Looks more 184cm next to Andy Murray in that shot where they shake hands. At 82 as doubt in my mind he was 6'2 at peak.
Judd says on 25/Mar/15
rob, recently he met Andy Murray (6'2") and considering that they had similar shoes, he didn't look much shorter than Andy... Click Here
actually i don't think he's more than 3 cms shorter than Andy and of Andy is 187,5 cms then Sean would be in the 185 cms zone, maybe 6'0.75"...[also with Alex Ferguson, who might be 5'10" today, he does look in the 6'1 zone]

what do you think, personally about his current height?
[Editor Rob: he still would clear 6ft I think if measured, how much though I'm not sure, I wouldn't go as high as 185 for him.]
Judd says on 25/Mar/15
rob i agree with the 6'2" peak listing, but why you don't fill a current height of him?
[Editor Rob: he's essentially retired from movies and not really much in the limelight now. ]
berta says on 4/Mar/15
very sttrong 62 a waek 189
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Mar/15
187cm is too low for his peak. He was still looking 188-189cm in his 50's and 60's. Watch The Untouchables, Last Crusade and The Rock.
Judd says on 22/Feb/15
However, time ago i have read that he was measured at 187 cms when he played JB...
I actually don't believe that claiming!
2toes says on 21/Feb/15
He looks very tall in his first movies, a very strong 6'2", almost 6'2.5".
Jake says on 6/Feb/15
Joe, you dont lose height until 40 , IF that. Most people START at around 50ish, thats when they usually lose a quarter inch or something like that. After 55-60 is when you lose .5 inches- 1 inch and so on. What do you mean 6'2.5 in his ''youth''? You think you drop half an inch from 18 to 35? Seriously? someone as fit and healthy and robust as him lost .5 inches???!!! Come on, that guy was 6'2.25 out of bed and around 6'1.5 by night. still 6'2, almost 6'3 with shoes. My dad met him and my dad was 6'2.5 exactly (middayish)
Joe says on 31/Jan/15
Some claimed Connery was 6'3", which I do not believe, Connery was a bodybuilder for a while, I think he was 6'2.5" in his youth, and while he was Bond he was 6'2" without shoes, I think he maintained that height into his 50s, but he is probably much shorter these days.
Arch Stanton says on 29/Jan/15
@Filmfan G image the photo of Moore with Niven and Peck, he looks almost 6'4" LOL.
jtm says on 12/Jan/15
he was taller but i doubt caine was 6'2.
Dan says on 12/Jan/15
In the film "The Man Who Would Be King" Michael Caine is definitely taller than Connery.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Jan/15
Rob, is it still worth mentioning that measurement at the top?
[Editor Rob: I don't know which book or source it is supposed to have been from, if someone ever can find it I of course would add the mention.]
Judd says on 10/Jan/15
I think 6'2" as peak height if the fairest choice.
In the january of 1989 he was, when he directed with Michael Caine the academy awards ceremony, as tall as Kevin Kline, who was for sure a genuine 6'1.5" guy...
Sean was 58-59 in that period, so i guess he hadn't still lost too much, not more than 0,5" for sure...they were both 6'1.5" in 1989.

Mario says on 7/Jan/15
Measured at 6 ft 2.4 in his early 20s, was probably still close to that height till the late 90s, early 2000s. Nowedays he might have dipped below 6 ft 1.
[Editor Rob: that's still an unknown, nobody seems to have been able to tell when/where...

But the 6ft 2 (without any mention of a half) is down on his early acting profiles... ]
Lenad 5 ft 9.75in says on 1/Jan/15
187-188 peak. 184-185 now
Mike says on 14/Dec/14
184-185 now and 188-189 peak.
AlexMahone says on 14/Dec/14
No Mike, I absolutely disagree. Most of the pictures from Connery and Murray where they stand together or face to face are very bad for a correct comparison.

Murray talks about his height in his Twitter (6'1.5 - 187cm) but I can' believe that because his coach Ivan Lendl (former World Number One and great tennis player) is 6'2 (188cm) and I don't believe it that he shrunk for age 54 and Murray is slightly taller.

