Rob, Neeson looks 194-195cm in these next to Clint Eastwood]

LOL. Some of you are comical. Those are the worst pics for comparing their heights.
Guy says on 18/Jul/14
190 people says they are 193, i think he os a solid 193 but he has a very bad posture so he looks like 190
James B says on 9/Jul/14
6'2 and 6'3 are not gigantic just tall.

Rob maybe give liam 6'4.5 peak? He did look 1 inch taller in the early 90s for sure
Realist says on 6/Jul/14
6'2 and above is not just tall its huge but not gigantic. 6'5 and above is hulk. 5'6 and below is small. 5'7 to 5'9 normal but shortish. 5'9.5 absolute average.
Lenad is sexy says on 25/Jun/14
there were times in batman begins he only looked like 2 inches taller than Christian bale but that's probably just camera angles
Rockstar says on 25/Jun/14
6'4 is correct.
6'4.5'' (194cm) says on 24/Jun/14
Imposible. He is 6'4 (193) now. Is Hunchback
mike says on 22/Jun/14
in his prime he can look 193-194.
nowadays 192-193.
James B says on 20/Jun/14
6ft3.5 is virtually very tall
unknown says on 18/Jun/14
i think he was very close to 6'4 when he played Oskar Schindler in Schindler's List (1993). Today he looks to me a strong 6'3. I would say:

Peak Height: 6'3.75 (1,92 m), with a small chance of full 6'4
Today: 6'3.25 (1,91 m)
john says on 13/Jun/14
is 6 foot 3.5 still tall rob
[Editor Rob: of course, it's still a pretty noticeable height in a crowd.]
Mr. R says on 10/Jun/14
Yeah, I met him maybe 6 years ago, and he was about 6-3. Very nice guy though.
berta says on 8/Jun/14
yeah he is 62 years old so he probably have lost 1 cm. but still think 194 peak.
The Exorcist says on 25/May/14
There's no doubting he was a really huge guy at his peak.

But looking at recent stuff, it's evident he's lost quite a bit. It's such a shame he has to get old...I wanted him to be 6'4" forever! lol
Dmeyer says on 25/May/14
6 ft 3.5 is wath hé looked when i met him
Arch Stanton says on 24/May/14
Good call.
Balrog says on 24/May/14
I think 6'4" at peak and now 6'3.5", I think it is time for a peak height.
[Editor Rob: I think with wear and tear and from his more action type roles in last 5 years, that could have pushed him a bit under the mark now.]
dmeyer says on 23/May/14
at 61 plus the fact that he is very tall , he could have lost noticable , back in 2005 i met him he was only 53 he looked about 4in on me 6 ft 3.5 maybe his posture wasnt great , so from i saw in person 191-193cm is possible 6 ft 3.25-4 in
James B says on 21/May/14
Arch Stanton says on 16/May/14
Yeah I think he's lost an inch nowadays, he's looking 6'3" tops next to Conan.

Sarcastic?
Arch Stanton says on 16/May/14
Yeah I think he's lost an inch nowadays, he's looking 6'3" tops next to Conan.
jtm says on 13/May/14
looks like my recent post didn't go through. i was looking at recent pictures and he surprisingly looks 6'2 range now. he is clearly shorter than Conan O' Brien and looks shorter than chris pratt but pratt was closer to the camera and had a footwear advantage. his current height is definitely no more than 6'3.
jtm says on 11/May/14
rob have you seen the recent pictures with conan o brien? neeson is clearly no more than 6'3 now.
IosuLM says on 22/Mar/14
in deadpool Liam seems high because he walks on tiptoes.
James B says on 12/Mar/14
Did not look that much taller than clint eastwood in deadpool
Lillo Thomas says on 2/Mar/14
Liam neesom was a bit taller than 6'4 in his peak 6'4.25. Today he is about 6'3.75 close to 6'4. He can look like 6'3 flat because of poor posture.
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m says on 27/Feb/14
Well a bit over 6ft 4in at peak is possible.
Balrog says on 3/Feb/14
6'4.25" peak. 6'3.75" now. Lost already half inch due bad posture, Neeson is a sloucher.
176,2Tunman says on 2/Feb/14
Solid 6'4-4.25 at peak.He really looked huge in Schindler's List definitely gives the impression of a 6'5, he towered Fiennes and dwarfed almost all the assistance.However many of them ranged from 5'4 to 5'6 which was probably intentional .Easy 7in taller than 5'9 Maggie Grace in Taken but today his posture started to get poorer and looks more 6'3 than 6'4 though I think he still could measure a good 6'3.5

@avi, The top down camera perspective cancel out the disadvantage of them appearing smaller, it help those who are standing further back to appear higher up the picture.

