Rob, maybe he's gone from weak 6ft1 peak to strong 6ft range today?
Progking185 said on 19/May/23
Yeah 6'0.5, looks fairly tall, not quite 6'1 though. Over it for sure with boots
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Mar/23
berta, I buy that barefoot 6ft1½ measurement for Arnold, in fact I heard another time he got 6ft1¾. It's more a question of what point in the day those were taken. I'd be hesitant to give Arnold a flat 6ft1 peak. Full 6ft2 is out the window as well but generally in the 80's he looked between those figures. Edged by solid 6ft2 men and comfortably taller than 5ft11-6ft guys
berta said on 25/Feb/23
i know that i always say Harrison Ford is shorter than the listed height but i really think he was at most 6 foot 1/2 inch and think 6 foot 3/8 was his real height. This guy could look closer to 6 foot 5/8-3/4 and at worst the listed height. I forgot that arnold was measured by another bodybuilder at 6´1 1/2 and i dont think the guy was lying and that means arnold really was close to that height. Maybe 186 on a bad day, but most guys would agree he could look 6´1 flat alot. But arnold is like jason statham, they measure taller than they look. Arnold today can look 5´10 alot but if you measure him he probably still is 180 on a good day and 179,5 on a average day.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Feb/23
I still think people are trying to drag down Ford's peak to undermine his stardom like with Arnold. Make them seem average....they're definitely shorter than I expected growing up watching them on the screen though!

Dunno about this guy edging Harrison...could be coin toss to be honest. Both were at least this height though
berta said on 4/Jan/23
184-185. On a good day he probably was 185 but never the full 6´1 on average. 184,5 is my guess. Him and ford back to back in the 80s- this guy would win.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Dec/22
6ft1 in boots equates to 5ft11 barefoot!

Utterly ridiculous. Arguably 6ft1 in Evil Dead days
Darksol64 said on 26/Sep/22
Yeah, more like 6'2 with boots, or even 6'2.5 with really thick padded work boots.

Looks a touch over flat 6' guys next to Rob so I'll agree with a 6ft and 1/2 listing.
ChristianAnthonyPerkins said on 6/Jun/22
How is he insecure? He even claimed to be 6'1" with boots at one point, which is a bit of a downplay.
6'4" Leprechaun said on 5/Jun/22
6' is tall, so he's insecure.
Sinclair said on 3/Jun/22
Rob, could you please add a page for Burton Gilliam? How tall does he look at 14:30 with Campbell? 5’11”?

Editor Rob
In the scene it did seem he was maybe 5ft 11
Sinclair said on 15/May/22
No problem with his 6’1” claim.
Eggman said on 8/May/22
Do the celebs ever remember you when you meet them again?
Editor Rob
I'm sure a few might have, but think of how many fans a celebrity will meet at 1 single event...
Andrea said on 24/Jan/22
"6'1" with boots on" should imply barely 6' barefoot, which I doubt he is, but 6'0.25 is probably a fairer listing for him... A quite similar claim to Cena's, who I also doubt is over that mark!
Rajkumar76 said on 29/Dec/21
Not less than 6 feet barefoot even to this day 6 & a half at peak.Overall appears a very easy comfortable 6 footer to me. Yes & a great actor too. Groovy 👍
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Aug/21
Rob, between Bruce Campbell and Karl Urban who struck you as taller?
Editor Rob
Both taller than the photographer (same guy), Urban slightly less sneaker though. It is quite close really in person.
Chris Junior Hernandez said on 16/Jun/21
In Hercules Bruce can make Kevin Sorbo look like 6'2.5".
Leesheff1985 said on 12/Jun/21
6 foot barefoot and 6ft 1 in boots like he says
Richie said on 8/Jun/21
Looking at those pics, i would peg Bruce Campbell as a strong 6', he has at least four inches on Rob.
MaskDeMasque said on 10/Apr/21

He was never as tall as 6'1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Mar/21
I suppose you can't discount 6ft1 peak....haven't seen Evil Dead in years
Cbrady said on 23/Mar/21
In the 2008 photo Would Bruce's eye level standing tall barefoot be around 5-8 exactly?
Editor Rob
I'd say just about that mark
MaskDeMasque said on 4/Feb/21
Looks a solid 6 foot in evil dead. 6'0.5. He has my dream height, I think it's perfect.
Tall Sam said on 23/Nov/20
Yes to the Harrison Ford Ford in his Indiana Jones heyday and Campbell in his Ash heyday both during the 80s, these guys would be hard to sort out I would think, both tallish without being especially so.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Nov/20
This guy and Ford peak I reckon would be similar
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Oct/20
That film 'Intruder' was utter rubbish! I watched it last night and Bruce doesn't appear right until the end. One overdone film, borrowing the Texas Chainsaw 'meat hook' scene, but 14 years after it had been done before. ('Intruder' was made in 1988).
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/Oct/20
I've been bidding mindlessly for a copy of 'Intruder', which is a Sam Raimi film, and the cover looks disgustingly bloody. This was my second attempt and I won! I like Bruce and Sam Raimi together.

Bruce gets 6ft0.75.

