Q: Why Celebheights?
A: CelebHeights documents what celebrities claim to be, offers our own estimates and provides a forum for visitors to discuss how tall they think any celebrity is. Visitors can also submit a guess for any star, which forms part of an Average user Guess, seen in the comment section of any page. In 2011 I ran a Height Challenge
, showing how tall people of various heights can look beside 5ft 8 Rob.
As part of running Celebheights, I've managed to travel to conventions, met actors and taken over 1100 photos for this site.
Q: Where is my Comment?
A: If a comment is gibberish, insulting or nothing to do with height, it's unlikely to be approved - I moderate comments to reduce spam and help your experience. Please use one name for commenting, respect other commentators, their opinions and the celebrities themselves.
If your comment is of the nature 'How tall will I grow', 'How tall am I', or 'How tall is this random person', sorry, but I am unable to help.
Q: How to submit your Vote (guess) on a Celebrity Height
A: From October 2016, visitors can Anonymously submit their guess on any Celebrity. This video
demonstrates Voting and Commenting.
Over time, hopefully this will help the site and helps visitors see the general overall opinion on any particular stars height.
You can still submit comments normally, but if you want to add your guess as well, just select your estimate from the drop-down menu under the comment box and submit it with your comment.
If you only want to submit a guess, enter a username, select your estimate and click submit. If the star has a 'peak/current' listing, ensure both the current/peak are selected or the vote won't count.
Voting is anonymous (unless you mention your estimate in a comment), so feel free to add your guesses without fear or influence. I'm the only person who sees voting, so whether you agree or disagree, I appreciate your genuine votes.
On the A-Z and Category pages, there is a quick vote option - simply click the 'Guess Heights' button to get guessing.
Average guesses get updated every day. Sometimes quicker.
Q: How can I search for a star?
A: There is a search option at the top right hand corner of every page - it uses Google, is fast and as the 'A-Z' pages have gotten larger over the years, you're best bet is to use the search function to find any celebrity you are interested in. You can also use it to plug in movies/tv shows to find actors/actresses from certain shows of interest.
Q: How can I help CelebHeights?
A: Keep an eye out for any celebrity who mentions their height and let us know. Help spread the word about CelebHeights by voting, sharing, linking or mentioning the site on your social media, blogs, videos or simply recommend us to others. And keep visiting, because without you, the site wouldn't exist, so thanks and I hope the site provides enjoyment on the occasions you drop by.
Q: Can I advertise on CelebHeights?
A: CelebHeights has been active since October 2004. If you are interested in advertising please do so through Google's Adsense program. The only direct advertiser I use is Dons Footwear.
Q: How do you find heights?
A: I try to find quotes from stars about their height. At the moment there are probably 5000+ entries on the site with an actual quote said by the celebrity (or from their agency resume) attributed to them, a large majority of which I have researched myself, with helpful contributions from visitors. That doesn't mean I agree with all of them of course ;-)
Q: Are the heights listed with shoes?
A: No. Assume every height as though the celebrity was measured barefoot. This isn't the NBA! I make no claim as to whether any listed height is an evening or early morning one, but technically I think you are better off saying your height based on the time when people get measured on average, which obviously wouldn't be out of bed, but might be about 5 hours after waking. After you've been standing for 5-6 hours you won't shrink much more during the rest of the day compared to how much you shrink in the time period from waking up till lunchtime.
As of November 2017, there are around 5100 Male and 5100 Females listed, with an average peak height of 5ft 10.75 for the Males and 5ft 5 and 1/4 for the Females.
Q: How accurate are the heights?
A: Celebheights tries to build an accurate database, but you cannot rely on using official resumes or actors own declarations of their height, because invariably a good percentage might embellish the truth, give their height in shoes, round up or not even know or care. Height in many cases is a best estimate. Even if you meet a star, your own estimate might be off, especially if you don't get within a couple of feet and the difference in your heights is large or you're judging on the street where pavement differences can cause confusion.
Anybody judging height on streets will find it much harder because most side-walks/pavements are built with varying degrees of fall (sloping) away from the building. You could stand shoulder to shoulder on what looks 'level ground' but one person's feet are 2 inches lower than the other person's. That's one reason why I don't get street photos - they are largely a waste of time for height and I'd rather not pester celebrities in situations were they don't really want to be pestered. I only meet them on occasions were they have chosen to meet fans like Signing/Convention events.
Contrary to those who believe otherwise, the site has no bias - the purpose of CelebHeights is to try to guess what I think each celebrity would measure. It's as simple as that. Liking or disliking any celebrity has absolutely no bearing on what they get listed at. I may, for instance, not be a fan of say Tom Cruise, but I'll list him the height I think he is.
Q: What about the sightings on the site. Are they reliable?
A: A proportion of the sightings submitted by visitors to the site are, to say the least, to be taken with a large pinch of salt. Unfortunately anybody could say they've met a star...the internet is filled with untruths which is one reason I moderate comments and won't stand for nonsense. One thing I certainly don't do is BS people. All the quotes I've found made by stars about their heights are real, the 100+ heights I've managed to get directly from celebrities via email or in person are real (for instance when Lenny Henry said, "I'm 6'3". Hugh Laurie is teeny tiny -sleeps in matchbox" he really did say this!), and the encounters and resulting 1000+ photos I've shown over the years should speak for themselves.
I currently only show photos of myself or Jenny and a handful of friends. If you have photos with celebs you are more than welcome to link to them in the comment section, but I no longer host or promote other photos in the description section of listings.
Q: Who operates this site?
A: It is owned and operated by one person since October 2004 - me (Rob Paul), the Editor. I only post and talk about height on Celebheights or Youtube.
Anybody claiming or posting under my name on other sites will be an imposter. Celebheights has been mentioned in numerous forms of media, including Online Media (like Buzzfeed
), radio, TV (such as Conan O'Brien
), newspapers (Sunday Mail
, New York Post
, The Telegraph
) and magazines (like Esquire
To contact me about Important matters only, such as bugs, corrections or image related requests, please email me in confidence: (RobPaul AT Gmail.Com).
Q: How tall is Rob?
A: The lowest I ever measure with a flat floor/wall is a hair over 5ft 8. Out of bed I typically measure around 5ft 8.75. In any photo I have with a celebrity I am roughly 173cm (5ft 8 1/8th). I have worn a variety of footwear in photos, but will always mention as best I can, any difference between my footwear and the celebrities. As of December 2017 I weigh 175 pounds.

Hello Rob, I just want to ask where would the top of my head appear with with a 6ft1 person(e.g. Karlie Kloss)?
I'm 172cm btw. Thanks and more power.
[Editor Rob: depends on how low/high the camera is, but your hair will probably be just below her eyes, and even in some photos with a 6ft 1-1.5 women, a 172cm person could look at the end of the nose!]
said on 9/Dec/17
Rob if you have the means could you have an archives of old posts(I would have loved to see some of the posts on the Andre page from like 10 years ago)I have no idea what it would cost but maybe you could do an archive page of the top 50 most popular people in it as long as the Andre the giant page is included,he is probably in the top 50 anyway.I think a lot of people would enjoy this,what do you think Rob is it feasible even.I have been posting here on and off since early 2006 and did at one point print and save old posts and I enjoyed checking to see how opinions changed and they sure did.I called out Veges because when he first started posting here he said he didn`t know if Andre was 6'9.75 or 7'1" but when I told him this months later he denied ever saying it,so it would be nice to have an archive just to prove what people said at one point in time.
[Editor Rob: the problem is I had deleted a lot of posts and trying to recover caused more problems, I eventually got back a portion.
I haven't dismissed the idea, but I'm not sure when I will get the time to do it properly, without it messing with search engine rankings.]

