6ft1 peak is correct, he was taller than Andy Kaufman (at least 6ft) on Taxi
Ethan Larsen said on 2/Jun/23
6'1" flat peak, he lost quite a bit of height. Clears 5'10" but only by a quarter, if that.
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Apr/23
I saw One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest recently and laughed at Christopher’s prodding scene - so funny! (β€œPlay the game (poke) play the game!”)


He comes out with so many amusing things, but the terribly sad ending has my stomach in knots every time.

Peak height - 6ft1 and now - 5ft11.75.

@Kirill-6’0 you do realise that it’s not Pedro Pascal in the suit? He only provides the voice when he isn’t filming scenes with his helmet off, plus he was filming the last of us during the mandalorian production I believe.
Kirill-6.0 said on 5/Apr/23
I'm currently watching season 3 episode 6 of The Mandalorian. The stooped Christopher Lloyd is about 2 inches taller than Pedro Pascal in the Mandalorian helmet at 32 minutes. So Lloyd is clearly more like 185 cm now. Or Pedro Pascal 173-175 cm, which I can't believe.

185 on a good day. 6 foot 3/4

Could you add One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest to his acting credits?
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 2/Apr/22
Christopher Lloyd’s is a nice, friendly face to greet me this fine Saturday morning!

I’d never have thought he was all of 6ft1 when I saw him in the brilliantly memorable β€˜One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’ the first few viewings. I saw it extremely frequently during my elongated stay with my Dad in 2005, yet neither of us ever grew tired of it; our taste in films was identical. β™ŠοΈ

Peak: 6ft1; today: 5ft11.5. 😁
5'11 1/4 guy said on 28/Feb/22
Looks like 181-2cm in this photo
After so many years after that photo 5'11 is fair.
Rory192003 said on 18/Feb/22
I genuinely think he was somewhere in the 185 to 186 range in his prime max and now a weak 5'11 could be in that 5'10.5 to 5'10.75 range now.

Peak: 6'1.25
Now: 5'10.75
Lawrence099 said on 10/Feb/22
Probably 6’0.75 or 6’1 peak but now he honestly looks under 5’11.He probably measures 5’10.5 when standing tall today but with bad posture can easily look 5’10.He just didn’t look much if any taller than bob odenkirk and looked similar to Clooney in photos from last year.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 13/Jan/22
I saw him in The Addams Family for the first time over Christmas!

Peak height - 6ft1
Today - 5ft11.75
Toby Barrett said on 14/Dec/21
Click Here looks 5'11 in this image of him and michael j fox so good current height listing
Krissy said on 26/Oct/21
He looks solid 6ft+ in the photo with you rob. Unless you noticed him wearing lifts, he needs an upgrade.
Editor Rob
It was 13 years ago when he was still 6ft range, but he lost another inch since then.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Sep/21
He looked a decent enough 6ft1 in Taxi and One Flew Over...
viper said on 7/Sep/21
My Uncle is 83 and hasn't lost anything. Where does that put him

Always has good posture too.

Lloyd has lost more than average, imo.

Or it's bad posture and he hasn't lost much. A lot of the time that is the case.
berta said on 4/Sep/21
i saw clue ( 1985) yesterday andi dont really agree that he was legit 6Β΄1 at peak. I thoyght he looked over 6 feet but under 6Β΄1. I think he was 184,5 cm peak and today 180. 4,5 cm lost at age 82. I guess that is within the normal range, maybe a fraction better than average?
David Tang said on 23/Jul/21
6'1 peak
Louis Green said on 21/May/21
In Taxi he looks a solid 6 1 maybe taller standing next to Conway who is always listed peak 6 2 and andy Kaufman listed always 6 1 . In one episode the two look a maybe a hair shorter than Conway . They are all standing together. Kaufman was always stooping in the role.
viper said on 17/May/21
6-0 peak
Sulu2021 said on 14/May/21
Rob, why the downgrade from 5ft 11.25 to 5ft 11 flat for the current height?
Editor Rob
Over about 11 year period in person went from looking solid 6ft range to 5ft 11.
nicster said on 27/Apr/21
probly a bit closer to 6'0
Editor Rob
he did shrink from 2008 to 2018, I noticed he looked an inch shorter.
Sulu2021 said on 31/Mar/21
He used to be over 6tt, but now he is under 6ft.
MaskDeMasque said on 11/Feb/21
Did he really stoop in BTTF? In those films he looks 183-184 range but if stooping I guess 6'1 peak is fair.