⭐ Shouldn't he be added to the Horror page, Rob? 😉
Kale - 186.5 said on 23/Oct/20
Looked a good 1.85-185.5 in the 80s, down to around the 184 mark now in his 60s.
Eric W. Tam said on 2/Oct/20
He's probably 6'2 with boots on if he's almost 6'1 barefoot. 6'0.5.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Jun/20
🎂👹🎁🎊 Happy Birthday Bruce! 🎊🎁👹🎂

A Very Happy Birthday to talented actor - and plenty more besides - Bruce Campbell, who turns 62 today.

6ft1 peak and possibly half-an-inch less today, but he's getting 6ft1!

Crossword said on 30/Apr/20
Rob, I think he was a legit 6'1 guy in his prime. Now 6'0 1/2
Canson said on 27/Apr/20
I wonder why he would say he’s 6’1” in boots when he’s 6’0.5” barefoot. Was he still growing?
Desky said on 8/Apr/20
Definitely looks over 6ft
Jkiller said on 17/Jan/20
184.5cm, 6'1 peak.
al001 said on 24/Dec/19
Still looks a very strong 6'0
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Nov/19
In My Name is Bruce just a decade ago he look close to 6'1 maybe 6'0 3/4.
K.A 188 said on 27/Aug/19
184 as listed
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/Jun/19
Ha ha Rob! I haven't seen the 'pointy' photo yet! 'The Evil Dead' has become such a classic horror film franchise that it's no exaggeration to say that it's one of the most frequently shown vintage horror films on TV today, and I'm not just referring to showings on the Horror Channel.

Then, coupled with watchings of the Series, 'Ash vs Evil Dead', it's rare for horror film fans to go without seeing some form of 'The Evil Dead' for any great length of time. I know I view them regularly, my favourite being the first one, the remake, in which Bruce played a major part on the production side, and the Series. Although Bruce is at an age when height loss is commonplace, I simply haven't noticed it. No visible loss as yet! Nothing, nichts, rien, niente, nada to speak of!
(What a bloody great show off I am this afternoon!) 😩👅😛

I can see 6ft0.75 for Bruce.
TheBat said on 23/Nov/18
Bruce's 6'1" claim makes more sense than claims from several celebrities. 6'0.5" is a good listing for him.
Tall Sam said on 26/Sep/18
At a peak height, Harrison Ford and Bruce would probably be at a dead heat.
berta said on 3/Sep/18
who think harrison ford was taller than bruce in the 70s? I dont. either same height ore bruce won with 1/4 inches
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 5/May/18
I insist Bruce look quite close to 6'1 peak in the 80s/90s like 6'0 3/4 but looking at him now 6'0.25" nothing more. Rob should leave him a peak and current height.
berta said on 4/Apr/18
i think bruce could be a potential 6 foot 5/8 guy peak. very legit 184 guy he looked 185 guy in all the movies. in thiws photos though he looks 184 guy. but i dont think 4 photos is enought to guess a persons exact height. 184,5 seems fine for him peak and still 184
Josh Jeffords said on 14/Feb/18
Still looked about 6 1 in the spider man trilogy also close in burn notice and mini movie.
Didnt see maniac cop heard he looks even bigger in it, never seen him look under 6 foot.
Great b movie actor king of them holds his own with real actors.
Junior Hernandez said on 2/Feb/18
6'0.75" peak and 6'0.25" now.
sumdude said on 26/Dec/17
Wow, doesn't look like he dropped much in height(by looking at pix from 2017), even at the age of 59.
I'm starting to think he was VERY close to 185cm during his youth, it's impossible to not drop in height so we know that he has dropped.. but not how much.
183.5-184cm (2017). Evil Dead: 184.5-185cm.
Harland said on 18/Dec/17
6'0.5" looks right. He was definitely 6'1" when he was younger.
berta said on 22/Nov/17
this guy praobably took harrison ford with 0,8 cm at their peaks. bruce campbelle 184,6 harrion ford 183,8
Alex 6'3 said on 22/Nov/17
184 cm for sure, I thought he was even a 185 actually. He didn't lost height with the age (59 years old now), he always had a really good posture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Aug/17
Rob, could a weak 6ft1 at peak and a strong 6ft today be fair?
Editor Rob
you could argue it. He might have held onto his height fairly well.
even said on 24/Jul/17
6 feet tall or 6 feet plus
RichardSpain said on 25/Jun/17
I watched tonight the movie "manian cop", where Bruce made a policeman role. He seems 183/184 cm barefoot not more. Typical man that with his footwear is 185/186cm. He is tall of course.
S.J.H said on 25/Jun/17
It's weir that he claim 6'1 with boots on which put him nothing over 182cm barefoot but he look to clear 6'0 in movies and look imposing in Maniac Cop like a big 6'1. I still think when he mean 6'1 in boots he forget extra 0.5' and could be a solid 6'0 at lowest and in the morning clear 6'0.5
Victor Surratt said on 17/Jun/17
He is 1.84
World Citizen said on 29/May/17
181. Maybe 182 cm
Mickey said on 26/May/17
5'11.75ft - 6ft
berta said on 17/May/17
i believe listing is fine but to be exact i think he was masybe 184,6 at his peak. very close to 185. Today he is probably 184 flat.
Pierre said on 7/Apr/17
more a weak 6"0' next to Rob imo
John said on 22/Mar/17
6'0;5" peak. 5'11.5" now.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Mar/17
I think he's still 184cm minimum today
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Feb/17
Peak: 6ft1(185.42cm)
Today: 6ft0½(184.15cm)
Chris said on 21/Feb/17
6'0.5" is about spot on, 6'1" peak. He had a good two inches on me at a Wizard convention a couple of years ago, and I'm 5'10".
berta said on 10/Feb/17
hahah cool :P
berta said on 9/Feb/17
yeah that sounds about right it whats he looks. By the wah how was he in person. Was he like in the movies? a mans man but joking and made fun about him and others?. :P
Editor Rob
he was certainly good with fans that weekend, both when meeting for auto's and in photos was having a laugh.
a real character!
berta said on 1/Feb/17
rob am i right that there is greater chance of him being barely 185 like 184,8 peak than lets say 183,5? i think he could be couple mm taller than harrison ford peak
Editor Rob
I think around a decent 184 is probably more believable than say just a little over six foot.
berta said on 27/Jan/17
he generally looks like someone who is barely 185 tall. he aint 6 foot 1 but was probably very close. 184 today.
S.J.H said on 17/Jan/17
Rob, i think it's time you leave a peak height for campbell at 6'1 it fits a young bruce campbell pretty well
Josh Jeffords said on 5/Dec/16
Tall guy way above burn guy and most of cast.
I'd bet 6 1 peak listed current he's older than he looks.
Sarah said on 16/Nov/16
6'0.5 now, 185 or 6'1 ish in Evil dead
183cmAriel said on 14/Nov/16
he might be a 6'1 flat
Giorgi said on 8/Nov/16
He looks taller. I would grant him one more cm.
S.J.H said on 4/Nov/16
Coby Bell is about 6'1.5 so bruce campbell right at 6'0.5 and jeffrey donovan is no taller than 5'11.25 and only time jeffrey look 6'0 when keep it posture is because bruce campbell slouch for him
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Oct/16
In the second line of my comment sent on 8th October 2016, the 'of' was meant to be 'if'! Sorry about that folks! My writing looks as under-par as my height!
S.J.H said on 27/Sep/16
If bruce campbell is 6'0 now how can jeffrey donovan be 6'0? They were obviously not in the same range of height completely. At least 0.75-1.25" height different between them
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/16
Rob, could 6ft flat be closer today?
Editor Rob
at 60 a little fraction lost yeah.
Shredder said on 6/Sep/16
Rob , what is your weight here? you honestly looked best here , this weight matches your frame perfectly.
Editor Rob
not much different than just now, I stayed 155-165 range over 7-8 years
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jun/16
"Peak height was 6ft 1in (185.42cm)"

