Do you see much of a difference?
[Editor Rob: Rob could edge him out there I think]

Joe Pesci may just edge out Martin Scorsese in height, although they're definitely similar range. Robert De Niro can pull off looking a solid 6 or 7 inches taller than both guys.

5'5 is laughable , Mel Gibson would be 5'11

Rob , do you think he wears lifts? He looked near Jet Li in their pics.
[Editor Rob: I'm sure sometimes he might have had them]

He can look close to 5'4" at times in some of his films, but today I really think he's 5'2" range.

Well, watching him in Lethal Weapon 2 next to Mel Gibson who wears cowboy boots he looks 160 but reaches Mel's eyes especially in the scene before Riggs falls down in the pool beneath the hotel. I don't know how many inches there could be between the two but Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon looks short, maybe 173 in boots and 168 flat (this is only my opinion). There are few scenes in the Lethal Weapon saga in which his barefoot (Gibson) and the cam always films him form below to make him look taller. In that scene I mentioned before Joe Pesci's barefoot while Danny Glover and Mel Gibson wear shoes, lifted shoes in the case of Mel. I'm not an expert of height comparisons though so cannot judge with extreme certainty.

Nowadays he's clearly around 5ft 2.5-3. When he was younger he would have been nearly 5ft 4.

Hehe if Pesci ever had a birthday cake it would read "**** you you ******* ******" and even the candles would spell out "You mother ******!!" I wonder if Pesci's mother ever had a swear box. You'd be as rich as a casino in no time with him around for every time he swears! Looks 5'3" range in Casino I think.He often looks 6 inches shorter than De Niro, other times can seem more like 5.

Funny but him and Scorsese look an awful lot like the tiny little old fellas I saw talking on the streets of southern Italy in that photo and I swear a lot of those fellas would be lucky to have ever seen 5 ft 4. 5'2"-5'6" is very common for old men in southern Italy.Some of the shortest ones I saw with back trouble though granted I doubt were much over 5 ft but certainly 5 ft 3-4 is a very common height for old guys in southern Italy and Pesci and Scorsese would fit it right away. I don't know if you've ever been Rob but if you ever do go walk through some of the villages in the south and you'll be amazed at the height of the old men who congregate in the village centres outside shops!! Not all are that short and some are 5'6-5'9" but it is rare to see an older guy over 5'10" in southern Italy! Some of the 6'4"-6'5" Italian footballers like Luca Toni must feel like Bill Walton in the south!

Rob do you think he looks shorter than Scorsese in Parker photo? He looks crazy short in it and look at his footwear, looks rather clumpy and suspicious, although Scorsese also looks like he could be packing Simon Cowell like stacks into his shoes and resorting to the old bootleg Cowell tricks to cover them up in that photo. Pesci looks even shorter than this in that photo.He does look 5'3" in Goodfellas. been a while since I saw Casino but I'll give it a run tomorrow and see what I think.
[Editor Rob: I think he is a bit taller, but he could very well be a guy at times wearing elevator shoes...I'd be surprised if he didn't.]
Arch Stanton says on 6/Oct/13
Does look as low as 5'3" in Goodfellas. His personality in that film reminds me of a couple of short guys I've met in clubs!
Arch Stanton says on 23/Sep/13
De Niro looks 5-5.5 inches taller in Raging Bull. I think he looks more 5 ft 4 than 5 ft 3 in comparison.
Arch Stanton says on 23/Sep/13
Rob can you add Raging Bull, its without a doubt his most acclaimed film.
Arch Stanton says on 23/Sep/13
Looks 5'4" ish in Raging Bull.

Could Pesci have been 5'2.75" (159 cm), Schneider 5'3.5" (in comparison to 5'7 Martin Lawrence)? Also Pesci did look a little more than a foot shorter than Daniel Stern in Home Alone.

Obviously Pesci will have lost at least a bit at his age, so he could easily be closer to 5'2 now, but no need for a peak height listing since he isn't all that active now and is more one of those legendary actors.
cd says on 27/May/13
I'm thinking 161-162cm peak, 159-160cm now.
mikec33 says on 23/Dec/12
hes def 5'4"
Parker says on 26/Aug/12
Not much between Scorcese, Pesci and Michael J Fox. 5'3-5'4 listings are correct.