He played a great part in Things to do in Denver When You're Dead. Amazing film. He looks 6'1'' in that.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Jul/20
Berta, I think he was a definite 6ft1 guy in his prime. If you watch Taxi you’ll see that he was taller than Andy Kaufman who many including myself argue was a bit over 6ft himself.
berta said on 18/May/20
never thought he looked taller tahn 184 cm but i can believe 184,5 to be possible. but 185,5 is very hard to believe. this guy would have had 1/4on harrison ford and ford was about 183,5-184.
Andrea said on 30/Apr/20
Given that aged 70 (at the time of the photo) he still looked near 6', I think it is pretty much safe to say that he had to be 6'+ at his peak, but maybe a chance of 6'0.5?
It's funny that in Back to the Future the difference between him and Fox never looked particularly big (as much as 9 inches or so), but then again he slouched big time in just about every scene he had with him, probably precisely in order to reduce it. Paradoxically, this outtake scene is probably the only scene where you can tell how big it actually was: Click Here
Editor Rob
in 2008 he could look near 6ft, but in recent years like 2-3 years ago he looked nearer 5ft 11.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Apr/20
Looks more 5'11.5" with Rob, but had maybe 1/4" more footwear, (I'm assuming) so 5'11.25" is perfect.
RichardSpain said on 7/Jan/20
Mr Lloyd has a good look nowadays in his recently 81 th birthday.

i think he was a strongly 6 ft 1 but now close 6 feet

Rob and sandy and all i wish you a happy and a funny new year 2020 :)

6ft1 peak, 5ft11.5 now. πŸ˜πŸ‘

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jul/19
I still think 6ft1 is fine for his peak. He looked it on Taxi and in One Flew Over...
Frank Bottle said on 4/Jul/19
I also watched Clue yesterday and agree with @RichardSpain that he looked about 183/4 cm in year 1985. Nowadays, he looks 179/180. Peak height I can believe 6ft 1 though..
Editor Rob
Lloyd was closer to 6ft in person the first time I seen him, but through 70 to 80 I think lost another inch, he looks more frail in last couple of years.

Same thing with George Romero, the 8-9 years between seeing him, he shrunk 2 inches and was very frail towards his last couple of years.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/19
Taller than Andy Kaufman (very strong 6ft) on Taxi
Sandy Cowell said on 2/Feb/19
You lucky sausages!

I'd love to meet Christopher Lloyd! What a master of an actor!

His laugh when he heard that noise of breaking free when THE BIG GUY threw that bathtub through the window! I join his scream EVERY time!
RichardSpain said on 29/Dec/18
Yesterday night I was watching movie clue where mr lloyd is more or less young has 47 years old and he looks not more than 183cm. So, I doubt if this actor was a solid 185 or 6'1 feet. My guess to him is 183 cm in prime and maybe 180/181 cm nowadays.

A good actor excellent! well !Merry christmas to everybody and a happy new year especially to our friend Rob...
Victor Malmstr?m said on 22/Sep/18
he is 79 years old, i think that he has done pretty good if he was 184,5 range and now 181. about 4 cm lost at that age is not bad
Visitor said on 12/Jul/18
Alirealist, supposing you're referring to the BTTF skit in 2015, he was barely even the same height as Kimmel. Coincidentally, both men have in the past said they are "6 ft 1".

Lloyd when he was younger, yeah probably a quarter over 6 ft.
Alirealist said on 14/May/18
Taller than Jimmy Kimmel. And he has visibly lost height. 6'1 peak
is very possible.

Christopher Lloyd, being such a knockout of an actor, is one of just a handful whose tall height was overlooked by me because I was paying far too much attention to his brilliance to take it in!