Looks near 6ft2 in The Evil Dead movies.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Apr/16
He looked particularly tall in Maniac Cop, like near 6ft3! Probably wore big shoes though. He kind of reminded me of Jason Segel in that movie...
MrTatum said on 10/Apr/16
""Bruce Campbell's height is 6ft 0¾in (185cm)""
I wouldn't doubt it, you'd never know.
S.J.H said on 8/Apr/16
I think bruce himself mean it he was 6'1 and 1/4 with boots or 6'1.5 , he just lazy to say add on 0.25-0.5 that make much sense he always look a solid 6footer. 6'0.5 probably a peak height but strange that in maniac cop he look like a 190ish guy in shoe..
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/16
May have been just about 6ft1 in his 20's-30's. He still looks to be clearing over 6ft today.
NBAer said on 7/Mar/16
Looks shorter than the 184 measured guy in Height Challenge...182-183 range seems more realistic i believe.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 27/Feb/16
Al said on 9/Jan/16
"6'1" with boots on." in his own words, yet Rob lists him at 184cm?!?
Rob with all respect, but that's not really smart. He looks 5'11.5. If he were
184cm barefoot, he would be about 6'2 in boots.


I think the "with boots on" is in comparison to regular shoes. Like, he was saying that he can pass for a 6'1" guy in public if his footwear is a little thicker than average sneakers most people wear. Not that he would actually measure 6'1" in boots.

