Ray Liotta's Height
5ft 11.5in (182 cm)
American actor best known for roles in classic films like Goodfellas, Copland, No Escape and Field of Dreams. Speaking to UGO about Narc, he once commented: "I used a lot of makeup under my eyes to just show a tired kind of guy. We added shoulder pads, lifts in my shoes because the character is named Henry Oak. A big, bruising guy."
. As for his height, he said in an edition of The Virginian Pilot in 1994: "Hey, I'm 6 feet."

Sonnecker said on 19/Jul/17
Full 182 cm in my opinion, 5'11.75". Maybe 183 years ago, but I don't think he has lost something arguable at 60...
Slim 181 cm said on 7/Jul/17
@shiva, agreed on 5'11.5 as he looked 3 inches taller than Johnny Depp in blow(I suspect Johnnys only 5'8.5)
shiva 181 cms said on 23/May/17
A 181-2 cms guy could look 6' at times
At his peak he looked more handsome than brad Pitt
Sandy Cowell said on 20/May/17
This Ray guy is one brilliant actor! I have at LEAST 9 of his films, probably far in access of; more 'research' is needed on that front!
Anyway, he seems a good 6ft or just under in his heyday, and not much less now!
He's a true classic and - wait for it! I remember his name popping up at the beginning of a 'Little House on the Prairie' episode! Yes, really! I was as surprised as you!
I will fill his box with 5ft11- and-three-quarters!
said on 15/Apr/17
His lifts were obvious in Narc, but he did seem really big in them: Click Here
And if Jason Patric is actually 5'9.5" then Ray can look at least 6 feet at the premiere here: Click Here
I'm not sure yet if he was 182 or 183 cm, he could look either. I think he's shrunk a little by this point.
Dan said on 19/Mar/17
Probably 5'10. In movies they were lifts or shoes with a nice heal. So my guess is 5'10. After watching blow he didn't look much taller than johnny drop who I believe isn't taller than 5'9. Actors always lie about their height. Sometimes they even get taller with popularity lol
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Feb/17
Importer, there are guys his height who claim 6ft2!
Importer said on 25/Jan/17
Most people round up dude, nobody realizes the difference in outdoors. It's an ego thing perhaps, but people who are proud of their height might round down, being modest, thinking that if he isn't for my case a full 6'1 he would claim 6'0 being at 184cm as similar as to Chris Pine, David Duchovney..but most other would round up to 6'1 even 6'2 lol which if you think about it can be believable by considering footwear, WHICH again loads of people do :)
Giorgi said on 11/Jan/17
Absolutely. I find it rather pathetic that most celebrities don't realize how dull it sounds whenever they declare "I'm six feet." Wouldn't it be cooler if you say, "I'm five-eleven"? ;)
said on 9/Jan/17
Rob, intriguing question: If you were 182 cm tall, would you claim six feet? At least on certain occasions ;))
Editor Rob: Giorgi, I think I'd have said 'almost 6ft' if talking in feet/inches, but probably not claim the actual six foot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Nov/16
@S.J.H: Those figures look believable. I thought Costner could look 2in taller than Liotta at times. He looked 186-187cm range if Ray was 182-183cm.
S.J.H said on 6/Nov/16
Ray Liotta peak 5'11.75 and kevin costner could be 6'1.25 peak. Nowadays Liotta look right at 5'11.5 and costner 6'0.75
S.J.H said on 25/Oct/16
Ray look at least 2cm taller than patrick wilson in Stretch. Wilson need to be downgrade at 180cm 5'11
said on 21/Sep/16
Rob, could that potentially be his peak?
Editor Rob: at times I think he can look 5ft 11.5 or close to 6ft, I'm not as convinced a full six footer though.
said on 28/Aug/16
Rob, did you have him at 6ft originally?
Editor Rob: I think he was on his claim for a while.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Aug/16
Looked over 3in shorter than Jeff Daniels in Something Wild who many say wasn't a full 6ft3 peak
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/16
Looked a good 3in taller than DeNiro and looked at least 6ft but with Sorvino barely 5ft11...strange
6 foot on a good day said on 19/Jul/16
Michael Shannon is wearing 3 inch heels in Iceman not to say Ray isn't either! Not a good film to make height judgements on
Peter 179cm said on 12/Jul/16
In The Iceman,Shannon had a solid 10cm on him,maybe even 11 so if he's 192,then Liotta comes in at about 181-182cm which makes this listing pretty much valid.
said on 1/Jun/16
Was he recently downgraded?
Editor Rob: I can't remember when I put him on 11.5, a while back
Ice said on 31/May/16
182 cm in Goodfellas
Mr. Kaplan said on 28/Apr/16
He's 5'11" and has always been. Stallone was never taller than 5'8" and neither was De Niro.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Apr/16
Rob, where would Ray measure in his prime?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Mar/16
6ft in the 80's-90's is possible. Looked 3in taller than DeNiro (most likely still 5ft9)
richie said on 5/Mar/16
@Greg..I think DeCaprio is a weak 5'11" which is why Liotta had a good inch on him
said on 31/Jan/16
That's odd, he looks noticeably a bit taller than de Caprio in the pictures here (Click Here
near bottom of article). I thought de Caprio was 6ft too. Who knows what their footwear was.
ElDuderino said on 18/Dec/15
looked a solid six feet in goodfellas
richie said on 12/Dec/15
Liotta is a strong 6 foot, no way is he 5'11", watch Copland, he had a good 3 inches on Stallone who himself is 5'9" so anything less than 6' doesn't read true....
