How tall is Rob Paul

Rob Paul's Height

5ft 8in (173 cm)

I created in 2004 and have been working on it ever since. I take photos with celebrities at Signing Events and Conventions because the ground is flat. Street photos are much harder to use for height comparisons, and most celebrities really don't want pestered when out and about their daily business!

I'm 5ft 8 barefoot, or to be precise, 5ft 8 and 1/8th at night. Out of bed I measure roughly 5ft 8.8. For some some height-related videos (both educational and amusing) check out our Youtube channel. As of 2017 I weigh 183 pounds and still stand tall at a comfortable 5ft 8.

The Faq answers some common queries, but if you've got a question about height that isn't necessarily celebrity-related, best asking it here. Time-willing, I'll answer as much as I can. I appreciate every visitor and if you spot any mistakes or discover any new celebrity height quotes do please add a comment letting me know.

@ Nik - Hi! The weekend is now underway! It is nearly 3am on Saturday morning! I just read through your last comment to me and must start this comment to you by agreeing in no uncertain terms with what you said in your final paragraph! Yes, this being a height site is bound to draw people's attention to weight, nutrition and overall health, and for Connor it has rubbed off in a very positive way! Who knows how many others have become more health-aware by visiting celebheights? Being surrounded by the statistics of our entertainers and others in the public eye, I am another one who seeks a healthier lifestyle as a result of coming here! I have made a concerted effort to eat healthier, though I do have my off days (this week for one!). Since my accident in the snow and resulting shrinkage, I have been in too much pain to walk for miles a day like I used to, but I religiously use my gym apparatus to keep the weight down! It's also frightening to think that I wouldn't be able to run away if I was ever attacked again, so I feel safest indoors, but I know it's not ideal and it does get me down!
This website has shown me that it's normal to shrink as well! This week I wrote a comment on Edward Norton, emphasizing that I felt he was too young to have already suffered shrinkage, but Rob replied that Ed had a bad horse fall, doing his back no end of damage, especially to his vertebrae, and I hadn't known that he'd had that happen to him.
Losing height can so get you down! You think "where has it all gone? Has the bone marrow been oxidized into thin air, and has the muscle and fat tissue been condensed together to give you to makings of a stodgy old fart's shape?" Believe me, it's not nice, even if it is normal!
It must have been fun to find that you'd arrived at the right height for Brian Thompson! I have noticed on this site that there are tips on how to measure a celebrity! I haven't been to see that page yet; I just compare the celebs with ones that I know the heights of! I found one of my first ever comments recently and I couldn't believe that I referred to 1 to 1-and-a-half inches as 'a tiny bit' back then! I know now that that sort of difference is quite a lot, and darn well noticeable! So my perceptions of height are becoming more realistic!
Life on other planets, time snd space, government secrets... what a fascinating and never-ending subject! I think that if certain branches of the government were to open up to the pubic the things they keep hushed up, there would be mass panic! They have to concentrate of the day-to-day running of the country and if frightening secrets came out, there would be bedlam! There are so many interesting things to do in this world as it is! I for one, never feel bored! Perhaps I am blessed like that! I could live for 200 years and I'd still be wanting to find things out!!!
Well Nik, my friend, here's to a fun-filled, fact-packed weekend!
Cheers! πŸ‘πŸ˜ŠπŸ»

To be fair I really don't know how much I have grown in the last year I was measuring back to the wall by myself and earlier in the day I had a big G moment using the aerosol method I got just under 5 ft 7 2 christmas ago 2 years ago I was measured on carpet at 5 ft 6 at night.
Editor Rob: I'd say be very pleased if you end up 5ft 9-10 range.
MrFish said on 24/Mar/17
Rob, what height should I claim generally, in ft/in and cm, if I wake 5ft 9.5in and am 5ft 8 and 5/8ths at my lowest?
Editor Rob: Fish if you said 5ft 8.5, then nobody in life will ever think you ain't that height...well, a tiny tiny percentage.

Even saying 5ft 9, it's middle ground and you are that height part of the day. You could always say 'almost 5ft 9'.

What I now do if anybody talks about height with me is I say 173cm because I am literally right around that mark, so if they don't know feet/inch then I can say just over 5ft 8 if I want...

Rob, I am Asian weighing 54kilos at 168cm.

Can I shrunk if I add at least 5kilos? Thanks
Editor Rob: no Juan, I doubt you'll shrink if you added even 10kg...
Wrs567 said on 24/Mar/17
@Csimpson 6ft: You are definitely a 6'0'' guy.

I wouldn't call you 5'11.75''

not the strongest 6fter around, but still 6'0''!
Blake said on 24/Mar/17
When you say still a chance what does that mean?
Editor Rob: well, 50/50 I'd say based on parents height and over last year what your growth seems to have been...but, height can throw curveballs.
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Mar/17
@ Sally - Hello! I found it an utter joy and privilege to be able to wish your young son a happy birthday yesterday via this website! It is great to be able to read the comments of people from all over our planet and even respond to them!
So Clayton spent his 18th Birthday at school! So did I and I got soaked to the skin on my 2 and a half mile walk home later that afternoon, whereafter I cried!!!
Yes, Easter is just round the corner now and that's a lovely time of year to go out and enjoy yourselves! I bet Clayton looks amusingly tall in his rollerblades, but he'll always be your baby! I can tell that you love him very much - and your other kids too, of course!
Have a wonderful weekend all of you! πŸŽ‚πŸ‡πŸ£
Arthur said on 24/Mar/17
Rob, what's an average inseam for a 5ft 10 guy?
Editor Rob: Arthur, we are looking at around 31-31.5 range.
Ben said on 24/Mar/17
Rob, something crazy just happened...I was measured at the school's nurse at 175.5 and I was so shocked cuz I'm always measured at 179 otherwise and I'm much taller than people who are measured at 173/175 and a little bit taller than people who are measured at 178...
I'm just letting this sink in right now...

Wow...just wow...

The scale she used was in tree and look kind of old while I saw it sitting in the wall....
Editor Rob: you've went from feeling like Big Ben to becoming Little Ben in the blink of an condolences to you!

if it was me, I might turn Green, stamp my feet and rip the stadiometer from the wall out of disgust! 🀒 Then I'd sue the school for giving out fake measurements! 😼 😼
Sully said on 24/Mar/17
Hi Rob, I am 175cm on the nose at 7pm . I wake up at around 177cm after about 7-8 hours of sleep.I normally claim 5'9". But im a bit concerned that 175cm at my low is a bit below 5'9" . Is it okay for me to state 5'9" as my height?
Editor Rob: Sully, you have the Celebheights seal of approval to claim 5ft 9...if anybody challenges you (unlikely) just tell em 'if Big Rob says I'm 5ft 9, I'm bloody well 5 foot 9! Now jog on mate'

but say it with a smile of course!
Sally (5'11 said on 23/Mar/17
@ Sandy - How sweet of you to wish my son a happy birthday. Neither of us have received birthday wishes from across the pond before. I am glad I discovered this website. It is awesome to read posts from so mamy diverse individuals living in different corners of the world who all have an interest in height. We didn't do anything special for Clayton's birthday because of school and work, but I think I will plan an overnight trip to an indoor Waterpark over the Easter break. Waterparks are super fun during/after a long Wisconsin winter. We also like to Rollerblade at an indoor rink a few times a year. You should see how tall Clayton is wearing rollerblades...haha! Please don't ask me for an exact height. I would only be guessing if I said 6'10.5". It's quite a site! But if we r all wearing rollerblades, we r all about 2.5" taller so I guess it doesn't matter. Have a great weekend, Sandy.
Blake said on 23/Mar/17
Rob, do you still think I could get to be over 5 ft 9? Also I was up almost two days with no rest and had my back under strain, I saw this as an opportunity to measure my real absolute low I got bang on 68 inches but it was a real struggle to stand up straight compared to usual. I think my usual low is between 173-173.4-5
Editor Rob: still a chance, just keep eating well and honestly, I'd try to resist temptation to measure and try to go 3 months without any measurements.
Canson said on 23/Mar/17
@Arthur: i agree with Rob let's get back to discussing heights. Nil or Sandy or Connor did nothing to you.
Leo2001 said on 23/Mar/17
A 8 inch aerosol give a proper measure Rob?
Editor Rob: yes, 8 inches is a satisfying length. If you go for something like 6 inches, it might not be up to the task and you will come up short...
lemur said on 23/Mar/17
Editor Rob: if the big fella on the right is 5ft 9, then yeah he can look over 6ft 2 in that clip.
big fella?lol well i think the boy looks rather small,anyway the evil guy next to him looks like 191cm i think
Editor Rob: you can be a big guy at any height πŸ‘
Sam said on 23/Mar/17
Hey Rob, just wondering, but do you think its fair to give everyone a lunchtime height considering everyone gets up at different parts of the day? Like you who gets at 7 in the morning, anyone getting up at that time will pretty much already be at their real low by lunch or soon after, especially with plenty of walking/excercise, but if someone gets up a few hours later reguarly and doesn't do much else, then he/she could be a fraction taller by lunch than someone else who is already at their low. Just wondering what you think. I often seem to be slightly taller at lunch during the weekends but I'm allowed to stay in bed.
Editor Rob: I'm now getting up at 4-5am these to bed at 9-9.30pm!

I do think the shrinkage is stacked towards the first 3-4 hours, so after that, it's like a fraction of height, but not a big amount.

Hi Connor,

You have done nothing wrong and have deserved the backing that you have currently received. It must surely not be long until you go on holiday to Italy!

Cheers mate.
Amaze said on 23/Mar/17
Hey Rob how's it going. What u been playing on ps4 recently??? I recently finished Titanfall 2 sp and it was amazing. What's your psn can I add you

Also do you think my little cousin will reach 6 ft?? His dad is 5 6 but 5 5 now and his mother is 5 4. At 10 years old he was 5'0, 11 he was 5'1 or 2
Now he's 12 nearly 5 5
Editor Rob: with those genetics, it would seem highly unlikely he could reach 6ft.

I've literally not played much, apart from Doom last week, I've been quite busy helping Jenny as this year we are going to do 3 conventions and for each one we will be doing our dealer table, so creating stock will take up a lot of time over next few months.

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Arthur... I think his "comments" speak for themselves πŸ‘
Sandy, naa, it has nothing to do with the biblical story... It is a tv show based on the book (called "Gomorrah" in fact), that basically describes how mafia still acts in certain cities of Italy, in particular Naples (in that zone, mafia is called Camorra so it's a wordplay)! It's a very good show, that I recommend you to watch! 😊 Although I'm sure there are some people out there that "don't give a fugoogle" πŸ˜‚
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Mar/17
@ Rob and Jenny - There's nothing more unwelcome than having chocolates and sweets heaped your way when you're trying to lose weight OR keep your weight down with healthy food choices.
I was with a skinny boyfriend (119lbs and 5ft8) way back when and I myself was skinny at only 91lbs as I was always on the go. After Christmas, our friends and neighbours would bring their unwanted chocs round to make us fat and spotty! I wasn't in any way amused or grateful! After the fifth intake one year, I had to put a stop to it! Chocolates make me lazy and tired and unable to do my daily tasks! I said "no more" and meant it! Next year they showed up again! It must be because I'm not considered tall enough to defend myself - ha ha ha! Just joking! But I was far too sheepish for my own good! πŸ‘ Bah to that! My boyfriend only ate a couple a day as he favoured savoury food!
I ended up giving them away myself in the end! 🍫🍩🍫😷

PS I hope Jenny had a lovely Birthday!
Editor Rob: yes Sandy, Jenny had a lovely birthday and I have hidden all the extra chocolates now so we can spread them out over the next few month, well ok days...😜

she even liked My card I gave her...
Csimpson 6ft said on 23/Mar/17
Rob I know you said we should just ignore Arthur and move on but he is still causing trouble on here and trying to wind people up and now he is being rude and disrespectful to Andrea and insulted him, if he keeps carrying this on I really think you should ban him because it seems like he doesnt want to drop it and he is obviously enjoying making people get angry and its so obvious that his posts are really becoming on the verge of trolling now and have absolutely nothing to do with height but just with abuse, insults and snide and rude comments.

I think it has gone far enough now to be honest...
Editor Rob:
Agree or disagree on heights, but sometimes these discussions can escalate and become a bit petty.