Out of bed: 186-187cm
Before bed: 184-185cm
SJH said on 26/Sep/15
Jeffrey Donovan should be 5'11 if Bruce was only 6'1 in boots. A new pair of boots usually gave around 3.5cm boost. But I believe he was a solid 6 footer
Chase Witherspoon said on 2/Aug/15
I've read his auto "If Chins Could Kill" (not sure if he used a ghostwriter but a very funny read) and I think he said 6'1" though I don't recall w/out footwear; reckon a bet on 185cm peak would fetch juicy odds...
A6'2Guy said on 2/Jul/15
@Rampage (I am A6'1Guy) Recently I can hit 6'3 in the morning and get as low as 6'1.5 at the days end, I lose height quite fast in the day, you can't rule such a lossage out. Please tell me how it isn't possible.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Jul/15
Looked 2in taller than 5ft11½ Matthew Perry in Serving Sara (terrible movie). That was in 2002 when he would have been only 44-45. He was in a cowboy outfit though so may have had shoe advantage. But nearer 6ft1 than 6ft peak is a given.
S.J.H said on 21/Jun/15
6'0 Jeffrey Donovan had an inch lower than Bruce. Bruce should be 6'1
Key said on 23/May/15
Oh, now this is a great guy! He's definitely as tall as he says he is!
Kepler said on 22/May/15
Peak: 185 cm
Now: 184 cm

Jake: 1.84- 1.85 m,

He atually look an easy 6'2 range in maniac cop
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Mar/15
I don't rule out 6ft1 peak either
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 25/Jan/15
He looked strikingly tall in the film 'MANIAC COP'. I think he could've been very near 6ft 1in peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/15
"Bruce Campbell's height is 6ft 0¾in (185cm)"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/14
Rob, is it possible that Campbell might have peaked at 6ft1?
Editor Rob
I think he cleared the 6ft mark, although his quote could be taken both ways that he was 6ft or looked like a 6ft 1 guy when wearing thicker boots.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Nov/14

There is no way he fluctuates 1½in throughout the day. Just over 6ft1 out of bed to just under 6ft at night...not possible. I'd be shocked if he dropped more than 2cm.
A6'1Guy said on 15/Nov/14
I'd say he is 6'1.25 at day's start, 6'0.5 to 6'0.75 at mid day and 5'11.75 to 6'0.25 at day's end, seems about right. That guy's definitely a joker looking at these images, always thought he was too, just makes me laugh!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Nov/14
More 184-185cm than 183-184cm
Judd said on 8/Oct/14
i would put him at 6'0.25"
Clent said on 2/Oct/14
184.3cm in the night
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/14
Donovan is a weaker 6ft
Dmeyer said on 4/Aug/14
Rob was he a bit taller than big alex
Editor Rob
I'd put Bruce in strong 6ft, or near 184 mark yeah, although alex can look just as big, as his frame and posture I think is good for appearing more than measured 183cm
your friend 196 - 197cm said on 11/Jun/14
Always thought he was well over 6 ft.
Silent D said on 5/May/14
He always looks a little taller than jeffrey donovan on burn notice and a little shorter than coby bell. I think coby is 6 foot 2. 184cm and jeffrey 182cm.
TNT said on 9/Apr/14
It was always hard to determine who was taller in Burn Notice. Campbell or Donovan. It probably came down to footwear most of the time. But after several seasons of the show, Campbell did appear slightly taller. So if Donovan is a six footer, which I think is correct, Campbell being a half inch taller makes sense to me.
Connor 184.5-185cm said on 27/Jan/14
Jake yeah, the Evil dead films were my favorites of Bruce Campbell, now im thinking its likely he's not as low as 183cm, he's more likely to be at least 184cm and still around it today, id say he's probably close to my height i might appear a little taller though by 5mms so he could be 6ft 0.25-184.0cm.
Connor 184.5-185cm said on 27/Jan/14
Rob do you think me and Bruce would be the same height in the afternoon if we wore the same footwear in the day or would i still edge him out a bit?
Editor Rob
you might be very close, within half cm
Connor 185cm said on 13/Jan/14
Yeah rob 6ft 0.75 is ok for me to claim since im 5 mms under it at night a legit 6ft 0.5 guy would be 184.0-184.3cm at night, if people ask how tall i am i will say almost 6ft 1.
Connor 185cm said on 12/Jan/14
Rob bruce might measure 183.5-184cm at night then? also do you think i might be a bit taller than him? remember im 184.5 at night which i guess makes me just a legit 6ft 0.75 guy
Editor Rob
your night height I think would be a little taller. A legit 6ft 0.75 I would say would only drop a small amount below at worst, but 'how much below' is the question? 2-3mm or 5-6mm, is that too much? As I've said before it can be a fine line
Connor 185cm said on 11/Jan/14
Rob do you think me and bruce might be the same height in a pic together? he's definetly taller than just 6ft i bet he would measure 184.5 in the evening.
Editor Rob
I don't think he'd be above 184 at night
Garrett said on 3/Jan/14
I had a picture taken with Bruce a couple summers ago and I'm barely taller than him. I'm 6'1 with shoes on. If there was a way to show the pic on here I could show you guys it.
MEE said on 31/Dec/13
Rob, what kind of 5'8 are you? Closer to the short end or the taller end?
Editor Rob
I am 5ft 8 and couple of mm. I've yet to drop below the mark...although 20 years from now that might be a different story.
Lenad said on 30/Dec/13
looks 4-4.5 inches taller. Im aprox 5'10 and this is pretty much how I look next to my dad who is 188cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/13
Jake, 6 and half foot is like 6ft5!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jul/13
He's 184-185cm and Jeff Donovan is 182-183cm