ElDuderino said on 12/Dec/15
Rob, you should add Liotta as 6' for peak height, because there is no way in hell that he is below six feet in goodfellas. He looks six feet on the spot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/15
Baldwin - Strong 5ft11
Liotta - Weak 6ft
Probably not an awful lot between them but I think Baldwin wears lifts to get closer to 6ft+ dudes. In Goodfellas Liotta looks right between DeNiro (5ft9) and Paul Sorvino (6ft2½-3).
said on 19/Aug/15
Haven't seen the film, here's the only shot of Liotta next to Baldwin...I'm guessing that Baldwin may have a terrain disadvantage here.
I wouldn't think they're be much between Baldwin and Liotta on even footing. If anything I get the impression Liotta might be a smidge taller, would be really surprised if he was 2 inches shorter.
RighteousPeach said on 5/Aug/15
@an anonymous peach
Why the Hell would he add GTA to his credits? The entire objective of this site is to categorize people by their heights, and -- while he may've lent his voice to the game -- he never appeared in the game physically, making it an entirely irrelevant detail.
Spencer said on 18/Jun/15
He looks just about 6 ft in Goodfellas. Maybe 6 feet in the morning and a fraction under during the day.
an anonymous peach said on 10/Jun/15
Can you add Grand Theft Auto Vice City to his credits? I know it's a video game, but still.
With that aside, De Niro was really struggling to look 5ft 9 when standing next to him in Goodfellas
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/May/15
I think Liotta peaked at 6ft while Baldwin may have been a fraction over 5ft11.
Steve said on 9/May/15
Well, Liotta was shorter than Baldwin. Like I've said, watch the movie.
Lorne??? said on 8/May/15
Liotta woulda edged out Baldwin. Alec I think was likely 5'11.25, Ray was 11.5-11.75, so he'd have edged him out.(IMHO).
Steve said on 6/May/15
Not in the movie. Not unless you have your tv upside down.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/May/15
Liotta looks 2in taller than Baldwin!
Steve said on 4/May/15
Rampage, watch the movie. You tell me. In every shot, Liotta is shorter.
said on 3/May/15
This is guy is testament to how short life really is, can't believe he's 60!!
[Editor Rob: which is why when you fill your life with variety, new experiences etc sometimes it might not go by as fast.]
said on 2/May/15
You sure about that, Steve?
Steve said on 2/May/15
Stallone is short. So naturally Liotta would appear taller.
richie said on 1/May/15
Ray Liotta is a solid 6', watch the opening scene in the movie "Copland", he towers Stallone by a good 3 inches so anything less than 6' doesn't read true....
said on 1/May/15
In Goodfellas he's acting with short actors.
Watch the movie The Last Shot. He's two inches shorter than Alec Baldwin. And Baldwin isn't wearing lifts.
Liotta is obviously shorter than Kevin Costner. Click Here
And here he's shorter than Brad Pitt. Click Here
And here. Click Here
And here Liotta is only slightly taller than Stallone and several inches shorter than 6'2" Gerard Butler. Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 30/Apr/15
Nah not that short Steve, this guy could pull of 6 ft in films like Goodfellas.
Steve said on 29/Apr/15
I believe Liotta is no more than 5'10". He was two inches shorter than Alec Baldwin in The Last Shot.
So unless Baldwin is close to 6'2" which he isn't, no way can Liotta be anywhere close to being 6' tall. Watch the movie. You tell me. By the way, it's an extremely funny movie.
Sam said on 29/Apr/15
IMO, I'd think Liotta would have had a fraction over Alec Baldwin, more of a near six foot impression, but I could be wrong.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/15
He always gave a taller impression, especially in Cop Land and Goodfellas.
I thought he was like 6ft2!
cole said on 25/Mar/15
Editor Rob: You don't have any 5'11.75 peak / 5'11.25 current listings - Ray fits the bill!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Mar/15
If DeNiro was still 5ft9 in the early 90's then Liotta could very well have been 6ft.
james said on 21/Mar/15
LOL I thought that was George Lucas in the pic above .wow he's aged
said on 17/Jan/15
Rob, in their prime who do you think was taller Alec Baldwin or Ray Liotta?
[Editor Rob: it might be hard to tell them apart I suppose.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Dec/14
"Peak height was 5ft 11¾in (182cm)"
Lonestar said on 17/Dec/14
He never drop any height infact he was a solid 5'11 guy. Always
HajKew said on 15/Dec/14
Ray Liotta is NO WAY 5'11.
Back in 1990 my sister and I went to the Cannes Film festival and we met Mr. Liotta. I stand 6'2 barefoot and my sister 5'8, and he had a solid 4 inches on her. Definitely 182-183 range.
Danimal said on 7/Dec/14
Rob, there is a pic of Ray and James Gandolfini, where Gandolfini has close to 2" on Ray.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/14
Could be 5ft11¼(181cm) today
cole said on 28/Sep/14
In Goodfellas he looked pretty much 6ft with De Niro. He could have been just a fraction shy of the mark in his prime, now he can look just a fraction over 5'11. 5'11.75 peak and 5'11.25 now is my guess.
Dmeyer said on 11/Jul/14
One thing dosnt lié is the built he has one of a 182-3cm Guy pitt has one of 179-180cm
HULK said on 10/Jul/14
Peak height--- 184
Height now--- 183
Brad pitt in HEELS 6'1, next to Ray liotta in normal shoes look the same Height
Nothing less than 182