Hi, i'm Tianchi and i'm 14 years old. I think i'm tall enough as a girl and i want to maintain it like that only so, how can i keep my height as it is. And i'm the tallest one in our school.
[Editor Rob: at 14, some girls will slow down growth and maybe not gain that much more. Sometimes it you look older than 14, that is a good indication you might be physically a bit more advanced and not grow much more.]
said on 8/Dec/17
Hi Rob. I'm not sure of my height exactly out of bed but I have measured 184cm an hour after waking up and have had multiple measurements from around 1pm to later in the afternoon and was still holding on to 183-182.8 range. Does that make me a weak 6 footer? I always think I look shorter than I actually am in photos which irks me a little haha
[Editor Rob: sounds like you are a solid 6 foot.]

Hi Rob, I'm Michael a your very fan from Italy !
said on 27/Nov/17
Hi Rob, in the morning I meassure 183cm exactly. Most of the day I'm 182cm and sometimes i drop to 181cm at night. Would you call me a weak 6 footer or a strong 5ft11? Besides that, I have a friend who claims 6ft4, where would the top of my head be compared to his head? Really enjoy your site Big Rob!
[Editor Rob: a strong 5ft 11er I'd say, the top of your head may be roughly around his eyelevel.]
said on 17/Nov/17
Thanks for being a dedicated professional in your job and also being very helpful too!
[Editor Rob: well thanks, it is an enjoyable site to operate, though does take a lot of work to keep the site ticking over. I really do work nearly every day, although some days will take a long break.]
said on 16/Nov/17
Hi I am 166 cm and 18 years of age. Mom is like 155 cm and dad about 169 cm. I am eating healthy sleeping stretching. What can I do? What are the odds of getting to 170 cm? Its all I want. If you can give me a guideline to boost my chance please do because Id be so happy
[Editor Rob: if you are physically behind the curve (like you seem 16 years old to people) then maybe there is a chance.
All you can do is keep eating well, exercise/stretch and not measure height for a year.]
said on 9/Nov/17
Rob,how tall is the tallest woman among your relatives/friends? I'm just curious. I haven't seen many tall women throughout my life. Most I've seen are rather very short ones.
[Editor Rob: tallest friend who is a lady is about 5ft 11.]

Would you consider a page for Matt Passmore? I suspect he is not the 6'2'' as claimed.
Kim said on 1/Nov/17
Hey, Editor Rob! Could you please add a profile of Malu Trevejo? I’d like to know your opinion about her height.
said on 29/Oct/17
Rob, I have seen you mention Glenn being 5 ft 6 1/4 recently on the Kit Harrington page. When Glenn had his own page here you listed him 5 ft 7 and measured him 5 ft 6.5 before you wiped out loads of old pages any explanation for the discrepancy in descriptions of his height? Was he on his tiptoes when you measured him or something
[Editor Rob: he wasn't measured at his lowest height as he said the time he woke up the first time, so I estimate he drops another 1/4 inch and wakes up near 5ft 7.]
said on 26/Oct/17
Rob how would a 6 feet tall guy look compared to a 5'10" guy?
[Editor Rob: usually you would see the eyes of the 5ft 10 guy at the end range of the 6ft person's nose ]
said on 25/Oct/17
Rob can you please add turkish celebreties like neslihan Atagül or fahriye evcan ? This would be so nice
[Editor Rob: unfortunately certain big names in countries like Turkey, or Spain etc...I just don't have as much knowledge of these countries big celebrities sadly :(]
said on 19/Oct/17
Rob if someone measures 182.5 can they claim 6 foot?
[Editor Rob: it's close enough that many will think of you as 6ft.]
said on 19/Oct/17
Rob I think I have finished growing I got a spurt 2 months ago and I am 20 years old. I Usually wake up at 185.2-3 cm and after a long day at about 6-7 pm I usually wake up at 7.30 am I am 183.1 cm at 6 pm. What height is my height? What height should I claim? 183.1 cm is the lowest I have measured myself.
[Editor Rob: I'd stick with 183 myself if I woke at 185.]
Colberto said on 15/Oct/17
Hey rob, say someone is measured at 185.5-186cm
Would you call them a BIG 6'1", solid 6'1", comfortably 6'1".
Would they get the full 6'1 1/4" listing if 185.5 is a low for them.
said on 14/Oct/17
Please Rob just tell me you mentioned barefoot height or with shoes
[Editor Rob: human height doesn't include footwear, so we should always be stating our height as if barefoot.
If anybody gives a height in shoes, they are best saying '5ft 11 in shoes' so others will know.]
said on 14/Oct/17
Rob if you were to guess, how tall is this lady in the blue sweater? The guy on the right (tallest in the photo) is a Filipino basketball player measured at 6ft3 with shoes.
Thanks and more power😺
[Editor Rob: maybe 5ft 9ish, although she claims 5ft 10...but women do lie upwards, I've seen quite a lot inflate their claims!]
said on 11/Oct/17
Rob, do you think ever the heights on this site will trump googles lazy, copy and paste listings? I don't understand why they don't use the listings from this site when so much effort goes in to being as scientific as possible with listings
[Editor Rob: I don't think they care that much about accuracy in terms of trivia like height...it's more to keep people on their properties and as a last resort send them to other sites for the answer.
This site cares a bit more about trying to provide reasonable estimates.
said on 9/Oct/17
How many spotlight directories do you estimate there are? I think the British Library will definitely have some but I guess you aren't going there any time soon. Yh they do have some archived Click Here
[Editor Rob: well they published them from the 1930's up till now, although they are stopping them.
So they were every year, but it won't change much from year to year. Getting a set for every decade would be useful, although expensive to buy them all.
One thing I noticed is some actors don't have any height listed ever, some have a height at one point, but in future editions it's removed! Maybe they realised they didn't need to give a height, they were 'big enough' to not need one, or something like that.
Some actors keep the same height through their career, others change, sometimes they go up, other times down maybe after realising it's better being honest.]
said on 9/Oct/17
Just curious as to which height would you claim if you were in my shoes. I wake up 193.3cm and go to bed 191.5cm after a 12+ hour day. I usually tell people I'm 192-193cm or 6'3-6'4 whenever I'm asked of my height. Would this be fair or would you stick with 6'3?
[Editor Rob: 192cm is fine, 'just over 6ft 3']
said on 8/Oct/17
Rob, will there be Russian celebrities on the site?
[Editor Rob: I don't have as much knowledge about Russian celebrities unfortunately, I know more about US/UK.]
said on 7/Oct/17
Rob, where do you find old spotlight casting directory catalogs? Charity Shops? Has anyone scanned them online or anything like that
[Editor Rob: in the past I used the Mitchell Library in Glasgow just to look at them, but bought a few from online second-hand book sellers, especially some on Amazon I found.]
said on 6/Oct/17
Rob, have my you seen any of my comments? I know sometimes you delete some which are off topic I just want to know if you could still see them.
[Editor Rob: yes I have seen a few on 6th-7th]
said on 24/Sep/17
Rob, if you could give a breakdown of what occupies your time running the site? So comments what percentage then fixing bugs on the site etc
It changes from day to day when running a large site.
Ongoing technical maintenance - the code, the server. There have been days I have spent 8 hours and days I've done nothing with code/html/css etc. It probably averages out at 2-3 hours a day.
Comments - reading, replying. I try to read everything, but can't reply to everything. There are comments that are off-topic which people don't see - those don't add anything but I have to read them. Dealing with comments might be roughly 3 hours total through the day.
Updates, edits to improve pages and researching heights might take 3-5 hours a day.]