Better pic, but still a top down perspective: Click Here
OGAnon says on 29/Dec/13
194-195 cm peak
193-194 cm today

loose and often poor posture with this guy really gives the illusion of smaller stature. still a large man regardless.

Neeson stands with a relaxed posture in lots of his photos, often making him appear shorter, like 6'3" - 6'3.5" range. But I do believe he'd be a full 6'4" (or at least just shy of it) on a stadiometer.
Robert says on 24/Dec/13
Can't see him as 6 4 anymore, 6 3 today...

@Pleb says on 8/Dec/13
With 6ft6 Nonso Anozie, doesn't look the full 6ft4: Click Here

Nope! Liam is further from camera than Anozie so he'd have a disadvantage so he probably would look about 6'4 next to anozie. Could neeson be 6'3.75? Sure but no lower.
jordydecke says on 11/Dec/13
any pictures of Neeson with Eastwood (when he was younger)? I'd be intrigued to see how close they were in height.
Pleb says on 10/Dec/13
I'm seeing more than 2 inches, thats about the tallest you're going to see Neeson stand, Anozie kind of has his head lowered, tilted forward. Neeson has more hair to give him the illusion of extra height, when you're looking at the top of Anozie's head, that's practically the top of his head.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Dec/13
He actually looks 6ft4.5-6ft5 in that pic.

6'4.5 peak

current height a little up in the air due to perpetually poor posture, but very likely still 6'4 even in his early 60's.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Dec/13
Neeson, Hasselhoff, Goldblum and Seagal are all roughly the same age.

Rob, out of all of them who would you consider bringing down slightly or giving a peak height?
[Editor Rob: of course all being slap on 6ft 4 on the nose would be remarkable. I've watched early Seagal, well he was like 36 when he started movies really, but I think he was nearer 6ft 4 than 5. Hoff there's always a chance he was a little over 6ft 4 flat because he still looks near 6ft 4 today.]
jtm says on 7/Dec/13
he was 2 inches taller than platt in a movie they did together but i think platt is closer to 6'2. neeson's peak height was 5'4 but now he is no more than 6'3.5.
Jamie says on 5/Dec/13
No silent d. 193 cm suits him fine
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Nov/13
Yeah, he could be heading toward 6ft3.5 now. His posture is not doing him any favours. But, 6ft3 flat? Not a chance.
Arch Stanton says on 28/Oct/13
Yeah he looks like he's lost nearly two inches in some of those pics. Freeman is struggling with 6'2" today I think.
miko says on 26/Oct/13
Rob I think we may have a case for a small current height downgrade with Liam, I think he's lost a bit looking at recent photos, doesn't quite give off that 6'4 appearance he once did.

Do you think he could be more 6'3.25/6'3.5 in 2013? He is 60+.

Yeah I think he was around 6'5" out of bed peak.
Arch Stanton says on 9/Oct/13
Could pass for 6 ft 5 in Schindler's List. He looks extremely tall compared to the rest of the cast. This is as legit a 6'4" guy as you can get.
Robert says on 6/Oct/13
193 peak
191 today
DB Cooper says on 21/Sep/13
@mumaieb

camera angles. perspective. that's why!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 19/Sep/13
He's standing a good few feet behind Eastwood in all three pictures.
If you watch that scene, you'll notice that Neeson had a good inch or so on Eastwood.
Neeson really did look 6ft4-5 in that movie
Silent d says on 19/Sep/13
He has this bad posture and a slouch that makes him look shorter but i know he is a big guy. Average joe he doesn't look that much taller than morgan freeman. 6 foot 3 at most next to him in that photo. That asian guy in that photo is huge for an asian. Who is he? I know he is japanese. 192cm.
Jesse says on 9/Sep/13
@mumaieb, it's because of the camera angles.

