Hugh 190cm said on 8/Jun/09
He was noticeably taller than 6ft1 Christopher Lloyd and Crispin Glover.
James said on 8/Jun/09
Maybe Zane looked really tall in Back to the Future because he was standing next to Michael J Fox?
Hugh 190cm said on 7/Jun/09
A weak 6ft1 it is then. but no less.
Lenad said on 6/Jun/09
I'm putting 55 dollars on a weak 6ft1, 30 dollars on a strong 6ft0 and 15 dollars on a strong 6ft1.
Lenad said on 5/Jun/09
Titanic 184-185cm Dead Calm 183-184cm Back to the future 191-192cm and The Phantom 184-185cm
Hugh 190cm said on 5/Jun/09
Pretty much James.
James said on 5/Jun/09
So you think Zane is 185cm Hugh?
Hugh 190cm said on 5/Jun/09
184cm minimum, 186cm max.
Lenad said on 4/Jun/09
No less than 6ft0
James said on 4/Jun/09
No not a movie at the Matrix Reloaded 2003 london premier.
Hugh 190cm said on 2/Jun/09
Which movie?
James said on 2/Jun/09
Hugh but I swear Hugo Weaving had around 2 inches on Zane.
Hugh 190cm said on 2/Jun/09
No less than 6ft0.5.
Hugh 190cm said on 30/May/09
187cm out of bed and 185cm before bed. 186cm during the day.
James said on 25/May/09
186cm out of bed most likely.
Lenad said on 24/May/09
I doubt hes anywere near 6ft3 in reality James. The most he could really be in my opinion is 186cm
James said on 24/May/09
I'll to watch back to the future and see for myself how tall he looks. He was nowhere near 6'3 in Titanic.
Lenad said on 24/May/09
Yeah hes obviously not 6ft3
Hugh 190cm said on 24/May/09
But James he does look 6ft3 for sure in Back to the Future.
Hugh 190cm said on 23/May/09
Close enough to claim 6ft2. 186cm.
James said on 23/May/09
Yeah not 6'3. In my opinion its hard to tell if he's 6'1/2 or 6'1.25? I mean theres not much between those 2 heights.
Hugh 190cm said on 23/May/09
I've been trying to explain that for ages, Lenad but no one would listen. He does look 6ft3 there. But he's obviously not that tall.
Lenad said on 23/May/09
Is it just me or does Zane look a solid 6ft3 in that Back to the future movie he was in? He sure as hell looks taller than just 6ft0 in that movie!
Hugh 190cm said on 22/May/09
If Leo was 5ft11 flat at that time, I estimate Zane to have been a little over 6ft. There was genuinely 1.5 inches between them. If Leo was 5ft11.75 then that would make Zane 6ft1.25 no problem. Personally I don't rule out 186cm for Zane at all.
James said on 22/May/09
Leo. Zane looked about 6ft in Titanic
Hugh 190cm said on 22/May/09
Who Zane or Leo?
James said on 21/May/09
Well I thought he looked no taller than a flat 5'11 in Titanic.
Hugh 190cm said on 20/May/09
Leo was probably close to 6ft back then.
James said on 19/May/09
Many seem to think Leo looked no taller than 5'10 or 5'10.5 in Titanic.
Hugh 190cm said on 19/May/09
Looking at pictures with him and his 5ft8 model girlfriend on the beach he appears to be near 6ft2 if not 6ft2! He's definately taller than 6ft though.
Hugh 190cm said on 18/May/09
Nah he did look close to 6ft even back then. Zane looks to be 6ft1.
James said on 18/May/09
Except theres on little hitch Hugh in 1996/1997 was Leo really 182-183cm or was he more 180-181cm? Because we all know leo was a late developer and i think Zane had hair advantage in Titanic.
Lenad said on 18/May/09
Hugh thinks strong 6ft1 and I think weak 6ft1
yoyo said on 17/May/09
Sam Neill cant be 2inch over nicole kidman. i watch the movie they film. sam looks 3cm over nicole. nicole was at least 5ft11.0(180cm) to me and sam neil 6ft in 1980s nowadays 5ft11.75(182cm). billy zane def topped sam neil..
Hugh 190cm said on 16/May/09
Not really James. He looked every bit of 6ft2 in Head above Water next to Cameron Diaz. Absolutley dwarfed Ben Stiller in Zoolander and did tower over Owen Wilson aswell. Looked massive in Back to the Future like 6ft3/6ft4! He also looks way taller than his 5ft8 girlfriend whose in heels. Really he looks about 6ft2 in person. But maybe that is little too high so 186-187cm seems more appropriate. The only downside is that he looked barely an inch taller than Sam Neill(5ft11.75) and barely 2 inches taller than Nicole Kidman (5ft10.5). In Titanic Next to Leonardo DiCaprio (182-183cm) he looks 1-1.5 inches taller. So in titanic he looked to be 185-186cm. The absolute lowest I could buy for this guy is 184cm. He seemed about 1 inch under me. I'm literally a hair under 6ft3. He was one inch under me. He must be a strong 6ft1 guy. 6ft0.75 is the lowest for me.
James said on 16/May/09
Hard to buy 186cm.
Hugh 190cm said on 16/May/09
Zane is a 186cm guy.
James said on 10/May/09
Zane has quite a muscular build which can make him look taller and bigger.
Anonymous said on 7/May/09
That sounds fair rob but losing more than 1 inch in a day is unrealistic.
Anonymous said on 6/May/09
In my opinion the human body in general only shrinks half an inch during the day. That's from my experience of measuring myself at 6ft3.25 in the morning after a good night's sleep and measuring myself at 6ft2.75 before bed. So Zane could wake up after a good night's sleep at 6ft1.5 and Go to bed at 6ft1 flat. So I'd say Zane is 186cm.