Ray Liotta height: 5ft 11.5in (182 cm)

Rob how tall is he today 5'11" he did look a haïr under pitt when in léss shoes
[Editor Rob: he could now be hovering around 5ft 11 range.]
James B said on 27/Mar/14
Looked 6ft in goodfellas
thedude said on 24/Jan/14
rob what do you think of pictures from the last oscars that show Pitt a good inch taller than Liotta? even with lifts it shouldnt make him taller than liotta....
Mr. Kaplan said on 18/Jan/14
He's 5'11". John Travolta is a legit 6-foot flat and he's taller than him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Nov/13
Liotta is about 6ft, give or take. Doubt he's 5ft11 flat
jtm said on 13/Nov/13
Jimmy said on 3/Nov/13
Can't possibly be 6ft. Paul Sorvino (6ft2) towers over him in Goodfellas
Arch Stanton said on 6/Oct/13
Definitely looks 6 ft next to De Niro in Goodfellas.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Oct/13
He does look about 6 ft in Goodfellas.
Sain t said on 3/Sep/13
Ray and Seth in Observe and Report looked about the same. Strong 5'11" for Seth and weak 6' for Ray.
richie said on 30/Aug/13
Ray must be a good 6',he had about 3 inches on Stallone in Copland and was also taller than 5'11" Robert Patrick. I think it would be ridiculous to suggest that he was
any shorter than a legit 6.
richie said on 29/Aug/13
Always thought Liotta was over 6', certainly had 3 inches on Stallone in Copland and taller than 5'11' Robert Patrick. A solid 6' during the 90's.
5'7.84549498719 said on 27/Jul/13
If he's almost 6', how come Paul Sorvino looked so much taller than Ray in "Goodfellas"?
Dmeyer said on 31/Dec/12
When Pitt looks 0.5 in taller than liotta it is because hé has 0.4-0.5 in more shoes and better posture , but when liotta stands tall hé is as tall as pitt in bigger footwear , hé isnt 5'11 flat today maybe 5'11.25 and solid 182cm peak like 5'11.5-11.75
ddddd said on 2/Dec/12
theres a senator he fakes he is and they say hes 5'6 but theres a picture of him with somenoe thats 6'1 and hes standing next to him and you can tell hes about an inch shorter, so id say 6 foot. oh the guys name is john boehner
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/12
He was 3in taller than DeNiro in Goodfellas. 6ft is possible. In Narc he was easily 6ft2 or so in those lifts.
Dmeyer said on 20/Aug/12
At peak very possibly 6 ft at 1 pm
ray 6' 158 lbs said on 8/Aug/12
i think he wuz 182 in yonger years and now 180 just like bruce willis and after a hard day he is onl 178 cm i guess
Mr. R said on 7/Jun/12
He is just under 5-11. Saw him in Hwood.
toby said on 5/Jun/12
If he's this tall what was that fan thinking when they said he was only 5'9? Some people have no clue about heights.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 2/Dec/11
He looked huge in Narc, he might be 5ft 11.75in (1.82 m).
LAN Jiao said on 2/Nov/11
lol. Mr R upgrade 6'4 dead on jared padalecki at 6'5 and downgrade tons of actors.. but i agree ray is under 5'11, at 5'10.75 or 5'10.5 john travolta looks the same as him.
Vinny said on 1/Oct/11
I guess 6' and I'm sure he's a nice guy, but I wouldn't want to tick him off!
Mr. Kaplan said on 25/Sep/11
He's shorter than Travolta and 5'11".
said on 18/Sep/11
Ok rob! But do you know him? Some people that worked with him said 188, other people crazy heights like 194 or at least 195! He claims 190 because here in italy we have the metric system! Some people said he also had shoes, like cowboy boots! I thin that a legit 188-189 man with big shoes can look a giant. Do you agree?
[Editor Rob: with boots in that range they're going to look quite tall, but I don't really know him.]
Mr. R said on 30/Aug/11
Ray is just below 5-11. I saw him in Hollywood.
ANDREA[ITA] said on 29/Aug/11
Ok! But he was towered by garko who claims to be 190 but is more like 189!
said on 28/Aug/11
Who? Vincent Spano? Garko? Or Liotta? Rob?
[Editor Rob: Spano ]
said on 27/Aug/11
rob, how much do you think Vincent Spano is? On wireimages there are some pics of him with Ray Liotta and he looks 2 cms taller than Ray! In the web he's listed 6'2 but in an italian movie he looked almost 4 inches shorter than 189 Gabriel Garko!
[Editor Rob: maybe he's not over 6ft 1]
blackfish said on 19/Jun/11
My parents are 5'7 and 5'4 and my brother somehow got to 6'1. I'm 5'9.5 and 18 years old...will I reach at least 5'11.5 like Liotta?
I was that same height at 18, but I grew to 5'11.5 during my first year of college

