Connery was known to get into fistfights, even after he became a star. He famously got into a fight with Johnny Stompanato, Lana Turner's large, strong, vicious criminal boyfriend. One time, he took offense with a drunken (as usual) Lee Marvin, and was only dissuaded from beating Marvin up when he was reminded that Marvin was making a movie, and that hurting him would derail its production. Keep in mind that Marvin was also tall and strong, and a former combat marine.

He was also known for bad mouthing Steven Seagal and getting his wrist broken.

Obviously Connery can't beat up pat roach

I think with the exception of Craig, all the Bond actors in their prime lined up without shoes wouldn't be that far apart. No more than 1in. I do think Connery is the tallest to date at just over 6ft2.
Aswin MK said on 30/May/16
If you want to get a more clear reference on Connery's height, please watch the scene from his movie "The League of Extraordinary Gentleman", he has a scene with Indian Actor, Naseeruddin Shah (Who is a minimum 5 foot 8-8.5), easily towers over him by 5+ inches with minimum footwear advantage. If he is only 6 foot 2, must be the tallest 6 foot 2 guy I've seen so far.
Aswin MK said on 30/May/16
@Rob: Quite funny, I think I saw an article long time back saying that Sean Connery was and is still the tallest actor to play James Bond in films. (He was supposed to be 6 foot 2.25 to 2.5 depending on the cast who were working with him).
I know Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton were around 1.88m (6 foot 2 inches), but it was clearly stated by several James Bond directors and fans that Sean Connery was easily the tallest and best among the Bonds.

Maybe you can compare pics of genuine 6 foot 2 actors with Sean Connery during 80s and 90s to check this fact. If you can google for pictures of Sean Connery with Roger Moore, Sean Connery is easily 0.5 inches taller than Roger Moore even with a bald head (This was a 50-year old Connery, mind you. He would have lost an inch by the time the photos were taken). This makes me suspect that Mr.Connery was a minimum 6 foot 2.5 at his peak.

Just my two cents, you are the height expert, I leave it for you to judge.

The problem is my most people discard bmi
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/16
If he was still 188cm (or 187cm at worst which is also possible) in the 90's, then 189cm peak is fair
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/May/16
@movieguy: I would respectfully disagree with the notion that people were healthier and fitter in those days. They didn't know smoking could give you cancer or that alcohol was the cause of most road accidents. Many relatives on my both sides of my family died of lung cancer/and pancreatis, not one of them made it past 55.
movieguy said on 23/May/16
Watched Goldfinger last night and was surprised how lean Connery looked, I always remembered him a big built guy. Although I realise he was a body builder at one point his physique looked much more natural than that of the gym enhanced Daniel Craig. When you watch older films you can see how much leaner people were in those days. Americans and British people were certainly not overweight back then. I think that the population in general was actually fitter years ago despite our modern day health foods and gym memberships.
James B said on 18/May/16
I don't dislike Sean Connery at all but to me he is quite intimidating.

Never really cared for John wayne but he seemed quite ahead of his time when he was alive.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/May/16
Arch, I've seen that clip before. I don't think he's being rude. He winks at both of them as if to say "I'm only joking, relax"...I certainly would not call that aggressive behaviour! Wayne was just a bully...

Lonsdale does look 185 with Roger Moore Click Here !
Arch Stanton said on 14/May/16
@Rampage I'd thought Michael Lonsdale 6 ft 1 but in The Name of the Rose Connery makes him look nearer 6 ft! If Lonsdale was 6 ft 1 Connery does actually look 6'2.5-75 in comparison haha!

@Rampage I know you've said some negative comments about John Wayne but what do you think of Connery Click Here ?

