184-185cm in his 20s is possible.
Judd says on 18/Oct/14
i think 6'0.25" for peak height is fair, while today he does look in the 5'11-11.5" range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 30/Sep/14
Rob, you need to add Saturday Night Fever to the line above
Andrea says on 19/Sep/14
Rob, how much difference you see in this vid?

It's from 2004, so he should have been "at his peak"...
Brett says on 11/Sep/14
Hi rob,

Long time :)

I met travolta a few months ago through a mutual friend... he actually not as tall as I thought he would be. I'm guessing if I'm 185-186cm, hes maybe 181ish...your current height could be plausible :)

Keep well!
[Editor Rob: Travolta was I think a comfortable six footer till last decade, which he's struggle and looks 5ft 11-11.5 range a lot of time.]

Can't see Travolta less than 6'0 even today he still has a solid height
MarkyMark says on 24/Jun/14
I agree with Jake, Saturday Night Fever should be added in the description it's a classic movie !
Dmeyer says on 22/Jun/14
Travolta peak is 183cm or Max weak 184cm today somewere 5'11-11.5
mike says on 21/Jun/14
John Travolta's height is 6ft 0in (183 cm)
Peak height was 6ft 0.75in (185 cm)
at worst and best today is between 182-184 and at peak 184-186.
Dmeyer says on 21/Jun/14
I agree filmmaker peak 183/183.5 today 181cm 9 yrs ago he was Still near 183cm when i met him
mike says on 19/Jun/14
FilmMaker reply: nah don't think he's just 5ft 11.25. i agree with Rampage at worst 5ft 11.75 and at highest 6ft 0.5. today, so 6ft 0 on the nose today and maybe 6ft 0.5-.75 peak.
FilmMaker says on 18/Jun/14
to Dmeyer: I think when he was young he rarely went under 6'...you can choose if it's better 6' or 6'0.25.
Today he looks around 5'11-5'11.25.
mike says on 17/Jun/14
184-185 peak and maybe 186 out of bed.
Dmeyer says on 17/Jun/14
Looks a solid 2in under Tarantino today 6'0.25 peak 5'11-11,25 now thé Guy l'ost noticable
mike says on 9/Jun/14
i think 6ft 0.5 peak and 6ft flat today is better.
Seahawksfan 187-188 CM. says on 20/Apr/14
IMDB does as well, and they had him listed at 6 feet last year. Samuel Jackson could actually have been 6'2.25"-6'2.5" to be fair, and while 6'2" is unreasonable for his peak, so is a solid 6 feet. My guess was that he was just a fraction above 6'1" out of bed (maybe 6'1.25"/186 CM on a good day with great posture?), and likely 6'0.5-6'0.75" during the day.
PeteClone says on 13/Apr/14
This seems right, thinking back to the quote in Face/Off that the height difference between him and Nicolas Cage was "negligible". Incidentally, google lists him as 6'2. Yeah, right.
mike321 says on 9/Apr/14
Anything over 6 feet is laughable. Remember the elevator scene in pulp fiction where he is stood next to 6'2 samuel l jackson? He got dwarfed by a considerable amount. 180cm max.
James B says on 7/Apr/14
Shorter than Beckham rob?

[Editor Rob: doesn't look shorter, could be very close to 5ft 11 though]
Holly says on 4/Apr/14
Met him in Brooklyn, 1976, when he was playing Manero in "Saturday Night Fever".
I spoke with him for few minutes. He was very slim and quite tall.
I had the impression he was as tall as me (6') maybe a little under but with the boots he gained almost 2".
Rey says on 22/Mar/14
Travolta was never 6'1". At his best, 6'.25" on his thin frame at the time made him look taller.
viktor says on 28/Feb/14
john travolta is 180 and i saw broken arrow with christian slater who is 173 or 174 cm
viktor says on 28/Feb/14

WhiteWolf809 1.85 6.1 says on 23/Feb/14
I think travolta was his peak height 6.0.25 because this is how he look on face off next to 6.0 183 nicolas cage
176,2Tunman says on 7/Feb/14
Possibly a little less than 1in difference between him and Uma in Pulp Fiction.Uma is around 5'11.25-11.5 so maybe a flat 6' at peak and 5'11.5 today would fit him better.

