Oh my god...he claimed 6ft4½ in 1992 when he would have been 34. How much more proof do you guys need? He more than likely got measured at that mark (probably later in the day). Rob has him nailed. 6ft5 of course you could argue but 6ft6+ is just pure trolling. You clearly have no clue how big a legit 195cm man is in the flesh if that's the road you're gonna to take even in the face of evidence.

nobody saw bull durham? I guess? costners calls him a 6foot 3 stud

i could not see him shorter than vince vaughn. He is probably 196 AND VINCE 195
Maximus says on 30/Aug/14
He is one of those actors that is obviously tall. I do believe that he states his height a little shorter to avoid being type cast. I believe he is at least 6'5" minimum without shoes.....he is obviously taller than Morgan Freeman in ShawShank and not many actors can to that to Freeman.
Danimal says on 14/Aug/14
Saw him on Conan about a decade ago. Had more than 2" on him. He was giving Conan presents for Christmas and they stood side by side. Conan was bare minimum 6'4" and has also claimed 6'4.5" for himself. Robbins had at least 2" on him. Robbins imo at his peak was 6'5" and change at night and a solid 6'6" (if not slightly over that) in the morning. 6'4.75" is just not true for his peak. He had several inches on Morgan Freeman, who was close to 6'3" 20 years ago.

Howard Stern can look taller than 6 ft 5 as he's rail thin.
Sam says on 13/Aug/14
Don't forget that Vaughn looked about the same as Michael Strahan, who admitted he wasn't the full 6'5"...Robbins has a slightly leaner build I think so at times he can seem taller, but I'd guess there's not a whole lot difference between Vaughn and Robbins with good posture. Stern definitely seems a little taller than that.

I get guessed at 6'7" or even 6'8" at times and I'm 6'5" tops (about 6'5.25" morning height).
Bishop says on 12/Aug/14
Rob, who do you think would be the tallest out of these three, Howard Stern, Vince Vaughn, or Tim Robbins?
[Editor Rob: Howard Stern never really looks a sub 6ft 5 and could be a guy who has rounded down from a fraction above it.]

Be honest though James, how many guys of that sort of impressive height do you see in public though who look good though? All I know if that if you really measure near 6 ft 5 barefoot after a long day with relaxed posture then first thing in the morning with good footwear you'll probably look 6 ft 7 to most people and stand out in public as a massive bloke. I think a lot of people underestimate how tall a proper guy this height really is as you often get guys who are more like 6'3" claiming 6'5".


I agree and even 6'3 guys claim 6'6

He must be pretty huge in person James as every show host says that same thing "very very big man" whenever he's on a show!! Just goes to show how tall a proper barefoot guy of this height actually is!

True. Someone like Ralf Möller who is a very strong 6'5 would look t VERY big in person even more so than robbins.

However there very impressive statures can't really compensate for there not so good 'looks' can it? That said you get huge guys like Dolph lundgren, steven seagal and darius Danish who have looks as well. I mean how smug and cocky can you be to be massive in height and good looking? They really did hit the genetic jackpot.
Sam says on 1/Aug/14
My brother in NYC, not the most reliable source given, said when he met Robbins he was big but not exceptional, would fit in with our family and about my size, but our family in made of ginormously tall people.

Yeah I though in shawshank looked bang on this listing here or a weak 6'5.
Realist says on 10/Jul/14
Rob i think he wears absolutely flat shoes. 6'3 guys come very close to him. Sean Penn almost looks 5'9 with him (who definitely wears 2.75 inch lifts). For a 5'7 guy you should be a head shorter than a 6'3 guy or 6'4 guy. I just about touch the lip of a 192 cm guy.
177cmGuy says on 8/Jul/14
He looked a weak 6'5 in the Shawshank redemption. Not sure if he has actually lost any height today though.

add shoes and hair to 6'4.75" and you get a 6'6" appearance.
James B says on 23/Jun/14
196cm not out of the question rob?
[Editor Rob: he might have been at his absolute low almost 6ft 5 but in Hollywood anybody who is a genuine 6ft 5 is going to really stand out.]
James B says on 20/Jun/14
Arch Stanton says on 17/Jun/14
Looks 6 ft 6 in that clip James!


Rob could Jonathan Ross be a weak 6'1 judging by that clip? Like you did with Michael Jordan maybe upgrade Robbins to 196cm? He really does look over 195cm in that clip for sure.
[Editor Rob: he can look an honest 6ft 5 there]
Alex 6'0 says on 19/Jun/14
6'4.5 Id say. If he claims 6'4.5 and 6'5 likely he measures 6'4.5 and sometimes rounds up as most would. Its like my tall friend I posted a pic with. He claims 6'5 but has said he's been measured 6'4.5-6'4.75 too
Arch Stanton says on 17/Jun/14

He really does tower over him

Ed, actually he has posed with James Cromwell. Here I think Robbins looks around 6'4.5" next to Cromwell.

