A very very VERY weak 6ft, he definitely looks more in the 5'11 range, but i think he's 182cm, but no taller

How tall does he look next to Mike Tyson?

He is 6'0" in his bare feet.

this is totally right after watching how I met your mother series over again.I thought this guy was 5ft11 and Radnor 5ft10.5 but he looks taller then a flat 5ft11 so this listing is right

@Editor Rob: Van Dien? He does look 181-182 with him.
[Editor Rob: yes with van dien]

@Editor Rob: The angle in the pic I posted of Neil and Aaron Paul could be a little off, in this clip it looks a bit more straight forward (they appear after 4 minutes): Click Here Here's a still of one of the better moments: Click Here The downside however, is that now their legs are concealed, so we can't tell if Aaron is tiptoeing or something like that...

Think it looks a spot on 3in difference between them when both are standing with more equal posture. Aaron at 5'7.75 in about 0.5in more footwear would make Neil about 5'11.25 in this shot. I think Aaron would measure nearer 5'7.5 than 5'8 anyway, so my thought that Neil could measure nearer 5'11 than 5'11.5 isn't completely unjustified. But I get that there could be other variables that could make up for a fractional deviation in any case.
[Editor Rob: yeah I'd say a decent enough 3 inches there, but remember NPH has been with a guy like Casper who I think is pretty much what he claims a fraction over 5ft 9 - with him I'd have put near 182 for Neil]
cole says on 11/Oct/14
@Editor Rob: Yeah. When you don't pay close enough attention to it, I can imagine it's easy to be fooled. Might have to re-visit some of my previous estimates based on hairlevels among other things. I'm sure you could get an estimate wrong by as much as 2 cm in some cases if you don't know too much about that stuff - which thankfully you do ;)
[Editor Rob: I do try to pay attention to hair, but sometimes it can be hard to tell. Up close sometimes I've been surprised how much some hairstyles can add.]
cole says on 8/Oct/14
@Editor Rob: Would you say his hairline is nearer 2 than 3 cm? He never had a big hairline, but I think it has started to recede even a little further in the last year or two. For a while I thought he just had a long head, but it's probably just the lowish placement of his eyes and receding hairline that makes his forehead appear long.
[Editor Rob: not more than an inch for his hairline, maybe 2cm yeah.

that is another illusion, hairlevels - you might have one guy with 3/4 inch and another with 1.5-1.75 and your eyes might be fooled into thinking the shorter hairlevelled fella had a longer eye-head measurement.]
cole says on 3/Oct/14
He really is one to take that step closer to the camera - force posture and tilt up his eyelevel, isn't he: Click Here I see this in an awful lot of pics of Neil with other celebs - you won't catch him off guard very often.
[Editor Rob: maybe he's had lessons from big Sly?]
5ft10guy says on 27/Sep/14
I was watching HIMYM and this guy is in no way tall but hes like above average and his posture makes him look tall sometimes.He looks tall while Ted looks more above average to average .When colbie smulders wears heels Neil is always atleast 1 or 2 inches taller then her if she's 5ft7.
cole says on 27/Sep/14
@joe: Yeah he looks 5'11 a lot, but it's not unlikely that he'd measure a few millimeters over or under 181 cm, or at least it looks like he could in pics with Aaron Paul (granted I think he could be just 171 cm).
joe says on 17/Sep/14
looks 5'11 (180cm) in basically everything you can see him in - with hugh jackman, obama and in HIMYM - always has a perfect posture which gives him an additional edge over fellow actors such as radnor who tends to slouch

his claim is a classic 1inch round up -pretty much every male celebritiy in the 5'11 area claims 6ft when asked, because its got a better ring to it and ofc everybody lies a bit, when it comes to height -
cole says on 2/Sep/14
@Editor Rob: Fair enough! I'll throw in one of NPH with Aaron Paul for good measure: Click Here
[Editor Rob: with Aaron he can look over 3 inches, maybe 3.5 taller. There is a footwear difference, aaron has about half inch more]
cole says on 1/Sep/14
@Editor Rob: Alright, so basically a weak or strong 182 cm is what you think he could be. I can see it adding up with what he looks with guys like Hugh Jackman, Jimmy Kimmel/Fallon and Jason Segel - IF we assume those guys are nothing under their listed heights, then NPH looks more or less bang on at 5'11.5. The thing that makes it hard to believe for me though, is that he appears near 2.5in shorter than 6'1.5 Nathan Fillion and near 2in shorter than 6'1 Barack Obama. The consensus is that you could argue 0.5in under the listed heights for Jackman, Fallon, Kimmel and Segel - you couldn't really do that with Fillion and Obama.
I'd say 5'11-11.25 should be likely based on this and maybe 5'11.5 shouldn't be ruled out, but 5'11.75 and 6'0 is imo.

