How tall is E.T.

E.T.'s Height

3ft 4in (102 cm)

E.T is a Communications Engineer who grew up on the planet Liras Foplo. After crash landing on planet Earth, an introduction to Steven Spielberg changed his life...He was cast in a groundbreaking role - playing himself - in the blockbusting autobiographical film E.T: The Extra Terrestrial. I was lucky enough to meet him on his flying visit to Glasgow last year. In this picture he asked to be put on a table as he felt he would look too short in photos.


5ft 8 with E.T. (he's on my phone here with Spielberg talking about making a sequel!)

I'm really surprised to see a picture of you, Rob, with this fellow! The closest I've ever got to giving him a cuddle was with an empty ET Bubble Bath container that I was given by a 4-year-old!
Editor Rob: he was a charming. Very quiet, but that's to be expected. He travelled a long way just to take a photo with me...

Visited the site today hoping to see Justin Bieber get upgraded to 5'9" or Stallone to 5'11" for April Fools day... Left more satisfied.

I swear ET could alter his height, by elongating his neck.
Sam said on 1/Apr/14
Two questions, Rob, is his neck full extended in the shot and what are you holding in your hand? A case of melting Reese's pieces as a bribe?
[Editor Rob: it's my phone, he was definitely trying to stretch up, but his neck ain't as flexible as it used to be]

No visible lifts, and that neck looks in good posture after all these years.

I bet in dons he still wouldnt appear much taller lol
Connor 184.5-185cm said on 1/Apr/14
Rob if he can heal wounds and cuts with his magic finger then he can surely become taller?
[Editor Rob: he said be tried but it just didn't work...I told him about dons, he seemed intrigued.]

Rob did E.T. phone you at home to ask if you would play a part in the next film? i think you would be great im glad you got to meet him 3ft 4 looks right for him maybe aliens are real after all he seems friendly, and another question how tall do you think he would be when he raises his neck up over 4ft?
[Editor Rob: he said he can't raise his neck up much these days, it's over 30 years, he's getting on a bit now!

I am just waiting on the phonecall from Spielberg any day!]

Bah! - Look at those lifts! This guy is obviously insecure about his height.

Saw him once at an Theme Park - he was too short to get on the rollercoaster