5 ft 11.75 is possible

this height is fine. he looked about 3 inches shorter than 6'3" jeff daniels in something wild and ray liotta was in cowboy boots.
Matt said on 16/Mar/11
@Robert Jungitsch - He would be shorter than Danny Glover if he was anything between 6' 2.9'' and non existant, why does that automatically make him 5' 11'' lol
Bon_ said on 12/Feb/11
Bon_ said on 10/Feb/11
Liotta is a legit 6 ft. Come on, Rob, you don't have to put him at 5'11.5 just because he doesn't earn your benefit of the doubt.
Robert Jungnitsch said on 9/Jan/11
I always thought Ray Liotta was 5'11'' since he's shorter than Danny Glover who's 6'3''.
Spence said on 16/Nov/10
I think he is just below 6 feet..this is spot on
Mike said on 1/Oct/07
Stood next to him at premiere of Copland.I am 6' 1" and like Pee he was just a little shorter than me,at least 5' 11",could be 6'
ted said on 22/Aug/07
John Boom got to be on serious arogant.Definetely not amusing.Liotta is 181cm and yes he is tall.
pee said on 31/Jul/07
I played hoops with Mr. Liotta at a gym in Peoria< IL where his wife is from one christmas. I am 6'1" and he was just a little shorter than me so I would say 5' 11" or a bit taller is more accurate. He's got no game I got his shot twice, but a hell of a nice guy very friendly.
Anonymous said on 16/Jul/07
he had a lot more height than deniro in goodfellas, deniro being around 5'9. i thought liotta was closet to 6'0.5-6'1. gives a big appearance, but he is over 50 now, so maybe he did lose a little height nowadays.
glenn said on 12/Jun/07
why isnt my post up here rob? liotta isnt 5-10.at least 5-11.
Mr. R said on 10/Jun/07
He is 5-10. I see him around Hollywood.
will said on 16/Apr/07
he is more than 5'8 he was level with travolta in wild hogs and he is supposidly 6'2 i say more like 6,0 at best, i would say liotta is 6 foot
Austrian said on 11/Apr/07
i think Peter Fonda is at least 6'3
at least he was when he was younger
Anthony said on 1/Apr/07
Liotta wore big boots in "Wild Hogs" and looked an easy 6'2. He was noticably taller than Travolta and looked the same as 6'2 Peter Fonda. He's not under 5'11.5.
dmeyer said on 20/Feb/07
could be 6 ft to me 5'11.5 at the very lest
John Boom said on 19/Feb/07
Ha! I'm 6'3", Liotta is a shrimp. Actually the avg hieght is about 5'8" so he is not too bad, but someone thinks 6'1 is "huge". Has she ever watched basketball?
[Editor Rob: Basil Brush was at least amusing, you ain't.]
Anthony said on 22/Jan/07
While I wouldn't say 6'1 is huge, it ain't small in any sense of the word. A 6'1 is taller tha most people, and it isn't hard for a 6'1 guy to be mistaken for a 6'2 or even 6'3 guy. Heck, I have a friend who's dad I always thought was at least 6'4, until I finally asked her. I was shocked to find out he was only 6'1!
And back on tpic, Liotta is definitely 182-183. He can look 185 at times, such as in "Goodfellas".
Austrian said on 21/Jan/07
so a 6'1 guy is huge? LOL!
besides Liotta is a legitimate 5'11-6' guy
Anonymous said on 7/Dec/06
Well, Ray Liotta was eye to eye with Joseph Fiennes in a movie they made with Gretchen Mol (can't remember the name, dang), Though Fiennes looks the same height as Gwyneth Paltrow in Sheakspeare in love, and she was in flats, so if Gwyneth Paltrow is 5'9, they both are 5'9 too? my guess is that she would wear 5 cm lifts in some scenes that would make her look taller, like 1.80 (without showing her feet of course), I think Ray Liotta is indeed 5'11.5, and Joseph Fiennes is not 6', more like 5'11.
J. said on 23/Sep/06
One more "Identity"-related note, Liotta's character's height is listed as 6'0" on a prison ID form.
J. said on 23/Sep/06
