Comment on the Height of John Stamos

There's no way he's shorter than Rebecca Romijn.

He looks tall-ish on Grandfathered. I could see him being up to 5'11.5
George F said on 29/Aug/15
Rob you had him at 5ft 11.5 once?
[Editor Rob: I think he started at that mark.]
Ray said on 21/Aug/15
Rob, he needs a downgrade. I met him in Iraqi at an mwr event. I am 69 inches in the morning and 68.5 inches day barefoot. I had military boots 1.5 heels. He had dress shoes that looked like they had 1 inch heels. He was about an inch shorter than me. Given I had .5 inch shoe advantage I say he's 5'9 at the absolute most.

i am 5-9.5 barefoot. i met him and talked to him. We were both wearing running shoes. Our eyes were level.

I know he has claimed 6' for years, but again, I think he's another classic case of a 5'10" guy who claims 6 ft. Scott Baio is listed here at 5'10", which I think is probably about right- and he and Stamos looked exactly the same height on an episode of "Full House" Baio guesstarred on. I remember this thinking it was odd since Stamos had always claimed 6', yet 5'10" Baio and he looked the same height. Also, case in point (I think it may have already been mentioned)- an episode of "Friends" Stamos guesstarred on, he looked about an inch shorter than 5'11" Matthew Perry. Again, thought was odd since I would've putt the two at about exactly the same height. 5'10", but with good posture, hair and shoes, he can pull off that 6 foot "look" easily.

5'10 is more accurate. Scott Grimes is listed 5'7.5 and he is not quite 3 inches shorter than this guy. 5'10.25 is a good listing too.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Sep/14
This would make sense since Saget isn't quite 6ft4
whatever said on 16/Sep/14
spot on. saw him in person and he was little taller than me in boots @ 5'10 (i was wearing boots too). 5'10 barefoot, can look 5'11" -6' depending on shoes

I met Stamos. We were both in running shoes.
I am 5-10. I looked at him level straight in the eye.
He is 5-10.

If Stamos is 5'10.5: then Dave Coulier would be 5'10" ... i really doubt coulier is 5'10" ..... 5'9" for Joey, 5'9.5" for Jesse. watch full house they are basically the same height
the shredder said on 7/Feb/14
Rob , What is your estimated on Dave Coulier? He gets listed 5'11 but looks 5'9.5 .
[Editor Rob: he can look a bit smaller than joh, he may be 5ft 10]
Hannah said on 2/Feb/14
Funny he's listed at 6'
FM said on 30/Jan/14
Plus, here is a profile pic with Zac Braff and John Stamos. If Braff is a 5'11.5 or 6', Stamos looks about an inch/inch an a half shorter (Braff is closer to the camera). Without taking their footwear into consideration, Stamos looks like he's just shy of 5'11":

I think this is spot on...

Here he is with Entourage's Kevin Dillon. They are not the same height - Stamos is taller:

avi said on 11/Jan/14
Saget didn't tower him right? what do you think the height difference is between them? 3.5-4 inches or a solid 4? I think Saget is 6'3 and Stamos a weak 5'11
Jak said on 10/Nov/13
He certainly looks close to 5'11" next to model Aileen Maria who is 6 feet tall.
IR said on 7/Nov/13
Charlie Sheen and John Stamos are about an inch taller and have bigger better hair than their co-stars
Jon Cryer and Dave Coulier.
IR said on 28/Sep/13
John Stamos 5' 11"
Dave Coulier 5' 10"
hurricane brat said on 16/Sep/13
Rob I have to disagree on this one. There was an episode of entourage with all of Stamos' scenes next to kevin dillon and adrian grenier (footwear visible). He looked identical to Dillon's height (listed 5'9 here) and definitely atleast an inch shorter than Grenier (listed 5'10.5 here)
Len said on 22/Jul/13
Stamos has always looked 5'9" at absolute most. I'm surprised he's been able to bamboozle so many.
Balrog said on 21/Jul/13
Perfect listing.
The Great One said on 10/Jul/13
he is 5'10
dave coulier is a typical candain male 5'8"
noob said on 2/Jul/13
Even accounting for angles and posture, this may need more discussion

5'10.5''. Vissibly shorter than Matthew Perry. I think Shane West edge out him by a little bit in ER.
SAK said on 15/Jan/13
Looked shorter then Matthew Perry. Stamos is 180cm. Perry is 182cm.
Len said on 10/Sep/12
This is all pretty funny. Stamos doesn't look even halfway tall. And in any picks with former wife Rebecca Romijn, she is TOWERING over him, even while she's slouching a bit or bending her knees so as to appear 'not tall'

There is the occasional pic where he seems almost as tall as her, but in full-body shots of same, he looks like he's wearing Don's (i.e. elevator shoes).