It is best for Arthur to just drop it and move on and back to discussing actor heights.
Csimpson 6ft said on 23/Mar/17
@Canson yeah im no longer going to respond to Arthurs comments now hes pathetic, Andrea and Rob is right lets just ignore him now and move on.
Csimpson 6ft said on 23/Mar/17
@Wrs567 No problem mate its fine, I am 6ft 0.5 out of bed, 6ft exactly in the afternoon and at night I dip a bit under 6ft, 5ft 11 7/8ths, on good days I can still measure 6ft on the nose at night and sometimes be a bit over 5ft 11 7/8ths.

Mr. Rob, add WWE superstars Christian (Edge's best friend), Jeff Hardy and Shane McMahon to PLEASE! Since you added many wrestlers, I think they deserve a page as well!

@Sandy Cowell

Hi Sandy,

Yes for many years we have arrived home early on the day of our holiday although we seem to be getting later these days. We used to set off earlier when my Dad was alive, we would often make a quick getaway at about 7:30 in the morning and once we set off home at half past 6!

You mentioned that when your Dad rang you up "The Chase" was on at the other end of the line, well Rob has recently added two of the chasers in Jenny Ryan and Shaun Wallace. "The Chase" is my second favourite quiz show to be honest after "Countdown", I don't really watch "15 to 1" or "Eggheads". Don't you think it is ridiculous that female contestants on "The Chase" have ribbed Bradley Walsh about his height, what are things coming to when a man who is a whopping 1/2 an inch below average is having the p*s* taken out of him on a quiz show on national tv, and by some contestants! I didn't watch it that day, did you Sandy?

I went on to Brian Thompson's page, it was yesterday I think, but the route there was a strange one, I searched on google to find images of him so that I could try to work out his height and I was met by loads of pictures of his buff body! Then after finding an image of him accompanied by a lady I decided to work out his height based on how tall I thought the lady was, well I guessed her to be about 5'8" so I worked out Brian Thompson's height as follows: I added her height to what I thought were 3 inch heels to get 5'11", I then worked out that he would stand at 6'3" with shoes on because she came up to the bottom of his forehead and there are roughly 4 inches between the bottom of foreheads and the top of people's heads, now with me having guessed his height in shoes I just had to take off the usual inch to get his height and I did that and therefore worked him out to 6'2". Now I clicked on this image and it took me to Brian Thompson's page on this site! Furthermore he was down as 6'2" which is what I guessed him to be! I think I got there a little bit by skill (having a reasonable ability to guess the women's height) and also by luck which was due to all the figures from the height of the heels, shoes, and extra height from the bottom of his forehead to the crown of his head all being guessed right In order to get me to a correct estimate of Brian Thompson's height! I didn't really have that much of a clue on his height to be honest without working it out as I did, sometimes when you are not sure you can get a good idea by comparing that person with someone whose height you can work out well and by using a few other techniques as well. I am often not good at working out the heights of a lot of people although I am not too bad at guessing the heights of others, it is not easy though because to me the same person can look a different height at different times!

I thought your Mum was spot on when she said that there are some things in life that we aren't supposed to know, I am now wondering if there are some things that some authorities do know but they are not prepared to tell us. Are they doing the right thing if this is the case? (Which I don't know if it is or not) because like you said we do as a species probably have an inner desire to find out about strange phenomenon. There are several things I would be interested in finding out like whether there are aliens in the universe and whether time travel is possible or achievable.

I haven't seen the film "The Mothman Prophesies" but I will search for information about it on the internet so I know what it is about, then if it takes my fancy I may buy it.

Now finally onto what you said about Connor Simpson, yes I think it is great that a consequence of him being a visitor to celebheights is that he has lost a bit of weight and therefore on course to be healthier in the future. I think Rob can be extremely proud of this like you said and for me this shows that mentioning other topics on a height website is a really good thing to do, this should be encouraged a lot in my opinion as long as most of the comments on this site are about height and most of the non height comments are useful or interesting.

Cheers. Have a great week buddy.

@ Rob - Hi! I was just looking through some films on offer on Amazon when I came across one called 'The Taking'.
Someone had done the following write-up for it, and I quote, "I'm a great big hairy man and this scared the sh*t out of me!"
I promptly ordered a copy and it will be arriving later today! πŸ‘»πŸ˜¨
Editor Rob: if a great big hairy man gets scared sh******, I'd certainly say you might be ending up with some nightmares...hopefully not about Big Hairy Men, or maybe that's your thing!
Michael R said on 22/Mar/17
Rob are the heights on the site the night time like right before bed or afternoon. Like say you list an actor at 6'2.25 would he be 6'2 flat or a hair under it right before bed
Editor Rob: more like afternoon range rather than morning range. The difference from afternoon to evening is rather small compared to morning to afternoon.
c-mo said on 22/Mar/17
Rob can Myofascial trigger points cause a few millimeters of height loss ? I have such a point on the left side of my back (I think it is because of training) . it hurts a little especially when I take a deep breath and I have the feeling that it took 0,5cm of my height but I am not fully sure . do you think it is possible ?
Editor Rob: muscle pains might effect posture, it is certainly something that might inhibit slightly your ability to stand at your tallest for measuring.

Rob, at 5ft 9.5in out of bed and 5ft 8 and 5/8ths at my lowest, would I be a solid two inches taller than Glenn (Big G)?
Editor Rob: Fish, you are basically the same size as 'Big Gemma' who I did a video with last year.

And let me tell you something...both yourself and Gemma would look so comfortably taller beside our dear old friend, that you could even take your shoes off, spread your legs 3 feet apart, balance a box of sharpies on his head and you would still be the one smoking a cigar when you take the Height Comparison photo.

Hi Rob, I will turn 21 years of age in a few months. I'm 5'11" since I was 17 years old. My dad is 1,78m (though he was 1,79m when younger) and my mom is 1,61m tall. I'm doing physical exercise, yoga, and eating and sleeping well, but... do you think is there any chance for me to still increase my height?
Editor Rob: you are doing all you can...some people end up buying an inversion table to add a few mm's, but you need to keep that up and these people spend 2 hours a day lying on the thing.

Ben said on 22/Mar/17
Rob, I'm gonna be measured this friday at my school's nurse at 9 am (2 hours and 15 minutes after I wake up)so I'm wondering how can I get my tallest measurement?

Here's my daily routine in the morning before 9 am:

06:45 AM: Get out of bed like a zombie and stretch my back and neck for 30 seconds.
Est. 7 AM: Eat 2 sandwiches + a big glass of milk.
07:10 AM: Sitting with my computer for like 20 minutes before getting ready for school.
07:40 AM: Brushing my teeths and fixing my hair.
07:45 AM: Walking est. 400 meters to the busstop which takes like 2-3 minutes depending on how fast I walk.
07:54 AM: The bus arrives.
07:35 AM: The bus arrives at school.
09:10 AM: My first lesson starts.

What can I improve to get a taller measurment? I usually fall asleep around 11 PM so I get about 7-8 hours of sleep every night.
Should I sleep even more? Keep myself hydrated all the time until 9 AM? Strecth more in the morning and/or at night?

I'm homemeasured (By myself facing the wall) at 179.5 after been awake for 6 hours which is like 5'10.75". I really wanna get that 180.5 which is my measurment (By myself...) out of bed. :)

By the way, R.I.P all those people who died and the policemen who died protecting their country and the people in it <3
Editor Rob: your routine means it is tough to get near morning height because activity of being up and about and active will start to shrink you.

If you felt a bit light headed before the measurement, ask to lie down for 15 minutes...then you can leap up and proclaim you are feeling better and be 3-4mm taller.

Although, I personally feel you should just go with the measurement and not worry about trying to get a taller one.

Rob,how tall is Steve Hewitt the former drummer of Placebo?listed at 6'1...hmmm while he looks definitely closer to 6'4 Olsdal than to 5'6 Brian I felt he's a solid 4" shorter,perhaps he's rather 6'?even 182 is possible?thanks.
Editor Rob: Tunman, from a brief look at them, if Olsdal was an honest 6ft 4-4.5 guy then I doubt Hewitt would be above 6ft, in fact he looks at most 6ft, maybe under it.
Sandy Cowell said on 22/Mar/17
@ Andrea - Thank you very much for your support! We will no longer entertain Arthur with any more responses. The whole thing became too childish for words!

Re: Gomorrah: I came across this the other day when I was looking through boxsets to buy from Amazon. It is 18 rated, so it made me wonder what it is about. Is it anything to do with the biblical story?

Hi rob, could you pls add Martin sensmeier to you're site? He plays the young Indigenous American hunter on Denzel washingtons "Magnificent seven".
Willy230 said on 21/Mar/17
Thank you for your answer. I think that claiming 5'9 and 1/4 is not my real height because that's 175,8, and my height after 7 hours out of bed is still 176 maybe 176'2 cm . You compared my height as Casper Van Dien , but to be honest I think I look taller than him like 1 or 2cm. He looks 175 cm during the day and I am 176 cm minium and still 176 before dinner, my lowest after 16 hours just before bed is 175'5cm. So being a strong 176 cm 176,2 and out of bed 177,5 cm can i claim 5'9 1/2?
Editor Rob: well, it's up to you what you feel comfortable claiming, saying 5ft 9.5 isn't outrageous, because for a portion of the day you are at it or a little fraction under.
Salman said on 21/Mar/17
Rob, back to the "tape in front of eyes in mirror" method, if I use an aerosol can and get 5ft 9 in the mirror at night, how much am I likely over or under measuring mysef by? Have you tried this method?
Editor Rob: Salman, if you hold the tape in front of your eye, straight up and look in a mirror (and your hair was flat as a pancake), then you are probably seeing your height a 1/4 inch under what it is.

Hey rob how can I understand if a wall is really bending forward/backwards? I measured at a wall and I think it was bending a bit backwards because I could see the that the top of it was more behind than the start or middle of the wall. Would you say that this is right?
Editor Rob: if you have a big long can (10-12 inches) and hold it against a wall (or have a friend do it).

Standing a few feet away, have a look at the can...humans can be good at telling if an object has a small tilt

@Sandy Cowell

Hi Sandy,

Arthur is trying to up his game to higher and higher levels, he isn't worth responding to when he is coming out with some of the comments that he is making and there is no way he is stopping me going on this great website. he can and should join in with the rest of us and use this site for the right reasons and then people will be different towards him. I think we should follow Andreas advice and just ignore the comments he is currently making.
I really don't like the things he is saying at the moment.

Rob, in a game of arm wrestling or mercy if you had to chose between the hands of Big SHow or Sultan which would it be??

Editor Rob: Sultan, as I think Big Show has more strength by a distance.
James B said on 21/Mar/17
Rob just curious was your 6ft5 height challenger pure muscle in build since he did MMA?
Editor Rob: I think he was carrying a few extra stones, not seen him for a few years now so don't know what he's like now.
Andrea said on 21/Mar/17
Rob, I want to waste some time... Have you seen a few more eps of Gomorrah? 😝😊
Editor Rob: not yet, I'm stuck on 3, any show with subtitles I need full attention on!

@Sandy Cowell @Csimpson. 6ft

Arthur is not going to stop me going on this website whatever he says. Honestly I am not answering him anymore and I am just concentrating on the positives of being on this website. πŸ‘πŸ‘


Cheers for your support. πŸ‘

Rob, have you thought of a cut-off point for the number of votes that constitutes an upgrade/downgrade?

For instance after 500 votes on this page and the average guess being maintained comfortably over 5ft8, you could give yourself a fractional boost!
Editor Rob: the voting is an aggregation of user opinion, it is to give an accumulative voice to those who take the effort to submit a guess and let's visitors see what that general opinion is.

There will be many cases I might not agree with the aggregate, there will be many cases I do. It is going to be ongoing, one day I might even end up with a peak/current height!

I'm always watching and taking in data on celebs, sometimes I feel I've seen enough to think another mark might be closer than a current.

Editor Rob: in the clip, the black-haired fella looked maybe an inch smaller..
So considering he has shoe disadvantage he would only be be 189-190?His neck sometimes is tilted forward maybe it makes him looks shorter
Rob couldn't he be 192?Here at 14:10 next a 5ft9 guy Click Here
Editor Rob: if the big fella on the right is 5ft 9, then yeah he can look over 6ft 2 in that clip.

