Van Cleef was 6ft2 making Clint somewhere between 6ft3 and 4.

@Newman, I know lots of those shots are not ideal but you're of course entitled to your opinion but I don't think myself or most other people see only half an inch difference in height between Eastwood and Van Cleef.
Newman said on 4/Mar/18
Tall Sam:

Half of those pictures either show Eastwood and Van Cleef sitting down or are pictured from an awkward angle; showing their head and upper torso only. The latter angles by the way help to create the facade that actors are taller [or shorter] than they are in reality. There's two pics on your link where you see them stood together and there's no more than half an inch between them.

Lee Van Cleef was never 6'2 he always looked 6'1 or 185 cm. Eastwood was probably 4 cm taller or 1'5 inch on him. Eastwood again around 189 cm peak (6'2.5)
Dave 180cm said on 3/Mar/18
Newman the Guy in the hat in that youtobe clip is at least 4 inches shorter than Clint,I don't. Know where your getting 2.5 from.Infact that clip is a good demonstration of how tall the young Clint was.If that Guy was 6ft than Clint looks the full 6ft4 in comparison.
berta said on 3/Mar/18
the average guess seemms very possible. 191,5 is the most i can see him pean and pisbile just legit 191 guy. Today he can look 181-182 but when measured he can be about 182,5
Tall Sam said on 2/Mar/18
@Newman, nice job cherry picking the one where Van Cleef and Eastwood look the same. Googling them together, one gets the impression of a difference probably more than 1 and less than 2 inches. Click Here

In a few dollars more inparticular in some scenes he looked unremarkably tall.

A guy near 6'4 should look huge on screen esspecially back in the 60s.

I suppouse though if a 6'3.5 guy acts alongside lee marvin he will not look that tall.
Newman said on 1/Mar/18
After becoming a big star in the early 1970s and having more creative control over his scenes, it was rare to see him in films standing side by side with other tall actors. There are always plenty of scenes where he is stood next to people considerably shorter.

I think he was a tall fella but my guess is he was only about 6ft 2.5 as opposed to the 6-3/6-4 facade that the films created. Look back at some of his early roles:

Looks the same height as 6ft 2 Lee Van Cleef below

The fella with the hat at 13:50 is 6ft. He looks no shorter than 2-2.5 inches than a young Clint here:

Hes lost 3.5 inches not 4
Ian C. said on 1/Mar/18
Four inches seems like a lot of shrinkage, even for a very tall, very old man. Are there even four vertical inches of cartilage in a tall man's body? And if he's lost cartilage, where did it go? How did it get out of his body? Was it digested as if it were fat? His bones cannot have compressed, surely. Has Eastwood developed severe curvature of the spine? Has he had a vertebra removed?

I'm not disputing that he's lost four inches. I'm just sincerely curious about where they went.

Yep 6'3 max. no more. +0.75 is a lot. People don't know how much can be 0'5 or 1 inch. How ever I also believe he was 6'2.75. Heston could be 6'2. Lee Van Cleef 6'1.25 6'1.5. I think mayority of heights are inflated from reality, usually there is a wrong idea on how tall is a real 6'2 guy.
Dave 180cm said on 27/Feb/18
@jacky you are forgetting one very important thing on the subject of cowboy boots,everyone else in those movies wore them too,so he didn't have any advantage over everyone else because of his footwear.Too me he looked 6ft4.5 in his boots,still about the same height as Christopher Lee barefoot,I think 6ft3 was his true peak height peak.
movieguy1 said on 27/Feb/18
I'm really on the fence about Clint. I'd guess a little under 6'4'' prime or maybe 6'3'' lowest as he just looked tall in comparison with Lee Marvin, James Coburn etc. I think he was also taller than Charlton Heston who was at least 6'2'' maybe 6'3''. It's just that if you look at Clint in photos with say Tim Robbins from time of Mystic River, Robbins looks a lot taller in most if not all of them. How can one guy be 6'5'' and the other 6'4'' when there looks several inches difference although Robbins was a lot younger. Some claim Tim Robbins is really 6'7'' but he looked shorter than James Cromwell and Howard Stern. Ageing, health issues maybe but Clint really seems to have lost a lot of height.

You saying he was 6'3 but 6'4 with his cowboy boots... mmm
Dream(5'9.5") said on 26/Feb/18
Just seeing there's a lot of confussion. Those who are saying he was at least 6'3.5 barefoot are trying to say he was 6'5 minimum with his cowboy boots? Come on please. He never looked that tall with his boots. (usually make a bit over 1'5 inch advantage) He could be 6'4 on his cowboy boots the most he ever looked but barefoot a weak 6'3 is more realistic. In the dollars trilogy he looked 6'2.75/6'3.
James B 170.8cm said on 24/Feb/18
A lot of people just dont understand how tall a barefoot 6ft2 guy really is. Add too that thick shoes,slim body and big hairstyle too someone my height a legit 6ft2 will look huge.

I know someone who is 6ft1 1/2 (he claims 6ft4.5 for his height). Hes overweight,bald and slouches quite often but still looks a huge man.

Heights like 6ft just dont stand out as large compared too heights like 6ft1/6ft2.
Dave 180cm said on 26/Feb/18
I've been watching the 87 year old Clint on YouTube,and he looks very frail now,his posture is terrible all bent up and hunched up,it's difficult too judge his current height,he still looks 5 ft11 range with his Old man posture,leading me too believe that if he was able to stand straight up for a measurement he would still be 6ft .Clint never looked freakishly tall too me,just tall 6ft3,Lee was probably about 1.5 inches taller than Clint at peak.
Jordan87 said on 26/Feb/18
@ James B 170.8cm,

Good POint about Clint and his body type , however I am one to belvie Mr. Lee was over 6'4.

So while I agree with you on Clint, as in him not being even 6'3 in his prime, I am inclined still to believe Christopher Lee was 6'4 and some change. Debating this on the Lee page would be more fit and we can do so.

However , Yes, I agree with you on CLint except I think Clint was 6'2.5 to 6'2.75 during his heyday, not as short as 6'2, but not quite 6'3.
James B 170.8cm said on 26/Feb/18
Lee was already 52 in Man with the Golden Gun so could have been no taller than a solid 6ft4 at that stage.

I dont think clint without the help of his cowboys could ever have given that freakish tall impression that Lee did in some scenes.
James B 170.8cm said on 26/Feb/18
Dream-in the dollers trilogy he looked tall and lanky but not massive by any means.

If you see the scenes christopher lee shared with roger moore in golden gun that is an example of what a massive guy looks like.

Suppousedly lee was 1 inch max taller than a prime clint.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 26/Feb/18
In the dollars trilogy, Eastwood stood out a lot. In most scenes, he was easily the tallest.

Not exactly 6’4”. No less than 6’3.5” at worst.
Judi said on 25/Feb/18
I saw Eastwood during filming in SF. He is clearly under 6'.

Erik9012 said on 24/Feb/18
I believe Clint was a genuine 6'3 in his prime. About 6'4 with his cowboy boots in the Spaghetti Westerns. At 6'2 you're tall, but you don't stand out in the way that you tower over basically everyone else.
Dave 180cn said on 23/Feb/18
@ jordan87 ok point taken, but I still think he looked more 6ft3 range next to Coburn,Hackman,Marvin and others.
Jordan87 said on 22/Feb/18
@ Dave 180cn,

He was not as low as 6'2 my Man. 6'2.75ish I had him at, that 3/4" is a lot, especially on this site.
Dave 180cn said on 18/Feb/18
If he was 6ft2, then James Coburn was 6ft and Lee Marvin 5ft11.5,Gene Hackman 6ft.05,George Kennedy 6ft2.75,Charlton Heston 6ft1,Rock Hudson 6ft3.5,Chevy Chase 6ft2.5,Bill Murray 6ft,because that's what height all the actors I mentioned looked in comparison too a 6ft2 Clint.

To Jordan:
6'2.75 still a bit generous I say 6'2.5 at night in his absolute prime
Canson said on 16/Feb/18
@Walker: excellent points on your part as well! And thanks!!
Walker said on 16/Feb/18
Just watched Play Misty for me (1971) Clint was still 40 doing the movie and clearly is far of being 6'3.75 Rob not even 6'3. He was very slim but again looks a strong 6'2 guy. 187'5-188 cm at night. How's possible some few guess he was 6'3.75 ? lol
Jordan87 said on 16/Feb/18
@ Rory,

Again, where are your pics? I actually do not not mind if you are not putting in effort to prove your point, again that's fine but for a guy who was crying about me not posting pics, you are doing much worse.

