This is quite accurate
Andrea said on 8/Sep/16
Yeah, he looks just a bit taller than LaRose in the few scenes they have together, not even 2 inches...
I remember he had some scenes with Tony Almeida in 24 and i really struggled to see him even 6'1 tall (and that was around 7 years ago, so you'd expect some more loss by now)!
Do you think 6'0.5 is possible today or you're sure he'd manage to stand tall and measure over 6'1, even today?
Again, he really doesn't look much different than Liev on the show at times, maybe a couple of cms shorter is possible but more? Mmm...
Editor Rob: he might look 184 at times, but can he still stretch up for a 6ft 1 range measurement? It can be harder to tell sometimes with elderly gentleman.
Andrea said on 7/Sep/16
Rob, what's the lowest you can see him today? I can't say anything about his peak, but i've seen him in 24 and more recently in Ray Donovan...
As i said some months ago, i honestly would have said 6'1 at most in 24! Look at him with Mark Walhberg: Click Here
Does he really look over 6'0.5 range there? I can see how his posture isn't the best posture at times but even in Ray D he doesn't look a big 6'2 guy, to me!
At the same time, he really doesn't look much shorter than guys like Liev on the show... He's a tricky guy! He actually had a couple of scenes with an actor you met, J. LaRose, and he looked just slightly taller than him! (Btw, you have him at 5'11 but he looks more 5'10 with you)... In fact, i thought that guy was at least a big 6'!
Here is a mugshot from the last season: Click Here
Editor Rob: I think he might not measure 6ft 2 today, having a brief look I could see him look anywhere from over 6ft to 6ft 1.5. If he didn't look more than 2 inches taller than La Rose then I'd say he could be 6ft 1 max today then.

I like his positive thinking towards his height.. C'mon can you be a little more insecure next time. I bet he wouldn't have said that if he had the right looks.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jun/16
Rob, are you sure 6ft3 peak isn't more reasonable?


He's 77 and still looks 6ft2 minimum on Ray Donavon. Can look the same height as Liev and even taller at times!
Editor Rob: I haven't ruled out that possibility.
Dmeyer said on 12/May/16
Rob hé looks over 2in taller than cage
jajamen said on 6/May/16
Rob, why isnt Varsity Blues there. He was best known as the Arrogant coach.
charlie said on 30/Mar/16
He wore cowboy boots a lot especially in Midnight Cowboy. Thing he he looked tall and in boots he would of been 6' 5 inches. His height appeared 5 inches taller than many females. Many females at 5'3" so I will say in Midnight Cowboy he looked 5' 10"if he was flat footed. I will say he looked at most 5' 10 inches. Now probably 5' 9". Clint Eastwood has his height very high too of course never forget his traditional Footwear (Boots) Boots can give the appearance of a very tall person. Another thing He looked the same height as Burt Reynolds in Deliverance and Burt was 5 foot 10 inches.
Tony said on 8/Jan/16
I think he was around 6'4 in midnight cowboy, judging by how he towered over everyone else in new york city.
Andrea said on 1/Jan/16
He didn't look over 6'1 in 24... And i'm talking about 2009-2010!
Judd ISR said on 28/Dec/15
Grizz I've no doubt he was under 6'2.5" at peak (that is the best mark for him).
Today he might be a fraction under 6'2", but I doubt he's under 6'1.5"...
He might be as Morgan Freeman: peak at 6'2.5" and today 6'1.5-1.75"...

grizz said on 26/Dec/15
Rob,is it really possible he didn't lose a whole inch till the age of 77?
That's really impressive if true! Usually tall guys lose more height than shorter ones.
Freeman is the only tall one I can think of that didn't lose an inch with 70+years.
Editor Rob: by his 70's he has lost height, a gradual loss, he didn't seem to lose that much by around 70 though.
ebo said on 14/Nov/15
legit 6'2, slouches a lot too, i think hes a strong 6'2 still
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Sep/15
He actually does look pretty close to Schreiber in recent pictures.
Yati said on 25/Aug/15
Probably closer to 6' 2.5" if Liv Shreiber is 6' 2.75" He stands eye-to-eye and nose-to-nose with Liv Shreiber.

Rampage 6'3" in his boots for sure during those day's looks alomost 5 inches taller than 5'9" scott baio,
Mike said on 28/Jun/15
186-187 today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/15
190cm peak
188cm today
Judd said on 6/Apr/15
IMO he was 6'2.5" for sure at peak. Today he could be 6'1.75", but not a full 6'2" guy if not he does look taller than 6'1.25-1.5" Will Smith, while they did look same height!
joe 193cm night said on 6/Apr/15
Peak 6´2.75(190)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Apr/15
Rob, is 6ft3 peak possible?