@truth178cm says on 3/Jul/13
yes and 6'4 is what many 6'2 range guys say!
truth178cm said on 3/Jul/13
@avi and 6ft is a classic height average guys like me (5ft9-5ft11) say.
truth178cm said on 3/Jul/13
Could be 6ft0.75
avi said on 1/Jul/13
@Ice says on 3/Jun/13

Ice thats crazy 5'4.5 comes up to my mouth and am 1 or so cm less than you. i think your friend is a weak 5'5. 5'8 is classic height shorter people say when they are 5'5-5'6 range. trust me.
avi said on 1/Jul/13
thought this guy was a strong 6'1.5 for sure. well guess not! you are looking 4 inches shorter here Rob
Emil said on 9/Jun/13
Ice says on 3/Jun/13
My 5'8 friends top of the head , when I was 184 cm , wasnt even up to my mouth . Something is wrong here , Rob is taller than 5'8 or Bruce is nowere over 5'10.5

Dude, if your friend wasnt even up to your mouth and you're 184 cm then he is more likely 5'4 which is around 163 cm. 5'8 is around 173 cm if you didn't know
BRUTAL said on 8/Jun/13
@Ice... or your friend isn't 5ft 8.

Larc 74in said on 26/May/13
Still a strong 184cm upstraight, he even looked 185cm in the Evil Dead series.

An awesome guy by the way.
MattW said on 23/Apr/13
I think he was taller when he made Evil Dead than he is in Burn Notice. He used to be a strong 6'1 and now he's just over 6'0.
richkid123 said on 25/Feb/13
looks a very very weak 6'1" to me
Alex (London) said on 15/Feb/13
I remember him being taller than Dean Cain (Superman) in an episode of Lois & Clark.

When younger & slimmer he looked even taller.

I give him his 6 feet and a half inch - I think he is one of the few honest actors when it comes to height and he is what a genuine six footer looks like.

Hail to the King, baby !! He looks a bit taller in his Spiderman 1-3 cameo but Hollywood is Hollywood - like insane 6`3+ Hardy in a few TDKR "head to head" scenes. The perfect example of strong 6` guy.
m said on 6/Feb/13
i thought he was 6'4
Connor 184cm said on 31/Dec/12
Actually i think rob is right with this listing i used to think he was 5ft 11.75 but now i think 6ft 0.5 is fair but in the top left hand picture he looks 183cm but with head up and straight he will easily look 4.5 inches taller. Rob he could be 185cm in the morning and maybe 182 or 183 in the evening?
Editor Rob
I don't think he'd drop to 182, but he's most likely somewhere in 6ft - 6ft 0.5 range.
jasper186cms said on 19/Nov/12
I agree with dmeyer about the top right pic and rob is 182cms is a good shout.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Oct/12
I think Donovan is 182-183cm
Larc-186.7-188.6cm said on 12/Oct/12
To be honest, he looks close to 6'1 to me, maybe 6'0.75, he looks more than half an inch taller than Jeffrey Donovan.
Dmeyer said on 3/Oct/12
CAN look 5'11.25-5 in in lost pics above exept the to top one on the Right were hé looks close to 6 ft 0.5 ,
Shaun said on 12/Sep/12
This guy would have made a perfect Ace Ventura!!
Alex said on 9/Sep/12
He looks pretty much the same height wise against Rob as I did. 6'0-6'0.25 I'd give him.
Alex said on 9/Sep/12
Rob, what kind of New Balance did you have on that day? I feel some New Balances can give more like 1.25 the ones with the thicker heel.
Editor Rob
bruce had on NB, I think around 1 inch most likely
Len said on 19/Aug/12
Best B-movie actor of all time. And 6'0".
Connor said on 15/Aug/12
Hey Rob from what I see on these pictures Bruce looks at least 3.5 inches taller than you so if he was to stand next to you barefoot and with your shoes off, would that him look like a strong 5ft10 in comparison next to a strong 5ft8 guy like yourself?
Connor said on 12/Aug/12
Is it just me or does bruce look a bit like Jim carrey, I could buy 5ft11.75 for this guy still fairly tall.
Captain Spaulding said on 11/Feb/12
In the top right picture he looks like he could easily be 6'1". And in the other pics he looks like he's leaning down while rob has better posture. Solid 6'1" I'd guess, or at least 6'0.75"
henry said on 8/Feb/12
he look tall.likely 6'1 to me
FACE said on 14/Jan/12
looks taller than jeffrey donovan in burn notice
maybe 6'1 peak?
steven said on 11/Jan/12
def 184cm and looks it for bruce campbell. i wonder 6'1 peak
Sean73 said on 1/Dec/11
He is one of the all time classic guys you will ever see!I think 6-1 25 years ago,and 6-0.5 nowadays.
linke said on 30/Nov/11
Such an honest guy and good actor too.
ChiasmataX said on 21/Nov/11
This is exactly how a solid 183cm guy would looks. His big frame makes him look taller. He's not more than 183cm if you compare him with the 186.8cm guy from the height challenge.
LAN JIAO said on 18/Nov/11
i had a friend who measure by me at 6'0.75(noon) just few mm shy of 185cm and he always say 6'0 as height might be easy. im thinking a chance bruce campbell is 6'0.75 and 6'1 peak.

rob , how about 6'0.75 for bruce ?
LAN JIAO said on 17/Nov/11
he atually look alot like 6'1 at peak. he maybe downplay a bit height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Nov/11
Height is 6ft0.75(1.85m)
1.86m-1.87m in shoes
thebad7 said on 5/Nov/11
More 6'1" than 6'0"; he always looks this in his films. What compelled me to buy 6'1" versus 6'0" flat for him was 1988's MANIAC COP. There is a scene in which he is standing face-to-face with 6'2" William Smith and Campbell looks an inch shorter than a then 55 year old Big Bill Smith. Weak 6'1" for Bruce Campbell.