Morning height - 6ft1.5 / 187cm
Afternoon height - 6ft1.25 / 186cm
Evening height - 6ft1 / 185cm

His afternoon height is his official height.

So 186cm should be bang on for Zane. He did look 1.5 inches taller than Leo Dicaprio who in my opinion stands 5ft11.75 as he himself looked to be almost 1 inch taller than 5ft11 Alec Baldwin. DiCaprio might even wake up at 184cm if he's lucky.

Now Lenad's claim of 6ft0.75 for Zane could also be an option. I claim a strong 6ft1 for Zane and Lenad claims a weak 6ft1 for Zane. Overall let's just say that Zane's height is somewhere between 184cm-187cm.

Rob what's your opinion.

[Editor Rob: I think the 0.5 inch is on the lower end of the range. Some people's spines discs might be slightly thicker than others, and the fluid expressed from them may not always be similar.

there will be slight variations.]
Lenad said on 18/Apr/09
I think a weak 6'1 like 184-185cm. He sure as hell isnt a full 6'2 though.
Hugh 190cm said on 17/Apr/09
I doubt Zane is anywhere near 189cm, Lenad. He did however give that impression in some of his early films like Back to the Future where he looks close to a foot taller than Michael J. Fox and about 6-7 inches taller than dennis Hopper in Memory who some say is 5ft9.
Lenad said on 17/Apr/09
I think Zane could be a tad over 6'1 barefoot but thats the max. He sure as hell didnt look a proper 189cm in dead calm more like 184cm.
Hugh 190cm said on 12/Apr/09
I really think theres about an inch between Zane and Cameron,
Hugh 190cm said on 12/Apr/09
So Cameron should be 6ft1.75, Zane should 6ft0.75 and Leo should be given 5ft11.75. That's my opinion.
Hugh 190cm said on 10/Apr/09
Actually I think Cameron is more of a weak 6ft2 and Zane a weak 6ft1.
So Cameron is around 187cm/188cm and 184cm/185cm for Zane.
Lenad said on 8/Apr/09
DejaVu says on 7/Feb/09
This picture rules out the possibility of Zane being 6ft2. Cameron is 6'2 and towers over both Zane and DiCaprio.

James Cameron seems a bit closer to the camera. Cameron doesnt tower over Zane really. There is at most 2 inches between them in reality. But I must admit,6'2 looks a bit much for Billy Boy since he is obviously shorter than James Cameron.
Hugh 190cm said on 8/Apr/09
He looked 6ft1ish in Dead Calm if he stood straighter with Sam Neill. In Titanic he could appear over 6ft1 in some shots. In Head Above Water looked barely over 6ft. In Zoolander Zane could pass for 6ft2. In Back to the Future Zane looked an easy 6ft2 and possibly close to 6ft3. Likewise in Memory. That's my opinion. Personally I think he's a strong 184cm at the lowest.
Hugh 190cm said on 7/Apr/09
Obviously not but he gave the very rare illusion looking that tall in his early films.
Hugh 190cm said on 5/Apr/09
In films like Memory and Back to the Future his height ranged from 186cm-189cm!
Hugh 190cm said on 31/Mar/09
Anything below 6ft is not acceptable.
\\\\-_-_-(Hugh) said on 22/Mar/09
Without a doubt Lenad. Anyone who thinks Zane is less than 6ft can get off the site.
Lenad said on 21/Mar/09
Rob this guy deserves a strong 184cm.
-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 14/Mar/09
Listen, anything less than 6ft, Whether it's 5ft11, 5ft11.5 or 5ft11.75 is ridiculous. The guy is no less than 184cm.
\\-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 13/Mar/09
Alex who said Zane was 5ft11.75?
\-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 13/Mar/09
Alex who said Zane was 5ft11.75?
Alex said on 12/Mar/09
If the guy measured at like 5'11 3/4 there is no way we could tell that from 6'0 in pictures. I still give him a solid 6'0.
Lenad said on 7/Mar/09
I think 6'0-6'1 range is most accurate. 6'0 minimum. Still you are entitled to your opinion Hugh. If you think 6'1-6'2 is most accurate then I'm not going to stop you.
\\_-_-_-Hugh-_-_-_/ said on 7/Mar/09
Not really Lenad. He did look about 4 inches taller than Owen Wilson in Zoolander. 6ft1 to 6ft2 range is probably the most accurate.
Lenad said on 6/Mar/09
6ft2 looks a bit silly. I think theres a possibility he could measure at a tad over 6ft1. But thats the max. Anything under 6'0 is BS.
_-_-_-Hugh-_-_-_/ said on 4/Mar/09
6ft2 isn't silly. 6ft3 is to high despite the fact that he looked near that height in Back to the Future. 6ft4 is ridiculous.
Lenad said on 3/Mar/09
I think 6ft2 is silly for Zane and 6ft3 is a joke and 6ft4 is freaking insane.
\\_-_-_-Hugh-_-_-_/ said on 2/Mar/09
184cm strong minimum and 186cm strong max.
Lenad said on 2/Mar/09
Looks a solid 6ft0. Strong 183cm minimum and strong 186cm maximum so 184 seems bang on.
\_-_-_-Hugh-_-_-_/ said on 27/Feb/09
Okay Rob. how do you know it was me?