I gave Murray minimum 6'2.25 (about 189cm) and comparison with Connery, seems to me that Sean is now 6'1 (185cm). He shrunk but he's 84 years old now...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 12/Dec/14
185cm today is fair.
Mike says on 11/Dec/14
Maybe 6ft 1 but no more than that, and most likely 184.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 9/Dec/14
@Mike: In one or 2 pics he stands a little better. I'll admit that he does walk around shorter but if he stood for a measurement I'm confident he'd still be around 6ft1
Mike says on 3/Dec/14
Really? He looked more 6ft range in some of them!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 3/Dec/14
Looked 186-187cm beside Andy Murray
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 29/Nov/14
Connery hovered around the 6ft2 mark well into the 90's...
Joe says on 25/Nov/14
Sean was definitely 6'2" in his prime, not sure about today, but he was and still is the best James Bond. I grew up in a time where Roger Moore was Bond, Connery was the best and still is the best Bond. Apparently the producers saw Connery in Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan, but nothing compares to the original.
Sam says on 24/Nov/14
Haven't seen it but is The Offence really better than The Hill, Arch? That's my favorite underrated Connery film...not a huge stretch for him in that performance I guess by a really solid, good movie.
Arch Stanton says on 21/Nov/14
The Offence I reckon was his greatest performance (that I've seen anyway).
Arch Stanton says on 21/Nov/14
It's British spelling The Offence actually.
Arch Stanton says on 21/Nov/14
Rob can you add a photo and films like Marnie, The Offense, Murder on the Orient Express, The Man Who Would be King, Highlander, The Hunt for Red October and Entrapment. The Offense is one of the best movies of his I've seen.
Luc says on 19/Nov/14
today 1.86
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 15/Nov/14
Watching The Rock and he's easily got 2-3in on Nicholas Cage who I still wouldn't argue below 6ft. That and he has 1-1in on 6ft1-6ft2 Michael Bay.
Joe says on 14/Nov/14
I think Sean Connery was 6'2" while he portrayed James Bond, he might have been 6'2.5" in the morning. He definitely lost height as he aged. I think he was about 6'1" when was in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. He was only slightly taller than his co-star Harrison Ford, who I would guess was around 6'0.5" in his prime.
Judd says on 13/Nov/14
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 30/Oct/14

Michael Caine - 6ft1(187cm)
Sean Connery - 6ft2(189cm)
Morgan Freeman - 6ft2(190cm)

in my opinion:

Michael Caine - 6'1.75-2"
Sean Connery - 6'2"
Morgan Freeman - 6'2.5"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 30/Oct/14

Michael Caine - 6ft1(187cm)
Sean Connery - 6ft2(189cm)
Morgan Freeman - 6ft2(190cm)
pedriscovery says on 28/Oct/14
If you look the film outbreak un a final scene face to face final sutherland AMD morgan freema .sutherland is two inches mimimum more tal that freeman hace the same range of connery this film is about 1994
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 25/Oct/14
Connery for the most part edged out Caine by 1-2cm
Sam says on 23/Oct/14
Back in The Man Who Would Be King time, Connery and Michael Caine were very similar in height, more mm than cm between them. Although Sean is only a few years older, I think the pictures of them together show Connery started losing height a little earlier than Caine.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 23/Oct/14
189cm peak
Arch Stanton says on 22/Oct/14
Sure Ytr and Donald Sutherland was 6'5" and Clint Eastwood 6'5.5".
Henrik says on 22/Oct/14
6'2" peak, not 6'3". He's more like a flat 6' today which you can see on his long legs that make his torso look very out of proportion. He's gotten the "Clint syndrome".
mike says on 22/Oct/14
I doubt he measures over 6ft 1. 185 is his max today.
Ytr says on 20/Oct/14
He was 6 foot 3 at peake today 6 foot 1 1/2
Judd says on 11/Oct/14
He' a perfect example of a 6'2" guy when he portrayed James Bond...
Today 6'0.5-1" is likely, but I didn't see much recent pictures of him...
grizz says on 5/Oct/14
Rob, was Connery still 6ft2 in Indiana Jones? He seems considerably taller than 6'0.75 Ford back then.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 4/Oct/14
6ft2-6ft2 peak, 6ft1-6ft1 now. That works out at just over 1in loss...
mike says on 2/Oct/14
Peak: 6ft 2-2.25in 188-189 cm
Today: 6ft 0.5-0.75in 184-185 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 1/Oct/14
More 6ft1.5/187cm in his 70s...
mike says on 25/Sep/14
Caine had to be closer to 6ft 1.5 Connery always seemed to edged him out even at the Oscars in 1988 he looked fraction taller than him where he would've been 58 at the time. I don't think he was 6ft 1.5 either maybe he was measured at that while leaning a bit? although he did looks 2 inches shorter Donald Sutherland...
Martin says on 24/Sep/14
Can someone explain this picture. Joseph Wiseman and Sean Connery is almost identically in height. Wiseman is listed on the internet as 183cm. There is some shoe-difference in the picture, but not much. This must be proof that Sean Connery was probably around 187cm at peak. Click Here
James B says on 11/Sep/14
188cm peak and 187cm by late 1970s
Dovahkiin says on 6/Sep/14
189cm in shoes, 187cm barefoot peak
mike says on 18/Aug/14
Connery: 6ft2.25in 189 cm
Caine: 6ft 1.75in 187 cm
BorkLaser says on 14/Aug/14
Lots of sources seem to point at 189 cm for peak height. Nowadays 6'0" doesn't seem to be off at all
James B says on 6/Aug/14
6'2 seems okay for his peak. In never say never again he might have been 6'1.5. If you look at him compared to pat roach or Rowan Atkinson in that film I don't think he looked a full 6'2.