I was waiting for you to put on a comment like this to be quite honest, what I mean is that I had a feeling you would. Sandy is a nice person and a friend, nothing more. In fact Arthur I am not going to answer your comments any more, you are acting like an anti person trying to wind people up like this and you are enjoying it.

Connor, why do you even answer to Arthur? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Don't you understand that he's deliberately trying to make you mad and you're doing exactly what he wants you to do? He knows how "sensitive" you are about your height, so, since he doesn't know what to say, he just calls you "5'11, 5'11.5, 5'11.75"... 😊
Be smarter than that and ignore him! He probably has no friends and never gets attention (in real life), so he tries to seek it on here! πŸ‘ That's the only thing he seems to be doing here... Because, as for the main topic of this site (which should be in fact trying to figure out how tall celebrities are, as its name suggests), he kinda sucks! πŸ’©πŸ˜
Nik and Sandy, it is true that you guys write a lot on this page (and probably about things that have nothing to do with height at times) but, as long as you write on this page, it really shouldn't be a problem! If people are not interested in what you want to say, they can just skim past them! It shouldn't be a big problem! No offence or anything but it wouldn't be a bad idea if you really exchanged your emails and talk to each other, whenever you want! Again, I don't care about it, you two seem really nice people! 😘 You might go a bit off topic at times but again... what's supposed to be the actual topic of this page? Just let it go 😎

Editor Rob: this page has more leeway than others, I don't mind the odd diversion...

who am I kidding 😝 the topic of this page is Simply that I get to look at my stats now and again and think to myself that over 10 years on

"I'm more popular than Barrack Obama, Matt Damon and Justin Timberlake..."

Eat that Obama! 😍 be fair I'm only ahead by 7000 views on Obama, but still, 357,000 views on this page in 10 years is a lot!

Luckily my ego isn't too big...every time I update the Top 50 Height page, I have to be sure I remove MY page from the list πŸ˜‚ 😈

@ Yes yes @ James B. I was just sitting here watching the American television program "Good Morning America." They described Italy as the healthiest country due to their Mediterranean diet rich in vegetables and olive oil. This program stated a child born in Italy today could expect to live into their 80's. This makes me question the accuracy of @ Yes yes's statement about an infant born in his country having a life expectancy of 100. If I would have thought it through, I would have realized that was a little too ambitious. I am so sorry to be a "downer." I am sure life expectancies of people born during certain years in different countries can be Googled. As an aside, I used to work as a court reporter/stenographer. We once had a civil case where someone was being sued for causing someone's death...possibly in a car accident. I forget the details. We had an "actuary" come to court and testify what this person's life expectancy would have been and what their income potential would have been had they not died in order for The Court to determine what monetary compensation, if any, should be awarded.

Also Arthur i dont need to blame my genes because i am close enough to claim 6ft plus i am a good 6ft for most of the day, i know you are trying to troll me anyway its clearly obvious because im no where near 5ft 11 let alone only 5ft 11.75.

Youre jealous dont deny it you so are because you post the same bleeding comments over and over again that im not the height i say i am and always wanting to downgrade me all the time youre pathetic! lol change the f**king record youre boring.
James B said on 20/Mar/17
Rob do you agree with me that 6ft5-6ft6 range is a better representation of what a very tall man should look like compared to say 6ft3 or 4?
Editor Rob: nobody is going to argue when somebody says a 6ft 5 guy is very tall...some might argue if you said a 6ft 3 man was very tall.

For me, the 6ft 4 range is enough to stand out as very tall.
Sandy Cowell said on 20/Mar/17
@ Jacky - Hi again! I must say I did like your last comment!
I feel that your time is now of great importance and go ahead and make yourself heard! At 23, I wasn't being educated anymore. However, you are and you must enjoy yourself, you youngster, you! Also, make your feelings felt! You HAVE got something to offer!
πŸ‘ I think you're cool!
Sandy Cowell said on 20/Mar/17
@ Nik - Hi again! Hey, what you've just said brought back so many memories of coming back from holiday with my Mum and brother! We too would leave as early as possible to avoid the traffic. I was still a teenage kid then, but it seems like yesterday!

My Dad just phoned up, interrupting the proceedings! I think he was watching 'The Chase' because that is all I could hear! Oh, I see! He's sent me a text and phoned by mistake, not for the first time, either!

Well, I went along to check out this Burgess fellow and indeed, he looks nothing like 6ft5! No way! I don't know who he is either but I left a comment nonetheless! It's a bit of a silly one, involving what sprang into my mind when I saw the word ANTS! Yes, height can be more deceptive than I ever thought possible - that is until I came here and started looking at pictures of people of differing heights! One of my recent postings was about Brian Thompson from the 'X' Files and he looks nearer the 6ft5 than Dominic Burgess! (Brian is one of the shape-shifting aliens and he is huge and threatening with it!) Then I heeded your advice and went on a little search round of the website, finding to my delight a whole page filled with 'X' Files stars! Take a look at him Nik! He looks about 6ft4!

Now I'm going to bounce about a bit from comment to comment! You mentioned something in one of your posts about there being a possibility of data pools existing somewhere in the universe for each of us. I am extremely open-minded to everything, and I dismiss nothing! Do I believe in the afterlife? Yes! Have I had proof? I have, and it is beautiful and non-scary! My Mum said that there were things in this life that we aren't supposed to know, but being the curious and dominant species, we do nurture an almost painful need to find out what some consider 'super' natural but what is, in fact, quite natural but beyond our comprehension!
I don't mind chatting about strange phenomenon at all!

Have you seen the film 'The Mothman Prophesies'? Check it out as it is based on fact! It is actually what I couldn't resist writing about when I arrived at Richard Gere's page. He's due another write-up from me...

I am amused at the thought of having submitted 1,200 comments! Thank you very much Rob because I have now been saved an awful lot of work! Do you know that I keep finding write-ups for people that I hadn't accounted for? I jot them all down in my new little scrap book and now I think I must be approaching 780 different people!

You must have read Nik, how well Connor has done to reach his target weight! That is ON TOP OF already having lost weight! I think he deserves an enormous round of applause and if getting fit and healthy is an offshoot of, I think Rob should be very proud!

I wish you a fantastic week as I sit here with a bunch of hungry cats awaiting feeding time and not really giving a toss about what I am writing about!

Cheers my friend! πŸ‘
Editor Rob: 12st 2 is quite a trim weight for an big six footer...I'm still between 12 and 13st myself, but I'm losing weight at a slow pace.

@ Connor - Hi! I believe congratulations are due your way! You've made it down to 12st2! I think that's fabulous! While there is little we can to alter our genes and height especially past a certain age, we can always change our appearances for the better with a bit of effort on the diet and working out front!
I am genuinely pleased for you and I find that the way you went about achieving your goal, via the gym with experts to advise you throughout your journey, particularly commendable! WELL DONE! πŸ’ͺπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ†

I can't remember when was the last time I laughed so hard at a comment Connor. I got nothing to apologise for. I'd love to see you banning me from the site πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Hey Connor, If you ever buy a stadiometer, make sure it's the same model as Rob's, so with the 1/8 inch error you will finally be able to measure a flat 6 foot at your low and finally be happy 😊

I think you should also make your genes apologise to you for not getting you to the full 6 feet mark !! πŸ˜‚

Nik said on 20/Mar/17
Hi Connor,

Thanks for your comments in support of Sandy and myself. Like you said a large body of our messages concerns either height or making the most of this website, yes we do talk about other things but I think there is nothing wrong with that as they don't dominate our messages. I think it's great that some of the regular uses can get to know each other a bit and this page gives us the opportunity to do that as well as talking about height.

Also have you got a stadiometer for your flat yet?

CS said on 20/Mar/17
Rob if I'm around 180.5 cm at my usual low and I said I'm 5'11.5 to people would you consider me a liar?
Editor Rob: for a portion of the day you are going to be that mark...

if you go with that 11.5, you might find not many people would think you were lying.
Delvin chung said on 19/Mar/17
Whats the average shoe size for a guy at 5'11 to 6ft range
Editor Rob: you'd expect a US 10-10.5 range.
Michael R said on 19/Mar/17
Rob what would you say the odds of a 16 year old growing 3 inches are? Is 2 guaranteed basically
Editor Rob: Michael, this is very possible...but on average you'd expect no more than 2 inches after turning 16. Get 3, and you've bet the average.
Salman said on 19/Mar/17
Rob, if I put a tape measure directly in front of my eyes and look in the mirror, how accurate of a measurement is that?

@Sandy Cowell

Hi Sandy

We.had a very good time in Whitby thank you, but now we are at home having got back late on Saturday morning. That morning my Mum got up at about 5:30 am and I woke up at just after 6.00 am so I decided to get up as we usually make an early getaway when we are coming home from our holiday.. One of the first things I did after getting out of bed was to switch my ipad on and go onto, I was amazed that Rob had already a number of comments since I last looked late on Friday night! I find this amazing to be honest, especially on a Saturday as well. I don't know whether he got up extra early to work on the site or whether he worked through the night on it, but is incredible whatever.

In your last posting to me you said that you don't normally write something on the page of a celebrity unless you know something about them, that is unless they stand out in their picture, well I felt compelled to make a comment on the Dominic Burgess page even though I don't really know anything about him. I don't know whether you have ever visited his page Sandy but there is no way that this guy looks 6'5"' based on his photograph, he looks way way shorter and as well as myself Rampage made a comment about this. It just shows how deceptive heigjht can be!

You have also told me that you have commented on 762 different celebrities, that is an amazing number but like you have said the real number of comments you have made will be much higher as you will have made more than one comment on some of the celebrities' pages. You have also made several comments on the "Rob Paul" page and on the "Height Requests" page, and 3 comments on the "General Height" page too! I would imagine that overall there is a good chance that you have made over 1000 comments on this site!

As I said in my last post I always watch countdown everyday, whether it be on channel 4 at the normal time, on channel 4 +1 about an hour later, or a recorded version from the sky planner. Unlike you I have never watched it when it is shown on a morning although I did know that repeats were on during this part of the day. I prefer the numbers rounds the most but that is probably because ithis is what I am best at! I have always been good at mental arithmetic and I am better at it than anything else! - I am not so good at many things though to be truthful! Overall I am fairly good at the words rounds on countdown, I am a bit up and down with the words as often I can score as highly as possible or find good words from difficult selections but other times I get stumped and can only come up with 4 or 5 letter words when I should be doing a little bit better!

Yes I do feel taller at Whitby or in the area that I live than in southern England for instance so I imagine that there will be a North/ South divide in terms of height. Many people will feel differently about their height depending on which part of the country they spend most of their time, the same may be true for you Sandy. I will tell you where you would feel the tallest Sandy, that is in Guatemala where the average height for women is the lowest in the world at about 4'10". There are quite a few oountries in the world where the average for women is less than what your height is.

I hope you have a great week, Good bye for now.
Editor Rob: from a quick check I could tell you Sandy has put up 1200 comments.
Justbringit said on 19/Mar/17
So rob when someone talks about generally shrinkage it basically depends on the height of the person right? I mean there could potentially be like a couple of mm difference if one guy is a few inches taller than the other right?
Editor Rob: it can depend on that, it will be a factor (the length of spine), but other factors as I mentioned could effect shrinkage.

Csimpson 6ft said on 19/Mar/17
@Sandy Cowell oh i forgot to tell you Sandy i have finally achieved my goal of slimming down to 12 stone 2lbs, i got weighed at the gym and i do martial arts there aswell im also trying weights but im not planning to get buff just staying slim but tone up a bit i hope i lose my man boobs aswell which is my main goal at the moment and im hoping it will happen if i keep doing lots of chest exercises but if they still dont flatten its probably gynecomastia which ill then have to have surgery to get rid of them, anyway yes 12 stone 2lbs is definitely a good weight for my height at 6ft i look nice and slim now, thanks for recommending me to dip to that low i will definitely stick with the 12 stones range thanks Sandy and of course you too Rob for advising me to stay in that range!.
Matt said on 19/Mar/17
Rob I wake up at around 5'9.5/75 in the morning then drop down to 5'9.25 at around 12:30 then 5'9 in the evening. I'm being honest sometimes I can drop like 3mm below 5'9 so 175cm but that's really late at night and that I've really worked my spine. Can I claim 5'9? I always measure 5'9 anyways during late evenings.
Editor Rob: yes Matt, saying 5ft 9 is very reasonable.
Blake said on 19/Mar/17

Arthur said on 19/Mar/17
Hi 5ft 11.75 Connor. I love how you are saying I am not being nice and civil when you are calling me an asshole. I also like how editor Rob allows that kind of comments here. It's just so funny. The only ''insult'' I have said about you is that you are a weak 6 footer. Which is true.