@Larc: I agree with you, he does look close to 6'1" in BURN NOTICE.

Maximus said on 31/Aug/11
Legit 6'.......doesnt need lifts.....a natural 6'1 to 6'1.5" with regular shoes.
Larc 6 ft 1.75 in said on 26/Aug/11
He's tall, he can even be 6'0.75, he looks it in Burn Notice.
Legend said on 18/Aug/11
He could be over 6 feet after watching burn notice actually...
Legend said on 17/Aug/11
He's 5'11.5
Terryman said on 17/Aug/11
the strongest most legit 6 footer you'll ever come across!
Alex said on 11/Aug/11
6'0 and change def.
Mathew said on 29/Jun/11
6'0.5" is pretty much spot on.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jun/11
There is a chance he's 6ft1

the top of Robs heead comes up to Bruces eyes. 4-4.5 inches

Nothing less than 6ft...Rob has him nailed
Lenad said on 11/Jun/11
I can see 4-4.5 inches taller
James said on 10/Jun/11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 8/Jun/11
Well, James this guy doesn't look have huge muscles. But I get your point. Like Ronnie Coleman at 5ft10 or so isn't considered tall but he's got arms that are bigger than the legs of an average bloke so he could be categorised as 'imposing'.

@Andrew I'm 6ft3

A 6ft guy with big muscle and good posture will look quite imposing but not super imposing like a 6'4 or 6'5 guy would.
J.J. said on 10/Jun/11
Looks at least 182cm

Rampage, how tall are you? I'm 6'6''
James said on 3/Jun/11
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 26/May/11
James, since when is 6ft imposing?

This guy usually looks close to 6ft1 on Burn Notice.

Rampage given that your a fair amount over 6ft of course its not going to look imposing to you but to average height people 6ft will look tall/above average.

okay a scrawny guy at 6' would certainly not look 'imposing' but if a legit 6ft guy worked out at the gym and got huge muscle etc he would look big and imposing for sure.

when your 6'2 you can be scrawny and skinny but look imposing cause your tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/May/11

Kaneda said on 14/May/11
This guy walks around as a solid 5'11 0.75 182.5cm guy but in reality is 6'0.5 184cm, he has terrible posture and he's a bit overweight, he looks 182.5 in burn notice.
Godred said on 13/May/11
@PatB - I think there is alot more heroic male movie star action types around the 6 ft and under mark than around the 6`3 mark.
PatB said on 12/May/11
"Why would a 6.05'-6'1 guy wear lifts? He's already tall!"
That's tall for a girl. Kinda short for a heroic male movie star, even for a mock hero. Campbell is great but I'm sure he and his agent would prefer that he was 6'3" or so.
DMaN1528 said on 11/May/11
Dmitriy K says on 6/Mar/11
6' to 6'.5" inches max. In this photos he could also be wearing lifts, so his stated height could be way off. Again, like I posted before height doesn't matter only genuine talent does.

if you know any thing about Bruce Campbell its hes the type that doesn't wear lifts hes a down to earth funny awesome guy who looked 6foot1 in the first evil dead to me. which was filmed from 1979-1980.
dmeyer said on 4/May/11
i think wath he means he he wears 1.5 in boots and will be the samme a 6 ft 1 men in 1 in shoes
James said on 2/May/11
imposing guy at 6ft
Larc 6 ft 1.5 in said on 9/Apr/11
He is quite tall, like a very strong 6'0 (6'0.5 at lowest), or a weak 6'1, it's the same.

6'1.25 (when he wakes) - 6'0.5 (at lowest)
James said on 8/Apr/11
Defenintly 6ft
Adam said on 5/Apr/11
Hahaha I love the guy below that says "could be wearing lifts". Why would a 6.05'-6'1 guy wear lifts? He's already tall!

He looks really tall in the first pic, but maybe it's his build or large head.
Aaron said on 3/Apr/11
I love this guy, and he's genuinely honest and self-aware. 6'1" with boots might have been an undershot. I've always taken him to be a 6'2"+ man, probably because of his build and macho man persona, but I'd believe 6'0.5" minimum.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Apr/11
6ft0.75 I don't rule out
James said on 27/Mar/11
He does look 6'1 in the top right pic but he is raising his head up

He looks too tall to be 6'0 flat, he's at least 6'0.5, maybe 6'1 or more in the morning.

185/186cm when he wakes

I met him last year. Very friendly and funny guy.

I'm 6'2 and I was a little taller than him. Around 6' seems right.