He really does appear it in Midnight Cowboy and Deliverance.
[Editor Rob: over 6ft 2, near 6ft 3 isn't impossible, it is what he claimed, but any guy in 6ft 2.5-2.75 range would probably round up.]
cole said on 20/Feb/15
@Editor Rob: Think 6'2.75 is fair for his peak since he claimed 6'3? He's 76 years old now and has looked 6'2 flat for the better part of a decade, looks like he could even be dipping a touch below 6'2 on Ray Donovan, but his posture isn't great.
Sam said on 29/Oct/14
Rob, could you add these to his credits?: Catch-22, Coming Home, The Champ, Runaway Train, Heat, Mission: Impossible and Anaconda.
[Editor Rob: I also found he did claim 6ft 3 as his height.]
Sam said on 14/Oct/14
Here's a book on boxing in film that states Voight was "six feet three inches tall and 190 pounds".

TJE said on 21/Jul/14
He looked at least 2 inches shorter than Liev Schreiber on Ray Donovan. If he straightened up, I could see 187 at the most.
Tony said on 28/Jun/14
I met him at the Whitaker Wellness Center in Newport Beach, CA about two years ago. He was easily 6'3" - 6"4" tall. He appears inordinately tall and 6'2" tall men don't give that impression. They appear tall, but not inordinately so.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Apr/14
That's odd he looked 6'1" range max next to Wahlberg recently.Click Here
Sam said on 10/Mar/14
Next to Liev Schreiber, he looks barely shorter recently. He's got good posture and seems to have lost barely any height.
steve said on 28/Feb/14
saw him at lax airport last month tall guy about 6ft2 was 6 ft 3 in his prime tall guy was on a flight to cancun had a pair of penny loafers on im 6 ft 2 myself
Dejavu said on 6/Feb/14
He is a strong 2 inches taller than Edward Norton.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Dec/13
"Peak height was 6ft 2.75in (190cm)"

He did look near 6ft4 in Midnight Cowboy with boots maybe. The 6ft5 listings are complete bull.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Oct/13
Odd but Burt Reynolds can look only a bit shorter in Deliverance, I'd guess Reynolds was wearing lifts even on a river!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Sep/13
May have been 6ft3
Brad said on 14/Sep/13
I've stood and walked next to him and he's taller than me (this was about 5 years ago). I'm 6' 2.5"
Sam said on 10/Jul/13
Rob, would you add the 6'2"-6'3" self-description from Entertainment Weekly in an Oscar retrospective? I don't have a link on this one.
[Editor Rob: I'd really need to see it or find it]
Dmeyer said on 19/Mar/13
Rob this Guy didnt lose much

Lou Ferrigino WAS 6'4.5" OR 6'5" NOT 6'3". Voight could easily be 6'2.5".

6ft 1.25 today, 6ft 2.5 peak.
LAN Jiao said on 10/Nov/11
lou ferrigino might be 6'2.5 now. voight look 6'0.5-6'0.75
Johno said on 27/Oct/11
Click Here

Heres voight, in a nice body shot with the 6'3 listed lou ferrigino. As you can see voight looks 2 inches or slightly more shorter then him. I doesn't appear that voight has his cowboy boots on.

Lou ferrigino 6'3
voight 6'1 (Could be closer to 6'0.5 if lou were to stand up right)

For voight to be 6'1, his measurement would have to be taken from the very top of his hair !!! ie 5 inches.........

I see a 5'8 man with a 6'0 or so guy there.

Excellent picture mamun. This will destory the 6'0 nicholas cage myth and inturn, the 6'0 travolta myth both of these men are a 5'10 currently. Travolta could of lost some height especially at his current weight

Voight 6'0 - 6'0.5
cage 5'10-5-10.5
travola a flat 5'10

Travolta a flat 5'10"? That makes Princess Diana 5'7" absolute max and Prince Charles 5'6".
____________________________________________________________________________

Listen shaun, are you trying to insinuate travolta is 4 inches taller then charles ?

Click Here

Are you and people like you, trying to insinutate that travolta was 3 inches taller then diana ie 6'1? And that diana was taller then charles?

Click Here
Click Here
Click Here

Diana was never taller then charles, never, N-E-V-E-R and travolta never had diana by 3 inches. If anything, i believed charles edged diana, maybe upto 0.75 inches. The lowest, charles was the same height. PLEASE PEOPLE, stop this diana taller then charles nonsense. Its universal comments and beliefs like this that make very cynical. People like you shaun, probably dnt challenge the status quo and i would not trust you to give fair heights. My heights are way off from listed heights, but thats how i view it and i will continue to provide evidence.