Rob do you think Connery was likely no taller than 6'1.5 in 1983 when that film came out?
SaveUsY2J says on 3/Aug/14
Might be as low as 6'0" nowadays, he is turning 84 later this month. Don't doubt 6'2 peak.
Henrik says on 4/Jul/14
Arch Stanton, we have to remember that he was always a heavy smoker. The nasty habit tends to do that to you.
Henrik says on 27/Jun/14
Connery said 6'1.5" himself as well, did he not? He could look a genuine 6'2" at times, but he didn't next to 6'4" Bernie Casey in Never Say Never Again.
Dave618 says on 21/Jun/14
It amuses me that even in the face of valid info, some people still refuse to change their opinions. This sense of arrogance could in fact be why the world is so F'd up. Eon released the Bond heights. Eon is the company that produced the Bond films. Their tailors measured each and every Bond actor.
Conner: six feet one and one half inch.
Lazenby: six feet one and one half inch
Moore: Six feet one
Dalton Six feet two
Brosnan: Six feet one

They didn't list Craig, for some reason.

Maybe Connery is an out of bed 6'2" and dips a half an inch during the day. That is my exact height by the way. Or maybe he is 6'1 and 1/2 out of bed and was measured early in the AM. Who knows?

But please, let this end the debate of who the tallest Bond was. It is Timothy Dalton. Connery is most likely a weak 6'2" and let's leave it at that. Really, i trust EON over anyone else on this site. They, you know, actually MEASURED him.
mike says on 10/Jun/14
6ft 2-6ft 3 (188-191 cm ) peak 6ft 0.5-6ft 1.5 (184-187 cm) today.
Arch Stanton says on 2/Jun/14
Also when being surveyed in The Anderson Tapes one observer estimates him as Male. Caucasian and 6 ft 3!
Arch Stanton says on 2/Jun/14
He aged a huge amount between 1962 and 1972, in the Anderson Tapes he looks almost old enough to be the father of himself in Dr. No and looks more in his 50s than 40s. In a dressing gown barefoot in the Anderson Tapes, he had to have been around this, but I honestly can't see 189 or 190.
avi says on 24/May/14
Yeah next to Atkinson he looked under 6'2. Atkinson at 5'11.5 is possible and Connery 6'1.5 -.75 is possible too.
berta says on 20/May/14
peak 189 now about 185-186
avi says on 3/May/14