Also, what do you make of this?
One with Segel and Hannigan: Click Here
Alexis Denisof and Hannigan: Click Here
[Editor Rob: I would say 5ft 11.5 is a figure that he may well be very close to, sometimes he can look over or under it!]
cole says on 31/Aug/14
@Editor Rob: Ok. So in your opinion, 5'11-11.25 is too low a guess?
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't go that low for a guess]
cole says on 30/Aug/14
@Editor Rob: In your opinion, what is the most realistic range for NPH:
5ft 11in - 5ft 11.5in, 5ft 11.25in - 5ft 11.75in or 5ft 11.5in - 6ft 0in?
[Editor Rob: 11.5-11.75 probably, but then he could be 6ft for a chunk of the morning. ]
Hypado says on 25/Jun/14
182/183cm
cole says on 18/Jun/14
I've been saying NPH and Radnor both look like flat 5'11 guys ever since the HIMYM pilot first aired. They clearly look the same height in equal footwear and when Radnor isn't slouching so horribly.

NPH is arguably a guy who has figured out how to look taller in pics, as he almost always stands one step closer and is forcing his posture quite clearly, sometimes even tilting his head up. I wouldn't go as far as labelling him a lift wearer, but he certainly works the camera quite well. Radnor is the polar opposite to Neil in that regard.

The biggest evidence for me is seeing him with the 6'1 MEASURED Barack Obama, as well as with other 5'11 guys, like Hank Azaria and the aforementioned Josh Radnor. With legit 6'1.5 Nathan Fillion and Hugh "not 6'2" Jackman, 5'11 is what he looks. I'm also pretty sure I posted that full body shot of NPH standing right next to 5'10.5 Stephen Colbert on stage - looking pretty close to his height. 5'11.25 isn't completely ruled out, it's at the very top end of what I would agree with, but 5'11.5 or more just seems unlikely to me at this point.

He is 6'0.5

181cm.
Billy says on 21/Apr/14
Neil is a 6'0 guy Radnor looks 5'10
spr says on 14/Apr/14
His Obama pic clearly shows he is around 6ft and he himself confirms that. Sth between 5-11.5 and 6-0.5 seems reasonable.
Mr. R says on 25/Mar/14
MD, Mu judgement is pretty good. But I concede that there are other variables.
the shredder says on 25/Mar/14
5'11 with Obama.
MD says on 24/Mar/14
Mr. R, I hate to keep saying it, but you are really making me question your judgement. lol This guy isn't even as tall as 5'11.5" Jimmy Fallon - this much is clear - let alone close to 6'1".
Mr. R says on 22/Mar/14
I met him. He is pretty close to 6-1.
[Editor Rob: I'm sure he must have outpostured or footweared you, look at him with the 6ft 1 measured obama!]
Realist says on 20/Mar/14
He and Josh Radnor are 5'10.5 claiming six. This theory is called rounding of a foot to 6'0, Radnor looks 3 inches taller than 172 Zac Efron.
Banshee says on 26/Feb/14
This guy is not 6'0 tall, and some 6'1 claims are just ridiculous. He's got the posture of a 180 cm guy - doesn't appear 'tallish' like most 6'0 peeps do. Plus, too much evidence to suggest that he's nothing close to 182/3 cm tall.
Realist says on 5/Feb/14
Rob needs a downgrade to 179 and same for Radnor-179.
MOF says on 18/Jan/14
Agreed with dmeyer on Eastwood. I met him and worked with him on a scene in Flags of our Fathers and he appeared 6'1" tops. I was surprised because he was always said to be this extremely tall guy. He must've lost some height but he was 184-185cm in 2005, no question.
cole says on 1/Jan/14
@Jeremy: Spot on 2 inches shorter than Obama in fact. He is also 2.5 inches shorter than 6'1.5 Nathan Fillion. He's a 5'11 guy, same as Radnor - but looks taller on HIMYM because of the reasons mentioned endless times.
songo says on 30/Dec/13
6'1 is impossible
Jeremy says on 29/Dec/13
It's impossible for Neil to be anywhere near 6'1" - he was over an inch shorter than the measured 6'1" Obama.
DMEYER says on 28/Dec/13
i also met ll cool j and thaught over 6 ft 1 under 6 ft 2
songo says on 28/Dec/13
I'm undecided whether he is 6ft or not. In HIMYM he is usually taller than Josh Radnor who is 5'11.25 inches but sometimes look the exact same height as him. If he is under six foot it's only by less than half an inch.
dmeyer says on 26/Dec/13
Clint Eastwood was 6'1-1.25 10 years ago
dmeyer says on 26/Dec/13
I met also famke jansen who to me looked 6 ft since she was similar to me while i had 1.5cm more shoes , liam neeson looked about 6'3.5 , xander berkley about 5'11.5 , aniston about 5'5 , ruffalo seemed weak 5'8 , djimon hounsou seemed 6'2.5 but the ground wasnt good , Adrien brody fooled me for 6'0.5 , Dennis haybert weak 6 ft 5 , vince vaughn 6'5 , devito 4'10 shorter than my mother who Is 4'11 , uma thurman looked 6'4 including heels , s tucci 5'7.5-8in , dempsey near 5'10 , e dane and i Washington both 6'1 , heighl 5'8.5 , i met other i dont remember ,