Rob so you're still 173cm/solid 5ft8 because I noticed that just 5ft8 is only 172.7cm
[Editor Rob: yes I'm more 173cm, usually about that mark at my lowest.]
said on 18/Sep/17
Rob, I don't know if it irritates you or not but a fair few of your pages redirect to the 404 message. Would you like me to point them out when I see them or not?
[Editor Rob: If there's anything obvious like a major page, just submit a comment thanks.
A lot of the w/ old weight pages are permanently gone and so are some 'duplicate/misspelled' type pages.
said on 17/Sep/17
Rob why do say in picture with celebrities you are only 5ft8? I honestly think you are taller than that and at least be 5ft8.25 close to 5ft8.5
[Editor Rob: I drop to 5ft 8 1/8th and I doubt anybody can tell the difference between a whole inch and 7/8ths!
I know in many videos the stadiometer always added 1/8th extra so it makes me seem a bigger 5ft 8 than I actually am.]

Rob I know it's your birthday month and I want to greet you a Happy Birthday 🎊🍰 but I don't know when exactly that is. 😹

I'm away to eat a big chocolate cake - since Jenny doesn't eat cakes of any sort, I feel I might have to eat the whole thing!]
said on 9/Sep/17
Rob, what are the odds of you reaching 2000 celebrity photos?
we never know what can happen in the future, but since I'm only intending to do a few events a year I think it would take another 15 years to hit that figure.]
said on 8/Sep/17
Rob, if you wanted to could you find every comment I have submitted over the last 2 years or at least ones that you approved? I think I must have the highest ratio of responses (from you) to amount of comments compared to every regular user of this site
[Editor Rob: I think probably 50% or so I gave a reply! ]
said on 2/Sep/17

Hey rob, if a woman who claims to be 5'6" comes up to the lips of a man who's 6 foot exactly. Is she truly 5'6" range, if not what range do you think she is?
[Editor Rob: unlikely she is 5ft 6, more likely 5ft 4-5 zone.]

Hey Rob how do I type a link
[Editor Rob: if you are trying to include a link to an image
then please use bit.ly or goo.gl to shorten the link and then in your comment copy/paste the shortened url (and make sure there is a space before/after so it converts to 'click here' automatically).]
said on 21/Aug/17
Rob when do boys and girls generally stop growing? Some say 16 for girls and 21 for boys but I'm not sure if it's true.
[Editor Rob: 16-17 and about 18-19 is common 'final additions' in height, but generally I think the 16 and 18 marks cover the majority of teenagers final growth. The minority may well grow beyond that by 1-5 years.]
said on 15/Aug/17
Rob, I'm just curious but do you know where commenters are generally from? I mean if you are accepting and moderating comments, do you get to see where it originated from? i.e. can you tell where I'm from?
[Editor Rob: I could yes, but it's something I don't really check.]

Hey rob, I did stretches and measured 6'1 1/2" at the drs with my back up against the wall and I tend to measure shorter facing away from the wall. On my own stadiometer which is like the one you have I measure an eighth of an inch more or less than 1 1/2" facing the thing. I measure the 1/4 range facing away from it. My out of bed height is 6'2 1/2". Does this make me an honest weak 6'2". What would you say if you measured this area 186 being a low. 186.5-187
[Editor Rob: more a 6ft 1.5 range at low...but since you can hit 6ft 2.5 out of bed, then saying 'about 6ft 2' isn't necessarily wrong!]
said on 29/Jul/17
Hey rob, I have a question. Are the wall mounted stadiometers like the one Michael Irvin was measured with the most accurate?
[Editor Rob: if the person installing it, also checks it with a tape measure, it could be within 1mm accuracy, but sometimes they might think 'oh 3mm off, it'll do' so no guarantee it is accurate...you are assuming the person installing it is doing their job though and prides themselves on accuracy :)]

Hey rob, what is the most extreme case of someone shrinking you know of. I know of someone losing 3" or so going from 6'0" to 5'9" in his 80's.
[Editor Rob: with some spine conditions (in which the discs literally collapse) many inches are possibly lost.
Jenny's dad lost 4 inches at least before passing recently.
I have an old neighbour who also in her mid 80's lost 4 inches so far.]
said on 15/Jul/17
Hey rob, do you think height correlates with what kind of car someone drives. I notice 6 footers commonly drive trucks in my town. I drive a truck too and I'm 6'1". I know a guy who is 6'5" and drives an SUV.
[Editor Rob: I'm not sure, but for taller people, certainly having more room makes sense!]
said on 15/Jul/17
Hi Rob! I've been a fan of you and your website for the last few years. I am pretty obsessed with height and feel that gaining height will give me a sense of confidence and security. I'm turning 19 in a month and I'm pretty worried about my height, I'm 5'9" so I'm not short but gaining a few inches would be great. Do I still have hope? I haven't grown much since I was 14, does this mean my body is saving up for one last growth spurt? I would definitely appreciate a reply from you the same way I've appreciated what you have been doing. Thanks! :)
[Editor Rob: at 19 the plates may still not be fully closed, so if you took up an exercise/stretching routine for a year, at worse you are more fit/supple, and if you gained any last boost, treat it as a bonus.]
said on 9/Jul/17
Rob is true that astronauts can gain almost 2 inches while in space?
[Editor Rob: with no gravity, the discs are able to expand in thickness, so some can end up between 1 and 2 inches taller.
It will go down once back on earth, although at least one astronaut claimed she retained over an inch of the height she gained in space! Seems hard to believe, but why on earth would she lie? I mentioned this case in a Video I did
There is a same smaller principle people try to gain height, by spending 2 hours a day on inversion tables, decompressing spines. Some people might improve their morning measurements that way...]
Colberto said on 4/Jul/17
Hey rob what do you see for an average height when my generation gets older I am 17. The average male height at 17 is 5'9" and at 6'1" I am at the 90 percentile for adult males and 17. Would 5'11" today be equivalent to being 5'9" 30 years ago or so. How about 6'1" would that be the equivalent to being around 5'11 1/2" 30 years ago. Being 6' in the 60's meant you were a giant my grandfather was that tall back then. Now 6'0" isn't as tall but is definitely the start of someone being classified as tall.
said on 2/Jul/17
Hey rob, is it possible to stretch your spine out? I have been doing stretches by reaching as high as possible in the air and it got to the point when I could feel my spinal discs pull apart or something. No bull, I used to measure 6'1" 185.5 cm exactly at home but now 6'1 1/2" and I don't understand. Is this too good to be true? I am excited about this I thought I was done growing.
[Editor Rob: you might have improved disc health so that they retain more fluids during the day and don't compress.
Or, your spine wasn't in an optimal curve, so the exercises have improved them.
The guy on youtube called 'Skintight Flash' spent about 5 years doing 1 hour a day trying to grow, he gained about half inch in total for all that effort and it was simply improving his posture.]
said on 29/Jun/17
Rob what do you think is the tall range for men and women in the US?
[Editor Rob: for me, once you hit 5ft 7 and 6ft, I feel that could be classed as start of tall range.]
said on 28/Jun/17
Hey rob I would like to understand your listings better. What constitutes someone to be a said height exactly like just 6'0". What constitutes the 1/4" 1/2" and 3/4" increments. I don't understand how you can differentiate between someone who is 5'11 1/2" and 11 3/4". Most of the people on the 1/2" increment listing seem to be the lower height like a 5'11 1/2" listed person looks 5'11". Some people on the 3/4" increment look the previous height too.
[Editor Rob: estimates are ongoing.
I'm trying to use a lot of the actors I've met as barometers for comparing others.
If you have an actor who you think can look about 6ft, but other times he looks under like 5ft 11.5, maybe 11.75 is the best fit.]
said on 23/Jun/17
Hey rob what would you classify someone who is 185.5cm tall as in say the US and UK?
[Editor Rob: a tall man in both countries, not standout tall, but in many situations may well be tallest in the room or gathering.]