[Editor Rob: It is obvious.]
U Turn said on 26/Feb/09
Hugh is bang on with his estimates for Zane. 6'1-6'2 is closer to the truth. If he's only 6'0 or a little over than Leanardo DiCaprio is definitely under 5'11 lol.

[Editor Rob: I let it slide last week when you used this name, but not this time.

stick to using Hugh.]
-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 24/Feb/09
He somewhere between 6ft and 6ft2. But closer to 6ft2. 186cm.
-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 13/Feb/09
6ft1-6ft2 is what I see.
\-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 13/Feb/09
Strangely he does look 6ft2-6ft3 in Back to the Future. I can see a bit less than a foot between him and Michael J. Fox.
Hugh said on 10/Feb/09
True. Let's rule out anything under 6ft because it's just unrealistic. I think he could be a strong 6ft1 in the mroning and goes to bed at 6ft0.75 or 6ft0.5 at the lowest.
elizabeth said on 9/Feb/09
billy looks like he could be 6ft1. to me but i don't know what you think?
Alex said on 9/Feb/09
I'd be suprised if Zane was under 6'0.
Hugh said on 9/Feb/09
5ft11.5! Are you kidding me. I think he could be a little over 6ft1.
DejaVu said on 9/Feb/09
He could be 6'1 but never 6'2.
Alex said on 9/Feb/09
James, he isn't 6'2. At least I dont think so because that then makes Leo 6'0.5-6'1 which he can't be. Also Zane is listed most places at 6'0, I've seen 1-2 sites listing him at 6'2. I wish they did show him and Julian McMahon in the same shot. I'd bet Julian would have had between 1 and 2 inches on him.
U turn said on 8/Feb/09
Dicaprio looks taller than Zane! Scary. But that's just one picture. Regardless of that Zane still is easily 1.5-2 inches taller than Leo. I'd say Cameron is 6ft2 though.
Alex said on 8/Feb/09
James, on one Charmed episode it had both Julian McMahon and Billy Zane on it but they had a scene together talking in the hall but you couldn't get any height comparison at all because they never showed they close to compare. They didn't even show them from a longer distance, just kept on going back and forth to them with the camera. That would have been a good comparison because Julian is likely a legit 6'2, if not at least 6'1 1/2.
Hugh said on 8/Feb/09
Not really, James.
Hugh said on 7/Feb/09
Looks a solid 6ft1 and could pass for 6ft2.
DejaVu said on 7/Feb/09
this picture rules out the possibility of Zane being 6ft 2. James Cameron is 6'2 and towers over both Zane and Dicaprio.