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 23/Dec/13
I think he could be 182-183cm and Jason Segal 192-193cm.
There seems to be about 10cm between them on HIMYM.
dmeyer says on 22/Dec/13
Him and Radnor are about same height nph has much better postuure and most times 1cm more shoes so looks bigger 5'11.5 fits him and can look 5'11 flat with Obama and fallon
Mr. R says on 21/Dec/13
Rob, this is my height, and NPH had nearly 2 inches on me. He is 6-1.
[Editor Rob: maybe it could have been one time he had bigger shoes.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 21/Dec/13
That is insane. Was it maybe because you weren't taking this site as seriously then as you are now?
[Editor Rob: the first few months was getting pages]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 21/Dec/13
What was he in 2004, Rob?
[Editor Rob: his first entry was 6ft 1.5 and then 6ft not long after]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 20/Dec/13
Rob, was he always down here at 6ft?
[Editor Rob: not in 2004, but on finding his claim of 6ft he was that mark for many years]
Blaze says on 2/Dec/13
Segel is 6'4.
Han says on 7/Nov/13
Must have grown incredibly fast from age 16! Just look at him
in 1989 with 6'1" Lawrence Pressman!
cole says on 3/Nov/13
@Mr. R: If Neil relly was over 6'1, like you say, Obama would be over 6'3, Jimmy Fallon would be over 6'1, Josh Radnor would be 6'1, and Jason Segel would be pushing 6'6. It makes no sense, as it would mean that all of those guys are claiming about 2 inches below their "real height".
MD says on 29/Oct/13
You met someone else named Neil Patrick Harris, then, because he hasn't even claimed 6'1" for himself. Seriously, you'll lose credibility with that kind of silliness.
Mr. R says on 26/Oct/13
No, no, no! I have been in a room with him several times and he is over 6-1. Almost two inches taller than me.
MD says on 23/Oct/13
The multiple appearances with Fallon pretty much settles the case, for me. He's lucky if he's a full 5'11".
Han says on 20/Oct/13
In the second episode of HIMYM, he called Ted (Josh Radnor) something like "...little friend", to which he replied "We're the same height." When there's 1 cm between two individuals, they could pass as the same height. Both Radnor and Segel have bad postures, so they could look approx. 2 inches shorter than they really are, thus making it hard to pick their heights, and NPH appear taller than Radnor
NPH: 181cm/5'11.25, possibly 182cm.
Radnor: 180cm/5'11
Segel: 192-193cm/weak 6'4
cole says on 1/Oct/13
I've just got to say that, in decent full body-shots he rarely looks taller than 5'11 flat to me. I've done enough to prove he's 180 cm range, so I'll stop trying for now. At least until I find that definitve proof, which I will continue to look for - the Neil in the coffin if you like.

