings submitted by visitors to the site were, to say the least, to be taken with a large pinch of salt. Unfortunately anybody could say they've met a star...the internet is filled with untruths which is one reason I moderate comments and won't stand for nonsense. One thing I certainly don't do is BS people. All the quotes I've found made by stars about their heights are real, the 100+ heights I've managed to get directly from celebrities via email or in person are real (for instance when Lenny Henry said, "I'm 6'3". Hugh Laurie is teeny tiny -sleeps in matchbox" he really did say this!), and the encounters and resulting 900+ photos I've shown over the years should speak for themselves.
I currently only show photos of myself or Jenny and a handful of friends. If you have photos with celebs you are more than welcome to link to them in the comment section, but I no longer host or promote other photos in the description section of listings.
Q: Who operates this site?
A: It is owned and operated by one person since 2004 - me (Rob Paul), the Editor, who currently lives in Scotland. I only post and talk about height on Celebheights, Youtube or occasionally even on Imdb.com.
Anybody claiming or posting under my name on other sites will be an imposter. Celebheights has been mentioned in numerous forms of media, including Online Media (like Buzzfeed
, radio, TV (such as Conan O'Brien
, newspapers (Sunday Mail
, New York Post
), and magazines (like Esquire
To contact me about important matters, email me (RobPaul AT Gmail.Com).
Q: How tall is Rob?
A: The lowest I ever measure under normal circumstances with flat floor/wall is a hair over 5ft 8. Out of bed I typically measure in the 5ft 8.75 range. In any photo I have with a celebrity I am roughly 173cm on the nose (5ft 8 1/8th). I have worn a variety of footwear in photos, but I will always mention as best I can, any difference there is between my footwear and a celebrities. As of 2016 I currently weigh around 165 pounds.
Q: Who was/what happened to Glenn?
A: Glenn Cunningham (aka BIG G from The Bronx, New York) was a former photo contributor from 2005-2009 who was banned for numerous reasons. On a trip to New York I decided to document his true height, which you can read about in the true story: The Big Grapple
, which was also covered in an article on Buzzfeed
. He still claims to be 5ft 8 (although has now changed his tune to saying that is out of bed), although he was measured 5ft 6 and 5/8ths, witnessed by Jenny. The chances of him shrinking nearly 1.5 inches from morning to night are slim.

Federico Fellini (1920-1993), the Italian movie director, was 1.82 m, according to "Fellini: the authorized biography" by John Baxter (1993).
[Editor Rob: I know he's been asked for a few times and the 182 seems quite possible, I will add him now!]

Hey Rob. My friend is claiming to be 6'1. I personally reckon he is. He said he is measured properly at 183.5cm at his lowest (in the afternoon). How tall do you reckon this would mean he is in the morning? Would this warrant being called 6'1?
[Editor Rob: he might be a good 6ft 1-1.25 out of bed.]

Hi Rob, as far as I know the average height of dutch women is 5ft7 . With that I'd like to know your opinion if 5ft10-5ft11 is considered tall for a Dutch woman? Thanks
[Editor Rob: yes it will be definitely in the tall range, even 5ft 9 is still a good couple of inches above average.]
said on 30/May/16
Rob, would you agree if I say that human´s height is 95% determined by his genetics, because I´ve seen a guy same old as me (17) and he smokes, drinks alcohol, parties on weekends. I haven´t seen his parents, but as he is about 190 cm tall, I expect they are over average too. Also I know other guy who is 17 as well, his parents are little under average and he is noticeably shorter than other boys in his class. But he is living very healthy, living in countryside, eating healthy, dealing with sports and no smoking, drinking alcohol. What do you think about that?
[Editor Rob: genetics will play the biggest role, but of course lifestyle, diet, exercise, illness might hinder or be a positive factor in achieving the tallest height possible.]

I played football for about 3 hours and when I came home I measured 1mm under 5 foot 7 and three quarters. Does runnning around effect height?
[Editor Rob: yes, any type of activity that involves running, twisting for prolonged time will effect the discs and get you to your low quicker...or as mentioned elsewhere on the site, possibly knock you down to an absolute low height, in some cases being 1/4 or 1/3rd less than your average low.
But we are talking guys like tennis players or footballers playing 3 hour matches.]

Rob, can I consider myself as a strong 6 feet guy since my morning height is 184,9 and my absolute lowest is when I have been 17 hours awake, have carried 17 lbs schoolbag most of the day and measure between 182,8 and 182,9? Also when I measure my height after 6 hours of being awake, it´s 184,0 and when I´m not carrying any bags, after 10 hours it´s about 183,3
[Editor Rob: you seem like an honest 6 footer, I would claim that if I were you, or with metric, just say 183cm...
this might upset a few people who lie, because you being honest effects their lie...imagine you see a guy who is 182 and he says he's 185cm...then you say I'm 183...this upsets his apple-cart!]

Hey Rob, how do you manage to take photos with majority of celebs in the same background (the blueish thing behind). Is it like a standard thing for taking photos in conventions? Or do you photoshop it yourself to make a pic clearer. Thanks !
[Editor Rob: a lot of the photos are from collectormania/film cons in the UK which use the same type of blue-tone backdrop.]
said on 29/Apr/16
Hey rob I have a question. When one gets older and shrinks will they still be taller out of bed or be the same height throughout the day.
[Editor Rob: the difference between out of bed and evening will reduce as you get older...because the discs degenerate and aren't able to hold as much fluid as in your youth. But we are talking a fraction really, in some cases you might go from losing 3/4 inch to losing 1/2 inch at age 60.]

Hey Rob, how long does it take on average for you to respond to a question?
said on 22/Apr/16
I think if I REALLY straighten out, I can measure somewhere in the 166-167 range, but the thing is I have such poor posture, that it's hard for me to stand at my full height if I'm completely still. It's as if I have to "propel" myself into my full height as I'm walking down that street. Does that make sense? Is that a common problem for people who have posture issues? The 1m55 and a bit eye level is what I get when I don't have space to "propel" myself.
[Editor Rob: yes, but I would spend some time trying to do basic exercises, simple stretching and consciously correcting yourself if you find bad habits of posture returning.]
said on 22/Apr/16
Hi Rob: I've always assumed I'm 5'5 or maybe 5'5 and a bit. My eye level at night time can sometimes be right at 1m56, and other times it struggles with that mark being more reliably at around 1m55.8 or something of that nature, so is it unlikely that I'd stand anything under 5'5, given that my facial structure doesn't seem particularly odd? Thanks for the input.
[Editor Rob: if eyelevel is near 156cm then likely you are a comfortable 5ft 5]