The recent comments, after my pics show people guessing Clint lower than 6'3, so I must have changed something. Wish I was here earlier.

If you look back to your first comment before our Ali vs. Frazier contest started you seemed to get highly insulted initially in my original post on here putting Clint at 6'2.5- 6'2.75, and if that sort of thing bothers you....thanks for letting me know. Wasn't my original intent to insult you, but now that I know I have made you agitated by of course initially guessing Clint at Sub 6'3..I know that your the kind of person who lets that sort of things bother you...which leads me to think you are one of those.....shall we say.....unhappy people lol.
Canson said on 15/Feb/18
@Rory: I would say if anything that the greater population inflate vs downgrade. Most people will even go as far as to make a legit guy that say measured it legitimately at a low taller just to make the person they’re commenting on taller. That comes a dime a dozen here. Like a 6’4 5/8 Charles Barkley must be 6’6” because “6’4” Conan is 2” shorter. Only problem is Conan isn’t 6’4” which is clear with other 6’4” guys and Barkley likely isn’t 2” taller it’s less than that but to make Conan taller people do it. Same with the Rock people make him 6’3” when he’s 6’2
Dave 180cn said on 15/Feb/18
Jordan87,in that still from the Eiger Sanction of Kennedy with Clint,Kennedy does not look 1.5 inches taller.If Kennedy was 6ft4 then l have know problem with Clint being 6ft3 and a bit,he looked this height compared too Kennedy in that movie.Your estimate of 6ft2.5 is IMO a bit on the low side but I do agree with you that he was not 6ft4 or even 6ft3.5 peak.
Rory said on 15/Feb/18

I've seen the films mate, the very best resource for guessing height as it shows people in motion standing next to each other etc and I can come up with dozens of names where you simply cannot. I can't be bothered to post pictures but see Clint with Charlton Heston,James Brolin,John Gavin all available on Google images ! See my posts on the 5th February and 22nd December. The fact is too Clint is correctly listed here at 6ft3.75, I support the status even though I've cited examples which back up that listing it's not my responsibility to provide evidence. Let me remind you you're the one who wants him downgraded by 1.25 inches, which means you, yes you need to come up with proof and examples of why such a downgrade is necessary, not me pal. It's called using your brain, it does help.

Lol with respect I won't pay too much attention to what some of the recent posters have put as they seem a little light on content and rationality. As for your picture why not make it more distorted next time ? Maybe try and find one with Clint standing next to someone through the lens of bonoculars in night vision or something ? That by the way is called being sarcastic. What really counts is the reality here, the master at guessing height Rob lists him at 6ft3.75 and the average guess is 6ft3.4, you can try and belittle that and make out it doesn't count but 159 guesses counts more than your and other eccentric extremist opinion on Clint. You're a fringe movement.

What sums it up though is you say "telling me to watch the film doesn't do jack here" well hang on a minute if you haven't watched young Clint Eastwoods films then how are you qualified to comment on his peak height ? Oops. That's that though I won't be replying to you any longer because A) you have nothing to corroborate your claims..B) you talk in riddle..C) you refuse to acknowledge others point of view D) I won the argument ages ago....I've tried to educate you to the idea a young Clint really was 192cm but you're still determined believe your own fantasy of 189cm so it's just a big waste of time on my behalf. Luckily though whenever someone clicks on this page they'll see Clint is listed at his rightful 6ft3.75 and not his conspiratorial 6ft2.5. That's all that matters.
Dave 180cn said on 14/Feb/18
I think 6ft3 is a very honest and believable height for his peak,based on how he compared too other Celebs in his young years.
Dave 180cn said on 14/Feb/18
Walker,Rob has him at 6ft3.75 too,after very carefully observing his height in comparison to other Celebes over time.I happen to think he was a solid 6ft3 peak.and James Coburn looked a genuine 6ft1.5 Guy too me and next to him on a rawhide episode I mentioned in an earlier commentClint looked an easy 6ft3.
Jordan87 said on 14/Feb/18
@ ROry,

I don't actually have to and spend my time convincing just you. Firstly, you haven't posted any pictures of of recent.

Secondly Other posters are citing their opinions and the latest batch seem in my favor (Read). You Are the oddball out, which isn't really my problem to be honest. I have not seen anything from you ( Pictures to start) that would lead me to believe he is pushing 6'4. Saying we are all Jealous doesn't cut it, and you are aware of that ( I hope). So Be quite, OR take your own advice and start posting Champ.

You asked for pics of a Prime Clint yes? I provided one , and the only one available next to a fellow tall guy in Kennedy. Telling me to watch the film doesn't do jack here, and I do not own a copy of it ( as I am sure you do, along with many other of Clint's works I have a feeling lol).

Get me better pictures. Ok, Show me he is 6'4. If not, then be quite. Others here seem to think he is not as tall as he claims. Average guess? People love CLint, so he cannot be " Not 6'4". The guy is a awesome man and we won't get another Star or even a director like him for awhile, or ever.....BUT that is not going to make me inflate his height.
Rory said on 14/Feb/18
Anyone who says he was very close to 6ft3 and he was just over 6ft2 in the same paragraph I'll probably choose to discount and ignore if that's okay with you. What a surprise another clueless poster claiming Clint was one height but having nothing, absolutely nothing, zilch at all to back up their claim, it must be contagious.


Lol facts and contemporaries, we haven't seen a trace of that on this page recently though have we Jordan87 ? The thing is people can say no one guesses height out of personal feelings or jealousy etc but then explain why someone is totally convinced a guy is 189cm and yet cannot supply any good examples of why, yet they remain staunchly of the view he was 189cm ? I can't explain it. These people have nothing at all, not a dime to support their fantasy assertion but still they role with it. It's nuts.

@Dave 180 cm Click Here
This picture I think might be from the early 90s but your point still stands. Despite his height, Chase is famously height conscious to the point where he allegedly refused to work with Sigourney Weaver early in her career because she was too tall!

@ Rory,

Again, Clint looking 1.5" SHorter than a 6'4 Guy , Kennedy. ( An Older 6'4 guy, 100 percent he wasn't even 6'4 anymore), In Clint's " Heydey" . What do you have?

And I am not sure where you keep citing I said he was just " 6'2", HE was 6'2.75.

Evidence? OK Ace.
1. He is 5'11 Now ( Struggles to look taller than Leo)
2. HE was shorter than 6'2 guys in the late 80's ( SHorter than Freeman and Whitaker)
3. He was Shorter IN HIS PRIME than George Kennedy who was struggling at 6'4 b/c he was Old ( 100 Percent true, look at the pic, I know it hurts........I know)

Clint was a peak shade under 6'3, and Is between 5'11 and 6' now. He shrunk 2-3 inches, not the 4" that you want to be the case my man
( For again Some Unknown Reason we have yet to discover)

Again, what do you have? Show me ! Get me Pics, bring me pics Blah Blah Blah.
Dave 180cn said on 14/Feb/18
Jordan87,the pic with Kennedy 1.5 inches in Kennedy's favour?that is incorrect Kennedy looks about half an inch taller and also Clint's leg is bent at the knee and is in much more relaxed posture. Throughout that movie Kennedy never looked more than an inch taller than Clint, in fact in parts they looked the same height.By the way Kennedy was only 50 in that movie and is only 5 years older than Clint,So still a Solid 6ft3 peak to Clint from me.Also that pic with Freeman from 93 Clint looks taller by
.75 of an inch in that too me.
Walker said on 14/Feb/18
To Canson:
Excelent argument man. Tht's why I meant people lie about height and exaggerate I know also a 6'4 friend who say he was not this height for sure 6'2.75 maybe in the 50's
Rory said on 14/Feb/18

the "evidence" you submitted is inadmissible. Why ? Firstly watch the darn film, there's loads of good footage of Eastwood and Kennedy walking side by side and there really isn't much between them at all, Kennedy edges him but it's a close run thing. Secondly, a good picture are you joking ? A picture which is zoomed out,fuzzy,with both men in mid stride ? Yh that's the definition of a shocking picture to judge height...(do I really have to tell you this ? Geez) The final nail in your height credibility coffin is that in that awful picture you claim that's a 1.5 inch difference ? Complete misjudgement in your behalf. I would say please provide me with more evidence but do you know what if everything you come up with is like the Morgan Freeman/Whitaker/Kennedy pictures then just save both of our times and don't bother.
Walker said on 14/Feb/18
Rory please stop with the 6'3.5 3.75 guess which does not make sense. I'm with @Jordan87 @Mr5'11 both brought good arguments and what they say makes sense. I also think he was maybe very close to 6'3 barefoot guy who could pass over 6'3 thank to his slim bodytype and his lenght legs. Id Clint was a weak 6'4 you would say he was 6'5-6'6 and that's absurd. He was 6'2.5 range in the 80's he was about 6'1.75 at best. @ Mr5'11: Rory how are you tall? 5'7? I'm with you Mr5'11 I'm 6'1 and I say clint was clearly just over 6'2 never 6'3 that's only impression look. "Eyes dont lie full agree @Mr5'11·
Canson said on 13/Feb/18
@Rory: I highly doubt people here are motivated by jealousy (at least not height wise). You have a 6’5” guy here along with 2 known 6’4 guys who say he wasn’t 6’4” like he claimed and other guys prob 6’2 or over that say similar. That is exaggerated that people downgrade due to jealousy. It’s because some people just lie about their height honestly and most here don’t. Many honest posters are here that assess based on comparison (contemporaries and facts) not biase
Rory said on 13/Feb/18