Lenad said on 6/Feb/09
Looks a solid 6'0. He could pass for 6'1. Not 6'2 though.
Hugh said on 6/Feb/09
I don't see this guy shorter than 184cm.
Hugh said on 3/Feb/09
With good posture I'd say Zane could be 6ft1 or even a hair more.
Hugh said on 2/Feb/09
I think he's a bit over 6ft. 184-185cm.
Hugh said on 1/Feb/09
6ft2ish possibly in the morning.
Alex said on 27/Jan/09
James, I think he's a bit over 6'0. I wouldn't go over 6'0 1/2 for him.
Hugh said on 27/Jan/09
No James. He eyeline was noticeably above Leo's.
Hugh said on 26/Jan/09
He'd be a good bit taller than Leo. I'd put him in the same catagory as Kevin Costner, Bill Murray, Colin Firth and Pierce Brosnan. 6ft1-2 range.
Lenad said on 26/Jan/09
Zane is a minimum of 6'0.
Hugh said on 25/Jan/09
186cm or 187cm isn't impossible though.
Hugh said on 24/Jan/09
Fine, maybe not quite 6ft2 despite my encounter with him.
Hugh said on 24/Jan/09
I think he could be 185-186cm.
Hugh said on 23/Jan/09
Zane has been out of the spotlight for quite a while.
Hugh said on 23/Jan/09
Zane is 184cm minimum in my opinion. I see Dicaprio at 182cm strong and Zane at best 186cm. I'd say Zane is scraping 6ft1.
Hugh said on 21/Jan/09
I was simply in thea area James. Me and my sis met her. My sis is 5ft10 and she had two inches on her. What I can say is that she looked even more attractive in 'The Holiday' than in 'There's something about Mary'.
glenn said on 21/Jan/09
i wasnt trying to be a dick,but to say i was dead wrong was premature.diaz is known the world round as one of the worse.made autograph collector magazines' top 10 worse signers list year after year.not saying she doesnt have a good side.your very lucky.alot of my friends met her during the mask.super friendly then.
Hugh said on 20/Jan/09
Met her again not so long ago in 2006 on the set of 'The Holiday' and she was equally as sweet. That does make sense though Glenn. I'd say Timberlake is cursed lol. But I hear he's very rude at times. James, Kutcher doesn't seem to have changed at all. But I do think it's weird that he's married to someone more than 10 years older than himself. I'm also suprised by Bruce Willis's response to the whole thing. He and Kutcher seem to be great pals.
glenn said on 20/Jan/09
im not dead wrong hugh.my point being your one encounter isnt enough to make statements like that.reread my post.i said she was bad mainly in the 2000s.late 90s was the start of bad.2 years ago she became alot nicer.mid 90s super sweet.thats the problem with people that only meet a celeb once.harder to judge height and you only know one side of them.in new york city,celebs are usually at their nastiest.long before the madness of photogs,autograph dealers by the dozens,and tmz.they always act weird here.justin timberlake has habit of making them nast.jessica beil was sweet.not anymore.
Hugh said on 19/Jan/09
Glenn, no offense but you are dead wrong. Cameron is probably the sweetest individual I've ever met. She was so nice in 1998.
Hugh said on 19/Jan/09
I'd say I was a bit taller than Zane. Maybe close to an inch. He might have something suspicoius in his shoes. Colud be worng. But I know for a fact that I'm almost 6ft3.
glenn said on 19/Jan/09
diaz was very nasty for almost a decade.great at the start of her career.got nicer again 2 years ago.strangely never saw her and my friend knows her.
Hugh said on 19/Jan/09
James, Cameron Diaz was by a long shot the nicest.
glenn said on 18/Jan/09
it couldve been anything.again,not to sound anal or a dick,it cant be a restaurant either.dumps.he was probably walking around or came out of a play.and decided to stop for a smoke.
Hugh said on 18/Jan/09
Glenn again, it could've been a restaurant. And yes it was pure chance.
Hugh said on 18/Jan/09
Glenn again, it could've been a restaurant.
glenn said on 18/Jan/09
i never said that hugh.i never,ever saw an actor in times square.unless they came out a play.ive seen musicians or rappers.you saw him by chance.
Hugh said on 17/Jan/09
Hold on Glenn. Just because I met Zane outside a hotel does not mean he was neccesarily staying there.
Hugh said on 17/Jan/09
Okay, James,