This seems fair. Maybe 6'2.25 peak.
BoboAshanty says on 1/May/14
looks (184-185cm) nowadays. He hasn't lost much
Connor 184.5-185cm says on 19/Apr/14
So Rob you think Rowan is 182cm?, you currently have him at 181cm on the site, he definetly does look 6ft in shoes though id say.
[Editor Rob: at one point I thought 182 on here, then I looked at him again and thought maybe 181 range]
Connor 184.5-185cm says on 19/Apr/14
Rob in Never say never again, Thunderball remake Rowan Atkinson was in that film he looked 6ft with Sean Connery do you think Rowan was a 6 footer back in the 80s?
[Editor Rob: not seen it for a long time, I am not convinced Rowan really was 6ft flat, a bit shy of that I still would guess]
James B says on 25/Mar/14
Do you think rob 6'1 1/2 is unlikely for his peak?
Henrik says on 20/Mar/14
Indeed, Jake. Flaming was supposedly angered at first because of thinking that Connery was too robust.
James B says on 15/Mar/14
In Russia with love looked 186cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 2/Mar/14
He was still looking 186-187cm a few years ago. No doubt a 188-189cm range guy in his 20s-30s. For his generation he technically a giant.
gearjammer says on 2/Mar/14
Sean Connery was 6'2" in shoes when played 007 small head made him look taller' in 2010 no more then 6'00" my dad stood next to sean connery in 1974 dad was just bit taller at 6'2"
JAJ says on 15/Feb/14
6'1" to 6'1,5" is fair for him when he was younger.
Mark says on 24/Jan/14
Yes, Dave, I seem to recall reading that from the Bond tailors. Well, Connery was/is a pretty sturdy 6'1.5 guy. As an aside, and in my opinion, those Bond suits were best from the first 2 movies. All 70's suits should have been burned.
Dave618 says on 23/Jan/14
I read a thing from the Eon tailors--Eon was the company that produced the Bond films, and the tailors were in charge of making the various Bond's suits. They listed Dalton as the tallest 007 at an even 6'2". Connery and Lazenby were 6'1 and 1/2 inches, and Moore and Brosnan were 6'1" even. They didn't list Craig. SInce these dudes were measuring the actors for their various suits, I imagine this is pretty accurate. I believe Connery is 6'2" out of bed, and dips to 6'1 and 1/2 after a while. The 6'2" and 1/2 measurement from his bodybuilding days was probably in shoes.
Mark says on 22/Jan/14
...Granted, I see some sagging skin in Never Say Never Again (not abundantly so, just normal for a 53 year old guy), but to me, Connery looks quite lean. I know a line in the movie says he's 190, but whether or not it's accurate, I don't see him as heavier than any previous Bond outting. He certainly looks fit. As for my 201 figure, I'm just going by an actual qoute of his from the late 60's. Interestly, I just cught an old Battle of The Network Stars ('77) 2 nights ago, where Patrick Duffy was listed as 183. To my knowledge, Duffy was/is 6'2.5. But, "he" was lifting weights alot in '77. So, if Connery really was 201, the guy was maybe not buff in modern terms, but solid.
Arch Stanton says on 21/Jan/14
Rampage watch Last Vegas, Freeman does look near 6'3 in it.
Arch Stanton says on 21/Jan/14
Connery was described as 190 pounds in Never Say Never when he looked way heavier than he did in the early 60s. I've read 176 or 8 pounds for him in early Bond which seems lower than you'd expect but he was pretty slim. Never Say Never Again though no way was he under 200 pounds!!
Mark says on 20/Jan/14
Maybe this has been covered, but I read an interview from way back where Connery, himself, described his weight for his latter 60's Bond movies as around 201 pounds. You can't be a 200 pounder, profess that swimming and occasional football and golfing is all you did for exercise, have no detectable bodyfat with your shirt off and not have some height to you. Granted, he had/has a sturdy frame. And though he may have weight trained years earlier, I've read no comments about doing that during his Bond years. Again, he had to have had some substatial height on him to carry 200 that well in, say, Thunderball. I used to think 6'1 plus. Now I'm wondering if 6'2 plus is more accurate.
James B says on 20/Jan/14
188cm peak. No more
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 20/Jan/14

6ft3/191cm out of bed
6ft3/191cm early morning
6ft2.75/190cm morning
6ft2.75/190cm lunchtime
6ft2.5/189cm afternoon
6ft2.5/189cm evening
6ft2.25/189cm night
6ft2.25/189cm before bed


6ft1.75/187cm out of bed
6ft1.75/187cm early morning
6ft1.5/187cm morning
6ft1.5/187cm lunchtime
6ft1.25/186cm afternoon
6ft1.25/186cm evening
6ft1/185cm night
6ft1/185cm before bed

So, that's about 1-1.5in loss which is impressive for a guy pushing 84
berta says on 13/Jan/14
peak height weak 189
James says on 12/Jan/14
187cm in never say never again
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 5/Jan/14
@Arch: Freeman looks nowhere near 6ft3 today. He barely edged out Christian Bale. In his prime he could definitely look near it, though. Maybe 189-190cm in his day. 188cm max now though.