at the madame tussauds wax museum in NYC he looked 6,2" to me, does anybody agree that they made the wax figure much taller? I'm a solid 5,11" and he looked almost 10 cm taller
Seahawksfan says on 5/Jan/14
If you watched Grease, he looked at least 6'1" in his peak and was identical with the guy who played Rizzo who I believe is 6'1.25". Does anybody else believe that he might've been 6'1" in his peak?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Jan/14
Rob, is a full 6ft0.5 peak possible?
[Editor Rob: not impossible, I mean a strong 6ft in 20-30's]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Dec/13
Somewhere between 6ft and 6ft1 barefoot at peak is arguable for Travolta. But, in a pair of disco shoes you're looking at least 6ft2 if not 6ft3. That's where all of those garbage listings came from I'd say.
Rude says on 11/Nov/13
He still seems like a 6 footer to me almost as tall as Bradly Cooper less than an inch difference.He's one inch shorter than Benicio Del Toro.
Silent d says on 3/Nov/13
He can't be shorter than 180cm. 180cm seems about right.
Seahawksfan says on 13/Oct/13
Here he is with 6'0 Nicholas Cage

Click Here

He's around 5'11-6'0 today, and I would give him 6'1 in his peek.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Oct/13
He actually gave a 6ft3 impression in Saturday Night Fever and Staying Alive. He was wearing substantial heels and was cast opposite short actresses though.

Solid 6ft0.5/184cm peak and about 6ft flat now, maybe a fraction under at worst.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 22/Sep/13
He looked 6ft1-2 in Pulp Fiction during the diner scene
Rusty says on 18/Sep/13
Im watching pulp fiction right now and he seems to have over an inch on uma thurman
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 31/Aug/13
Travolta looked a solid 6"0.5", possibly a weak 6"1" in his youth like in Saturday Night Live, Grease, Welcome Back Kotter and Urban Cowboy. I'd be surprised if he's dropped a full inch.

"Peak height was 6ft 0.5in (184cm)"
"John Travolta's height is 6ft 0in (183cm)"

Maybe 5"11.75" but that's still pretty good for 59
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 30/Aug/13
In all honesty, I just can't see this guy over 5'10.5". Here he is with 5'9" listed Jonathan Rhys Meyers:
Click Here
Here is Travolta with 6'0.5" listed Bradley Cooper:
Click Here
Personally I don't buy Cooper at 6'0.5", and even if he is 6'0.5", that still makes Travolta 5'10.5" at the absolute MAX.
He was also shorter than 5'10.75" Nicolas Cage in Face/Off and shorter than the late 6' James Gandolfini (may he RIP).

John Travolta 5'10.5" (179cm) at the absolute MAX.
Balrog says on 24/Aug/13
Rob you think he lost 2cm when he's not even 60? Maybe he was 6'0" flat at peak.
[Editor Rob: I believe his 'little over' six foot claim, and now a little under, some guys will shift height by 50's]
Len says on 1/Aug/13
6'0" is what he looks. Am surprised he tries to claim 6'2" elsewhere.
Dmeyer says on 17/Jul/13
Met him 8 years ago he was aleast 5'11.5 maybe 6'0 probably l'ost height from 8 years ago , was similar to m'y height but i had cm more shoe
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 16/Jul/13
5ft11 is rubbish for Travolta even today. That's Uma Thurman and Bruce Willis territory. He was taller than both of them back in 1994 and recently. He's 5ft11.75(182cm) at worst today.