He's 5'8" or 5'9".
avi said on 4/Aug/12
ok even so Bob Saget had a solid 3 to 3.5 inches on him which puts Saget at about 6'3 flat if that.
Chris said on 26/Jan/12
In "the one with the donor" (Friends) he was shorther than Matthew Perry (5'11.25 listed here) so if Perry is a strong 5'11, Stamos is a strong 5'10 guy. 5'10.25 for him.
C said on 18/Aug/07
He never looked more than 3 inches shorter than the 6'4'' Bob Saget on Full House. If I take off an inch for possible shoe lifts, he would still be 6 feet tall. But then again, a friend of mine, who spotted him at an airport said that he was about my height (5'10''). I'm not sure what to believe.
Realme said on 13/Jun/07
When he was married to Rebecca Romijn who is 5'10.5, he always looked taller.
Josh said on 12/Jun/07
I thought he was 5'10 5'11 tops.
Sam said on 12/Jun/07
Well, let's see Saget is a solid 6'4 and stamos was exactly 3 inchs shorter. i'd say 6'0-6'1. 184cm.
glenn said on 12/Jun/07
you cant always judge by the pic.he was 5-11ish.rob has him correct.
Eve101 said on 11/Jun/07
NOOO WAYYY IN HELL is Stamos 5'11.5 in that picture with Glen! He looks a lot more 5'10!
Maya said on 11/Jun/07
No Danius, he's taller. He was married to a very tall lady and she never dwarfed him, although she used to wear heels (allright, so did he). But the point is that he's just under six feet).
Danius said on 10/Jun/07
He doesn't look 182....more like 178?...
glenn said on 10/Jun/07
rob has him exact.
Patrick said on 10/Jun/07
He looks 5'9", and wears boots, giving him the illusion of 6'.
bam said on 9/Jun/07
glenn how tall was he? He looks 5'11 in your picture.
G-unit said on 9/Jun/07
holy ****! it's him, haven't seen him on screen since the 90's. On screen (full house) I remember him rather short
Viper said on 7/Jun/07
I agree with you RZA, lol.
RZA said on 6/Jun/07
Full House was great but I still think that these guys who have Olsen twins fetishes need some counseling. That's weird and I don't hate but those girls aren't cute.