@ Editor Rod: Thank you for answering that. Your opinion is valued. That is what I measured at my annual doctor's office visit. I know that is a hair under the five eleven mark. What would you call that, five ten and a half or five ten and three quarters?
[Editor Rob: some folk simply go with about/almost 5ft 11, really I'd go with whatever you feel comfortable saying.]
said on 16/Jun/17
What do you classify someone who measures 179.6 cm, exactly?
[Editor Rob: in countries like US or UK, it is pretty much a solid upper average, though more solid average if we are looking at just 18-30 age range.]

Hey rob, this is killing me. How tall do you think my friend is he claims 6'3" but barely looks same height as 6'1" me. Which one of us has the edge in this picture. I am wearing 1" sandals and he has thick sneakers 1 3/8" or so
[Editor Rob: he could have a bit looser posture, and may still measure taller - why not ask him to check your height, then help him check his - it's not a competition, just useful to know true height and sometimes having a friend measure is a good thing!]
said on 9/Jun/17
Hey rob, I would like to know what range I look and what I would be listed hypothetically as a celebrity. I will upload a few photos. I measure 6'1" exactly end of day and it is not uncommon for me to measure 6'0 3/4". I measure 6'2" out of bed.
Me with one who claims 6'3" doesn't look it you be the judge, has a footwear advantage of about .4 of an inch Click Here
Me with one who is 5'4 3/4"-5'5" Click Here
Me wth one who is 5'4" Click Here
A 188.5 186.5

D 187 185
E `186.5 184.5

Hey Rob, I'm 19 years old and 5'11.25 and my father's 6'6.
The fact is that I've a 35+ inches inseam who's more likely an inseam for people 5 inches taller or so...
It seems also that my arms are long maybe close to 6'2 (my wingspan) although I don't really know since it could be difficult to measure it alone.
My question is could I attempt a late surge like a guy such as Dennis Rodman did ?
It's been several years already that i cannot think about anything else, I feel like if it never happens I'll never get over it.
My lack of height has already developed some serious trouble on me so I see it as the only issue for me to repair.
[Editor Rob: torso can grow later, so I wouldn't write the chances off yet...it might be hard for your parents to recall, but always worth asking family to see if anybody can remember a late growth at 19-21...]
Blake said on 7/Jun/17
Rob, I looked at the London film con website and there was one guest called Phil LaMarr I would like to get the auto or photo with but i'm slightly worried that these are unreliable and complicated if you haven't been before like actors cancelling etc navigating where to go. Do you think it is actually worth going or is it a slightly unpleasant experience?
said on 4/Jun/17
Is 135lbs okay for someone 5ft8?
[Editor Rob: Jenny (my partner) is currently 150 and doesn't have that much excess weight...135 would be slim at 5ft 8.]
said on 21/May/17
Hey rob, what is the height of this guy. I know this guy who is very tall. I am 6'1" and he says he can see the top of my head. He has said 6'5" before but now he isn't sure. What range would you put him at. I don't think he is 6'4" because a 3" eye line is not in proportion and he looks like his eyes are at least 4" from the top of his head (Probably 5).
[Editor Rob: some guys at 6ft 5 will raise eyes a little and feel they can see over your head...so it could be the truth. If you typically are looking below his mouth, then I'd say near 6ft 5...if at his chin, he may well be over 6ft 5.]
said on 17/May/17
Rob, is it possible for me to grow anymore? Turning 20 soon. am 176 cm, mother is 173 and my father is 175. I haven't grown at all since 15, but I fear I might have suffered from an infection which upset my absorption of nutrients.. (high level of candida overgrowth) I'm 148lbs. I don't think I'm at my potential given my parents heights.
[Editor Rob: after 18, the chances decrease each few months till age 21...when the odds of any noticeable growth are even lower. A proportion still gain 1-2 inches from 18-21, but the vast majority don't. Take any growth as a wee bonus.]
Ben said on 15/May/17
Yes, I think you'll be reaching the 185, a cm more or below wouldn't suprise me.
But it depends if your parents or brother were late and how tall they are now.

I just noticed something while looking at the average height for males in different countries, the average is getting shorter every year since 1986...
In the 70's the average was up at 177.5 for males and now it is down at 177.2 for people born 1996.
[Editor Rob: yes, some average height will plateau and even go down a little, while others will have a steady climb and maybe hold closer to the peak average.
There's a myth that every country seems to be growing, but the data says otherwise. ]
said on 14/May/17
Hey Robe, it's me the 18 year old again. Just wanted to say that for the past few days out of bed I've consistently been measuring myself at 183cm (have grown about +0.4mm). I've felt this small change as soon as I get up.
My question is where would the top of my head reach up to standing next to someone like Karlie Kloss who is 189cm out of bed (I think)?. Assuming we just woke up.
[Editor Rob: you would be under her hairline, maybe by close to 1 inch, so between eyebrow and hairline, assuming you drop down to 181ish]
said on 12/May/17
Hey rob how much growth do you see for me. I am a 6'0 3/4-6'1" and 17. My mom peaked at 5'6" and reached adult height at 12. Dad went from being 5'10"-5'11 1/2" after high school. I have been the same height for a good year absolutely no growth. Doctors have said that I would be around 6'1-6'2" and before 6'3". I hit puberty at 12 and my growth spurt 1 year later went from being 5'9" to 5'11" in less than a year then reached 6'0" at 14 1/2. Thanks in advance.
[Editor Rob: in your case, if you gain anything more, take it as a bonus.]
said on 6/May/17
Hey Rob, I measure about 182.6cm out of bed and around 181cm exactly when I go to bed. What height am I? Also, I'm 18 years old so I was wondering if there's a chance for me to grow to around 185 flat night height? I've only RECENTLY started drinking lots of milk/eating cheese lol.
Please reply, thank you :)
[Editor Rob: if anybody gains height at 18-21 they have done better than most, because the majority still don't gain anything noticeable (by that I mean 1/2 inch or more).
you are in the solid 5ft 11 category...'just over 5ft 11']
said on 5/May/17
Hey Rob, do you think this is pretty informative? Click Here
It's not 100% accurate of course since not everyone is proportionate, but gets a rough idea and estimation for something that is proportionate for any height maybe.
[Editor Rob: depends on where the information came from, though plugging in some values, I don't think it's that bad a reference.]

[Editor Rob: yes it might be worth thinking about something like that.]

Hey Rob I'm 170.5 cm in the morning but you usually drop down to 168-169 in the evening ? Can I still be considered 5 7 or just say 5 6 ;-; and I'm 18 year old guy is it possible to grow a bit more
[Editor Rob: personally I'd say 5ft 6.5 if I was in your shoes...but I'm not, so say what you feel comfortable with. At 18, there is a chance of more growth, but it's not a big chance.]
said on 18/Apr/17
Rob, do you know how reliable or true is the "x-ray wrist test" to know how many cm are you going to grow? Sorry for my english bu i am from Spain. When I went to take this test at the age of 16 years and 3 months i was 1.67 (5'6) and the doctor sid to me that i would be maximum 1.70 (5'7). Actually, with 16 years and 9 months i am 169.7 at niht. I dont thing that i would be only 170cm but i dont know. My mum is 1.54 (5'05) and my dad is 1.85 (6'1). How reliable is that test?
[Editor Rob: the x-ray will let a Doctor know how far along growth plate closure might be...but it still doesn't mean you will gain inches.
If you are 17, then on average you aren't going to grow 2 inches, maybe closer to 1 from 17-21 would be more average.]