Cameron Diaz 4 times
Sean Connery
Julian Glover
Reese Witherspoon
John C. Reilly
Neil Flynn
Pierce Brosnan
Matt Damon
Kim Basinger
Sharon Stone
Russel Crowe
Colin Hanks
Bono
Patrick Duffy
Uma Thurman
Lenad said on 17/Jan/09
Excuses, excuses Hugh! They never end!
glenn said on 16/Jan/09
hugh-celebs dont stay there.nothing to do with dirty.those are 3 star hotels.they stay at 5 stars.those are for tourists in times square.they dont want to stay there.occasional washed up music names stay there.a-list sports names stay at another.the majority are for tourists.as for photos with celebs,depends on the situation.can be easy or hard.some prefer that over signing,and some detest photos.some that hated photos reversed to photos so they wont see people making money off their autograph.
Hugh said on 16/Jan/09
Obviously I introduced myself first. I'm still having some problems with my computer. I have not many pictures. A lot of celebs turn down photographs. Glenn would know. Right Glenn?
Lenad said on 16/Jan/09
Never looks under 6'0. A little more if anything.
Hugh said on 16/Jan/09
Just said hi to him breifly. He didn't have time to talk. I shook his hand aswell. My memory's a it blurred. It was in 1999. It was either a restaurant or a hotel. But glenn, I doubt the hotels in Times Square are dirty.
glenn said on 15/Jan/09
he definitely wouldnt be staying at a hotel in times square.those are all dumps.chance freak encounter.
Hugh said on 13/Jan/09
Simply on the street. He's very distinctive. Outside some fancy hotel.
Hugh said on 12/Jan/09
I think he could be close to 6ft2. Zane certainly looked it to me in Times Square.
Hugh said on 11/Jan/09
As in he got fat?
Hugh said on 10/Jan/09
I'd say 6ft1 is the lowest. 6ft2 is a possibilty. I think it's fair that he's somewhere in between. Well I saw 6ft2. Wasn't noticing the footwear though. From what I've seen on TV and in pictures he looks pretty tall. So it wouldn't if he was near 6ft2.
glenn said on 9/Jan/09
as close as you can get.i wouldnt say accurate.zane c
ould be 6-2 and leo 6ft.i saw a picture of him in slippers taken recently and he looked giant compared to others.but i dont know the other peoples height.seemed tallest.
Hugh said on 9/Jan/09
Thanks James.
Hugh said on 8/Jan/09
5ft11.75 for Leo.
6ft1 for Zane. Or possibly 186cm.
Hugh said on 7/Jan/09
Well he likely wears lifts when people see him at 6ft2.
Hugh said on 6/Jan/09
Lifts no doubt.
Hugh said on 6/Jan/09
Leo is an obvious liftwearer.
Hugh said on 6/Jan/09
190cm.
Hugh said on 6/Jan/09
Well I'm literally a shade under 6ft3 and I've never really said I'm 6ft3. I normally say 6ft2.75 or 'almost 6ft3'. I never actually say 6ft3.
glenn said on 6/Jan/09
i asked leo his height cause for a good year he was looking 6-2 at events.i was shocked he grew so much since i last saw him before titanic.he was 5-11 flat then.on the set of the new movie thats out now,he told me "around 6ft",and then i said it was strange that he always looked 6-2 to me at events.he then said "its all in the period shoes".i guess he misunderstood me.im meant events,and not sets.i guess he was admitting to lifts.he seemed 5-11.5 when i asked.bodyguards,event security,drivers and peers of mine all agreed on 6-2 for leo.true story.
Hugh said on 5/Jan/09
Glenn did Leo look 6ft to you?
glenn said on 5/Jan/09
i agree leo could be 6ft.he told me he was around 6ft.
Hugh said on 4/Jan/09
6ft1 then. But I think Leo could be 6ft.
Hugh said on 2/Jan/09
Thank you AG. Now if Leo is 5ft11.5 then that makes Zane 6ft1.5. I saw about 2 inches there. I cannot argue with that.
AG said on 31/Dec/08
I remember in Titanic he towered over Leo by 2 inches, who is listed here as 5'11.5. And Zane never looked under 6'0. 5'11 for Zane is ridiculous.
Hugh said on 24/Dec/08
5ft11, lol.
glenn said on 23/Dec/08
i dont think i ever saw a film with zane in it.i never saw titanic.never wanted to.saw bits of it when im at someones house and its on tv.
Anonymous said on 23/Dec/08
in this pics looks 5'11", no more.
glenn said on 21/Dec/08
hopper can look 5-7 or 5-8.hugh has spoken up.
Hugh said on 21/Dec/08
Yeah he looked every bit of 6ft2 to me. I think we should give him a strong 184cm at least. He didn't look to be wearing any suspicious footwear.
glenn said on 21/Dec/08
which one? and how did you compare?
glenn said on 19/Dec/08
ill buy 6-1.but not a hair under.keep in mind hugh saw him too and i believe hugh also said 6-2.
Alex said on 18/Dec/08
I know Glenn said he saw Zane possibly at 6'2 which I am not going to say is wrong because I didn't see the man in person but I dont buy Leo over 5'11 1/2 max and Billy Zane was an inch, maybe 1.5 inches taller than Leo.
Alex said on 17/Dec/08
I could actually see Zane at maybe 6'1 but I think 6'0 1/2 may be dead on. Minimum 6'0 though.
Hugh said on 15/Dec/08
Maybe not over 6ft4 but in the same height range as my father. Like 6ft3.5 would be my ideal height. At 190cm I'm satisfied. I've been mistaken for 6ft4 a couple of times. I'm sure that's flaterring enough. I'd be taller than most people at say a nightlub.
Lenad said on 14/Dec/08
Hugh I am 176cm which is 5'9 1/4 I think. Also what is the shame of being 6ft2.75? Thats a good 190cm.
Hugh said on 13/Dec/08
Lenad, I'd hate to be 5ft11-6ft1. At 6ft2.75 I'm sometimes not happy. My father was 6ft4 at his peak. He's now 6ft3.25. And my brotther is 6ft3.5. Me and my bro are kind of pissed off that we didn't grow taller than are old man. For some people, no height is perfect. Lenad, how tall are you?
Hugh said on 13/Dec/08
Sure. but he can look 6ft2.
Lenad said on 12/Dec/08
I never see 6ft2 for Zane. 6ft0.5 looks closest to the truth. No shame in being 6'0 1/2. Its on the tall side.
Hugh said on 12/Dec/08
less than 6ft is ridiculous.
Hugh said on 12/Dec/08
I'd say he's possibly 186cm. I'd say it's better to give him 6ft0.5 or 6ft0.75. The weak 184cm seems a little low.
Lenad said on 12/Dec/08
I think Zane is a solid 183cm if not a bit more. I was watching Titanic and he is taller than most other men. He is defintly not below the 6feet mark.
Hugh said on 10/Dec/08
It's still very unexplainable how he looked 6ft2-3 in Back to the Future.
Lenad said on 10/Dec/08
No less than 6ft0. 6ft0.5 is probably closest to the truth. He always looks on the tall side.
Hugh said on 9/Dec/08
I think Zane is a solid 6ft1 minimum. Possibly more. In the 90's he always looked 6ft2 in movies.
Brett said on 5/Dec/08
Hey Rob,