if one person was 4 inches taller than the other, where would the top of the shorter person's head end on the taller person? I am guessing somewhere around the eyebrows.
[Editor Rob: yes typically somewhere around eyebrows...possibly the hair would look above the eyebrows (if the person had like half inch of hair)]
said on 12/Apr/16
Hi Rob is 5ft9-5ft10 outrageously tall for a woman in a country/place where the average female height is 5ft?
[Editor Rob: it is certainly extremely tall...it's like a 6ft 1ish women in America for instance.]
said on 10/Apr/16
Hey Rob, so my father is currently about 176-177cm, maybe even 178 out of bed. I am currently 177cm and 178 just out of bed aswell. My father claims 180 to have been his peak height? Do you think I can reach that? I'm 17.
[Editor Rob: at 17 it's a time in which many get their final bit of height, maybe 1-2cm...while others still gain further into and up to 21.]
said on 3/Apr/16
Hi Rob, big fan! I am 193cm in the morning, and 192 at bedtime. I am also an avid runner/lifter and the lowest I hit on a heavy work-out day is 191. How would you classify me?
[Editor Rob: I think saying 192cm is perfectly reasonable. Considering many people lie or give a shoe height, I think you'd find nearly everybody would believe you were the height you claimed or even taller (obviously because they themselves need you taller to maintain their little white lie!)]
said on 30/Mar/16
Can you explain me why many actors, especially men who claim they are f.e. 193 cm and celebheights has listed them 189 cm? Is it because morning/afternoon height or actors just want to look bigger by claiming wrong height?
[Editor Rob: a proportion of actors lie, but many won't. Another chunk might be calling a height in shoes.
If possible I try to always give whatever the actor claims, then people are free to believe that or maybe consider whether my estimate might be nearer.
It's still a guess though.]

Hey Rob, would you consider 5ft 10 to be average or tallish? I'm from Toronto and we have people from all around the world in the city and I notice that I am generally a couple of inches taller than most of the immigrants. Even compared to local White Canadians, I still feel I am of slightly above-average height. I wanted your opinion as I've read that 5ft 10 is "just" average but I feel that if anything, it is more on the tall side (though not significantly so).
[Editor Rob: 5ft 9-10 is pretty average, but you might find a very big percentage of 5ft 7-9 range men in your city and it just feels like the average could be like 5ft 8-9...]
said on 17/Mar/16
Hey Rob I'm 17y and 6 months old. I'm prettymuch the same height as you. My mother is 168cm and my father is 176cm. I wanna know if i can grow a few extra centimeters? Also my father was around 173-174 till his 19th birthday.
[Editor Rob: if you gained another inch, I'd say you should be pleased.]
said on 12/Mar/16
Hey rob. Where do you get the portable stadiometers. I have one that is wall mounted and I am starting to grow sick of it.
[Editor Rob: depends on your country, but just type in medical supplies and look at websites that supply medical equipment. From there you should find a portable one.]
said on 10/Mar/16
Do you think those height/weight scanning BMI machines you sometimes find in chemists/drugstores (what I normally use to measure my height as I am still growing) are accurate with height? Would like to know your opinion, Thank you.
[Editor Rob: I haven't used one for ages. They are useful for a rough idea, but maybe not absolutely as precise as if you held an object on top of your head, rather than relying on a beam.]

I'm 182 cm now and my reach is 187 cm. I've just turned 19. Also my feet grew a bit. Do you think this is a sign that I've still got a little bit of growing to do?
[Editor Rob: a proportion still get some height in 18-21 range, but it's a minority. Impossible to tell really unless you had an idea of parents height pattern and whether either of them gained around that age - but that can be hard to find out unless it was obvious to them and they remember gaining an inch at college.]

Hi rob, I am a male that is 13 years and 9 months and 173cm (5ft8) What height do you think I have a good chance of making it to? So how tall do you think I will be when I have finished growing? Thanks

Hi Rob, have you or Jenny ever nudged past the 5'9 mark?
[Editor Rob: never against the wall, but on stadiometer I got 5ft 9 and a mm or so, but then the stadiometer adds 1/8th.
Usually I get 5ft 8.7-8.8 range out of bed against the wall. Jenny still manages to get about 5ft 8.7 herself, but used to get much nearer 5ft 9 6-7 years ago.]

Rob why is that 5'9 1/2 and 5'9 3/4 are both in 177cm?

Rob is it true our height after 6 to 7 hours reaches to lowest? because my Height after waking up for about 6 hours is pretty much same as my mid night or late night height i dont shrink anymore.
Is it true?
[Editor Rob: 6-7 hours typically gets you to within a couple of mm of your daily low...sometimes I can hit my low at 12-1pm and still be that height at 6pm or 9pm, other days it fluctuates, sometimes even going back up a 1-2mm after relaxing watching a movie.]

I'm a little over 176 cm and was wondering if that would be considered short in most Western countries? What is the current average height for Western men?

Hey rob I have a question. I have been measured 6'3/4" 3 places 2 of them from a stadiometer by a doctor one of them on the wall by myself. Another time I was measured 6'0.5" by a doctor and once 6'0.25". All of these are end of the day measurements and I am 6'1.75" out of bed. Am I really closer to 6'1" or a strong 6'0" what measurement do you think is my true height
[Editor Rob: the 6ft 0.25 seems a big change from your 6ft 0.5-0.75. Not impossible under some circumstances to lose a fraction more...maybe on a bad day with dehydration your discs compressed even more.
If you are getting 6ft 1.75 out of bed I'd go with 6ft 1 which you might be around lunch range.]

Only God knows why, this site is quite averse about listing the heights of historical people. Nevertheless, here goes the height of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), from article Click Here
Mrs. Charles W. Heaton (1874), "Leonardo da Vinci and his works", Kessinger Publishing, Whitefish, MT, 2004, p. 204: «The skeleton, which measured five feet eight inches, accords with the height of Leonardo da Vinci. The skull might have served for the model of the portrait Leonardo drew of himself in red chalk a few years before his death. M. Robert Fleury, head master of the Fine Art School at Rome, has handled the skull with respect, and recognized in it the grand and simple outline of this human yet divine head, which once held a world within its limits.» If a skeleton of a man dead aged 67 was 1.727 m long, very probably in his prime he was much taller than that, maybe between 1.75 to 1.80 m tall.

Why don't you change to the Metric System? It's much more scientific, accurate and linear. Imperial units definitely belong to the Middle Ages! Instead of saying Glenn is 5ft 6-5/8 in you could simply say he is 1.692 m tall (and not the 1.727 m he claims to be). So much more simple, accurate and intelligible to most of mankind... 1 cm difference in height is important. With the Imperial units you have to deal with... fractions!
[Editor Rob: unfortunately America (50% of visitors) still uses imperial, so I have to list both. In an ideal world, metric would be universal.]

I am typically measured at exactly 5'8, so this is an anomaly). If there is an email or anything where I can get in touch with you, let me know.

