Seemed 6ft ½ or 6ft ¾ peak. Probably the former. Strong listing.

184 cm is perfect for him. Saw Edward Scissorhands again (a favourite film of mine; ensorcelling) and he appeared around 6ft 0.5. Was often wearing big boots/solid sneakers too. Iconic actor. Would you agree he looked around 1.84 in that flick, Rob?
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 22/May/22
What are the chances of 6ft 0.25, Rob?
Editor Rob
Might be at an age where he's now lost height and not over 6ft

It's silly that Hollywood made Hall appear over 6'3" in Edward Scissorhands. 5'11" and most have figured it out.
Geebee said on 30/Apr/21
If you watch psych he is consistently over an inch shorter than Timothy Omundson who is 6’0”. He also doesn’t look that tall either just by himself. My guess is 5’10 3/4”
Eureka said on 22/Mar/21
I never would have thought 6’1” for this guy. I wonder how tall his Dead Zone co-star Chris Bruno might be? In all the bellow pictures AMH appears just a bit taller than Bruno while wearing flat converse shoes. Meanwhile Bruno is wearing police like boots which i wear and know for a fact elevate your height at least 1.5” to your normal height.

Does anyone have a guess for Bruno?
Editor Rob
Bruno might be 5ft 11-11.5 range
Gabe B said on 25/Sep/20
This seems way off. He looks 3/4-1inch shorter than 6’0” Timothy Omundson in Pysch. There’s not way he’s much over 5’11” maybe 5’11 1/4”.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Dec/19
He’s easily 185-186cm zone
AD said on 6/Apr/19
Looked eye to eye with 6'1" Judge Reinhold in an episode of Dead Zone. 1984-1985 must have been his biggest growth spurt period. There's a big difference in his height between Breakfast Club and Weird Science which were made within the same year, looked to grow from 5'9.5" to the 6ft mark. By 1988 in Johnny Be Good he looked an inch taller than 6ft Paul Gleason and 2 inches taller than 5'11" Uma Thurman … any guess under 6ft just doesn't add up. Here he is with 5'11" Uma Thurman Click Here

I thought he looked about 2 or 3 inches shorter than 6'2" will smith in, 6 degrees of separation. Id say he's between 5'11" and 6'2". The 6'2" Google listings are ridiculous!
Gaspergoo said on 21/Jan/19
In dead zone he did not come across as being short. He seemed at minimum 6'1" thing you know someone is going to say he is 5'9".....6'minimum less...not a short actor.
Thepowerhouseofthecellboiiii said on 27/Nov/18
Well if Anthony was like 15 during the filming for the breakfast club and he was 5’9.... that’s two inches above the average height for a 15 year old so I’d say about 5’11” or a week 6’0”
Tymmo said on 17/Apr/17
@Ravi he looks around 5'10'' in that clip
Charlie said on 16/Mar/17
in a recent photo he stood 2 inches taller than Judd Nelson and Judd is around 5 ft 6 inches. Judd was 2 inches taller than 5 ft 4.5 Emilio Estevez in the Breakfast Club and he had boots on too. I would put Anthony Michael Hall anywhere between 5 ft 8 to 5 ft 9 going by the recent photos i see of him and Judd.
roy said on 4/Dec/16
Listed on Google at 6'2. No way he is close to that unless it's morning height with boots on. I think he is between 5'11 and 6'.
Joseph said on 16/Nov/16
I thought he was 6'2
James said on 25/Sep/16
I'd give give him a solid six foot flat. He has a long forehead that gives him a bit of height, but he was a good inch or two less than will smith who is about six foot one though he is always listed six foot two or three. As far as the breakfast club height he was only fifteen when they filmed that in the summer of 84.
Sonny Black said on 14/Aug/16
He looked more than an inch shorter than 6'1 Will Smith in Six Degrees of Seperation
James B said on 13/Aug/16
Wasn't much taller than Johnny depp
Mastro said on 26/Apr/16
Saw him at a convention in New Jersey a few years ago (maybe 2012, after a web search). I'm 6'2.5" or so - I had a few inches on him when I walked right by him in a hallway. He's 5'11- 6' - no more.
... said on 13/Oct/15
he grew like 5 inches during NLV with Chevy Chase said that when they came back to film the ending of the movie that he had grown a lot by then.
Mastro said on 7/Aug/15
I made a point to walk by AMH at a convention. I'm a bit over 6'2" and I had at least two inches on him.
JM said on 30/Jun/15
Met AMH in Providence in Nov 2014. I'm 6'3" and son is 5'10". He and my son were eyeball to eyeball. I'd give him 5'11" tops.
Chad said on 31/May/15
Anything over 6 foot is laughable for this guy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Apr/15
A very solid 6ft1 guy at least
Amaze said on 19/Mar/15
lol I think being ravi was my first post