Don't worry Sandy, I ain't reading spam comments.
Editor Rob: we don't need insults...we can have a joke now and then, although with written humour, sometimes it sounds funnier in our heads than on paper!
Sandy Cowell said on 19/Mar/17
@ Connor - Hi Connor! I totally agree that it is not compulsory to read anything! You should read only what you fancy reading! I wonder if he read my last comment to Nik twice because it went up twice?
Anyway Connor, have a good week! I hope you are well! 😊
Jacky Huynh said on 19/Mar/17
@Sandy, I have a couple classmates in their early 20s that are still rather douchy. Everyone matures at different paces. My douchy phase ended when I was only 21. I have been told a number of times that I am fairly mature compared to most of my peers.

I'll try to enjoy this year as much as I can.
Matthew said on 19/Mar/17
Hey Rob! My dad was 5'9.5 as his night height 177cm, he is now 50 and has shrunk a bit, he has alright posture and his diet is okay, but he drinks more than you should do. Is it possible for him to lose 2 inches? I am 5'9 dead and he seems 0.5-1inch smaller than me when I stand next to him but I feel he sometimes only looks an 1 inch taller than my 5'7 brother.
Editor Rob: Matthew, some people are susceptible to shrinking through poor diet (effecting bone density), excessive wear & tear/injuries accelerating shrinkage.
Nik said on 19/Mar/17

Also I have noticed a mistake in the last "essay" I sent to you (as Arthur put it) which is me saying that Stephen Lewis was about 2 inches taller than today's young men, 3 inches I should have said! Great actor and person, and good at playing the part of miserable characters! - in "On the Buses" and "Last of the Summer Wine" anyway.

Hey Rob, what was the version of the Asics shoes that you had on the sneakers page and the ones that you made a video with to see how much they give?
oscar 5'9 said on 19/Mar/17
hi Rob! if there is a person the same height as you lets say you are 5'8 the other guy is 5'8 too standing face to face. would it look like they are taller or shorter than you?
Editor Rob: oscar, it can depend on a few factors.

generally if they have same posture and thickness of hair, it will to most people who look, seem identical...but if one has better posture, higher shoulder/chin/eyelevel or thicker hair, this throws people and can confuse us.
VeryShortRussianDude said on 18/Mar/17
Rob, I was measured today for the first time in about 3 years at 175.2 (shocked) in worn Timberland boots at the doctors after being up for roughly 5 hours, so what could be my possible barefoot height? how much height do timberland boots actually give you?
Editor Rob: you could be 5ft 7.5 range.
CS said on 18/Mar/17
Rob, say you have a teenager, at what amount of growth would he be able to tell he grew taller without measuring? Would he be able to feel taller if he grew a 1/4 inch or would it have to be closer to an inch? Just curious.
Editor Rob: CS, I feel a half inch might begin to be more noticeable if they really are paying attention.

@Nik take no notice mate just ignore him at least you and Sandy are interesting and nice people and you both do mostly talk about height on here anyway, i think it is ok to talk about other things on here like films, games or something else etc as long as the subject isnt inappropriate and is in moderation but yes even though arthur is being an a$$hole i can see where hes coming from this site is about height but as i said as long as you only talk about different subjects in moderation then thats perfectly fine.

I know what you mean though Nik arthur doesnt have to read your comments no one is forcing him to but yes if he cant be nice and be civil with everyone then it would be best for him to keep his mouth shut.

Rob, is the vertical growth rate of 1 cm per year too slow at the age of 12-17? That is my rate, although at 13 I did maybe gained 2 cm

You really went out on a limb to write that and I, and I have no doubt whatsoever, Nik, are extremely grateful!
Yesterday I did another posting to Nik fairly early on in the morning before going back to sleep! Then later I came back to Rob's page to do a couple more and my comment was still there from 2-3 hours before. I sent it off again and, to quote something that Rob said recently, I 'laughed like a hyena' at the thought of the possibility of it going up twice! It DID go up twice!
Thank you once again and have a great weekend Sam! πŸ‘

Why do you have to keep coming on this page trying to wind people up? If you don't want to read our comments then don't bother, skim past them and jog on to somewhere else.

@ Shredder - Hi! Yes, I can tell from what you call yourself that you're full of fun!
One of my best friends ever is a Gemini called Mick! I was 18 when I first bumped into him and he 32! He's retired now and living by the sea with his wife and probably having a great time as he loves the seaside. We went with a bunch of others to Cornwall one year, did rock climbing and drank cider every night! It was enormous fun! We camped out in someone's garden!
Mick was then 5ft6 and a half of sheer Gemini dynamite, but he never seemed short to me! I've got other Gemini friends, men and girls, and they all have a terrific sense of fun! That is something they all have in common!
Have a great weekend Shredder, get out and about and enjoy being yourself! I've just eaten 4 little clementine oranges and I feel full of energy after fruit-eating! It's a lovely feeling!
Cheers! πŸ…πŸ‡πŸ‹πŸπŸŠπŸ‰πŸ πŸ™‹

@ Jacky - Ha! My teenage douche years were still going on in my early 20's, I can tell you! I didn't leave school until I was 18 and a half so I had to do what most youngsters seem to be doing much earlier now! I was an incredible douche until 21/22 and then I slowly grew up!
It feels good when you can hold your head up at last because you believe in yourself and that only comes with time and practice! I'm glad you feel you've reached that point now! Have a super time! Enjoy that feeling - it's called 'being on top of the world!' 😊
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Mar/17
@ Nik - Hi once again Nik! I'm delighted to hear that you are enjoying your holiday with your Mum. Times like these become memories to treasure in years to come! I often think back to the holidays I had with my Mum, remembering, perhaps, a particularly funny incident, and then I can't stop laughing! Yes, make the most of these precious times you're having with her!

I finished my new scrapbook which is my revised record of how many celebrities I've covered now! I have counted up 762 different people and that doesn't include the comments that I have sent to Rob, to 'General Height' and to 'Height Requests' and many stars have more than one comment, so the real total is going to be MUCH higher! Thanks to your tips on customized searches, I might yet find out! I am very excited about 762 comments on 762 people (very minimum!), and then often the comments build up if someone adds a comment to yours and then you comment back! I think that's all part of the fun of visiting this website, the interaction with the other height/celeb fans! When I started coming here, it wasn't long before I decided to write down the celebs I've written about! Obviously, to cover them all would be impossible, as you can only write about the ones you know something about, unless they stand out in their pictures enough to create a reasonable comment! Of course, that happens quite a lot, especially with those on the 'latest height' pages.

I wouldn't be very good at sports stars so I tend to stick to TV and film-based people.
I'm glad that Rob has included people from back in time, like Napoleon Bonaparte! I actually thought he was smaller than the 5ft6 he was!

I noticed you left a comment for Susie Dent and then yesterday I read that you make 'Countdown' part of your day! I like to watch it myself, and if I miss either of the daytime showings, then it will be repeated in the morning! I'm fond of all shows that keep the mind active! I also like 'The Chase', which I know you watch too, '15 to 1', 'Eggheads' and many more! They really get the adrenalin going!

You mentioned something very interesting about heights varying according to which part of the country you are from! I wonder what dictates that, and whether people are taller in richer parts of the country where poverty is not rife and where employment is easier to find? I think that is one possible explanation, but whatever the reasons are, it would make a watchable TV programme, don't you think! The insurance companies must have thorough records of people's height and weight, so that would be a good place to start! I found it rather amusing that you feel taller round Whitby in comparison to the other guys! I wonder if I'd experience that in any part of this country or whether I'd have to travel to China to feel good about my height - ha ha! I think I'll have to be reliant on shoes for the moment, though!

Enjoy yourself this weekend Nik! I hope you and your Mum have had a grand week! Bye for now! πŸ™‹

Rob, is eye level really as perceptive as you say it is? Let's say I have an eye level that is above average, 4.87 inches. I have a friend whose eye level is bang on average, at 4.5 inches. I'm an inch taller than him, equal footwear, posture, etc., standing straight. Doing the math (4.87 - 4.5= 0.37 inches. 1 inch- 0.37= 0.62 inches), would he see me as being only 5/8th of an inch taller than him and not the actual full inch difference? Vice-versa..
Editor Rob: bax, when it becomes a quarter inch it can start to have an effect, when it's near half inch, it's a much more noticeable advantage (or disadvantage).

In person it is easier to tell if someone has a high or low when it is nearer 4 or 5 inch, 99% fall inside that zone.
Ely said on 17/Mar/17
From what I can see, Rob has longer upper body vs legs. I mean his inseam is around 30-30.5 inches I think, thus his torso isn't short for sure. 91-93 cm sitting height
Sandy Cowell said on 16/Mar/17
@ Arthur - Hello again Arthur! I have done some thinking about what you said about the off-topic 'essays' that you have found to not be to your liking! Please don't put the blame on Nik, as it is me who goes off on a tangent a great deal of the time.
Like you, I read most of the comments, and there are few people on this site as interested in height as Nik! I am the one who has been waffling on about other things, but even then, they are related to theories based on height, for instance astrology, history and TV programmes. All the TV programmes contain celebs and they all have a height! So what if we have enlarged upon a few particular people, like certain soap stars?
Please don't try to spoil the bit of fun and friendliness that is bound to develop on a height site frequented by people with a common interest.
Yours truly, Sandy Cowell.
Nik said on 16/Mar/17
Hello again Sandy,

Now onto my second posting. I had a break after doing my first posting and now I feel refreshed and ready to finish of what I was going to say. You mentioned in your last post about Kiefer Sutherland and his Dad Donald Sutherland, did you know that Donald Sutherland has got 3 other sons and a daughter? Kiefer Sutherland and his sister Rachel are also twins. Only Donald and 2 of his children, Kiefer and Rossif, have pages on this site I think and Rossif Sutherland is a massive 6'5". He would certainly make me look very diddy!

Now onto the stars of "On the Buses", you said about Stephen Lewis's other acting roles but did you remember him playing the part of "Smiler" on "Last of the Summer Wine"? This was an apt name for this character because he was always miserable all the time! He has also played the part of a doorman, policeman, driving instructor, and bus driver throughout his acting career. Standing at a little bit under 6'1" Stephen Lewis will have towered over most men of his generation and my generation too. His height is still 2 inches above average for today's 20 and 30 something men! It is good that we still see Anna Karen on our screens, at 80 years of age she had obviously still got a great enthusiasm for acting and this is great to see. I don't know her height though, any ideas?

Have a great week.
justbringit said on 16/Mar/17
Also rob i think that i recall you saying that shrinkage depends a lot on your spine.Normally i would assume if let's say for example we take a 5ft8 and a 5ft11 man since the 5'11 guy will most likely have a longer spine would this mean that he will shrink a bit more? (assuming they both had similar activity on this day)
Editor Rob: yes, spine length could determine the chance of more shrinkage.

Other factors like hydration, age (the older the thinner and weaker the discs become), diet may also have some slight impacts.
Sam said on 16/Mar/17
I think as long as its not flooding the page, which is technically more than 500 words a comment if you think about how big Robs page is, then Sandy and Nik are allowed to comment on whatever they want is suitable as long as they stick to the rules and I've not heard from Rob or seen it myself that they are any sort of trouble so I think it should be ok. Most of the comments are about height so it takes zero effort to scroll up/down to the next comment if you'd rather ignore which anyone is entitled to do. Of course height is the main topic on here and always will be, but I don't think there's any harm in getting to know eachother either whether height or personality and makes the site more diverse. If it was on the Arnold Schwarzenegger page then would probably be a bit more random.
Editor Rob: there is a bit more leeway on my page of course.

About 1 in 18-20 visitors looks at the latest comments page and like 1 in 90 look at the rob page.
Sandy Cowell said on 16/Mar/17
@ Arthur - Hello! I try to keep my 'essays' to Nik as height-based as possible and to anyone else for that matter!
Maybe I should try a little harder or perhaps you should allow for a bit of fooling around.