I'm 19 in 3 months and I'm 5'11 (180.5cm) and 183cm out of bed. Since my 18th birthday I've been growing 0.5cm every few months. I started puberty at 13 and I think I'm still going through puberty. My dad is 169cm and my mum is 165cm and my double-first cousin is 24 and 178cm. My other cousins have been known to grow past 19/20 years old. I have body and facial hair but I still look kind of young, the only reason some people think I'm older is because of my height. Are my growth plates still open? Do you think I could grow to 185cm?
[Editor Rob: it seems you have gained a bit around 19, how much more you could gain is hard to say but if your plates are still open (and it seems they are) I'd say just keep eating good meals and getting good rests...if you get more take it as a bonus.]

Rob, could you add a page for Neil Oliver, the Scottish Historian, who claims to be 5 foot 10 inches tall, please?
said on 15/Nov/15
Rob, what would you estimate to be your margin of error for a typical listing? Assuming it's someone relatively famous whom you've had a pretty good look at, how close are you usually confident in saying your listing is? Within 0.25 inches? 0.5? 0.75? Might make for an informative add-on to the top of listings -- just below the height, you could include a declaration of how close you think you must be. For example, "X is 5ft 10in. Likely margin of error: 0.5 inches"
[Editor Rob: sometimes the margin of error might be in the listing. Like 5ft 9.75 could mean I'm thinking they can look 5ft 9.5 or 10, so going with the middle.
I would say a good chunk I'd place within a 1/4 inch but a fair wack in that 'within 0.5 inch range'.]

Sorry, Rob, I didn't know this FAQ section existed, so I made a comment on Oscar De La Hoya's page. I'm really interested in David Lemieux's height. It's really tricky, so I think you should take a look.

Hi rob, i measured my height today in the morning right after bed (9 hours of sleep) and i was comfortably over 178cm (178.2cm). And, im always a hair over or under 176cm at late night. Can i claim "about 5'10" if someone asks my height, or i am cheating?
[Editor Rob: claim what you feel comfortable saying. I would personally go for the 'almost 5ft 10' wording as that covers the range you are in. If you wear really thin sneakers and say 'about 5ft 10' more people might think you are less than 5ft 10.]

Hi Rob. Just wondering where I could purchase one of those unique height measuring devices that I always see you using in your videos. How much do they cost and who sells them? It's the one that has the plastic thing at the bottom that shows two shoe prints as to where to put your feet. I would love to purchase one. Thanks!
[Editor Rob: look for medical supplier websites in your country.
For instance in the UK I got mine from This site
at a reasonable price.]

here's a test for you, rob. if a girl's mother is 5'8 and her father is 6'0, how tall would you expect that girl to grow, even if she is already 16 and only 5'4 ?
[Editor Rob: it could depend on whether either parent had later growth genes. You could have a situation of still gaining 3-4 inches at that age, even for a girl, if it's in the genetics.
But she may have inherited more of the shorter genes and not gain as much.]

said on 14/Oct/15
Hey Rob. Something really exciting happens after a full nights sleep every morning. When I first jump out of bed and immediately measure myself after putting on my 1 inch running shoes I stand 6'0"! However my actual height after standing all day barefoot is 5'9 15/16"! Between my morning just out of bed height plus shoes on there is just over 2 inches difference than my evening barefoot height! I've always wanted to be 6'0" in barefeet! Never made the mark! I just turned 50 in August and I can say for sure that I haven't lost any height whatsoever as of yet! I was 5'10" by age 18 and began to measure myself obsessively after age 18 hoping that I would grow to 6'0" by 21 but it never happened. Oh well I guess 5'10" is close enough that I reach the 6 foot mark very briefly with shoes on first thing in the morning! Pretty awesome!
[Editor Rob: yes, it is unfortunate we shrink from morning heights, some people do lose a bit more than 1 inch, but the average is like 3/4 of an inch.]
said on 8/Oct/15
Hi again Rob. I was just wondering if you could give me your expert opinion. If I am 5'103/4" first thing in the morning and after standing for 8 hours I get down to about 5'9 and 15/16ths can I comfortably say I am a strong or flat 5'10"? My measurements are in barefeet.
[Editor Rob: yes an honest 5ft 10 in my opinion...a strong 5ft 10 might never drop under 5ft 10 and most of the day be a little above the mark.]

Additional question to my previous one on 30th September. My friend also measured his own height under my compulsion because he's very conscious about it and usually feels small. He was glad to find out that he's 170.5. At least that made him happy. But I believe I have a considerably little advantage against him barefoot. How much is a fraction according to you, Rob? I could round it up to 171, but I'd like to know. Thanks!
[Editor Rob: sometimes being within 1/4 inch inch means you can barely tell any difference, so really only if you put something on heads or go back to back and have someone look at both of your heads, could people tell that difference apart.]

Hey Rob what height do i claim if im 176.5cm right out of bed 175.4 during the day and absolute minimum about 174.5
[Editor Rob: in your case if you say 175cm to people, most are never going to think you are not that height. If I had those measurements I'd probably go with 175 myself...or 'about 5ft 9']
said on 1/Oct/15
how is that possible rob? I am just a hair over 176 cm in night and i hit 5'10 (177.5 cm- 178 cm) with shoes on. I am not anywhere near 179cm to 180cm.
very strange i dont get it. Like my wardrobe is 160 cm and it comes beneath my nose or at point of my nose.
But thank you for your answer rob.

Hey, Rob. I checked my height using one of those ultrasonic coin operated height/weight/bodyfay/BMI machines and it was 170.8. Are these accurate calculations or is hair included in the mentioned scale?
[Editor Rob: some people kind of lean back/forward and don't stand as upright...the beam tries to hit the highest point, but if you lean back or forward it might not get the highest point of your skull and get your height wrong a fraction. The weighing portion should be far more accurate though.]

How tall is Jeffrey Garten (Ina Garten's husband)?
said on 17/Sep/15
Hi Rob. I have a way of measuring myself that I personally think is possibly quite accurate. Standing about 3 feet away from my bathroom mirror I take my tape measure and hold it under the front of my big toe and then pull it to the relative level of my head. Looking in the mirror I am extremely convinced I get a spot on measurement! The further back I stand from the mirror the more clearly I can see the top of my head! I consistently have measured myself as 5'10 3/4 out of bed and after standing all day I dip to a tiny fraction below 5'10". Do you think my measuring method is able to give me an accurate reading?
[Editor Rob: you can get a roughly accurate measurement that way yeah, especially if you stand several feet away and your hair is quite flat.]
said on 15/Sep/15
Rob you are of the opinion that one doesn't grow that much after 18. Can you please say just a little about what made you come to that conclusion.
I measured 180cm in june 2012 at almost 18. The following year I measured 180cm again in september 2013 at almost 19. In august 2014 close to the age of 20, I measured 183cm. Last month (now approaching 21), I did another medical and came at 193cm.
The reason I'm asking you is because I discovered that I didn't grow 1cm for almost 2 years (june 2012 - september 2013) and then grew 13cm in 12 months (at over 18 years).
N.B most of the measurements were taken at midday (between 12PM and 2PM) though the one I took in june 2012 might've been earlier ( I don't remember the exact time but its probably around 10AM and 11AM).
[Editor Rob: the research on it shows that from 18-21 the average growth is small, so the vast majority won't grow. There will be a smaller percentage who do gain, even some gaining significant (several inches) during that period...]