188-189cm peak for Connery. Still looked a strong 6ft2 in The Hunt For Red October aged 60 opposite a young Alec Baldwin and he was still looking 186-187cm just a few years ago, so likely is 6ft1ish now.
Lenad is sexy says on 3/Jan/14
187-188cm for a young connery. 6'1 max today
Arch Stanton says on 1/Jan/14
Freeman always looked taller on screen to me than Connery. Even now Freeman can look near 6'3". Connery is 6'0.5 max today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 23/Dec/13
I think Connery stayed at 6ft2 mark well into his 60s. In The Rock he looked about 6ft3 with Nicolas Cage and that was 1996. I'd be amazed if he came out as only 6ft now.
johnmcc says on 21/Dec/13
Clearly above 6'2 at his peak. "BIG tam" was the tallest bond and was probably between 6'2 - 6'2.75 at peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 20/Dec/13
Yeah, Connery and Freeman looked like guys may have scraped the 189cm mark in their 20s-30s.
Whereas the likes of Caine and Warren Beatty may have been closer to 187cm.

It seems really pedantic at times when we quarrel over a couple of centimetres!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 18/Dec/13
"Peak height was 6ft 2.5in (189cm)"
"Sean Connery's height is 6ft 1in (185cm)"

Don't rule out 186cm either. Wasn't much shorter than Andy Murray in pics. A solid 1.5in lost at 83 is quite remarkable. Anywhere between 6ft2-6ft2.5 for a young Connery is debatable. Not buying the alleged 6ft1.5 tripe. That would put a young Michael Caine at 6ft1 flat and Nicolas Cage at 5ft11 max
Lenad is sexy says on 14/Dec/13
he might have been a weak 6'2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Dec/13
189cm peak, 185cm now
Lenad is sexy says on 6/Dec/13
I think a very solid 187cm peak is a good shout. 184 now
pataan19 says on 4/Dec/13
Hey Rob, have you seen the photos of him with Ian Fleming who's listed at 6'0"? Sean really doesn't seem to have 2 inches on him, maybe 1-1.5 inches max! Plus in these photos, Fleming seems to be well into his 50's as well! What do you think Rob??
[Editor Rob: never really looked at how tall fleming is.]
Arch Stanton says on 26/Nov/13
Rob why did you take away the mentioning of the 6'2.4 bodybuilding measurement?
[Editor Rob: I wanted to find the mention again in print before adding it back.]
Arch Stanton says on 26/Nov/13
Connery at 6'1.5" though puts Anthony Perkins at 6'0.5" and john Gavin at 6'3 etc, although Donald Sutherland did have about two inches on Connery and I think he was a slightly shorter than Clint Eastwood peak.
Arch Stanton says on 26/Nov/13
Rampage Connery had about an inch on Anthony Perkins in Orient express who Rob has at 6'1.5" on here and looked 188-9 next to Vanessa Redgrave.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 24/Nov/13
Costner is/was for sure at least a solid 6ft1in in his youth. Connery could appear noticeably taller in some scenes and just barely taller in others. It's fair to say that he hovered around the 6ft2in mark for quite a while.
Martin says on 20/Nov/13
Rob, I think you need to downgrade him to 6ft 1.5in, which was measured by EON. If you display the current height, it will be around 6ft 1in
Sam says on 12/Nov/13
For sure in every scene and still from The Untouchables where they are standing on equal ground, Connery seems a solid inch taller than Costner.
Click Here
Arch Stanton says on 11/Nov/13
Saw The Untouchables last night, first time in about 15 years. Hard to decide how he fared next to Kevin Costner. At times he could look 1-2 inches taller, at other times they looked the same height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Nov/13
He looked 6ft2-3 aged 66 next to Nicolas Cage in The Rock.
Arch Stanton says on 6/Nov/13
I don't think he looked quite as tall on screen as Charlton Heston Rampage.
Arch Stanton says on 6/Nov/13
He really was incredibly tall Napier, and very broad shouldered despite his skinny frame. He looked a lot broader than Connery who was obviously a well-built guy himself.
Arch Stanton says on 6/Nov/13
If you watch Marnie you'll see he really doesn't look under 6'2" next to 6'6" Alan Napier, if anything you could argue 189cm more than 6'1". But Napier was one of the few guys Connery ever stood next to on screen which made him look average!
Rusty says on 17/Sep/13
I think the 6'2.4" was taken quite early in the day. I think 6'2" on the nose is the most he ever could have been
Mario says on 6/Sep/13
He was measured at 6 ft 2.4 back then during is early bodybuilding days when he was in his 20s, but i'm fine with this height listening, it's probably close enough to the truth.
avi says on 5/Sep/13
Full 6'2 but who knows the tailors may under measure by .5 or more. I agree can give stronger 6'2 impression.
Which Bond movie did you get the highest impression he was more a 6'2 flat guy? I agree he's about 6'2 not 6'3 like I saw before in some sites.
KROC says on 20/Aug/13
Wasn't he measured at 6'1.5 by the Bond tailors? Not like it matters, I personally think he was the full 6'2.
Arch Stanton says on 15/Aug/13
Yes, he does look strong 6'1" range in some of the photos.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 14/Aug/13
"Peak height was 6ft 2.4in (189cm)"