@Ed Kline, I found a pic of him and 6'5" listed Howard Stern:

Ed Kline says on 4/Jun/14
It's actually kind of strage I can't find any pics of Robbins with a really tall actor. Not one pic with Vince Vaughn, Randy Quaid, Cromwell, Noonan etc... A couple of good solid pics like that would explain so much.
mike says on 3/Jun/14
Tim Robbins peak: 6ft 5 (196 cm) still around 194-195 today agree with Rampage. Morgan Freeman peak: 6ft 2 (188 cm) Tim had three inches on him in Shawshank.
moe says on 3/Jun/14
I've met him twice. He runs the Actor's Gang in Culver City, Ca. He's closer to 6'6 then 6ft5. Anyone who thinks he's as low as 6'4 hasn't met him. Don't take my word for it. Go check out the Actor's Gang yourself. I've also seen Jason Segel, Zachary Levi and Kevin Sorbo. They're all 6'3. Tim Robbins makes them all look like bitches.
JayofNJ says on 9/May/14
Tim is easily six foot five inches. He is one of the tallest actors around. Probably almost as tall as Fred Gwynn.
Sam says on 17/Apr/14
Yes, pretty implausible with almost no struggle to be heard either...Robbins probably easily has 50 pounds and 9 inches on Cruise. When did Cruise's construction worker (haha) suddenly become a ninja? WOTW is not Spielberg's finest hour, maybe I'm biased since I'm not a fan of Cruise, outside of Tropic Thunder.
Ted says on 24/Mar/14
Seems about right.

Btw, anyone else find that scene in War of the Worlds where 5'7" Tom Cruise 'takes out' 6'5" Tim Robbins in a closed door brawl pretty implausible?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 12/Jan/14
Around 194-195cm today. In his 20s and 30s he might've scraped 196cm. But, in Shawshank I think they just made him look even bigger. That cast had other legitimately tall actors (i.e. Morgan Freeman, Clancy Brown, Bob Gunton) who looked average at best next to Tim.
Goose says on 3/Jan/14
I sat next to him at the bar of a French Bistro in Union Square 15 years ago. I've got news for you guys - he's 6'7. Ignore the fact he lists his height lower, he'd get less acting jobs if he did because he'd be typecast which I'm sure his publicist told him years ago. JI'm 5'10 and have a couple of 6'5 buddies and he appeared to be 1.5 - 2 inches taller than them. Abnormally tall.
Lenad is sexy says on 8/Dec/13
194cm nowadays
Dejavu says on 27/Oct/13
This guy has to be 6'5. He looks 3 inches taller than legit 6'2 tall guys like John cusack and Morgan freeman
Arch Stanton says on 9/Oct/13
He did look a proper 6'5" in the Shawshank Redemption (arguably the best film ever made) but looked really weedy/skinny of frame back in '94 and looked probably 170 pounds at that height. He had about 3 inches on Morgan Freeman anyway, that's true.
Rusty says on 17/Sep/13
I bet 6'4.5" was a typical afternoon height but he likely scraped 6'5" in the morning and got his claim that way.
Dejavu says on 6/Sep/13
He was easily the tallest in Shawshank Redemption, looking 6'5 next to Morgan Freeman.
jtm says on 21/Aug/13
i'm not sure if mystic river is the right movie to judge his height from and he was 3 inches taller than freeman.
Blaze says on 11/Aug/13
195cm, same as me, but he's pretty old... and I'm 15
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 27/Jul/13
If he had just claimed 6ft4, I wouldn't doubt 6ft5 for a second. I think Vince Vaughn mightve done it aswell. But I reckon he got measured at 6ft4.5in/194cm at some point.

But could he have been 196cm?
Arch Stanton says on 24/Jul/13
Didn't really look a full 6'5 or more in Mystic River. He looked 6'4" range I think..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 20/Jul/13
Yeah Lorne I agree.
Freeman was at least a strong 6"2" peak, probably 6"2.5"/189cm.
Still looks 6"2" on the dot now
Lorne says on 20/Jul/13
If you upgraded him to 195cm, you should really upgrade Morgan Freeman. Say 6ft2.25in peak, 6ft1.75 now?
avi says on 5/Jun/13
big 6'4
Lenad is sexy says on 26/Apr/13
looks to be 2.5-3inches taller than morgan freeman.
Mathew says on 24/Apr/13
Tim Robbins is 194 - 195 cm range, same as Vince Vaughn. Michael Jordan is probably the same height too tbh
lenad is sexy says on 10/Apr/13
He might be closer to 6'4 now. But back when younger, to me he always looked 6'5ish
Two Jakes says on 9/Mar/13
Looked massive in The Shawshank Redemption. The height posted above is bare minimum. He's a legit 6'5!
James says on 27/Feb/13
In pics recently he's not looking 6'5
BEASTMAN says on 23/Feb/13
If you look at the pictures too quickly, there's an illusion Tim's much taller, but he isn't if you add a straight line from the tip of Morgan's head to somewhere along the forehead of Tim's head. Don't get fooled by Tim's hair. There is no more than 7 cm difference in the 1st photo, where Tim's posture is slightly better than Morgan's. 2nd photo looks a 5cm difference and 3rd photo looks a 5-6cm difference. Therefore, I average it out at 6'4.25-6'4.5 with a possible 6'4.75 peak. By the way, here is the interview where Tim claims 6'5. He also says that Morgan is 6'3, admitting he was less than 3 inches taller than him. Since Morgan is 6'2 and not 6'3 though, Robbins can't be closer to 6'5 than 6'4.

James says on 21/Feb/13
Actually in the first pic Robbins looks 197cm IF freeman is still 6'2, 196cm in the second 194cm in the third photo.

If Robbins is still 195cm then there is a chance he could have been 196cm in his 20s.
BEASTMAN says on 30/Jan/13
Doesn't look quite 6'4.75 judging by these pics with Freeman (6'2). I reckon he's 6'4.25-6'4.5. I take back my previous comment, because I think it's possible he MAY have been 6'4.75 at his peak when younger. Doubt he was ever a complete 6'5 though.

No way, he's still 195cm, he's only 54y and in very good shape.
BEASTMAN says on 21/Oct/12
I absolutely doubt he's lost any height.
James says on 12/Oct/12
Could be 193-194cm range these days
avi says on 29/Jan/12
solid 6'4