Probably a solid 6ft0.5(184cm) as a young man. At that height you can get guessed at 6ft2.
GUK says on 29/Jun/13
Same Height as David Beckham possibly slightly shorter, so this listing seems about right
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 26/Jun/13
I'm almost certain that a fan once asked him
how tall he was and he stated 6"2".
Brah says on 26/Jun/13
HLN is a liar. In the DiCaprio board, you said you met Travolta and he is 5'8". Now, you say here "your friend" met him.
HLN says on 5/Jun/13
PFFFT! My close friend does work on the homes for all the celebs, I'm not going to say what kind of work so theres no risk of harm coming to him because this is such a huge fib, the guy must sue everyone who tells the truth. My friend is solid 5'10'' and Travolta was shorter with lifts. I'm also a solid 5'10" and until now I thought I was stretching it saying 5'11'', turns out in hollywood height I'm 6'5''. thanks for the laugh.
teej says on 4/Jun/13
Legit 6ft in his early days, dont know about now
talker says on 20/May/13
i've stood next to John in the early 80's in NYC,i'm 6'1" and he was a little shorter than me,i'd say 6' back then.
lenad is sexy says on 11/Apr/13
I think this listing is pretty accurate
lenad is sexy says on 29/Mar/13
One thing he really doesnt look is the 6'2 he gets listed at
duhdocduh says on 15/Mar/13
i've hugged the guy. lovely dude but i once was 6'[ before gravity and 6 decades] and he was notably shorter.
not that there's anything wrong with that
Dmeyer says on 9/Feb/13
Almost 60 2cm loss is possible
FACE says on 5/Feb/13
Strong 6'0.25 (184 cm) Peak
Strong 5'11.25 (181 cm) Now
FACE says on 5/Feb/13

Balrog says on 29/Jan/13
I agree with Dmeyer. Lately Travolta looks 5'11'' range. At peak I could buy 6 feet.
Sasha says on 26/Jan/13
In Pulp Fiction barefoot dance scene John looked 1.5"-2" inches taller than Uma Thurman, who is at least 5'11". So John could be estimated as 6'0.5"-6'1" that time.
Fakhrul Islam says on 22/Jan/13
for some reason in begigining of face off him and nicholas cage poiting gun at each other cage was taller by about 1/2 inch and cage is meant to be 6 ft might be footwear, but not sure.
filmfan says on 20/Jan/13
Over 6ft anyway so probably is honest about his own height. Ernest Borgnine in his autobiography describes a young Travolta as 6'2'' from when they worked together in the 70s. Don't know if he was quite this but he is a tall man.
matt789 says on 16/Jan/13
peak i wuld say was 6ft0.25 and nowadays more around 5ft11.5
Hew says on 28/Dec/12
Looks a slight bit under 6ft nowadays. Def 6'0.5/6'0.75 at peak.
dmeyer says on 19/Dec/12
i think there is more of a chance denzel is near 6 ft today like 5 ft 11.75 but john is no way over 5 ft 11.5
bodwaya says on 19/Dec/12
in get shorty he was only 3 inches shorter then delridey who is 6 foot 4 6 foot 1 sounds right plus he was 2 inches taller then 5 foot 11 willis.lastly only 1 inch shorter then 6 foot 2 willism hurt . 6 foot 1 on the dot
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Dec/12
Identical to Denzel Washington.
Both 6ft0.5(184cm) peak and 6ft flat today
DanMan says on 14/Dec/12
Actually, I mean Samuel L. Jackson. Sorry, what is wrong with me lmao.
DanMan says on 14/Dec/12
Wow, I meant to post that in Morgan Freeman's page.
DanMan says on 7/Dec/12
More like 6'1".

The owner of the shop I frequent here in FL, lives near him and has met he and his family numerous times. She said he is not nearly as tall as he appears on screen. Maybe he doesn't wear his lifts when he hangs out locally.
Dmeyer says on 25/Nov/12
Rob looking at him near jackman lately and 184-185 cooper 175 meyers hé dosnt look a mm taller than 5'11.5 today With a chance of 181cm at peak 183cm not 6'0.25 to me 1-2cm loss by near 60 is possible
[Editor Rob: I think peak he did have chance of little over 6 foot and maybe today he is just 5ft 11.5, although sometimes some men can muster an extra little bit when it comes to measuring]
Arch Stanton says on 11/Nov/12
Dmeyer says on 3/Sep/12
Some site say at his heaviest. 250-300 pounds i think more 240-245 and sometimes go down to 215