Is documented as being measured at that height and as being the tallest actor to play James Bond.
Not buying 6ft1.5. He edged out Michael Caine.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Aug/13
Eh...Arch you need to look at those pictures again.
He looked barely shorter than Murray in some of them and in others maybe 1in shorter.

I admit that he can appear barely over 6ft now. But, if he stood for a measurement I'm confident he'd be taller than you think.
Arch Stanton says on 5/Aug/13
Rob I see you say you used to have him at 6'2.25 189cm. What was the reason for the downgrade? I can still believe that he did measure 6'2.4" earlier in the day in his 20s though can't you?
[Editor Rob: watching early bond I thought a 6ft 2 on the nose was a better shout]
Arch Stanton says on 5/Aug/13
Not sure he'd measure over 6'1" today Rampage. He looked 184 tops next to Andy Murray. I can believe that he measured 189 earlier in the day as a young man, but remember that he claims 6'1.5" and that was the height he was measured at for Bond and he did look minimum 2 inches shorter than Donald Sutherland. I think 6'2" peak is fair though.

6ft2.25/189cm peak
6ft1.25/186cm today

For 83, 1in loss is quite phenomenal
robe says on 29/Jul/13
I also think that Connery was while playing bond 188-189 cm.
Never under 6'2 in his youth.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Jul/13
Rob, didn't you originally have Connery at 189cm?
[Editor Rob: one time a fraction over 6ft 2 yeah]
Lenad is sexy says on 26/Jul/13
described as 6'2 a lot in his younger days. Good enough for me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 22/Jul/13
Connery was described as 6ft2 or 6ft3 in the 60s
and usually looked both at times. 189cm peak.

Yeah Lazenby looked a strong 6ft2 but 188cm peak for him looks right
jamie says on 21/Jul/13
"Connery; Peak: 6'2" Current: 6'0.5"
Lazenby; Peak: 6'0 Current: 5'11"
Moore; Peak: 6'1" Current: 6'0.25"
Dalton; Peak: 6'2" Current: 6'1.5"
Brosnan; Peak: 6'1.5" Current: 6'0.75"
Craig: 5'10" (Camera angles and lift boots akin to Tom Cruise's make him look taller)"

Lazenby, 6'0"?? Lolwut? He was clearly a strong 6'2". To say he was slightly under is madness.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 12/Jul/13
A lot of them are fairly accurate. But some are a bit iffy.
The Jim Carrey model looked about 6ft. Travolta looked 6ft2!
walter says on 12/Jul/13
But i think this time they got it right,lol, precisely the height that you guessed for Connery on 20Jan2013,Rampage!Madame Tussauds is probably as close as i will ever get to a celebrity,lol.
Sam says on 12/Jul/13
I've been to that wax museum and got the impression they tried to approximate the celebrities' heights. For some reason the Wayne one has his legs spread and isn't standing tall. I seem to recall Mick Jagger's was in also in a height dropping position and had, for some reason, a blonde wig. Most of the wax figures looked pretty close to their celebheights listing, though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Jul/13
The Madam Tussauds wax models are useless for guessing height. I'm just over 6ft3 and John Wayne was slightly shorter than me and it's common knowledge that The Duke was a solid 6ft4!
walter says on 10/Jul/13
finally the photo:under this is the photo with me and Sean Connery and another guy in Madame Tussauds,i am on the left of the photo,i am 6'1.
P.S.Rob,thanks for the imgur hint!