As you can see with my previous posts of the day, I've been watching the movie "Identity". Height-wise, it's interesting. Liotta, looks a solid 5'11", next to John Cusack in their scenes together. That is if Cusack really is 6'2".
alex said on 17/Sep/06
Frank 2, when was ray liotta ever "skinny"? even in goodfellas I never would consider him "skinny". He's always looked average to husky in my opinion. Any pictures of skinny liotta? And 150 pounds is way off. if he was 5-11 and 150 pounds he'd be scarecrow. Which he definately isnt. If
Anthony said on 15/Sep/06
Nice, photos, Height Detective. In Liotta's defense, Sly is probably wearing the height enhancers he is so famous for.
dmeyer said on 15/Sep/06
dont forget that rapaport is pushing 6 feet4 i dont think liotta is less than 183 anything from 182 to 184 is possible
Anthony said on 10/Sep/06
Yes, Height Detective, now that I look at it you're right.
Glenn said on 10/Sep/06
Couldve sworn he was 6-2 when I met him 16 years ago.
Height Detective said on 9/Sep/06
Anthony , in that pic with Glover , compare their boots , seems like liota boot have more heel than the boots glover is wearing
Anthony said on 9/Sep/06
Yes, as I pointed out he looked at least 6'1 in "Goodfellas". And as Frank2 pointed out, he was very thin at that time.
Glenn said on 8/Sep/06
He is a tricky guy.16 years ago he looked 6-2 to me.of course in lifts.
sam said on 8/Sep/06
I've never doubted his 6' feet even claim.
Anthony said on 7/Sep/06
Well, if he says 6', then I guess he's 6'. He's an inch taller than Weaver in the pic I posted below, and if she's 5'11 these days, Ray's definitely 6'.
Editor Rob said on 7/Sep/06
In 1994 Virginian Pilot he said: "Hey, I'm 6 feet."...
Anthony said on 30/Aug/06
Ah, didn't know that. Doesn't make sense though since the real Henry Hill was only about 5'9 or shorter. Not to mention he wasn't portrayed as particularly dangerous in the movie. You sure it wasn't Pesci?
Felix said on 28/Aug/06
Anthony - Ray Liotta weard big lifts for Goodfellas too look bigger and more dangerous.
said on 24/Aug/06
Ray looks about an inch taller than Sigourney Weaver here, who IMO was about 6' in her prime and not too much shorter today.
Anthony said on 15/Aug/06
Glenn said on 15/Aug/06
Thank You Anthony.
Glenn said on 14/Aug/06
Deniro is 5-9.
Anthony said on 14/Aug/06
De Niro was 5'9 at his peak, and considering he was still relatively young when he did "Goodfellas" he was probably still there.
Height Tracker said on 14/Aug/06
In those pictures, Liotta looks a solid 3 possibly 4" taller than 5'8" Robert Deniro. This would make him between 5'11" and 6'0", just like Rob lists him at. There's really nothing awe-inspiring about that.
dmeyer said on 2/Aug/06
i agree with glenn he rarely looks less than 6 feet
Glenn said on 6/Jul/06
I havent seen liotta in awhile.but when I did he looked 6-1 at least.maybe always wears lifts.
bikagyura said on 1/Jul/06
have you had a look at the boots he wears in Something Wild then Ayreon? I can tell you this much: they will give him an 1-2 xtra inches
Frank2 said on 9/Jun/06
De Niro is 5'8".
J-Dog said on 8/Jun/06
Isn't Paul Sorvino 6'3"?
dmeyer said on 25/May/06
rob i agree he is close to 6 feet
smoke said on 24/May/06
Anthony De Niro is 5"9 so therefore Liotta is 5"11
sam said on 9/May/06
In the film Identity, his wrap sheet or whatever it is says he is 6' feet. But that film is weird because they also show the heights of both John C. McGinley and Jake Busey as 5'10", when both of those guys are well over six feet tall and clearly taller than Liotta.
Anthony said on 8/May/06
Liotta is 6'. In "Goodfellas", De Niro is about 5'10 and Liotta is a visible 2 inches taller. Also, Paul Sorvino is about 6'2, and Liotta looks 2 inches shorter than him. He's 6'.
dmeyer said on 23/Mar/06