@CDS he's defo 6'0+ imo 185cm daytime
the shredder said on 23/Oct/14
No way is this guy even the full 6'1 , recent pics with The Breakfast Club cast he looks about 5'11.5.
AD said on 13/May/14
Really hard to tell in that clip Ravi cause you can't see their footwear .... but if they're wearing trainers / sports shoes then I'd say he was touching 6ft which would be about right cause the credit says 1985, he would have been 17 and around the time of Weird Science where he looks that height. Not quite his finished height though cause he was taller in Johnny Be Good and Edward Scissorhands
Ravi said on 11/May/14
how tall do you think he looks next to Madonna here? Click Here
shes 5'3.5
AD said on 23/Apr/14
I agree with a lot you say there Ravi ...although as far as The Breakfast Club goes, its release was Feb 1985, so it would have been filmed in 1984 possibly around the same time as it was set which was March 1984 ...AMH would have been turning 16 at this time so it is possible he was still 15 in rehearsals. I'm not sure he looked anywhere near 6'1" at any point in the film but maybe near 6ft by Weird Science which was made more when he was turning 17, then 6'1" by the time he was 20 in Johnny Be Good ...maybe even a little bit more 2 years later in Edward Scissorhands but his larger/athletic build by that time might have given the impression of being even taller... but yes certainly did a lot of growing between 16 and 20.
Ravi said on 28/Mar/14
Yep, Anthony Michael hall had a lot of growth spurts
in 1983, national lampoons vacation he was getting aloooooot of height. he was around 5'3'' and then by the end of the film he grew to 5'6

in 1985 judd nelson who was bender, 5.9.5 said
Nelson has stated that Hall was in a rapid growth spurt during the course of the film, saying that he was two inches taller than Hall at auditions, half an inch taller during rehearsals, and by the end of the shoot, Hall was taller than him.(hall was 17 during this), so he went from 5'7.5 to taller than judd, to a final 6'1.

look how different he looks from weird science/ breakfast club/ sixteen candles to 4 years later in Edward scissorhands. some major growing right there.
AJ said on 27/Mar/14
Have to agree with Lorne, he is shorter than odmunson, who is suspect is over his listed height.
the shredder said on 5/Feb/14
6'1 seems right , 6'2 would make Johnny Depp 5'11
Lorne said on 3/Feb/14
Sorry Rampage, that's impossible. He is an inch shorter than Timothy Omundson on Psych, and I think he is 6ft1.5-6ft1.75,/187cm range. Rob could this guy be closer to 184cm? Unless Omundson is actually 6'2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Sep/13
He does look 6ft2 at times.
186-187cm is closer than 185cm, IMO.