Peak height - 6ft1
Today - 5ft11.5

He's not over 5'11" today.

rob could 6 foot 3/4 be better listing. look in some way taller than 184 flat peak but not a big 6 foot 1 guy.cant see him taller than cena really
Editor Rob
It's not impossible for his peak to be just shy of 6ft 1.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/17
He wasn't standing as well in 2011 compared to 2008
The Shredder said on 14/Dec/17
Rob , would you say 5'11.25 is still the minimum he is now ?
Editor Rob
he might walk about shorter but still measure over 5ft 11.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Dec/17
I'm not convinced he's lost 2in
Editor Rob
really has lost a chunk of height in last 10 years, I noticed the difference seeing him this year compared to 10 years ago.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/17
Back To The Future isn't a good movie to gauge his height at all because he deliberately stooped to look more convincing as the beloved doc...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Dec/17
Excuse me I forgot about Will Sampson who at 6ft5 would have been the tallest...
Shredder said on 4/Dec/17
I mean 5'11.25.
Shredder said on 4/Dec/17
I think 5'11 might be best now.
The Shredder said on 3/Dec/17
Rob , would you say a 2010 Michael Biehn looked taller than LLoyd does now?
Editor Rob
yes, Lloyd has definitely lost an inch since the first time I seen him, but then given his age, it's natural he'd have lost that amount in 10 years.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Dec/17
I just saw him in Cuckoo's Nest and he's by a long shot the second tallest guy there after the enormous Vincent Schiavelli. No question he was over 6ft...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Dec/17
Rob, is it believable that he's lost 2in?

He does look 5ft11 range these days but looking at Taxi it's obvious he was once 6ft1
Editor Rob
he looks barely over 5ft 11 now.
fisherman said on 17/Nov/17
It's tricky estimating his height based just on BTTF since he's mostly in scenes with Michael J. Fox who is in any case less than 5'7... There's a really big difference to begin with, whatever it is exactly. Also Fox wore Converse or something similar with basically zero lift and Lloyd wore those bulky boots with the lab suit...

I'd say peak: 6'0.25". By the way this is actually a nice example of realistic height loss, the listings, the pictures, the guesses. NOT 5 inches by age 50 like some people desperately claim on many pages here, but a sensible ONE inch at age 70. Today, now that he's almost 80, he's definitely lost a little more but about 2 yrs ago when he was on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show in that one skit he didn't look short. Probably still close to 5'11.
Anonymous said on 31/Aug/17
Nowadays next to Rob and Jenny (174 cm) Lloyd seems still a strong 182 cm so probably he was in the 185cm o 6'1 mark when he was young.
He has a bad posture in some movies because he lives the roles very much. Excellent actor especially for comic roles. I'll never forget his best roles like Dr. Emmett in back to the future and Uncle Fester " The Addams Family"
berta said on 29/Jul/17
when i think of this guy and someone like kevin costner i actually believe there was really about 1-1,5 cm beetween them in reality. costner was probably more in the 186 cm range ore 2 mm under and this guy was probably down to 184,6 in the evening/ late afternoon. He could have been a full 6 foot 1 guy but i think 1/4 under this is better listing. I cant really see him taller than a guy like cena.
The shredder said on 3/Jul/17
Rob , how tall do you think he is now?
Editor Rob
he is under six foot now, I think 11.5 is ok for him.
Sandy Cowell said on 6/Jun/17
Re: My comment from the 4th June:
The young lad in the Christopher Lloyd film 'I am Not A Serial Killer' works in a family-run funeral business.
It was completely wrong of me to say that it was 'morbid'! The only thing that IS morbid, however, is the state of the bodies that have been brought in for burial. They looked liked they'd been autopsied by a first-year medical student on acid! I only realised the nature of the business later on in the film....
World Citizen said on 5/Jun/17
Looks 181 cm
Sandy Cowell said on 4/Jun/17
I said on 27th December last that I would be over the moon to see Christopher Lloyd in another - recently made - film! Well, I am doing just that right now! It is a black comedy about a young lad who works in his family's morbid, death-related business and instead of it turning his stomach as it would with most people, it seems to be doing quite the opposite!
Furthermore, there is a serial killer on the loose in his little town, which means more bodies are being delivered to his family's business for him to peruse in fascination!
Christopher is an old, happily married and respected member of the community, but he is an oddball! He also looks taller than ever, but then I did notice him wearing an extremely chunky pair of shoes, which probably elevate his height by some one-and-a-half inches, but not many old men would be fit and strong enough to wear heavy things like that, not to mention use the apparatus he is using in the local gym - and with such gusto!
No, all is definitely not right with Chris's character! I observed that he had his picture up - as an ageing student - holding a doctorate or something similar, so that tells us that he is intelligent, another box ticked on the list of requirements common to serial killers!
So is he or isn't he? I'll have to watch the rest and find out!
One thing I have found out though is that Christopher Lloyd is still making films for us, which I'm very happy about! He is also still fighting fit and doesn't seem to have lost much from his stature over time. I'm going along with 6ft now and 6ft1 for his peak. πŸ™†πŸ‘
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/May/17
Actually looking at him when he was younger he did look 6ft1...
berta said on 12/Apr/17
this guy looked 184 -185 but had very bad postuire in almost every roll he took. he can have been 185,5 at peak but not taller 185 on the mm is maybe more realistic peak. today i belibve he stand pretty tall still at 182. he have not lost that mutch
Charlie said on 10/Apr/17
He looks 5'10. I saw a photo of him with Marc McClure and He was 1 inch taller than 5'9 Marc McClure. He does look 5'10 here next to 5'8 Rob.
Editor Rob
Lloyd 5ft 10 9 years ago?

