Looked about 5cm taller than Fassbender on Assassin's Creed.I'd say listing is right,maybe 1/4 inch under 6'1 at worst.

Weak 188cm peak.
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 9/Jul/16
scraping 188cm at peak in my opinion
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 6/Jul/16
A weak 6'2 guy peak I think. I wouldn't rule out a strong 6'2 but rampage, you have a point.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jun/16
I think he could look 188/189cm at times peak.
Lenad 5ft9.75in said on 17/Jun/16
185-186 now, 187-188 when younger

Depardieu look 2-2,5in inder him iron mask so Depardieu was still 180cm in 98

"Peak Height was 6ft 1¾in (187cm)"

No less than that and quite possibly the full 6ft2. I agree that he looks more 6ft1 flat today...
SomeGuy said on 8/May/16
Rob I think his current height is 6 ft 0.75 in (185 cm).

Here he is with Dev Patel: Click Here Click Here Click Here

What do you think?
Editor Rob: considering he's now 67, it is likely he has lost half inch at least.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/16
I think he was a solid 6ft2 peak...
MAO said on 26/Mar/16
He is shorter than Ben Affleck he is 185
MAO said on 26/Mar/16

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Feb/16
Rob, is 188cm peak a possibility?
Editor Rob: I'm not as sure he really was a solid 6ft 2 guy in 80's
That guy said on 25/Feb/16

He look 6'2 in die hard with a vengeance
Arch Stanton said on 30/Jan/15
Did look near 6'2" in The French's Lieut's Woman.
Lebensdorf said on 5/Dec/14
I saw him in a clothing store in New York. This was about 5-6 years ago. He was definitely 6'2. Now I think he is closer to 6'1. He seems to have shrunk a little. Compared to Liam Neeson in "The Mission," he was no more than 2 inches shorter. More recently, he looked 6'1 in "The Borgias."
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Nov/14
He looks 6ft1¾(187cm) in that picture w/h Prince William
Vibram said on 30/Oct/14
He's now about 6ft1.5 compared to 6ft3 Prince William. Slightly over 6ft2 peak is very probable (say 189cm). Click Here
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/14
Rob, could he have been a 6ft2 guy in the 70s-80s?
Arch Stanton said on 18/Oct/14
Weak 6'2 in Reversal of Fortune.
Arch Stanton said on 18/Oct/14
Rob can you add a photo and films like The Mission, Dead Ringers, Kafka, The French Lieutenant's Woman and Appaloosa? He is also known for the voice of Scar in The Lion King and for playing Pope Alexander VI in the TV series The Borgias.
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in said on 26/Sep/14
186-187cm range now seems reasonable
jtm said on 21/Jul/14
please don't compare him to dicaprio.
Guy said on 19/Jul/14
Btw in appaloosa he looks like 183 next t Viggo Mortensen.
Guy said on 17/Jul/14
Looks like 185-186 here with Leonardo DiCaprio Click Here
Lenad is sexy said on 26/Jan/14
scraping the 6'3 mark out of bed wouldn't be improbable. I still think Irons was a solid 188cm guy, but I wouldn't rule out 189cm. These days he looks 187cm max
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jan/14
Actually, I think a solid 6ft2 in his 20s-30s if not a fraction over. He looked really tall in the 70s and 80s. That way he have scraped the 6ft3 mark out of bed?
Lenad is sexy said on 12/Jan/14
some sites say 6'3. That's a shoed height no doubt
Lenad is sexy said on 31/Dec/13
186cm now 188cm peak
Lenad is sexy said on 18/Dec/13
he looked at least 4 inches taller than de niro in that movie
Arch Stanton said on 16/Dec/13
Looks about right in The Mission.
Lenad is sexy said on 14/Dec/13
I can't see him shorter than 187cm at his peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Dec/13
"Peak height was 6ft 2in (188cm)"