"Anthony Michael Hall's height is 6ft 1.5in (187cm)"

But 6ft1.25 is equally acceptable.
Robert said on 21/Jun/13
It's weird how tall they made Emilio Estevez look in movies if this guy is really 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Sep/12
He was a late bloomer. I think he'd measure somewhere between 6ft1-6ft2, possibly closer to the latter. Rob, do you think an upgrade to 187cm is possible?
Editor Rob
still think he's a 6ft 1 guy, not 6ft 2
Bon_ said on 14/Jan/12
187 cm (6'1.5 - 6'1.75)
sam said on 26/Dec/11
In the breakfast club he was only 5'10
AD said on 19/Aug/11
I've seen Breakfast Club hundreds of times, the only reference to his height was when Ally Sheedy's character quotes from his drivers license 'five nine and a half, 130 pounds' ... now here's a theory, that film was released very early in 1985 so it should have been filmed in 1984 any time from when AMH turned 16 and was obviously still growing fast. Weird Science was released in 1985 but much later, so he was probably nearer to 17, in fact you can see at the end of the film he's around the same height or taller than 5'11 Bill Paxton. Johnny Be Good would have been filmed when he was 19, you now see him a little taller than 184cm Paul Gleason. Edward Scissorhands would have been filmed when he was 21 and by now he's reached his full height of 186/187cm.

Dominic says on 16/Aug/11 Legend says on 2/Apr/11 Yes he did, after Bender asked him how tall he was. He said 5'10. I distinctly remember this. It could have been someone else who asked him, but he did answer with 5'10. I guarantee it. I've watched the movie many times and Bender never asks how tall Brian is. In fact height is never discussed in the movie... I actually think AMH was 5'10.5 / 5'11 in Breakfast club because he was always an inch taller than Bender... His license said 5'9.5" in the movie.

He said he was 5'10 in the breakfast club.

When did he say this? His drivers license said 5'9.5" in the movie, but he never stated his height once in the movie at any point.

hey i know that guy said on 10/Mar/11
anthony filled out big time in his early 20s. he doesn't even look like the geeky "farmer ted" from 16 candles, hard to believe it's the same guy. from age 16 to age 22, anthony went from 5-9 and about 130 pounds to 6-2, 200 pounds. he is the classic "late bloomer".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Feb/11
Rob 186-187cm is closer surely?

Editor Rob
there's always a chance a fraction over 6ft 1, I'm not yet convinced he is 6ft 2 though.
5'8 said on 27/Jan/11
6'2 Rob? He has 4" on 5'10 Judd Nelson, Rob.

Get the movie Freddy Got Fingered, Anthony is no more than 1 inch shorter than Tom Green
AD said on 3/Apr/09
Yeah I agree Patrick...I think what makes people believe he's not as tall as that is that he kept growing to an unusually late age, I think from Edward Scissorhands onwards he's been at his full height of 6ft 1 or even 6 ft 2
Patrick said on 30/Mar/09
6 foot tall? My "foot"! This man is no less than 6'1.5. Perhaps he's or was 6'2. He's tall and clearly taller than many others in his show.
herodotus said on 19/Jan/09
who cares his best roles were from the 80's let it go....old he's 6 foot...

Always looked around my height (6'1")
Richard said on 29/Apr/08
He looked so tall next to Winona Ryder in Edward Scissorhands and she is only 5'4. I do think 6'1 -6'2 is correct because she looked like a hobbit compared to him in that movie.
nate said on 25/Apr/08
in freddy got fingered he looked an inch shorter than 6'3 tom green so 6'2 is def possible
patrick said on 18/Mar/08
In happy accident with D
Clark said on 16/Mar/08
FYI...coooorection. According to the NFL--Jim is listed at 6 feet. So that would make AMH --not so tall. He was 20 years of age in the movie johnny be good. Playing a Texas football player, and always wearing those boots. Cheers if he is 6'2", but I doubt it. I woulsd like to see a new pic of him next to Tom Welling, Brandon Routh, or Hugh Jackman...
nate said on 8/Mar/08
he was only 18 or 19 when that was made he couldve been still growing
clark . said on 11/Feb/08
In the movie Johnnie Be Good....he was wearing boots and he was not taller than the six foot one Jim Mc Mahon who was wearing slippers.!!!!!!!!
Hugo said on 9/Oct/07
In the Breakfast club movie, Ally Sheedy's character(can't remember the name), Ally says that Anthony's height is 5'9.5"