Hey rob, what height would you list me at. I measure 6'0 3/4"-6'1" exactly by doctors after a long day. To give an idea of what range I look I can see the top of my 5'8" friend's head. My out of bed height is 6'2" exactly. I have stood back to back to a 6'3" guy and was told he looked 2" taller. I appeared to edge out another guy who claims 6'1" by half an inch. Often get told I can easily be 6'2". I think from looking at pictures of myself I look 6'0" but I have a larger frame and a heavy set guy. Someone who is 5'10" is a little above my eye brows. Shoulder level is 5'2" chin level is around 5'4". 5'7" people are around my upper lip.
[Editor Rob: probably just 6ft 1, but of course would depend on how you looked with others.]
said on 9/Apr/17
Rob, my frind tries to claim he's 6'2" and he's so damn sure about it so I'll let you be the judge! :D
I'm homemeasured at 5'10 5/8 on average and my eyelevel is at the tip of his nose (Sometimes below).
I myself would consider him in the 6'0.75" range since he's shorter than my measured 6'1".25" friend but not by much...
[Editor Rob: yes it would appear close to 6ft 1, but under it.]
said on 6/Apr/17
Rob,how much is the morning height taller than evening or afternoon height? Most sources say 1 inch but for me, I measure 5'8 out of bed and 5'7.5 during the rest of the day(until midnight). Sorry, English is not my first language.
[Editor Rob: oliver, from the research I've done and other sources which used people at a hospital so could track height during the day, it seems 1.8-2cm range is very common average.]

Hi,Rob. First of all, I'm afraid to ask you too many questions recently.My eye level is around the midpoint of the nose of my friend.(Sorry, I can't find any easier means of comparison). How tall is he if I was 5'7 flat at that time(it was last year and I'm now 5'7.5)? I hope you'd reply ASAP.
Always appreciating your opinion!!
[Editor Rob: your friend may have only been an inch taller...if you were looking near tip of his nose, it might have been closer to 1.75-2 range.]

I'm 16 years and 10 months old and I'm 5'10.75" on average. After 10 hours of sleep I'm still tired and I always need 12 hours...It started last month.
I've never had a REAL growth spurt and I look like I'm 13...
Does this mean I'm starting to have my real growth spurt where people can grow inches in months?
At age 9: 4'5"
Almost 17: 5'10.75"
[Editor Rob: looking younger, might mean you are a bit behind the curve and still could gain another inch or so by 18.]
said on 8/Mar/17
Rob,I usually get measured in the 5'7-7.5 range. How would I be like when standing next to my cousin who is a strong 6 ft 1. Thanks for your reply.

Rob, I don't know if I'm 5'7 or 5'8 but when I go on tiptoes I'm usually around 5'11. How tall do you think am I? Thanks
[Editor Rob: usually you'd expect a good 3 inches if your shoe size was like 7...so I'd have said nearer 5ft 8.
Ballet dancers going on full tip-toes probably get 4-5 inch range compared to normal tip-toes.]

my own morning height is actually a couple of mm taller at age 40 than it was at age 30...]
said on 4/Feb/17
Hey rob, I have am going to be 17 in a few months. I have been the same height for the past year might have grown a quarter of an inch. I measure anywhere in the 6'0 3/4"-6'1" range with doctors most commonly 6'1" on the nose. Last year I was 6'0 3/4" could I be done growing? Mom was 5'6" and stopped growing at an early age. Dad was 6'0" and had a growth spurt in his early 20's.
[Editor Rob: well, with your Dad's genes, don't rule out the possibility...sometimes there can be a period in which you don't grow for 1-2 years but then hit a late genetic spurt!]
said on 3/Feb/17
Rob, do you think that hundreds of years ago with the average being a few inches shorter that people would have stopped growth earlier like instead on average 15 instead of around 18 like today? Also if you could list the average heights from the last hundreds of years in the uk or usa I would appreciate it very much.

Rob, I think my armspan stopped growing as I grew a bit more than a quarter inch in the last few months and my armspan didn't stayed at 181.7-182cm? It was a big relieve to me, do you think 5 ft 11 is unreachable at a 5ft 8.25 at start of 16 to end of growth? To me it seems unlikely as im not a late bloomer or anything like that.
[Editor Rob: one of the guy's in the Grow Taller Guru fake series (he was 16 and the guru pretended he was 18) was about this height, then over 18 months went close to 5ft 11, so it's not impossible!]

Jimmy Fallon, who I read has a documented height of 6 feet and was impersonating Jim Morrison on that Reading Rainbow theme four years ago I think, looks an inch shorter than Morrison.

Hey Rob, I was measured at the doctor's at 172 cm after waking up for like 3 hours or so, I am like 170cm in late afternoon. What do you think my height is in general?
[Editor Rob: you are a decent 5ft 7, I would claim that or 170...personally I wouldn't go with 171cm, although some in your position might say 171.]
said on 22/Oct/16
do you really shrink from 5ft 8.75 to 5.8125? I ask because I've seen some old measurement videos of yours where you measured 5 foot 9 in the morning and shrunk to something like 5ft 8.3 on the stadiometer. Which figure is accurate?
[Editor Rob: the seca stadiometer has a 1/8th inch error...so it gives every measurement an extra 1/8th inch.
Typically I get roughly around 5ft 8.75 using the normal tape measure, then at night about 1/8th inch over at my low mark.]

I would be surprised to grow 2-3 inches in fact! Does that mean there is a decent chance of 2-3 inches? Also is it normal that my armspan grew near 2 inches since last year, the same amount as my height increased? Its always grown in correlation to my height!
[Editor Rob: a fairly decent chance, but I wouldn't worry too much and just let it happen.]
said on 26/Sep/16
If I measure my height using a 7.25 inch box is that accurate or not? I stand quite close to the wall or whatever I measure against.

said on 22/Sep/16
This time last year I was 5 foot 6 and a quarter now 5 foot 8. Is that decent growth in a year from 14 and three quarters to 15 and three quarters?
[Editor Rob: it's probably within the normal range over that age range. If you gain 2-3 more inches I think if I were you I'd take that, anymore, see it as a bonus.]

I was wondering if you could tell me how much height people typically drop throughout the day? It seems a lot of people on the site say it's a full 2 cm but that seems like a lot to me. I've read other sources on the internet saying we only lose 1 cm or maybe half an inch. I myself, only drop about half an inch at night. Also, I was wondering if being flat-footed affects a person's height? As I read that part of the reason people tend to get a little shorter as they age is that weight gain affects the arches of the foot and causes you to stand shorter than you normally would. I was born completely flat-footed and never developed arches in my feet, would I stand a bit taller if I did?
[Editor Rob: from the information I've read by researchers, it seems that close to 2cm might be the average.
But you will find some losing half inch, others losing a full inch. The more extremes would be 1/4 inch or 1.25-1.5 inch losses...most probably fall within half to 1 inch range.]

I have asked many questions recently but I have grown exactly 2 inches each year for a long time. This time last year I was 5 foot 6 ish now 5 foot 8 ish.

[Editor Rob: if your father remembers gaining height between 18 and 21, then that means you have a decent chance of inheriting genes that might give a similar spurt...so I wouldn't give up hope yet of a bit more growth.]

Hi Rob, as far as I know the average height of dutch women is 5ft7 . With that I'd like to know your opinion if 5ft10-5ft11 is considered tall for a Dutch woman? Thanks
[Editor Rob: yes it will be definitely in the tall range, even 5ft 9 is still a good couple of inches above average.]

Rob, would you agree if I say that human´s height is 95% determined by his genetics, because I´ve seen a guy same old as me (17) and he smokes, drinks alcohol, parties on weekends. I haven´t seen his parents, but as he is about 190 cm tall, I expect they are over average too. Also I know other guy who is 17 as well, his parents are little under average and he is noticeably shorter than other boys in his class. But he is living very healthy, living in countryside, eating healthy, dealing with sports and no smoking, drinking alcohol. What do you think about that?
[Editor Rob: genetics will play the biggest role, but of course lifestyle, diet, exercise, illness might hinder or be a positive factor in achieving the tallest height possible.]

I played football for about 3 hours and when I came home I measured 1mm under 5 foot 7 and three quarters. Does runnning around effect height?
[Editor Rob: yes, any type of activity that involves running, twisting for prolonged time will effect the discs and get you to your low quicker...or as mentioned elsewhere on the site, possibly knock you down to an absolute low height, in some cases being 1/4 or 1/3rd less than your average low.
But we are talking guys like tennis players or footballers playing 3 hour matches.]