Rob, in "Celebs my Height" section, in the lists can you at least put down which celebrity page has photos. You know, like what you did with the A-Z section. If that's possible? plz
said on 11/Sep/15
Rob are their any celebrities that you are sure are 5'11.5". That height is interesting to me. When I mean 5'11.5" I mean that is the height the celebrity most likely is. For an example leonardo dicaprio is listed 5'11.5" and that is because that is the top end rage even though he is proven to be 5'11". Do you know celebrities you are sure that they are 5'11.5". What should I search to find 5'11.5"? 6'0"?
[Editor Rob: sometimes if I am not so sure I would list someone at the upper end of the 'guess'. DiCaprio for instance, he could be anywhere in 5ft 11-11.5 range I feel.]
Magic said on 10/Sep/15
I don't believe that all VIPS lies on their height, 5-6 hours are much! A person is measured and weighted by doctor in early morning(2-3 hours , at most 4 hours since wake up), example visit 10-10.30 a.m (wake up 8 a.m.).
Now I don't know how much diffirence there is between a measure after 3 hours and a after 5 hours but believe max 1 cm!
Here in Italy is suggest measure own height of morning because evening bring shrink of 1-2 cms or more!

Rob, could you be an expert on hair lengths too?
[Editor Rob: hair can be tricky, but the more I've observed of styles and where skulls are, the better I think I could get an idea how much a hairstyle adds.
Sometimes what looks thick doesn't add that much, other times a style is deceptive and the person is getting more than it might look.]

I bothered to ask Mario and Isabel on Twitter about their height, for BKM and Roadrunner.
The organization they founded responded saying that Mario was 5' 7.75", but he prefers simply 5' 7". And, Isabel is 5'.
said on 24/Aug/15
Rob what height do you think is beginning of tall in your 5'8" perspective. I am around 6'1 5/8-6'1 3/4" at the end of the day. I feel short sometimes. I went to niagra falls today and felt short their were around 4 guys bigger than me 2 who are within an inch of me like the 6'1-6'2" range.
[Editor Rob: views of height can change depending on the height you are and the circumstances (groups of friends might influence how you feel). At 5ft 8, 5ft 11 feels tall to me, but generally once you get into 6ft range in public I think in most countries you are tall (or at start of that range).]
said on 10/Aug/15
Rob I have a question. How much height can you lose from age and do you think it's possible to lose this much in your 40's. My father is 5'11 1/8" at the end of the day and he says he was around 5'11.5" or 5'11.75" when in his 20's while in the military. He has gained 200 pounds in the past 20 years and he is 43 years old. He doesn't have any back problems just weight and heart problems. He weighs 360ish and was he ever that close to 6 foot and shrunk or do you think he lied about being a six footer like most 5'11 guys do.
[Editor Rob: Jakertini, I think it is possible by mid 40's to lose that amount of height, although generally most men might not really lose much more than a small fraction by 45, such that it would be hard to even tell. Some people have jobs which cause wear&tear, others might develop disc degeneration early, some lose cartilage, fractures in discs, some women even develop early osteoporosis in 40's.]

I found this site by many attempts to get as close to a correct height of Sarah Michelle Gellar since on the I M D B site which I've been using mostly for shows, movies, episodes and their titles to keep my collection of such things accurate and chronological. But, my insatiable curiosity always gets me reading any info posted by those who are not necessarily the Celebrity or their representatives, but by fans like me if they know something about whatever celebrity they give trivia about, or life stories, etc.
On that site it lists Gellars height as 5'4" and the same height for Alyson Hannigan. I've been watching my Buffy collection and every time her and Alyson are walking together Alyson is clearly inches taller. Also in the Showa Gellar typically wears short boots with what looks like at least two inch heels, and yet walking next to Alyson wearing sneakers from Converse, and Gellar her typical footwear, Gellar still is quite a bit shorter.
And for those who have written that Charisma Carpenter is less than 5'7" I strongly suggest try looking at her in this cast including whatever footwear she and the others around her in any scene and she is (as of her departure to Angel after Season 3) she is the fourth tallest in the show. Angel, Xander, and Spike are taller. Drusilla is almost the same height as Cordelia when she is standing up straight which is not often because her character is nearly always moving in crouching positions, or sitting or lying down.
And YES as one person wrote, just like the cast of Happy Days...BTVS show is a cast of mainly midgets so the central character won't look like she is standing in a hole most the time. Her scenes with Angel who almost always looks like he's hunched over (he's supposed to be my height at 6'1" and perhaps he is since he towered over Buffy. And then her other "boyfriend" Riley was also at least a foot taller standing with Gellar, but I couldn't find a print height for him. I'd have to guess he's at least 6' if not closer to 6'2".
It's simple between Charisma Carpenter and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Carpenter is very likely 5'7" or 5'6" and Gellar is likely 5'2" or perhaps even a tiny bit shorter. None of which truly changes my life since I'll never meet either or anyone famous in my lifetime, but I had to satisfy my curiosity and answer some remarks I've read on this site about these two women.

Do you give any bodybuilders' heights? I'm just curious. Toney Freeman in particular because he claims 6'2, which is extremely tall got a bodybuilder. But on his instagram he stands eye to eye with Gary Sheffield (5'11) and is a lot shorter than Marcellus Wiley (6'4). In a shorter man's sport it's easy to add inches if you're a little taller. Just wondered if you had ever looked into that.
[Editor Rob: I don't really put up much bodybuilders.]

Rob how do I keep a large portion of my morning height. I am a weak 6'2" and want to be as close to 6'2" as possible. In the morning I can be around 6'2.25" or 6'2.5" depending on my sleep could I maybe be a flat 6'2". If I drink a fair amount of water I am 6'1.5" at the end of the day and If I don't get enough I dip to 6'1 3/8". Another question is what is my eye level I am around 6'1.5" at the end of a good day
[Editor Rob: I'd say your eyelevel should typically fall around the 5ft 8.5-9 range, somewhere in that zone. To keep morning height, well I'd avoid doing activities that put a lot of strain on the spine, like rotating movement, carrying heavy bags...but really, if you took 5-10 minute lie downs every couple of hours, you might maintain a better height through the day and not reach your low point. ]

Hi Rob, If I took a tape measure and put it flat on the ground straight right in front of me and took a pencil and the pencil landed at 5'10 1/8" for my eye level in the middle. How tall do you think I could be ? Thanks!