"Gawker Stalker" sighting, 189 Chrystie St, May 20th, 2007 @ 3am: "Saw Uncle Jesse at the Box on Saturday night. Was wearing an "Army" hat. He looks the same,handsome, about 6'0... "
glenn said on 17/May/07
exact him.
sam said on 2/May/07
yeah he had great charisma on full house. Slick, cool character, exuted a sense of humor, and still good with the kids and family. Probably around 5'11-6ft.
Anonymous said on 2/Apr/07
Your right. He does look to be about the same height as dave Coulier, and you are also right about full house being a great show. I watch it every day. I think anyone who likes full house should type back.mention something about full house and about john's height so it won't be deleted.write something you like about full house!
Anonymous said on 31/Mar/07
I have never met him and I would like to, but in Full House (a great show) he looks to be about the same height as Dave coulier who is 5 ft 10.5 inches.
dmeyer said on 22/Mar/07
he looks very close to 185 cm eric dane could be 5'11.75 to 6'0 because dane realy is 185 cm he claims 6'0.75 and in person looks it when he wears low heeled puma looks 184 strong and when he wears 1.25 to 1.5 dress shoes lookes 6'1.25 so not less than 185 cm
MD said on 20/Jan/07
He was just on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and was Leno's height, if not .25"-.5" shorter. 5'11" looks to be the top of the scale with nothing less than 5'10.5".
Cantstop25 said on 19/Jan/07
He looked a little shorter than 5`11.5 perry. Either Perry is 6`0, or he is 5`11.
albi said on 30/Dec/06
Use Photoshop to draw a line approx the height of Saget and than resize it to match Stamos' height. With this technique, with Saget's height of 193cm and your point of view (posture, photo angle etc.) Stamos comes at 178-179. The angle of the photo makes height differences look smaller (very slightly, at least not bigger). I'm not commenting on other details so that everyone will stay happy with their own belief :)
Brad said on 23/Nov/06
Saw him on one of my sneaking on the Paramount lot in '86 adventures & at NAMM show '92. He's 5' 11". He's a huge Dennis Wilson fan, so am I. Dennis was a trip to meet.
Chris said on 9/Nov/06
He was on Jay Leno 2:nd of november 2006, they looked exactley the same height.
MD said on 29/Sep/06
Strange. He was just on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and at the end of the show was a cooking segment where he had John walk over to taste the food, and John didn't come up any further than than the very bottom of Conan's lip at the very most. It was definitely more than just a 4.5" difference. I was seeing nearly a 6" difference.
jayb said on 29/Sep/06
my sister worked with john stamos on a film that was shot by my house. i met him up close and he was taller than me. I stand around 5'10" and stamos was a good inch taller than me in normal dress shoes, which i too was wearing. he is definately taller than 5'9" otherwise id have been looking down on him and i wasnt. hes easily 5'11" in my opinion
Alex said on 27/Jun/06
Bob Saget is a legit 6'4 guy and Stamos is 4-4.5 inches shorter so 5'11.5-6'0 seems right.
GPM said on 21/Jun/06
My buddy's a bouncer, at a nightclub, and stands 5'10". He says that Stamos came up to him to ask a question, and Stamos was about two inchs shorter?
FilmDrummer said on 19/Feb/06
I met John Stamos when he was down at South Beach. I stand at 5'9" and the man was a little bit taller than me, but he is certainly no 6 foot. He was wearing regular dress shoes and so was I so there is no adjustment to be made. He looked to be 5'10" to 5"11", but even 5'11" seems a bit of a stretch, so this 5'11.5 height is about an inch taller than what he really is.
Anon said on 12/Nov/05
Actually, I worked with John and he is just under 6ft. Like it or not folks, he isn't lying about his height.
Magic Eye said on 13/Oct/05
I strongly belive that john's height isnt anywhere near 5'11.5 really, but a lil shorter, maybe 5'9.5/5'10.
someone who knows said on 14/Sep/05
It's just my username, like "Mr. Awesome", lol. Anyway, I have seen him several times, in person, and he is all of 6 ft.

from someone who knows said on 7/Aug/05
He is 6'0. ON "Full House", he was a few (approx. 3-4) inches shorter than Bob Saget yet about an inch taller than Dave Coulier. John has very thin limbs and sometimes is wardrobed in clothes that make him appear thicker but shortens him; white shoes with black pants, etc.

He did portray Albert "Blackie" Parrish on "General Hospital".
Mr. Awesome said on 8/Jul/05
I didn't put up a pic, Mr. R...I just speak from personal experience...and yes, Rob, the time is truly come to push Stamos back down to where u used to have far I see no convincing evidence to prove that he is so tall.
San said on 5/Jul/05
Mr.R, you maybe right when you say Stamos is 3" taller than Sinise. But tell me how he is taller than De Niro who is 5'9" tops (see pic with Sinise and De Niro). Sinise might be 5'6" actually and rounding up his height by 2 inches. Agreed...we don't know the kind of footwear Stamos and Banderas (boots as usual) are wearing in that pic. And, Stamos doesn't look like a 6-footer standing next to Bob Saget (6'3"). In Full House, Stamos used to wear boots to appear tall and yet he was considerably shorter than Saget. Editor Rob-Time to peg this guy back at 5'9"
Mr. R said on 5/Jul/05
Mr. Awesome, the problem with your Banderas pic, is that we cannot see the shoes. Antonio is well known for big heels, and if he is wearing high heels and Stamos isn't, the equation is screwed up.
Mr. R said on 5/Jul/05
San, I don't think you are estimating correctly. I blew up the pic with Sinise, and Stamos is almost 3 inches taller. 5'11" seems pretty close.
Mr. Awesome said on 2/Jul/05
Yes, Rob the guy has never been near six foot in his life...I would also put money on him wearing lifts with his former wife on many occassions... In all seriousness, I think that your initial height for Stamos was accurate.
Mr. Awesome said on 1/Jul/05
I have seen this guy in person, and I can definitely confirm that he is not a hair over 5'10'' (no pun intended)! In fact, he looked as if he was struggling with 5'9.5''