I just saw Billy Zane in the Luxe Hotel ( Rodeo Drive) , im actually here with Al and some other mates. I was in flat pumas, and he was in boat type shoes , so he may have had a slight heel advantage, but he was atleast as tall as me... which I found quite suprising.
Ill try get a picture with him as I will be here till monday... but hes probably 6'1 or more.
Hugh said on 26/Nov/08
Watch Head Above Water. He's about 6 inches taller than 5ft8 Cameron Diaz.
glenn said on 26/Nov/08
james-i agree about that with titanic.but i was seeing 6-2 leo sightings.and thought it made sense.until i realised it was lifts.that an amazing photo i have to check out you mentioned.
Hugh said on 25/Nov/08
In Head Above Water he looks tall. Also in Zoolander when he made a cameo appearence as himself he towered over Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller.
Viper said on 25/Nov/08
Thats the only movie where he looks that tsll I think.
Hugh said on 24/Nov/08
Well, He looked 6ft2+ in Back to the Future.
glenn said on 23/Nov/08
plus hugh saw him at that height too.2 eyewitness accounts.
Hugh said on 23/Nov/08
Zane is slouching aswell. He could easily look 6ft2 if he stood up straight which he rarely does.
glenn said on 22/Nov/08
not in the picture.i dont know this lady,her footwear or the ground.
glenn said on 20/Nov/08
6-2.
Hugh said on 20/Nov/08
Saw Back to the Future last night and he looked 6ft2-3!
Hugh said on 14/Nov/08
Anyway, beginning to think Zane is actually 6ft2.
Hugh said on 12/Nov/08
I hear he's a really nice guy James. Was he?
Alex said on 12/Nov/08
I gotta see him in Back the to future part 2, never realized he was in that all the times I've watched it.
Hugh said on 11/Nov/08
A bit of everything. The last celebrity I saw was Forest Whitaker. And that was god, 3 months ago!. I have gone to a fair few premieres in London and a couple in L.A.
Viper said on 11/Nov/08
He does look 6-2-6-3 in Back to the future part 2. But, that does not mean hes really that.
Hugh said on 10/Nov/08
No James. I travel back and forth on a regular basis.
Hugh said on 10/Nov/08
He was pleasant to me.
Hugh said on 8/Nov/08
Now James I have to disagree with you there. Zane always comes across as being pleasant enough. In movies it's different.
glenn said on 8/Nov/08
things can change in a blink of an eye.no,i havnt seen him site,but i heard he was nice.i couldnt get his attention quick enough.i think i mightve been posing with someone when he walked past.that happens all the time.
Hugh said on 8/Nov/08
James, Glenn never met Zane. He walked past him.
glenn said on 8/Nov/08
thanks for understanding alex and i do remember you being supportive of my estimates.anyone as has a right to disagree with a few of mine.or all of mine.but i know im right most of the time cause im there.zane is a mystery to me then.i could be wrong and he wears lifts.
Alex said on 7/Nov/08
Glenn, no offense taken. I dont think your wrong with some of your estimates. Actually I agree with plenty of your estimates and backed you up on some of them. Just some I didn't agree on but seeing them in the flesh is more better than in pictures.