he's not that short! Was taller than malcolm the photographer...not that much, but remember I am coming into photos and being able to see the photographer looking at the celeb and a side on view.

It's why I can see Tyson 1.5 inches smaller and Lloyd taller than the photographer...
RichardSpain said on 7/Apr/17
Maybe 181/182cm today
185cm when he was young

still 183 cm tall :O he must have lost more height than this? i can believe he was 1/4 under 6 foot 1 at peak and now about 181 cm tall
Sandy Cowell said on 27/Dec/16
I simply love this actor! Ever since I saw his laughing, eccentric, fun-loving character in 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', I've been pretty much hooked on him! I will watch films I wouldn't usually see because he's in the cast!
I never thought terribly long and hard about his height, but it makes sense that he topped 6ft in his younger days! He looks very tall next to Fox (bless him!) in the 'Back to the Future' films, but in 'One Flew Over...' the only guy to really stand out on the height front was Will Sampson! Next to Will, everyone else looked small!
It would be great to see Christopher in another film in the not too distant future. He's ACE! πŸ‘Œ
josh jeffords said on 26/Oct/16
Pretty funny this guy still looks a strong 6 ft at his age must have been a tall 6 1 peak.
Very under rated actor played a lot of roles some quite well and good comedian too.
He still looked nearly that in the 90s towered over lots of guys, even with his bad posture.
His lanky build lended to appearance of loft could look nearly 6 2 at times or 6 4 by mjf :@.
Danimal said on 26/Oct/16
Saw a 1982 episode of Saturday Night Live and he looked TALL on the show. Was easily 6'1" in his younger years. Looks about 5'11" today at 78 years old where most men will have lost 2".

@Trent To be double fair he might have lost a fraction of height even then and Wilson was most likely at his peak.

Wilson claimed 6ft2 but is listed 6ft2Β½. He could near 6ft3 beside Lloyd
james said on 9/Mar/15
He was a solid 6'1 at his peak .I've watched bttf 3 he and 6'2 Thomas f Wilson are about the sane height
CDS said on 23/Feb/15
As I believe someone pointed out in this thread, Lloyd, as "Jim" on TV's "Taxi" once stated- on that famous episode that took place at the DMV ("Slow Down" LMAO)- his height at 5'10". Now granted, this was probably similar to Woody Harrelson as Woody Boyd on TV's "Cheers" stating his height at 6 foot, and similar to Ray Romano on TV's "Everybody Loves Raymond" stating his height at 6' as well- just served the purpose of the written episode of that series. Now let's all assume Lloyd is over 5'10", I just don't see him (even at peak height) at a solid 6'1" with no shoes on- maybe 6'-6'0 1/2"-?? There was a movie I saw him in with 5'11" John Ritter, and he looked about an inch taller, however if memory serves correct, he may have had cowboy boots on-?? And FTR- here are my estimates for the cast of "Taxi":