Looked the same height as craig ferguson.

I'll give him 6'0.25" on the dot cos Rob is 5'8.25" he looks 4" taller than Rob. That still make him 184cm anyway
TNTinCA said on 6/Jul/09
I love these pics.

And you can tell with how much fun he is having that he is one of the more likeable actors in Hollywood.
Da Man said on 24/Jun/09
And Bruce still looks to be a very solid 6' guy based on Burn Notice.
Da Man said on 24/Jun/09
Bruce showed up in all 3 Spider-Man flicks:
1. The ring announcer that first called him Spider-Man instead of "The Human Spider"
2. The doorman at MJ's play, who wouldn't sit Peter when he showed up late.
3. The French concierge, who insisted on calling him "Pecker".
AKK said on 24/Jun/09
He was in Evil Dead, then he showed up in Hercules/Xena working with the Raimis, as Autolycus, King of Thieves(remember his He-la-he-hoo! battlecry?), as Jack of All Trades(half hour split with Cleopatra 2525). After that, he worked with the Raimis again, in Spider-man(2?). And yeah, the Raimis stuck Lucy(Xena) in Spider-man 1 as the punk girl who said something like "Maybe he's got 8 arms? That would be hot!"
Barry Langcaster said on 12/Jun/09
I would say this height listed here is accurate 6'0.5, very possible that he was 6'1 in his prime.
Doug said on 9/Jun/09
Looks like a 6'1" guy to me.

Hugh said on 6/Feb/09
He's at least 6ft. 6ft1 is possible too.
glenn said on 13/Jan/09
true.he should be thankful of having a decent career,period.even if he is b-list.b+ at that.he isnt c or d list.hope he reads this.
Hugh said on 11/Jan/09
I'm sure he was glenn. He's older now. He's just jealous of these young a-listers becoming bigger and bigger. When he was at his peak the Josh Hartnetts and Matt Damons of today were wetting their diapers.
glenn said on 7/Jan/09
i met him 1989.and he was the sweetest guy.
Hugh said on 6/Jan/09
And Glenn you hadn't seen this guy in 18 years? I'm assuming he was pleasant to you when you met him years ago.
glenn said on 16/Dec/08
he should realise we made him.he has been like that all of the 2000s at least from what i hear.
jacky burton said on 15/Dec/08
Glenn, Bruce seems to be just more irritable in general lately. When you see him in interview he'll sometimes insult his fans suggesting that they're pathetic and silly for being so fanatical about the Evil Dead movies.
glenn said on 11/Dec/08
how the times have changed.bumped into him 6-8 months ago and he was pretty rude with me.tried to get him 6 weeks ago and he snuck out of a screening.for 2 the only one waiting.seemed 6ft earlier this year.not the 6-3 i remembered 18 years ago.6-1 it is tops.
Hugh said on 11/Dec/08
I'd say a weak 6ft1. He did look pretty tall in the Evil Dead.
Haze said on 14/Nov/08
awesome pics rob. looks like a fun guy. and his listing seems spot on
Lenad said on 30/Aug/08
He usually looks taller than most people on screen so I'd say this height hes listed at or a little more.
Jam said on 23/Jul/08
He looks taller in The Evil Dead, that may be because all of his co-stars were generally short.
Anonymous said on 20/Jul/08
lol i love the bottom left photo. he seeems a legit 6ft.
Nixtrax said on 18/Jul/08
Yeah, hes around 184 cm
EB said on 10/Jul/08
He looks like a bit of a character
Lego said on 10/Jul/08
WOW! best height post yet, my favorite actor ever, he seem quite big in body and his height seem correct, i reckon he's more like 6'0-6'0.5 so the listing in correct imo. ;)

Big Show said on 10/Jul/08
This height looks to be spot on or at least very close. I always thought he was in the 6'-6'1 region. He ain't 6'3 as he was several inches shorter than Kevin Sorbo in Hercules. Cool photos btw, you probably have pictures now with the entire cast of Evil Dead.

Editor Rob
yeah bruce and the 3 ladies, huge cast ;)
shemp said on 9/Jul/08
Finaly Rob :) I was there too, Bruce is an awesome guy. So now that you've seen him in person, what do you make of his height?

Editor Rob
I think still 184cm is what he is. His posture looks slightly loose at times.

I liked coventry event, will be going back to the next one later in the year!
anonymous said on 9/Jul/08
cool pics rob.
Vegas said on 9/Jul/08
looks 6'1 in the top left pic, the only one where he is standing straight, 184cm is probably spot on
Explodius said on 9/Jul/08
Why does Rob never show his eyes?
Charliemoto said on 13/May/08
Campbell never looked short he infact looks taller than his height even though his head is smaller but longer and and his body larger than his waist..

in Aliens Apocalypse he borders on 6'3 with pretty normal 1.5-2cm space shoes with no almost no heels, of course it might just be an illusion because of his body shape.

in reality he is a legit 183-184cm, 186-187 in boots and probably 190 in lifts.