He claimed 6ft3
Charlie said on 24/Jul/13
"Midnight Rambler" so because youre 186 doesnt mean your people in general are short? get a grip of reality dude.
By the way, Jeremy is 65 years old, how the heck do you expect him to be his peak height?! ofc he shorter now than in his prime.
Lorne said on 26/Jun/13
Could have been nearer 6'2 at peak... He is still a strong 6ft1 today, aged 65. He could easily be 186 today, and a solid 187cm(6ft1.75) at peak. He looked more than a flat 6'1 with Chris Meloni, in 2011. So either 6ft1.75 peak, or he just hasn't lost much.
Midnight Rambler said on 15/Jun/13
No way. I stood close to him in Lisbon. I'm 186 cm (6'1'') and he was clearly shorter than me. I would give him 183 cm (6') or, at most 184 cm (6' 1/2''. Never 187cm (6'1/2''). Please! and they say portuguese people are short...
Ace said on 18/Apr/13
I would give him a full 6'2 peak, and 6'1.5 nowadays. He really didn't look any shorter than that in Die Hard 3.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/13
188cm peak makes sense...looked a solid 6ft2 in Reversal of Fortune.
lenad is sexy said on 9/Feb/13
id give him the full 6'2 peak. Nowadays 186-187
Arch Stanton said on 16/Jan/13
6'3 is a joke. Watching Appaloosa and he looks no more than 6'1" next to Mortensen and Ed Harris. He did look 6'2" in Die Hard.
Silent d said on 10/Oct/12
About the same height as craig ferguson. I was estimating he was about 6 foot 2. In die hard he was pretty tall. 186cm now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Aug/11
187.8cm or a weak 6ft2 might be his exact height. He never looks under 6ft1.5 and can easily look close to 6ft3(191cm).
Lenad is sexy said on 11/Jun/11
floats between 186 and 187cm today. During the normal part of the day at peak, he wouldve measured at a solid 188cm.
Lenad is sexy said on 11/Jun/11
Id say he floats between 186 and 187cm today most likely. Prime he floated between 188 and 189cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/May/11
6"2 peak Rob?
Lenad is sexy said on 26/Apr/11
6 ft 2.25 in prime maybe??
Lenad is sexy said on 23/Apr/11
I'd say 186-187cm today and 188-189cm peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Apr/11
186-187cm range nowadays....6ft2/2.5 in his prime
Viper said on 1/Apr/11
6-1 and change guy max
Ace said on 31/Mar/11
I must disagree Viper. In his prime he was clearly 6'1.5-6'2 at his peak. Nowadays I agree he is closer to 6'1. 6'1.5 at the absolute most, but probably no more than 6'1.
Lenad is sexy said on 19/Jan/11
Height is: 6 ft 1.25 in (186cm) Peak height was: 6 ft 2 in (188cm)
Lenad is sexy said on 19/Jan/11
I reckon 6'2-ish in his younger days. Today more 6'1 range
Viper said on 18/Jan/11
Hes 6-1 at best
George H. said on 17/Jan/11
Saw him in 2004 at the Toronto film festival. Was about 1 inch shorter next to 6'2" Warren Beatty, both in normal shoes.
Anonymous said on 16/Jan/11
Can look 6'3 at times. Strong 6'1 weak 6'2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/10
Unquestionably 6"2 at his peak if not taller.
Ed said on 28/Jul/07
After rewatching Kingdom of Heaven, Irons and Csokas go back and forth. They both look to be about 6ft1, maybe 6ft1.25. Irons looked a good 2 inches shorter than David Thewlis(6ft3) who looked to be almost exactly the same as Liam Neeson(6ft4), which confirms my suspicions that he's shrunk a bit despite his poor posture. Also Thewlis looked to have 5 inches on Orlando Bloom(5ft10.25) who looked to be about 3 inches shorter than Irons. Just based on the movie, Rob's listed heights work pretty well for Irons and the rest of the cast.
5'11.5 guy said on 18/May/07
No way in hell is he 6'3. He's the exact same height as Robbie Coltrane in a movie they did together. 6'1.
Josh said on 19/Jan/07
he´s no taller than 6'1 he actually looks 6'0.5 (184cm) the 6'2 listing is for sure a shoe height.
George H said on 23/Oct/06
Saw him in 2004 on a red carpet with Annette Bening and Warren Beatty. He was about an inch shorter than Beatty. Both were wearing normal shoes.
Ed said on 12/Oct/06
Just saw Kingdom of Heaven, and something is off here, because Irons was taller than the 6ft2.5 listed Marton Csokas. I've beem suspicious of his height since the Lord of the Rings movies in which he was only a few inches taller than Cate Blanchett, and the same for Aeon Flux with Charlize Theron. I'm starting to think Csokas is 6ft at best, which would put Irons at around 6ft1. He did look only about 2.5 to 3 inches taller than Damon, in Bourne supremacy.

no more than 6, even that's a long shot
Editor Rob said on 8/Sep/06
Found his quote, from 1988 Chicago Times
"I want to expand my roles as much as I can, being English, 6 foot 2", so he has claimed that in his peak.
Anonymous said on 14/Jul/06
In Movie of 1980 Jeromy Irons 4 inches shorter Liam Neeson
Gonzalo said on 3/Apr/06
I sawe him on TV in San Sebastian festival and he looked much taller than the journalist who was cheering him. This journalist was 1'76-78 and Irons looked 12 or 14 cm taller. Irons must be near 1`90
Paudie said on 22/Feb/06
Pierce Brosnan is at least 6"1, im from his home town off navan and he visits here alot. I've passed him on the street and hes at least 6"1 tall cause thats my height.
Brett said on 6/Nov/05
You reckon Pierce Brosnan rounds up haha, Mate for one Pierce says his 6'2", and I reckon he rounds down, from my personal encounter with him. Tom hanks in photos with lots of actors looks more then 6'1", he was bigger then Adrien brody and Daniel craig , so I think that unless you know a star personally, you cant judge their honesty haha.
CelebHeights Editor said on 31/Aug/05
From New York Post article - "I noticed a man standing nearby in the lobby who was very tall. Taller than Jeremy. I took the opportunity to finally get a really accurate reading on Jeremy's true height. I realized Jeremy was somewhat taller than I always thought. I asked this man how tall HE was and he said he was 6' 5 1/2". Compared to Jeremy, he was about 3" taller, I thought, which means Jeremy is approximately 6' 3" tall"
Issheuhboy said on 14/May/05
I think only Irons and Duchovny have the only heights you can trust:

Irons 6'1
Duchovny 6'0
Smoke said on 12/Apr/05
Mr. K I like your theory! And I agree that many guys listed at this height do round up, as I have found from personal experience. I'm exactly between 185-186 cm and find that many celebs and even sports stars round up slightly by about a cm or two. Harrison Ford is another example, as is Edward Norton, and Tom Hanks (never met him, but he doesn't quite look 6'1" to me) are also examples. One guy to me, from personal experience, that our editor lists as being 6'1" who is definately taller is Daniel Baldwin, whom my comparison to Stephen does have being an inch taller. My encounter with Baldwin has him at a solid 6'2", you can even see this relative to Cole Hauser in Parazzi.