Well how is it then that if I think he was 6ft3.5-3,75 that makes me his fanboy ? In one of your posts you claimed I'd endorsed Clint for president and I idolised him etc which was nonsense so I'm just playing you at your own game really. If I'm a Clint sycophant than you're a bitter enemy of his contrived with jealousy...both ridiculous but you started it lol. My position has more merit anyway as I've provided examples and you haven't so yours is the more questionable.

If you're talking about Clints height most people don't agree with you ; see his retained 6tt3.75 listing and 6ft3.4 average guess after 159 votes.
Jordan87 said on 13/Feb/18
@ Rory,

You asked, I brought. Bad Idea on your part.

George Kennedy 6'4 ( Likely Even Shorter here, he is old) Has CLint by easily 1.5".

Your Boy wasn't 6'4"., Not even a Solid 6'3.

I'm glad you Urged me to go back to Clint's Heyday and grab a good pick of him.
alberto14 said on 13/Feb/18
6'3 could be ok but I can't go over. This listing is 3.75 too much for him not even right after bed
Dave 180cn said on 13/Feb/18
Also he was a similar height only a fraction shorter than 6ft3.5 Chevy Chase in the mid 80s,and in that pic he is slouching a bit and Chase is standing with his head up to his full height,almost as if he is measuring himself next to Clint and is aware that Clint may look taller than him.That's just an observation of that pic from myself.
Dave 180cn said on 12/Feb/18
It's hard to guess his current height because of his old man posture,but if he can look 5ft11 it probably means at full stretch he mat still be 6ft
Dave 180cn said on 12/Feb/18
Watch rawhide episode on YouTube called Hostage child,Clint is in a scene with 6ft1.5 James Coburn and looks an easy 6ft3 in comparison. Also in that pic with Morgan Freeman from 93 Clint looks taller than Freeman too me.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 12/Feb/18
If i'm really looking back at 1950s, Clint did look this mark.
Jordan87 said on 12/Feb/18
@ Rory,

If you looked at my past Post, I mention the Man Is A great actor and a Great DIrector. How is it that if we think he is 6'2.5, we are jealous of how handsome he is? At 6'2.5 he is still a good deal taller than Most of us here, likely better looking as well. He would be that if he was 6'2.5" or 6'4" so as usual you are making no sense.

So We don't not agree with your assessment of your Idol's Height so we are all bad looking, jealous people. Would love to see what you look like.

It's nice to know most here seem to agree with me However.
alberto14 said on 12/Feb/18
In Every Wich Way But loose looks you can see he is 187-188 cm he was about 50 years old. Impossible he ever be 191 or 192 cm. More 189 range in his 20's
alberto14 said on 12/Feb/18
I say 6'3 in his 20's but not a strong 6'3. more 6'2,75 189 190 cm at lunch
Rory said on 12/Feb/18
Well the bottom line is if posters are going to keep blurting out the old platitudes of "he was 6ft2.5 Max" or w,e without evidence..I repeat without evidence, then why do they do it, what informs their position ?
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 11/Feb/18

Sorry but the only sad one here is you. Just because some people see Clint as 6’2” or 6’2.5” peak, doesn’t mean they’re jealous of him or wanna make themselves feel better. They’re entitled to their own opinions. Now I don’t agree with them that he was that short at peak, I think 6’3” or 6’3.25”. But there’s nothing more I hate in this site when people associate estimating celebs taller or shorter with “liking” or “disliking” them. A poster estimating Clint as 6’2” doesn’t necessarily make them a hater, neither does a poster estimating him as 6’5” necessarily make them a fan.
Dave180cm said on 10/Feb/18
Clint was a solid 6ft3 peak,190.05cm.
AlexanderVon said on 10/Feb/18
To Rory :
Your argument is absurd. Firt of all Clint Eastwood is the man and I'always loved him. I'm here to debate his height and I'm serious and honest. Jealous? Come on.. Maybe you say this because you feel it.. I'm 6 foot and If I could choose to be taller I wouldn't so I think I have the perfect height over 183 cm is not atractive and I'm lucky I'm a fitness hell athletic genetics. I'm here to talk about his height . I say it again he was 6'2.5 at best
Rory said on 10/Feb/18
I sadly think a lot of the downgraders are motivated by jealousy. They recognise they'll never be as successful,handsome or as tall as a young Clint Eastwood so they have to try and detract from him in some pathetic way like calling him shorter than he was to make themselves feel better. Sad really but why else would someone be adamant a guy was a certain height without a shred of evidence to back it up on their side other than some warped ideology. That's kinder than calling them trolls which is less charitable. Don't worry, you're all beautiful for who you are !
jervis said on 9/Feb/18
The pic with Wittaker,thats the black and white one picked by jordan 87,to prove Clint was, aged 58,less than 6ft2,has a flaw,that is you cant see their feet.In 90% of the rest of the pics Clint is taller by a good inch.
AlexanderVon said on 9/Feb/18
To Rory:
I just read all and you are funny..
Jordan87 is righ. I agree he was about 6'2.5 in the 50's. Saying he was 6'3.5 at least is out from this world. Please be serious he even never was 6'3, I can go with 6'2.5 with luck. In th metric system I also say he was 188 189 range. You should learn before talking what's a correct height view..
Rory said on 9/Feb/18
@Jordan87 ...I think although it's quite hard to tell I saw enough in the scenes at the end of Kelly's heroes to say Clint might have edged Donald Sutherland, if not they're extremely close in which case anyone calling Clint 188-189 is also calling Donald 188-189.

Lol I could never explain him looking 6ft6 ? Yes and you've been so successful at providing evidence he was 6ft2.5 haven't you (not). On a serious note you haven't come up with anything at all, I asked for examples of Clint looking under 6ft3 in the 1950s/60s/70s and you gave me the late 1980s...I'm not interested in your theories on his shrinkage thank you, I'm interested in what he looked in his youth. Then of course when you did reference pictures they were anything but some pictures Whittaker edged him and then in many others Clint looked taller, ambiguous at best. Then you mentioned Morgan Freeman being taller but if you watched Unforgiven you'd know Freeman certainty wasn't taller so as for evidence ? I think not. For the record by the late 1980s I think he was 6ft2.75/6ft3 and had shrunk 0.75 inches from his peak.

6ft3.5 in the 1950s/1960s and 6ft3.25 by the early 1970s. You can see he really was starting too get get hunched in posture. Maybe spent too much time lifting heavy weights when that film that film was made.

I think he probably looked his most towering and lanky in the 1950s because he was skinnier in those days.

If we spend more time focusing on a 1950s clint instead of how tall he looked in the 70s we might change our opinions on clints peak height.

@ Rory,

I brought you evidence he was under 6'2 in the Late 80's. You think he shrank 2" by that point? Really? His late 50's. I don't.

I have always said he looked 189 range when he wore a cowboy hat in tbe dollers trilogy

Yeah I'm not sure where people get the idea that Clint was taller than Donald Sutherland. In Kelly's Heroes there aren't really any good shots to compare them. In Space Cowboys Sutherland looks a couple of inches taller than Clint although as someone has posted press photos around the same time show them much closer in height. I guess they were very close in height in reality. At one point I believed the Clint was 6'2'' posters as his height loss was so great. Tim Robbins towered over him in photos. However this would not explain for why he was 2 inches taller than James Coburn. It's weird because it's easier to believe Clint was the same height as Chevy Chase say but hard to believe Clint was as tall as Tom Selleck. However Chevy Chase and Tom Selleck were on a chat show together and looked very close in height. There is a link for that on this site somewhere. In reality if you look around you will see guys that are 6'4'' to 6'6'' say every day. So the idea that some film stars are very tall isn't absurd.
Jordan87 said on 7/Feb/18
@ Dream,

I always thought Donald Looked close to an inch taller than Clint, I have to check again. Sutherland is 6'3.5" from what I know in his youth.