He looked tad shorter than Clint eastwood(who is 6'4) in 1988 movie dirty harry dead pool, Clint was 60 years old in that movie and Liam was only 36 years old in that film, so i wonder how could he be 6'4.... I think my guess he is not taller than 6"2.5"
lazybear says on 24/Aug/13
Damn he'd have been a great choice for reacher, I was thinkin mark strong as another possibility. Anythings better then cruise.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 31/Jul/13
Is 194cm peak possible, Rob?

Liam Neeson - 6"4.25"(194cm)

DB Cooper says on 11/Jul/13
Gave an equivalent, if not bigger impression than jeff goldblum and stephen fry (both over 6'4) next to 6'1.5 jonathan ross. Still a strong 6'4, but remarkably loose posture makes him seem significantly shorter. All claims of anything under 6'4 are totally understandable, but still bogus.
cd says on 10/Jul/13
At age 61 he's probably lost about 0.5" or a bit more by now. He certain wasn't near 6'5" at his peak, and is therefore probably slightly under 6'4" now. I'm going to go for 6'4.25" (194 cm) peak, and now 6'3.75" (192 cm).
rick says on 7/Jul/13
I second the notion that Liam should play Jack Reacher.
Silent d says on 23/Jun/13
He is an imposing figure. I think 192cm. People saying he is shorter than 6 foot 3 are out of their mind. He looks quite tall in taken. Towering maggie grace who is 5 foot 9 and over ten cm taller than famke janssen. 192cm.
Val says on 19/Jun/13
I think Liam should played Jack Reacher, maybe next time.
Putte says on 26/May/13
He's always hunched and still looks 6'4. 6'3 good posture is a minimun.
Rob says on 21/May/13
191 today
Lenad is sexy says on 25/Apr/13
I saw 6'4ish in the dead pool next to Jim Carrey. He can give a 6'3ish impression because he slouches though
Average Joe says on 5/Apr/13

6'4?
DB Cooper says on 3/Apr/13
6'4 today. Anything less is a joke. He's a big time huncher.
Average Joe says on 1/Apr/13
No more than 6'3 today with good posture. Around 6'2 with his hunch. Skarsgard has a good inch or two on him. If Neeson is still 6'4 then Skarsgard is in the 6'6 range...
Anonymous says on 24/Mar/13
Just watched Taken for the first time in a while. Caught the scene where liam stands next to 6'4.75 g. hertzburg at the party. liam's standing straight, though not quite as straight as hertzburg. Regardless, he's nothing short of 6'4.25, and is most likely slightly taller. liam neeson IS 6'4.
James says on 2/Mar/13
i think a peak neeson may have been very close in height too tim robbins.

in the deadpool
clint eastwood 6'3 (191cm)
Liam Neeson 6'4.5 (194cm) or 6'4.25 (194cm)

Neeson could have been anywhere from 6'4.25-6'4.5 peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Mar/13
Ok maybe 6ft4.25 peak. Did look at least 1in taller than Clint in The Dead Pool
Corrigan says on 24/Feb/13
He walked right passed me once, he was slightly hunched and he was maybe half an inch or an inch taller than me. I'm 6'2".
Nerfherder says on 23/Feb/13
Every bit of 6'4 as of today. might've been 6'4.5 earlier in his career before middle-age. He tends to look shorter due to poor posture.
James says on 8/Feb/13
He looks at least 6'4 in pics of him with then 6'2.5 Clint Eastwood in 1996.