Could pull off 6ft3 beside Alan Napier in Marnie

Were the sets smaller in the other Bond films or just Dr No?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Apr/16
Out of bed: 190-191cm
Before bed: 188-189cm
James B said on 6/Apr/16
An imposing man in his prime in my opinion. Wouldn't want to get on his bad side put it that way since I reckon he's got quite a temper on him and was well built.
berta said on 6/Apr/16
i have a feeling that he was slighly over this when he was Young probably 189
James B said on 5/Apr/16
Yeah I think he still looked close enough to 6'2 compared to 6ft Harrison ford in last crusde
Z187 said on 5/Apr/16
The main reason he looked taller in Dr No is due the fashion styling then excentuating his weirdly, out of proportion, long legs... It often looks as if his trouser band is probably around nipple level... Although somehow he makes it look stylish!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Mar/16
James, I don't think he was quite 6ft3 either except after a good night sleep. But somewhere in 6ft2-2½ is quite possible, IMO. You can easily pass for 6ft3 at that height. Even in his late 50's he edged out Kevin Kline and Michael Caine (both 6ft1½-2) at the Oscars and fellow 6ft2er Julian Glover in Indiana Jones Last Crusade. He may not have lost anything by then and maintained his height into the 90's. I look at Ben Affleck, John Cusack or Lance Reddick...Connery in his 30's would have been level with those guys.
James B said on 28/Mar/16
Yeah I struggled to see 6'3 in diamonds are forever and if anything he could pull of 6'3 in Dr No
Anonymous1 said on 25/Mar/16
Bond tailors had him at 6'1.5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Mar/16
Arch, in those hotel scenes I thought he could look proportionally like a guy near 6ft3. But then again I take your point that he didn't look over 6ft2 w/h Jimmy Dean (who was no less than 6ft3). He looks a clear 6ft2½ in Dr. No and Goldfinger. He had at least 1in on Gert Frobe, Joseph Wiseman and Jack Lord (all 6ft1 range guys).

The 6ft2 listing is fine for Connery but if I had to choose between 6ft1¾ and 6ft2¼, I'd go with the latter. I'd also opt to give Caine the former.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Mar/16
DId he look 6 ft 3 in Diamonds Are Forever Rampage? I didn't see it. From what I recall he looked a good 4 cm shorter than Jimmy Dean in it who was 6 ft 3 himself. He looked 187 with him I thought.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Mar/16
Sean Connery - 6ft2½(189cm)
Richard Harris - 6ft1¼(186cm)
Jedi Master 5'11 said on 19/Mar/16
That's funny. They actually built a set to make someone look taller. I'd buy it if I'd see it.

Richard Harris was 6'0". Connery was 6'1.5".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Mar/16
6ft3 in Hunt For Red October. A good 3in over Baldwin
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Mar/16
Looked over 200lbs in Never Say Never Again and 6ft2 flat. But in Diamonds Are Forever, near 6ft3
James B said on 13/Mar/16
Interesting Tom they built things in Dr no to make him seem taller.

6'2 in my opinion is tall but not as impressive as how a legit 6'4 guy can look for instance.
James B said on 13/Mar/16
I'd guess 203 pounds in Never in never say never again would you agree?

He looked much skinner than pat roach in that film though
AlexMahone said on 11/Mar/16
No Tom, Connerry was much taller than Richard Harris in the "The Molly Maguires". And Harris was about 185cm and not 183. See more movies, please.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Mar/16
Looked 6ft2¼-6ft2½ range in Marnie
Tom said on 7/Mar/16
All the sets and furniture in "Dr No" were built smaller than they would be in reality, so Connery would look taller.

Connery was 170 lbs in "Dr No", but much fatter in "Diamonds Are Forever" and "Never say Never Again".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Mar/16
Yeah he hung around 6ft2 for many years I think. He still looked it well into the 90s. Thats why I think near 189cm peak is a very reasonable. He looked 6ft2 range next to guys like Kevin Costner, Nicolas Cage, Alec Baldwin and Laurence Fishburne.

BTW, I think he was about 190lbs in Dr. No which is quite trim for 6ft2. He was well over 200lbs in DAF and NSN.
James B said on 1/Mar/16
Rampage- I think Connery only weighed 170 range in Dr No which could be why he gave the illusion of looking taller than he was. I saw that movie quite recently he struck me as looking 'strong tall' in that movie. From what I remember in never say never again (haven't seen that movie for a while) he didn't look that tall maybe because he was heavier in that film? I don't think Connery was really any shorter than his peak in never say never again.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Feb/16
@James B: Agreed. He was on the stronger side of 6ft2 and people don't quite understand how tall that really is especially 50 years ago. In Dr. No and Goldfinger he stood out height-wise and looked very imposing. 6ft2 in the 50's-60's was more or less equivalent of what 6ft4 is today. It still is an impressive height..just so many guys who are 6ft (sometimes even less) are claiming it.