Most DMV's do not print .5" heights and they make you round to the nearest. So in Anthony's case, they'd make him round to 5'10".
AD said on 20/Jul/07
Yes, I agree, although the point that I'm making is that Editor Rob has him listed here as 6'1"...surely he should change this to 6'2" given all the pictures and evidence below?
After all..this is a site for listing celeb's heights as accurately as possible.
What do you think Rob?
Juillet said on 5/Jul/07
He's 6'2" - i know him. Let it go.
Sam said on 14/Jun/07
I saw him in Boston a few months ago. I'd say looked around 6'2-6'2.5/.
AD said on 12/Jun/07
Well... truth is that Hall was only 15 coming on 16 when making Breakfast club in early 1984 (released in early 1985) and doesn't look much taller than 5'9.5". Look at him in Weird Science made in 1985, a year later when he was 17, he's suddenly pushing 6 foot. I've read that he had a late puberty... he looks about 6'2" and beefed up ever since Edward Scissorhands.
patrick said on 12/Apr/07
Thanks a lot for the tip AD ! Wow, if Sandra is reall that tall, he cannot be less than 6'2 !
AD said on 5/Apr/07
Patrick, scroll down to my message on 14th Feb... there's 3 links that say 'click here' in blue. Anthony's partner Sandra Guerard (5'10")has heels on making her around 6ft - 6'1". He's a big guy.
patrick said on 4/Apr/07
AD: what pictures ? I wishi'd seen them since they would tend to prove i am right ah ah ah !
AD said on 30/Mar/07
Rob, take a look at those pictures I posted here on Feb 14th. Do you think you should still be listing him as 6'1"? I think more signs point towards Anthony being 6'2".
patrick said on 5/Mar/07
As for me, he is 6'2 but i have no proof.
i'd just add that David Ogden Stiers (rev. Gene Purdy) is known for being very tall (6'4) and he NEVER towers over A. Michael; just taller; he's 6'2.
AD said on 16/Feb/07
Thanks Footballed28....with every other listing of Anthony's height being 6'2"...and going on those photos, I don't think he's above 6'2"..but I'm starting to think that he's not below. Also, I've just seen an episode of Dead Zone and he's much taller than Chris Bruno (Sheriff Walt) who's listed as 6'0" on a couple of sites, and Sean Patrick Flanery who's 5'11". What do you think Rob...should you not have kept him listed at 6'2" looking at the photos I gave?
footballed28 said on 15/Feb/07
AD looking at the pictures you provided I am starting to think either Hall is taller than 6'2 or Guerard is really only about 5'8
footballed28 said on 11/Feb/07
AD my man isnt it obvious that Hall is standing way closer to the camera than Guerard?!!! I mean come on that is not a good picture to compare heights
AD said on 9/Feb/07
Ok...Rob says above that Michael's partner Sandra Guerard is 5'10". Take a look at pictures of them together. In all pictures that I can see, she's quite obviously wearing heels making her 6'-6'1". Have a look at this picture just as an example... the idea that he's as tall as 6'1" - 6'2" ain't that crazy!