I've met Ray and he's slightly taller than I am so I'd say close to 6' is correct. He's also skin and bones. I doubt he weighs more than 150 lbs or at least he did back then which was right after he made Goodfellas. And Duval is short, probably no more than 5'8". He might have been 5'9" when he was younger, say back when he appeared in To Kill a Mockingbird. But he looked like a shrimp next to 6'3" Greg Peck and 6'2" Frank Overton. Frank was a wonderul actor and died way too young. He was one of those who made it look natural.

Liotta is just under six feet. I've met him. And Duval was never more than five-nine. The last time I saw Duval and spoke with him was at the Emmys. He wore cowboy boots and looked to be at least two inches shorter than me.

Surprised he's this short; looked over 6'0" in Goodfellas but maybe he's friends with Sly's shoe makers. ;-)

No way this guy is 5'11. I saw him after he was doing the play "Match" and he has to be at least 6'1-6'2.

In Identity, they show some piece of paper that says 6' feet tall for Liotta. Also in the same scene, they show the license for John C. McGinley and the rap sheet for Jake Busey and they both say 5'10". This is bizarre because both of these later two actors appear to be well over 6 feet tall (and taller than Liotta). As for Liotta, I think he's a little over 5'11" and just rounds up to 6' feet to make things easy.

He looks like a six footer in movies compared to other actors. But then again these Hollywood stars and their lifts..oh well..

I have meeted Paul Sorvino and i can tell you that guy is easy 6'3 +, maybe those days a little shorter but when i meeted sorvino in 1997 he was not shorter than 6'3 ft. Liotta looks 3 inches shorter than Sorvino. De Niro was at his peak close 5'10 because he was an inch taller than Jack Nicholson in 1976. DE Niro was exact as tall as Duvall in 1981. In 1990 De Niro looked 5'9 in my opnion but in a Cape Fear documantary, one of the producers is saying that 5'10 De Niro had lifts on to be closers to Nick Nolte height who was 6'1 at that time.
Lorraine Bracco is in some sites listed as 5'10, i dunno but she is probably closer to 5'9.

You have Robert Duvall at 5'8.5" - Liotta looks more than 2.5" taller in comparison here, even if Duvall stands up straight.
[Editor Rob: to me it looks like a 3.75 inch difference max. Duvall looks to be leaning slightly in so maybe if he straighten up...]

Yeah what Anonymous says - the mugshot on the newspaper shows his hair to be on the 5ft 11 mark. As short as 5ft 10? Maybe assuming they measured the police height chart correctly ;)

In "Control", his most recent film, there's a police mugshot which shows his height as about 5'10".