Never the less it's good to see him getting that half inch taken off from the categorically undeserved 6ft listing he's held for so long. Still I really doubt he'd measure 182 cm, but it's a start.
Blaze says on 30/Sep/13
thought he was 6ft
Balrog says on 30/Sep/13
Good call Rob, I still think he could be 5'11" flat. This proves one more time that Jason Segel can't be 6'4". Radnor can look near an inch shorter than NPH but I'd give him the benefit of the doubt because is a sloucher and wears flat shoes constantly while NPH has greater posture and is always suited up.
Mr J says on 29/Sep/13
NPH was in line with me at LAX today - he was wearing a Mickey Mouse high crown hat and I was the same height as his hat - I'm 5'11. NPH is 5'10 at most. Not sure what shoes he was wearing, and I was in flat flip flops.
cole says on 27/Sep/13
With 6'1 Obama

Shorter than Jimmy Fallon (Fallon seems to have stronger footwear).

With 6'1.5 Nathan Fillion he looks about 7 cm shorter in the brief moments Nathan stands properly (from 02:05 and out).

@Editor Rob: You have got to admit he looks 5'11 range with these people.
Emily says on 11/Sep/13
What do you mean with eye-head to eye-chin ration? That his eyes are at the exact middle level of his whole head? I thought his eyes were lower set in his head, he has a big forehead too. Look at this pic:Click Here
Conversely i think Cobie has a high eyelevel. If you think his head is average, do you mean around 9,5 inch range?
[Editor Rob: yes, on average the eye-chin is longer than eye-head...but in Neil's case, he has a bigger eye-head and smaller eye-chin.

I would think around 9.25 inch range]
Emily says on 10/Sep/13
Rob do you agree he has a small head for his height? Compare it to Josh Radnor or Jason Segel, his always looks so much tinier. Not even much bigger/longer than Cobie Smulder's head. How long is your guess?
[Editor Rob: it's not a big head, I think it is average, he has a similar eye-head to eye-chin ratio.]

cole says on 28/Jul/13
Rob do you have a comment on how he looks next to Stephen Colbert in the pic I posted on 17. July? I think 5'11 range seems more reasonable, as he also looks
it with Obama.

[Editor Rob: he can look a weak 6ft at times yes]

But you don't think he looks 5'11 flat if Colbert is 5'10.5? Can't really see much of a difference between them to be honest.

180cm.
cole says on 22/Jul/13
Look at my post from 17. July, he's barely edging 5'10.5 Stephen Colbert.
Erik says on 17/Jul/13
Literally just saw him at Equinox gym in Century City, LA about 20min ago. I spotted him on cable rows is regular gym shoes he was close to 6'2". Yes he has a rather skinny build and smaller head I'd call him about 160lbs. I'm 6'1" 190 lbs and he was right on par with me slightly taller.
Balrog says on 17/Jul/13
He has better posture than Radnor who slouches a lot and NPH also wears dress shoes while Radnor converse so I think they probably around same height so 5'11'' both.
cole says on 17/Jul/13
Click Here