Just go on Getty images and have a look for yourself.
Balrog says on 8/Feb/13
Yes at peak I'm sure he was 6'4'' and could be a little over and now he's under 6'4''. 6'3.5'' is a possibility. Look at him next to Nonso Anozie who Rob met and is a legit 6'6''. Also in Taken next to Maggie Grace (who Rob met aswell) he looks easily over 6'3''. Neeson when stand up well he towers over Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper, both of them are around 6'0''.
Lo sgozzatore says on 7/Feb/13
Balrog, i havent seen him when he was young. I've just seen his last movies and yeah, he looks pretty tall but i've never thought a big 6'4. In the last Taken, there's a scene with Famke Jansen, who's not over 182-183. She's wearing ballerina and he's wearing quite thick shoes, no less than 1.25 inches! Well he does look 11-12 cms taller than her, no more and considering he also has 3 cms and more advantage over her, he really doesnt look over 191, maybe 192. You really think he was a big 193-194 guy at peak?
Balrog says on 6/Feb/13
Peak 193-194 Today 191-192. I repeat he's a terrible sloucher and could easily lost a few cm already because of that.
James says on 5/Feb/13
6'4 1/2 peak is possible and today 6'3.75.
Balrog says on 2/Feb/13
Neeson is a terrible sloucher but I think he's still over 6'3''. Skarsgard didn't own him.
Jamesy says on 24/Jan/13
At his peak 6'4 looked very much belivable
Lo sgozzatore says on 22/Jan/13
If he's really 6'4, he's one of the shortest 6'4 i've ever seen. Legit 6'4 are guys like Jared Padalecki, Alexander Skarsgard, Jeff Goldblum, David Hasselhoff, Luca Toni. (In fact he was owned by Skarsgard).
Alex2 says on 19/Jan/13
6'4.25"
balrog says on 27/Dec/12
Neeson 6'4'' at peak and now 6'3.5'' perhaps. He hasn't good posture but still think he is over 6'3'' nowdays.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 25/Dec/12
I agree, Exorcist
Joey says on 24/Dec/12
i think he's 191cm nowadays...maybe 193cm in his 20s to late 30s
Trent says on 22/Dec/12
Are you guys aware Neeson claimed "6'4 and a wee bit" on Conan O'Brien?

Then, Neeson is not 6'4, Rob!
Lo sgozzatore says on 10/Dec/12
Rob, you think Alexander Skarsgard might be 6'5? I saw some pics of him with Neeson and Skarsgaard is definitely at least one inch taller, both standing the same (no posture excuses)... And this makes sense since Skarsgard always gave a taller impression than Neeson, just like Jared Padalecki or Jeff Goldblum!
[Editor Rob: I think alexander is pretty much a guy who would measure 6ft 4 at afternoon, a legitimate 6ft 4.]
James says on 28/Nov/12
I thought he looked more 6'3 in batman begins, taken and dead pool. Strong 6ft4 yes but can occasionally in films and pics gives a 6'3 impression.

Something too do with his posture maybe?
thinker says on 25/Nov/12
pure 6 ft 4, maybe even a bit taller
SAK says on 25/Nov/12
@The Exorcist, I would say Cooper is holding his own next to 6f4 Neeson.
James says on 19/Nov/12
He must have been slightly over 6'4 when he was younger if he is still a solid 6'4
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm says on 17/Nov/12
No way under 193cm for this guy, he look very tall even now at 60y, he almost towers Famke Janssen in those "Taken" movies, and Famke is 5'11.5.

He's still a big 6'4.
James says on 3/Nov/12
Liam neeson 6'3.5 (192cm)
Bradley cooper 6'0 (183cm)

Both tall men

Looks 194-195cm if the black dude is 6ft6(198cm)
Silent D says on 26/Oct/12
192cm.
newbie says on 23/Oct/12
Looking at that photo from The Grey line up you have Nonso Anozie leading with his shoulder but standing pretty tall, Neeson on the other hand is making every effort to hunch himself down to the height of those next to him. Something he seems to do a lot. Thinking across his career he rarely looks massive next to co-stars and the only time I've seen him look really tall was against Clint Eastwood. Can believe he's 6'4 but also he's a guy so comfortable with himself he's happy to drop himself down to the level of those around him.
Denis says on 21/Oct/12
Neeson looks 6'3" in most of his movies.
James says on 15/Oct/12
Nonso anozie 6'5.5 (197cm
Liam neeaon 6'3.5 (192cm)
The Exorcist says on 8/Oct/12
Looking pretty close to 6'6" Nonso Anozie. 6'4" is about right for him.