Zane has been listed at 6'2 on a few sites. I personally dont think he's that tall but I could lean toward him being 6'1 though def.
Hugh said on 7/Nov/08
Glenn is right. Seeing these people in the flesh, up close is where the best judgement comes in.
glenn said on 7/Nov/08
alex is also a guy who said my estimates were too high when i was banned from the site.not the right time to state an opinion like that.felt he was a very small part of kick glenn when he is down crew,even though i know he meant no harm.not keen on tact then.like others alex has to understand listings dont always mean anything.real encounters usually do.not always.pics decieve.i dont.no offense alex.i like you.had to get that off my chest.
Hugh said on 7/Nov/08
Alex, Zane has been listed as 6ft2 actually.
Alex said on 6/Nov/08
Unlike Walker, I believe Zane has only been listed at 6'0. While Walker has been listed at as low as 5'9, and as high as 6'4. I doubt Zane would be over 6'0 1/2 if listed at 6'0. He sure doesn't look more than 6'0 1/4 with the 5'2 lady unless shes in heels.
glenn said on 6/Nov/08
then james,he is 6-2.tall people wear lifts too.not as common of course.but its out there.believe me.
glenn said on 5/Nov/08
im with hugh on zane.
Alex said on 5/Nov/08
Well he looked an inch taller than 5'11-5'11 1/2 Leonardo Decaprio though.
glenn said on 5/Nov/08
cant be the frame alone.he must be wearing lifts if im wrong.
Hugh said on 4/Nov/08
Walker 6ft2 minimum
Zane 6ft1.5
Alex said on 4/Nov/08
I think Walker is a bit taller than Zane.
Walker- 6'1
Zane-6'0-6'0 1/2
Viper said on 4/Nov/08
Both Paul Walker and Billy Zane are 6-0 guys that can pull off looking 6-2 because of their frames.
glenn said on 4/Nov/08
how do explain him looking 6-2 to me and my friends who actually meet this guy?
Alex said on 3/Nov/08
James, no way do I think he could be 6'2. I wouldn't go over 6'0 1/2 for him.
Alex said on 2/Nov/08
Zane could likely be 6'0 1/2. He looks a bit more than a flat 6'0 but its not easy to tell.
Hugh said on 1/Nov/08
But Billy Zane is not rake thin.
Alex said on 1/Nov/08
I am not thin either. I am built pretty well. Sometimes being built can make you appear taller too.
Hugh said on 1/Nov/08
No Viper, Paul Walker is genuinely 6ft2. Despite his slim frame.
Viper said on 31/Oct/08
Just like Paul Walker as well.
Alex said on 29/Oct/08
James, I am 6'0-6'0 1/2 and I can look 6'2 in photos.
glenn said on 24/Oct/08
looked 6-2 to me.
Lmeister said on 20/Oct/08
He is well built. Nowadays carries few extra pounds though. I think he should start shaving his head again. BTW the angle and the jacket makes him look "skinny" in this pic.
Hugh said on 20/Oct/08
He looked pretty buff in Cleopatra.
Hugh said on 17/Oct/08
Billy is far from thin. He's quite broad actually. Well built.
Viper said on 16/Oct/08
Hes 6-0
Hugh said on 16/Oct/08
I don't think he's as low as 6ft flat though. He's definately over 6ft.
Alex said on 16/Oct/08
James, yea. Its the same with me too. I can look 6'2 to some people but really in the 6'0 range. He looks 6'0 with the 5'2 lady above though.
Alex said on 11/Oct/08
I think its likely he could be pushing 6'1 but no way does he look 6'2.
Hugh said on 11/Oct/08
He looked 6ft2 in Head above Water, Demon Knight and Back to The Future. Also in Zoolander.
RICHARD said on 7/Oct/08
He has the build of a 6'2 guy. I really think he should be upgraded to 6'1.5,as he looks it.

He always comes across in movies looking tall and having good posture next to actors under 5'9. I think the movie he has appeared the tallest was in Demon Knight,he pratically towered 5'8 or 5'9 William Sadler.
Hugh said on 4/Oct/08
Thank you James. I know guys like Lenad and Viper wouldn't agree.
Hugh said on 3/Oct/08
Sorry James I meant. 6ft1 evening, 6ft1.25 afternoon and 6ft1.5 morning.
Hugh said on 2/Oct/08
Maybe 6ft1 flat and 186cm in the morning. With good posture I'd say 6ft1.5ish.
Hugh said on 1/Oct/08
6ft1-6ft2.
Hugh said on 30/Sep/08
Hmmm. About 9-10inches between Zane and Fox.
Hugh said on 29/Sep/08
I meant near enough. I'm not very good at maths. How many inches is a foot? lol 6ft4. Zane's a tall guy but not that tall.
Viper said on 25/Sep/08
I didnt even realize he was in Back to the Future.
Hugh said on 25/Sep/08
In back to the Future he had almost a foot on Michael J. Fox.
Hugh said on 22/Sep/08
No but in Head above Water, Back to the Future, Titanic and Critters.
Hugh said on 21/Sep/08
That's possible too.
Hugh said on 20/Sep/08
Or Ozwald Boetang is a lift wearer.
Hugh said on 16/Sep/08
Viper says on 14/sep/08