Again, he should be downgraded. He's just not a 6' flat guy. He looks the same height as 5'10.5 Stephen Colbert. I know John Cryer for sure is no taller than 5'8.5, and none of them looks more than 5-6 cm taller than him.
Elias says on 13/Jul/13
no Xenon,he is at least 5 foot 10
Xenon says on 12/Jul/13
He doesn't look 6ft to be honest, He looks like 5 foot 9 on tv, but tv makes everything smaller.
I am 6ft 2 and i am 16!
MBH says on 4/Jul/13
he and josh radnor can totally look 5'11, however they appeared tall enough in the yips, were they looked the same height as many models in high heels
Silent d says on 3/Jul/13
He looks 5 foot 11 next to barack obama and it is hard to see him as a 6 footer when he is about the same height as kal penn and josh radnor. 180cm.
Cole says on 17/Jun/13
I think it's quite clear that he's not 6ft, 5'11 at best.
mId says on 11/Jun/13
He was the same height as Mike Tyson 5'9-5'10 when they were performing together. Click Here 3:15 He's nowhere near 6'
Peyman - 6ft says on 14/May/13
Christina Hendricks destroyed his 6ft mark & made him look no more than 5ft 11in, lets say (180-181)cm so Josh Radnor is maybe (179-180) & Jason Segel says goodbye to the 6ft 4in mark.
Lomax says on 16/Apr/13
I always thought he was 5 10
Emily says on 1/Apr/13
Do you guys think he has a small head for his height? I noticed his head is significantly smaller than Josh Radnor┤s, while they┤re about the same height.
cole says on 9/Feb/13
181-182 cm, like several users have pointed out, might be closer.
Viking says on 4/Feb/13
Let me tell you what I think. I'm 5'11.25 (181 cm) throughout most of the day and only hit 5'11.5 (182 cm) by early morning.I have big body proportions, big head, nose everything. My friend, who himself claims to be 6'2.5 and I sincerely think he is that height, has a much smaller head and leaner body proportions. Standing next to each other, we look pretty much the same height difference between NPH and Hugh Jackman at the Tony Awards 2011. I'm not saying Neil Patrick Harris is NOT 6' but it's still very questionable. I think he might be 181-182 cm, maybe hitting 6' early morning. It's quite hard to tell though. Great actor and entertainer btw.
Silent d says on 1/Feb/13
6 foot.
5ft10guy(Not Growing) says on 15/Jan/13
Rob nph 5'11.5 and Josh Radnor 5'11 flat cmon rob these guys arent 6ft tall.I would go as low as 5'11 nph and 5'10.5 for Josh at the very lowest.
Trey says on 7/Jan/13
Not a full 6-footer, 181-182 cm is possible.
Hew says on 30/Dec/12
His boyfriend David Burtka is 5'10 - 5'10.5.
Most of the time you'd see NPH edging him out with anything between 1 and 3 inches. But that's in pictures with much distortion, bad angles and different postures/haristyles/footwear(lifts or no lifts).

Like this: Click Here

Looked between 5'10.5 and 5'11 with Obama. Sure you're sticking with 6ft Rob? He doesn't really look it..
[Editor Rob: he can look in between 5ft 11-6ft]
Balrog says on 27/Dec/12
I said it before and now pics with Obama confirms that he's not a 6 footer.
Trey says on 26/Dec/12
Rob you should really study the Obama-pics. Unless Obama's 6'2 there is no chance NPH is 6'.
Dan says on 20/Dec/12
Rob, look at the pics of him with Obama! He's at THE most 5'11", if not 5'10" as Obama doesn't seem to be standing fully straight!
Trey says on 19/Dec/12
5'10-11 max, pics with 6'1 Obama destroyed the 6ft claims.
Joey says on 19/Dec/12
nph is more like 5'11 (180cm) at the very best with perfect posture which he always has (never seen him even slightly slouching) and radnor 5'10.5 (179cm)...
Chris says on 18/Dec/12
Rob, did your listing for NPH change? i feel like i remember him listed at 6'1 before
[Editor Rob: he's been at his 6ft claim for many years]
5ft10guy(Not Growing) says on 11/Dec/12
Yeah I agree with Archie 5'11-5'11.5 range Obama has him by two inches or more and Neil was struggling to look 6'0 with Hugh Jackman.
Click Here
Neil with Hugh Jackman
Here he is with Obama

I think hes 5'11 solid or 5'11.5.And his costar Josh Radnor is 5'11 flat.
Neil isnt 6feet but he's still awesome.
Archie says on 8/Dec/12
Under 6 foot Click Here (with 6'1 listed Obama)
balrog says on 3/Dec/12
I though he was over 6'0'' until both Enrique Iglesias and Jackman destroyed his claim. He's 5'11'' wears always dress shoes and has great posture so he looks taller than he really his.
Thorvald says on 31/Oct/12
5┬┤11 at the most. I also think some of the other HIMYM cast┬┤s height listings are a bit inflated. Jason Segel actually looked shorter or the same height as 6┬┤1.5 Enrique Iglesias, which makes sence, because he also looks the same height as 6┬┤1.5 Russell Brand, as well as Being way more than 2" shorter than 6┬┤6 Bill Fagerbakke. Neil and Josh Radnor are both around 5┬┤10/11 I think, as they both look close in height with 5┬┤10 Kal Penn. Anyways:

Jason Segel - 6┬┤2
Russell Brand - 6┬┤1.5
Click Here (Russel might have a tiny bit of a footwear advantage).