If you have distanced feelings towards height, then why do you run a forum in regards to height?
[Editor Rob: I find it an interesting topic and I believe I have made a reasonably entertaining site out of the topic.
by distanced, I try not to attach positive or negative feelings towards height or view the 5ft man as inferior to the 6ft man.
said on 6/Jul/15
Hey rob I have a question. Does it bother you when see girls or women who are almost as tall as you or taller than you. I am a weak 6'2" and I feel less masculine hearing about tall beautiful models who are like 6'4", 6"6", and 6'3". I have seen pictures of you with women larger than you does it bother you. How do I get over this feeling
[Editor Rob: height is a trait largely dictated by inherited genetics and random small mutations.
It is hard to explain on a forum how I have distanced feeling towards height, to an extent it is just a physical number to me.]

said on 2/Jul/15
Rob, what would you happen to choose more. Morning height or Night height?
[Editor Rob: since you drop a lot of height within first 2 hours, by the time you are out the door for work you will be closer to your low height than your morning. I think giving an afternoon height is perfectly fine.
Technically you can give your morning if you want, but I'd maybe mention it if you told people...you could be near 5ft 10 out of bed and a friend the same height knows he was 5ft 9 at 3pm...if you say 5ft 10, he might think you are lying, but say '5ft 10 out of bed', maybe it makes more sense. That person might not even be aware of out of bed height, they might check their own as a result!]

Have you ever thought about expanding? I'm thinking along the lines of adding a forum/discussion board. That way people can create their own personal user - and it would be a lot easier navigating through different sections. Have one section for growth, proportions, shoe lifts, stretching, off topic +++. I'm willing to bet that this community would eventually become a lot more knitted that way.
There's definitely a lot of potential in your website. Thank you for being a pioneer!

Rob, how much of a discrepancy do you think there is between the height that women find most attractive in men, and the height that men would like to be? Do you think men overestimate how tall women want them to be? What about the reverse for women, as their preferred height range relates to the general preferences of men?

Rob, today i was in a store that were selling the house furniture. Then i was looking at fridges,to my delight few of the fridges had measurements ( Height, width and Depth) estimated and written on them. Out of my curiosity i started to measure myself with couple of them.
First it was a small fridge estimated to be 156 cm. Then i stood next to a fridge that estimated to be 172 cm.
when i stood in front of the 156 cm tall fridge, the roof or top of the fridge was at middle of chin or lower side.
Then i stood infront of the 172 cm tall fridge, the the top of fridge touched my hairline or upperforhead.
How would you estimate my height based on fridges' measurements?

[Editor Rob: if it's in your genes it will happen. I'd ask your parents if they or even any of their siblings (assuming they have them) had any sort of growth about 18-20 that they remember...this might give you a better idea if it is still a chance or not.]

[Editor Rob: if you are young it can be part of a routine that might make you maximise any growth left. If you are 25+ and have bad posture it might help, if you are a bit dehydrated and start to drink better and do stretching I believe that can help a little.
But if you are fit and already flexible? Look at guys like Bruce Lee, Van Damme or martial artists like that. They spent a ton of time stretching/exercise through their 20's but did they grow? No, they already were at their physical maximum, the stretching didn't do anything apart from keep flexible.]

Hi rob what is Jenny's height before bed in the morning and in the afternoon?
[Editor Rob: currently she can get on the stadiometer near 5ft 8.75 and at her low can dip to 5ft 7.75, but I've been working with her on posture and the last few times her low has been 5ft 7 7/8ths on the device.
I did a video months ago of her absolute low which was under 5ft 7.75, that's after being up for like 24 hours and not being that well hydrated.
That's an extreme, everybody after conditions like dehydration or intensive sport could measure a little less than their typical low value.]

Rob, is it ever ok to claim just your morning height or will that be a problem?
[Editor Rob: it's not wrong, because it is of course a valid measurement. But it only lasts a short time.
I suppose a question if you claimed a morning height would be when you met someone who claimed afternoon or evening height, both of you same size, possibly claiming nearly 1 inch apart...]

Hi rob may I ask is Jenny your mother or a friend to you?

Hi! I couldn't find where to request a height. Could you please add actor James Tupper? He's listed everywhere as being 5'9'' but it really doesn't seem right. In "Mercy" he looked two or three inches taller than 5ft 8in Taylor Schilling and the same for "Revenge" with Emily VanCamp, who according to you is 5ft 8.25in. Thanks. See Click Here

Hey Rob, is there any chance of making a Facebook Fanpage or Group of Celebheights or is it a bad idea?

Hey Rob, how are you? Do you think that in this photo, Click Here
Manu Bennett is wearing some sort of cowboy boots? If so, what height would you say he reaches?
The photo was taken at the European Comic Con 2015 a couple of days ago.
[Editor Rob: they're not huge cowboy boots like 2 inchers, but they definitely give 1.5-1.6 at least...which if you were wearing a 0.6 inch converse and standing beside him, he'd have an inch footwear advantage over you.]

Rob i measured my height at 11 30 pm 3 times and this is what i got: 175.8 , 176.0 and 176.05.

Hi rob I can't seem to measure my height accurately it is different every time i do it do you have any ideas that are very accurate thank you
[Editor Rob: measuring height shouldn't be difficult...I would try to find the best wall with a flat floor. I showed a video recently Here
of me measuring my height with a few objects...I'd find an old video cassette holder and use that...and do the way I'm doing it to get a good enough measurement (within a mm or 2 of your real height).]

[Editor Rob: I don't know, I think if you reached 6ft-6ft 1 range that would be typical...but then you have people like me who at that height/age never gained anymore really...and a couple of friends who I remember were 5ft 6-7 at 14 and got 6ft 1ish and near 6ft 3.]

Hey Rob, I've been a longtime fan of the site and I can't help but notice that the celebrity height listings are disproportionately skewered towards the really tall. From what I've read, the average height for a man in the Western world is about 5'9-5'10" but there's an abnormal amount of extremely tall celebrities posted on your site (more than half of your top 50 celebs list is over 6' going up to 7'!) . I was wondering why that was? Do people have more interest in knowing about taller celebs or are they just more likely to put themselves out there and get photographed by people? Appreciate an answer Rob!
[Editor Rob: there is an interest in taller celebrities more than shorter celebrities it seems, although with big names, those who are average-short like Bieber/Cruise still are sitting near the top.
Also the database is a bit skewed with like basketball and wrestling stars who predominantly are taller than average.]