@ Rory,

"t's also a bit silly just to pump out these guesses of 6ft2.5 or w,e without anything to justify them otherwise I might as well just say he was 6ft6 and refuse to explain why, it just wouldn't help"

It wouldn't make sense b/c he never looked 6'6 and you could never explain that, while ON THE OTHER HAND He looks shorter than 6'2 Guys Like Whitaker and Freeman when he was only 58 years old. He also Looks under 6 feet now so there is certainly an argument that he was never 6'4. Great Guy, Great Actor, Even better director.....but not as tall as he claimed....which is very typical.
Rory said on 7/Feb/18
@Jordan, you're making progress by citing examples with names but at least make them plausible. 1. Have you seen Unforgiven ? If you have you'd know that Clint actually edged Morgan Freeman who was 188-189cm back then, so bang goes that theory..2. I've never seen Bird with Clint and Forest Whittaker but actually looking at them together more often than not Clint looks taller ! 3. I said bring me examples of Clint looking under 6ft3 in the 1960s and 1970s...not the early 90s or late 80s.
Mr5'11 said on 7/Feb/18
I have watched hundreds of times the 'Dollars' Trilogy. I love them and Clint was in his 30's I can not buy even 6'4 in boots for him looks 189 range en those movies 6'2.5
Mr5'11 said on 7/Feb/18
As I said people lives with a wrong perception of a real height measurement. Clint was never over 6'2.75 in his life. 6'2.75 hit in his best day prime
Dream(5'9.5 said on 7/Feb/18
Just because he looks a range, doesn't mean he is literally that range.

Clint Eastwood has constantly looked taller than 6'3" at his peak, especially in the 'Dollars' Trilogy. He also edged out peak Donald Sutherland in most scenes in other movies.

6'3.5" is lowest I would argue for a peak Clint Eastwood. This listing works too, even if it's briefly that height.

1988 at age 58 Clint was 3/4" SHorter than 6'2 Listed FOrest Whitaker. But I know we are supposed to think by age 58 Clint lost 2.5" already, right? Dream on.

Clint in 1993 was 6'1.5ish, easily 1/2" Inch shorter than 6'2 Listed Morgan Freeman also pictured. He was 63 years old then. He didn't lose 2.5" by age 63. HE was likely around an inch taller, maybe a tad more than this in his prime, 6'2.75 ish.

He didn't lose 2" or more by age 63, that's ridiculous.
Rory said on 6/Feb/18
It's his lower back where he's lost most of the height, there's pictures of him out there where you can clearly see the lower half of his spine has bent. It's quite obvious he's lost a lot of height by how long his legs are now in comparison to his torso, a dead give away. Lol well we can review dead people's height luckily because if they were alive and making films in the past we can thanks to technology watch those films. I think it's an odd way to judge someone's height by how much they have lost anyway, might be an idea to look at him in his 30s rather than looking at him today and guessing how much he might have lost from that time. Anecdotal evidence about your dads height is irrelevant. Forget what he looks like today(even though I would strongly dispute he'd measure as low as 5ft11 today), look at him in the 1960s and 1970s. The lowest I think anyone could sensibly argue for Clint is 6ft3.25, I've never seen anything to tell me he'd be below that.

It's also a bit silly just to pump out these guesses of 6ft2.5 or w,e without anything to justify them otherwise I might as well just say he was 6ft6 and refuse to explain why, it just wouldn't help.
Mr5'11 said on 6/Feb/18
Yep. He looks so good at 88 y.o and sure he doesn't seem he lost 4 inches, max 3. He is over 5'11 today. 5'11 is to low. As Rob say he maybe look 5'11 but
if he can still stretch up for a measurement he could hit 5'11.5 or maybe 5'11.75 who knows.. But it's obvious he was never over 6'2.75 early measurement could be .75-6'3 6'2.25 .5 evening peak height
Jordan87 said on 6/Feb/18
@ Rory,

Also keep in mind he is likely not even 5'11.5" Nowadays, more 5'11.
Jordan87 said on 6/Feb/18
@ Rory,

I'm sure this is possible to happen but Mr. Eastwood maintains good posture and doesn't look like your average 80+ year old, he DOES NOT HUNCH. 6'2 is too low for him, 6'2-1/2" to 6'3 I would guess is the range.

Again think of all the BS celebs claim and their height, and then when Rob gets pictures with them, their claims get smashed. In my experience 9/10 men lie about their height, and or are misinformed.

The people he was next to in his prime are most likely dead ( Just a guess) so we cannot confirm their height, and all we can go by is his current height which is certainly Sub 6'0.

The chances of a 5'11 guy at 88 being 6'3-1/2" in his prime are very low my freind. IMpossible? No......but I would be shocked. I have seen my 6'5 uncle who is 67 years old Shrink to 6'4-1/4. I have see my 5'11- 5/8" Father ( Huge Eastwood fan, annoyingly so) shrink to 5'11 by age 64. A 3.5" Height loss is super Rare unless you are Dave prowse or Hulk Hogan, both of whom abused their body ( Hogan) and have had tons of Surgeries ( Prowse).
Big O said on 6/Feb/18
View the Jimmy Kimmel show today 2-5-2017, and I was surprised to see Clint Eastwood standing next to Jimmy and being smaller than Jimmy who is 5’11” tall. For 88 years losing height is the norm due to the vertebrae compressing.
Jordan87 said on 5/Feb/18
@ Mr.5'11",

Shrinking 2.75-3" I could see, and that is even at the very high end. I do think he is around 5'11-5'11.5" nowadays, and lost around 3" so again I am with you on the 6'2-1/2". Maybe he was close to , or " about" 6'3" in the am hrs, but Losing over 3" is doubtful.

Most men lose about 1-1/4" by age 80, what did CLint do to screw himself to Shrink 3"?
Rory said on 5/Feb/18
Peak 192cm, 182cm today. I don't think losing 4 inches by aged 88 nearly is all that rare. More than average ? Yes..Unique ? No. I see lots of elderly men out completely hunched over where it doesn't take a genius to work out they've lost a lot of height. The problem is really no one has ever come up with a reason why they think Clint was 6ft2, it feels like if they just keep saying Clint was 6ft2 over and over and using absurd reasons why then they'll convince themselves and others eventually that it's true. Remember if Clint was 6ft2 then James Brolin was 6ft1.5,Jeff Bridges was 6 foot,Hal Holbrook was 5ft11,Ali was 6ft1 and the list goes on and on...I think eventually you have to reach the point surely where you say okay did all these different actors lie about their height and did everyone who estimated their height get it wrong or maybe just maybe my pitifully low guess for Clint Eastwood a bit out...
Danimal said on 5/Feb/18
I can't believe you still have him listed at 6'0". He's almost 90 now and several 6'0" guys are taller than him today.

He can look 5ft 11...but it becomes harder to tell if he can still stretch up for a measurement.
Mr5'11 said on 5/Feb/18
My guesses are:
Nowdays 181 to 181'5 cm 5'11'5
Peak in his 20's: 188-189 cm 6'2.25-6'2.5
Jordan87 said on 5/Feb/18
@ Rory,

Your bringing up Average guesses ? Yeah the average guess also places him at Sub 6 feet currently and I'll be honestly yes he could have shrunk all the inches you claim, but I find it unlikely as most men do not, despite how tall they were initially.

Don't worry about what Rob lists him at, the whole point of the site is to debate these kind of things.

It's not blindingly obvious as you have no way to prove the heights of these so called people he stood next to. Men have been inflating their height, and it's on average of over and inch.

Whats is obvious though is that you Seem to think he lost a Minimum of 4" of height, which again would be very rare my friend.

Rob look at these pics. I think are very clear photos to guess Clint peak height:
As you can see Bradley Cooper is listed 184 cm or 6'0.25. Watch proportions on both, lenght, hips, Clint hips are higher proof he was taller than him, but 9 cm taller Rob? 3 inches? To be honest looked he could be nearly de 6'3 mark. Do you think nect to him could tower him by 9 cm?