Rob, which range is most suitable for a prime Connery?

A)190.5cm/188.5cm
B)190cm/188cm
C)189.5cm/187.5cm
D)189cm/187cm
Editor Rob: I think I'd stick with B just now
James B said on 18/Feb/16
I think Connery was a legit 6'2 peak like 188-189cm. Could have actually hanged onto 6'2.25 in the afternoon on a good day.
Tom said on 15/Feb/16
Connery was slightly taller than Richard Harris, who was six foot.
Mr S said on 2/Feb/16
@Rob. Do you think 6'2.5" peak might be possible for Connery?
I remember you used to have an old bodybuilding measurement of 6'2.4" included on this site. Also in the man who would be king there was a scene where Connery and Michael Caine are standing side by side on a flat floor in similar footwear, Connery seemed slightly taller.Looking at his films Connery seemed to be 6'2" range well into his 60's so a slightly higher peak seems possible.
Editor Rob: someone mentioned the measurement, but I couldn't find the source so removed the mention. From watching early films I think he was around 6ft 2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jan/16
Connery was built like a 6ft2+ guy. If he was 188cm it was at the very end of the day and I do think he would have brushed 6ft3 out of bed. He was consistently taller than strong 6ft1 guys like Gert Frobe, Richard Harris and Kevin Costner.
Colin Dowson said on 20/Jan/16
Connery can't be 6ft 2 if Jimmy Dean is an inch taller...as he is clearly 2in taller in Diamonds Are Forever,so Connery is either 6ft 1 or Dean 6ft 4
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Jan/16
Might be the shoes giving him a boost.

Maybe 6ft1 range for Wiseman?

When sean met england FCs bobby moore, they looked basically the same height.... question is, how tall was bobby moore??
OddMan said on 3/Jan/16
His height seems to fluctuate quite a bit, probably one of those guys that shrink a lot during the day (it is not the same with everyone, some only lose like one cm, but others almost four(!), I have read in an anthropology book). 189cm out of bed is possible and I'd even say it's possible he'd dripped under 187cm during a long day.

Not a guy to wear lifts, IMO.

Mike T said on 28/Nov/15
I am 6'1", exercise a lot and have stayed the same for a long time. Sat next to Connery in a Sydney restaurant, by accident, when he was promoting one of his films("Never say never again"). Leaving at the same time, he seemed the same height but not as solid as on film. Later, in 2001, working in Tokyo, Moore was guest of honour at a dinner. Like some has said, a decent fellow. He was an inch orcso below my eye level and far slighter than on film. To all this - so what? Both gave much pleasure and enjoyment with their performances, hurt no one and made their way successfully in a tough game. That's the important thing about them.
Yah said on 21/Nov/15
I've always pictured him as a short man like 5 8 or something.

To my eyes always looked the way a 6'2'' guy is supposed to look. Has he lost height with age, I guess it's likely. Retired at right time.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Nov/15
6ft2-3 in the 50's-70's
6ft2 flat in the late 80's-90's
6ft1-2 in the 00's
6ft1 flat today, a fraction shy at worst.

I think he still clears 6ft when measured.

Agree with 6'2.25 peak for Connery. Still looked around 6'2 up until he retired, but he was probably 6'1.5
Spencer said on 19/Oct/15
188-89 peak I think, but I don't think he was 6 foot 3. His frame is pretty thin which I think makes him look taller. In Goldfinger he looks a solid 6'2. 6'2.5 tops
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 18/Oct/15
Recently watched 'From Russia With Love' which is a terrific installment in the Bond series. In it, he appeared at the very least 6ft 2in, and often seemed taller. He looked strikingly tall. Exciting film, both him and Robert Shaw were terrific, and the sequence in the train towards the end was so tense!
Spencer said on 18/Oct/15
I don't think over 6 foot 2 at peak.

This was taken just a week ago at the US Open. It's an obscure angle but Connery looks to edging Bradley Cooper. He has both hair and angle disadvantage.