Notice, how travolta hardly has an inch on charles, 0.5 inches most likely, how can this man be 6'0, let alone close to 6'1?

The man is and i still maintain, somewhere between 5'10.5 - 5'11.

Voight 6'1
Travolta 5'10.5 - 5'11
Charles ( Same height as diana, or a bit taller )
Diana ( Was same height as charles, if anything, shorter. What difference is there between her listed height, her perceived height and actually tape measured height is, i cannot pinpoint)

wrong johno. in picture John Voight came not more than 5'11.5 , but in full frame he is a solid 6'1 guy with his 6'1 son James Haven. at peak i doubt he is 6'2.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

On closer inspection, i believe voight would be 6'1 if he were to stand straight, i will give him that,

I have seen upgraded travolta and cage's height.

Voight 6'1
travolta 5'10.5 - 5'11
cage 5'10.5 - 5'11

Note, these estimates are still lower then what is attributed to them

Since you cannot see the footwear either man is wearing, every comment here is simply dumb.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 25/Aug/11
in the pic he looks 185! He needs a downgrade!
johno said on 19/Aug/11
I dnt think any of my links will ever work :S
johno said on 17/Aug/11
Click Here shot of keach and voight, the difference is less apparent. For some reason, by previous links did not work. Again, voight is cowboy heels. He also has a nice semi-perm. Keach has not got a shallow head under that hat. Voight is leaning over keach thus increasing his own height. Posture isn't excellent for both parties. Keach can also be 5'10.5 Keach 5'10.5 - 5'11 voight 6'0.5 - 6'0.75
johno said on 17/Aug/11
I like to add once more! Babbling on a bit but keach can also look 5'10.5 next to rob. Drawing lines between robs head and keachs, indicates a 2.5inch but i'll stick with 5'11 So taking all these factors into account, ie picture with mamun, leach with voight (and his fab pair of cowboy boots!) and keach also possibly appearing 5'10.5 with rob - I would put voight at 6'0.5 deadon voight 6'0.5
johno said on 17/Aug/11
Sorry before i forget, heres the nice cowboy boots voight was wearing that day.. Click Here was meant to add this to discussion where i believe the actual difference between keach and voight is less then 2 inches rather then the near 3 inches it first appears. Either way, to derive voights height from comparing him to keach who you then compare to rob is less accurate then say, comparing the party in question with mamun straight up. If rob directly stood with voight that would be quite interestng but alot of things are lost in translation when you do it indirectly Voight 6'0.5- 6'0.75
johno said on 17/Aug/11
I don't know whether my previous post went throught or not since my laptop battery conked out but anyway let me reiterae... Mamun is leaning back like i said, his left side is leaning back and so is head slightly tilted. Voights midrift is inline with mamuns. Its only voights shoulders which are behind mamun, obviously grasping and a very humble gesture it is to!! Its not a simple case of one man standing straight infront of another man and even then, a reliable estimate can be made but certainly not one where the margin of error is 1 inch. 5 inches for me is, at the very top of voights hair and mamuns head Mamun 5'8.25 voight 6'0.5-6'0.75 Mamun 5'8.25 voight 6'0.5- 6'0.75
johno said on 17/Aug/11
With mamun being forward, well like i said, he is also losing height leaning backwards, with his head slightly tilted to his left side corner. This is not the simple case of where one man is standing straight in front of the other, where a reliable height estimate can still be made but, of the man standing in front also having his left side leaning back. Voights mid-area is inline with mamuns, its only his shoulder that are behind mamuns with his arm over him. An extremely friendly and humble gesture. 5 inches for me is just a tiny bit above where voights hair ends, ie the grey part. Mamun 5'8.25 voight 6'0.5 - 6'0.75
johno said on 17/Aug/11
Don't it mention mamun. Like i said, a good money shot with a semi-A-lister, which are very difficult to get hold of especially when you got them off guard as opposed to fan signings where they could wear suspect footwear or try to appear taller - LOL i know i would !!! Anyway.... Keach looks deadon 5'11 with rob. I think the pictures your talking about belong to the same set as this one... Click Here is a classic example, where by from a distance one appears to be towering another man but on closer inspection and knowing the shape of keach's heads and taking into account of voights exceptionally groomed hair, a gd set of hair mind you but non the less taking that into account. The difference seems towards 2 inches, about the size of my index finger. However, voight obviously has keach in a headlock and thus, his right side is tilted upwards increasing his height whilest simultaneously reducing leach's height, pushing his neck and head slightly forwards The difference inturn, would not be 2 inches. I'm going to eliminate 6'0 as a possibility and upgrade it to a 6'0.5, quite possibly 6'0.75 although, i hate dealing with quarter fractions Leach 5'11 voight 6'0.5 - 6'0.75 i think thats fair
Vegas said on 17/Aug/11
johno did you take into account mamun being closer to the camera...

btw did you not look at that link rob posted of voight standing next to stacy keach last year (august 2010) Click Here keach and rob Click Here
[Editor Rob: yeah, if he can have 4 inches on Keach I doubt Keach has dramatically shrunk nearly 2 inches more in 4 years since I saw him...]