1 inch understimate is pretty usual and more being Clint Eastwood. As you can see he has a slim figure
Rory said on 4/Feb/18
@Mr 5'11, look I respect you and your opinion but it's all bluster, you've got nothing of any substance. I don't care how tall your cousin is I don't care what you think about David Hasselhoffs height the person in question is Clint Eastwood and all you've got is my eyes tell me he isn't 6ft4..the funny thing is you can't even make up your own mind, in the space of two posts you've called him 6ft2 then you said he looked 6ft2.5 then you've said 6ft2.25,before you were holding up his 6ft3 claim(which wasn't a claim but a description but hey)as being proof he was under it, then you later say claims can never be trusted when Clint claimed 6ft4 because it didn't suit you, I just can't really take any of it seriously, incoherent,illogical and emotional. Must do better.

Rob I congratulat you for this site. I find it unique and original and I now takes time and years working on it. I say mayority of the listing are fair and 100% match but I think Clint Eastwood and Arnold Schwarzenegger being both sho popular and visited celebs are a bit upgraded. In my opinion both are one of the most upgraded heights. I suggest a downgrade. Agree?
Editor Rob
I don't think I have seen enough to say 6ft 3 for Clint's peak is likely, but I certainly think 6ft 3.5 could be closer to the truth.

How many actors we all know they add 2 inches to their heights? Your are just very naive. Average add 1 inch to their claim at least. With luck Clint was 6'4 with cowboy boots in his prime
Mr5'11 said on 3/Feb/18
To Rory:

It's obvious you don't have idea how tall is a legit 6'3- 6'4 guy. My cousin is a legit 6'3.5 barefoot and he looked much taller than Clint could be. Your excuse all the time is : "give me the names of people who stood next to Clint in his 30s/40s". 1) Eyes never lie. 2) Not necessary to see 6'4 guys next to him but separate I can give you names: Dolph Lundgren. David Hasselhoff. Liam, These guys were legit 6'3.75/6'4 guys and it's obvious they were taller than him. Their proportions are of weak 6'4 guys. and of course they looked taller than Clint was in his youth. They look more than an inch on Clint's peak height. Clint was maybe 6'3 in his best day after bed. 6'2.25/.5 evening peak day. How tall are you 5'7? I'm 5'11 I know how tall is a 6'3 and 6'4 man. My cousin at 42 years old being 6'3.5 looks much taller than Clint was in is prime, and dont say is a joke he never stood next to him. Yes don't lie Clint always looked 6'2 in his movies 6'2.5 in his 30's. He shrunk mas 3 inches. Stop excusing him. Taller guys than him has a less shrunk.
Rory said on 2/Feb/18
I'm not trying anything now you're the one who cannot give me the names of people who stood next to Clint in his 30s/40s who made him look sub 6ft3..that alone renders your opinion obsolete I'm afraid as much as I like you. Remember the average shrinkage for men aged 90 is 3 inches, Clint in his prime certainly wasn't just average height so that makes him susceptible to even more height loss. Did he say he was 6ft3 or was he described at 6ft3 aged 58 by a journalist ? That's right, he was described as 6ft3, thst wasn't his claim. His claim was 6ft4 on a racquet ball website. It's blindingly obvious the guy was 6ft3.5-75 range in his youth, but don't take my word for it take Robs who lists him at 6ft3.75 and guesses height for a living, or look at the average guess for him at inch more than you're own. Think long and hard.
Mr5'11 said on 2/Feb/18
Full agree Jordan,

It's obvious and eyes don't lie. The problem is how people live their entire lifes with a wrong perception of a real height. They always tend to upgrade height. As I said I'm an honest 5'11 guy and I say it because my height at 3 pm is 5'11 barefoot and on medical checks I have measured 5'11 since I was 20 years old. People say I'm 6 foot and in one ocassion guess my height close to 6'1 lol lol. Maybe because I'm also a slim guy but athletic.
Jordan87 said on 2/Feb/18

Prowse had multiple surgeries that attributed to his height loss, CLint has not had those surgeries my friend. I know you are trying anything now. Prowse is a rare example, I know you want CLint to be that same Example but here is a Fact for you. David Prowse and CLint are two different people.

How is Shrinking 2"-3" Minimal? 4" Height loss is extremely rare. The Man stood out in rooms, he is taller and and better shape than most men even for his age, but this does not mean he was 6'4. 6'2.5 Men would tower above rooms full of people. He also said he was 6'3, you think he downgraded himself? C'mon now.
Rory said on 1/Feb/18
@Jordan87, so you think instead of your guesses being off you've now decided that the reason he looked 6ft2 was because everyone he ever acted with lied about their height or their height has been misjudged by everyone ? Come on...who even decided that he's 5ft11 today ? I think he can still look about 6ft with Cooper,Washington,Hanks,Buble etc. Just remember Rob has met a guy called David Prowse who was once 6ft6 and is now barely 6ft1 so your theory about people only shrinking a miminimal amount even into their elderly years is debunked.

@Mr5'11, he claimed both 6ft3 and 6ft4, which means anywhere in 6ft3-4 range is arguable. Very possible he was 6ft3.5 and in one interview dropped the fraction and just went with 6ft3. You say he looked 188 in the good the bad and the ugly, but next to who ? Name the actor who he stood next to and only looked 6ft2 in comparison ? I think what you do is you look at his body profile and think he sort of looks 6ft2 maybe so Yh ill call him 6ft2 without really looking into it at all.
Mr5'11 said on 1/Feb/18

Again don't waste your time. I agree you. I also think Clint was bang at 6'2.5 always looked strong 6'2. Of course this reality changes all: Lee Van Cleef was a strong 6'1, Gene Hackman 6'1.25. Ben Affleck 6'1.75. Dicaprio is bang at 5'10.5 nowdays peak maybe 5'10.75.

So you think he Shrunk 4 to 5"? Ok those 1960's pictures you speak of, you must have proved the heights of the people he was standing next to?

Do you even read or listen ?
Another proof. Clint himself claimed in 1988 his height at 6'3. Do you think he was going to claim his current height? No! At 58 old every man always claim his prime height. 6'3 bang. So 6'3 is the highest mark I could argue. Eyes don't lie He looked always 188 range in the 60's The good The bad and The ugly
Rory said on 31/Jan/18
I love the way im painted as having this Clint cult and being too blinkered to see he was shorter than he was when I'm the only one whose actually used evidence. Look it up in the dictionary, it's very good. I've made a list going back several posts of instances where Clint in his prime looked 6ft3+ whereas people like Jordan and Mr5'11 haven't once come up with any examples of where a peak 1960s/70s Eastwood looked 6ft2 range Other than saying something along the lines of because I say so...

@ Rory,

2" ? OK He is 5'11 Now. If he was 6'3" you think he shrunk 4"? I do not think its that high. I think it's around 3" ( And that's very rare), therefore my point he wasn't 6'4 or even 6'3".

If you think CLint was 6'4 that would mean your Hero Shrunk 5" which we all know the chances of that are slimmer than you actually throwing away your CLint Movies.

Don't waste your time telling all this to Rory. He just doesn't understand and doesn't want to listen. It's waste of time. If he want to believe he was 6'4 good for him. We know he was a strong 6'2 guy who has a taller a appearance because his slim body with hus long legs, He was 6'2.5 max. 80% guess him at 6'3 minimum because he can look, but strong 6'3 guys were a bit taller and 6'4 almost tower him. Pople here understimate a good inch not only with actors even on themselves. I'm 5'11 and everyone says I'm 6 foot at least lol

@Jordan 87.. So you think then there's an unwritten law in human biology that a man can only shrink 2 inches and even if he's hit by a train or falls from an aircraft he can't shrink below that ? Interesting, do you think the earth is flat btw just out of interest ? Moon made out of cheese ?

Why is his son, Scott Eastwood shorter than his dad? Is his mother short? I know a friend whose background is Scots/English, her father stands 6'5 while the mother is 5'0. She has an average height of 5'6 and her brother is only 5'9. Is that strange genetics or what?

Rob it's known in a 1988 article it mentioned his height at 6ft 3. At that time he was 58 years old and every man at that age or when is getting older always or usually claim his peak height. It would not make sense to claim a current old man height. When I ask my Dad or uncle their heights they claim his peak height and they are 60-70 years old. He once claimed 6'4 in one ocassion I think was exaggerated. So 6'3 at 58 still young I believe was his height he remember on his peak. I really believe 6'3 is the highest I'd try to argue. Remember 6'3 is over 190 cm is beteween 190 and 191 cm and a man being that tall barefoot is really tall. Imagine him now on his cowboy boots. Everyone would guess he was 6'3.5 minimum. See? I think this story makes sense

Wow My Man, Sorry I insulted your Idol. If Clint is going to any conventions or anything I think he should stay clear of you , seeing as you sound a Bit protective. Sorry I haven't seen the actual Movie With Liam and CLint in it ( I'm sure you have seen it many times, b/c you know, Your man Clint is in it ).