Hi rob, i have been looking at tokio hotel the group band for over 5 years now and cant for the love of good figure out the height of the individuals in the group.
Some of them wear lifts. i conclude that the main singer must round about 5'10-11
while his brother is 5'9. and hits 5'11 in his lifts. Just want your input on this. Thank you so much. bookmarked this until further notice. Bye.
[Editor Rob: I'd need to look at these guys as at a glance I'm not sure.]
177-178 cm guy said on 17/Apr/15
I'm 5'9.75" at the end of the day, is it OK to round up to 5'10" seeing as I am that tall during the first half of the day? It's what I claim when people ask.
Kourosh said on 15/Apr/15
Thank you rob for your answers.
You were almost spot on. for first guy he is 178cm and for second guy he is 177cm.
both of them are my classmate and we were measured together and very close in height.

Rob, If someone is 172cm morning, and 170cm night, what height should they claim?
[Editor Rob: what you feel comfortable with.
Some people take a morning then evening and average it, so might go with 171.
Others like myself go with afternoon/evening (not much difference) so I personally would say 170cm...]
said on 27/Mar/15
Hey Rob, my dad is around 5'4 tall and I'm around that height as well, but slightly taller.
I'm still in my teen years, so is it possible for me to grow up to at least 5'8?

Hello Rob, i'm 16 years and 3 months old, and i am 5'9 5/8" (176.9 cm). I was 174.4 cm (5'8.66") like almost a year ago. How tall do you think i will be when i'm done growing? Will i reach 5'10" or 5'11"?
[Editor Rob: somewhere between that 5ft 10 and 11 range is very possible. If you beat the average you might get near to 6ft.]
Kourosh said on 19/Mar/15
thanks rob. I thought he would be taller than just 5'8. He looks tall 5'9 to 5'10 ranges in the pictures and others i have seen from him. Maybe because of his body frame.
but anyway thanks rob.

with 5'8.5 man : Click Here Click Here
note that he doenst have good posture and dropping abit of height in the photos but hes got slight show advantage which adds about 0.7 inches.
what height would you list him? is he what he claims 5'9 barefoot 5'10 with shoes on?
[Editor Rob: he might not be far from his claim, it's possible he is 5ft 8.5 though.]

This is couple pictures with his 5'8.5 father :Click Here Click Here
He is a friend of mine on facebook and we talk alot about heights and how height is important in our society. He claimed to be 5'9.5 barefoot and 5'10 with shoes. So i want to get his height accurately to see how honest he is about oit. He doesnt have good posture in those photos though but he is wearing a bit thick trainers which i think add about 0.8 inches of height.
[Editor Rob: I couldn't view the photos....on facebook you have the ability to set an individual post or photo to be 'public viewable' which it needs to be for anybody to view it.]
said on 12/Mar/15
So Rob hes exaggerating his height by 1-2 inches?. He claims that hes 5'10. And i showed the picture to him and he said he towered over the old guy.
[Editor Rob: from what I remember he looked near 3 inches taller than the older guy, so an inch exaggeration maybe.]
said on 10/Mar/15
Rob, the older guy is 5'6 so whats the height of the young guy?
[Editor Rob: he looks nearer 5ft 9 there.]
said on 1/Mar/15
Hey Rob, I'm 67.25 inches in the morning, and 66.5 inches at night. Should I claim 66.75 inches?

said on 11/Feb/15
Just some questions on the terminology some posters use on the site. What do you mean by flat? Like when someone in the comments refers to a celebrity as a 'flat 5'11"'. Also when some refers to someone as a "weak 6 foot". Does that basically mean that they are exactly on the mark.
[Editor Rob: just not over the 5ft 11 mark, weak 5ft 11 might be a guy who could drop at least 1/4, maybe up to 1/2 inch under a 5ft 11.]

[Editor Rob: if you have an interest to see how you are growing then why not, but I think people can end up getting too worked up when they measure regularly and aren't growing. Every 6 months is useful to see how much you grew during that time.]

I've been visiting this site for years. An absolutely amazing compilation; don't know how you do it. Whenever I'm curious about someone's height I just check it out here. I'd like to know the height of Dion DiMucci ("Dion," the singer). Couldn't find it here tonight. I was a short kid in high school (long time ago)/only 5'3" tall as a sophomore. Graduated from high school at 6'1"/145 lbs. All the food I ate went into bone growth, I think.
[Editor Rob: Dion could look a quite average guy, maybe 5ft 9 range]
said on 25/Jan/15
Hey Rob. I was 5'9' through high school. I'm 20 now and I just measured myself at 5'10.25 at night. Is it normal for people to grow at my age?
[Editor Rob: it's rare, but not impossible. The plates might not be fused totally so potential growth could occur.]
said on 21/Jan/15
How do you go about submitted a celeb entry for the site?; to my surprise I didn't find 'Carey Hart' / P!nks husband on this site, he's stated by Google without very little source to be 5'11 which I believe is absurd.
P!nk is around 5'3, what would your analysis be?
[Editor Rob: well I spent a minute and found that he described himself as 5ft 10, so that's the max he'd be. He might be calling his height in shoes and be more 5ft 9.]
said on 21/Jan/15
@Rob is bang on middle or even slightly above. Is it still an inch difference?
[Editor Rob: it could be 0.75-1 inch, anywhere around that range.]
said on 20/Jan/15
Rob if my eyes is at somebody's middle nose , how much height difference is between us?
[Editor Rob: if it was end of nose possibly close to 2 inches, but middle should be an inch or so.]

No,it's not possible that he is taller than 6ft.I would guess that he is at max 5 11 1/2,unquestionably not over than 6ft at these days.(at his height shrinking stage.Even in his youth ,I would still have doubts if he was really 6ft 1/2.

I tried grow taller 4 idiots and I grew about 2 inches, from 5'9.7" to 5"11.5" morning height from the exercises, but then I discovered that it's the same thing as astronauts growing taller from time in space free from gravity. The exercises are spine straightening and gravity defying, so of course it will make you grow taller. However, after a month of not doing the exercises I regressed to my former height. You should keep some of the height if you keep it up though..but more realistically like 0.2 inches instead of 2-4.

For many years i had the complex, because my opposing player are often taller than me (i'm shooting guard)..then many times i was obsessed by the height, even i compare to the actors,to the players..and your site was perfect to see the real height of the stars.Thank you so much!
To rispond to damang, i'm a big fan of incubus band and i appreciate Brandon Boyd. I met him in Rome for an art exhibition and i made a photo with this great guy. He's really tall and skinny guy, he's solid 6'1'' (185cm) without shoes or trampoline, but not 188 how it's written from the web sites.