Rob, can I consider myself as a strong 6 feet guy since my morning height is 184,9 and my absolute lowest is when I have been 17 hours awake, have carried 17 lbs schoolbag most of the day and measure between 182,8 and 182,9? Also when I measure my height after 6 hours of being awake, it´s 184,0 and when I´m not carrying any bags, after 10 hours it´s about 183,3
[Editor Rob: you seem like an honest 6 footer, I would claim that if I were you, or with metric, just say 183cm...
this might upset a few people who lie, because you being honest effects their lie...imagine you see a guy who is 182 and he says he's 185cm...then you say I'm 183...this upsets his apple-cart!]

Hey Rob, how do you manage to take photos with majority of celebs in the same background (the blueish thing behind). Is it like a standard thing for taking photos in conventions? Or do you photoshop it yourself to make a pic clearer. Thanks !

said on 29/Apr/16
Hey rob I have a question. When one gets older and shrinks will they still be taller out of bed or be the same height throughout the day.
[Editor Rob: the difference between out of bed and evening will reduce as you get older...because the discs degenerate and aren't able to hold as much fluid as in your youth. But we are talking a fraction really, in some cases you might go from losing 3/4 inch to losing 1/2 inch at age 60.]

Hey Rob, how long does it take on average for you to respond to a question?
said on 22/Apr/16
I think if I REALLY straighten out, I can measure somewhere in the 166-167 range, but the thing is I have such poor posture, that it's hard for me to stand at my full height if I'm completely still. It's as if I have to "propel" myself into my full height as I'm walking down that street. Does that make sense? Is that a common problem for people who have posture issues? The 1m55 and a bit eye level is what I get when I don't have space to "propel" myself.
[Editor Rob: yes, but I would spend some time trying to do basic exercises, simple stretching and consciously correcting yourself if you find bad habits of posture returning.]
said on 22/Apr/16
Hi Rob: I've always assumed I'm 5'5 or maybe 5'5 and a bit. My eye level at night time can sometimes be right at 1m56, and other times it struggles with that mark being more reliably at around 1m55.8 or something of that nature, so is it unlikely that I'd stand anything under 5'5, given that my facial structure doesn't seem particularly odd? Thanks for the input.
[Editor Rob: if eyelevel is near 156cm then likely you are a comfortable 5ft 5]

if one person was 4 inches taller than the other, where would the top of the shorter person's head end on the taller person? I am guessing somewhere around the eyebrows.

Hey Rob, so my father is currently about 176-177cm, maybe even 178 out of bed. I am currently 177cm and 178 just out of bed aswell. My father claims 180 to have been his peak height? Do you think I can reach that? I'm 17.
[Editor Rob: at 17 it's a time in which many get their final bit of height, maybe 1-2cm...while others still gain further into and up to 21.]
said on 3/Apr/16
Hi Rob, big fan! I am 193cm in the morning, and 192 at bedtime. I am also an avid runner/lifter and the lowest I hit on a heavy work-out day is 191. How would you classify me?
[Editor Rob: I think saying 192cm is perfectly reasonable. Considering many people lie or give a shoe height, I think you'd find nearly everybody would believe you were the height you claimed or even taller (obviously because they themselves need you taller to maintain their little white lie!)]
said on 30/Mar/16
Can you explain me why many actors, especially men who claim they are f.e. 193 cm and celebheights has listed them 189 cm? Is it because morning/afternoon height or actors just want to look bigger by claiming wrong height?
[Editor Rob: a proportion of actors lie, but many won't. Another chunk might be calling a height in shoes.
If possible I try to always give whatever the actor claims, then people are free to believe that or maybe consider whether my estimate might be nearer.
It's still a guess though.]

Hey Rob, would you consider 5ft 10 to be average or tallish? I'm from Toronto and we have people from all around the world in the city and I notice that I am generally a couple of inches taller than most of the immigrants. Even compared to local White Canadians, I still feel I am of slightly above-average height. I wanted your opinion as I've read that 5ft 10 is "just" average but I feel that if anything, it is more on the tall side (though not significantly so).
[Editor Rob: 5ft 9-10 is pretty average, but you might find a very big percentage of 5ft 7-9 range men in your city and it just feels like the average could be like 5ft 8-9...]

Hey Rob I'm 17y and 6 months old. I'm prettymuch the same height as you. My mother is 168cm and my father is 176cm. I wanna know if i can grow a few extra centimeters? Also my father was around 173-174 till his 19th birthday.

Do you think those height/weight scanning BMI machines you sometimes find in chemists/drugstores (what I normally use to measure my height as I am still growing) are accurate with height? Would like to know your opinion, Thank you.

I'm 182 cm now and my reach is 187 cm. I've just turned 19. Also my feet grew a bit. Do you think this is a sign that I've still got a little bit of growing to do?
[Editor Rob: a proportion still get some height in 18-21 range, but it's a minority. Impossible to tell really unless you had an idea of parents height pattern and whether either of them gained around that age - but that can be hard to find out unless it was obvious to them and they remember gaining an inch at college.]

Rob is it true our height after 6 to 7 hours reaches to lowest? because my Height after waking up for about 6 hours is pretty much same as my mid night or late night height i dont shrink anymore.

Hey rob I have a question. I have been measured 6'3/4" 3 places 2 of them from a stadiometer by a doctor one of them on the wall by myself. Another time I was measured 6'0.5" by a doctor and once 6'0.25". All of these are end of the day measurements and I am 6'1.75" out of bed. Am I really closer to 6'1" or a strong 6'0" what measurement do you think is my true height
[Editor Rob: the 6ft 0.25 seems a big change from your 6ft 0.5-0.75. Not impossible under some circumstances to lose a fraction more...maybe on a bad day with dehydration your discs compressed even more.
If you are getting 6ft 1.75 out of bed I'd go with 6ft 1 which you might be around lunch range.]

Only God knows why, this site is quite averse about listing the heights of historical people. Nevertheless, here goes the height of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), from article Click Here
Mrs. Charles W. Heaton (1874), "Leonardo da Vinci and his works", Kessinger Publishing, Whitefish, MT, 2004, p. 204: «The skeleton, which measured five feet eight inches, accords with the height of Leonardo da Vinci. The skull might have served for the model of the portrait Leonardo drew of himself in red chalk a few years before his death. M. Robert Fleury, head master of the Fine Art School at Rome, has handled the skull with respect, and recognized in it the grand and simple outline of this human yet divine head, which once held a world within its limits.» If a skeleton of a man dead aged 67 was 1.727 m long, very probably in his prime he was much taller than that, maybe between 1.75 to 1.80 m tall.

Why don't you change to the Metric System? It's much more scientific, accurate and linear. Imperial units definitely belong to the Middle Ages! Instead of saying Glenn is 5ft 6-5/8 in you could simply say he is 1.692 m tall (and not the 1.727 m he claims to be). So much more simple, accurate and intelligible to most of mankind... 1 cm difference in height is important. With the Imperial units you have to deal with... fractions!
[Editor Rob: unfortunately America (50% of visitors) still uses imperial, so I have to list both. In an ideal world, metric would be universal.]

I'm 19 in 3 months and I'm 5'11 (180.5cm) and 183cm out of bed. Since my 18th birthday I've been growing 0.5cm every few months. I started puberty at 13 and I think I'm still going through puberty. My dad is 169cm and my mum is 165cm and my double-first cousin is 24 and 178cm. My other cousins have been known to grow past 19/20 years old. I have body and facial hair but I still look kind of young, the only reason some people think I'm older is because of my height. Are my growth plates still open? Do you think I could grow to 185cm?
[Editor Rob: it seems you have gained a bit around 19, how much more you could gain is hard to say but if your plates are still open (and it seems they are) I'd say just keep eating good meals and getting good rests...if you get more take it as a bonus.]