OK, Jackman is leaning in on the picture I posted, check it out again Ace. You Straighten Jackman up and he has Clint by 2.5" so go cry about that, Boo Hoo , Boo Hoo.

As Far as Shrinking, why do you seem to think CLint Lost more than 2.5"? I mean beside the fact that, you have an Obsession and all. Losing more than 3" of Height is not the case, I know you want it to be, b/c again, you know....its Clint by Sorry, CLint wasn't over 6'2.5". I know, I know, I must be anti-American for that Statement.

Sorry ROry, I will make you feel better now by saying " Clint for President". lol.....Go watch some Spaghetti Westerns and stifle you aggression. FYI, CLint doesn't know you exist....I Know, take a few moments to process that.

@Jordan87, if you watch the actual scene in The Dead Pool, Neeson looks maybe an inch taller Eastwood not nearly 2 inches in my opinion. I'd admit those still don't really capture that.

he could not have shrunk 4 inches guys . be reasonable
Rory said on 25/Jan/18
@Jordan87 what on earth are you talking about ? Firstly he only looks 1.5 inches shorter than Jackman there, seeing as you don't seem to have much knowledge in the field I'll doesn't count as height and Jackman has a tall quiff there. Most he could have shrunk is 2.5 inches...really ? Is that a law is it or a scientific fact that humans will never lose more than 2.5 inches ? If it is I've never heard of it ! Finally a 58 year old Clint only looked 1-1.5 inches shorter than Neeson, you can verify that yourself by watching the film. What that means is a 58 year old Clint was say 6ft2.75-6ft3, probably 0.75 inches shorter than in his 30s. Look some guys just aren't good at guessing height, maybe you're good at chess though..
Jordan87 said on 24/Jan/18

At 58 Years old he was already around 2.25" SHorter the 6'4 TOPS Neeson. He was 6'1.75 by age 58. He somehow shrunk 2" by age 58? Nope He was maybe around 3/4 " taller in his prime then he was in his late 50's at 6'1.75. ( Average man loses no more than 1/2" by 60)

Clint was maybe around 6'2-1/2 tops.
Jordan87 said on 24/Jan/18
He looks around 5'11 nowadays as he was a bit over 2" shorter than 6'1.5 Jackman.

Click Here

Again, 5'11.25 with Jackman in his mid 80's. MAX he could have shrunk is around 2.5" ( Average guy looses around 4 cm by their 80's) so not sure where the 6'4 comes. You guys think he lost 4 to 5" of height? Really? Id say 2.5 Max. He was around 6'2 in his prime.
Rory said on 22/Jan/18
Yh but he was only wearing cowboy boots in his westerns where every other actor would have been wearing them too. So I don't really think that makes much of an impact. It's not like he was wearing them in play misty for me or anything. As for his hair I don't really think it was that thick he didn't have a big Afro he just generally had medium length hair, nothing out of the ordinary. A solid 6ft4 peak is too much, but it's not ridiculous, it's a near on certainty he would have cleared 6ft4 out of bed anyway and fallen somewhere between 6ft3-4.

Cowboy boots and hair may well have made him look taller at times.
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 19/Jan/18
He’d have dipped to 5’11” now.
JonathanRet said on 19/Jan/18
whatever but 6'3.25 is far from the 6'3.75 listing. 6'3.75-6'4 was Dolph Lundgren 1 icnh taller than Clint Eastwood. I know I have not seen them together but you can clearly see Doph was taller than him
Rory said on 19/Jan/18
His shrinkage actually isn't anything remarkable. Robs said before that on average for a 90 year old 3 inch loss would be incurred, Clints nearly 88 and considering his height was considerably above average that makes him more likely to lose a greater amount. So we're talking about him losing 1 inch more than expected really which isn't that unique.
JonathanRet said on 18/Jan/18
Rob it's known in a 1988 article it mentioned his height at 6ft 3. At that time he was 58 years old and every man at that age or when is getting older always or usually claim his peak height. It would not make sense to claim a current old man height. When I ask my Dad or uncle their heights they claim his peak height and they are 60-70 years old. He once claimed 6'4 in one ocassion I think was exaggerated. So 6'3 at 58 still young I believe was his height he remember on his peak. I really believe 6'3 is the highest I'd try to argue. Remember 6'3 is over 190 cm is beteween 190 and 191 cm and a man being that tall barefoot is really tall. Imagine him now on his cowboy boots. Everyone would guess he was 6'3.5 minimum. See? I think this story makes sense
5'10 lad said on 18/Jan/18
I think Clint gets downgraded a lot at his peak possibly because people struggle to believe his shrinkage. He was never 6’2 range peak as people say, but I honestly think more 6’3.5 than .75. Why has he shrunk so much Rob? Surely that’s above average for his age?
Rory said on 18/Jan/18
People who guess him at under 6ft3 I just find quite find strange people. They're adamant he's 189 and yet they cannot provide one shred of evidence that he was that low yet still punt out lines repeatedly that he was like 6ft2 or some rubbish. I don't even think a flat 6ft3 is arguable really, I'd start the bidding for Clint at 6ft3.25 with 6ft4 at most.
Samwells said on 17/Jan/18
What do you think Rob I think he is right Clint always looked 189 range in his 20's. His slim figure and boots makes him a bit over 1 inch taller
RichardSpain said on 26/Jun/17
Eastwood wasn't 192cm ! it's a joke! marketing! Eastwood was 192 cm with his boots. I think Eastwood was a solid 189cm max 190 cm younger. In this way we can understand why Eastwood is around 183cm nowadays crearly because he lost only 6 or 7 cm of his pic that's credible.
Morgan had similar height than Clint Eastwood. 189 /190cm in peak.
Morgan has good genetics. Nowadays still has good height and he is an old man.
Eastwood, Freeman and Affleck have very similar heights in his peaks. range 189/190cm
Editor Rob
The lowest I'd probably try to argue is 6ft 3...I can see how people would give him that, although most seem to estimate him somewhere between the 6ft 3 and 4.

Ferry said on 16/Jan/18
Nice. I'm watching "For a few dollars more", what a great movie and music. Yes Clint was
190/191 cm , Lee Van Cleef weak 186. Why people add both a couple of cm , 1 inch?
Ferry said on 16/Jan/18
Just watching spaghetti western where Clint was in his 30's he looks a classic 190 cm guy 193'5 on his cowboy boots
Rory said on 16/Jan/18
I disagree with that. I think towards the end of the film where Sutherland,Eastwood and Savalas are walking side by side towards the tank Eastwood seems a bit taller to me. I concede though that because of the uneven cobbled road and with them not being that close together it makes it difficult to be sure.
movieguy said on 15/Jan/18
Eastwood doesn't look taller than Sutherland in Kelly's Heroes. I believe if anything Sutherland edges Clint it's really difficult to tell though. Can I ask Rob why the site now asks for an email address when you post?
Rory said on 13/Jan/18
No can do. I think watching Kelly's heroes there's enough in that film to say Eastwood was taller than Sutherland and so if Eastwood was 6ft2-3 range that would make Sutherland 6ft2 peak which is too low. I was beggining to think maybe Eastwood was 6ft3.5 but I've swung back now and think a weak 6ft4 range is the best fit.
Paul said on 11/Jan/18

I agree Dawson Clint was never more than 6'2.5.
To Rory you don't have to see them together to compare heights. Lundgren was at least 1'5 inch on Clint peak
3.5 guess is a joke makes a 4.5 on shoes. He always looked 6'4 on his boots. 2.5 is the best guess
Anonymous said on 9/Jan/18
Rob how did he lose so much of height
Editor Rob
reaching 87 is a factor in a considerable loss. For a man of his height, you'd expect near 3 inches on average by late 80's...