Looks about 6' to me,and I don't think that he has shrunk, but unless you see an actor BAREFEET, all those height discussions are a waste of time.
walter says on 27/May/13
i dont know if i can upload a photo,how to do it?
[Editor Rob: try using or to link to it/upload it]
walter says on 16/May/13
i will upload a photo taken in Madame Tussauds museum in London in 1998,i am on the left of the photo,i am about 185cm(6'1),theres me on the photo and waxed Sean Connery and another guy.
wiltonstilts says on 25/Apr/13
He appeared to be the same height as Kevin costner in the untouchables who's 6'1, or even .25 inches shorter at times maybe .25 inches taller at times too so 6'2 maybe in his peak but certainly not now. The mans 80 some odd years old I'd say he's still a very tall man.
Ud190.5cm says on 23/Apr/13
He was never a legit 6'2.He has always been 6'1.5 barefoot as measured during his bond era and in those years he was a young man in his early 30s so he could'nt have lost height.Rob why is it that except for Timothy Dalton all the bonds have been listed half an inch more than their actual barefoot heights??
Lenad is sexy says on 19/Apr/13
he always looked 6'2ish to me in his younger days. He was described as 6'2 a lot and he was claimed to be measured 6'1 1/2 without shoes. So I conclude that Connery was 6'2 give or take half an inch
lenad is sexy says on 10/Apr/13
I admit I wouldnt rule out 189cm peak. I wouldnt go higher than that though
Lorne! says on 7/Apr/13
189cm peak, A FACT. I think the 6ft2.4 measurement was legit, and that he was 6ft2.25 by the evening. Not to mention he was a tad taller than Michael Caine, and 3-4cm taller than 6ft0.75in Ford at age 60. Come on, man!
lenad is sexy says on 30/Mar/13
188cm peak. 184-185cm now
peaceman says on 20/Mar/13
He said in the 90s to Jay Leno on The Tonigh Show that he is 61
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 1/Mar/13
Yeah, also 0.5in taller than Caine at the Oscars in 1988 when they presented the award to Kevin Kline (also 6ft2 at the time)
Nerfherder says on 24/Feb/13
Over 6'2 in his prime (he edged out legit 6'2 michael caine by almost an inch in The Man Who Would Be King)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 20/Jan/13

Brad1 says on 17/Jan/13
Lazenby didn't look 6' 1.5" last sunday when I shook his hand. Most of SC's 007 co-stars told me 6' 2". As listed.
Brad says on 9/Jan/13
*I screwed up on Lazenby's. I didn't realize his current height was supposed to be 6', he also turns out to be closer to 6'1.5" on closer inspection.
Brad says on 4/Jan/13
Bond heights:

Connery; Peak: 6'2" Current: 6'0.5"
Lazenby; Peak: 6'0 Current: 5'11"
Moore; Peak: 6'1" Current: 6'0.25"
Dalton; Peak: 6'2" Current: 6'1.5"
Brosnan; Peak: 6'1.5" Current: 6'0.75"
Craig: 5'10" (Camera angles and lift boots akin to Tom Cruise's make him look taller)
Miguel says on 24/Dec/12
A few years ago (since 2000), while on the David Letterman show, he claimed to be 6ft.1.5.
miko says on 18/Dec/12
He's still well over 6'0 today in his 80's.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 18/Dec/12
Peak Heights
Connery 6ft2.25-6ft2.5
Brosnan 6ft1.5-6ft1.75
Moore 6ft1.5-6ft1.75
Spencer says on 8/Dec/12
I think (Peak Heights)