Bruce is one of my favorite actors ever, even the bad movies he make them real cool. ;) BUBBA-HO-TEP ftw!
Ray said on 11/Mar/08
I met him at Collector Mania Midlands recently and he seemed to be a solid 6ft. I'm about 6'3 and he was about 2 inches shorter. Really cool guy btw.

Editor Rob
it was a hilarious photoshoot he done...I went back on Sunday to get another pic in fact...
berta said on 20/Feb/08
i thought he locked like 185 in evil dead but 184 in burn notice
sabrina said on 6/Feb/08
height can be very... decieving. i have been told by doctors i was about 6 feet even, yet on my drivers liscense it says 5'10", it just depends on how straight you stand and how you carry yourself. oddly enough though, at 6 feet he towers over some major movie stars. tom cruise anyone?
Yitzhak said on 17/Aug/07
Hmm, interesting.

He doesn't seem any taller than jeffrey Donavan in Burn Notice. Maybe slightly shorter.

6'0 flat. Maybe less; I just can't see more than the current listing.
glenn said on 23/Jul/07
i heard he changed around xena lightened up a bit,i think.
Viper said on 22/Jul/07
Bruce isnt cool now? Ive always thought he was the epitome of cool.
glenn said on 22/Jul/07
the 6ft sightings are aplenty.but at one or more did witness him at 6-3.i heard he aint too cool now.
Viper said on 22/Jul/07
I havnt seen too many of his movies, but the few I have seen he looked 6-0 to me. But then I see him in Spiderman and he looks very tall. Which makes me beleive that Glenn really did see him at a very tall height in 1989. I thought Glenn was crazy with that 6-4 at first, but not anymore. This guy probably has worn some major lifts on occasion in person and in some movies.
Viper said on 20/Jul/07
Yeah, Spiderman
Anonymous said on 19/Jul/07
I've met him twice. Once my dad was with me, and my dad is 182cm. My dad and Bruce were around the same height. And Viper don't you mean the new Spiderman movie?
Anonymous said on 14/Jul/07
On the cable series, Burn Notice, Campbell looks taller than 6'1" Jeffrey Donovan.
Viper said on 22/May/07
Maybe Glenn is right about the 6-4. He gave me a 6-4 impression in the new Superman movie.

Editor Rob
he was always shorter than sorbo on the eps of hercules he done, well, on the interior sets you'd see it better and their footwear wasn't exact either.
Drew said on 11/May/07
Since when do boots add only 1cm, Rob?
Franco said on 23/Mar/07
he is one of the best actors ever, had a chance to see him from 10 meters away (couldn't get near) but he looked 1.83cm nowadays so 6'0 to 6'0.5 is pretty much correct unless he is using lifts which i doubt at all.
Jim said on 20/Mar/07
I met Bruce on three occasions. For his book signing for If Chins Could Kill and Make Love the Bruce Campbell way. And during his talk back on Evil Dead the Musical. I am a bit over 6'2" and when I stood next to Bruce he had to look up at me. I would say he is not 6'1" but he is over 6' so 6'0.5" is right. Great guy too.
shemp said on 16/Dec/06
Yeah, Bruce is awesome. The coolest and nicest guy I've ever met. I've met him 3 times for book signings and he looked around 6ft.
Hail to the king, baby.
Jeremiah said on 27/Sep/06
Met him Last night in Tucson. 6'1", with a big personality
Domibucks said on 18/Aug/06
I've thought he was a tall guy when I watched Evil Dead. This looks about right.
Anthony said on 3/Aug/06
I always thought he was 6' even. He doesn't give off the impression of a very tall man when I see him as Ash. Maybe it's just me.
trueheight said on 13/Mar/06
yea he fluctuates alot, he looks under 6'1 next to 6'4 kevin sorbo in Hercules
Glenn said on 13/Mar/06
I saw 6-4 in 1989.
trueheight said on 13/Mar/06
Something I regret, I left the LA book signing/screening of Bubba Ho-Tep in '02, when Bruce was promoting "if Chins could Kill. He may claim only 6'1 but in all the candid/fan pics i've seen, he looks MASSIVE, about 6'2 barefoot at least. And in fan forums, he is regarded as anywhere from 6'2 to 6'4!
trueheight said on 12/Mar/06
This quote was taken from his Autobio "If Chins Could Kill", describing the 1st time he met his 2nd wife. I wouldn't put too much *thought* into this quote as far as any subliminal meaning. He's 6'0 even, and looks spot on by most photos. His lanky build(chubbier lately), can make him appear taller.
Glenn said on 24/Feb/06
wow.when I was a kid I met him.he looked 6-3.maybe boots?
Brian said on 23/Feb/06
Met Bruce in LA when he was promoting the Spiderman video game at E3...he's the same height as me, with shoes on, about 6'1"
Viper652 said on 13/Oct/05
Bruce has always looked 6-0 to me as well.
elio said on 12/Oct/05
I think 6'0 is accurate. The boots comment probably meant he would seem a little bit taller if he was wearing boots and normal shoes. E.g a 2" boot would not make someone 6'0 look 6'2. It would make them look like a 6'1 guy... given that every genuine 6'0 person wearing footwear will always be standing around the 6'1 mark.