Judd Hirsch- 5'11" (sloucher, so may have appeared 5'10" in spite of his 6' official height)
Tony Danza- 5'9" (looked closer to his official height listing [at one time] of 5'10" on TV's "Who's The Boss" since mostly surrounded by women & children)
Jeff Conaway- 6'0" (character Bobby Wheeler usually had boots on and big hair which may have made him appear 6'1" or 6'2")
Andy Kaufman- 6'0"
Randall Carver- 5'8"
Danny DeVito- 4'10"
lurch said on 11/Feb/15
Looks about 6 foot.
dicksock said on 8/Feb/15
He looks about 4" than Rob and Jenny. I think he's 6' now and possibly 6'1" in his prime.
Judd said on 15/Dec/14
in the addams family series he looked something like 2-3" shorter than Raul Julia...for sure he's character (fester) required a terrible posture, because he's hunchback, but i think Lloyd was however shorter than Julia by more than a flat inche...
If Julia was 6'1.75-2", then Lloyd was 6'0.5" (for sure) or maybe 6'0.75" when was young, but not a flat 6'1". Today he could be in the 5'11.5" range.
Oanh said on 26/Nov/14
5'11" today...6'0 peak.
The Exorcist said on 19/Nov/14
@Vegas: That guy looks more 6'6" range than 6'5".
the shredder said on 18/Nov/14
Rob , did he or Michael Biehn look taller in person?
Editor Rob
I felt was similar to cumberbatch beside the photographer, very close, but a slight edge, Biehn was very close to photographer too, but had a bit more hair sticking up. That was over 6 years ago with Lloyd though, so another bit lost by now is very likely.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Nov/14
@Rampage. I stood about 10 ft away from him in California in the summer of 1997 and he looked solid tall range back then. 6'1" peak is fair.
Vegas said on 17/Nov/14
this guy who frequents another forum i do claims 6'5

Click Here
Judd said on 6/Oct/14
For the most of his career he looks taller than a 6' one. In the family Addams's series he looks much taller than Raul Julia (6'1.5") because he isn't straight with his back...he has bad posture because his carachter (fester) is hunchback...
I think he was no less than 6'0.5" (with a good chance of 6'0.75") during 70-80-90's and today he's like 5'11.5".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Oct/14
I'd argue 6ft0Β½(184cm) lowest at peak...
miko said on 21/Sep/14
He hasn't aged much in about 15/20 years!

He's likely slipped below the 6'0 mark now though. Weak 6'1 peak.
danny185 said on 23/Jun/14
that's not a proper 6'0, really 182, tallish guy
PPS said on 2/Jun/14
In the second series of Taxi as Reverend Jim, he refers to himself as 5 ft 10. It seems unlikely that an actor of 6 ft 1 would do that, or that the others should all agree with him...

Rob, why don't you downgrade him to 181 or 182?
Editor Rob
yeah he could be 5ft 11.5 nowadays
mike said on 18/May/14
181-182today 184-185 peak IMO.
Alex 6'0 said on 9/May/14
His peak was 6'1 or very close. Today looks 5'11.5 with Rob
Editor Rob
yeah today he could be that, actually my pic was 6 years ago, I think now at 75 he could have dropped another fraction.
Powerhouse said on 6/Feb/14
He's definitely slightly under 6'0.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Dec/13
"Peak height was 6ft 0.5in (184.15cm)"
Arch Stanton said on 26/Jul/13
Santa Barbara or Santa Monica pier, can't remember which one it was, it might have been Barbara, one of them. Don't remember much about the place except the filming and that their pizza sucked!
Arch Stanton said on 26/Jul/13
Full 6'1" peak in my opinion. Watch him barefoot next to Vincent in Cuckoo's Nest. 3 inches shorter roughly. On my mother's life I saw him on Santa Monica pier shooting My Favourite Martian in June 1997 and he looked noticeably tall I thought at the time. See him also in cowboy boots and a hat in Back to the Future III , gives the impression of 6'3"-6'4" in that film with the boots and hat.
Ray said on 15/Mar/13
178-180cm no more
Nils said on 10/Feb/13
6ft peak i think
Mark said on 13/Jan/13
Apparently whilst filming BTTF he had to crouch in certain scenes with MJF, looks slightly under 6ft, but no shorter than 5'11, considering he's in his 70s now thats a good height.
Stephen said on 8/Jan/13
182 cm now
ice said on 6/Jan/13
ROB he definately does not have 10 cm on you !!
Connor 184cm said on 2/Jan/13
I dont know rob i think christopher is 6ft rather than 5ft 11.75 he looks 4 inches taller than you in the top left hand picture.
Trent said on 28/Dec/12
To be fair they both had cowboy boots. In this pic here Click Here
I could see him maybe 1.5 - 2 inches under.