With Mamum he look 6-0 even but Mamum is a bit closer to the camera so in reality Jon is more 6-1 than 6-0.

Sasha said on 30/Jul/11
I post my calculations for Mamun's ask.
The part of Jon, which got into a photo, has 375 pixels by height. He has near 90cm between the lowest part of the photo and the top of the head (measured on myself, I have nearly the same sizes). So 1 pixel is approximately 0.24cm. Jon has 43 pixels over Mamun. So his is taler by 10.32cm. That's why he is near 183.7cm (or 6'0.3").
Here is the link to the photo with pixel measuring:

looks 6'1.5 (187cm) with Mamun. probably 6'2 if he stood better.

jon voight looking 182ish with mamun here , judge by his 6ft1 son compared they look identical in height. so his 6ft1. 6ft3 claim was kind of actor inflating height.

I agree with Mamun he does not look 6'2 but that is only cause he is not standing at his tallest. 188cm for sure if he stood with Super.

In "Mission Impossible" looks not less than 6" taller than Cuise. I guess he´s 6´2", considering Cruise´s lifts.

Varsity Blues was on the other night and he looked roughly the same height as Paul Walker(6ft2) maybe a bit taller, and at least 2-3 inches taller than James Vanderbeek. In one scene though he looked to have almost 4 inches or more on Vanderbeek, who's listed at 6ft but to me looks more like 5ft10/5ft11. 6ft2.5 or a flat 6ft2 sounds right for Voight! Maybe 6ft3 in his youth, but I don't think 6ft4 by any means!

In National Treasure, in the scene towards the end when they enter the church, he looks slightly taller than Nicolas Cage, i would say 1 and 1/2 inch, maybe 2 but not more; i do believe he was taller than 6 3 at his peak; if Cage is 6 feet he should now be around 6 2'' top.

I think Voight was between 6'3 amd 6'4 at his peak.
dmeyer said on 25/Feb/07
you should give him peak height 6 ft 4

He looked so tall in Midnight Cowboy, but then he was with Dustin Hoffman most of the time, and even Tom Cruise looks tall next to him.

a photo of John Voigt standing next to Liam Stone (6ft) he looked at least four to five inches taller than Stone, who is not a small guy.
Height of shoes for both actors are unknown.. the photo is in the photogallery at Click Here

IF both actors are wearing the same shoes then Jon Voight is at least 6ft 5in.

He looked shorter than Liev Schreiber in The Manchurian Candidate. Schreiber seemed to have almost 2 inches on Voight. The difference between Schreiber and Denzel Washington in that movie was similar. I believe Schreiber is about 6'3"...I think it's possible that Voight doesn't have the best posture and is starting to shrink.

Jon Voight is for me 6'4" (much above 6'2") but he's stooping because he believes such a height is unsuitable for an actor. I saw him on TV standing next to a reporter (about 6' or 6'1") and he was much taller. He was also asked how he managed to play Pope, who was much shorter, and he showed how he was stoopong and shrinking :)

1979 May Photoplay magazine described him "six foot three"

He looked pretty tall in Anaconda. He made Owen Wilson seem like a 5'9" guy, just like I thought he was.
Gramps said on 4/Dec/05
He just looked 6'5" next to Dustin Hoffman (Midnight Cowboy)! ;-)
Peter said on 4/Dec/05
I read he was 6'5". Did he shrink?
=rod said on 17/Nov/05
"6,3" seems to be right !!
sam said on 11/Aug/05
He described himself as having stood about 6'3" in the early 1970s.

I saw him a time ago and he looked 6'2 in my eyes.

I just saw him on Entertainment Tonight and to my surprise he and Will Smith were about the same height. Originally thought he was only around the 6 ft mark since he and Burt Reynolds look about the same height in Deliverence.
Mr. R said on 14/Apr/05
I met him on Oscar night twice, and he seemed just over 6'1". We spoke for awhile. He is definitely not as tall as he is listed here.