Silent d says on 3/Oct/12
192cm. Saw him tower ellen.
AMP says on 1/Oct/12
He was just on Live Kelly & Michael. Michael is 6'5". Liam said he was 6'4", and stood in front of Michael and looked every bit of it. They were wearing shoes of similar height also.
Robban says on 27/Sep/12
Yeh, he has lost a little but of height, 6'4.25 peak and 6'3.5 today
Silent d says on 27/Sep/12
192cm. In take taller than famke janssen and maggie grace by a considerable margin.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 26/Sep/12
I still think Goldblum was possibly 6ft4.5(194cm) peak. He was easily 3in taller than Will Smith and Bill Pullman in Independence Day. Neeson has always been a flat 6ft4.Stephen Fry can look 6ft5 but I'd bet more on 6ft4-6ft4.5 range.

Jonathan Ross is not over 6ft1 flat and can look just 6ft. I don't think he's really good for comparing height since he probably wears lifts a lot of the time.
Robban says on 18/Sep/12
He was atleast an inch shorter then Skarsgård, but I think Skarsgård is 194 cm.
Shaun says on 16/Sep/12
Watching Jonathan Ross now and the height difference I saw with Goldblum and Stephen Fry looked less, he looked between 2 and 3 inches taller than Ross. He's still quite an intimidating guy though with a considerable presence.
Justin 181 cm says on 27/Aug/12
definite 6 foot 4
Born says on 10/Aug/12
NO, this guty was taller than Eastwood in his prime. 6'4" at least
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 31/Jul/12
A strong possibility that he's dropped 0.5in
since he turned 60 a month ago. Looking
at his recent work he looks more like 192cm

But unquestionably has been 6ft4(193cm) for
most of his career
Peyman - 6ft 0in says on 30/Jul/12
I've just seen him in unknown & the grey & I gave him 6ft 2in , but now I believe he is taller , 6ft 3.5 in now & a legit 6ft 4in at peak would be my estimate for him.
BigT says on 27/Jul/12
Just because most men over the age of 60, at least that I know, have lost between 1 and 3 cm from their peak height, I would think the same applies to Liam. But not everybody looses height. My uncle was 181 cm at his peak, he´s still around 181 cm today at 67, probably a few millimeter shorter, but that´s not noticable. Liam has a bad posture, reminds me of my grandpa. He was a good 193 cm at his peak, in 2006 he had lost 5 cm to his height, and is probably around 186 cm today.
BigT says on 27/Jul/12
He was probably a good 193 cm in his younger days, but he´s lost some height over the years, so probably 190-191 cm today.
iguchi says on 26/Jul/12
I think he is 192-193 cm.
Hob says on 13/Jun/12
jtm, i state wrong. i mean liam look 6'4 in shoe recently and 6'3 barefoot. who is lan?

When I saw him a few years ago, he was closer to 6-3.
jtm says on 10/Jun/12
is hob lan jiao?
Hob says on 10/Jun/12
he look nothing over 6'3 in shoe. can give illusion being 6'4 but his not.
Mustangford says on 13/Feb/12
Neeson looks 190 centimetres these days it's not impossible for the guy to have lost 1 of to centimetres in height.
Chris says on 8/Feb/12
Bad posture next to Mulroney. 6'4 peak. 6'3.5 now.
Mr. R says on 8/Feb/12
I think that is Dermot Mulroney next to him who is listed at 5-9, which may be a half inch too high.
Silent d says on 6/Feb/12
That photo is a mystery nick. I suspect the shorter guy is wearing lifts because liam neeson is not 187cm. 192cm is solid for him. I don't think he is a full 6 foot 4 nowadays.
Nick says on 5/Feb/12
the guy next to him is listed at 5'9" 175 cm Click Here
Chris says on 26/Jan/12
He was a legit 6'4 guy, he hast lost some height. Looks 6'3.5 nowdays.
Kashfia says on 24/Jan/12
Taylor Momsen was at least 4 inches shorter than me when she was my age. So Liam Neeson was definitely shorter than me when he was my age.
Silent d says on 24/Jan/12
Solid 6 foot 4 even though sometimes he looks shorter. Awesome actor but sad that he lost his wife in that way. Bad posture but he looks 6 foot 4.