Clint, though, is not your average man - he's worked in films and directed many right up to his 80's. Maybe he put his body through more efforts than the average worker would?
jervis said on 9/Jan/18
In the 1960s and 70s Ali looked a solid 6ft2 too me,and if Murray measured. 2 of an inch less than that,I don't find that so hard too believe myself.Fair play too Murray being so honest,but that dose not automatically mean that everybody else is inflating their heights.Also on the subject of Lundgren,recent pics of him with Hasslehoff and Conan where he is looking barely 6ft3 prove that if you believe he was 6ft4 peak,you are accepting he has lost what looks like 1 full inch in height in his 50s,just like Clint had by that age alongside. Neeson in the dead pool.
Dawson said on 8/Jan/18
Any mark over 6'2.75 for his peak does not make sense. In Europe he always was described at 188 cm and 190 cm american actor. Articles, newspaper, news, documents. 190 cm is 6'2.75. You're saying 192 cm that's crazy. The most he could hit in his best day is 190 cm in the 1950's
Dawson said on 8/Jan/18
Rob I can tell you are wrong thinking his lowest 3.5. He never hit 6'3 maybe at morning
mister_lennon said on 8/Jan/18
6'1 fpor peak ali is comical. he was a clear and strong 6'2 guy at peak.and if Clint was onlly 6'2 at peak explain to me how on hell a cllint in his 60s was about 1 inch than peak jim carrey, who was a strong 6'1/almost 6'2 guy at peak???

let me guess, carrey was only 6 at peak, you know.
jervis said on 8/Jan/18
Ali was a bit taller than Murray if Murray is 6ft1.5,because Ali was 6ft2 and I have never seen a pic of the young Lundgren next to the young Clint so I can 't say how much height there would be between them.
Rory said on 8/Jan/18
Dolph lundgren had two inches on a young Clint did he...hmm remind me when they appeared in a film together ? Is that the best you've all got for downgrading Clint because Andy Murray is 6ft2 and you imagine that Dolphins Lundgren would be taller than him and some weird height science theory about people with an ego always inflating their height by an inch ? No that's not cutting it I'm afraid, try harder, look for something called hard evidence. Robs right it's unlikely he was under 6ft3.5, I saw The enforcer the other day and he looked very tall to me in that..Tyne Daly in heels came up to his chin.
Dawson said on 7/Jan/18
Ali has been listed 6'2 many times and himself has also claimed 6'2 but knowing his temperament I believe he could increased his claim. Yes I agree he had an inflated ego so maybe he was a strong 6'1. What we know is he was somewhere 6'1 to 6'2 but in my opinion he was 6'1'25. A guy with a big ego would increase his height and being honest he always looked 6'1-25- 6'1.5 range. Clint was 1 inch taller not 2 so 6'3 is the very maximum height Clint could hit. I say he was 6'2.5 in his prime
Heightlover said on 7/Jan/18
jervis said on 6/Jan/18
Ali has the same height and bodytype Tsonga tennis player listed 187 cm or (weak 6'2). I gotta tell you tennis players usually are listed 1 inch over their real heights. Andy Murray has claimed he is 6'1.8 and he is listed 6'3. Are you saying Ali was taller than Murray? You would never thought Murray is 6'1.8.
Everyone thinks Muray is at least 6'2 and 6'3. Same happens with Clint Eastwood. He was a strong 6'2 guy no more
Heightlover said on 7/Jan/18
Dolph Lundgren has nearly 2 inches on a young Clint. Clint was never even 190 cm he was 188cm
Heightlover said on 7/Jan/18
Rob Clint just 1 cm shorter than Dolph Lundgren? Dolph Lundgren has claimed 193 cm at 20 and in the 90's. He claimed 193 and 194 cm.
This listing is not fair for legit 6'3'75 guys. Please Rob downgrade him.
Rory said on 7/Jan/18
Rob, in light of his 6ft4 claim and 6ft3 description with an average user guess of 6ft3.4, do you think 6ft3.5 peak might be the closest ?
Editor Rob
6ft 3.5 peak might be the lowest I'd give him.
Mister lennon said on 7/Jan/18
Ali as a 6'1 is a joke. Please, this is absurd.

Ali was a strong 6'2 peak and clint a strong 6'3 peak.
Rory said on 6/Jan/18
Ali 186cm ? Right now maybe explain why Ali in his fifties and suffering from Parkinson's still looked taller than 186 Holyfield who Rob has met ? Good luck with that...Ali was 6ft2 bare minimum but anywhere in 6ft2-3 range is arguable for him, and it's undeniable that Clint was taller than him because Clnt was 6ft3.5 peak.
Rory said on 6/Jan/18
In the real world if Clint was only 188cm peak then by The dead pool in 1988 when Clint was 58 he would have been 187 Liam Neeson looked about 3cm maybe 4cms taller than Clint in that film which means Neeson was what like 190 or 191 peak ? Lol...
jervis said on 6/Jan/18
Reducing a solid 6ft2 Guy like Ali by an inch just too suit you argument,that Clint was 6ft2 peak,is IMO a very weak argument.Clint was a very solid 6ft3 peak and there is plenty of proof of that,and Ali was 6ft2 not 6ft1.
movieguy said on 6/Jan/18
jervis, just looked at Space Cowboys pics and they are close in height. To my eyes surprising thing is how small James Garner looks in comparison. Like about 4 inches shorter than either Eastwood or Sutherland. Garner is usually given as about 6'2'' and apparently claimed he was at one time 6'3'', the quote is on his page. I know he had health issues and injuries but if anything lost more height than Clint.
Rory said on 6/Jan/18
6ft2 peak is a comically bad guess. Just give up I'd say as you're useless ! 6ft3 bare minimum. Once again not one downgrader has any proof...
Waxer said on 5/Jan/18
He was never over 188 cm. People are giving 3 cm more because they usually do it to their own height. I'm 179 cm and they always believe I'm 182 cm. People should learn please what is a correct height measurement. Looking at Clint I could maybe think he was 6'3 or over but the truth is he was never more than 188 cm 6'2.25 was his real measurement. Just add 1 inch as people ususally do and you will think he was minimum 6'3. Also his slim appearance helps. Ali was 186 cm max. Everyone are adding 1 inch to their heights. So sad...

Eastwood edged Sutherland back in Kelly's Heroes, sometimes by what could seem like an inch, but usually held better posture.

Rob I think you are a good guesser but I'm really impressed about this listing. How is this possible? Clint was never over 6'3 and you list him at 6'3.75. I believe Clint is the celeb. with the highest peak height far from reality. A downgrade this year woul be be fair
movieguy said on 4/Jan/18
In Space Cowboys Clint is not noticeably taller than Donald Sutherland. In fact it's the other way round, the medical exam scene I believe has Sutherland looking a few inches taller than Eastwood. I don't know who was taller prime it was very close but Eastwood has suffered more height loss than Sutherland.

The young Clint and James Coburn stand facing each other in an episode of Rawhide called Hostage Child.If Clint was ,as some people think,6ft2 that would make Coburn barely 6ft flat.Coburn always looked a solid 6ft1 too me Clint has a good 2 inches on him,once again it's a Solid 6ft3 peak for Clint.Also I could be wrong on Coburn's height he has been listed at 6ft2 and also 6ft1.5 here on celebheights,so 6ft1 is minimum for him.

Clint looks a bit taller than Ali but it's not a huge difference. Harve Presnell is the tallest of the three having about an inch on Eastwood. Harve is usually given as 6'4''. It's comical that Paint Your Wagon a film that I really like was a musical in which your 3 main stars Marvin, Eastwood and Seberg couldn't sing a note. Presnell had a great voice, his rendition of They Call the Wind Maria is incredible.

Sorry I mean 186 cm guy Ali (strong 6'1). He always had too much ego. I'm convince he exaggerate his height a bit. Clint was 1 inch on him but looks a bit more so he was skinny. Ali 186 cm range Clint 189 cm

Two inches on James Coburn. I can't see Coburn as a flat 6ft. Therefore I can't see Clint as being only 6'2'' prime. I think the consensus on this site is that Clint was between 6'3'' to 6'4'' maybe bang in the middle at 6'3.5''.

I think in that scene at the gun range I suspect Clint had about half inch less footwear. The rookies had boots on probably 1.25 inch style whilst Clint had about 0.75 inch sneakers from what I could see. Seeing as he looked an inch taller I think Clint at 6ft3.5 and Matheson/Urich at 6ft2 is fair.

movieguy said on 22/Dec/17
The problem with saying he was only 6'2'' is that he had a couple of inches on guys like James Coburn and Lee Marvin both of whom are usually listed about 6'2''. I agree it is hard to see Clint as being as tall as Jeff Goldblum or Tom Selleck say both of whom are almost certainly genuine 6'4'' guys.