I can also compare him to Dave Coulier (Joey from Full house), who I have met twice. My uncle is an NHL official, and twice I attended the Celebrity All-Stars vs. Retired Philadelphia Flyers hockey game with him. Since I've met nearly every past and present Philadelphia Flyer numerous times, it was much more of a novelty to meet some of the celeb players. Coulier is 5'9'', not his listed 5'11''. Since he was close in height to Stamos in Full House, it's safe to assume that Stamos is 5'10'' at the very most.

This also ties into my theory that Bob Saget is just a fraction over 6'2'', but his scrawny rail-thin frame and tiny head allow him to pull off " 6'4'' "...but we'll save that one for another time...

[Editor Rob: maybe I didn't mix up this guy after all ;) The only thing that must be the case is that when he was with Rebecca Romijin he wore lifts...]
Anonymous said on 21/Apr/05
I met him at Disney World's Animal Kingdom recently. I'm 5'7 and he did not tower over me at all, we were nearly eye to eye. I would estimate that he's 5'9 min, 5'10 absolute max. Probably about 5'9.5. Some people I was with got picutres with him, which I'll take a look at once they get developed.
Smoke said on 5/Apr/05
Rob, the more pics I see of Stamos the more I start to believe that he indeed might be very close to his 6'0" listing in places. If Vardalos is truely 5'6", then judging by that pic, Stamos really does look 6'0". He really is kind of skinny and slight of build and I think that could be a factor in his maybe looking a little shorter than he truely is. I also saw a few scenes of his from Full House recently and I do agree that he does look quite short next to Sagat but he doesn't get dwarfed. Dave Coulier is listed at 5'11" and next to Brigitte Nilsen he really does look it, I noticed that on Full House Mr. Stamopoulous is just about an inch taller than Coulier.
BTW What's with the Greeks and lifts comment? Greeks aren't short people, they're average height, and their neighbours the Serbs are some of the tallest people in the world! :)

[Editor Rob: Yes Smoke, I got the Stamos guy mixed up with another bloke who I was adding to the site around his listing, whom I thought was 5ft 9, hence the dodgy listing. Stamos does indeed look 5ft 11-6ft. Re greek thing - nah man, that's just a sly on 'beware of Greeks bearing gifts' as Dimitriades really did look tall in earlier stuff I'd seen of him. Although there was some story about a famous Greek Emperor who wore lifts in his sandals...]
Smoke said on 4/Apr/05
Now I read the "beware of Greeks wearing lifts" part on one of the Greek celeb pages on this site and while I agree that it can apply to Stamos to a certain extent. I truely think that this guy is just about 6'0", here's a pic of him with fellow Greek, Nia Vardalos (5'6") and John really does look about 6 inches taller. And given that it is a foundation dinner and Nia is probably in heals, Stamos heals are most likely smaller than Nia's. I really think he's 182-183 cm.
Mr. R said on 12/Mar/05
I have never met Stamos, but I worked with Bob Saget on his sitcom a few years ago. Saget truly is 6'4" still. I spoke with him a lot.
Mr. Nice Guy said on 12/Mar/05
I've met him, I'm 6'0"-6'1" and there is no way he is same height as me, he is nowhere near. He was definately around 5'9"-5'10", not quite 175 cm but probably something like 177-178 cm just like his Full House co-star Dave Coulier...I would also say that 6'4" looks like a bit of a stretch for Bob Sagat, at his peak he might have been close to that height but nowadays he does look like he's dropped 1-2 cms.