Agreed, you've got a good sense for heights and weights Dmeyer.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 24/Oct/12
I doubt he's under 6ft...even today.
Silent d says on 21/Oct/12
In pulp fiction which is an awesome movie 6cm shorter than samnuel l jackson and an inch and a bit taller than 180cm uma. 182cm now.
Dmeyer says on 21/Oct/12
I saw him enaught to say hé is under 6'1 and over 5'11 somwere 5'11.75-6'0.5 in 8 years ago
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Oct/12
Hes probably wears lifts, even if he does claim to be just a little over 6ft. Those pictures from the 70s, 80s and 90s would fool anyone oblivious to this site into thinking that Travolta was 6ft2. I believed it at first. I'd also never bat an eyelid when I heard Bruce Willis being described as 6ft1
The Exorcist says on 6/Oct/12
He looks tall, but not too tall. 6'0" seems about right for him.
Silent d says on 1/Oct/12
I watched domestic disturbance the other night and he looked 6 foot 1. In savages he looks about the 6 foot mark but i think 182cm is right on the money now. The actors in the savages are sorta tall except for salma hayek. Taylor kitsch and aaron johnson are 180cm, blake lively 173cm and benicio del toro about 189cm. I remembered he was taller than kitsch and johnson.
rkc_cat says on 24/Sep/12
Just saw him on TV at an award show, next to Benicio del Toro. He consistantly looked almost 3" shorter than him, so not much over 5'11" flat for Travolta nowadays. Definitely 180-181 cm in my opinion.
FACE says on 4/Sep/12
183cm peak
181cm now
Dmeyer says on 3/Sep/12

Sometimes hé seems 200-210 but has been 220 easy
Dmeyer says on 3/Sep/12
Dont look more than 5 in taller than 5'6 robin williiams hé CAN look 180-1cm alot lately
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Sep/12
I doubt he's less than 6ft even today. Has held is own with 6ft2 range guys in the past.
And yeah looked taller than an in-heels Lady Diana. Probably 6ft1+ in shoes.
Ben says on 1/Sep/12
John danced with 5'10'' Princess Di who worn with high heels yet john was still taller. John must've been 6 feet.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Aug/12
The dancing shoes he wore in Saturday Night Fever definitely
boosted him closer to 6ft3. Likewise in Grease and Urban Cowboy
he looked fairly tall. Could easily have been mistaken as 6ft2.

But obviously he's always been a little shy of 6ft1 mark. He is
looking a shorter nowadays I'll admit.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Aug/12
Didn't look a lot shorter than Gene Hackman
in Get Shorty. If Hackman was 188cm still in
1995 than Travolta looked 185-186cm.
bodwaya says on 7/Aug/12
in lonely hearts he had 1 inch or 6 foot James Gandolfini so hes gott be 6 foot
matt789 says on 23/Jul/12
in the movie wild hogs he looked barley taller then william h macy and he's 5 foot 9 is it possibly that he is only 5 foot 10.5? and how much do u think he weighs?
Connor says on 12/Jun/12
John to me could still look maybe 183cm he could possibly be 182.5cm flat without shoes on what do you think Rob?
[Editor Rob: today he could have dipped a fraction shy of 6ft. Maybe with poor stance/posture he sometimes can look a bit more shorter than he is though.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Jun/12
Looked 6ft1/6ft2 beside
Vince Vaughn in Domestic Disturbance (2001)

Good to be back!

6'6" barefoot says on 8/Jun/12
I'm 17 and me and my father saw Travolta and his wife and dinner in L.A., very nice guy by the way. After dinner we took a picture and when I stood up he was surprised to see how tall I was compared to him. He said himself that he was 6'1" at age 17. I was substanitally taller than him by more than half a foot.

You claim to be the height of a lampost at a legit 6 ft 6 yet you were surprised to be much taller than him? LOL, at a barefoot 6 ft 6 you should expect to way taller than most men you ever meet.. Travolta looks a solid 6'.

Saw him walking in Clearwater on the causeway. He is definitely around 6" 2". He waved and smiled when he saw I recognized him. Helluva nice guy.
Dmeyer says on 25/Jan/12
At peak the Guy CAN look 183-4cm now looks 181-2cm
SIlent d says on 24/Jan/12
182cm. I can't see uma shorter than 180cm. 5 foot 10 is ridiculous. Like people claiming nicholas cage is 5 foot 10. Funny. Travolta owned robin williams in old dogs. There is more like 5 to 6 inches difference.