Thomas F Wilson has claimed 6'2 and 6'3, and is listed 6'2.5 on this site, so let's give him that. So from looking at him with the Doc I would say Lloyd would have been 6'1 or maybe a bit under.
Arch Stanton said on 26/Dec/12
In the fight scene interestingly the Doc looks a good inch taller than 6'3" Mad Dog, although his posture isn't great. but as I say in some scenes the Doc could look very tall and near 6'4". 6'1" add cowboy boots and the hat and long western coat and his build and long face I think which made him look as tall as that in the third film.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Dec/12
Strangely looks 6'3"-6'4" at times in Back to the Future III. Must be the effect of the cowboy boots, hat and long coat.
Aragorn 5'11 said on 23/Dec/12
5'10.5. 2.5 inches taller than Rob
mike 181cm said on 22/Dec/12
6"1 prime now 5"11.5 hes getting old
Trent said on 2/Dec/12
I'd guess around 5'11.5 considering the 1/4" sneaker advantage. He has quite a high head so you could be thrown off at first. I haven't really looked at pics of him at his peak though.
marla singer said on 28/Nov/12
Looks 5'11-5'11.5 in the picture here...
thc-182 said on 13/Nov/12
looks a strong 5'11 now , 6' is really exagerated
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 30/Sep/12
Rob, his peak I def think he was 6'1 but today he looks maybe 6'0 max. In the picture with you he looks more 5'11 1/2

There is absolutely no way he was 9 inches taller than Michael J. Fox in the Back to the Future series. They looked basically the same height.

I hope you're joking, he still clearly owns MJ even today.

Mmm with MJ stood on the DeLorean maybe. I saw him in June 1997 on the pier 10 ft away from where I was standing and he was surely at least 6' back then.
Larc-186.7cm-188.6cm said on 19/Aug/12
Rob, did he teach you how to go back to the future? :)

184 peak, 181-182 now

Stood ten feet away from him in Santa Monica pier during the filming of My Favourite Martian in June 1997. Looked tall, 6'1" range then.
Jake T. said on 18/Sep/11
On Back to the Future he did look between 8 or 9 inches taller than Michael J. Fox and he was about an inch shorter than Raul Julia on The Addams Family. 6'0 for him is ok.

182cm in all the pics
Larc 6 ft 1.75 in said on 27/Aug/11
miko is right, he aged well.

183-184 peak (even when standing straight, he was clearly shorter than 187 Raoul Julia in the Addams Family movies)

181 now, still tallish
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Aug/11
miko says on 15/Aug/11
He still looks in his early 50's.

As for his height, still around 6'0, maybe a little under.

He's way older than he looks and he doesn't look 6ft(183cm) nowadays. 180cm-181cm tops now...

Met him in L.A. during the Taxi years. Appeared to be between 6'-6'1".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/May/11
Cannot believe guys further down the page are estimating 6ft2...