I guess the links to the individual photos of Mario J. Lucero and Isabel Ruiz didn't post. The photo of Mario with that shotgun is on his Country Music Television profile. Click Here
And, my estimations about Mario's height was right, I found their heights over at Freebase:
Mario: 1.737m Click Here
Isabel: 1.524m Click Here
Forgot to explain who the three celebs I submitted are, just in case people don't know:
Al Hurricane, born Alberto Sanchez, is often referred to as The Godfather of New Mexico music. He has created over thirty albums, and was the subject of a tribute concert.
Mario J. Lucero is the cofounder and designer of Heaven Sent Gaming. He is an author, country musician, and entrepeneur.
Isabel Ruiz is the cofounder and artist of Heaven Sent Gaming. Her artwork displays a wide variety of influences, from Japanese manga -to- Pueblo geometric designs.
said on 19/Sep/14
Howdy, I'm from Taos, New Mexico, but my family and I are now living in New York City for work. I often miss home, but to "travel" home I enjoy some New Mexican music and various other NM celebs. You have the Breaking Bad main cast, and Neil Patrick Harris. But, here's a few that I personally know that would be good additions to the site, since they aren't well publicized.
Al Hurricane is 5'6", Mario J. Lucero is 5'7", and Isabel Ruiz is 5'.
Here's some phtographic proof, here a pic with all three of the celebs, twice! Click Here Click Here
Here's another photo of Al Hurricane, that sign is 4'9", and he's looking a bit under a foot taller than it, so 5'6"-5'7" makes sense. Click Here
Here's one of Mario J. Lucero holding a shotgun, one that I happen to own too, my son and I did some measurements of the weapon, it was 2'3", and Mario would be about 2 and 5/11 shotguns tall making him 5'7"-5'8".
Isabel Ruiz's height of 5' was from a height listing that I can't find anymore.
I'm 6'10", but most of my brothers were 5'6" like most New Mexicans. We've got tall spirits though.

Thank you for your response,the thing strange is that I when was 18-19 years old,I measured me with balance eletronic with detected height,and I with shoes(3 cm of heels in a point a bit first of the talon,but i believe that it gived me 2 cm at the max)I was 169 cm,I believe without shoes had to be 166-167 cm.Maybe the hairs give me 1-2 cm also if they was flat(if i remember well),these tools of the pharmacy,do it measure well/good?Before I did swimming,now I study and I'm to the computer all the day,without sport,maybe I have a poor posture o maybe no,infacts I would want re-do swimming!What do you think?
[Editor Rob: it's always better to measure yourself because the tool in the pharmacy might not be as accurate. It could be wrong.
I've spent 15 years in front of computers for work, and it can effect your posture a bit - I would recommend doing some basic stretches each day to help your back muscles. Just like stretching up, touching toes, twisting your body round. Simple stuff.]

I'm a man and i'm 22 years old.I'm 5'4 1/2 and live in Italy.
Rob,am I too much short?With great difficulty I see men with my same age,with same height or more low.Also many girls are taller than me!
Above all,I have this trouble and I feel down and ill, I would say almost depressed.Why for me and for others is the height thus important?
[Editor Rob: no, if I met you I would see you are under the average but, after that I wouldn't bother about it.
Always remember, without short people, tall people can't be tall!
I'm going to call you BIG Magic.]

Rob my mom says I look alot like her brother when he was younger in stature and aesthetics and she said when he was 16 he was 5'10.5-5"11 like me and his peak height was 6'1 since were so similar will I be his height or atleast 6ft
said on 24/Aug/14
Do you think weight lifting,squats,deadlift at the age of 16 can stunt growth?
[Editor Rob: I don't know about stunting, but it certainly puts a lot of strain on your discs. Improper form and too heavy weights could always lead to some disc damage over time.]
Lemmy said on 19/Aug/14
I was surprised to find out Sid Vicious was 6ft 2...but then when you see him with the other Sex Pistols he's a lot taller. Not sure where to submit new people so will try here as Sid would be a good addition to the site

Rob I measured myself using the aerosol on perfect wall method and I got 5'10.25 im actually shorter than the 5'10.5 I thought I was sucks I can only imagine what glenn felt when he founf out he was 2 inches shorter than he thought.although it is midnight and I just finished a long day can I still claim 5'10.5
[Editor Rob: a lot of guys around your mark might just go with 5ft 10.5. Glenn didn't quite come in 2 inches shorter, only 1 and 1/3rd inch...still, it was certainly a shock to him that he's never fully recovered from.
In fact, going by the amount of times on his facebook/instagram he claimed 5ft 8 you would think he should seek a Doctor's opinion on his amnesia problem.]

Hey rob I used to be the shortest in ny class in elementary.in middle school I was well under average.in sophmore year I was now taller than average at 5'11-5'10 also what do you think of my growth record. 12-4'10,13-5',14-5'5,15-5'7.4,16 now and 5''11 so I had a huge growth.You think that lifting this year was promoting growth.
[Editor Rob: it's steady and large progression for each year, probably more at 16-17 than average gains at that age.]

Hey rob do you think lifting 20 lbs and I just turned 16 will it stunt my growth? I also stretch before I lift
[Editor Rob: 20lbs isn't that much, if it was very heavy weights it might potentially damage you longer term...but there was one girl who took part in a height challenge on this site age nearly 18 when she was measured (she reached this height at age 16) of 5ft 5.4 and then at age nearly 21 I remeasured her at just about 5ft 6! She took up some basic weight lifting for about a year...]

If im 5'11.5 out bed and 5'10.5 at night and I just turned 16 and still growing significantly is that good for my age and will I grow more even though both my parents were 5'5 and 5'6 at peak heights.maybe il be like 6'3 Jeremy lin right rob?
[Editor Rob: you already have gained more than some might...there is still potential couple of years left, so as long as you keep eating, keep up exercise and maybe a bit of stretching, then that's all you can do...if you gain another few inches you would be in the tall range.]

I love this site but I constantly see people trying to downgrade heights. I realize a lot of celebrity heights are in inflated but I see so many ridiculous posts. Not sure if it's due to ego or denial in owns height. For example I see people posting claims of the Rock being 6" to 6 1". This is absolutely ridiculous! I have seen this man many time in person and he is easily 6 3". Rob you always seem to nail the height bang on yet so many outrageous downgrades from posters. It seems like the taller the guy the more people try to downgrade. Just my 2 cents....
[Editor Rob: people are always entitled to their guesses, but sometimes you can only stretch believability so far. There used to be a photo of rock on the site with a 5ft 8 guy Mamun and it was clear he wasn't anywhere as low as 6ft 1]

How tall is Eric Shawn on FOX News??
said on 29/Jun/14
Rob you say: "The lowest I ever measure is a hair over 5ft 8." when commenting about your height. 173cm is more just than a hair over 5ft8in as its a full 1/8th inch. So you DO dip below 173.0cm at times? do you go as low as 172.8cm u think? what i am asking here to be clear is: what is your absolute lowest height in centimeters exactly?
[Editor Rob: last several years against a wall whenever I tried, that would be my absolute lowest, in the 173-173.1cm range, not hit 172.8cm yet.]

