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!

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.]

@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.

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.]

Here's a book on boxing in film that states Voight was "six feet three inches tall and 190 pounds".

He looked at least 2 inches shorter than Liev Schreiber on Ray Donovan. If he straightened up, I could see 187 at the most.

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.

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.

He is a strong 2 inches taller than Edward Norton.

"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

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