Don't think he was quite 6ft1 at his peak...6ft0.25 or 6ft0.5 is more likely. Today he looks a solid 5ft11
James said on 21/May/11
maybe 182cm these days
Lenad said on 2/May/11
He was 6'0-ish in his prime. Today 5ft11 max

Does not look over 5"11 in either photo

Always remembered him as a tall guy. I believe him when he says 6'1''. Doesn't loom over Rob it must be said though.
James said on 14/Feb/11
183cm in the top pic with rob and 180cm with a lean in the bottom pic
Claude said on 1/Feb/11
In a cheers episode he was an inch shorter than Ted Danson, who's between 6-2 and 6-3.
Ed said on 30/Jan/11
Was probably 6ft.25 in prime... now 5'11" or maybe a hair over
Lenad said on 7/Jan/11
I doubt he was ever 6'1

6'0 straigthend up in the more recent pic with rob. 5'11 range in the top pic.
arnie said on 3/Jan/11
He might have had knee surgery and that's why he looks 2" shorter than 6'1

As listed 1 foot from me in Burbank at a show.

John Douglas said on 2/Jul/09
I met Mr.Lloyd in New Orleans in 2006. I'm 5'9" and my buddy is 6'1. We spoke to him for a while standing up. No doubt it was him. He right at my height, by buddy was 3-4" taller. Christopher LLoyd is no mre than 5'9.5" to 5'10". We must has spent to much time around Michael J Fox!
M2 said on 20/Apr/09
Christopher Lloyd deliberately slouched in his scenes with Michael J. Fox in the "Back to the Future" films to make himself look shorter...and so they could get them both in the frame! Donald Sutherland also employs this trick with much shorter co-stars.
T.J. said on 23/Mar/09
didnt look 6'1" around Michael J. Fox, more like 5'11"/6'0".
But I've seen plenty of films were he looks a legit 6'1"
Doug said on 8/Feb/09
Yes, 4 inches is extremely rare to lose. Hell Christopher Lee is still around 6'3" at the age of 85. If he'd lost 4 inches he'd be barely over 6 foot flat!! Clint Eastwood has probably lost the most height at around 3 inches, Hulk Hogan has lost a lot of height too, but with back problems/operations it is not impossible.
Doug said on 8/Feb/09
"He looks as if he just stepped out of a coffin - very scary, unintentional though"? LOL I know what you mean, could imagine him brushing off the cobwebs. Incidentally I saw Lloyd back in 1997 filming in Santa Monica or was it Santa Barbara, anyway the crew were out on the pier and I saw Lloyd who was about 20 yards away. Looked a little taller than 6'1" in my view in shoes from what I remember, quite a tall man, but barefoot is likely to be very accurate. Probably lost an inch now haven't sene him of late to offer an estimate.
NATE said on 22/Nov/08
Was he a nice guy, Glenn?
dude said on 25/Jun/08
4 inches in height r u jokin?..2 inches in a severe case n for most people an inch..otherwise wrestlers who normally lose 3 4 inches= would b 8 inches shorter than at tht age lmao ..4 inches the funniest thing i hav ever heard..
Arnie said on 21/May/08
Run for it Marty !!! About 6' now a days 6'.05 in the early 90s and 6'1 standing strait back in his prime sounds bout right.
Manitobaboy said on 7/May/08
Brother H.:
Very few men will lose 4 inches in their decade between 50 - 60 without some serious meidcal condition. Between 70 - 80 maybe buy four inches is a lot to lose, especially for a someone of average height (5'10ish).
My dad was 6'1.5" til was 72 and then he began to lose hieght fairly quickly. He's not much taller than me now (5'11.5") and he's 77.
Caroline said on 4/May/08

even if you straighten the angle he would still appear 3 inches + taller than 5'8 glenn.

end of story.
Darkfalz said on 16/Feb/08
My uncle is over 50, was always 6'3", still taller than me at 6'1" - he has lost 1" if that.
brother_h said on 7/Jan/08
ur jus upset coz im kickin ur ass in this thread.

men reach 50, they begin to lose height alot faster. by 60 they'll be 4 icnhes shorter. i asked my grand dad afew years back when i was younger and growing slowly. and he said "i was 5'10 and 260lbs when i was in my 20's, now im about 5'6 and 210lbs." he use to be a wrestler in ireland, autralia and finally new zealand. and he was the best arm wrestler, even beating world champions. well i think he said world champs or jus country champs