Thanks for kindly replying Rob, just one more question, should be an interesting one. Who appears taller compared to John Cena out of Seth Green or Rey Mysterio?
Thanks for your opinion, really appreciate it! Great website
[Editor Rob: Seth looks taller I think]

@Rob and Greg
How about sitting through 4-6 months of limb lengthening vs trading a finger for extra height which
would you choose? I'd do the ll lol.
[Editor Rob: if the risks of LL were lower then maybe...but even if I had 30 grand spare I don't think I would do that as it's really a year you need out.]

To Rob or commenters,
I would appreciate if you could explain here how to properly insert a link (in a comment).
[Editor Rob: just make sure the link has a space before and after so http://www.thelink.com/ in your comment would get changed to 'Click here'.
BUT if the link is to an image like http://www.linkto.com/image.jpg then I request that you use tinyurl to get a shortened link.]

Rob, can I get your opinion on what height Muggsy Bogues is please? Everyone lists him at 5'3 but would like a more considered estimate given that NBA heights may be with or without shoes? In the picture here Click Here
He looks closer to 5'4 but the ruler is cut off. Need your expert opinion please.
[Editor Rob: in sneakers he looks near 5ft 5 there in sneakers, but then it is not on that level a ground, so the ruler could always be sitting a little bit lower than his sneakers.]
said on 20/Jun/14
Rob,would you trade a finger for an extra inch of height? If not for one inch, how many would be a fair deal?
[Editor Rob: I like all my fingers, so no trade for me :)]
said on 18/Jun/14
Rob, if I may ask, if you could chose to be any height, would you stay the same, or be taller or shorter?
[Editor Rob: for getting photos for this site and guessing height I think 6ft would be ideal.]
said on 15/Jun/14
Hello Rob! It is Lola Ponce next to J.Lo. As you see she has a massive platform advantage over Jennifer. Do you think they are the same height when they are barefeet or wearing same footwear. I think Lola could be 5'4".
[Editor Rob: I don't know what jlo is wearing there, hard to really see]

Hi Rob, any guesses on how tall Neil Innes might be?
[Editor Rob: possibly in 5ft 10-11 range ]
said on 9/Jun/14
Excellent! Thanks Rob, that is it. I think they look like Hogans. What do you think?
Hogans don't advertise themselves as excessively tall, but they do look very chunky.
[Editor Rob: the interactive model is one that looks like it has some internal higher insole, in a way it looks like an elevator type shoe even though it probably isn't being described as such. You could get 2 inches out of them]

I searched for the height of Simone Bittencourt, the Brazilian singing superstar who played for the Brazilian national basketball team. One site claims she is 178 cm (5'10").
said on 6/Jun/14
I think the rules are strict i mean come on look at other websites they don't delete comments that are offensive you say you respect opinions respect my opinion why do you think people get on here please reply to this and im not trying to be rude but please reply.
[Editor Rob: isn't it better to discuss in a good manner rather than start name calling, it can deteriorate very quickly when you let some insults through. ]

Rob... Any idea how tall Pat Metheny is?
very not tall said on 2/Jun/14
Interesting site, Rob. I find it pretty fascinating how we lose so much height through the course of the day. Took it upon myself to measure my height at different times and sure enough, I'm 5'9.5" straight out of bed, 5'9.25 midday and about 5'8.75" by evening. It is interesting because 3/4 of an inch is not an imperceptible difference in stature but nobody seems to ever be aware of losing height.

Hello Rob. I am trying to find that picture on your site of Stallone and Katzenberg at a basketball game where Sly looks to be wearing monster shoes. I cannot recall the page it is on, or the make of the shoe!! Could you help please?

Rob please answer to my question. How tall does Natalia Oreiro (the brunette one) looks next to 5'9" Valeria Mazza?
This is the link of Valeria's interview with David Letterman where she says she is 5'9". She has pics with Heidi Klum and Claudia Schiffer as well..

Hey, Rob, sometimes I measure myself at 6'4 and sometimes 6'5.5 ft (immediately after I wake up and at night) what do U think i should measure my height at?
[Editor Rob: you shrink 1.5 inches from out of bed till evening? I would say you could probably say 6ft 4.5 if you shrink that much...which is a fair amount, most shrink 0.75 inches on average.]
said on 18/May/14
Rob if he (Pablo Echarri) is 1.73 cm, then how tall is she (Natalia Oreiro)?
[Editor Rob: possibly 5ft 4.5 ]

Here is a photo of actress Dorothy Ford, who should be added. I can't say how tall she really was but maybe you can estimate it from this photo. She was said to be 6'2: Click Here

What's really important is not one's height but the torso/legs ratio. The ideal ratio is 0.92 for whites and 0.85 for blacks. Read this article "Habitus and Body Proportions" at Click Here

No more e-mail Rob? How can one send data, photos. etc. to you without e-mail?
[Editor Rob: I try to keep questions to the site to cut down on spam]

Rob i got a question, maybe you don't know the answer but still. on days when i walk a lot i am taller than on days when i have been sitting at home all day sitting on the couch? do you know why this is.
[Editor Rob: maybe the way you sit puts more pressure on your spine than your normal walking about does?]

Hi Rob, how come for Rafael Nadal it says 184? It should say 185cm, he is a solid 6 ft 1.

Rob how come celebheights wasn't working two days ago.
[Editor Rob: hmm, it should have been, well maybe for a short period I was updating software which takes a bit of time...]
said on 20/Feb/14
Rob, looking at your morning height (almost 175 cm, right?), can I consider you tall between 173 and 174 cm? I think 174 cm for you is correct about like 173 cm that you usually indicate....
[Editor Rob: since I'm up at 6-7am by mid-day I'm pretty much at 173.2cm so I wouldn't really call myself 174, and when seeing celebrities I'm not really seeing them 2 hours out of bed]

George Clarke architect stated on Amazing Spaces that he was 6ft 3ins

Man, I never knew that Demi Lovato and I have the same height. Must've been about the food I've been eating so many.

Can you please add Antonio Sabato Jnr to this site? He lies about his height more than anyone I've ever heard! :-) We've gotta "out" this shorty. :-) In my opinion, he'd be lucky to be 5'9 or 5'10", yet I've heard him claim to be 6'2, and many websites list him as 6'1, or 185cm. No way :-) Ha

Gene Barry was not 6 feet tall, he was about 5'9''. This is according to his co-star on The Adventurer tv series Catherine Schell. On Burke's Law, camera angles and length of shots were used to disguise his height.