Enrique Iglesias - 6┬┤1.5
Josh Radnor - 5┬┤10.75
Neil Patrick Harris - 5┬┤10.5
Kal Penn - 5┬┤10
Trey says on 22/Oct/12
Hard to pin down, as I┤m not convinced by the claims of the actors/actresses some of you other users compare him to. He┤s NOT 6┤1", of that I┤m sure, but he┤s not shorter than 5┤10". Kal Pen is his listed height: 5┤10", he surely looked it with Mr. Obama. I have seen NPH with Penn many times, and they look roughly the same height, at least when Penn isn┤t slouching and Neil isn┤t exaggerating his posture. 5┤10.5"/5┤11" is my guess for his height. If he was taller; like 6ft/6┤1" as some users seems to think, guys like Kal Penn would also be 6ft, and I just don┤t see that.
balrog says on 20/Oct/12
5'11.5'' rounds up to 6 feet. It's normal.

Sometimes can look 5'10"...no more than 5'11". I don't buy 6'0 for him. I've read that he wears lifts, but that's hearsay. He's very slender(small boned) which can be misleading with his height.

@achello a true 6 foot will always look at least above average in most places except some places in europe(i.e. Norway). But if your in UK/USA a 6 foot person should feel taller than about 90% of people(women included). Since only roughly 20 percent of men are taller than 6 feet. Another interesting thing is that only 3.9% of men are taller than 6'2'. Truth is most people don't pay as much attention to height as someone who regularly visits this site, and if measured multiple times by a doctor or someone else, will likely just give the highest measurement when asked how tall. It is not necessarily true people lie about their heights, just that sometimes they don't really care. About NPH, seems a good 5'11 to 6 foot.

always has exelent posture and wears drssing shoes. could even have lifts. I'ld say 180-181cm. Looks like the kind of guy that would had an inch to his height.

Well now I'm sure that NPH is under 6 foot looking at him next to Hugh Jackman (both in dress shoes) in this video Click Here Jackman I'm not sure is a full 6'2'' because he got owned by 6'7.25'' LeBron Click Here Jackman could be 186-187 cms and NPH 181-182 cms.

I swear this guy can't go from looking quite average to look solid tall at 6'1''. Has perfect posture and wears dress shoes most of the time, really hard to pin down.
achello says on 2/Sep/12
really robbie? I'm 6'0 too (when I go to bed) and I feel that I'm shorter than a lot of guys.

I'm a solid 6' tall, I must say when I'm out walking around the call or the club I tend to notice that I'm taller or as tall as 90% of other guys, I could only imagine What 6'4" would be like, as far as NPH I wondered this in the first place because in HIMYM I saw him standing next to Jason Segal and noticed he only had a few inches on him, then in another scene he REALLY had a few inches, it shocked me because he seems like a small statured shorter man like Ted, but I would estimate a solid 5'11.5" with no shoes, the shoes I'm wearing right now are just an average pair of Adidas and I measured myself in and out of them and they are giving a 1.25" lift, some shoes are more and some are less

Chris Klein is 6'1, not 6'1.5. Anyway, NPH really looks slighly shorter, i think he could be a bit over 6', maybe 6'0.25 but no more!
Peyman says on 9/Aug/12
to me NPH is a good 5ft 11in & Segal is 6ft 3.5in
John says on 2/Aug/12
Check out 6'1.5 Chris Klein standing next to him in American Reunion. NPH is probably only a half inch shorter. It's unlikely that only one of them would be wearing lifts during a random scene for a film. I'd say NPH is closer to 6'1 than 6'.

smith is right, NPH is 6-1. For whatever reason, he downgraded himself, but I have met him and stood next to him on flat ground and he is 6-1.

Don't let the lifts fool you Mr. R, sub 180 barefoot.
5\'10 guy says on 27/Jul/12