Connery: 6'2.25
Brosnan: 6'1
Moore: 6'1.5
Original says on 4/Dec/12
Peak is 6'2".
Copnovelist195 says on 9/Nov/12
If you see him alongside Claudine Auger in Thunderball, he's approximately the same height as her when he's in bare feet and she's in heels (say 3in). She's listed as 5ft8 in internet biographies (I always thought of her as 5ft10 actually). I would put him a 6ft0
James says on 3/Nov/12
Today he's 6'1 tops
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 30/Oct/12
Today he's probably 6ft1-6ft2.
nick kanelkakis says on 29/Oct/12
i think connery is 6"1 6'2 and weighed 180 in the bond movies cause some people dont think good when they guess weight pretty much the cops are dumb asses if they arrest a six ft man they cant gues 175 cause there queers lmao they dont know the imperial system sean connery can beat them up
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 24/Oct/12
@Shaun: yeah I do think he was 6ft2.5 peak..and yes he probably has lost a lot of height. He's 82 bloody years old! He looks 1-1.5in shorter than Murray.

Solid 6ft1 today, possibly 186cm. Murray could be 190cm
Shaun says on 18/Oct/12
He looked a full 6'2" peak but nothing more.
James says on 16/Oct/12
Shaun would that mean that Connery was 187cm?
Shaun says on 15/Oct/12
Rampage so you still think Connery was 6'2.5"? Compare him to 6'2.5" Andy Murray today. He must have lost a lot of height.
Shaun says on 15/Oct/12
James says on 8/Oct/12
Well in Diamonds are forever he looked 190cm but probably not over 188cm peak.

Actually he looked 1-1.5 inches shorter than 6'3" Jimmy Dean (WiIlard Whyte in that film) but I know what you mean.
James says on 8/Oct/12
Well in Diamonds are forever he looked 190cm but probably not over 188cm peak.
Shaun says on 28/Sep/12
Connery of course was a bodybuilder for some years as a younger man too so also taking that into consideration.
Shaun says on 28/Sep/12
6 ft 2 for him now anyway is literally impossible seeing him next to Andy Murray. But in all fairness Connery's height loss has been quite slow, as you say he was still looking a strong 6'1" by his last film. 1.5 inch height loss for an 82 year old man is under average I think based on the 1 inch per decade over 60 don't you think Rob?
Shaun says on 28/Sep/12
Yeah I quite agree with you. I reckon Connery and Eastwood should have a face-off! I think they could both possibly be 185 at some point in the day if stood as straight as possible but I seriously doubt either of them are over 6'1" anymore. Eastwood can still look a full 6'1" on occasion though and then barely look 6' at other times.
Shaun says on 27/Sep/12
Rob what height would you estimate him today?
[Editor Rob: maybe around 184 if measured]
Shaun says on 26/Sep/12
Rob what height would you estimate him today? I think he could be about Eastwood's height today 184-5 cm?
Shaun says on 26/Sep/12
Yeah Josh definitely has the Eastwood factor in that pic!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 17/Sep/12
Looks 1.5-2in shorter than Murray. But I'd say a prime Sean Connery would've stacked up well next to Murray.
Josh B says on 13/Sep/12
@Shaun very long legs in the murray pic, looks to have lost upper body height like Eastwood.
tom says on 10/Sep/12
Now I would guess around 6-0" by looking at him next to andy murray,has lost 2" imo.
Squire says on 9/Sep/12
I was in Edinburgh at the premier of 'Sean Connery's Edinburgh' I stood next to him and he seemed to tower above me, I'm 180. He was very impressive even at that age (1983)
matt says on 9/Sep/12
ridiculous who cares he's intact 6 2
Shaun says on 9/Sep/12

Rob here he is with Andy Murray. He looks close in one photo and then easily 2-3 inches shorter in some of the others. If I had a guess I'd put Connery at '6-6'.5 today, but he's 82 and has likely lost an inch or or two. Last I saw of him he looked quite ill and wondered how long he'd last but he looks superb in these photos, fantastic for an 82 year old guy, looked tanned and healthy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Aug/12
Not under 6ft2. With those long legs and arms he could easily have
passed for 6ft3. 189cm peak, 186-187cm today
jk says on 1/Aug/12
Looked around 6'3 in the Anderson tapes now he's around 187 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 15/Jun/12
Caine 188cm
Connery 189cm
Henrik says on 8/Jun/12
In Dr. No, Connery looked to be edging Anthony Dawson (who played Professor Dent) a little. I've seen 6'2" listings for Dawson, and I wouldn't really buy that he was shorter than a legit 6'1". So I would say that Connery gave the impression of pushing towards the 6'3" mark in that scene.