Sean Connery - 6ft2½(189cm)
Timothy Dalton - 6ft2(188cm)
George Lazenby - 6ft2(188cm)
Pierce Brosnan - 6ft1½(187cm)
Roger Moore - 6ft1¼(186cm)
Daniel Craig - 5ft10½(179cm)
Braden said on 31/Aug/15
After a Bond Marathon Binge, here's my take on the heights of Bond:

Connery - 6'2"
Lazenby - 6'1.5"
Moore - 6'1.5"
Dalton - 6'2"
Brosnan - 6'2"
Craig - 5'10"

Connery, Dalton, and Brosnan are a 3-way tie for tallest Bond.
Dave said on 29/Aug/15
He was 6ft and 1/5(187) in his prime. roger was 6ft 1.25(186) and pierce is 6ft 1(185). And the tallest bond was lazenby his height was 6ft 2(188). connery was slightly shorter. they almost had similar height
Judd ISR said on 28/Aug/15
6' is unbelievable if Carrey is 6'1.25-1.5"...they looked very close one to each other....I think 6'0.75" for his current height is good!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/15
Connery still looked at least 6ft2 in the 80's-90's. I'm beginning to think he could have at his best, maxed out at 6ft2½(189cm) and woken up at 6ft3. He still looks about 6ft1 range today at 85 (in a few days). He's definitely not in the same boat as contemporary Clint Eastwood...
Mike said on 9/Aug/15
Around 6ft 2 in his prime and closer 6ft range now...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/15
Agreed, WAF...
WAF said on 6/Aug/15
Since most men lose about an inch of height around age 60, and since Kevin Costner was legitimately 6'1" in 1987 when they made "The Untouchables" and Connery was 57 years old, I think Connery should be upgraded based in part on this picture: Click Here

Connery looks an inch taller than Costner and consistently did so in the movie and in the press after the release of the movie. In the metric system I think the nearest whole number to his height would be 189 cm. Because it seems others have had the same idea, I think it's fair to upgrade him to at least 6'2.25".

It should at the very least be noted that his range in his prime was 6'2"-6'2.5".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jul/15
Could look near 6ft3 in the first 3 Bond movies...
Rory said on 26/Jul/15
Yh but when you think he was about 184-185cm at 82 yrs old that's how you know a 186-187 peak is nonsense. Solid 6'2 in his prime.

@Judd, several people including Sam I think believe Depp is more like 5 ft 7-8 too!

is what i said, if Connery is not much taller than Depp, then he would be under 180 cms and i don't think so...
however i don't think depp is under 174 cms, because he did look 1-1,25" shorter than Charlize Theron (177 cms) and they were both barefeet.
184.3cm (Night) said on 1/Jun/15
i wouldnt pay much attention to that pic if you search for the event Depp is all over the place. Standing on higher ground, even on a step at one point even. He looks taller than connery in some shots guess he is 5'7 now? :D

I can't buy anything under 184 cms for Sean currently...look at him with Murray and ferguson: he does look still in the 6'1" range, unless Murray is shorter than a flat 6'2"...

Arch Stanton said on 28/May/15
I don't think Rampage is as arrogant as some people on here actually about height. He definitely does have a thing about 6 ft 2-3, especially 189-190cm for whatever reason though. Sometimes he's right, other times it seems odd upgrading a 6'1-6'2 chap to near 6'3. Unlike several others here at least he's rarely rude to people or rants angrily to Rob about inflated listings.
Andrea said on 16/May/15
Lol, "enthusiastic" means that everybody must be taller than your listings and between 6'2 and 6'3? I'd call that mad too...
6'4 said on 13/May/15
Rampageclover is quite mental about strangers heights. Never even met one and still claims their hieghts as if he actually got paid to measure them. Sad and funny anyway connery is irrelevant now.
[Editor Rob: like everybody who posts, we have an interest in height, so let's not call people mad. Maybe he is more enthusiastic about certain celebrities.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/May/15
About 6ft3 in The Anderson Tapes beside a young Christopher Walken (no less than a strong 6ft)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/May/15
I'd still pick 188-189cm over 187-188cm for Connery.
Judd said on 6/May/15
actually i think Connery is still in the 185 cms zone, if measured...
Next to guys like Murray, Ferguson and Ronaldinho he did look that...maybe noy a full 6'1, but still 6'0.75"...
JJF said on 5/May/15
@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover - you didn't read my post it seems.
I said that back in the 50's they did not bother with barefoot measurements.
Of course THESE DAYS BBuilders are measured barefoot.
184.3cm (Night) said on 4/May/15
So at 82 years old he looks 184cm 6'0.5 and yet people believe he was only 185-186 cm in his prime??? Laughable.