footballed28 said on 8/Feb/07
hey Rob I never said he wasnt 6'+...heck he could very well be a solid 6 footer...but never 6'2...he just doesnt have the frame for for Bill Gates, I peg him 5'9 1/2 any day...he is not a solid 5'10
RobertJ said on 7/Feb/07
footballed28, I'm not understanding your logic. Just because the person an actor is playing is shorter or taller, doesn't mean they can't accurately portray the real life person. 6'3'' Hugh played wolverine whose 5'3'' in the comics. Nick Stahl whose averaged height portrayed a real life person who was 6'3'' and Persian in Bully. Re-watch pirates of silicon valley, he's slouching throughout the entire movie but compare him to Noah and you'll see he's his height even slouching. Anthony is 6 feet flat minimum.
AD said on 7/Feb/07
I'd agree that he's not 6'2" barefoot... here's 2 photos of 5'5" Ally Sheedy wearing 3" heels (making her 5'8") next to Anthony Michael Hall wearing flat trainers. Taking into account a little slouching, he's about 6 inches taller than her in the pic which I guess will make him around the 6'1" mark barefoot. In the Dead Zone, he always looks one of the tallest of the cast.

footballed28 said on 5/Feb/07
did any of you watch that movie where he played Bill Gates (who is 5'9 - 5'10)...he sure didnt look tall there...maybe average..I doubt a legit 6'2 guy could play Gate's 5'10 (doubtful) frame.
the shredder said on 3/Feb/07
His license in The Breakfast Club was actually said to be 5'9 1/2 and 130 lbs ! well to me he really did look a legit 5'9.5 in Weird Science for sure when he stood next to Ilan Mitchell-Smith (whos license in Weird Science is listed as * doubtful * 5'8 ! ) and Bill Paxton who I really think is closer to 6'0 and was barefoot half the movie ! I do think Anthony Michael Hall did grow some after that , but I do doubt he grew to 6'2 ? from Edward Scissorhands and on I personally put him as soild 6'0 ! ... P.S. ... Robert Downy Jr really did look pretty short in Weird Science !
footballed28 said on 28/Jan/07
I dont know...he never appeared tall to me....I always compare his height with other actors in various movies in the past 10 yrs and he just never seemed 6'2 to me...6' would be a more accurate listing...tho he did look big/tall in Ed Sciss and Johnny be Good (or at least taller than the almost 6' Thurman)
AD said on 17/Jan/07
In that picture with Robert Downey Jr, you can't accurately tell heights. This could be to do with slouching, sloping pavement etc. If you watch ANY film with Anthony Michael Hall made after he was 18, he's very obviously above 6'....trouble is, people always remember him more for his films from his childhood / early adolescence when he was not just smaller in height, but a lot smaller in physique.
AA said on 15/Jan/07
He's the typical "old-new" series leading man. He HAS to be tall. Main characters are always tall, or seems to be. Maybe he's 6', but it's unlikely...
Got to agree with ya, Rob!
AD said on 8/Aug/06
He was definately taller in 'Weird Science' than he was in 'The Breakfast Club' which was made earlier the same year. Near the end of the film he's stood next to Bill Paxton (5'11") and looks taller than him. Then by 1990 in 'Upworld' he looks around the same as 6'2" Jerry Orbach. His radical change in physique also made him seem a lot bigger by the time he was in Edward Scissorhands'. Watch him in 'Dead Zone'...he's definately around 6'1" - 6'2".

I mean to always try to catch some dead zone to compare this guy with deboer but always forget, but from stills he doesn't look quite as tall
Sam said on 26/Jul/06
this kid got taller. I always thought he was small after seeing breakfast club but he surprised me in Edward Scissorhands looking much taller. (6'1?)
Anonymous said on 13/Jul/05
Anthony Michael Hall was just 16 when he made Breakfast Club (quoted as 5ft 9.5) but had a late puberty, and by the time he was in Edward Scissorhands you see him towering over the rest of the cast and bulked up considerably! If you see him in Dead Zone next to others you can well believe him to be as tall as 6ft 2.
Anonymous said on 30/Jun/05
I'm the same extra that made that height list on Vin Diesel's listing, and I just remember I left this guy out. So I'll post his height now.

Anthony Michael Hall- about 6 ft or 6 ft 1. I originally thought this guy was going to be around my height because I expected him to be the same height he was in Breakfast Club. He definately has grown since Breakfast Club, but not quite 6 ft 2.