Rob, what would you estimate to be your margin of error for a typical listing? Assuming it's someone relatively famous whom you've had a pretty good look at, how close are you usually confident in saying your listing is? Within 0.25 inches? 0.5? 0.75? Might make for an informative add-on to the top of listings -- just below the height, you could include a declaration of how close you think you must be. For example, "X is 5ft 10in. Likely margin of error: 0.5 inches"
[Editor Rob: sometimes the margin of error might be in the listing. Like 5ft 9.75 could mean I'm thinking they can look 5ft 9.5 or 10, so going with the middle.
I would say a good chunk I'd place within a 1/4 inch but a fair wack in that 'within 0.5 inch range'.]

Hi rob, i measured my height today in the morning right after bed (9 hours of sleep) and i was comfortably over 178cm (178.2cm). And, im always a hair over or under 176cm at late night. Can i claim "about 5'10" if someone asks my height, or i am cheating?
[Editor Rob: claim what you feel comfortable saying. I would personally go for the 'almost 5ft 10' wording as that covers the range you are in. If you wear really thin sneakers and say 'about 5ft 10' more people might think you are less than 5ft 10.]

here's a test for you, rob. if a girl's mother is 5'8 and her father is 6'0, how tall would you expect that girl to grow, even if she is already 16 and only 5'4 ?
[Editor Rob: it could depend on whether either parent had later growth genes. You could have a situation of still gaining 3-4 inches at that age, even for a girl, if it's in the genetics.
But she may have inherited more of the shorter genes and not gain as much.]

Hey Rob. Something really exciting happens after a full nights sleep every morning. When I first jump out of bed and immediately measure myself after putting on my 1 inch running shoes I stand 6'0"! However my actual height after standing all day barefoot is 5'9 15/16"! Between my morning just out of bed height plus shoes on there is just over 2 inches difference than my evening barefoot height! I've always wanted to be 6'0" in barefeet! Never made the mark! I just turned 50 in August and I can say for sure that I haven't lost any height whatsoever as of yet! I was 5'10" by age 18 and began to measure myself obsessively after age 18 hoping that I would grow to 6'0" by 21 but it never happened. Oh well I guess 5'10" is close enough that I reach the 6 foot mark very briefly with shoes on first thing in the morning! Pretty awesome!
[Editor Rob: yes, it is unfortunate we shrink from morning heights, some people do lose a bit more than 1 inch, but the average is like 3/4 of an inch.]
said on 8/Oct/15
Hi again Rob. I was just wondering if you could give me your expert opinion. If I am 5'103/4" first thing in the morning and after standing for 8 hours I get down to about 5'9 and 15/16ths can I comfortably say I am a strong or flat 5'10"? My measurements are in barefeet.
[Editor Rob: yes an honest 5ft 10 in my opinion...a strong 5ft 10 might never drop under 5ft 10 and most of the day be a little above the mark.]

Additional question to my previous one on 30th September. My friend also measured his own height under my compulsion because he's very conscious about it and usually feels small. He was glad to find out that he's 170.5. At least that made him happy. But I believe I have a considerably little advantage against him barefoot. How much is a fraction according to you, Rob? I could round it up to 171, but I'd like to know. Thanks!
[Editor Rob: sometimes being within 1/4 inch inch means you can barely tell any difference, so really only if you put something on heads or go back to back and have someone look at both of your heads, could people tell that difference apart.]

But thank you for your answer rob.
[Editor Rob: it might be your head is smaller than average, you feel she's at the chin but in reality a little above...]

Hey, Rob. I checked my height using one of those ultrasonic coin operated height/weight/bodyfay/BMI machines and it was 170.8. Are these accurate calculations or is hair included in the mentioned scale?
[Editor Rob: some people kind of lean back/forward and don't stand as upright...the beam tries to hit the highest point, but if you lean back or forward it might not get the highest point of your skull and get your height wrong a fraction. The weighing portion should be far more accurate though.]

Hi rob, if the top of head of someone who is 156 cm touches my chin, how much height differences between us?
[Editor Rob: generally you would think 179-80 range was possible]

How tall is Jeffrey Garten (Ina Garten's husband)?
said on 17/Sep/15
Hi Rob. I have a way of measuring myself that I personally think is possibly quite accurate. Standing about 3 feet away from my bathroom mirror I take my tape measure and hold it under the front of my big toe and then pull it to the relative level of my head. Looking in the mirror I am extremely convinced I get a spot on measurement! The further back I stand from the mirror the more clearly I can see the top of my head! I consistently have measured myself as 5'10 3/4 out of bed and after standing all day I dip to a tiny fraction below 5'10". Do you think my measuring method is able to give me an accurate reading?
[Editor Rob: you can get a roughly accurate measurement that way yeah, especially if you stand several feet away and your hair is quite flat.]

Rob you are of the opinion that one doesn't grow that much after 18. Can you please say just a little about what made you come to that conclusion.
I measured 180cm in june 2012 at almost 18. The following year I measured 180cm again in september 2013 at almost 19. In august 2014 close to the age of 20, I measured 183cm. Last month (now approaching 21), I did another medical and came at 193cm.
The reason I'm asking you is because I discovered that I didn't grow 1cm for almost 2 years (june 2012 - september 2013) and then grew 13cm in 12 months (at over 18 years).
N.B most of the measurements were taken at midday (between 12PM and 2PM) though the one I took in june 2012 might've been earlier ( I don't remember the exact time but its probably around 10AM and 11AM).
[Editor Rob: the research on it shows that from 18-21 the average growth is small, so the vast majority won't grow. There will be a smaller percentage who do gain, even some gaining significant (several inches) during that period...]

Rob, in "Celebs my Height" section, in the lists can you at least put down which celebrity page has photos. You know, like what you did with the A-Z section. If that's possible? plz
said on 11/Sep/15
Rob are their any celebrities that you are sure are 5'11.5". That height is interesting to me. When I mean 5'11.5" I mean that is the height the celebrity most likely is. For an example leonardo dicaprio is listed 5'11.5" and that is because that is the top end rage even though he is proven to be 5'11". Do you know celebrities you are sure that they are 5'11.5". What should I search to find 5'11.5"? 6'0"?
[Editor Rob: sometimes if I am not so sure I would list someone at the upper end of the 'guess'. DiCaprio for instance, he could be anywhere in 5ft 11-11.5 range I feel.]

I don't believe that all VIPS lies on their height, 5-6 hours are much! A person is measured and weighted by doctor in early morning(2-3 hours , at most 4 hours since wake up), example visit 10-10.30 a.m (wake up 8 a.m.).
Now I don't know how much diffirence there is between a measure after 3 hours and a after 5 hours but believe max 1 cm!
Here in Italy is suggest measure own height of morning because evening bring shrink of 1-2 cms or more!

rob can you please do zoe sugg (and maybe other youtubers)? she said she was 5'4.5 in her 50 facts about me video but she often looks shorter, even in heels ??
said on 30/Aug/15
Rob, could you be an expert on hair lengths too?
[Editor Rob: hair can be tricky, but the more I've observed of styles and where skulls are, the better I think I could get an idea how much a hairstyle adds.
Sometimes what looks thick doesn't add that much, other times a style is deceptive and the person is getting more than it might look.]