Thanks again Sandy! I certainly feel more confident than I did even a year ago. Both my teenage years and 'douchy (well sorta) phase' have passed. I am a new me!

@Sandy Cowell

Hi Sandy,

My Mum and I are enjoying our holiday a lot thank you, I have mentioned to my Mum about you passing on your regards and she says thank you for that. During the day time we have gone into the new town to look around, do a little bit of shopping, have a coffee and something to eat. However we have got back for my daily dose of countdown (the one on channel 4 +1) for about ten past 3 in the afternoon. In the evenings I have visited celebheights and also watched the tv with my Mum, I enjoyed watching the FA cup match between Chelsea and Manchester United on Monday evening.

I am still learning how to search this site and I spend a little bit of my time each day experimenting with the custom search box. I have found a good way to bring up most of my past comments, what I did was go into the search box and type "Nik said on 21/Sep/16" if I wanted to bring up all my comments from that day. Make sure that the statement in the search box is enclosed in speech marks or it won't carry out the search properly. You also need to write out the search for your postings like you see that it is above any comment you make on this website, for example if you wanted to find all your comments from the 14th March 2017 you would put "Sandy Cowell said on 14/Mar/17" into the custom search box (don't forget the speech marks!) and press the search button. However if this seems long winded you could instead type in "Sandy Cowell said on *" and press the search button and hopefully that should bring up most of your comments. The first search method I described to you may be best for bringing up comments from individual dates if you happen to be curious about your postings on a certain day, or if you are trying to find out your first, or one of your first postings. There is one problem with these types of searches, they do not bring up any comments that you have made which are no longer visible on a current version of celebheights, so I will have to try and find out if there are any methods for bringing up postings that are no longer on the site any more.

I have not felt too small in Whitby! I don't know exactly how I would be considered in comparison to the other men about but I think I would be somewhere in the pack and of a regular sort of height, however when we went down south last year though I felt I was of a "classic short" height overall although I didn't feel as if I was stand out short by any means. Overall nationally I think that I am in the highest echelons of the short range or even maybe just under average/ shortish. I don't know about you Sandy but I am fascinated in the geography of UK height and if there is indeed a north/ south divide, I would also be interested in seeing a height map of the UK, if there is one that is.

Now onto what you said about genetics, me and my eldest brother Steve have always looked more like our Mum but my other brother, Mark has always looked like he is more of a mixture of both our parents. I think I got my height from my Dad! - or most of it anyway! My Dad was always average in height for his age and I am average in height for my age, with a bit chopped off that is, a 5cm bit, which is not overly large but would place me on of the very first few rungs of the small range! I think the things that make us how we are and who we are are a combination of family genetics (biology) and also physics, because I believe astrology and the position of the stars is a factor in determining some of the characteristics that we have. I know you think that this is true because you have said about your belief that people's star signs have an effect on their lives.
I also have another theory though which is my belief that there are data pools of information existing for each one of us somewhere in the universe. Once someone is born I believe that they are assigned the characteristics from their own pool, everybody's pool is different though and one persons pool may contain completely different characteristics to the ones owned by other members of their own family.

So that's the end of my first post for now, I have done it in 2 lots so you will see my next posting shortly. Bye for now.
Ely said on 16/Mar/17
Rob, how is that possible that at 20 o clock your height was 173.7 cm,while your out of bed height is 174.8? I think you was lying, relaxing on the couch before you measured yourself?
Editor Rob: at 6-6.30 would have had dinner and watched an episode of a show. Sometimes you can creep up a couple of mm. One thing, at home you can be more hydrated, which means sometimes you might not hit your low as if you were out working from 9-5.
Sandy Cowell said on 16/Mar/17
@ Connor - You're welcome! 😸
Harris said on 16/Mar/17
Rob, what was the purpose of your quote site?
Editor Rob: Harris, to provide entertainment/information and turn a profit.

In 2004 I was throwing a few sites up...

in the 3-4 months before celebheights I put up this one: Rental Reviews.

I did that one in June-July 2004...

While doing that I thought This site was going to eventually become big...I liked the name.

You can clearly see the similar layout/style, I basically repurposed some code/layout from those 2 sites for celebheights...both pre-dated celebheights a few months...

Not for a minute did I really think I'd still be doing Celebheights 13 years later 😲 😡 😳, I was hoping something like the movie Pitch idea would have went somewhere πŸ€‘πŸ€‘ :)

Actually just reading that archive, I'm still hoping for my Fear Nought premise to be made into a movie...πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

Good to see someone else is using the domain for another genre...

MrFish said on 16/Mar/17
Rob, why do you think Jenny loses more height during the day than you? She can lose over an inch, almost 1/4 inch more than you can lose. Is her torso longer in relation to yours?
Editor Rob: the discs ability to retain water will vary slightly, as will spine length, though ours are quite similar.
Grant said on 15/Mar/17
Hey Rob been a while, just out of curiosity whose height would you personally be most interest in measuring?
Editor Rob: at the moment, I would be interested in measuring Trump's current height, but would like to transport back 30 years and get Arnie and Sly under the stadiometer.
Matt said on 15/Mar/17
Rob I claim 12:30pm-1pm height, is that reasonable and honest enough? Only drop about 1.5cm max.
Editor Rob: yes, that is very fair.
Csimpson 6ft said on 15/Mar/17
To be fair Harris overall Rob is more like a just over 173cm guy than just 173 on the button i think right between 173 and 174 is more accurate for him so i think if Rob goes with 5ft 8 and 5/16 id say thats reasonable but yeah i agree with you about the average guess voting on robs page being pointless though as you said when everyone has seen his height measurement videos and we already know his height.
Ely said on 15/Mar/17
You are over 173 cm at night or 172.8? Assuming normal shrinkage you should be a little under 173 cm when being fully compressed when your out of bed height is 174.8 cm
Editor Rob: after a hard day I am still 173cm...on a good day out of bed I might brush 175cm.
Shredder said on 15/Mar/17
Rob I got a guy close to 5'8 when I measured him , but he looks only a strong 5'7 in general and another guy measured him barefoot in front of me and read 5'7.25. What height could the guy be?

It was a dodgy measurement I gave him though , like a Luke Perry style measurement.
Editor Rob: the more rough a measurement, the more room for error!

justbringit said on 15/Mar/17
hi rob also something i wanted to ask: Is it possible that you might measure a little shorter on very active days? like school days or similar if your spine is under stress and you have had a bad sleep? I am talking about a few mms here.
Editor Rob: yes, we have a potential to hit a slightly lower height if our bodies and spine is put through more activity, whether it is movement or weight-bearing movements.
Arthur said on 15/Mar/17
Rob, I feel that Sandy and Nik are getting off topic with their comments. Not only that, but they are writing essays to one another. It's not entertaining to read 500 word letters to a height website. We are here for just comments. If they want to correspond let them exchange e-mails or something.
Editor Rob: I can give it some leeway, if it's on the rob paul page.
Tunman said on 14/Mar/17
Rob,how tall do you think Diego forlan is?He's a uruguayan footballer listed at 180.Well I could be wrong but he seems about 175 max when comparing with Casillas or Luis Suarez.Again I find it quite surprising how some players are boosted by 2".
And what about David Trezeguet?he was listed at 187 but since you put Henry at 6'1.5" I'm gonna say perhaps 185-6 as he generally looked fractionally shorter.
Editor Rob: Forlan definitely can seem a pretty average guy.
oscar 5'9 said on 14/Mar/17
hi Rob! my lowest height is 5' 9 5/8s. i always say im 5'9 but if i were an actor should i claim 5'10 or 5'9?thanks!
Editor Rob: oscar, I feel your lowest is a bit too much for a straight round down, but I can understand not wanting to go with a half.
I do think saying 5ft 9.5 as an actor or even yourself would be a good thing.
George12 said on 14/Mar/17
Hi Rob, another question for you. I'd like to know your opinion on my general size as you're the same size virtually.
Height: 173/174cm
Wingspan: 174cm
Weight: 148lbs
Trouser size: 30inch waist 30inch leg
Shoe size: 8
Does all my stats seem pretty typical for a 5ft8 guy?

Thanks Rob
Editor Rob: you are on the slimmer side of the line if 148 and 30 inch waist. You may well appear a bit taller to some people due to slimness factor.
Ely said on 14/Mar/17
Rob, I regain 0.5-0.7 cm just from sitting, not even lying. How could you explain this? I measure myself daily when back from university and then after an hour sitting in front of computer. This pattern repeats all the time.
Editor Rob: you might have reached near your low through activity. Walking, standing and moving during the day has put you towards your low. If you sit down or relax your discs may not be under as much strain, so can recuperate slightly.
Leo2001 said on 14/Mar/17
At some point in your life, you thought you were taller than 5 feet 8?
Editor Rob: I've never thought that! I was pretty accurate with any measurement, so knew that I was taller earlier in the day and near 5ft 8 at dinner time.
Ben said on 14/Mar/17
Is it good that when you stretch your neck and back that it makes the crack sound?
I usually stretch it out to it's almost maximum and it makes the crack sound and after that I feel a little bit taller.

Is that good? :)

Editor Rob: it certainly would fit a 7 footer who was 350 pounds!

Put it on a 5ft 10 man and it will be like a tent.
Willy230 said on 13/Mar/17
Hi Rob!
I'm 177'5-177,7 cm at morning out of bed, 2 hours later I'm 176,5 cm and drop to exact 176 evening. Before bed I'm 175,6 cm and my absolute low is 175,4cm (16 hours after outofbed). What Should I claim in cm? You think I'm a strong 176cm ? Am I 5'9'5? Thank you
Editor Rob: claiming 176 seems perfect...but with feet/inches, just over 5ft 9, similar to Casper Van Dien, he came out with 5ft 9 and 1/4, it's good to see a celebrity giving a proper fraction and they ain't lying about it.
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Mar/17
@ Rob - That was my fault! I asked Connor for his birthday, though the year didn't need to come into it!

@ Connor - You are a young Sagittarius man if you were born from the 23rd Nov - 22nd Dec (approx), as sometimes people born on 22nd December are considered Capricorns!
That makes you extrovert, friendly and fond of travelling!
You get on well with the other fire signs Leo and Aries and also with Aquarians, like me!
You are generous, and that can sometimes be your undoing!
Cheers Connor, πŸ™‹ the Sagittarian!
Editor Rob: it's not really a fault of anybody's, just that some information we should be cautious about giving out, especially if you are using your real name on the web 🀝 πŸ‘
CD said on 13/Mar/17
Rob do you think it's common for feelings towards height to change? I used to feel really self-conscious about being short which started in childhood, and a few years ago was obsessed about reaching a taller height, but now I feel pretty content at being 5ft 5 and seem to have accepted it.
Editor Rob: CD, yes, our opinions and feelings on all sorts of subjects can change.

When it comes to height, it is fabulous that you are accepting. We, like actors, come in all shapes in sizes. Ultimately, how you are as a person and what you contribute through life is far more important than how tall the top of your head is off the ground...
Csimpson 6ft said on 13/Mar/17
Ok Rob i wont post personal info on here anymore
Harris said on 13/Mar/17
Rob, how could the average guess be nearly 174, when you yourself have your precise measurements at the top of the page, and had shown us numerous times with videos what you measure throughout the day? What's the point of having an average guess here, Lol what if someone clicks on 5ft 6 just for fun or to take the p**s?
Editor Rob: a few have clicked that figure, but hey, if I am letting actors heights have a running public guess, why not let anybody have a guess here...

even our dear friend Big G is more than welcome to drop by once a year, furiously select 5ft 6 from the dropdown menu, smash the submit button with all his might and then laugh like a hyena.
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Mar/17
@ Rob - Hello! I've just been going through your page when I came across a reply of yours to a comment from Ely (dated 9th March).
I'll reiterate:
"I'll treat the 5ft2 man the same as the 6ft2 man...but if the 6ft2 man claims 6ft4 and the 5ft2 man 5ft2, I'll know which guy I'm going to trust more..."
I think there's a lesson in that for all of us! Your reply had an almost parable-like quality and I liked it very much!
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Mar/17
@ Josh b - Thanks for your communication from the 9th March! It was great to hear from you!
It is good to know there are people out there sending photos and quotations in! I wouldn't even know how to do it, unless by snail mail, and that's very 20th century now! I'm still figuring out the internet!
As for your welcome, a great big 'thank you' from me! I do feel welcome on this website! That is one of the best things about it, apart from its interesting subject and people!
Bye for now! πŸ™‹
Arthur said on 13/Mar/17
Rob, I had an X-ray of my neck taken back in the summer of 2014, because of a problem I had. I had already turned 19 years old at that time. Next summer I was hitting the gym almost every day and having the healthiest diet I can remember and as result I grew almost 1 cm, something between 0.7-0.9 cm. I always wandered whether my posture improved or if I actually grew. I recently showed that X-ray of 2014 to another doctor for my neck pains, and he commented without me asking him that the Epiphyseal plates were still open at the time of the X-ray, he thought that was uncommon. So I did grow back then. It's strange though, because I barely managed to get 1 cm, when my growth plates were open for a very long time without any growth. I stood 176.5 cm a couple of months before my 15th birthday. I stayed the same until my 17th birthday. Somewhere between 17-18 years old I got another cm and reached 177.5 cm. Then there was absolutely nothing for 2 years (I started to keep regular track of my height when I was 18 and 177.5 cm) until my 20th birthday. 4 months after that, thanks to the excercise and healthy diet, I reached the height I am now, a little over 178 cm at my low.
Don't you think that's a strange pattern? And do you think there is a chance my growth plates are still open? I am turning 22 in 2 months. You may be too bored to read this though lol.
Editor Rob: growth will slow down in late teens, so there will be a time a final little bit occurs, sometimes it's discovered, other times it's not even noticed, especially 0.5-1cm.

