Douglas Adams Height
6ft 5in (196 cm)
UK Writer, famous for the Hitchiker's Guide novels. In 2001 after his death, the Guardian had an article, with a friend commenting: "A giant of a man, surely nearer seven foot than six, broad-shouldered, and he did not stoop like some very tall men who feel uncomfortable with their height. But nor did he swagger with the macho assertiveness that can be intimidating in a big man. He neither apologised for his height, nor flaunted it. It was part of the joke against himself"

he was really good friends with Stephen Fry, I wonder if there are any photos of them together for comparison

Am I the only person to have commented on this celebrity? I can't see any comments by other people!

I went to Cambridge University with him and he always hung around with his mates outside my college and they were all very tall; yet not intimidating! I've got a photograph with him somewhere, I should dig it out and donate it to this website.

What is a stone? 14 pounds?

Douglas was spot on 6.5 but never less than 16 stone! Often much heavier, his weight was more of an issue to him than height (we used to go the same gym here in UK for a time) and that was what contributed to his early death when he lived in US - over excersing especially on the bike.

There's a quote in biography:
"A body like this - six foot five inches and seventeen stone - is a huge thing"

I wonder if his large frame (e.g height) contributed to his early death?

He always looked massive when on tv. No doubt about his height.