I bothered to ask Mario and Isabel on Twitter about their height, for BKM and Roadrunner.
The organization they founded responded saying that Mario was 5' 7.75", but he prefers simply 5' 7". And, Isabel is 5'.
said on 24/Aug/15
Rob what height do you think is beginning of tall in your 5'8" perspective. I am around 6'1 5/8-6'1 3/4" at the end of the day. I feel short sometimes. I went to niagra falls today and felt short their were around 4 guys bigger than me 2 who are within an inch of me like the 6'1-6'2" range.
[Editor Rob: views of height can change depending on the height you are and the circumstances (groups of friends might influence how you feel). At 5ft 8, 5ft 11 feels tall to me, but generally once you get into 6ft range in public I think in most countries you are tall (or at start of that range).]
said on 10/Aug/15
Rob I have a question. How much height can you lose from age and do you think it's possible to lose this much in your 40's. My father is 5'11 1/8" at the end of the day and he says he was around 5'11.5" or 5'11.75" when in his 20's while in the military. He has gained 200 pounds in the past 20 years and he is 43 years old. He doesn't have any back problems just weight and heart problems. He weighs 360ish and was he ever that close to 6 foot and shrunk or do you think he lied about being a six footer like most 5'11 guys do.
[Editor Rob: Jakertini, I think it is possible by mid 40's to lose that amount of height, although generally most men might not really lose much more than a small fraction by 45, such that it would be hard to even tell. Some people have jobs which cause wear&tear, others might develop disc degeneration early, some lose cartilage, fractures in discs, some women even develop early osteoporosis in 40's.]

I found this site by many attempts to get as close to a correct height of Sarah Michelle Gellar since on the I M D B site which I've been using mostly for shows, movies, episodes and their titles to keep my collection of such things accurate and chronological. But, my insatiable curiosity always gets me reading any info posted by those who are not necessarily the Celebrity or their representatives, but by fans like me if they know something about whatever celebrity they give trivia about, or life stories, etc.
On that site it lists Gellars height as 5'4" and the same height for Alyson Hannigan. I've been watching my Buffy collection and every time her and Alyson are walking together Alyson is clearly inches taller. Also in the Showa Gellar typically wears short boots with what looks like at least two inch heels, and yet walking next to Alyson wearing sneakers from Converse, and Gellar her typical footwear, Gellar still is quite a bit shorter.
And for those who have written that Charisma Carpenter is less than 5'7" I strongly suggest try looking at her in this cast including whatever footwear she and the others around her in any scene and she is (as of her departure to Angel after Season 3) she is the fourth tallest in the show. Angel, Xander, and Spike are taller. Drusilla is almost the same height as Cordelia when she is standing up straight which is not often because her character is nearly always moving in crouching positions, or sitting or lying down.
And YES as one person wrote, just like the cast of Happy Days...BTVS show is a cast of mainly midgets so the central character won't look like she is standing in a hole most the time. Her scenes with Angel who almost always looks like he's hunched over (he's supposed to be my height at 6'1" and perhaps he is since he towered over Buffy. And then her other "boyfriend" Riley was also at least a foot taller standing with Gellar, but I couldn't find a print height for him. I'd have to guess he's at least 6' if not closer to 6'2".
It's simple between Charisma Carpenter and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Carpenter is very likely 5'7" or 5'6" and Gellar is likely 5'2" or perhaps even a tiny bit shorter. None of which truly changes my life since I'll never meet either or anyone famous in my lifetime, but I had to satisfy my curiosity and answer some remarks I've read on this site about these two women.

Do you give any bodybuilders' heights? I'm just curious. Toney Freeman in particular because he claims 6'2, which is extremely tall got a bodybuilder. But on his instagram he stands eye to eye with Gary Sheffield (5'11) and is a lot shorter than Marcellus Wiley (6'4). In a shorter man's sport it's easy to add inches if you're a little taller. Just wondered if you had ever looked into that.
[Editor Rob: I don't really put up much bodybuilders.]

Rob, thanks for the site, could you add the co-founders of Heaven Sent Gaming, Mario J. Lucero and Isabel Ruiz Lucero?

Rob how do I keep a large portion of my morning height. I am a weak 6'2" and want to be as close to 6'2" as possible. In the morning I can be around 6'2.25" or 6'2.5" depending on my sleep could I maybe be a flat 6'2". If I drink a fair amount of water I am 6'1.5" at the end of the day and If I don't get enough I dip to 6'1 3/8". Another question is what is my eye level I am around 6'1.5" at the end of a good day
[Editor Rob: I'd say your eyelevel should typically fall around the 5ft 8.5-9 range, somewhere in that zone. To keep morning height, well I'd avoid doing activities that put a lot of strain on the spine, like rotating movement, carrying heavy bags...but really, if you took 5-10 minute lie downs every couple of hours, you might maintain a better height through the day and not reach your low point. ]

Hi Rob, If I took a tape measure and put it flat on the ground straight right in front of me and took a pencil and the pencil landed at 5'10 1/8" for my eye level in the middle. How tall do you think I could be ? Thanks!
[Editor Rob: you sound like you could be 6ft 2.5-2.75 range]
said on 12/Jul/15
If you have distanced feelings towards height, then why do you run a forum in regards to height?
[Editor Rob: I find it an interesting topic and I believe I have made a reasonably entertaining site out of the topic.
by distanced, I try not to attach positive or negative feelings towards height or view the 5ft man as inferior to the 6ft man.
said on 6/Jul/15
Hey rob I have a question. Does it bother you when see girls or women who are almost as tall as you or taller than you. I am a weak 6'2" and I feel less masculine hearing about tall beautiful models who are like 6'4", 6"6", and 6'3". I have seen pictures of you with women larger than you does it bother you. How do I get over this feeling
[Editor Rob: height is a trait largely dictated by inherited genetics and random small mutations.
It is hard to explain on a forum how I have distanced feeling towards height, to an extent it is just a physical number to me.]

Based on the three pics below what is your height estimation for Facundo Arana? Thanks in advance..
The one on the left, Ivan, is 1.87- 1.88 m.
Facundo Arana next to Adrian Suar who is 1.68 m tall.
Lastly does it seem like a true mugshot to you?
[Editor Rob: hard to tell with that height chart. Was it put on the wall at the right mark, is he standing as tall as he could (doesn't look that way). From the height chart I wouldn't say over 5ft 11 was possible, but with other guys over 5ft 11 does seem possible.]
said on 2/Jul/15
Rob, what would you happen to choose more. Morning height or Night height?
[Editor Rob: since you drop a lot of height within first 2 hours, by the time you are out the door for work you will be closer to your low height than your morning. I think giving an afternoon height is perfectly fine.
Technically you can give your morning if you want, but I'd maybe mention it if you told people...you could be near 5ft 10 out of bed and a friend the same height knows he was 5ft 9 at 3pm...if you say 5ft 10, he might think you are lying, but say '5ft 10 out of bed', maybe it makes more sense. That person might not even be aware of out of bed height, they might check their own as a result!]

Thinking doesn't do much sadly. It's not expensive, nor hard, to make a phpbb-forum. The users would benefit from an addition like that, and you would definitely benefit the most, at least economically speaking.
I'd be willing to help you setting it up, and probably a lot of other people would as well. Please don't take this as an insult by the way. Just constructive critique from a long time user of this site. There's always room for improvement!

Hi rob I am a male that is 13 and 11 months and 174cm Out of bed and 172cm before bed is it possible for me to grow to 189cm or 6ft2.5 by the time I am a adult is it possible do you think I have a good chance of making it to that?
[Editor Rob: you could end up anywhere from about 5ft 9 to 6ft something. If you have tall genes from your parents there is always a chance of reaching the top end, the 6ft 3 range.]

said on 28/Jun/15
I've been a frequent user of this fantastic site for several years now. I have some thoughts I want to share with you though.
Have you ever thought about expanding? I'm thinking along the lines of adding a forum/discussion board. That way people can create their own personal user - and it would be a lot easier navigating through different sections. Have one section for growth, proportions, shoe lifts, stretching, off topic +++. I'm willing to bet that this community would eventually become a lot more knitted that way.
There's definitely a lot of potential in your website. Thank you for being a pioneer!
[Editor Rob: yes I have thought about that many times]