But, it may also be a slight improvement of your spine...given what you said about the 2 years of stable height, then the exercise routine, I'd say that might have been the factor.

I've read a few people past the stages of any type of bone growth to claim to have grown an inch or something through's not so much normal growth, more of maximising their bodies inbuilt potential.

@ Nik - Hello Nik and Happy Holidays to you! I hope you are enjoying your break at Whitby and come back feeling refreshed and energized. I think it's great that you go on holiday with your Mum; she is so lucky to have a boy like you, and I'm sure she knows that full well!
Last night I watched a film with my brother entitled 'Last Light'. It was a sad tale about a young, intelligent man on death row, whose original reason for being sent to a detention centre at 14 was because he was caught shoplifting. He had no rehabilitation and had gone on to kill whilst incarcerated instead of getting a listening ear and be made to feel useful and wanted.
The character was played by Keifer Sutherland, who directed the movie, and it also starred Forest Whitaker as a troubled and 'haunted-from-his-past' family man who is working as a prison guard, and they strike up a sort of friendship.
While watching the film, of course I took in the heights of Forest, Clancy Brown (his superior officer) and Keifer. Both Forest and Clancy towered over Keifer, being both well in access of 6ft each to Keifer's, I'd estimate, 5ft9, but what I found really enchanting was watching Forest with his little son, who was so like him in miniature, it was hard to believe they weren't real father and son! I forgot to check at the end when the credits came up, but I can still do that. I thought "aren't genetics incredible!" and as I am always on the look out for exciting things to discuss, I believe for a height site, genetics is a smashing subject as we don't just get our height from our genes! We get our colouring, our personalities, EVERYTHING from them! Another contributing factor is that I was awestruck at how alike Keifer and Dad Donald are! They are like two peas in a pod - but one is of average height and the other very tall - on par with Forest and Clancy, with whom Keifer starred! There is a scene at the beginning of the film where the two authority figures are walking behind prisoner Keifer, discussing what he had done, and although they both look about half a foot taller, you realize that Keifer is nobody to be messed with!
The film got to me in two different ways. The first was how sad and unnecessary it was that a young fellow was never given the chance to be rehabilitated back into society and the second, and nicer impression was the thought- provoking subject of genes, what with a real life father and son to think about and also a fictitious pair!
My brother gets his looks from my Mum and I from my Dad, but my eldest half-brother, Nicholas, also gets his looks from my Dad! It was so funny the first time we met, as he looked more like me than my full brother!
On the rather vast subject of internet searches, how are you getting on with finding your first postings? I have tried to keep a reasonable record of the celebrities I've covered. I have them listed alphabetically instead of 'girls' and 'boys' (funny!) as I do in the case of my film records, but my little book has become so full now that I've found it necessary to begin a new book! What you said prompted me into starting it last night! I'd been putting it off long enough! I covered right up to the 'H's', and started the 'J's' with Samual L Jackson, but then I just had to go to sleep! I am looking forward to finding out how many posts I've done! It will only be approximate, as I've done more than one for many people and I don't know how many I've sent Rob's way, but with the customized searches you've introduced me to, I live in hope that I will find out! I am very excited about it actually! I read a letter from Blake asking Rob how many he had posted and the answer was over 100. My result is a few fold of that - probably in excess of 700 or so!
When I've had my cup of tea, I'll continue and also see what 'Inspector Morse' is getting up to this morning, observing the heights of the guest stars along the way, as is now my custom!
I haven't discussed the stars of 'On the Buses' yet, have I Nik? Yes, it's sad that there is only one still with us, Anna Karen, who now appears spasmodically in 'EastEnders' and eerily predicted the Mitchell sisters' demise with her tarot cards! Stephen Lewis continuud acting as well and had a little part as a pesky law enforcement officer hunting for men slacking off from fighting in the war in the great 1991 film 'The Krays'!
As far as the predictions of Nostradamus are concerned, I avoid reading them now! They scared me so much that it was the only wise thing to do! One spring day nearly six years back, I was sitting on a church bench on a day that the world was supposed to end when I thought, "Sod this! I'm going to buy a kitten!" So I bought three and placed my Nostradamus books angrily in the dustbin!
Now I live for the day, so to speak!
Have a smashing holiday with your Mum! Do send her my regards! Bye bye for now! πŸŒ…πŸšπŸ‘πŸ˜Š πŸŒ…πŸšπŸ‘πŸ˜Š πŸŒ…πŸšπŸ‘πŸ˜Š πŸŒ…πŸšπŸ‘πŸ˜Š

How do i put the red line like yu do on pics ? Is there a app for it ?
Editor Rob: Like height lines? If so, those have to be scaled in something like photoshop based on my own head as the reference basically.
oscar 5'9 said on 12/Mar/17
hi Rob! do you agree with measuring height with back against the wall? i get minus half inch with back againsts wall. i get higher measurement with face facing wall.
Editor Rob: Oscar, if you get a different value, it means one of two things.

1. You are standing better one way compared to the other.

2. The floor/wall isn't as straight, so standing with heels nearer/further is causing the fraction difference.

If you put your bum/upper back against a wall, sometimes that will alter the natural shape of the spine and undermeasure a fraction.
James B said on 12/Mar/17
Rob I started posting on celeb heights since December 2006

Are there lots of others poster on here so who have been using this site longer than me?
Editor Rob: I remember Mr. R and Dmeyer from December 2004.

From 2005 I recall Lmeister, parker, xaoxio, leonari, MD, viper (still around), Danimal to name a few.

2006, I remember you, guys like big alex too from that year, although I think he's moved on now.

It happens, people move on, lose interest in subjects, feel they've read/seen enough, find other forms of entertainment that are more enjoyable etc.

I do appreciate all the visitors, those who stay a long while, and those who may pass by for a brief stay...the site is collaborative and we're all trying to figure the best guesses for these celebs.

I'm not going to pull an imdb any time soon and disable and remove comments! While I understand why big sites have done it, you can't shift the type of conversations to twitter/facebook that imdb's message boards the same manner I feel having the conversation about heights being on this site, not some random social platform that has little benefit to me.

And I'm sure a few old timers who have gone beyond the rim and never returned to the site would be surprised it is still going and that I'm still here. I remember I told people back in 2005 that I thought 5 years would be long enough for me, but plans change...I have tried to make the site a good resource on height and even though I might not agree with celebs, if we can find their quote and mention it, I feel that offers visitors the chance to see what the celeb claims.

Hi Rob , i just turned 20 years old in January and im 175 cm (5'9") tall. I know im definitely not tall , but how would I fare amongst other people of the young generation ( people around 20-30 years old) would i be short , below average or average ?
Editor Rob: sully, in Europe, typically it is still under average a bit for the 20 year old male.
Matt said on 12/Mar/17
Rob the end of my head was at eye level of a 6'2-3 guy, how tall would I be roughly?
ma said on 12/Mar/17
Hi rob, i m 180 cm now; when i Did my Id I was 172 cm and I put 178 cm with the hope of being at least that tall ( I was 14 )...
Now i would like to change document but someone maybe could be angry to create a new document only for 2 cm?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't worry about it, but it's maybe best asking whoever issues the document. Send them an email first and ask if it costs anything to get the id reissued.
Blake said on 11/Mar/17
Rob, would you be able to tell me how many comments I have submitted to the site? I first posted sometime in 2015 I believe
Editor Rob: Over 100.

Probably not as many as you'd have thought!

I don't know how many I've replied, but it will be probably about 50,000 over the years
imnottellingmyheighttill18 said on 11/Mar/17
Rob, if I drink 2 liters of water, should I be taller than other day without drink any, at my night lowest height?
Editor Rob: mate, if you drink 2 litres of water, just make sure you know where all the public bathrooms are, because you'll be making 4 trips in the next 90 minutes!

If you drink regular, like 8 glasses a day then you are ensuring your body is well hydrated and there is better odds of measuring a bit taller than on days you didn't drink as much. The body will use water from soft tissues, so extreme dehydration will effect discs and you might end up with extreme low measurements if you become dehydrated.
Sandy Cowell said on 11/Mar/17
@ Sam re: your comment dated 8th March.

My, Sam, that made for funny reading! I don't know anyone (yet!) who's 'embellished' his or her height by a whopping 4 inches, or even 3, but I would certainly like to! What fun it would be reasoning with such a character!

@ Rob - I liked your reply, 'in the business of lying' (acting!). That was beautifully put!
andre said on 11/Mar/17
Rob most people here in the website thinks the height is with shoes can you write on your website that the heights are without shoes ?

Editor Rob: andre, it is listed in the footer of every page on the site and has been for a very long time.

Rob where would a 5'9 man be on a 6ft man?
Editor Rob: Matt, you'd expect with a perfect photo for the eyes of the 5ft 9 man to be around the mouth of the 6ft fella and for him to look say an inch above his eyebrows.

I do think we should just stick with one unique makes it simpler and I value honesty.

Hi Sandy,

Yes it's great to make the most of this website and carry out searches to bring up previous postings. However I am not sure how far you will be allowed to go back when you do customised searches, that is something I am going to look into because I would love to be able to access all my past postings and I am still on my quest to find my first comment on this site, this is because I have found out that since I last wrote to you I have posted on this website prior to commenting on Samantha Giles' Page. I am pretty sure my first comment was around last September but exactly when I am not sure. I don't know about you but I would love to know who was the first person to ever comment on this site and what they actually said, to see a flashback to the very first day and see everything on this site would be great but I know it is not possible, and if it was I doubt Rob would have time! Running a busy website everyday will not be easy.

Learning how to do different types of searches may be beneficial to you then Sandy so that you can research the Internet as thoroughly as possible. I have used the Internet on and off over the last 20 or so years but I am not that knowledgeable about it to be honest and I do not know an awful lot about computing either, some of the youngsters today are way ahead of me in all this.

Like you, it was terrible when I first heard that Jack from "On the Buses" had taken his own life and I too would hate to have a life that is highly pressurised and under the microscope continuously. I have loved seeing repeats of "Om the Buses" on sky over the last 10 years, it was one of the greatest sitcoms that there has ever been. I seem to think that the Inslector was tall where as Stan was quite small, Jack I think was in between, may be about average. They were all great actors and actresses though so it hardly matters about any of their heights.

You said about English grammar being non existent and that is true but youngsters now are also not encouraged to practise mental arithmetic either these days like they were when I was younger,, members of the younger generation are not as up on Geography either as they once where either and this just shows how times have changed. I am not saying that there is anything wrong with modern learning but I do think that it should be complimented by the things mentioned. It's incredible that your Mum learnt 5 languages, there must have been a lot to take in!

I wouldn't worry about what Nostradamus has said before, I guess at the end of the day astrology is a branch of physics and even the best physicists of all time have got things wrong and have not understood certain aspects of the subject very well.