Editor Rob
Lloyd still looks tall here, the angle is taking away a good 2 inches here.
Danimal said on 6/Jan/08
Brother H, when does High School start for you kid? Your vacation is too long and you are a thorn in my side. Go outside and play with your friends.

well when a man reaches 50 and over he loses 4 inches. what say u now danimal.
glenn said on 5/Jan/08
like i said.he seemed 6ft.alot of good guesstimates here.most said that.
Danimal said on 5/Jan/08
The man sure as hell did not lose 3" Brother H.
Jeremiah said on 5/Jan/08
I live in Santa Barbara and have seen Christopher around town a couple of times (he lives in Santa Barbara). I was walking right next to him coming out of a movie theater a couple of months ago. I'm 5'9 barefoot and there's no way Christopher was over 6'. I would have judged him to be 5'11, and was surprised to see him listed as over 6 feet.
miko said on 5/Jan/08
Terrible angle and Glenn is closer, but Lloyd still looks 6"0.
Danimal said on 5/Jan/08
Man has he aged. He looked better as the OLD Doc from Back to the Future than he does now. I used to read that this guy was 6'1". He's 70 years old. I'm quite sure than he has lost some height. At least an inch.
Laura said on 5/Jan/08
he doesnt look 6 ft and a half in that photo! no where near it really
supes78 said on 4/Jan/08
I think he was around 6'1" in his prime easily.
Richard said on 4/Jan/08
I remember him standing next to Hulk Hogan in the movie suburban Commando. Hulk only looked like he had about 2 inches on him.
Maybe Lloyd was about 6'2 back then?
redrum said on 4/Jan/08
Hey Keishum, glad to see another Lloyd fan out there. I have all his albums, especially love his '93 Album :Christopher Lloyd Live In Moscow. His horn section is to die for.
ted T said on 4/Jan/08
This is a very bad pic to judge heights.
glenn said on 4/Jan/08
seemed he mightve shrunk a bit.heard he isnt around much and is usually difficult to obtain.bumped into him.
Random Person said on 4/Jan/08
Weird angle going on in the photo. Make Lloyd look small than he really is. I'd say if the camera were a normal level then there would be about a four inch different. It's possible he's shrunk a bit. I agree with Viper. He was probably 6'1" peak.
Keishum said on 25/Oct/07
Llooyd is my favorite singer he is about 5foot11
Viper said on 10/Jun/07
I just watched back to the future, he still gives me a 6-1 impression at least even though he was slouching so much with Michael J. Fox. Mostly because of his slender long body. I dont think hes quite 6-2 though.
Viper said on 14/May/07
He does look 6-1 to me.
phil said on 14/May/07
definatley at least 6'1'' maybe even 6'2'' but he is pretty slender. I met him in person on the set of a tv show he was doing in 2004. I have a picture of me and him if I can find it..
Alex P. said on 15/Mar/07
Yeah, in the commentary on the Back to the Future DVD, they comment on how Lloyd (whom Bob Zemeckis and Bob Gale describe as 6'2"-6'4", but this is probably their overestimation) would voluntarily slouch himself down to fit into the same frame as Michael J. Fox, hence the great job of making him look shorter.
Alex said on 21/Jan/07
He's def 6'0 plus. 6'1 wouldn't suprise me. Today he must have lost at least an inch of height.
gregor said on 10/Mar/06
What about when "Shep" (Hulk) is wearing gym shoes?
Jason said on 5/Mar/06
Hulk wore massive ''space boots'' in Suburban Commando.
Frank2 said on 3/Mar/06
I've met Lloyd and he's about six feet.
gregor said on 2/Feb/06
The 6'1" is an interesting call. There's an episode of "Taxi" where Lloyd's character is taking his driver's exam. When he gets to the height question, he says, "About 5'10"?" His cohorts respond, "Good. That's good." Should that be taken seriously??????

With all the flap over Hulk Hogan's height, go to "Suburban Commando" and compare the Hulkster to Lloyd. If 6'1" is accurate, then Hulk is in the 6'5" to 6'6" range!