You think everyone is taller on here Hugh

Viper, how many times have you said that lol.
Really, you're like a cracked record at this stage.
Hugh said on 15/Sep/08
He might be near it. BTW Viper what the hell is a parady poser, huh?
Viper said on 14/Sep/08
You think everyone is taller on here Hugh
Hugh said on 13/Sep/08
When I met him he came in at 6ft2.
Viper said on 13/Sep/08
Rob has him right. Hes 6-0
Hugh said on 12/Sep/08
His shoulders are pretty wide. I think the lowest I can buy is 6ft0.5 and the highest is 6ft1.5. He has looked up to 6ft3 in some pictures though.
RICHARD said on 11/Sep/08
I agree,James. 5'11 is very low for him. He's definetly a tall guy with a slim,muscular build so 6'0-'6'1 is more in his range than 5'10-11 is.
Hugh said on 11/Sep/08
Aswell that's only one pic. In others he looks way taller. I think he's claimed 6ft2 as his height.
Hugh said on 9/Sep/08
Yes James. 'that picture'. the one with Ozwald Boetang.
Alex said on 8/Sep/08
Zane had an inch on Leo. Leo is 5'11-5'11 1/2. Zane is at least 6'0 and maybe 6'0 1/2. I doubt very much he would be 6'1 and listed at 6'0. He could be 6'0 1/4-6'0 1/2 and and rounded down perhaps but not a full inch.
Hugh said on 8/Sep/08
With horrible posture Zane can look shorter. In that picture he looks 4 inches shorter lol.
Hugh said on 4/Sep/08
I think Zane is 6ft1 at least.
RICHARD said on 30/Aug/08
Had a good 1/2 in over 5'11 Sam Neill in Dead Calm.
He was also 1/2 in taller than 5'11 Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic so 6'0-1'' seems good enough for Zane. Funny thing is last night I was watching Critters and he was in it and had HAIR !!!!!!!!
Hugh said on 29/Aug/08
He not 6ft3 but I've seen a few illusions, like you know 6ft2.5 etc. I think 186-187cm is fair.
Hugh said on 26/Aug/08
He is 6ft2.
Scott b said on 22/Aug/08
A guy I used to work with met Zane a few times and said he was 6'1.
Ed T. said on 13/Jul/08
In the film Sniper (1993), Zane looks to be one inch ( maybe slightly more than one inch) taller than the 5'11" Tom Berenger. I believe that the 6'0.25" listing on this page is accurate. I have never met him , however from his film work , I find it hard to believe he would be more than 6'0.5". Probably 6'1" max.
Hugh said on 4/Jul/08
Billy looked at least 6ft2 when i met him in new york.
Anonymous said on 1/Jul/08
Agree with you talker I though this guy was like 6'2", but in that pic he looks much lesser.
talker said on 29/Jun/08
no,i havent met him glenn,but it seems strange to me how you could possibly agree that Gary Oldman is 5'8'5"(you do on his page) and say that zane is 6'2".

look at these photos,Zane looks hardly taller than Oldman.

glenn said on 22/Jun/08
oh,i forgot you met him talker.
Hugh said on 20/Jun/08
Correct Glenn. To be fair the least he could be is 186cm.
glenn said on 20/Jun/08
zane is 6-2.
Alex said on 18/Jun/08
6'0, 6'0 1/2 tops he is. If she's 5'2 then I'd go with at least 6'0 since his head does look around 10 inches. I am 6'0-6'0 1/4 and my head is 9.5 inches so a girl just under 5'3 comes up to the bottom of my chin.
Hugh said on 20/Apr/08
Sorry, there's something wrong with my computer at the moment. It's unable to download the pictures. I'll have to get it fixed.
Hugh said on 18/Apr/08
I've a few.
kevin said on 17/Apr/08
He is shorter than Timoty Dalton in the film Cleopatra (1999) i haven seen that movie just yestarday, Billy Zane was 2 inches shorter.. and actually is an inch taller than Rupert Graves.. :)

[Editor Rob: and you could see the footwear the folk wore aswell...]
Hugh said on 16/Apr/08
Actually James your right. But I think Zane could be 186-187cm. Maybe an upgrade to 186cm.
glenn said on 16/Apr/08
hugh is right.he can look 6-2.hugh also saw celebrities.nothing against you james.your one of my mates here.im fighting with everyone on the site this week.hopefully not you.lol.
Hugh said on 11/Apr/08
I think he is.
BERTA said on 6/Apr/08
i think he is 185 -186 lock at the movie "silence of the hams" , he loock tall in it.
derek d said on 5/Apr/08
He always seemed at least 6'1 to me. Anyway, why didn't he play agent 47 in the Hitman movie? With no hair, he looked like the perfect match. Oh well.
dmeyer said on 20/Mar/08
i had 1.4 in heels so i looked close to 6 ft he was a hair taller so i think he is a bit over 6ft1 with shoes on so 6'0.25 to 6'0.5
glenn said on 20/Mar/08
hugh isnt fighting a losing battle cause i saw zane at 6-2.i met him and most,if not all of you never saw the guy.cause rob has him up at the above height makes it right? leo is close to 6ft,if not that.accurate judgements cannot be made unless one sees the subject.repeatedly would help.this is the one the most erroneous heights on the site.along with bruce willis.
Hugh said on 20/Mar/08
Fine James you win. But You can't think this is accurate.

Ptrick says on 26/Dec/07

So, he is 5'11 to 6'0 max.