Like you said maybe the Chinese really don't give a hoot about height with them not providing many visitors to this site. It is interesting to know what the average height of Chinese men and women is as China is the most populated country in the world with approximately 1.4 billion residents, well I would say that the average height of Chinese men appears to be in the 5'5.75" - 5'6.25" range and I am confident that it is probably near the bottom of this range and is at about the 5'5.75" level. For Chinese women I reckon the average height is between about 5'1.25" - 5'1.5", I have read it could be a little bit higher but I doubt it as it would be too near the average for men, it could foreseeably be about 5'2" but that is the maximum I would say.
It is interesting because although China is a country with shorter than average people globally the tallest verified woman ever, Zeng Jinlian, was Chinese and she stood at about 8'1.75" prior to her death in the 1980's. Not only that but 2 other Chinese women were amongst the 7 verified tallest women of all time,
I am going away with my Mum tomorrow to Whitby for a week, like with Connor Simpson, going on holiday will not stop me visiting celebheights..

Have a great weekend.
Editor Rob: Nik, the Chinese love to visit this's just not to read about height, but to try to hack ? to be fair I don't think anybody is going to guess the password being BigGwasmeasured5foot8 or TomCruiseis178cm ;)

Russia has moved up a bit since the elections with intrusion attempts, but China/Vietnam still lead the way.

Gladstone Screwer said on 10/Mar/17
Rob, could you let me know if I'm blacklisted please, only none of my comments are appearing lately. I don't feel I've insulted anyone, maybe a few quips is all. If you can confirm, just so as I don't waste time commenting.
Cheers, Gladstone.
Editor Rob: if you stick to one name and stop with sexist comments, then it's all good.

there's a line between being funny and insulting towards celebs.
imnottellingmyheighttill18 said on 10/Mar/17
Rob the thing that we use to measure should ONLY touch the very top of our head or THE WHOLE head?
Editor Rob: it should be able to sit on your head basically, so that any hair is flattened down completely and accounts for like 1/4 of a mm.
jav said on 9/Mar/17
Hey Rob, how much do you think these shoes give? Click Here

They are the Saucony Cohesion TR8 Trail Running shoes. In the product description, it says "Equipped with an extra two inches of foam for plush underfoot cushioning..." What does this mean? Will it give in the 3 cm range at least?
Editor Rob: jav, it doesn't look that thick, these feel more nearer 1.4 than 2 inches.

@ Sandy Cowell
Only just noticed you replied on Nana VIsitor's page, you seem like a very positive person and a great commentator, bringing some humour and light hearted ness to what can become shallow and boring lol I don't comment often but I'd like to think I'm one of the more behind the scenes guys of the site, my album is above and I've even met Big Rob, there's probably 30+, possibly more, of quotes I've found for Rob, and I plan to be a long time contributor with photographs at conventions, just to add another small dimension. Anyway, bit late to welcome you to the site lol but nice to meet you. :)
justbringit said on 9/Mar/17
Also rob if you are feeling pressure in your back after sitting for many hours at a chair (school and then again at home doing projects) do you think that it is safe to say that you have reached your low?
Editor Rob: pressure in our backs can mean the discs have been under an excessive load and compressed a bit more.

I think if you are a weightlifter and do a set of heavy lifting and measure straight after, you'll be at extreme low range...
Sandy Cowell said on 9/Mar/17
@ Connor - When you say 'just about' Sagittarius, does that mean that you are teetering between 2 signs? When is your actual birthday?
Ely said on 9/Mar/17
Exactly Rob, I found out that people lie about their height adding approximately 4 cm, it is 1.5 inches. Lol
Editor Rob: nobody should ever feel ashamed or embarrassed about stating their height.

I'll treat the 5ft 2 man the same as the 6ft 2 man...but if the 6ft 2 man claims 6ft 4 and the 5ft 2 man 5ft 2, I'll know which guy I'm going to trust more...

2al said on 8/Mar/17
Hi Rob,
I wonder If there is any chance to know exactly how tall am I or If you can guess that by sending you a picture. In any case, whatever information you can give me will be very helpful.

So I have always said to be 5'11", and I took a picture with my father, who is 5'10" (or 5'10.5), and I was taller. The point is that I began to feel insecure about my height since I was measured by my doctor between last year and this one, and he told me that my height was around 1.75-1.77m
So then I wonder why the doctor said I am that tall If I'm taller than most of the people I encounter with in a daily basis, because here in Spain the average height is around 5"9'-5"10' and according to friends and family I'm around 1,80-1,82m (at around 5'11.5, not really 6'), upper-average height - though, of course, there is a lot of people in this country taller than me. However, I'm confused about my height because of my doctor's statements that are contrary to what I always thought was my height (and my family too). Thanks a lot!
Editor Rob: 2al, I'd remeasure yourself a few times and find your true height.

it's really hard to tell precisely from single photos how tall somebody could get a rough range.
Canson said on 8/Mar/17
@Connor: you can look closely at certain trends heee on this site. It's always the ones who upgrade everyone or wishfully think they are taller or make the comments Ice makes that are insecure. They inflate others because they aren't what they claim or wish they were taller. When someone downgrades however they are considered insecure even tho it's common knowledge that most people here are overlisted some grossly
MrFish said on 8/Mar/17
Rob, if I'm 176.3-176.6 out of bed and 174.3-174.6 at my lowest, could I round up to 5ft 9in for my drivers license and other documents?
Editor Rob: Fish, I think it is ok since at your lowest you are a fraction under.

putting 5ft 8 would be more of a round down...
Jacky Huynh said on 8/Mar/17
Haha, well I'm an introvert so I didn't party during my birthday. But I slept in, ate pizza, and did some gaming. It was as good of a birthday as it can get.

I'm on the shorter side among younger people in the UK? Good to know. I am on the shorter among younger people in the US and Canada. As an introvert, I'm fine with being a little shorter. I don't wanna stand out in a crowd with nothing to say!

Justbringit said on 7/Mar/17
Hey rob if a wall slightly bends forward/backwards how much can you over/undermeasure?
Editor Rob: Justbringit, see when we face the wall, if it bends away, you could undermeasure your height.

If the wall bends towards you slightly, you could overmeasure. I understand it rob i just asked how much would the difference be if you measured in a proper wall
Editor Rob: really depends on the might be just a small fraction.
Sam said on 8/Mar/17
I've had the pleasure of meeting someone who embellished their height by 4 inches, a friend of mine actually, who was 5'8 and claimed 6'0, but it was more in jest to play along with his big ego and funny sense of humour. I don't think he actually believed he was 6 feet tall. There was another guy who was 5'9 and deadset on thinking he was 6'0, even going as far to say the other guy next to him who was around 5'11 say he was 6'2, which I had to chuckle at because I don't think even he the guy he was saying it to thought he was that tall but just went along with what he was saying. Those are rare occurances though and most I've met only round up or maybe add an inch or two, with the odd one being honest and claiming his legit height every now and then. That's my experience anyway.
Editor Rob: I would encourage anybody to be honest about height.

there's always time for somebody who once lied to come clean and just say it like it'll earn more respect for it.

that goes for actors too. I know you are in the business of lying for a living, but when the camera's stop rolling, be in the business of honesty.

@ Nik - Hello again! This morning I will start my commenting by talking about something that you have enlightened me to! I had theorized as to whether such a thing was possible and that is being able to have a customized search of our postings! I have lost track of how many times I have submitted a comment for Rob's page. There are other busy pages like Donald Trump's, where there is so much 'traffic' (good term!), that it doesn't take long for the entire lot to change. Brad Pitt's is another! Now I know that I can actually hunt around for something I might wish to read again, probably for its comedic value, and NOT be wasting my time!

I am still very much at the 'trial and error' stage with my internet research. I am enjoying it though! The other day I wanted to find out about what happened to the cast of an old-as-the-hills sitcom called 'On the Buses'! It turns out that there is only one member of the cast left alive, which I thought terribly sad. One member, Jack, even took his own life. It just goes to show how much pressure being famous can put a person under. I wouldn't like to have my life under scrutiny all the time, or make the papers because I take a pee down a side street when I've been taken short, or get pictured in the papers like Ronnie Wood with my finger up my nose! Ha ha ha!

My Mum was actually not a teacher in Germany at all! When I say she was a good teacher, I meant she was good in imparting knowledge to others, but she wouldn't stand slackers! She did have a stint teaching German at a school called 'St. Christopher's', in this country, where she had a favourite pupil called Heather. I still remember the purple Easter Egg she bought my Mum! I ate it and got a severe scolding! I was 7 years old!

I am not a whizz at languages like my Mum, alas! We only did French at school and I found it easy, which means, I suppose, that I was good at it! I had my Mum behind me though and that is one of the languages she did! I would liked to have learnt more German than I actually did from my Mum! I haven't been there since I was 10 years old though! I started writing down German words off my own back and it's my Dad who can help me with that! He's more patient than my Mum, who expected her 'pupils' to be as quick on the uptake as she was!
I'm in favour of kids having as thorough an education in as many subjects as possible. I've noticed that good English grammar is nonexistent now, and it does get to me, much to the amusement of my friends!

I had a letter/comment from a lad called Peter on Monday regarding astrology and the reply I wrote to him is up now. That subject is truly vast! I am interested in the traits side of things! What Nostradamus predicted frightens me and gives me nightmares, so I try to leave it alone, but then he did have biblical-scale visions as well! I wouldn't have liked that but it must have been very satisfying for him to help plague victims! What people lived through in the middle ages makes one realize how lucky we are to be alive in this day and age! Today's people are the result of the plague-resistant few, I've read!

I knew you'd like the chart Rob made of all the countries that visit celebheights, and I myself was extremely surprised that somewhere as vast as China should take 67th position! The average heights of the Chinese would be interesting to know as well! Maybe they don't find height very exciting over there, you never know!

Well, it's tea time for me now! I am absolutely gasping as I haven't had a cup yet and it's a quarter to 9 in the morning! I drink ever so much tea! I think I must be addicted to it!
Enjoy the rest of your week Nik!

Regards to your family and friends and their dogs!

Bye bye for now! πŸ‘‹πŸ™‹

Rob,any idea about Belarus president Alexandre Lukashenko's height?he's listed at 6'2 but he looks barely 5" taller than Putin well 6' is possible at peak maybe even 184 max but 6'2 seems too high,what's your opinion?
And what about a page for all infamous people(Ben Laden,Al Capone,Bernard Madoff,Manson...)I know,maybe not the best thing but still,they were celebs in their way,it could be interesting.
Editor Rob: around 6ft range is possible for him, maybe he shrunk a bit though.
Leo2001 said on 7/Mar/17
How tall is your eyelevel big Rob?
Editor Rob: usually around 4.5 inches below my height, but if you tilt eyes down it will look bigger, and tilt your eye up a bit then it'll seem smaller.

Rob, is half a foot difference 5.5-6 inches??
Angelos said on 7/Mar/17
Hi Rob, what kind of heel gives 5 inches in height?
Editor Rob: to get 5 inches, you really need a platform near 2 inches.

Hey Rob, it's my birthday today! I am now 23 years old and of course still standing at 5ft 7.5in (171-172).

I know I'm below average but not quite short overall. But would I be considered short among the younger generation Scots or English?
Editor Rob: I hope you had a good birthday. Yes, you would be on the shorter side in the UK amongst 20-30 year olds.

Editor Rob: Ely, maybe because a large chunk of the population lie a bit about height, so you're 5ft 6.5 guys who pretend to be 5ft 8 distorts true height a bit.
JJ said on 7/Mar/17
Hey Rob I'm EXACTLY a quarter inch above six-three, so would you say I'm a strong six-three?,
Editor Rob: JJ, yes, you fall into the same category as say Kevin Sorbo (peak), Gwendoline Christie...
Justbringit said on 7/Mar/17
Hey rob if a wall slightly bends forward/backwards how much can you over/undermeasure?
Editor Rob: Justbringit, see when we face the wall, if it bends away, you could undermeasure your height.

If the wall bends towards you slightly, you could overmeasure.

This is a bit weird...just a few years ago Sweden had a measured average of 5'11.5" (181.5) but now a few weeks ago it said it was 5'10.5"...
Editor Rob: maybe barefoot and more accurate, or because of increased immigration from shorter countries, the sample now includes a broader representation of Sweden today than a few years ago.