Not denying your right but remember people can have a warped perception of what a true 6ft2 looks like in real life because guys who are 5ft11-6ft1 claim too be that tall.

My brother is 5ft11 barefoot and a lot of people view him too be tall. Some folk might think of 5ft11 as small or average because 5ft9 guys say there that tall.
James B said on 13/Dec/17

Unless you actually met a peak Clint in the flesh you can't say for certain that he was just 6ft3. Judging someone's height by photos or tv is not as accurate as seeing them in person I think.

@James B

You're right when you said a 6'2.5" guy actually taller than what it seems on paper. A true 6'2.5" is undermined in this world of inflation. I have a friend who's that height and is honest about it but gets often described as 6'4".
As for Clint, I'm not sure if he was that low at peak, I'm thinking 6'3" or at most 6'3.25" for him.
jervis said on 12/Dec/17
He didn't wear boots in the dirty Harry movies,in fact he mostly wore regular heeled shoes or even quite flat shoes when he wasn't staring in western's.Check out the interview with John Jumpers on YouTube,Clint towers him,it's one of the times where Clint looks the full 6ft4.Humphryes was in the 5ft8 or 5ft9 range.

Heightlover said on 12/Dec/17
So true but as you said.. if Clint peak height would had hit 6'4, I'm sure everyone, and I say everyone, would say he was minimum 6'5 at least. A guy like Eastwood and knowing how he look could pass as a 6'4 guy but the reality and real height he hit at best 6'2.5. but in my opinion he was a strong 6'2, which is very very tall and more at that time when most of people were a bit shorter . He was 6'2.25and 6'2.75 at morning. Put his boots and look at him with his bodytype. You all would say a strong 6'3 man walking with a magnum. Medical height: 6'2.25
James B said on 11/Dec/17
Heightlover- I know a guy who is 6'2.5 and people guess him too be 6'4/6'5. Like you said a genuine 6'2.5 is a lot taller than people would imagine.

All that said However if you met a peak Clint Eastwood in the flesh you might be shocked how tall he would look.

Yes because he was not even 6'3. He was 6'2.5 and you can not imagine how tall is a legit 6'2.5 barefoot of course. Being Eastwood more.. And being slim even more... Just add his boots and you will make a " weak looking 6'4 Eastwood"

Heightlover, you measure height from the top of someone's head mate, not based on how slim they are. I think you misspoke too because you said he never looked over 188-189 what you meant to say was he never looked as low as 188-189, which of course was the case because as anyone with any height perception at all knows Clint was over 6ft3. I suspect though your estimations of height are about as good as your ability to construct a sentence - seriously lacking.

Van Cleef actually starred in many great westerns including "Sabata", "Death Rides a Horse", "Day of Anger", "Vengeance" and "God's Gun" (although technically Leif Garrett was the main character in the last two).

As for Eastwood he was probably 6'3" as a young man, but not over that.

You are just blind
He never looked over 188-189 cm (6'2.5) You forgot his frame body bone and slim body type adding his boots? and cowboyboots. His real height was 189 cm tops. In a medical measurement he could not hit 6'3. 6'4 was Dolp Lundgren and you can not compare his height he was and always looked nearly 2 inches on Eastwood

Peak 190.5cm or 6ft3,the same height as 6ft3 Eric Fleming in rawhide.
Brad said on 5/Dec/17
6-4 easy peak. Watch Coogan's Bluff.

I don't think of him a particularly good man in his personal life (he seems an utter cad towards women/his politics are suspect) but even if he only did a handful of westerns, he is way more iconic and charismatic in a minimalist way than Nero, no offense to him, but Nero's strong silent characters too often come off as just dull. Van Cleef is great in westerns but is more of a character actor, his 2 best roles were co-starring with Eastwood! Also 6'2"-6'2.5" range is certainly undercutting him by at least a solid inch.

I also believe Clint was never over 6'3 in nis prime. Being lucky he hit 6'3.25 righ after bed at morning but in Rawhide looked 188-189 range which I think is 6'2.5. Over 6'2.5 barefoot I think just a few know how much is it. 6'2.5 is ver close 190 cm and a legit 190 cm man is really tall. Clint was the kind of man who pass as a 6'3.5 but I guess he was 6ft'2.5-75 if that

Man you are my idol: Full agree! People dont know what's a medical height measurement. Real heighs! 100% of actors lie about their heights.
Mr6footer said on 27/Nov/17
Hanks was 5'11 prime I'm tired why people always believe the classic actor claim" I'm 6. haha Yes right
Leo Dicaprio: I'm 6 Reality 5'10
Arnold: I was 6'2 Reality: 6'
Clint Eastwood I was 6'4 Reality: 6'2.5
Brad Pitt: I'm 5'11 Reality: 5'10
Why u all believe their claims?

Full agree!
Nice! some also believe he was 6'2.5 in his youth! Totally agree I also say he always looked taller because his slim figure. People don't really know how tall is 6'2.5 barefoot. Andy Murray has claimed his real height at 6'1.8 (187,5 cm) and you just can see how tall he looks. Clint looked maybe a fraction over him in his peak but 2 inches?? lol. Being Clint 6'2.5 changes all. Hackman 6'1.5 in his peak. Sean Connery was 6'1.5 . Everybody lies in his height and rounded up. You guys dont know what's a medical height measurement.
Rory said on 5/Dec/17
6'2.5 peak is just a bit of a silly guess really, other than with that Reni Santoni fella whose true height no one really knows Clint always looked 6ft3 bare minimum in the 60s-70s. 6'2.5 is not a legitimate guess frankly, it's nonsensical.
Richard said on 4/Dec/17
Eastwood was never more than 6'3". I didn't understand why he was meant to be synonymous with westerns when he only starred in about eight. There were far better western stars in his time like Van Cleef and Franco Nero.
jervis said on 4/Dec/17
6ft2.5 or 6ft3 peak not much in it,half an inch,im sticking to 6ft3 peak,lost a lot of height even if he was 6ft2.5 peak,more than average,now looks 5ft11.
Heightlover said on 3/Dec/17
He was 6'2.5. you all are just blind and do not really know what's is barefeet measurement. I think everybody here underestimae 1 inch. I just said this guy was very slim and if he reeally was a legit 6'3.5 you all would guess his height at 6'4 range because Clint look taller he was 6'2.5 again
Rory said on 2/Dec/17
Peak Clint was 6ft3.5, in the late 1980s he was 6ft2.75 and today he could still scrape a 5'11.75 measurement.
Rory said on 2/Dec/17
Clint looked 6ft3 range peak with relaxed posture for sure, but when measured he almost certainly cleared 6ft3. You only have to see him with guys like Hal Holbrook and David Soul to know this, 6ft-6ft1 range guys who were looking up at Clint. There was around 3 inches between those guys.
Mister lennon said on 2/Dec/17
Less than strong 6'3 for peak clint is a joke.
Heightlover said on 1/Dec/17
Richard said on 1/Dec/17
Well said! It's good to see a guy with the same thought. 100 % Agree. 6'3 could be a early measurement in his 20's He was more 6'2.5-75 and 5'11 nowdays

@Mr6footer: because people lie about their own heights and want everyone including themselves to be taller. Somewhere along the lines people began claiming their shoes and pass that to everyone else they meet by assessing them in shoes regardless of whether they measure in them or not. It’s very annoying and sad honestly but Kudos to Rob for not only starting this site but also being honest about his height and claiming 5’8” (5’8 1/8 at his lowest)
Richard said on 1/Dec/17
Eastwood was 6'3" at his peak, but 6'2" by the late 1980s. He's below 5'11" now.
Mister lennon said on 1/Dec/17

Peak neeson: solid 6'4.

Mr6footer: i have to disagree there. neeson was definitely a legit 6’4” peak. He always looked it. He wasn’t under it in fact a better chance he was a hair over like even 193.5 maybe. He was taller than Conan who i don’t believe was ever a legit 6’4 peak prob was 191cm strong 6’3. Remember Conan assessed him 6’5” of course Conan inflates everyone but Liam responded back 6’4 and a wee bit. So likely he could’ve been measured nearer 194 earlier in the day and have been 195-195.5 out of bed
Rory said on 30/Nov/17
No there was more than 2 inches between Clint and Reni. In the corridor there looked a 2 inch difference because Clints posture was extremely loose but then later by the typing pool he looked a good 2-3 inches taller. Not sure how tall Reni is because he's just something of an unknown but judging by how he looked with 6'3.5 Clint Eastwood I'd say 6'1.