He looked 185-186 in his 60's and taller when younger let it sink it for the downgraders.

In Goldfinger 6'3 at times did not seem hard to imagine for Connery

Very similar height to prime Moore... definitely not the tallest Bond, Lazenby or Dalton would be the tallest so far...

Sean looks about 184cm more recently... looks about the same with ronaldinho as Frank Lampard does...

@JJF: bodybuilders are measured barefoot.
JJF said on 15/Apr/15
With all the pics of him beside 6-footers I think it's safe to assume Connery was somewhere between 186-187 at the most during his 'peak'

That would also make sense as he was measured at 6' 2.4" WITH SHOES in his bodybuilding days (this was 1950's, nobody was that bothered with exact barefoot measurements)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Apr/15
I'd easily put a 30-year old Connery in there Affleck, Bana, Jackman and Cusack

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,

You do realise he was only about 31 or 32 when they shot Dr. No? The same age as I am now. I still consider myself a young man and I can assure you I've not lost height yet, well at least the last time I checked anyway!
Judd said on 31/Mar/15
yeah, i think maybe 6'0.5" is the best choice from those pictures, however you need to consider that at first Connery and Murray have both similar shoes, and also that Connery has very bad posture...i think (looking at his shoulder's level) he would edge out an honest 6' guy and if standing at his tallest he would be closer to 185 cms...
184.3cm said on 26/Mar/15
Looks more 184cm next to Andy Murray in that shot where they shake hands. At 82 as well..no doubt in my mind he was 6'2 at peak.
Judd said 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 said 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. ]

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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 said 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 said on 21/Feb/15
He looks very tall in his first movies, a very strong 6'2", almost 6'2.5".
Jake said 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 said 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.

@Filmfan G image the photo of Moore with Niven and Peck, he looks almost 6'4" LOL.

In the film "The Man Who Would Be King" Michael Caine is definitely taller than Connery.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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 said 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 said 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... ]

184-185 now and 188-189 peak.
AlexMahone said 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 said on 12/Dec/14
185cm today is fair.
Mike said on 11/Dec/14
Maybe 6ft 1 but no more than that, and most likely 184.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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 said on 3/Dec/14
Really? He looked more 6ft range in some of them!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Dec/14
Looked 186-187cm beside Andy Murray
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/14
Connery hovered around the 6ft2 mark well into the 90's...
Joe said 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 said 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 said on 21/Nov/14
The Offence I reckon was his greatest performance (that I've seen anyway).
Arch Stanton said on 21/Nov/14
It's British spelling The Offence actually.
Arch Stanton said 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.

Joe said 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.

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.

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".

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

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 said 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.

Arch Stanton, we have to remember that he was always a heavy smoker. The nasty habit tends to do that to you.

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 said 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 said on 10/Jun/14
6ft 2-6ft 3 (188-191 cm ) peak 6ft 0.5-6ft 1.5 (184-187 cm) today.

Also when being surveyed in The Anderson Tapes one observer estimates him as Male. Caucasian and 6 ft 3!
Arch Stanton said 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.

6'1" to 6'1,5" is fair for him when he was younger.
Mark said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 21/Jan/14
Rampage watch Last Vegas, Freeman does look near 6'3 in it.
Arch Stanton said 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 said 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.

@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.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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

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??

Arch Stanton said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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

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.

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.

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 said 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 said 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

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.

Full 6'2 but who knows the tailors may under measure by .5 or more. I agree can give stronger 6'2 impression.
@Rob
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 said 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.

Yes, he does look strong 6'1" range in some of the photos.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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 said 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 said 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?

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

I also think that Connery was while playing bond 188-189 cm.
Never under 6'2 in his youth.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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 said on 26/Jul/13
described as 6'2 a lot in his younger days. Good enough for me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said 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

"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 said 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 said 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.

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 said 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 said on 10/Jul/13

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 said on 27/May/13
i dont know if i can upload a photo,how to do it?
[Editor Rob: try using imgur.com or tinyurl.com to link to it/upload it]
walter said 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 said 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 said 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 said 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 said on 10/Apr/13
I admit I wouldnt rule out 189cm peak. I wouldnt go higher than that though