Hey Rob! Could you look into Josh Segarra? :)
Jen79 said on 7/Mar/17
Rob, please tell me is it more accurate to claim our afternoon height, not the evening one. Fo example- i'm 171cm/170.7 cm out of bed and just before bed- 169cm/168.5 cm. So should i claim 169cm or a higher one - may be 169.5 ?
Editor Rob: I wouldn't bother with .5, just say 169.

People value honesty and if you are honest with such simple matters like height, you'll find it easier to be honest about all sorts of things.

hi Rob! do you think Rey Mysterio knows his true height but just doesnt admitt to be 5ft 2 or he could be 5ft 1. he claims 5ft 6. i remember he claimed 5ft 7 i was 5ft 7 at age 15 and i thought i was short like Rey Mysterio.
Editor Rob: I have great respect for any wrestler who actually gives their true barefoot height.

Unfortunately very few do so...

Actually, WWE's ratings would increase if they introduced a Height and Weight segment, were wrestlers get measured...
James B said on 6/Mar/17
Rob since your adding late wrestlers to the site such as earthquake/big John studd perhaps consider adding Test?

I'd say 6ft5 for Test is a good estimate
Editor Rob: well, he is one of a bunch of notable names that maybe should be given a page, 6ft 5 is quite possible.
Canson said on 6/Mar/17
@Ice: so you're saying Connor is insecure about his height something very funny coming out of a guy's mouth who just said 6'2 and 6'2.5 feels to short to him and at its lowest

@Sandy Cowell

Hi Sandy,

Yes it is interesting that people from all over the world come to this website, I also find it interesting to know when someone has visited from a country that rarely houses visitors to this site. I am surprised that China only ranks as 67th in the world especially as it is one of the most populated countries in the world. Now having mentioned China I would be keen to know what it's national averages are for the heights of men and women. I would also like to find out who has been commenting on this website the longest and currently who the most frequent commenters on this website are, you must be in the top few Sandy!

I have been really making the most of this website recently, I have been going into the height articles section of this site and exploring all the different subsections from there. Also I found it is great to go into the google custom search box and type my user name in because it broughf up many or all of my previous postings which i would otherwise have found difficult to get hold of. After reading some of my past postings I thought * did I really say that!? I also brought up what I think could be my first comment but I am not certain it was the first, this comment was on Samantha Giles' page last September.

My eldest brother Steve and my niece Lucy are both scorpios. I do not know very much about star signs though and I have never heard of "fixed", "Cardinal", and "mutable" signs. It will be interesting to find out what all these terms mean.

It was clear by what you said that your Mum was a good all round teacher although you said she was not as good at physics as she was at other subjects. I have heard that being said before by a few people, physics always seems to generally trouble people a lot and not that many people have ever been good at it! - apart from Einstein and a few others! Your Mum was very intelligent having learnt 5 languages and with her having been good at teaching so many different subject areas. Was she ever headteacher at her school in Hamburg? Plus did your Mum ever teach at a school in England as well?

At school, like most people, I was interested in some subjects but not others however after leaving school I only ever taught myself something it I was interested in it. When I was at school there was the pessure of exams and assignments so it made the learning experience more stressful and also you are obliged to learn every single subject on the curriculum and like I said I was not interested in all of the subjects. However learning subjects you are not interested in at school can help you in later life so it is best for children to do the best they can at everything. It is good for people to keep learning in adult life as well because it is good for your mental health and it also ensures that your brain is as fit and active as possible in later life. You mentioned about your Mum teaching your Dad German, how much German do you know Sandy? Also it must be good for you and your Dad to swear at each other in German, I bet you both really push the boundaries!

Well now it is Monday the weekend is past tense. I went to my friend Martin's house to watch the rugby league on Friday evening, St Helens V Wakefield was the match that we watched. My football team Leeds United won away against Birmingham City 3-1 too. On another note Martin has 2 dogs, Eddie and Bailey, and they were under my feet whilst I was there!

Now onto what you said about keeping scrap books on celebrities, it is really good to keep scrapbooks but the pages do have a tendency to fall out. I have never got round to keeping one myself but my eldest brother Steve has kept scrapbooks to do with rugby league.

Have a great week, cheers.

Hi Rob?Quick questions?
1.Are late bloomers mostly taller than early bloomers?
2.I'm 173cm in the morning,172 mid-morning but 171cm later in the day, am I allowed claim my morning height when asked?
3.The average height of men in most countries,do you find that accurate?Cause most individuals(men)I've met are normally around 5'10-5'11
Editor Rob: Sammy, later bloomers may well have an advantage, but I think you'd need to read research to discover the truth about it...

You won't be incarcerated for claiming 173cm...175 maybe ☠️, but I think you should claim a height you feel comfortable with. All I'd suggest is if you say 173, maybe mention 'first thing' πŸ‘

I've not been to many countries or observed height, it's mainly been the UK.

''A 4-inch inflation is a bit sad''

Rob, a LOT of people do that in real life. You'd be really surprised.

I think there are more people that inflate their heights, than tell the truth.

I've seen MANY 5'6'' range dudes claim 5'9'' - 5'10'' before

and even seen legit 5'10'' guys claim they are tall as 6'3''! lol
Editor Rob:

any 5ft 10 guy claiming 6ft 2, let alone 3, should be thoroughly ashamed...

it's understandable though, some people mistake 3 inches for 6 inches in other departments...

That said,a 4-5" inflation is very rare.
Imagine a 5'7 so rather small guy trying to convince people that he's actually a 6'tall,sounds crazy.I knew someone who boosted himself by 6 maybe 7 cms with a recent claim that he's growing 26.The guy is very genuine in person,he seems honest about almost everything,just can't accept he's only about 173-4 interestingly a little over the average of a young man here.
boosting height by 1" is fine because even honest people aren't trained as Rob to spot small differences,2" and we're betting the other person is also lying,hardly feasible with a honest person.3"+seems impossible to do because the shape becomes too much different.In some cases I can understand a guess 3-4 cm away from the actual height perhaps due to bad/good posture but 12-13cms? if someone believes that he would immediately need a pair of glasses.
Michael R said on 6/Mar/17
Rob I know how you have said before that shoe size relates to height but I have a great uncle who is about 6'4 with a size 9 US is that very rare?
Editor Rob: you know what they say about shoe and hand size...what a man lacks in these areas, he MORE than makes up for in others πŸ‘Œ

@ Connor - Yes, of course I like you! Have a good week!
How about this for a laugh? I read that emojis, yes, emojis, are the trigger for a great many arguments! πŸ˜ΉπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜„πŸ˜‚
Now I found that hilarious!
Sandy Cowell said on 6/Mar/17
@ Peter 179cm - Hello Peter! I am interrupting my watching of 'Emmerdale' because it involves the bullying of a poor boy who has been through much too much already, and it will show again anyway!
I'd much rather think about something more constructive. Things like bullying get me down and the fact that soaps bring up the subject is good if it draws the public's attention to the sorrowful matter.
Anyway, you have expressed an interest in astrology! This is one of the most mind-blowing and intriguing subjects I can think of and something that triggered my interest in it was the 16th Century Physician Nostradamus. (1503 - 1566). Eons ahead of his time, and one of a kind, he'd even be ahead of today's times! How he made so many frighteningly accurate predictions is pretty good proof that there is something in it! I am still learning the basics! I have learnt the familiar traits that certain star signs have, and I've known enough people in my life to know that it's not balderdash, but the question you asked was concerning 'fixed' signs! I can't really just talk about one quadruplicity when there are three, and the other two are cardinal and mutable. They are based on the seasons of the year. You are a mutable sign as you are Gemini. The other mutable signs are Virgo, Sagittarius (like Nostradamus!) and Pisces and they are the most adaptable people! Fixed signs, which are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are stubborn and set in their ways, which sounds awful to me, but it can be quite nice if it means a person stands up for what he/she believes in!
Then finally, we have the cardinal signs - Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn and they are good at making changes, and this has everything to do with the fact that they are the first signs of each season!
As this is primarily a height site, well, it is 100% a height site if I'm to get pedantic, it would be interesting to question whether certain signs are known for certain heights! I think the answer to that is a resounding "No!" However, other physical traits do seem to play a part, like Taurus the Bull consisting of thick-set people and Leos having mane-like hair! I did know a tiny-built Taurean girl though called Gillie, who was 5ft6, very skinny and great fun to loon around with! I have never yet known a bald Leo, but that's just me! They'll be around to be sure! Scorpio people are fiercely faithful, but no fun to cross! My Mum was one! Cancerians, like Nik (hi Nik!) are sensitive, caring and family-orientated! I think it's all a lot of fun and not to be taken too seriously, but there is something there, to be sure!
I hope you are a little bit more in the know now about star signs! Enjoy your week!

@Csimpson 6ft

As Sandy said you keep visiting celebheights!. πŸ‘

@Editor Rob

For me I reckon you are very close to average in Scotland which will probably be somewhere in the 5'8.5".- 5'9" range. I reckon you will be tall, average, and a little bit short in the company of different groups of Scottish men but average overall.
Josh said on 6/Mar/17
Hey Rob, how should you stand when you measure yourself? Is breathing in a little okay or is this busting a gut? I ask this because doctors always say to breathe in...
Editor Rob: Josh, if you want a maximum measurement then breathe in...for some it might effect your height only a minuscule amount, but others may breathe in and bust a gut and gain even half an inch!

@ Sandy Cowell Hi there,Sandy! I read your last reply to Nik and i must say,you discuss lots of stuff and seem like a very sociable person!I got a question for you,though:What does a "fixed" sign mean and does astrology affect our lifes and attitudes? I'm a Gemini,btw...
Sandy Cowell said on 5/Mar/17
@ Connor - I was just going through some of the comments from the past few days, when I came across your rant from 25th February to one Arthur!
It really made me laugh! It was on par with an episode of 'South Park' where all the swearing has been bleeped out! I find that sort of thing mighty funny! πŸ‘ πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰

Editor Rob: I don't know when I'll start shrinking, but if I live to 70 I will certainly not be 5ft 8, how much under I am not sure...I won't care though, I'll be delighted if I have another 30 years on Earth πŸ™ 🀝 πŸ‘

Would be amazing to keep a site like this going for a long-time...


You have such a positive attitude and outlook on life Rob, it's seriously incredible.
Michael R said on 4/Mar/17
Rob I'm 15 will be 16 in 3 months and typically length 32 is what I wear in terms of pants. Lately though my parents have been buying 34 length and they drag and I walk on the bottom of them even if I wear them at my waste just too long. Is it possible that when I'm 18 they will fit well? That would mean my legs get 2 inches longer. I would like to grow 3 inches total however.
Editor Rob: still a chance to grow, so I think they may fit better in 3 years...though by that time, they'll probably be worn down!
Blake said on 4/Mar/17
Rob, are the people in your town which I believe you said was East Kilbride I think? Mostly shorter or taller than you do you feel when you walk around town?
Editor Rob: Blake, at 5ft 8 it can feel very average at times during the day (I see hundreds of men daily below 5ft 8), but I think 17-18 year old average is definitely about 5ft 10 range now around here.

you also had asked about other's been so long since I had other active sites, I'd forgotten about many of them but my favourite was This quote site.

That was such a positive site to do, researching amusing quotes...I registered the domain in 2001 and still have it...keep hoping one day I have the time to resurrect it.

@ Connor - I just read your comment to Nik and I'm pleased that you will probably visit celebheights while you're away in Italy. You must! We'd miss you if you didn't! Cheers!

@ Rob - That was an exciting chart you wrote, detailing the percentages of the nationalities of your visitors! I think I know it off by heart: USA - 37%, UK - 15%, Canada - 6%, India - 4% and Germany - 3%! How about Italy? Do you get visitors from the North and South Poles? The South Pole would be particularly interesting to me because it's like another world there, covered with dancing penguins and home to the strangest of films!
What about Australia, China and Japan? I've read a comment from Israel and I thought "Wow!"
Have a good weekend you and Jenny!
Editor Rob: I don't know about the Poles, but nearly every country has visited the site this year. Even 1 solitary visitor from North Korea, probably Kim Jon looking up the discount code for Dons Elevators πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

China is only 67th position.

The top 30 this year:

1. United States
2. UK
3. Canada
4. India
5. Germany
6. Australia
7. Italy
8. Sweden
9. France
10. Turkey
11. Brazil
12. Spain
13. Netherlands
14. Ireland
15. Poland
16. Finland
