I've just had another look at the picture that caused me to think Beau and younger brother Jeff looked so alike. The picture IS of Jeff and not Beau; both of them star in 'The Fabulous Baker Boys'. It's on the Paramount Network channel tomorrow night at 11.45pm. What a grand opportunity to compare the heights of the two siblings!

You can't really see much of a likeness between Beau and Jeff from the above picture, and there is some two inches height difference between the brothers, but today I was looking through next week's telly guide and I saw a picture of Michelle Pfeiffer with, who I thought was Jeff Bridges. I thought, "I didn't think that Jeff was in the movie 'The Fabulous Baker Boys', and he isn't very much taller than Michelle so she probably has very high shoes on!" (You could only see their top halves.)
Then when I read the write-up, I realised that the brother was, in fact, Beau, and he could easily have been mistaken for Jeff, from a facial point of view.
So off I popped to Celebheights, where I discovered that Beau is almost two inches shorter than Jeff; well, I didn't know that before! 🤔
Beau gets 5ft10 and five eighths from me tonight. 🌌😁

It's incredible that he stated his height to the nearest eighth of an inch!

Lol, that's really specific. If I measured 5'10'' and five-eighths I would just simply claim 5'10'' and a half.
Beau doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would BS to such a specific figure, unless he was 5ft 9 5/8ths and pulled the double bluff. I doubt it though, he did seem at least in his peak years of 20's to 40's a solid 5ft 10.

SHORTER than Amanda Tapping in Stargate? No way. He looked close to Michael Shanks' height. Definitely 5'10" even at that age and weight.
There were a few occasions Amanda was a bit taller, but it was when she was in a dress and heels.

Rob, you think the 5/8 he gives is possible?
Ah, yes, Beau deserves it!
Scott said on 2/Dec/16
I believe it. He is nothing less than the listed height.

beau is 5'10.25 peak and 5'10 now unlike jeff bridges who claim up 6'2 at peak but never looks it. Modesty claimed for beau bridges

I'm going to say more around 5'8.5"-5'9" (not sure about his peak). He looked a few inches shorter than his dad Lloyd in a TV movie they did together in the early '90s, and I will bet you that Lloyd had dipped down to 5'10"-5'11" by then. Beau has held up well over the years, yes; not only looks many years younger than he is but also looks younger than brother Jeff who is like 8 years his junior! (the facial hair maybe??)

Rob i met him he was 63 hr was Still solid 5'10 if not 10.25
cole said on 2/Sep/14
@Editor Rob: Yeah if he's been just a 5'10 guy in his prime he looks like he held up pretty good, but then he could have been a 5'10.25-10.5 kind of guy in his prime, and now can dip to 5'9.75 or so.

@Editor Rob: The man is 72 years old, surely he's dropped a little since the 70-90's?
[Editor Rob: he could be a cm less now, surprisingly he looks like he's not lost that much really, just having a glance just now.]
Stark said on 23/May/13
I don't know if he is really 5'10" tall. I heard someone say that he was shorter. It's hard to say. Some of the actors he has played with, like Tony Musante, who's 5'9", look taller on camera.

Beau is right at 5'10. Jeff is 6ft.
Hansen said on 24/Aug/11
5ft10 sounds weir. 6ft1 jeff bridges often came 1-2inch on beau bridges. maybe beau was 5ft11.25 ?
said on 14/Jun/11
Peak yes ???
[Editor Rob: maybe peak, I watched him on stargate and think 178cm seemed reasonable for him.]
said on 13/Jun/11
Looked near 179 in person but 178 is possible Rob is 179 likely
[Editor Rob: not as sure he'd be 179cm recently anyway.]

in a scene in stargate tony amendola was clearly looking down at him

Met him a while back -- he seemed about 5'10" in shoes, so prob 5'9" barefoot. Jeff's probably about 4 inches taller -- I didn't meet him though.

I am fascinated with height, especially americans who were traditionally among the tallest people in the world. I am around 174 cm tall, and being a short guy I feel surprised that so many people in america are 178 cms tall, wish is just a little taller than me. May be measure is wrong

i just watched the fabulous baker boys ..which stars beau and jeff bridges and jeff who is listed as 6'1 towered over beau. I think he's 5'9 - 5'8. Or jeff bridges is taller?
frem said on 9/Apr/07
I know this is a site about height, but does anybody know how much Beau weighs in lbs?
Frank2 said on 29/Apr/06
He was 5'10". I know since I worked with him. Perhaps he shrank by an inch.
Tj said on 28/Apr/06
His brother, in May 1 2006 says he is 5'9".
Frank2 said on 4/Mar/06
Worked with him on Swashbuckler. He's 5-10.
Frank2 said on 2/Mar/06
That's absolutely correct. His brother Beau is 6'2". Their dad was an even six feet.
vaj said on 13/Jan/06
I met him and I am 5'10" he is same height.
guitargod said on 3/Jan/06
If Beau Bridges is 5 10.5, how is it that he always appears shorter than Amanda Tapping in every scene in Stargate SG-1? Isn't she supposed to be around 5-8, or 9? Check it out when you get the chance.
